  • America: "Don't push kids to show any effort because it's stressing them! That's child abuse, sentenced to life in prison!" Also America: "The IQ of our country is plummeting!" Again, America: "LET'S GIVE HELL TO SMART PEOPLE FROM SHITTIER PARTS OF THE WORLD WHO JUST WANTED A BETTER PLACE TO LIVE AND CONTRIBUTE TO SOCIETY! NOT IN MY BACKYARD!" ...and it cycles like so while occasionally a few lucky ones can immigrate because they had enough resources to survive the bureaucracy.

  • Our Country is full is what German right wing/nazi parties say about immigration. I'll let you figure out the rest. Oh same with fake news media, right winged parties call it "Lügenpresse" (Lying Press) And many more similiarities. I truly think choosing between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump was a terrible decision... I just hope that he doesn't get reelected. Please America, don't vote for Trump a second time!

  • as an immigrant to Canada (federal Skilled Worker program), I'd like to point that middle class immigrants (especially those with families) who can choose normally won't choose USA. In comparison to Canada or Australia, USA simply doesn't have any permanent legal immigration options. For instance, Canadian federal immigration program requires you to score points to get over the threshold and pass language exams and if you do, you get permanent residence ("green card" like in USA) on your landing (within 3 months to be precise). Therefore, if you can pass those checks and exams, you sure are going to pick Canada over US, as you get security and guarantees of your status immediately on landing. Those who cannot pass these barriers would tend to pick USA. In the nutshell the difference is: Canada and Australia pick up skilled immigrants with families who know language, got education and professional skills. USA gets semi-random single guys. What USA can do is to introduce clear, strict federal immigration with points and exams available for anybody to apply, without any country quotas. Though it's a long term program, not a quick cash grab over low-qualification illegal aliens without any rights or protection - which seems to be the current USA immigration strategy (regardless what they say on TV).

    • oh, Canada federal immigration does have an income criteria (you should be able to show funds to support your family through first 6 months) and you will be less likely be admitted if you are burden to medical system, that is why medical tests are part of criteria to grant immigration visa.

  • 1. Europeans discover an already settled "America" and think it's pretty neat. 2. They subsequently emigrate, displace the indigenous population, and bring all their family (along with a lot of folks who didn't get a choice in the matter...) with them. 3. Around half a millennium later, unironically claim that illegal immigrants are bad and declare it full. Yeah I know, unironically isn't a proper word.

  • Comparing to population of India (1.339Billion) and China (1.386Billion) to Mexico (129million) is ridiculous, with the immigration cap of 7% roughly 95 million each from India and China with only 9 million from, why is Mandarin or hindi not as common second language for the united states?

  • It's a different world. The U.S. isn't a free-for-all anymore. I'm American and I'd love to get the hell out of here but its incredibly difficult to enter another first world country without being a refugee or incredibly rich and/or knows somebody. It is so insulting to see how entitled some people are about lax rules on immigration. Trump is a douche and is way over the top with his opinions but I'm not far left or far right, I'm just a struggling white American male who has had opportunities given to others who aren't even citizens. Many got scholarships for full rides and im still paying off my 100k$ loan. They got to go to pre and post graduate school for free. How is that fair? I had a 3.9 gpa and didn't get any meaningful assitance like they did. My parents are not wealthy and they didn't help with a single red cent. And every time i turn on the tv or read the paper I have to see these entitled people crying about how many injustices they have to endure. Life is unfair for everybody. Take accountability for yourself.

  • I agree with John big time! Immigrating legally is complicated and tedious and takes too long. Doing it illegally is the only way to go. It's the same as with getting rich... like imagine studying hard for years, attending and paying a fortune for a university, working your arse off for free as a trainee... FUCKING TEDIOUS. It's so much better just to steal from other people! If they're being racist and shit about it, then hurt them. Simples. So much easier. Also, relationshits are... complicated. I mean, it's even a status on Facebook, ffs. So much easier and cheaper to just rape when you feel the urge! Thanks John Olivier.

