Lessons From The Lion City

The petite-autocracy of the Republic of Singapore had an immigration problem and popular resentment against an elite imposition of high levels of immigration.  Popular sentiment objected to the impact immigration had on Singaporeans and instead of fighting its people, the government responded.  Immigrants were taking jobs and driving down or stagnating wages.  And the government decided to respond to its citizens concerns and it's adjusting its immigration policy to favor natives in a measured and rational manner while preserving Singapore's reputation for openness to skilled, productive short-term and long-term immigrants who, unlike in America, contribute across the board to economic growth.

Singapore’s Immigration Struggles
At the end of 2012, Singapore could boast the world’s thirty-seventh economy, an almost negligible unemployment rate of 2%, and one of the highest incomes per capita among leading industrial economies. Yet any recent arrival to the Lion City quickly notes a seething undertone of resentment and dissatisfaction across significant segments of the population. The ruling People’s Action Party (PAP), which together with Japan’s Liberal Democratic Party is one of the two longest-serving ruling regimes in Asia, was returned to power in the last general election with its smallest share of the vote since independence.

Citizens had concerns, even unskilled laborers, such as taxi drivers:

“They (PAP) run Singapore like a company. They bring people from all over to come here and do our jobs,” said one of the many taxi drivers who act as a barometer of sorts, relaying to baffled foreigners the subterranean discontent of the local community in a country that has had its long traditions of political protest deadened by decades of PAP rule.
The driver’s disgruntled suspicion of foreign labor might seem misplaced in an economy with such low unemployment, but his misgivings are not entirely out of sync with recent developments. In 2011, of the 122,600 jobs created last year, more than two thirds, or 84,800 positions, were taken by foreign professionals, according to data from the government itself. Singapore already has a non-resident population of 1.46 million, and almost 40% of the island’s total population were born abroad. Although no serious analyst of Singapore’s political situation expects the ruling party to fall from power anytime soon, it is taken for granted among the general populace that its share of the vote will decline even further in the next general election.

Unlike the Republican or Democrat Parties, the PAP responded intelligently and rationally.  Instead of insulting and attacking its citizens, it took action:

The Men in White – as PAP politicians are known, after the lily-white shade of the party's campaign uniforms – were quick to perceive the shift in public opinion and have acted accordingly, tightening the requirements for those wishing to employ foreign-born workers in Singapore. Until 2011, those hoping to apply for a Personalized Employment Pass (PEP), a special category of work visa that is not tied to a specific employer, could do so if they earned an annual salary of more than S$34,000. Now the minimum yearly income for PEP candidates has been raised to $144,000 – more than four times what was previously required. Foreign worker quotas for companies in all sectors of the economy have been cut. S-Passes, the employment passes issued for mid-level employees, are increasingly hard to come by, given that after the recent change in quotas, S-Pass holders can now only constitute up to 20% of a company’s workforce. One British human resources executive confessed: “I’ve had to let go of many promising candidates after our S-Pass requests were rejected by the Ministry of Manpower.”
Since the adoption of these new restrictions, frustration among high-level executives has been mounting. Their main gripe with the immigration issue is that, in spite of decades of impressive economic stewardship and massive investments in education on the part of the PAP government, multinationals still have a very hard time finding promising local candidates for some positions, especially those higher up the corporate ladder. Worse, Singapore’s compulsory social security schemes raise the cost of local workers considerably.

Singapore wisely sets its immigration policy based on the contribution of the individual seeking to enter the city-state.  Other than the spouses and minor children of a Singaporean or of a Singaporean Permanent Resident, or the parents of a Singaporean, all immigrants, temporary or permanent, must meet strict employment, income, or investment based requirements before entering on either a temporary, limited, or permanent resident visa.  Unemployed or unemployable immigrants are unknown to Singapore, and there is no welfare class of immigrants.  This is in remarkable contrast to the United States where immigration brings in large numbers of welfare recipients and criminals.  The United States has its own native criminal classes, Congress and blacks.  The Lion City has neither, and wisely chose not to import a criminal class. Well, it sort of does, Malays, but it keeps them and their Islamism under strict controls.

However, Singapore is quite distinct from the United States in that it has an immigration policy designed to benefit the nation and the nation's people, not loud segments of the population, such as the Slave Power or Cultural Marxists.  Undoubtedly part of this is the benefit of living in a Confucian society, the PAP has the Mandate of Heaven, and is acting in a manner to keep that mandate: Controlling a rapacious merchant class, maintaining respect for law and order, ensuring a happy and prosperous population, and preserving its cultural heritage all while responding to the concerns of the populous and its indigenous cultural concerns, a sort of Confucian Republic. Not a democracy, not a monarchy, not an oligarchy, not an autocracy, but something different yet taking from all those forms of government and always acting in its national and citizen's interests.  It is something that the United States should examine, especially while there is a demand for immigration reform.  Our immigration certainly needs reform from one based on family relations to one based on employment and productivity that would support the nation, its people, and its culture.

ICE SVU Still Targeting The FBI

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) recently announced a multi-State indictment in a child-prostitution network, mostly located in the ever so multicultural San Francisco Bay Area.

SFGate July 30, 2013 by Henry K. Lee
12 Children Rescued In Bay Area Prostitution Sweep
Authorities rescued 12 children forced to work as prostitutes and arrested 21 suspected pimps in the Bay Area as part of a three-day, nationwide sweep targeting child sex trafficking, the FBI said Monday.
The Bay Area had the highest number of child prostitutes who were rescued and the most pimps taken into custody between Wednesday and Sunday in the latest in a series of nationwide sweeps, known as Operation Cross Country.
Across the nation, 105 children were rescued, and 150 pimps were arrested in 76 cities, authorities said. Detroit and Milwaukee had the second-highest number of child prostitutes rescued, with 10 each, the FBI said. Three teens were rescued in Hayward, three in Sonoma County, two in Oakland and one each in Concord and San Jose. Alameda County and Contra Costa County sheriff's deputies each rescued one juvenile in their respective jurisdictions.
Five suspected pimps were taken into custody in South San Francisco. Four suspected pimps were arrested in Sonoma County, two each in Oakland, Hayward and Contra Costa County and one each in Concord, Daly City, San Jose and San Mateo.

In Oakland, two girls were rescued along International Boulevard in the Fruitvale District, said Oakland police Lt. Kevin Wiley. "Our goal is to get as many girls off the streets as possible, to rescue these children." Wiley said children are the most vulnerable victims because "they bring the most money, and they're easier to manipulate."

