The Cost to US Taxpayers for Accepting Immigrants is $135 BILLION Per Year!

The US has granted citizenship to one-million immigrants per year for decades. They bring family members into the US through ‘chain immigration’ which strains the economy and the culture in many ways. Illegal immigration is on top of that, and costs taxpayers an estimated $135 billion per year for medical care, education, welfare, and law-enforcement.

A study from the Federation for American Immigration Reform found that 11-million illegal immigrants cost taxpayers $135 billion per year for free medical care, education, and law-enforcement. While illegal alien workers do pay an estimated $19-billion per year in taxes, there is a deficit of $116 billion.

The Center for Immigration Studies says that chain immigration, which allows relatives of migrants to come to the US, has resulted in one migrant bringing in an average of 3.45 more people with him into the US. Mexican immigrants average more than 6 additional family members brought into the US. 24% are over 50 and become eligible for Social Security benefits. If DACA immigrants are granted amnesty, they are expected to bring in millions more people to the US.

Simon Rosenberg of the New Democratic Network tries to justify mass immigration by claiming that illegal immigrants, who make up 5% of the US workforce, add to the GDP by hundreds of billions of dollars. Tucker argues that GDP is not the same as wealth because there is no consideration for the cost.

There are almost 100 million Americans who are not working that could fill the jobs by illegal immigrants. The opioid epidemic in America is linked to the unemployment. Immigrants send billions in earnings back to Mexico, which is the second largest cash flow to that country.

Rosenberg agreed that when the US allows one million low wage workers to immigrate into the US per year, they lower the wages in America.

The Left supports immigration because 80% of the immigrants vote Democrat.

College Student Goes Beserk over MAGA Hat Saying It Represents Genocide

(Vulgar language warning.)  A female student at the University of California, Riverside, stole a ‘Make America Great Again’ cap off the head of another student and became hysterical when school personnel asked her to return the property to its owner. [We are posting this episode, not because of its news value, but because it shows how thoroughly some students have been programmed into believing that enforcement of America’s immigration laws is tantamount to genocide, and it reveals the deep hatred that springs from that. If America ever falls to a Communist “People’s Revolution” this is the type of “people” who will be chanting for the execution of anyone who stood in the way – just like it happened in Russia, China, and Cuba. [Time is running short. Freedom Force awaits you.] -GEG

  • An enraged University of California, Riverside stole a classmate’s “Make America Great Again” hat, proclaiming that it “represents genocide.”
  • The thief even prevailed upon administrators to prohibit the victim from wearing the hat on campus, becoming even more apoplectic when the property was returned.

A Trump-supporting student at the University of California, Riverside had his MAGA hat stolen by a peer who demanded that administrators refuse to allow him to continue to wear it.

A video of the incident obtained by Campus Reform shows an enraged female student taking the hat to the school’s Student Life Department as Matthew Vitale fruitlessly attempts to explain to the young woman that the hat is his property.

“Your f***ing freedom of speech is genocide, homeboy.”

“So this guy thought it would be a good idea to go into a conference wearing this f***ing hat,” the student who stole the hat states. “Look at the kind of sh*t he’s wearing, You know what this represents? This represents genocide—genocide of a bunch of people.”

Vitale then tries to explain that “you do not get to take other people’s property that is legally theirs in this country,” to which the unidentified thief replies, “man, f*** your laws.”

“Do you have any f***ing conscience?” she goes on to ask, questioning why Vitale would dare to wear a MAGA hat on campus and telling him that his “f***ing freedom of speech is genocide, homeboy.”

Tennessee Church Shooter Wanted to Help People But Had a Troubled Background

Antioch, Tennessee: Emanuel Samson, the 25-year old Sudanese man who opened fire in a church, killing one woman, was the subject of several police calls before the attack. There were two domestic disturbance calls involving a woman identified as his girlfriend and, in another instance, he called his father and threatened to kill himself. In 2010, Samson posted on social media that he wanted to be either a psychologist or a preacher and wanted to help people. [It is highly speculative, but we can’t help notice the parallel to many other shootings in which the killers were on anti-depressant drugs, which are known to induce impulses of suicide and homocide. Hopefully, some brave journalist will probe into this possibility.] -GEG

NASHVILLE — In 2012, Emanuel K. Samson greeted a Sunday morning with warm enthusiasm.

