  "Time and again the passion for understanding has led to the illusion that man is able to comprehend the objective world rationally by pure thought without any empirical foundations -- in short, by metaphysics [i.e. imagination]." --- Albert Einstein (quoted in James E. Baggott 2013 _FareWell to Reality: How Modern Physics Has Betrayed the Search for Scientific Truth_ pg208; citing Albert Einstein 1950 April "On the Generalized Theory of Gravitation" _Scientific American_ pg182)

  "In 1899, there were 4 academic public high schools in Washington, DC -- one black and 3 white.   In standardized tests given that year, students in the black high school averaged higher test scores than students in 2 of the 3 white high schools.   Today, more than a century later, it would be considered Utopian even to set that as a goal, much less expect it to actually happen...   That same school repeatedly equaled or exceeded national norms on standardized tests in the 1930s, 1940s, and early 1950s.   Back in the 1890s, it was called the M Street School and in 1916 it was renamed Dunbar High School...   As of academic year 1892-1893, of the known occupations of these parents, there were 51 laborers, 25 messengers, 12 janitors, and 1 doctor...   More detailed data on parental occupations are available for a later period, from the late 1930s through the mid-1950s.   These data reveal that there were far more children whose mothers were maids than there were whose fathers were doctors.   Mary Gibson Hundley, who taught at Dunbar for many years, wrote: 'A large segment of the homes of the students had 1 or more government employees for support.   Before the 1940s these employees were messengers and clerks, with few exceptions.'" --- Thomas Sowell _Black Rednecks & White Liberals_ pp204-205     (citing 1900 _Report of the Board of Trustees of Public Schools of the District of Columbia to the Commissioners of the District of Columbia: 1898-1899_ pp7,11;     Henry S.

  "The connection between war-time exigencies and peace-time 'norms' was particularly strong in dictatorships.   Nazism, fascism, and communism all explicitly sought to expand and make permanent the societal mobilization of the 1914-1918 period.   As one Nazi put it, 'The National-Socialist ethos grew entirely logically from the soldier ethics of the World War.'   The connection between war-time and peace-time was more tenuous in the liberal democracies but no less real.   The National Recovery Administration set up by president Franklin Roosevelt [FDR] in 1933 was, for instance, modeled on the War Industries Board created by president Woodrow Wilson in 1917.   There was, of course, a world of difference between Stalin's 5-Year Plans and Roosevelt's [Raw Deal], between harsh communism and half-hearted socialism, but both were inspired to some degree by the experience of World War 1 -- a conflict that could never have been waged on such a titanic, transformative scale were it not for the changes in warfare that had occurred in the preious half-century.   This was the bitter-sweet legacy of the Industrial Age." --- Max Boot 2006 _War Made New: Technology, Warfare, and the Course of History 1500 to Today_ pp200-201     (citing Bruce D. Porter 1994 _War and the Rise of the State: The Military Foundations of Modern Politics_ pg217;     David M. Kennedy 1980 _Over Here: The First World War and American Society_ pp140-141;     William H.

Nayla Rush _Center for Immigration Studies_
DoS-funded International Rescue Committee (whose director is a former UK diplomat) involvement in the USA-Australia refugee deal is a clear conflict of interest
"...In this case, the RSC based in Bangkok, which is handling Australia's unwanted refugees, is managed by the IRC.   IRC describes how it assisted the State Department (for a fee of course) by helping 'refugees and their families prepare their cases to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), compiling personal data and background information for security clearance'.   As early as February, IRC staff interviewed and helped refugees on the 2 Australian-run detention centers (on the island nation of Nauru and on Manus Island, part of Papua New Guinea) to build their resettlement cases to submit to USA officials.   [Screening] interviews by USA DHS officials followed in March and April.   Interviews by USA officers...are based on data transmitted to the USA Department of Homeland Security staff by IRC...   So the same IRC that screens refugees abroad and helps them build a case to submit to USA officials for re-settlement also gets paid per capita to receive and place them inside the USA..."

