A Vass company that secures foreign workers for agricultural and other work in the U.S. is accused of manipulating the worker visa program and illegally funneling people to companies.

A federal grand jury in Greensboro handed down a 41-count indictment last Friday against International Labor Management Corp., founder and owner Craig Stanford "Stan" Eury Jr. and president Sarah Elizabeth Farrell, who is Eury's daughter. The government is seeking to seize at least $1.1 million in property that authorities say was involved in the alleged illegal activities.

Kearns Davis, a Greensboro attorney representing Eury and Farrell, said they and the company "flatly deny" the allegations and will "aggressively defend" their operations.

Scenes from a militarized America: Iowa family ‘terrorized’

 Watch this video, taken from a police raid in Des Moines, Iowa. Send it to some people. When critics (like me) warn about the dangers of police militarization, this is what we’re talking about. You’ll see the raid team, dressed in battle-dress uniforms, helmets and face-covering balaclava hoods take down the family’s door with a battering ram. You’ll see them storm the home with ballistics shields, guns at the ready. More troubling still, you’ll see not one but two officers attempt to prevent the family from having an independent record of the raid, one by destroying a surveillance camera, another by blocking another camera’s lens.

GOA Action Alert: The Fight Against Obama Anti-gun Policies Continues on Multiple Fronts


And there is some good news!

The group Gun Owners of America has for a while now been sounding the alarm about the link between “immigration reform" and "gun control.” -- Kurt Hofmann, Examiner, Jan. 29, 2014

Barack Obama is ruthless in his efforts to destroy those he regards as his enemies. And make no mistake about it: Gun owners are Obama’s #1 enemy.

But your hard work is having a tremendous effect.

GOOD NEWS ON ANTI-GUN AMNESTY

Thank you all for all your hard work last week in contacting Republican legislators in anticipation of the Republican "retreat" held in Cambridge, Maryland.

As you know, Obama would like to add 8,000,000 anti-gun voters to the rolls through his immigration amnesty bill.

But when House Speaker John Boehner tried to sell Barack Obama's immigration amnesty proposal as the Republican leadership's position on the issue, he faced a full-scale rebellion on the part of Representatives whom you were contacting all week long!

According to some of the highly-secret information which leaked out to us over the weekend, Boehner's speakership may be on the line if he continues to push Obama's immigration agenda.

Since the retreat, there have even been published articles which seem to indicate that Speaker Boehner might be renouncing efforts to push amnesty reform.

Hot Air reported on Friday that, “Speaker John Boehner, in particular, surprised many in the audience [during the retreat] with his tepid words on behalf of moving forward” on immigration amnesty reform.

Likewise, Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) admitted on Sunday that Congress’ ability to pass an immigration bill this year is “clearly in doubt.”

So good work, everyone, in making your voices heard!  The leadership is just starting to get the message.  But we’ll continue to keep a sharp watch out -- and will remain steadfast in applying the heat.

Now, here are just a few of the current fights we are waging at the national level -- and one issue that needs your involvement.

ANTI-GUN CRAZY NOMINATED AS SURGEON GENERAL

Today, in the appropriately named Senate HELP Committee (Health, Education, Labor, Pensions), Senators will hold hearings on the nomination of Vivek Murthy to be Surgeon General of the United States.

Make no mistake about it:  Murthy is an anti-gun fanatic.   Not only that, as Surgeon General, Murthy could channel huge amounts of taxpayer dollars to "junk science studies" intended to prove that guns should be banned.

Murthy is co-founder and president of Doctors for America, an Obama-linked organization which has gone to great lengths to push gun control.

Both Murthy’s personal assistant and press secretary are fellows at a Leftist "think tank" supported by financier George Soros.

