Terror In Antioch, Tennessee: A Politically Inconvenient Crime

While media talking heads and representatives of the NFL are busy prattling on about the “oppression” that blacks supposedly face on a daily basis in America 2017, there has scarcely been a peep about something that occurred just days ago in a little town in Tennessee called Antioch. When Dylan Roof, a young white man, shot up black congregants in a South Carolina church a few years back, there was not only wall-to-wall media coverage, but politicians at the state and federal levels, including the President and then-Governor Nikki Haley, who were quick to weigh in. Because photographs emerged that… Keep Reading

President Trump Tells Migrants To Stay Out, Slashes Number Of Incoming Refugees

During the presidential campaign, immigration was a defining issue for candidate Donald Trump. With bold pledges about rejecting refugees and building a big wall on the Mexican border, he was due to tackle immigration unlike any other President in recent history. As President, that has changed as Trump has struggled to match policy with his campaign promises in the midst of constant criticism. He has stood firm on his travel bans though, with battles raging all throughout the court system. It was something many opponents labeled as a Muslim ban, though he stood firm on the claim that it wasn’t.… Keep Reading

Trump’s Latest Travel Ban Targets Eight Countries With New Restrictions

Donald Trump has been voicing his opinions on professional football rather loudly these days, but he has not lost focus on the Presidency. To help fulfill his mandate of protecting Americans from foreign threats, Trump announced a new travel ban impacting foreign nationals in Chad, Iran, Libya, North Korea, Somalia, Syria, Venezuela and Yemen this weekend. “Making America Safe is my number one priority. We will not admit those into our country we cannot safely vet,” Trump said in a tweet released shortly after the details of the new restrictions were revealed Sunday night. The new restrictions will come into… Keep Reading

Netanyahu To Europe: “Secure Your Borders”

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was caught on a hot mic earlier this week calling upon Eastern European leaders to adopt tougher immigration policies to keep their nations secure, according to a report by the Times of Israel. Netanyahu stated that he believes in the free movement of goods, “but not people”. “Secure your borders. Secure your borders,” he said, repeating for emphasis. The Israeli leader stressed the effectiveness of border walls, noting that his nation had “blocked the border not only in Egypt but in the Golan Heights.” Keep Reading

Virginia Woman Gives Voice For North Korean Refugees To Speak Out Against Tyranny

While Democrats expend all of their firepower in trying to establish collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, a Virginia woman has been quietly performing the “duty” Democrats claim they organize for–giving voice to the repressed. The duty in question concerns a Virginia woman’s efforts in finding defectors from Stalinist North Korea and giving them a microphone in which to expose the horror of living in the infamously repressive regime. But for Suzanne Scholte, who heads the Defense Forum Foundation, the goal is not just to show the liberty-crushing methods of the North Korea regime; her mission is also to… Keep Reading

The European Migrant Crisis And Historical Amnesia: A Personal Testament From Austria

The migrant crisis has, like an uncontrolled blaze tumbling through a dense forest, left few parts of Europe untouched. Stories of refugees abounded even in the part of Austria known as Burgenland, where I resided for a week during my travels on the Continent back in January. I was staying with the great-granddaughter of my great-great-grandmother’s sister, who happened to live in the small town of Breitenbrunn. This was the same town from which my great-great-grandparents emigrated in the later half of the nineteenth century to the United States in search of a better life. Burgenland, as with much of… Keep Reading

Amid Soaring Asylum Requests, House Bill Would Give Amnesty To Venezuelan Illegals

A bipartisan bill introduced in the House of Representatives on Wednesday would give Venezuelan refugees and illegal immigrants a path to legal residency and eventual citizenship in the United States. The bill, called the Venezuelan Refugee Assistance Act, was introduced by Carlos Curbelo (R-FL) and Darren Soto (D-FL). The bill was cosponsored by Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL) and Debbie Wasserman-Schultz (D-FL). “For over a decade, thousands of Venezuelans were forced to flee the brutal Chavez dictatorship, and now, the situation has not improved under his hand-picked successor, Nicolas Maduro,” Curbelo said, citing the socialist government’s political violence. “This bill will allow Venezuelan nationals… Keep Reading

The New Colossus Criteria

When Emma Lazarus wrote The New Colossus in 1883 she may or may not have been aware that, 6,500 miles to the east in the Arabian Peninsula, the Al Saud were clashing with their bitter rivals, the al-Rashids from the city of Hayil. Things didn’t go well for the Al Saud and, consequently, they were driven from Ndaj into exile, eventually settling in Kuwait. It’s a fascinating story and perhaps Miss Lazarus would have agreed. Warring factions and power struggles aren’t unique to Islam. For centuries, bitter rivalries between the monarchical governments of Europe tormented the continent with near non-stop bloodshed.… Keep Reading

The Only Fair Immigration Policy? None At All

The immigration debate is one of contention, hurt feelings, and misinformation. Groups defending different approaches often use faulty knowledge and divisive rhetoric, all while ignoring important points being made by both sides. As a result, truth and basic moral principles are ignored — by everyone. Especially those who mean well. As explained by Mises Institute’s president Jeff Deist, national borders mark “the edge of a particular territory over which a political entity — a state — claims exclusive jurisdiction.” By definition, anything under the control of the state requires a border — physical or otherwise. Much like the market, where… Keep Reading

Today In History: United Nations

October 24, 1945 – The United Nations is founded in San Francisco as a very well-intentioned check against the excesses of failed states and colonial imperialism. The Weimar Republic, left to its own devices, had swept Hitler’s Nazi Party into power with a mere quarter of the popular vote. The fanatical regime of Premier Tojo bowled over the moderates in Japan, bringing the military to power with its intent to enslave the surrounding region in the name of the Empire. This recipe left the world ripe for the inevitable collapse into total war. The United Nations, we are told, must… Keep Reading
