    When there is a crumbling of major certainties, the unifying principles evaporate and the most absurd things become possible. In the scramble to make sense out of the present election cycle, analysts have come up with all sorts of theories. One popular explanation claims that people are hardening in their positions. On the left and the right, all parties are holding rigidly to their agendas, forcing their will upon the rest of the nation making it difficult to get things done. Thus, people claim the only solution is to smash through all the rigid agendas and just do whatever it...

    Africa Confidential ^ | 1ST APRIL 2016
    Night of the generals 1ST APRIL 2016 Increasing surveillance of ANC dissidents and burglaries of journalists and activists point to paranoia at the top A veteran of the pre-liberation African National Congress armed wing, Umkhonto we Sizwe (MK, Spear of the Nation), General Siphiwe 'Gebuza' Nyanda doesn't scare easily. Yet when a well armed hijacker decided on 23 March to make off with his Porsche luxury car, he didn't offer any resistance. Nyanda survived without a scratch and the car was found without serious damage a few hours later. Another random hijacking? Perhaps, but it has emerged that Nyanda is...

This week my White Toga award goes to Ted Cruz. As thousands of rent a mobs from Soros funded Move On, the White...

    The UN's Role in U.S. Refugee Resettlement A "benefit of the doubt" screening policy By Nayla Rush January 2016 Nayla Rush is a senior researcher at the Center for Immigration Studies. Summary: The U.S. refugee resettlement program for Syrians relies heavily on the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. The UNHCR's role goes beyond providing shelter and services to people in the region; the United States entrusts UNHCR with the entire selection and pre-screening process for Syrian refugees eligible for resettlement in the United States. Given that role, more inquiry into UNHCR's activities is warranted. United Nations Following the Paris...

    Foreign operatives and foreign-owned businesses changing America by changing the people Posted by Ann Corcoran on January 13, 2016 The Wall Street Journal’s Miriam Jordan gives us a peak inside the employment services that the nine major refugee resettlement contractors offer American businesses. I just want to scream when I see stories like this—what about Americans who might like to own a small business or need work? Everyone working in ‘pockets of resistance’ must begin to expose the businesses in your city and state that work with refugee contractors to displace American workers. And, don’t forget the Chamber of Commerce!...

We have been writing about Amarillo, Texas (a ‘pocket of resistance’) for a couple of years (see our complete archive by clicking here). Like so many meatpacking towns in America, federal refugee resettlement contractors*** got a foot hold there years ago (mostly working as ‘head hunters’ for the meatpacking industry) and have continued to pour third-worlders into Amarillo despite pleas by elected officials to STOP!
