The Children of Illegal Immigrants Are Not Born American Citizens
By Tim Dunkin Thursday, August 27, 2015
Once again, Donald Trump has managed to open up a robust national discussion about an issue that up to this point had been largely ignored by the political class. This time, the discussion is about so-called “birthright citizenship,” the idea that whenever a foreign national (regardless of legal status and with a very few exceptions) has a child on American soil, this child automatically becomes an American citizen from birth. This approach to citizenship has been the de facto (though not de jure) approach to the issue of “anchor babies,” the children of illegal aliens who come to the United States so that they can have their children here, thus allowing the parents to remain as well, usually helping themselves to generous American benefit monies.
Hunger by Government Definition Is “Food Insecure”
By Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh Thursday, August 27, 2015
As liberals complain that people are going hungry and the first lady transforms the school lunch fare to “healthy” offerings nobody seems to like, the federal government is spending plenty on “domestic food assistance to provide food for the hungry and other vulnerable populations in this country.”
According to the Congressional Research Service, there are many agencies that offer food assistance to the needy in this country, citizens, non-citizens, and illegals.
Ebeneezer Biden: Better at Giving Away Your Money Than His
By William Kevin Stoos Thursday, August 27, 2015
Recently, Ace Reporter Hugh Betcha—named Univision’s “Most Trusted Conservative Reporter, 2015,” and MSNBC’s “Reporter We Would Most Like to Hang Out With, 2015” overheard a discussion in the ObamaMedia about Republican politicians’ charitable giving habits. Since liberal politicians are so caring for the poor, since Hillary is taking a nose dive in the polls, and kindly Uncle Joe Biden is about to enter the race for President, Hugh decided to explore the would-be Democrat standard bearer’s history of charitable giving. Certainly his private giving must match his avowed love of and desire to help the poor.
But just when Hugh thought that there was no politician stingier than Barack Obama—who, before he became President, gave as little as .6% of his income to the poor—lo and behold we find that Obama had picked as his running mate, a man who gives far less to the poor than Obama himself. While Obama’s tax returns prior to his 2008 election reveal a portrait of a man who privately gives very little to the poor—less than any Republican Hugh knows—Joe Biden gave even less. In fact, Biden’s past history of charitable giving is so abysmally poor that he makes even Obama look like Santa Claus. Biden may well have been the stingiest man in the Senate before he became VP. For two of the most liberal politicians in Washington, they were embarrassingly conservative when it comes to reaching into their own pockets and helping the poor, whose cause they pretend to champion. If they thought that the public actually knew how little they do to help the poor, these two hypocrites would never again spout their populist drivel about Republican “trickle down” economics or criticize the Republicans for not doing enough to help the poor.
Planned Parenthood Audit Rejected
By Douglas V. Gibbs Thursday, August 27, 2015
California State Assemblywoman Melissa Melendez, R-Lake Elsinore, requested an audit of Planned Parenthood. Her request was a response to videos by a pro-life organization using undercover style reporting revealing Planned Parenthood officials discussing selling the body parts of aborted babies on the black market. She intended that the audit of California’s Planned Parenthood locations would ensure the organization is not illegally profiting from the donation of aborted baby tissue. Her request was rejected by a State legislative committee on Tuesday, August 25.
Planned Parenthood contends the videos that exposed their alleged dealings in the body-tissue black market were deceptively edited and that the organization only seeks to cover the cost of shipping fetal tissue, which is used in medical research.

Stealing from Walmart still stealing
By Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh Thursday, August 27, 2015
In the new “legal relativism” and mob justice atmosphere that uses “social justice” as an excuse to loot and burn down stores in their neighborhoods, Everett Mitchell, the Director of Community Relations at the University of Wisconsin, Madison campus, stated during a discussion panel, “Best Policing Practices,” that prosecuting shoplifters from Walmart and Target is “aggressive police behavior.”
“I just don’t think they should be prosecuting cases for people who steal from Walmart. I don’t think that. I don’t think that Target, and all them other places – the big boxes that have insurance – they should be using the people that steal from there as justification to start engaging in aggressive police behavior.”
The #BlackLivesMatter Revolution Will Be Televised
By Matthew Vadum Thursday, August 27, 2015
Hoping to start a bloody “race war,” a black, gay, in-your-face Obama-supporting former TV reporter horrified Southwest Virginia TV viewers yesterday when he stalked and coolly murdered two white former TV station colleagues and wounded a white interview subject during a live broadcast.
The shooter, Vester Lee Flanagan II, 41, apparently a registered Democrat and former prostitute, said he attacked the three white people during the “standup” report about local tourism from the marina at Smith Mountain Lake as racial payback for white-supremacist Dylann Storm Roof’s June 17 attack in Charleston, S.C. that left nine black churchgoers dead. Roof, who reportedly confessed, also said he wanted to start a race war by committing acts of violence.

Thin-skinned journalists of the latter day are getting to be just like Democrat politicians, insult them and they’ll soon demand an apology.

