The one good thing about the firearms debate ginned up by Obama’s gun grabbers is the increased reporting of successful instances of self-defense showing up in the media. Most don’t get reported at all; the press prefers to broadcast the bad news that includes guns.
Professor Emeritus James Q. Wilson of UCLA said, “We know from [...]
To the many establishment Republicans who believe as a matter of faith that a big amnesty for millions of foreign intruders is the key to future popularity, you can add John Sununu, the former Governor of New Hampshire. He apparently believes that the GOP can win the hispander bidding war against Democrats from Chicago.
Sununu urges [...]
In the White House, the re-election brain trust is gearing up to promote Obama as the great friend of hispanics, even though his promise to enact a mass amnesty in the first year of his Presidency never happened. In fact, he was busy with other things that he thought more important, in particular jamming through [...]
What is it with Republican candidates and their odd fascination with Puerto Rican statehood? Mitt Romney expressed support for the proposal in January while speech-making in Miami, and Gingrich was a statehooder back when he was Speaker and was launching his habit of hispandering politics.
The idea is an uninformed, foolish hope to entice “hispanics” to [...]
One of the most disturbing aspects to the unwelcome Mexicanization of the United States is the intrusion of Spanish into American life. There is nothing that prevents assimilation more than the increasing ease by which Spanish speakers can function in this country without learning English, a situation created by both business and government.
Furthermore, when millions [...]
It didn’t take long for Obama’s executive amnesty for illegal aliens to be followed by a major opinion piece in the New York Times complaining about voters being required to show identification at the polling place. How convenient for illegal aliens who want to vote to Obama!
Timed to coincide with the dedication of the made-in-Red-China [...]
An interview with a hispanic education advisor in the White House indicates an interesting combination of honesty and a sense of entitlement. Juan Sepulveda admits that hispanic students are at rock bottom of academic achievement (unlike other immigrant groups such as Asians who adapt readily to America’s education opportunities).
In fact, the hispanic education environment is [...]
On Monday, post-American President Obama appeared on the Spanish network Univision to chat and take questions from non-reporters. (I can’t remember the last time he had a town hall with Americans in English.)
Unsurprisingly, the subjects were illegal immigration and amnesty. In answer to a question about deporting illegal alien students, Obama replied, “We want them [...]
This story is a reminder that every state is a border state now. In Nashville, the traditional home of country music, 22 percent of the city’s K-12 students are English learners. Overwhelmed California has only slightly more, at 24 percent.
In addition, Nashville has had a problem with violent Kurdish gangs, as I wrote in 2007: [...]
It didn’t take long for the blond billionaire to flip-flop. In California’s gubernatorial primary, Meg Whitman (pictured with Sen. McCain) moved toward immigration enforcement because she had a pro-borders opponent in Steve Poizner, and she pledged to be “tough as nails.”
The immigration policy page on her campaign website promises that a Gov. Whitman would eliminate [...]
