Government shutdowns are not cancer and today I’ll show why we must stop taking the bait. Indeed, I’ll show why we will lose elections if we are unwilling to shut down the government in order to protect human life and reform immigration policy.

CNN’s Dana Bash did not speak much during last week’s presidential debate—but, when she did, she succeeded in corralling GOP candidates into a corner. The corner of accepting her wobbly tri-fold premise:

1. Shutdowns cost Republicans elections.
2. Shutdowns are akin to national disasters like Hurricane Katrina.
3. Anytime we shut down the government, Republicans are 100% responsible for any associated inconveniences, costs or disgruntled federal employees.

Gov. John Kasich directly stated his fear of shutdowns during the debate. Gov. Chris Christie hemmed and hawed. And, if silence is consent—many other candidates seemed to sanction Bash’s premise through silence. To briefly recap:

BASH: “Governor Kasich, Senator Cruz is so committed from stripping funds from Planned Parenthood that it could result in shutting down the federal government in just about two weeks. Do you agree with Senator Cruz' tactic?”

Europe is unwilling and unable to oppose this invasion. This is critical to the future of the United States.

Let’s hope Congress can contain the immigration jihad threat in the White House. Europe is our cautionary tale.

A Hungarian government official made an astounding prediction Friday that up to 35 million migrants could flood into Europe as part of a historic population shift, as yet another European country felt the pain.

Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu vowed to act forcefully against Palestinian terror and rioting while restoring peace to the Temple Mount.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Sunday morning that he was determined to fight the latest wave of Palestinian terror in Jerusalem. “Whoever tries to attack us, we will hurt him,” the Israeli leader asserted.

“Stones and firebombs are deadly weapons; they kill and have killed,” he stated at the beginning of weekly cabinet meeting.

“Therefore, in recent days we have changed the open-fire orders for police in Jerusalem. Already over the weekend they used the new measures under the new orders and immediately hit those throwing stones and firebombs.”
Israel’s government has also begun advancing legislation to impose fines on the parents of minors who throw stones and firebombs, he added. “No less important in my view is the advancing of legislation to set minimum punishments for those who throw stones, firebombs and fireworks. We cannot accept the principle that in Jerusalem our capital, or in any part of the State of Israel, in the Galilee or in the Negev, that people will organize terrorism and begin to stone passing cars or throw stones and murder people. This norm will not be established here; rather, an opposite norm will – we will act against you and stop you, and we will punish you with the full force of the law,” Netanyahu vowed.
