URGENT: Stop Amnesty and Obama Care NOW!

If you oppose amnesty and ObamaCare, please act immediately!

Senators Mitch McConnell (R) and Harry Reid (D) and Speaker John Boehner (R) are hours away from passing a $1.014 trillion "Omnibus spending bill" that provides stealth funding for Obama's unconstitutional amnesty program, includes more than $1 billion to "resettle" illegal immigrants, and builds a virtual funding firewall around ObamaCare.

Forward this page to everyone in your address book. Urge them to call their U.S. Senators and Member of Congress (telephone numbers here) and:
  1. Demand that they vote against the pending Omnibus spending bill.
  2. Demand a straight up and down roll call vote on any appropriations bill to fund amnesty OR The Affordable Care Act (ObamaCare).
It can be done. If your either of your Senators or your member of the House are Republicans, remind them that past treachery on amnesty cost Eric Cantor, former House Majority Leader, his job!

We Must Stop the RINO Betrayal Before Thursday!

The good news is that the American people, furious over ObamaCare and amnesty, handed Obama's Congressional socialists a midterm election spanking last November. Unfortunately, the Obama agenda is the establishment agenda and the Republican Party's national leadership fully intends to assure that all of it is fully funded and implemented, including amnesty for illegal aliens and ObamaCare.

This duplicity shouldn't be a real surprise given the political establishment's "dirty little secret". As was once routinely taught in civics classes, the Constitution requires that all money bills must originate in the House of Representatives.
Although the GOP's RINO leadership desperately hopes you don't realize it Congressional Republicans have had the power to shut down ObamaCare, amnesty for illegal aliens, and any other item on the Obama agenda by simply voting not to fund it since they gained control of the House in 2010, four years ago. If the House of Representatives does not appropriate money to support a Federal program, it cannot be implemented!
"Omnibus spending bills" and "Continuing Resolutions" are among the favorite legislative tools of establishment politicians and a primary cause of the explosive growth of Federal Spending. These legislative devices lump appropriations for many federal programs into a single bill and spare politicians from ever having to explain to their constituents why they voted to fund unpopular legislation. The stock excuse is that failure to vote for these bills would result in "a government shutdown" and "Republicans would get the blame".

Senator Mitch McConnell and Speaker John Boehner intend to accomplish their betrayal by enacting a $1.014 trillion "Omnibus spending bill" which combines eleven separate appropriation bills to lock in funding levels for all federal agencies through September 15, 2015. The pending "Omnibus spending bill" will provide complete funding for ObamaCare implementation and Obama's unconstitutional amnesty program. If enacted before December 11, it's a "win-win" for "Democrats" and "Republicans". It would virtually foreclose any real opportunity to use defunding as a way to defang amnesty and ObamaCare. The only losers are the American people.

Please forward a link to this page to everyone you know. Then I most urgently suggest that you call your U.S. Senators and Member of Congress (telephone numbers here) and urge them to:
  1. Vote against the pending Omnibus spending bill.
  2. Demand a straight up and down roll call vote on any appropriations bill to fund amnesty OR The Affordable Care Act (ObamaCare).
The establishment began to tip its hand even before the final midterm election votes were tallied.. Democrat politicians who supported the Obama agenda were drummed out of office. Republican politicians who opposed the Obama agenda won big. So what "spin" was immediately put on these results by the establishment press and politicians? Well, it wasn't that voters decisively rejected "ObamaCare" and amnesty. No, establishment RINOs and their Democrat peers want to change the subject to voter dissatisfaction with "gridlock" and a desire "to get things done".

Changing the Subject: Gridlock

Changing the subject is, of course, a classic propaganda tactic routinely employed by politicians of all stripes to confuse the public. Consider these attempts by the Republican leadership to change the subject from Obama's failed policies to "gridlock" as reported by The New York Times on the day after the election, Wednesday, November 5th.
“We’re going to pass legislation,” Mr. McConnell said at a news conference in Louisville, Ky. “This gridlock and dysfunction can be ended.”  
“I think it really becomes important to appear to want to be a governing party rather than a complaining party,” said Senator Roy Blunt of Missouri, a member of the party leadership. 
Latching onto the "gridlock" explanation wasn't confined to the U.S. Senate. Consider this excerpt from a Denver Post article dated November 15, 2014:
The nation’s governors say they are as fed up as voters with the gridlock in Washington. And they say the message from the 2014 election is clear: do something.
“The onus is on Republicans to govern,” said Utah Gov. Gary Herbert, a Republican and vice-chairman of the National Governors Association. “There are issues out there that need to be addressed that were kicked down the road for way too long and I think they will do themselves a very significant disservice and make it more difficult for them to win the White House in 2016 if they don’t in fact get some things done. They need to find a way to work together.”
This attempt at diversion is, of course, completely false. The election outcome was a direct result of public dissatisfaction with Obama's agenda. RINOs don't want to acknowledge that because they share that agenda.

Changing the Subject: Amnesty

The RINOs who sit atop the national GOP organization are absolutely committed to amnesty for illegal aliens. They use a different vocabulary than Obama's socialists. They always preface their remarks with pledges to "secure the border first" but quickly segue to the "need to fix our broken immigration system" and the need for "immigration reform that offers a pathway to citizenship."

Here, in his own words, is John Boehner's real position on "immigration reform".

The RINOs promised "immigration reform with a pathway to citizenship" to their corporate supporters who want ongoing access to cheap labor. They also claim to believe that amnesty will somehow secure them Hispanic votes and use the claim that failure to deliver will result in GOP losses in future elections. Their rhetoric is pure baloney. Here's the only immigration reform that is needed.
  1. Enforce existing immigration laws fully. Deport any person who enters the country illegally from this point on.
  2. Make it a federal crime for any business to knowingly employ an illegal alien.
  3. For the millions of illegal aliens who are already here, pass legislation to deny them access to all federally funded programs and benefits, including health care, unemployment, food stamps, etc, Stop subsidizing illegals' living costs and they will go home. No deportations necessary.
Changing the Subject: ObamaCare

More from the Denver Post article of November 15, 2014
It is a delicate topic [editors note: this means it would require actually having to vote straight up and down on funding instead of hiding it in an "Omnibus spending bill"], but top Republicans [editors note: This means Boehner and Mitchell] acknowledge they cannot repeal The Affordable Care Act, particularly with Mr. Obama able to veto any such effort. They will no doubt take some repeal votes, but their initial focus could be on smaller changes.
The RINOs don't mind letting the Obama administration take the heat for the "ObamaCare" disaster, but they still want a Washington-controlled program that forces people to buy hospital insurance because it has promised to deliver this to the nation's largest insurance companies and corporate employers.
 
MIT Professor and ObamaCare consultant Jonathan Gruber has been the target of indignant public fury for telling the world that "Obamacare only passed due to the stupidity of the American voter and a lack of transparency."  Consider the implications of these quotes with Dr. Gruber's comments in mind.
Former Senator Alan Simpson (R-WY): "We have two political parties in this country, the Stupid Party and the Evil Party. I belong to the Stupid Party." 
George W. Bush on Bill Clinton: "He's my brother from another mother."
It is an undeniable fact that establishment politicians, regardless of "Party" affiliation, share the same agenda, the same assessment of American intelligence, and operate in the same social circles. They are a very close-knit group and they do not represent the American people.

The ObamaCare Ambush!

America's community hospitals, local physician-directed medical care, and the economies of thousands of cities and small towns are being systematically destroyed. It is being done in plain sight and almost no one knows about it.

The Affordable Care Act ("ObamaCare") is an elaborate scam, the most outrageous betrayal of public trust in history. It is a last ditch attempt to postpone the imminent collapse of Medicare, Medicaid, and the entire Third Party Payment system. It is designed to benefit insurance companies, the federal government, large corporate employers, cooperative professional and trade associations, and a bi-partisan gang of establishment politicians at the expense of everyone else.

The Affordable Care Act's disastrous web site rollout received significant media attention. There have been a few news stories about narrow networks and premium costs. However, there has been virtually no coverage of its devastating impact on the private practice of medicine or upon the resulting catastrophe that threatens to engulf thousands of hospitals and the communities they serve.

According to the American Hospital Association, there were 4,999 community hospitals in the U.S. as of January 2, 2014 of which 1,980 are small and rural. To learn how U.S. hospitals have fared financially since passage of The Affordable Care Act, we reviewed financial data for the 3,449 acute care and critical access community hospitals that had so far filed Medicare cost reports for the years 2011 through 2013. 

ObamaCare kills hospitals by restricting patient admissions (and hence revenue) as it simultaneously increases mandated regulatory expense. This graph shows the large and rapidly increasing gap between net patient revenue and operating expense for U.S. community hospitals. 
Although the overwhelming majority of America's hospitals are non-profit organizations, they cannot survive if expenses are greater than income. America's community hospitals have experienced aggregate cumulative losses from operations of $10 billion dollars since ObamaCare was enacted! Those losses, by the way, were not confined to small rural hospitals. The next graph shows what has happened since 2010 to the bottom line of America's community hospitals.
America's hospitals are not the only casualties. For many small towns, the local hospital is the largest employer and for them the crisis is existential. The hospital provides most of the community's jobs, including the highest paying ones. Its payroll supports the community's grocery stores, retail shops, gas stations and other businesses. Those businesses, in turn, provide the tax base that sustains local government. In summary, the hospital's payroll is the engine that drives the local economy. If it dies, the community's economy dies with it!

In the wake of the midterm election outcomes, it is tempting to believe that ObamaCare’s days are numbered, especially since all of the new Republican Senators promised to repeal The Affordable Care Act during their campaigns. Unfortunately, the GOP leadership remains as committed to ramming some form of ObamaCare down our throats as it is to granting amnesty. That's why RINOs are all over the media bleating about the need to "repeal and replace" ObamaCare. With respect to amnesty, the RINO mantra is that "America's immigration system is broken" and that we need "immigration reform with a pathway to citizenship". Here's what they should be saying instead:
  • ObamaCare does need to be repealed but it does not need to be replaced. The federal government needs to get out of the health care insurance business, regardless of the promises that RINOs have made to insurance companies and other large corporate donors. 
  • Our "broken immigration system" doesn't need to be "repaired" as much as it needs to be employed. Simply enforce existing immigration laws, aggressively prosecute employers who knowingly hire illegals, and deny illegals access to any federally-funded programs. Washington's decades-long politically correct approach not only encourages illegal immigration, it subsidizes it.
The most destructive components of The Affordable Care Act (the employer mandate, etc.) won't be implemented until next year and beyond and so their disastrous effects have yet to be felt. If you want to preserve small hospitals, local medical care, and the small town communities of rural America, I urge you to forward a link to this post to your Senators, to your member of Congress, and to any hospital board members and/or administrative staff you know. Urge them to repeal The Affordable Care Act's individual and employer mandates as well as all subsidies. If that is accomplished, ObamaCare will collapse of its own rotten weight and the free market will create a vastly superior replacement..

Tracking Ebola

The “Ebola Infection Projector” Excel workbook available for download from http://tinyurl.com/q4kepfz was built using CDC data from the current West African outbreak available as of October 12th, 2014.

Three caveats are required.  
  1. Although I've had a long career in health care as a hospital chief executive officer and at one time served as director of planning for 17-county health systems agency, I am neither a clinician nor an epidemiologist and make no claim of expertise in those areas. That said, the download provided here treats this as a math problem (which it is) and makes no attempt to diagnose or apply clinical knowledge of any type.
  2. Although I have a high level of confidence in the workbook's calculations, they are only as good as that “official” information upon which they are based. The workbook does show why it is so important to stop virus transmission in the population in the very early stages before it goes parabolic.
  3. Finally, given the government's propensity for lying, I am withholding judgment on the validity of the outbreak and believe everyone should approach "official information" about the outbreak and its course with a great deal of healthy skepticism.
The workbook contains three worksheets. 
  1. The sheet behind the first tab (“Input and Summary Table”) allows you to input different transmission rates cell B6 (the number in shown in red font just opposite “Number infected By Each New Patient”). The number currently entered in this cell is the reported West African transmission rate as of October 12th, 2014.
  2. The worksheet behind the second tab (“Ebola Time Line Detail”) plots the number of infected people and deaths forward at ten day intervals based on the transmission rate entered in cell B6 on the “Input and Summary Table” worksheet.
  3. The third sheet (“U.S. Ebola Projections”) graphs the result. The course of the outbreak will ultimately be determined by the transmission rate. Change the value in Cell B6 on the “Input and Summary” worksheet behind the first tab to project different potential outcomes.
Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone differ from the United States in countless and profound ways. Basic sanitation in West Africa ranges from hideous to non-existent. Those West African nations are also very poor and the population is not highly mobile. The rate of transmission will be significantly affected by those differences. We should have the edge in the sanitation category. However, because West African roads are bad, there aren’t that many cars, and the West African population doesn’t fly a lot, transmission of the virus is apt to be comparatively localized. On the other hand, the U.S. population travels a great deal using mass transit and cross-continent air transport. That’s not a plus in terms of containing an outbreak.
It is also important to remember that the current observed transmission rate is based on a very small sample. We really don’t know (and neither does the CDC) how many actual cases there have been. It may be an entirely different number than what is being reported, either because of a real absence of accurate information or deliberate news (panic) management.
It should also be remembered that we’re talking about “average” transmission rates. At the early stages of an outbreak, this can vary tremendously in a short span of time. The more days that elapse between the diagnosis of Patient “0” and any given date, the better the chances of an accurate projection. It may be months before enough data are available to generate a statistically defensible projection. That said, the user can follow changes in the transmission rate by adjusting the transmission rate input until the result on the “Ebola Time Line Detail” work sheet matches the officially reported U.S. infections and deaths on any given date. You can then observe projected changes in the outbreak’s course over time

May God have mercy on us all.

The Message

Have you ever awakened to find that the solution to a problem with which you’ve been struggling is in the forefront of your consciousness? Almost as though you solved it in your sleep? That has happened to me occasionally, usually in connection with a business issue. I experienced a variant of that early Sunday morning. It was a variant because until it happened I was unaware that the problem existed.

When I write something, it is my habit to walk away for an hour or so before returning to perform a final edit.  If it’s a blog post, I’ll read it again after publication before retiring for the night. That's what I did Saturday night. I felt pretty good about that post's content and even engaged in a bit of self-congratulation before hitting the sack.

Early Sunday morning I was jolted from a deep sleep by a chilling realization. Into my mind had come the clear conviction that the extent of The Enemy’s contempt for humanity, for truth, and, indeed, for God Himself can be discerned mathematically by calculating the distance between the content of The Enemy’s lies and objective reality. Moreover, the measurement of that distance carries a message of immense significance. I have no idea where that idea came from because it was exactly the opposite of what I had gone to bed believing.

You may recall that Saturday’s post began with a declarative sentence: “The Masters of the Universe are mad with fear.” It was a great lead sentence. I now believe it was completely wrong.

We have been “officially lied to” for decades about virtually every important matter. Until recently, the official lies maintained just enough of a connection to objective reality to make them plausible at a distance. For example, there really are inflation and unemployment rates. They just aren’t the rates being officially reported. Recently the quality of official lies made a quantum leap into obvious and total falseness. In Saturday's post, I attributed this to fear-driven haste. In fact, the transparent obviousness of the Enemy's current lies now seems to be deliberate. Please bear with me as I explain.

It has been observed by others that The Enemy seems somehow compelled to tip his hand, telling us of his malignant intentions in advance. Consider this quote from Ron Suskind's interview with an aide to George W Bush, later identified as Karl Rove.
The aide said that guys like me were "in what we call the reality-based community," which he defined as people who "believe that solutions emerge from your judicious study of discernible reality." I nodded and murmured something about enlightenment principles and empiricism. He cut me off. "That's not the way the world really works anymore." He continued "We're an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you're studying that reality—judiciously, as you will—we'll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that's how things will sort out. We're history's actors ... and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do." - Suskind, Ron (2004-10-17). Faith, Certainty and the Presidency of George W. Bush. The New York Times Magazine.
Until recently The Enemy's lies have contained enough truth (or partial truth) to be at least plausible. The most recent lies have no connection with reality. In fact, they convey the exact opposite of reality.
  • The invasion by illegal aliens across the U.S./Mexican border happened, not because of a need to flee dangerous conditions south of the border, but because the United States government invited it and subsidized it.
  • Russia did not commit aggression against the Ukraine. The United States government did by overthrowing the Ukraine's elected government and establishing a puppet regime in its stead.
  • ISIS did not spring up unexpectedly and suddenly. The United States government and its "allies" created ISIS, trained it, armed it, and continue to "advise" it to this day.
Geometrically these are the maximum possible lies. They are 180 degrees from the truth or, in other words, an infinite distance mathematically. The subtext embedded within the transmission of these lies carries the following messages:
The hatred and contempt with which The Enemy regards each of us, humanity as a whole, Truth, the real world that God created, and God Himself have reached maximum intensity.
The Enemy no longer feels bound by objective reality, is in total control of our world, and believes that humanity is powerless to oppose it.
The power of the Enemy's lies is enabled and enhanced by the technology that defines our environment in the modern world, a technology that separates human kind from God's genuine reality. Years ago, Steve Quayle coined the term "techno-narcissism" to perfectly describe that environment. Smart phones, hi-definition television and its so-called "reality" shows, and violence-filled video games work collaboratively to construct a false and dehumanizing virtual reality. That virtual reality damages relationships in the "reality-based world", separating people from each other and ultimately from God. Truly Satan is loose in the land.

Let us pray.

First We Must Call Things By Their Right Names!

The Masters of the Universe are mad with fear. Consider these three events, all of which have been manufactured and all of which are rapidly coalescing into a perfect storm, capable of unleashing devastating chaos on a world-wide scale.
  • The invasion by illegal aliens across the U.S./Mexican border. 
  • The Ukrainian/Russian crisis. 
  • The ISIS crisis.
Clearly these are contrived threats, designed to increase the public's clamor for protection. No one who is paying attention believes the official narratives about how they came into being.

What has made the Controllers so reckless? After all, they see themselves as the top echelon of human kind, the "top less than one percent". They operate all the levers of power including governments, mass information and entertainment media, educational institutions, central banks, and the monetary system. They are members of the Illuminati, the Council on Foreign Relations, the Bilderbergers, and the Trilateral Commission. They are "citizens of the world", unbound by such outmoded concepts as patriotism, loyalty, and morality. For more than a century, they have relied upon the governments of nation states to control the people through their primary control device, the Big Lie. They spun additional layers of deception to create the illusion that opposition to their rule existed only among a tiny minority. In reality it is the Controllers and those who serve them that are few in number. Their apparent invincibility is a façade, as false as the lies that serve as the foundation of their empire.

From the beginning of time, apex predators have reacted violently against perceived threats to their dominance. That is why the world is now in grave danger. The Controllers know that their power is slipping away and they are afraid. That fear is not baseless. According to a recent CNN poll, just 13 percent of Americans say the government can be trusted to do what is right always or most of the time. Congress has a 16% approval rating. A new Reuters poll reports that nearly one-in-four Americans "strongly supported or tend to support" the idea of their state seceding from the United States. Barely more than half of those polled "strongly oppose or tend to oppose" the idea. A June 2014 Gallup poll reports that American confidence in any and all national news media is no higher than 22%. When the Empire's controlled polling organizations openly share data such as these you can rest assured that the magnitude and intensity of public fury must be very great indeed.

