Catholic Bishop: Lack of Young People May Pose Greater Threat Than Population Growth

By CNSNews.com Staff

(CNSNews.com) - Roman Catholic Bishop Thomas John Paprocki of Springfield, Ill., said in a sermon delivered on Aug. 16 that a lack of young people may pose a greater threat to national well-being than population growth.


“The prospect of an additional 100 million Americans by 2050 worries some environmentalists, who criticize families with a large number of children as detrimental to society,” the bishop said. “They seem to think that there won’t be enough room or natural resources for so many people.”

“The reality, however, is that even with 100 million more people, the United States will be only one-sixth as crowded as Germany is today,” the bishop said.

“Such criticism also fails to take into account that a dwindling population and a lack of young people may pose a greater threat to the nation’s well-being than population growth,” he said. “A rapidly declining population could create a society that doesn’t have the work force to support the elderly and, overall, is less concerned with the nation’s long-term future.”

Here are some key excerpts from the bishop’s sermon:

People who study population trends, called demographers, predict that the population of the United States will grow significantly in the next half century. Estimates of the United States population at the middle of the 21st century vary, from the U.N.’s 404 million to the U.S. Census Bureau’s 422 to 458 million. So a conservative estimate would be 400 million people, or roughly 100 million more than we have today. The United States is also expected to grow somewhat older. The portion of the population that is currently at least 65 years old—13 percent—is expected to reach about 20 percent by 2050.

The prospect of an additional 100 million Americans by 2050 worries some environmentalists, who criticize families with a large number of children as detrimental to society. They seem to think that there won’t be enough room or natural resources for so many people. The reality, however, is that even with 100 million more people, the United States will be only one-sixth as crowded as Germany is today. Such criticism also fails to take into account that a dwindling population and a lack of young people may pose a greater threat to the nation’s well-being than population growth.

A rapidly declining population could create a society that doesn’t have the work force to support the elderly and, overall, is less concerned with the nation’s long-term future. One demographer, writing in Smithsonian Magazine, went so far as to say that the big news in demographic circles is “not catastrophic population growth. It's catastrophic population shrinkage. Yes, shrinkage. True, the total global population has not yet finished increasing. But nearly half the world’s population lives in countries where the native-born are not reproducing fast enough to replace themselves.”

Sheriff Clarke: Obama ‘Started This War on Police’


By Michael W. Chapman 
August 31, 2015


(CNSNews.com) – In response to the execution-style murder of Harris County Deputy Sheriff Darren Goforth, who was shot multiple times at a gas station in Cypress, Texas, Milwaukee County Sheriff David A. Clarke Jr. strongly criticized what he called the “black lies matter” movement and stressed that President Barack Obama himself had “started this war on police.”

On Fox’s “Justice With Judge Jeanine” on Aug. 29, the host asked Sheriff Clarke, “Is it open season on law enforcement in this country?”

Sheriff Clarke said, “Judge, I am too pissed off tonight to be diplomatic about what’s going on and I’m not going to stick my head in the sand about it.”

“I said last December that war had been declared on the American police officer led by some high profile people, one of them coming out of the White House, and one coming out of the United States Department of Justice,” said Clarke.

“And it’s open season right now,” he said. “There’s no doubt about it. Anytime a law enforcement officer is killed, a little bit of every police officer in America dies along with them.”

Later in the interview, Judge Jeanine asked, “Finally, sheriff, the national rhetoric that’s going on. You say that people need to push back and we need, when we see things on Facebook and social media. You know, the truth is, people can say and do what they want. This is America. But, without leadership, there isn’t going to be any different reaction. More people seem to be emboldened by this kind of thing.”

Sheriff Clarke said, “Right, and that’s why I said that the president of the United States started this war on police.”

“Look, and I know what you mean, judge, by that, but it’s not absolute,” said the sheriff. “You can’t say anything you want in the United States of America: you cannot threaten people’s lives, you can’t call for the killing of people like we’re seeing from some of these things.”

“That is not First Amendment protected,” said Clarke. “That is filth, that is slime, and there are some law enforcement implications that can be dealt with at the Department of Justice and with state attorney’s offices across the United States.”

“I love the First Amendment,” he continued. “I love freedom of speech. You are not free to threaten my life or anybody else’s.”

