According to Lt. Steve Rogers, a decorated cop and award-winning writer, there are tens of thousands of murderers, rapists, child predators, robbers and drug dealers who are illegally in the United States. One study shows over 200,000 criminal aliens are preying on US citizens.
Border Patrol agents in the Tucson, AZ Sector have apprehended 27,834 illegal aliens with criminal records, 74 of which were for homicide. Last fiscal year, the Tucson Sector apprehended 14,506 illegal aliens with criminal records. These figures do not include the thousands of criminal aliens apprehended by Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents or those in other Border Patrol sectors in other states. And it doesn't include the tens of thousands of criminal aliens who are able to escape detect at the border.
POLITICIANS ARE LIKE SNAKE OIL SALESMEN

For the past seven months in Southern Arizona, politics and events on the border are normal, with no major change from events reported in 2003. Most human trafficking and narcotics smugglers control the vast network of "walking trails" leading from the Border at Sasabe, Nogales. People have been "shot" and murdered but these events are of little importance nationwide. The Arizona Star carries the local trivia.

At least three of the Fort Dix Six were in this country illegally. They were brothers. They owned a roofing company. Again, that’s not a job American workers won’t do, so what could they possibly be doing here? That’s when it hit me. Being a member of a terrorist cell is the one job Americans just won’t do.
Amnesty Opens Door For Foreign Occupation Of U.S.
Reform Bill drafted in secret by foreign stakeholders, not even provided to Senators to read
The legislation would grant undocumented workers who came into the country before January a permit to remain. They could then apply for a new, four-year "Z Visa," renewable indefinitely, as long as they pay a $5,000 fine, a $1,500 processing fee, show a clean work record and pass a criminal background check (even though they entered the US illegally, so are criminals).
The "Z visas" also pave the way for "chain immigration" allowing an immigrant to bring in relatives. Previously chain immigration was limited to immediate family members. New legislation will open it to include possibly more than 11 family members of any relation. Once those family members become resident they too will be able to bring in their extended families and so on.

In a desperate attempt to make Rudy Giuliani out to be the hero of Tuesday night’s debate, Fox News is continuing to attack Texas Congressman Ron Paul for something he did not say. In the latest installment of this campaign, John Gibson of Fox News says that Paul “suggested that the U.S. actually had a hand in the [9/11] terrorist attacks.” No, what he said was that U.S. foreign policy was a reason why Osama bin Laden attacked America. This is a fact.
But Who Was Right – Rudy or Ron?
by Patrick J. Buchanan
Rudy implied that Ron Paul was unpatriotic to suggest the violence against us out of the Middle East may be in reaction to U.S. policy in the Middle East. Was President Hoover unpatriotic when, the day after Pearl Harbor, he wrote to friends, "You and I know that this continuous putting pins in rattlesnakes finally got this country bitten." ...By all means, throw out of the debate the only man who was right from the beginning on Iraq.

Blaming Uncle Sam Last
by Michael Tennant
First let’s set one thing straight: America and its federal government are two completely different entities. Was America, the conglomeration of its individual citizens, responsible for provoking the 9/11 attacks? Of course not. Was the U.S. government, the world’s largest organized crime ring, responsible for provoking the attacks? Absolutely. Unfortunately, innocent Americans were made to suffer for their government’s attempts to run the world.

At least Ronald Reagan said goodbye to a corrupt UNESCO, walked out, and killed the U.N. power grab of the world's oceans and their resources by refusing even to consider the Law of the Sea Treaty. And President Bush? He has rejoined UNESCO, started paying dues again and, says WorldNetDaily, is about to push to have Congress bring the United States under the Law of the Sea Treaty.

Do Conservatives Hate Their Own Founder?
by Thomas E. Woods, Jr.
Kirk’s opposition to relentless war makes him a "liberal" in NR’s lexicon. Now it’d be kind of hard to describe the key founder of modern American conservatism as a liberal – harder even than NR’s task of making the obviously corrupt (and personally sleazy) former federal prosecutor Rudy Giuliani seem like something we should want in a U.S. president. So the whole Kirk problem is simply passed over in silence.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
ARLINGTON, VA – During the "First in the South" GOP debate in South Carolina last night, one thing was made clear: Rudy Giuliani does not understand how to keep America safe.
When Congressman Ron Paul, who has long served on the House Foreign Affairs Committee, explained how 50 years of American interventionism in the Middle East has helped compromise our national security, Giuliani interrupted saying he had "never heard anything so absurd." This statement is particularly troubling coming from the former mayor who tries to cast himself as a security expert, since Dr. Paul's point comes directly from the bi-partisan 9-11 Commission Report.
"Rudy Giuliani has tip-toed around the issues of abortion, guns and marriage. The only issue he has left is security, and he doesn't even get that right," said campaign chairman Kent Snyder. "It is clear from his interruption that former Mayor Giuliani has not read the 9-11 Commission Report and has no clue on how to keep America safe."
A new video of Congressman Ron Paul speaking in New Hampshire is now available. The video is titled "Educating Rudy" as in Rudy Giuliani.

Blow the ASWAN High Dam
by Lieutenant Colonel Daniel Marvin United States Army Special Forces (Retired)
Author of Victory Edition - Expendable Elite - One Soldier's Journey Into Covert Warfare
Some of the most interesting, even fascinating, subjects taught us in the Special Warfare School Officer's Course in the spring of 1964 were included in the special demolition techniques portion of training. The "ear muff" charge was taught by way of a dramatic demonstration that left no doubt in our minds of its unique nature and explosive effectiveness. Instructors would diametrically oppose two identical charges of plastic explosives (C-4) on a round bridge support column, arming each with an identical detonator and attaching equal lengths of lead wire to the one detonating device. When the device was triggered both charges would explode simultaneously, sending the force of the explosion into the center of the column from opposing directions. When those forces collided in the middle of the column, as was surely demonstrated, the column itself seemed to explode outwardly from its own center with sufficient force to destroy it. The earmuff charge was designed to be used on wood and concrete columns or trusses, etc.
The dust-initiator charge was an awesome special demolition technique needing a target that meets certain "confined space" parameters. We used a railroad boxcar to demonstrate how it or any other enclosed area could be made into a bomb using what would be considered readily available material. Within that confined space whole grain oats, wheat or rye, or sawdust if available, would be impregnated with incendiary material and a small but powerful explosive device would be used to fill the air space in the target (a boxcar, office, warehouse or a home) with that incendiary material. A fraction of a second later a separate flame-producing charge would be triggered to ignite the incendiary laden material, causing the space to become a bomb! A considerable amount of death and destruction would follow if used in the right place at the right time. We were all convinced of that fact as students when that boxcar located a few hundred yards to our front was detonated and blown apart as if it were a cracker box.
Other special demolition techniques taught at the Special Warfare Center included home made napalm, iron pipe hand grenades, nail grenades, wine bottle cone charges, chemical fire bottles, acid-delay incendiary devices, chemical fire bottles, ribbon explosive charges and sabotage using thermite grenades.
Terrorism techniques taught at the school, including a wide variety of intimidation methods, such as the use of poisonous snakes to elicit fear, will be discussed In Part 10 of this series titled Psychological Warfare Operations.
Much earlier in life, when I was 16 and worked for Daniel T. Walker, a farmer near New Lennox, Illinois, where I was first introduced to the peaceful use of explosives. Walker farmed 2,500 acres, fed 500 head of white-faced Hereford cattle and 400 head of black and white Poland China hogs that he took to market in the Chicago stockyards.
It was he who taught his son Roe and me to use dynamite to remove old and newly cut stumps as a part of the clearing operation to remove hedgerows, making one bigger field out of two smaller ones for more efficient grain production. We used a standard plunger type detonating device and electric detonators. I was impressed with the lifting power of a stick of dynamite that had been dug in under a stump and tamped with wetted soil. The dynamite exploded and lifted the entire stump out of the ground sufficiently to expose all the roots. We'd cut the roots about a foot below the surface of the ground so they would not interfere with cultivation of crops, remove the stump and root stubs and fill in the depression with dirt from the surrounding area.
Once on the job as S-4 for the 6th Special Forces Group, my major task was making certain our far-flung operational teams were adequately supplied with items essential to the effective conduct of the team mission and the survival of the team members. Scattered around the world as Mobile Training Teams (MTTs) they would be re-supplied by both normal and unconventional methods. Airdrop, international postal services, special courier, even the use of another agency of our government made up the wide spectrum of ways and means to get what was needed to our MTTs, many of whom were "in country" acting as civilians.
I carried an atomic bomb! In the summer of 1964 I volunteered to command the first eight-man team of Special Forces volunteers that would take a man-portable atomic device into a target area by parachute to destroy targets we volunteered to destroy. There were a total of four teams trained to carry and activate the SADM (Special Atomic Demolition Munition) device. As team leader of the 6th Special Forces Group team I would carry the 95 lb device and my XO would carry the 35 lb trigger mechanism. Once on the ground in the target area we would first scout out a location within 15 minutes walking distance of the target site and quietly dig or prepare a pre-existing covered location such as a cave for our protection from the explosion and fallout. We would, after scouting the area during daylight hours, move with the device once darkness was again our protector to the detonation location, lock the two parts together, arm the device and return quickly to our own survival site.
The scientist who brought the "device" from the Seneca Army Depot in NY State in an unmarked 3/4 ton truck for the purpose of indoctrinating us in its operation told us this first model, with an explosive force equal to ten tons of TNT, was actually the "trigger" for a hydrogen bomb. It was he who thought it to be an excellent weapon for Green Berets to carry to a site in Parachutists' adjustable equipment bags (PAE bags). Of course you had to volunteer as it was a suicide mission! Those initial SADMs used the timing device from a commercial washing machine, or so he told us. How true I don't know, but I do know that the maximum time we could set for the blast delay was 15 minutes and that made it absolutely necessary to put together a team of brave men who liked to push the odds, take any risks that others would shy away from. There seemed to be no shortage of such men within the ranks of the Special Forces.
If there had been an activation of the contingency mission - which was to destroy the hydroelectric plant in Egypt's ASWAN high dam - we would secure the SADM devices in their special canvas containers, similar to the parachutist's adjustable equipment (PAE) bag, along with other PAE bags loaded with sharp entrenching tools, survival rations, skyhook harnesses and special radio equipment that would act as air-to-ground communications and homing signal devices for our post-mission pick up by C-130 aircraft equipped with a "skyhook" system.
We would use the most effective way to infiltrate the site with the device attempting to avoid detection. We would use the high altitude high opening (HAHO) method, go in at 30,000 feet over the ASWAN High Dam on a moonless night, exit the aircraft up wind to compensate for winds at various altitudes, based on conditions at the time. Once outside the aircraft our extra heavy clothing would keep us from freezing and oxygen equipment would keep us alive until we got below 20,000 feet. We would then glide for the entire distance to the landing point with little fear of being detected.
If there was even a trace of a moon we'd have to opt for the High Altitude Low Opening (HALO) method, leaving the aircraft at 30,000 feet but not opening our parachutes until we were almost on the ground. We would literally "fly" toward the target, using our extended arms to steer the course. Legs would be of little use as they were tied together with PAE bag straps. We'd be dropping fast by the time we got to 1000 feet above the ground where it was essential to "pop" our canopies and hone in on the area we'd predetermined to be sufficient distance from perimeter security lighting to be relatively safe from immediate detection, but yet nearby the upper entrance to the dam site where our target was located.
