Veterans Day---Thank a Veteran

Please take a few moments to read the below listed heart-warming story on Veterans Day, November 11th.  We honor all Veterans, especially those who gave the last full measure of devotion in defense of the Republic.  Many Veterans who have been involved in combat are still suffering from PTSD, the majority of them have not been able to get proper medical attention or therapy to deal with their PTSD.  Unfortunately and an average of 23 Veterans are committing suicide every day.  If you have the opportunity, thank a Veteran on Veterans Day, and/or as often as you can for their service.

Thanks.  Airline Captain!!!.............

My lead flight attendant came to me and said, "We  have an H.R. on this flight." (H.R. stands for human remains.) 
  

"Are they military?" I asked.   'Yes', she said.   'Is there an escort?' I asked.  'Yes, I've already assigned him a seat'. 

 

'Would you please tell him to come to the Flight Deck. You can board him early," I said... 

 

A short while later a young army sergeant entered the flight deck.  He was the image of the perfectly dressed soldier.  He introduced himself and I asked him about his soldier. 

The escorts of these fallen soldiers talk about them as if they are still alive and still with us.  'My soldier is on his way back to Virginia ,' he said.  He proceeded to answer my questions, but offered no words. 

 

I asked him if there was anything I could do for him and he said no.  I told him that he had the toughest job in the military, and that I appreciated the work that he does for the families of our fallen soldiers.  The first officer and I got up out of our seats to shake his hand.  He left the Flight Deck to find his seat. 

 

We completed our preflight checks, pushed back and performed an uneventful departure.  About 30 minutes into our flight, I received a call from the lead flight attendant in the cabin. 

 

'I just found out the family of the soldier we are carrying, is also on board', she said.  She then proceeded to tell me that the father, mother, wife and 2-year old daughter were escorting their son, husband, and father home.  The family was upset because they were unable to see the container that the soldier was in before we left. 

  
We were on our way to a major hub at which the family was going to wait four hours for the connecting flight home to Virginia .  The father of the soldier told the flight attendant that knowing his son was below him in the cargo compartment and being unable to see him was too much for him and the family to bear.  He had asked the flight attendant if there was anything that could be done to allow them to see him upon our arrival.  The family wanted to be outside by the cargo door to watch the soldier being taken off the airplane. 

 

I could hear the desperation in the flight attendant’s voice when she asked me if there was anything I could do. 'I'm on it', I said.  I told her that I would get back to her. 

  
Airborne communication with my company normally occurs in the form of e-mail like messages.  I decided to bypass this system and contact my flight dispatcher directly on a secondary radio.  There is a radio operator in the operations control center who connects you to the telephone of the dispatcher. I was in direct contact with the dispatcher.  I explained the situation I had on board with the family and what it was the family wanted.  He said he understood and that he would get back to me. 
  
Two hours went by and I had not heard from the dispatcher.  We were going to get busy soon and I needed to know what to tell the family.  I sent a text message asking for an update.  I saved the return message from the dispatcher and the following is the text: 
  
'Captain, sorry it has taken so long to get back to you.  There is policy on this now, and I had to check on a few things.  Upon your arrival a dedicated escort team will meet the aircraft.  The team will escort the family to the ramp and plane side.  A van will be used to load the remains with a secondary van for the family. 

 

The family will be taken to their departure area and escorted into the terminal, where the remains can be seen on the ramp.  It is a private area for the family only.  When the connecting aircraft arrives, the family will be escorted onto the ramp and plane side to watch the remains being loaded for the final leg home. 

 

Captain, most of us here in flight control are veterans.  Please pass our condolences on to the family.  Thanks. 
  
I sent a message back, telling flight control thanks for a good job.  I printed out the message and gave it to the lead flight attendant to pass on to the father.  The lead flight attendant was very thankful and told me, 'You have no idea how much this will mean to them.' 

 

Things started getting busy for the descent, approach and landing.   After landing, we cleared the runway and taxied to the ramp area.  The ramp is huge with 15 gates on either side of the alleyway.  It is always a busy area with aircraft maneuvering every which way to enter and exit.  When we entered the ramp and checked in with the ramp controller, we were told that all traffic was being held for us. 

  
'There is a team in place to meet the aircraft', we were told.  It looked like it was all coming together, then I realized that once we turned the seat belt sign off, everyone would stand up at once and delay the family from getting off the airplane.  As we approached our gate, I asked the copilot to tell the ramp controller, we were going to stop short of the gate to make an announcement to the passengers.  He did that and the ramp controller said, 'Take your time.' 
  
I stopped the aircraft and set the parking brake.  I pushed the public address button and said:  'Ladies and gentleman, this is your Captain speaking: I have stopped short of our gate to make a special announcement.  We have a passenger on board who deserves our honor and respect.  His Name is Private XXXXXX, a soldier who recently lost his life.  Private XXXXXX is under your feet in the cargo hold.  Escorting him today is Army Sergeant XXXXXXX.  Also, on board are his father, mother, wife, and daughter.  Your entire flight crew is asking for all passengers to remain in their seats to allow the family to exit the aircraft first.  Thank you.' 

 

We continued the turn to the gate, came to a stop and started our shutdown procedures.  A couple of minutes later I opened the cockpit door.  I found the two forward flight attendants crying, something you just do not see.  I was told that after we came to a stop, every passenger on the aircraft stayed in their seats, waiting for the family to exit  the aircraft. 
  
When the family got up and gathered their things, a passenger slowly started to clap his hands.  Moments later, more passengers joined in and soon the entire aircraft was clapping.  Words of 'God Bless You', I'm sorry, thank you, be proud, and other kind words were uttered to the family as they made their way down the aisle and out of the airplane.  They were escorted down to the ramp to finally be with their loved one. 

 

Many of the passengers disembarking thanked me for the announcement I had made.  They were just words, I told them, I could say them over and over again, but nothing I say will bring back that brave soldier. 

 

I respectfully ask that all of you reflect on this event and the sacrifices that millions of our men and women have made to ensure our freedom and safety in these United States of AMERICA. 

They died for me and mine and you and yours and deserve our honor and respect. 
  

The US Marine Corps' 239th Birthday

By clicking on the below listed link, you will be able to listen to an inspirational message from the 36thCommandant of the US Marine Corps,  General Joseph F. Dunford, Jr., USMC, on the 239th Birthday of the US Marine Corps, was given to honor the memory of those US Marines who are with us, and those who have gone before us----The Few, The Proud, The Marines 

http://battlerattle.marinecorpstimes.com/2014/10/18/corps-new-cmc-issues-239th-birthday-message-to-marines/  

Each year on November 10th, we recognize Naval Academy Classmates who are US Marines, all US Marines, and especially one Naval Academy classmate who is no longer with us, Colonel John Ripley, USNA ’62, USMC (Ret) (Navy Cross, Silver Star, 2 Bronze Stars, Purple Heart, and many other awards).  The Naval Academy Class of 1962 memorialized Col Ripley’s heroic stand on the Bridge at Dong Ha, South Vietnam, by commissioning a diorama that was installed in Memorial Hall at the US Naval Academy.  

Captain Ripley was serving as a Military Advisor (Covan) with a battalion of less than 700 South Vietnamese Marines at the DMZ.  North Vietnam initiated a surprise offensive on Easter Sunday 1972, Capt Ripley and the South Vietnamese Marines  were faced with a column of 200 soviet built tanks and 20-30,000 North Vietnamese regulars approaching the Bridge at Dong Ha, with the intent of crossing it to invade South Vietnam.  Captain Ripley’s singular action on the bridge while under relentless attack, prevented that enemy force from invading South Vietnam, by destroying the bridge, then by calling in air strikes.   Col Ripley action that halted an invasion of South Vietnam at the bridge at Dong Ha was referred to as a “Horatio at The Bridge” act (In 6th century BC, Horatio halted an invasion of Rome by making a historic stand on the Bridge spanning the Tiber River.)     

 

The US Marine Corps Museum in Quantico depicts Captain Ripley’s action on the Bridge at Dong Ha.  A  building at the Naval Academy Preparatory School in Newport, Rhode Island was named for Col Ripley.  Col Ripley is the only US Marine Officer who qualified as a US Army Ranger, who was inducted into the US Army Ranger Hall of Fame.   Many books have been written about Colonel Ripley’s Heroic stand on the Bridge at Dong Ha (“The Bridge at Dong Ha” by Miller, “The Easter Offensive” by Turley, “An American Knight” by Fulkerson, etc.).  Col Ripley is being inducted into USSOCOM’s Commando Hall of Honor.   A statues has been commissioned honoring Captain Ripley, and several attempts have been made to produce a movie about Captain Ripley’s heroic stand on the Bridge at Dong Ha.   

 

On the US Marine Corps Birthday and every day we honor all US Marines.  The above listed paragraph explaining Col Ripley’s stand on the Bridge at Dong Ha and is another example of US Marine Corps Leadership in Combat, of selfless Courage, and of Duty to Country by a Marine that Americans, for 239 years, have come to expect of US Marines.  Happy Birthday Marines!!  Semper Fidelis.  

A Heroic Combat US Marine, Sgt Andrew Tahmooressi, USMC Speaks Out

If you watched Sgt Andrew Tahmooressi, USMC interview with Greta Van Susteren, no matter how tough you are, it will break your heart.  Sgt Tahmooressi is a “Heroic” US Marine, with two Combat Tours of Duty in Afghanistan.  He and his fellow Marines had been fighting for every American.  Sgt Tahmooressi was moving back to San Diego so he could be treated for PTSD at the San Diego VA Hospital; all his belongings were in his truck including his 3 weapons.   

Sgt Tahmooressi made an “INNOCENT MISTAKE” and took a wrong turn at night in San Diego where there were no lighted signs, and he ended up in Mexico.  He explained to the Mexican Border Guards that he made a wrong turn, explained he had all his personal belongings, including 3 weapons in the back of his truck, and asked for directions back to San Diego.  Sgt Tahmooressi was then manhandled Mexican police, and was subsequently incarcerated for 214 days by the Mexican Federal Government, a government with double standards.  The Mexican Government has been encouraging thousands of illegal aliens to “INTENTIONALLY” violate US Federal Immigration Laws, and has supported over 20 million illegal aliens to “INTENTIONALLY” cross the wide open southern border “by foot”; the Mexican government continues to promote the violation of US Immigration Laws because, for the last 6 years, they’ve received a wink and a nod from Obama who by his policies of preventing ICE from deporting illegal aliens, approves and encourages illegal aliens to cross illegally into the US.  

 

Yet when just “ONE” Heroic US Marine makes an “INNOCENT MISTAKE” by crossing the Mexican border at San Diego, openly driving in his truck at night with headlights on, not by sneaking into Mexico on foot, like millions of Mexican illegal aliens cross into the US every year.  The mistaken entry occurred because of poor signage on the San Diego side of the border, that eventually resulted in Sgt Tahmooressi being put in Mexican prisons where he was mentally abused and tortured by Mexican Prison Guards while still suffering from PTSD (I made the same innocent mistake during daylight hours while in San Diego near the Mexican border, like Sgt Tahmooressi made in his innocent mistake at night when he crossed the Mexican border; when I showed the US Border Patrol my Federal Law Enforcement Officer’s badge and asked to be allowed to turn around at the border, they told me I would have to continue south, there wasn’t any place for them, so I had to continue into Mexico to be able turn around and head back into the US).  Recently, because of what happened to Sgt Tahmooressi, the State of California, corrected the signage, modified the entry roads at the border to allow a turn around, in order to prevent others from doing what Sgt Tahmooressi and I did----when we “INNOCENTLY MISTAKENLY” entered Mexico.

