Rep. Miller Introduces the LEAVE Act

Thursday, March 24, 2011, 5:15 PM EDT

Rep. Gary Miller (R-Calif.) has introduced the Loophole Elimination and Verification Enforcement (LEAVE) Act, H.R.1196, which is a comprehensive immigration enforcement bill that would require the use of E-Verify for all employers nationwide, end the practice of birthright citizenship, prohibit states from granting in-state tuition benefits to illegal aliens, increase the number of border patrol and immigration and customs enforcement agents, and assist local municipalities in the enforcement of federal immigration laws, among other things.

Rep. Miller is a long-time champion for reducing overall immigration levels and was identified as a "True Reformer" during the mid-term elections. He also helped create the Reclaim American Jobs Caucus with House Judiciary Chair Lamar Smith (R-Texas) and Rep. Sue Myrick (R-N.C.).

The LEAVE Act was introduced with three original co-sponsors, including Rep. Myrick, Rep. John Campbell (R-Calif.) and Rep. Kenny Marchant (R-Texas).

The LEAVE Act (H.R. 1196) would:

Prohibit dealings that assist or encourage an illegal alien to cross the border or remain in the United States.

Increase alien smuggling penalties including 3 and 30 year prison sentences, depending on the type of offense.

Uphold identification security by specifying what forms of identification may be accepted by the federal government or financial institutions. Accepted forms of identification include a Social Security card with a photo ID, a REAL ID Act compliant identification card, a passport, or a USCIS photo identification card.

Require federal agencies to coordinate with states to develop an electronic birth and death registration system, which would reduce the number of stolen identities and help prevent Social Security fraud.

Mandate new fines and penalties for passport fraud. Make E-Verify (Basic Pilot program) permanent. Require all employees to be verified with the E-Verify program after four years of enactment.

Prevent illegal aliens from working in the U.S. Capitol Complex by prohibiting the House of Representatives and the Senate from awarding contracts to any contractor or subcontractor who does not participate in the E-Verify program.

Close the self-employed subcontractor loophole by withholding funds to a state or local government that does not require all business license applicants to comply with E-Verify. A company can currently hire a subcontractor to provide goods and services, bypassing the E-Verify process.

Prohibit states from issuing driver’s licenses unless they first verify citizenship or lawful immigration status. Require the SSA (Social Security Administration) and IRS (Internal Revenue Service) to share information related to the investigation and enforcement of no-match letters.

Prevent children born to illegal aliens in the United States from obtaining birthright citizenship. Prohibit an illegal alien from renting or owning a home, and make them ineligible for public and Section 8 housing. Specifically, applicants would be required to present an accepted form of identification such as a Social Security card accompanied by a photo ID, a REAL ID compliant identification card, a passport, or a USCIS photo identification card in order to obtain a mortgage or apply for housing benefits.

Prohibit Social Security totalisation agreements that benefit illegal aliens, including the 2004 agreement between the United States and Mexico. Prohibit illegal aliens from receiving Social Security credit for illegal work in the United States.

Prohibit financial and nonfinancial institutions from accepting Individual Taxpayer Identification Numbers (ITIN) or any other foreign-source of identification from an illegal alien, such as a Matricula Consular card. Forms of accepted identification include a Social Security card with a photo ID, a REAL ID compliant identification card, a passport, or a USCIS photo identification card. These requirements also apply to the U.S. Postal Service’s “Dinero Seguro” program and the Federal Reserve’s “Directo a Mexico” program.

Prohibit states from granting in-state tuition to illegal aliens while U.S. citizens and nationals are excluded from the same benefit.

Reinstate the Secure Fence Act by requiring two-layered fencing along the Southwest Border by July 31, 2011. This amends provisions of the FY 2008 Omnibus Appropriations bill that has hindered construction of the border fence.

Add an additional 8,000 Border Patrol agents and 3,000 ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) agents by 2015.

Affirm the right of state and local authorities to enforce immigration laws in the course of carrying out routine law enforcement activities.

Require the DHS (Department of Homeland Security) to provide immigration enforcement training for state and local law enforcement officials.

Reimburse states and localities for costs associated with immigration enforcement by making grants available for equipment, technology, facilities, and other products that directly relate to investigating, apprehending, arresting, detaining, or transporting illegal aliens.

Make the Institutional Removal Program available to all states, which would expedite the deportation of criminal aliens after incarceration.

List all immigration violators in the (NCIC) National Crime Information Center Database.

Expand the State Criminal Alien Assistance Program (SCAAP) to include illegal aliens that have been convicted or charged with a crime.

Prevent the Departments of the Interior and Agriculture from impeding border enforcement activities on public lands.

Prohibit the DHS and DOJ (Department of Justice) from making funds available to cities that provide sanctuary to illegal aliens.

Comment:

Comrades, considering how much this bill will cut into Judeo-Capitalist profits, do you think it has a snowball's chance in hell? King Obama will NEVER sign it, and there's is no way that there would be enough congressional support to override a presidential veto.

This bill will do more to eliminate the illegal problem than any previous efforts. It doesn't go far enough, though. We need to round up these invaders and SEND THEM HOME! But since it won't get past the Oval Office, it doesn't matter.

It will, however be interesting to see the public's response when it is vetoed. Not that it will do any good. ZOG never has cared what the people want. It will just be interesting to see what happens - if they get to hear about it. Because of possible public outcry, the government may try to keep this as low-key as possible. All we can do is wait and see what happens.

BTW, I love the name of this bill: The LEAVE ACT. It's a message to the illegals to LEAVE!

The absolute hatred and contempt for white people by the media and the Obama administration is on full view in this CNN segment.

CNN admits that California’s “whitest county is one of the most desirable places to live in the world.” Then CNN goes on to declare that the county must be integrated and needs an influx of non-whites. The Obama administration has decreed that the county is in violation of the 1965 Civil Rights Act by not having more non-whites.

Obama Orders California's Whitest County To Recruit non-Whites To Move There

The Council Of Conservative Citizens told you that Obama’s Soviet style forced housing decree in Westchester County, NY was only the beginning. Westchester County is 35% non-white. Despite the high number of non-whites, Obama’s goons declared that county was violating the Civil Rights of non-whites by having Jewish and Italian enclaves. The county was ordered to build low income housing and recruit blacks and Latinos to break up these crime free, homogeneous enclaves. While most whites were against it, few were brave enough to speak out. Several CofCC members were among the few who publicly protest the draconian, Soviet style action by the Obama administration.

Now the Obama administration wants California’s whitest, and nicest county to build low income housing and recruit blacks and Latinos to move there! This is the exact same policy carried out by the Soviet Union after their conquest of Eastern Europe. Populations were forcibly moved to break up the ethnic homogeneity.

The following is the definition of Genocide as defined by United Nations General Assembly. Violation is an International Crime, punishable by the International Criminal Court.

…any of the following acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnic, racial or religious group, as such:

(a) Killing members of the group;
(b) Causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group;
(c) Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical
destruction in whole or in part;
(d) Imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group;
(e) Forcibly transferring children of the group to another group.

Comment:

Comrades, this is one of Obama's ways of dealing with "White Flight". If a community gets too, ahem, "dark", many Whites move to a lighter one. Well, Emperor Obama is trying to make that impossible, by making certain we have nowhere to flee to.

It's one thing to make it illegal for Whites to prevent people of colour from moving into their communities, but to actually require them by law to go out and recruit minorities? THAT'S GOING TOO FAR!

I'm not going to go into a whole racial tirade. How many times has that been done, and what good does it do? It's like beating a dead horse. Besides, you already know the score. I just wanted you to be aware of this situation.

BTW, the ANP has a party comrade in Marin County. Unfortunately, he doesn't have a computer. He can get email through his phone, so I'm going to send him this article. It will be interesting to hear from someone I know who actually lives there.

Also, I'd like to thank Comrade Raymond Bxxxxxxx for sending this to me.

Future Bleak In Regards To Retirement

What Does Retirement Really Mean to You?

Knowing how you want to spend your retirement is crucial for knowing when you can afford to retire

Randy Myers

So you’d like to retire in a few years. What does that mean to you? Weeks at the beach? Daily rounds of golf? Globe-trotting? Or would you be content gardening, volunteering and visiting with friends and family near your home? Put another way, what’s a day in retirement really worth to you, and what will it cost?

Most people approach retirement with one question: Can I afford it? A better question: Can I afford it and still do what I want? If what you want is a front-row seat before your TV, fine. But if you want more, factor the associated costs into your retirement budget. Besides day-to-day living expenses -- food and housing, including taxes, utilities and maintenance -- don’t forget the following:

Vacations. Even retirees need an occasional break from the day-to-day routine. Renting a modest beach house for a week or going on a short cruise can easily cost several thousand dollars.

Health care. Without your health, the retirement you want may not be possible, so take care of yourself. The Employee Benefit Research Institute calculates that in retirement, a 65-year-old couple will need as much as $376,000 just to pay health care costs not covered by Medicare. Even if they’re lucky enough to have insurance from a former employer, they’ll still need as much as $235,000 to handle what’s not covered.

Recreation, entertainment, gift-giving. Golf and tennis, dinners with friends, weekend getaways, holiday and birthday gifts, a legacy for your heirs or favorite charities. All these cost money, and you need to budget for them.

Once you know how you’d like to spend your days, this simple three-step calculation will help you determine whether you have saved enough to afford it:

Multiply the size of your retirement nest egg by 4 percent -- the amount financial planners say you can withdraw each year, adjusting annually for inflation, without undue risk of running out of money. [What nest egg? Who can afford to save these days? -Dan]

To that result, add your expected annual income from Social Security and pensions.

From that sum, subtract your projected day-to-day living expenses, plus the cost of vacations, health care, and other discretionary expenses, for a year.

If the number you get is zero or, better yet, a positive number, you’re ready to retire. If not, you’ll need to work longer, save more, scale back your retirement plans, or undertake some combination of all three.

Fast Facts

1. More than two-fifths (41 percent) of Americans in the lowest pre-retirement income level will not have enough resources to cover even basic expenses and uninsured health costs after 10 years of retirement. [It will get worse, you can count on it. - Dan]

2. Almost half of all “early baby boomers” -- those now ages 56 to 62 -- are at risk of not being able to cover basic expenditures in retirement.

3. In 2007, the median value of 401(k) accounts for people under 35 years of age fell to $9,600, from $12,090 in 2004.

Randy Myers is a contributing editor for CFO and contributes small-business articles for MSN's Business on Main. He was a reporter and editor for Dow Jones News Service, a columnist for The Wall Street Journal Europe, and a contributor to Barron's. At Dow Jones & Co., he co-developed and became founding managing editor of A stock market newswire, Dow Jones Professional Investor Report (PIR).

Comment:

First of all, you younger comrades better stop that,"I'm 25 years old. I don't have to worry about retirement for a long time" crap. Even at 25, you need to prepare for retirement. Besides, one day you're 25 and working out, dating, rock climbing, and surfing. The next thing you know you're past 60 and retirement is right around the corner. I found that one out myself, comrades. Sometimes I look in the mirror and think, "What the hell happened to my whole life? I've become my father!"

That's not even the problem. The problem is that in these worsening economic times, who can save for retirement? The situation will inevitably worsen. As far as the Judeo-Capitalists are concerned, we can get ourselves a sign and stand at a freeway off ramp, for all they care. As for ZOG, even for the very few of them who do care, what can they do to help us without money? Our social systems are already overburden because of leeches and illegals sucking it dry.

National Socialism has a retirement plan. Hitler was deeply concerned about those who served ably and faithfully, and had reached the age of retirement. However, even if we had a National Socialist state, it's not all up to the government. We have to prepare for retirement ourselves. It is difficult to save, but every little bit helps. The time to start preparing is at 25, not 65.

Real Estate Crisis Continues To Worsen

The American Dream Has Become A Nightmare

By ADAM GELLER
updated 3/27/2011 12:24:10 PM ET

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — There's only one way in to Windy Ridge — across freight train tracks that zipper up the subdivision on three sides. Living room windows offer views of a cardboard box factory and a Pepsi bottling plant. It's an unlikely place to come looking for the American Dream.

But to appreciate Wigena Tirado's bond with this neighborhood of 133 vinyl-sided starter homes planted on a mostly treeless slope, listen to how she got there.

Tirado, a divorced mother of four with a degree in social work, moved to North Carolina in 2003 searching for a job and counting on a Section 8 low-income housing voucher to cover most of her rent. She moved out of her first home after finding a bullet hole in the front door. She fled the next rental, too, after it was burglarized at 2:30 on a weekday afternoon.

By then, Tirado was teaching at a daycare center. She jumped at one mother's suggestion that she rent the house across from her own.

The three-bedroom house, white with blue shutters, sat on a new street with lots awaiting construction. Tirado liked her neighbors. Her biggest doubt was raised by cards that arrived in the mailbox offering help in battling foreclosure.

Tirado's landlord told her not to worry. But in early 2007, a Mecklenburg County sheriff's deputy rang the doorbell.

"What did you do?" Tirado quizzed her son, John, then 13. The problem, though, was Tirado's house. The owner was in foreclosure and the family had to be out by April.

"I will not be moved from here," Tirado told the bank, offering to buy the place. She had no idea what she was getting into.

Four years later, the nation is finally coming to terms with the gambles and gross errors that pushed the economy, and neighborhoods like Tirado's, over a cliff.

But how do you go about reversing the damage the mortgage disaster has done to families and neighborhoods? Where do you even start? On that afternoon, Tirado's questions went only as far as how to stay put in the house at 4625 Palm Breeze Lane.

And so the battle for Windy Ridge began.

Petri dish of larger experiment

Windy Ridge is a small petri dish in a much larger experiment. Across the country, officials and non-profits are trying to stabilize neighborhoods pummeled by foreclosures — most visibly by buying vacant houses with nearly $7 billion approved by Congress.

In Charlotte, where Windy Ridge followed a nearby subdivision, Peachtree Hills, as the first to undergo triage, it's too soon to know how such efforts will work long-term. But it is already a story worth examining for lessons.

In 2000, a developer bought 38 acres in northwest Charlotte and laid out a subdivision shaped like a saxophone. Nearly all the lots were purchased by a local company, Barber Builders.

Barber built houses — all single-story and sold at a top price of $109,000 — for families with modest paychecks. But a review of county property records and interviews with buyers and residents show Windy Ridge was marketed to investors as an opportunity for steady rental income, with many purchasing multiple homes in quick succession.

Luther Rankin, a former city street maintenance worker who has lived in the subdivision since 2003, recalls being mildly surprised by the age of the property owner who arrived in a new BMW to show him a rental. Only later did Rankin realize his landlord owned four others.

"Who gives that kind of money out to at most a 30-year-old unless your daddy is Donald Trump?" Rankin says.

"Volume was good, so if somebody wanted to buy more than one house we were more than willing to sell it to them," says W. Freeman Barber Jr., who sold the building company about 6 years ago. "Of course, we had no idea of the implications."

Barber said he offered volume discounts to investors who bought multiple homes, but delegated marketing to real estate agents working on commission.

Many investors signed up tenants with federal Section 8 vouchers, given to low-income families to cover rent in the private market. Keith Wesolowski, who bought five houses, said a sales agent presented the subdivision as "newly constructed houses you can use as rental properties and here's Section 8. Here you go."

Early arrivals recall a neighborhood full of potential. Chris Youmans, who moved in with his wife in 2004 with a rent-to-own deal, said he was encouraged to see other black, working-class families in nearby houses. Joana Madruga, an Atlanta investor who bought four houses, recalls the homes and newly seeded lawns as beautifully kept.

It didn't last.

Break-in

Months after Madruga took title, somebody broke in and ransacked three of her houses. The Youmanses' landlord went into foreclosure and the couple lost roughly $5,000 of rent that was supposed to give them an equity stake. They moved to a second house down the street, determined to make a go of it.

By the time Tirado moved in, more investors had stopped making loan payments. But it wasn't until her house went into foreclosure that Tirado made a connection between chronic problems — streetlights gone dark because of unpaid homeowners' fees, frequent break-ins, yards littered with trash — and the mortgages to absentee landlords that were the neighborhood's foundation.

The bank wouldn't sell to Tirado because of a weak credit record. But she stayed when a new investor bought the property.

Many people sought the American Dream in starter homes here. But in this and a neighboring subdivision is a bitter lesson in how the mortgage disaster of the last few years came about.

She went to Homeowners' Association meetings, though she didn't own. She called police repeatedly to report the sound of break-ins, though the lack of streetlights made it difficult to know which house the thumps were coming from. In 2007, police investigated 38 break-ins in Windy Ridge, with 32 more in 2008.

"All of Morning Breeze looks like a war zone," Tirado e-mailed the homeowners board in 2008, with a house-by-house breakdown of grass that needed cutting and trash piling up.

Charlotte police asked Tirado to head up a neighborhood crime watch. Allies like Fausto Alfaro, a guard at the Mecklenburg County Jail whose family bought the house across the street, stepped up calls to police and e-mailed prosecutors when those arrested for break-ins in the neighborhood went on trial.

When Officer Brent Hartley drove through the subdivision, Tirado waved him down at curbside. The police were paying more attention, she knew. Still, sometimes she felt like an army of one.

Subdivisions in decay

In late 2007, staffers in Charlotte's department of neighborhood development, studying data on local foreclosures, focused their attention on fast-decaying new subdivisions.

"To get out in suburbia and to start seeing the same kinds of things you normally see in an inner city neighborhood, it was something that was totally unexpected," says Stanley Watkins, then the department's director.

The highest concentration was in two new subdivisions on the city's northwest side: Windy Ridge and Peachtree Hills, a neighborhood of mostly two-story homes with similar problems.

City officials were working on an action plan when Watkins got a call from Evan Covington-Chavez of the Center for Community Self-Help, a non-profit lender based in Raleigh, N.C., looking for a neighborhood where it might turn the foreclosure tide.

They settled on Peachtree Hills. The city finished sidewalks, stepped up policing and building code enforcement and worked with residents to build a viable homeowners' association. Its most visible triumph came last summer when, thanks to a private grant and 300 volunteers, the neighborhood erected a new playground.

Self-Help tried turning renting families into owners. But banks ignored their calls, letting homes go to investors at auction. So the group changed plans, buying and rehabbing 30 homes and reselling to responsible owners.

On a recent afternoon, Self-Help's Donnetta Collier leads the way through her Peachtree portfolio.The worst is a two-story with windows missing and holes punched in the drywall. But the same floor plan sparkles around the corner, where a chandelier hangs in the dining room and Collier has stocked an upstairs tub with olive oil chamomile bath soap.

"It's a great starter house. It really is. You've just got to find the right people," Collier says.

But Self-Help, which expected a commitment of a few years, now expects a turnaround to take longer. Attendance at homeowners meetings has dropped off. And home prices are falling.

"The goal is to stabilize the neighborhood," Covington-Chavez said. "We started that happening and it felt really good to see we were able to make a difference, but then the second wave of foreclosures came in and sort of knocked us back down to reality."

Habitat steps in

In Windy Ridge, Wigena Tirado and her neighbors were at last getting some allies.

Early in 2009, city officials asked the local chapter of Habitat for Humanity to take a role in the battered subdivision. Habitat, drawing primarily on federal money, bought 10 houses and so far has matched families with seven. But, just as Self-Help found in Peachtree, relying on grants with restrictions left it unable to keep pace with investors.

To prevent such scenarios, the federal government reached an agreement with mortgage lenders last September to give neighborhood stabilization grantees a first look at foreclosures before investors can buy them.

"In retrospect, maybe we should've borrowed some money to make it happen quicker," says Bert Green, Habitat's executive director.

Meanwhile, the city cracked down on landlords who were not caring for houses. City crews shored up some backyards, trying to combat erosion. Tirado's Crime Watch, feeding information to police, paid dividends. Break-ins dropped from 32 in 2008 to 6 in 2009 after the arrest of three men, one from the neighborhood.

The subdivision drew the attention of Janni Sorensen, a University of North Carolina at Charlotte professor who had spent years organizing residents in poor, but much older, neighborhoods in East St. Louis, Ill.

Windy Ridge is a "neighborhood built to fail," says Sorensen, pointing to factors ranging from its site between railroad tracks and lack of communal space to the concentration of absentee landlords and poor renters.

With a grant from the city, she hired a graduate student, Liz Shockey, to organize residents and assigned other students to do fieldwork in the subdivision.

Shockey worked to build the homeowners' association and with Alfaro as president, Windy Ridge replaced its management company. She and Tirado organized movie nights for neighborhood children, and UNCC recently brought in 140 volunteers to pick up trash.

The neighborhood still has eyesores like the house on Morning Breeze with plywood masking its windows. But the number of vacant homes has declined, to 22 in the most recent survey by UNCC students. Sorensen is intent on finding money to buy one of the empty houses and turn the site into a playground.

Still, the neighborhood's diehards run up against what Shockey calls "Windy Ridge burnout." The Alfaros have their house on the market. Last year, the Youmanses found a house they could buy, but in another neighborhood. Then, in September, Tirado moved out, fearing her landlord was headed for foreclosure.

Months before, city officials named Windy Ridge the city's "most engaged" neighborhood. But tax notices this spring confronted owners with figures showing their homes are valued at little more than half their original prices. Break-ins quadrupled to 27 last year.

"I'm not going to lie to you," Alfaro says. "Sometimes I know I made a mistake."

But then he points out the new shrubs at three nearby homes bought by Habitat. Two doors up, Andre Knight, a cook at a sports bar, recounts how he visited every afternoon to water the fresh sod while Habitat's crews brought the house back to life. He picked out the teal paint for the master bedroom and chose the carpeting.

"The lord says you ask for what you want, to picture it in your mind and you design your own ideas," Knight says. "That's why I knew this house was meant for me."

Future of the American Dream

Does the American Dream still have a prayer in Windy Ridge?

For the subdivision to succeed will take more than one homeowner or one house. Nobody understands that better than Tirado. She still calls Palm Breeze "my street" and shouts greetings to the neighbors. A few weeks ago, she signed on as the subdivision's first-ever property inspector.

In her new apartment, Tirado leaves the shades open and the light floods in. There's a swimming pool and a racquetball court. But the battle for Windy Ridge keeps drawing her back.

"Over here it's nice," she says, "but it's not a family."

Comment:

Comrades, there are two simple words for what happened in this neighbourhood: Greed and irresponsibility. The combination of greedy banksters and investors, and irresponsibility of homeowners.

I don't need to remind everyone of the greed of heartless banksters, nor that of investors who prey on the misfortunes of the working class like financial vultures. All they care about is profit, and making money WITHOUT having to work. We all know the evils of capitalism.

But we're partially to blame as well. Everyone SHOULD have the opportunity to own their own home, but in this corrupt, rotten, profit-driven society, it isn't a right, it's privilege you must be able to afford. If you can afford to make the payments now, but not in five years when the interest rates readjust much higher, then you can't afford that house. COUNTING on getting a raise, promotion, or a better job before that happens is gambling, and it is plain irresponsibility.

I have a business associate who has a gambling problem. He's the type of guy who will bet on ANYTHING. Now this may shock you, but sometimes he bets more than he has. Now when he wins, that's OK. But when he loses - well, you get my meaning. And he loses more than he wins. He's irresponsible, just like many home buyers. Buying a home now, counting on doing better financially in a few years is a gamble that you'll probably lose.

Comrades, one of the most important parts of National Socialism is responsibility. Never bite off more than you can chew, and never gamble your family's future. The cards are stacked against the White Working class. The non-White and immigrant working class have government programs to help them out that are not available to us. As National Socialists, it is up to us to set certain standards of responsibility and good sense. Part of that means living within your means. We all want a better life, but until we can affect major change in the current system, certain things will always be out of our reach. Living within your means, means accepting this. Our day will come, but until it does, we must act like responsible citizens at all times.

Medicare Fraud Epidemic


By MERRILL GOOZNER, The Fiscal Times
March 10, 2011

Medicare could wrench as much as $70 billion a year in savings by cracking down on fraud, experts told Congress this week. But the key is preventing scam artists and fake firms from doing business with the senior citizen health care program in the first place — not chasing them down after the fact.

At a series of congressional hearings, officials from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services insisted that they are beginning to scrutinize new providers coming into the program, rather than waiting to chase down fraud until after it’s paid the bills. “We are going to keep out the bad guys without making things worse for honest providers, and cut off payments for things that should not be paid,” Peter Budetti, director of program integrity at CMS, told a Senate Homeland Security subcommittee hearing on Wednesday. “We want to move from the pay and chase mode to preventing fraud.”

Budetti cautioned, though, that most of the funding for a new electronic screening software that could help identify fraudulent providers was contained in the 2010 health care reform law, which most Republicans on the Hill are seeking to repeal.
The growth of Medicare fraud could undermine the major source of funding for the new health care reform law.

Republicans responded that the limited measures in the reform bill don’t go far enough. The Congressional Budget Office estimated the latest government fraud prevention effort would eliminate just $5.8 billion in improper payments over the next decade, or less than 1 percent of expected fraud, Rep. Charles Boustany, R-La., said last week at a hearing of the House Ways and Means subcommittee on government oversight. The legislation “left a lot of suggestions by Congress and other government agencies on the cutting room floor,” he said.

The Obama administration has clearly stepped up the government effort to combat Medicare fraud that began under the Bush administration. Its fear: If left unchecked, the growth of Medicare fraud could undermine the major source of funding for the new health care reform law. The administration hopes to raise about a half-trillion dollars over the next decade through greater efficiencies in Medicare to help fund coverage for the uninsured.

To combat fraud, it has sought more money for the special interagency task force that investigates providers who abuse the system. For instance, last month Attorney General Eric Holder announced the arrest of 111 company executives, doctors and other health care providers in nine cities in what government officials called the largest ever federal crackdown on health care fraud. The charges ranged from submitting claims for medically unnecessary treatments to receiving kickbacks for referrals to billing for toenail removals that were never done.

New Approach to Root Out the Problem

Last year, the federal task force arrested 931 people and won 726 convictions in illegal billing schemes worth more than $2.3 billion, a 23 percent increase over the previous year, officials said. In 2010 it also recovered $4 billion through non-criminal penalties levied on Medicare and Medicaid providers who made improper claims to federal and state agencies.

But that approach — going after fraud and abuse after it occurs — will never root out the problem, experts testified. “If we had a better prepayment detection system that was coupled with a post-payment ‘pay and chase’ approach when necessary, you could significantly cut back the fraud and abuse problems,” said Craig H. Smith, a partner at Hogan Lovells U.S. in Tallahassee, Fla. He previously headed the Florida Agency for Health Care Administration, which ran the Medicaid program in a state often considered “ground zero” for health care fraud.

Providers selling Medicare durable medical equipment like motorized wheelchairs and fraudulent billing by home health agencies are major abusers of the system, especially in areas with huge senior populations like south Florida, southern California and the New York-New Jersey metroplex. Foreign criminal syndicates, often based in Russian, Eastern European and Latin American immigrant communities, are sometimes involved in the schemes.

Smith testified that Florida’s Medicaid program compiled a solid record in eliminating fraudulent providers from that program, even as the scam artists flourished in the Medicare program. “We were very strict about who we let into the program,” he said in an interview with The Fiscal Times. “They sometimes filed a court challenge or an administrative challenge, but that has pretty much been unsuccessful.”

The story was completely different in Medicare, he said, where as long as you have the requisite qualifications, Medicare rubber-stamps applications to become a certified provider. “Unless someone has a clear black mark against them, a health care fraud conviction, you’re largely enrolled,” Smith said. “If they try to kick you out of the program, you have administrative appeal rights.”

A recent HHS inspector general’s report identified 400 durable medical equipment suppliers without storefronts. When Medicare sought to expel them from the program, most filed successful appeals. A number were later swept up in the task force’s fraud investigation, Smith said.

Fraud isn’t limited to public programs. Louis Saccoccio, executive director of the National Health Care Anti-Fraud Association, which is backed by the insurance industry, estimated insurance companies’ fraud investigation units earn a six-to-one return for every dollar spent on rooting out fraudulent billings. But they have an easier challenge since they are usually dealing with a limited set of providers in a single state or region, whereas Medicare is dealing with $500 billion a year paid out to tens of thousands of providers across the country.

Technology Offers New Hope

Software developers are competing to sell CMS technology that can identify patterns of fraud, similar to the software now in use by credit card companies that can identify when a card’s pattern of use differs markedly from past experience. There appears to be bi-partisan support for that approach.

“The credit card industry handles $2 trillion a year in transactions, almost as much as the health care industry,” said Sen. Scott Brown, R-Mass., at Wednesday’s Homeland Security hearing. “Yet credit card fraud is a fraction of one percent. I’m shocked that the government can’t do it better.”

Other experts like Sara Rosenbaum, chair of the health policy department at George Washington University and a former HHS official, encouraged Congress to also look into insurance industry fraud, even though it only accounts for about 10 percent of the increased costs attributed to health care fraud.

She cited false marketing by Medicare Advantage plans and the false underreporting of “usual and customary fees” paid by insurers to out-of-network physicians. This leads to higher out-of-pocket payments for individuals in those plans.

In January 2009, then New York attorney general Andrew Cuomo reached a $50 million out-of-court settlement with UnitedHealth Group after receiving hundreds of complaints that the company used its own Ingenix subsidiary instead of independent research to determine actual out-of-network fees.

Comment:

Comrades, I'm sure you all know that social-service fraud is an institution these days. There's so much fraud going around, ZOG couldn't possibly keep up with it all. From illegal aliens, people faking disabilities, it's rampant in this country. This is one of the reasons the system is near to collapse.

This article did say one thing I believe in. We must find a better way to prevent fraud, rather than finding these cheats AFTER the damage has been done. Craig Smith is correct when he said we need a better fraud detection system. The credit card industry handles $2 trillion a year. That's more than the national debt! That's nothing less than an obscene amount of profit for the banking vulture. But that's another story.

Handled properly, and without generating massive profits for both the healthcare and insurance industries, this country can have affordable healthcare for literally pennies a day. It can also be a sort of pay-as-you-go system. If you're single with no children, you pay less, because you're the only one in your household using it. Fair is fair. I shouldn't have to pay a cent for my neighbour's children. It's been done before. I don't need to mention where, do I?

Unfortunately, it will never happen in our corrupt system. The credit card companies are not being defrauded, just ZOG, who passes on the expense to us. Indeed, the credit card companies are probably paying government officials NOT to look too hard at fraud as it will cost them quite a bit of their disgusting profit.

Until we can establish a National Socialist state, this kind of corruption will NEVER cease. There's too much money involved. From the insurance companies cheating us of our hard earned money, to doctors who charge hundreds of dollars an hour for their services. I mean doctors are highly trained professionals, but no one should be making hundreds of dollars per hour, period.

With the state of things now, younger people had better start worrying.

Comrades, it's up to us - to all of us to make our dream a reality. If we don't do it ourselves, no one else will. SO LET'S GET ON WITH IT!

Birth Rate Among Native-Borns Declining


By BLAIRE BRIODY, The Fiscal Times
February 7, 2011

This is the second piece in a series that will examine the impact of a potential baby dearth in America. The recession is pushing the birth rate down, women are waiting longer to have children and the cost of raising a child is skyrocketing. Fewer babies means fewer young people to support an aging population , threatening already-strained social programs. Has America’s baby bubble burst?

Meet Mrs. Hoffmann’s dream family: three children, each two years apart, two girls and a boy. She’d work from home in their three bedroom home in a quaint New Jersey suburb, her husband commuting to New York City. She’d have it all — the house, the husband, the fulfilling career, and a bustling household of children playing tag in the manicured front yard. It’s the iconic vision of the American Dream. But last year, Hoffmann’s dream evaporated. After much deliberation, the Hoffmanns decided they couldn’t afford a third child. They could barely afford the two they already had.

Whether it’s hospital costs, diapers, day care, or the ever increasing cost of a college education, children are expensive, and getting more so. Due to the recession, couples are starting to consider the financial realities having a family — for many, that means downsizing or skipping out on baby-making altogether.

Three Strikes Against Children

The birth rate has dropped over 8 percent since 2007. Women are having an average of 2.01 children over their lifetime, below the population replacement rate of 2.10 (a number that was holding steady before the recession). If the downtrend continues, it could create a small workforce supporting a large aging population with less revenue for the expensive tax-funded social programs seniors depend on.

In addition to the rising costs of children, women are marrying later and waiting longer to have children, lowering their chances of conceiving, and facing staggering fertility treatment costs when they get there. With all these forces compounding, it’s possible the birth rate will continue to fall even after the economy recovers — a shift that has undermined the social systems and economies in many developed countries, including Japan and Italy. Right now, the birth rate in the U.S. appears to be teetering on the edge of a cliff, ready to nosedive at any moment.

How Much Is That Baby in the Window?

In 2009, the Department of Agriculture estimated the total before-college cost of raising a child was $286,050 — about $11,700 per year today, and $21,600 a year by the time they’re 18. With college, the cost nearly doubles, not to mention the costs many parents face during a recession, when their college grad shows up at their doorstep expecting to move back in. Housing and child-care were two of the biggest expenses, 31 percent and 17 percent respectively, and 50 percent higher for those who live in urban areas. The U.S. is becoming more urbanized every year — 90 percent of the population is expected to live in cities or suburbs by 2050. For a newborn in New York City, the average family spends up to $16,250 per year on child-care alone.

Pamela Paul, author of Parenting, Inc., writes, “From the moment the self-pregnancy test confirms the happy news, the sales pitches begin: a shower of catalogs hawking the very best in organic onesies; lavender-scented diaper creams and designer rubber duckies; a never-ending cascade of DVDs and baby classes that promise to make your child smarter, socially adept and bilingual before age three … Time-strapped mothers and fathers are the perfect mark for the mammoth ‘parenting’ industry.”

Linda Milkes, 41, from Basking Ridge, N.J., and her husband originally wanted children, but couldn’t imagine adding a $286,000 bill to their expenses. They ultimately decided to remain childless. “We have a pretty decent lifestyle, we enjoy going out and doing things and traveling when we can,” she says. “I remember hearing from years back that it costs about $100,000 to raise a kid, not counting college. Once I heard that figured updated to $250,000, I was like, ‘Oh man, there’s no way we could afford this.’”

Many Americans want more children than they actually conceive and deliver. Surveys show that 26 percent of Americans say three children is ideal, 46 percent say two — only 3 percent say one child and 3 percent say zero. Yet birth data tells a different story. A whopping 18 percent of women now have no children, up 80 percent since 1996, and some 20 percent have one child. The average is still two, close to replacement rate, but as Phillip Longman, author of The Empty Cradle: How Falling Birthrates Threaten World Prosperity And What to Do About It says, “If the average woman has to have 2.1 kids [to replace the population] and 18 percent of women are having no kids over their lifetime, then women who do have kids have to have a whole lot more than two.”

Wrinkle Cream and Fertility Pills

Back in the 1970s, the average age of a woman’s first birth in the U.S. was 21. Today, it’s 25 — and higher for states like Connecticut, Massachusetts and New Jersey, where it’s 27. Although the birth rate declined in 2009, it actually rose for women ages 40 to 44, the only age group to do so. Celebrity moms over 40, like Jane Seymour and Madonna, make it appear effortless to get pregnant at this age, but when women wait until they’re in their 30s and 40s to have children, the chances of conceiving drops dramatically and they’re more likely to use fertility treatments. In vitro fertilization in the U.S. will set you back some $15,000 with each attempt — more than any other developed country. In addition, many babies born through IVF and other methods are premature, increasing the initial health care costs for the child.

“We have a generation of people who are taking longer to get established,” says Judith Daniluk, a psychologist at the University of British Columbia who specializes in childbirth trends. “It used to be, ‘Get out of high school, get your university degree, hook up with a partner, get a home, have kids.’ We’ve probably pushed that by about eight to 10 years. By the time a couple gets the things they need in place to parent, they’re into their late 30s.”

A Shifting Lifestyle

With more women working, childbearing has become a difficult choice, especially at a time when two incomes are essential. “As more and more couples, including those who have economic resources, both end up pursuing careers, that luxury of being able to have one parent stay home and raise the kids is just not a luxury that many people can afford anymore,” says Daniluk. Yet, it doesn’t make financial sense for both parents to work if the majority of one partner’s paycheck goes to childcare. Eat, Pray, Love author Elizabeth Gilibert, who is childless by choice, said, “I didn't think I had the support to both have [kids] and continue on this path that was really important to me. I wasn't married to a man who wanted to stay home and raise kids. So ...”

With the rise of birth control, some wonder if young women are becoming more disconnected with fertility and child-rearing. Gone are the home economics and family planning classes (and few women were sad to see them go). Women want control and freedom in their lives — something children can impede on. “Having kids is such a huge financial responsibility, and once you’re in it, you’re stuck, and you have to do whatever you’ve got to do — maybe work extra hours or take a second job, just to provide for your kid. It just takes away freedom,” says Milkes.

With all of these forces intersecting, the dip in the birth rate since 2007 starts to look like the beginning of a new era – one with smaller families and smaller workforces. “It’s important for people to remember how anomalous the baby boom was,” says Longman. “The long-term trend [for the birth rate] has been down down down.”

Correction, Feb. 15, 2011: This piece originally stated that Judith Daniluk is a psychologist at the University of Calgary in British Columbia. She is a psychologist at the University of British Columbia.

Comment:

This is our fault for allowing it to happen. Girls are now pushed from childhood into having a career, rather than a family. Indeed, many women actually look down on the concept of having a family, and doing housework. Current societal attitudes teach them that it's beneath their dignity, so to speak. Added to the fact that so many people believe that two incomes are necessary. They're right, if your goal in life is to have as many useless gadgets made in China cluttering up your house, like HD TV's, Blue Rays, fancy computers, Blackberrys, I Pods, expensive SUV's, and vacations to Acapulco and Hawaii.

This does not apply to the so-called "working poor". If you have a low paying job, you probably do need two incomes.

Comrades, people need to put things into perspective. The most important thing is the family, not plastic crap from China. This is one of the reasons immigrants from Third World Countries are out breeding us. They place more value on the family than most Americans. In the very near future, not only will Mestizos outnumber Whites, but immigrants, and the children of immigrants will outnumber those of us who have been here for generations.

If we don't return to the old values, it will soon be all over for the White race.

240 Suspected Illegal Aliens Fired in Minnesota for Not Providing Valid Work Papers

Wednesday, March 16, 2011, 11:26 AM EDT

A janitorial firm in Minnesota is firing more than half of its workforce after workers were unable to provide valid paperwork proving that they are authorized to work in the United States. According to a spokesman for the SEIU, the employees at Harvard Maintenance will be let go by the end of the month.

The Department of Homeland Security conducted an audit of the company's employee files last year, and notified the company that it suspected that many of its employees were working illegally. In December, the company told its employees they had 90 days to provide valid paperwork.

Two years ago, another janitorial company in Minnesota fired 1,200 workers after a similar audit.

Comment:

OK, so they got fired. That does open up that many jobs for citizens, however it says NOTHING about any of them being arrested and deported. They'll all probably end up getting welfare from the government, and may be better off than BEFORE they were fired.

Comrades, stunts like this are all for show. ZOG just wants us to THINK they're doing something about this problem. A showy bust here and there means nothing. This problem has to be dealt with once and for all. We must bring our troops home from overseas, and use them to help deport these illegals, and to KEEP them out permanently.

Announcements And Reminders...

Here we go again!

Firstly, I've just made another ANP video. You can find it on my channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/ANPGhost?feature=mhum It's set to the song "I'm Proud To Be An American". I thought it was very appropriate. As National Socialists, we love our country. It's the GOVERNMENT we don't trust!

The month will be over in a week. Have you sent in your pledge and report yet? If you're broke, you need to let us know so you're not dropped from our lists. If you haven't sent in your report yet, well, there is no excuse for that.

Our California conference will still be held next month. We're all looking forward to it most eagerly.

The Detroit conference will be held in May.

The Laurens conference will be held in July.

I will not release details of the conferences until I'm authorised to do so.

Finally, this is more of a warning, that an announcement. Earlier this month, my brother got a ticket for running a stop light. It was 5:30 AM and the intersection was deserted - except for a cop sitting there with his lights out hoping to nail someone. Well he did. My brother made a complete stop, made sure there was no moving traffic, then proceeded. Then he proceeded to get a ticket. This week, he received his "courtesy notice" in the mail. The city of Fullerton, Ca. in Orange County, expects him to pay a fine of $536! If he wants to keep this off of his record, he'll have to pay an additional fee to a traffic school. An online traffic school costs $50. At least you can do it from home instead of killing a perfectly good Saturday in some stupid classroom.
The site I mentioned a couple of weeks ago at http://www.helpigotaticket.com/ can really help. They can help you find ways to beat your ticket on a technicality. It can be a nuisance going through all that information, but on the other hand, do you want to pay ZOG a $500 plus fine?

This just goes to show you how desperate California is getting. They're doing whatever they can to wring as much money from the people as they can. If you get a ticket, there may be a way to get out of it - if you're willing to put out a little effort. Or are you so rich that you can afford to shell out hundreds of dollars for a ticket that would have cost just $50 twenty years ago. Don't pay their ransom! Put out a little effort and fight back against ZOG's tyranny and greed.

A new report by the Center for Immigration Studies finds that 200,000 children were born to women who were lawfully admitted to the United States on a temporary basis. These 200,000 children receive automatic citizenship to the United States despite the mother's allegiance to another nation. The Birthright Citizenship Act of 2011 (H.R.140) would end the practice of birthright citizenship.

In addition to CIS' finding on births to foreign visitors, the report also found that 300,000 children are born to children of illegal alien parents each year.

Of the 200,000 children born to visitors, CIS found that in 20% of the cases (39,000), the mother came to the United States for the sole purpose of giving birth - a practice known as birth tourism. Another 20,000 births are estimated to young foreign women who reside in the United States for temporary stays of multiple years such as students and guest workers.

The Center for Immigration Studies pointed out in their study that any discussion of births to foreign visitors must consider national security implications.

The United States is one of two developed nations (Canada) to offer automatic citizenship to all children born in the country.

Comment:

Incredible, isn't it comrades. Foreigners come here as "tourists", just so they can have a child here and it will be a citizen automatically. They also feel this gives them the right to stay because their children are citizens and have a right to be here, and it wouldn't be right to separate them.

Well I say screw that! Birthright citizenship must end for illegals and tourists both. And until that happens, OK, the kids are citizens and can stay, but ship the parents back where they came from. If they choose to take the kids with them, then they forfeit their citizenship.

Now For The "Other" Rally

Counter-rally promotes peace
More than 400 gather at Memorial Park
Mediha Fejzagic DiMartino, Staff Writer
Posted: 03/19/2011 05:34:08 PM PDT

CLAREMONT - Saturday's peacemakers came in all shapes and sizes - college students, sports fans, farmers, moms. Amidst the scent of a burning sage, they formed a circle, standing shoulder to shoulder against racism.

"We have come together in a spirit of love for each other," said Native American spiritual leader Al Villanueva during the Claremont for Peace rally held the Memorial Park. "Human spirit has no color, no gender, no national origin, no religious denomination and no borders."

More than 400 people attended the gathering held just blocks away from a protest staged by The National Socialist Movement, the neo-Nazis.

"I came because our nice little town is being violated by this hatred," said Claremont-native

Jeff Jones.

After the Native American ceremony, Rev. Rob Patton, a senior pastor at Claremont United Church of Christ which sponsored the event, rallied the crowd.

"I say Claremont, you say peace," Patton shouted, followed by cheers from the audience. "I say love, you say all. I say one, you say faith.

"Blessed are the peacemakers. We are all children of God. We are here for peace, oneness, community, for connection."

Paul Buch, a cantor from Temple Beth Israel also spoke, emphasizing the importance of getting to know one another.

"The greatest weapon we have against hatred and intolerance is finding opportunities to get to know and share our lives with broad range of citizens," Buch said. "What breeds ignorance and hatred is fear. The only way to conquer fear is love and understanding. In the modern digital age, it's hard to do it online, without looking into each other's eyes."

Elissa Simkins of Alice Springs, Australia, has arranged her trip back to the United States to make sure she attends the rally.

"We don't want this in Claremont or in the world," Simkins said.

Teresia Santee of Pomona was on her way to the anti-war protest held in Los Angeles, but decided to come to Claremont and "act locally" instead.

"This is the old one form the 1960s," Santee said while tying a paper inscribed with "Peace is patriotic" on the park fence. "I heard Nazi were coming and I just had to stand against that. Seeing all the young people, that was important."

Anthony Ortega, a Los Angeles-based Chicano civil rights historian said he did not want to miss the event because "it's important to promote peace and oppose right-wing elements such as neo-Nazi or Minutemen."

"We are going back to the civil rights era all over again," Ortega said.

Laura Williams of Temecula, whose daughter attends the Webb Schools, echoed Ortega's words.

"We don't understand each other as humans, we see our differences more than similarities," Williams said.

Ruth Lynch of Claremont said she also wanted to add her voice against the racism, but rally's Native-American ceremony "seemed to focus just on people of color."

"The prayer was inspirational, but it made me feel like I don't belong here," Lynch said. "There were no American flags, no American counter of Nazis. They were highlighting things that have gone bad in the past with the white people. It became a racial thing."

Comment:

Comrades, what Ms. Lynch just said is typical of these kinds of people. They go out of their way to exclude Whites, and always make us the bad guys. Whatever their problems, it's always our fault. A Black doesn't get a job, it's our fault. A Latino gets deported, it's our fault. Taxes go up, it's our fault. There's hate in the world, it's our fault. Gee, we must be a terrible group of people.

In reality, THEY are the ones who make it about race, not us. THEY are the hateful ones, not us.

We mustn't let them dump the blame for the world's problems on us. The state of things today is EVERYONE"S fault, not just ours.

The Circus Is In Town!

Heated words, no more
Dueling events feature sharb jabs, but no violence

Wes Woods II, Staff Writer
Posted: 03/19/2011 10:37:46 PM PDT

CLAREMONT - Armed for a war of words with megaphones and sharp tongues, about 30 people from the National Socialist Movement and 400 to 500 anti-Nazi protesters taunted each other Saturday during two rallies drawing attention to America's policy on immigration.

"We have more white people than you," came a barb from someone with the anti neo-Nazi group, which stood at the southeast corner of Foothill and Indian Hill boulevards. "How does it feel?"

Jeff Hall, Southwest States regional director of the neo-Nazi group fired back, "It feels good not to be scared. It's all about quality, not quantity."

The group said they came to protest illegal immigration and to show there are other viewpoints than just Claremont College Mohammed Martinez, 63, of East Los Angeles, yells at Josh Davenport of the National Socialist Movement, a neo-Nazi group, as the group rallied on Saturday on the corner of Foothill and Indian Hill boulevards in Claremont. (Thomas R. Cordova/Staff Photographer) students who were for "open borders."

Being outnumbered didn't faze the Nazi group, many of whom had bald heads, black or fatigue-style clothing and U.S. flags with swastikas.

They claimed victory Saturday.

"You said you were going to stop us, but you didn't. Thank you for being tools and showing up here today," Hall said on his megaphone.

Hall would use his megaphone to get his group to chant or incite the hundreds across the street while police officers and yellow police tape blocked people from reaching them.

The neo-Nazi chants included "White power," "Whose streets? Our streets," "Heil Hitler" and "If it's brown, flush it down."

A woman in the Nazi group took off an overshirt to reveal a black shirt that read "because the beauty of the white Aryan woman must not perish from the earth ..."

Responses from the other side included chants like "Nazis go home" or insults such as "No matter how hard you try you will not be Edward Norton," which was a reference to the Norton movie "American History X."

Another neo-Nazi, who only gave his first name of Ken, said he was a 44-year-old mechanic who lives in Claremont.

He claimed there were Claremont College students and Claremont police who were part of the neo-Nazi group but declined to say more when asked for specifics.

Neo-Nazi member Josh Davenport, 27, of Las Vegas, and Hall, of Riverside, said they considered the event a success because of potential new membership.

"We saw such a huge spike on a national level and new interest we have had a hard time keeping up with it," Hall said. [He's probably right. - Dan.]

The Nazi protest lasted from noon until about 1:30 p.m.

There were 16 police agencies and more than 110 officers to provide security for the rally, which ended with no arrests or property damage, Claremont police Lt. Mike Ciszek said.

"It went extremely well, and we definitely appreciated mutual aid that came out," Ciszek said. "We would have been overwhelmed in a second if things would have gone bad. It's great to see law enforcement come together for a purpose."

The alternative peace rally, which started at 10 a.m., was held three blocks away at Memorial Park. A large group from the peace rally then walked over to protest the neo-Nazi's presence on Foothill Boulevard.

When the approximately 30 neo-Nazis walked to their location, a small number of protesters confronted them, yelling into a megaphone "garbage" over and over.

Raymond Herrera, founder and president of the Claremont-based anti-illegal immigration group We the People, California's Crusader, was at the event and again said he opposed the neo-Nazi rally.

Herrera said his organization does not join racist groups like neo-Nazi, La Raza or the Ku Klux Klan.

As he spoke, some of the neo-Nazi protesters turned to him and questioned why he hated illegal immigrants, but he did not answer them.

Chris Baca, 35, of Riverside, was part of the anti neo-Nazi rally and briefly confronted them.

"This is racism," he said. "They're claiming they're white when they're not white themselves. I think they're sad. White people were the first illegal immigrants in the country."

Mohammed Martinez, 63, of East Los Angeles, also was able to verbally confront the neo-Nazis and said he remembered confronting the Nazis 30 years ago "back in El Monte." [Frank Collins' Group - Dan.]

Art Gamboa, 50, of Maywood, said he opposed the neo-Nazis.

"I don't think nothing is going to stop these guys," he said.

Hall added he thought Claremont police did a great job in organizing the event and "took it seriously."

There are no immediate plans of coming back to Claremont for another rally, Hall said.

Claremont City Manager Jeff Parker said he was relieved the event was peaceful.

"The First Amendment freedom of speech worked. I'm happy it all concluded with no violence of any kind," Parker said.

Comment:

What a waste of time! What did they accomplish? I'll admit that the showing of about 30 was impressive, but the opposition was still about 12 to 0ne, in favour of the opposition! Not surprising.

Claremont is an extremely liberal area. I lived there for four years in the late 70's. I even graduated from Claremont High School. It's home to the Claremont Colleges, five Ivy League Schools including Harvey Mudd College, and Scripps College. Indeed, when I lived there, many of the professors were aging Hippies still with long hair, tie-dyed shirts, and love beads. The residents would definitely NOT be very receptive.

Take a note of the first photo. What is the point of all those racist tattoos? For one thing, what does that do for anyone? Also, who would give anyone an honest job with his face, as well as his body covered with tattoos, racialist or other kinds, except maybe in a circus sideshow?

Mr. Hall was wrong when he called the counter-protesters "tools". It was he and the NSM that were the tools. They came out there with the express purpose of rabble-rousing and gaining publicity, and they did succeed. They succeeded in giving the Jewsmedia another chance at trashing the White Nationalist Movement. Congratulations guys, you made ALL of us look bad. You better believe that in the next elections, if any of us run in that area, this will all be stirred up again by the press.

In closing, I'd actually like to thank Raymond Herrerra, who is obviously Latino, for speaking the truth regarding La Raza. He called it a racist organisation, which it is.

Tomorrow: The "other" rally in Memorial Park.

La Raza Well Funded.....with our tax dollars!

The United States government is funding the National Council of La Raza with our tax dollars. La Raza, which literally means in Spanish “The Race,” is a radical organization that advocates open borders and amnesty for illegal aliens. I pulled and analyzed the tax return Form 990, the form filed by 501© 3 organizations to the IRS, and here is what was reported:

Government Grants (contributions) to the National Council of La Raza

2008 Tax Returns, (October 1 2008 to September 30, 2009) $5,136,535

2007 Tax Returns $3,458,351

2006 Tax Returns $3,353,319

What do people get paid at La Raza?

According to the 2008 tax returns seventeen people listed as officers, directors, trustees, key employees and highest compensated employees of the National Council of La Raza have an income ranging from $119,675 to $378,446, the latter of which goes to Janet Murguia, president and CEO.

To put that income figure in perspective a rank and file United States Senator makes $174,000. A United States Marine Sergeant with five years of service earns a base salary of $29,376, including the raise received for 2011.

Lobbying:

Part II, Section 1b indicates lobbying expenditures to influence a legislative body amounted to $550,787.

Section 1g indicates lobbying expenditures to “Grassroots nontaxable amount” of $250,000.

Here is the quick analysis: The US government pays La Raza to lobby the US government for money.

Comment:

The United States of America is facing a multitude of critical issues. Two of those issues are wasteful government spending and illegal immigration. Cutting funding for the National Council of La Raza would begin to help in both of those issues.

Also, the Southern Poverty Law Centre, America's self-proclaimed hate group watchdog considers La Raza to be the largest, most influential hate group in the country.

What really gets me is their salaries. These Mestizo turds are making a small fortune, while I, who am basically doing a similar job get paid nothing. Well, at least it keeps me in a low tax bracket!

Comrades, it doesn't surpise me one bit that ZOG is funding an anti-white hate group. Now if I found out they were giving money to the ANP, THAT would surprise me!

Another Try At Amnesty

Could Utah's new amnesty/guest worker law be the model for the next big amnesty push as early as late spring? That's what some media outlets are suggesting this week.

On Tuesday, Utah Governor Gary Herbert signed HB116 into law - a bill that offers amnesty and a guest worker visa to "qualifying" illegal aliens who establish residency in the state by May 10. The bill received the endorsement of the state's Chamber of Commerce and the Church of Latter Day Saints.

While the traditional amnesty with a pathway to citizenship is dead at the federal level, some -- including National Public Radio -- say the Obama Administration is looking to the Utah Compact as a new approach. The 2012 presidential election gets closer every day, and Pres. Obama has failed the pro-amnesty groups on his promise of immigration reform, so the Utah Compact offers him a chance to deliver amnesty with a lot of support from pro-corporation Republicans.

But anyway you look at it, it's still an amnesty that will add competition to the labor force for America's unemployed.

On the other hand, if we continue to make it difficult for illegals here in California, Arizona, and other states, perhaps more of them will migrate to Utah. I'd prefer to see them all deported to their native lands, but at least there may be fewer of them here - as long as Obama doesn't cave in and make it a national thing. All we can do is wait and see what happens, and in the mean time, continue to get our message to the people that these illegals MUST BE DEPORTED NOW!

May whites have a racial identity

Jared Taylor, Vdare.com, Nov. 16, 2010

May whites have a racial identity? Are they allowed to be glad they are white or to think about what is good for them as a group?

Shelby Steele, a black scholar at the Hoover Institution at Stanford University doesn’t say “no”; he says “hell no”.

“[B]eyond an identity that apologizes for white supremacy, absolutely no white identity is permissible. In fact, if there is a white racial identity today it would have to be white guilt—a shared, even unifying, lack of racial moral authority.”

[White Guilt: How Black and Whites Together Destroyed the Promise of the Civil Right Era, by Shelby Steele]

Dr. Steele continues: “Black children today are hammered with the idea of racial identity and pride, yet racial pride in whites constitutes a grave evil. Say ‘I’m white and I’m proud’ and you are a Nazi.”

Dr. Steele means all whites everywhere: “Today’s whites, the world over, cannot openly have a racial identity.” [Yo, Howard! Why did Dean have to embrace the Confederate flag? OpinionJournal.com, November 13, 2003]

Pretty clear, isn’t it? If any whites anywhere permit themselves the vagrant thought that it might be nice to remain a majority in North America or Europe, or if it dawns on them that to “celebrate diversity” is to celebrate their dispossession, they are “evil”.

Well, I guess I’m “evil” by Dr. Steele’s standards. And, dear reader, you probably are, too.

Nowadays, all a white person needs to do is attend a Tea Party, and the NAACP will call him “racist”. Even voting Republican can be a form of moral leprosy. “Anti-racist” entrepreneur Tim Wise, [Email him] who hectors whites about their sins at $6,000 a day, recently unbosomed his joy at the thought of the deaths of millions of us. He wrote that any white who was happy about the 2010 election results or who voted Republican was a hijo de Puta [son of a whore] and should go to hell.

But first they should die:

“We just have to be patient. And wait for your hearts to stop beating. And stop they will. And for some of you, real damned soon, truth be told. Do you hear it? The sound of your empire dying? Your nation, as you knew it, ending, permanently? Because I do, and the sound of its demise is beautiful.” [An Open Letter to the White Right, On the Occasion of Your Recent, Successful Temper Tantrum, Tim Wise, Daily Kos, November 3, 2010]

Mr. Wise repented of his candor and removed that passage from his website. But it’s edifying to know where we stand.

The Southern Poverty Law Center is constantly on the sniff for “hate”, so I thought I would call Mr. Wise to its attention. My good friend at the center, Heidi Beirich, [Email her] is a world-class hate sniffer. She assured me that Mr. Wise’s calling me and millions of whites sons of whores, telling us to go to hell, and thrilling at the thought of our deaths does not qualify as “hate”. I’m greatly relieved.

I’m also perplexed, though, because Dr. Beirich thinks my publication American Renaissance peddles “hate”—and that VDARE.COM does, too.

In fact, anyone who wants whites and their culture to survive, and who thinks they are not interchangeable with any other people or cultures is apparently a hater. Anyone who likes being white or—heaven help us—hopes his grandchildren will be white is too awful for words.

Dr. Steele, Dr. Beirich, and Mr. Wise will no doubt be outraged to know that we “haters” get together from time to time to discuss such shocking questions. American Renaissance is holding its next conference over the weekend of Feb. 4- 6 in Charlotte, North Carolina, and I invite all VDARE.COM readers to attend. If you are a dissenter from racial orthodoxy you will have a marvelous time.

Full details are here. We will have some great speakers.

There will be a mystery guest from Europe, who represents the very best of nationalist political movements. He (or she) is a prominent figure in just the kind of party we must have in this country if we are not to go extinct, as Mr. Wise so ardently wishes. This speaker seldom comes to the United States, and the American Renaissance conference will be a rare and inspiring chance to hear about what works across the Atlantic.

Our speaker from South Africa, Dan Roodt, is an Afrikaner leader whose people face a far sharper crisis than our own. He will offer a riveting analysis of the psychology of capitulation, and how to avoid it.

Jonathan Bowden, little known in the United States, has a tremendous following in British nationalist circles. I do not believe I have ever heard so powerful and mesmerizing a speaker anywhere. He will share a British nationalist’s perspective on America.

Donald Thomas is one of the few people who really understand how the American refugee/asylum program works. Like so many things the government does, the deeper you probe the worse the rot. His report will shock you.

Hugh Kennedy, an expert on free speech law, will talk about where thinking of the Shelby Steele kind ultimately leads: censorship. After all, if whites with a sense of their group interests are a “grave evil”, it is only a matter of prudence to curtail their rights of speech and assembly. Mr. Kennedy will explain the ways the First Amendment could be neutered.

Other speakers include David Yeagley, who will offer “A Comanche View of White America”, and Prof. Raymond Wolters of the University of Delaware, who will describe the desperate folly to which the racial gap in school achievement has driven our “educators”.
As usual, there will be remarks by your servant and the incomparable Sam Dickson, and we will have yet another mystery guest, an American academic who, in his retirement, is finally free to speak his mind.

I would note that in this sweet land of liberty, there are so many people of the Steele-Wise-Beirich persuasion that we have to be coy about the exact location of the conference. We know that if we give the lovers of tolerance and diversity enough time to organize, they will put pressure on the venue to cancel their contract with us. Our venue is fully briefed and believes in freedom of speech. But just to be on the safe side, we are releasing the final location just a few days before the conference begins.

In the meantime please make your plans to drive or fly to Charlotte. Roundtrip tickets are cheaper than you think: If you book now, they are under $200 from New York and under $300 from Los Angeles or Dallas.

And when you come, be on the sniff for “hate”, will you, and let me know if you find any.

Comment:

Comrades, what this racist, hate-filled Black scholar Shelby Steele is saying is that the current generation of Whites, owes some kind of a debt to the people of colour for the way the White Race has treated them in the past. Not being allowed a racial identity is our punishment.

Verdict: Guilty.

Sentence: Death.

I for one refuse to pay a debt I don't owe. I was born just before LBJ signed the Civil Rights Amendment. In the last days of legal segregation, I was a baby. What could I have done to help the Blacks? Nothing! I didn't even know what a Black man was, or that there were such people. I lived in an all White town. Was that my fault? No! I didn't choose that town, my folks did. I had no say in it.

I will not be held responsible for the sins of those who came before me. But that's the way of things these days. No one wants to take responsibility for their own actions. It's always someone else's fault. If a Black man doesn't get that job, it must be Whitey's fault. If an illegal immigrant gets sent back to his native land, it's not his fault, it's those racist Americans (mostly White Americans, of course).

Also, Steele seems to think that Whites are the only source of hate in the world. Eliminate the White race, you eliminate hate. How ludicrous! I seem to remember many instances of "racial cleansing" between African tribes. Oh wait, they must have learned that from us, so again, it's all Whitey's fault. How about India and Pakistan? Two groups of non-Whites who'd love nothing better that to nuke each other. Oh, I just remembered. Nuclear weapons were invented by Whites, so I guess that's all our fault as well.


People must take responsibility for their own actions. If you're a Black person and you didn't get that job, couldn't it be possible that you weren't qualified, or if you were, they found someone who was more qualified?

That's what differentiates National Socialists from other people. We take responsibility for our actions. If it isn't our fault, we fight back. But if it is our fault, we will act like White men and women and admit it, and do what we have to, to correct the situation. If it requires paying a penalty, then that's what we have to do. WE DON'T MAKE LAME EXCUSES LIKE THE OTHER RACES DO! We face our responsibilities, we don't push them off onto someone else.

Check Out The Ghosts Now Working At Chipotle -- CATO Says The New Workers Can't Really Exist

In yet another attempt to persuade Americans that illegal immigration is good for them, the libertarian CATO Institute is waging a campaign claiming that foreign workers (legal or illegal) don't harm American workers -- they just take jobs that Americans wouldn't do anyway.

I'll bet you a burrito made with integrity that I can prove CATO wrong at any number of Chipotle restaurants across the country.

CATO's Dan Griswold recently testified against immigration enforcement at the House Immigration Subcommittee. After Republican Members showed no receptivity to his arguments, he took his argument to the Daily Caller:

http://dailycaller.com/2011/03/09/immigration-doesnt-hurt-native-born-workers/print/

Griswold said the Republicans were wrong to claim that enforcing immigration laws to remove illegal aliens and open up jobs would put more Americans back to work.

That message may play well politically, but it does not reflect the reality of America’s dynamic labor market. There is simply no evidence that immigration drives up the U.S. unemployment rate or that it drives down wages for American workers.

-- Dan Griswold, CATO Institute

Like most others in the pro-illegal-immigration lobby, Griswold cites a bunch of academic studies that he says show that illegal aliens actually create more jobs for U.S. workers because they do jobs that otherwise would go empty and that those jobs make it possible for better jobs to be created to be filled by American workers.

I never cease to marvel at these studies that come up with complicated formulas to prove that what you can see with your very own eyes can't possibly be true. I think the word for these particular academics is "sophistry."

And I can't think of a better example of educated foolishness than this quote from Griswold:

The best approach to immigration as our economy recovers from recession would be to expand channels for legal entry.

Got that? The best way to put more Americans back to work is to bring in more foreign workers! As ridiculous as that sounds to us common Americans, that is the argument that most prevails in the editorial boards of the nation's newspapers, in the think tanks around Washington and among the academics who get quoted.

WHICH GETS ME TO CHIPOTLE

The feds have been auditing Chipotle restaurants across the country and finding that the Mexican food being served up there is being cooked, assembled and rung up by thousands of illegal aliens. As a result, thousands of illegal aliens have been fired or are ceasing to show up for work when they hear their restaurant is about to be audited.

So, according to Griswold (and most of the Democratic U.S. Representatives who sponsored him at the hearing), we are supposed to believe that all those illegal aliens working at Chipotle were not affecting American unemployment. The Griswold theory -- backed up by all those high-sounding studies -- is that these illegal aliens were just doing jobs American won't do, so nobody was hurt by them being here.

According to the Griswold "studies," what should Americans expect the next time they go to Chipotle after they've heard of an immigration audit there? Either that the illegal aliens have been replaced by another batch of illegal aliens or that there will be hardly anybody still working there to help them choose between pinto and black beans and whether to go with the tomato salsa or the corn salsa.

Hmmm, I wonder if Griswold's theory is right? I wish somebody could get a big government grant to do a study and give us an answer.

Oh, wait a minute, I guess those of us regular Americans without those fancy degrees could just walk down to Chipotle and check it out ourselves.

And what have hungry customers across Americans found at Chipotle after all the illegal aliens left? Why, the counters have been fully staffed -- with legal workers. Chipotle has apparently had no trouble hiring Americans to fill all those positions. It looks like Americans indeed will grill the chicken, pork and beef and wrap them with your choice of ingredients.

Most Americans have common sense enough to know that if Americans fill the jobs vacated by illegal aliens after an enforcement action, that means those illegal aliens were keeping Americans unemployed while they were holding those jobs.

No evidence that illegal aliens drive up unemployment?

But what do most Americans know, all they have is common sense. They don't see what CATO sees at Chipotle, which I suppose are a bunch of ghosts, since all kinds of "studies" would indicate that they can't be real Americans who took those jobs that illegal aliens were doing.

Comment:

Who do you think is right, Beck, or Griswold? That's easy for you to answer for yourselves. Just reread the article and it is more than obvious who's talking sense and who's full of horse manure. Mr. Beck may not be a National Socialist, but when it comes to immigration, he's pretty much on the same page as us. Not quite, but close. In addition to stopping illegal immigration, I'd like to see a ten year moratorium on ALL immigration to restore the immigrant/native-born ratio to a more sensible level.

When the immigrants nearly outnumber the native-borns, then something is really wrong.
