College Grad Killed by Illegal Alien

A 21-year-old college graduate named Sarah Root had everything to live for. But her life was tragically cut short when her car was rear-ended by an illegal alien who was street-racing while drunk on the night of January 31 in Omaha, Nebraska. The suspect’s blood alcohol content was four times higher than the legal limit, and his license had already been suspended. But the suspect, Eswin Mejia (pronounced mehh EE uh), was not subjected to the enforcement of our immigration laws, because the suspect did not have a prior significant misdemeanor or felony conviction. The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement refused repeated requests to detain the illegal alien, and instead allowed him to remain free despite how he had been charged with vehicle homicide.

We will no longer surrender this country

Brent Bozell writes An Open Letter to Conservative Friends Supporting Donald Trump:
I’ve endorsed Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX). I was a contributor to National Review’s Against Trump symposium at the beginning of the year.

Sarah Palin, Ben Carson, Mike Huckabee and Phyllis Schlafly — you are friends and allies, serious men and women for whom I have great respect. You and other conservatives disagreed.

I pen this open letter to you. ...

Does Donald Trump mean a word he says? ...

Is someone with no discernible principles the candidate you want leading the Republican Party and taking on the Democrats in 2016?
Trump has lived in the public eye for a long time, and is the most transparent of all the candidates. Yes, he has principles and means what he says. He is what he appears to be.

His first principle is that the President's first concern should be the protection of America and Americans. A recent speech said: “We will no longer surrender this country or its people to the false song of globalism.”

We have been waiting since Barry Goldwater and Ronald Reagan for a Republican candidate to say stuff like that. Yes, there are many other important conservative issues, but they will not matter if our leaders surrender our nation to the false song of globalism.

Pat Buchanan said stuff like that, but he was unable to build a sufficiently broad base of support. Trump is gaining support from all demographics, and creating excitement that we have not seen in a long time. This year's biggest political issue is globalism, and it is the best issue for defeating Hillary Clinton.

Tired Of Blaine Amendments

A Christian preschool in Columbia, Missouri will be at the heart of the Supreme Court’s next big case on religious liberty. The Trinity Lutheran Child Learning Center was denied a grant from the Missouri state government because of its religious affiliation. The purpose of this grant was to give schools access to shredded tire material to replace gravel on their playgrounds. This is able to create a safer play environment for kids and also find a good recycled use for old tires. This school was ranked 5th out of 44 applications based on how many students would benefit from the grant; however, officials denied the application because of Missouri’s so-called Blaine Amendment.

Feminists Cry Foul

Pro-choice feminists have claimed for years that men are drowning out the voices of women in the abortion debate. That’s why one feminist group called the Women’s Media Center wrote a report on how women are underrepresented on this issue. According to the report, 52 percent of articles about reproductive issues were written by men compared to 37 percent by women. The other 11 percent of articles did not have a byline. The feminist group was quick to tout this as proof that men are trying to suppress the voices of women and control the abortion debate.