If this sounds familiar, and I am not referring to the penchant for the San Francisco Bay Area to have all too many perverts living there, but that the FBI sting, Operation Cross Country, is no different from the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Special Victims Unit's (ICE SVU) Operation iGuardian, where ICE SVU displayed its penchant for acting outside its jurisdiction and poaching on other agencies, like the FBI or the DEA.

An interesting aside is that it took the FBI, and not the Attorney General for the State of California, Kamala Harris, to investigate child sex trafficking.  Harris, the former District Attorney for the City and County of San Francisco, was well known for her toleration of child and other prostitution, mostly because in the City and County of San Francisco, child prostitution involved alien prostitutes and alien procurers.  She did not want attention brought to the new people she and the Democrat Party were trying to elect.  Also of note, ICE SVU, despite being the sex police, ignores alien prostitution in the San Francisco and environs in favor of crimes not involving illegal aliens.  The San Francisco Bay Area is a magnet for alien prostitutes, both those here legally and those here illegally.  But they are unmolested so to speak by ICE SVU as it does not want to get involved in arresting aliens.  It has much more important work to do, such as searching flea markets for stolen goods.

Coming Soon To Your Radio Station

The United States government will soon be producing and distributing in the United States foreign language broadcasts.  It is not enough that we have endless Spanish radio and the twin evils of Univision and Telemundo, but at taxpayer expense?

Foreign Policy July 14, 2013 by John Hudson 
U.S. Repeals Propaganda Ban, Spreads Government-Made News to Americans 
For decades, a so-called anti-propaganda law prevented the U.S. government's mammoth broadcasting arm from delivering programming to American audiences. But on July 2, that came silently to an end with the implementation of a new reform passed in January. The result: an unleashing of thousands of hours per week of government-funded radio and TV programs for domestic U.S. consumption in a reform initially criticized as a green light for U.S. domestic propaganda efforts. So what just happened? 
Until this month, a vast ocean of U.S. programming produced by the Broadcasting Board of Governors such as Voice of America, Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty, and the Middle East Broadcasting Networks could only be viewed or listened to at broadcast quality in foreign countries. The programming varies in tone and quality, but its breadth is vast: It's viewed in more than 100 countries in 61 languages. The topics covered include human rights abuses in Iran, self-immolation in Tibet, human trafficking across Asia, and on-the-ground reporting in Egypt and Iraq. 
The restriction of these broadcasts was due to the Smith-Mundt Act, a long-standing piece of legislation that has been amended numerous times over the years, perhaps most consequentially by Arkansas Senator J. William Fulbright. In the 1970s, Fulbright was no friend of VOA and Radio Free Europe, and moved to restrict them from domestic distribution, saying they "should be given the opportunity to take their rightful place in the graveyard of Cold War relics." Fulbright's amendment to Smith-Mundt was bolstered in 1985 by Nebraska Senator Edward Zorinsky, who argued that such "propaganda" should be kept out of America as to distinguish the U.S. "from the Soviet Union where domestic propaganda is a principal government activity."

And the theory is that not only do the foreigners need this information, but the hyphenated Americans and immigrants need it as well.

A former U.S. government source with knowledge of the BBG says the organization is no Pravda, but it does advance U.S. interests in more subtle ways. In Somalia, for instance, VOA serves as counter programming to outlets peddling anti-American or jihadist sentiment. "Somalis have three options for news," the source said, "word of mouth, al-Shabab, or VOA Somalia." 
This partially explains the push to allow BBG broadcasts on local radio stations in the United States. The agency wants to reach diaspora communities, such as St. Paul, Minnesota's significant Somali expat community. "Those people can get al-Shabab, they can get Russia Today, but they couldn't get access to their taxpayer-funded news sources like VOA Somalia," the source said. "It was silly."

One wonders why anyone living in America needs an American government source of news for information about another country.  What does it matter that Somalis in America have government supplied information?  And if it is as bad as public radio in this country, won't it be counterproductive anyway?

But the real threat is that the U.S. government will be in the business of producing and distributing for a domestic audience news directed at specific language groups who are clearly not assimilating if they are so concerned about their former country of residence.  Also most likely the news broadcaster, the BBG will begin to slant news coverage to the domestic foreign presence, attempting to influence how they act in America, and the most likely manner is pandering to ethnic grievance mongering a la Al Sharpton.  And they will be doing it in a foreign language, explicitly discouraging the learning of English and assimilation.  This is just another aspect of how the Federal government wants to elect a new people.

ICE SVU Continues Its War Not On Illegal Immigration But On The DEA

Rivalries between Federal agencies are notorious.  The Central Intelligence Agency and the Federal Bureau of Investigation were known for their mutual hostility.  Both agencies had a tendency to poach on the other's turf even though the CIA was an overseas intelligence gathering agency and the FBI a law enforcement agency.  Their paths did cross routinely though in the area of counter-intelligence and the necessity for operations against foreign intelligence agencies operating in the U.S. as well as operations against foreign diplomatic posts domestically.

And the conflict between the late unlamented U.S. Customs Service (USCS) and the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) though not known to the public was always a source of conflict at Ports-of-Entry and in field operations.

Some conflicts are inherent in the missions.  In the case of the CIA and FBI, there was the fact that crimes by CIA officials were sometimes investigated by the FBI. The USCS and INS had in many areas a joint mission, but different managements.  USCS and INS Inspectors would do the same job on primary inspection at land POEs, at airport POEs, the would work in close proximity, wearing different uniforms and enforcing different laws that would overlap.  The conflict was continuous and always aggravated by low level managers who were jealous of their different missions, always looking for an excuse to complain about the other.  But generally, each agency had a mission and kept to it.

However, things are changing.  U.S. Customs and Immigration Enforcement Special Victims Unit, this blog's facetious referral to U.S. Customs and Immigration Enforcement (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), the supposed investigative arm of the Department of Homeland Security.  Facetious because ICE SVU is an agency with a mission that it does not want, the enforcement of the immigration laws of the United States.  Important crimes like passport and visa fraud, immigration benefit fraud, illegal immigration, worksite enforcement, counterfeit immigration documents and alien smuggling.

Since the coming of John Morton though, ICE SVU has sought to replace the immigration enforcement mission with anything but immigration enforcement, such as sex crimes, child pornography, prostitution, bunko, and the sale of stolen goods at flea markets.  But no where is it expanding more than at the expense of the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), the agency charged with enforcing drug laws in the United States and internationally under Title 21 of the United States Code.  ICE SVU's customs authority only authorizes enforcement of drug laws as they related to drugs seized at the border or followed into the United States.  Otherwise the DEA holds jurisdiction.

And it continues:

Lake County Men Charged With Using Teenage Girl In Marijuana Growing Operation 

Two Lake County residents have been charged in federal case involving a large-scale marijuana growing operations in which a 15-year-old girl allegedly was held against her will and used to process marijuana plants. 
According to the complaint filed in U.S. District Court in San Francisco, the girl, a runaway from Los Angeles, was sexually abused and confined at times in a metal toolbox. 
Ryan Balletto and Partick Pearmain were charged Monday with conspiracy to manufacture and distribute more than 1,000 marijuana plants and with using a minor in a drug operation, according to a federal Department of Justice news release. Balletto also is charged in the complaint with possession of a firearm in furtherance of a drug trafficking crime. 
According to the complaint, in December 2011, the Department of Homeland Security, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, began an investigation into suspected narcotics trafficking by Balletto and others.

Marijuana grown in Lake County, CA are a Title 21 violation, not a violation of Title 19, the United States Code dealing with smuggling and imports.  In any event, a local agency was involved in the initial investigation.

On April 12 of this year, a Lake County sheriff's detective conducted a flyover of the property Balletto owned in the Ogulin Canyon area outside of Clear Lake and identified two greenhouses on the property that were believed to be full of marijuana plants, according to the complaint. 
As authorities were preparing to apply for and execute a search warrant, they received an urgent request from the Los Angeles Police Department for help regarding the missing teenage girl who they believed was being against held her will on Balletto's Lake County property. 
Deputies went to Balletto's residence, where they spoke with a woman who said she was Balletto's girlfriend and asked her about the missing juvenile and Balletto, but the deputies reported that the woman was uncooperative. 
The next morning, a female called the Lake County Sheriff's Office's dispatch center, identified herself as the juvenile and told the dispatcher that she was OK. She then made a second call to the dispatch center and said she was with someone named "Ryan" in Sacramento. 
Authorities determined that the call was made from a cell phone and tracked the signal to Sacramento. Later that evening, West Sacramento police officers found the 15-year-old girl at a hotel in West Sacramento and took her into custody.

It is clear that local law enforcement agencies had the investigation well in hand, as well as rescued the kidnapped girl, which, even if there was a Federal interest, which is not clear, the FBI was the Federal agency responsible for enforcing the Federal kidnapping statute, 18 USC 1201.  In any event, the Federal nexus for either crime was minimal and even more egregious, local law enforcement agencies were exercising the police power of the States quite effectively. 

Why was there any involvement by the Federal agency charged with customs and immigration law enforcement?  Clearly because ICE SVU wants to avoid arresting the 2.5 million illegal aliens in California.  Can anyone say impeachment?

Steve Sakuma Back In The News

Our friend Steve Sakuma is back in the news.  If you remember he appeared in this blog two years ago openly admitting that he prefers illegal aliens to legal workers.

Let's refresh Sakuma-san's opinion on illegal aliens:

"These illegal immigrants, or whatever you want to call them, have been around for a long time," Sakuma said. "And guess what? They're not bad. They're just making a living. They're here doing what other people won't do. If you think that white America is going to come out here and pick these strawberries, you have been living in the dark for a long time."

"Whatever you want to call them..."  Interesting.  Clearly Sakuma-san wants the cheapest labor.  And guess what?  Two years later, the laborers that Sakuma-san says are "not bad" suddenly are just that, bad, well bad for business, especially if they go on strike or can be replaced by cheaper legal guest workers, the infamous H-2A workers.

The Seattle Times July 23, 2013 by Lornet Turnbull and Anna Boiko-Weyrauch
Striking Farmworkers Afraid Of Guest-Worker Program
BURLINGTON — Labor unrest between a Skagit Valley berry farm and its migrant workers that led to recent work stoppages escalated Wednesday with workers saying they have been evicted from the farm’s housing.
Early morning talks over wages between the 270 workers and Sakuma Bros. Farms apparently broke down after the two sides could not come to an agreement over what they should be paid per pound for the blueberries they pick.
The striking farm workers, mostly indigenous Mixteco and Trique Mexicans who migrate each year from California, had made repeated demands over wages, working conditions and other issues.
But at the core of their angst is the pending arrival early next month of some 160 guest workers from Mexico to prop up the farm’s existing workforce...
While growers in Eastern Washington have used the federal government’s H-2A program over the last five years to legally bring guest workers into the country, this is the first year Sakuma or any Western Washington fruit grower will use it.

It is good to see Sakuma-san suddenly get right with the law, but you know that it is temporary.  The moment the illegals realize their place in Sakuma-san's world of rootless cosmopolitanism, and then drop their outrageous demands, I am certain Sakuma-san will go with their cheaper labor, the law be damned.  But it is nice to see the conflict between two groups of Mexicans.  It certainly gives lie to the United Front against whitey.

In a major announcement unrelated to the enforcement of the immigration and customs laws of the United States, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Special Victims Unit (ICE SVU) announced the arrest of several Americans for sex crimes traditionally investigated by State and local law enforcement agencies.

U.S. Immigration And Customs Enforcement News Releases
255 Child Predators Arrested, 61 Victims Identified During Operation iGuardian
WASHINGTON — Two hundred and fifty-five child predators were arrested and 61 victims of child sexual exploitation identified during a five-week operation conducted by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) and Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) task forces across the United States and its territories.
Operation iGuardian, which ran May 28 to June 30, was a surge operation conducted as part of HSI's Operation Predator to identify and rescue victims of online sexual exploitation, and to arrest their abusers as well as others who own, trade and produce images of child pornography.
"Protecting our youth in the digital age requires all of us to be on the lookout for child predators abusing and extorting victims online," said ICE Director John Morton.
"Children and parents need to understand that not everyone online is who they say they are. Child abusers prowl social media looking for opportunities to force young people into sexual exploitation through guile, deceit, and extortion. We want children to know that it's wrong for any adult to solicit or pressure them for sex and that the law is on their side."

Interestingly enough, ICE SVU did have one case involving an alien, but that alien was outside the special territorial and maritime jurisdiction of the United States, in a place called Mexico.