Deputy Darren Goforth was killed on Friday, Aug. 28, while he was pumping gas into his car at a gas station. The killer walked up from behind and shot Goforth multiple times in the back.

Shannon J. Miles, 30, was arrested on Aug. 29 and charged with capital murder in the death of Goforth. Several Texas law enforcement officials have called the murder a “cold-blooded assassination.”

Federal Judge Orders IRS to Disclose WH Requests for Taxpayer Info


BY: Lachlan Markay
A federal judge on Friday ordered the Internal Revenue Service to reveal White House requests for taxpayers’ private information, advancing a probe into whether administration officials targeted political opponents by revealing such information.

Judge Amy Berman Jackson of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia rejected the IRS’s argument that a law designed to protect the confidentiality of such information protected the public disclosure of such communications with the White House.

The law, 26 U.S. Code § 6103, was passed after the Watergate scandal to protect citizens from retribution by federal officials. Jackson scoffed at the administration’s claims that the statute could be used to shield investigations into whether private tax information had been used in such a manner.

“The Court is unwilling to stretch the statute so far, and it cannot conclude that section 6103 may be used to shield the very misconduct it was enacted to prohibit,” Jackson wrote in her order.

The decision was a victory for Cause of Action, the legal watchdog group that sued the IRS in 2013 seeking records of its communications with the White House and potential disclosure of confidential taxpayer information.

Pockets Of Resistance Fight Back! Demand Local Approval Of Refugee Invasion!


Submitted by Terresa Monroe-Hamilton

Terrorists have made it known they want to manipulate the refugee program to sneak operatives to the West…” – Mike McCaul


This shocking video  (also shown below)describes the imminent threat we face as the State Department moves to secretly bring 65,000 unvetted Syrians to America under Obama’s regime with no local knowledge or control.
The federal Refugee Resettlement (RR) program is operated today by the Global Left, the UN, Islam, and religious frauds. The goal is to Change America by Changing its People.

As a result, we are drowning in refugees who are destroying our Constitutional freedoms, overburdening our welfare system and posing a genuine national security threat.

Will you as an American citizen stand up and fight this national suicide via LEGAL IMMIGRATION?

By signing this petition, you are telling your Governor and state representatives to take specific action to allow City and County Councils to decide if their budgets can support refugee resettlement and if their people want it!

What’s needed is a proviso to your state budget such as this:

No state funds shall be expended to assist in the U.S. Refugee Resettlement Program unless the community targeted for resettlement approves.

Sign the petition if these are your words:

I will not tolerate giving my tax dollars to secretly “planted”, unvetted refugees that would otherwise go to aid poor families in my community.

I demand you do your job by representing the Will of The People rather than the Resettlement industry that may be funding your campaigns.

Once you have signed the petition, check to see your signature among your fellow patriots marked on the interactive map.

The Donald Trump phenomenon: hidden meanings


by Jon Rappoport
August 30, 2015

You could take the five major news networks and filter Jesus Christ, Buddha, Hitler, Stalin, Attila, Gandhi, and Lawrence Welk through them, and eventually you wouldn’t be able to tell the difference among them. They’d all come across in the same way. That, in fact, is the purpose of television.” 

I have nothing against hope, but the brand of naïve hope that surfaces during every presidential election season is truly ridiculous.

Candidate after candidate lies through his teeth, and the people buy in.

Now some are saying The Donald is running to form a third party and thus hand the election to Hillary. Whereas the preferred alternative would be what? Prince Jeb? There’s a difference between Hillary and Jeb? Who’s kidding who?

Or they say The Donald is running to provide a safety valve, so the American people can blow off steam, but ultimately wind up with nothing to show for it.

If that were true, so what? Public despondency will set in? What grotesque political swamp-soup are we wading in now?

I approach this from a different angle.

Feds fighting to keep cash seized from person never charged with crime


Now we are subjected to unreasonable search and seizure. If the "authorities" cannot find anything on you, they will take what you have anyway Sheer travesty and government sanctioned theft under Civil Asset Forfeiture.

Federal prosecutors are battling in court to keep $167,000 in cash seized in a 2013 traffic stop, despite the motorist never being charged in the incident and the Obama administration clamped down this spring on such asset seizures and forfeitures.

