Standing Up For America

Standing Up For America

The week in which we commemorate our forefathers’ decision to break the shackles of British colonial domination, it’s only fitting that we read the words of one of the few genuinely patriotic members of the United States Senate. Also one of the most articulate exponents of American conservatism, Senator Sessions demonstrates once again the...

Criminal Negligence

Criminal Negligence

Most of you are well aware of the fact that this administration, despite its repeated attempts to airbrush its blemishes, has an absolutely atrocious record of immigration enforcement. However, a recent report documents just how negligent the federal government has been in ensuring the safety of American citizens. Nearly 70,000 criminal aliens have been...

Meet The New Boss

Meet The New Boss

Here’s the roll call vote confirming Jeh Johnson as the next Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security. There are a number of interesting inferences that can be made from the “nay” side of the ledger, which constituted a little over a third of the Republican Conference. While some of the votes  don’t require...

Kill The Bill

Kill The Bill

  Far be it from me to praise National Review-especially the feckless leadership of its current editor-in-chief-but when it’s right, it’s right. And in this case, NR is absolutely correct.

Bolstered by the seemingly inexhaustible funds of the open borders lobby, she’s now fully embraced the concept...

Two Americans (A Postscript)

Two Americans (A Postscript)

One of the most frustrating aspects of the immigration monologue that’s unfolded over the past few years is the inability of one side-representing those who are committed to open borders and an uninterrupted stream of mass immigration-to acknowledge the legitimacy of the concerns expressed by their opponents, despite the fact that they constitute a...

Two Americans (The Case Against Joe Arpaio)

Two Americans (The Case Against Joe Arpaio)

With the United States Senate rushing headlong into its rendezvous with destiny, i.e. deconstructing what remains of this nation’s anemic and beleaguered economy, and the U.S. House following suit, it  seems appropriate to examine cui bono from these developments. Obviously not American citizens, beyond Facebook billionaire Mark Zuckerberg and the politicians who’ll be handsomely...

DREAMland

One of the unfortunate developments of 2012 was the continued usurpation of the legislative process by a president intent upon pursuing his personal political objectives, even if doing so meant evading the constitutional separation of powers. In addition to the broad administrative amnesty initiated by ICE in 2011, the last year of the Obama...

Close Call

Close Call

Washington Watcher has a more detailed explanation of why Senator Marco Rubio would have been such an undesirable running-mate for Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney-if the video of Mr. Rubio’s own words I posted several days ago is not sufficient. Undesirable, that is, from the perspective of those who favor patriotic immigration reform. If the Republican...
