Jeff Sessions Greatest Speech


Jeff Sessions, Once More Into the Breach

Just a little while ago, on the Senate floor, Jeff Sessions rose to denounce President Obama’s plan to move forward with implementation of his illegal and unconstitutional amnesty plan. In ringing terms, Sessions called on Congress to act forcefully to block Obama’s usurpation. Here are some excerpts from his remarks:
Mr. Sessions: It’s already starting. There is being rented today a building in Crystal City, Virginia, to house the announced 1,000 workers that will be needed to be hired to process the unlawful executive amnesty that the president has said he intends to execute. The president is already moving forward, he is rushing to impose his immigration views before the Congress can contain or restrain it, before the American people fully understand what is happening, and make it so it can’t be stopped.
His executive orders violate the laws of Congress, the laws that Congress has passed, in order to implement laws he wishes Congress had passed, but Congress has refused to pass. It refused in 2006, 2007, 2010, 2013, 2014. The American people through their Congressional representatives considered these kinds of proposals, they evaluated them, the American people expressed their views on them, and Congress said no. The people have been clear on this issue.
***
Perhaps no other issue defines the gap between the elites in this country and middle Americans who go to work every day, who support our country, pay our taxes and fight our wars. Our people want our laws that are on the books now enforced. And if new laws are needed, they want us to pass new laws to end this lawlessness. But this president rejects the will of the people. His policies nullify the laws that we have, shockingly direct federal agents to ignore the law, ignore their oaths and not enforce it, creating this lawlessness that stains our legal system and our country today.
***
But what I want to say to you is, colleagues, that the president has gone even further than that. He’s gone further than just saying I’m not going to enforce the laws, which he as president, the chief executive officer, is required to do, to execute the laws of the United States faithfully….But he’s moving forward with his immigration agenda, rejected by Congress and the American people. And he’s moving forward in a lot of different ways.
***
So is Congress hopeless, helpless, ineffectual, is it unable to stop this? Absolutely not. Congress has the power to control what the president does. It has the power to control what he spends money on. The president, the executive branch, cannot spend one dime that has not been approved by the United States Congress… So Congress has a responsibility and a duty here. Congress should fund no program, should allow no presidential expenditure that is spent on programs it deems are unworthy. And it absolutely has a responsibility to ensure that this president spends no money to execute policies that are in violation of existing law.
It has a constitutional duty, no matter what members may feel about the substance of the issue–and I have opinions on that. I opposed the president’s substantive position, but as a matter of law, separation of powers and constitutional duty–thunder and lightning!–this Congress should stop the expenditure of federal funds for projects that Congress has rejected….
***
Colleagues, even Secretary Johnson, Secretary of Homeland Security, testifying a few days ago acknowledged that of these four, five million people who are going to be applying for legal status in America through the president’s program, there’s no way their applications are going to be evaluated. If they say they came to the country in 1999, nobody is going to check on that. They’re not going to see if they graduated from some school or had some job somewhere and investigate it. They’re simply going to act on the paperwork they’ve been given. And in many cases…there would not be any face to face meetings. You wouldn’t even go into an office and actually see the person. It would all be submitted by email and documents, which is highly risky, as the experts told us. You really need to see the person because it may not be the person they say they are.
***
So, colleagues, the situation is graver than a lot of people think. … October 28 of this year, the citizenship officer, Mr. Kenneth Polenkis, the president of an association of 12,000 officers, this is what he issued in a statement: “We are still the world’s rubber stamp for entry into the United States, regardless of the ramifications of constant violations of the Immigration and Nationality Act. Whether it is the failure to uphold the public charge laws, the abuse of our asylum procedures, the admission of Islamic radicals or visas for health risk, the taxpayers are being fleeced and public safety endangered on a daily basis.” That’s what Mr. Polenkis said. Has anybody ever called him to testify and lay out these dangers? Certainly not in the United States Senate.
President Obama, when he has his secret meetings with businesses and activist groups, they met all summer, people with their big money and their contributions. He met with them. Did he meet with Mr. Polenkis? No. Did he meet with the head of the I.C.E. Officers Association? No.
***
Mr. Polenkis says: “I write today to warn the general public that this situation is going to get exponentially worse and even more dangerous. … News reports have leaked information to the public of a USCIS measurement contract bid for a surge of printing of 34 million green cards and employment authorization documents to be provided by foreign nationals, a bid that predicts the administration’s promise of executive amnesty.” He goes on to say, “That is why this statement is intended for the public….Immigration agencies are pleading for your help. Don’t let this happen. Express your concern to your Senators and Congressmen before it is too late.”
***
“The attitude of USCIS management”–that’s the political appointees appointed by the president to execute his views of immigration–”is not that the agency serve the American public or the laws of the United States or public safety and nation security, but instead that the agency serves illegal aliens and the attorneys which represent them.”
What a statement. Who is the government supposed to represent? We represent the people of the United States who are lawfully here.
***
The president’s action will beget even more lawlessness in the future. It is a statement to the world, no matter what the law says, you come to America, you get to stay. You’ll not be deported. This is a recipe for disaster. It cannot work. What we need in this country, can achieve if Congress and the president will act, is to create a lawful system, enforce the law, to make it a system that we can be proud of, that’s fairly applied, a system that ends the ability of people to defraud our country and come in unlawfully and to serve the interests of working Americans.
That’s what it’s all about. Are we serving their interests or are we listening to special interests, political groups and activist groups, politicians who think they gain political advantage and certain businesses who want more, cheaper labor? Don’t we represent the vast majority of the people? Isn’t there a national interest, an interest of the American people? Somebody needs to defend that interest. It’s been lost in this process.
It is obvious to anyone who has paid attention that there is somebody defending the interests of the American people, and his name is Jeff Sessions.

