  • Public [taxpayer funded] Study: Illegal Immigrants Commit Less Crime Than Americans

    Judicial Watch ^ | June 12, 2012 | Corruption Chronicles
    Illegal immigrants are erroneously perceived to commit more crime based on the mistaken theory their population size is much larger than it really is, according to the findings of a respected public university in a southern border state. If this isn’t the most ridiculous waste of taxpayer dollars, what is? A professor at a taxpayer-funded university in Arizona has actually published a study intended to answer a baffling question; why do so many Americans believe “undocumented immigrants” commit more crime? “The public consistently perceives immigrants, especially undocumented immigrants, as criminal,” says the Arizona State University professor (Xia Wang) of criminology...

    WASHINGTON — Attorney General Eric Holder defended his department’s challenges to state’s voter ID laws on Monday, alleging that “those on all sides of this debate have acknowledged that in-person voting fraud is uncommon.” Holder spoke at the League of Women Voters conference where he challenged those who believe that “easing registration hurdles will only lead to voter fraud.”

    WLS - Chicago ^ | June 12, 2012 | Ben Bradley
    New questions have emerged about a government program that has given away millions of free cell phones and service to people with low incomes and those in rural areas. The money comes from the federal "Universal Service Charge" on your phone bill. It has its roots way back in the 1930s. The goal was to make sure people in rural areas and the poor had access to telephone service. In the 1990s, it expanded to include wireless phones. Since then, the numbers have exploded. The cost of the program is now more than $1 billion dollars a year. The FCC,...

Job growth has stalled, the Democrats have been humiliated in Wisconsin, the attorney general is facing a contempt-of-Congress citation, talks with Pakistan have broken down, Bill Clinton is contradicting Obama, Mitt Romney is outraising him, Democrats and Republicans alike are complaining about a “cascade” of national-security leaks from his administration, and he is now on record as saying that the “private sector is doing fine.” Could it get any worse? Early Monday morning, Obama learned that it could. His aides delivered the news to him that his commerce secretary had been...

    Both Barack Obama II and Stanley Ann Dunham are invented personas. A male child was born, probably son of Malcolm X and an unknown woman possibly Jo Ann Newman (per Martha Trowbridge). The childs father knew his days were numbered so to protect his only son he arranged with his Muslim and Communist contacts, to have him brought up in Indonesia under the protection of President Sukarno. He was a member of the Presidents extended family and under the direct protection of a high ranking Indonesian special forces officer, Pak Lolo Soetoro (which was probably not his real name).

    (CNSNews.com) - Since President Barack Obama was inaugurated in January 2009, the Federal Reserve’s holdings of U.S. government debt have quintupled, according to the Fed’s official monthly balance sheet. On Jan. 28, 2009, a week after Obama’s nomination, the Fed owned $302 billion in U.S. Treasury securities. On April 25, 2012, the latest date reported, the Fed owned five and a half time that much in U.S. Treasury securities--$1.668 trillion. That is an increase from January 2009 of $1.366 trillion—or 452 percent. Under Obama, the Federal Reserve has become the single largest owner of U.S. government debt. When Obama entered...

    COMMENTARY | Yet another celebrity advertisement for President Barack Obama was unveiled earlier this week. While Marc Anthony may be an attractive and accomplished singer, he likely does not have much in common with the typical Latino voter. Anthony's impassioned plea that Obama needs another term to continue "making progress" and that he "has our backs" during the video clip republished on The Blaze neglects to mention that Anthony himself has proven he cares little about the nation's debt. According to document excerpts published by the Washington Free Beacon, Anthony is a "tax-dodger" who owed more than $3 million back...

The Election Night tally showed that Wanggaard lost to Democrat John Lehman by 779 votes, or 1.1 percent out of 72,000 votes cast Tuesday. But Wanggaard tells WRJN Radio in Racine that at least 600 absentee ballots have still not been counted. The station says there have been reports of voting irregularities throughout Racine County, and problems with the unofficial tally. So Wanggaard says he’ll hold tight before...

    What happened in Wisconsin signals a shift in political mood and assumption. Public employee unions were beaten back and defeated in a state with a long progressive tradition. The unions and their allies put everything they had into "one of their most aggressive grass-roots campaigns ever," as the Washington Post's Paul Whoriskey and Dan Balz reported in a day-after piece. Fifty thousand volunteers made phone calls and knocked on 1.4 million doors to get out the vote against Gov. Scott Walker. Mr. Walker's supporters, less deeply organized on the ground, had a considerable advantage in money. But organization and money...

    Seven US conservation groups on Thursday filed a lawsuit against the Environmental Protection Agency, accusing the government of failing to regulate the use of toxic lead bullets in hunting. Lead bullets have been shown to fragment upon impact, leaving bits behind in carcasses that other animals scavenge. The practice can cause lead poisoning in species such as the endangered California condor, eagles, swans and more. A petition by 100 environmental groups to the EPA in March, asking for the agency to regulate the components of ammunition used in hunting under the Toxic Substances Control Act, was refused amid strong opposition...

"It is the position of this Department of Justice and certainly this Attorney General that we will vigorously defend and vigorously use Section 5. The need for it is still there." Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act requires several southern states and counties in states such as California and Florida to get federal “pre-clearance”...

If they really cared about these people — of whom there may be millions — Democrats would join Republicans to ensure that they receive ID cards for everyday use. Instead, leading Democrats use vicious racial rhetoric to hammer those who simply want voters to prove they are who they claim to be. “Some people want to put their Confederate flags up again in Virginia,” former NAACP director Benjamin Chavis...

But some immigrant advocates say the rules leave some of the poorest residents of the county scrambling for ways to get to jobs or supermarkets.

Back in ye olde 1982, Tom Bradley, the longtime popular mayor of Los Angeles, a nice affable fellow in my recollection, ran for California governor against a fairly faceless guy named George Deukmejian. Most of the polls — including exit polls — showed Bradley with a significant lead. But Deukmejian won, narrowly. This was all put down to a form of covert racism. People didn’t want to admit they wouldn’t vote for a black man. As an ex-civil rights worker, I remember being hugely depressed by Bradley’s defeat. Times have changed. These...

    Anyone who claims that teachers unions exist to improve public education is misinformed or lying. The unions have become blatantly political organizations that spend most of their time and resources trying to maintain their domination of public schools and school budgets. When an occassional reformer, like Wisconsion Gov. Scott Walker, comes along and questions their self-serving agendas, they turn into political assasination machines. And they are not ashamed to use taxpayer-funded schools to push their agendas. The latest evidence comes from Milwaukee Teachers Education Association President Bob Peterson, who boasted this week about his union's efforts to sway voters, including...

    There are ongoing debates over tax hikes and cuts in the United States domestic front, which makes it extremely frightening to imagine a world in which third-party, international organizations could impose taxes on countries. Global taxes would give the power to tax overseas to organizations such as the World Health Organization (WHO) and the United Nations (UN). The Center for Freedom and Prosperity released a study titled “Global Taxes Threaten Fiscal Sovereignty and Democratic Accountability” which can be viewed here. If these organizations succeed in passing their proposed global taxes, they would be applied in a "one size fits all"...

Seven teams will monitor Milwaukee in conjunction with the Milwaukee County District Attorney’s office, two teams will monitor Madison, and single teams will be sent to Beloit/Janesville, Eau Claire, Green Bay, Kenosha/Racine, La Crosse, Waukesha, and Wausau....

    MILWAUKEE, Wis. — Fearing their own bargaining rights could be stripped away, members of New York’s powerful unions piled onto planes to Wisconsin in an effort to topple GOP Gov. Scott Walker in tomorrow’s recall election. Dozens representing, among others, health-care Local 1199 East, building-service Local 32BJ and Local 726 of the Amalgamated Transit Union, are knocking on doors, making calls and handing out fliers to support Democrat Tom Barrett over Walker. And members from around the country of the Transport Workers Union are badgering voters in the Badger State by cold-calling them using an online phone bank. Many Wisconsin...

    ‘Thousands of dollars” in state grants awarded to bolster health care in minority communities instead went to pay campaign workers for former state Sen. Rickey Hendon and Democratic candidates Hendon supported, a Chicago nurse has told investigators. The nurse, Tonja Cook, 44, detailed her allegations in four interviews with state and federal authorities between October 2010 and May 2011, records show. In June 2011, federal prosecutors in Springfield charged Cook and another Chicago nurse, Margaret A. Davis, with siphoning $500,000 from state grant funds for Davis’ “personal use.” Hendon, 58, a West Side Democrat who unexpectedly retired from the Senate...

    Unbelievable. The Democrats are looking down the barrel of a humiliating defeat in Wisconsin’s recall election on Tuesday, so today they played their last card: they started a rumor that Scott Walker fathered an illegitimate child 24 years ago. The “scoop” comes from something called the Wisconsin Citizens Media Co-op. The “Co-op” attributes the story to a woman named Bernadette Gillick, who teaches physical therapy at the University of Minnesota. Ms. Gillick claims to have known Walker’s girlfriend when they were students at Marquette. The “Co-op” says it has “not been able to independently verify Bernadette’s account.” No surprise there.

    While proponents of immigration enforcement have been told that the federal government monitors the hiring of illegal aliens by the private sector, including adherence to the federal employment verification (I-9) program, Attorney General Eric Holder's Justice Department appears to have made a decision to penalize organizations that zealously comply. For example, on Thursday the Justice Department announced that it filed a civil lawsuit against the Tuscany Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada, accusing the company of engaging in "a pattern or practice of discrimination in the employment eligibility verification and re-verification process."

    The Mexican ambassador to the United States told a Capitol Hill forum that his government was “kept in the dark” about U.S. government-condoned and abetted “gunwalking” operations, and also questioned the intent behind Operation Fast and Furious, The Los Angeles Times is reporting today. Appearing before “the New Democrat Network...a center-left think tank and advocacy organization, and the New Policy Institute, one of its sister organizations,” Arturo Sarukhan’s claims raise questions as to why major news outlets like The Times are just now getting around to reporting on information raised in this column and on the Sipsey Street Irregulars blog...

    The Obama Administration’s Department of Justice told Florida election officials that they must halt their efforts to purge non-citizens from the State’s voter registration rolls. T. Christian Herren Jr., the DOJ’s lead civil rights lawyer, pointed out that “inasmuch as the vast majority of the non-citizens voting in Florida are illegal immigrants from Latin America this purging exercise would have a disproportionate impact on a protected minority. Thus, the purge violates both the 1965 Voting Rights Act and the 1993 National Voter Registration Act.” Florida officials were warned that “failure to comply with this cease-and-desist order may require the Department...

    The state debt clock for Connecticut indicates that 10% of the state's population currently receives food stamps. Broken down by citizen, every state resident is approximately $11,000 in debt due to government spending. Given the state's unemployment numbers, approximately 8%, combined with tax rates and breaks, we know not all of them will pay much, if anything, in taxes. Now, meet Joelle Fishman. She is head of the state communist party and is associated with other far leftist causes and organizations. Joelle Fishman chairs the Connecticut Communist Party USA. She is a Commissioner on the City of New Haven Peace...

    Remember when America was the world leader? Remember when it was America who would not sit idly by when outrageous evils were sanctioned by the collective negation of humanity (the UN)? Mugabe How low America has sunk under the fraud. Even the pathologically leftist NY Times has said that Mugabe should be tried for war crimes. And this just last week: President Robert Mugabe and his henchmen are accused of crimes against humanity, a British newspaper reported on Saturday, for among other things, "slowly hacking off the limbs and pulling out the teeth with pliers of his opposition's supporters.

Where will it all end for the global warming worshippers? Here’s the latest, which just happens to devastate another assumption of the warming theorists (emphasis ours): . . .

    The Obama campaign has been running the below ad all over the internet. When I saw it, something about it caught my eye. Upon closer inspection, I discovered what it was. The Y-axis distance from 0 to -200,000 jobs is 15 pixels, but the distance from 0 to +200,000 is 20 pixels. What the Obama campaign has done – in a very subtle way – is to visually and fraudulently inflate their job creation record by a third. And they thought we were too stupid to notice. “Chocolate rations have been increased from thirty grams to twenty grams.” --- The...
