    Center for Immigration Studies ^ | 15 September 2015 | Andrew R. Arthur
    A column in the Wall Street Journal this week underscored how important immigration enforcement is as an issue in the most critical races for the House of Representatives....Uncommitted voters reacted strongly against Democrats' calls to abolish Immigration and Customs Enforcement [ICE], and strongly in favor of GOP promises to defund "sanctuary" cities and states, which refuse to follow immigration law.
  • The one question Republicans need to ask voters to keep Congress

    “Are you better off now than you were two years ago?” Republicans should ask voters this key question during the 2018 midterms. It would shift the debate from the childish and shrill Resistance to the mature and optimistic topic of results. By nearly any measure, Washington’s unified Republican government has improved things for every American since the last election. The economy is roaring, thanks to Republican public policy. Obama’s “You didn’t build that,” anti-business hectoring has been replaced by gratitude. For each new federal regulation, 22 asphyxiating rules have been scrapped. And $1.5 trillion in GOP tax cuts have supplied...

    (snips) --- • In a conversation with Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) on Facebook Live on Wednesday, Media Research Center (MRC) President Brent Bozell declared the recent censorship of conservatives "the greatest worldwide censorship" of free speech in "the history of man." "In recent months, there has been a debate that has now exploded on the national scene dealing with the subject of censorship and the power of a handful of tech companies," Bozell said. "When you consider that Twitter and Facebook have over a billion of an audience – NBC News has four million, Twitter and Facebook have a billion...

    It started with a leaked Google memo, then a Google denial, and now a horrific video demonstrating the arrogance and abuse of power by the Google upper echelon. THE MEMO A shocking memo obtained from a Google insider by Tucker Carlson appears to show they influenced the 2016 election. They steered Hispanic voters to Hillary Clinton. While everyone is told to worry about Russia interference, the world’s most powerful company is attempting to steal our election. It is very disturbing. They can steal the election and no one would know it. GOOGLE DENIED IT Google denied it but they took...

    JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon said he shouldn't have bragged about being able to beat Donald Trump, adding that his comments show he probably shouldn't run for president. "I shouldn't have said it," Dimon told ABC's Rebecca Jarvis Wednesday in an exclusive interview after making the comments during a panel with her in New York. Dimon was asked if he thought he could beat Trump in an election during an event to announce a new "Advancing Cities" initiative.

    A leaked email chain has revealed that senior executives at Google attempted to rig the 2016 US presidential election for Hillary Clinton. In the emails, a Google executive describes efforts to pay for free rides for a certain sect of the population to the polls–a get-out-the-vote for Hispanic voters operation–and how these efforts were because she thought it would help Hillary Clinton win the general election in 2016, according to Breitbart.

    Exit poll projects center-left party will win Swedish election, far-right party with white supremacist roots coming in second. STOCKHOLM (AP) — An exit poll indicated that Sweden's first general election since the Scandinavian country accepted a significant number of asylum-seekers was likely to have the center-left party governing now as its winner, but an anti-immigrant party with white supremacist roots placing second in balloting Sunday. Public broadcaster SVT said immediately after polls closed that its exit poll indicated the ruling Social Democrats would remain Sweden's largest party, but making its worst-ever showing with 26.2 percent of the vote. The exit...

    The battle liberals have secretly hoped for is finally enjoined. Their “secret weapon” now deployed, they are convinced that the long-promised blue wave is now an inevitability. Ironically, similar to election night in 2016, when they sat befuddled at losses in state after state that they had assumed were theirs for the keeping, a game now unfolds that I believe leads to a second late election night loss in a row. So how will that happen? Easy: the lodestars! As I sat in the green room at Fox News on Friday waiting for my hit on Outnumbered Overtime with Harris...

    If ever a politician needed to go away it was Barack Obama. Yet, somehow I knew he wasn’t going anywhere. They used to call Ronald Reagan the “teflon” President, because supposedly nothing ever “stuck” to him. So maybe we should call Barack Obama the eel, because he’s so slippery. He was always more dangerous to American than Hillary Clinton because he’s actually likeable to a suprisingly large segment of the population. So now he’s back, as expected, telling lie after lie about how our supercharged economy is somehow thanks to him. The audience didn’t quite buy it. Here’s their reaction...

    PHOENIX — The 2018 Arizona gubernatorial race is staged to be a tight one. A new poll released Wednesday by Public Policy Polling shows Democratic candidate behind Republican incumbent Doug Ducey by just one point. In an August survey, 44 percent of Arizona voters chose Ducey, while 43 percent chose Garcia. Only 13 percent of Arizona voters were undecided between the two candidates, according to Public Policy Polling. The polling research included that 45 percent of voters surveyed disapprove of Ducey's job as governor. It also pointed out that Garcia leads Ducey among Independents (46 percent to 36 percent), women...

    Federal prosecutors have issued sweeping subpoenas demanding that millions of North Carolina voter records be turned over to immigration authorities by Sept. 25. With just two months to go before the midterms, the subpoenas threatened to sow chaos in the state’s election machinery, while renewing the Trump administration’s repeatedly discredited claims of widespread voting by illegal immigrants. The unsealed grand jury subpoenas were sent to the state elections board and to 44 county elections boards in eastern North Carolina. Their existence became widely known after Marc E. Elias, a voting rights lawyer aligned with the Democratic Party, mentioned them on...

    WASHINGTON - The two top-ranking Democrats indicated Tuesday that their confidence is growing that their party will retake the House majority in November's midterm elections, as a new Washington Post-ABC News poll showed voters turning sharply against congressional Republicans. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., sent a letter telling colleagues on Tuesday that Democrats "must Be Ready for the prospect that we will be in the Majority in January." Pelosi said that the top Democrats on House committees will write bills reflecting the party's "For the People" campaign agenda, with an emphasis on reining in health care coats, raising wages...

    The Hill ^ | 5aug18 | Reid Wilson
    Signs of a blue wave are increasing as lawmakers return to Washington for their final few weeks of legislative work before the crucial midterm elections. Democrats have led Republicans by at least 11 points in five of the last six polls asking voters whether they favor a generic Democrat or a generic Republican in the race for Congress. That margin only slightly trails the Democratic advantage in 2006, when the party won back control of Congress. Democrats also enjoy a fundraising advantage, one that is perhaps bolstered by polls showing their party is more enthusiastic about turning out to vote...

    Dozens of people, possibly more, have received an email from Google informing them that the internet giant responded to a court-ordered FBI demand for the release of their data, according to Motherboard, citing several people who claim to have received the email. The notice did not say whether Google had already released the requested information to the FBI. The notice appears to be related to the case of Colton Grubbs, who has been indicted for selling a $40 remote access tool (RAT) which claims to be able to hack and control computers remotely. Last year Grubbs pleaded guilty to...

    With their supporters energized in opposition to Donald Trump, Democrats hold their widest advantage in midterm election vote preferences since 2006, when they seized control of both houses of Congress. Rebounding from a tighter contest in the spring, Democratic House candidates now lead their Republican opponents nationally by 52-38 percent among registered voters in a new ABC News/Washington Post poll – a lead that holds up across a range of likely voter models.

    There is a very specific reason why U.S. print and broadcast media focused intensely on pushing their anti-Trump funeralpalozza narrative. As we saw in the 2016 election cycle, the goal of the DC proletariat is to create a false sense of the electoral landscape. What they don’t want people to see are reports like this. Last Thursday night’s President Trump rally drew the Ford Center’s largest crowd ever, according to manager VenuWorks. The turnout: 11,500 people, with another 2,000 unable to get in.

    Shortly after Joe Biden boarded a recent flight from Washington to New York, a string of passengers began stopping at his seat in coach to deliver some version of the same message: Run, Joe, run. "We're with you," one said, according to a Democratic strategist who happened to be on the plane and witnessed the scene. "You've got to do this," said another. Biden himself is more conflicted — but he is listening keenly to the supporters pushing him to run for the White House in 2020. Biden is convinced he can beat President Donald Trump, friends and advisers say,...
