Boatlift to Chaos

FBI Director James B. Comey, who likely was ordered by higher-ups not to recommend indicting Hillary Clinton, recently warned of the dangers posed by migrants, “At some point, there is going to be a terrorist diaspora out of Syria like we’ve never seen before. Not all of the Islamic State killers are going to die on the battlefield.” Continue reading

Hispanic Voters and the Role of Government

In the Hispanic electorate, if we peel off most dogmatic arguments against free markets, an intellectual discomfort with freedom itself becomes obvious. This discomfort is what the preference for bigger government reveals. The Hispanic intellectual uneasiness with freedom is dismaying, because freedom is the only enduring foundation for improving the human condition. Continue reading

The “New Proletariat” – Melania Trump and left-wing hypocrisy on immigration

Since the mid-nineteenth century, Marxists have attempted to use the workers – the “proletariat” – and take advantage of their grievances to seize power. As time went by, however, workers increasingly rejected class warfare, prompting the embittered neo-Marxist left to seek new ersatz “proletariats” (such as immigrants and other minorities).

Refugee Overload: Creating ‘Ghettos’ in Rural Texas

When ‘pockets of resistance’ arise in these rural towns, the federal government dispatches yet more contractors who produce propaganda films and entire assimilation public relations programs to force compliance, if not silence in communities that resist. Meanwhile, states like Texas, … Continue reading

From “Hitler’s Grandson” To “Austrian Trump”— “Populist-Nationalism” Now Poised For Biggest Triumph in Austria

Wodak attributes Hofer’s never-anticipated success in the first round of presidential voting to the 90,000 migrants who have been seeking asylum in Austria since last summer. What the Freedom Party has long derided as their country’s “welcoming culture” has led to its current immigration crisis and its slow rise in unemployment, Hofer supporters charge. Hofer’s slogan – “Putting Austria First” — clearly resonated with voters. And Hofer—an engineer, 41 years old, and a father of four — is less Jorg Haider than he is Donald Trump. Continue reading

NAFTA Raises Its Ugly Head: Mexico Set to Dump Toxic Oil Field Waste into Texas

The Mexican customs office within the KC SmartPort is considered sovereign Mexican territory within the United States’ borders. The port was established to boost international trade by moving cargo and customs inspections into what are known as Foreign Trade Zones (FTZs) with tremendous tax and duty benefits that domestic companies do not enjoy. Inland ports facilitate the further economic integration of the U.S. with Canada and Mexico. KC SmartPort boasts its rail lines are part of the NAFTA superhighway for freight movement.

Trump Versus a Bi-Partisan Liberal Establishment: The Trade-Immigration Connection

The Boston Globe adheres to the liberal ideology, even as it is critical of Big Business in other regards. It rejects Trump as a xenophobe because he wants to “make America great again” by protecting the economic interests of its citizens first. The left-wing newspaper thus promotes House Speaker Paul Ryan as its favorite for the Republican nomination, as he is known to favor both free trade and mass immigration in the classical liberal fashion. Thus is formed a bi-partisan Establishment without any ideological “borders” between them – but also without any political support beyond corporate boardrooms, faculty lounges and a few surreal publications. Continue reading

Muslim Indoctrination and the Department of Education: From Hijab Dress-Up to Convert

The World Hijab Day website presents hijab-wearing as a sign of empowerment; women and girls who wear hijabs are called “queens, princesses, and sultanas.” One blog post by Megan Baase, however, reveals that experimental hijab-wearing may have other effects. Baase writes that she didn’t know much about Islam until World Hijab Day. After reading about Islam and “why women wear hijabs,” she decided to convert: “I would’ve never learned about Islam if it weren’t for world hijab day.”Now, the U.S. Department of Education is encouraging Islamic proselytizing.

Rubio’s Tea Party Treason on Immigration

According to Jack Oliver, legislative director of Floridians for Immigration Enforcement, Senate Bill 744 would have given work permits and legalization to over 11 million illegal aliens, doubled authorized immigration to 22 million over the next decade, and added millions to welfare and entitlement rolls. Oliver called it “amnesty first and a promise for enforcement later.” He contended that the bill never would have gotten through the Senate without Rubio acting as the immigrant “poster child” of the sponsoring “Gang of Eight.” The immigration bill would change demographics forever, with Democrats fast-tracking the newly legalized immigrants to citizenship and voting rolls.

