US jobs report points to protracted downturn - AND YET OBAMA'S ONLY JOBS PLAN IS CALLED AMNESTY, NO E-VERIFY & NON-ENFORCEMENT!

US jobs report points to protracted downturn



US jobs report points to protracted downturn


By Andre Damon

7 May 2011

The Labor Department said Friday that the US unemployment rate rose in April, but that the economy added more jobs than had previously been expected. Behind the increase in jobs, however, is a dismal and in many ways worsening employment situation, combined with a systematic attack on wages and social programs.



The unemployment rate grew to 9 percent, up from 8.8 percent in March. The number of employees reported by businesses increased to 244,000, higher than the 185,000 that economists expected. This is still barely enough to keep up with the growth in the labor market.



The Labor Department bases its estimate of the unemployment rate on a survey of households, while the payroll figure comes from a survey of businesses. Because of this, the two do not always move together.



The 244,000 jobs created in April represent only a small portion of the jobs that were destroyed during the downturn. Since February 2010, the US economy has created 1.8 million jobs. But this figure pales in comparison with the 8.7 million jobs that were lost since the start of the recession.



Some commentators were quick to dismiss the rise in the unemployment rate as a sign that discouraged workers were once again reentering the labor force, but there is little in the report to suggest that this is the case.



The labor force participation rate held steady last month at 64.2 percent for the fourth consecutive month, down from 66 percent in 2006. The number of people out of work likewise stayed the same at 13.7 million. The U-6 unemployment rate, which includes "discouraged workers" and people working part-time for economic reasons, grew to 15.9 percent, from 15.7 percent the month before.



For some sections of the population, unemployment is rampant. One in four teenagers looking for work cannot find it, along with 16.1 percent of African-Americans and 11.8 percent of Hispanics.



The report follows a string of dismal economic news. The Commerce Department said late last month that the US economy grew by 1.8 percent in the first quarter of 2011, significantly less than the 3.4 percent growth in the fourth quarter of last year and 4.5 percent in the third quarter of last year.



Weekly initial jobless claims likewise continued to edge up. After dipping as low as 375,000 in late February, the figure shot up to 474,000 last week. This was the fourth consecutive week in which initial claims were over 400,000, generally considered a indicator of net job losses.



The housing market, meanwhile, has continued to worsen. The S&P/Case-Shiller index of home prices in 20 major cities fell by 1.1 percent in February, the latest month for which information is available, according to figures released April 26. Nationwide, home values are down by 3.3 percent over the past year. Since the beginning of the housing market downturn in 2006, over $9 trillion has been wiped out from home values.



The US government slashed 24,000 jobs in April, only an initial product of an all-out austerity campaign at every level of the government. Local government cut 14,000 jobs, including 4,700 in education, while state governments cut 8,000 and the federal government cut 2,000. Over 557,000 government jobs have been eliminated since May of last year.



On Friday, the day the jobs report came out, New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg announced a budget proposal that would eliminated more than 6,000 teacher jobs, in addition to cutting 12 percent of funding to the city's libraries and closing 20 fire companies.



According to the Labor Department report, the manufacturing sector added 29,000 jobs last month, and 197,000 over the past year. Manufacturing grew at an annualized rate of 9.1 percent in the first quarter of 2011, compared to 1.8 percent for the rest of the economy.



However, this apparently optimistic rebound in manufacturing is based on an equally large reduction in the living standards of manufacturing workers. In recent years, gains in workforce productivity have topped six percent, as manufacturers imposed speedups and laid off workers by the tens of thousands.



Now a small portion of these workers are being rehired at far lower wages, with fewer benefits and under even more exploitative conditions. The Obama administration initiated this process with its restructuring of the auto industry, which closed auto plants throughout the country and expanded the practice of paying new-hires half the wage of existing workers.



The fall in wages has fueled sharp increases in the profitability of heavy manufacturing, including automakers General Motors and Ford, as well as Caterpillar, the construction-equipment maker. Caterpillar increased its profits five-fold over the past year, from $233 million in the first quarter of 2010, to $1.23 billion last quarter.



But these figures are only part of the overall boom in corporate profits fueled by the abysmal labor market. The first quarter of 2011 is on track to set a new record for corporate profits, according to a study conducted by the Wall Street Journal. With half of the Fortune 500 companies having reported their earnings, the newspaper expects overall corporate profits to be 26 percent higher than a year ago.



THE ENTIRE REASON THE BORDERS ARE LEFT OPEN IS TO CUT WAGES!

The danger, as Washington Post economics columnist Robert Samuelson argues, is that of “importing poverty” in the form of a new underclass—a permanent group of working poor.

“We could cut unemployment in half simply by reclaiming the jobs taken by illegal workers,” said Representative Lamar Smith of Texas, co-chairman of the Reclaim American Jobs Caucus. “President Obama is on the wrong side of the American people on immigration. The president should support policies that help citizens and legal immigrants find the jobs they need and deserve rather than fail to enforce immigration laws.”

