Arizona Leading The March Back To Sovereignty

May 28, 2010 by


By Peter Huessy Arizona’s new immigration law is a copy of a 1940 Federal statute requiring non-citizens to show their papers. It allows local and state law enforcement to join in the fight to stop illegal immigration. Open border advocates are opposed. So-called civil libertarians are aghast. Why? It is simple. If local and state […]

Why Parents Don’t Trust The Educator-In-Chief And His Comrades

September 5, 2009 by


By Michelle Malkin They think we’re crazy. “They” are the sneering defenders of Barack Obama who can’t fathom the backlash against the president’s nationwide speech to schoolchildren next Tuesday. “We” are parents with eyes wide open to the potential for politicized abuse in America’s classrooms. Ask moms and dads in Farmington, Utah, who discovered this […]

Don’t Cry For Me, Venezuela

August 9, 2009 by


Satire by  Shawn Goodwin Forget Argentina, there is a new Broadway heroine on the block: and her name is Venezuela.

Don’t Call it A Coup Barack!

July 2, 2009 by

Obama, Chávez, and Castro – Three of a Kind?

May 11, 2009 by


Gabriel Garnica, Esq. Frankly, I was a bit surprised by all the hoopla over Barack Obama’s friendly exchange with Hugo Chávez at the Americas Summit.
