    Donald Trump has invited conservative activist James O’Keefe to attend the final presidential debate as his guest, according to a new report. "One of Trump's 'secret' debate guests is James O'Keefe. Watch yourself, gullible libs!” tweeted Bloomberg reporter Joshua Green. Trump’s campaign CEO and former Breitbart News chief Steve Bannon told CNN’s Brian Stelter that the campaign had several “surprise guests” planned for Wednesday night’s debate. O’Keefe made headlines this week after he posted several undercover videos that he alleges show Democratic operatives talking about stirring up mischief against the Republican presidential nominee’s campaign.

    "The New York State Legislature needs to Raise the Age of criminal responsibility, and they need to do it this year," demands the subheadline on MSNBC.com's landing page this afternoon for a story headlined, "Stop charging kids as adults." The column, co-authored by former NAACP president Ben Jealous and actress Rosario Dawson, promotes a push by the Citizens Committee for Children of New York [CCCNY] to change Empire State law so that minors aged 16 years old cannot be charged as adults. Jealous and Dawson don't disclose to what age they believe the age of criminal responsibility should be raised,...

    Last Sunday, Up with Chris Hayes host Chris Hayes ignited significant outrage with his musings about the word “heroes.” This morning, Up panelist and national security reporter for The Nation Jeremy Scahill waded into controversial semantic waters by repeatedly accusing President Obama of “murder” through the administration’s use of drone strikes, which have killed an indeterminate number of civilians. Surprisingly, Scahill’s indictment of the President was challenged, not by Hayes, but by Redstate.com co-founder Joshua Treviño. The topic of discussion was the so-called “kill list” of suspected terrorists to be exterminated in drone strikes. Hayes began by trying to drill...

    SALT LAKE CITY — A state Republican delegate behind the effort to repeal Utah's illegal immigration reform bill called drafters of the legislation "traitors" Wednesday. At the same news conference, Brandon Beckham basically demanded the GOP-controlled Utah Legislature repeal HB116 by Sept. 30. The bill would establish a guest worker program for undocumented immigrants in 2013. "Those who drafted this bill are traitors to Utah and they will be held accountable by voters in 2012," he said with Sen. Stephen Urquhart, R-St. George, and Rep. Chris Herrod, R-Provo, and others standing behind him in the Capitol rotunda. Both lawmakers favor...

    Although the clip below from CBS’s Face The Nation is not as confrontational as the title to this post might suggest, it’s actually much funnier. Bob Schieffer annually hosts a roundtable in an attempt to bring together for an intellectual conversation four authors who wrote serious historical or political books. This year authors Ron Chernow (Washington: A Life), Arianna Huffington (Third World America), Edmund Morris (Colonel Roosevelt), and Bob Woodward (Obama’s Wars) participated in the thoughtful and sedate conversation, that is until a sound rarely, if ever, heard on a Sunday morning news show caught all viewers by surprise:

    A powerful Republican state senator said Monday he plans to sponsor legislation creating a one-of-a-kind Utah guest-worker card for immigrants. In doing so, Sen. Howard Stephenson will challenge federal authority as sole enforcer of immigration law and present a business-backed alternative to Arizona-style reform. “I believe the states have the power to regulate this a lot more than other people realize,” said Stephenson, who also heads the business-backed Utah Taxpayers Association.”We can have a legal guest-worker permit system in the state of Utah that would be regulated by the private sector at the cost of the employer and employee.”

    Angry house guest causes great damage STAR ISLAND, Fla., Sept. 2 (UPI) -- A house guest trashed a Florida multimillionaire developer's patio, causing $50,000 in damage -- and claiming she did it because he owes her money. Shakia Dasamon Mitchell, 26, met 50-year-old Thomas Kramer in an online chat room. Kramer told The Miami Herald he later invited Mitchell, of Dallas, to south Florida for the weekend, offering his Star Island mansion as a place to stay. Shortly after Mitchell arrived Aug. 24, she began arguing with Kramer at a nearby restaurant, saying he had promised her $10,000. Kramer claimed...

Doesn't he or she NEED to... NOW? Download the pledge: http://www.rightmarch.com/media/pledge.pdf Until the federal government is willing to enforce the immigration laws that are already on the books, Americans will be highly skeptical of any additional promises to enforce a new and deeply flawed approach -- and rightly so. If recent history is an accurate guide, so-called "guest worker" proposals will only encourage new tidal waves of illegal aliens -- and make America's uncontrolled and...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President George W. Bush on Wednesday vowed to keep working for immigration legislation including a guest worker program, as Republicans held dueling hearings to build support for rival bills. Pennsylvania Sen. Arlen Specter assembled employers and sympathetic politicians to testify in Philadelphia about the country's dependence on the estimated 11 to 12 million illegal immigrants in the United States. Meanwhile, House Republican leaders convened a public hearing at a Border Patrol station in San Diego to highlight the need for stricter enforcement along the U.S. border with Mexico to prevent illegal immigrants entering the country. Bush took...

    Dear (Technoman) : Thank you for contacting me to share your views on immigration. This is an issue with strong feelings on both sides. I want you to know that I do not support illegal immigration, that I believe all persons should respect and honor our laws for admission to our country and I am grateful for the US Border Patrol and National Guard who regulate our borders to discourage lawbreakers. However, the fact is that 12 million undocumented immigrants reside in the United States . This issue will not go away. We cannot turn our backs on the matter...

    FORT CAMPBELL, Ky. (June 8, 2006) -- The Fort Campbell, Ky., Fisher House opened its doors June 6 to Soldiers and families in need of a place to stay during hospitalization at Blanchfield Army Community Hospital. The grand opening showcased the eight-family “comfort home” designed to give Soldiers and families a home away from home. The facility has private bedrooms and bathrooms with a shared kitchen, living and laundry room. There are now 35 Fishes Houses around the world. Each was built to honor the sacrifices of Soldiers and families for what they do for the country, said Arnold Fisher,...

    Are black Americans being blackmailed to support illegal aliens' false civil rights claims? Kevin Fobbs May 22, 2006 On May 1st, hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens took to American streets to essentially blackmail America into supporting their alleged "civil rights" which sent up at least a half dozen red flags in the black community. I'm quite certain that thousands of black mothers and fathers — who, by the way, are here in this country legally — who are struggling to obtain a decent education, or affordable housing, or quality health care or a job to support their family just...

    Backers of President Bush's bid to revamp immigration laws scored another small victory in the Senate yesterday, but they are increasingly concerned about a House Republican policy that could block final agreement even if a bipartisan majority is within reach. Speaker J. Dennis Hastert's insistence that major legislation reach the House floor only if it appears to be backed by a "majority of the majority" could throw a high hurdle in front of efforts to reach a House-Senate compromise on immigration later this year, lawmakers said. Hastert (R-Ill.) has invoked the policy in blocking bills that appeared likely to win...
