If you like Mexican-style fast food but support a secure and safe America, don’t eat at Chipotle. I already told you, months ago, about Chipotle’s knowing employment of thousands of illegal aliens, which it was forced to fire, after Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) investigations showed that in many cases, more than half of its employees were illegal aliens. There is no way that, when more than half your employees are illegal aliens, you don’t know about it. Now, Chipotle’s “co-leader” (that’s testicle-less liberal psycho-babble for “CEO”) Monty Moran wants immigration amnesty, and he’s allied with the reconquistador illegal alien lobby to do it. Is that really the definition of “food with integrity,” as Chipotle proclaims its product to be? That’s despite the fact that for every single opening he has at his restaurants, there are 30-40 applicants. The problem is that many of those are U.S. citizen applicants. And–ya know–we can’t have that in America . . . Americans being hired for the jobs that Americans supposedly “just won’t do.”
Chipotle & Co-Leader Monty Moran: Food w/ Racist La Raza Reconquistador “Integrity”
Moreover, Moron, er . . . Moran, met with racist, reconquista La Raza to form an alliance and strategize on how to achieve nationwide amnesty for illegal aliens. Given that, you should assume that your taco dollars helped finance a contribution to La Raza from the Chipotle co-scumbag. Remember this BS the next time you get a hankering for a Chipotle burrito:
In a so-called silent raid, Immigration and Customs Enforcement inspected the chain’s hiring records and found more than 500 undocumented workers, who had to leave the Denver-based company. It had to let go more than half of its 900 employees in Minnesota and lost others to federal scrutiny of outlets in Washington, D.C., and Virginia.

Preparations by DNC operatives for the 2012 election make it clear for the first time that the party will explicitly abandon the white working class
All pretense of trying to win a majority of the white working class has been effectively jettisoned in favor of cementing a center-left coalition made up, on the one hand, of voters who have gotten ahead on the basis of educational attainment — professors, artists, designers, editors, human resources managers, lawyers, Librarians, social workers, teachers and therapists — and a second, substantial constituency of lower-income voters who are disproportionately African-American and Hispanic.
It is instructive to trace the evolution of a political strategy based on securing this coalition in the writings and comments, over time, of such Democratic analysts as Stanley Greenberg and Ruy Teixeira. Both men were initially determined to win back the white working-class majority, but both currently advocate a revised Democratic alliance in which whites without college degrees are effectively replaced by well-educated socially liberal whites in alliance with the growing ranks of less affluent minority voters, especially Hispanics.

“Today, the man, or the store, or the home without a gun is a patsy, a soft touch for the hoods,” Tom Newburgh wrote in “Today a Gun Could Save Your Life.”
Newburgh’s credentials to make such an authoritative statement?
I ought to know, because I'm a detective on the Chicago Police Department…
That is, he was. He wrote this article half a century ago.
Regular Gun Rights Examiner readers know that every month, GUNS, the magazine I write the "Rights Watch" column for, posts the corresponding monthly issue from 50 years ago as a free download on its website, giving us a fascinating window into a past some of us are old enough to remember.
Detective Newburgh shows us how far the Windy City has devolved:
As a law enforcement officer, I wish that every honest citizen owned a gun and knew how to use it. I wish there were more shooting organizations, more arms practice by civilians- men and women. I'm not in the least afraid of a gun in the hands of an honest, competent citizen. That citizen and his gun could make my job a lot easier.
An old Texas Ranger visiting New York City was once asked what he'd do to check big city crime. He said, "I'd teach the police to shoot, first. Then I'd arm the honest people and teach them to shoot. It was straight-shooting lawmen aided by armed and straight-shooting citizens who broke up the tough gangs in the old days. It could work today."
It was citizen resistance that smashed the Jesse James gang at Northfield. What town, I wonder, is similarly ready--for today's hoods?