Eduardo Arturo Romero Barrios, a Mexican national, 33, was arrested June 26, by the Mexican Attorney General's Office with the assistance of the Mexican Federal Police in Monterrey, Mexico. The arrest followed a lead by HSI Mexico City and the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children from a social media provider about a user who was pretending to be a young teenage girl in order to elicit provocative images from minors via the social networking site. 

So, ICE SVU is now the Mexican SVU as well.  That is certainly good news.  It is not as if the United Mexican States (that is Mexico's proper name) is an independent country or something.  ICE SVU will do anything to avoid arresting the 20 million illegal aliens in the United States, even do Mexico's police work for it, as well as that of the State of Maryland, the City of Los Angeles, that of the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico.

More ICE SVU Fail

The continuing saga of diploma mills for alien students continues, with no action by U.S. Customs and Immigration Enforcement Special Victims Unit (ICE SVU).  The University of Northern Virginia (UNV) was ordered shut down, not by ICE SVU, but by the State Council for Higher Education of Virginia (SCHEV).

Center For Immigration Studies July 18, 2013 by David North
Virginia, Not ICE, Closes Suspect University of Northern Virginia
The University of Northern Virginia (UNVA) — a very marginal institution that relied heavily on foreign students, notably those from India, and that was raided two years ago by Immigration and Customs Enforcement — was closed Wednesday, July 17, by the State of Virginia, not by ICE.
As is all too often the case, an institution outside the immigration business has stepped in and done the work that should have been done by the Department of Homeland Security, as the Securities and Exchange Commission did recently in a $145 million immigrant investor (EB-5) fraud case I described in an earlier blog. 
The State Council for Higher Education of Virginia (SCHEV) issued a cease and desist order to UNVA yesterday on non-immigration-related grounds; it did so because, despite years of warnings, the institution could not secure accreditation from a U.S. Department of Education-recognized accreditation agency. Kirsten Nelson, a press officer for SCHEV, confirmed the action over the phone with me that afternoon.

The problem continues, as other diploma mills remain open, such as Herguan University, despite indictment of its owner.  More importantly, their students remain, mostly illegally, as these universities cannot attract students capable of doing university level work as these institutions have no academic standards, existing to sell legal status and employment authorization to the  academic bottom of the barrel.

It is a certain lesson John Boehner who appears to think that he can trust Barack Hussein Obama to enforce any amnesty bill with "the toughest enforcement provisions" in history.  If ICE SVU refuses to close openly fraudulent diploma mills, do you think he will build a fence?

Administrative Amnesty Expanding

Obama fears that amnesty is dead in the House of Representatives and has told a group of Mexicans that they should not expect anything before August.  That is the good news.  The bad news  is that he told Mexican viewers of Univision that he probably can't legalized all the illegal aliens.

WaPo July 17, 2013 by Aaron Blake
Obama: I ‘Probably’ Can’t Legalize Immigrants Myself
President Obama said in an interview with Univision airing Tuesday that he “probably” cannot legalize illegal immigrants by executive order — a decision he might be faced with if Congress fails to pass comprehensive immigration reform.
“Probably not,” Obama said, according to a transcript. “I think that it is very important for us to recognize that the way to solve this problem has to be legislative. I can do some things and have done some things that make a difference in the lives of people by determining how our enforcement should focus.”

That is even a less definitive response than the last time, when just before the DREAM Act Administrative Amnesty was imposed by executive fiat, he flatly denied he could do anything to help that one particular group of illegal aliens.

However, his intent is clear.  In Arizona two convicted felons were given an administrative amnesty and informed that their work permits would be renewable indefinitely.

U.S. Dropping Bid To Deport 2 Arrested In Arpaio Sweep
When sheriff’s deputies raided the Phoenix car wash where Carlos and Sandra Figueroa worked, the couple hid behind a counter in the waiting room, sure they would be deported and worried they might not see their U.S.-born daughter again.
This week, as their date in Immigration Court drew closer, Carlos said he felt that anguish again. He would wake up in the middle of the night wondering what would happen if his family were sent to Mexico.
Instead, the Figueroas got word that officials have asked a judge to drop their deportation case.
At a court hearing this morning, a federal judge is expected to grant the request.
If that happens, the couple, both 38 and parents to two U.S.-born daughters, will have permission to live and work in the country indefinitely.

Previously, the immigration court part of the Administrative Amnesty, that part where U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) was dropping already filed and obviously obtaining deportation orders.  However, those illegal aliens, unlike the DREAM Act Administrative Amnesty illegal aliens, would not get any status or employment authorization.

However, the Regime has changed that and is now granting employment authorization to those illegal aliens who get their charges dropped.

The big lie though is that this is "smart" immigration enforcement.

But to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the two are low-priority immigrants, on whom the limited resources of the federal government were not worth spending.
“ICE is focused on sensible, effective immigration enforcement that prioritizes the removal of criminal aliens and egregious immigration law violators,” the agency said in an e-mail to The Republic announcing its intention to close the case.

However, ICE has already spent thousands of dollars and untold man-hours on the Figueroas.  There is no savings by failing to deport them.  They could be quickly and easily removed as the border is just a short bus ride away from Maricopa County.  But the revolution is that this group of illegals now has employment authorization, which is itself amnesty.

Rachel Jeantel Confirms The Worst About Blacks

The walking blob of fat, Rachel Jeantel, confirmed that Trayvon Martin struck the first blow at George Zimmerman. 

The Daily Caller July 17, 2013 by Jeff Poor 
Jeantel: I Believe Trayvon Hit First 
In an interview with the Huffington Post Live’s Marc Lamont Hill, Rachel Jeantel — a key prosecution witness and friend of Trayvon Martin — said she thought it was Martin who had landed the first blow in the altercation with George Zimmerman after Zimmerman tried to tried to detain Martin.
“In my mind, I believe Trayvon,” Jeantel said. “It was Trayvon because like I say, it was the headset. I know Trayvon. That headset [is] always over by his chest area. And I was on the phone. Why would Trayvon leave me on the phone if he wanted to start something? 

And more importantly, she confirms that random hate-filled violence is a black thing.

That’s a black — well, not a black situation, any teen situation — ‘I’m gonna call you back.’ Trayvon had not said nothing to me.

And, undoubtedly in error, also confirmed that Trayvon made it back to his baby daddy's girlfriend's home, then doubled back to attack Zimmerman.

OK, I’m at the back. I’m almost at my daddy’s fiancĂ©e house. Wow.”

