    Full Title: Supreme Court’s conservatives overturn precedent as liberals ask ‘which cases the court will overrule next’ The Supreme Court’s conservative majority overturned a 41-year-old precedent Monday, prompting a pointed warning from liberal justices about “which cases the court will overrule next.” The issue in Monday’s 5 to 4 ruling was one of limited impact: whether states have sovereign immunity from private lawsuits in the courts of other states. In 1979, the Supreme Court ruled that there is no constitutional right to such immunity, although states are free to extend it to one another and often do. But the court’s...

    Trump is the centerpiece of a three-pronged sea change that is re-configuring U.S. and world governance Donald Trump is destined to become the most transformative president in U.S. history! Here’s why: Trump is the centerpiece of a three-pronged sea change that is re-configuring U.S. and world governance. Deeply-embedded but overlooked traits of the American psyche are empowering Trump to circumvent political convention and unite a fragmented citizenry!

    The prog-left, of which Trudeau is one, are stealing the sovereignty of both our countries It’s become a disturbing North American trend of which the American and Canadian masses remain blissfully unaware: governments handing the outcome of federal elections over to foreigners. In the U.S., which gets far more media attention than Canada, Democrats who have stalled Immigration Reform for four decades running, seem to have cornered President Donald J. Trump on his insistence for southern border protection. The Democrats are not promoting wide open borders based on altruism—they count on incoming migrants to keep them in office by giving...

    America is full of visible and invisible walls. In the first half of the last century, our politics had been dedicated to tearing down the walls between classes, races and genders. And then in the second half of the century, radicals terrified of what that meant for their plans, began building them up again while adding new divisions until every city, workplace and even family is divided by many invisible walls. Walls represent divisions. Whether you support or oppose a particular wall depends on whether you believe a division is legally, morally or philosophically legitimate. The walls that the radicals...

If not, don't go': Egypt's president decries migrants heading to Europe and refusing to integrate instead of fixing their own countries. Egypt's President has told his people they should not expect the West to 'open their doors' to migrants who refuse to integrate. Abdel Fattah al-Sisi said that 'every country has the right to protect its people and their interests.' Speaking at a World Youth Forum in Sharm-el-Sheikh, Egypt, the country's leader told guests they had to 'completely abide by the laws, customs, traditions and culture'...

    In an exclusive interview with UN News, Louise Arbour, the UN Special Representative for International Migration, said on Tuesday that the stated intention of several countries (including Hungary, Poland, the Czech Republic and Austria) to pull out of the Global Compact for migration has seriously affected the spirit of multilateralism. Ms. Arbour pointed out that the text was agreed following extensive negotiations – involving all Member States apart from the United States – that lasted for months, during which each country advanced their own interests and extracted concessions from others, adding: “I think it reflects very poorly on those who...

    No court can ever force the president to allow any alien to enter the country. No such lawsuit could ever have legitimate standing, and no such decision could have any constitutional moorings. If we don’t understand that, we are no longer a sovereign Republic. Monday night, Jon Tigar, an Obama-appointed judge of the United States District Court for the Northern District of California, a forum chosen by the ACLU, penned what is essentially an op-ed expressing his desire that Trump’s order on asylum be temporarily enjoined. His desire is just as binding as my desire to place an injunction on...
  • Caravan Migrants Say When 20,000 Reach Tijuana, They Will Invade US

    Caravan migrants are telling reporters that as their numbers reach 20,000, they plan to invade the United States using the highway at San Ysidro, and they will challenge US control over their border. They say they have NO PLANS to apply for asylum and will knowingly and willfully break US law in order to enter the country, whether we like it or not. There could be a major fly in the ointment. The new president of Mexico takes over very soon and he seems to want to have an improved relationship with the United States. Andrés Manuel López Obrador has...

    German Chancellor Angela Merkel has said that European Union (EU) member states must be prepared to transfer powers over to Brussels at a debate on the ‘tensions’ between globalisation and national sovereignty. “Nation states must today be prepared to give up their sovereignty,” Merkel said, speaking at an event organised by the Konrad Adenauer Foundation in Berlin on Wednesday. “In an orderly fashion of course,” Merkel said, explaining that — while Germany had given up some of its sovereignty in order to join the EU, national parliaments were in charge of deciding whether to sign up to international treaties.

    Hundreds of residents of the Mexican border city of Tijuana protest the thousands of Central American migrants who have arrived in the hope of starting a new life in the US. On Sunday, local residents waved Mexican flags, sang the national anthem and chanted 'Out! Out!' At one point, police formed a barrier between the Central American migrants and protesting locals. Protesters have called the migrant caravan an 'invasion' and are accusing the migrants of being messy, ungrateful and a danger to Tijuana. They are concerned Mexican taxes might be spent to care for the group as they wait, possibly...

    Now the Dems are on the defensive as Trump sends the military and a clear message that he will defend America’s sovereignty in the face of what he calls an “invasion.” The change is striking. Four months ago, critics on the left wouldn’t shut up about the border and some, like Mayor Bill de Blasio, made grandstanding trips to Texas detention facilities and held press conferences to denounce Trump in the harshest possible language. Now, despite the president’s tough talk and use of the military, leftist pols hardly make a peep, fearful that defending the caravan could be political suicide....

    - snip - Drawing a comparison between anti-Semitic slurs from Tsarist Russia or Henry Ford's fervid ruminations, and today's analysis of the postwar world order is facile in the extreme. At the recent Jewish Leadership Conference, held in New York the day after the killings in Pittsburgh, Yoram Hazony, an Israeli philosopher whose recent book The Virtue of Nationalism defends vigorously the traditional nation-state, responded in an interview to the argument that criticism of "globalism" is anti-Semitic. "The word 'globalism,'" explained Hazony, "has been used for the last generation both in academic settings to describe a technical worldview that has...

    International officials with the United Nations (UN) Refugee Agency say President Trump must allow a caravan of Central Americans into the United States to seek asylum. As Breitbart News has chronicled, migrants with an at least 7,000-strong caravan have repeatedly admitted that they are traveling to the U.S. to seek jobs, re-enter the U.S. as previously deported illegal aliens, and flee crime. One previously deported illegal alien with the caravan even admitted that he was convicted of attempted murder in the U.S. None of these cases are eligible asylum claims. The UN Refugee Agency, though, is commanding Trump to accept...

    The United States has been under an illegal immigrant invasion for decades because our borders have been porous. Elected officials made deals with lobbyists who guaranteed cheap labor, amongst other deals. Now, there is a caravan of over 7,000 people moving through Mexico from Honduras, but this is not about jobs as they claim. They intend to arrive around midterm election day to create a spectacle, and the Democratic Party is complacent. The Left wants a humanitarian crisis that will make President Trump look bad by sending the National Guard to the border, but they are forgetting something. Immigration was...

    It's not my favorite solution. It's certainly not a permanent one. But if thousands of migrants are going to make a point of showing our border impotence, we need an immediate answer. The central problem, which many don't realize, is that while our border is a leaky sieve, caravans like this aren't trying to just break in, they're perfectly happy applying for asylum at the border and then being taken into custody, before being released due to overcrowding and then told to report for their hearing. It saves them plenty of days of rough travel. We could stop accepting asylum...

    FULL TITLE: Exclusive — House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy: ‘No Longer Just Republicans Versus Democrats; It’s America Versus Socialism’ As the Democrats drift further leftward into openly embracing socialism, House Majority Leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) warns the political battle ahead of the midterm elections just two weeks from now is no longer a traditional partisan battle. Instead it is one where the country must confront and reject extreme ideas from the left. “The debate today is different than the one we had before with Republicans versus Democrats on the size of what government can be,” McCarthy said in an...

    Chinese power is expanding. Chinese claims to the South China Sea are not going to go away in a hurry. At the moment, American power represents a restraint on Chinese expansion. It is not clear how that will hold into the future. In his landmark foreign policy speech in April 2016 candidate Trump said, “……our resources are totally over extended. ……. the U.S. must be prepared to let these (European and Asian) countries defend themselves. We have no choice.” My unique country, Australia, a predominantly European nation on the edge of Asia, does have very deep emotional, cultural and historical...

    Donald Trump was serious when he campaigned on stricter enforcement of immigration laws. With “zero-tolerance” for illegal border crossers, a travel moratorium from certain countries and stricter limits on the number of legal immigrants, the president has kept his promise (short of building the wall) to reduce the number of newcomers to the United States. Even people who disagree with Trump’s approach on immigration — or think they disagree — should support him. Because it’s not about what might be the best immigration policy but rather who gets to make it. The president, in his crude way, is simply standing...