The case -- which highlights the ongoing concerns about the government unjustly seizing money and property -- began when a Nevada state trooper pulled over the motorist on a cross-country trip to California.

The trooper stopped Hawaii resident Straughn Gorman’s motor-home in January 2013 for allegedly going too slow along Interstate 80.

According to court documents, Gorman was allowed to proceed without a citation despite the trooper suspecting he was hiding cash.

The trooper said he couldn’t inspect the vehicle because he would have needed a canine unit and for the dog to detect drugs, which would have created enough probable cause to get a search warrant.

However, no canine unit was available so the trooper released Gorman but not before requesting the county sheriff’s office stop him again -- about 50 minutes later and this time with a drug-sniffing dog.


No drugs were found during the second stop, in which Gorman was pulled over for two alleged traffic violation. But his vehicle, computer, cellphone and the cash, stashed throughout the vehicle, were seized.

In June, a federal judge in Nevada ordered Gorman’s cash be returned.

In his ruling, District Judge Larry Hicks cited Gorman’s “prolonged detention” for the alleged traffic violations and criticized federal authorities for failing to disclose that the first officer requested the second stop.

“The second stop was not based on independent, reasonable suspicion sufficient to justify the prolonged investigation,” wrote Hicks, a Bush administration appointee. “The two stops were for minor traffic violations, and they both were extended beyond the legitimate purposes for such traffic stops.”

Hicks also said in his ruling the second stop never would have happened if the first officer had not relayed information about the first stop, which included a vehicle description, suspicion about concealed cash and that a “canine sniff” would likely be needed to get probable cause for a search.

The federal government earlier this month appealed Hicks' ruling in the 9th Circuit Court, in San Francisco, considered among the most liberal in the country.

Federal attorneys did not submit a reason for the appeal in their one-paragraph request, according to The Daily Signal, which first reported the request.

The court is expected to also decide whether Gorman should be reimbursed $153,000 in legal fees, which federal lawyers don’t want to pay.

The first court proceeding is scheduled for November 19.

The Justice Department earlier this year issued a series of directives to reform and restrict its policies on asset seizures and forfeitures, amid the complaints about government abuse and overreach.

“We are keenly aware of concerns raised about certain seizures and forfeiture practices,” the agency told the Senate Judiciary Committee in April. “The department takes seriously any and all allegations of perceived or actual abuse.”

The first of the changes were announced in January by then-Attorney General Eric Holder, starting with forfeitures.

Holder said federal agencies could no longer take assets seized by state and local law enforcement agencies, except for those “directly related to public safety concerns” including firearms, ammunition, explosives and property associated with child pornography.

Among the valuables the agencies can no longer take are cash and vehicles.

In March, Holder announced changes to banking laws that allow money to be seized from people who make deposits below specific amounts to intentionally keep the transaction from being reported to federal authorities -- a scheme known as “structuring.”

Holder said authorities would now focus on “the most serious offenses” and essentially that money could be seized only after the defendant is charge with a crime or found to have been engaged in a crime beyond structuring, according to document the Justice Department gave FoxNews.com this week.

The minimum-deposit laws were enacted to detect and nab drug dealers, terrorists and other money-launders and criminals trying to conceal their enterprise and cash. And they were enacted to create a money stream to provide financial compensation to crime victims.

The IRS seized more than $242 million in roughly 2,500 alleged structuring violations, from 2005 to 2012. However, no other criminal activity was alleged in roughly 33 percent of the cases, according to the Institute of Justice, which worked on a more recent case in North Carolina.

Last year, the IRS took $107,000 from Carolina small-business owner Lyndon McLellan after he made a series of deposits under $10,000.

McLellan owns a convenience store-restaurant-gas station. And many of his transactions are in cash.

The federal government offered to return half of McLellan’s cash, a standard move by federal officials who know many people cannot afford a lengthy court battle and would rather settle.

McLellan got back all of the money but wasn’t reimbursed roughly $22,000 in legal and accounting fees, Institute attorney Robert Everett Johnson said Tuesday.

“We’re pleased that Lyndon’s money has been returned,” Johnson said. “That the federal government returned the money validates he didn’t do anything wrong.”

However, Johnson expresses dismay that his client is still battling to recoup his costs and interest on the seized money, to which he appear entitled under the 2000 Civil Asset Forfeiture Reform Act.

