    When Sen. Ted Cruz declared that the majority of criminals are Democrats, it was a masterful stroke. The media is going crazy over the declaration, claiming it's outrageous.On Hugh Hewitt's radio show Monday, Cruz said that the Planned Parenthood shooting has really displayed the ugly underbelly of the media. You know, every time you have some sort of violent crime or mass killing, you can almost see the media salivating, hoping, hoping, desperately that the murderer happens to be a Republican so they can use it to try to paint their political enemies.""Now listen, here's the simple and undeniable...

    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) said late Monday that most violent criminals also identify as Democrats. "Here is the simple and undeniable fact – the overwhelming majority of violent criminals are Democrats," he said on “The Hugh Hewitt Show” that evening. "There is a reason why for years the Democrats have been viewed as soft on crime," Cruz continued. "They go in and appoint to the bench judges who release violent criminals. "They go in and fight to give the right to vote to convicted felons,” the 2016 GOP presidential candidate added. "Why? "The Democrats know that convicted felons tend to...

    Kyri Viehman came out of the Michael's Craft store after buying Christmas decorations in Fenton, Missouri, to find a $100 bill tucked under her windshield wiper blade. Unfortunately for her, the bill was a fake and part of a scam to lure potential victims out of their cars to rob them. In the case of Viehman, it wasn't until after a few minutes of driving down the road that she did what most people would do: get out of the car and focus on not letting that $100 bill blow away. A note on the fake bill said: "Ha you...

    Esteban Torres was 3 years old when his father was sent back to Mexico by U.S. immigration authorities. "One day, my father didn't come home," remembers Torres, who lived with his family in a mining camp in Arizona at the time. "My brother and I were left without a father. We never saw him again." Torres, 85, who went on to become a congressman representing the Pico Rivera area, was part of a generation of people whose lives were changed dramatically by large-scale deportation campaigns during the 1930s, '40s and '50s in which millions of Mexican nationals were rounded up...

"Larry Jones, who is overseeing the body camera implementation for the city, told members of City Council’s Safety Committee that between January and September 30, the department’s Office of Professional Standards received 225 complaints against officers – down from 374 during the same period last year." The cameras have been fully deployed to front-line officers in all the five districts since September. Since then there have been much fewer complaints about police misconduct. The main reason?

    Oops! As a byproduct of an internal dispute at the far-left think-tank the Center for American Progress (CAP), it has been revealed that Palestinian advisers were brought into the Ferguson, Missouri demonstrations to advise the rioters. Exactly who paid for them to apparently fly halfway around the world (or otherwise build "strong relationships") and stick their noses into an American political dispute is unclear, though it has been bandied about that George Soros has played a major role in funding the #BlackLivesMatter movement that is ginning up black anger, and presumably 2016 election turnout for Hillary.

    Coinciding with the mass release of federal inmates, the Obama administration is spending $1.7 million on a “re-entry program” to ease the transition from prison and ordering public housing facilities not to reject tenants with criminal records.The goal is to reduce barriers to public housing, employment and educational opportunities by promoting rehabilitation and reintegration for the formerly incarcerated, the feds explain in an announcement. A key component of the program is a joint venture between the Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to help public housing residents expunge or seal their criminal records....

Human trafficking has become a trade so lucrative and prevalent, that it knows no borders and links towns in central Mexico with cities like Atlanta and New York. U.S. and Mexican officials both point to a town in central Mexico that for years has been a major source of human trafficking rings and a place where victims are taken before being eventually forced into prostitution.

On NPR Wednesday morning, conservative Republican Alfonso Aguilar slammed Trump's comments. "The Eisenhower mass deportation policy was tragic," said Aguilar....

    Radio host Mark Levin predicts President Obama has a 2016 election trick up his sleeve – a blanket pardon of thousands of federal inmates. “Everything good is turned upside-down, and now he wants to release thousands more prisoners. And he doesn’t want those hiring at the federal level, in the federal bureaucracy, to be able to know if people have actually served time in certain circumstances. This is just incredible to me. Just think about Obama, what his priorities are. Illegal aliens, not American citizens. American citizens he has contempt for,” Levin said Tuesday, the Daily Caller reported.

A big hole in the congressional process to rush the bill through to full approval in the Senate has been exposed by a former prosecutor who says victims of crime were not given a chance to be heard.

    Many people may share Senator Bernie Sanders' complaint that he was tired of hearing about Hillary Clinton's e-mails. But the controversy is about issues far bigger than e-mails. One issue is the utter disaster created by the Obama administration's foreign policy in Libya, carried out by Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State. An even bigger issue is whether high officials of government can ignore the law and refuse to produce evidence when it is subpoenaed. If they can, then the whole separation of powers the checks and balances in the Constitution gives way to arbitrary government by corrupt...

The speaker has made it clear that he wants to solve some outstanding issues before he leaves, said a Boehner aide, who was not authorized to discuss the private deliberations. No decisions have been made, but a resolution on the debt ceiling is certainly possible. In the Senate, GOP Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky said Tuesday the preference was not to simply raise the debt...

In a state of policy, the Office of Management and Budget said if Congress wont pass a bill legalizing illegal immigrants, it should butt out and let President Obama carry out his own policies, which include narrowing the number of illegal immigrants he deems worthy of deporting. And he said trying to force local police...

The procedure entails gripping the child with medical instruments, twisting off limbs one-by-one until the baby bleeds to death and then crushing the head. Asked by Committee Chairman Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-Va) whether such a humane procedure would be an appropriate method of executing convicted murderers, Ms. Smith said no. Even if the condemned individual were sedated tearing him apart would be horrifically barbaric and messy. Rather...

    A state appeals court voiced deep concerns Monday about racial profiling during criminal trials in New Jersey and directed judges in lower courts to instantly remove any jurors who display conscious or subconscious racist beliefs. The directive stems from a case that resulted in the convictions of two black men imprisoned in 2012 for carjacking a luxury sedan. At their trial, one juror had revealed a subliminal and deeply-rooted, latent racial bias against African-Americans, said the appeals panel, which overturned the verdict and ordered new court proceedings for both men.Racial bias is repugnant to any notion of fairness or...

    Outraged protesters stood outside of the apartment complex where the state trooper who arrested Sandra Bland lives. The DPS officer is currently on desk duty but protesters say thats not enough. They say the investigation is moving too slow and they want the trooper not only fired but indicted. On a day when it felt like it couldnt get any hotter, Quanell X and protesters lit their own fire. I'm a speak frank to you, in that cops mind he was saying to himself who does the N-word think she is talking to me like this. And that's when he...

    Is Mexico adopting an old British practice from the colonial era? Is Donald Trump correct when he says Mexico is sending some of its criminals into the United States mixed in with otherwise law abiding immigrants? During the colonial period Britain cut the cost of operating jails by sentencing some of its criminals to penal transportation to the North American colonies. After the American Revolution transportation meant being sent to Australia or New Zealand. The practice was particularly common with Irish and Scottish criminals and is mentioned in some Irish folk songs

The news publication is reportedly seeking records about former Secretary of State Hillary Clintons schedules and her former top staffers.

    The Corner The one and only. You Should Be for Americans: Victims of Illegal-Alien Sanctuary Policies Tell Their Stories by Mark Krikorian July 21, 2015 7:39 PM @MarkSKrikorian The Senate Judiciary Committee held a hearing today featuring family members of Americans killed by illegal aliens. The witnesses told the stories of Danny Oliver, Grant Ronnebeck, Kathryn Steinle, Dennis McCann, and Josh Wilkerson all dead because federal, state, and local governments have abdicated their responsibility to protect American citizens from foreign criminals. The anti-borders activists were sensible enough not to disrupt the proceedings, as they have done so often before....

    Tuesday will mark five years since President Obamas signing of the Dodd-Frank law, the most sweeping rewrite of the countrys financial laws since the New Deal. Mr. Obama told the country that the legislation would lift our economy. The statute itself declared that it would end too big to fail and promote financial stability. None of that has come to pass. Too-big-to-fail institutions have not disappeared. Big banks are bigger, small banks are fewer, and the financial system is less stable. Meanwhile, the economy remains in the doldrums. Dodd-Frank was based on the premise that the financial crisis was the...

    Supporting Americas enemies abroad and criminals at home The modern-day progressives abiding hatred of the United States of America and the eternal principles for which it stands is what animates the Lefts efforts to cripple and destroy this one-of-a-kind nation. It is fair to say that support for Americas enemies abroad and criminals at home are the twin pillars of progressivism today. Since in the real world left-wing social engineering schemes inflict great damage on the human beings selected for experimentation, progressives most effective tactic is the smear, which they deploy day in, day out, when they run out of...

    The Mexican government announced that 7 officials have been charged in aiding and abetting the escape of cartel leader Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman. The Mexican AG's office would not name the officials charged, but how surprised would you be if they didn't include any higher-ups? The director of the prison where El Chapo escaped has been fired, but no word if he was involved in the escape plot. Guzman's escape last Saturday from a maximum security prison through a mile-long tunnel built into his cell was a profound embarrassment for President Enrique Pea Nieto, raising pressure on the government to...

    State and local sanctuary policies caused the release of more than 8,000 criminal alien offenders sought by ICE for deportation in 276 jurisdictions1 around the country over an eight-month period, according to ICE records obtained by the Center for Immigration Studies in a FOIA request.2 Sixty-three percent of the individuals freed by local authorities had prior criminal histories or were labeled a public safety concern at the time of their release. Nearly 1,900 of the released offenders subsequently were arrested for another crime within that eight-month period. ICE arrested approximately 750 of the recidivists, but just over 1,000 (60 percent)...

    SF Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi wants to tear down our borders and the walls of our prisons The hostility of the radical left-wing sheriff of San Francisco to Americas prison systemnot just to federal immigration lawmay have been a factor in the decision to release a Mexican illegal alien who went on to murder young Kate Steinle. Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi (pronounced: Meer-kah-ree-me) is taking heat for releasing Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez, a 45-year-old illegal alien with a second grade education who reportedly has seven felony convictions and has been deported from the U.S. five times. Federal officials had characterized the man who...
