Extending DACA or passing a larger amnesty bill before we build the promised border wall, before we take other actions to improve border security, before we beef up internal enforcement of our immigration laws, and before we remove the incentives to come and stay in America illegally would be a colossal mistake.

Considering his record on “values” Mitt Romney arrogantly setting himself up as the arbiter of “American values” leaves us stuck someplace between amusement and disgust, so we thought in our second #NeverMitt article we should look at the real Mitt Romney, and his record on one of America's foundational values.

There’s no doubt about it, the left is using Trump’s colorful use of language and “behavior” to distract from the progress he’s achieved in making America great again. The former president’s demeanor may have been more to the liberals’ liking -- but it’s not his show to run anymore.

While the false missile alert shows bungling state Democrats in Hawaii at their most incompetent, it also shows liberals and the establishment media at their most hypocritical. After eight years during which Obama was responsible for nothing, it now appears that President Trump is responsible for everything that goes wrong in the world.

Churches in China have been demolished twice in the past month. Last December, the only Catholic Church in Zhifang, a village near Shaanxi, was destroyed for no apparent reason, 20 years after it opened, and now the Golden Lampstand, an evangelical church in serving 50,000 Christians in Linfen has been destroyed.

The left has weaponized racism to destroy what remains of traditional American culture and institutions such as the church and family. Social media is the liberals’ preferred method for spreading propaganda, a strategy that’s proved very effective for furthering their sinister aims.

We think all the establishment huffing and puffing about President Trump's "sh-thole" remark is cover for the fact that other than achieving their goal of fundamentally changing America, they have no answer for why we need more uneducated immigrants from underdeveloped countries.

In 1991 Chinese Communist leaders declared, "The new Cold War between China and America has begun.” China has been at war with us ever since.  And when your enemy says you are at war, then you are at war, whether you want to be or not.

Retirement is hardly an easy choice. For motivated people who spent years serving and providing it must be difficult to simply walk away. Nevertheless, bringing fresh perspectives to Washington is something the Congress desperately needs. On balance, it’s a very good thing.

So, who is right? Rush, who says don’t worry the President's meeting wasn’t about DACA, amnesty or anything but showing the world that Trump is in control and isn’t suffering from dementia. Or is it Tucker Carlson and Ann Coulter who say the meeting was a disaster, and perhaps the lowest point of Donald Trump’s presidency?

Politically, Washington should treat the PRC as a serious competitor. Depending on the issue, China may be adversary or friend. The U.S. should emphasize areas where the two nations’ interests coincide and look for compromises where interests diverge. Washington cannot dictate: negotiation over contested issues is inevitable.

President Trump’s attempt to bring the immigration debate out into the open can only be a good thing for an American public starved for information as to what’s really going on in government. The entertainment value is high; one can only hope the final result will be just as gratifying.

    Ronald Reagan asked a simple question both in 1980, when he ran against the economic malaise of the Carter years, and again in 1984, after he had implemented the same pro-growth policies Trump is now implementing. “Are you better off today than you were four years ago?” No politician or pundit can spin the answer to that question – every American knows it precisely in their own lives. Republicans are now uniquely poised to ask it once again.

    Even as the U.S. Homeland Security Agency has started accepting applications for extensions, as ordered by the courts pending final adjudication of the legislation. Even that’s not good enough for the Democrats. They insist on a permanent solution now, and if this inconveniences the Dreamers, that’s just too bad. Elections have consequences, and the Democrats, who did a little dreaming of their own about Hillary Clinton, just can’t understand why they can’t have it their way, anyway.

    I’m willing to let politicians allocate 100 percent of spending with earmarks if they’ll agree to a comprehensive spending cap that complies with the Golden Rule and slowly but surely shrinks the overall burden of federal spending. If the crowd in Washington is serious about the argument that earmarks are needed to grease the skids for desirable legislation, it’s time for them to put their votes where their mouths are.

    Forgotten also are historic truths about immigration. In the past, immigration has proven a great boon to a host country — if it was legal, measured, meritocratic and diverse. Illegal immigration flourished because Democrats wanted future constituents, and Republicans sought inexpensive labor. But an irate public has had it with open borders — and both parties are scrambling to hide their past and present agendas for now by focusing on the idealized Dreamers.

