DAPA Delayed

DAPA Delayed

  The 5th Circuit Court of Appeals has denied the Obama administration’s request to proceed with the DAPA program,  its unconstitutional usurpation of immigration law issued last November. The ruling isn’t a declarative verdict on the substance of the President’s latest dubious executive action so much as a refusal to give this White House the...

Erasing History

A big hat tip to Kathy Shaidle’s hubby for pointing out yet another instance of preemptive sharia compliance from a Western government. In this case, a Canadian departmental agency has decided to cancel the permit for a Draw Mohammed Day event slated to take place on Parliament Hill.

Artistic Weapons
