Victor Davis Hanson: An Inconvenient Law

 There is a humane, transparent, truthful — and constitutional — way to address illegal immigration. Unfortunately, President Obama’s unilateral plan to exempt millions of residents from federal immigration law is none of those things.  Obama said he had to move now because of a dawdling Congress. He forgot to mention that there were Democratic majorities […] Read More →

Some in US illegally could get retirement benefits

 Many immigrants in the United States illegally who apply for work permits under President Barack Obama’s new executive actions would be eligible for Social Security and Medicare benefits upon reaching retirement age, according to the White House.

Nancy Pelosi Trolls John Boehner on Twitter for His Birthday… And Gets Shut Down

 Yesterday was the 65th birthday of the marvelously tanned Speaker of the House, John Boehner.

Social Security: The Forgotten Crisis

Kevin Glass  In President Obama’s first term, Republicans made a lot of hay by pointing out that our entitlement programs are on an unsustainable path, and that argument was supported by the Simpson-Bowles bipartisan commission to fix the long-term deficit. In Obama’s second term, other, more immediate crises have arisen. But entitlements still loom large […] Read More →

Michelle Malkin: Jose Antonio Vargas: The Face of the Entitled Illegal Alien

 They’ve blown it again, big time. They just can’t help themselves. During the Bush years, the open-borders movement won over bleeding hearts in the White House but alienated the American public with radical displays of La Raza (“The Race”) militancy, desecrated American flags and Che Guevara shirt-wearing, fist-thrusting marches across the country.

Kennedy famously said, “A rising tide lifts all boats.” But it sure helps if you own a boat. In this case, the “boat” would be the dynamic American stock […] Read More →
