Stats about illegals and crime in AZ: a war zone


Check out article at CNSNew.com:

Justice Department: Border Patrol Agents Assaulted Daily, Kidnappings Every 35 Hours in Phoenix, 1 in 5 Teens Using Drugs Predominantly Supplied by Mexican Traffickers - Wednesday, April 28, 2010 - By Terence P. Jeffrey, Editor-in-Chief

"Three Border Patrol agents are assaulted on the average day at or near the U.S. border. Someone is kidnapped every 35 hours in Phoenix, Ariz., often by agents of alien smuggling organizations. And one-in-five American teenagers last year used some type of illegal drug, many of which were imported across the unsecured U.S.-Mexico border.

These facts are reported in the recently released National Drug Threat Assessment for 2010, published by the National Drug Intelligence Center, a division of the U.S. Justice Department. They ought to add some perspective to the national debate raging over Arizona’s new law that requires local law enforcement officers to make a “reasonable attempt” to determine the immigration status of persons they legally come into contact with and whom they reasonably suspect of being in the country illegally."

With approx 400,000 illegals in Arizona? Crikey, that is a war zone...

Arizona round up

Just a herd of cats to round up - goings on, comments and what the new Arizona state law ACTUALLY says about illegal aliens... Dems are waaaaaaay off base on this one (of course)...
Pix from Woody's Place (hat tip Andy at Andy's Redneck Remblings)

Michelle Malkin's comments on why Mexican's leave their home: Could be because Mexico is a police state? (hey... she is on to something!)

I've mentioned what happens with illegals in America vs couple other coutries this week: they get free, awesome and great stuff ! America needs to remove the INCENTIVES for them to come into America. (Why don't people get this?)

From Kevin J. (who completely gets it) at TheBlacksphere.net:

"Mexicans are flooding into America, because their country can’t provide opportunity. Why remain in Mexico working for a living, when you can come to the U.S. and get free housing, a food credit card, a cell phone, a car, and have access to the best medical system in the world…at least for now.

Would anybody in their right mind want to immigrate to Mexico for their definition of “opportunity?” They have no jobs, abject poverty, drug lords, a government more corrupt than our own Congressional Black Caucus! No wonder Mexicans are saying “Hasta la vista, Baby!” And so is about every other immigrant population.

Mexicans could head south into South and Central America. But they don’t. They come to America. South and Central Americans march right through Mexico to immigrate, usually illegally into the U.S. You’d think that a few of them would stop along the way and say, “You know, I think I will stay in Mexico City or Acapulco…it’s not so bad here!” But they do not! They continue marching towards the “tyranny of the U.S.”

It is this illegal influx that has caused American citizens to say enough is enough. This issue is about enforcing America’s laws, and not allowing the false issue of “foreigners doing jobs Americans don’t want” rule the day."

And about the new Arizona law: the Washington Examiner says its a carefully crafted bill and "The bottom line is, it's a good law, sensibly written and rigorously focused -- no matter what the critics say."

What does Arizona's new law ACTUALLY say anyway? Go read the whole thing here.

Here's a bit of the actual law from Classic Liberalism (which has a good clip of Sheriff Joe A slapping Sharpton around (verbally of course):

B. FOR ANY LAWFUL CONTACT MADE BY A LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICIAL OR A LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCY OF THIS STATE OR A LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICIAL OR A
LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCY OF A COUNTY, CITY, TOWN OR OTHER POLITICAL SUBDIVISION OF THIS STATE WHERE REASONABLE SUSPICION EXISTS THAT THE
PERSON IS AN ALIEN WHO IS UNLAWFULLY PRESENT IN THE UNITED STATES, A REASONABLE ATTEMPT SHALL BE MADE, WHEN PRACTICABLE, TO DETERMINE THE
IMMIGRATION STATUS OF THE PERSON, EXCEPT IF THE DETERMINATION MAY HINDER OR OBSTRUCT AN INVESTIGATION. ANY PERSON WHO IS ARRESTED SHALL
HAVE THE PERSON’S IMMIGRATION STATUS DETERMINED BEFORE THE PERSON IS RELEASED. THE PERSON’S IMMIGRATION STATUS SHALL BE VERIFIED WITH THE
FEDERAL GOVERNMENT PURSUANT TO 8 UNITED STATES CODE SECTION 1373(c). A LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICIAL OR AGENCY OF THIS STATE OR A COUNTY,
CITY, TOWN OR OTHER POLITICAL SUBDIVISION OF THIS STATE MAY NOT SOLELY CONSIDER RACE, COLOR OR NATIONAL ORIGIN IN IMPLEMENTING THE
REQUIREMENTS OF THIS SUBSECTION EXCEPT TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY THE UNITED STATES OR ARIZONA CONSTITUTION. A PERSON IS PRESUMED TO NOT
BE AN ALIEN WHO IS UNLAWFULLY PRESENT IN THE UNITED STATES IF THE PERSON PROVIDES TO THE LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICER OR AGENCY ANY OF THE
FOLLOWING:1. A VALID ARIZONA DRIVER LICENSE.2. A VALID ARIZONA NONOPERATING IDENTIFICATION LICENSE.3. A VALID TRIBAL ENROLLMENT CARD OR OTHER FORM OF TRIBAL IDENTIFICATION.4. IF THE ENTITY REQUIRES PROOF OF LEGAL PRESENCE IN THE UNITED STATES BEFORE ISSUANCE, ANY VALID UNITED STATES FEDERAL, STATE OR LOCAL GOVERNMENT ISSUED IDENTIFICATION.

