Editor's note: This is the exact reason Arizona and other Border States are pushing for this law, and once again our federal government shows it's true colors - Red white and green!!!!

FOX News.com
A top Department of Homeland Security official reportedly said his agency will not necessarily process illegal immigrants referred to them by Arizona authorities.

John Morton, assistant secretary of homeland security for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, made the comment during a meeting on Wednesday with the editorial board of the Chicago Tribune, the newspaper reports.

"I don't think the Arizona law, or laws like it, are the solution," Morton told the newspaper.

The best way to reduce illegal immigration is through a comprehensive federal approach, he said, and not a patchwork of state laws.

While we’re all watching the gulf: Hillary signs UN Small Arms Treaty

Clinton’s New START Misstatements


Infowars.com
May 20, 2010

In her testimony today before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee urging the Senate to consent to the ratification of the April 8th Treaty between the Russian Federation and the United States of America on Measures for the Further Reduction and Limitation of Strategic Offensive Arms (New START), Secretary of State Hillary Clinton stated the following:

Now, some may argue that we don’t need the new START treaty. But the choice before us is between this treaty and no treaty governing our nuclear security relationship with Russia, between this treaty and no agreed verification mechanisms on Russia’s strategic nuclear forces, between this treaty and no legal obligation for Russia to maintain its strategic nuclear forces below an agreed level. And as Secretary Gates has pointed out, every previous president who faced this choice has found that the United States is better off with a treaty than without one, and the United States Senate has always agreed. The 2002 Moscow Treaty was approved by a vote of 95 to nothing. The 1991 START treaty was approved by 93 to 6.

New Weekly Jobless Claims Rise 25,000 to 471,000


FOXNews.com
Associated Press
WASHINGTON -- The number of people filing new claims for unemployment benefits unexpectedly rose last week by the largest amount in three months. The surge is evidence of how volatile the job market remains, even as the economy grows.


Applications for unemployment benefits rose to 471,000 last week, up by 25,000 from the previous week, the Labor Department said Thursday. It was the first increase in five weeks and the biggest jump since a gain of 40,000 in February.

The forecast had been for claims to fall by around 4,000 from the previous week.

"Although no one expects this volatile series to go in one direction every single week, this is clearly a disappointment," said Jennifer Lee, senior economist at BMO Capital Markets.

The total was the highest since new claims stood at 480,000 on April 10. It also pushed the average for the last four weeks to 453,500.

Employers are hiring again, but not at levels needed to make a dent in the unemployment rate, which increased in April to 9.9 percent. An improving economy has lured those who had given up looking for work back into the labor market. The jump in the unemployment rate came even though payrolls rose last month by 290,000 jobs, the biggest gain in four years.

Analysts could trim their forecasts for job growth in May based on the sudden rise in new claims. The increase occurred in the week that the government conducts its survey for the monthly unemployment report.

The number of people receiving jobless benefits fell by 40,000 to 4.63 million for the week ending May 8.

However, that figure does not include unemployed workers who have exhausted their regular 26 weeks of benefits. An additional 5.3 million workers are receiving extended benefits paid for by the federal government for the week ending May 1.

The extended benefits have added as many as 73 weeks of unemployment on top of the 26 weeks customarily provided by the states. But jobs have been scarce for so long that many of those out of work will soon run out of the extended benefits.

For the week ending May 8, 35 states and territories saw increases in applications for new jobless benefits and 18 saw declines.

The largest increase came in California, up 8,351 because of layoffs in service industries and manufacturing. It was followed by Michigan, up by 3,175 because of layoffs in the auto industry.

The states with the largest declines in jobless application were: New York, down by 3,144, because of fewer layoffs in transportation, services and manufacturing; and Kentucky, with a drop of 2,193.



Unitied Nations Convoy sighted in Pennsylvania

ResistNet.com
Posted by John W. McSherry on May 16, 2010 at 8:52pm


At approximately 0715 a convoy of 25-30 camouflaged military, Humvees and armored vehicles with
UN markings was observed traveling westbound between State College, PA, and Milroy, PA on US. Route 322.



