USDA staff taught that the pilgrims
were ´illegal aliens´ in compulsory
´Cultural Sensitivity Training´ video
that cost the taxpayer $200,000

Daily Mail [UK], by James Nye

The USDA is under fire for spending $200,000 of taxpayers money on a mandatory ´Cultural Sensitivity Training´ program in which employees were told to refer to the Pilgrims as ´illegal aliens´ and minorities as ´emerging majorities´. In previously unseen footage, diversity trainer Samuel Betances, who describes himself as a ´citizen of the world´, tells the audience to repeat that ´every federal agency has discriminated against African-Americans, Hispanics, Native American Indians and other groups.´ Made public on the government watchdog website Judicial Watch who obtained it through a Freedom of Information made on May 18th, 2012, Betances says that everyone

Let´s face it, this government is totally out of control and corrupted by 535 people in Congress that have no business being there. You could pull 535 people out of the phone book that would do a better job than these corrupt bureaucrats that pass for politicians.

Unbelievable. And once again, we´re reading about it in a UK newspaper.

Right on, #2. The Pilgrims did not cross any national boundary, as none existed. I wouldn´t expect any USDA employee or consultant to realize that the passport had not yet been devised in 1620.
By Betances´ inane standards, the Indians were "illegal aliens" too.

What the bleep is cultural sensitivity towards law breakers? What next? Sensitivity to all sorts of criminals: child molesters, rapists, murderers etc etc?

We don´t have a white-against-black racism problem in America.

We have an "Elitism" problem in America.

The elites in government, education, film and entertainment and a few other segments of society attribute their guilt and their own feelings of superiority to the attitudes of less fortunate whites.

I guess they aren´t aware (or don´t care) that there are poor whites working hard to make it on their own without the benefit of wealth redistribution.

These people have more in common with working class poor blacks than either group has with the black and white elites behind this kind of racist dogma.

I´m related to John Howland, his wife and several other people who came here on the Mayflower. So, I guess I can now be labled as an ´illegal alien.´ Where´s my loot for being an ´illegal alien´?

Illegal Alien, according to which law exactly? And shouldn´t that be "Undocumented Immigrant"? Illegal has such a negative connotation. Besides, the indians welcomed them. Remember the Thanksgiving Feast between the indians and Pilgrims?!

I can´t believe that flat outright lies are the norm now. Revisionism, lies, false statements, manipulation, etc. The truth is not even allowed in public anymore. Only lies and more lies. I cannot stand what is happening to our country. It is pure evil.

#7 Did you know 10% of Americians are related to the survivors of the Mayflower? Using same logic as the USDA, Americian Indians are also illegals since they came from somewhere else.

They weren´t illegals. They were invaders. They invaded and they conquered.
Invaders is what the "illegals" are today and conquer is what they are trying to do today. And they don´t intend to treat us as well as the invaders of the past treated the American Indians.

Ok, Ok, I confess that we have not done enough with the illigal immigrant issues... We should start righting that wrong right away. Lets get people back to where they belong or at least help them to go where they came from since they act like they don´t want to be here. I suggest we start with that group that feels strongest that they were wronged, that they ripped away from the lap of luxury back in their homeland. The fact that their leaders over there at that time were happy to get rid of them has no impact on them. So lets set aside a few billion this year to get these folks back home...one way tickets should see say 25+ million for starters. Send them back home where they can feel as equals with their countrymen and expunge all feelings of inadequacies and no longer have to hyphenate their identification as citizens. Do you suppose this group would jump at the chance to go? If not, why not? If the choice is to stay then start acting like it and strive to be fully Americans and quit acting like something is owed to you. You had the choice to go, which is it? Now, on to the next group...

University of East London bans segregated
Muslim event from its premises
Telegraph [UK], by Damian Thompson    Original Article
Posted By: Attercliffe- 4/17/2014 8:58:27 AM     Post Reply
I blogged yesterday about this "segregated" Muslim event organised by the Islamic Society of the University of East London, due to happen tonight at UEL´s main lecture theatre on its Docklands campus. Much to my surprise, UEL immediately banned it from their campus. [Snip] UEL should be congratulated over this. As I pointed out, it has an "equality and diversity" policy. It didn´t know that the dinner organised by the Islamic society--which was to include a speech by the controversial anti-gay preacher Murtaza Khan--was segregated by sex and was providing a platform for an extremist. The university´s decision to pull the

Tony Blair´s religious charity has links to an Islamic extremist group being investigated by MI5 and MI6, it has been alleged. [Snip] The organisation has been declared a terrorist group in Egypt and Saudi Arabia, and could be banned in Britain, despite insisting they do not have links to extremist factions. The Global Muslim Brotherhood Daily Watch, which has been looking into the group for 13 years, revealed that Dr Ismail Khudr Al-Shatti, an adviser to the Kuwaiti government and a member of Mr Blair’s advisory council, is a leading member of the Kuwaiti branch of the Muslim Brotherhood. the

Deep in the flat and featureless landscape of eastern Ukraine, it is all too ­possible that the outline of World War III is taking shape. Whipped up by the Kremlin ­propaganda machine and led by Russian ­military intelligence, armed men are erecting road blocks, storming police stations and ripping down the country’s flag. They are demolishing not just their own country — bankrupt, ill-run and beleaguered — but also the post-war order that has kept most of Europe and us, here in Britain, safe and free for decades. Vladimir Putin is striking at the heart of the West.

Why are the US authorities trying to extradite and imprison arguably the one man in the world with the skills and influence to bring peace, stability, and prosperity to fractured Ukraine? This week I flew to Vienna, Austria, to find out in a world exclusive interview with Ukraine´s Dmitry Firtash, the billionaire industrialist, philanthropist, and political fixer who is striving desperately to help his country forge an independent future free from the bullying of Russia and the meddling of the West in next month´s scheduled elections. And his biggest obstacle? According to Firtash, it´s Barack Obama.

   

 



 
Enjoying a free lunch? No such

perks doled out by companies

The Internal Revenue Service is considering a bold move to label perks like free lunch given to workers by companies as taxable. The agency wonders if freebies like haircuts and gym memberships are a way to compensate the highly skilled rather than just a way to jumpstart productivity. After all, argue proponents of such a tax, workers at Silicon Valley firms like Google and Facebook receive free meals from famously fancy in-house eateries every day. Some companies even go a step further by offering freebies like haircuts, car services, and child care. Typical workaday folks can expect to pay for all

Remember Lovebug? This was the computer virus that swept through a young and fresh-faced internet in May 2000. Back then we were told it would do to cyberspace what the Black Death had done to Europe in the 14th century. We all got funny emails with “ILOVEYOU” attachments and when we tried to open them our computers exploded. Or rather they didn’t, though you wouldn’t have known that from the hysteria. Then along came MyDoom, Netsky, Witty and Melissa and, now, the deliciously named Heartbleed bug, which the US security expert Bruce Schneier has described as “catastrophic” and which has

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes.

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No
