Glenn to speak Wednesday in front of the U.S. Capitol
This Wednesday, June 19, in Washington D.C. there will be an open forum that will feature "border security, anti-amnesty members of Congress." The debate is slated for 9AM to 12PM and then again from 2PM to 5PM. In between, members of Congress will join with an already-planned Tea Party rally against the Internal Revenue Service's targeting of conservative organizations. Glenn will be joining the event and speaking at noon.
"There are 70 Republicans now in congress that we sent there," Glenn said. "They're standing up this week and they're about to be slaughtered." [...]
"There are many things I don't believe in anymore, and Washington is one of them. And I despise that city now. Because it has just become a symbol of corruption to me, a symbol of grotesque growth, where the rest of us are suffering in the rest of the country," he said.
"But I will go and stand, and I ask you to do the same."
Glenn has not asked people to attend an event like this in Washington, D.C. since Restoring Honor on August 28, 2010.

Fallen deputy's brother tracking down fugitive
Salem -- Father's Day will always be difficult for the family of Marion County Deputy Kelly Fredinburg. He was killed in the line of duty six years ago while responding to another officer in distress. -- The driver of a car that crossed the center line, causing a fatal head on collision is still on the run and is believed to be in Mexico. -- "Someone knows where he is and we have a $20,000 reward that is payable here or in Mexico," said Kevin Fredinburg, the brother of the fallen deputy...

Rubio, other Senate RINOs reject border fence proposal
Senators on Tuesday rejected building the 700 miles of double-tier border fencing Congress authorized just seven years ago, with a majority of the Senate saying they didn't want to delay granting illegal [aliens] legal status while the fence was being built. -- The 54-39 vote to reject the fence shows the core of the immigration deal is holding. The vote broke mostly along party lines, though five Republicans, including Sen. Marco Rubio and the rest of the bill's authors, voted against the fence...

Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach is calling for a criminal investigation after a huge mob of illegal alien supporters surrounded his private home Saturday and held a rally on his front porch. -- At least 200 members of Sunflower Community Action were bussed into Kobach's Kansas City-area neighborhood on Saturday -- to protest his staunch anti-illegal [immigration] views...
Latest news from NAFBPO
There was a striking moment in the Senate Judiciary Committee's debate on the Gang of Eight comprehensive immigration reform bill when Republican Jeff Sessions and Democrat Charles Schumer argued over the number of [illegal aliens] who would be allowed into the country under the new legislation. -- Sessions cited reports suggesting the figure would be more than 20 million over the next decade in addition to the 11 million or so who are already in the United States illegally...

Mark Krikorian: The provocateur standing in the way of amnesty
Mark Krikorian is tapping the earpiece of his glasses --- into the center of his right eye. -- Clink. Clink. -- "This eye doesn't track," he says by way of explaining his slightly distracted, far-off gaze. -- Clink. -- "It's fake," he says, his tapping drawing a quizzical glance from a neighboring table in Siroc, the demure downtown Washington restaurant. "It's a prosthesis. The guys who do it are called ocularists..."

Pro-amnesty stance not enough to earn Latino support
Sen. Lindsay Graham's (R-S.C.) absurd notion that Latino voters will flock to Republican candidates if they embrace amnesty and "comprehensive immigration reform" has been once more refuted, this time a Massachusetts special election to fill John Kerry's U.S. Senate seat. On Friday, El Planeta, the state's largest Spanish-language newspaper, endorsed Democrat Ed Markey, a long-serving member of the House...
Arpaio Death Threat: Arrest warrant issued for suspect over tweet
Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Maricopa County, Arizona, reportedly received a death threat from a man who said he wanted to "personally blow" his "head off." -- An arrest warrant was issued for 22-year-old Caesar David Nunez on Monday, MCSO spokesman Deputy Joaquin Enriquez told ABC15. -- "I want to personally blow Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio's head off," Nunez said in a Tweet in April, according to Enriquez. Nunez reportedly admitted he wrote the threat because he disagrees with Arpaio's stance on [illegal] immigration...
Obama's claims on illegal border crossings
We are always interested in even slight shifts in presidential rhetoric. What happened in the space of four months, so that the president's claim that illegal crossings were at a four-decade low was suddenly softened to the lowest level in "decades"? -- Let's take a look. -- When the president speaks of "illegal crossings," he is speaking of "illegal alien apprehensions." This is an imperfect metric...

