illegals (12)

Illegal immigrants seem to care for nothing other than they want to stay in  America; even as ‘ILLEGAL’ immigrants.

When I identify an ‘ILLEGAL’ immigrant, I am saying you are ‘ILLEGAL’ when you are not a citizen of the USA,  do not hold a ‘legal’ Green Card, etc.

When an ‘ILLEGAL’ immigrant comes to America, the first activity is to ‘PURCHASE OR STEAL’ an identity for his/her to stay. This identity will likely be a ‘FORGED’ Social Security, Driver’s License, and/or any other personal identity.  That acceptance and use of the ‘illegal’ document makes the ‘ILLEGAL’ immigrant a ‘CRIMINAL’.

Next for  ‘ILLEGAL’ immigrants may likely be seeking government assistance of government welfare programs to provide these ‘illegals’ with a comfortable home including ‘all’ utilities, food for his/her/their daily meals, all healthcare to include doctor visits, hospitalization, and prescribed drugs for the entire family.  We must not forget to add adequate money for cigarette, beer, miscellaneous money, and perhaps, illegal drugs.  Oh, what a deal!  For many, it is a free ride; at the cost of American taxpayers.

News reports reveal  that ‘Immigration’ legislation cost ‘Trillions of dollars’ to our already $19 Trillion of National Debt.

Americans must come first; before ‘illegals’ get ‘anything’.  Americans welcome ‘Legal immigration’, but oppose ‘Illegal immigration’. 

‘Illegal immigration’ is not broken.  Do not swallow that ‘claim’ from anyone.  President Obama, Capitol Hill Democrats, and a few RINO Republicans are willing to giveaway anything and everything to ‘illegals’ in turn for a political ‘vote’.  Democrat registration will flourish from another legislated form of hidden ‘Amnesty’ while Republican registration will decline.

And, American citizens, legal immigrants, or illegal immigrants must not forget the more than 600,000 Americans who have given their lives in protecting our USA, our Constitution, and our American flag; and millions of Americans have serve our precious nation in protecting our nation.

Do now allow ‘ILLEGAL’ immigrants, left-wing, give-away Democrats, the ‘Main-stream’ Medias. etc. to alter your mind allowing more of an ‘ILLEGAL’ invasion to damage of destroy our USA.

America was built on, by, and for ‘legal’ immigrants; not by unknown ‘illegal’ invasion.

Obama is clearly in rebellion against Article 2 Section 3 “…shall take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed…” and Article 4 Section 4 “…shall protect each (state) against Invasion…”   The USA is being overthrown and destroyed by an alien locust army invasion that is funded by progressive rebellion within government!   Obama freely does this because Congress and SCOTUS are likewise betraying allegiance and Constitution!   Treason is a capital crime!

 

Every individual within government except Obama is allegiance bound to defend the Constitution "without any reservation or purpose of evasion, against any enemy (of it)” (2nd oath)! Obama’s allegiance (Article 2-1) “…to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution…” says BEST, NOT, aid & abet lawlessness and invasions!

 

Congress doesn’t have the power to cede anything or join enemies! Likewise no agency is empowered to assume powers not granted by the Constitution! The Constitution is Supreme Law to the letter and definition of each word, wherein anything to the contrary is “notwithstanding” (Article 6)!   It’s the highest English language ratified USA covenant!  Change requires ratified Amendment by the States!!

 

Article 1 Sections1&2&3 clearly puts ALL legislative powers in congress, including impeachment trial, judgment, and punishment thereon... NOT THE JUDICIARY!

 

Article 3 Section 1 clearly puts establishment of courts in the hands of legislators along with the "shall hold their offices during good behavior…”. The words “insurrection” (open opposition to Constitutional authority), “rebellion (against the Constitution), and Amendment 14-3&4 (SHALL HOLD NO U.S. OFFICE if “shall have engaged” in insurrection or rebellion)” or Article 3-3 TREASON – “(war against or) …adhering to (Constitution) Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort…” ARE SUPREME NON-NEGOTIABLE LAWS!

 

Congressional speakers ARE BETRAYING their solemn oath of allegiance and duty to maintain order beginning with supporting and defending the Constitution!  If they can’t reach a 100% majority to defend the Constitution, their duty mandates identifying congresspersons unwilling to defend, and remove them from office according to Amendment 14-3&4, WITHOUT ANY RESERVATION!   They won’t even demand a 2/3 majority to defend!

 

Because any official’s Constitutional violation affects ALL CITIZENS, any acting against it “…shall nevertheless be liable… and subject to Indictment, Trial, Judgment and Punishment, according to Law” Article 1-3) (…in every court in the land BY JURY, Article 6 & Article 3-2).”    None are exempt from arrest for “treason or felony” during session or recess (Article 1-6).   It’s time for the people to lay their wrath upon the lawless and traitors.    Affordable local courts are bound by Supreme Law that is as simple and blunt as “No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens… (14-1)”, etc.!   THINK, no lesser law or ruling has ANY standing against it!!!

 

The quoted law is SUPREME LAW directly from the Constitution, not my or anyone else’s opinion!

AN OPEN LETTER TO AMERICAN BUSINESS OWNERS

OPEN LETTER TO AMERICAN BUSINESS OWNERS

Imagine that your business is like your child. Not a big stretch, is it?  What if your child were extremely ill and in need of a special procedure to save her?  You have the option of choosing a pediatrician unknown to you but are assured that he is able to perform the procedure and will do it for a lesser price, as he is not a specialist; or you may choose a seasoned surgeon who has performed the required procedure successfully thousands of times. Of course, his services will cost a bit more, but you will have the peace of mind knowing that your child is in the best, most experienced hands.

 When you choose the specialist to save your child, the tried and true option, would you be concerned that some might call you prejudice against pediatricians?  I seriously doubt it. Would you even hear them?  I rather think your focus would be on the health and continuing life of your child; which is right where your attention and concern should be.

Now, change the metaphor. Your child is your business. The pediatrician is an illegal alien, the newest recipient of amnesty, and the specialist is an established American citizen. Now that President Obama has flexed his Executive Order muscle, he wants to cram the new “pediatric work force” down your throats. Or, to put it more nicely, he expects you to jump at the chance to hire cheaper workers and ignore our American people who are in desperate need of work; those who honor our country and its laws, and want to work to improve their lives and keep our country strong. 

He certainly has set a good (?) stage for you: Obamacare has become intrusive in your business decisions, the EPA is hampering growth, and taxes are prohibitive. Add to that the progressives’ widespread attitude, their incessant name-calling and finger-pointing at those who don’t readily accept the President’s demands. In addition, we are now dealing with an incendiary condition in the racial/social justice arena where nerves are raw and the White House is fanning the flames via Al Sharpton and Eric Holder.

For those of you who DID build your company, I implore you to follow the American Dream by hiring (LEGAL) American. Initially it may cut into your bottom line just a bit, but you will be contributing to the strength of our way of life as well as preserving our God-given right to pursue our happiness. You are now in control of your destiny, as you have always been. To the extent you are able, ignore the “discrimination” slings and arrows you will suffer from the current administration; resist the “hire-an-immigrant-incentives” that inevitably will be waved under your nose.

You may not wear camouflage to work, but have no doubt that you are now our homeland’s front line of defense in America’s fight to survive. We consumers will be here to support you.

Obama- The American TIGER

Sadly, today Obama made America into a PAPER tiger.

Just like when Obama usually voted present while in the Illinois State House he chose to vote present today. Also, after Kerry stated how bad it was and how action must be taken now the President  said we can wait a couple of weeks. Then he and Biden went out and played golf. How important those poor souls must feel in Syria and how they must now realize how many Americans feel too. Very disappointed and sad about our Leader. Prepared to give an order, but doesn't, critical response needed, but delay, doesn't need approval, but will wait for it.  

After saying there was a red line and then blinking. While Syria is not a direct threat, but a moral responsibility as a world super power to stop mass murder weights on our country.

The UN, where we pay 25% of the base budget is a worthless, spy den where many of the members oppose the US at every turn. Our self interest, protection and our Constitution are the only things that matter, not the UN.

