Documentary filmmaker Ami Horowitz has a small Youtube channel where he presents self-produced videos. In a recent piece, he interviewed Somalis residing in Minneapolis and asked them whether they prefer Islamic sharia to the American system.
Unsurprisingly, most would rather have head-choppy sharia law.
HOROWITZ: Do you feel more comfortable living under American law or do you […]
Here’s an item for the “They Keep Coming” file. Illegal aliens from Somalia and Pakistan and Ghana are traipsing through a rather hazardous Panamanian jungle to reach the first-world free stuff of Uncle Sucker. Among the dangers they face in their tropical transit are malaria, blood-sucking bats, snakes and carnivorous jaguars. But Obamaphones and food […]
I just got my copy of Rise of the Robots: Technology and the Threat of a Jobless Future delivered from Amazon (famous for its Kiva automated warehouses), and the package definitely looked machine-friendly. It was not an envelope, but two pieces of lightweight cardboard pressed together. So presumably the book about robots taking human jobs […]
Here’s a little intro to specific robots, each with their own abilities, based upon the writer’s visit to a robot conference. Of those, the OSHbot and Baxter have already been examined in these pages.
Below, Orchard Supply Hardware (OSH) has been moving forward with a greeter robot that can also direct shoppers to desired gizmos in the […]
An interesting item from PBS Newshour described an aspect of Islam’s inherent cruelty as reflected in the sharia version of adoption, if it can be called that. When a western couple adopts, the commitment is total just as if the child were the natural offspring. But what’s called adoption in Islam — “kafala” — actually resembles […]
Fox News’ resident expert on legal opinions of the courts discussed Tuesday’s decision of the Fifth Circuit to deny the administration’s request to lift a hold on Obama’s unconstitutional executive amnesty.
The judge appeared with Neil Cavuto for a chat about the law and politics. Unfortunately, it will be a chilly day in hell before the […]
Over in the Senate, some Democrats have called on Obama to resettle at least 65,000 Syrian refugees despite the obvious threat they pose to America’s safety.
There is no way to verify newbie Syrians as non-jihad — a lesson America should have learned from the would-be mass murderers Waad Ramadan Alwan and Mohanad Shareef Hamadi, Iraqis who […]
The New York Times is fascinated with the ongoing cultural squabble in San Francisco, where two liberal groups have squared off over territory. Hispanics residing in the Mission neighborhood are angry that young tech workers are moving into “their” turf and taking scarce and increasingly expensive housing. (See my VDARE.com article from a year ago […]
The PBS Newshour had a segment on the automation threat to jobs this week, a good sign that the workplace revolution is becoming more widely recognized and discussed.
On the down side, I’ve seen almost no debate of how the economy is supposed to work when human workers are rapidly becoming obsolete, from strawberry pickers to […]
Politics sometimes seems like musical chairs, where politicians take positions on account of the situation of the moment and then remain in place despite all reason.
For example, Democrats oppose trade deals that cause Americans to lose jobs but don’t mind flooding the nation with millions of excess immigrant workers taking citizen jobs. On the other […]
Law-abiding souls who don’t want to cheat their way into America but instead immigrate the legal way are being punished for their honesty: Obama’s illegals have gone to the front of the line, so legal folks have to wait longer. A Fox News report shows an American man with an Argentine wife who is stuck […]
Automation expert Martin Ford appeared on NPR Monday to discuss his new book, “Rise Of The Robots: Technology And The Threat Of A Jobless Future“. (You can read an except from the book on my blog Robotics Expert Martin Ford Explains the Automated Hamburger and Other Job-Killing Smart Machines.)
The audio file is posted below; you […]
