    Et tu Columbus?

    First it was L.A. Next it was Seattle. Now Columbus? From Columbus Dispatch – “Mayor Michael B. Coleman has banned city workers from traveling to Arizona…” and “He agrees with those who want to send a message to the state of Arizona that this is not the American way.” Really?

    Sonoran lawmakers say returning citizens are a burden

    Sonoran lawmakers say returning citizens are a burden You can’t make this up. On the heels of Eric Holder condemning Arizona’s SB 1070, which he HASN’T READ, comes a verbal lambasting by Sonoran officials. A delegation from the border state recently traveled to Tucson where, whining (in Spanish), they explained that the law “will have devastating consequences.” Returning countrymen will apparently burden schools, compete for | Read More »

    Enough Mr. President

    The sitting president of the United States of America stands in our capital city, at the people’s house, and joins the leader of a foreign power in demeaning the people of one the sovereign states that compose the Union of which he is president.  Surreal. Enough, Mr. President. President Obama’s policies, I believe, are radically different than the intentions embodied in those left by the | Read More »

    “What, Didn’t You Read the Memo?”

    Eric Holder and Janet Napolitano are not just ignorant of the contents of the Arizona immigration law, but apparently have not looked at a White House position outlined under George Bush in 2005 (and not redacted by the Obama administration, BTW) The memo concludes that (1) States have inherent power, subject to federal preemption, to make arrests for violations of federal law.

    Comprehensive: Caveat emptor

    “Comprehensive” sounds good.  Really good.  It sounds like serious-minded people are rolling up their sleeves to tackle big issues with big answers.  It sounds like a forward thinking, all-inclusive strategy.  It sounds responsible, it sounds bold, and it sounds good. Now think about this: 1. Comprehensive immigration reform 2. Comprehensive energy policy 3. Comprehensive healthcare reform The latter one of these is the law of | Read More »

    The Left is Gerrymandering American Citizenship

    The United States of America is the greatest nation on earth. Unfortunately, the left does not recognize that. In the name of their so-called “human” and “civil” rights they are on the verge of granting amnesty to some 13 million illegal aliens; essentially ceding American sovereignty to the rest of the world. America takes pride in our ability to be a free and diverse people | Read More »

    Where Do I Live?

    Due to professional obligations that diverted my attention away from RedState and the news of the day for the last couple of weeks, I awoke this morning to learn – well – that the world is officially upside down. Now, I realize that some of this may be repetitive for those who have been paying attention – but imagine my surprise to see the news | Read More »