“Rise & shine,” he wrote on Facebook in January of that year. “It’s church time!”

It had become a typical refrain. For years, Samson wrote regularly of his Christian faith and his excitement about going to church.

At times, he offered to bring friends along so he could grow his church family.

But Sunday, more than five years later, was different.

More: Nashville church shooting suspect made cryptic Facebook posts

At 10:01 a.m., he sent a message to his employers at Crimson Security Service saying he would not be returning to work. Within an hour, investigators said, he arrived at Burnette Chapel Church of Christ in Antioch, Tenn., in a hail of gunfire.

Now, police say, the congregation he once called home has lost a member at his hands.

Samson, 25, left Melanie Crow to die in the parking lot after shooting her multiple times, police said. Inside, police and witnesses said, he sprayed the sanctuary with bullets, indiscriminately hitting six people and pistol whipping another.

Samson is scheduled to appear in court Wednesday morning.

Multiple interactions with police

The portrait of a troubled man has emerged after revelations of a series of events in the months before that explosion of violence.

On Jan. 29, Samson’s girlfriend told police in Murfreesboro, Tenn., that he punched and broke a TV during a fight. On Feb. 11, Samson told police the same woman had come to his apartment and pushed on the door when he asked her to leave.

No charges were filed in either case.

On June 27, Samson threatened to kill himself in an alarming text message to his father. “… I have a gun to my head …,” he wrote.

But Nashville police officers found Samson to be fine when they located him at an office for G4S, a private security firm.

Samson never worked for G4S — a spokeswoman there said he was not offered a position after a background check.

According to state records, Samson was licensed as an unarmed security guard from January 2014 to January 2016, but that license had expired. He was in a class last Friday trying to be re-certified, according to Nashville police.

Crimson Security’s legal adviser said Samson had reported for training on his first day of work Saturday. He was terminated after saying he would not work Sunday.

“There was no incident or indication of any problem with Mr. Samson at any time during his shift,” the adviser, Laural Hemenway, said in a statement.

Hemenway said Samson had begun the state mandated training that would allow him to renew his license.

Silicon Valley Elitist Starts Religion that Worships Artifical Intelligence as a God

Anthony Levandowski, a multi-millionaire Silicon Valley elitist, started a religious organization, the Way of the Future, based around the concept of worshiping artificial intelligence as a God. Singularity is the goal, where man merges with computer, and the biological body is obsolete.

Documents uncovered as part of a separate court case reveal that multi-millionaire Silicon Valley elitist Anthony Levandowski started a religion based around the concept of worshipping artificial intelligence as a God.

Levandowski, who is currently embroiled in a high profile lawsuit with Google over accusations he stole sensitive data about their self-driving car program and gave it to Uber, founded a religious organization called Way of the Future two years ago.

The goal of the religion is to “develop and promote the realization of a Godhead based on Artificial Intelligence,” in line with the species reaching the singularity, the point at which computers surpass humanity in intelligence.

Although the group has not responded to requests from the IRS for the forms it must submit annually to operate as a non-profit religious corporation, “Documents filed with California show that Levandowski is Way of the Future’s CEO and President, and that it aims “through understanding and worship of the Godhead, [to] contribute to the betterment of society,” reports Wired Magazine.

As we have previously documented, the Singularity is embraced by many Silicon Valley elitists as part of their drive to achieve immortality by merging man with machine.

Max Keiser Warns that Leveraged Buyouts Could Create A New Feudalism

Max Keiser says the #1 bubble in the US is the bond bubble that is at a 240-year historic high due to low interest rates. Interest rates are at record lows so that central banks can prop up ailing commercial banks by buying their toxic assets, and that accounts for the $4.5 billion on the Federal Reserve’s asset balance sheet.

Keiser believes that, instead of the bubble popping, the entire stock market may be taken private through a process called leveraged buyouts. By that he means the largest corporations will borrow money created by banks out of nothing to purchase controlling interest in their corporate competitors. To get the money, the borrowers pledge the assets of the to-be-acquired companies as collateral for the loans. After the companies are acquired, the buyer sells off bits and chunks of the assets of the acquired companies to pay off the loans.

When the process is done, the acquired companies are no longer competitors and, in fact, may not even exist; the buyer has made a huge profit, the banks have collected a huge amount of interest; the marketplace is another step away from free enterprise capitalism and a step closer to a new form of feudalism in which there are economic lords and serfs with no middle class. Already, 83% of the stocks traded are controlled by 1% of the population. When that figure becomes essentially 100%, the stock market will be private. -GEG


Yvette Felarca, the Antifa Middle School Teacher and A Leader of BAMN Arrested for Battery

Berkeley: Yvette Felarca, one of the top leaders of BAMN (By Any Means Necessary) and a notoriously violent protester, was arrested on charges of battery and resisting arrest. She was arrested a few months ago for assault and inciting a riot in 2016. Felarca is a middle-school teacher. [Question: Why isn’t this woman behind bars? Who can be a serial thug and an inciter to mob violence and still be teaching in a public school and remain free to practice her craft? Do you think the judicial system might be a bit soft on Leftist agitators?] -GEG

An infamous “anti-fascist” teacher was arrested again Tuesday in Berkeley after an Antifa “Victory March.”

Police in riot gear arrested Yvonne Felarca, a Berkeley middle school teacher and Antifa activist, for resisting arrest and battery, according to Campus Reform. Felarca spearheads the Coalition to Defend Affirmative Action, Integration & Immigrant Rights and Fight for Equality by Any Means Necessary (BAMN).

Felarca was previously arrested in July for inciting a 2016 riot, participating in the riot, and assault by means of force likely to inflict great bodily injury, reported CBS Sacramento. The teacher appeared on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” defending her successful endeavor to shut down conservative provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos’ February Berkeley speech.

Democrat Congressmen Reveal That Either They or Former Director of the FBI, James Comey, Are Lying

Roger Stone, an advisor to President Trump, says that he recently testified before a congressional panel but was frustrated by the fact that he was not allowed to challenge Democrat Congressmen who publicly smeared him with charges of collusion with Russia, which he says are totally false. The reason is that his testimony was held in secret session (for which there was no reasonable purpose except to prevent the transcript from being published). Stone says that, during the secret session, Congresswoman, Jackie Speier, and Congressman, Adam Schiff, said the FBI inspected the DNC servers that, allegedly, were hacked by the Russians. To the contrary, former FBI Director James Comey and former Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson both previously testified that the FBI never examined the servers. [Who do you think is lying?] -GEG

Roger Stone Jr. appeared before the House Intelligence Committee in a secret testimony that we are sure will never see the light of day, and its a shame because what Stone says he stumbled upon during the closed door session is stunning.

Stone claims that an internal mixup occurred between Democrats lawmakers (and rapid Russia haters) Schiff and Speier from California.

According to The Gateway Pundit, the revelation revolves around the fact that Schiff and Speier both claim that the FBI was able to look at the DNC’s servers, which of course contradicts what both former-FBI Director James Comey and Homeland Security Secretary Johnson both asserted under oath.

Here is Roger Stones’ statement via Infowars…

When I made the case that I did not believe that the DNC had been hacked by the Russians, in fact, that I believed that it had not been hacked at all, and made the point that the Democratic National Committee had refused to allow the FBI to inspect is servers, instead using a paid-for IT firm called CloudStrike, I was corrected by Congress[woman] Jackie Speier of California, who informed me that she now knew that the DNC had, in fact, turn over their servers to the FBI. This was, essentially, seconded by Congressman Adam Schiff of California, this came to an extraordinary surprise to Trey Gowdy, the Republican from South Carolina. Mr. Gowdy pointed out, to his Democratic colleagues, that FBI Director James Comey and Homeland Security Secretary Johnson, had both testified – under oath – to the House Intelligence Committee, that the FBI had not been allowed to examine the DNC servers. This is a bombshell revelation, somebody is lying. It is either Congressman Schiff and Congress[woman] Speier, or, of course, it is Mr. Comey and Secretary Johnson.”

US Department of Justice Takes Steps to Restore Free Speech on College Campuses

US Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced that the Justice Department now will ensure that free speech is not hindered on taxpayer-funded colleges and universities. An estimated 1 in 10 US colleges have ‘free-speech-zone’ policies that limit freedom of expression on campus to out-of-the-way areas. Sessions takes issue with college administrators who prohibit speech in advance of an event if there is a possibility that it will be met with protest. This is a concept known as the “heckler’s veto’ whereby free speech can be denied simply by some organization threatening to demonstrate against it.


The Trump administration thrust itself into the midst of the battle over free speech on college campuses Tuesday, siding with activists in a case challenging a Georgia school’s strict limits on where and how students can express themselves.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions warned that freedom of thought and speech are “under attack” on college campuses, and he called on university officials to “boldly and unequivocally” defend free expression rather than stifle it.

“The American university was once the center of academic freedom — a place of robust debate, a forum for the competition of ideas,” Mr. Sessions said as he spoke to students at Georgetown Law School in Washington. “But it is transforming into an echo chamber of political correctness and homogenous thought, a shelter for fragile egos.”

While the attorney general said the problems concern all sides of the political spectrum, the case in which the Justice Department sought to intervene involved a Christian student who challenged Georgia Gwinnett College’s “free speech zone” policy.

Chike Uzuegbunam said the school violated his First Amendment rights when officials told him he could not distribute flyers about his Christian faith unless he did so in one of the school’s two “free speech expression areas,” and even then he would be required to get advance approval.

The Justice Department filed a statement of interest in the case, which allows government attorneys to weigh in on legal matters presented without being party to the lawsuit.

The department said the college’s speech policies “were not content-neutral, established an impermissible heckler’s veto, and were not narrowly tailored to achieve a compelling government interest.”

Dozens of students and law school faculty protested Mr. Sessions’ speech by kneeling on steps outside the building. The demonstration harked to pro football players who knelt during the national anthem before games this year.

A handful of protesters who attended Mr. Sessions’ speech stood briefly with tape over their mouths after he finished.

The Justice Department moved in the Georgia case as universities across the country are struggling to find a balance between free speech and, in cases of state universities, the First Amendment and protecting students who say they are offended or feel threatened by the views of others on campus.

Over the weekend, the University of California, Berkeley, spent $800,000 to provide security for an appearance by conservative speaker Milo Yiannopoulos, who spoke for just 15 minutes before noisy protests cut him off.

As college administrators seek to walk that line, they often have settled on overly restricted policies, said Ken Paulson, president of the Newseum Institute’s First Amendment Center.

“You can set policies for how a speaker gets invited, establish broad guidelines on where speech is permissible, but you can’t do that in a way that targets one point of a view or another or limits free speech on campus,” Mr. Paulson said.

Mr. Sessions said the Georgia case is just the beginning and the Justice Department intends to file statements of interest in other college free speech cases.

“A national recommitment to free speech on campus and to ensuring First Amendment rights is long overdue,” Mr. Sessions said.

He took specific issue with college administrators who sought to prohibit speech in advance if there is even a threat that such speech will be met with protest — a concept known as the “heckler’s veto.”

“This permissive attitude toward the heckler’s veto has spawned a cottage industry of protesters who have quickly learned that school administrators will capitulate to their demands,” Mr. Sessions said. “Protesters are now routinely shutting down speeches and debates across the country in an effort to silence voices that insufficiently conform with their views.”

The US Government Will Create a Cryptocurrency — And You Will Be Forced To Use It

Investor, Doug Casey, predicts that the Federal Reserve will issue its own cryptocurrency, possibly called “Fedcoin”.  It will be based on blockchain technology (the same as Bitcoin) that will be exchanged for US dollars on a 1:1 ratio. This, however, will not be secure from government control as private cryptocurrencies are. The Fed will be able to create and destroy ledger entries, similar to how it now brings Federal-Reserve Notes into and out of existence. Like present paper currency, transactions will be decentralized, but supply will be centralized. The economy also will become centralized and will move into a cashless economy, which is the end goal of the international banking system. -GEG

The U.S. Federal Reserve will not only issue its own cryptocurrency but will also make sure Americans use it. That’s the prediction of currency guru Doug Casey who has an uncanny record of being correct about economic and political trends. His latest book, Surviving Fedcoin: How to Protect Yourself (and Profit) from America’s Coming Currency Change, is a public bet that the U.S. government will issue its own bitcoin which Casey views as “the last arrow” in its money quiver.

