Obama gives 179,600 work permits to aliens



Aliens Flood U.S. Job Market

  • To better serve their Masters on Wall Street demanding cheap labor, both Democrats and Republicans are flooding the country with legal and illegal workers to compete directly with American citizens for jobs.


(Editor  -  On a personal note, I can relate to the fucking over the GOP and Dems are giving the American Sheeple.  My wife's company outside of L.A. has three floors.  They fired all the American citizen workers on the 3rd floor and shipped those jobs to the Philippines.  They then fired all the American citizen workers on the first floor and imported Indian "guest workers" at lower wages to replace them.  My wife and the remaining American citizens on the second floor await their fate.  In 2014 I protested the only way I could.  I left blank all the statewide offices on my California ballot.  I refused to vote for either of the open borders parties.)


(Breitbart News)  -  In February, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) Director León Rodríguez announced that, come May, the Obama administration would be extending employment authorization eligibility to a category of immigrant previously ineligible to work in the U.S. — dependent spouses of H-1B immigrants.
DHS began accepting applications under the new H-4 employment rule — which was part of the executive actions on immigration President Obama put in motion on November 20 — Tuesday.
When the Obama administration announced the expansion in February, it anticipated that the number of individuals eligible to apply for work permits under the rule could be 179,600 in the first year and 55,000 for each subsequent year.
Last month, a group of former Southern California Edison employees — displaced by H-1B visa holders — sued the administration over the new H-4 rule, arguing that it negatively impacts their job prospects.
“DHS’s H-4 Rule, which grants work authorization to H-4 visa holders, injures Save Jobs USA’s members by (1) depriving them of statutory protections from foreign labor…(2) by increasing the number of economic competitors; and (3) by conferring benefits to their economic competitors on H-1B visas,” the lawsuit read.

American Workers Replaced by Aliens
.
(Computer World)  -  Information technology workers at Southern California Edison (SCE) are being laid off and replaced by workers from India. Some employees are training their H-1B visa holding replacements, and many have already lost their jobs.

The employees are upset and say they can't understand how H-1B guest workers can be used to replace them. The IT organization's "transition effort" is expected to result in about 400 layoffs, with "another 100 or so employees leaving voluntarily," SCE said in a statement. The "transition," which began in August, will be completed by the end of March, the company said.
"They are bringing in people with a couple of years' experience to replace us and then we have to train them," said one longtime IT worker. "It's demoralizing and in a way I kind of felt betrayed by the company."

Jindal rips Rand Paul but avoids real answers on ISIS



Bobby Jindal is Floating Down the Denial
  • Jindal displayed phony outrage and attacked Rand Paul on ISIS.  
  • What Jindal and the other War Hawks refuse to address a simple question:  "Where are the Islamist Syrian rebels getting their weapons and ammo resupplies from for a war that has lasted for years on end?"  

(Real Clear Politics)  -  Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal says Rand Paul is unfit for the presidency after the Kentucky senator blamed Republican “hawks” for the existence and rise of the Islamic State.
“ISIS exists and grew stronger because of the hawks in our party who gave arms indiscriminately [to Syrian rebels], and most of those arms were snatched up by ISIS,” the 2016 GOP presidential candidate said on “Morning Joe” Wednesday morning.
A man in denial.
Paul’s comments prompted a quick response from Jindal, who said the libertarian lawmaker is taking a “weak” and “illogical” position that is championed by liberal Democrats. According to Jindal, America’s waning influence in the Mideast “emboldens” groups like ISIS.
“This is a perfect example of why Senator Paul is unsuited to be commander-in-chief,” the two-term governor said in a statement released by his office. “It's one thing for Senator Paul to take an outlandish position as a Senator at Washington cocktail parties, but being commander-in-chief is an entirely different job.”
Jindal, who announced the formation of a presidential exploratory committee last week, also took the opportunity to scold President Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for “exacerbating” the rise of ISIS.
Paul similarly jabbed the Democratic frontrunner on “Morning Joe” regarding ISIS – but took a different route than Jindal. Paul said Republican hawks like Graham and Arizona Sen. John McCain “loved Hillary Clinton’s war in Libya, they just wanted more of it.”
Taking a page from his famously libertarian father’s playbook, he concluded that the hawks in his party have been “wrong” on foreign policy for the past two decades. “Yet they have somehow the gall to keep … pointing fingers otherwise,” he added.

Jihadists vs. the Assad Regime: Syria's Rebel Advance


In just a few short weeks, a newly-united rebel coalition has captured almost all of northwest Syria's Idlib province from government forces, overturning assumptions over the war's course, and threatening the regime's ability to defend its heartland. 


VICE News filmmaker Salam Rizk secured rare access to the jihadist fighters at the spear tip of the battle for the strategic city of Jisr al-Shughour.

Islamist Saudis execute 88th person this year



Chop Chop

  • Let's see . . . ISIS is the enemy because they are evil terrorist Islamists who behead people.
  • Meanwhile the head chopping Saudi Islamists who fund and arm terrorists are American allies.
  • I guess I just don't understand foreign policy.


(Agence France-Presse)  -  Saudi Arabia on Tuesday carried out its 88th execution so far this year, surpassing the total for all of 2014 despite activists' concerns that trials are not conducted fairly.

The interior ministry identified the latest to be put to death as Saudis Awad al-Rowaili and Lafi al-Shammary, who were convicted of smuggling amphetamines.

They were executed in the northern region of Jawf, the ministry said in statements carried by the official Saudi Press Agency.
Another Saudi, Mohammed al-Shihri, was separately put to death in the southwestern region of Asir for murder.

The conservative Islamic kingdom executed 87 people in 2014, according to an AFP tally.
Those beheaded this year include Siti Zainab, an Indonesian domestic worker convicted of murder despite concerns about her mental health, according to the Indonesian newspaper Kompas.
Jakarta summoned Riyadh's ambassador over her case, a rare diplomatic incident linked to Saudi Arabia's executions, around half of which involve foreigners.
Also among this year's dead are at least eight Yemenis, 10 Pakistanis, Syrians, Jordanians, and individuals from Myanmar, the Philippines, India, Chad, Eritrea and Sudan.
Saudi Arabia ranked among the world's top five executioners in 2014, according to rights group Amnesty International.
Under the Gulf nation's strict version of Islamic sharia law, drug trafficking, rape, murder, apostasy and armed robbery are all punishable by death.
Executions are carried out in public, mostly by beheading with a sword.
A surge in executions began towards the end of the reign of King Abdullah, who died on January 23.
It accelerated this year under his successor King Salman, in what Amnesty has called an unprecedented "macabre spike".

ISIS seized the Syrian regime's last big sources of income



Where are those "Moderate" rebels?


(Business Insider)  -  The Islamic State militant group is touting its newfound control of giant phosphate mines in Syria.
The Khnaifess mines, which sit along the main highway between Damascus and Palmyra, the ancient city overrun by the Islamic State last week, are the second-largest phosphate mines in the country. Syria has some of the largest reserves in the world; in normal times they produced about $60 million in revenue a year.
The Damascus propaganda branch of the Islamic State, also known as ISIS or ISIL, has published a series of photos of the phosphate mines as the latest example of the group's growing power.
It is unclear whether ISIS has the required logistics and expertise to operate the mines, let alone export the phosphate, given that a significant percentage of Syria’s phosphates is bought by the EU. Syria is among the world's largest exporters of the rock, but the war has marred its ability to mine and market its supply.
ISIS has sold oil and antiquities on the black market and relies on those sales, along with protection money and local taxes, to fund its system. ISIS has in the past advertised for engineers to come work on the refineries it has captured, in some cases offering salaries starting at $200,000.
In 2011, the mines were responsible for about 1.6% of the world's supply of phosphate rock and ranked ninth in the world in terms of the volume of its phosphate production. In the first half of 2014, the General Company for Phosphate and Mines reported sales of $30 million on production of almost 500,000 tons, down from 2 million tons in 2011.
"With the suspension of oil exports, phosphates represented one of the last sources of income of the state," according to Syria Report, an online business weekly.

Conservatives plan to block online porn


"You would not censor me, but Conservatives want to."


Conservatives Act to Censor the Internet

  • Thought Crime  -  Using a "Think of the Children" campaign the British Conservative Party tries to sink their claws deeper into controlling Internet content.


(RT News)  -  Prime Minister David Cameron’s plans to automatically block online pornography may soon be made illegal under EU law, a leaked memo has revealed.

Cameron proposes to introduce legislation forcing internet service providers (ISPs) to enact filters which block adult material by default unless customers “opt-out” – a scheme critics have described as censorship.


Major ISP Sky broadband and public Wi-Fi provider Friendly WiFi already have automatic blocks in place on their service.

A leaked policy document from Brussels, dated May 17, suggests the EU will put an end to both existing and proposed parental controls in a move guaranteed to rile growing anti-EU sentiment in the Conservative Party.

The memo, which was seen by the Sunday Times, proposes that content filters should only be allowed when the “end-user” has agreed to them and if they have the “possibility to withdraw consent at any time.”

Cameron’s proposed measures have strong support within the Conservative Party.

The Conservative’s 2015 manifesto pledged to “stop children's exposure to harmful sexualized content online, by requiring age verification for access to all sites containing pornographic material and age-rating for all music videos.” 

Critics describe the proposed legislation as censorship and an attack on freedom of speech.

Jerry Barnett, CEO of protest group Sex & Censorship, told Wired magazine this month that politicians could use the cover of “protecting children from porn” in order to introduce internet censorship.

This should worry anyone who cares about online free expression,” he added.

Joint Chiefs Chairman: "U.S. blindsided by fall of Mosul"


"Ah! the Generalsthey are numerous, but not good for much!"
Aristophanes (446 – c. 386 BC)

Retard Alert!
  • As a military historian (see my other Blog), it never ceases to amaze me how fucking stupid and/or incompetent generals can be.
  • In this case we have the full on retarded Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff admitting in public that our "leaders" have no clue what the Hell they are doing.
  • An Alternate Theory  -  The generals know EXACTLY what they are doing.  The CIA and our Islamist allies Turkey and Saudi Arabia had flooded Syria with mountains weapons to overthrow the government.  The idea that an ISIS army could move across a wide open and empty desert without being seen is not believable.  My theory is the U.S. and our allies are backing Islamists in both Syria and Libya.  But I am just a "crazy" Blogger. What do I know?


(Yahoo News)  -  Outgoing Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Gen. Martin Dempsey admits in a new interview that the U.S. military had done no contingency planning to prepare for the fall of Mosul when Islamic terrorists swept into Iraq’s second-largest city last June and seized control.
“Well, no, there were not,” Dempsey replies in the interview with Frontline’s Martin Smith when asked if there were any contingency plans inside the Pentagon for how to respond if Mosul were to fall to terrorists from the Islamic State (or ISIL, as the group is sometimes called.)
“So, look, there were several things that surprised us about ISIL,” Dempsey adds. “The degree to which they were able to form their own coalition, both inside of Syria — and inside of northwestern Iraq; the military capability that they exhibited — the collapse of the Iraq Security Forces. Yeah, in those initial days, there were a few surprises.”

Dempsey’s frank comments would appear to raise fresh questions about the performance of U.S. intelligence agencies in tracking the rise of IS as well the state of planning inside the Obama administration as it continues to grapple with a war against the Islamic State terrorists.
John Maguire, a former senior CIA officer in Iraq, called Dempsey’s remarks “stunning” and described his admission of the failure to do any planning as comparable to the intelligence failures prior to the Sept. 11 terror attacks. He noted that Islamic State terrorists had been on the march inside Iraq for months before Mosul was attacked and that IS had already seized huge swaths of territory, including the city of Fallajuh, the previous January.
“Good lord, he should resign,” Maguire told Yahoo News, when read a transcript of Dempsey’s comments for the Frontline show, “Obama at War,” which airs Tuesday night on PBS.
“The highest ranking military officer in the country is surprised by an issue that has been percolating for over a year?” said Maguire, who now serves as an advisor to the Kurdish forces battling the Islamic State. “That is breathtaking. Where in hell is the Central Intelligence Agency? We’ve got a $75 billion intelligence budget. There is no excuse for this.”
Dempsey is not the first senior official to acknowledge that U.S. intelligence officials and the White House itself missed the ferocity of IS’s advance. President Obama, in an interview with the New Yorker in January, 2014, referred to IS as the “jayvee,” as in a junior varsity athletic team. And Director of National Intelligence James Clapper acknowledged last September that U.S. intelligence officials underestimated” IS and the ability of the Iraqi Army to fight back against the terrorists.
“I didn’t see the collapse of the Iraq security force in the north coming,” Clapper told Washington Post columnist David Ignatius in a Sept. 18, 2004, interview. “I didn’t see that.”

Speaking of Incompetent
Bad and mediocre generals far, far outnumber the good ones.
.
In the case of General Douglas MacArthur (above) he was caught with his pants down twice and our troops and allies paid for it with their lives.  We view him as a great general based on the government media propaganda machine.
.
On December 8, 1941, the day after Pearl Harbor, most of the U.S. Far East Air Force in the Philippines was destroyed on the ground by Japanese attacks.  As an added bonus MacArthir's entire army of 151,000 was rapidly crushed by a smaller Japanese invading force of 129,000.
.
In the Korean War MacArthur ignored the powerful potential enemy Communist China as he drove his troops north toward the Chinese border.  Seeing a threat to their country the Chinese poured troops into Korea driving allied forces south with large numbers of causalities.  China threw in over 1.3 million soldiers.

SHOCK POLL: 81% of Muslims support ISIS



Moderate Muslims?

  • Yes some do exist.  But I will believe they exist in significant numbers when they invite the building of a Mormon Temple, Jewish Synagogue or Buddhist shrine in Istanbul, Cairo or Islamabad.


(Breitbart News)  -  In a recent survey conducted by AlJazeera.net, the website for the Al Jazeera Arabic television channel, respondents overwhelmingly support the Islamic State terrorist group, with 81% voting “YES” on whether they approved of ISIS’s conquests in the region.
The poll, which asked in Arabic, “Do you support the organizing victories of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS)?” has generated over 38,000 responses thus far, with only 19% of respondents voting “NO” to supporting ISIS.
Al Jazeera Arabic’s television audience is largely made up of Sunni Muslims living in the Arab world. Its biggest viewership numbers come from Egypt and Saudi Arabia, along with a large amount of satellite television viewers in the United States, according to research estimates. AlJazeera.net is most popular in Saudi Arabia, the United States, Egypt, Morocco, and Bosnia and Herzegovina, according to the Alexa webpage analytics site. Al Jazeera claims that it has over 40 million viewers in the Arab world.
The news that an overwhelming majority of respondents to the Al Jazeera Arabic poll strongly support ISIS may not surprise long-time trackers of the controversial network. The news outfit, which is run by Qatar’s ruling family and headquartered in Doha, has a track record rife with allegations that the organization supports the narratives of Sunni terrorist groups.
Following the September 11, 2001 attacks against the United States, the Al Jazeera headquarters in Doha proudly displayed silhouettes revering Osama bin Laden as a prophet-like figure, according to a New York Times investigation. In an Al Jazeera survey taken on September 11, 2006, 50% of respondents said they supported Osama bin Laden.

Court: "CIA torture report to stay secret"




We are better than this
- - - As usual government closes ranks to protect its members from the sunshine of public scrutiny.
- - - Government excuses to torture are bullshit.  We did not torture Nazi war criminals who loaded babies into ovens.


(McClatchy News)  -  The CIA can keep secret a nearly 7,000-page Senate report on harsh interrogation methods, as well as an internal agency review, a federal judge has ruled.

The complete 6,963-page report compiled by the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, and the related “Panetta review,” are exempt from the dictates of the Freedom of Information Act, U.S. District Judge James E. Boasberg concluded.

Though noting that “this case is no slam dunk for the government,” Boasberg in his 26-page decision Wednesday rejected the ACLU’s arguments for disclosure. The Senate committee report, he reasoned, remained a document under congressional control, and Congress made sure to exempt itself from FOIA.

“Congress has undoubted authority to keep its records secret, authority rooted in the Constitution, longstanding practice, and current congressional rules,” Boasberg stated.

The fact that the Senate intelligence panel had forwarded a copy of the full report to the CIA, Boasberg added, “should not be readily interpreted to suggest more wholesale abdication of control.”

Hina Shamsi, director of the ACLU National Security Project, voiced disappointment in the ruling.

“The direct, contemporaneous evidence shows that the full torture report is subject to the FOIA because Congress sent it to the executive branch with instructions that it be broadly used to ensure torture never happens again,” Shamsi said in a statement. “The Senate’s landmark investigation into a dark period in our nation’s history should not stay behind closed government doors, but needs to see the light of day.”

But the current Senate committee chairman, Sen. Richard Burr, R-N.C., said he was pleased.

Drudge rips GOP leadership: ‘Night of the Republican suicide’



This is why I am a RINO

  • Internet pioneer Matt Drudge hits the nail on the head.  The corrupt open borders GOP has no interest in the American people.  They exist to supply cheap labor, government contracts and tax breaks for Wall Street special interests.
  • Transparency  -  The Left-wing, big government loving GOP left me behind a long time ago.  I consider myself a Conservative RINO if you will.  A Constitutional Federalist.  In other words, a man without a party.


(Washington Times)  -  Media giant Matt Drudge blasted Republican leadership on Twitter Friday night after the GOP-led Senate approved a new free trade bill.

“Twisted DC: Electing Republicans is guarantee of MORE powers for Obama… of course none of them read ‘secret’ bill!” Mr. Drudge tweeted.

The Drudge Report founder slammed House Speaker John Boehner who expressed support for the bill after the Pacific trade bill passed the Senate.

“Disrespect for voters is staggering. Boehner will not make public ‘most important’ trade deal in history? Hides behind ‘classified’ status..,” Mr. Drudge tweeted.

“BOEHNER: We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it…,” another tweet reads.

Calling it the “night of the Republican suicide,” Mr. Drudge said a GOP loss in 2016 could be “traced to tonight’s trade deception.”

The Senate voted 62-37 Friday to endorse the president’s request for more negotiation authority. The bill would let Mr. Obama present trade agreements that Congress can either ratify or reject, but not change.

Syria launches air strikes against ISIS in Palmyra


A Syrian bombing run against rebels.

Warning to Readers
Using your reasoning power might be dangerous.
  • FACT #1  -  ISIS attacked and captured the Syrian held city of Palymra.  Now the Syrian government has launched 15 air strikes against ISIS trying to recapture Palymra.
  • FACT #2  -  The U.S. and our Islamist allies of Turkey and Saudi Arabia have shipped mountains of weapons into Syria to overthrow that government which is fighting against ISIS.
  • SO THINK  -  If the Russian backed Syrians are fighting against ISIS then who is providing the weapons and ammo resupplies to ISIS to continue their war against the Syrians?  Spell it out all together now:  C-I-A. 


(The Telegraph)  -  The Syrian government has launched at least 15 airstrikes around the ancient town of Palmyra as it tried to loosen the grip of Islamic State (Isil) militants there.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a monitoring group, said that at least four civilians were killed in the bombing raids, the most intense since the jihadists overran the city on Thursday. Dozens of people were reportedly wounded in the raids, and Isil is believed to have suffered losses when a military security building was hit.

Isil is accused of executing hundreds of people in and around Palmyra - a Unesco world heritage site - since it swept into the city last week after a lightning advance across the desert from its stronghold in the Euphrates Valley to the east. The group has released photographs showing beheaded corpses lying in the streets.

The Islamic State flag flies from Palmyra Castle

They have also taken hostages: in one recent set of images, 20 terrified soldiers could be seen, packed into a small room.

Video footage posted online on Saturday appeared to show damage to civilian homes on Palmyra’s outskirts, apparently the result of fighting between the regime and the militants. At one point, the camera pans across the horizon, offering viewers a glimpse of the majestic classical ruins that sit outside the city limits.

As well as devastating communities, Isil’s rampage from the Middle East and North Africa has resulted in the destruction of some of the region’s most precious archaeological sites. Last week, Isil hung its black flag in part of Palmyra’s ancient city, raising fears that its destruction would be imminent. Although the militants have tended to spare historical sites that do not depict deities, damage to Palmyra’s ruins could have propaganda value.

 Monday’s airstrikes targeted several areas of the city, including some close to the Greco-Roman ruins, a military source told Reuters.

The loss of Palmyra and its surrounding gas fields marked a major blow for Syrian president Bashar al-Assad, severing a key supply line to his embattled forces in the eastern province of Deir Ezzor and depriving his western strongholds from an important source of energy. The fall of the city is seen as indicative of a wider collapse among regime forces.
