Look Who’s Arriving on the NAFTA Train

phyllis-schlafly3By Phyllis Schlafly 

Americans have been aghast at the sight of unending waves of people, ranging in age from babes in arms to tough tattooed teenage young men. The trip north is no joyride, riding on the top of moving freight   Train of Death3b cars for hundreds of miles, preyed on by bandits. Those who take this harrowing trip call it La Bestia (the Beast) or the Train of Death.

How were these desperately poor people able to travel the distance of over a thousand miles from their homes in Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador to the U.S. border?   Continue Reading.

cornyn-flagBy Sen. John Cornyn

Over the past several months, 10′s of 1,000′s of unaccompanied minors – almost all of them from Honduras, Guatemala, El Salvador, or Mexico — have been detained at our southern border while crossing illegally into the United States. A large percentage have been found in the Rio Grande Valley region of South Texas.

Sadly, this ongoing humanitarian crisis is very much a man-made crisis. More specifically, it is a direct result of President Obama’s misguided immigration policies.   Continue Reading.

NBC’s Cognitive Dissonant Hack Syndrome


What’s the matter with David Gregory? And why don’t people like to watch him?

michelle-malkinBy Michelle Malkin

According to The Washington Post recently, NBC News hired a “psychological consultant” to examine why flailing “Meet the Press” moderator David Gregory has been bombing in the ratings. The overpriced  nbc's David Gregory3c shrinks (NBC prefers the euphemism “brand consultants”) came from the New York-based brand fixer-upper Elastic Strategy.

I could have saved the honchos at NBC News a lot of time, and trouble.     Continue Reading.

Monica’s Emancipation Proclamation


By Debra J. Saunders

debra-saunders“It’s time to burn the beret and bury the blue dress,” Monica Lewinsky, now 40, writes in a Vanity Fair essay due for digital release today. All I can say is: You go, girl.

The 1998 revelation of L’Affaire Lewinsky and its fallout should have made one thing clear to American women. Forget “You’ve come a long way, baby.” When husbands cheat, the other woman usually ends up the odd man out. Continue Reading.

By George F. Will

george-will3After the marshal on Monday spoke the traditional “God save the United States and this honorable court,” the Supreme Court ruled that the Upstate New York town of Greece does not violate the First Amendment’s prohibition of “establishment of religion” by opening its board of supervisors’ meetings with a prayer. This ruling would not have scandalized James Madison and other members of the First Congress, which drafted and sent to the states for ratification the First Amendment and the rest of the Bill of Rights. The Congress did this after hiring a chaplain. Continue Reading.

What’s Left in the Media? Almost Everything


By Quin Hillyer

Texas Insider Report: AUSTIN, Texas – When study after study (please Google it) shows that obscenely high percentages of “mainstream” journalists consistently vote for Democratic presidential candidates over Republican ones, and that journalists particularly tend to hold organized religion and its values in high disdain, it is no wonder that conservatives feel aggrieved.   Continue Reading.

By U.S. Sen. John Cornyn

‘America’s obligation to her veterans isn’t just a legal one; it’s a moral one.’

Cornyn0114Texas Insider Report: WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today in America veterans are dying — not at the hands of a foreign enemy but through the neglect of the very country they served.

Obama Blows off Deals With GOP, Creating Era of Bad Feelings


By Michael Barone

Michael BaroneSecond-term presidencies are an opportunity for bipartisan compromise. The institutional stars are in alignment to address long-range problems not amenable in other circumstances.

The president is barred from running for a third term and thus does not have to worry about his next campaign. In Congress, members of the president’s party, with some reason to fear losses in the off-year election, may be willing to compromise before their bargaining leverage weakens. Continue Reading.
