are freedom-loving productive people vanishing?
"...There is also a 'State Science Institute', somewhat similar in its ideological approach to the Goddard Institute for Space Studies at NASA.   Like the Goddard Institute, which the GOP would do well to defund entirely if it wins the coming election, the State Science Institute does not do science but hard-left propaganda.   Thompson and Mouch, working with acquiescent and more than somewhat crooked socialist billionaires such as James Taggart (think Gore, Gates, Steyer et hoc genus omne), set about dismantling capitalism and the free market and replacing it with a totalitarian command economy in which, one by one, the principal means of production, distribution and exchange are brought under the direct control of the useless Mouch...   The audit of socialist totalitarianism to date is as follows.   Deaths in consequence of National Socialism and the resulting Second World War and Holocaust: 75M.   Deaths resulting from Communist socialism: at least 100M and counting.   Deaths arising from environmentalist socialism: 40M (chiefly children) killed by malaria as a direct result of the ban on DDT, 40M from the socialists' refusal to permit effective public-health measures against HIV during its earliest stages in the mid-1980s, and uncounted tens of millions more arising from their refusal to allow the 1.2G people who have no access to electricity to get it from cheap, reliable, clean, base-load, coal-fired power-stations.   Socialism kills, and preaches while it does so, and sneers and snarls at any who dare gainsay it until nearly all have been cowed into a fearful, cringing silence...   The reign of the monsters will be terrible, but it will be short.   This time next week, I shall report from Paris, where the instrument of global dictatorship will be signed -- unless at this 11th hour we can stop them."

Obummer regime and RINOs have been stone-walling the biggest hacks in USA history
"When hackers breached U.S. government computer data-bases getting access to the names, addresses and [Socialist Insecurity numbers (SINs) and associated information] of 22M current and former federal employees and contractors, it represented a cyber attack of Pearl Harbor or 2001/09/11 proportions.   It was, by far, the largest infiltrations of supposedly secure data in the history of the United States of America, exposing to foreign enemies, terrorists and criminals a treasure trove of information that has compromised national security in ways that may not be completely understood for decades to come.   So congress finally got around to investigating the debacle last week, with closed-door hearings before the House Armed Services Committee.   And what happened? Officials from the Office of Personnel Management [OPM], the Office of Management and Budget [OMB] and Department of Homeland Security [DHS] all refused to testify.   Why? How? The officials canceled their previously scheduled appearance at the last minute because the committee would be doing what it routinely does with classified hearings -- transcribing the proceedings for review by members of congress...   [Security having been grossly breached by them, they're saying it would be a breach of security to say anything to the relevant committee-members.]..."

the idiocy of the visa waiver program -- no vetting, no background checks, nor background investigations
"...Citizens of Visa Waiver Program countries may enter the United States of America without a visa for up to 90 days [wink wink nudge nudge].   President Reagan signed the program into law in 1986.   For its first 14 years, congress kept a [loose] rein on the program by requiring its re-authorization every 2 years.   In 2000, congress moved to make the VWP permanent, under pressure from Bill Clinton's State Department and the travel industry...   Severely restricting or outright repeal of the Visa Waiver Program today is...necessary.   [No one should be able to set foot in the USA until and unless they've passed a thorough background investigation. Period.   But maybe we could build a visa applicant/refuge applicant/asylum applicant holding facility in the Marianas, or the Antarctic research station.]"

ISIL/ ISIS/ Daesh/ IS/ caliphate and a 1777 congressional Thanks-Giving prayer
"...Constitutionally speaking, as commander in chief of the armed forces, the president has the power to repel invasions.   But the Framers of the Constitution bestowed the power to declare war upon Congress, unless it comes to invasion -- like how the FBI has recently warned us that ISIL/ ISIS/ Daesh/ IS/ caliphate has presence in all 50 states of our union?...   In 1862, the supreme court opined that the president 'has no power to initiate or declare a war', but if there were an invasion, 'the president is not only authorized but bound to resist force by force...without waiting for any special legislative authority'.   Prize Cases (1863)...   before we give thanks and pray this Thanksgiving, I suggest that our Founders' following proclamation and prayer from the first national day of thanksgiving in America (set for 1777 Dec. 18), declared by the Continental Congress on 1777 Nov. 1, be read from congressional corridors to American dining tables across our country.   'FORASMUCH as it is the indispensable duty of all men to adore the superintending Providence of Almighty God;   to acknowledge with gratitude their obligation to him for benefits received, and to implore such farther blessings as they stand in need of;   and it having pleased him in his abundant mercy not only to continue to us the innumerable bounties of his common Providence, but also to smile upon us in the Prosecution of a just and necessary war, for the defense and establishment of our unalienable rights and liberties;   particularly in that he hath been pleased in so great a measure to prosper the means used for the support of our troops and to crown our arms with most signal success:   It is therefore recommended to the legislative or executive powers of these United States, to set apart THURSDAY, the eighteenth day of December next, for solemn thanks-giving and praise; that with one heart and one voice the good people may express the grateful Feelings of their Hearts, and consecrate themselves to the service of their Divine Benefactor;   and that together with their sincere acknowledgments and offerings, they may join the penitent confession of their manifold sins, whereby they had forfeited every favor, and their humble and earnest supplication that it may please GOD, through the merits of Jesus Christ, mercifully to forgive and blot them out of remembrance;   that it may please him graciously to afford his blessing on the governments of these States respectively, and prosper the public council of the whole;   to inspire our commanders both by land and sea, and all under them, with that wisdom and fortitude which may render them fit instruments, under the Providence of Almighty GOD, to secure for these United States the greatest of all human blessings, INDEPENDENCE and PEACE;   That it may please him to prosper the trade and manufactures of the people and the labor of the husbandman, that our land may yet yield its Increase;   to take schools and seminaries of education, so necessary for cultivating the principles of true liberty, virtue and piety, under his nurturing Hand, and to prosper the means of religion for the promotion and enlargement of that Kingdom which consisteth in Righteousness, Peace and Joy in the Holy Ghost.'"

Houston TX Chronicle writer Dylan Baddour says dozens of "Syrians" coming into Texas from Mexico is not news
"...Breitbart Texas broke a story revealing that Syrians currently have access to the porous U.S.A.-Mexico border, specifically in Texas.   The sources for the story used the word 'caught' as they brought attention to the matter that would have otherwise remained unknown to the public.   Due to the use of that one word in an accurate report revealing people from a nation partly controlled by ISIL/ ISIS/ Daesh/ IS/ caliphate currently have access to [and through] our porous border with Mexico, the folks from the Houston Chronicle and other left-leaning news outlets claim that our report was full of 'inaccuracies', though when questioned on that claim one Houston Chronicle writer admitted the only alleged 'inaccuracy' was the use of that one word...   [going on to claim that being detained at a port makes them 'legal immigrants'/'refugees'/'asylum seekers' rather than illegal alien barbarian invaders]...   Also, I should note, the Southwest border is about the only place that Syrians can claim asylum (which is different from refugee status -- that allows them to petition for asylum outside of the country), experts agree.   Syrians will not get visa approval to fly to the United States or Canada.   Sometimes not even Mexico -- those with good money fly to Central America..."

states ask supremes for more time to prepare arguments in response to Obummer's appeal of 5th circuit sustaining of district court injunction against unconstitutional and illegal amnesty of illegal aliens
"..If the justices agree to the state's request, the [Obummer regime's scheme] would miss the court's informal dead-line for a decision by the end of June.   The [scheme that Obummer] unveiled a year ago mainly affects people who are living in the country illegally, but who have children who are U.S. citizens or lawful permanent residents.   Unless the court was to take the rare step of scheduling an argument in May, the issue would not be heard by the justices until the fall or decided before 2017 Spring..."

leisure deficit, attacks on personal private vehicles, are killing off the suburbs
Note the illustration: "Tata... LifeStyle Residences. World-Class Spaces Coming Soon..."
"It's possible the biggest cause of gentrification in formerly depressed urban areas is that today's skilled workers can't spare the time to commute.   If true, this has implications for businesses ranging from real estate development to tech -- and raises the question of why companies still insist that white-collar employees come in to work.   Lena Edlund and Michaela Sviatchi of Columbia University and Cecilia Machado of the Getulio Vargas Foundation wondered why the relationship between housing prices and distance from the center of major U.S.A. cities has reversed since 1980.   That year, prices were higher in the suburbs, and urban centers were going to seed.   In the next 30 years, prices within three miles of the central business districts of the 27 biggest cities more than doubled.   Within a radius of 3 to 10 miles, they increased by 60%.   Further out, they grew by only 6% to 10%...   Indeed, since 1990, the number of skilled people working long hours -- 50 a week or more -- has been growing.   There are often two such people to a relatively affluent household, and they know a long commute is not an option: It doesn't just leave little time for fun and family life, it's downright bad for one's health.   A 2012 paper showed that increasing the daily commuting time from 62 minutes -- the average for Americans living in urban areas -- by another 60 minutes leads to a 6% decrease in health-related activities and so contributes to obesity.   Short commutes that can be made by foot or bicycle actually increase a worker's life satisfaction because they're healthy and provide a cushion between home and work life..."

Muslim terrorists in Mali would be welcome under Paul Ryan's new "refugee" bill (HR4038)
"Last week establishment Republican speaker of the House Paul Ryan shot down the idea of a religious test for 'refugees' coming to America at [tax-victim] expense.   Ryan said, 'We will not have a religious test, only a security test.', before touting his bill that allegedly gives extra scrutiny to those 'refugees' coming to the U.S.A. from Syria and Iraq.   The day after Ryan's bill was pushed through the House on a closed Rule, meaning no conservative amendments were allowed, Muslim terrorists – jihadis as they call themselves -- launched a terror attack on the American-owned Radisson Blu hotel in Bamako, Mali.   One American, former Peace Corps volunteer Anita Datar, was among 27 reported dead after the Muslim jihadis attacked the hotel shouting 'Allahu akbar' [Our God is great].   The bill the House passed, HR4038, 'The American Security Against Foreign Enemies Act', or rather was forced by Speaker Ryan to pass, limits the extra scrutiny and security certification to purported refugees only from Syria and Iraq...

Donald Trump and the "migrant"/ "refugee"/ "asylum seeker" data-base
"It's become a predictable pattern.   Donald Trump says something, the media recoils in horror and begins calculating his demise.   And then the polls don't move an inch -- or even go up slightly.   Such is the way it is in politically correct America, where merely mentioning certain ethnic groups will get you run through the wringer of [leftist] scourge.   Trump's latest linguistic apostasy concerns a comment he made late last week in response to a reporter's question about starting up a data-base for American Muslims, where The Donald unequivocally stated his administration would keep track of all of them.   The [leftist] media didn't like it...   The country class is extremely concerned about terrorism right now.   Radical Islamists are threatening to destroy us.   Trump is promising to do whatever it takes to protect the American public.   People see him as a strong leader because of it.   It's not rocket science, yet the media acts shocked when Trump or Ben Carson says something slightly off the trail of accepted discourse...   I'm with Cruz on this one.   Under our Constitution, government can't collect information on citizens without probable cause to suspect wrong'doing [plus a warrant from a judge].   For non-citizens, all bets are off, of course..."

just so you know: the government already has a list of Muslims in the USA
"...If you go to the FB ad-buying site -- which anyone can do; it's right here -- it only takes a few clicks to get the social network's estimate of the number of Americans on FB who are interested in the Muslim faith.   Cobbling together everyone who lives in the U.S.A. and who has liked pages or items dealing with Islam gives you 9.4M possible targets for your ads -- a number substantially higher than the the 2.75M Muslims Pew Research estimates in the U.S.A.   But still: FB has a sense of who's interested in the subject.   If that level of pin-pointing surprises you, wait for the punchline.   FB's information is very, very rough compared to that compiled by large consumer data companies.   According to one expert, it is also almost certainly the case that the government buys that data to get a clearer picture of the American population.   Here's how it works.   Go to the Google ads site and you can see what the search giant thinks it knows about you -- or, at least, what it's willing to share about what it knows.   Based on my search history and the web-sites I visit, Google figures that I am a male aged 35-44, which is correct...   By giving information to a central source, a data broker like Acxiom or Experian...   Data like credit card purchases, browser history, online shopping, who you donate to, magazine and newspaper subscriptions, purchases in grocery stores where you swipe your loyalty card...   can also easily build out a profile of a household.   Where you vacation.   Where you work.   They can analyze languages spoken and last names to develop a picture of a person's or family's ethnicity, or religion...   '...the government, writ large, is the largest source of funds for the data brokerage industry.', Sparapani said...   You know of the government's existing databases instinctively: [Socialist Insecurity], Census data, your college or home loans, your tax information, and so on.   For immigrants and refugees, there's more information, including interviews and background checks...   '...DHS and others have already purchased these materials...'..."

the week in "Islamic terrorism has nothing to do with Islam"
"...So not only is terrorism nothing to do with Islam, but Muslims have 'nothing whatsoever to do with terrorism'.   [Hitlery Rotten Clinton] said this a few hours before yet another US citizen was killed by terrorists shouting 'Allahu Akbar!' -- this time in a mass slaughter at the Radisson Hotel in Bamako, Mali.   Hostages were given a stark choice: if they could recite from the Koran, they would live; if they were incapable of reciting from the Koran, they would die.   So whoever these terrorists were -- 'you name it' -- they knew enough about Islam to be able to recognize quotations from the Koran.   Yet they can't be Muslims because Muslims have 'nothing whatsoever to do with terrorism'.   So who does have something to do with terrorism? Republicans mainly.   Republicans are the greatest recruiting tool for terrorism that has ever been devised -- far more effective than jihadist snuff videos on 'social media'.   Just ask [president Barack Hussein Obummer]..."

predicting terrorism through the power of markets adversaries
"...Prediction markets work by allowing investors to trade securities that are priced to reflect other investors' beliefs about the likelihood that a particular event will occur.   If you are holding the security and the event occurs then you 'win'.   They are generally regarded as useful tools for aggregating information that is decentralized.   Electoral prediction markets, according to their supporters, are more accurate than political polling.   If the markets are as good as claimed, one theory on why they work so well is that people incorporate less their own preferences than their knowledge of how friends and neighbors plan to vote.   And with money at stake, they 'bet' with their heads rather than their hearts..."

after ISIL/ ISIS/ Daesh/ IS/ caliphate falls
"...To guide this strategic planning, it's useful to look at five dates that marked the end of other convulsive conflicts: 1648, 1815, 1919, 1945 and 1989.   Four of them created durable new frameworks that addressed the causes of instability.   One, however, set in motion the disaster of the modern Middle East.   Let's quickly review these 5 peace agreements.   In each, there's a lesson for today:   The Peace of Westphalia in 1648 is probably better known than the obscure conflicts it resolved, which are collectively described as the Thirty Years' War..."

Brussels became a Muslim terrorist hot-spot because of socialist mayor's immigration ideology
"...about half a mile north-west of Brussels city centre lies the shabby suburb of Molenbeek.   It is one of Brussels' 19 districts.   This run down area of the Belgian capital has become the epicentre of a media storm during the past week as a number of the terrorists behind the appalling Paris attacks came from Molenbeek...   Breitbart London's Raheem Kassam... So we planned to take a lengthy walk around the area the following day with the leader of the Swedish Democrats Jimmie Akesson...   the root of the problem is a hard-line socialist of the Jeremy Corbyn school of Left wing lunacy.   In 1992 Phillipe Moureaux -- a prominent Brussels socialist -- became the mayor of Molenbeek.   He remained in that post until 2012.   During his twenty years in office, any questioning of the demographic change in Molenbeek was shut down as 'racist', and Moureaux pursued his policies of multiculturalism and 'diversity' with gusto.   During Moureaux's reign of madness the population of Molenbeek exploded.   In the first five years of the century the population rose by 12% and in the first fifteen years by a massive 30%.   Molenbeek's population grew to around 100K with around 30% of foreign nationality and another 40% of foreign origins (people who now have Belgian passports).   This huge wave of immigration made it impossible for people to integrate properly, but any criticism was silenced.   Of course, as a result, the new immigrants voted en masse for the Belgian Socialist Party, so Moureaux stayed in power.   It's not too dissimilar to the game played by the Labour Party in many cities and towns in the North of England.   However, Moureaux failed on every count: Molenbeek does not have many different cultures and it is certainly no longer diverse.   There is one culture: an Islamic culture and no real diversity as almost everyone is either Arab or at least of Arab origin..."

terrorism explodes... insane Obummer goes to war against USA
"Since the horrific Paris terror attacks, [president Obummer] and the Dems/leftists/Reds want you to think that defending ourselves from Islamic terrorism will only make things worse.   Bombing the ISIL/ ISIS/ Daesh/ IS/ caliphate, you see, will make it easier for them to recruit.   [Barack Hussein Obummer] also says closing the Guantanamo Bay military prison will make us safer because, according to him, ISIL/ ISIS/ Daesh/ IS/ caliphate, uses its existence as a recruitment tool.   The president also insists that any effort to pause the importation of Syrian refugees while we strengthen the vetting process will also cause more Muslims to join the ranks of those insane mass murderers...   One of my co-bloggers noted the 'curious paradox' of this position at my web-site: 'Strikes me as a curious paradox that Muslims are not Muslims when they are active terrorists, but they are all potential terrorists if we do anything to offend Muslims [or effectively defend against terrorism].   I have in mind the dire warnings of a recruitment bonanza if we don't accept Syrian refugees.'...   In what could have been a Churchill-like moment for him, [Obummer] instead chose to be Mr. Magoo..."

contrary to media reports, "migrants"/ "refugees"/ "asylum seekers"/ invaders/ terrorists/ cross-border criminals are a burden in Maine: interview with Mary Mayhew (partial transcript and audio)
"Today on The Laura Ingraham Show, Mary Mayhew, Health and Human Services Commissioner, discussed the massive welfare reforms Maine has implemented over the past four years.   Despite immense backlash from the media, governor LePage's administration has reduced enrollment in the state's food stamp program by over 58K.   Further, 357K individuals were receiving Medicaid in Maine when LePage was elected, a number that has fallen to 287K.   Mayhew attributes the decline to eliminating the waiver of the work requirement previously attached to food stamps; under the new legislation, recipients need to work 20 hours a week, volunteer an hour a day, or attend a class to receive food stamps past 3 months.   The program seeks to de-incentivize government and encourage Maine residents to become active in the workforce and economy.   Unfortunately, the influx of Somalian refugees over the past several years has, according to Mayhew, taken away from opportunities previously available to residents in Maine.   These refugees have had a wide on the welfare program, the education system, and many other aspects of society.   Despite recent articles claiming Somalis can save Maine's economy, Mayhew says, 'overall, we have seen an increased burden to the infrastructure and the welfare programs' as a result of the refugees..."