The Twitter feed of @vivek_murthy leaves no doubt about how eager the Obama nominee is to restrict gun rights:
1. Vivek Murthy @vivek_murthy Apr 21

Signs of progress-we got 20 votes in the senate in favor of gun violence legislation that we wouldn’t have had 1 year ago. Have faith #dr4a

2. Vivek Murthy @vivek_murthy Apr 21

Docs fired up to keep fighting for gun safety laws @Drsforamerica natl conference with @haroldpollack Brina Milikowsky, Eric Fleegler #dr4a

3. Vivek Murthy @vivek_murthy 21 Dec 2012

NRA press conference disappointing but predictable - blame everything in the world except guns for the Newtown tragedy. #wakeup

After the shooting in Newtown, Murthy’s group authored an open letter to Obama that urged restrictions on gun rights in the name of the medical profession, stating:

It’s time for common sense gun rules like background checks and banning assault weapons and high-capacity magazines, as well as a comprehensive plan to address gun violence including ensuring funding for research and data-collection on gun violence and ensuring that health care providers can ask patients about gun ownership in order to counsel them appropriately about safety measures.

ACTION:   Click here to Contact Your Senators and urge them to oppose Vivek Murthy's nomination as Surgeon General.


GUNS IN THE POST OFFICE

You don't pop the cork until they bang the gavel.  But, when the Senate Governmental Affairs Committee next convenes to mark up the Postal Reform Act, we are optimistic that Senator Rand Paul will have the votes to pass his amendment repealing the postal service's ban on guns in post offices and post office parking lots.

This, as from all over the country, we hear horror stories about law-abiding gun owners arrested for exercising their Second Amendment rights -- and others who are mugged because they are unable to take their gun on a late-night trip to the post office.

Of course, what the post office is doing is illegal.  But that’s no surprise.  After all, it's the Obama administration.  What else is new?

Legal or illegal, however, if we allow the gun ban to stand, people can then be arrested in post offices. And few of them will have the legal resources to contest that.

So thanks for all of your good work. We are cautiously optimistic that it will shortly produce success.

H.R. 3590 TO BE CONSIDERED BY THE HOUSE

Today, the House intends to try to slam through, under quickie procedures, H.R. 3590, the so-called Sportsmen's Heritage and Recreational Enhancement Act.

At its core, section 804 of the bill provides that wilderness areas (and other federal lands) are open to hunting unless Obama administration officials determine it's "necessary and reasonable and supported by facts and evidence" to close them to hunting. [See, e.g., section 804(d)(1).]  There are at least some who believe this would give Obama more, rather than less authority to close federal lands.

Some of the provisions, such as using Pittman-Robertson funds for firing ranges, are uncontroversial.  Some, such as electronic duck stamps, have been controversial to many of our members.  Even more important, in the 112th Congress, Senator Jon Tester's sponsorship of a similar bill was used to rally gun support for the anti-gun senator -- and played a major role in getting this anti-gunner reelected.

We expect many of our members may want to oppose this bill in the House.  But, at the very least, we are going to ask our Senate friends to condition its Senate passage on amendments embodying issues of real interest to gun-owners.

CORRECTION:  In our Friday alert, we misquoted one word from the President’s infamous “bitter clinger” statement in 2008.  What he actually said was that blue collar people from small towns bitterly  “cling to their guns or religion.”

Since SAFE Act, NRA Membership Doubles in NY, Becomes Largest State Chapter in Nation

 

Andrew Cuomo's gun control legislation has backfired.

Responsible gun owners in New York state criticized the liberal governor's SAFE Act from the start for its unfair restrictions that included upgrading misdemeanors in firearm possessions to felonies and banning AR-15 semi-automatic rifles. The strict legislation led to a staggering 1,200 felonies in the state. Now, however, other numbers suggest New Yorkers aren’t sitting quietly. Tom King, president of the New York State Rifle & Pistol Association, reported on his organization’s increased popularity:
The NRA affiliate saw its membership rise from 22,000 statewide to 41,000 since the SAFE Act was approved in January 2013, King said.
That’s not all:
The NRA headquarters in Washington recently informed him his state affiliate has now surpassed Texas and California to become the largest state chapter in the nation.