Why government disinformation works
Have you ever wondered how government's misinformation gains traction? What I have noticed is that whenever a stunning episode occurs, such as 9-11 or the Boston Marathon bombing, most everyone, whether on the right or left, goes along with the government's explanation, because they can hook their agenda to the government's account...

Feds claim to be "plugging" Arizona border to illegals, who now are invading Texas
A surge in [illegal alien] traffic across the Southwest border into Texas has resulted in a milestone: the front line of the battle against illegal crossings from Mexico has shifted for the first time in over a decade away from Arizona to the Rio Grande Valley of South Texas. -- This shift has intensified a bitter debate under way in the Senate over whether the border is secure enough now, or ever will be, to move ahead with legislation...
Boehner: No way to get amnesty bill to House floor without GOP majority support
Under pressure from House conservatives opposed to comprehensive immigration reform, House Speaker John Boehner said Tuesday, "I don't see any way of bringing an immigration bill to the floor that doesn't have majority support of Republicans." -- Until now, Boehner has sidestepped questions about how he will move forward in the House on immigration reform and whether he would allow a vote on a bill that relied on Democrats to pass the GOP-controlled chamber...

Amnesty Must Be Defeated: How you can help
They're at it again. Our political elite (of both parties) is once again trying to ram through an amnesty of illegal aliens. As badly-managed as our current immigration system is, the amnesty proposal currently in Congress would make it even worse. -- It's officially titled "The Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act of 2013 (S. 744)" but it doesn't make our border more secure...

ICE allowed illegal alien charged with multiple child-rapes to return to Mexico
In 2009, Jose Adan Rico, 37, posted bail at the Dallas County Jail where he was being held on burglary as well as sexual assault charges for a pair of brutal child-rapes. -- The victims were ages 12 and 14. -- In fact, the Dallas police had already linked DNA evidence from the crimes to Rico and were understandably shocked to discover that U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials suddenly deported the suspected child predator back to Mexico before facing his punishment here...
Ted Cruz set to infuriate the Left with amnesty bill amendment
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) on Monday announced his intention to file another amendment to the so-called "gang of eight" immigration bill that is facing tough opposition from some GOP lawmakers. -- "I'll file amendment to immigration bill that permits states to require ID before registering voters & close this hole in [federal] statutory law," Cruz wrote via his official Twitter account.
Failed to pay taxes? Americans face jail time, illegals receive amnesty
One of the major talking points from the Gang of Eight before they released their "comprehensive" immigration reform bill was that amnestied illegal aliens would be required to pay back taxes in order to receive legal status ---- "registered provisional immigrant" (RPI) status. However, as many Americans now know, such a requirement is not actually contained in the 1,000 plus page bill...
Distrust Growing: 70% believe IRS decision to target conservatives was made in DC

The veiled anti-American sentiment of open borders politicians
When it comes to the issue of immigration, the open borders "right" has adopted the parlance, tactics, and ad hominem attacks that traditionally emanate from the left. They impugn the motives of those who desire strong border security and orderly/gradual immigration as racist. However, in recent days, it is they who have been exposed as individuals who harbor deep-rooted prejudges... against native border Americans.

Beware Obama's 'social innovation' slush fund for nonprofits
We all know now what the vengeful Internal Revenue Service under President Barack Obama has been doing to conservative nonprofits the past four years: strangling them in the crib. But do you know how much pampering and largesse far-left welfare-state charities have received while limited-government groups suffered? You don't know the half of it...
RINO Rubio aide says American workers "can't cut it"
This cannot stand, particularly if you want to run for President. Ryan Lizza is a liberal and has occasionally written about things he does not understand, i.e. Christianity, but Ryan Lizza doesn't make sh. . . tuff up. He's good. -- So when Ryan Lizza writes that a Rubio aide told him Senator Rubio had "sided with the Chamber against the construction workers," we have to take seriously that the aide to Senator Rubio really believes there are Americans who should, for lack of a better term, suffer the fate of natural selection...

Give me your wife beaters...
Byron York notes some of the shortcomings of the pending Gang of 8 bill's treatment of illegal [aliens] with criminal records: You're only blackballed when you are convicted of three misdemeanors --- an achievement, given the tendency of overworked prosecutors to accept misdemeanor pleas for felony charges. Even three misdemeanors can be waived by Janet Napolitano --- or whoever is Secretary of DHS --- "in the public interest." And you have to have been convicted of the misdemeanors on separate days...

Border Patrol: Rio Grande Valley sector seizes 8 tons of pot
Border Patrol agents seized close to 8 tons of marijuana in various seizures last week, according to a news release from the federal agency's Rio Grande Valley Sector. -- The largest seizure took place Thursday at the Falfurrias checkpoint when a K-9 alerted agents to a tractor-trailer that had 3,500 pounds of marijuana inside, according to the release.

The last strand of the last straw
The U.S. Supreme Court, otherwise known as "the black robed scoundrels," pulled apart the last strand of the last straw holding the Republic together when they handed down a decision today nullifying the new Arizona voter registration law. -- The rogue court ruled that in states where there are large numbers of illegal aliens a voter is not required by law to present documentation that he is, in fact, a citizen of the United States...

Who 'needs' immigrant labor?
One of the most common arguments for allowing more immigration is that there is a “need” for foreign workers to do "jobs that Americans won't do," especially in agriculture. -- One of my most vivid memories of the late Armen Alchian, an internationally renowned economist at UCLA, involved a lunch at which one of the younger members of the economics department got up to go get some more coffee...

Jeff Sessions calls the special interests behind the "Gang of Eight" immigration reform bill "masters of the universe. -- "They're in the glass towers and Wall Street, and they make money by the hundreds of millions of dollars," Sessions, who serves as the ranking member of the Senate Budget Committee, explained to The Daily Caller...
GOP trying to use Obamacare to derail Obama's amnesty monstrosity
After spending years unsuccessfully trying to overturn "Obamacare," Republicans are now attempting to use President Obama's landmark health-care reform law to derail his top second-term initiative --- a sweeping overhaul of the nation's immigration system. -- Conservatives in both chambers of Congress are insisting on measures that would expand the denial of public health benefits to the nation's 11 million illegal [aliens] beyond limits set in a comprehensive reform bill pending in the Senate...
Supreme Court strikes down Arizona law requiring proof of citizenship to vote
The Supreme Court on Monday struck down an Arizona law that requires people to submit proof of citizenship when they register to vote. -- The vote was 7-2. Justice Antonin Scalia, writing for the majority, said that a 1993 federal law known as the Motor Voter Act takes precedence over the Arizona law because of its requirement that states "accept and use" the federal voter registration form...
Deplorable amnesty scheme creates double standards
For those Americans who support the Senate immigration-reform bill from the Gang of Eight: Illegal aliens are not so-called "undocumented immigrants." Immigrants have legal residence, and illegal aliens do not have legal residence. Illegal aliens have documents --- fake documents, altered official documents or stolen identity documents of American citizens. -- The Senate immigration bill does not permit ICE agents to question illegal aliens as to the criminals or criminal organization that they paid to produce their false documents...
Famous Republican unloads on RINO Marco Rubio
Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, R-Calif., is ripping Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., and other Republicans for facilitating the Democratic approach to immigration reform and deceiving the American people about what's in the legislation. -- Rubio stated repeatedly in recent weeks that effective border security was essential to getting his vote for the final version, despite his role in drafting the original bill. Earlier this week, however, Rubio told a Univision audience, in Spanish, that the effort to legalize the millions of illegal [aliens] in the U.S. was the top priority...

Loyola University Chicago's medical school is accepting applications from immigrants living in the country illegally and is now openly recruiting. -- The Loyola's Stritch School of Medicine said it made the decision in part because it wants to foster diversity in the U.S. medical workforce.