The intelligence we needed to provide us accurate target site information was derived from "'company" sources, including a Mafia-owned, CIA employed construction company out of Massachusetts that was in Egypt at the time on an "arranged" contract to help the Russians build the dam using mostly Egyptian labor. Strange bedfellows, I thought at the time, but perhaps necessary to got the job done. If the mob men got it right we'd be honing in on a location about four hundred yards from the fence that surrounded the hydroelectric station with its six huge water tunnels and we would have in hand the blueprints needed to place the device for maximum destructive results. I must admit that at the time I thought nothing about the potential loss of lives or widespread contamination downstream where millions of Egyptians lived and depended on the Nile for water.
Needless to say, the contingency mission remained just that and the geographies of politics in that region changed sufficiently to remove the ASWAN High Dam from danger of Special Forces actions as was envisioned when I commanded that small team of death-defying volunteers. Of the approximately 10,000 active and retired Army Special Forces, only one has come forward, willing to go before Congress and corroborate what I would tell of the SADM mission. He is a retired Master Sergeant who was on the same SADM team that I had organized in 1964, he was there two years later and they had the same contingency mission and a better timing device!
I did not, however, forget the SADM devices and how easily two men could carry, place and detonate a miniature atomic device. When the World Trade Towers, Pentagon and the field in Pennsylvania were attacked by terrorist-driven aircraft, I thought back over my years in the Special Forces and what we'd learned about terrorist-type activities and came to realize that the potential existed for our stockpile of SADMs to fall into the hands of terrorists and be used against us or our allies if they were not adequately protected.
After providing the New York State Police information on the SADM and some "how to" on suspension bridge destruction, thinking it a good idea to advise Governor Ridge on this matter, I wrote him as follows:
8 October 2001
TO: Governor Tom Ridge, Homeland Security VIA FAX
C/o THE WHITE HOUSE Please forward to Governor Ridge's Office
The following was sent to the New York State Police Syracuse Office on 15 October 2001 and I thought I should send the information to your office for application on a nationwide basis. I failed in my attempt to get your FAX number thus I send it through the White House fax facility.
I was involved in a considerable amount of training at the Special Warfare Center at Fort Bragg in 1964 and have been involved in a few assignments that had to do with the type of actions a terrorist may consider In this time of terror attacks on our own soil.
I enclose my bio just for some background information and a copy of page 304 of JCS Pub 1 dated September 1974 as it contains the definition of the SADM (Special Atomic Demolition Munition).
The first item of concern is the SADM as it is a powerful man-portable atomic device that could be used to destroy or disable power stations, particularly those that are a part of a hydroelectric power generating capability which would, if blown - not only destroy a power source, but contaminate the water that was the source of power, carrying potential deadly and/or injury/sickness laden water (from radiation) down-river, which would then affect tens of thousands of people. When I was in the 6th Special Forces Group at Fort Bragg in 1964 I volunteered to head one of three eight-man teams that had contingency missions with the SADM. My primary mission at the time was the power distribution facility of the ASWAN High Dam in Egypt. The dam was under construction by the Soviet Union at the time with the assistance of a US construction company out of Boston, Mass. At that time the SADM devices were stored at Seneca Army Depot (now closed, as you know). The bomb itself weighed about 95 lbs and the trigger device about 35 lbs. If there are any of those devices still in our inventory, the storage areas should be (and I feel certain already are) under close surveillance and high security.
Second; I believe that suspension bridges, such as the Brooklyn Bridge, are particularly vulnerable to attack and would be the kind of target that would have a great impact on not only the thousands of people who may be on it at the time, but disrupt a great deal of traffic capability. I recall being told in a special demolition course that it would be best to blow only one end of one suspension group of cables immediately adjacent to the concrete abutments. When severed, the cable would allow the bridge to twist and turn as it fell, causing real havoc.
If you would like any other thoughts that come in mind from my previous training or experience, just let me know by FAX and give me your fax number.
Signed, Daniel Marvin
By the end of the week, having heard nothing from his office, I wrote a second letter to follow-up:
2 November 2001
TS: TR01 1102
TO: Governor Tom Ridge, Homeland Security VIA FAX
C/o THE WHITE HOUSE Please forward to Governor
Dear Governor Ridge,
Reference is made to my fax dated 28 October 2001 that I sent to you via The White House Fax 0 as shown above.
Inasmuch as this fax concerned extremely dangerous subjects of interest during this terrorist attack sensitive time, I would like to know if you received it. And, I would like to know the proper fax number, telephone number and address for your office should I think of something else that may be of interest to Homeland Security
My 28 Oct 01 fax referred to my 15 October 2001 fax to the New York State Police, telling of my being involved in a considerable amount of training at the Special Warfare Center at Fort Bragg in 1964 and my being involved in a few assignments that-had to do with the type of actions a terrorist may consider in this time of terror attacks on our own soil. I went on to discuss the need to locate and safeguard all stocks of man-portable Special Atomic Demolition Munition and to indicate the potential danger to Suspension Bridges to attack by terrorists.
I know your office is most active and I do not expect a formal response should you feel that merely penning the answers to my questions hereon and returning same by fax is sufficient for your office management criteria.
signed Daniel Marvin
I did receive an excellent response from the Now York State Police, who were themselves waiting instructions from Governor Ridge's office. But, other than the standard "boiler plate" reply on an official postcard (postmarked 24 Jan 02) mailed some three months after my Inquiry and more than two and a half months after my follow-up letter) thanking me for my "suggestions" and then stating unequivocally that "An appropriate member of our staff will respond directly to you."
Years have passed and I have yet to hear from that "appropriate member."
I now ask the readers to judge for themselves if there is any possible reason for their lack of response and even more, their ignoring a potential danger of such magnitude as I posed to them. They have made no attempt to contact this former Green Beret combat veteran with experience in overt and covert, even independent unconventional warfare and whose credentials are immediately available to them. They would know, on reviewing my military records, that I have been a credit to this nation in time of war and peace, contingency planning and with the experience necessary to be of value in any study on potential terrorist activity. Perhaps you should write your Senators and your Congressmen and demand they call me before Congress to testify about this matter and the aiding and abetting of the enemy as I prove to be the case in my book Victory Edition - Expendable Elite - One Soldier's Journey Into Covert Warfare. It is time for action!

