  • House GOP Plans To Save Obama With Immigration Reform (Ted Cruz speaks against amnesty)

    Immigration: President Obama expects House Republicans to jump-start his presidency by embracing amnesty for illegal aliens. But if it does, the GOP could wreck its chances to take back the Senate. Republicans should own the issue of immigration. After all, the last time — 1986 — the nation took the "comprehensive" approach that Democrats now propose, nothing ended up being fixed in exchange for the amnesty for millions of illegals. And today, insisting on securing the border before doing anything else is no-lose politically. Yet the House GOP is poised to use a piecemeal strategy as cover to enact, more...

    With the immigration scam well underway in Washington, the only real takeaway for the outside observer is that the Beltway Establishment truly thinks we are idiots. There is no other way to explain the Establishment’s tsunami of faulty premises, bogus clichés, moronic advertisements and bald-faced lies. There is no immigration “crisis.” It’s not a “crisis” when people who shouldn’t be here anyway don’t have all the privileges of people who do have a right to be here. That’s how it should be. There are a lot of people who shouldn’t be here who are here, but this is a “problem,”...
  • Boehner: President Obama's Wall Street Friends All Benefit From The Democrats' Bailout Bill

    President Obama likes to say we need to clean up Wall Street. But let’s be clear: He is pushing a job-killing bailout bill for Wall Street that benefits his top financial contributor from the 2008 campaign – a firm that just happens to be under investigation by the SEC for defrauding investors. Despite the President’s rhetoric, his support for the Democrats’ bailout bills gives big Wall Street banks a permanent, taxpayer-funded safety net by designating them “too big to fail.” Just whose side is President Obama on? Here are the facts: WALL STREET GIVES GENEROUSLY TO THEN-CANDIDATE OBAMA: • Goldman...

    FOLSOM, Calif. - A federal judge on Tuesday moved to place the state prison system's troubled health care operations into receivership, complicating a massive prison overhaul bill signed into law hours earlier by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger. U.S. District Judge Thelton Henderson, ruling in a class-action lawsuit brought against the California Department of Corrections, said the state's 162,000 prisoners "are being subjected to an unconstitutional system fraught with medical neglect and malfeasance." Poor care has been blamed for the deaths of more than two dozen inmates. "Defendants themselves have conceded that a significant number of prisoners have died as a direct...

    As you know, pro-life activists who have peacefully picketed or prayed at abortion clinics have been prosecuted or hit with civil lawsuits and ordered to pay huge fines. Some have been forced to use bankruptcy protection to save their property and protect their family.Now Sen. Charles Schumer of New York has introduced an amendment to the bankruptcy reform bill that specifically prevents pro-life activists from using bankruptcy protection. His amendment only applies to pro-life protesters. Other protesters will still be able to use bankruptcy laws.Is this fair in America - are we second-class Americans?The bankruptcy bill will be voted on...
