Genuine Debate

February 7, 2016

All too often the choices offered to the American public come down to differences of packaging. Would you rather vote for the interventionist, open borders, chubby white guy, or the interventionist, open borders, svelte Hispanic male? The media’s relentless denial of the facts and refusal to acknowledge alternative points of view only entrenches the failed policies that millions of Americans live with on a daily basis.

That’s why the question posed above-by one of the many victims of illegal alien crime-needs to be heard. You can listen to some of the other questions-none of which were broached during last night’s Republican presidential debate, it should be noted-by going to the website of the Center for Immigration Studies. It will give you a taste of what a debate might look like if we had media willing to be honest interrogators, instead of megaphones for their own preferred policy choices.

 

 

 

 

The Trojan Horse

The Trojan Horse

 

Even as Germany’s Dr. Kevorkian  refuses to do anything in her power to stem the tide of invasion that has enveloped her country, the fallout from European leaders’ indulgent attitudes continues. A case in point being the recent revelations by a woman who spared France from suffering more carnage in the wake of the Paris and Saint-Denis massacres. Instead of protecting her life-and figuring out ways to identify and detain the Islamists seeking her death-French leaders are exploiting the atrocities of November in order to deprive citizens of their civil liberties and devise new ways of thwarting the dreaded Marine Le Pen.  Read More »

Iowa Postmortem

Iowa Postmortem

Here are the county-by-county results of the Iowa caucuses. Unsurprisingly, there were allegations of dirty tricks during the voting process, both in the Democratic and the Republican camps. One of the most interesting analyses of the first major contest of the 2016 campaign comes from Reason Magazine, where Peter Suderman makes the compelling argument that Hillary Clinton is a singularly weak presidential candidate. Although it’s not a novel observation, his exploration of just how far Clinton’s stock has fallen over the past month is worth examining.

Update: Senator Cruz has emerged victorious, with Donald Trump and Marco Rubio rounding out the top 3, while Hillary Clinton and her socialist opponent are virtually even with nearly all of the precincts counted.

Swedish Hospitality

Swedish Hospitality

Aside from Germany, there is no nation in Europe which has had to cope with a larger share of refugees than Sweden. Apparently, the socialist government-whose popularity has hit a record low due to its inept handling of this crisis-has finally decided to admit that this constitutes a serious problem. To that end, Interior Minister Anders Ygeman has proposed deporting up to 80,000 refugees who have arrived within the past year but whose applications for asylum have been rejected. Read More »

While the Iowa caucuses are merely days away, we shouldn’t forget that the first primary in the nation will be held two weeks from now in the gradually purpling state of New Hampshire. The PBS Newshour has a surprisingly good snapshot of the attitudes of Republican voters in that state on the issue of immigration. Read More »

Texas v. United States (The Supremes Weigh In)

Texas v. United States (The Supremes Weigh In)

As we pointed out last week, the Supreme Court has decided to weigh the merits of the President’s executive actions on immigration. One of the most interesting analyses on this subject comes by way of Constitutional law professor Josh Blackman, who accurately points out that this case is unique in that it is the only time SCOTUS has asked the White House whether it is upholding its oath to faithfully execute the law.

The Vision of the Anointed (Stand With Dr. Swain!)

The Vision of the Anointed (Stand With Dr. Swain!)

Some of you might be familiar with Professor Carol Swain, an unapologetic patriot and defender of truth within a bitterly hostile environment. We’ve profiled her great work in the past; now the Vanderbilt political science and law professor faces an unprecedented challenge from the same Maoist brigades which have been wreaking havoc across the nation’s college campuses.

Help The Blash Family Out

Help The Blash Family Out

 

This is more of a personal request than the typical action alert you see posted in these pages, however it does speak to something very important to me, i.e. family. The brother of a friend  has experienced a traumatic loss recently, and is trying to recover in the face of this unimaginable strain.

More than simply losing his home-and the personal heirlooms and property that were engulfed in flames-he and his family have also lost their beloved dog. Read More »

Turn Off The Spigot (Action Alert To Stop Refugee Resettlement)

Turn Off The Spigot (Action Alert To Stop Refugee Resettlement)

 

As most of you know, Congress does much more than simply ignore this administration’s unconstitutional, illegal executive amnesties. It’s also responsible for funding the federal budget, including such items as refugee resettlement. Once again, this White House has decided to unilaterally rewrite federal immigration policy and expand the number of refugees imported into the United States by 10,000. Your voices-in opposition to this disastrous policy-need to be heard! To that end, Californians for Population Stabilization have created a petition demanding that Congress cut off the funding for this proposal before these Syrian migrants step foot on American soil.  Read More »

The Emperor of All Maladies

 

September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, a campaign that you can learn more about from a variety of sources, including Mary Tyler Mom. Every day this month that blog will feature the personal story of someone whose life was profoundly impacted by the cancer diagnosis of a loved one, friend, or patient.

Even those children whose lives aren’t taken by cancer, such as the beloved Emma, must deal with the long term consequences of severe chemotherapy and radiation treatments, which is why the work of organizations like the St. Baldrick’s Foundation is so urgent at this moment.
