On Amnesty: Cruz, Rubio, and ‘Compassion’

“We must reject the idea that every time a law’s broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions.” – Ronald Reagan As the divide between the Rubioites and the Cruzians expands, several themes have begun to come into sharp focus. One such theme is the contrast between those who support amnesty/legalization, and those who do not. As arguments become more barbed, they often become less intelligent, Read more […]

Ted Cruz Didn’t Ever Support Legalization

As the field began to emerge for the Republican nomination, I had high hopes. This is all well before the official campaign announcements–before the speculations even. This was near the end of 2013, when I began to get a sense of who was gearing up to take a run at the nomination. There were the usual suspects: Jeb Bush, Chris Christie, Bobby Jindal; you could see their candidacies coming from a mile away. Then there were the candidacies that seemed like a bit of a gamble: Marco Rubio, Rand Paul, Read more […]

Cut Off the Head and the Body Will Die: Let’s Get Serious about Illegal Immigration

“One of the critical issues that we have to confront is illegal immigration, because this is a multi-headed Hydra that affects our economy, our health care, our health care, our education systems, our national security, and also our local criminality.” – Allen West The immigration debate is more necessary than ever before, and yet few politicians have any workable ideas. Personally, had we the resources and the ability, I would deport every illegal immigrant, and bar them from returning, as they Read more […]

Donald Trump, Ann Coulter, Immigration, and Stupid People

“You cannot swim for new horizons until you have courage to lose sight of the shore.” – William Faulkner Over the last few weeks, ideological conservatives have separated themselves into two groups: the pro-Trumps, and the anti-Trumps. The divide between the two groups has become so stark that people are forgetting there are other options. People on both sides have begun to think in black and white, creating a false dilemma. You’re either all in for Trump, or he makes your blood boil so intensely Read more […]

The Endless Lie that Mass-Deportation is too Expensive

“Things come apart so easily when they have been held together with lies.” – Dorothy Allison Watching “The Kelly File” tonight, I was once again hit over the head by the endlessly repeated lie that the United States simply doesn’t have the financial resources to deport all the millions of illegal immigrants living in the United States. This time, the lie came from the mouth of Leslie Marshall—but it’s all the same. Set aside any argument regarding the ethics of illegal immigration, or what Read more […]

The Death of Kate Steinle and Why the Democrats Refuse to Talk about It

“It’s motive alone which gives character to the actions of men.” – Jean de la Buyere On July 1, 2015, Kate Steinle was murdered by Francisco Sanchez, an illegal immigrant who had previously been convicted of seven felonies, and who had been deported five times. When interviewed by a San Francisco ABC affiliate, Sanchez said that he chose to move there because of its status as a “sanctuary city” in which illegals are essentially protected from federal law. This should never have happened. There Read more […]

Donald Trump Was Right About Illegals and We All Know It

“When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re not sending you. They’re not sending you. They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.” – Donald Trump When Donald Trump said the above words, most of America cringed. Some were outraged, some were uncomfortable, and some were flat out floored that a candidate Read more […]

Illegal Immigrants Used as Reason for Censorship

UC Irvine Students Ban American Flag Because It May Offend Illegal Immigrants “Those who want to reap the benefits of this great nation must bear the fatigue of supporting it.” – Thomas Paine When someone does something wrong, but doesn’t want to accept responsibility for their actions, they must find someone or something that is bigger and badder than themselves, so that by comparison, they appear the lesser evil. This is called self-victimization, and it has become the go-to for liberals. The Read more […]

Republican Mules Chase the Compromise Carrot

“I am patient with stupidity but not with those who are proud of it.” – Edith Sitwell How many times can one dangle a carrot in front of a mule before the mule figures out that it will never get that carrot? If that mule is a Republican, the answer is never. For decades, Republicans have been caving to the demands of Democrats in an effort to be “bi-partisan,” but all they ever get in return is empty promises. Fool me once, shame on you, fool me…I dunno, several thousand times, shame on me. The Read more […]

False Notion: Conservatives Are Anti-Immigrant

Democrats and the media frequently portray the GOP as anti-immigrant. Don’t fall for it. A straw man fallacy is a type of argumentative fallacy in which a person’s position is distorted to the benefit of their opponent. According to Nizkor, “a straw man fallacy is committed when a person simply ignores a person’s actual position and substitutes a distorted, exaggerated or misrepresented version of that position.” Straw men offer people a way out of an argument that they believe they cannot Read more […]

Why Ted Cruz is The Only Option in 2016

Ted Cruz is the only possible Republican candidate who understands the problem with amnesty. “It is dangerous to be right in matters on which the established authorities are wrong.” – Voltaire Even though we just came off an election that seemed to last an eternity, we are approaching 2016 more quickly than we realize. Unlike the last two presidential election cycles, the Republican field is stacked in 2016. There are several solid contenders for the nomination, as well as a parade of horribles Read more […]

Pro-Amnesty Republican Jeff Flake Calls For “Rational” Solutions From Conservatives

According To Google, rational is defined as being “based on, or in accordance with reason or logic.” Republican Senator Jeff Flake, during a recent interview with The Daily Beast, suggested that pro-amnesty Republicans stay away from Iowa in 2016, and that if the Party doesn’t come up with a competent immigration strategy, they will lose the national election: “Some people skip Iowa. That’s not unheard of. McCain basically did…It’s tough to take positions in Iowa that don’t play as Read more […]
