Dunwoody GA Codes & Laws

Our Codes and Laws are based on the global warming hoax launched by the United Nations.  Dunwoody and all other cities and counties should revise their plans to eliminate all of the irrelevant and unnecessary codes and laws.
Cookie-Cutter Codes
When the City of Dunwoody was formed, UN Agenda 21 implementation was well underway.  All codes, ordinances recommended by consultants and studies purchased were written by UN Agenda 21 implementers.  That’s why all city and county plans all look alike from coast to coast.  Rather than base rewrites of city and county laws on what has worked in the past, the Agenda 21 cookie-cutter laws were imposed to force them to fit the ultimate goals of Agenda 21. 
The American Planning Association adopted the plans and disseminated them to all planning entities as “best practices”. ICLEI, the International Council of Environmental Initiatives handled training for all local elected officials nationwide. $trillions in U.S. federal tax dollars have been spent on implementing this plan. 
The Georgia Legislature passed enabling laws to upgrade their regional planning groups to unelected regional commissions with government powers to award federal grants as bribes to cities and counties.  These federal grants to subsidize the purchase of cookie-cutter plans seduced local officials and Dunwoody bought them. Cities and counties had the authority to refuse to use these services but chose not to.  Planners who were willing to “go along” with this cabal were hired as cronies. Other consultants who knew how to update existing local codes and laws went out of business.
The new codes offered much smaller minimum lot sizes and much smaller minimum apartment sizes to accommodate the “Pack and stack” high density model to set up transit villages. This caused the split lot problem in Dunwoody Club Forrest. The R-100 minimum lot size should be increased from 15,000 sq ft to 22,000 sq ft (1/2 acre) to avoid the lot split problem in the future.
According to Agenda 21, single family homes and the use of automobiles are “unsustainable”, so the codes discourage these. The destruction of the U.S. economy is being accomplished with excessive immigration and record high unemployment.  Land Use Plans were mandated to give government more control over private property.  The goal is to make private property unaffordable. The Federal Reserve will provide the inflation to make automobiles unaffordable.  Federal agencies will force increases in the cost of energy and food using regulations and seizure powers.
Permits, fines, fees and inspections are now required for plumbing and electrical work, all replacement of mechanical devices, roofs and driveways and all “land disturbances”  These were not required prior to the establishment of the City of Dunwoody. Prior DeKalb Codes only required permits for building additions or load-bearing modifications.  
New residential zoning rules allow for “personal care home” designation that caused the Manget Way problem with a medical treatment facility in R-100.
From its acceptance by George HW Bush in 1992 at the Rio Earth Summit on Global Warming, to its implementation Executive Order by Bill Clinton in 1993, the federal government had ample time to retool its agencies to accomplish this treason.  Establishing unconstitutional federal government control of everything was not a new idea.  It was outlined in the American Communist Party Goal written in 1920 and reported as a warning on the floor of the Congress in 1963.  Communists had infiltrated our universities, trade unions, federal agencies and both political parties.
U.S. federal government grants went out to thousands of non-profits that sprung up to build the perfect mousetrap.   Having all 45 American Communist goals completed, the federal government had all the federal legislative pieces in place to erode what was left of the U.S. Constitution.  Knowing that the one-world government these Communists wanted to build would require the destruction of the U.S. economy, so unions were allowed to misbehave and NAFTA was approved.  They also knew that U.S. citizens would resist losing their rights so they are taking an incremental approach.  They advance aggressively when we are distracted and slow down when we are on to them.  But they never repeal the enabling laws, so they can pick up where they left off. The Community Reinvestment Act 1993 and HUD non-discrimination rules that caused the 2008 Meltdown, but are still in effect.
Signs that U.S. global corporations had taken over our political process became more visible in the 1990s with the passage of NAFTA.  In the 1950s and 1960s, citizens felt that government supported their aspirations and were willing to defer to business leaders’ judgment on who to support for public office.  Inflation in the 1970s made citizens wary.  In the 1980s, the U.S. entered a boom period thanks to advances in electronics and computers.
Agenda 21 Failure
Europe has been decades ahead of the U.S. in implementing Agenda 21 concepts.  They are all “welfare states” with 60% tax rates.  They all have public transit with tax subsidized trains.  They formed transit villages.  Property ownership is possible, but not wide-spread.  Socialized medicine is costly.  Train subsidies are costly. Government intrusion is irritating. Their governments are mostly bankrupt.  Their private economies are weak. They all have unsustainable sovereign debt.  Their energy costs are high and in fact doubled wherever they implemented wind and solar.
Germany turned over its leadership because their energy costs doubled. Australia did the same to get rid of their carbon tax and end excessive immigration. Citizens in the UK want their guns back. Citizens in France, Germany, Belgium, the UK and Scandinavian countries want to deport their Muslims immigrants. 
European countries lost trillions in the 2008 Meltdown. Socialism and the global warming hoax has cost Europe its future.  If we don’t make significant changes, we’re next.

PCID Transit Village

Transit Village Problems
If 125,000 employees can work in PCID, then why can’t they live in PCID.  That’s the fairytale.  The Live Work and Play theme is ok in theory, but it’s too expensive to replace built-out cities with a “planned city”  
Live Work Play
This would require a large, self-contained development of condos, apartment, parks, playgrounds, grocery shopping and schools residents could walk to.  It makes perfect sense to locate an elementary school on the ground floors of one of the high-rise apartments.  Kids could walk or bike to school and school buses would be unnecessary.  This would take a lot more land than is available in PCID, so it may never happen or may fail due to lack of demand.
Where to Live
Employees working in retail jobs can’t afford the expensive condos or apartments PCID wants to build. 
Immigrants with engineering jobs often move to apartments charging $1600 a month until they get their Green Card or become citizens.  Then they buy a home, but they want to be close to work.
Others who can afford an apartment charging $1600 a month have other options and would have to prefer being close to a MARTA train station and Mall to choose PCID
Working couples who work in different areas might prefer a PCID apartment because of its central location.
Renters with children would like to be close to schools. It makes sense to locate schools inside Transit Villages if the population is large enough to allow continual demand.  These should be K through 8 schools.  
If only we were Europe
Europe has a 60% tax rate for its trains and buses and its socialist welfare state expenses.  Trains cost $billions  and $trillions to build, maintain and staff.  The U.S. is a tourist destination because it’s different.  Europeans vacation here and are amazed at and envious of the space we have.  But the socialist brainwashing propaganda they absorb and the fact that Europe is home to them keeps them happy to return home.
But we are Atlanta
It would cost $trillions to tear down and rebuild Metro Atlanta and therefore it won’t happen. It will take a long time for economy to recover, if it ever does.
What we will do is to create tax subsidized isolated versions of transit villages for urban living fans and millennials who can find jobs that pay enough to move there.  But our roads will continue to be abysmal. 
Taxpayers are tapped out.  Cities and Counties could have enough money to fix the roads if they stop subsidizing commercial developers, engineers and planners who build more attractive retail space.
MARTA only goes where it goes and it doesn’t work for most commuters.  Any expansion to the current MARTA train footprint is financially unsustainable. The $3.5 billion earmarked in the failed T-SPLOST only paid for expansion, not maintenance.

PCID Congestion vs TADs

Perimeter-area governments meet on development by Mark Woolsey Posted: 10:53 a.m. Tuesday, Oct. 28, 2014

A Monday meeting of representatives of the cities of Dunwoody and Sandy Springs, the Perimeter Community Improvement Districts and the Council for Quality Growth produced agreement that a coordinated approach is needed to encourage transit-oriented development in the Central Perimeter.

The participants agreed to explore such possibilities as alternative forms of transportation, the possibility of more and denser housing development close to transit stations and stops, and better-designed zoning in the area which is plays host to 123,0000 workers in a 4-square-mile area on weekdays.

Sandy Springs spokeswoman Sharon Kraun says staffers representing the four agencies who met Monday will work together on formulating proposals during the next 30 to 45 days, and will fold MARTA and the Georgia Department of Transportation into the discussions.


PCID has benefitted from its location.  It sits in the center of North Metro, on top of I-285, with highway access to East and West Atlanta Metro locations.  I moved to Dunwoody in 1983 and worked in Norcross electronics manufacturing companies for 10 years.  In 1993 I opened a private consulting practice and have had easy access to 45 clients’ facilities.

PCID struggles with the traffic created by having 125,000 jobs. I think it will take some expansion of the top of I-285 to reduce the gridlock and give Dunwoody commuter traffic a way to enter and exit PCID faster.  It will also take some expansion of the main roads.  Finally, it will take completing a bypass for I-75 and I-85 traffic to allow interstate traffic to go around Atlanta Metro.

