Hamas-linked CAIR protests federal program to combat “extremism”
“The organizations that convened Thursday on City Hall Plaza — including the Council on American-Islamic Relations Massachusetts Chapter, the Muslim Justice League, and other social justice organizations — said the federal program is pocked with shortcomings.” Chief among those shortcomings is this: “It’s a federal program that singles out Muslim communities and reinforces false notions […]

Just how often do preventable tragedies like Kate Steinle’s murder by an illegal immigrant happen? Far too often, as the case of 29-year-old Victor Aureliano Hernandez Ramirez, who’s accused of rape and murder, shows.

Just weeks after Steinle’s death, on July 24, Ramirez and an accomplice, Jose Fernando Villagomez, allegedly broke into the home of 64-year-old Marilyn Pharis, where they sexually assaulted and attacked her with a hammer.

She died eight days later.

The illegal immigrant is now being charged with murder. But given the fact that he twice avoided deportation in the past 15 months, serious questions are being raised about why, given that this wasn’t the first time he was in law enforcement custody or committed a violent act.

The DC reports:
Ramirez was incarcerated by the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Department for a May 22, 2014 battery charge against a woman. At that time, ICE placed a detainer request asking the sheriff’s office to be notified of Ramirez’s release so that the agency could take custody to explore whether to deport him. But records show that Ramirez was released by local authorities a week after without ICE having ever received notification regarding the detainer.
Ramirez was rearrested July 16 of this year on an unrelated charge. But by then, ICE had changed its outlook towards Ramirez. The agency declined to issue a detainer at that time because Ramirez’s case history showed he had no prior deportations or felony criminal convictions.
So why did they changed their outlook? Simply put, it was President Obama’s executive actions on immigration that were announced in November, which shifted focus to going after violent criminal felons and threats to national security. Those illegal immigrants who committed misdemeanors, even violent acts, were thus considered low priority.

“I think this is a national issue – it starts with administration and their policies,” Santa Maria police chief Ralph Martin said about Pharis’ attack. “You can draw a direct line to this governor and Legislature.”

“I am not remiss to say that from Washington DC to Sacramento, there is a blood trail to Marilyn Pharis’ bedroom,” he continued.
Literally, as the 2016 Republican candidates arrived on the debate stage on August 6, news broke that the presumptive successor to Sen. Harry Reid’s (D-NV) leadership position in the Senate–Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY)–would be voting against the nuclear deal with Iran.

In a lengthy statement posted on Medium, the New York Democrat voiced his concerns over the weaknesses in the accountability measures of the deal and the political nature of the country, noting that it’s dubious that hope and change will come to Iran any time soon. He noted that such sentiments for moderation have been present for over three decades and the only thing that’s happened is that the hardline elements in the country have further tightened their grip on power.

In the House, fellow Democratic Rep. Steve Israel (D-NY), the highest-ranking Jewish Democrat in that chamber, voiced his opposition to the deal. Rep. Brad Sherman (D-CA) also announced last Friday he would vote against the deal, and urged that we renegotiate the terms once Obama leaves office. So far, the Democrats are divided, and Obama’s speech at American University on August 5 has predictably done nothing to assuage any fears his side of the aisle has on this agreement.

Nevertheless, Sen. Schumer is catching heat for his planned “no” vote, with far-left organizations, like and CREDO Action, saying he’s “unfit” to lead the Democrats in the Senate, and that they should find “a new leader” (via the Hill):

Donald Trump’s ‘bloody’ slam of Megyn Kelly gets him booted from RedState Gathering

Pamela Geller / Atlas Shrugs

Trump’s statement about Megyn Kelly highlights once again his misogyny, and Jack Wheeler has the goods on this blowhard:
He (Trump last night) said nothing of substance whatever – try to find a counterexample in the transcript. A close personal friend of mine has a net worth much higher than Trump’s, has known him for many years, and has intimate familiarity with his business dealings. Here is what he tells me:
“Trump is an incoherent wind bag – a symptom of the cheapening of our culture like Kim Kardashian. He got his start with his father’s money made from subsidized housing projects in Queens, and his father’s ties to New York City politicians. He’s been a crony capitalist from day one.
In the 1980s, when he...

Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump late Friday fired Roger Stone, his campaign manager, over concerns about Stone’s loyalty to the billionaire businessman’s run for Republican presidential nomination.

"He has had a number of articles about him recently, and Mr. Trump wants to keep the focus of the campaign on how to 'Make America Great Again,' " the spokesperson said.

Though there were other mixed reports as to whether Stone was fired or quit the campaign, his departure was the first strong sign that Trump’s election effort was suffering setbacks Saturday from his comments Friday night in which he attacked one of the Fox debate moderators, Megyn Kelly.

Stone’s friends told Politico on background that the well-known Republican campaign adviser sent an email to Trump announcing his decision to leave his presidential campaign earlier in the day.

We, As Conservatives, Deserve Better Than Trump

If Donald Trump is the best we, as Conservatives, Republicans, Tea Partiers or Teapublicans can up with as a candidate for the presidency…we have set the bar far, FAR too low…in fact…we have made that bar subterranean as that is where moles reside.

As Conservatives, we have for years demanded a candidate that has a long record OF conservatism but does Trump possess such a record?

No, he does not.

Donald Trump has changed his voter registration, from one political party to another, over and over again. When asked, point blank in last Thursday’s prime time debate, “When exactly did you become a Republican?” Trump responded by NOT responding at all. He gave a shrug and a smirk and changed the subject, refusing to answer a direct question.

Is that what we want from a candidate for president?
