Minutemen Plan to Sue Caltrans
Fox 6
February 4, 2008

The American Civil Liberties Union in San Diego is going to bat for an anti-illegal immigration group as is battles Caltrans over the right to pick up garbage next to a North County immigration checkpoint, it was reported Saturday.

The ACLU says it will side with the San Diego Minutemen in the group’s fight to have the trash-pickup franchise and big green sign along Interstate 5 at the San Onofre immigration inspection station.

A federal lawsuit was filed Monday, and a spokesman for the Minutemen welcomed the ACLU as a potential legal ally.

“If people are surprised, they shouldn’t be,” said the ACLU’s David Blair-Loy in an interview with the San Diego Union-Tribune. “The ACLU defends the Constitution and the Bill of Rights for everyone.”

Caltrans has told the Minutemen that they will be relocated from the heavily-travelled section of Interstate 5 to a comparatively-obscure section of Route 52 near Santee.

Some Mexican-American groups had decried the assignment, and posting of a large sign thanking the Minutemen, next to the immigration stop.

The ACLU, however is listed on the Minutemen’s web site as as an “open borders agent and enemy.” The ACLU has been on opposite sides of the Minutemen in several legal battles.

This isn’t being talked about like Huckabee’s Chuck Norris or Obama’s Kennedy or McCain’s Crist endorsement yet there is good reason these groups endorse Ron Gary Wood
(Conservative Libertarian)

The mainstream media is filled with endorsements for political candidates this primary season leading up to Super Tuesday tomorrow. Somehow they’ve missed the fact Congressman Ron Paul of Texas picked up his 40th Anti-Illegal Immigration endorsement. The latest endorsement is by the group March for America.

According to Jonnie Crivelo, Leader/National Organizer for March for America, “A champion of American sovereignty, he believes in borders and our future as a nation state. He will end illegal immigration and birthright citizenship.” The group finished their announcement by urging people to join with them. “March for America is proud to endorse Ron Paul and we hope you’ll join us in that endorsement in 2008!”

Patriots for Ron Paul
is one of many websites listing all the groups and individuals committed to securing our borders that have endorsed Ron Paul. The website’s comments included the reason they endorse Ron Paul for President. “Numerous anti-illegal immigration groups and leaders in the American Patriot Movement have officially endorsed Congressman Ron Paul for President because of his tough, but fair approach to solving America’s illegal immigration crisis and other serious problems.”

Even as the major primary date is upon us many have not seen Dr. Paul’s 6-point plan for stopping illegal immigration. Many who have watched each of the televised debates may have heard him attempt to get his message out while being extremely limited on time during the events. There’s a reason so many who are passionate about this issue have selected Ron Paul as the candidate worthy of their endorsement.

In reading through the many different endorsements it becomes clear illegal immigration is not the only reason these groups have chosen Ron Paul as their candidate. There is also an appreciation for his stance for changing our foreign policy to one of non-intervention, restoring our monetary system, and focusing on ending the IRS and income taxation by dramatically cutting the wasteful spending by the Federal government. Crivello states, “Ron Paul is the only candidate for We the People.”

The McCain campaign continues to perpetuate its Big Lie in the run-up to Super Tuesday. And thanks to MSM enablers and open-borders Republicans rooting for a McCain win, voters are swallowing the Big Lie. The Big Lie is that McCain can be trusted on immigration and border security.

According to the WaPo/ABC News poll released this weekend, 47% of respondents said McCain was the candidate they trusted most on immigration; 22% said Romney; 10% chose Huckabee; and 5% went with Paul.

Santa Fe New Mexican

About 300 people crammed into the Jemez Room at Santa Fe Community College on Thursday to hear U.S. Sen. Edward Kennedy give a rousing speech on behalf of U.S. Sen. Barack Obama, who is competing in next week’s Democratic presidential caucus.

Kennedy’s talk frequently was interrupted by applause, several standing ovations and, at one point, a hearty shout of ‘Viva Kennedy’ from former Lt. Gov. Roberto Mondragon.

Immediately before his speech, as he walked into the room, Kennedy, D-Mass., immediately recognized former Gov. Jerry Apodaca, who was sitting in the front row. ‘Jerry, how are you?’ he said as he went to shake his hand. Earlier this week, Apodaca said he had decided to support Obama only after seeing Kennedy’s endorsement.

