Gov. Walker, like former US Senator, Rick Santorum,Â has takenÂ things further than just a discussion of illegal immigration.Â They haveÂ dared to discuss the impact of legal immigration on American workers.Â Like most Republicans, Iâm still undecided about the Presidential field.Â But I have an enormous amount of respect for these guys and whatÂ they haveÂ done as they campaign.Â I applaudÂ their Â statements on immigration andÂ their willingness to go against the status quo on immigration.
Boehner joins a large number of conservative lawmakers calling for the bankâs end.Â House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, Majority Whip Steve Scalise and House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Paul Ryan have all expressed their desire to âbreak the bank,â as have six Republican presidential candidates: Senators Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio, and Governors Bobby Jindal, Mike Pence, Scott Walker and former Governor Jeb Bush.
Marriage is the greatest âprogramâ to end poverty, child abuse, child sexual abuse, school dropout, college failure, health problems, drug problems, depression, out-of-wedlock births to teenagers, reduce abortions, increase home ownership and savings âŚ We know that when you remove marriage as a factor, there is virtually no difference between whites and blacks on graduation, employment and staying out of jail.
The US Congress is rightly fighting to play its due role in such an important national security issue. And on April 29 it took a bold, rather overdue move and invited Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the president of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) to testify before the House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on Terrorism, Nonproliferation, and Trade.
Truth has long since been replaced by ânarrativesâ on the American left.Â Rather than discuss genuine issues and objective facts, progressives prefer to make up a politically effective story.Â It doesnât matter whether the story is false, as long as it sways the publicâs emotions and wins the day.Â The ends justify the means.
American citizens understand the serious economic impact of illegal immigration. In addition to Americans having to compete with illegal immigrants for jobs, the nation as a whole has seen a dramatic depression in wages as we import more and more workers to compete for jobs. Following complete inaction under the Clinton and Bush presidencies, Obamaâs policies have further exacerbated the strain of illegal immigration on the nationâs economy as well as our security.
As the U.S. Supreme Court prepares to consider whether to overturn the marriage laws of all the statesâas some activist federal judges have already done in some of the states--conservatives are naturally calling for judicial restraint. We must warn the court against another exercise of âraw judicial powerâ like that handed down with its infamous 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling. That cruel and unjust ruling is viewed as illegitimate by tens of millions of Americans. Young people, especially, are turning against abortion-on-demand. We see this in every pro-life march. And this public outcry is being translated into a bumper crop of pro-life legislation bubbling up in state legislatures.
The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) has taken Dr. Ben Carsonâs name off their âlistâ of extremists. Isnât that charitable? The idea that SPLC gets to sit in its comfortable offices and make lists of Americans to smear ought to be offensive. Liberals are forever re-living the horrors of Joe McCarthyâs âlist-making,â but seem to have little problem with SPLC. Maybe that acronym for that outfit, SPLC, should stand for âSmearing Pro-Life Christians.â
President Obama has been vigorously pursuing a policy of appeasement in the Mideast for his entire term. He has apparently adopted the view that if we give billions to the âdemocracyâ movements within the Muslim majority lands, and back them up with military force where they happen, however tenuously, to gain control, they will support our efforts to crush the âviolent extremistsâ in their midst. Heaven forbid we call them Jihadists. We wouldnât want to offend the overwhelming majority there. White House spokesmen claim, for example, that the Taliban is an armed insurgency, not a terrorist group. (Even though they harbored al Qaeda and are themselves listed as a sponsor of terrorism.)
Our favorite argument of the government school monopolists came from the late Al Shanker, longtime president of the American Federation of Teachers (AFT). Parents are not qualified to judge their childrenâs schools, Shanker said. They lack the essential knowledge.
