Was the man who who's widely believed to be Washington's new cardinal, Joseph Tobin of the Newark diocese, bunking with a houseboy?
It looks like it, given the reporting of the indefatigable George Neumayr.
I wanted to ask Tobin about a story I broke in October: that an Italian actor, Francesco Castiglione, was living in his rectory, which had caused murmuring among concerned Catholics in his archdiocese of Newark, New Jersey. Some of those concerned Catholics had called me, suspecting that Castiglione was the real recipient of Tobin’s infamous accidental tweet from last February in which he declared to someone unknown, “Nighty-Night Baby, I love you.” An embarrassed Tobin had explained away the Twitter misfire as a late-night message to one of his sisters.
My slippery walk to the Marriott proved productive. I lurked about the Marriott lobby for a few minutes, then looked up and saw Tobin emerge from the elevator and saunter over to the check-out desk. Here was my chance. I waited for him to complete his business, then introduced myself and asked him about Francesco Castiglione.
Was Castiglione living at the rectory until I reported it? Tobin responded that, yes, Castiglione was living at his rectory “temporarily.” I asked him why. He said that Castiglione was taking “language classes” at Seton Hall. Asked why he would provide temporary housing to a random Seton Hall student, Tobin couldn’t offer an explanation.
Via another Neumayr tweet, here's an Instagram screengrab of the sexy Italian actor:
Here's the guy's IMDB page which by its photos is even more suggestive. Update: Or well, it was. The photos seem to have been taken down a few minutes ago. Here is a Google screengrab mostly of what had been there:
Which makes one wonder about the propriety of the whole picture - a big distinguished archbishop and cardinal, living it up with a young sexy Italian actor in the same house. Never mind the gay aspect, isn't Tobin supposed to be celebate? That love-tweet to the man is rather hard to believe was a misfire to his sister, given the living situation.
And this matters because Tobin is widely believed to be the next guy to take the cardinal's job in Washington, which has already been in a world of sexual scandal. It's the place that housed Cardinal Theodore McCarrick, who's been credibly accused of molesting the seminarians and later, children, and who was summarily removed to keep the long arm of the law away. Then it housed Cardinal Donald Wuerl, who was accused of covering up for McCarrick and who was forced to resign for it. Now Tobin in next? Here is what Neumayr tweeted earlier:

Seems there really is a lavender mafia, one covering up for another, and in succession, with business as usual going on as it always has. There seems to be a lot going on that has yet to be reported still - in the comments sections of Neumayr's tweets, parishioners report that Tobin's first acts as cardinal in New Jersey were to put on gay-friendly cathedral events, which might reveal more about what he's about.
<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Cardinal Tobin to TAS: Yes, the Italian actor Francesco Castiglione Lived at My Rectory <a href=""></a> <a href=""></a></p>&mdash; 1Timothy3:15 (@DouayRheims) <a href="">November 15, 2018</a></blockquote>
<script async src="" charset="utf-8"></script>
Any question as to why there seems to be coverup racket plaguing the Catholic Church? Tobin denies he's going to be the next Washington cardinal, but nobody really knows. Now there is this.

U.S. Bishops Say Trump Proclamation on Caravan Migrants Is Illegal

Migrant caravan groups arrive by hundreds at US border
The Associated Press

President Trump’s recent proclamation addressing the mostly Central American migrants marching toward the U.S. border contravenes U.S. laws on immigration, declared a statement posted on the U.S. bishops website Wednesday.

