Amnesty Blocked -- For Now, Clueless Kerry, Sitting On The Second Amendment

Amnesty Blocked -- For Now

A divided Supreme Court split 4-to-4 on Barack Obama's executive orders granting amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants. It is outrageous that four justices apparently believe the president had the power to unilaterally re-write immigration law.

That said, the split decision leaves in place the ruling of the lower appellate court, which declared the president's orders unconstitutional. So the president's unilateral mass amnesty has been blocked. For now.

Trump's Outreach Continues

Yesterday afternoon, Donald Trump's campaign announced the formation of an Evangelical Advisory Board. Members of the board were not required to endorse Trump. Indeed, some have been very critical of him.

Today's Meeting With Trump

I am writing this report from the Marriott Marquis in New York City, where I have been in meetings with Donald Trump and more than 1,000 religious leaders. There were household names like Franklin Graham, who opened the meeting with an incredibly moving prayer. Others present included Dr. James Dobson, Tony Perkins, Dr. Ben Carson, Penny Nance and Jerry Falwell, Jr.

There was a smaller, private meeting before the main event, which I attended. Here are a few key points that stood out to me:

Whitewashing Islamic Terrorism, DHS In Denial, The Assault On Our Values, The Violent Left

Whitewashing Islamic Terrorism

Appearing on NBC's weekend talk show "Meet the Press" yesterday, Attorney General Loretta Lynch made a stunning announcement. In flatly contradictory remarks made almost in the same breath, Lynch declared that the FBI would be releasing only "a partial transcript" of Omar Mateen's calls to 911 and the Orlando Police Department's hostage negotiating team.

Obama's Foreign Policy In Disarray

In the wake of the worst terrorist attack on American soil since 9/11, President Obama had the audacity to tell the nation on Tuesday that his efforts against ISIS were making "significant progress."

Terror & Immigration

While media and political elites continue to mock those who suggest we need stricter immigration controls to combat terrorism, the headlines suggest otherwise. For example:

The Orlando terrorist attack continues to dominate the news. Here is an update on some of the latest headlines.

Obama & Orlando, It's Your Fault, Tragedy?, Sad, But True

Obama & Orlando

Sunday afternoon, President Obama took to the podium at the White House briefing room and turned the Orlando attack into a tirade against guns. Obama said that the FBI had "reached no definitive judgment on the precise motivations of the killer." In fact, the FBI had a pretty good idea given that Omar Mateen called 911 and pledged his loyalty to ISIS.

Second Amendment At Risk

The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals struck a major blow against the Second Amendment this week. In an opinion written by a Clinton appointee, the court declared, "We hold that the Second Amendment does not preserve or protect a right of a member of the general public to carry concealed firearms in public."

This will no doubt be quite a shock to pro-Second Amendment residents in the states covered by the 9th Circuit, which includes Alaska, Arizona, California, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Oregon and Washington.
