It was a surprise when House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Rogers announced last week that he would not seek reelection. After all, he has been a respected voice on national security even on liberal mainstream media and is popular in his Michigan district where he won his last election with 66 percent of the vote.
The current administration’s fondness for crime and criminals truly strains the imagination. Apparently the potential of importing more undocumented Democrats overrides normal precautions to protect public safety.
Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach appeared on Fox News Saturday morning to discuss the executive actions taken to undermine the role of Congress in legislating immigration laws, which [...]
Following a promise from the Presidente to make deportation more “humane”, the administration has decreed that “petty” criminals can benefit from Obama’s executive amnesty.
Who hasn’t seen this coming? More “humanitarian” deportations weren’t going to include better sandwiches for Pancho during his trip home: obviously enforcement standards had to fall lower.
But it’s worse than that: there [...]
No Pope has ever spoken to the Congress before, but the Speaker thinks that it’s fine to offer him a uniquely high honor (and violate the separation of church and state) even though the nation is still majority Protestant (52 percent, more than double the number of Catholics).
What is the purpose of the invitation? Is [...]
This doesn’t look good. Bob Goodlatte, powerful Chair of the House Judiciary Committee, is going to money-troll among the open-borders billionaires in the capital of the tech world.
He has done some good things, such as recently opposing asylum for Mexican cartel gangsters (not too hard, admittedly, but better than snoozing), but he also came out [...]
The press is full of stories about open-borders pests demanding more “humane deportations” (code for saying they want NO repatriations). The President appears amenable to going further. He used the occasion of an early St Patrick’s Day event to remark, “There’s no reason why we can’t do for this generation of immigrants what was done [...]
On Thursday, Bill Gates spoke at the American Enterprise Institute about his foundation’s efforts against poverty worldwide titled From Poverty to Prosperity (more details in his annual letter).
Mixed into his discussion of tax policy were his observations that smart machines were coming on strong and the effects on the labor market would be profound.
Following is [...]
In Washington, legislators are barraged by billionaires demanding an open door for cheap immigrant workers, from techies to dishwashers. But in the workplace, smart machines are increasingly performing complex tasks formerly done by human workers. That transformation is partially to blame for the jobless recovery, in addition to the administration’s business-unfriendly policies of course.
On Saturday, [...]
The question-and-answer format can be an effective explanatory tool. The Orange County Register presented a friendly Q-&-A with NumbersUSA’s Roy Beck in which he could calmly describe his organization’s beliefs and policies without the arm-wrestling one sees in many media interviews given by unfriendlies.
While the open-borders crowd tries to claim virtue with its simpering sob [...]
I’ve been getting uninvited e-mails from CPAC about its upcoming yak-a-thon conference, and the schedule of speakers looks pretty snoozeworthy. But what can you expect from an organization (American Conservative Union) that has consistently been too hidebound to grasp the growing threats of hostile Islam and open borders?
The ACU is quintessentially establishment conservative, but seems [...]
Powerful billionaires don’t like to take “no” for an answer when they insist upon cheaper labor for their money-making enterprises. Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg has a net worth of $30 billion, but he still wants to dump capable American workers for cheaper foreign ones. The latest foray is an ad with the usual litany of [...]
If the powerful of business and politics have their way, America will be burdened with a historical high percentage of immigrants.
As shown by Census figures for 2010, the United States is already headed for a record proportion of foreign-born, even without the monstrous Senate bill which doubles legal immigration and hands out millions of work [...]