This confirms the analysis by The Wagist of the timeline that showed Trayvon had time to return home and double back to launch his vicious racist attack on George Zimmerman.

This also confirms  James Fulford's early observation, before Rush, that Trayvon was motivated by hatred of homosexuals and was undoubtedly egged on by Jeantel.  It is clear that Jeantel has been supressing the truth.  Little by little, it is coming out.  Given the properly sympathetic interviewer, we may eventually get confirmation that the two discussed attacking Zimmerman and she is a co-conspirator.

Now That We Are Done Celebrating

Now that justice has been served, and before the racist Obama Regime begins their attack on the hero George Zimmerman, lets get down to brass tacks on the real reason why Trayvon Martin attacked George Zimmerman.

It is clear that the real reason for Trayvon's death during an openly racist attack on George Zimmerman is the absolute failure of Tracy Martin, Trayvon's father, to raise his son properly.  He failed to discipline his son as his behavior spiraled out of control into a den of iniquity; drugs, violence, illegal guns, and racism.

Yahoo News July 13, 2013 by Liz Goodwin 
Jury Finds Zimmerman Not Guilty 
Martin's father, Tracy, tweeted his thanks to supporters. 
"Even though I am broken hearted my faith is unshattered I WILL ALWAYS LOVE MY BABY TRAY[sic]," he wrote.

Nothing could be further from the truth.  Tracy Martin removed himself from Trayvon's life, abandoning him to whatever girl he was sleeping with.  The very night that Trayvon was killed during a racist attack on George Zimmerman, Tracy was out partying with his girlfriend.  Trayvon was left alone with the girlfriend's son with no supervision even after he had been expelled from school for serious crimes.  Even worse, Tracy Martin told police that upon arriving home late at night, and learning that Trayvon was not at home, Tracy Martin called his son's cellular telephone once, despite claiming later to the police that he called the cell phone repeatedly.  Just as he lied then, he also lied about identifying the screams of George Zimmerman as those of Trayvon.

Tracy Martin was a father and his responsibility was to raise his son.  He failed and Trayvon is dead.  His responsibility was to, if necessary, beat some sense into his child.  He did not do that.  If he had, perhaps Trayvon might be alive today, and, given proper discipline  may have grown up to be a responsible adult.  However it remains on Tracy Martin that his son is dead.  He certainly did not act like he loved his son.  He appears to have had no interest in Trayvon's life.  That is certainly not love, but it exposes Tracy Martin as a liar and a profitier.

Not Fucking Guilty!

Not Fucking Guilty!

Take That Al Sharpton!

Never Bring Your Fists To A Gun Fight!

Marriage Fraud Tsunami

The recent decision on the Defense of Marriage Act, the lawless Supreme Court overturned section 3 of the Act, ending any Federal definition of marriage separate from any particular State's definition.  Accordingly the Regime has mandated that homosexuals be given the right to sponsor "spouses" for immigration benefits.  The unanswered question is whether those homosexuals living in States that don't recognize homosexual marriage but get married elsewhere will be covered.  If they live in a State, or in the case of California, a state outside the Northern District of California that aren't covered by the fallacious decision by the notorious RINO homosexual Vaughn Walker, where homosexual marriage is not recognized, then they aren't married.  Time will tell, but given the lawlessness of the Regime, don't expect it to follow the Court's decision.

What it does do is open the doors to massive marriage fraud the likes we have never known.  For example see this indictment in the Northern District of California, coincidentally.

U.S. Attorney's Office for the Northern District of California Press Release December 10, 2012 
Former INS Employee, Six Others Indicted In Marriage Fraud Scheme 
SAN FRANCISCO - A federal grand jury in San Francisco indicted Andrew Chojecki, a resident of Poland, on Dec. 6, 2012, charging him with nine counts of conspiracy to commit marriage and visa fraud, marriage fraud and alien harboring, United States Attorney Melinda Haag announced. Chojecki, a naturalized U.S. citizen, is a former applications adjudicator with the U.S. Immigrations and Naturalization Service (INS), the predecessor agency to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services. 
Six additional defendants were charged with conspiring with Chojecki to commit and committing marriage fraud: Aaron Goldsmith, Beata Szkop, Pawel Karolak, Vito Scherma, Hector Vargas, and Malgorzata Zuk. Of these, Goldsmith, Karolak, Scherma, and Vargas were also charged with alien harboring. 
According to the indictment, which was unsealed today, Chojecki, 61, is alleged to have facilitated fraudulent marriages in exchange for cash payments from at least April 2010 through November 2012. The indictment alleges that Chojecki introduced aliens and United States citizens to each other for the purpose of their entering into fraudulent marriages to evade U.S. immigration laws. The indictment further alleges that Chojecki provided the aliens with fraudulent immigration forms that he prepared for them, sample questions that he anticipated they might be asked by immigration officials and guidance on steps they should take to make it appear that their marriages were legitimate. The indictment alleges that in exchange for these services Chojecki required the aliens to pay an initial lump sum at the time of the wedding ceremony, which he split with the U.S. citizen spouse, and additional sums to the spouse at the time the alien received his or her green card and again when he or she received lawful permanent resident status.

Over a period of years, dozens received legal permanent residence by the simple expedient of marrying an American.  The fraud is common and given its frequency, not often caught by the fraud investigators and adjudicators at U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).  Now that marriage benefits have been extended unlawfully to homosexuals, USCIS will be inundated by homosexual marriage fraud.  Since they are woefully unable to cope with heterosexual marriage fraud, the situation will only get worse.

Yet Again, Why There Are 20 Million Illegal Aliens In The United States

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Special Victims Unit (ICE SVU) is supposed to investigate immigration and customs law violations.  However, ICE SVU does not want to enforce immigration laws, so to keep its 2,000 or so Special Agents busy, it looks for other work.  Now it has decided that retail theft is within its jurisdiction.

NBC 6 South Florida July 9, 2012 by David Jeannot
Authorities Unveil South Florida Organized Retail Crime Task Force
Retail theft is a major cause for concern, but now a new federal task force has been formed to combat organized retail crime in South Florida.
“We are pleased to announce the formation of the Homeland Security Investigations-led South Florida Organized Retail Crime Task Force,” said Alysa D. Erichs, the Miami special agent in charge for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations, at a news conference Tuesday.
The task force is bringing together the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, Broward Sheriff’s Office, Miami-Dade Police Department, Doral Police Department and the National Retail Federation.
Their job is to put a stop to criminal organizations that steal millions of dollars of merchandise from local businesses and then sell the merchandise at flea markets over the Internet or export it illegally out of the country.
“Well, Miami once again is among the top 10 cities along with Los Angeles, New York and Chicago for organized retail crime activity,” said Wifredo A. Ferrer, the U.S. attorney for the Southern District of Florida.

