By Hook and By Crook, You Are Going to Pay for Climate Change

It’s the first day of spring and we are having snow again. Not much, a couple of inches, just enough to prove that March always goes out like a lion. Undeterred, global progressives, intent on sending us into the stone age of technology, are forcing their agenda of redistributive taxation of man-made global warming/climate change on everyone.

But that’s not all. According to Dr. Klaus Kaiser, Central Europe experienced a Mother Nature event—a total solar eclipse around 9 a.m., March 20, 2015, the spring equinox,  and a super-moon. It will be interesting to see how electric power plants dependent heavily on solar power fared in a shut-down during the day when energy demand is at its peak. And the most vulnerable was Germany which derives a larger percent of its electricity needs from solar power. 
Dr. Kaiser said, “With well over 10,000 wind turbines in operation, the European electric grid has already experienced instability close to collapse.  The (far) offshore system Bard-1 in the German Bight, built for approximately $5 billion two years ago is slowly rusting in the sea. It is a real money maker—for the legal profession.”

IT Worker Replaced by Foreign National Regrets Voting for Obama..

Several information-technology workers provided anonymous testimony for today’s Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on the immigration reforms needed to protect skilled workers. One former IT worker at multi-billion dollar utilities provider Southern California Edison, who chose to remain anonymous because of a non-disparagement agreement he signed with his former employer, wrote that he was recently replaced by a foreign worker with an H-1B visa. He is one of more than 400 people at Southern California Edison (SCE) who have reportedly lost their jobs to foreign workers in India.

“I’ve paid my taxes, obeyed the laws and have been a good citizen supporting the community with donations,” the former SCE worker wrote. “I voted for President Obama and was appalled that he implemented a rule change, which allows work permits to H-1B spouses. My future votes will only go to candidates that support reforms to the H-1B visa program that preserve the American worker.”

Hal Salzman, a professor at Rutgers University’s center for workforce development, testified that such guest workers are not needed to fill STEM jobs (careers in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics). “The U.S. supply of top performing graduates is large and far exceeds the hiring needs of the STEM industries, with only half of new STEM graduates finding jobs in...

Obama Urges Soviet-Style Voting Laws

Forcing Americans to vote under threat of legal penalty would help to fundamentally transform America, President Obama told a town hall-style meeting in Cleveland yesterday.

It is the latest radical leveling scheme that flows from the president’s totalitarian impulses. It is also consistent with his support for “Net Neutrality,” which is a form of censorship and his opposition to the landmark Citizens United decision that affirmed a conservative activist group’s constitutionally guaranteed right to make a movie critical of Hillary Clinton. It is an assault on American democracy itself because one of the ways that people express themselves politically is to stay home on Election Day. Compelled speech is not free speech.

“It would be transformative if everybody voted,” Obama said just months after his party was crushed in off-year congressional elections that gave Republicans control of both houses of Congress.

“That would counteract [campaign] money more than anything,” the president said during a discussion about reducing the role of money in elections. “If everybody voted, then it would completely change the...

ICE: 167,527 Criminal Aliens Loose in U.S.A.

(CNSNews.com) - According to weekly detention and departure reports from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, there were 167,527 non-detained convicted criminal aliens in the United States as of Jan. 26 of this year, a congressional hearing revealed Thursday.

House Oversight and Government Reform Chairman Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah.) read the statistic aloud Thursday durin a hearing examining ICE's priorities and procedures for removing criminal aliens currently living in the United States.

“In that report, it said that there are 167,527 non-detained, final-order convicted criminals on the loose in the United States,” Chaffetz pointed out while questioning ICE Director Sarah Saldana.

“These are people that are here illegally, get caught, convicted, and you release back out into the public,” he said, adding that some of the crimes committed by those who have been released include homicide, sex crimes, child pornography, drunk driving, robbery and...

White Americans Under Assault As Target Of Government Sponsored, Endorsed And Subsidized Racism..

Racism in America is alive and well. There is only one litmus test for the racism to be approved as acceptable, proper and non-offensive. It must be directed against white Americans. All other races and ethnicities, including white Hispanics are excluded, as are all religions except Christianity and Judaism and all sexual classifications other than heterosexuals. Basically, if your ancestors could have been in a Norman Rockwell painting, you’re fair game. Discrimination against any other group is strictly forbidden as being intolerant or hurtful and even criminal. But why would anybody target a person of color when white people are still fairly plentiful and it’s always open season?

The new belief permeating the actions of the controllers of America is that those who took this nation from a primitive frontier to the leader of the free world are not worthy of enjoying the benefits that their ancestors have passed on to them. Somehow they have outgrown or outlived their usefulness and the time has come for them to simply turn over their rewards and fruits of their heritage over to a population of undeserving imports.

We have all witnesses the unfounded attacks on police and white Americans being directed by the racists in the Obama regime and the Holder Justice Department. This has been a reality since before the days when the Black Panthers were allowed by the DOJ to intimidate white voters outside Philadelphia polling places. This isn’t a new development and it didn’t happen accidentally. It’s part of the fundamental transformation that...

Outsourcing Jobs In America

You've spent twenty plus years loyally working in Information Technology (IT) for Southern California Edison, and eighteen months ago your boss tells you that they are going to study outsourcing but not to worry, "your position is safe." On the one hand you are worried because you know many stories of American IT workers losing their jobs to outsourcing, but on the other you feel comforted that you've been loyal to SCE and provide a critical service. Then eight months ago they tell you that they are outsourcing most IT functions and that they want you, get this, to train your guestworker replacement. If you say no, SCE will terminate you with cause and you would lose not only a severance package but also eligibility for unemployment insurance. This is the common story I heard from many workers at SCE.

The work that the 400 SCE IT employees do isn't disappearing, instead it and their jobs are being taken over by foreign guestworkers here on H-1B visas. Those guestworkers are employed by the two leading India-based outsourcing firms, Tata Consultancy Services and Infosys.

The SCE workers are wondering: "Why should I lose my job when the work still needs to be done? Why is the government doing this to me and my family?" 

Adding to the injustice of losing their jobs, the SCE workers are being forced to do something that is so common in the industry it is a term of art: “knowledge transfer,” an ugly euphemism that means being forced to train your own foreign replacement. The SCE workers are, "demoralized; in disbelief; beyond furious; down in the dumps; feeling anguish; depressed; feeling dehumanized; feeling humiliated; worrying about the future; worrying about paying the bills."

The SCE workers rightly place the culpability squarely on SCE executives, the president, and Congress. One worker simply said, "Shame on Edison for doing this and shame on our politicians for enabling it."

H-1B visas are temporary work permits issued by the U.S. government that are good for up to six years. The intent is for these visas to be used only when an American worker cannot be found. In fact, the U.S. Department of Labor states, "The Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) requires that the hiring of a foreign worker will not adversely affect the wages and working conditions of U.S. workers comparably employed.”

In practice, the H-1B visa has been used for years to undercut American workers with lower-wage, and often lesser-skilled, workers brought in from overseas. How does this happen? Congress sets the wage floors for H-1Bs, and it has set it far below market wages. And the Department of Labor has chosen not to investigate the rampant abuse of the program. As a result, over the past decade, outsourcers like Tata Consultancy Services and Infosys have become the dominant users. Just over the past four years, Tata and Infosys received more than 33,000 new H-1B visas. That's 33,000 jobs lost due to those two companies alone. They use the program to replace American workers domestically while using their H-1B workforce stationed in America to facilitate the transfer of work and jobs to India. These are not immigrants in waiting, the firms sponsor virtually none of their H-1B workers for permanent residence (greencards). Instead of a way to fill skills gaps, the H-1B program has become a way to suppress wages and pad profits.

The practice of replacing American workers with cheaper H-1B guestworkers is widespread. It is so endemic in the H-1B program that last year the majority of the visas went to outsourcing companies. Indian Government officials have dubbed the H-1B as the "Outsourcing Visa."

Why do companies replace Americans with foreign guestworkers? The SCE workers rightly believe the motivation is...

Agent: Obama is Now Punishing Border Patrol Agents Who Report Illegals..

On Tuesday, U.S. Border Patrol Agent Chris Cabrera testified before a U.S. Senate Committee that agents who report that large groups of illegal aliens are crossing the border into this country are now being regularly punished.

