    H.R. 3534, a bill to give our land away to the U.N., passed by a narrow margin. On July 30, 2010, 207 Democrats and two Republicans voted in favor of the bill, and 39 Democrats and 154 Republicans voted against it. Among many things, this bill exemplifies that bipartisan support in Among Congress only exists with the Republicans. The other news is that it raises fuel taxes an estimated 5 cents per gallon on gasoline and diesel.

    Piece by piece, America being given away “It’s too late; it’ll just have to be stopped in the Senate,” Tom, the young male answering the phone in U.S. Rep. John Boehner’s (R-Ohio)Washington D.C. office, said about HR 3534 (CLEAR Act). This is the globalist bill designed to give away our land, oceans, adjacent land masses and Great Lakes to an international body, and makes us pay $900 million per year until 2040. HR 3534 is a thinly disguised permanent roadblock to American energy which drives American companies out of the Gulf, delays future drilling, increases dependency on foreign oil, implements...
  • CLEAR Act Billions in New Taxes, Takeover of State Authority on Permits, $500M a Year to Ken Salazar

    Pelosi's CLEAR Act adds billions in new taxes, a federal takeover of a state's authority to issue pertinent permits within their state, and builds a $500 million annually, slush fund for the Interior Secretary. That slush fund is provided by $22 billion in new taxes over ten years, which settles at $3 billion-per-year after the ten years. The vote is expected Friday. Pelosi has also refused to allow an independent, bipartisan investigation into the BP oil spill - and according to sources this move is to protect Obama.

    WASHINGTON, D.C., Jul 28 - The CLEAR Act is being sold as a response to the Gulf oil spill crisis, yet the bill itself stretches far beyond addressing this tragedy to include page after page of provisions that are unrelated to the oil spill, will kill American jobs, and are premature by acting before Congress has the full facts from the numerous ongoing investigations into the Deepwater Horizon explosion and spill. The Obama Moratorium on deepwater drilling has already cost tens of thousands of jobs and this bill will eliminate even more American energy jobs by making it harder and...

    The latest version of the CLEAR Act is slated for a floor vote in the House this week as Democrats look for ways to use the Gulf oil spill as a means to pass elements of their unpopular energy agenda. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) stripped out authorization for an independent investigation into the Gulf disaster.  The Natural Resources Committee unanimously passed the amendment in committee markup July 14 offered by Rep. Bill Cassidy (R-La.) that would establish a bipartisan, independent, National Commission on Outer Continental Shelf Oil Spill Prevention. Unlike the commission set up by President Obama -- packed only with...

    Using a Sinclair service station as a backdrop, U.S. Sen. Orrin Hatch unveiled a bill Thursday aimed at increasing domestic oil production while reducing gas prices at the pump. "Whether you're a mother driving your daughter to ballet, a farmer working the soil on your tractor, a small business that makes deliveries or one that relies on deliveries, or even a senator making a long commute every day, we have all been feeling the sting of high gas prices," Hatch, R-Utah, said during a news conference. Hatch plans to introduce his bill, titled "Gas Price Reduction Through Increased Refining...

    For the cost of incarcerating Fabian Gomez-Montalvo, Oregon ought to send somebody the bill. It would not be for a small amount. The young man from Mexico, 20 years old and illegally in this country, was sentenced last week to nearly 27 years in prison. This was after he had pleaded guilty to a series of felonies stemming from five break-ins at Albany homes, including two cases in which he molested women who woke up to find them in their beds.The Department of Correction says it costs $64.25 a day to keep an inmate in prison. At that rate, assuming...

John Spencer Hurt, 47, was indicted on Feb. 26, 2003, on one count of conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine and one count of knowingly making the building at 948 N. Park St. available for storing, distributing or using methamphetamine, according to the indictment. The indictment occurred as a result of the investigation and prosecution of five other methamphetamine dealers, said Assistant District Attorney Ken Marken, who helped prosecute the case...

    Some of the most violent criminals at large today are illegal aliens. Yet in cities where the crime these aliens commit is highest, the police cannot use the most obvious tool to apprehend them: their immigration status. In Los Angeles, for example, dozens of members of a ruthless Salvadoran prison gang have sneaked back into town after having been deported for such crimes as murder, assault with a deadly weapon, and drug trafficking. Police officers know who they are and know that their mere presence in the country is a felony. Yet should a cop arrest an illegal gangbanger for...

    <p>One of the most vital resources for law-enforcement professionals is the FBI's National Crime Information Center (NCIC) database, which is accessed daily by 80,000 law-enforcement agencies across the United States. Unfortunately, when it comes to the enforcement of U.S. immigration law, the NCIC until now has been essentially worthless. The Bush administration has begun the process of changing this. As a result, Attorney General John Ashcroft is now facing a lawsuit from immigration advocacy groups.</p>

    To the casual observer, it would seem that the federal government has made real progress in immigration since 9/11. And, in fact, some of the measures we’ve seen over the past two years are encouraging signs that immigration is again being taken seriously after decades of malign neglect, such as the shift of the immigration function to the new Homeland Security Department, progress toward developing a tracking system for foreign visitors, and registration of aliens from certain Middle Eastern countries. But these are scattered moves lacking an overall strategy; the discussion of immigration policy in the political realm remains mired...

Now he can chase another kind of quarry: illegal immigrants. Last month, the Alabama Department of Public Safety became the second police agency in the country authorized to enforce federal immigration laws in an experiment that is heartening to some and disturbing to others. With more than 8 million undocumented immigrants in the United States, according to government figures, and 5,500 federal agents available for enforcement in...

    Yuma cops uneasy with arresting illegal aliens BY JAMES GILBERT Nov 7, 2003 Yuma County Sheriff Ralph Ogden thinks legislation that would require local and state law enforcement agencies nationwide to arrest illegal immigrants will do more harm than good. The measure, which is being pushed by Republicans in Congress, would also force officers to demand a license, registration and proof of citizenship on all routine traffic stops. This Compartment which housed eight illegal immigrants, was discovered in a tractor-trailor at 4a.m. Thursday "We live in an area that is mostly Hispanic," Ogden said.

    The next time you get pulled over by a police officer you may be asked for your license, your registration and possibly your green card. Republicans in Congress are pushing a controversial proposal that would pressure local and state police departments to arrest undocumented immigrants. Rep. Charlie Norwood, R-Ga., introduced the so-called CLEAR Act -- for Clear Law Enforcement for Criminal Alien Removal Act -- in July. The measure has 102 co-sponsors. It's no surprise that immigration advocates abhor the legislation, but so do many police chiefs who question whether the measure would do more harm than good. Tony Estrada,...
