President Obama’s largest contributor in his first presidential campaign was Goldman Sachs. Yes. He still yearns to be a member of their social class, so he serves the Goldman class rather than the American middle class.

Immigration is destroying the American middle class.

Labor, like any economic resource, obeys the law of supply and demand. If you dump labor into a market, it drives down the wage-rate.

The plain fact is that immigration into any modern country has two serious, lethal effects on the native-born citizens:

1. Immigration sharply drives down wage rates.

2. Immigration sharply drives up housing costs (rent rates).

Thus employers and landlords benefit from immigration.
Thus common workers are greatly harmed by immigration.

Immigration over the past 12 years caused more destruction of the American middle class than any other factor.

All other nations in the world, COMBINED, do not allow the levels of immigration that America is experiencing. It is the largest movement of human beings in the history of the world.

America’s leaders are criminals for allowing it to happen. And that includes the current senators and President. They are both owned by the wealthy class and multinational corporations.

The real question is, Why does American even have a military when we allow foreign nations to invade us by immigration?

America is being invaded by not just Mexico, but all the highly populated nations on Earth. They are invading not just across the desert border with Mexico, but also right into the airports of all major American cities.

Largest Countries ranked by population:

1. China 1.3 billion people
2. India 1.2 billion
3. United States 315 million (US rapid overcrowding is due to immigration)
4. Indonesia 237 million
5. Brazil 193 million
6. Pakistan 182 million
7. Nigeria 166 million
8. Bangladesh 152 million
9. Russia 143 million
10.Japan 127 million
11.Mexico 112 million
12.Phillipines 92 million

The Plagues-- 1540-1620

The Europeans brought disease to Bergonia, just as they brought disease to Mexico and Peru. Smallpox, bubonic plague and influenza together, came in successive waves, killing over 80% of the atrei population by 1620.

The many atrei who refused to accommodate the Europeans said that the Europeans were dirty and ridden with disease, and that no good would come from letting them come around. They often said that one could get sick from rubbing shoulders with the Europeans.

It turned out they were right.

The prophecy of the Seventh Generation is common to many American Indian nations. Young native people, especially young Mohawk people, should pay attention to and consider.

According to the prophecy, after seven generations of living in close contact with the Europeans, the Onkwehonwe would see the day when the elm trees would die. The prophecy said that animals would be born strange and deformed, their limbs twisted out of shape. Huge stone monsters would tear open the face of the earth. The rivers would burn aflame. The air would burn the eyes of man. According to the prophecy of the Seventh Generation the Onkwehonwe would see the day when birds would fall from the sky, the fish would die in the water, and man would grow ashamed of the way that he had treated his mother and provider, the Earth.

Finally, according to this prophecy, after seven generations of living in close contact with the Europeans, the Onkwehonwe would rise up and demand that their rights and stewardship over the Earth be respected and restored.

According to the wisdom of this prophecy, men and women would one day turn to the Onkwehonwe, and particularly to the eastern door of the Confederacy, for both guidance and direction. It is up to the present generation of youth of the Kanien'kehake to provide leadership and example to all who have failed. The children of the Kanien'kehake are the seventh generation.

Clown barry is starting to get a glimpse that the rest of his incompetent treasonous presidency will be facing the power of the House to control funding bills. Clown barry's treasonous ambitious leftist agenda? Will it be defunded by the House?

It was Ted Kennedy that opened up the floodgates long ago claiming that "immigrants" would not overwhelm our own citizenry, dilute our culture, alter job opportunities for Americans and deplete our social and natural resouces. It just snowballed from there including illegal immigration. No dropping of quotas for legal immigration to match our needs and our population growth either just let em all in. This is why we are in the state we are in today.

Now Obama wants to legalize millions of illegal aliens to put the nail in the coffin. WTH is wrong with our politicians?