 

The torturous incarceration and mental abuse that followed for Sgt Tahmooressi over a 7 month period was unconscionable.  He suffered consistent beatings by Mexican Prison Guards with sticks and their hands, was forced to his knees facing the wall, was forced to face abuse and threats from Mexican criminals in jails with him who said one of them was hiring a “hit man” who would kill him (those abusive threats continued for 214 days), he was stripped naked & forced to stand throughout the night, forced to remain in his cell naked with no blankets at night to keep him warm, was handcuffed by his legs and wrists in a 4 point restraint without the ability to properly go to the bathroom, Mexican Prison Guards laughed at Sgt Tahmooressi’s attempts to relieve himself while handcuffed by his wrist and leg, those Mexican Prison Guards beating him and laughing at him had less of an IQ than Sgt Tahmooressi.  For Obama to allow those mental abuses and those torturous practices to be visited upon a heroic Combat US Marine by the Mexican Government is disgusting.  What would the Mexican Government do if the US Immigration Service tortured even one of the millions of Illegal aliens in the US like Sgt Tahmooressi was tortured?  

 

The occupant of the Oval Office did nothing to help a “Heroic” Combat US Marine while he was being mentally abused, threatened, and tortured for 214 days, even when the US Consul in Mexico knew Sgt Tahmooressi was suffering from PTSD as a result of his Combat service in defense of the Republic.  The Obama administration was informed by the US Consul in Mexico, that out of desperation and in an attempt to escape the torturous incarceration, Sgt Tahmooressi tried to escape from prison.  The US Consul was also informed the Obama administration that three days after his escape from prison failed, in order to escape the continued torture and mental abuse, Sgt Tahmooressi tried to commit suicide by cutting his neck with broken florescent light bulb, and that he nearly bled to death.  Yet Obama did absolutely nothing; finally just before the election, a judge in a Mexican Court released Sgt Tahmooressi, because Mexico had no way to treat PTSD.  Anyone who watched the interview by Greta Van Sustran of Sgt Tahmooressi, in the first 10 minutes into it, would have been aware that the US Marine is obviously suffering from PTSD---the US Consul must had determined that 214 days ago, and would have relayed that to the Obama administration.

 

The same occupant of the Oval Office who not only refused to help a US Marine for over 7 months, also refused to execute “Cross Border Authority” during the Battle of  Benghazi, so the Pentagon was unable to dispatch fighter aircraft that were only 2 hours away in Sigonella Italy.  American personnel on the ground in Benghazi, under attack by over 125 Al Q’ieda terrorists for 8 hours pleated for military re-enforcements, yet Obama still refused for 8 hours to issue “Cross Border Authority,” so the Pentagon was never able to dispatch a US Marine rescue mission that was on the tarmac in Europe and ready to go, resulting in 2 US Navy SEALs being murdered by Al Q’ieda terrorists (the US Ambassador had been captured & murdered, and a Communications Specialist had been murdered by Al Q’ieda terrorists during the first hour of the attack).  If you are a US Marine or a US Navy SEAL don’t expect the occupant in the Oval Office to help you, if you get in trouble

 

During the same 7 months period that Sgt Tahmooressi was in a cage in a Mexican prison, Obama exchanged a soldier who deserted in the face of the enemy in Afghanistan, where Sgt Tahmooressi served heroically, for 5 of the most dangerous terrorists incarcerated in Gitmo; that traitorous deserting soldier remained with the enemy for 5 years, while Sgt Tahmooressi returned to Afghanistan to serve a second combat tour of duty.  Those 5 dangerous terrorist are now in support of ISIL’s fight in Iraq, along with other Al Q’ieda terrorists Obama released from Gitmo.  We also received unconfirmed reports that the Obama administration paid the Taliban a substantial sum of money, as a ransom payment, for releasing of that dishonorable “Army Deserter”  Any Army Deserter who deserts his unit in the face of the enemy, should be either jailed or executed.

 

What would President Ronald Reagan have done, on his watch, if a US Marine with PTSD was improperly incarcerated for over 7 months, was mentally abused, and was tortured by the Mexican Prison Guards---would he have picked up the phone and called the Mexican President, and convinced him to release the US Marine?  The nation and 23 million US military Veterans were shamed by the way the occupant of the Oval Office allowed an Honorable Combat US Marine with PTSD who made an “INNOCENT MISTAKE” and was locked up in a cage in a Mexican Prison for 7 months, was tortured, and was mentally abused while he twisted in the wind because of his abandonment by the occupant in the Oval Office.  

 

The Combat Veterans For Congress Honor Sgt Andrew Tahmooressi, USMC for his service in defense of the Republic, we---all US Marines--& all Americans are so very proud of Sgt Tahmooressi for how he courageously faced his horrible torturous incarceration in a Mexican prison, and trust his mental abuse at the hands of Mexican Prison Guards and his PTSD suffered from two combat tours of duty in Afghanistan will finally receive proper medical attention & treatment in a US Hospital.  Semper Fi. 

 

The Remarkable Results of The 2014 Congressional Election

   Last night was remarkable----this is a great day for America-----American citizens have spoken!  Republicans have taken control of the US Senate (by 9 new votes when all the election results are in) away from Reid who prevented 350+ House bills (many that were bi-partisan) from being voted on over a 6 year period.  The Republicans have increased control of the US House of Representatives to a margin of over 245 seats that they haven’t had since 1929.  The Republicans took control of 32 Governorship and state legislatures who will pass voter photo ID laws. The election was a referendum on Obama who told the American people, although he wasn’t on the ballot, his policies were. 

     The American people have expressed their rejection of bloated government bureaucracy that has grown out of control, Obama surrogates using the use of race card in this election, saying the Republicans have a war on women, the hallowing out of the US military, opposition to the largest increases in taxes in US history, opposition to the repeated violation of the US Constitution and Federal Laws by Obama, showing their disgust by the disgraceful failure by Obama to issue “Cross Border Authority” that would have allowed the US military to save the lives of 2 US Navy SEALS in Benghazi, their rejection of so many major scandals perpetrated by the Obama administration (Fast & Furious, IRS, Benghazi, NSA, VA Scandal, exchange of an Army deserter for 5 of the most dangerous terrorists in the world, etc.),  the rejection of the Obama administration’s maintenance of the wide open southern border, rejected the lack of action for nearly 2 years by Obama to oppose ISIL’s killing of Assyrian Christians in their communities in Syria and Iraq, and the failure of the Obama administration to properly protect the American people from the Ebola killer disease by refusing to restrict 150 passengers/day from West Africa from entering the US like 70 other countries have done to protect their citizens. 

 

     Because of the selection process, the patriotism of the endorsed Combat Veterans For Congress, their heroism on the battle field, and their quality of leadership, the endorsed Combat Veterans For Congress overcame the lack of financial support.  After two long years of diligent work, working with very little financial support, we were able to contribute substantially to electing and re-electing more Combat Veterans For Congress this year, than in any of the last three Congressional elections.  The election  of the 24 endorsed Combat Veterans For Congress listed on the Endorsements page of this Web site (3 US Senators, and 21 US Congressmen); contributed in a small way to the “Republican Wave” that occurred last night.   

 

     A number of the endorsed Combat Veterans For Congress lost their first political races, and in some cases obtained 49%, 49.8%, 47%, 46.5%, etc. of the votes cast  in their hard fought campaigns.  It was a learning process for many of them, but several of them have informed us that they will run again in 2016:

 

     We have no doubt that the elected Combat Veterans For Congress will work diligently to support the American people by campaigning in  the US Senate and the US House to get Congress to work for----------------a smaller government, lowering taxes, rebuilding the hollowed out US military, changing the flawed Obamacare Law so that hard working Americans can keep their doctors & insurance plans, guaranteeing the Freedom of Religion for Chaplins & members of the US Military that is being systematically violated, sealing the wide open southern borders to protect the National Security of the Republic, taking appropriate military actions in the Middle East to prevent ISIL from killing Assyrian Christians & from threatening the Homeland, encouraging the Obama administration to follow the lead of 70 other countries by preventing all passengers arriving from West Africa where Ebola is ravaging the population from entering the US, and protecting the freedoms guaranteed in the Bill of Rights that have been under assault by the Obama administration for the last 6 years.

 

     We believe we can speak for the elected Combat Veterans For Congress when we say, we hope the occupant of the Oval Office does not execute an Executive Order in violation of Federal Immigration Laws by legalizing 6 million more illegal aliens, to add to the 1 million Dreamers he already violated Federal Immigration Law to legalize, and by doing so doing, to encourage millions of a new wave of illegal aliens, drug traffickers, human smugglers, terrorists, criminals, and children carrying infectious diseases to break Federal Immigration Laws by streaming across the wide open southern border.

  

    As a former Federal Law Enforcement Officer, I know I express the sentiment of the hundreds of local, county state, and Federal Law Enforcement Officer supporters in our data base, and hope that the Obama will stop violating the US Constitution, will stop violating Federal Laws enacted by previous Congresses & signed by previous US Presidents that he swore to enforce, and that he will get back to the Rule of Law..

 

     We feel the last two years of hard work has paid off for us, the elected Combat Veterans For Congress, and millions of American Patriots who worked to take their country back and right the Ship of State; “The chickens came home to roost!!”

 

Predicted Voter Fraud Underway on a Massive Scale--With Examples

 In the 2008 Presidential election, Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) had 1200 neighborhood chapters with 500,000 members  in 100 major cities across the nation; ACORN was funded by Congress to register voters.  ACORN employed massive  Voter Fraud to get Obama elected.  In 2009, in the wake of the production of video tapes portraying members of ACORN engaged in the registration of illegal aliens, a nationwide controversy erupted.  ACORN was found to be falsifying then filing voter registration forms in Missouri, Ohio, Colorado, Indiana, New Mexico, Pennsylvania, Nevada, Texas, Arizona, Florida, California, Wisconsin, Washington, New York, and Illinois, resulting in felony convictions in Federal Court in those states for Voter Fraud.   As a result, millions of illegal votes were cast by illegal voters, and the previous funding for ACORN to register voters was terminated by Congress.  ACORN was disbanded following multiple convictions for felony Voter Fraud in Federal courts  in multiple states.  The Obama administration morphed the 1200 ACORN chapters into many newly named organizations in 50 states, and those newly named organization employed the same ACORN operatives who are being well funded by the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare, as they continued perpetrating massive Voter Fraud in the 2012 Presidential election.   

It was reported in the below listed article, that in the 2012 Presidential election, that 6.4% of the 124,026,000 votes cast by voters, or 7,937,664 vote cast, were cast by illegal aliens.  For 6 years Holder, following Obama’s instructions, has been aggressively filing law suits against any state that passes a voter photo ID law to preventthem from opposing the massive Voter Fraud again in 2012, like they did in 2008 and the number of illegal aliens voters grew in to over 7 million voters in 2012.  States have been passing voter ID laws requiring that voters present a photo voter ID, in order to vote at the polls for comparison to the list of registered voters.  

 

Even when states offered to  pay for the issuance of those voter photo IDs, Holder still filed suits against the states to oppose the requirement for photo voter ID, by saying those ;laws were designed to suppress minorities from voting. The long term goal of Obama and his leftists and Marxist supporters appointees in the bloated bureaucracy is to CHANGE the Republic into a one party Socialist State.  Obama’s leftist supporters are continuing the employment of Voter Fraud to register more illegal aliens than the 7.937,644 illegal aliens that voted in 2012. 

 

Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL-Senate) addressed the US Senate in a 30-minute floor speech and alerted the nation to the fact that after the November 4th election, Obama is preparing, once again, to unilaterally circumvent Federal Immigration Laws by issuing an Executive Order in order to violate Federal Immigration Law and the US Constitution, without the consent of Congress.  Obama had previously violated Federal Immigration Laws, without the consent of Congress, by issuing an Executive Oder to prevent ICE from deporting nearly 1 million illegal aliens, termed Dreamers, who are now protected from deportation by the Obama administration’s ill-conceived Deferred Action-Childhood Arrival Program (DACA).  

 

Obama gave temporary lawful status to those illegal aliens in the DACA program, up to age 31, and provided them with identity documents, expediting their rapid pathway to citizenship, without so much as a face-to-face interview with ICE or Immigration officials.  The Obama administration has made it very easy for another 1 million Illegal aliens to obtain drivers licenses and register to vote, when those 1 million Dreamers are added to the 7,937,6644 illegal aliens who violated Federal Law by votingin 2012, there will be nearly 9 million Illegal aliens violating Federal Law and voting on November 4th.   The Obama administration knows the that Immigration Service does not have theresources to conduct field investigations of the 1 million DACA Illegal aliens, in order to check their applications, so the Immigration Service could uncover fraud, determine if they have criminal records, or determine if they might be listed in the CIA terrorist data base.   Although Congressional leaders have the power of the purse, they have done absolutely nothing to cancel the funding required to expedite the pathway to citizenship for the DACA program.  

 

After the November election, according to Senator Sessions, Obama is planning to issue another Executive Order, that will provide legal status and work authorization cards to an additional 5 to 6 million illegal aliens in the United States.  Obama plans to issue those work permits to 6 million illegal aliens at a time when 44 million American citizens are unemployed & on food stamps, all American citizens would be required to compete for jobs with the 6 million Illegal aliens Obama plans to issue work permits to.  When those 6 million illegal aliens, are added to the 1 million DACA illegal aliens previously provided with legal status, and the 7,937,664 illegal aliens who illegally voted in 2012. Obama will have been behind and responsible for helping nearly 15 million illegal aliens to register to vote for President in 2016.

 

Current examples of the massive Voter Fraud:

 

Maryland--Massive voter fraud in Maryland has been uncovered where illegal aliens who say they are not citizens on jury duty survey forms are found to have registered to vote by the thousands http://conservativebyte.com/2014/10/massive-non-citizen-voting-uncovered-maryland/  Early voting just started in Maryland, but there are already accusations that some voting machines are changing Republican votes to Democrat  Now Republicans are calling for an investigation by the State Board of Elections. 

 

Illinois---Early voting in Illinois got off to a rocky start last Monday, as votes being cast for Republican candidates were transformed into votes for Democrats.  Republican state Representative candidate Jim Moynihan went to vote at the Schaumburg Public Library.  “I tried to vote for myself and instead it cast a vote for my opponent.”  Moynihan said Cook County Board of Elections Deputy Communications Director, Jim Scalzitti, told Illinois Watchdog, the machine was taken out of service to be tested 

 

North Carolina---The North Carolina Board of Elections has found 1,425 registered voters who likely are illegal aliens.  The audit sample 10,000 registered voters in with data provided by the North Carolina Division of Motor Vehicles and the US Department of Homeland Security.

 

New York---A single Bronx voter listed in official records as being 164 years old led to the Board of Elections officials to review their files-----where they turned up another 849 New Yorkers who were supposedly alive when Abraham Lincoln was President.  

 

Examples of Voter Fraud in Connecticut, Kentucky, Georgia, Virginia, Minnesota, Alabama, Texas, Massachusetts, Tennessee, California, Idaho, Ohio, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, New York, New Hampshire, Mississippi, Wisconsin, Indiana, Florida, South Dakota, Nevada, Oregon, Iowa, Colorado, Kansas, Louisiana, Arkansas, Michigan, Hawaii, Maryland, Rhode Island, etc. can be reviewed by clicking on the link https://www.rnla.org/votefraud.asp

  

To prevent the massive scale   Voter Fraud underway being perpetrated by the Obama administration, every state should pass laws to require voters to show photo ID in order to cast vote at the polls.  The Republicans in Congress must use the power of the purse to shut down the issuance of legal documents to provide legal status for DACA illegal aliens and the 6 million Illegal aliens that Obama plans to provide legal state to.  The Governors of every state should close down the issuance of drivers licenses for illegal aliens, so they cannot use their drivers licenses as proof of residence, so they can register to vote.  We encourage voters to volunteer to be poll observers or poll workers to assure Federal voting laws are observed on November 4th

 

"If we lose freedom here, there is no place to escape to.  This is the last stand on Earth.  And this idea that government is beholden to the people, that it has no other source of power except to sovereign people, is still the newest and most unique idea in all the long history of man's relation to man.  This is the issue of this election.  Whether we believe in our capacity for self-government or whether we abandon the American revolution and confess that a little intellectual elite in a far-distant capital can plan our lives for us better than we can plan them ourselves.

What you are about to read should be front-page news in every newspaper in the country tomorrow. You know it won’t be — but I want you to treat it as that important . . . because it is. Jesse Richman and David Earnest write in the Washington Post:

Could control of the Senate in 2014 be decided by illegal votes cast by non-citizens? Some argue that incidents of voting by non-citizens are so rare as to be inconsequential, with efforts to block fraud a screen for an agenda to prevent poor and minority voters from exercising the franchise, while others define such incidents as a threat to democracy itself. Both sides depend more heavily on anecdotes than data.

In a forthcoming article in the journal Electoral Studies, we bring real data from big social science survey datasets to bear on the question of whether, to what extent, and for whom non-citizens vote in U.S. elections. Most non-citizens do not register, let alone vote. But enough do that their participation can change the outcome of close races.

Our data comes from the Cooperative Congressional Election Study (CCES). Its large number of observations (32,800 in 2008 and 55,400 in 2010) provide sufficient samples of the non-immigrant sub-population, with 339 non-citizen respondents in 2008 and 489 in 2010. For the 2008 CCES, we also attempted to match respondents to voter files so that we could verify whether they actually voted.

How many non-citizens participate in U.S. elections? More than 14 percent of non-citizens in both the 2008 and 2010 samples indicated that they were registered to vote. Furthermore, some of these non-citizens voted. Our best guess, based upon extrapolations from the portion of the sample with a verified vote, is that 6.4 percent of non-citizens voted in 2008 and 2.2 percent of non-citizens voted in 2010.

This is astonishing — but Richman and Earnest fail to convey just how astonishing it is . . . because they don’t explain how many people they are talking about.

Allow me to remedy that.

The progressive think tank Center for American Progress puts the number of noncitizens in the U.S. at 22.1 million in 2012. Of these, “13.3 million were legal permanent residents, 11.3 million were unauthorized migrants, and 1.9 million were on temporary visas.” These numbers are roughly consistent with numbers offered by the Department of Homeland Security (.pdf) and Kaiser Health News. So let’s take 22 million as our number of noncitizens.

Richman and Earnest estimate that 6.4% of noncitizens voted in 2008. 6.4% of 22 million is 1,408,000.

That’s 1.4 million illegal votes likely cast in the presidential election of 2008.

Richman and Earnest also estimate that 2.2% of noncitizens voted in 2010. (In off-year elections, such as 2010 and the approaching election in 2014, turnout is obviously lower.) 2.2% of 22 million is 484,000. That’s nearly half a million illegal votes likely cast in the election of 2010 (and the same number could be cast in the upcoming election).

How important is this? Richman and Earnest say:

Because non-citizens tended to favor Democrats (Obama won more than 80 percent of the votes of non-citizens in the 2008 CCES sample), we find that this participation was large enough to plausibly account for Democratic victories in a few close elections. Non-citizen votes could have given Senate Democrats the pivotal 60th vote needed to overcome filibusters in order to pass health-care reform and other Obama administration priorities in the 111th Congress.

I don’t like to say I told you so, but . . . ah, hell. Y’all know I actually love to say I told you so. And I have, repeatedly. In November 2008, I cited reports that huge increases in Latino voter registration had accompanied huge increases in illegal immigrant populations, and argued that this was probably not a coincidence. As I said then:

It certainly seems logically possible that there were hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of illegal votes cast in this past election. If this is true, it is possible that illegal immigrants decided this election.

If Richman and Earnest are correct, there may well have been hundreds of thousands, indeed almost a million and a half, votes cast by noncitizens (including legal residents who may not vote in federal elections, as well as illegals). And I argued in 2010:

Over time, as our population increases, your vote becomes worth less and less. This problem is exacerbated by factors such as voter fraud. Oh, I know: the liberals all assure us that there is no such thing. But let’s just take one likely rich vein of illegal votes: votes cast by illegal immigrants. What’s that, you say? Votes cast by illegal immigrants? Yes. Estimates say that there are anywhere from 10 million to 18 million illegal immigrants in the country. This means millions are of voting age. What’s more, many of them are experts at obtaining false documents, allowing them to work, drive, and participate in all other aspects of civic life. Do we really think that none of them vote? None? Let’s go with a conservative estimate of 10,000,000 illegal immigrants. If only one percent of them vote — just one percent! — that’s 100,000 illegal votes. That is voter fraud on a massive scale — certainly enough to tip a close election. This sort of thing dilutes your vote.

One percent? In 2010, Richman and Earnest say it was more than two percent, and in 2008 it was more than sixpercent. And again, I overlooked the population of legal noncitizen permanent residents, which more than doubles the number of people we are talking about. But, although my numbers were conservative, I will modestly concede that I totally nailed the main point — which is: hundreds of thousands of illegal votes are potentially being cast in every federal election, and nobody talks about it.

Always trust content from Patterico.

P.S. I can’t leave this post without noting this by Richman and Earnest:

We also find that one of the favorite policies advocated by conservatives to prevent voter fraud appears strikingly ineffective. Nearly three quarters of the non-citizens who indicated they were asked to provide photo identification at the polls claimed to have subsequently voted.

Really? That’s “strikingly ineffective”? (Well, yeah, it could be a lot better. But read on.)

The converse of that is that more than a quarter of the people who were asked for voter ID did not vote. We’re not told how many of the 1.4 million who voted illegally in the 2008 election were asked for IDs, but if voter ID laws were in effect in all 50 states, rather than only about 15 states, we might see over 25% of 1.4 million illegal votes prevented in a presidential election. That’s over 350,000 illegal votes that could potentially be prevented by voter ID laws.

Now: I’m perfectly happy to consider other means for preventing illegal voting. But voter ID laws work, and this study helps prove it.

This is hugely important, folks. Bookmark this post, right now. The next time people try to tell you there is no such thing as voter fraud, I want you to take this link and shove it right down their throats.

P.P.S. The authors do say: “Finally, extrapolation to specific state-level or district-level election outcomes is fraught with substantial uncertainty.” We can’t know for sure whether the extrapolation I present here is overstated, understated, or completely accurate. But one thing we can say: despite the false claims by the left, there is definitely massive voter fraud occurring in every federal election.

 

Obama Administration Quietly Prepares ‘Surge’ of Millions of New Immigrant ID’s in Violation of Federal Law

Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL-Senate) addressed the US Senate in a 30-minute floor speech and alerted the nation to the fact that after the November 4th election, Obama is preparing, once again, to unilaterally circumvent Federal Immigration Laws by issuing an Executive Order and to change Federal Law, without the consent of Congress, in violation of the US Constitution.  Obama had previously violated Federal Immigration Laws, without the consent of Congress, when he issued an Executive Oder preventing the deportation of nearly 1 million illegal aliens, termed dreamers, thru the Obama administration ill-conceived Deferred Action-Childhood Arrival Program (DACA), in which he gave temporary lawful status to illegal aliens up to age 31, and expedited their rapid pathway to citizenship.  

Although Congressional leaders have the power of the purse, they have done nothing to cancel the funding required to expedite the pathway to citizenship for the DACA program.  After the November election, according to Senator Sessions and the below listed article, Obama is planning to issue another Executive Order, that will provide legal status and work authorization cards to an additional 5 to 6 million illegal aliens in the United States.  He plans to issue work permits to 6 million illegal aliens at a time when 44 million American citizens are unemployed & on food stamps, and while 90,000 members of the US Armed Forces are being given pink slips, requiring them to compete for jobs with 6 million Illegal aliens issued work permits.   

 

Obama’s plan to circumvent Federal Immigration Laws was further confirmed on October 6th when the US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) advertised their Draft Solicitation For Bid, distributed to potential vendors, requesting them to be prepared to handle a “surge” of 9 million ID cards for illegal aliens.  This latest planned violation of Federal Immigration Law by Obama, designed to provide legal status for 6 million Illegal aliens, is the third step of a 3 step process to compromise the 2016 Presidential election.    

 

The first step taken to compromise the 2016 Presidential election has been underway for six years.   For 6 years, Attorney General Eric Holder has been employing the Department of Justice to file federal law suits against every state that passes a Voter ID Law.  The Voter ID Laws being passed by multiple states are designed to identify valid registered US citizen going to the polls to vote, and those state laws are intended to prevent Illegal aliens from fraudulently voting in state and federal elections. Recently, in Federal Court, the state of Texas defeated Holder’s latest law suit against its Voter ID Law.

 

The second step, Obama has been employing to compromise the 2016 Presidential election, has been the ongoing plan by the Obama administration to ignore the enforcement of Federal Immigration Laws at the southern border.  The Obama administration is allowing Illegal aliens to cross the wide open southern border, while preventing ICE from deporting millions of illegal aliens..  By clicking on the below listed link, you will be able to view an important video, prepared by the National Association of Former Border Patrol Officers, it explain how for 6 years, the Obama administration has refused to close the wide open southern border and refused to enforce Federal Immigration Laws.  Although the video is a little long, it is very important, and we encourage you to forward it to those in your address book who care about protecting the wellbeing of their families and are concerned about the deaerating security of the Republic.       

http://www.teapartypatriots.org/theborderstates/

Obama’s three step plan is designed to provide 6 million illegal aliens with legal status, so they can be issued drivers licenses, and be in a very strong position to fraudulently register to vote in the 2016 Presidential election.  The long term goal of Obama is to CHANGE the Republic to a one party Socialist State; his supporters will not hesitate to continue the employment of voter fraud to register illegal aliens, as those ACORN operatives previously employed voter fraud in past elections (ACORN was disbanded following its convictions of voter fraud in federal courts in multiple states; ACORN has morphed into many new named state organizations and those organizations are being funded by the Department of Health Education and Welfare).  After November 4th, when Obama issues the Executive Order to give 6 million illegal aliens legal status and keeps the southern border wide open, as pointed out in the above video, it will be virtually impossible for ICE to enforce Federal Immigration Laws within the Republic, and the Border Patrol will be unable to prevent Illegal aliens from circumventing the lawful inspection process that is supposed to take place at the border to prevent the entry of illegal aliens deemed excludible under Title 8, United States Code, Section 1182 ..

 

According to reports made to one of the endorsed Combat Veterans For Congress, Congressman Duncan D. Hunter, Capt-USMCR (R-CA-52), the Border Patrol told him that they apprehended 4 members of ISIL trying to enter the United States.  The Obama administration’s open border policies have been permitting the entry of ISIL Islamic terrorists, drug smugglers, human smugglers, sex offenders, convicted felons, sex traffickers, Illegal aliens with dangerous infectious & communicable diseases, aliens intent on becoming public charges unlikely to work or seek employment, and its policies have made it very easy for terrorists to smuggle weapons of mass destruction into the United States at will.  

 

Obama issued order that prevented the Border Patrol from detaining or quarantine 90,000+ illegal alien children up to age 18, many of whom were infected with communicable diseases, as well as their masquerading adult chaperones who were illegally entering the wide open southern border (many of those 18 year olds are members of the dangerous M-13 Latin criminal gang involved in sex trafficking and drug smuggling).  By ordering the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to transport those illegal alien children to all 50 states without being properly quarantined, many of those  illegal aliens children spread infectious diseases.  

 

Since August, 46 states have been faced with a D-68 epidemic brought into the US by those illegal aliens children; they have infected over 27,876 American children in grammar schools (from 1970 to date there were only 26 cases of D-68 in the US).   All 50 states have now been saddled with new administrative demands by being required to police 90,000+ illegal aliens for criminal activities.     The taxpayers in 50 states must cover the cost of the housing, education, subsistence, and medical treatment for Illegal alien children, while thousands of newly arriving illegal aliens children continue to flood across the wide open southern border  
 

Obama deployed 4000 members of the 101st Airborne Division and Military Reservists were on a mission to West Africa to try to stem the outbreak of Ebola; those members of the 101st Airborne Division and Military Reservists were insufficiently medically trained to protect themselves from a killer Ebola epidemic.  Medical trained civilian contractors, doctors, nurses, lab technicians, and experienced health care workers, who had extensive experience containing infectious diseases should have been deployed to West Africa, not military personnel with 4 hours of training.  The 4000 members of the 101st Airborne Division should have been deployed along the wide open southern border to prevent criminals, terrorists, and illegal aliens with infectious & communicable diseases from entering the United States.  

We encourage all American citizens to financially support and vote for the 31 endorsed Combat Veterans For Congress listed on the Endorsement page of this Web site; they will actively oppose Obama’s three step initiative to compromise the 2016 Presidential election, will aggressively attempt to close the wide open southern border, and will oppose the continued violation of Federal Immigration Law by the Obama administration.

OBAMA ADMINISTRATION QUIETLY PREPARES 'SURGE' OF MILLIONS OF NEW IMMIGRANT ID'S IN VIOLATION OF FEDERAL LAW

 Senate Republican: US Immigration System 'Unlawful,' Lacks 'Integrity'

 

Prior to effectively adjourning for five weeks, Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., used Tuesday'sSenate session to hammer President Barack Obama for proposing changes to immigration laws at the end of the summer without consent from Congress. 

 

The administration is reportedly considering an executive order to provide legal status and work authorization cards to 5 million to 6 million of the more than 11 million illegal immigrants in the United States, which Sessions called 'unlawful.' 

 

"I've urged the president to reconsider this plan and to adhere to his plain statements where he has expressly stated he did not have the power to do what he now, in a complete reversal, states that he will do," Sessions said during a nearly 30-minute floor speech. "It is important for the Congress to stand up and resist the complete erosion of its powers. If these actions are taken, we will have effectively opened the borders of America. We are nearly there already."

Despite no official action from the president ahead of the election, the Obama administration has quietly begun preparing to issue millions of work authorization permits, suggesting the implementation of a large-scale executive amnesty may have already begun. 

Unnoticed until now, a draft solicitation for bids issued by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) Oct. 6 says potential vendors must be capable of handling a “surge” scenario of 9 million id cards in one year “to support possible future immigration reform initiative requirements.”

The request for proposals says the agency will need a minimum of four million cards per year. In the “surge,” scenario in 2016, the agency would need an additional five million cards – more than double the baseline annual amount for a total of 9 million. 

“The guaranteed minimum for each ordering period is 4,000,000 cards. The estimated maximum for the entire contract is 34,000,000 cards,” the document says. 

The agency is buying the materials need to construct both Permanent Residency Cards (PRC), commonly known as green cards, as well as Employment Authorization Documentation (EAD) cards which have been used to implement President Obama's “Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals” (DACA) program. The RFP does not specify how many of each type of card would be issued. 

Jessica Vaughan, an immigration expert at the Center for Immigration Studies and former State Department official, said the document suggests a new program of remarkable breadth. 

The RFP “seems to indicate that the president is contemplating an enormous executive action that is even more expansive than the plan that Congress rejected in the 'Gang of Eight' bill,” Vaughan said. 

Last year, Vaughan reviewed the Gang of Eight's provisions to estimate that it would have roughly doubled legal immigration. In the “surge” scenario of this RFP, even the relatively high four million cards per year would be more than doubled, meaning that even on its own terms, the agency is preparing for a huge uptick of 125 percent its normal annual output. 

It's not unheard of for federal agencies to plan for contingencies, but the request specifically explains that the surge is related to potential changes in immigration policy. 

“The Contractor shall demonstrate the capability to support potential 'surge' in PRC and EAD card demand for up to 9M cards during the initial period of performance to support possible future immigration reform initiative requirements,” the document says. 

A year ago, such a plan might have been attributed to a forthcoming immigration bill. Now, following the summer's border crisis, the chances of such a new law are extremely low, giving additional credence to the possibility the move is in preparation for an executive amnesty by Obama. 

Even four million combined green cards and EADs is a significant number, let alone the “surge” contemplated by USCIS. For instance, in the first two years after Obama unilaterally enacted DACA, about 600,000 people were approved by USCIS under the program. Statistics provided by USCIS on its website show that the entire agency had processed 862,000 total EADs in 2014 as of June. 

Vaughan said EADs are increasingly coming under scrutiny as a tool used by the Obama administration to provide legalization for groups of illegal aliens short of full green card status. 

In addition to providing government approval to work for illegal aliens, EADs also cost significantly less in fees to acquire, about $450 compared to more than $1000. In many states, EADs give aliens rights to social services and the ability to obtain drivers' licenses. 

Vaughan noted there are currently about 4.5 million individuals waiting for approval for the green cards having followed immigration law and obtained sponsorships from relatives in the U.S. or otherwise, less than the number of ID cards contemplated by the USCIS “surge.” 

USCIS officials did not provide additional information about the RFP by press time. 