Palestinian Authority terrorists continued their attacks on innocent Jewish motorists over Yom Kippur, this time attacking a woman in labor and her husband as they rushed to the hospital. The husband, Ariel Goldman of Pnei Kedem, told Arutz Sheva that the two were lucky to escape with their lives.
Their ordeal began near Har Homa at 2:30 a.m., as they drove to Hadassah Ein Karem hospital in Jerusalem. Suddenly, they encountered a point in the road that had been blocked by large stones.
As Goldman slowed the car, looking for a way around the trap, several Palestinian Authority terrorists jumped out and began to hurl rocks at the car.
The attack turned into a game of cat and mouse, as Goldman looked for ways around the rocks and tried to keep moving, while the terrorists followed the car and continued to pelt it with heavy stones, using a tactic that recently resulted in two deaths near Hevron.
The terrorists “had murder in their eyes,” Goldman said.He finally managed to pass the stone barrier and speed away from the group of attackers, only to encounter a second group that attempted to stone the car near the Jerusalem neighborhood of Talpiot. Goldman managed to speed away a second time.
A policewoman he later encountered appeared uninterested by his story, but promised to notify her superiors, he said.Ariel Goldman and his wife managed to reach the hospital, where she gave birth to a baby boy. Both the baby and mother are in good condition.

Herman Cain did well in last week’s GOP debate and won a decisive straw poll victory in Florida, but his numbers in a general election match-up against
President Obama are little changed.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey of Likely U.S. Voters finds that Obama earns 39% support while Cain attracts 34%. In that match-up, 14% prefer some other candidate, and 14% are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.) A month ago, the president led Cain by seven percentage points. In March Obama held an 18 point advantage over the businessman and talk show host.

On September 11, 2011, blacks from the West Coast and the East Coast joined together and signed one of the most comprehensive legal briefs ever prepared on racial discrimination, then filed their brief today, September 12th, at 9:00 AM Pacific Daylight Time in US District Court in Seattle (Case No. C11 - 1503). The plaintiffs, who refer to the defendants as “Father of Racism,” allege that as an organization, the Democratic Party has consistently refused to apologize for the role they played in slavery and Jim Crow laws and for other subsequent racist practices from 1792 to 2011. Rev. Wayne Perryman, a former Democrat himself and the lead plaintiff in this class action lawsuit, said he was inspired to file this action after seeing the recent movie The Help. The movie takes place in the region that was exclusively controlled by Democrats for more than 150 years (the South). Mrs. Frances P. Rice, the Chair of the National Black Republican Association is also a plaintiff in the lawsuit. Mrs. Rice is a resident of Sarasota, Florida and has lived in the the South most of her life.

In August 2001, eight years after joining the New York City Fire Department, Joseph P. Spor Jr. transferred into Rescue 3 in the Bronx.It was where he belonged all along.Spor, the youngest of six children and the only boy, had finally caught up to his namesake father, who was also a firefighter and also a member of Rescue 3, also known as Big Blue.It had taken the younger Spor a while to get there. After graduating from Iona College, Spor became a Manhattan financial analyst. But office work never really suited him, and in 1994 he switched careers, joining Ladder Company 38, also in the Bronx.Away from the firehouse, Spor worked with his hands as a contractor, building decks and cabinets. He put his talent for carpentry to work at his own home in Somers, N.Y., where he and and Colleen, his wife of nine years, were raising four children, ages 6 years to 9 months. One of his final projects was a playroom for the kids.An avid weightlifter, Spor was in such terrific shape that his fellow firefighters believed he was darn near indestructible.The 35-year-old firefighter was in the south tower of the World Trade Center when it collapsed.

The NY Post is reporting that Hisham Elzanaty, the money man behind the Ground Zero mosque grifter, Sharif El-Gamal, was involved in a $5.1 million insurance scam.
Atlas readers are very familiar with the Elzanaty thief. Elzanaty, who was the man who provided most of the funding for the Cordoba Mosque (newly named "Prayer Space") building, was a large contributor to Hamas.
Hisham Elzanaty donated thousands to the Holy Land Foundation, later shuttered by the feds because of its Hamas ties. Muslim Brotherhood fronts CAIR, ISNA, ICNA, MAS, et al, were named un-indicted co-conspirators and Muslim Brotherhood fronts in the Holy Land trial (the largest terror funding trial in history).

