Mike Pence defends President Trumps comments

Vice President Mike Pence stood by with President Trump following last week’s comments about certain nations being “s***hole countries.” The evangelical referred to what he knew about the President personally: his heart.

“I know the president’s heart and I know that what President Trump wants to do is reform immigration to make our system one that puts the interests of America first.”

VP defends Trump over vulgar remarks on African immigrants

https://apnews.com/7fa410a4b30b443bbddc8cee267fc3c0/VP-defends-Trump-over-vulgar-remarks-on-African-immigrantsJERUSALEM (AP) — U.S. Vice President Mike Pence on Monday defended President Donald Trump over his recent comments disparaging immigration from Africa and Haiti, telling The Associated Press that the president’s “heart” is aimed at a merit-based system that is blind to immigrants’ “race or creed.”

Pence, in an interview with the AP from Jerusalem, said the president was intent on implementing a merit-based system that encourages immigration by those who will “contribute to a growing American economy and thriving communities.”

Danny Tarkanian has a message for his competitor and the people of Nevada

Nevada needs ICE. The Immigration and Customs Enforcement is always in the news with most Democrats panning it while most Republicans support their efforts of capturing and removing criminal illegal immigrants. Some Democrats are even calling for the abolition of ICE altogether.

Danny Tarkanian’s opponent, Susie Lee, is one of those Democrats.

Anecdotally, it seems that most Independent voters and fair-minded people on both sides of the political aisle will acknowledge that there are challenges with ICE that must be addressed while refraining from calling for it to disappear or be replaced. No law enforcement agency in the nation is as properly trained and equipped to handle the growing problem of illegal immigration.

Let’s fix the immigration system. Let’s build the wall. Let’s sit at a table and discuss how to handle the illegal immigrants who are already here. Calling for the end of ICE is ridiculous. If Danny Tarkanian sits in Congress, he will do everything he can to prevent that from happening.

The elimination of ICE would surrender border security and end the enforcement of our federal immigration laws. I will not stand by and allow that to happen.

Katherine Timpf on fighting political correctness

National Review reporter and Fox News contributor Katherine Timpf often discusses political correctness. She talks about it so often that one might think it’s a subject she enjoys, but in reality it’s simply a problem she passionately wants to solve.

In American society, it is way too easy to offend. People do not want to hear that their perspectives are wrong. That’s apparently some form of violence. They don’t want to hear an opposing viewpoint. That’s allegedly a form of oppression. Many on the left feel entitled to express their opinions in any way they see fit and also to prevent others from sharing their opinions if there’s a difference in worldviews.

The hypocrisy of political correctness is thick.

As Timpf recently pointed out on National Review, it’s a problem that doesn’t have an easy solution, but trends are pointing to positive movement against the specter of political correctness.

Political Correctness: Study Finds 80 Percent of Americans Think It’s a Problem

https://www.nationalreview.com/2018/10/political-correctness-problem-according-to-80-percent-of-people/I could go on for pages and pages, but you get the point: Writing about political correctness sometimes makes me feel as if everyone has gone mad, and I’m very glad to see that this doesn’t seem to be the case. Instead, a strong majority of people apparently agrees with me. A strong majority believes that political correctness has gone too far, and probably would agree that we need to be careful to protect our ability to speak freely in this country.

That’s certainly encouraging, but it still doesn’t make me feel entirely better. After all, the small, PC-obsessed mob can sometimes be very powerful. Once it decides that someone or something is racist or sexist, that conclusion can carry a lot of weight. It can ruin careers and lives. It can remove perfectly good, innocuous words from acceptable speech, because even the people who might not see a problem with those words don’t want to risk being accused of racism or sexism for using them. The only answer is to keep fighting, to keep exposing and mocking such overreach when it occurs — and to take solace in the fact that so many people have awoken to its dangers.

Keep fighting the good fight, Ms. Timpf.

Marsha Blackburn on the state of the net

Tennessee Senate candidate Marsha Blackburn has been a proponent of internet freedom since before it became a hot topic. She pushed for recognition of the potential problems that can arise if progressives get their way with a heavily regulated internet.

Seven years ago, when many Republicans were learning how to set up a Twitter account, Blackburn was preparing conservatives for the fight they had coming. Our online rights were going to get attacked by the left and the Obama administration was well on its way towards making their vision of net neutrality a reality.

One particular moment of a speech she gave in 2011 stands out:

Conservatives must not let big government, regulation, or taxation limit the long term potential of the Creative Economy, as it has already done with the industrial sector.

Regulation hampers innovation. Taxation stunts growth. Big government suffocates all. These premises don’t just align in the real world. In the digital world, they are even more prevalent. Marsha Blackburn understands this. Make her a Senator, Tennessee.