Earlier this week both Dave Hodges and Judge Robert Napolitano wondered why, in the midst of all the angst and anger, doesn't someone do something about it? That is a very good question, one that every thinking person who values peace and freedom should be considering with care.
What Can be Done and Who Must Do It
According to current Census data, more than 321 million people live in the United States, a  number which supposedly includes officially counted illegal aliens. Adults (age 18 and older) number 247 million in round terms. The Pareto Principle (the so-called 80/20 rule) suggests that 197 million U.S. adults will sit things out no matter what happens. That leaves 49 million people over the age of 18 who could potentially be mobilized to "do something about it". The question is, what is that "something" and who will do it? There aren't a lot of choices to consider. Here, for what it's worth, is my short list.
The Dancing with the Stars/NFL Monday Night Football Option: The Pareto principle suggests that this "do nothing" approach, aka the "Ostrich Option," will be the popular choice of almost 200 million Americans. Unfortunately these people are likely to be very unhappy and die a lot when the power goes out and the cupboard is bare. It is definitely not my option of choice. 
The Shoot the Bastards and Head for the Hills Option:  As tempting as this may sound, this is a bad choice, at least for the moment. Of course, that will change quickly if and when people are being rounded up, "disappeared", and thrown into re-education camps. The problems with violent revolution are that (1) a whole lot of the wrong people are going to get killed, (2) most revolutions wind up swapping one set of control freaks for another set which, as often as not, is even worse than the set that was thrown out in the first place, and (3) history suggests the whole thing may be unnecessary. See the next option for details.
 
The Great Awakening Option: The most appealing thing about this option is that the most important first step can be done "off the grid" and in privacy. It is low risk, doesn't require a great deal of personal effort, and is very simple.  
Political history demonstrates that tyrannical regimes aren't often removed from power because their military forces have been defeated on the battle field by armed popular uprisings. It is a matter of fact, not opinion, that from the days of the Roman Empire to the collapse of the Soviet Union, authoritarian governments and empires have fallen because the people being ruled stopped believing in their legitimacy. After that occurs, it is only a matter of time before even the regime's most enthusiastic enforcers abandon it. That cardinal truth holds the key to freedom. The Masters of the Universe have only the power that we are content to grant them.  
We (that is, you, me, and the rest of the American People) are literally allowing ourselves to be enslaved by our own demonstrably false beliefs. We have been systematically conditioned to accept enslavement. From birth, we are taught to respect lawful authority as a matter of civil obligation, morality and personal responsibility. As human beings, we are naturally imbued with a love of family, friends, and country from which flows a sincere and heartfelt patriotism. Then, throughout our lives, we are immersed by our Controllers in a consistent narrative that conflates the nation and the government and depicts the American government as a powerful defender of freedom and all that is good in a hostile and dangerous world. We are told endlessly by all entertainment media, by all news and information media, and by our similarly immersed social connections that we are a free people and that our freedom exists because government authority is restricted by our Constitution and the Republic it created. Driven by our need for personal security and safety, we want desperately to believe that this comforting and familiar narrative from our childhood, woven throughout the fabric of our lives, remains true. Unfortunately that is not the case. The measures of dissatisfaction reflected in the poll results quoted in this article are the result of a very painful cognitive dissonance. Those polls measure the depth of the irresolvable conflict between what the American people have been taught by the Controllers and what they are experiencing in the real world.
Here are the steps I'm taking, starting today. I hope that you will join me and encourage others to do the same.
Stop thinking of and acting as though Washington establishment politicians represent the legitimate American government. Don't refer to these thugs, publically or privately, as "Senator", "Representative", "Member of Congress", or "President". The Constitutional government of the United States has been usurped by a corrupt gang of liars, thieves and killers that long ago forfeited any claim to constitutional legitimacy. That is how we all should think of them going forward.
Stop voting in national elections. By continuing to vote you are voluntarily perpetuating a fraud and telling the Controllers that they can still count on you. I know that not voting is almost impossible to imagine if you've been voting all of your life. However, it is time to wake up and smell the coffee. The country is dying and there are absolutely no differences worth talking about between the "Republican" and "Democrat" wings of the Washington Party and their politicians. If you feel you must vote because of local issues, write in "NOTA" (none of the above) on ballot spots reserved for "national" candidates.
Stop voluntarily communicating with any elected federal officials. No letters. No e-mails. No telephone calls.  No contact. Nothing.  Stop participating in your own enslavement by conferring upon them a legitimacy that they do not deserve.
A Special Note: If you agree with The Great Awakening Option's concepts and actions, please send copies of this page's link to everyone on your contact list whom you believe might be receptive. Time is short but if we can make this message go viral between now and November 4th, it could have a great impact during the 2014 national elections and the days that follow.

ISIS: The Interventionists' Latest Frankenstein Monster

The Washington War Party's politicians and talking heads, including President Obama, need to shut up about the ISIS "threat to the West" because they created this Terrorist Army from Hell.  ISIS did not magically and suddenly appear out of the ground. It was spawned as a result of decades of bi-partisan interventionist U.S. foreign policy. 

ISIS is comprised of:
  • Remnants of Saddam Hussein's Republican Guard.
    • This ISIS component provides much of the group's field leadership expertise. It exists because of George W. Bush's invasion and occupation of Iraq. The attack on Iraq was a war crime under international law according to a treaty to which the U.S. is a signatory. A bi-partisan majority of the Congress, including then-Senator Hillary Clinton, was complicit in this crime. Just 133 members of the House of Representatives voted NAY, on October 11, 2002, to the unprovoked use of force against Iraq.
  • Al Qaeda foreign fighters from Afghanistan, Libya, the Sudan, Palestine, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, and the UAE.
    • This ISIS component descended directly from the mujahedeen guerrilla fighters who ultimately defeated the Soviet Union in Afghanistan, some of whom later were absorbed into the Taliban.  These fighters were trained and equipped by the CIA during the Reagan and George H.W. Bush administrations.
  • Jihadist fighters from Libya.
    • Prior to Gaddafi's NATO-sponsored overthrow, the U.S. did not have a consulate in Benghazi. After Gaddafi's overthrow and subsequent murder, a "rat line" was established under CIA auspices to funnel heavy weapons from Benghazi, Libya through southern Turkey into Syria. Those arms shipments likely included at least some of the more than 10,000 weapons turned in to the U.S. Marines by the Kosovo Liberation Army following the earlier NATO-sponsored violent dismemberment of Yugoslavia during Bill Clinton's presidency. The "rat line" was funded by Saudi Arabia, Turkey and Qatar. It is worth remembering that Senators McCain and Graham (among others) were critical of Obama's "leading from behind" during Gaddafi's overthrow. They demanded that the U.S. take a "leadership role" to "liberate" the Libyan people. Note to Senators McCain and Graham: Had Gaddafi not been overthrown, there would have been no "consulate" in Benghazi and Ambassador Chris Stevens would not have died there.
  • Elements of the so-called "Free Syrian Army".
    • In July of 2011, the FSA was stood up, trained, and armed by CIA operatives, contracted Academi (formerly Black Water) mercenaries, and Special Forces units from the U.S., the U.K. and Turkey. FSA received logistical support from Jordan and financial backing from Saudi Arabia and Qatar. The FSA's announced goal is to overthrow the government of Bashar Assad, President of Syria. FSA's membership is primarily made up of Sunni Muslims. Assad is a Shia Alawite Muslim and an ally of Shia Muslim Iran. The ultimate target of this War Party operation is Russia, with Iran's planned destruction as a stop along the way.
To the normal citizen, focused on raising a family and earning a living, it appears that the world is descending into out-of-control chaos. Appearances are deceiving. Everything that is happening, from the created ISIS threat to the threat of nuclear war with Russia to the unfettered illegal alien invasion across the southern border of the U.S., makes perfect sense if the goals are the elimination of national borders, massive population reduction, and control of the world's assets.

The most important takeaway for anyone concerned about these concurrent crises is that, despite all the Kubuki theater outrage, none of today's crises would be possible except for bi-partisan support from the political and banking establishment. The planning horizon employed is long term and the pursuit of objectives remains consistent over decades.

The Insane Lying Weasels of Fox News

Fox News routinely describes these invaders as "children".
Many will see this post as an attack on Fox News. They will be correct.

Conservatives, Libertarians, and Constitutionalists clearly understand the threat posed by Obama, his Socialists, and the propaganda outlets that support them (CNN, CBS, ABC, MSNBC, The New York Times, Time Magazine, The Nation, etc.). Unfortunately, many are so outraged by Obama's evil antics that they completely miss another equally deadly threat, primarily because they've been tricked into believing that the people behind it are on their side. It reduces to this:
  • Obama and the Socialists are Evil, but incompetent.
  • The Fascist "neoconservatives" are both Evil and Insane!
Neoconservatives, like their Socialist "opposite numbers", control a powerful array of electronic and print media propaganda weapons. They include Fox News, The Washington Times, The Wall Street Journal's editorial pages (but not its news section), The Weekly Standard, and National Review. All can be counted upon to aggressively push the neoconservative agenda and, just like Obama's Socialist propaganda outlets, all of them routinely lie.

Here's the bottom line. Unless you are a big government empire-building interventionist, neoconservatives do not share your values and they are not your friends! Consider the evidence carefully.

Russia and the Ukraine

On July 24th, just four days ago, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Martin Dempsey, a Four Star General and the highest ranking officer in the US Military, spoke before the Aspen Security Forum in Aspen Colorado where he said the following:
You’ve got a Russian government that has made a conscious decision to use its military force inside another sovereign nation to achieve its objectives. It’s the first time since 1939 or so that that’s been the case. They clearly are on a path to assert themselves differently not just in Eastern Europe, but Europe in the main, and towards the United States.
What an incredible thing to say! Self-evidently, as the surviving people of Panama, Serbia, Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, and Syria will attest, the United States government "has made a conscious decision to use its military force inside another sovereign nation to achieve its objectives" many times since 1939.

It is possible to wonder what could have possessed General Dempsey to say such a thing. The answer is very simple. Neoconservatives are crazy and they lie a lot. They believe, by the way, that a nuclear war is "winnable" and possibly worth fighting. Proof of their insanity is well illustrated by a 2002 comment attributed to a ranking neoconservative, former Bush advisor Karl Rove, by Ron Suskind of the New York Times.
The aide [Rove] said that guys like me [Suskind] were ”in what we call the reality-based community,” which he defined as people who ”believe that solutions emerge from your judicious study of discernible reality.” I nodded and murmured something about enlightenment principles and empiricism. [Rove] cut me off. ”That’s not the way the world really works anymore,” he continued. ”We’re an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you’re studying that reality — judiciously, as you will — we’ll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that’s how things will sort out. We’re history’s actors . . . and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do.”
If you would like a more complete understanding of how neoconservatives got this way, please select the "Who Killed the Republican Party" link at the bottom of this page.

The Border Invasion Crisis
 
Neoconservatives operating under the Republican banner have been leading the charge toward a grant of slow motion amnesty which they euphemistically call "immigration reform with a pathway to citizenship". Karl Rove, Senator John McCain, Senator Lindsay Graham, and Speaker of the House John Boehner were among the neoconservative politicians who tried to sell rank and file Republicans on this idea for almost two years. They falsely claimed that failure to do so would assure future Republican electoral defeat. Graham was pushing this notion as late as June 15th.
Graham said if Republicans let the status quo stand and hope illegal immigrants leave the United States because of poor conditions, they will obliterate their chances of winning the White House in two years. “If we keep playing this game that self deportation is the only answer for the Republican Party, we will have destroyed our chances in 2016 and dealt a death blow to our party because by 2050 the majority of the country is going to be African American, Hispanic and Asian,” he said on CBS’s “Face the Nation.”
Neoconservatives were working hard for "a pathway to citizenship"--right up until Eric Cantor, the neoconservatives' hand picked House Majority Leader, suffered a stunning defeat in his June 10 primary because of his support for slow motion amnesty. After Cantor's defeat, pro-amnesty neoconservative politicians (except for Graham who lagged behind because he is a slow learner) headed for the tall grass. John Boehner went so far as to announce that "immigration reform was dead for this year", that is, until after the fall election. Fox News, however, continues to do its job. It unfailingly describes the illegal alien invasion as "a humanitarian crisis on our border" and never misses an opportunity to call the invaders "children", even though as many as 90% are teenage males older than 14, some of whom are known to be MS-13 drug cartel gang members as are shown in the photograph at the top of the page. Rupert Murdoch, the neoconservative owner of Fox News, is a long time and enthusiastic supporter of slow motion amnesty.

The Impeach Obama Movement
 
Rank and file Republicans are puzzled and frustrated by across-the-board resistance from GOP neoconservatives to the growing public demand for President Obama's impeachment, particularly given the many clearly impeachable "high crimes and misdemeanors" he has committed and continues to commit. The Party's virtual abandonment of what neoconservatives deride as "secondary social issues" (abortion, homosexuality, and gun control) is inexplicable to them. So is the GOP leadership's flaccid resistance to "Obamacare" and its lack of enthusiasm for any serious effort to repeal this tremendously unpopular legislation. All of this makes sense once you understand the neoconservative world view.
 
Impeachment of the President might be dangerous because neoconservatives are guilty of the same "high crimes and misdemeanors" and worse. Obama's impeachment might remind too many people of their own unsavory history. Moreover, they have no problem with an Imperial Presidency. They just want the Imperial President to be their Imperial President, the better to grow the Empire.
 
Neoconservatives regard social issues as a distraction from their main focus: the growth of government internally and the growth of the Empire abroad.
 
Finally, neoconservatives have no philosophical objection to "Obamacare", other than its incompetent design and implementation. Beyond that, the program's continued existence gives them another platform from which to launch phony attacks on "Socialism". The extent of the Republican Party's fraudulent fecklessness is exposed as soon as one understands that the GOP's House majority gives it the power to stop Obama's program, including "Obamacare", dead in its tracks. It doesn't matter what the Senate passes and the President signs. Unless and until the House appropriates the funds necessary to proceed, no money can be made available for implementation. "Obamacare" has a special problem in that regard. The Supreme Court in its infinite wisdom has decided that "Obamacare" is Constitutional because it is a allegedly a tax. Very well. The Constitution requires that all tax bills originate in the House of Representatives. The Obamacare legislation originated in the Senate. That alone makes its passage, signing, and enforcement illegal under the Constitution. What's more, the GOP leadership, along with the rest of the political and legal establishment, knows it.

The Mad March to World War and Mass Extermination

It has been decided. It is to be World War, the total destruction of all existing major nation states, and a very large world population reduction.

The architects of today's global network of Welfare/Warfare States, Monetary and Banking Structures, and Information Control systems were very smart, but they weren't omnipotent. They used their network for more than a century to steer government behavior, exert a significant amount of control over information available to the public, and manipulate the money supply. In the end they could not control fundamental economic laws or population demographics any more than they could control gravity. Now their successors, less intelligent and far less competent, are mad with fear. Their entire enterprise rests on a fantastically complicated foundation of financial and monetary Ponzi Schemes. That foundation's imminent collapse poses an existential threat to their wealth and power. There is only one solution: start over.

Today everything coming out of the Information Control Systems is a purposeful Lie. The purpose is to instigate a new World War, one that will ultimately result in the destruction of the current "world order" of nation states and the depopulation of most of North America and the Eurasian land mass. Evil on that scale seems unimaginable to all sane people but to the monsters who financed both sides of our World Wars (and most of the smaller ones), the deaths of millions of "useless eaters" are just a cost of doing business. They've done it many times in the past, just on a smaller scale.

Public attention is riveted at the moment on three developing and manufactured "crises". Look for a serious effort to fold all of these crises into a single "actionable element" for the purpose of mobilizing public opinion to support a literally suicidal war effort. Although they are hypothetical, recent history and the trajectory of rapidly developing events certainly make the scenarios outlined below at least plausible. Every major political figure in both the Democrat and Republican political parties and every establishment electronic and print "news" outlet is now fully engaged in the effort to whip up anti-Russian war hysteria. Whenever an effort of this scope has been mounted in the past, war has always followed.
The Ukraine/Russia Crisis: Russia is accused of increasing its "aggression" against the Ukraine. The US is already pre-positioning weapons and supplies in Poland and a Bill has been introduced into the US Senate which, read carefully, amounts to a Declaration of War with Russia. For more detail, see Paul Craig Roberts' excellent discussion of these developments here and here 
An overt military clash between the military forces of the Ukraine and Russia occurs (or is said to have occurred). A bi-partisan coalition of outraged politicians demands retaliatory action from NATO. What are described as "limited targeted air strikes" by NATO are launched against forward Russian military positions. Russia retaliates. The World War on the European Front begins.
The Middle East Crisis: ISIS, an irregular force led by former officers in Saddam Hussein's Republican Guard and populated with Sunni foreign fighters, completes the partition of Iraq, erases the boundaries between Iraq, Jordan, and Syria and directly threatens Israel. It has already proclaimed itself to be an Islamic State Caliphate. The ISIS fighters are largely Sunnis. They were equipped and trained by NATO operatives and financed by Saudi Arabia to fight against Syria's Assad, an Alawite, who is supported by Iran.  
The US attempts to force the Shiite Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki's resignation. Iran warns Saudi Arabia and the US not to commit further aggression against the Iraqi state remnant. ISIS begins an artillery bombardment of Baghdad with long-range Howitzers abandoned by fleeing Iraqi regular army units. Iran launches air strikes against the ISIS artillery positions. ISIS retaliates against Iranian bases with Saudi air support. The World War on the Middle East Front begins.
The Mexican Border Crisis: The Obama administration continues to transport illegal aliens from the US/Mexican border to hundreds of locations across the US despite massive and increasingly angry public opposition. Media organs, including Fox News, continue to call this massive invasion "a humanitarian crisis on our border" and unfailingly describe the invaders as "unaccompanied minor children" In fact, more than 90% of these "children" are male teenagers older than 14 and include a significant number MS-13 cartel gang members, some of whom are known killers.  
Upon the return of Congress from its summer recess, President Obama announces that he is issuing an Executive Order unilaterally granting refugee status to 4 million illegal aliens from Central America, effectively immunizing them from arrest and deportation. Capital Hill switchboards crash as a result of angrily-protesting call volume. The next day, suicide bombers of Somali descent detonate explosives inside the Mall of America in suburban Minneapolis killing 62 shoppers. A few minutes later, a car bomb explodes outside an Italian restaurant in Lower Manhattan resulting in scores of casualties. Articles of Impeachment are introduced. Riots erupt in the inner cities of 30 US urban centers. 
The First Exchange: In an attempted decapitation strike, nuclear weapons detonate without warning over the District of Columbia, New York, Atlanta, Philadelphia, Boston, Chicago, Colorado Springs, Kansas City, Omaha, and Mount Weather Virginia. A counter-strike is ordered against Russian population centers by the surviving Continuity of Government staff. The world's first nuclear war has begun.
Pray with me that these scenarios remain fiction. It seems all too likely that they, or something very like them, lie immediately ahead.

Prelude to War: The Flight 17 Shoot Down (Part II)


This Monday morning the War Hawks are in hyper-drive, screaming for Russian scalps as they frantically lay the groundwork for military action. Establishment propaganda organs (all "main stream" news outlets and especially Fox News) have spent the weekend generating a blizzard of misinformation, disinformation, and outright lies. There is now, according to our unanimous main stream reporters, near certainty that Malaysian Flight 17 was shot down by “pro-Russian Separatists” if not by the Russians themselves. They know this to be the case because that is what they have been told by the now-standard “unnamed sources within the U.S. intelligence community”. Besides, the culprit had to be Russia or pro-Russians because the Ukrainian government denies having any BUK anti-aircraft missiles in Eastern Ukraine.
Oops!

