Ever hear of FWD.US?
FWD.US was created by Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg. He has joined with "key leaders in the tech community to promote policies to keep the United States and its citizens competitive in a global economyincluding comprehensive immigration reform and education reform." (http://www.fwd.us/about_us)
Their list of supporters is a who's who of tech companies. (http://www.fwd.us/our_supporters)
Their team in Washington DC:
FWD.US has two subsidiary organizations, Americans for a Conservative Direction, and Council for American Job Growth. (http://www.nonprofitquarterly.org/policysocial-context/22211-has-zuckerberg-gone-conservative.html)
Americans for a Conservative Direction board members are:
In May FWD.us began running ads the immigration bill pushed by the so-called Senate Gang of 8. Politico reports that Americans for a Conservative Direction will spend over $1 million to push the ad in states including Texas, Florida, Iowa, and Kentucky. (http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2013/05/07/Republican-group-Facebook-immigration-bill)
Another group running ads is the American Action Network. The American Action Network was founded by Fred Malek, National Finance Committee co-chair of John McCains 2008 presidential campaign. AAN created the American Action Forum and the Hispanic Leadership Network. These groups share office space with the Karl Rove affiliated Crossroads GPS/American Crossroads.
These groups have overlapping leadership and membership.

Immigration from Mexico
Immigration from Mexico is 2.5 times that of Europe.
Immigration from one country, Mexico, is 2.5 times that of many countries combined.
I've taken the figures from the above table at cis.org and graphed them.
Note the sharp increase in immigration from Mexico and how that differs from all other regions' increase. Note also the sharp decline in immigration from Europe while all other regions have increased.
As of March 2010, 11.2 million unauthorized immigrants were living in the United StatesOur immigration policy must serve our needs, our ability to absorb, and immigrants' ability to assimilate. Creating large sub-societies serves no good purpose.
Our security can not be conditioned upon the demands of unassimilated immigrants or illegally present foreigners.
The Constitution of Liberty
Excerpts from The Constitution of Liberty
The picture generally given of the relative position of the three parties (ed: socialism, conservatism, classical liberalism) does more to obscure than to elucidate their true relations. They are usually represented as different positions on a line, with the socialists on the left, the conservatives on the right, and the liberals somewhere in the middle. Nothing could be more misleading. If we want a diagram, it would be more appropriate to arrange them in a triangle with the conservatives occupying one corner, with the socialists pulling toward the second and the liberals toward the third. But, as the socialists have for a long time been able to pull harder, the conservatives have tended to follow the socialist rather than the liberal direction and have adopted at appropriate intervals of time those ideas made respectable by radical propaganda. It has been regularly the conservatives who have compromised with socialism and stolen its thunder.The entire article at the link is food for thought. We need a party of liberty.

From 2013 to 2014 the increase in Unaccompanied Alien Children crossing the southern border was 106%
From 2013 to 2014 the increase in Family Units crossing the southern border was 493%
From 2013 to 2014 in the Rio Grande Valley, where most illegal border crossings occur, the Unaccompanied Alien Children illegally crossing the border increased 189% to 42,164, the Family Units illegally crossing the border increased more than 500% to 42,358.
U.S. Const. art. IV, § 4 mandates the Federal government protect states against Invasion. The Federal government has not performed.
U.S. Const. art. I, § 10 No State shall, without the Consent of Congress, lay any Duty of Tonnage, keep Troops, or Ships of War in time of Peace, enter into any Agreement or Compact with another State, or with a foreign Power, or engage in War, unless actually invaded, or in such imminent Danger as will not admit of delay.
U.S. Const. amend. X The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.
All States retain the right to self defense. The Federal government has refused to provide for the common defense, the raison d'etre for the Federal government. The States must repel invasion or the people will.
The Texas Governor has the authority to call forth the state military forces and the reserve militia to repel the invasion.

The Arizona Governor has the authority to proclaim an emergency and mobilize all or any part of the state guard or the unorganized militia into service of the state.

Ariz. Rev. Stat. § 26-122.

Ariz. Rev. Stat. § 26-172.
N.B. Unlike Arizona SB-1070, these do not pertain to immigration but to a proclamation of an emergency and the protection of lives or property.
There is no reason for Governors to stand by idly when the law supports States 100% and the Federals violate law.
We can not sit by and allow our country to be invaded while politicians dither and court each other.
Inaction is complicity!
MAP: Where feds are trying to relocate illegal aliens
Congress has the authority to arrest and imprison those found in Contempt. The power extends throughout the United States and is an inherent power (does not depend upon legislated act)
If found in Contempt the person can be arrested under a warrant of the Speaker of the House of Representatives or President of the Senate, by the respective Sergeant at Arms.
Statutory criminal contempt is an alternative to inherent contempt.
Under the inherent contempt power Congress may imprison a person for a specific period of time or an indefinite period of time, except a person imprisoned by the House of Representatives may not be imprisoned beyond adjournment of a session of Congress.
Imprisonment may be coercive or punitive.

 Anderson v. Dunn - 19 U.S. 204 - And, as to the distance to which the process might reach, it is very clear that there exists no reason for confining its operation to the limits of the District of Columbia; after passing those limits, we know no bounds that can be prescribed to its range but those of the United States.
 Jurney v. MacCracken, 294 U.S. 125
 McGrain v. Daugherty, 273 U.S. 135 - Under a warrant issued by the President of the Senate the Deputy to the Senate Sergeant at Arms arrested at Cincinnati, Ohio, Mally S. Daugherty, who had been twice subpoenaed by the Senate and twice failed to appear.
 Rules of the House of Representatives, Rule IV Duties of the Sergeant at Arms -  execute the commands of the House, and all processes issued by authority thereof, directed to him by the Speaker.

Whether building at Las Vegas or solar development at Dry Lake, development causes habitat destruction. Designated areas are set aside as "mitigation" for the destruction at these developing areas.
Gold Butte is one of these areas.
The master-mind planners dismiss the fact that the Bundy family have been using the land for over a century.
The Clark County Multiple Species Habitat Conservation Plan (MSHCP) [at dropbox link above] has "resulted in the removal of 700,000 acres of habitat from cattle grazing."Gold Butte is viewed as a "mitigation bank":
The County Commissioners "support the development of a Reserve System, consisting of lands currently managed by the BLM, to be transferred to the Permittees [City Managers and others from Las Vegas, Boulder City, Mesquite, and Henderson] for the purposes of long-term conservation of species and mitigation of impacts in the developing areas of Clark County, thereby providing greater control over conservation efforts and maximizing the efficiency of the MSHCP."See the Community Advisory Committee recommendations report [at dropbox link above] and the Board of County Commissioners' Resolution accepting the report [at dropbox link above].
A man is being dispossessed of his business so that other businesses may benefit. The power of government is facilitating this theft.

The Federal Communications Commission is planning a probe of political speech across media platforms.
The "Multi-Market Study of Critical Information Needs" will embed government researchers in news media organizations to collect information on demographics, point of view, news topic selection, management style and other factors.
The information is then numerically encoded according to how well, in the FCCs view, it meets the "critical information needs" of particular "communities."
The study identified eight "critical information needs": information about emergencies and risks; health and welfare; education; transportation; economic opportunities; the environment; civic information; and political information.
The FCC awarded the contract for the study to Silver Spring, Maryland-based Social Solutions International. According to a May article in Communications Daily, Social Solutions International will be paid $917,823.
Social Solutions International says that in addition to its general evaluation of news content, the survey will include a "qualitative component" featuring interrogations of news organization owners, management and employees.
Among the questions:
For media owners: "What is the news philosophy of the station?"
For editors, producers and managers: "Do you have any reporters or editors assigned to topic beats? If so how many and what are the beats?" "Who decides which stories are covered?"
For reporters: "Have you ever suggested coverage of what you consider a story with critical information for your customers (viewers, listeners, readers) that was rejected by management?" (Followup questions ask the reporter to speculate on why a particular story was spiked.)

The IRS attacks our right of free expression of opinion and association.
The NSA violates the privacy of our communication.
The Department of Homeland Security wants a national license plate tracking system built upon the national surveillance camera infrastructure the establishment of which they've instigated and funded. And this on the pretense of tracking illegal aliens while borders and ports are not secured and politicians entice foreigners with promises of education and health care are no or reduced cost.
The FCC plans to install "monitors" at newspapers, radio, and tv stations.

How to Win Political Arguments
Rush Limbaugh on Evan Sayet's Universal Field Theory of Liberalism
The modern liberal - there's something about his ideology that leads him to invariably and inevitably side with evil over good, wrong over right, the lesser over the better, the ugly over the beautiful, the profane over the profound, and the behaviors that lead to failure over those that lead to success.
If no religion, if no culture, if no person, if no behavior, if no form of governance, if nothing is better than anything else, then success is unjust.

Common sense immigration reform: Enforce Existing Law
Entropy isn't what it used to be.

You can't win if you don't fight. Remember the Barrycades!
At issue is whether the IRS, by providing tax credits to those who enrolled through Federally established and operated exchanges, violated the law.
PPACA SEC. 1401 creates section 36B of the Internal Revenue Code:
SEC. 1401(a) In General.--Subpart C of part IV of subchapter A of chapter 1 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 (relating to refundable credits) is amended by inserting after section 36A the following new section:
36B(b)(2) specifies the premium assistance amount is equal to the lesser of SEC. 36B(b)(2)(A) or SEC. 36B(b)(2)(B).SEC. 36B (a) In General.--In the case of an applicable taxpayer, there shall be allowed as a credit against the tax imposed by this subtitle for any taxable year an amount equal to the premium assistance credit amount of the taxpayer for the taxable year. (b) Premium Assistance Credit Amount.--For purposes of this section-- (1) In general.-- <> The term `premium assistance credit amount' means, with respect to any taxable year, the sum of the premium assistance amounts determined under paragraph (2) with respect to all coverage months of the taxpayer occurring during the taxable year. (2) Premium assistance amount.--The premium assistance amount determined under this subsection with respect to any coverage month is the amount equal to the lesser of-- ``(A) the monthly premiums for such month for 1 or more qualified health plans offered in the individual market within a State which cover the taxpayer, the taxpayer's spouse, or any dependent (as defined in section 152) of the taxpayer and which were enrolled in through an Exchange established by the State under 1311 of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, or ``(B) the excess (if any) of-- ``(i) the adjusted monthly premium for such month for the applicable second lowest cost silver plan with respect to the taxpayer, over ``(ii) an amount equal to 1/12 of the product of the applicable percentage and the taxpayer's household income for the taxable year.
SEC. 36B(b)(2)(A) is explicitly specified as applying to an Exchange established by the State under 1311.
For SEC. 36B(b)(2)(B) to be given effect SEC. 36B(b)(2)(B) must necessarily also refer to Exchanges established by the State under 1311, otherwise 36B(b)(2) would be meaningless because a taxpayer can not be enrolled in both a state and federal exchange and whichever is the lesser amount applies.
Courts would have to either ignore the explicit and unambiguous letter of the law and introduce the absurdity that SEC. 36B(b)(2)(A) Exchange established by the State under 1311" includes Exchange established by the Federal government under 1321", or simply read out of SEC. 36B(b)(2)(A) Exchange established by the State under 1311".
The law is not ambiguous or unreasonable, Congress intent is clear. There are no "errors" for the judiciary to correct.
The court can not reconstruct a statute to satisfy an agencys claim or to provide cover for their illegal acts.
The act explicitly provides tax credits for Exchanges established by the State and excludes tax credits for Exchanges established by the Federal government. This was intended as an inducement to states to establish exchanges. Many states did not establish exchanges, this was not anticipated by the authors of PPACA.
A recently made claim revolves around the meaning of "such an exchange", that this phrase makes Exchange established by the State under 1311" equivalent to Exchange established by the Federal government under 1321". This claim is based on SEC. 1311 (d)(1)
and SEC. 1321 (c)(1)(B)(ii)(II) of the PPACA, parts of which I've highlighted.(d)(1) In general.--An Exchange shall be a governmental agency or nonprofit entity that is established by a State.
The Federal government can not compel States to establish an Exchange, it can and has offered inducements to establish such an Exchange. If a State rejects the inducements and has not established an Exchange then the Secretary shall [ ] establish and operate such Exchange within the State that did not establish such an Exchange.(c) FAILURE TO ESTABLISH EXCHANGE OR IMPLEMENT REQUIREMENTS. (1) IN GENERAL.If (A) a State is not an electing State under subsection (b); or (B) the Secretary determines, on or before January 1, 2013, that an electing State (i) will not have any required Exchange operational by January 1, 2014; or (ii) has not taken the actions the Secretary deter- mines necessary to implement (I) the other requirements set forth in the standards under subsection (a); or (II) the requirements set forth in subtitles A and C and the amendments made by such sub- titles; the Secretary shall (directly or through agreement with a not- for-profit entity) establish and operate such Exchange within the State and the Secretary shall take such actions as are necessary to implement such other requirements.
SEC. 36B(b)(2)(A) of the IRS code clearly states "Exchange established by the State". It does not say "Exchange established within the State".
Administration lawyers are attempting to obfuscate by claiming there is ambiguity where none exists, and absent that they are attempting to generate ambiguity. The law is clear: the act explicitly provides tax credits for Exchanges established by the State and excludes tax credits for Exchanges established by the Federal government.
