  • Obama Dishonors Memorial Day At Hiroshima

    05/28/2016 3:06:17 PM PDT · by Biggirl · 49 replies ^ | May 28, 2016 | Tom Tancredo
    Does anyone think it an accident that President Obama chose Memorial Day weekend to give his high-sounding moral equivalence speech in Hiroshima calling for a ďmoral revolutionĒ? What Obama proposed in his speech in Japan is moral disarmament, and the consequences of that moral capitulation will be horrific if the world follows his advice.

    We knew back in September that the Colorado Republican Party had made a major error when it dumped the presidential preference poll in the midst of maybe the wildest Republican race ever. (SNIP) He thinks of the 11 states in play that Rubio has a shot at two Ė Minnesota and Virginia. But his best shot, he writes, would have been Colorado, with its mix of voters that run to the highly educated and to the highly religious, which would have been a good mix for Rubio, who is being supported by Cory Gardner and most of the GOP establishment.

    In a column for the Daily Caller, Tancredo, who ran twice for his party's presidential nomination in an effort to inject the illegal immigration issue into the larger debate, is slamming Perry for his soft policies on illegal immigration in Texas -- and what Tancredo calls his "Muslim blind spot." "What is not yet as widely known about Perry is that he extends his taxpayer-funded compassion not only to illegal aliens but also to Muslim groups seeking to whitewash the violent history of that religion," Tancredo writes. "Perry endorsed and facilitated the adoption in Texas public schools of a pro-Muslim...

    On Saturday Texas Gov. Rick Perry is expected to announce whether or not he will run for president. Many now believe he will. Perry is eager to separate himself from his predecessor in the Texas governorís mansion, George W. Bush ó who is unpopular with both tea party Republicans and the American electorate as a whole. But one area where Perryís positions are virtually identical to Bush is immigration. When I ran for president in 2008, I tried to pressure the Republican candidates to take a hard line against illegal immigration. For this, Perry called me a racist. When he...

    Iím the first to acknowledge that among the estimated 11 million illegal immigrants in the United States, many are hardworking, law-abiding members of our society. A very small percentage were brought here by their parents, and did not choose to break the law themselves. The media endlessly reports on these hard cases to implicitly ó and sometimes explicitly ó promote bad laws, like the DREAM Act and in-state tuition for illegal immigrants. The latest of these hard cases involves the former Washington Post reporter Jose Antonio Vargas, who revealed he was an illegal immigrant in a new New York Times...

    Like most people, I enjoy a good joke. But Donald Trump for president? With apologies to Karl Rove, it's not really that funny. The Trump candidacy is not a joke; it's a scam. But its success with millions of voters shows us we are a nation very susceptible to scams if they are done on a grand enough scale...... In Donald Trump we have a liberal billionaire with a long record of supporting Democratic candidates who is willing to spend unlimited amounts of money to reinvent himself as a populist conservative. Ordinarily, that would be an impossible, even laughable undertaking....
