On immigration, America’s incompetent elite fiddles while the border burns

Fox News, by Steve Hilton Posted By: Pluperfect- Sun, 24 15 2018 09:15:33 GMT Immigration has always been the most inflammatory of political issues. We all have strong feelings. Mine are shaped by the fact that I’m an immigrant twice over. My parents fled communism in Hungary and were welcomed by Britain, where I was born and raised. And now here I am in America, making a new home for our family since we moved here in 2012. It’s impossible for me to be anything other than pro’immigration. Let me add a few more elements of personal context. Soon after moving to the U.S., I came back from a short foreign trip and was detained at

Republicans prepare bill allowing migrant children to be detained more than 20 days

ABC News, by Tara Palmeri Posted By: Pluperfect- Sun, 24 19 2018 09:19:48 GMT Republican lawmakers are preparing to vote on a more narrow immigration bill that would allow immigrant children to stay in detention facilities with their parents for more than 20 days, senior White House and Hill officials tell ABC News. The bill would correct an issue with President Trump´s executive order to stop the separation of children from parents who entered the country illegally. The existing law requires that children be released from detention after 20 days. The House is scheduled to vote on a larger “compromise” immigration bill early next week that would include DACA, border security and visas. But the

Historic day as Saudi women get behind the wheel to drive

Al Arabia, by Ismaeel Naar Posted By: MissMolly- Sun, 24 29 2018 09:29:08 GMT Saudi women were officially able to drive at the stroke of midnight on June 24 as a royal decree granting them the right to drivers’ licenses came into effect. Traffic departments have begun implementing carefully planned procedures in preparation for the influx of cars expected to be on the roads. There is currently a 500 to 900 riyal imposed on women who drive before the ban is officially lifted. “As a Saudi woman who has grown up with multiple expat drivers taking me around, it is empowering to know that I can soon explore my own country while in the

American Thinker, by Clarice Feldman Posted By: JoniTx- Sun, 24 29 2018 09:29:47 GMT The advantage of having to write a column at the end of the week is that usually within seven days, the latest leftist meme has been thoroughly debunked. And so it is …

North Korea erasing most anti’US propaganda

New York Post, by Eileen AJ Connelly Posted By: JoniTx- Sun, 24 38 2018 09:38:39 GMT Nix the nuclear warheads, cue the doves.The North Korean government is erasing much of its anti’U.S. propaganda following dictator Kim Jong’un’s forays onto the world stage.Gone are the posters depicting the U.S. as a “rotten, diseased, pirate nation” and promising “merciless revenge” on American forces for an imagined attack on the totalitarian country.In their place are cheery messages touting praising the prospects for Korean reunification and the declaration Kim signed in April with South Korean President Moon Jae’in promising “lasting peace,” according to reports.Still the most isolated country in the world, very few North Koreans have access to news and

Democrats refuse to acknowledge safe borders are necessary

New York Post, by Michael Goodwin Posted By: MissMolly- Sun, 24 39 2018 09:39:46 GMT In politics, as in life, lucky is the person with clumsy and incompetent enemies. By that measure, President Trump is the luckiest man on Earth. As illustrated by the growing proof of FBI bias against him and the left’s incoherent rage over his immigration policies, Trump’s political enemies these days resemble the passenger list on a ship of fools. Consider the expanding revelations of FBI misconduct during the 2016 campaign, especially the text where top agent Peter Strzok vows that “we’ll stop” Trump from becoming president. Strzok was dumb to make the promise — and doubly dumb for making it to his FBI

NPR: Trump Staffers Are Hypocrites for Eating at Mexican Restaurants

PJ Media, by Stephen Kruiser Posted By: MissMolly- Sun, 24 43 2018 09:43:25 GMT It´s come to this: according to some, people should be picking their casual dining choices based on their politics. NPR published an opinion piece by writer Monique Truong that claims in the headline that it is “hypocrisy” for administration members who support President Trump´s way of handling the long’ignored border crisis to eat at Mexican restaurants. These are people who work for the president, of course, so they are essentially being taken to task for doing their jobs. Truong considers recent forays to Mexican food dining establishments by administration policy adviser Stephen Miller and Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen to be a

The UN was designed to fail. And it does

Washington Examiner [DC], by Henry Miller Posted By: Pluperfect- Sun, 24 52 2018 09:52:38 GMT Commenting on the U.S.’ withdrawal from the United Nations’ misnamed Human Rights Council, Ambassador Nikki Haley didn’t mince words. She called it a “hypocritical and self’serving” organization that actually protects rights abusers, and a “cesspool of political bias.” Although best’known for its peace’keeping in areas of conflict — where it enjoys a mixed record, at best — the U.N.’s agencies, commissions, and panels have a dismal record of accomplishment, especially while acting as the world’s regulator’wannabe for all manner of products, processes and activities. Along with failing to defend human rights, the U.N. regularly panders to activists and, not coincidentally, adopts

The Real Reason Feathered Dinosaurs Won’t Appear In Jurassic Park Has Nothing To Do With Science

The Federalist, by Aaron Gleason Posted By: Pluperfect- Sun, 24 04 2018 10:04:50 GMT Since the feathered dinosaur revolution of the last couple decades, every time a dinosaur movie comes out it hatches think pieces about how the film is trampling on science. This will continue until Hollywood acquiesces and finally turns these bygone monsters into birds. As part of the press surrounding the latest Jurassic Park film, paleontologist Jack Horner was recently featured on KPCC’s “The Frame” to discuss his advisory role on the biggest dino franchise of them all. He’s been there pretty much since the beginning, and now he’s claiming that they knew back in 1992 and ‘93 that velociraptors had feathers.

Study: Mass Migration Nearly The Sole Driver of European Population Growth

A new study from Austria has contended that not only is mass migration a large driver of population growth in Europe, but it may be close to being the sole driver, as native birthrates stagnate or decline.
