    ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Michaela Chavez is a former Democrat who says she’s been a supporter of Donald Trump from Day One. She likes how his administration is handling the economy and feels he’s negotiating better trade deals for the country. And when it comes to immigration, the Albuquerque resident supports the president’s desire to build a wall on the Mexican border. “I’m all for immigration, as long as it is done the right way,” she said. Chavez is convinced Trump is building a better future for her family. She is the type of person Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale hopes...

    Wednesday, the entire leadership team for Latinos for Trump was suspended from Twitter, according to a press release. “On September 18th, Twitter management suspended the accounts for the entire leadership team of Latinos for Trump organization, who operates under Americanos. As a company that claim’s [sic] its purpose is ‘to serve the public conversation,’ the unjustified suspensions of these accounts is not only contrary to their stated purpose, but also silences the voice of a significant minority group,” the release said. Twitter censorships is a topic with which we are familiar at LauraLoomer.us. The company suspended our own Laura Loomer,...

  • New Mexico’s free-college plan could be a game-changer for student debt in America (Math is hard)

    09/19/2019 5:27:37 AM PDT · by qwerty1234 · 59 replies
    New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham unveiled a plan Wednesday to make public college tuition free for all state residents. It’s a “an absolute game-changer” for the state, according to Grisham, a Democrat. Experts say it may well provide an example of good practice for state and local officials across the country who are crafting their own free college programs. If state lawmakers approve the proposal, the New Mexico Opportunity Scholarship program will pay for all state-college tuition and fees that aren’t already covered by federal grants and a state lottery. That’s an unpaid gap ranging from 25% to 40%...

    During the Democrat debate Thursday night, Jorge Ramos challenged Joe Biden on his immigration record, particularly his past support for a border wall, and the Obama-Biden administration's record on deportations. "Why should Latinos trust you?" Ramos asked."What Latinos should look at is ... comparing [Trump] to [Obama] is outrageous," Biden said. "Number one, we didn't lock up people up in cages, we didn't separate families... we didn't do all of those things."Umm, Joe... yes, you did.

    LAREDO, Texas -- The white tents that sit here on the very edge of the U.S border, with Mexico a literal stone’s throw away, represent one of the jewels in the crown of the Trump administration’s recent efforts to get a grip on the immigration crisis. They are the temporary courtrooms set up as part of the Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP) -- known colloquially as the “Remain in Mexico” policy. That policy, established earlier this year, involves sending migrants who are trying to claim asylum back to Mexico during their proceedings -- instead of releasing them into the U.S. while...

    ALBUQUERQUE — In one of the boldest state-led efforts to expand access to higher education, New Mexico is unveiling a plan on Wednesday to make tuition at its public colleges and universities free for all state residents, regardless of family income. The move comes as many American families grapple with the rising cost of higher education and as discussions about free public college gain momentum in state legislatures and on the presidential debate stage. Nearly half of the states, including New York, Oregon and Tennessee, have guaranteed free two- or four-year public college to some students. But the New Mexico...

    RIO RANCHO – In his first visit to New Mexico since winning the White House, President Donald Trump Monday night pledged to “campaign for every vote” and defy political pundits by adding the state to his win column in 2020. ADVERTISEMENTSKIP During a rally at the Santa Ana Star Center attended by an estimated 9,000 people, Trump touted an oil drilling boom in southeast New Mexico that has driven state revenue levels to an all-time high and cited a spike in business applications statewide before asking the crowd to “give me a little bit more time.” “The Democrats want to...

    If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again. This is the Democratic strategy to flip Texas on the electoral map from red to blue. And truth be told, they are getting close—too close. How did this happen? What are the GOP and Republican National Committee doing about this? The Democrats have had Texas in their sights for awhile. You saw their push in the 2018 midterm elections against incumbent Senator Ted Cruz. They came close to defeating Cruz with Beto O’Rouke— an ultra lefty open borders empty suit. A lot of outside money flooded into O’Rourke’s effort, but that...

    Just after securing the GOP presidential nomination in May 2016, Donald Trump landed in New Mexico and declared to a rally crowd, “We’re going to win this state.” Six months later, Hillary Clinton beat him there by eight percentage points. But even as Democrats have increased power in New Mexico, President Trump is convinced he can compete. On Monday, he returns to the state for the first time since taking office to hold a re-election rally near Albuquerque.

    To listen to most Democrats, they’ve got President Trump on the run when it comes to immigration... But anyone who believes sanctuary-movement backers and Dems seeking to decriminalize illegal immigration are beating the president needs a reality check. On Wednesday, the Supreme Court ruled to permit the administration to go on refusing to accept applications for asylum from migrants who have passed through another country without being denied asylum there... That comes on the heels of the court’s decision in July to allow Trump to use money from the defense budget to build the border wall... a sign that the...
  • Wyoming delegation applauds repeal of Waters of the United States rule

    WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senators Mike Enzi and John Barrasso and Congresswoman Liz Cheney, all R-Wyo., applauded the Environmental Protection Agency for announcing final plans to repeal and replace the Obama-era Waters of the United States (WOTUS) regulation. "I am glad the administration is repealing the excessively burdensome Waters of the United States rule, which was a massive regulatory overreach that should have never been allowed in the first place," Enzi said. "This rule gave the federal government power to regulate nearly every creek or pond. States know best how to manage our resources. This announcement is good news for...

    Tweet blaming Jews for wars follows her effort to block Trump from Twitter for “hate speech.” Valerie Plame, who was outed in a press leak as an undercover CIA operative during former President George W. Bush’s administration, soon became a darling of the Left for her anti-Bush stance. She was able to successfully portray herself as the victim of neo-conservatives’ payback for what her husband, former ambassador Joseph Wilson, did in publicly challenging the Bush administration’s explanation for invading Iraq. Ms. Plame has not dropped out of sight. She campaigned for Hillary Clinton during the 2016 presidential election cycle and...

    Valerie Plame had to know what she was tweeting. Plame retweeted a virulently antisemitic article by a well-known bigot, which she characterized as “thoughtful.” Now she’s trying to make excuses, but they don’t wash. The article itself, by Phillip Giraldi, contains the usual antisemitic tropes: Jews are guilty of dual loyalty; they control politicians, the media and entertainment; they want the US to fight wars for the country to which they have real allegiance – Israel; they are dangerous to America. Giraldi has been pushing this garbage for years and Plame is one of his fans. But this particular article...

    Something zesty to cleanse the palate. Remember her? Outed as a CIA analyst by Richard Armitage in Plamegate, she was a cause celebre of the anti-war, anti-Bush left in the middle of the last decade, right around the time that Cindy Sheehan was. Sheehan turned out to be a bit … eccentric politically, but oh well.Not good ol’ Valerie Plame.The politically correct term is “globalists” but we live in a politically incorrect age. Anyway, much outrage and dark humor ensued on Twitter after she tweeted that, leading to Plame’s first ill-advised attempt at spin. Chill out, she responded. The...
