'The Country Has Not Voted to Turn Itself Into Mexico'

NewsMax ^ | 1/16/2014 

Outspoken conservative Ann Coulter says lawmakers' proposals for amnesty, school tuition and drivers' licenses for illegal immigrants must stop because "the country has not voted to turn itself into Mexico."

"How many times do these Republicans have to try pushing amnesty and in-state tuition and drivers' licenses then, suddenly, they discover, oops, the dogs don't like it? They try to back pedal but no one trusts them anymore anyway because it is just such a God-awful idea." Coulter told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

"We're a country. We are not a department store. We have to have some control over who comes into this country."

Illegal Alien With 7 Kids Got Food Stamps, Housing & Social Security – for 20 Years (Video)

Top Right News ^ | 01-18-2014 | TRN 

20-years-an-illegal
Here's another reminder of how illegal immigration is literally bankrupting this nation – which will no doubt be totally ignored by the mainstream media in their coordinated effort -- with the leaders of both parties -- to shove amnesty down our throats.
Illegal alien and mother of seven, Florida resident Marita Nelson, receives $240 in food stamps, monthly medications, $700 in Social Security and a housing allowance.
And she has been receiving government assistance for over 20 YEARS – ever since she illegally entered the U.S. by swimming the Rio Grande.
She celebrates it…and is on a crusade to get other illegals to sign up for as many programs as possible – which as you can see in the disgraceful video clip below, the Obama Administration is paying “recruiters” to sign up as many people as possible!

Kerry: No rush to decide on Keystone XL pipeline

Fuel Fix ^ | January 17, 2014 | Associated Press 

Brushing aside pressure from Canada, Secretary of State John Kerry said Friday that the United States will not be pushed into making a decision on the long-delayed Keystone XL pipeline.
At a joint appearance with Canada’s foreign affairs minister, John Baird, Kerry said he has not received a crucial environmental report on the $7 billion pipeline, which would carry oil from western Canada to refineries in Texas.
“My hope is that before long, that analysis will be available, and then my work begins,” Kerry said, referring to a recommendation he is expected to make on whether the pipeline is in the U.S. national interest. The State Department has jurisdiction over the pipeline because it crosses an international border.
Kerry, who has rarely spoken about the pipeline since taking office a year ago, said “a lot of questions” were raised about the project in a lengthy public comment period the State Department conducted. “Those comments have necessitated appropriate answers,” he said.
“I can promise our friends in Canada that all the appropriate effort is being put into trying to get this done effectively and rapidly,” Kerry added.

Making a splash!: The world's fastest amphibious vehicle can go from car to boat in just 15 SECONDS


  • The Panther reaches water speeds of 45mph - as fast as a speedboat
  • It can be driven straight from the land into water 
  • The amphibious design goes from a car to a boat in just 15 seconds
  • The 15ft Jeep-style vehicle costs $100,000 to $200,000
  • The car has been per-ordered for Dubai princes and Silicon Valley workers 



You no longer need to be a spy like James Bond to get your hands on an amphibious car. 
David March has designed the world's fastest Jeep-style vehicle that can be driven straight from the land into the water and goes from a car to a boat in just 15 seconds. 
Called the Panther, the vehicle can reach water speeds of up to 45mph - almost as fast as an average speedboat - and is fitted with a custom-made 3.7 litre V6 engine, fibreglass hull and lightweight chromoly steel chassis.

It is also capable of reaching speeds of 80mph on land. 
James Bond, played by Sir Roger Moore, famously drove an amphibious Lotus Esprit from the land into the sea during the 1976 film The Spy Who Loved Me. 
 
WaterCar partner Fred Selby, 66, from Newport Beach, California spent 11 years fine-turning the machine before he felt ready to put it on the market.
The Panther's design is based on a Jeep CJ8 Scrambler, however, because the chassis of the Jeep was too heavy for the water, the Panther's lightweight chassis is made of chromoly steel.
Once in the water, the Panther is remarkably stable for a boat that is only 15 ft (4.6 m) in length.
'We've been working for years and years to be able to get these to perform like a boat on the water and like a car on the street,' March told CBS.
March has done his best to test out the vehicle and made his first trip to the Catalina Islands last Saturday.
'Going on the road for 15 miles and then being able to hit the water and go 30 miles across with nothing breaking and just cruising across … made it in an hour and 10 minutes on 10 gallons of gas,' said March. 
The Panther's chromoly steel chassis was designed to slip into a fibreglass hull.
The Panther's chromoly steel chassis was designed to slip into a fibreglass hull. The hull is also filled with closed-cell styrofoam to help the car stay afloat. The engine for the Panther is the latest-generation Acura 3.7-liter VTEC V-6 engine, custom-fitted with aluminium parts, a overhead camshaft cylinder head and 24 valves

The Panther's chassis was designed to slip into a fibreglass hull - similar to those used on Formula 1 cars.

The engine for the Panther is the latest-generation Acura 3.7-liter VTEC V-6 engine, custom-fitted with aluminium parts, a overhead camshaft cylinder head and 24 valves. 
Both intake and exhaust valves are controlled by Acura's Variable valve Timing and lift Electronic Control (VTEC) system.
This engine produces 305 horsepower at 6,300 rpm and on land the Panther can reach speeds of around 80mph. 
The Panther weighs 2950lbs and is 15ft long. As a boat, the amphibious vehicle is powered by a Panther marine propulsion jet.

It needs to be travelling at around 15mph to enter the water and can then reach top speeds of almost 45mph. 
To drive the Panther in water, the driver must put the four-speed gear changer in neutral, pull a knob to switch the transfer case to 'jet drive', hydraulically lift the wheels and tyres out of the water, and start boating. 
This entire process takes less than 15 seconds.
The Panther sells for anywhere in between $100,000 and $200,000 and March told CBS that they've already pre-sold cars to princes in Dubai and many Silicon Valley workers.
The Rolling chassis is a kit and additional components can be bought off the shelf. 
The Turn-key minus version doesn't come with an engine. 
The Panther starts at £49,800 for a 'Rolling chassis', £70,000 for a 'Turn-key minus' version, and £89,000 for a complete Panther.

'The Panther is equally at home on the land or sea,' said Selby.
'Revolutionary in its design and engineering, a WaterCar Panther takes you anywhere you want to go.
'The thrilling acceleration is provided by a Honda V6 V-Tec motor.
'You can leave the highway behind thanks to its long travel off road suspension and travel in the water courtesy of the panther jet.
'And do all this with the security of knowing you are surrounded by a state of the art revolutionary designed composite body.

'Nothing compares to driving a Panther.'
The design looks like a four-wheel drive and the bodywork is made from a fibreglass chassis that is capable of withstanding salt-water.
The outboard motor which powers the car is capable of travelling 2000,000 miles before needing serious maintenance.
'You will be absolutely blown away by the Panther,' said Selby.
'Our WaterCar team did a fabulous job of creating an extraordinary vehicle that is exciting, raw fun, yet incredibly practical.'

New Book: 'Let's Nationalize Fox News,' Let Unions Decide What's News!

Truth Revolt ^ | 1/18/2014 | Trey Sanche 

Just imagine! Imagine a world without Fox News and Rush Limbaugh. Salon.com released an excerpt from the upcoming book "Imagine: Living in a Socialist USA" that asks its readers to do just that.

The writers of the book want a socialist America, one that would have "a democratic, accessible-to-all media" controlled by "working people [who will] collectively and individually…influence mass culture." The book abhors capitalist societies' news, which it says is "selected, organized, and presented by an army of self-important publishers, editors, and writers who…follow their corporate employers' political line."
In this new socialist society that has "erased corporate control," there will no longer be advertisements filling newspapers or commercial breaks on TV. The media would be owned by "labor unions, neighborhood associations, and cultural centers." That way, the "media can represent the interests of working people" -- not the interests of corporate sponsors. (snip)
This guide to utopia will be available January 21, 2014 for the low, low capitalist price of $15.99.
