California bill could create sanctuary state for non-felon illegal immigrants

California lawmakers are considering a new bill that could create a sanctuary state for illegal immigrants seeking protection from Arizona’s strict immigration law.

The Transparency and Responsibility Using State Tools, or TRUST Act, which is currently making its way through the California legislature, would prohibit local law enforcement from turning over illegal immigrants for deportation except for those with serious felony convictions.

8 things the U.S. election system could learn from Mexico’s

Editor’s note: Robert A. Pastor is professor and co-director of the Center for Democracy and Election Management at American University and author of “The North American Idea: A Vision of a Continental Future.” The views expressed in this article are solely those of Robert A. Pastor.

By Robert A. Pastor, Special to CNN

The main question asked about the Mexican presidential elections on July 1 is whether victory by the Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI) means that Mexico will return to its authoritarian past.

The answer is simple: The PRI has changed because Mexico has changed. For more than six decades, the PRI manipulated elections and ruled Mexico in a quasi-authoritarian system. However, between 1988 until 2000, two Mexican presidents – Carlos Salinas de Gortari and Ernesto Zedillo – gradually responded to internal and external pressures and opened the economy and the political system.

I have observed elections in Mexico since 1986 and witnessed the transformation of the election system from the worst to the best in the Americas. The projected victory by PRI candidate Enrique Peña Nieto will not turn Mexico backwards. Mexicans have chosen democracy, and after two terms under PAN presidents, they are voting for change.

THE SLEEPING GIANT IS AWAKE AGAIN….TIME TO GET INVOLVED

pelosi walking past protestorsWell it happened, ObamaCare, with its hooks, tentacles, and unseen attacks on liberty are almost 100% a DONE DEAL. Romney and his promise of repeal is our only hope.

After speaking to some other group organizers I can tell you one thing for sure…IT’S NOT OVER

In 2010 the TYRANTS took a beating at the ballot box

IT’S 2010 ALL OVER AGAIN

 

(A short story)

A few years ago I didn’t care much about politics or getting involved, then came Sunday, March 21, 2010

Nancy Pelosi, harry Reid, and Barak Obama JAMMED what we all know is a socialist healthcare system down our throats by lying, bribery, and manipulation. It was so BLATENT that I thought to myself; if I sit back and DO NOTHING, I am part of the problem. That day Pelosi walked past protesters with her giant hammer, as if to say: IN YOUR FACE PEASANTS. That day changed me!!! (See pic and video below)

Two years later we find out it’s a TAX, and YOU CAN’T KEEP YOUR DOCTOR, and most employers will dump their employees on this travesty called ObamaCare.

There is TWO San Diegan’s that are responsible for signing obamacare into law

Bob Filner and Susan Davis (both running for office)

San Diego Tea Party is in the process of joining with other groups to make sure Filner, Davis and some others know the SLEEPING GIANT is still awake!!!

Please be ready to get involved soon, we are in the process of creating a Coalition that will join Tea Party, conservative groups, libertarian, independent and any other that will help oust politicians that have no common sense.

MAYORAL POLL: DEMAIO STILL LEADS, FLETCHER SURGING

U-T San Diego survey shows Fletcher wins head-to-head matchups Filner also close, leaving Dumanis in 4th; undecided count high at 35 percent

City Councilman Carl DeMaio holds a slim lead among registered voters in the San Diego mayor’s race, but support for Assemblyman Nathan Fletcher has surged, creating a three-way heat a month before the June 5 primary, according to a new U-T San Diego Poll.

DeMaio, a Republican, leads the way with 22 percent while Democratic Rep. Bob Filner and Fletcher, an independent, are neck-and-neck for second place with 18 percent and 17 percent, respectively. Republican District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis is fourth at 8 percent.

The race appears far from settled: 35 percent of city voters remain undecided.

Obama quote on the Debt limit March 2006

Pass this to everyone you know

“The fact that we are here today to debate raising America ‘s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the US Government cannot pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies. Increasing America ‘s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that, “the buck stops here.’ Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.”

~ Senator Barack H. Obama, March 2006
