Ecuadoran Park Worker Falls to Her Death in Yellowstone

Is working in this country’s spectacular national parks a job that Americans just don’t want to do? Apparently the government thinks so, judging from the foreigners it promotes to the head of the line.

The recent death of 21-year-old Ecuadoran Estefania Liset Mosquera Alcivar is regrettable, but it does remind us of how Americans are not […]

Singapore: World’s First Self-Driving Cabs Are Launched

It’s actually a little breathtaking how rapidly the self-driving car thing has taken off, once the important people and companies decided it was going to be a thing, and the smart money needed to get in and establish a beachhead.

The Singapore operation is starting out small, with half a dozen cabs in a limited area […]

America’s Senator Jeff Sessions Defends Trump as Immigration Enforcer

Senator Sessions appeared on Fox News Sunday morning and for once he had an interviewer — Tucker Carlson — who is knowledgeable enough on the subject of immigration to have a decent conversation with the senator.

Below, Senator Sessions spoke at candidate Trump’s Mobile, Alabama, rally on August 21, 2015.

Unfortunately, Senator Sessions was too polite to call […]

Geekwire: Presidential Candidates Ignore Automation Job Challenge

Last winter I wrote an article for The Social Contract titled Presidential Candidates: Why Is Automation’s Job Destruction Not Being Debated? (PDF version here). That piece covered the whole primary field, which turned out to be easy because none of the various 20+ contenders discussed the looming economic and social threat of machines and software replacing […]

California Update: Illegal Alien Nurses (and Other Professions) Can Now Get Licensed to Work

The Once-Golden State is arguably the leader for supplying rights and benefits to foreign invaders who have no right to them. As such, Americans should look west to see what open-borders liberals are planning for the rest of the country.

The latest is a threat to health and safety, because Democrat-ruled California wants illegal aliens to […]

Delivery Robots Look Likely for Austin Implementation

Delivery robots are a technology that is coming on strong: they are small, relatively unthreatening to safety and almost friendly as machines go. Their usage niche is rather limited because of their size and use of sidewalks rather than roads, plus they probably won’t work in rough neighborhoods. On the other hand, pizza and other […]

Amazon’s Picking Challenge Spotlights Robotic Advances

Tuesday was the Amazon Prime day, where super deals were offered to shoppers of the online store who pay a fee for extra services. Last year’s Prime Day broke records with its total of 34.4 million items ordered in eligible countries worldwide. That task requires mega processing capability that depends on computers and automation, particularly the company’s […]

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.

Donald Trump was not the first person to notice that the globalized economy of elite […]

Security Guard Robot Is Sighted in San Francisco

I’ve reported earlier about the robot security guard. The Knightscope machine is a 300-pound snoop-bot that scoots around parking lots, recording license plates and other useful data.

The security robot is large and imposing, although it is not capable of aggressive action against bad behavior other than setting off an alarm.

What’s interesting about a recent report from […]

Syrian Refugee Flood Continues, Now with Added Job Displacement

President Obama continues his project to overwhelm the American people with hostile diversity from abroad by using immigration as a weapon. Syrian refugees pour in, despite FBI Director Comey’s warning that they cannot be adequately screened for jihadists. The numbers keep rising as Obama strives to push 10,000 sketchy Syrians through the gates before the end […]

Karen Tribespeople Are Happy to Pluck Turkeys in South Dakota

The PBS Newshour has a chipper little story that begins with informing viewers about the fastest turkey tail lopper in a poultry processing plant in Huron, South Dakota — who happens to be a refugee. In fact, when Nyo Maung is on vacation, his supervisor says, the productivity of the place slows down.

Isn’t that heartwarming? You […]

America’s Senator Jeff Sessions Slams Hillary Clinton’s Plan to Sabotage US Citizen Graduates

Candidate Clinton thinks every foreign STEM graduate with an advanced degree should get a green card stapled to their diploma, immediately placing them in the front of the line for US jobs. How does that help American students who already struggle against cheapie foreigners flooding the STEM workers pool in this country?

It doesn’t. Hillary is […]