  

US Embassies in Ebola-Stricken Countries Are "Expediting" the Processing of Visas for Non-US Citizens to Enter US

The primary responsibility of the leader of “any” country is to safeguard the wellbeing, security, and health of the citizens of their country.  Current polls indicate that the American people have lost confidence in the elected leader of the United States, because the Obama administration is not taking the necessary steps to restrict potentially infected passengers from Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone in West Africa from entering the United States, in order to safeguard the lives and security of American citizens from being infected with the Ebola virus.  The occupant of the Oval Office responsibility is to protect the health and safety of all Americans from being infected with diseases being carried by millions of infected Illegal aliens flooding across the wide open southern border.

To date 22 countries have imposed travel bans on passengers with passports from West African countries (including the African nations of Togo, Gabon, the Ivory Coast, Senegal, Rwanda, Chad, South Sudan, Namibia, Angola, South Africa, Botswana, Congo, Lesotho, Equatorial Guinea, Kenya, and Madagascar) and 14 other countries have imposed travel restrictions on passengers with passports from West Africa.  Yet CDC Director Thomas Friedman and senior Obama administration officials have said restricting passengers, who may be infected with the Ebola virus, from entering the United States would be racist and can’t be done because it would negatively affect the economies of those countries.  So the US Embassies in Ebola infected countries continue to issue visas for non-US citizens so they can enter the United States.  According to Judicial Watch, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has even been “expediting” visas for the “Ebola countries.”  DHS officials would not have been doing so, if they had not been instructed to expedite those visas by officials in the Obama administration. 

It has been 1 month since a 42 year old Liberian passenger from West Africa, infected with the Ebola virus arrived in Dallas.  He lied while being screened on departure from West Africa and lied a second time on being screened on entry to the US, he was then permitted to enter the United States without being quarantined (his lies are proof that screening does not work).  He eventually came down with Ebola, and after prolonged treatment, succumbed.  Subsequently two highly trained infectious disease health care nurses, who had been following the inept CDC guidelines while treating the infected passenger, also became infected with the Ebola virus; 75 people who came in contact with the deceased passenger and the 2 nurses are being monitoring for Ebola.  In addition hundreds of passenger who were on a Frontier Airline with one of the infected nurses, after the CDC allowed her to fly on a commercial airline, are also being monitored.   

Just one infected airline passenger has resulted in a requirement for health officials to monitor over 300 Americans because they have the possibility of coming down with Ebola.  Despite the massive health care controls and costs that have resulted from only one Ebola infected incoming passenger from a West African country who entered the United States, CDC Director Thomas Friedman, who was a community organizer following his graduation from Oberlin College in 1982 and who is recognized as an extreme social justice advocate, is firmly against a travel ban.   Even though Friedman knows that the US Health Care system in the United States does not have the capacity to isolate and treat more than 4 Ebola infected patients at any one time, he continues to vigorously opposed a travel ban on arriving passengers with passports from West Africa or by quarantining them.  

Obama has refused to put a procedure in place to either restrict the entry passenger from West Africa or quarantining them.  We know that 150 passengers from West Africa are being allowed to enter the United States every day.  The American people have been  told that only 94% of those 150 passengers entering the US each day are being screened at 5 US International Airports,  when passengers from West Africa are flying into 9 US International airports (and we know that screening does not work).  So the screening procedures that do not work, and established up by CDC Director Friedman to control a killer disease are so poorly established that they still allow 3285 passengers from Ebola infected West African countries to avoid the screening measures Friedman set up (we know screening has not work, because passengers lie).

The polls indicate the American people are very concerned about the transmission of the Ebola virus and that 66% of them want a travel ban imposed on all passengers arriving in the United States from West Africa.  Yesterday The Washington Times reported that experts in infectious disease control, point to an experiment 25 years ago that proved one Ebola strain in monkeys had the potential for becoming airborne.  Yet Judicial Watch, the government watchdog group, alleged on Friday that Obama is formulating plans to admit Ebola-infected non-US citizens into the US for treatment---we are finding it hard to believe that report is accurate, because it would be an insane indefensible new Obama administration policy if it were true.    

From the turn of the century until Illegal Immigrants from Mexico were allowed to violate Federal Immigration Laws, no immigrants were ever allowed to set foot on the US mainland unless they were first landed on an island in New York Harbor, Ellis Island, so they could be screened to determine if they were carriers of infectious and communicable diseases.  For the last 6 years, CDC Director Friedman has not done his job and looked the other way while millions of Illegal aliens have flooded across the wide open southern border, with the knowledge that many have been carriers of infectious diseases.  Because in the past illegal aliens clinics processing them have found that a percentage of them have been infected with many communicable diseases, such as tuberculosis, whooping cough, smallpox, cholera, diphtheria, plague, yellow fever, measles, leprosy, pertussis, enterovirus D-68, etc.    

Most recently 90,000 Illegal aliens up to age 18 from Central America, improperly referred to as children by the Obama administration and the left of center liberal media establishment, flooded across the wide open southern border, along with Illegal aliens adults masquerading as their chaperones.  Yet CDC Director Friedman did not insist that those illegal alien children be medically screen for infectious diseases nor did he quarantine any of them, before they were immediately transported to all 50 states.  After the Illegal alien children entered the United States, the Obama administration acted as human smugglers and flew the Illegal immigrant children to all 50 states forcing their enrollment in public grammar schools.   

Hospitals across the nation began reporting an explosion of a severe respiratory illnesses among children and have been reporting an outbreak of an epidemic of the enterovirus (referred to as either D-68 .or EV-D68).  That enterovirus epidemic occurred only after the surge of Illegal alien children flooded across the wide open southern border from Central America, a region where the D-68 is prevalent among young children.  Up until the surge there was no enterovirus epidemic in the US and D-68 was rare; between 1970 and 2005 only 26 cases of D-68 were reported in the US.  In the below listed article, to date 27,876 cases of D-68 in 46 states have been reported to the CDC since August 18th, but those cases have been covered up.  Six children and 2 adults have died to date from the epidemic.  CDC Director Friedman refuses to explain where the epidemic that infected more than 27,000 children came from and has been spreading misleading information about the epidemic.  

Children’s Hospital Colorado treated 3,600 children between August 18 and September 24, and at least 692 since.  On September 5th, Cincinnati Children’s Hospital saw  a one day record of 540 children.  The emergency room was filled to capacity in USA Children’s & Women’s Hospital in Mobile, Alabama that reported 340 cases by September 12th.  Children’s Mercy Hospital in Kansas City, Missouri had 450 patients as of September 7th, 60 of whom required intensive care.  At least 6 Chicago area hospitals were so overwhelmed that they stopped admitting patients under 18 “until further notice.”  Many infected children across the nation are experiencing some form of paralysis.  The Obama administration and the left of center liberal media establishment have covered up the epidemic brought to the United States by Illegal alien children up to age 18 being allowed to enter the wide open southern border without being quarantined. 

Obama administration officials and CDC Director Friedman have been telling the press and the American people that deploying 4000 (the number has increased from 3000) improperly trained members of the US Armed Forces the Reserves into an Ebola plagued and infectious environment will not result in their being infected with the Ebola virus.  Yet we know that 277 doctors, nurses, and health care professionals in Western Africa who took every conceivable precaution possible to avoid contracting Ebola are now dead.  So when CDC Director Friedman blamed the poor nurses who contracted Ebola, and said they “breached protocol” and repeated the Obama administration mantra that it is extremely hard to contract Ebola---he wasn’t telling the truth, but the American people are now becoming very familiar with Obama administration politically appointed officials lying to the American public.   

Because of how the Obama administration has handled this very serious Ebola crisis, resulting from just one Ebola infected case, and because medical professionals in infectious disease control have warned that there is a very serious risk in deploying 4000 untrained military personnel from the 101st Airborne Division and military Reservists to West Africa’s Ebola infested environment, the American people have a high degree of concern for their safety.  Americans have watched while Obama has disregarded warnings about the health and safety of military personnel being improperly trained and then deployed to an infectious disease environment.  We have been informed that members of the US Armed Forces and Reserve personnel with only receive 4 hours of training before being deployed to Ebola infested West African.  

Common sense and sound judgment should have dictated that Obama only send highly trained civilian contractors with in depth medical experience who knew how to deal with infectious disease control.  To order military personnel who have been involved in combat for 13 years, are suffering mentally from the prolonged combat, and are not able to resist an order to be deployed to fight an infectious killer disease.  To take military personnel away from their families, and expose them to the incredible risk of contracting Ebola is unconscionable.  It is another example of a string of extremely poor judgment calls by Obama in his handling this Ebola health crisis.  The mission for the US Military is not to deploy throughout the world to fight dangerous infectious disease; the mission of the US Armed Forces is to combat enemies of the Republic, to combat terrorist throughout the world, and to secure the borders of the United States.

Health care professionals and civilian contractors who are professionally trained in infectious disease prevention should have been sent to West Africa; common sense dictates that doctors, nurses, and lab technicians who are properly trained and understand how to deal with Ebola are the personnel who should deal with Ebola.  CDC Director Friedman is now telling the broader medical community in the US that all hospital and medical personal in the US must be “retrained,” because they haven’t seemed to be able to handle the medical procedures designed to prevent them from contracting Ebola.  If that is true, then members of the 101 Airborne Division and Reservists, with 4 hours of training, who have never been involved in controlling infectious diseases can’t possibly be expected to protect themselves from the Ebola infectious disease.  

If the occupant of the Oval Office ordered the CDC to quarantine all arriving passengers with passports from Ebola infected countries in West Africa,  he would also have had to require the quarantining of Illegal aliens flooding across the wide open southern border.  It would not be politically correct to close the wide open southern border----so political correctness is hazarding the health of the nation.  For one month, the American people have heard representatives of the Obama administration and CDC Director Friedman poorly presented and inept augments about why the United States should not restrict entry of passengers with visas from West Africa or quarantine them for the 21 ingesting period.  Yet 22 countries have already imposed a travel ban and have restricted all travel, and 14 other countries are imposing other control procedures on passengers with passports from West Africa.   

Because the Secretary of Health Education & Welfare, CDC Director Friedman, and the occupant of the Oval Office haven’t been able to properly deal with this health care crisis, the Occupant of the Oval Office decided to appoint someone qualified to deal with the problems he is faced with.  Instead of appointing a public health medically trained professional in infectious disease control, Obama appointed another Czar who is an attorney (which is nonsense on the face of it), and has him reporting to Susan Rice (a further indication of extremely poor management).  The new Ebola Czar is simply a political appointment to take the pressure off of himself ,and CDC Director Friedman, who has proven to be incompetent in his handling of the epidemic affecting over 27,000 children, and he has also proven to be way over his head in dealing with this Ebola crisis.   

There is no reason why for the next 6 months Obama should not order the State Department to instruct the Consular Service to cease issuing visas to all travelers from West Africa; that action would permit health care medical teams and hospitals throughout the nation with the required time to be properly trained to deal with the potential of an Ebola epidemic.  Once that is accomplished, and for the health and safety of all Americans, all Immigrants with the potential risk of carrying infectious disease, whether entering the nation as airline passengers or entering the United States across the wide open southern border, must be quarantined as they once were on Ellis Island (and just as CBP Inspectors currently quarantines dogs and cats).  That can only be accomplished if Obama will deploy 4000 US Military personnel to the wide open southern border to secure it once and for all.

