California backs constitutional amendment limiting campaign money

BY JEREMY B. WHITE 
Fresno Bee June 23, 2014


Seeking to reverse a tide of money inundating politics, the Democratic-controlled California Senate on Monday called for an amendment to the U.S. Constitution limiting corporate campaign activity.
"If the only voice heard is the one with the most money," said Sen. Mark Leno, D-San Francisco, "what's become of our democracy?"
While Assembly Joint Resolution 1 does not by itself force any changes, both houses of the California Legislature have now embraced language that unequivocally pushes back on a landmark Supreme Court case equating corporate campaign spending with free speech. The 23-11 vote, with many Republicans in opposition, came the day after more than a dozen protesters were arrested at the State Capitol for demonstrating against money in politics.
The proposed amendment would narrow the doctrine of corporate personhood and would "declare that money does not constitute speech and may be legislatively limited." It states that corporations should have fewer rights than human beings, noting that corporations do not vote.
"Voters are clearly fed up, and polling shows this, with the notion that money is speech and that big money can drown out the speech of average Americans," said Sen. Mark DeSaulnier, D-Concord.
For Congress to convene a constitutional convention empowered to amend the U.S. constitution, two-thirds of state Legislatures need to be on board. The bar is even higher to ratify a proposed amendment: three quarters of states must approve.
Given that math, translating the resolution into law is a long shot. Vermont has passed a similar measure and Illinois is contemplating one, but even with the assent of those two and California 33 additional states would need to petition Congress.
Comment:
I often say that voting is a waste of time.  This one may be an exception to the rule.  If 33 states call for this amendment, we can end corporate personhood  once and for all.  Corporations are institutions, not people.  Originally, corporations were given person-status for the purposes of taxes, not politics.
If I were a corporate big shot, I'd be doing a little sweating now.  If we can get this done it will be a major blow to Judeo-Capitalism.  It will mean a major loss of power for them and the loss of the right to donate unlimited amounts to politicians anonymously or publicly.
If you've never voted before, this one is a good place to start.  I'm also certain that if the Judeo-Capitalists manage to crush this, many people will be thinking about getting out their torches and pitchforks.  I'm already sharpening mine to be on the safe side.  And yes I really do own a pitchfork.  I guess I'll have to make my own torches.

UK Columnist Booker: US Cooling Since '30s, Global Warming Data 'Fabricated'

Monday, 23 Jun 2014 11:32 AM
By Melanie Batley

Global warming data has been manipulated to grossly misrepresent warming trends, and scientists have suppressed climate records indicating that the 1930s was the hottest decade on record in the United States, says U.K. journalist Christopher Booker.


"When future generations try to understand how the world got carried away around the end of the 20th century by the panic over global warming, few things will amaze them more than the part played in stoking up the scare by the fiddling of official temperature data," Booker, author of "The Real Global Warming Disaster," wrote in a column for The Sunday Telegraph of London. 


Booker said that while he found evidence of fiddled climate figures while writing his book seven years ago, Steven Goddard's blog "Real Science" has uncovered another example of it when looking at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's graph of U.S. surface temperatures.


The group, Goddard claims, has been "adjusting" its records by replacing real temperatures with data "fabricated" by computer models. The effect has been to make earlier periods seem cooler, while more recent temperatures have been inaccurately presented as higher to give the impression that the Earth has been warming much more than the actual data suggests.


Using actual temperatures, graphs indicate that the United States has been cooling since the '30s, Goddard has shown, according to Booker, even though the official graphs are showing that the the Earth has been warming at a rate equal to more than 3 degrees centigrade per century.


"When I first began examining the global-warming scare, I found nothing more puzzling than the way officially approved scientists kept on being shown to have finagled their data, as in that ludicrous 'hockey stick' graph, pretending to prove that the world had suddenly become much hotter than at any time in 1,000 years," Booker wrote. 


"Any theory needing to rely so consistently on fudging the evidence, I concluded, must be looked on not as science at all, but as simply a rather alarming case study in the aberrations of group psychology."

Comment:

At least somebody is willing to tell the truth about phony global warming.
Let me tell you a true story.  When I decided to retire from teaching back in 2003, I had three weeks of personal time that I had to use or lose.  I left teaching three weeks before the end of the school year around the beginning of June.  At that time I was in to wearing flannel shirts.  Even though it was June, it was still cool enough for them.  I remember sitting in my living room watching TV on the last day of school.  That was around June 20.  I was still wearing flannel.  BTW I was living where I am now - same house.
The point is it was only 11 years ago.  If it was cool enough in June to wear flannel in San Bernardino 11 years ago, and it is not cool enough today, it is not because of global warming.  They said three degrees per century.  Eleven years wouldn't even account for half a degree.  Believe me it is way too hot this June for flannel.  We hit the low 90's today and haven't seen a drop of rain three months, and probably won't get any for at least another four.  
What they say about global warming could not account for this sharp rise in temperature over the last eleven years.  Less than eleven years, actually.  The next year was about the same.  Now the next year it was suddenly much hotter.  In fact it was too hot for flannel by March.  It has basically stayed that way for the last nine years.  HOT, HOT, HOT.  We hardly had any winter at all last year.  Maybe a dozen days where you could wear flannel comfortably.  
The sudden change in temperature could not be caused by what is known as global warming.  2005 is also about the same time California was officially in drought conditions.  Global warming supposedly means gradual change over centuries, not sudden change in one or two years.
The Earth has gone through warming trends and cooling trends.  During the Jurassic Period 150 million years ago the average world temperature was at least 10 degrees F hotter than today.  There were no ice caps.  By the Cretaceous Period 65 million years ago the temperature was about the same as today.  The First Ice Age began about 5 million years ago.  The Third Ice Age ended about one million years ago, although some scientists say we are still in the last stages of it because the ice caps still exist.  These scientists say that it is NORMAL for the ice caps to disappear completely for thousands of years in between Ice Ages.  They say we are NATURALLY entering a warming period and it will continue until the next Ice Age begins - in about 50,000 years.  Anyway, I doubt any of us will be around to see it.

Mayweather Is World's Highest-Paid Athlete

Newsmax
Boxer Floyd Mayweather performed in the ring for less than two hours over the past year
and earned $105 million, putting him at the top of Forbes' new list of the world's highest-paid athletes.

Mayweather's September 2013 fight against Canelo Alvarez set records for highest pay-for-view gross ($150 million), live gate ($20 million), and total revenue, about $200 million.
The boxer, who is undefeated as a professional, also won a fight in May of this year. All his earnings came from his fights, and he had no endorsement earnings.
Forbes' earnings figures include all salaries and bonuses paid out between June 1, 2013, and June 1 of this year. Endorsement incomes are an estimate of sponsorship deals, appearance fees, and licensing fees for the 12-month period. Investment income is not included.
Collectively, the 100 highest-paid athletes earned $2.75 billion over the 12 months, up 5 percent over the previous year.
"The rise is a result of rising salaries for elite players as exploding TV rights fees fuel higher revenues across sports around the world," Forbes observed.
Endorsements totaled $741 million this year.
Baseball players were the most numerous on the list (27), although none made the top 25, followed by basketball (18), football (17), and soccer (15).
Americans accounted for 60 of the top 100 spots.
After Mayweather, the highest-paid athlete is Cristiano Ronaldo, who plays soccer for Real Madrid and earned $80 million, including $52 million in salary.
LeBron James of the NBA's Miami Heat is No. 3, earning $19.3 million in salary and $53 million thanks to endorsement deals with Nike, McDonald's, Coca-Cola and others, for a total of $72.3 million.


Next is Barcelona soccer star Lionel Messi, who earned $64.7 million, including $41.7 million in salary and $23 million in endorsements.
Los Angeles Laker Kobe Bryant earned $61.5 million, thanks to a two-year, $48.5 million contract extension he signed in November.
Tiger Woods, the first athlete to earn $100 million in a Forbes annual tally, made $61.2 million last year, most of it from endorsement deals.
No. 7 is tennis player Roger Federer, who pocketed $52 million from sponsors, including Nike and Rolex, and had total earnings of $56.2 million.
Golfer Phil Mickelson earned $48 million from appearances and his endorsement partners, including Exxon Mobil, and had total earnings of $53.2 million.
No. 9 is tennis player Rafael Nadal, who made $44.5 million. Matt Ryan of the NFL's Atlanta Falcons is No. 10 with $43.8 million in earnings.
Rounding out the top 15 are Manny Pacquiao (boxing, $41.8 million); Zlatan Ibrahimovic (soccer, $40.4 million); Derrick Rose (basketball, $36.6 million); Gareth Bale (soccer, $36.4 million); and Radamel Falcao (soccer, $35.4 million).
Mickelson is the oldest athlete in the top 100, turning 44 in June, and Brazilian soccer star Neymar is the youngest at 22, ranking No. 16.
The list includes one track and field star, Usain Bolt at No. 45, who earned $23.2 million almost exclusively from endorsements, and one cricket player, No. 22 Mahendra Singh Dhoni ($30 million).
The lowest-paid at No. 100 on the list is soccer player Luis Suarez, who earned "only" $17.3 million.
The list includes only athletes who were active in the last 12 months. If retired basketball player Michael Jordan were included, he would rank No. 2 with an estimated $90 million in earnings thanks largely to his deal with Nike.
Comment:
This is enough to make you sick.  But that's how it is in this sick society of ours.  We glorify athletes and make them into heroes.  Teachers make about $40,000 a years, and a bunch of sweaty Negroes and Mestizos get paid millions for playing with little balls like we all did when we were kids.
To be fair, golfers Roger Federer and Phil Mickelson are White.  Soccer players Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Lionel Messi, and Gareth Bale are also White.  Surprise!  Matt Ryan of the Atlanta Falcons is White.  Probably one of the token Whites of the NFL.
Of the 18 athletes mentioned by name, only six are White.  The other 12 are non-Whites.
People sacrifice and struggle to go to college and get good jobs.  No one makes heroes out of them.  In fact these days most of those people can't even get good jobs.  Yet idiots who play with balls for a living make millions.  Then again, the idiot fans are the ones who are really responsible.  Who's the bigger idiot, the idiot players, or the idiot fans?  Good question.  I wish I had a good answer.
This world in general, and this country especially have their priorities all screwed up. Athletics are an important part of a society - but as players, not spectators.
These are typical fans.  If they actually tried to play they'd kill themselves or have a heart attack.  Pathetic.

Sotomayor: Affirmative Action Options Don't Work

Sunday, 22 Jun 2014 04:27 PM

Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor on Sunday rejected the notion that alternatives to affirmative action such as income or residency could achieve similar results in diversifying the nation's colleges and universities.

When asked whether other "less fractious" measures could achieve similar results for schools, she said that statistics show the alternatives simply don't work.


Sotomayor strongly backs affirmative action and wrote the dissent in April in a 6-2 decision that upheld a state's right to outlaw the use of race in determining admissions.

Sotomayor is the first Hispanic on the Supreme Court and graduated from Princeton University. She said her alma mater could fill its freshman class with students who scored perfectly on undergraduate metrics, but it chooses not to do so because it would not create a diverse class based on standards the school considers important for success in life.

She also pointed out that some students boost their prospects for attending a school based on their family's history.

"Look, we have legacy admissions. If your parents or your grandparents have been to that school, they're going to give you an advantage in getting into the school again," Sotomayor said. "Legacy admission is a wonderful thing because it means even if you're not as qualified as others you're going to get that slight advantage."

Sotomayor participated in the rare television interview on ABC's "This Week" as she promotes the paperback edition of her book, "My Beloved World."

Comment:

As Sotomayor is a non-White, what other response would you expect?  It has been proven historically that any group with an advantage or privilege (including Whites) never gives it up without a fight. Things have changed today.  Whites seem all too willing to give up more and more to the non-Whites.

I have always compared Affirmative Action to a game of one-on-one where one player spots another play some points.  I never spot anyone points.  If you're not better than me, don't play me.

With Affirmative Action non-White college applicants are being spotted points by the government.  I don't believe for one minute that a college or university has any obligation to have as diversified a student body as possible.  If a student does make the grade, or another student does better, than the superior student should get the admission.  If the students who do the best are mostly White, then that's the way it is.  Even if the claims that White students generally attend better schools during the K-12 years are true (and in some cases it is), that's not the problem, or the fault of the colleges. Regardless of the circumstances, the best students should get the admissions.

It's the same with jobs.  Regardless of circumstances or race, the most qualified people should get the jobs.  If I owned a business that had a payroll, my attitude is that my only duty is to deal with my customers fairly while doing what is best for my business, and not to have as diversified a payroll as possible.  I would want the best people for what the pay I'm offering. If the best person is always White, that is not my personal fault or my personal problem.

In any community there are the superior, and the inferior.  Even among the White race there are superior Whites and inferior Whites.  In any society there are also leaders and followers. I know it sucks for those less smart and less educated than others, but it's only logical.  The superior should lead, and the rest must follow.

BTW, the year is now half over.  Tempus Fugit (Time Flies).

Most New Illegals Are Working Age Men - Not Women And Children

Numbers USA
Photos from Congressman Henry Cueller's (D-Texas) trip to the U.S.-Mexico border in South Texas provide some more details on exactly what's happening down there. Contrary to statements made by both the Obama Administration and pro-amnesty advocates, the border crisis is much more than women and children trying to escape violence and a bad economy in Central America.
Rep. Cueller's pictures depict dozens of working-aged illegal aliens filling up the Border Patrol offices in the Rio Grande Valley sector. Some are noting that the images are far different from some of the ones shown on network news.

We've been saying for years that when the federal government neglects its obligation to enforce the law and tosses around the idea of granting amnesty to illegal aliens, it becomes an open invitation for the rest of the world to come to the U.S. illegally.
In 2006, we witnessed one of the largest illegal-alien border surges in our nation's history when Congress was considering the Kennedy-Bush-McCain amnesty bill that was eventually defeated. Then, Pres. George W. Bush sent 6,000 National Guard troops to help the Border Patrol stem the tide.
We came to you earlier this week asking for action on an amendment offered by Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) to the 2015 Defense spending bill that would have shifted funding from other defense agencies to the National Guard to help assist the Border Patrol. But the bill manager, Rep. Rodney Frelinghuysen (R-N.J.) used a procedural move to block it. Rep. Gohmert is still fighting to offer his amendment.
Meanwhile, several Members of Congress have spoken out against the situation on the border. We've posted faxes thanking those Members on your Action Board. We've also posted faxes for the four border states, urging the governors to call up the National Guard to assist the Border Patrol.
Comment:
The government and the media claim the new arrivals are mostly unattended children.  I don't see any kids, do you?
I suppose we're supposed to feel pity for all these men crammed into a cell like that.  Aww, poor mistreated people.  If they had stayed home they wouldn't be in the mess they are in right now, so they shouldn't look to me for any sympathy.
You know what we should do?  We should start sending bills to all the Mestizo countries for the costs of having to deal with THEIR citizens.  Why should we have to foot the bill?  But then again, the whole world seems to think that the rich Americans should always have to foot the bill.
It's high time we started refusing to pay the costs of all this nonsense.  If Mexico, Belize, Honduras, Guatemala, El Salvador, Costa Rica, and Panama can't control their people, maybe we should give them a hand.  We can pull our troops out of the Middle East and deploy them in Central America.  If their governments can't handle the situation, then let's do it for them.  I know that will also cost us money, but in the long run we'll save money by stopping the illegals before they even get out of their native lands.

California Voters Can Limit State Spending

By Michael Reagan


One of the curious behaviors of the left in this country is its political class often emulates the very behavior it uses as an example of the misfortune of others. Whether the misfortune was brought on by the suffering individual or it landed on their lives like an asteroid in the backyard, is immaterial.
Take the dreaded condition known as "living paycheck to paycheck." In the eyes of the left this is a potentially disastrous way to live because even a slight interruption in income leaves that individual with no resources to fall back upon.
Yet that’s exactly how the California leftists in the legislature choose for the state to live.
The legislature just approved a record $156.4 billion budget for the fiscal year that begins July 1. According to Newsmax: “The plan passed by the Democratic-controlled Senate and Assembly boosts state outlays 5.8 percent in the fiscal year beginning July 1. The general fund, which pays for most state services, will rise 9.6 percent to $108 billion.”
Yet only three short years ago the state had a $25 billion deficit to compare with this year’s surge in revenue. For me, as a California resident, this would imply that tax revenue in California is not a constant revenue stream, but rather is subject to wild fluctuation. In light of that, a prudent man would save money when revenues are high, so he can make up for the shortfall when revenue decreases.
Strangely enough that is exactly what Gov. Jerry Brown was saying. He urged the legislature to set aside some of the money for a rainy day fund to avoid a budget crisis in the future. The legislature considered his idea for about a second and replied, “Drinks are on the house!”
Is it any wonder that a comprehensive study of state governments published by USA Today ranked California the worst managed state in the nation for three years running? The 2013 report had debt per person at $3,990. And concluded, “The Golden State was also among the worst states in the nation for educational attainment, health coverage, and unemployment.”
Since the legislature can’t control itself, Sacramento is hoping the voters will act as the adults in the room. This November we will be voting on an amendment to the state constitution that requires that 1.5 percent of general fund revenue be earmarked each year for a rainy day fund, along with any capital-gains taxes that exceed 8 percent of the general fund.
Let’s hope it passes, because there are no payday lenders to bail out profligate spending states.

