Hope and Change Forever, Unless it’s Stopped Today

The other night on MSNBC, Chris “Thrill up my Leg” Matthews blurted out the truth about illegal immigration. It will continue, he said, because “[the Republicans] want cheap labor. And Democrats want votes. Let’s face it.”

Cheap labor (h/t, Chamber of Commerce) and votes: for these two agendas, money and power, the political establishment is selling out your country. Incidentally, proposed bipartisan “comprehensive” immigration reform would accommodate both agendas, and only make the problem worse.

In other immigration news, Presidential Candidate Donald Trump has stolen the spotlight with his strong denunciation of illegal immigration from Mexico. Said Trump, “What can be simpler or more accurately stated? The Mexican Government is forcing their most unwanted people into the United States. They are, in many cases, criminals, drug dealers, rapists, etc.”

Trump’s salty language, which also happens to be true (though to be fair, many of these criminals are not Mexican, but travel through Mexico into the USA), has so enraged the political class that he is being attacked from both sides of the aisle. His proposed solution is to build a wall, and let Mexico pay for it!

Here are some other attainable solutions to deal with this dire problem:

  • Enforce existing law! The law isn’t broken, it is being intentionally ignored.
  • Use some of the military equipment that is being dispersed around the country to local police departments to secure the border. If it’s good enough to police American citizens, why not the border?
  • To protect voting, develop a national identification standard that positively identifies U.S. citizens.
  • Re-establish trust with the Border Patrol and other law enforcement agencies, which have been hamstrung and abused by the Obama administration.

On the topic of votes for illegal immigrants, New York City, under lawless Mayor Bill DeBlasio, has led the way with ID cards that do not specify if the person is a legal citizen or illegal alien. Explained DeBlasio last year, “this is a way of normalizing and improving people’s lives.”

It’s also a way to ensure that the estimated 500,000 illegal immigrants living in New York City can vote if they choose.

The diabolical scheme to import Democrat votes from South of the Border is led by George Soros, who is also the leading money man and strategist behind Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.  Importing voters is about holding and maintaining power by hijacking the electoral system through fraud.

In the six and a half years since Obama took office, the United States has accumulated more debt than under any other president (federal debt now exceeds $18 trillion) and more than 93 million Americans are out of work. National security is at its most precarious point in century, due to drastic military cuts, asinine rules of engagement, and the intentional blindfolding of intelligence officers who are combating Islamic terrorism.

Aside from violent crime, this is the real danger in uncontrolled immigration. The country, its citizenry, and culture are being diluted. If left unaddressed, it will make the agenda of Obama, Soros, and Hillary permanent.

Should the next president continue to ignore this dire problem, America will disappear like the flame of a candle which has been plunged beneath water. One second it burns bright, the next it is gone without a trace.


America’s Sovereignty is Slipping Away

Introduction

This short essay will explore three ways that the United States is being conquered from within. If these trends are not soon understood and reversed, beginning with the defeat of Hillary Clinton for President, the sovereignty of the United States will remain in peril.

***

On July 4, 1776, the Founding Fathers declared their independence from the tyrannical rule of Great Britain. In doing so, they dedicated the newly-founded United States of America to the ideal of Liberty.

Every school child learns these words from the Declaration of Independence:

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.”

For a people to be free, they first must govern themselves. There is evidence all around that the tradition of self-government is dying.

The American Form of Government

Today, too many Americans take for granted the Constitution, the federal-state division of power, and the democratic system that elects representatives.   The way the system is designed to work is as simple as it is elegant: the people (citizens) elect, among themselves, Representatives to deliberate, pass, and then enforce laws.

Periodically, elections are held to hold these Representatives to account. If they do not serve their constituencies faithfully, it is through the election whereby they are to be removed from power. In this way, the body of Representatives stays in touch with the desires of the people. Hence, self-government through Representatives who ultimately answer to the citizens with each election.

The remainder of this article will examine three distinct trends that are working to permanently undermine America’s self-government and sovereignty, as well as the electoral system. It will also explore the ways these trends overlap and reinforce each other.

Conquered by Greed: The Trans-Pacific Partnership and the Crowning of an Emperor

Although it is currently in fashion on both the Right and Left to bash corporations, the plain truth is that they are and always will be profit-seeking and opportunistic. Industrialists who found Adolf Hitler an unrefined brute in 1930 were equally impressed by his power a few years later. Governments ultimately control the law, including corporate law; it is the job of government to police corporations.

However, now that government-corporate corruption is no longer really taboo (cf. the Clinton Foundation scandals, and the fact that Hillary is still the leading Democrat candidate), there is a merger taking place between large multi-national corporations and civil governments. Nothing exemplifies the threat of this phenomenon more than the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP).

