  • Hungary shows the world how to secure a nation's borders

    Eastern Europe is leading the way to protect the continent against colonizers from Islamic lands. Hungary is in the forefront, having erected a fence that is patrolled around the clock by Hungarian police and military. There is also support along the border from Poland, Czechoslovakia, and Slovakia as these nations partner together to protect themselves. In this video, the mayor of Assothalom (a rural town in Hungary situated along the southern border shared with Serbia) speaks about border security. And he does not mince his words. He acknowledges that all of Europe must be protected and defended or everyone...

    Washington Post ^ | 11/17/2015 | By Michelle Boorstein
    For many American Christians, the Paris attacks have revealed a conflict between two priorities: The cause of persecuted Middle Eastern Christians and a hard line on security. Following reports that one of the Paris attackers had a Syrian passport and had allegedly registered as a refugee, multiple GOP presidential candidates called for bans on Syrian refugees. On Monday, multiple GOP governors joined in. Considering the United States has absorbed fewer than 2,000 Syrians, this may seem like political posturing, but Congress is set later this year to debate funding for another 10,000 who President Obama has said he wants to...

    There was a painful irony when France's immediate response to the terrorist attacks in Paris was to close the borders. If they had closed the borders decades ago, they might have avoided this attack. Someone once said that the First World War was the most stupid thing that European nations ever did. Countries on both sides of that war ended up worse off than before, whether they were on the winning side or the losing side. History may yet record that an even greater stupidity, with even more catastrophic consequences in the long run, was the European nations' decisions to...

That is a 17 point surge for Trump.Among all Republicans, Trumps enjoys a 34% to 20% lead over Carson.Reuters adds that this “is also bad news for Sen.

"The idea of tracking down and deporting 11 million people is absurd, inhumane, and un-American. No, Trump. -H" Clinton tweeted, quoting a New York Times reporter's tweet on Trump's comments made earlier in the morning on MSNBC.

    President Obama on Thursday slammed Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump’s latest controversial plan to crack down on illegal immigration. “The notion that we’re gonna deport 11, 12 million people from this country — first of all, I have no idea where Mr. Trump thinks the money’s gonna come from," Obama said in an interview with ABC News's George Stephanopoulos. "It would cost us hundreds of billions of dollars to execute that." Obama’s rebuke came after Trump raised the possibility of creating a “deportation force” to remove immigrants living in the U.S. illegally. “Imagine the images on the screen flashed around the world...

    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...

    Billionaire investor George Soros has confirmed he wants to bring down Europe's borders, following the accusation made last week by Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban. Last week, Mr Orban accused Mr Soros – who was born in Hungary – of deliberately encouraging the migrant crisis. "This invasion is driven, on the one hand, by people smugglers, and on the other by those (human rights) activists who support everything that weakens the nation-state," Mr Orban said. "This Western mindset and this activist network is perhaps best represented by George Soros." Mr Soros has now issued an email statement to Bloomberg Business,...

    As America becomes more diverse, that is being reflected in the home countries of those choosing to become American citizens. Nearly 800,000 people decided to become American citizens in the 12 months that ended Sept. 30, 2013 — and more than a third of them came from Asia. Asians comprised the biggest group of new Americans by region, according to recent data from the Department of Homeland Security, edging out those from North America, in which DHS includes those from Central America and the Caribbean. Mexicans remain the single largest group of foreigners who were naturalized as citizens. But by...

    The preeminent funder of border-busting campaigns in the U.S. and overseas now openly admits his efforts in Europe are aimed at destroying national borders on that continent. The unusually frank statement from frequent coup kingpin George Soros comes after Hungary's prime minister accused him of helping to orchestrate the ongoing invasion of the landlocked nation and the rest of Europe by illegal aliens. Soros is arguably the biggest mass migration-promoting coyote on the planet. He is also an admitted Nazi collaborator, described by David Horowitz as a "deracinated Jew," who argues that Muslims are treated so badly in the West...

