The Reason Why Lou Dobbs is So Biased on Immigration?

I never paid too much attention to Lou Dobbs. I thought he sort of did the Wall Street show on CNN. It was only during the Dubai Port deal and his hysterical reporting on it that I started to pay attention to him. I was wondering as to the immigration debate why he was devoting huge parts and on some days the majority of it to immigration and illegal immigration. I also wondered why he was always a crictic of Bush and a cheerleader for all the Minutemen and Tancredo Crowd. The reason I became annoyed with this so called "reporting" was it was clear that it was so overwhemling biased. When I was researching Tancredo the other other day I came across something very interesting.

Tanton Population Control Group -Center For Immigration Studies(CIS) AWARDS Lou Dobbs the 2004 award for excellence in Reporting.

Full description of the event as well as introduction by Krikorian, the Intoduction of Dobbs by Tancredo and Dobbs's remarks here.

By the way Krikorian writes at National review giving us very unbiased conservative views of the immigration debate(Sarc).

Now journalist receive awards all the time and really it is no big deal. But remeber this anti immigration group(noticed I did't qualify that with the term illegal) and offspring of John Tanton who is a radical population control person is something we should look at. The whole remarks are interesting to read, but this part of Dobbs remarks are of great interest:

If we look at our population growth over the course of the past 40 years and do not understand that it has doubled and that based on current trends and that after childbirth and immigration and illegal immigration that this country could reach a population by the end of this century of one billion people. If you don’t understand that, we have further difficulties. Secondly, if we don’t understand that we are importing the population growth of other countries, whether it’s China or Mexico or any country in the world then we have a difficult time addressing the issue of illegal immigration . . . because all of these impacts are fundamental, all of these issues are fundamental, and they’re all interrelated. What kind of economy will we have? It depends upon growth. To hear both the head of the Chamber of Commerce and the head of the AFL-CIO support amnesty, because they believe it’s important to have that low-cost labor force, not only for organization or employment but to support the Baby Boomer generation, who will be retiring, so that they can pay into the Social Security system. This is the kind of reasoning that is going on in individual issues and too many of us are failing to look at the broad relationship amongst these issues. That’s what we’re trying to do on our broadcast, that we will remain committed to doing. In a time when we are in great contests for natural resources and for capital, globally, the impact of illegal immigration will be profound over the course of the next decade. For example in the western states, reservoirs—the principal water source, the Colorado River, is running at 50 percent of its historic levels. Yet population growth continues, and demand continues to climb—with no sight of any kind of abatement.

You see again this debate is not really about illegals. As I have pointed out time after time as well as others the people behind this debate for decades are radical population control people. FAIR,CIS, NUMBERS, ETC are all siblings of the radical John Tanton. They use all sorts of groups to further this radical agenda. That is the reason why there can be no "amnesty" or "guest worker program" because they want no newcomers practically at all. They want to reduce the population of this country to 150 million.If we look at our population growth over the course of the past 40 years and do not understand that it has doubled and that based on current trends and that after childbirth and immigration and illegal immigration that this country could reach a population by the end of this century of one billion people....Secondly, if we don’t understand that we are importing the population growth of other countries, whether it’s China or Mexico or any country in the world then we have a difficult time addressing the issue of illegal immigration . . . because all of these impacts are fundamental, all of these issues are fundamental, and they’re all interrelated.

Dobbs is a full believer in this propaganda. A fact that should be considered in evaluating his "reporting" of this issue and related issues. Today he was ranting against H1B visas? Why? Well I must tell you I dont think it is because of the terrorist threat really. I think it has to do with the above. You see he believes like the man who introduced him , Congressman Tancredo ,that

Now, of course this is nonsense. America is not full. In fact in great parts of the World there is a population decline crisis. We see it in Europe, we see it in Russia, We see it in Japan and yes we are seeing it in places like Mexico and even in China. As to resources in the USA, the problem is not population but the use. Water is wasted at great levels here. Much of the use of the Colorado river resources that Dobbs uses as a example is pure waste. For example look at how Israel has made a huge agricultural business out of what once was deserts. All through innovative ways of using scarce water. This waste can and should be reversed. Maybe we should start by not building a hundred new Golf Courses in Nevada that are big wastes of water. As to food supply we keep producing more than ever. We shall produce more food in the next 50 years through technology than has ever been produced.

There will be no one billion people here in the USA. That is all based on faux science and stats. However if people want to have this duscussion Mr Dobbs, lets be honest about it. Quit using this illegal alien issue to hide it.

Further this policy is fraught with risk. Already population replacement levels even in this Hemisphere are at dangerous level. While Population levels in Islamic Countries are exploding. One must ask if it is wise to reduce our population while countries where Radical Islam is expanding are reproducing like rabbits. Who will fund the armies and navys and man them if we reduce our population that far? Can we manage our standard of living if we reduce the population that low? It is dangerous policy in my view that needs to be discussed and not hidden.

You are intrepid.

How very interesting and really not surprising when you stop to think about it. I agree with you -- why do these cretins hide their real agenda behind the immigration debate? Why not just come out and say they want to reduce the population by half, state their reasoning, and see how long it takes before people laugh them out of town. I wonder how the CNN parent company feels about Dobb's proposed drastic cut in the viewing audience and ad revenues LOL.

By the way, people should really read up on John Tanton. He is one of the spookier characters around. How this pro-abortion, pro-eugenics, nut case got his tentacles into the hard right wing is a mystery that needs solving.