President Barack Obama on Thursday toured a vehicle battery plant in Michigan, touting his administration’s focus on green technology and jobs, at a corporation where federal money authorized by the economic stimulus law that Obama signed at the beginning of his presidency had created "green" jobs at a cost of about $2 million in federal subsidies per job.

Buffeted by high taxes, strict regulations and uncertain state budgets, a growing number of California companies are seeking friendlier business environments outside of the Golden State.
And governors around the country, smelling blood in the water, have stepped up their courtship of California companies. Officials in states like Florida, Texas, Arizona and Utah are telling California firms how business-friendly they are in comparison.
Companies are "disinvesting" in California at a rate five times greater than just two years ago, said Joseph Vranich, a business relocation expert based
in Irvine. This includes leaving altogether, establishing divisions elsewhere or opting not to set up shop in California.
"There is a feeling that the state is not stable," Vranich said. "Sacramento can't get its act together...and that includes the governor, legislators and regulatory agencies that are running wild."
The state has been ranked by Chief Executive magazine as the worst place to do business for seven years.
"California, once a business friendly state, continues to conduct a war on its own economy," the magazine wrote.
It's so hard watching my state being run into the ground by the Dems & Unions all just to enrich themselves!

Sen. Charles Grassley, (R-Iowa) ranking member on the Senate Judiciary Committee, said on a radio interview today, while he’s not calling for a special prosecutor to investigate Operation Fast and Furious, the failed operation to track guns across the Mexican border, he would be supportive if Chairman Darrell Issa, (R-Calif.) of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform called for one.
In the interview on the Steve Gill Show, he had a couple of other interesting things to say.
Subjects: Operation Fast and Furious, border violence, U.S.-Mexico border, ATF, Project Gunrunner, President Obama
He said three things came out of the interviews with Ken Melson, the Acting Director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
1. It wasn’t just an ATF operation. FBI and DEA were involved and knew about the operation.
2. This wasn’t controlled by ATF, the U.S. Attorney in Phoenix was in charge.
3. Contrary to the information the investigators had been given by letter, everyone inolved knew guns were going across the border.
Think these are tied together?

Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack said the projects were the “foundational work” for establishing an American carbon market. “This is really sort of foundational work that’s being done,” Vilsack told reporters on a conference call on Wednesday.

The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) says the real cost of the federal government guaranteeing the business of failed mortgage giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac is $317 billion -- not the $130 billion normally claimed by the Obama administration.
In a report delivered to the House Budget Committee on June 2, the CBO said a “fair value” accounting of guaranteeing the two defunct mortgage companies – known as Government Sponsored Enterprises (GSEs) – was more than twice as high as the Office of Management and Budget had accounted for.

On March 30, the 30th anniversary of the assassination attempt on President Ronald Reagan, Jim Brady, who sustained a debilitating head wound in the attack, and his wife, Sarah, came to Capitol Hill to push for a ban on the controversial “large magazines.” Brady, for whom the law requiring background checks on handgun purchasers is named, then met with White House press secretary Jay Carney. During the meeting, President Obama dropped in and, according to Sarah Brady, brought up the issue of gun control, “to fill us in that it was very much on his agenda,” she said.
“I just want you to know that we are working on it,” Brady recalled the president telling them. “We have to go through a few processes, but under the radar.”

