The President has not signed the immigration bill during the summer recess as some feared, but he certainly has not given up on it.  If it is about the destruction of America, he will be reliable.  

In fact, 11 million illegal immigrants in America are enjoying all kind of aids and privileges,
especially,the outrageous Supreme Court order that has granted vote to illegal immigrants in American elections WITHOUT documentation, means that a de facto immigration has already taken place.  

The rest will only be a formality.  Those who have entered America breaking the laws of immigration, instead of being punished, will be rewarded.

Obama continues pulling the strings among his friends and donors to help him achieve his goals.  Among them, the political action group founded by one of Mr. Obama’s supporters, Mark Zuckerberg, the creator of Facebook; the National Immigration Forum; and the Partnership for a New American Economy, led by Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg of New York, Rupert Murdoch and Bill Marriott Jr.  They have joined in their quest to help the President crush public opinion with their arguments and influence and policymakers to pass a most comprehensive immigration reform.

Their agenda is set as the “partnership [to] enable Mayors and CEOs to demonstrate to policymakers the vital role that immigration plays in our economy by publishing studies, conducting polls, convening forums, and sponsoring public education campaigns."  

Given that people such as Zuckerberg, Bloomberg and Murdoch are involved, the weight of their influence almost guarantee the success of this endeavor.
Yesterday, in an unprecedented move, a group of Utah business leaders confronted several members of their state’s congressional delegation as they all waited to board their flight to Washington D.C. last Monday at the Salt Lake City airport.  The businessmen were urging House Republicans to take up a broad immigration overhaul.  “Our plea is to act now, do it now, lead,” Stan Lockhart, a former chairman of the Utah Republican Party, said Tuesday in an interview as he explained the group’s basic pitch. “Ask House leadership to lead, and let’s pass what’s possible now.”  Randy Parker, chief executive of the Utah Farm Bureau Federation, chimed in: “They need to act now. That’s the bottom line.”

Why would such a coalition of business executives, evangelical groups and prominent conservatives come together to urge House Republicans to put broad immigration legislation on the House floor, “ideally before the end of this year?”

They were not alone.  There was also another larger group of more than 600 leaders from roughly 40 states who descended on Capitol Hill for meetings with nearly 150 Republican lawmakers who they expect to support a broad immigration overhaul, including some sort of legal status for the 11 million immigrants in the country illegally.

When conservative business leaders urge lawmakers to take a more proactive role in pushing immigration legislation to a House vote, one must wonder what is in there for them when they are demanding their lawmakers to  “ actually create dialogue and create discussion and tell leadership in the House that we’re not interested in waiting two years — we need to address this now.”  The urge is certain to please President Obama, Zuckerberg, Bloomberg, Murdoch.  

Meanwhile, in Capitol Hill conflicting messages are coming from Marco Rubio who seems to have heard people unhappy with his immigration positions and is struggling to remain a viable candidate for next elections.  Mike Lee, who won with support from the Tea Party, is also targeted by the business leaders, in the hope to convince him to join the bandwagon of immigration reform. However, Senator Lee will not be an easy prey, as he has qualms to oppose an immigration overhaul that he considers more of an “amnesty.”

No one forgets that President Obama has made clear he wants this immigration legislation signed by the end of this year. To that purpose, he has met with members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus “to discuss administration efforts to urge House passage of immigration legislation.”

The president will use “all tools available”.  Indeed, Americans know that he will do all in his power, and more, to get an immigration bill through Congress.

The Obama Administration has said that “enacting the Senate immigration measure would increase the U.S. gross domestic product by 3.3 percent in 2023 by creating a larger labor force, higher productivity and stronger technology and agriculture.”

They willingly forget that America already has a large labor force, there are roughly  a third of the American population, i.e., 114 million in all, jobless, unemployed or without work who must be given any and all jobs available in America.  They should be priority number one, above anyone else.

