A young, pregnant illegal immigrant, referred to only as Jane Doe, is revealing the intersection of disparate political issues. Doe is 17 years old and was pregnant when she crossed the border in September as an unaccompanied minor. Since crossing, she has been held in an immigration detention center in Texas, and while in detainment, […]


Earlier this week, in a seemingly absurd statement, Planned Parenthood’s president Cecile Richards wrote that “every person has the right to live.” Given the lethal work her organization does, her supposed defense of the right to life is laughably ironic. However, it all suddenly makes sense when the context of the entire quote is considered: […]


Sixteen left-wing activist attorneys general have filed one of the dumbest lawsuits in recent memory. Attorneys general from New York, Massachusetts, Washington, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Illinois, Iowa, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont and Virginia, and DC have filed a lawsuit to stop Donald Trump’s plan to phase out the Deferred Action […]


Immigration reform has come to the forefront of the American political conversation after President Trump announced on Tuesday that he would rescind former President Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, also known as DACA. In his statement on the issue, President Trump stated: As President, my highest duty is to defend the American people […]


From the moment he launched his presidential campaign two summers ago, Donald Trump has been a magnet for bad press. It started with those infamous lines on immigration from his announcement speech: “When Mexico sends their people, they’re not sending their best…”  Those comments earned Trump a tsunami of negative media attention as well as […]


On July 1, politicians in Oregon passed a bill that would force taxpayers to fund free abortions across the state — even for illegal immigrants. Oregon bill HB 3391, also known as the Reproductive Health Equity Act, requires health insurers to provide abortions free of charge, and specifically earmarks $500,000 of the 2017-2019 budget to […]


I normally skip the ads that play before online videos, but this one caught my attention. It was a clip of Bill Clinton giving a State of the Union address while he was president — and making an incredibly concise and eloquent case against illegal immigration. Based on the rhetoric, one would think one was […]


Country music legend Charlie Daniels isn’t exactly afraid of weighing in on politics. In a relatively unnoticed tweet — Breitbart News first covered it — Daniels argued that, if the Left thinks “sanctuary cities” should be able to defy federal law on immigration, the Right should do the same thing and create pro-life sanctuary cities. How […]


Congratulations, President-elect Trump. Congratulations to the historic, never-before-seen governing majority he assembled. It’s time to hope I was wrong and work for President Trump’s success — for America’s success. Here are my first six takeaways from last night’s historic victory: 1.) The RNC’s “Autopsy” from 2012 got it exactly wrong in arguing the key to […]


We reported earlier this week that Trump would be releasing his first TV commercial today. It’s pretty impressive. Narrator: “In Hillary Clinton’s America, the system stays rigged against Americans. Syrian refugees flood in. Illegal immigrants convicted of committing crimes get to stay, collecting Social Security benefits, skipping the line. Our border open. It’s more of the […]


Recently, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has been attempting to play both sides of the religious freedom debate. In an op-ed for Utah’s Deseret News, Trump wrote, “Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton have tried to undermine our religious liberties on the altar of political correctness. They have challenged the rights of businesses and religious institutions to […]


While it appears Utah is Ted Cruz’s to lose today, Arizona presents a unique challenge to his winning a GOP Primary Daily Double.  The weekend polling of likely primary voters Maggie cited showed a few surprises. Prior to this poll, there had been a dearth of new polling, leading many to believe that the race […]


Richard Viguerie’s newsletter just published this hard-hitting attack on John Kasich’s sudden immigration conversion: Ohio Governor John Kasich is, on the other hand, a late public convert to the cause of amnesty for illegal aliens, but he’s doing his best to surpass Rubio as he aims to be the replacement establishment candidate now that Rubio is […]


A slew of new polling is suggesting Marco Rubio’s strategic attacks on Ted Cruz for being insufficiently anti-immigration are a big mistake: Cruz is now leading Donald Trump in Iowa (40 percent to 31 percent, with Rubio lagging at 12 percent), and pulling into a strong (or rather clear) second in South Carolina (38 percent […]


Marco Rubio may have gained backing from the GOP’s biggest pro-same-sex marriage donor, but gay Republicans are increasingly getting behind a different – and surprising – candidate. According to Reuters, Donald Trump has been drawing accolades from the small, but vocal, number of Republicans who would like to see the party liberalize on marriage and other […]


Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio are locked in a battle to decide who will emerge as the alternative to Donald Trump. As we noted earlier, Rubio was the first to attack, running ads all but calling Cruz a liar and a national security risk, but Cruz is now counter-punching back, pointing to Rubio’s weak response […]


Yesterday, Russell Moore, president of the Southern Baptist Convention’s Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission, went on CNN to say that Donald Trump’s attacks on the core American value of religious liberty must be opposed by evangelicals: JOHN BERMAN: And, Russell, you are an evangelical, and you disagree with a lot of the tenets of Islam, […]


With 55 days remaining until the first-in-the-nation Iowa caucus begins to help sort out front-runners from also-rans, Senator Marco Rubio has signaled a significant shift in his campaign approach and begun trading paint with the now-surging Senator Ted Cruz. A Sunday, December 6, New York Times piece unpacks the new Rubio strategy, designed to blunt surging Cruz […]

Outsiders often respond to the critique that they are inexperienced by countering that the silver lining is their freedom from the problems of Washington.  “Sure, I’ve never been elected, but that’s why the people want me – I’m like them, I know what they’re like and what they want.”  That response falls apart for GOP […]


Senator Lindsey Graham aired his frustration with Speaker Paul Ryan yesterday, targeting Ryan’s promise not to push immigration reform until after President Obama leaves office: “Forget about working with Obama, just take up the bill and vote,” said Graham, pointing out that he’s helped craft three different comprehensive immigration reform bills that have passed the […]
