    As the mainstream media and liberal talking heads slam Donald Trump as a racist for wanting to get rid of birthright citizenship, they ought to take a look in the mirror. In a speech before Congress in 1993 and uncovered by conservative website The Right Scoop, Sen. blasted the fact that illegal aliens were given “rewards” for having babies in the United States. Heck, he even used the dreaded term “illegal alien.” “If making it easy to be an illegal alien isn’t enough, how about offering a reward for being an illegal immigrant?” Reid asked. “No sane country would do...

    In every U.S. election, there are always threats by Americans that they’ll flee to Canada if the candidate they hate wins. Those threats rarely come to anything. But thanks to a 2014 intergovernmental agreement committing Canada to provide the banking information of Americans living here to the IRS, there appears to be mad rush by some Americans to renounce their U.S. citizenship, and stay here - forever. According to Global News, almost four times as many U.S. citizens as normal dumped their citizenship in March. The reason is an obscure regulation that forces Americans to fill out a Foreign Bank...
  • This Ted Cruz bill gives shocking new powers to ... Barack Obama?

    Senator Ted Cruz isn’t one to throw a bone to the Obama administration. But a new bill that he introduced would give the government enormous new powers when it comes to national security. It’s called the “Expatriate Terrorist Act” and on the surface its intentions seem good enough. It allows the United States to revoke the citizenship of anyone fighting for or aiding a terrorist group like ISIS. “If we do not pass this legislation, the consequence will be that Americans fighting alongside ISIS today may come home tomorrow with a U.S. passport, may come home to New York or...
  • Multiculturalism: American Suicide

    11/15/2013 7:04:37 PM PST · by milehighmaniac · 36 replies
    Richard Lamm on Multiculturalism We know Richard Lamm as the former Democratic Governor of Colorado from 1975-1987. In that context his thoughts are particularly poignant. In 2004 there was an immigration overpopulation conference in Washington, DC, filled to capacity by many of American's finest minds and leaders. A brilliant college professor by the name of Victor Davis Hansen talked about his latest book, Mexifornia, explaining how immigration - both legal and illegal was destroying the entire state of California. He said it would march across the country until it destroyed all vestiges of The American Dream. Moments later, former Colorado...
  • What Price U.S. Citizenship?

    HONG KONG -- We read about famous people like French film star Gerard Depardieu, who moved to Belgium to avoid a 75 percent income tax on millionaires proposed by France's Socialist government (a measure rejected last week by a French council, though French leadership has vowed to resubmit a similar proposal). Then there is Eduardo Saverin, who took the extreme step of giving up his U.S. citizenship and could see a savings of $39 million on his Facebook investment, according to the research firm Wealth-X. He says business reasons, rather than high taxes, were his primary motivation. I had read...

    The comedian Jeff Foxworthy has a great routine called "You Might Be a Redneck." He sets up a series of questions, and if you answer yes, well, you might be a... You get the idea. But during this convention season, perhaps a more penetrating question is: Are you a bad citizen? Let's be truthful, there are millions of Americans who don't care about their country at all. How can you tell? Easy. If an American does not pay attention to national events or educate himself enough to know the basics of how the USA works, then he or she is...
  • Voter Apathy Isn't a Crime

    It's a sure sign someone is losing when he demands that the rules be changed. That might explain the renewed interest in forcing people to vote against their will. Peter Orszag, President Obama's former budget director and now a vice chairman at Citigroup, recently wrote a column for Bloomberg View arguing for making voting mandatory. He's not alone. Icons of the Beltway establishment Norman Ornstein and Thomas Mann also favor the idea. As does William Galston, a former advisor to President Clinton. (Mann and Galston are scholars at the liberal Brookings Institution; Ornstein is a colleague of mine at the...

    Sovereign Man ^ | 04/25/2012 | Simon Black
    I was approached recently by a member of our Sovereign Man community who filed the paperwork to relinquish US citizenship some time ago. Long story short, after an incomprehensibly long wait, the US government finally sent him a reply: Application DENIED. Absolutely shocking. That you even have to ‘apply’ to relinquish what you never signed up for is intellectually insulting. That you cannot do so freely, and immediately, is nothing short of totalitarian. It’s still an embryonic movement, though more and more US citizens are being driven to divorce their country. Last year nearly 1,600 people gave up US citizenship,...

    Associated Press ^ | 10-20-10 | PAUL DAVENPORT and AMANDA LEE MYERS
    Lawmakers in at least 14 states are collaborating on proposed legislation to deny U.S. citizenship to children of illegal immigrants, according to lawmakers, including the sponsor of Arizona's 2010 law targeting illegal immigration. "We're taking a leadership role on things that need to be fixed in America. We can't get Congress to do it," Republican state Sen. Russell Pearce, of Mesa, said Tuesday. "It's a national work group so that we have model legislation that we know will be successful, that meets the constitutional criteria." The efforts by the state legislators come amid calls to change the U.S. Constitution's 14th...

  • Obama, McCain: U.S. citizens

    One of the more tiring duelling refrains of the presidential campaign is that: 1) John McCain was not born in the United States, and cannot, under the Constitution, serve as president, and, 2) Barack Obama says he was born in Hawaii, but cannot show a birth certificate. As tired as the line of reasoning on both fronts may be, it keeps showing up in the reader-comments on postings here in the Swamp. So we're here this morning, a little more than a week from the election of the 44th presient of the United States, to assure readers that both of...

However, the fact that the court has refused to dismiss this case and furthermore is requiring the submission of additional documention seems to be a troubling sign for the Obama camp. Radarsite has posted the first page of the full PDF transcript of this decision below and has posted a link to the complete document.

    LOS ANGELES - Lawyers for a deported Mexican woman who is eight months pregnant are seeking her return to the United States to protect the unborn baby's health. They also say under federal law the fetus is a viable human being and thus may be eligible for citizenship rights. That argument sounds like a long shot to some on both sides of the immigration debate. But in May, a U.S. District Court judge in Kansas City, Mo., approved a stay of deportation for a pregnant Mexican woman after raising, among other concerns, the question of whether her fetus could be...

    I know: Let's have dictionaries with erasable print! That way, when words are changed to suit political or ideological purposes, we can just make the corrections and move on. Wouldn't want being correct to get in our way, now would we? Note, I said "correct." Not "politically correct." A rose is a rose is a rose. Yeah, sure it is. We are careening past the day when words have accepted meanings. If we keep on at this rate, dictionary makers will be faced with three choices: either publish volumes twice the size they are now, print the books with erasable...
