Monday’s San Francisco Chronicle has an article that’s an immigration two-fer. The paper’s front page shows an Indian immigrant kid playing cricket in an East Bay suburb, because what foreigner wants to play baseball in America any more? Assimilation would be too much to ask of today’s diverse global citizens, and anyway it might hurt […]
Today’s liberal campuses would make Pol Pot feel comfortable, given their extreme enforcement of leftist dogma, where no deviation is permitted. Using verboten phrases like “illegal alien” can bring punishment for students, who are encouraged to engage in classroom discussion, but only with approved opinions. Colleges chatter endlessly about the importance of racial diversity, but they […]
It’s easy to visualize the robot aspect of the smart machine revolution, with post-human manufacturing happening more and more. We are accustomed to images of big robot arms constructing automobiles with no people in sight, but there is also plenty of technological unemployment that is being created by computers. Some white collar professions are just as […]
Donald Trump’s un-consultantized speech about political matters has had many positive results, most particularly honesty about immigration and borders. Also high on the list of accomplishments is his effective mauling of political correctness.
One measure: a late-August poll from Rasmussen found 71 percent of Americans believe political correctness is a problem. By comparison, a similar question […]
I learned something by reading a Wednesday front-page New York Times story, that technology and smartphones fuel the current multitude of illegal immigration from Africa, Asia and the Middle East. The internet helps any Mohammed from Senegal to Kabul to make his way across thousands of miles of foreign territory to the welfare offices of his dreams […]
A new robot prototype from a Japanese company looks like another step toward a completely automated warehouse, where no human workers are necessary.
The machine has two arms and can pull items off a shelf and place them into a box.
This robot is an advance over the Kiva warehouse system used by Amazon to speed its […]
This report from Down Under probably describes the situation in all first-world societies: colleges and trade schools are cranking out increasingly useless degrees and skills that will not serve the economic interests of those who work for years to get them. The workplace is undergoing fundamental change because of automation, robotics and computers, but hidebound […]
Chancellor Angela Merkel has big resettlement plans for Germany, whether the German people want 800,000 mostly Muslim illegal aliens or not. An uprising happened in the town of Heidenau over the weekend because of government plans to deposit 600 foreigners of unspecified origin, although one Afghan newbie was quoted in a press account.
News reports say […]
Watching snotty globalist Fareed Zakaria is generally a waste of time, but the segment of his CNN show with writer Derek Thompson was informative because it discussed automation’s threat to ordinary American jobs. Thompson wrote the May Atlantic article about the subject, A World without Work, that got some attention.
The only clip I could find was […]
It’s disconcerting to see Europe turning up the speed on its self-inflicted destruction by allowing even more Islamic aliens to enter. Muslims keep coming because Europe keeps admitting them, rather than turn them back at the borders or at sea as Australia has sensibly done. Normal warfare in Islam societies is not Europe’s problem and Europeans are […]
Donald Trump welcomed Senator Sessions to the Mobile, Alabama, podium during Friday’s campaign rally, where the crowd responded with pleasure at the appearance of the hometown hero, who ran unopposed during his last election. Sessions spoke a few words of greeting from Mobile and also appreciation for Trump’s embrace of the vital immigration enforcement issue.
It’s depressing that America is so crippled by liberalism and political correctness that the anchor baby scam of invasion-by-birth continues and is getting worse. Trump’s declaration that as President he would end it has made a number of heads explode because the idea of America as world welfare provider accords with globalist redistribution ideology.
Breitbart reports […]