    A roughly 2,000-mile fence on the Mexican border would cost tens of billions.If Donald Trump were to build a wall along the United States' southern border, it would cost billions. The U.S. border with Mexico is roughly 2,000 miles long and underlines four states from California to Texas. It is a massive stretch of land the Berlin Wall spanned just 96 miles comparatively, and it cost about $25 million to build in 1961, or around $200 million with inflation. Building a wall to keep out illegal immigrants is not a novel plan. About 670 miles of fencing on the...

How will Beck distinguish between the two, and then distinguish the refugees from aspiring terrorists? He says he has a...

The chairman of the Republican Party later called Romney's words "horrific," not so much out of some moral revulsion, but because they sent a clear message of hostility to Hispanic voters, the country's largest minority group and one...

On the U.S.-Mexico border, Trump would build a long, impenetrable wall.

Later, Trump says, the good ones could come back. He also wants to go on a building...

Just one month ago, during his campaign launch, Trump said one of the priorities of his presidency would be to build...

    Misadventures in Diversity ^ | 7/23/15 | Donald Joy
    Entities have identities. To identify a nation, or anything else, is to define it. That is, it must have specific limits one must be able to tell what it is, largely by ruling out what it is not, implicitly and explicitly. In the case of a country, there must be territorial boundaries. It also has have additional characteristics to distinguish it from other countries. Thats where America went wrong, and dead-ended. In trying to be all things to all people everywhere around the globe (not so much a place, necessarily, but an idea, of limitless opportunity and diversity), we...

    Constructing an impassable wall along the U.S.-Mexico border would be a tall order even for master real estate developer and 2016 GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump. "From a security standpoint, it really is not an intelligent solution," said Eric Olson, associate director of the Latin American program at the non-partisan Wilson Center. In fact, "it's ludicrous," Olson said of the idea, which has become a hallmark of Trump's campaign. Experts estimate that building and maintaining such a wall on the 1,954-mile border, which snakes along four huge states, would cost tens of billions of dollars. And the 21,000 border...

    Latinos may decide a presidential election one day. But it wont be in 2016.Is Donald Trump a better a campaign tactician than people think? To hear most political strategists tell it, Hispanics are the most important voting bloc in America. But The Donald has called them rapists, drug dealers and violent criminals. And his visit Thursday to the U.S.-Mexico border promises to produce a new batch of anti-immigration sound bites. Its hard to see any Hispanic ever voting for Trump. But that doesnt necessarily mean his strategy will doom him. By viciously and repeatedly attacking immigration, hes exploiting one of...

    Imagine if you will you were crafting the perfect presidential candidate. It's likely the following would not be on your list: two-time divorcee with multiple bankruptcies; bombastic reality television star who has appeared on professional wrestling shows; loud-mouth uncensored ego maniac with questionable hair. In other words, Donald Trump. But among the 2016 GOP presidential nominees, it's Trump that's taking the headlines. It's Trump who has people talking. And, most tellingly, it's Trump who is surging in the polls, with the latest numbers showing him with almost twice the support of his closest rival. Why? There a several reasons. First,...

    The Washington Post's Right Turn ^ | July 16, 2015 | Jennifer Rubin, Queen of the CINOs
    Two candidates in the GOP presidential race are reacting to Donald Trump in vastly different ways, reflecting on their character. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) not only refused to criticize Trumps racist language about illegal immigrants but praised him, once again demonstrating there is no limit to how low the Texas junior senator will stoop to curry favor with the far right. Then yesterday, Cruz invited himself over to unctuously ingratiate himself with Trump. Thankfully, he did not bow as President Obama has done with foreign potentates. But the entire act showed how weak and desperate Cruz is. He is not...

    Donald Trump dominates the news these days. The impossible big-mouth narcissist from a reality TV show is selling out venues, having to switch locations for overflow, yet still leaving long lines outside his events. All this because Donald Trump reached out and touched the third rail of the politically correct: illegal immigration. Trump probably didnt see the coming tsunami over his remarks; he was just mouthing off, as hes prone to do. But then the American people rose up to join him, to cheer the defiant rebel, as theyre prone to do. Donald certainly wasnt the first to preach on...
