Keep Lake Tahoe Blue! (Yes, but why not for our grandkids' grandkids too?)

Mission & Vision

Mission Statement

The League to Save Lake Tahoe is dedicated to protecting, restoring, and advocating for the ecosystem health and scenic beauty of the Lake Tahoe Basin. The organization focuses on water quality and its clarity for the preservation of a pristine Lake for future generations.

Vision Statement

"Keep Tahoe Blue" means a crystal clear Lake, protecting watersheds that support native plants and forests and abundant wildlife, an active and informed community of residents and visitors who act as stewards for the Lake, and communities and facilities within longstanding urban boundaries that harmonize with the natural environment, and provide low-impact outdoor recreational opportunities now and into the future.

The League to Save Lake Tahoe is a 501c3 private nonprofit environmental advocacy organization. All donations are tax deductible. Read more about usbecome a member, or donate today.

     What an admirable job these people have done, and yet you wonder what percentage of liberal environmentalists realize that as the United States becomes ever more teeming third-world, as it is becoming a little more each day, eventually Tahoe will become unblue.

Attorney General Eric Holder Says Amnesty "Matter of Civil and Human Rights'

AG Holder to MALDEF: Amnesty Is a Civil Right

Attorney General Eric Holder recently voiced a belief that many liberals hold — that entering this country illegally is a human right — but mostly refrain from saying. These days, the extreme anti-borders ideology of the anarchist left is becoming mainstream, at least under the Obama administration.
Incidentally, elites of the Catholic church disapprove of borders also: “Any family in economic need has a right to immigrate, that’s our posture,” declared priest Michael Seifert regarding a Texas protest.
Still, the idea of national sovereignty has many defenders among the little citizens who continue to revere the Constitution despite the globalist future pushed by elites in government and in the press.
Nevertheless, the top law enforcement officer in the nation spoke openly in support of the anti-borders, anti-law agenda ...
     But if amnesty to invaders is a matter of "civil and human rights," wouldn't it logically follow that the invasion itself was a matter of civil and human rights? Of course only when invading a white majority nation.

Becoming Hellholes? Detroit Phoenix Chicago Baltimore St. Louis Las Vegas El Centro Flint New Orleans New York Ctiy Miami Cleveland

Submitted by Michael Snyder of The Economic Collapse blog
Railroad In Milwaukee
What is happening to you America?  Once upon a time, the United States was a place where free enterprise thrived and the greatest cities that the world had ever seen sprouted up from coast to coast.  Good jobs were plentiful and a manufacturing boom helped fuel the rise of the largest and most vibrant middle class in the history of the planet.  Cities such as Detroit, Chicago, Milwaukee, 
Cleveland, Philadelphia and Baltimore were all teeming with economic activity and the rest of the globe looked on our economic miracle with a mixture of wonder and envy.  But now look at us.  Our once proud cities are being transformed into poverty-stricken hellholes.
Did you know that the city of Detroit once actually had the highest per-capita income in the United States?  Looking at Detroit today, it is hard to imagine that it was once one of the most prosperous cities in the world.  In fact, as you will read about later in this article, tourists now travel to Detroit from all over the globe just to see the ruins of Detroit.  Sadly, the exact same thing that is happening to Detroit is happening to cities all over America.  Detroit is just ahead of the curve.
We are in the midst of a long-term economic collapse that is eating away at us like cancer, and things are going to get a lot worse than this.  So if you still live in a prosperous area of the country, don't laugh at what is happening to others.  What is happening to them will be coming to your area soon enough.
The following are 24 signs that our once proud cities are turning into poverty-stricken hellholes...
#1 According to the New York Times, there are now approximately 70,000 abandoned buildings in Detroit.
#2 At this point, approximately one-third of Detroit's 140 square miles is either vacant or derelict.
#3 Back during the housing bubble, an acre of land in downtown Phoenix, Arizona sold for about $90 a square foot.  Today, an acre in downtown Phoenix sells for about $9 a square foot.
#4 The city of Chicago is so strapped for cash that it is planning to close 54 public schools.  It is being estimated that Chicago schools will run a budget deficit of about a billion dollars in 2013.
#5 The city of Baltimore is already facing unfunded liabilities of more than 3.2 billion dollars, but the city government continues to pile up more debt as if it was going out of style. ...

Somalia Comes to Minnesota: Thugs and Corruption--Our New Diverse Rainbow Nation!

Political hardball alleged in Minneapolis council race

Article by: MAYA RAO , Star Tribune 

Hundreds of East African immigrants cheered and waved when Minneapolis City Council candidate Abdi War­same took the microphone last week at a DFL caucus across from Riverside Plaza. Shoppers congratulated him as he walked through a Somali mall a few days later, past the bright scarves and carpets for sale.
On the surface, it is a happy tale: the city’s Somalis, denied democracy in their homeland, uniting to elect one of their own to the council.
But the Sixth Ward’s two other campaigns tell a darker story of political hardball, and have filed challenges to the caucuses after complaining to DFL leaders that Warsame’s supporters harassed and intimidated attendees. ...

Unruly Europe, Part Two
Mark Bruijn, American Renaissance, April 19, 2013

Resistance to immigration
In the early days of European immigration, the Left did not want guest workers. At that time, some left-wing parties actually represented the working-class and did not want competition for jobs and downward pressure on wages. Unions opposed immigration. Things are much different now. The Left now sees immigrants as future voters, and it promotes multiculturalism.
The traditional right-wing parties backed the idea of guest workers because business interests like low-wage labor, and companies were able to convince governments that foreign labor was essential to the economy. Both Right and Left are therefore guilty of promoting the process that is destroying Europe.
During the 1990s there was very little open resistance to immigration, but that is changing. The terrorist attacks in the US in 2001, the Madrid subway attacks in 2004, and the London bombings in 2005 opened many eyes. Support for anti-immigration/nationalist parties is growing, and they have had successes in France, Austria, Greece, and the Netherlands. Nationalist parties also have a substantial presence in Ukraine and Hungary. ...

The natives and their penises are getting restless in Papua, New Guinea

U.S. academic, 32, gang raped in Papua New Guinea by nine armed men who hacked off her hair with a bush knife and tied her husband naked to a tree

  • The woman was researching exotic birds in the jungle on Karkar Island
  • Walking with her husband and a guide when they were set upon by gang
  • Men ordered husband and guide to strip naked then tied them to trees
  • Then bound the researcher's hands and brutally raped her for 20 minutes
  • Follows murder of Australian man whose girlfriend was raped in country

'Cowardly act of animals': The U.S. academic was walking along a bush track with her husband and a guide when they were ambushed by nine men armed with rifles knives

A U.S. academic has been gang raped in Papua New Guinea by nine armed men who hacked off her blonde hair and left her husband tied naked to a tree.

The 32-year-old woman, who was conducting research into exotic birds in a remote forest on Karkar Island, was walking along a bush track with her husband and a guide on Friday when they were set upon by the gang armed with knives and rifles.

Her husband and the guide were stripped and bound by the men, who then used a bush knife to hack off the woman's hair before raping her in a terrifying ordeal lasting 20 minutes. ....

'This story should not come out just because I am white,' said the woman, who was on her fifth visit to the country since her first trip in 2010. She would stay for up to four months conducting her research into exotic birds and the impact of climate change on the forest.
'My story should come out in the hopes that it empowers Papua New Guinean women to stand up and say no more violence against women in this country,' said the woman, who did not want to reveal her identity. ... 

     Definitely sympathize with this poor woman, but you've got to love it that people of European heritage are now so zombie-trained by the Cultural Marxists that even when a white woman is viciously raped for almost a half hour by nonwhites her first thoughts are to disassociate herself from white privilege. Sometimes I have to remind myself that my fellow white people are still actually worth saving.

