Speaker Paul Ryan, Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, and Republican Whip Steve Scalise are all complicit and part of the problem. If we had a principled conservative Speaker, like Jim Jordan, conservatives would not be constantly given bad choices as the only alternatives to address our border security problems.

Conservatives are concerned that tech billionaire Tim Draper's proposal to split California into three states would put more Democrats in the U.S. Senate,  but there’s no constitutional requirement that all of the new jurisdictions be admitted as states. They could just as easily be admitted into association with the United States on the same basis as Guam or Palau are, thus adding no Democrats to the Senate.

It doesn’t take a genius to surmise the different peoples of the world all have distinct interests. Just because most of the planet sees the World Cup as the preeminent sporting event of our times doesn’t mean we must follow along. Thankfully Donald Trump knows to value Americans’ opinions first.

Conservatives in 1955 were restless, anxious to be heard, and had plenty of motivating issues.  But they lacked political and intellectual leadership.  That would soon come, with an outspoken Senator from Arizona and an articulate young author.  The stage was set in the 1950s for the birth of a new conservative movement, as we see in this excerpt from America’s Right Turn: How Conservatives Used New and Alternative Media to Take Power.

In an act of amazing political jujitsu, President Trump has defused the phony family separation crisis that the Left and their allies in the media and the cheap labor wing of the business community ginned-up to help them ram a Republican majority-destroying amnesty bill through Congress.

Until Republicans take the proverbial immigration bull by the horns they’re going to end up on the wrong end of the public narrative. The media will give the GOP no credit and Democrats will fan the flames of discontent with inflammatory statements of their own. Who will stand up?

If the GOP hopes to retain any shred of credibility on immigration, Capitol Hill Republicans need to keep their promises, starting with building the wall on our southern border before passing any bills to make illegal alien detention more like a summer camp than it already is.

The IG report is a blistering rebuke of James Comey, who has spent recent months on a book tour promoting his brand of “ethical leadership.” Now, Inspector General Michael Horowitz has confirmed that his office is investigating Comey for his handling of classified information.

Democrats have taken to predicting uprisings and championing illegal aliens because they don’t have anything else to offer Americans. The debate over whether the GOP is Trump’s party will continue – but unless his dis-loyal opposition comes up with something better, he’ll remain in control.

In 1955, liberalism reigned supreme over the politics of the United States.  If there is one lesson to be learned, however, it is:  Never despair, and never give up.  A new day was coming, as we see in this excerpt from America’s Right Turn: How Conservatives Used New and Alternative Media to Take Power.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions said it best: If you are smuggling a child, then we will prosecute you and that child will be separated from you as required by law. If you don’t like that, then don’t smuggle children over our border.

There’s no easy way to explain what’s wrong with Democrats these days; they’re wrong on policy, wrong on facts and wrong on personnel. There’s no telling how they’ll do in the midterm elections but even if successful they’re still in trouble. They’re a mess and don’t even realize it.

    The conquest and colonization of the New World and the creation of the United States and its rise to world power required acts of aggression and war of which many among our elites are ashamed. They exhibit their guilt by tearing down the statues of the men who perpetrated the "crimes" that created America. But of these elites, it may be fairly said: they could never have built a nation like ours.

    You can’t fool all of the people all of the time, and human beings tend to tire of constant crisis-mongering. Did you notice how most people kind of shrugged about the kids in cages thing? And did you notice how the Trump administration hasn’t stopped locking up illegals and recognizing Get Out of Jail Free Kids? That’s how you deal with Outrage, Inc. You ignore it, and watch it sputter and fade away.

  • George Neumayr, The American Spectator

    Strzok told his mistress that he wanted Hillary to beat Trump “100,000,000-0,” and that he would “stop” his victory. It appears that Strzok deleted the latter text, not realizing that his FBI device had stored it elsewhere, only to be excavated later by Horowitz’s Internet wizards. Hillary’s fiends in high places were hoist by their own petard, thereby revealing the most grotesque irony in the 2016 race: one government did most certainly and corruptly interfere in it — theirs.

  • Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

    If the IG report on the Clinton email scandal is any guide to these upcoming investigations, expect widespread abuse of the English language to warp reality. The media is using the antiseptic “informant” in place of the cruder but more accurate “spy” or “mole.” The off-putting but accurate “wiretapping” has become the more professional “surveillance.” The sanitized “improper” always sounds cleaner than the more accurate “illegal.” In sum, “2016” could make a logical sequel to “1984.”

  • Editors, Washington Examiner

    “Congress may legislate to address these problems if it deems it necessary and fit to do so,” Justice Anthony Kennedy wrote in his Wayfair opinion. Now that Wayfair is the law, Congress must do just that, as it has done previously in limiting the collection of certain state taxes. Using its power to regulate interstate commerce, Congress can create a new standard, or restore the old one, in black-and-white, replacing a less-certain judicial creation, and prevent state governments from burying the national market under a landslide of tax paperwork.

  • Ben Shapiro, CNS News

    This is the problem with unelected, unaccountable, nontransparent bureaucracies: They are subject to ideological perversion that they themselves may not even notice until it is too late. That's why they should be extraordinarily careful in how they wield power. Unfortunately, our law enforcement agencies aren't, and the result is a dramatic loss of trust that they can ill afford.

  • David Catron, The American Spectator

    The Bush family has a famously adversarial relationship with English. It became clear this week that at least one of them is also illiterate where U.S. history and immigration policy are concerned. The WW II Japanese internment camps were indeed “one of the most shameful episodes in U.S. history.” It occurred because a Democratic president signed Executive Order 9066, resulting in the illegal incarceration of 110,000 loyal Japanese Americans. This is consistent with that party’s long catalogue of racialist crimes. For Mrs. Bush to conflate that atrocity to the current border situation is utterly irresponsible.

  • Cal Thomas, Washington Times

    Democrats, whose policies have contributed to the separation of parents from children want us to believe they are overwhelmed with empathy at the sight of crying kids along our southern border. With so many good signs that the country is on the right track and with Mr. Trump’s approval rating at 45 percent, the highest it has been since the beginning of his term, Democrats and the major media have no other issue except the immigration issue, and it may be the Democrats’ last gasp — and last hope — before the November election.

  • Eddie Scarry, Washington Examiner

    Regarding Trump's executive order, what do you think will happen under the administration once the families are released and the parents are caught later because they didn’t show up for their court date, as happens, by some estimates, in about 40 percent of immigration-related court orders? What happens when detention facilities are stuffed beyond capacity because the families now can’t be split? The “crisis” was never the illegal immigrant separations. It was the illegal immigrants.

  • L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

    When the Justice Department inspector general released a report on the Hillary Clinton email scandal on June 14, it's not surprising that the network newscasts ignored any reference to Obama, who is certainly scolded in the report, including pages 66 to 69. As energetically as they create a persistent "crisis" for Donald Trump, they have put a protective bubble around their precious Obama. He can boast that he has no scandals because the "facts first" media have manufactured that false perception for 10 years.

  • David Harsanyi, The Federalist

    I’m a pretty liberal guy on immigration – open to more asylum seekers, bigger immigration, more temporary workers, etc. But I’m not a huge fan of chaos. And I suspect I’m not alone. It’s neither healthy for the country, nor the people who come here seeking a better life, to be thrown into a system that doesn’t work. Nor is it politically rational, as we increasingly see in Europe. Yet, we have Democrats and activists calling for the elimination of ICE. We have a Democratic Party unwilling to make any compromise on the issue. Sooner or later the situation becomes untenable.

  • Andrew C. McCarthy, National Review

    There is nothing in the statute that inflates “gross negligence” into a requirement that infractions be “so gross as to almost suggest deliberate intention,” be “criminally reckless,” or fall “just a little short of willful.” But even if there were, what could be more gross, reckless, and willful than imposing a non-secure private email system on the communications of the government’s highest-ranking national-security officials? Yet that is the aspect of Mrs. Clinton’s conduct that the Obama Justice Department and FBI decided not to factor into their consideration of intent evidence. And apparently, the IG had no problem with that.

  • Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

    That it has been miraculously discovered -- despite having  been going on for decades -- that children are being temporarily incarcerated on the border is a perfect example of that.  It's no accident this surfaced at the moment the FBI is under fire for the Clinton email investigation and the possibility the organization sought to sabotage the presidency of Donald Trump. So "immigration" is once again the stalking horse for everything but itself. It is a dumb show with the poor of Central America used as pawns.

  • George Neumayr, The American Spectator

    The toxic origins of the Mueller probe are impossible to expunge. His report will represent nothing more than the fulfillment of the “insurance policy” Strzok and his mistress discussed in Andrew McCabe’s office a few doors down from Comey’s — a plot to impeach Trump via harassing investigation if they couldn’t defeat him at the ballot box. The odor Strzok gives off is unmistakable too — and its rancidity will suffuse every page of Mueller’s report.

  • Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

    For all the investigations and IG reports, for all the revelations of scandals and wrongdoing, there will probably in the end be little consequence, simply because to those who matter, such illegality is seen as nobility. Many at the highest echelons of the FBI and DOJ broke laws. But Trump broke a far higher and far more important unwritten law — one forbidding any presidential candidate and future president to be and act like Donald J. Trump.