“On November 9, 2018, President Trump issued a proclamation barring people arriving to the U.S./Mexico border from receiving U.S. asylum unless they request it at a U.S. port of entry, a direct contradiction of existing U.S. asylum law (see here),” reads the statement on the Bishops’ website, signed by Bishop Joe Vásquez, Chairman of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops Committee on Migration, along with officials from Catholic Charities USA, Catholic Legal Immigration Network, and Catholic Relief Services.
The bishops express their “deep concern” over the proclamation, arguing that the migrant caravan is composed of children and adults “fleeing violence” in their home countries.
“While our teaching acknowledges the right of each nation to regulate its borders, we find this action deeply concerning,” the statement reads. “It will restrict and slow access to protection for hundreds of children and families fleeing violence in Central America, potentially leaving them in unsafe conditions in Mexico or in indefinite detention situations at the U.S./Mexico border.”
The Mexican ambassador to the U.S., Geronimo Gutierrez, has warned that the migrant caravan is not just a peaceful group of people fleeing a bad situation.
“We have been trying to avoid, at all costs, violence in the border,” Gutierrez told Steve Inskeep of NPR. “Unfortunately, some of the people in the caravan have been very violent against authority, even though that they have offered the possibility of entering in compliance with immigration law and refugee status.”
In their statement, the bishops insist that seeking asylum is no crime and migrants have a right to refuge.
“We reiterate that it is not a crime to seek asylum and this right to seek refuge is codified in our laws and in our values,” it reads. “We urge the Administration to seek other solutions that will strengthen the integrity of the existing immigration system, while assuring access to protection for vulnerable children and families.”
“The Catholic Church will continue to serve, accompany and assist all those who flee persecution, regardless of where they seek such protection and where they are from,” the statement concludes.
In his proclamation, President Trump expressed concern that an influx of “large groups of aliens arriving at once through the southern border would add tremendous strain to an already taxed system, especially if they avoid orderly processing by unlawfully crossing the southern border.”
“Failing to take immediate action to stem the mass migration the United States is currently experiencing and anticipating would only encourage additional mass unlawful migration and further overwhelming of the system,” he said.


yeah, don't talk about pedophile priests!

Pope Francis Warns: People Who Gossip Are ‘Terrorists’

Pope Francis said Wednesday that those who spread gossip are terrorists whose words are grenades that destroy other people’s reputations.

“Gossipers are killers,” the pope told the 20,000 pilgrims gathered in Saint Peter’s Square for his weekly audience. “They kill others because the tongue kills like a knife. Be careful!”
“A gossiper is a terrorist, because with his tongue he throws a bomb and then walks away, but that tossed bomb destroys the good name of others. Do not forget: to gossip is to kill,” he said.
In his remarks, the pope was reflecting on the eighth commandment of the Decalogue: “Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor.”
What does it mean to tell the truth? The pontiff asked. “Does it mean being honest? Or being precise? In reality, this is not enough, because one can be sincerely mistaken, or one can be precise in detail but not grasp the meaning of the whole.”
Being truthful goes beyond just being factual, Francis suggested, and becomes a way of life.
“Sometimes we justify ourselves by saying, ‘But I said what I felt!’ Yes, but you have absolutized your point of view,” he said. “Or, ‘I just told the truth!’ Maybe, but you have revealed some personal or confidential facts. How often gossip destroys communion because it is inappropriate or lacking in sensitivity!”
“Where there are lies there is no love, there can be no love,” he said. “And when we talk about communication between people we mean not only words, but also gestures, attitudes, even silence and omissions. A person speaks with everything he is and does. We are all in communication, always.”
“We all live by communicating and we are constantly poised between truth and falsehood,” he said.
When questioned by Pontius Pilate during his passion, Jesus says: “For this I was born, and for this I came into the world, to testify to the truth,” Francis noted.
“Truth finds its full realization in the very person of Jesus,” he continued, “in his way of living and dying, fruit of his relationship with the Father.”
The pope also encouraged his listeners to examine their consciences, to see whether they live in the truth.
“Let us ask ourselves: as Christians, to what truth do our works, words, and choices attest? Everyone can ask himself: Am I a witness to the truth, or am I more or less a liar disguised as truthful?” he said.
“Truth is not so much pronounced with discourses,” he said, “it is a way of existing, a way of life and is seen in every single act. This man is a true man, that woman is a true woman: you can see it.”
“Not bearing false witness means living as a child of God,” Francis concluded, “who never, ever denies himself and never tells lies.

Cardinal Zen: Vatican 'Does Not Support' Faithful Catholics in China, Rome is Helping Communist Party

Michael W. Chapman
 By Michael W. Chapman | November 14, 2018 | 12:26 PM EST

Pope Francis. 
Cardinal Joseph Zen, the bishop emeritus of Hong Kong and long-time China observer, said "the Holy See does not support" the faithful and long-suffering members of the underground Catholic Church in China and is actually helping the Communist Party to further persecute the faithful in that despotic regime. 
The underground Catholic church has existed in Communist China since 1950. In 1957, the regime created the Catholic Patriotic Association (CPA), a Communist-run "church" designed to draw Catholics into its control and squeeze out those Catholics loyal to the Pope and the Faith. Despite the decades of persecution, the Holy See signed an agreement with the CPA in September, allowing the Communists to nominate bishops for the church there -- the Pope has a veto -- and force unity between the underground church and the CPA.

However, this is not working smoothly because the faithful bishops and laity are still being persecuted by Communist authorities and the clerics in the CPA are required to support practices that are contrary to fundamental church teaching, such as contraception, abortion, sterilization, and divorce. 
Cardinal Zen flew to Rome on Oct. 29 and gave Pope Francis a seven-page letter outlining his concerns about the situation in China, reported the Union of Catholic Asian News (
Government Communist thugs are forcing the underground priests and laity "to become open, to join the Chinese Catholic Patriotic Association, and to obtain a priest's certificate," said Cardinal Zen. They are citing the Sino-Vatican deal as the authority to enforce their measures but the entire document has not been revealed to the public. 
"Some priests have escaped, and some have disappeared because they do not know what to do and are annoyed," said Cardinal Zen. "The agreement is undisclosed, and they do not know if what officials say is true or not."

Zen further said there is new persecution occuring and the Holy See "was helping the Chinese Communist Party suppress the underground community," reported ucanews.
In his letter to the Pope, Cardinal Zen detailed how Communist officials are taking money from the underground priests, harassing their family members, putting some of them in prison and apparently killing some Catholics to put pressure on the community as a whole. 
Yet "the Holy See does not support them [the underground church] and regards them as trouble, referring to them causing trouble and not supporting unity," said Cardinal Zen.  "This is what makes them most painful."
As previously reported, Chinese police kidnapped Bishop Shao Zhumin on Nov. 9 and sent him to a camp for interrogation and indoctrination. Bishop Shao is a leader in the underground church and has repeatedly refused to join the Communist-run CPA. He has been kidnapped by the police at least 5 times over the last two years and held for so-called indoctrination. 
Since the Communist takeover in China in 1949-50, more than 65 million Chinese have been killed as a consequence of political terror and Marxist policies, which produced famines and other problems. Forced abortions and sterilizations still occur regularly in China.

Microsoft, Cisco Hide H-1B Hires Through Indian Outsourcing Firms, Says Report

The Associated Press
Silicon Valley, CA927

A number of the largest tech corporations in Silicon Valley hide their hiring of foreign workers through the H-1B visa by contracting them through India-based outsourcing firms, a report states.

In a revealing report by Bloomberg News, Cisco, Microsoft, Google, Facebook and others are using outsourcing firms to obtain hundreds, and sometimes thousands of H-1B staff, often replacing Americans.
For instance, when outsourcing firms applied for foreign H-1B workers on Cisco’s behalf, the average salary for those jobs being outsourced were about 25 percent lower than the average salary for foreign worker that the company had directly requested.
In other words, Cisco hides its usage of the H-1B visa by contracting foreign workers through an outsourcing firm and pays them less than when they hire foreign workers directly. The revelation is in-step with critics’ frustration with the H-1B visa, which they describe as a cheap labor avenue:
Cisco’s use of the visa program has been the subject of public attention over the years, as its executives have lobbied for its expansion even while conducting multiple rounds of layoffs. The company eliminated 940 jobs at its headquarters in 2016, and 390 more so far this year.
Not every application resulted in a new job at Cisco — fewer than a third of the applications for all industries in 2016 were accepted. Still, taken as a whole, the applications show that Cisco is both more reliant on the H-1B program than previously acknowledged, and that the company uses it in a way that has not been fully understood. The contractors were not applying for visas covering the type of senior-level positions that Cisco sought for itself. Instead, almost all of these visa requests were for jobs requiring little or no specialized knowledge. The average salaries for those positions were about 25 percent lower than the jobs Cisco applied for directly.
Every year, more than 100,000 foreign workers are brought to the U.S. on the H-1B visa. Most recently, that number has ballooned to potentially hundreds of thousands each year, as universities and non-profits are exempt from the cap. With more entering the U.S. through the visa, Americans are often fired and forced to their foreign replacement.
Additionally, other giant American tech companies are using the same model as Cisco. PayPal, for example, partnered with an outsourcing firm between 2015 and 2016 that applied for half of the foreign H-1B staff the tech giant was requesting. The other half were applied for directly by PayPal.
At the Microsoft Corporation’s headquarters, 43 percent of the foreign H-1B workers were applied for through an outsourcing outfit, as well as 29 percent at eBay and 12 percent at Facebook’s respective home bases.
In the past, critics of the H-1B visa told Breitbart Texas that tech corporations, as well as other industries, have for years been using various foreign guest worker visas, like the H-1B, to save on labor costs.

