Presidential Candidates on the record – Birthright Idiotship

Should babies of “illegal aliens” born here be counted as citizens? “No!” shout nine of the 17 Republican presidential candidates as of August 19, 2015. Trump wrote a thesis on it. He says his “very good lawyers” can end it without messing with a Constitutional Amendment. This is part 3 of the series “Birthright Idiotship” […]

The actual case for enslaving “illegals” – Birthright Idiotship

Jan Mickelson, Des Moines radio talk show host, who is the primary radio “gatekeeper” for presidential candidates wooing Republicans in advance of Iowa’s “first in the nation” caucuses, doesn’t stop at saying Congress can end Birthright Citizenship without disturbing the Constitution.

Costs to citizens of ending birthright citizenship – Birthright Idiotship

Should babies of “illegal aliens” born here be counted as citizens? And while we’re checking, does the Constitution answer this: may we enslave “illegals”? The answer depends on the meaning of “jurisdiction” in the 14th Amendment according, some say, to what one Senator in 1866 meant by one sentence. Half the Republican presidential candidates want […]

Santorum, King trust this

“Not true”, Senator Rick Santorum, Republican presidential candidate, told me when I showed him a card saying economists agree that immigration benefits citizens. “The studies saying that are older. When they came out I was on the other side [with you expansionists.]” He said when they were superseded with the newer more accurate studies he […]

The Conservative Response to Trump

Donald Trump has continued to make headlines, not only through the ostentatious, borderline decadent “announcement” of his presidential candidacy (I put this in scare quotes because I do not believe Trump in any way intends on actually attempting to be the President of the United States but instead is putting on an absurd performance art […]

Ben Carson: economists no help understanding the economy

By Dave Leach – This morning I finally had an opportunity to ask Dr. Ben Carson, presidential candidate, “When we need to understand the economic impact of immigration, do you think we would be better off listening to experts who actually have degrees in economics?” I had expected him to answer “well of course”, and […]

God’s judgment on immigration quotas

Leading up to the Great Depression, the mistreatment of Jewish and Latino immigrants was different, but equally serious, and was partly its cause. When we compare the mistreatment of Jewish immigrants with that of Latinos, we see the mistreatments were different, but equal serious triggers A couple of years ago I  noted the correlation between […]