"One of the more obscure features of the recently-announced Durbin-Grassley bill on H-1B/L-1 visa 'reform' (S2266) is to mandate better data collection on the visa holders, particularly on [sex].   We really neeeed the [sex] data, supporters say.   Really? I'm concerned about [sex] discrimination in the tech industry, but I'd argue that there is far more pressing data that ought to be collected -- say counts of Americans who apply for jobs that ultimately are filled by H-1Bs.   Collect data on [sex] of H-1Bs -- how politically correct!   Unfortunately, there is no concern for age discrimination, arguably a much more troubling problem..."

how Obummer cooks the terrorism numbers
Washington DC Times
"...Pew Research, which is no right-wing echo chamber, polls extensively on what Muslims believe about current events, and found that only 57% of Muslims in nine predominantly Islamic countries hold an unfavorable opinion of al-Qaeda.   Mathmeticians, even math majors, generally regard 57% as less than 99.9%.   One in 4 Muslims has a favorable opinion of Hezbollah, from whom ISIL/ ISIS/ Daesh/ IS/ caliphate learned certain torture techniques used on American captives, such as William Buckley, the CIA station chief in Beirut whom the CIA concluded was reduced to 'close to a gibbering wretch'.   Once months of torture finally killed him, his body was dumped on the side of a dirt road.   Pew finds that a third, or 33% of Muslims support Hamas, whose soldiers once went into a hotel in the Israeli city of Netanya and burst into a room where a group of elderly Jews, including several Holocaust survivors and some in wheel-chairs, were having a Passover supper.   One of the Hamas heroes detonated his suicide vest, killing 30 and wounding 140 others.   The Palestinian Authority later named a soccer tournament to honor the suicide bomber.   The math major could tell [Obummer] that a third, or 33%, is less than 99.9%...   If Muslims shunned the terrorists by the percentages that Christians shun the Ku Klux Klan, observes Josh Gelernter in the National Review, 'the president would have a point'.   But they don't, and he doesn't."

Phyllis Schlafly says a lot more incumbents need to be defeated in primaries
"...on December 2, 2015 she is convening the first #WhiteFlagCongress town-hall at 19:00 in the Eagle Forum headquarters, 7800 Bonhomme Ave., St. Louis, MO.   At the new whiteflagcongress.com web-site the Eagle Forum founder announced the purpose of the #WiteFlagCongress campaign: 'At this pivotal moment in U.S. history, when our leaders ought to be standing stronger and fighting harder than ever for us -- they've chosen to wave a white flag in the face of government over-reach and overspending.   The only thing that gets their attention is a primary!   Every one of them is guilty until proven innocent!   Primary Them!' &nnbsp; In an incisive column for Investor's Business Daily Mrs. Schlafly made the case that such a movement and town-hall meetings are necessary because nothing has really changed since the feckless John Boehner was ousted as speaker of the House and replaced with [RINO] Paul Ryan.   Said Schlafly: Shortly after he was sworn in as speaker of the House, Paul Ryan admitted to his colleagues: 'The House is broken.   We are not solving problems; we are adding to them...   Neither the members nor the people are satisfied with how things are going.'   Ryan continued, however, 'I am not interested in laying blame' or, for that matter, in accepting his share of it.   If the House seems broken, it's because of congress' consistent failure to exercise its legitimate powers.   Mrs. Schlafly further noted that in his first act as incoming speaker, Ryan signed off on a deal that out-going speaker John Boehner had secretly negotiated.   A key provision surrendered congress' authority to 'borrow money on the credit of the United States' for the remainder of [president Obummer's] term in office.   Last week's release of the secret text of the Trans-Pacific Partnership [TPP] reminds us, said Schlafly, that congress had already [tried to surrender] its sole [constitutional] power [and duty] to 'regulate commerce with foreign nations'..."

German professor Friedrich Karl Ewert: NASA fiddling with climate data on an unbelievable scale; planet has been cooling since 1940
"...But the activist scientists at NASA GISS -- initially led by James Hansen (pictured above), later by Gavin Schmidt -- wanted the records they are in charge of maintaining to show warming not cooling, so they began systematically adjusting the data for various spurious reasons using ten different methods.   The most commonly used ones were: Reducing the annual mean in the early phase.   Reducing the high values in the first warming phase.   Increasing individual values during the second warming phase.   Suppression of the second cooling phase starting in 1995.   Shortening the early decades of the data-sets.   With the long-term data-sets, even the first century was shortened.   Ewert's findings echo that of US meteorologists Joseph d'Aleo and Anthony Watts who examined 6K NASA weather stations and found a host of irregularities both with the way they were sited and how the raw data had been adjusted to reflect such influences as the Urban Heat Island effect.   Britain's Paul Homewood is also on NASA GISS's case.   Here he shows the shocking extent of the adjustments they have made to a temperature record in Brazil..."

