Donald Trump Is Not a Racist. Don’t Go Back to 2005, Republicans.
While I continue to admire Donald Trump’s ability to command attention at long, rambling, unscripted press conferences, I still am not persuaded he will be the next President of the United States. Nonetheless, the GOP establishment in Washington has decided to treat Donald Trump the way the Bush White House treated many conservative leaders in 2005 during the immigration fight. They’re labeling him racist for | Read More »
Washington Post channels Kelly Osbourne on immigration
So Donald Trump has released an immigration plan. I’d be lying if I said that I like all of it but I like the predicates he announces for any immigration plan. 1. A nation without borders is not a nation. There must be a wall across the southern border. 2. A nation without laws is not a nation. Laws passed in accordance with our Constitutional | Read More »
America Reaches A Moral Crossroads
Ann, You Are Quite Simply Wrong It’s sad watching a good culture go bad. It’s like that jug of milk you’ve left in the back of the fridge for a week or so too long. You don’t get around to noticing it until you do. Then it really detracts from your day. This pretty much describes where I’m at with a | Read More »

THE DONALD Has A Point: Illegal Immigrants Are Five Times More Likely To Commit Felonies
The Real Problem With US Immigration Policy. The troubles may have started as early as the 1840’s with The Westies in cities such as Boston and New York. They continued in the early years of the 20th Century as The Outfit terrorized Chicago, Illinois and fed on the stupidity of the utterly unenforceable Volstead Act. After the CCCP became nothing more | Read More »
Federal Judge Drops the Hammer on Obama Administration Immigration Defiance
When a federal judge starts using words like “contempt of Court” about senior Obama Administration officials, it gets real serious, real fast.
A federal judge in the case against President Obama’s illegal Executive action on immigration has leveled some serious accusations against not only the Administration and its DOJ attorneys but senior level officials for “violating” a federal court order.
The court has ordered a “show cause” hearing for August 19th at which “Each individual Defendant,” not just their DOJ attorneys, “must attend and be prepared to show why he or she should not be held in contempt of Court.”
Here’s what happened.

The human cost of Obama’s immigration policy
Though Barack Obama was not in San Francisco on July 1, he was just as culpable in the murder of 31 year old Katie Steinle as the man who pulled the trigger: a five-time deported illegal with seven prior felony convictions. It is the policy of this administration to ignore US immigration policy. One doesn’t know the reasons for this decision but it is difficult | Read More »
Republicans must use Donald Trump to move the ball forward
Donald Trump isn’t a serious candidate for President. Sure, he has the notoriety and the money to prop himself up and pretend to be a credible candidate, much as Ross Perot bought his way to a lot of noise but no electoral votes. But the only reason people pay attention is to enjoy the spectacle. He’s not a serious competitor. The worst thing for any | Read More »
The Right Takes Denmark
Here is some more pleasant international news to add to the Conservative Party’s success in Britain alongside the success of the center-right coalition in Finland this year. After being out of power since 2011, the right wing bloc led by Lars Løkke Rasmussen has again captured a majority of seats in Denmark’s Folketing (Parliament). As with any country with more than two parties in its | Read More »

Congress is Investigating Asylum Seekers with Terror Ties
Last year, I discussed how the United States should be among the countries offering asylum to Iraqi Christians. The same can also be said about Christians in all territories currently under the Islamic State’s control. However, our offer of asylum should not come without attempting to weed out those who could be threats to America. Unfortunately, some with ties to terrorist groups have managed to | Read More »
The right way to criticize the H1-B Visa program
The H1-B Visa program is a lightning rod. Conceptually it’s a great idea: Find a way to bring productive, skilled people into the United States to boost our economy. In practice it’s become a mess of big government micromanagement, which has made it an easy target for anti-immigration critics. Here’s how we need to fix H1-B, and mollify the (somewhat legitimate) fears of those in | Read More »
On H1B Visas: Scott Walker Will Fight For American Workers, Senators Cruz and Rubio Not So Much.
Why Scott Walker FLip-Flopped. One of the few intelligent and worthwhile things that John Maynard Keynes contributed to society is the following quote “When my information changes, I alter my conclusions. What do you do, sir?” Governor Scott Walker’s information has recently changed. Remember that Governor Walker had the guts to back down the Progressive Establishment in The Democratic Party | Read More »

Mo Brooks Stops The Outsourcing of Military Slots To Illegal Aliens In The NDAA
No Empire Which Makes Poor Policy Is Immune To Downfall. For most of its history, Rome’s military was the envy of the ancient world. But during the decline, the makeup of the once mighty legions began to change. Unable to recruit enough soldiers from the Roman citizenry, emperors like Diocletian and Constantine began hiring foreign mercenaries to prop up their | Read More »
From The Nook of RMJ: Flashback To The Future?
Pray This Isn’t Our Future. Extrapolation, when based on solid and unimpeachable mathematical data, can often fail to effectively model a reality that could occur in the future. The practice gets even more tenuous when applied to qualitative samplings of political events, moral currents and societal Zeitgeist. Dan Simmons, a masterful novelist whose works have stood out phenomenally well in genres | Read More »
