Two wins for Trump

Cal Thomas, Washington Times

The Supreme Court’s two rulings mark a welcome setback to the open borders crowd and those secular progressives who view the expression of any religious view in the public square the way a vampire views a cross. It has been a curiosity of mine that some people believe using God’s name as a curse word is speech protected by the Constitution, while claiming the opposite when it comes to speaking well of the Deity at a commencement ceremony.

A Renewed MS-13 — Courtesy of Obama’s Lax Immigration Policies

Mark Krikorian, National Review

Obama’s fecklessness has created an MS-13 crime wave from the Long Island, N.Y., communities of Brentwood and Central Islip to Santa Maria, Calif., and in the many other communities in between where Central American teenagers were shipped. The lesson: The Obama approach of enforcing immigration law only against illegal aliens who have been convicted of violent crimes is a recipe for disaster.

The Perfect Man – You Know Him When You See Him

It is interesting to note that while the billboards don’t mention Islam or Mohammed, the Muslim community knew exactly who it was referring to.  The truth is a powerful weapon, and Truthophobia -- fear of the truth -- is getting a lot of people killed.

Was Rep. Clay Higgins Right About Islam's War Against America?

Louisiana's Congressman Clay Higgins started a firestorm amongst the politically correct establishment when he posted on Facebook "The free world... all of Christendom... is at war with Islamic horror. Not one penny of American treasure should be granted to any nation who harbors these heathen animals. Not a single radicalized Islamic suspect should be granted any measure of quarter..."

President Ryan Takes Over

The spending bill Paul Ryan is about to ram through Congress shows that despite Donald Trump’s historic election win it is Speaker Paul Ryan who is really running the show in Washington, and President Ryan has no intention of fulfilling candidate Donald Trump’s campaign promises.

Opening Our Borders Would Overwhelm America

Dave Seminara, Wall Street Journal

If the U.S. loosened visa restrictions or expanded the sanctuary-city concept to the national level, particularly with no similar moves from any of the world’s other rich nations, we’d see the largest mass movement in human history. It would be an epic economic and environmental catastrophe. And yet in the current political climate, it’s hard to find anyone outside the Trump wing of the Republican Party willing to articulate the need for enforcement.

With Flynn Out Islamist Sympathizers In At Trump White House?

Mike Flynn was clear-eyed about the threat Islam poses to constitutional liberty and America’s Judeo-Christian culture. Whoever conned President Trump into saying that he thought Islam has been “kidnapped by radical groups” did so by failing to tell him that he was meeting with a representative of one of the chief kidnappers – the Wahhabis of the Saudi royal family.

Facebook Labels ConservativeHQ “Malicious” Blocks Pro-Trump Content

Right before the election Facebook began to block CHQ content. In responses that sounded like they were written by Lois Lerner, we were assured that the problem had nothing to do with ConservativeHQ’s name or the conservative content of our articles, but the problem has continued to grow and now Facebook has labeled CHQ a "malicious" website.

Trump's better order — and the border

Editors, Washington Examiner

The simple step of announcing and explaining the order was a big, necessary step. The order is more detailed and it contains a thorough legal justification, and the administration also released a fact sheet helping to clarify it yet further. The Cabinet secretaries on Monday laid out the framework and some of the reasoning.

DHS Orders Breathtaking Crackdown on Illegal Immigration

Rick Moran, PJ Media

Perhaps the most breathtaking element in these new guidelines is that illegals captured at the border will no longer be released into the U.S. to await a hearing before an immigration judge. Most will be turned around and sent back to Mexico. With the increased monitoring and surveillance at the border, the number of illegals being able to settle in the interior of the U.S. will be drastically reduced.

Why Not Make Sanctuary Cities Pay For The Border Wall?

According to our friends at openthebooks.com “sanctuary cities” extort almost $27 billion from American taxpayers to pursue their unconstitutional scheme to nullify the immigration laws passed by Congress. Withholding federal funds from just two of them would more than pay for the wall in just one year, and the rest would be gravy for the taxpayers of jurisdictions whose elected officials follow the Constitution and the laws passed by Congress.

Trump, the Perpetual Underdog

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

Trump looks like an underdog as the judicial branch blatantly usurps the authority of the executive branch on a matter as fundamental as the entry of foreigners from dangerous countries into the country. How is anybody supposed to take the claim of Trump as a “monstrous threat to the Constitution” seriously when Democrats and judges are busy extending the Constitution to foreign nationals in Libya, Somalia, and other terror hot spots?

Cotton fills Sessions' shoes on immigration

W. James Antle III, Washington Examiner

Jeff Sessions just left a leadership vacuum in the Senate on the issue of immigration, and Sen. Tom Cotton is trying to fill it. The Arkansas Republican and Sen. David Perdue, R-Ga., this week introduced a tough immigration bill that has hardliners cheering, and signaled that Cotton is likely to inherit the issue from Sessions, who was just confirmed as President Trump's attorney general.

The Good News In The Battle Over President Trump’s Immigration Policies

Despite the pessimism many conservatives feel after the ultra-liberal Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals failed to overturn District Judge James Robart’s plainly extra-constitutional order stopping the President from suspending immigration from seven terrorist hotspots, there is much good news in the immigration battle.

Trump Spite Leads to Defense of Idiocy

Steven Greenhut, The American Spectator

California’s legal citizens face a growing array of laws, regulations and taxes. In their zeal to poke their finger in the eye of the Republican administration, however, legislators are passing laws that provide wide areas of legal exemptions — designed mainly to benefit people who are here illegally. It’s a perverse legislative approach in a state that can never manage to deregulate anything (except, perhaps, abortion clinics).

Sorry WaPo, Refugees Are Not Already Vigorously Vetted

Dan Cadman, CNS News

For vetting to work, there has to be information to vet against. Where there is none, a blank slate is not necessarily evidence that an individual is a bona fide refugee, and yet that is the presumption that results from current processes.

The Judicial Coup Against President Trump

For all intents and purposes the President’s powers as Commander in Chief and his executive power to maintain the country’s sovereignty have been seized by 97 globalist technology companies and an unelected judge in the Western District of Washington.

Useful Idiots No More

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

The Trump administration is pulling the plug on the official Islamophilia of the last administration, which the New York Times seems to think went swimmingly. Remember the glory days when Obama was inviting the Muslim Brotherhood to his speeches, his attorney general was banning any mention of Islamic terrorism, and his CIA director was sanitizing jihad as a “legitimate tenet of Islam”? Apparently, we’re supposed to tremble at the thought that this period has passed.

Trump should mean business on immigration

Editors, Washington Examiner

If Trump wants to fight for the forgotten man, he will rebuff requests to expand guest-worker programs. He will, rather, scrap the guest-worker program for low-skilled workers, and also totally overhaul the high-skilled guest-worker program.

Christian Refugees Merit Priority Status

Bill Donohue, CNS News

Should Christian refugees be given priority status? Absolutely. There is one overriding reason: they are the most persecuted people on earth. It is not compassionate to treat every religion equally when the distribution of the victims of religious persecution, and the reasons for it, are so egregiously unequal.
