Kate Krader ~ April 1, 2017
Restaurant workers in the Mile High City are asking: Why work in a stressful kitchen when you can make $22 an hour in a greenhouse?
“… the city is facing a major problem as a result of one of its biggest recent tourism drivers. The pot industry is taking a toll on local restaurant work forces and in some cases, liquor sales. . . . ” . . Read Complete Report

Juan Pablo Escobar Henao, son of notorious Medellín cartel drug kingpin, Pablo Escobar, now says his father “worked for the CIA.”
“… Where his first book primarily covered Escobar, the man as a father, Marroquín’s second — which has just been released in Argentina — delves into the kingpin’s “international ties of corruption in which my father had an active participation, among them with the American CIA,” he said in a recent interview. . . .”
“… If the CIA trafficking cocaine into the United States sounds like some tin foil conspiracy theory, think again. Their alleged role in the drug trade was exposed in 1996 in an explosive investigative series “Dark Alliance” by Gary Webb for the San Jose Mercury News. The investigation, headed up by Webb revealed ties between the CIA, Nicaraguan Contras and the crack cocaine trade ravaging African-American communities. . . .” Read Complete Report

Colonel James Bo Gritz the real Rambo, commanded detachment “B-36,” U.S. Army Special Forces. With 62 decorations for valor, Gritz was the most decorated Green Beret of the Vietnam War. In the 1980s Gritz undertook a series of private trips into Southeast Asia, purportedly to locate United States prisoners of war which as part of the Vietnam War POW/MIA issue some believed were still being held by Laos and the Socialist Republic of Vietnam.

Governor Brown has expressed his intent to defy Federal / Presidential orders to deport criminal illegal aliens. But weather this past week has dumped enough rain to endanger 350,000 legal residents with sudden floods. The money that is being spent to maintain all the services for those illegal immigrants could have been spent on infrastructure, including the Oroville dam.
It looks like the whole west coast is in for another week of the same weather pattern. Brown may be swept away himself before this is over.
The “wall” will most likely be re-enforced precast concrete, vertical steel erected like highway noise barrier at 20′ high. Going rate (along our highways) about $1.5 million per mile. However, there is already some form of wall or barrier along some 650 miles of the border. But let’s say we wanted all the border to have nice new bight and shiny wall to make it pretty. Then the total construction would be around $2,899,000,000.00 ($2.9 Billion). Installed. Trump’s estimate was $8 to $10 Billion. And given the efficiency of government and government contractors, he’s probably not all that far off.
Of course, the wall by itself won’t be a 100% effective as a deterrent. Enforcement of existing and future policies and laws regarding immigration will be carried out by the US Border Patrol under the the management of Department of Homeland Security (another boondoggle factor, to be sure. So let’s say it costs $15 Billion.)
As to the number of Border Patrol agents required to cover 3 shifts, there are already 21,000 US Border Patrol Agents. Only about 2/3rds of those are along the Mexican border. Beginning about 2009 they have been hampered in enforcing the law by presidential decree. The agents are already trained, equipped, outfitted, and anxious to get back to doing their damn jobs. They are assisted by dogs, horses, drones, night vision cameras, night vision goggles, boats, airboats, hover craft, helicopters, planes and aerostats, thermal imagers, first rate communications arrays, ground sensors, and some of the best detection equipment the US can buy. The only thing they haven’t had in the past eight years is permission to do their damn jobs.
Illegal workers send (by wire transfer) $21 to $24 Billion home to Mexico (and Guatamala, Honduras, Belize, China, Russia, other) via Wells Fargo and other wire transfer every year. That’s $21 Billion REMOVED from the USGDP every year. Worse, it’s removed from local areas with highest numbers of illegal aliens. And it doesn’t include the free schooling, free health care, food stamps, nor does it reflect the estimated $150 Billion in drug money that is sent via other, less traceable means. “The Remittance Status Verification Act, introduced by then-Senator David Vitter (R-La.) in 2014 but never passed into law, would have fined senders of international cash transfers seven percent of the transfer amount if they could not show “proof of status under U.S. immigration laws.” (Source)
So that means that the $21 Billion just grew to more than $200 Billion.
In other words, a $3 Billion dollar wall coupled with a fee to send US dollars by illegal aliens will pay for the wall in about a month. But that won’t stem the tide of money leaving. It will, however, help stem the tide of illegal aliens.
Coats: Fifth Circuit’s Ruling Reaffirms President’s Role is to Execute, not Alter, Law
WASHINGTON, DC — Senator Dan Coats (R-Ind.) today issued the following statement regarding a ruling by the Fifth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals that rejects President Obama’s executive amnesty:
“The Fifth Circuit’s ruling reaffirms that President Obama’s role is to faithfully execute the law, not alter or ignore it as he sees fit. I applaud the court’s ruling to halt President Obama’s executive actions on immigration, and I will closely watch this case as it continues. In the meantime, I will continue to work with my colleagues in Congress to conclusively stop the president’s blatant disregard for our nation’s system of checks and balances.”
As Libertarians, we seek a world of liberty; a world in which all individuals are sovereign over their own lives and no one is forced to sacrifice his or her values for the benefit of others.
We believe that respect for individual rights is the essential precondition for a free and prosperous world, that force and fraud must be banished from human relationships, and that only through freedom can peace and prosperity be realized.
Consequently, we defend each person’s right to engage in any activity that is peaceful and honest, and welcome the diversity that freedom brings. The world we seek to build is one where individuals are free to follow their own dreams in their own ways, without interference from government or any authoritarian power.
In the following pages we have set forth our basic principles and enumerated various policy stands derived from those principles.
These specific policies are not our goal, however. Our goal is nothing more nor less than a world set free in our lifetime, and it is to this end that we take these stands.
Monday, Gallup published a new poll showing that 49% of Americans think that “the federal government poses an immediate threat to the rights and freedoms of ordinary citizens.”
This is up from 30% in 2003.
Gallup also asked participants, “In what ways do you see the government posing an immediate threat to rights and freedoms of its citizens?”
Top responses were: too many laws/big government (19%); violations of civil liberties (15%); and violations of 2nd Amendment rights (12%).
Now, not all candidates who espouse the same principles as the Libertarian Party are actually registered as party members. However, one of the current crop of presidential candidates has repeatedly supported both the principles and goals described in the platform preamble. That candidate is Rand Paul.
Senator Paul is consistent (and prolific) in the art of being a peoples’ representative rather than a DC insider. Doctor Paul describes his political leanings as being in the “liberty wing’ of the Republican Party. He is not alone in that, but did you ever hear of that? No. MSM will not air that phrase.
And, as a high point for us at THEI, he wants to make the Federal Reserve accountable. Fully accountable.
From a guaranteed right to hormone therapy for transgendered illegal aliens, to a prospective Attorney General saying that illegals have the same right to a job as US citizens or legal immigrants, the ongoing sham of the Obama administration’s under-the-radar policies get seen in the light of day in Bill Whittle’s latest FIREWALL.