Administration Is Ordering Up Fresh Rubber Stamps for 1000 New Amnesty Workers

It’s becoming clear that the Obama bunch has been planning the imperial distribution of work permits to illegal aliens for some time, despite the squeals that Republicans were being obstructionist toward the foreigners languishing in the shadows. In October, the administration began organizing the production of the physical work permits, and now the hiring has begun for the bureaucrats to handle the auto-processing of the foreign lawbreakers.
In the video below, Washington Times reporter Stephen Dinan noted, “Of the thousand or so positions they’ve advertised, only seven of them are actually fraud detection staff, which suggests that less than one percent of these people are going to be actually charged with trying to spot fraud in the millions of applications.”
In other words, the administration is saying, “Welcome, cartels gangsters, generic criminals and jihadists!” Public safety and national security apparently mean nothing to the current regime.

America’s Senator, Jeff Sessions, published a press release on Wednesday to point out the new office building dedicated to rubber stamping illegal alien job thieves:
It has just been discovered today that the Obama Administration is now opening a new USCIS facility in Crystal City, Virginia, for the purpose of immediately implementing the President’s imperial immigration decree. They are in the process of hiring 1,000 full-time staff to quickly approve applications for the President’s illegal amnesty, which will provide work permits, photo IDs, Social Security, and Medicare to illegal immigrants—all benefits rejected by Congress. This action will mean that American workers, their sons, their daughters, their parents, will now have to compete directly for jobs, wages, and benefits with millions of illegal immigrants.
This facility is a clear symbol of the President’s defiance of the American people, their laws, and their Constitution. He is hiring federal employees to carry out a directive that violates the laws Congress has passed in order to foist on the nation laws Congress has repeatedly refused to pass.
The Washington Times put Stephan Dinan’s article on Thursday’s front page:
Homeland Security already hiring 1,000 employees to carry out Obama amnesty, Washington Times, December 3, 2014
Department of Homeland Security officials wasted little time in ramping up for President Obama’s amnesty, posting 1,000 job openings the day after his announcement and announcing it already has space for hundreds of employees at a new location in Arlington, Virginia — an indication that it had laid its plans well before Mr. Obama’s announcement.
And even though Mr. Obama said his policy is temporary, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services is hiring the employees for permanent positions, at salaries of up to $157,000 a year, according to the job postings listed on the official federal jobs website.
“USCIS is taking steps to open a new operational center in Crystal City, a neighborhood in Arlington, Virginia, to accommodate about 1,000 full-time, permanent federal and contract employees in a variety of positions and grade levels,” the agency said in an internal email to employees on Monday. “The initial workload will include cases filed as a result of the executive actions on immigration announced on Nov. 20, 2014.”
A number of the job openings were posted the day after that Nov. 20 announcement, and those postings have already expired, suggesting the agency already has filled some of the slots.
In a statement, USCIS said it was trying to get its operations in order for when it begins to collect applications.
“Increasing staffing will ensure that every case received by USCIS receives a thorough review under our guidelines,” the agency said late Wednesday.
But Ken Palinkas, head of the labor union that represents USCIS employees, said he couldn’t see any way that the agency could hire enough good people in time to process the millions of applications that are expected.
“I can’t see how they could,” he told The Washington Times. “I think what they’re leaning toward is just getting the paperwork done regardless of who does it. You have to vet these people.”
The employees will need to undergo checks, and some will require security clearances, which is an even longer process.
Mr. Palinkas said the large scale of the hiring and the new office space suggests to him that the White House had its plans in place for some time ahead of Mr. Obama’s announcement last month.
“It’s so orchestrated it’s pathetic,” he said.
Sen. Jeff Sessions, an Alabama Republican who has taken the lead in fighting Mr. Obama’s policy, said the new facility in Virginia is “a clear symbol of the president’s defiance of the American people, their laws and their constitution.”
“He is hiring federal employees to carry out a directive that violates the laws Congress has passed in order to foist on the nation laws Congress has repeatedly refused to pass,” Mr. Sessions said in a statement.
Mr. Obama’s program envisions nearly 5 million illegal immigrants would be eligible for “deferred action,” which entails a proactive promise that they won’t be deported, a work permit to allow them to compete for jobs and the ability to get driver’s licenses in most states.
The White House says the program is a recognition of the reality that most of those illegal immigrants won’t ever be deported, and carving them out officially will leave immigration agents free to go after the few serious criminals among the illegal immigrant population.
Louis D. Crocetti Jr., who used to run USCIS’s fraud unit until he retired in 2011, said for the agency to properly ramp up its new policy, hire and train staff would take about a year. That’s far longer than the time frame the Obama administration has talked about.
“I don’t see how they could possibly recruit, hire, screen, go through all the national security background checks and train everyone within six months,” said Mr. Crocetti, who is now principal at the Immigration Integrity group. “That would be a very, very steep challenge, one that could only result in consequences of poorly trained staff.”
Mr. Crocetti said fraud will be a major problem for the new amnesty — though just how big is anyone’s guess, because the administration has turned a blind eye to those warnings, he said.
He said the administration had a chance to test out its policies with the 2012 deportation amnesty Mr. Obama announced for so-called dreamers, of which more than 600,000 have been granted.
That program, known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, has an approval rate of more than 95 percent — an astronomically high percentage for an immigration benefit, according to analysts.
But Mr. Crocetti said the administration has declined to do the kinds of compliance or fraud checks that would determine whether bogus applications are being approved.
“The DACA was a golden opportunity for CIS to build this thing and get it right and iron out the wrinkles and be prepared for that one-day large amnesty program, which is inevitable — and they didn’t do that,” he said. “They didn’t address the fraud.”
He said part of the problem is the very mission of USCIS, which is tasked with doling out immigration benefits. Senior officials at the agency judge it based on approvals, so it’s “not helpful” if the fraud detection unit comes out with assessments showing problems in some immigration programs.
“There is an internal conflict of interest where you’ve got a benefit agency that has to give the benefits to the people, but at the same time they’re vulnerable if they start showing how much fraud there is, because what about the fraud they’re not catching?” he said.
He said it’s been “years” since a fraud assessment was completed. He recalled one fight with senior officials during his time at the agency when he detected a 21 percent fraud rate in immigration petitions related to marriage — only to see higher-ups question his methodology, scuttling the report’s release.
On Tuesday, while testifying to Congress, Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson acknowledged that fraud was a concern.
“Fraudulent applications have the potential to undermine the whole process,” he told the House Committee on Homeland Security. “In the planning for the implementation, I want to be sure that we take a hard look at best practices to avoid fraudulent applications, fraudulent misuse of the program. That’s a priority of mine.”
Of the 1,000 new jobs USCIS has advertised for, seven are designated as part of the fraud-detection unit. Their pay ranges from $75,621 a year to $138,136 a year, according to the job postings.
Immigration services officers fresh out of school are slated to make as little as $34,415, while top-level supervisors will make up to $157,100 a year. The postings said there are “many vacancies” for those high-level jobs.

