Oh, the ups and downs of billionaires!

Mexican telecoms mogul Carlos Slim (owner of Telmex, Telcel and América Movil) was the world’s wealthiest man for several years. But in March of 2014, Forbes magazine announced that Slim had dropped to second place, with Microsoft mogul Bill Gates back in the number one position, which he had held before Slim.  It’s not that Slim wound up begging with a tin cup on a street corner, he was still worth a cool US$70 billion.

In the world of billionaires, however, things go up and down. Forbes reported on July 15th (see here) that Slim had moved back on top of the world, once again the world’s richest man, with a net worth of US$79.6 billion. Bill Gates, on the other hand, was just going to have to get by on a net worth of US$79.1 billion.

On September 18th, voters in Scotland are scheduled to go to the polls and vote in a very straightforward referendum. Unlike the confusing referendum held in Puerto Rico in 2012 ,  the Scotland referendum poses a very simple question to voters.

The question on the ballot is simply “Should Scotland be an independent country?”. There are only two choices for the voter–Yes or No.

The question is simple, but the details are complicated. If Scotland were to leave the UK, many issues would have to be negotiated–the North Sea oil money, the UK national debt and Scotland’s part of it, the currency, citizenship, the status of UK military bases in Scotland.

What about NATO and the European Union?

Would an independent Scotland have a monarch?

As for what remains of the United Kingdom, would the UK have to change its official name again?

The state of Oklahoma is now one of the country’s most Republican-dominated states.

Consider that, in both the 2008 and 2012 presidential elections,  the GOP won every single county.   That’s right, of the 77 counties of Oklahoma, the Republican candidate won every single one.  That’s rather impressive.

In Oklahoma’s state government,  Mary  Fallin, the governor,  is Republican,  the Lieutenant Governor, the Secretary of State, the State Auditor and Inspector, the Attorney General, the State Treasurer, The State School Superintendent, the Labor Commissioner, the insurance commissioner, and all four  corporation commissioners, are all Republicans.

Republicans have a majority in both the state Senate and House of Representatives.

Oklahoma’s congressional delegation is 100% Republican – five Republican congressmen and two Republican senators.

Sadly, Oklahoma’s congressional delegation does not show great leadership on the  National Question.   The party’s strength in Oklahoma could allow the state’s senators and congressmen to be leaders  in the defense of the historic American nation, which is currently being dispossessed by mass immigration and multiculturalism.  But they  aren’t. They don’t show such leadership on the National Question.

What is the purpose of the military? Is it to protect the nation, or to promote diversity and make its officers feel warm and fuzzy?

The Washington Times has an article about U.S. Army sociologists being worried about too many white officers in combat units and not enough black officers.

Is this really a problem?

Bear in mind that the U.S. military is an all-volunteer military, and that recruits even choose the branches and specialties they enter.

Combat units have a higher proportion of white soldiers because that’s where the white recruits go.  Black recruits tend to go into other types of units.

So what’s the problem?

No self-respecting country allows a foreign head of state  to promote ethnic unrest and claim jurisdiction  over citizens  and territory of the host country. Yet that is precisely what President Enrique Pena Nieto of Mexico just did in California—and the Republican Party was utterly silent.

And this is not the first time a Mexican president has behaved thusly.

It’s truly amazing what the United States allows Mexican presidents to do and say on on U.S. soil.

In contrast, back in 1967, French President Charles de Gaulle  had to leave  Canada for saying  “Vive le Québec libre! ” in a public speech on Canadian soil.   Canadian Prime Minister Lester B. Pearson strongly defended Canadian sovereignty.  Within a few days, President de Gaulle was on a plane back to France.

In contrast, in  today’s U.S.A., Mexican presidents, and Mexican officials in general, openly meddle in our immigration policy and claim jurisdiction over Mexican-Americans.    Not only do our leaders not condemn such behavior, they actually facilitate it.

