State Depts. travel advisory for UAE !


Lou Dobbs asked a question that we all need to ask those that keep telling us the United Arab Emirates is our friend!

Aired 2/22/06

http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANSCRIPTS/0602/22/ldt.01.html

The Bush administration has stated repeatedly that the United Arab Emirates is a reliable partner in the war on radical Islamist terrorists. But if the UAE is such a stable, dependable friend of the United States, then why is the United States State Department warning Americans on the dangers of traveling to the United Arab Emirates?

The State Department says in its current travel advisory, "Americans in the United Arab Emirates should exercise a high level of security awareness. Americans should maintain a low profile and vary routes and times for all required travel."

That's right, our State Department issuing a travel advisory for the United Arab Emirates, the owner of DP World that would take over operation of terminals at six major U.S. ports.

The United States, of course, is not the only government concerned about its citizens' welfare in the United Arab Emirates. Britain advises its citizens to "avoid large gatherings" and "be aware of the threat of terrorism."
The Australian government says, "We continue to receive reports that terrorists are planning attacks against Western interests in the Unite Arab Emirates."
Canada is currently advising its citizens on the threat of terrorist attacks in the UAE as well.
In our poll question tonight, we ask: Do you feel more or less confident because President Bush says he didn't know about the port deal until members of Congress objected after the deal was approved?

U.S. State Dept. statement for travel to UAE
(NOTE: You MUST read how "western" this place is!)

SAFETY AND SECURITY: Americans in the United Arab Emirates should exercise a high level of security awareness. The Department of State remains concerned about the possibility of terrorist attacks against U.S. citizens and interests throughout the world. Americans should maintain a low profile, vary routes and times for all required travel, and treat mail and packages from unfamiliar sources with caution. In addition, U.S. citizens are urged to avoid contact with any suspicious, unfamiliar objects, and to report the presence of the objects to local authorities. Vehicles should not be left unattended, if at all possible, and should be kept locked at all times. U.S. Government personnel overseas have been advised to take the same precautions. In addition, U.S. Government facilities may temporarily close or suspend public services from time to time as necessary to review their security posture and ensure its adequacy.

Taking photographs of potentially-sensitive military or civilian sites, and/or engaging in mapping activities, especially mapping which includes the use of GPS equipment, without coordination with UAE authorities, may result in arrest, detention and/or prosecution by local authorities.

Country-wide traffic laws impose stringent penalties for certain violations, particularly driving under the influence of alcohol. In the UAE, there is zero tolerance for driving after consumption of alcohol. Penalties may include hefty jail sentences and fines and, for Muslims (even those holding U.S. citizenship), lashings.

Persons involved in an accident in which another party is injured automatically go to jail until the injured person is released from the hospital. Should a person die in a traffic accident, the driver of the other vehicle is liable for payment of compensation for the death (known as "dhiyya"), usually the equivalent of 55,000 U.S. dollars. Even relatively-minor accidents may result in lengthy proceedings, during which both drivers may be prohibited from leaving the country.

Codes of behavior and dress in the UAE reflect the country's Islamic traditions and are more conservative than those of the United States. Visitors to the UAE should be respectful of this conservative heritage, especially in the Emirate of Sharjah where rules of decency and public conduct are strictly enforced. Female travelers should keep in mind the cultural differences among the many people who coexist in the UAE and should be cognizant that unwitting actions may invite unwanted attention to them. Isolated incidents of verbal and physical harassment of Western women have occurred. Victims of harassment are encouraged to report such incidents to the U.S. Embassy in Abu Dhabi or the Consulate General in Dubai.

Legislation enacted in January 1996 imposes the death sentence for convicted drug traffickers. Some drugs normally taken under a doctor's supervision in the United States, and even some over-the-counter U.S. drugs and medications, are classified as narcotics in the UAE and are illegal to possess.

Drinking or possession of alcohol without a Ministry of Interior liquor permit is illegal and could result in arrest and/or fines and imprisonment.

Religious proselytizing is not permitted in the UAE. Persons violating this law, even unknowingly, may be imprisoned.

UAE in charge of US ports? Know Thy Enemy!

