    President Barack Obama's unilateral decision to grant amnesty to hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants — and the threat of doing the same for countless more — is altering the nation's landscape, but not in the way the Founding Fathers intended, Rep. Louie Gohmert told Newsmax TV on Tuesday. "Holy smokes, this guy truly is fundamentally transforming America, but not into anything that the Founders ever dreamed," he said on "America's Forum." "These are people who are being given amnesty who will eventually be able to vote if they're not already, who have no idea what it takes to maintain...

    As per its common dictionary definition, theft is described as “..the taking of another person’s property without that person’s permission or consent with the intent to deprive the rightful owner of it.” To commit a theft a person or entity must act in a state of mens rea or guilty mind and with full intent to deprive the victim of property rightfully belonging to him or her. For thousands of years those in power have taken what does not belong to them and given it to others with no claim to such property in order to boost their own ego...

The GOP-E Leadership in the US House, (Boehner, Cantor, and Ryan), is always gullible to Obama's tricks. Consequently, Boehner, Cantor and Ryan, have all pledged to ram through this unpopular Obama Amnesty Bill due to Obama's illegal decision to flood the USA with children from Mexico and Central America.

    Americans now are being blasted as “racist” for the simple act of waving an American flag. It happened Monday in California to a small group of protesters who waved U.S. flags in front of a school where officials had banned the practice to avoid violence threatened by Hispanic students celebrating Cinco de Mayo. The controversy developed in 2010, when school officials ordered students not to wear U.S. flag-themed shirts on the Mexican holiday. The ban has been upheld by a federal appeals court. The controversy brought a small group of protesters out Monday, and the community reacted immediately. “What’s wrong...

Issa, an influential Republican who leads the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, described the legislation as a “come-from-the-shadows” effort that would allow the government to do a full accounting of those who are in the U.S. illegally. Immigrants in this new status would be able to travel to their native country while on this temporary visa, he said.

    Everybody is focused on the centrality of immigration reform as a driver of Hispanic vote. And that’s an accurate perception to a significant degree. But over recent months we’ve seen more and more polling which shows that Hispanics aren’t voting for Democrats because of the immigration issue. They’re voting for Democrats because they turn out disproportionately to be Democrats. That might sound like word play but here’s what I mean. On issue after issue, Hispanics appear to either overwhelmingly or more than the public at large support the Democratic position. Today we had a poll showing that Hispanics overwhelmingly support...

But not everyone found Burgess’ crack funny. According to several people who attended the June 5th gathering, Rubio glared at Burgess. This account, confirmed by multiple members and staffers, sheds light on what is perhaps the most politically obvious — and perpetually underplayed — conservative argument against providing citizenship to the nation’s illegal immigrants. With all the noise surrounding the debate over policy specifics — security measures, enforcement triggers, future flow,...

    Not a single word in the 844-page "Border Security, Economic Opportunity and Immigration Modernization Act" introduced by Senator Marco Rubio and the "Gang of Eight" addresses the controversial practice of "birthright citizenship." Birthright citizenship is the common description given to the automatic grant of U.S. citizenship to babies born in the U.S. regardless of the citizenship status of the parents. Many experts agree with the verdict of law professor Lino Graglia -- that the practice generates "perhaps the greatest possible inducement to illegal entry." The failure of Congress to confront the subject is nothing new. The "four pillars" of the...
