News media updates their fake news story on Trump-related immigration to Canada

This story gave me a smile this morning. The Supreme Court slaps the lower (liberal) courts and reinstates President Trump’s travel ban. Related news: The liberals’ mainstream media division’s past reporting (sorry “reporting” — so much smug, anti-Trump, fake news…) make the mainstream media look all the more idiotic today as they quietly go about […]

Conservative from another land, which also isn’t racist, also says sensible things

Funny how so many liberals in the U.S. are saying they’re going to move to Canada if Trump wins. Aside from Bill Clinton and Donald Trump, who have said nearly identical things on immigration over the years, and aside from just about every sensible person in North America, Australia, or Europe, a leadership candidate for […]

Bill Clinton 1995: apparently he’s an extremist racist and he’s worse than Hitler.

Much of the shrieking and blather coming from liberals and their media division centers around Trump and what he says about immigration. “Illegal aliens?!” What a racist pig you are! There are not “illegal aliens!” They’re undocumented personages! Tell that to Bill.

What do you think the polls say about Trump and his Muslim “ban?”

It’s shocking how much media attention has focussed on …. no let me start again. It’s totally predictable and boring how the media is wall-to-wall reporting on the supposedly universal outrage over Donald Trump’s Muslim moratorium blather. Most of the “news” “reporting” has been done sneeringly, from way, way up upon a very high horse, in the most smug, […]

Romney Doing the Job the Republican Establishment Won’t Do

The actual Republican Establishment –- political consultants, The Wall Street Journal, corporate America, former Bush advisers and television pundits — are exhorting Mitt Romney to flip-flop on his very non-Establishment position on illegal immigration. Both as governor of Massachusetts and as a presidential candidate, Romney has supported a fence on the border, E-Verify to ensure […]

In Canada: Let’s break silence and talk immigration

The release this week of Census 2011 provides Canadians with a broad picture of the country’s population at 33.5 million, and its urban makeup. Between 2006 and 2011, the rate of Canada’s population growth at 5.9% was the highest among G8 countries. The engine for this growth, according to Statistics Canada, remains immigrants, together with […]

Immigration in the face of globalization

In 1958, John F. Kennedy, then a U.S. senator, published a small book aptly titled A Nation of Immigrants. The world was much different then, as new states in Asia and Africa emerged, while European colonialism retreated. The West was in the midst of a post-war economic recovery, and there was demand for low-wage workers […]

Lobby’s arguments don’t add up

The main argument of the pro-immigration lobby, as I pointed out last week, is the net economic benefits from immigration outweigh social costs over time. This argument has been turned into an axiom — self-evident truth — by the pro-immigration lobby, and is broadcast by the mainstream media. Anyone or any group who dare question […]

Pro-immigration rallying cry: ‘Let them in!’

Behind numbers lies politics when it comes to the subject of immigration in recent years. As I indicated in my previous column, the trend line of immigrants arriving in Canada slopes upward. What this means is simple: The numbers of new arrivals into the country bears little relationship to how the economy is performing. The […]

Immigration trends – by the numbers

The headline on my column last week read, “Immigration isn’t just about numbers.” But numbers indeed tell the story of how the trend line for immigrants arriving in Canada over the past 25 years slopes upward. In 2010, some 280,681 immigrants — or new arrivals as permanent residents, in the language of the Ministry of […]

Immigration isn’t just about numbers

The big issue in Canada, as in other western liberal democracies, next to the economy is immigration. It is of concern to everyone, yet it is a conversation spoiler whenever the subject is raised in private or public gatherings. But it demands attention, and we must learn to discuss immigration and its implications for our […]

Entitled Americans Vs Cuban Cigar Maker

Once again this spring my daughter Regis and I were fortunate to spend two weeks hunting bears in Alaska with four Purple Heart recipients. As God would have it, three out of the four warriors were able to let the air out of some beautiful black bears and, thankfully, we got the majority of these […]

Immigration’s the elephant in the room

Politics in an advanced democracy is not much different than politics in a less advanced democracy, as in contemporary Russia, save for the niceties of how the political contest for the prize of forming government is conducted. It is during an election campaign when the mechanics of democracy becomes more or less visible. The players […]
