Useful Idiots No More

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

The Trump administration is pulling the plug on the official Islamophilia of the last administration, which the New York Times seems to think went swimmingly. Remember the glory days when Obama was inviting the Muslim Brotherhood to his speeches, his attorney general was banning any mention of Islamic terrorism, and his CIA director was sanitizing jihad as a “legitimate tenet of Islam”? Apparently, we’re supposed to tremble at the thought that this period has passed.

Trump should mean business on immigration

Editors, Washington Examiner

If Trump wants to fight for the forgotten man, he will rebuff requests to expand guest-worker programs. He will, rather, scrap the guest-worker program for low-skilled workers, and also totally overhaul the high-skilled guest-worker program.

Christian Refugees Merit Priority Status

Bill Donohue, CNS News

Should Christian refugees be given priority status? Absolutely. There is one overriding reason: they are the most persecuted people on earth. It is not compassionate to treat every religion equally when the distribution of the victims of religious persecution, and the reasons for it, are so egregiously unequal.

No borders. No nations. No clue.

John Moody, Fox News

The United States allows a great deal of leeway for protest and disagreement. Those who disagree with the president’s executive order have taken full advantage of those rights, and rightly so. But their argument that the United States, alone among all countries, cannot restrict who comes in from beyond its shores is, quite simply, specious.

What a Wall Says to the World

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

President Trump’s wall is a statement to the world: this is our country. We decide who comes here. And we will defend our borders. The crisis of our time is not that some Americas are saying this, but that so many are too paralyzed to say it, or do not care, or embrace what is happening to their country.

Obama: The Arrogance of Failure

President Obama is the most unaccomplished man to ever hold the office and has been given an eight-year free pass and never held to account for his failures; while Donald J. Trump hasn't even been sworn in and is already a human pinata for the snowflake right and the radical left.

Immigration hawks seek reinforcements in Trump administration

W. James Antle III, Washington Examiner

Border security hawks have been lobbying Trump's team to hire an "immigration czar" who would coordinate policy on this issue across multiple Cabinet-level departments and agencies. One person whose name keeps coming up to be immigration czar is Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, a Republican who has molded legislation to get tough on illegal immigration in multiple states, most notably Arizona.

Why Building the Wall Should Not Be Trump’s No. 1 Immigration Priority

Mark Krikorian, National Review

There are two parts of any effective immigration-enforcement plan that are more important than either the Mexican border or criminal-alien removals: turning off the jobs magnet and ensuring that lawful foreign visitors actually go home when their authorized time is up.

Attorney General Loretta Lynch And The Suicidal Demand For “Tolerance” Of Islam

Attorney General Loretta Lynch chose a very bizarre place to deliver the message of “tolerance” for Islam, the anti-constitutional movement for world domination that masquerades as a religion, because the All Dulles Area Muslim Society is one of the epicenters of Islam’s attack on America.

Labor secretary pick seen as anti-Trump on immigration

W. James Antle III, Washington Examiner

Andrew Puzder's nomination plays into immigration hawks' fears, even though Trump just this week publicly reaffirmed his support for key restrictionist positions, including cutting legal immigration to "hundreds of thousands" per year from the current 1 million or more.

Will GOP Congress Stop Obama’s Final Terrorist “Refugee” Deal?

We urge CHQ readers to call Congress (the Capitol Switchboard is 1-866-220-0044) to tell your Senators and Representative to oppose funding Obama’s plan to import more jihad to America through the “refugee” resettlement program.

The Moral Case For Trump's "America First" Agenda

Memo to the rest of the planet: Stop panicking over the victory of Donald Trump.  His “America First” agenda is not about abandoning the free world.  If anything, it is about saving the free world—from itself.

In Defense of Steve Bannon and Relevant Conservatism

Driving Steve Bannon from public life is the endgame of the Left, and some in the Republican establishment, because he’s made conservatism again relevant to the concerns of working America, exposed the lies and smug elitism of the ruling class and in the process built a winning coalition to strip them of power.
