The National Association of Former Border Patrol Officers is calling for a reversal of the Obama administration’s “autocratic” policy designed to grant amnesty to illegal immigrants without so much as approval from Congress, saying the President has shown "contempt" for the Constitution and the laws he is sworn to uphold.
NAFBPO Chairman and former Assistant Chief Patrol Agent Kent Lundgren went even further. In an exclusive interview with Liberty News Network national correspondent Andy Ramirez, Lundgren said lawlessness from Obama and the Department of Homeland Security needed to be urgently stopped.
“We have got to get the American people to look at this administration, rein it in, and say: ‘Hey, there are laws out there, you didn’t make them, you may not like them, but the Constitution says that you shall take care to see that they are executed, and you are not doing that. And listen up, we’re going to change things if you don’t,’” Lundgren said.
Andy Ramirez is the founder and president of the Law Enforcement Officers Advocates Council, the next step in advocacy after his previous organization known as Friends of the Border Patrol. Liberty News Network is an affiliated news group of The John Birch Society.

Ezra Klein writes that “libertarianism fails in health care,” by which he means he has identified something he does not like: in a free society, no one would force you to purchase health insurance, whether for yourself or for others, from the government or from private insurers. Klein doesn’t like that, because of something neither of us likes: it means some irresponsible and/or unfortunate people would end up with expensive medical bills or worse—dead.
But that is like saying, “The Yankees fail because they have a lousy third baseman.” (Do they? I have no idea.) It tells us nothing about how well the Yankees perform (how many lives Libertopia would save) on the mound (preventive care), at first base (primary care), in the outfield (acute care and new medical technologies), on double plays (care coordination), or by avoiding unforced errors (same). It tells us nothing about whether the Yankees’s left fielder plays shallow or the team otherwise adjusts to minimize the lousy-third-baseman problem (whether people would take better care of their health and more people would purchase health insurance), how well the Yankees perform at the plate (generating wealth, improving living standards, and reducing the cost of care to bring it within reach of the poor), or lots of other things that a free economy would do that I could graft onto this lousy simile.
Klein doesn’t even begin to examine how other ways of organizing health care, including our very own health sector, perform on any of these dimensions. And he certainly doesn’t tell us the score. All he tells us is what we already knew: that a free market isn’t perfect. Which is to say, he tells us nothing.