Supporters of ALIPAC:
DC sources tell us that the Cloture vote on the amnesty bill has been pushed back to Monday, while secret sellout meetings continue between the Democrats, Republicans, and White House.
We want to issue a very important advisory to each of you.
We have monitored several "news" reports coming out of DC that are designed to lull American citizens into a false sense of comfort that this deal will not pass. PLEASE DO NOT LISTEN TO THE DISINFORMATION CAMPAIGNS. DO NOT RELAX YOUR EFFORTS TILL YOU HEAR IT FROM US!
We are lucky that we have gained a few extra days to work on the DC and District offices.
Special thanks to the ALIPAC activists that report they have drafted friends, relatives and neighbors to form 2-6 person call teams to amplify their efforts. It is good to see that kind of leadership in motion for our team.
We know that the corporations have set up special toll free numbers and have the illegal aliens calling against you.
We also know that illegal alien supporters have been advised to lie to Congressional staff by saying that anyone calling against amnesty is working with groups that are similar to the KKK!
We also know that the corporate sponsored pro-illegal alien wing of the Latino Lobby is in the hallways and in the meeting rooms with your elected officials!
WARNING: Pro-illegal alien Latino Groups Play Key Role on Hill

THE LOVE OF MONEY IS THE ROOT OF AMERICAN TYRANNY
By Dr. Patrick Jonston
Consider the billions of dollars of “pork” spending on bridges to sparsely populated islands, cowgirl museums, farm subsidies, corporate airline bailouts, honey bee research, Medicare drug entitlement programs, et cetera ad nauseum. The wasted billions have been proposed not by the socialist and Marxist element of the Democratic Party, but by a Republican-dominated Congress and signed by a Republican President, with record deficits of over 400 billion dollars to boot! Non-military spending has increased dramatically under the present Republican administration, at twice the rate as under Clinton.
Making Our Schools Safe
By Roger D. McGrath
Logic and history convinced the Founding Fathers that an armed citizenry was essential for liberty. Not by accident, they recognized that right in the 2nd Amendment. Moreover, they recognized that the right was God-given and not dependent on a government or a constitution. That’s why the amendment states that the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. The right was preexisting, an inherent right, not a derivative right granted by a body of lawgivers. As a country lawyer might say, those Founding Fathers were a pretty darn smart bunch. If only we’d keep that in mind.

Yet Another Fox News Smear Job On Ron Paul
First of all, Gibson lies outright by claiming Ron Paul said the U.S. had a hand in the 9/11 attacks, something the Texas Congressman has never stated.
Both the vaunted 9/11 Commission Report and the CIA admit that U.S. foreign policy has endangered the U.S.
Michael Scheuer, the former Central Intelligence Agency specialist on bin Laden and al-Qaeda, told CNN that "We're being attacked for what we do in the Islamic world, not for who we are or what we believe in or how we live. And there's a huge burden of guilt to be laid at Mr. Bush, Mr. Clinton, both parties for simply lying to the American people."
FOX NEWS' PRO GIULIANI CONFLICT OF INTEREST
By Cliff Kincaid
Rudy Giuliani’s much-publicized but misleading put-down of Ron Paul during Tuesday night’s Republican presidential debate should have been tempered by a report that Saudi Arabia, the country that spawned most of the 9/11 hijackers, has been one of Giuliani’s lucrative foreign clients. However, Fox News questioners Chris Wallace and Wendell Goler did not bring it up.
Perhaps this can be explained by the fact that the same Associated Press story that named Saudi Arabia as a Giuliani client listed News Corporation, the parent company of Fox News, as another Giuliani client. This AP story, which was not disputed by Giuliani or News Corporation, was carried on the Fox News website.
Ron Paul Said It
by Llewellyn H. Rockwell, Jr.
Ron is such a wonderful person that I'm sorry that he had to be the one to tell the truth. One could sense in the debate that he was making an enormous sacrifice here. After Giuliani spoke, the red-state fascists in the audience all started whooping up the bloodlust that the politicians have been encouraging for the last six years – a mindless display of Nazi-like nationalism that would cause the founding fathers to shudder with fear of what we've become. These people are frantic about terrorism and extremism abroad, but they need to take a good hard look in the mirror.
Ron Paul Violated the Rules
by Thomas E. Woods, Jr.
Ron Paul violated one of the most consistently observed rules of American political life in the GOP debate in South Carolina the other night: government officials are never, ever to level with the American population. The people are to be endlessly flattered, spoken to in bumper-sticker slogans, and in general treated like seven-year-olds.
Giuliani’s Attack on Ron Paul Falls Flat
by Jacob G. Hornberger
What Ron Paul’s participation in the 2008 presidential race is accomplishing is this: It is making people such as Rudy Giuliani think about things they’ve never thought about before and causing them to view the U.S. government and its long-time paradigm of empire and interventionism in an entirely different way. It’s also why he is engendering considerable discomfort among people who have long believed that the federal government is a deity whose foreign policies are beyond reproach. Don’t be surprised to hear more calls for suppressing Paul’s participation in future debates, even while the critics continue to wax eloquent about how U.S. soldiers are killing and dying in Iraq for the sake of “democracy.”

In other words, tax cuts without spending cuts are an illusion. The burden of government has not really been lightened. As the late Milton Friedman constantly pointed out, that burden is better measured by the level of spending, not the level of taxes.

"The Gun Owners of America [has] already launched a public campaign to block the legislation that the NRA supports, warning that the proposal could 'block millions of additional, honest gun owners from buying firearms.'" -- Newsweek, April 24, 2007
1. It is imperative that you contact your Representative immediately and urge him to oppose the McCarthy/Dingell bill. A "compromise" [read: gun control] deal is in the works and all legislators - especially those who are pro-gun - need to hear from gun owners right away.
GOA members have received a mailing from us within the past week, asking them to send postcards to their U.S. Senators. It is IMPERATIVE that you mail those postcards in. We want to increase the heat on these legislators by deluging them with thousands of
postcards. Now, once you've sent in those postcards, we would ask you to e-mail the specially-tailored message that is included below along with contact information.
2. Please circulate this alert to all your pro-gun friends and family, and encourage them to take action as well.

Anti-gun Rep. John Dingell (D-MI) continues his assault on American gun owners.
Dingell has been tapped by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to broker a compromise with Carolyn McCarthy (D-NY) on H.R. 297, a gun control bill being pushed in the wake of the Virginia Tech shooting.
The bill provides about $1 billion to the states to "provide the National Instant Criminal Background Check System [NICS] with all records concerning persons who are prohibited from possessing or receiving a firearm... regardless of the elapsed time since the disqualifying event."
As GOA has pointed out in previous alerts, this could lead to millions more Americans being included in the FBI's database of prohibited persons.
Dingell, being a former NRA board member, is in a unique position in the Congress on Second Amendment issues. Despite the fact that he betrayed gun owners by supporting the Clinton semi-auto ban, he is still viewed on the Hill as one of the few pro-gun Democrats.
So his support gives the bill the appearance of having the support of gun owners, when actually it is the most massive expansion of gun control in over a decade.
McCarthy, of course, is the most notorious anti-gunner in the Congress. Her sitting down with Dingell to decide the fate of our gun rights is like two foxes deciding how to best guard the henhouse.
To make matters worse, Dingell is in negotiations with the NRA to come up with a 'compromise' as quickly as possible.
The NRA itself told Newsweek in an exclusive interview on April 24 that the group "backs [the] proposed new legislation" in the House.
Newsweek reported, "The NRA's position puts the group at odds with the Gun Owners of America, which has already launched a public campaign to block the legislation that the NRA supports, warning that the proposal could 'block millions of additional, honest gun owners from buying firearms.'"
Politicians always seek to pass laws in the aftermath of a tragedy, as if one more law will stop evil people from doing evil deeds. Instead of passing more and more laws that ultimately will snuff out our liberty, we should consider repealing gun control laws that prevent citizens from defending themselves when a madman strikes.
CONTACT INFORMATION: You can visit the Gun Owners Legislative Action Center at http://www.gunowners.org/activism.htm to send your Representative the pre-written e-mail message below. And, you can call your Representative at 202-225-3121 or toll-free at 1-877-762-8762.
----- Pre-written letter -----
Gun Owners of America informs me that H.R. 297, a colossal gun control bill, is on the fast track. I strongly urge you to oppose this bill.
The Virginia Tech tragedy, which Rep. Carolyn McCarthy is using to try to push this bill, highlights the failure, not success, of gun control.
Instead of passing yet more laws that restrict my Second Amendment rights, Congress should consider repealing the failed gun control laws already on the books -- laws that increasingly result in law-abiding adults being disarmed just when they need their guns the most.
Please oppose the McCarthy bill, H.R. 297, and let me know what you intend to do.
Pundits & Candidates Seek to Exile Statesman from Republican Party-- In Spite of Leading Poll Numbers-- Over His Anti-Torture, Anti-War and Anti-Tax Standpoint
Aaron Dykes & Alex Jones
Ron Paul's performance in his second debate victory-- as moderators repeatedly suggest he doesn't belong in the Republican party. Ron Paul garnered approximately 20 minutes of air-time on Fox alone last night-- including about 10 minutes of debate questions and another 10 minutes composed of attacks and dismissals by pundits, other candidates and an interview with Hannity & Colmes.
If you watched the debate, live or video, then you will have noticed that Dr. Paul was purposefully baited in order to get the reaction the moderators, etc. wanted. Instead of acknowledging that Ron Paul is right, the spin doctors are doing all they can to smear his name all across MediaWorld.

Council on Foreign Relations Sees End of National Currency
By Benn Steil
From Foreign Affairs, May/June 2007
Global financial instability has sparked a surge in "monetary nationalism" -- the idea that countries must make and control their own currencies. But globalization and monetary nationalism are a dangerous combination, a cause of financial crises and geopolitical tension. The world needs to abandon unwanted currencies, replacing them with dollars, euros, and multinational currencies as yet unborn.

