Cato immigration conference April 26, 2012: let's discredit them (CFR, Lofgren, Jacoby, Federal Reserve, NIF, NFAP) - 03/22/12
On April 26, 2012, the Cato Institute will be conducting an all-day conference ("Is Immigration Good for America?") supporting massive immigration. I urge anyone who'll be in the Washington DC area to attend with the goal of discrediting them as will be described below.
One of the major downsides of skilled immigration to the U.S. is that it also represents skilled emigration from other countries, many of which are struggling Third World countries that need all the smart people they can keep.
Amity Shlaes is a Council on Foreign Relations Senior Fellow and writes a column for Bloomberg News. As such, acknowledging that massive low-skilled immigration just might be a major cause of massive teen unemployment is something that she dare not do lest she be drummed out of the establishment.
There's a list of supposed members of the Council on Foreign Relations here, including both famous and non-famous names. Can anyone find any public figures on that list who oppose illegal immigration (for real) or who even support reducing legal immigration? If so, please leave a comment. In the meantime, here are some of their members who are on the wrong side; this list will be updated with new names occasionally:
According to this, Jeb Bush and Mack McLarty (former chief of staff of Bill Clinton) will this week be presenting a report in support of
Tom Brokaw, Wesley Clark, Tom Daschle, Obama sister, Sidwell Friends board member, others on White House Fellowships Commission - 06/17/09
The 28 members of the "President’s Commission on White House Fellowships" have been named  and include:
Rosa Brooks to Pentagon; CFR, Soros; her Darwinistic, anti-American immigration policy; journalism bailout - 04/09/09
Former Los Angeles Times columnist Rosa Brooks is going through the revolving door again, this time to be an advisor at the Defense Department, specifically to Michele Flournoy the Undersecretary of Defense for Policy. There's a lot about her not to like; here's just some of it: 1. She was affiliated with George Soros' Open Society Institute and the Council on Foreign Relations. 2. During the Clinton years, she advised Harold Koh in his previous position at the State Department. 3. In her farewell (for now) column, she advocates for a "government bailout of journalism" (link). In addition to...
From this: In violation of Barack Obama's promise to run an open and transparent transition to the next administration, an associate of convicted document thief Sandy Berger has been secretly meeting with far-left groups under the auspices of the Obama-Biden Transition Project to develop a range of pro-U.N. policies. These include placing "more [U.N.] blue helmets on U.S. troops" and forcing the U.S. to join the U.N.'s International Criminal Court (ICC)... ...While Obama comes across in the media as a "moderate" or "centrist" in foreign policy, his Transition Project is developing an...
Louis Caldera: Obama's White House Military Office director (CFR, fmr CA Assemblyman; immigration?) - 12/02/08
Another Clinton retread has joined the Barack Obama administration. This time it's Louis E. Caldera, who's been named director of the White House Military Office. Per this, that "oversees all White House military operations, including Air Force One, Camp David and presidential trips overseas".
Barack Obama: no evidence of North American Union, confirms NAFTA Superhighway (?), says not CFR member - 04/02/08
In Lancaster, Pennsylvania on 3/31/08, an audience member asked Barack Obama whether he's a member of the Council on Foreign Relations and asks about the North American Union. He denied being a member of the CFR, and said he didn't see any evidence of the NAU. However, in his discussion of the NAU he described something sounding an awful lot like the NAFTA Superhighway. If you go to one of his appearances, read back his statements (below) and tell him that he came close to verifying something that we're told doesn't exist. And, if Obama is truthful when he says he sees no evidence of the NAU...
James Kirchick of the New Republic - home of the odious Jason Zengerle - offers "Angry White Man/The bigoted past of Ron Paul", an attempt by the Beltway establishment to sink his candidacy by revealing excerpts from his old newsletters. Apparently much or all of it was ghostwritten, and the campaign tries to portray him as a (per Kirchick) "naive, absentee overseer, with minimal knowledge of what his underlings were doing on his behalf". To a good extent that doesn't wash, and many of the quotes provided are indeed very questionable in and of themselves. (The Ron Paul campaign responds to...
Holy Globalism! It was like a tinfoil festival as sometime in the 90s (perhaps July 16, 1994), Rudy Giuliani presented an award to David Rockefeller at a meeting of the Business Council for the United Nations .
A group of about 30 conservatives have sent an open letter to the rest demanding that they band together and support the Bush/Kennedy/Kyl massive illegal alien amnesty bill. The letter itself is full of half-truths, such as their claim that "it will make sure that the law is enforced first, before any other provisions of the legislation take effect".
Jerome Corsi has more here:
Walter Russell Mead of the Council on Foreign Relations says we should send retirees to Mexico and other Latin American countries: "Make it easier for retirees to move south of the border" (link). The idea is that they'll bolster those countries' economies and reduce illegal immigration.
