    What can President Trump accomplish in the wake of the 2018 mid-term elections, with respect to the Second Amendment? The Democrats, with the aid of their colleagues in the media, have managed to take control of the House of Representatives.At the same time, the Republicans have gained seats in the Senate, cementing their control there, especially with the retirement of Senator Jeff Flake and the death of John McCain. Given the new reality, Donald Trump's presidency has gained some potential and lost some potential.The losses are real. They mean little legislation will be passed.  I do not expect any...
  • DOJ Charges Hotel with Discrimination for not Hiring Immigrant in Fraud-Infested Asylum Program

    11/09/2018 6:52:24 PM PST · by zeestephen · 26 replies
    In a case that helps illustrates why illegal immigrants game the system, the Trump administration is punishing a major hotel chain for refusing to hire a man that is not a lawful permanent resident or American citizen. Like countless undocumented aliens seeking quick employment, the man applied for asylum, a fraud-infested government program famously abused by foreigners to obtain work permits and other benefits in the U.S.

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said on Thursday that “now” is the time to talk about comprehensive amnesty legislation because Democrats have regained control of the House. Pelosi, who also said she is “100%” sure that she will regain her Speakership, told CNN’s Chris Cuomo that “now we can talk about how we can come together and put together bipartisan comprehensive immigration reform.” Conceding that illegal immigration is a losing issue for Republicans, Pelosi revealed that she suggested to Democrats running for Congress to not get into fights with the Trump administration on immigration and instead “stick with lower...

    Friday on MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports,” former Republican National Committee chairman Michael Steele called President Donald Trump’s proposal to end birthright citizenship via executive order engaging “in stupid at a level that we have never seen before.” Steele said, “It is better from Trump’s perspective to have a base that is angry and mad at someone other than him. It is sort of the 1950s racism that has been reintroduced into the body politic, and he is thriving on that. So, you know, a great jobs number, and wages going up, and tax cuts, and Supreme Court appointment s appointments,...

    Speaker Ryan: ‘You cannot end birthright citizenship with an executive order’ House Speaker Paul Ryan on Tuesday broke with President Donald Trump on whether an executive order could deny a constitutional guarantee of citizenship to babies born in the U.S. to noncitizen parents. But despite Ryan's stern rebuttal to the president, the idea of limiting birthright citizenship still has significant cache among congressional Republicans, even if they aren't quite sure how to undo a constitutional guarantee stemming from the 14th Amendment. Trump told Axios in an interview released Tuesday that the White House counsel had advised him that there was...
  • So much for 'refuge.' Caravan army turns up its nose at Mexico's generous offer of asylum

    10/27/2018 7:48:54 AM PDT · by RoosterRedux · 53 replies ^ | Monica Showalter
    Migrants traveling in a caravan through southern Mexico have rejected a proposal by President Enrique Pena Nieto that they apply for refugee status in the country and obtain benefits. Coordinators of the caravan read out the president’s plan called “You are at home.” Migrants shouted “Gracias!” but “No, we’re heading north!” Activist Irineo Mujica of the Pueblo sin Fronteras group is supporting the migrants in the caravan. He told the group that 80 percent of those who apply for protective status would be rejected and deported. *snip* What's indisputable here is that weak as it is, and as concerned about...

In this, the president is correct. Both parties need to come together...

    President Trump said in an early morning tweet on Thursday that he is "bringing out the military" to secure the border with Mexico, calling it a "National Emergency." "Brandon Judd of the National Border Patrol Council is right when he says on @foxandfriends that the Democrat inspired laws make it tough for us to stop people at the Border," Trump tweeted. "MUST BE CHANDED, but I am bringing out the military for this National Emergency. They will be stopped!" Trump tweeted last week that he would use the military to stop a caravan of migrants from Central America, which has...
  • The Caravan Is Trump’s Biggest Immigration Showdown So Far

    The United States has been under an illegal immigrant invasion for decades because our borders have been porous. Elected officials made deals with lobbyists who guaranteed cheap labor, amongst other deals. Now, there is a caravan of over 7,000 people moving through Mexico from Honduras, but this is not about jobs as they claim. They intend to arrive around midterm election day to create a spectacle, and the Democratic Party is complacent. The Left wants a humanitarian crisis that will make President Trump look bad by sending the National Guard to the border, but they are forgetting something. Immigration was...

    What would the Army do against a caravan of civilians, many of them women and children, anyway? Shoot them? The Republicans see this caravan as the perfect issue to rally the base and insure a big, robust turnout for the mid-term elections now two weeks away. Democrats would like to pretend that the caravan is just a giant day-care center filled with needy children that the heartless president doesn’t care about. This crisis calls for reason, patience, compassion and an immediate parlay among the affected nations in Central America, Mexico and the United States. In exchange for leniency and a...
