Facts About the ‘Diversity Lottery’ Trump, Republicans Don’t Want People to Know

I’ll be honest, before the recent terrorist attack in New York City, I didn’t know a great deal about the “diversity lottery” for immigration. Passed in 1990, it’s a measure aimed at trying to encourage immigration from countries whose citizens don’t normally immigrate to the United States. The individuals are then selected randomly and offered […]

Ted Cruz: ‘I Salute’ Donald Trump’s Racist Remarks About Immigrants

While Donald Trump continues to embarrass the Republican Party with his comments about Mexico and immigrants, the son of an immigrant, Ted Cruz, is standing up for him. Right now, the Republican Party is in the midst of a civil war pitting the evangelical Christian and Tea Party fringes represented by candidates like Donald Trump, […]

Sen. Lindsey Graham Shows Why Republicans are Stuck Between a Rock and a Racist Place (Video)

It’s no secret that Republicans really don’t do well with appealing to minorities. For much of this nation’s history, that was never really a problem. But with the Latino population growing and the continued push to get more African-Americans to vote, it’s becoming readily apparent to some Republicans that they can no longer simply rely […]

Here’s the Real Reason Why Republicans Won’t Do Anything About Immigration Reform

Even though it hasn’t been in the headlines much the last couple of weeks due to the ongoing debate over the Mike Brown and Eric Garner deaths, the controversy over President Obama’s executive action on immigration is still simmering within the Republican party. In fact, I fully expect it to boil over as soon as […]

Rachel Maddow Slams Republican Hypocrisy on “Outrage” Over Immigration

Ever since President Obama announced his intentions of using executive actions to get something done on immigration (since Speaker of the House John Boehner refused to let the House vote on the Senate’s bipartisan immigration reform bill last year) Republicans have been essentially throwing a hissy fit. I’ve heard some talk of impeachment and others saying […]

Fox And Friends Freaks Out Over President Obama Quoting Scripture On Immigration (Video)

I’m usually not one to give a rat’s backside what the folks over at Fox News have to say, but I couldn’t pass this one up. Apparently the clown show on Fox and Friends flipped out because President Obama had the audacity to quote scripture in his address announcing executive action to temporarily halt deportation […]

Breaking Down the Cowardly and Childish Temper Tantrum Republicans are Throwing Over Immigration

Often when I’ve described the behavior of the Republican party toward President Obama, I’ve evoked the image of a petulant child throwing a hissy fit. Honestly, that’s often what I see when they’re on another one of their irrational fear mongering campaigns against the president. I don’t see rational adults hoping to work with another adult […]

Reality Check for Republicans: The GOP Had Over a Year to Act on Immigration, Yet Did Absolutely Nothing

The date was June 27, 2013 when the United States Senate overwhelmingly passed a major bipartisan piece of legislation 68-32 that would have completely overhauled our immigration policies. At the time, both Republicans and Democrats celebrated the passage of this bill because it was one of the few major pieces of bipartisan legislation where both […]

3 Things Republicans Have Blocked That Americans Support More Than The Keystone XL Pipeline

One of the biggest talking points Republicans like to use as it relates to the Keystone XL pipeline (aside from their lies about jobs) is that the American people overwhelmingly support this project and want to see it built. To be fair, that’s pretty much true. About 65 percent of Americans surveyed said they support the […]
