Getting Criminal Illegal Immigrants out of America

It’s happened again. An illegal alien deported from this country multiple times returns and kills an American citizen. This time, Indianapolis Colts linebacker Edwin Jackson and his Uber driver were killed by suspected drunk driver Manuel Orrego-Savala, a Guatemalan deported from this country in 2007 and again in 2009. When will we learn that not preventing illegals from entering and roaming free in our country has consequences - in this case, deadly consequences. This senseless killing was noted by President Trump when he tweeted that it was disgraceful that a person illegally in the country killed Jackson. He also tweeted, that “this is just one of many such preventable tragedies. We must get the Dems to get tough on the border, and with illegal immigration, FAST.” [more...]

Is the Market Correction Over?
By Michelle Seiler-Tucker

Whether the sell-off in stocks is over is still a question, but there is an increased attention to inflation and rising rates due to bullish trends in the stock market and the U.S. economy. Investing in stocks and businesses can be a difficult, emotional transaction. It is imperative to review each investment opportunity with scrutiny regardless of consumer confidence and optimism. When evaluating the attractiveness of an investment, it is important to analyze the underlying fundamentals of the business such as its financials, employees, and management. Moreover, it is important to be aware of exogenous factors - competition within the industry, geopolitical influences, and the general state of the economy. [more...]

The Price of Elizabeth Warren’s “Cherokee” Identity Politics
By Daniel Greenfield

I name Elizabeth Warren in the headline, but it's really the left. Elizabeth Warren, who clearly wants to run for president, delivered a professionally written speech at the National Congress of American Indians. The speech ties together two cynical legs that drive the left: 1) Anti-Trumpism - Warren has figured out that her bizarre claim to be Cherokee becomes more politically acceptable if she wraps it in attacks on President Trump's use of the name Pocahontas; 2) The political blackmail of identity politics - Conservatives missed a crucial element in some of the criticism from American Indian activists of Warren. Their criticism had less to do with Warren adopting a fake identity she had no right to than failing to care about Indian issues.  [more...]

Another Way NAFTA Encourages U.S. Firms to Ship Jobs Overseas
It's called 'mandatory arbitration' and is a huge incentive for big corporations to take paychecks to foreign countries
By Michael Stumo

An ironic aspect of the #MeToo movement is the revelation that mandatory arbitration clauses in women’s employment contracts have sometimes helped to keep sexual harassment claims secret. But in our daily lives, we all “agree” to similar mandatory arbitration clauses when downloading software, for example, or accepting a new credit card. Big business forces us to “choose” arbitration rather than public courts to resolve disputes because they say arbitration is less expensive and more efficient. On a larger scale, international trade deals like the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) contain similar “mandatory arbitration clauses” that allow companies to sue foreign governments for changing rules that interfere with their future profit expectations.
