Saving the Border When the Cavalry Isn’t Coming

About those 300 U.S. military advisers that the Obama administration has ordered to Iraq.

They belong on the United States border with Mexico. They are urgently needed to assess what U.S. military force should be deployed immediately to secure our own border, not Iraq’s border, from what is surely the most unconventional and, I believe, the most dangerous war in our history. As tens of thousands of so-called unaccompanied alien children (UAC) crash our southern border, we are undergoing a war against the existence, the concept of the USA as a nation-state.

After all, a nation-state doesn’t exist unless it controls its borders and protects its citizens. We, the People, do neither. But the existential danger here comes not from the assault itself. Nightmarishly, it comes from the Obama administration, which, in its greatest betrayal, is leading, or at least supporting, the aliens’ charge.

Surge of Immigrants Responsible for Half of Britain’s Population Growth

High immigration contributed to a population surge in Britain last year. The number of people living in the country increased by 400,000 between mid-2012 and mid-2013, with newborn babies accounting for just half the figure, meaning the other half is from immigration.

These figures mean the UK has the fastest growing population in Europe, and likely reach 74 million in 25 years, an increase of 10 million.

The Times reports that official figures from the Office for National Statistics show the UK population reached 64 million for the first time last year, and has seen an overall growth of five million since 2001, but the growth is accelerating: the population increased by the same amount over the previous 37 years.

Chris Wilson, assistant professor of demography at the University of Oxford, said that the increase of 400,000 people over the past year is equivalent to a city the size of Bristol.

“The dynamics of population increase have been stable for about five or six years. Four hundred thousand a year might not sound a lot but it is adding a city the size of Bristol to the population every year. We are really adding quite a bit.”

Migration Watch said that at the current rate, the UK population will increase by four million within the next 10 years.

Vice-Chairman Alp Mehmet said: “Population growth on this scale is clearly unsustainable and raises serious questions about the ability of public services and infrastructure to cope with such a rapidly growing population.

“The Government will have to build schools, GP surgeries, hospitals and homes as well as expand an already creaking infrastructure in order to cope with this demand at a time when there is very little money to spare.”

Coulter: Hillary ‘Rape’ Tape ‘Bigger Than Benghazi’, Depicts Clintons as ‘Con Artists’

On Thursday’s “Hannity” on the Fox News Channel, conservative columnist Ann Coulter, author of “Never Trust a Liberal Over 3-Especially a Republican,” explained why a recently uncovered recording of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton from 1980s boasting about her defense of a man accused of raping a 12-year-old girl will prove harmful to Clinton’s potential presidential bid and more broadly the Democratic meme of a Republican “war on women.”

Coulter explained to host Sean Hannity it feeds into the narrative that the former first lady and her husband are “con artists,” especially when you examine the particulars of this case.

“[I] think this is a pretty serious matter and I first heard about it on your radio show. I didn’t know what you were talking about. I don’t think this is going to go over well with normal people because it fits in with the idea of the Democratic Party and particularly the Clintons that that they are just con artists pretending to care about the little guy while they’re using legal trickery to perpetrate injustices on the weak and powerless, which is what Hillary Clinton did here. I mean, this poor girl, if you read about the crime was, it’s quite shocking – more than comes across in that little fake southern accent conversation she gives. It was two guys who brutally raped and beat a 12-year-old girl what was a virgin. She was made infertile. She was in a comma for five days.”

“And Hillary Clinton not only defended this guy — do not believe what they saying elsewhere – that lawyers are required to do this,” Coulter continued. “You know, oddly enough, I am a lawyer. I practice law. I don’t know any lawyers who have defended criminals personally — you have to reach out to take these cases. No one forces you to defend Ted Bundy. It’s always the same lawyers doing it. In any event, she submitted an affidavit claiming that this poor 12-year-old girl was a fantasist, that she had falsely accused people before. When the girl was presented with this recently, she didn’t know Hillary had worked so hard to get her rapist off. She said, “I don’t know what she’s talking about. She’s lying in this affidavit.’ How can we trust her as president if she’ll lie in a court case to defend the rapist of a young girl? And I just think it fits into this, ‘Oh, I feel your pain’ phoniness of the Clintons.”

Coulter explained why this recording could prove to be more problematic for Hillary Clinton’s presidential bid than the Sept. 11, 2012 terrorist assault on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi.

“Often the scandals that hurt the most, like Gary Hart, for example, being caught in the monkey business having an affair — when it hurts the most is when it fits into an image people have a sneaking suspicion people have you,” she continued. “And that is the suspicion that people have of the Clintons, the big defenders of women and children. She’s laughing about getting a guilty rapist off. This is a big issue. I think it’s bigger than Benghazi.”

Coulter added this and other cases involving rape where Democrats and liberals have played a support role for the accused rapist will erode the notion that a Republican “war on women” exists.

“This nonsense — I never want to hear about the Republican ‘war on women’ anymore,” she added.

NYC Offers Free Lawyers For Illegals

As if it doesn’t have enough issues to throw money at, “New York City is now the first jurisdiction in the country with a public defender system dedicated solely to providing free legal council to every poor, detained immigrant facing deportation.”

The city recently passed a $4.9 million budget to fund the program designated the New York Immigrant Family Unity Project. The launch comes afte ra one-year trial run the city claimed was successful. The funds will cover about 1,380 currently detained immigrants facing deportation.

Given that deportation proceedings are a civil matter and not a criminal one, this is not a Constitutional issue. The same right to counsel does not apply. However, New York City is now going make legal resident taxpayers pay to provide it, whether they like it, or not.

“Immigrants can be locked up in exactly the same facilities, they come into the court shackled, have to face trained lawyers, and the stakes are really high,” said Peter Moskowitz, a professor at Cardozo School of Law’s Immigrant Justice Clinic who helped facilitate the study and create the Family Unity Project. “They’re looking at being exiled from their homes and their families, but as far as the current interpretation of the constitution goes, they are not afforded the same right to counsel.”

Cruz: Bring Back Our Boys (Video)

Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) took to the Senate floor, Thursday, to shine a spotlight on the kidnapping of three Israeli teens in the West Bank by members of the terrorist group Hamas. Cruz declared that “the full weight of the world should bear down on Hamas” until they return the kidnapped Israeli teens.

Senator Cruz noted a report in the Israeli media that identified the two key suspects in the abduction.

“These two individuals are members of Hamas, a vicious terrorist organization that seeks Israel’s destruction and has launched thousands of rockets into Israel, killing innocent civilians. Those rockets have also killed dozens of Americans in Israel. Now they have kidnapped three schoolboys.  Sadly, this is business as usual for Hamas. This is the same terrorist organization with which the Palestinian Authority recently joined in a so-called “unity” government.”

 “There can be no more illusions that Hamas has any role in any future government formed by the Palestinian Authority.  They must not receive any further recognition or legitimization. Hamas is a violent terrorist organization ready and eager to brutalize the most innocent. Hamas is a terrorist organization that kidnaps three innocent school boys.

 “Hamas, give the boys back. Hamas, give those boys back now. The full weight of the world should bear down on Hamas to give them back safely and immediately. If they do not, we should use all of the available means to stand unequivocally with Israel for however long it takes to find these boys and to bring them home. These are teenagers who were targeted for who they are, who have done no wrong, who have done nothing that comes near to deserving what has happened to them that day while waiting at the bus stop to go home from school.”
