Replace White Working Class With Mexican Immigrants, Says ‘Weekly Standard’ Editor Bill Kristol
-By Warner Todd Huston
Weekly Standard editor Bill Kristol suggested Feb. 7 that the federal government should use immigration from Mexico to replace the American white working class.
“Look, to be totally honest, if things are so bad as you say with the white working class, don’t you want to get new Americans in?” Kristol said an event hosted by the American Enterprise Institute (AEI) in Washington D.C.
The event, titled “It Came Apart: What’s Next for a Fractured Culture?,” was held in Washington on February 7.
During the immigration discussion, AEI’s Charles Murray noted that the growing problems faced by the white working class in the United States had recently changed his opinion about immigration. Murray said that he now favors curbs on low-skill immigration.

NPR: Romney a George Wallace ‘White Supremacist,’ GOP Women are ‘Battered’
-By Warner Todd Huston
Unfortunately, hate is the main selling point on the National Public Radio distributed Smiley & West radio show and last week we got a big dollop of bile spewed against Republicans in general and GOP nominee Mitt Romney in particular.
The October 26 episode featured host Cornel West, a long-time radical lefty from Princeton, and substituting for West’s co-host Tavis Smiley was Julianne Malveaux, a woman well-known for spewing racist, hate at every opportunity.
Naturally, Malveaux felt that the only reason anyone would vote against Barack Obama is because they are sheet-wearing racists. When West asked why the election was so close, Malveaux said, “the underlying fact is in my opinion is racism.”
Curiously, Malveaux didn’t try to explain how, if all whites are racists, Obama was elected in the first place, nor did she explain how Mr. Obama got the biggest white vote of any Democrat presidential candidate since the early 1960s. But, there you have it.

“We have a choice of two futures. We know the path we’re on right now. That’s the path the President is proposing: a debt crisis; no health or retirement security; a diminished future; a stagnant country; less jobs; less prosperity. That is not the America we know. We can choose this other path, but we have to make that choice. We can lift the crushing burden of debt off our children and grandchildren. And we can get this economy growing today. It is up to our generation to pick this path. The question is: will we do it or not.” – US Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI), Chairman of the House Budget Committee, Path to Prosperity (Episode 1).
This will be the question that the 2012 Presidential Election decides. Will we choose to remain a fiscally solvent and financially independent Republic of sovereign citizens? Or will be choose to complete the fundamental transformation of the United States of America from Constitutional Republic to nanny-state, Socialist Democracy? To me – and to most thinking Americans – the choice is clear: we would all like to remain as free and independent as possible. But there are factions in our country that would like to transform our country into something that it was never intended to be. And there are other factions that are so targeted on the retention of power that they would destroy our nation in that pursuit.
The 2012 House Republican Budget Proposal, put forth by US Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI), arguably the most fiscally responsible person inside the beltway, is a solid, common sense piece of legislation that some on the Right – and on the Left – are calling moderate in its goals. It simplifies the tax code, collapsing the current system of six tax brackets for individuals into two marginal rates of 25 percent and 10 percent, and ends deductions that benefit a relatively small class of mostly higher-income individuals. It also lowers the top corporate tax rate to 25 percent – competitive with the world average, while eliminating carve-outs and loopholes that have allowed some narcissistic corporations to avoid paying taxes altogether. It would also scrap the Alternative Minimum Tax that captures more and more of the Middle Class each and every year.

Dems Plan Proves Medicare Dead by 2024
-By Warner Todd Huston
Congressman Peter Roskam, House GOP Deputy Majority Whip, got on record the fact that as things stand right now Medicare is dead by 2024. No ifs, ands, or buts, unless a major overhaul of the system is undertaken, Medicare is done in a little more than a decade.
Before congress two officials testified that based on our current path in 2024 there would be “actual” cuts to Medicare at 17%. They also confirmed that Medicare would end itself by 2024 unless actions are taken to save the program.
Democrats have tried to claim that it is Republican cost cutting that dooms Medicare, but this is simply untrue. Bt the very rules under which it now works, it seems that Medicare is already headed for doomsday.

