How mass migration hurts us all:
No, it´s not the Mail saying this,
but the verdict of a top Left-
wing economist from Cambridge

Daily Mail [UK], by Steve Doughty

Original Article

Posted By:Ribicon, 8/1/2014 12:41:32 AM

Mass immigration will damage the living standards of everyone in the country as minor economic benefits are outweighed by the social pressures of a relentlessly rising population, one of Britain’s most eminent Left-wing economists declared yesterday. Professor Robert Rowthorn, Emeritus Professor of Economics at Cambridge University and a longstanding adviser to Whitehall departments, said the economic advantages of immigration are ‘unlikely to be very large’. But the downside – from building on the green belt to the overcrowding of cities – means that the consequences of large-scale immigration ‘are mostly negative for the

Well, well. Anyone who´s seen an area transformed by "newcomers" knows all of this to be true, but to hear such from a former Marxist professor is unusual indeed. Bravo.

Duh. You don´t need an economist to say what citizens are enforced to endure each and every day because of socialist policies.

Newark — An unidentified male was gunned down in Newark Saturday night, the third slaying in less than 48 hours in the state’s largest city. Newark police found the victim dead on Bergen Street, between Clinton and Madison avenues, after responding to reports of a shooting around 9 p.m., Acting Essex County Prosecutor Carolyn A. Murray and city Police Director Eugene Venable said in a statement. (Snip) The shooting came after two other killings in the city Friday night into early Saturday, authorities said. Those incidents were apparently unrelated. Tyquil Whitehead, 18, was shot and killed in Newark’s North Ward around 10 p.m.,

For years, Christina Marshall was convinced she would start her own company. She studied entrepreneurship at USC´s business school with the hope of launching a clothing company for full-figured women. But after graduating two years ago, the 31-year-old chose a more conventional career as a brand manager at Kraft Foods in Chicago. (Snip) The image of the U.S. as bursting with entrepreneurial zeal, it turns out, is more myth than reality. In truth, the rate at which new companies are being formed has fallen steadily for more than three decades. The decline has occurred nationwide — even in Silicon Valley.

Sitting at her street vending booth with products arrayed neatly on a sequined purple tablecloth, Jackie Lloyd reflects nostalgically on the days when she had a steady salary and regular hours. That was four years ago, before the 39-year-old was laid off from her job as an elementary school cafeteria worker and mounting bills forced her to venture into self-employment. Now the Pico-Union resident hops from location to location, selling body oils, shea butter, soap and incense. She moves when nearby businesses complain or she feels unsafe. Some days, her sales bring in $150.

A former USC professor once on the FBI´s 10 Most Wanted fugitives list pleaded guilty Friday to flying to the Philippines and having sex with several underage boys he groomed online. Walter Lee Williams, 65, admitted engaging in illegal sexual contact with minors in foreign places, entering the plea during a brief appearance before U.S. District Judge Phillip S. Gutierrez. As part of a plea, federal prosecutors agreed to recommend that the onetime eminent professor of gender and sexuality studies serve no more than five years in a federal prison. He also would be subject to 10 years supervision upon release

Paterson - A 38-year-old Prospect Park man who authorities say headed a multimillion-dollar Paterson-based drug ring that distributed kilos of heroin every week to major suppliers on the East Coast was sentenced to up to 15 years in state prison on Friday, according to Acting Attorney General John J. Hoffman. Segundo Garcia, 38, will not be eligible for parole for a minimum of six years under the sentence, after he pleaded guilty to first-degree drug trafficking charge last December. ”Garcia was supplying death and destruction in bulk, and the dealers he supplied in Paterson put poison in the veins

The “Squeegee Man” of Midtown was busted again — his 226th arrest — for illegally washing car windows Friday evening, a law-enforcement source told The Post. Gregg Washington, 40, was caught washing motorists’ windshields at the corner of West 42nd Street and 9th Avenue around 4:30 p.m., a source said. “It appears as if he moved towards the West Side because of the heat he was getting [on the East Side],” another police source said. Washington was booked at the Midtown South Precinct, just blocks away from where he was arrested. The suspect was featured on the front page of

East Orange — A man was killed on a city street just after midnight in an apparent robbery attempt, authorities said. Edwin Gibson was killed outside his Rhode Island Avenue home, while his 14-year-old daughter was inside, said authorities. (Snip) A neighbor said he heard no shots – but woke up to the bright crime-scene lights near the street’s intersection with Freeman Avenue.