Obama supporters hope there are a lot more people like Apodaca in a state in which many see the Hispanic vote leaning toward Sen. Hillary Clinton.

They hope shouts of ‘Viva Kennedy’ turn into shouts of ‘Viva Obama.’

Ron Paul has signed the Numbers USA pledge
to oppose amnesty for illegal aliens and protect America?s borders. Here?s the text of the pledge:


I pledge to oppose amnesty or any other special path to citizenship for the millions of foreign nationals unlawfully present in the United States. As President, I will fully implement enforcement measures that, over time, will lead to the attrition of our illegal immigrant population. I also pledge to make security of our borders a top priority of my administration.

Numbers USA includes six points of understanding as to what the pledge means and what it entails:

1. The 12 million illegal aliens now here will have to go home.

2. They will not get any legal status while here that allows them to remain long-term.

3. Once in their home countries, they may apply for re-admittance to the U.S. as immigrants, visitors or temporary workers through normal channels.

4. But they will not receive any special privileges on the basis of their having been in the U.S. illegally, such as being put to the front of a line.

5. There will be no new categories or programs through which they may re-enter.

6. There will not be an expansion of green cards in any existing categories that will speed up their movement to the front of the line.

Governors of Massachusetts, Mitt Romney and William Weld.

The people that believe Mitt Romney is a Washington outsider are falling for a campaign ploy that has been used for a hundred years. Mitt Romney, as well as all the major candidates, have surrounded themselves with the same campaign handlers that have been involved in all the Presidential elections in recent memory.

They all have ties to George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George H. W. Bush, Ronald Reagan and Jimmy Carter. The other thing they all have in common is the Council on Foreign Relations.

All past Presidents and no doubt our next President, with the exception of Ron Paul, will pick their cabinet from the membership of this elitist group. The stated purpose of the CFR is “to bring about a New World Order through the manipulation of U.S. foreign policy and relations and through international economic interdependence.” These are people that believe in developing a world government in incremental steps. They believe in diluting national sovereignty by merging countries together into economic regions (the European Union, the North American Union).

I’d like to highlight just one individual to show you what I am talking about. His name is William Weld, he’s the former Governor of Massachusetts and also a high ranking member of the Council on Foreign Relations. As a CFR member, William Weld helped create policies leading to the integration of the United States, Canada, and Mexico.

William Weld is currently the co-chairman for Mitt Romney’s campaign in New York State. Weld has been very active in campaigning for Governor Romney and both Governors were known to travel together during the New Hampshire primaries.

William Weld resigned the governorship of Massachusetts after being appointed United States Ambassador to Mexico by President Bill Clinton. He was never confirmed by the United States Senate, however, and hence never served as Ambassador. This was due mainly to opposition from Senate Foreign Relations committee chairman Jesse Helms, who refused to hold talks on the nomination, effectively blocking it. Though both were Republicans and though that party held the majority in the chamber, Helms objected to Weld’s moderate stance on several social issues.

When George W. Bush was running against John Kerry, it was William Weld that helped Bush prepare for the debates.

William Weld co-chaired the Independent Task Force on North America for the Council on Foreign Relations. Here is the May 2005 report titled ?Building a North American Community.? It was created by the Council on Foreign Relations in association with the Canadian Council of Chief Executives and the Consejo Mexicano de Asuntos Internacionales.

George W. Bush has put the policies shaped by William Weld and the CFR into action by creating the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America.

The Council on Foreign Relations published a speech by Mitt Romney in their July/August ‘07 issue of Foreign Affairs, titled “Rising to a New Generation of Global Challenges.”

The CFR also has a web page devoted to Romney’s campaign issues. The CFR is one of the most powerful organizations on the planet. So it is unlikely that Mitt Romney will go his own way and secure our borders, end illegal immigration and stop the creation of the North American Union when he, like all past Presidents will fill his cabinet with members of this elite organization. The goal of these elitists is to create a world government and secure global monopolies for themselves. The reason our borders remain open is because these elitists want to abolish all borders!

So now you know why I won’t be voting for Romney or any of the other CFR frontrunner’s, McCain, Clinton, and Obama in the primary tomorrow.

I’ll be voting for Ron Paul.

– Brook Young
