by Warner Todd Huston An immigration expert has testified that Obama’s loose border security policy has become an avenue for violent gangs — like MS-13 and the 18th Street Gang — to send foot soldiers across the border, causing a major rise in murder rates in cities across the country. Jessica Vaughan, the policy director for the Center for Immigration Studies, testified before a House hearing on the border surge and said Obama’s open-door policy has caused a hike in both murder and violent crime. Testifying before the February 4 hearing, Vaughan said, “Established gangs have been able to transfer… View Article

Obama Uses Mosque Speech To Subordinate All Religion To The State

by Neil Munro When President Barack Obama visited a fundamentalist mosque in Baltimore on Feb. 3, he flattered his Islamic audience, smiled cheerfully and then rhetorically flattened the constitutional and cultural walls that protect competing religious beliefs from the progressively expanding federal government. Robert Spencer, an expert on Islamic ideology and a best-selling author, says Obama’s condescending comments about Islam and all religions reveal his corporatist view of society, in which all elements of society — religion, industry, unions, family, education — are subordinated and coordinated by government officials.

Frosh (D)–who supports the “assault weapons” ban–criticized the ruling, saying that “the majority” on the 4th Circuit “got it wrong.” Frosh added, “I think it’s just common sense that the Second… View Article

By Paul Bedard (@SecretsBedard) Criminal networks with Latin American roots, such as MS-13 and the 18th Street gang, are using the administration’s open-door policy at the border to slip in recruits that are causing a huge spike in murder and violence throughout the nation, according to an immigration expert.

Thanks for visiting Alberta Prime Minister. But what, exactly, is the point?

After watching Justin Trudeau pose for a photo op with Premier Rachel Notley in the rotunda of the Edmonton legislature, I was left with one question: What, exactly, was the purpose of the spectacle? Trudeau deserves points for making the trip to Alberta and actually deigning to meet with the premier – certainly Stephen Harper never…
