Economically Battered Youngstown Is Planned as a Location for Refugees

Refugee Resettlement Watch noted another batch of targets a couple days ago including one unlucky city: New refugee seeding site: Youngstown, Ohio. That community is particularly unsuitable to be burdened by needy and/or hostile foreigners: it was plunged into a local depression by the closing of the major steel mill in 1977 and never recovered.

Rasmussen Poll: Majority of Voters Believe Government Acts against Their Interests, Particularly in Trade Deals

The pundit class and the press generally were caught flat-footed about the success of Donald Trump, and before that, they bashed the Tea Party as racist and mean-spirited for wanting a restoration of Constitutional government, national sovereignty and other traditional values.

Trump Thumps the Great God Globalism

Quarter-Mile-Long Container Ship Docks at Los Angeles Port

Chinese Air Pollution There Spreads Here

The Los Angeles Times had an interesting front page graphic on Wednesday, showing that Beijing’s air pollution is many times that of the famously smoggy City of the Angels.

Anti-Outsourcing Businessman Is Featured in New Book
