    Sunday on Fox News Channels Fox & Friends Weekend, Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) pushed back on Buzzfeed report a day earlier that said Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump may have reversed course on his immigration policy proposals. The junior Alabama senator told co-host Tucker Carlson ending the lawlessness must be the first priority of the president. He has not changed his view, but he had a great meeting with people who had different ideas as I understand. I wasnt there, but he had a good discussion. He listened to all the different views.

    U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents working with Mexican immigration officials have found thousands of non-Hispanic illegal immigrants crossing Mexicos southern border to make their way to Texas. The extra-continental immigrants enter countries as far south as Brazil and make their way to the United States, often with forged travel documents. The reality is that the vast majority of the people that Mexico encounters [on its southern border] that are extra-continental will eventually end up on our border, a U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) official told Reuters this week. The Reuters article confirmed the Syrian nationals reported at...

    President Hillary and her liberal activist courts will ensure Democrat rule over America for generations by awarding amnesty and citizenship to tens of millions of illegal aliens, er, undocumented citizens, and they'll throw open our borders to flood the country with tens of millions more. And they'll set up government programs to help them sign-up for welfare, food stamps, free housing, free phones, free healthcare and even help them register to vote as democrats. Republicans will be wandering in the wilderness for the next 40 years and more. Don't let it happen. Vote Trump!

    In an on-air interview with KVI-AMs morning host John Carlson in Seattle on Wednesday, presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump blasted the idea of so-called sanctuary cities, and said that as president, he would withhold funding from those cities. He called such cities a haven for criminals. We have to have law and order in our country, Trump said. We have no law and order. When you look at the people who are pouring in and the borders are so porous. I want people to come into the country a hundred percent, he explained, but they have to come in legally....

    While much of the country displayed their solidarity with Mexican people by wearing their biggest sombreros for Cinco de Drinko, a Chicano has made the best hat yet. A young Chicano from East L.A. decided to mix satire and a little bit of creativity by mocking Donald Trump's "Make America Great Again" slogan and creating red caps reading "Make America Mexico Again." His latest activist-wear didn't receive much backlash as expected, but hundreds of order requests.

While many Americans have begun to open their eyes to Americas plight, most are still oblivious to the factors that led to our downfall. Recently, the media has been touting recovery, but there are numerous urgent changes that need to be implemented before the U.S. can even think that we are emerging from todays recession/depression.

    In a year of truly abysmal ideas this is easily the worst. Some on the right want to compile a blacklist to punish conservatives who support Donald Trump. They would prove their loyalty to conservative principles by acting like leftist thought police.

    Donald Trump was the clear favorite in todays winner-take-all Arizona primary, even before the Brussels terrorist attacks. The immigration issue and the flood of early voters favors him, as does the fact that some of those early voters will have cast ballots for Marco Rubio before he dropped out last Tuesday night. If they had known Rubio would no longer be a candidate, many of those voters might have gone with Cruz. But polls have been tricky and often erratic this year (think Michigan and the surprise win of Bernie Sanders). For example, the latest poll showing a 14 point...

On Monday, Trump told CNN that the U.S. should greatly reduce its support of NATO. "It's too much and frankly it's a different world than it was when we originally conceived of the idea," Trump said of the US-European security alliance. Cruz said he found it "striking" that the terror attacks occurred on the day after his rival candidate Donald Trump called for reducing the U.S....

    Few professional analysts seriously expected six months ago that Donald Trump could win the Republican nomination. But after Tuesday night, it is a clear possibility. How much of a possibility? To get that answer right, it is important to understand some things about the Trump phenomenon. Perhaps most important, Trump's campaign is not a Tea Party phenomenon. While there's been a tendency to try to lump Trump in with various G.O.P. insurgencies of the last few years, that role is best filled by Sen. Ted Cruz, who really occupies the "Tea Party lane" of the G.O.P. primary more cleanly. Instead,...

Obamatrade is the combination of and intersection between the Trade Promotion Authority (TPA), which passed Congress last year and greases the skids for the congressional approval of various trade deals by lowering U.S. Senate vote thresholds from 60 votes to 51 votes and killing the ability of Congress to amend those deals, and those various trade deals.

    President Barack Obama’s 2012 amnesty for “Dreamers”–illegal aliens who entered the United States as children–likely created the conditions under which one of the San Bernardino terrorists could enter the country. Obama announced his unilateral policy, Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), the “Dream Act by fiat,” in June 2012 after immigration reform activists warned that he could risk losing support from Latino voters in his re-election campaign. Obama infamously broke his promise to pass amnesty in his first term, and risked being outflanked by Republican proposals authored by Sen.

    However, Rubio is still the loser of this debate. Unlike the Florida man, Cruz never co-sponsored immigration reform with Chuck Schumer, but instead opposed that legislation. And Cruz, though he seems to have favored amnesty (in the sense of a path to legalization), never favored a path to citizenship, as Rubio did. To me, and probably a great many other Republicans, granting citizenship to those who violated our immigration laws is significantly more egregious than permitting them to remain here with legal status. But this doesn’t mean Cruz is the winner. Why? Because Donald Trump has insisted that illegal immigrants...

    After insisting that enough damage had been done and swearing off future insults toward Jeb Bush, Donald Trump on Friday returned to badgering his favorite presidential foe. In the fallout of CNN's Republican debate in Las Vegas, Trump has once again taken up needling the former Florida governor. Bush, eager to energize his sagging campaign, brought the fight to Trump on the debate stage, repeatedly talking over the billionaire as the pair tangled. "I have an idea for @JebBush whose campaign is a disaster. Try using your last name & don't be ashamed of it!" he tweeted Friday. I have...

    A couple of weeks ago, I wrote: “Let’s not mince words, Donald Trump is a bigot and a racist.” I cited a long list of incidents in which he targeted women, Latinos, African Americans, Muslims, Asians and the disabled. Here’s what I heard back from Trump’s defenders: “Let’s not mince words,” somebody tweeted under the name Helios Megistos. “Milbank is an anti-white parasite and a bigoted kike supremacist.” “[Trump] may well be a bigot and a racist,” one Michael Banfield wrote me via email. “But one thing is certain: The only thing missing from your photo is a [vulgar word...
  • Fox News Poll: Trump jumps, Cruz climbs, Carson sinks in GOP race (Trump 39%, Cruz 18%)

    Donald Trump, a candidate even Republicans once considered a side show, increases his lead yet again in the nomination race, according to the latest Fox News national poll. The poll also finds Ted Cruz ticking up, Marco Rubio slipping, and Ben Carson dropping. Trump hits a high of 39 percent among Republican primary voters, up from 28 percent a month ago. The increase comes mainly from men, white evangelical Christians, and voters without a college degree -- and at the expense of Carson. ... The favorites among white evangelical Christians are Trump (39 percent), Cruz (26 percent) and Carson (12...

    Florida Republican Primary voters continue to be fake as hell. They're letting the men they elected at one point to serve as our senator and governor linger in polls of their home state. In the first poll of Florida Republicans taking since this week's debate, it turns out that our state's GOP voters still have a thing for ol' Helmet Hair but now have a growing fondness for Texas-brand Rubio, Ted Cruz. The survey, conducted by Opinion Savvy and sponsored by the Jacksonville Times-Union and Fox 13 Tampa Bay, called up 555 registered Republicans in Florida on Wednesday. Here's the...

    There are terrorists in our midst and they arrived here using legal means right under the noses of the federal law enforcement agencies whose mission is to stop them. That is not due to malfeasance or lack of effort on the part of these officers; it is due to the restrictions placed on them by the Obama administration. I was a firsthand witness to how these policies deliberately prevented scrutiny of Islamist groups. The two San Bernardino jihadists, Syed Farook and Tashfeen Malik, may have benefited from the administration's closure of an investigation I initiated on numerous groups infiltrating radicalized...
  • Obama: Security Clearance for Muslim Brotherhood, Jihadists, Not Jewish Dentists

    Jihadists, Yes, Pro-Israel Jews, No. If you're a member of a Islamic terror group, you can and will get security clearance. If you're working at Fort Hood, you can run slideshows supporting terrorists and handing out Soldier of Allah business cards, and there's no problem. But if you're an elderly Jewish dentist volunteering at a Naval clinic, it's another story, as Bret Stephens reports. When Gershon Pincus turned 60, he decided he wanted to give something back to his country. The Brooklyn-born father of four had maintained a successful private dental practice in New York City for 35 years. As...
  • Pro-Bush super PAC's new ad (Attacks Trump): Bush is 'tough enough'

    A super PAC supporting Jeb Bush's presidential campaign unveiled a new ad on Thursday promoting the former governor as "tough enough." Right to Rise's ad highlights Bush's conflict with Donald Trump during Tuesday night's GOP presidential debate. "One candidate tough enough to take on the bully," a narrator says as the ad shows Bush in a split-screen with Trump from the debate. "One candidate tough enough to take on [the Islamic State]. Jeb will destroy ISIS and keep America safe." The ad closes with the narrator saying "tested and proven leadership matters."
