  • Can Trump End Birthright Citizenship by Executive Order? (No)

    National Review ^ | October 30, 2018 | Andrew C. McCarthy
    On substance, I believe President Trump is right on birthright citizenship — the 14th Amendment does not require it. I do not believe, however, that the president may change the interpretation of the 14th Amendment, which has been in effect for decades, by executive order, as he is reportedly contemplating. My friend John Eastman explained why the 14th Amendment does not mandate birthright citizenship in this 2015 New York Times op-ed. In a nutshell, the Amendment states: “All persons born or naturalized in the United States and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of...

    SPARTANBURG, SC A South Carolina man stepped outside of his apartment to urinate, in view of his neighbors, because his mother was using the bathroom in their home at the time, according to police. Neighbors got an eyeful Wednesday afternoon at an apartment complex on West Centennial Drive in Spartanburg, according to a Spartanburg Police Department incident report. When an officer arrived, a man approached him, apologizing and telling the officer that he was “in the wrong and did something bad.” The man, later identified as Kevin Bivings, told the officer he went onto the back porch of his apartment...

    President Donald Trump’s budget chief, Mick Mulvaney, expressed confidence to Republican donors Saturday that the party would overcome a Democratic “movement of hate” in November, but he acknowledged Republicans could lose races where they have nominated candidates who are not seen as “likable” enough, like Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas.
  • Potential Supreme Court Nominee Brett Kavanaugh Has A Troubling Record On Religious Liberty

    The Federalist ^ | July 5, 2018 | anonymous
    If Kavanaugh's views were adopted by other courts, then other frivolous claims attacking religion in the public square would have a better chance of being heard in federal courts. Ed Whelan of Bench Memos yesterday defended Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s jurisprudence in a host of areas, including religious liberty. I have great respect for Whelan. I have long been an admirer of his blog, checking it daily. But I fear he may be either working too hastily under time pressure, or blinded by his friendship with Kavanaugh, and in any case is mistaken in his defense of the judge’s religious-liberty jurisprudence....

    In a dramatic about face, the Trump administration will stop prosecuting migrant parents who cross the border illegally with children, a new report said Thursday... “We’re suspending prosecutions of adults who are members of family units until ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) can accelerate resource capability to allow us to maintain custody,”

"You can quote me saying that Donald Trump has turned into the gun grabber in chief," said Gun Owners of America legislative counsel Michael Hammond.

    Fox News Opinion Section ^ | 7/21/2017 | Robert Charles
    Despite his recent criticism of Attorney General Jeff Sessions for recusing himself from the “Russia collusion” investigation of the Trump campaign, President Trump should thank Sessions for stepping aside from the probe that is drawing breathless media coverage almost every day. Why? Because any investigation overseen by Sessions that cleared Trump and his campaign of wrongdoing would immediately draw criticism, due to Sessions’ role as an important surrogate and close adviser to candidate Trump. Democrats would complain that no matter how little solid evidence was found, Sessions would be acting improperly in clearing Team Trump because he was hopelessly biased...

    For much of his nearly year-old presidential campaign, Donald Trump bragged about his ability to best his Republican rivals without even hiring a pollster. But after quietly hiring his first high-profile data analyst, The New York Times reported last week that the real-estate magnate is considering bringing on more pollsters to help him with a bold goal: Winning the Democratic-heavy state of New York. While the Clinton campaign sees a map of 10 to 12 battleground states, including some Rust Belt states like Ohio and Pennsylvania, Trump's campaign claims he can be competitive in 15 states. That includes electorally rich,...

    An instructor at Donald Trump's Trump Entrepreneur Initiative—originally known as Trump University—once offered advice about how illegal immigrants can purchase homes in the United States. Real estate agent Tina Merritt wrote a blog post for the Trump Blog in April 2010 titled "Can an Illegal Immigrant Buy a Home in the United States?" Merritt explained that the answer was "yes." Here's an excerpt from the archived blog post: First of all, you do not have to have a social security number to buy or sell a home in the U.S. Some mortgage lenders require one; however, there is not...
  • Transgender pageant winner loses her title

    THE Scottish winner of a national transgender beauty pageant has had her title stripped from her as she is “not transgender enough”. Jai Dara Latto, from Walkerburn, Peeblesshire, was named Miss Transgender UK in a ceremony in London last September. But Rachael Bailey, who runs the pageant, has now removed Jai’s title and is set to crown another beauty queen, Daisy Bell, the winner after seeing video footage she claims proves Ms Latto is not living as a woman full-time. The video, which was taken as part of a documentary about the pageant to be screened online by BBC3 next...
  • FactChecking the Ninth GOP Debate

    Republican candidates misrepresent the facts on the Supreme Court, immigration, abortion and other issues. They repeated several false and misleading claims, and made some new ones, too. Sen. Ted Cruz claimed that "we have 80 years of precedent of not confirming Supreme Court justices in an election year." That's wrong. Justice Anthony Kennedy was confirmed in 1988, an election year. Businessman Donald Trump called Cruz the "single biggest liar" for saying Trump "supports federal taxpayer funding for Planned Parenthood." But Trump did leave open the possibility of funding some aspects before later saying he wouldn't support funding as long as...

    ".....Of course,Trump doesn't drink. Neither did W. The want-to-have-a-beer-with metric is metaphorical in nature.It's more a measure of the voter's own id and imagination than of the candidate's likely behavior if thrown into a prolonged,casual social interaction with an unknown citizen.(A 2005 story in the Onion was titled "Long-Awaited Beer With Bush Really Awkward,Voter Reports."Noting the poll numbers on the beer question,the story envisions W. tippling an O'Doul's with a blue-collar Pennsylvanian and failing to connect on any level.)Still,knocking one back with a candidate appears to be an activity voters like to ponder.Consider this January message thread on the conservative...

    Before my fellow conservatives jump immediately to defend Candidate Carson, I would ask that they read the following short column. Some years ago, I became aware of the extraordinary and remarkable career of Dr. Benjamin Carson via the 2009 movie "Gifted Hands" ,a film in which Cuba Gooding, Jr. portrayed the doctor. I even talked about him to my friend and colleague Laurie Roth who, subsequently, interviewed him on her Radio show. Dr. Carson seemed to be an honorable man, conservative and true to his word. However, since he officially began his campaign for the position of POTUS, something appears...

    We Had a Democracy Once, But You Crushed Itby Russell Mokhiber and Robert WeissmanDissident Voice August 9, 2003 In Thursday's Washington Post, Condoleeza Rice, the President's NationalSecurity Advisor, writes the following: "Our task is to work with those in the Middle East who seek progress toward greater democracy, tolerance, prosperity and freedom. As President Bush said in February, ‘The world has a clear interest in the spread of democratic values, because stable and free nations do not breed ideologies of murder. They encourage the peaceful pursuit of a better life.'" Now, if we only had a nickel for every time Bush, or...

    The Democratic Party in Texas filed a lawsuit today demanding a statewide recount. Congressman John Conyers (D-MI), and Barney Frank (D-MA) joined with other national Democratic figures in calling for a closer look at the vote tally in Texas. "Something just doesn't seem right," said Democratic Representative Henry Waxman. "There are still provisional ballots to be counted, as well as overseas ballots, and spoiled ballots. Bush only won the state by 1,700,000 votes, so who knows what the final result might be?" MoveOn.Org posted the following on their popular 527 website: "There are reports that Bush got far more votes...
