Tom Tancredo is fighting cancer. If you are a believer in God and country, please join me in prayer for a dear friend, mentor and patriot. While I cannot offer any comfort from his physical pain and suffering, I will do what I can with my words to lift up his indomitable spirit. Three modern... Read More
Last we heard from former Bush speechwriter-turned-Washington Post line columnist Michael Gerson, he was attacking Tea Party activists and yours truly for criticizing his old boss/mentor Karl Rove's Christine O'Donnell-bashing. See: Rove aide: Kneel before The Architect, you puny website operators & Tea Party ingrates. Well, Rove's Beltway water boy took to his WaPo perch... Read More
It ain't over 'til it's over, but the Eastern MSM is projecting that Soros mini-me John Hickenlooper will win the Colorado gubernatorial race. WaPo reporting with 10 percent of precincts in: Denver Post: Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper took the early lead in the Colorado governor's race as the first returns came in tonight. Hickenlooper was... Read More
Amen, amen, amen: "It is better to be an outsider than to compromise your principles."
True diversity on campus.
GOP Rep. Tom Tancredo answers the pseudo-call of the University of Colorado at Boulder for a conservative professor. I like it. Har: More at RMN.
Two Americas.
Your lunchtime viewing today: Rep. Tom Tancredo read my column about Michelle Obama's lack of American pride on the House floor yesterday afternoon. What an honor!
Update 6pm Eastern. Much, much more at HA, plus video. Update 4:35pm Eastern. Tancredo tells Cavuto that Romney's immigration plan is "viable, that he'll stick with it, and that he has the best shot." Update 3:10pm Eastern. A source tells me Tancredo has endorsed Romney. Still checking. Yep. More from the Des Moines Register: And... Read More
Tom Tancredo's retiring from the House at the end of the year, but not from public and political life. He was pressing for border security and immigration enforcement long before many of the fairweather GOP proponents and TV talking heads made it their ratings-friendly cause. I've had the privilege of speaking with him and beside... Read More
Tom Tancredo gets a surprising standing ovation.
Rep. Tom Tancredo, one of my favorite Republicans, was the lone GOP presidential candidate who showed up at a NAACP presidential forum. The Detroit Free Press reported: Unfortunately, Tancredo makes the mistake of assuming that NAACP
Jihadists and hardline Hindus are burning Valentine's Day cards to protest the West today. It's an annual rite. Anti-Israel protesters are protesting V-Day flower sales in the UK. Kathleen Parker takes on Eve Ensler: Will you be my vagina-tine? NRO's Valentine's Day symposium asks a group of politics lovers who their one true is (or... Read More
Jim Hoft thinks there might be disruptions from the balcony. Brit Hume says Nancy Pelosi put on a new outfit for her historic moment at the last minute because she spilled chocolate on her suit. Madame Speaker Hang in there, Dick Everything's already anticlimactic from here. The full SOTU text is up--and so is Democrat... Read More
Shutting down speech Well, I hope all you open-borders folks are proud of how your young acolytes in academia conduct themselves. They rushed the stage at Columbia University to shut down Minutemen Project co-founder Jim Gilchrist. They briefly disrupted MP co-founder Chris Simcox's speech at Georgetown by pulling a fire alarm. And last night, they... Read More
I'm hanging it up for the night, er, morning. Unlike Michael Moore in 2004, however, I will not be staying in bed for three days in a catatonic state. I will not need PEST shock therapy. I will not move to Australia. A moonbat reader e-mailed a taunt earlier this evening: The GOP lost. Conservatism... Read More
11pm EDT update: Video highlights of tonight's O'Reilly Factor in which I try to make O'Reilly see the light here. 1030pm EDT update: The only good thing about watching the speech was getting to watch it in the Fox News green room with Colorado GOP Rep. Tom Tancredo, a stalwart immigration enforcement advocate. It was... Read More
Here we go again. President Bush is continuing the homeland security dog-and-pony charade in his quest to deliver a massive "guest worker"/amnesty plan to the open-borders lobby. A few weeks ago, Bush's Department of Homeland Security put on a bogus performance of Get Tough Theater with a series of politically timed immigration raids...which, as I... Read More

Remind me again which party has the majority in the U.S. Senate? Via Reuters: Can you spell c-a-v-e-i-n? President Bush, the GOP elite, and the open borders lobby can deny it until they're all blue in the face, but the Senate "compromise" on immigration and border security is the dictionary definition of "amnesty." Amnesty is... Read More
***scroll for updates...Bush warns against stoking anti-immigrant feelings. Wants a "civil debate." Video here...Ok. Tell that to the divisive militants below...*** As Mickey Kaus points out, the reporters at the Los Angeles Times (and all other major media, for that matter) have downplayed the radical ethnic separatism that characterized the pro-illegal immigration rallies over the...