Left unmentioned is that the State of Florida has an illegal alien population of 825,000 as estimated in 2010.  Retail theft is a local crime that is the responsibility of the various law enforcement agencies there.  Obviously the State of Florida is wasting millions trying George Zimmerman for a non-crime, rather than spend the law enforcement monies they do have on retail theft investigations, but that does not give the Federal government jurisdiction to investigate the theft and sale of stolen merchandise at flea markets.  A much simpler solution would for local law enforcement agencies to go to those flea markets and arrest the sellers.  That is certainly not what ICE SVU should be doing though.  They should search out some of those 825,000 illegal aliens and make some arrests.  Undoubtedly they could assist local law enforcement by those arrests as undoubtedly many of those thieves are aliens, both legal and illegal.

Give Alysa D. Erichs a call and ask her why she does not assign those Special Agents to arresting illegal aliens.

CBP Can't Do Its Job

There are long lines at the border.  So cities and other organizations are stepping up to subsidize the inspection of arriving applicants for admission.  In an never ending story, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) is short handed at Ports-of-Entry (POE), lines at airports and land borders continue to back up and the endless complaints of not enough aliens coming to buy houses, visit Disneyland, and buy stuff.  The usual suspects are the travel industry, realtors, ski resorts, and ethnic lobbies.

The fundamental problem is that CBP is and has been understaffed compared to numbers of arriving passengers and border-crossers, both American citizens and aliens.  Long lines at airports and land borders are the usual situation.  Also a problem is that infrastructure at airports and land borders has always been behind the curve.

Cities Offer To Pony Up For Shorter Customs Line
MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) — A ski area in northern Vermont and several other points around the country want more officers at border crossings and customs terminals, and they're willing to pay for it — not because they want to keep anybody out, but to get them in quicker.
The Jay Peak ski resort, the Miami airport and areas along the Mexico border in Texas are among those that want to keep trade and tourists flowing smoothly across the border. They hope they get picked as part of a pilot program that would allow for alternative, supplemental funding of border-crossing services, including private money.
The money could be used to cover salaries of additional staff, overtime and services such as inspections. Customs and Border Protection is reviewing submissions from more than a dozen places around the country and expects to choose five ports of entry this summer.
"On the one hand I don't think we should have to pay for this extra care, but I'm willing to do it because it just means so much to us," said Bill Stenger, president of Jay Peak in Jay, Vt., just south of the Quebec line. "I cannot afford to have our guests unnecessarily delayed at the border."
Border security — and, in particular, the number of border guards to provide it — is a central issue in the immigration debate...
Jay Peak draws 55 percent of its guests from Canada. They have other choices for skiing in Quebec, but Jay Peak's mountain is higher, with a bigger vertical drop.
Michael De Wolfe, of Montreal, used to cross between Highwater, Quebec, and North Troy, Vt., but has switched to a crossing linking Frelighsburg, Quebec, and West Berkshire, Vt., which is usually faster.
He has a place to stay, so he tends to cross in the late afternoon or evening when it's not busy. But he said he has encountered waits of 30 minutes on Saturday mornings.
"Those who go to Jay on a regular basis know how to avoid long border waits," he said by email...
"We have a very good relationship with our border officials, but they have budgetary constraints that they can't control from here," Stenger said. "I'm willing to buck up and help pay for it to help them do the job that I know that they want to do but they just haven't had the resources to do it."


El Paso, where the wait at the border can range from 10 minutes to several hours, had tried to tackle the problem itself in 2011 by raising tolls on three international bridges during peak travel times and giving the $2.5 million in extra annual revenue to the Department of Homeland Security for more Customs and Border Protection staff, but the federal agency couldn't accept separate funding.


Miami International, which sees 9 million to 10 million international arrivals per year, has been discussing with Customs and Border Protection for more than two years the idea of more agents to get international flyers through faster, airport spokesman Greg Chin said.
"We are the fastest-growing U.S. airport for international travel now at MIA," he said, and staffing "has not been commensurate with that growth."

But here is the crux of the issue:

The border needs to be safe, but it also needs to be welcoming, Stenger said, "and welcoming means a reasonable time to pass."

And just what do they mean by "welcoming?"  They will claim that it is in response surly CBP Officers (CBPO), the long lines, the minutia of the inspection process, and, more importantly, the laws against illegal immigration.

It is the last that we are concerned about.  It is well known today that 40% or more of illegal aliens arrive, are inspected, are admitted, but then overstay their admission.  That, of course, is of no concern to ski resort operators.  They, like travel agents, have no concern what illegal aliens do, including fly airliners into building.  They have only their own interest in mind, the calculate that they will not be one of the victims, but will profit from large numbers of aliens allowed to enter in the United States.  No matter to if they work illegally, deal drugs, or go on welfare.  Undoubtedly they even end up working service jobs at places like ski resorts.

And therein lies the rub.  The tourism industry sees an in to CBP and using the continuing failure of previous administrations and Congress to fully fund, by user fees, the inspection of arriving passengers and border crossers.  By funding an increase in inspection capacity and therefore processing more passengers and border crossers, gain influence over CBP and the inspection process.  

Note that they see it as a temporary solution as well.

Stenger is willing to pay to have extra staffing at the border on the weekends and holidays, which he estimates would cost about $1,000 a day. But he doesn't want to do it long-term.

So, it is clear that some seeking express service for their customers have plans.  They seek to neuter CBP, and after a short period of funding, demand from CBP what they paid for, the end of enforcement of immigration law at Ports-of-Entry.  And that is the usual story, he who pays the piper calls the tune.

The real solution to wait times, long lines at airports and land borders, is the full funding of the inspection process by increasing the airline passenger fee and institute a fee for pedestrian and vehicle border crossers at land POEs, something, by the way, the same enthusiasts for the entry of aliens oppose.  A border and the inspection of border crossers is an act of sovereignty, not merely bringing in more customers at what can be an incredible cost if it is not done correctly.

