A hot topic in the Legal Insurrection comment sections has been whether the insane/deranged/lunatic/vicious/malicious reaction of Democrats and the open-borders left to Trump’s generous DACA/Dreamer amnesty framework was part of some three-dimensional chess play by Trump.

In that scenario, Trump offered what he knew never would be accepted in order to make...

The reporter said he didn’t want to hurt Obama’s political career, as we reported in Journalist Releases Photo of Obama With Farrakhan Hidden From Public...

Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel has angered the Palestinian Authority leadership so much that they cut off diplomacy with the U.S. regarding peace talks with Israel.

Mahmoud Abbas tried, unsuccessfully, to get the Europeans to substitute for the U.S., and has launched nearly deranged tirades against the...

The framework of a proposal unveiled by the White House provides for a pathway to citizenship for 1.8 million so-called Dreamers, 25 billion for border security and The Wall, and an end of extended-family chain migration (though immediate family chain migration still permitted).

You can read the full details here.

We have seen this movie before, particularly on campuses.

Anti-Israel activists from the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement have a Plan A – to get a student council, company, university, faculty group, artist or government entity to adopt the BDS economic, cultural and academic boycott of Israel. Sometimes that works, but...

I don’t attribute to Trump the mythical ‘three-dimensional chess’ sort of analysis. So when the White House officially floats the idea of a massive amnesty for 1.8 million ‘Dreamers’ in the form of a pathway to citizenship, plus nuclear family reunification that will ad several million more, I think that’s actually...

Glad I was in the car much of the day, while all the theatrics were going on with unshutting down the government, which never really had been shut to begin with.

The overwhelming after-assessment among the punditry is that Schumer was humiliated, had little to show for either the fight or the...

As this post goes live, there are lots of rumors of some sort of “deal” between Democrat and Republican “moderates” to end the government funding impasse.

The Democrats, and particularly Chuck Schumer, have talked themselves into a dead end of seeming to put the interests of illegal aliens ahead of U.S. citizens....

We are now in Day 2 of the government shutdown, and things are not moving favorably for the Democrats, and they know it.

One sign may be that some leading Democrats are talking about capitulating on funding a wall on the Mexican border.

The Wall is symbolic in many ways.

Donald Trump’s announcement recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and ordering preparations to commence to relocate the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv, did not lead to the widespread violence that critics predicted. It has, however, caused the Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas to lay bare his decades old anti-Semitism in a recent...
