By

Via Geoff Holtzman, posting at Rare. Link below.

It’s easy to see why Democrats and...

Did Lindsey Graham and John McCain Tag Team Conservatives in BuzzFeed’s “racist” Smear?

January 31, 2014

A quick bit of research gives me good reason to believe Lindsey Graham and John McCain may have teamed up to smear conservatives as racists in a BuzzFeed article. Let’s face it, are the two ever really that far apart? They’re like Pete and repeat, including on immigration reform.

You know it’s over when they can demonize the Swedes.

The scene of Sweden’s worst riots in years, Husby is on the surface at least a typically neat suburb of colorful playgrounds, manicured parks and low rise apartment buildings.

Conversations with residents of this immigrant neighborhood soon bring tales of fruitless job hunts,...

Sadly, this is something of a whole new definition of planned parenthood, or not.

A man in Washington state took a 14-year-old girl to a Planned Parenthood clinic for an abortion to cover up his sexual assault on the teenage girl. The abortion business apparently did the abortion without hesitation.

The Heritage Immigration Study Is Tragically Flawed And Conservatives Are Foolish To Defend It

May 10, 2013
By

This is sad to see. Some of the usual suspects can demagogue and yell witch hunt all they want, the fact is the latest Heritage immigration study betrays both the Constitution and Conservatism and deserves to be rejected.

And, oh, by the way, I’m no fan of the the Gang of Eight so stow that noise in...

Said snowboard instructors undoubtedly huddled around a campfire singing,  Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire in honor of bill supporter Senator Marco Rubio, because America, or something!

Are snowboard instructors key to American immigration policy? Well, they’re important enough to be specifically included in the Senate bipartisan Gang of Eight immigration reform bill.

Too little, too late? US tightens student visa rules after Boston bombing

Unfortunatekly, you have to wonder if this is simply for show, or if it will actually change anything in what looks to be a wide-open and widely flawed system.

Someone needs to answer for this. That hasn’t been this administration’s strong suit, in large part thanks to a compliant press. Perhaps they’ll one day get over their love affair and get back to doing their jobs.

The terrorist’s mother, Zubeidat Tsarnaeva refuses to accept what her children did. She seems intent on playing the victim card. Somehow, I don’t think that’s going to get ‘er done when or if it comes time to try her surviving son.
