    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) has been moving to the right on immigration over the last several months, both as a chance to appeal to Donald Trump supporters and as a way to cast himself as the true conservative against pro-amnesty establishment candidates like Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R). The Democratic National Committee tried to entrap Cruz at a campaign event in Storm Lake, Iowa yesterday by having an illegal immigrant DREAMer named Ofelia Valdez confront the Texas senator. "As a DACA holder myself, I worried about whoever comes next to the presidency and what's...

    Jeb Bush has a strong performance on Tuesday night's GOP debate stage and was 'really the serious candidate on stage" with his command of domestic and international policy, former Rep. Eric Cantor said Wednesday. "Clearly Jeb was back," the one-time House Majority Leader told CNN's "New Day" program. "Jeb clearly was prepared. He was the one most focused on identifying where conservative policies play out and benefit working people of this country. And was prepared to take on Hillary and did so last night more so than anybody." Bush believes in commonsense conservative policy, Cantor continued, versus what's become the...
  • Rubio the New GOP Establishment Candidate

    Democrats and the GOP Establishment have lost control of the political process. They can’t count on the mainstream media to do their bidding because of the rise of alternative media. There’s also the problem of conservative Republicans pushing back, not apologizing for their views, and not being able to control elections. As the Kentucky governor’s race showed, Republicans win big if they stick to issues the conservative base supports: pro-life, anti-same-sex marriage, and Tenth Amendment principles. Matt Bevin has said he will tell the EPA to “pound sound” if the agency rules against Kentucky’s coal industry. "The powers not given...

After receiving a loss at the hands of the Detroit Lions — yes, you can understand the Pack’s frustration — quarterback Aaron Rodgers told the cheesehead faithful to "R-E-L-A-X." Rodgers calmly told the media and Green Bay nation everything will be all right. And he was right. The team finished 12-4, captured first place in the NFC North and went to the NFC Championship.

  • DOJ to Judge Hanen: 'Miscommunication' Should Not Lead to Punitive Sanctions

    In immigration litigation pitting Texas and 25 other states against the Obama administration, the U.S. Department of Justice filed a memorandum arguing that U.S. District Judge Andrew S. Hanen should not impose punitive sanctions against the federal government. Nor should Hanen, who sits in Brownsville, reduce from three years to two the time allowed on work permits that the federal government already has issued to some 108,000 immigrants, DOJ lawyers argue. In the memorandum, the DOJ lawyers write that punitive sanctions would not be justified as a response to their previous "unintentional miscommunication" to Hanen about the federal government's flawed...

    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.

But the interview signaled an important alteration of the competition for the Democrats' 2008 presidential nomination -- that is, if Gore means what he is saying, and he seems painfully sincere. "Less than 10 years." That, Gore warns, is all the time that "leading scientists" say we may have "before we cross a point of no return" -- unless...
