It’s Trump or the Zombie Apocalypse in 2020

Written by Jonathon Clay de Hale 

I was #nevertrump through the primaries and the general election because Trump was an obnoxious boor. I was dismayed by his ad hominem attacks on other candidates, his lack of verbal discipline, and his undeveloped approach to political policy.

The only thing I admired about him was that he didn’t give a rip about refined talking points or toeing the line. During the first Republican debate he said, “I don’t frankly have time for total political correctness.… Continue Reading

Government Shutdown: Money, Money Everywhere, But Not a Drop for a Wall

Written by Larry Elder

This is not our first partial government shutdown. Somehow, someway, from 1976 through 2017, the nation has survived 18 shutdowns, the longest lasting 21 days. In this case, President Donald Trump insists that the next budget deal contain $5 billion to construct a wall on part of our southern border with Mexico.

Trump, say the Democrats, is “unwilling to compromise.” But when he asks for only $5 billion for a project with a U.S.… Continue Reading

Why Christians Should Support Building a Wall – Part II

Written by Jonathan Clay de Hale

In just the week since Part I of this two-part series was published, we’ve learned from a new study that the number of foreigners illegally living in the United States is twice as high as the conventionally accepted level of 11.3 million (and could be as high as 29.1 million, as suggested earlier); that Democrats intend to pressure President Donald Trump to raise the refugee resettlement number to 110,000 refugees a year (five times the number of foreign refugees taken in 2018); and that the Border Patrol found nearly 200 illegal aliens from Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador wandering in the Arizona desert—the third such finding in the last month.… Continue Reading

How to Fundamentally Transform a Country

Written by Daniel Horowitz

All things in life, even good things, have a limit to their utility and a point at which they become liabilities. Think of tasty spices in a dish or other ingredients in a melting pot. Quantities count, particularly over a specific period of time. Immigration is no different.

Recent Census data released from the 2017 American Community Survey (ACS) shows that immigration has grown to shocking, wholly unprecedented levels. Is it too much to ask that we engage in a mature policy discussion after five decades of record immigration with no end in sight?… Continue Reading

25 No-Brainer Immigration Plans to Make America Safer — and Win the Election

Written by Daniel Horowitz

Republicans are bleeding their traditional suburban voters at a quick pace. They are without a narrative and nearly out of time to make a difference for this election. When they return from summer recess, they have one final opportunity to either make a big play on the top issue on voter’s minds. Or they could simply monkey it up by running out the clock while they are losing.

According to recent polls, immigration is the top concern of voters.… Continue Reading

Why Do Democrats Support Lawlessness?

Written by Walker Wildmon

In recent years we’ve seen Democrat-run states and cities move to protect illegal immigrants from federal immigration officials. Yes, you read that correctly.  It is a classic state law versus federal law conundrum costing the lives and quality of life of legal citizens.

California has declared itself a “sanctuary state” meaning that you can cross the American border illegally and be protected from consequences in their state. New York and other states have passed similar measures.… Continue Reading

The Theory of Political Relative Relativity

Written by Michelle Malkin

It’s quite simple: Some political relatives are more equal than others.

Agenda-driven journalists love to exploit familial dysfunction when a prominent politician is conservative and his or her kinfolk espouse liberal views. When a vengeful offspring, sibling, cousin or distant relation wants to wreak havoc, instant fame and adoration are just a tweet or call away. The media schadenfreude over such bloody bloodline battles is thicker than California wildfire smoke.

By contrast, relatives who openly challenge powerful Democrats are dismissed as gadflies and publicity hounds.… Continue Reading

Why Everyone Believes in Secure Borders

Written by Dr. Frank Turek

If you say you’re for open borders, you’re not.  Not completely.

Do you have locks on your doors?  How about on your car?  Got a fence so your kids can play safely?  Do you have passwords on your computers?  How about your bank accounts? Do you protect your credit card numbers?  Your social security number?  How about your medical records?  Do you think curbs, guardrails, and traffic lines are a good idea, or should people be able to drive anywhere and any way they want? … Continue Reading

The Big Lie: Leftists Care about Children

Written by Tom Trinko

Leftists have a long history of exploiting children to advance the left’s political agenda.  The most recent case is the left’s screeching about the fact that when illegals are arrested for trying to sneak into the country, their children are separated from them.

We know that leftists don’t really care about this because it happened under Barack Obama, and they said nothing.  It even happened under George W. Bush, and they didn’t complain about it then, either, even though they hated Bush.… Continue Reading

The Appalling Silence of Congress On Our Border Crisis

Written by Daniel Horowitz

With the recent surge at the border, our national security is in grave danger. Because of judicial amnesty and catch-and-release, there is nothing to deter gang members, Middle Eastern terrorists, and drug runners from crossing the border, asserting a credible fear of persecution, and then disappearing indefinitely into our population as they “await” an asylum hearing. This was an egregious act of stolen sovereignty by the Obama administration, and despite the rhetoric to the contrary, Trump’s DHS has not fundamentally changed course.… Continue Reading