Maggie's Notebook has AZ Governor Jan Brewer explaining the horror Arizona currently has by living with 400,000 ILLEGAL aliens in their state: "Every U.S. president is charged with the same prime responsibility: keep America safe. Instead, every president after Reagan has allowed open borders to increase to boost their voting base. Every one of those presidents should have been impeached. "

Feds are just trying to herd cats... and pretend they care...

Lame Cherry suggests the Obumbles regime desparately wants to keep their Mexican slaves and asks "Do you think that Mexicans are going to be able to retire in America on Social Security? No way Jose, as this cartel fully intends to work these Mexican slaves to death and in a few years they will raise retirement ages to 75 years. That is how NeoProgs balance the massive debts.They steal from Mexican illegals, give them amnesty so they have to pay off the Obama debt and not flee back to Mexico, and then kill them off in Obama rationed death."

A wise commenter from Reason.com on this topic states "Nothing says liberty like inconsistent enforcement of laws".

Following the law... that's a concept, eh?

Jury trial by Dr. Manning: We have proof of Obama’s ineligibility


From the Post & Email: JURY TRIAL MAY 14-19 TO BE “AN INTERNATIONAL EVENT” by Sharon Rondeau

(ummmm..... this could be quite interesting!)

"Dr. James David Manning, who will be conducting a jury trial to hear charges against Obama next month

(Apr. 27, 2010) — Today The Post & Email welcomed back Dr. James David Manning, Ph.D., to speak about the upcoming Columbia University Treason and Sedition Trial which he is conducting in Harlem, NY, from May 14-19, 2010. Dr. Manning reports that he has documented evidence that Barack Hussein Obama II is not a “natural born Citizen” as required by the U.S. Constitution to be President of the United States, and that Obama also did not attend Columbia University from 1981-83 as Obama has claimed. "

Hey Steele, listen to Marcus and quit pandering to blacks


Lloyd Marcus, American, has some advise for goofy GOP chairman Mr. Steele's comments about GOP pandering to blacks - quit it!

"Brother Steele, how about the GOP showing a little respect for the American people by standing up for conservative values and principles? If you do this, they will come. Right-minded Americans of all stripes will join our cause.

The once-great NAACP has deteriorated into a negative for black America. The organization sold its soul for a seat of power at the liberal Democratic Party table, betraying blacks by keeping them thinking like victims so they will continue voting monolithically Democrat.

Admittedly, there are issues which are devastating the black community: high numbers of out-of-wedlock births, epidemic school dropout rates, and 50% of black babies aborted (blackgenocide.org). But these problems should not be dealt with from the standard Democrat "white folks don't care" or "it's whitey's fault" or "let's throw more money at it" point of view. The mess in the black community is proof of the utter failure of Democrat-enforced liberalism and not holding people accountable.

Blacks must be challenged to take responsibility for their lives. For crying out loud, this is America! A high school education is free. There is no reason other than a moral and parental breakdown for blacks not to graduate high school."

TIME TO CLOSE THE U.S.A. BORDERS AND STOP THE FLOW OF ILLEGALS... other recent coverage:
UNDERSTAND YET, MR. SHARPTON? (yeeah riiiight)

Oh, perhaps just any ol' foreigner can run the show


Why is BHOBumbles lack of being eligible for POTUS important? Another good opinion piece, while very sobering, describes WHY this is important for those who still might think it isn't.

From "Obama's eligibility: here's your sign!" by Timothy Baldwin:

"In a recent article written by JB Williams entitled, "DC Knows that Obama is Ineligible for Office," Williams highlights some facts signaling that the federal government, the main-stream media and those closely related to both know that Barak Obama is ineligible to be the President of the United States of America under the U.S. Constitution.

Williams is not alone, of course, in the conclusion that Obama is an illegitimate President and that his illegitimacy is being covered up by Congress, the federal courts, those in the Republican and Democratic national parties and others. Ever since Obama campaigned for U.S. President, millions in America have raised his eligibility as a fundamental concern for the integrity of the U.S. Constitution and rule of law, all to no avail.

Consider what is really implied about Obama's ineligibility and the cover up by those in the federal government, the main-stream media and the two major political parties. The cut-to-the-chase conclusion underlying this whole ordeal is that the United States government is completely and utterly illegitimate and reeks of bad faith and intent. Any other conclusion is very difficult to believe, using logic and reason."

TIME TO TAKE BACK AMERICA & INSTALL A LEGITIMATE GOVERNMENT.

Americans need to be FULLY INVOLVED to GET GOOD CANDIDATES INTO OFFICE THIS NOVEMBER 2010.

This is an important step in saving America.

When in darkness or doubt, pray for strength any way you can

*
America, if you believe at all in angels...
If you ever feel the need to pray...
Now might be time to call on...
Archangel St. Michael:
"The Angel of Protection, Strength and Truth
Ruler of the Sun
He gives you courage to face the truth and overcome any obstacles and fears you have about your future.
He want nothing more than for us to become our true selves.
Represents body and spirit
brings rescue in form of his sword
often known as Michael ' The Prince of Light' "

*
if you don't like to pray...
you might like some inspiration...
listen to lyrics from Muse:
*
Rise up and take the power back
Its time the fat cats had a heart attack
You know their time's coming to an end
We have to unify
And let our flag ascend!
*
They will not force us
They will stop degrading us
They will not control us
We will be victorious

AUS & NZ remember fallen war heros on ANZAC day

Today 25-Apr, New Zealand and Australia honors their fallen soldiers on ANZAC day.

We remember & thank all ANZACs especially those lost at Gallipoli, Turkey in 1915.




The 1981 movie Mel Gibon starred in is still used as a learning guide. The film "shows the ill-fated attack on the Turk lines at Gallipoli by soldiers of ANZAC (Australian and New Zealand Army Corps) during the First World War.

