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 […]
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 […]
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 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 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 — […]
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.
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 […]
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 […]
It’s been an interesting week in American border non-security. News came out a few days ago that ISIS was running a camp in Mexico just eight miles south of the US, according to Judicial Watch:
Islamic State operating in Mexico just 8 miles from U.S. border: report, Washington Times, April 14, 2015

Does La Raza run a complainer training program for illegal aliens? Moocher moms from Central America (yes, they’re back) are griping about the service at one of America’s most deluxe detention centers. Apparently the illegal alien kiddies are “depressed” because of the free-to-them school, housing and amenities are not culturally perfect or otherwise deficient.
The Karnes […]
JIhadists may be bloodthirsty headchopper savages, but they aren’t stupid, particularly regarding opportunities to smite the hated infidel. They are aware of America’s open southern border and see it as an on-ramp to mass murder for Allah in the US. This fact is hardly news, although the media notice the national security threat of an […]
Stats are being toted up at the end of FY 2014, one being the number of dead illegal alien border crossers. The press is celebrating that fact that the number of corpses for last year was the lowest in 15 years. One reason given is that invaders now know to turn themselves in to Border […]
