    Border Blogging

    TUCSON, AZ: Folks in Washington think that they not only have all the answers, they think they don’t have to leave town to get them. They’re wrong. “Washington does not have all the answers.” There is no issue that that truism is truer for than understanding the challenge of securing … More

    Iraqi Progress Palpable

    Hardly a supporter of the decision to remove Saddam Hussein, The Christian Science Monitor reports today on “guarded optimism” in Iraq. Howard La Franchi writes: For a reporter last here a year ago, during perhaps the deepest of Iraq’s despair, there is a palpable change: visible in such mundane things … More

    Why Does the New York Times Shortchange Veterans and Their Families?

    Yesterday, the New York Times shamelessly politicized Memorial Day by publishing an editorial attacking President Bush and Sen. John McCain for not supporting Sen. Jim Webb’s (D-Va.) “Post-9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act.” The New York Times is free to criticize the president as much as it wants (we sure do) … More

    Thank You, American Soldiers

    Our friends at the Evergreen Freedom Foundation have produced an excellent video tribute to the men and women of the U.S. military who have sacrificed so much to preserve freedom in this country. [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y9hWrddLfPs[/youtube]

    Amnesty for Illegals First, Training for Troops Last ... Happy Memorial Day!

Case in point is Senator … More

    In a recent item on The Huffington Post, Bernard Finel argued that “analysts at the Heritage Foundation seem to want to politicize defense” policy by linking defense spending to four percent of America’s Gross Domestic Product. In Finel’s view, Heritage’s efforts are nothing more then a veiled effort to “creating … More

    Getting Serious About Subs

    New satellite images of a secret underground submarine base built by the Chinese and capable of hiding up to 20 nuclear submarines further stresses the need for the United States to get serious about China’s modernizing naval capabilities. Since the end of the Cold War China has built or acquired … More

    Some Immigrants Assimilate Faster Than Others

    The virulently pro-amnesty Washington Post was in full spin mode today trying to make the best out of a new Manhattan Institute study on the rates at which foreign-born populations assimilate into the United States. The headline for the story blares “Study Says Foreigners In U.S. Adapt Quickly” and the … More

    Is There Any Bite in Blue Dogs' Bark?

    As Heritage’s Michael Franc documents again today, the Democratic party is rapidly becoming a party of rich cultural elites: Through May 1, the Democratic presidential field has suctioned up a cool $5.7 million from the more than 4,000 donors who list their occupation as “CEO.” The Republicans’ take was only … More

    One Step at a Time

    According to an article on The Hill, lobbyists are now targeting smaller immigration bills. This strategy is the smarter approach. The U.S. immigration system touches on practically every aspect of the government, and involves many different competing interests that affect millions of American lives. Fixing immigration in one fell swoop … More
