Renowned Oxford-trained historian Niall Ferguson recounts his recent experience of becoming an American citizen. His unique impressions are both moving and surprising — even to him.
The common narrative today is that after decades of globalism, hard-hearted Americans now seek to close the nation’s borders to new immigrants. But the truth is that the United States maintains the most generous immigration policies in the world. However, as CRTV host and author of “Invasion” and “Sold Out” Michelle Malkin explains, a few ill-conceived immigration policies are threatening to destroy the American Dream for Americans and aspiring Americans alike.
An discussion/argument I keep hearing goes like this:
Obama is a hardcore leftist, thus all his failed policies fail on purpose in order to sow chaos and create an emergency that, according to Obama—and every two-bit banana republic El Presidente—demands forceful action. In short: what seems to be managerial ineptitude is a cover for further power grabs.
The other side of the argument is that Obama and his army of bureaucrats are in over their heads, a Praetorian guard of Marxist ideologues who wallow in classroom theory, but have zero experience in the real world of cause and effect.
This either/or argument misses the larger truth.
