Well, someone must be complaining about the DREAM Act amnesty, because Dick Durbin has now filed off some of its more egregious burrs in the latest attempt to get it attached to the defense authorization bill. The new iteration has an age cap, allowing only those under the age of 30 to lie about sneaking into the U.S. before the age of 16. Also, it would eliminate the (never-enforced) provision barring states from offering in-state tuition to illegals, which wouldn’t really matter since the students would be getting green cards in any case, thus qualifying for in-state tuition like any other legal resident. Other than that (and a new number: SA 2919), it seems to be the same amnesty mess as before. It’s not clear whether these minor changes will increase support for the amnesty: the Washington Times story I linked to above has Sen. Cornyn saying it’s not going to survive, but also has Sen. Graham sounding like he could vote for it, despite the fact that Numbers USA’s whip list has him down as a definite No.
Using “white men” as a putdown is no longer extreme enough for the Left. Now it is moving on to doing the same for “white women.” How rapidly this transpired. It was less than two years ago that the approximately 98.7 percent of white women working in media who were openly rooting for Hillary Clinton ... Read More
Do you want to know what media bias looks like? Earlier today, Massachusetts senator Elizabeth Warren released DNA test results that confirmed that she misled employers, students, and the public about her Native American heritage for years. Bizarrely, all too many members of the media treated the results as ... Read More
We were not supposed to have made it this far. George Orwell saw night descending on us in 1984. Orwell was, on paper, a radical, but in his heart he was an old-fashioned English liberal. He dreamed of socialism but feared socialists. He feared them because he knew them. I was in the sixth grade in 1984, but I ... Read More
The Boston Globe mistakenly overstated Senator Elizabeth Warren's Native American ancestry in a Monday report detailing a gene test the Massachusetts lawmaker underwent to substantiate her previous claims to Native American heritage. The ancestry report indicates that Warren is anywhere between six and ten ... Read More
Dear Reader (Even those of you who didn’t seem to notice or care that I failed to file this “news”letter on Friday), So I’m sitting here at Gate C6 at O’Hare waiting for my flight home. I am weary, pressed for time, in desperate need of a shower, and filled with a great sense of dread for the work ... Read More
Through much of the last month, the American people have been treated to a version of the emotional and ideological argument that’s dominated the American academy for much of the last ten years. The argument goes something like this: Women rarely lie about rape. Thus, the failure of criminal or civil justice ... Read More
Hillary Clinton insisted that the sexual-assault allegations against her husband are nothing like the accusations that have been levied against Brett Kavanaugh -- suggesting that Bill’s accusers are not examples of victims who must be believed as part of the #MeToo movement. “There’s a very significant ...
