  • How Other Nations Stop US From Deporting Criminal Illegal Immigrants

    Susanna Ruth Makinson can blame a lot of things for why her then-husband was shot dead eight years ago while patrolling the streets of Fort Myers, Florida, the first time since 1930 a police officer had been gunned down in the city. That’s because, in a distant way out of her—and his—control, Andrew Widman’s death felt preventable; his killer, Abel Arango, was an illegal immigrant and convicted felon who was released from detention because his native Cuba wouldn’t take him back. But though Makinson wishes the government would do more to fix this little-known problem in the immigration system, to...

    After Brexit, Sarah Palin Just Pissed Off Liberals In A HUGE WAY! The United Nations’ main purpose these days is working on climate change, global warming and taxing the United States. When they can make it rain in Ethiopia, then perhaps we can take them seriously. They have become a useless organization to which they were originally chartered for, and America needs to stop being its purse! Former VP candidate and Alaska Governor Sarah Palin is correct! The UN is made up of dictators, despots, murderers and rapists and we are paying them. Dump the fools in the middle of...

    "Donald Trump's Secret Service detail and private bodyguards had the last laugh on Friday as hundreds of protesters swarmed at the front of a San Francisco airport hotel trying to block him from coming in for a speech at the state Republican Party's annual convention. Instead of partnering with uniformed police in riot shields trying to push the hordes back, they did a law-enforcement head fake – leading the billionaire across a grass highway median and in a back-door loading dock at the Hyatt Regency hotel in the suburb of Burlingame. The move left Trump feeling like he was crossing...

    U.S. President Barack Obama has penned an opinion column in Britain’s Daily Telegraph newspaper outlining why he believes Britain should remain in the European Union (EU). The core of his arguments are: that Britain’s voice would be lost without Brussels bureaucrats; his failing deal with the largest state sponsor of terrorism; the pro-mass-privatisation TTIP deal; and the fact that dead American servicemen are buried in Europe.

    Lobbyists in Washington say they are being flooded with questions and concerns from foreign governments about the rise of Donald Trump. Officials around the globe are closely following the U.S. presidential race, to the point where some have asked their American lobbyists to explain, in great detail, what a contested GOP convention would look like. The questions about Trump are “almost all-consuming,” said Richard Mintz, the managing director of Washington-based firm The Harbour Group, whose client list includes the governments of Georgia and the United Arab Emirates. After a recent trip to London, Abu Dhabi and Beijing, “it’s fair to...

    Since I consider myself a traditional conservative, many friends of mine, on both the Right and the Left, are puzzled by my unwavering support for Donald Trump. Their bewilderment is understandable. Trump is often rude and obnoxious. His demeanor can be arrogant and dismissive. At times, he comports himself as reckless and willing to lash out prematurely, prior to fully understanding all of the facts at hand. To put it simply, he is a “wrecking ball.” Furthermore, Trump isn’t even a pure conservative in terms of policy; he is a populist. His statements over the years regarding such areas as...

Breitbart News executive chairman and host Stephen K. Bannon compared the issues at stake in Britain’s upcoming vote on exiting from the European Union with the 2016 U.S. presidential election, and asked Sessions if the latter could be seen as “essentially an up-or-down vote on national sovereignty of the United States of America.” Sessions said the issue of sovereignty was definitely at stake in these elections. “If you don’t secure the border, as Trump...

    It is widely accepted that American public schools are controlled by liberals. It seems like every day, we see new examples of American schoolchildren being indoctrinated with left-wing ideas. This latest example was brought to our attention by a concerned parent. Kindergarten students from PS75, a public school in New York City, recently took part in a class project in which the children were made to create an American flag with the flags of other 22 other nations superimposed over the stripes. Below the flag read the words "We pledge allegiance to an International Flag..."

    On economic and social issues, EU member states have given up their national sovereignty because the EU decision-making has been transferred into the hands of a supranational authority. The European Union started with six Western European countries after World War II as the European Coal and Steel Community in 1952 (Belgium, France, Italy, Germany, Luxembourg, and the Netherlands). By 1973 the United Kingdom, Denmark, and Ireland joined what had become known as the European Community. Greece became a member in 1981, Spain and Portugal in 1986, Austria, Finland, and Sweden in 1995, eight former communist countries in 2004 (the Czech...

    “I’M A negotiator like you folks; we’re negotiators,” Donald Trump said to the Republican Jewish Coalition on Thursday. “Is there anybody that doesn’t renegotiate deals in this room? Perhaps more than any room I’ve ever spoken to.” At another point, he remarked, “I know why you’re not going to support me — because I don’t want your money.” These comments aren’t as objectionable as Mr. Trump’s talk of registering Muslim Americans, a proposal he has toyed with in the weeks since the Paris terrorist attacks, or when he mocked the physical disability of a New York Times reporter who dared...

That trade pact can no longer be amended. The up-or-down votes in the House and Senate will take place as early as January 2016. So what’s in the TPP?

    When it comes to the topic of immigration, you may not be surprised to find that a new poll discovered that Republicans trust Donald Trump more than any other candidate on the issue. A new YouGov poll found that Trump was far and away the most trusted candidate concerning immigration among the still large field of GOP candidates for president. About half of of those polled, 49 percent, said that Trump had the right ideas on immigration. These findings are significant considering months of attacks by the mainstream media trying to tear Trump down over the immigration issue. His ratings...

Nearly 800,000 people decided to become American citizens in the 12 months that ended Sept. 30, 2013 — and more than a third of them came from Asia. Asians comprised the biggest group of new Americans by region, according to recent data from the Department of Homeland Security, edging out those from North America, in which DHS includes those from Central America and the Caribbean. Mexicans remain the single largest group of foreigners who were naturalized as citizens. But by...

    A large part of Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump’s stance on immigration involves building a wall along the southern U.S. border — a wall the real estate tycoon insists will be paid for by Mexico. But not so fast says GOP rival Jeb Bush. The former governor of Florida said over the weekend Trump is promising to build “a wall that can’t be built,” the Washington Examiner reported. It’s a determination Bush said he made after talking to mayors and law enforcement on the Texas-Mexico border, who he said told him a wall can’t be built because of the rugged...

    Senator Ted Cruz has an excellent essay in the Harvard Law Review Forum entitled Limits on the Treaty Power. Here is a taste: The Necessary and Proper Clause does not give Congress power to implement treaties in a way that contravenes the structural limitations on the federal government’s powers …. The President should not be able to make any treaty — and Congress should not be able to implement any treaty — in a way that displaces the sovereignty reserved to the states or to the people. Cruz thus argues that Justice Holmes’s opinion in Missouri v. Holland must be...

    Limits on the Treaty Power U.S. Senator Ted Cruz During Justice Sotomayor's Senate Judiciary Committee confirmation hearing, she rightly stated that "American law does not permit the use of foreign law or international law to interpret the Constitution."1 But she also correctly recognized that some U.S. laws rely upon certain international law sources.2 For instance, the Alien Tort Statute3 "allows federal courts to recognize certain causes of action based on sufficiently definite norms of international law."4 Treaties are probably the most prevalent mechanism by which domestic law adopts international law. A treaty is "primarily a compact between independent nations."5 Article...

  • Mexico Orders Release of Spies Convicted in U.S. Court

    The Obama administration has given Mexico enough input and authority over U.S. matters that its lawmakers felt emboldened enough to order the release of four communist spies serving lengthy sentences in federal prison. The Mexican Cámara de Diputados, which is similar to the U.S. House of Representatives, actually passed a measure this week commanding American officials to free the foreign intelligence officers, agents of Cuba’s communist government convicted in 2001 for espionage, conspiracy to commit murder and acting as an agent of a foreign government. One of the spies is already out on probation after serving a 13-year sentence but...
  • EU institutions at war on ‘illegal’ finance tax

    EU Observer ^ | 10.09.13 @ 16:49 (Sep. 10) | Valentina Pop
    A financial transactions tax (FTT) for 11 EU countries would be illegal as it affects the tax sovereignty of others, according to an opinion by the legal service of the EU Council in Brussels. The European Commission says the tax is in line with EU law, however. In the leaked document, seen by Reuters and Financial Times, the lawyers serving EU member states say the proposed financial transactions tax “exceeds member states’ jurisdiction for taxation under the norms of international customary law as they are understood by the Union.” The 14-page legal opinion concludes that the proposal is “not compatible”...

    Many have been alarmed by the rapid escalation in Syria this week after years of horrific violence. With the reported use of chemical weapons by the Assad regime, U.S. officials say America could begin missile strikes within the week. But why now? What exactly do we hope to achieve? Glenn Beck tackled the issue on his television program Wednesday evening, arguing that the focus of the administration may not be on the war itself — but on the subsequent layout of the world. “This administration knows that we are on the brink of World War III. The global economy is...
  • Comprehending the Decretive Will of God

    Ligonier ^ | 8/16/13
    God’s decretive will is sometimes described as the sovereign, efficacious will by which God brings to pass whatever He pleases by His divine decree. An example of this may be seen in God’s work of creation. When God said, “Let there be light” (Gen. 1:3), He issued a divine imperative. He exercised His sovereign, efficacious will. When He did so, it was impossible for the light not to appear. It appeared by the sheer necessity of consequence.The decretive will can have no other effect, no other consequence than what God sovereignly commands. He did not request the light to shine. Neither...

    American reporters appropriately had a 'wait, what? moment' on Wednesday during a Senate Judiciary committee meeting. Senator Diane Feinstein, the chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee, was defending the National Security Agency's top secret spying when she brought out a prop identifying North America — the United States, Canada and Mexico — as the "Homeland". "You may also be surprised to learn that our homeland now includes both Mexico and Canada, two areas that we understood to be autonomous nations that are not part of the United States," noted the Atlantic Wire, the publication which first reported the unorthodox map.

    When I raised my own objections to the treaty to Sen. Hagen of North Carolina, I specifically questioned why we would want to accede our sovereignty to a foreign entity. She told me that we would not have to cede any rights to the U.N. that were counter to our own laws. Were that true, why sign the treaty, I asked? If it is ineffectual, at best it is a waste of time. And if it is not ineffectual, why were we relinquishing our national authority? How was that in our best interest? She did not respond.
  • Habakkuk’s Oracle [God Sees His People Suffering; He Will Respond to Wickedness]

    Of all the prophets of the old covenant, perhaps none today suffers from more neglect in relation to his importance for the New Testament than Habakkuk... Habakkuk served God, noting clearly when His law was broken and His justice perverted... Habakkuk complains about Jehoiakim’s evil and the complicity of Judah’s ruling class in today’s passage. His complaints are heart-wrenching, flowing from the lips of one who saw the wicked prospering and wondered if perhaps the Lord had forgotten His righteous servants... When we see the wicked prospering and God’s people suffering, we may think the Lord is too slow in...

    We already full-well know that President Obama has tried to severely restrict Americans' constitutional right to bear arms. Not only has he been pushing gun control at the national level, but he has also been working at the international level. On June 3, Obama plans to sign the U.N. Arms Trade Treaty (ATT). He aims to cede American sovereignty to the corrupt United Nations, made up of many countries openly hostile to the U.S. How would you like your Second Amendment rights to be dependent on the likes of Venezuela or Iran? YOU CAN ACT NOW TO STOP OBAMA'S ATTACK...