2017-06-13 (5777 Sivan 19)
Jerry Kammer _Center for Immigration Studies_
subtle manipulations of language often bias the discussion of immigration policy
"...Here Jones demonstrated a tactic, widely used among defenders of illegal immigrants, of eliminating the distinction between legality and illegality.   That distinction, of course, is indispensable in a nation where respect for the rule of law is a fundamental value.   Advocates of illegal immigrants often ignore it because they seek to assert the primacy of their belief that it is wrong to enforce laws that make it a crime to enter [(i.e. invade) or remain in] the United States of America without authorization...   Jones' observation that ICE was 'built up to deport' immigrants was disingenuous.   One of the agency's two main divisions, Enforcement and Removal Operations, does indeed have the mission of detaining and deporting illegal immigrants.   (Agents in ICE's other main division, Homeland Security Investigations, investigate, among other things, smuggling, drug trafficking, criminal gang activity, fraud, cybercrime, and intellectual property theft.)   But the more important point here is that Jones, by failing to make a fundamental distinction, blurred the line between legality and illegality.   That is the work of advocates, not journalists..."

president Trump causing surge in more secular, leftist synagogue memberships
"...'Reform' and 'Conservative'...   As Haaretz reported, the Trump presidency has produced a surge in attendance and membership at those synagogues, where a [socialist war against] justice agenda rules and rabbis are outspoken critics of the president...   But there are 2 clear down-sides to the Trump bump that ought to trouble everyone.   One is that the same [leftist] movements that long decried the evils of mixing politics and faith, when it was evangelical Christians who were infusing their churches with partisanship, are now exposed as hypocrites.   One can make reasonable arguments that some elements of Jewish law buttress modern political liberalism, and there may have always been some truth to the old quip about Reform Judaism consisting of the Dem/Red/Leftist Party platform with holidays thrown in.   But once synagogues are dedicated to making religion serve partisan ends, it is always faith that gets the short end of the stick.   While Torah and Jewish peoplehood are eternal concepts, the anti-Trump resistance will come and go..."

Ayaan Hirsi Ali to USA senate: political Islam is incompatible with the USA constitution and USA culture
"...She later stressed, 'Let it be said explicitly: the Islamists' program is fundamentally incompatible with the US Constitution, religious tolerance, the equality of men and women, the tolerance of different sexual orientations, the ban on cruel and unusual punishment and other fundamental human rights.'   Ali explained that intimidation and advancing the goal of imposing Islamic law (sharia) on society are fundamental tenets of political Islam.   She noted that 'Islamism' is the ideology that drives political Islam and 'dawa' provides the means by which it is spread, adding: 'The term «dawa» refers to activities carried out by Islamists to win adherents and enlist them in a campaign to impose sharia law on all societies.   Dawa is not the Islamic equivalent of religious proselytizing, although it is often disguised as such by blending humanitarian activities with subversive political activities...   The ultimate goal of dawa is to destroy the political institutions of a free society and replace them with strict sharia.   Islamists rely on both violent and nonviolent means to achieve their objectives.'   The strategy used by the United States of America to combat violent Islamic extremism has 'failed' because it has solely focused on acts of violence while ignoring the ideology that drives jihadists and Islamists [i.e. ignoring the fraud and incitement to initiate force and fraud ], argued Ali... 'In focusing only on acts of violence, we have ignored the ideology that justifies, promotes, celebrates, and encourages violence, and the methods of dawa used to spread that ideology.'.."

petition to congress: abolish H-1B visas

David North _Center for Immigration Studies_
bodyshoppers help hide displacement of USA citizen workers, keep up firms' appearance of paying high H-1B salaries
"When a baseball player sees a team-mate hit a bases-loaded, game-winning home run he experiences two emotions -- elation for the team, and a whiff of jealousy that he did not get those 4 RBIs and all that applause.     Well, South Carolina lawyer Geoffrey Rhodes, someone I had never heard of, has just pulled off a similar feat in the H-1B field, and I am frankly envious.     Using an interesting research method, he has just demolished the fantasy of high H-1B salaries paid by the big players in the 'IT' world.     He discovered that Cisco, PayPal, MSFT, and E-Bay, for example, follow a (misleading) double track as they use the H-1B system.     On one hand, they seek petitions to hire H-1Bs directly at relatively high salaries (that's the 'Apparent Average H-1B Salary' in the table below), while, on the other, they are quietly using the Indian out-sourcing firms (often called bodyshops) and thus paying low H-1B salaries for large numbers of other, lesser workers.     But because of the way they play the game, up until now only the high salaries could be gleaned from the government data.     Rhodes presented information on the extent of the companies' use of low-wage hires at their head-quarters, in percentages.     I added in the latest average salary information as it appears on Myvisajobs.com [which would have incentives to pad its figures upward to attract more visa applicants], and we see...

Employer/Sponsor Apparent Average
H-1B Salary
Percent of H-1B Hires
through Out-Sourcers
Cisco $127,884 60%
Paypal $134,666 50%
Microsoft $129,610 43%
EBay $137,362 29%
EBay wins that round, on the bases of both higher apparent average salaries and lower use of the out-sourcers.     Rhodes apparently did this work out of non-vocational curiosity.     He found, in a part of the Department of Labor data set that was not tabulated, that if you looked at a job site's address, you could see where the outsourcers were placing their workers.     He then constructed a program that provided him with the data in the third column above.     What no one has yet written about is that this little sleight-of-hand, to the extent that it is for public-relations purposes, is an expensive one.     Someone in each corporation decided that keeping up the appearance (for lobbying purposes) of paying high salaries is worth millions if not tens of millions of dollars a year in fees to the outsourcers.     By playing this game, the Ciscos of this world are presumably paying a 15% or 20% mark-up on the lower-paid workers, in the form of fees to the bodyshops which they would not have to pay if they'd hired the H-1B workers directly.     There are, no doubt, other reasons to use these cheap [young, pliant, easily intimidated, low-skilled on average] contract workers, flexibility presumably chief among them.     But the arrangement provides a useful talking point for industry lobbyists defending the H-1B program in congress.     There must be, on one side of the issue, many a lobbyist gnashing his teeth and hoping that this story will not be told, while, on the other side, there's a nice warm feeling at this information getting out, tainted with a little jealousy at being scooped.     (Another, similar tale, about EB-5, will be posted soon.)     For the full story on this development, see 'The Secret Way Silicon Valley Uses the H-1B program', by Joshua Brustein of Bloomberg News."
At the same time, a report early this morning on the radio said that people earning $150K/year in Sili Valley can't afford housing, so some employers are providing Red-China-like bunk-houses/dormitories so that many can be crammed into tight quarters.

can a divided USA survive?
Patriot Post (with a good illustration)
"The United States of America is currently the world's oldest democracy.   But [the USA is/are] no more immune from collapse than were some of history's most stable and impressive consensual governments.   Fifth-century Athens, Republican Rome, Renaissance Florence and Venice, and many of the elected governments of early 20th-century Western European states eventually destroyed themselves, went bankrupt or were over-run by invaders.   The United States of America is dividing as rarely before.   Half the country, mostly [illiberal Dem/Red/Leftist USA], is concentrated in 146 of the nation's more than 3,000 counties -- in an area that collectively represents less than 10% of the USA land mass.   The other half, the [conservative/classical liberal/libertarian Blue] states of the interior of [the USA], is geographically, culturally, economically, politically and socially at odds with [Red-state USA], which resides mostly on the 2 coasts.   The 2 [USAs] watch different news.   They read very different books, listen to different music and watch different television shows.   Increasingly, they now live lives according to 2 widely different traditions...   Currently, some 27% of all Californians were not born in the United States of America.   More than 40M foreign-born immigrants currently reside in the USA -- the highest number in the nation's history.   Yet widely unchecked immigration comes at a time when the country has lost confidence in its prior successful adherence to melting-pot assimilation and integration.   The ultimate result is a fragmenting of society into tribal cliques that vie for power, careers and influence on the basis of ethnic solidarity rather than shared [USAness].   History is not very kind to multi-cultural chaos -- as opposed to a multi-racial society united by a single national culture..."

refugees do not pay their own way
"...They should have been more skeptical.   The claim that refugees contribute more in taxes than they receive in benefits is simply implausible.   The public sector struggles with budget deficits every year, and it relies on the taxes paid by the highest-earning Americans to stay even close to fiscal balance.   If disproportionately low-earning and high-welfare-consuming Americans were somehow net fiscal contributors, then governments at all levels would be deep in the black, and politicians would be sparring over what to do with the massive surpluses.   So how does the Evans-Fitzgerald paper come to such an implausible result? First, the authors count all (or nearly all) taxes paid by refugees but reduce the services they receive to 6 'social programs' [i.e. unconstitutional socialist illfare scams] -- cash welfare, SSI, [Socialist Insecurity], food stamps, Medicare, and Medicaid.   All other costs that governments might incur from immigration -- housing, infrastructure, education, law enforcement, and so on -- do not count.   Second, they fail to adjust for the underreporting of those 'social programs' [i.e. unconstitutional socialist illfare scams] in the American Community Survey (ACS)..."

city of Utica wrecked by Muslim "refugee" invasion
"...'...I would like to tell you what it is like living in an area where the major city is about 25% (or more) refugee, mainly Muslim.'   The first thing Loretta noticed under increasing Islamization during the Obama era was the conversion of an old Methodist church into a mosque.   The next was that Muslim immigrants were increasingly put in local positions of bureaucratic power.   'So let me just summarize: the social worker at the school is Muslim, the administrator who OKs [or rejects] home-schooling is Muslim, the CPS worker is Muslim, the nurse practitioner at the ER is Muslim, the doctor at the ER is Muslim.   These are positions of authority that wield a lot of power.', Loretta notes.   The next development was far more alarming.   'In 2015, a 26-year-old Bosnian refugee in Utica was arrested for supporting ISIL/ ISIS/ IS/ Daesh/ caliphate.', Loretta writes.   'I went to a couple Trump rallies and meetings in upstate NY before we moved [to North Carolina].   When I mentioned the arrest of this ISIS supporter to a local businessman at one of the meetings, he got a very serious look and said Utica was full of ISIL/ ISIS/ IS/ Daesh/ caliphate and the local police were really worried.'   As the post-industrial economy of upstate New York continued to collapse, Loretta's husband lost his job.   Attempting to find temporary relief through food stamps, Loretta went to the local Department of Social Services.   What she found there was a Kafkaesque bureaucratic nightmare: Even though her family had no income and four children, her application for food stamps was rejected several times.   'Want to know why my application was rejected several times even though we qualified?', Loretta asks.   'The Department of Social Services in my area is swamped because of the refugees.   25% of the city are refugees.   Virtually all of the refugees are on welfare.   And when they apply for welfare, they don't do so as an independent entity, as I did.   They go through their refugee resettlement agency [that gets beaucoup bux from the federal government] who deals with the Department of Social Services for them.   So basically Americans get the short shrift, and refugees get taken care of.'   Not only do refugees get preferential treatment over American citizens, but they bring disease as well.   Loretta cited a WND article relaying the re-emergence of TB in Utica.   'This is why so many Democrats voted for Trump.   Americans are getting squeezed out by non-Americans at multiple levels.', she believes.   The county where Utica is located is historically a Democrat county, but it went for Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election.   'Americans can see that they are being forced to accommodate non-Americans to their own detriment and expense.', Loretta states..."