Loud and Clear Politics For a Change
By Ray DiLorenzo Wednesday, August 26, 2015
The candidacy of Donald Trump is about much more than The Donald. It is about anger, frustration, dissatisfaction and resentment. It is about the growing anger that nothing gets done, frustration over a deaf and obese Federal Government, dissatisfaction when they do try to accomplish something and resentment when they don’t care when they are found incompetent. It is about a government that asserts that it knows best when it doesn’t. It is about insisting everything is on track when we know that it is off track.
It is about the mainstream news media that has taken sides and has partnered with government to dictate how we should behave and think. It is about cherry- picking news stories that boost your agenda or vice versa. It is about corruption at the highest levels of government, the media and their business cronies.
Virginia murderer’s manifesto: Angry about Charleston, says he was bullied for being gay and black
By Dan Calabrese Wednesday, August 26, 2015
We haven’t been all over this story all day because we didn’t figure you needed one more conservative news site presuming to give you up-to-the-minute updates. But we’re shaken like everyone else by the murders of Adam Ward and Alison Parker on live television this morning in Virginia. And we’re now learning more about the motives and the twisted mind of Vester Flanagan, who died this afternoon of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. Flanagan had worked for a year as a reporter at WDBJ - the very same station that was broadcasting the live interview he invaded with gunfire early this morning.
Long past time to make English the official national language of the United States
By Al Kaltman Wednesday, August 26, 2015
“Language is a unifying instrument which binds people together. When people speak one language they become as one, they become a society”—S.I. Hayakawa
Donald Trump’s stance on illegal immigration is a timely reminder that assimilation (to a common language, culture and values) is what makes the United States exceptional. If we are to continue to be the greatest nation on earth then we must remain a melting pot. As Senator Hayakawa so eloquently explained, “The United States, a land of immigrants from every corner of the world, has been strengthened and unified because its newcomers have historically chosen ultimately to forgo their native language for the English language. We have all benefited from the sharing of ideas, of cultures and beliefs, made possible by a common language. We have all enriched each other.”
Palestine—Changed Narratives Needed To Nurture New Negotiations
By David Singer Wednesday, August 26, 2015
France is not expected to present its anticipated draft proposal for the declaration of a Palestinian State to the U.N. Security Council in September—having reportedly been criticized both by Israel - which does not want any external solution imposed on it - and by the PLO - which fears the Security Council will not meet its demands.
The Oslo Accords and the Bush Roadmap are dead and buried—even if the headstone is yet to be ceremoniously unveiled marking the actual date when the collective records, transcripts and secret minutes detailing fruitless negotiations conducted during the last 20 years between Israel and the now-disbanded Palestinian Authority were finally consigned to the graveyard of history.
Combat Roles Hazardous to Women’s Health
By Arnold Ahlert Wednesday, August 26, 2015
Last week, 1st Lt. Shaye Haver, 25, and Capt. Kristen Griest, 26, became the first women to earn their Ranger Tabs, graduating from the U.S. Army’s Ranger School at Fort Benning, GA. Maj. Gen. Scott Miller, the guest speaker at the graduation ceremony, emphasized that both women were held to the same standards as their male counterparts, insisting “a 5-mile run is still a 5-mile run. Standards do not change. A 12-mile march is still a 12-mile march.” True enough. But as Center for Military Readiness (CMR) president Elaine Donnelly reveals, there is a jarring flaw in the military’s headlong rush to make men and women interchangeable cogs in combat arms units: previously-undisclosed military combat experiments demonstrate that women sustain injury rates at double the rate of men.
The grueling Ranger course, emphasizing physical strength and endurance, was launched on a one-time basis as part of the Army’s effort to determine which combat jobs can eventually be opened up to women. Women were part of the training at Fort Benning due to a January 2013 directive by senior Pentagon leaders to integrate women into front-line combat units, including the Army Rangers and Navy SEALs, by 2016.
Levin calls Bush & O’Reilly out on Birthright Citizenship
By Judi McLeod Wednesday, August 26, 2015
Taking his signature surefire aim, talk show radio host Mark Levin zapped the man he so colorfully nicknames “the 8 PMer” with a slingshot Monday night.
In fact, Levin took out the proverbial two birds with one stone by zapping both ‘8 PMer’ Bill O’Reilly and presidential hopeful Jeb Bush on their carefully crafted lies on “birthright citizenship” under the 14th amendment.
The ‘Ferguson Effect’ Spreads
By Matthew Vadum Wednesday, August 26, 2015
A white police officer in the South who was recently beaten bloody and unconscious by a black suspect now admits he failed to defend himself properly because he was afraid if he used force he would have been accused of racism.
This is poignant testimony to the tremendous damage that the racist Black Lives Matter movement has inflicted on the American psyche. Nowadays police all over the country are increasingly reluctant, or in some cases outright unwilling, to perform their duties as law enforcement personnel. They know that government officials, eager to pander to loud, angry lynch mobs in the street, don’t have their back. The mainstream media has been playing a supporting role, turning every police shooting of a person of color into a cause célèbre, regardless of the circumstances leading to the shooting. So cops are taking unnecessary chances, ignoring police safety protocols and giving suspects the benefit of the doubt when it is not warranted.
