    American Thinker ^ | 05/03/2019 | Thomas Lifson
    MSN News reprints a paywalled Los Angeles Times story on a startling development: California’s population growth has tumbled to the slowest rate in the state’s history.  The wonderful weather, scenery, and other attractions that have drawn people since 1849 no longer work. In asking themselves why this should be the case, writers Javier Panzar and Sarah Parvini manage to overlook the factor to is uppermost in my mind as I contemplate ending more than 30 years’ residence in the Golden State: the highest in the nation taxes, contrasted with the dismal state of the highways, schools, and other public...

    You can't go a week without another report of businesses and people leaving California because of the high cost of housing. Today it's the Wall Street Journal's turn, in a story headlined, "California Has the Jobs but Not Enough Homes." The problem -- a self-inflicted problem if there ever was one -- is that the hot economy is creating jobs, but developers can't build enough affordable living space. The WSJ reports that "companies are expanding outside the state or moving outright as an affordable-housing crisis casts a shadow on the booming economy."More: For employers, were at a crisis stage,...

    A new poll shows a third of New York residents plan to move because they can't afford to stay. Businesses that are closing cited "economic" reasons for their decision. They represent a wide array of industries including a biotech company, investment bank, internet services, commercial printer, and a Walmart online ordering processor. New York governor Andrew Cuomo (D.), who is still reeling from the loss of Amazon, told CBS local news on Wednesday he was "sick to my stomach" and it was the "greatest tragedy I have seen since I've been in government." Amazon's deal would have provided $27 billion...

According to a recent survey, 53 percent of all Californians, 63 percent of millennials, and 76 percent of residents in the Bay Area say they are seriously considering leaving the state.

    Did Beto O’Rourke try to flee the scene of his accident in 1998 to avoid being arrested for a DWI? In his debate last week, the Democratic challenger to Sen. Ted Cruz admitted to his “terrible mistake” of drunk driving, “for which there is no excuse or justification or defense,” but insisted that he never tried to flee the scene as the Houston Chronicle reported. O’Rourke turned the debate question away from his own guilt and into an improbable lecture on white privilege, a rather clever political move.But did O’Rourke get away with a lie? Karen Townsend noted the...

The Washington, D.C. cardinal successor to disgraced ex-Cardinal Theodore McCarrick and former bishop of Pittsburgh, where a recent grand jury report says he helped shuffle around and cover for sex abuser priests, is in hiding while final plans for sneaking him out of the country are executed, Voris reported.

    CNS News ^ | July 27 | Stan Greer
    Few people would deny that, as a rule, parents want what is best for their children and keep their childrens needs, including their material needs, in mind when they make important decisions for their families. If this eminently plausible supposition is correct, then there is clear evidence that government-authorized forced unionism makes it more difficult for parents to provide their children with a comfortable standard of living and good prospects for the future. At this time, 22 states have yet to adopt Right to Work laws protecting employees from being forced to pay dues or fees to an unwanted union...

    Its not just luxury-home listings that are piling up in New York City. Even units for less than $1 million within reach of far more people than a Billionaires Row penthouse are hurting for buyers.

Such listings jumped 17 percent to 2,738 in Brooklyn, and climbed 6 percent to 2,314 in Queens, a borough usually sought out for its relative affordability.

    According to new research released by Charles Varner, associate director of the Stanford Center on Poverty and Inequality, California lost an estimated 138 high-income individuals following passage of the Proposition 30 income tax increase championed by Gov. Jerry Brown (D) and approved by Golden State voters in 2012. This new research by Varner updates a previous paper released six years ago that looked at domestic migration to and from California following a 2004 income tax hike. One reason we wanted to update our previous paper is that this tax change in 2012 is the largest state tax change that we...

    States with high taxes are at risk of losing people, business and money. In fact, conservative economists Arthur Laffer and Stephen Moore argue that up to 1.3 million people will leave California, Connecticut, New Jersey, Minnesota and New York over the next three years and move to states with lower taxes. The impact of tax migration is particularly interesting to examine in a state such as Florida, a low-tax swing state that is expected to pick up two Electoral College votes. While the northern area around Orlando contains large communities of conservative-leaning Midwestern migrants, Fort Lauderdale and Boca Raton see...

    Tracking the rich has become a voyeuristic global industry, a form of celebrity worship. But it can also provide serious clues about where countries are headed. When a country begins to fall into economic and political difficulty, wealthy people are often the first to ship their money to safer havens abroad. The rich dont always emigrate along with their money, but when they do, it is an even more telling sign of trouble. Since 2013, New World Wealth, a research outfit based in South Africa, has been tracking millionaire migrations by culling property records, visa programs, news media reports and...

    With the 2018 midterms months away and the 2020 presidential election cycle approaching rapidly, Democrats are considering how to improve their poor showings in 2014 and 2016. The party has been debating sometimes heatedly how to do this. Which voters should they target? How should Democrats target them? But heres whats clear: White voters have been fleeing the Democratic Party, and thats a big reason Democrats are looking to rebound from back-to-back losses. Whites have slowly but consistently moved away from the Democratic Party. These recent losses are on top of Democrats losses among Southern whites during the...

    Failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton told an audience in New Zealand Monday that she gave some thought to permanently leaving the United States and settling in that country after Donald Trump scored his upset victory over her in 2016. I want to thank some of you for sending good wishes a very long way during my campaign and the months that followed. I received a number of invitations from Kiwis to permanently relocate here, Clinton tells the Auckland, New Zealand audience in a video posted by an organ of the Republican National Committee. I must say, I really did appreciate...

    That headline arrives via email from a money manager in northern New Jersey. The Garden State already has the third largest overall tax burden and the countrys highest property tax collections per capita. Now that federal reform has limited the deduction for state and local taxes, the price of government is surging again among high-income earners in New Jersey and other blue states. Taxpayers are searching for the exits. In the financial industry of course its not just the clients who are looking for greener pastures. One hedge fund manager moving his office to a southern state reports that his...

    The top executive of a Southern California private charter airline says the Golden States hostile business environment propelled his companys decision to relocate to Texas. Not being viewed as an enemy, but being viewed as an asset is so refreshing, said Alex Wilcox, Chief Executive Officer of JetSuite Inc. He described the air carriers decision to move to North Texas this summer as a welcome change. He shared a glaring example of one difference between California and business-friendly Texas.
