LIAR! The Reason Rubio Carries Water

by Mike February 23, 2016

It is often said that liberals are guilty of “projection” – ascribing to others their own character flaws. From that, it would be reasonable to infer, with all the sound and fury of Rubio calling Cruz a liar over illegal immigration, that the source of the lies might be closer to home. A couple of […]

by Skip January 18, 2016

The recent flood of illegal migrants currently inundating Europe continues to be one of the most horrific and misunderstood events of our time.

Is the GOP telling English speakers one thing on immigration and Spanish ones something else?

by Skip January 18, 2016

In essence, are they trying to “calm” (at best, mislead at worst) their base while appealing to the new electorate that they want?  Quite disturbing this – that Nikki Haley (Gov, R-SC) said one thing about immigration in English while Mario Díaz-Balart (Congressman, R-FL) said the opposite when they gave the response to Obama’s SOTU address.

Marco Rubio – still a member of the Gang of Eight?

by Skip January 18, 2016

Boy, Marco squirms in and out of the “immigration hole” faster than the Eldest’s pet snake.  We Conservatives had problems with this former TEA Party darling since he decided that he would hook up with Senator Chuckie Schumer (D-NY) who basically took him to the cleaners w/respect illegal immigration.  A lot of us went “HUH?” […]

Ted Cruz – “Invasion”

by Skip January 5, 2016

Nice to see Ted Cruz go after the gatekeepers of the Progressive Agenda – Democrat stalwarts all – lawyers and journalists.  After all, they aren’t impacted by the open borders movement, are they? (H/T: Washington Examiner)

by Mike November 15, 2015

by Skip October 20, 2015

So Frank, whatcha gonna do?  Vote for the anointed that seems to think more highly of immigrants than native born, or this time, vote to protect your constituents? At the meeting, Paul Ryan told a predominantly Hispanic audience that the job of a U.S. lawmaker is to put oneself in the shoes of foreign nationals who […]

Yo, Jeb – we can blame your clan for our “broken immigration system

by Skip September 6, 2015

Big Government (emphasis mine): MCALLEN, Texas — Given the opportunity to get to the White House, presidential candidate Jeb Bush would fight to grant Dreamers a path to citizenship while working to fix the broken immigration system in America.  “I, as President, I would go to congress and change the law to give them not […]

All of a sudden now that we have a candidate in Donald Trump who actually PLANS to do, what other candidates have only PROMISED to do, both Krauthammer and Will are reversing all of their prior pontifications. Proving, they, along with a host of others like McCain, Romney, Bush et al, never intended (or intend) to stop the illegal immigration […]

…they fashion their culture wars to be cudgels with which to bang Republicans upside the head politically with them?  This is not a winning strategy from a former NH Speaker of the House (who, by the way, was elected Speaker only with the help of Democrats).  In this video, we see that there is a […]

Yes, illegal immigration is a driver of “Income Inequality”

by Skip August 19, 2015

When you have kids, when you have single moms with kids, when you have adult males with no education and only fit for low skilled work, and there are 42 million illegal immigrants that have poured over our borders (13% of our national population), you Libs think that is going to CLOSE the gap?  Naw, […]

Self-deportation? It’s only a matter of incentive and political will

We can’t build a wall!  We can’t deport them all!  They won’t self-deport! Well, Israel has shown that a wall works very well indeed (not 100%, but very well when compared to prior to the wall.  And there is a country that is taking on the other two as they have decided they have no […]

Certainly ole’ Bernie is tapping into something on the hard Left – proving what a lot of us on the Right have been saying for a while: the center of the Democrat Party is now outright Socialist.  And step by step, over the decades, they have been using the Law & Regulation stick to transform […]

Via Ace – Neo-Neocon.com Let’s see if I can summarize: (1) The Hill has taken to calling unaccompanied children who have arrived in this country illegally “unaccompanied immigrant children.” (2) There are groups who have government contracts to take care of such children. (3) Quite a few of these children have been raped.

Speaking of Flip Flops, here’ssss Jeb Bush!

First and foremost we need to control our border.  A great nation needs to control its border.  Not just at the border, which is hugely important, but also the 40 percent of the people that have come here illegally came with a legal visa and overstayed their bounds.  We ought to be able to figure […]
