Below is Senator Jeff Sessions‘ response to Friday’s terrible unemployment report which showed only 88,000 new jobs were added to the economy, about half the average of the last few months. Plus, the labor force participation rate dropped to 63.3 percent, the lowest since 1979 (the Carter administration). Nearly 90 million Americans older than age 16 [...]
The government suits are doing cartwheels in California for a rather pathetic milestone — the state’s unemployment level has fallen below 10 percent for the first time in over four years. The official unemployment rate is 9.8 percent, second worst in the country, yet economic pundits declare things like, “California’s economy is growing and is [...]
I was sorry to read of the death of Maria “Masha” Sergeyevna Rumyantseva, 18, in Yellowstone Park last Thursday. The Russian woman apparently was on a rock ledge that gave way, and she fell 400 feet down the canyon. She was exploring on her first day in the park, where she had come to work [...]
Liberal economist Paul Krugman didn’t make much news with his pronouncement on Saturday that our current downturn is really a Depression. Presumably the Opravda media didn’t think the remark met pre-election guidelines.

America’s young college graduates are having a hard time finding jobs in the long-lasting recession. Many are saddled with a mountain of debt but few prospects to pay off that burden and get on with their lives. Some even move back into their parents’ homes.
Gallup pollsters dug up some ugly numbers for April:
Gallup: 1 [...]
In an economy where at least 14 million Americans are officially unemployed, the last thing we need in a new visa program admitting more legal immigrants to compete against jobless citizens for scarce jobs.
But certain members of the Senate think that additional thousands of foreign workers would be a swell idea.
Sadly, Senator Scott Brown (R-Massachusetts), [...]
Fox News sent reporter Griff Jenkins to Alabama to see how things are working out with the partial implementation of the newish immigration law.
Of note is a law enforcement officer’s recitation of improvements in the town of Albertville: a great reduction in the number of automobile accidents, a reduction in the impounds of vehicles [...]
The ICE removal of 200 illegal alien workers from Pacific Steel in Berkeley has been an opportunity for the liberal media to show its heartfelt empathy with illegal alien job stealers.
In December, the local ABC affiliate showed up to agree that’s it’s unfair to send the aliens packing right before Christmas: “Kicking these workers to [...]
Devotees of excessive immigration are not dissuaded by a mere historic economic breakdown leading to the unemployment of 14 million plus Americans, with the ensuing home foreclosures, divorces, families living in cars and general human suffering. The Census informs us that one in two Americans are now poor or low income.
Today’s example of extreme immigration [...]
The State Department’s program of admitting thousands of foreign college students on the J-1 visa program has been a stab in the back to young Americans looking for a job in a toxic employment environment. The current youth unemployment rate is the highest since World War II, and an August BLS survey reported that more [...]
The North American Free trade Agreement (NAFTA) was signed into law by President Clinton in late 1993. It was sold by globalists of both parties as a job generator for Americans, but instead whole industries moved to Mexico for the cheaper labor, and a US trade surplus became a trade deficit to Mexico’s benefit (e.g. [...]
In Texas’ largest city, construction workers are nearly all hispanics, but not because building is job Americans won’t do. On the contrary, Mexicans have somehow taken over those jobs and keep citizens out while demanding bribes (mordida in Spanish) of their countrymen. A man who wants a job has to pay a bribe just to [...]
