Remembrance Project raises issue of victims of violent crime by illegal aliens

This part of the Remembrance Project quilt shows children who are victims of violent crimes by illegal aliens. (Snip: The Remembrance Project)The Remembrance Project is a national effort aimed at raising awareness of victims of crimes committed by illegal aliens. The project gets little attention from legacy media. Our president has never spoken out about victims of such crimes, although they are often brutal and committed in cold blood.

What happened to Laura Wilkerson’s 18 year old son is unimaginable. What happened to Jennifer Ertman, 14, and Elizabeth Peña, 16, is also unimaginable. Those are but a few of the victims.

IRS scandals past and present drive home need for tax code reform

Updated on Wednesday, June 26, 2013 at 9:38AM by Registered CommenterKay B. Day, Editor

Photo: IRSThe Internal Revenue Service has repeatedly been rocked by scandals involving employee fraud, runaway refunds to illegal aliens, and persecution of conservative groups seeking tax exempt status.

Every American should be concerned when an agency as powerful as IRS undergoes a slow implosion reflecting lack of integrity in top management and lack of accountability when employees are called to testify before Congress.

Even when controversial managers refuse to answer questions about the taxpayer funded work they do, those same managers are kept on payroll. There is an obvious need for reform of the federal employee unions who control the federal bureaucracy—taxpayers have no advocate.

Scandals at IRS are nothing new—they’ve been going on for years.

FBI raid on Miami office of doctor who is friend, donor to Sen. Menendez

Allegations have surfaced about New Jersey Sen. Bob Menendez's trips to the Dominican Republic with a scandalized donor and friend. (Map: CIA World Fact Book)Sen. Bob Menendez (D-N.J.) has been going through a rough patch. The latest headache for the man expected to become the chairman of the powerful Senate Foreign Relations Committee involves allegations about teen prostitutes in the Dominican Republic.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation has raided the offices of a Miami doctor who is a friend of Menendez and who donated to the senator's campaign. The allegations involve trips that the senator allegedly took with the doctor.

Tainted architects in current immigration reform: Schumer and Menendez

No one doubts that immigration reform is necessary. Immigrants who truly value the potential in American freedom go through years of bureaucratic entanglement and expensive legal fees before American citizenship is gained.

Careful study of numerous federal reports as well as studies from the private sector suggest the federal bureaucracy and elected officials completely failed to fulfill promises made when the Immigration Reform and Control Act was passed in 1986. Ironically, Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) was a major influencer in IRCA and he will exert major influence on pending legislation.

There’s more irony in potential influence from Sen. Bob Menendez (D-N.J.) who is reportedly headed to serve as chair of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

Both Schumer and Menendez are tainted. Neither Democrat should be part of immigration reform.

After hiring registered sex offender, senator faces allegations about sex with minors

Sen. Bob Menendez faces allegations he had sex with minors. (Photo: U.S. Senate pages)Bob Menendez initially came to the U.S. Senate via an appointment by former New Jersey governor Jon Corzine. Corzine is certainly no stranger to scandal, and now Menendez is entangled in controversy as well.

Sex with underage girls and hiring an intern with a criminal record are part of the allegations leveled at Menendez who won reelection after his appointment.

Front line on the border: Any alien can claim to be a “dreamer” in Obama’s new plan


Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) hosted a press conference on Thursday, calling attention to chaos caused by President Barack Obama’s refusal to fully enforce federal laws related to illegal aliens in the country. Obama’s Dept. of Homeland Security bypassed Congress to announce what amounts to amnesty for those described as “young people who are low enforcement priorities.”

Now any alien can claim to be a "dreamer" and authorities must release him or her.

With 14 dead in pickup carrying 23, U.S. media whitewash tragedy

Updated on Tuesday, July 24, 2012 at 8:27AM by Registered CommenterKay B. Day, Editor

Reuters was alone in national media in identifying the people involved in the Texas road crash on Sunday. The local daily identified them near the end of the story, but the label is misleading, more given to politics than fact. (Screen snip from Web news site)

U.S. media routinely refuse to identify illegal aliens accused of crimes or involved in accidents. By not properly identifying subjects being covered, media does a disservice to the public it claims to inform.

A perfect example of that unethical policy occurred in coverage of a traffic accident that occurred in Texas on Sunday.

DHS chief’s nod to climate change and wildfires begs question: Did she read GAO report?

Helicopters are used for fire suppression by the U.S. Forest Service. [Photo: U.S. Forest Service News Release]Dept. of Homeland Security chief Janet Napolitano linked climate change to the Colorado wildfires, according to The Hill:

“You have to look at climate change over a period of years, not just one summer,” Napolitano said. “You could always have one abnormal summer. But when you see one after another after another then you can see, yeah, there’s a pattern here.”

Did Napolitano read the U.S. Government Accountability Office report on wildfires? After all, she was govenor of Arizona, so you'd think that report would catch her eye.

Illegal aliens, U.S. citizens and forest practices fodder for debate on wildfires

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service conducts prescribed burns in hopes of reducing potential damage to property when a wildfire occurs. (Photo: Branch of Fire Management/USFWS)When there’s a wildfire in a large forested area, it’s inevitable that the global warming alarmist bloc will jump to conclusions that carbon emissions are the indirect cause.

What media doesn’t present a full picture on is the impact of illegal aliens, U.S. citizens and federal forestry practices on wildfires. We could call it the human non-carbon factor.
