Lisa Boothe didn’t take the bait on the whole “humanitarian crisis” myth that Obama and the Democrats have woven around this summer’s invasion of our southern border. She stayed on the message that the reason we are facing our current illegal immigration crisis is because of President Obama's failed policies undermining the rule of law. Boothe showed the GOP the way forward between now and Election Day 2014… if Republicans will only listen.

Today, the Democratic Party represents the narrow interests of race-based pressure groups, like La Raza, and the liberal urban elite, like Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, who are far removed from the day-to-day cares of working Americans and their families.

Conservatives got the message loud and clear that Texas Governor Rick Perry is not one of us. He joined the inside-the-Beltway political class when he hired Henry Barbour, the shadowy figure behind infamous race-baiting ads in the recent Mississippi GOP Senate runoff and Steve Schmidt, the brains behind John McCain’s disastrous 2008 presidential bid and the inside operative who trashed Governor Sarah Palin throughout the campaign.

Dan Rosenberg, whose son Drew was killed by an illegal alien, speaks on behalf of the over 100,000 victims killed by illegal aliens and says the sheer mass of illegal aliens entering the criminal justice system has corrupted our political and legal system. When did the lawbreakers become the victims and the victims are either ignored or called bigots?

Those who adhere to and seek to impose, whether through violence or by stealth, brutally repressive, totalitarian, misogynistic, homophobic, intolerant and anti-constitutional shariah on others – have made no secret of their determination to conquer and destroy us and the rest of the civilized world.

Today, illegal aliens make up 29% of the U.S. prison population – or 500,000 illegals. Those numbers are about to soar. This latest invasion of illegals is not about poor children coming here for a better life. It’s about criminal violence and it’s about money: a $300 billion a year industry of drugs and gang crime. 

We reviewed the statements of Senator Rand Paul, LTC and former Congressman Allen West and Senator Ted Cruz and found that all agree on one policy: “peace through strength.” The challenge for Tea Partiers going forward is how to pursue that policy in the face of an implacable Islamist cultural enemy that has been all too ready to provoke the U.S. into military intervention through unconventional attacks on our interests abroad and terrorism in our own homeland.

CHQ contributor Doug Bandow argues that rather than turn the Islamic State into a U.S. military priority, and take America into war, we should organize an Islamic coalition against the Islamic State.

    Disinterring Lois Lerner's emails is important not, as some say, because they might establish a direct link to the White House, but because the Tea Party and conservative groups — not to mention people with a disinterested care for the preservation of democracy — deserve to know the truth about the nest of bureaucratic vipers they were up against.
