White House insiders confidently predict that President Obama will soon issue an executive order that will grant deferred action to up to 5 million illegal aliens. Here are four major, indisputable reasons why Obama’s callous, politically motivated move would irreparably harm Americans.
First, 5 million previously unemployable aliens would instantly receive work authorization. With their work permits in hand, the newly legalized immigrants would compete in a labor market that, according to the Economic Policy Institute, has no available jobs for more than 60 percent of applicants.
The depressed economy has idled more than 1 million recent high school or college graduates which results in an 18.1 percent true unemployment rate for prospective workers under age 25. Involuntary part-time workers, people who would like a full-time job but can’t find one, has increased steadily and represents nearly 20 percent of all employment. Part-time jobs traditionally pay an hourly wage that hovers around the minimum, offer few benefits, and no health care.
Obama’s amnesty would disproportionately harm African-Americans, Hispanics, returning veterans, legal immigrants and the disabled. Finally, about 3.5 million Americans are long term unemployed, defined as unemployed for six months or longer but still actively seeking a job. For Americans lucky enough to be working, the 5 million immigrants represent a potential threat to their job security. Many immigrants would willingly take a lower salary than the existing American worker earns.
Second, under no conceivable circumstances can 5 million deferred action applications be processed effectively, securely or on a timely basis. Through June, 2014 more about 375,000 cases including 42,000 Central American children, are backlogged in immigration courts with an average waiting time of 587 days. Many deferred action petitions under Obama’s 2012 executive order for childhood arrivals are still bogged down at U.S. Customs and Immigration Services. With lax oversight, fraud becomes more likely. In 1986, when the Immigration Reform and Control Act [IRCA] passed, more than 2.5 million received amnesty even though immigration officials active at the time confirmed that fraud was rampant.
Third, excluding 5 million deportable aliens from removal represents amnesty, no matter what misleading label supporters may give it. Amnesty begets more amnesty. After IRCA passed the U.S. had effectively zero illegal immigrants. Today, 27 years later, the illegal immigrant population is estimated at 12 million, but could be substantially higher.
Fourth, because of chain migration an executive action amnesty would eventually add millions more foreign nationals to the already overcrowded U.S. Once amnestied immigrants attain lawful status or citizenship, they can send for spouses and minor children as well as non-nuclear family members like siblings, parents and adult children. Chain migration is the primary contributor to legal immigration, quadrupling from an average 250,000 annually in the 1950s to nearly 1 million today. The U.S. cannot fiscally or environmentally accommodate everyone.
The unassailable facts in today’s economy argue for tighter labor markets which would create more employment opportunities and help increase Americans’ stagnant pay scale. Ecologically, population must be stabilized, not expanded.
Yet, a detached from reality Obama appears determined to forge ahead. If he proceeds unilaterally on immigration, he’ll add an exclamation point to his dictatorial “I’ve got a pen, I’ve got a phone” threat.

You’re next, Saudi king warns the West. Jihadist attacks “will reach Europe in a month and America in another month” unless world leaders halt ISIL’s reign of terror in the Middle East, said Saudi Arabia’s King Abdullah. His words echo John Kerry’s call for a global military effort to confront ISIL.
Major Church Leader Calls For Armed Response Against ISIS
The Patriarch of the Lebanese Maronite Church, which is under the Roman See, Beshara Rai, has called for an organized armed response against ISIS. In a talk with the Catholic Legislators Network, Rai called for
a military force under the hospices of the United Nations and the Security Council to put an end to the invasion by the terrorist organizations.
He continued on to contribute the violence to Western powers, say:
Everyone knows that those countries are victims of international struggle motivated by political, economic and strategic interests [that are] related to the gas and the petrol in those countries.
He then stressed that the world “should put an end to the terrorist organizations and especially ISIS… Christians are ending up paying the heaviest price and their very presence in the region, dating back to the time of Christ, is now in real jeopardy.
We are going to see more and more of these calls for armed responses. They will eventually accumulate and result in a major crusade, the New Crusade.
The Cuyahoga River bursts into flames due from its industrial waste; 1952; Cleveland, Ohio
The Cuyahoga River was one of the most polluted rivers in the United States. The reach from Akron to Cleveland was devoid of fish. At least 13 fires have been reported on the Cuyahoga River, the first occurring in 1868. The 1969 Cuyahoga River fire helped spur an avalanche of water pollution control activities, resulting in the Clean Water Act, Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement, and the creation of the federal Environmental Protection Agency.

Despite Threats – QuikTrip Has No Plans To Rebuild in #Ferguson
On August 10, 2014, the Ferguson, Missouri, the local QuikTrip was looted and torched during riots over the shooting death of 18 year-old Michael Brown.

This was another sign that the QuikTrip in Ferguson will not rebuild.
Destroyed QuikTrip in Ferguson removed gas from its underground tanks. The company is getting ready to tear down and rebuild at another location.
UPDATE: A QuikTrip official told TGP the company has no plans on rebuilding in Ferguson and that the looted store was barely breaking even.