  • THE TWO US CONSTITUTIONS Two Constitutions in the United States. 1st was suspended in favor of a Vatican Corporation in 1871 24k4621 Select Language​▼ vatican_bank_meeting Pope meeting with the board of directors of The Vatican Bank Since 1871 the United States president and the United States Congress has been playing politics under a different set of rules and policies. The American people do not know that there are two Constitutions in the United States. The first penned by the leaders of the newly independent states of the United States in 1776. On July 4, 1776, the people claimed their independence from Britain and Democracy was born. And for 95 years the United States people were free and independent. That freedom ended in 1871 when the original “Constitution for the united states for America” was changed to the “THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA”. The Congress realized that the country was in dire financial straits, so they made a financial deal with the devil - international bankers - (in those days, the Rothschilds of London ) thereby incurring a DEBT to said bankers. The conniving international bankers were not about to lend the floundering nation any money without some serious stipulations. So, they devised a way of taking back control of the United States and thus, the Act of 1871 was passed. With no constitutional authority to do so, Congress created a separate form of government for the District of Columbia. With the passage of “the Act of 1871” a city state (a state within a state) called the District of Columbia located on 10 sq miles of land in the heart of Washington was formed with its own flag and its own independent constitution - the United States’ secret second constitution. 250px-Flag_of_Washington,_D.C..svg The flag of Washington’s District of Columbia has 3 red stars, each symbolizing a city state within the three city empire. The three city empire consists of Washington D.C., London, and Vatican City. London is the corporate center of the three city states and controls the world economically. Washington’s District of Columbia city state is in charge of the military, and the Vatican controls it all under the guise of spiritual guidance. Although geographically separate, the city states of London, the Vatican and the District of Columbia are one interlocking empire called “Empire of the City” The constitution for the District of Columbia operates under tyrannical Vatican law known as “Lex Fori” (local law). When congress passed the act of 1871 it created a separate corporation known as THE UNITED STATES and corporate government for the District of Columbia. This treasonous act has unlawfully allowed the District of Columbia to operate as a corporation outside the original constitution of the United States and in total disregard of the best interests of the American citizens. Obama-linked-to-Vatican (POTUS Obama at the Vatican Corporate headquarters) POTUS is the Chief Executive (president) of the Corporation of the United States operating as any other CEO of the corporation - governs w/a Board of Directors (cabinet officials) and managers (Senators/Congress) Obama as others before him is POTUS - operating as “vassal king” taking orders once again from “The City of London” through the RIIA (Royal Institute of Intl Affairs). The Illuminati (founded by the The Society of Jesus or Jesuits, the largest Roman Catholic Religious Military Order headed by the Black Pope) created the Royal Institute of International Affairs (RIIA) in 1919. The American equivalent to the RIIA is the Council of Foreign Relations (CFR). The RIIA and CFR set up Round Table Groups (based on the King Arthur myths). What did the Act of 1871 achieve? The ACT of 1871 put the United States back under British rule (which is under Vatican rule). The United States people lost their independence in 1871. THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA is the constitution of the incorporated UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. It operates in an economic capacity and has been used to fool the People into thinking it governs the Republic. It does not! Capitalization is NOT insignificant when one is referring to a legal document. This seemingly “minor” alteration has had a major impact on every subsequent generation of Americans. What Congress did by passing the Act of 1871 was create an entirely new document, a constitution for the government of the District of Columbia, an INCORPORATED government. Instead of having absolute and unalienable rights guaranteed under the organic Constitution, we the people now have “relative” rights or privileges. One example is the Sovereign’s right to travel, which has now been transformed (under corporate government policy) into a “privilege” that requires citizens to be licensed - driver’s licenses and Passports. By passing the Act of 1871, Congress committed TREASON against the People who were Sovereign under the grants and decrees of the Declaration of Independence and the organic Constitution. The Act of 1871 became the FOUNDATION of all the treason since committed by government officials. As of 1871 the United States isn’t a Country; It’s a Corporation! In preparation for stealing America, the puppets of Britain’s banking cabal had already created a second government, a Shadow Government designed to manage what “the people” believed was a democracy, but what really was an incorporated UNITED STATES. Together this chimera, this two-headed monster, disallowed “the people” all rights of sui juris. [you, in your sovereignty] The U.S.A. is a Crown Colony. The U.S. has always been and remains a British Crown colony. King James I, is not just famous for translating the Bible into “The King James Version”, but for signing the “First Charter of Virginia” in 1606 - which granted America’s British forefathers license to settle and colonize America. The charter guaranteed future Kings/Queens of England would have sovereign authority over all citizens and colonized land in America. After America declared independence from Great Britain, the Treaty of Paris, signed on September 3, 1783 was signed. That treaty identifies the King of England as prince of U.S. “Prince George the Third, by the grace of God, king of Great Britain, France, and Ireland, defender of the faith, duke of Brunswick and Lunebourg, arch- treasurer and prince elector of the Holy Roman Empire etc., and of the United States of America“- completely contradicting premise that America won The War of Independence. Article 5 of that treaty gave all British estates, rights and properties back to Britain. It is agreed that Congress shall earnestly recommend it to the legislatures of the respective states to provide for the restitution of all estates, rights, and properties, which have been confiscated belonging to real British subjects; and also of the estates, rights, and properties of persons resident in districts in the possession on his Majesty’s arms and who have not borne arms against the said United States. And that persons of any other decription shall have free liberty to go to any part or parts of any of the thirteen United States and therein to remain twelve months unmolested in their endeavors to obtain the restitution of such of their estates, rights, and properties as may have been confiscated; and that Congress shall also earnestly recommend to the several states a reconsideration and revision of all acts or laws regarding the premises, so as to render the said laws or acts perfectly consistent not only with justice and equity but with that spirit of conciliation which on the return of the blessings of peace should universally prevail. And that Congress shall also earnestly recommend to the several states that the estates, rights, and properties, of such last mentioned persons shall be restored to them, they refunding to any persons who may be now in possession the bona fide price (where any has been given) which such persons may have paid on purchasing any of the said lands, rights, or properties since the confiscation. And it is agreed that all persons who have any interest in confiscated lands, either by debts, marriage settlements, or otherwise, shall meet with no lawful impediment in the prosecution of their just rights. It is becoming increasingly apparent to American citizens that government is no longer being conducted in accordance with the U.S. Constitution, or, within states, according to state constitutions. While people have recognized for more than 150 years that the rich and powerful often corrupt individual officials, or exert undue influence to get legislation passed that favors their interests, most Americans still cling to the naive belief that such corruption is exceptional, and that most of the institutions of society, the courts, the press, and law enforcement agencies, still largely comply with the Constitution and the law in important matters. They expect that these corrupting forces are disunited and in competition with one another, so that they tend to balance one another. Mounting evidence makes it clear that the situation is far worse than most people think, that during the last several decades the U.S. Constitution has been effectively overthrown, and that it is now observed only as a façade to deceive and placate the masses. What has replaced it is what many call the Shadow Government - created with the illegal passing of the Act of 1871. It still, for the most part, operates in secret, because its control is not secure. The exposure of this regime and its operations must now become a primary duty of citizens who still believe in the Rule of Law and in the freedoms which this country is supposed to represent. posted by WOLDTRUTH.TV

  • When the 16th Amendment was introduced (1913 right after the fed res was created) the tax brackets were 1 to 7 %. The 7% bracket applying, only, to those who earned over $500,000. The first "income tax" (THEFT) was introduced during, you guessed it, the Civil War. It was the beginning of the progressive income tax system. You see, the banksters got thrown out of the (u)nited States of America by Andrew Jackson and the 2nd Central Bank (2nd National Bank of U.S.1816-1836)was destroyed (1st Bank of the United States 1791-1811). The banksters reentered the picture in force just before the beginning of the Civil War. Actually, their agents NEVER left. The American people were just so disgusted with the foreign"National" banks that it took time and some fabrications, on their part, for them to gain traction and support once more (similar in scope to the mass shootings as of late, just more economical in relation, but no less vile) Lincoln was their pansy, and cast their money cow in stone, which in why he is praised in our fake history as "the best President, or "Honest Abe". Ah, no, he had the entire Maryland State Assembly locked up for disagreeing with him and opposing his views on the war.. During Reconstruction he realized what the 14th Amendment had really done to the citizenry of the country. It corporatized us. It took the invisible chains off of the slaves and wielded invisible chains on us all. He attempted to fix the horrible betrayal he had committed and started issuing "Greenbacks" in an attempt to wrestle some of the financial control away from our new masters. He was assassinated shortly they have never had problems killing off the ones they use. By becoming "U.S. Citizens" at birth you were ensured the privileges afforded to you by the U.S.(corporation, which it became after the war) government. The banksters now owned the country and began the plan to funnel the wealth out. The Americans were not yet ready to accept another "National Bank" and had no desire to pay an income tax. Prior to the Civil War, tax in the (u)nited States of America had only come from spirits and tobacco. It took until the infamous Jekyll Island meeting to finalize the plan. The pressure had been put on the government. A depression was in and we were broke. They swooped in, looking as if to "save" the country, and set the scene just right so the Federal Reserve could be born(1913) Soon as it was passed the 16th Amendment shows up on the scene(1913)...the "Income tax" system we have now. The banksters had the currency in their grips, had a government under contract to supply its currency, payback at interest, that was to be repaid with monies collected from the income tax. They were smart enough to know they needed to ensure the U.S. could make payment but they soon realized they had no concrete way to ensure all of their newly created "citizens" participated in this tax. Your labor was never supposed to be taxed, period and we Americans, of the time, knew this and didn't care to pay such a tax. It took until the early 30s for the banksters/oligarchs/Zionist to see they weren't stealing all they could because not all Americans paid. The entire birth certificate(see - cesti qu trust), s.s # system was created. To this day the Fed Res requires the U.S. to produce "bonds" that the Fed Res holds to ensure payment can and will be made. These bonds are your original birth certificate. You never even see it. You get a copy and a pretty little footprint printout to keep you in the "aw ain't that sweet" emotion as your sign your children over to these banksters. READ VERY SLOWLY so you can fully absorb my last few statements... ... You see your children are these bonds! These bonds "mature once working age is reached.. at which point we begin to pay their TAXES!!!! Once the money was converted to a fiat currency our wealth was drained. Our gold was taken when Roosevelt made the slaves, er, citizens turn their gold in. Now our resources have been drained. They think they own our States, Cities, Courts, Sheriffs, and Police( their enforcement) and each mentioned are loyal to them not what our Country was intended to be. The bad part about it is these people are you and me. There's more, you're actually declared lost at sea at birth, then dead after 7 years. That was the only way to kill off Natural Law and introduce their legal system or Maritime/Admiralty Law. Your corporate trust(bond) represents you in their system. "Citizens" were also declared enemies of the State long ago, Enemies of the State can own no lands in the U.S., thus why you register it, rent it with yearly property tax, and why your land/home etc. Will go into Probate Court upon your death...because you don't actually own it. Your children can continue to "rent" it for their lifetime if they consent to the same agreement and of course, pay them their cut(inheritance tax) You consent, actually your parents signed you over as chattel buy signing your birth certificate. You consent by signing consent contracts such as registrations, licenses, permits, etc. By signing your license you not only agree to abide by their traffic code(as a code, statue, nor regulation are laws) you also agree to whatever punishment or "penitence" you must pay to an undead entity(State of, County of, City, etc.) that can and will prosecute and lock you in a cage if you do not abide by and pay whatever they deem necessary. We reinforce their system time and again by, consenting to their system with our vote.

