Rabid dogs

Coming to your block.


A shocking video of Saturday’s violent riots in Baltimore, Maryland show an individual shielding a handicapped woman caught in the sights of a mob throwing bottles, trash cans, and other objects at random bar patrons.

The video, highlighted by blogger SooperMexican, gives a first-person perspective of an assault on Bullpen, a bar near Orioles Park, which Breitbart News’s Matthew Boyle also reported on Saturday evening. A new detail seen at this angle shows that the mob’s victims include a woman in a motorized wheelchair (first appearing at 1:04).

Another bar patron stands in front of the woman to shield her from the barrage of refuse thrown by the mob. Among the biggest objects thrown are half-full trash cans and Red Bull-branded patio tables.

Boyle’s account of the fracas captures the intensity of the violence against random bystanders with no ties to the police or the death of Freddie Gray, the purported reasons for the protest gone violent:

Vietnam orphans search for their roots

Via Carl


Forty years ago this month a military C5-A transport left Saigon with orphans headed for new lives in America. But a cargo door blew out, and the plane crashed. It killed 138, including 78 children.

By the time South Vietnam fell, many more Vietnamese children had left their homeland. And now, Barry Petersen tells us, some of those children, long since grown up, are coming home: 

At the memorial service, they came to remember that terrible day in that terrible war -- the crash that killed 138 people, 78 of whom were children.

But more orphans were evacuated in the frantic last days. During the Vietnam War, some 3,000 orphans came to the U.S. Orphans like Tobi Snyder, who was barely six pounds when she came to America.

"I have a real love for life," she said. "And I don't know if that has anything to do with it, but I am a survivor. I am a fighter."

And *Stacy Meredith, given up by her mother when she was two. "As a child, you just don't understand how a parent could ever let you go," she told Petersen.

(*Being raised in the US she has adopted our values and doesn't realize/understand that Vietnamese mothers, both then and now, will gladly offer their children to someone who will in their opinion give them a better life. BT)

Kansas Governor Cuts Taxes, Job Growth EXPLODES

Via Joe


When Republican Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback decided to cut taxes rates in hopes of stimulating job growth, liberals all across the country started slamming him for it, calling his agenda a failure.

Apparently liberals don’t read good — remember Zoolander?  — because they obviously have no idea what the word “failure” even means, despite having the walking definition of the term sitting in the White House before their very eyes.

Those wonderful progressive loonies will be eating a steaming helping of crow, as it turns out, Brownback’s tax cuts are working.

Who would’ve, thought?

NC: Driver Permits for Illegal Immigrants?

Guess Who Profits, Who Suffers, and Who Pays

Mike Scruggs

North Carolina House Bill 328 is titled the “Highway Safety/Citizens Protection Act.” Bills backed by special interest supported legislators tend to have misleading and deceptive titles, but this one deserves special recognition for its insult to honest government. The claims that it will improve highway safety and make the public safer are farfetched. HB 328 gives drivers permits to illegal immigrants who should not be in North Carolina in the first place. This is an amnesty just as unlawful as those given recently by President and chief-law-breaker Barack Obama. It will serve as a strong magnet drawing even more illegal immigrants to North Carolina.

HB 328 will make it easier for illegal immigrants to get jobs that rightly belong to North Carolina natives and legal immigrants. More important to its sponsors, it will make hiring illegals easier and serve as a green light for employers who profit from cheap illegal foreign labor to expand this practice. This will displace many North Carolina workers and drive down the wages of many more who must compete with cheap imported labor for jobs. The fiscal, economic, and social consequences of this unpatriotic and unethical displacement of American labor by cheaper foreign labor are far more negative in consequence than most people dream.

According to the 2013 Heritage Foundation study on illegal immigration and amnesty, unlawful immigrant households use $14,387 more per year in benefits and services than they pay in taxes of any kind. Who pays for this?  It is not the employers of unlawful immigrants. This fiscal deficit is essentially an indirect public subsidy to employers of illegal immigrants. It is the continually abused taxpayers who pay or absorb the liability. These costs fall disproportionately on state and local governments. According to the Federation of Americans for Immigration Reform (FAIR), illegal immigration costs North Carolina state, county, and local governments $2.0 billion per year. FAIR is by no means the only organization to have substantiated the high costs of illegal immigration. Legislators and voters should also view the extensive research of the Center for Immigration Studies ( and NumbersUSA (

One of the worst probable effects of HB 328 is that giving illegal immigrants a red carpet treatment complete with driving privileges and an identity card will inevitably draw more illegal immigrants to North Carolina versus states that enforce immigration laws. For example, the 1986 national amnesty increased illegal immigration dramatically by 1990 and more than two fold within a decade. The impact of HB 328, if passed, will not be trivial. It would be a dramatic multiplier of illegal immigration and all the problems and costs that go with it.

