  "No kingdom can be secured otherwise than by arming the people.   The possession of arms is the distinction between a freeman & a slave.   He, who has nothing, & who himself belongs to another, must be defended by him, whose property he is, & needs no arms.   But he, who thinks he is his own master, & has what he can call his own, ought to have arms to defend himself, & what he possesses; else he lives precariously, & at discretion." --- James Burgh 1774 _Political Disquisitions_ vol 2 pg 390 (quoted in Robert E. Shalhope 1982-12-?? "The Ideological Origins of the 2nd Amendment" _Journal of American History_ vol 69 #3 pg 604; quoted in Clayton E.

women (especially married women) are the staunchest and most effective immigration reform patriots
"Considering the routing Democrats took in last year's anti-amnesty elections, it's no surprise conservatives around the country are pushing for Tennessee congresswoman, Marsha Blackburn, to jump into the race for House speaker.   Ms. Blackburn has been earning the praise of pro-restrictionist Americans for years and her voting record on immigration policy is flawless.   If speaker, not only will she inspire working-class voters in despair over the GOP's weakness on immigration, she’ll have firmly cemented what's becoming a truism in America: that the staunchest and most effective immigration patriots in the country are women.   Surveying NumbersUSA's report card on House members between 1989 and this year, over half of all female House reps are well above the average grade with most having top-notch marks.   Why immigration softies are disproportionately male (especially among House leadership) perhaps isn't a mystery.   Women (and especially married women) seem to instinctively know and understand issues like national security and job security; 2 areas that have been dissolving for years due to our open-borders policies.   Women are also probably more likely to be honest and principled, putting the good of the country ahead of what's good for the donor class..."

corrupt Obummer/Johnson DHS plans to comply nationwide with one corrupt judge's order to release illegal aliens into the population contrary to the US constitution and laws
So, let's get this straight.   They no longer repel invaders, but bring them in, offer them assistance with filling out forms to apply for asylum or unconstitutional and illegal amnesty.   They feed them, clothe them, provide medical care, they give them transportation throughout the USA to re-join relatives -- citizens, temporary and permanent legal residents, illegal aliens -- all at tax-victims' expense.   They let loose even repeat criminals, deporting and removing only the very few very worst.   But to these twisted bureaubums, this is not good enough; it takes too long; the accommodations -- better than those of many citizens (notably veterans) -- aren't palatial enough for illegal aliens.   Never mind US citizens' dreams and aspirations; those must be set aside for the "dreams" of the law-breaking, hence illegal, aliens.

Hitlery Rotten Clinton's failure to secure USA consulate at Benghazi, abuses and lies raise questions of judgement and trust
"...Handling classified information is something all of our government employees and officials are expected to treat with the utmost seriousness, and rightly so.   We live in a dangerous world replete with threats to our national security, and we expect public servants to follow the same rules that we demand of members of our military and intelligence services when it comes to safeguarding our nation's secrets.   Just within the past year, top generals have had their careers ended by the mishandling of classified information, and have been forced to pay steep fines and even face the prospect of prison time.   Men and women who fail to adhere to the law when it comes to classified information are fired from jobs, stripped of pensions and sometimes even thrown behind bars for flouting the rules of secrecy designed to protect our country.   So should anything be different just because someone happens to be running for president?   The bar for adherence to the rule of law should be even higher for those who aspire to lead this country..."

Ben Kinchlow _WND_
the "establishment clause"
Even Kinchlow stumbles.   It doesn't say there can be or not be an "establishment of religion".   Nearly half of the colonies/states had, and kept religious establisments, i.e. state established religions, for decades after adoption of the constitution, and there was no contradiction.   Congress cannot make any law -- positive or negative -- about religious establishments.   Congress cannot mandate that all USA citizens or residents must pay a tax to support a particular religion, but each state could... though most, over time, decided to terminate theirs and leave them free to compete for gathering voluntary adherents.   Before the constitution, some states with establishment religions (e.g. Maryland's Roman Catholic Church, or Virginia's Church of England which later became the Episcopalian, and, of course, Pennsylvania was a Quaker proprietorship, while Taxxachusetts was a Congregationalist/Puritan hegemony, with various apostates fleeing to found Rhode Island and Connecticut) specified the boundaries of parishes, and required each church to have a board of vestrymen, who had the power to collect the church tax and bring charges against those who failed to attend services.   County judges would levy fines and corporal punishment.   But over time, the Quakers invited in Presbyterians, German Baptists (Dunkards) and others, while some Quakers and Baptists and Presbyterians and Huguenots moved into Virginia; and there were already a scattering of Jewish people from northern New York to Savannah.   There were initial conflicts.   Some of the "Dissenters" were harassed, put in stocks, heavily taxed, their marriages declared null, etc.   But by 1776, their numbers had increased and they'd become generally (mostly) accepted.   Petitions were gathered, asking the Virginia legislature to end the Episcopalian establishment (some of my own ancesters were among those who initiated or signed such petitions).   Rabbis joined parades celebrating the declaration of independence.   But for decades after the constitution was adopted, at least 5 states maintained establishments.   For a time, there were even cases of Presbyterian judges meting out penalties for Episcopalians who failed to attend their services, Baptists who failed to attend theirs, etc.   And the federal government was not allowed to interfere.   This is the meaning of the "establishment claise", not that state or local establishments were forbidden, but that the federal government could neither impose nor forbid one.

Planned Parenthood, abortion, and birth rates
Penman neglects the issue of over-population and over-crowding, both subjective in part and objective in part.   People have different notions of ideal population densities, or even whether it could ever be over-crowded.   I read recently that a family of 4 hunter-gatherers needed about 10K acres just to survive, while some city-dwellers get edgy if they're not always rubbing shoulders with others.   Some have the notion that, regardless of current population and density, increasing population is always a necessity, while others think we passed the reasonable limits over a century ago.

  "the earliest attested precursors of ceramics are fired clay figurines made in the area of modern Czechoslovakia 27K years ago, long before the oldest known fired clay vessels (from Japan 14K years ago).   The same area of Czechoslovakia at the same time has yielded the earliest evidence for weaving, otherwise not attested until the oldest known basket appears around 13K years ago and the oldest known woven cloth around 9K years ago.   Despite these very early firt steps, neither pottery nor weaving took off until people became sedentary [not nomadic or migratory] and thereby escaped the problem of transporting pots and looms." --- Jared Diamond 1997 _Guns, Germs, and Steel: The Fates of Human Societies_ pg261

having violated the statutory requirements for soliciting comments for proposed regulations, DHS is trying again to harm USA STEM professionals, by stretching OPT internships for foreign students to 36 months
"There are more than 100K foreign students working [in STEM fields under extended OPT internships]...   increases oversight...   development of formal mentoring programs, wage protection for OpT workers and [impossible to enforce] prohibitions against replacing US workers [which is a government turn of art which includes both citizens and green card grantees]...   Joseph Palos, wrote that he has a STEM degree from Cornell U but has been struggling to find work.   'Companies don't want to hire Americans and they abuse [H-1B] and OPT to hire cheap immobile labor instead of hiring anyone over the age of 35, especially in software or tech areas.', he wrote...   Ron Hira, a public policy professor at Howard U, said bachelor's and master's degrees in STEM disciplines 'are most commonly professional degrees, meaning that those graduates are [nearly] able to hit the ground running as professionals'.   Hira said there 'is no justification to treat them as interns in need of further [extended] training.   The duration of training being proposed by the [Obummer regime] has no basis in any theory, data or analysis.', Hira s aid.   'It is pure fiction that someone with a master's degree in electrical engineering needs an additional 3 years to work as an intern to be a productive professional.   Instead, the duration seems to come out of thin air, based purely on what the political types in the [Obummer] White House believe that they can get through without facing significant opposition.'   John Miano, the attorney representing the Washington Alliance of Technology Workers, which brought the OPT law-suit, said that one of the problems with the proposed rule is that it effectively 'requires employers and universities to engage in unlawful immigration status discrimination...   there is no requirement that American graduates receive the same benefit' [extensive training and mentoring, let alone the pre-H-1B norm of new-hire and retained-employee training of 2-16 weeks for new-hires, and 2-4 weeks for retained employees]."

"...The fact is that the labor force participation rate for the age group 16 to 24 is only 55.1%.   That is a reduction of over 10% from 66% during the 1990's.   It is also down over 5% (60.8%) from 2005.   Sure myopic minimum wage increases are harming the employment of this age group with the least work experience, but that is not the total explanation...   the prime working years of 25-54 years old. In 2000 the [Labor Force Participation Rate (LFPR)] for this age group was almost 85%.   It was down to 83% when the recession started, but has now plummeted to 80.7%...   for 2015 September was 62.4%.   That is 3.7% less than August, 2005 exactly ten years earlier...   From the point that the recession was pronounced over the [LFPR] has steadily declined by 3.3%..."

