  State Senate Endorses the Reconquista of Azatlan
cbs5.com - State Senate Supports Immigrant Walkout On Monday: "By a 24-13 vote that split along party lines, the California Senate approved a resolution that calls the one-day protest the Great American Boycott 2006 and describes it as an attempt to educate Americans 'about the tremendous contribution immigrants make on a daily basis to our society and economy.'"

  Bush continues to abet the reconquista of Azatlan. Asshole
May 1 immigrant boycott aims to 'close' cities | Reuters.com: "LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Pro-immigration activists say a national boycott and marches planned for May 1 will flood U.S. streets with millions of Latinos to demand amnesty for illegal immigrants and shake the ground under Congress as it debates reform.

Such a massive turnout could make for the largest protests since the civil rights era of the 1960s, though not all Latinos -- nor their leaders -- were comfortable with such militancy, fearing a backlash in Middle America.

'There will be 2 to 3 million people hitting the streets in Los Angeles alone. We're going to close down Los Angeles, Chicago, New York, Tucson, Phoenix, Fresno,' said Jorge Rodriguez, a union official who helped organize earlier rallies credited with rattling Congress as it debates the issue.

Immigration has split Congress, the Republican Party and public opinion. Conservatives want the estimated 12 million illegal immigrants classified as felons and a fence built along the Mexican border."

RIA Novosti - Russia - Russia will deliver air defense systems to Iran - top general: "MOSCOW, April 19 (RIA Novosti) - The chief of the General Staff said Wednesday that Russia would honor its commitments on supplying military equipment to Iran.

'We discussed supplies of military equipment to Iran, including the Tor M1, in the framework of bilateral cooperation, but it does not fall into the category of strategic weapons,' Army General Yury Baluyevsky said after talks in Moscow with NATO Supreme Allied Commander in Europe General James Jones.

'And I can assure you it will be delivered under the control of the relevant organizations,' he said."
 
  Democrats and Voter Fraud, two things that just go together
Tennessee Senate Votes to Oust Member - Yahoo! News: "NASHVILLE, Tenn. - The Republican-controlled Senate voted on Wednesday to unseat one of its Democratic members, agreeing that her 13-vote win was tainted by questionable ballots from felons and dead voters.

An investigative committee, which has been at work since the September special election, recommended Memphis Sen. Ophelia Ford be ousted after finding the election was suspect because of 12 improper ballots.

Two ballots were cast in the names of dead people and others came from felons and people outside the district, the committee said.

Ford has contended attempts to oust her are motivated by the Republicans' slim 18-14 majority in the Senate."

* Her mortuary refused to pay the cemetery
* Her son was treated as an over-sized piece of luggage

But... Now we know none of this is true!"
 
  The duplicitious Donk's
Wasn't it all during the run-up to the '04 elections that the Donk's were whining about "Cowboy Diplomacy" and "failure to consult with our allies" how J. F'n Kerry would be able to sway the French and the German's etc etc.
For right or wrong GW tapped the EU to deal with the Iranian nuclear issue. Predictably it was a complete cluster-fuck.
Now that time has just about run out on the Iranian issue, the Donk's now want the US to act unilaterally and without a huggy-kissy coalition of our 'allies' (those that maintain trade relationships with Iran).

Las Vegas SUN: Reid blasts Bush during Reno visit: "RENO, Nev. (AP) - The Bush administration is relying too heavily on other countries in the international effort to stop Iran from developing nuclear weapons, according to Sen. Harry Reid.

Reid, D-Nev., said the administration should be taking the lead, but instead is relying on Germany, France and Great Britain to convince Iran to end its uranium enrichment program.

'It is hard to comprehend,' Reid said Tuesday in Reno. 'We should be involved at trying to arrive at a diplomatic solution. ... Not just these three countries.'"

'Its a cultural thing – the moment an Australian suspects the call is coming from India they can get uptight. "

  Georgia governor signs sweeping immigration law | Reuters.com
Georgia governor signs sweeping immigration law | Reuters.com: "ATLANTA (Reuters) - The state of Georgia approved a sweeping measure on Monday to crack down on illegal immigrants and the people who hire them as a passionate debate on immigration heats up in the United States.

The law could fuel a national controversy as the federal government and other states consider how to deal with millions of undocumented workers while immigrants, many of whom are Hispanic, are displaying their political power through mass demonstrations in cities across the United States.

The Georgia Security and Immigration Compliance Act, signed into law by Gov. Sonny Perdue, denies many state services paid for by taxpayers to people who are in the United States illegally.

It also forces contractors doing business with the state to verify the legal status of new workers, and requires police to notify immigration officials if people charged with crimes are illegal immigrants.

'It's our responsibility to ensure that our famous Georgia hospitality is not abused, that our taxpayers are not taken advantage of and that our citizens are protected,' Perdue said before signing the law.

Other provisions of the law prohibit employers from claiming a tax deduction for wages of $600 or more paid to undocumented workers, impose prison terms for human trafficking and limit the services commercial companies can provide to illegal immigrants.

Hundreds of thousands of people have demonstrated at rallies in major U.S. cities in recent weeks demanding rights for illegal immigrants in the United States."

  100 extra Jackbooted Asshats at taxpayer expense. That is a bigger deal than their assholish tactics in local bars.
abc13.com: News from KTRK, around Texas - the Lone Star State: "More than 2,200 bar patrons or workers have been arrested or issued citations since August. The purpose is to stop the sale of alcoholic beverages to people who are drunk and, as a result, cut down on the number of drunken drivers.

Public intoxication is a Class C misdemeanor punishable by a fine of up to $500.

But media reports about the program after a sting last month in the Dallas suburb of Irving prompted criticism that the arrests could prove bad for business if they drive away conventions and other tourists.

Beck said the commission had been considering the suspension after the flood of complaints related to the Irving stings.

The commission has not set a date to reinstate the program.

'We're just delaying the operations until we've had time to go through the information we received,' Beck said.

The Monday hearing will continue as planned and will also include the Senate Criminal Justice Committee, Beck said.

The commission has been doing stings in bars since 2001, but began doing more over the summer after getting additional funding from the Legislature for about 100 more employees."

nbc5i.com - News - Controversial TABC Arrests Result Of Funding Increase: "One bar owner, who asked NBC 5 not to use his name for fear of retaliation by the TABC, said those arrested were not causing a disturbance.

TABC officials said they have no plans to change the program."
 
  France Surrenders: Withdraws the CPE
France scraps youth job law - Yahoo! News: "PARIS (Reuters) - French
President Jacques Chirac on Monday scrapped a planned youth job law that provoked weeks of protests, in a climbdown opponents celebrated as an unqualified victory.

The move was a personal blow to Prime Minister Dominique de Villepin, who had championed the First Job Contract (CPE) and seen his popularity slump with the mass opposition and unrest.

In a televised statement, Villepin said he regretted that weeks of strikes and protests showed the CPE could not be applied but gave no details about his own political future, on the line over his handling of the dispute.

'The necessary conditions of confidence and calm are not there, either among young people, or companies, to allow the application of the First Job Contract,' Villepin said, adding he would open talks with unions on youth employment.

Students had planned fresh marches for Tuesday and it was unclear if they would call off their strikes and a blockade of many universities and high schools after the announcement."

Philadelphia Daily News | 04/04/2006 | DEAR CONGRESSMAN MURTHA...: "My son's life, and the lives of all the men and women fighting this battle are too precious to be endangered by politicians who give aid and comfort to our enemy in order to score rhetorical political points.

If you will not desist, I can only hope that responsible members of your party will repudiate your dangerous rhetoric and condemn your assistance to our enemies."

  Welcome to America where all displays of patriotism are strictly forbidden, for your 'safety'
cbs4denver.com - Tensions Change Dress Code At Local Middle School: "Students at Shaw Heights Middle School are no longer allowed to wear anything that's patriotic, including camouflage pants, because they have become a political symbol for a version of patriotism.

'It upsets me that we cannot support our troops, the military,' said Kirsten Golgart, an eighth grader who was told she'd be suspended if she didn't change her clothes. 'We can't support our country. If we're American, I think we should be proud to be an American.'

A letter went home to parents last week that explained for student safety, no clothes were allowed with political messages or flags of any sort.

Myla Shepherd, the principal, said that tensions over the immigration issue were apparent when more than 20 students came to school wearing camouflage jackets and pants, apparently to show what they call their patriotism and American pride."

  Soon-to-be el-Presidente for like. Hugo seizes control over the oil fields.
Telegraph | News | Chavez grabs oil field to fund anti-US campaign: "Venezuela's president Hugo Chavez yesterday seized control of a French-run oil field, strengthening his control of the country's vast oil wealth, the lifeblood of his 'Bolivarian Revolution'.

Total SA confirmed from its Paris headquarters that the state oil company, Petroleos de Venezuela SA, 'took control of our operations' during the weekend after it refused to turn the site over to a state-run joint venture.

Mr Chavez has decided to redefine the terms under which foreign companies can operate in Venezuela, which has the largest oil reserves outside of the Middle East."

  Race Pimping in Style, racist actors and everything
CNN.com - McKinney: Race sparked tiff with police - Mar 31, 2006: "The 51-year-old legislator was surrounded by more than two dozen supporters at the Friday news conference, some carrying handwritten placards that read 'Recognize our congresswoman' and 'Is Cynthia a target?'

During the conference, held at historically black Howard University in Washington, civil rights attorney James Myart said his client was 'assaulted' by a Capitol Police officer, whose name the department refuses to release.

'Because she was assaulted and placed in impending fear of her safety, she responded,' he said. 'This case has just begun and we're going to fight, and we're going to use the U.S. Constitution.'

Myart said McKinney would seek a criminal investigation against the officer, and a civil lawsuit against both the officer and the Capitol Police is being explored."

  Rascist Race-Pimp Spewage
BREITBART.COM - Lawyer Says McKinney a Victim in Scuffle: "A lawyer for Rep. Cynthia McKinney, the Georgia congresswoman who had an altercation with a Capitol Police officer, says she was 'just a victim of being in Congress while black.'

McKinney awaited word Friday on whether she would be charged for apparently striking the officer after she entered a House office building this week unrecognized and did not stop when asked.

Two law enforcement officials said it was unlikely a warrant would be issued this week. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly."
