So much for the open amendment process.

Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) initially promised he would change the direction of the House by allowing members to offer important amendments to pending legislation.  Last night, the Rules Committee, which serves as an arm of the Speaker’s office, rejected an amendment by Rep. Dave Brat (R-VA) and other conservatives that would have placed a six-month moratorium …

Over the past few decades, Israel has served as the harbinger for everything the Islamic jihad has wrought on western civilization.  The suicide bombings began there and have now become widespread throughout the world.  Now Israel is suffering from the most devastating form of terror – the ubiquitous threat of spontaneous stabbing attacks from Muslims living among them.

Well, it didn’t take long for the knife intifada to come to America, too.

Last Wednesday, 18-year-old Faisal Mohammad, in a scene …

The meeting today between Pakistan Prime Minister Sharif and President Obama at the White House is a continuation of a dangerous charade engaged in for decades by the United States. By perceiving Pakistan, a failed Islamic terrorist state, as a valuable strategic ally when it, in fact, has a blatant history of actions and circumstances to the contrary, the United States is pursuing a delusional foreign policy that further endangers American national security.

The meeting with Pakistan occurs …

true truth lie

This week, as Obama ratchets up his focus on releasing large numbers of felons from prison, Republicans are using the cover of the Benghazi hearing to push through a bill (S. 2123) that will codify Obama’s get out of jail free agenda.  For …

From Conservative Review:

As part of the first ship out to sea in the dangerous adventure of dismantling the two-decades of success in combating crime, the Senate will begin work this week on the “Sentencing Reform and Corrections Act of 2015” (S.2123), sponsored by Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) and 11 other Republicans and Democrats and heavily pushed by Senators Lee (R-UT), …

This week marks the 50th anniversary of the 1965 “Hart-Cellar” immigration act, commonly referred to as “the Kennedy Immigration bill.”  At the time, the bill was sold as a modest increase in immigration from the four decades of low immigration and some blatantly discriminatory policies. Americans were ensured that the bill would not fundamentally alter the character – political, social, or fiscal – of this country.  At the time, Rep. Patsy T. Mink (D-HI) estimated, on average, less …

Last night, there was time at the Republican presidential debate to discuss vaccinations and the ten-dollar bill but not a word was uttered about one of the most pressing issues – Obama’s imminent plan to bring in thousands of Islamic refugees from Syria.

Yesterday, the Obama administration announced that the plan to bring in 10,000 Syrian refugees next fiscal year …

“In 1814, we took a little trip, along with Colonel Jackson, down the mighty Mississip….”

Like any good student growing up in New Orleans, I learned about the magnificent victory of the U.S. forces over the British in the Battle of New Orleans during the War of 1812. Of course, the Treaty of Ghent ended the War of 1812 before the Battle of New Orleans was even fought. Many have argued that the battle …

By Daniel Horowitz

Yes, border fences work.  And that is exactly why the political class is so stridently intent on opposing the construction of a full double-layered fence or any effective barrier at the border.

The bipartisan open borders cartel is all in favor of discussing sundry forms of “border security,” especially if it will afford them the political cover to pass amnesty.  But the one tangible form of border security they will never support, and in fact, pull out all stops …

There is no issue that reveals a wider gulf between the conservative political insiders and average conservative voter (and many other voters, for that matter) than immigration.

There is something about the political swamp that transforms a number of alleged right-leaning political figures into leftists as it relates to this issue, arguably placing them squarely to the left of even many ordinary non-activist Democrat voters.  This was on display with full gusto this week during the growing debate over …
