Why do we owe Mexicans anything at all?

Last week the Bureau of Labor Statistics re-benchmarked the payroll jobs data back to 2000. Thanks to Charles McMillion of MBG Information Services, I have the adjusted data from January 2001 through January 2006. If you are worried about terrorists, you don’t know what worry is.
Job growth over the last five years is the weakest on record. The US economy came up more than 7 million jobs short of keeping up with population growth. That’s one good reason for controlling immigration. An economy that cannot keep up with population growth should not be boosting population with heavy rates of legal and illegal immigration.
Over the past five years the US economy experienced a net job loss in goods producing activities. The entire job growth was in service- providing activities–primarily credit intermediation, health care and social assistance, waiters, waitresses and bartenders, and state and local government.
US manufacturing lost 2.9 million jobs, almost 17% of the manufacturing work force. The wipeout is across the board. Not a single manufacturing payroll classification created a single new job.
The declines in some manufacturing sectors have more in common with a country undergoing saturation bombing during war than with a super- economy that is "the envy of the world."
... In five years, the US economy only created 70,000 jobs in architecture and engineering, many of which are clerical. Little wonder engineering enrollments are shrinking. There are no jobs for graduates. The talk about engineering shortages is absolute ignorance. There are several hundred thousand American engineers who are unemployed and have been for years. No student wants a degree that is nothing but a ticket to a soup line. Many engineers have written to me that they cannot even get Wal-Mart jobs because their education makes them over-qualified.
Offshore outsourcing and offshore production have left the US awash with unemployment among the highly educated. The low measured rate of unemployment does not include discouraged workers.
Labor arbitrage has made the unemployment rate less and less a meaningful indicator. In the past unemployment resulted mainly from turnover in the labor force and recession. Recoveries pulled people back into jobs.
Unemployment benefits were intended to help people over the down time in the cycle when workers were laid off. Today the unemployment is permanent as entire occupations and industries are wiped out by labor arbitrage as corporations replace their American employees with foreign ones.
Economists who look beyond political press releases estimate the US unemployment rate to be between 7% and 8.5%. There are now hundreds of thousands of Americans who will never recover their investment in their university education.
Unless the BLS is falsifying the data or businesses are reporting the opposite of the facts, the US is experiencing a job depression. Most economists refuse to acknowledge the facts, because they endorsed globalization. It was a win-win situation, they said.
They were wrong.

Mr. Bush, Put Up That Wall!

Tractor-trailers continue to be a preferred way of smuggling migrants, at a great cost to truckers who get tempted by the promise of easy money, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials said.
Last weekend, agents arrested three truckers who worked for at least two different smuggling rings and who now face up to five years in jail.
One, who is not a U.S. citizen, will probably lose his green card. All will lose their rigs, which were seized by the government.
One truck belonged to an unnamed trucking company and the two others belonged to the truckers themselves.
"All independent truckers and companies are vulnerable if the truckers are being approached and accept the money offered to them," said Daniel Page, ICE assistant special agent in charge in El Paso.
The truckers arrested last weekend transported migrants in the sleeper compartments of their 18-wheelers, not in the trailers.
Their arrests were the work of a new task force called Border Enforcement Security Task force, or BEST, with members from ICE, the Border Patrol, El Paso Sheriff’s Department and the U.S. Attorney.
Those arrested were Genaro Tapia Saldaña, 46, of Long Beach, Calif.; Joel Victoria Michaca, 42, of Banning, Calif.; and Homero Perez Silva, 36, a permanent U.S. resident who lives in Juárez.
Tapia was arrested Saturday at the Petro Truck Stop in Anthony, Texas, after three undocumented immigrants were spotted climbing into his cab.
Victoria was arrested Sunday on the 7700 block of Gateway East after officers saw three undocumented immigrants climbing into his 18-wheeler at the Petro 2 Truck Stop in Vinton.
One man was hiding in a closet and the two others under the bed. Perez was arrested Sunday at Interstate 10 at Trans Mountain Road. Six undocumented immigrants, including a 6-year-old girl and an 11-year-old boy, were under the sleeper compartment.
The truckers said they were paid between $400 and $600 per immigrant. The migrants were headed to Phoenix, Los Angeles, Dallas and Chicago.
Also arrested this weekend was Magdalena Estrada Collazo, 44, of El Paso's Lower Valley, with three undocumented men in her 1998 Ford Expedition. Her vehicle was seized as well. All were charged with alien smuggling.

(Another) Iraqi family caught in Texas crossing border illegally

HARLINGEN, Texas: Customs officials in South Texas say an Iraqi family was caught within miles of the Rio Grande after crossing the border illegally.
The family of five was detained Saturday night near U-S Highway 281 in Pharr.
Border Patrol spokesman Oscar Saldana says computer searches revealed no ties to terrorism.
Saldana says the family remains in Customs and Immigration Enforcement custody while being processed for deportation.
Saldana confirmed the capture after an anonymous tip was phoned in to the Valley Morning Star newspaper.
He said he could not disclose whether there had been similar apprehensions of Iraqi nationals within the sector.
He also could not say whether the family claimed they were in the U-S for religious reasons, as did eleven Iraqis caught with illegal passports last week in northern Mexico.

UK Authorities Dhimmi Down For Muslim Criminals - at the expense of taxpayers AND their national pride

Jail loos turned from East
The Sun UK
JAIL bosses are rebuilding toilets so Muslim inmates don’t have to use them while facing Mecca.
Thousands of pounds of taxpayers money are being spent to ensure lags are not offended.
The Islamic religion prohibits Muslims from facing or turning their backs on the Kiblah — the direction of prayer — when they visit the lav.
Muslim lags claimed they have had to sit sideways on prison WCs.
But after pressure from faith leaders the Home Office has agreed to turn the existing toilets 90 degrees at HMP Brixton in London.
The Home Office refused to reveal the cost of the new facilities — part of an “on-going refurbishment”.
One Muslim former inmate said: “The least the Prison Service can do is make sure people can practise their religion correctly in prison.”
But a Brixton jail officer said: “If they didn’t get locked up for committing crime they would not have this problem. Yet we have to sort out their loos. If we weren’t paying for it as taxpayers I’d laugh my socks off.”
Around a quarter of prisoners at the Category B jail are Muslims.
Labour MP Khalid Mahmood said: “As far as I understand this rule only applies in a place of worship.”
Tory MP Ann Widdecombe said: “Some common sense needs to be applied.”

3rd man arrested in freeway shooting death of boy
Jan 29, 2007 08:39 AM EST
U.S. Marshals have arrested a third man in connection with the shooting death of a 12-year-old boy that may have stemmed from an illegal-immigrant smuggling deal gone sour.
Saul Juarez, 19, was arrested at a relative's apartment in Tucson and was taken to the Pima County jail Sunday.
Juarez will be extradited to San Bernardino County on charges related to the homicide.
California authorities already have arrested two men in connection with the Dec. 11 shooting death of 12-year-old Gabriel Garcia of Hesperia, Calif.
Pedro Escobedo, 43, turned himself in three days after the shooting. He has pleaded not guilty to felony murder charges.
Authorities arrested another man, 23-year-old Luis Chavira, in the slaying on Jan. 12.
Garcia died at a hospital days after he was shot in the head and leg while he was in a car on Interstate 215.
Authorities originally thought the shooting was an act of road rage, but in court documents, a man indicated it stemmed from an illegal-immigrant smuggling deal gone bad.
Gregorio Hernandez, 32, said he was driving the car in which the boy was riding along with two illegal immigrants and a friend, who planned to hand over the immigrants to family members in exchange for $40 each.
A dispute arose when they stopped in a parking lot to make the transfer with people in a second car, leading to a 10-mile chase during which shots were fired, Hernandez said.
22 people taken into custody at suspected immigrant drophouse
PHOENIX -- Nearly two dozen people believed to be illegal immigrants, including a pregnant woman, were taken into custody Monday evening after an assault victim led authorities to a suspected drophouse.
At least one of the 22 people taken from the home was a suspected smuggler of the immigrants, said Sgt. Andy Hill, a Phoenix police spokesman.
Hill said police responded to a 911 call Monday afternoon that a man was beaten by three other men who then fled in a truck.
The victim later led police to the nearby drophouse and said there were a number of people inside including two men with weapons, according to Hill.
Police units surrounded the west Phoenix home and got all the people out safely but did not find any weapons other than a pit bull inside, Hill said.
Migrant was likely killed by border bandits, officials say

Jan 29, 2:04 PM EST
TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) -- An illegal immigrant whose body was found last week in southern Arizona was likely shot by border bandits in July, a sheriff's department spokeswoman said Monday.
A man crossing the border illegally found the body of a friend Wednesday and called the victim's family. The family called Mexican officials, who called U.S. authorities and touched off a search to recover the body, which was found Friday.
Pima County Sheriff's Deputy Dawn Barkman said that in July, a group of illegal immigrants was approached by border bandits as they were crossing in an area about 25 miles south of Tucson that is known for bandit activity. Gangs of bandits roam various areas along the Arizona-Mexico border to prey on migrants crossing the border.
The migrants scattered to try to escape the bandits, Barkman said.

Border agents arrest rape suspect and sex offender,
seize several marijuana loads
By Nathan Olivarez-Giles
Tucson, Arizona Published: 01.30.2007
A Mexican national, accused of raping a child, and a registered sex offender were arrested in separate incidents Sunday by Border Patrol agents, officials said.
Numerous drug seizures were also made by federal officers along the border in the past several days.
Diego Figueroa-Martinez, 21, is wanted on charges of rape in West Valley City, Utah, said Gustavo Soto, a patrol spokes-man.
Agents arrested Figueroa-Martinez near the village of Topawa southwest of Tucson. He was taken to the Pinal County jail to await extradition to Utah, Soto said.
Agents also arrested Jose Tenorio-Gonzalez, a registered sex offender in Illinois, on Sunday morning on Arizona 83 southeast of Tucson, Soto said.

How The UK Threatens US Security – Part One
Adrian Morgan
That Britain should be the biggest threat to the US is, sadly, true.
Britain has allowed radical Muslims to preach in the country for two decades, influencing successive generations of Muslim youth. The agencies responsible for this situation are the judiciary, the political executive, the security agencies (MI5 and MI6) and the police. Recently, the signs that these bodies are becoming less prepared to practically deal with extremism suggest a future in which Britain will give more freedom to the radicals on its soil. These dangerous policies could eventually destroy what is left of the "special relationship" between Britain and the United States.

Russia: Chief Mufti Threatens "Conflict" If Russian Orthodox Culture Course Is Taught in Schools
Ravil Gainutdin, the head of Russia's Council of Muftis, lashed out today at plans by the Russian government to introduce a course on the culture of Christian Orthodoxy.
Over the past 1,000 years, nearly all Russian culture, even secular, has been infused by Orthodoxy. One can easily make the argument that if the state fails to cover the importance of Orthodoxy in the country's history and culture, then it is neglecting its duty to properly educate children about their nation's heritage.
As a devout Muslim and follower of the 7th century Arabian warlord, Mohammed,
Gainutdin issued threats in an attempt to intimidate and blackmail the Russian state.
"If this one-sided decision to teach the culture of one religion will be accepted, you (the Russian Education Ministry) will have laid a bomb for the decade ahead, and conflict is inevitable," said Gainutdin in a letter to the Education Ministry.
His threat of conflict was followed by his old demand that Russia create a special department for "Muslim Affairs."
BTW: during Western Resistance's fact-finding mission to Ingushetia and Chechnya in the autumn, we visited public schools, and Islam was being propagated there. For instance, all children were forced to obey Muslim dietary laws and other traditions.
Also, it's interesting that Gainutdin didn't come back with the idea to teach Muslim "culture". Well, there pretty much is no such thing. (If you don't believe me, just visit the "Islamic Art" section at any one of the world's major museums and see how small it is). Islam has made a minimal contribution to world culture. And any culture that arose on lands groaning under the Sword of Islam occured in spite of the Mohammedan cult, and not because of it.

Islamofascist word of the day: MUTA'A

'Pleasure marriages' regain popularity in Iraq
By Rick Jervis, USA TODAY Posted 5/4/2005
BAGHDAD — In the days when it could land him in jail, Rahim Al-Zaidi would whisper details of his muta'a only to his closest confidants and the occasional cousin. Never his wife.
Rahim Al-Zaidi, who is married with five children, is awaiting permission for his third 'pleasure marriage.'
Al-Zaidi hopes to soon finalize his third muta'a, or "pleasure marriage," with a green-eyed neighbor. This time, he talks about it openly and with obvious relish. Even so, he says, he probably still won't tell his wife.
The 1,400-year-old practice of muta'a— "ecstasy" in Arabic — is as old as Islam itself. It was permitted by the prophet Mohammed as a way to ensure a respectable means of income for widowed women.

Thailand "considers" Sharia law in troubled Muslim south

Two teachers killed, set ablaze in Thailand's Muslim south

BANGKOK : Thailand is considering introducing elements of Sharia law in the troubled Muslim-majority south in an effort to quell the bloody insurgency raging there, the premier said on Wednesday.
Surayud Chulanont said his government, installed after a coup last September, wanted the justice system in the three provinces of Yala, Narathiwat and Pattani to be more in line with Islamic law.
"My government will improve the justice system to make the system more reliable, and we are considering bringing in parts of Sharia law," he told a seminar of Thai diplomats and ambassadors based in Muslim countries, who had travelled to Bangkok for the meeting.
"Sharia law is already in place for family issues such as divorce. The Justice Ministry is studying what additional measures can be introduced," he told reporters after the meeting.
He rejected suggestions that the unrest in the provinces bordering Malaysia was connected to an international terrorism movement, but admitted that the militants had used religion to galvanise support.
More than 1,800 people, both Buddhist and Muslim, have been killed in the southernmost provinces - which were an independent Malay sultanate until 1902 - since the latest insurgency broke out three years ago.
"The current unrest in the south has nothing to do with terrorism," Surayud said.

Why ruin a nice Blood Festival with all that violence? Can't Muslims maim their children in the name of Islam without it having to get messy?

On Shiites' holiest day, 44 dead in Iraq
By KIM GAMEL, Associated Press Writer 15 minutes ago
BAGHDAD, Iraq - Assailants struck Shiite worshippers in three Iraqi cities Tuesday, killing at least 39 people in bombings and ambushes during the climax of ceremonies marking Ashoura, the holiest day in the Shiite calendar. In apparent retaliation, mortar shells slammed into predominantly Sunni neighborhoods in Baghdad hours later, killing at least five people and wounding 20, officials said.
The bloodiest attack Tuesday occurred when a suicide bomber blew himself up among a crowd of worshippers entering a Shiite mosque, killing 19 people and wounding 54 in Mandali, a predominantly Shiite city northeast of Baghdad and near the Iranian border.
To the north, a bomb in a garbage can exploded as scores of Shiites — most them Kurds — were performing rituals in Khanaqin, a majority Kurdish city also near the Iranian border. At least 13 people were killed and 39 were wounded, police Maj. Idriss Mohammed said.
"I was participating in Ashoura ceremonies with my son and all of a sudden the bloodshed hit," Abdul Jasim Hassan said, holding his 11-year-old son, Hussein, whose right leg was bleeding.

David Sipe is a once convicted criminal who can honestly say he "didn't do it."
"Relief. Relief. After 7 years, it's gone. It's over." The ex-border patrol agent gets a 2001 guilty verdict overturned in his retrial for civil rights violations against a smuggler.
The incident dates back to April of 2000 in Penitas. "He was striking me in the side... he was very close to my weapon... and I had to do what I could to control the situation as fast as I could." Fearing for his life, David subdues the smuggler by hitting him with his flashlight. It results in staples to the smugglers head. A border patrol investigation is launched and deems his actions inappropriate -- even illegal.
"I don't know how they're able to do that... but I don't think that's fair."
Neither did a jury who overturns his conviction from the first trial against him. David says the government, who he faithfully worked under for nearly 4 years, turns its back on him while rolling out the red carpet, as he puts it, for the illegals turned witnesses. "They got to stay here and work in our country."
The smuggler even gets a government settlement. "80 thousand dollars... he now has his own ranch in Mexico."
As for David -- he doesn't collect a thing. In fact, his life and family gets ripped apart. "My house foreclosed on after having to file bankruptcy, my children having to live through this... of course my wife divorcing me."

You Renegade Republican Rebels, You!