Pay Up America, Each of You Owe The Govt $534,000
-By Warner Todd Huston
Obama will not take a check. You must sign over your homes, your 401k’s, the pink slip to your autos, all your savings…. come on America, be patriotic, pay Obama what you owe him. It amounts to $534,000 per person, so you better get your accounting in order.
Where does this $534,000 number come from? USA Today says that a little known government report pegs the government’s unfunded mandates at $61.6 trillion. Yes, that’s trillion with a “t.” That is the amount of money that all the un-Constitutional spending by the federal government will cost the taxpayers if it all continues to be mandated by law, court orders, regulations, and back room deals made by grasping government officials…

Kinzinger, House Freshmen Call on President Obama to End “MediSCARE” Tactics
From the office of Rep. Adam Kinzinger (Ill. 11)…
Yesterday, Congressman Adam Kinzinger (IL-11) along with his freshman colleagues, reiterated their call on the President at a press conference to keep his commitment made at the 2010 Republican Retreat in Baltimore to have a fact-based conversation immediately over reforming spending on entitlement programs and addressing the debt crisis now before it is insurmountable. (See .pdf of letter)
Last year, President Obama asked, “At what point can we have a serious conversation about Medicare and its long-term liability…or a serious conversation about budget and debt in which we’re not simply trying to position ourselves politically?’ The President went on to say we cannot start these discussions by asking “who’s to blame,” who is “trying to hurt our senior citizens” or “how can we make the American people afraid of the other side.” The President said this is what he’s “committed to doing.”

Russ J. Alan is a writer whose work often appears on the website RenewAmerica.com, a news/opinion site started several years ago by Alan Keyes. Alan’s latest column is about the mess that is Social Security and a quote from his piece was posted on National Public Radio’s website under the rubric of quotes on Iraq. But NPR takes the quote so badly out of context that one would think that Alan was saying just the opposite of what he actually said.
Remember our tax money goes for this NPR “service” to the nation.

Video: Saving Social Security with Personal Retirement Accounts
A new mini-documentary By Dan Mitchell of the CATO Institute explaining why personal accounts are the only way of dealing with Social Security’s huge, long-run, unfunded liability while also giving workers a chance to enjoy a safer and more secure retirement.
The take away: You’ll have to live to over 100-years-old to make your contributions into Social Security worthwhile!

Teacher Union Chief: Big Boss, Big Hypocrite
-By Warner Todd Huston
What was it that our apologizer in chief and his minions have told us? Wasn’t it that we all have to sacrifice because the U.S. is less than she used to be? Well American Federation of Teachers union chief, Rhonda “Randi” Weingarten, says phooey on that. Sacrifice if for the unwashed masses, not her.
Weingarten was full of dire warnings for Obama’s National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform. Even though the commission said that funding for education should not be cut Weingarten wanted to warn the commission that she and her union would attack them anyway for their recommendations on cutting Social Security and Medicare. What this has to do with teaching is anybody’s guess.
She boldly asserted that “shared sacrifice means holding millionaires responsible” for footing all the bills. I’m sure she feels everyone else should be left off scot-free.

The Truth about Social Security and the Federal Budget
-By Dan Scott
The coming federal budget debacle is one shrouded by lies wrapped in euphemisms, obfuscated by spin. Just as an example of the less than truthful statements coming from the Federal Government in it’s denial of the impending disaster to befall the nation I need only to point to the excerpt from the Trustee’s Report on Social Security.
The outlook for Medicare has improved substantially because of program changes made in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act as amended by the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010 (the “Affordable Care Act” or ACA). Despite lower near-term revenues resulting from the economic recession, the Hospital Insurance (HI) Trust Fund is now expected to remain solvent until 2029, 12 years longer than was projected last year, and the 75-year HI financial shortfall has been reduced to 0.66 percent of taxable payroll from 3.88 percent in last year’s report. Nearly all of this improvement in HI finances is due to the ACA. The ACA is also expected to substantially reduce costs for the Medicare Supplementary Medical Insurance (SMI) program; projected program costs as a share of GDP over the next 75 years are down 23 percent relative to the costs projected for the 2009 report.

Are We Headed Toward Another Revolution?
-By Warner Todd Huston
We see this sort of thing off and on as political eras wax and wane. The question of whether or not we are only just behind a new revolution starting up in the United States has been repeatedly asked almost since the instant the first one (or even the second one — the Civil War) came to a close.
But are we? Are we about to be plunged into a second revolution of some sort or another? And who will be on what side of this revolution? Angelo Codevilla, professor emeritus of international relations at Boston University, asks this question in the recent issue of the American Spectator and I must say he presents compelling reasons why we might be headed for another revolution.
It’s all about “America’s Ruling Class,” says Codevilla. These elites have lost touch with America and are now solely interested in whats good for the ruling class and not whats good for America and it people.

Obama’s FDR-Like Bait and Switch
-By Warner Todd Huston
Remember when Barack Hussein Obama first became president and the left-wing Old Media universally indulged the claim that he was “just like FDR“? Of late the Old Media has backed off that hyperbolic statement, but at least in a single incident, Obama has proven indeed to be just like FDR. The similarity entails laws about which the two presidents lied to the public in order to sell them. And in both instances, the truth only came out in court.
For FDR it was Social Security. The Roosevelt Administration sold Social Security as an “insurance” program when it began to push for the policy. The truth is, of course, that Social security and its unemployment plan adjunct is in no way an insurance program. It is welfare pure and simple.