“We thing the federal government should make him whole,” he said. “It simply cannot pretend that nothing happened.”

Huge turnouts: 320 PPs protested in 50 states


In the midst of the unfolding baby body parts selling scandal, thousands of Americans gathered outside more than 320 Planned Parenthood facilities across the country in hopes of ultimately shutting down the world’s largest abortion provider.

American Family Association co-sponsored the National Day of Protest against Planned Parenthood protest movement with 50 other pro-family organizations Saturday morning, joining the pro-life groups — Citizens for a Pro-Life Society, Created Equal, 40 Days for Life, and the Pro-Life Action League — that organized the rallies using the trending topics #ProtestPP and #PPSellsBodyParts to get the word out.


Why has it taken undercover videos to energize people to turn out in droves at Planned Parenthood protests?

On the wake of another uncovered atrocity

As LifeNews.com announces an eighth video released by the Center for Medical Progress, which recently hit the Internet with StemExpress’ CEO admitting that Planned Parenthood sells fully intact aborted babies, multitudes of Americans showed up between 9:00 and 11:00 a.m. Saturday to get the government to stop giving half a billion tax dollars to the abortion giant annually. The video, which is the eighth of a dozen being released by the pro-life group, also reportedly uncovers Planned Parenthood selling babies after being born alive at their abortion facilities.

The eighth video shows StemExpress CEO Cate Dyer laughing over buying and receiving shipments of fully intact aborted babies being from Planned Parenthood.

“Oh yeah, if you have intact cases — which we’ve done a lot — we sometimes ship those back to our lab in its entirety,” Dyer told an undercover operative in the eighth video. “Tell the lab it’s [a shipment of intact unborn babies] coming. They don’t want to open the box and go ‘Oh, my god.'”

Higher turnouts than expected

Pro-life advocates from all 50 states and Washington, D.C., are sending a message loud and clear that they will no longer tolerate the government funding more than 700 Planned Parenthoods that routinely kill preborn babies for one profit and then sell their bodies for a bonus monetary gain. Most protests reported participation many times over what they expected.

Mexico warns Texas not to refuse its immigrants’ babies U.S. birth certificates


Since when does Mexico or any other foreign governmnt tell the U.S. what to do?
Oh, I forgot, the globalist dominated UN is now in  charge.

By Bourgeois

The Mexican government is warning that Texas’ denial of birth certificates for U.S. children born here to undocumented immigrants stands to imperil the relationship between Mexico and the Lone Star State.

The concern was raised in an amicus brief filed Monday evening to lend support to immigrants parents who sued Texas after being denied birth certificates for their U.S.-born children, even after showing their “matrículas,” the ID cards issued by the Mexican Consulate to undocumented immigrants.

Mexico says the practice stands in stark contrast to the historical practice among countries to accept passports or other forms of ID to issue birth certificates.

“[It] not only jeopardizes their dignity and well-being, but could threaten the unique relationship between Mexico and Texas,” the Mexican government said in a brief tied to a lawsuit filed against the state by Texas Civil Rights Project and Texas Rio Grande Legal Aid.

The lawsuit, the Texas Tribune reported, was filed on behalf of six U.S. citizen children and their undocumented parents, who came from Mexico, Honduras and Guatemala. Other groups since have joined the suit.

A main point of contention is the all-out refusal at some county registrars offices to accept as a valid form of ID anything short of a U.S. visa or consulate ID card, the Tribune said.

The families who are suing say that Texas is violating the 14th amendment and that the state is superseding federal immigration laws.

Texas officials are claiming sovereignty issues and argue that the United States cannot fight them.

They long have said that consulate-issued identification cards are not considered reliable forms of ID.

The Mexican government is requesting that Texas be clear about what two forms of ID it will accept in order to give the children U.S. birth certificate.

“Our argument isn’t ‘yes matrícula, no matrícula,’” said attorney Jennifer Harbury, who represents the families, to the Tribune. “The argument is ‘what will you take that people can actually get?’ They have to take something. [The children] were born here. They are U.S. citizens.”

The amicus brief also claims that denying the children U.S. birth certificates blocks their claims to Mexican citizenship. A child born to Mexican parents has that right but must show proof of identity. Infringing on that is a violation of international law, the brief states.