We encourage you to support the election of the 31 endorsed Combat Veterans For Congress listed on the Endorsements page through the above website menu, they will work to close the wide open southern border.

How an Obama Administration Policy is Destroying Lives 

James Simpson  —   October 16, 2014

In late August and early September, hospitals across the nation began reporting an explosion of severe respiratory illnesses among children. Children’s Hospital Colorado treated about 3,600 children between August 18 and September 24, and at least 692 since. On September 5th, Cincinnati Children’s Hospital saw a one day record of 540 kids. The emergency room was filled to capacity. Mobile, Alabama’s USA Children’s and Women’s Hospital reported 340 cases by September 12th. Children’s Mercy Hospital in Kansas City, Missouri had seen 450 patients as of September 7th, 60 of whom required intensive care. At least six Chicago area hospitals were so overwhelmed that they stopped admitting patients under 18 “until further notice.” Many infected children across the country are experiencing some form of paralysis. Six children and at least two adults have died.

Government health officials haven’t offered any explanation for the unusual outbreak. The Centers for Disease Control has pointedly refused to disclose the states where children have died or even specific locations of outbreaks. State and local officials are similarly closed mouthed. Except for suggesting routine precautions, public officials largely refuse to offer any details whatsoever, and in some cases have spread misinformation. And the media seem incapable of penetrating the wall of silence, simply repeating the official narrative. But there is significant, almost irrefutable evidence that this outbreak is the direct result of this year’s illegal alien invasion from Central America.

Frequently called the “mystery” illness, no healthcare professional has offered an explanation for how it got here or why it is hitting children now. The worst cases have been identified as stemming from Enterovirus D68 (EV-D68). Enterovirus are among the most common pathogens, responsible for a wide variety of illnesses, including polio, but usually infections are mild. There are over 100 Enterovirus variants and about 10 to 15 million cases in the U.S. each year. The CDC explains away the outbreak by citing this figure, and noting that many more children die each year from influenza.

But this outbreak is different. Before this year, the D68 strand was almost unheard of. Between 1970 and 2005, only 26 cases of EV-D68 were reported in the U.S. Yet this year, in less than two months, the CDC has reported 780 cases in 46 states, and there are likely many more undiagnosed. Half the specimens tested by the CDC are EV-D68, but since August there have been thousands—perhaps even tens of thousands—of severe respiratory cases treated around the country that the CDC has not tested. D68 also seems to be associated with the paralysis occurring among many of the infected, but doctors are unsure how. In early 2014, a polio-like virus crippled 25 children in California. Enterovirus was suspected, and the symptoms were similar to those seen among children in Asia and Australia.

Unprecedented

During the start of any school year, an uptick in communicable illnesses among children is typical, but this year’s outbreak of serious respiratory illnesses is extraordinary. Children’s Mercy Hospital’s division director for Infectious Diseases, Dr. Mary Anne Jackson, called it “unprecedented,” adding that “It’s worse in terms of scope of critically ill children who require intensive care…I’ve practiced for 30 years in pediatrics, and I’ve never seen anything quite like this.”

The timing of the outbreak is also unusual. While human enterovirus (HEV) are common in the summer, they mostly infect the gastrointestinal tract. Human rhinoviruses (HRV), which cause the common cold, are the usual suspects in respiratory illnesses, but those become prevalent in flu season—the winter months.

Criminal Negligence

The flood of illegal alien minors coming across our southern border this year is the elephant in the room that no one is mentioning. Most of these youths traveled from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras—the so-called Northern Triangle states. Unlike America, where EV-D68 is almost unheard of, in Central and South America it is very common. A recent study of Central and South American young people (ages 0 – 25) infected with influenza-like infections (ILI), identified HRVs (548) and HEVs (84). EV-D68 was identified in 12 percent of the HEV infections. While not a lot in absolute numbers (10) that is an astounding rate when compared with the historical rarity of D68 in American children. Among age groups, those from under one-year-old to age five had two-thirds of all HEVs. These were random samples. See the chart below.

The report concludes:

In Latin America as in other regions, HRVs and HEVs account for a substantial proportion of respiratory viruses identified in young people with ILI, a finding that provides additional support for the development of pharmaceuticals and vaccines targeting these pathogens.

The only Northern Triangle country included in the study was El Salvador, but 50 percent of the El Salvador group had HEV, a larger percentage than any other country.

According to Customs and Border Protection (CBP) a total of 15,800 Salvadoran youths between 0 and 17 years of age were apprehended at the border between January 1 and August 31 of this year. Another 31,543 Honduran and Guatemalan youths came with them. Furthermore, this is not the total count. To date, 68,434 unaccompanied alien youths have been apprehended this year.

Most were not unaccompanied either. News reports regularly “forget” to mention that another 65,000 “family units” actually accompanied them. In total, 242,329 “Other Than Mexicans” crossed the border so far this year. The swamped holding facilities used for these illegals acted as incubators for a host of virulent illnesses, including swine flu, tuberculosis—even drug resistant TB—pneumonia, many other undiagnosed respiratory illnesses, measles, chicken pox, and numerous parasites. According to health officials, Enterovirus infections are usually the “fecal-to-oral route.” However, significantly, respiratory and oral-to-oral infection occur “in crowded living conditions.” The virus can survive for days at room temperature.

The DHS Inspector General acknowledged that “Many UAC and family units require treatment for communicable diseases, including respiratory illnesses, tuberculosis, chicken pox, and scabies.” The CDC called it an “urgent humanitarian situation.” A Federal Law Enforcement Training Center facility in Artesia, New Mexico used to house illegals was locked down following an outbreak of chickenpox this summer. CBP personnel have become sick with scabies, chicken pox and lice while tending the illegals in border facilities.

CBP Agent Ron Mermen is the health and safety director of National Border Patrol Council Local 1613. He works in the San Diego, California area and charged that DHS“knowingly transported illegal immigrants to facilities that were unequipped to process them; disregarded repeated warnings…about the public-health risks posed by the immigrants, many of whom were suffering from infectious diseases; rejected multiple offers of assistance from local officials; and suspended law-enforcement operations at part of America’s southern border…”

He said that more illegals were sent to his Border Patrol facility than it could handle, and they were released without proper health screening, adding that the order to do this was “concealed for unknown reasons” from the public and lawmakers. Finally, he said that caring for the flood of illegals took CBP away from its primary job of protecting the border. As a result drug traffickers had an open invitation to operate in the critical area along California’s I-15 Interstate. The border was essentially left unchecked. Zermeno’s reward was to be disciplined for blowing the whistle.

Given the many children and families likely carrying EV-D68 and other pathogens before reaching the border, the rapid spread of disease within these holding facilities, and poor or non-existent disease screening, it is not unreasonable to believe that thousands could have been dispersed throughout the U.S. with either a live infection or carrying the virus.

Information Blackout

Media interest in this story has been tepid. When the outbreak began, the sheer number of cases was newsworthy; then the appearance of EV-D68 added fuel to the fire. But since mid-September, little has been published—despite the fact that eight people with D68 have died. Only three of the eight have been identified and little information about the other five has been published. All we know about the two adults, for example, is that they were treated at a Colorado hospital. We know nothing about the other three children. Media have reported the outbreaks, but no one is digging at all.

The CDC will not disclose anything except their regularly updated chart of states, which only reports the total number of D68 cases. They will not disclose which cities, or even which states, have had fatalities from the illness. It would help to know at least the total cases broken down by state. The CDC has the information, since it is the only facility with the capability to test for D68. When reached last week, CDC spokesperson Darlene Foote refused to quantify the number of D68 cases by state. Karen Mason of the CDC’s Division of Viral Diseases said that the CDC defers to the state health departments on such details, and suggested contacting them for the information. They would provide no further information.

State health departments had little to add. When queried about total state cases in Virginia, for example, the health department responded that they didn’t keep track of total cases because EV-D68 is not reportable under Virginia code and they do not have the facilities to test for it in any event. Following confirmation by the CDC, Virginia did report cases in the “northern region of Virginia, as well as the central and eastern regions.” They would not disclose any more detailed information regarding the locations of these outbreaks, citing “privacy” concerns.

It is virtually impossible to learn directly which schools took in this year’s crop of illegal children. As result of a liberal 1982 Supreme Court decision, all public schools must accommodate them. Furthermore, School districts are not allowed to ask about a student’s citizenship or immigration status, nor can they inquire of parents’ immigration status. To establish residency for eligibility to a certain school district, the parent can provide minimal proof, for example a utility or phone bill, or even just an affidavit.

Nonetheless, we can confirm that this year’s illegals have been placed in almost every county that has reported an outbreak of EV-D68. HHS provides a list of 137 counties within the U.S. where illegals have been placed this year. It is incomplete because they only list those counties that received 50 or more illegals. The table below lists those counties, and the number of unaccompanied alien children (UACs) placed in them; and compares that with reported Enterovirus outbreak locations. Note that while hundreds of cases have been reported nationwide, only a few states have identified where outbreaks occurred.

a Influenza-Like Infections
b Uncertain how many, if any illegals were located in these counties

Child Deaths 

We can also confirm that schools where outbreaks have occurred all accept “undocumented children” into their programs, although it was impossible to determine whether or not this included this year’s arrivals.

Four-year-old Mercer County, New Jersey, pre-schooler Eli Waller died in late September as the direct result of EV-D68. His was the first case linked directly to the disease. The Hamilton school district has a population of 14 percent “foreign born,” mostly from Guatemala. Yardville Elementary, the school he attended, has an English as a second language (ESL) program, although it has a lower proportion than other district schools.

Ten-year-old Emily Ortrando of Cumberland, Rhode Island was admitted to the hospital with EV-D68 in late September and died of complications resulting from a staph infection shortly thereafter. Doctors are unsure what role D68 played in her death, but it likely at least reduced her resistance to infection. Community Elementary, where Emily attended school, is one of six elementary schools in the district, all of which offer ESL. The district boasts that it is a magnet for such students.

Madeline Reid, a twenty-one month old toddler from Clinton Township, Michigan, died on October 10 following three weeks on life support in Detroit hospitals. Clinton is in Macomb County, a suburb of Detroit. While the HHS chart only lists Kent County, home to the city of Grand Rapids, UACs would likely be in or near Detroit as well. In nearby Washtenaw County, a baby has become paralyzed by Enterovirus.

In Alabama, five year old Kinley Galbreath has been completely paralyzed for one month, able to communicate with her mother only by blinking her eyes. She was ill for one week before being admitted to intensive care. She said, “Mommy, my hands are going numb.”

There were 12 cases of paralysis and at least two adult deaths in Denver, Colorado, which recorded a huge number of young patients with severe respiratory illnesses in August and September. The Denver area is home to a very large illegal alien population, despite recording placement of only 64 UACs this year. Information regarding the other three deaths is simply nonexistent.

In Baltimore, Maryland, nine-year-old Drew Ratajczak made news following hospitalization for D68-like symptoms. Like Virginia and other states, Maryland’s state health department says there is no requirement for doctors to report individual cases, so his case was never diagnosed. Fortunately he recovered. Drew is a student at Red House Run elementary in Rosedale. According to the school’s website, 6 percent of students are enrolled in the Limited English Proficiency program. The principal said that there were new children admitted to the LEP program this year, but they are every year. She could not say whether or not these children were among this year’s flood of illegals. They are not provided that information, and as cited earlier, they are not allowed to ask. She said that the kids are sent to the school and they must accommodate them, no questions asked.

