Auf Wiedersehen, Angela!

It seems every time European elites get a good laugh out of a presidential tweet, sooner rather than later, the joke is on them. In June, President Trump, though without the caps-lock and employing just one exclamation mark, tweeted that “the people of Germany are turning against their leadership,” as Merkel’s open-borders policy

Progressives Have Arrived at Their Veruca Salt Moment

Progressives have finally lost patience with the American people. Until recently and on the whole they have been remarkably patient. From their beginning over a century ago, they have been quite far-sighted, keeping their eyes on the prize, always advancing their agenda while at the same time being careful not to unnecessarily alarm

Caravan Contradictions

A “caravan”—the euphemism for a current foot-army of more than 10,000 Central Americans—of would-be border crossers has now passed into Mexico. The marchers promise they will continue 1,000 miles and more northward to the U.S. border, despite warnings from President Trump that as unauthorized immigrants they will be turned away. No one has

Only Congress Can Prevent the Next Border Surge

A thousand miles or so from the southern U.S. border, Central American migrants are on the march. What began with around 5,000 people has swelled to as many as 14,000—and possibly more. They have traveled on foot approximately 500 miles so far, walking through immigration checkpoints in Honduras, Guatemala, and Mexico with minimal

Because We Live Here

What surges toward the United States from the south is not a “caravan,” it is an invading force. Mothers who take money from leftist activists to drag their children on for thousands of miles in front of cameras are not brave, they are mercenary. Men who tear apart metal barriers and cry, “Donald

The Caravans Cometh, Making America Great No More

The latest “caravan” community planning to crash borderless America is not part of Latin America’s problems; it’s escaping them. So say America’s low-IQ media. And Latin America’s problems are legion. The region, “which boasts just eight percent of the world’s population, accounts for 38 percent of its criminal killing.” Last year, the “butcher’s

Midterm Optics Are Bad for Progressives

For progressives, the looming midterm elections apparently should not hinge on a booming economy, a near-record-low unemployment rate, a strong stock market and unprecedented energy production. Instead, progressives hope that race and gender questions overshadow pocketbook issues. The media is fixated on another caravan of foreign nationals flowing toward the United States from

Illegal Immigration Hurts Black Americans Most

In the 19th century, savvy American saloon-owners offered free lunches to attract noontime patrons. Inevitably, the diners would get thirsty and buy expensive drinks—thus was born the expression, "there's no such thing as a free lunch." Despite its humble origins, the phrase captures a deep and omnipresent truth: everything has a price, an