Understanding the Caliphate Curve

What ISIS accomplishes by brute force, the Muslim Brotherhood does by setting up networks of front groups. Both ISIS and the Brotherhood control large Muslim populations. ISIS conquers populations in failed states. The Muslim Brotherhood, however, exercises control over populations in the cities of the West. We could bomb Raqqa, but can we bomb Dearborn, Jersey City or Irvine? Continue reading

The Distance between East and West

The core of the problem is that some of the minorities hold the belief that Western women are sexually loose and are easy to seduce. This way of thinking was expressed by a former Muslim Mufti of Australia, Sheik Tag El Din Al Helaly. Al Helaly once said that women who don’t wear the head scarf, hijab, become like uncovered meat and bring upon themselves the consequences of being attacked. Continue reading

Muslim Immigration is What ISIS Wants

ISIS can’t defeat us with terror attacks. The only hope for an enduring Islamic victory over America is through the rise of domestic groups that pledge allegiance to the Caliphate. ISIS can’t invade America. It has to be invited in. That’s what our immigration policy does. Trump isn’t a threat to national security. Muslim immigration is. Muslim immigration is the Islamic State’s only hope for victory over America. Continue reading

The Paris-San Bernardino Terrorist Attacks and the Battle for Western Civilization

Whether solutions point in the direction of stemming the migrant flow through new policies, securing the EU borders, reinstating passports and border checks for each Schengen nation, or witnessing countries taking this issue into their own hands, one thing is certain: peace and unity cannot be maintained if the situation goes unchanged. The recent Islamist attacks on Paris and San Bernardino are pivotal moments for the future of Western civilization, which now hangs in the balance. Continue reading

Obama’s Work Place Violence Scenario is Getting Old, While Americans are Still Dying at the Hands of Islamic Terrorists

When the Redlands Tea Party Patriots objected to the resettling of Syrian Muslim migrants in their community, CAIR, the Council on American Islamic Relations accused them of “paranoia and phobia rooted in a combination of ignorance and bigotry.” San Bernardino is home to what is described as a “growing Muslim population” and that growth comes with terrifying growing pains. Among American cities across the nation, San Bernardino is not alone. Continue reading

How Illegal Immigrants Give Democrats the Edge in Close Elections

If the criteria of citizen-only population is used from the last census, these changes would cost Democrats four electoral votes as well as possibly four U.S. House seats. As Steinhorn points out “U.S. elections have been decided by far narrower margins. One electoral vote decided the 1876 presidential election. A swing of three electoral votes in 2000 would have elected Al Gore… Though they can’t cast an actual ballot, we effectively allow noncitizens to have an indirect, and possibly decisive, say in choosing the President.” Continue reading

Supporting “Undocumented Youth” and Breaking the Law: the White House Guide for Educators

For years, educators have been conspiring on ways to subvert federal immigration law. Now the Obama Department of Education is helping them.

Terror Immigration to America Must Stop

The United States of America faces a simple choice. We can fill our towns and cities with populations from terror zones and then act surprised when they kill us, or we can shut the doors on them. The Americans they murdered would be alive today if we had a pro-American immigration policy. We can end the bombings and the shootings. We can get rid of the TSA and the NSA. All we need is an immigration policy that puts the safety and security of Americans first. Continue reading

Is Obama’s Census Bureau Balkanizing America?

The Israeli category is more controversial with some in the Israeli-American community. In Jewish population studies, most American Jews say they are Jewish by religion. Race and ethnicity have a complicated, terrible history for Jews, and American Jewish organizations were among those opposed to census questions about religion in the past reflecting their concerns related to the Nuremberg laws. Germany’s Nazi government used information from its own census to track down Jews. Continue reading

Obama Administration Takes First Steps for New, Largely Muslim, Middle East-North Africa Census Category

Conservatives Must Reverse National Decay – and Save the GOP from Self-Destruction

With national elections looming, all the structural factors favor a Republican wave that will shift control of the Senate and give the GOP majorities in both houses of Congress. Yet, the actual Senate contests in Alaska, Arkansas, Colorado, Georgia, Iowa, Kansas, Louisiana, New Hampshire, and North Carolina are considered too close to call. This implies that despite President Obama’s fall in public confidence as his economic and foreign policies have faltered; the Republicans have not presented voters with a strong case for putting them into power.
