Look Who’s Arriving on the NAFTA Train

In 2005, President George W. Bush held a summit meeting with the “three amigos” to promote the free movement of people and goods across our Mexican and Canadian borders. The Council on Foreign Relations then spoke of “building a North American community” with a common “security perimeter” and “labor mobility” among our three countries. Texas planned to build a massive NAFTA superhighway that would start in Mexico and reach northern U.S. cities. The Kansas City Southern Railway bought a Mexican railroad and began branding it the NAFTA railroad. The goal was to carry Chinese products from Mexico’s ports all the way to Kansas City.

The Racket of H-1Bs

On this Labor Day, let’s consider the racket of giving U.S. jobs to foreigners instead of Americans. In January 2012, the wife of a laid-off semiconductor engineer publicly asked President Obama, “Why does the government continue to issue H-1B visas when there are tons of Americans just like my husband with no job?” Her husband eventually found a job in the health care industry, earning $40,000-a-year less than before.

School Blocks Conservative Websites

A high school student in Connecticut discovered that his school’s computers block conservative and Christian websites – but not liberal and Muslim ones. Andrew Lampart, a senior at Nonnewaug High School, was trying to research gun control for a class debate. He wanted to get the conservative side of the story from the National Rifle Association, but its website was blocked. He had no problem accessing the websites for anti-gun groups such as Moms Demand Action and Newtown Action Alliance. Andrew was curious whether he would run into the same slanted blocking for other issues. He discovered that he could access his state’s Democratic party website, but not the site for the state GOP. Pro-life websites were also blocked, but he could get Planned Parenthood. When he went looking for religious sites, Christianity.com and the Vatican’s website weren’t available, but there was no problem getting onto Islam-guide.com.

How Marriage Prevents Male Violence

It’s an unpleasant truth that millions of girls and women in America have been abused or assaulted by men. It’s also true that many women live in fear of attack. While the numbers may be inflated or exaggerated by feminists, there’s no denying that some men can pose a danger to women. But the threat that some women face is very foreign to many married women. Most married women don’t expect violence from men; instead, they expect, and receive, protection.