Most immigrants targeted by the Obama Administration to receive their gifts, are highly unskilled individuals -not the opposite.  So, how do they figure these people would be instrumental in increasing the U.S. gross domestic product by 3.3%?

And, there are still other issues such as border security, immigration agents to be dealt with.  For now, suffice it to note the incongruent ambitions of the President with the reality of the situation.

The ill policies of democrats and republicans from the last decades have been guided by an American political leadership that has governed in accordance to personal and corporate interests and not by the best interest of America and her citizens.  That is the reason why they need to maintain the fabric of the  country made of immigrants -while they give hard time to born-Americans.

Fifty million American babies have been murdered thanks to laws promoting and facilitating abortion.  America needs more American born babies.  A good President would have promoted and facilitated that young couples have as many babies as possible. Sadly, the abortion program is one of the abhorrent pet projects of this President

Once again, the politics of the leadership serve their own personal and corporate interests.  Once again, they are not thinking of the country and people whom they should defend -with their lives, in case of need. Once again, political and business leaders are betraying America.

At this point, allowing a quasi-amnesty on immigration equates to have the doors wide open to unskilled mercenaries.  They will not respect or share the values of the land and will show no love, solidarity or gratitude for America.  

They would still have to show if they are ready to sacrifice for a land that deserves to be worshiped.

One thing is for sure, those mercenary immigrants will show allegiance to the rotten American leadership that has facilitated their status as new Americans.

Frankly, America deserves better.  

God bless America

Liberals have always pretended to be the standard bearers of ‘humanitarian’ issues.  For instance, “defense of human rights,” has been one of their pet causes.  “Defense of justice” against social “injustice” has been the next on their agenda.  “Children” well-being was also on the list. “Whales” as well as “dolphins” and “rhinos”, no allusion, are also down along.  And, whether green or blue, “environment” continues the circle.

It was those same liberals who elected Mr. Obama the first time.  And, not having enough, they repeated the feat for a second time.  And, one day soon, they will realize that by granting victory to this man and all he represents, they may have ambushed themselves in Mr. Obama’s attacks on America.

Breaking news have announced that Obama has been lying all along about the healthcare system he has shoved down the throat of Americans.  Was the President ill-intentioned?  You bet.  

NBC reports that while the President has “...repeatedly assured Americans that after the Affordable Care Act became law, people who liked their health insurance would be able to keep it. But millions of Americans are getting or are about to get cancellation letters for their health insurance under Obamacare, say experts, and the Obama administration has known that for at least three years.”

We are used to the fact that terrorism is waged by exploding a bomb in a place where unsuspecting, innocent civilians are the victims.  The attack is prepared with minutiae and the ill intent to harm those who are unprepared and defenseless.

But, in this XXIst century, there is a new kind of terrorism.  

Nowadays, we are discovering that terrorism can also be intellectual, psychological, political, in such a way that unlike the physically enacted terrorism, this one is intangible.  

One cannot see weapons used by the perpetrators.  Neither can one see the effect it has on its victims.  What’s worse, is that one cannot even realize when it is committed or when it begins or ends.  

Up until now it would have been difficult to show the American democratic constituency that the presidential terrorism perpetrated also targets them.   The President’s partisanship does not preclude him from hurting his enablers.

Today’s news announcing Obama’s lies promoting the Affordable Health Care should disarm and distress even his voters.  No one can forget when he said in 2009: “...if you like your health plan, you will be able to keep your health plan,” was still saying in 2012, “If [you] already have health insurance, you will keep your health insurance.”

The President’s betrayal in this field should not come as a surprise.  

Obama has not hesitated to pass a tab of 20 billion dollar to the nation, for his family of only four and BO the dog, no relation, for last year’s expenses.

Humanitarianism in liberal lingo has always meant “humanitarian with the enemy,” thus Obama splurges in giving billions to terrorist supporting organizations or electricity in Africa and other, rather than thinking of creating jobs at home, creating training courses in different fields for high school graduates, feeding the destitute, or even planning on some universities that would be really for free for students who could not afford higher education otherwise.  

