California Imports Foreign Workers to Process Unemployment Claims

March 2, 2015


It isn’t just construction workers losing their jobs to illegal aliens from Mexico who are getting shafted by the massive influx of cheap foreign workers from the Third World. Supposedly foreigners are needed to get the work done, despite a real unemployment rate that dwarfs the official rate. Meanwhile, California is importing foreigners to process unemployment claims:

It’s nearly 8 p.m., and inside a state office building two dozen computer experts design and troubleshoot a system that will take and process millions of unemployment claims each year.

It’s a $200 million Employment Development Department project, but with the exception of two managers, everyone inside the office is from outside of the U.S. They are employed by Deloitte, a major U.S. IT company hired by the state to create and manage its Unemployment Insurance Modernization project. The mostly Indian nationals are allowed to work here under a visa program called H-1B.

American IT workers tend to be more experienced, but they also tend to be more expensive. So they are laid off in favor of foreigners, who then process their unemployment claims.
 

Boy Makes “Obama Doesn’t Love America” Video, Then The SPEECH NAZIS SHOW UP

March 2, 2015


Remember that kid who uploaded that viral YouTube video and said that Obama doesn’t love America? Well, looks like the free speech nazi’s can’t handle free speech from a 12-year old kid.

On Friday, C.J. Pearson, a 12-year-old conservative from Georgia who posted a viral video supporting Rudy Giuliani, discovered that his personal Facebook page was locked. In an exclusive interview with Examiner.com on Saturday, Pearson said he received a message from someone about 6 a.m. Friday. That’s when he learned his account and page had been locked for “suspicious activity.”

He jumped through all of Facebook’s hoops, but wasn’t able to recover his account. So he created a new profile to take its place. His public page was not affected, he said, however, he can no longer administer the page. Fortunately, he said, a friend is helping post links to that page.

As is so often the case in these situations, Facebook did not respond to his requests for help. Nor would they tell him what the alleged suspicious activity was.



 

JIHAD AGAINST #TWITTER: ISIS targets Twitter Founder and Employees

March 2, 2015


Even though ISIS uses Twitter to recruit and spread propaganda, they’re going after its founder and their employees.

Islamic State militants have reportedly urged their followers to target Twitter founder Jack Dorsey and employees of the social media platform because of its efforts to rein in jihadi propaganda posts.

In an online post Sunday, the militant group, which took hostage hundreds of Assyrian Christians after seizing a host of villages in northeastern Syria last week, called on its supporters to kill Dorsey and other Twitter staffers for blocking jihadist social media accounts and macabre execution-video tweets,BuzzFeed News reported.

“You started this failed war,” says the Islamic State post, which also includes a picture of Dorsey in crosshairs, according to a translation cited by BuzzFeed. “We told you from the beginning it’s not your war, but you didn’t get it and kept closing our accounts on Twitter, but we always come back.”

Teacher says Jihadi John had anger issues at school but was a 'lovely, lovely boy'

March 1, 2015


No, a radical Muslim had anger issues? You don’t say.

Jihadi John, a masked Islamic State terrorist seen in gruesome videos of beheadings of Western hostages, received anger management therapy in his first year of secondary school in the UK after getting into fights.

Mohammed Emwazi, who has been seen in beheading videos of Western hostages, attended Quintin Kynaston school in Queens Park, north west London, a decade ago.

His former teacher said Emwazi needed help controlling his emotions but he was regarded as a “success story” after the therapy, she added.

Emwazi was unveiled as a Kuwaiti-born British man in his mid-20s leading to criticism of UK security services for being aware of him but not preventing him from joining Islamic State.

“We’d find that he’d get very angry and worked up and it would take him a long time to calm himself down, so we did a lot of work as a school to help him with his anger and to control his emotions,” the teacher was quoted as saying by BBC.



 

China’s Space Weapons Threaten U.S. Satellites

February 28, 2015


China is developing significant space warfare capabilities that threaten U.S. strategic satellite systems, the commander of the U.S. Strategic Command told Congress on Thursday.

“We’ve seen very disturbing trends in space, particularly from nation states like China, as well as Russia, who have been public about their counterspace endeavors and ambitions,” Adm. Cecil Haney, Stratcom commander said. Counterspace is the military term for space warfare capabilities and weapons.

China conducted a test of a missile-fired anti-satellite kill vehicle as recently as last summer, Haney told the House Armed Services strategic forces subcommittee.

“Fortunately this time it didn’t hit anything as it did in 2007, creating just thousands and thousands of pieces of debris which we’re still struggling with,” Haney said, adding that the recent test indicated China’s intention to invest heavily in what he said is a “not very transparent” space arms program.

“Additionally, we see things that … have also been put in orbit that also is of concern, as well as things on land that are also being used to threaten our assets, such as lasers, such as jamming capability and what have you that threatens communications, GPS,” the four-star admiral said.

China’s test of an antisatellite (ASAT) missile in July was disguised by the Chinese government as a ballistic missile defense test. In the past several years, China also conducted space tests using miniature satellites, some with retractable arms capable of grabbing or crushing satellites. Little is known of China’s ground-based laser and jamming ASAT capabilities.



 

Vandalism in Arizona Shut Down Internet, Cellphone, Telephone Service Across State

February 28, 2015


Incident raises concerns a domestic or international terrorist could tamper with U.S. infrastructure

Cellphone, Internet, and telephone services across half of Arizona went dark on Wednesday after vandals sliced a sensitive fiber optic cable, according to those familiar with the situation. The incident is raising concerns about the safety of U.S. infrastructure.

The outage shut down critical services across large parts of the state, preventing individuals from using their phones, bank and ATM cards, and the Internet. Critical services, such as police and state government databases, as well as banks and hospitals, also were affected as a result of the vandalism.

The services first went dead around noon MST on Wednesday, causing complete service interruptions across half the state, from Phoenix to such northern cities as Sedona, Prescott, and Cotton Wood, according to an official from CenturyLink, the Louisiana-based communications company that owns the severed line.

“There was a vandalism that took place on a fiber optic cable that basically runs from Phoenix to Northern Arizona,” said Alex Juarez, a spokesman for CenturyLink in Arizona.

The line, which is composed of extremely thick cable, appeared to have been cut with a hacksaw, according to Juarez. Phoenix police are currently investigating the incident and say they have yet to determine a motivation for the crime.



 

Obama Brags About Power Grab While Americans Debate Color of a Dress

February 28, 2015


While the Obama administration celebrates its latest power grab, the federal takeover of the Internet and the ATF’s unlawful ammo ban, Americans are debating the color of a woman’s dress which went viral over social media.

On Thursday, the Federal Communications Commission voted to declare the Internet a “public utility,” opening the door for feds to regulate on-line speech, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms announced its plan to illegally ban M855 AR-15 ammunition, and Americans are outraged – because they couldn’t decide if a dress posted on Tumblr was black and blue or white and gold.

“This is very important guys,” Alison Lynch for Metro wrote. “Are you Team Blue and Black or Team White and Gold? You need to pick a side.”

“Kimye, Justin Bieber and Taylor Swift already have.”

The news tracking web site Viral News Chart revealed that at the time of this writing, the top two “political” news articles in the past 12 hours were both about the dress, with the ammo ban coming in third.



 

Housing for 15 Alternative Sexualities Is OK, but Men-Only Fraternities Are Not, Wesleyan University Says

February 27, 2015


Campus housing specifically for 15 alternative sexualities, including sadomasochists, is acceptable, but fraternities that just allow men are not, at Wesleyan University.

Wesleyan University housing has an option for students who want to live with others identifying with one of 15 categories — LGBTTQQFAGPBDSM. The university's inclusiveness excludes, however, male-only fraternities.

Delta Kappa Epsilon sued Wesleyan University after the liberal arts college ordered all of its fraternities to admit women, charging sexual discrimination and false and deceptive practices.

Wesleyan, a Connecticut college, was founded by the Methodist Episcopal Church and named after 18th century evangelical theologian John Wesley, but is now secular.

According to the suit, Wesleyan offers a range of housing options for it undergraduates (who are required to reside on campus), including, Women of Color House, Womanist House, Malcolm X House, Lighthouse (for "open-minded" Christians), and houses specifically for Latinos and Asians.

One of those housing options is called "Open House," which is for LGBTTQQFAGPBDSM individuals, according to Wesleyan's Office of Residential Life. The 15 letters stand for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, transsexual, queer, questioning, flexual, asexual, genderf***, polyamourous, bondage/disciple, dominance/submission, and sadism/masochism, in that order.



The suit points out that male-only and female-only housing is available in the school's residence halls. The Wesleyan website also touts the school's "diversity of housing options."

The suit complains that the school is not fulfilling its stated goals of diversity and inclusiveness, and is violating its opposition to sex discrimination, by eliminating male-only fraternities as a housing option.

The move to make fraternities accept women was in response to concerns about campus rape. A group of faculty and students argued last Spring that frat parties encourage sexual assault by men against women. The solution was to place more women in fraternities. In an open letter the group called for requiring the school's three all-male fraternities to "drastically reform" and admit women.

The letter stated: "Because fraternities are male-exclusive and the possessors of some of our campus' largest party spaces, they explicitly and implicitly cultivate a gender-based power dynamic that privileges men, the hosts, over women, who are among the guests. This power dynamic engenders sexual assault because women are institutionally encouraged to 'repay' men for their hospitality, often with sex, and men are institutionally provided with a control over their guests, especially women."

Even though fraternities are thought to be a dangerous place for women, the letter states that placing women in fraternities will make them safer by eliminating "the gender-based power dynamics by which sexual assault is promoted within fraternities."
