If I Were Marco Rubio
Senator Marco Rubio spent the better part of last year joining together with Democrats to make a bipartisan push for amnesty and comprehensive open borders.

The Obselescence of the Fourteenth Amendment
The following quote is from Boston Globe Columnist Jeff Jacoby: “Our nation has been enriched – not “overrun” – because of birthright citizenship.

Liberalism, open borders rhetoric arrives…at the NASA Astronaut Corps?
Earlier this month, rookie (and now veteran) Astronaut Jose Hernandez returned to Earth aboard Space Shuttle Discovery after completing mission STS-128, which delivered supplies to the International Space Station and also featured his fellow crew members performing a series of station assembly spacewalks. Neato mosquito, right? Yet another remarkable achievement for some U.S. Astronauts (and one guy from the European Space Agency)? No doubt. Unfortunately, | Read More »
