Administration Tells Border Agents to ID Which Illegals Not to Deport

Wednesday, 28 Jan 2015 06:25 AM


The Obama administration has ordered immigration agents to ask immigrants they encounter living in the country illegally whether they might qualify under President Barack Obama's plans to avoid deporting them, according to internal training materials obtained by The Associated Press.

Agents also have been told to review government files to identify any jailed immigrants they might be able to release under the program.

The directives from the Homeland Security Department mark an unusual change for U.S. immigration enforcement, placing the obligation on the government for identifying immigrants who might qualify for lenient treatment. Previously, it was the responsibility of immigrants or their lawyers to assert that they might qualify under rules that could keep them out of jail and inside the United States.


It's akin to the Internal Revenue Service calling taxpayers to recommend they should have used certain exemptions or deductions.


The training materials apply to agents for Customs and Border Protection and Immigration and Customs Enforcement. They instruct agents "to immediately begin identifying persons in their custody, as well as newly encountered persons" who may be eligible for protection from deportation.

One training document includes scenarios describing encounters between agents and immigrants with guidance about how agents should proceed, with a checklist of questions to determine whether immigrants might qualify under the president's plans. ICE officials earlier began releasing immigrants who qualified for leniency from federal immigration jails.

Obama in November announced a program to allow roughly 4 million parents of U.S. citizens and legal permanent residents to apply for permission to stay in the country for up to three years and get a work permit. The program mirrors one announced in 2012 that provides protection from deportation for young immigrants brought to the country as children.

A spokesman for Customs and Border Protection, Carlos Diaz, said immigrants caught crossing the border illegally remain a top priority for the agency. The training documents for border agents, he said, "provide clear guidance on immigration enforcement operations so that both time and resources are allocated appropriately."



Crystal Williams, executive director for the American Immigration Lawyers Association in Washington, said the training will help filter people the government said should not be a priority anyway. She said the training marked the first she has heard of officers being directed to screen immigrants for potential leniency before they were arrested.

"Just because it's a change doesn't mean it's anything particularly radical," Williams said.

Rep. Luis Gutierrez, an Illinois Democrat and vocal supporter of Obama's immigration plans, said having CBP officers screen immigrants out of the deportation line lets the government "move criminals and recent arrivals to the front of the deportation line. The emphasis now is on who should be deported first, not just who can be deported."

A former deputy assistant attorney general in the Justice Department, John Malcolm, said the new instructions limit immigration agents.

"Agents are being discouraged away from anything other than a cursory view" of an immigrant's status and qualification for leniency, said Malcolm, who works as a senior legal fellow at the conservative Heritage Foundation think tank in Washington.

Under Obama's plans, the government is focused on deporting immigrants with serious criminal records or who otherwise pose a threat to national security or public safety. For the most part, under the new policy, immigrants whose only offense is being in the country without permission aren't supposed to be a priority for immigration officers.


While the administration has estimated that as many as 4 million people will be eligible for protection from deportation, the Congressional Budget Office estimated about 2 million to 2.5 million immigrants are expected to be approved for the program by 2017. As many as 1.7 million young immigrants were estimated to be eligible for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, but since its 2012 creation only about 610,000 people have successfully signed up.

Comment:

I loved the bit about comparing the administration's orders that having the Border Patrol ask illegals whether they qualify for any government plans to avoid deportation with the IRS asking taxpayer if they've taken advantage of all the deductions and loopholes in the law.  It's also like the cops asking perps if they think they might qualify to have the charges against them dismissed under some technicality in the law.

Let's face it.  Things are beyond ridiculous.  That was 20 years ago.  Now we've moved up to just plain crazy.  And it only promises to get worse.  If anyone doesn't believe that I suggest you pull your heads out of your ass and take a good look around.

The liberals say they're not destroying the world, but trying to create a new one.  If that is so, I'd like to say to them that the words "new" and "improved" don't necessarily go together.  Just because something is old doesn't mean we need to toss it and get a new one.  After all we're talking about laws, custom, tradition, and people, not computer technology.

No matter how much the liberals want things to change, if the change is unworkable then it is unworkable.  And if it is unworkable, then no amount of effort can change that.

Most people are not ready for a literal "One World, One People".  Maybe they will someday, but not today.  And as long as I'm alive there will always be at least one holdout.

Student Loans And Credit Cards, Or How To Get Into Debt Without Really Trying

STUDENT LOANS

One of the most important lessons students learn in college is how to get into debt and stay there. It's crucial to the success of the Republic. An indebted population is easier to control; needing to pay off crushing debt - a debt that if defaulted on has been stripped of many normal consumer protections and rights - graduates more willingly shuttle into cubicles, becoming the square pegs demanded by the square holes. After a few futile years of floundering idealism, their souls have been successfully jackbooted into powder and they're ready to keep the thumb on the next generation of would-be drones so as to protect their empire of matchsticks. But how did we get here?
Student Loans SOUND like a great opportunity for lower-income persons to get a college education, but don’t be fooled – IT’S A TRAP!  Here’s how it works.
Sallie Mae is the largest originator of student loans in this country.  For example, they loan you $20,000 for college expenses with a twelve year term (some are only ten).  The federal government guarantees the FULL amount of this loan.  THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO RISK to Sallie Mae.
You begin to pay off the loan at 8.8% interest over 12 years.  Less than 9 percent.  Sounds pretty good, right?  Do the math.  Over 12 years, that loan has cost you $3,376 , plus the $20,000 principal, making it $23,376.  Now that’s a chunk of change.
Okay, now you graduate and it’s time to get a job.  But suppose you can’t find one?  Or suppose you do, but it’s low paying.  Nine months after you graduate, your payments begin.  You find yourself with about a $293 month payment that you can’t afford.  Now, they will allow you to defer your payments until you find a job.  But there’s a catch.  With bankers and the government, there’s ALWAYS a catch.  You don’t have to make your payments for awhile, but the interest keeps accruing.  That means while you’re trying to find work in this economy, your balance continues to creep up.  The longer you defer, the more you owe.
What are your options?  How about bankruptcy?  People and businesses do it all the time.   They either have their debts discharged, or refinanced so they can afford the payments.  If you’re drowning and going down for the third time, it could be your only lifeline.  So you can declare bankruptcy, right?  WRONG! 
Who has guaranteed this loan?  THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT!  That means if you fail to pay back Sallie Mae, the government must pay.  Who issues bankruptcies?  THE GOVERNMENT!  Are they going to screw themselves into paying YOUR loan?  NO WAY!  The government does not allow bankruptcies to cover any money you owe them, such as taxes, or any money that you may cost them, like a student loan.
Quite frankly, you are in a neat little trap, and there are only two ways out.  One is by dying.  Students loans cannot be attached to your estate.  If you die, the government is left holding the bag on this one.  But then again, how many of us want to die just to screw the government? 
The other way is to become permanently disabled and go on some form of disability pay such as Social Security Disability or SSI.  But you must apply for a discharge.  If you don’t, you still have to pay.
So, unless you die, or become permanently disabled, you have no way out.  You are trapped.  Many have been trapped as long as thirty years before they could dig themselves out of this financial hole.
Maybe you think you can just refuse to make your payments.  After all, there’s nothing they can foreclose on or repossess, right?  True, but the law allows for the toughest collection methods for delinquent student loans, such as wage garnishment WITHOUT a court order, suspension of any professional licenses you may have – including truck driver’s and chauffer/bus driving licenses, garnishment of disability pay (if you are not permanently disabled), and garnishment of regular social security.  Yes, social security.  Like with murder, there is NO statute of limitations on delinquent student loans.
You could stop paying your student loans, and they hassle you for awhile, put a black mark on your credit report, and then stop.  You think you’re in the clear, and they gave up.  DON’T BELIEVE THAT FOR ONE SECOND.  As long as they law allows it, they will NEVER give up.  They may stop for awhile, but like the Terminator, THEY’LL BE BACK!
The government wants its money back, so eventually they’ll send your account to General Revenue Collection Agency (GRC).  GRC adds a 25% collection fee, plus they also get a 28% commission if they successfully collect from you, which YOU have to pay.  That means about an extra $1,500.  The longer you went without paying, the larger their fee and commission will be.  Since there is no statute of limitations, they usually wait a few years before hassling you.  Just when you think you’re in the clear – WHAM!  They hit you with this.
Guess who owns GRC?  Why it’s none other than the originator of the loan, good old Sallie Mae.  They loan you the money, you default, they get paid by the government, and the government pays them again to collect the loan FOR them!  That’s called taking a second bite out of the apple.  Now that’s one of the slickest bankster tricks ever.  You really have to admire their deviousness in a way.
So as you can see, it is highly profitable to both Sallie Mae AND the government when people default on their student loans.  Al Lord and Tim Fitzpatrick, both of whom have been CEO’s of Sallie Mae, have made over $400 million dollars from defaults alone.

The government, who has to pay any extra interest and penalties you accrued between the time of your default, and the time GRC collects from you gets that paid back as well.  Both have profited from your misfortune, as is standard practice with Judeo-Capitalism.

CBO Report: Obamacare to Cost Government $50K Per Person

Tuesday, 27 Jan 2015 12:05 PM
  

A bombshell report from the Congressional Budget Office reveals that it will cost the federal government $50,000 for every person who gets health insurance under Obamacare law.

According to the Daily Mail.com, the astounding figure was "buried" in a 15-page section of the nonpartisan organization's budget forecast for the next 10 years. 



The CBO said that in a best-case scenario, "'between 24 million and 27 million" fewer Americans would be uninsured in 2025, compared to the year before the Affordable Care Act was implemented, the Mail noted.

And the report estimated that the price tag for insuring that number of people would be about $1.35 trillion  or $50,000 per person.

The CBO says it cost $1.993 trillion for insurance subsidies to struggling Americans, and to pay for a widespread expansion of Medicaid and Children's Health Insurance Program.

The amount would be offset by $643 billion in new taxes, penalties and fees related to the Obamacare law, according to the report, the newspaper said.



The "taxes" include fines for people who refuse to buy medical insurance as well as the levy on a controversial medical device tax that the GOP-run Congress hopes to eliminate.

The CBO and the Joint Committee on Taxation, which consists of members from both houses of Congress, prepared the report on the long-term outlook for the federal budget, according to the Mail.

The report said that "'the net costs of the coverage provisions of the [Affordable Care Act] will rise sharply as the effects of the act phase in from 2015 through 2017."

It also said that the Obamacare costs will "rise steadily through 2022" before leveling off for three years. But even then, Obamacare will cost the government "about $145 billion."


Comment:

Is anyone surprised at this?  I'm not.  We all know that Obama's "pie-in-the-sky" dream programs are going to cost a fortune.  In this Judeo-Capitalist society how could it be otherwise?

The only way the government is going to be able to get anything done is if we first get a new system where the bottom line is the welfare of the people and NOT the Almighty Dollar.That system is National Socialism.

Secondly, when we all start pulling in the SAME direction and not every which way but loose.

Until we can get these first two things accomplished, we will always be on a treadmill going round and round and getting nowhere.  I remember hearing a song where one of the lines was "Moving but going nowhere."  That's the current system in a nutshell.

New GOP Border Security Bill Removes Border Fences

By Neil Munro

The new border bills drafted by Republican leaders require the actual removal of at least 66 miles of anti-pedestrian border fencing between laborers in Mexico and employers in the United States.
The border bills also require the construction of only 27 miles of effective double-layer fencing along the 2,000-mile border.
“It is a remarkable that the direction of our progress is going backwards, from a goal of building 700 miles of double-layer border fencing [in 2006] to only 27 miles [in 2015],” said a Hill staffer who opposes the leaders’ bills.
“Where the double-layer fence has been put in, it has worked spectacularly. The public is with us 80, 90 percent on this issue,” he added.
The bill would remove at least 66 miles of solid metal border fencing. It will be replaced by a single layer of see-through barriers that help surveillance of would-be border crossers.
Extra fencing would be a waste of money, according to Texas Rep. Michael McCaul, chairman of the House Committee on Homeland Security.
“The bill matches resources to needs, putting 27 more miles of [double-layer] fencing where fencing is needed, and technology where technology is needed,” said the statement.
“In our conversations with outside groups, experts and stakeholders, we learned that it would be an inefficient use of taxpayer money to complete the fence. … We are using that money to utilize other technology to create a secure border,” said the statement.
A House staffer said the McCaul’s bill doesn’t require a major fence because of advocacy by Heritage and Grover Norquist’s Americans for Tax Reform.
Dan Holler, communications director for Heritage Action for America, told The Daily Caller that Heritage did not recommend against fencing.
ATR has joined with wealthy advocates — such as former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg — to call for increased use of foreign workers and residency for illegal immigrants.
Senate committee staffers declined to offer any reassurances that Senators would modify the bill to fund more fencing and to block Obama’s catch-and-release policy, prior to a Senate vote in a few weeks.
“We’re going to be looking at everything,” said a committee staffer. “We can’t give any detail beyond that.”
The Senate bill is co-sponsored by Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake, who co-sponsored the Senate’s 2013 immigration bill.
“We introduced the McCaul [House] bill [in the Senate] as is and plan to update and improve it as we study the issue through [House] briefings and hearings,” said the staffer, who works for the Senate’s homeland security committee. The committee is chaired by Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson.
The public strongly supports a border fence. An April 2013 poll by Rasmussen shows “that 57% of Likely U.S. Voters think the United States should continue building a border fence, while 29% disagree.” Support for the fence is much higher among the GOP-leaning voters that provided the votes for the GOP victory in November.
A 2006 law required the construction of 700 miles of double-layer fencing along the 2,000 mile border. However, Congress quietly modified the bill in 2008 to allow the construction of simple, ineffective fences in place of the required double-layer fencing.
Officials claim that just over 600 miles of the border now have obstructions, including barriers. But those barriers include lines of bollards to stop vehicles, plus single-layer “landing mat fencing” and only 36.5 miles of double-layer fencing.
The leaders’ bills call for the replacement of anti-pedestrian mat fences by anti-vehicle bollards.
The bollards will allow migrants to be driven up to the border, and then walked over to a pick-up vehicle on the U.S. side.
“Not later than 18 months after the date of the enactment of this Act, the Secretary of Homeland Security shall replace, at a minimum, each of the following: (A) Thirty-one miles of landing mat fencing with bollard style fencing in the Border Patrol’s San Diego sector. (B) Five miles of landing mat fencing with bollard style fencing in the Border Patrol’s El Centro sector. (C) Three miles of landing mat fencing with bollard style fencing in the Border Patrol’s Yuma sector. (D) Twenty-five miles of landing mat fencing with bollard style fencing in the Border Patrol’s Tucson sector. (E) Two miles of landing mat fencing with bollard style fencing in the Border Patrol’s El Paso sector,” says a section on page 12 of the House bill, HR 399.
Comment:

The news just keeps getting worse and worse.  Again I ask, what are the open borders people bitching about?  A border on paper is just the same as having a lot of money - on paper.  Both are worthless.  When you grant amnesty to illegals, refuse to deport new illegals, and basically leave the borders without any proper security, then we have open borders.  A law is useless if it is not enforced.

For those people who may believe open borders are the right thing, what about terrorism? Leave the borders open for illegals who are just looking for a better life, it is also open for terrorists who want to strike at America.  What if YOUR family becomes a victim of terrorism?  You'll be the first to complain about inadequate border security.  
You might say the chances of that happening to me are slim.  Maybe.  But it is still a possibility.  And what about other families?  Are we supposed to risk a terrorist attack in order to make it easier for "honest" foreign workers to get a better life?  I don't think so.
What about drug smugglers?  Open borders make their jobs a breeze.  Maybe you're pro-drug.  If you are, you should be working to legalize drugs, not make it easier for criminals to smuggle them into the country.  Drug smugglers are vicious, murderous criminals.  You shouldn't want to make their jobs easier even if you are pro-drug.  If you don't care how you get your drugs or from whom just as long as you get them, then you are degenerate scum and we have nothing more to say to each other.

Black Sheriff to Al Sharpton: 'Go Back Into the Gutter'

Thursday, 22 Jan 2015 06:15 PM
By Jason Devaney

Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke has a message for the Rev. Al Sharpton: "Go back into the gutter."



During an interview on "Fox & Friends" Thursday morning, Clarke, who has been making a name for himself as a conservative commentator in recent months, was discussing the police shooting in Ferguson, Mo. from last summer.

When asked to comment on Sharpton's remarks in the wake of the shooting that left an 18-year-old black man dead, Clarke was blunt.

"I don't expect anything intelligent to come out of the mouth of Al Sharpton," Clarke said. 


"The next intelligent thing that comes out of his mouth will be the first. Al Sharpton ought to just shut up and go back into the gutter that he came from."

The segment was centered on Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson, who will reportedly not face federal civil rights charges for shooting Brown. He was cleared of criminal charges in November.


Sharpton said over and over the shooting was race-based because Brown did not have a weapon on him. But the evidence, released by St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Robert P. McCulloch, showed Brown attacked Wilson several times, leaving the officer no choice but to use his gun.

Clarke also had harsh words for Attorney General Eric Holder, who traveled to Ferguson after riots and violent protests broke out in the St. Louis suburb. Holder vowed there would be a federal investigation into the shooting, even after the grand jury's decision in November that said Wilson acted in self defense — and even after Holder's options to charge the 28-year-old officer were limited. 

"Just take a look at the history here. This isn't the first time that he has done this sort of thing," Clarke said of Holder. "He sat up there for months just slandering law enforcement officers all across the nation. He's the one in Ferguson, Mo. that brought up the racial profiling term. That we were gonna end racial profiling once and for all. He invoked that into this thing, when that was never any part of what happened in the tragedy between officer Darren Wilson and Mike Brown.

Comment:

I just wanted to point out that not all Blacks think they should be given a free pass.  Not all of them think all their problems are Whitey's fault either.