From the moment the modern day state of Israel declared statehood in 1948, to the end of the 1967 Six Day War, Jews were forbidden access to their holiest site, the Western Wall in Jerusalem's Old City, controlled by Jordan's Arab army.
The pre-1967 borders endorsed by President Obama would deny millions of the world's Jews access to their holiest site and force Israel to return the strategically important Golan Heights to Syria, a known state-sponsor of terrorism.
Resorting to the pre-1967 borders would mean a full withdrawal by the Israelis from the West Bank and the Jewish neighborhoods of East Jerusalem. Make no mistake, there has always been a Nation of Israel and Jerusalem has been and must always be recognized as its rightful capital.
In short, the Hamas-run Palestinian state envisioned by President Obama would be devastating to Israel and the world's 13.3 million Jews. It would be a Pavlovian style reward to a declared Islamic terrorist organization, and an unacceptable policy initiative.
America should never negotiate with the Palestinian Authority- which has aligned itself with Hamas. Palestine is a region, not a people or a modern state. Based upon Roman Emperor Hadrian's declaration in 73 AD, the original Palestinian people are the Jewish people.
It's time for the American people to stand by our strongest ally, the Jewish State of Israel, and reject this foreign policy blunder of epic proportions.
While the winds of democracy may blow strong in the Middle East, history has demonstrated that gaps in leadership can lead to despotic regimes. I have questions for President Obama: 'Who will now lead in Egypt?' and 'Why should American taxpayers provide foreign aid to a nation where the next chapter in their history may be the emergence of another radical Islamic state?'
President Obama has not stood for Israel or the Jewish people and has made it clear where the United States will stand when Palestine attempts to gain recognition of statehood by the United Nations. The President should focus on the real obstacle to security- the Palestinian leadership and its ultimate goal to eliminate Israel and the Jewish people."

but more important, this is going to bring a focus on the IMF, which through the back door has been putting the American taxpayers on the hook to bail out Greece and Ireland and those European countries which are in fact bailouts of those European banks. And Ron Paul is right on top of this, and, Joe, I see this as bringing the IMF, at this critical point, when the bailouts in Europe are in big trouble, it is put a limelight on the one institution other than the European Central Bank, which is baling out these European countries and banks."

BREAKING: Appeals panel hearing ObamaCare suit comprised of 2 Obama nominees and a Clinton nominee | Philip Klein | Beltway Confidential | Washington Examiner
A three-judge federal appeals panel comprised of two Obama nominees and a Clinton nominee will hear arguments later this morning in two lawsuits challenging the constitutionality of the national health care law.
The makeup of the U.S. Fourth Circuit of Appeals panel is crucial, because in lower court rulings so far, Democratic judges have upheld the law while Republican judges have declared it unconstitutional.
The judges on the panel will be Obama nominees James A. Wynn, Jr and Andre M. Davis, who will sit on the panel along with Clinton nominee Diana Gribbon Motz.
According to the Fourth Circuit, the panel is chosen by "a computer program designed to achieve total random selection."Read more at the Washington Examiner: http://washingtonexaminer.com/blogs/beltway-confidential/2011/05/breaking-appeals-panel-hearing-obamacare-suit-comprised-2-obama-n#ixzz1LyImYXvk

Three Convicted in Terror-Related Cases Later Granted U.S. Citizenship by Obama Administration | CNSnews.com
Three people convicted of crimes as a result of a terrorism-related investigation by the Department of Justice (DOJ) were later naturalized as U.S. citizens by the Obama administration, according to federal auditors.
The March 2011 audit (released on April 21, 2011) by the Government Accountability Office (GAO), entitled Criminal Alien Statistics: Information on Incarcerations, Arrests and Costs, shows that three individuals were among “defendants where the investigation involved an identified link to international terrorism but they were charged with violating other statutes [not directly related to terrorism], including fraud, immigration, drugs, false statements, and general conspiracy charges,” referred by DOJ as Category II terrorism-related cases.
The three individuals in question can be found in a DOJ list of unsealed terrorism-related investigations conducted from Sept. 11, 2001 through Mar. 18, 2010. There are 403 defendants on that list of which, according to the GAO, at least 43 percent were aliens--both legal (26 percent) and illegal (17 percent)--at the time they were charged with crimes.