I found the following post at a site I would like to recommend...
Excerpt Of The Day: The Only True Form Of Rebellion Left On This Planet Is Conservatism
"When one becomes a liberal, he or she pretends to advocate tolerance, equality and peace, but hilariously, they're doing so for purely selfish reasons. It's the human equivalent of a puppy dog's face: an evolutionary tool designed to enhance survival, reproductive value and status.
In short, liberalism is based on one central desire: to look cool in front of others in order to get love. Preaching tolerance makes you look cooler, than saying something like, "please lower my taxes." This is why the only true form of rebellion left on this planet is conservatism. Conservatism, by rejecting the trademark forms of romantic rebellion (anarchy, activism, nipple rings) turns out to be far more subversive than anything on the planet. The conservative, every day, knows that he or she says things that aren't considered cool among the media elite. Yet the conservative still comes out and says it. This is why, Dick Cheney is closer to the Hell's Angels than Hunter S. Thompson ever could be." -- Greg Gutfeld (


If We Fail... Been there, done that.
by Victor Davis Hanson
National Review Online
January 19, 2007
Most Americans accept that if the United States cannot stabilize Iraq, and, in frustration and acrimony, withdraws in defeat, crises follow. The only disagreement is over how bad they will be.
Some point to the aftermath of Vietnam and, mirabile dictu, think the world eventually went on pretty much the same. In this rosy view, the preordained end of the Cold War made the communist postwar Vietnamese increasingly entrepreneurial, and thus more pro-American than friendly to their erstwhile Chinese patrons.
Others, more soberly I think, recall instead in the interval the million-plus of boat-people, exiles, the executed, and detained — and the aftershocks that killed millions more in Afghanistan, Cambodia, and Central America, once it was established that the United States would not, or could not, thwart Communist aggression. The Iranian hostage-taking and the rise of radical Islam itself were predicated on the idea that a post-Vietnam America would not intervene against terrorists, whether in Tehran or Lebanon. And Vietnam, of course, today is no South Korea, as millions there without freedom could attest.
The Ripple Effect
Be that as it may, we sometimes forget that there are also more insidious ripples that can emanate from Iraq. I can think of three for starters, all with post-Vietnam echoes...

The Sense of Good: American confidence necessary to succeed in a war for freedom.

by Bruce Thornton, Private Papers
January 6, 2007
... No one has "failed" yet, and it is a sign of our collective failure of nerve that we want to quit in the middle of the game. But it is not we who are "failing." Hussein and his WMD capacity are gone, and a lethal threat has been removed. If worst comes to worst and Iraq doesn’t stabilize, a fractured Iraq that looks like Lebanon will still be preferable to a regime controlled by a psychotic Saddam Hussein flush with oil money and ultimately freed, as he likely would have been, from U.N. sanctions and weapons inspectors.
The fact is, it is the Iraqi people who are failing, the Arabs who are failing, and Muslims who are failing. The same cultural pathologies that keep Palestinian Arabs sullen welfare clients, that keep Lebanon a political basket-case, that keep millions of Middle-Eastern Muslims mired in poverty and oppression and ignorance and gender apartheid, are the same forces that are keeping Iraqis in some Road Warrior dystopia - not our blunders, cultural insensitivity, arrogance, or whatever other excuse concocted by self-loathing Americans.
No, Iraq is failing because too many Muslims love sectarian hatred, love resentment and envy of a successful infidel West, and love their belief in their own God-sanctioned superiority and righteousness more than they love freedom, prosperity and human rights. We have spent American lives and money to give Muslim Arabs a chance to create a better life, and they are blowing it, all the while neighboring Muslim nations either sit on their hands or actively support the forces destroying that opportunity.
But a willingness to acknowledge and assert our superiority, despite our flaws, to a culture and religion that validate blowing up and torturing one’s fellows, is sorely lacking even among those who should know better. And that is what emboldens the enemy. He sees our impossible expectations and our utopian standards of action, but to him these are not the signs of the sophisticated, sensitive, “nuanced” sensibility that we fancy we are displaying. Rather, they are the symptoms of cultural weakness and spiritual corruption. So he fights on, confident that more explosions, more grisly footage, more exploitation of false guilt and moral exhaustion will help him prevail.
And if we don’t recover that ardent belief in the superiority of freedom and individual rights — the same faith that conquered fascist and communist tyranny — he just may be right.

File this under "Superstition is their weakness"...

This gives me some ideas... for instance, the most p.c. of which would be to let them make their own vaccines... (but some more diabolical plans are rattling around in the back of my mind.)
Muslim urged to shun 'unholy' vaccines
Abul Taher
The Sunday Times
January 28, 2007
A MUSLIM doctors’ leader has provoked an outcry by urging British Muslims not to vaccinate their children against diseases such as measles, mumps and rubella because it is “un-Islamic”.
Dr Abdul Majid Katme, head of the Islamic Medical Association, is telling Muslims that almost all vaccines contain products derived from animal and human tissue, which make them “haram”, or unlawful for Muslims to take.Islam permits only the consumption of halal products, where the animal has had its throat cut and bled to death while God’s name is invoked.
. . .
He argued that leading “Islamically healthy lives” would be enough to ward off illnesses and diseases.
“You see, God created us perfect and with a very strong defence system. If you breast-feed your child for two years — as the Koran says — and you eat Koranic food like olives and black seed, and you do ablution each time you pray, then you will have a strong defence system,” he said.
“Many vaccines, especially those given to children, are full of haram substances — human parts, gelatine from pork, alcohol, animal/monkey parts, all coming from the West who do not have knowledge of halal or haram. It is forbidden in Islam to have any of these haram substances in our bodies.”

Muslims 'about to take over Europe'
Jan. 29, 2007 0:20 Updated Jan. 29, 2007 16:59
Islam could soon be the dominant force in a Europe which, in the name of political correctness, has abdicated the battle for cultural and religious control, Prof. Bernard Lewis, the world-renowned Middle Eastern and Islamic scholar, said on Sunday.
The Muslims "seem to be about to take over Europe," Lewis said at a special briefing with the editorial staff of The Jerusalem Post.
Asked what this meant for the continent's Jews, he responded, "The outlook for the Jewish communities of Europe is dim." Soon, he warned, the only pertinent question regarding Europe's future would be, "Will it be an Islamized Europe or Europeanized Islam?" The growing sway of Islam in Europe was of particular concern given the rising support within the Islamic world for extremist and terrorist movements, said Lewis.
Lewis, whose numerous books include the recent What Went Wrong?: The Clash Between Islam and Modernity in the Middle East, and The Crisis of Islam: Holy War and Unholy Terror, would set no timetable for this drastic shift in Europe, instead focusing on the process, which he said would be assisted by "immigration and democracy." Instead of fighting the threat, he elaborated, Europeans had given up.
. . .
The threat of extremist Islam goes far beyond Europe, Lewis stressed, turning to the potential impact of Iran going nuclear under its current regime.

Khomeini's Teachings on sex with infants and animals here
hat tip Michael
Islamic Teachings on sex with infants:
"A man can have sexual pleasure from a child as young as a baby. However, he should not penetrate. If he penetrates and the child is harmed then he should be responsible for her subsistence all her life. This girl, however would not count as one of his four permanent wives. The man will not be eligible to marry the girl's sister."
The complete Persian text of this saying can be found in "Ayatollah Khomeini in Tahrirolvasyleh, Fourth Edition, Darol Elm, Qom"
Islamic Teachings on sex with animals:
"The meat of horses, mules, or donkeys is not recommended. It is strictly forbidden if the animal was sodomized while alive by a man. In that case, the animal must be taken outside the city and sold."
"If one commits an act of sodomy with a cow, a ewe, or a camel, their urine and their excrements become impure, and even their milk may no longer be consumed. The animal must then be killed as quickly as possible and burned, and the price of it paid to its owner by him who sodomized it."
"It is forbidden to consume the excrement of animals or their nasal secretions. But if such are mixed in minute proportions into other foods their consumption is not forbidden."
"If a man (God protect him from it!) fornicates with an animal and ejaculates, ablution is necessary."
"A man can have sex with animals such as sheeps, cows, camels and so on. However, he should kill the animal after he has his orgasm. He should not sell the meat to the people in his own village; however, selling the meat to the next door village should be fine."

TRAIL OF TERROR: Islamic exhortations to violence defended
Authorities investigate sermons supporting jihad, martyrdom

The Australian government, whose leaders have invited Muslims who believe religious law should trump the nation's secular constitution to leave, now has launched an investigation into recordings of messages urging Muslims to kill enemies of Islam.
According to a report in the daily newspaper The Australian, members of the Federal Police force have begun looking into the DVD recordings by Sheik Feiz Mohamed. They collected a copy of the recordings recently from a 4,000-member Muslim youth center founded by Mohamed.
Officers who arrived at the Global Islamic Youth Center at Liverpool, in Sydney's western suburbs, declined to comment, but Muslims are defending even the references to violence and martyrdom in the messages.

Americans are scarificed on the alter of multiculturalism and corporate greed - on our own soil every single day... while advocates for illegal immigrants demand more and more special privilages for their own people.

It's the North American Union, stupid... Part 11... TOLD YA SO!

Two years ago the Council on Foreign Relations published a report titled "Building a North America Community." among the goals expressed, to break down trade regulations between the United States and Canada, between Canada and Mexico and of course, then the United States. But without congressional approval or certainly without congressional oversight or voter approval.
Critics call the plan the North America Union. And many say that it would ultimately destroy U.S. sovereignty.
Robert Pastor is a member of the group that broke the original report, which stated: "The Task Force's central recommendation is establishment by 2010 of a North American economic and security of community, the boundaries of which would be defined by a common external tariff and an outer security perimeter."
Paster said: "I think the vision defined in that report is one of three sovereign nations cooperating with each other to deepen economic integration, to create a common external tariff, to improve our economies and to secure ourselves better." Pastor also said "we ought to have on a national level [a discussion] about how to relate to our neighbors to enhance our security and enhance our prosperity."
But we already have a $75 billion trade deficit with Canada and a $50 billion trade deficit with Mexico.
Documents obtained by Judicial Watch reveal a more sinister plot:
"While a vision is appealing, working on the infrastructure might yield more benefit and bring more people on board, evolution by stealth."
Rep. Virgil Goode, R-Va., has introduced a House resolution expressing congressional opposition to construction of a NAFTA Super Highway System or entry into a North American Union with Mexico and Canada. Goode said the goal behind House Concurrent Resolution 40, introduced Monday, is "to block a NAFTA Superhighway System and to indicate the opposition of the Congress to the Security and Prosperity Partnership (SPP) of North America that was declared by President Bush, Mexico's then-President Vicente Fox, and Canada's then-Prime Minister Paul Martin, at the conclusion of their summit meeting in Waco, Texas, on March 23, 2005." The preamble of HCR 40 refers to the Trans-Texas Corridor being built by the Texas Department of Transportation, noting "a NAFTA Super Highway System from the west coast of Mexico through the United States and into Canada has been suggested as part of a North American Union to facilitate trade between the SPP countries."

This is not their country. How dare they come here and tell us how to run our country?

Gloria Saucedo is not an American. She may retain American Citizenship, but she is not an American.
She should have no say in how we run our country. She is only interested in special privilages for her own people. She is in no way interested in what is best for America or Americans.
I am sick of foreigners coming here and telling us what we are and what our country should be... and trying to make it what they want it to be.

Illegal alien advocacy groups tonight are demanding that the federal government stop altogether the arrest and deportations of illegal aliens.
The illegal alien lobby also wants permanent U.S. residency for every illegal alien already in this country.
The advocacy groups appear to be funded by so-called immigrant rights foundations supported by corporate America, as well as by membership fees, of course.
Gloria Saucedo of Hermandad Mexicana said: "We come here to request the president to stop the deportation in the race because it's not good for the country ."
The National Alliance of Latin American and Caribbean Communities is in Washington, D.C., lobbying lawmakers to support its so-called new course on immigration reform. Among its demands, unlimited amnesty for illegal aliens.

578 killed in the name of honour
Amir Mir Tuesday, January 09, 2007 23:14 IST
LAHORE: A total of 578 Pakistanis including 362 women and 216 men were killed across Pakistan in the name of honour between January and December 2006, figures compiled by the Ministry of Interior reveal.
Compiled on the request of the Federal Women Division, the report places the number of honour killings in Pakistan at around 2,500 to 3,000 cases every year.
The report, however, adds that a good number of honour killing cases still go unreported or are passed off as suicides.
Not more than 25 per cent honour killing cases are brought to justice, states the report while calling for tougher laws on domestic violence.
Under Pakistani penal code, honour killings are treated as murder. However, the relevant law states that the family of the victim is allowed to compromise with the killer who is usually a close relative in most of the cases. Provisions of Pakistani law also allow the next of kin of the victim to forgive the murderer in exchange for money. And most of the offenders continue to use this clause to escape punishment.

'Racist' hammer attack at school
January 12, 2007
PARENTS spoke of their shock and disgust today after a 15-year-old boy was attacked with a hammer at his school by an Asian gang.
The pupil was left lying in a pool of blood after he was set upon by a gang of at least four Asian men at the Ridgeway School in Wroughton, near Swindon, Wiltshire, at around 4pm yesterday.
The teenager, who has not been named, was taken to Swindon Great Western Hospital where his condition was today described as stable.
Eight men have been arrested and are being questioned at Gable Cross police station in the town.
Parents arriving at the modern comprehensive school today to drop their children off admitted they were worried about pupil safety following the attack.
One mother said her son had been attacked by Asians and claimed racism was rife in the school.
“This was a racist attack,” she said. “The school has a racism problem. Is it going to take one of our children to die before they do something?”
Another mum added: “It’s incredible this could happen on school grounds in broad daylight.
“It’s horrific. It makes you wonder whether you are doing the right thing by making your children go to school today.”
A father of two, who stopped outside the school gates to drop off his 15-year-old, said: “I’ve heard there’s been some racial problems between the white kids and the Asian kids. I hope this doesn’t kick something off.”
The injured boy, who is white, was set upon at the end of the school day by a gang of Asian men, who jumped out of a car and pinned down the teenager on the school’s tennis courts. He is thought to have been hit several times with a hammer.
According to local sources, the men who carried out the attack were the family of another pupil at the comprehensive school.
Later a group of around 20 parents confronted Mr Colledge outside the school entrance and demanded action.
Headmaster Steve Colledge, who was patrolling the school grounds when the boy was assaulted, said he was not aware of any racial tension within the school between pupils on a day-by-day basis.

Pakistan Detains Christian Woman For "Insulting" Islam
ISLAMABAD, PAKISTAN — A Christian married mother with six children remained detained in a Pakistani jail Thursday, January 25, and could face the death penalty for allegedly insulting Islam, her supporters told BosNewsLife.
Police took Martha Bibi into custody late Monday, January 22, in the town of Kot Nanak Singh in District Kasur, southeast of the city of Lahore, after the local Imam urged Muslims to attack the Christian family saying "Martha uttered derogatory words against the Holy Prophet Muhammad," said the All Pakistan Minorities Alliance (APMA) advocacy group.
"On hearing the continuous announcement [from the mosque] and voices of people outside who were gathered to attack her home, Martha’s family left to hide in one of the neighboring houses," APMA said. However soon, "police came and arrested Martha Bibi."
She was charged under section 295 C of Pakistan’s controversial Blasphemy Law and could face the death penalty if convicted, APMA. In many cases Christians have however received long prison sentences. Bibi has denied the charges.
Police apparently detained her after on false accusations of blasphemy made by local Muslims, suggested APMA, which is providing legal assistance to the woman. APMA investigators said the problems began when Marti Bibi asked for money from Muslim men working in the Mosque with material they rented from her husband’s construction shop.
The men refused to pay the rent and instead started to beat her, APMA said, citing local sources in the region, an area where about 12 Christian families live among 500 Muslim families.
"On the intervention of local passersby, she was freed and returned home," APMA said, before being arrested later in the day by local police.

Montreal man refuses religious divorce to Muslim wife he stabbed
Dene Moore, Canadian PressPublished: Friday, January 26, 2007
MONTREAL (CP) - The Crown says a Montreal man's refusal to grant his Muslim wife a Shariah divorce should be considered an aggravating factor when he is sentenced Friday for stabbing her and their baby daughter.
Other than that, there is nothing the courts can do for the woman, whose husband pleaded guilty to two counts of aggravated assault to avoid attempted murder charges.
That, say advocates, is the problem with the refusal to recognize Shariah law in the Canadian judicial system.

U.N. says Iran plans nuclear development
By GEORGE JAHN, Associated Press Writer 39 minutes ago
DAVOS, Switzerland
Iran expects to start installing thousands of centrifuges in an underground facility next month, the head of the U.N. nuclear watchdog agency said Friday. The installation would pave the way to large-scale uranium enrichment, a potential way of making nuclear weapons.
On the sidelines of the World Economic Forum', Mohamed ElBaradei said: "I understand that they are going to announce that they are going to build up their 3,000 centrifuge facility ... sometime next month."
He did not elaborate. But U.N. officials, who demanded anonymity because the information was confidential, emphasized that Iran had not officially said it would embark on the assembly of what will initially be 3,000 centrifuges at Natanz. But they said senior officials have informally told the International Atomic Energy Agency the work would begin next month.
Iran ultimately plans to expand its enrichment program to 54,000 centrifuges, which spin uranium gas into enriched material to produce nuclear fuel. That would give it the capacity to produce dozens of nuclear warheads a year, if it chose to develop weapons.

China Sacrifices Chinese Tradition to Appease Muslims...

Year of the bleep
Sydney Morning Herald
Jan 25, 2007
China's ruling Communist Party has banned images and mention of pigs in TV advertisements airing over the lunar new year to avoid offending the country's Muslims, an advertising agency said on Friday.
"We were told by the CCTV (China Central Television) censorship team that the CCTV advertising department announced a new regulation on pigs in its internal document," an executive at the Shanghai-based Mindshare agency said.
The ban also applies to cartoons and traditional paper-cut images of pigs, and to slogans such as "golden pig brings you fortune" and "wish you a happy pig year", the executive said.
He said the decision was taken "in order to avoid nationality conflicts" and issued by Li Changchun, a top party propaganda official and a member of the party's elite Politburo.
"The regulation only applies to advertisements," a staff member in the CCTV advertising department said, refusing to answer further questions.
CCTV and other state broadcasters normally run dozens of popular variety shows and other special programs before and during the one-week national holiday to mark the lunar new year.
The Year of the Pig begins on February 18.

Islamophobia? Not so fast
By Hugh Fitzgerald
"Analysts both in the Muslim and the Western world by and large agree that “fear” and lack of objective dialogue are the root cause of Islamophobia and Anti-Americanism." – a statement by Abukar Arman in this article
Not so fast, buster. The word "Islamophobia" is not an acceptable term for intelligent apprehensions over Islam. For Islam is for its adherents a total belief-system whose central and moving idea is that of a complete division between Believer and Infidel.
It asks of Believers that they offer their sole loyalty to Islam as a Total System, and to the Jihad, furthered through many conceivable instruments, to spread the dominance of Islam to lands that for now may still be under Infidel rule.
Believers are also to ensure that dominance of Islam by removing "all obstacles" to its spread. They are to ensure that Muslims rule, and not just here or there, not just in the lands now part of Dar al-Islam or once part of Dar al-Islam, but everywhere.

Obama's Radical "Racist" Church

Obama says that rather than advising him on strategy, Wright helps keep his priorities straight and his moral compass calibrated."What I value most about Pastor Wright is not his day-to-day political advice," Obama said. "He’s much more of a sounding board for me to make sure that I am speaking as truthfully about what I believe as possible and that I’m not losing myself in some of the hype and hoopla and stress that’s involved in national politics."
The rebellious son of a Baptist minister, Wright was hired by Trinity United when he could find no Baptist church to take him. The congregation on 95th Street, then numbering just 87, had recently adopted the motto "Unashamedly black and unapologetically Christian." They did not mind his fiery red Afro and black power agenda…
As noted in our earlier article, Barack Obama is a member of a radical church that preaches Afrocentrism, racism and Bush-bashing.
Here is a video from
YouTube that purports to be a sermon from Obama’s pastor, the Reverend Jeremiah A. Wright, Jr.:
and a transcript of one of Wright's sermons from
God Has Got To Be Sick Of This Shit!
[Joined in progress] … Justice is ignored. When women are treated like, or are permitted by this society to be called publicly "bitches," justice is ignored.
And on that note, on that note, let me paraphrase Dr. Anthony Campolo, one of the nation’s greatest preachers.
He said something to this effect:
Fact number one: we’ve got more black men in prison than there are in college.
Racism is alive and well. Racism is the American way.
Racism is how this country was founded, and how this country is still run.
No black man can ever be President. I don’t care how hard you run Jesse.
No black woman will ever be considered for anything outside of what she can give with her body.
Fact number three: America is still the number one killer in the world.
We invaded Grenada for no other reason than to get Maurice Bishop. We destroyed Panama because Noriega would no longer dance to our tune anymore.
We are deeply involved in the importing of drugs, the exporting of guns and the training professional killers.
We bombed Cambodia, Iraq and Nicaragua, killing women and children, while trying to turn public opinion against Castro and Qaddafi.
Fact number four: we put Mandela in prison and supported apartheid the whole 27 years he was there.
We believe in white supremacy and black inferiority. And believe it more than we believe in God.
Fact number five: we supported Zionism shamelessly while ignoring the Palestinians, and branding anybody who spoke out against it as being anti-Semitic.
Fact number six: we conducted radiation experiments on our own people. You’re just finding out about that. We care nothing about human life, if the end justifies the means.
Fact number seven: we do not care if poor black and brown children cannot read and kill each other senselessly. We abandoned the cities back in the sixties when the riots started, and it really doesn’t matter what those nnn… [niggers] "natives" do to each other.
We gave up on them and public education for poor people who live in the projects. We with VCRs, DVDs, CDs and portable phones have more homeless than any nation in the world.
Fact number eight: we started the AIDS virus, and now that it is out of control we still put more money in the military than in medicine. More money in hate than humanitarian concerns.
Everybody does not have access to health care. I don’t care what the rich white boys in the cities say.
[Garbled] listen up. If you are poor black and elderly — forget it.
Fact number nine: we only able to maintain our level of living by making sure the Third World people live in grinding poverty.
Fact number ten: we are selfish, self-centered ego egotists, who are arrogant and ignorant.
We pray at church and do not try to make the kingdom that Jesus talked about a reality.
And, and, and… in light of these in fact God has got to be sick of this shit!
Thanks for clearing that up Reverend. I had no idea I was so inherently evil. I'll start acting like a racsist right away... mainly by talking like you but substituting the word "white" for "black". That'll do it.

California Latinos fearful after immigration raids
Thu Jan 25, 2007 3:13pm ET
By Tim Gaynor
LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Cook Rosa Maria Salazar's eyes dart anxiously to the door as customers file into the Salvadoran cafe in a heavily Hispanic neighborhood near downtown Los Angeles.
"We're terrified. The police could come for us at any time and deport us," she said in Spanish earlier this week as diners fingered maize tortillas stuffed with beans and pork scratchings and chatted softly.
The 55-year-old undocumented worker from Guatemala is among many Hispanics deeply shaken by recent immigration raids at the heart of Latino communities in southern California.
The-seven day Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) sweep, dubbed "Operation Return to Sender," targeted jails across five counties in the Los Angeles area, where police took 423 of what they called "criminal aliens" into federal custody for deportation, after being held on charges unrelated to their immigration status.
Federal agents from seven teams also fanned out in local communities, where they nabbed 338 undocumented immigrants, more than 150 of whom were classed as "immigration fugitives" -- foreign nationals who ignored final deportation orders.

There, but for the grace of God, goes the USA.

Islam flexes its muscles... and Ms Kelly is surprised?
Peter Hitchens
Daily Mail
12:12pm 20th August 2006
The real menace to this country does not come from terrorist bombs, which a calm, resolute people can cope with. It comes from the liberal elite's decision to appease Islam.
The louder the Blairites talk about the 'threat to our way of life' from Muslim extremists, the more they themselves increase that threat.
Criticism of Islam, jokes about Islam, are rapidly becoming taboo, even legally restricted. Yet Muslims have total freedom to say what they like about the rest of us.
Quietly, the Civil Service, the police and the education system (and many big companies) have already begun to adapt themselves to the idea of an Islamised Britain.
Was Ruth Kelly, Minister for Political Correctness, really shocked when a group of Muslim lobbyists abruptly demanded partial recognition of Sharia Law and the official celebration of major Muslim holy days?
She shouldn't have been.
Any observer of what is happening in this country would have known this demand was coming. It will be made with increasing force as the Muslim population grows and the Muslim vote - already decisive in many constituencies - grows with it, because all the major parties are without principles and will do anything for votes.

Top Ten Reasons Why the US Should Not Marry Mexico
By Brenda Walker
January 17, 2007
You wouldn't marry your next door neighbor just because of that person's convenient location. Why then are Washington elites working to dissolve sovereignty in order to unify with a third-world sewer best known for corruption, violence, poverty, sexism and apathy toward education?
. . .
The only answer is Mexico's enormous supply of cheap, exploitable labor, which business wants to fuel the neo-slave economy of its dreams. But the cultures of the peoples of Mexico and the United States are deeply incompatible, and have a history of bad blood going back centuries...
#9 Mexican sexism ranks close to the Taliban.
#8 Crime and violence are increasing as the state fails.
#7 Lynching remains a continuing practice.
#6 Mexican dislike for education lasts for generations.
#5 Drunk driving is deemed acceptable, even considered desirably macho.
#4 Animal cruelty is no problema.
#3 Mexicans are racist.
#2 Mexican corruption is endemic.
#1 Mexicans are Marxicans.
Americans have a totally different cultural background, including a belief that progress is possible. (See Prof Lawrence Harrison's fascinating analysis of progress-prone vs. progress-averse cultures, also organized as a chart.) As Samuel Huntington remarked, "... if America had been settled not by British Protestants but by French, Spanish, or Portuguese Catholics, it would not be America; it would be Quebec, Mexico, or Brazil.""
Throughout our history, Americans have worked to improve the rule of law and expand gender and racial equality. We value scholarship and scientific inquiry. Our concept of "family values" includes educating young people for many years rather than sending them out into the workplace at age 14 or encouraging teen marriage for girls. A closer integration of the Mexican and America cultures would be completely negative for America and destructive to our tradition of fairness under law.
Mexifornication has been a step backward. The unassimilated millions of Mexicans in this country bring with them their culture's violence, disinterest in education, historic corruption and gender inequality.
On the basis of culture alone—forgetting about the drug cartels, financial cost to American taxpayers, threats to public health, the danger from political Aztlan and the normalization of treason—the idea is the worst ever to emanate from Washington.

UK: Toxins ban to beat terrorist threat

At the same time Westerners everywhere keep their heads buried claiming (wishing) the war isn't real and that there is no credible threat from Islam and its zombie-like followers.
Daily Telegraph
By Laura Clout
Last Updated: 2:34 am GMT 25/01/2007
Ministers are planning to restrict the use of nearly 60 types of toxins and pathogens amid increasing concern over the biological threat from terrorists.
Two months ago the head of MI5, Dame Eliza Manningham-Buller, warned that al-Qa'eda terrorists were plotting mass casualty suicide attacks and would unleash chemical or biological attacks given the chance.
The Home Office yesterday moved to meet that threat by publishing orders which will ban people from holding samples of viruses such as rabies, polio, influenza and herpes B.
They add three types of salmonella bacteria and two types of poisonous fungi to a list contained in the Anti-terrorism, Crime and Security Act 2001.
The Home Office minister Tony McNulty said last night: "The terror threat is always changing and we must adapt to ensure it is combated effectively. As terrorists look for new ways to endanger life, we have to take action to be one step ahead."
In her speech at Queen Mary’s College, London, in November, Dame Eliza said that an estimated 200 groups of more than 1,600 individuals were actively engaged in plotting terror attacks in the UK and abroad.