Jerry Kammer _Center for Immigration Studies_
C-SPAN interview with author of _Undocumented_ shows why the NYTimes doesn't "get it" on immigration (part 1 of 4)
"Thanks to C-SPAN, I now have a new Exhibit A for the case that the New York Times is incapable of understanding why many Americans are upset about illegal immigration.   C-SPAN performed this public service by inviting Times immigration reporter Liz Robbins to interview Dan-el Padilla Peralta, author of the memoir _Undocumented: A Dominican Boy's Odyssey From a Homeless Shelter to the Ivy League_.   Padilla's story is indeed remarkable, in large part because it illustrates the tension between a key American myth and a core American value.   The myth is the heroically upward arc of the tenacious and talented striver in a land of opportunity.   The core value is the ethic of playing by the rules in a democratic country of kaleidoscopic diversity.   Padilla is a brilliant scholar, but he shows no understanding of the history of U.S.A. immigration policy and another tension that underlies it.   It is a tension between idealism and pragmatism, between utopian dream and human reality.   As historian Arthur Schlesinger noted in _The Disuniting of America_, 'America has so long seen itself as the asylum for the oppressed and persecuted -- and has done itself and the world so much good thereby -- that any curtailment of immigration offends something in the American soul.   No one wants to be a Know-Nothing.   Yet uncontrolled immigration is an impossibility; so the criteria of control are questions the American democracy must confront.'   One of Padilla's principal aims in his book is to denounce those who do not want [more and more and more paths] to citizenship for him and the millions of other [illegal aliens] now living in the country.   He is a moral absolutist, perhaps because it is difficult for someone whose family ignored immigration laws to say that others should be required to respect it.   He never explains just why [he thinks] it is unjust for the United States to set limits on immigration.   That argument is his starting point.   He shows no regret about his mother's decision that the family would seek free medical care for a problem pregnancy, overstay their visitor visas, and then -- because Dan-el's younger brother was a citizen by birth -- use that status to claim welfare payments and subsidized low-rent housing.   Robbins raises none of these matters in the interview.   That is because she, like nearly everyone else at the Times, practices the religion of 'inclusiveness' and 'equality', according to which our borders should be open to anyone because anything else is 'unfair' and 'unjust'.   The most off-putting feature of Padilla's book is that despite the author's impressive credentials as an intellectual -- with degrees from Princeton and Stanford and a fellowship at Oxford -- he repeatedly engages in simplistic rants about the hidebound evil of those of us who oppose illegal immigration in the belief that it is damaging to our country.   As T.A. Frank put it in the New Republic, we want a country that is 'prosperous, cohesive, harmonious, wealthy in land and resources per capita, nurturing of its skilled citizens, and most important, protective of its unskilled citizens, who deserve as much as any other Americans to live in dignity'.   Frank said the problem of giving into the demand for sweeping amnesty -- which Padilla issues loudly and angrily -- 'is that it sets in motion the next waves of millions'.   Padilla seethes with contempt for those who dare to hold this view.   His world-view, aggressively defended in the New York Times, is that those who hold it are small-minded provincials warped by xenophobic hostility.   With Olympian disdain, Padilla describes them as 'anti-immigrant zealots who invoked the law as a cover for their xenophobia' and as 'the chauvinistically minded few' and -- of course -- as 'haters'.   Heaping scorn on a fellow Princeton student who fails to endorse illegal immigration, he labels her the 'immigrant-hater chick'.   Robbins doesn't raise any of these intolerant and intemperate excesses, probably because she finds them perfectly understandable and right-minded.   She holds true to the New York Times ethic of serving as advocate, promoter, defender, and enabler of illegal immigrants.   Like many 'well-intended' [leftists], she is part of the team.   Robbins reflects the views of her publisher, Arthur Sulzberger ii, who sees illegal immigrants as waging a righteous battle in the progressive crusade for expanding individual freedom.   In an infamous commencement speech, Sulzberger unfurled the banner of 'fighting for fundamental human rights, whether it's the rights of immigrants to start a new life; or the rights of gays to marry; or the rights of women to choose'.   He admonished the graduates about their moral duties, telling them that as they faced fateful decision points, 'You will choose at each point whether to be bold or hesitant, inclusive or elitist, generous or stingy.'   Sulzberger is passionate in his defense of diversity — provided, of course, that no one should expect him to bring ideological diversity to his paper's examination of immigration.   There are times when the Times simply must rise above its principles.   Caveat lector.   Sulzberger provides a wrinkle on John Updike's observation that the 'true New Yorker' is someone with a 'secret belief that people living anywhere else had to be, in some sense, kidding'.   Sulzberger, Robbins, and company are smugly confident of their moral virtue as they inform the world that those who want to limit immigration have to be, in some sense, racists or xenophobes, or maybe just rubes from the provinces.   To borrow a line from Tennyson's Ulysses, Padilla joins Robbins and Sulzberger in the self-admiration of 'one equal temper of heroic hearts' struggling nobly and determined not to recognize any legitimacy in efforts to limit immigration.   And so, at the end of their hour on C-SPAN, Padilla declared that the interview had been 'delightful' and Robbins enthused that it had been 'much fun, much fun'."

Mexicans react to USA sentencing "reform" measures
"The senate Judiciary committee voted last week to move the 'Sentencing Reform and Corrections Act of 2015' to the floor for a vote.   This, together with criminal releases announces as a result of the U.S. Sentencing Commission's 2014 amendment to the sentencing guidelines that retroactively reduced sentences for all drug trafficking crimes, has elicited a response in Mexico.   The new guidelines [might] result in the release of 6K felons at first, with an eventual total of between 40K and 46K.   Many of them will be criminal aliens; my colleague Dan Cadman reports that between one-quarter and one-third are believed to be non-citizens, meaning that eventually 'between 11,500 and 13,200 serious alien drug offenders will soon be out of lock-down'.   Even under [the Obummer regime], many if not most will be deported.   In response, the congress of the Mexican border state of Baja California has requested the Mexican federal government to prepare for the imminent mass deportation of inmates from the [United States of America].   In a proposal directed to all 3 levels of government (federal, state, and municipal), the state legislature requested coordination mechanisms and protocols be established..."

"According to The Washington Post's Robert Costa, in 'Paul Ryan taps GOP power broker David Hoppe for top job' Ryan has hired lobbyist David Hoppe as chief of staff for the speaker's office.   One of the objections of conservatives had to the way speaker John Boehner ran his office was the blatant revolving door between Boehner's office and the corporate lobbyists of Washington's K Street.   Boehner's off-and-on chief of staff Barry Jackson moved back and forth between Capitol Hill and K Street and even formed an anti-conservative PAC -- American Action Network...   Hiring a lobbyist as his chief of staff is the strongest indication yet that Ryan has no intention of changing much in the speaker's office.   But some conservatives, including Ohio's representative Jim Jordan and 25 other members of the House Freedom Caucus, have been suckered by Ryan's sales pitch -- or intimidated by pressure from the [U.S. Chamber of Crony Socialists] wing of the [RINO's] Capitol Hill establishment.   'We [the super majority of the Freedom Caucus] think Paul has the kind of vision and is the kind of messenger our party needs to accomplish the things we told the voters we're going to accomplish.', group chairman Ohio Republican representative Jim Jordan said on 'Fox News Sunday'.   So, does that mean Paul Ryan abandoned amnesty, [TPA+TAA+TPP+TATIP+TISA], massive increases in H-1B visas, breaking the spending caps and that he will fight to de-fund Planned Parenthood, executive amnesty and [ObummerDoesn'tCare]? Not a chance.   'The House [losership] thinks it's gonna be Jeb or Rubio.', Rush Limbaugh said last week.   'The [NIGHTMARE]: Jeb or Rubio in the White House; Ryan Speaker of the House.   Then in the first 12 months of the Rubio or Jeb administration, first 12-to-18 months, the donor-class agenda is implemented, including amnesty and whatever else they want.   That is the objective here.   That's what I think all this adds up to.'   The 'tell' that Rush is right (as usual) is a promise Ryan made first in a closed-door House GOP conference meeting then in a subsequent meeting with the House Freedom Caucus -- the meeting at which Ryan secured enough support for a likely-to-be-successful speakership bid -- that he wouldn't bring up any amnesty bill while [Barack Hussein Obummer] is still president.   That promise, first reported by the Washington Free Beacon, subsequently confirmed by our friend Julia Hahn of Breitbart News from various sources, including Ryan's spokesman Brendan Buck.   Buck, when asked the follow-up question of whether Ryan's no amnesty bill promise doesn't extend into the time-frame after [Obummer] leaves office under a future administration, has not responded.   His refusal to answer that question is telling, concluded Hahn, meaning Ryan is intentionally leaving the door open for what conservatives fear -- Ryan as speaker, with Hillary Clinton, [Yebbie Booosh] or Marco Rubio as president.   And the fact that Clinton, Ryan, Bush and Rubio share exactly the same positions on amnesty for illegal aliens, increasing H-1B work visas for foreigners and other key policy items is the crucial element of the current split in the Republican Party.   It isn't that John Boehner and Kevin McCarthy have been incoherent advocates of conservative policy.   It is that they, and Paul Ryan, Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio favor exactly the same policies as do Hillary Clinton and far-Left Democratic congressman and advocacy advocate Luis Gutierrez.   Jim Jordan may think that Paul Ryan 'has the kind of vision and is the kind of messenger our party needs', but as long as that vision is amnesty for illegal aliens, massive increases in H-1B visas, breaking the spending caps and funding of Planned Parenthood, executive amnesty and [ObummerDoesn'tCare, harming the economy & making the job markets even more dysfunctional] the grass-roots demand for [removal of] the Republican [losership] on Capitol Hill is only going to get stronger and the fissure in the GOP is only going to get deeper.   Conservatives still have the votes to stop Paul Ryan and his plan to eliminate the last vestiges of democracy in the House of Representatives.  .."

national socialist television attempting to drive another wedge between Republican factions?: some of the "Freedom" caucus members have been backers of reprehensible immigration law perversion all along
"...However, what conservative activists describe as a 'betrayal' is, for several key members of the House Freedom caucus, the fulfillment of their long-time desire to implement amnesty and alter the demographics of their districts through expanded immigration.   While the GOP electorate ejected Eric Cantor in large measure due to his support for Marco Rubio's amnesty drive -- followed by John Boehner (R-OH) and current House whip Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) -- the PBS documentary reveals that one of the founding members of the House Freedom Caucus, Mick Mulvaney (R-SC), embraces an even more [leftist, regressive] immigration [law perversion] agenda than Cantor himself.   The documentary, which aired on October 20, casts Mulvaney at the center of the La Raza-backed 2013 and 2014 immigration push, alongside Paul Ryan and Luis Gutierrez (D-IL).   As PBS writes on its web-site, the documentary is 'a fly-on-the-wall look at the high-stakes effort to broker a deal [on immigration] in Congress–an effort led by Luis Gutierrez'.   The site continues, 'In addition to Gutierrez...we meet Mick Mulvaney (R-SC) -- a Tea Party member who communicates with his Spanish-speaking constituents in their own language, and who chastises members of his party' for opposing mass amnesty.   This helps explain why, after Ryan announced his candidacy for speaker, Mulvaney and Gutierrez were among those who most aggressively boosted Ryan in the media..."

Iran claims it is "totally unfair" for USA to jail dual Iran-USA citizen engineer Mozaffar Khazaee for smuggling sensitive military documents to Iran
"Analyses by the USAF and victim defense contractors, cited by the DoJ in an Oct. 23 press release, revealed that the technical data that Khazaee stole would have helped Iran leap forward 10 years or more in academic and military turbine engine research and development, reducing their investment in such technology by one to two billion dollars and potentially enhancing the development and effectiveness of their weapon systems'.   Various DoJ officials involved in the arrest and prosecution of Khazaee, including assistant-director of the FBI's Counterintelligence division Randall Coleman, declared that the dual citizen's actions could have put U.S. national security at risk...   Khazaee, who has a PhD in mechanical engineering, denied the charges, claiming his emails amount to no more than scientific research and are in no way linked to sensitive U.S. military issues...   Khazaee, 61, formerly of Manchester, CT...   He was sentenced by U.S. federal judge Vanessa Bryant of the District of Connecticut for 'violating the Arms Export Control Act by attempting to send Iran highly sensitive, proprietary, trade secret and export controlled material reading to U.S. military jet engines [including those relating to the USAF's F-35 Joint Strike Fighter program and the F-22 Raptor], which he had stolen from multiple U.S. defense contractors where he had previously been employed', explained the DoJ.   Khazaee was arrested at the Newark Liberty International Airport as he tried to leave the country for Iran...   'Khazaee was also found in the possession of $59,945.00 in as-yet undeclared cash, which he had split up into increments of approximately $5K and secreted in multiple bank envelopes in various places in his carry-on luggage.'   In addition to documents related to the F-35 JSF program and the F-22 Raptor, Khazaee also had materials relating to numerous other U.S. military engine programs, including the V-22 Osprey, the C130J Hercules and the Global Hawk engine programs..."

