Study: Immigrants Use 41% More in Welfare Benefits Than U.S. Born Recipients

Study: Immigrants Use 41% More in Welfare Benefits Than U.S. Born Recipients

-By Warner Todd Huston

A new study on the use of welfare benefits by illegal and legal immigrants in the U.S. finds that households headed by immigrants use an average of $6,200 in benefits annually, fully 41 percent higher than the rate used by native born welfare recipients.

This study comes on the heels of another study finding that 51 percent of immigrant households are signed up for at least one welfare program.

“Immigrants are such heavy users of welfare not because they don’t work, but because, on average, they have little education and thus earn low wages,” said Mark Krikorian, executive director of the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS). “If we continue to permit large numbers of less-educated people to move here from abroad, we have to accept that there will be huge and ongoing costs to taxpayers.”

The study, based on the Census Bureau’s 2012 Survey of Income and Program Participation (SIPP), notes that the higher use of welfare benefits because by and large the current wave of immigrants are less educated and have fewer needed job skills and are therefore more apt to apply for welfare benefits.

Few Other Retailers Joining Target With Pro-Transgender Bathroom Policy

Few Other Retailers Joining Target With Pro-Transgender Bathroom Policy

-By Warner Todd Huston

Target’s unpopular decision to force its customer base of mothers and children into mixed-sex bathrooms and changing rooms is creating a huge economic opportunity for other firms — but none have announced plans to exploit the opportunity, according to a survey of press aides and marketing experts.

Still, as retail giant Target continues to stand behind its transgender-friendly bathroom policy allowing shoppers and employees who claim to be transgender choose whatever bathroom they want to use at any given time, few other large retailers are standing with Target and announcing their own such policies.

Some few have announced their own transgender bathroom policies if perhaps informally, including Barnes & Noble booksellers, Hudson’s Bay Co. department stores (owner of Lord & Taylor and Saks Fifth Avenue), and perhaps unsurprisingly the liberal Starbucks coffee company.

As USA Today reported, Starbucks spokeswoman Jaime Riley said the coffee giant is “looking into additional opportunities to have more gender-neutral signage in our restrooms where jurisdictions allow it.”

Flashback: Bernie Sanders Kicked Out of Hippie Commune for Shirking Work

-By Warner Todd Huston


In a new book chronicling the history of a 1970s commune, an author claims that self-avowed socialist Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders was kicked out of the place for shirking the work required of its residents.

According to author Kate Daloz, in 1971 when he was 30-years-old, Bernie Sanders came to the commune just as he was launching his career in the socialist Liberty Union Party.

But after staying for a period of time, the commune’s staff asked Sanders to leave because he spent all his time sitting around talking about politics and taking other residents away from the work they were required to do to keep the facility running.

In the forthcoming book We Are As Gods, Daloz presents a history of the Myrtle Hill Farm commune situated in picturesque Northeast Vermont.

According to the Freebeacon, the author says that Sanders went to the commune for research purposes. Apparently he was writing an article on natural childbirth for the Liberty Party Union’s magazine, “Movement.”

But according to author’s interviews, Sanders was a disruptive influence among the hippies and yippies living there.

Daloz found one resident named Craig who told her he “resented feeling like he had to pull others out of Bernie’s orbit if any work was going to get accomplished that day.”

Obama’s Promise to Destroy the Coal Industry Has Been Kept

Obama’s Promise to Destroy the Coal Industry Has Been Kept

-By Warner Todd Huston

Back in 2008 Barack Obama was given little notice when he told the editorial board of the San Francisco Chronicle that if he became president he’d work to destroy the coal industry, both for miners and power providers. Now, as his presidency comes to an end we see he has kept that promise.

This month, despite that coal is still one of the world’s leading sources of energy, America’s biggest coal company, Peabody Energy, filed for bankruptcy. Peabody joins a growing list of bankruptcies of other American coal concerns including Alpha Natural Resources, Arch Coal, and Patriot Coal.