"The data, released by senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL), adds that these, 'refugees have instant access to federal welfare and entitlements, along with local benefits and education services; these costs are not offset'.   The release from Sessions notes that, 'Assuming no change in visa policy, the U.S.A. can expect to give green cards to another 680K more migrants from these countries over the next 5 years...   A green card entitles recipients to access federal benefits, lifetime residency, work authorization, and a direct route to becoming a U.S. citizen.'   The number, 680K isn't 'an estimate of total immigration, as it does not include temporary immigrants who return home, nor is it an estimate of population change, as it does not include births or deaths, among other considerations'.   [President Barack Hussein Obummer] has also directed his administration to accept 10K 'Syrian' 'refugees' by 2016..."

states should use "compact" clause to guard against illegal immigration
"Article 1, Section 10, Clause 3 of the United States Constitution: 'No State shall, without the Consent of Congress, lay any Duty of Tonnage, keep Troops, or Ships of War in time of Peace, enter into any Agreement or Compact with another State, or with a foreign Power, or engage in War, unless actually invaded, or in such imminent Danger as will not admit of delay.'   As the world watches in horror as ISIL/ ISIS/ Daesh/ IS/ caliphate kills, maims, and terrorizes the people of France, Belgium, and Russia, as the U.S. State Department issues a worldwide travel alert until 2016 February, as the FBI and DHS issue warnings to the American people that the United States is under high alert for a terror attack on the homeland, nothing is being done about our open porous borders.   It is absolutely beyond comprehension.   We face a crisis in our country today.   Wide swaths of open land on our borders are literally open doors for terrorists; we are inviting them in to threaten our communities and kill our citizens.   Due to this emergence it serves Americans well to be aware of what options the United States Constitution offers them via the States.   Article 1 Section 10 Clause 3 may provide the answer.   Your representative may not even be aware of this lawful loop-hole..."
OTOH, the constitution also allows states to "inspect" incoming goods and people, and to charge what it costs.

Yonason Goldson _Jewish World Review_
a short history of MidEast violence over the last century
"First it was repeated attacks by the combined armies of Israel's neighbors.   Then it was a coordinated uprising of suicide bombings and shootings.   Then it was missile attacks from Iraq.   Then another uprising.   Then missiles from [Gaza=Palestine].   Now it's random attacks with knives and weaponized cars and trucks.   And all along, according to much of the world, it's been Israel's fault for deny the rights of the Palestinian people to live peacefully in the land that has been theirs since time immemorial...   Before 1920, even the concept of a Palestinian people did not exist.   Arabs living in the region considered themselves part of greater Syria, until the French and British divided the region and ended hope of a single commonwealth.   Only then, in a desperate attempt to create a national identity out of whole cloth, local Arabs proclaimed themselves Palestinians and begin lobbying for a country of their own.   And they got what they wanted. The next year, colonial-secretary Winston Churchill divided the region into what are now Jordan and Israel.   The Arabs received 76% of the land.   The rest was reserved as a Jewish homeland.   But even that was not enough.   In 1947, the United Nations divided the remaining territory roughly in half, leaving Israel with 13% of the original 'Mandate'.   The Jews accepted the compromise.   The Arabs launched a war against the Jews..."

political translations
"It is amazing how many different ways the same thing can be said, creating totally different impressions.   For example, when [president Barack Hussein Obummer] says that defeating ISIL/ ISIS/ Daesh/ IS/ caliphate is going to take a long time, how is that different from saying that he is going to do very little, very slowly? It is saying the same thing in different words.   Defenders of the administration's policies may cite how many aerial sorties have been flown by American planes against ISIL/ ISIS/ Daesh/ IS/ caliphate.   There have been thousands of these sorties, which sounds very impressive.   But what is less impressive -- and more indicative -- is that, in most of those sorties, the planes have not fired a single shot or dropped a single bomb.   Why? Because the rules of engagement are so restrictive that in most circumstances there is little that the pilot is allowed to do, unless circumstances are just right, which they seldom are in any war.   Moreover, the thousands of sorties being flown are still a small fraction of the number of sorties flown in the same amount of time during the Iraq war, when American leaders were serious about getting the war won.   Politics produces lots of words that can mean very different things, if you stop and think about them.   But politicians depend on the fact that many people don't bother to stop and think about them.   We often hear that various problems within the black community are 'a legacy of slavery'.   That phrase is in widespread use among people who believe in the kinds of welfare state programs that began to dominate government policies in the 1960s.   Blaming social problems today on 'a legacy of slavery' is another way of saying, 'Don't blame our welfare state policies for things that got worse after those policies took over.   Blame what happened in earlier centuries.'   Nobody would accept that kind of cop-out, if it were expressed that way.   But that is why it is expressed differently, as a 'legacy of slavery'..."

Curt Clawson (R-FL-19) understands that "Syrian" "migrants"/ "refugees"/ "asylum seekers"/ invaders/ terrorists/ cross-border criminals are a threat to the USA
"...After the Paris attack of Friday, November 13, when the issue of what to do about the threat posed by Muslim terrorists -- jihadis as they call themselves -- entering the United States through [Obummer's] Syrian 'refugee' 're-settlement' program came to the fore, Clawson proposed a well-thought-out alternative: he introduced a bill that would bar the use of federal money to assist with relocation of the refugees that offered the greatest threat.   Clawson's bill would immediately bar the use of federal funds to process immigrants from Syria, Iraq, Libya, Afghanistan, or Yemen, until 'a vetting system we can trust' is in place.   'It is not safe or right to put this burden on Florida, especially in the wake of the reported findings in the Paris attacks revealing that some of the terrorists [very recently] arrived in Europe posing as Syrian refugees.', Clawson told Ledyard King of the Ft. Myers News-Press Washington bureau... And senators Jeff Sessions and Ted Cruz have documented some 72 other domestic terror incidents attributable to Muslim 'refugees' or 'refugee-related individuals' -- in just the past year alone..."