Google, FB, Twit, PayPal ganging up to restrict liberty, violate rights, muffle contrary voices on-line
"New, massive players entering the gun rights battle on the side of those who would restrict individual rights are changing the political playing field in stealthy, insidious and possibly effective ways.   America's 100M-plus gun owners expect constant assaults on their rights from elected politicians, much of the media and the gun ban lobby.   Through individual and collective lobbying (contacting their representatives as set out by the Founders of our government), and challenging the misinformation and even lies in the media, the men and women who make up the 99.9% of gun owners who do not commit crimes answer the call to fight discrimination and bigotry that labels as undesirables a third to half the adults in the [United States of America].   These people have no recourse, however, to a massive censorship campaign currently underway -- one which blocks the free exchange of information as well as stifles commerce.   This isn't the government at work, but is being done by the giant companies that dominate the Internet.   Google, Twitter, PayPal and FB all have established policies blocking ads and payments for guns, gun parts, gun accessories or even optics that can be attached to firearms.   These massive companies have become the super-highways, the inter-states, of web commerce.   Blocking access to customers using these portals impacts companies large and small the same as it would a retailer on a main thoroughfare that suddenly had its signs removed and faced a barrier shielding the view from the road.   Google blocked firearms ads from Google Shopping.   Twitter's ad policy blocks weapons, even when the firearms are for competition and hunting.   PayPal will not allow its online payment system to be used for legal firearm purchases.   FB arbitrarily shuts down pages it deems to be about weapons, even when there are no firearms being sold.   One major online company that sells optics (scopes and binoculars) and flashlights had its FB page shut down without warning, and appeals have -- so far -- fallen on deaf ears.   Hundreds of thousands of customers suddenly cannot see this company's FB page.   The company prefers to remain anonymous to avoid endangering its appeal..."

"migrants"/ "refugees"/ "asylees"/ invaders/ terrorists/ cross-border criminals and the fall of Western Civilization
"Whether a massive movement of foreign peoples is a migration, an invasion, or a conquest is a matter of perspective.   To the ancient Romans and later Romance historians, the migration of Germanic tribes into the empire in the 5th and 6th centuries was a catastrophic foreign invasion.   To the Germanic peoples themselves, it was known as the Volkwanderung (the migration of the people).   There is a profound irony that as waves of Muslim migrants press into Germanic Europe, that the very civilization they are now undermining was created in a series of migrations seen by the civilized people they replaced as an invasion.   And just as Germanic tribal movements proved inexorable against the politically, economically, and morally weakened Roman state (at least in Western Europe), it appears (barring dramatic reversals of policy and will) that the ongoing wave of Muslim migration will inevitably replace European civilization as we know it.   Even more worrisome, if history is any guide, this will happen long before Muslims become a majority there..."

the brain drain: old myths, new realities
"In 2000 the British government and the Wolfson Foundation, a research charity, launched a 5-year research award that raised little attention outside scientific circles.   The £20M scheme aims to attract the return of Britain's leading expatriate scientists and the migration of top young researchers to the United Kingdom.   That same year under greater media coverage, the US congress announced it was raising the annual cap on the number of temporary work visas granted to [cheap, young, pliant, low-skilled labor with flexible ethics] under its H-1B visa programme [which has no skill-level requirements], from 115K to 195K per year until 2003...   the British Royal Society first coined the expression “brain drain” to describe the outflow of scientists and technologists to [the United States of America] and Canada in the 1950s and early 1960s...   migration between OECD countries is also on the rise but appears dominated by temporary flows of advanced students, researchers, managers and 'IT' specialists, suggesting more a pattern of brain circulation than a draining of skills from one place to another.   The globalisation of firms has helped fuel temporary flows; in the mid-1990s intra-company transfers accounted for 5%-10% of the total flows of...workers to [the United States of America] from Canada.   The [USA] is the main pole of attraction for foreign...workers; 40% of its foreign-born adult population have tertiary level education.   Since the early 1990s, some 900K [cheap, young, pliant laborers with flexible ethics], mainly 'IT' workers, from India, [Red China], Russia and a few OECD countries (including Canada, the UK and Germany) have migrated to the [USA] under the H-1B temporary visa programme.   The [USA] also takes in 32% of all foreign students studying in the OECD countries.   Indeed, higher education is an important channel for US firms recruiting [cheap, young, pliant laborers with flexible ethics] migrants; some 25% of H-1B visa holders in 1999 were previously students enrolled at USA universities...   Survey evidence on the share of foreign PhD graduates in science and technology who stay abroad show that 79% of 1990-91 doctoral recipients from India and 88% of those from China were still working in the United States in 1995.   In contrast, only 11% of Koreans and 15% of Japanese who earned science and engineering (S&E) doctorates from US universities in 1990-91 were working in the United States in 1995...   In Chinese Taipei, for example, half of all the companies emerging from that economy’s largest science park, Hsinchu, were started by returnees from the United States.   And in [Red China], the Ministry of Science and Technology estimates that returning over-seas students started most Internet-based ventures...   The International Organisation for Migration (IOM) estimates that some 300K professionals from the African continent live and work in Europe and North America.   By some estimates, up to a third of R&D professionals from the developing world are believed to reside in the OECD area.   While there are often media reports of successful Indian entrepreneurs in the United States who establish branches or even firms in India only a small number actually return; in 2000, it was estimated that some 1,500 highly qualified Indians returned from the United States, although more than 30 times that number depart each year.   The relative success of Chinese Taipei, Korea and Ireland in fostering return migration [and knowledge transfer from the USA] has been attributed to the opening of their economies and policies to foster domestic investments in innovation and R&D.   Developing countries with some infrastructure in R&D, like India, are more likely to attract the return of migrants, as well as money and business contacts.   “Scientific diaspora” and “immigrant entrepreneur networks” can also help sending countries capture benefits and know-how from emigrants over-seas...   Indian professionals in the USA have been the primary drivers of knowledge and capital flows to India.   The Indian government has contributed to the emergence of these private networks through legislative and tax rules that encourage remittances and investment from Indians abroad.   The diaspora idea has been put to work by advanced countries too, like Switzerland, whose on-line network, Swiss-List.com was established to encourage networking among Swiss scientists in the USA and to foster contacts with peers in Switzerland..."

centuries of Gazan=Palestinian hatred of Jews/Hebrews/Israelis
"Palestinians are on the wrong track and will not get off it until the outside world demands better of them.   News comes every year or two of a campaign of violence spurred by Palestinian political and religious leaders spreading wild-eyed conspiracy theories (the favorite: al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem is under threat).   A spasm of unprovoked violence against Israelis then follows: rocket attacks from Gaza=Palestine, car-rammings in Israel proper, stone-throwing in [Eastern Israel], street stabbings in Jerusalem.   Eventually, the paroxysm peters out, only to start up again not too much later.   True, these bouts of violence bring some gains to the Palestinians; in the United Nations, in faculty lounges, and on the streets of Western cities they win support against Israel.   Each round ends, however, with the Palestinians in a worse place in terms of dead and wounded, buildings destroyed and an economy in tatters.   Further, their immoral and barbaric actions harden Israeli opinion, making the prospect of concessions and compromise that much less likely.   The cheery Israeli hopes of 2 decades ago for a 'partner for peace' and a 'New Middle East' long ago gave way to a despair of finding acceptance.   As a result, security fences are going up all over, even in Jerusalem, to protect Israelis who increasingly believe that separation, not cooperation, is the way forward..."
It is interesting that the Jewish view, to the best of my knowledge, has always been that the Muslims were welcome to retain their 2 mosques on the Temple Mount, if they'd only, in a fair and equitable manner, let the Jewish people reach their Temple.   Similarly, Israel has offered to let them have their Palestine=Gaza Strip if only they'd stop attacking people in Israel.

how to make a mess of higher education
"...Tuition over the past 4 decades has nearly quadrupled.   And contrary to what college presidents would have you believe, this is not because of deep cuts in public funding.   As a recent piece in The New York Times noted, government spending on higher ed 'has increased at a much faster rate than government spending in general.   For example, the military's budget is about 1.8 times [as high today as] it was in 1960, while legislative appropriations to higher education are more than 10 times higher...   State appropriations reached a record inflation-adjusted high of $86.6G in 2009.   They declined as a consequence of the Great Recession, but have since risen to $81G.'   Government financial aid also has soared.   Federal spending on Pell Grants -- given to college-bound students from families making less than $60K a year -- has roughly tripled in nominal terms since 2002, and more than doubled after adjusting for inflation..."

GOP's opportunity for criminal justice reforms
"...In an article that has stirred considerable discussion since it appeared this past summer in the Georgetown Law Journal, Alex Kozinski of the [U.S. court of Appeals for the 9th Circus] provides facts and judgments that should disturb everyone, but especially African Americans, whose encounters with the criminal justice system are dismayingly frequent and frequently dismaying.   Eyewitness testimony is, Kozinski says, 'highly unreliable, especially where the witness and the perpetrator are of different races'.   Mistaken eyewitnesses figured in 34% of wrongful convictions in the data-base of the National Registry of Exonerations.   Finger-print evidence, too, has 'a significant error rate', as does spectrographic voice identification (error rates up to 63%) and hand-writing identification (error rates average 40%).   Many defendants have spent years in prison 'based on evidence by arson experts who were later shown to be little better than witch doctors'.   DNA evidence is reliable when properly handled but is only as good as are the fallible testing labs.   'Much of what we do in the courtroom relies', Kozinski [wrote], 'on human memory.'   But the more we learn about the way memories are 'recorded, stored and retrieved', the less confidence we can have that memories are undistorted and unembellished by the mind or external influences.   And courts rarely allow expert testimony on memory..."

"Master-Sergeant Joshua Wheeler died after being shot an Oct. 22 during a joint U.S.A.-Kurdish raid on an ISIL/ ISIS/ Daesh/ IS/ caliphate prison, where dozens of prisoners believed to have been facing execution within hours were freed.   In the course of a press briefing at the Pentagon on Friday, Defense secretary Ashton Carter at one point said he envisaged more such Special Forces raids in the future, and said that that 'doesn't represent us assuming a combat role' but instead marks a 'continuation' of the mission to train and assistant Iraqi forces fighting ISIL/ ISIS/ Daesh/ IS/ caliphate.   Carter said he had said from the start that 'when we find opportunities to do things that will effectively prosecute the campaign, we're going to do that'..."

bureaubums & Islamic extremists conspire against parents in Tennessee for cultural jihad
"A group of parents in White county [TN], about 100 miles east of Nashville, are taking the fight to the 7 publicly elected county school board members in that county who approved the purchase of the new Islam-centric text-book that elaborates on those standards, _myWorld History and Geography: The Middle Ages to Exploration of the Americas_, published by Pearson Education.   [Ah, but there is a connection.   If not for the extreme muslims cutting off the trade routes to Asia, and their pirates attacking shipping in the Mediterranean and in the waters between eastern Afria and India, cousin Henry, the explorer, and others would not have been seeking alternate routes.]   Our friend Michael Patrick Leahy of Breitbart has been documenting the struggle of parents across Tennessee who have risen-up to oppose the use of the public schools to sell the false narrative that Islam is a 'religion of peace', and not a political movement whose goal is a totalitarian worldwide Islamic Caliphate.   The current uprising says Leahy pits Tennessee parents against Republican governor Bill Haslam, the Tennessee Department of Education, the large and powerful multi-national text-book publisher Pearson Education, the state's educational bureaucrats, unaccountable local county school directors, and their far too compliant local school boards.   The involvement of Pearson Education is particularly controversial notes Leahy since its parent corporation, London based Pearson PLC, is partially owned by the Libyan Investment Authority.   With 3% of Pearson's outstanding stock, the Libyan Investment Authority is one of its largest shareholders...   there is an almost 30-year connection between Libya and radical anti-American Islamists like Louis Farrakhan and anti-American race baiters like [Barack Hussein Obummer's] spiritual mentor reverend Jeramiah Wright.   According to Leahy's analysis of reporting by The Washington DC Times and The Financial Times, the Libyan Investment Authority was founded by Muammar Gaddafi's son, Seif al-Islam; more than five Gaddafi family members own shares.   The Council on Islamic Relations [CAIR], Turkey, Saudi Arabia, and the Muslim Brotherhood invested in Pearson Education through the Libyan Investment Authority.   CAIR was found to be a Muslim Brotherhood front group by a federal judge in the largest terrorism trials in American history and was recently designated terrorist organization by the United Arab Emirates, so its involvement in the forced teaching of Islam in Tennessee's public schools should come as no surprise.   Leahy points out that CAIR has inserted itself into the Tennessee 7th grade Social Studies standards political battle, even though barely 1% of the state's population self-identifies as Muslim.   The group has publicly criticized the state legislator [see our article Tennessee representative Sheila Butt Might Just Save America] who has introduced legislation to prohibit the teaching of religious doctrine prior to the tenth grade in Tennessee.   A number of Tennessee parents also claim that CAIR has provided supplementary materials used by some Tennessee school districts to support the new 7th grade standards.   One reason for CAIR's interest in Tennessee is that it has the highest percentage of Evangelical Christians of any state in its population, according to a recent Pew Research Poll on religion in America.   As a result, Tennessee may be the 'tip of the spear' in attempts to crush public opposition to Islamization..."

"The plan for the USS Lassen, an Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer, to sail within 12 miles of the man-made islands came 6 weeks after U.S.A. law-makers urged a senior Department of Defense official to do just that, to make it clear to [Red China] that the U.S.A. does not recognize its sovereignty claims in the South China Sea...   U.S.A. defense officials speaking on background told media outlets the USS Lassen, which is forward deployed at Yokosuka, Japan, would patrol near the Subi and Mischief reefs, and that a U.S. Navy surveillance plane would likely accompany it.   A defense official subsequently told the Associated Press that the patrol, which had been approved by the White House, had been completed without incident.   [Red China] is engaged in disputes with the Philippines, VietNam, Malaysia, Brunei and Taiwan [the Republic of China] over resource-rich areas of the South China Sea, an area that includes some of the world's most important shipping trade corridors..."

"While I am inclined to disagree in large part with the late Prussian statesman Otto Eduard Leopold von Bismarck, the one thing I cannot disagree with are his words: 'Only a fool learns [only] from his own mistakes.   The wise man learns from the mistakes of others.'   Our Founding Fathers learned from the governmental tyranny they and their ancestors had lived under and determined that such governmental tyranny would not be tolerated in America.   It can be empirically argued that they succeeded for a period of time.   But those following the Greatest Generation, i.e., the baby boomers and the Gen Xers, have not learned from the mistakes they have made.   They instead have taken replicating those mistakes to unparalleled levels.   [The USA's] Founding Fathers and those Americans of the Great Depression and World War 2 eras were not without fear, but fear did not prevent them from making the right decisions based on the eras preceding them.   But the baby boomers and the Gen Xers use fear as the excuse to enable evil men to destroy heretofore the greatest nation on earth.   And nowhere is there a more transpicuous example than the election process.   The election process since the first Kennedy-Nixon debate has evolved into an exercise not predicated upon candidates telling the truth but rather candidates saying whatever it takes to get elected.   These candidates are managed by a shadowy camarilla who serve at the pleasure of an even more obscure collection of persons intent upon creating a zeitgeist of political conformity designed to retain the power of a few but not the freedom of the whole..."

will of the people?!?   common sense?!?   no thanks, we're congress
"Last week, senate Dems/Reds/leftists blocked a bill introduced by senator David Vitter (R-LA) and others designed to reverse the trend of certain state and local governments toward creating 'sanctuaries' within which [illegal aliens, and especially those illegal aliens who have been convicted of committing additional crimes] are shielded from the reach of immigration enforcement agents by denying police and sheriff's offices the ability to cooperate with the agents.   It was a disappointing defeat because it was a pretty good bill as such things go and, more importantly, it would have contributed to public safety because many of these criminals are recidivists who commit violent crimes, including murder, when released back to the streets by police in lieu of being handed over to the immigration authorities for removal.   Worse, it was not as if the vote didn't garner a majority -- it did, 54 to 45.   But under the bizarre rules permitted by senate majority-leader Mitch McConnell, a Republican, to 'really' pass the bill needed 60 votes, a super-majority.   Why? Because absent that super-majority, the Dems/Reds/leftists could filibuster the rule [i.e. vote against any motion for cloture] and put it into perpetual spin, like an out-of-control dryer [and wear Reds/Dems/leftists down to stinking puddles on the senate chamber floor, at which point you summon all the reliable Republicans back to the chamber and bring the bill to a simple majority vote].   McConnell says, and even said prior to being elevated to majority-leader, that he doesn't favor 'turning the senate into a majoritarian institution'.   What a curious suggestion in a [constitutionally limited representative] democracy.   Do we need a 'super-majority' to elect our president?   One suspects that by preserving the rule [what rule is that?], McConnell is looking toward the day when Republicans might once again be in the minority, but it sure looks to me like he's hastening that if the American people can't count on solid progress toward things as basic as deporting alien felons.   That, after all, is why more Republicans were elected to the senate last go-round.   The thinking is doubly flawed because there's no reason to believe that a future Democratic majority-leader will be so fastidious in keeping the rule.   Be that as it may, Vitter's bill went down in flames almost exactly on party lines, with only 2 Dems/leftists/Reds voting yes and only one Republican voting no.   Interestingly, [senator Lindsey Grahamnesty] (R-SC), who would have us think of him as presidential material and who is such a hawk where fighting on foreign soil is concerned, opted not to vote on the bill.   The defeat angered the families of deceased victims killed by alien criminals, who appeared in Washington to let their dissatisfaction be known.   Meanwhile, in congress's other chamber, representative Joaquin Castro ([RINO-TX) has introduced a bill, apparently along with 50 Democratic co-sponsors, to strike the word 'alien' from all federal government references, substituting instead the less precise [and more cumbersome] phrase 'foreign national'.   One of those co-sponsors, representative Ruben Gallego (D-AZ), is quoted as saying, 'The term alien is dehumanizing and offensive'[, he claimed], and contributes to...prejudice and xenophobia.'   Wow.   Growing up as an army brat, and throughout my adult life, I've lived and traveled in other countries for both professional and personal reasons, for long periods and short.   I was, without doubt, an alien in those lands and regarded myself as that way -- albeit one interested in being a polite law-abiding guest while there, something that often seems lacking here.   I had no idea I was engaging in an act of such self-loathing by considering myself an 'alien'.   I'm glad representative Gallego has opened my eyes to the wrong I've been doing myself and others, and it's wonderful that he intends to rectify this.   I'm hoping he can go further, though, and find a way to purge the various offensive, dehumanizing, and xenophobic dictionaries that dot the landscape by listing that vile 5-letter word.   Then there's that pesky phrase in the Declaration of Independence, that 'all men...are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights'.   It will sound so much better when government reproductions of our cherished founding document will be translated by the magic of this bill to 'all men...are endowed by their Creator with certain unforeignnationalable rights'.   The euphony is glorious.   It's good to know that the steadfast men and women of this congress are going so diligently and substantively about the public's business."

"The 3 teens police believe killed a high school student in [Loudoun county VA] last month all entered the U.S.A. as illegal immigrant children, were released into society and skipped their deportation court hearings, a top senator revealed Tuesday as he demanded answers.   'Had these suspects appeared for their mandatory court date, they would have likely not had the opportunity to murder a 17-year-old high school student from Loudoun county.', senator Charles E. Grassley, chairman of the Judiciary committee, said in a letter to Homeland Security [DHS] secretary Jeh Johnson.   Mr. Grassley said his committee has received information that the 3 suspects all entered the U.S.A. as part of the surge of illegal immigrant children that jumped the southwest border over the last few years, and said 2 of the 3 may have had ties to MS-13.   Danny Centeno-Miranda was killed Sept. 4.   One 17-year-old class-mate, a Mexican, has been charged with murder, while the 2 teens with gang ties have both been charged as accessories to the shooting and with possession of a firearm while in the country illegally.   Mr. Grassley said the gang ties should have been red flags to Homeland Security, which even as it eases enforcement on most illegal immigrants has insisted it remains vigilant about deporting gang members..."

the leftist media war against public comment features
"...It's no accident that so many of the loudest voices against online comments sections are also political zealots.   Jessica Valenti, Arthur Chu, Tauriq Moosa, Anita Sarkeesian: all have come out against comment sections.   This isn't an accident, of course.   Psychologists have long been aware that political extremists have the most negative reactions to contrary information.   Combine that with a disdain for free speech, a core cultural authoritarian value, and you get a frantic rush to remove the opinions of ordinary people.   But there are also more sinister, elitist motivations...   when the opinions of journalists and the opinions or ordinary members of the public are placed close together, it leads readers to question the competence of the mainstream media..."

