    So glad to see you quoting Mark Steyn, Sundance. He is a BRILLIANT guy, as you say.

    He DID make one important mistake that I remember, showing uncharacteristic lack of acumen during the initial Ferguson imbroglio. I remember defending him here – not for the serious Ferguson error but in general, as an overall force for good – and being chastised for it…. not by you.

    Almost every other time he’s been on the right side, and on the right side.

    Like Rush and Mark Levin, also Hannity to an honorable extent, Steyn’s one of the few somewhat-establishment figures who did not jump on the Trump-bashing wagon. On the contrary.

    I was glad to see that.

  3. Is there a reason illegals (or enemy combatants) are entitled to “due process”? That is not how my copy of the Constitution reads.

    Also, the writers of the 14th Amendment NEVER meant for it to be used for anchor babies.

      I think I have read that there have been SCOTUS decisions that have established that non citizens are entitled to our Constitutional protections.

        Non citizens. Funny how the left is so eager to help the GOP get Trump, who they claim will lose big to the dems, and help Jeb or any estab candidate, who they say will beat them. Sure is nice of the democrats to help cause their own defeat. They are running around with their hair on fire warning the Republican voters. Don’t vote Trump, vote Jeb. Only Jeb or a RINO can beat us. Good Grief how can anyone be stupid enough to buy it?

        Um, no. Illegal (and I stress the “illegal” part of this), Illegal foreigners (illegal aliens) in FACT, are NOT afforded the protections under the constitution. They have no right to free speech (1st Amd.), they have no right to keep and bear arms (2nd Amd.), they have no right to “due process” (4th Amd.), they have no right to vote, they have NONE of these rights, PERIOD! … They are (A) NON-citizens and (B) ILLEGALLY here … they in FACT can be treated as enemy combatants!

        • While the wisdom of this may be debatable, and the opinions about the reasoning behind it varied, the facts do not bear out your argument because aliens, legal or otherwise ARE afforded the same protections and rights under the Constitution, save those that are specifically reserved for US citizens: The right to vote and the right to hold federal office.

          James Madison once wrote:

          It does not follow, because aliens are not parties to the Constitution, as citizens are parties to it, that whilst they actually conform to it, they have no right to its protection. Aliens are not more parties to the laws, than they are parties to the Constitution; yet it will not be disputed, that as they owe, on one hand, a temporary obedience, they are entitled, in return, to their protection and advantage

          Here’s a paper that discusses the matter at greater length than which I am able to offer, and includes references to legal precedents and rulings.

          Certainly, over the years there have been deviations from that over all policy, just as with anything else. And even now the question of whether some of those deviations were, in fact, violations of the Constitution, remains unresolved. But IMO it was never the Framer’s intention to deny to foreigners any of the rights afforded to citizens, save that of participation in the administration of the nation.

          So, yes, even non citizens have certain rights.

          Criminals and invaders should be deprived of their rights when they attempt to deprive a person of what is rightfully his.

          This is at least partially wrong. Illegal aliens are afforded “procedural due process.” The purpose of having the detention center at Gitmo was to circumvent this fact.

    Hugh Hewitt (generally an establishment neocon) has steadfastly refused to side with any GOP candidate, Steyn is tight with Hewitt, and Hewitt respects Steyn. Steyn should at least keep Hewitt open to Trump.

    • I gave up on both Hewitt AND Medved, since they both seem to be “Stealth Conservatives” who actually shill for the GOPe branch of the UniParty.

      Now, Levin is an animal with entirely different stripes. HE seems to be quite willing to expose the GOPe for what it truly is, even if he does fall short of endorsing Trump at this point in time.

    The CNN/ORC poll near the beginning of the clip has Jeb at 13%. If you look at the history of that poll, it consistently has the highest numbers for Jeb. I wonder who they’re polling. The fact that Jeb is polling above 10% worries me.

  11. Sandra says:

    Well that entire clip was fantastic. Steyn made SO many great points. George Will would be wise to watch it. I laughed when Steyn said (in effect) “We’re tired of being told why the Republicans can’t do things”, which I’m going to assume is a direct response to Will’s pathetic argument that Trump supporters don’t understand how the federal government works and James Madison is the real reason why the current batch of Republicans are ineffectual. (eye roll)

    Hannity mentions a string of Democrat Presidential hopefuls but leaves out Jim Webb. WHY? because Hannity knows Webb could win and this is why the Clinton Media Machine is keeping him off the grid.

      • Mark has a deep familiarity of the US Constitution and is very knowledgeable about the manner in which it is currently being ignored and/or intentionally misinterpreted. He is quite right when he says that there is no need for a Constitutional amendment (in regards to birthright citizenship) since (as he so eloquently explained in the audio file that you linked) that matter is clearly defined in Article I, Section 8, clause 4 of the US Constitution:

        The Congress shall have Power… …To establish an uniform Rule of Naturalization…

        Notice that since this clause is PART of the existing Constitution, and clearly gives Congress the power to define the rules and process for naturalization, any argument that claims it is necessary to amend the Constitution before Congress can do so is entirely specious.. At the worst, it is only necessary for Congress to simply reject the notion that “Anchor Babies” are citizens, and legislate accordingly. Let the Progs take ’em to court and argue otherwise.

        This is all a misdirection intended mire the conversation in hopelessness because of the difficulty involved in actually amending the Constitution. What they (the CoC Uniparty, backed by a complicit media) are doing is trying to force the public into accepting “Amnesty” as being inevitable. LOL It’s.Not.

    This is simple.

    Steyn hates PC (he got sued more than once by his own nation- Canada- for being honest but “violating” the PC laws). Trump is kicking PC in the private parts! Steyn likes Trump.

    Steyn is scared to death of Western nations being overwhelmed by third world illegals of all stripes. Trump is b- slapping illegal immigration and its foolish supporters.

    Steyn likes Trump.

    The newest GOP consultant line is it will cost to much to remove illegals. She said 400-500 billion. She would not be shaken from that figure on Fox. She couldn’t explain it nor would she acknowledge that an unknown percentage would self deport. She said it is impossible. So that is the new line for now. No acknowledgement of how much they cost to keep here either in dollars nor social costs. Shameful.

  17. OK, next step forward victory – all of “our” candidates should drop out while endorsing Trump. If he is 1st or 2nd choice of 60% of Rep. voters, we’re in!

    This would totally bollix the CoC poodles and concentrate fire where it belongs. Plus, Trump will need to appoint people to various Cabinet-level positions and 100s of other federal spots, and our slate is fabulously experienced (Perry, Walker), well-educated (Cruz), smart (Cruz, Carson), tough (Fiorina), ethnic (Jindal), military experience (West), beautiful (Haley), handsome and eloquent (Rubio). Etc. Etc.
