  • BUSH TO EASE RULE LIMITING HIV-POSITIVE FOREIGN VISITORS

    San Francisco Chronicle ^ | Dec. 3, 2006 | Sabin Russell
    President Bush will ease a long-standing rule barring HIV-positive people from entering the United States without a special waiver, a ban long criticized by human rights groups. Because of the rule, organizers of the biannual International AIDS Conferences have not held a gathering in the United States since 1990, when San Francisco hosted the event. The White House chose Friday, World AIDS Day, to announce that Bush would issue an executive order allowing HIV-positive people to enter the United States on short-term tourist or business visas without having to seek special permission.
  • Should Presidents Be Allowed To Serve More Than 2 Terms?

    Bills introduced in Congress to repeal 8-year restriction of 22nd Amendment WASHINGTON – One thing is certain about the 2008 presidential election campaign that begins in one year: It won't involve George W. Bush as a candidate. But bipartisan legislation to repeal the 22nd Amendment restriction of two terms for U.S. presidents could change that certainty for future presidents. Two of the most passionate congressional advocates of such a move – Rep. Steny Hoyer, D-MD, and Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner, R-WI – have teamed up to sponsor a resolution that would represent the first step toward that change in the U.S....
  • CFR's Plan to Integrate the U.S., Mexico and Canada

    The Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) has just let the cat out of the bag about what's really behind our trade agreements and security partnerships with the other North American countries. A 59-page CFR document spells out a five-year plan for the "establishment by 2010 of a North American economic and security community" with a common "outer security perimeter.""Community" means integrating the United States with the corruption, socialism, poverty and population of Mexico and Canada. "Common perimeter" means wide-open U.S. borders between the U.S., Mexico and Canada. "Community" is sometimes called "space" but the CFR goal is clear: "a common...

    It is this reporter's opinion that the San Francisco Chronicle dropped a bombshell when it reported that the Pentagon wants to cut the pay of its 148,000 U.S. troops in Iraq whose jobs involve unimaginable risks, who contend with danger and threats upon their lives, not to mention guerilla style attacks, homesickness and 120 degree + heat. Unless Congress and the president take quick action when they return after the Labor Day weekend, our American GIs in Iraq and the 9,000 in Afghanistan will lose a pay increase (approved last April) of $75 a month in "imminent danger pay" and...
  • Dormant Memory Gene Possible in Politicians, Judges and Bureaucrats?

    Dormant memory gene possible in politicians, judges and bureaucrats? Lack of memory of oath of office, constitution, turns some into "guardians" rather than "servants" TRACKSIDE (c) by John D'Aloia Jr. August 11, 2002 With the primary behind us, and general election campaigns gearing up for action, it is time to issue another warning about the "political gene," first discussed in TRACKSIDE five years ago. Scientists delving into the secrets of human genes often find a specific gene associated with a unique trait or malady. The actions of politicians lead me to believe that there exists in a large percentage of...

    <p>Among its other shortcomings of omission and commission, the California Legislature is a very inconsistent purveyor of public policy, constantly enacting legislation that reverses other laws, sometimes even within the same legislative session.</p> <p>While the syndrome is not a new one, the rapid turnover of legislators mandated by term limits may exacerbate it as it damages institutional memory. New people have new slants on matters of public policy and are not shy about engraving them into law, regardless of how they may conflict with past policies.</p>

Well, it is part of the Education Code Go to the following url, select California Education Code, and search for 48215 http://www.leginfo.ca.gov/calaw.html CALIFORNIA EDUCATION CODE SECTION 48215.

    PRESS RELEASE JANUARY 29, 2002 AMERICANPATROL.COM ENDORSES BILL JONES Calls for reinstatement of Proposition 187 Americanpatrol.com has endorsed California Secretary of State, Republican Bill Jones, for governor of California. Glenn Spencer, president of americanpatrol.com, says Jones is the most qualified of the three Republicans running in the March primary, and is on the right side of the illegal immigration issue. Bill Jones was on the side of sixty percent of Californians when he voted for Proposition 187, Spencer said, and polls show support for 187 is just as broad today. Dick Riordan left Los Angeles with a crumbling health care ...

    NewsMax.com's George Putnam E-mail Newsletter November 9, 2001 "One Reporter's Opinion" It is this reporter's opinion that whenever we face life threatening, actually civilization threatening, circumstances, we turn to the flag and the Bible - patriotism and faith go hand in hand. And yet almost immediately there's a reaction from the American Civil Liberties Union. Judging from their present behavior, one must conclude it is not the American Civil Liberties Union; it is the Anti-Christ Lawsuit Union. But then they're true to form. They were founded in 1920 by Roger Baldwin, a communist sympathizer. His board of directors were card-carrying ...

    Representative Thomas Tancredo ^ | Oct. 3, 2001 | Tom Tancredo
    Congress of the United States House of Representatives Washington, DC 20515 I recently received your comments about immigration and the state of our nation's borders. I appreciate hearing from you and, as you know, I wholeheartedly believe that American immigration policy is far too lax, and is in need of serious reform. The question that so many people have asked me is "What can be done?" During President Fox of Mexico's recent visit to Washington, I introduced House Concurrent Resolution 220, the Sovereign American Borders Resolution, a copy of which appears at the bottom of this message. The resolution affirms ...
  • America's Media Traitors

    AMERICA'S MEDIA TRAITORS Overall, the American media’s coverage of the recent terrorist atrocities has reflected well on them. However, and there’s always a ‘however’ when dealing with some reporters and media anchors, there were appalling exceptions. Those who used the atrocities to vent their hatred of Bush exposed themselves as callous political bigots. There’s a huge difference between criticizing, even in error, the president and trying to subvert him. The latter, in my opinion, amounts to giving aid and comfort to the enemy — i.e., treason. Let readers judge for themselves — except for those who follow the Chomsky line ...

    January 11, 2001 http://www.cato.org/ http://www.cato.org/dispatch/01-11-01d.html Lawmakers who want to restore the federal government to its constitutionally limited role now have an instruction manual: The "Cato Handbook for Congress." (http://www.cato.org/pubs/handbook/handbook107.html ) Released today, the "Cato Handbook for Congress" recognizes that the biggest problem facing America is a federal government that has slipped its constitutional bounds to become a threat to our lives, liberties and pursuit of happiness. The fourth edition of the Handbook is bigger than ever -- 64 chapters and 680 pages -- because the federal government is bigger than ever. "Washington now controls a $2 trillion budget, most of ...

    We have just learned of a serious threat to the freedom and liberty of the people of the United States. http://www.azstarnet.com/star/today/001116agentswarning.html The Department of Justice has now labeled nearly every organization concerned with reforming our immigration laws as a terrorist hate group, capable of killing people, including Border Patrol Agents. The Justice Department claims that groups such as the American Federation for Immigration Reform and the California Coalition for Immigration Reform, are linked to the Ku Klux Klan and are capable of serious terrorism. Ladies and gentlemen, this may be the precursor to massive arrests and detainment of anyone who ...

    A historical ribbing for Hillary 10/1/00 Abe Lincoln isn't just spinning in his grave. He has apparently climbed out of it and is looking for Hillary. At least it looked that way in Albany last week. Senate candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton was speaking to the state's newspaper editors at an Albany hotel. Honest Abe - or at least somebody in a stovepipe hat, long-tailed black coat and with the requisite whiskers - was in the hotel parking lot. He was holding a sign reading, "Who's Been Sleeping in My Bed?" It was a reference to the number of Clinton campaign ...
  • California Minority Populations Become Majority For First Time

    news max ^ | 8/29/2000 | Tom Verdin, AP writer
    LOS ANGELES (AP) -- California's minority population became the majority in 1999, continuing a demographic evolution that could have wide-ranging consequences for the state's political future. The state's non-Hispanic white population was 49.8 percent last year, according to U.S. Census Bureau estimates released Tuesday night. In 1990, it was 57 percent. That will be the first time since 1860, when accurate census data for California started being recorded, that whites did not have a majority, according to the state Department of Finance. State figures project the change will take place sometime between now and July 2001. While it marks a ...

    As President Clinton prepares to leave for Nigeria and Tanzania next week, a new government report shows that 159 foreign trips he and other administration officials took since 1997 have cost taxpayers at least $292 million. The General Accounting Office review of administration air transport expenses was requested by six Republican senators. One of them, Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.), called the costs "exorbitant." His colleagues declined comment until the report, obtained by The Washington Post, is made public. The White House said the type of travel expenses incurred for trips taken by Clinton – the most widely traveled of all ...

    Convention: Focusing on an issue that reverberates strongly in California, workers will demand attention from state delegations and federal legislators next week. Building on a burgeoning grass-roots movement that already has made inroads in Congress, labor and immigrant rights leaders will aggressively push their case for a new general amnesty at next week's Democratic convention. Immigrant workers and community activists plan to station themselves outside the daily gatherings of every state delegation and to relentlessly pester the dozens of federal legislators who will be in town. They will speak of justice and the contributions immigrants have made to the economy, ...

    A VIEW FROM HERE by deb weiss Legacyman On Parade April 3, 2000 There's almost no point in saying that Bill Clinton is at it again. Bill Clinton is always at it again. But with his excellent adventure winding down (too quickly for him, though not nearly quickly enough for the rest of us), he seems determined to remind us all in advance of what it is we're going to be missing come January. Take last Wednesday's press conference. During this rambling, self-congratulatory gabfest (gooily praised by Beltway journalists for its "breadth" and "substance"), he offered us some classic Clintonisms ...

    Washington Readies for World Bank, IMF Protests UPI Sunday April 2, 2000 WASHINGTON, April 2 (UPI) -- Activists who are planning protests in Washington during upcoming World Bank and International Monetary Fund meetings will begin arriving April 8 from around the country to prepare, and local residents and law enforcement officials, too, are getting ready, the Washington Post reported Sunday. Protesters will be rallying against what they say is destruction of the environment, abuse of workers and neglect of education and health care -- all caused, organizers say, by international capitalist policies imposed on the world by elitist groups ...

    LAST WEEK, while trying to figure out how much I'm going to have to fork over to the federal government in order to better enable it to oppress me, I was listening to a C-SPAN broadcast of a Senate hearing on campaign finance reform. It was an interesting and informative hearing, which is really so rare. At least it was interesting and informative when the law professors were talking, since they actually know something. (And they lie only when defending the criminal behavior of the Clinton administration in order to better position themselves for federal judgeships.) Across the board and ...
