  • PROGRESSIVE “THOUGHT-BLOCKERS”: INCOME INEQUALITY

    Front Page Mag ^ | 2/10/2016 | Bruce Thornton
    An ideological construct that exploits envy and resentment for political advantage. Throughout this primary season, Hillary Clinton and self-proclaimed socialist Bernie Sanders have both been flogging the “crisis” of “income inequality,” which is “at the center of their campaigns,” according to CNN. Both have scourged the “greed” of the “1%,” called for higher taxes on the “rich,” and promised to expand and multiply government programs to rectify this injustice. Yet like other slogans progressives rely on, the idea of “income inequality” is an ideological construct, a statistical artifact that exploits envy and resentment for political advantage. The first problem with...
  • Top DHS official shows favoritism to wealthy, Dem-connected immigrants: report

    The No. 2 official at the Homeland Security Department meddled in three high-profile immigration cases, giving special treatment to applications from wealthy and well-connected immigrants after calls from major Democrats despite the objections of career employees, the departments inspector general concluded in a report Tuesday. Alejandro Mayorkas, who was elevated from head of the departments legal immigration agency to be deputy secretary while the investigation was ongoing, also angered many of his colleagues by getting involved in the cases, and created an appearance of favoritism and special access for the wealthy immigrants, the inspector general concluded. Inspector General John Roth...

    Some of the richest people in the world gathered in Davos, Switzerland yet again this week for the World Economic Forum, but the topics under discussion quickly veered away from the normal program as representatives of many nations grappled with the Syrian refugee crisis. We shouldn’t be terribly surprised, since you can’t mention Europe these days without the subject of the mayhem being caused by the flood of migrants coming up. As you might expect, there were two distinctly different camps engaged in the debate, with some referring to the new Syrian and Iraqi settlers as an economic opportunity, while...

    The United Bank of Switzerland, which is one of the world's largest banks and gold traders, called in its January 2016 Investment Report entitled 'The Future of Europe that Europe should double the number of "migrants" into its borders in order to keep up with demand for "qualified workers"': To match the US labor growth rate, the EU needs 1.8m additional immigrants (of working age) annually for the next 10 years, for example. This is substantially higher than the level of net immigration into the EU before the global financial crisis, and far above the net annual average of 0.6–0.7m...

Police were aware that a large group of young men groped a string of teenage girls at the We Are Sthm music festival in Stockholm in both 2014 and 2015, while publically describing the atmosphere as being calm, Swedish media are reporting.

    ON New Year’s Eve, in the shadow of Cologne’s cathedral, crowds of North African and Middle Eastern men accosted women out for the night’s festivities. They surrounded them, groped them, robbed them. Two women were reportedly raped. Though there were similar incidents from Hamburg to Helsinki, the authorities at first played down the assaults, lest they prove inconvenient for Angela Merkel’s policy of mass asylum for refugees. That delay has now cost Cologne’s police chief his job. But the German government still seems more concerned about policing restless natives — most recently through a deal with Facebook and Google to...

    Always on the prowl for opportunities to grant illegal immigrants reprieve, the Obama administration is capitalizing on the recent floods to reward undocumented aliens in the affected regions with a special “severe weather immigration relief.” The measure was recently announced by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) agency—U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS)—that oversees lawful immigration to the United States. It appears that in the last few years USCIS has been preoccupied with shielding illegal aliens who may not be candidates for the president’s broader executive amnesty initiatives from deportation.

What could go wrong? The HomeReady program is offered through Fannie Mae, which is now controlled by Obama's old Congressional Black Caucus pal Mel Watt. It replaces the bankrupted mortgage giant's notorious old subprime program, MyCommunityMortgage. In case renaming the subprime product fails to fool anybody, the affordable-housing geniuses in the administration have re-termed "subprime," a dirty word since the mortgage bust, "alternative."

    Hundreds of asylum-seekers entering Norway were discovered to have images of ‘executions’ and ‘severed heads’ on their mobile phones. The revelation comes amid heightened fears that ISIS is exploiting the migrant crisis to smuggle fighters into Europe, following last month’s attacks in Paris. Police admitted that the ‘explosion’ of refugees crossing into the country over the summer and in recent months meant that security checks were less thorough than required, and weren’t checking the background of those entering the country.

    A group of illegal immigrants is suing the state of Oregon to overturn a voter-approved initiative that denied them driver's licenses. The lawsuit, brought by five illegal immigrants, comes after Oregonians passed Measure 88 last year with a strong two-thirds majority. Thirty-five of Oregon's 36 counties voted against licenses for undocumented residents, as did every congressional district in the state, most of which are represented by Democrats. But the lawsuit alleges Measure 88 is unconstitutional because it "arbitrarily" denies driving privileges based on membership in a "disfavored minority group." It alleges Oregon voters were motivated by "animus toward persons from...