In war the lives of soldiers are often lost due to mistaken tactics, stupidity, and bad luck. Gallipoli shows a cardinal example of this phenomenon. Other themes are the pressure of the rush to enlist, friendship among soldiers, and their courage in the face of sure and imminent death. The movie will introduce children to the roles that Australia and Turkey played in the First World War, trench warfare, and the failed Gallipoli campaign."

* * * *
Peter Jackson has created this restored footage from the battle at Gallipoli:





More information about the Gallipoli campaign here from the Returned Servicemen' Association (RSA).

From NZ history online: "Thousands lost their lives in the Gallipoli campaign: 87,000 Turks, 44,000 men from France and the British Empire, including 8500 Australians. To this day, Australia also marks the events of 25 April. Among the dead were 2721 New Zealanders, almost one in four of those who served on Gallipoli.

It may have led to a military defeat, but for many New Zealanders then and since, the Gallipoli landings meant the beginning of something else – a feeling that New Zealand had a role as a distinct nation, even as it fought on the other side of the world in the name of the British Empire."

Stupid "earth day" is naked communism


I denounce and reject "earth day".

My husband & I are tidy, don't over-use water or electricity. We both work, 5 days of every 7. We both believe in freedom. We pay (probably too much in) tax. We help our neighbors. We love our pets. We are kind, loving, generous, friendly people.

Our mere presence is not harmful to the environment. Man, in general, is not very harmful to the environment. The earth is a tough, mother f*er.

Let me repeat. The earth is a tough, mother f*er.

Earth is a big, beautiful, kick a&& planet with lots of HUGE hidden forces. Gravity, volcanic activity, tides influenced by the moon's orbit, warming and cooling naturally because of sun spots and gamma waves and such. We live here and take good enough care of earth. No need to 'worship' her: respect, basic care and kindness is enough.

Good article at CFP today "The Naked Communism of Earth Day" mentions: "Environmentalism has been built on the foundation laid by communism because both exist to control everyone’s life. They are opposite sides of the same coin, both are opposed to the ownership of private property and both regard man as state property to be drained of his earnings through taxation.

Environmentalism’s preferred method is coercion and the mechanism for this is government. "

CFP goes on to say the culmination of this crap is the "Greatest hoax of the modern era, “global warming.”

In the name of the environment, the U.S. government is set to impose a Cap-and-Trade law on Americans that has no basis whatever in science and is, in fact, based on the greatest hoax of the modern era, “global warming.”

Cap-and-Trade will tax energy use and directly control how much energy individual Americans can use to heat or cool their homes through “smart grid” technology controlled by the utilities, not the consumer.

Environmentalism is the reason the U.S. has not had a single new refinery or nuclear plant built since the 1970s. Think about that every time you drive your car or turn on the lights.

The spread of endless environmental propaganda has been taken up by the nation’s mainstream media and has infiltrated the nation’s schools through its textbooks and other means of instruction. Earth Day will be the occasion for an orgy of media coverage.

Just as communism failed the former Soviet Union and just as Red China abandoned communism as the model for its economy, environmentalism continues its relentless quest to deter economic growth and security in America. It is the infrastructure of a New World Order."


Geez, even Disney is indoctrinating your kids with this shite: see a warning by Phelim McAleer at BigHollywood. He warns "Banning fossil fuels or pushing recycling or opposing dams or mining projects are deeply, deeply political actions. They damage communities, they chase jobs out of the country and they tell people where and when they can work and even if they can keep their jobs. When the likes of James Cameron flies to an impoverished region to stop a dam, he may feel good about himself but this means many people will suffer without clean water or cheap electricity. Environmentalism is politics at its most basic."

I love running water, TV, electricity, modern conveniences, driving in my car, living in a nice home and using a computer. Drill here, drill now, baby. Mine away - responsibly of course. Use the earth's resources wisely, but YES, use them!

I will keep my lights a few extra hours and recycle a few less things today as I wholly reject the nonsense which is 'earth day' and instead choose to marvel at man's technological achievements. I celebrate science, music, computers, modern appliances, airplanes, satellites, space travel, laser guided missiles, DNA and forensic testing, quantam physics, nuclear fision, comedy, automobiles, art, medicine and all man's many achievements in the few thousand years here on earth. Now THAT is something to celebrate! THAT is the miracle! Mankind rocks!

By the way, if you reallllllly think u are a true 'greenie'? Do the research: we should ALL have nuclear energy plants and drive nuclear cars.
Go smoke that in your peace pipe.

"Kiss the Ring" from Lt. Col. Allen West


Reposting a cool and very inspiring article from Lt. Col. Allen West (retired) running for congress in Florida this year. From his Go West Blog and also posted at Atlas Shrugs.

Someone with proven leadership skills who loves America AND can speak from the heart withOUT a teleprompter? Yeah baby... THIS is the type of leadership America needs.

===

“Washingtoons” 19 April 2010 Lieutenant Colonel Allen B West (US Army, Retired)

“Kiss the Ring”

Greetings Wheels on the Road (WOTR) readers, fellow South Floridians, and all Americans, time for another monthly political assessment. There are so many thoughts running through my brain but they all come back to the events of Thursday, 15 April 2010….Tax Day.

On that day I had the distinct honor and pleasure to address two TEA Party groups; Ft Lauderdale and West Palm Beach. It was a fantastic gathering of everyday Americans with their families.

However, we get the topic of this month’s installment from our dear President. It was President Obama who after the tax day rallies admonished the participants that they should just say, “Thank You”. That is correct; his highness believes that you loyal subjects should be thankful for all the new taxes and growth of government imposed in his first year.

