    1. A Hispanic American friend who speaks perfect English was considered for a job in IT. She was eminently qualified. But many of her co-workers are in India and speak English with a heavy accent, if at all. So a person who could communicate with them in their native language as well as English is "more qualified". 2. When a recruiter or IT management does not speak English and the American applicant is put at a disadvantage to the foreign language applicant, what is it called? This is increasingly becoming an issue. It used to be that the foreigner was...

    MUELLER AT THE BAT....(there is no joy in Swampville) The Outlook wasn't brilliant for the Swampville nine that day: The score stood four to two, with but one inning more to play. And then when Clapper died at first, and Brennan did the same, A sickly silence fell upon the patrons of the game. A straggling few got up to go in deep despair. The rest Clung to that hope which springs eternal in the human breast; They thought, if only Mueller could get but a whack at that - We'd put up even money, now, with Mueller at the...

    This discussion should illustrate why it is not possible to decide legal issues on what might be best under a given circumstance. Even in industry the Board of Directors are somewhat limited by rules and regulations and cannot always do what is expedient or even what is dictated by common sense. It seems that a common sense solution would be to build a wall on the southern border since the current provisions have resulted in overwhelming the boarder policing efforts. As a result, millions of illegal aliens are free to enter the country never again to be apprehended. But Congress...
  • This is how much Nancy Reagan hated Barbara Bush

    First lady Nancy Reagan — who was no fan of Barbara Bush — personally removed Vice President George H.W. Bush and his wife from the guest list for the 1985 royal visit by Prince Charles and Lady Diana, according to a new book. USA Today’s DC bureau chief Susan Page offers the tidbit in her upcoming “The Matriarch: Barbara Bush and the Making of an American Dynasty,” according to Axios, which obtained an advance copy. A draft of the guest list for the Nov. 9, 1985, dinner, one of the biggest social events of the Reagan presidency, shows the Bush...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her chief of staff have been removed from the board of the Justice Democrats PAC, according to a report. The Democrat from New York and Saikat Chakrabarti, who was her campaign chairman, were de-listed last Friday, the Daily Caller reported on Monday, citing documents from the Washington, DC, Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs. The action was taken because the two never told the Federal Election Commission that they controlled the PAC while it was simultaneously supporting her primary campaign, the report said. The two joined the board in December 2017 and continued to hold “legal...

  • Replacement Migration: Is It a Solution to Declining and Ageing Populations? (Vanity)

    03/20/2019 7:21:18 PM PDT · by TigerClaws · 53 replies
    United Nations projections indicate that over the next 50 years, the populations of virtually all countries of Europe as well as Japan will face population decline and population ageing. The new challenges of declining and ageing populations will require comprehensive reassessments of many established policies and programmes, including those relating to international migration. Focusing on these two striking and critical population trends, the report considers replacement migration for eight low-fertility countries (France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Republic of Korea, Russian Federation, United Kingdom and United States) and two regions (Europe and the European Union). Replacement migration refers to the international migration...
  • George W. Bush Center: ‘America’s Story Is an Immigrant Story’

    here are no Americans in America and no history of America — just immigrants and their “story,” says a new video by former President George W. Bush’s Bush Center. “America’s story is an immigrant story,” says the video. “Now as before, American is a nation of immigrants,” says the video which refers to 280 million Americans — including many who voted for George W. Bush in 2000 — merely as an unnamed blob of “population,” “labor force,” “workers,” and even “natives.” American would be weak without immigrants, the video argues, as it declares that “immigrants make America strong.”

    Meghan McCain attacked “Aunt Becky’s husband” for dissing Arizona State University in the sweeping college bribery scam. The daughter of late Arizona Sen.

    Hypocrisy check--compare and contrast this-- The republicans created a resolution condemning republican Steve King in January-- 1. The resolution specifically singled out King. 2. The resolution only mentioned white supremacy and white nationalism no other forms of bigotry. 3. Republicans voted to exclude King from all committees. Contrast that to the dems house resolution issued today- 1. Omar not mentioned, 2. Several forms of bigotry mentioned, and 3. Omar will keep her foreign affairs committee seat.

    Monday on MSNBC’s “Live,” Breitbart News’ senior editor-at-large Joel Pollak discussed President Donald Trump’s plan for an executive order “requiring colleges and universities to support free speech if they want federal research dollars.” When asked if government intervention can change cultural problems on campuses, Pollack said, “I think the real answers are yes and no. So yes insofar as universities that have these speech codes, especially public universities, really shouldn’t have them—they’re arguably anti-constitutional. And as federal taxpayers, we should not want our money going to universities that do this kind of thing, especially if they are public universities. So...

    Several schools are remaining silent on the effectiveness of their LGBTQ-inspired attempts to shift pronoun customs on campus. Cornell University, Bryn Mawr College and the University of California, Davis are among the growing number of colleges in the United States instructing their students on using each others’ preferred pronouns. Each of the three schools suggests that students ask each other what their preferred pronouns are. The schools educate students on various types of alternative pronouns, such as “zie” and “hir.” On Cornell’s Gender Inclusive Pronouns page, part of the school’s Diversity and Inclusion website, students are instructed that it is...

    CNN)Sen. Lindsey Graham joked about the rocky start to his relationship with President Donald Trump in a speech Thursday. "So President Trump and I did not start off well," the South Carolina Republican said at the Conservative Political Action Conference just outside Washington. "I remember being there the night he got elected and he said, 'Hey, Lindsey, I don't have your phone number,' and I said, 'There's a reason for that.' " Graham was a primary opponent of Trump's in 2016 and one of Trump's harshest critics within the GOP leading up to, and immediately after, the 2016 election.

    Former Vice President Joe Biden said Tuesday his family voted in support of another run for president in 2020. “From being pushed, prodded by my son Hunter, and my wife Jill, and my daughter, we just had a family meeting with all the grandkids too, and there is a consensus that they, the most important people in my life, want me to run,” Biden said. Biden discussed a possible run for president during a four-hour conversation with historian Jon Meacham on Wednesday. He said that his children and grandchildren were not “naive” about facing public campaign scrutiny.

    Let me begin by predicting that Trump will finish a wall of protection along the southern border, just not in this term in office. I predict that Trump will not only win in 20/20 but voters will bring in with him congressmen who will support the President’s policies. It’s going to be a swamp clean up like this disaster of a Congress never happened. Trump will eventually win as usual. Some of you, perhaps most of you were not pleased with my article predicting that Trump will temporarily be prevented from finishing the wall in his first term. Some of...

    The seminal case on executive authority exercised in a declared national emergency is the case in which President Nixon ordered that the steel industry be nationalized. Youngstown Sheet Tube Co v. Sawyer Sawyer v. Youngstown Sheet Tube Co, 343 U.S. 579, 72 S.Ct. 863, 96 L.Ed. 1153, 26 A.L.R.2d 1378 (1952) The defense asserted was that the President’s order amounted to lawmaking, a legislative function which the Constitution has expressly confided to the Congress and not to the President. President Truman claimed he was acting in a national emergency as the Commander and Chief. It is settled law that the...

    A well-funded and subversive leftist movement of teachers in the United States threatens to tilt the political balance nationwide in the direction of Democrats across the country as Republicans barely hang on in key states that they need to hold for President Donald Trump to win re-election and for Republicans to have a shot at retaking the House and holding onto their Senate majority. This teachers union effort, called #RedforEd, has its roots in the very same socialism that President Trump vowed in his 2019 State of the Union address to stop, and it began in its current form in...