Amnesty Gang of Ocho Still At Large: Led by 'Johnny Forked-Tongue Fly-boy' McCain

Recent Mug Shots - Approach with Caution 

- - -
Statement from unnamed Border Patrol source: 

"Sadly, the Amnesty Gang of Ocho, led by John 'Johnny Forked-Tongue Fly-boy' McCain, with the help of his wing-man, Chuck 'Chuckles Patriotism Schmatriotism' Schumer, is still at large until their next respective elections. They are believed to be dangerous and armed with legislative crowbars, attempting to further pry open America's already half-open borders at every entry point. Their newest member is Marco 'Pretty Boy' Rubio, thought to be dangerously delusional, fancying himself the 'Worldwide Conservative Leader of All Latinos.' The most recent gang member spotted in public was Lindsey 'The Grinner' Graham, who burst into a South Carolina chicken-plucking plant known to hire American citizens armed with a deadly high-powered megaphone, shouting 'You are taking jobs away from the undocumented!' But, frankly, at this point, our most worrisome concern is that the gang's leader may have taken his old jet fighter-bomber out of mothballs, so that he can, as he put it to the startled attendees of one of his recent town-hall meetings, 'directly blast holes through that danged fence!'"

Nutty Nutter Rancid Racial Philly Follies Crazily Continues

"Philadelphia Freedom" Not Available For Anyone “White in Philly” Who Tells The Truth About Crime
Michael Nutter
"Philadelphia Freedom"? Philadelphia will hold an urgent public meeting to discuss the most important issue in the city today (April 18).  It's not crime, education, or urban blight–it's the publication of Being White in Philly, [By Robert Huber, Philadelphia Magazine, March 2013] a magazine article that Mayor Michael Nutter doesn't like.
For the past seven weeks, this almost comically cautious article touching on the liberal white experience in a crime-ridden black city has dominated the news in the City of Brotherly Love. Despite its milquetoast language, it has inadvertently shown just who wants to keep America a “nation of cowards” when it comes to discussing race.
Huber’s piece offered virtually no statistics about the almost-entirely black face of crime in Philadelphia. It relied on interviews with anonymous white Philadelphians too afraid to use their real name because of the totalitarian nature of the climate for racial discourse in America. But it still manages to convey the confused alienation of whites forced to watch the continuing collapse of the society they built. ...

Do Women Find Male Displays of Anti-'Racism' Sexy?

Why Isn’t Racism Cool?

We all had a lot of fun at the American Renaissance bash the other weekend. A disproportionate amount of the fun was provided by vlogger Paul Ramsey, whom I recommend for consideration when your next corporate function, birthday party, or bar mitzvah comes around.
At one point Paul mocked the little knot of anti-racist protestors camped outside the hotel. How, he asked, could this fairly be called “protest”? What did they think they were doing—sticking it to the Man? “Yo, guys: You ARE the Man!”
True enough. Time was, protest meant brave dissenters standing in proud defiance against the massed forces of Establishment power. Nowadays those massed forces believe exactly what the protesters outside our hotel believe, and they propagate it with unflagging zeal through the institutions they control: the media, business, labor, the big political parties, all branches of all federal, state, and municipal government (including the military), and all universities, colleges, schools, kindergartens, and playgroups.

The local media made the point, leaving no doubt that their sympathies were with the protestors, and ours should be likewise if we know what’s good for us. The news announcers put on their most solemn it’s-painful-to-report-this-but-duty-demands faces and quoted the Southern Poverty Law Center scam (twice!) as if it were some kind of impeccable authority, like the International Standards Organization, on metrics of “hate.”
Paul’s remark got me wondering, though. What’s wrong with kids today? Don’t they want to vex their parents? Ă‰pater la bourgeoisie? Kick against the pricks? Be transgressive? ...

Minority Lifeguards in Phoenix Do Not Need to Know How to Swim

City Recruits Minority Lifeguards Even if They Can’t Swim 

Judicial Watch

In a staggering case of affirmative action gone wild, officials in a major U.S. city are actually recruiting minorities to be lifeguards at public pools even if they’re not good swimmers. It’s all in the name of diversity.   