TheTownCrier
Feb. 21, 2006

When the United Arab Emirates and Portgate was first mentioned this is what I remembered of that country. They were friends of Osama bin Laden, as explained below:

http://www.cooperativeresearch.org/timeline.jsp?timeline=complete_911_timeline&before_9/11=huntForBinLaden

February 1999: Bin Laden Missile Strike Called Off for Fear of Hitting Persian Gulf Royalty

Intelligence reports foresee the presence of bin Laden at a desert hunting camp in Afghanistan for about a week. Information on his presence appears reliable, so preparations are made to target his location with cruise missiles. However, intelligence also puts an official aircraft of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and members of the royal family from that country in the same location. Bin Laden is hunting with the Emirati royals, as he did with leaders from the UAE and Saudi Arabia on other occasions (see 1995-2001). Policy makers are concerned that a strike might kill a prince or other senior officials, so the strike never happens. A top UAE official at the time denies that high-level officials are there, but evidence subsequently confirms their presence.

[9/11 Commission Report, 3/24/04 (B)] People and organizations involved: Osama bin Laden


We've been told by the usual White House appologists that the United Arab Emirates is our "friend", that they even have "Christians" and they're westernized, just like us. Yeah, why are they raising such a stink over Mohammed cartoons?
Read 'em and weap.

http://www.cnn.com/2006/WORLD/asiapcf/02/08/cartoon.protests/index.html

The cartoons have prompted boycotts of Danish goods throughout the Muslim world. In Dubai, United Arab Emirates, travel agents said travelers were not booking flights to Denmark or Norway.

Also in UAE, a university professor was fired after distributing copies of the cartoons to her students. The nation's minister of education, Sheikh Nahyan bin Mubarak al Nahan, said he ordered Clauda Keepoz's dismissal because "her behavior has nothing to do with the freedom of expression."

Protests against “blasphemous” cartoons mounts in Islamic nations
Jan. 31,2006

[snip] Burnt flags, political condemnation, and appeals for a boycott are involving even traditionally moderate Islamic nations, like Jordan, the United Arab Emirates and Kuwait. The Arab League and Organizations from the Islamic who announced their intention to appeal to the United Nations for a resolution blocking all forms of attacks against religious faiths.

But the wave of protest continues. “It’s cultural terrorism, not freedom of expression” intoned Mohammad al-Dhaheri, Minister for Justice and Islamic affairs of the United Arab Emirates.


http://www.csmonitor.com/2006/0201/dailyUpdate.html

In an editorial, the Khaleej Times of the United Arab Emirates expressed dismay that the Danish government has not formally apologized for the episode. The prime minister continues to defend the insensitive newspaper in the name of ‘media freedom’. All freedom including that of the media comes with responsibility. Mocking people’s deeply held religious beliefs and sentiments is no media freedom. It’s sheer and unpardonable callousness.


http://www.asiamedia.ucla.edu/article-world.asp?parentid=38492

Branches of French hypermarket Carrefour in Qatar and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) have also stopped selling Danish goods. "Danish products have been removed from all (UAE) branches of Carrefour," one official said.

Editorial AuntB
To all my internet friends,

I’ve always said the republicans use the Christian right, just like the democrats use black Americans. No one has escaped the plantation or the slavemaster.

Speaking of the Christian right, a shining example is Ralph Reed, running for Lt. Governor. Fellow money laundering scammer of Norquist and Abramoff and Karl Rove. As slimey as they come. A blasphemy to Christianity.

We talk about Islam being hijacked by false prophets to control and conquer . The same thing has happened to American Christianity. Look at the Catholic Church. Mainstream Catholics don’t agree with their immigration stance. The Mormon hierarchy has even gotten in on the act, which is why Chris Cannon, open border traitor of Congress, keeps getting elected.

We’ve been had. Denying it won’t make it otherwise. I see so many of my old conservative, Christian friends just hiding out, afraid to say what they really see. Afraid to admit they’ve stuck by a guy that just doesn’t give a damn for any of them. Like battered wives too endoctrinated to see escape. I understand the feeling. I felt that way a couple years ago. Betrayal is a wound no one wants to acknowledge. But the alternative, if we remain in denial, is unthinkable.

Only time will tell if we Americans, as a society, are as gullible as the muslims that follow the jihad cry of their leaders.

I also see some old friends standing up and saying, ENOUGH! And I am grateful today for that.

Regards, AuntB

Bill Clinton was President for eight years and somehow the Republic survived.

