On his Wednesday podcast, comedian Adam Carolla blamed Mexican immigrants for overwhelming and destroying California’s troubled public-education system. “Schools are f***ing ruined, and schools are ruined — not because they’re out of money, but because we’re flooded with Mexicans, and they’re not into studying,” Carolla said. “They don’t come from that culture, and we’re not asking them to change. That’s the thing. We have a culture that is not focused on the schoolwork. It’s a different culture. It’s, by the way, why their culture is failing, and their country, ironically — it’s why they’re here.
Comments: This is a nice rant. Probably won´t win Mr. Carolla many friends in the neighborhood he resides in.
One thing I´ve noticed for years when I talk with people from Mexico is that they just shrug and accept corruption from their federal and local governments. It´s almost as if they expect all politicians to be corrupt. This might explain why they vote for Democrats and aren´t too bothered by things like bankruptcy, dishonesty and negligence that results in fatalities in our current administration.
As long as the government hands out bennies, a Dictator for Life isn´t worth the concern.
Just read an article below that claimed that Mexico was really doing well financially. So what is with their people straggling over here for freebies? I am sick and tired of them begging on street corners or outside of a mall. Go home and make your country live up to that article. We also have canadians sneaking in here for medical treatment - not saying that they do not pay for it, but government running anything turns into something rotten.
The low morals and low standards are a win-win for the corrupt DimWits who want them here.
Everybody´s in on the cheating and corruption and can benefit from it. Or so they think.
Eventually there will be nothing left to plunder. When America is no longer recognizable, the Mexicans will say (as they already do) - "Hey man, give us back the territories you took from Mexico. We´ve already ruined it anyways, man... It´s, like... ours!"
Carolla is right. Mexico is not, and never has been, a beacon of hope. No one wants to emigrate to Mexico, or any other third world country. And yes, our culture is better, exactly for the reasons he stated.
Liberals let them "squat" here to buy their votes. What great accomplishments have they ever added to our great nation? Fruit-picking? Yardwork? Making beds? Washing dishes? Killing each other in our urban barrios? Have you ever seen their placement scores in community colleges? I have. Its abysmal! Thanks again to the left for illegal immigration, no border patrol, and foolish multi-lingual multi-culturalism...Fooey! LaRaza mi culo!
The maipulative, unethical and questionably corrupt Congress, -delegated by the Constitution to fund their legislation, ...plus the failure to simply enforce the law by the Presidential Administrations for over 2 decades, are both equally responsible for allowing the ILLEGAL immigration debacle.
Also, they are responsible for the general disrespect for law enforcement as a direct result of their neglect regarding ILLEGAL aliens throughout the past 2 decades. ...Instead of the law being efficiently & equally enforced, it has become a political football used by beltway pols for subjective favoritism for their own re-election votes. mmm mmm mmm
Not really. It´s the unions with their strangle hold on the government that are the biggest problem. They have manipulated every situation, so anything the Mexicans have done is downstream of that.
It may be unpopular, but Mexicans, for the most part, come here to work and they do. Unfortunately, the corrupt Cali government (corrupted by union money) puts out the welcome mat to Mexican gangs and grifters too. Plenty of every race in those two categories, but at least legal citizens are somewhat known.
#5 - Yes, and one reason Mexico is doing well is because millions of legal and illegal Mexicans in the US transfer the billions in cash they have earned here legally and illegally back to Mexico. Another reason the Mexican gov´t wants open borders with us on our border - but not for itself on its own southern border.
The discussion began regarding Californias´ low ranking (50th) in how it is run financially. There is a lot more than this clip and it´s at the beginning of the show. Very good show. Listen for yourself.
On Tuesday’s broadcast of Fox News Channel’s “The O’Reilly Factor,” Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer insisted the divide within the Republican Party has been exaggerated, adding that Republicans disagree over strategy but not ideology. “[I] think this whole thing is as you say very much blown up by the liberal media because it’s a great dramatic story,” Krauthammer said. “But here’s the fundamental contradiction. I think this analysis is wrong. It’s fundamentally wrong for this reason: The difference between what are being called the hard right and the moderates, the RINOs and the true believers, is really one
During the online-only portion of Fox News Channel’s “Special Report” on Wednesday night, Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer laid out his theory on what Obamacare’s real intended purpose is: an instrument to redistribute wealth. Krauthammer made that claim in his column last week, but he explained how it works in practice to host Bret Baier and co-panelists former New Jersey Superior Court Judge Andrew Napolitano and The Hill associate editor A.B. Stoddard. That panel was presented with a viewer who asked what would happen if an individual couldn’t pay an insurance provider in the event of some
On Tuesday’s broadcast of Hugh Hewitt’s radio show, MSNBC “Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough hammered President Barack Obama for what he called lies during the sales job for his 2010 health care law. Scarborough was asked by Hewitt if he had any idea how many people would ultimately lose their health care coverage because of that law. Scarborough replied by saying many more Americans would be impacted by that law than what then-President George W. Bush had said in his 2003 state of the union speech regarding Iraq trying to procure yellow cake uranium from Niger.
On Wednesday’s edition of Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show,” Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer faced off against left-leaning show anchor Jon Stewart on conservative ideology and the way it is presented. In this rare appearance on Stewart’s program, Krauthammer was promoting his new book, “Things That Matter: Three Decades of Passions, Pastimes, and Politics,” and explained how in working on the book he realized when he had made the transformation from liberal to conservative. STEWART: Thirty years — do you ever look back on some of these writings and think, ‘What was I thinking?’ KRAUTHAMMER: It’s worse than that.
At an event in Birmingham, Ala. Monday night, former Johns Hopkins neurosurgeon Ben Carson revealed that he had received a visit from the Internal Revenue Service following his much-noted remarks at a National Prayer Breakfast earlier this year. “I had my first encounter with the IRS this year, unsurprisingly after the prayer breakfast,” Carson told an audience that at the annual Business Council of Alabama Chairman’s Dinner, according to a report from Cliff Sims of the Montgomery, Ala.-based Yellowhammer News. Carson’s February speech February made him a conservative darling for criticizing President Barack Obama’s 2010 health care reform law
WASHINGTON — Tennessee Republican Sen. Bob Corker called out fellow Republicans Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas and Sen. Mike Lee of Utah Thursday, accusing them of delaying a vote on the bill to fund the government and prevent a government shutdown to suit their own desires for publicity. Cruz, earlier this week, held the floor for over 21 hours, speaking in defense of defunding Obamacare with that government funding bill. He asked other Republican senators to join him in voting against moving forward on a bill passed by the House , which would fund the government while defunding Obamacare.
During an interview with conservative talker Laura Ingraham on Tuesday, Sen. Mike Lee defended the much-criticized “defund Obamacare” strategy that he and Sen. Ted Cruz are spearheading. “My job, Laura, is to do everything I can to protect the people from bad law and bad policy, which we have in Obamacare,” Lee said. “I can’t look at this and say because this law is unpopular, because this law is going to be rejected ultimately by the American people as unworkable, and because that could inure to the benefit of the Republican Party, that justifies me in staying
On Dennis Miller’s radio show on Monday, Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer said that because of American weakness in the Middle East, “the chances of an Israeli strike on Iran have risen, are probably double.” Krauthammer, author of “Things That Matter: Three Decades of Passions, Pastimes, and Politics,” called the United States’ position in the region “the weakest” in memory and blamed that on President Barack Obama. “We’re the weakest we’ve been in the region in memory,” he said. “The big deal in the region was 1970, when Egypt kicked out the Soviets and aligned itself
On Saturday on the Fox News Channel, former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton harshly criticized President Barack Obama handling of the United States’ involvement in Syria, calling him the weakest president since James Buchanan, Abraham Lincoln’s predecessor. “This is absolutely stunning,” Bolton said. “I’ve been trying to fill in the blank of the following sentence: ‘Barack Obama is the weakest president since…’ And I have to say, the best I can come up with is James Buchanan who watched the country dissolve into the Civil War. We’re watching the collapse of American influence in the Middle East
Conservative columnist Charles Krauthammer predicted on Friday that should President Barack Obama make a misstep when dealing with Syria, he could spark a “major regional war.” In his column published in Friday’s Washington Post, Krauthammer alluded to the “guns of August,” a reference to 1914 and the build-up that led to the start of World War I. That reference was a comparison to the current situation in Middle East involving Syria and a pending U.S. strike over the use of chemical weapons, and how those seemingly isolated events could unfold into something bigger.
On his radio show on Thursday night, conservative talk show host Hugh Hewitt lobbied National Review columnist and occasional fill-in host for Rush Limbaugh to make a run for a New Hampshire U.S. Senate seat against the current incumbent, Democrat Sen. Jeanne Shaheen. Hewitt on Friday had announced the launch of SteynforSenate.com, where one can sign a petition to encourage him to run as well as be notified how to contribute to his campaign in the event he does run. But in his regular appearance on Thursday, Steyn expressed his disappointment in the lack of the quality of candidates
Conservative talker Mark Levin blasted Republican House leaders on his Tuesday radio show, warning that by attacking more conservative members of the GOP, Speaker John Boehner and prominent Reps. Paul Ryan and Eric Cantor are throwing away the 2014 midterm elections. Levin, author of “The Liberty Amendments: Restoring the American Republic,” said the GOP establishment’s disparagement of conservative colleagues, could be a disaster in a midterm “turn out the base” election. “This is my great fear,” Levin said. “My great fear is that guys like Boehner, and quite frankly Paul Ryan, and Eric Cantor
I have never been much of a conspiracy theorist. For me it was always Oswald by himself from the Texas School Book Depository and nothing in the intervening fifty years has disabused me of this notion. For the most part, I’m an Occam’s Razor kind of guy — the most obvious explanation is likely to be true. (Snip) To put it bluntly, Occam’s Razor has moved. Things that were once possibilities now seem almost certainties to me. Principal among those is that Obama’s academic records are perpetually unavailable for a reason — and that reason is most likely that they reveal
One of President Obama´s chief political assets has been his ability to excite young people like almost no politician in history. But the days of America´s youth fawning over the president are over. A new Harvard University Institute of Politics poll released Wednesday confirms what other surveys have shown in recent months: Millennials have soured on Obama so much this year that their opinion of him largely mirrors the American public´s. Even though Obama does not ever have to face another election, he should be worried about the findings for a couple of reasons, which we will dive into momentarily.
A stunning new study unveiled on Fox News´ Hannity finds that President Barack Obama’s White House calendar records just one face-to-face meeting between Obama and his Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius in the more than three-and-a-half years leading up to the disastrous Obamacare launch. The startling statistic comes from a new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) analysis of Obama’s own official White House calendar, as well as the Politico presidential calendar, and raises new questions about Obama’s executive leadership and management throughout the implementation of his singular legislative achievement. More alarming still, the president’s schedule lists 277 private
[Video] President Obama on Wednesday declared that addressing income inequality would be the focus of “all” of the White House’s efforts “for the rest of my presidency.” In a sweeping address that touched on raising the minimum wage, investing in infrastructure and ending tax breaks for the wealthy, Obama warned that the American economy has become “profoundly unequal,” declaring economic mobility the “challenge of our time.” “The combined trends of increasing inequality and decreasing mobility pose a fundamental threat to the American dream, our way of life, and what we stand for around the globe,” he said in an hour-long
Just over two weeks ago, MSNBC host Martin Bashir delivered a harsh piece of commentary that culminated in the suggestion that someone should “s-h-i-t” in former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin‘s (R-AK) mouth. Bashir offered an abject apology on his next broadcast, but a chorus of critics continued to demand action against the host. After a reported “vacation” for the host earlier this week, Bashir announced, Wednesday afternoon, that MSNBC and Martin Bashir are parting ways. Here’s the statement from Martin Bashir, via email: After making an on-air apology, I asked for permission to take some additional time out around the Thanksgiving holiday. Upon
Speaker John Boehner said his party should support gay Republican congressional candidates and urged his colleagues to “be a little more sensitive” when running against women. “Some of our members just aren’t as sensitive as they ought to be,” Boehner said. When asked if he thinks his party should support gay candidates, Boehner simply said: “I do.”
Amid an array of “knock-out” attacks against a number of Jews in Brooklyn’s Crown Heights neighborhood, a city councilwoman pointed to the success of the Jewish community as triggering the aggression. Councilwoman-elect Laurie Cumbo emphasized that while she “admire[s] the Jewish community immensely” for its work ethic, black teens may see it differently. “While I personally regard this level of tenacity, I also recognize that for others, the accomplishments of the Jewish community triggers feelings of resentment, and a sense that Jewish success is not also their success,” Cumbo, who was recently elected, wrote in a letter. Chief among the issues
Hardly a week goes by without Hillary Clinton receiving another award. Last month she was named a “Global Champion” by the International Medical Corps, received the American Patriot Award at the National Defense University Foundation and the Hermandad Award from the Mexican American Leadership Initiative. [Snip] At this rate, if a bunch of elderly left-wing Swedes toss her the Nobel Peace Prize early on, the way they did to Obama, it will barely rate mention among all the other glittering trophies that have been bestowed on a woman whose only actual accomplishment was being married to a crooked governor with
America is facing a wave of strikes by its fast-food workers on Thursday a day after Barack Obama warned that inequality in the USA had soared to the point that it now posed "a fundamental threat to the American dream". Low-paid workers in McDonalds, Kentucky Fried Chicken and other fast-food outlets in 100 cities across America were due to start rolling strikes to protest at the low level of America´s $7.25 (£4.45) federal minimum wage. The strikes are the latest part of a mushrooming publicity campaign for higher wages among those working so-called "McJobs", with fast-food restaurants seen as a
The world premiere of the “Ballad for Trayvon Martin for Orchestra and Jazz Quartet” is set for tonight. Princeton University’s director of its jazz-studies program composed the work in honor of the Florida teen. Anthony D. J. Branker told the Star-Ledger that the piece is intended to “be a form of healing” after Martin’s death and the controversial court case that followed it. The ballad, which will be performed by the university’s official orchestra and jazz ensemble, is intended to be a tribute to victims of racial violence, Branker explained. He hopes that the performance will be “one that speaks to
Last summer on his $100 million family tour of Africa, Barack Obama hoped for a priceless photo op with Nelson Mandela, the ailing freedom pioneer who went from prison cell to the presidency of South Africa. Mandela´s family suggested that wouldn’t happen. So, the Obamas did a photo op in Mandela´s former prison cell. Which Obama’s White House quickly tweeted upon word of the icon´s passing at 95. [Skip] But Obama was also caught staring at television coverage of Mandela’s passing, which became Obama’s Photo of the Day.
A new report from the Texas-based Quorum Report, published by longtime Texas journalist Harvey Kronberg, says that House Speaker John Boehner plans to push amnesty legislation through the House, after the primary filing deadline for candidates. The move would prevent Tea Party from challenging GOP lawmakers who support amnesty in 2014. Scott Braddock reported on Tuesday that “in recent weeks, various Texas business interests have told Quorum Report that Boehner has been telling them that he will start holding immigration votes not long after the filing deadline has passed.”