Mexican Consulate officials argue that the matrícula is, in many ways, more secure because it includes biometric technology, unlike the driver’s licenses in some states.

They say a parent’s undocumented status should not affect a child’s ability to obtain a birth certificate.

“We think that they are not immigration authorities,” he said. “The passport is the official way to identify oneself.”

Bobby Jindal Fights Back After Louisiana Sued for Terminating Planned Parenthood Medicaid Contract


by Kate Scanlon

Planned Parenthood announced it will sue Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal for terminating its Medicaid contract with the state.

“Planned Parenthood is flailing,” said Mike Reed, Jindal’s communications director, in a statement to The Daily Signal. “This lawsuit is without merit and the state will aggressively defend our right to cancel the contract.”

The lawsuit is the latest in a series of efforts Planned Parenthood has made to exonerate itself following allegations that it is engaged in the sale of fetal body parts.

Jindal, a Republican, ended Planned Parenthood’s contract with Louisiana following the release of several undercover videos by the Center for Medical Progress depicting Planned Parenthood officials’ discussing the sale of fetal body parts at the organization’s affiliates.

Elizabeth Slattery, a legal fellow at The Heritage Foundation, said that “even though the Obama administration is attempting to pressure states not to cut Planned Parenthood’s Medicaid funding, states are within their rights to do so if Planned Parenthood has violated the law.”

“In light of videos released by the Center for Medical Progress, there are serious questions about whether Planned Parenthood has violated a number of federal laws,” said Slattery.

“This is the same Planned Parenthood affiliate that was forced to pay the state of Texas $1.4 million in a settlement for allegations of Medicaid fraud,” she added.

Reed said Jindal has the right to terminate the state’s contract with Planned Parenthood.

“The Medicaid provider contract between the Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals and Planned Parenthood gives either party the right to cancel the contract at will with a 30-day notice. Governor Jindal and [the Department of Health and Hospitals] chose to exercise that right to cancel,” Reed said in the statement.

According to the Washington Post, Planned Parenthood has requested that a federal judge prevent the governor’s order from going into effect.

“I canceled Planned Parenthood’s contracts to make sure they weren’t getting taxpayer dollars from the state of Louisiana,” Jindal said in a video about the lawsuit posted on his Twitter account.

“I’m not going to back down,” he added.

Spokesmen for Planned Parenthood have called the videos “heavily edited,” and have denied that the organization makes a profit from its tissue donation program.

“This political grandstanding could have real and devastating consequences for the women, men and young people who rely on us,” Cecile Richards, chief executive of Planned Parenthood, said in a statement provided to The Hill. “And that’s why we’re going to fight this with everything we’ve got.”

The Daily Signal previously reported that when demonstrators gathered outside the governor’s mansion to protest his decision to defund Planned Parenthood, his staff played the Center for Medical Progress videos for them.

The sale of fetal human body parts is a felony in the United States.

Palestinian Islamic Jihad Planned Terrorist Attack at Joseph's Tomb



Night visit under IDF guard, November 2009

Israeli authorities foiled a Palestinian cell's plan to conduct a terrorist attack targeting Jewish worshipers at Joseph's Tomb in the West Bank, Israel's domestic security agency Shin Bet announced.

The Gaza-based Palestinian Islamic Jihad terrorist organization reportedly armed and directed the cell to carry out a bombing and shooting attack, featuring people associated with various Palestinian factions and demonstrating a high level of cohesion.

Four Palestinians were arrested, including Nassim Damiri, 30, who is affiliated with Fatah and was arrested on numerous occasions in the past; Mahmed Damiri, 23, a Palestinian Authority police officer; Yasser Tzarawi, 25, a Hamas operative with a prison record; and Adwan Nazel, 24, of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad were also among the detained.

The plan allegedly involved Nazel and Tzarawi providing logistical support, weapons, surveillance and cover, while the Damiri cousins conduct the terrorist attack.

This development comes amid rising tensions between Israel the Islamic Jihad, as the group threatens to retaliate against Israel if Mohammad Allan – the formerhunger-striking detainee affiliated with the terrorist group – is harmed.

Last week, the Israel Defense Forces blamed Islamic Jihad operatives in Syria for firing four rockets which landed in the Golan Heights and the Upper Galilee – signalling the first time that rockets from Syria struck Israel proper since the 1973 Yom Kippur War.