PCID’s eyes have always been bigger than its stomach.  It is committed to growth as long as long as the City of Dunwoody is willing to grant 15 year, $83 million in tax holidays to office complex property companies to subsidize the job creators in these office buildings.  Dunwoody homeowners are conflicted about their subsidizing their own congestion. Feelings are mixed. Dunwoody does receive over half of its revenue from PCID, but road maintenance and city codes are abysmal.

PCID continues to be stymied by the congestion that plagues all high-density development.  The solution to pollution is dilution. If you have congestion, stop building and move it out of the congested area and congestion will lessen.  High density developments seem destined to fail.

Urban “sprawl” has allowed population growth to the suburbs and exurbs of Atlanta Metro and will continue to attract home building and office and industrial park development in these outer suburbs and exurbs. 

Metro Atlanta Highways & Roads

I watched the Atlanta Metro population grow from 3 million to 5 million.  I was puzzled by the lack of progress in growing the highway system East to West to deal with this population growth. I also wondered why I-75 and I-85 were jammed together in the middle of downtown Atlanta. I was puzzled at our resistance to add needed lanes. We did build GA-400 to address the North Metro housing growth, but we are scrambling to fix the I-285 exit ramp to GA-400.

All other large cities had created highway grids. Atlanta had I-20 connecting East and West, but North Metro had nothing but the top of I-285.  The outer-belt to encourage interstate traffic to bypass Atlanta traffic was discussed, but not built.

Atlanta Metro has lost several hundred thousand high tech jobs and our population has settled back to around 4 million, but the highway system we need in Atlanta Metro remains unfinished.

Population Reduction Plan

7 Billion Global Population Called Unsustainable
It’s Not Fearmongering or a Conspiracy Theory when Elitists Are on Record for 95% of the Population to be Eliminated
Posted on October 30, 2014 Written by Dean Garrison, Editor,
“If I were rein­car­nated I would wish to be returned to earth as a killer virus to lower human pop­u­la­tion lev­els.” –Prince Phillip, Duke of Edin­burgh, leader of the World Wildlife Fund
Recently, we have posted a cou­ple of arti­cles at D.C. Clothes­line that ques­tion the nar­ra­tive of the cur­rent Ebola out­break. D.C. Clothes­line is not just a news site but a site that explores the world of con­spir­acy and embraces the truth movement.
The prob­lem with look­ing at con­spir­a­cies is that often times, peo­ple imme­di­ately dis­re­gard them. You can tell peo­ple things like, “please just look at this video,” or “please just read this arti­cle,” and it really does not matter.
Peo­ple are busy and your con­spir­acy is not their main pri­or­ity. If they are not busy they are sim­ply just too lazy or closed-minded.
So today, rather than tell you why you should believe any­thing about a pos­si­ble Ebola con­spir­acy, I just want to show you some quotes from very famous peo­ple both past and present. If the words of these peo­ple do not prove to you that the elite of the world are look­ing for a way to reduce our pop­u­la­tion, then noth­ing likely will.
Before you can believe that Ebola, or any other virus, might be used in such a way, you must first under­stand that there are lots of peo­ple out there who would like to see bil­lions of the world’s inhab­i­tants dead.
Ever heard of a guy named Bill Gates?
Bill Gates is what many call a eugeni­cist, but he is not alone and is sur­rounded by lots of famous peo­ple and orga­ni­za­tions worldwide:
“Since its incep­tion, the U.N. has advanced a world-wide pro­gram of pop­u­la­tion con­trol, sci­en­tific human breed­ing, and Dar­win­ism.” –Claire Cham­bers, The SIECUS Cir­cle: A Human­ist Revolution.
“The present vast over­pop­u­la­tion, now far beyond the world car­ry­ing capac­ity, can­not be answered by future reduc­tions in the birth rate due to con­tra­cep­tion, ster­il­iza­tion and abor­tion, but must be met in the present by the reduc­tion of num­bers presently exist­ing. This must be done by what­ever means nec­es­sary.” –Eco-92 Earth Charter
“The United Nation’s goal is to reduce pop­u­la­tion selec­tively by encour­ag­ing abor­tion, forced ster­il­iza­tion, and con­trol of human repro­duc­tion, and regards two-thirds of the human pop­u­la­tion as excess bag­gage, with 350,000 peo­ple to be elim­i­nated per day.” –Jacques Cousteau
“Child­bear­ing [should be] a pun­ish­able crime against soci­ety, unless the par­ents hold a gov­ern­ment license … All poten­tial par­ents [should be] required to use con­tra­cep­tive chem­i­cals, the gov­ern­ment issu­ing anti­dotes to cit­i­zens cho­sen for child­bear­ing.” –David Brower, Exec­u­tive Direc­tor of The Sierra Club
“If rad­i­cal envi­ron­men­tal­ists were to invent a dis­ease to bring human pop­u­la­tions back to san­ity, it would prob­a­bly be some­thing like AIDS. It has the poten­tial to end indus­tri­al­ism, which is the main force behind the envi­ron­men­tal crises.” –Earth First!
“At present the pop­u­la­tion of the world is increas­ing at about 58,000 per diem. War, so far, has had no very great effect on this increase, which con­tin­ued through­out each of the world wars… War has hith­erto been dis­ap­point­ing in this respect, but per­haps bac­te­ri­o­log­i­cal war may prove effective.
If a Black Death could spread through­out the world once in every gen­er­a­tion, sur­vivors could pro­cre­ate freely with­out mak­ing the world too full. The state of affairs might be unpleas­ant, but what of it?” –Bertrand Rus­sell, The Impact of Sci­ence on Society
“A total pop­u­la­tion of 250–300 mil­lion peo­ple, a 95% decline from present lev­els, would be ideal.” –Ted Turner, CNN founder and sup­porter of UN
“There are many ways to make the death rate increase.” –Robert McNa­mara, New Sol­i­dar­ity, March 30, 1981
Meet John Hol­dren, Barack Obama’s Sci­ence Advisor
If you don’t think this admin­is­tra­tion is in favor of pop­u­la­tion con­trol, then maybe Holdren’s words will con­vince you.
“Indeed, it has been con­cluded that com­pul­sory population-control laws, even includ­ing laws requir­ing com­pul­sory abor­tion, could be sus­tained under the exist­ing Con­sti­tu­tion if the pop­u­la­tion cri­sis became suf­fi­ciently severe to endan­ger the soci­ety.” –John P. Hol­dren, Obama’s sci­ence advi­sor, Eco­science 1977.
“One way to carry out this dis­ap­proval might be to insist that all ille­git­i­mate babies be put up for adoption—especially those born to minors, who gen­er­ally are not capa­ble of car­ing prop­erly for a child alone. If a sin­gle mother really wished to keep her baby, she might be obliged to go through adop­tion pro­ceed­ings and demon­strate her abil­ity to sup­port and care for it. Adop­tion pro­ceed­ings prob­a­bly should remain more dif­fi­cult for sin­gle peo­ple than for mar­ried cou­ples, in recog­ni­tion of the rel­a­tive dif­fi­culty of rais­ing chil­dren alone. It would even be pos­si­ble to require preg­nant sin­gle women to marry or have abor­tions, per­haps as an alter­na­tive to place­ment for adop­tion, depend­ing on the soci­ety.” –John P. Hol­dren, Obama’s sci­ence advi­sor, Eco­science 1977.
“Adding a ster­i­lant to drink­ing water or sta­ple foods is a sug­ges­tion that seems to hor­rify peo­ple more than most pro­pos­als for invol­un­tary fer­til­ity con­trol.” –John P. Hol­dren, Obama’s sci­ence advi­sor, Eco­science 1977.
“A pro­gram of ster­il­iz­ing women after their sec­ond or third child, despite the rel­a­tively greater dif­fi­culty of the oper­a­tion than vasec­tomy, might be eas­ier to imple­ment than try­ing to ster­il­ize men.” –John P. Hol­dren, Obama’s sci­ence advi­sor, Eco­science 1977.
“The devel­op­ment of a long-term ster­il­iz­ing cap­sule that could be implanted under the skin and removed when preg­nancy is desired opens addi­tional pos­si­bil­i­ties for coer­cive fer­til­ity con­trol. The cap­sule could be implanted at puberty and might be remov­able, with offi­cial per­mis­sion, for a lim­ited num­ber of births.” –John P. Hol­dren, Obama’s sci­ence advi­sor, Eco­science 1977.
“In today’s world, how­ever, the num­ber of chil­dren in a fam­ily is a mat­ter of pro­found pub­lic con­cern. The law reg­u­lates other highly per­sonal mat­ters. For exam­ple, no one may law­fully have more than one spouse at a time. Why should the law not be able to pre­vent a per­son from hav­ing more than two chil­dren?” –John P. Hol­dren, Obama’s sci­ence advi­sor, Eco­science 1977.
“Per­haps those agen­cies, com­bined with UNEP and the United Nations pop­u­la­tion agen­cies, might even­tu­ally be devel­oped into a Plan­e­tary Regime—sort of an inter­na­tional super­a­gency for pop­u­la­tion, resources, and envi­ron­ment. Such a com­pre­hen­sive Plan­e­tary Regime could con­trol the devel­op­ment, admin­is­tra­tion, con­ser­va­tion, and dis­tri­b­u­tion of all nat­ural resources, renew­able or non­re­new­able, at least inso­far as inter­na­tional impli­ca­tions exist. Thus the Regime could have the power to con­trol pol­lu­tion not only in the atmos­phere and oceans, but also in such fresh­wa­ter bod­ies as rivers and lakes that cross inter­na­tional bound­aries or that dis­charge into the oceans. The Regime might also be a log­i­cal cen­tral agency for reg­u­lat­ing all inter­na­tional trade, per­haps includ­ing assis­tance from DCs to LDCs, and includ­ing all food on the inter­na­tional mar­ket.” –John P. Hol­dren, Obama’s sci­ence advi­sor, Eco­science 1977.
“The Plan­e­tary Regime might be given respon­si­bil­ity for deter­min­ing the opti­mum pop­u­la­tion for the world and for each region and for arbi­trat­ing var­i­ous coun­tries’ shares within their regional lim­its. Con­trol of pop­u­la­tion size might remain the respon­si­bil­ity of each gov­ern­ment, but the Regime would have some power to enforce the agreed lim­its.” –John P. Hol­dren, Obama’s sci­ence advi­sor, Eco­science 1977.
“To date, there has been no seri­ous attempt in West­ern coun­tries to use laws to con­trol exces­sive pop­u­la­tion growth, although there exists ample author­ity under which pop­u­la­tion growth could be reg­u­lated.” –John P. Hol­dren, Obama’s sci­ence advi­sor, Eco­science 1977.

“What­ever the price of the Chi­nese Rev­o­lu­tion, it has obvi­ously suc­ceeded not only in pro­duc­ing more effi­cient and ded­i­cated admin­is­tra­tion, but also in fos­ter­ing high morale and com­mu­nity of pur­pose. The social exper­i­ment in China under Chair­man Mao’s lead­er­ship is one of the most impor­tant and suc­cess­ful in human his­tory.” -David Rock­e­feller, Banker, Hon­orary direc­tor of Coun­cil on For­eign Rela­tions, hon­orary chair­man of Bilder­berg Group & founder of Tri­lat­eral Com­mis­sion.

“War and famine would not do. Instead, dis­ease offered the most effi­cient and fastest way to kill the bil­lions that must soon die if the pop­u­la­tion cri­sis is to be solved. AIDS is not an effi­cient killer because it is too slow. My favorite can­di­date for elim­i­nat­ing 90 per­cent of the world’s pop­u­la­tion is air­borne Ebola (Ebola Reston), because it is both highly lethal and it kills in days, instead of years. “We’ve got air­borne dis­eases with 90 per­cent mor­tal­ity in humans. Killing humans. Think about that. “You know, the bird flu’s good, too. For every­one who sur­vives, he will have to bury nine.” -Dr. Eric Pianka
If you throw these peo­ple and orga­ni­za­tions into the mix, you might under­stand that there really are those who are evil enough to try to exter­mi­nate a large part of the world population.
Is that what Ebola is here for? I don’t know. I am sim­ply a truth seeker who likes to look at all angles.
But if you don’t real­ize that there really are peo­ple out there who want to exter­mi­nate 85% (or more) of the world’s pop­u­la­tion then you might not even bother to look. You might dis­miss it all as conspiracy.
Agenda 21 is real. It is dis­guised in many clever ways such as women’s rights and envi­ron­men­tal respon­si­bil­ity. In the end it is really about a bunch of elites who do not believe in God and have cho­sen to try to take His place. They think they know what is best for you. You belong to a sub­species. And most of that sub­species needs to be eliminated. That is how these peo­ple think.
That is the truth and, just so you know, I could have listed hun­dreds more.We really aren’t the crazed, con­spir­acy the­o­rists that you might think, at least not all of us. Many of us, like myself, have just decided to do research that most are unwill­ing to do.

Gitmo’s Revolving Door

Dozens of former Guantanamo detainees suspected of joining ISIS forces in Syria, by Mia De Graaf for MailOnline
20-30 Guantanamo detainees released since 2011 'have joined ISIS in Syria'.  They 'moved to war zone from African nations that accepted them from US'. The allegations will pile pressure on Obama as new Republican ad warns against the president's plan to move Guantanamo prisoners to the US.
Up to 30 former Guantanamo detainees released since 2011 have joined forces with the Islamic State, reports claim.
Of the 620 detainees released from the prison, around 200 are believed to be fighting with terrorist forces once more.
Senior defense forces believe 20 to 30 of those have joined Syrian groups such as ISIS, Fox News reports.
ISIS connection? Defense sources claim up to 30 Guantanamo detainees have joined ISIS since their release
The suspects, whose identities have not been confirmed, are believed to have migrated to the Middle Eastern war zone from African and European countries which agreed to receive them from the United States.
And it is claimed they are now teaching fellow extremists torture methods allegedly used by the U.S. such as waterboarding.  
The topic is the subject of heated debate as the Republicans release a new ad campaign suggesting President Obama's plans to move Guantanamo to the US will open the gates to ISIS-affiliated terrorists.
It says: 'ISIS gaining ground. Terrorists committing mass murder. Ebola inside the U.S. Americans alarmed about national security. What's President Obama doing? Making plans to bring terrorists from Guantanamo to our country... November 4th, Obama's policies are on the ballot. Vote to keep terrorists off U.S. soil. Vote Republican.'
According to a press statement, this message will air this week in Alaska, Arkansas, Colorado, Iowa, North Carolina, New Hampshire, Louisiana, and Virginia. 
Obama has vowed since his 2008 presidential campaign to close the prison camp, which critics say violates U.S. principles by keeping detainees locked up without trial.
The White House has long objected to congressional restrictions that would prevent the camp from closing.
'Our position right now, our policy right now, is seeking support from Congress to lift the restrictions that we feel are misguided,' said Eric Schultz, a White House spokesman. 
Many Republicans consider the prison, which still holds about 150 prisoners, essential in the fight against international terrorism because it allows prisoners to be held outside the United States.
Despite numerous 'Since the president came into office in 2009 the administration has been examining all possible ways we could get to closure of the facility, but we are not drafting options to override the law,' said Caitlin Hayden, a spokeswoman for the White House National Security Council.
'We are continuing to work on transfers [of prisoners] and calling on Congress to lift restrictions.' 
'Our position right now, our policy right now, is seeking support from Congress to lift the restrictions that we feel are misguided,' said Eric Schultz, a White House spokesman. 
John Boehner, the Republican speaker of the House of Representatives, said on Thursday an 'overwhelming majority' of the American people opposed allowing prisoners from Guantanamo to enter the United States.
'Even as Islamic jihadists are beheading Americans, the White House is so eager to bring these terrorists from Guantanamo Bay to the United States that it is examining ways to thwart Congress and unilaterally re-write the law,' he said in a statement. 
'Not only is this scheme dangerous, it is yet another example of what will be this administration's legacy of lawlessness.'
The White House said it would continue to make efforts to repatriate or resettle detainees or prosecute them through federal courts or military commission proceedings. The administration would also proceed in talks with foreign governments to negotiate possible prisoner transfers.

Obama uses the same lame revolving door process for dangerous illegal alien.  He has them released from prison, they may or may not be deported, but they return, commit more crimes, are arrested, convicted and jailed, then released again.

