An effective way to oppose Bilderberg in less than five minutes - 05/29/14

There are plenty of hard and/or ineffective ways to oppose the Bilderberg conference. Instead, I'll describe something you can do in less than five minutes that - if enough people joined in - would have a measurable impact. The goal of this approach is to make Bilderberg toxic to some degree. That is, leaders wouldn't want to be caught attending one of their meetings. Wouldn't that go a long way towards reducing Bilderberg influence?

Number of students who excel at math: USA 1/4 million; Korea 1/8 million; India 100,000; Mexico 3500 to 6000 - 01/03/12

From the study "Producing superstars for the economic Mundial: The Mexican Predicament with quality of education" by Lant Pritchett and Martina Viarengo (Harvard University, John F. Kennedy School of Government, November 19, 2008, PDF at peekURL.com/zp677t8 ):

Harvard helps illegal alien deprive U.S. citizen of a Harvard education (Maria Sacchetti, Drew Gilpin Faust, Cleopatra Andreadis) - 06/12/10

The latest attempt to promote the anti-American DREAM Act is the case of a illegal alien [1] who's studying at Harvard and who might be deported after having been picked up by ICE while trying to fly from San Antonio back to Boston [2].

Why do Harvard, Drew Faust, and Elizabeth Pezza want illegal aliens to take educations from U.S. citizens? - 04/04/10

Elizabeth Pezza - staff writer for the Harvard University Crimson newspaper - offers "Living in the Shadows/Their hopes of immigration reform repeatedly unfulfilled, undocumented students endure an effectively unforeseeable future" (thecrimson.com/article/2010/4/1/undocumented-students-harvard-act). It's a PIIPP-ish article (see that link for what that means and examples) that, instead of doing news reporting, advocates for the anti-American DREAM Act. That bill would let illegal aliens take college educations away from U.S. citizens and, despite having over 3500 words, Pezza doesn't even...

Harvard Undergraduate Legal Committee wimps out over Jim Gilchrist appearance, not smart enough to debate - 10/16/09

Jim Gilchrist of the Minuteman Project was scheduled to speak at a Harvard University immigration conference tomorrow. However, he's now been disinvited by the group that organized the event, the Harvard Undergraduate Legal Committee (hcs.harvard.edu/~legalcom). Per them (link): "Mr. Gilchrist’s participation in the conference on the behalf of the Minutemen Project was not compatible with providing an environment for civil, educational, and productive discourse on immigration, and we cannot host him at this time." In other words, they're either far-lefties who don't appreciate open debate and...

David Cutler of Harvard keeps lying about who's covered under universal healthcare (Melinda Beeuwkes Buntin, CAP) - 06/24/09

Professor David Cutler of Harvard University and Melinda Beeuwkes Buntin of the Rand Corporation offer a report entitled "The Two Trillion Dollar Solution/Saving Money by Modernizing the Health Care System" (published by the Center for American Progress, americanprogress.org/issues/2009/06/2trillion_solution.html). It contains a major lie, and one that Cutler has engaged in before: The fundamental challenge in health reform is to reduce the growth rate of health care costs. If annual cost increases can be lowered, then workers’ incomes will increase, labor market distortions will decline, and...

Barney Frank deflects semi-tough questions - 04/07/09

There's a recent exchange between Rep. Barney Frank and a student at Harvard University concerning TARP on the video below [1]. I don't have enough knowledge to tell who's telling the truth, but it's clear that Frank "won" or at least didn't lose.

Felipe Calderon Feb. 2008 U.S. visit: Eliot Spitzer, Blagojevich, Schwarzenegger, Villaraigosa, Fabian Nunez - 02/09/08

Mexico's president Felipe Calderon will be visiting parts of their former territory next week, stopping in New York, Boston, Chicago, Sacramento, and Los Angeles but apparently avoiding Washington DC. In addition to U.S. officials, and some who are supposedly U.S. officials, he'll probably also be meeting with community leaders, such as those from non-profits, "hometown associations", the leaders of his PAN party who operate inside the U.S., and the like. Unfortunately, it's difficult to find a listing, but if anyone could leave information in comments that would be quite helpful. In...

Letter: last 100 conservatives who support Senate amnesty bill must band together! - 06/05/07

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".

Independent Task Force on Immigration - 01/15/07

A group convened by the Migration Policy Institute in partnership with Manhattan Institute and the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars which published "Immigration and America's Future:A New Chapter" ( link) in [[September, 2006]]. Supports a "new, secure Social Security card" (possibly a national ID card) and "path to legal status for unauthorized immigrants" (a massive amnesty for illegal aliens). As of creation time, this is the list of those involved:
