Rasmussen Poll: 72 Percent of Voters Want Visa Overstayers Deported

Has Donald Trump made it socially acceptable to want illegal aliens sent home? Certainly 72 percent of voters seems a high polling number for a proposal that’s common sense in these politically correct times. For example, a 2014 Rasmussen poll found just 52 percent of respondents thought the government wasn’t aggressive enough in deportations, a kind of milquetoast statement with barely half agreeing.

So thank you, Donald, for striking a blow against the evil of political correctness, a leftist strategy to shut people up.

Back to visa subject, Senator Jeff Sessions noted in his visa overstay hearing earlier this month, “What we are witnessing is tantamount to an open border. Millions are free to come on temporary visas and no one is required to leave.”

So it’s good that the citizens are paying attention.

Poll: 72% demand Obama find, boot out immigrants who overstay visas, Washington Examiner, By Paul Bedard, January 27, 2016

With a majority of voters believing that visa overstayers are a danger to the United States, a whopping 72 percent want the administration to find and deport them, according to a new poll.

Amid concerns about the administration’s plans to let in thousands of Muslim immigrants from Syria, Americans are becoming worried about the impact they will have and the threat to security they pose. Just this month, the government reported that 500,000 visitors to the United States overstayed their visa and didn’t go home. There may be up to 5 million others in the U.S. Continue reading this article

Sweden: Asylum-Seeking Somali Is Charged in Murder of Social Worker

It’s not unusual for adult illegal aliens to claim to be minors because the treatment is far more generous for moochers accepted as kiddies. As a result, many “refugee youth” centers in Europe are filled with angry Muslim men and are violent places because of the clientele. One example: social worker Alexandra Mezher, 22, was stabbed to death by a male under her care earlier this week in a Swedish youth facility.

Below, Somali asylum seeker Youssaf Khaliif Nuur appeared in court to be charged with the murder of Mezher. Nuur is six feet tall and claims to be 15.

SwedenSomaliYoussagNuurKilledSocialWorkerMezher

It’s not just Europe stupidly believing lying adults who say they are minors: middle-aged illegal alien hispanics were allowed to enroll in a Massachusetts high school in 2014. The practice endangers genuine young people as well as staff.

Medical science can determine ages to a degree, but many countries are too politically correct to draw a line against refugee age fraud, even when old-fashioned eyeballing reveals the truth.

Below, the Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Löfven (in suit) poses with well developed residents of a child refugee center.

In other Swedish diversity news, The Local reports “Swedish asylum staff attacked by rioting youth” (Jan 28).

Staff at a home for refugee children in southern Sweden were forced to barricade themselves in a room on Wednesday night, after 19 young men in their care rioted and attacked them with weapons.

Kudos to the DM for calling BS on the Somali perp’s age. The Express did not, blurring the killer’s face and referring to him as a “boy.”

Six-foot tall, the ‘child’ accused of murdering a Swedish aid worker appeared in court today.

Somali-born Youssaf Khaliif Nuur, ‎charged with murdering Alexandra Mezher, 22, towered over his translator as he walked into the courtroom in Gothenburg.

She was knifed to death as she tried to break up a fight at the shelter for unaccompanied child refugees where she worked alone in charge of ten youths.

She died saving the life of another resident whom allegedly knife-wielding Khaliif Nuur was trying to kill, police sources said. Swedish prosecutors admit they do not know if Somalian Khaliif Nuur, supposedly aged 15, is his true identity.

Psychology graduate Miss Mezher had warned her mother she ‎was caring for ‘big powerful guys’ aged up to 24 in the shelter for children aged 14 to 17. Continue reading this article

Immigrant Senders Dread a Trump Presidency

Immigrant-sending nations have a problem with Donald Trump and the possibility that pushing their unskilled persons and criminals into stupid-generous America may shrink. They are miffed that Obasma’s open borders could shut to a degree, leaving some with a decreased remittance haul of fewer billions of dollars. (The United States is the major remittance-sending country, with $56 billion strip-mined in 2014 by immigrants and illegal aliens.)

The Washington Times did a world roundabout, gathering up quotes from interested persons (mostly critical) that ranged from angry to downright insulting.

For example, Dubai entrepreneur and television celebrity Mohamed Parham al Awadhi remarked:

“Look at flourishing cities like New York or San Francisco and how communities have lived together since their foundation. Middle Eastern, Asian, African, European and Latin American immigrants and refugees are not new phenomena. They’ve been assimilating with U.S. culture and living side by side with their fellow Americans.”

Funny, I remember Muslims’ effect on New York City differently.

On September 11, 2001, 19 Muslim jihadists from abroad killed nearly 3,000 Americans using hijacked passenger plane suicide attacks on New York and Washington.

9:11AttackTwinTowers

Naturally, immigrant workers (who are attractive to employers because they work cheap) sniffed about their hurt feelings and job insecurity. So sad.

The one positive voice was Geert Wilders who warns against Muslim immigration because of national security concerns. No surprise there.

Donald Trump proving a primary concern around the world, Washington Times, January 26, 2016

Advocates decry ideas on immigration

As he has surged to the top of the polls in the Republican presidential primary race, Donald Trump has targeted Muslims, Mexicans and Asians as threats to national security and the economy.

Around the world, they don’t always appreciate it.

“Trump’s comments only propagate a perception of migrants and Mexicans that I know is not true and that outrages me,” said Nancy Landa, a member of Los Otros Dreamers, a Mexican advocacy group for deportees.

To an unusual degree world leaders and foreign populations appear to be monitoring closely the ins and outs of the American primary season, and the clear focus of much of the fascination is Mr. Trump and his unexpected success to date in the GOP primary. The Donald has already been the subject of parliamentary debate in Britain on whether he should be banned from the country for his inflammatory rhetoric, and foreign leaders find themselves forced to prepare their talking points when asked about prospective relations with a Trump administration.

Pressed recently on CNN for his thoughts on Mr. Trump’s call for a temporary ban on all Muslim travel to the U.S., Jordan’s King Abdullah took the traditional diplomatic exit ramp: “You’re into an election cycle, so I don’t think it’s fair for you to ask a foreign leader to express his opinion on candidates in your country running for election.”

But the restrictions don’t hold for foreign pundits, parliamentarians and ordinary citizens observing from afar one of the more disruptive U.S. campaigns in recent memory.

Unsurprisingly, the current gathering of international heavyweights at the Davos World Economic Forum has not been kind to Mr. Trump or his agenda opposing trade deals, freer immigration and open borders.

“I’d be happier with a more welcoming integration,” Chilean Finance Minister Rodrigo Valdes told the Reuters news service recently. “It is uncontroversial to say that integration of markets, of trade is a good thing, and this rhetoric does not help that.” Continue reading this article

Sweden: Police Flee Angry Mob in Refugee Facility, and Other Anarchy

Note the details in this story: first, 10 officers (a substantial number) were sent to a “refugee” center to rescue a boy who had been repeatedly raped and the social workers called for help to move him — just a another law enforcement chore in Europe’s New Normal of mass Muslim illegal immigration! But 10 police were not enough, and they had to run away because the new residents have no respect for the law in Europe and its representatives.

The civil police force just isn’t up to dealing with a full-on invasion of foreign hostiles created by politicians for sketchy reasons (like cheap labor or liberal do-goodery) that cannot possibly be worth the social convulsions now and to come in Europe.

In other diverse crime news, a Swedish social worker, Alexandra Mezher, 22, was stabbed to death by a “refugee” at a center housing foreign youth. But as Walid Shoebat observes, Sweden does not do physical age checking on persons claiming to be minors, so some alien youth are actually adults.

Below, the refugee center holding 14-to-17-year-olds in western Sweden where Mezher was killed.

Police officers flee angry mob in Swedish refugee center through back door, RT, January 26, 2016

A police patrol of 10 officers was forced to flee a refugee center in Sweden after being surrounded by a mob of violent migrants. Law enforcement officials had arrived to relocate a 10-year-old boy after reports of his repeated rape at the facility.

One of the officers described what had happened in a police report obtained by the Vestmanlands Läns Tidning newspaper.

“Even more people appeared behind us. I was mentally prepared to fight for my life. We were 10 police officers in a narrow corridor. And I hear someone yell that there is an emergency exit,” the officer said. Continue reading this article

America’s Senator Jeff Sessions Investigates the Open Borders Created by Visa Overstays

Last week the Senate Immigration Subcommittee held a hearing on temporary visas for vacations and such being abused when users never go home. It’s a great scheme for lawbreakers, since the administration makes no effort to deport them. Senator Sessions has published a summary of the hearing’s findings, posted below.

Isn’t an airplane ticket to Dallas less expensive than hiring a criminal coyote who might leave clients to die in the border desert? Are the stories of visa overstays not reported in Mexico to protect the incomes of people smugglers? It’s odd that millions more don’t invade this way.

Remember that an entry-exit visa system was a core recommendation of the 9/11 Commission for national security. Nevertheless, the government will spend billions of dollars on wasteful crap, but refuses to get serious about borders and safety.

Another example of visa overstayers are foreign students who drop out of their US college yet remain as residents. Two examples are the Kazakh students Azamat Tazhayakov (left) and Dias Kadyrbayev (middle) who hid evidence implicating their pal the Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev (right), pictured with him during a visit (or scouting mission) to New York’s Times Square.

Senator Sessions noted the lawlessness condoned by the administration in his opening statement for the hearing, titled Why is the Biometric Exit Tracking System Still Not in Place?

Following is the Sessions summary. You can also read less dense articles like 99 percent of illegal immigrants who overstay visas aren’t investigated (Washington Times, Jan 20) and Sen. Sessions: Visa Overstays Reveal ‘National Immigration Crisis,’ Open Border (Breitbart, Jan 20).

Summary of Key Findings from Subcommittee Hearing on Visa Overstay Crisis: ’Temporary’ Visa Has Become Permanent, January 25, 2016

WASHINGTON—U.S. Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL), Chairman of the Subcommittee on Immigration and the National Interest, released the following summary of Subcommittee findings from last week’s hearing on the visa overstay crisis and the Administration’s open-borders policy of not deporting temporary visitors and workers who illegally remain in the country:

  • The overstay report issued last week – which only addressed temporary nonimmigrant visitors for business or pleasure for one fiscal year – revealed that 527,127 of these individuals overstayed their visas or periods of unauthorized stay in FY 2015.  At the end of the fiscal year, 482,781 of these individuals were still in the United States, including 219 individuals from Afghanistan, 564 from Iran, 681 from Iraq, 56 from Libya, 1,435 from Pakistan, 440 from Syria, and 219 from Yemen.  And the report contained similar numbers from FY 2014.

Community Lynchings Are on the Uptick in Mexico

We see various reports that Mexico is progressing in education and expanding its middle class, with hopes that the country might be growing out of backwards culture.

But a front-page story in the Sunday New York Times shows the bad old days of mob lynchings are still ordinary and are even increasing because of “frustration.” (Apparently frustration justifies extra-legal community executions by unhappy brown people, according to the NYTimes.)

MexicoLynchingsFrustration-nytFPjan242016

Sunday’s report reminded me of a 2007 article of cultural criticism I wrote for Vdare.com, Top Ten Reasons Why the US Should Not Marry Mexico:

#7 Lynching remains a continuing practice.

In the 2001 book True Tales from Another Mexico author Sam Quinones mentioned in passing that lynching is not an unusual occurrence in Mexico, and his clippings file on extra-legal executions from 1994 until 2000 was three inches thick. One chapter in the book told the story of two salesmen whose crude behavior in the country village of Huejutla ended with townspeople lynching them in the town square with the belief that the pair were organ-snatching child kidnappers. . . .

Mexicans simply do not have the same belief as Americans that the law is central to the equitable functioning of a complex nation. It’s the Third World.

Sunday’s story was a similar scenario: two outsider businessmen arrived in a small town where they were thought to be child kidnappers, so they were killed.

Remember, Mexicans are the largest immigrant group in the United States because of our unfortunate geography.

As Frustrations With Mexico’s Government Rise, So Do Lynchings, New York Times, January 24, 2016

AJALPAN, Mexico — The lynching began around 7:20 p.m., not long after the brothers had finished conducting their final interviews on tortilla consumption.

Residents confronted them, mistaking the pair for kidnappers. The police confirmed that the men were, in fact, pollsters for a marketing company and whisked them to safety. Irate residents rang the church bells in the town square anyway, summoning hundreds.

The mob then stormed the arched doorways of the government center, set fire to its library and snatched the brothers from the police. Finally, a man in a motorcycle helmet calmly walked into the center of the frenzied crowd, doused the semiconscious brothers with gasoline and lit a match.

A grisly cellphone video of the episode played for days on local news media last fall, eliciting condemnation and hand-wringing. Officials blamed the crowd and rumors that kidnappers were taking children off the streets. One local official suggested that it was the opposition party making trouble.

But the people of Ajalpan had another explanation: Tired of government corruption and indifference, the mob fashioned its own justice, part of a longstanding problem that Mexican officials say is on the rise.

The killings raise difficult questions for Mexico, highlighting an alarming development: By some accounts, there were more public lynchings this past year than at any other time in more than a quarter-century. There were at least 78 lynchings last year in Mexico, more than double the number the previous year, according to data collected by Raúl Rodríguez Guillén, a professor and an author of the book “Mexico Lynchings, 1988-2014.”

The mob actions were born of a sense of hopelessness and impotence shared by many in Mexico, where 98 percent of murders go unsolved and the state is virtually absent in some areas. By some estimates, just 12 percent of crimes are even reported in Mexico, largely because of a lack of faith that justice will ever be served.

Such a void, taken to extremes, has found its resolution in violence. Continue reading this article

How Immigration Transformed London into an UnBritish City

There’s a new book about how the English capital has been turned into a third-world sewer by immigration, titled “This Is London: Life and Death in the World City” by Ben Judah.

The Financial Times has a review, where it chose a pull quote that reveals much about the state of diversity today:

“The drug dealer complains that ‘good help is so hard to find’. Everyone looks down on someone else.”

London is no longer majority white because of the Labour Party purposefully recruiting foreigners who would be more likely to vote liberal. Tony Blair and his leftist cronies acted as a fifth column to welcome historic enemies (Muslims) into Britain to undermine the traditional people — and they succeeded.

Below, burqas in London.

LondonBurqasIslamPerfectSign
As a result, the remaining native Britons can feel like strangers in the old neighborhoods.

The orderly British London shown in the library video below from the sixties is gone because of liberal immigration policies:

The book is a walkabout through London’s diverse underbelly, and the picture is bleak, to be kind.

How Labour turned London into a foreign city:, By Harriet Sargeant, Daily Mail (UK), January 22, 2016

Fewer than half the capital’s population are white British, gangsters from Somalia terrorise the suburbs and even the tramps are immigrants, reveals astonishing new book

An Afghan and I once broke into a small house in Peckham. I had met him while researching a report on immigration for the Daily Mail.

We were on a rescue mission. Inside the two-up, two-down property in South East London, every room was packed with beds, mattresses and migrants.

On the landing, grey and scarcely breathing, lay the man we had come to rescue from this awful place.

The other migrants who were there started to shout at us. Apparently, the sick man owed them and their trafficking gang money. We had to hustle him out fast.

I emerged shaken. I had glimpsed a London I did not know existed — one of Third World poverty, exploitation and criminality.

It is writer Ben Judah’s great achievement to reveal that hidden city in his new book, This Is London: Life And Death In The World City.

A young war correspondent, Judah examines his home city as the foreign metropolis it has now become

Since 2001, immigration has transformed the capital. More than half of Londoners are now not ethnically British.

As he says: ‘I was born in London, but I no longer recognise this city. I don’t know if I love the new London, or if it frightens me: a city where at least 55 per cent of people are not white British, nearly 40 per cent were born abroad and hundreds of thousands are living illegally, in the shadows.’

Who are these new Londoners? In order to find out, Judah immerses himself in the migrant world.

He spends a night with the Roma beggars who camp in the tunnels beneath Hyde Park. He stays in a doss-house in Barking, East London. He cajoles an astonishing array of migrants from across London to describe their lives.

Whether a mini cab driver who also washes dead bodies, a Romanian prostitute in a blonde wig, or a wealthy young African with bodyguards hired from his own tribe, they open up to Judah.

The quantity and authenticity of his interviews build up an irrefutable argument. Here, as opposed to what the Left is always telling us, are the real effects of immigration.

Immigration, Judah makes clear, has touched every aspect of life in London and utterly transformed it.

The English upper classes no longer inhabit the splendid townhouses in Mayfair. Suburbs such as Edmonton in the north of the city are no longer home to the aspirational, largely unionised, English working-class.

As for white, East End gangsters such as the Kray Twins, you will only find those in movies.

The same goes for the prostitutes who used to inhabit Soho. Even tramps, for goodness sake, are rarely English any more. Such is the level of liberal propaganda that we have largely remained blind to this startling transformation of our city.

Judah systematically maps these changes — the result of Labour relaxing immigration into the UK.

