Immigration Checkpoints In Mexico Not So Casual As In Obama's America

There's little doubt that something is very wrong with our Federal government and its inability, and what's worse, it's lack of desire to control our borders, and that means southern, northern, eastern, western, on foot, or in planes, trains, or automobiles, tanks or even tuxedos. The apathy at the top is treasonous. The ill will that we as a sovereign people have suffered at the wit of fellow citizens and foreign invaders alike whenever even broaching the subject is not even conceivable anywhere else in the world, until recently as Europe has continued to allow its Muslim problem fester and...

The Undeserved George Bush Reputation Nothing But Obamaspeak

ET'S TAKE ANOTHER GLANCE at the sad facts, shall we? Now that President Obama is visibly slipping on everything from stages from which he will speak to his own tongue with which he will speak, the public deserves to know how to whack past the weeds to get at those pesky facts that should shine light on the truth of financial matters once again. Do we not recall that on January 3, 2007, jubilant and sassy Democrats rolled into The House of Representatives and the Senate at the very start of the 110th Congress quite proud of themselves, for now...


Ambiguous Traces Of Race

ATELINE JULY 17, 2003. Linda Chavez's article deserves a spot here. Her new book: An Unlikely Conservative is rising up the charts, and pleasures me, and frankly I'm happy to report, she's no David Horowitz, whose flipside conservatism at first thrilled me, but now chastens me, as I realize to what lengths he wishes to mimic the opposition, merely to win a political football game.

But back to the article at hand—how did Chavez, a former liberal,...


Bernanke Cast Doubts On Administration's Jobs Claims

eclining joblessness figures, sprouting lately from the current administration like so many spring crocuses, have left even the Chairman of the Federal Reserve, Ben Bernanke, puzzled over numbers that are "out of sync" with the overall economy. "The combination of relatively modest GDP growth with the more substantial improvement in the labor market over the past year is something of a puzzle," Bernanke admitted to the National Association for Business Economics earlier this week. Bernanke then proceeded to explain why unemployment figures from the administration seem so out of step with the reality most folks are experiencing. He started with...


UnpaId Student Loans Top One Trillion Dollars

HE AMOUNT AMERICANS OWE on student loans is far higher than earlier estimates and could lead some consumers to postpone buying homes, potentially slowing the housing recovery, U.S. officials said Wednesday. Total student debt outstanding appears to have surpassed $1 trillion late last year, said officials at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, a federal agency created in the wake of the financial crisis. That would be roughly 16% higher than an estimate earlier this year by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. The new figure—released Wednesday at a banking conference in Austin, Texas—is a preliminary finding from a study...
