Patrick J. Buchanan: Immigration: How the GOP Lost Middle America - "If Bush I had built that border fence back in 1992 and declared a moratorium on legal immigration that fall, as many implored him to do, the party of the Bushes would not be facing its demise well before midcentury."

Austen Layard: Anthropology’s Obsession with African Origins - "The evidence for significant cultural advancements in Europe earlier than anywhere else in the world is largely ignored by scholars and the public alike, because it does not fit the politically-motivated idea that humanity was an African invention and that the human brain was born there, after which it has remained fixed and resistant to all effects of evolution."

Brown tells Californians to conserve amid drought - (The Dem-GOP Drought Preparation Plan for any region of the nation that might need one: Endless redoublings of US population numbers, by pumping in ever more people from the Third World, plus their offspring.)
Brown tells Californians to conserve amid drought
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Gov. Jerry Brown provided some very practical guidance for Californians amid a deepening drought: Take shorter showers, turn off the water while brushing teeth, and "don't flush more than you need to."
"Make no mistake, this drought is a big wakeup call," Brown said Thursday in downtown Los Angeles before meeting with local water district officials. "Hopefully it's going to rain. If it doesn't, we're going to have to act in a very strenuous way in every part of the state to get through."
The governor's pragmatic plea came as wet weather finally moved through northern portions of the state, which has been in an extraordinary dry period during what is normally the time for rain and snow.
But the stingy storm system was squeezing out only dribs and drabs of moisture in most areas.

Ann Coulter: GOP Crafts Plan to Wreck the Country, Lose Voters - "How are Republicans going to square that circle? It's not their position on amnesty that immigrants don't like; it's Republicans' support for small government, gun rights, patriotism, the Constitution and capitalism."
GOP CRAFTS PLAN TO WRECK THE COUNTRY, LOSE VOTERS
As House Republicans prepare to sell out the country on immigration this week, Phyllis Schlafly has produced a stunning report on how immigration is changing the country. The report is still embargoed, but someone slipped me a copy, and it's too important to wait.
Leave aside the harm cheap labor being dumped on the country does to the millions of unemployed Americans. What does it mean for the Republican Party? . . .
Brenton Sanderson: Is there a 'War on White Australia'? - "The push by activist Jews for ever-tighter restrictions on free speech in Australia has been an important front in their broader war on White Australia. It has been a critical part of the suite of ideologies and policies that Jewish activists have deployed to ensure the dispossession and disempowerment of an increasingly imperiled White Australian majority. Of course this simply mirrors the tactics of organised Jewry throughout the West."
5 key regions that require more attention from the US - (Black controlled South Africa and Zimbabwe, formerly Rhodesia, will continue to collapse back onto the Stone Age. As for 'fastest growing,' there are a lot natural resources others are willing to pay for, and growth rate is being measured against a near-zero baseline. As in Zimbabwe and SA, low IQ, crime, corruption and violence will continue to work their will, sadly.)
5 key regions that require more attention from the US
While Secretary of State John Kerry’s focus on forging a peace deal that ensures the security of Israel and the dignity of the Palestinians is a worthy goal, it's a long shot. He should pursue vital US interests in Africa, Asia, and the broaderMiddle East region, among others.
The following regions and issues are among those critical to both short- and long-term US interests. They should draw greater US attention and diplomatic efforts.
US interests are challenged by rising tensions in NortheastAsia between US allies Japan and South Korea, territorial disputes in the South China Sea, a rising and increasingly assertive China, and a petulant and dangerous North Korea. Trade promotion authority and aTrans-Pacific Partnership deal remain important initiatives to pursue, with the prospect of solidifying the region.
There is a growing presence of Al Qaeda franchises across Africa and the Sahel. Conflicts in South Sudan, the Central African Republic, and Congo, among other countries, threaten stability and have created humanitarian crises.
At the same time, the continent is home to some of the fastest growing economies in the world, presenting opportunities for US investment and trade. . . .
