Cruz Takes Trap-Question About Deportation, and Blows it Out of the Water

“No legacy is so rich as honesty.” – William Shakespeare We’ve developed into a society in which honesty is the most hated value. Honesty often acts as a knife, paring away deception that’s been carefully layered over the truth. That can be tremendously painful, and as a result, we’ve essentially let go of honesty, and replaced it with lies. We are masterful liars. We lie because it benefits us personally, or it makes the people to whom we’re lying feel better. In the end, however, a lie is damaging Read more […]

IRS Defends Giving “Back Pay” Tax Refunds to Illegal Immigrants

What? It’s bad enough that the civil government gives so-called refunds to people who haven’t actually paid any taxes. But now the IRS is claiming that illegal immigrants with new Social Security numbers (thanks to Obama’s executive amnesty) are apparently entitled to “refunds” for taxes they never paid while they were earning money in the US illegally. What could their defense of this possibly be? Here it is , for what it’s worth: President Obama’s new deportation amnesty could Read more […]

“No Force on Earth Can Stop” Obama’s Immigration Activism

You’ve got to ask yourself… just what does Obama really want to accomplish with his immigration activism? Is it truly as obvious as it seems? Is it really the case that he cares about nothing more than getting votes for the Democratic Party? I guess. I can’t believe how obvious he is about it though: “The clearest path to change is to change [the voter turnout] number,” said Obama “Si se puede, si votamos! Yes, we can, if we vote!” . . . “Each of us is called on to stand proudly Read more […]

Going the Way of Rome: Illegal Immigrants in the Military

Want more proof that the United States is a decadent empire in its twilight years? Here it is. We’ve decided to allow a select group of illegal immigrants (as many as 2 million fit the description) to enlist in the military. This seems to be the first step in Obama’s promise to find other paths to grant illegal immigrants citizenship: The new Pentagon policy may be the first phase of a broader government-wide effort to ease pressure on immigrants and create new paths to citizenship. President Read more […]

How Obama is Taking the “Illegal” Out of Illegal Immigrants

I’ve been writing for this site for long enough to know that the phrase “illegal immigrants” really annoys some of you. “Illegal aliens,” you’ll say. “There’s no such thing as an illegal immigrant.” Well, there actually is. An immigrant is someone who changes residency from one country to another. So far so good. An illegal immigrant is someone who changes residency from one country to another illegally. Well, Obama aims to change that. But just like he said earlier this year, Read more […]

Illegal Aliens & Their Crimes

“If we would reach a degree of civilization higher and grander than any yet attained, we should welcome to our ample continent all nations, kindreds [sic] tongues and peoples; and as fast as they learn our language and comprehend the duties of citizenship, we should incorporate them into the American body politic. The outspread wings of the American eagle are broad enough to shelter all who are likely to come.” – Frederick Douglass Under Herbert Hoover’s presidency during the Great Depression, Read more […]

Amnesty Hazardous To Our Economy & Unfair To Legal Immigrants

Michael Pollan said: “I think perfect objectivity is an unrealistic goal; fairness, however, is not.” Fairness is a strange beast; it casts a shadow over every policy debate in Washington these days. Marriage fairness, economic fairness, taxation fairness, and social fairness all loom large in our society. But there is a perception that fairness equals getting what you want, all the time. It is a perception that sows discontent and creates numerous problems. Life isn’t fair; we all know that. However, Read more […]

“Illegal Immigrant” No Longer an Acceptable Term—It’s Hurtful

Sometimes, I feel as though I’m in an episode of The Twilight Zone, mixed with a twisted Groundhog Day, being forced to suffer some kind of eternal punishment. I wake up, I turn on my computer, and I read some news story about some supposedly amazing social project upon which Liberals are working; or some new rule dictated by the leaders of the Left; or even a surprise attack on someone in the Conservative community for saying something that runs afoul of Liberal constitutions–by which I mean their Read more […]

Immigrant Hops Fence While US Senators Tour Mexican Border

Earlier this month, the New York Times reported that the Arizona – Mexico border is safer now than it’s been in years.  According to the report, the border is more heavily guarded using Blackhawk helicopters, drones, surveillance towers, infrared cameras, motion detectors and increased Border Patrol.  They also referred to the 18 foot high border fence that stretches across part of the Arizona – Mexico border, but that fence is far from being complete and may never be completed. However, Read more […]

Illegal Immigrants About To Push Grandma Off The Cliff

Since Reagan’s 1986 Immigration Amnesty, entitlement dependent illegal immigrants and their families have become a financial burden that American families can no longer afford to bear. Some experts predict that it will take 300 years for our current immigrant families to pay any substantive share of income taxes. In other words, America will not experience any fiscal relief from Immigration Reform for at least a century. Any Republican that supports any proposed Immigration Reform legislation is Read more […]

Immigration Reform Plan is Offensive to Legal Immigrants

In the 2012 election, a number of Republicans failed to get elected or re-elected because of their opposition to giving everything to illegal immigrants.  In places like the Southwest, where a large part of the population is Hispanic, (Hispanics will be the majority population in California by end of summer), they control a lot of the votes. In an effort to win some of those votes over to the GOP, some key Republican Senators have worked out a tentative outline for immigration reform.  From Read more […]

Obama’s Open-Borders Agenda Has Dangerous Consequences

There are so many schemes in the world of politics that it’s difficult to attach policy to intention with any true certainty. We can know someone’s heart, and motives, only as far as they are willing to reveal them to us. That being said, some things are crystal clear, because the action taken can only be the result of one intention, and one mindset. Following an audit of border-related security, the investigative branch of Congress announced on Wednesday that a whopping 39% of illegal immigrants Read more […]