At approximately 0900 the same member encountered another convoy of UNMARKED military vehicles, refueling at Toms's Travel Center on U.S. Route 322 at Milroy, PA. The member tried to engage the troops, but was ignored. They were in uniforms without insignia, but the covers did have ranks, from colonel to private. Convoy was a similar size, with Humvees and personnel carriers.



IT is hard to say what the destination is so I am posting onstate sights west and south of Milroy, PA. I am speculating possible routes are 322 W, 99S, 70W, 81 S. 322 is not a major interstate, so it is possible secondary routes are being use. If you see the convoy, please photograph and/ or video tape.

This is not a drill, request verification

Obama adviser: new terror interrogators operating in U.S. and Abroad

SIC SEMPER TYRANNIS!!!
Mark Matheny


A bid to reduce allegations of torture and abuse

Editor's Note:
Wow, do you see how they are merging the CIA, FBI, and Homeland Security together in order to interrogate "suspects"? and to top it off Eric Holder then wants to be able to interrogate BEFORE reading miranda rights! This includes foreign and domestic terrorists.NOW WE ARE ONE STEP CLOSER TO THE ROUNDUPS AND CONCENTRATION CAMPS!!!!!!!

I see Gestapo Nazi Brownshirt tyranny coming to America!

Middle East Online
White House takes control over interrogations dominated by CIA, plagued by controversy.


WASHINGTON - President Barack Obama's top counterterrorism adviser confirmed Tuesday that newly-created US interrogation teams designed to question terror suspects started operating at home and abroad "over the past six, seven months or so."


The elite teams are drawn from intelligence agencies, law enforcement and the Defense Department, and include experts with linguistic skills, knowledge of a particular region or terror network, as well as specialists in "behavioral science," according to senior administration officials.

John Brennan's comments appeared aimed at defusing criticism of the White House over how it has questioned and prosecuted terror suspects.

The Obama administration came under fire after the director of national intelligence, Dennis Blair, told lawmakers in January that the special interrogation teams were not yet operational, despite a decision to form the teams months earlier.


Obama approved establishing the high-value interrogation group, or HIG, in August as part of a larger effort to break with the previous administration and overhaul how terror suspects are questioned and prosecuted.

The interrogation group is led by an official from the Federal Bureau of Investigation, with deputies from the Central Intelligence Agency and the Defense Department, and reports to the National Security Council.

The change asserts more direct White House control over interrogations that had been dominated by the CIA and plagued by controversy and allegations of torture and abuse.

CIA officers in the interrogation teams are not expected to take part directly in questioning of suspects on US soil, officials said.

Although no law bars intelligence officers from participating in the interrogations in the United States, the spy agency as a rule has chosen to play a supporting role to avoid being drawn into a possible court case if a suspect is prosecuted, officials said.





Theodore Roosevelt: His View on Immigration in Light of Arizona Immigration Bill


Theodore Roosevelt giving a speech in 1907


SIC SEMPER TYRANNIS!!!
Mark Matheny

What would Theodore Roosevelt have to say about Arizona's decision to defend its State against illegal immigration?
Here's Theodore Roosevelt's ideas on Immigrants and being an AMERICAN in 1907.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AtqracmxZf4&feature=player_embedded#!


'In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag... We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language.. And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to theAmerican people.' -Theodore Roosevelt 1907



Maybe our current administration should review this speech!!!!!



Terror Attack Response Exercises at Calif Ports

NewsMax.com
Federal and state authorities are conducting a series of anti-terrorism training exercises this week at ports throughout California.


The two days of simulations beginning Tuesday include an attack on a container ship at the Port of Oakland and a bomb to be located in San Francisco Bay by sea mammals trained by the Navy.

Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger started the annual training event in 2004 to improve homeland security and disaster preparedness. This year, more than 3,000 federal, state and local responders are focusing on counterterrorism response at California ports.

