Washington Deceivingly Attempts To Reform A System That Thrives Upon Decades Of Failure

Washington Deceivingly Attempts To Reform A System That Thrives Upon Decades Of Failure

Just stop and think for one minute.  Do you actually think Washington wants to effectively reform a system that has made money for its cronies for decades?

Are you willing to consider that the system is designed to be ineffective and that Washington's cronies profit from that ineffectiveness?

Here is how it works.  Create profitable, elitist trade polices (NAFTA/CAFTA) that exacerbate poverty and disparities in wealth in the undocumenteds' home countries.  Maintain ineffective border and interior enforcement agencies that are never given the resources to effectively get the job done.  Witness crony corporations illegally hire the undocumented laborers knowing that the chances of said corporate cronies getting caught are slim.  Why do you think E-verify and similar systems dating back to Reagan's 1986 Amnesty have not and never will be mandatory? 

Have the undocumenteds' home country elite's economies become dependent upon billions of  dollars in remittances being sent home annualy.  Have the economic elite - in the US (and Mexico for example) share 1.25 billion dollars a day in NAFTA cross border trade while the disparity in wealth in both countries continues to climb to unprecedented levels.

Create border and interior enforcement agencies that employ tens of thousands of Americans while annually costing US taxpayers billions to fund.   Never admit that a continuing influx of undocumented and illegal drugs are necessary components for those agencies (and their privatized cronies) to thrive.  

This is oh so hauntingly similar to perpetual wars and the US Military Industrial Complex.

Create a political narrative that does not address our own government's responsibility for exacerbating the very illegal immigration that Washington claims to want to reform.

Do you know about and/or remember "our" 40+ year long war on drugs?  For over 40 years billions of US tax dollars have been pumped down that "border security" black hole too.  The results of  Washington's drug and immigration "wars"?  Illegal drugs and undocumented people somehow keep increasing while Washington keeps asking for more money to "solve" both problems.

If you really study both topics you will discover that Washington has no real intention of killing the golden goose that keeps laying those golden drug and labor infused eggs.

Washington's real immigration reform?   Continue the insidiously deceiving narrative that "immigration is broken".  Meanwhile continue to hide the truth. 

It ain't really broke and we don't intend to effectively ever fix it.  There is simply too much money being made maintaining the failed status quo.

The Majority Of Americans Believe Washington's Fallacious Illegal Immigration Narrative

The Majority Of Americans Believe Washington's Fallacious Illegal Immigration Narrative

https://www.google.com/#q=define+fallacious

fal·la·cious

adjective

adjective: fallacious
1.based on a mistaken belief.

"fallacious arguments"

synonyms:
...

erroneous, false, untrue, wrong, incorrect, flawed, inaccurate, mistaken, misinformed, misguided;

specious, spurious, bogus, fictitious, fabricated, made up; groundless, unfounded, ill-founded, unproven, unsupported, uncorroborated; informal, phony, full of holes

"we almost printed his fallacious information"

Washington's own NAFTA and CAFTA trade agreements with the undocumenteds' home country elite exacerbate poverty in those home countries and push/pull the undocumented into the US.
 
US corporations - despite immigration laws preventing the hiring of the undocumented - use undocumented laborers for their own selfish needs. Billions of dollars in remittances - annually sent back to the undocumenteds' home countries- benefit said elite's home country economies .

Beyond the insidious labor for remittance trade-off, Washington's "border security" cronies make billions of US tax dollars in their feeble attempts to control border and interior illegal immigration.

Washington's bogus narrative about illegal immigration is not unlike their 40+ year long, failed "war on drugs" fantasy.

Create a problem and then create laws to "fix" the problem. Then simultaneously reap profits from the "legal" enforcement industries and never-ending ineffectiveness of those same enforcement industries.

Of course political careers are continuously "made or broken" by this scam.

Meanwhile the causal factors of illegal immigration - trade policies that create poverty, illegal immigration and benefit the US and undocumented's home country elite - are buried beneath Washington's fallacious illegal immigration and immigration reform narratives.

Sadly these causal factors of illegal immigration never reach the immigration "radar screens" of the minds of the majority of American's .

What Does Washington Have In Common With Illegal Immigration?

In response:  http://www.politico.com/story/2014/08/poll-government-satisfaction-109972.html?hp=r3

What Does Washington Have In Common With Illegal Immigration? 

Both created by the rich in order to use and abuse common people - not only in the US but the undocumenteds' home countries too.

One created for the insidious abuse of millions of laborers and their remittances;  the other created for the abuse of billions of US tax dollars fraudulently used to prevent the first.

What Came First? The Chicken (bomb) Or The (Jihadist) Egg?

In response:  http://www.npr.org/blogs/thetwo-way/2014/08/10/339299812/netanyahu-says-hes-prepared-for-protracted-conflict-in-gaza

What Came First?  The Chicken (bomb) Or The (Jihadist) Egg?

Who said:  Live By The Sword, Die By The Sword?

Netanyahu and his right wing, Zionist, Militant-extremist supporters will not stop until "mowing the lawn" turns into rototilling all Palestinians into the earth.

Do You Trust Washington's And Israel's Narratives About Gaza And Palestine?

In response  http://www.huffingtonpost.com/theworldpost/

Do You Trust Washington's And Israel's Narratives About Gaza And Palestine?

I am ashamed of many Americans who simply buy into US and Israeli narratives about Gaza and Palestine without researching any history of Palestine after WWII.

This crisis is much more complex than "Hamas terrorists" firing rockets into Israel and Israel having the "right to defend itself".  And if that is your only understanding of the situation and you base your narratives upon a limited understanding, I dare say you are part of this decades-old problem and have nothing to offer as a real solution.

Questions: 

Do you know when the state of Israel was created by the UN?
Do you know who received the majority of the Palestinian's land via that UN decision?
Do you know how many Palestinians were forced to leave their homes with the Israeli government's still unfulfilled promise that those Palestinians would have the right to return?
Do you know how much Palestinian land was taken after the UN decision and subsequent wars?
Do you know about illegal Jewish settlements in Palestine?
Do you know about the Israeli blockade of Gaza?
Do you know that Gazans rely upon tunnels from Egypt for ordinary necessities of life (denied by Israel's blockade)?
Do you know that Israel controls Gaza's water and medical supplies?
Do you know that Israel has and is illegally using 100 ton white phosphorous, DIME and flechette bombs?
Do you know that Israel flies drones over Gaza 24/7 in war time and not?
Do you know that the US gives Israel 3 billion in aide every year, and much of that is military aide that requires that Israel by US made weapons?
Do you know what the Zionist military term "mow the lawn" means?
Do you know that it is the militant, right-wing Zionist's goal to annihilate Palestinians?

I ask you to listen to the story of Miko Peled who grew up in Jerusalem and whose father was an Israeli general.  Included in Mr. Peled's story is the death of his niece by teenage Palestinian suicide bombers.

Take sometime to educate yourselves.  Unfortunately Washington's narrative about Israel, not unlike its narrative about health care, The Iraq War, The Drug War, Illegal Immigration, The Great Recession of 2008, etc., is predominately false and self-serving for hawks worldwide.

Here is another point of view you might consider:

Disgraceful Inhuman Ignorance Of Israel's Ethnic Cleansing Of Palestine

In response: 
http://www.npr.org/blogs/thetwo-way/2014/08/06/338265445/gaza-conflict-cease-fire-holds-as-kerry-calls-for-fresh-peace-talks?uidt=1407346295#commentBlock

Disgraceful Inhuman Ignorance Of Israel's Ethnic Cleansing Of  Palestine

Each time Israel's Zionists decide to "mow the lawn" it gets covered with more rubble and toxic dust from Israeli 100 ton white phosphorus bombs.  This is of course designed to make it harder for the Palestinian "lawn" to grow, recover, revive and prosper. 

Nothing can grow without water and nutrition - both of which Israel effectively controls in Palestine. 

And look at the readers' posts - mostly ignorant American exceptionalists who rave about Israel's removal of the Hamas "weeds" in Palestine.  "Weeds" originally planted and nurtured by the very Zionists who continue to use them as an excuse to insidiously remove all indigenous Palestinian "blades of grass".    

Shame on you all for your typical inhuman ignorance to this ethnic cleansing of  Palestinians by Zionists.

Death (To Palestine) By One Thousand Cuts (AKA Israel's Mowing's Of Palestine's Lawn)

In Response: http://www.politico.com/story/2014/08/poll-israel-justified-hamas-gaza-palestine-109717.html?hp=l4

Death (To Palestine) By One Thousand Cuts (AKA Israel's Mowing's Of Palestine's Lawn)

Israel has known about Hamas' rockets and tunnels in Gaza for years. Israel drones watch everything, 24-7. Their intelligence apparatus knows what is taking place in Gaza 24/7.

Netanyahu simply waits. He lets the rocket stockpile build up. Then just like clockwork an atrocity miraculously occurs that starts the predominately ineffective Hamas rockets flying.

Salivating at the mouth Netanyahu now has an excuse to "lower the boom" and "mow the lawn".
Each time the lawn is mowed shorter and shorter. Each time it never quite comes back the way it was.

Meanwhile Washington touts that Israel has the right to defend it self despite the hundreds of kids who are killed.

Please listen to Ralph Nader's one hour talk on Gaza.
