Sen. John McCain, The Real Manchurian Candidate

As Super Tuesday draws closer, it becomes more important than ever for the 80% of Americans who understand the national security, economic, and social problems that have arisen as a result of our country's unwillingess to enforce immigration laws to remind people what is at stake in '08.

Since the Des Moines Register debates, the main stream media has taken illegal-immigration off the table. As a result, McCain's campaign has had a resurgence (to say nothing of Hillary, who's drivers license for illegals statements nearly killed her campaign.)

We must not forget who Senator John McCain is.

Sen. McCain, "I've never supported amnesty." [ABC's "This Week," 12/30/07]

Seems Sen. McCain forgot this little ditty back in '03.

"I think we can set up a program where amnesty is extended to a certain number of people who are eligible. [C. T. Revere, "McCain Pushes Amnesty, Guest-Worker Program," Tucson Citizen, 5/29/03]

Or this one.

"'Amnesty has to be an important part." [C. T. Revere, "McCain Pushes Amnesty, Guest-Worker Program," Tucson Citizen, 5/29/03]

But his lies about amnesty are the least of it. Recently, Sen. McCain appointed Juan Hernandez to his hispanic outreach. This is a guy who served in the Mexican government even though he is a US citizen, he supports open borders, and believes in a "Mexico-First" policy in where any Mexican-American, regardless of how many generations their family has been in America, should consider themselves a Mexican before they should an American. [http://wnd.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=59890]

On top of that, McCain's national finance co-chair is Jerry Perenchio, the founder of Univision. A Staunch open borders advocate, he is strongly opposed to any movement that would support or strengthen the English language as our national language. [http://michellemalkin.com/2008/01/28/open-borders-campaign-finance-hypocrisy-eco-radicalism-mccains-billionaire-national-finance-co-chair-jerry-perenchio/]

McCain's posisiton on illegal immigration is simply to wrong to ignore. Worse yet, McCain's other policies draw into question his very loyalty to America and our way of life.

On the Iraq war McCain has called for US troops to remain in Iraq for 100 years, despite the fact that in just the last 4 years we have spent $700 billion, 4,000 American lives, and 150,000 Iraqi lives. [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VFknKVjuyNk]

He's called for expanding the war to Iran, despite NIE reports showing Iran is not pursuing nuclear weapons. [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o-zoPgv_nYg]

And recently, he's called for even more wars. [http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2008/01/27/mccain-warns-there-will_n_83459.html]

On the issue of trade, McCain further moves away from mainstream citizens embracing failed free trade policies that have seen U.S. manufacturing and agriculture irradicated.

"I'm a student of history. Every time the United States has become protectionist and listened to the siren song that you're hearing partially on this stage tonight, we've paid a very heavy price." [2007 Republican debate in Dearborn, Michigan Oct 9, 2007]

Maybe Sen. McCain is just unaware of the Hamiltonian economic policies that saw the greatest increase in the middle class in the US than the world has ever known. Maybe Sen. McCain is unaware of the free trade experiment in the British isles that lead to massive defecits and the eventual destruction of the British empire. Maybe Sen. McCain is unaware of the managed trade practices of China, Japan, and India that have seen their countries economies explode. Maybe Sen. McCain is unaware that free trade agreements like NAFTA give international courts sovereignty over the United States.

As you run down the list of issues, one can only wonder what is causing Sen. McCain to come down on the wrong side of issues that are hurting America's independence.

Maybe these guys, who can't understand why a fellow POW like Sen. McCain refused to require Vietnam to disclose their interrogation tactics and results. [http://www.vietnamveteransagainstjohnmccain.com/]

Perhaps we are only left to wonder if the 1962 film, "The Manchurian Candidate" was more than just a movie.

La Raza Harasses and Intimidates 73 Year Old Woman

In events that are largely being ignored by the national media, Kansas City representatives of the racist group the National Council of La Raza (The Race for our English speaking friends) have been threatening to boycott Kansas City and pull their national convention from the city if the current mayor, Mark Funkhouser, does not remove 73 year old Francis Semler from the Kansas City Parks Board. Why the outrage over an elderly female member of a parks board? She happens to be a member of the Minuteman Civil Defense Corp, a neo-neighborhood watch group that seeks to end illegal immigration by watching our southern and northern borders and reporting illegal immigration to the border patrol.