While the terrorist group denied involvement in the cross-border missile barrage, Israel accused Iran of funding and ordering the attack.

"We have credible information that the attack was carried out by the Palestinian Islamic Jihad organization and was facilitated and directed by an Iranian operative Saeed Izaddhi, who heads the Palestinian unit in the Al-Quds Force of Iran's Revolutionary Guard Corps," said Israel's Foreign Ministry in a statement sent to the world powers that signed a nuclear agreement with Iran last month.

While touring Israel's northern border with senior military officials, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon warned that part of the Iranian funds to be released in conjunction with the nuclear deal will be transferred to Iranian sponsored terrorist proxies dedicated to Israel's destruction.

Israeli officials revealed that retaliatory air strikes killed at least four operatives from the cell responsible for the rocket attack.

The Islamic Jihad has close ties with Iran and maintains a significant rocket arsenal in Gaza, however these latest developments signal the group's intentions to expand their bases of operations to the West Bank and Israel's northern border at Iran's behest.

FIX BAYONETS: THE TRUTH...THE LIES...THE AGENDA


by Danny Jeffrey

Forever seeking truth in the Valley of the Shadow, I am well aware of the many snares, the deceptions, the treasonous, and those who live in a state of ultimate denial; unwilling to follow through the valley and sadly, unwilling to admit that they are already there and being left behind. Everything in life is a trade-off, and that includes the truth. If you choose to know the truth then you must accept the responsibility that comes with it and say goodbye to daydreams based only on fantasy that insulate others from the world's harsh realities. If, on the other hand you choose to embrace daydreams and deny reality, you will have none but yourself to blame as daydreams crumble before the advent of abject terror.

As said, everything in life is a trade-off. Americans are without a doubt the most self indulgent creatures on the face of the Earth, and this is perhaps to be expected, as we have long been the most productive nation on this planet. I have no trouble with a certain degree of self indulgence, until it becomes self deception. When that occurs you are denying the truth, embracing a lie, and walking into the baited trap of The Agenda.

In the past I have seen many articles from the UK, Germany, Israel, and even Egypt telling their readers that it is hard to capture the attention of the American people as they are in the midst of an election cycle. My God! We are always in the midst of an election cycle as one occurs every two years and it takes two years of prepping, campaigning, and politicians altering their views and making false promises to all. The end results: Most of our people interested in our political scene pay little attention to anything else, and consequently suffer from a limited knowledge of world events, and those world events are foreshadowing of the future of what once was the American dream.

Alexis de Tocqueville once wrote "We are sleeping on a volcano...A wind of revolution blows, the storm is on the horizon."

But the American people do not want revolution, as it would upset their carefully planned lives, interfere with their vacations, and disrupt their children's liberal education. So they turn from the storm hoping for a great messiah that will turn back the storm, sweep away all opposition in 2016, and be the next Ronald Reagan. "Happy days are here again / The skies above are clear again / So let's sing a song of cheer again / Happy days are here again…"

Wrong!

Guide for the Mexican Migrant: Distributed by the Mexican Ministry of Foreign Relations




Were any of us aware of such a document? This official publication is literally a detailed "How To Illegally Cross The Border And Survive" manual.  
No matter what you may think of Trump, he is certainly right about "Mexico sending them here".

Those who feel that Washington D.C. is in collusion with the entire dynamic are  apparently absolutely correct. There is no way that they cannot know of such a blatantly detailed "How To" guide such as this.

View the Spanish language original here (PDF).

Esteemed Countryman:
The purpose of this guide is to provide you with practical advice that may prove useful to you in case you have made the difficult decision to search for employment opportunities outside of your country.

The sure way to enter another country is by getting your passport from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and the visa, which you may apply for at the embassy or consulate of the country you wish to travel to.



Reading this guide will make you aware of some basic questions about the legal consequences of your stay in the United States of America without the appropriate migratory documents, as well as about the rights you have in that country, once you are there, independent of your migratory status.However, in practice we see many Mexicans who try to cross the Northern Border without the necessary documents, through high risk zones that involve grave dangers, particularly in desert areas or rivers with strong, and not always obvious, currents.

Keep in mind always that there exist legal mechanisms to enter the United States of America legally.

In any case, if you encounter problems or run into difficulties, remember that Mexico has 45 consulates in that country whose locations you can find listed in this publication.



Familiarize yourself with the closest consulate and make use of it.
DANGERS IN CROSSING HIGH RISK ZONES

To cross the river can be very risky, above all if you cross alone and at night.

Heavy clothing increases in weight when wet and this makes swimming and floating difficult.



If you cross by desert, try to walk at times when the heat will not be too intense.

Highways and population centers are far apart, which means you will spend several days looking for roads, and you will not be able to carry foodstuffs or water for long periods of time. Also, you can get lost.



Salt water helps keep liquids in your body. Although you may feel more thirst if you drink salt water, the risk of dehydration is much less.

The symptoms of dehydration are:

— Little or no sweat.

— Dryness in the eyes and in the mouth.

— Headache.

— Tiredness and excessive exhaustion.

— Difficulty in walking and thinking.

— Hallucinations and visions.

If you get lost, guide yourself by lightposts, train tracks, or dirt roads.


BEWARE OF HUMAN TRAFFICKERS (COYOTES, POLLEROS)

They can deceive you with assurances of crossing in a few hours through the mountains and deserts. This is simply not so!

They can risk your life taking you across rivers, drainage canals, desert areas, train tracks, or highways. This has caused the deaths of hundreds of persons.

OPERATION FEAR

by Robby Bowling
When one tries to figure out how it is we got into this DISMAL MESS in this country you have to look at the big picture & the road it took for us to get here.....
Little by little we lost a step on our goals ....And .little by little we lost the vision of what a Good Hard-Working American was....And little by little we got confused, we got bewildered, we lost direction & we lost our faith.....

It was almost as if the National Psyche was undermined by a Grand but SLOW PLAN.....A Coup d' e'tat of sorts....but not by Military Generals or Rebels....But by the EVIL that LUSTS for Power, Control & our Money....

How does the Circus, the Side-Show Barker or the CON weave his spell....It's all in the ART of the LIE.....They manipulate your own desires to sell you through an illusion something that you actually already have & you don't really need...They do it through your fears....They convinced us through a relentless 24/7 propaganda program that our Everyday Fears would become OUR OWN Personal NIGHTMARE....And for the young & unsuspecting they did it by Behavior Modification in Schools & in the Workplace....And Guess what the Answer was to EVERY Question Known to Mankind was.....Your Omnipresent Messianic Acting Communist Government....
 Operation Mockingbird

Then the next step is all the Staging....The Government plants one False-Flag operation & story after another to get you to buy into the con....Think about it....The threats of Race Wars, the Threat of taking out Guns, The Threat of Class Warfare, The Assault on Religious Freedom, Slavery to Debt, Slavery to Meaningless Opulence, Narcissism & Threats of WAR...with MUSLIMS, RUSSIA, CHINA & the list goes on into infinity....But for WHOSE Gain....Those who sold you the CON are the only Winners....We lose, We lost, We were Stupid & we were BRAINWASHED into committing Suicide.....Like Monkey's running off a cliff...
 Rules For Radicals

Isn't it time to put fear aside....in the end they will KILL every damn one of us who oppose them....They Know who we are & where we are....They listen in to every conversation we have, they have SPYWARE on our Computers....Screw the FEAR...take the BASTARDS OUT....They are not your BEST Damn FRIEND...We are & have been nothing but PAWNS in the Game I Call ...."OPERATION FEAR" its worked like a champ....We have a Few FREEDOMS left....use them or lose them....your call ...

Obama has power to circumvent Congress on Iran nuclear deal




Acting on his own, President Obama can delist Iranian banks, commercial entities and individuals targeted for sanctions. He can order the Treasury Department to give out licenses allowing financial and commercial transactions with Iranian businesses. He also could provide sanctions relief for Iranian oil exports by treating legislation passed by Congress in 2012 as unconstitutional.


Even strong bipartisan disapproval by Congress of the Iranian nuclear deal won’t stop President Obama from implementing the agreement, so the vote next month is shaping up as a warning to Europe against resuming business with Tehran before the next U.S. president is elected.