Class Conflict within the Democratic Party

Over many decades, the American Left, the Democratic Party and their mutual propaganda arm, the self-styled “mainstream media,” have successfully portrayed conservatives and the Republican Party as a coalition of the wealthy and intolerant.  Further, the Democrats and the left have claimed that they are the true champions of the working or middle class as they unceasingly fight to defeat and marginalize this evil menace. 
The reality, however, is that this cabal has virtually no interest in defending or aiding the working class as they are, in fact, the party of a bifurcated constituency: the wealthy and those dependent on the largess of the government.
Of the fifty wealthiest congressional districts throughout the country, the Democrats now represent forty-one.  Of the remaining nine represented by Republicans, three are in Texas, the only red state on the list of fifty districts. Not coincidentally the residents of these same fifty districts are supposedly among the most well-educated and sophisticated.  This transformative process is not a recent phenomenon as the trend began in the 1980’s and accelerated rapidly in the early 2000’s.
America’s elites, now overwhelmingly represented by the Democratic Party, have a single overriding interest: their self-indulgent lifestyle.  This is manifested in their mistaken belief that conservatives (i.e. the “right”) are hell bent on enforcing their version of morality on the nation, thus potentially calling into question the lifestyles of the rich and solipsistic. 
The veracity of this claim is immaterial as it would require an element of deliberation not emotion --  a trait in extremely short supply among the nation’s privileged class, nearly all of whom have difficulty in generating an original thought due to the ill-education rampant in America’s universities.  Thus, the mindless accusations of racism, misogyny and Fascism directed at the conservative rubes in middle America are acceptable, and in far too many instances believed, particularly as many had the temerity to vote for Donald Trump – who, although wealthy and Ivy League educated, is considered the ultimate unsophisticated rube.
As conservatives are the dominant force in the Republican Party and this nation cannot function politically with more than two major political parties, the alternative is the Democratic Party.  An entity dominated by the American Left, an assemblage whose core philosophy is antithetical to the interests of the wealthy and privileged.  Yet, determined to protect their lifestyles and vilify conservatives, they willingly ally with the left and overwhelmingly support virtually any Democratic candidate.  In the recent 2018 mid-terms, Democratic House candidates outspent their Republican opponents by a two to one margin thanks primarily to this wealthy but myopic assemblage. 
Their colleagues in the Democratic Party, and the preponderance of the membership, are those dependent on the largess of the federal and state governments.  On the other hand, the growing segment of the citizenry who are working and self-sufficient are increasingly joining those who believe in limited government in migrating to the Republican Party-- a process that is accelerating with the policies and tactics of Donald Trump in combating the entrenched left and their determination to culturally and economically transform the nation.  The Republican Party will inevitably become the party of the working or middle class.  As such, they could potentially dominate the political agenda for the foreseeable future.
The left and the Democratic Party, in order to offset this possibility, must aggressively seek to increase the number of dependents by promoting the legalization and ultimate citizenship for untold millions of illegal immigrants and promising all Americans cradle to grave economic security.  In order to enact this strategy to defeat the Republicans, the left must have the active participation and financial support of the nation’s wealthy-- which they have. 
The Democratic Party has evolved into essentially an incompatible two-tier class-driven entity encompassing the nation’s wealthiest and the nation’s poorest.  Nonetheless, it is at present a convenient home for the elites to hold off the imaginary horde of conservatives outside their gilded doors. 
However, the voting numbers within the party are overwhelmingly with those who generally support the leftist philosophies of redistribution (e.g. socialized medicine and guaranteed incomes) and curtailing of freedom (e.g. speech, assembly and religion).  While it may not manifest itself to the affluent who have cast their lot with the Democrats, the redistribution of wealth must, by necessity, come from the wealthy, as that is where the bulk of the nation’s wealth resides.   It is also this same small-in-numbers group that benefits the most from freedom of speech and assembly. 
Once fully embroiled in this marriage of convenience, a divorce will be impossible as the co-inhabitant of the Democratic Party, the dependent class, must continue grow in order to electorally defeat the Republicans and protect the left’s agenda.  Further, the oversold expectations promulgated by the left will never be satisfied regardless of how many promises are made or token redistributive programs are enacted by the current ruling class.  Only a complete transformation of this nation into a failed socialist state will satiate the left, their acolytes and their attendant army of dependency.  A goal more in reach than ever thanks to the inability of the nation’s elites to give a damn about the future of the country.
There is not a more short-sighted and self-absorbed group of citizens in this nation than the white, wealthy well-educated urban and suburban voters.  They are willing to rend the fabric of this nation in order to protect their privilege and lifestyle.  While the vast majority of Americans will ultimately pay the price, the current ruling class and their progeny will have far more to lose.