America’s Senator Jeff Sessions Urges GOP to Defund the Lawless Amnesty

Senator Sessions continues to recommend Congress use its power of the purse to knock back Obama’s executive amnesty to give work permits to millions of illegal aliens.
Powerful forces from Silicon Valley to big agriculture have spent millions of dollars to increase the number of cheap foreign workers to replace citizens. Senator Sessions has fought these wealthy “Masters of the Universe” for years to protect American jobs from foreign encroachment.
Now Sessions is doing all he can to get weak-kneed Republicans to stand strong against the lawless administration.
Sessions: Congress Must Deny Funding for Obama’s Illegal Amnesty and Work Authorization, December 2, 2014
WASHINGTON—U.S. Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL), Ranking Member of the Senate Budget Committee and a senior member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, issued the following comments today in response to the current plan being floated in the House of Representatives regarding the President’s unconstitutional amnesty:
“The Chairman of the Republican Party made a promise to America on executive amnesty: ‘We can’t allow it to happen and we won’t let it happen… everything we can do to stop it we will.’
Unfortunately, the plan now being circulated in the House fails to meet that test. The executive amnesty language is substantially weaker than the language the House adopted this summer, and does not reject the central tenets of the President’s plan: work permits, Social Security, and Medicare to 5 million illegal immigrants—reducing wages, jobs, and benefits for Americans.
Congress considered and rejected these changes to immigration law in 2006, 2007, 2010, 2013, and 2014. The President’s action erases the laws Congress has passed in order to implement laws Congress has refused to pass.
Now the President demands Congress fund his imperial decree and declare its own irrelevance.
That is why Congress must respond to the President’s unlawful action by funding the government but not funding illegal amnesty. This is a perfectly sound and routine application of congressional authority. In fact, the nonpartisan Congressional Research Service reports that last year’s omnibus spending bill included 16 such funding restrictions on fee-based programs.
Such a plan would put the focus where it belongs: on Senate Democrats. They are the ones who should be made to choose sides—save Obama’s amnesty or save Americans’ jobs and borders.
Polling shows voters believe that Americans should get preference for available jobs by almost a 10-1 margin. Republicans should not be timid or apologetic, but mount a bold defense of struggling Americans.
Billions of dollars and countless hours have been spent advocating immigration policies that help everyone but the actual citizens of this country. Who will be their voice, if not us?”
BACKGROUND:
Since taking office, President Obama has engaged in a sustained and calculated campaign to dismantle the immigration laws of the United States. As his own former ICE Director, John Sandweg, explained: “if you’re a run-of-the-mill immigrant living here illegally, your odds of getting deported are close to zero.” ICE officers report that their agency caters to special interests and open borders activists, while they are ordered to ignore their oaths and the laws of the United States.
Additionally, since the year 2000, the U.S. has issued nearly 30 million lawful visas for permanent immigrants or temporary guest workers. As reported by the Pew Research Center, the total number of immigrants in the U.S. has reached a record 41.3 million. The share of the U.S. population that was born in another country, per the Census Bureau, has quadrupled.
According to Harvard labor economist Dr. George Borjas, current high immigration rates result in a $402 billion annual wage loss for American workers.

Obama’s Top Ten Lies about Amnesty

There’s nothing like a good, thorough list to analyze a policy position, and the ever thoughtful Daniel Horowitz has a fine one for the President’s amnesty speech (text) on Thursday.
Top 10 Lies from Obama’s Nullification Speech, By Daniel Horowitz, Conservative Review, November 21, 2014
“The one [a president] can confer no privileges whatever; the other [the king] can make denizens of aliens, noblemen of commoners; can erect corporations with all the rights incident to corporate bodies.”
– Alexander Hamilton in Federalist 69
Lie #1: Every President has Taken Executive Action on Immigration: No other president has ever issued an amnesty of anywhere near this scope, created it out of thin air, or built it upon a prior executive action instead of a statute. And in the case of President Eisenhower, his executive action was to deport 80,000 illegal immigrants.
Lie #2: Illegal Immigrant Crossings are Down: Actually, this is the third straight year that border crossings have gone up, not to mention the entirely new wave from Central America.
Lie #3: It does not grant citizenship or the right to stay here permanently: Under the royal edict, the work permits can be renewed every three years, and most likely, they will be renewed at the same 99.5% acceptance rate as DACA applications.  And once they get Social Security cards, they are going nowhere.  So yes, this is permanent. And yes, they will be able to get green cards, which puts them on an automatic path to citizenship: “we are reducing the time that families are separated while obtaining their green cards.  Undocumented immigrants who are immediate relatives of lawful permanent residents or sons or daughters of US citizens can apply to get a waiver if a visa is available.”
Lie #4: Only 5 Million: Make no mistake about it.  Obama’s illegal amnesty will not just apply to 5 million individuals.  It will apply by default to all 12-20 million illegals in the country as well as the millions more who will now come here to enjoy the permanent cessation of borders and sovereignty.  Given the numerous options for people to become eligible for amnesty, ICE and CPB will be restricted from enforcing the law against anyone because each individual has to be afforded the opportunity to present themselves and apply for status.  There is no way those who were here for less than 5 years will be deported and there’s no way the new people rushing the border and overstaying their visas will be repatriated.
Lie #5: Deport Felons: Obama claims he is going to focus on deporting felons. Yet, he has done the opposite.  36,000 convicted criminal aliens were released last year, 80,000 criminal aliens encountered by ICE weren’t even placed into deportation proceedings, 167,000 criminal aliens who were ordered deported are still at large, 341,000 criminal aliens released by ICE without deportation orders are known to be free and at large in the US.  Again, this is cessation of deportations for everyone. They are leaving no illegal behind.
Lie #6: Don’t deport families: Obama is playing the family card. It works like this: people are encouraged to come here illegally, Obama grants them amnesty, then their relatives all get to come, even though they would otherwise be ineligible under public charge laws.  Yet, at the same time, because the bureaucracy will be flooded with applications of illegals, and those are the applications that will be prioritized, those families who came here legally will have to wait longer to be united. There is no longer an incentive to enter the legal immigration process.
Lie #7: They have to pay taxes to stay: Aside from the absurd notion that they would turn someone away for not paying taxes, almost every one of these illegal immigrants lacks a high enough income to incur a net positive tax liability.  Hence, by paying taxes, he actually means they will collect refundable tax credits!
Lie #8: Background Checks: Just the thought of a criminal background check of people coming from the third world on a lawless program is a joke.  But the reality is that Obama has already done this with DACA, and 99.5% of applications were approved, including those of criminals.
Lie #9: Cracking Down on Illegal Immigration at the Border: Obama promises to beef up resources at the border.  But as we’ve seen over the past few years, what good are more agents if they are explicitly intimidated into turning a blind eye.  Moreover, there is no promise to build a fence or implement a visa tracking system, so any talk of enforcement is an insult to our intelligence.  Moreover, he is unilaterally abolishing the Secure Communities program, the only successful interior enforcement program left after he abolished 287g state-federal cooperation in 2012.  At a time when we are facing threats from Islamic terror and deadly diseases, this invitation to the world will present a security nightmare.
Lie #10: Scripture tells us, we shall not oppress a stranger: It’s great to see him quoting the Bible for once, but nice try.  There are different variations of this verse throughout the Bible, but each one uses the Hebrew word “Ger” to describe what Obama translates as “stranger.”  A Ger is a convert to Judaism.  The commandment was not referring to people who illegally migrate to a nation state.  And more importantly, it is downright offensive to Americans to insinuate that not granting them benefits is tantamount to oppression, especially given the fact that they have been the biggest recipients of our generous legal system.  Moreover, if there is oppression taking place it is to the American taxpayer and worker and those who suffer from gangs like MS-13.

 Obama’s Amnesty Magnet Will Incite More Illegal Crossings

Ronald S. Colburn, a retired Deputy Chief of the US Border Patrol, has some strong opinions about the looming amnesty and how it will affect the agents’ ability to do their job of protecting the nation.

RONALD COLBURN: I absolutely believe it will make the situation much much worse. I see the President is sprinting toward a precipice, ready to go off the cliff, except he has the American people tethered on a rope and taking us down with him.
First, do no harm. When it comes to comprehensive immigration reform, it’s better to have no reform than to have bad reform. I lived though the immigration reform and control act of ‘86; I saw the mistakes made then. In 2003, when I was assigned to the White House as the director for law enforcement I advised both the White House, the Bush administration and Congress, that it would be a bad idea to repeat what we experienced through the previous amnesty program. This should not be about amnesty, this places the Border Patrol agents at much greater danger and they probably have the most dangerous law enforcement job in America.
GRETCHEN CARLSON: You have seen some buses coming through. What do they say?
COLBURN: Amnestia. The placards that you see for destination for a Greyhound bus that say “destination New York City,” “destination Chicago” in Mexico it has been videotaped showing buses en route to the border area from central Mexico saying Amnestia — amnesty. So it’s a theoretical belief in entitlement that Central Americans, South Americans, those from the Caribbean, Eastern Europe and Asia believe that if they can get in, they will get a pass by this president, while those who obey the law and wait their turn to lawfully enter will be pushed aside for those illegals.
CARLSON: Do you now assume that people will be flying fast as they can to the border?
COLBURN: They already are. They’re on their way, I guarantee. I tell you right now, in speaking with Border Patrol agents in just the last couple of days, they are really preparing themselves for a huge influx of amnesty-intended beneficiaries…. This message potentially tonight could really open the valves.
So anyway, what is the job of the Border Patrol in the new post-amnesty era? Hand out milk and cookies to cartel thugs as they cross into the southwest? Rescue aliens who run out of water in the desert?

Will the Border Patrol be allowed to arrest invading foreigners at all? Not that they have been permitted to do much enforcement in the last while.

America's Senator, Jeff Sessions, Says the Administration Won't Enforce Immigration Laws Now on the Books

Senator Sessions appeared on Fox News Thursday night to lay out strategy to defend the integrity of Congress and the Constitutional separation of powers, which are threatened by Obama’s long-pledged amnesty for millions of foreign lawbreakers.
In answer to Megyn Kelly’s question about a possible impeachment of the would-be king, Sessions answered,
“We have plenty of tools and we have to use every one of them. Look, the American people have pleaded with congress and presidents for 30 years — they’ve asked pleaded and demanded, really, a lawful system of immigration that serves the national interest. President Obama is decimating law enforcement in a host of ways; this is just one of them.”
Sessions observed also that “People who supported the Gang of Eight bill, Senator McCain and others, have condemned roundly the President’s executive amnesty proposal. He pleaded with the President not to do it and others have said the same thing.”
Below, the Gang of Eight senators, who wrote their amnesty bill behind closed doors.
Kelly spouted the amnesty talking point that the Senate bill provided increased enforcement along with a path to citizenship for millions of foreigners, to which Sessions responded:
“It would double the number of workers coming into the country to take jobs. It would have gone from 10 million people getting permanent legal status in America over the next 10 years to 30 and would not be an effective enforcement tool as we demonstrated and that’s why the House said it was dead on arrival when it arrived over there. It did not do the job. The talking points they put out were good and sounded wonderful, but when you read the bill, it did not do what they promised.
So we’ve got to write a bill that will work. Yes, we can do that, but the biggest part of the problem is that they won’t enforce the laws that are on the books. They won’t do the job now. We’ve got a lot of laws that simply are not being enforced, encouraging more and more people to come unlawfully, putting extreme pressure on working Americans, whose wages are down and whose employment prospects are down.”
(See Sessions’ Ten Questions for the Gang of Eight from 2013 for a reminder of what a terrible piece of legislation the bill was.)
Part of the discussion centered on a letter from several concerned Republican senators to current Majority Leader Harry Reid, which follows:
Dear Leader Reid:
We write to express our alarm with President Obama’s announced intention to take unilateral executive action by the end of this year to lawlessly grant amnesty to immigrants who have entered the country illegally.  The Supreme Court has recognized that “over no conceivable subject is the power of Congress more complete” than its power over immigration.  Therefore, President Obama will be exercising powers properly belonging to Congress if he makes good on his threat.  This will create a constitutional crisis that demands action by Congress to restore the separation of powers.
As majority leader of the Senate, you have the responsibility of not only representing the voters of your State, but also of protecting the Constitution through vigilant exercise of the checks and balances provided under the Constitution.  Therefore, we write to offer our full assistance in ensuring expeditious Senate debate and passage for a measure that preserves the power of Congress by blocking any action the President may take to violate the Constitution and unilaterally grant amnesty; however, should you decline to defend the Senate and the Constitution from executive overreach, the undersigned Senators will use all procedural means necessary to return the Senate’s focus during the lame duck session to resolving the constitutional crisis created by President Obama’s lawless amnesty.
Sincerely,
Ted Cruz (R-Texas)
David Vitter (R-La.)
Mike Crapo (R-Idaho)
Mike Lee (R-Utah)
Pat Roberts (R-Kan.)
Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.)

Mental Cleansing of White American Youth


Most folks may not yet know about a coming program that cost many millions of dollars to develop.  It has been created by MTV and Viacom. It talks about removing “White bias” and offers  To CLEANSE!

If you’ve read about “Look Different” or heard about it! It seems to be an incredibly well researched program that explains to America that Bias may and does exist. Bias by Whites, especially youth, are indicated to exist toward many minorities like Black and Brown skinned individuals. It also points out bias against Gays, Transgender and other minority social beliefs. “Look Different” may also point out some bias with minority or majority Religious beliefs.

 To do this MTV has contacted and enlisted related groups in assisting them to discover these Biases. There has been some identification and very tough questions about many of these groups representing the communities who reportedly suffer under these biases.

A short list of very left leaning adviser organizations that Viacom and MTV thought was best to have as they plan to Cleanse your children are:
CAIR (A political Islamic organization), La Raza (A political Hispanic organization),
GLAAD (A Gay organization), NAACP (A well respected Black organization.) The Kirwan Institute Funded by the Ford Foundations and Others. These are all very left leaning and some socialistic trending organizations. One was watched by the FBI as a Terror subsidiary at some point in the past. This Author would advise you research this plan and its sponsors carefully, It appears very liberally Biased!

 What is important is Viacom, MTV and  these group’s focus seems to hold a belief that those creating or holding biases are predominantly “White”, conservative young folks.” And, again by my own referential logic, their parents!  The Study seems to identify these young people as the ones that need polite interrogation then “Cleansing week long!” (If that’s incorrect, it’s probably just my misdirected Bias and I ask for forgiveness. But please don’t “Cleanse” me.”)   

In this presentation of “Look Different” it seems that the stated biases being held by folks are against Gay and Transgender, Brown and Black colors, some religious beliefs and finally perhaps Liberal Thought itself.  In order to correct these biases the proposed recommendation seems to be identifying white folks with these “Biases” and then “Cleanse them.” A week Long Cleansing! Meaning, I suppose, a Wiping away or getting rid a bias once exposed.

My question is: Has the producers of this program really thought through the possible implications? My far less researched premise is: All people have Biases of some sort. These groups that contributed to “Look Different” probably had very strong biases. For example Liberal and Conservative thoughts are both biased. The producers are definitively Liberal. That is by any definition “Biased.”

America today, as compared to racial and sectarian violence throughout the Middle East, Africa, and part of Europe, has far less damaging biases than most other countries. America did not address the greatest injustice against the Black race quickly enough. That was the great failing in our Constitution.

 I do want to explain a slightly differing view. My humble view!

ALL PEOPLE HAVE BIASES!  The liberal groups above definitely have political Bias! However, we have fine and caring “Law Makers” that strive against destructive divisional biases successfully. We have democratically elected representative groups in cities and states defending and proposing changes politically to create a fairer society. Those groups doing that by their very action display BIAS! Is that bad? Isn’t it choice?

There may be unjust BIAS. However, that is a matter for “Legal Rendering” in my humble and biased opinion. Not for “CLEANSING!   That term is in itself troubling! What is also troubling is these groups want to push their Bias onto Children and Young adults.

With all due respect Viacom and MTV have biases. Biases are differing beliefs. It is difficult to socially decide which is right or wrong. Was it right for the white settler to have mistreated the red skinned brothers who were here first? NO! Was it right for plantation owners some of whom helped write the Constitution to have slaves? NO! Was it right for the North African Muslim Tribes to round up those Black tribesmen in Africa and sell them? No! Is it right for women under Sharia Law not to have basic freedoms? NO! Was it right for mostly White immigrants to move across the southern half of America? Maybe!  Was it right before that for the Spanish and Portuguese conquerors to take over most of South America at the disadvantage and possible extermination of some indigenous tribes? Maybe. Is it wrong for a liberal group of advocates to want to promote Liberal Bias by “Cleansing? Yes! Shouldn’t legally elected representative and legal scholars determine that? YES!

 My point is, history is history. Today, America is truly a melting pot and we are a dispirit group of cultures that do get along under a “Rule of Law” far better than Bias cleansing or others. We don’t allow Bias, or fights against Bias, to violate Law!  Law is better than Cleansing. If we decide “Socially” to pursue agendas that point out division and then try to CLEANSE, isn’t that condemning and blaming in violation of our constitutionally structured protections?

Threat of lynching is bad. Threat of retaliation for Bias is just as bad!  What’s next if your mental CLEANSING doesn’t work? More Social persecution for biases or, Maybe a Russian type Gulag or a Mao fashioned re-education camp? Extremes do happen.

Arguing who was right or wrong in history is the work of our “Laws and Elections” not for select groups representing factions to promote change with an end result of CLEANSING!  At least that’s my humble “BIAS”.

Silk Road: A Changing World


Written June 2014

This project has been a theory printed and discussed for several years by The Nation, The Strategic Culture Foundation, Huffington Post, and additional sources, even mildly in the New York Times. On May 20th and 21st of 2014 a private meeting occurred between Vladimir Putin and Xi Jinping in Shanghai, China. And now, this hypothesis seems to be reality! The largest civilization transformation project on Earth is now drawing near. As a result of this historic meeting, the Silk Road Project will go forward.

The Silk Road Economic Belt, Silk Road Maritime Expansion and Eurasian Economic Union to include countries as far west as Germany and Brazil is a real probability!  In this new reality, America seems somewhat excluded and its currency will not be predominant and at the very least frowned upon. The probable loss of trade and purchases away from the US Dollar may well be staggering to its value! Our international Wall Street banks, following the offshore positioning of our 1% rich of our nation as well as international industries, are now doing most of their business in other parts of the world as well as in other currencies.  However, America with very little in-country manufacturing will suffer greatly as its currency devalues. Only our agricultural sector, hard to relocate, will remain to profit and benefit. Our military will be used in hidden agendas to profit a few away from America’s greater good. 

Few people realize the total disregard that other Nations may have for this American President. Those countries know his ambition is to serve himself politically at the expense and possible harm of our once great country. Some countries use him and the military he controls for their good at American tax payer expense! In response, the BRICS countries (Brazil, Russia India, China and S. Africa), along with smaller nations, will join to revitalize the G-20 while discarding the G-7 controlled largely by America and its few allies. That change may occur relatively soon! China, Russia, Brazil and India are drivers of this projects creation and expansion that will transform a substantial part of this world’s future commercial, political, physical, and economic direction.
The new "Silk Road Economic Belt, the Silk Road Maritime expansion" and "Eurasian Economic Union will be built." These ambitious world-changing plans seem to be at the exclusion of this American country and President. This new policy of Russia and China leaders seems to resist ceding any control to America and other non- participating governments apart from the expansion.

The BRICS Nations as well as the Shanghai Cooperation organization (SCO) are already setting forth plans for building the Asian and Eastern European areas into a consolidated power including massive Space technology to include immediate mining of the moon for rare minerals. Its’ other priority is modernized industrial capabilities and economies that in some ways reflect America’s great capitalistic past of the early and middle 1900’s. This group is using our capitalistic history as their guidebook even as we slide into their old forms of Socialism.

Today, they have together equaled or surpassed our base capabilities in space. The disassembly of NASA and our economic and industrial demise allowed by this president allows political weakness to block our transformation back to competitive capitalism that we need badly.  China and Russia have forged ahead.
China will reportedly have first tier access to the world’s largest Siberian mineral resources of oil, gas, platinum, palladium, gold and silver and rare earth materials plus much more. Russia reportedly will have access to industrial capabilities and technologies from China and India plus outlying areas of control. Silk Road Economic belt areas will receive assistance for modernizing old manufacturing and building new. These countries are moving in opposition to this American President who has stopped all real capabilities in American manufacturing growth. In effect, America may well become the poor large socialistic nation China used to be as they create with
Russia and others their new form capitalism that once we were the champion. 

This new consortium already plans a moon base for mining and a real space vehicle constructed on the moon without drawbacks of gravity. Putin and Xi Jinping once having control of the new G20 will control space as well. They will lead Asian areas and have great sway in parts of the West including a willing Germany. They will out-produce America which is not hard considering this President's actions of dismembering what’s remaining of America's manufacturing industry with EPA regulation and political hostility.

We have lost the secrets of Capitalism and are committing our disappearing middle class to third world status.  We are becoming what China and Russia used to be. They are becoming what we once were. With shared military resources they arguably become superior to ours for any territorial disputes.

The Sunni Sharia groups who president Obama seemed to favor in the past will be far less willing to challenge the new BRICS consortium led by China and Russia. They will instead try to take over America, parts of Western Europe and South America where they see weaker resolve. 

The New Future
Note: My thanks to The Diplomat and Strategic Alliance for a map and some excellent descriptive verbiage. 
According to the map, the land-based “New Silk Road” will begin in China before stretching west through Lanzhou (Gansu province), Urumqi (Xinjiang), and Khorgas (Xinjiang), which is near the border with Kazakhstan. The Silk Road then runs southwest from Central Asia to northern Iran before swinging west through Iraq, Syria, and Turkey. From Istanbul, the Silk Road crosses the Bosporus Strait and heads northwest through Europe, including Bulgaria, Romania, the Czech Republic, and Germany. Reaching Duisburg in Germany, it swings north to Rotterdam in the Netherlands. From Rotterdam, the path runs south to Venice, Italy — where it meets up with the equally ambitious Maritime Silk Road.

The Maritime Silk Road will begin in Quanzhou in Fujian province, and also hit Guangzhou (Guangdong pronvince), Beihai (Guangxi), and Haikou (Hainan) before heading south to the Malacca Strait. From Kuala Lumpur, the Maritime Silk Road heads to Kolkata, India then crosses the rest of the Indian Ocean to Nairobi, Kenya (the Xinhua map does not include a stop in Sri Lanka, despite indications in February that the island country would be a part of the Maritime Silk Road). From Nairobi, the Maritime Silk Road goes north around the Horn of Africa and moves through the Red Sea into the Mediterranean, with a stop in Athens before meeting the land-based Silk Road in Venice.