Sheriff Clarke, just like Sheriff Arpaio is a systemite, but at least he's one Black that doesn't play the race card every chance he gets.  Quite the opposite.  Attorney General Holder is constantly playing the race card and Clarke has been very critical of him.

However I still think things would be better without all this forced integration.  Just look at the state of things.  The race problem is as bad as it ever was.

On the other hand, segregation is not the solution either.  "Separate but Equal" is a fraud. Wherever there is segregation, whoever is in the minority is going to get the shaft and that's a fact.  In a few years, that mean WHITES will be getting the shaft.  

The better solution is separation - geographical separation.  Each race should be free to live their way in their own lands.  Each race should have the right to self-determination - including Whites.

If I could have my own way, it would be like Commander Rockwell said, "Africa for Blacks, America for Whites".  That also means Asia for Asians, and Latin America for Latinos.  As for the Native Americans, well they were here first.  There's no place to send them.  I don't believe they should be locked up on reservations, but they should have their own "areas" where they can live their own way with their own customs and traditions.

Integration and multiculturalism is a dismal failure.  When are the liberals going to wake up and smell the coffee?  However, everyone hates to admit when they are wrong.  In this respect liberals are no different than anyone else.  We all hate to admit when we are wrong.

Leaked Documents Show Most Illegals Now Immune to Arrest

Monday, 12 Jan 2015 03:43 PM
By James 
New Obama administration rules make the vast majority of illegal immigrants immune to arrest and relegate border patrol agents to the role of social workers, according to Breitbart Texas. 
A border agent leaked the documents to the conservative web site, explaining that the Department of Homeland Security has decided that the majority of immigrants crossing U.S. borders illegally cannot be detained or deported without approval from top officials in Washington.


The documents do not specifically order agents to let illegal immigrants pass freely into the United States, the source said. But the rules “clearly” say “don’t waste your time because the alien will not be put into detention, sent back or deported,” he said.


“There is literally no reason to arrest an illegal alien because they are specifically telling Border Patrol there will be no consequence for the illegal alien. It is a waste of time and resources to arrest someone who is off limits for detainment or deportation and the documents make that fact clear,” the source added.

“Border Patrol agents are now being trained to be social workers, not law enforcement.”

The training documents create three categories of illegal immigrants. “Priority one” includes those who “pose a threat to national security, border security or public safety.” “Priority two” would comprise those guilty of misdemeanors or “new immigration” violations. “Priority three” are simply described as “other immigration violators.”

The new rules follow a Nov. 20 directive from Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson, who ordered agents to arrest only immigrants they see crossing the border or those who are wanted criminals or convicted felons.

“This is not how it was before,” the source told Breitbart. “Border Patrol used to arrest, process, and turn the illegal alien over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement and the courts. Under this new program, the majority of illegal aliens will be released directly from the Border Patrol with no appointments or expectation that they ever have to show up for a hearing.”

Comment:

Okay, what the hell are these open border people complaining about?  It's obvious that our borders are ALREADY open!

Every year things get worse.  How much worse will it have to get before enough people are willing to get off their asses and DO something?

I'm very well aware that most people won't lift a finger until a bad situation affects them directly. Indeed, many won't act until things actually hit rock bottom.  The problem with that is by then it's usually too late.  Well, just look at what's going on around you.  What's it going to take for you to get involved?

If and when you decide you're willing to start making sacrifices for your Folk, the ANP is the right place.  We don't wear Halloween costumes.  We don't parade about like a bunch of stupid twits. We're just normal, everyday people with families, jobs (if we're lucky), and a deep sense of concern for the welfare and future of our race.  Do you have what it takes to be one of us?  Your call.

Hail Victory!

Article On The ANP

While I was surfing the net, I stumbled across the following article.  It was written about 11 months ago.  At the time I remember Chairman Suhayda mentioning it to me, but I never actually saw it.  

At the time I assumed it would be just another Jews Media hatchet job like all the other articles.  I was somewhat surprised at the article when I read it.  It in no way supports us, but it is far from a hatchet job.  

I checked on who wrote this and it was no surprise that they treated us more fairly than all the other Jews Agencies.  This agency is called Mint Press News.  I checked on them and their staff.  There are no Jews there.  In fact, the owner is actually an Muslim Arab, and so are a few of their reporters.  The rest seem to be Aryans.  There are two contributors whose last names possibly could be Jewish, but just because a person's name ends with "sky" doesn't make them Jews.  There are plenty of non-Jewish Russians whose names end with "sky".  And since the publisher is an Muslim Arab I doubt the two I'm discussing are Jews.

The rest of the staff are Aryans.  No non-Whites other than as I mentioned a couple of Arabs who are obviously Muslims - judging by the clothing they wore in their pictures. 

Ninety percent of the news media is Jewish controlled.  Mint seems to be one of the ten percent that is free of Jew control.  That doesn't mean we can trust them.  It just means they are not Jew controlled.  But it also means we might get a slightly fairer shake from them than from say Tribune News which is completely Jew controlled.

I think Chairman Suhayda did the right thing by not granting them an interview.  Considering how we've been treated by the press in the past, how can we trust any of them to be fair with us?

Mint Press News calls themselves a "non-partisan" news service.  In other words, they claim to be impartial.  Judge for yourself.

The Rebirth Of American Nazism

MintPress takes a look at Nazis in America, asking, “Who are they?” and “What do they want?”

By Katie Rucke

Few words in the English language evoke as much of an emotional reaction as the term “Nazi,” or the image of a swastika. Despite the negative connotations and association with some of the most blatant acts of human rights violations committed in the 20th Century, those who identify with the political party Adolf Hitler brought to the forefront during World War II are still alive and well, even in the United States.

The U.S. version of the Nazi party, known as the American Nazi Party, was formed in 1959 by U.S. Navy Commander George Lincoln Rockwell, who led the party until he was shot and killed in 1967 by a sniper in Virginia.

The ANP is now led by Rocky J. Suhayda, who joined the party in 1967, at the age of 16. It is based out of Detroit, believed to be Suhayda’s hometown.

Americans who identify as a Neo-Nazi or as a post-WWII member of the National Socialist party, say they only use the politically-charged term “Nazi” to describe themselves because most Americans do not understand what a National Socialist is and would likely confuse the term with “some kind of Marxist ideology.”

While most Americans believe the goal for all Nazis is to eradicate all non-Aryans, or anyone who is not 100 percent of complete white-European descent, the ANP says its primary goal is to attain the Fourteen Words: “We must secure the existence of our people and a future for White children.”

According to the American Nazi Party’s website, National Socialists “are certainly NOT ‘supremacists,’ rather we are SEPERATISTS (sic) – we believe that RACIAL SEPERATION (sic) is best for all concerned. White and non-White alike.”

In other words, “IF there could be ONE ALL-WHITE nation on planet earth, where we Racialists could happily live – AWAY – from ‘others,’ whom we would prefer not to co-exist beside…, we would move there,” the group says.

ANP’s second goal “is to achieve Social Justice for the White Working Class,” adding that it is not one of their goals to “‘exterminate’ each and every jewish person in existence.

“What we ARE out to destroy – is, the JEWISH MONIED ‘ELITES’ POWERHOLD in America, where for example ISRAEL’S best interests are put BEFORE the best interests of America and its citizens,” ANP’s website says.

“The ‘small jew,’ who works for a living like everyone else, and has no ‘say’ over the current situation, than you or I – has nothing to fear from National Socialism. Neither does ANY non-Aryan. (National Socialism) stands FOR separate, self-determination and autonomy for ALL the peoples of the world. Only those who would do harm to the Aryan Folk, are our enemies.”

MintPress asked Suhayda if he or any other member of the ANP was available for an interview to discuss the party’s goals and recruiting efforts, as well as address any misconceptions. He initially agreed to answer our questions instead of directing us to the party’s website, which is how the organization usually handles media requests. However, in the end, Suhayda opted not to respond to our questions, saying the ANP doesn’t want attention from “the enemy’s media.”

Though there is, technically, more than one Neo-Nazi group in the United States, with the largest group being the National Socialist Movement, the ANP does not consider the NSM to be a National Socialist group, and instead refers to the group as the National Satanist Movement, as Suhayda says the NSM’s founder was a devil-worshipper.

The NSM’s 40-year-old leader Jeff Schoep has also been criticized by the ANP and other white-power organizations because the Minnesota native, who now lives in Detroit, reportedly married a woman of Arab descent, and has a daughter who is half-black from a previous marriage.

Understanding the attraction to the Nazi Party

To understand what may attract Americans to join the ANP, MintPress spoke to Professor David Steele from the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, Minn. Steele, who teaches a class on the history of Nazi Germany, said that some people are attracted to the movement simply to shock others, while others are genuinely enticed by part or all of the movement.

“People who are socially or economically alienated from mainstream society are especially prone to turning towards extremist parties on both ends of the spectrum,” Steele said. “In the case of National Socialism, it tends to appeal to people who are frightened of modern economic, social, or political trends and see the movement as a bulwark against what they see as the decline of traditional society.

“In the case of Germany in the 1920s and 1930s, many people did not have faith in the institutions (and messiness) of democracy or the economic stability of the New Germany and feared modern art and music, capitalism, speakeasies, Communism, and other modern challenges to what they perceived as the traditional order.

“In our contemporary world, the rise of gay rights, civil rights, the increasingly prominent role played by people of color in positions of influence, the evolution [Doesn't he mean "disintegration"? - Dan] of the American family, and other such developments are all perceived as a threat to people who are educationally, socially, or economically on the margins of our society,” Steele said. “As a result, it is comforting to band together, lash out at the frightening modern world, and sharply define ‘us’ against ‘them,’ which brings into the mix the acute racism of National Socialists.

“We saw that in Nazi Germany as they defined Jews and the Roma as the ‘other,’ and we see it in America as they define African-Americans, Hispanics, gays, and others as the ‘other.’ It is for these reasons that National Socialism seems to become more prominent at times of great economic and social change as we are witnessing now.

“In Europe, we are seeing the rise of neo-Nazi parties in response to the influx of foreign peoples made possible by the European Union – people who are perceived as racially or ethnically inferior and who are taking scarce jobs and apartments from the traditional majority population.”

Regardless of whether there is a justified reason for any person to want to join the ANP or NSM, Heidi Budaj, regional director of the Anti-Defamation League, said the group’s existence is  “wrong on every level.”

“First of all,” Budaj said, “America is based on immigrants. This is a country of immigrants. (Neo-Nazi groups) would like other races to go away….Many of them believe that American citizenship should only be afforded to white people — white people excluding homosexuals non-Christians.”

Budaj also pointed out the dangers in Nazi-like hate speech. “There are actually very few steps between embracing that ideology, acting on that ideology, turning to violence with that ideology… It can actually in the end lead to genocide.”

Nazi ideology

But the ANP maintains that it has “many other issues of concern” besides living in a nation that solely consists of white people, including protecting the environment, creating a national health care system and a free education system.

During an ANP radio program on Feb. 14, Suhayda said he assumes most of the men and women who have joined the ANP chose to do so because they are not happy with the current state of America. “If that is the case,” he said, “we have to ask ourselves, what can we do to make positive change.”

“(National Socialists) believe that the STATE should be in SERVICE to the PEOPLE – not, as it is unfortunately done today – where the people are nothing more than WAGE-SLAVES, TAX-COWS, and CANNON-FODDAR (sic) to that 3 percent of the population that control 85 percent of America’s wealth,” the group said.

“This current, corrupt Judeo-Capitalist system is nothing more than a plutocracy of the rich…”

The ANP also describes itself as an advocate of free speech, but Suhayda wrote on the website that the ANP’s version of free speech is limited.

“As an example, in a (National Socialist) America, we would no longer allow naked, gyrating homosexuals to assault the White populace through disgusting ‘Gay Parades’ – where they flaunt and perform degeneracy, and lack of decency – simply because they can ‘get away with it,’” he said.

“Nor would a (National Socialist) America allow the proliferation of ‘pornography’ as ‘art’ and/or ‘entertainment,’ such as this present day kosher society does. Nor would (National Socialists) allow degenerate ideas like race-mixing to be promoted in an Aryan society.”

However, he says, it would be fine for someone to publicly declare that “space aliens are coming to probe them.”

Influencing politics

In a radio program, Suhayda and two other unnamed members of the ANP said it’s a “common misconception National Socialism is just about aryanism,” before explaining that just like other political parties, the ANP cannot run a government based on a single issue — the party needs to address “all issues a culture or society faces.”

Hoping to slowly implement the ANP platform into the U.S. government and American way of life, Suhayda encouraged ANP members to get involved in politics on a local level, and encouraged members to run for local city council and even positions such as water district commissioner.

“Running for local office is easy,” Suhayda said, explaining that this is because many Americans shy away from hard work. He did, however, encourage members not to disclose they were a member of the ANP during election season.

The goal of obtaining lower level political positions, according to the ANP, is to build a base of supporters, and then run for office on a state and eventually federal level. On its website, the ANP says it has chosen to run for office instead of holding “senseless ‘demonstrations’” because the American public has been influenced by the media and wealthy to believe the group does nothing to benefit Americans.

Sheriff Arpaio will face contempt charges

Megan Cassidy, The Republic | azcentral.com

After months of fiery hearings, legal filings and stern warnings, a federal judge presiding over a racial-profiling case has announced he will take legal action against the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office.

Sheriff Joe Arpaio will face a civil contempt hearing in federal court this spring.