the secret provisions of the USA-Australia refugee deal better be very good for the USA, because the public parts are not
"A quick update on the USA-Australia refugee resettlement deal I've been writing about (see here, here, and here).     The latest development came with the news Thursday of Australian prime-minister Malcolm Turnbull mocking president Trump during the Australian Parliament's annual MidWinter Ball, which is the premier event of the political year in Canberra, similar to the White House Correspondents Dinner.     Unlike the USA version, Turnbull's speech in front of journalists, advisers, and politicians, was supposed to be off the record.     Australia's Channel Nine leaked part of the audio in which Turnbull is heard making fun of his meeting with Trump in New York last month: 'It was beautiful.     It was the most beautiful putting-me-at-ease ever.'...     Speaking on Australian radio station 3AW, Turnbull said he was disappointed with this 'breach of protocol', adding that his speech was 'light-hearted, affectionate, good natured'.     Good-natured or not, this complicates an already rocky relationship between both leaders, and casts even more doubt on the USA-Australia refugee resettlement deal carried out by the Trump administration.     If Turnbull 'affectionately' mocked president Trump behind the scenes, other actors involved in this re-settlement deal were more openly critical of the USA president.     The International Rescue Committee (IRC) has openly criticized president Trump's efforts to pause the refugee re-settlement program for assessment.     IRC is a USA-based non-governmental organization that is partly funded by the State Department [i.e. by USA tax-victims].     In the case of Australia's unwanted refugees, IRC is acting both as a resettlement support center (RSC) and a domestic resettlement agency (or 'volag') for the State Department.     That means that the same IRC that is paid by the [USA tax-victim] to screen Australia's unwanted refugees and help them build a case to submit to USA officials for re-settlement (that's the function of a re-settlement support center) also gets paid by the head to receive and place them into communities in the United States of America (the function of a volag).     This odd 'double role' is not the subject of today's post; I discussed this issue in a previous one.     What is strange in a context of Trump-bashing is that this organization that receives funding from the Trump administration to help with the refugee re-settlement process does not hesitate to publically oppose its immigration policies...     Is this really the organization the Trump administration wants to fund and rely on to re-settle Australia's unwanted 'refugees'?   There's more.     Australia's unwanted asylum seekers themselves seem to have nothing but disdain for president Trump.     Behrouz Boochani, an asylum seeker detained on Manus Island (one of Australia's off-shore detention centers) is very active on social media, giving a voice to all detainees who do not have his exposure.     Boochani is a Kurdish journalist born in Iran who was arrested and transferred to Manus Island in 2013 August as he was trying to reach Australia by boat from Indonesia.     He writes from his detention and collaborates with journalists, [so-called] human rights activists, refugee advocates, [and visa/immigration/border reform opponents].     Disdain or not, these refugees will soon be resettled in the United States (many, if not most, by October 31) by the Trump administration.     On a separate note, we also found out this week that a settlement agreement was reached in a law-suit between Australia's off-shore detainees on Manus Island and the Australian government: All asylum seekers detained on Manus Island between 2012 and 2016 (some 2K detainees) are to be paid a total of $70M in compensation for allegedly enduring physical and psychological harm during their detention.     This means that every refugee re-settled in the United States of America from Manus Island is entitled to this financial compensation.     The details of this deal, which remain classified, better be really great for [the USA].     Otherwise, I'm at a loss for words."

  "A key role in the spread of pacificism in France was played by the schools -- more specifially, by the French teachers' unions, which began organized campaigns in the 1920s, objecting to post-war text-books favorably depicting the French soldiers who had defended their country against German invaders in the First World War. Such text-books were called 'bellicose' -- a verbal tactic common among those with the vision of the anointed, of reducing views different from their own to mere emotions, as if in this case only pugnaciousness could account for resisting invaders or for praising those who had put their lives on the line to do so. The leading teachers' union, the Syndicat national des instituteurs (SN) launched a campaign against those text-books 'of bellicose inspiration' which it characterized as 'a danger for the organization of peace'. Since nationalism was said to be one of the causes of war, internationalism or 'impartiality' among nations was considered to be a required feature of text-books... Leaders of the drive to rewrite history text-books called their goal 'moral disarmament' to match the military disarmament which many regarded as another key to peace." --- Thomas Sowell 2010 _Intellectuals & Society_ pg221 (citing Mona L. Siegel 2004 _The Moral Disarmament of France: Education, Pacificism, and Patriotism 1914-1940_ pp127, 132, 146, 160; Daniel J. Sherman 1999 _The Constructino of Memory in InterWar France_ pg300)

  "External Reality Hypothesis (ERH)...   Mathematical Universe Hypothesis (MUH)...   Well, Galileo and [Eugene Wigner] and lots of other scientists would argue that abstract mathematics describes reality.   Plato would say that mathematics exists somewhere out there as an ideal reality.   I am working in between.   I have this sort of crazy-sounding idea that the reason why mathematic is so effective at describing reality [as long as you ignore/neglect/throw out/ignore results of division by zero, squares of complex numbers and other results mathematicians &/or physicists lack the fortitude to dare define] is that it is reality.   That is the mathematical universe hypothesis: Mathematical things actually exist, and they are actually physical reality." --- Max Tegmark (quoted in James E. Baggott 2013 _FareWell to Reality: How Modern Physics Has Betrayed the Search for Scientific Truth_ pg237; citing Adam Frank 2008 July 16 "Is the Universe Actually Made of Math?" _Discover_
