How many illegal aliens voted?

The "news" media is obsessed with demanding Mr. Trump provide evidence for his concern that unqualified votes were cast. The controversial New York Times claims it asked Secretaries of State if they knew of fraud or unqualified voters and they all answered in the negative.

So what ever happened to reporters reporting and investigating?

With such a serious claim by the president of the United States, it would seem only natural for reporters to get on the case and start digging. Here's what I would do if I were them -- instead of badgering our busy new president and making all sorts of disparaging demeaning insulting offensive remarks that show no respect for the office -- while displaying the hostility and prejudice they deny as neutral journalists.

How about: Get a list of every Californian who got a driver's license as an undocumented illegal alien, and compare those names to the voter rolls, and see if there are any matches? Since those hard details are hidden through policy, statistical analysis of volume and trend changes can imply effects, for a ball park view. How about, go to sanctuary cities, and compare the sanctuarians (new word) to the voter rolls? If you can't get the names and do the comparisons, how about raising a red flag just based on the numbers? Have illegal immigrant lobbyists hidden the data so well we can't tell? That's its own scandal. Wave the red flag. How about followup with state activists who claim to know of large numbers of ballots turned in through vote-harvesting programs, and examine them with care? All things Secretaries of State have not done, the controversial Times has skipped. How about that for starters?

Ask your local reporters to try this, and mention it's worth a Pulitzer if they turn up any positive results, or not. You don't have a media list? C'mon.

Illegal Immigrants Come and Go

One interview exposed it, who invented it?

Is it misleading news to suppress this and so much else.

Mark Morgan, the U.S. Border Patrol Chief described the "Voluntary Return" program our Border Patrol uses (under Mr. Hussein-Obama, C-SPAN, 12/5/16) to stop illegal immigration from Mexico.

This is designed to handle people who criminally sneak into this country, not at a port of entry with documentation or a visa, but by clandestinely crossing the border in the wilderness.

Voluntary Return means the agents simply put the person back on the other side, into Mexico. Because they make careful digital identification records, agents can find a person attempting to sneak back in four or five times -- in the same day. You read that right. This is the policy currently in place. The person stops trying to sneak in and evade authorities when finally successful, and here. Agents no longer find this person trying to sneak in.

The report included Sen. James Lankford, (R-Okla.) asking, how many times should a Voluntary Return violator be allowed back in? Mr. Morgan replied without hesitation, as you might hope he would, "zero." Mr. Hussein-Obama was not available for comment.

Only 250,000 Illegals Flood Across Border

Media Heralds This as Great News

Invasion by a quarter million isn't a problem?

The lamestream media told you:

(Daniel Gonzalez) -- "How many migrants successfully enter the U.S. each year by crossing the border illegally?

"According to recent polls, Americans believe the number has been increasing rapidly, while in fact, the number has decreased significantly. Increased border security already in place is a major reason.

"New research by a former Dept. of Homeland Security official found that successful illegal entries, including people who had crossed multiple times, plummeted to 250,000 in 2015. That figure represents one-tenth as many successful illegal crossings as in 2005, the study reports..."

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

Perpetual illegal-immigration apologist disguised as Gannett "news" reporter Daniel Gonzalez, in a page-one story, suggests that a mere quarter-million invading illegal aliens is such an improvement we should be happy for the wonderful results. The online version of this story puts the figure at only 170,000 people, without explaining the difference.

He claims the $130 billion spent on added security has been a major deterrent to Mexicans. Presumably, it has been a deterrent to Central Americans too, and the muslim jihadis other sources tell us are coming across the southern border and insinuating themselves into our midst.

Why this study comes from a retired individual and not an agency is unexplained. How this person counts people who slipped through undetected is unexplained. How the person figures out some of them came in, were deported, and came back again, undetected, is unexplained. Why we should accept any of this is unexplained. The next effect of a quarter-million illegal alien invaders whose destination and intentions are unknown, this year alone, should be terrifying, not presented as a vast improvement. Where is last year's batch of invaders? That's enough to replace the entire population of cities like Orlando, Jersey City, Ft. Wayne, Madison, Norfolk, Scottsdale, Baton Rouge, Boise, Spokane, or Berkeley twice over. The rumor that in Berkeley this would be an improvement was unexplained.

In other news, during his Senate race debate, Sen. John McCain claimed we are building border watchtowers at a cost of $3 million each (PBS-TV, 10/10/16). You can buy a 4,000-foot mansion for $3 million, with state-of-the-art security, a pool, a putting green and multiple bedrooms and baths. Just what kind of guard towers are these? (He didn't elaborate.) Requests for information from the three reporters went immediately unanswered, and still.

If a security system grants unauthorized access to 685 people every day (do the math), and this is a vast improvement over the prior system (which it apparently is), someone's head belongs on a pike, and I'm not referring to the illegals.

Of Course U.S. Can Ban Alien Immigrants

The lamestream media told you:

Donald Trump is an out-of-control megalomaniac ready to turn the country into an unconstitutional anti-religious concentration camp with his announcement to keep muslim immigrants and visitors out just because there are tens of millions of unhappy ones who are confused about life and want in.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

The most recent president to exercise U.S statute on the subject was democrat Jimmy Carter, who in 1972 used 8 USC §1182 to summarily block the entry of anyone from Iran. Previously it had been used to block anyone who might have been a communist. The statute grants power to the president in plain English:

8 USC §1182 (f) Suspension of entry or imposition of restrictions by President
Whenever the President finds that the entry of any aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, he may by proclamation, and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or nonimmigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate.
(Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952, enacted June 27, 1952, also known as the McCarran-Walter Act.)

Some libertarian friends hold a utopian dream that we should live in a society without borders, admit anyone, and fail to notice that the nation-state system we do live in makes sense, and we need to defend borders for good reason -- to keep out people who would do us harm, take all our stuff and kill us if we didn't protect what's ours. This is why we need fine and robust border-enforcement laws like the one described here.

I started the list because I noticed, despite the blind ignorant media ranting about Trump wanting to keep out muslims and especially those from jihadi infested cesspools in the middle east who want us all dead, that's already law and has been exercised by their darlings, the democrats.

8 USC §1182 Inadmissible aliens
[List reduced and abbreviated from 100 pages of statute:] Multiple health-related grounds like communicable diseases without cure, criminal grounds, substance traffickers, prostitution and commercial vice, religiously oppressive government officials as defined, human traffickers, money launderers, national security grounds, known terrorists, potential terrorists, people affiliated with terrorism, totalitarians (aimed at communists), Nazis, participants in genocide, users of child soldiers, people likely to become a "public charge" (welfare case), certain job applicants depending on job and other conditions, certain athletes, unqualified physicians and health-care workers (quacks), aliens on parole, false claimants of citizenship, stowaways, smugglers, visa abusers, people without passports, draft evaders, illegal aliens already here, repeat offenders, practicing polygamists, child abductors, unlawful voters, renunciants, tax evaders, other subcategories, and exceptions throughout, this is a partial list.


Media Distortions Distort Our Thinking

Our system is as good as any nation's

They're just not swamped with invaders like we are

The lamestream media told you:

America's immigration system is broken. America's immigration system is broken. America's immigration system is broken. America's immigration system is broken. America's immigration system is broken. America's immigration system is broken. America's immigration system is broken. America's immigration system is broken. America's immigration system is broken. America's immigration system is broken.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

The going narrative is that our immigration system is "broken."

"Broken" is a code word used by agenda-driven interest groups when something is not working the way they want it to work. Nothing is broken. Nothing needs fixing. They just want to put in a fix. A corrupt fix. They want to fix what ain't broke. If it ain't broke, don't fix it, right?

It's a common trick. A subtle but seductive error of logic. It's being used about our fine, well oiled, well planned excellent immigration system. Oh, it could use some adjustment -- what government-run system can't -- but for all intents and purposes it's fine.* What isn't fine, for the broken-advocates, is their inability to flood this nation with teeming humanity, without rational controls.



EDITED ON 1/25/16: see the red text below.

Our super security specialists assure us on the "news"
Syrian refugees are vetted and they're all clean, good to go.

Does that include the 6,000 400,000 people sneaking into America,
unattended, across our southern border too? Don't they tip the ratio?

Border Patrol has told the "news" media that apprehensions are "Down"
hooray we're winning, and the papers have repeated that, no questions asked.
BP still agrees for every 6,000 400,000 captures 6,000 400,000 get through (1 for 1).
Critics say 12,000 800,000 get through (2 for 1). Cynics say it's higher. Quien sabe.

Correction: My prior report said 6,000, the correct number is 400,000+, from Border Patrol. My apologies for the error, Correction: My prior report said 6,000, the correct number is 400,000+, from Border Patrol. My apologies for the error, proving again, despite the rumors, I'm only human. Border Patrol indicates those figures are from 2012 forward, with a 28% drop this fiscal year, which would work out to "only" 288,000, if the drop trend holds until year's end.

How does that stack up with the 100% success rate Jeh Johnson wants you to believe?
10,000 Syrians plus-or-minus 6,000 400,000 completely unknown, who don't count.

Front cover of (our Arizona "state" newspaper, aptly named), Nov. 28, 2015
"This is what a refugee looks like" (pretty picture of nice family at home is shown):

American Newspaper Reality



Only 2% are military aged men, we're told.

This is what refugees flooding into Europe from Syria really look like
(not in the newspaper, one of hundreds of images posted on the web):


Actual Reality

They have no papers, no records, no cares about you.

Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses,
yearning for sharia law.

This is why no one trusts the "news" media any longer.

Thousands of People Pouring Across Southern Border

CORRECTION: 400,000 border crossers expected from Mexico this year, not 6,000 (Story #4, below), sorry, my mistake. Details and links by month, by sector, for past 15 years provided for accuracy. I feel badly for getting it wrong, a rare error, please accept my apologies.

But hooray, numbers have dropped

The lamestream media told you:

"Apprehension numbers are on the decline, in 2012 there were 6,500 apprehensions. In 2013, agents apprehended 6,106. And in 2014 the Border Patrol caught 5,902."

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

Lamestream pundits are quick to point out that so-called "net immigration" is neutral because so many immigrants are leaving the country. This seems to make them feel good somehow.

That truthy factoid doesn't matter, since we're guaranteed by the White House and security agencies that certain immigrants are completely vetted to eliminate any contagious, criminal, disturbed ones or jihadis. Apparently that guarantee doesn't include these 6,000 per year. In the height of the illegal immigration waves, when there were still many people south of our border, the Border Patrol admitted that for every illegal immigrant they caught, one got through. Observers on the border, put the figure higher than two for one or as many as four for one is spurts. Net immigration then exceeded two million per year.

So the real news is that on average more than 6,000 people each year are now flooding into America completely unattended, with no background checks or controls of any kind, and possibly as many as 18,000 or more. According to leading experts, 6,000 people is a lot, even if they were only in prison needing to be fed three times per day. The number leaving us doesn't matter from a potential threat standpoint.

Media Portrays Obama Illegal Act As "Setback"

The lamestream media told you:

Alan Gomez (USA Today) -- "With another devastating ruling by a federal appeals court, President Obama may be running out of options in his quest to remake the nation's immigration system before he leaves office.

"The president vowed to use his executive authority to protect undocumented immigrants and modernize the legal immigration system. That strategy was dealt a major blow Monday when the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals struck down his program to protect up to 4.3 million undocumented immigrants from deportation."

Kevin McGill (AP) -- "Obama's plan to protect from deportation an estimated 5 million people living in the United States illegally suffered another setback Monday in a ruling from a New Orleans-based federal appeals court."

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

The man in White House has once again acted illegally, another court has confirmed today. The nation's "news" media covered up the scandal by portraying the violation as a "setback" and a "blow" in Mr. Obama's "quest."

According to the U.S. 5th Circuit Court of Appeals, the executive branch completely lacks any legitimate authority to rewrite immigration law, a legislative function reserved to Congress by the U.S. Constitution, a fact which everyone with an education knows. Obama has been repeatedly trying to act where he has no authority to do so, an impeachable offense, if Congress were to decide to do something about it. Thus far, Congress has shown no spine in the matter.

By calling the decision a "devastating ruling," USA Today demonstrates total disdain for the rule of law, since the accused perpetrators broke into the nation unlawfully, an act that would have them imprisoned or expelled in almost any other nation on Earth.

According to the story, there are still "a few opportunities for Obama to cement his legacy." If that legacy includes gross violations of the Constitution, it will be like a pair of cement shoes.

