  • U.S. Citizen Born Abroad: Consular Record “Is My Birth Certificate”

    In the midst of questions arising as to why presidential candidate Ted Cruz, U.S. Senator from Texas, has produced no documentation to support his claim that he was born a U.S. citizen in Canada in December 1970, author, former congressional candidate and former Hawaii resident Miki Booth provided a copy of her birth certificate, prepared by the American consulate in Sapporo, Japan, indicating that she was a U.S. citizen born abroad. The certificate was sent to The Post & Email by surface mail and returned in the same manner. Booth was born on December 18, 1949 in Sapporo, Hokkaido, Japan...

  • Predictions on Sen. Ted Cruz's Final Delegate Total Count --- 6 6 6

    As it stands now Sen. Cruz has 550 hard delegates and 15 soft delegates. He will pick up 20 here, and 27 there, and maybe even 100+ delegates. It is highly foreseeable that Ted reaches 666 delegates. Sadly, many are fearful that Ted may be 'locked in' or cursed at 666- the "Mark of the Beast." This can not be Ted's fate for 2016. Republican delegates must be in agreement to raise him above 666. An uncommitted delegate must be persuaded to vote for Ted and carry him beyond 'the mark' to 667.

    New Zeal Shining the Torch For Liberty ^ | March 30, 2016 | Trevor Louden
    Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump has hired a Russian adviser with ties to a former Eastern Bloc oligarch and Russian intelligence infiltrated energy company, Gazprom. The hire in question is a globe-trotting 44 year-old American investment banker Carter Page, who has built a career on deals with Russia and its state-run gas company. Page’s resume includes a stint in the U.S. Naval Academy, working in arms control at the Pentagon and a fellowship at the Council on Foreign Relations in New York. Over his career, he’s earned three graduate degrees, including a PhD from SOAS University of London. In 2000,...

    Over the last several months, when I tuned into Glenn’s show, I would find myself becoming exasperated with what seemed to be his Constitutional contradictions. It’s then that I began to realize that of ALL the controversial things Glenn has brought forward, Glenn has never really taken up the issue of Obama’s ineligibility. Why not? Isn’t that a key tenet of the Constitution? David Barton must surely have explained to Glenn why the founding authors included that phrase “Natural Born Citizen” in the Article’s first Section. So that created some real cognitive dissonance for me. I just couldn’t seem to...

    I don’t know how I managed for so long to put off reading Allan Bloom’s 1986 The Closing of the American Mind.. I’m only through the Preface and Introduction, and the condition of American higher education he described thirty years ago is chilling. I might not read any further. The young people of that era are now the heads of various university departments and occupy high positions in government including the presidency. Today, the students of Bloom’s book coddle all the dangerous nonsense we’ve recently seen in the form of moral relativism, Black Lives Matter, White Privilege, LGBT baloney, and...

    GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump's emphasis that the guiding principle for foreign policy under his administration will be "America first" has made some of our European allies nervous. Germany's foreign minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier characterized Trump's stance as "arrogant and selfish. To put America first is offensive to my ears. He is denying our equality and our right to participate in determining what America must do to protect all of our mutual interests. If this kind of self-centered viewpoint had prevailed in an earlier era my country and perhaps all of western Europe would today be run by fascists or communists."...

    Flogging the straw man. I cannot offer enough praise of Jonah Goldberg as a writer, nor can I recommend his weekly G-File report highly enough. Like most at National Review these days, Goldberg is strident in his opposition to Donald Trump, and he makes some of the most compelling arguments against Trump on a consistent basis. Where Goldberg and I disagree, of course, is not on our candidate of choice (as far as I can tell we’re both for Ted Cruz), but on the question of what to do if Trump does indeed win the nomination. I’ve said, and I’ll...

    The Market-Ticker ^ | May 2, 2016 | Karl Denninger
    Cruz is at it again. In two states over the weekend Cruz's "ground game" steamrolled state conventions following losses in those state primaries, putting overwhelming majorities of delegates on the state slate that support Ted. In Arizona, for example, Cruz lost by roughly half compared to Trump; 47% to 25% (Kascich got 10% and the rest went to candidates who have dropped out.) How does a political party manage to justify a delegate split that doesn't look like 47-25-10, roughly? Oh sure, such a result might be "legal" under the rules of the party, and further on the first ballot...

    Mr. Trump may be a lot of positive and negative things, but when it comes to the consequences of letting bad people into our country, he has it exactly right Early on in Donald Trump’s campaign for President in the 2016 race he made a comment that claimed, “the worst elements in Mexico are being pushed into the United States by the Mexican government.” According to Mr. Trump, Mexico is “sending people that have lots of problems” to America including rapists, drug runners, and other criminals. Immediately, there was blow-back, and The Donald claimed the media was distorting what he...

    For holding so-called conservatives accountable to actually do what they say they're going to do It was attention-getting when John Boehner referred to Ted Cruz last week as “Lucifer in the flesh” (and surely that was the point), but it’s hardly breaking news that Cruz is unpopular among his colleagues in Washington. The political and chattering classes often cite this as a reason he is not fit for the presidency, although for many of us it’s far from clear that this is actually a mark against him. And give Cruz credit: He doesn’t grovel or squirm when people aim stuff...

    As Blue as New York State is, its Senate is still controlled by the Republicans. In New York City, however there is no Republican presence except for three City Council seats. Consequently the City’s scandals are 100% owned by Democrats. After a thorough investigation, Preet Bharara, a local US Attorney, succeeded in convicting and jailing both the Democrat Speaker of the State Assembly and the Republican Leader of the State Senate. Immediately afterward Bharara announced he was going after New York’s Democrat Governor, Andrew Cuomo. Then a strange thing happened: Bharara announced that he would not be going further on...

    Sunday, May 01, 2016 Big Green's Dirty Power Big Green is big business. The global renewable energy market is estimated at over $600 billion. Obama’s stimulus boondoggle alone blew around $50 billion on green energy. Annual spending is somewhere around $39 billion a year and that’s just the tip of the Big Green iceberg. California carbon auctions are climbing into the billions. And the endgame is a national and a global carbon tax that will allow Big Green to take money out of the pockets of every single human being. Environmentalism isn’t a hippie with a cardboard sign.

    1. Younger people tend to have more liberal views. This is not a permanent state of being. Asking a 20 year old who has never held a job about capitalism is not a good use of anyone's time. Asking him ten years later whether he thinks he pays too much in taxes will be far more meaningful. Polls of younger people tend to produce scary results. This isn't a new phenomenon. 2. Using "millennial" as a political punching bag is a bad idea. We're talking about people who were born over a 20 year period. Plenty of them hold jobs...

He said Hillary Clinton has nothing but the “Women’s card.” “If Hillary Clinton was a man she would be at 5%.” These remarks were calculated and carefully delivered to compel his lazy media enemies to listen to him. Sure that he had their attention Trump added, “And women don’t like her.” The “uproar” that followed came mostly from Clinton herself who tried in vain to turn this into another...

    A basic truism of economics is that if you subsidize something you get more of it and if you penalize something you get less What we learn before we turn eighteen becomes the common sense of our later life. Just as the vast majority of people after careful consideration of all the candidates and the issues end up voting for the same party as their parents so too most people can never break free of the paradigm impressed upon them as they grew up. Many people repeat the time worn phrase, “Those who don’t learn from History are doomed to...

    Get ready America, liberals are on the rampage After decades of unchecked illegal immigration and liberal policies, conservatives are in a distinct minority in California. It is most definitely the case in the California Assembly. On Thursday, state lawmakers rejected a harmless resolution to honor legendary actor John Wayne, a native son of California. Wayne grew up in Glendale, California and later became a beloved actor known for his tough guy roles in dozens of popular movies. In fact, he won an Oscar for his performance in “True Grit.”

    In the coming days, I will shed light on the players and their motivations behind this latest California Water War Water wars are historic undertakings in California. Countless other publications have written recently about the proposed ballot measure that would redirect High Speed Rail bond money for water-related projects and prioritize the use of water, But what makes this story interesting is the coalition of opponents, their motivations and techniques being employed. The Committee to Stop the Special Interest Water Grab, led by David Guy, president of the Northern California Water Association, Tim Johnson, president of the California Rice Commission...

    Bludgeon of political correctness has taught us that we are not to ask any such questions of the emerging, politically correct, status quo. The former Democratic senator from Pennsylvania, Harris Wofford, has announced his plans to marry his boyfriend, Matthew Charlton, this weekend. To most anyone over 30 years old (who might not have heard about this engagement) the news should naturally still knock a bit of the wind out of you. When I see an announcement of marriage where both the names of the intended are male (or female), I am old enough, and have sufficient common sense to...

    The generosity of Danes opening their borders to immigrants from Muslim countries has been repaid by an astounding surge in crimes committed by these foreigners. Though these foreigners make up only 8% of the country's population they account for over 75% of the crimes committed and over 80% of those drawing unemployment benefits from the government. Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders, who has frequently offered up Denmark as an exemplar of the kind of social policies we ought to adopt in the United States, professed himself "not the least bit disturbed by these results. Compared to the places these...
  • Will Rioters Hand the Election to Trump?

    I think Donald Trump likely will defeat Hillary Clinton, simply because she is such a terrible candidate. But if the current trend toward anti-Trump riots and violence continues, Trump could win going away. Last night in Orange County, Trump addressed a crowd of thousands. Anti-Trump demonstrators, some waving Mexican flags, attacked policemen and bystanders. The liberal Los Angeles Times reports: Hundreds of demonstrators filled the street outside the Orange County amphitheater where Donald Trump held a rally Thursday night, stomping on cars, hurling rocks at motorists and forcefully [!] declaring their opposition to the Republican presidential candidate. Traffic came to...

    On Friday's New Day on CNN, during a discussion of violent protests outside a Donald Trump rally in Costa Mesa, California, after conservative CNN political commentator Matt Lewis suggested that they might be "leftist agitators" who are effectively boosting Trump's campaign with their behavior, co-host Chris Cuomo defused his characterization by asserting that many of them "were just dissatisfied citizens who were taking out their disatisfaction the wrong way in anger and destroying a lot of property there."

    It took awhile to notice. Yes, I've been posting to articles for a long time. Yet, today I noticed a mild type of propaganda as I posted a reply to an article.Each time that I typed koran my computer prompted me to capitalize it. However when I typed Bible, un-capitalized, there was no such prompt. Why? Then I typed islam and Christian as a test and there it was again, 'the prompt'. A prompt was given to capitalize islam but no such prompt for Christian. This.......must stop. A demand to hold the so-called religion of islam above the true religion...

    This is the second in a series of essays on the duty of Christians in civic affairs, adapted from Kevin Kookogey’s weekly radio address and podcasts at advancingchurch.com. This week we begin our examination of questions from listeners. 1. Christians should be informed about politics, but should they really determine which political side is correct? How can one claim that it is important for Christians to be informed about politics if the conclusion one draws from the information is deemed irrelevant or off limits? It is, after all, conclusions that lead one to act and to act is to take...

    The Resurgent ^ | April 29, 2016 | Erick Erickson
    There were several events yesterday that suggest to me the winds have shifted in Ted Cruz’s favor since he named Carly Fiorina his running mate. First, John Boehner had a complete and utter meltdown about Ted Cruz yesterday. He referred to Cruz as both an S.O.B. and Lucifer. Then Peter King, the noxious congressman from New York, came out and declared Cruz worse than the devil. He was followed up by former senator Judd Gregg who declared he would rather Trump than Cruz, even though he is a Kasich guy. The fact that . In fact, more polling out of...
