Stop celebrating illegal immigrants and arrest them already

Washington Examiner, April 30, 2018

President Trump has unabashedly lambasted the caravan of illegal immigrants who traveled from Honduras through Mexico to the U.S. border, ostensibly to seek asylum in America.

Trump’s bombast is precisely what this country needs to confront the mentality and ideology that celebrates illegal immigration.

From a former Oakland resident: Trump is right, the mayor is a disgrace

Washington Examiner, March 16, 2018

Last week, President Trump referred to the mayor of Oakland, Calif., Libby Schaaf, as a “disgrace,” and condemned her for spitting at federal efforts to enforce immigration laws. As a former resident of Oakland, I agree with the president.

I grew up in inner-city Oakland and hated it with a passion. Among other things, I hated the regular breakdown of law and order as well as the city’s casual disregard for the well-being of law-abiding citizens.

Schaaf’s recent rhetoric and actions offer the entire country a glimpse of Oakland’s recurring dysfunction.

Marion Marechal-Le Pen’s surprising conservative message

Washington Examiner, March 2, 2018

When French politician Marion Marechal-Le Pen strode onto the stage at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference last Thursday, most conference attendees likely had little or no idea who she was.

There were lots of empty seats in the grand ballroom, where the main events of the conference took place. It was early afternoon, and many of the day’s attendees were still at lunch. Of those in attendance, some were dozing off.

Then the striking young woman delivered a most captivating message.

To open up to the outside, you must have a solid core. To welcome, you have to remain. To share, you must have something to offer. Without nation and without family, the limits of the common good, natural law, collective morality disappears as the reign of egoism continues.

Among other things, she was referring to the failures of the European Union and the French government: Her government had bequeathed sovereignty to Brussels, and as a result, her fellow countrymen lost a certain amount of independence to choose their own laws and own destiny, especially on issues like mass migration.

Her words echoed President Trump’s immigration rhetoric, and he often said on the campaign trail, “We either have a country or we don’t.”

Donald Trump does “The Snake”

Washington Examiner, February 26, 2018

Shortly before President Trump’s appearance at the Conservative Political Action Conference last Friday, his administration announced a new set of severe sanctions on North Korea.

When Trump got on the stage at CPAC, he talked about a wide range of issues, including his hair, CPAC’s perception of him as insufficiently conservative during the presidential election of 2016, his administration’s accomplishments (regulatory reform, tax cuts, and confirming Justice Neil Gorsuch for the Supreme Court), the recent massacre in Parkland, Fla., and the need to defend Americans from violent criminals and reform the immigration system.

But about an hour into the president’s speech, he still had not said anything about the sanctions on North Korea.

Then President Trump did “The Snake.”

Just like at a concert, the rock star was doing this by request. As the president recounted, “When I walked in today….I had five people outside say, ‘Could you do “The Snake”?'”

Dear intellectual elites: Sovereignty is what ‘America First’ foreign policy is all about

Washington Examiner, October 11, 2017

Sovereignty is a concept that lies at the heart of President Trump’s “America First” agenda. Recently, it has emerged with greater force and clarity. Yet with a few exceptions, the policy establishment does not have the slightest clue what it means.

Most intellectual elites had no idea what the Trump political revolution of the 2016 election meant either. Some, including many Never Trumpers, have continued to pretend they can explain Trump to the masses with great authority, while others foam at the mouth at his every utterance and action.

Certainly, self-styled “smart people” are entitled to remain within their own bubbles and talk only to people who confirm their worldviews. For those who actually wish to understand the world better, the emergence of sovereignty as a more cogent governing concept in the Trump administration is a fascinating development.
