  • Baby Boom or Bust? Media Gets it Wrong – Again

    08/11/2018 11:49:52 AM PDT · by Tolerance Sucks Rocks · 19 replies
    According to recent media accounts, America is in a population death spiral. Open-borders activists have seized on the narrative to promote ever-looser immigration policies.But the narrative is wrong.In fact, women in the U.S. are more likely to be mothers than in the past, and they are having more children, reports the Pew Research Center.The Pew study found that women have 2.07 children during their lives on average – up from 1.86 in 2006, the lowest on record. Family size is also up. In 2016, mothers at the end of their childbearing years had had about 2.42 children, compared with 2.31...
  • Koch-Backed CATO Institute: ‘Time for the U.S. to Have Open Borders’

    The Cato Institute, a think tank partially founded by the billionaire, pro-mass immigration Koch brothers, is advocating for full open borders to the United States. In an op-ed for USA Today, the Cato Institute’s Director of Economic Studies, Jeffrey Miron, says the U.S. “has nothing to fear, and much to gain, from open borders,” saying that Americans should “forget” about putting a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border to stop illegal immigration. Miron downplayed the negative impact open borders would have on American citizens, writing: Immigrants will not flood into America, although the rate of immigration might increase. Instead, much of...

    Former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney tore into President Trump on Monday after Trump challenged the intelligence community's assessment that Russia meddled in the 2016 election, calling Trump's behavior "disgraceful and detrimental to our democratic principles." Romney's comments came hours after Trump held a joint news conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, Finland, in which he questioned whether Russia was behind efforts to meddle in the 2016 election. "President Trump's decision to side with Putin over American intelligence agencies is disgraceful and detrimental to our democratic principles," Romney, who is running for Senate in Utah, said in a...

    They knew armed guards would be required to protect their compounds from the angry mobs. But how would they pay the guards once money was worthless? What would stop the guards from choosing their own leader? The billionaires considered using special combination locks on the food supply that only they knew. Or making guards wear disciplinary collars of some kind in return for their survival... That’s when it hit me:...they were preparing for a digital future that had a whole lot less to do with making the world a better place than it did with transcending the human condition altogether...

    Governor Brown's aberrant style of leadership has been as maniacal as a third-World dictator, and his legacy is a complete and total failure, tainted by frequent lunatic ravings. Food or Fish, Liberty or Oppression, Victim or Fighter? We Californians have many decisions to make about our future, thanks to our maniacal third-World wanna-be dictator-Governor Jerry Brown—a childless Marxist, who cares only about himself. Brown has never lived a life that calls upon one to sacrifice for the benefit of one’s own family and children. And it shows. The narcissistic manic Gov. Jerry Brown, California’s four-term Democratic Governor is mostly responsible...

    On Saturday, conservative talker Mark Levin offered his top three picks to fill the vacancy on the Supreme Court left by the retirement of Associate Justice Anthony Kennedy. In a Facebook post, Levin named Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) as his first choice, followed by 11th Circuit U.S. Appeals Court Judge William Pryor as his second choice and Seventh Circuit U.S. Appeals Court Judge Amy Barrett as his third choice.

Costa included a link to an Associated Press story about Lee casting a "protest" vote in the 2016 presidential election for independent candidate Evan McMullin.

    The failed former secretary of state remains a hashledemaine. Yes, I made the word up. Because nothing really describes the mixture of chaos, lunacy, illogic, and absent dignity that characterizes Madeleine Albright, who once ran U.S. foreign policy back when Bill Clinton was president, famously chasing Yasser Arafat around a parking lot in Paris and most recently declared "a special place in hell" for U.S. women who somehow failed to cast a vote for Hillary Clinton. Now she's gotten even battier as she grows less relevant. The former secretary of state, who's shilling a book called Fascism: A Warning, is...