How will the dynamic play out? He speculates,

“To start with, I suspect it’s going to be a parallel currency. Perhaps usable just within the U.S. which, in effect, would be a form of foreign exchange controls even more effective than the inability of Americans to open up foreign bank and brokerage accounts today [due to monetary control through FATCA]…I think it’s a near certainty that they’re going to do something like this and soon.”


fb521c2678Fedcoin refers to cryptocurrency and/or protocol established by a central bank. National banks could forge their own ‘bitcoin’ with comparative ease and bitcoin consultants have sketched possible scenarios on how.

In “Some Thoughts on Fedcoin – a Fed backed cryptocurrency” (March 9, 2015),  Albert Szmigielski suggests, “[T]he Fed should premine all the currency that they want to issue on a blockchain….A premine happens where all (or part of) the cryptocurrency is issued in the first block, the genesis block. Then the Fed would just exchange the fedcoin for a dollar each.”

In the article entitled “Fedcoin” (October 19, 2014), J.P. Koning speculates, “The Fed would create a new blockchain called Fedcoin. Or it might create a Ripple style ledger by the same name. It doesn’t matter which. There would be an important difference between Fedcoin and more traditional cryptoledgers. One user—the Fed—would get special authority to create and destroy ledger entries….The Fed would…provide two-way physical convertibility between both of its existing liability types—paper money and electronic reserves—and Fedcoin at a rate of 1:1.”

Koning draws upon the work of mathematician and economist Sina Motamedi for “a more technical explanation for how this would work in the case of a blockchain-style ledger.” Motamedi advises, “The simplest way for a central bank to create its own crypto-currency is for it to fork the Bitcoin protocol into a new protocol that is unchanged in every way except that, going forward, the central bank would set and adjust the block mining reward at its discretion…. [L]ike paper currency, the central bank’s crypto-currency would be both decentralized (in transaction) and centralized (in supply).”

Discussions have been encouraged by the attention governments are directing toward Fedcoin. When the Bank of England released a paper (February 2015) that addressed the subject, the bitcoin-processing company Payment21 was not alone in asking, “Bank of England: Why might central banks issue digital currencies?”

In America, similar scenarios occur. In June 2016, central bankers from 90-some countries met behind closed doors in Washington D.C. and conferred with bitcoin experts. Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen opened the conference, which included the International Monetary Fund, the World Bank and Bank for International Settlements.

Adopting blockchain as a protocol to facilitate bank transfers was the focus but issuing ‘official’ digital currencies was actively explored. Adam Ludwin, CEO of the blockchain company Chain, delivered a speech entitled “Why Central Banks Will Issue Digital Currency.” Ludwin urged governmental attendees to use the revolutionary shift to create new assets for themselves.

Mueller’s Russia Investigation Spirals Further Out-of-Control with IRS Cooperation

The IRS initially refused to cooperate with Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation and also refused to participate in the Manafort raid.  Now, however, the FBI is receiving tax information from the IRS on real estate and banking that goes back 11 years. ELEVEN YEARS! Moles in the Treasury Department convinced the IRS to do everything possible to try to find some dirt on President Trump. -GEG


The Mueller investigation is so out of control that the IRS clashed with the Special Counsel’s team all summer over the broad scope and the Manafort raid according to a new report by CNN.

The IRS is now sharing information with Mueller’s team about Trump campaign associates. Mueller’s team is looking at everything tax related which includes real estate and banking. The IRS is concerned because Mueller is going back 11 years in his search. ELEVEN YEARS.

After being at odds for months, the two camps came to an agreement after consultation from officials at the Treasury Department.

Via CNN:

Part of the concern centered on the far-reaching and broad requests from Mueller’s team. In the case of Manafort, Mueller’s investigators are reaching back 11 years as they investigate possible tax and financial crimes, according to search warrant documents. Mueller is bound by a written order issued by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein in May which allows the special counsel to investigate “any matters that arose or may arise directly from the investigation.”

After several months of being at odds, one source said, the IRS Criminal Investigation division is now sharing information about campaign associates, including Manafort and former White House national security adviser Michael Flynn. The sharing happened after the two camps reached an agreement following consultation with officials at the Treasury Department.

The IRS did not participate in the Manafort raid over the summer; the raid was carried out only by FBI agents. This is highly unusual since this particular probe centers around financial issues.

Tension between the IRS and the special counsel played out behind the scenes of the high-profile raid on Manafort’s Alexandria, Virginia, home this summer, according to multiple sources.

CNN also states that it is unclear whether Mueller has President Trump’s tax returns. If the Special Counsel does have Trump’s tax returns, Deputy AG Rosenstein would have to sign off on it being that it’s a sensitive matter.

Judicial Watch Has Filed Lawsuits Against the Trump Administration to Force the President to Get Rid of His Corrupt Appointees

Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch is using law suits to pressure President Trump to get rid of corrupt hangovers from the Obama Administration and those loyal to the Deep State. In this video statement, Fitton reviews the many examples of how Trump’s appointees and their agencies have defended and protected those who are guilty of extreme corruption during the Obama Administration, including Hillary Clinton.[The sound is a bit low. but the information is excellent.] -GEG

Video summary by JW Williams:

Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch says that Special Counsel Robert Mueller is setting up his own Justice Department to try to throw Trump in jail. He revealed that Mueller’s team raided the home of Paul Manafort, Trump’s former campaign manager, with guns drawn.  He is harassing Trump’s administration for documents related to firing former staff members.

Fitton says that the Mueller investigation is not proper, according to the Constitution, because he can only be fired for cause, he has not been confirmed by the Senate, and he is not under the supervision of someone who is confirmed. Rod Rosenstein appointed Mueller, but now he has been interviewed as a witness in the case.

Mueller interviewed with Trump for the FBI director job, to replace Comey, creating yet another conflict-of-interest.

Comey took unauthorized documents from the FBI and leaked them in order to get a Special Counsel investigation against Trump. Congress, the Department of Justice and the media are silent and seem to be protecting Hillary Clinton. The deep state is also protecting Obama, and they refuse to release FBI investigation reports about his alleged involvement in selling his Senate seat after he was elected president. The State Department refuses to release documents on Benghazi and the IRA refuses to release documents on scrutiny of conservative organizations under Trump.

His appointees are either incompetent, insubordinate or hostile to the idea of transparency and rule of law. The deep state wants Judicial Watch to wait until 2020 to get Hillary’s emails. Susan Rice admitted unmasking Trump associates after she originally denied doing it.

Judicial Watch has filed dozens of lawsuits against the Trump administration to get access to information. There is massive obstruction by the deep state on the Russia case. Republican congressmen are allowing Mueller run wild as they don’t want the responsibility of investigating the Russia allegations.

Fitton says that the public needs to pressure Trump and let him know that we want him to get rid of his corrupt appointees.

London: Catholic Church Hosts Satanic Fashion Show

St. Andrew’s Catholic Church in London allowed Turkish designer, Dilara Findikoglu, to use the sanctuary for a Satanic theme fashion show during London’s Fashion Week.  The show’s models wore outfits resembling vampires and demons. Some had symbols painted on their faces.  Violet Chachki, a drag-queen model, was dressed in a red devil outfit, with his hair shaped to look like demonic horns. -GEG

Turkish designer Dilara Findikoglu’s presented her Spring/Summer 2018 collection at London Fashion Week and it was nothing less than a satanic Black Mass. Indeed, the event took place at the altar of St Andrew Church in London and incorporated heavy occult and satanic symbolism. In short, the event summed up everything the fashion world is truly about.

 While Dilara Findikoglu is said to an “up-and-coming rebel of the fashion world”, she’s perfectly in line with the industry’s philosophy. She’s not rebelling at all, she’s doing what exactly the type of stuff “they” want her to do.

For this reason, celebrities such as Rihanna, FKA Twigs, and Grimes wear seen wearing Findikoglu’s creations.

Her latest fashion show featured artist Brooke Candy (her videos are full of MK imagery) and drag artist Violet Chachki.

The backdrop is basically a mish-mash of Masonic-inspired imagery. On each side are the Masonic twin pillars. Between the pillars is the letter G inside an inverted pentagram. Underneath it is the all-seeing eye inside a hexagram. There is also the Masonic square and compass in there. To top it off, the runway was a checkerboard pattern. Here’s a classic Masonic painting for comparison.
