  • Common Sense Immigration Reform

    There is no question that America has a range of difficult problems facing her; the economy, unemployment, Social Security, Medicare, and healthcare are pushing our great country to the brink. However, there is an underlying problem which is a contributing factor to all of these problems – illegal immigration. The U.S. Government estimates that there are between 8 to 12 million illegal immigrants currently residing within our borders but independent studies have shown that number is significantly higher. The Californians for Population Study (CAPS) released a report by four leading immigration experts who believe that there is somewhere between 20...

    After the FoxNews/Google debate, it had begun to crystallize in the view of many Republicans is that Rick Perry isn’t the candidate many had hoped. Capturing the straw poll in Florida on Saturday, Herman Cain reached new heights as Perry’s slide down hill has accelerated. Bachmann has peaked and begun to taper off, while Gingrich, Paul, Santorum and Huntsman continue to struggle in the middle-to-low single digits. This leaves Mitt Romney out front, not because he’s such a great candidate, but because to date, his chief opponents have grossly underperformed. This begs the question most conservatives want most to ask:...

    After his win today in Florida's Presidency 5 straw poll, former Godfather Pizza CEO Herman Cain declared, "This is a sign of our growing momentum and my candidacy that cannot be ignored." With all due respect to Mr. Cain, it is more likely a sign that none of the candidates have been able to gain any lasting momentum and there is still no clear frontrunner whose message, skills and record are good enough for primary voters.

    President Barack Obama hit another American city today claiming to care about the nation's unemployment crisis but showing his real concern is for his own political future. His chosen backdrop of the Brent Spence Bridge which links Ohio and Kentucky was the perfect setting for an attack against two of his political opponents House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Kentucky). But his usual mixture of sarcasm and lies were no match for the truth Senator McConnell ably delivered from the Senate floor.

All true.Problem is, we need people at the top with practical common sense and a desire to win. These people need to be aggressive.

    Like Queequeg in the 1851 novel Moby Dick, by Herman Melville, President Obama began building his own coffin with his “American Jobs Bill” speech last night. None of his proposals will spur growth in the private sector and I believe he knows it and simply doesn’t care. As long as the economy continues to tank and America continues to lose influence in the world, he’ll be happy to begin his campaign now and blame Republicans in every speech for not getting on board, even though I’m sure they will support many of his proposals like 1) the extension of unemployment...

    As expected, President Obama’s jobs speech was full of political pabulum and worn out Democrat talking points straight out of the Bolshevik takeover of Russia. I predicted earlier this week, the president’s plan would be little more than a speech. He has no plan to send congress so that they can “pass it now” as the president repeated seventeen times during his speech. Mr. President, if passing a bill, which doesn’t exist, is so important – why did you wait almost three years to take action? Furthermore, why is there no bill for Congress to take action on?

    In Governor Palin’s speech in Iowa on Saturday, she spoke about crony capitalism and about the importance of vetting a candidate based on his or her record: “So, please, you must vet a candidate’s record. You must know their ability to successfully reform and actually fix problems that they’re going to claim they inherited. Real reform never sits well with the entrenched special interests, and that’s why the true voices of reform are so quickly demonized.” These words really stuck out to me.

    If there was any question that next month's special election in New York's 9th congressional district will be a referendum on President Barack Obama's policies, yesterday's New York Times endorsement removes all doubt. Not surprisingly, the left-leaning paper's editorial board has chosen to support Democrat David Weprin in the September 13 contest to replace disgraced Congressman Anthony Weiner. But the reasons given for that support have little to do with the candidate's qualifications and everything to do with the Obama agenda.

    Before I began to research Rick Perry's record, I perceived him to be nothing more than a garden variety southern Republican governor, probably conservative, certainly more conservative than his 2010 opponent Kay Bailey Hutchison. But the fact that he had such a spirited challenge from both sides in the GOP primary, both from the moderates AND the Conservatives, made me wonder just how conservative he really was. Just a bit of research revealed the gardasil mandate on preteen girls and their parents (and the cronysim associated with it), his full throated advocacy of open borders, including a pipeline for illegals...

    Iran said on Friday it did not expect an attack from Israel or the United States triggered by the long-running dispute over its nuclear programme. "The possibility of such an attack (from Israel or the U.S.) is almost zero," Mottaki said, via a translator, in an interview with Turkish broadcaster NTV during a visit to Turkey. However, when asked whether it meant Iran was ready to freeze any expansion of its nuclear programme in return for the U.N. Security Council halting further sanctions measures against it, the source said "not at all".

The doctrine states that all whites are collectively guilty, white oppressors must “cease to be” and equates white society to the Antichrist, calling whites the “symbol of depravity” and “the enemy of mankind.” These are genocidal religious concepts, that white society is too evil to exist.

    Many argue that Bishop Williamson's ideas are not the ideas of the Society of Saint Pius X (SSPX). This is theoretically true. The SSPX's statutes and theological positions do not touch upon Fascism and Antisemitism. But there is an undercurrent among many of the faithful and priests that tends in that direction. This undercurrent has been exacerbated by thirty years of indoctrination from Bishop Williamson. It has also been saddening to see that the SSPX has done little publicly to curb or even denounce the radicals that make use of their organization. The SSPX is in a precarious situation. The...

Breivik was charged with two violent attacks in and around Oslo: a bombing in the capital that killed seven, and a shooting spree at a youth political retreat that killed more than 80, but though he was called a Christian for these most unChristian acts, Breivik’s own words reveal he isn’t very religious and actually prefers science over scripture.