“Obama’s rejection of any serious jobs program is part of a conscious class war policy. Two years after the financial crisis and the multi-trillion dollar bailout of the banks, the administration is spearheading a campaign by corporations to sharply increase the exploitation of the working class, using the “new normal” of mass unemployment to force workers to accept lower wages, longer hours, and more brutal working conditions.” WSWS.ORG

E-Verify- the single most successful federal program aimed at keeping illegal immigrants out of the workforce- is once again threatened. This time, E-Verify was stripped from a Senate Amendment behind closed doors and without explanation. Instead of becoming a permanent program E-verify has been reduced to only three years. Critics are calling this a stall tactic and an attempt at killing an employment enforcement system. We will have a full report tonight.

No prospect of global “economic recovery” THE RICH GET RICHER AND THEN WE GET THE BILLS FOR ALL THEIR CRIMES!

No prospect of global “economic recovery”


No prospect of global “economic recovery”


7 May 2011

Any conception that the world economy would experience a “recovery” in the wake of the global financial crisis has been shattered by the latest figures coming from Britain and the United States.



The British economy grew by only 0.5 percent in the first quarter of this year following a contraction of the same amount in the last quarter of 2010. The flatlining of the past six months has prompted warnings that Britain is on the edge of a “double dip recession.”



In the US, the annualised growth rate for the first quarter was down to 1.8 percent, a decline from the 3.1 percent recorded in the previous quarter. Over the past year, the US economy has grown by only 2.3 percent, less than the 2.5 percent considered necessary just to keep pace with the expansion of the labour force.



Fears of a global slowdown sparked sell-offs in equity and commodity markets this week as European Central Bank President Jean-Claude Tritchet indicated that an interest rate rise in June was unlikely because of the state of the European economy.



The employment situation confronting American workers is a social disaster. The average time a worker stays unemployed is now 39 weeks—the longest period on record. Young people are especially hard hit. Last year the jobless rate for 16 to 24 year-olds was 18.4 percent—also a record high.



The economic situation in both Britain and the US is marked by processes that have not been seen in the post-war period. In Britain, real earnings are set to contract for the fourth successive year in a row—the first time this has happened since the 1870s. Household disposable incomes are predicted to fall by 2 percent in real terms this year. Far from there being any return to “normal”, the financial situation remains extremely fragile with Bank of England governor, Mervyn King, warning this week that any rise in long-term interest rates would have “severe” consequences.



In the United States, while profits have risen in the past year, there has not been an economic recovery. This is because the increased profits have not come from expanding markets but are the result of cost cutting, especially the slashing of wages. Consequently, profits are not being ploughed back into new investments—the way the business cycle turns around in “normal” conditions—because US firms fear that markets will remain stagnant or may even contract.



Business fixed investment at the end of last year was about 15 percent lower than before the onset of the financial crisis, as US firms decided to hold on to their profits. As a result, their holdings of cash and other liquid assets rose to more than $1.93 trillion in the third quarter of 2010, an increase of more than 14 percent over the year.



The ramifications of the deepening American economic and social catastrophe are extending internationally through the role of the US dollar as the global currency.



In order to sustain the position of the US banks and finance houses in the aftermath of the financial crash of 2008, the US Federal Reserve has made available to them hundreds of billions of dollars at close to zero interest rates. While this policy of “quantitative easing” is expected to end in June, the Fed will continue to keep interest rates at ultra-low levels.



The result is unprecedented turmoil in international financial markets.



In a clear sign of the growing lack of confidence in the US currency, it was revealed this week that the central bank of Mexico had bought nearly 100 tonnes of gold in February and March as a way of transferring its reserves out of falling US dollar assets. The Mexican purchases, valued at about $6.4 billion at current prices, follow similar moves by China, India and Russia which have all made large gold purchases in recent years.



The falling dollar is leading both to inflation and recessionary trends. Food prices have soared by around 30 percent over the past year, adding to pressures on living standards in the poorer regions of Asia, Africa and Latin America.



At the same time, countries with flexible exchange rates are experiencing increased market pressure as their currencies rise, subjecting them to intense international competition, especially in manufacturing industry.



Brazil, whose finance minister Guido Mantega last year warned that the fall of the dollar was leading to an international currency war, is now facing the risk of “deindustrialisation” as a result of the appreciation of the Brazilian currency, the real, against the US dollar.



The chief executive of the German industrial conglomerate, Siemens, which has large investments in Brazil, told the Financial Times this week that controls had to be implemented to stop the surge in the real or the company’s export business would be crushed. “This is fundamental; there is a risk of deindustrialisation,” he said.



The rise of the real, sparked by the slide in the US dollar, is hitting all sections of manufacturing. The chief executive officer of ArcelorMittal, the country’s largest steel producer, told the Financial Times that last year was a “disaster, almost a complete disaster.”



The Australian dollar is another currency that has taken off against the US currency. From a level of 60 cents to the US dollar in 2009, the Australian currency has hit its highest level since being floated in 1983, at one point reaching $1.10. This has led to near-recessionary conditions in all sectors of the economy other than minerals and resources.



