Texas Governor Greg Abbott Signs Anti-Sanctuary City Bill into Law

Here’s some good news from Texas. After working its way through the legislature, the bill prohibiting sanctuary cities made it to the governor’s desk, and he signed it on Sunday.

Tucker Carlson interviewed the governor last week and asked him about the legislation. Gov. Abbott explained what it would do:

GREG ABBOTT:  This law ensures that we […]

Texas Voter ID Gets the Democrat News Treatment

CBS served up a tear jerker story about an 86-year-old black veteran, Floyd Carrier, who could no longer vote because his military ID does not include a photo. The immediate reason is the Texas voter ID law of 2011 that requires a photo identification card to vote. The larger problem is that times have changed […]

New York Times Reports Automation-Fueled Job Loss in the Oil Patch

The automation job wrecker got a rare front-page spot on Monday’s New York Times, where the oil industry was the subject:

Blue-collar worker Eustasio Velazquez, 44, succinctly described the situation of many when he observed, “I don’t see a future. Pretty soon every rig will have one worker and a robot.”

And that one worker will be a tech-trained […]

Texas: Mexican Woman Is Sentenced to 8 Years for Voter Fraud

Rosa Maria Ortega’s mug should be made into a poster warning about voter fraud and plastered near every polling place in America. There’s nothing like hard time in the big house to show a government’s seriousness about a crime — and voter fraud needs to be prioritized, particularly when the perp is a moocher illegal […]

Automation: How It’s Changing the Oil Patch

The report below from the Houston Chronicle about smart machines in the petroleum industry is helpful because it is fairly precise about how many jobs are being lost. As in many businesses, a complete wipeout of jobs is not what’s happening, but the increased efficiency of advanced machines does remove a significant chunk of human […]

Wal-Mart’s Dallas Optical Lab Replaces 91 Jobs with Machines

You don’t see many news reports like this one where a relative few human jobs are lost when smart machines are brought in.

I suspect there are many more instances of a few dozen job cuts here and there that never make it to the newspapers or internet. It’s just the company upgrading equipment to […]

Hispanic Texas Town May Be America’s Most Corrupt

Sunday’s Washington Post had a feature about a small Texas town where nearly all the elected officials have been arrested for corruption. Crystal City, population 7190 (2010 Census), is located 35 miles from the Mexico border.

Another important statistic: the town is 97 percent hispanic. The Mexican influence is strong there, given the cultural backgrounds of […]

Pope's Travels Include Appearance on US-Mexico Border

Pope Francis is visiting Mexico this week to check in on some of his Latin American flock, in particular to draw attention to the plight of (illegal) immigrants by holding a well publicized mass on the US border. The purpose? To guilt trip Americans, probably, for being so mean by having borders, sort of.

In 2013, Pope Francis […]

Two America-residing Iraqi Refugees Are Busted for Jihad

Two Iraqi refugees were arrested on Thursday for terror-related charges, one in Sacramento and one in Houston. Keep in mind that the US presence in Iraq over years has given our government plenty of access to information about Iraqis entering this country. Even so, these jihadists were able to slip through any alleged screening — […]

Flood of Border-Crossing Illegal Alien Kids Continues Unabated

Thursday’s Washington Post included an above-the-fold photo and story about the continued influx of “unaccompanied” children across Obama’s open border.

If it weren’t for the increased concern about security due to the jihad attacks in the past few weeks (Paris and San Bernardino) there would certainly be a lot more attention paid to the border chaos.

Of […]

Appeals Court Smacks Down Obama’s Unlawful Executive Amnesty

The decision seemed long in coming since Texas Judge Andrew Hanen’s original opinion, but it is very welcome in drawing a line showing that the Constitution still is respected in the United States.

Twenty-six states challenged the right of the President to unilaterally amnesty millions of illegal aliens. After all, the Constitution mandates that the Congress makes […]

Islamic Anti-Free-Speech Shootout Hits Garland Texas

Pamela Geller returned to Garland Texas on Sunday to respond to January’s “Stand with the Prophet” jihad conclave that condemned America’s First Amendment because it allows us to tell the unpleasant truth about Islam and Mohammed. She chose the same venue in the same town to emphasize that Americans will not give up our treasured free […]
