Over 90% pass citizenship test, with answers given out in advance


Not just anyone can become a citizen of the United States. You first have to come into the country legally. Or illegally, and get amnesty. Then you have to apply for citizenship. And there is a brutal civics test! It is so difficult, that the government decided to give out the answers in advance.

The civics portion of the citizenship test consists of up to 10 questions chosen from 100 questions, the answers to which are listed on the federal government's website. Applicants must get at least six right. That means people who want to become citizens have to pre-learn the answers to at least 95 short questions! But there are some real tough questions, like,

"What is the name of the President?",

"If the President can no longer serve, who becomes President?",

"What do we show loyalty to when we say the Pledge of Allegiance?"

"Name one state that borders Mexico",

"Where is the Statue of Liberty?", and

"When is Independence Day?"

There, that's six questions! If you know all the answers, you know enough to become an American!

It is no surprise, then, that over 90% of applicants pass the test. But it should be equally of little surprise that most applicants, having the questions and answers in advance, simply memorize the answers, learning little or nothing about American history.

Even worse, if you can claim that you have a "mental disability" you don't even have to take the test.

Why not instead have applicants actually study American history and answer a few essay questions? From what I see in the media, immigrants (legal and otherwise), are often bright valedictorians who are at or near the top of their class.

Look at how Australia is beefing up its citizenship requirements:

Aspiring citizens will undergo tougher tests on their English language skills and ability to demonstrate "Australian values", PM Malcolm Turnbull said.

Other changes to the citizenship process include:

  • A more stringent English language test involving reading, writing, listening and speaking;
  • Providing evidence of integration into the community, such as employment history, school enrolment or membership of community organisations;
  • Having already been a permanent resident for at least four years;
  • Allowing applicants to apply only three times, and automatically failing anyone who cheats on a test.

Do you think immigrants should have to pass a citizenship test for which they do not already have the answers?

Mentally challenged border hopping shoplifting Dreamer deported


A so-called "Dreamer" was deported in February, the first Dreamer deported by the Trump Administration. President Trump, who had promised to end the unconstitutional program when running for president, went back on his promise after being elected, so the fact that even one Dreamer was deported is big news: that's one more Dreamer than Obama would have deported. You see, elections do matter!

NEA taxpayer dollars helps artists feel good about themselves


The Washington Post tried to create what it thought was a clever agit/prop video in favor of the National Endowment for the Arts. Rather than showing NEA funding in big cities, the video explored funding largely in rural, conservative Indiana, represented by Republican congressmen. The hope was to whip up support among Republicans to save the NEA.

Will Trump's reversal on Syrian refugees make him a one term President?


Supporters of Donald Trump, many of whom prominently campaigned for his election, are outraged by all the campaign promises he has reversed himself on--NATO, military action in Syria, the Federal Reserve, and the repeal of Obamacare, to name a few. But the straw that may break the camel's back is the issue of immigration and border security.

The liberal media, so desperate for anti-Trump stories to feed into its narrative, is looking to use something as innocuous as the White House Easter egg roll as a yardstick to show "yet another" failure of the Trump administration. There are many legitimate grounds to criticize the Trump administration on ("Dreamers", more Syrian refugees, not supporting full Obamacare repeal), but an Easter egg roll? Come on!
