    A recently released report on the H-1B program (for skilled nonimmigrant workers) indicates that in at least 40 percent of the jobs the employer gets a full-time (alien) worker for a $40,000 a year discount from actual prevailing wages.

    Now that the halfway point of Donald Trump’s first term in office has officially come and gone, the Washington media crew has been scrambling to find some way to commemorate the occasion, define the results of the first two years and make projections as to the next two. In nearly all cases, this means identifying some catchphrase to cast the administration in the worst light possible. That’s the theme we’re seeing from Philip Rucker at the Washington Post (among others) in what apparently passes for clever commentary these days. Trump ran for office on the premise that he would...

  • How things will go down if Ginsburg leaves the SCOTUS

    American Thinker ^ | 20 Jan, 2019 | Steve Grammatico
    Mueller, the wall impasse, the shutdown, the "postponement" of the SOTU all are skirmishes in the undeclared war on President Trump waged by Democrats, the Deep State, and the compliant media. A decisive battle will be enjoined if Ruth Bader Ginsburg dies or resigns this year. Nothing scares the left more than the prospect of Trump filling another seat on the SCOTUS with a young, fire-breathing constitutionalist who would join with Alito, Thomas, Gorsuch, and Kavanaugh to form a conservative bloc for the ages. Pelosi and Schumer are praying that Justice Ginsburg survives and remains on the bench until...

    When I taught U.S. History to my sixthgraders and we discussed the founding of our country, Im fairly certain I mentioned to these 12-year-olds that it was a pretty big deal at the time that we decided we would have no king.Wed have three co-equal branches of government.Legislative to make the laws.Judicial to interpret the laws. Executive to enforce the laws.It was on the final test.All my elementary students passed it.Its a test the Senate is failing.Senate leadership under Mitch McConnell would have us re-teach our students that there are actually only two branches of government left.

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and congressional Democrats are losing one big voice in their opposition to President Donald Trumps push for a border wall: The Washington Posts editorial board. WaPo noted in a Sunday editorial reasons why Pelosi should rebuke the presidents most recent offer to temporarily extend protections for the so-called Dreamers. But the paper eventually explained that taking the deal would ultimately help those who came here through the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

    Townhall.com ^ | January 20, 2020 | Jeff Crouere
    In his address to the nation, President Trump once again offered an olive branch to the Democrats. In exchange for $5.7 billion in funding for a border wall, he gave his support for a three-year extension of protection for the 700,000 immigrants who arrived in the country as children. This group was protected from deportation by former President Obama in his Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. His previous offers to negotiate and compromise have been rejected by Democrats, who are being held captive by their far-left wing, which supports open borders. The President may soon come to the...

    The legislation that the majority leader will bring to the floor this week would both reopen the remaining portions of the government, fund disaster relief, fund border security and address immigration issues that both Republicans and Democrats would like to address all in one bill, Don Stewart, McConnells deputy chief of staff, told the New York Times in an interview. McConnell aims to put pressure on Democrats who have said they will not negotiate with Trump on his wall until the government reopens. Stewart said the legislative package would include seven appropriation bills that would fund agencies that have...

    Did somebody hack the Washington Post website?That was the first thing that came to mind when I saw the title of this WaPo editorial. Shortly after Nancy Pelosi declared that President Trump’s offer of a deal yesterday was “a non-starter,” the newspaper’s editorial board led with the title, “Make a Deal. Save the Dreamers.”To be sure, the editorial goes to great lengths to include a barrage of insults to the President before getting to the meat of their argument. They ensure their liberal bona fides by declaring that he doesn’t deserve to be rewarded for “taking the government hostage”...

    President Donald Trump has signed into law the Frederick Douglass Act, a bill authorizing $430 million to combat human trafficking. The measure, which was introduced by Rep. Chris Smith (R-NJ), is designed to boost government efforts to prevent sex and labor trafficking and protect victims both nationally and internationally... The release also included a statement from Kenneth B. Morris Jr., the great-great-great-grandson of Douglass. "If my great ancestor were here today, I believe he would be driven to lead the struggle against contemporary forms of slavery," Morris stated.

    In a series of tweets, Trump chastised Democrats for dismissing his plan, and attempted to assuage immigration hard-liners who likened the administration's latest proposal to amnesty for immigrants already in the country illegally. "No, Amnesty is not a part of my offer," Trump tweeted. "It is a 3 year extension of DACA. Amnesty will be used only on a much bigger deal, whether on immigration or something else. Likewise there will be no big push to remove the 11,000,000 plus people who are here illegally-but be careful Nancy!"

    FULL TITLE: Muslim from Texas who joined the Islamic State: I saw some crucifixions. You know, thats just normal life there. Of course it was normal life in the Islamic State, because the Islamic State adhered scrupulously to Sharia within its domains. And crucifixion is a Sharia punishment, based on the Quran: Indeed, the penalty for those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger and strive upon earth corruption is none but that they be killed or crucified or that their hands and feet be cut off from opposite sides or that they be exiled from the land. That...

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announced he will take up legislation next week incorporating the deal President Trump outlined in a Saturday afternoon address . The Republicans move to bring the deal up for a vote will put political pressure on Democrats in both chambers, who through their leaders publicly rejected Trumps proposal Saturday afternoon. It would take 60 votes to advance the measure in the Senate, which means Republicans will need the support of seven Democrats to pass the measure, assuming no GOP lawmakers vote against it. McConnell said in a statement after Trumps announcement. With bipartisan cooperation, the...

    Fentanyl can strike anyone, at any age, on account of the unique method by which it can be absorbed:..... through contact with the skin. ...the quantity required for the average adult to overdose and die is just 3 milligrams. Smaller still the amount required to kill a child.

Additionally, according to the American College of Medical Toxicology, the use of alcohol-based sanitizer is both ineffective in removing fentanyl and may increase drug...

    It should now be inordinately clear to all, the Democrats, after all these decades of leftist lies and lip service, never had any intention whatsoever of protecting and securing our violent lawless southern border. And having upwards of 25 million illegals now in country, running through our streets from coast to coast, with all the crime, cost, blood and violence associated with it, proves beyond all doubt they completely support this decades long lawless invasion. Trump has said the Democrats are the party of crime. Once again, Trump is 100% correct. What is motivating these people to support this coast...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Saturday she will not take up President Trumps offer to trade off $5.7 billion in wall funding for a three-year extension of a program providing legal status for "Dreamers," who illegally went to the U.S. as children. Pelosi, D-Calif., issued a statement just before Trumps announcement, calling the plan a compilation of several previously rejected initiatives, each of which is unacceptable and in total, do not represent a good faith effort to restore certainty to peoples lives. Pelosi said the proposal does not achieve what Democrats have long sought for the "Dreamers," which is a...

    Welcome to day twenty eight day of the U.S. Federal government shutdown. Normally Federal Government shut downs are a game of chicken where Congressional (usually GOP) and Executive Branch (usually Democrat) politicians are playing a game of virtue signaling to their political base until the accumulated toxic waste of bad media and public protest let the Congress compromise on spending more money with limited blow back in their next partisan primary. This time is very different, and its far more than just a matter of political parties changing sides in government. President Trump is working to a Xanatos Gambit political-media...