Paging the Department of Homeland Security. Hello? Hello?! *New* via the San Diego Union Tribune : Two tons of pot found inside Mexico-U.S. border tunnel Meanwhile, the southern border incursions continue: Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison on Wednesday demanded the Department of Homeland Security investigate a border standoff between U.S. lawmen and about 20 heavily armed... Read More
The Inland Daily Bulletin reports on the latest armed Mexican incursions on our southern border: Mexican soldiers and civilian smugglers had an armed standoff with nearly 30 U.S. law enforcement officials on the Rio Grande in Texas Monday afternoon, according to Texas police and the FBI. Mexican military Humvees were towing what appeared to be... Read More
A serious, pro-enforcement measure on border security and immigration control has just passed the House. Three years after I published Invasion, many of the policy recommendations included in the book have been embraced: The House acted Friday to stem the tide of illegal immigration by taking steps to tighten border controls and stop unlawful immigrants...

***updated 12/1 below*** The crescent is gone. AP reports: Designers of a Flight 93 memorial have made a bowl-shaped piece of land its centerpiece, replacing a crescent-shape design that some critics had said was a symbol honoring terrorists, officials announced Wednesday. The new design for the memorial, to be built on the site of the... Read More
Haven't seen much coverage of the standoff over the weekend between US Border Patrol agents and armed Mexican bandits. The El Paso Times reports: KRGV-TV and
My latest column, "Monumental surrender," on the Flight 93 Memorial controversy, bubbling in the blogosphere for nearly a week, is up: I focus not only on the use of the red crescent, but also the overall tone and intent of architect Paul Murdoch's design: Funded with a mix of public money and private cash (including...

A few weeks ago, I spoke to conservatives at the Young America's Foundation annual student conference about immigration and national security. I noted that it was no longer true, as I had been observing over the last several years, that the only thing saving Republicans on the issue of border security was the Democrats' stupidity....

Conservative radio talk show host and NRO contributor Michael Graham has been suspended from WMAL-AM without pay in Washington, D.C., for bluntly challenging Islam last week on air and this week in a column. Excerpt from his JWR piece: I take no pleasure in saying it. It pains me to think it. I could very... Read More
My friend Rep. Tom Tancredo is in hot water for his remarks about how we should react in response to an Islamist nuclear attack. Jack Kelly, Captain Ed and Hugh Hewitt respond. Hugh says Tancredo's statement "is the most irresponsible statement any American official can make." Rep. Tancredo's remarks were most certainly unwise, and he... Read More
There are appalling new developments in the cop-killer case in Denver. As reported by the Rocky Mountain News, Det. Donald Young's suspected killer, 19-year-old illegal alien Raul Garcia-Gomez, was employed at a restaurant co-owned by the city's mayor, John Hickenlooper. Garcia-Gomez worked for the Cherry Cricket for 10 months despite a federal notification sent to... Read More
As I discussed on FOX News this evening, federal judge David Bury has lifted a restraining order on Arizona's Prop. 200. It's a gratifying (if temporary) win for pro-immigration enforcement activists. Even the Democrat state attorney general, who had publicly opposed the ballot measure, agreed that it was constitutional and dismissed the open-borders lobby's argument... Read More
Just before the release of my first book, Invasion, I wanted to get a blurb from a liberal scholar or pundit to go along with blurbs provided by conservatives such as Sean Hannity, Rep. Tom Tancredo, and David Limbaugh. There was only one problem: I couldn't think of a single prominent liberal who vigorously opposes... Read More
The Washington Times reports on an alleged meeting between suspected al Qaeda operative Adnan Shukrijumah and the savage El Salvador-based gang, Mara Salvatrucha: A top al Qaeda lieutenant has met with leaders of a violent Salvadoran criminal gang with roots in Mexico and the United States — including a stronghold in the Washington area —... Read More the Republican Party convention! The Washington Times and Bob Novak report separately on efforts by conservatives to diversify the Karl Rove-approved, namby-pamby, prime-time speakers line-up. The Times' Ralph Hallow writes today: More than half the Republicans in the House have signed a formal complaint to President Bush about the failure to give prominent conservative,... Read More
I will get to this execrable editorial from the Open Borders brigade at the Wall Street Journal editorial page in a (long) moment. But first, some inside background: Before 2002, I had a fairly good relationship with the Journal's editorial page--a wonderful thing for any young and aspiring conservative writer to have. On my home... Read More
Talk TV sensationalists and axe-grinding ideologues have fallen for a myth of immigrant lawlessness.
