Petition for Immigration Law Enforcement

Numbers USA is organizing a petition drive to demonstrate our will to see current immigration laws enforced. To date, 11,491 people have signed their petition, which states:

Petition to President: It is not ‘UN-AMERICAN’ to open jobs for jobless Americans through immigration enforcement

At a San Francisco rally against immigration laws, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi suggested that it is un-American to use types of enforcement to drive illegal aliens out of U.S. jobs. She has also called for an end to ICE’s worksite operations. Coming from one of the nation’s highest ranking public officials, this is very disturbing. The small amount of worksite enforcement over the last 18 months has proven itself especially effective in providing jobs for unemployed Americans, including by frightening non-targeted businesses into hiring only legal workers.

We call on you to affirm that a primary purpose of immigration laws is to protect American workers — particularly our most vulnerable citizens. And we urge you to re-state your oath to carry out these laws of our country to your fullest ability. Please show your commitment to putting especially low-skill American workers back on the job by giving your full support to ICE agents and adopting regulations requiring all federal contractors to use E-Verify.

I have signed the petition. I urge my fellow citizens to sign it and to join Numbers USA and actively express their desire to support legal immigration. Given the current balance of political power, the fence won’t be built, many more illegal aliens will join the millions already here, accompanied by terrorists crossing the open border and they will be given citizenship and become a permanent part of the Democrat’s voting block. That outcome can only be prevented if we apply intense political pressure. I view this petition as a good start.

The Give Act Will Take Our Liberty!

The GIVE Act of ’09 is available as a pdf file. The following text was found on pg. 76 of the 303 page .pdf: [Emphasis added.]

SEC. 6103. ESTABLISHMENT.
There is established in the legislative branch a commission to be known as the
‘‘Congressional Commission on Civic Service’’ (in this title referred to as the ‘‘Commission’’).
SEC. 6104. DUTIES.

(b) SPECIFIC TOPICS.—In carrying out its general purpose under subsection (a), the
Commission shall address and analyze the following specific topics:

(5) The effect on the Nation, on those who serve, and on the families of those
who serve, if all individuals in the United States were expected to perform national
service or were required to perform a certain amount of national service.
(6) Whether a workable, fair, and reasonable mandatory service requirement
for all able young people could be developed, and how such a requirement could
be implemented in a manner that would strengthen the social fabric of the Nation
and overcome civic challenges by bringing together people from diverse economic,
ethnic, and educational backgrounds

Section 6104, sub section (b), paragraphs 5 & 6 should alert anyone possessing a modicum of common sense to the real purpose of this legislation: creation of the Hitler Obama Youth Corps. I find that to be absolutely unacceptable! I have endorsed a petition calling upon the Senate to reject the Give Act. I urge you to join the signers of that petition by clicking this link: Sign Petition to the Senate NOW!

The bill was railroaded through the House in a hurry, and will likely pass through the Senate like a whirlwind. Please act now to decelerate its progress so that it can be examined in the light of reason and given the rejection it so richly deserves I will use the facilities of http://www.congress.org to send emails to my Senators, urging them to vote against the GIVE Act. I will include a link to this blog post in that email.

Thanks to Faultline USA. for alerting me to this vital issue.

US Troops To Be Subject To The ICC

by Findalis


Hat tip to Crusader Rabbit

This is just another example of how far President Barack Hussein Obama will go to destroy the United States and turn us into a Third World Nation.

They are feeling good just now at The Hague, as the judges and pen-pushers of the International Criminal Court (ICC) adjourn to smart restaurants to celebrate the latest gesture-politics flexing of their muscles by issuing an arrest warrant for Omar al Bashir, the President of Sudan. They are feeling less good in Darfur, from which 10 international aid agencies were expelled in retaliation within four hours of the ICC initiative, cutting food supplies and closing clinics. One man’s ego trip is another man’s starvation.

But the people who should be feeling really nervous about this development are the citizens of the United States and more especially their armed forces. The signs are that the grandstanding Barack Obama is preparing to subject the United States to the jurisdiction of the ICC. In May, 2002 President Bush withdrew the United States from the Rome Statute which established the ICC. With America heading into global conflict, he had no wish to see US troops arraigned for alleged war crimes before a kangaroo court.

That was a wise decision and probably required in terms of the US Constitution. Already, however, the Obama administration is sending out very different messages. America helped defeat a proposal that the warrant for Bashir should be suspended for 12 months – which would have been a welcome respite for the soup kitchens of Darfur. This is a policy change of considerable significance.

Nor is it the only straw in the wind. Last month US Ambassador Susan Rice, in a closed meeting of the Security Council, supported the ICC, saying it “looks to become an important and credible instrument for trying to hold accountable the senior leadership responsible for atrocities committed in the Congo, Uganda and Darfur”. A week later Ben Chang, spokesman for National Security Advisor General James Jones, took a similar line, telling the Washington Times: “We support the ICC in its pursuit of those who’ve perpetrated war crimes.”

The next logical step is for the United States to sign up to the ICC. That would flatter Obama’s ego as the conscience of the world. It would also put US servicemen at the mercy of any American-hating opportunists who might choose to arraign them on trumped-up charges before an alien court whose judges are likely to be ill-disposed towards America too.

In a joint analysis by David Scheffer (who helped set up the ICC) and John Hutson (former US Navy Judge Advocate General), the authors wrote: “If the United States were to join the ICC, one would have to accept at least the theoretical possibility that American citizens (particularly political and military leaders) could be prosecuted before the ICC on charges of committing atrocity crimes.”

So, vengeful Democrats could facilitate the indictment of President George W Bush and all his senior commanders in Iraq. American troops on active service have been shown in polls to have little confidence in Barack Obama. His overtures to the ICC will hardly reverse that tendency.

My feeling is that a decision to do this will result in a lower moral amongst members of the US military. Every 2-bit dictator in the world (Chevez and Ahmadinejad come to mind very fast) will be filing suits against the US and its military for every imagined hurt to them. Can one imagine the chaos that will insue when this happens? Will it even be Consitutional? Would that even matter to Obama? Or his Attorney General, Eric Holder? Will the ICC force the US to adopt strict gun control laws? They can. They can do anything including changing the US Constitution to suit their purposes.

This a bad idea from a man who is suppose to be an expert on the US Constitution and its laws. That what Obama claimed to be when he ran for election. A Constitutional Scholar. Yet when pushed on the actual issues in the Constitution, he cannot remember a single thing about that document.

On January 20, 2009 Barack Hussein Obama took the following oath:

“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”

Would giving sovereignty of US courts to the ICC not violate that oath? In Obama’s eyes the answer is NO. In the eyes of every member of the US Armed Forces the answer would be YES. And to the Supreme Court of the United States? Who knows. That will depend on whether he can stack the Court in his favor.

This is a bad idea, and if this is brought to the Senate as a treaty, it must never be ratified.

Darfur

The name conjures up the horrors of horrors, GENOCIDE. A systematic slaughter of men, women and children.

Thousands have been murdered, more have been forced from the homes. And the slaughter continues.

It has been a year since the U.N. Security Council authorized the UNAMID peacekeeping force for Darfur and promised to deploy 17,000 additional troops to protect the people of Darfur.

In the last year, barely 2,000 additional troops have so far reached Darfur. This failure to act is simply unacceptable.

Meanwhile, the BBC uncovered concrete evidence that weapons from China – a permanent member of the Security Council – are being used in Darfur in violation of a U.N. arms embargo.

It has never been clearer that the member states of the U.N. Security Council need to muster the political will to deploy peacekeepers to Darfur.

During the recent US elections, Barack Obama promised “unstinting resolve” (his words not mine) to end the GENOCIDE in Darfur. It is time we hold his feet to the fire on this. This should be one promise that he made to the American people that he must keep.

Be a voice for Darfur and send him a postcard reminding him of his promise on Darfur. Demand that he address this issue on Day One of his administration.

Save Darfur Coalition’s Be A Voice For Darfur postcard campaign will keep this issue in front of Obama’s face.

We aim for no less than 1 million postcards to be emailed and snail-mailed to President-elect) Obama within his first 100 days in office. With your help, we can draw desperately-needed political attention to the ongoing genocide in Darfur.

Can we ask you to add your voice? It takes only moments – please sign the pledge. Most importantly, you can influence others to stand up and be a voice for Darfur. Simply spread the word through your personal networks.

Be part of the million, sign today. And spread the word.

Durban II: An Early test of Obama’s Mid-East Intentions


The 2001 UN World Conference against Racism, Racial Discrimination, Xenophobia and Related Intolerance in Durban quickly became a disgusting display of anti-Semitism and anti-Israel Propaganda. Much of the hatred took place in a six-day NGO Forum in a large cricket stadium attended by six thousand representatives of close to two thousand NGOs. It is there that the “Durban Strategy” was formulated, that is delegitimize the Jewish State via branding it as a racist entity. To his credit Then Secretary of State Colin Powell walked out of the conference.

Last month the United Nations released the draft statement for the follow-up conference scheduled for Geneva in April 2009. This conference is planned to be worse than the first one, It is an Anti-Jewish, Anti-America and Anti-Freedom HATE FEST. There are even sections which will restrict freedom of speech. Other nations have announced that they will not attend.

On Jan. 23, the Canadian foreign minister made the clear statement of principle that “Canada will not participate in the 2009 conference.” A week later, 27 senators sent a letter to Rice asking her to do the same. Having had no response, on Feb. 13 during a Senate hearing, Sen. Norm Coleman asked Rice point-blank, would she make the same statement and refuse to “provide credibility to this process by participating?” Rice answered: “No, we’ve not made that statement. … We have not tried to make a final decision on this.

The Secretary of State had decided to punt it to the NEXT administration.

The United States should show leadership and morality. President-elect Obama should announce immediately that we will NOT attend this hate fest. His decision to attend or not will be an early test of his true intentions regarding the Middle-East, as well as the appeasement of Islamo-fascism and anti-Semitism.

Read the rest here.

From Monkey in the Middle:

While European nations will attend, Canada and of course Israel will not be attending. The United States should be taking the lead in this, but will not. If history is any indication of what this kangaroo court will be like, then you can expect the UN aka Tower of Babel, to condemn Israel and Judaism. We can expect these purveyors of hatred to force the world into silence on Islam and to announce Islam as the world’s only true religion.

I also expect that Barack Hussein Obama, being true to his Muslim background, will not only have the US attending Durban II, but will lead the charge against Israel.

And that is his idea of Change. God help us!
