Tom Cotton Takes The Initiative For Immigration Patriots Against Pro-Amnesty Uniparty

As federal negotiations between the White House and the Senate descend into the high-pressure environment of a government shutdown, the contributions of Arkansas Republican Senator Tom Cotton have been recognized by pro-America immigration patriots as a decisive presence in blocking the attempted amnesty of up to a million DACA illegal aliens. Senator Cotton, viewed by some as taking up the former mantle of now-Attorney General Jeff Sessions in serving as the voice of American citizens concerned about mass immigration and illegal alien crime-was described by sources familiar with the matter as making the insistence that any potential designation of legal… Keep Reading

Trump: Time To Go Nuclear…on The Dems

President Trump on Sunday continued to blast Democrats over immigration throughout the showdown and urged Republicans to make use of the “Nuclear Option” to achieve a long-term resolution. “Great to see how hard Republicans are fighting for our Military and Safety at the Border.

Democrats and Republicans have been at loggerheads because the Senate didn’t pass a temporary spending bill – a C.R., or… Keep Reading

Control Of The Senate Hinges On 12 Critical Races In 2018 Midterms

While the Democratic Party hopes to capitalize on its victory in the Alabama special election to win back control of the Senate, the sheer number of seats they must defend, especially in states won by President Trump in 2016, makes the prospect of wresting back control of the Senate a significant challenge at best. Heading into the 2018 midterms, Republicans hold a slim 51-47 majority, with two seats held by independents who caucus with the Democrats. Democrats are poised to defend 25 seats (including both independents), while Republicans must defend eight. While the lopsided number of contested seats held by… Keep Reading