What does this mean? It means with the continued socialization of America by this president we have lost our economic direction and right to lead. Federal government is out of control. China, Russia and India have sufficient American debt to destroy our economy. They probably won't and don't need to use it. President Obama is destroying our will to be capitalists. His disregard for law or restrictions under our Constitution is now clear. He has tested our Constitution arguably in the 1st Amendment, 2nd Amendment and 4th Amendment. To be fair the last president restricted the 4th as well. We have been badly led to compete.

There are additional dangers for the Silk Road operation that must be resolved for all parties. Mullah Muhammad Omar is in Qatar.  Mullah Omar is the most successful Leader/General in the history of Muslim lore since Salah ad Din (Saladin) in 1137 AD. Mullah Omar has been responsible for killing more American soldiers as leader of the Taliban and the war chief to Bin laden than any other since the Vietnam War! He has claim to much of the territory in “Silk Road.”President Obama owes the world to quit arming Sunni groups of any kind! These groups he arms will attack “Silk Road” as well.  

In order for America to move forward to be competitive: America has the greatest Agricultural capability on Earth even though badly restrained by this Government. Set it free, grow unlimited and export.  

America must regain the manufacturing base it once had from 1870 through the 1960’s. Failure to regain that will create a slow slide already begun with the last president and especially this president. We must stop this Federal Government singular rule policy and be again openly competitive and wholly “Capitalistic” unrestrained by federal government rules! Or America is doomed to be in a long cycle depression like Russia under a Stalin or a China under a Mao if we don’t.

China and Russia today are moving to what we were and what we invented. We must change Washington and their Socialistic rule of the States now or be lost along with future generations of our children!

The Florida Sharia Ban - Law SB-58



Tabled and defeated on May 3rd
  
Florida Bill SB-58 “American Law for American Courts” died a procedural death by vote of united Senate Democrats. The two thirds majority required for passage was not reached. The vote was 25 to 14. There was an additional group railing against the Ban and its companion Bill HB-351. The Council of American Islamic Relations (CAIR), A Sunni Group, and ACLU were very heavily involved against this Bill. Republicans and groups favoring The Sharia Ban law failed when Republican Senator Nancy Detert mysteriously failed to vote.

It was a historic dichotomy to see the ACLU and Democrats who has championed women’s rights for over a century fight for and vote in-mass to allow Sharia Law.

Is Sharia compatible with western law? The answer is not yet.
Hence, we have the immediate creation of Special Sharia Councils and Patrols throughout the western world where Sharia was introduced. Sharia is a government religion. Meaning law trumps government.

In the time before America, the western world and Muslim caliphates had massive wars. After the wars the Western World, having had overpowering religions like Catholicism, learned its lessons and created government that sat in front of and had precedence over religion. Religion, weakened as a ruling force was pushed back. The Islamic States have not yet evolved! Hence Sharia Laws rule the population and their actions. That’s why President Morsi, a Sunni, immediately introduced strong Sharia Law. It is another way of controlling and excusing government excesses. The Taliban uses these rules to control.  Some Sects are somewhat more benign and secular. However, many Shiite and Wahhab Sunni sects have maintained their religion as driving components of government. .    

David D. Kirkpatrick NY. Times reported from Cairo on March 14, 2013 about the election and strict Sharia Law introduced by the new Sunni President Morsi. Egyptian women having had more freedom under Mubarak were angry. Ms. Sharkawy President Morsi’s political advisor asked while brushing off a question of marital rape “Is this a big problem we have?” Egyptian women responded quickly “This is an example of their thinking wives said. This should be kept at home under protection of the family. A husband is entitled to have sex with his wife anytime he wants. There is no such thing as marital Rape.”  Under Sharia Law, it should be pointed out the husband decides if a woman can travel from the house or uses birth control. 

In a 2010 National Geographic issue Tahira Shahid Khan, a professor at the Aga Khan University writing about Islamic law, “Chain to Custom;” said honor killings are perpetrated for a wide range of offenses, marital infidelity, pre-marital sex, flirting, or even failing to serve a meal on time.

Very recently the world watched English TV with a soldier being beheaded by a young Muslim with a meat cleaver proclaiming Muslim Sharia faith justified this killing.
Tony Blair, former Prime Minister said in The Daily Mail June 2nd 2013.  “The Government should be honest and admit there is a problem within Islam and implored officials to acknowledge radical Ideology is profound and dangerous.” He meant Sharia Law.  
 
Ayaan Hirsi Ali  is the founder of the AHA Foundation and celebrated by TIME magazine as one of the 100 most influential people on Earth. She is currently a Fellow at the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard to name just a few of her accomplishments. Her incredible background gives her rare insights to Sharia and Islam. She was Muslim. Hersi Ali interviewed by The London Evening Standard characterized Islam as “the new Facism” and believes it is the most negative climate for women.  When you believe in forced genital cutting on women it is cruel and painful. Women have no real freedom she writes. In Reason magazine, discussing this problem Ali said, “It’s not Radical Islam but, Islam.”
Is the USA ready? No!.
