Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, flanked by Chuck Norris, Minutemen founder Jim Gilchrist and U.S. Republican Rep. Duncan Hunter of California, stood beneath Laredo’s railroad bridge near the riverbank Saturday morning advocating stronger border security, including constructing a border fence, having more law enforcement and eliminating carrizo.”I come away from this with a better understanding of this,” Huckabee said after touring Border Patrol facilities and later hiking to the edge of the Rio Grande to get a personal view of the terrain.

As Huckabee addressed a small crowd of media and several local members of the Republican Party, including District VI Councilman Gene Belmares, he repeatedly stressed that the U.S. government needs to have stricter immigration laws to be aware of who enters the country.

“If they’re people with a criminal background or they’re people who happen to have a suitcase with a dirty bomb, I’d kind of like to know that before they walk through the border,” Huckabee said.

Standard Speaker

U.S. Rep. Paul Kanjorski told a political news Web site that Hazleton Mayor Lou Barletta is using immigration the way former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke has used civil rights legislation.

Kanjorski?s comments appeared in a story posted Thursday on Politico.com. Barletta demanded the congressman apologize.
?What David Duke was to civil rights, my opponent has done that with immigration,? Kanjorski, D-11, told Web site reporter Josh Kraushaar. ?He?s used that issue the same way Duke used the civil rights issue.?

Elsewhere, Kanjorski said he doesn?t believe illegal immigration is not as critical as other issues facing the nation.

RESEDA, Calif. - When federal immigration officers visited over three days last October looking for an illegal Salvadoran immigrant, a neighborhood watch kicked into action each time.

Dozens of immigrants, legal and illegal, phoned one another, warning of a raid.

“I called my sister in the building next door and another sister in this building,” said Maria, who said she is an illegal immigrant from Mexico and has two children who are U.S.-born citizens. She asked that her full name not be used. “They came and knocked on doors, but no one answered.”

Angelita Pascacio, an organizer of Madres Contra Redadas (Mothers Against Raids) who has since moved from the 16-unit apartment building, described the surveillance by immigrants as clumsy at first, but effective. “Thanks to our being organized, they didn’t take anyone away,” she said.

As the federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency beefs up home-visiting teams seeking illegal immigrants, doubling arrests in each of the past two years, migrants and advocates are initiating countermeasures to make legal and illegal immigrants aware of tactics such as not answering their door or remaining silent.

This is from a website called Old Thinker News.

By Daniel Taylor

Advancing globalization and trends to world governance have become regular headlines throughout the world. As these trends continue, resistance to losses of sovereignty and globalization are increasing. This is coming as little surprise to the planners who have foreseen the rise of world government, and actively participated in its formation.

Zbigniew Brzezinski admitted in his book, Between Two Ages: America’s Role in the Technetronic Era, that the formation of the world system would require “sacrifices” on part of Americans that will harm America’s favorable position in the world. Brzezinski states,

“The nation-state is gradually yielding its sovereignty… In the economic-technological field, some international cooperation has already been achieved, but further progress will require greater American sacrifices. More intensive efforts to shape a new world monetary structure will have to be undertaken, with some consequent risk to the present relatively favorable American position.”

There is little doubt that Brzezinski knew exactly what kind of response this action would evoke from patriotic Americans. At the moment we are witnessing America’s favorable economic position being drastically eroded as the dollar continues its freefall, with former Federal Reserve chairman Alan Greenspan’s endorsement.

The great dream of world governance comes at a price. Ancient ideas of national sovereignty have no place in the modern era. Sacrifices must be made.

What reactions do the global planners expect?

James P. Muldoon, Jr., Senior Fellow of the Center for Global Change and Governance at Rutgers University, writes in The Architecture of Global Governance that the transition to the international system will emerge out of ‘chaos’,

“For some, the disarray of traditional relationships in international affairs indicates a dangerous deterioration of the international order and portends collapse of the system into chaos or anarchy. Others consider the turbulence of the 1990s as part of the process of evolution, an inevitable consequence of the transformation of the international system into a global system. In some respects, both are right. The international order has indeed deteriorated into ‘disorder’ in large measure, but there is growing evidence that a global system is emerging out of this ‘chaos.’”