    President Trump is scheduled to announce one of the most important decisions of his presidency on Monday: the name of his second nominee to the Supreme Court, to replace retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy. This will be a defining moment for President Trump’s legacy. Every president is remembered for his nominations to the Supreme Court – and not always positively. Past Republican presidents have repeatedly nominated justices who failed to live up to the principles they were selected to represent. For example, President George H.W. Bush’s selection of liberal David Souter was one of the most consequential errors of his presidency....
  • Indianapolis Church Turns Open Borders Activist, Cages Holy Family

    Speaking of leftist insanity and news going under the radar, on Tuesday, an Episcopalian church in Indianapolis decided to protest President Trump’s zero tolerance immigration policy by putting statues of Mary, Joseph and the baby Jesus in a cage of sorts, topped with barbed wire. Well, I thought they were caging them to keep liberals from stealing baby Jesus. Rev. Stephen Carlsen told the Indianapolis Star : “I know what the Bible said “We’re supposed to love our neighbors as ourselves.” This is just another example of how much of the church chooses to stay willfully ignorant of the facts.
  • When Democrats cry 'Abolish ICE,' they really mean 'abolish borders'

    Are we going to have immigration limits or not? That's the question underlying the calls for the abolition of Immigration and Customs and Enforcement (ICE), the bureau within the Department of Homeland Security responsible for upholding our immigration rules away from the borders. The push to #AbolishICE is threatening to become a litmus test for Democratic politicians. It has been embraced by presidential hopefuls like Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) and Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), as well as other far-left figures such as New York Mayor Bill de Blasio, actress-turned-New York gubernatorial candidate Cynthia Nixon, and a number of House members. Despite...

    Portland open-borders protesters berated a young female KATU reporter over her appearance until the abuse became so over the top that she was forced off air. “Tacky-a** heels, those are ugly as f***…make your face look a little more appealing,” a protester, who looked like she hadn’t showered in a week, yelled at the reporter while she was on-air. The leftist abusers hurled sexist insults at the reporter while claiming that the station had reported that Immigration and Customs Enforcement could not be abolished. In a post on Facebook about the verbal abuse that she was subjected to, the reporter,...

    New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is calling for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement to be abolished, saying that the agency has "become a punitive, negative tool for division," and is "no longer acceptable." In calling for the agency to be disbanded, de Blasio echoed comments made by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a political newcomer who vanquished Rep. Joe Crowley (D-N.Y.) in a Democratic primary race on Tuesday. "You need some kind of agency to deal with immigration, but ICE is not that," de Blasio said on "The Brian Lehrer Show" on WYNC. "ICE has proven it can't be that. ICE's...

    Democratic lawmakers and candidates are increasingly seeking the elimination of Immigration and Customs Enforcement as part of their suite of demands in D.C.'s heated border battle. The calls reflect not only the deepening divide between the two partisan poles on immigration -- with one side seeking a border wall, and the other looking to dismantle the lead enforcement agency -- but the growing influence of the progressive wing. More and more Democratic politicians have embraced such causes as 'Medicare for all' and a federal jobs guarantee. Now, they're getting behind the call to abolish ICE, with gusto. Perhaps no 2018...

    In 2015, in the lead up to the 2016 presidential election, Bernie Sanders infamously insisted that open borders is “a Koch Brothers proposal,” and free immigration is a “right-wing proposal, which essentially says that there is no United States.” Vox’s Ezra Klein, Bernie’s interviewer, quite correctly observed that open borders would “make the global poor richer.” As philosopher Jason Brennan writes in “Libertarianism: What Everyone Needs to Know,” “When economists estimate the welfare losses from immigration restrictions, they tend to conclude that eliminating immigration restrictions would double world GDP.” Sanders’ assertions of concern for the global poor ring awfully hollow...

The legislation I'm filing this week would prohibit separating families, would mandate that kids should stay with their parents." He said his bill would double the number of federal immigration judges to ensure that asylum cases are heard within two weeks. "If the claim is not valid, and many of those coming here illegally don't have valid claims for asylum,...

    WASHINGTON — U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz announced emergency legislation Monday evening to keep immigrant families together after they cross the border into the United States. The legislation follows comments Cruz made on Saturday that essentially called for more resources to adjudicate asylum claims. He also called for keeping immigrant kids with their parents as long as those adults are not associated with criminal activity. "All Americans are rightly horrified by the images we are seeing on the news, children in tears pulled away from their mothers and fathers," Cruz wrote in a release. "This must stop. Now. We can end...