Agent Cabrera who works in Rio Grande Valley Sector in Texas told the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee:
Agents who repeatedly report groups larger than 20 face retribution. Management will either take them out of the field and assign them to processing detainees at the station or assign them to a fixed position in low volume areas as punishment…Needless to say Agents got the message and now stay below this 20 person threshold no matter the actual size of the group.
Additionally, Agent Cabrera told the Senators that at least 60 percent of illegal aliens are never captured.
“Ask any line Agent in the field and he or she will tell you that at best we apprehend 35-40% of the illegal immigrants attempting to cross. This number is even lower for drug smugglers who are much more adept at eluding capture,” said Cabrera.

“I want to be crystal clear – the border is not secure,” Cabrera warned.
Of course, this is not the first time a credible law enforcement official has pointed out that President Obama has been lying about ...


POPCORN TIME WAS an instant hit when it launched just over a year ago: The video streaming service made BitTorrent piracy as easy as Netflix, but with far more content and none of those pesky monthly payments. Hollywood quickly intervened, pressuring Popcorn Time’s Argentinian developers to walk away from their creation. But anonymous coders soon relaunched the copyright-flouting software. Today, Popcorn Time is growing at a rate that has likely surpassed the original, and the people behind it say they’re working on changes designed to make the service virtually impervious to law enforcement.

As Popcorn Time celebrated the first anniversary of its rebirth, WIRED chatted via email and instant message with a software developer from Popcorn-Time.se, one of the most popular of several reincarnations of Popcorn Time. (The anonymous developer asked us to use Popcorn Time’s smiling popcorn-box mascot “Pochoclin” as his or her pseudonym.) Popcorn Time’s masked spokesperson says the streaming movie and TV app is flourishing—in defiance of many of the world’s most powerful copyright holders and EURid, the domain registrar that seized the original site’s web domain last year.

Popcorn-Time.se, Pochoclin says, has millions of users and is growing at the mind-bending rate of 100,000 downloads per day. He or she also hinted that a forthcoming switch to a peer-to-peer architecture will make the service far harder for copyright cops to attack. “We’re at the threshold of one of the most exciting times since we started this project,” Pochoclin writes. “Making all our data available via p2p will mean that Popcorn Time will no longer rely on domains and centralized servers but only on its user base.”
“After everything we went through,” Pochoclin said, “this will be our sweetest revenge and our biggest victory.”

When Popcorn-Time.se started responding to WIRED’s questions in November, Pochoclin said the reborn project already had 4 million users. But it had taken a...

Microsoft "Bait and Switch" Could Mean a Huge Increase in Foreign Tech Workers

The software giant's modest proposal on H1-B visas won over labor and education allies—until they saw the actual legislation.

A member of a powerful DC-based coalition of education and labor groups says Microsoft tricked him and others into opening the door to the Immigration Innovation Act, a federal bill that would promote the offshore outsourcing of American jobs.

"It was a classic bait and switch," says the source, a member of the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) Education Coalition, an umbrella organization of some 500 corporate, labor, and education groups that was cofounded by Microsoft. The source, who asked to remain anonymous for fear of jeopardizing his relationships with allies on Capitol Hill, described Microsoft's approach to the bill as "lobbying malpractice."

Though Microsoft did nothing illegal, it appears to have run afoul of its would-be allies by making the bill a vehicle for for significantly looser immigration restrictions—thereby putting its own interests ahead of those of the education and labor groups it had seduced by promising something more palatable.

For more than a decade, Microsoft has supplemented its American-born workforce with foreigners who come to the US on temporary H-1B work visas. The federal government offers just 65,000 H-1B visas each year, however, and in prosperous years the cap quickly maxes out. In September, the software giant claimed it couldn't fill some 6,000 domestic jobs due to a shortage of qualified Americans and a lack of available visas.

The company proposed a novel workaround: If the federal government would raise the H1-B cap by 20,000 additional visas and make available an equal number of additional green cards, Microsoft said it would be willing to pay nearly four times the usual fees, handing over $10,000 per H-1B visa and $15,000 per green card. It called its proposal the National Talent Strategy because the...

Illegals First – American Citizens, Legal Immigrants Wait As Obama Rewards Illegal Squatters With Priority Processing..

It used to be that Americans who are petitioning what was their government, sponsoring a fiance were given the highest priority in immigrant visa processing. Even in that case it was a lengthy process, with wait times of from three months to a year.