Ideology aside, the differences between the parties on a practical level are nil. No matter which party holds the reins of power, any attempts to address the basic problems of our nation will be ignored in favor of the usual logrolling, pork-barrel spending, and lobbyist vote-buying. If the Democrats take the House, the Senate, and the White House, abortion will be legal, income will be taxed, and the borders will be wide open. If the Republicans retain control of the House, the Senate, and the White House, abortion will still be legal, income will be still taxed, and the borders will be wide open.

The real problems of our nation are at the root level: borders and culture. Elections can't fix what's really wrong. Fundamental restoration of our civilization will be required -- and neither party is going to give us that. GOP or DNC? Meet the new boss -- same as the old boss.

The Ugly offspring of Catch & Release: Catch, Process and Release!

TheTownCrier
Feb. 17, 2006

Because of recent incursions on US soil by what appear to be Mexican Military personnel, the Investigation Subcommittee of the House of Representatives headed by Michael McCaul, (R) Texas, held a hearing on Feb. 7, 2006 with testimony from border sheriffs and US Border patrol agents. Every moment broadcast on CSpan was informative and frightening.

Troubling video of the invaders was shown and is available for viewing on the Homeland Security Committee web site.

Rep. Bob Ethridge, (D) North Carolina asked David Aguilar, US Border Patrol Chief, about OTMs (Other than Mexicans, who have been typically released into the public) and terrorists threat coming in from the Mexican border.

Aguilar summed up, “Is [the border] a vulnerability?”

“Yes”.

“Do we have information that Al-Qaeda and other terrorist organizations have looked at that possibility? “

“Yes”

Rep. Steve Pearce,(R), New Mexico questioned Aguilar. “The secretary (Homeland Security Michael Chertoff) said we are going to stop the catch and release program. [a friend of Pearce] Judge Carter recently went to one of the detention centers where OTM’s were being processed. Carter asked how long they are going to be here. He was told ‘til they are “processed”.

The judge commented to the official that he thought we were through with catch and release and was told, “We are. It’s now catch, process and release.”

Pearce asked Aguilar, “ Are we actually catching and releasing or catching, processing and releasing?”

Aguilar answered, “ We are moving toward catch and remove”.

That’s bureaucratic speak for , nothing has changed, except for more paper work and waste of government employee time. OTMS continue to be released into the general US Population.

Rep. Pearce continued, “We have significant difficulties at the border and the people along the border are just afraid for their lives! The Secretary's comments were that we are going to stop catch and release and to the nation the president said it also.”

“ I’m on your side, I asked the MinuteMen not to operate, but then you leave the citizens of this country on the front line with no protection. That is a very difficult stance for me to support. “

Aguilar confirmed that there had been other incursions by Mexican government personnel and they have been detained on US soil in the past.

Arvin West, Hudspeth, Texas County Sheriff summed up the risks of the Mexican border in his statement.

“Efforts to secure the border against illegal immigrants, drug trafficking, Mexican Military and terrorism has not been effective thus far. The border between Texas and Mexico has been a significant gateway to these kinds of illegal activity to enter the US.

If illicit organizations can bring in tons of narcotics to the region and work a distributing network that spans the entire country aided by the Mexican Military, then they can bring in the resources of terrorism as well. If drug cartels can solicit untrained people to drive across the border undetected, then what can well trained terrorists do?

May God bless you and this great nation we call home.”

WHITE HOUSE UNAWARE OF PERILS AT THE MEXICAN BORDER

TheTownCrier Editorial

Feb. 10,2006

CNN’s Lou Dobbs reported Thursday on The Texas Sheriffs Coalition, who attempt to protect citizens near the Mexican border, and their meeting with congress and the White House.

The congressional hearing, broadcast on CSpan, was great theater. Making the point with agency video from the U.S.- Mexico border, U.S. Border Patrol chief David Aguilar described a 108 percent jump in assaults on U.S. border officers, assaults involving rocks, flaming rocks, firearms at speeding cars.

In the fiscal year that ended last September, there were roughly 800 attacks on the Border Patrol. In the past four months alone, there have been around 200 attacks.

Casey Wians reports, “ Incredibly, the sheriffs say the Bush administration was surprised by their true-life tales of out-of-control violence, incursions by the Mexican military, and assaults against U.S. law enforcement.”

