North Carolina Newspapers Go Wild For Gheen!

NC Newspapers Go Wild For Gheen!
(Making Illegal Alien Supporters Scream)

July 31, 2008

by William Gheen
President of Americans for Legal Immigration PAC (ALIPAC)

My success, and that of our organization ALIPAC, is now reaching new levels in the fight against illegal immigration, especially in my home state of North Carolina! Our accomplishments are documented by the fact I’ve recently become the favorite political bad boy of the illegal alien supporting print media in my state!

You know you are doing something right, when the old guard print media in your home state goes into rabid attack mode and starts taking their lies to a new level of exposure and vulnerability. With this level of attention from these tabloid writers, I’m starting to feel like the Rodney Dangerfield of NC Politics!

It appears that some of the most staunch supporters of illegal immigration in the NC press are feeling highly threatened by ALIPAC’s operations, and my efforts, otherwise we would not be seeing this cacophony of mudslinging.

Mary Schulken of the Charlotte Observer tries to convince readers that I am like the charismatic, yet fictional Hollywood villain “Bill the Butcher” from the movie Gangs of New York. Kristin Collins of the Raleigh News and Observer wrote another highly biased article with just me versus five of my opponents, to assert that somehow I am associated with mysterious letters to Hispanic leaders that threaten death, dismemberment, and bombings! Of course the opposition leaders are reporting this to the reporter, without providing any evidence, instead of filing any police reports. And of course, there’s not a shred of evidence that I have anything to do with these alleged threats, but hey all is fair in love, war, and politics right?

Today, one of the biggest rats on the sinking ships weighed in with an attack. Scott Mooneyham, who claims he is a member of a group called the ‘Capital Press Association’, is spewing his vitriol at me claiming that ALIPAC is nothing for anyone to worry about in the upcoming elections.

Scott Mooneyham’s hit piece contains nine heavily distorted or blatantly false statements dressed up as facts in his four paragraph hit piece!

Nine lies in such a small space! I’m flattered. So far, only one newspaper has run his propaganda piece and I’m a little disappointed that more did not pick up the editorial, so we could smear more of the cracked eggs that Mooneyham has served up on their faces. Will publishers be more wary of Mooneyham’s writings in the future after this?

Scott Mooneyham has affixed his baleful glare on my progress for many years. He has been holding his tongue fighting the temptation to attack me in the open, fearful of the added credibility I would gain from such an effort.

But a great sense of calm has come to me today and has me grinning ear to ear. There are three reasons I’m happy to see these unsubstantiated attacks raining down from the ivory towers.

First, these liars who work for the opposition tabloids would not go to such great lengths and efforts, or put their character shortcomings on display on this scale, if they did not feel threatened by our strength and accomplishments in the battle for immigration enforcement. Each writer is going after me personally or with some set of details outside of the illegal immigration issue. It’s the only option they have because they are afraid to challenge me on the issue because they now know my stances are favored by a large majority of their readers.

Two, we are winning! As a seasoned campaign professional, I know the rules on negative attacks. The candidate or group that is in the lead does not resort to negative attacks on their opponent because they are in the lead. Launching negative attacks on your opponents, instead of addressing the issues, is a sign of a losing campaign which trails behind the leader.

Three, from my extensive personal experience of bringing down entrenched corrupt political status quos in the past, this kind of screaming is a sign of the end for my adversaries.

In battles where this kind of wild and desperate screaming did not emanate from my opposition, we usually lost, but in cases where it did, it was a sign of their impending collapse.

For Mary Schulken, Kristen Collins, and Scott Mooneyham, to play these cards it means that they are finally seeing the writing on the wall. The telltale hearts of their past misdeeds, bias, censorship, and slaughter of the truth is coming back to haunt them in Shakespearian fashion.

While I could easily respect these tabloid writers for having a different opinion than me on immigration, and I could even respect that only a small segment of the population shares their views, I cannot respect their willingness to lie to the public. I cannot respect their refusal to report crimes, when the culprits are illegal aliens caught murdering, gang raping, and assaulting our innocent citizens.

They are exposing themselves as anathemas to real journalism because they are more concerned about influencing the opinions of readers than reporting the facts.

Their guilty consciences are showing and manifesting in their personal attacks on me.

I’m the one trying to save lives and they are the ones supporting inaction and policies that are resulting in preventable deaths and suffering.

Most importantly, the thing that I believe is really setting these fiction writers on the warpath is that they are finally starting to realize that their monopoly on information flow has been broken.

They fear the fact that I’ve been on seven talk radio shows, in this state on a regular basis, warning listeners about the bias and censorship we face in the papers. They have lost control of political debates when they see me on Fox, CNN, MSNBC, or CBS, as well as many local TV stations expressing my opinions to the public about illegal immigration.

My direct contact and sizable support from NC Lawmakers drives them even futher up the wall. To my knowledge, they have never faced organized resistance to their radical and unpopular politics, with this level of sophistication before.

I have described many of these papers as dinosaurs breathing their last gasps of comet dust, soon to expire because they cannot compete in the more egalitarian and populist new media.

I’m more of a messenger in this equation than a leader, and they certainly want to shoot the messenger because my words burn their eyes and ears. I speak for voices they want silenced!

I’m smiling today because one of my top motivations for creating ALIPAC was to bypass their information hegemony in this state.

The fact that they have finally drawn their mighty pens, dripping poisonous ink, against me is a testament to my growing notoriety and influence. My abilities to confront them come from two sources. The people who support me and my goals empower me, and I invite the Lord to dwell within my heart, as much as possible.

After all, if these people did their jobs right there would be no concealed information for me to share with the public, and state policies could be crafted in an atmosphere of truth and clarity. I am meeting the demands they have neglected.

The chickens are coming home to roost in North Carolina, and I am but the first bird of the morning breaking the silence of the night to greet the glow of the approaching sunrise in the Eastern sky.

Let’s all raise our voices in a chorus for the new dawn of truth, which will send these shrieking unclean and hateful birds back into the political darkness where they belong.

Soon, NC Lawmakers and real reporters across the state will read this response, as well as, hundreds of thousands of online readers, but most importantly this will be read by Mary Schulken, Kristen Collins, and Scott Mooneyham several times over.

William Gheen is a veteran campaign consultant working professionally for over 44 Republican and Democratic campaigns in North Carolina. He also serves as President of ALIPAC or Americans for Legal Immigration PAC, which is one of the largest organizations in America fighting against Amnesty and illegal immigration. William Gheen is the host of the Last Americans Standing Show and Director of the National Illegal Immigration Boycott Coalition (NIIBC). Gheen has also served as a legislative assistant and two tour Assistant Sgt-At-Arms in the NC Legislature, Sr. Class President of East Carolina University (95), and a statewide officer for the NC Democratic Party during college. He led a political revolt against Mary Schulken’s political allies on the Greenville, NC City Council in the 90’s which led to the resignation of the Mayor, City Manager, Chief of Police, and four members of the Council.

ROOFING COMPANY PRESIDENT PLEADS GUILTY TO CONSPIRACY TO HIRE ILLEGAL ALIENS

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – John F. Wood, United States Attorney for the Western District of Missouri, announced that the president of a Kansas City, Mo., area roofing company pleaded guilty in federal court today to conspiring to hire illegal aliens to work for several area roofing companies.

“Employers who hire illegal aliens jeopardize the security of our nation’s borders and erode our economic vitality,” Wood said. “This defendant not only relied upon hiring illegal aliens as part of his business model, but actually helped smuggle workers into the United States. Employers are an important line of defense to preserve the integrity of our immigration system, and we will not tolerate those who encourage and profit from illegal immigration.

Tony Evans, 49, of Stillwell, Kan., pleaded guilty before U.S. Magistrate Judge Sarah W. Hays this afternoon to the charges contained in a May 29, 2007, federal indictment.

Evans was president until February 2006 of Mid-Continent Specialists (MCS), a Kansas corporation that has had offices in three states, including Independence, Mo., Kansas City, Mo., Parkville, Mo., Pensacola, Fla., and Gulfport, Miss. Evans left MCS and opened Metro Roofing Services in February 2006.

By pleading guilty today, Evans admitted that he participated in two separate conspiracies to encourage illegal aliens to enter and reside in the United States for the purpose of commercial advantage and private financial gain.

On March 28, 2001, 23 illegal aliens were arrested in Gravois Mills, Mo. These individuals had been at MCS job sites around the Lake of the Ozarks area. Most of those workers were deported to Mexico except co-defendant Luis Hernandez-Bautista, also known as Miguel Hernandez, 34, a citizen of Mexico residing in Kansas City, Mo. Hernandez-Bautista posted an immigration bond and MCS petitioned to remain in the United States as a skilled laborer. Shortly thereafter, Hernandez-Bautista borrowed $11,000 from MCS to help smuggle the deported workers back into the United States. Immediately upon their return to the United States, most of these illegal workers again began working on MCS job sites under the direction of Hernandez-Bautista.

Hernandez-Bautista set up a number of his own companies (including LH Roofing, LLP and LHB Roofing, Inc.), all of which worked with MCS as “subcontractors” on various roofing jobs. Most of these companies set up by Hernandez-Bautista were set up as partnerships with most of the “partners” being illegal aliens who provided nothing to the partnership other than their labor. MCS would only deal with Hernandez-Bautista and all payments to the actual workers on the various roofing jobs were made to Hernandez-Bautista, who deposited the checks into accounts he controlled. Hernandez-Bautista drafted checks to the various illegal aliens, who possessed sufficient identification to cash the checks.

All of the roofers who worked with Hernandez-Bautista were illegal aliens who were unlawfully present in the United States, the majority having been previously deported in March

2001. These illegal aliens reported to MCS’s office to get their job assignments. At this location, the illegal workers would contact Hernandez-Bautista, who provided the various crews with the job sites for the given week. These job sites would be provided to Hernandez-Bautista through Evans.

When Evans left MCS and opened Metro Roofing Services, he continued to utilize Hernandez-Bautista and the illegal alien workers on Metro Roofing job sites. Metro Roofing paid Hernandez-Bautista and numerous illegal aliens using the same payment method that was used by MCS.

Approximately $5,518,809 was paid by MCS to Hernandez-Bautista and numerous illegal aliens in the course of the first conspiracy to hire illegal aliens.

Approximately $740,823 was paid by Metro Roofing Services to Hernandez-Bautista and numerous illegal aliens in the course of the second conspiracy to hire illegal aliens from February 2006 until May 2007.

Evans is the sixth co-defendant to plead guilty to charges contained in the federal indictment. Hernandez-Bautista pleaded guilty on July 22, 2008, to his role in the conspiracies. Co-defendants Mario Bautista-Ojendiz, 26, of Grandview, Mo., and Dante Cardillo-Rendon, 25, Gaudencio Bautista, 32, and Abel Montiel-Angel, 38, all with unknown addresses, pleaded guilty to participating in a money-laundering conspiracy. Bautista-Ojendiz and Cardillo-Rendon also pleaded guilty to illegally reentering the United States after having been deported.

Under federal statutes, Evans could be subject to a sentence of up to 20 years in federal prison without parole, plus a fine up to $500,000. A sentencing hearing will be scheduled after the completion of a presentence investigation by the United States Probation Office.

This case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney David M. Ketchmark. It was investigated by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, IRS-Criminal Investigation, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, and the Social Security Administration.

ICE, Tulsa-area law enforcement arrest 45 gang members, immigration violators

(Media-Newswire.com) – TULSA, Okla. – U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement ( ICE ) on Thursday announced the arrest of 45 gang members, gang associates and immigration violators during this latest six-day local effort of an ongoing national ICE program called “Operation Community Shield.”

The operation began Friday and ended Wednesday night. Fifteen of those arrested are transnational gang members who are aliens and will be processed for deportation following any pending criminal charges against them. Thirteen of those arrested have no known gang affiliation but are deportable due to their criminal convictions or because they are in the U.S. illegally. Another 17 U.S. citizen gang members were also arrested on state warrants or criminal charges during the operation.

The following law enforcement agencies assisted with this operation: Tulsa County Sheriff’s Office, Tulsa Police Department, Oklahoma’s Alcohol Beverage Law Enforcement Commission ( ABLE ), and the FBI.

Each of the 32 gang members arrested during this operation was associated with one of the following violent street gangs: Bloods, East Side Longos, Hoover Crips, Juaritos, Latin Kings, Mara Salvatrucha ( MS-13 ), and Surenos.

Three gang members were arrested during the planning phase of the operation based on outstanding state arrest warrants. Aggravated felons accounted for 17 of the arrests. Following are some of the criminal convictions or charges from those arrested during this operation: murder, armed robbery, felon possessing a firearm, weapons charges, accessory to a murder, various drug charges, shooting with intent to kill, assault with a deadly weapon, and re-entering the U.S. after being deported. The U.S. citizen gang members were immediately turned over to local law enforcement to answer for state warrants against them. ICE placed detainers on two alien gang members now in state custody so that if they’re released for any reason, they’ll be transferred to ICE.

In addition to those arrested, the following items were also seized: 11 handguns, $2,100 cash, an ounce of cocaine and 0.3 ounces of crystal methamphetamine.

ICE will present some of the aliens’ cases to the U.S. Attorney’s Office, Northern District of Oklahoma, for federal prosecution.

Of the non-U.S. citizens arrested, 26 are from Mexico, one from Nigeria and one from El Salvador. Following any judicial proceedings and sentences, all will be returned to their countries of origin.

“ICE has unique immigration and customs law enforcement authorities which complement the authorities of our federal, state and local partners,” said James Delia, resident agent in charge of the ICE Office of Investigations in Oklahoma City. “Together, we can effectively remove dangerous gang members and associates from the streets to make our communities safer. Local law enforcement agencies act as significant partners in these anti-gang operations.”

About Operation Community Shield

Operation Community Shield is a national law enforcement initiative that partners ICE with other federal, state and local law enforcement, combining resources, authorities and expertise in an effort to target members of violent street gangs. Since ICE began Operation Community Shield in February 2005, more than 8,000 gang members belonging to more than 700 different gangs have been arrested. More information on Operation Community Shield is available at: http://www.ice.gov.

Under this initiative, ICE works to:

• Identify violent gangs and develop intelligence on their members, associates and organizations.

• Deter, disrupt and dismantle gang operations by tracing and seizing their cash, weapons and other assets

• Criminally prosecute or remove gang members from the United States.

• Partner with other law enforcement agencies at the local, state and federal level – both in the United States and abroad – to develop a “force multiplier” effect in investigations and other law enforcement actions against gangs.

• Conduct outreach efforts to boost public awareness about the fight against violent gangs.

• The public is encouraged to report suspicious activity by calling ICE’s toll-free hotline at: 1-866-347-2423. This hotline is staffed around the clock.

Business owner says illegal immigration costing local jobs

By Mark Wineka

mwineka@salisburypost.com

Ron Wetzler has had enough.

The owner of Olympic Drywall and Texturing in Rowan County says he’s losing out on jobs awarded instead to subcontractors who employ illegal immigrants, mostly Mexicans.

It’s happening on both commercial and residential construction projects in Rowan County, Wetzler claims.

He doesn’t have proof as to which workers are illegal. The way it works, he says, is usually the subcontractor himself is a legal resident, who then pays his crews — most of whom are here illegally — in cash.

Wetzler says the Hispanic workers’ wages are low — maybe $50 a day. No one’s paying workers’ compensation or liability insurance, and the government is seeing nothing in taxes. It all combines to make it hard for companies such as his to compete.

“They’re so far under us in cost,” Wetzler says.

He recently reported his suspicions about one job site to the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office, which told him to take the matter to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

While local sheriff’s offices, including Rowan, have stepped up their identification and deportation of illegal immigrants who commit crimes, the emphasis has been just that — illegal immigrants who end up arrested and in county jails.

The N.C. Department of Labor has no program in place to which citizens can report their suspicions about illegal immigrants on job sites. Those calls also are referred to the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s tip line, which for now is about the only recourse Wetzler and others like him have.

The federal tip line number is 1-866-DHS-2ICE.

Prison time for hiring illegals

By Jim Hannah • jhannah@nky.com • July 21, 2008

COVINGTON – Longtime Fort Wright politician and business leader Jeff Wolnitzek was sentenced today to eight months in prison for using illegal immigrant labor at his commercial interior contracting company.

He and his Crescent Springs-based business, Spectrum Interiors, also will forfeit $2 million earned from the illegal scheme.

“I accept responsibility for my action,” Wolnitzek told the judge before the sentence was handed down, “and I’m very sorry this happened.”

Nothing more was said by Wolnitzek, who will report to prison at a yet-to-be-decided date.

Rejecting his request for a sentence of no jail time, U.S. District Judge David Bunning followed prosecutors’ recommendation. Wolnitzek also will have to serve two years on probation.

Bunning called Wolnitzek’s business practices “cheating” and said unscrupulous businessmen like him were contributing to the nation’s illegal immigrant problem.

The sentencing brought a standing-room only crowd of about 40 people to Bunning’s courtroom. It was a diverse group of people in support of Wolnitzek and business competitors who claimed he used illegal immigrants to undercut them when bidding on jobs.

Bunning received an inch-thick stack of letters from people like former Fort Wright Mayor Gene Weaver, Northern Kentucky developer Bill Butler and Messer construction company officials who vouched for Wolnitzek’s character.

When the conviction forced Wolnitzek from his council seat in Fort Wright, city leaders passed a resolution recognizing the many achievements of their former colleague.

The public knew Wolnitzek as a hard-working man dedicated to public service, Assistant U.S. Attorney Robert McBride said, but behind closed doors he was a cutthroat businessman who had no regard for the law.

Wolnitzek pleaded guilty to conspiracy to harbor aliens for commercial advantage or private financial gain, but the details of the charge were not unsealed until Monday.
Spectrum subcontracted with illegal immigrant Louis Garcia for as much as half of its labor force from August 2002 through November 2006, according to the plea agreement. Spectrum would provide Garcia’s employees with hats, goggles, identification cards and uniforms despite the fact many were illegal immigrants themselves.

The scheme fell apart in November 2005 when Garcia pleaded guilty to tax evasion and agreed to become an undercover informant for federal agents investigating Wolnitzek. He wore a wire during meeting where Wolnitzek agreed to continue to use Garcia’s illegal immigrant labor even after Garcia was jailed on the tax evasion charges.

Slaying suspect once found sanctuary in S.F.

Sunday, July 20, 2008

The man charged with killing a father and two sons on a San Francisco street last month was one of the youths who benefited from the city’s long-standing practice of shielding illegal immigrant juveniles who committed felonies from possible deportation, The Chronicle has learned.


Edwin Ramos, now 21, is being held on three counts of murder in the June 22 deaths of Tony Bologna, 48, and his sons Michael, 20, and Matthew, 16. They were shot near their home in the Excelsior district when Tony Bologna, driving home from a family picnic, briefly blocked the gunman’s car from completing a left turn down a narrow street, police say.

Ramos, a native of El Salvador whom prosecutors say is a member of a violent street gang, was found guilty of two felonies as a juvenile – a gang-related assault on a Muni passenger and the attempted robbery of a pregnant woman – according to authorities familiar with his background.

E-Verify Reauthorization Stalled With Time Running Out

Congressional efforts to reauthorize E-Verify, the electronic work authorization verification program, have stalled despite bipartisan efforts of many Members to bring a bill to the floor. The program, vital to combating the unlawful employment of illegal aliens, will expire in November if legislation to reauthorize the bill does not pass both the House and Senate before the fall recess. In March, Representative Ken Calvert (R-CA), along with sixteen cosponsors, introduced H.R.5596, which would extend the E-Verify program for a ten-year period. Plans to bring the bill to the floor were halted earlier this month when Representative Sam Johnson (R-TX) insisted that language be added to the bill that could jeopardize future funding of the operation of the program. In short, Rep. Johnson’s language would prohibit the Social Security Administration (SSA) from ever spending any of its own funds to implement the program. Since the program is a joint effort of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and SSA, this means that if DHS ever fails to enter into a reimbursement agreement with SSA, the SSA database could not be used to verify an employee’s legal work status.

Multiple Hill sources inform FAIR that efforts are underway to get a clean reauthorization bill to the House floor—i.e. the original Calvert bill without the Johnson language.  With E-Verify set to expire in November and the month-long August recess just around the corner, lawmakers are running out of time to reauthorize this important program.

Since its inception in 1996, the electronic verification program has proven to be an effective and useful tool in protecting legal workers and the individuals who hire them. In fact, in the last few years the number of employers registered for E-Verify has risen to over 75,000, and DHS recently reported that over 1,000 new employers are registering each week. (Testimony of Secretary Michael Chertoff, July 17, 2008)

In fact, support for E-Verify has grown so significantly that President Bush last month issued an executive order requiring all federal contractors to use the program for new and existing hires. (White House Press Release, June 9, 2008) Following the announcement, DHS Secretary Michael Chertoff said, “A large part of our success in enforcing the nation’s immigration laws hinges on equipping employers with the tools to determine quickly and effectively if a worker is legal or illegal. E-Verify is a proven tool that helps employers immediately verify the legal working status for all new hires.” (DHS Press Release, June 9, 2008)

In addition to federal contractors, eleven states have also enacted laws encouraging or requiring use of E-Verify for state contractors, state employees, and, in some cases, for all employees. (National Conference of State Legislatures, May 5, 2008) States included are Arizona, Colorado, Georgia, Idaho, Minnesota, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Rhode Island, Utah, and, most recently, South Carolina. (Id.) Following a contentious battle in the South Carolina State Legislature, Governor Mark Sanford praised his state’s adoption of legislation that requires all employers to use E-Verify: “We’ve said from day one that while we’re a nation of immigrants, we’re also a nation of laws – and that South Carolina shouldn’t be in the business of sanctioning illegal activity with a wink and a nod.” (Sanford Press Release, June 4, 2008)

Stay tuned for more information on legislative efforts to re-authorize E-Verify.

Please help support Bob Onder for Congress

From Freedom Folks:

Someone To Keep An Eye On: Bob Onder

Posted by Jake in Uncategorized |

I received a call last night from Dr. Bob Onder’s Internet Outreach Director. We chatted for about a half an hour and he asked that I check out Bob Onder, so I did.

As we are faced with a choice between excrement sandwiches for president this year, Senate and Congressional races are more important than ever, especially for those opposing amnesty and supporting (actually) secure borders (yes I’m looking at you McAmnesty! Oh, and you too Obama!)

Now as I told the rep I won’t go so far as to support Mr. Onder as of yet, however there are some things that definitely move me toward him as a ’secure borders’ candidate. The first? This muddled statement from his opponent on what constitutes amnesty and what we should do about it

Tribune managing editor Jim Robertson asked Luetkemeyer point blank whether he would “carry the banner for amnesty.” This was his response:

Luetkemeyer defined amnesty as “totally forgiving somebody” and “forgetting about their crimes” and “wiping the slate clean and allowing them to stay.”

In an interview on Wednesday, Luetkemeyer said his intention is to support policies where illegal immigrants are found and documented to inform officials know who they are. Luetkemeyer said that he would not support giving illegal immigrants any preference in a guest worker program after they are forced to leave the country.

“They have been here illegally and therefore they have to go through the whole process — like everybody else does — of getting back into country,” Luetkemeyer said. “Anybody who’s trying to misrepresent that is really stretching what’s going on. But my intention is… we got to find them, document them, get them out of the country. If they’re people who are trained, who’ve been successful at this point – put them at the back of the line and let them go back through the process. And certainly what we need to do is raise the number of people we have coming to this country, maybe change the visa system so we can extend those visas for longer than the period of time that we’re getting right now. Those are all options and ways to present this problem.”

“But absolutely, positively under no circumstances do we allow these people the freedom to stay in this country without some sort of penalty down the road,” he added.

So if I’m understanding this correctly: we need to document illegal aliens so we can remove them only to allow them back in if they’re skilled enough to take an AMERICAN JOB? Oh, and then punish them, presumably with backrubs and fine European chocolates?

He’s received an endorsement from Phyllis Schafly of the Eagle Forum. Here’s what she had to say: I am happy to endorse Dr. Bob Onder. Bob is a proven leader on all the issues important to Missouri families and Eagle Forum members. He led the fight against the HPV vaccine mandate and authored a bill to crack down on illegal immigration.”

Local MO. blog reflectionsofaparalytic consider Onder’s running “great news” and they consider him “wonderfully faith and family oriented,” and strongly pro-life.

To quote them further: Since we may have little to hope for as far as our next President is concerned, it is vitally important that we work to help elect good, principled leaders on the local, state and congressional levels.

To take that idea a step further, instead of trying to magically elect a president who will support us why don’t we begin raising up leaders for the position so that when public opinion catches up with the clearly expressed will of the people we will have good folks in place to pick up the mantle?

D. Onder definitely seems like someone to keep an eye on, and if we’re serious about securing our borders and dealing with immigration we need to be supporting guys like Bob Onder, even if we don’t live in their districts.

All politics is local now folks, and its up to us to find and nurture candidates like Bob Onder if we want to try to make a change in Washington.

Couple of things that I like about Bob so far, he is reaching out to the internet, as far as I’m concerned any candidate that seems afraid of the internet knows that he is supporting positions that he shouldn’t and knows we’ll cut him no slack unlike the lapdog media. He was also vice-chair of the Missouri Special Committee on Immigration.

And he is saying that he will oppose amnesty and work to secure our borders. If he’s serious and sticks to this pledge he’ll certainly have our support.

Please let us know of any other candidates that we need to be supporting out there, it is critically important that we elect folks that will be a brick wall against the open borders desires of Obama/McCain.

You can check out his campaign site here.

FYI: I am receiving no compensation of any kind for this post.
