NAFTA, the BUSH, CLINTON(S), and OBAMA DEVICE TO DESTROY THE AMERICAN MIDDLE-CLASS…. Is it working?
“This nation no longer is a democratic republic...rather it has become a tool of the super-rich members of the above mentioned elite who preselect our presidents based on their cooperation and complicity with the elite’s ultimate goals. Obama has, in their opinion done superbly carrying out the plans well laid out for him by his backers.”
Obama Quietly Erasing Borders
“Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) warned his colleagues in Congress that Americans will vote them out of office in November if they do not act this week to thwart President Barack Obama's plans to grant work permits and amnesty to up to eight million more Americans via executive fiat.”
THE OBAMA TRADE AGREEMENT: HIS SECRET MISSION TO CIRCUMVENT OUR LAWS AND BORDERS FOR NAFTA OPEN BORDERS TO KEEP WAGES DEPRESSED.
President Obama, whose push for vastly higher levels of immigration was recently halted a federal court in Texas, would gain vast new powers to change immigration law and practice under a looming trade agreement, according to Breitbart News.
Breitbart asked “immigration experts” to review pending trade agreement documents that have been posted online by Wikileaks and Rosemary Jenks, the director of government relations for Numbers USA, who reported the dangers.
She said the documentation reveals seemingly innocuous changes such as the removal of an economic needs test for visa applications, a shorter time limit for processing applications, but together they reveal the agenda.
“The existence of these 10 pages on immigration in the Trade and Services Agreement make it absolutely clear in my mind that the administration is negotiating immigration – and for them to say they are not – they have a lot of explaining to do based on the actual text in this agreement,” Jenks told Breitbart News.
She was referring to Obama’s Trade in Services Act (TISA), one of several deals that could be fast-tracked if Republicans in the U.S. House agree.
Along with TISA, the administration has negotiated the Trans-Pacific Partnership and the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership.
Obama wants to pass Trade Promotion Authority under which he could fast-track the trade bills. The TPA would not allow amendments, and the Breitbart report said any member of Congress who votes for it “would technically also be voting to massively expand President Obama’s executive authority when it comes to immigration matters.”
The analysis found that TISA is written to include a listing of about 40 industries “where potentially the U.S. visa processes would have to change to accommodate the requirements within the agreement.”
In “Adios, America!” commentator and bestselling author Ann Coulter tackles the immigration issue headon and takes on all comers, from La Raza to Republicans.
“Jenks explained that under the agreement, the terms don’t have an economic needs based test, which currently U.S. law requires for some types of visa applications in order to show there aren’t American workers available to fill positions,” the analysis said.
Then on another page, the agreement states, “The period of processing applications may not exceed 30 days.”
It’s a massive problem for the U.S. because so many visa applications take longer than 30 days, according to Jenks.
“We will not be able to meet those requirements without essentially our government becoming a rubber stamp,” she said.
She warned that the “fact that there’s a footnote in this agreement that says that face to face interviews are too burdensome … we’re supposed to be doing face to face interviews with applicants for temporary visas.”
According to the State Department Consular Officer, she said, “it’s the in person interviews that really give the consular officer an opportunity to determine – is this person is a criminal, is this person a terrorist … all of those things are more easily determined when you’re sitting face to face with someone and asking those questions.”
Thirdly, she noted that there appears to be an opening to create agreements that extend for more than seven years, which would be a change in current U.S. law.
Breitbart noted the high level of secrecy imposed by the Obama administration on its plans for immigration changes.
TISA is even more secretive than TPP, the report said.
“Lawmakers on Capitol Hill can review the text of TPP in a secret, secured room inside the Capitol – and in some cases can bring staffers who have high enough security clearances – but with TiSA, no such draft text is available,” the report said.
“The Senate passed the TPA last month, so it is up to the House to put the brakes on Obama’s unilateral power. The House could vote as early as Friday on fast-track, but may head into next week. By all counts, it’s going to be a very tight vote – and may not pass. It remains to be seen what will happen in light of leaks about things like the immigration provisions of TiSA – which deals with 24 separate parties, mostly different nations but also the European Union. It is focused on increasing the free flow of services worldwide – and with that, comes labor. Labor means immigration and guestworkers,” the report said.
Jenks’ analysis said the implication is that the U.S. would be subject to the provisions.
