The PBS Newshour has a chipper little story that begins with informing viewers about the fastest turkey tail lopper in a poultry processing plant in Huron, South Dakota — who happens to be a refugee. In fact, when Nyo Maung is on vacation, his supervisor says, the productivity of the place slows down.
Isn’t that heartwarming? You […]
Below is a rare local report about automation and its effects at ground level. It’s a 3-minute TV-news segment, but the piece does get the sense of general anxiety about the future of employment. One man sought retraining for a new computer-related career because automation was cutting into construction jobs. A recurring theme was that […]
Candidate Clinton thinks every foreign STEM graduate with an advanced degree should get a green card stapled to their diploma, immediately placing them in the front of the line for US jobs. How does that help American students who already struggle against cheapie foreigners flooding the STEM workers pool in this country?
It doesn’t. Hillary is […]
After years of complaints from taxpaying California parents that their qualified kids were not being admitted to state universities, a recent report found that numbers of foreign students has skyrocketed over the last decade. So much for government accountability in a one-party Democrat state.
At the prestigious UC Berkeley, shown below, 30 percent of the fall […]
In 2012, I reported about UC Berkeley’s office of diversity having a budget of $17 million because it seemed stunningly excessive, but they are pikers compared to the University of Southern California.
Now USC at least has the excuse of being a private university so taxpayers were not dinged by this monumental stupidity. Perhaps when word gets […]
Saudi Arabia has been in the news recently and in a bad way, in particular about how Washington covered up the Kingdom’s complicity in the 9/11 attacks on America. On April 10, Sixty Minutes presented 28 Pages, a segment about the classified section of a Congressional inquiry into 9/11 and the possible existence of a […]
How insane is a government policy that continues to import a tribe of people who resist assimilation and present a danger to the law-abiding citizens? Furthermore, that group — the Somalis — requires extensive expensive programs to keep the young male combatants from blowing up the place, and those programs don’t work. When an American […]
While our hidebound representatives in Washington DC continue to ignore the technological revolution increasing in the nation’s workplaces, the political leaders in Tennessee are stepping up. The state government recognized the problem, studied it and finally created a policy response in the form of an educational program. The nation’s leaders should do half as well.
Below, robots […]
The Golden State has been shirking its responsibility to educate young Californians by increasingly relying on non-residents’ higher tuition to keep the university budgets flush. All the major newspapers had front page stories on Wednesday about the State Auditor’s report finding admission standards were lowered for non-residents which kept out better qualified Californians. Auditor Elaine […]
After it became clear that Chancellor Merkel’s welcome to millions of Muslim foreigners has been a disaster that threatens all of Europe’s safety, the government is scrambling to look like it is doing something. First on the revised to-do list is to insist that newbies learn to speak German — so rapefugees will understand when Frauleins […]
The cast of characters for Obama’s final (!) State of the Union speech on Tuesday sounds like a Hollywood movie filled with oddball characters thrown together for an improbable adventure.
Diversity looks to be a main course, with an emphasis on the myth that even extreme cultures like hostile Islam enrich us, rather than shred America’s […]
A couple days back, Sky News reported about an ISIS jihad weapons lab which had been discovered from a captured video.
Here’s a discussion on Fox News with a British bomb expert:
GRETA VAN SUSTEREN: This is terrifying — ISIS University. Sky News uncovering video footage showing a very sophisticated training academy in Syria where terrorists are […]
