  • Americans agree with Trump: The illegal immigrants must go

    11/25/2015 4:43:37 PM PST · by RoosterRedux · 48 replies ^ | Todd Starnes
    Most Americans agree with Donald Trump -- the illegal aliens have to go. Head 'em up, move 'em out. A new Fox News poll shows 52 percent of the nation favors deporting the millions of illegals back to their home countries. Republicans and Democrats support Mr. Trump’s plan. But the numbers among Republicans are astronomical. Seventy percent agree with Mr. Trump -- a super-majority. So why does the Republican establishment continue to support pro-amnesty candidates? Jeb Bush accused Mr. Trump of preying on people's deep-seated fears. “This whole idea of preying on people’s deep-seated fears of what the future looks...

    Terrorism has vaulted to the nation's No. 1 issue as Americans say they are as concerned about attacks as they were after the Boston Marathon bombing in 2013, according to a new poll. A Reuters/Ipsos poll said that virtually everybody has heard of the ISIS attacks in Paris, pushing terrorism into a tie with the economy, not global warming as Democratic candidates have claimed. The poll also found that 60 percent of Americans want Washington to do more to attack ISIS, though they prefer air strikes over troop involvement. The details of the poll:

    As the Republican presidential primary heats up, illegal immigration is again taking center stage. While this is nothing new (as we know President Reagan attempted to address it in the ’80s, John McCain made it a priority in ’08, and on), the discussion has taken an interesting turn this election cycle. At issue, of course, are Obama’s executive amnesty, the recent influx of illegal immigrants (including huge numbers of children), the vast number of illegals currently living and working in the U.S., border security (such as it is), and a host of related issues including the burden of illegal immigration...

    How much higher can Donald Trump’s popularity rise? Trump has leaped ahead 17 percentage points among likely Republican voters since Nov. 6, when he was tied with Ben Carson at 25 percent. Despite what many saw as a poor-spirited attack on Carson about the retired surgeon’s “pathological temper,” Trump continues to surge ahead in the polls. “The Republican establishment has long expected the outspoken billionaire to fade,” suggested Yahoo News, “and he has yet to give it the satisfaction. Trump has consistently held more than 25 percent of the support among all Republicans in the Reuters/Ipsos rolling poll for more...

    Ann Coulter took to Twitter on Friday night to respond to the Paris terror attacks, saying that “Donald Trump was elected president tonight.” The conservative commentator tweeted a series of reactions to the attacks that left more than 120 dead, calling for “no more Muslim immigration.” She also targeted recent U.S. college student protests, as well as American gun and immigration laws and proposals. Coulter ended her string of Tweets with: “They can wait if they like until next November for the actual balloting, but Donald Trump was elected president tonight.”

"The notion that we're going to deport 11, 12 million people from this country - first of all, I have no idea where Mr. Trump thinks the money's going to come from," Mr. Obama said in an interview with George Stephanopoulos of ABC News.

    When it comes to the topic of immigration, you may not be surprised to find that a new poll discovered that Republicans trust Donald Trump more than any other candidate on the issue. A new YouGov poll found that Trump was far and away the most trusted candidate concerning immigration among the still large field of GOP candidates for president. About half of of those polled, 49 percent, said that Trump had the right ideas on immigration. These findings are significant considering months of attacks by the mainstream media trying to tear Trump down over the immigration issue. His ratings...

    A new poll of 2,000 citizens shows that Donald Trump's immigration stance has more support among Hispanic Americans than Gov. Mitt Romney won in 2012, even after the pollsters reminded respondents of Trump's most controversial statements on immigration. Twenty-eight percent of Hispanic Americans agreed with Trump's June statement that "When Mexico sends its people, they're not sending their best. They're sending people that have lots of problems. They're bringing drugs. They're bringing crime. They're rapists." In 2012, Romney won 27 percent of the Hispanic-American vote. Twelve percent of Hispanic-Americans said they were not sure what to say about Trump's comment,...

In less than a week, immigration advocates have managed to decisively if inadvertently make a case against illegal immigration just by showing the public what it's all about. In a Youtube video calculated to offend, put on by a political action committee called, a couple of Latino nine-year old "anchor babies" made a gangsta-style rap directed against Donald Trump.

    In Tuesday’s elections, voters rejected recreational marijuana, transgender rights, and illegal-immigrant sanctuaries; they reacted equivocally to gun-control arguments; and they handed a surprise victory to a Republican gubernatorial candidate who emphasized his opposition to gay marriage. Democrats have become increasingly assertive in taking liberal social positions in recent years, believing that they enjoy majority support and even seeking to turn abortion and gay rights into electoral wedges against Republicans. But Tuesday’s results—and the broader trend of recent elections that have been generally disastrous for Democrats not named Barack Obama—call that view into question. Indeed, they suggest that the left has...

Still, I was truly shocked to see Sanders—not in some throwaway comment on the campaign trail but in prepared remarks on the Senate floor—flatly call the death penalty "murder."

Question: how can we begin to explain the moral compass of liberals like Sanders who...

Another company developed the electronics on China’s first atomic bomb. A third sells technology to China’s air-to-air missile research academy. Their ties to the Chinese military run deep, and they all have something else in common: Each Chinese company counts one of America’s tech giants — IBM, Cisco Systems or Microsoft — as a partner. Such links, which are generally not well publicized, are now at the center of a debate among some in the American defense community, including former United...

    The TPP, like many treaties before it, embraces the Investor-State Dispute Settlement process (ISDS), which allows corporate actors to sue sovereign nations to seek compensation for rules or regulations that impede the corporations ability to maximize profits. Unlike national courts that commonly allow corporations to sue to recoup actual investments, ISDS insists that corporations be compensated for expected profits, sometimes profits they anticipate decades into the future. The ISDS process is one-sided and undemocratic. Corporate claims against sovereign states are heard in special courts overseen by a handful of judges, most of whom are corporate lawyers. Once the ISDS panel...

    On the day after Pope Francis spoke to Congress about the dangers of violent extremism in the name of religious fundamentalism, presidential candidate Ted Cruz, appearing at a Values Voter summit, threatened to murder Iranian Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. The Texas senator vowed that, if elected, he would rip to shreds the Iranian agreement deal recently passed through Congress, and kill the countrys leader if it didnt give up its nuclear ambitions. If the Ayatollah doesnt understand that, we may have to help introduce him to the 72 virgins, Cruz said to wild cheers from the audience of conservative Christians. The...

    The spectacular rise of Donald Trump as leading presidential candidate should at last force Republicans in Washington to face the chronic ineffectiveness of their party: rank and file Republicans are turning to the Donald because he, unlike the party establishment, seems energetic, articulate, and determined to get something done. They have so long despaired of a party leadership that is inarticulate, somnolent, and inept that they are not deterred by the fact that Trump is dangerously unpredictable. The problem is not an insufficiently conservative party, as some conservatives think; a two-party system will always have a broad spectrum of viewpoints...

    Pope Francis's address to Congress may have voters on both sides of the aisle seriously considering supporting Donald Trump’s immigration plan.  The pope stated that we must "not be taken aback by the numbers" of illegals he calls "refugees" invading our country.  Rather, we must apply the Golden Rule to the 11-30 million people openly defying our nation's rule of law. Unfortunately, Francis's "do unto others" dictum does not apply to cash-strapped lower- and middle-income Americans.  He says we must see the “refugees” as “persons … seeing their faces and listening to their stories,” but he exhibits no such...

    Once again, I don't get it. Here are some dopey cliches not to use in your answers: He didnt resonate. He wasnt ready for prime time. He failed to gain traction. He was a wallflower in the debates. Stop it. I can talk like a Chuck Todd too, but what good would that do anyone? You want to not only win the presidency, but you want to elect someone who is not only conservative but has proven he can achieve difficult conservative goals even in a very hostile environment - right?

  • Obama Calls Obama a Muslim

    0bama has called 0bama a Muslim. Anyone remember when StepOnallofus had to correct him, You mean your CHRISTIAN faith?. Problem is that 0s statement doesnt make sense unless he HAD MEANT TO SAY Muslim. I am thankful that my opponent John McLame has not made an issue of my CHRISTIAN faith. WTF? Its not like he was an such an outspoken bible-thumper that it could have been used against him. However if the word Muslim is used, it makes perfect sense that he would have given McLame a hat tip for not making an issue of it....
  • HILARIOUS/EPIC Carly Fiorina Debate Montage. "Let the Bodies Hit the Floor"

    I've been calling this one for a while. That Fiorina would deliver the first in a series of blows to Trump. That America would be introduced to her. That shed win. Now everyone from CNN to Fox News, to Salon, to even Breitbart News agrees that Carly Fiorina walked away with a landslide. Hell, even Cosmopolitan is singing her praises. Her performance was so dominant, it reminded me of a song from my youth. And so I made a montage... (video at link)

    So, a co-worker asked me what I thought about the Presidential race this evening. Before I could answer, a Latino visitor comes up and asks, "Are y'all talking about Trump?" This is what he had to say on the subject:
