Unemployment Pain Gets Media Attention Now -- but Will Joblessness Be Highlighted in 2014 Amnesty Debate?

Now that long-term unemployment benefits for over a million workers are about to end, the press is full of stories about Americans who cannot find jobs. It’s a fine opportunity for the liberal media to bash hard-hearted Republicans who don’t want to extend the program (which would require still more insane borrowing).

MSNBC went so far [...]

Sweden Gets Shantytown Diversity

Sweden has been remarkably generous in welcoming foreigners to settle in their nation, going so far as to invite all Syrian refugees to come and live there. Curiously, the offer came even after the days of foreigner rioting in Stockhom last spring, so the Swedes’ liberal urges are stubborn indeed. Plus, the poorly mannered newbies [...]

California's Subsidized Housing for Foreign Farmworkers Could Be Expanded

On Friday, I heard a radio report about “migrant” farmworkers who live in taxpayer-subsidized housing in Watsonville, one of 24 such facilities in California. The existence of specific welfare for foreign nationals is part of the “welcoming” attitude the state has toward foreigners, which liberals regard as a sign of their moral superiority.

The immigration status [...]

California: Hispanic Academic Failure Is Blamed on Realistic Teachers

In Mexifornia, the growing population of hispanic kids is still doing poorly in school compared with the palefaces. A recent meditation from the Associated Press implies that the problem is Low Expectations, neatly pinning the blame on teachers and society as a whole. No mention of non-scholarly cultures at home.

However, Asian kids who attend [...]

New York: Muslim Cabbies Practice Public Prayer Diversity

Public Radio International, aka PRI, is a media outfit that produces a half-hour program on the local NPR station called “The World”. It is quite the celebration of diversity, even more than the mother ship of NPR, if that is possible.

A recent item opined that “an amazing diversity” of Muslim taxi drivers in New York [...]

Indio High School Tests All Students and Staff for Tuberculosis

The city of Indio (population 76,036 in 2010) in southern California is located about a hundred miles north of the Mexican border and has plenty of diverse influence from that precinct.

Indio High School recently showed up in the news because of a student being diagnosed as having tuberculosis and 45 others testing positive for exposure.

The [...]

Pew Poll: Exemption from Deportation Is More Important to Illegals Than Citizenship

Recent research shows what has been obvious for a long time — many illegal aliens don’t want to join the American community but care only about being able to work here and make money without being repatriated. Unobstructed job thievery is Job #1!

Even among legal immigrants, a sizable number do not want to become American [...]

Bulgarians Aren't Pleased with the Flood of Syrian Refugees

A giant crowd of Syrian refugees has reached Europe, safe from the bombs and shooting at home, that’s the good news for them. The bad news is that at least 11,000 have gotten to Bulgaria, Europe’s poorest nation which is not prepared to be welcoming.

The American media is frustrated about the Syrian situation because the [...]

Apple CEO Regards Amnesty for Lawbreakers as Morally Correct

One might think that the top executive of one of the world’s premier companies would appreciate the rule of law as necessary to conducting business, but not so much for Tim Cook (pictured), the successor to Steve Jobs.

Perhaps he is just using the morality dodge because he doesn’t want to say that multi-millionaires depend on [...]

Poll: Islam Fundamentalism Is Common in Europe

According to the liberal pro-diversity establishment, the true Islam is a “religion of peace” which has been hijacked by a small minority of extremists to commit numerous acts of terrorist violence. Elites further cling to the belief that Muslims residing in the West have assimilated to modern values.

Maybe not so much, if a recent poll [...]

Victim Visa Quickly Reaches Limit

This year’s allotment of 10,000 U visa for crime victims has been used up since the visas opened up in October, so naturally the liberal open-borders types thinks America needs more additional slots for the fraud magnet category. Most of the U visas go to illegal aliens with the only qualification being claims of victimhood, [...]

France Reconsiders Assimilation -- and Threatens Its Own Identity

One step forward, two steps back. Maybe. France is thinking that the project of requiring Muslim immigrants to integrate into French society is just too hard and perhaps the authorities can just redefine the problem away. However, the surrender to insistent Muslim demands to remake France into a sharia-compliant country would be a fundamental change [...]
