New York Times Wants Amnesty for Illegal Immigrants, Unless They’re Cuban Doctors Fleeing Communism

The New York Times editorial board supports comprehensive immigration reform that would give millions of illegal immigrants a path to citizenship. In the meantime, the Times’ editors want President Obama to take “big and bold” action on his own that would effectively legalize millions of unauthorized immigrants.

But while the Times does not appear to have a problem with illegal immigration, its editors have found at least one form of legal immigration they want to stop. In an editorial published on Sunday, the board lamented the “Cuban brain drain” brought on by U.S. immigration policy. Specifically, they want to do away with a program allowing highly trained Cuban doctors to defect to the United States while serving on medical missions abroad:

FLASHBACK: Why Conservatives Should Stop Complaining About Obama’s Executive Action on Immigration

AP

Time for a reality check. Conservatives are up in arms about Obama’s proposal to effectively legalize millions of illegal immigrants through executive action, despite his party’s overwhelming losses in this year’s midterms. However, a quick search of the New York Times archives has exposed them for the hypocrites they are. Reprinted with permission.

‘The Dudleys’ Was the Best SNL Skit All Season

SNL The Dudleys

I know, I know. Saturday Night Live used to be better! Specifically, SNL was at its best when you were between the ages of 15 and 20 and started watching it for the first time. You’ll never forget that magical era when Will Ferrell and Chris Kattan (OR Mike Myers and Dana Carvey OR Eddie Murphy and Joe Piscopo OR Bill Murray and Gilda Radner) were anchoring the action. And, eventually, when you hear your kids in 10 years talking about how the Kate McKinnon and Beck Bennett era was the real golden age of SNL, you’ll sadly chuckle and tell them about the magic of the Night at the Roxbury guys (OR Wayne’s World OR Mr. Robinson’s Neighborhood OR Nick the Lounge Singer).

Because everything new is terrible and everything was better when you were younger.

That being said, sometimes SNL captures some of that old magic, deftly skewering some absurd grotesquerie of modern culture for the entertainment of all. For instance, this week the show perfectly captured the idiocy of Twitter outrage culture and the silly smallness of identity politics. Check it:

Pretty Much Everyone Supports Building the Keystone Pipeline, Except Liberal Democrats

President Obama is preparing to take executive action on immigration on the grounds that the American people are generally on his side and “can’t wait” for Congress to act. He is sorely mistaken.

GREEN MENACE: Wind Turbines Deemed a ‘Human Health Hazard’

wind-turbines17

For years, President Obama has exploited public concern over “climate change” in order to wage a brutal campaign of genocide against our nation’s birds. Wind turbines have been turned into highly efficient killing machines, mowing down bald eagles in grisly fashion, dozens at a time. A new finding by science suggests that humans may be next.

Humans fired a probe from Earth onto a comet hurtling through space at unimaginable speed. Human beings did this:

The landing, first envisaged more than 20 years ago, marks the crowning moment of Rosetta’s decadelong cruise through the solar system to get up close and personal with a comet. During its 4 billion mile journey on a track to meet the comet, Rosetta bounced around the inner solar system like a cosmic billiard ball, circling the sun almost four times. … Philae appears to have settled on its three legs in the center of the target zone, a relatively flat elliptical landing area about 550 yards in diameter, away from deep crevices, large boulders and sharp peaks.

Human beings did this! Pretty impressive! And how did humanity respond to this remarkable triumph of human engineering, of unprecedented exploration, of new greatness?

5 Reasons Why Joe Biden Would Make a Fantastic President

Are you ready? (AP)

The Joe Biden presidential campaign has, for all intents and purposes, already begun. With President Obama having abdicated his Veterans Day duties in order to attend a dictator summit in Communist China, Biden stepped up to the plate on Tuesday by laying a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Arlington National Cemetery.

Because the 2014 midterms were terrible for potential Biden challenger Hillary Clinton, and because the chances of President Obama resigning before the new GOP-controlled Senate takes office in January are high, the veep is strongly positioned to lead the Democratic Party into the future.

Here are the top 5 reasons why Joe Biden would make a fantastic president:
