Prosecute the Sanctuary Secessionists
The Freedom Center's newest campaign takes on the seditious "sanctuary campus" movement.
There are now 500 sanctuary cities in the U.S., virtually all Democratic, which are pledged not to cooperate with the Department of Homeland Security in its efforts to secure our borders, identify terrorists, and deport criminal aliens. California has taken the lead in this pernicious movement and is about to become the first sanctuary state. Moreover, every public California institution of higher learning has declared itself a “sanctuary campus” including the University of California whose president Janet Napolitano is a former Obama appointee to head the Department of Homeland Security itself. This is the most massive movement of sedition since the Civil War and is the centerpiece of the so-called “resistance” - itself a form of sedition in a democracy - that Democrats have mobilized against the Trump administration.

Are the Saudis About to Lose Control Over America?
If you read between the lines, the outcome is clear. The Saudi policy of dumping their way to supremacy is over. Its new strategy is for balance.

Obama subordinated America’s national interests to his notion of global citizenship under the umbrella of strengthened multilateral organizations and international norms. He also believed that American power needed to be contained. President Trump’s stated approach to virtually all issues relating to foreign policy is to put American national security and economic interests first. It explains his budget priorities, which would add billions of dollars for defense and border security, while cutting back on programs at the State Department undergirding so-called “soft diplomacy.” President Trump also views such global issues as trade, immigration, climate change and participation in multilateral institutions through the prism of “America first.” Thus, his budget blueprint would reduce U.S. funding contributions to the UN and multilateral development banks, while ceasing payments altogether to the UN’s climate change programs. It projects more reliance on America’s “hard power.” [more...]
A New California Gold Rush?
By Lowell Ponte
California’s 2017 record rains ended the state’s long drought, and they also opened millions of veins of gold that the ’49ers never found. Hopeful get-rich-quick people should be headed to California again, now that the streams are awash with flakes and nuggets of gold for the taking. What seems surprising is that so few have grabbed this opportunity. [more...]