Officials say there will be simulated attacks at the ports of Oakland, San Diego, Los Angeles, Long Beach, Redwood City and Sacramento, as well as California State University, San Marcos.

"Cheap Tomatoes"



SIC SEMPER TYRANNIS!!!

Editor's Note: The Teacher who wrote about this immigration problem has really summed it up the best. Dr. Paul Leithart of Columbus forwarded this to me.





CHEAP TOMATOES?


This should make everyone think, be you Democrat, Republican or Independent


From a California school teacher - - -



"As you listen to the news about the student protests over illegal immigration, there are some things that you should be aware of:

I am in charge of the English-as-a-second-language department at a large southern California high school which is designated a Title 1 school, meaning that its students average lower socioeconomic and income levels

Most of the schools you are hearing about, South Gate High, Bell Gardens , Huntington Park , etc., where these students are protesting, are also Title 1 schools.

Title 1 schools are on the free breakfast and free lunch program. When I say free breakfast, I'm not talking a glass of milk and roll -- but a full breakfast and cereal bar with fruits and juices that would make a Marriott proud. The waste of this food is monumental, with trays and trays of it being dumped in the trash uneaten.

I estimate that well over 50% of these students are obese or at least moderately overweight. About 75% or more DO have cell phones. The school also provides day care centers for the unwed teenage pregnant girls (some as young as 13) so they can attend class without the inconvenience of having to arrange for babysitters or having family watch their kids.

I was ordered to spend $700,000 on my department or risk losing funding for the upcoming year even though there was little need for anything; my budget was already substantial. I ended up buying new computers for the computer learning center, half of which, one month later, have been carved with graffiti by the appreciative students who obviously feel humbled and grateful to have a free education in America ..

I have had to intervene several times for young and substitute teachers whose classes consist of many illegal immigrant students, here in the country less then 3 months, who raised so much hell with the female teachers, calling them "Putas"(whores) and throwing things, that the teachers were in tears.

Free medical, free education, free food, free day care etc., etc, etc. Is it any wonder they feel entitled to not only be in this country but to demand rights, privileges and entitlements?

To those who want to point out how much these illegal immigrants contribute to our society because they LIKE their gardener and housekeeper and they like to pay less for tomatoes: spend some time in the real world of illegal immigration and see the TRUE costs.

Higher insurance, medical facilities closing, higher medical costs, more crime, lower standards of education in our schools, overcrowding, new diseases. For me, I'll pay more for tomatoes.

Americans, We need to wake up.



It does, however, have everything to do with culture: It involves an American third-world culture that does not value education, that accepts children getting pregnant and dropping out of school by 15 and that refuses to assimilate, and an American culture that has become so weak and worried about"political correctness" that we don't have the will to do anything about it.

If this makes your blood boil, as it did mine, forward this to everyone you know.

CHEAP LABOR? Isn't that what the whole immigration issue is about?


Business doesn't want to pay a decent wage.


Consumers don't want expensive produce.


Government will tell you Americans don't want the jobs.



But the bottom line is cheap labor. The phrase "cheap labor" is a myth, a farce, and a lie. There is no such thing as "cheap labor."



Take, for example, an illegal alien with a wife and five children. He takes a job for $5.00 or 6.00/hour. At that wage, with six dependents, he pays no income tax, yet at the end of the year, if he files an Income Tax Return, he gets an "earned income credit" of up to $3,200 free.


*He qualifies for Section 8 housing and subsidized rent.


*He qualifies for food stamps.


*He qualifies for free (no deductible, no co-pay) health care.


*His children get free breakfasts and lunches at school.


*He requires bilingual teachers and books.


*He qualifies for relief from high energy bills.


*If they are, or become, aged, blind or disabled, they qualify for SSI. If qualified for SSI they can qualify for Medicaid. All of this is at (our) taxpayer's expense.


*He doesn't worry about car insurance, life insurance, or homeowners insurance.


*Taxpayers provide Spanish language signs, bulletins and printed material.


