    Bill Reeves and Debbie Berger are behind Unbound Philanthropy, a group that has given tens of millions of dollars to pro-open borders activist groups both in the United States and the United Kingdom. Reeves and Berger are also both major Democrat donors, and they are their group also has connections to the exclusive Punahou School, the elite private school that President Barack Obama attended. To help understand just a little of the impact of the vast web of funding that Unbound Philanthropy is responsible for: Tia Oso helped shutdown events by Hillary Clinton's rivals - Bernie Sanders and Martin O'Malley...

    There’s enormous controversy surrounding a new U.S. Commission on Civil Rights report calling for the release of illegal immigrants from detention centers nationwide due to widespread “egregious human rights and constitutional violations.” The commission is an independent and bipartisan federal agency created by Congress decades ago to advance civil rights through “objective and comprehensive investigation, research and analysis.” However, the agency’s chairman, Obama appointee Martin Castro, determined that illegal immigrant detention centers in the U.S. were cesspools of human rights violations before the commission completed its study, according to at least two commissioners on the panel. This appears to be...

    Islamic activists that strong-armed the FBI to purge anti-terrorism training material considered “offensive” to Muslims have made their next wave of demands, which include an overhaul in the way all law enforcement officers are trained in the United States. The coalition of influential and politically-connected Muslim rights groups is demanding that the Obama administration implement a mandatory retraining program for all federal, state and local law enforcement officials who may have been subjected to materials they deem “biased and discriminatory” against Muslims. There must also be an audit of all federal law enforcement and intelligence gathering training and educational materials...

    A stealth case moving through the Texas courts, athough yet to see a trial, addresses the issue of whether or not illegal alien students should continue to receive taxpayer funded grant monies for secondary education.The pivot point for the case, Lone Star College System of Texas & Richard Carpenter v. IRCOT, is winning on taxpayer standing. Governor Perry and many lawmakers approved instate tuition rates for illegal alien students in 2001. The sleight of hand on this was basically loosening "residency" requirements while failing to "affirmatively state" the benefit was designated to non-citizens in violation of federal laws.

    Hillary Clinton has not declared herself a candidate for president in 2016, but her schedule — including another stop in Los Angeles on Saturday — has heightened speculation that she is planning another run for the White House. Clinton smiled broadly as she took the stage at the Town and Gown Ballroom at the University of Southern California Saturday morning. "Thank you very, very much," Clinton said as the crowd continued to clap loudly. "Wow." She was there to accept an award from the Mexican American Leadership Initiative, or MALI, which seeks to encourage cross-border philanthropy and dialogue between Mexicans...

    Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) said late Tuesday that he supports securing the United States border with Mexico with a double-tiered fence but voted against an amendment to the “Gang of Eight” immigration bill that would have required exactly that. Rubio and his fellow Gang of Eight Republicans helped the Democrats kill an amendment from Sen. John Thune (R-SD) that would have required the double-tiered fence be built, as current law requires, before amnesty was granted to America’s at least 11 million illegal immigrants. The only other Republican to vote against the amendment was Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK). “I support Senator...

    (CNSNews.com) - In his prepared text for a speech he is delivering today at the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference and Latino Partnership for Conservative Principles, Sen. Rand Paul (R.-Ky.) said to illegal aliens who want to live and work in the United States: “[W]e will find a place for you.” Paul also said he envisions today’s illegal aliens becoming additional “taxpayers.” “Imagine 12 million people who are already here coming out of the shadows to become new taxpayers,” said Paul. Illegal aliens working in the United States today are not exempted from complying with the nation's tax laws anymore...

    Tucson's Mexican American studies program violates state law, an Arizona administrative law judge ruled Tuesday, paving the way for the program's possible demise. Judge Lewis D. Kowal affirmed a prior decision by the state's schools chief that the Tucson Unified School District's program violates a new law prohibiting divisive ethnic-studies classes. John Huppenthal, the state superintendent of public instruction, had deemed the program in violation in June. Among other things, the law bans classes primarily designed for a particular ethnic group or that "promote resentment toward a race or class of people." The school district appealed Huppenthal's ruling, and testimony...

    NAPLES, FL -- Presidential hopeful Newt Gingrich defended his immigration policy after days of criticism from other GOP contenders – reiterating that he does not support amnesty -- on Friday night before his largest crowd yet on the campaign trail. "I am not for amnesty for anyone. I am not for a path to citizenship for anybody who got here illegally," Gingrich told the crowd of roughly 750 people, many of whom were forced to stand in the hallway........... "I think the vast majority [of illegal immigrants] will go home and should go home and then should reapply. I do...

    Bill Clinton defended Rick Perry on Monday over a law the Texas governor signed that allows children of illegal immigrants to receive in-state college tuition. The former two-term Democratic president said in an interview with USA Today that it makes his “skin crawl” when Perry’s rivals for the GOP nod slam him “for one of the best things he did.”

    Seeking to jump start his flagging presidential campaign and establish his pro-growth and fiscal responsibility credentials, Governor Rick Perry is unveiling a tax plan that will not jump start the economy and is fiscally irresponsible. In a nutshell, Mr. Perry would give taxpayers a choice between filing under the current income tax system—with all its flaws—and an alternative flat tax 20 percent system. Under the latter, families could maintain their mortgage deductions if they earn less than $500,000, which is about 99 percent of taxpayers, and could declare exemptions of $12,500 for each family member. It seems appealing—a simplified tax...

    <p>CINCINNATI — First impressions are important in politics, and no one has introduced himself better in the campaign for the Republican presidential nomination than businessman Herman Cain.</p> <p>Cain has surged in just about every national or state poll this month, to the point that he is now in a virtual tie with former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney. The latest CBS-New York Times poll put him ahead of Romney, though within the margin of error. A Quinnipiac University poll of Ohio voters showed him narrowly ahead of Romney. Texas Gov. Rick Perry, once seen as the strongest challenger to Romney, ran fifth in both surveys.</p>

    Herman Cain's case against pundits who claim he's running a book tour rather than a presidential campaign just got a bit more complicated. Federal Election Commission records show that the former Godfather's Pizza executive paid more than $64,000 of his presidential campaign funds to his motivational speaking company, T.H.E. New Voice Inc., for copies of his own books, and for lodging, airfare, and resources, Bloomberg News reports. Previous rulings by the FEC have allowed candidates to use their campaign funds to buy their own books, as long as the purchase is at market value and the money goes to charity...

    Texas governor meeting Friday with Washington insiders after big fundraising dropoff. By Reid Wilson and Peter Bell Texas Gov. Rick Perry kicked off his presidential campaign with an aggressive fundraising schedule that quickly made him a front-runner for the Republican nomination. But reports his campaign filed with the Federal Election Commission show that his ability to attract big money fell off steeply in September—perhaps not coincidentally—at the same time a series of rocky debate performances threatened his early front-runner status. As Perry arrives on Friday in Washington for a private meeting with K Street insiders, the question is whether he...

    On his radio program this afternoon, Rush Limbaugh said that Christie's endorsment of Romney is proof that the GOP establishment is "desperate" for Romney to be the Republican nominee. "They're doing everything they can to make sure -- you know, Bachmann, Santorum, they're not in the top tier now, but they want to make sure they stay there." Limbaugh said, "Perry is the only genuine conservative threat to Romney, and this is an effort to take him out." Limbaugh added that "the thinking" on Herman Cain is that he does not have enough organization or money to compete with Romney....
  • Why won't Cain attack Romney? (vanity)

    After Palin, I've been leaning towards Cain. My only problem with him is that he's much more comfortable attacking Perry than Romney. I'm no fan of the bumbling debator from Texas who says his base has no heart, but this cozying up to Romney by Cain is concerning. Herman Cain remains my favorite, but he needs to show he's not running for VP. He needs to go after Romney on Romneycare tonight. If he doesn't, it may be time to look elsewhere. The one thing Rick Perry has going for him is that he's shown he's not afraid to take...

    MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) — Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry says he opposes a fence along the U.S. border with Mexico. Speaking to hundreds of New Hampshire voters at a private reception Saturday afternoon, the Texas governor says a fence would be ineffective and take too long to build. The comments, which produced one angry shout, expose a rift with some conservative voters over Perry's immigration record. Tea party activists in Texas have been particularly upset by his steady opposition to the fence. He also signed a law giving illegal immigrants in-state tuition for Texas universities.

    Rick Perry's campaign just responded to the attack ad that a pro-Michele Bachmann super PAC unveiled last night, which it is airing in South Carolina, and which hits him on his spending record as Texas governor: “Gov. Perry is a proven fiscal conservative, having cut taxes, signed six balanced budgets, and led Texas to become America’s top job-creating state,” said Ray Sullivan, RickPerry.org’s communications director. “Congresswoman Bachmann’s front-group ad is patently and provably false. Unlike Washington, the Texas budget is balanced, does not run deficits and limits spending, even as Texas added jobs and population in big numbers.”