SHERIFF ARVIN WEST, HUDSPETH COUNTY, TEXAS stated, “They seemed to be surprised at some of the issues we brought up that they apparently were not aware about.”

Louise Schiavone reporting from Washington, “Tonight, our nation's border sheriffs are speaking out about this new border violence that is putting their very lives at risk. The sheriffs say Washington bureaucrats and Homeland Security officials are completely out of touch with what is actually happening on our borders and Washington is indifferent to what they go through each day to protect this country.”

Lou then announced his poll question:

Are you surprised that the Bush administration is surprised by the level of violence on the U.S.-Mexico border?

I answered “No”, not surprised at all. This wouldn’t be the first time the president was not informed. It would be nice to think it would be the last.

It was late summer of 2001. Thousands of Americans had done everything legal they could think of for 6 months to draw the attention of the White house to the plight of 1400 family farmers having their water arbitrarily cut off in the Klamath Basin near Klamath Falls, Oregon.

The media became involved. William Lajeunesse, of FoxNews and most national outlets attended and reported on the activities inclucing the “Bucket Brigade”, a protest of 20,000 people in May through the streets of Klamath Falls. That was said to be one of the largest peace time protest in this country.

The protest spanned months, from food convoys to the establishment of “Camp Headgate” where the farmers and their supporters pledged to stand against armed federal agents who were stationed for months to guard the water from the farmers, the rightful owners.

But did President Bush, over those many months know anything about this struggle? Evidently not. Remember, Bush says he doesn’t listen to the news.

Sen. Gordon Smith, and Rep. Greg Walden had been told, this was not an idle threat, that if they didn’t do something about this travesty, they’d be out of office in Oregon. They believed it.

The pair finally managed to board Air Force One on it’s way to Portland. They pointed out the overflowing Klamath Lake to Bush as they flew over,the reservoir that was supposed to be out of water.

When the president made his speech that night he said, “There are some folks down there (Klamath farmers) who haven’t been treated very well!” We were finally acknowledged. As usual, the president had been kept in the dark and knew nothing of the months long protest in So. Oregon and No. California.

9/11 soon became our American reality. Camp Headgate was shut down in support of our president and our troops that would defend us against Islamic Terrorists. As always Conservative protestors support this country first above their own personal interests. The farmers are still fighting for water each year. Many have not been able to continue the struggle.

It boggles the mind to think that a Texas Governor and president of the United States could not be aware of the perils of our Southern Border and mass illegal immigration. Our leaders do not live in our world, but in a bubble of protection and elitism. One has to ask what else he is so terribly uninformed about.

Time to shut down on illegal immigrants-Charlie Daniels

God bless America
Charlie Daniels
It seems that the U.S.A. has a history of waiting until the horse is gone before securing the proverbial barn door. In some cases it’s simply expensive or inconvenient, but in some cases it is downright dangerous.

Although few on the left are willing to admit, it’s pretty well known that Bill Clinton had at least three chances to take bin Ladin into custody and refused. We all know that we brought Saddam to his knees during the first Gulf War and sailed away without finishing the job, necessitating the second Gulf War.

We all know that our Congress usually takes so long in passing meaningful legislation that by the time it becomes law it is, many times, toothless and obsolete.

But one of the most dangerous things happening in our nation right now is the situation at our southern borders. Everyday illegals cross the international border of Mexico with impunity. Our cities are inundated with unpapered, non-English speaking aliens.
I have no problem with honest people coming to this country seeking a better life for them and their families, but when they come in illegally I am dead set against it. We don’t even know they’re here and we have no way of knowing what kind of people they are.

Are they Islamic sympathizers bent on destroying us and our way of life? Are they violent gang members who hire out to do murder and mayhem? Are they drug traffickers, fugitives from the law, disease carriers or political malcontents?

The fact is that when they simply walk across our borders we have no way of knowing who or what they are. Is this not insanity?

It has been proven that most politicians have not got the guts to deal with the situation. It’s not a Democratic or Republican thing, nor a left or right thing, it’s simply a political hot potato that will continue to grow bigger and hotter until it eventually explodes in one way or another.

These illegals are straining the budgets of every border state and now some politicians want to give them what’s tantamount to having undocumented American citizenship, allowing them to participate in social programs and entitlements.

