Thou shalt not steal – or…?

Obamacare brought two circuits to a crossroads of the Constitution

Not a day goes by without someone asking why politicians of the two major parties cannot lay aside their different affiliations and “work together for the good of the country.” But anyone who must ask that question, might never understand why that is impossible, and probably just as well. Because the problem involves the kind of society we want to build and live in. In blunt fact, the members of one side want to steal from some for the unpaid benefit of others. And until they abandon this desire for organized stealing and covetousness, America will not have harmony in politics.

NAFTA complicity with aliens

Most Americans have ignored a big player in the “immigration crisis” on America’s southern border. But today Jerome R. Corsi at WND reminded his readers of that player. The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) has done as much as, or more than, the de facto President in bringing illegal aliens by the trainload – literally – to American soil. And lately the American company that means “NAFTA Railroad” now faces criminal charges – in Mexico.

NAFTA Railroad facing human rights charges

Corsi cites this Associated Press report from more than three months ago:

Luis Angel Bravo, the attorney general of the Gulf coast state of Veracruz, said he filed a complaint with federal prosecutors against Ferrosur, a Mexican rail line, and a subsidiary of the U.S. railway Kansas City Southern.

The Kansas City Southern Railroad owns Ferrosur completely. This article gives the details:

On April 1, 2005, KCS completed the acquisition of Mexican Railroad TFM, S.A. de C.V., an acquisition which gained for KCS all the common stock of Groupo Transportacion Ferrovaria Mexicana, S.A. de C.V., the holding company that owned TFM. In December 2005, KCS changed the name of TFM to Kansas City Southern de Mexico (KCSM). The acquisition of KCSM was a key piece in putting together the “NAFTA railroad,” the marketing brand that KCS uses to market its North American service for both KCSM in Mexico and Kansas City Southern Railroad (KCSR) in the United States.

The NAFA Railroad, Corsi called it. And in another article he concentrated on one purpose of it: to bring goods into America by landing them in Mexican ports and putting them on these Mexican trains that the Kansas City Southern Railroad now owned. And who would run those ports? The China Ocean Shipping Company. A government enterprise. And which government? The People’s Republic of China.

Two years later, everything was running swimmingly, or so said USA Today. But no one paid attention to the other activity to benefit from rail travel: immigration.

The NAFTA Railroad, showing how to use it to get to America.

This map from the Jesuit Mexican Migrant Service illustrates the main cargo train lines and stops. The pink line is the far shortest route to the U.S. border, which explains why south Texas has seen the vast majority of Central American migrant arrivals. From: Jesuit Mexican Migrant Service, quoted by the Washington Office of Latin America.

The Washington Office of Latin America (WOLA) calls attention to the Mexico-Guatemala border: “Mexico’s Other Border.” They carry this link to the Jesuit Mexican Migrant Service. The latter has maps clearly showing anyone who wants to know, what trains to take to the United States. So what happens? All those unaccompanied minors, mothers with children in tow, young toughs, and so on, hop one particular train more than any other. The train starts in Lechería and stops in Nuevo Laredo or Reynosa, depending on which branch line it takes. Those doing the train hopping, and everyone else who knows about it, call it La Bestia – The Beast. Those who hop it risk having others rob, kidnap, extort money from, or kill them, or traffic them into America as sexual slaves.

And now the Attorney General of Vera Cruz has filed a criminal complaint against the owner-operators of La Bestia. Which means the Kansas City Southern Railroad.

KCSR hoist by their own blasting charge

Whoever sends the e-mail notices of new articles in WND seems to think this is a joke. They suggest the Vera Cruz AG shouldn’t blame Americans for what goes on aboard a train they indirectly own and run.

The facts suggest the AG of Vera Cruz should blame the KCSR, builders of the NAFTA Railroad, for what goes on aboard that train. They own La Bestia, because they own a company called Kansas City Southern de Mexico. They bought it out. They gave it that name.

They thought they would bring in cheap goods, the products of cheap labor. Surely they looked the other way when illegal immigrants hopped their NAFTA train. How long have the robberies, the trafficking, the kidnappings, the murders, and the extortions been going on? Maybe the trial will find that out.

And it gets worse. The AG says the railroad employees aid and abet these crimes.

True enough, in America a person, or a company, is innocent until proved guilty. And perhaps the Mexican criminal courts are dubious forums. But those who promoted NAFTA, and especially the Kansas City Southern Railroad, knew that from the beginning.

The real story isn’t about an American company facing prosecution for something another company it owns, either let happen or helped happen. The story is the role NAFTA played in setting up the current crisis. Without that “NAFTA Railroad” buy, La Bestia would not run, and those aliens would have no train to hop. And if an American company wants to hop in bed with scorpions, don’t let it complain about the stings. Especially when said company aids and abets the breaking of American laws.

Corrupt politicians

The gavel: a symbol of justice and punishment for corrupt officials.

Oftentimes in America, it seems as if there is no light at the end of the tunnel concerning national affairs. In particular, America is inundated with the crimes of those who represent and serve “We the People,” and often the American people are under the impression that criminal representatives suffer no consequence. Also, the American people are used to the state-run media magnifying the crimes committed by these representatives, and not magnifying the Laws against their actions, Laws that establish righteousness and peace.

I continue to wrestle with the Gallup Poll reporti regarding the most liberal and the most conservative states in the Union. The poll stated that after the 2012 presidential election, the nation was 38% conservative as opposed to 23% liberal with the balance attributed mostly to moderates. The breakdown in New Jersey, notorious for being “blue” and #9 on Gallup’s 10 most liberal states list, is more than interesting. According to Gallup, the Garden State is 27.1% liberal and 37.6% moderate, which leaves 35.3% of the state conservative. The stats for Massachusetts, another notorious blue state and number 3 on Gallup’s most liberal list, is 38.1% moderate, 30.2% liberal and 31.7% conservative. The poll stats for these two states indicate that the liberals with their lower percentage rates dominate the conservatives. In other words, the minority is dominating the majority.

Jews not like Muslims

How should Israel feel about trusting Putin's Bitch?

Lorna Salzman, author of “Jews Behaving Like Muslims,” featured in the New English Review, claims “Zionists and observant Jews” complain like Muslims regarding The Death of Klinghoffer, an “opera” to be produced at the Met. Salzman, evidently an anti-Zionist and self-hating Jew, disregarded the spirit of the complaints. Rather, she uses moral relativism (trickery) to equate disparate events and reactions, villains with victims. The two cultures are disparate. (Observant) Jews don’t behave like Muslims.

Problems small and large

The problems of taxation and immigration are really the problem of taxation and government giving away free lunch.

Politicians make the news today, talking about problems they say are big problems. In fact, they are small problems, and symptoms of much larger problems. Until the people embrace a solution to the larger problems, even the smaller problems will stay insoluble.

The Daily Iowan Editorial Board appears to have fallen prey to some very dangerous rhetoric – as though influenced by an un-American entity. Rather than provide an overview or opinion, their editorial presents a plethora of deceitful statements in defense of Islamic sharia law – preaching that it is compatible with religious liberty.

God, if you are there, strike me dead!

– Italian dictator Benito Mussolini

Many years later God did accommodate when the tyrant Mussolini and his mistress were condemned to death. Mussolini said, “Let me save my life and I will give you an empire!” then began shouting “No, No.” They were both executed along with main members of his cabinet on April 29, 1945. Their bodies were savagely beaten then hung upside down at an Esso gas station in the Plazzale Loreto in Milan.

Global warming: scam or real?

A global warming conference took place in Copenhagen, and the conferees didn't think to get around as these people do.

De facto President Barack Obama keeps peddling the Global Warming narrative. Of course he would. Global Warming appeals to every “dream from his father” he ever had. If the globe is warming, he has the perfect excuse to do everything his father (whoever he was) dreamed of: taking America down a peg, and de-industrializing the world. So we should examine whether global warming is real – and why its proponents act like scam artists, with no idea what they’re talking about.

In his recent talks with Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieta, the man now occupying our White House failed to discuss the return of Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi. Sgt. Tahmooressi mistakenly entered Mexico with firearms that were registered in the USA. When he voluntarily informed the Mexican border control that he made a mistake by entering their country and had firearms on him, he was thrown in jail, where he was beaten and served dinners consisting of bread and sugar water.
