Excessive immigration can usually muddle through as long as the jobs economy doesn’t tank. But when employment disappears, then jobless locals begin to notice the cheapie foreign workers. That scenario seems to be the case in South Africa, where several persons have been killed in anti-immigration rioting across the country over the last couple weeks. […]
Progress never sleeps these days, and the expansion of machine intelligence is growing faster than most of us civilians can follow. However, one simple metric is the development of the self-driving car, since Google co-founder Sergey Brin forecast in 2012 that self-driving cars would be available for consumers in five years.
Brin is putting the considerable […]
How is an economy supposed to function when human workers are becoming obsolete because of smart machines in the workplace? Leisure time is certainly nice, but humans require money for acquiring goods and services. Curiously, the captains of industry don’t seem to notice the consumption part of the economy equation, and when people don’t get […]
On Friday, Dennis Michael Lynch was a guest host on Newsmax TV. He is the independent filmmaker who has produced border documentaries like They Come to America II.
He interviewed Roy Beck (of NumbersUSA, the activist pro-sovereignty immigration organization) about the threat posed by Obama’s executive amnesty.
(Note: there is an annoying pause in the connection to […]
Do schools still teach the basic concept of supply and demand, in particular that when a labor market is flooded, then wages fall? It often seems not, since news coverage of unemployment almost never mentions the effect of importing millions of foreign workers on wages and job availability.
Democrats wail about income inequality and advocate for […]
Don’t be surprised if you are welcomed to an Orchard Supply Hardware Store by a robot ready to direct your shopping to the right aisle. Just show the replacement part needed to the machine’s screen and the OSHbot will escort you to the correct spot.
An addition, the robot celebrates diversity by speaking Spanish, so immigrants […]
I happened to click on to PBS’ Charlie Rose Show yesterday where the illegal alien tsunami was being discussed by some Republican suits. Ed Rollins opined that our current system could be wildly expanded beyond the measly doubling of legal immigration (from one million annually) of the Senate amnesty bill, but should instead accept five […]
The government suits are doing cartwheels in California for a rather pathetic milestone — the state’s unemployment level has fallen below 10 percent for the first time in over four years. The official unemployment rate is 9.8 percent, second worst in the country, yet economic pundits declare things like, “California’s economy is growing and is […]
In the new post-American USA, citizens often get second-class treatment. Young people who are scrambling to make a place for themselves are particularly at risk under the updated rules which actually favor foreigners, even illegal ones, over US citizens.
We saw that the DREAM Act was defeated by a whisker in Congress during the Democrat-controlled lame-duck […]
An interview with the hotel magnate has far more common sense about employment and trade than anything you hear out of Washington, where everyone talks up creating jobs but with no specifics about how.
China is manipulating currency to its great advantage, Trump says, and is exploiting American weakness. His recommendation: we should tax Chinese goods […]
While mousing around earlier, I came across this bizarre pro-invasion item in Foreign Policy, celebrating the “contributions” that “migrants” make. The piece consists of 14 photos of foreigners dressed up in super-hero outfits, with the name of each and how much they regularly send home in remittances. Obviously the “contribution” is not to America, except […]