So the death toll is eight and counting. Thousands of children have fallen ill. Some are partially paralyzed. Nasty diseases eradicated in the U.S., like tuberculosis and polio, may be getting reintroduced, courtesy of our southern neighbors. New diseases, unheard of in the U.S., like Dengue Fever, the deadly Chagas Disease, and Chikungunyahave already appeared. SOUTHCOM Commander, General John Kelly recently suggested that if Ebola becomes prevalent in Mexico or Central America, then “it’s Katie bar the door.” There will be a mass rush for the border as millions surge north to escape or seek medical attention. The first case of Ebola in Mexico was diagnosed in August.

Meanwhile, President Obama continues to promote his open borders agenda. In a speech on October 2nd at the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute awards dinner he said, “No force on earth can stop us!” Obama also mentioned that two illegal alien “dreamers” accompanied him in the presidential limo from the White House to the event.

Far from being a random development, the growing public concerns over Ebola and the Enterovirus appear to be playing into the administration’s game plan to distract public attention from the accumulation of scandals that have as yet elicited zero accountability from the Perpetrator-in-Chief and his minions.
 

W.H.O. Contradicts CDC; Ebola can be Spread via Coughing, Sneezing & Touching Contaminated Surfaces

In the below listed article, the World Health Organization (W. H. O.) is contradicting the Obama administration appointed bureaucrats at CDC who keep telling the American people, that sending 3000 members of the US Armed Forces to fight Ebola in Western Africa will not negatively affect their health.  

CDC has also been assuring the American people that there is no need to control entry of all people arriving from West Africa or canceling those flights, when other countries health care professionals are controlling entry of people trying to entry from West Africa and cancelling all flights from West Africa.  

 

Any infectious disease initiative in West Africa should have been initiated by the United Nations, mobilizing representatives from W. H. O. who are well-trained healthcare workers, doctors, and nurses specializing in infectious disease control.  Controlling Ebola in the world is not a US Military mission.

 

Lt Gen William Boykin said. “At a time when our military has been at war for 13 years, suicide is at an all-time high, [post-traumatic stress disorder] is out of control and families are being destroyed as a result of 13 years of war, the last thing that Obama should be doing is sending people into West Africa to fight Ebola.” 

Lt Gen Boykin pointed out that there will be no inoculation for Ebola prior to troop deployment. Defense Department spokesman Rear Admiral John Kirby said that the only preparation service members will receive before heading to West Africa will be “a briefings” on the disease.  The Obama administration has been repeatedly warned that Ebola will be contracted by those military personnel who are being forced to go to West Africa, regardless of the fear the military member has for their own health, and the military member in west Africa has for the health of their families and children. 

“It still comes back to the question whether this is a military mission,” Lt Gen Boykin said. “At this point, no. It is not a military mission, and given the 13 years of war, this is the last thing we should be doing.”

Instead of deploying 3000 US military personnel to the southern border of the United States to secure it, the current resident of the Oval Office is sending 3000 members of the Armed Forces to West Africa with the threat that they may be infected by Ebola.  

 

The serious threat of infectious diseases in the United States  is being enabled by the Obama administration and the inept leadership of the Congress who are doing absolutely nothing while thousands of Illegal aliens, carrying infectious diseases, enter the nation thru the wide open southern border.  

 

Following the entry of thousands of Illegal alien children, the Obama administration is acting as human smugglers by flying those Illegal infected aliens to populate all 50 states and forcing enrolment of their children in public schools.  Those newly entering Illegal aliens children are suspected of being the carriers of infectious disease, infecting American children with various diseases, including new strange infectious diseases never experienced before in public schools.   

 

The stakes are so high, that the American people can’t possibly trust politicians at the CDC and the Obama administration who are telling them not to worry, because they are taking proper steps to prevent Ebola spreading in the country-----every preventive measure should be taken, including restricting entry of people from West Africa unless they are held in isolation off shore for 2 months before allowing entry, and replacing 3000 US Armed Forces personnel deployed to West Africa with properly trained healthcare professionals.

W.H.O. contradicts CDC, admits Ebola can spread via coughing, sneezing and by touching contaminated surfaces

Wednesday, October 08, 2014
by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger
Tags: Ebola transmissiondirect contactaerosolized particles

 

(Natural News) The World Health Organization has issued a bulletin which confirms what Natural Newshas been asserting for weeks: that Ebola can spread via indirect contact with contaminated surfaces and aerosolized droplets produced from coughing or sneezing.

"...wet and bigger droplets from a heavily infected individual, who has respiratory symptoms caused by other conditions or who vomits violently, could transmit the virus -- over a short distance -- to another nearby person," says a W.H.O. bulletin released this week. [1] "This could happen when virus-laden heavy droplets are directly propelled, by coughing or sneezing..."

That same bulletin also says, "The Ebola virus can also be transmitted indirectly, by contact with previously contaminated surfaces and objects."

In other words, the WHO just confirmed what the CDC says is impossible -- that Ebola can be acquired by touching a contaminated surface.

CDC remains in total denial, spreading dangerous disinformation about Ebola transmission vectors

This information published by the WHO directly contradicts the ridiculous claims of the CDC which continues to insist Ebola cannot spread through "indirect" means.

According to the CDC, Ebola can only spread via "direct contact," but the CDC is basing this assumption on the behavior of the Ebola outbreak from 1976 -- nearly four decades ago.

The CDC, in fact, continues to push five deadly assumptions about Ebola, endangering the lives of Americans in the process by failing to communicate accurate safety information to health professionals and the public.

Because of the CDC's lackadaisical attitude about Ebola transmission, the Dallas Ebola outbreak may have been made far worse by people walking in and out of the Ebola-contaminated Duncan apartment while wearing no protective gear whatsoever.

Because the CDC sets the standards for dealing with infectious disease in the United States, when the CDC claims Ebola can only spread via "direct contact," that causes emergency responders, Red Cross volunteers and even family members to conclude, "Then we don't even need to wear latex gloves as long as we're not touching the patient!"

Not "airborne" but can spread through the air

Both the CDC and the WHO continue to aggressively insist that Ebola is not an "airborne" disease. "Ebola virus disease is not an airborne infection," says the WHO bulletin. But that same bulletin describes the ability of Ebola to spread through the air via aerosolized droplets.

The medical definition of "airborne," it turns out, is a specific, narrow definition that defies the common understanding of the term. To most people, "airborne" means it can spread through the air, and Ebola most certainly can spread through the air when it is attached to aerosolized particles of spit, saliva, mucus, blood or other body fluids.

The CDC has now admitted there is a slight possibility of Ebola mutating to become "airborne" but says that chance is very small. [2] However, all honest virologists agree that the longer Ebola remains in circulation in West Africa, replicating among human hosts, the more chances it has to mutate into an airborne strain.

But the virus doesn't need to mutate to continue to spread. It has already proven quite capable of spreading via indirect contact in a way that all the governments of the world have been utterly unable to stop. Despite the best efforts of the CDC and WHO, Ebola continues to replicate out of control across West African nations. Even in the United States, the Dallas "patient zero" incident has reportedly caused 100 people to be monitored for possible Ebola infections.

This is why government claims that "we have this under control" are just as much hogwash as the claim that Ebola can only spread via "direct contact."

But that seems to be the default response of government to all legitimate threats: first, deny realityand misinform the public. Keep people in the dark and maybe the whole thing can be swept under the rug... at least until the mid-term elections.
 

Pink Slips For 90,000 Military Veterans; Replaced by Unscreened Illegal Aliens

On September 25, 2014 the Obama administration announced it would, once again, act unilaterally to provide Illegal alien “DREAMERS” with the opportunity to join the U.S. Armed Forces and be rewarded with an expedited pathway to United States citizenship.  While US Military at the same time, personnel serving in Combat in Afghanistan began receiving pink slips.  The Obama administration is planning to discharge 90,000 American citizens who are members of the US Armed Forces, many of whom are fully trained Combat Veterans, and speak, read, and comprehend fluent English.  Obama is intent on replacing hose American citizens in the US Armed Forces with Illegal aliens, many of whom can’t properly speak, read, and comprehend English.  Please review the below listed article by William Hamilton, J.D., and Ph.D.

Obama is planning on replacing loyal American Combat Veterans, who need their paying billets, with Illegal aliens at a time when 40 million Americans are unemployed, on food stamps, and would gladly join the US Armed Forces to obtain a paying jobs.  This program of replacing US Citizens in the US Armed Forces with Foreign Nationals, who can’t properly speak, read, or properly comprehend English.  That latest Obama initiative is extremely dangerous to the National Security, of the Republic, and is being supported by leftist and Marxist elected members of Congress.  

 

Consider the fact that under the provisions of Title 18 U.S. Code § 922 - Unlawful Acts (Firearms) it is a felony for an Illegal alien to possess a firearm.

While the Obama administration has been adamant about making it more difficult for United States Citizens to possess firearms, they are initiating a policy in violation of Federal Law, to clear the way to arm Illegal aliens.  Those Illegal aliens have been granted temporary lawful status without so much as a face-to-face interview, let alone a field investigation, yet they are being authorized to possess firearms in violation of another of the many federal law Obama illegally continues to violates, he will be providing those Illegal aliens but with some of the best firearms training in the world.  Illegal aliens are not the sons and daughters of American Citizens, we believe the sons and daughters of American citizens would not fire on their fellow American citizens if ordered to do so, but the Obama administration knows foreign nationals would fire on American citizens if ordered to do so.  

 

The Illegal aliens will be recruited to join he US Armed Forces from the Obama administration’s ill-conceived Deferred Action-Childhood Arrival Program (DACA) that has already provided hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens, up to age 31, with temporary lawful status and has provided them with identity documents, without so much as a face-to- face interview by ICE or Immigration officials.  None of them have been screened to determine if some of them might be Islamic Terrorists posing as Mexican nationals or fugitive criminals who have avoided criminal prosecution in the United States.  The Obama administration knows there are no resources to conduct field investigations on hundreds of thousands of DACA Illegal aliens, being given blank temporary lawful status, in order to check their applications, to uncover fraud, or to determine if they have criminal records. 

 

On October 28, 2013, Californians for Population Stabilization (CAPS) posted a commentary about the dangers posed by the current failures of the Immigration System’s ability to determine if Islamic Terrorists and criminals who have been designated in the DACA Program, to determine if they pose a serious threat to National Security, to threaten public safety, and to determine if they can game the system. 

 

The Obama administration will direct the US Armed Forces to recruit Illegal aliens, many of whom cannot speak, read, or comprehend English,  from the those in the DACA program, in order to replace the 90,000 well trained American citizen Combat Veterans, who speak, read and comprehend English (many of whom are being given pink slips to be discharged early while actively engaged in combat in Afghanistan).   Dumping thousands of the files of those Illegal aliens in the DACA Program, who are being recruited into the US Armed Forces, on to the desks of Immigration Officers, who already cannot handle their daily workload, would only serve to exacerbate the required careful review of the files of those Illegal aliens---they just won’t be properly reviewed and will result in an extremely dangerous National Security issue.  The primary function for the occupant of the Oval Office is to protect the National Security of the nation and the American citizens.  