H.G. Wells, a strong proponent of a planned world state, wrote in The New World Order in 1940,

“Countless people, from maharajas to millionaires from pukka sahibs to petty ladies, will hate the new world order, be rendered unhappy by frustration of their passions and ambitions through its advent and will die protesting against it. When we attempt to estimate its promise we have to bear in mind the distress of a generation or so of malcontents, many of them quite gallant and graceful-looking people.”

H.G. Wells again writes in The Open Conspiracy, an earlier book written in 1928,

“The establishment of the world community will surely exact a price - and who can tell what that price may be? - in toil, suffering, and blood.”

While speaking at a conference hosted by AKbank in Istanbul Turkey on May 31, 2007, just prior to the scheduled Bilderberg meeting, Henry Kissinger gave a speech in which he stated,

“What we in America call terrorists are really groups of people that reject the international system…”

Government trends analysts have taken into consideration the expanding world system and have based predictions on its impact on social, political, and economic conditions. A December 2000 CIA report titled “Global Trends 2015″ outlines possible outcomes of globalization and worldwide integration. The report states,

“Scenario Two: Pernicious Globalization Global elites thrive, but the majority of the world?s population fails to benefit from globalization… migration becomes a major source of interstate tension… Internal conflicts increase, fueled by frustrated expectations, inequities, and heightened communal tensions…”

A report released from the U.K. Ministry of Defense, “DCDC Global Strategic Trends Programme 2007-2036″, states that globalization and the effective erasing of borders in an international system will cause upheaval.

“Economic globalization and indiscriminate migration may lead to levels of international integration that effectively bring interstate warfare to an end; however, it will also result in communities of interest at every level of society that transcend national boundaries and could resort to the use of violence.”

It is not my position to advocate violent actions as a solution, as this would only worsen our situation. What can be seen from the above statements is that violence and turmoil is expected by globalist planners and analysts during the “transition” period that will carry us into the New World Order.

Palm Beach Post

WEST PALM BEACH ? Was the death of a popular middle school principal an accident or was it vehicular homicide?

An accident, a jury has now decided.

Jurors returned not-guilty verdicts this afternoon in the case against Cesar Mejia, a 32-year-old driver who prosecutors say blew through a red light striking the vehicle of Western Pines Middle School principal Margaret Campbell, killing her.

Mejia’s attorney, Assistant Public Defender Shawnee Lawrence, had argued before jurors that Mejia was driving the speed limit and in no way, shape or form wanted to run a red ight and kill another human being.

“Tragic? Yes. Sad? Definitely. Homicide? No, no,” Lawrence said.

Lawrence had acknowledged to jurors that Mejia, an undocumented alien from Mexico, had no valid drivers license in the United States. Mejia also was charged with driving without a valid license causing death.

Jurors acquitted him of both charges.

At Mejia’s two-day trial, traffic homicide prosecutor Ellen Roberts argued that he was more than 400 feet away from the light at Bee Line Highway and Seminole Pratt Whitney Road ? a football field and a third ?when it changed to yellow.

“He saw that light start to change… that’s when he made the decision he was not gonna stop,” Roberts said in closing statements this morning. “This crash on March 8, 2006 didn’t have to happen. That’s all there is to it.”

The 66-33 vote came after two hours of heated debate on the House floor. The Senate approved a similar bill by a 37-11 vote in January.

The legislation — which can revoke an employer’s business license for repeatedly hiring illegal immigrants — is likely headed to a House-Senate conference committee, where differences between the bills would be worked out.

Earlier Thursday, Gov. Mitch Daniels declined to commit his support until he saw the final bill.

