'Displaced Foreign Traveler' - Get Your PC speech here!!!
The Obama administration's Forest Service has a new term for ILLEGAL ALIEN....
'Displaced Foreign Traveler'
I kid you not! Lars Larson brought this to our attention yesterday, mentioning the continuing plantation grows of Marijuana by armed Mexican Drug Cartels in our National forests and parks in So. Oregon and No. California.
The term was used in a U.S. Forest Service news release, sent out to the media Tuesday morning, about a marijuana raid earlier this month. It describes Gauldry Almonte-Hernandez, a citizen of Michoacán, Mexico as a “displaced foreign traveler.”
A Redding Searchlight editorial satirizes the incident:
A Forest Service law-enforcement dog team ran down Almonte-Hernandez, who, the Forest Service says, faces a federal charge of manufacturing a controlled substance that, if he is convicted, could carry a 10-year prison sentence.

Nearly 300,000 marijuana plants have been pulled from illegal gardens in Shasta County, Ca. so far this month, said Sgt. Steve Solus, who heads the Shasta County Sheriff’s Office marijuana eradication efforts.
Solus said the busts will easily eclipse the record number of 630,000 plants pulled in Shasta County last year.
Law enforcement officials have pulled more than 92,000 plants from illegal gardens in the Shasta-Trinity National Forest this month alone, forest spokeswoman Rita Vollmer said today.
The largest garden was near Hayfork, in which 46,000 plants were found in a single garden, Vollmer said.
Forest service law enforcement officers also arrested one man, Gauldry Almonte-Hernandez, of Mexico who ran during a raid on July 9 near Hayfork, Vollmer said.
Solus said that his agents have arrested around 20 suspects in connection with the grows. Most the suspects were Mexican growers arrested on suspicion of federal drug trafficking charges, he said.
Hispanic-based gangs, motorcycle gangs and prison gangs have set their sights on Shasta County, multiple sources confirm.
"This is an untouched area for gangs," Anderson Police Chief Dale Webb said. "We believe there's a push to get a foothold here."
The attraction of Shasta County to gangs is access to the Interstate 5 corridor and routes to the coast, according to Sheriff Tom Bosenko. He added that limited law enforcement staffing and lack of gang control also makes the area attractive.
Along with 81 congressmen, Rep. Duncan Hunter & Tom McClintock, R-California, signs Amicus Brief supporting Arizona Immigration Law, which includes 5 US Senators... Wicker, DeMint, Vitter, Inhofe, Barrasso, but NO John McCain!
[snip] The bipartisan Immigration Reform Caucus, 76 members of the House of Representatives and five U.S. Senators have waded into the lawsuit by the Obama administration in U.S. vs. Arizona in support of Arizona.
Let your Congressional Members know that you support the Arizona law, and you want them to join in filing this brief. Send a fax or an e-mail by entering your ZIP Code and clicking “Go!”
[snip]I believe Arizona’s Immigration Law S.B. 1070 is going to be damn effective. In fact I think it should be adopted across the United States. What special insight do I have into the matter? I used to be an illegal alien.
ANOTHER THING!!!!! Obama coming after your GOLD!
Gold Coin Sellers Angered by New Tax Law
abcnews.com ^ | 07/21/10 | RICH BLAKE
Those already outraged by the president's health care legislation now have a new bone of contention -- a scarcely noticed tack-on provision to the law that puts gold coin buyers and sellers under closer government scrutiny.
Starting Jan. 1, 2012, Form 1099s will become a means of reporting to the Internal Revenue Service the purchases of all goods and services by small businesses and self-employed people that exceed $600 during a calendar year. Precious metals such as coins and bullion fall into this category and coin dealers have been among those most rankled by the change.
This provision, intended to mine what the IRS deems a vast reservoir of uncollected income tax, was included in the health care legislation ostensibly as a way to pay for it. The tax code tweak is expected to raise $17 billion over the next 10 years, according to the Joint Committee on Taxation. [snip]
What's this all about????? An earlier article explains it....buyers and sellers of Gold, silver, etc. will have to file a 1099 tax form for every transaction of $600.00.
$600 Sale? Get Ready for Tax Form
[snip]The responsibility for issuing forms kicks in at $600 for coins or bullion – not a very high level and one that has already started sounding alarm bells. It doesn’t matter in what form payment is made, whether cash, check, credit card, or Yap stone money, the $600 threshold applies.
There’s a bill introduced by Rep. Dan Lungren (H.R. 5141), which has gathered over 80 members of Congress as co-sponsors to repeal this section. Evidently, however, the drafters of the provision think there is a $17 billion loophole that this plugs.