Illegal Voters Are Overwhelmingly Democrats

More information is out on alien voters in Colorado.  They are overwhelmingly Democrats.  That should be no surprise.  And a lesson to Marco AINO.

The Republic July 5, 2013 by Ivan Moreno
Most Of 155 Suspected Noncitizen Voters Referred To Colo. DAs Are Democrats, Independents
DENVER — Democrats make up more than half of the 155 suspected noncitizen voters that Secretary of State Scott Gessler is referring to prosecutors, according to figures released by his office Friday.
The party affiliation breakdown shows that 88 of the voters are Democrats, 49 are unaffiliated, and 13 are Republicans. Five others are from minor parties, according to numbers provided by Gessler's office to The Associated Press.

This is a lesson to those who claim that amnesty for illegal aliens will improve Republican prospects in upcoming elections.  This example of the party registration of presumably legal immigrants shows that the amnesty will bring huge numbers of Democrat voters.

Alien Versus Predator

All is not love during the pedophile and homosexual Pride Parade in San Francisco.  A gang of blacks, whose race was unmentioned in the press report, attacked, beat and robbed parade goers.

The black "community" is, of course, silent, as is the homosexual and pedophile community, as mentioning the race of queer bashers is unacceptable.  Even when their race is a religion.

String Of Robberies, Assaults After Pride 
(07-05) 12:25 PDT SAN FRANCISCO -- San Francisco police are looking for five men and a woman who they believe robbed and assaulted numerous people after the Pink Saturday gay pride event. 
In the most egregious incident - which was captured on video footage that police released Friday - one of the men robs a woman and then kicks her in the head after she falls to the ground, knocking her unconscious, said Officer Albie Esparza, a police spokesman. 
Police believe the suspects committed multiple robberies and assaults Saturday evening on Market Street between Castro Street and Civic Center. Police also believe some victims did not report the incidents.

Interestingly enough, given a white victim, there is no demand from Barack Hussein Obama or Al Sharpton for action by law enforcement.  I guess this unknown group of blacks will not get the Zimmerman treatment.

Telling, as in the case of the Muslim gay bashers, there has been no community outrage or rioting, as happens when any perceived gay basher is a white male heterosexual.  Also of interest is that no one in the black community has come forward to identify the attackers.

More Alien Voters

And they are undoubtedly Democrats.  The courageous Secretary of State of Colorado, Scott Gessler, has identified more aliens who voted in Colorado elections.

Fox 31 Denver 
Gessler Flags 155 Possible Non-Citizens For Voter Fraud 
DENVER — Colorado Secretary of State Scott Gessler, who is exploring a run for governor, has alerted prosecutors of 155 non-citizens his office suspects have illegally cast ballots. 
Gessler’s office sent letters to 4,201 people last summer asking them to clarify their status since last summer. 
Of those, 155 have voted in one or more past elections and did not reply to the letters.
Letters were sent to people who once showed proof of non-citizenship, such as a green card, when getting a driver’s license and then later appeared on voter rolls. 
“Under Colorado law, only citizens can vote in our elections,” Gessler said in a press release from his office. “We tried to prevent illegal votes before the election, but now we have no choice but to refer these cases to law enforcement for investigation and prosecution.”

Of course, the left is in denial.

Gessler is also using a federal immigration database, but critics say it’s not error-proof. 
Democrats have charged that Gessler’s efforts to curtail voter fraud are thinly veiled attempts to use his non-partisan office to achieve partisan ends, namely, lowering voter turnout among Hispanic voters and other traditionally Democratic-leaning constituencies.

Apparently if you are a Democrat, you are allowed to violate the law.

Contact ICE SVU Special Agent in Charge David Marwell and inquire if he will be arresting these illegal voters.

Not Just H-1Bs That Silicon Valley Billionaires Exploit

Driving down wages of high-tech workers is one of the goals of the current amnesty legislation by bringing in tens of thousands of mediocre Indian and Chinese computer programmers.  While Google, Facebook, and Apple obviously have an economic interest in the cost of highly educated workers, there remains the question of why they support the amnesty legislation that is directed at low achieving ill-educated predominately Mexican and other Hispanic immigrants.

Well, the local commie cultural Marxist rag gives us a clue.  It superficially harkens back to the days when leftists actually believed their nonsense about the working class being organizing principle in the communist revolution.  Something long ago dropped in favor of race, religion, and sexual preference as the vanguard of the revolution.  Adherence to the principles of proletariate however were a mere fig leaf for the real vanguard of the proletarian, the person of color.  But it did educate the discerning reader on one of the reasons that the Pirates of Silicon Valley support the comprehensive amnesty rather than the Republican alternative of mass increase of H-1Bs.