    G.K. Chesterton wrote that “the modern world is full of the old Christian virtues gone mad.

The “modern world” in this case is made up of the European elites, the Obama administration and Christian clerics who follow their lead. The virtue gone mad is compassion. What Chesterton probably had in mind when he wrote about “mad” virtues was Aristotle’s doctrine of the mean (which was later adopted by Aquinas). According...

    When my newlywed wife and I took a bus from Istanbul to Munich in 1972, we were surprised to see that almost all of our fellow travelers were Turkish workmen. We discovered that Germans were looking for cheap labor, and the Turks were filling these spots. We were young, naïve, and liberal, and we felt that the Germans were doing a good thing. We didn’t stop to think how these Muslim fundamentalists would fit in with modern Munich. This was a couple of months before the Palestinians massacred the Israeli Olympic team. The workers on our bus were not Palestinians....

    It was apparently a race to see who was going to do this first. After a number of governors have said, not only no but hell no to more Syrian “refugees” coming into their states, senators are working at putting such a ban – or at least a “pause” – in place on a national level. Ted Cruz fired off a letter to the DHS already this week advising a hold and he told CNN today that he wanted to get a bill put in motion. No sooner had he done that than Rand Paul came out and said he...

    Transcript excerpt by Sarah Angelopoulos on facebook: “ISIS is the only insurgency in human history to hold territories in multiple nations and multiple continents. They hold territory in Iraq and in Syria larger than the territory of the United Kingdom. And after Boko Haram was accepted into their fold, all Boko Haram territory in Nigeria falls under the caliphate of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the head of ISIS. This is a threat the likes of which we have never before seen and is much, much, more dangerous than Al Qaeda ever was. We have an administration that for seven years has...

    I wonder if Hillary Clinton is still sticking by her call, made in September, to admit tens of thousands of Syrian “refugees” into the United States with all due haste. Her former boss, Barack Obama, has still been holding to some slightly more modest numbers in the range of ten thousand. Neither of those plans may even come close to appeasing some elements of their base, such as one writer at The Atlantic who tosses all those pesky numbers out the window and proclaims that we should just take in all of them. Yes… all of them.What could possibly...

    Residents who criticize behavior of asylum seekers labeled "Nazis" Residents in the German town of Ellwangen are reporting that thousands of migrants who recently arrived are defecating on people’s gardens, staging riots in church and stealing from local stores, while police in the area struggle to cope with the disorder. Ellwangen, which has a population of around 23,500 and a strong Catholic community, was recently inundated with 4,500 asylum seekers who are staying in the old army barracks on the edge of town. The original plan was to house just 500 immigrants, but this quickly ballooned to ten times that...

    A group of North African migrants living in a tent city in Stockholm have been found guilty of brutally gang-raping a 23-year-old woman in yet another example of how Europe’s open border madness is exacerbating the sexual abuse of women. The attack, which took place two months ago on the island of Södermalm, began when the migrants approached the young woman, who was crying, and attempted to console her. The men took the woman to a viewpoint overlooking the city and all appeared to be calm before one of them, “gripped her neck, ripped her clothes off and raped her,”...

    Technology companies across the country are replacing American employees and “transferring” their knowledge to foreign guest workers, according to Sara Blackwell, an attorney for Disney employees replaced by foreign workers, and Leo Perrero, a former Disney employee. “Right now all of the technology jobs, 90 percent of them are being filtered to H-1B visa holders here and then off-shoring to other countries. Knowledge transfer is what we’re doing,” Blackwell said during an interview with SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily. Blackwell argued that technology is the future but that Americans are not the ones getting those coveted tech jobs. “Twenty-six percent right...

    Presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (S-Vt) told voters that he will “bring an end to the Islamophobia that has stained our country. Americans’ fear of terrorism is excessive. Muslims in this country aren’t massacring people. There is no cause for anyone to be apprehensive or mistrustful toward them. Suppressing such irrational fears will be a major emphasis in my administration.” The possibility that fear of Muslim immigrants might be warranted escaped Sanders’ purview. For example, since opening its borders to a surge of Muslim immigration, Sweden has experienced a 1400% increase in rapes and now ranks second in the world...

    Berlin's Zoological Gardens looks set to get two new pandas to replace the much-loved Bao Bao, one of the world's oldest male giant pandas, who died in 2012 aged 32. Merkel announced on Thursday that both China and Germany had opened talks to bring two new black and white bears to Germany. She met Chinese Premier Li Keqiang as part of her official visit to China. Describing the two countries fondness for the giant bears, she said: "This is a very special piece of China that will please a lot of people in Germany."