He has had no qualm in favoring outsourcing jobs, disregarding the rate of unemployed or jobless or people actually with no work or working possibilities, a rough number of 114 million altogether.   And, “jobless” does not only affect the jobless person, but also the families at large, in their psyche, in their financial insecurity and anguish, in the psychological and evident threat of an uncertain future.  

The long lines waiting for aid are no worry for Mr. Obama, they represent his success.  In fact, he may be looking at them with inner satisfaction of how he has succeeded turning Americans addicted to the beggar mentality that his party want to achieve as they serve their ultimate masters, global Islamic domination.

Spying on Mrs. Merkel and other leaders around the globe -who are proven no terrorists, and denying it flat out, has only shown the whole world what kind of species Mr. Obama belongs to.  

The President’s IQ obviously cannot be that high, and in all his malignancy, it has been hard for him and his ilk, to figure that one day, sooner or later, shrewder and savvier Europeans one day would realize what America has been inflicting upon them.  They have, needlessly, received the terrorist treatment.  

Today’s turn belongs to Americans at large.  So many are waking up to realize that it is considerable when 70% of our country will de facto be forced to abandon their health insurance because Mr. Obama’s “Affordable” Health Care mandates it.  

Obama knew.  He has behaved, once again, as he did with the poor Americans he turned his back on in Benghazi.  This time, he has turned the back on America at large, including his democratic voters.  

Part of this insane betrayal are also the opening of the borders, the de facto immigration that is happening under the eyes of the whole country, the insertion of the Islamic agenda while closing doors to Christianity, the country’s traditional religious group.  The rise of feminism which together with the promotion of homosexual marriage represent the intent of destroying the family nucleus, what gives a country its very own identity.  

As Press Secretary of former First Lady Barbara Bush, and respected journalist, Andrew Malcolm writes about recent developments surrounding Obama’s involvement or lack of it:  “But over recent months the Obama administration has developed a peculiar pattern of behavior in this area. Obama himself and unidentified aides using news leaks have boasted of the president's ignorance of things that an ordinary person outside the Oval Office bubble would think a chief executive should know.  That's the kind of dodge favored by those whose father never taught them to take responsibility for their actions.”

As evidence mounts around the argument “Obama did not know,” maybe a new hypothesis can be considered.

This may simply turn to be a White House conspiracy to cover up for a President whose goal is the destruction of America.

If Mr. Obama has the opportunity to finish his term, America will never be America again.

God bless America

"Worse than the Gestapo." —Simon Wiesenthal, Nazi hunter, about the Stasi.

#StopWatchingUs: “A Rally Against Mass Surveillance”

President Obama has been playing with fire, pushing Americans around under the watchful eye of Congress.  And the result is showing.

Stop Watching Us is an organization of 100 public advocacy groups, among them the American Civil Liberties Union, Freedom Works, as well as individuals like Chinese artist-activist Ai Weiwei and Glenn Greenwald, the journalist who interviewed Edward Snowden and helped him expose many of the NSA’s surveillance procedures.

They organized a rally last Saturday, October 26 -the 12th anniversary of the US Patriot Act.  The event began at 11:30 am and took place in Washington, D.C.  

As expected, the rally has been vastly under-reported by the American mainstream media, Mr. Obama’s para-official state media.

People are fed up with being tossed around by the Obama apparatus.  In what is supposed to have been the largest privacy rally in American history, they were demanding an end to the mass NSA surveillance, inside the United States and abroad.

It is evident that ever since Edward Snowden open the Pandora box labeled NSA, last May 2013, Americans have learned and continue to experience, by painful bits, how their privacies are being curtailed.  And, that’s the tip of the iceberg.

