If You Criticize the Media, You’ll be Told to Leave

from Huma Events:

That Time The Media Told Solzhenitsyn To Love It Or Leave It.

Last week, President Trump suggested that a few particularly acerbic critics of his immigration policies should pack up and leave. For that, he was branded a racist.

What’s really going on here?

“The press has become the greatest power within the Western countries, more powerful than the legislature, the executive and the judiciary. One would then like to ask: by what law has it been elected and to whom is it responsible?”

In 1978, the great Russian writer Alexander Solzhenitsyn was invited to give the commencement address at Harvard University.

In his speech, the exiled dissident harshly criticized Western news reporting for endorsing “fashionable trends of thought and ideas” while suppressing “independent-minded people from giving their contribution to public life.” read more

Illegal Alien MS-13 Gang Members Indicted

While democrats like Rep. Joaquin Castro (D-Texas) are concerned with ridding us of the term “illegal alien,” here’s what’s happening in the real world.

from Conservative Review:

19 of 22 indicted for ultra-violent MS-13 murders are illegal aliens from Central America

When James Madison said the jobs of the federal government were “few and defined,” applied “principally on external objects,” he was referring to exactly what has been brought into California from Central America. Yesterday, in what should be the biggest new story of the day, California and federal law enforcement wrapped up an MS-13 task force investigation, completing the indictment of 22 MS-13 members from a particularly brutal cell responsible for numerous gruesome murders. The operation began last year with the arrest of 18 members of MS-13’s “Fulton clique,” culminating with the arrest of the final four in recent days, according to the 78-page indictment. read more

Video Podcast – Trump Must Put the Courts in Their Place

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

The other day, Daniel Horowitz of Conservative Review made a couple of great points regarding the recent supreme Court decisions.

It was regarding both the DACA non-decision and the census decision.

Neither of these “cases” should involve the courts at any level, much less the supreme Court.

I discuss why both should be decided by only the Executive branch, with no inputs from the courts, and little, if any input from even the Legislative branch. read more

The Left is Unhinged over Detention Facilities

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Scroll Down for Audio Version

Let’s get one thing straight. The Southern border detention facilities are like Sandals Resorts compared with concentration/death/labor camps in Nazi Germany, Soviet Russia or Communist China.

And anyone who makes such an absurd comparison is a moron, who, in Nazi Germany, would have be deemed too mentally impaired to continue living. For the good of society they would have been euthanized.

Regarding the Southern border, Rush Limbaugh had a great point just yesterday, as to why the dems are hitting the conditions at these detention centers so hard. It’s because they can no longer talk about their other favorite topic – the plight of the homeless.

During both the Reagan and Bush presidencies, the left lamented regularly about the homeless situation.

Ronald Reagan was constantly blamed for American homelessness. He increased spending, “through the escalating military budget, all the while slashing funds for domestic programs that assisted working class Americans, particularly the poor.”

Decades later, Reagan was still being blamed. read more

New DHS Chief Undermines Trump

What’s that old saying? “Sometimes it’s better to stick with the devil you, than choose the one you don’t.”

Well, it’s been proven yet again, as it has many times just in the recent past.

Trump got rid of Homeland Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen because he thought her ineffective. Maybe so, but at least she was loyal. She’s the devil he knew.

Her replacement, acting Secretary, Kevin McAleenan, is the devil Trump evidently did not know.

Kirstjen Nielsen isn’t looking so bad at this time.

from Zero Hedge:

Acting DHS Chief ‘Sabotaged’ ICE Raids By Leaking Plan To Washington Post

Since the Washington Post spoiled the surprise and published a report about the Trump Administration’s plan to arrest thousands of migrant families who have been denied asylum – prompting the administration to cancel the raids – many have probably been wondering why somebody inside would break President Trump’s longstanding policy of not telegraphing your moves in advance.

ICE Raids to Clash with Leftist Mayors

Free Healthcare for Illegals – Not for Citizens

And of course we know it’s not free. Nothing is free. Oh, it’ll be free for illegals. But someone will have to pay for it. I wonder who that will be? And I wonder if “legal” immigrants will be granted the same benefit? I doubt it.

from Liberty Nation:

CA Voters Not Happy With Free Medical For Illegals

As the California state legislature and Gov. Gavin Newsom dislocate their shoulders in the hearty backslapping of their self-congratulatory moment in American history, the rest of the nation is snarling and spitting over the lunacy of the left coast Democrats.  That is, according to the new Rasmussen Reports poll, which asked if illegal immigrants should receive free health care.

The answer was a resounding no.  No way, no how, nuh-uh, nada. read more

‘They will be removed as fast as they come in’

Podcast – Immigration – Nothing New Under the Sun

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

If you dig deep enough and sometimes far enough back you’ll discover that there really isn’t anything new under the Sun, as the saying goes. It just means that there aren’t really any new ideas. New ideas are just rehashing of something that someone, sometimes hundreds or thousands of years already thought of or suggested or implemented.

So what does this have to do with immigration? Well, because Trump’s new “border czar,” as he’s being called – and I hate that term, is suggesting a lot of “new” and radical stuff, that’s not exactly new.

In fact, President Dwight D. “I Like Ike” Eisenhower did just that beginning exactly 65 years tomorrow. With little more than 1,000 agents, Ike decreased illegal border crossings by 95%. And it can be done again if only we had the courage and will to get it done. read more

The Obama administration deleted hundreds of speeches and statements on the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) website just hours before President Donald Trump officially entered office, according to research released Tuesday. read more
