    The U.S. Border Patrol has warned agents in Arizona of incursions into the United States by Mexican soldiers "trained to escape, evade and counterambush" if detected -- a scenario Mexico denied yesterday. The warning to Border Patrol agents in Tucson, Ariz., comes after increased sightings of what authorities described as heavily armed Mexican military units on the U.S. side of the border. The warning asks the agents to report the size, activity, location, time and equipment of any units observed. It also cautions agents to keep "a low profile," to use "cover and concealment" in approaching the Mexican units, to...
  • Bush decries border project

    <p>WACO, Texas -- President Bush yesterday said he opposes a civilian project to monitor illegal aliens crossing the border, characterizing them as "vigilantes." He said he would pressure Congress to further loosen immigration law. More than 1,000 people -- including 30 pilots and their private planes -- have volunteered for the Minuteman Project, beginning next month along the Arizona-Mexico border. Civilians will monitor the movement of illegal aliens for the month of April and report them to the Border Patrol. Mr. Bush said after yesterday's continental summit, with Mexican President Vicente Fox and Canadian Prime Minister Paul Martin at Baylor University, that he finds such actions unacceptable. "I'm against vigilantes in the United States of America," Mr. Bush said at a joint press conference. "I'm for enforcing the law in a rational way." The Minuteman Project was born out of a long-held perception among many residents that more Border Patrol agents are needed to handle the flow of illegal immigrants. Mr. Bush was criticized by both Republicans and Democrats earlier this month for failing to add 2,000 agents to the Border Patrol, as set out in the intelligence overhaul legislation he signed in December. The president's 2006 budget allows enough money to add only 210 agents for the U.S. borders with Canada and Mexico. Mr. Bush said he will "continue to push for reasonable, common-sense immigration policy." He has proposed legislation to grant guest-worker status to millions of illegal aliens already in the United States. The legislation has attracted scant support in Congress, where it is widely regarded as another amnesty that will encourage even more illegal immigration.</p>

    By early next year (2005) Congress will convene and decide whether or not to push through the incognito FTAA (Free Trade Area of the Americas). If this free-trade pact goes through successfully, a revolution inconceivable since America’s founding will sweep across the American front, unleashing widespread economic instability by uniting North America’s market with Mexico’s, and eventually South America’s. Together, this process will consolidate North and South America’s monetary system, trade, market, political hemisphere, and regional infrastructure. On top of this, the Bush Administration’s recently proposed “Amnesty” plan will compound the situation by flooding America with an influx of mass-immigration...

    What follows is an analysis by James Woolsey who was Director of the Central Intelligence Agency under Bill Clinton. This was a talk before a private group of influential people. This man is incisive and brilliant in his analysis. A long read but very insightful as to what is going on in the mid-east & how it affects the USA. This will not be seen in the New York Times or various other popular publications.

  • "Strong Dollar" Policy Loses its Grip

    'Strong dollar' policy loses its grip By Patrice Hill THE WASHINGTON TIMES      John W. Snow, President Bush's pick to head the Treasury Department, faces an immediate challenge of how to handle a rapidly tumbling dollar.       For reasons ranging from fear about war with Iraq to low interest rates, a weakening economy and huge trade and budget deficits, the greenback since November has fallen quickly to three-year lows against the euro and is down by 17.5 percent against six other major currencies in the last year.      That raises the cost of imported goods from cars to French wine and makes...