It turns out that a picture really is worth a thousand words. On July 4th, a little more than two weeks ago, Ukrainian government forces were photographed by an AP reporter, moving the very type of missile reportedly used to shoot down Flight 17 into the eastern Ukraine. Here’s the picture—and here’s the link to the AP story that accompanied it.


Nine dead after clashes in Ukraine

While we don't know with certainty who launched that deadly missile, this picture does prove one thing conclusively: the Ukrainian government lied when it denied having missiles of this type in the region from which the launch appears to originated. As Grandpa always used to say, "When you're on the side of the Angels, there is no reason to lie!"

In these circumstances, it is recklessly irresponsible to indict Russia for this tragedy, particularly when those doing the indicting are responsible for initiating the civil war in the Ukraine without which this catastrophe would never have occurred. The U.S. government gets that "credit" because it planned, organized, equipped and advised the so-called Maidan Alliance forces that violently overthrew the legitimate government of the Ukraine some five months ago. Given that well-documented history, it is beyond hypocritical for President Obama and Senator McCain to lecture anyone about the evils of committing aggression against another sovereign nation.

It's time to tether the War Hawks before it is too late!

Prelude to War: The Flight 17 Shoot Down

President Obama described the shoot down of Malaysian Flight 17 as an "outrage of unspeakable proportion". The President's characterization is correct. The murder of 298 innocent people is a terrible crime and its perpetrators must be punished. The first question that should be explored by investigators is "Cui bono? (who benefits)? The answer to that question is: not Russia or the Ukrainian separatists.

This tragedy has all the earmarks of a False Flag operation. The Ukrainian regime owes its very existence to the U.S. instigated violent overthrow of the country's duly elected president. It stands to benefit if Russia and Vladimir Putin can be successfully blamed. However, there is no evidence that the Russian separatists have ever possessed weapons with the ability to reach Flight 17's altitude. Moreover, the Ukrainian military not only possesses missiles of the type used to shoot down Flight 17, it is trained in their use.

I don't pretend to know who launched the missile that shot down the Malaysian airliner. There is, however, absolutely no doubt as to who bears ultimate responsibility for initiating the civil war in the Ukraine without which this catastrophe would never have occurred. That responsibility lies squarely with the United States government because it planned, organized, equipped and advised the forces that violently overthrew the legitimate government of the Ukraine some five months ago.


Nor is the Ukrainian government the only beneficiary. The twin crises of the Flight 17 shoot down and the simultaneous Israeli invasion of the Gaza Strip have blown the ongoing invasion across our southern borders off the front page to the considerable relief of the President and the bi-partisan Congressional supporters of amnesty.

In addition to exploring the "who benefits" question, criminal investigators always take the history of possible suspects into account. When a bank robbery is committed, protestations of innocence by potential suspects with a history of robbing banks are apt to be met with suspicion. For more than 30 years, lies, aggression, and death have accompanied neoconservatives wherever they have gone. Their history as empire-building serial killers places them and their client, the Ukrainian government, near the very top of the likely suspects list.

Beginning in 1983, virtually unnoticed by the American people, the U.S. government established a number of quasi-private Foundations described as "Non-Governmental Organizations or NGOs. NGOs were then used to facilitate so-called "color revolutions" in targeted countries from Serbia to the Ukraine. Think of NGOs as "community organizers" on steroids. NGOs are used to organize, finance, and advise opposition political parties and other groups. When the time comes, they stand up, equip and coordinate training for armed opposition groups such as Maidan's violent anti-government opposition in the Ukraine and the so-called "Free Syrian Army" in Syria. NGOs are funded through the State Department and the largess of George Soros. 


Because of the near total blackout by cooperative U.S. "news" organizations, few Americans know that the U.S. orchestrated the violent overthrow of the Ukraine’s freely elected government in February of this year. The State Department employed the arrogant and foul-mouthed Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland, National Endowment for Democracy (NED) employees, CIA Operatives, Black Ops specialists from Academi (formerly known as Blackwater), and about five billion dollars to achieve regime change in the Ukraine. Nuland's performance, by the way, proves that not all neoconservatives are Republicans.

It is also worth knowing that the National Endowment for Democracy has two "core grantees", the International Republican Institute (IRI) and the National Democratic Institute (NDI). The current chairman of the IRI is none other than the execrable Senator John McCain who had the gall to personally travel to Kiev on the eve of the government's overthrow to urge the Maidan protesters on. Seventy-six people were killed, mostly by sniper fire. Oddly enough, some of the people killed on both sides were shot with the same weapons. Go figure!

It was difficult to watch Samantha Power's performance at the United Nations and President Obama's televised remarks a few hours later. For these two to criticize any other government of interfering with another nation's sovereignty is to display a truly nauseating level of hypocrisy. The transparent falseness of the entire narrative regarding events in the Ukraine and the relentless unanimity with which it is repeated by all establishment media is unprecedented. 


The threat of World War has never been greater than it is at the moment. The only remaining obstacles to the neoconservative dream of a world-wide Washington-ruled Empire are Russia, China, and, to a far lesser extent, Iran. Public support for U.S. government institutions and policies is at record lows, a frightening situation for politicians of all stripes. Washington may underestimate Russian resolve and provoke hostilities in the belief (hope?) that a new war will rally public support for its policies. It is also possible that Moscow will interpret Washington's bellicose arrogance as an existential threat and decide to strike preemptively.

Right now might be a very good time to keep the gas tank full.

Are Americans Really Dumber than a Bag of Hammers?

The Washington Establishment and its co-conspirators in the "International Community" certainly must think so. They no longer care if their lies are discovered. They are hell-bent on transforming the country into a Third World backwater and they believe the American people are going to let them get away with it. It's up to us to prove them wrong.

Let's get some important basics out of the way.
First, "comprehensive immigration reform with a pathway to citizenship" is code for stealth amnesty. It is most often used by double-dealing pro-amnesty Republicans who want to escape the political consequences of their actions. Don't be taken in by weasel-worded appeals to "work together to reach a reasonable compromise". In this case compromise is a national suicide pact, the political equivalent of agreeing to jump from a window on the 40th floor instead of one on the 80th floor. The end result is exactly the same.
Second, there are not 11 million "undocumented immigrants" in the U.S. According to the Immigration Counters web site, the actual number of illegals exceeds 25 million, more than twice the official "estimate". "The popular myth that there are '10-11M undocumented workers in the country' is misleading, disingenuous and blatantly false. That figure fails to factor in the chain migration of unemployed dependent family members (wives, grandparents, migrant children, migrant girlfriends, single mothers, anchor babies), the adult unemployed, those incarcerated, transients and fugitives. After the former Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) was directed by Congress to stop counting in 1981, even the conservative numbers of the 2000 Census Bureau (CB) estimated at that time the total illegal immigration population was about 8 million [editor's note: 8 million was the official number of illegals more than 33 years ago!]. That figure was never intended to only represent the number of workers as is incorrectly quoted today."
Third, as nearly as can be determined given the denial of access and near total secrecy surrounding the military bases and other locations housing them, most of "unaccompanied minor children" illegally crossing our borders aren't exactly grade school kids. Despite the pathos-inducing images of "moms with young children", more than 80% of detained illegals are males over fourteen years of age. 
Fourth, the tens of thousands of "undocumented immigrants seeking a pathway to citizenship" pouring across our borders are suddenly being redefined as "refugees seeking asylum". This new label is being used because both U.S. and international law grant special status to "refugees seeking asylum". Asylum is defined as the protection granted by a nation to someone who has left their native country as a political refugee. The lie that these illegal aliens are refugees is designed to (1) legitimize the use of the U.S. Office of Refugee Resettlement to relocate  illegal aliens to the U.S. interior and (2) convey the legal protections that refugee status grants including almost total protection from deportation. Of course, the invading aliens are no more "refugees" than teen-aged MS-13 gangbangers are "children" in any meaningful sense.
The border crisis did not spring up suddenly and spontaneously. It is the intended result of a planned operation of unprecedented size, one that has been put together over several years at a cost of billions of dollars. It required coordination among many U.S. government offices and agencies, the national leadership of the U.S. Democrat and Republican political parties, establishment media outlets, multiple foreign governments, and several international organizations to bring it about. Please note the timeline and event sequence outlined below.
September 2010 through September 2013: Catholic Charities of Dallas receives $823,658 from the Department of Homeland Security for “Citizenship Education Training” for “refugee and entrant assistance.”
December 2010 through November 2013: The Catholic Diocese of Galveston's Catholic Charities  receives $15,549,078 in federal grants from Health & Human Services for “Unaccompanied Alien Children Project” with a program description of “Refugee and Entry Assistance.” 
January 2012: Obama's Department of Labor enters into “partnership agreements” with foreign countries to preserve the "rights" [sic] of their nationals who are illegal immigrants in the United States. The point person is Labor Secretary Hilda Solis, a former California congresswoman with close ties to the La Raza. Under Solis, the DOL created a special division to enforce labor and wage laws in industries that typically hire illegal aliens without reporting anyone to federal immigration authorities. Solis entered formal agreements with Mexico, Nicaragua, Guatemala, El Salvador, Costa Rica, the Dominican Republic and India vowing to protect the "rights" [sic] of their nationals who have illegally entered the United States. Department of Labor regional offices team up with local embassies and consulates from the foreign countries to distribute information to their citizens about their “rights” in the U.S.  
December 2012 through January 2014: Baptist Child & Family Services receives $62,111,126 in federal grants from Health & Human Services for “Unaccompanied Alien Children Program.”   
January 29, 2014: The U.S. Customs and Immigration Service solicits bids to provide escort services for unaccompanied alien children". The solicitation states that "Transport will be required for either category of [Unaccompanied Minors] or individual juveniles, to include both male and female juveniles. There will be approximately 65,000 UAC in total: 25 percent local ground transport, 25 percent via ICE charter and 50 percent via commercial air. Escort services include, but are not limited to, assisting with: transferring physical custody of UAC  [Unaccompanied Alien Children] from DHS to Health and Human Services (HHS) care via ground or air methods of transportation (charter or commercial carrier)." 
July 7, 2014: Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto and Guatemalan president Otto Perez Molina hold a joint press conference to formally announce a new program that will allow Guatemalan citizens to legally travel through Mexico in their effort to enter the United States illegally. Guatemala is one of three sending countries accounting for most of the illegal aliens coming across the U.S.-Mexico border during the ongoing surge. The agreement grants Guatemalans 72 hours of legal status while they make their journey to the U.S. The "Southern Border Program to Improve Passage" will increase the number of border checkpoints along the Mexico-Guatemala border, provide medical care, and offer Guatemalans a Regional Visitor's Card. The card grants Guatemalans enough time to make the trek to Mexico's northern border. The program will also offer protection and financial assistance for unaccompanied minors who attempt to make the journey. There is absolutely no chance that the Mexican government would make such an agreement unless it had assurances from the U.S. government that there would be an outlet for those Central Americans to transit through out of Mexico at the U.S. border.
July 8, 2014: In a story posted in San Jose, Costa Rica, the Associated Press reports that United Nations officials are pushing for many of the Central Americans fleeing to the U.S. to be treated as refugees displaced by armed conflict, a designation meant to increase pressure on the United States and Mexico to accept tens of thousands of people currently ineligible for asylum.
President Obama's snarky arrogance makes it tempting to lay all blame for this disaster at his feet and he does own much (but not all) of it. In any case, millions are asking themselves and each other, “Why aren’t the Republicans doing something to stop the invasion? The answer is straightforward: the national leadership of the Republican Party is a willing participant in the attack on American sovereignty through amnesty and has been for many years.

As one who has personally gone through it, I understand how painfully hard it is for people to admit that "their party", the party whose candidates they have supported for years with work, contributions and votes, would betray them. Somehow they have managed to excuse or ignore countless public statements and legislative initiatives over the course of many years from the likes of President George W. Bush, Senator John McCain, Senator Lindsey Graham, Senator Marco Rubio, Speaker of the House John Boehner, and recently defeated House Majority Leader Eric Cantor. If you are one of those good people, turn up your sound and listen carefully to Speaker John Boehner's sneering attack on Republican House Members who oppose amnesty. If that doesn't convince you of the futility of expecting a rescue from the national Republican "leadership", nothing will.

Post Publication Note: Most pro-amnesty Republicans (including those who claim that Obama's impeachment would be a "bad idea") are not conservatives at all. They are neo-conservatives and that makes a huge difference. Neo-conservatives want an all-powerful President. They just want that President to be one of theirs so they can implement their agenda.  If you don't understand why the Party is acting this way, pour yourself a cold drink, find a quiet corner, and take a few minutes to read "Who Killed The Republican Party". What is happening will then make more sense.