Left-wingers and the business establishment pat themselves on the back for creating an open city that welcomes the world. In fact, we have lost control of our borders and have no say who comes here.

This week, it emerged that Brussels is attempting to blackmail Britain by saying that if we don’t take as many as 90,000 migrants a year, we will not be able to send failed asylum seekers back to safe countries on the Continent.

Then came the story that a tribunal had ruled that a group of migrants in the Jungle camp in Calais had a ‘human right’ to join family members in Britain. It is a precedent that could have far-reaching implications.

Aside from legal rulings, the truth is that much of our immigration policy is now dictated by criminal trafficking gangs who make a fortune smuggling people into Britain — not our elected leaders and certainly not voters and taxpayers.

It is criminal gangs who decide who comes into the UK and in what numbers. They largely decide what happens to the migrants once they arrive.

In handing our immigration system over to them, we have allowed conditions of unimaginable squalor, misery and criminality reminiscent of Victorian times to take hold. Continue reading this article

Davos Meeting Focuses on Fourth Industrial Revolution, aka Automation

The World Economic Forum wrapping up on Saturday in Davos has made the future of employment a major focus, calling it the Fourth Industrial Revolution:

The Fourth Industrial Revolution, which includes developments in previously disjointed fields such as artificial intelligence and machine-learning, robotics, nanotechnology, 3-D printing, and genetics and biotechnology, will cause widespread disruption not only to business models but also to labour markets over the next five years, with enormous change predicted in the skill sets needed to thrive in the new landscape. This is the finding of a new report, The Future of Jobs, published today by the World Economic Forum.

The World Economic Forum has a thorough website, including a section titled Artificial Intelligence and Robotics, from which the article linked below is taken.

Below, robot arms by Nachi Robotic Systems work on the body of a car at the International Robot Exhibition in Tokyo. About 80 percent of car manufacturing work is now done by smart machines.

RobotArmsCarBodySideViewAutomation600

The WEF’s brief article provides a decent overview of what’s ahead, albeit somewhat sanitized. The social disruption will be enormous, and we are seeing the initial symptoms now. The situation of more than 90 million Americans not participating in the workforce has accumulated from decades of government-assisted immigration and outsourcing, with automation added in recent years.

The Gartner consulting firm (which forecast one-third of jobs will be automated by 2025) also warns of the consequences for society: “As the digital revolution kills jobs, social unrest will rise” (Computerworld, Oct 7, 2013).

With a largely jobless future looming, what possible excuse is there for Washington to admit millions more immigrants when there will be no employment for them? Immigration should be retired as an institution that is no longer appropriate, like rotary phones and homesteading.

If human jobs are indeed becoming obsolete, as experts suggest, then immigration should be recognized as likewise anachronistic.

What happens when robots take our jobs?, World Economic Forum, January 21, 2016

Technologies such as big data, advanced analytics, the internet of things, wearables, advanced robotics, learning machines and 3D printing are finding their way into factories.

Despite the sluggishness of change on today’s factory floors, this digital wave is slowly but surely revolutionizing manufacturing, contributing to major productivity enhancements and the emergence of innovative production paradigms that deliver more tailored and efficient solutions.

Needless to say, this transformation has profound implications for manufacturing employment, affecting everything from the size of the workforce, to the skillsets required and the locations of factories. Will this Fourth Industrial Revolution lead to a jobless future for manufacturing or will the “traditional” response of education and training allow workers to remain employable?

A factory with no employees?
According to Autodesk CEO Carl Bass, “The factory of the future will have only two employees: a man and a dog. The man will be there to feed the dog. The dog will be there to keep the man from touching the equipment.”

Indeed, from Jeremy Rifkin in the End of Work to Martin Ford in the Rise of the Robots, economists have been predicting that automation will make human jobs – at least as we know them today – obsolete in the not-too-distant future. In the United States alone, manufacturing jobs have fallen from 25% of the total in 1970 to approximately 10% today, as James H. Lee reminds us in his blog on the World Future Society website. Productivity and employment, which rose and fell in tandem until the early 2000s, now show an increasing gap, reflecting the fact that humans are being displaced by machines for many jobs.

Germany: Regensburg Considers Women-Only Sections on Buses Because Rapefugees

In Germany’s New Normal of violence caused by hundreds of thousands of misogynous Muslim men, European women are in danger just going about their normal lives. Women are warned not to go out alone at night and to dress modestly — it sounds like a perfect sharia Eurabia where women are kept out of the public square, as Islam demands.

Since the shocking New Year’s attacks on women in Cologne and other cities around Europe, the numbers of victims is being toted up in various categories:

The number of criminal complaints has already exceeded 750 and is still increasing, Die Welt reported. The total number of victims amounts so far to 883 with almost 500 of them having reported sexual abuse. (RT, January 18)

Regensburg is a city of 140,000 in Bavaria with a historic cathedral:

GermanyRegensburg

Other nations have used the strategy of separation to protect women from violent misogynist men: Mexico comes to mind, with its women-only buses in Mexico City.

But those are entire vehicles where piggy Mexican men are prohibited; Regensburg is considering designated sections of buses for women. But how will rapefugee Muslim men be kept away from German women? Will each bus have an armed guard? Apparently not, because the discussion concerns an appropriate color scheme, so the proper Regensburgers may be projecting their own orderliness on the lawless interlopers. Putting women in one section just makes targeting easier for allah’s gangsters. Regensburg needs to think this through and understand that they have been invaded by hostile illegal aliens.

The article following is translated from Die Welt:

Councillor brings “Lady-zones” to buses, Die Welt, January 19, 2016

In Regensburg it could soon enter city buses with separate “Lady-zones”. This discusses just the city council. The application was made in November, by a local politician – before the attacks in Cologne.

In order for women and girls to feel safe from sexual harassment, the Regensburg City council is discussing specially designed “Lady Zones” in its city busses. They are also imagining “Women only Taxis”.

Christian Janele of the Christian-Socialist (CSB) had turned in an application in November of 2015 – before the mass sexual assaults in Cologne took place. The city planning commission will discuss this issue on Tuesday.

Janele says that many citizens had expressed their concerns with him: “How will my daughter, how will my wife arrive home safely in the evenings?” These fears among the citizenry have to be taken seriously. Markings on the bus floors could establish safe zones, in which only women and children are allowed to be in. Additionally there should be offered women only taxis in which women drivers will bring female passengers to their destinations – and the city will subsidize the taxi fares. Heidelberg has had a similar project ongoing for years, says Janele.

It doesn’t have to be pink
On the social network Facebook, the Christian-Socialists have published a photo montage with a pink “Lady Zone” in a public bus. But the post adds that the safety zone doesn’t have to be pink. Any other color would be possible as well. Continue reading this article

Pennsylvania University May Drop Crusader Team Name

The Crusades and Crusaders get a lot of battering from the politically correct these days, including Susquehanna University which now wants to be more “inclusive,” because apparently they don’t want headchopping jihadists to feel left out.

And who can blame the university? No less of a person than President Obama bashed the original Crusaders as committing “terrible deeds” during the annual prayer breakfast in 2015:

OBAMA: “Unless we get on our high horse and think this is unique to some other place, remember that during the Crusades and the Inquisition, people committed terrible deeds in the name of Christ. In our home country, slavery and Jim Crow all too often was justified in the name of Christ.”

Jihad expert and author Robert Spencer (who is well informed about the period) remarked, “The Crusades were actually a late and small-scale defensive response to 450 years of Islamic jihad aggression.”

In General Dwight Eisenhower’s 1944 D-Day message to the troops, he characterized their efforts to free the continent of Europe from the Nazi jackboot as a Crusade. The word had positive connotations until the anti-civilization left inserted its hooks.

EISENHOWER: Soldiers, Sailors and Airmen of the Allied Expeditionary Force.

You are about to embark upon the Great Crusade, toward which we have striven these many months. The eyes of the world are upon you. The hopes and prayers of liberty-loving people everywhere march with you. You will bring about the destruction of the German war machine, the elimination of Nazi tyranny over the oppressed peoples of Europe, and security for ourselves in a free world.

Perhaps it is a hopeful sign that the image of Crusaders is reappearing in Europe, which is once again besieged by an evil foe.

Below, German patriots disinvite invasive illegal alien jihadists from Europe with a banner showing a Crusader.

Here is an article about the university brouhaha:

Pennsylvania university considers dropping its ‘Crusader’ nickname, Fox News, January 19, 2016

A Pennsylvania university is searching for a new mascot and nickname to replace its longtime “Crusaders” moniker, which the school says is “at odds” with its “values and commitment to diversity and inclusiveness.”

Susquehanna University is asking people to submit their top choices for a replacement by Jan. 25. The top contenders — which might include the Bobcarts or River Otters — will then be submitted to the university president, who will in turn present them to the school’s board of trustees, a university spokeswoman told FoxNews.com Tuesday.

The school’s board of trustees voted in October to replace the Crusader name, after consulting with alumni, students, faculty and staff.

The Crusader name, which was first used by a Philadelphia sports writer in 1924, was a reference to then-Susquehanna athletic director Luther Grossman’s “crusade” to bring integrity to intercollegiate athletics.

“Many critics of the term Crusader feel that connotations of the word — related to the medieval Crusaders who used violence in the name of religion — are at odds with the university’s increasing diversity and its commitment to embracing and respecting difference,” the school said in a statement obtained by FoxNews.com.

Davos Forecasts Five Million Jobs Lost to Automation in 15 Nations by 2020

The global thinkers at the World Economic Forum have produced a new report drilling down into the automation workplace revolution, which they call the Fourth Industrial Revolution.

The report focuses on world trends and has no specifics about the job losses of individual countries, at least that I could find in a brief search & skim of the paper, titled The Future of Jobs: Employment, Skills and Workforce Strategy for the Fourth Industrial Revolution.

It isn’t surprising to treat automation as a global phenomenon, because its effects are very similar throughout the industrialized world and in developing nations too, because of the decreasing price of robots. Every business tries to lower its costs, and so they all will use smart machines to survive.

Below, the Baxter model robot costs around $22,000, which makes it affordable for smaller businesses.

One interesting item is the forecast of a total loss of 7.1 million jobs, offset by a gain of 2 million new positions: that figure give an estimated ratio of old jobs destroyed to new jobs created. There are a number of cheerful public voices opining that the coming disruption will be minor and the new jobs will make up for the ones lost, but the Davos thinkers have come out with the pessimistic view, seeing severe job reduction as the net result.

For an example of that discussion, see Automation Debate: Will Smart Machines Disrupt the Economic Order or Not? where Martin Ford (author of Rise of the Robots) politely takes the negative, realistic side.

Finally, there is not a whole lot that can be done about technological unemployment, but the government should at least end immigration, a vestige of earlier centuries which needs to be put aside as being obsolete, along with homesteading. Workers should no longer to be imported because citizens will need all of the remaining jobs.

Robots and artificial intelligence will kill off five MILLION jobs by 2020 – and women will be worst hit, Daily Mail, January 18, 2016

Disruptive labour market changes, including the rise of robots and artificial intelligence, will result in a net loss of 5.1 million jobs over the next five years in 15 leading countries – and women will be worst hit, a major new study released at Davos has claimed.

The projection by the World Economic Forum (WEF), which is holding its annual meeting in the Swiss ski resort this week, assumes a total loss of 7.1 million jobs, offset by a gain of 2 million new positions.

Women will be the biggest losers as their jobs are often concentrated in low-growth or declining areas such as sales, office and administrative roles, the report said.

At the declining end of the labour market, the drivers of change identified by our respondents will heavily disrupt two of the job families most clearly dominated by women and men: Office and Administrative and Manufacturing and Production, respectively.

‘In short, as industries prepare to adapt to disruptive change the dynamics of the industry gender gap will be at the centre of many facets of the new employment landscape.’ Continue reading this article

FBI Screening for Syrian Refugees Is Proposed

The SAFE Act will be voted in the Senate this week (if it survives a Harry Reid blocking cloture) and the bill would require the FBI to screen refugees from Syria and approve them as being non-jihad. Members of Congress who have noticed the mess in Europe caused by barbarian Islamic refugees want to prevent similar violence here.

Senator Sessions held a hearing in October about screening refugees and he determined “We do not have access to any Syrian government database to learn the backgrounds of these refugee applicants.”

Below, naive Europe regrets having lost control of its borders with the unfriendly Muslim world, because foreigners have repaid kindness with violence and rape. New Years turned into a riot including hundreds of sexual assaults of German women in front of the iconic Cologne cathedral.

CologneNewYearsSexRiotNearCathedral

The best thing would be for Washington to end the refugee scam in this country altogether. The program is a total negative for Americans, all cost (including crimes like mass murder) and no benefit. If government must engage in do-gooder behavior, then additional support for refugee camps in the Middle East is a far more effective way to spend limited funds.

But without an attack of sanity in Washington, a slow-down strategy may be the best we can do for now.
