    The Obama Regime Has Been Using An American Foreign Good-Will Program To Unbalance Local U.S. Demographics By Col. Tom Snodgrass (Ret.), Right Side News Refugee Resettlement Program Background The United States’ history of admitting refugees in an organized humanitarian program dates to 1948 when the U.S. Congress enacted the Displaced Persons Act to provide for the admission of 400,000 displaced Europeans in the far-reaching wake of World War II. Later laws provided for the admission of thousands of dissent refugees fleeing the Communist regimes of Hungary, Poland, Yugoslavia, Korea, China, and Cuba. The fall of Saigon to the communists in 1975 immediately...

    WEST PENN TOWNSHIP -- State police in Schuylkill County are searching for the person they believe assaulted a West Penn Township police officer. It happened along Route 309 near Andreas just before 6 p.m. Wednesday. Route 309 in West Penn Township, also known as West Penn Pike, was blocked off and traffic was redirected. Fire trucks and an ambulance were at the scene. "Her shirt is like sliced from--we don't know what it's sliced yet from," said Trooper David Boehm. "The person that we're looking for is a Hispanic male, 6'2" to 6'4", 240 to 260 pounds. He was wearing...

    A Washington state police officer will not face criminal charges after shooting two unarmed black men suspected of trying to steal beer from a supermarket, a prosecutor’s office said on Wednesday. Officer Ryan Donald, a three-year veteran of the police department in the state capital Olympia, told investigators the men had no weapons during the May incident. But one of them tried to pull him to the ground while the other raised his skateboard above his head “as if to strike him” and that he issued a verbal warning before opening fire, the police department said. No charges will be...

    Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump said in November 1999 that, if elected president, he wanted to make Charles Rangel, the Democratic Congressman from New York, the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development. At the time, real estate magnate was considering running for president as a member of the Reform Party. Asked by CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer if he’d “given some thought to a potential Trump Cabinet,” Trump mentioned Rangel as his top choice to lead HUD. “Well, let’s go — like HUD,” Trump said. “I think Charlie Rangel is a terrific guy. He’s a congressman from New York. He has...

    The MSM no longer even tries to hide their bias when polled results in average America don’t match their narratives. Turn up the dials – increase the gaslighting. Two days ago, Investors Business Daily published an extensive poll showing 59% of Americans favored forced deportation if needed in order to gain control of illegal immigration. The latest IBD/TIPP Poll asked 913 adults coast to coast if they “support or oppose mandatory deportation of illegal immigrants in the U.S.” Not surprisingly, 87% of Trump supporters back the proposal. What’s surprising is that 59% of the overall public does as well. Mandatory...

    I don't really care for arguments about the economic benefits of immigration - for the simple reason that culture trumps economics.

'The World Bank reckons that if rich countries allowed their workforce to swell by a mere three per cent by letting in an extra 14 million workers from developing countries between 2001 and 2025, the world would be $356 billion a...

    Hillary Clinton paid to hide the identity of the people running her private email server, Breitbart News has learned. Her attempt to hide details about her server has allowed another faceless company access to her classified email information, while doing little to nothing to secure that information from hackers. Clinton’s private email domain clintonemail.com was initially purchased by Clinton aide Eric Hoteham, who listed the Clintons’ Chappaqua, New York home as the contact address for his purchase. But the domain is actually registered to an Internet company designed to hide the true identity of the people running it. Clintonemail.com is...

A Pembroke Pines police officer went through the drive-through of a local Arby’s around 7 p.m. Tuesday evening, but when the officer pulled up, one employee refused service. “I don’t have the exact quote, but something was said to the effect of ‘We don’t want to serve you because you’re a police officer'” Pembroke Pines Major and Public Information Officer Carlos Bermudez told The Daily Caller News Foundation.

And just yesterday, in my neighboring state of Illinois, police Lt. Charles Joseph Gliniewicz was assassinated by three men, who are still on the run.

Some 17 million Britons are potential beneficiaries of the drug, but they will not be able to use it, because the United Kingdom’s version of Sarah Palin’s death panel — which bears the pleasingly Orwellian name NICE, the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence — says it is too expensive.

In the confines of a 36-foot-wide and 20-foot-high solar-powered dome in a remote location on the island of Hawaii, the six team members will have to live together for 365 days. They will have no face-to-face contact with humans outside of the dome.

The main point to keep in mind is that your op-ed is not intended to elucidate, educate or amuse. These are status pieces meant to strike a pose, signaling that you are a good person. After reading your op-ed, readers should feel the warm sensation of being superior to other people -- those who don't agree with you. The idea is to be in fashion. It's all about attitude, heavy on eye-rolling. (1) Psychoanalyze conservatives as paranoid and...

    HELENA - Montana’s long-standing dollar-limits on campaign contributions may be in jeopardy, as a federal appeals court Tuesday reaffirmed its earlier ruling that the limits must meet new, stricter standards. The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals rejected a request from the state to rehear the case, sending it back to a federal judge in Helena to use the stricter standard to decide whether Montana’s limits are constitutional. An attorney opposing the limits said the ruling means the limits likely will be thrown out by the judge as an unconstitutional restriction on free speech.

State agencies, elected officials and wildlife advocates urged the state to provide the much-needed link in an area where rampant development and highways have fragmented once-continuous habitat. The 165-foot-wide, 200-foot-long overpass near Liberty Canyon Road would connect the Santa Monica Mountains on the south with the Simi Hills and Santa Susana Mountains. The...

    The Chinese economic slowdown, though long anticipated, "appears to have larger-than-previously-envisaged" repercussions in other countries, the IMF said. China's troubles have sent the prices of raw materials such as oil and copper into a freefall, pinching Brazil, Russia and other commodity exporters. The report did not revise the fund's economic forecasts for this year, last updated in July, though it concluded that "downside risks have risen." The IMF expects the global economy to grow 3.3 per cent this year, little-changed from 3.4 per cent in 2014; the U.S. economy to grow 2.5 per cent, versus 2.4 per cent in 2014;...

During the show’s panel discussion, columnist George Will and Arthur Brooks of the American Enterprise Institute in particular showed how GOP bigwigs view their base. Will started the banter by suggesting that the popularity of insurgent GOP candidates was tantamount to “primal scream” psychotherapy where voters are venting their frustrations by backing political newcomers over their more traditional rivals.

    In the same September 1 speech in which Jeb Bush defended gun rights for Americans, he told students at a Miami school that he supports legalizing immigrants who are in our country illegally—i.e., amnesty. In so doing, it never occurred to him that gun rights for Americans and amnesty for illegal immigrants are mutually exclusive. This is because Hispanics support gun control to an even higher degree than whites oppose it—to an even higher degree than the percentage of strictly Republicans who oppose it.