*He and his family receive the equivalent of $20.00 to $30.00/hour in benefits.



Working Americansare lucky to have $5.00 or $6..00/hour left after paying their bills and his.



Cheap labor? YEAH RIGHT!

THESE ARE THE QUESTIONS WE SHOULD BE ADDRESSING TO THE CONGRESSIONAL MEMBERS OF EITHER PARTY. 'AND WHEN THEY LIE TO US AND DON'T DO AS THEY SAY, WE SHOULD REPLACE THEM .

Please pass this on to as many as possible. Immigration legislation is to be considered in 2010. This is important to working Americans, our economy and our American culture and heritage..

Sestak beats Specter in Pa. Dem Senate race

Party-switching incumbent unable to overcome primary challenge

APNews
WASHINGTON - U.S. Sen. Arlen Specter on Tuesday lost a Democratic primary in his bid for a sixth term after taking the risky step of switching from the GOP.

Where did all the money go?

  A news ticker in Times Square in New York displays news of May 6 massive stock tumble.


Published: Sunday, May 16, 2010


The question sounded naïve, but it was a good one. Where, my acquaintance asked, did all the money go that was lost in the infamous and mysterious market glitch of May 6 -- the Thursday thrash -- when the Dow Jones industrial average plunged almost 1,000 points in 10 minutes and eventually ended up down 400 points on the day?

NATO unveils draft of new mission statement focused on Afghanistan, Russia, other missions

FOX News.com
BRUSSELS (AP) — NATO must win the war in Afghanistan, expand ties with Russia and even China, counter the threat posed by Iran's missiles, and assure the security of its 28 members, according to the alliance's proposed mission statement for the next decade.


The draft document, released Monday, seeks to bridge a growing rift between the U.S., which favors a greater international role for NATO, and European nations that want it to retain its traditional defensive focus.

"NATO must be versatile and efficient enough to operate far from home," said former U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, head of the team of experts who wrote the document. "(But) in order to sustain the political will for operations outside its area, NATO must see that all its members are reassured about the security of their home territories."

The document warned governments not to slash defense spending at a time of economic crisis, because of the growing discrepancy in military capabilities between the United States and Europe's NATO members. Most European nations are not even meeting the minimal requirement of devoting 2 percent of their GDP to defense.

Solving the massive debt problem with more debt. American consumers carry as much debt as annual U.S. GDP. Credit card debt declines but auto loans and student loans go up?

MyBudget360.com
Posted: 15 May 2010 10:03 AM PDT



The Federal Reserve has come to the aid of bailing out Greece. I wonder how many Americans even know that billions of U.S. dollars are going to prop up a failing European country in Greece that got into the mess they are in because of too much debt. In the end, the Euro is still crashing down because Greece is merely one country out of many with massive debt problems. Middle class Americans don’t need an extensive lesson in economics to understand this. If you take on too much debt, at a certain point you will end up paying the piper. This doesn’t matter if you spend too much money on clothing by charging up your credit card or buying a home that you clearly couldn’t afford. In the end, a bill comes due. Unlike Wall Street who operates the Washington D.C. purse strings, you are small enough to fail in their eyes. If you purchase a home that is too expensive, you will either have to pay the mortgage or end up in foreclosure. Giant amounts of debt have ruined individuals as well as countries.

20 Signs That The United States Is Rapidly Becoming A Totalitarian Big Brother Police State

The End Of The World


March 12, 2010

Once upon a time, the United States was a land of unparalleled freedom. The rest of the world envied the freedom that ordinary Americans had to think, say and do what they wanted. But all of that has changed. Now Americans have to fear that they will be tackled by a squad of security goons and dragged off to a detention facility somewhere if they spill a Pepsi on a flight attendant or take a few too many pictures of a public building. The United States used to be the polar opposite of totalitarian regimes like Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union, but now America is rapidly becoming very much like them. Due to the fear of a boogeyman living in a cave somewhere or some guy with explosive powder in his underwear we are all being forced to give up our freedoms and learn to live in a Big Brother police state.

