  • Cost to settle a refugee family

    I cannot get a straight answer to the question “What is the cost to settle a ‘refugee’ (typically a family of ‘refugees’) and make them part of our society. I mean a real total of processing abroad, transportation, living allowances, translation services, medical treatment, supplementary income, and others. Data 20 years old and way under-valued by now is at http://www.utexas.edu/lbj/uscir/respapers/efc-feb97.pdf. That would include: 1.) initial costs and ongoing by the Fed (report estimates $8600/year for healthcare alone) 2.) initial costs and ongoing by the States 3.) initial costs and ongoing by the charities (personnel, shelters, advisors – all are costs...
  • Democratic Staffer: Homeschooling Lobby 'Scary', Not Rational

    Capitol Confidential ^ | 9/3/2015 | Tom Gantert
    The left-leaning nonprofit ProPublica recently ran an article on home schooling that opened by relating an anecdote from 2003. It tells of a 19-year-old man in New Jersey who weighed just 45 pounds and was found rummaging through a neighbor’s garbage. The explanation for how such a thing could happen is delivered by a state politician who says, “I was told it was because he was homeschooled.” The story, co-published on the liberal Slate.com, then quotes Ellen Heinitz, who is the legislative director for a Democratic state representative from Detroit, about her experience with a national homeschooling lobbying group called...

    Judicial Tyranny: Kentucky Judge Does With A Gavel What Bull Connor Did With Dogs And Fire Hoses By Todd Starnes September 04, 2015 FoxNews.com Pastor Rick Warren once told me the fight for religious liberty would become the civil rights issue of our generation. On Thursday Pastor Warren's prophetic words were fulfilled at the hands of the United States Government.

    Obama, Hillary and their ilk have also spawned a 21st century Frankenstein monster: the radical "black lives matter" movement which cares nothing for non-black lives These Democratic leaders have the blood of many innocents on their hands. Mr. Obama lit the racial powder keg back in 2009 with his mischaracterization that Boston cops “acted stupidly” in arresting a black Harvard professor, Henry Louis Gates Jr., for being belligerent with law enforcement at the man’s home. At the time, Mr. Obama said, “I don’t know, not having been there and not seeing all the facts, what role race played.” Indeed, Democrats...

    Clearly, from the vitriol pouring forth from the ruling class, Trump's not one of them. He's flying our flag, fighting our battles, and taking the enemy down. No, he's not one of them, he's one of us. I’m told that in supporting Donald Trump, I’m advocating for a civil war within the Republican party. Let me be clear, I’m not trying to start a civil war, I’m simply joining a revolution. I’m taking up arms (in my case a pen) for the conservative cause against the ruling class of Washington insiders, the UniParty (Democrats and Republicans), the media, and activist...

    News means telling the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. It all went down so pat—especially if you watched it on CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Corporation) in a story that started with the Canadian television network before thanks to the Internet going worldwide: The body of dear little 3-year-old Alan Kurdi, washed up on a beach; his 5-year-old brother, Galib and mother, Rehan, drowned in a tragic attempt for a better life in Europe. Only his grieving father, Abdullah, left to take their bodies back to Kobane, Syria. All the Canadian government’s fault. What a story! And right...

    Michigan Capitol Confidential ^ | 9/2/2015 | James Hohman
    State law requires the managers of Michigan’s school employee retirement system to base annual pension contributions on an assumption that its investments will generate an average return of around 8 percent per year. If the actual returns don’t reliably meet or beat that level over time, it means contributions into the pension fund will be insufficient to pay for the retirement benefits of employees. The result is a long term unfunded liability that taxpayers eventually have to pay. Michigan’s school pension system has put taxpayers on the hook for a $26.5 billion unfunded liability. The 6.5 percent return earned by...

    When provisions were added to the Immigration and Nationality Act in 1986 that forbid the hiring (or referring for a fee) of an alien unauthorized to work in the United States, people thought it would be a game-changer. The prohibitions were accompanied by civil fines and even criminal penalties for repeat offenders.The "employer sanctions" laws, as they are usually described, also included prohibitions on "use of labor through contract", reflecting legislators' awareness that without them, employers would try to skirt the law forbidding hiring of illegal aliens by claiming they were contract employees, or by conveniently using subcontractors to do...