There is no way that this situation is ever going to resolve itself. This is a festering sore that becomes bigger and more infected every passing day and, at sometime in the future, will manifest itself in some catastrophic result in this nation. Whether it comes in the form of a nuclear attack or some contagious, out-of-control disease, when it hits I hope that people in this nation will remember how our state and federal politicians left us vulnerable and defenseless, all in the cause of trying to buy themselves a few more votes.
In my book they’re all culpable - the president, Congress, Senate, governors and legislatures. It’s way past time to shut the barn door.

Mr. Reconquista, “ This is our continent Stupid Minutemen“



TheTownCrier
Feb. 8, 2006


If you have spent any time in the immigration/border reform debate, you’ve met this guy. We’ll call him Mr. Reconquista. He produces the signs at protests that admonish American citizens to “Go back to Europe, Gringo” and various other slurs. He posts in chat rooms accusing Americans of stealing his land. Usually he’s an illegal alien or “guest worker” , a product of the last amnesty, or an anchor baby intent on establishing a hispanic country within this nation. As reconquista UCLA Professor Armondo
Navarro states, “A nation within a nation”.

The conversation always degenerates into the usual, “It was our land first, Azatlan, white man invaded” ballyhoo.

Fine. Let’s cut to the chase. Show me a land deed. Get me your ancestors proof that you are even remotely related to the handful of Mexicans who inhabited the SouthWest in the early 1800’s. The progeny of those folks became proud US citizens. The odds are just too remote that anyone coming across our southern border today was ever related to those early Mexican settlers.

Let me tell you about “birthright”.

My grgrgrandfather was a Cherokee who fought the last battle of the civil war with his brother in law, Stand Watie in Indian Territory that is now Oklahoma. In 1832 he and others left New Echota, Georgia rather than be forced on the Trail of Tears. They left everything they’d built . This wasn’t the first time their land had been taken. This wasn’t a bunch of “teepees”, this was a modern productive town, with homes and businesses, even a newspaper. New immigrants took it over, buildings and all. How convenient.

The year after the civil war ended my grgrgrandmother died leaving her husband with several children, a once lucrative law practice and vast land holdings neglected by 5 years of battle and politics and unimaginable hell.

My great-grandmother was left mostly on her own and became an Indian slave to several monstrous husbands to survive. She died when my grandmother was 7 years old and was left to raise younger siblings and became an indentured servant. Through all this the land and fortune in Indian Territory was taken from those orphans. A multimillion dollar complex now sits on my ancestors land that they got nothing for. These people, who became poor as dirt, but refused to stay that way, were literate in 3 languages and left an enormous paper trail.

Shall I now tell all those people who live on my ancestors land from one coast of this country to the other to “Go back to Europe!”. Some of the current inhabitants are probably Mexican. Oh, my! Now what?

This country is mine because I am a native. It is my birthright.
This country is my brothers, who came here, knocked on the front door and ASKED permission to join the citizenry of the United States and pledged his allegiance and life to it.

Anyone else needs to go home and demand some rights in their own country. Don’t bring your mess here for me to fix. Don’t think you will own what it mine again. Been there, done that. If my ancestors had wanted me to live in a 3rd world banana republic like Mexico, they’d have taken it when they settled Texas. I can promise you it would not now be the corrupt oligarchy you so cherish.

This Indian will assure you of one thing.

If you truly believe your delusional movement of “Azatlan” can push out the rightful owners of this country, you will have it returned to you in the same condition your non existent ancestors found it two centuries ago.

No buildings. No roads. No cars. No Walmarts. No social services to raise your jackpot babies or schools to educate them in Spanish. My ancestors settled this nation and built it all and we don’t plan on leaving any of it again to belligerent invaders offspring.

Go home in peace while you can. Take your Mexican flags and demands out of my country.

Minutemen and Immigrants Face Off
Feb. 8, 2006

[snip] The Minutemen group was noticeably an older group of people, with a large percentage of them in their 50's and 60's. They were loosely spaced, with many casual conversations going on between them, and occasional chanting. Several Republican party stickers and items were present, which is ironic since it is Republican policy to allow businesses to have access to cheap labor by ignoring immigration laws in all but a token manner.

