    As NewsBuster Geoffrey Dickens has noted, Ben Affleck appeared on yesterday evening's edition of Hardball. And while it's true that the actor/director/Dem activist offered a generally innocuous analysis, he did manage to engage in a bit of religious bigotry. Affleck's foul foray arose in the course of his discussion of the way the various Republican candidates have dealt with the issue of evolution and creationism. Talk turned to the former governor of Arkansas. BEN AFFLECK: I think Huckabee actually framed his position in a much less dramatic way than had been made out. Which was he said it could...

    ... Our Constitution specifies that no person shall be deprived of their life without due process. So the bill's provisions allowing abortions to be performed without any due process is on its face unconstitutional. The Supreme Court, in Roe opinion, opined that the unborn child is not a person. That's a legal fiction. When Roe opinion was written, it was commonly thought that before you or I became human, we went through various stages of biological development. "Ontogeny recapitulates Phylogeny" was the popular phrase taught to schoolchildren as scientific fact -- that we each start as a tadpole-like creature and...

    Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas urged college graduates who seek to "preserve liberty" to do so by fulfilling the duties of their daily vocations rather than attempting to achieve sweeping political goals. "At the risk of understating what is necessary to preserve liberty in our form of government, I think more and more that it depends on good citizens, discharging their daily duties in their daily obligations," Thomas said Saturday during a commencement address at Hillsdale College, a small liberal arts college in Michigan.
  • 7 FAM 1130 ACQUISITION OF U.S. CITIZENSHIP BY BIRTH ABROAD TO U.S. CITIZEN PARENT (Scrubbing of 7

    Today I discovered that the reason I could not find a section of the Nationalization Statues is because the section had been scrubbed. This is not an accident. The section removed had confirmed that the interpretation of the State Department based on the Constitution and relevant case law was that Naturalization did not convey natural born status for Constitutional purposes. The Foreign Affairs Manual (FAM) and associated Handbooks (FAHs) are a single, comprehensive, and authoritative source for the Department's organization structures, policies, and procedures that govern the operations of the State Department, the Foreign Service and, when applicable, other federal...

The H-1B is a visa designed to provided corporations with cheaper and less experienced guest workers to fill technology jobs. Norm Matloff, a professor at UC Davis, has written extensively about H-1B visa abuses, and his work is widely cited in the H-1B reform community. Matloff, a self-described Democrat and longtime admirer of Sen. Bernie Sanders, gave Donald Trumps H-1B policy an A+ and was pleased that the Republican frontrunner was...

    ination to the Supreme Court made by President Barack Obama, the White House is surely gearing up for a strategic nomination and epic battle for the future of the highest court in the country. Obama needs to move forward quickly with a transformative nominee who stands a chance of success on Capitol Hill.

Nominating her would transform the federal judiciary, bring Native Americans into the highest echelons of political society, and actually stand...

"I'm an Engineering Professor at Clemson.""Engineers!", he said. "Boy, we sure need a lot more of them, don't we!"I shook my head in wonder at his comment.

    The biggest problem with Rep. Paul's (R-Texas) latest comments on immigration is that they are NOT just some ad hoc thoughts tossed off carelessly at some speaking event. These are engraved in a brand new book. Until the release of the book, Liberty Defined, Dr. Paul had a mixed record in Congress and the fact that he had taken the NumbersUSA "No Amnesty" pledge at the end of his Presidential campaign in 2008. That had earned him a C-minus on our 2012 Presidential Hopefuls Immigration Stances Report Card. Not impressive, but the third best (behind Rep. Bachman with a B-minus...

"Well, I think you need it, because I think PACs are a horrible thing," Trump said on CNN's "State of the Union" when asked if he would pursue campaign finance reform. The billionaire businessman, who said he is self-financing his campaign, said the wall separating super-PACs and candidates running for public office is illusory. "First of all, everyone's dealing with their PAC. You know, it's supposed to be like this...
  • The Ultimate Goal of the Antigun Movement

    The ultimate goal of the antigun movement is this: the universal elimination of civilian firearms’ ownership and possession. This is true and incontrovertible. Everything the antigun movement does is directed to the attainment of that goal. Nothing the antigun movement does diverges from the path to that goal. When asked to admit the truth of the assertion, the antigun movement, and its sounding board, the mainstream corporate media, will deny it, curtly and vehemently. But, the antigun movement’s actions belie its blunt denial. Realization of the movement’s goal amounts to de facto repeal of the fundamental right of the people...

    San Francisco police officers are being asked to combat racism in the ranks and take a pledge to turn in colleagues displaying intolerant behavior, such as slurs and jokes targeting people of color, gays and women. The pledge is part of a broader public relations campaign by the embattled police department to repair frayed relations with minority neighborhoods and community activists. The campaign comes amid growing tensions between police and black communities that are shaking up departments across the country and have led to the dismissal of top brass in some cities, including Chicago.

Chief Justice Roy Moore said probate judges have a ministerial duty not to issue marriage licenses in conflict with the state marriage amendment pending a decision from the Alabama Supreme Court.

    While trying to soothe feelings among Hispanics for use of the term anchor babies, former Gov. Jeb Bush of Florida appears to have offended some in the Asian-American community. Mr. Bush said on Monday that it was ludicrous to suggest that he was using a slur to talk about Hispanics when discussing birthright citizenship. He went on to explain that he was largely referring to people from Asian countries who sneak into the United States planning to give birth. No matter which ethnic group youre referring to, anchor babies is a slur that stigmatizes children from birth, said Representative Judy...

They use code word language like “goals” and “diversity,” and avoid giving the impression that certain groups are ruled out from consideration. That’s what makes the honesty of a job posting at the state-funded University of Louisville so unusual.  Inside Higher Education (hat tip: Legal Insurrection) reports: can a department specifically reserve a position for an underrepresented minority candidate?

Bush has clashed with rivals -- including the Republican presidential frontrunner billionaire Donald Trump and top Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton -- over use of the term "anchor babies," a derogatory description of children born in the United States to undocumented parents. Migrants' rights activists see the term as a slur used by anti-immigration campaigners to describe the babies of those who sneak across the border to give birth, gifting their...

Western Illinois University's mock election predicted a landslide victory for Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders, with running mate Martin O'Malley, in 2016. The predicted Sanders-O'Malley ticket garnered 404 electoral votes to Jeb Bush-Marco Rubio's 114 votes. In the popular vote, Sanders earned 741 votes (49 percent) to Bush's 577 (38 percent). The famously accurate mock election correctly predicted the outcomes of the 2008 and 2012 elections, and the university claims it's the "largest and most elaborate mock presidential simulation in the nation."...

    THE F-1 VISA Under current law, the F-1 student visa operates under the assumption that foreign students have no intention of abandoning their home countries. It is intended to operate similar to a foreign exchange program, where the students return home after their studies are concluded. Current statute reads that an F-1 visa holder is “an alien having a residence in a foreign country which he has no intention of abandoning…” The I-Squared bill turns that on its head by removing the presumption that F-1 visa applicants return to their home country—rendering admissible a larger pool of foreign applicants, who...

The CBO report does not predict that the jobs themselves will be lost. Rather, they said that new expansions and mandates would encourage many employees to drop out of the workforce voluntarily.

    In Tuesday’s elections, voters rejected recreational marijuana, transgender rights, and illegal-immigrant sanctuaries; they reacted equivocally to gun-control arguments; and they handed a surprise victory to a Republican gubernatorial candidate who emphasized his opposition to gay marriage. Democrats have become increasingly assertive in taking liberal social positions in recent years, believing that they enjoy majority support and even seeking to turn abortion and gay rights into electoral wedges against Republicans. But Tuesday’s results—and the broader trend of recent elections that have been generally disastrous for Democrats not named Barack Obama—call that view into question. Indeed, they suggest that the left has...

After a confusing answer on H-1B visas (for so-called "high-skilled" workers), in which he claimed he had not been critical in the past of pro-amnesty Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, Trump moved to clarify his position in comments published on the website Breitbart.com. Regarding the familiar claims that the technology industry has a dearth of exceptional talent, Trump shot back: "We are graduating two times more students in science, technology, engineering,...

    'Nondiscrimination' rule means some Christian nonprofits. Its not easy for many Christian ministries to provide desperately needed services and outreaches to their communities and still manage to pay the bills every month. Many faith-based charities are busy helping the poor, orphans, homeless, hungry and drug-addicted individuals and supporting outreach missions abroad. Thats why its a blessing when Microsoft offers donated products such as Windows 10, Office 365 Nonprofit and other training and resources to nonprofit charity organizations as part of its Microsoft Corporate Citizenship Charity Sales program, which donates $2 million in software every day to charities. But, according to...

    The long-running feud between Jeb Bush and Donald Trump escalated yet again Saturday, with the former Florida governor releasing a two-minute video on social media mocking the billionaire's fitness to be commander-in-chief. *snip* The clip is the latest salvo in the Bush-Trump rivalry, which has often been marked by bitter and personal exchanges between the two prominent Republican presidential candidates. On Friday, Trump suggested Bush's brother, former President George W. Bush, shared in the blame for the 9/11 terrorist attacks because they occurred during his presidency. Saturday's round centered on a video set to the tune of circus music that...

    President Obama's weekly remarks Hi, everybody. Thirty years ago, there were 500,000 people behind bars in America. Today, there are 2.2 million. The United States is home to 5 percent of the worlds population, but 25 percent of the worlds prisoners. Every year, we spend $80 billion to keep people locked up. Now, many of the folks in prison absolutely belong there our streets are safer thanks to the brave police officers and dedicated prosecutors who put violent criminals behind bars. But over the last few decades, weve also locked up more non-violent offenders than ever before, for longer...

    The TPP, like many treaties before it, embraces the Investor-State Dispute Settlement process (ISDS), which allows corporate actors to sue sovereign nations to seek compensation for rules or regulations that impede the corporations ability to maximize profits. Unlike national courts that commonly allow corporations to sue to recoup actual investments, ISDS insists that corporations be compensated for expected profits, sometimes profits they anticipate decades into the future. The ISDS process is one-sided and undemocratic. Corporate claims against sovereign states are heard in special courts overseen by a handful of judges, most of whom are corporate lawyers. Once the ISDS panel...

    Former U.S. Treasurer and conservative commentator Bay Buchanan spoke to an audience of students and faculty Wednesday night about the importance of self-confidence and strong convictions in politics. At the Kennedy Political Union event, held in the SIS Abramson Founders Room, Buchanan told students she did not know what she wanted to do in college. Encouraged by her brother Pat, she took a leave of absence from graduate school to work on President Richard Nixons re-election campaign, giving her the political bug that would shape the rest of her career. There is such a level of excitement in [that] office...

    Archbishop Anthony Sablan Apuron of Agana, Guam has posted a message on his archdiocesean website stating that the “true intention” behind the push for same-sex marriage “has always been about the destruction of the family and the imposition of a totalitarian system.” The archbishop also predicted the next step in the process would be to use the education system so “that our children, your children, will be forced to assimilate to this pattern of non-gender.” “It is important to understand that the political pressure to push the agenda for same sex ‘marriage’ has never been about gay rights; the true...

    Pope Francis says bridges are better than walls when it comes to dealing with conflicts between nations, especially regarding Europes migrant crisis. The Pope spent 45 minutes speaking with the international media aboard the American Airlines flight that carried him back to Rome after his historic visit to Cuba and the United States, and answered a series of questions on everything from womens ordination to religious freedom.
