The time has come to act in the best interests of Americans and ditch the PC blather
House Speaker Paul Ryan was heralded as an economic genius when Mitt Romney tapped him as his vice presidential running mate in 2012. It turns out Ryan, now the House Speaker, is a go-along-to-get-along guy. And the one he is most intent on getting along with is Barack Obama.
Appearing more and more like kid werewolf Eddie Munster, Ryan is preparing to issue Obama a blank check in the year-end $1.1 trillion dollar omnibus to dangerously admit and resettle in the U.S. impossible to vet Syrian, Iraqi and other Muslims claiming refugee status. The omnibus is expected to be made public today and voted on Wednesday.
The House Freedom Caucus, touted as conservative, is not demanding Ryan block funding for “refugee” resettlement immigration.
Conservative commentator Mark Levin is quoted as saying, “These people inside Washington — they don’t get it. This is World War III. Could you imagine during World War II or World War I having these discussions? World War I, under a hideous president, Woodrow Wilson, World War II under an almost equally hideous president, FDR — did they worry about any of this stuff? Was this the national debate? The national debate was how to secure the nation and destroy the enemy and how to destroy the enemy as quickly as possible — victory, victory, victory. Do these guys even talk about victory? This entire debate is absurd.”
And that broad coalition of partners Obama claims is joining in the fight to stop ISIS? We can’t count on much help from Germany as Chancellor Angela Merkel on Sunday brushed off what a Germany magazine said was a request from the United States to provide more military help in the fight against Islamic terrorists. “I believe Germany is fulfilling its part and we don’t need to talk about new issues related to this question at the moment,” she said.
Syndicated columnist Larry Kudlow began his political life as a dedicated liberal. Along the way, he cleared his head and during Reagan’s first term, Kudlow was appointed associate director for economics and planning in the Office of Management and Budget, working closely with the president. This brief bio is provided as a backdrop to reading his National Review column, “I’ve Changed. This Is War. Seal the Borders. Stop the Visas,” in which he describes what he calls his hardline shift from an immigration reformer.
His article begs to be read.
