  • What Does Made in PRC Mean: Explore The Meaning Behind It

    (snip) "Made in PRC" is an abbreviation for "Made in the People's Republic of China." It's a way of subtly indicating a product's Chinese origin while avoiding direct association with the full country name. China, known for producing both high-quality and low-quality goods, has faced challenges related to its reputation for mass-producing inexpensive products. To counteract negative perceptions and cater to consumer preferences, many Chinese manufacturers have turned to the "Made in PRC" label.

  • Shock Poll On Hispanic Voters Is Bad For Democrats

    Left-wing Pew Research Center has released data that shows an increase of just under five million Hispanic American voters since fall of 2018, a number of whom are ditching the Democratic party. “While Democrats still outpace Republicans in terms of voter registration, a higher number of Latinos voted Republican in the 2022 midterm elections than they did in 2018,” ADN America said of the polling. “While Hispanic voters continued to favor Democrats over Republicans, a higher share of Hispanic voters supported GOP candidates in the 2022 election compared with 2018,” it added. “In November, 60% of Hispanic voters cast ballots...
  • A NEW CONSTITUTION? States' rights groups eye convention to cut out feds

    ATLANTA – What if a supermajority of states could override a federal law or Supreme Court ruling? That’s just one idea being proposed by advocates of a “convention of states” to amend the U.S. Constitution. “The American people are mad and they’re looking for a way to say, ‘No more,’” said Brooke Rollins, president and CEO of the Texas Public Policy Foundation, a conservative think tank. “Our founders, in their brilliance, gave us a tool to do that. And it’s Article V.” Article V of the Constitution allows a minimum of two-thirds of the states to call for a convention...

    As political encores go, former President Nicolas Sarkozy didn’t quite get the warm embrace from his party that many French had expected in his return to public life on Saturday. The hard-charging Gaullist who once made headlines for reviving France’s U.S. ties, helping depose Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi and marrying a former supermodel while in office won a race for leader of France’s main conservative party—but with a margin of victory that was smaller than many had predicted. Sarkozy’s victory as chief of the Union for a Popular Movement, or UMP, was a crucial first step on his road to...

    The Senate yesterday turned back a series of amendments from both parties aimed at substantially altering controversial immigration legislation, but the bill shed supporters as it became mired in procedural hurdles that left backers concerned about its prospects. The legislation faces a make-or-break vote this morning when senators will decide whether to cut off debate and move to a final vote tomorrow. If it does not get the 60 votes necessary, Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.) has said he will pull the bill, all but dashing hopes for any meaningful legislation this year. Top legislative aides in both parties...

    WASHINGTON, June 24 (UPI) -- Legislation perceived as amnesty for illegal immigrants has ignited grass-roots groups throughout the United States, it was reported Sunday. The largest and loudest of the groups, NumbersUSA, reports soaring donations and an 81 percent membership increase since January, the Los Angeles Times said. Groups like NumbersUSA are playing a larger role than ever in the immigration debate, which could come before the Senate again this week for a pass or fail vote on a bill, the Times said. NumbersUSA President Roy Beck said he expects to rally the group's 419,000 activist members with dozens of...

    World Affairs Brief ^ | June 15, 2007 | Joel Skousen.
    There are certain causes that exist where the Powers That Be (PTB) won't take no for an answer. Immigration amnesty (multiple times) is one of them, despite overwhelming public opposition. The globalist fervor to flood this country with illegal immigrants is not just driven by government collusion with big business, hungry for cheap labor. There is another evil agenda at work: a plan to create future cultural conflict that will "demand" an Hegelian solution: A North American integration--a major stepping stone to the New World Order. By the time that crisis fully matures and forces a decision upon us, we...

    BOSTON - U.S. Senator Edward Kennedy said Monday that failing to pass immigration reforms would push illegal immigrants into isolation and create breeding grounds for homegrown terrorists. Kennedy pointed to several European countries where he said alienation and immigration problems has led to terrorist acts. "Just look what happened in Great Britain, with the isolation of the communities," Kennedy said at a meeting of the Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce. "Look what has happened in France. Look what has happened in Germany. Look where the cells are in terms of al-Qaida. They’re all in different communities, which failed to assimilate...

    Lee Rogers, chairman of the Republican Party in Anderson County, S.C., was at the beach last week when his cell phone rang. It was an urgent call from one of Rogers' GOP activists. "He asked me what I was going to do to find somebody to run against Lindsey Graham (next year)," Rogers said. "I explained to the gentleman that's not something I can put together as a single county chairman. That's got to happen with the people." It could be happening. Graham, nearing the end of his first Senate term, has taken plenty of heat before, but perhaps never...

      June 18, 2007Setting the Record Straight: Illegal Immigrants Will Receive Welfare Under Senate Bill by Robert E. Rector WebMemo #1509  In criticizing recent Heritage Foundation research on the cost of low-skill immigration and amnesty, proponents of the Senate immigration legislation (S. 1348), including Administration spokesmen, have falsely claimed that the proposal would not give illegal immigrants access to the U.S. welfare system.[1] While provisions of the Senate bill would delay illegal immigrants' access to welfare for several years, over time nearly all amnesty recipients would be offered legal permanent residence and access to more than 60 federal means-tested welfare...

    "What should the United States do about illegal immigration?" I asked everyone [in Mexico] from street vendors to academics at the venerable National Autonomous University of Mexico. Each time, the respondent would tick off a long list without missing a beat, starting with a flood of vitriol against the proposed wall and the placement of the U.S. National Guard at the border. Then I would ask: "What should Mexico do about illegal immigration?" In every case, there was a pause, followed by the same answer: "It's very complicated." Here's what Mexico has done about illegal immigration: Provided 3-to-1 matching funds...

    When I reported from Mexico last year during the record-setting immigrant marches here in the United States, I conducted my own unscientific poll on the immigration issue among people I met.

    It’s entirely fair to ask why this administration -- or the next -- should expect us to believe it will live up to the promises of border security and enforcement that are being made and will be made in the 2008 campaign. We don’t believe those promises for two reasons. One: if President Bush were sincere about border security, he would have done a lot since 2000, and he hasn’t. And he could do a lot right now, without demanding the Bush-McKennedy bill in trade. Two: if any candidate wants us to believe he is sincere about border security --...

    If The Bipartisan Immigration Reform Bill Now Being Considered By The Senate Is Not Passed, The U.S. Will Be Left With A Status Quo That Is Unacceptable. The current immigration system is broken: Border security and interior enforcement laws need to be improved. Employers do not have the tools they need to verify the work eligibility of their employees with assurance. As many as 12 million illegal workers remain in the shadows. Only around 13 percent of green cards are awarded each year based on employment-related criteria, and far too little emphasis is placed on the skills and attributes necessary...

    If you are having trouble getting through the Capitol switchboard to express your opinion about the Bush-Kennedy shamnesty, there's a special hotline number you might like to try. 1-800-882-2005. (Spanish number) 1-800-417-7666. (English number) Freepers picked up on it this morning. Bryan Preston dialed it earlier today and captured audio of the hotline. He reports: The hotline is paid for by something called the Coalition for Comprehensive Immigration Reform and itÂ’s being blasted to pro-open borders groups all over the country. The hotline gives its callers access to their senators that average Joes donÂ’t have. Here's what the "Coalition for...
