GOP, Dems continue to pay lip service to protecting American jobs

If Republican and Democratic voters still aren't sure that their parties are engaged in an all-out war against American workers, they should pay closer attention to House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) and Rep.Mark Pocan (D-WI).

In a Sept. 29 interview with The Daily Caller Boehner, when asked howamnesty and increased legal immigration would affect the incomes and job prospects of...

The hypocrisy of today's progressive politicians

During their appearance at the September 13 "Fighting Bob Fest" in Baraboo, WI, Sens. Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) and Bernie Sanders (I-VT), and Rep. Mark Pocan (2nd) paid tribute to the century-old core message of progressives like the late Sen. Robert M. La Follette:  End Corporate America's smothering influence on the federal government. 

"As long as we have corporations more interested in...

Wisconsin editor misses the bigger immigration question

Reedsburg (Wis.) Times-Press Editor Julie Belschner writes in her August 2 column that the nation's worsening border situation "isn't about illegal immigration" but about "children who need help."

I disagree on both counts.  What this is really about is our federally created immigration crisis that has been growing for nearly 30 years because Congress has failed at the request of the...

Obama's 'transparent' government hiding number of released illegal border crossers from Central America

In February 2009, newly elected President Barack Obama said:

"My Administration is committed to creating an unprecedented level of openness in Government.  We will work together to ensure the public trust and establish a system of transparency, public participation, and collaboration.

Will media ever explain the meaning of 'anti-immigration'?

“But if thought corrupts language, language can also corrupt thought.” - George Orwell, 1984

For many years, certain members of the media who cover immigration either as opinion writers or reporters have without challenge from their equally shallow editors been permitted to falsely label as "anti-immigrant" or "anti-immigration" supporters of immigration law enforcement and reducing...

Why aren't ordinary Americans 'stakeholders' in the immigration debate?

When Amnesty-in-Chief Barack Obama meets with "stakeholders" to hear their thoughts on how to resolve our federally created immigration crisis, there is any empty chair at the table.  All the other chairs are occupied by business leaders who belly up to the cheap foreign labor trough, religious/spiritual leaders who have betrayed millions of native-born Americans struggling to survive,  and...

Washington Post columnist can't handle immigration truths

Remember all the hand-wringing and whining from the anti-rule of law crowd that crowned President Obama the "Deporter in Chief" because of what they said were "record" numbers of deportations that were continuing to tear families apart?

Never mind that this claim began raveling back in 2011 when Obama himself called the statistics deceptive because most of those "deported" were in fact...

Memorial Day 2014: Was it all in vain?
Another Memorial Day has come and gone.  There was the usual laying of wreaths, the wearing of paper poppies hand-made by the American Legion and Veterans of Foreign Wars, and the haunting sound of “Taps” across the nation, for which nearly 2 million Americans have died since its founding.   But even more haunting is this thought: Was it worth the sacrifice?   Why bother with...