Work in BigTech for Hire: Americans Need Not Apply

by IAN SMITH August 24, 2015 4:00 AM 

A post-graduate student-visa program is just another scheme to displace American technology workers. American technology workers won a big victory in the federal courts this month. The D.C. District Court ruled that a STEM-related visa program created by the Department of Homeland Security was potentially damaging to the domestic labor market and also in violation of federal rule-making procedure. For the plaintiffs in the case, the Washington Alliance of Technology Workers, however, the fight against BigTech lobbyists and Homeland Security has only just begun.

DHS’s so-called Optional Practical Training (OPT) program allows foreign nationals to live and work in the U.S. on a student visa even after graduation. In a rule promulgated by DHS in 2008, foreigners graduating in a STEM field at a U.S. school had these authorizations extended to nearly two and a half years after their graduation. U.S. employers love this because, on top of the longer work period, they have a greater chance to transition them into the H-1B program, a “professional specialty worker” visa that can last up to an additional six years. Also, employers receive a tax benefit for hiring OPT participants over Americans, as they do not have to pay Medicare and Social Security taxes for aliens on student visas.


Plaintiffs’ counsel, the Immigration Reform Law Institute (which I work for), argued in court that the OPT extension, created not by statute but entirely by DHS, was really just a way to circumvent the existing H-1B cap of 65,000 annual visa grants set down by Congress years before. Helpfully for us, DHS had already admitted that this was the purpose for the extension. As it explained in the agency rule creating the extension, “the H-1B category is greatly oversubscribed,” which, as a result, has “adversely affected the ability of US employers to recruit and retain skilled workers.” With the H-1B cap having been held up by Congress over the last few years, DHS did the next best thing. As H-1B guru Norm Matloff describes in a blog post discussing our case, the agency simply went ahead and created “a de facto expansion of H-1B.”

Let me digress for a moment on the H-1B lottery and the “oversubscription” issue. Unlike other visas, the fees for H-1B applications are refundable; there is no penalty for oversubscribing. As a consequence, heavy H-1B users, such as the outsourcing firms that supply BigTech companies as well as BigTech companies themselves, always apply for more visas than they really want in order to get close to their target. David North at the Center for Immigration Studies explains the process here. So when you hear in the press and elsewhere that “petitions have outstripped slots yet again by two-to-one,” the numbers are merely a reflection of companies’ trying to game the lottery system. 


PARASITIC ELEMENTS WITHIN OUR SOCIETY



WALKING POINT ON THE ROAD TO RUIN


by Danny Jeffrey
Last night I posted a comment on my FB wall. It was born of my frustration with the American masses, and brought good tidings to none, but said what I had to say and then I went to bed. Couldn't stay there, and now find myself once again with my friend the keyboard, again walking point on the road to ruin upon which this nation has embarked. The following is the comment that I posted and it would not allow me to sleep...

Some years ago, before Black Lives Matter grew so powerful, and our police became afraid to do their jobs; before those many thousands of unaccompanied 'children' flooded across our southern border; before the push from the feds to occupy this nation with terrorists, I warned that there would be civil war in this nation and that the enemies would be militant blacks, militant Latinos, and a host of Muslims from the Middle East.
But...That was in 2010 and few paid attention. All that most could think about was the election and posting photos that showed how brave our military is and how we, the patriots of America, were going to bravely Vote em Out.

Politics vs Rule of Law




"Birthright Citizenship"

We've all heard the stats: currently, only the United States grants birthright citizenship to illegal aliens and 8% of babies born in the US are so-called “anchor babies” born of illegal aliens. In and of itself, this doesn’t constitute a crisis, but, for many of us, it does illustrate how far we’ve strayed from the Constitution. 
Like all babies, “anchor babies” too are sweet and cuddly, and deserving of mother’s love and society’s protection. But automatically conferring citizenship on babies of illegal aliens is an ideologically-motivated perversion not only of internationally accepted legal norms, but, much more importantly, of the Constitution itself.

ONCE UPON...



 . by Robby Bowling

There was a time when there was a balance, be it a delicate one but a balance nonetheless between our lives, the gift, the sacrifice the love & kindness we all share..You might say our HARVEST , one of plenty, kept us humble, thankful & gave us the knowledge, the grit & the strength to learn our lessons & to put them into a very simplistic philosophy....One of live & let live, one of harmony, one with direction, one with meaning, substance & faith....
