  • BOOM: Rating the GOP field on Amnesty

    04/18/2015 11:03:37 PM PDT · by 2ndDivisionVet · 19 replies
    Doug Ross @ Journal ^ | April 18, 2015
    Over at American Thinker, Pedro Gonzales offers an excellent overview of the GOP field's positions on Amnesty. Here's the executive summary: only one candidate has never changed his position on the topic. Jeb Bush "...Jeb, as we all know, supports amnesty for illegal aliens, and he's proud of it. If he were running in Honduras, I would vote for him in a minute..." Marco Rubio "...Rubio co-authored a bill that would have given amnesty to illegal aliens. He has since tried to walk back from that..." Chris Christie "...Chris has been cagey on the subject, but one thing is clear:...

    / Mount Baekdu is set to explode according to experts and if that isn't shocking enough, keep in mind that Baekdu is responsible for one of the worst eruptions in the last 2,000 years. Professor Yoon Seong-hyo from Pusan National University urged officials to keep a close eye on the highest peak of the Korean peninsula. Baekdu is an active volcano located on the border between North Korea and China. The caldera or cauldron of the Baekdu volcano, which is sometimes called Paektu or Changbai, has risen a centimetre since July, according to new research. "The mountains's height has risen...

    Dan Joseph is on a mission. Who supports a $50/hour minimum wage? What better place to put forward such a bold initiative than in the free speech zone on the sanctified grounds of George Mason University in Virginia. (VIDEO-AT-LINK)Now, while Joseph was able to find a few supporters, some students on campus knew that raising the minimum wage will lead to job losses and increased pricing for some goods. One man called the law racist and he’s not the only one. The late economist Milton Freidman described minimum wage laws as the most anti-African-American law on the books, as he...

    “To Understand the Scriptures” (Luke 24:36-49)Have you ever thought about what the Bible is all about? I mean, if you had to boil it down to just a few short sentences, what would you say is the main message of the Scriptures? You know, a lot of people have a lot of different opinions about the Bible and what it is saying. They pull this verse or that verse out of context and twist it like a wax nose to make it suit their purpose. People approach the Bible with their presuppositions and then find in the Bible what they...

    The Huffington Post's Media Blog ^ | April 17, 2015 | Jackson Connor
    (VIDEO-AT-LINK) The city of Chicago is proposing a $5.5 million reparations package for those who suffered under the ruthless rule of police commander Jon Burge from 1972 to 1991. Backed by Mayor Rahm Emanuel, the plan would supply victims with free college tuition, counseling for drug abuse and psychological issues, and include a formal apology from the city, according to the Chicago Tribune. While the plan appears to be an attempt to reckon with part of the city's less-than-spotless past, Thursday evening Fox Business Network's Charles Payne said he's afraid nationwide slavery reparations might be next.

    The Atlantic ^ | April 17, 2015 | Adam Chandler
    This week, Senator Jeanne Shaheen of New Hampshire introduced the Women on the Twenty Act, legislation aimed at putting an American woman on the $20 bill. Shaheen's efforts nod to an initiative by Women on 20s, a group that is lobbying to change the $20 by 2020. That year Americans will mark the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th amendment, which granted women the right to vote. (The $20 is also overdue for a redesign to thwart counterfeiters.) For Andrew Jackson, current face of the $20 bill, this is the latest assault on the paper perch he has...

    Thomas Paine famously wrote in The American Crisis, “How easy it is to abuse truth and language, when men, by habitual wickedness, have learned to set justice at defiance”. In condemning the King of England, Paine continued, “amongst the various assumptions of character, which hypocrisy has taught, and men have practiced, there is none that raises a higher relish of disgust, than to see disappointed inveteracy twisting itself, by he most visible falsehoods, into an appearance of piety which it has no pretensions to”. Paine was articulating the stance in which Britain, most notably the King, had claimed to be...

    More Hillary Cronyism Revealed – How Cisco Used Clinton Foundation Donations to Cover-up Human Rights Abuse in China In her 2014 memoir “Hard Choices,” Clinton reiterated her support for human-rights advocates in China. She specifically criticized the Great Firewall, writing that after she made comments about the right to dissent in China in 2011, “censors went right to work erasing mentions of my message from the Internet.”But the issue of Chinese repression — and Cisco’s role — was already known by then. In 2009, weeks after Clinton’s State Department had named Cisco a finalist for the secretary of state’s Awards...

But someone forgot to fax the Jehovah's Witnesses that Jews do not live in Israel to become converts to Christianity. Ra'anana residents, municipal officials, a city Chief Rabbi and the Yad L'Achim anti-assimilation organization coordinated efforts to cancel a Jehovah's Witnesses baptism ceremony today. This is the second time that Yad L'Achim has succeeded in heading off the same baptism-of-Jews ceremony. It was first scheduled to be held in...

Given the notoriety of Hillary Clinton's recent stop at a Chipotle Mexican Grill restaurant in Ohio, Los Angeles-based Pink Taco is vying to become the official fast-food choice of the former First Lady's 2016 campaign.

Sharpton labeled McConnell's actions "racist.

Some of these raises will start immediately and others will follow until all REMAINING workers will see remarkable increases in their salaries; some will be getting $80 per week raises. Nevertheless, WalMart has not become the largest retailer in the world by voluntarily...

This comes on the heels of last weeks’ Purple Heart award ceremonies for the Ft.

    Social scientists have found that by the time children enter kindergarten, there is already a large academic achievement gap between students from wealthy and poor families. We still don't know exactly why that's the case. There's a sense that it at least partly has to do with the fact that affluent mothers and fathers have more intensive parenting sytles—they're more likely to read to their kids, for instance—and have enough money to make sure their toddlers grow up well-nourished, generally cared for, and intellectually stimulated. At the same time, poor children often grow up in chaotic, food-insecure, stressful homes that...

    President Obama says that evidence that the Islamic State has opened a training camp in Mexico, just a few miles from El Paso on the Texas border, vindicates his decision to grant expedited amnesty to illegal immigrants from Latin America. "We've all seen the atrocities these terrorists are capable of," the President observed. "Who can blame Mexicans for fleeing? To deny these refugees sanctuary would be inhumane. To deport them would be cruel and unusual punishment. To delay their integration into our society merely on the grounds that Congress has failed to enact the necessary legislation would be barbaric."

    If you’ve recently finished running the gantlet known as income tax preparation, you might be particularly cheered by Sen. Ted Cruz’s suggestion to abolish the Internal Revenue Service. After all, few of us — except perhaps a few tax preparers for whom the practice provides a livelihood — enjoy navigating the increasingly arcane bureaucracy that governs our tax code. Every year, it seems, there are new rules, new deductions, new forms to fill out and new uncertainty about how all of it will affect one’s bank account.

In part, Stenberg declared that the rise of white rappers Macklemore and Iggy Azalea have been tied to their ‘appropriation’ of black culture. She states that their increased popularity has...

    Dr. Langdon Winner, who describes himself as “very liberal to put it mildly,” believes that the terrorist organization is “imaginary.” Dr. Winner has also written that white people don’t exist, the Black Panthers of the 1960s have been right all along, and that conservatives “love to humiliate the poor.” He works as a professor at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute... ...Yet most stunning is that Professor Winner believes that ISIS is an "imaginary foe" and that the true enemy of the United States is capitalism:

    CBS NEWS April 17, 2015 REENA FLORES Obama: Loretta Lynch Delay "Embarrassing" President Obama criticized the delay of Loretta Lynch's confirmation as U.S. attorney general, calling it "embarrassing" and a "crazy situation." "What we still have is this crazy situation where a woman who everybody agrees is qualified... has been now sitting there for longer than the previous seven attorney generals combined," Mr. Obama said during a joint press conference with Matteo Renzi, Italy's prime minister. "And there's no reason for it. Nobody can describe a reason for it beyond political gamesmanship in the Senate. "There are times where the...