Michael Reagan is the son of former President Ronald Reagan and chairman of the League of American Voters. His blog appears on reaganreports.com
Comment:
The ANP has been saying this about both state and federal budgets for years.  They overspend, and use credit.  I've been saying that someday we'll reach our credit limit. That time seems to be coming.  
I don't know if such an amendment will do any good.  Politicians are experts at getting around the law.  However, I will vote for it.  The way I see it is if it does any good for the people of California, then fine and dandy.  If the politicians find a way of skirting it (and you know they will at least try), it will be further proof of how corrupt this system is.  Either way we'll get something out of it so I say why not?  It certainly couldn't make things worse.
Of course there's always the possibility that the Supreme Court will stick their big fat noses into it.  Case in point:  California passes a Gay marriage ban.  The California Supreme Court rules it to be unconstitutional (state constitution).  Gay marriage is legalized.  An amendment to the state constitution is passed to make the Gay marriage ban constitutional.  Gay marriage is illegal again. The U.S. Supreme Court rules the new amendment to the California State Constitution is improperly written and invalidates it. Gay marriage is legal again.
The new budget amendment could go the same route if enough politicians want to get rid of it.  If it does, who can say how the state or federal courts will rule?  We'll just have to wait and see what happens if it passes.
BTW, the conservatives in California say they will try again.  As the courts force Gay marriage on the country state-by-state, they are waiting and watching to see what technicalities the courts are using and how, hoping that they can draft a new amendment that can take all these factors into account so the U.S. Supreme Court won't be able to invalidate it again.  Fat chance.  The longer Gay marriage is legal, the more the people will tolerate it.  If they wait too long, even if they can draft an amendment properly they probably won't find enough people to vote for it.

MOST ILLEGAL-ALIEN CHILDREN IN RECENT SURGE LIKELY TO STAY, ATTORNEYS SAY

Numbers USA UPDATED:  


Hundreds of illegal-alien children continue to cross certain sectors of the U.S. southern border each day, often with their mother. In an effort to stop them from coming, the Obama Administration is claiming they are subject to deportation but immigration attorneys say the vast majority of children may be given the legal right to stay under current immigration and asylum laws.

Coyotes used to be paid to help illegal aliens get to their final destination. But now the illegal aliens – mostly from Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador. -- are just dropped off in the U.S. so they can surrender to Border Patrol Agents. “They have heard that anybody who crosses into the United States can stay,” said Albert Spratte, a Border Patrol agent and union representative in the Rio Grande Valley sector. “So they keep coming.” According to The Blaze, most illegal aliens are claiming credible fear from gang violence and seeking asylum.

Spratte told TheBlaze, “[Gang violence is] something they’re all saying and it’s obvious that it is well-rehearsed and it is a consistent story. We can’t even get them to answer their name before they tell us the gangs were the reason they fled their country.” Chris Cabrera, another union representative in the sector, told TheBlaze that on at least one occasion, they released a confirmed MS-13 gang member to his family because he had no criminal history in the United States.

The unaccompanied alien children (UACs) are given an “order to appear in court” and transferred to the custody of the Department of Health and Human Service’s Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR). If they have a family member or legal guardian in the U.S., it’s ORR’s responsibility to reunite them while the children go through removal proceedings. ORR gives the children many types of aid but the most valuable is legal assistance. ORR connects the children with immigration attorneys (e.g., the Safe Passage Project) who help them through removal proceedings for free. President Obama also recently pledged to set up legal assistance through the Americorps program.

To avoid deportation, the attorney will help the child apply for a change of status or asylum. According to a Breitbart article, the Safe Passage Project said that almost 90 percent of the UACs they encounter should qualify for some type of deportation relief. To get asylum relief, an attorney must normally demonstrate that the applicant is has “credible fear” under certain protected grounds. UACs also are eligible for “Special Immigrant Juvenile Status if they claim to have been abused, neglected, or abandoned by one or both parents, which can lead to lawful permanent residency and citizenship.


The illegal alien children traveling with a mother also get an “order to appear in court,” which gives them safe passage to some destination in the U.S. But reports say that most disappear into immigrant communities throughout the country, and do not fear deportation under the Obama Administration’s enforcement guidelines. “Once they get north of the checkpoint and into the interior of the United States, they’ve basically disappeared and there is no accountability for them,’ Agent Spratte said. “[ICE] isn’t going to deport them and these people know it. It’s worth it for them to come now just in case something later changes with regard to deportation.”

Comment:

This new trend could be the last nail in America's coffin.  All the ANP has been predicting is coming to pass.  No one listened to us.  Just look at the results.

I get tired of repeating myself.  I'm starting to sound like a broken record.  If people had listened to us years ago we wouldn't be in this mess now.  But noooo!  We are evil Nazis and shouldn't be listened to.

The Bible says that we reap what we have sown.  How true that is.

I'm not talking about politicians.  I'm talking about ordinary people.  The liberals don't seem to get that there is NOT enough in this country to give to everyone who wants to come here. Liberals talk about compassion for those in need.  What about compassion for our own people?  Resources are finite.  Something has got to give.

Folks, it still isn't too late to turn things around.  But as you can see the time it will be too late is rapidly approaching.  It could very well be too late by as soon as 2016.  That's less than two years.  As I've often said, the end is nearer than you'd like to think.

National Socialism brought Germany back from the brink of oblivion.  It can bring America back too.  But not unless we get enough support.  We need every one of you to stand with us. As Hitler said, "It's not enough to say, 'I believe'.  You must also say, 'I FIGHT!'"

Are you going to fight, or are you going to throw up your hands and say, "There's nothing I can do."  There's of course the ever popular, "I don't have the time.  I have to work."  If you even have work, that is.

One more little tidbit to ponder.  I'm sure you all have noticed how much coverage the media has given the World Cup (soccer).  There are not too many White Americans who like soccer. Twelve - even eight years ago the WC would not have gotten so much coverage.  It's not just because America is playing.  It's because the rising immigrant and non-White population have made soccer more important in this country than it was ten years ago.  Think about it.

Attacks on Teachers Set New Record

Newsmax


The number of U.S. teachers who were physically attacked set an all-time record in the 2011-2012 school year 209,800 primary and secondary school teachers reported being physically attacked by students, a new government report reveals.
That was up 34.5 percent from the previous record of 156,000 teachers who were attacked in the 2007-2008 school year.
The 208-page report was released on Monday by the Justice Department's Bureau of Justice Statistics and the Department of Education's National Center for Educational Statistics, and offers the most recent "national indicators" on school crime and safety.
"Our nation's schools should be safe havens for teaching and learning, free of crime and violence," the report states.
The report defines a physical attack as "an actual and intentional touching or striking of another person against his or her will, or the intentional causing of bodily harm to an individual."
During 2011-2012, 5 percent of teachers reported being physically attacked by a student, and on average, 1,175 teachers were physically attacked each day of the school year, according to data based on the responses of nearly 60,000 public and private school teachers.
Among teachers in public schools, 197,400 or about 6 percent reported being attacked, as did 12,400 or 3 percent of private school teachers.
Six percent of female teachers reported being attacked, compared to 4 percent of male teachers.
The report also disclosed that 9 percent of teachers reported being threatened with injury by a student in 2011-2012.
Among the states, the percentage of public school teachers who were threatened with injury ranged from 5 percent in Oregon to 18 percent in Louisiana.
And the percentage who reported being physically attacked ranged from 3 percent in Alabama, Mississippi, North Dakota, Oregon, and Tennessee to 11 percent in Wisconsin.
Comment:
I find it interesting how they failed to mention the states with higher incidents of attacks on teachers.  Why?  Because those states are the ones with the higher immigrant-non-White student population.
It's a fact.  School districts with a predominantly White population have a lower incidence of attacks on teachers and predominantly non-White districts have a much higher rate. Gee, what a big surprise.
California actually is the leader in attacks and threats on teachers.  As many as 25 percent of teachers have reported being attacked or threatened.  California has a statewide average student demographics of 55% Mestizo, 15% Black, 20% White, and 10 percent miscellaneous.
I myself was threatened on two different occasions.  I guess either they were bluffing or my 250 lb. frame made them think twice.
New York, Michigan, Illinois, and Massachusetts round out the top five in such incidents.
My home state of New Hampshire had less than one percent.  With a 93.5% White population that should come as no surprise.  And what few incidents they had were mostly committed by non-Whites.  Again, no surprise.
It is plainly obvious that violence is a way of life with most non-Whites.  Sure there are a few of them that can control themselves but not the majority.  It's partially a matter of genetics, and partially a matter of culture.  In most non-White cultures violence is interwoven.  I once read a survey.  The question was, "If you were having trouble with a neighbour that might turn violent, would you call the police or handle it yourself?" Mestizos were three times more likely to "handle it themselves" - in other words use violence - than were Whites.
And some of these non-Whites call us racists when we talk about segregation.  Has it ever occurred to them that one of the reasons we want to get away from them is because of their violence?  Perhaps because violence is more natural to them than us, maybe they haven't thought of that.

Northeast man may face extradition for Nazi war crimes

Last updated: Thursday, June 19, 2014, 1:08 AM

Stooped, slightly dazed, and hobbling with a cane for support, 89-year-old Johann Breyer shuffled into a federal courtroom Wednesday to account once again for his role in atrocities committed nearly a lifetime ago.

Federal authorities arrested the retired Northeast Philadelphia toolmaker, who worked as an armed guard at two Nazi death camps during World War II, and said they would support a bid to send him back to Germany, where he was charged Tuesday with aiding and abetting the murder of 158 trainloads of European Jews.

The extradition request comes a decade after a failed Justice Department effort to deport Breyer for his role in the war and amid a renewed push in Germany to hold to account surviving SS soldiers who played even ancillary roles in the Holocaust.


If an American judge approves their request, Breyer, who has lived in a redbrick rowhouse near Pennypack Park for nearly four decades, would become the oldest person extradited from the United States to face allegations of Nazi-related crimes.

Comment:

Roebuck is right about one thing.  I'm not going to argue about whether there were any atrocities or not, but something happened.  We may never know exactly how much is true and how much is a lie, but whatever it was it DID happen a lifetime ago.  It was 69 years ago and earlier.

The thing is the Jews are NEVER satisfied.  They'll do ANYTHING to keep reminding us of the Holohoax.  As all the big "baddies" have either been executed, jailed, or died without standing trial (such as Dr. Josef Mengele), they are now going after anyone who was even remotely connected with the camps.  I'll bet they would consider people who delivered supplies to the camp guilty simply because they were there at one point or another - even if they never got any further than the front office.

Within ten years there probably won't be anybody left alive who was an adult in 1945.  What's next?  Are they going to start hauling people who were children at the time into court and prosecuting them as war criminals because they may know something about what happened?   Hey I have a good idea!  Since Dr. Mengele was never caught and died a free man, how about we arrest his son Rolf and make him pay for his father's so-called crimes? After all Rolf was born before 1945 and his wife Irene took Rolf (as an infant) to visit his father at Auschwitz, so he was there.  That must make him guilty by Jewish standards.  Sounds pretty stupid, huh? Indeed it is.  But when it comes to the Jews, you just never know.

George Clooney May Be Considering Run for California Governor

Tuesday, 17 Jun 2014 11:38 AM

George Clooney is reportedly mulling a foray into politics, according to sources who claim the Oscar-winning actor is considering a run for California governor in 2018.



"George is hugely popular with the Democrats and where better place to put him than as the Governor of California, the home of Hollywood," the source said. "It has always been a huge stronghold for the party and one that has a proven record for getting politicians into the Oval office. Now that [fiancée] Amal [Alamuddin] is by his side it has boosted his credentials even higher."



Clooney announced his engagement to Alamuddin, a London-based human rights lawyer, in April.



Politics is not altogether foreign to the "Gravity" star, as he has spent years as an active humanitarian, often campaigning for human rights issues. He was even arrested for demonstrating outside the Sudanese embassy in 2012.



Similarly, politics is not an altogether foreign field for actors, especially in California. After a successful film and TV career, Ronald Reagan served two terms as California governor. He went on to become the 40th President of the United States.



"Terminator" actor Arnold Schwarzenegger also served as California governor for two terms, in 2003 and 2007.



Comment:


You know, this is so stupid I debated with myself as to whether I should waste anyone's time with it. However, seeing as how most Americans are obsessed with celebrities, I decided to post it.

George Clooney is not fit to be governor, let alone president or a congressman.  But then again neither was Ahnold (governor of California), Jesse Ventura (governor of Minnesota), Sonny Buono (Congressman from California), or what's his name who played "Gopher" on "The Love Boat" (Congressman from ?).  I'm sure the same can be said for the late great Ronald Reagan as well.  These idiots were elected because they were celebrities.  If you're a popular movie or TV star or a singer, and you want to run for high office, you have a good chance of winning in this celebrity-happy country of ours as long as you have the money to pay for a decent campaign.

This just goes to show you the mentality of the average American.  In many ways government elections aren't all that much different from student body elections back in high school.  Back in school elections were nothing more than popularity contests.  When it comes to government elections it isn't much different.  If you've got a little charisma and are a celebrity you are in.

If Clooney does run for governor I bet he will win.  When it comes to things like this, Californians are among the dumbest in America.  Wait, I take that back.  I don't think calling them dumb is fair.  Shallow is a better word.  Californians are among the shallowest people in the country.  When it comes to material things Californians really love all the bells and whistles.  When it comes to elected officials they love flash, charisma, and celebrities.  Ever watch the show TMZ?  That stands for Thirty Mile Zone.  That's the thirty mile zone around Hollyjewood.  The people on that show are perfect examples of real Californians.  Well, I guess we all get what we deserve.  Totally awesome dude fer sure!

Border Agents: We Can't Stop Influx of Young Mexican Gang Members

Sunday, 15 Jun 2014 05:58 PM
By Elliot Jager

The door is wide open for young Mexican gang members to enter the United States to be reunited with their families, frustrating border patrol personnel who are powerless to stop them, The Washington Times reported.

Border Patrol union representatives say that even youths with tattoos identifying them as members of the Mara Salvatrucha gang have unrestricted access to the country.

"If he's a confirmed gang member in his own country, why are we letting him in here? I've heard people come in and say, 'You're going to let me go, just like you let my mother go, just like you let my sister go. You're going to let me go as well, and the government's going to take care of us,'" said Chris Cabrera, of the National Border Patrol Council Local 3307 in the Rio Grande Valley, according to National Review.

Cabrera said that only tighter restrictions on who can may cross the border can stem the flow of minors.

"Until we start mandatory detentions, mandatory removals, I don't think anything is going to change. As a matter of fact, I think it's going to get worse," Cabrera said.

Meanwhile, Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., said her staff had confirmed that Mexican radio outlets have been putting out rumors that the doors to the U.S. are open to minors from Mexico and Central America. This has led to a deluge that is overwhelming Border Patrol stations. 

The rumors are being instigated by human traffickers, according to The Washington Post.

Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson insisted that children regardless of age who are illegally entering the U.S. "are priorities for removal," the Post reported. 

They do not qualify under the administration's "dreamers" program. Homeland Security plans to use television, radio, and newspaper advertising in Latin America to dissuade parents from sending their children to the U.S. in the hands of smugglers.

Most of the 47,000 children who have arrived illegally at the U.S. border in 2014 are from Mexico and can be immediately deported. Minors from other Latin American countries cannot be turned away and must be sent to a shelter pending efforts to unite them with a relative, NBC reported.

Republicans accuse the administration of stoking illegal immigration by sending mixed policy signals, the Post reported.

Comment:


Why do we have to "reunite" anyone with their families?  Like I've said before, give them one square meal and ship them home.  Enough with the sniveling about "compassion" and all that crap.  We are being invaded. The usual scenario with invasion is military forces first, then colonists.  The Mestizos are simply doing it without the military.  The colonists are just showing up and expect to be welcomed.  

These colonists bring with them crime, disease, and corruption.  As Hitler said, we have to defend our borders ruthlessly if necessary.  We must do likewise.

Once Arizona governor Jan Brewer threatened to send the national guard to the border. Obama backed her down.  Eventually, the governor of one of the border states will have the cojones to go through with it despite a presidential order.  It will be interesting to see what happens if that ever occurs.

There is nothing wrong with defending one's homeland against invaders.  We are being invaded.  It's time we started defending ourselves against them rather than welcoming them. Just because they are not an army, doesn't make them any less of an invader.