MULTI-CULTURALISM and the creation of a one-party globalist country to serve the rich in America’s open borders.

“Open border advocates, such as Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg, claim illegal aliens are a net benefit to California with little evidence to support such an assertion. As the CIS has documented, the vast majority of illegals are poor, uneducated, and with few skills. How does accepting millions of illegal aliens and then granting them access to dozens of welfare programs benefit California’s economy? If illegals were contributing to the economy in any meaningful way, CA, with its 2.6 million illegals, would be booming.” STEVE BALDWIN – AMERICAN SPECTATOR

Clueless Ocasio-Cortez doesn’t understand Dem corporatist strategy, attacks Amazon HQ deal

It is Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s glory and burden that she actually believes all the slogans that progressives mouth. She hasn’t yet realized that the Democratic Party coalition has a senior partner, of the ultra-wealthy corporate elite that provides campaign funding and institutional support, and a junior partner, the poor and minorities, the electoral cannon fodder who provide votes and (lately) mobs, and get freebies from the government in return. The junior partners get noisy public support (aka, “lip service”) from the Dem politicians, but the senior partners get the goodies – the regulations, subsidies, and tax breaks – mostly in private.
Like broken clock that is correct twice a day, Ocasio-Cortez has taken a stand against all the corporate welfare being lavished on Amazon to induce it to locate one-half of its much-hyped HQ2 – about 4 million square feet of office space to house 25,000 newly hired workers – in Long Island City, Queens, just across the East River from Manhattan.  The New York Post:
“We’ve been getting calls and outreach from Queens residents all day about this. The community’s response? Outrage,” Ocasio-Cortez, who officially takes office in January, tweeted.
The 29-year-old went on to say: “Amazon is a billion-dollar company. The idea that it will receive hundreds of millions of dollars in tax breaks at a time when our subway is crumbling and our communities need MORE investment, not less, is extremely concerning to residents here.”
Ocasio-Cortez’s gifts do not include facility with numbers. Calling Amazon a “billion dollar company” understates its market value a thousand-fold, raising the question of her ability to grasp the federal budget on which she will be voting next year. It is unclear if she grasps that the difference between a billion and a trillion is more than one letter.
She correctly suspects that Amazon will not be hiring a lot of low-skilled people for its office jobs, other than as janitors.
Ocasio-Cortez tweeted that when it comes to bringing an influx of jobs to the community, “we need to dig deep.”
“Has the company promised to hire in the existing community?” she questioned. “What’s the quality of jobs + how many are promised? Are these jobs low-wage or high wage? Are there benefits? Can people collectively bargain?”
She also has at least a rudimentary understanding that increased demand for housing by the newly-employed Amazon workers (Amazon claims they will earn an average of $150,000 a year) will push rents higher for her constutuents.
In another tweet, Ocasio-Cortez wrote: “Displacement is not community development. Investing in luxury condos is not the same thing as investing in people and families. Shuffling working class people out of a community does not improve their quality of life.”
Ocasio-Cortez added: “We need to focus on good healthcare, living wages, affordable rent. Corporations that offer none of those things should be met w/ skepticism.”
She continued: “Lastly, this isn’t just about one company or one headquarters. It’s about cost of living, corps paying their fair share, etc. It’s not about picking a fight, either. I was elected to advocate for our community’s interests – & they‘ve requested, clearly, to voice their concerns.”
While I encourage her to continue to speak out and investigate this deal, she will get nowhere. The deal already has been struck between the Democrats’ leadership and the tech oligarchs.  Bezos is signaling that the federal government is integral to his continuing takeover of information technology, retailing, distribution, and data mining. The Washington Post, Bezos’s personal property, is integral to the propaganda campaigns of the Democrats as the local paper of the political and bureaucratic elites.  Flattering or critical articles in the Post are a surprisingly effective inducement for actions desired by the Post’s owner.  Bezos selected Crystal City, just across the Potomac from DC, for the second half of his HQ2 in order to be able to swing a lot of wright on the local economy, and have a lot of employees on the voter rolls.   Bezos also purchased the biggest mansion in DC, signaling his corporatist orientation – overseeing the federal government as his partner.
Bezos demonstrated his prowess at bending government powers to his own benefit with his skillful playing off of local governments with each other in a rush to offer incentives for HQ2. Not only did he receive a variety of tax-relief measures in the huindreds of  millions of dollar each, he quietly reaped a treasure trove of data – for free. Daniel Kishi explains in The American Conservative:
“The big prize Amazon has gotten out of its HQ2 stunt,” tweeted Stacy Mitchell, co-director of the Institute for Local Self Reliance, “is not the PR value of a bunch of city leaders singing its praises, or even the billions of dollars in subsidies that it will extort from public coffers. It’s the data.”
Indeed, under the guise of a multi-billion dollar development contest, Amazon successfully convinced the mayors and governors of 238 North American cities and regions to voluntarily surrender a treasure trove of information ranging from future infrastructure projects to land use patterns and everything else in between—all without being charged a dime.
Armed with this detailed data, Amazon will not only have a competitive advantage over its rivals in retail and cloud computing, it will also have a serious upper hand at the negotiating table with state and local governments, as it will know precisely how much taxpayer money it will be able to extract from public funds. 
As with her demonstration outside Nancy Pelosi’s office, complete with bullhorns, Ocasio-Cortez is a wild card in the eyes of the inner circle of the ruling class. Watch for her committee assignments next year when the Dems take over the House. They may try to co-opt her with committees that she wants to be on. But, if the decision is made that she needs to be leaned on, she can expect posts on committees that have nothing to do with the needs of her urban constituents.

"Hillary and her party supporters desperately need illegal immigrants: Hillary is bought and paid for."

Why Hillary and Her Wall Street Donors 

Don’t Want Trump’s Wall

By Michael Bargo, Jr.
When GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump first talked about building a “big, beautiful wall” at the southern border of the U.S. he was met with fierce resistance. Given the facts that the southern border is the main route used by drug smugglers and criminal illegal immigrants (all persons who cross the border illegal commit a Federal misdemeanor the first time, a felony the second time) there would not seem to be a good reason to resist lawful regulation of border entry. As usual, the answer may be in who gains from the absence of a Wall, and what they gain. The best way to get the answer is to follow the money.
Right now the transfer of money from persons working in the U.S. to Mexico, called “personal remittances” are a major source of Mexican revenue. The growth of remittance revenue is a recent development. Mexico seized the assets of nearly all foreign oil companies operating in Mexico in 1938. But as American sanctuary cities flouted Federal law and encouraged illegal immigration after 1980, those working in the U.S. started to wire transfer money back to their families in amounts that became so large that by the late 1990s remittances to Mexico were the second largest source of foreign revenues, second only to oil revenues.

