Nancy Pelosi Has No Credibility on National Security

Career politician Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) recently stated that in the U.S. we have to have the balance between security and privacy. This happened after being booed at an event when she said Edward Snowden, who revealed secret U.S. government surveillance programs on its own citizens, “did violate the law in terms of releasing those documents.” In response to the pushback from the...

Does U.S. Government Hate its Citizens?

Well-respected investment advisor and commentator Mish Shedlock recently wrote two troubling commentaries related to immigration that are worth the read. Mish has written quite a bit about Obamacare changing how businesses are addressing staffing – from holding off on hiring to shifting to more part-time workers to avoid the mandate for coverage of full-time employees. Now, Mish writes...

Yet More Research Shows Human Overpopulation Threatens Other Creatures

Recent human history shows we have not been kind to other creatures with whom we share the planet. The last vestiges of British Empire brought Lord of the Manor, big-game animal hunting to Africa, energetically taken up by high-profile American enthusiasts such as writer Ernest Hemingway. America saw its own decimation of wildlife with the mass slaughter of buffalo. Now we see wildlife...

They Keep Coming to America

"They Come to America II: The Cost of Amnesty” is Dennis Michael Lynch’s second documentary about illegal immigration. In it, Lynch covers a lot of ground. As Lynch worked to get his first immigration documentary, “They Come to America,” seen by people across the country before the Presidential election of 2012, the New York filmmaker also was filming and editing...

USC Goes All Out in Support of Amnesty, Part I

As I listened recently to three hours of cheerleading at the University of Southern California for the Gang of Eight’s amnesty plan I thought of the many families sending their kids to USC. They hand over $62k a year per student (four years = $250k, most likely, debt). USC then produces a graduate inculcated into an ideology (if what I listened to is illustrative) that undermines the U.S....

USC Goes All Out in Support of Amnesty, Part II

On April 30, USC and the Schwarzenegger Institute hosted an event to put a stamp of approval on the Gang of Eight amnesty legislation. Gang of Eighter Sen. John McCain said he believes that with new technology and E-Verify, “We can have 90 percent effective control of our border.” Why quibble over a mere 10 percent? “We’ll never totally secure our borders, as long as...

USC Goes All Out in Support of Amnesty – Part III

Listening to the recent pro-immigration event at USC made me think of George Orwell, because of the 1984ish flavor of the conference. I’m not talking all-out dystopia, but a real sense of propaganda and calling things not as they are. One speaker, Dowell Myers, a USC professor of population dynamics, was asked about the cost of health care and anchor babies – how do relative benefits...

Desperate Housewife Explains Immigration

Actors get a lot of grief for being political – from Jane Fonda, Daryl Hannah and Susan Sarandon to Alec Baldwin and one of those other ubiquitous Baldwin boys, among others. Activist stars are not something that’s really ever bothered me. If an actor can use his/her celebrity status to build awareness for an issue and work for good, that’s cool. There are numerous examples. To...

Ann Coulter on Immigration, Legal and Illegal

Never in a thousand years would I have thought I’d find myself in agreement with commentator Ann Coulter. I’ve pilloried her more than once in print. That said, she’s spot on with her comments this week about the failure of U.S. immigration policy and enforcement to protect Americans. Does she use the Boston Marathon bombings to highlight this? Yes. Is that wrong? I don’...