UNDERSTANDING THE THREAT TO DIETARY SUPPLEMENTS
By Byron J. Richards, CCN
Your right to have free access to safe and highly effective dietary supplements is under an intense multi-pronged FDA attack. On May 14, 2007 the Supreme Court sided with the FDA by deciding not to hear the case of Nutraceutical v FDA, letting stand a federal appeals court ruling that permits the FDA to use drug-related risk/benefit analysis to determine if a nutrient is safe.
by Ron Paul
Congress voted this past week to authorize nearly $40 billion for the Homeland Security Department, but the result will likely continue to be more bureaucracy and less security for Americans.

ALIPAC Activists: We need your full and immediate support for these operations if you want to stop Amnesty in DC. More important info to follow tonight!
ALIPAC Launches Operation Bring It Home!
ALIPAC Launches Operation City Walls!
ALIPAC Launches Operations City Walls & Bring it Home to spread local immigration enforcement and stop Amnesty for illegals in Washington!
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
May 14, 2007
CONTACT: William Gheen, www.alipac.us, WilliamG@alipac.us, (866) 329-3999
Riding on the wave created in Farmers Branch on May 12, Americans for Legal Immigration PAC (ALIPAC) has launched operations City Walls and Bring it Home, to spread the movement in local governments across America, while putting a stop to the Guest Worker Amnesty under consideration in Washington.
"Our goal is to bring these lawmakers in DC in line with their constituents back home, while spreading the political revolt in our cities and towns against illegal immigration," says William Gheen of ALIPAC. "The DC lawmakers dare not attempt to override the hundreds of cities and the 35 states that have passed laws to crack down on illegal immigration. To do so will be political suicide for any lawmaker associated with Guest Worker Amnesty."
Adhering to the political principle that All Politics are Local, these operations are designed to reach lawmakers in DC that are insulated by staff and corporate lobbyists. The recent city election victories in Farmers Branch, Texas and Carpentersville, Illinois have demonstrated public attitudes favoring enforcement vs Guest Worker Amnesty. These wins are expected to have a domino effect, driven by citizen activists, on many city governments and campaigns for local office across America.
"These wins have shown that those standing for immigration enforcement can win by landslides, despite being massively outspent by the Open Borders Lobby," says Gheen. "In Farmers Branch, our side was outspent five to one, yet won by a factor of 2:1 which defies the old rule that those that spend the most win 94% of the time! This is because over 80% of the voters want immigration enforcement not appeasement of illegal aliens and the corporations that employ them!"
Operations City Walls and Bring It Home go into high gear today and will have a big impact on what happens in both DC and grass roots politics.
"Lawmakers in DC will soon see local governments doing their job for them across America," says Gheen. "Even the most insulated lawmakers will notice this political revolt on the local level and realize a vote for Guest Worker is the end of their political careers."
More information on both campaigns are located at the ALIPAC Website at this link...
Operations Bring It Home & City Walls Information.
ALIPAC was founded on 9/11 2004 in honor of the victims of 9/11. Supporters are from all 50 states and are comprised of legal immigrants and Americans of all races and political parties that want illegal immigration reversed! For more information, please visit www.alipac.us

ALIPAC Video: On the ground in historic Farmers Branch, TX
According to the Washington Times, the guidebooks are being distributed by a group known as CASA of Maryland Incorporated, a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization formally known as Central American Solidarity and Assistance of Maryland. The book, which contains cartoon-like drawings, is the product of CASA working with other organizations. The book lists what rights people who are not citizens of the U.S. have when they are detained by immigration agents, served with a warrant, or charged with a crime. The book also urges them to remain silent if they are arrested, and even refuse to provide authorities with any information about their immigration status.
FORT DIX SIX, 9/11 AND MUSLIMS
By Frosty Wooldridge
Last week, six Middle-Eastern men— two legal aliens, three illegal aliens and one naturalized U.S. citizen from Jordan prepared to kill hundreds of U.S. soldiers at Fort Dix , New Jersey. What did they all have in common? Muslim terrorists; they all follow the violent concepts of Islam. Its prime directive pretends "peace" as long as you submit to its precepts. If you don't, Islam followers swear to kill all non-believers. That belief reigns supreme in their Koran.
THE REAL IMMIGRATION THREAT

Were it not for the Immigration Reform Act of 1965, we wouldn't have to worry about Moslem terrorism on our soil. We wouldn't be beset by ultra-violent, terrorist-enabling gangs such as MS-13, either. You see, these folks would presently be where their hearts are - in their homelands.

1. Shallowness of the things of God.
Most Christians today know very little of the stories and doctrines of the Bible.
This shallowness comes from not knowing Who God really is. We do not realize Who we have access to.
The Bible will become more important to us, and we will want to read and study it when we move past our shallow desires.
2. Being inconsistent in our Christian life.
There are no shortcuts in serving God. We must work at it.
3. When we "shut off the bowels of mercy and compassion" towards others.
We should seek to do things for others. To help those in need.
4. An unsurrendered life.
God wants us. He wants to fellowship with us and to love us. But, we must give ourselves to Him.
Friends of ALIPAC!
We have great news to share! I just got off the phone with our ALIPAC Volunteers that are with the candidates in Farmers Branch Texas! You should hear the applause and screams of joy in the background during the call. The crowd is roaring!
While all of the votes have not been counted, close to 70% of the votes have been totaled and the candidates are declaring victory now.
Here are the results.
The ordinance cracking down on illegal immigration by blocking illegal aliens from renting houses and apartments has passed 2 to 1 receiving approximately 68% of the vote!
The two candidates that support this ordinance have soundly defeated two candidates that opposed this ordinance by factors of 2 to 1!
Mr Koch has won his campaign with almost 64% of the vote and Mr. Scott has won his campaign with about 66% of the vote!
Again, we must thank all of you that contributed or volunteered to help with this effort!
With the big win for us in Carpentersville, IL last month and tonight's win in Farmers Branch, our movement is in position to sweep across America with these kinds of ordinances and inject them into city government and city campaigns nationwide quickly!
This will be a great flanking maneuver for our EFFORTS TO STOP AMNESTY IN DC!
You will receive more information on how this can benefit our efforts against Amnesty and what you can do to help on Monday morning.
Please prepare for Monday's high priority activation by collecting phone numbers and e-mails for every city or town council member you can locate in your state. Also, please collect the same contact info for any city council candidates in your state.
The Farmers Branch and Carpentersville dominoes have fallen establishing clear evidence of what ALIPAC has been telling the nation all along. A majority of Americans are fed up and any politician on the wrong side of this issue is putting their political careers on the trash heap of history!
Farmers Branch! We Salute You! On Monday, we will carry your message to the nation!
Americans for Legal Immigration PAC
Voters approve ordinance that bans renting to illegal immigrants!
Given [Tuesday's] events, the American public has a right to demand, not ask, that Congress and the Bush administration drop all talk of amnesty and guest worker programs and get to work on the single most important priority: controlling our borders and fixing an immigration system that allows terrorists and just about anyone else to enter and hide out in this country," said FAIR President Dan Stein.
Bush to give refugee status to foreign rebels
Via ASSOCIATED PRESS:
Today's foreign terrorists could become tomorrow's U.S. refugees under a Bush administration proposal to revise immigration rules. The intent is to grant refugee status to rebels who have fought repressive governments or advanced U.S. foreign-policy objectives, particularly in Southeast Asia, Africa and Latin America.
When Immigrants Come to Conquer…
Christopher Hitchens recently visited his English birthplace after a long absence and reported on the dismal scene. -- He uses the title of Melanie Phillips book, Londonistan, as a descriptor of the newly unBritish city and a word that appears commonly enough to indicate the term has struck a chord. It must be the mosques and burqas on the street. The Sons of Allah have made no secret of their goal of a totalitarian Islam-run planet and Britain is a speedbump on the way to the Caliphate.

SOMEBODY WAKE ME UP WHEN THIS INSANITY IS OVER!
By David Brownlow
This battle is no longer about defending our freedoms, it is about winning it back. Anyone with even half a brain can see that a moral and economic tsunami is barreling toward our shores, yet God's people sit in their government incorporated, 501C bribed, Caesar worshipping churches - where conniving shepherds teach that Romans 13 commands them to bow down before, and swear allegiance to, the gang of violent criminals who have seized control of our government. Clearly, trying to serve two masters has been a disaster for those who claim to be followers of Christ.
HOLY BONES OR HOLLYWOOD HOAX?

Discovering that Jesus of Nazareth wasn't the man in the tomb as alleged by Cameron and Jacobovici's experts is newsworthy. Yet the secular media ignored it. Far be it from lie-berals to admit they got it wrong. So in spite of all the hype (and secularist's hopes) that our Lord's remains were in the tomb, "The greatest archeological find in history" turns out to be a flimsy fabrication!

ZORRO OR ZERO?
Dr. Edwin Vieira, Jr., Ph.D., J.D.
Samuel Johnson once quipped that nothing focuses a man’s mind as much as the imminence of his own hanging. Perhaps that is not as true in the case of a whole country, in which some people always seem able foolishly to assume that the bell tolls only for others. This country is in dire straits, with its very life as “a free State” on the line.