    It’s time we demand more accountability from the people who have such influence over our daily lives. Of course, what we would like others to do is also something many of us are leery of when it comes to our own actions. If you want to know why the U.S. has lost much of its accountability culture, many of us need do no more than look in the mirror.

  • Jeffrey Lord, The American Spectator

    We are indeed at a moral crossroads. And those of us who believe in Dr. King’s dream of a colorblind America where all Americans are judged not by the color of their skin but by the content of their character understand that the “bigotry and racist vitriol” in this country is not coming from President Trump or his supporters but rather from the American Left and the Democratic Party.

  • David Catron, The American Spectator

    Democrat/MSM propaganda notwithstanding, the CMS decision to support states that wish to use a work requirement as a prerequisite for continued Medicaid eligibility for able-bodied adults seems eminently reasonable. Medicaid reform is one of the nation’s most pressing domestic issues and the Trump administration is simply allowing the states to bring their creative energy to bear on the problem. This is not racist. This is not mean-spirited. It is an all-too-rare commodity called “leadership.”

    Instead of Gov. George Wallace standing in the schoolhouse door these days, it is the teachers' unions who prevent racial minority children from getting a decent education. The unions use their influence to stop efforts to create school choice programs. Working for their own interests — their pay and benefits — rather than those of students, they trap minority children in bad public schools.

  • Andrew C. McCarthy, National Review

    The Trump/Russia collusion story is the anatomy of a farce. The frantic churning of hearsay and innuendo about bad guys who, being bad guys, must have been doing bad things. But at the core, there is no concrete, admissible evidence of an espionage or corruption conspiracy; no solid identified sources, no verifiable wrongdoing. A circle of relentless suspicion with a hole in the middle where the crime is supposed to be.

    Whatever happens, the Europeans — particularly the Western Europeans — will be difficult. They are loathe to admit that Donald Trump, of all people, might be right about a crucial point of foreign policy, making them, once again, the weak appeasers of fascism. Also, they're greedy and want to keep their business with the Iranians going. And so, Sens. Corker and Cardin, our nation, indeed the world, turns its eyes to you. Are you ready to rescue your reputations with history?

    The pattern of sexual harassment allegations, and even rape allegations, uncovered by the media should overturn the entire concept of Hollywood lecturing anyone on the morality of any subject. The tsunami of hype for Winfrey's preaching shouldn't wash away an industry's culpability for the sexual abuse of women — and even children — seeking fame and fortune. That reckoning has only just begun.

  • Cheryl K. Chumley, Washington Times

    America’s government has a responsibility to secure the future of its own citizens first — and sorry, so sorry, anti-Trumpers of the world: That’s. Not. Racism. Neither, by the way, is calling a sh—hole country a sh—hole country. It may be bad form; it may be impolite. But racist? That it ain’t. It’s what we all know and say to be true about some sad and unfortunate countries — albeit, using different terminology — and it’s why most Americans feel so blessed to be American in the first place.

  • Scott McKay, The American Spectator

    Trump’s “s***holes” objection is big news rather than the fact there are so-called political leaders who can’t agree to reorient our immigration policy toward taking people who can successfully assimilate here. Between the two, the crude man who tells the truth and looks out for his own citizens is preferable to the genteel man who sells us out for cheap labor or ballot-box fuel for a political machine. If Trump is the former, so be it.

    Physical barriers can be used to stop people from going where they have no right to go; they are not inherently immoral; and, given a cost-benefit analysis of what it is you are protecting and how much it costs to protect, they can be well worth the cost. A wall is neither moral nor immoral any more than a baseball bat is moral or immoral. What matters is the purpose for which it is used.

  • Editors, Washington Examiner

    There will be cynical efforts by the Left to portray Medicaid waivers and work requirements as harmful to the poor. But nothing could be further from the truth. Appropriate and tailored work requirements preserve welfare programs so that their funding goes to help those in need and is not wasted on others. Getting people out of morally enfeebling dependency is also a good thing.