‘It depends entirely on what that bill says and whether it’s well put together and fairly balanced,’ Daniels said. ‘I think I just really want to wait and see what conclusions they reach before I come to any of my own.’

Supporters said the bill was necessary because illegal immigrants are taking jobs away from legal residents and costing state taxpayers money for education, law enforcement and incarceration.

Democrats may soon be taking a tougher public position on immigration, according to a confidential study put together by key think tanks close to the party leadership.

The study urges Democrats to adopt more rigid rhetoric when discussing immigration by encouraging office-holders to emphasize ‘requiring immigrants to become legal’ rather than stressing border enforcement and the opening of a path to legalization for the undocumented already here.

Implicit in the report is the notion that Democrats can win wider public support for immigration reform by framing the issue in harsher-sound verbiage and, perhaps, policy.

Titled ‘Winning The Immigration Debate,’ the study was put together by the Coalition for Comprehensive Immigration Reform and the Center for American Progress. Its findings, which have been sent to Capitol Hill and have been part of briefing sessions in both the House and the Senate, are based off of polling conducted by Peter Hart Research Associates.

Taken as a whole, the report presents a new prism through which the Democrats should approach the immigration debate. ‘It is unacceptable to have 12 million people in our country who are outside the system,’ it reads. ‘We must require illegal immigrants to become legal, and reform the laws so this can happen.’

Dallas News

Washington, DC — The Department of Homeland Security’s role in policing the employment status of American workers would be sharply reduced under a bill filed Thursday by Rep. Sam Johnson of Plano.

Mr. Johnson’s bill calls for some of the work to be outsourced to contractors — a new cottage industry of people who would check the identities of workers to prevent identity theft.

Employers could opt into the program, which would require workers to visit federal contractors who would investigate their backgrounds and use biometric data to confirm their identities.

‘We offer a new way forward for this Congress to discourage unauthorized workers from entering this country illegally to seek work,’ said Mr. Johnson, a Republican.

The proposal would require electronic verification for work eligibility and eliminate the federal government’s voluntary, Internet-based system.

The homeland security department administers that program, called E-Verify, and has called for all federal contractors to use it.

Errors cited

Mr. Johnson said E-Verify can’t account for whether an employee is using a stolen identity. The DHS has been expanding the system but is fighting a lawsuit with Illinois since that state tried to forbid its employers from participating.

‘Enforcement is based upon a failed system that is prone to both error and fraud that results in an illegal immigrant population that has swelled … to over 12 million,’ Mr. Johnson said.

Laura Keehner, a DHS spokeswoman, said E-Verify’s error rate is actually ‘a fraction of 1 percent.’ The program is adding about 1,000 new employers every week, she said.

‘The assertion that it doesn’t work or has holes in it couldn’t be further from the truth,’ she said.

Under Mr. Johnson’s proposal, DHS would no longer have a role in checking the employment status of American citizens, whose records would be verified against a database administered by the Social Security Administration.

Mr. Johnson said he objects to a law-enforcement agency being able to monitor the work history of Americans. Noncitizens would be subject to a check by Homeland Security.

La Opinion

HOUSTON, Texas.? Who has the right to use the “Si se puede”?

It is a famous phrase of fight, created by the leadership of the Union of Peasants in the sixties and since then has been utilized by numerous politicians and activist, mainly Latin.

Huerta thinks that Obama should not use the “Si se puede”.

“He hasn’t joined with the Latin Americans and now he wants that community to vote for him, and is using that phrase. I was native of that phrase and this represents many things, the sacrifice of the peasants, the martyrs that we had in our union (of peasants), people struck and imprisoned”, Huerta said.

Huerta is uncomfortable with Obama, a senator of Illinois, because he “never went to visit to Elvira Arellano when she was in sanctuary”, he never helped in the liberation of a Mexican youth, that was accused unjustly of homicide in El Paso.

In general, Huerta said, Obama, has not been there in the fights of for immigrants.