Although the magnitude of the activities of the NSA are unknown and probably cannot presently be fathomed, it is important that Americans show Obama and his Administration that they will not tolerate this kind of abuse.

"In the last four months, we’ve learned a lot about our government. We’ve learned that the US Intelligence Community secretly built a system of pervasive surveillance.
Today, no telephone in America makes a call without leaving a record with the NSA. Today, no Internet transaction enters or leaves America without passing through the NSA’s hands. Our representatives in Congress tell us this is not surveillance. They’re wrong.

We’ve also learned this isn’t about red or blue party lines. Neither is it about terrorism.

It is about power, control, and trust in government; about whether you have a voice in our democracy or decisions are made for you rather than with you. We’re here to remind our government officials that they are public servants, not private investigators.

This is about the unconstitutional, unethical, and immoral actions of the modern-day surveillance state and how we all must work together to remind government to stop them. It’s about our right to know, to associate freely, and to live in an open society.
We are witnessing an American moment in which ordinary people from high schools to high office stand up to oppose a dangerous trend in government.

We are told that what is unconstitutional is not illegal, but we will not be fooled. We have not forgotten that the Fourth Amendment in our Bill of Rights prohibits government not only from searching our personal effects without a warrant but from seizing them in the first place.

Holding to this principle, we declare that mass surveillance has no place in this country.

It is time for reform. Elections are coming and we’re watching you."


The former East Germany has infamously led in this field.  Few Americans may have heard about the “Stasi”, the East German state police, part of the Ministry of State Security or Ministerium für Staatssicherheit, founded on February 8, 1950, until the Fall of the Wall that marked the end of East Germany, on October 4th, 1990.  

Stasi existed forty long years, enough to perfect its machinery of oppression, espionage, international terrorism and subversion, in the name of providing “full protection” to East Germans.  

When the regime collapsed, the Stasi had 102,000 full-time officers and noncommissioned personnel on its rolls, including 11,000 members of the ministry's own special guards regiment. Between 1950 and 1989, a total of 274,000 persons served in the Stasi.

Comparatively speaking, the Stasi was much worse than the Gestapo.  According to Nazi hunter Simon Wiesenthal, "The Gestapo had 40,000 officials watching a country of 80 million while the Stasi employed 102,000 to control only 17 million." Besides, the Nazi horror lasted ‘only’ twelve years.

In “Revenge versus the Rule of Law,” author John O’Koehler, states that “To ensure that the people would become and remain submissive, East German communist leaders saturated their realm with more spies than had any other totalitarian government in recent history.

The Soviet Union's KGB employed about 480,000 full-time agents to oversee a nation of 280 million, which means there was one agent per 5,830 citizens. Using Wiesenthal's figures for the Nazi Gestapo, there was one officer for 2,000 people. The ratio for the Stasi was one secret policeman per 166 East Germans.

When the regular informers are added, these ratios become much higher: In the Stasi's case, there would have been at least one spy watching every 66 citizens! When one adds in the estimated numbers of part-time snoops, the result is nothing short of monstrous: one informer per 6.5 citizens. It would not have been unreasonable to assume that at least one Stasi informer was present in any party of ten or twelve dinner guests.”

Like a giant octopus, the Stasi's tentacles probed every aspect of life. Full-time officers were posted to all major industrial plants.

Without exception, one tenant in every apartment building was designated as a watchdog reporting to an area representative of the Volkspolizei (Vopo), the People's Police. In turn, the police officer was the Stasi's man.

If a relative or friend came to stay overnight, it was reported. Schools, universities, and hospitals were infiltrated from top to bottom.

German academe was shocked to learn that Heinrich Fink, professor of theology and vice chancellor at East Berlin's Humboldt University, had been a Stasi informer since 1968. After Fink's Stasi connections came to light, he was summarily fired. Doctors, lawyers, journalists, writers, actors, and sports figures were co-opted by Stasi officers, as were waiters and hotel personnel.