The Truth About Obama's Jobs Bill
On Thursday evening, President Obama gave a speech to a joint session of Congress discussing the jobs situation here in America. The purpose of Obama's speech was to convince the American public and their elected representatives in Washington to support Obama's new $447 billion 'American Jobs Act', which has a cost that is 49% larger than the $300 billion act most people were expecting. NIA believes this bill will do nothing to reduce unemployment in America and that it is nothing but another stimulus bill in disguise that will add to our budget deficits.
Obama's bill proposes a $4,000 per employee tax credit for businesses that hire somebody who was previously unemployed for 6 months or more, at a cost of $8 billion. At the same time, Obama wants to extend emergency unemployment compensation (EUC), which allows Americans who have exhausted standard unemployment benefits that last for 26 weeks to continue receiving them for between 20 and 53 additional weeks. EUC benefits are set to expire at the end of 2011 and continuing them through the end of 2012 will cost U.S. taxpayers $49 billion.
It is totally absurd for Obama to give employers money to attempt to hire people he is simultaneously paying to stay out of work. What makes this even more outrageous is that employers have an incentive not to hire recently laid off workers, when only those unemployed for 6 months or more will bring them a $4,000 check. If this bill is passed it will make the unemployment situation in America far worse than it already is.
NIA has heard from members who own farms and have positions on their farms available, but can't find anybody interested in working for them and filling the available positions. Every time they hire somebody to work on their farm, the worker purposely does a poor job and tries to get fired. Their sole purpose of getting a job is to convince their local unemployment agency that they are trying to find employment so that they can keep receiving unemployment benefits, when in reality they are trying to take advantage of the system.
Obama is right that any future recovery will be driven by our businesses and our workers, but if Washington wants to make a positive difference the only step it should take to improve our people's lives, is get out of their lives. It is impossible for any piece of legislation including Obama's 'American Jobs Act', to improve the employment situation here in America. Obama needs to remove any government programs already in place that interfere with the free market. NIA believes that if the U.S. eliminated all unemployment benefits and also got rid of the minimum wage, it would cause the unemployment rate to return to healthy levels.
U.S. employees earning up to $106,800 annually currently pay a 4.2% payroll tax that is scheduled to revert back to 6.2% in 2012. Obama not only doesn't want employee payroll taxes to raise back up to the historical level of 6.2%, which went into effect in 1990, but he wants to further reduce them to 3.1% for 2012. The annual cost of this employee payroll tax reduction is estimated to be $175 billion. In an attempt to help small businesses, Obama also wants to cut employer side payroll taxes in half from 6.2% to 3.1% on the first $5 million of payroll, while eliminating employer side payroll taxes for new hires. The annual cost of this employer side payroll tax reduction is estimated to be $65 billion.
NIA believes all payroll taxes should be eliminated. Americans who make payroll tax payments today are paying for other Americans to receive entitlement programs that they will never receive. Social Security and Medicare are already on the verge of insolvency. By the end of this decade, NIA believes Americans receiving Social Security checks will be receiving checks that don't have any purchasing power and aren't worth cashing. Americans would be much better off if they were able to use the money they currently spend on payroll taxes to accumulate physical silver instead. Only Americans with enough savings in physical gold and silver will be able to retire in the future.
Obama's bill also provides $35 billion in state and local government aid, $50 billion in infrastructure repairs, $10 billion for a national infrastructure bank, $30 billion for school modernization and repairs, and $15 billion in housing expenditures. Unfortunately, the jobs Obama's bill will create for construction workers, teachers, veterans, and the long-term unemployed, are only temporary jobs that will vanish after the bill expires, and the money printed to pay these workers will steal from the purchasing power of American workers who already have jobs today. There is no doubt about it that America's infrastructure is decaying and we need to build new roads and bridges, but this is something that we can't afford to do until we return to an economy that is based on production instead of consumption.
We need to return to a trade surplus and begin paying off our debt before we can afford to make investments into infrastructure. China can afford to build newer airports and faster railroads because they have a $254 billion trade surplus and $3.2 trillion in foreign exchange reserves that they are better off spending on infrastructure improvements than keeping parked in U.S. dollars that will soon be worthless.
Obama says that everything in his bill will be paid for, but NIA wonders how? The government is claiming this isn't another stimulus bill and Obama didn't mention the word stimulus once during his speech. The truth is, NIA believes all of the measures in this bill will have to be paid for by borrowing and printing money, which will increase our budget deficit, expand the money supply, and lead to massive price inflation.
The jolt that Obama is trying to give to the economy he admits has stalled, is the same economy he tried to jolt with the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, which put the U.S. $787 billion deeper into debt. NIA said at the time this stimulus bill was passed that when it failed to produce the results the government said it would, instead of admitting that stimulating the economy failed and reversing course, they will say the stimulus didn't work because it wasn't big enough and attempt to pass further stimulus bills by making new false promises.
Obama is lying to the public just like Congress recently did in regards to its bill to raise the debt ceiling. Congress deceived Americans into believing that in return for raising the debt ceiling so that the government can continue operating as it is today, "spending cuts" would be made to lower future budget deficits. These so called "spending cuts" turned out to be minor reductions to very large spending increases, with even these minor reductions not beginning until early 2013. Government spending is set to rise every single year until the dollar doesn't have any purchasing power left.
Obama said in his speech last night that, "while corporate profits have come roaring back, smaller companies haven't." The reason this is true is only the largest banks and the companies they do business with have direct access to the Federal Reserve's cheap and easy money. If the Fed didn't bail out all of the banks on Wall Street that made risky leveraged up bets with other people's money for the sole purpose of paying their employees huge bonuses, smaller banks would have acquired their assets in bankruptcy court for pennies on the dollar and be prospering today. Instead, small banks that made sound decisions were punished for doing the right thing. The Fed has made it even more difficult than ever for them to compete with the large banks that should be out of business.
If the Fed and Treasury didn't bail out Wall Street, the world wouldn't have come to an end like former-Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson conned everybody into believing. The truth is, we would be better off today because the bad assets would have been liquidated. The bad assets that caused the financial crisis of late-2008/early-2009 still exist today. The main difference between back then and now is, the size of the Fed's balance sheet has doubled to $2.862 trillion due to the toxic assets they purchased, and the world is now flooded with excess liquidity of U.S. dollars.
It is impossible for the U.S. not to feel the consequences of the money we squandered fighting wasteful wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and maintaining military bases all around the world. It is impossible for the U.S. not to feel the devastating effects of interest rates that have been left artificially low for way too long. When you have an artificial boom, that boom will eventually go bust and the more that is done to prop a phony economy up that is built on U.S. consumers spending money they don't have, the harder the economy will fall in terms of high unemployment, high inflation, and a total lack of purchasing power that will cause a permanent decline in the U.S. standard of living.
The fact that Obama felt the need to demand that Congress pass his bill 17 times in 1 speech, shows that nothing positive will come out of this bill for the average American citizen. The only people who will benefit from this bill are bankers on Wall Street who are in line to earn huge fees on the infrastructure deals that get funded by the new national infrastructure bank. While the official U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) unemployment rate in August was 9.1%, down from its peak in October of 2009 of 10.1%, the real rate of unemployment including both short and long-term discouraged workers is now 22.8%, up from 22% in October of 2009 and a new high since the Great Depression in 1933. By further impeding the free market, Obama's bill will further misallocate what little resources Americans still have left before hyperinflation arrives.

Team Obama embraces Hitler Youth tactics
Adolf Hitler's rule in WWII-era Germany, members of the Hitler Youth were encouraged to report any "unpatriotic" comments or activity they saw or heard from others, including their own parents.
Barack Hussein Obama's not-so-brilliant re-election effort is being led by people who embrace these National Socialist tactics: If someone says or publishes anything critical of the President, we are encouraged to "report them." Organizing for America, AKA Obama for America, has just debuted a web site that encourages and facilitates one citizen snooping on another. AttackWatch.com is a portal into pure facism.
Sound a little Orwellian? It certainly isn't American. These people clearly believe they should have total control over what you do, say, and think.
It wasn't long ago when Obama's minions were encouraging Americans to report "fishy" ideas, speech, and activity directly to a White House email account, email@example.com. It disappeared almost as soon as it became general public knowledge that Obama was attempting to collect such information. We hope this cynical, free-speech-squelching, idiotic idea dies a quick death, too.
But it tells you a lot about who these people are, doesn't it? Every moment that Obama and his liberty-hating crew are in power increases the danger to our Republic.

ObamaCare: Yet Another Federal Judge Says, 'Unconstitutional'
Yet another federal judge -- this one in Pennsylvania -- has ruled that the individual mandate in President Obama's health care overhaul is unconstitutional.
On September 13, 2011, Federal District Judge Christopher Conner found that the Commerce Clause of the U.S. Constitution does not give Congress power to require nearly all Americans to buy health insurance, whether they want it or not.
"The federal government ... is one of limited enumerated powers, and Congress' efforts to remedy the ailing health care and health insurance markets must fit squarely within the boundaries of those powers," he wrote.
If appealed by the Administration, Conner's ruling would be reviewed by the federal appeals court in Philadelphia.
Three federal appeals courts have already reviewed the constitutionality of ObamaCare. One in Atlanta voted down the individual mandate, one in Cincinnati upheld it, and one in Richmond, Virginia, let it stand by rejecting challenges on jurisdictional grounds. The Supreme Court is expected to resolve the disputes among the circuit courts either in the coming term (October 2011 through June 2012) or the following term (October 2012 through June 2013).
We can't count on the courts, however. This law must be repealed by Congress -- and replaced with a patient-centered system.

Speaker Boehner: Permanent Tax Hikes to Pay for Temporary Spending Not a Solution for Private-Sector Job Growth
At a press conference with Republican leaders today, House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) warned against using “permanent tax increases…to pay for temporary spending,” as President Obama has proposed. Following are video and text of Speaker Boehner’s remarks:
“The House is going to continue to work to create a better environment for economic development and job growth in our country. We’re going to consider legislation this week that would stop the government from telling companies where and where they cannot locate. And we’ll also have the Congressional Budget Office looking at the President’s proposal as we prepare for hearings in the House on his proposal.
“As a former small businessman myself, I can tell you that we’ve got a little different approach to creating jobs than our friends across the aisle. When you look at what we saw in the President’s pay-fors yesterday, we see permanent tax increases put into effect in order to pay for temporary spending. I just don’t think that’s going to help our economy the way it could.
“And the fact is, is that having talked to thousands of people over the August recess, and thousands of employers over the same recess, what the American employers want is they want some certainty about what’s happening in Washington, certainty about what the tax rates [are] going to be, certainty about what their health care costs and commitments are going to be and certainty about the regulatory onslaught that they’re under. These are the kind of things that I think need to be addressed if we’re going to create the kind of environment where employers will feel comfortable in adding more employees to their company.”
Obama Hates Poor People
OK… that’s a headline to get you to click through but wouldn’t that be the main theme on every evening news program if this was President McCain?
How do I justify that outrageous statement?
Obama has presided over the single largest drop in income for the poorest Americans.
The census data only goes back to 1968 so I can’t tell what big drops happened before.
Take a look at the chart below. It shows the % change in lowest quintile incomes (the poorest Americans) from 1969 – in 2010 dollars. This data is taken directly from the Census Bureau. More charts soon.

Permanent subsidies = political complacency or corruption.
THE QUESTION: It is accepted that man's carbon dioxide emissions are causing an amount of warming of the climate. However, the magnitude of any future warming is highly uncertain. The Inter-governmental Panel on Climate Change acknowledges that its understanding of a number of key natural climate drivers and feedbacks is ''low'' or ''very low''. Why is it, therefore, that the Fairfax press is reluctant to engage with and investigate this uncertainty with an open-minded impartiality, and instead continues to publish articles based on a rigid editorial agenda that 'the science is settled'?