So what exactly is the T.E.A. Party movement, first of all it stands for Taxed Enough Already, and associates itself with the original Boston Tea Party. The first tea party lamented the issue of “taxation without representation”. The current tea party addresses “taxation with misrepresentation”, as evidenced by the Obamacare legislative process involving more broken arms than at a rugby match.

The tea party today is made of all walks of life and it is just amazing how so many are seeking to define it and harness it into something which they can understand. It is a movement of American conscience, not a political party. It is a movement that is based upon principle of governance and philosophy, not partisan politics. When you are at a tea party event you feel a sense of that which started America on this road some 233 years ago; human will and yearning for Liberty.

Regardless of the insidious claims, this movement stretches across race, gender, age, and ethnicity. If you recognize that which makes America unique, and yes President Obama, exceptional, you understand the tea party movement.

But why is it that the tea party has drawn so much attention, negative mostly, from media sources and political operatives? One word, it is fear.

Today is the 15th anniversary of a tragic and terrible day in America, the Oklahoma City bombing. What should be a day of remembrance and mourning was used by another Democrat President, Bill Clinton, to launch a despicable attack against the tea party movement. Clinton made the comparison of what resulted in the deaths of 168 Americans to Americans seeking to “redress their grievances to government”, highly disgusting and dishonorable.

In accordance with such we have Time magazine writer Joe Klein accusing Sarah Palin and others of sedition, a felony crime.

What we are witnessing is the imagined fear of the liberal progressives in America. They are attempting to create a sense of intimidation and violence where no such thing exists. The constant stoking and probing for the smoking gun that will solidify their claim comes up empty time and time again.

The real fear of the liberal progressives is that the silent majority is no longer silent and is rejecting their collectivist, big government agenda centered on nationalizing production and expansion of the entitlement class. Americans are rejecting the notion of the nanny-state where we find 47% of Americans are not paying taxes. We are rejecting the liberal progressive objective of having a majority of Americans wedded to government either by subsistence checks or by employment.

The real fear is that since 2006 the Democrat party has laid ruin to our fundamental principles upon which America was built, namely our Constitution. They realize that there is a true danger for them in the mid-term elections of 2010, that means you too Ron Klein! And that is not intimidation, just means we will defeat you in the Congressional race for Florida district 22.

If one really wants a lesson in political intimidation you need only look to the history of the Democrat party. It is the party which created the Ku Klux Klan as its terrorist arm. It is the party of segregation, Jim Crow laws, poll taxes, and lynching, among other forms of violence. It is the party that reversed much of the Reconstruction era civil rights legislation and would have blocked the Civil Rights Act of the early 1960’s, save not for Republican Senator Everett Dirksen.

Today the Democrat party maintains its intimidation mantra through the thugs of ACORN, SEIU, New Black Panther Party, Code Pink, and anarchist groups. See if any political party recognizes violence and intimidation in America, it is the Democrat party.

Now with the media in tow, they have expanded their means by which to attack simple Americans yearning for their freedom and liberty. Let us never forget the heinous treatment of former President George W Bush and the last American President to be shot……a Republican, Ronald Reagan.

It is beyond contempt and belief that the party who promoted slavery and segregation is now attempting to call anyone racist. I find it absolutely humorous when the left attacks me as a; radical, racist, uncle tom, oreo, sellout, and token. The actions of the left media who interviewed a black Gentleman at a tea party trying to coach him into condemning the tea party as racist is reprehensible, but indicative of the MSM.

The real racists in America are liberal progressives. Their dishonest tyranny which promotes failing social welfare policies centers on enslavement, not empowerment. They have created a new 21st century plantation and utilize such people as Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, and the Congressional black caucus as their plantation overseer’s.

The duplicitous hypocrisy of a Senator Harry Reid making statements about “light-skinned” and “non-negro dialect” as being acceptable to him is the essence of racism. How funny, that the mindless lemming lap dogs who refer to themselves as black leaders gave him a pass. Therefore, I am proud to stand with my American Brothers and Sisters, and their children, at TEA Party events and rallies. I would rather stand with them than live in shame and submission to the party of slavery, secession, segregation, and now socialism.

It is amazing to me that President Obama and his cronies find it hard to address our real enemies; Islamic terrorists, muslim extremists, and jihadists. Instead he seeks to ridicule and demonize Americans exercising their Constitutional rights, truly Alinsky style. The TEA Party movement is about the rejection of his policies, not his skin color. The TEA Party movement is about rejecting ruling class elitism and career politicians that feel Americans should say thank you and in submission, “Kiss the Ring”.

Americans have no issue with being justly governed, but we will reject being ruled, ask the last fella who tried, King George III.

We are having a TEA Party across the land, time for true Americans to make a stand.

Steadfast and Loyal!

LTC A B West (USA, Ret)

Hey Clinton, thanks for reminder about your shite foreign policies!

Jayna Davis researched the Oklahoma bombing by Tim McVeigh and Terry Nichols and found many witnesses who saw foreigners helping them. There is even a connection to Osama Bin Laden! Read all about it in Ms. Davis book.

Remember muslim jihadists bombed the WTC BEFORE the 9/11/01 attack?

Isn't it peachy of Bill Clinton to try to call TEA party patriots terrorist but instead he reminds us ALL about how CRAPPY his foreign appeasement policies were and how many jihad attacks against America happened under CLINTON'S 'democratic' regime? Or have we forgotten all that? Should Clinton and Reno be prosecuted for what they did at Waco? McVeigh was upset about it.

From 2007 article "Oklahoma City Bombing: An al-Qaeda Connection?" at About.com:
"Foreign terrorists, including al-Qaeda operative Ramzi Yousef, may have played a role in the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing, according to an oversight investigation by the House International Relations Committee."

