Amnesty activist dissed by Ann Coulter for hug met with Trump in 2013

Trump met with youth immigrant leaders Jose Machado, Diego Sanchez and nationally renowned Dreamer Gaby Pacheco of The Bridge Project at Trump Towers in New York at the request of Antonio Tijerino, President and CEO of the Hispanic Heritage Foundation. (via NBC News)

An interesting connection that never seemed to make it to the mainstream media has to do with Ann Coulter, Donald Trump, and an illegal immigration activist who “helped persuade President Obama to implement the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program and was the first illegal immigrant Latina to testify before Congress.”

Last year, some readers may remember when an illegal immigrant activist named Gaby Pacheco weirdly asked Ann Coulter for a hug during an interview with Univision’s activist journalist Jorge Ramos. Coulter declined the hug, saying that she was recovering from the flu.

Some Advice from a Kiwi Cruz Supporter – how do we make the best of the Trump Disaster

By: Trevor Loudon | New Zeal

No sugar-coating it folks. Donald Trump’s victory over Senator Ted Cruz in the Republican primary is a disaster for the Republican Party,  the Republic and for what’s left of the free world. The question is – how do Constitutional Conservatives strategize to mitigate this “dumpster fire” in the short-term, salvage what we can of our movement and turn this catastrophe to our advantage in the longer term.

The first thing is DO NOT PANIC. Trump supporters are now flooding social media with enticements, olive branches, threats and abuse – all designed to get us signed up for the Trump Train. Their main argument is that we if don’t climb aboard, we are somehow endorsing Hillary Clinton.

I am equally terrified of a Clinton (or the backup Uncle Joe Biden/Pocahontas Warren ticket) victory. But blindly piling in behind Trump is not the best way to stop that. Also it surrenders, without a fight, the greatest power Constitutional Conservatives still have left – our bargaining power, our voting and financial leverage, and most importantly, the moral high ground.

I believe we need to work out how best to achieve several things.

They are in order of priority:

  1. Maximize the chances of the increased liberty, security and expansion of the free world (including my beloved New Zealand).
  2. Maximize the chances the the United States of America will survive and grow and prosper as a Constitutional Republic and the leader of an ever-expanding free world.
  3. Maximize the chances that the Constitutional Conservative movement will continue to grow and become the dominant political force in that Republic for many generations to come.
  4. Maximize the chances that the Republican Party can return to its Constitutional roots, or that a viable alternative force may replace it.
  5. Maximize the chances that our champion Ted Cruz will play a major role in that process. Preferably as the soonest possible two-term President of the United States.

Is that ambitious enough for you folks? Is that in line with your political values? Would these goals give your children and grandchildren the best possible shot at achieving the American Dream?

For those of us about to join the Libertarian Party, form a third party, or just stay home, I want you to consider one thing. We do not have the luxury of twenty years to turn this around. We don’t have 5 years. We may have as little as 6 months. Why do I say that? One word – AMNESTY.

Trump: Fighter jets aggressive because Russians ‘really dislike Obama’

By: Renee Nal | New Zeal

"The repeated flights by the Sukhoi SU-24 warplanes, which also flew near the ship a day earlier, were so close they created wake in the water, with 11 passes, the official said." - Business Insider

“The repeated flights by the Sukhoi SU-24 warplanes, which also flew near the ship a day earlier, were so close they created wake in the water, with 11 passes, the official said.” – Business Insider

On Thursday evening, presumptive Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump had an interesting exchange with Bret Baier of Special Report on Fox News. During the discussion, Trump declined to answer whether he ever met Vladimir Putin and observed that Russians “want to be friendly with the United States.” Trump also implied that he is softening his position on illegal immigration, telling Baier that “…we have to negotiate. We have to see…” when asked if his illegal immigration stance is likely going to be more “nuanced.”

Some highlights:

  • The revelation was made during the interview that “in a matter of weeks,” Donald Trump will be receiving classified briefings from the FBI and the CIA.
  • According to Trump, Ted Cruz’s dad Rafael said some “really terrible things” about Trump (he didn’t), which evidently prompted him to claim that Cruz’s dad was involved in the Kennedy assassination (which Trump previously told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer that “of course” he does not believe).
  • Trump is getting used to his nickname for Hillary Clinton: “Crooked Hillary.”

Our Watcher’s Council Nominations – Post-Constitutional Edition

The Watcher’s Council

Donald Trump

Welcome to the Watcher’s Council, a blogging group consisting of some of the most incisive blogs in the ‘sphere and the longest running group of its kind in existence. Every week, the members nominate two posts each, one written by themselves and one written by someone from outside the group for consideration by the whole Council. Then we vote on the best two posts, with the results appearing on Friday morning.

Council News:

This week we were sad indeed to say goodbye to long-time Council member Brent Parrish at The Right Planet.

Brent is taking a hiatus from blogging to concentrate on family and business concerns, and all of us wish him the best. And of course, as a plugged in member of the WoW community, we’ll look forward to hearing from him in the future in our Forum, our inter-Council threads and perhaps, even an article as a non-council submission if he gets the bug to write again, which we certainly hope he will.

This means we currently have a vacancy on the Watcher’s Council, the oldest and most established blogging group in the ‘sphere. Any talented, interested parties should contact me directly by leaving a comment on any story on JoshuaPundit, including your name, site name and e-mail info as well as anything else you wish to include. Needless to say, it won’t be published, but I will respond promptly to your inquiry and tell you what’s involved.

So, let’s see what we have for you this week…

As an American liberal with impeccable credentials, I would like to say that political correctness is going to kill American liberalism if it is not fought to the death by people like me for the dangers it represents to free speech, to the exchange of ideas, to openheartedness, or to the spirit of art itself. – Best selling author Pat Conroy

Those who make conversations impossible, make escalation inevitable. – Stephen Molyneux