is the GOP now Paul Ryan's party? K street's party?
"...The Export-Import Bank was reauthorized in 2014 September, but only for 9 months.   Most senate Republicans (31 out of 54) have voted against renewing it this year, and most House Republicans want it dead, too.   The majority-leaders in both chambers -- Kevin McCarthy and Mitch McConnell -- also favor letting Ex-Im expire.   So do the relevant committee chairmen, Jeb Hensarling in the House and Richard Shelby in the senate.   Given that firm opposition from the GOP's majority and [even] its [losership], Ex-Im's charter expired June 30.   Monday and Tuesday, Fincher and [former] House speaker Nancy Pelosi easily won the votes to pass their bill reviving Ex-Im and extending its charter for 5 years.   This is no guarantee the bill will become law.   McConnell says he has no interest in bringing such a standalone Ex-Im bill to the senate floor [and similarly, a good Republican House speaker would table many such crony socialist and outright leftist/Dem/Red bills]...   Ryan, for years, supported corporate welfare.   Under Bush, Ryan voted for Ex-Im, the Medicare prescription drug benefit, the Wall Street bail-out and the Detroit bail-out.   [But] Since the late 2008 bail-out bonanza, Ryan has had the zeal of a convert against corporate welfare...   Paul Ryan is no libertarian...   [What would speaker Daniel Webster, or a speaker Newt Gingrich, or a speaker Jason Chaffetz, or a speaker Trey Gowdy, or a speaker Tom Cotton, or a senate majority leader Jeff Sessions, or senate majority leader Mike Lee table it or let the crony socialist Export-Import Bank be re-born?]

the myth of compromise: the case against Paul Ryan
"The Freedom Caucus will make a momentous decision this week.   They will either stand up for the constituents who elected them and begin changing Washington's culture of kleptocracy OR they will elect Paul Ryan as speaker of the House.   But let's begin with a bit of history.   After adding $6T to the national debt under the presidency of George W. Bush [a.k.a. Shrub] and a mostly Republican congress, the Republican party had little to offer the American people.   In the 2008 wave, [Barack Hussein Obummer and the Reds/leftists/Dems] campaigned on a platform of war ending and new domestic spending.   Traditionally, the Republican party would counter such a platform with calls for fiscal responsibility, but, with their track record, the GOP didn't have a leg to stand on.   In 2009, [president Barack Hussein Obummer and his Dem/leftist/Red] super-majority presided over the first trillion-dollar deficit.   They passed [two $1T porkulus packages], then proposed [ObummerDoesn'tCare], a multi-trillion-dollar new entitlement.   The Republican party, unable to credibly make a case for conservative governance, left millions of voters voiceless.   So we took to the streets.   Thousands of local tea party groups sprang up in cities and towns from coast to coast, renewing calls for fiscal responsibility, breathing new life into a conservative philosophy that had been abandoned by Washington Republicans and Dems/leftists/Reds alike.   In 2010, scores of Republicans were sent to Washington, not because of, but in spite of Republican stewardship.   The tea party movement saved the Republican Party.   And for all of our tea party efforts, what was our reward?   John Boehner.   Saying that John Boehner was a weak leader is like saying that the Challenger experienced difficulties after take-off.   [Boehner was never a weak leader; he was an eager loser, i.e. a partisan of the left in Republican clothing.]   After surfing to his speakership at the crest of the largest political wave in eight decades, Boehner could have reminded [president Obummer] that elections have consequences.   He could have squeezed the federal purse tight and ushered in a new era of fiscal responsibility.   He could have led.   But he didn't.   He acquiesced almost immediately, insisting that he only controlled 'one half of one third' of the federal government.   If only someone had told him that, in the federal system designed by our Founders, one half of one third is perfectly capable of wagging the dog.   Consider 2 hypotheticals.   The president wants to add $100G in new spending to the annual budget.   Congress talks him down to an increase of only $50G.   Congress wants to cut $100G from the annual budget.   The president talks them into cutting just $50G.   Each is an example of a compromise.   The former is a compromise on progressive terms.   The latter is a compromise on conservative terms.   Each is equally within the realm of the possible.   With roughly half of the country represented by Republicans and half by Dems/Reds/leftists, one might presume that Washington compromises are evenly split.   They're not.   Astoundingly and unfortunately, compromising on [leftist] terms is how the federal government has -- without exception -- conducted itself for nearly two decades.   The most recent pause in progressivism’s creep was in 1997, when Speaker Newt Gingrich orchestrated a balanced budget.   In 2010 and 2014, Republicans were sent to Washington in droves, in landslide elections.   They were not sent to slow government growth.   They were sent to stop it.   They were sent to reverse [leftism's regress, that is, to let the USA progress], to reduce the size, power and reach of the federal government.   Under John Boehner, they failed.   And Paul Ryan was in lock-step with speaker Boehner.   Ryan derided Boehner's critics, often came to his defense, and, as chairman of the Ways and Means committee, Paul Ryan enabled and facilitated government growth [over-spending].   Instead of finding common cause with the tea party and the Freedom Caucus, Ryan considers them an annoyance and an impediment.   Like Boehner, he's engaged in retaliatory measures against conservatives who criticize him.   Within the Washington bubble, there's an inertia toward [leftism].   Republicans and Democrats alike succumb to it.   They allow ear-marks [a.k.a. pork] to replace their convictions and lobbyists to replace their constituents.   The Freedom Caucus has stood against that inertia.   Since 2010, the Freedom Caucus has grown in size and influence because it has gained support from those outside of the Washington bubble.   The Freedom Caucus is the one bulwark within the federal government that threatens the status quo, that champions limited government, that remains loyal to the voters who sent them there in the first place.   Paul Ryan cannot win the speakership without their help.   If they hold true to their convictions, they will not help him.   Editors' Note: With her bold and eloquent announcement and her statement demanding new conservative leadership on Capitol Hill Becky Gerritson has become the leading figure in the 2016 class of limited government constitutional conservative candidates for congress.   We urge you to read her announcement speech in its entirety and then ask yourself if this is the kind of bold conservative leadership that you would like for your congressional district -- if it is we urge you to do 2 things; go to http://beckyforcongress.com/ [Becky for Congress] to support Becky Gerritson's campaign and then look for a candidate like her to run in your Republican congressional primary."

who is responsible for the rise in violent crimes in anti-arms cities?
Jewish World Review
World Net Daily
"...Whether we like it or not, easily observed physical characteristics -- such as race, sex, height and age -- convey information.   That's because there is often a correlation between those characteristics and other characteristics not so easily observed.   Say that you're a police commander faced with the task of finding vandals responsible for slashing car tires and smashing windows.   How much of the city's resources would you expend investigating 60- to 70-year-old Chinese men? You probably wouldn't spend resources on any men in that age group.   So who is responsible for your decision not to investigate 60- to 70-year-old Chinese men and other men of the same age?   If you said it's the behavioral reputation of that demographic as a group, you'd be absolutely right..."

"Sam Schwartz grew up a typical teen in the 1960s, desperate for a car.   Finally, he got one: a Chevy Impala with huge, flat fins.   Like everyone else in his Brooklyn neighborhood, he spent an inordinate amount of time waxing his beloved.   Pull up next to him at a stop-light? He'd gun it.   He was such a car fanatic that in between getting his physics degree at Brooklyn College and getting his master's at UPenn in -- what else? -- civil engineering with an eye toward traffic planning [what else? he could have gone straight for automotive engineering with specialization in chassis, power-plant, passenger compartment design...], he worked as a cabby.   Eventually, Schwartz became New York City's chief transit commissioner, and he even wrote a book on traffic short-cuts.   But these days?   'I don't think I've driven my car in 3 weeks.   It's gathering a lot of dust.'   We're sitting in the buzzing Manhattan office of Sam Schwartz Engineering, surrounded by brainy-looking millennials doing the work he is dedicated to today: figuring out how to get more people out of their cars and onto subways, buses, street-cars, bikes and their own 2 feet...   The [open borders, soaring over-population, over-croding gang think the] future belongs to the places that can pack us in and get us around."

un-ruly: dos, Jews, and don'ts
"My wife teaches English and was wxplaining rules and regulations to her students.   When she asked for examples, they came up with things like 'Don't fight' and 'Don't steal'.   Her students were mostly recent immigrants, and it took every bit of doing to explain the distinctions and subtleties of the terminology.   Teaching the difference between moral principles and man-made rules and regulations is not so simple, especially because teaching Heavenly Law in public school is against the rules.   My wife explained that not wearing a hat in (public) school is a rule.   Not hurting people is a moral obligation.   That's on a different plane.   The Oxford ESL Dictionary defines rule: 'an official statement that tells you what you can or cannot do, say, etc.'   Then it adds a note [a little off the mark]: 'A law is stronger.   You can be officially punished if you break it.'   It defines morals as 'standards or principles of good behavior'.   William Safire explained why politicians no longer talk about 'principles'.   They only talk about 'values'.   Principles are eternal truths.   Values change; principles are sacrosanct.   Politicians deal in values because they are expedient -- they stand on a moving platform of self-interest, not a bed-rock foundation of eternal truth..."

lessons from Leichtenstein: more referenda, please
"Europe is in the midst of a historic immigration crisis.   But the richest country in Europe -- one that doesn't have an army or border guards -- has barely been affected by the crisis.   Liechtenstein is the world's sixth smallest country, with a population of just 37,129.   The country, whose name means "bright stone" in German, has the highest gross domestic product per person in the world, when adjusted by purchasing power parity, and an unemployment rate of about 2%.   While Liechtenstein was once one of the poorer nations in Europe, now some 20K Swiss and Austrians commute into Liechtenstein for work each week-day.   Many live outside the country because land is scarce in Liechtenstein and prices are high.   Others simply cannot get residency permits, let alone citizenship..."
Yes, before the first federal immigration law in the 1790s, several states/colonies required both passing special legislation and a loyalty oath before anyone could become a citizen.

"Temporary Protected Status" goes far beyond blocking illegal aliens from being deported
"Newly released USCIS data on Temporary Protected Status for aliens from three West African nations shows that for every alien whose deportation is prevented, about 100 applications for TPS are received.   TPS is designed to avoid the forced departure of aliens back to their home countries when those countries are in the midst of a catastrophe of some kind, such as the out-break of ebola in Liberia, Sierra Leone, and Guinea early last year.   Clearly we should not be deporting people to a nation in the midst of an ebola epidemic, but TPS turns out to be a much more extensive program than simply postponing deportations for 6 months or a year, which would be a far better policy.   As noted in an earlier posting, TPS grants legal status for 18 months for all persons from a troubled nation who happen to be in the United States at the time, whether they are here legally or not.   The government routinely extends these 18-month periods again and again, so that these grants of legal status can run on for decades, as we described in some detail in a CIS Backgrounder last year..."

2 more former Disney workers displaced by H-1B guest-workers speak out; here's what the candidates have said about it
"This is perhaps one of the most under-discussed issues in the 2016 GOP presidential primary election.   Front-runner Donald Trump’s immigration reform plan details exactly how he would fix this problem if he's elected president.   He wants to 'increase' the 'prevailing wage for H-1Bs', one sub-section of his plan lays out.   Trump's immigration reform plan reads: 'We graduate two times more Americans with STEM degrees each year than find STEM jobs, yet as much as two-thirds of entry-level hiring for IT jobs is accomplished through the H-1B program...'...   Trump also wants a 'requirement to hire American workers first'.   'Too many visas, like the H-1B, have no such requirement.', the Trump plan continues.   'In the year 2015, with 92M Americans outside the work-force and incomes collapsing, we need companies to hire from the domestic pool of unemployed.   Petitions for workers should be mailed to the unemployment office, not USCIS.'   Other candidates, like former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee and former Pennsylvania senator Rick Santorum, have been strong like Trump on the issue.   Huckabee has hammered the issue many times -- even specifically calling out Disney for its practices -- on the campaign trail and in interviews with Breitbart News.   Santorum has as well, laying out on the trail how he wants a 25% reduction in legal immigration.   Other candidates, like senator Marco Rubio (R-FL), especially because of his work on the senate 'Gang of Eight' [a.k.a. the 8 Gangsters] amnesty bill [S744] last congress, and former Florida [governor Yebbie Boosh], Ohio governor John Kasich, and [senator Lindsey Grahamnesty (R-SC)], stand against American workers like Perrero and Powers with their policy positions of supporting an increase in H-1B levels..."

former employees continue to speak out against Disney's out-sourcing of high-tech to forein-based cross-border bodyshops
Rebecca Vargas: WWSB abc 7/My SunCoast
"Just months before the holidays and on the heels of a great performance review, no less.   A VP invites David Powers and Leo Perrero into his office, both expecting pats on the back.   Instead they hear the dreaded words: You are being laid off.   'When a guillotine falls down on you, in that moment you're dead... and I was dead.', says former Disney employee David Powers.   Powers and Perrero were two of the brains behind your magical Disney World experience.   For the past 10 years, both worked behind the scenes in the 'IT' field, using high-tech data to ensure all points of sale -- from tickets to resort stays -- were seamless for visitors.   Attaining some of the highest recognitions Disney could give, being let go was the last thing they expected...   Sarasota-based employment attorney Sara Blackwell, who is representing both men.   Blackwell tells us this isn't just a problem with Disney.   Companies, including Toys R Us, IBM and Verizon, have been contracting with companies and outsourcing work.   The reason: Loop-holes in the law that establishes the H-1B visa.   'H-1B, when done properly, is a great avenue.', she says.   'The [declared] purpose of H-1B is to bring in foreign workers, when there's no [able and willing] U.S. worker [i.e. citizen or someone who already has a green card].'   Blackwell says there are about 800K H-1B workers in the U.S.A...   Perrero says. 'I would never recommend this field to anybody that is a student.'   These highly specialized tech fields yield average salaries in the $100K range, but for the younger, foreign workers their median salary is about 62K -- some even less, according to published reports.   In response, Disney acknowledges it out-sourced Powers' and Perrero's jobs to Indian workers...   'People going into the tech field in college or in the universities, they probably won't have a job.', Blackwell says.   According to the latest U.S. Census Bureau data, only 26% of science and engineering graduates are currently employed in a STEM occupation.   'The grand-parents in Sarasota, in Manatee county, wherever, you don't want your kids coming out of college, your grand-kids coming [out] of college, and having no jobs.   The STEM programs a joke.', Powers says.   On top of the job loss, the 2 men told ABC 7 that training their Indian replacements -- at their own desks, no less -- stripped them of their dignity..."
Rush Limbaugh devoted a segment to this, today, saying that only after reading news on this over the last couple days did he finally understand what was going on.   He'd read about it months ago, but it didn't make sense to him.   But something about these latest reports got through to him.

Alfonso Aguilar claims the traditional remedy for illegal immigration -- deporation -- is "excessive & off the table"
"Aguilar, who claims to be a staunch believer in the rule of law, told Ingraham he did not believe that those living in the country illegally, under false identification, should be deported.   In fact, he said he believes deportation should be off the table as it is an 'excessive' penalty for the crime.   One caller introduced himself saying, 'I'm a Hispanic, but I'm also an American.'   He accused Aguilar of sounding 'very much like a' [leftist] and was outraged that the rights of illegals is prioritized over the rights of American citizens.   The caller voiced his support for Trump and denied claims by the Hispanic community that the real estate mogul is a racist saying, 'Shame on us as Americans if we ever support that thought that just for following the laws of this country, all of a sudden we're racist.'..."

why family structure matters
"In recent weeks, a barrage of new evidence has come to light demonstrating what was once common sense.   'Family structure matters' (in the words of my American Enterprise Institute colleague Brad Wilcox, who is also the director of the National Marriage Project at the University of Virginia).   Princeton University and the left-of-center Brookings Institution released a study that reported 'most scholars now agree that children raised by two biological parents in a stable marriage do better than children in other family forms across a wide range of outcomes'.   Why this is so is still hotly contested.   Another study, co-authored by Wilcox, found that states with more married parents do better on a broad range of economic indicators, including upward mobility for poor children and lower rates of child poverty.   On most economic indicators, the Washington Post summarized, 'the share of parents who are married in a state is a better predictor of that state's economic health than the racial composition and educational attainment of the state's residents'.   Boys in particular do much better when raised in a more traditional family environment, according to a new report from MIT.   This is further corroboration of Daniel Patrick Moynihan's famous 1965 warning: 'From the wild Irish slums of the 19th century Eastern seaboard, to the riot-torn suburbs of Los Angeles, there is one unmistakable lesson in American history: a community that allows a large number of men to grow up in broken families, dominated by women, never acquiring any stable relationship to male authority, never acquiring any set of rational expectations about the future -- that community asks for and gets chaos.'..."

NYTimes printed propaganda from Palestinian inciter of violence
"The column was posted 2014 Aug. 14, but I only discovered it this week in a link to another article commenting on the barrage of media lies and misrepresentations that attack Israel on a regular basis.   Written from Ramallah, [occupied Eastern Israel], by contributing op-ed writer Ali Jarbawi, 'a political scientist at Birzeit University and a former minister of the Palestinian Authority', the piece was titled 'Israel's Colonialism Must End' and reflected the perspective of a Palestinian writer with deep-seated grievances with Israel.   Jarbawi wrote: 'Over the years, Israel has used all forms of pressure to prevent the Palestinians from achieving their 'national rights and gaining independence'.   It hasn't been enough for Israelis to believe their own claims about Palestinians; they have sought incessantly to impose this narrative on the world and to have it adopted by their Western allies.'...   This was the charge that caught my attention, since I had just written an article contrasting the rhetoric in Israel, as hostile as it may be toward Palestinian terrorists, with the rhetoric in the mosques of [Palestine=Gaza Strip] and [occupied Eastern Israel], where the inflammatory sermons sometimes feature imams brandishing knives and suicide vests with which to slaughter and dismember the Jews...   I'm quite aware that, even within their own country speaking about fellow Israeli Jews, such as during elections, the insults and invective can be quite harsh.   But does it include calls to slaughter or rape the mothers of terrorists?...   When it comes to Shaked, the words in question were taken from a highly criticized post in Hebrew on her FB page that concluded by saying, 'Behind every terrorist stand dozens of men and women, without whom he could not engage in terrorism.   Actors in the war are those who incite in mosques, who write the murderous curricula for schools, who give shelter, who provide vehicles, and all those who honor and give them their moral support.   They are all enemy combatants, and their blood shall be on all their heads.   Now this also includes the mothers of the martyrs, who send them to hell with flowers and kisses.   They should follow their sons, nothing would be more just.   They should go, as should the physical homes in which they raised the snakes.   Otherwise, more little snakes will be raised there.'...   But she was not even the author of those words.   Instead, as she explained, 'It was written some 12 years ago, but never published, by a dear man, the recently departed journalist Uri Elitzur.   The gist of his article was that once one side in a war attacks the other side's civilians, they can no longer morally claim a special status for their own civilians.'   So, Shaked did not write the words calling for the destruction of the homes of terrorists, nor did she (or Elitzur) call for the murder of the mothers of terrorists but rather wished that the mothers who praised their terrorist sons should follow them to hell..."

"U.S. representative Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL), introduced legislation on Tuesday to defund a United Nations agency she says is 'tied to foreign terrorist organizations'.   Last year, there were multiple incidents in which schools in [Gaza=Palestine] run by the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) were reportedly used to store and launch rockets used by Hamas and/or Palestinian Islamic Jihad to attack Israeli targets.   Both groups are designated as foreign terrorist organizations by the State Department.   In 2014, UNRWA received $408.7M from the U.S.A., which is its largest contributor, the congress-woman said.   The UNRWA Anti-Incitement and Anti-Terrorism Act would withhold U.S.A. contributions unless the Secretary of State certifies that no UNRWA employees or recipients of UNRWA funds 'are associated with foreign terrorist organizations or are propagating anti-American, anti-Israel, or anti-Semitic rhetoric, propaganda, or incitement'..."

senator Ted Cruz: CNBC & other media tried to get Republicans to tear into each other while the media fawn over Reds/leftists/Dems
"The main-stream media came in for scathing criticism during Wednesday night's GOP presidential debate, with senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) accusing moderators of trying to get Republican hopefuls to 'tear into each other' in contrast to 'fawning' over candidates in an earlier Dem/leftist/Red 'debate'.   Cruz won enthusiastic applause when he upbraided the CNBC moderators over the nature of some of the questions being put to the 10 candidates on the platform at University of Colorado Boulder.   'The questions asked in this debate illustrate why the American people don't trust the media', he began, setting aside a question he had been asked on the debt limit.   'This is not a cage match.   And if you look at the questions -- Donald Trump, are you a comic book villain? Ben Carson, can you do math? John Kasich, will you insult 2 people over here? Marco Rubio, why don't you resign [from the senate]? Jeb Bush, why have your numbers fallen?   How about talking about the substantive issues people care about?', Cruz challenged the moderators, before being drowned out by cheers from the audience...."

eureka!   CDCP reports that DC leads the USA in per capita cost of excessive ethanol consumption
"Researchers measured 26 cost components to estimate the total cost imposed by excessive alcohol consumption in 2010 for each of the 50 states and the District of Columbia.   They found that the total cost of of excessive drinking hit $1,526 per capita in DC -- higher than any of the 50 states.   The per capita cost to government of excessive drinking in Washington, DC, was $619, or 87 cents for every drink poured in the nation's capital..."
I think they left a lot of the costs out of their calculations.