Granted the industry had problems before Obama came along, but those problems became but a small part of the insurmountable obstacles put in their way by Obama’s policy to “bankrupt” the coal industry.

And before you think we here at Publius Forum are just being hyperbolic, no, “bankrupt” is exactly the term Obama used in his interview in 2008.

Here it is in Obama’s own voice

Governor Nathan Deal’s Dumbest Claim to Quash Religious Freedom

Governor Nathan Deal’s Dumbest Claim to Quash Religious Freedom

-By Warner Todd Huston

On Monday Georgia Governor Nathan Deal vetoed a religious liberty bill that would stop state authorities from forcing Christians to participate in gay marriages, but one of the “reasons” Deal said prevented him from signing the bill is fraught with a pretzel logic he can’t possibly believe.

In the Governor’s view, HB 757 was “discriminatory.” Instead of protecting religious freedom, Deal claimed it only served to oppress gays. Worse, he said despite clear examples of such coercion in other states, since it’s never happened in Georgia then the law isn’t needed.

Of course, the law was written to head off the sort of state-sponsored coercion and curtailment of religious liberty seen in other states, not necessarily a law meant to correct what has already happened in the Peach State. The fact it has happened in a number of other states was plenty enough reason to try to prevent it from happening at all in Georgia.

In any case, Deal goes on to note how religious liberty is one of the first principles of the founding of the country. The founders, Deal said, “made it clear that those liberties [religious liberties] were given by God and not by man’s government. Therefore, it was unnecessary to enumerate in statute or constitution what those liberties included.”

He then went on to indulge some truly absurd pretzel logic that is so tortured even he can’t possible believe it…

‘Chicago Tribune’ Critic Slams America’s Love of Entertaining Super Bowl Ads

‘Chicago Tribune’ Critic Slams America’s Love of Entertaining Super Bowl Ads

-By Warner Todd Huston

A Chicago Tribune TV critic was aghast that Americans often enjoy the commercials during the Super Bowl. Apparently he was upset about all that capitalism going on and mad that Americans don’t rise up and throw their shoes at their TVs in revolt. Corporations are apparently all venal and wasteful, he alleges, and we shouldn’t stand for it.

In his February 5 critique, Trib’s TV scribe Phil Rosenthal got his dander up several days before the Super Bowl as the nation had already begun talking about the commercials everyone was looking forward to seeing. The prospects of capitalism seemed to have put Rosenthal in a foul mood.

The columnist’s first assumption about why we enjoy many of the commercials was one literally no one believes.

“It’s as if the fact that some marketer spent $5 million per half minute — up about 11 percent from $4.5 million last year — to pitch more than 100 million of us in the Super Bowl 50 audience obliges us to actually pay attention,” he wrote.

No one watches Super Bowl commercials imagining they are obligated to do so because they are so expensive to air. No one.

But from this argument so early in his piece, one can begin to note the anti-corporate and anti-capitalist bent of the rest of the article.

Muslim Employees at Wisconsin Co. Upset Over Cancellation of Prayer Time

Muslim Employees at Wisconsin Co. Upset Over Cancellation of Prayer Time

-By Warner Todd Huston

A Wisconsin manufacturing plant made a policy announcement affecting the prayer time for its 53 Muslims employees but the new policy change has employees banding together and claiming they are being “discriminated” against. Imagine if Christians did this…

The Ariens Company, a lawn mower and snowmobile manufacturing company in Brillion, Wisconsin, made a recent change in company policy ending the past practice of its many Muslim employees who often took multiple breaks for Muslim prayers. Whereas in the past employees were able to take breaks whenever they needed to join in prayer, now the company says Muslim employees will get only a lunch break and should indulge their prayers at that time. The company also warned employees if they try to take other times off they will be replaced.

But employees say that the one lunch break does not coincide with the proper time for Muslim prayers.

Dear Baby New Year, THIS is What Liberals Have in Store For You

-By Warner Todd Huston

The year 2015 is now in the rear view mirror and Baby New Year has waddled in, diaper and all. But baby, you are still young and naive and I hate to say it but you and the generation you are ushering in will have an awful time once you find out what liberals have in store for you.

First of all, you are lucky, Baby New Year, lucky that you even got a chance to see 2016. Were it up to any common liberal you’d have been aborted back in 2015 when you were still gestating. Granted there’s a chance you’d have seen 2016 only to have your body diced up and sold for its lucrative parts. In any case, thank your lucky stars that you escaped the liberals’ beloved slice and dice.

But don’t think you are too lucky. After all, the bleak world that liberals have already set in motion for you is not one you’re likely to enjoy.

Because, dear Baby New Year, liberals have already set the rules for your world as you grow up and it ain’t gonna be pretty.

You may think that you are waddling into the United States, the land of freedom, liberty and self-determination. But the liberals have already killed that hoary old ideal. And don’t speak too loudly because liberals have taken away your free speech. Say the wrong thing and you’ll be thrown out of your school, you’ll lose you job, and you’ll become an outcast to society… such as it is.

‘Christian’ Group Lies About Christianity to Urge Sen. Kirk to Sign Onto Obama’s EPA Powergrab

-By Warner Todd Huston

A new radio spot being played on Chicago talk radio by a purportedly “Christian” environmentalist group is using a pack of lies about Christianity and the environment in order to push left-wing Senator Mark Kirk into signing onto the President’s global warming policies.

A faux Christian group calling itself the “Evangelical Environmental Network” launched its radio blitz on November 12 with the sales line “It’s up to us to care for the earth that God left us.” But the ad is quite a pack of lies especially considering that it is coming from a group of so-called Christians.

First of all the ad misleads by presenting soundbytes from “Christian voices” urging Kirk to vote “yes” on Obama’s pro-global warming initiatives. The presentation to the radio audience listening to the ad makes it seem as if these “regular people” were callers to a radio show–as that is the timber of the audio, the sound is mixed in such a way as to leave the impression you are listening to a talk show caller as opposed to hearing someone speaking directly into a microphone like a narrator might.

With the announcer sonorously starting the ad saying “The voices of Christians,” here is what these faux “regular people” say on the ad:

Fire The Leeches: Now Federal Employees Make 78 Percent More Than Private Sector Workers

Fire The Leeches: Now Federal Employees Make 78 Percent More Than Private Sector Workers

-By Warner Todd Huston

A new report show once again that government workers–all of them–are leeches, most of whom we should fire. Now we find the outrageous statistics showing that federal workers earned on average 78 percent more in total compensation than private sector workers in 2014. 78 percent! This is intolerable.

The stats were found in a new report from Government Magazine that assembled the numbers for us.

“The Cato Institute’s Chris Edwards compared data from the Bureau of Economic Analysis to show that, in his view, civilian federal workers are overcompensated,” the report says. “Factoring both salary and benefits, Edwards pointed to BEA data showing the average federal employee earns about $119,000 annually, compared to the private sector worker who earns $67,000 per year. When comparing just salaries, feds collect 50 percent bigger paychecks, Edwards said.”

It all goes to prove my long-time claim that If You Work for Government, You Deserve to be Fired. I really don’t care what you do for government I think you deserve to be fired.* In fact, I think that you need to be fired to save this republic. Not only do I want you fired, I want your pension negated. You don’t deserve one.

I’ll let that sink in a bit.

Of course, conservatives have the reputation of wanting to oust everyone in office and for wanting to “vote the scoundrels out.” But, I am not just wallowing in a trope, here. In fact, I’d like to add one more level to the throw-them-out-of-government concept. Let’s fire every government worker from the smallest village receptionist or sewer worker to the staffers of the highest Senator and every menial clerk and recalcitrant paper shuffler in between.

I am, here, indulging a little bombast, of course, but only a little. A very little.

USA Falls Again on Freedom Scale, Thanks to Increase in the Obama-Led Ending of Rule of Law

USA Falls Again on Freedom Scale, Thanks to Increase in the Obama-Led Ending of Rule of Law

-By Warner Todd Huston

The USA has fallen another few notches on the freedom scale thanks in part to the increasing lawlessness of Obama and his Democrat cohorts according to the latest freedom list put out by the Cato Institute.

Over the last half dozen years or so the USA has slowly lost ground on the Cato Human Freedom Index. This country was once in the top 5 countries with the most freedom but this year the USA slipped several more places to the 20th spot.

Only last year the US was ranked 17th on this yearly list, but this year we’ve fallen to 20.

This slip in the rankings is mostly due to the fact that businesses are being strangled by oppressive regulations and crushed by rampantly greedy unions. But it also due to the end of the rule of law in the US as government ignores laws, re-tooling them and warps them at will in order to feed its rapacious appetite for complete control of our lives. And most especially the sharp rise in abuse of eminent domain rules allowing government to steal private property on a whim has contributed to American’s loss of freedom.

“Since the year 2000, the U.S. has been on a decline in terms of economic freedom,” Co-author of the report Ian Vasquez told The Daily Caller News Foundation on Wednesday.

Springfield Needs to Stop This Unfair Satellite Tax

Springfield Needs to Stop This Unfair Satellite Tax

-By Lisa Volpe

As the Illinois legislature continues to meet in Springfield with no state budget on the books, there are some who want to implement a new tax on satellite television customers. This is a discriminatory tax that’s perpetually suggested. The bottom line is that the cable industry wants to impose a satellite tax to make it less attractive for consumers.

The idea proponents are floating is to place a new 5 percent tax on every subscriber’s bill for no other reason than to suppress the satellite industry’s efforts to compete with cable.

Lawmakers on both sides of the aisle see this tax increase for what it is and have repeatedly rejected it. Since 2009, the cable industry has tried to pass satellite tax bills 53 times in 28 states – and state legislatures across the country have debated and rejected these new consumer taxes time and again. The reason is simple: satellite taxes discriminate against consumers who chose a wireless alternative to cable for their television.

Cable companies in Illinois pay rent – known as a “franchise fee” – to cities and towns for digging up public roads and for hanging wires. The cable industry somehow thinks satellite consumers should pay a tax simply for providing a competing service.

We Should End Birthright Citizenship Whether Trump Wins Election or Not

We Should End Birthright Citizenship Whether Trump Wins Election or Not

-By Warner Todd Huston

One of the key aspects of the new immigration policy that Donald Trump proposed this weekend was to end birthright citizenship, the one rule that has served to create the “anchor baby” phenomenon drawing pregnant mothers to the U.S. from every corner of the world. This would be the right move for any president to make and it would be in keeping with the original intent of the Constitution and its requisite amendments.

Donald Trump came out with his plan to fix immigration on Sunday written with the aid of Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions. Along with appearances on the Sunday political talk show, Trump issued a new policy paper to codify his plan. If elected he says he would work to streamline the immigration process, triple the number of Immigration and Customs officers, require companies to hire only American citizens or legal immigrants by implementing the e-verify program, and he would end birthright citizenship.

Of the latter, Trump said that birthright citizenship (BC) “remains the biggest magnet for illegal immigration.”

Millions of immigrant women, pregnant or not, come here in order to have their child born on U.S. soil so that they can then claim citizenship for the child. This action has the benefit of giving cover for family members of that sudden “new citizen” to stay in the U.S. and to give those family members free benefits courtesy of the U.S. taxpayer.

Americans rally against “birth tourism.”

Unfortunately, what we have now is a situation where the law considers someone a “natural born citizen” based solely on the physical location of their birth. If a child is born anywhere inside U.S. territory, that child is an automatic citizen. This might seem logical, but is actually a perversion of the ideas of the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. It has also become a loophole by which millions of greedy foreigners have grabbed hold of U.S. benefits they do not deserve.

Birthright citizenship should absolutely be eliminated regardless of who becomes president.

Donald Trump is Jeb Bush’s Fault (Along with the REST Of the GOP Establishment)

-By Warner Todd Huston

Let’s face it, Donald Trump has tapped into a very serious concern that most Americans have and that is illegal immigration. But the fact that he’s become a rising star in this GOP primary race at this time isn’t because he’s so great. It’s because the GOP is so damn bad on the issue. For Trump’s current success, the whole thing is Jeb Bush, John Boehner, and Mitch McConnell’s fault.

First off, let’s be frank. Donald Trump is not a conservative. He is a recent supporter of single payer healthcare, has claimed in the past that he supports blanket amnesty, and has been all over the map on such important topics as guns and abortion. So, please let’s stop pretending he is a conservative. He absolutely has no such track record.

But his denunciation of Obama’s failed–in fact dangerous–immigration policy is exactly what angers and frightens GOP voters along with a fair portion of Democrats.

Likely without doing the requisite research for statistics to prove the matter, Trump innately understands that what we have going on in immigration is a dangerous and wrong headed policy, one that seems to have a twin purpose: to destroy this country and to set up a permanent Democrat majority through creating automatic Democrat voters after a presidential amnesty.

Trump has been absolutely fearless in speaking out against this dangerous policy that is turning America into a third world nation. He has taken the fight straight to Obama on numerous occasions and that is exactly what Republican voters want to see.

This is one of my preeminent examples of why there should never, ever be such a thing as a union for a government employee–ANY government employee. A teachers union in Colorado has been caught red handed using tax money to fund a campaign to urge lawmakers to raise taxes.

The story comes to us form ColoradoPeakPolitics, but it is a tale that could just as easily come from New York, Illinois, or any other state bedeviled with grasping, anti-American public employee unions.

After Loud Support, Now Los Angeles Unions Want Exemption from $15 Minimum Wage Law

-By Warner Todd Huston

Once again wallowing in the hypocrisy that is liberalism, the same unions that went to the mat to support the new $15 per hour minimum wage law in Los Angeles are now demanding that the city exempt unionized companies from being forced to pay a minimum wage of $15 per hour.

The city’s union leaders were some of the loudest supporters of the new minimum wage, but now those same leaders are demanding that the L.A. City Council change the rules and exempt their own special interests from being stuck with the new wage.

Once again we see liberals insisting that everyone but them should be affected by a law they pushed.

Their excuse for the about face is that unionized businesses have already negotiated their deals and that they shouldn’t have to change them to observe the new wage law.

School Choice Finally on the Agenda in Illinois

-By Warner Todd Huston

The move for school choice is not only growing in Illinois in general but in Chicago in particular as politicians and parents both see the downward spiral of the public education system picking up speed.

With the costs of public education soaring but neither the rates of graduation nor proficiency growing accordingly, parents are desperate to find a way for their children to gain a better education.

The state is pumping millions upon millions into the bottomless pit of education and taxes are edging higher every year to support the spending habit. As an example, Illinois school district U46 (west of Chicago in the Elgin area) has $600 million in bond debt and this is just one of the nearly 700 school districts in Illinois.

So, as the system founders, many experiments have blossomed. We all know that charter schools have grown rapidly in the Chicago area, but there are other schools such as Leo Catholic High School in Chicago’s Auburn Gresham neighborhood that are serving as perfect examples of school choice. Leo is a prime example of a private high school that is a wildly successful example of education at its finest.

The school is not fully supported financially by the city’s Catholic system but has since 1926 served students as an independent high school operating in what is now one of the city’s most depressed neighborhoods. The school started back when Auburn Gresham was a heavily Irish-Catholic part of the city but now serves an entirely African American student body. (Edit to note: The Archdiocese of Chicago does support Leo and has provided over $2M in direct, financial operating support for the school between 2009 and 2015, but doesn’t pay all the school’s expenses as it does the schools it has direct control over.)

The school has been such a success that for the last six years 100% of its students have been accepted into a college or university and 96 percent have gone on to pursue higher education.

You Can Now Be Fired for Posting a Cartoon Gun Emoji on Twitter

-By Warner Todd Huston

In an idiotic act of PCism run amuck, The Houston Rockets NBA team has fired its social media director because he dared to posted two emoticons (or emojis) of a horse being shot by a gun after the Mavericks lost to the Rockets on Wednesday. The media guy’s bosses said that the gun emoji “wasn’t appropriate” and so fired him over it.

This is the idiocy we’ve arrived at, folks. It seems that all it takes for your career to be over these days is one non-PC action and bingo, bango, it’s the end. And why is a picture of a carttongun a fireable offense, anyway?

After the Houston Rockets beat the Mavericks, the Texans’ social media manager Chad Shanks jumped on Twitter to celebrate the team’s win–as is… or was… his job.

Shanks’ Tweet featured a cartoon gun emoji aimed at a horse invoking the old “dead horse” joke to suggest that the Mavericks were destined to lose.

Liberals Should Celebrate ISIS as Most Perfect Non-Profit Ever Begun

-By Warner Todd Huston

The left should be celebrating the ISIS terrorists as the perfect example of the sort of non-profit enterprise the virtues of which they constantly extol. In fact, led by the Obviator In Chief in Washington, since leftists are refusing to call ISIS what they are, maybe they are celebrating them after all?

Remember back in 2008 when Michelle Obama said that young people should not be so greedy as to get jobs in corporate America? Instead she instead America’s youngsters should find work at a non-profit. At a speech in Zanesville, Ohio, Michelle urged young people to make the choice “to move out of the money-making industry into the helping industry,” and darn it if ISIS didn’t take up on her challenge.

President Obama even once called his job working for a company as “working for the enemy” because of all that icky money and profits.

City Being Forced to ‘Negotiate’ With Union Despite That No Employees Belong

-By Warner Todd Huston

Here we have yet another example of why unions should never, ever be allowed for government workers. A union that claims to represent police officers in Moriarty, New Mexico, is attempting to force the city to negotiate raises for officers quite despite the fact that the union doesn’t count a single member of the force as a member.

You read that right. A union with no members is claiming that it has the power to force a city to give police officers raises courtesy of the taxpayer.

Back in 2010 the city’s officers did vote to invite a union to represent them but when all was said and done only two officers joined the union. The majority refused. And since 2010 the two officers that did belong to the union have since left the force leaving the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) without even a single member on the force.

Yet, AFSCME is insisting that they have the right to negotiate raises despite not having a single member for which to negotiate.

Illinois’ Slow Start to Fracking Still Faced Stiff Resistance

-By Warner Todd Huston | Watchdog Arena

Hes is my second piece at the Watchdog…

Even as fracking finally came to Illinois, it came at the worst time in the market for oil. This advancement, however, was not made easily. Resistance to the measure was heavy, replete with tough regulations.

In 2013, after then-Governor Pat Quinn signed the bill authorizing fracking, many hoped that the new rules would bring much-needed jobs to a state with one of the worst economies and job climates in the country.

But in recent months the price of oil collapsed, making fracking operations inside the U.S. much less profitable. For Illinois, it has been nearly too late to cash in. Could Illinois have avoided being too late to profit off of fracking?

Things could have gotten off to a better start. The Democrat-led state legislature dragged its feet on regulations and implementation for over a year and a half. By the time regulations were finished, the boom was on the wane….

