'We make a real contribution to protecting the country,' says commander of all-female spotter unit on Israel's fenced-off border with Egypt. Retired general claims women better suited for patient vigilance required of surveillance
Breaking cover from a lookout point disguised as a dune,
Compassion good. Clear thinking better.
I am told Daniel Henninger of the Wall Street Journal is a nice enough fellow, and I think it pretty likely that it was honorable compassion for the plight of his own college age kids and their contemporaries that motivated him to navigate ideological minefield of WSJ editorial bigotry to publish Meet Generation Jobbed May 8, 2013.
…the political left is getting out ahead of the conservatives on an issue that matters a lot … the seemingly intractable problem of young Americans who can't find jobs…
The left-wing think tank, the Center for American Progress, published a study last month called "The High Cost of Youth Unemployment." This past Sunday, the New York Times carried a deconstruction of the youth unemployment nightmare, and the Huffington Post built its own piece around the Times's analysis...
Our kids are starting to look and sound like Europe's smart kids—despondent and resigned.
Henninger notes the ‘political left’ offers no solutions and neither does he. Apparently he just wants to say how very sad it all is – which is true.
But this means of course he is willfully blinding himself to the impact of excessive immigration on these young people. As I pointed out in Worst Youth Unemployment in 64 Years: Remember Immigration Impact flooding the entry level job market has brutally increased competition and lowered wages across a wide spectrum of employment up to and including STEM graduates.
And of course the 2013 Amnesty/Immigration Acceleration Bill

Jason Richwine, the co-author of a controversial Heritage study that has invited an avalanche of blistering criticism, has resigned from Heritage, the first step in what will be an effort to contain the damage arising from the report.
Richwine’s dissertation and public comments have postulated that Hispanic people have lower IQs than white people.
His work product, however, has not been withdrawn. Still, it is noteworthy that the American Action Network
Massachusetts investigators have developed what they call "mounting evidence," bolstered by "forensic hits," that point to the possible involvement of both Tamerlan Tsarnaev and his younger brother Dzhokhar in a gruesome

Israel's Fence: There, the Government cares.
Thursday’s Senate Judiciary Committee Hearing on the Amnesty Bill made plain that the Democrats are determined to prevent any significant tightening of controls on the Border. Brenda Walker was quite correct describe the process as Legalizing Lawbreaking on a Massive Scale (aka Nearly Open Borders). Marco Rubio’s assurances are worthless. (For more detail on the rejected improvements read The Hill’s account.)
But Brenda caught a very significant statement by Senator Chuck Schumer
North Africa and the Middle East were largely Christian regions until the Muslim hordes swept through in the 6th century and converted by the sword. As a grade-school kid, I never understood how that could work because the confluence of religious conversion and war didn’t seem to fit. Now we can see how the process functions first hand — constant intimidation with the message Join or Die is a very effect method of low-intensity warfare, perfected over centuries of practice by supremacist Muslims.
Someone named Jamelle Bouie at The Daily Beast has committed a gross and outrageous libel against me:
Sick Of Congress? Nevertheless, Keep Those Letters And Cards Coming! (Plus: A Bleg To Patriotic Staffers)
The American Immigration Control Foundation used to publish Immigration Watch, their bi-monthly newsletter. The April/May 2002 (yes, 2002, not 2012!) issue included a letter, attributed to "L.S." in "Cyberspace," that seemed instructive and potentially very useful. It's not available online, so now, at this critical time when its usefulness may be highest, I've transcribed it in its entirety. Here you go:
One of the pleasures of taking a break in France is that when you “French Google” (an enquiry after meaning, not a sexual position) the case of Jason Richwine, currently subject to a public hate session, you get a reassuring collection of articles on fine wines.
A suspicious person might reasonably look away momentarily from the noisy debate on the legalization of (officially) 11 million lawbreaking foreign job thieves and reflect upon the ginormous “future flow” of legal immigrants that continues in perpetuity. Gargantuan unsustainable legal immigration is the real crime against Americans.