Illegal immigration still running amok

The lamestream media told you:

Illegals at the border have dropped to the lowest point in years, reports The Arizona Republic. Major news outlets have all but forgotten this story, so it must not be happening.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

The local newspaper reported that 3,100 illegal aliens had come across into Arizona, in a story, late last year. They didn't call them future democrat voters, as some critics claim. Actually, Border Patrol reports 479,371 apprehensions at the border for 2014, nearly a half million, or 39,947 per month on average, most of them in Texas. According to local experts, half a million people is a lot of mouths to feed.

It's unclear what happened to them all, or if they'll become future democrat voters as critics claim. Obama has jumped through many hoops to allow many illegals stay in the country, using a pen and a phone, in apparent violation of law. Critics question if he would do this if it were probable they would become republican voters. The Border Patrol generally estimates it catches one illegal for every two that attempt illegal entry.

Where Is Chris Simcox Now?

The lamestream media told you:

A completely unexpected surge of unaccompanied children from central America is flooding the U.S.-Mexican border and creating havoc in Texas and Arizona. This story is isn't airing so much outside of the effected border states, surprisingly enough. The border, as government has assured you is secure, but despite this, The Border Patrol can't keep them out. Responding to public and congressional demands, the agency plans to hire 2,000 more agents to supplement the 23,775 it now has. 

Look at the dangerous and hardened desperados our Border Patrol either cannot -- or has been told not to -- keep from entering the U.S. These pictures have generally not been presented to the general public through mainstream sources, because they are considered too inflammatory:

Invaders aboard a high-speed smuggling boat the U.S. Border Patrol cannot intercept midstream and force back to the foreign nation's shore from which it secretly came in broad daylight.

Mobs of desperate men and women storm a government facility where heavily armed U.S. Border Patrol agents with assault weapons, flash-bang grenades, armored vehicles, K-9 units and air support were unable to repel the invaders and regain control.

Border Patrol agents reading the riot act to unruly and dangerous invaders they were unable to repel, or were told to invite into the compound, which remained unclear at press time.


It remained unclear why three out of six Central American countries sent their unescorted children to the United States all at once, but it's only unclear to the U.S. public. Somebody knows exactly what's going on, they're not telling, and the lamestream media is doing no reporting, just shoveling the narrative without details or explanation. CNN did run this image, with the faces blurred out.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

We have satellites that can read a license plate from outer space. Now the Associated Press and our government wants you to believe 70,000 unaccompanied children have traveled or soon will cover 1,000 miles to America and it was unexpected. They are lying to your face.

They want you to believe that our Ambassadors and the entire staffs in those small countries didn't see the same television shows in April telling those people constantly that they could now leave for America and be granted access, asylum and citizenship; they didn't see people abandoning their homes and boarding trains and buses, and that they arrived here unexpectedly. They didn't see countless children suddenly missing from homes and small towns. They are lying to you. The "news" media is promoting their lies. The "news" media is a blatant lying propaganda arm of the government perpetrating this scam, and I don't say that lightly.

The Border Patrol, that you were told has secured our border so it is as safe as it has ever been according to the person occupying the White House and former security chief Janet Napolitano -- is incapable of keeping out unaccompanied six-year-old children. They are lying to your face. They are insulting you. 


They want you to believe 23,000 Border Patrol agents can't stop this.


Why on Earth would vice president uncle Joe Biden have traveled to visit the leaders of the three main perpetrator countries of this travesty now -- now that the damage is done and well underway, with the media reporting on his charade? Why didn't he do this when the campaign was in the planning stages and the TV shows promoting it starting airing months ago, or when the first trainloads started heading north? Because this is all part of the dog and pony show and campaign of deceit and lies you are supposed to swallow.

We need a Chris Simcox to stand up and call for civilians to go to the border and do what the Border Patrol, with tens of thousands of agents you are paying for, is incapable of doing -- or has been ordered by Mr. Obama or his minions not to do -- repel invaders. 

The Border Patrol agents who can't stop this need to be fired. Of course they can stop this. They must have been ordered to stand down. The people who gave those orders need to be brought up on charges.


Despite claims about violence in the U.S., the source of the unaccompanied children are said to have the highest murder rates in the world (despite extremely strict gun laws), and for all we know, we might soon hear the violence is the result of unauthorized low-budget muslim videos and guns smuggled in by BATFE. There are six small countries down there, why are Nicaragua, Costa Rica and Panama left out?

What we're seeing, and what's really going on, are not related to each other.