Gina Loudon discusses at Big Journalism "about that Tim McVeigh special" and trying to cast TEA partiers as 'terrorists':
"Tea Partiers are not “anti-government.” Actually, the Tea Partiers I know are very proud of our founding documents and the original intent of our government. While the terrorists hate our government for the freedoms it espouses, the Tea Partiers hate that it often tramples upon those very freedoms. Many Tea Partiers carry pocket-sized copies of the Constitution with them at all times — try asking a group of Tea Partiers and see how many are offered. Recommended reading!"

Even Rush weighs in because Clinton tries to blame 'talk radio' for Waco & the OK bombing inspiration?

"Have we had any anniversary ceremonies for the invasion of Waco by Janet Reno and US military tanks 17 years ago? Seventy-six people who died in the Waco fire, including more than 20 children, two pregnant women at the hands of the US military ordered there by Janet Reno.

Let me ask you a question. This is all over the media. This was so predictable. Starting last Wednesday or Thursday into the weekend the media template was established, the narrative was there, Bill Clinton and Obama blaming the tea parties for a future Oklahoma City type bombing, which hasn't happened. Let me ask you a question. What was a more likely cause of the Oklahoma City bombing: talk radio or Bill Clinton and Janet Reno's hands-on management of Waco, the Branch Davidian compound, and maybe to a lesser extent Ruby Ridge."

- and -
"Bill Clinton had to surrender his law license for five years for lying to a federal judge under oath in the Lewinsky case, $90,000 fine, but that's not the big deal. In 1999 Bill Clinton pardoned 16 members of two violent Puerto Rican nationalist organizations, the FALN. "While the pardon scandals that marked Bill and Hillary Clinton's final days in office are remembered as transactions involving cronies, criminals and campaign contributors, the FALN clemencies of 1999 should be remembered in the context of the increasing threat of domestic and transnational terrorism that was ramping up during the Clinton years of alleged peace and prosperity. To wit, the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, the 1995 Tokyo subway sarin attack, the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing, the 1995 'Bojinka' conspiracy to hijack airplanes and crash them into buildings, the 1996 Khobar Towers bombing, the 1996 Summer Olympics bombing, Osama bin Laden's 1996 and 1998 'Declarations of War' on America, the 1998 East African embassy bombings, the 2000 USS Sullivans bombing attempt, the 2000 USS Cole bombing, and the 2000 Millennium bombing plot. "

Today on Hannity, from GatewayPundit "Dick Morris bombshell Reno told Clinton she stays on or she blows whistle on Waco video"



Perhaps a proper investigation into Clinton, Reno and his regime is needed now for possible war crimes against American private citizens at Waco or elsewhere.

The rightful blame for 9/11/01 belongs to Clinton's policies and decades of Jihadist's growing hatred for America.

And now, under BHO: the czars and jihadists are IN THE GOVERNMENT.

Just.F-ing.Great.

***UPDATE: P.Geller has a much better round up of all the facts at Atlas Shrugs. Go check it out!

Truth about BHO-Dem regime's tax LIES

Great post at Full Metal Patriot today discussing BHO & the DemoCommie regime's TAX LIES:

"Why would we thank him for raising our taxes?

(Note: Asterisks in the Scripd Doc - and noted below - indicate the tax increases on families earning less than $250,000 a year)

Once again, with Democrats in charge, we're seeing a host of tax hikes. Not only that, but the Obama administration is floating the idea of a new 5% "value-added" tax, too.

I think everyone owes Rep. Joe Wilson a big apology; not only was he right about President Obama's healthcare "reforms" covering illegal immigrants, he was right that Obama is a liar."

The Republican Party was formed in 1854 specifically to oppose the Democrats, and for more than 150 years, they have done everything they could to block the Democrat agenda. In their abuses of power, they have even used threats and military violence to thwart the Democrat Party’s attempts to make this a progressive country. As you read the following Republican atrocities that span three centuries, imagine if you will, what a far different nation the United States would be had not the Republicans been around to block the Democrats’ efforts.

March 20, 1854 Opponents of Democrats’ pro-slavery policies meet in Ripon, Wisconsin to establish the Republican Party

May 30, 1854 Democrat President Franklin Pierce signs Democrats’ Kansas-Nebraska Act, expanding slavery into U.S. territories; opponents unite to form the Republican Party

June 16, 1854 Newspaper editor Horace Greeley calls on opponents of slavery to unite in the Republican Party

July 6, 1854 First state Republican Party officially organized in Jackson, Michigan, to oppose Democrats’ pro-slavery policies

February 11, 1856 Republican Montgomery Blair argues before U.S. Supreme Court on behalf of his client, the slave Dred Scott; later served in President Lincoln’s Cabinet

February 22, 1856 First national meeting of the Republican Party, in Pittsburgh, to coordinate opposition to Democrats’ pro-slavery policies

March 27, 1856 First meeting of Republican National Committee in Washington, DC to oppose Democrats’ pro-slavery policies

May 22, 1856 For denouncing Democrats’ pro-slavery policy, Republican U.S. Senator Charles Sumner (R-MA) is beaten nearly to death on floor of Senate by U.S. Rep. Preston Brooks (D-SC), takes three years to recover

March 6, 1857 Republican Supreme Court Justice John McLean issues strenuous dissent from decision by 7 Democrats in infamous Dred Scott case that African-Americans had no rights “which any white man was bound to respect”

June 26, 1857 Abraham Lincoln declares Republican position that slavery is “cruelly wrong,” while Democrats “cultivate and excite hatred” for blacks

And in more recent times:

September 15, 1981 President Ronald Reagan establishes the White House Initiative on Historically Black Colleges and Universities, to increase African-American participation in federal education programs

June 29, 1982 President Ronald Reagan signs 25-year extension of 1965 Voting Rights Act

August 10, 1988 President Ronald Reagan signs Civil Liberties Act of 1988, compensating Japanese-Americans for deprivation of civil rights and property during World War II internment ordered by FDR

November 21, 1991 President George H. W. Bush signs Civil Rights Act of 1991 to strengthen federal civil rights legislation

August 20, 1996 Bill authored by U.S. Rep. Susan Molinari (R-NY) to prohibit racial discrimination in adoptions, part of Republicans’ Contract With America, becomes law

April 26, 1999 Legislation authored by U.S. Senator Spencer Abraham (R-MI) awarding Congressional Gold Medal to civil rights pioneer Rosa Parks is transmitted to President

January 25, 2001 U.S. Senate Republican Policy Committee declares school choice to be “Educational Emancipation”

March 19, 2003 Republican U.S. Representatives of Hispanic and Portuguese descent form Congressional Hispanic Conference

May 23, 2003 U.S. Senator Sam Brownback (R-KS) introduces bill to establish National Museum of African American History and Culture

February 26, 2004 Hispanic Republican U.S. Rep. Henry Bonilla (R-TX) condemns racist comments by U.S. Rep. Corrine Brown (D-FL); she had called Asst. Secretary of State Roger Noriega and several Hispanic Congressmen “a bunch of white men...you all look alike to me”

Also the The Klu Klux Klan was created by the democrats for the express reason of terrorizing blacks and republicans in the south to prevent them from voting, and that every known Klansman that were members of congress have been democrats.

Rush says THANK YOU to putative potus


No, really! In response to the "You would think they would be saying thank you." nonsense this past week, Rush officially says thanks to Mr. Big-Ears-McSpendy-Pants aka the putative potus perched illegally in the people's white house (... this is good):

* * * * * *

"Mr. President, I want to thank you for seizing General Motors and Chrysler. I want to thank you for appointing a pervert as our safe schools czar. I would like to thank you, Mr. President, for the generational theft that you have committed with all of this borrowing and spending. You have spent the wealth of two to three, maybe four generations in the future, before they're even born. I want to thank you, Mr. President, for insulting and endangering Israel. I want to thank you, Mr. President, for driving up the unemployment rate to near double digits for years to come. I want to thank you, Mr. President, for telling everybody that it's going to be double digits as the new norm. I want to thank you, Mr. President, for exploding the annual deficit to the level where it can never be repaid. I'd like to thank you, Mr. President, for targeting and destroying private health insurance companies. I want to thank you, Mr. President, for pushing for Khalid Sheikh Mohammed to stand trial in New York City and receive full constitutional rights at a cost of $200 million per year. I want to thank you for that. I want to thank you for helping to destroy the housing market, Mr. President. And, Mr. President, I would love to thank you for your arrogance, because arrogance is part and parcel of an authoritarian leader of a regime. I would like to also thank you, Mr. President, for your divisiveness. I would like to thank you for ignoring the public union pension time bombs waiting to explode out there. I would like to thank you, Mr. President, for mocking and disrespecting the American people. And I'd like to thank you for your never-ending support of the New Black Panthers and for ACORN. I'd like to thank you, Mr. President, for embracing our enemies and snubbing our allies. But most of all, Mr. President, thank you for arousing the sleeping silent majority because we have been asleep too long. November is coming, Mr. President. That is when we will really thank you."

LOL Rush, you rock baby. Full text of Rush's 'thank you' from Apr 16th 2010 post here.

Random Apr 15th pix from 50 state protests across USA

Just a few more pictures from April 15th 2010 Taxed Enough Already rallies across America from "Tax Day Tea Party 2010 Gala Extravaganza" at MoonBattery.com

Pix from where you ask? ...Oh, in about 50 of 50 states!

MoonBattery has much more, here a few good ones:


Florida

Texas

Michigan

Georgia

Washington
Hey Washington and lamestream media:
CAN YOU HEAR US NOW?
The combined 19 stories you did (NBC, ABC, CBS) on TEA parties in 2009 doesn't quite cut the mustard...

Don't forget to thank a DEM for the financial crisis!

The banking failures of 2008 were because of the housing crisis caused by mortgage lenders handing out bad loans. The biggest offenders: Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac

Biggest supporters of F.Mae & F.Mac? DEMOCRATS INCLUDING B.H.O. who received a huge PAYOFF from these orgs.

IPCC audit exposes peer-reviewed reliances false with 5,600 lies


Latest from JoNova "The IPCC, 5,600 white lies" asks "How many times do we need to show the IPCC are incompetent and dishonest?" and "What matters here is not that the IPCC only have 70% of their references “peer reviewed”. What matters is that they have been exposed as fakers. They lied. They poured scorn on anyone who put forward arguments, no matter how strong, that had not jumped through the rigged, bureaucratic hurdle known as peer review."
"There is No "Scientific Consensus" on Global warming" site advises "UN's Climate Bible Gets 21 "F"s on Report Card" 14 April 2010

TORONTO -- 21 of 44 chapters in the United Nations' Nobel-winning climate bible earned an F on a report card released today. Forty citizen auditors from 12 countries examined 18,500 sources cited in the report – finding 5,600 to be not peer-reviewed.