More broadly, the ongoing turmoil in global financial markets and the world economy is being accompanied by warnings from the spokesmen of international finance capital that there is no prospect of pre-crisis conditions returning. Their demands are for increasing austerity measures directed against the working class.



Announcing a 38 percent profit increase this week, the head of the ANZ banking group in Australia, Mike Smith, warned that Australian businesses had been structured for a “bull market and constant growth. What has happened is that, after the crisis, we have an adjustment where certain sections of the economy have suddenly become globally uncompetitive and the models they had operated with are no longer sustainable.” It was “unrealistic,” he said, to expect a return to “pre-crisis times.”



These warnings of a “paradigm shift” underscore the fact that the financial crisis of 2008-2009 was not a cyclical downturn but the start of a massive restructuring of economic and social relations on a global scale, aimed at driving down the social position of the working class to levels not seen since the Great Depression. The global corporate and financial elites are pressing forward with the imposition of this program. The working class must respond by initiating the struggle for political power as the first necessary step towards ending the profit system and implementing a socialist economic program on an international scale.

'Dream Act' approved by California Assembly

Jim Sanders
The Sacramento Bee

last updated: May 06, 2011 06:49:23 AM

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Illegal immigrants could receive college financial aid under legislation approved Thursday by the Assembly and apparently destined for the desk of a new Democratic governor who supports the concept.

California could add fuel to the national debate over illegal immigrants' rights by signing into law the "Dream Act" measure, Assembly Bill 130.

"This bill will ring across the country," Assemblyman Felipe Fuentes, D-Sylmar, told dozens of Latino supporters of the bill after Thursday's 51-21 vote.

AB 130, among other things, would allow a small segment of illegal immigrants – those who currently qualify for in-state college tuition – to apply for aid from private gifts or endowments that totaled more than $72 million last year.

Assemblyman Gil Cedillo proposed both AB 130 and a pending companion measure – AB 131 – that would open the financial door wider by allowing those illegal immigrants to seek Cal Grants and other public aid.

Cedillo, a Los Angeles Democrat who has pushed the issue for six years, called Thursday's vote historic because of prospects that the Democrat-controlled Senate will pass and Gov. Jerry Brown will sign one or both of his bills.

On the campaign trail last year, Brown, heavily supported by Latinos, expressed support for college aid to illegal immigrants. He has not taken a public position on AB 130, however.

Evan Westrup, Brown's spokesman, said Thursday that the "governor continues to support the principles behind the Dream Act and will closely consider legislation that reaches his desk."

Laura Alvarado, a 17-year-old undocumented student from Los Angeles, said she dreams of becoming a doctor and knows that her mother, employed at a yoga college, would be hard pressed to pay the tuition tab.

Assemblymember Fuentes Statement on Passage of the California Dream Act Out of Appropriations Committee Featured

SACRAMENTO – Assemblymember Felipe Fuentes released the following statement today. after the Assembly Appropriations Committee passed the California Dream Act by a 12-3 vote:

“I’m proud that the Assembly Appropriations Committee, which I chair, passed AB 130 – a key part of the California Dream Act today. I’d like to thank my colleagues and most importantly the Dream Act’s author and chief advocate Gil Cedillo for their hard work on this critical piece of legislation.

I was particularly encouraged to see all of the students who made the trip to the Capitol today to testify in support of the Dream Act. This bill is about them and ensuring that they and future generations are afforded an equal right to a quality education.

The Dream Act means hope, opportunity and success for millions of young people who know California and America as their home. From a moral perspective, this is simply a matter of doing what is right for California and what is just for millions of young people who know California and America as home.

I look forward to working with Mr. Cedillo and all of the supporters of the California Dream Act to ensure that we finally win this fight for justice and equality.”

MEXIFORNIA – THE SHATTERING OF THE AMERICAN DREAM

WITH THE MEXICAN INVASION AND OCCUPATION





*

"Victor Davis Hanson brings a lifetime of experience in California's Central Valley to this indictment of multiculturalism and mass immigration." -- Mark Krikorian, Center for Immigration Studies



*

READER’S REVIEW (source: AMAZON)

If you don't understand something or disagree with a concept then the best way to conceal your ignorance or discredit the idea is to call it "racist". Dr. Hanson did not have to go very far out on a limb to make the point that non assimilation of Chicanos to American culture is divisive and destructive - and that it is the new immigrant that is failing to adapt. Great book, on point and very timely.



*Starred Review*

Classics professor Hanson is also, like generations of his family before him, a fruit farmer in California's central valley. He has employed immigrants, seen them flood his community during the last 30 years of mass flight from Mexico, and endured the crime associated with illegal immigrants. Hanson is immensely sympathetic to poor Mexicans, however, and the most powerful chapter here outlines the harried life of the illegal alien. But he hates to see the ordered culture in which he grew up drowned by an alien inundation whose undeserving beneficiaries are Mexico's kleptocratic rulers, for whom an open border is a safety valve expelling the potential for democratic change. The four solutions to the mess that Hanson enumerates include continuing de facto open borders but insisting on rapid acculturation; patrolling the border effectively and reducing legal immigration; imposing "sweeping restrictions on immigration" and ending Mexican chauvinism in the U.S.; and allowing present policies to make California increasingly mirror an unreformed Mexico. Hanson thinks that the U.S. "still need not do everything right" to prevent social collapse in the Southwest and that the totalitarian uniformity of valueless mass culture may soften that collapse. He also sees very clearly what has brought this crisis on: the American globalist ideology's lust for cheap labor and emphasis on "raw inclusiveness" instead of "standards and taste."

ALL REVIEWS ARE FROM AMAZON.com



REVIEW 1

This review is from: Mexifornia: A State of Becoming (Hardcover)

This book shows how Mexico sends their poor to America to work, so they don't have to improve their own country, and how we use these people for cheap labor so that we can sell things for less. It's a deal made between the two countries. The trouble is, it's not what American citizens want. The "servants of the people", the representatives, are not listening to us, so it's always exciting to read something that really tells it like it is.

This book is written from the viewpoint of someone who actually lives with these Mexican immigrants. The rich people who want to use them in their businesses for cheap labor don't live with them; the liberal elites who push for them to get amnesty don't live with them. This guy lives among them, and knows the problems first hand, and as I suspected, there are many, and they're not pretty.

He writes very bluntly about the problems, but not without sympathy for the Mexican immigrants whose own country won't take care of them. With all the new books out and the discussions going on about legal and illegal immigration, and what the American people want, I'm hoping that these problems will be solved. This book is one of the best on the subject, because it is written from a viewpoint of personal experience.

*

REVIEW 2

Victor Hanson combines scholarship (Professor at Cal State) with personal experience (life long resident and farmer in central CA. who has Mexican-American family and friends) to present a thoughtful look at the illegal Mexican immigration crisis. Hanson argues that the reason for this crisis is that both ends of the political spectrum have vested interests in continuing the unabated entry of illegal Mexicans. Republicans wish to placate business interests with cheap labor and Democrats hope for a future electoral base. Hanson further explains that this wave is not like the earlier waves of Polish, Jewish, or Italian immigration which was of a fixed duration and where the connection of the new immigrant to the Homeland was more thoroughly severed.

This book is well written and to the point (approx. 140 pages). I have also seen Victor Hanson on several political talk shows. He is well spoken and mild mannered which is a welcome relief from the cacophonous diatribe we too often get on cable news channels.

*

REVIEW 3

As one who shares the author's ethnic,cultural and geographical heritage, I thought Hanson did a marvelous job of assessing California's major social issue, and one of America's primary problems. Like Hanson, I was born and reared in Fresno County, albeit some 25 miles from his native Selma. I can attest to the accuracy of his description of Selma and the Central Valley in the 1950's.

As a child, my associates included Hispanics; as a teenager working in the fig and peach orchards, my fellow workers were Hispanic. During my professional career, I have hired and promoted many Hispanics.

Hanson's Scandinavian ancestors (from Sweden) and mine (from Denmark) came to America legally and without speaking English, but they succeeded--without bilingual classes, welfare, government subsidies, or that phenomenon known as "affirmative action", which is being rapidly unmasked as nothing, more or less, than "reverse discrimination". Hanson deftly exposes the race industry as an amalgam of organizations and individuals who are quick to attack the Anglo for any slight, either real or imagined, but who, in the long run, seem not to do much for those whom they purport to serve.

As a criminologist, I am well aware of the violence committed by Hispanic Gangs, and the fact that those gangsters who do not wind up in the morgue soon become expensive inmates in our overcrowded prison system, costing taxpayers some $25k per year each. I am equally aware of the many outstanding Hispanic officers, prosecutors, and judges with whom I've worked.

Hanson has eloquently described the failure of our educational programs to work toward an assimilated America, as well as the failure of the "separatists" in the race industry.

The one failure which, to my surprise, he did not identify is that of our elected officials who establish public policy. When Hanson and I were youngsters/young men in the Central Valley, the politicians seemed to act in the best interests of their constituencies. Today,by and large, our politicians have little integrity, but rather pander incessantly to special interests which, in turn, provide them with campaign funds, endorsements,and precinct workers.It is common knowledge that, in Sacramento, legislative votes are "for sale" almost daily. Until we can restore some integrity among our public officials, we will not move toward a better California--better for Hispanics, Anglos, African Americans, Asians, and all others!

Except for his failure to discuss the lack of integrity among many of our elected officials, Hanson has done an admirable job. Mexifornia should be on the "must read" list of all who are concerned about the future of Californians, nothwithstanding the color of their skins!

DICK LAMM, GOVERNOR OF COLORADO



REVIEW 4

We know Dick Lamm as the former Governor of Colorado. In that context his thoughts are particularly poignant. Last week there was an immigration overpopulation conference in Washington, DC, filled to capacity by many of America's finest minds and leaders. A brilliant college professor by the name of Victor Hansen Davis talked about his latest book, "Mexifornia," explaining how immigration - both legal and illegal was destroying the entire state of California. He said it would march across the country until it destroyed all vestiges of The American Dream.



