  • 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 “moral revolution”? 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.

    “Mexico First” has been the open, avowed policy of the government of Mexico for a generation, and Mexico expects its former residents to be loyal to Mexico for the next 200 years. Yet, when Donald Trump calls for an “America First” foreign policy, as he did in a speech this past week, he is denounced by pundits and the national security establishment for “nativism” and “demagoguery,” as if that policy is a novel and radical idea. Well, not in Mexico. I know that for a fact because I had it explained to me in Mexico City back in 2001 by...

    ...Avoiding a repeat of past treachery on immigration means electing a president who will keep his promises, not "work out a deal" that perpetuates our open borders fiasco. So, it is fair to ask, can we trust Ted Cruz to challenge the Republican establishment's love affair with massive immigration?Some candidates make loud, colorful promises to secure our borders. Ted Cruz has a record of actually fighting for secure borders. In 2013, Cruz fought in the Senate trenches to defeat the establishment's grandiose "Gang of Eight" amnesty bill. He offered strong amendments that exposed the true character of the amnesty bill.The...

    House Speaker Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) this past week again showed he will punish conservative House members for not supporting deals he strikes with President Obama and Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA). This does not bode well for the package of immigration bills to be debated on the House floor sometime after the July Fourth recess. House Republicans have been writing and “marking up” more than a dozen immigration bills over the past year, and Republican leaders have been promising a “package of little bills” as an alternative to the “comprehensive” bills favored by the amnesty lobby.

    A fight within Colorado’s Republican Party that involves accusations of an extramarital affair and blackmail could have a ripple effect on future candidates and elections. The infighting involves big name Republicans in Colorado and it could have implications for not only statewide elections, but national races. Colorado is a swing state that will not only be key in deciding the presidency next year, but control of the U.S. Senate. “It’s an ugly, sticky, yucky situation,” said former Republican U.S. Rep. Tom Tancredo. Tancredo has been a magnet for controversy. He, Attorney General Cynthia Coffman and Pueblo GOP Chair Becky Mizel...

The 2013 legislative session, often described as the most liberal in state history, may have also been the most partisan. Democrats pushed through major legislation with no Republican votes on a half-dozen fronts, including election reform, gun control, education funding, and the rural renewable-energy standard. “It would be lovely if he behaved in a bipartisan manner, but that’s not what we saw last year,” said state Sen.

So, we made a few strategic decisions to try to move ourselves back into play, forcing us to be on our game, a little more focused.” A June Quinnipiac University poll showed the first-term Democrat running neck and neck with Republican Tom Tancredo, a failed 2010 gubernatorial candidate...

The Republican, a former Colorado congressman whose crusade against illegal immigration evolved into a gadfly campaign for the Republican presidential nomination in 2008 wants you to know he's serious this time: He wants another shot at Gov. John Hickenlooper. Four years ago, Tancredo mounted a last-minute campaign on the Constitution Party ticket, as Colorado's Republican gubernatorial nominee melted down. In two months, Tancredo scored 36 percent of the vote, three times more than Republican Dan Maes, but 15 points behind Hickenlooper. This time, Tancredo says, there's...

    Last year, the Obama administration tried to block the execution of Humberto Leal Garcia. In 1994, at age 21, Leal kidnapped, murdered and raped a 16-year-old girl named Adria Sauceda. There was never much doubt as to Leal’s guilt, and the administration did not oppose the execution on the grounds that Leal was innocent or even that he did not receive a fair trial. Rather, administration officials were worried that executing him would “seriously jeopardize” relations with Mexico. According to the administration’s brief, since Leal was a “Mexican national,” he should have been offered assistance from the Mexican consulate when...

    f Newt Gingrich is a "policy wonk" as his friends proclaim, he is a very lazy one. He should have read the Kriebel Foundation's "Red Card Solution" before endorsing it as a non-amnesty solution to our immigration conundrum. The so-called Red Card Solution purports to create a new guest-worker program that solves all of our immigration problems. It strengthens border security, helps employers fill low-skilled jobs, bars criminals from participation and does all of this by "empowering the private sector" without use of taxpayer dollars. Maybe in the fine print it also wipes out the national debt. The problem is,...

    Herman Cain would make a great president of the United States. He is my candidate, and he has a good chance of becoming the candidate of the Republican Party. Cain's only weakness is political inexperience, and that leads to mistakes in his campaign, but it is not a disqualification for the office. In fact, in the eyes of most voters, it is more a blessing than a curse. Based on my 30 years in public life, I see three qualifications for public office and for the office of president.

    Yes, I strongly support Arizona-style laws to deal with a problem created by the federal government's lack of enforcement of our nation's immigration laws. Colorado has an estimated 200,000 or more illegal immigrants who drain over $1.6 billion in taxpayer dollars annually, according to a recent study by the Federation for American Immigration Reform. Colorado spends over $50 million alone on prosecuting and incarcerating criminal immigrants. Beginning in 2004, Arizona enacted a series of referenda and state laws on this matter, and SB 1070 is only the most recent. The most controversial part of the new Arizona law has been...

Tancredo's campaign spent about $60,000 on the ads, which are airing more than a dozen times a day on some rural radio stations and some television stations. His ad against GOP gubernatorial candidate Dan Maes includes a litany of accusations made over the past few months. Titled, "Dan Maes: Bankrupt," it cites Maes' bankruptcy filing at age 29, one...

    In primaries this year, Republican voters in Alaska, Colorado, Delaware, Florida, Kentucky, Nevada, and Utah, have rejected—en masse—the candidates preferred by the National Republican Senatorial Committee, which Rove is said to informally advise. The Conservative Party candidate Tom Tancredo—a known enemy of Rove—is trouncing the GOP-backed candidate in the race for governor of Colorado.

His top expense is advertising, which totals $113,338. The amount of Dan Maes' expenses, which include mileage, travel, phone, food and drinks...

    For any who have been following the Colorado gubernatorial race it as been an ugly, disastrous, GOP bungle in the middle of what should only be a Republican year. The hand-picked GOP establishment candidate was former congressman Scott McInnis. I actually like the guy, but he tended to be a flip-flopper and the TEA party types didn’t trust him. He was opposed by no-name businessman Dan Maes who came out of nowhere riding the anti-establishment mood to emerge from the state convention with strong backing and a place on the primary ballot. Within just a few days the press launched...

    Tancredo celebrates rising poll numbers, mocks GOP Digg Tweet By John Tomasic 10/18/10 12:35 PM Candidate for governor Tom Tancredo is buoyed by the results of a Rasmussen poll taken Friday. The poll has Tancredo, a late-entry third-party candidate in the Colorado race, pulling within four points of Democratic frontrunner John Hickenlooper and swamping GOP Tea Party candidate Dan Maes. “They say I’m going to sink the Republican Party if I draw too many votes. That’s funny. There is someone in this race sinking the Republican Party but it’s not me. It’s the guy running as a Republican who’s polling...

    He's not there yet, but it appears that former Congressman Tom Tancredo has made a race in Colorado. The Republican is running as an independent in the three-way race for Governor of that state. Despite the fact that Tancredo started around 10% in the polls, a weak Republican candidate has allowed him to surge into a solid second place. The race appears to be volatile, which may help Tancredo win over independent and disaffected voters. In this Republican wave year, he may be able to win over those who like his critical view of illegal immigration and enforcement. With two...

    Tom Tancredo has moved within 4 percentage points of John Hickenlooper in the governor’s race, moving the race to “toss up,” according to the latest poll from Rasmussen Reports. Tancredo, who left the Republican Party to run on the American Constitution Party ticket, has 38 percent of the vote to Hickenlooper’s 42 percent. Support for Republican Dan Maes slipped again, and he now stands at 12 percent, Rasmussen reported. Ever since former GOP Congressman Scott McInnis’ candidacy imploded, Hickenlooper, the Democratic nominee and Denver mayor, has been in the lead in the governor’s race. However, he has generally remained in...