That was back when the American government was a “by the people, for the people” type of arrangement. Now that it has been converted into one which views the citizens as mere peasants deserving of their disdain and oppression, the privileges (and rights) once associated with American citizenship are rapidly disappearing.

The Senate Judiciary Committee has released a document provided to them in response to a request for information by Iowa Republican Senator Charles Grassley, and his colleagues, Ron Johnson (R-WI) and Jeff Sessions (R-AL).

Some interesting reshuffling of the priorities has taken place, ones which bestow illegals with the fast-track Obama stamp of priority processing as well as the wage-busting cheap labor wanted by his big business cronies. The priority processing status has been shifted to a new group, and while they are provided a fast-track, the shift of focus and resources has resulted in the waiting period for other groups that have been greatly increased. There is no free lunch and those working within the system legally are paying the price for those who didn’t.

Applications filed under the outlaw Obama’s DACA program have replaced those of American citizens petitioning their foreign fiancé’s and other groups as a top priority. Just as in their tactics of flooding the country with foreigners, Homeland Security and the immigration services under its jurisdiction have become little more than a political tool for the movement of the regime’s Marxist agenda.

In this case, rather than delay the processing of illegals into American society until they were able to handle the additional workload they were creating, Hussein Obama and his co-conspirators at DHS simply reassigned the waiting period to others. Their agenda comes first and 2016 will be here before we know it. These illegals will be needed for their fraudulent Democrat votes and...

15 Illegal Aliens Arrested In Florida Human And Sex Trafficking Bust...

Fifteen Illegal Aliens have been arrested in a major human trafficking ring that was operating in central and south Florida.

State Attorney General Pam Bondi held a news conference Wednesday Tallahassee.

She said the sting involved at least six victims, all women, who had been illegally smuggled into the U.S. from Mexico and Central America.

According to state officials, the victims were tricked with the promise of being reunited with other family members already in the U.S., but, they were forced into sex slavery.

"These suspects are part of a loose network of individuals who worked separately to find individual victims. The captors know each other and routinely communicated," said Florida Department of Law Enforcement Commissioner Rick Swearingen.

Swearingen said two more culprits remain at large. Their last known location was rural Lee and Hendry counties.

Companies That Use H-1B Visa's To Lay Off American Workers Are TRAITORS

Massive layoffs are being spearheaded by the multi-billion dollar Southern California Edison utilities company, which is terminating scores of American IT workers and replacing them with immigrant IT workers, from a slew of foreign counties, who are willing to work for far less compensation. These immigrants are in the U.S. on an H-1B visa program.

“We don’t need foreign workers. We have plenty of Americans who are fully capable and equipped to carry out these jobs. It’s an absolute issue of corporate greed; nothing more nothing less,” former Edison employee and Marine Pat Lavin told Breitbart News in an exclusive interview late last week.

Lavin is a stalwart Democrat who serves as a business manager and financial secretary for the the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) Local #47. “Edison are master liars,” Lavin cautioned, quipping that he “caught them telling the truth last week and they tried to lie their way out of it.”

Lavin spoke with Breitbart News as one of the California Edison workers laid off in the scandal that Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) and Senate Judiciary Committee chairman Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) have hammered the company for. Grassley called the layoffs “heartless” and Issa argued that this appears to be an abuse of the program.

America is facing a surplus of STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) workers who are unemployed or have been laid off from work due to companies, like SoCal Edison, that have been outsourcing American jobs to immigrants. According to an article from Robert Charette in IEEE Spectrum, the so-called “STEM Crisis”—where tech leaders like Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, who claim they need to import cheap foreign labor—is a “myth.”

Increasing the number of H1B visas being imported into America to take jobs from American workers is something that right now is largely supported by the Democratic Party and also has backing from establishment Republicans like former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush. It’s also likely to become a major issue in the 2016 GOP presidential primaries.

“We have this H1B visa program for highly skilled workers and normally the visa is for three to five years,” Bush said in an interview in 2013 on his book “Immigration Wars.” In that same interview, Bush said it would be “foolish” not to pass an extension on the H1B program.

But Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) who heads the Senate Judiciary Committee’s subcommittee on Immigration and the National Interest and has been the most vocal politician in opposition to an extension of the H1B visas. He argues that...