Tapping about 100,000 telephone lines in West Germany and West Berlin around the clock was the job of 2,000 officers.  

Stasi officers knew no limits and had no qualm when it came to "protecting the party and the state." Churchmen, including high officials of both Protestant and Catholic denominations, were recruited en masse as secret informers. Their offices and confessionals were infested with eavesdropping devices. Even the director of Leipzig's famous Thomas Church choir, Hans-Joachim Rotch, was forced to resign when he was unmasked as a Spitzel, the people's pejorative for a Stasi informant.
Absolutely nothing was sacred to the secret police.


Surveillance is not only surveillance, but the mechanism that can facilitate terrorizing the population.  Useful tools to terrorize, after surveillance, are coercion, imprisonment, torture and death.

That is what the Stasi did, as it is recorded.  

In similar cases, coercion has forced relatives to tell on relatives, and children on parents.  

In the case of Iraq under Saddam Hussein, all of that was recorded, as were the punishments included mutilation of ears, fingers, hands, feet, burns by cigarette, plus de remains of 400,000 found in various mass graves.  

In America there are already ten concentration camps, though no one knows why do they exist.  Will that be apparent soon?

When privacy of people is violated by the NSA surveillance, it is an attack that takes away from them the dignity to have a private life.  

It is as though the police would randomly enter a home with no search warrant.  And as such, it must be unacceptable and must not be tolerated.  


Obama’s Cairo Speech in 2009 was an insult to America and to the autonomy of a country, Egypt, and their legitimate President, Mr. Mubarak, who until then had been, somehow, an ally.  Instead, Mr. Obama showed his allegiance to the Muslim Brotherhood.  

While the President is keen in recording each sigh of Americans, he has wide opened the doors to one of the principal promoters of terrorism, the Muslim Brotherhood, many of whose members are part of the Obama Administration.  His Administration has given them enough clearance to learn state secrets and access to essential jobs to help shape American politics.

Yet, this rogue President and his thuggish Administration have had the audacity to cowardly encourage stripping Americans of the intimate details of their private lives.  


The issue of safety is non-partisan . Therefore, it is time that Americans unite.  The cause is one and the people should be one.  

It was a big mistake electing Barack Hussein Obama and his team to lead the country.

His ill will does not exclude democrats.  Joblessness and unemployment also hit Americans of all venues, regardless of either party.  Attacks against the military are equally non-partisan.  The security issue does not make any difference either between democrats and republicans.  The Obamacare impositions also affect both.  Etcetera.

Thanks to Snowden, people have been alerted.  Slowly they are beginning to understand what the government incursion in their private lives will mean, because no one now feels free to speak over the phone, or email, or browse the internet.  International callers are also reluctant to speak to friends or relatives in America.  

Naturally, the situation could deteriorate beyond the wildest imagination and largely exceed the Stasi abuses, considering the internet extraordinary performance and its possibility to amass an infinite amount of data in much less space than could ever have been expected.

Americans are beginning to be fed up with the excesses and the crimes and misdemeanors of the Obama Administration.  Conforming with dictatorship is not really compatible with the agonizing American Dream that badly needs to be resuscitated.

Totalitarianism is the total and absolute control of the population. Spying is not among the presidential functions and it is pernicious to everything, including America’s deteriorating influence in world affairs.  

The European Parliament has recently voted to suspend its SWIFT data exchange agreement with the US following concerns that they are spying in the EU and not only trying to combat terrorism.  Angela Merkel, the German Chancellor, has inquired with the American President if he spied on her.  

American democrats and republicans alike, may be wondering where did the dream go.  

Hopefully, united, they may soon decide that it is time to obstruct President Obama’s way to destroy America from inside -and save the dwindling reputation that once represented America’s Exceptionalism in the world.  

"Now it's time for the government to learn from us…   Join us in sending the message.”

Signed:  Stop Watching Us

God bless America.
