    At the Cato Institute recently, a libertarian law professor claimed we could not enforce mass deportations but did not mention what illegal immigration already costs American taxpayers. "We cannot afford to remove 18 million," Josh Blackman, an associate professor of law at the Houston College of Law, said at Cato's Constitution Day conference. "We have only enough money to remove 400,000." Blackman has signed onto Cato legal briefs challenging Obama Administration executive orders on immigration and notes that there are many constituencies in the U. S. that block federal enforcement of immigration rules. Meanwhile, "Public school districts across the United...

    I have been regular, listening to Glenn Beck and Mark Levin in the past and enjoyed their musings, analysis, postings. Then they got behind Cruz they made me wonder. After Trump fought for and won the nomination, they went nuts. Successful businessman, family man, one seeing the derailment of Regan's GOP into RATs ditch became the enemy of these "big mouths". They disregarded the support of majority of disenchanted population, they "know better" - he is not "good enough conservative". I gather he is supposed to be as conservative as establishment republicans, who shafted recent Tea Party elected reps into...

    An Islamic street preacher has been arrested and charged after allegedly screaming abuse at a woman for wearing 'tight jeans' and shouting 'Allahu Akbar' in a police officer's face. Krissoni Henderson appeared to be caught on camera angrily confronting the officer - who was investigating a complaint made against the 31-year-old. The unnamed policeman was called to New Street in Birmingham city centre at around 5.30pm on July 4 following a 999 call from a 38-year-old woman who said she feared for her safety after a verbal confrontation. She alleged she had been shouted and sworn at.

    The teacher, Nooshafarin Ravaghi, had traveled the world, spoke three languages and wrote a collection of children's books about a young girl's discovery of her Persian heritage, according to her website. The student, Hossein Nayeri, had fled the United States twice to escape prosecution and was awaiting trial in a brutal torture plot that left a man burned, bleeding and near death in the Mojave Desert. Ravaghi had been teaching in the jails since fall 2014 and passed a Sheriff's Department background check, according to a statement released by the Rancho Santiago Community College District. She had been teaching at...

    SALEM, N.H. Using the astronomical chart on a table in the covered tower, visitors aim their gaze along worn arrows to huge, upright stones hundreds of feet away. Beyond each slab of granite, clearings stretch the eye to the horizon on a dazzling day in late summer New Hampshire. On Wednesday's autumnal equinox, people will flock to the woods near the Massachusetts state line, watch the sun rise or fall over the massive chunks of granite and decide for themselves whether they're standing amid relics of ancient history or pure hooey.
  • Jeb Bush strikes back at Donald Trump in Spanish (again)

    A defiant Jeb Bush struck back at Donald Trump on Thursday, declaring in English and Spanish that he would campaign with "los brazos abiertos" -- arms wide open. It was an admonishment of Trump's suggestion to Breitbart News on Tuesday that Bush should refrain from speaking in Spanish and "set the example by speaking English while in the United States." During a town hall in Hampton, New Hampshire, Bush didn't back down in the face of Trump's criticism, alleging that Trump would lead the Republican Party to defeat in next year's election. In another sign that the Bush's campaign no...

    On Friday of last week, while at the White Houses Rose Garden, a very interesting thing had happen to prove that even now, President Barack Hussein Obama did go over the line with this surprise decision to not deport young adults illegals who came over to the United States of America as infants or small children. It took the USA by complete surprise, considering on Friday afternoons is the traditional end of the week documents dumping time. But the really BIG SURPRISE came when a gentleman from the online blog called The Daily Callers Neil Munro out of the blue...

    Dire consequences. In political arena you have options: 1) be on idiot or 2) be absolutely clueless of whats going on, and then is 3) purposely pretend to be on side of groups, while dismantling fabric of nation. You choose. We are leaving in world upside down, what is right is portrayed as clueless selfish thinking, while what is wrong is being perceived as well organize community and structure of thoughts as well human beings. It is in that context that so many in media as well in political arena, were able to not only destroy essence of what is...

    The State Column ^ | 10 Feb 2011
    Tennessee governor Bill Haslam is pushing state legislators to pass a comprehensive immigration reform bill. The Tennessee Republican said Wednesday he is working with state Republican legislative leaders to develop a broad-based bill aimed at addressing illegal immigration. Mr. Haslam says he plans to put forth a number of bills, all of which are meant to address a certain immigration issue. One of the proposals would require the written portion of drivers license exams be given in English, a proposal that has sparked debate in the past. What I want to make certain is that those businesses that have located...

    About 8,300 students in Boston who are not fluent in English will receive the extra help to which they are legally entitled to overcome their language barriers, under a settlement reached between federal civil rights investigators and the Boston public schools. The agreement, announced this afternoon by local and federal officials, caps off an investigation launched earlier this year by the US departments of education and justice, who were concerned that Boston schools had been denying thousands of students appropriate services to learn English since 2003. The students, starting this school year, now receive specialized instruction in core academic classes,...

    Whenever criticizing grammar and punctuation, you run the risk of being labeled punctilious. Worse still, since even many good writers involved in Internet journalism disgorge the odd typo, there's the chance you will come to be regarded as an expert on the glass-house real estate market.Yet there's no doubt that the much lamented decline in journalism is about style as well as substance. And, just occasionally, you encounter an example of it that demands some attention. Such is a Channel 13 Action News (ABC) article titled "Las Vegas Mayor Goodman rejects Obama invitation," a piece that is, you might say,...

    THE COLLECTED TALES OF AMERICAN ATROCITIES, WHICH LEFTISTS RELY UPON THE WAY OTHERS SEARCH THE SCRIPTURES FOR SOLACE, is getting shorter. Like allegations of torture at Guantanamo, Koran desecration, and detainee murders in Afghanistan, the Haditha massacre is increasingly being exposed as a fairy tale. Unfortunately, this canard was invented and popularized, not by terrorist propagandists to discredit an enemy army, but by American politicians to demonize U.S. soldiers and drain their own nation's will to fight an ongoing war a war which we are winning and which the same politicians voted to authorize. Last Friday, the government dismissed...

Waiting for La Raza to condemn this as racist in 3...2... Yes, I'm about to go off on another "politics of emotion" diatribe. Like most modern education ideas designed to make the kids' lives easier while they're in school, long-term ESL programs have the predictable effect of hurting the kids outside of school.

  • Britain: English a Minority Language in Some London Schools

    Trumpet ^ | 8-13-09
    Pupils who speak English as a first language are in the minority in 13 out of Londons 33 boroughs, according to official figures released Tuesday. Fifty-six percent of children in elementary schools in inner London do not speak English as their first language. Throughout the country, English is not the mother tongue to one in seven elementary-school-aged children. Such high numbers of inexperienced, and in many cases, incapable, English speakers is putting a heavy burden on Britains education system. Far more disturbing than this, though, is that it shows how much immigration is changing Britain. The data, from the Department...
