Bob Barr: Legal Workforce Act is a stealth national Id

Sep 14, 2011 | Posted by: Agent of Chaos | Full story: dailycaller.com

The House Judiciary Committee is scheduled to mark up legislation tomorrow that, while advertised as vital to fighting illegal immigration, in reality will move America closer to a form of national ID and will put the feds in even greater control of businesses across the country. Conservatives and liberals alike who believe in maintaining at least some degree of privacy in the face of government-mandated databases and efforts to force employers to obtain Uncle Samís permission before hiring someone should strongly oppose this legislation.

Napolitano Doesn't Intend to Secure a Single Additional Mile of U.S.
Border-This Year or Next

Tuesday, February 15, 2011

( CNSNews.com )- Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano released a
budget document on Monday that indicates that the Department of Homeland
Security does not intend to put a single additional mile of the U.S. border
under "effective control" in either fiscal year 2011 or 2012.

According to Napolitano's budget plan, the Border Patrol had 1,007 miles of
the U.S. border under "effective control" at the end of fiscal year 2010,
and DHS aims to stick with exactly that number through this year and next.

The 3311-page document released by Napolitano--"Congressiona l Budget
Justification: FY 2012"--also says DHS does not intend to add a single
additional Border Patrolmen in fiscal year 2012, after adding 859 this year.
Nor, the document says, does DHS intend to deploy a single additional Border
Patrol agent to either the U.S.-Mexico or U.S.-Canada border in fiscal year
2012, capping Border Patrol deployments at the two borders at this year's
level.

DHS declares it has established "effective control" of a mile of the U.S.
border "when the appropriate mix of personnel, equipment, technology and
tactical infrastructure has been deployed to reasonably ensure that when an
attempted illegal entry is detected, the Border Patrol has the ability to
identify, classify and respond to bring the attempted illegal entry to a
satisfactory law enforcement resolution."

Customs and Border Protection (CBP), a subdivision of DHS, is responsible
for securing 8,607 miles of U.S. border, including the 1,994-mile-long
U.S.-Mexico border, the approximately 4,000-mile-long U.S.-Canada border,
and sections of coastline in the Gulf of Mexico, Puerto Rico, and the U.S.
Virgin Islands.

According to DHS budget justification released Monday, CBP currently has
only 1,007 of the 8,607 miles of border it is responsible for under
"effective control."

Senators say DHS allows backdoor amnesty

A series of new internal rules has effectively created a possible backdoor
amnesty for millions of illegal immigrants, Senate Republicans charged on
Tuesday in a letter demanding that Homeland Security Secretary Janet
Napolitano explain the new policies.

Ms. Napolitano has said her department is trying to focus resources on
illegal immigrants with long criminal records, but the letter, signed by all
seven Republicans on the committee that oversees immigration, said it
appears the administration instead is trying to carve out categories of
illegal immigrants that won't be deported at all.

Indeed, the latest statistics show deportations are, in fact, down slightly
compared with the similar period last year. The administration has
dramatically stepped up removals of convicted criminal immigrants, deporting
51,981 more than last year, an increase of 42 percent. But deportation of
other immigrants is down even more, dropping by 53,934 through August.

Barack Obama Touts Illegal Immigration at Campaign Speech . Whether You Came
to US Legally or Illegally, "We are Connected"

Unbelievable, at a campaign speech in San Francisco, California Barack Obama
sang the praises of illegal immigrants. Who knew that the President of the
United States was not supposed to be about upholding the rule of law. So
much for borders. So those individuals that came to the United States and
followed the rules are the same as those that illegally crossed the Rio
Grande and the US/Mexican border.

Watch the VIDEO at Real Clear Politics.

"No matter who you are. No matter where you can came from. No matter what
you look like. No matter whether your ancestors landed here on Ellis Island
or came here on slave ships or came across the Rio Grande, we are all
connected. We will rise and fall together. That's the vision of America I've
got, that's the idea of the heart of America," President Obama said at a
fundraiser in San Francisco.

"That's the idea of the heart of our campaign," Obama added.

Once again Obama is pandering to the LEFT while an overwhelming majority of
Americans believe that border control is the top immigration priority. Also
61% of Americans believe that a child born to illegal parents should not be
given US citizenship. But that's irrelevant to Obama which I guess this is
why the FEDS have told border patrol not to make arrests.

Obama rallies support for $500+ billion Medicare cuts bill

The health care story in 6 parts, at the Obama vacation break:

1. Obama supports the Max Baucus bill (the Senate Finance Committee bill),
the one being constructed by 3 Democrats, two of them Blue Dogs, and 3
Republicans. The one without a public option and with the weakest subsidies
for health insurance purchases by the poor and near poor.

2. Baucus says the final bill will be revenue-positive but hasn't told us
how he's gonna do that. He's released nothing, no details on taxes, fees,
and/or funding cutbacks.

3. Baucus is currently working with his group of six to make the final bill
even more harsh and right-wing. We know that from the following Washington
Post article:

Key Senators Discuss Trimming Health Bill
In a conference call, the three Democratic and three Republican members of
the Senate Finance Committee agreed to redouble their efforts to craft a
less costly alternative to the trillion-dollar initiatives so far put
forward in Congress. They discussed the possibility of also reining in the
scope of their package, the sources said....

"Our discussion included an increased emphasis on affordability and
reducing costs, and our efforts moving forward will reflect that focus,"
[Baucus] said.

No details, of course, were released.

4. Although no details have been released on how increased health care
expenditures in the Baucus bill will be matched by reductions in health care
spending (cost saving other than through rationing being a myth), no-details
Obama rallies the troops today for 'his health care reforms,' "hoping to
clear up what he called 'a lot of confusion.'"

5. Despite no official details, WaPost word is that $500+ billion will be
cut from Medicare. Obama himself, actually, said last week that the plan is
to cut Medicare by $500-600 billion. There has been no pwoggie protest much
less notice of this.

6. Before vacationing today at wealthy people's paradise or wtf, Obama meets
with former Senator Tom Daschle, described by WaPost 'news' as "a consummate
legislative strategist who had been the president's first choice to lead the
administration's drive for health reform." WaPost forgets to mention that
Daschle is employed by Alston & Bird, a D.C. lobbying firm heavily weighted
with health industry clients, and is cofounder of the anti-public-option
Bipartisan Policy Center, which is also awash in health industry influence
and money.

Sentenced to death on the NHS

Patients with terminal illnesses are being made to die prematurely under an
NHS scheme to help end their lives, leading doctors have warned.

In a letter to The Daily Telegraph, a group of experts who care for the
terminally ill claim that some patients are being wrongly judged as close to
death.

Under NHS guidance introduced across England to help doctors and medical
staff deal with dying patients, they can then have fluid and drugs withdrawn
and many are put on continuous sedation until they pass away.

But this approach can also mask the signs that their condition is improving,
the experts warn.

As a result the scheme is causing a "national crisis" in patient care, the
letter states. It has been signed palliative care experts including
Professor Peter Millard, Emeritus Professor of Geriatrics, University of
London, Dr Peter Hargreaves, a consultant in Palliative Medicine at St Luke's
cancer centre in Guildford, and four others.

"Forecasting death is an inexact science,"they say. Patients are being
diagnosed as being close to death "without regard to the fact that the
diagnosis could be wrong.

"As a result a national wave of discontent is building up, as family and
friends witness the denial of fluids and food to patients."

The warning comes just a week after a report by the Patients Association
estimated that up to one million patients had received poor or cruel care on
the NHS.

The scheme, called the Liverpool Care Pathway (LCP), was designed to reduce
patient suffering in their final hours.

Developed by Marie Curie, the cancer charity, in a Liverpool hospice it was
initially developed for cancer patients but now includes other life
threatening conditions.

It was recommended as a model by the National Institute for Health and
Clinical Excellence (Nice), the Government's health scrutiny body, in 2004.

It has been gradually adopted nationwide and more than 300 hospitals, 130
hospices and 560 care homes in England currently use the system.

Under the guidelines the decision to diagnose that a patient is close to
death is made by the entire medical team treating them, including a senior
doctor.

Isn't a passport good enough? The average citizen does not need some high tech ID. But the Gov thinks different.
Yep. No doubt though folks will call you "paranoid" until it's too late.

Well, I guess you can see the polarity of the arguement here.

On the other side of what?

Dragon has made it clear that he is both pro-death panel and anti-death panel.

Where is there another side? You seem to have both sides covered.