According to the World Bank, in 2015 the world’s top remittance corridor was from the United States to Mexico. As much as $25.2 billion dollars was sent back to Mexico from people working in the U.S. Remittances are a great source of revenue for Mexico and are more stable than all other flows such as oil.
In 1979 the Police Chief of Los Angeles publicly stated that he would not enforce immigration law. Following this announcement, which was the effective beginning of Los Angeles as a sanctuary city, remittances to Mexico from the U.S. grew very rapidly from only $177 million in 1979 to $26.9 billion in 2007, following the growth of those sectors of the economy such as construction where illegal immigrants worked. After the 2007 economic peak there was a drop in 2009 to $22 billion. But in 2015 the amount of remittances climbed back to $26.2 billion, according to the World Bank. Ninety-eight percent of all remittances sent to Mexico come from the U.S.
It is no coincidence that the most rapid growth occurred from 2000 to 2008 when Vincente Fox was the president of Mexico. This is why the most emotional and energetic resistance to the Wall came from Vincente Fox, who used abusive language toward Trump. His statement were cloaked in emotion and anger, a skillfully crafted disguise for the real reason for his concern: money.
One in every eleven persons born in Mexico has gone to the U.S. The National Review reported that in 2014 $1.87 billion was spent on incarcerating illegal immigrant criminals.
Since the political economy of Los Angeles depends so heavily on the Federal and state program money that supports illegal immigration, the Los Angeles Times still defends Special Order 40 as essential to, paradoxically, law and order. It’s also essential to the economy of Los Angeles but somehow the Times doesn’t mention that fact.

One may ask why the Federal government chooses to spend so much money on the incarceration of criminal aliens by defying the Federal 1996 Immigration Act. But it’s important to keep in mind the benefits the Federal government, particularly the Democrat Party, the party of government sector teacher unions, obtains from illegal immigration. After all, their four biggest campaign contributors, the Service Employees International Union, the National Education Association, American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees and American Federation of Teachers are four of the top six contributors from 1989 to present. And they give over 99% of their contributors to Democrats. Today sixty five percent of public school students in Los Angeles County are Hispanic. In Chicago 46% are Hispanic.
Democrats, who have dominated almost all large metropolitan areas since FDR, are heavily dependent on illegal immigrants and their children. Should Trump 

build an effective wall, he would disrupt the flow 

of illegal immigrants, public school students, 

teacher union donations and block grant money to 

all their most important bases of electoral and 

demographic support. Trump’s wall is the major 

threat to what they see as their party’s long term 

goal of maintaining control of state governments 

as well as the national government.

Multimillionaire Jorge Ramos of Univision has criticized Trump aggressively. While Univision may have no obvious direct financial interest in remittances, their TV network certainly stands to profit from increases in Hispanic viewership, increases that are totally dependent on the growth of the Hispanic populations in cities they serve.




In short, everything that matters to Hillary and her Democrat Party is existentially threatened by Trump’s wall. And as a personal matter, Hillary’s multi-million dollar speech income from Wall Street contributors is also threatened: the banks make money from the wire transfers. Every time someone in the U.S. wires money to Mexico, the banks, currency exchanges, and other providers of wire transfer services make easy money. And the loss of low paying jobs to teenagers and seniors to illegal immigrants also contributes to the recession. Hillary and her party 

supporters desperately need illegal immigrants: 

Hillary is bought and paid for.

We now know that the big Wall Street banks bought her and you are paying for it in many ways. Hillary will not reveal what she has said to big bank contributors, but it is not unlikely that she reassured them that she will allow an open border to exist on the Southern part of the U.S. Recent email leaks have confirmed that she believes in open borders.

And then there’s the humanitarian issue. After all, the rationalization for allowing illegal immigration is that we need people to do “low paid jobs no one else will do.” This is a racist, humiliating characterization of Hispanics from Mexico and other Central American countries. America’s most shameful chapter in its history was its promotion of the institution of slavery, the importation of blacks from Africa to do “low paid jobs no one else will generation of low paid workers. Vincente Fox never discusses this abuse, or the rape trees human smugglers construct as monuments to their criminal rape of young Hispanic women illegally crossing the border from the South.

Those following the money trail would say this follows the pattern perfectly: that Hillary allows illegal immigrants to be exploited by cartels and rapists in order for the banks she protects to collect their remittance transfer money. Somehow these humanitarian topics are avoided. We know that Wall Street investment banks gave tens of millions to support Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. These same 

banks make easy profits from of illegal immigrant 

bank transfer fees as well as high interest rate 

home loans and car loans targeted to Hispanics.

Hillary’s lack of humanitarian concern is accompanied by a silence toward the issue of money.
