Customs deriving from a desert religion can be inconvenient. The Islam holiday of Ramadan requires Muslims to fast from dawn to sundown for a month, which can put a crimp into normal behaviors like work.
Ramadan is determined by a lunar calendar, so it occurs in varying seasons over the years. This year’s observance starts around June […]
In the first three months of 2015, Europe saw the arrival of 185,000 illegal aliens, a big uptick from last year’s numbers. The increase is not surprising, because who among the one billion Africans wouldn’t like a better life in first-world Europe with its generous welfare policies? Word has gotten out that if you claim […]
According to the United Nations, June 20 is World Refugee Day, an event designed to draw attention to the many people cast adrift by war and calamity. That’s the idea at least. Many of the current crop of Africans fleeing to Europe are economic migrants — otherwise they wouldn’t be mostly young men under 30.
Nobody should be surprised that Democrat-run Mexifornia has enacted free-to-them healthcare for illegal alien kiddies, and Gov Jerry Brown is ever so pleased with his liberal generosity with the taxpayers’ money. “All in all, I think the people of California can be proud of the work that’s been done,” Brown said.
An estimated 170,000 immigrants 18 […]
The cultural crazy bell was rung pretty hard last week with the news that the a white woman, Rachel Dolezal, has been posing as black for years and used it to her advantage, such as becoming the President of the Spokane NAACP. The media has gone into overdrive, even hitting the front page of the […]
The Boston Globe had a rather eye-catching graphic on its Sunday front page illustrating the sort of diverse and dangerous criminals who are released by the government that is supposed to protect us citizens.
It’s not exactly news that public safety ranks near the bottom on the administration’s priority list. Its crime-friendly policies are so bad […]
A recent survey found that more than two-thirds of voters favor living in areas where citizens can be armed for self-defense. This is a traditional value, backed by the Constitution and a 2008 Supreme Court decision.
Americans Prefer Living in Neighborhoods With Guns, Rasmussen Reports, June 12, 2015
American Voters overwhelming prefer living in a neighborhood where […]
Saturday’s Wall Street Journal had an interesting front page story about Africans invading Europe by the thousands who are not fleeing war or even poverty, but are looking to grab a First World lifestyle. Meanwhile, Europeans pathetically rescue them and treat them like refugees when the correct response would be to turn back the boats as […]
A month ago, I wrote about the then-upcoming DARPA competition for robots, that had quite a demanding test for the machines (Humanoid Robot Competition Suggests Rapid Advance in Technology). DARPA is the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, an arm of the US Defense Department.
The diagram below shows the obstacle course of very challenging movements in […]
In 2012, the FBI arrested two Pakistan-born brothers for plotting to bomb New York City, a popular target among diverse jihadists. They pleaded guilty to charges in March and on Thursday received the maximum prison sentences.
Below, Pakistani natives Raees Alam Qazi, 22, and brother, Sheheryar Alam Qazi, 32, face decades in prison.

The latest scheme from the Obama administration is to force diversity upon Americans at the neighborhood level using housing regulations and HUD money. Living around people you find amenable will no longer be permitted because the government will decide whether your community is diverse enough, and bureaucrats will adjust according to liberal tyranny, er values. […]
About a month ago, I wrote about an “all-robot” factory in Red China which was actually only 90 percent automated. Imagine the workers’ relief!
Still, the highly automated factory sent a strong message: Chinese elites intend to maximize automation in order to eliminate jobs and they don’t try to pretend otherwise to the human workers.
Which is odd, […]