Mayor Funkhouser has vowed to stand behind Ms Semler as long as her personal beliefs on immigration policy do not affect her service to the parks board.

Growing frustrated with the Mayor’s refusal to bend to their blackmail La Raza spokesperson and organizer of Sons and Daughters of Immigrants of Greater Kansas City, Jessica Ayala joined 5 other pro-illegal immigration activists and appeared on the doorstep of 73 year old Ms Semler on the morning of September 5th. Startled by the pounding on her door and seeing the large group outside, she did what any elderly woman would do, she called police.

When questioned, the group claimed they were only there to hand deliver a note demanding she resign from her position on the parks board. Police have stated they will increase patrols to the neighborhood.

Their note follows:

Dear Mrs. Semler,

We are writing on behalf of the congregations, community organizations and concerned citizens listed below to respectfully ask you to immediately resign your position as member of the Kansas City Missouri Parks and Recreation Board. As a member of the Minutemen it is clear that you do not embrace or welcome the cultural diversity of all Kansas City residents. The KC metropolitan area should be allowed the opportunity to heal from the difficulties this appointment has caused and your resignation permits this healing process to begin.

Please contact us by August 31st to let us know that you have the best interests of all metropolitan area citizens in mind and that you will immediately resign from the parks board.

Illegal Immigrants, the Face of the Subprime Mortgage Crisis

We'd like to introduce you to Alberto and Rosa Ramirez. The Spanish speaking husband and wife team work as strawberry pickers and each bring home about $300 per week. They and their three children are close friends with Jesus Martinez, his wife, and their three children. Jesus and his wife work as mushroom farmers and bring in about $500 per week when there is work.

Together the two families purchased a $720,000 home using a subprime, no doc loan. When it became quickly apparent that a strawberry framer making $15,000 a year couldn't make the monthly mortgage payment of $5,378, not to mention the additional $750 per month for insurance and taxes, the couples were left with the only option. They stopped paying and became squatters until they were finally foreclosed on.[1]

José Manuel J., an illegal immigrant from Mexico, came to the U.S. eight years ago to sweep construction sites. Using a subprime, no doc loan he purchased a home in the U.S. He also purchased land in Mexico and built another home there.[2]

Barbara Ehrenreich writes, "Somewhere in the Hamptons a high-roller is cursing his cleaning lady and shaking his fists at the lawn guys... they stopped paying their mortgages... these were trick mortgages, 'NINJA' loans, for example, awarded to people with 'no income, no job or assets.'"

She goes on to write, "In its May 21st cover story on "The Poverty Business," BusinessWeek documented the stampede, in just the last few years, to lend money to the people who could least afford to pay the interest: Buy your dream home! Refinance your house! Take on a car loan even if your credit rating sucks! Financiamos a Todos! Somehow, no one bothered to figure out where the poor were going to get the money to pay for all the money they were being offered." Financiamos a Todos, "We finance to all!"

Summing up, she writes, "Who would have thought that foreclosures in Stockton and Cleveland would roil the markets of London and Shanghai?"[3]

Below are two statistical graphics. The first depicts illegal immigrant populations by state in the U.S. The second shows foreclosure rates by state in the U.S. It doesn't take much of a trained eye to find the commonalities between the two.

Illegal immigrant populations by state:

Home Mortgage Foreclosures by state:
Source: RealtyTrac

"Foreclosure filings rose 9 percent from June to July and surged 93 percent over the same period last year." [4] "Consumer comfort plummeted this week amid turbulence in the stock market and a seemingly infectious crisis in the home mortgage market." [5]

Despite the rising economic crisis, the mainstream media has still not begun to investigate the apparent link between illegal immigration and the mortgage crisis. Instead they hold out hopes that the Federal Reserve will bail us out by cutting interest rates.

Subprime Mortgage Defaults Being Driven by Illegal Immigration?

Subprime mortgage loans are those granted to borrowers with less-than-perfect credit. Lenders typically charge higher interest rates to these subprime borrowers to compensate for potential losses.