This so-called “free trade” bill, when and if passed, will actually be a treaty. This means that once it is ratified by the Senate, it will be on equal legal footing with the Constitution.

We know little about the TPP because the text of the bill is being held in secret. To disclose its contents to the public, even for a member of Congress, is illegal and potentially punishable by jail. This level of secrecy is unprecedented for a trade bill. What we do know is that the TPP, combined with “fast track” authority, would transfer enormous regulatory power away from Congress and into the White House. This includes labor and environmental law.

Stripping the TPP of all its legal pretense, how different is this than crowing the President (Obama, and his successors) Emperor? What happened to separation of powers and checks and balances?

Equally alarming, disputes involving American law would be arbitrated by international bodies. The decisions made by these courts would be binding, with the same force as Congressionally-passed law. In the parlance of our times, with “transgender” and now “transracial,” you can think of such laws as “trans-laws.”

tpp mapOf course, the leading advocates of political-corporate partnerships are the Clintons. The Clinton Foundation masquerades as force for global good, but analysis of financial statements reveal that 90% of all collected “donations” were spent by the Foundational on operational expenses. It has further been alleged that, through an arrangement with the Clintons, a Russian company secured approximately 50% of American uranium.

Treason, anyone? Or will we get more media crickets?

The newest scandal that stinks of Clinton-corruption involves a UAE-based shipping company, Gulftainer. The company’s top management is close with the Clintons. Just recently, Gulftainer was awarded a 35 year lease to operate in Port Canaveral, home to the Kennedy Space Center and a nuclear submarine base. The deal was signed by Clinton insider, Secretary of Treasury Jack Lew, and not subject to a national security review.

Immediately following Gulftainer’s opening festivities in Cape Canaveral earlier in the month, the company announced that they hope to be in no less than five American ports by 2020. Suspicions of terrorism notwithstanding, with the Clintons on your side, you too can operate America’s critical national infrastructure.

Conquered by the Invaders: Our Broken Immigration System

No less a threat than the corporate state is the nation’s completely broken, more accurately sabotaged, immigration system. What is a country but the people who live within its borders?

The same corporate interests that are counting on the passage of the TPP are also interested in unrestricted immigration to the United States, both legal and illegal. Low-skill immigration (usually illegal) means cheap, non-unionized labor. High-skill immigration (think H1B visas) means an ability to undercut wages for American workers in the knowledge-based economy (primarily IT and software work).

Both high- and low-skill immigration, legal and illegal, are encouraged by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

High level statistics tell the story best. One report from the Center for Immigration Studies concluded that all new jobs from 2007-2014 went to immigrants [ages 16-65]. Even if a broader view is taken to include all ages, more than 70% of new jobs in the same period went to immigrants.

When there are already 93 million Americans who are not participating in the labor force, a record high, does it seem fair to Americans to import more foreign workers? It is breaking the middle class!

Economics aside, two other immensely important issues are inextricably linked to the broken immigration system: national security and the integrity of the voting system.

cartel mapRegarding national security, Latin American cartels have never been more powerful. Whether they operate out of Mexico, El Salvador, Honduras, or Venezuela, transnational organized crime organizations are engaged in cross border smuggling of narcotics, arms, and people. So powerful and wealthy are these cartels that they rival governments. Like ISIS, they will not hesitate to commit massacres of entire villages, and some are known to behead and crucify their victims. This is not a coincidence.

Judicial Watch released photographic proof of an ISIS camp in Mexico a mere eight miles from the border. Hezbollah operates a cocaine cartel in Mexico. In Venezuela, Hezbollah has been growing for decades. Border agents regularly find Muslim prayer rugs around the border.

The idea that all illegal immigrants are noble “migrant” farmers or landscapers is pure fantasy. Not only has the United States been invaded by ruthlessly violent cartels, all evidence points to an invasion by Islamic terrorists as well.

Regarding the integrity of our elections, the Obama Justice Department has been conspicuously lax enforcing laws designed to prevent voter fraud. As expected given the rest of the nonsense dominating public discourse today, demanding photo ID from voters is somehow “racist” or “discrimination.”

Making matters worse, ten States have enacted new laws to make obtaining driver licenses dramatically easier. Practically speaking, this is all you need to pass for an American citizen on a daily basis. Combined with “motor voter” laws, it is not hard to see where such policies lead: illegal immigrant voters. Not only is voter fraud intentional, but it is well-planned.

The tragedy with respect to the immigration problem is not existing law, which in most cases is reasonable. The problem is that Obama and his advisors made a conscious decision not to enforce the law. Indeed, Border Patrol Agents and other immigration officials are not allowed to do their jobs, and are threatened with their livelihoods by the administration if they do.

As a result of this willful choice by the administration to open our borders, many individuals who entered the country, illegally or even legally under the guise of humanitarian causes, have simply disappeared into the shadows.