Moments later, former Colorado Governor Richard D. Lamm stood up and gave a stunning speech on how to destroy America. The audience sat spellbound as he described eight methods for the destruction of the United States. He said, "If you believe that America is too smug, too self-satisfied, too rich, then let's destroy! America. It is not that hard to do. No nation in history has survived the ravages of time. Arnold Toynbee observed that all great civilizations rise and fall and that 'An autopsy of history would show that all great nations commit suicide.'"



"Here is how they do it," Lamm said: "First, to destroy America, turn America into a bilingual or multi-lingual and bicultural country." History shows that no nation can survive the tension, conflict, and antagonism of two or more competing languages and cultures. It is a blessing for an individual to be bilingual; however, it is a curse for a society to be bilingual. The historical scholar, Seymour Lipset, put it this way: "The histories of bilingual and bi-cultural societies that do not assimilate are histories of turmoil, tension, and

tragedy." Canada, Belgium, Malaysia, and Lebanon all face crises of national existence in which minorities press for autonomy, if not independence. Pakistan and Cyprus have divided. Nigeria suppressed an ethnic rebellion. France faces difficulties with Basques, Bretons, and Corsicans."



Lamm went on: Second, to destroy America, "Invent 'multiculturalism' and encourage immigrants to maintain their culture. I would make it an article of belief that all cultures are equal. That there are no cultural differences. I would make it an article of faith that the Black and Hispanic dropout rates are due solely to prejudice and

discrimination by the majority. Every other explanation is out of bounds.



Third, "We could make the United States an 'Hispanic Quebec' without much effort. The key is to celebrate diversity rather than unity. As Benjamin Schwarz said in the Atlantic Monthly recently: "The apparent success of our own multiethnic and multicultural experiment might have been achieved not by tolerance but by hegemony. Without the dominance that once dictated ethnocentricity and what it meant to be an American, we! are left with only tolerance and pluralism to hold us together." Lamm said, "I would encourage all immigrants to keep their own language and culture. I would replace the melting pot metaphor with the salad bowl metaphor. It is important to ensure that we have

various cultural subgroups living in America enforcing their differences rather than as Americans, emphasizing their similarities."



"Fourth, I would make our fastest growing demographic group the least educated. I would add a second underclass, unassimilated, undereducated, and antagonistic to our population. I would have this second underclass have a 50% dropout rate from high school."



"My fifth point for destroying America would be to get big foundations and business to give these efforts lots of money. I would invest in ethnic identity, and I would establish the cult of 'Victimology.' I would get all minorities to think that their lack of success was the fault of the majority. I would start a grievance industry blaming all

minority failure on the majority population."



"My sixth plan for America's downfall would include dual citizenship, and promote divided loyalties. I would celebrate diversity over unity. I would stress differences rather than similarities. Diverse people worldwide are mostly engaged in hating each other - that is, when they are not killing each other. A diverse, peaceful, or stable society is against most historical precedent. People undervalue the unity it takes to keep a nation together. Look at the ancient Greeks. The Greeks believed that they belonged to the same race; they possessed a common language and literature; and they worshipped the same gods. All Greece took part in the Olympic games. A common enemy, Persia, threatened their liberty. Yet all these bonds were not strong enough to overcome two factors: local patriotism and geographical conditions that nurtured political divisions. Greece fell. "E. Pluribus Unum" -- From many, one. In that historical reality, if we put the emphasis on the 'pluribus' instead of the 'Unum,' we will balkanize America as surely as Kosovo."



"Next to last, I would place all subjects off limits; make it taboo to talk about anything against the cult of 'diversity.' I would find a word similar to 'heretic' in the 16th century - that stopped discussion and paralyzed thinking. Words like 'racist' or 'xenophobe' halt discussion and debate. Having made America a bilingual/bicultural country, having established multi-culturism, having the large foundations fund the! doctrine of 'Victimology,' I would next make it impossible to enforce our immigration laws. I would develop a mantra: That because immigration has been good for America, it must always be good. I would make every individual immigrant symmetric and ignore the cumulative impact of millions of them."



In the last minute of his speech, Governor Lamm wiped his brow. Profound silence followed. Finally he said,. "Lastly, I would censor Victor Hanson Davis's book "Mexifornia." His book is dangerous. It exposes the plan to destroy America. If you feel America. deserves to be destroyed, don't read that book."



There was no applause. A chilling fear quietly rose like an ominous cloud above every attendee at the conference Every American in that room knew that everything Lamm enumerated was proceeding methodically, quietly, darkly, yet pervasively across the United States today.



Discussion is being suppressed. Over 100 languages are ripping the foundation of our educational system and national cohesiveness. Even barbaric cultures that practice female genital mutilation are growing as we celebrate 'diversity.' American jobs are vanishing into the Third World as corporations create a Third World in America - take note of California and other states - to date, ten million illegal aliens and growing fast. It is reminiscent of George Orwell's book "1984." In that story, three slogans are engraved in the Ministry of Truth building: "War is peace," "Freedom is slavery," and "Ignorance is strength."



Governor Lamm walked back to his seat. It dawned on everyone at the conference that our nation and the future of this great democracy is deeply in trouble and worsening fast. If we don't get this immigration monster stopped within three years, it will rage like a California wildfire and destroy everything in its path, especially The American Dream.

FIVE THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT LA RAZA “THE RACE”





by Michelle Malkin



Only in America could critics of a group called "The Race" be labeled racists. Such is the triumph of left-wing identity chauvinists, whose aggressive activists and supine abettors have succeeded in redefining all opposition as "hate."

Both Barack Obama and John McCain will speak this week in San Diego at the annual conference of the National Council of La Raza, the Latino organization whose name is Spanish for, yes, "The Race." Can you imagine Obama and McCain paying homage to a group of white people who called themselves that? No matter. The presidential candidates and the media have legitimized "The Race" as a mainstream ethnic lobbying group and marginalized its critics as intolerant bigots. The unvarnished truth is that the group is a radical ethnic nationalist outfit that abuses your tax dollars and milks PC politics to undermine our sovereignty.

*

Here are 15 things you should know about "The Race":

*

15. "The Race" supports driver's licenses for illegal aliens.

*

14."The Race" demands in-state tuition discounts for illegal alien students that are not available to law-abiding U.S. citizens and law-abiding legal immigrants.

*

13. "The Race" vehemently opposes cooperative immigration enforcement efforts between local, state and federal authorities.

*

12. "The Race" opposes a secure fence on the southern border.

*

11. "The Race" joined the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee in a failed lawsuit attempt to prevent the feds from entering immigration information into a key national crime database -- and to prevent local police officers from accessing the data.

*

10. "The Race" opposed the state of Oklahoma's tough immigration-enforcement-first laws, which cut off welfare to illegal aliens, put teeth in employer sanctions and strengthened local-federal cooperation and information sharing.

*

9. "The Race" joined other open-borders, anti-assimilationists and sued to prevent Proposition 227, California's bilingual education reform ballot initiative, from becoming law.

*

8. "The Race" bitterly protested common-sense voter ID provisions as an "absolute disgrace."

*

7. "The Race" has consistently opposed post-9/11 national security measures at every turn.

*

6. Former "Race" president Raul Yzaguirre, Hillary Clinton's Hispanic outreach adviser, said this: "U.S. English is to Hispanics as the Ku Klux Klan is to blacks." He was referring to U.S. English, the nation's oldest, largest citizens' action group dedicated to preserving the unifying role of the English language in the United States. "The Race" also pioneered Orwellian open-borders Newspeak and advised the Mexican government on how to lobby for illegal alien amnesty while avoiding the terms "illegal" and "amnesty."

*

5. "The Race" gives mainstream cover to a poisonous subset of ideological satellites, led by Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlan, or Chicano Student Movement of Aztlan (MEChA). The late GOP Rep. Charlie Norwood rightly characterized the organization as "a radical racist group … one of the most anti-American groups in the country, which has permeated U.S. campuses since the 1960s, and continues its push to carve a racist nation out of the American West."

*

4. "The Race" is currently leading a smear campaign against staunch immigration enforcement leaders and has called for TV and cable news networks to keep immigration enforcement proponents off the airwaves -- in addition to pushing for Fairness Doctrine policies to shut up their foes. The New York Times reported that current "Race" president Janet Murguia believes "hate speech" should "not be tolerated, even if such censorship were a violation of First Amendment rights."

*

3. "The Race" sponsors militant ethnic nationalist charter schools subsidized by your public tax dollars (at least $8 million in federal education grants). The schools include Aztlan Academy in Tucson, Ariz., the Mexicayotl Academy in Nogales, Ariz., Academia Cesar Chavez Charter School in St. Paul, Minn., and La Academia Semillas del Pueblo in Los Angeles, whose principal inveighed: "We don't want to drink from a White water fountain, we have our own wells and our natural reservoirs and our way of collecting rain in our aqueducts. We don't need a White water fountain … ultimately the White way, the American way, the neo liberal, capitalist way of life will eventually lead to our own destruction."

*

2. "The Race" has perfected the art of the PC shakedown at taxpayer expense, pushing relentlessly to lower home loan standards for Hispanic borrowers, reaping millions in federal "mortgage counseling" grants, seeking special multimillion-dollar earmarks and partnering with banks that do business with illegal aliens.

*

1. "The Race" thrives on ethnic supremacy -- and the elite sheeple's unwillingness to call it what it is. As historian Victor Davis Hanson observes: "[The] organization's very nomenclature 'The National Council of La Raza' is hate speech to the core. Despite all the contortions of the group, Raza (as its Latin cognate suggests) reflects the meaning of 'race' in Spanish, not 'the people' -- and that's precisely why we don't hear of something like 'The National Council of the People,' which would not confer the buzz notion of ethnic, racial and tribal chauvinism."

*

The fringe is the center. The center is the fringe. Viva La Raza.