Last week the first major subprime lender collapsed under the pressure from loan defaults. American Home Mortgage Investment Corp. sold nearly $60 billion dollars in loans to borrowers in 2006. They were forced to declare bankruptcy when they could no longer find Wall Street firms willing to invest in securities to back the loans they were making.

The failure of AMHMIC caused subprime concerns to spread to Alt-A mortgages, which are mortgage loans for people with good credit, but who do not want to nor have the means to verify income with tax forms and pay stubs. Alt-A loans made up 13% of all mortgage loans last year according to Inside Mortgage Finance.

When discussing the current mortgage loan crisis before Congress, Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke said on July 18, 2007 that "rising delinquencies and foreclosures are creating personal, economic and social distress for many homeowners and communities -- problems that likely will get worse before they get better."

"David Olson, president of Wholesale Access Mortgage Research & Consulting Inc. in Columbia, Maryland, is blunt about his current outlook. He says a third of the U.S. home-loan industry will disappear." [2]

The economic impact of this crisis is obvious. Lenders are running short on cash with which to make future loans and are being forced to borrow money from European banks. Hedge funds investing in mortgage securities are being frozen because managers can't determine their values because of lack of buyers. As of this writing the Dow Jones Industrial Average has fallen nearly 900 points from its high of 14000 based on mortgage default fears. The National Association of Realtors says U.S. housing prices will fall for the first time since the Great Depression of the 1930's.

Just who are these borrowers that are defaulting on their mortgage loans at a nearly a 50% rate? Leonardo Simpser of the Hispanic National Mortgage Association (NHMA) says that Hispanic first-time buyers constitute the fastest-growing segment of the subprime mortgage market. He also says that many Latinos, especially recent immigrants, have low FICO credit scores or no scores at all and are less creditworthy than they are in reality.

HNMA is the creator of the Hispanic Automated Underwriting System (HAUS) which claims to allow lenders to "eliminate the need for time-consuming manual underwriting of such applicants, and allows lenders to underwrite borrowers with no Social Security numbers and multiple income sources."

Congress needs to act. We need a full congressional investigation into determining just how rampant the illegal immigration problem is in regards to these mortgage defaults. Much like the savings-and-loan scandals of the 80's we need to know which banks are catering to illegal immigrants in violation of U.S. law and making these extremely high risk loans putting the economic prosperity of this country in great peril.

Call your congressmen today and demand an investigation! http://www.usa.gov/Contact/Elected.shtml

Press 1 for Amnesty, Presione Uno Para la Amnistía

The pro-open borders group Coalition for Comprehensive Immigration Reform is circling a hotline that allows pro-amnesty supporters to bypass the Senate switchboard and get directly to their Senators.

Why should you be concerned? Because if like the millions of other American citizens you have called the Senate switchboard to urge your Senators to vote NO on the new bill that will be voted on next week and provide amnesty to nearly 20 million illegal immigrants, you have most likely been met with a busy signal.

1-800-882-2005. (Spanish number)
1-800-417-7666. (English number)

So while, you a concerned citizen, is having his/her voice silenced, illegal immigrants and their supports have a direct line to your government representatives. Fortunately for us these numbers have been leaked to the public. We highly urge you to use them to call your senators if you are having trouble getting through. With the holiday weekend upon us and the vote coming up early next week time is running very short for you to make your voice heard.


We've heard a lot about how this new "comprehensive immigration reform" bill is not amnesty. How it requires illegal immigrants to obtain a "z" visa and pay a $5,000 fine to become citizens. But did you know this fine is already law?

Title 19, USC 1459 subsections (f) and (g) state any individual who enters this country illegally is liable for a civil penalty of $5,000 for the first violation, and $10,000 for each subsequent violation. Criminal penalty. In addition to being liable for a civil penalty under subsection (f) of this section, any individual who intentionally violates any provision of subsection (e) of this section is, upon conviction, liable for a fine of not more than $5,000, or imprisonment for not more than 1 year, or both.

But it's not just about the $5,000. Any illegal immigrant who applies for a "z" visa will be ran through a brief criminal background check. If nothing is found, they will be awarded their visa a mere 24 hours later.

The "z" visa allows the illegal immigrant to remain in this country to work and live, travel between their home country and the U.S. freely, and is renewable indefinitely. Thus, if an illegal immigrant chooses not to pay the $5,000 fine to become a U.S. citizen, they don't have too. They can continue to work for below market wages, obtain free medical care in our emergency rooms, and have their children educated in our school systems.

The "z" visa also does not include any provisions for learning English or any other measure that would encourage assimilation.

Call your Senators now! It's not too late to kill this bill!

Senate Amnetsy Agreement Reached

Senator Ted Kennedy and Harry Reid along with Presidential hopeful John McCain are proudly touting an agreement reached to provide amnesty to the approximately 20 million illegal aliens residing in the U.S. If you haven't contacted your Senators and Congressmen yet, now is the time to do so.

The plan includes the following provisions:

1. It provides amnesty for illegal aliens who came to this country prior to January 1, 2007 (How exactly you are to prove when an illegal came here is beyond me.), who have paid taxes, and do not have a criminal record.

2. It creates a new "Z" visa which will be issued to the previouosly mentioned group of illegal aliens that would allow them to stay and work in the U.S.

3. The head of the illegal alien household will be given 8 years to return to their country of origin and pay a fine of $5,000 to achieve U.S. citizenship.

4. Illegal aliens with "Z" visas not wanting citizenship will be able to renew their "Z" visa indifinetely allowing them to stay and work in the U.S.

5. A new guest worker visa will be created that allows a foreign worker to come to the U.S. and work for two years. It can then be renewed up to 3 times.

6. It decreases the length of the border fence called for in previously passed legislation from 750 miles to 370.

7. It calls for the hiring of 18,000 new border patrol agents (who we assume are being hired to replace the agents the federal government has been throwing in jail for protecting the U.S. from drug smugglers and other criminals).

Senator Kennedy stated the President has agreed to sign the bill. Thus, the only thing between amnesty for 20 million illegal aliens and law and order is the Democrat controlled House.

We can only hope the bi-annually elected House members will be more receptive to the will of the people and reject this disgraceful piece of legislation.

Building the Democrat Party One Illegal Alien at a Time

Today we sit on the precipice of disaster. Word is coming down from sources inside Washington that Senate Republicans are close to coming to an agreement with the White House and Senate Democrats on a comprehensive immigration reform bill that will provide amnesty to the nearly 20 million illegal immigrants currently in the U.S.

If this happens not only will our welfare system be strained further as more illegal aliens will stream across the border hoping for another amnetsy but the Democrat party will have a strangle hold on our federally elected offices. Here is what several leading Democrats have to say about it:

Top Democratic leaders and activists see Hispanic migration as a long-term opportunity for the party. The arrival of additional immigrant workers is bad for blue-collars," Rep. Barney Frank, D-Mass., chairman of the House Financial Services Committee, told National Journal late last year. But immigrants can help elect Democratic majorities, and if [a Democratic Congress] were to significantly strengthen unions, then you would offset the negative effect on the income of workers," he said. (National Journal, 5/12/07)

"Somehow," said a Democrat lawmaker who is trying to build Republican support, "we have to convince them that voting for comprehensive reform does not amount to 'enfranchising their defeat,'" a reference to the likelihood that two of every three new Latino voters would cast Democratic ballots. Our problem," he admitted, is that we are hoping that the legislation will build the Democratic electorate." (National Journal, 2/10/07)

Democratic leaders say Republican backing is critical, both to ensure passage of a bill in the Senate and to protect newly elected moderate and conservative Democrats in the House, some of whom campaigned against legalizing illegal immigrants. (New York Times, 3/23/ 07)

"As the number of legal Hispanics increases, the number of Democratic votes increases as well." (Democratic "insider", National Journal, 4/14/07)

"Taking immigration off the table as a red-meat issue for conservative Republicans would be very helpful in a presidential year . . . ." (Democratic Insider", National Journal, 4/14/07)
It's not too late to stop this. Contact your Senators TODAY and demand they do not permanently give away our representation to a party bent on creating a welfare society dependent on the federal government.
