A leftist, not a righty, was the mass shooter in Dayton

With denunciations and accusations flying back and forth about who’s to blame for the mass killings in El Paso and Dayton, more examples of media favoritism and unfairness rained down on the public. Buried in nearly all the reporting, editorializing and commentating was the fact that the Dayton shooter was an out-and-out Leftist. Even the most numb-skulled,... Read more »

Dems: Trump is not above the law, but illegal immigrants are

Lord, how often have Democrats repeated the mantra that “No one is above the law, not even President Trump.” Like water torture, it’s starting to make some of us crazy. Not that we believe that Trump is above the law, but because of the monumental hypocrisy of those who repeat the mantra, yet see nothing wrong... Read more »

Some Dems: Protect kids at border, but not newborns

You might say the inverse about some Republicans: Protect newborns but not kids at the border. I thought of that when watching President Trump’s state of the union speech last night. He announced that he would ask “Congress to pass legislation to prohibit the late-term abortion of children who can feel pain in the mother’s... Read more »

14,000 breaking down fences to enter an America that "was never that great"

The “caravan” of 14,000 who are marching through Mexico to storm the American border obviously know something that some progressives don’t: America is a special place that offers freedom, security and economic stability. For the 14,000 and the hundreds more that are reportedly forming in Central America in a second wave, they would disagree with New York Gov.... Read more »

Number of illegal aliens in U.S. double the estimated 11 million

The number of illegal aliens (a.k.a. undocumented immigrants) could be double the widely accepted estimate of 11.3 million, according to a Yale University study. It’s not some “anti-immigrant,” pro-Trump, right-wing fanatic that has updated the estimate to 22.1 million. This is an explosive study that could mean that estimates of what illegal immigration is costing American taxpayers may... Read more »

Will illegal immigrants be searched for plastic straws?

Mike Royko gave California Gov. Jerry Brown the nickname Moonbeam. What do you think Royko would say about this paradox?

'Progressives are not served here'

Nor are Planned Parenthood employees and supporters. Nor are people who voted for President Barack Obama. Nor is anyone from the fake news media. If we are to celebrate, as the left is, Stephanie Wilkinson, the owner of the Red Hen restaurant, for asking presidential press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders to leave her establishment because as she said, “This feels...

Blame both sides for separating families at the border

In what can only be described as abhorrent and immoral, the separation of families that have illegally entered the United States is a political act for which both sides deserve damnation. I can’t find stronger words to describe my loathing for any politicians who are terrorizing children by separating them from their parents in order to leverage a... Read more »

Dick Durbin's ridiculous take on 'chain migration'

For Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) the phrase “chain migration” is offensive to African-Americans because some of their ancestors were brought here in chains as slaves. Writes Ethan Epstein in the Weekly Standard: (Subscription may be required) Dick Durbin would like to have a word with the professoriate. It seems that the phrase “chain migration”—a technical term used... Read more »

It's up to Congress to renew DACA

First principle in the DACA debate: Splitting up families and sending a child “back” to countries they have never known is cruel, bad policy and stupid politics. But the Trump administration’s decision to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals policy created by the Obama administration is constitutionally sound because  the former president had exceeded his...
