Canada Turns Away Obama’s Terrorist Pal, Bill Ayers

Mike Opelka, The Blaze

Bill Ayers is a proud radical. Mr. Ayers admits to co-founding the Weather Underground, a group whose members set off bombs at banks, the home of a judge, the Pentagon and the U.S. Capitol building during the 1960s. In order to avoid arrest, Ayers and several of his fellow “Weathermen” had to live in hiding for over a decade. He surfaced in the 1980s with companion (and the mother of his children) Bernadine Dohrn.

Oddly enough, it was on September 11, 2001, the New York Times printed a story about Bill Ayers, quoting him about the bombings that his group orchestrated:

”I don’t regret setting bombs,” Bill Ayers said. ”I feel we didn’t do enough.”

Is it any wonder that Canada has turned Ayers away for the third time in recent years?

For the record, Ayers was slated to deliver the keynote address to the Worldview Conference on Media and Higher Education.

The 20-year Sellout of the American Worker

Tom Gibson,

Most nations try to avoid running trade deficits because those that do lose jobs.

Why, then, for the last 20 years has the United States run a persistent, growing deficit that has destroyed more than 9 million jobs?

The story begins when President Bill Clinton, promising expanding markets and more jobs, pushed our country into the North American Free Trade Agreement in 1992 and the World Trade Organization in 1995.

After that, the power to make decisions on trade and employment began to shift dramatically to the multinational companies and to our political leaders in Washington whose influence they were able to buy.

The primary interest of the multinationals is in the success of their own enterprises rather than that of a particular country, even their host country.

So because NAFTA and the WTO abolished U.S. trade laws and tariffs that had been put in place over the years to insure we didn’t import more than we exported, the multinationals were free to begin their long and steady effort to move their manufacturing to the countries with the lowest wages.

The great “sucking” sound, predicted by Ross Perot in his attack on NAFTA during the 1992 presidential campaign, began to be heard across our country as factories were abandoned and jobs sucked out….

Irish Need Not Apply — for U.S. Visas

Tom Purcell,

Well, this takes the Irish cake.

The Irish “need not apply” in America all over again.

Ireland, you see, is not doing so well.

Prior to the global economic meltdown, its service industry soared as global companies took advantage of its well-educated, English-speaking citizens.

Emboldened by its good fortune, the Irish government, and many of its citizens, carried on like Americans. They overborrowed and overspent.

A housing bubble formed and burst spectacularly.

Now Ireland’s unemployment rate is 13.5 percent. The high-paying service jobs have disappeared.

And lots of well-educated Irish folks are fleeing their motherland yet again.

But they’re not heading to America this time.

U.S.-Mexico Border Vanishes Under Obama Program

Jerome Corsi,

U.S. borders with Mexico and Canada simply have been erased under a program run by the U.S. Customs and Border Patrol that issues The Trusted Traveler of North America cards.

Instead of a representation of the United States, the cards issued by the agency under Barack Obama’s leadership carry a logo that depicts North America as a continent, without borders to identify the United States.

WND previously reported that on Nov. 30, 2010, Department of Homeland Security Secretary Napolitano and Mexican Ministry of the Interior Secretary José Francisco Blake Mora signed an agreement expressing their intent to develop a global entry international trusted traveler pilot program between the United States and Mexico.

Mexican officials believe it would allow 84 million Mexicans to apply for Trusted Traveler of North America biometric border pass cards for rapid entry into the United States.

Trusted Traveler logo displays North America

But on the CBP website that instructs applicants how to obtain a Trusted Traveler of North America biometric card, a generic sample of the card is presented, complete with the logo of North America in the upper right hand corner.