NC: FreedomWorks to endorse Tea Partier Brannon in state Senate race

Via LH


Conservative group FreedomWorks will endorse Tea Party candidate Greg Brannon (R) in his bid to face Sen. Kay Hagan (D-N.C.), sources close to Brannon's campaign tell The Hill.

Brannon, an obstetrician who has the backing of Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), will be endorsed by the national group at a Tuesday evening rally in Raleigh.

The endorsement could help propel his candidacy in the crowded Senate primary. Brannon is facing five other candidates including North Carolina House Speaker Thom Tillis (R), the establishment favorite and front-runner, as well as Rev. Mark Harris (R), who has the backing of former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (R). If no candidate gets 40 percent of the vote in the May primary, the top two vote-getters will face off in July.

CBO: Obamacare slowing growth, will cost 2.3M jobs

 http://www.politifake.org/image/political/1210/obamacare-government-snare-battaile-politics-1349989525.jpg 

The new healthcare law will cost the nation about 2.3 million jobs by 2021 and contribute to a $1 trillion increase in projected deficits, the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) said in a report released Tuesday.

The nonpartisan agency’s report found the healthcare law’s negative effects on the economy will be “substantially larger” than what it had previously anticipated.

Black mob violence in San Antonio: “Yes they were black.”

 

The local press had a lot of trouble with this one.

 

Cody Robinson left a San Antonio bar and was punched, kicked and finally knocked out by a mob of black people.

The local newspapers ignored the race of the predators.

The local TV news shows reported the attackers yelled ‘get the white boy’ and ‘knockout’ but they did not describe the alleged assailants.

Leading many to think the attackers might have been in Hispanic in this Hispanic Town.

Judge rebukes Obama's NSA lawyer

 

I just denied your motion to dismiss,” U.S. District Court Judge Richard Leon told Department of Justice attorney Marcia Berman.

“Do you understand that?” he asked, speaking slowly and deliberately, apparently straining to keep his patience.

The judge appeared frequently perplexed by Berman’s explanations Monday afternoon in the federal courtroom as to why the government was not prepared to argue its case after filing a motion three weeks ago asking him to halt further proceedings while appeals go forward in the nation’s biggest spy case.

Medal of Honor Roll Call: Audie L. Murphy

Medal of Honor Orders  

General Orders No. 65   WAR DEPARTMENT  

Washington 25, D.C., 9 August 1945  

MEDAL OF HONOR – Award   Section 1

I. MEDAL OF HONOR. – By direction of the President, under the provisions of the act of Congress approved 9 July 1918 (WD Bul. 43, 1918), a Medal of Honor for conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of life above and beyond the call of duty was awarded by the War Department in the name of Congress to the following-named officer:

Second Lieutenant Audie L. Murphy, 01692509, 15th Infantry, Army of the United States, on 26 January 1945, near Holtzwihr, France, commanded Company B, which was attacked by six tanks and waves of infantry. Lieutenant Murphy ordered his men to withdraw to a prepared position in a woods while he remained forward at his command post and continued to give fire directions to the artillery by telephone. Behind him to his right one of our tank destroyers received a direct hit and began to burn. It’s crew withdrew to the woods. Lieutenant Murphy continued to direct artillery fire which killed large numbers of the advancing enemy infantry. With the enemy tanks abreast of his position, Lieutenant Murphy climbed on the burning tank destroyer which was in danger of blowing up any instant and employed its .50 caliber machine gun against the enemy.

He was alone and exposed to the German fire from three sides, but his deadly fire killed dozens of Germans and caused their infantry attack to waver the enemy tanks, losing infantry support, began to fall back. For an hour the Germans tried every available weapon to eliminate Lieutenant Murphy, but he continued to hold his position and wiped out a squad which was trying to creep up unnoticed on his right flank. Germans reached as close as 10 yards only to be mowed down by his fire. He received a leg wound but ignored it and continued the single-handed fight until his ammunition was exhausted. He then made his way to his company, refused medical attention, and organized the company in a counterattack which forced the Germans to withdraw. His directing of artillery fire wiped out many of the enemy; he personally killed or wounded about 50. Lieutenant Murphy’s indomitable courage and his refusal to give an inch of ground saved his company from possible encirclement and destruction and enabled it to hold the woods which had been the enemy’s objective.

