    landed in the Facebook gulag when I tried to post our daily Bible verse. ... Now before you call up the preacher had put me on the church prayer list – let me assure the posting was neither unseemly nor ungentlemanly. Nevertheless, it caused great consternation and angst among Facebook’s left-wing censors. Following is the egregious text: “Rancher Bundy should’ve told the feds that those were Mexican cows – who came across the border illegally to seek better grazing opportunities. It was an act of love.” Thousands of you posted comments and many more shared that message. It’s now gone...
  • Trey Gowdy Believes Barack Obama Is Systematically Dismantling Our Nation’s Laws

    Earlier this week, Sen. Jeff Sessions said that the president was deliberately dismantling our law enforcement system. Megyn Kelly of Fox News asked Rep. Gowdy about that. Rep. Trey Gowdy, a former prosecutor, agrees with Sen. Sessions that the president is systematically dismantling the nation’s laws, but he believes it is to win elections not to pursue an agenda. They [the administration] do however fundamentally view their role differently, he added. Attorney General Eric Holder recently claimed that illegal immigration is a civil right, if that is so, Gowdy says, that is like saying you and I have the right...

    A recent trend along Texas' southern border involves illegal immigrants flocking to the U.S., turning themselves in to Border Patrol officials, and then expressing credible fear for their lives. Word has apparently spread throughout Central America that immigrants who take these steps have a good chance of obtaining asylum in the U.S. The newly popular practice is straining federal resources, causing "detention facilities, asylum offices and immigration courts [to be] overwhelmed," according to the New York Times.

    The Congressional Hispanic Caucus is done being patient. There was a time when an Oval Office meeting with President Obama could buy their silence. But no longer. On Friday April 4, the CHC sent a six-page letter to Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson demanding that Obama use "all legal means available" to "suspend, delay, or dispense with the deportations of immigrants who would qualify for legal status and protection under S. 744." At no point does the letter bother to call for new legislation or the passage of S.744. Instead, the CHC just demands that Obama enforce current...

    Common Core State Standards (CCSS) are not “state standards.” They are nationalized, state-run standards so that every student in a given grade, in every state will be learning the same thing at the same time. Promoters of the Standards, Achieve, Inc., Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) and National Governors Organization (NGO) would like you to believe that the Standards had input from people in every state. The reality is that they were developed by a 24-member team, with David Coleman, from Student Achievement Partners (SAP), considered to be the chief architect of CCSS. (He is now head of...

The reality being far from the false narrative of "kids throwing pebbles," the life-threatening rock attacks against Border Patrol agents often occur in remote areas when a solitary Border Patrol agent may be up to a 90-minute drive from their nearest backup. The solitary Border Patrol agent's radio often does not work due to insufficient communications...

Lead litigator for the case, former DOJ attorney J.

Detective Jon Seeber, of the Onondaga County Sheriff's Office, said An B. Zhang was driving the box truck north on the parkway when his truck hit the railroad bridge and wedged under it. Zhang, 40, of San Jose, Calif., speaks Mandarin and could not understand the warnings about the low bridge quickly enough, Seeber said. No one was injured.

The GOP establishment has spent a great deal of effort over the last decade pushing for amnesty under the guise of “comprehensive immigration reform”.

    The transformation of America is proceeding apace this week, with the Obama Administration clearing the way for banks to legally get involved with drug dealers. The Justice Department and Treasury Department on Friday issued guidelines for banks and other financial service companies to get involved with marijuana growers and distributors in states where the drug is legal. Washington and Colorado in January became the first two states to completely legalize pot. Other states, such as California, have legalized "medicinal" marijuana. The new guidelines were intended to allow banks to serve pot distributors while still ensuring the legitimacy of the businesses...

    DENVER — Bankers should beware of the Obama administration’s newly issued green light for banks doing business with the legal marijuana industry, according to the head of the Colorado Bankers Association. Memos released Friday by the Justice Department and Treasury Department’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network were intended to give banks leeway to open accounts for marijuana businesses in states like Colorado and Washington that have legalized retail pot. Instead, the guidance “only reinforces and reiterates that banks can be prosecuted for providing accounts to marijuana related businesses,” said the CBA in a Friday statement. “In fact, it is even stronger...

Nearly half of immigrants facing deportation have won their cases in the last year, according to the Transactional Records Clearinghouse at Syracuse University, which collects and studies federal prosecution records. The government has been losing more deportation cases each year since 2009. The analysis published Thursday does not say how many deportation cases Immigration and Customs Enforcement, whose lawyers represent the government in immigration courts, successfully appealed to the Board of Immigration Appeals. The government can appeal immigration court rulings to the...

A new, more aggressive campaign kicks off Tuesday, when these groups say they will begin confronting Republican lawmakers at public appearances, congressional hearings and events back in home districts. The goal: Shame Republicans in swing districts into taking up the issue — or make them pay at the ballot box in November.

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Days after House Republicans unveiled a roadmap for an overhaul of the nation's broken immigration system, one of its backers said legislation is unlikely to pass during this election year. Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., said distrust of President Barack Obama runs so deep in the Republican caucus that he's skeptical the GOP-led House would pass any immigration measure. He said a plan that puts security first could only pass if lawmakers believe the administration would enforce it — an unlikely prospect given Republicans' deep opposition to Obama. "This isn't a trust-but-verify, this is a verify-then-trust approach," Ryan...

To repeat what's been said before - "All that's necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men and women to do nothing". Of course, it won't be easy, because Obama's boot-licking media lackeys are doing a pretty good job of intimidating most of the populace. And anybody that does criticize this clown will automatically be smeared as...

    Del. Bob Marshall, R-Manassas, has introduced a bill that would give farmers and landowners’ property rights remedies against local zoning laws.

The bill also tackles other issues such as the constitutional rights of farmers. HB1219 says that local governments that violate constitutional rights through zoning must pay their victims the amount of the fines they sought to impose and the actual damages, including attorney fees. The bill also allows the Virginia Attorney General to...

The claim is, of course, preposterous on its face. Under this reasoning, every immigrant currently living in the U.S. on a temporary visa has the right to refuse to leave when that visa expires. And every household in a foreign country has the right to enter the U.S. illegally tomorrow and demand the Obama administration’s amnesty for “DREAMers” and their relatives.

    The head of Immigration and Customs Enforcement defended the role of federal agents in transporting illegal immigrant children after a federal judge complained they were hand-delivering smuggled kids to parents in the United States. “While the court’s comments did not relate specifically to ICE, it is clear that the transportation of unaccompanied children (UAC) by ICE personnel is appropriate and legal,” acting Director John Sandweg wrote in a brief email obtained by FoxNews.com. The email was sent Monday and addressed to “all ICE employees.”

    This is what the left has believed all along. Nancy Pelosi should be praised for having the courage to come right out and say it. Nancy Pelosi recently told Telemundo that violations of immigration law should no longer have any consequences: “Our view of the law is that it — if somebody is here without sufficient documentation, that is not reason for deportation.” This wasn’t just a verbal flub; her spokesman reiterated the point, saying her comment was merely “a restatement of her long-held belief that being an undocumented immigrant is not a basis for deportation.”

    Here’s a good one; a Mexican man who came to the U.S. illegally as a youth is suing a state agency for discrimination because it refuses to hire him for using a fake Social Security to work for nearly a decade. It’s as if a bold and extremely confident class of illegal alien has emerged in the last few years. The case comes out of northern California and it involves a naturalized American citizen who could easily serve as the poster child for President Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), a special amnesty for youths brought to the U.S....

    The “good moral character” of President Obama’s illegal immigrant uncle, arrested for drunken driving in 2011, has earned him legal U.S. residency and a chance to apply for American citizenship, a judge has decided. This is a classic example of the benefits of having friends—in this case a nephew—in high places. Onyango “Omar” Obama had lived illegally in the U.S. for decades when he got busted driving drunk in Framingham Massachusetts. At the time of his arrest Uncle Onyango had already been deported yet continued to live and work in the Boston area and he had a valid Massachusetts drivers’...

    Most presidents have politically troublesome relatives: Jimmy Carter had colorful brother Billy, Bill Clinton had brother Roger, and the George Bushes had son/brother Neil, who was involved in both the savings-and-loan scandal of the 1980s and Asian "sex romps" that emerged in a messy 2003 divorce. Obama has a passel of half-siblings, but his requisite nettlesome relative may turn out to be an uncle, Onyango (Omar) Obama.

    For the third time this year, one of LeRoy Carhart’s abortion patients were rushed to Shady Grove Hospital (SGH) in Maryland for emergency treatment after a late-term abortion.

    An illegal alien who sneaked across the porous U.S./Mexico border from El Salvador to go on an MS-13 gang crime spree and murder rampage has been sentenced to life in a U.S. prison. Carlos Ortega (aka “Silencio”), a former MS-13 leader (Sitios Locos Salvatruchas clique of La Mara Salvatrucha), was sentence to life in prison after his March 21, 2013 convictions for racketeering, racketeering conspiracy, murder, assault with dangerous weapons, and related firearms and conspiracy offenses, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office. Ortega was a member of MS-13 in El Salvador. He illegally entered the U.S. and embarked on what...
  • Why are so many Obamacare alledged "Enrollees" from California?

    Marketwatch calls the week "rough" for Obamacare as the administration reported only 100,000 people "picked a marketplace plan" in the first month of operations. Of course anyone who prefers not to be deceived must parse every syllable of every word uttered by these pathological liars of impeachable character. When the elected fraud in the White House has his appointed scoundrels say "picked a marketplace plan", intelligent Americans MUST assume the swindler wants you to assume that "picked" means the same as enrolled. Where the intelligence comes into play is that you must also realize that they are deliberately... (continued)

    Obama said Thursday that what’s good for illegal immigrants is also good for people who are losing their health insurance because of Obamacare, saying he’ll use prosecutorial discretion to let companies continue to offer health plans that violate his law. It’s the latest example of the White House trying to work around Congress and instead take action on its own, and in this case it comes as Mr. Obama seeks to stop a wholesale abandonment of his health law by Democrats who have watched the rocky rollout. ... That immigration policy, known by its acronym of DACA, has proved controversial...