Obama Seeks Brother of "Chicago Mob Boss" for Top White House Post

The roaches and con-artist, fake journalist on cable news are all lying about William Daley being all this and all that, this man is an open borders, down with America, free trade globalist. MSNBC and Gretta "the Scientology" Van Susteren from Fox News are knowingly deceiving the public about D. Issa & his letter to "business owners"=which they made into such a BIG DAM DEAL, but no one says anything when Barrack Hussein Obama, comes around with all of these shady bankers, hedge fund managers and Wall St. Tycoons, which he puts in his cabinet. All of Obama's meeting with Wall Street asking, "What can I do for you?" is never something covered by Keith Oberman or Rachel Maddow.

(Bloomberg) -- President Barack Obama is considering naming William Daley, a JPMorgan Chase & Co. executive and former U.S. Commerce secretary, to a high-level administration post, possibly White House chief of staff, people familiar with the matter said.

Such a move, which is still under discussion, would bring a Washington veteran -- and someone with strong business ties -- into the administration as Obama sets out an agenda for the second half of his term while dealing with a Republican majority in the House of Representatives.

JPMorgan CEO Dimon 2010 pay package is $20.8

Jamie Dimon, the CEO of JPMorgan Chase & Co., saw his 2010 compensation rise to $20.77 million from $12.65 million in 2009, according to an Associated Press analysis of data filed with regulators on Thursday.

The Associated Press

NEW YORK —

Jamie Dimon, the CEO of JPMorgan Chase & Co., saw his 2010 compensation rise to $20.77 million from $12.65 million in 2009, according to an Associated Press analysis of data filed with regulators on Thursday.

In 2010, JPMorgan was the best performing among the four largest banks in the country. Its net income totaled $17.37 billion, up 48 percent from $11.73 billion in the previous year.

Last month, JPMorgan along with a few other banks were given clearance by the U.S. Federal Reserve to increase their dividends. JPMorgan Chase increased its quarterly dividend by more than any other bank, to 25 cents a share from 5 cents. Most U.S. banks slashed their dividends during the financial crisis to conserve cash.

JPMorgan also demonstrated the strength of its balance sheet by authorizing a $15 billion multiyear stock repurchase program, of which up to $8 billion is authorized for 2011.

As part of his compensation package, Dimon received a salary of $1 million, a cash bonus of $5 million, stock awards of $7.95 million, and stock options worth $6.24 million for the year.

Dimon also received perks worth $579,624, which included $421,458 in moving expenses, $95,293 for air travel, and $45,730 for car. Dimon's family had moved from Chicago in 2007, but his house was sold in 2010. His relocation expenses and included $306,000 in real estate agent commission and fees.

JPMorgan's chief financial officer Douglas Braunstein's compensation totaled $15.23 million, while James Staley the CEO of its investment banking unit received $13.29 million.

The Associated Press formula calculates an executive's total compensation during the last fiscal year by adding salary, bonuses, perks, above-market interest the company pays on deferred compensation and the estimated value of stock and stock options awarded during the year. The AP formula does not count changes in the present value of pension benefits. That makes the AP total slightly different in most cases from the total reported by companies to the Securities and Exchange Commission.

The value that a company assigned to an executive's stock and option awards for 2010 was the present value of what the company expected the awards to be worth to the executive over time. Companies use one of several formulas to calculate that value. However, the number is just an estimate, and what an executive ultimately receives will depend on the performance of the company's stock in the years after the awards are granted. Most stock compensation programs require an executive to wait a specified amount of time to receive shares or exercise options.

J.P. Morgan in talks with SEC to settle CDO probe

By David S. Hilzenrath, Published: May 6

J.P. Morgan Chase said Friday that it may be close to settling an SEC investigation focused on its role in the sale of complex financial instruments tied to mortgages.

A wider federal probe involves exotic securities known as collateralized debt obligations, or CDOs, which have been cited as a major contributor to the financial crisis that followed the meltdown of the housing market.

J.P. Morgan “is currently in advanced discussions” with the enforcement staff of the Securities and Exchange Commission “concerning a potential resolution,” the bank said in a report filed with the SEC.

The bank said it has been cooperating with the agency.

If the investigation leads to enforcement action against the giant Wall Street firm, it would be one of a number targeting major financial institutions for conduct related to the financial crisis.

Last summer, Goldman Sachs agreed to pay $550 million to settle SEC charges that it misled investors when it marketed a CDO tied to subprime mortgages.

Goldman did not disclose to investors that it had allowed a hedge fund called Paulson & Co. to help choose mortgage securities for inclusion in the CDO. Paulson was betting against the instrument, putting its interests at odds with those of investors buying the CDO. Investors allegedly lost more than $1 billion.

Last month, the SEC accused Wachovia Capital Markets of cheating investors as the housing market unraveled. The SEC accused Wachovia of unloading deteriorating assets on unwitting investors at inflated prices.

Wachovia Capital Markets, now known as Wells Fargo Securities, agreed to pay a $4.45 million penalty and to give up $6.75 million of allegedly ill-gotten gains.

J.P. Morgan said there is no assurance that it will conclude a settlement with the SEC.

Like other big banks, J.P. Morgan is facing a tangle of investigations and lawsuits related to the housing bubble and its aftermath.

It is also dealing with the SEC on other matters.

The SEC and other regulators have been investigating it for possible antitrust violations in the municipal bond arena. In regulatory disclosures about the municipal bond investigation, J.P. Morgan has said the Philadelphia office of the SEC has told it that it intends to recommend civil charges against the bank.

The bank said it is trying to negotiate a resolution.

UBS, the big Swiss bank, agreed to pay $160 million earlier this week to settle charges that it profited from rigging municipal bond transactions.

Manassas man key player in fake-ID card ring

By Dana Hedgpeth, Published: May 6

Illegal immigrants in Northern Virginia knew where to go if they needed a high-quality fake green card or Social Security card: They found Eulalio A. Cruz.

From his Manassas home, Cruz, 33, sent cellphone photos of customers to his computer. He’d add addresses and birth dates, used the right kind of ink, and printed the fakes on card stock with holographic images. Sets of documents went for $120 a pop. He’d use a series of runners to make the exchanges.

Federal immigration officials say that Cruz, who this week pleaded guilty to racketeering in federal court in Richmond, was a key player in one of the largest and most sophisticated document mills they have uncovered. His Manassas operation was part of 19 that ran in 11 states, stretching from Nashville to Providence, R.I., officials said. Each year, the ring produced between 10,000 and 15,000 fake documents. They wired at least $1 million to the bosses in Mexico.

As the federal and state governments continue to crack down on illegal immigration, such document mills are becoming a growing obstacle. Immigrants, seeking to skirt local and national laws, need the documents to work and drive. Cruz’s ring turned to violence, prosecutors said, to protect its turf from rivals, just as drug dealers have done for decades.

Authorities say the ring Cruz worked for was unique. Far more sophisticated and productive than most of the mom and pop shops selling fake documents, it operated under a strict chain of command, covered a large geographic area and produced realistic counterfeits.

“It was very much like a legitimate business,” said James C. Spero, deputy assistant director for the Homeland Security Investigations division of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. “If you worked hard, you could work your way up higher in the organization.”

Cruz, prosecutors say, reported directly to the “national supervisor” on the U.S. side of the operation: Israel Cruz Millan, who was known by his Spanish nickname “El Muerto,” which means “the dead one.” Millan is awaiting trial.

Based in North Carolina, Millan was part chief operating officer, part enforcer, authorities say. He held regular conference calls and insisted that cell managers submit detailed inventory lists of their ink cartridges, paper and other supplies, prosecutors allege. Managers provided biweekly sales reports. One note from Nashville showed $4,150 in proceeds and $1,684 in expenses.

Each cell’s success depended heavily on runners who sought out customers at grocery stores, laundromats and bars, authorities said. Sometimes they even passed out business cards advertising their services.

Proceeds were divided up. Runners, who were expected to deliver seven to 10 customers a week, typically got a few hundred dollars, attorneys involved in the case said. Managers got a fixed salary of between $300 and $400 a week. Millan took a cut, and the rest of the money went to Mexico.

The cells used code names to hide their activity. Social Security cards, printed in blue ink, were known as “smurfs,” authorities said. “New ones” meant a customer wanted a green card. They called the business cards “18s,” because that’s how many fit on a sheet.

Workers who didn’t follow the boss’s strict protocol or didn’t sell enough fake documents were punished, federal officials said. They were spanked, had their eyebrows shaved or were forced to wear weights.

Stealing from the organization was the “ultimate no-no,” one prosecutor said.

In October, Millan hosted a conference call with managers from across the country, according to court papers. He told them that one worker had pocketed the proceeds from selling fake Social Security cards. Millan beat the man so the group could hear his screams, authorities said.

“The point was to say, ‘I’m in charge. Nobody steals from me and this organization, or this is what will happen to you,’ ” said Neil H. MacBride, U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia, whose office is prosecuting the case.

The group also turned to violence to protect its turf.

In 2009, members of the ring posed as customers buying fake identification cards from competitors and arranged to meet them at a house in Richmond, according to court papers. They bound the men’s hands, feet and mouth with duct tape and beat them with a bat, authorities say. One of Millan’s crew put the barrel of a gun in one man’s mouth and warned him to stay out of their selling area.

In Little Rock, authorities said, a competitor was left for dead after a group working for Millan lured the man and one of his partners to an abandoned trailer, where they were attacked and beaten.

“They resorted to brutal, ruthless violence to support the criminal enterprise,” MacBride said.

Federal agents said they received a tip about Millan’s document ring and moved in in November in an effort involving about 250 officers in nearly a dozen states.

In all, 27 people were arrested on a range of charges including making and selling false documents, gun possession, racketeering, kidnapping, and, in one case, murder. Sixteen people, including Cruz, pleaded guilty in connection with the ring. Two defendants are fugitives in Mexico.

Millan is expected to go on trial later this year.

In Cruz’s Manassas home, authorities found more than 100 fraudulent documents as well as printing
