This Madness Must Stop
As the Washington Post Editorial Board – not known for its conservatism – noted last week, “[n]o convicted felon, let alone one with multiple narcotics convictions, deserves sanctuary in the United States.” It’s outrageous that we have tolerated sanctuary cities for this long. They provide a safe haven for dangerous criminals to repeatedly commit crimes against everyday American citizens like Kate Steinle.
That is why I offered an amendment to the 2016 Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Appropriations Bill that will ensure cities like San Francisco comply with federal immigration laws and ICE requests to prevent tragedies like this from ever occurring again. My amendment, adopted by the committee by a 28-21 vote, directs DHS to withhold grant funding to cities that operate with sanctuary policies. If these cities wish to continue to subvert the law they will do so without the support of American taxpayers.

Nothing is quite as American as the Wehrmacht
I’m agnostic on the presence of Donald Trump in the GOP primaries. I’m definitely not in the same camp with some of my colleagues. I think, at this point in the campaign, Trump is serving a very useful function. But there are things that he does that simply calls into question his own judgment (the rather broad statement about Mexicans and crime, for instance) and now | Read More »
The mainstreaming of sexual deviancy
You. Will. Be. Made. To. Care. The Learning Channel (TLC) is promoting an upcoming reality series called “All That Jazz.” It features a mentally disturbed teenage boy who, with his parents’ connivance, labors under the illusion that he is a girl. Big things are on the horizon for one of our favorite transgender teen activists. Jazz Jennings, the 14-year-old who has been an outspoken supporter | Read More »
Key & Peele illustrate the marriage divide with a funny sketch
The cable TV series Key & Peele did a sketch on the societal effects of the Obergefell v. Hodges Supreme Court decision. I bring it to our attention here not just because it’s funny, but because it effectively illustrates the mindset of the radical left as it pushes an agenda of demanding everyone treat homosexuality as a normal thing.
Hillary Rodham Clinton’s Yesterday Economics
Has Uber now become an issue in Election 2016? It shouldn’t be. In a well-run democratic republic with a small and reasonable government; the conditions under which I hire or am hired to perform work would be an MP, not a YP. America has increasingly become a nation of busy-bodies expecting a benevolent government to protect them from all consequences resulting from poor decision-making. Thus, | Read More »

So apparently the opposition to a 20 week abortion ban is about the MONEY.
So, basically, Planned Parenthood finds that abortion is good for the organlegging trade.

Senator Rubio Has A Point On Iran
“This U.S.-North Korean agreement will help to achieve a long-standing and vital American objective: an end to the threat of nuclear proliferation on the Korean peninsula.” –President Bill Clinton (18 October 1994) So has gone completely off the Gang of Eight reservation. Hopefully for good. “In what way?” The Skeptical Conservative will ask. In that he has actually evaluated a current events issue through the | Read More »
These states are standing up to runaway courts
Pardon me if I was the last person to hear about this, but I was glad over the weekend to read that Governor Mary Fallin refuses to remove the Ten Commandments from the Oklahoma capitol, despite some crazy court insisting otherwise. She explained her decision by saying “Oklahoma is a state where we respect the rule of law, and we will not ignore the state | Read More »

Planned Parenthood in the business of selling baby parts
We all knew that Planned Parenthood was a brutal, corrupt criminal enterprise staffed by soulless cretins but now we have proof no only of their moral depravity but of their criminality. The non-profit citizen journalism group, Center for Medical Progress, wandered into an abortion facility in California and interviewed Dr. Deborah Nucatola, an abortionist and Senior Director, Medical Services at Planned Parenthood Federation of America. They | Read More »
DC Metro riders continue to look out for each other
Over the weekend I posted on the murder on the Red Line of the DC Metro on July 4. Long story short, a young man was stabbed about 40 times and beaten by a single assailant while 10 or so adult passengers looked on and did nothing. It received at least one interesting response from a self-avowed coward who asserted that you had to be | Read More »
We Already Know What Will Happen
We already know what is going to happen with Iran. In a few years, there will be an underground nuclear detonation signaling that Iran has learned to make a bomb and is deploying a nuclear arsenal. It will destabilize the region and provoke a war that is even now foreseeable. But until the moment the seismographs register the nuclear explosion, Democrats and the media will | Read More »
Obama caves to Iran on every issue
This is no surprise. The president of the United States has agreed to provide a state sponsor of terrorism with nuclear weapons, to open to flow of conventional weapons, and give them about $100 billion in the process. The White House also announced that in the future Obama is not to be called the commander-in-chief but “Rouhani’s bitch.” This is what the deal entails. Iranian | Read More »
Really Terrible Ideas Do In Fact Generate Bipartisanship. See: Obama, President Barack
Ahhh…bipartisanship. The unicorn of Washington, D.C. So many Ponce de Leons seek this Fountain of Youth. Like de Leon, most finally give up – and just retire in Florida. Congressional gerrymandering has rendered so many districts so very partisan. And then we wonder why a 72% Republican-district-representative and a 78% Democrat-district-representative can’t find common ground. About the only time there is bipartisanship is when an | Read More »
Her Get Up and Go Done Got Up and Went
Did you see Hillary Clinton’s press conference yesterday? She is like the Giant Sequoia of Campaign 2016 — old and casting a long shadow over the rest of the candidates. She claimed to be in favor of a tomorrow and future, but then attacked tech companies like Uber and AirBnb, both companies used by a growing number of people who could be referred to as | Read More »
