Montezuma's Revenge*
Americans forced to drink from sewers?
* -- The revenge element of the phrase alludes to the supposed hostile attitude of countries that were previously colonized by stronger countries, which are now, in this small but effective way, getting their own back.
Los Angeles Times -- May 24, 2015
Turning sewage into drinking water gains appeal as drought lingers
   It's a technology with the potential to ease California's colossal thirst and insulate millions from the parched whims of Mother Nature, experts say.
    But there's just one problem --- the "yuck factor."

The Impact Of Illegal Immigration On California's Drought Emergency
 ...Think about it. There are nearly 3 million illegal aliens living in California, and that doesn't include the millions of “anchor babies” that also reside here. The number of anchor babies is hard to calculate, but the kindest of estimates puts one anchor baby per illegal immigrant, so let's set the number at 3 million. That makes 6 million people, who shouldn't even be in this country, living in California and using up our resources.
    If the government would enforce the law, the water drought wouldn't even be an issue. There would be plenty to go around. Instead, we have a massive group of illegal people literally draining our water reserves. Gov. Brown wants Californians to use 20% less water, which is approximately the percentage of the population that is illegal. Get rid of the undocumented and the problem is solved.

If You Think The Drought is Bad...
Glenn Spencer -- American Patrol Report
    Those of us who supported Proposition 187 didn't know the drought was coming, but we knew that importing poverty was a bad idea. Had the liberals not killed 187 illegally, the drought could have been managed MUCH more easily.
    If you think things are bad now, wait until the next sudden drop in tax revenues.
    The people of California will once again pay a high price for an arrogant liberal elite --- led by the Los Angeles Times.

ABP -- America's Big Secret  
This week I played host to a congressional staffer and two members of the US Border Patrol. I did so as CEO of Border Technology, but they were well aware of my work as head of American Border Patrol. -- During both visits I brought up the issue of a US Senator, and Chairman of the Homeland Security Committee, who was not allowed to show a map of where the border fence is located. -- All were appalled at this. Then I asked if they had seen ABP's map showing where the fence is. -- None had, so I showed it to them. -- They were amazed. How could this be? It is because most government and large corporations block access to ABP's web site using software developed by people like the SPLC and ADL. We are labeled a “hate group.” Some people hate the truth.

ICE releasing some illegals without knowing criminal history 
The Homeland Security Department can't yet say how many illegal immigrants it's releasing under President Obama's prosecutorial discretion policies, and sometimes agents cut loose illegal immigrants without ever knowing their full criminal history, the department's inspector general said in a new report Wednesday......

Brown should uphold driving mandate 
Six months ago, via the Measure 88 referendum, Oregon voters delivered a clear mandate: Foreigners here illegally shall not have driving privileges in our state. Now, newly installed Gov. Kate Brown must defend that mandate --- even if courts ultimately uphold President Obama's executive action offering work permits and deferred deportation to some 4 million illegal immigrants......

Nuking the Pentagon -- A Little Light on Damage
I ran across a story in Before Its News with the headline RED ALERT: Iran to Nuke Pentagon in DC. The story includes a graphic of what I assume to be what a nuclear explosion over the Pentagon would look like. Excuse me? -- Consider this: "If exploded at the optimum height, therefore, a 10-megaton weapon, which is 1,000 times as powerful as a 10-kiloton weapon, will increase the distance tenfold, that is, out to 17.7 km (11 mi) for severe damage and 24 km (15 mi) for moderate damage of a frame house."  It would look like this.

Stolen Bible leads police to two suspected illegals in death of 90-year-old Carver County man 
A stolen Bible led to the arrest of two men charged Wednesday with robbing and fatally beating a 90-year-old man in his Carver County farmhouse. -- One of the suspects had recently painted Earl Olander’s house and decided he was “an easy target because he was an old man that lived alone and had money,” the charges say. -- The house painter, Reinol Godines Vergara, 35, of Richfield, and his alleged accomplice, Edson Celin-Dominguez Benitez, 29, of St. Paul, are in the Carver County jail in Chaska on second-degree murder charges, with bail set at $1.5 million apiece.......

Pima County legal defender, illegal alien "rights" advocate Isabel Garcia retiring

GOP Defense Bill Puts Illegals Ahead Of Americans 
If the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2016 is approved, it would shrink the United States military under the pretense of frugality, namely by “pink slipping” career service members who've endured combat. Meanwhile, it could possibly use the military to grant amnesty to illegals. -- According to a summary of the NDAA, the House Armed Services Committee supports a 20 percent cut in personnel by the Department of Defense to reduce headquarters' budgets and workforce......

Letters From Around the Country  
Gov. Brown's plans to cut water usage are useless until California stops building new homes and starts deporting and turning away the millions of illegal immigrants in the state. Surely the governor realizes that all those illegal immigrants drink water, wash their hair, flush toilets and take baths --- and that all those new home buyers will also require thousands of gallons a water. --Tearing up my grass isn't going to help........

O'Reilly Pushing Amnesty Again  
We have reported over the years that, beneath all the nonsense about “looking out for the folks,” Bill O'Reilly has been pushing for amnesty for illegal aliens. Here are just two samples of many stories we have run --- ONE and TWO. -- Watch this segment from last night's O'Reilly Factor --- A Changing America -- and you will see him support amnesty by ATTACKING THE CATHOLIC CHURCH --- one of the biggest supporters of amnesty! -- You have to read between the lines of this spinmeister --- but he is calling for Amnesty pure and simple......

DHS Is Not Tracking Its Own Use of 'Prosecutorial Discretion' to Release Illegals
Federal officials have not kept track of the number of times they have used “prosecutorial discretion” to justify the release of an illegal immigrant, and they have inadequate information on who is eligible for such treatment, the Department of Homeland Security inspector general reports......

Silicon Valley to Americans: Drop Dead 
Silicon Valley oligarchs come to the immigration debate with considerable advantages. Aside from the obvious giant bags of money, there's the perception (often correct) that they're wizards responsible for breathtaking innovation and economic growth. So when they say they need ever-greater numbers of indentured code-jockeys from abroad because there aren't not enough Americans available, they're taken seriously (even though the real motivation is simply cheap labor). This gullibility is all the more prevalent in Congress, many of whose members don't even know how to turn their computers on (let alone send e-mail)......

The government watchdog for the Department of Homeland Security released a report this week saying that U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement released nearly 13,000 illegal immigrants in fiscal year 2014, because ICE deemed they were not enforcement priorities. -- The same report from the DHS' Office of Inspector General found that DHS is not gathering and assessing enough data on its various policies of prosecutorial discretion, even though it had promised to do so......

At Paid Univision Event, Bill Clinton Endorses Path to Citizenship for Illegals, Policies of 'Radical Inclusion' 
On Tuesday at Univision's upfront event for advertisers, Bill Clinton pushed for a pathway to citizenship for illegal immigrants and called for policies of “radical inclusion.” -- “You've got to have a credible position on immigration reform,” Clinton reportedly said when asked how candidates should court Hispanic voters, according to The Hollywood Reporter. “The only things that makes sense are a path for citizenship and support for children.... The only thing to do is have a policy of radical inclusion.”.....