The issue now is that Iran, Muslim terrorists, N. Korea, Chinese and Russia will see a paper tiger. After drawing a line and doing nothing with Iran and now Syria what can the world do without recourse from the US? Iran is building nuclear weapons, China takes technology, spies, builds the military ASAP and manipulates currency to maintain a trade advantage, terrorists kill America soldiers and others without over whelming reaction from the US, we tolerate open hostile teachings within our border by Muslim activists , we tolerate the same from illegals and leave our borders open, grant asylum to Mexicans while denying the same to German home school parents and their children.

Our Congress and President will have weekend cookouts, the President will travel overseas and nothing happens. Our Congress takes no action while the war on coal and many aspects of America continue to be waged by Obama, much less what happens in Syria.

AMNESTY SHOULD HAVE ENDED with the FACT that hundreds of millions of HONEST hard working aliens with every conceivable talent and background WANT TO BECOME US CITIZENS and the fact that 12.5 to 26.8 million citizens were jobless (December, 2012)!   We don't need ANY "guest workers!   We're in a depression!

Amnesty for 11 to 30 million felony criminal* aliens is about more than sacking our treasury $1.5 to $2.7 trillion every year, it’s treason!   Amnesty should have ended with the first realization that we don’t have enough resources or infrastructure for our own citizens… that we import 2/3 of our life-blood crude oil supply at outrageous monopolist prices, while coal is being prohibited because our president and senate forbid citizens from using their God given resources!

Amnesty is a perverse distraction to justify voiding oath of office, the Constitution, and law in order to overthrow Constitutional government! Undeniably the head of this snake is an absolute lawless government begging alien invasion while incinerating trillions in financial catastrophes they create.

Government loses $100,295 for every $37,096 40/hr. net pay citizen job destroyed! Criminal tax evading employers windfall profit per alien mercenary is $51,820 at government’s expense ($64,300 legitimate 40hr BLS wage (adjusted to 40 hr/week with 30% fringe & tax) vs. $12,480 no tax)!

ref: *Criminal means illegal entry and presence, wholesale worker-employer-government felony tax fraud-evasion and ID theft, endless theft of government funds by aliens, and governmental officials and employees, plus aiding and abetting, refusal to enforce Constitution and law, sacking the treasury, etc.  (That includes the president, senate democrats, 14 RINOs, and an endless supply of others!)

Read more…

Criminal employers pay on-the-run criminal aliens no tax cash $6/hr (same as $8 taxable minimum wage). These criminals violate tax and countless other laws, protect each other, and freely operate because the lawless US officials refuse to enforce the Constitution and law!   Instead of paying $64,300* for “same productivity”, criminal employers pay invaders $12,480 and keep the $51,820 balance.    This works for invaders and elected officials!    Officials tax working citizens $36,545**, gives it to criminal invaders, and the invader rewards criminal politicians with votes – legal or otherwise!

US citizens who take home $37,096* discovered criminal aliens take home $49,025, which is $11,929 more than citizens, for the same work!!   That discovery leads to learning they get $36,545** in subsidies to not work, and the $551/yr disposable spending lost is offset by $3,900 savings for not having to drive to work (30/mi/day @260/days @ $.50/mi)!   Bottom line citizens gain $3,349 by NOT WORKING!

This is an elaborate subversive crime within government that is designed to financially and socially collapse and overthrow government.   Criminally not paying taxes eliminates $27,204 tax revenue.   Illegally subsidizing criminal aliens adds $36,545.50** spending, which triggers a $36,545** jobless citizen subsidy.   It’s $100,295/each of self inflicted theft within government.    Adding the citizen net pay loss of $37,096 drives the total to $137,391 for each citizen displaced by a criminal alien!    It’s Armageddon!

Because base market output value ($64,300) is fixed without processing or profits within productivity exchange, changes in one element has reverse effects on the other (more pay = less criminal profit)!    The extreme $51,820 criminal profit begs minor price cutting that will drive legitimate competition into bankruptcy and create predatory monopolies!   Government corruption created a $6/hr cash tax free wage bases, wholesale lawlessness, a collapse of skilled trade & construction jobs, and incredible disincentives for working citizens!

It’s a heinous criminal enterprise run by corrupt government officials.   The imbedded current economic cost of $1.5 trillion @ 11 million to $2.7 trillion @ 20 million alien workers will collapse our economy if not stopped!     That cost will disappear when executive-legislative officers start enforcing the Constitution and “laws there-under!”    The crime is high treason.    It couldn’t be more serious!

The Obama-Rubio-Schumer-Graham “gang” says Americans are fat lazy racists victimizing hard working patriotic alien invaders!

*BLS avg.34.4/hr week $42,537 wages are $49,462 @ 40 hours full time.   “Average” employer cost is $64,300 after 30% separate employer taxes!   Employees take home $37,096 after 25% income-FICA tax.   **Hospitals can't refuse free medical care ($20,000+)   ref $402 billion/11million alien subsidy.

Fast forward a few days, now McCain and his other 6 status quo politicans (both Republican and Democract) have nothing but nice words about Marco Rubio, why you ask. 

Well hell Marco Rubio is now one of them, as a matter of fact he is the mouth piece for the Gang of Eight and their very crafty amnesty legislation.  Rubio, was seen on all the talking head shows last Sunday,laying out all the benefits of the Gang of Eight legislation.

Although,Senator Marco Rubio might have his heart in the right place, his brain has lost all concept of what the Gang of eight is really up to.

Bottom line -Marco could be on his way to being a RINO and not even knowing it!

Obama was Dead Wrong,

Illegals Cost California Solvency

 

 

            A recently revealed lowball study of the state’s budget problems shows that withdrawing services from California’s 2.5 million illegal aliens in the state would save the state roughly $4.5 Billion annually.  The breakdown of the savings was:  $2.5 Billion from the cost of education; $1 Billion from prison budgets; almost $780 Million from medical expenses; and other cost savings amounting to roughly $300 Million yearly.  In short, paying for the illegal aliens who have been welcomed into California (the state has more “Sanctuary Cities” than the rest of the country combined) over a typical period of five years would account for the total California shortfall at its 2009 cited $21 Billion maximum.  Later in this blog, you’ll discover why Rajjpuut used the term “lowball” to describe this recent study.

            How surprising can this statistic be?   A mid-2008 study by FAIR (Federation for American Immigration Reform) showed that 60% of the nation’s illegal aliens were concentrated in six states mostly in the Southwest.  California’s almost 3.5 million illegals in that study easily topped the list.  That figure you’ll notice is a full one million fewer illegals than found in the more recent lowball study mentioned earlier.  Poor methodology?  Deliberate undercounting?  Probably neither.  Every year that the state’s abysmal Sanctuary City situation has existed, it’s become much harder to accurately count the illegals, never an easy proposition in the best of scenarios.  

            Two years later when FAIR updated and expanded its study in 2010 it found that nationally illegals cost America $113 Billion yearly.  The study then was called “extremist” and compared to a study that said that rather than costing us, illegals raise the nation’s GDP by $245 Billion.  Certainly if that were true, the answer to our budget woes would be to throw open the borders to everyone.  This infamous Perryman Report, rumored to have been funded by “Open Society Initiative” founder George Soros, has been cited by all those seeking further amnesty and even citizenship to all illegals.  The Perryman Report is suspected of flawed, perhaps even deliberately flawed, methodology because “it fails to fully account for the cost to individual counties, cities and towns” which absorb a huge percentage of the cost of accommodation for illegal aliens.

Are illegals really such a big problem?  Ex-governor Arnold Schwarzenegger once said that it would be a “big mistake” to blame California’s huge illegal immigration population for the state’s long-enduring budget crisis.  Any sane review of the figures seems to cough up only one conclusion:  the Guv’s been in deep denial.  The average yearly budget deficit in California is slightly less than the average cost of illegal immigration to the state over 365 days according to the recent figures.

            California, with the other five big alien states, together face a cost of $36 Billion annually for K-12 education, criminal incarceration and health care costs.  Some studies show that the cost to California is NOT the $4.5 Billion recently touted, but rather, almost $12 Billion yearly to accommodate illegal aliens, roughly $3,400 per each man, woman or child LEGLLY residing in the state.  Other studies call even this figure into doubt and indicate the cost could be much, much higher.  Besides the monetary price, there is also the matter of sociological cost . . . .

A recent Supreme Court decision is forcing the state to release “up to 46,000 inmates” before their prison terms are concluded.  California is only expected to release roughly 30,000 “low-risk inmates” from prisons, the biggest release of lawbreakers in American history, as a measure to combat the state’s deficit.  Among ALL the California convicts an estimated 20,000 are illegal aliens about one-seventh of the entire prison population.  The state has deliberately given no indication how many of the projected “parolees” will be illegal aliens.  Nor has the state answered questions about how many illegals might be turned over to immigration officials for deportation or if any will just be allowed to walk freely back into California society.

Schwarzenegger, of course, has infamously guaranteed there was NO connection between the state’s large illegal alien population and its budgetary woes.  The ex-governator, it seems, has been in denial for eight long years. 

His predecessor, Pete Wilson commissioned two separate studies which each reached the same conclusions:  illegals were bankrupting California.  The 1994 Philip J. Romero study showed that illegal immigrants and their American-born children received $3.6 Billion more in state services than they paid in state taxes.  The vast majority of those taxes are sales taxes, not income taxes which few illegals pay.  In 1997 the Jordan Commission’s study conducted under the National Research Council put that figure at a $3.463 Billion cost to California.  But Schwarzenegger even willfully ignored far more up-to-date information:  Romero’s 2007 update of his earlier study.   Because of the state’s Sanctuary City situation, Romero found it far more difficult to pin down the full extent of the problem.  His shocking results:  illegal aliens were now costing California between $9.6 and $ $38.2 billion more in state services than they generate in state taxes. 

Everything about the illegal alien question is debatable.  Recent estimates of their population have used the numbers 12-18 million illegals with 13 Million the most commonly cited figures.  President Obama has used the numbers 11 million and even 10 million in describing them and suggested, in line with the Perryman Report that they constitute a huge NET POSITIVE to the nation’s economy.

Regardless of which figures are used, the logical conclusion is obvious.  California, Texas and other border states are being negatively affected by huge illegal alien populations.  California itself has been bankrupted by several huge policy boondoggles.  The Sanctuary City program in that state is definitely the most costly in the nation and the state’s welcoming of illegals has contributed mightily to California’s ongoing financial meltdown.

 

Ya’all live long, strong and ornery,

Rajjpuut

Satelite Border Patrol?

Well, there is more violence on the border with the U.S. and Mexico this time its on lake Falcon, never heard of it till now.Evidently this lake is another crossing point for drugs and, more than likely, illegals.

I don't understand why we cannot secure our borders.I have a cell phone and with it I can google any part of the world and zoom in on roads and even houses.If I can do that how hard would it be to patrol the border with satelites?-I don't get it!, can somebody please explain this to me!

As I See It

I'm new to the "TeaParty" But so far what I've read about the organization they seem to believe in many of the same "CORE" issues that I believe in.one of the biggest problems facing our nation is out-sourcing and illeagal immigrants taking the So-Called jobs that we don't want here in the United States.In this economy I would say we need every job we can find.I live in Cumberland county Tennessee, far from 'The Border', and the immigration problem has taken its toll on not only my business but my friends as well.

I hear alot about 'Immigration Reform' but I think that is just another term for 'Amnesty', my question in that regard is "How does giving citizenship to millions of illegal immigrants going to help? wouldn't instead ad to the problem here in the United States?- The thing about it is the jobs that these people are taking are not 'Jobs We Don't Want', we do want them and further more they are 'Jobs We Need'. But the 'Jobs-problem' we have is not limited to 'Immigrants' taking jobs we need here; There is also the issue of 'Out-Sourcing',sending work we need over seas.

The manufacturing sector of this country is in shambles, reminessant of a 'Ghost-Town' if you ask me; A close look at 'Detroit' and the surrounding area will verify that.The auto industry is just one.all you have to do is look at the cars you see arround you. In other words how many 'American-made' cars do you see and how many of them are from 'American' companies?- Better yet instead of looking at cars just look at your 'Shirt-Tag'

Obama Credibility Gap Widens on Eight Issues

http://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_content/politics/obama_administration/daily_presidential_tracking_poll

According to today’s Rasmussen Reports, skepticism is the word of the day. Most Americans, it seems, lack confidence in the stability of the banking system (54%), most doubt that they will receive their promised Social Security benefits (58%), and most (59%) believe there is significant disagreement within the scientific community about Global Warming. In another problematical area, President Obama indicated immigration reform bills will be brought to Congress soon. In Arizona, 70% favor new legislation there giving police the legal authority to stop and check the immigration status of anyone they suspect of being an illegal immigrant. This too fits into the theme of skepticism because polls have repeatedly shown that voters do not think the federal government is serious about reducing illegal^^^ immigration. Of course 55% of the people want the Obamacare law repealed. Dare Rajjpuut mention that in a poll Katie Couric revealed on CBS news*** showed a few months back, only one in every 14 or 15 Americans believed that Obama’s (2nd) $787 Billion Stimulus had created or saved ANY jobs at all.

It seems that the cynics out there have good, make that GREAT reason, for their doubts. Recent figures show that over eight million jobs have been lost since the start of the recession in October, 2007, thirty months ago. and over four million of those jobs have been lost during Obama’s fifteen months in office. In short, his promise that we will never see 8% unemployment if his stimulus bill was passed not only was just another case of Obama’s mouth writing another check his performance couldn’t cash . . . but his actions including the stimulus hurt the economy and cost us over four million more jobs. Add in one more tricky fact and, if it’s true as it appears to be . . . the Obama Administration fudged the stats to make the jobs situation appear much better than it was . . . it's the unusual question of what exactly DID he inherit, 130 million jobs or 134 million jobs? We know that at the peak of the Bush administration 138 million non-farm jobs existed.

Recently the administration while discussing all the jobs they have been busy “saving or creating,” has been using the number 130 million non-farm jobs as they discuss the economy, but back in January or February, 2009, the baseline for the economy was 134 million non-farm jobs. Why did those four million jobs get dropped from their jobs discussions? And why is Obama acting like 130 million non-farm jobs is what he inherited? Right now an investigation is looking into that question, but Rajjpuut knows where they went, everyone of the four million. In exchange for the government jobs created by the Obama government expansion, the rest were destroyed . . . that is they, like the Confederacy, are gone with the wind. Guv-jobs for radicals in exchange for destroying the economy, lovely, just lovely.

Barack Obama says, “Trust me,” or something similar, quite often, but . . . when it comes to Obamacare’s cost; unemployment; stimulus effectiveness or lack of it; illegal immigration; Social Security; the banking system; global warming; and the process to pass it, constitutionality and benefits of Obamacare . . . on every one of these eight issues Americans are telling him in no uncertain terms, “No, Mr. President, we don’t.” And the incredible trust Barack Obama enjoyed on January 20, 2009? It too has gone with the wind.

Ya’all live long, strong and ornery,

Rajjpuut

^^^ Some think of them as “undocumented Democrats” whose upcoming citizenship (should Obama's "reforms" pass) will create a jobs-cataclysm no one would have believed just fifteen months ago when the audacity of hope made its premier . . .

*** It was November 29, 2009 to be exact. Back then Couric said, “Although President Obama has been in office less than a year, many Americans are growing disenchanted with his handling of the enormous problems he and the country are facing, from healthcare to unemployment to Afghanistan. His poll numbers are sliding, and at least one poll shows his job approval rating has fallen, for the first time, below 50 percent."

Correspondent Chris Reid chimed in: “The president is getting battered on everything from the economy to foreign policy, some polls show Americans are increasingly questioning his credibility.”

The report asserted that while Obama talks about dealing with unemployment, which is near 10 percent and was at 10 per cent then and expected to rise, he has developed “no new ideas” for dealing with the problem. CBS also cited a poll showing that only 14 percent of Americans believe Obama’s claim that healthcare reform won’t add to the budget deficit, and less than 7 percent believed that the stimulus had created any jobs at all. The late November report also criticized the president for being “indecisive” on Afghanistan, and for returning from his recent Asian trip “with little to show for it.” An expert was quoted as describing his trip to China and the Far East as an “amateur hour,” because he did not line up agreements with foreign countries before venturing abroad. Couric labeled these problems a growing “Obama credibility gap.”
