Evidently I missed this interview with Senator Mike Lee on Glenn Beck the other day. I always appreciate how tempered Mike Lee is in his solution based approach to catastrophic events that are designed to wreak havoc on the American People.
Thanks Mike, for taking the time to go on Glenn Beck to #FrameTheDebate for this sensible solution.
“Mexico would require people who enter Mexico, let’s say from Honduras or El Salvador or any of these other countries in Central America… with the intent of claiming asylum, they would have to claim asylum in Mexico rather than in the Untied States. Now, this would be similar to an agreement we already have in place with Canada and a rule imposed by the E.U. for refugees arriving in E.U. countries from Syria,” Lee explained.
“In other words, when people are fleeing a country that is dangerous to them … they ought to apply for asylum in the first country they reach,” he added.

The first article has several links in it. I have briefly checked out a couple of them, for I have not yet had time to peruse them because words mean something and it is important to go through them to discover what is is in the article.
“…while it is important to oppose the policies of an overreaching and unsustainable federal government, we must also make a positive case for conservative ideas; ideas that create a space for a conservative vision of society to flourish.”
“Today, there is much talk about moderation. It reminds me of a former colleague of mine at the EEOC [Equal Employment Opportunity Commission] who often joked that he was a ‘gun-toting moderate’ – a curiously oxymoronic perspective. Just think of that: dying over half a loaf.”
There is a big difference between a middle road and the middle of the road. There is also a big difference between taking a wrong road and continuing down the wrong road opposed to taking the right middle road that leads you to your destination, the common good for life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
Conservativism is what it is. Everything else is not.
There have been alleged tax plans and rumors of tax plans running rampant for weeks. Today there is a big whoop about the official tax plan however, it is worthy of a little whoop since there is still more to this marathon than shooting out of the starting blocks. There seems to be a severe overselling of the plan and I am hoping there will be enough support for it to keep a continued momentum to stomp excessive taxation and spending into the ground.
WASHINGTON – Sens. Mike Lee (R-UT) and Marco Rubio (R-FL) issued the following statement Thursday in response to the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act released by House Ways and Means Chairman Kevin Brady (R-TX):
“We appreciate the hard work and countless hours our colleagues in the House have put into crafting this legislation. As we’ve long said, tax reform should be about making the code more pro-growth and pro-family. The House bill is an important step in the process.”
“The best way to provide real relief to working families is through a straightforward, significant, and permanent expansion of the child tax credit. We wish the House draft had done more on this front – preferably doubling the credit to $2,000 per child and expanding its applicability to payroll taxes. We look forward to working with our colleagues to make sure working families are moved to the front of the line in the Senate bill.”
