    Sometimes I really hate being right. Look at my website. On September 17, 2004 (“Oops, Government Does It Again”) and June 6, 2003 (“We’re From the Government and We’re Here to Help You”) both predicted massive increases in health care premiums and huge increases in the uninsured from continued regulation of health care financing, principally regulation of health insurance. This week, the Insurance Commissioner, an advocate for socialized medicine, wrote a report, which he called “Priced Out,” showing that insurance premiums have increased 61 per cent, and the number of uninsured has increased to 6.6 million Californians. He blames insurance...

    If the state is to form its own police force to guard the U.S.-Mexico border, it will be up to citizens to make it happen. No, not via a force of civilian volunteers like the Minuteman Project, but through the signature-collecting initiative process. State Assemblyman Ray Haynes' (R-Murrieta) proposed constitutional amendment to create a force called the California Border Police was killed in the Legislature, but the initiative just went into circulation after its ballot title and summary were approved by the state attorney general. The Antelope Valley's representatives support the effort, with state Sen. George Runner (R-Lancaster) and Assemblywoman...

    Double-digit spending increase shows Democrats learn nothing from history. Is California destinied to repeat it? I guess they just can’t help themselves. They certainly don’t learn from history. I am talking, of course, of the Legislative majority. This year’s budget is a disaster in the making. I hope I am wrong, and the disaster never occurs, but certainly the seeds for a future disaster have been planted, and the current legislative majority is responsible. They are spending money like a bunch of drunken sailors, again. According to the Legislative Analyst Office (September 22, 2004), last year’s budget (the 2004-05 spending...

    By Mark Andrew Dwyer - July 6, 2005 A majority of California lawmakers work hard to give away as much of the Golden State and its budget to illegal aliens as they can. But they don't have guts to openly say so. They will deceitfully seek all kinds of phony excuses to cover up for their de facto refusal to represent majority of California voters, that only those brainwashed in California public schools and universities and those with substandard IQ will buy. As reported by the Associated Press [1], "[t]he Judiciary Committee [of California Assembly] voted 4-2 to turn down...

    SACRAMENTO - An Assembly committee on Tuesday rejected proposed constitutional amendments seeking to deny a series of benefits to illegal immigrants and create a state border police force, but both could resurface next year as ballot initiatives. The Judiciary Committee voted 4-2 to turn down an amendment by Assemblyman Mark Wyland, R-Vista, that would prevent illegal immigrants from receiving any health care or social services not required by federal law. The committee also voted 5-2 to reject an amendment by Assemblyman Ray Haynes, R-Temecula, that would create a state border police force to supplement federal efforts to enforce immigration laws,...

    "We conservatives believe government has one legitimate function — public safety. Protecting the border is public safety." The border police force also would enforce ignored laws that ostensibly forbid the hiring of illegal immigrants. For farm labor, Haynes supports a temporary guest worker program. "People coming into this country now are exploited at every level," he says. "They're exploited by traffickers, they're exploited by a large chunk of employers, they're victims of crime they can't report because they're afraid of being caught." Haynes is under no illusion that the Legislature will pass his measure. So he's aiming for a ballot...

    INVASION USA California border police proposed Ballot initiative would establish new agency to enforce immigration law-------------------------------------------------------- Posted: May 12, 2005 1:00 a.m. Eastern © 2005 A proposed ballot measure in California would establish a new California border police to enforce federal immigration law. The initiative's author, state Sen. Ray Haynes, a Republican, hopes the initiative will gain enough signatures to qualify for the ballot next year. An anti-illegal immigration group, Rescue California, is helping to promote the measure, which is titled "California Border Police Act." Promoters say a federal law passed in 1996 authorizes states to enforce federal...

    SACRAMENTO, Calif. - Two legislative committees on Tuesday rejected a constitutional amendment that would ban gay marriages and strip away a long list of rights granted to domestic partners in recent years. The Assembly and Senate Judiciary Committees both rejected an amendment offered by Republican Assemblyman Ray Haynes, who claimed the proposal would strengthen the intent of voters who approved a ballot measure five years ago that prevents the state from recognizing gay marriages performed elsewhere. Other laws bar same-sex marriages from taking place in California. Conservative groups immediately said they would try to gather the nearly 600,000 signatures required...

    Behind the counter at the busy Hart Lane driver testing center here, Rosa King looked over the man's fistful of documents, including a Mexican birth certificate and a separate, typewritten English translation. The translation, Ms. King explained in Spanish, was not exact enough. It would have to be redone. When the man returned, he would be eligible for a card bearing his photograph, date of birth, height, eye color and the words "Not Valid for Identification." Tennessee is one of only two states that issue two different driver's permits: a license, for citizens and permanent residents; and a certificate for...

    When opponents of the “Real ID” legislation announced a rally for illegal immigrants and their allies in Montgomery County, MD, there was one immigration-related group I was absolutely certain would not show up: The Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the people responsible for actually enforcing our immigration laws. Casa de Maryland and others claimed 5,000 people would gather on Saturday to protest the “Real ID” Act working its way through Congress, and many of these people would be illegal immigrants themselves, we were told. If I were looking for immigration criminals, it’s exactly where I would be. That’s why...

    Latino and immigrant support groups are mobilizing against the proposed Real ID Act, a federal law that would prohibit states from issuing driver's licenses to illegal immigrants. Immigrant support groups say Real ID would make roads less safe and could erode national security, not improve it. "It will make millions of people that live in our nation hide even more," said Gustavo Torres, executive director of Casa de Maryland, a Latino advocacy group. "They are going to keep driving, keep working, but now they are going to be even more scared to participate in our society, to cooperate with police...

    "Congressman Reconquista": Immigration Reformers Not Welcome In GOP by William Norman Grigg May 7, 2005 According to Utah Congressman Chris Cannon, a shameless flack for the illegal immigrant lobby, those committed to protecting our borders cannot be true Republicans. During a May 4 Washington, D.C. forum sponsored by the Latino Coalition, Representative Chris Cannon (R-Utah), a congressional point man for the Bush administration’s illegal immigrant amnesty proposal, suggested that fellow Republican congressman Tom Tancredo of Colorado "ought to reconsider his membership in the Republican Party," reported the Rocky Mountain News.

    LIKE MANY other southern Arizonans, I am deeply grateful to the few dozen vigilantes calling themselves Minutemen who set up camp along the Arizona-Mexico border last month. That few people around here were much impressed with a bunch of retirees in camouflage playing soldier, and that there turned out to be almost as many reporters as patriots on the ground, was irrelevant: We were just thrilled by the publicity. We’ve been trying to get the rest of the country to notice what’s going on down here for years. U.S. immigration policy has turned the Arizona desert between Tucson and the...

    A new opinion poll by Zogby International indicates Americans are hardly pleased with the Bush administration on the subject of illegal immigration. The poll, cited on CNN's "Lou Dobbs Tonight" program yesterday, noted a huge majority – 81 percent – believes local and state police should help federal authorities enforce laws against illegal immigration. Only 14 percent disagreed. Voters were also asked, "Do you support or oppose the Bush administration's proposal to give millions of illegal aliens guest worker status and the opportunity to become citizens?" Only 35 percent gave their support, and 56 percent said no. "A majority opposed...

    Friday, May 06, 2005 - SACRAMENTO -- Stymied in his efforts to allow illegal immigrants to get driver's licenses, Sen. Gil Cedillo, D-Los Angeles, has found a backdoor way around the ban with a proposal that would exempt undocumented motorists from vehicle-impound laws. Under current law, for 30 days police can impound the vehicle of a motorist caught driving without a valid license. Cedillo's bill would exempt those who don't have a license simply because they are not legal U.S. residents. Cedillo said law enforcement resources should be dedicated to going after serious driving offenses such as drunk driving, not...

    WASHINGTON - Rep. Tom Tancredo ought to reconsider his membership in the Republican Party, a Utah congressman said Wednesday after the two GOP lawmakers put an intraparty rift over immigration policy on full public display. "I think he ought to consider his views and decide whether they're consistent with the Republican Party," Rep. Chris Cannon, R-Utah, said of the Colorado congressman after the two clashed repeatedly during a forum sponsored by the Latino Coalition, a Hispanic business group.

    Many Hispanic activists, Mexican citizens and perhaps even members of the Mexican government believe the American Southwest rightfully belongs to Mexico. They refuse to accept the legality of the U.S. annexation of Texas in 1845, the 1848 Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo following the Mexican-American War, which gave large parts of Mexico to the U.S., or the 1852 Gadsden Purchase of Mexican territory now in Arizona and New Mexico. Story Continues Below A Zogby poll found that 58 percent of Mexicans agreed with the statement, "The territory of the Southwest U.S. rightfully belongs to Mexico," and therefore they believe they don't...