It’s that time of year again, when the kids traipse off to the old brick school house for another year of American education.    In my family, we’re all in the public school system, my sons as students, my wife as employee, and myself as a Spanish teacher.  So we’re right in the thick of it.

In order to ring in the new school year, the folks at the  major Mainstream Media organ called  the Associated Press ran an exciting and informative article about the exciting demographic changes and challenges taking place in our nation’s public schools.   It’s entitled WHITE STUDENTS NO LONGER TO BE MAJORITY IN SCHOOL by Kimberly Hefling and Jesse Holland.

The  white American majority is being driven into minority status, so a look at the school system gives us a preview of what’s in store in the future.  After all, these kids are going to grow up and be adults.

Even the Mainstream Media cannot hide the fact that there are serious problems with the diversification of our educational system, and thus, with our country.   The Hefling/Howard article touches on many of these problems and is worth a look, though a careful reader must read between the lines.

The government of Mexico has finally passed historic legislation enacting energy reform.  

The reform opens up Mexico’s energy sector to private companies which can bid for the rights to drill and share in the profits, whereas before they could only be subcontracted.  Another goal is to make the state oil company PEMEX (Petróleos Mexicanos) more transparent, autonomous and productive.  And, the private production of electricity is allowed by the new legislation.

It is indeed historic legislation, but it still remains to be seen how well it is going to work out.  It would be prudent to take a look at the potential pitfalls that the legislation’s enactment could face.  Hopefully they can be, as much as possible, avoided.

Texas Governor Rick Perry has called up the National Guard to be deployed on the state’s border with Mexico.    As a veteran of the Texas Army National Guard myself, I have confidence in the Texas National Guard, but not much confidence in Governor Perry.

To put it in a nutshell, Rick Perry is a big talker but his record shows that he’s done much as governor and presidential candidate  to encourage illegal immigration.   I just don’t trust Perry on this issue.

However, I would love to be proven wrong.    If Rick Perry would really commit himself to securing the border, that would be great

It’s obvious that the federal government has not sealed the border, and has no intention of doing so.  Therefore, it is incumbent upon the government of Texas to take action and secure and seal its border with Mexico.

And I have a proposal to do exactly that.

The goal would be for Texas to seal its 1200-mile border with Mexico, to prevent illegal crossings.    Seal your border, Texas!

Drastic?  Maybe.  But drastic times call for drastic measures.

Here’s a great example of hypocrisy.  The Mexican Foreign Ministry is throwing a hissy fit over Texas Governor Rick Perry’s  supposed “militarization” of the border by his deploying the National Guard there.   And yet, as I’ve documented in a previous article, the Mexican side of the border is already militarized, by the Mexican military!

The truth of the matter is simply that the government of Mexico doesn’t want the U.S. to secure its border!

As for the National Guard deployment, as a veteran of the Texas Army National Guard myself, I know that the Guard could be an effective force on the border, IF it were to have a clear mission and the political will to back it up.

Rick Perry though, doesn’t inspire much confidence in this regard, as he has done too much in the past to promote illegal immigration.   His recent rhetoric doesn’t sound too convincing.  But, I’d love for Perry to prove me wrong.

Mass immigration (both legal and illegal) is driven in part by the interests of U.S. billionaires for whom cheap labor is more important than the future of our nation.

Examples include Bill Gates, the Koch Brothers,  Mark Zuckerberg, Paul Singer, George Soros, Michael Bloomberg, Sheldon Adelson and too many others.   (Notice that the list includes both Democrats and Republicans).

One prominent billionaire pushing open borders is not an American.  I refer to Mexican billionaire Carlos Slim, one of the richest men in the world.

The latest issue of the Social Contract magazine contains articles about these open borders billionaires.    My article in that issue is about Carlos Slim, Mexico’s richest man and a promoter of mass Mexican emigration to the United States.  Not only does Slim promote such emigration, he also profits from it.