Obama Says Illegal Immigrants ‘Just Like Us’ and ‘Belong Here’

-By Warner Todd Huston

Obama met with a group of illegal immigrants in the White House today and said that they “belong here” and that they are “just like” the rest of America’s citizens.

Even as this President refuses to meet with the leader of our ally, Israel, he takes meetings with lawbreakers right in the White House. Then he supports their law breaking and says they deserve to be here.

Here is what CBS News’ Mark Knoller Tweeted about the President’s remarks.

Has there ever been a more lawless, un-American man in the White House?

Gallup Polling Org Rips Obama’s Fake Recovery As Jobless

Gallup Polling Org Rips Obama’s Fake Recovery As Jobless

-By Warner Todd Huston

Jim Clifton, the CEO of the Gallup polling group, recently published a huge slam on Obama’s fake economic recover that he sharply titled, “The Big Lie: 5.6% Unemployment.” In the piece he exposes something that we conservatives have been talking about for years, namely that Obama’s unemployment figures are nothing but lies and that the low, low labor participation rate proves that we have had no increase in jobs.

His piece starts somewhat absurdly saying that even “the smartest and most educated among us” don’t know that Obama’s unemployment rate reports are “extremely misleading.”

We can quibble with that because conservatives have been pointing this out since two years after Obama came to office. But, still, it’s good that the rest of the “educated” are catching up and finally starting to understand the lies that Obama is selling as an economic recovery.

Anyway, that aside, Clifton notes that the number of jobs has not really increased at all because there are millions who have simply stopped trying to find work and are seemingly permanently jobless. This is the labor participation rate and it is shockingly dismal.

Here is how Clifton put it:

Obama Plans to Include Provisions for ‘Rising Sea Levels’ In Every Federal Project

-By Warner Todd Huston

Going forward, Barack Obama has announced that every federal project will now include provisions to acknowledge the claim that sea levels will rise due to global warming.

Obama issued one of his many, many Executive Orders on Friday directing federal agencies to include plans for rising sea levels in every new project for the remaining years of his reign in the White House.

[VIDEO] America: Don’t Root for the Socialist Seahawks

-By Warner Todd Huston

If you are wondering which team a good conservative should root for during Sunday’s Super Bowl, this video has your answer: don’t root or the socialist Seahawks.

No it’s not because “Patriots” is more patriotic. No, it’s not even because the Seahawks are from a left-wing state–at least not merely for that reason.

So, why root for the Patriots? Here’s why a free market conservative should oppose the Seahawks…

Now, note that I said it wasn’t merely because the Seahawks come from a state filled with lily-livered liberals, but then again the whole unfortunate stadium deal occurred because its lily-livered liberals.

Still…. you get the point.

Obama AG Nominee Insists Illegals Have a ‘Right To Work’ In The USA

Obama AG Nominee Insists Illegals Have a ‘Right To Work’ In The USA

-By Warner Todd Huston

On Wednesday Obama’s Attorney General Nominee Loretta Lynch said that all illegals should be allowed to work in the USA despite the fact that they are breaking our immigration laws and are essentially criminals in this country.

Senator Jeff Sessions (R, AL), Chairman of the Senate Immigration Subcommittee, questioned Obama’s Attorney General Nominee Loretta Lynch at the Judiciary hearing to consider her nomination. Sessions asked Lynch about the President’s decision to bypass Congress to order an amnesty, and how this action undermined the rights of disadvantaged American workers.

“The president’s actions,” Sessions said, “would give people who came here unlawfully the right to work, the right to participate in Social Security and Medicare, when Congress has not done that. Allows them to stay for at least a period lawfully. Let me ask you this, in the workplace of American today when we have a high number of unemployed, we’ve had declining wages for many years, we have the lowest percentage of Americans working, who has more right to a job in this country, a lawful immigrant who’s here–a green card holder–or a citizen, or a person who entered the country unlawfully?”

In reply Lynch said that all illegals should be allowed to work in the USA despite our current employment and immigration laws.