Yet HB 328’s chief sponsor is Republican Representative Harry Warren of Rowan County. I have been a Republican county chairman in two states, but I have seldom seen Republican legislation as insulting to the party’s base as giving effective amnesty and a driver’s permit to illegals. Republicans are going to have to clean up their act, if they want to stay a majority party in North Carolina and the nation. Conservative voters are not going to vote on the basis of blind Republican loyalty, when they see their principles ignored and trampled by deception and spineless caving to special interest money. Republican voters who accept such violations of public trust on the basis of “party loyalty” are actually undermining their party, honest government, and the common good of the people.

Dr. George Borjas, Professor of Economics at Harvard University, and himself a Cuban immigrant, is recognized by many as the leading labor economist in the United States. His research has revealed the staggering negative impact of too much legal and illegal immigrant labor on American workers. Immigrants “contribute” $1.6 trillion or 11 percent per year to the American economy. This is not necessarily an incremental increase in the economy, but merely their share of the present economy. A significant part of their share is actually a displacement of American workers from the workforce. But even assuming the $1.6 trillion is their contribution, the net benefit of immigration to the American economy is only $35 billion or 0.2 percent of the annual GDP. per year. This trivial amount is more than offset by the annual fiscal deficits caused by illegal immigration estimated by various sources as between $55 billion to $100 billion. (Heritage, FAIR, et al.)

The $35 billion is the net effect of $437 billion in profits for businesses and individuals using foreign-born labor and a wage reduction of $402 billion for American workers. Divide this by 147 million American workers and you get an annual depression of $2,734 per American worker. The cost for North Carolina is probably not far from the U.S. average. The negative impact on American workers for 11.5 million illegals in the country is about $109 billion per year versus $118 billion per year profits for those who use illegal immigrant labor. The impact of the current illegal immigrant population per American worker is $741 per year in depressed wages. The wages of American workers have been stagnant for the last 15 years, owing largely to substantially increased levels of both legal and illegal immigration. Any legislation that is likely to increase illegal immigration into North Carolina is going to hurt North Carolina workers and taxpayers. Excessive legal immigration of cheap labor does the same thing. If legislators will only do their homework instead of listening to special interest claims, they will find the damage done to North Carolina workers and taxpayers far exceeds the questionable and unlawful benefits of giving illegal immigrants identity cards and the privilege of driving.

The supporters of HB 328 claim that giving drivers training to illegals will reduce highway accidents. This analysis is so shallow as to be inexcusable negligence. Whatever is gained by this will be overwhelmed by the probable increase in illegal immigration caused by essentially WELCOMING illegal immigrants to North Carolina. A 2006 study by the Highway Research Center of the University of North Carolina showed that DWI/DUI related accidents for illegal immigrants were 2.5 times greater than the population as a whole. No one outside of a madhouse can believe HB 328 is a highway and public safety bill.

There is also other significant crime due to illegal immigration in North Carolina. North Carolinians for Immigration Reform (NCFire) has been collecting statistics on child rapes and other crimes. In the last 17 months in North Carolina, 1,170 illegal immigrants have been arrested for 5,675 separate charges of child rape. It doesn’t take a genius to recognize that

 HB 328 opens the door to more of this terrible pain and suffering for children and parents.

Even voters in liberal Oregon voted down a November 2014 Referendum proposal to give driver permits to illegal immigrants by 68 to 32 percent. The idea polls even worse in North Carolina.

HB 328 is not a trivial violation of public trust and honest government. No North Carolina legislator should vote for it.

Climate Activists in Meltdown as ‘Skeptic’ Gets Australian Government Funding

Via Bill

AFP / Adrian Dennis

Climate change activists have reacted hysterically to news that a think tank run by “sceptical environmentalist” Bjorn Lomborg is to be given state funding by Australia. (h/t Bishop Hill)

Earlier this month the Australian government announced the awarding of a $4 million grant to the University of Western Australia’s (UWA) business school for the establishment of the Australia Consensus Centre, in partnership with Lomborg’s Copenhagen Consensus Centre.

According to the UWA, the program will aim to “identify the key challenges facing Australia and the world”, and advise the government on potential policy reforms and other interventions that will deliver the most cost-effective solutions.”

Predictably, environmentalists have reacted with fury, taking to Twitter to brand Lomborg a ‘denier’ and question why the Abbott government was handing out the funds.

Some of the reactions include:
