Immigration Policy of the United States

The points below are identical to every other developed nation in the world. While I avidly support immigration, I do not support unchecked illegal immigration which takes jobs and resources from American citizens.

1. Children born to illegal immigrant parents are not US citizens.

2. Illegal immigrants are allowed to vote in any election in the United States. There must be a means to verify citizenship status of all registered voters.

3. It must be illegal to employ illegal immigrants. Businesses must be held responsible for verifying the citizenship status of their employees. Any business employing illegal immigrants must be subject to steep fines and other sanctions including being forced to shut down. Egregious violators must be subject to imprisonment. This law must apply to all businesses, be they small private contractors or large corporations.

4. People working illegally in the United States should be subject to imprisonment and eventual deportation.

5. It must be illegal to provide housing to illegal immigrants. Landlords must be held responsible for verifying the citizenship status of their tenants. Any landlord providing housing to illegal immigrants must be subject to steep fines, sanctions, and even imprisonment.

6. It must be illegal for any state, county, municipal, or other governmental body within the United States to enact laws or policies which bypass or conflict in any way with US federal law, subject to strict fines, sanctions, or further actions depending upon the severity.

UK’s policy on illegal immigration

This was in the news recently:

Illegal immigration: Minister pledges crackdown on ‘rogue employers’

Businesses that employ illegal workers will be hit with “the full force of government machinery”, immigration minister James Brokenshire has warned.

He said “rogue employers” who give work to illegal migrants were denying UK citizens jobs, driving down wages and gaining an “unfair advantage”.

The Times says immigration officers are to carry out raids on cleaning firms, building sites and care homes.

But Labour’s Yvette Cooper said the Home Office should “still do more”.

In the United States, politicians from both parties (except Donald Trump) are pulling all stops to facilitate illegal immigration.

It turns out that approximately 300,000 babies are born to illegal aliens each year in the United States. Those babies are not US citizens. People who claim that the 14th Amendment to the US Constitution grants them birthright citizenship are quite deliberately misreading that amendment. It was very clearly authored specifically after the US Civil War to ensure/grant citizenship to former slaves. It absolutely was not intended to grant citizenship to children born to non-citizens who happen to be in the United States.

No other developed nation in the world grants birthright citizenship and for very good reasons.

Is there an honest, open discussion about this? Of course not, because the US population is overwhelmingly against birthright citizenship and against illegal immigration and the corporations and their minions in both parties and Big Media are doing absolutely everything to force it down America’s throat.

Today there is another article in the news with further information about the UK’s position on illegal immigration:

People who work illegally in England and Wales will face up to six months in prison, under proposals to be included in the forthcoming Immigration Bill.

The bill, to be introduced in the autumn, will also contain measures against takeaway restaurants and off-licences which employ illegal migrants.

Penalties will also include an unlimited fine and wages being seized.

Immigration Minister James Brokenshire said the government “would continue to crack down on abuse” of the system.

The article goes on further:

The legal defence for other kinds of business discovered using illegal workers will also change.

They will no longer be able to claim they did not know a particular employee was not allowed to work – they will have to show that they carried out proper checks before taking them on.

The maximum sentence for employers found guilty will be raised from two to five years, in addition to the fines already in force.
‘Soft touch’

Mr Brokenshire said: “Anyone who thinks the UK is a soft touch should be in no doubt – if you are here illegally, we will take action to stop you from working, renting a flat, opening a bank account or driving a car.

“As a one nation government we will continue to crack down on abuse and build an immigration system that works in the best interests of the British people and those who play by the rules.”

And yet another article that was in the news recently focused on the UK’s policy towards landlords’ responsibilities regarding illegal aliens in their country:

Landlords in England will be expected to evict tenants who lose the right to live in the UK under new measures to clamp down on illegal immigration.

They will be able to end tenancies, sometimes without a court order, when asylum requests fail, ministers say.

Landlords will also be required to check a migrant’s status in advance of agreeing a lease. Repeat offenders could face up to five years in prison.

Landlords will also be required to carry out “right to rent” checks on each tenant’s immigration status before allowing them to move in, expanding a pilot that has been running for a year in the west Midlands.

Repeatedly failing to do either would be a new offence carrying maximum penalties of five years’ imprisonment or a fine.

A blacklist of “rogue” landlords and letting agents will allow councils to keep track of those who have been convicted of housing offences and ban them from renting out properties if they are repeat offenders.

And to be clear, these policies are not at all unique to the UK. They are basically the same in all developed countries in the world. In the United States, the only presidential candidate who has spoken up about the issue of illegal immigration – Donald Trump – has been deliberately maligned and attacked over and over.

Donald Trump is more than just a candidate who is running for President and challenging the system. He is exposing how vast the scale of control is over politics and Big Media in the United States.

What we are seeing is just how rotten and corrupt American politics and the America mass media establishment have become and how extensive they are being controlled by the rotten, incompetent oligarchy that has sold America out.

Stop Windows Telemetry/Tracking/Upgrading to Win10

This has been going around on the ‘Net the past few days. It has been found that Windows 10 uploads data to its servers even when every “feature” and app that normally might be expected to do that is disabled/uninstalled. For example, even if you don’t use the Cortana voice-command feature or Bing search, stuff is still being uploaded to Microsoft servers related to this. And even when users choose to not participate in any sort of customer improvement options and disable any kind of tracking, it is still tracking and uploading things.

Not only is this a big privacy issue, there is also a system performance issue, as extra CPU cycles must be run and disk and network activity must occur to process these telemetry-related tasks.

And it is also the case that Windows 8.1 and 7 also are now doing this. Microsoft has been adding all these telemetry and tracking aspects to them lately through Windows Update, making them closer to Windows 10.

The advice from many experts now is to not go near Windows 10. Do not install it. Retain your privacy and control over your systems.

Below are instructions for disabling the unwanted telemetry/tracking in Windows 7 and 8.1 and removing all updates associated with upgrading to Windows 10:

Below is the list of Windows updates to remove. Before uninstalling them and rebooting make sure that you have Windows Update set to not automatically install updates:

Alternately, here is a .bat file to run the above commands. It must be run in an elevated command prompt. (Don’t forget to reboot afterwards. You can proceed to finish the next steps before rebooting.)

For the following two updates, it is recommended to install them (see one of the comments below) but to modify the registry with following procedure after installing them:

KB3065988 Windows Update Client for Windows 8.1 and Windows Server 2012 R2: July 2015 more info
KB3065987 Windows Update Client for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2: July 2015 more info

After installing either of the above updates, open regedit and navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE -> SOFTWARE -> Policies -> Microsoft -> Windows. Right-click on Windows and select option to create a new key and name it “WindowsUpdate”. Now right-click on the WindowsUpdate key you just created and select option to create new 32-bit DWORD and name it “DisableOSUpgrade”. Right-click on DisableOSUpgrade and select modify option and change value from 0 to 1.

The following services should be removed:

In an elevated command prompt run the following:
sc stop DiagTrack
sc stop dmwappushservice
sc delete DiagTrack
sc delete dmwappushservice
echo "" > C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Diagnosis\ETLLogs\AutoLogger\AutoLogger-Diagtrack-Listener.etl

Open the Task Scheduler (Win key then type “sched”). Under Task Scheduler Library -> Microsoft delete the following items:

Everything under “Application Experience”
Everything under “Autochk”
Everything under “Customer Experience Improvement Program”
Under “Disk Diagnostic” delete only the “Microsoft-Windows-DiskDiagnosticDataCollector”
Under “Maintenance” “WinSAT”
“Media Center” and click the “status” column, then select all non-disabled entries and disable them.

Now you can reboot. When you open Windows Update again it will ask to install whichever updates above were removed. Right-click on each one and select “hide”.

Finally, log in to your broadband router and look for an option like “content filtering” or “block sites”. Add the following hosts to be blocked. On my Netgear router each host is a keyword that must be added.

UK Prime Minister’s position on illegal immigration

Watching a video now of British Prime Minister David Cameron. Below is an excerpt:

Interviewer: You described it as a “swarm”. Would you still describe it as that? Do you regret the use of the word?

Cameron: I don’t regret what I said. I was simply trying to explain that a lot of people were coming… and I think people watching and people who have responded to me about this… have understood that that’s what I was staying. But I think what’s more important frankly than the words is the actions that we’re taking and I want people to know that the government’s doing everything it can to stop people breaking into our country illegally, and making sure that we have all those proper border checks and inspections that people would expect.

…and then there are also illegal migrants, people who are in search of a better life, they’re not fleeing persecution, and they’re trying to get into our country to sort of jump the queue as it were in terms of people coming to live in Britain and its quite right that we say to those people that “No you can’t come in. We have orderly migration procedures and jumping on the back of a lorry or trying to get through the tunnel isn’t a part of that.”

America’s governments at federal, state, and local levels are facilitating the swarm for the sake of private business interests.

Mr. Cameron is entirely correct: These are people who have broken in to the country, who have jumped the queue, and we need to be stopping it and reversing the process immediately.

What I See

people selling stolen car items on Mission St in SF

Hordes of vagrants filling the city everywhere. Behind every corner there they are. Some are just collapsed. Some are aggro. Many are crazy. There is no behavior that is too bizarre, crazy, or aggro to not expect. I have seen almost all.

I have been the victim of theft and other crimes yet when I witness the sheer scale of the problem I can understand why law enforcement simply cannot come to grips with it. The magnitude is enormous. In this situation, if you still have ten fingers and ten toes, count your blessings because things could be far worse.

Things are getting markedly worse, and from what I hear from people in other parts of the country, this is happening all over.

It makes me realize that our politicians are lying and they are taking things in the wrong direction. The more they seem to speak about sanctuaries and dreams, the worse off things get.

“This was taken around one million miles from Earth. We don’t normally get that perspective.

“Because of its mission, this spacecraft is in a sweet spot [1 million miles from Earth monitoring solar wind] directly in the direction of the sunlit Earth, meaning it’s seeing a completely sunlit moon, too. You get a whole new perspective on the moon. It looks very different from the side we see from Earth.”

Imagine a photo like this being taken during a total solar eclipse and being able to see the moon’s shadow being cast on the Earth behind it.

Reaching New Levels with Windows 10

Ok, maybe not actually. LOL.

Conclusion (if you don’t want to read the rest of the post): Don’t upgrade. You lose the ability to control when updates occur, the interface is ugly as shit, and most of your apps will get removed during the upgrade. Oh, and there’s more of the same of MS cramming their shit down your throat only worse. Windows 10 is clearly a downgrade!

I upgraded one of my Thinkpads running Windows 8.1 Pro x64 today to Windows 10 via Windows Update and will now report some of the basic things about it. More will be coming later. I have a lot of screenshots. But for now here are the major things:

1. A LOT of apps got removed. Therefore this seems much less like a smooth upgrade and more like a total system reinstall, although the following apps are among those which remained: Firefox, Thunderbird, Office (upon the first time of opening Word it ran through a setup but then it ran regularly as before), Acrobat, MediaMonkey, Google Earth Pro, Kindle, VLC Media Player, VMWare Workstation, BleachBit, Malewarebytes, VirusTotal Uploader, Manageability Commander Tool, uTorrent.

Some of those that didn’t remain: Photoshop CC 2014, Canon MP Navigator, Canon My Printer, OpenOffice, HexChat, Vuze, Cubase, Finale, Kontakt, Audiograbber, Winamp, Premiere Pro CC, XNView MP, CPU-Z, Console, Daemon Tools Lite, Defraggler, Hard Disk Sentinel, Nero, Speccy, TCPView, Process Explorer, Ultimate Windows Tweaker, Classic Start Menu, USBDeview, CCleaner, KMSpico, PatchMyPC, 7Zip, Lenovo System Update, Revo Uninstaller Pro, Avast AntiVirus, RealVNC.

2. If you create custom shortcuts to any apps that got wiped they also will be deleted. Fortunately they are still available in the following location: C:\Windows.old\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\StartMenu so they can easily be copied back. Personally I prefer to have the dangling (pointing to non-existent apps) shortcuts present so I know what I’m missing and need to reinstall.

3. During install it will ask if you want to disable all these privacy-compromising things and you can disable them all or if its for someone like your mother or neighbor you can leave them all enabled.

4. It will install a bunch of Microsoft apps which you don’t ask for or want and there’s a customize option during the initial setup to customize the apps meaning remove or at least disable as many as possible, unless of course its for your mother or neighbor who might want or use some of them. I noticed that a lot of them seemed to not be uninstallable which I will have to investigate further.

5. If you don’t install Classic Start Menu (from Classic Shell above) the new start menu is basically like a smaller version of the Windows 8 Start screen, crammed with all those MS apps you didn’t choose to install but which they want you to have. Personally I don’t want Photos, Media, Music, Weather, Calendar, Sports, Travel, Mail, or any else of it. Get it off my system. If it was for my mother or neighbor maybe it would be convenient for them.

6. Notifications. In the settings there will be options to have all these different apps send notifications to the lock or other screens. Because I don’t want any of these apps anyways and besides it would be a total waste of time, I disabled all/removed as much as I could. I also think on a regular laptop that that would just be confusing to my mother or my neighbor.

7. The new interface looks like shit. I cannot understand how in the progression of Windows with each new version the interface gets worse and worse. Its almost like they’ve become this big, cynical, draconian company that can’t be bothered to even provide a decent and customizable interface because all the stupid masses deserve is the most basic level of shit.

8. Windows Update settings. I understand why Microsoft wants to kind of force everyone to just automatically get updates all the time, but honestly it can be a major pain in the ass if you are working on something critical on your laptop somewhere and then it just starts going through some resource-hogging update. Professionals may not want or need that.

With the Windows 10 Pro version there is an option to “defer” updates which I think is what I want but I haven’t had time to read up about this. Nonetheless, this is something that many professionals will want to enable if they don’t want their machine to bog down suddenly while working. On the other hand, for fast desktop systems such updating may not be a real problem.

9. Fingerprint login is not working. I reinstalled Lenovo Thinkvantage Fingerprint Software from Lenovo’s support site for the Thinkpad W520, the most recent version of which is for Windows 8.1, but it doesn’t run. This is a big disappointment as one of the big things promoted for Windows 10 was that it would flawlessly support fingerprint login.

10. Under File Explorer options in Control Panel there is now an option “Open File Explorer to” with the following two choices only: Quick Access or This PC. I would like to have seen an option to open to Favorites also.

Furthermore, a lot of my folder views got messed up with the upgrade and have now reverted to detail view instead of list view which I usually prefer.

11. Nice or neat new things: If you right-click on the computer icon on the desktop there’s now a Manage option. It is a fast way to get to Device Manager and computer management tasks.

That’s it for now. This was just a very quick run-through of the most salient things from a Windows 10 upgrade and I will write more in-depth later.

Basically the biggest news, something that I didn’t really see being discussed in any of the many Windows 10 upgrade-related forum posts I’ve been reading, is that it removes a lot of apps. In fact it also wiped a couple shortcuts to PDF books that I had in my custom menu.

Overall despite having to reinstall a lot of apps I guess I’m happy with the upgrade so maybe there will be new levels with Windows 10. Or maybe it will be kind of the same.

Update: Today I reverted the system back to Windows 8.1, which is an option available if the upgrade has been less than one month ago.

Emojis and twits, I’m sick of the shit

At a critical time when human consciousness desperately needs to be advancing, not regressing, the mass beguilement with soundbite reality is sickening.

Bernie Sanders 2016

Please vote for Bernie Sanders to become our next President of America in 2016. Please remember to participate in his campaign, to spread the word to everyone you know, and to make contributions.

By spreading the word I mean talk with people honestly and openly about why he should be our President. Don’t be afraid as an American citizen to tell your friends, neighbors, co-workers, and acquaintances why Bernie Sanders is not only the best-suited candidate for this election, his will be the best leader that America has needed in a very, very long time.

Bernie Sanders will help America become strong. He will protect American citizens and workers and not cave in to corporate interests. He will speak truthfully and represent all the people of America, not just the rich and privileged.

When Bernie Sanders becomes President of the United States he will lead America to a major role to bringing peace, freedom, and sustainability to this aching planet which has only suffered under the corporate ass-kissing politicians including Hilary Clinton who are selling out the American people and destroying the dreams of millions.