Five ways GOP leadership fights to lose House, forfeit Senate with immigration reform

Five ways GOP leadership fights to lose House, forfeit Senate with immigration reform

The good news is that Republicans are well-positioned to hold the House and take the Senate, and all they have to do is avoid taking affirmative measures to screw things up.  The favorable political climate springs from the fact that some of us fought, beginning in February-March, 2009, to kill the “bipartisan deal” on health care that was supposedly going to save the Republican Party from extinction.

You’re welcome.

As a result of this, it would take a blithering cretin to derail the GOP’s good fortune arising from the natural course of events.

Enter Speaker  John A. Boehner (R.-Ohio).

“Far-Right” Immigration Opinions Are MAINSTREAM, Dammit!

Via Ryan

The bar chart represents not only attitudes about immigration, but also people’s longing for intact, healthy communities.

The Daily Beast’s immigration enthusiast editor John P. Avlon is an idiot, but he just usefully expressed Main Stream Media conventional wisdom in a propaganda piece for the GOP House Leadership Leadership’s attempted Amnesty/ Immigration Surge sellout: “[T]he increasingly isolated conservative populist base is pre-occupied with resisting cultural change…[the Leadership]—and the country—cannot be held hostage by the impractical ideological fervor of 50 or so House radicals…” [Will Immigration Reform Be John Boehner’s Legacy, February 2, 2014. Emphases added.]

Another example: with the rise of Marine Le Pen in France, the mindless description “far-right” has been tossed with more recklessness than usual. Thus Reuters and the Guardian, evidently believe that Le Pen is “far-right” because she is “anti-immigrant” (and anti-European Union: France's National Front readies mass showing for local vote, by Mark John, January 9, 2014; French polls show surge in support for far-right National Front, by Kim Willsher, October 10, 2013]

BUT THE TRUTH IS EXACTLY THE OPPOSITE. Being what the MSM calls “far-right” and “anti-immigrant” puts you in the mainstream of sensible Western popular opinion.

Predicting World War III – Part 3 (The Counter-Revolutionary Trigger)

Via southwind

 

There has not been a civil war in America since 1865. What could possibly cause Americans to turn against each other today? We have previously mentioned economic collapse as trigger for a civil war.

A trigger, however, is not the real cause. The trigger is merely a mechanism for igniting a conflagration which has long been prepared.

The preparation is found in the class warfare rhetoric of today. It is found in the unbalanced racial politics, in the precise formulations of feminism. In many ways, these are carefully constructed instruments with which to divide the people of America; specifically, to divide women from men, blacks from whites, poor from rich, liberal from conservative, etc.

To divide America into two or more hostile camps is one of the objectives of the Communists. The attempt at division is pro-forma. A good strategist always attempts to divide his enemy’s forces so he can defeat them in detail, or turn them against each other. By making Americans believe that there is a struggle for power ongoing between men and women, blacks and whites, rich and poor, and by focusing the energies and emotions of women, blacks and the poor toward a final victory over a supposed oppressive and ugly capitalist system, a useful power-base can be formed with which to take control of America. This power base excoriates the man, the white race, and the rich. Such becomes “the enemy” of all others.

This is, to be sure, only a basic overview of the enemy’s strategic architecture with regard to American domestic politics. Firmly resting upon the fissures of sex, race and economic status, there are many additional nuances and complexities to be considered. The final objective of the strategy is to own the world. The means for achieving this objective is to defeat the United States. 

The intermediate objectives for achieving U.S. defeat may be enumerated as follows:
