    A New Mexico town recently joined a growing movement of local governments that are passing measures to support unborn babies’ right to life. On Tuesday, the Kirtland Town Council voted to take a stand for life when it passed “A Resolution In Support of the Unborn,” the Albuquerque Journal reports. Mayor Mark Duncan proposed the measure partly in response to Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham, who supports abortion on demand, according to the report. Earlier this year, Grisham joined abortion activists in lobbying for a radical pro-abortion bill that would have allowed abortions for basically any reason up to birth in...

    WASHINGTON — A bare majority of the U.S. Supreme Court appeared likely Tuesday to let the Trump administration follow through on its plan to shut down DACA, the federal program that has allowed nearly 800,000 young people, known as dreamers, to avoid deportation and remain in the U.S. With hundreds of DACA supporters rallying outside — so many that police shut down the street in front of the Supreme Court — the justices heard nearly an hour and a half of oral arguments. Based on their questions, it appeared that the court's five conservatives were inclined to rule that the...

    Mexico has made an unspecified number of arrests over last week’s massacre of three women and six children of dual U.S-Mexican nationality in the north of the country, Security Minister Alfonso Durazo said on Monday. “There have been arrests, but it’s not up to us to give information,” Durazo told reporters in Mexico City. The women and children from families of U.S. Mormon origin who settled in Mexico decades ago were killed last Monday on a remote dirt road in the state of Sonora by suspected drug cartel gunmen, sparking outrage and condemnation in the United States. Durazo said that...

  • Bishops Stage Pro-Immigration Border Mass in Texas..(“there is no ‘us’ and ‘them.’”)

    Bishops from the U.S. and Mexico held a highly political Mass at the border separating their two countries on Saturday morning, insisting in a statement that “there is no ‘us’ and ‘them.’”....... Last month, Bishop Seitz wrote a searing “pastoral letter” denouncing President Trump’s border wall as a “monument to hate” and a symbol of exclusion and racism. “Borders, in the spirit of the Eucharist, exist not to separate and divide, but to identify and complement one another.” “The wall deepens racially charged perceptions of how we understand the border as well as Mexicans and migrants. It extends racist talk...

    PICTURE: BLAKE WILLIAMS To you anti-America sonsabltches, at Reddit, without Love: Blake Williams [1958-2017] was a close friend. Blake was Native American, conservative, and patriotic. He was a Trumper. He was a religious man. This is not his obituary, but he recently passed away—suddenly, and unexpectedly—at the age of just 59. Blake was a famous New Mexico radio personality. He lived on a ranch with 10 pets and horses. When I last saw him for lunch he was driving an old pickup truck with cracked windshield and hay in the back. He wore a black cowboy hat, white canvas duster,...

    Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., faced criticism Wednesday after voting "present" on a House resolution to formally recognize the mass killings of Armenians by Ottoman Turks as a genocide. The measure, H.Res.296, passed the chamber by an overwhelming 405-to-11 margin, representing a forceful rebuke to Turkey following the NATO ally's recent incursion against the Kurds along the Turkish-Syrian border. Two other House members also voted "present" with Omar: fellow Democrat Eddie Bernice Johnson of Texas, and one Republican, Paul Gosar of Arizona. But it was Omar's vote that drew the dismay of Armenian advocacy groups and political organizations. Omar's "votes and...

    Democrat legislators have drafted a bill to import at least 50,000 “climate refugees” per year despite the damaging impact on Americans’ wages and rents. “America will continue to stand tall as a safe haven for immigrants,” declared Rep. Nydia Velázquez (D-NY), who was born in Puerto Rico and chairs the House Committee on Small Business. She said: Despite this Administration’s efforts to strip the world’s most vulnerable populations of refuge … this legislation will not only reaffirm our nation’s longstanding role as a home to those fleeing conflict and disasters, but it will also update it to reflect changes to...

    Ah, what are the future Extinction Rebellion members in New Mexico supposed to do? Teens who consider themselves to be climate activists are now on the horns of a dilemma. After Democrats managed to flip the state blue in the last elections, their new liberal governor, Michelle Lujan Grisham, began pushing through all sorts of proposals. In addition to gun control and marijuana decriminalization, Grisham decided that all of the students in the state should get a free education at both two and four-year state colleges. What’s not to like, right?Well, according to some teen activists, there’s still a...
  • New Mexico works ‘proactively’ with oil and gas after earthquakes tied to fracking in West Texas

    Hydraulic fracturing could be responsible for an increase in earthquakes in the Permian Basin in West Texas, as oil and gas operations increase during a boom in the region. A study published Tuesday by the University of Texas at Austin suggested the practice, known as fracking, could be linked to earthquakes in the region just across the state border to southeast New Mexico where oil and gas operations also increased dramatically in recent years. Research targeted the Delaware Basin, on the western side of the Permian in Texas and New Mexico which now produces more than 5 million barrels of...

    President Trump said that in addition to border wall construction in New Mexico and Texas, “We’re building a wall in Colorado.” Speaking in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, at the Shale Insight Conference on Wednesday, Trump appeared to flub his geography when it comes to the U.S.-Mexico border. “We’re building a wall on the border of New Mexico, and we’re building a wall in Colorado. We’re building a beautiful wall. A big one that really works, that you can’t get over, you can’t get under. And we’re building a wall in Texas,” Trump said. “We’re not building a wall in Kansas, but they...

    CNN is upset because President Donald Trump's border control policies are working so well thanks in large part to the cooperation of the Mexican government. And it is that cooperation with Mexico that also irks Univision anchor Jorge Ramos from whom it is obvious CNN got many of their talking points. Oddly enough, however, CNN while being upset with Mexico, also concedes that Trump's border policies are working well. You can see that suprising concession in the very title of their Sunday story by Catherine Shoichet and Natalie Gallón (with talking points lifted from Jorge Ramos), "Why some say Mexico already...

    Finally, some good news from Washington. That doesn't happen very often. Over the weekend, the Trump administration announced plans to withdraw the remaining American troops that are still stationed in Northern Syria. Of countless decisions Donald Trump has announced via Twitter, you'd think this would be the least controversial of all. There's no reason for Americans to remain in Syria. ISIS no longer controls the cities there. We have no plans to overthrow the Assad government either. So, there's no longer a mission, and yet Syria remains a dangerous place. Five Americans have been killed there just this year, and...

    Peerless Technologies Corp., an Ohio defense and tech company that quietly came to Albuquerque earlier this year, is wrapping up a local expansion that brought around two dozen jobs and hopes for more in the future. The hiring push came as a result of two Air Force contract wins, according to Senior Vice President Julie Clark. One of those deals is an $18.5 million contract for engineering and technical services to support the integration of the B61-12 nuclear bomb, according to the Dayton Business Journal, our sister company. That project is slated for completion in 2024. Peerless has hired around...

    In what appears to have been a routine patrol, 30 members of Mexico's National Guard were caught off guard and ambushed from an unsuspecting local house. After repelling the initial attack, authorities soon discovered Ovidio Guzmán López, son of "El Chapo" and suspected co-leader of the Sinaloa Cartel, hiding inside the home. Chaos quickly ensued as gunmen blocked streets with burning vehicles. The scenes that unfolded were reminiscent of a war zone.
  • Congress fails again to stop Trump from using military money for his border wall

    Congress fell short Thursday in its second attempt to end the national emergency President Donald Trump declared to secure money for his proposed border wall. Both chambers of Congress have passed measures to block Trump’s declaration twice since the president took the step in March, prompting two vetoes. Lawmakers failed to override the second veto Thursday as the GOP-held Senate could not muster the two-thirds majority needed. The chamber voted by a 53-36 margin to end the emergency. Ten Republicans voted with Democrats in supporting the resolution. Democrats and some Republicans have accused the president of overreaching and disregarding Congress’...

    President Trump’s reelection campaign says it is hiring staff and opening field offices in Minnesota and New Mexico, two traditionally blue states the president’s strategists have identified as having potential to flip in 2020. Still, the Trump campaign believes that both states are in play this time around. On a conference call with reporters, a senior official said the campaign is working on a “huge buildout” of paid staffers and a volunteer network in Minnesota that will dwarf their 2016 efforts there. In the past election, the campaign had only one staffer on the ground in Minnesota, and that person...

    Ben Affleck: Bush Can Be Hung for 'Leaks' in Plamegate By Josh Hart Apr 9, 2006 Actor Ben Affleck suggested this weekend on 'Real Time with Bill Maher' that President Bush “probably leaked” Valerie Plame's name and so “if he did, you can be hung for that! That's treason!” The would be politician and Democrat went through this exchange according to News Busters that gives a brief and rough transcript on how Mr. Affleck came to this conclusion. *** The panel guests were Senator Joe Biden (D-DE) who was quite humorous as he let loose with some funny four-quotes.