The counter protesters were very noticeably younger, mostly 20's and 30's and mostly Hispanic. They were tightly packed, making passage on the sidewalk difficult, and they chanted a lot more, mostly in Spanish. Chants such as "without borders" and "one people' were heard, and most signs denounced racism. No obvious Aztlan or Reconquista people were present, but there were two large Mexican flags that may indicate Reconquista sympathies among some people in the crowd.

It is obvious that the Minutemen are fighting a battle in a conflict that was already decided over 20 years ago. As seen in this map, the future of the southwest belongs to their opponents. Bush and his neocon cohorts have ceded it over, and all that is left is to become fluent in Spanish in order to converse with the new neighbors.

Every time in the last 25 years you didn't hire your neighbor's son or daughter to mow the lawn or babysit, but went with the really bargain priced labor, and then did the same for the construction project later on, you gave a little more toehold to someone who did not have all the paperwork in order. Then you voted for politicians who told you those sweet lies, and you bought it. But you got that deck built in back for a bargain price. We Americans did this to ourselves. Welcome the new neighbors because they are here to stay. Se habla español.

Why a guest worker program will not work!


Temporary workers are anything but temporary!


TheTownCrier
Feb. 7, 2006

President Bush has changed his words from "guest worker" to "temporary worker" in recent days. It's still amnesty no matter how he parses it. Case in point, seventy thousand Hondurans and 3,600 Nicaraguans and 222,000 Salvadorans.

Lou Dobbs reported last night , "hundreds of thousands of Central Americans have been allowed to stay and work in this country on a temporary basis and because of the crisis conditions in their country. Now, after years of extension, that temporary status may be running out. Most of these so-called temporary workers have no intention of returning home.

When Hurricane Mitch struck Honduras and Nicaragua in 1998, President Bill Clinton granted something called temporary protective status, allowing more than 100,000 people to stay here another 18 months without risk of deportation.

Eight years and five extensions later, a majority of those with temporary status remain. Seventy thousand Hondurans and 3,600 Nicaraguans are still here, with the right to work. And 222,000 Salvadorans are still here, temporarily working, five years after two earthquakes devastated El Salvador.

But even if their status expires, there's little chance they will be deported, since Immigration and Customs Enforcement's stated focus is national security and violent criminals. It raises questions about just how workable any so-called guest or temporary worker program can be."

A government spokesman states that no decision has been made yet whether to grant another extension on these temporary permits.

Christine Romans reports, " They will revert back to their prior status; in many cases, it was illegal. These people were here illegally in the first place. There was a natural disaster in their home country. They got temporary protective status. Now they've had children, they've been in this country for several years. Some of them have been here for decades. Becomes very, very difficult to remove them, unless, for some reason, major criminal, national security threat. That's when they would be removed. Even all this fear and this talk about, oh, a lot of people are going to be deported, no one really thinks they will be.

You've got almost a half a million people over the past decade who have been here on a temporary basis working, and 60 percent, 70 percent, 80 percent of these different nationalities have never left. So it shows perhaps that temporary workers are anything but temporary. They're human beings who come here for a life, start a family. There's no intention to leave."

The president's pet project, a massive guest worker program with six-year temporary cards, will be overseen by an agency already strapped with an alphabet soup of temporary worker plans, already impossible to enforce.

In fact, the new director of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service, Emilio Gonzalez, during his Senate confirmation process said, quote, "I don't think the system's -- in fact, I know the systems that exists right now wouldn't be able to handle it."

Sen. Specter Busy Adding Massive Foreign Guestworker Program to House Enforcement Bill

Just before Christmas, an overwhelming bi-partisan majority attached strong amendment after another to H.R. 4437 before passing this tough immigration enforcement bill AND legal immigration reduction bill. Click here to read all about what the bill does and how it was passed. Senate leaders now plan to pass their own immigration bill in March. The two bills will then go into a joint Conference Committee of negotiators who will create a compromise bill that goes back to both chambers of Congress for a final vote. It is expected that Senate Judiciary Chairman Arlen Specter (R-PA) will attempt to force backers of tough immigration enforcement to accept amnesty and guestworker programs as the only way that he will allow a crackdown on illegal immigration. Sen. Specter is expected to begin executing his plan this week with the hope of having it all in place for when he anticipates his committee will pass the amnesty/guestworker bill in March. Based on his sneak efforts in November, also anticipate that Sen. Specter will slip into the bill major increases in permanent green cards. For some reason, Sen. Specter and his staff have come to believe that no matter how outrageous their efforts for creating open borders and flooding American communities with foreign workers that the public won't really pay that much attention to them. (In November, he added 350,000 permanent worker slots EACH YEAR to the Budget Reconciliation bill. Fortunately, House leaders forced every single one of those slots out of the bill before final passage.)

THE 21st CENTURY PAUL REVERE RIDE




By Frosty Wooldridge
February 2, 2006
NewsWithViews.com

On the night of April 18, 1775, average citizen and Paul Revere jumped on his horse and galloped from Charleston to Lexington to warn of the British troops advancing from Boston. Later, Longfellow immortalized this gallant American in his epic poem, “The Midnight Ride of Paul Revere.”

Most Americans don’t know another fact about Revere: he led the Boston Tea Party. He earned a meager education, yet became a lieutenant-colonel in the army to fight the British. When his country called, he answered!

Revere illustrates what an average citizen can accomplish through sheer grit and determination. Call it ‘noble purpose’. Today, we have 21st century Paul Reveres in Chris Simcox, Jim Gilchrist, Tom Tancredo, Barbara Coe, Bonnie Eggle, Cindy Sheehan, Sherri Correll, Terry Anderson, Andy Ramirez, William Gheen, Mark Edwards, Peter Gadiel, Bill and Jan Herron, D.A. King, Robert Vasquez, Glenn Spencer, Garrett Chamberlain, Ezola Foster, Pat Buchanan, Lupe Moreno, Luca Zanna, T. J. Bonner and hundreds more across the land.

The fact is—this nation suffers an invasion that will prove its destruction if not stopped. We now know, especially after the State of the Union speech, our leaders languish behind pomp and circumstance. They decay behind rhetoric while we watch our country being invaded.

They fill the airwaves with words but no action. They talk about jobs but continue allowing endless millions crossing our borders without warrant—thus ensuring stolen jobs and depressing our wages. They encourage insourcing, offshoring and outsourcing ad nauseam. It’s not funny how General Motors failed and Ford follows with tens of thousands of jobs vanishing in the Midwest! I’ll bet you can’t wait to see the new car imported from China onto the US market! That car will drive our Middle Class into the new Poor Class.

“Rather than creating conditions that allow American workers to fill jobs at higher wages, what the president is proposing merely converts low wage illegal aliens into low wage workers with visas,” said Dan Stein, president of the Federation for American Immigration Reform after Bush’s speech. “Our economy would have to adapt if the influx of cheap foreign labor is ended, and that is an adjustment strongly desired by a majority of Americans, whether native-born or foreign-born. The concept that our economy must be served by a permanent under-class of foreign guest workers is reprehensible and unacceptable.”

The president referred to ‘hope’ repeatedly in his address. “But there is not much hope for Americans in blue-collar work being able to hold their jobs if the guest worker proposal is adopted,” Stein said. “Concerned citizens will not have much hope that today’s illegal workers will leave the country after being given six-year work permits, and they will simply have to hope that there is still a middle class in a few years. President Bush also talked about ‘stronger immigration enforcement and border protection,’ and we might hope that after decades of broken promises that this time he really means it, but the record does not justify much hope.”

Many of you know that my brother Howard has ridden his horse coast to coast across America, twice! You may know that I’ve pedaled my bicycle six times across America. Twice coast to coast! Howard and I are sons of average American citizens. Our mom was a farmer. Our dad was a small town boy. He became a career U.S. Marine.

My dad, Master Sergeant Howard Wooldridge said, “When you know you’re right, stand up for that right. It’s your responsibility to your family and your country.”

My brother Howard speaks all over the country to change the failure of the War on Drugs. I speak on the coming immigration-driven population nightmare. In the last few months, we decided along with other friends, that if Paul Revere could gallop his horse to bring America into being, we could pedal our country back to its original purpose—to defend and protect the U.S. Constitution. We’re not going to whine about the president or the Congress not doing their jobs. We will make them do their jobs.

As of February 2, 2006, we announce the “21st Century Paul Revere Ride” coast to coast across America.

1. Major objective: The 21st Century Paul Revere Riders’ major objective connects the dots for Americans of all walks of life, in small towns and big cities across America as to the dangers of unending legal and illegal immigration. Three teams, red, white and blue, of four riders will reach millions of Americans via 100--200 radio interviews, 200 TV interviews and an estimated 400 to 500 newspaper interviews from small town dailies to big city papers. We expect to reach in excess of 50-100 million Americans concerning the dangers of continued immigration-driven population growth that exceeds ‘carrying capacity’ within the United States. Riders on three separate routes--northern tier, central tier starting at the Golden Gate Bridge and southern tier--will cover 48 state capitols on their way to Washington, DC. We expect to impact the 2006 elections focusing on immigration. Extra bicyclists are welcome on this historic ride.

2. Three major aspects include:

A) Adding 100, 200 or 300 million more people to America will create

an unsustainable society mired with water shortages, environmental dilemmas as to polluted air, loss of farmland, non-renewable resources, diminished quality of life, lower standard of living, species extinction and many more consequences.
B) When the rate of immigration exceeds the rate of assimilation, it is

a recipe for the breakdown of any civilization. Riders will address Balkanization, loss of English language, loss of American culture, breakdown of education and other aspects fracturing America.
C) Each encounter with media will allow us to arrange and give

citizens information to contact local organizations to further work to affect national immigration limits.
3. Main audience: We expect to reach Middle Class America, who will, in

turn, impact local, state and federal elected leaders. Every Tom, Dick and Harry along with Linda, Paula and Mary will be given a voice.
4. Connecting the dots: We expect to center on the negative impacts

immigration thrusts on all Americans, their communities, cities, schools and language. We expect to enlighten and empower citizens toward action.
5. Major media contacts: Frosty Wooldridge/Howard Wooldridge will serve as

primary media contact persons. Both bring unequaled media experience. Howard Wooldridge resides in Washington, DC and Frosty Wooldridge will coordinate from the field as one of the Paul Revere Riders on the central tier route. wooldridge@leap.cc and frostyw@juno.com. Available seven days a week.

6. Supporting this coast to coast bicycle ride will be three donated RVs

equipped with computers, press kits, magnetic signs created for maximum exposure. All riders will wear T-shirts: “Stop Illegal Aliens: Ask Me How”. We have one major radio talk show host offering to become a moving radio station that will hook up to air waves across America for maximum radio impact. The Chuck Baker Show will interview thousands across America. Those interviews will be picked up and a video will be created of the entire ride. Sponsoring web sites will gain maximum press.

7. Great moments in American history exploded with such Americans as Paul

Revere. Others include the signing of the Declaration of Independence. Betsy Ross stitched and Jefferson wrote. Franklin advised. John Adams guided along with James Madison the great constitutionalist. Men gave their lives at Valley Forge. Later, Susan B. Anthony stood for voter rights for women. Dr. Martin Luther King stood for human rights. All of these great moments will vanish if we allow our borders to remain open to an unending line of legal and illegal immigrants. The structure, cohesiveness and fabric of America will not survive this human wave. We stand up, make a statement and change course—or we will find our nation in the death throes much like Paris, France; Amsterdam, Holland and Sydney, Australia.

8. Riders will be provided meals and transport to origin and from destination.

RV drivers will be provided fuel and food plus magnetic signs. We’re looking for bicycle riders who can speak well and give speeches with coordinated immigration groups in each state. Please contact frostyw@juno.com with your intentions to ride. We ride from May 10 or 20th to September 15 and over 4,200 miles while we reach small and big towns. Every American will be given a voice. If you have ideas for this ride, send them to me. We’re looking for every creative outlet to bring this issue to every TV and radio station across America.

9. We’re very close to gaining funding and will know by February 15, 2006. We’d like a documentary film crew to film this epic ride if one can be found. Yes, we’re going to need extra money for costs. Anyone who would like to donate may send checks to: ‘21st Century Paul Revere Ride’ C/O Frosty Wooldridge, P.O.Box. 207, Louisville, CO 80027. Over $350 billion of your tax dollars have been spent bombing and building Iraq. Let’s spend money to save our own country. We’ll have a web site illustrating the routes and the progress of the ride.

All that needs to be asked is what is the value of our nation, of our way of life and the prospects for our children: the future of the United States?