 

Obama and his allies in Congress are posing a very serious National Security threat to the Republic, to the US Armed Forces, and to the safety of all American citizens in the Republic.  We encourage every person who receives this E-mail to support members of Congress who oppose Obama’s program to discharge US citizens in the US Armed Forces who are trained Combat Veterans, in order to replace them with Illegal aliens whose loyalty is with Mexico not to the Republic.  The 31 endorsed Combat Veterans For Congress listed in the attachment will oppose Obama’s very dangerous threat to our National Security.


  
"Central View," by William Hamilton, J.D., Ph.D.

National Defense: Fire U.S. citizens, replace with illegals.

The Eisenhower Administration relied primarily on the nuclear weapons of our Navy and Air Force to deter Soviet and Red Chinese aggression. Consequently, many U.S. Army units were hollow shells. But President Kennedy's more aggressive foreign policy called for more combat troops and, in particular, for more Special Forces. In Augsburg, West Germany, our battalion received several hundred "legal-immigrant," Spanish-speaking recruits who agreed to serve on active duty in exchange for an accelerated path to U.S. citizenship.

While we welcomed the additional warm bodies to fill our ranks, having to teach them English and how to be soldiers was an enormous burden on our officers and NCOs. We scattered the Spanish speakers throughout our company, giving them the best chance to learn English as rapidly as possible. Other companies kept them segregated into their own platoons. Those recruits learned little English. But some of our "total-immersion" recruits learned the skills of the infantry soldier so well that they even earned the coveted Expert Infantry Badge (EIB).

But now, the Obama Administration plans to pour "illegal" immigrants into an Army that is already issuing pink slips to over 90,000 active-duty soldiers who are U.S. citizens and dumping our volunteer soldiers onto a dismal civilian job market. Question: Why would you fire 90,000 volunteer soldiers who are already U.S. Citizens and who have already learned their military job skills and replace them with illegal immigrants with limited or no English and no previous military training? We report. You decide. 

But wait! There's more: Under the Obama Plan, the "illegal" immigrant relatives of the "illegal" immigrant recruits cannot be deported while their "illegal" immigrant soldier or sailor or Marine is serving on active duty. Also the path of the "illegal" relatives to U.S. citizenship is accelerated the same as the "illegal" immigrant soldier or sailor, or Marine. Again, we report. You decide. 

Our military leadership, to include the current commander-in-chief, is dysfunctional enough already. If you read "Predator: The Secret Origins of the Drone Revolution," by Richard Whittle, you see that inter-service rivalry, the egos of certain senior officers, and in-fighting between the White House, the Pentagon, and the CIA almost killed our most valuable drone asset before it was even born. Under President Bush, on the first night of our attacks against the Taliban, Mullah Omar, the head of the Taliban, was spotted by a Predator drone but, because of twisted lines of authority, he was allowed to escape unharmed. 

If you read "American Spartan: The Promise, the Mission, and the Betrayal of Special Forces Major Jim Gant,"by Ann Scott Tyson, you learn that Jim Gant's idea of winning the war in Afghanistan "One Tribe at a Time" was sabotaged by other officers putting careerism before the mission of getting the Afghan tribes on our side. Wonder what the Taliban thought when President Obama set the date for our withdrawal from Candidate Obama's "good" war? You decide, in November.

President Obama is asking Congress to provide $500 million to the Syrian rebels. When asked by Congress to name the rebel leader to receipt for the $500 million, Secretary of Defense Hagel appeared clueless. That $500 million could keep a lot of loyal GIs from getting pink slips.

National Suicide by Political Correctness

Please read the below listed article by Col Lawrence Sellin, Ph. D, concerning the history of the progressive political correct propaganda programs first developed by the Communist Party and promoted by progressives in the US since the early 50s.  Over the last 6 years the progressive movement has been implemented by the Obama administration by integrating progressive and politically correct policy in all Government Bureaus with the help of 45 czars appointed by Obama who were never confirmed by the US Senate.  The progressive and political correctness indoctrination has been force fed to the captive US Armed Forces negatively affecting Combat Effectiveness, unit cohesiveness, and moral.  While this has been on going, the left of center liberal media establishment has been promulgating progressive political correctness in their media, in order to indoctrinate the American people.  At the same time, the Obama appointees at the Department of Education have promoted Obama’s progressiveness and political correctness in the new anti-American Common Core teaching curriculum for secondary and college educational courses, in keeping with the progressive indoctrination of unsuspecting students by leftists college professors that has been going on since the early 60’s. 

Unsuspecting students at all levels of education are being indoctrinated with this new progressive political correct Common Core agenda approved by the Obama administration which has eliminated civics courses, information about the Founding Fathers, study of the Bill of Rights, analysis on the US Constitution, positive history about how the US abolished slavery, the impressive history about how the US Armed Forces freed millions of people in foreign lands from oppressive dictators and returned the land to the people in those countries, how the free enterprise created the most effective economic engine in the history of mankind, and cover up the Socialism has never worked in any country where it has been tried. 

Now progressives in the Obama administration appointed to the Center for Disease Control are doing nothing to keep American citizens safe from the Ebola epidemic, and are delaying the required precautionary steps necessary to prevent the spread of the Ebola infectious disease from spreading throughout the Republic, because it would not be politically correct.  Obama administration officials have been insinuating that it would be racist to restrict the entry of travelers with passports from countries in West Africa where the Ebola epidemics are rampant.  However, in order to protect their citizens from an Ebola epidemic, the intelligent leaders of African and European countries are restricting flights from West Africa from entering their countries.  The primary function of the leader of any country is to protect the lives of their citizens.

US Immigrations and Customs Officials are not properly screening arriving international passengers insuring where they have traveled, asking the passenger if they have a fever, screening passengers to see if they are sick, and are not thermo-scanning passenger’s temperatures.  Yet, 
US Immigration and Custom Officials are quarantining dogs and cats entering the US, and demanding to examine the medical records of those animals.  Even though the citizens of West African countries have been exposed to a serious Ebola epidemic---and despite repeated calls for restricting flights from West Africa to the United States as African and European countries have restricted those flights from arriving in their countries, the Obama administration refuses to restrict flights from West Africa from entering the US----------after all it would be racist and politically incorrect.  

 A postscript: 

      When the Obama administration asked Israel to send members of its Armed Forces to provide medical assistance to Ebola infected countries in West Africa, their Defense Minister, Moshe Ya’alon, said  “The hell I’ll expose my troops to Ebola.”  It kind of makes you feel warm inside to know that Obama is exposing 3000 US military personnel to Ebola where the infectious disease is rampant in the countries in West Africa where they are being sent---no other member of the 192 United Nations states is exposing their sons and daughters to that killer disease.  

     However, Obama won’t deploy one member of the US Armed Forces to seal the wide open southern border, in order to prevent drug smugglers, human smugglers, Islamic terrorists, 200,000 illegal youth from central America, and Ebola infected Illegal Immigrants from entering the United States.  The 31 endorsed Combat Veterans For Congress will fight to close the wide open southern borders and push to restore US History in educational institutions, vote for them in your Absentee Ballot or at the polls.

 

"Obama is the architect of American decline, and progressivism is the ideology of American suicide. Decline is a choice, but so is liberty. Let us resolve as Americans to make liberty our choice".

National suicide by political correctness

by LAWRENCE SELLIN, PHD October 1, 2014

Barack Obama said "ISIL is not Islamic. No religion condones the killing of innocents."

That definition includes: al- Qa'ida, Abu Sayyaf, Gama'a al-Islamiyya, Hamas, Hizballah, Palestinian Islamic Jihad, Jaish-e-Mohammed, Lashkar-e Tayyiba, Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade, Asbat al-Ansar, al-Qaida in the Islamic Maghreb, Jemaah Islamiya, Ansar al-Islam, Libyan Islamic Fighting Group, al-Shabaab, al-Qa'ida in the Arabian Peninsula, Boko Haram, al-Nusrah Front, Ansar al-Shari'a in Benghazi, Ansar al-Shari'a in Darnah, Ansar al-Shari'a in Tunisia - Well, you get the idea.

As noted recently by Diana West, Americans continue to be perplexed as to how the Obama Administration and the media keep repeating the politically correct propaganda that Islam has nothing to do with jihad. Such widespread, politics- and mass-media-driven brainwashing is not new.

Just as today's politicians, journalists and academics seek to separate Islam from its radical impact; brutal conquest, forced conversion, sex slavery and beheadings. Past opinion-makers worked equally hard to separate communism from its own brand inhuman impact; brutal conquest, forced collectivization, concentration camps and mass murder.

Few Americans realize that political correctness, a policy implicitly promoted by Democrats and established as the de facto totalitarian legal system on American universities, was designed by communists in the 1930s to undermine western civilization and democracy while disguising the nature of the threat.

After the successful 1917 communist revolution in Russia, it was widely believed that a proletarian revolt would sweep across Europe and, ultimately, North America. It did not. The only two attempts at a workers' government in Munich and Budapest lasted only months.

As a result the Communist International began to investigate other ways to create the state of societal hopelessness and alienation necessary as a prerequisite for socialist revolution.

The single, most important organizational component of this conspiracy was a Communist think tank called the Institute for Social Research, popularly known as the Frankfurt School. The task of the Frankfurt School was first, to undermine the Judeo-Christian foundation of Western civilization that emphasized the uniqueness and sacredness of the individual and, second, to determine new cultural forms which would increase the disaffection of the population.

Political Correctness is cultural Marxism translated from economic into cultural terms. Just as in classical economic Marxism, certain groups, i.e. workers and peasants, are a priori good, and other groups, i.e., the bourgeoisie and capital owners, are evil. In the cultural Marxism of Political Correctness certain groups are good, such as feminist women, blacks, ethnic minorities and those who define themselves according to sexual orientation. These groups are deemed to be "victims," and therefore unquestionably good. Similarly, white males and, by extension Western civilization, are determined to be automatically evil, thereby becoming the equivalent of the bourgeoisie in economic Marxism.

Perhaps the most important, if least-known, of the Frankfurt School's successes was the shaping of the electronic media of radio and television into the powerful instruments of social control which they represent today.

With the collapse of the Soviet Union, American universities now represent the largest concentration of Marxist dogma and political correctness in the world. This is not the academy of a republic, but Hitler's Gestapo and Stalin's NKVD rooting out deviationists in the guise of racial, ethnic, gender and cultural sensitivity.

The policies of the Obama Administration reflect what David Horowitz described as an unholy alliance between leftists and radical Islam. They have been brought together by the traits they share - their hatred of Western civilization and their belief that the United States is the embodiment of evil on earth. While Islamic radicals seek to purge the world of heresies and of the infidels who practice them, leftist radicals seek to purge society's collective "soul" of the vices allegedly spawned by capitalism -- those being racism, sexism, imperialism, and greed.

Given the existential threat posed by such ideologies, political correctness can no longer be considered merely a peculiarity of cowardly politicians, a biased media or tenured radicals, but a dangerous subversive element of an anti-American and anti-Western strategy.

But frankly, Mr. Obama, I don't care if ISIL is "Islamic" or not. Wanting us all dead is a sufficient reason to take the war directly and aggressively to them.
