Public Goes Ballistic Over the Porous Mexican Border

Written by Gary North on July 17, 2014


A recent Gallup poll reveals that two issues are neck and neck as the issues of greatest concern in the USA: (1)  illegal aliens; (2) dissatisfaction with the federal government. Gallup dutifully refuses to call them illegal aliens. One does not use such crude, accurate language. No, no, no; these are “undocumented immigrants.” In early […]

Posted on July 16, 2014


Representative Paul Ryan (R., Wis.,) has given up on passing legislation to overhaul the current immigration system because the border crisis has poisoned the political atmosphere for such an effort, at least for this year. “It has poisoned it now, that’s for sure,” Ryan told National Review Online, saying he didn’t know if the legislative debate would be feasible […]

Why There Will Be No Revolution. Facebook Will Prevent It.

Written by Gary North on June 28, 2014


I recently read an article on the Left-wing website in Great Britain, The Guardian. This has been the most consistently Left-wing publication in Great Britain.

Impeachment and Envy

Written by Gary North on June 27, 2014


Two Presidents have been impeached: Andrew Johnson and Clinton. Neither was convicted by the Senate, although Johnson won by only one vote. It would be a waste of rime to try to impeach Obama. The main case for this would be that Congress would waste a lot of time. There is a good case for […]

Suing Obama Over Executive Orders

Written by Gary North on June 27, 2014


House Speaker John Boehner threatens a lawsuit over Obama’s use of executive orders. I’m for it. The public does not understand executive orders. Any bad publicity given to them is positive. There are over 13,000 of them. They let a President create laws without Congress. They are mentioned in the Constitution. They have been used […]