    MANCHESTER, N.H. — Former Florida governor Jeb Bush on Friday once again defended his decision to intervene in the case of Terri Schiavo, a Florida woman whose death capped an intense national debate about ethics and politics, but also suggested that Medicare recipients should be required to outline end-of-life care plans before accepting the benefits. "I don’t think I would have changed anything," he said in response to a questioner during a "Politics and Eggs" breakfast here Friday. "I stayed within the constitutional responsibilities or authority that I had. We changed the law first and then a year later it...

    Incestuous Washington Publication Bravely Reports on Washington Incestuousness by BRENDAN BORDELON April 17, 2015 Politico ran a lengthy piece revealing the romantic relationship between House Transportation Committee chairman Bill Shuster and Shelley Rubino, a high-powered airline-industry lobbyist. The story’s length, prominent placement, and breathless tone raised more than a few eyebrows, given that legal experts interviewed for the piece say the relationship “would not appear to violate ethics laws.” But there’s another reason the piece warrants a double-take: For all the hand-wringing over romantic relationships between politicians and lobbyists, the reporters and staff of Politico itself, as much if not...

    Last month, Sen. Ted Cruz, the Texas Republican, became one of the first major candidates in the marathon slog that is our modern presidential election cycle. Usually, when I want to see people get hit while running an obstacle course, I binge-watch Wipeout, the popular ABC show. But as anyone on social media is certainly well aware, there is no escaping our country’s least-enjoyable reality show: America’s Next Top Presidential Candidate (until the Next One, and the Next One, and the One After That). This year, my election fatigue is already so bad, I won’t even watch political gaffes on...

    A feminist activist has opened a store in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania that will charge men more than women to protest the "wage gap" she believes is badly hurting women in the United States. The store, which will only be operating in Pittsburgh from April 1 until April 30, is called "76<100." According to its website, "<100 is a traveling pop-up shop for gender wage equality. Each installment of the project offers work from exceptional women artists, makers, and entrepreneurs from throughout the US, priced to reflect the wage gap in it’s respective location." In Pittsburgh, men who enter the store will...

A spokeswoman for Chairman Jason Chaffetz told CQ Roll Call staff is in the process of putting together a letter to the Secret Service to try and understand the circumstances surrounding the incident. At least one public official was warning against overreaction. “The gyrocopter incident yesterday was not a...

    Why Is Obama Parroting Castro Talking Points? by MONA CHAREN April 17, 2015 The Cuban people are suffering because of their repressive government, not the U.S. embargo. Two relatively recent photos of Barack Obama with foreign leaders reveal much about his deep-dyed leftism. The first features President Obama and democratically-elected prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu, leader of one of America’s most loyal friends. Obama looks strained. His face is stiff, and his eyes are veiled. The second is a snap of Obama at the recent Summit of the Americas in Panama. He’s seated with “President” Raul Castro, leader of a bitter...

    Comedian and radio personality Adam Carolla is apparently a big fan of Sen. Ted Cruz. During a Friday morning interview with the Texas Republican, Carolla approved of the presidential candidate and personally thanked him for wanting to outright abolish the Internal Revenue Service. “Thank you so much for wanting to eliminate the IRS,” Carolla began the conversation. “It’s driving me nuts.” “I think that is a powerful populist issue and today is the day when its on people’s minds,” Cruz said, reminding listeners that Wednesday was Tax Day. Carolla argued that taxes are an important issue that gets overshadowed by...

Witness her ordering a burrito bowl at Chipotle! Which she did wearing shades, as did her chief aide Huma Abedin, yielding security-camera pictures that made them look (to borrow from Karl Rove) like fugitives on the lam, wanted in seven states for a failed foreign policy. There’s something surreal about Hillary Clinton’s Marie Antoinette tour, sampling cake and commoners. But what else can she do? After Barack Obama, she’s the best-known political figure in America. She has...
