    Conservative predictions come true In a move that virtually every conservative on Earth saw coming a mile away, House Democrats have introduced a bill that would extend ObamaCare coverage to Americaís illegal alien population. Sponsored by radical Dem Representatives Luis Gutierrez and Judy Chu (the usual suspects of illegal support) the ďExchange Inclusion for a Healthy America Act of 2015Ē seeks to grant illegals ACA enrollment via the healthcare exchanges. Hereís Luis Gutierrez, outlining the ways in which his admiration for the Pope and his belief in the golden rule were responsible for this piece of legislation. Keep in mind,...

Francis presided at a solemn Mass in St. Peter's Basilica to open the meeting, known as a synod, on the theme of the family in the modern world.

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

    The spectacular rise of Donald Trump as leading presidential candidate should at last force Republicans in Washington to face the chronic ineffectiveness of their party: rank and file Republicans are turning to the Donald because he, unlike the party establishment, seems energetic, articulate, and determined to get something done. They have so long despaired of a party leadership that is inarticulate, somnolent, and inept that they are not deterred by the fact that Trump is dangerously unpredictable. The problem is not an insufficiently conservative party, as some conservatives think; a two-party system will always have a broad spectrum of viewpoints...

    Jesus Cecena killed SDPD Officer Archie Buggs in 1978The man who shot and killed San Diego Police Officer Archie Buggs "execution-style" has been granted parole, according to the San Diego District Attorney's office. On Friday, the state Parole Board decided Jesus Cecena should be released after 36 years behind bar for Buggs' slaying. In 1978, Cecena was pulled over by Buggs, 30, for a traffic stop in Skyline. Cecena pulled out a gun and shot the 4-year SDPD veteran to death. Cecena was originally sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole in 1979, but in 1982,...

    Thanks in very large part to The Donald, the illegal immigration issue has come raging to the fore in the consciousness of a great many American citizens (and others) in recent times. People are not only thinking about the issue, but they have started talking about it, oftentimes with great passion. And this is so regardless of which side of the dispute the contenders align with. It seems there are two basic, contending schools of thought, both premised in the Fourteenth Amendment, which says: Section 1. All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction...

    Immigration is THE issue for 2016 Why is it that when African Americans whose families have been in this country for hundreds of years commit crimes they go to jail and when illegal immigrants commit crimes they get released? In Los Angeles, 95 percent of all outstanding warrants for homicide target illegal aliens, as do approximately two-thirds of all fugitive felony warrants. More than 60 percent of the Hispanic gangs in Southern Californiaówhose membership is in the tens of thousandsóis illegal. These gangs are involved with drug-distribution schemes, extortion, drive-by assassinations, assaults, and robberies. According to the analysis conducted by...

  • Judge Andrew Napolitanoís Bizarre Op-Ed on RFRAs: He argues that RFRAs are unconstitutional

    In a challenging field of competitors, Fox News Channelís Andrew Napolitano has a strong entry for the most laughable legal analysis of the Indiana religious-freedom law. In an April Foolís Day op-ed that he evidently means to be taken seriously, Napolitano argues that state Religious Freedom Restoration Act laws are unconstitutional. Napolitanoís core claim is that the Supreme Court, in its 1997 ruling in Boerne v. Flores, ruled that the 1993 federal Religious Freedom Restoration Act is unconstitutional. In Boerne the Court ruled that Congress lacked the constitutional power to apply the federal RFRA against the states. Napolitano accurately summarizes...

    Based on Senate Hearings on proposing the 14th Amendment | 8-27-2015 | Dangus
    The chattering class insists that the 14th amendment automatically grants citizenship to children of illegal aliens. They do this by relying on the public's ignorance of the 14th amendment and the obscurity of the meaning of "under the jurisdiction thereof. The author of the 14th amendment was very clear when he proposed it, however: "This amendment, which I have offered is simply declaratory ... that every person born within the United States, and subject to their jurisdiction is by virtue of natural law and national law a citizen of the United States. This will not of course include persons born...

    Given the opportunity to get to the White House, presidential candidate Jeb Bush would fight to grant Dreamers a path to citizenship while working to fix the broken immigration system in America. ďI, as President, I would go to congress and change the law to give them not a residency but citizenship,Ē Bush said in Spanish during a meeting attended by this writer.
