IMMIGRATION- LEGALIZED POLITICAL BRIBERY

 

Being retired provides you more time to read to read and listen. Unfortunately for me it reveals just how rotten the political process has degraded America. As a young man I saw how manipulating the Hispanic voting process in Texas resulted in Lyndon Johnson becoming a U. S. Senator. Johnson as President pushed the socialist agenda to a level that would make FDR look like a conservative. Every president since has manipulated the Hispanic people to join the other welfare dependent voters in an attempt to guarantee re-election. This includes the progressive republicans like Bush.

 

The Obama administration and all democrats have decided to intensify the manipulation of the Hispanic voters to help get Obama another term as president. The democrats have the people on lifelong welfare and the union votes locked up. With the massive increase in government employees they still need the illegal aliens to assure victory in 2012.

 

I challenge you to read more about what is happening and I will share some interesting facts to hopefully excite you. A great source is an article by Tom Fitton published on Big Government.com on June 28th.

 

Anyone who reads or listens to the news, even the democratic main stream media, has been well informed about sanctuary cities. In Texas it is sad that Houston and Austin totally ignore the illegal aliens and in reality protect them from prosecution and deportation. These and other cities are encouraged by the current president and the democrats to ignore the criminal activity. They need every vote possible.

 

Obama’s Director of Intergovernmental Affairs, Cecelia Munoz, a former top official of the National Council of La Raza (NCLR) has been successful in massive increased government funding for NCLR. This organization has been receiving government funding for years but Ms. Munoz has this bribery in overdrive. Funding has tripled in the last year.

 

The Department of Labor provides 60% of the funding. No surprise as it is headed by former congresswoman Hilda Solis with close ties to NCLR. Since she was named Secretary of Labor Ms. Solis has launched a nationwide campaign to protect illegal immigrant workers in the USA. In the latter part of June she made declarations with Guatemala and Nicaragua to preserve the rights of their migrants.

 

NCLR receives substantial government funding from the Department of Housing and Urban Development and the Center for Disease Control. NCLR also has affiliate organizations such as, Chicanos Por La Causa (CPLC) whose federal funding has doubled since Munoz was appointed.

 

Another social service and legal services organization, Ayuda Inc., which did not receive any federal funding 2005-2008, Ayuda received $1,148,000 from the US Department of Justice in 2009-2010. This company provides immigration law services and guarantees confidentiality to assure illegal aliens they will not be reported to authorities. It would be appreciated by every criminal to have the government to pay to help them evade the law. Woops, that could be underway as the democrats are trying to overturn convicted felons inability to vote. They have had control of the dead people’s votes in some states for many years.

 

If you are concerned about this, please enter your comments on the blog. If this does not peak your interest, watch for the next posting. It will scare the daylights out of you, especially if you live in Texas, New Mexico, Arizona or California. Wait until you see what “La Raza” has underway for you.

CONGRESSIONAL CON GAMES

 

They can’t wait until the public calms down to use other ways to deceive the folks about wasteful spending. Regardless of how many devious ways to waste money to get re-elected are exposed, they will find others. One new republican Senator discovered a method with little exposure as a way to hide extortion type pressure from being associated with him even before the election. Chicago style politics seems to have no party affiliation with even republicans being sent to prison. 

Senator Mark Kirk R-Illinois won the Senate seat that Obama vacated to run for President. During his campaign he stated that he would oppose Speaker of the House, Nancy Polisi’s trillion-dollar stimulus plan. He along with many other republicans squealed loudly about pork-barrel spending and the use of designating money for special projects via “earmarks”.

Mr. Kirk understood political pressure, for example, he sent a letter to the Department of Education on September 10, 2009, asking the release of money “needed to support students and educational programs” in a local school district. The New York Times (NYT) obtained a copy of the letter from the Citizens Against Government Waste group that had obtained the copy under the Freedom of Information Act. The Woodland School District 50 later received $1,100,000.00 in stimulus funds.

The NYT reported that his spokeswoman, Susan Kuczka, reported, “Senator-elect Kirk became the first member of the Appropriations Committee to stop requesting earmarks and voted against the stimulus bill. He has and will continue to be an advocate for his Illinois constituents before administration agencies but will not request Congressional earmarks to be included in House or Senate legislation.”

Watch the weasel words as he made no mention that he would not use the alternatives of lettermarking or phonemarking which are alternatives to hide themselves from the spending. Let me show you how. Lettermarking which takes place outside the Congressional appropriations process is another way to let the Congressperson provide money back home and the money comes from the budgets approved for that government agency. I am sure that a Congressperson would not include money for that agency in the preparation of their annual budget. If you believe that, I have some swamp land you may want to buy!

Phonemarking is where the lawmaker calls an agency requesting money for a home district or State for specific projects. They should be called soft-earmarks which is merely suggesting that money be used for home projects or Hard-earmarks where they demand that funds be available for their district/State.

These are not new scams as they have been used for years. If we did this it would be called bribery or fraud. Both Presidents Bush and Obama issued Executive Orders to all government agencies to not finance pet projects requested from a Congressperson. Anyone out there really believe they actually stopped the practice? Would you say no to the people who approve your budget? No one would be that stupid.

Representative Jeff Flake R-Arizona sees merit in banning all of these practices. He has raised the issue with the new Speaker of the House, John Boehner who has not committed to banning all types of  soft/hard earmarks.

Soft earmarks accounted for billions of dollars in 2006, the last year they were examined, according to the Congressional Research Service. It sort of makes you wonder why but remember they will find another way regardless. In 2006 most were in spending bills for the State Department, US Agency for International Development and other foreign aid programs. Maybe these billions would have prevented the unemployment situation we have today!

Let me share just one example of how these pet projects are forced on the government agency. The 2010 military bill contained $2,500,000,000.00 for more C-17 transport aircraft; $825,000,000.00 for all-terrain vehicles; $732,000,000.00 for other airplanes and $500,000,000.00 for a second engine for the F-35 aircraft. The Pentagon did not request these funds and did not desire to spend the money. I wonder why it was there, do you?

Taxpayers for Common Sense found 146 such undisclosed earmarks totaling nearly $6,000,000,000.00 in 2010 spending bills.

You will find some more interesting things in my AMERICAN ROYALTY-PART 5 next Tuesday 1-4-11.

Let me leave you with a question. Do you really think that 2011 will see major change to the waste we are watching? I do not. Bring on a third-party to change Washington. The last time this happened was when Lincoln was elected and sadly it produced the Civil War, read your history, I did.