More about "WHY THESE FINDINGS MATTER - Governments around the world need to base their policies on impeccable research - not a report that relies on 5,587 instances of grey literature to make its case."
Donna Framboise (who created the "no consenus.org" site) advises:
"Rajendra Pachauri, the chairman of the IPCC, has spent years telling anyone who'll listen that this report is based only and solely on peer-reviewed literature. Important, influential organizations such as the US Environmental Protection Agency have deflected criticism of their own positions by pointing to the climate bible and to Pachauri's insistence that it "relies entirely on peer reviewed literature in carrying out its assessment."

The myth has been disseminated most effectively, however, by the media. Some of the most reputable outlets imaginable have told their readers and viewers over and over again that the climate bible should be trusted because it is based 100 percent on peer-reviewed scientific literature.

The citizen audit report I released yesterday puts this myth to rest. More than 5,000 of the sources cited in the climate bible are not peer-reviewed. Many turn out to be press releases, discussion papers, and working papers. These are all informal documents, whose veracity has not been tested. In numerous cases, they were produced by advocacy groups - or by political and bureaucratic bodies with their own agendas."
"Climate Quotes" suggests "This audit has dealt the final blow to the claim that the IPCC relies solely on peer-reviewed literature."
Tom Nelson's blog led me to read about the U.S. biofuel scam at MasterSource. Why a scam? Bad economics, environmental waste and bad prospects.

Even the left leaning UK site 'the Guardian' had reported in July 2008: The biofuel has caused a food crisis known since July 2008 "Biofuels have forced global food prices up by 75% - far more than previously estimated - according to a confidential World Bank report obtained by the Guardian."

Master Source's Conclusion "Agriculture faces many difficulties, from how to establish land rights to how to disseminate technology or adapt to climate change. But the biofuel problem is a no-brainer.

Creating an artificial market with subsidies is no way to reduce emissions, save rainforests or feed the poor. Biofuel subsidies are just a Green handout to farm lobbies in rich countries: it is time to end them."

HEY WORLD, R U LISTENING? Evidence shows (time and time again) the IPCC and the UN are LIARS ... so what u gonna do about it?

Just like USA, NZ politicians LIE about TAXES, too


Do all politicians lie or are they generally trying to serve the public? Is the MAIN purpose of ther MANY political lies to get the public to PAY MORE TAXES? I think that is OFTEN the case!... Well New Zealand's latest elected rulers (National party) have out right LIED about ETS. ETS is just a TAX scheme to get gullible NZ public to feel good about paying more taxes since that MUST save the planet. More taxing saves the planet? How so? When NO industry eg "CARBON OUTPUT" is STOPPING ANYWHERE WORLD WIDE? I'm not a warmist. I think if the planet DID warm up because of humans, it would be a GOOD thing. Warmth and more C02 = more greenery, more oxygen, more life. How many species live at the equator? How many live at the frozen poles? Well, with recent LACK of sun spot activity (which better tracks against natural warming and cooling cycles) AND volcanoes spewing dust, the globe is now forcast to COOL for the next 20 years. How will TAXING citizens help again? The public must come to their senses! They have in Germany and France: France CANCELLED THEIR ETS plans. NO OTHER country has any ETS (yet) because many in the public have learned the 'global warming' push by the Gorists and greenies IS A LIE.

That is my rant for today...

ACT's John Boscowan (who is awesome), like many New Zealanders, is way TOO polite in his latest press release:

"Stop Trying to Mislead Us on the ETS Dr Smith" John Boscawen MP, ACT New Zealand Press Release - Friday, April 16 2010.

"ACT Climate Change spokesperson John Boscawen today called on Climate Change Issues Minister Hon Dr Nick Smith to stop misleading the public over the costs of his Emissions Trading Scheme.

"Earlier today Nick Smith said that ‘New Zealand would face a deficit of 22 million tonnes, or $446 million without the ETS’. This is misleading. Unlike the very real costs that will be imposed on all New Zealanders due to the ETS from July 1, the $446 million figure is purely hypothetical," Mr Boscawen said.

"Dr Smith’s calculations factor in the cost to the Government when foresters fell their post -1990 trees after 2012. However, this cost is illusionary. Given that no successor agreement to the Kyoto Protocol has or is likely to be agreed to, from 2013 there simply will not be any obligations for New Zealand to meet.

"Moreover, in any event, the international political reality is that any obligation that does eventuate would not be enforced; as evidenced by Canada’s recent refusal to pay any shortfall it might theoretically be liable for.

"Nick Smith should not be using theoretical costs that he knows are highly unlikely to eventuate and would not be enforced even if they did to justify the very real costs he is imposing on New Zealanders. We deserve better.

"The reality is, that come July 1, all New Zealanders will be faced with a five percent increase in electricity prices and a four cents per litre increase in petrol prices. These are real costs that ordinary New Zealanders will have to pay solely because of the ETS. By contrast Dr Smith’s $446 million is a purely theoretical figure that in all likelihood will not eventuate.

"Contrary to Dr Smith’s assertions the ETS is not saving New Zealanders any money at all.

"Dr Smith is doing New Zealanders a disservice by trying to confuse this important debate further with statements such as the one today. I call on him to stick to the real costs and to spend his time justifying to ordinary New Zealanders why their electricity and energy costs are about to increase needlessly, rather than to issue meaningless press releases like the one today," Mr Boscawen said. "


HEY PRIME MINSTER JOHN KEY: PLEASE WAKE UP

SAVE NZ FROM THIS NONSENSE AND SCRAP ETS

Arizona draws GRANDE line in the sand about illegal aliens

What don't people get about the word "ILLEGAL"? Doesn't EVERY country have its own IMMIGRATION LAW? Well, yes, they DO! Illegal aliens are NOT immigrants!

They do NOT HAVE "RIGHTS": THEY.ARE.ILLEGAL.