“There is nothing in there that says otherwise, and there is no question in my mind that some of the provisions in this Trade and Services Agreement would require the United States to change its immigration laws,” she said.
A Republican aide on Capitol Hill told WND, “This is the smoking gun that shows Paul Ryan wasn’t telling the truth.”
Wisconsin Republican Rep. Paul Ryan said recently it was “an urban legend” that TPP contained language that would advance Obama’s immigration agenda. The aide said the TPA vote moves all of the trade bills, so whether the language is in TPP or TISA doesn’t matter.
“There’s no way we (House Republicans) would sign off on immigration reform in the trade agreements,” Ryan had said.
It’s just one of the ways Obama is moving to loosen immigration practices in the U.S.
WND reported that even though a federal appeals court in Texas upheld a ruling halting his administration’s orders on the issue, the agenda appears to be moving forward.
Obama last fall announced plans to delay the deportation of as many as 5 million illegal aliens through memos issued by appointees.
But then the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services announced the extension of a program allowing spouses of certain visa holders to obtain work permits. According to the Washington Times, the move will, in 90 days, allow some 180,000 immigrants to be eligible for the benefit “in the first year.”
“Allowing the spouses of these visa holders to legally work in the United States makes perfect sense,” the newspaper quoted agency chief Leon Rodriguez saying. “It helps U.S. businesses keep their highly skilled workers by increasing the chances these workers will choose to stay in this country during the transition from temporary workers to permanent residents.”
WND also reported the Washington watchdog Judicial Watch revealed the Obama administration was moving quickly on contracts for the president’s amnesty even though it had been ordered to stop.
Judicial Watch said it had a source inside the industry of government contracts who said there is “no indication that the court order has impacted, slowed down or modified the procurement in any way.”
“They’re really rushing into it,” the source said.
Judicial Watch cited a government solicitation for companies to provide services for Obama’s plans to process illegal aliens and give them many of the privileges of citizenship.
The deal is immense, Judicial Watch said, with an estimated need for between 200 and 600 contractors.
The government solicitation described itself as a “combined synopsis/solicitation for commercial services prepared in accordance with the format in FAR Subpart 12.6, as supplemented with additional information included in this notice.”
“This announcement constitutes the only solicitation and proposals are being requested. Attached to this combined synopsis/solicitation for commercial services is a request for proposal with proposals due on February 20, 2015. This combined synopsis/solicitation is for records support services in support of deferred action for parents of U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents (hereafter referred to as DAPA). Industry is encouraged to review the request for proposal and ask questions by January 30, 2015. USCIS intends to award a contract from this solicitation in March 2015 in order to provide the awardee time to hire, train, and process security clearances; and for full performance to commence on May 19, 2015.”
“The complex deal is being rushed through at a ‘full-throttle pace’ extremely rare for such a huge venture that’s sure to radically change the current system, according to JW’s source, who has worked for decades as a contract expert at the highest levels of government,” the group said.
But administration officials were unabashed in their intent.
Cecilia Munoz, White House domestic policy director, addressed the issue: “It’s important to put [the judge's ruling] in context, because the broader executive actions are moving forward. The administration continues to implement the portions of the actions that the president and the Department of Homeland Security took, which were not affected by the court’s ruling.”
However, the actual order itself said: “The United States of America, its departments, agencies, officers, agents and employees and Jeh Johnson, secretary of the Department of Homeland Security; R. Gil Kerlikowske, commissioner of United States customs and Border Protection; Ronald D. Vitiello, deputy chief of United States Border Patrol, United States Customs and Border Protection; Thomas S. Winkowski, acting director of United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement; and Leon Rodriguez, director of United States Citizenship and Immigration Services are hereby enjoined from implementing any and all aspects or phases of the Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents.”
And even Obama himself said he couldn’t do it alone.
House Speaker John Boehner has listed online 22 times when Obama has made such statements.
For example, in October 2010, Obama said: “I am president, I am not king. I can’t do these things just by myself. … I’ve got to have some partners to do it. … If Congress has laws on the books that says that people who are here who are not documented have to be deported, then I can exercise some flexibility in terms of where we deploy our resources, to focus on people who are really causing problems as opposed to families who are just trying to work and support themselves. But there’s a limit to the discretion that I can show because I am obliged to execute the law. … I can’t just make the laws up by myself.”