You can’t make this stuff up. It’s a real-life story out of Phoenix, the capitol of Arizona and the nation’s sixth-largest city. It has more than 1.4 million residents and, among its official mottos is “value and respect” of diversity. This means “more than gender and race,” according to the city’s official website. It also encompasses “uniqueness and individuality” and embracing differences. “We put this belief into action to provide effective services to our diverse community.”

Evidently officials are willing to compromise those “effective services” at 29 public swimming pools spread throughout the city. To diversify the lifeguard force, Phoenix will spend thousands of dollars to recruit minorities even if they’re not strong swimmers, according to an official quoted in a news report. Blacks, Latinos and Asians who may not necessarily qualify can still get hired, says the city official who adds that “we will work with you in your swimming abilities.”

There’s a good reason the city is hiring lifeguards that can’t swim. Public pools are largely used by Latino and African-American kids, but most of the lifeguards are white and this creates a huge problem. “The kids in the pool are all either Hispanic or black or whatever, and every lifeguard is white and we don’t like that,” says a Phoenix official quoted in the story. She added that “the kids don’t relate; there’s language issues.”

How did it ever come to this? Competitive swimming is a sport dominated by whites. In fact, studies have found that blacks and Hispanics have lower swimming proficiency compared to whites. ...

Why Multiculturalism Will Self-Destruct (once white numbers fall below some threshold)


April 16, 2013 

In undertaking their grand scheme to deconstruct “whiteness” and usher in a multicultural paradise, the greatest oversight the liberal establishment makes is the refusal to foresee the rejection of minority races to uphold egalitarianism once whites become a minority.

This oversight, in turn, reveals a truly astonishing  state of collective cognitive dissonance. How can liberals not be aware of this glaringly conspicuous error in the contemplation of demographic projections? Furthermore, how can purportedly educated adults be unable to make the next logical extension of thought in considering what unbelievably tragic results will come from this demographic shift?

That which binds together the brittle house of cards that is egalitarianism is an artificial structure of laws, a massive cultural reprogramming, tireless public service announcements, lip service by the cultural elite, and relentless social ostracizing of dissidents, among other things. The fact remains that the progressive movement must have all of the methods of social conditioning running simultaneously with threats of violence and lawsuit to hold back the deluge of inherited tribal instincts that lie dormant and waiting. What allows this structure to remain is the effectiveness of white rule of law, and our willingness to support these measures.

As these structures corrode or their enforcement can no longer be guaranteed, the entire system will face an enormous collapse. The chaos that will ensue will force Americans not only to recognize the reality of biodiversity, but also to empirically understand the “diversity is strength” multicultural deception. ...

Appreciating the Great Gray Owl, Its Plight & the Fine Central Sierra Environmental Resource Center (CSERC)

Death of Great Gray Owl in Yosemite underscores plight of species
CSERC Newsletter


Photo J. Medley

 This summer, a Yosemite Park report underscored how challenging it is for the rare great gray owl to survive with so many threats to the species.

    The focus of the report was a female owl that was at least 8-years-old, since a research team had banded her as a mature adult in 2007.  She was highly productive - nesting and raising young five times in the last seven years.  As the report noted, this was impressive because great gray owls typically only nest when the level of small mammal prey is highly abundant.  This female successfully incubated, defended, and raised nine juvenile owls, including two in the spring of 2012.

     The success of this owl was especially notable because only very persistent females are successful at raising young.  From hatching to fledging, juvenile owls need care for two months.  The female spends one full month of that time almost entirely stationary, incubating the eggs high up in a broken top of a tree where she is fully exposed to rain, wind, or snow.  The Yosemite report listed this female as the most productive female owl documented to date in the Park.

 Sadly, the reason this report was publicized was because this impressive great gray owl was stuck and killed by a vehicle traveling on Highway 41 in the Park.  Not only did her death leave behind her two juveniles that then became the total responsibility of her mate, but her loss was also a blow to the small population of owls struggling to survive in the local region.  There may be only 150 to 200 great gray owls in all of California.  Park Service and Forest Service scientists have documented more than a dozen great gray owls killed by vehicles just in the past 10 years.  Vehicle mortality adds to other threats such as predation, severe weather events, degraded meadow habitat from livestock grazing, lack of prey, and disturbance by birders trying to get too close.

Violent Black Mobs: Philly Chicago Utica Jacksonville St Louis Wilmington Greenville Grand Rapids Peoria Springfield Newark Boston Brooklyn

See if your home town is on this list of notorious cities

Colin Flaherty, WND

Welcome to the new normal: Large-scale black mob violence is busting out in Philadelphia, Chicago, Utica, Jacksonville, St. Louis, Wilmington (Delaware), Greenville (South Carolina), Grand Rapids, Peoria, Springfield (Ohio), Newark, Boston and Brooklyn.
All in the last three weeks.
Police say they are baffled. Others say it is a regular meteorological event: “Large crowds and fights are not uncommon in the city in the warm weather,” said the ABC affiliate in Philadelphia.
The latest example of the new normal took place Tuesday in Philadelphia: 200 black people on the streets of the downtown financial district: fighting, vandalizing, rampaging, refusing to disperse, tossing bottles at police. It began at 4 p.m. and took police 90 minutes to restore order.
At the epicenter of the violence, an employee of Wendy’s said no one was surprised.
“It usually happens when the weather breaks,” Lakia Garrick told the local Fox affiliate. “They come in here and go crazy. It was really expected.” ...
Kevin McBryan told KSDK TV news that racial violence in St. Louis is not hard to document: “I witnessed ‘flash mobs’ running thru VP fairs sucker punching white people on 3 different occasions.” ...
This practice is version of racial violence often called the Knockout Game and many say it originated in St. Louis. A local judge recently said that one person alone was responsible for more than 300 cases of the Knockout Game.
These racial attacks, and more than 500 others in 90 cities around the country, are documented in book “White Girl Bleed a Lot: The return of racial violence and how the media ignore it.” ...
In Chicago, one week before that, 500 black people rampaged through the upscale shopping district known as the Magnificent Mile. They destroyed property, assaulted at least one police officer, sent one other person to the hospital with injuries.
Local media referred to members of the violent mob as “mischievous teens.” ...

How Did Canadians Lose Freedom of Speech?

Paul Fromm on the Demise of Free Speech in Canada

Kevin MacDonald - Occidental Observer - 4/13/2013
Paul Fromm, a pro-White activist who writes for his CAFE (Canadian Association for Free Expression) website, has an article on a recent ruling by the Canadian Supreme Court that once again indicates the power of the cultural left at the highest reaches of Western societies ”The Whatcott Decision – A Grim Day for Christians and Freedom of Speech“). The case involves a $15000 fine (plus court costs likely to be north of $150,000) imposed on an evangelical Christian who distributed leaflets containing criticism of homosexuality based on Biblical teachings. Some excerpts and comments:
The decision is pure cultural Marxism. It reflects the triumph of *Frankfurt School* social science which has captured most Western universities. While economic communism collapsed and was defeated, cultural communism was spread by the *Frankfurt School*. Basically, it sees the world divided up into two classes: oppressors – those would be White Christians, and especially sexually healthy White males – and the oppressed – those would be women, homosexuals, Jews, and certain other racial minorities. To overthrow the “oppressors” and to establish universal equality – not of opportunity but results – the *Frankfurt School* targeted loyalty to family, country and religion. There began a concerted campaign of “deconstruction” whereby political heroes, cultural heroes – the dismissal of traditional English literature as the writing of dead, White males – and traditional Christianity were mocked and attacked. These ideas have captured the upper echelons of Canada’s judiciary and bode poorly for freedom of speech.
The Whatcott decision holds that in human rights cases:
· Truth is no defence;
· Intent is no defence;
· No harm needs to be proven to have been caused to a “vulnerable” minority;
· A minority is designated as “vulnerable” not because of any evidence – the court admits concrete evidence is often lacking, but on the mere say-so of a human rights commission or court;
· Christians are not protected from hatred as they are not a “vulnerable minority.”

New York, New York! The city where corruption never sleeps!

The Big Rotten Apple

by Gavin McInnes - Taki's Magazine - April 12, 2013

Examining New York politics is like dipping a ladle into the sewer: Any random sampling will yield nothing but toxic shit water.

New York City’s 2013 mayoral election is seven months away, but the stench of New York politics is already intense enough to make you gag. ...

     So New York City is not quite the Dinkins 'gorgeous mosaic' after all? We can only wonder what the corruption level will be when the Third World completely takes over. When others commenting here talk about how white New York City is today, please keep in mind the silent modifier: temporarily.

     Also when it comes to NYC, you have the complication of the power of the Jewish community, which at least for a couple thousand years has seen any white gentile society, by its very nature, a deadly threat, and therefore must be divided, diluted and destabilized at every turn. Of course they were the key power source behind the US opening the floodgates to the Third World in 1965. 

     Due to US demographic changes, all 'red', or more conservative, states will eventually become blue states, electing Democrats. When I grew up outside of Los Angeles, it was mostly a white conservative place, with a white conservative mayor. Yes, there was a liberal Hollywood and a head-in-the-clouds Berkeley, but this was rarely enough to swing state elections, much less dominate the state. 

     Now, barring some freak accident, like a some cataclysmic split among Democratic candidates, LA will forever only elect liberals. Not because liberals took over, but because the US has a federal government that has declared war on people of European heritage and Western civilization. And California for almost five decades, since the flood of in-migration began, including chain migration, repeated amnesties, etc, has been at the foot of Mexico's main off-ramp. And these and other incoming peoples from the Third World mostly vote Democrat.

     Even New England, just like Nebraska or Tennessee, now has growing colonies of vibrant refugees. But, amazingly, nightmarishly, the refugee flood is a whole separate event from the main immigration tsunami. When it comes to refugees, private groups, like Catholic Charities, sponsor them and then dump these people on hard pressed local communities, which all of a sudden find they must cope with gang warfare and schools needing to teach kids who are speaking dozens of exotic languages.

     When, say, Billings, Montana becomes overrun with nonwhites, it will elect liberals. It isn't the other way around. Of course then liberals, after being elected in increasing numbers by increasing numbers of nonwhites, speed up the process, by favoring amnesties, establishing sanctuary cities, redistributing the wealth, etc. That is why most nonwhites vote for them in the first place. 

     The fun part is that nonwhite Democrats will eventually toss out their white Democratic leaders. Why share the spoils of power with hated whitey? Still, as all Western nations sink into the third-world swamp, that will be of cold comfort to the few surviving whites.

Enoch Powell Runaway Third World Immigration Peter Hitchens & 'Crocodile Tears'

Peter Hitchens’s Show of Guilt: Enoch Powell Was Right

Kevin MacDonald - Occidental Observer - 4/10/2013
Google Images
Now that Britain has been utterly transformed to the point that turning back the multicultural assault and reclaiming the traditional British nation would be cataclysmic, we are treated to some hand-wringing in the mainstream media. In his “How I am partly to blame for mass immigration” Peter Hitchens writes that when he was a Trotskyite supporting as much immigration as possible,
it wasn't because we liked immigrants, but because we didn't like Britain. We saw immigrants – from anywhere – as allies against the staid, settled, conservative society that our country still was at the end of the Sixties.  Also, we liked to feel oh, so superior to the bewildered people – usually in the poorest parts of Britain – who found their neighbourhoods suddenly transformed into supposedly ‘vibrant communities’.  If they dared to express the mildest objections, we called them bigots.
Revolutionary students didn't come from such ‘vibrant’ areas (we came, as far as I could tell, mostly from Surrey and the nicer parts of London). We might live in ‘vibrant’ places for a few (usually squalid) years, amid unmown lawns and overflowing dustbins. But we did so as irresponsible, childless transients – not as homeowners, or as parents of school-age children, or as old people hoping for a bit of serenity at the ends of their lives. When we graduated and began to earn serious money, we generally headed for expensive London enclaves and became extremely choosy about where our children went to school, a choice we happily denied the urban poor, the ones we sneered at as ‘racists’.What did we know, or care, of the great silent revolution which even then was beginning to transform the lives of the British poor?

. . .