Chris Christie’s Appeal to Centrists is Failing to Catch Fire

Chris Christie’s Appeal to Centrists is Failing to Catch Fire

-By Warner Todd Huston

It is plain that New Jersey Governor Chris Christie thinks that his path to the White House lies in plying the middle ground between conservatives and moderates and presenting himself as the man who can appeal to all political factions. But, so far at least, it seems he is failing to excite much interest in the idea.

Christie already suffers among conservatives. He is knocked by many on the right side of the political equation for not being conservative enough and Christie understands this criticism all too well. In fact, he felt the need to address this perception during his speech this month at Congressman Steve King’s Freedom Summit in Iowa.

Last weekend the New Jersey Governor told the conservative crowd that he is plenty conservative enough to deserve consideration by even the most conservative voter. Then he laid out his bona fides in an attempt to make his case.

Let’s just say he was received with polite applause but not many minds were changed.

Illegals Don’t Want to be Americans, So Keep Them Out

Illegals Don’t Want to be Americans, So Keep Them Out

-By Warner Todd Huston

One of the things that the far left always says to excuse lawbreaking illegal immigrants is that they just want to be “like Americans” and attain the American dream just like immigrants to the US always have. This, however, is a lie. Many immigrants no longer have any desire to become Americans and just want our money so they can send it back home.

The old American dream was the promise that a “foreigner” could immigrant to the US, become a citizen, get a job, save their money, and make a life for them and more especially for their children.

For many of these people it was a special mark of pride to learn English and then learn enough about American history and its system of government to pass the citizenship test in order to become an official naturalized American.

This is what Democrats are invoking when they try to excuse lawbreaking illegals today. They claim that immigrants today are exactly the same as those of all our yesteryears.

But even the former president of Mexico is here to disabuse Democrats of this lie.

Illinois’ House Reps Have More Wealth Than Average Member of Their Electorate

Illinois’ House Reps Have More Wealth Than Average Member of Their Electorate

(Here is my very first piece over at The Watchdog….)

-By Warner Todd Huston

A recent survey of the wealth of members of Congress revealed that, on average, it would take the combined wealth of 18 American households to equal the wealth of a single member of Congress. While this is an averaged statistic and individual cases vary, a review of the wealth of members of the Illinois delegation to Washington proves the rule rather than the exception.

The January report by OpenSecrets.org found that, “The median net worth of a member of Congress was $1,029,505 in 2013… compared with an average American household’s median net worth of $56,355.”

It is apropos to review what members of Congress are paid as they serve in Washington. Members of the House of Representatives are paid $174,000 a year, a salary that has been frozen in place since 2009. Speakers of the House and majority and minority leaders make a bit more than the average Congressman to befit their higher positions. Members of the House cannot collect a pension until they have served for five years, meaning they’d have to win election three times. Their pensions are never higher than 80 percent of their highest salary and is paid out at retirement age–unless they are still working somewhere in the federal government. In that case, they can’t collect a pension until they are no longer earning a federal salary.

So, what about Illinois? Well, the congressional salary itself certainly puts our representatives in a higher tax bracket than the average citizen of their state. According to information released by the U.S. Census, the median household income of the 13 million some citizens in Illinois is $56,777 annually. That is about 7 percent higher than the national average…

So Far, Obama Has Broken a Whopping 112 Promises From SOTU Speeches

So Far, Obama Has Broken a Whopping 112 Promises From SOTU Speeches

-By Warner Todd Huston

The folks at the Grabien video service has taken the time to track all Obama’s promises made during his past State of the Union speeches and found that 112 of his promises have gone unkept.

From 2009 to 2014, Obama has made scores of promises at his SOTU blatherings, but few of his promises have been fulfilled.

In fact, Obama has the worst record of getting what he wants at the SOTU since Gerald Ford!

Grabien didn’t just create a montage video of the failed promises, but they also took the time to write them all out.