Conquered by the Sword: The Muslim Brotherhood’s Deadly Grasp on Power

The causes of corporatism and unrestricted immigration have their greatest ally in the Muslim Brotherhood. This fascist-terrorist organization is the parent of virtually all of today’s Islamic terrorist groups, and it wields the most influence in the Obama administration.

Helping the Muslim Brotherhood along the way at each step is billionaire investor (and former Nazi collaborator) George Soros. His multi-headed hydra of “Progressive” organizations practically sets the Obama administration’s priorities.

Below are just some examples of the overlap among the Muslim Brotherhood, George Soros, the administration, the Clintons, and the immigration advocates at the Chamber of Commerce.

  • Soros has donated $10 million to the Center for American Progress (CAP is one of his many front groups). CAP is a leading voice in combating alleged “Islamophobia,” an idea pushed by the Muslim Brotherhood-founded Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) to silence all critics of Islamic terrorism.
  • CAP was previously led by John Podesta, who was Chief of Staff for President Bill Clinton and is currently Counselor to President Obama.
  • The U.S. Chamber of Commerce has a headquarters in Doha, Qatar. Doha, capital of the small Gulf nation, is home to the Muslim Brotherhood’s spiritual leader Yusuf al Qaradawi, an international fugitive (Interpol) and anti-Semite. Qatar, a Muslim Brotherhood state, has been referred to as an “ATM for terrorists.”
  • Like the Chamber of Commerce, many Muslim Brotherhood front groups in the United States favor amnesty and vastly increased immigration. The Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC) openly supports “comprehensive immigration reform.”
  • George Soros is funding legal efforts to fight laws that require voters to present photo identification. Photo ID laws make vote fraud more difficult, which is a problem when you’re trying to steal elections. Simultaneously, Soros is funding the push for amnesty among so-called conservatives.
  • The documented associations and dealings between the Clintons and Soros are too numerous to list in full, but include Media Matters, the push for “climate change” legislation through the United Nations, and the aforementioned Center for American Progress/John Podesta.
  • Hillary’s closest aide and “surrogate” daughter of the Clintons is Huma Abedin, whose entire family is involved with global Muslim Brotherhood organizations and programs.

Islam is a religion founded by a warlord. It spread through the sword and through conquest. It is naturally aggressive, as world history demonstrates beyond reasonable disagreement. Jihad, or holy war, is a religious duty for all Muslims.

Yet today Islam has found partners in the West who make conquest possible, largely without war. It is conquest through infiltration, influence, and the domination of American legal system, economy, and government.

The conspiracy to undermine America’s sovereignty is enabled by lust for power and simple greed. The Muslim Brotherhood has equal partners in Obama, the Clintons, and George Soros. Corporations are all too happy to go along if it helps their bottom line.

Victory means replacing the Constitution with Sharia, or Islamic, law. To some extent, they have already succeeded in Europe, where criticizing Islam is banned by “hate speech” codes. Millions of Muslim immigrants live in Europe in localized areas governed by Sharia. This pattern is repeating itself now in the United States.

Conclusion

When you hear academics and other eggheads refer to problems as “structural,” it means that they are already part of the system. In other words, the problem is no longer academic.

The existence of the problems described above is not up for debate. They are here, and we see their effects each day in the news. They are serious issues that affect our lives, and will continue to get progressively more malignant until something is done.

hillary benghaziMore fundamentally, they are direct threats to our sovereignty and our status as a free people.

Whether it is obviating Congress through the TPP, welcoming violent cartels and terrorists over our borders, or undermining the integrity of elections, it is clear that the ruling politicians no longer have the citizens’ best interests in mind.

Hillary Clinton and Barack Hussein Obama keep the same company in Soros and the Muslim Brotherhood. Should Hillary Clinton be elected to the Presidency, it would be tantamount to a third (and potentially fourth) term for Barack Hussein Obama. This would be catastrophic and potentially fatal to the United States.


Qatar Awareness Campaign – Chamber of Commerce

Chamber of Commerce of the United States of America
1615 H Street, NW
Washington, DC 20062-2000

Dear Mr. Donohue:

This letter is being sent to you on behalf of the Qatar Awareness Campaign Coalition. The purpose is to inform you and the public of the activities of Qatar. In 2010, the US Chamber of Commerce opened a branch in Doha, Qatar – AmCham Qatar. Qatar, while the wealthiest country per capita in the world, is at once the home base of the Muslim Brotherhood and also the world’s most prolific sponsor of terror, including: Hamas, Boko Haram, and the Islamic State.

AmCham Qatar is the “first legally established foreign Chamber of Commerce in Qatar.” This is not a surprising fact, for Qatar is a business partner and client of several of America’s largest and longest established companies, including Boeing, Lockheed Martin, ExxonMobil, and many others. More