Arizona has taken steps to enforce their border with Mexico and try to get rid of some of their illegal alienas. IT.IS.ABOUT.DAMN.TIME.

From The Examiner: "Arizona is known to be the main entry point for illegal aliens, and this has been a thorn in their side for decades. Some say it stands to reason to also be a main entry point for drugs, but California and Texas seem to be running neck and neck for that prize.

Local authorities have finally had enough. A new bill will help to control illegal immigration, and it gives sweeping new local powers to determine a person's legal status. Traditionally, this has been the domain of Federal authorities, but since little or nothing has been done, Arizona is taking the "bull by the horns". "

From AZ Central: "The vote also was watched closely on the national stage, where there was widespread agreement the bill would put Arizona on the verge of being the national leader in tough immigration policy.

Currently, immigration offenses are violations of federal law, something most local law-enforcement agencies cannot enforce. The Arizona bill would require anyone whom police suspect of being in the country illegally to produce "an alien registration document," such as a green card, or be charged with a Class 1 misdemeanor and pay a minimum $500 fine.

"I think there is overwhelming evidence that Arizona has the most muscular immigration enforcement in the nation," said Steven Camarota, research director at the Center for Immigration Studies, a group in Washington, D.C., that favors policies that force illegal immigrants to leave the country. "

Trust me, A LOT OF AMERICANS FEEL LIKE THIS VIDEO GUY BELOW... correct-a-mundo... (dude, don't hurt yourself making videos... unless you have good health care?..... oh... wait....)




Michelle Malkin has the story with "Arizona acts to restore immigration sanity, open-borders lobby up in arms".

Frugal Cafe Zone notes "Huge Raids on Mexican Human Smuggling in Arizona & Tough New Illegal Immigration Law — Avenge Robert Krentz’ Murder". AWESOME!

Citizen reporter Allison provides pix from a Chicago Apr 15 TEA party

One of my Facebook friends named Allison advised she was heading off to the April 15th tax day TEA party rally at Daley Plaza in Chicago. I told her: cool, be a citizen reporter and let us know how it goes! These are a few of Allison's pix.


Allison looking cute holding her clever home made sign...

& all types of Americans in the crowd ... shocking? (... not)

the constitution IS the law, now it needs enforcement

a few of the good people of CHICAGO rally in Daley plaza
... unhappy with over spending by several of "their" leaders...?
... things that make you go "hmmmmm" "mmm" "mmmm"

besides being CUTE, this little girl is CORRECT!

Great pix, Allison - you are a star citizen reporter!
More pix from Daley Plaza at Backyard Conservative :)

So also, on a side note; how are those "coffee parties" going you might ask? Well, "I hate the media" reports one recent "rally" had a whopping 7 people. Wow. Can anyone say de-caf?
And OF COURSE, I will never forgot Rick Santelli's AWESOME rant on the floor of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange (my old employer for 8 awesome years: great times at the CME!). Chicago Ray (and at Big Journalism) discusses Mr. Santelli's RANT that sparked the TEA parties last Feb 2009. Thanks Rick - love ya!
Commentor "Tressa" at Big Journalism sums it up with "Little did he (Rick) know that his shout out lauched a grassroots movement that makes the Dems have nightmares...The tea party movement has brought Americans out of their long sleep and now a sleeping giant has awakened...Pandora's Box has been opened, and you know this movement is a success because when the liberal MSM and liberal representatives of our government disparage the movement, you know you are feared and you have arrived... Good Luck Tea Party Movement... Nov 2010 is right around the corner when we take our country back from the brink... " Good on ya Tressa
... also...
The B-Cast at Breitbart and the Media Research Center's Rich Noyes discuss his latest report -- "TV's Tea Party Travesty: How ABC, CBS and NBC Have Dismissed and Disparaged the Tea Party Movement." In 2009, these networks did COMBINED count of 19 stories on TEA parties... not very much, eh?! More shock there, huh.

NZ: Want all Prices to Rise on 1 July? Reject the ETS now!


From an ACT email: NZ public welcome to the Public Meetings below to learn how:

- the NZ Govt and power generators will soon be celebrating windfall profits at your expense- Petrol will soon go up 4 cents per litre because of the ETS

- the above rises will double to 10% and 8 cents per litre by 2013

- the cost of EVERYTHING ELSE will rise after 1 July due to power and transport increases

- These rises do not include rises in GST and other 'normal' increases

- New Zealand is the only country to press ahead with such a punishing eco-tax- our major trading partners have put the brakes on their emissions remedies

- only by making your voice heard can you avoid this eco-tax.

Rodney Hide or John Boscawen will tell you how to make your voice heard on:

Monday 19 April - St Thomas's Church Hall, Crn St Heliers Bay Rd & Kohimarama Rd, 11am

Thursday 15 April - Dunsandel Community Hall, Hororata Dunsandel Rd, Christchurch 7pm

Monday 3 May - Mellow Manor, Hamilton/Cambridge Highway, Tamahere, 7.30pm

For more information call Karen Bridgman on 09 531 5531

= = = = = = =

Excerpt from earlier speech from John Boscowan 14-Apr-2010:

"Let’s turn now to the Emissions Trading Scheme:

In just under three months time, on 1 July, New Zealand’s ETS is to be extended across most sectors of our economy:

The ETS is deliberately intended to make energy - both electricity and petrol - more expensive and Treasury forecast its immediate impact will result in a five percent increase in the price of electricity and a four cents per litre increase in the price of petrol and double again in 2013.

These increases will be paid by all New Zealanders and as a consequence of the way our electricity and carbon markets work, the result will be both windfall profits to the power companies, and windfall tax gains to the government.

New Zealand will be the first and only country in the world to have such a comprehensive ETS tax. "