But have things really changed so much that we have to give up all of the cherished freedoms that our fathers and grandfathers fought and died for? Haven’t there always been fanatics and crazies and criminals out there? Why do we suddenly have to become so afraid of them?

In the past, Americans would not let anyone make them live in fear. If some unbalanced individual did something bad, it wasn’t the end of the world, was it? No, in the past Americans dusted themselves off and continued to live as free men and women. You see, when we live in fear and radically alter our way of life just to feel a little more secure, we lose. We have let someone else steal our freedom and our dignity.

But now in the name of “security” all kinds of bizarre proposals have been implemented on the local, state and national levels. Somehow we think that if everything that we do is watched, monitored and analyzed we will all be safer somehow.

Maybe we are safer and maybe we aren’t, but we are certainly a whole lot less free.

The following are 20 signs that the United States is rapidly becoming a totalitarian ”Big Brother” police state….


#1) A new bill being pushed by Senators John McCain and Joe Lieberman would allow the U.S. military to round up large numbers of Americans and detain them indefinitely without a trial if they “pose a threat” or if they have “potential intelligence value” or for any other reason the President of the United States “considers appropriate”.



#2) Lawmakers in Washington D.C. working to create a new immigration bill have decided on a way to prevent employers from hiring illegal immigrants: a national biometric identification card all American workers would be required to obtain.


#3) Barack Obama is backing a plan to create a national database to store the DNA of people who have been arrested but not necessarily convicted of a crime.


#4) Just to get on an airplane, Americans will now have to go through new full-body scanners that reveal every detail of our exposed bodies to airport security officials.


#5) If that wasn’t bad enough, the Transportation Security Administration has announced that airport screeners will begin roving through airports randomly taking chemical swabs from passengers and their bags to check for explosives.


#6) Starting this upcoming December, some passengers on Canadian airlines flying to, from or even over the United States without ever landing there, will only be allowed to board their flights once the U.S. Department of Homeland Security has determined they are not terrorists.


#7) Organic milk is such a threat that the FDA has been conducting military style raids on Amish farmers in Pennsylvania.


#8) An NYPD officer has broken his silence and has confessed that innocent citizens are being set up and falsely arrested and ticketed in order to meet quotas.


#9) A growing number of police departments across the U.S. are turning to mobile camera systems in order to fight motor vehicle theft and identify unregistered cars.



#10) For decades, Arizona has been known as “the sunset state”, but lately many frustrated residents have started calling it “the surveillance state”.


#11) Judges and police in Florida have been caught using “secret codes” on tickets in the state of Florida.


#12) An extensive investigation has revealed that between 2003 and 2007, that state of Texas quietly gave hundreds of newborn baby blood samples to a U.S. Armed Forces laboratory for use in a forensics database.


#13) A 6-year-old girl was recently handcuffed and sent to a mental facility after throwing temper tantrums at her elementary school.


#14) One 12-year-old girl in New York was recently arrested and marched out of her school in handcuffs just because she doodled on her desk.


#15) In Florida, students have been arrested by police for things as simple as bringing a plastic butter knife to school, throwing an eraser, and drawing a picture of a gun.


#16) When a mother on a flight to Denver spanked both of her children and cussed out a flight attendant who tried to intervene, she suddenly found herself handcuffed and headed for prison. Why? She was charged with being a domestic terrorist under the Patriot Act.


#17) A new global treaty may force U.S. Internet service providers to spy on what you do online.


#18) A leaked Obama administration memo has revealed plans for the federal government to seize more than 10 million acres of land from Montana to New Mexico.


#19) 56 percent of Americans questioned in a CNN/Opinion Research Corporation poll said that the U.S. government has become so large and powerful that it poses an immediate threat to the rights and freedoms of ordinary citizens.


#20) But one other recent poll found that 51 percent of Americans agree with this statement: ”It is necessary to give up some civil liberties in order to make the country safe from terrorism.”