  • This is NOT a conspiracy. This is history and the situation we all find ourselves in. All of this can be proven beyond a doubt, yourself. All you must have is the desire to know. If you take the time to research and facts check me you'll find I'm really close, if not spot on, about these vile nefarious criminals who have ran out government way too long...btw these politicians are there playthings yo parade out in front of us so we can fall at their knees just knowing, this time, they fix things....they scoff and laugh at our belligerence and your grandkids will still be their grandkids chattel, if you choose to stay in TV land and be scary enough, self-admitted "television programming" and mass media servants. It's time we all do some "critical thinking" and start calling this system what it is...a complete and total fraud! We are bonds(s.s#, birth certificate i.e. corporate trust) that the criminal Corporate U.S. government gives to the Fed Res as collateral. These bonds are your original(that you never have or even have seen) birth certificate. You have a copy. Upon birth and your parents signing, these are presented as bonds. They keep up with them as social security #s, once you reach working age and pay taxes, this bond has "matured" and ensures the U.S. corporate government can continue to make payments to the FedRes(foreign banksters) in return for printing our money, controlling our economy, and charging interest for fiat currency...basically stealing this countries wealth. The system is brilliant for those running but dependant on us "useful idiots" complying and consenting..which we will never, en-mass, quit paying, voting, registering, or consenting. Now, they have built their protection forces(local and state of, sheriffs, etc.) up so large that any true change back to a Natural or Common Law government and justice system is going to take a really ugly revolution or a catastrophic economic meltdown. Municipalities use STATUTES AND CODES, [Latin , to set.] 1. An act of the legislature of a state that extends its binding force to all the citizens or subjects of that state, as distinguished from an act which extends only to an individual or company; an act of the legislature commanding or prohibiting something; a positive law. Statutes are distinguished from common law. The latter owes its binding force to the principles of justice, to long use and the consent of a nation. The former owe their binding force to a positive command or declaration of the supreme power. Statute is commonly applied to the acts of a legislative body consisting of representatives. In monarchies, the laws of the sovereign are called edicts, decrees, ordinances, rescripts, etc. 2. A special act of the supreme power, of a private nature, or intended to operate only on an individual or company. from Webster's Dictionary 1828...Note: Codes and statutes are not laws but color of law: COLOR OF LAW, noun. The appearance of an act being performed based upon legal right or enforcement of statute, when in reality no such right exists. An outstanding example is found in the civil rights acts which penalize law enforcement officers for violating civil rights by making arrests "under color of law" of peaceful protesters or to disrupt voter registration. It could apply to phony traffic arrests in order to raise revenue from fines or extort payoffs to forget the ticket. The Law Dictionary A “Statute’ is not a Law,” Flournoy v. First Nat.

