  • Republican donors, operative fueling new anti-Trump ad blitz

    Republican donors with links to several presidential candidates - as well as a prominent GOP operative - are pooling their resources in a new effort to go after Donald Trump and keep the party's presidential front-runner from winning the nomination. The most recent bid is a reported "guerrilla campaign" led by a group called Trump Card LLC and run by Liz Mair, former communications official for the Republican National Committee. The group's goal, according to The Wall Street Journal, is to collect money from anonymous donors to "defeat and destroy" Trump, who has essentially led the GOP presidential field since...

    United We Stay defines itself as: a gathering place for undocumented Americans to share our powerful stories and to showcase these thousands, even millions of stories, as a force to be reckoned with in rewriting immigration history. Dandy. Anyhow, what follow are the claims and demands made by the group United We Stay which proudly represents millions of aliens who have illegally invaded the United States. The mind boggling conceit evident in the makeshift preamble of the “Bill of Rights” written by United We Stay for the sundry thieves, rapists, murderers, gang-bangers and chronic lay-abouts which infest the United States...
  • Texas asks Supreme Court for delay in Obama amnesty case

    The Washington Times ^ | November 23, 2015 | Mark Sherman - AP
    WASHINGTON -- Texas asked the Supreme Court Monday for more time to answer the Obama administration's immigration appeal, a delay that probably would prevent the plan to shield millions of immigrants from deportation from taking effect during Barack Obama's presidency. If the justices agree to the state's request, the administration's plan would miss the court's informal deadline for a decision by the end of June. The plan that Obama unveiled a year ago mainly affects people who are living in the country illegally, but who have children who are U.S. citizens or lawful permanent residents. Unless the court was to...

    The Obama administration let hundreds of illegal immigrants stay in the U.S. even though federal authorities knew in advance that an open borders group coached them to falsely claim "credible fear" to get asylum, according to documents obtained by Judicial Watch from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). The operation was part of a scam conducted by an immigrant rights organization called the National Immigrant Youth Alliance (NITA), which in recent years has coordinated demonstrations along the Southwest border in Texas and Arizona. In mid-2014 the group orchestrated a racket seeking to bring 250 illegal aliens into the U.S. through...

For the second time in weeks, he botched a reference to Thomas Jefferson. During a C-SPAN interview that aired Sunday night, host Steve Scully pointed out that Carson talks a lot about the Founding Fathers and asked Carson if he has one in particular that he's most impressed with. "I'm impressed by a lot of them, but particularly impressed with Thomas Jefferson, who seemed to have very deep insight into the way that people would react,"...

    “I think it’s just reflective of what’s been going on for the past month or so and the way the race, at least in the establishment lane, has shifted. It’s really Jeb or Marco now.” Thus spoke an “anonymous” Bush donor, quoted in Politico. The edgy and unidentified Bushie inadvertently confessed that all those Establishment types really do consider Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) as one of their own. Apparently his Tea Party upset of then-GOP Establishment Governor Charlie Crist was not what it seemed. Senator Rubio has impressed many on the campaign trail. Without doubt his foreign policy concentration is...

    Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh made a rare television appearance Sunday morning, joining "Fox News Sunday" host Chris Wallace to discuss ISIS and the Syrian refugee crisis. After criticizing President Obama for seeming more angry at Republicans than the terrorists who attacked Paris, Limbaugh moved on to comment about the Republican presidential nominees, offering a glowing review of Donald Trump. “Donald Trump is, I think, doing a great service,” Limbaugh said. “He is showing that you do not have to fear attacks from media. He's showing you do not have to fear being politically correct or violating political correctness.”(continued)

    "If we put in place a strong E-Verify system and deport criminal illegal aliens, the number of people here illegally will drop significantly, particularly if there's not a continual flow of people coming in illegally," Cruz said. "At that point, once we've demonstrated that we can solve the problem, then we can have a conversation about what to do about whatever people remain illegally," Cruz added. When asked if that conversation included the potential for a pathway to legal status, he repeated, "We can have that conversation with the American people once we secure the border."

    The Justice Department asked the Supreme Court to reinstate President Obama's deportation amnestyFriday, filing papers appealing a federal appeals court's decision blocking the amnesty exactly a year after the program was first announced. Administration officials hope to get the case on the high court's calendar for this term, which ends in June. Otherwise the case would have to wait to be heard until October 2016, at the earliest, which would mean a decision likely wouldn't come until after Mr. Obama leaves office and a new president has a chance to undo his moves. Mr. Obama is desperate to try to...

Today, he told ABC News that ISIS is more of a threat now than al Qaeda was in 2001 and 2003. "They weren’t nearly as developed as they are now -- at that point,” Carson said in response to an ABC News question. "That was my point. This is so much greater a threat than that was.” Carson also said the attacks on the World Trade Center in 2001...

However, in lieu of the chaos, presidents will be forced to make many decisions during their tenure that will affect the safety and security of the American people. The Paris attack gave us a chance to see how our candidates would respond if an event like that occured during their administration. In a world with an ever increasing threat of an ISIS attack, immigration is no longer...

    Suffering, perhaps temporarily, the setback of an injunction against executive amnesty; the administration is moving full speed ahead with its plans for refugees. Who knows what the actual intake will be before this is all done but missing from the equation is the untold number that will also arrive, subsequently, as derivative beneficiaries of those granted status (see here: http://www.uscis.gov/i-730). Unlike the folks entering across the southern border, refugees, once they’ve been admitted into the country and have stayed for a year, automatically qualify to adjust status to become permanent residents. From this point on, they are on a glide...

This bill would have concocted an unconditional right to immediate legal permanent resident status for any person in the world who declares himself "stateless."

    The current intramural battle over immigration policy among GOP 2016 hopefuls, a most welcome and most necessary controversy, is a useful example of why the Senate is such a tough place from which to run for president. Few senators make it , only John F. Kennedy and Barack Obama in the last 60 years , and only after short Capitol Hill stints that yield thin voting records. The reason is clear: To be a good legislator and to move public opinion on important issues, a senator sometimes must make proposals that, taken out of context, can distort the senator's overarching...

He also laid out why he put forward certain amendments during the Gang of Eight bill fight on the Senate floor and in the Senate Judiciary Committee—like one that would have increased H1-B visas ... Cruz said of increasing immigration levels including increasing H-1B visas to the United States: I don’t believe that’s a good idea. And let me say a couple of things on that: First of all, it’s important to understand on the Senate Judiciary Committee, I was leading the fight along with Jeff Sessions to defeat this bill—the...

    France's unpopular Socialist President Francois Hollande is talking tough after the latest terrorist outrage, which makes the terrorist incidents earlier this year seem small by comparison. His failure to meaningfully fight terrorism is laid bare and Hollande is now struggling in the face of regional elections on December 6th which could see National Front leader Marine Le Pen winning leadership in the northeast of the country and her niece Marion Marechal Le Pen winning leadership in the southeast. The real story of what's really happening when it comes to terrorism comes from the Obama Administration and its Secretary of Defense,...
  • Carson Would Use ‘Things They Don’t Know About Resources’ on Terrorists

    ORLANDO — Ben Carson stumbled Friday evening while responding to a question about how he would respond to the terror attacks in Paris if he were president. Carson said he would employ "things that they don't know about resources" against terrorists, but struggled to specify what an American response under his leadership might look like. "I would be working with our allies, using every resource known to man: in terms of economic resources, in terms of covert resources… military resources… things-that-they-don't-know-about resources… not to contain them, but to eliminate them, before they eliminate us," Carson told reporters at the Sunshine...

    I can't possibly summarize the whole thing, as there's lots of detail. You should read it yourself, with the promise that you'll find plenty to like. Border wall? Check. Biometric screening system at points of entry? Check. An end to sanctuary cities? Checkity check. Criminalizing visa overstays? Yep, that too. Strengthening E-Verify? Oh yeah. Nary an enforcement mechanism is left unmentioned. But it's not the provisions on illegal immigration that people are buzzing about on social media. It's what Cruz has to say about legal immigration. Isn't he the guy who called for vastly expanding the cap on H-1B visas...

    Leading Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson believes that federal and state official overreacted in the case of Terri Schiavo, a Florida woman who died in 2005 as her husband and family battled over whether to keep her alive despite her vegetative state.The case roiled the state of Florida and sparked an emotional national debate about the ethics, politics and spiritual significance of her life and death.(snip)After speaking at a Republican Party conference here on Friday, a reporter asked Carson what he thought of the infamous case -- one that Bush speaks about occasionally as he mounts his own presidential campaign."We...

    Iowa representative Steve King, one of the loudest opponents of comprehensive immigration reform in Congress, says he is not troubled by an amendment Ted Cruz proposed during the 2013 debate over the Gang of Eight reform bill, which has been used this week by Cruz’s opponents to portray him as soft on the issue. Cruz, who has long painted himself as the ideological purist in the race, found himself in an odd position this week: under fire from Marco Rubio, a co-sponsor of the failed Gang of Eight bill, for being in favor of expanded immigration. The attack stems from...

    I remember the spring of 2013 like it was yesterday. It was one of the busiest times of my career. Republicans were working overtime to codify Obama’s open borders agenda into law, and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) was the ring leader of the effort. The voice of the people was not being heard and we were subjected to fallacious talking points on a daily basis. ... Rubio is now suggesting that Cruz also supported amnesty because at the time of the Gang of 8 debate, Cruz introduced an amendment stripping the provision providing a path to citizenship from the bill....

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Now, even despite -- even despite -- not including the Trump tirade from last night, Trump still goes up, and there are things that happened. Like, a lot of people thought Trump was a nonentity in the debate, that he really wasn't there. He certainly wasn't the fiery, dominating Trump that everybody's gotten to know. And so some speculated that, "Well, maybe that means Trump's getting bored or maybe just has less excitement in general." It's when I came in and reminded everybody, "Don't judge it that way. Debates do not make candidate. A debate can break...

    Skip to 5:10 of the first clip below for the immigration bit from this morning’s interview with Mike Gallagher. Actual quote from Cruz about Rubio’s claim that the two are alike on immigration: That's like Obama saying my position is the same as his on Obamacare. That’s like Ayatollah Khamenei saying my position is the same as his on the Iranian nuclear deal. Rubio and the Ayatollah Khamenei, huh?Anyway. There are at least three broad differences between Rubio and Cruz on legalization. One: Cruz opposes a “legalization first” approach to reform, arguing correctly that that’s the same bait-and-switch that...

    Republican Presidential candidate Ben Carson told Arizonans that if elected president, he would seal the entire U.S.-Mexico border with a double-fenced wall within a year of taking office. His statement came in response to a question asked during a live half-hour telephone town hall meeting: "How practically and quickly can we get a wall that's effective?" one man asked, adding with great emphasis that "time is not on our side." Carson paused for moment, as if considering the logistics of constructing a 2,000-mile wall, before answering: "I think it can be done in a less than a year," he replied...

    (Watch Video At Link) Hi. I'm Wayne Allyn Root for Personal Liberty(r). I'm reporting today on the greatest fraud in the history of world politics: the cover up by the mainstream media of Barack Obama's college records. But there is one ray of hope to report. The mainstream media just opened the door for all conservatives to demand that Obama release his Columbia University college records immediately. How nice of the mainstream media. Thank you! How did the Obama-loving frauds in the media manage to allow this to happen? They decided to try to ruin Ben Carson's candidacy. An articulate...

    National Review’s Kevin Williamson is out promoting his soon-to-be released book entitled, “The Case Against Trump.” A recent news release from a public relations firm pushing Willamson and the book suggests that the book’s “thesis” will present both a condemnation Trump and the plurality of Republican voters who support Trump. The release reads in part: “THESIS… [Trump] has connected with an under-appreciated strain of right-wing populists, ranging from anti-NAFTA activists to outright white nationalists, by focusing his fire on a single issue—immigration, especially illegal immigration from Mexico and Central America. In this Encounter Broadside book, National Review’s Kevin D. Williamson...