There’s something to this. Marx’s disciples like Mao, Stalin, Pol Pot, Castro, and the Kim family have between them killed many more people than perished at the hands of Adolf.

    The incorporationist doctrine should be rejected. The simple fact of its long use lends it no credibility – a bad idea is still bad, even if it has the weight of long usage behind it. When he authored the Kentucky Resolution of 1798, Thomas Jefferson based his arguments for nullification, in part, upon the compact theory of the relationship between the states and the Federal Government. According to this original understanding of the State-Federal relationship, the Constitution under which the Republic was to operate was the creation of the several states, and thus the Federal government was also the creation...

    Market research surveys commissioned by one of the nation’s largest environmentalist groups advises activists to “talk about yourselves as conservationists — not environmentalists,” “do not make global warming/climate change the primary rationale for conservation,” “do not use the threat of ‘sprawl’ unless with core supporters,” and “do not focus on ‘green’ jobs as a primary rationale for conservation.” These quotes are found in a pair of documents, one from 2004 and one from 2013, that expose what might be called the environmental movement’s political messaging intended for public consumption. The documents are based on research commissioned by The Nature Conservancy,...

    With every illegal alien, Chinese hacker and diplomatic schmuck Trump calls out, the MSM believe they’ve finally captured the quote that will sink him. Instead, audiences welcome his plain talk and clamor for more Many people have been surprised by Donald Trump’s domination of media election coverage. Compared to other top tier candidates, he spends little on advertising, yet he’s mentioned in almost every story on the campaign, and he has rocketed to the top of the GOP field. How is this possible? Thank the mainstream media. It’s not that they want to help Trump. In fact, they are anxious...

    The victims of Obama's failure On Monday, as many as 126 teachers, schoolgirls and kindergartners were poisoned at the Habibul Mustafa School in Afghanistan’s western Herat province. Herat provincial hospital spokesman Muhammad Rafiq Sherzai revealed some of the victims were vomiting and some were unconscious when they were admitted, but that they were all in stable condition. “A health team has been sent to the area for investigations,” he added. Herat police spokesman Abdul Raouf Ahmadi said police have initiated an investigation, but no arrests have been made at this point. And while no group has claimed responsibility for the...

    The National Instant Check System (NICS)  performs a check when people buy firearms from federally licensed dealers in the United States.  It is also used to perform background checks on people applying for firearm carry permits in those states where such permits are required or offered by law.  As there are now over 15 million carry permits in the United States, and firearm sales numbers are in the 10 to 20 million range per year, you can see that the number of NICS checks is not a perfect fit for the number of firearms sold. One of the reasons...

      A revelation coming out of Hillary Clinton's emails was her keen interest in the Presidential ambitions of one General David Petraeus: "Clemons had dinner this week with Petraeus, who freely talked about running for president," Blumenthal wrote to Clinton. "Will he write about Petraeus?" Clinton wrote back five minutes later. Moments later, Blumenthal sent Clinton Clemons' post mentioning the off-the-record dinner and discussing the relative political merits of Petraeus, Vice President Joe Biden and Clinton herself. "Clemons... told me more detail about [Petraeus'] attitude and interest," Blumenthal said, adding a couple of nuggets. Within four months someone decided to...

For now, there are 1000s of refugees waiting at the station, with entrances blocked by police.

    In working through some of the 7,000 Hillary Clinton emails released by the State Department yesterday, I came across one curious one sent from aide Huma Abedin to the then-Secretary of State regarding a Koran-burning in the U.S.Here is another intriguing email: https://twitter.com/bhweingarten/status/638734489531871234 It is noteworthy that this message on a sensitive subject — presumably about a meeting between then-Rep. Mike Rogers (R-MI) and Sec. of State Clinton on weapons collections in Libya — would be left unredacted, while many other emails in the Clinton trove are redacted in toto. This may be because news reports around the September 10, 2011 email date indicate...

    This email begs the question: Why did Huma Abedin feel the need to bring the desecration of a Koran in East Lansing, MI to the attention of the Secretary of State? Did Abedin feel that Clinton might be concerned about the news “inciting” attacks in America or abroad? Might she have felt that such a story could be leveraged politically? Was it just something Abedin as a Muslim found personally reprehensible, that she felt her confidant ought to be made aware of? Actions like Koran-burning presumably would have been important to then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, given her stated support...