Outside the Gates: Unions Versus Big Tech 
Google's Mountain View campus is a sprawling checkerboard of manicured lawns and fountains around a cluster of sleek, blocky buildings. A small fleet of yellow and green bikes provides employees with an easy form of transportation along the winding streets and paths, and many of them lay scattered in various corners of the Googleplex. Buses pull in each day, squiring employees from their high-priced apartments in San Francisco. During lunch breaks people take yoga classes, enjoy concierge services, drink artisanal coffees, and wander around wearing the latest line of Google Glasswear. A squadron of part-time security guards forms a human moat around the buildings, protecting the machinery inside. 
It's that latter group that Samuel Kehinde worries about whenever he visits Google. A tall, lanky Nigerian with a seemingly indefatigable work ethic — his cellphone rings nonstop on the drive from Oakland to Mountain View, and he always answers — Kehinde worked as a security guard himself after immigrating to the U.S. in 2003, and spent two years guarding food stalls at the Public Market in Emeryville. "We did not have a union, so we had no benefits, no vacation, and I only made $9 an hour," Kehinde says, citing the host of factors that led him to join the Service Employees International Union. After successfully unionizing his peers at the Public Market, he quit to work for the SEIU full time... 
But he and other SEIU representatives haven't gotten any Silicon Valley companies to sign on, yet. So while Securitas Security Services has several union sites in the East Bay and San Francisco, its guards at Facebook aren't unionized. The same goes for Andrews International, which contracts with Oracle. Guards at the Pleasanton campus have union representation; their counterparts at the company's Redwood City headquarters do not. 
In June, the SEIU ramped up its campaigns to organize security workers in the tech sector, on the heels of successful contract negotiations in San Francisco and the East Bay. They'd set their sights specifically on employees of Security Industry Specialists Inc., a Culver City company that holds contracts with three of the "Big 5" tech companies on the Peninsula: Apple, Google, and eBay. 
Union organizers accuse SIS of unfair union-busting tactics and poor labor policies. They say it keeps the vast majority of its workers on a part-time or "flex" system that prevents them from earning enough money to support their families, let alone rent an apartment in Silicon Valley. Organizers contend that because the company doesn't provide health benefits to most of its workers, it's forcing them to rely on public clinics or state-issued Medi-Cal. So in a roundabout way, the richest tech companies in the world are outsourcing their health care obligations to taxpayers. 
Kevin O'Donnell, who directs communications for SEIU, says that many employees on the Apple and Google contracts have to live in single room occupancy hotels in San Jose, because they can't afford housing. Others shack up with their parents. He knows of middle-aged security workers who still need roommates. 
"Our organizers have heard all sorts of housing horror stories," he says. "You can only imagine that would happen in one of the most expensive housing markets in the country, combined with wages we see as low as $9 an hour. When you take those low wages, and the high price of housing, you're going to get people who live in subsidized housing, or who are couch-surfing." 
In other words, the same nickel-and-dime tactics that journalist Barbara Ehrenreich exposed, and other big-box retailers, is being replicated by the world's greatest innovators. Labor advocates say it's created a yawning and increasingly fretful class disparity in Silicon Valley and beyond. The wealth created by tech companies has raised property values enormously in both San Francisco and the surrounding Peninsula areas. A guard's $17,000-$19,000 annual salary won't pay for a one-bedroom in Menlo Park, or Palo Alto, or Mountain View, so most guards have to live in East Palo Alto or San Jose. In 2012, average apartment rental rates on the Peninsula hovered just below $2,000 a month, while median household income dropped below $100,000, according to the Silicon Valley index. Contract workers have an added cost burden of commuting to work, and they don't get to take the charter buses. 
The union believes that Apple and Google have the power to change this system simply by ordering the security company, SIS, to treat its employees better: Because SIS is desperate to keep those lucrative contracts, it will abide by any rules the tech giants set, union members argue. For its part, SIS has vigorously opposed the union, raising questions about its motivations and claiming it merely wants to have a wide sphere of influence in Silicon Valley. Although SIS spokesmen didn't want to comment on the record, they've provided a rebuttal on the company's website. They claim that the SEIU is targeting tech companies directly because it's failed to get workers to sign on.

Aside from the aforementioned Nigerian, we get a clue from the next security guard profiled:

The union has a living example of this disparity in the form of a soft-spoken, bespectacled 24-year-old named Manny Cardenas. He first joined the union in 2010, two years before landing a job at the Googleplex. Cardenas worked for a company called AlliedBarton, which posted him outside various tech companies by the San Jose Airport. A friend from a rival security company introduced him to a union rep, and Cardenas began attending meetings out of curiosity. 
Soon he would become an unlikely poster child. 
Cardenas, who lives with his parents and young daughter in North San Jose, has worked in the security industry for seven years. He took a part-time "flex" gig at Google last summer, clocking up to 40 hours a week at $16 an hour, enough to pay for groceries and gas, but not quite enough to support his 4-year-old daughter. Cardenas still uses his dad's health insurance, and his daughter is signed to Medi-Cal.

And it is not just security guards, a commonly contracted position.

Field explains that the practice of contracting hourly services out is de rigeur at most large Silicon Valley companies. "Big companies outsource a lot of things," he says. "Their security, their janitorial services, their food workers. They have a lot of temp workers helping do clerical work, as well." Indeed, two companies called ABM and Brilliant General Maintenance (whose workers are unionized) handle janitorial work at Apple and Google. Palo Alto catering company Bon Appetit holds the contract for Google's cafeteria, as well as the other large cafeterias in Mountain View.

Food service workers of course are predominately Hispanic, immigrants or the immediate descendants, and Kehinde is a Nigerian immigrant.  As one should know, free food, not just cafeteria staples, but high end food served 24/7/365 is now de rigueur at all high-tech companies.  It is a recruiting and retention tool for the higher end employees, and an easy way to fool even the high IQ elite.  Few realize that free good food is one of the ways Google and other high-tech employers convince their workforce to accept 60 hour weeks with no overtime.  Something that no self-respecting blue collar worker would accept, whether it be the lazy good-for-nothings from the UAW or a master plumber from United Association of Plumbers and Steamfitters.  Predominately white skilled blue collar workers would never work a 60 hour week for a free sandwich.

There, of course, lies the issue.  The ever do evil Pirates of Silicon Valley don't just have a high tech worker wage problem, a problem they have with a mainly white educate workforce that they are currently dependent on.  With H-1Bs they want to break the white educated class.  But with the general amnesty they want to break the lower end of the working class, the lumpenproletariat, as well.   It appears that for the billionaires at Google, even the $20 an hour they pay to their security guards is $15 too much.  But that $15 is the labor cost that drives the Pirates of Silicon Valley to support amnesty for the Hispanic lumpenproletariat and an increase in legal family based immigration to the United States.  It is all about driving down wages across the board.  

Of course, all the billionaires of Silicon Valley keep threatening to move every thing off-shore.  The real question is why they don't.  The real answer is that low wage Indians and Chinese just aren't that bright and do not produce the ideas and quality that white workers do.  The other is that corruption in both countries would mean that none of the Pirates could keep any corporate secrets.  Absent the remains of Christian civilization's emphasis on honesty and truth, the Germanic ideal of group loyalty, and the Greco-Roman ideal of rule of law, high tech could not survive in the patently dishonest cultures of China and India, the corruption, and disloyalty that both those civilizations produce is not conductive to quality products.  Only Japan would offer an alternative to the United States, but it does not offer cheaper anything, only a more expensive everything, even security guards.  In Japan, even food service workers are not illegal aliens, nor even a first step on the economic rung, but a solidly middle-class position where employees work hard, but have all the benefits of a modern society.

In the end, the Pirates of Silicon Valley will not rest until the United States is destroyed.  The only problem is that the brainiacs don't realize that there is no where to go once they destroy this country.  Hubris is a bitch, but there is no avoiding her.  She is as relentless as the Terminator.

The alternative explanation for why Zuckerberg and his cohorts don't support the Republican H-1B alternative is just that the Pirates are all obsessed with homosexuality and just hate Republicans who oppose sodomy.  Which is an entirely feasible explanation.  The Pirates all have a certain homophilia.  Not that there is anything wrong with that...
