Immigration Reform Theater

Immigration Reform Theater

Marketwatch clues us in.  It’s unequivocally good news for investors: More immigration equals cheaper labor, whether that’s provided for picking corn or processing computer code, with a possible rise in aggregate demand to boot.  It’s likely good for the broader economy, though the benefits flow mostly to the rich. In a study that the White...

Obama’s Machinations

Obama’s Machinations

Lest you think the grand diplomatic bargain reached in Geneva has deterred the Obama administration from the pursuit of its chief domestic priority, here is some unpleasant news, courtesy of National Public Radio. Whether the President will enact a wholesale amnesty through yet another unconstitutional presidential edict, or manage to persuade the already receptive...

Through The Looking Glass

Through The Looking Glass

While most of us would see intense wealth stratification, large pockets of third world poverty, and cratering academic achievement as poor indicators of future prosperity, the governor of the nation’s largest state begs to differ.  Asked on National Public Radio’s “All Things Considered” about two negative indicators — the state’s nation-high poverty rate and the large...

Picking Up The Slack

Picking Up The Slack

One of the mainstays of this administration’s immigration policy is non-enforcement, coupled with an overwhelming tendency to deceive the public about what it is doing. Of course, its lapdogs in the mainstream media have been more than willing to facilitate this deception, so long as it bolsters the President’s chances of enacting an even...

Resist

  As most of you know by now, the brain trust in the United States Senate has released its blueprint for strip-mining what remains of the body politic. If it looks drearily familiar to you, there’s probably a good reason why that’s so. Namely, it is identical to nearly every other proposal for mass...

Unlike past generations of refugees who came here from nations behind the Iron Curtain, Cuba, or other Communist states, the ones transplanted to the...

Part II: Albion Under Siege (SION Conference)

Part II: Albion Under Siege (SION Conference)

The global jihad against speech-aided and abetted by our enemedia-was the primary subject of discussion at the SION conference this past Tuesday, and the panels assembled represented the full spectrum of thought and action that is being suppressed as a result of the collaboration between government officials-both elected and unelected-intent on “managing” our ever-diminishing pool of  liberty, the custodians...

The Human Pipeline

The Human Pipeline

This website has extensively chronicled one of the most pernicious byproducts of our dysfunctional system of mass immigration and lax border security. Namely, the scourge of human trafficking. A recent BBC investigative report has once again revealed the pervasive nature of this 21st century incarnation of involuntary servitude. The fact that women from remote regions of...

Shadow Catcher

National Public Radio is, almost without exception, a black hole when it comes to obtaining accurate, reliable information and analysis about immigration. Half of the on-air talent could be executed by members of MS-13, and the following day’s headline on NPR would probably be “Aggrieved Undocumented Migrants Exact Misdirected Revenge Against Jan Brewer.” That’s...

NPR and Taxes

NPR and Taxes

A little late for filing day, but since rendering unto Caesar is a year-round profession for some people I’d like to alert you to a piece I wrote for the Brooklyn Young Republican Club which explores the fairness of our tax system. Feel free to contribute your own thoughts, questions, criticisms, etc., in the...
