    A motorcycle police officer stops a driver for shooting through a red light. The driver is a real jerk, steps out of his car and comes striding toward the officer, demanding to know why he is being harassed by the Gestapo! So the officer calmly tells him of the red light violation. The motorist instantly goes on a tirade, questioning the officer's ancestry, sexual orientation, etc., in rather explicitly offensive terms. The tirade goes on and on without the officer saying anything. When the officer finishes writing the ticket he puts an "AH" in the lower right corner of the...

    America’s immigration enthusiasts, which is to say her entire ruling class, have such untrammeled access to the mainstream media that they are able to launch obviously absurd memes in shamelessly coordinated fashion. Thus, in the wake of the Republican triumph in the 2014 midterm elections—which of course had no effect on them at all; being an immigration enthusiast (to adapt the old movie Love Story) means never having to say you’re sorry—The New Republic ran “A Radical Solution to Global Income Inequality: Make the U.S. More Like Qatar” (November 6), by two University of Chicago academics, Eric A. Posner and...
  • Authorities: 11 dead after truck crashes in Texas (23 in a pick-up)

    GOLIAD, Texas (AP) — At least 11 people died Sunday and another 12 were injured after a pickup truck loaded with passengers left the highway and crashed into trees in rural South Texas, authorities said. State troopers and Goliad County sheriff's investigators were investigating what prompted the single-vehicle crash and did not immediately know the names and ages of the victims. Gerald Bryant, a spokesman for the Texas Department of Public Safety, told The Associated Press they were various ages and that he personally saw two young children among the dead at the scene. "This is the most people I've...

    You’re next, Ohio! President Obama’s “Organizing for America” is ramping up its efforts to protect public union privileges from the objections of tax serfs. A few thousand public union troops descended on Columbus Thursday, angry at Republican Governor John Kasich’s initiative to weaken their collective bargaining powers. A chipper article in the Huffington Post reassures us that organizing efforts are now only “a week behind” Wisconsin. And look how well that’s going! If you’re an Ohio parent, you should probably start stockpiling educational materials, so you can teach your kids after the union teachers abandon them to join protests at

    New Hampshire Democrats conceded a dramatic loss of power to a Republican insurgency last November. Now another group is coming to terms with its sidelining. Moderate Republicans, the practical-minded mainstay of the state’s venerable GOP, have watched in dismay as conservative legislators have proposed restricting state education funding to English, math, science, social studies, and physical education and urged that officials no longer “bear faith and true allegiance’’ to the United States and New Hampshire, but rather, only to New Hampshire. With the recent ascension of Tea Party activist Jack Kimball to head the state Republican Party, many moderates now...

The seller was unsure if Eisenman was referring to space aliens or illegal aliens, Perez added. Sgt. Perez said Eisenman told the seller...

    I feel enraged at the lack of compassion the Republicans in the Senate have for the unemployed needing a hand in the form of unemployment benefits which have run out. Yet, these same Republican Senators passed every request by the Bush Administration, without providing the funds for them, including the lack of funding of both the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, unfunded Medicare benefits which they approved, as well as unfunded requirements from the No Child Left Behind legislation they also approved. They want government destroyed by weighing it down with debt, while they blame Democrats under the Obama presidency for...
  • ID Card for Workers Is at Center of Immigration Plan

    Lawmakers working to craft a new comprehensive immigration bill have settled on a way to prevent employers from hiring illegal immigrants: a national biometric identification card all American workers would eventually be required to obtain. Under the potentially controversial plan still taking shape in the Senate, all legal U.S. workers, including citizens and immigrants, would be issued an ID card with embedded information, such as fingerprints, to tie the card to the worker. The ID card plan is one of several steps advocates of an immigration overhaul are taking to address concerns that have defeated similar bills in the past....

    BENSALEM, Pa. — An alert police officer saved a damsel in distress from an attack by a fugitive illegal alien, who is now behind bars.

Police said Detective Eliot Gross arrived at the store at about 5:40 p.m. to follow up on a previous investigation. As he exited his vehicle, Gross heard the sound of a woman screaming coming from across the lot. Gross, police said, ran toward the screams and found the victim standing by her parked car, out of breath, and...

    Madison - The Legislature's Joint Finance Committee approved measures Friday that would let some illegal immigrants pay in-state college tuition, and provide limited legal protections to same-sex couples. Democrats who control the committee pushed through the measures over Republican objections, on party line votes of 12-4. The provisions were folded into the state budget the panel plans to send to the full Legislature. The committee also approved establishing new schools of freshwater science and public health at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. It did not provide funding. Wisconsin high schools graduate 400 to 650 illegal immigrants annually, and they must pay...

    OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Illegal immigrants in Oklahoma prisons for nonviolent crimes would be subject to deportation under legislation overwhelmingly approved by the Oklahoma House. In a rare late-night session tonight, House members voted 90-0 for the bill by Rep. Randy Terrill. The Moore Republican says the bill will save the state millions of dollars in incarceration costs. The measure allows the Department of Corrections to send illegal immigrant inmates to the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency. The bill applies only to inmates who are incarcerated for nonviolent crimes who have served at least half their sentence in state...

Vonn won the downhill in 1min 42.49sec to edge out Maria Riesch of Germany and Austria's Renate Goetschl. "My life could not be any better," said the 24-year-old. "I have a fantastic husband, two cristal globes, two downhill globes. I'm missing nothing." It's the first time an American woman has ever won two overall crowns, and the trophies will be added to a burgeoning collection that also includes two World Championship golds
