Building a Wall Is Not an Immigration Solution

The Wall Street Journal reports this week that a State Department technology failure has halted the issuing of temporary and immigrant visas, a setback which is having major ramifications for American farmers: “It’s a crisis,” said Jason Resnick, general counsel for the Western Growers Association, which represents farmers in California, Arizona and Colorado. He said that more than 1,000 workers who expected H-2A agricultural visas are stuck on the Mexican side of the border, where motels are overflowing. The workers are overdue to start harvesting berries and other crops on U.S. farms. Mr. Resnick estimated that California agriculture, already stressed by drought,

Trump: I’m Pro-Life

To the surprise of many, Donald Trump is an official candidate for the 2016 Presidential nomination. In the lead up to his announcement, Trump has stated, “[b]elieve me, if I run and I win, I will be the greatest representative of the Christians they’ve had in a long time.” So, naturally, on the issue of life, Trump touts his credentials as a pro-lifer. LifeNews has gathered a sampling of Trump’s statements on life: “I’m pro-life and I have been pro-life,” Trump says. “It’s an issue and a strong issue.” … “If you look at it, I said, ‘It really, really troubles

Eight Presidential Candidates with Trump Hair

This week’s sign of the apocalypse: Donald Trump is officially running for President. So we wondered — what if all the candidates had the Donald’s unique sense of style? Here are 8 presidential candidates with Trump hair. Enjoy! 1.) Ted Cruz 2.) Rand Paul 3.) Scott Walker 4.) Marco Rubio 5.) Jeb Bush 6.) Carly Fiorina 7.) Mike Huckabee 8.) Hillary Clinton

These Five Candidates Can Absolutely Beat Hillary

Wow, this is a great time to be a conservative. We have a strong, diverse field in the Republican presidential primary. We are having a meaningful national discussion about important issues like education, immigration, and the economy. And now it looks like we have a very beatable opponent in Hillary Clinton. According to a recent Gallup poll, Hillary’s unfavorable rating is skyrocketing, now up to 46 percent. That’s a problem for the Democrats, and Hillary isn’t helping matters. She’s stumbled on the campaign trail. She won’t talk to the press. She can’t connect with everyday Americans. And don’t forget—she’s become

Is Trump In or Out?

We’ve never had a billionaire president. In fact, the closest we’ve gotten was Ross Perot in 1992. Although, every couple of election cycles, Donald Trump seems to flirt with the idea of running. However, it seems that during this cycle, Trump has gotten closer to becoming an official candidate than he ever has in the past. In the words of the Donald himself: Trump: I’m the most successful person ever to run for president. I mean, off the record, Ross Perot isn’t successful like me. Romney was — I have a Gucci store that’s worth more money than Romney. Hafner:

The Trump Bump in New Hampshire

A new New Hampshire poll shows a wide open race—and a Trump surge to 8 percent in the poll, just a few points behind the “leaders” Walker and Paul (at 12 percent) and ahead of Cruz and Christie. Trump has announced he will be making a major announcement June 16, and then he will head for New Hampshire, where has already hired campaign staff and unveiled a 17-member leadership council. He’s going for blunt and pugnacious, promising “total victory” over ISIS. His message seems to be: “I’m a big strong Alpha guy, and I will fight for your interests. The

Trump, the Anti-Romney?

Mary, I get your point. But watching Trump in Florida gloriously revel in attacking Fiorina, Bush, and Rubio as ‘losers’ brought a weird smile to my face. We have never seen anything like this billionaire TV celebrity running to be Da Boss of the United States. He says it’s hard for him to criticize his fellow Republicans as the losers they are, because he likes these folks. But, “They don’t have it. . . It’s not going to happen folks. They’re not doing what I do. I do it better than anyone else.” After the Romney 47 percent debacle, its

Taking Trump Seriously

If you like listening to the conventional wisdom echo-chamber, Donald Trump is at the bottom of the GOP pack. If you want to see what I mean Google “Trump” and “carnival barker” to see how many left-wing and mainstream media hits come up. While it’s not easy to see a path for Trump, for a nation that elected an untried senator in the middle of an economic crisis in 2008, it’s dumb to make assumptions like that about a self-made man of Trump’s accomplishments. True, the WSJ/NBC News poll found that just 23 percent of Republican primary voters could see
