Speaking at the Western Conservative Summit in Colorado on Saturday, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin said that politicians and their rich pro-amnesty friends in Silicon Valley or Wall Street can afford the best security for their borders that money can buy in their exclusive, gated communities. But Palin said when it comes to taking care of the nearly 60,000 illegal immigrant children who have come across the border since October of last year that they do not want deported, the same pro-amnesty advocates want them dumped in other communities.
“Notice they are not hauling illegals to the swanky neighborhoods of D.C. and Manhattan,” Palin said. “They are sending them to middle-class neighborhoods.” The high-tech industry has come under fire, as Palin noted, for pushing for no limits in the number of guest-worker visas that can be awarded to foreigners while laying off American workers. A week after Bill Gates co-wrote an op-ed calling for an unlimited number of guest-worker visas, Microsoft decided this week to slash 18,000 jobs. Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg has also spent millions of dollars through his FWD.us group to try to ram through comprehensive amnesty legislation.
“The federal government is trillions of dollars in debt; many of our cities are on the verge of insolvency; our overrun healthcare system, police forces, social services, schools, and our unsustainably generous welfare-state programs are stretched to the max. We average Americans know that. So why has this issue been allowed to be turned upside down with our “leader” creating such unsafe conditions while at the same time obstructing any economic recovery by creating more dependents than he allows producers? His friendly wealthy bipartisan elite, who want cheap foreign labor and can afford for themselves the best “border security” money can buy in their own exclusive communities, do not care that Obama tapped us out,” she wrote.

A new report from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention states that although the annual diagnosis rate of HIV has dropped by one-third in the general population, the percentage is increasing among young gay and bisexual males. HIV, the virus that causes AIDS, has been dropping among heterosexuals, drug users, and women, but the rate for young gay and bisexual males has risen over 100%.
Co-author Amy Lansky, deputy director for surveillance, epidemiology, and laboratory sciences at the CDC’s Division of HIV/AIDS Prevention, admitted that the increased occurrences of HIV among young gay and bisexual males are “a considerable problem.” She said 1.1 million people in the U.S. are estimated to have contracted HIV and added that 16% of that number—roughly 176,000 people—don’t know they have the disease.
The CDC report, published in the July 23/30 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association, found that in the period between 2002 to 2011, among people 13 and older, the diagnosis of HIV fell from 24 out of every 100,000 people to 16, a 33% drop. Women saw the number of diagnoses cut in half; men dropped by 25%, blacks plunged 37%, and Hispanics dropped 41%. Among those who had heterosexual sex, the number dropped more than 33% for men and women.
But among males 13-24, the number of HIV diagnoses soared. New diagnoses climbed from 3,000 to 7,000.

It occurred on Thursday across from Jackson’s abortion clinic, where volunteers with the pro-life group Created Equal were conducting an informational display of pictures of aborted babies.
Mark Harrington of Created Equal tells OneNewsNow police were on site when the action began. “Well, Jackson, Mississippi, unfortunately has a reputation for harassing and interfering with the activities of pro-life activists,” he tells OneNewsNow.
“A business owner across the street from the abortion mill began to systematically dismantle the exhibit and steal our signs – all with the police sitting idly by doing nothing for approximately 20 minutes.”
Police said they were waiting for a police commander to arrive, which took 20 minutes.
Harrington says pro-lifers have been routinely harassed by police and arrested, including a grandmother in her 80s who was handcuffed and jailed. Life Legal Defense Foundation is filing a lawsuit.

Brooks County is too far from the border to receive federal funds for illegal immigrants, but from the discovery of mass graves, illegals, including children, who roam aimlessly sometimes until dead from the heat and exhaustion, the current immigration crisis is far from confined to the border.
According to Chief Sheriff’s Deputy Urbino “Benny” Martinez, officers have been catching 30 to 40 immigrants in the county a week, about double the number six months ago.
“Up here, they’re trying to hide,” he said. “The only time they give themselves up is when they’re tired and they fear they’re dying.”
Law enforcement is under growing pressure to move quickly to save migrants and recover the dead. The challenge comes at a bad time of year, when brush is still abundant and high from recent rains, concealing both migrant routes and human remains.
“These are critical months,” Martinez said. “When the vegetation goes down, that’s when you start locating bodies.”
An exploding numbers of illegals, many of them children, think they are nearing what some call the ‘promised land’ of Houston, the destination for most. Unfortunately, the city is actually hundreds of miles away and the landscape, along with the weather is deceptively unwelcome.
May get lost, or simply aren’t fit enough to survive the trek, which often includes deceptive directions from smugglers. More and more bodies, may of them children, have been turning up each week as the crisis continues.
The Obama administration ignored a report to the Department of Homeland Security last year which predicted that a large number of unaccompanied children would arrive at America’s southern border in the coming months, according to a published report.
The Washington Post reported Saturday that a team of experts from the University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP) submitted the 41-page report in August of 2013 after discovering a makeshift transportation depot manned by Border Patrol agents at the Fort Brown station in Brownsville, Texas. The report detailed how thirty agents were assigned to perform such tasks as washing the children’s clothes, driving them to offsite showers, and making them sandwiches.
Cecilia Munoz, President Obama’s chief domestic policy adviser, told the Post that federal officials only realized this past May that the number of children crossing the border would exceed the Border Patrol’s original estimate of 60,000 for the year. The Border Patrol has since revised that estimate to 90,000 children by the end of September.
However, one former senior federal law enforcement official told the Post that Customs and Border Protection and Immigration and Customs Enforcement had warned the White House of the potential for a significant surge of migrant children at the border as early as 2012.

Four emergency-service workers who found a man unconscious on the sidewalk after a cop put him in a chokehold — and apparently did nothing to aid him — have been barred from going on any more ambulance calls pending a probe, officials said Sunday.
A seven-minute video captured the last few minutes of diabetic dad Eric Garner’s life — and the apparent procedural lapses by two medics and two EMTs, sources told The Post.
“It was pretty obvious this patient was in distress,” a source said. “His body was limp and lifeless.”
Yet none of the workers — nor the eight cops on hand — can be seen in the video administering any aid to Garner. One medic at Garner’s side doesn’t even have any of the required equipment on her, such as an oxygen bag or a defibrillator, the source said.
“You can [only] hear her say, ‘Oh, he can’t walk to the bus?’ ” the source said.
