Among the top worst ideas for America is to make Spanish-speaking, welfare-addicted, deeply corrupt Puerto Rico a state. Some Republican Presidential candidates — Marco Rubio, Jeb! Bush and Ben Carson — are strong proponents, as noted in a recent Fox News report about the territory’s money troubles:
MARCO RUBIO: I support statehood if that’s what they […]
I happened to click on a French news channel on Friday morning and saw Paris church-goers having their bags checked to enter their cathedral — such is the state of danger in France nowadays emanating from its hostile Muslim residents. Is there any public policy idea in the history of the world worse than Muslim […]
Perhaps stung by news reports of immigration non-enforcement, the White House has a clever scheme to strike back at the friends of sovereignty: it will deport photogenic sympathy-evoking families with cute kids, rather than violent criminals with gang tattoos. Jose the gangster gets to stay! Then the Obama crew will blame border defenders as meanies […]
It’s not exactly news that deportation is a lost art under the open-borders Obasma regime. But the Washington Times had an interesting stat-fact in its front-page story on Wednesday: the chance that an illegal alien gets deported is just one is 164. How does that compare with getting struck by lightning, I wonder…
A Rasmussen poll […]
According to the all-encompassing religio-political system known as Islam, a “Hijrah” is immigration with the intention of converting the population of the new country to that belief.
Robert Spencer of JihadWatch explains Hijrah this way:
To emigrate in the cause of Allah – that is, to move to a new land in order to bring Islam there, […]
One reason cited for Germany’s excessive welcome of sketchy, potentially dangerous Syrians is the need for new workers to keep the factories humming. Der Spiegel reported, Rx for Prosperity: German Companies See Refugees as Opportunity, noting that the German population is “shrinking” and the nation faces a labor shortage.
Is it not odd that Germany doesn’t […]
Welcome to the New Normal (jihad-style) in America, where daily life is increasingly constrained by safety concerns as never before because of Washington’s policy of Muslim immigration. The latest victim is the theme park, a popular family activity that remains somewhat affordable. But the new security measures, such as metal detector screening, will certainly add […]
Thursday’s Washington Post included an above-the-fold photo and story about the continued influx of “unaccompanied” children across Obama’s open border.
If it weren’t for the increased concern about security due to the jihad attacks in the past few weeks (Paris and San Bernardino) there would certainly be a lot more attention paid to the border chaos.
Do Republican Congressional leaders think nobody will notice the monstrosity that the Congress has created in the omnibus federal spending legislation?
One element of the bill would effectively quadruple the number of H-2B foreign workers for blue-collar non-farm jobs that millions of Americans need. At a time when the labor force participation rate is only 62.5 percent […]
A Pew study (The American Middle Class Is Losing Ground) released on Wednesday found that the number of Americans living in a middle-class household had fallen to below half.
That’s a major event, because America is supposed to be a middle-class nation, not like backward countries such as Brazil where the great majority of people are […]
There’s been a lot of unfounded shrieking over the past week about Donald Trump’s policy suggestion that Muslim immigration be paused until the government can get a grip on who is entering our country. Many on the left (and GOP!) think that it’s “racist” and unconstitutional to block members of western civilization’s historic enemy.
Prof. Jan […]
Diversity ideology — the belief that all cultures are equal (despite daily evidence to the contrary) — certainly creates dangerous, even suicidal public policy. Today’s disturbing example was the Senate Judiciary Committee’s vote in favor of an amendment from Senator Leahy to prohibit the barring of any would-be immigrant on religious grounds.
The amendment was meant to […]
