Why Everyone Believes in Secure Borders and Why America Needs Them

Do you have locks on your doors? How about on your car? Got a fence so your kids can play safely? Do you have passwords on your computers? How about your bank accounts? Do you protect your credit card numbers? Your social security number? How about your medical records? Do you think curbs, guardrails, and traffic lines are a good idea, or should people be able to drive any where and any way they want? How about security borders at the airport—necessary or optional?

The truth is everyone believes in secure borders. In fact, life would be impossible without them. As long as human nature is what it is—bent toward evil—borders will be necessary. The only question is “Where am I going to draw the borders for my own security?” Read More →

Deport the Deplorables?

Victor David Hanson//American Greatness – Deport the Deplorables is a slogan of popular culture, found on bumper stickers, t-shirts, and internet postings. But now the mini-industry of deplorable/deportable sloganeering has made its way into more elite circles.

With just three words, the phrase “deport the deplorables” sends two popular messages: one, get rid of undesirable American citizens who voted for Donald Trump and who were properly written off in 2016 as deplorables by Hillary Clinton. And, two, by implication, don’t deport the illegal aliens who broke U.S. immigration law. Or put more succinctly, foreign nationals who crash our borders are innately superior people to citizens of the working- and middle-classes who voted for Trump.

A bipartisan disdain exists for the middle and working classes, whether periodically politically manifested as the old blue-dog Democrats, Perot voters, Reagan Democrats, Tea Party activists, or Trump supporters. On the Left, they were derided as the clingers of rural Pennsylvania whom Obama blamed for his 2008 primary loss to Hillary Clinton in that state and who never appreciated his genius: “And it’s not surprising, then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.” Read More →

Canada clamping down on religious freedom

As religious freedom increasingly erodes north of the border, Canadians, are now wondering just how far the landslide will go.

Earlier this year, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau implemented a policy with summer job grants for youth that greatly impacted non-profit organizations throughout the nation.

Barry Bussey of the Canadian Council of Christian Charities told OneNewsNow that the controversial policy had a major impact on member organizations.

“The media reports are somewhere around 1,500 charities across the country that did not receive funding from the government as a result of this new attestation requirement,” Bussey pointed out. “[Through it, the government is now requiring the charities to attest that they agree with the government’s position on various rights – including abortion.”

Furthermore, charities had to agree to the homosexual agenda, which many absolutely could not do in good conscience. Read More →
