New Improved Robot Does a Backflip

How fast is robotic technology moving along? To get an idea, watch a new video of the Atlas robot hop onto boxes and do a perfect backflip. Amazing.

For comparison, see the variety of robots falling over in the 2015 DARPA Robotics Challenge. The video is funny, but the improvement in the two years from then […]

Fewer Foreign Students Attend US Colleges

The Associated Press reports that fewer foreigners are coming to the US to attend college, and the news organization apparently regards the decrease as a negative thing. Certainly many Californians would see having fewer foreign students on campus as a big plus, especially if there were also fewer out-of-staters — both groups that must pay […]

Tucker Carlson Notes the Demanding Mob of Illegal Aliens in Senate Office Building

A gaggle of illegals and their pals swarmed Capitol Hill on Thursday where they insisted on a big amnesty for DACAs and Dreamers and all their cousins ad infinitum.

The scene looked pretty rowdy, verging on unsafe, as a large crowd of angry illegal aliens loudly demanded citizenship privileges to which they have no right.

Who’s in […]

Look for Smart Machines to Change Work Substantially within Five Years

Recent reports give a near-term picture of how experts believe the automation revolution will roll out. Continuing education to adapt to technology will become more necessary as some careers will “cease to exist.”

There is a minor industry of reassurance — writers who spread the message that the automation revolution is over-hyped and will not create […]

America’s Excessive Child Poverty Rate Is Fueled by Mass Immigration

The fact that the United States has been admitting millions of poor unskilled foreigners as immigrants for decades makes it no surprise that the amount of child poverty is highly elevated. There’s a lot of adult poverty too, but the fact of kids growing up with insufficient resources is supposedly more shameful in our wealthy […]

Automation Advances Further into Inventory Jobs

Robots are good at counting and recording, so they are increasingly being used in stores and warehouses to keep track of the stock on hand.

As part of Wal-mart’s competition with Amazon, the store chain is utilizing Amazon’s technology strategy by moving forward with automation to up its e-commerce game.

Naturally, the efficiency and cost-savings are emphasized, […]

Tucker Notes Automation’s Effect on Need for Immigrant Workers

On Tuesday, Tucker Carlson had a rapid-fire interview with billionaire Mark Cuban who thinks he might challenge President Trump in the 2020 Republican primary. Cuban bragged on how he can use his technological expertise to solve government problems, but he shrunk into nonsense at an automation question with an obvious answer:

MARK CUBAN: We need to […]

Tucker Carlson Considers Trump’s 70-Point List of Immigration Enforcement

On Monday, Tucker Carlson examined the latest from the White House about enforcing law and sovereignty, noting, “The administration has now put forward a 70-point immigration plan which calls for easier deportations of people here illegally, a border wall or a partial border wall anyway and new limits on chain migration, which is the idea […]

DACA Amnesty Process Begins to Take Shape

On Tuesday, the Senate held a hearing about what’s to be done with the youngish illegal aliens allowed to remain and mooch off America because of Obama’s unlawful DACA program. The president says he wants an amnesty limited to actual DACA recipients.

But how likely is a limited amnesty when the bi-partisan open-borders caucus gets revved […]

Construction Industry Needs More Workers

The recent hurricanes have left a trail of destruction in Texas and Florida, and residents are looking forward to rebuilding. But as a recent CBS report noted, there is a shortage of construction workers. Our school system has been pushing all young people to go to college when not everyone is a book nerd, and […]

Senate Hearing Paves Way for Self-Driving Trucks

Anyone who cares about automation’s threat to jobs should know that industry is moving ahead rapidly to develop and market self-driving vehicles which endanger the employment of 3.5 million Americans. As noted here, the House passed a self-driving car bill earlier this month despite its busy schedule.

Some non-automotive companies are investing the big bucks, like […]

From President Trump to Amnesty Don — a Former Democrat Reverts

It’s pretty likely that Democrats learned one big lesson from the 2016 election: that they need to import more immigrants into the country since new residents overwhelmingly choose the D-candidates.

Polls assured the nation that Hillary Clinton was a shoe-in for president, and Democrats would continue to rule the White House, but it didn’t work out that […]