Immigrating America Into a Colony of Mexico
Article by Frosty Wooldridge
America faces a greater and more dangerous threat from within than from without. While our armed forces secure Afghanistan and Iraq, our own borders stand unguarded 24 hours a day. Al-Qaeda insurgents plan their next attacks somewhere inside our country. They advocate a violent overthrow of America.
By Paul Bremmer
President Obama is instigating a war on the United States, according to longtime conservative icon Phyllis Schlafly. But the president hasn’t dropped a bomb or fired a shot; rather, he has opened the country to tens of millions of immigrants and refugees from all over the world, including from Muslim countries that hate America.
In a study released last fall, the Center for Immigration Studies reported nearly 300,000 immigrants from predominantly Muslim countries entered the United States from 2010 to 2013. That brought the total number of immigrants from predominantly Muslim countries to 2.4 million, compared to 2.1 million in 2010 and 1.5 million in 2000.
However, simple immigration is not the whole story. Each year, the U.S. also welcomes thousands of refugees – foreigners who seek refuge in the U.S. because they either were persecuted or fear persecution in their home countries.

The State Department, which oversees the refugee resettlement program, aims to resettle 70,000 total refugees a year. It is estimated that roughly 40 percent of all refugees come from predominantly Muslim countries. WND has reported the U.S. has accepted nearly 2 million refugees from Muslim countries since 1992.
The Syrian civil war has created thousands of refugees. The U.S. accepted an initial batch of 9,000 last December, but some resettlement agencies were not satisfied, as they lobbied for the U.S. to take in at least 75,000 Syrian refugees over the next five years.
“It’s clear the administration does want to dramatically accelerate immigration from Syria through the refugee program, and that is very troubling because there is no way to accurately vet or carefully vet people for their prior bad acts and associations with terrorism,” Camarota told WND. “The records were always weak, and the regime always corrupt, and now what records did exist are largely gone.”
Schlafly, author of “Who Killed the American Family?,” also is concerned about Middle Eastern refugees who don’t blend in with the American way of life and who may wish America harm.
“Obama is trying to absolutely change America by bringing in people who have no sympathy with what Americans believe,” she declared. “They have no concept of limited government, of constitutional government, of rule of law, et cetera. There’s no reason we should let in people who don’t even like America.”
However, Camarota disagreed that Obama is solely to blame for the massive immigration and refugee resettlement.
“For the most part, our immigration system runs on autopilot, with the acquiescence of both parties,” Camarota said. “It’s just not right to think of this – of mass legal immigration, refugees, family immigration – as being attributable to Obama.
“What I do think you could criticize this administration for, but it’s not clear that other administrations were very different, is incredible foolishness when thinking about these questions.”
Camarota cited the Somali Bantus as an example. He said they were captured in Mozambique and brought to Somalia as slaves, where they reside today as a marginalized ethnic minority. Their kinsmen still live in Mozambique. Camarota argued it would make sense for the U.S. government to help the Bantus return to Mozambique, especially since Mozambique has expressed a willingness to take them back. But instead, the U.S. has resettled them in America.
Camarota also said the U.S. is now accepting refugees from Bhutan who originally come from Nepal.
“It would make so much more sense to help Nepal take those folks back,” he reasoned.
Similarly, Camarota argues the U.S. should help Middle Eastern refugees not by bringing them to the U.S. but by helping other countries in the Middle East find a place for them.
“There’s a cultural affinity there,” he said. “They would be nearby; then they’d be much more likely to return to their homes once the war’s over, rather than coming to the other side of the world here in America.”
It will cost money to help refugees settle overseas, Camarota admitted, but it won’t cost as much as it would to resettle them in the U.S. and hook them on welfare. The research director said refugees have greater access to the American welfare system when they first arrive than ordinary immigrants do.
“Once you have a green card, there’s no meaningful difference between that green card and someone who comes in on family based immigration, except that the refugee has immediate access to all these welfare programs in a way that green card holders are more limited,” he explained.
Camarota concerns himself mostly with the economic questions surrounding immigration, but he said the U.S. government doesn’t do a good job of weaving new arrivals into the social fabric.
“We don’t have any policy for how we successfully integrate and assimilate people into our country,” he said.
Schlafly, as always, is chiefly concerned with how immigrants will fit into the American social fabric.
“Anybody who comes in should have to renounce allegiance to his former country and accept the American way of life,” she declared. “And if he doesn’t want to do that, goodbye! Adios!”