HERE'S SOME INFORMATION MOST OF YOU AREN'T AWARE OF: In 1868, there was a corporation founded and in that particular company, the founders of that company called it the "United States Corporation" and they stipulated that anybody who would be a member of that corporation or worked for that corporation, would be called, not an employee but a "citizen". So today, if you are asked, ‘are you a citizen of the United States’, what you think you're being asked is, 'are you lawfully in this country to do business?' but that's not lawfully, what's being asked. They didn't ask you if you are an American, lawfully, they asked you a specific question... are you, of your own volition, out of your own mouth testifying that you are a citizen of the United States because in that way, citizen of the United States means you are an employee of a foreign corporation, operating under international maritime law. So today, the President of United States is the President of a privately owned company. The company is called "United States" and the word "President", is always the word used in corporate law - banks have Presidents, all companies have Presidents. President Trump is not the President of America. President Bush is the president of a privately owned company, privately owned out of England.

Landmark Seventh Circuit Decision Says Fourth Amendment Applies to Smart Meter Data Landmark US Court Decision Rules that Privacy Under the Fourth Amendment Applies to Smart Meters August 31, 2018 Electronic Frontier Foundation Wiki The Seventh US Circuit Court handed down a landmark opinion that the Fourth Amendment protects energy-consumption data collected by smart meters, because that data reveals intimate details about personal activities in the home that would be unavailable to the government without a physical search. The court held that residents have a reasonable expectation of privacy in this data and that the government’s access of it constitutes a “search.” More than 40% of American households have a smart meter and the number will likely reach 80% by 2020. Law enforcement agencies are already trying to obtain the data from energy companies without warrants. -GEG The Seventh Circuit just handed down a landmark opinion, ruling 3-0 that the Fourth Amendment protects energy-consumption data collected by smart meters. Smart meters collect energy usage data at high frequencies-typically every 5, 15, or 30 minutes-and therefore know exactly how much electricity is being used, and when, in any given household. The court recognized that data from these devices reveals intimate details about what’s going on inside the home that would otherwise be unavailable to the government without a physical search. The court held that residents have a reasonable expectation of privacy in this data and that the government’s access of it constitutes a “search.” This case, Naperville Smart Meter Awareness v. City of Naperville, is the first case addressing whether the Fourth Amendment protects smart meter data. Courts have in the past held that the Fourth Amendment does not protect monthly energy usage readings from traditional, analog energy meters, the predecessors to smart meters. The lower court in this case applied that precedent to conclude that smart meter data, too, was unprotected as a matter of law. On appeal, EFF and Privacy International filed an amicus brief urging the Seventh Circuit to reconsider this dangerous ruling. And in its decision, released last week, the Seventh Circuit wisely recognized that smart meters and analog meters are different: “Using traditional energy meters, utilities typically collect monthly energy consumption in a single lump figure once per month. By contrast, smart meters record consumption much more frequently, often collecting thousands of readings every month. Due to this frequency, smart meters show both the amount of electricity being used inside a home and when that energy is used.” The Seventh Circuit recognized that this energy usage data “reveals information about the happenings inside a home.” Individual appliances, the court explained, have distinct energy-consumption patterns or “load signatures.” These load signatures allow you to tell not only when people are home, but what they are doing. The court held that the “ever-accelerating pace of technological development carries serious privacy implications” and that smart meters “are no exception.” This is critical precedent. Last year, roughly 65 million smart meters had been installed in the United States in recent years, with 88% of them-over 57 million-in homes of American consumers; more than 40% of American households had a smart meter. Experts predict that number will reach about 80% by 2020. And law enforcement agencies are already trying to get access to data from energy companies without a warrant. In this case, a group of citizens called Naperville Smart Meter Awareness challenged Naperville’s policy of requiring every home to have a smart meter, objecting on Fourth Amendment and other grounds. The district court held that smart meter data-despite being collected directly a city utility, not any non-governmental third party-was subject to the so-called “third party doctrine.” In other words, the lower court reasoned that simply because the utility company held the data, it was automatically devoid of constitutional protection.

  • Even in Australia, the legal immigration process is totally pointless. I was lucky that my parents immigrated here early enough, back when it was easier. But talking to international students' attempt to immigrate here makes me sad because for a lot of them, it is just money down the drain. The process is so expensive, convoluted and selective. And if you are a poor or middle class person from a place like India, you might as well pack your bags because there is race and class bias.

America has lots of Chinese engineering talent which essentially means The People's Republic of China has access to all of America's technology. Seems foolish for America or any other country to allow that. And then there's the problem of Asia's inability to produce a Claude Elwood Shannon or William Shockely. Not even a Philo Farnsworth. It's one thing to regurgitate facts and another to create those facts.

    • @Charles Crandall I'm not lying. A degree alone is not enough to get a citizenship. Citizenship here is by a point based system. One has go through multiple hurdles to get enough points: such as taking English exams, living in rural areas, working for 3+ years etc. A degree alone does not give enough points to get a citizenship, just a temporary visa. My cousin did a PhD here in chemical engineering and still does not have enough points to get pr/citizenship. Another cousin did a bachelors and had to move from WA to Tasmania because the points alone from the degree was not enough to get a pr/citizenship. They still haven't got citizenship even though they have been living and working here for 5+ years.

Any entry-level positions become highly competitive and those who can afford ivy-league paper have a clear advantage. So here I am, almost done with my masters thesis, about to try again. Hopefully with better results this time. I don't think my wife can stomach a PhD run.