Newark — Maria Fernandes, who died as she napped in her car between part-time jobs last month, became a symbol for low-paid workers. But today, friends remembered her as a strong woman with a zest for life. "She wasn´t a sad woman who worked and worked. I want people to know she was full of life. She was caring, she was sweet and she was sassy as ever," Fernandes´ friend, Dar´Shay White said at a funeral service today.

The rare moments Christos Sourovelis can take a break from running his own painting business, he can be found toiling away on his family´s dream house in the suburbs of Philadelphia. "I´m a working guy. I work every day, six days a week, even seven if I have to," Sourovelis says. One day this past March, without warning, the government took his house away, even though he and his wife, Markella, have never been charged with a crime or accused of any wrongdoing. "I was so upset thinking somebody´s going to take my house for nothing. That makes me crazy,"

Immigration to Britain
´cuts Romanian unemployment´
Telegraph [UK], by Matthew Holehouse    Original Article
Posted By: Ribicon- 9/5/2014 9:44:58 AM     Post Reply
Immigration to Britain is good for Romania because it reduces the country’s unemployment rate, the country’s president has suggested. Traian Basescu said the exodus of Romanian nationals to the UK had improved his country’s balance of payments as they sent money back home. “The reality that a part of Romanian peoples decide to find more work outside of Romania is something helping us very much – maintaining the unemployment at a reasonable rate," he said. He said the money sent back by Romanian workers had supported the economy, saying: “During the crisis period the remittances for Romania practically kept our

Not everyone in the NYPD got the “drunkyard” memo. Members of the Brooklyn South Vice Squad raided two illegal nightclubs set up in junkyards this past weekend — then got told by the local precinct to let them stay open, The Post has learned. Cops burst into the open-air watering holes in East Flatbush around 3 a.m. Saturday, law enforcement sources said. When no one could produce a liquor license, the cops prepared to bust the bartenders and close the clubs, known as Tiki Village and Soca Village. But managers pleaded with the cops to call the 63rd Precinct

Waldo, Fla. — The north Florida town of Waldo has long had a reputation as a speed trap, and it´s no wonder. A small segment of highway that runs through Waldo requires drivers to speed up and slow down six times: 65 mph becomes 55 mph; 55 becomes 45; then goes back to 55; then back down to 45; to 55 again and eventually, 35 mph. AAA named the tiny town between Jacksonville and Gainesville one of only two "traffic traps" nationwide and even placed an attention-getting billboard outside the limits of the town to warn drivers to slow down before

The top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee on Friday said new allegations that U.S. commandos were ordered to “stand down” during the 2012 attack in Benghazi, Libya, aren’t supported by findings from House and Senate investigators. Five commandos who survived the Benghazi attack, which claimed the lives of Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans, made the allegation in a new book, accusing the CIA station chief of delaying a rescue mission. Rep. Dutch Ruppersberger (D-Md.) said lawmakers never came across evidence indicating the station chief had told his team to “stand down” and abort a

Three senior members of the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS) - including an aide to its leader - were killed in a U.S. airstrike in Iraq, a senior Iraqi security official told NBC News Thursday.

Immigrant-rights groups reacted furiously Saturday after the White House made clear President Obama will not take unilateral action on immigration before November’s elections, nodding at the political realities of the issue as he punted on the key policy questions. With a number of key Senate races in GOP-leaning states, Democrats had feared that action now would anger voters and cost them control of the upper chamber, and had privately begged the White House to hold off on any move to halt deportations. But immigration activists said it’s the latest in a series of moves by Mr. Obama to shove their

Are you tired of being lied to yet? My guess is no... because Americans seem to have developed an infinite capacity for patience with a federal government that is increasingly mettlesome, mendacious and menacing.[SNIP] This last Friday night, an interview was aired which should convince American citizens once and for all that their government is not telling the truth about what happened in Libya two years ago. That’s been obvious to many of us for months, but despite the naming of a select committee by the U.S. House of Representatives to investigate what could have happened, what should have happened,

Sen.

"President Obama has openly reaffirmed his unconstitutional plan to nullify our nation’s sovereign laws, issuing executive amnesty and work permits to millions of illegal immigrants. In so doing, he will wipe away American workers’ lawful immigration protections.

When the President and I took office in January of 2009, this nation was in the midst of the greatest economic crisis since the great depression. Our economy had plummeted at a rate of 8% in a single quarter — part of the fastest economic decline any time in the last half century. Millions of families were falling underwater on their homes and threatened with foreclosure. The iconic American automobile industry was under siege.

The book, “Forgetting to Be Afraid,” goes on sale to the general public Tuesday. Copies will be available Monday at a Fort Worth book signing by Davis, the Democratic nominee for governor against Republican Attorney General Greg Abbott.