U.S. District Judge G. Murray Snow announced during a Thursday telephone conference that he will oversee a civil contempt of court proceeding against the six-term Maricopa County sheriff during a four-day mini trial in April.

Snow has repeatedly threatened to level criminal- or civil-contempt proceedings against the office, and the judge spent the past week reviewing pleadings in which attorneys for Arpaio tried to persuade Snow not to take the monumental step.

The trial is set to take place April 21-24.

The Maricopa County Sheriff's Office had no comment on the announcement.

Snow, whose measured judicial approach had created calm in the courtroom, was clearly fed up with the agency in the last few hearings, charging that Arpaio and others had repeatedly defied his orders.

Snow last month said he would cite the agency for civil contempt, or if he deemed the measure insufficient, refer the agency to the U.S. Attorney's Office for criminal-contempt prosecution unless Arpaio's attorneys could convince him otherwise.

Plaintiffs attorney Dan Pochoda, legal director for the American Civil Liberties Union of Arizona, said the plaintiffs were pleased with Snow's announcement that civil-contempt proceedings should be initiated.

"He did not waste time clearing his calendar and making sure all attorneys were available for the required evidentiary hearing," Pochoda said. "We believe that this is the proper course."

Snow has cited various areas of concern that signal that Arpaio and his officials had flouted his orders:

The office's failure to disclose information that plaintiffs had requested prior to trial, including all information possessed by the Sheriff's Office regarding traffic stops, which may have broadened the scope of the court's actions.

Top officials' failure to relay the court's directives to rank-and-file deputies to discontinue stopping and detaining anyone solely on suspicion of being in the country illegally, and Arpaio's public statements that he would continue to turn suspects over to immigration authorities.

A traffic stop, months after Snow's orders, by now-former Deputy Ramon "Charley" Armendariz that violated the court's edicts.

The agency's failure to follow the court's required procedures in recovering potential body-camera recordings, and other investigations surrounding Armendariz.

Snow has indicated that he is unsure whether the violations warrant criminal- or civil-contempt proceedings, and has enlisted arguments from both sides of counsel.

A finding of civil contempt would likely amount to fines for the office, perhaps compensating the individuals whose rights were violated after the judge issued his initial order. Criminal contempt is more punitive, and could result in harsher monetary penalties or even jail time.

Snow had advised Arpaio and his top aides to retain criminal-defense attorneys in case he refers for prosecution.

In a written statement filed earlier this month, Arpaio's attorneys apologized for general errors while maintaining that any missteps were unintentional.

"Sheriff Arpaio readily concedes that mistakes have been made in the communication and, in some instances, implementation of Court Orders," the statement reads. "He genuinely regrets those mistakes, and is committed to working with the Court Monitor to carry out existing directives and minimize further mistakes."

The latest legal hurdle stems from a 2007 class-action civil-rights case that alleged the Sheriff's Office's immigration sweeps amounted to discriminatory policing against Latinos. Snow agreed and imposed an operational overhaul that would prevent the behavior in the future.

But Snow has become increasingly agitated over the past year as information surfaced, which he perceived as resistance by agency officials and outright defiance from their outspoken leader.

Point by point, Arpaio's attorneys countered the judge's assertions in their filing earlier this month. They stressed that a jury would have to find the sheriff "willfully disobeyed" the judge's orders to find him in contempt, which, they said, was not the case.

For one, Arpaio could not be solely responsible for distributing information about the court's order, they said, quoting testimony stating that a former deputy chief was primarily the point of contact for such matters.

Attorneys also said Arpaio did not intend to defy the judge when speaking about his ongoing ability to detain immigrants for Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

And finally, they said, Arpaio could not be accountable for the actions of a "rogue" former deputy who had secretly recorded traffic stops and stashed IDs, driver's licenses and license plates in his home.

Comment:

I'm kind of looking forward to April this year.  It will be interesting to see how this turns out.

If Arpaio is let off the hook Scot free, it will confirm my belief that Arpaio is just a fake White Knight pressure valve.  However, if he's cited for criminal contempt and punished, then perhaps I was wrong. Not too many phony systemites would be willing to go to jail to maintain the illusion of being a "man of the people".  Only someone who is sincere (even if he still misguidedly believes in the system) would go that far.

As we discussed on ANP Talkshoe last Saturday, how many real systemites ever see one day of jail? The answer is none.  A few receive token slaps on the wrist with censure and a fine.  Nixon lost his job.  But jail?  Not bloody likely - unless Arpaio is for real and is fighting the immigrant-loving federal government.

Well, April isn't too far off, so we won't have long to wait.  Hopefully by then we'll know whether Arpaio is a fake White Knight or a real one.

Dan 88!