  "After he aborted the rescue mission , [pres. James E. Carter] reverted to his preferred tactic -- waiting. As a result of pres. Carter's failure to defend his emissaries, American diplomats suffered a rash of bombings and other assorted acts of terror. Julius Caesar, OTOH, immediately sent his legions into Gaul to battle those who had laid hands on his emissaries. After defeating the enemy, Caesar's troops methodically slaughtered all the males remaining alive and sold all of the woman and children into slavery. From that time forward, Caesar's diplomats served unmolested." --- G. Gordon Liddy 2002 _When I Was a Kid, This Was a Free Country_ pp86-87

the case of Mozzafar Khazee becomes even more curious and troubling
"In January of last year, I wrote about the 'curious and troubling case' of Mozzafar Khazaee, a native of Iran, a naturalized American, and a defense contractor with access to classified materials who got caught passing some of those materials on to organs of the Islamic Republic of Iran.   That blog was one of many I've written that question the gaping holes in our immigration vetting systems -- holes largely unexamined by the media, the public, and, most depressingly, our own government, perhaps because to acknowledge them would require a serious look in the dark places where this administration doesn't want to go.   (See, for instance, here, here, here, and here.)   Last week, an unrepentant Khazaee -- described in news reports as a 'dual citizen', something I remarked upon in my earlier blog -- was sentenced to 8 years in prison, despite his mother's plea for leniency because she depends upon him here in the USA for support.   (How sadly ironic that is on so many levels.)   And what has happened since sentencing? The Islamic Republic of Iran, the nation he supposedly renounced when he took his oath of naturalization -- the nation that is unambiguously not providing succor to his mother -- publicly blasted the USA: 'Arrest and imprisonment of...Iranian nationals by the U.S. government on baseless and unfounded reasons is unacceptable.'     So which is Khazaee: an Iranian or a U.S.A. national?     One suspects the Iranians have it right, not on the 'baseless and unfounded' part, but almost certainly about where both his heart and his head lie.   Taking the oath of naturalization was no more than a sham designed to get the job and clearances he needed to send home classified information to aid the mullahs in propping up their extremist military organization.   But not to worry, he got caught.   No need to concern ourselves with who else might be out there, undetected, wreaking havoc on our national security after having been given the privilege of living and working here.   Just another example of 'risk management' at work at the Department of Homeland Security [DHS] and its subordinate agencies, including U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Services [USCIS], the one that passes out immigration benefits like Halloween candy."

Trump's non-reversal in last night's "debate" (and Rubio's)
"...After posting the best platform on H-1B I'd ever seen by a major [party candidate for president], trump back-pedaled the very next day, saying that he hadn't been referring to the H-1Bs hired from among foreign students at USA universities.   It is this group of H-1Bs...which Trump was alluding to last night in statements such as, 'I am all in favor of keeping these talented people here so they can go to work in Silicon Valley.'   I stated at the time that Trump's sudden reversal then was apparently due to the fact that 'Someone got to him.'.   Given that last night Trump referred to Mark Zuckerberg, who has been out-spoken in support of liberalized policies on H-1B and immigration in general (and of whom Trump had been critical), as 'Mark', we see that the one who 'got to him' may have in fact been 'Mark'...   Rubio, OTOH, is perceived as havign changed course in the other direction in the debate, towards more caution concerning H-1B, and again that perception is probably sadly naive.   Like most politicians (though unlike Trump), any statement Rubio makes on a major issue is the result of deliberate calculation [and coaching, and memorization of exact phrases to use], and on the subject of immigration, Rubio's calculations are made with the advice of a top expert -- prominent immigration attorney Enrique Gonzalez H-1B law is byzantine, and it is easy to come up with reforms that are (by design) just as loop-hole-laden as the present H-1B + green card statutes, but look good to the public...   I, myself, have stated often how important it is to hire GOOD programmers, people who are really sharp.   But [the comment from one of Rubio's staff] is way out of line.   I know plenty of very high-quality Americans, especially those over 35, who face real challenges in the labor market, and lose jobs to H-1Bs.   Even in the Disney case, it has been reported that the USA workers had gotten stellar performance reviews not long before being [dumped].   If that staffer's view reflects that of Rubio, his comments about adding worker protections are worthless."

Hitlery Rotten Clinton, the 2012-09-11 attack on the USA consular facilities at Benghazi, and the real scandal
"...But now, with Hillary Clinton's 'wiped' e-mails retrieved, we know the truth.   Within hours after the attack, Clinton had told her daughter Chelsea that the attack was 'planned' by 'an al-Qaida-like group'.   Even more explicitly, Clinton told the Egyptian prime minister the next day, 'We know that the attack in Libya had nothing to do with the film.   It was a planned attack, not a protest.'   That no security was available for the U.S. consulate in Benghazi -- notwithstanding ambassador Stevens' multiple requests for it -- is incomprehensible.   That Hillary Clinton now claims that Stevens was joking about security is even more absurd.   But in many ways, the aftermath of last week's testimony has the most far-reaching implications.   It was proven that the [Obummer regime] had lied, for the most craven, politically expedient reasons.   What response by the U.S.A. media? Crickets..."

See the CDCP press release about excessive consumption of ethanol in DC.   It may explain a lot.   It is interesting from an historical perspective, in that it used to be that people consumed a lot of ethanol because of microbes in the water.   Even children drank beer, for instance.   But we've long suspected there was some contaminant in the water in DC which caused people who went there to lose their minds after just a few weeks.   Now we see that it may well be the booze.

"Massachusetts girls posted the highest math scores (299) in the U.S.A. on the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) tests administered to eighth graders this year, besting their male counterparts in the state (295) by 4 points.   Thanks to their strong showing, Massachusetts took the top overall slot, scoring a nationwide high of 297 on the eighth grade math assessments, which is well above the national average of 281.   Massachusetts' closest competitor was Minnesota, with an overall score of 294.   The District of Columbia brought up the rear, posting an overall eighth grade math score (263) that was significantly below the national average.   But it was the boys in Massachusetts who scored the highest in the nation (253) on NAEP's fourth grade math tests, beating the national average (240) by more than 10 points.   With assistance from fourth grade girls (248), Massachusetts also posted the top overall scores in fourth-grade math (251), edging out Minnesota (250), New Hampshire (249), Virginia and Wyoming (both 247) for the honor.   Alabama, the District of Columbia and New Mexico were tied for last place (231), with their overall fourth grade math scores nearly ten points lower than the national average, according to the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES)..."

congress needs transparency before it could consider resettlement of "Syrian" "migrants"/ "refugees"/ "asylees"/ invaders/ terrorists/ cross-border criminals
"The [Obummer regime] has announced its intention to resettle a minimum of ten thousand Syrian refugees in the U.S.A.   I have significant compassion for refugees fleeing the Islamic State, but the Department of Health and Human Services' (HHS's) Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) has not been transparent or accountable in the past.   ORR's involvement in the resettlement of tens of thousands of illegal aliens from Central America during the summer of 2014 raised many concerns about its functioning.   Before we can begin a discussion about the resettlement of Syrian refugees, we must change the culture at ORR.   According to the State Department, the United States Refugees Admissions Program (USRAP) is comprised of several departments across government, including ORR.   My first experience with ORR came during the summer of 2014.   HHS sent representatives to Capitol Hill to brief members and staff on multiple occasions about resettlement services for Central Americans illegally surging into our country.   I also visited an ORR shelter for unaccompanied alien children (UAC) at Fort Sill, Oklahoma on 2014 July 12.   What I saw and heard based on these interactions was appalling and led me to initiate an investigation of ORR..."

