    Billionaire investor and political activist George Soros comments on the Trump administration in a speech at the World Economic Forum's annual meeting in Davos. Soros declared the Trump phenomenon will "disappear" in 2020, calling his presidency a "danger to the world." Soros said his "goal" is to "reestablish a functioning two-party system" in the United States. "Clearly, I consider the Trump administration a danger to the world," Soros said at a World Economic Forum event. "But I regard it as a purely temporary phenomenon that will disappear in 2020, or even sooner." "My personal goal in the United States is...

  • John Roberts Initially Sided With Trump In The Census Citizenship Question — Then Changed His Vote

    It wouldn’t be the first time he’d — allegedly — joined with the conservatives in a case boiling with political repercussions only to think better of it and swing around to the liberal position. Everyone’s heard the stories by now about Roberts supposedly wimping out in the ObamaCare ruling seven years ago, initially agreeing with Scalia, Kennedy, Thomas, and Alito that the individual mandate was unconstitutional and then getting cold feet. Result: A tortured and dubious majority opinion upholding the constitutionality of the mandate as a tax. Rumors swirled within days of the decision that Roberts had switched his...

    Justice John Roberts cast the deciding vote against President Donald Trump's attempt to add a citizenship question to the 2020 census, but only after changing his position behind the scenes, sources familiar with the private Supreme Court deliberations tell CNN. The case was fraught with political consequences. Democrats and civil rights advocates claimed the query would discourage responses to the decennial questionnaire from new immigrants and minorities and affect the balance of power nationwide. Roberts' action recalled his dramatic switch in the 2012 case that saved President Barack Obama's Affordable Care Act. Once again, the chief, an appointee of President...
  • Trump Wants Citizenship Data Released But States Haven't Asked Census For That

    After its failed attempt to add a citizenship question to the 2020 census, the Trump administration has forged ahead with ordering the Census Bureau to use government records to produce data about the U.S. citizenship status of every person living in the country. In July, the bureau quietly filed a regulatory document confirming that Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross — who oversees the federal government's largest statistical agency — had directed it "to produce Citizenship Voting Age Population" information "that states may use in redistricting."Last December, the bureau announced it was formally collecting feedback from state redistricting officials on the type of...

    Whites tend to vote Republican, while nonwhites tend to vote Democrat. This proved true in the 2016 election, when Trump carried white voters by 20 percent, while Hillary Clinton won 74 percent of nonwhite voters. With the number of Latinos living in the United States nearly doubling since 2000, it is not difficult to see why Texas could soon follow California, Colorado, and Nevada into the Democratic camp in the next 20 years. Using the 2000 census and the 2010 census along with 2018 data, the electoral reality becomes more clear. The population of those under 18 will be majority...
  • 2020 Census 'listers’ have to verify millions of addresses. Look for them in your neighborhood.

    Starting next week and continuing into October, you might see people carrying laptops walking through your neighborhood and knocking on doors. They’re what the Census Bureau calls “listers” — census workers charged with making sure the bureau has a complete list of all addresses as it prepares for its massive population count next year. It’s the first major field operation of the 2020 Census. Starting next Monday, Aug. 19, listers will begin verifying the remaining 35% of addresses that need double-checking, using maps and a list of known addresses on a laptop. Mostly, they will be checking to see whether...

    The Census Bureau is hiring — and officials plan to employ more than 500,000 part-time and temporary workers across the country. Between Westmoreland and Allegheny counties, officials expect to field about 12,000 applications, census spokesperson Susan Licate said. “The hiring needs within each county vary and are ongoing,” she said. “For example, to properly staff Westmoreland County, we estimate reviewing nearly 3,000 applications so as to identify the right candidates for the positions. Allegheny County, 9,000 applications.” According to the census website, workers in Westmoreland County will make $16 per hour, while Allegheny County workers will make $18.50. Available positions...

    The state of Alabama is suing the federal government over how it counts people in the census, claiming it will lose a seat in Congress because it has a low illegal-alien population. The lawsuit, filed May 21, 2018, in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Alabama, is garnering attention now after two federal judges permanently enjoined the Trump administration from adding a citizenship question to the 2020 census earlier this month. The dual rulings came after the Supreme Court ruled June 27 in Department of Commerce v. New York that the citizenship question couldn’t be included in the...

    …….When the national debate over illegal immigration and border security was heating up back in 2005 and 2006 in response to amnesty proposals in Congress, I was roundly criticized for suggesting the opposition to amnesty was rooted in opposition to secure borders. I was attacked by some prominent leaders of the Republican Party for saying that the U.S. Chamber of Commerce saw illegal aliens as cheap labor and the Democrat Party saw them as future Democratic voters. I take no pleasure in observing in 2019 that Democratic leaders in Congress are aggressively advocating open borders as a path to a...

    Whether by accident or by design, President Trump has alighted upon the exact right solution for ascertaining the truest enumeration of American citizens. Not only that, but his workaround solution should have been done regardless of the recent opinion by the Supreme Court. That is, even if the Court had found that the administration could include the citizenship question in the census, Trump should still have directed his agencies, especially the Social Security Administration, to have their computer programmers write simple little programs to count up the people on their databases by citizen and all other categories. Americans who care...

    The hard left in America will stop at nothing to reshuffle all that we know to be true about America and the values we hold dear. The Betsy Ross flag, so celebrated as a symbol of freedom by Americans, is now racist.  Our brave and overworked agents on the southern border aren’t honored for saving the lives of men, women and children abandoned by human smugglers, but are accused of running ‘concentration camps.’  And now the most basic part of our national identity – citizenship – is under attack.The evidence is mounting that Democrats want to reshape what “American” means....

    As many as 1 in 5 seats in the House of Representatives may be competitive next year as population shifts and partisan realignment conspire to create one of the most widespread battlefields in generations. Democrats will find themselves on defense in dozens of districts the party captured in 2018, including 31 districts President Trump won in 2016. Already, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has identified 36 members for its Frontline program, which protects endangered incumbents. Republicans, too, will have to defend districts in unexpected areas, seats that Democrats narrowly lost in 2018. Districts that have not been targets for years...

    Are we a nation of laws or a nation of men? Previously, the most radically leftist federal judges had failed this test on cases pertaining to the Trump administration. Now the highest court in the land has joined them.The fight over whether the simple question, “Is this person a citizen of the United States?” could appear on the 2020 U.S. census already implicated major issues of public policy, including immigration, national sovereignty, and voting rights. But the Supreme Court’s recent ruling on the matter has now transcended these issues to challenge the rule of law itself, once again raising...

    The democrats encourage aliens to illegally enter the U.S. by inviting them to come in, bring women and children, don't worry about the dangers of illegally crossing borders, dangerous rivers, deserts, etc., it's all worth it to reach the land of milk and honey. They promise them jobs, welfare, foodstamps, free medical care, subsidized housing, free education and promise them free legal help and advice to ward off deportation. They harbor them in sanctuary cities where state and local governments will protect them from law enforcement and from the federal immigration authorities, even if they commit crimes. And the democrats...

    Chief Justice Roberts, joined by the four liberal justices (Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Stephen Breyer, Elena Kagan, and Sonia Sotomayor), declared that “the evidence tells a story that does not match the explanation the Secretary gave for his decision.” The “sole stated reason” for adding the citizenship question to the census, he observed, “seems to have been contrived.” Federal agencies must “offer genuine justifications for important decisions, reasons that can be scrutinized by courts and the interested public.” Otherwise, judicial review becomes “an empty ritual.” In dissent, Justice Clarence Thomas, joined by Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh, correctly called the...

    You’ve probably heard a lot overnight about President Trump backing down on trying to get a citizenship question on the census questionnaire next year.Perhaps you too were surprised that this president who takes on even meaningless slights or disagreements on Twitter would give up so easily. He didn’t.The rest of the day’s story is somewhat different: Trump says he’s devised another path to the same information, which isn’t certain to be tied up for months with obstructionist lawsuits. And Attorney General William Barr is vocally backing him up. Makes it less of a backdown in his eyes.“Today,” Trump declared...
