For over a year now at NoSpeedBumps I have been saying that what needs to be done in Iraq is to move toward an internal withdrawal of US forces on to bases within Iraq. I even started a monthly countdown. Not that these guys read my blog, but it looks like this a central piece [...]

In my last post I quoted Senator Joe Biden who said:
An even bigger problem are illegal drugs “coming up through corrupt Mexico,” he said. “People are driving across that border with tons, tons — hear me — tons of everything from byproducts for methamphetamines, to cocaine, to heroine.”
Commenters complained that the drug problem is driven [...]
Wow, this from a Democrat:
COLUMBIA, S.C. - Sen. Joe Biden, the Senate Foreign Relations Committee’s incoming chairman, wants to get tough with Mexico, calling it an “erstwhile democracy” with a “corrupt system” responsible for illegal immigration and drug problems in the U.S.
Biden, D-Del., was in Columbia on Monday in his first postelection trip to [...]
Welcome to Europe’s Muslim future:
BERLIN, Germany - Germany’s downward spiral in population is no longer reversible, the country’s federal statistics office said Tuesday. The birthrate has dropped so low that immigration numbers cannot compensate.
“The fall in the population can no longer be stopped,” vice-president Walter Rademacher with the Federal Statistics Office said, reported Agence France-Presse.
You can pay big bucks to go see Madonna fake-sing (she lip-syncs) when she’s on stage, or you can listen to Esmee sing for real at her PC on YouTube:
Don’t you love the power of the internet to bypass the gatekeepers to information and culture?
Here is Esmee, in a new video today, singing The [...]
A couple of days ago I quoted from Heather Mac Donald regarding the problems arising from letting millions of low-income Hispanics move to the US. And then I added this:
Scary too, wait until single-parent Hispanic families as a group get fully engaged with our anti-poverty welfare system. The system, when combined with poor and unstable [...]
Half Sigma writes about corporations and labor unions:
Some criticize unions as an interference with the free market, but they forget that big corporations themselves wouldn’t exist were it not for government laws granting special recognition to the corporate structure.
In other words, since corporations are created by special favors granted by the state, then special favors [...]
I am for shutting down illegal immigration in the US, and Colorado Rep Tom Tancredo has been one of the most forceful advocates for doing this. It takes courage to do that as a public figure and then have to put up with all of the hate directed your way.
But here Tancredo goes too far [...]
It is rare to hear honest assessments from mainstream journalists or researchers regarding the problems ahead if the US continues to allow millions of impoverished, uneducated Hispanics to move here. Heather MacDonald is one of the few voices that you will hear and fortunately she also happens to write really well. So what is coming [...]
Consider eight major issues of recent years. See if you can spot any contorted logic within each statement.
1) Abortion should be allowed up until a fetus reaches the point where medical technology of 1973 can keep it alive outside of a mother’s body.
2) Racial discrimination by institutions is abhorrent but it is appropriate to use [...]
The CIA World Factbook lists Mauritania as being 100% Muslim (see map too). But yesterday they held elections:
NOUAKCHOTT (AFP) - Voters in Mauritania were going to the polls to choose parliamentary and local government representatives in the Islamic republic’s first elections since the end of 21 years of autocratic rule in a bloodless coup last [...]