Brownsville police are trying to determine who left an IED or Improvised Explosive Device on the southbound lane of U.S. Expressway 77/83 Sunday afternoon.
A concerned citizen found the device around 4:54 p.m., police spokesman Eddie Garcia said.
Authorities shut down the expressway’s southbound lane from FM 1732 to Alton Gloor Boulevard for about three hours, while the police department’s bomb squad checked out the device, Garcia said.
At about 6:45 p.m. the bomb squad “rendered the device safe,” Garcia said. The southbound lane of the expressway reopened at 8 p.m.

Even before I began hearing from outraged, demoralized ICE agents, their families, and their union, I was already outraged by the latest behavior of Barack Hussein Obama’s Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) chief John the Moron Morton. Last week, he attacked his own agents for doing their jobs,
and he made his attacks during a personal appearance at a Muslim-dominated tax-funded agency that brings Muslim illegal aliens into the country, helps them stay here and evade authorities, and helps them rip off Medicaid and other government entitlements. Oh, and the agency also gave job training to the Detroit terror cell. Congrats, Dhimmi Morton. Remember, this jerk is the Assistant Secretary of Homeland Security. (As you may recall, in July, ICE agents had a “vote of no confidence” in Morton, which passed unanimously, 259-0.)

The "transparency" in the Obama administration means sometimes a question can't even get asked.
The discovery came today at the daily White House news briefing with press secretary Jay Carney, who responded to a request to be allowed to ask about the president's positions: "I'm not going to take your questions."
Ironically, Les Kinsolving, WND's correspondent at the White House and the No. 2 reporter on the White House beat, had wanted to ask about Obama's openness.
"In the Washington Post, the president of the Society of Professional Journalists wrote of the Obama administration, 'Reporters' questions often go unanswered. When replies are given they frequently are more scripted than meaningful. What is the White House response to this?" was what Kinsolving had wanted to ask.Read more: Transparency inquiry can't even get asked http://www.wnd.com/?pageId=288793#ixzz1Jzs0bFYr

Obama's Department of Justice Sues School District on Behalf of Hajj-tripping Muslim Teacher - Atlas Shrugs
More Islamic law from the Sharia President of the United States. Is there no end to his madness?
Safoorah Khan had taught middle school math for only nine months in this tiny Chicago suburb when she made an unusual request. She wanted three weeks off for a pilgrimage to Mecca. The school district, faced with losing its only math lab instructor during the critical end-of-semester marking period, said no. Khan, a devout Muslim, resigned and made the trip anyway.
Justice Department lawyers examined the same set of facts and reached a different conclusion: that the school district’s decision amounted to outright discrimination against Khan. They filed an unusual lawsuit, accusing the district of violating her civil rights by forcing her to choose between her job and her faith.
Who starts a teaching job and demands close to a month off for hajj? What teacher would leave her students in the lurch for a month? And who pushed a Justice Department completely at odds with its goals and objectives to "examine" the case of the hajj pilgrim? Islamic supremacists seeking to impose Islam on the public square, that's who. And what justice department would sue on behalf of Muslim Brotherhood-tied Islamic supremacists? Iran? Malaysia? Egypt? No, Obama's America. And Obama has made this the mission of his presidency. This is hardly the first case of the DoJ suing to impose Islam on the secular
Integrity. Our leadership role and the funds entrusted to us by the taxpaying public demand that we maintain the highest levels of integrity and trustworthiness. This affects not only the way we carry ourselves as representatives of the law, but the manner in which we manage the resources entrusted to us to carry out our mission. (from Department of Justice Goals and Objectives) Obama's Department of Justice dropped charges against night stick wielding new Black Panthers carrying weapons while menacing voters and blocking polling places on election day.
But Obama and Holder sued a New Jersey county, alleging it refused to accommodate a Muslim employee's khimar, a religious head covering. Yvette Beshier, a corrections officer in Essex County, NJ, demanded to wear Islamic garb to work. On duty as a corrections officer, she should wear religiously neutral garb. Off duty, she can dress any way she wants. And who can forget the most egregious acts of sabatoge at the DoJ? Lema Bashir, stealth jihadist at Obama's DoJ, sabotaged and disenfranchised the Military vote.

Former Democratic Party Chairman Michael McGuinness and ex-operations director Jason Bauer, both of Waterford Township, were arraigned Wednesday before Oakland Circuit Judge James Alexander.
They face charges related to Independent Tea Party filings, false affidavits and forged documents that occurred between July 23 and July 26 last year.
Both stood mute to the charges and were released on $25,000 personal bond each, pending an April 13 hearing before Alexander.
The charges include felonies that carry up to 14 years in prison. Neither could be reached for comment

Washington— A House panel approved a bill to block the Environmental Protection Agency from regulating tailpipe emissions — but the measure's future is uncertain.
The bill sponsored by Rep. Fred Upton, R-St. Joseph, chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, and Rep. Ed Whitfield, R-Ky., would overturn a 2007 Supreme Court decision that said the EPA has the legal right to regulate tailpipe emissions as a danger to public health under the Clean Air Act.
The committee's Energy and Power subcommittee, after two hours of debate, approved the measure by a voice vote. House Republicans are putting the measure on a fast track, with opening statements planned for Monday by the full committee and a vote by the full House later this month.
The 2007 Supreme Court decision opened the door to California imposing its own tailpipe emissions limits. The prospect of state and federal emissions limits has been harshly criticized by automakers.From The Detroit News: http://detnews.com/article/20110310/AUTO01/103100441/House-panel-votes-to-bar-EPA-tailpipe-emission-regulations#ixzz1GJimAvOf

The complaint that’s been filed with the Government Accountability Board claims Walker violated ethics regulations, including those prohibiting use of state

One of the main groups organizing the Wisconsin union protests is a spinoff from an activist academy modeled after Marxist community organizer Saul Alinsky and described as teaching tactics of direct action, confrontation and intimidation.
President Obama once funded that academy - the radical Midwest Academy. He has been closely tied to the group's founder, socialist activist Heather Booth.
Obama also is closely tied to scores of other radicals behind the Wisconsin opposition protesting Gov. Scott Walker's proposal for most state workers to pay 12 percent of their health care premiums and 5.8 percent of their salary toward their own pensions.
Walker's proposal reportedly would save $300 million in the next two years for a state that faces a financial crisis amid a $3.6 billion deficit..
A slew of radical groups and unions have been organizing the protests against Walker's proposal as well as counter protests to a recent tea party rally in support of the governor's plan.
Obama's own political machine has aided in organizing protests in Wisconsin

Moving aggressively to make good on election promises to slash the federal budget, the House GOP today unveiled an eye-popping plan to eliminate $2.5 trillion in spending over the next 10 years. Gone would be Amtrak subsidies, fat checks to the Legal Services Corporation and National Endowment for the Arts, and some $900 million to run President Obama's healthcare reform program.
What's more, the "Spending Reduction Act of 2011" proposed by members of the conservative Republican Study Committee, chaired by Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan, would reduce current spending for non-defense, non-homeland security and non-veterans programs to 2008 levels, eliminate federal control of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, cut the federal workforce by 15 percent through attrition, and cut some $80 billion by blocking implementation of Obamacare. [See a slide show of the top Congressional travel destinations.]
Some of the proposed reductions will surely draw Democratic attack, such as cutting the Ready to Learn TV Program, repeal of the Davis-Bacon Act, the elimination of the Energy Star Program, and cutting subsidies to the Woodrow Wilson Center. [See editorial cartoons about the GOP.]

In 1787, the Constitution proclaimed a political philosophy that has led to greater well-being and happiness for more people over more centuries than anything Europe's totalitarians ever did. But precisely because the Constitution limits the greed of the power-hungry, it is always under assault. Every generation needs to understand that because human nature has not changed since 1800.

What a damn good idea!
