The right way to criticize the H1-B Visa program
The H1-B Visa program is a lightning rod. Conceptually it’s a great idea: Find a way to bring productive, skilled people into the United States to boost our economy. In practice it’s become a mess of big government micromanagement, which has made it an easy target for anti-immigration critics. Here’s how we need to fix H1-B, and mollify the (somewhat legitimate) fears of those in | Read More »
On H1B Visas: Scott Walker Will Fight For American Workers, Senators Cruz and Rubio Not So Much.
One of the few intelligent and worthwhile things that John Maynard Keynes contributed to society is the following quote “When my information changes, I alter my conclusions. What do you do, sir?” Governor Scott Walker’s information has recently changed. Remember that Governor Walker had the guts to back down the Progressive Establishment in The Democratic Party of Wisconsin. It thus comes as no surprise that | Read More »

Mo Brooks Stops The Outsourcing of Military Slots To Illegal Aliens In The NDAA
For most of its history, Rome’s military was the envy of the ancient world. But during the decline, the makeup of the once mighty legions began to change. Unable to recruit enough soldiers from the Roman citizenry, emperors like Diocletian and Constantine began hiring foreign mercenaries to prop up their armies. The ranks of the legions eventually swelled with Germanic Goths and other barbarians, so | Read More »
From The Nook of RMJ: Flashback To The Future?
Extrapolation, when based on solid and unimpeachable mathematical data, can often fail to effectively model a reality that could occur in the future. The practice gets even more tenuous when applied to qualitative samplings of political events, moral currents and societal Zeitgeist. Dan Simmons, a masterful novelist whose works have stood out phenomenally well in genres such as Science Fiction, Horror, Historical Fiction and Hard-boiled | Read More »
Scott Walker Flip Flops on Immigration Stance?
Is Governor Walker for amnesty, securing the border, a pathway to citizenship, or is he against it? The answer is clearly yes. Confused? So am I. It was only a few weeks ago that the Presidential Candidate in waiting was on Fox News Sunday emphatically stating his new firm position on immigration and border security. “My view has changed. I’m flat out saying it, candidates | Read More »
Disaffected Conservatives and Political MGTOW On The Right
If you have read the Conservative Blogs for a number of years, then you’ve undoubtedly read many a post on Ace of Spades HQ. If you haven’t yet, I can still recommend most of it as satisfactory articulation of why we fight. And yet the cynicism creeps in even there. In reaction to Glenn Beck announcing that he was done with the GOP, Ace offered | Read More »

Jeb Bush and CPAC: how he answered some questions…
I suspect that these answers (via the Daily Signal) by Jeb Bush on immigration and Common Core questions will not much move the needle, one way or the other. Jeb Bush is clearly a capable public speaker… but. He has some unpopular opinions on the subject, and that is the meat of it. Whether that hurts Jeb Bush in the primary any more than it | Read More »
Illegal aliens to receive retroactive EITC refunds
This is wonderful. Via The Washington Times.The shot: IRS Commissioner John Koskinen told Congress on Wednesday that even illegal immigrants who didn’t pay taxes will be able to claim back-refunds once they get Social Security numbers under President Obama’s temporary deportation amnesty. The revelation — which contradicts what he told Congress last week — comes as lawmakers also raised concerns Mr. Obama’s amnesty could open | Read More »
Jeb Bush: If you like your borders you can keep your borders
According to the AP, the Democrats are planning on defeating the Jeb Bush juggernaut by painting him as the second third coming of Mitt Romney: Mitt Romney opposed the government’s rescue of U.S. automakers. So did Jeb Bush. Both worked in finance and backed the Wall Street bailout. Both are advocates of tax cuts that Democrats contend only benefit the wealthy and big business. While | Read More »
Green Card Harry and The EB-5 Program
World News Videos | ABC World News represents everything that Las Vegas, Nevada symbolizes to an absolute, pristine perfection. He is loud, tacky, garish, disingenuous, malicious, mobbed-up, preys on his country like an intestinal parasite, is hateful to those with whom he disagrees and believes he is utterly exempt from the law. He is VEGAS, BABY!!!! If you scratch his back, he’ll be your sugar | Read More »
Just in Case You Did not Know, You Were Lied to About Executive Amnesty
So back at the end of 2014, a lot of people pooh poohed the idea that the fight over executive amnesty would have to happen then or not at all. Many so-called “reasonable Republicans” insisted that this was the wrong time to hold the GOP’s feet to the fire. “Wait until next year,” they said. “Wait until the GOP actually has control of both chambers. | Read More »
Senator Jeff Sessions Is the Winter Soldier of the American Working Class
So Congress has passed a government funding measure that has pegged the national cynicism meter to the red and made us all feel like government represents itself at our expense. This so-called “Cromnibus” allocates $1.1T to avoiding a government shutdown. In the process, this 1,603 page legislation funds a lot of things that a lot of people do not like. One thing that particularly bothers | Read More »
Now Or Later: Why Not Wait to Fight Over Amnesty?
This is, perhaps, the simplest and most easily understood argument against acting now to stop the President. Come January, the House of Representatives and the Senate will both be held by the Republican Party. It will, therefore, improve their leverage against the President and his unconstitutional amnesty. So we should wait. Except . . . well . . . except there are some fundamental problems | Read More »

The Republicans now have their largest majorities in Congress since World War II. has been defeated in a runoff in Louisiana. Former Louisiana Governor Edwin Edwards went down to defeat too.