the return of a 47-year-old headline
"I was thumbing through an old magazine over the week-end.   It was 47 years old to be exact, and I came across a surprisingly prescient piece entitled wittily, 'The Arab, the Jew, and the Pickle'.   What particularly caught my eye was that the piece was written by me in what is now called The American Spectator.   Imagine that.   In it, I argued that Israel had no other choice but to resist its enemies.   They were all around little Israel and they were hostile to the utmost.   Any sign of weakness would put the state of Israel in mortal danger.   That piece got me to thinking.   Have I not made this point for years? I did a search and found that I made almost exactly the same point November of 1976 in the pages of Harper's.   The piece was entitled -- rather unimaginatively -- 'Chimera in the Middle East'.   Then, as I Googled, I found what I already knew.   I have been making it in other places for years, for instance, in The American Spectator, the Good Times (also known as the Washington Times) and other places along the way.   Israel has no alternative but to resist its enemies, and, incidentally, its enemies now seem fewer, at least fewer in the Middle East.   Perhaps what enemies the Israelis still have in the Middle East are dreadfully dangerous but they are not so numerous as they were in the past.   Such countries as Egypt, Jordan, Saudi Arabia and the Gulf states now feel they have other fish to fry than Israel.   They have actually been supportive of Israel recently, for instance, on the nuclear agreement between the United States and Iran.   Yet Europe has for the most part been held aloof from Israel -- until Nov. 13.   With the massacres in Paris, the French government also sees itself as up against implacable foes in the cowardly and quite mad terrorists who come from the fever swamps of Islamist fundamentalism.   Soon I should hope other European countries will join in the fight.   ISIL/ ISIS/ Daesh/ IS/ caliphate and all the other terrorist groups have got to be extinguished.   These terrorists do not employ diplomats.   They only employ suicide bombers and fighters who hide behind women and children.   They offer no negotiating principles.   They only want to kill and to be killed.   Extinguishing their madness is going to take a long time.   Whatever possessed Europeans to think they could live peacefully with such savages prowling the globe?..."

survival tips for today's colleges & universities
"...Here's what's really happening.   Faculty leftists now rule the humanities departments in America's colleges and universities.   They teach victimhood.   Students learn that they've been victims of America's racism, sexism, homophobia, etc.   So why the surprise when they begin to act like victims? And due to self-imposed or external pressure to 'diversify' campuses by race and ethnicity, colleges relax customary academic standards of admission for so called 'under-represented students', specifically blacks and Hispanics.   Such students would have done fine at a less competitive school, one commensurate with their grades and test scores.   But when standards are watered down, students can struggle to compete, thus becoming 'academically marginalized'.   Thus the very same students who 'benefited' from the push for diversity then complain about the perceived 'micro-aggressions' that supposedly hinder their success..."

USA is a nation of pioneers, not immigrants
"The establishment media, encouraged none too subtly by [president Barack Hussein Obummer's] ThanksGiving address, and his policies of bringing thousands of potential Islamist terrorists to this country and unconstitutionally granting amnesty and work permits to millions of illegal aliens, has now decreed that 'Thanksgiving is about immigration' and that the Pilgrims were 'illegal immigrants'.   Normally this could be dismissed as a bunch of soft-headed [leftist] non-sense, but in the light of [Obummer's] announcement that he wants to bring additional Muslim 'refugees' to America, and grass-roots concerns about [Communist Corpse] and the rewriting of American history in many of our school text-books, it bears closer examination and rebuttal.   First of all, Thanksgiving is in no way about 'immigration'.   It may be about faith in God*, perseverance, brotherhood in the face of hardship or even the value of goodwill among diverse people, but it is not about immigration for the simple reason that the Pilgrims did not consider themselves to be 'immigrants'.   They were pioneers -- colonizers who undertook a voyage for 'the glory of God, and advancement of the Christian faith, and honor of our king and country'.   If today's immigrants come to America with similar goals to advance Islam -- and there's plenty of reason to believe that many legal and illegal immigrants from Muslim countries do -- then we should certainly not see their arrival as a reason to celebrate, because they represent an existential threat to our way of life.   It is also worth noting that the relationship between the Pilgrims and the Native Americans -- Indians -- was not the relationship of welfare recipient Pilgrim to welfare giving Indian that [leftists] would like us to think..."

new poll: 84% of Americans say "NO!" to massive immigration from the Middle East
"A nationwide survey of 2016 likely general election voters conducted by McLaughlin & Associates for our friends at SecureAmericaNow.org finds that more than 4 out of 5 voters, 84%, categorize immigration from the Middle East to the United States as 'Dangerous'.   Responding to the question: 'In light of the most recent Islamic Terror attacks in Paris, how dangerous do you see immigration from the Middle East to the United States as...?'   The plurality, 49%, answered 'very dangerous', with another 35% saying 'somewhat dangerous'.   Only 12%, said it was 'not dangerous at all', with the remaining 4%, saying they didn't know.   These numbers are strong across the board noted the pollsters as even Democrats (75%) and [Leftists] (69%) view immigration from the Middle East as dangerous.   What's more, those surveyed firmly rejected the idea that Americans have a moral obligation to resettle tens of thousands of Syrian 'refugees'.   Responding to the questions, 'Syria is engulfed by a deadly civil war.   There are estimates that hundreds of thousands of people have died because of this fighting.   Do you feel it is our moral duty to re-settle tens of thousands of Syrian refugees?'   Only 1 in 4 Americans said they believe it is our moral duty to re-settle tens of thousands of Syrian 'refugees'.   The majority of Americans, 56%, say no, it is not our moral duty, with another 19% saying they didn't know.   Only a plurality of self-described liberals, 48%, said that it was our moral duty to re-settle tens of thousands of 'refugees'.   The majority of moderates (57%) and conservatives (73%) said it was not.   But Americans are not insensible to the plight of Syria's 'refugees' and other people displaced by the on-going [wars] in the Middle East.   When presented with this alternative to re-settling Syria's Islamic 'refugees' here, 'Transporting and processing tens of thousands of Syrian refugees safely to the United States is a logistical and security nightmare but providing humanitarian aid is a moral imperative that the United States should address.   Rather than allowing millions of Syrians to be displaced by the Civil War to Europe and the U.S.A., it would better to create safe havens with no fly zones and humanitarian aid for Syrians to receive in their own country?'   Americans embraced it wholeheartedly.   The poll revealed that three-quarters, 74%, of Americans approve of creating safe havens with no fly zones and humanitarian aid for Syrians to receive in their own country rather than processing them as 'refugees'.   Only 14% disapprove, with another 12% saying they don't know.   There exists strong bi-partisan approval for this measure as Republicans (77%), Democrats (70%) and Independents (74%) approve..."
The trouble is that we don't know which ones are from Syria and which ones are from Sudan or Somalia or Morocco or or Libya or Liberia or Iran/Persia or Afghanistan or Pakistan or Bangladesh; nor do we know which ones are "economic immigrants", which are "refugees", which are "asylum seekers", which are foreign spies, which are foreign operatives, which are terrorists, and which are already bright, industrious, creative Americans in every way but government recognition, and neither the Obummer regime nor the rest of the USA government want to try very hard to investigate and sort them out. Meanwhile, Europe and Israel have been hammered by terrorist attacks and sectarian violent crimes for decades from the Muslim "migrants"/ "refugees"/ "asylum seekers"/ terrorists/ cross-border criminals since the 1940s.

weak, confused, and unable to grasp what's going on and why: Obummer
Washington DC Times
"Many bad things happen when a leader is weak, confused and forever in search of a credible reason to do nothing.   For all his softness on Islam, [Barack Hussein Obummer] has little insight into the men who send out mobs to cry 'death to America'.   He can't imagine that men can listen to the call to evening Muslim prayer, which so captivated him as a boy growing up in Indonesia -- 'the prettiest sound on Earth' -- and be inspired to dream of bringing down death on America.   The international order so carefully put together, and guarded so faithfully, by American presidents, Democrats and Republicans, after the Cold War was won, has unraveled under this president to the consternation of America's most faithful allies and to the unexpected delight of the nation's considerable enemies.   The anarchy that will follow this unraveling will be the legacy he leaves behind him.   'When [Obummer] came to office in 2009,' [wrote] Alexander Woolfson in Standpoint magazine, a London political journal, 'it would have been unimaginable that a caliphate could be allowed to thrive in the midst of the Middle East, or that a U.S. president would be foolish enough to exploit ancient Persian and Arab enmity for the purposes of American retrenchment.   [Obummer's] now familiar refrain is to counsel 'strategic patience' while suggesting that America cannot solve every world problem, it can't be policeman to the world.   He remains oblivious to the fact that his worldview is the problem.   ISIS has created a vision of the future, which [Obummer] appears unable to grasp.   Its caliphate is being sustained through the mass murder and repression of those who do not belong.'..."

can we agree on ISIL/ ISIS/ Daesh/ IS/ caliphate?
"...the defining feature of the current American scene is the sheer speed and ferocity with which every issue, even a seemingly indisputable one like the need to respond to the Paris attacks, becomes a source of partisan conflict -- and, increasingly, intra-partisan conflict...   [The Republican party] holds a majority in congress and, therefore, could [if it were not split among left-leaning RINOs and non-leftists] pass a declaration of war against ISIL/ ISIS/ Daesh/ IS/ caliphate tomorrow, if [a majority of each house] wanted..."

the blind West
"'Act of war, Hollande says', blared the front-page headline -- even before the attacks on Paris had ceased.   It was all a revelation to France's president, as if the West had not been at war for some time against this latest wave of jihadists to sweep out the Middle East -- just as Islam itself had swept out of Arabia's sands and conquered much of the known world centuries ago.   Now the great conquest continues, this time via the Islamic State/ISIS/ISIL/the Caliphate or whatever Islamic fundamentalism calls its latest historic manifestation of so many.   Yet it's all breaking news, not history, to the West.   Such is [the ignorance of many so-called 'leaders'], for we have long ignored the first rule of war and survival in this world: Know Thy Enemy -- and [many of us] don't.   On the contrary, [many of us] scarcely suspect its existence.   Till one day it appears in the very heart of the West to over-run our defenses and turn the City of Light into a city of horrors..."

grateful for what they hate
"The Paris attacks have occasioned a wide-ranging debate about what they mean and how to respond, involving Islam and its role, military strategy and, oddly enough, how Muslims in New Jersey reacted to Sept. 11 (thanks, Donald Trump).   It's all very interesting and, for the most part, quite important.   At bottom, though, the import of the Paris attacks is not complicated: ISIL/ ISIS/ Daesh/ IS/ caliphate terrorists are enemies of our civilization.   In Paris, they chose their target well.   They assaulted a city that dates back thousands of years and has been a leading Western capital going back to the Capetians, a site of soaring endeavor (Notre Dame) and extraordinary learning (University of Paris) since the 12th century, a place representing geological layers of Western civilization, and its glories and conflicts and follies.   Paris has seen its share of sectarian hatred (the St. Bartholomew's Day massacre), violent upheavals (too many to count), and authoritarians (Napoleon Bonaparte, most notably) but it is synonymous with an appreciation for the finest things wrought by human talent and discernment.   You don't have to be fond of France's centralizing political culture or its statist economics (I'm not) to recognize its achievements or honored place in the West.   To simplify crudely, the Western story began in the 5th century Before the Common Era on an Athenian hillside where people sat and voted on public questions and, over the course of millennia -- and with multiple, often clashing sources, from the Romans to the Catholic Church to the Enlightenment -- produced our current liberal dispensation.   The West respects the rule of law, which protects the individual from the caprice and degradations of the powerful.   It divides church and state.   It governs by the consent of the governed.   It honors the dignity -- and the conscience and the rights -- of the individual.   It celebrates reason, discovery and creativity, and gives a wide berth to commerce and entrepreneurial energy.   Obviously, this hasn't always been true, and the road to the adoption of these norms has been winding and bloody..."

finding more than faults on the All-American holiday
Washington DC Times
"Has anybody seen Norman Rockwell? We gather together for the Thanksgiving holiday and a few days of family togetherness.   The tables are groaning under time-honored dishes of our pilgrim forefathers, or so we like to think.   We tell innocent stories about them and their Native American guests (or 'Indians', as the first settlers called them [or 'earlier immigrants' as we think of them today]).   We draw inspiration from rough times, when families came to find freedom to worship in a new land, forging the first chapter of our history.   On Thanksgiving we share our generational perspectives about what happened after that, in stories both uplifting and challenging.   The challenging part accelerates these days through harsh words of the politically correct who see only the faults and flaws of those who brought civilization to these shores.   Harmless myths have smoothed over a multitude of differences to call us to unifying pride of country, but many of the privileged young men and women now in college focus only on what they can raise their voices about.   Every school-boy knows that the term 'Indian' was based on a navigational mistake by Christopher Columbus, who thought he had landed in India..."

the war against personal, private cars (part 1)
"We've had the war on poverty, the war on drugs, and the war on women.   Politicians and their marketing consultants for purely selfish political interests have invented every single one of these 'wars'.   None of these so-called 'wars' can ever be won because they are bogus.   The poverty and drug 'wars' have had billions in federal funds poured into slogans, ad campaigns, and bureaucratic committees and programs for decades.   The 'war on women' is totally made up, invented by the Democrats as a way of rallying their base by vilifying Republicans as the party who hate women and want to keep them down.   But we have a new political 'war' quietly going on across our country and this one is for real.   I call it the 'war on cars'.   This war is being waged by a coalition of liberal opportunistic politicians and radical environmentalists.   To borrow the [Obummer] phrase, they want to 'fundamentally transform the United States' from a car-centric nation to a country dependent on public transportation, bicycles, and walking.   The difference between those other bogus political wars and this one is, this is one they are winning.   After having returned from a 3-week road trip all over California I can honestly say that our highways and streets are being taken over by bicyclists (not sweet little families happily jingling their bicycle bells as they peddle their Schwinn's around the Leave to Beaver neighborhood, I'm talking nasty, radical bike Nazis).   These bicyclists with major attitudes and an elite sense of entitlement purposely ride 2 and 3 abreast and do anything they can to frustrate motorists, like riding in the middle of a lane on a mountain road where there's no place to go around them..."

warning to the convinced: sure, college can pay off, but to varying degrees
"In a new working paper, Sang Yoon Lee, Yongseok Shin and Donghoon Lee write: 'In the early 1980s, American men with at least 4 years of college education earned about 40% more on average than those whose education ended with high school.   By 2005, this college wage premium rose to above 90%.   During the same time period, the fraction of men with a 4-year college degree in the working-age population all but remained constant.'   This is a bit of a mystery.   College tuition has gone up, to be sure, but financing that tuition is easier than it used to be, what with the panoply of repayment options for government-sponsored student loans.   Moreover, more people start college than did in 1985; it's just that they don't finish...   There are good jobs out there that are available only to folks with a college diploma.   But not everyone with a college diploma gets one.   You can also end up under-employed.   As the college wage premium has risen, the variance in graduate earnings has also risen, meaning that there is a much bigger difference between the top and the bottom than there was 25 years ago.   College folks doing jobs that don't require a college degree have earnings that look more like people with a few years of college and less like the average earnings of a college graduate.   Of course, it's not exactly like a lottery ticket, because the distribution of the rewards isn't random.   Not every college graduate is entered in the 'investment banker' [in NYC where housing, over-crowding, over-population, over-regulation, over-taxation and housing costs create a humongous burden] or 'Silicon Valley software engineer' draws [with similar over-population, over-crowding, over-taxation, over-regulation and extremely high housing costs]..."

sorry, you just lost the right to have your day in court
"Big-dollar civil damage lawsuits are a terrible way to discipline corporate misbehavior.   They put complex decisions in the hands of ill-informed juries, reward litigious ninnies who spill hot coffee on themselves, deliver most of the rewards even in worthy cases to plaintiffs' attorneys, and are so lottery-like and thus unpredictable that they don't seem to do much to deter misbehavior.   But if you get rid of them, what's left? The New York Times has been exploring this question with its 'Beware the Fine Print' series, which describes how arbitration has replaced the class-action law-suit as the only real recourse consumers and employees have for many grievances against corporations.   To buy a mobile phone or get a credit card or take a new job, Americans now increasingly find themselves having to agree to an arbitration clause that prevents them from taking the seller or employer to court..."

up with germs
"...a fascinating new exhibit at the American Museum of Natural History in New York is doing.   'The Secret World Inside You' is a paean to the trillions of microbes that live on and in each of us.   Until just recently, says genomic scientist Robert DeSalle, co-curator of the exhibit, most people thought of microbes only in terms of illness.   Today researchers are realizing we let a few bad apples influence our outlook.   'There are so few bad bacteria in our bodies relative to the good ones that it gives all microbes a bad rap.', says DeSalle.   Consider this: Mice bred to have guts completely bereft of bacteria -- sterile -- 'are much happier when you put some microbes into them', DeSalle says.   It is normal for us all to be crawling with microscopic critters.   Many of those critters are on display at the museum, magnified a zillion times, and just be glad they're normally microscopic.   Attractive, they aren't.   But scientists are actually starting to think of them sort of like genes.   We each have our own 'microbiome' -- a set of microbes that lives on and in us.   No 2 people's microbiomes are the same, and our microbiomes change depending on what we eat, where we live and even our age..."

USA citizenry knows there is no second chance
"Before we start, let's clarify something.   Those who live and work in Washington, DC, aren't in [the USA].   DC is not a state...   The rest of us are required to pay taxes to meet your needs, which [many decades ago became], shall we say, excessive.   You don't live in [the USA].   You live somewhere else.   There are 2 political parties only in the minds of those who live inside the DC bubble.   Every national election time, there is a series of ghastly contests stretching out two years where the 2 District of Columbia parties conduct hand-to-hand combat for the remaining colosseum spectators.   The winner vanquishes the loser (until the next election), wins the contest and then spends the money for the next 2 or 4 years.   During that time, the winner hands out the money collected across the nation to grease the hands of his friends and relatives, and to repay political debts.   Two political parties do exist in America, but they're not the donkeys and the elephants.   The Establishment Party is comprised of old family monied interests and brash young tech founder wannabes.   The old money goal is to hang onto what they have and elect one of their own.   The wannabes 'wanna' disrupt the old money and usher in the new world they are creating.   Either will put forward the best figurehead that money can buy during the primaries.   Neither will come out themselves and say they want the job.   A figurehead must orate well but say nothing meaningful.   Thus was born the professional political class..."