know your enemy: the UN, agenda 21/"sustainable development", and the attack of the UN NGOs
"Americans must begin to understand that the debate over environmental issues have very little to do with clean water and air or community planning, and much more to do with the establishment of power.   NGOs are gaining it as locally-elected representatives are losing their rightful position to influence and guide policy on behalf of the citizens of their community who elected them.   The UN just wrapped up yet another international meeting attended by thousands of delegates and world leaders.   This time they introduced and unanimously approved the '2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development'.   This is the 17 Goal re-boot of Agenda 21 with plans to fully enforce it by 2030.     Many people ask me who writes these agendas and who attends these meetings.   And especially people ask how they wield so much power and influence over our government.   It's a vast matrix composed of both private Non-governmental Organizations (NGO) groups and representatives of the UN and representatives of a large number of US federal agencies -- all working together behind the scenes, quietly making policy for the rest of us.     They make fun of our efforts to expose and fight Agenda 21, calling it a conspiracy theory.   Through their condescending chuckles they boldly claim that Agenda 21 policy has no power of enforcement and that 'there are no Blue-helmeted troops at City Hall'.   The truth is the UN doesn't need troops at City Hall because they have a private army doing the job for them -- the NGOs working behind the scenes applying the pressure on elected officials.     One rarely hears of it.   Few elected officials raise an eye-brow.   The media makes no mention of it.   But power is slowly slipping away from our elected representatives.   In much the same way Mao Tse Tung had his Red Guards, so the UN has its NGOs.   They may well be your masters of tomorrow, and you don't even know who or what they are.     There are, in fact, 2 parallel, complimentary forces at work in the world, working together to advance the global 'sustainable development' agenda, ultimately leading toward UN global governance.   Those 2 forces are the UN itself and non-governmental organizations (NGOs).     Beginning with the United Nations, the infrastructure pushing the Sustainable Development agenda is a vast, international matrix.   At the top of the heap is the United Nations Environmental Program (UNEP).     Created in 1973 by the UN General Assembly, the UNEP is the catalyst through which the global environmental agenda is implemented.   Virtually all of the international environmental programs and policy changes that have occurred globally in the past three decades are the result of UNEP efforts.     But the UNEP doesn't operate on its own.   Influencing it and helping to write policy are thousands of non-governmental organizations (NGOs).   These are private groups which seek to implement a specific political agenda.   Through the UN infrastructure, particularly through the UNEP, they have great power.     The phrase 'non-governmental organization' came into use with the establishment of the United Nations Organization in 1945 with provisions in Article 71 of Chapter 10 of the United Nations Charter [and quango -- quasi-non-governmental organization -- quickly followed].   The term describes a consultative role for organizations that are neither government nor member states of the UN.     NGOs are not just any private group hoping to influence policy.   True NGOs are officially sanctioned by the United Nations.   Such status was created by UN Resolution 1296 in 1948, giving NGOs official 'consultative' status to the UN.   That means they can not only sit in on international meetings, but can actively participate in creating policy, right along side government representatives.     There are numerous classifications of NGO's.   The 2 most common are 'operational' and 'advocacy'.     Operational NGOs are involved with designing and implementing specific projects such as feeding the hungry or organizing relief projects.   These groups can be religious or secular.   They can be community-based, national or international.   The International Red Cross falls under the category of an operational NGO.     Advocacy NGOs are promoting a specific political agenda.   They lobby government bodies, use the news media and organize activist-oriented events, all designed to raise awareness and apply pressure to promote their causes which include environmental issues, human rights, poverty, education, children, drinking water, and population control -- to name a few.   Amnesty International is the largest 'human rights' advocacy NGO in the world.   Organized globally, it has more than 1.8M members, supporters and subscribers in over 150 countries.     Today these NGOs have power nearly equal to member nations when it comes to writing UN policy.   Just as civil service bureaucrats provide the infrastructure for government operation, so to do NGOs provide such infrastructure for the UN.   In fact, most UN policy is first debated and then written by the NGOs and presented to national government officials at international meetings for approval and ratification.   It is through this process that the individual political agendas of the NGO groups enter the international political arena.     The policies sometimes come in the form of international treaties or simply as policy guidelines.   Once the documents are presented to and accepted by representatives of member states and world leaders, obscure political agendas of private organizations suddenly become international policy, and are then adopted as national and local laws by UN member states.   Through this very system, 'sustainable development' has grown from a collection of ideas and wish lists of a wide variety of private organizations to become the most widely implemented tool in the UN's quest for global governance.     The 3 most powerful organizations influencing UNEP policy are 3 international NGOs.   They are the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF), the World Resources Institute (WRI) and the International Union for Conservation and Nature (IUCN).     These 3 groups provide the philosophy, objectives and methodology for the international environmental agenda through a series of official reports and studies such as: World Conservation Strategy, published in 1980 by all three groups; Global Biodiversity Strategy, published in 1992; and Global Biodiversity Assessment, published in 1996.     These groups not only influence UNEP's agenda, they also influence a staggering array of international and national NGOs around the world.   Jay Hair, former head of the National Wildlife Federation, one of the USA's largest environmental organizations, was also the president of the IUCN.   Hair later turned up as co-chairman of the 'Presidents Council on Sustainable Development'.     The WWF maintains a network of national chapters around the world, which influence, if not dominate, NGO activities at the national level.   It is at the national level where NGOs agitate and lobby national governments to implement the policies that the IUCN, WWF and WRI get written into the documents that are advanced by the UNEP.   In this manner, the world grows ever closer to global governance.     Other than treaties, how does UNEP policy become U.S. [government] policy? Specifically, the IUCN has an incredible mix of U.S. government agencies along with major U.S.A. NGOs as members.   Federal agencies include the Department of State, Department of Interior, Department of Agriculture, Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the National Park Service (NPS) the U.S. Forest Service (USFS) and the Fish and Wildlife service.   These agencies send representatives [paid by USA tax-victims] to all meetings of the UNEP.     Also attending those meetings as active members are NGO representatives.   These include activist groups such as the Environmental Defense Fund, National Audubon Society, The Nature Conservancy, National Wildlife Federation, Zero Population growth, Planned Parenthood, the Sierra Club, the National Education Association, and hundreds more.   These groups all have specific political agendas they desire to become law.   Through their official contact with government agencies working side-by-side with the UNEP, their political wish lists become official government policy.     How can this be, you ask? How can private organizations control policy and share equal power to elected officials? Here's how it works.     When the dust settled over the 1992 Rio Earth Summit, 5 major documents were forced into international policy that will change forever how national policy is made.   More importantly, the Rio Summit produced the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED).   UNCED outlined a new procedure for shaping policy.   The procedure has no name, nor is it [honestly and above-board] dictatorial.   It is perhaps best described as 'controlled consensus' or 'affirmative acquiescence'.     Put in simple street language, the procedure really amounts to a collection of NGOs, bureaucrats and government officials, all working together toward a predetermined outcome.   They have met together in meetings, written policy statements based on international agreements, which they helped to create and now they are about to impose laws and regulations that will have dire effects on people's lives and national economies.   Yet, with barely a twinge of conscience they move forward with the policy, saying nothing.   No one objects.   It's understood.   Everyone goes along.   For this is a barbaric procedure that insures their desired outcome without the ugliness of bloodshed, or even debate.   It is the procedure used to advance the radical, global environmental agenda.     The UNCED procedure utilizes 4 elements of power: international government (UN); national governments; non-governmental organizations, and philanthropic institutions.     The NGOs are the key to the process.   They create policy ideas from their own private agendas.   The policy idea is then adopted by one or more UN organizations for consideration at a regional conference.   Each conference is preceded by an NGO forum designed specifically to bring NGO activists into the debate.   There they are fully briefed on the policy and then trained to prepare papers and lobby and influence the official delegates of the conference.   In this way, the NGOs control the debate and assure the policy is adopted.   The ultimate goal of the conference is to produce a 'convention', which is a legally-drawn policy statement on specific issues.   Once the 'convention' is adopted by the delegates, it is sent to the national governments for official ratification.   Once that is done, the new policy becomes international law.     Then the real work begins.   Compliance must be assured.   Again, the NGOs come into the picture.   They are responsible for pressuring Congress to write national laws in order to comply with the treaty.   One trick used to assure compliance is to write into the laws the concept of third-party law-suits.     NGOs now regularly sue the government and private citizens to force policy.   They have their legal fees and even damage awards paid to them out of the government treasury.   Through a coordinated process, hundreds of NGOs are at work in congress, in every state government and in every local community, advancing some component of the global environmental agenda.     However, the United States Constitution's Tenth Amendment bars the federal government from writing laws that dictate local policy.   To by-pass this road-block, NGOs encourage congress to include special grants to help states and communities to fund the new policy, should they want to 'voluntarily' comply.     Should a community or state refuse to participate 'voluntarily', local chapters of the NGOs are trained to go into action.   They begin to pressure city councils or county commissioners to accept the grants and implement the policy.   Should they meet resistance, they begin to issue news releases telling the community their elected officials are losing millions of dollars for the community.   The pressure continues until the grant is finally taken and the policy becomes local law.   This practice has resulted in the NGOs gaining incredible power on the local level.   Today, a great number of communities are actually run by NGO members as city and county governments are staffed by NGO members.   They are routinely appointed to serve on local unelected boards and regional councils that the NGOs helped to create.   In that way, local representative government is slowly relinquishing its power to the NGOs.     Americans must begin to understand that the debate over environmental issues have very little to do with clean water and air or community planning, and much more to do with the establishment of power.   NGOs are gaining it as locally-elected representatives are losing their rightful position to influence and guide policy on behalf of the citizens of their community who elected them.   Through the creation of the non-elected boards, councils and regional governments, fueled by the federal grants, the structure of American government is being systematically changed to a top-down, non-elected dictatorship controlled by the UN-sanctioned NGOs."

the spirit of the times (Zeitgeist)
"There is a natural progression in all of life: It ends in death.   As it is with individuals, so it is with nations, for nations are simply collections of individuals living under the same institutions, laws and customs.   At a nation's birth this is by common assent among its inhabitants.   At a nation's death, anything shared in common is but a distant and faded memory.   There are loud, angry voices crying everywhere that want what they want -- and those around them be damned.   As you might have noticed, America no longer has shared institutions, laws and customs.   We are a mass of seething emotions, embroiled in conflict with one another over institutions, laws and customs of all kinds.   There is no consensus.   Rebels seek to abolish our past; new-comers demand that their new host accommodate their institutions, laws and customs.   The secular elitists view all this as 'a good thing', because America as it existed did not fulfill their view of its true place in the world, as one among a community of nations ruled by a benevolent and powerful dictatorship -- composed of themselves.   They have made an incalculable error, because they have never correctly understood what humanity is..."

Norm Matloff _Upon Closer Inspection Norm Says No_
calling all high GPA Ivy Leaguers, not perfect, but possibly a small step in the right direction for establishing minimal standards to get H-1B visas
"After being caught flat-footed on the H-1B issue in Thursday's debate, Donald Trump gave a firm, reasonable answer to a question on the matter at his rally in Reno:   If a foreign student graduates first in his class at Harvard or Princeton, then we should grant him a work visa or green card, but not the ordinary students at ordinary schools.   This certainly jibes with my views (though the question then is where to draw the line; see below).     The problem, of course, is that the tech industry wants to facilitate the immigration of notonly the strongest [brightest, most industrious] students at Harvard, but also mediocre students, at, say, Wright State University (site of the recent H-1B scandals).     The industry has [and the executives of the industry have] such a positive image [only a tiny fraction of is deserved] that one would think that they want to hire the brightest possible workers they can find, but in reality most of their jobs involve ordinary work -- which they deem best filled by ordinary people [but especially, the cheapest, youngest, most pliant people with only certain specific moral scruples, but not most others].   (An exception is Google, where you'll find many really sharp people working on really mundane tasks.)     I've mentioned before the American student with a bachelor's degree from Princeton then a master's from Cornell, who right after graduating from the latter was rejected 3 times from Texas Instruments.   When I told this story to a TI recruiter, she frankly told me that TI doesn't want to hire exceptionally bright people, presumably fearing they'll be prima donnas.   So, ordinary is good, and cheap ordinary is even better, hence the popularity of the H-1B program among employers.   &bsp; I've mentioned before my research, which also cites that of others, that shows on average the foreign students are of somewhat weaker talent than their American peers.   And even Vivek Wadhwa's 2006 survey found that employers [and managers] stated that, compared to the foreign engineers, the 'US engineers were more creative, excelled in problem solving, risk taking, networking and had strong analytical skills'.     Once again, our current policy is displacing, directly and indirectly, American workers with the higher talent and hiring instead foreign workers of lower talent.   This is a net loss to our economy, our ability to maintain world leadership in tech, and so on.   I can't understand why this doesn't alarm [more] people, even those who are critical of H-1B.     But as I've said so often, some foreign s tudents really are of outstanding talent.   Suppose congress and the tech industry really wanted a policy that targeted this group.   How could it be done?     Many years ago, maybe 1996, a staffer for senator Simpson actually tried to draft legislation based on the idea of grabbing the foreign students from [the USA]s] elite schools.   His plan was to look at the rankings of the school, and then draw the line somewhere near the top.   You can see why this wouldn't work, due to 'list creep', brought on in response to relentless pressure from the industry and academia; the line would be gradually lowered, first a little at a time, and finally opening the gates to just about anyone.   In 2011, a group of us researchers were gold by a high-level [Obummer official] that Zoe Lofgren's 'staple a green card to their diplomas' plan would apply only to the top dozen schools, but later it became over 100 and possibly over 200.     And speaking of Simpson, one of my favorite quotes of him says it all:   'I was working with the business community...to address their concerns [about H-1B, but] each time wer resolved one, they became more creative, ore novel.'   IOW, they were not working in good faith at all, and they would keep pushing a president Trump to lower the bar 'just a bit'.   Would he be able to resist?     The most practical proposal for taking only 'the best and the brightest' programmers and engineers has been to rank by offered salary.   All the aplications for visas would be thus ranked, and visas doled out until the cap is reached.   It's a very crisp, clean solution, originally proposed by a union yet something that the free market worshipers could relate to.   But as should be clear from above, this is not something of interest to employers, and the proposal never really got serious attention [in congress].   Representative Zoe Lofgren did put the provision into one of her bills to apply to H-1B, but the bill also included 'staple a green card', with NO such provision.   So the top talents would come in through the front door, but the back door would be open for everyone else.     Alas, a president Trump, or for that matter a president Sanders, would do well to consult with Alan Simpson -- a renegade, just like them -- on this issue."

  "All men have an equal right to the free development of their faculties; they have an equal right to the impartial protection of the state; but it is not true, it is against all the laws of reason and equity, it is against the eternal nature of things, that the indolent man and the laborious man, the spendthrift and the economizer, the imprudent and the wise, should obtain and enjoy an equal amount of goods." --- Victor Cousin

Except that computer people use 2 as a base raised to multiples of powers of 10, instead of 10 raised to multiples of powers of 3 because powers of 2 are handier for them, but they also want to stay somewhat close to the values of 10 most folks are used to.