Refugee Resettlement Problem

Georgia’s Refugee Resettlement Costly, Out of Control, Posted on Tuesday, September 09, 2014 11:18 AM
Did you know that multimillions of Georgia taxpayer dollars in recent years have been poured into refugee resettlement programs and that the Peach State has one of the highest influx rates in the nation?
When then-President Jimmy Carter signed the Refugee Resettlement Act into law in 1980 it was well-intentioned. Now it is outdated, costly and due for a drastic overhaul.
The law provided for 70,000 legal refugees per year to enter with a fast-track toward citizenship.  The U.S. State Department was supposed to screen applicants for communicable diseases and security threats-- and the refugees were supposed to be designated as fleeing from brutal treatment due to their religious and political beliefs. This is no longer the case.
Our country’s refugee screening has basically been turned over to the United Nations, with the UN Office of the High Commissioner for Refugees determining who meets the “refugee” definition. Ninety-five percent of the refugees arriving are referred by this agency, says researcher Edwin Rubenstein. Even more incredible, he found that the top 10 countries of origin are Bhutan, Burma, Iraq, Somalia, Cuba, Congo, Iran, Eritrea, Sudan and Ethiopia. Clearly, the UN’s definitions and priorities are quite different from those of the average Georgian or American!
The designation of “refugee” is now most often given to everyone in an entire class of people who are deemed victims of “discrimination.” An individual need not prove personal hardship.
Religious agencies receive taxpayer funds for every refugee they get the UN to recommend for admission. Then the refugees are all too often sent to communities without warning or preparation— and DeKalb County has been a favorite dumping ground. The program has brought into Georgia over 66,000 refugees who average having four children per year.  Georgia now has the third generation of refugees who are eligible to vote-- with a potential voting population of over 150,000. 
In 2010 the welfare cost to Georgians was $17 million, according to the Department of Health and Human Services. Counties chipped in $4 million of your money-- most of which came from your property taxes.  The federal government pays most of the cost for 90 days. Then Georgians absorb the welfare cost in perpetuity.  Estimates show that our state’s welfare cost is now approaching $40 million annually and rising exponentially. 
Consider what has happened just in DeKalb County. Its schools must provide costly instruction in over 100 languages. Now other school systems are grappling with this growing language burden, especially with the border surge of Central American minors who are being shipped to Georgia.
To his credit, Gov. Nathan Deal asked the State Department two years ago to stop sending more refugees to Georgia. It temporarily agreed, but now the influx has restarted. So the level of taxpayer funding in our state budget to support refugee resettlement is now approximately $9,700,000.
The bottom line: Georgia does not have to participate. It doesn’t have to accept the federal money.  Research shows that if a state legislature cuts off the money the influx shifts to another state.  When Indiana and other states cut off the money the welfare-minded refugee population quickly moved to greener pastures.  There is another factor to consider. Of the Georgia refugees who do want to work, according to HHS, only 40 percent are still working after 90 days. At the end of a year, only 18 per cent still work and there is a rapid drop-off soon thereafter.
Several Democrat lawmakers joined the Republican governor to try to temporarily stem this refugee tide into our state. But why doesn’t the General Assembly just simply curb this refugee influx by cutting off the money flow?

Obama’s Election Fraud

Obama May Have Been Elected With Illegal Votes
Blockbuster study backs claim illegal ballots behind Obama’s 2008 victory
(Judicial Watch) – A large number of non-citizens cast ballots in U.S. elections and it’s possible that the illegal votes were responsible for President Obama’s 2008 victory, according to an in-depth academic study that confirms Judicial Watch’s assessment that foreign nationals have helped Democrats steal elections.
Non-citizens tend to favor Democrats and Obama won more than 80% of the votes of non-citizens in the 2008 sample gathered by the Cooperative Congressional Election Study (CCES), a large-scale academic survey project operated by teams of researchers from across the country. In fact, enough ineligible voters cast ballots in 2008 to conceivably account for Democratic victories in a few close elections, CCES researchers found. A respected Ivy League professor is coordinator of the CCES which has produced national sample surveys, stratified by state and type of district, in every federal election since 2006. This allows the optimal study of congressional and state races as well as an ideal setting for understanding the relationship between the congressional and presidential elections.
The CCES is an esteemed and highly respected operation that recently published shocking information, gathered from big social science survey datasets, that supports Judicial Watch’s work in this area. In 2012 JW launched the Election Integrity Project, a widespread legal campaign to clean up voter registration rolls and support election integrity measures across the country. Our investigations immediately uncovered data that proved voter rolls in a number of states—including Mississippi, Iowa, Indiana, Missouri, Texas, Florida, California and Colorado—contained the names of individuals who are ineligible to vote.
Now the CCES confirms this, specifically that large numbers of foreign nationals vote in U.S. elections. The “participation was large enough to plausibly account for Democratic victories in a few close elections,” according to a mainstream newspaper article written by two of the political science college professors that conducted the study. “Non-citizen votes could have given Senate Democrats the pivotal 60th vote needed to overcome filibusters in order to pass health-care reform and other Obama administration priorities in the 111th Congress,” the researchers write. “Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) won election in 2008 with a victory margin of 312 votes. Votes cast by just 0.65 percent of Minnesota non-citizens could account for this margin. It is also possible that non-citizen votes were responsible for Obama’s 2008 victory in North Carolina. Obama won the state by 14,177 votes, so a turnout by 5.1 percent of North Carolina’s adult non-citizens would have provided this victory margin.”
Most non-citizens do not register, let alone vote. But enough do that their participation can change the outcome of close races, the professors confirm. More than 14 percent of non-citizens in both the 2008 and 2010 samples indicated that they were registered to vote and some actually voted. Based upon extrapolations from the portion of the sample with a verified vote, 6.4 percent of non-citizens voted in 2008 and 2.2 percent of non-citizens voted in 2010. This is outrageous, to say that least, and illustrates the need to clean up voter rolls in this country.
“This is a major story and confirms JW’s working theory that foreign nationals illegally vote in federal elections in large numbers and have allowed Democrats, including this president, to steal elections,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “This is why the Left does not want voter ID, loves same day registration, by mail voting, etc. and craves amnesty and open borders. It is not about the Hispanic vote – it is about the illegal alien vote (and the legal alien vote), it is about stealing elections.  Makes all the talk about targeting, messaging, issues, candidates, and policy seem quaint.”

Cobb BRT Resurrected

Chair Lee eyes March 2016 for BRT bond referendum by Jon Gillooly
MARIETTA --- County Chairman Tim Lee said Wednesday he was considering calling for a bond referendum during the March 2016 presidential preference primary to help pay for a bus rapid transit system.
The reason for asking voters to consider approving a bond issuance on that date, Lee said, is because it's the county's next scheduled election after Tuesday.
"It separates it into its own entity, and people can evaluate it on its own merit versus whether or not it's combined with another project that we may need or may not need, so it gives the ability to the community to do a thumbs up or thumbs down on the concept of transportation on the 41
corridor," Lee said.
*Multi-million dollar studies*
The BRT proposal has been a yearslong effort in the making.
In September 2012, Faye DiMassimo, the county's transportation director, unveiled the results of the county's $1.8 million "Northwest Corridor Alternatives Analysis" study led by Marietta-based Croy Engineering. The report recommended building a $1.1 billion bus system connecting
Kennesaw State University with Midtown Atlanta.
The county then chose to pay Cary, North Carolina-based Kimley-Horn and Associates $3 million for an environmental study of that proposed route.
DiMassimo and Lee announced in January the study had lowered the $1.1 billion estimated cost to $494 million. The chief cost savings came from eliminating the dozen grade separations --- bridges and tunnels --- planned along Cobb Parkway that would allow the buses to pass through traffic without stopping. Traffic lights would be adjusted to allow the buses to pass through intersections unimpeded, they said.
During a joint meeting between the county's mayors and commissioners in June, Lee made an impassioned plea to include a $100 million earmark for the BRT on the proposed SPLOST list voters will consider Tuesday.
The earmark, Lee argued, would allow the county to draw upon federal funds to pay for the rest of the project. But even Lee's strongest ally on the commission, Helen Goreham, objected, fearing it would endanger the sales tax referendum. Lee then agreed to strike the earmark from the
list at the commissioners' request.
*Alerting the feds*
Shortly after that meeting, DiMassimo contacted the U.S. Department of Transportation.
In a July 9 email to Keith Melton with the U.S. Department of
Transportation, DiMassimo wrote Cobb's "request for approval to enter Project Development for the 'Connect Cobb' project is slated for submission through U.S. Sen. Johnny Isakson to the FTA in October 2014. Cobb will continue station development and operating plan development through 2015. Previously, Cobb had planned to secure local funding through its SPLOST beginning 2016."
DiMassimo went on to state Cobb would be unable to include the project in the SPLOST referendum because the environmental assessment wouldn't be completed by July 22, the date commissioners had to vote on the proposed SPLOST list.
"Alternately, Cobb County intends to seek necessary local match funding sources through a bond referendum in the March 2016 Presidential Preference Primary with a late 2015 New Starts application submission for 2016 funding consideration," DiMassimo wrote.
She closed by expressing her appreciation to the Federal Transit Administration's "support and direction as we continue to advance this important infrastructure development and implementation."
Lee said Wednesday before a final decision is made to call for a 2016 BRT bond referendum, a number of steps need to be taken.
"We have to vet that out with the board whether or not they even want to pursue BRT anymore," Lee said. "And if we want to pursue BRT, is this the way we want to go about it, or do we want to break the project down? So there are so many things that have to be addressed, so this whole
thing was taken off the table with the SPLOST, and we're going to go forward with the SPLOST as is. She just needed to let the feds know of our decision and that's all that is," Lee said of DiMassimo's email.
