    If, a handful of years into the future, the number of undocumented immigrants in the United States has fallen sharply or zeroed out, the president will deserve all the credit. Mexico’s president, that is. Texas Gov. Rick Perry, no stranger to the tough debate over the nation’s immigration laws, thinks recent legislation passed by Mexico’s Congress, a major priority of President Enrique Pena Nieto, may have set in motion a reversal of the flow of undocumented immigrants northward. In a short time, Perry said in an interview Saturday, undocumented immigrants may be streaming back over the U.S.-Mexico border, headed for...

    There are many strange elements in the current debate over illegal immigration, but none stranger than the mostly ignored role of Mexico. Are millions of Mexican citizens still trying to cross the U.S. border illegally because there is dismal economic growth and a shortage of jobs in Mexico? Not anymore. In terms of the economy, Mexico has rarely done better, and the United State rarely worse. The Mexican unemployment rate is currently below 5 percent. North of the border it remains stuck at over 7 percent for the 53rd consecutive month of the Obama presidency. The American gross domestic product...

    Amount of taxpayer funding given to GM and GMAC comes to a staggering $50.4 billion.Two weeks ago, General Motors Co. (GM) announced that they were investing $691 million in Mexico, and while they acknowledged the expansion would bring many new jobs south of the border, they would not disclose the actual figure. The Detroit News reported: “The Detroit-based automaker said it will spend $349 million for the new transmission plant in Silao; $131 million to expand its San Luis Potosi Complex transmission plant and to build lighter and smoother transmissions with better fuel economy, and $211 million to expand its...

    Before I tell you of all the new developments at government motors, I’d like to inform you of the true cost of the GM bailout. The “official” tally is ten billion, but the actual total cost to taxpayers is over 50 billion dollars. GM has a market cap (Net worth) of 28 billion. The paybacks we received from GM are the true, but kind. Read this for the true costs.

    For several years the left and their media minions have claimed that by bailing out Chrysler and General Motors, President Obama saved Detroit. On Friday, the perilously liberal schlockumentarian Michael Moore debunked this in an article at the Huffington Post astonishingly saying, "No, he didn't." "Last week, I said on the HuffPost Live webcast that we had all better start practicing how to say 'President Romney' because, living in Michigan, I can tell you that there's trouble here on the two peninsulas and it's not just because Romney is a native son or that we like to watch kids from...
