K Street’s Man On Capitol Hill

September 30, 2014
K Street’s Man On Capitol Hill

If there’s anything you can count on in Washington politics, it’s that Speaker John Boehner will put his foot into mouth, usually during or prior to a critically important election cycle. So it is with his recent comments regarding amnesty, which he pledged to enact at some point during the next session of Congress. A more diplomatic, or less stupid, man might try to down-play his support for a universally loathed policy right before conservative Republicans head to the polls, but not Mr. Boehner. I suppose the lure of yet more Zuckerberg cash is too tempting to restrain his idiotic outbursts, re: immigration, for more than a fortnight. 

And they wonder why Republicans in Congress are so viscerally unpopular with the American public. We who have been paying attention to the utterances of people like Congressman Boehner and Paul Ryan, on the other hand, are not confused at all.

Jobless in America

September 28, 2014
Jobless in America

One of the inescapable facts of our economic recovery is that millions of individuals continue to struggle to obtain gainful employment of any sort. A recent study by the John J. Heldrich Center for Workplace Development at Rutgers University confirms what most of us already knew. Namely, that those who have been unemployed for six months or longer are finding themselves locked out of the job market. You can read the full report for yourselves here, but you should be warned that it won’t be a pleasant experience. More than 3 million Americans have remained unemployed for more than six months, while 2 million have been unemployed for over a year. And while the percentage of workers belonging to the former category has declined from its height in 2010, it still remains greater than it was during the catastrophic 1983 recession. Read More »

For Emma (Childhood Cancer Awareness)

For Emma (Childhood Cancer Awareness)

For those of you who might not know, this is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. September’s color is gold, which is symbolically apt in a number of ways. Most importantly, because it represents something of great and lasting value. Emma Grace Mitchell was just such a treasure, even though she preferred pink and purple herself. Nine days ago, she succumbed to a disease she had heroically fought for nearly half of her life, a life that was marred not only by the disease itself, but by the treatments-and side effects thereof-which sap the health and alter the lives of the patients subjected to them. Undergoing chemotherapy is an experience whose physical and emotional ramifications are inconceivable, thankfully, for most of us. But experiencing it when your baby teeth are barely older than you are is something too heartbreaking for words. Read More »

Hollywood Shrugged (Seavey and Perry’s Fall Debut)

Tune in to the latest podcast of Seavey and Perry on Culture, where you’ll discover whether ideological purity can be reconciled with good art, why Hercules is very angry, and what the best part of the Marxist appropriation of the environment which took place in the middle of Manhattan this weekend was. For those comic book and Cold War buffs who would like to contribute to the production and distribution of Andre Krayewski’s brilliant graphic novel/quasi-memoir, you still have a little bit over two days to do so!

Here’s the Kickstarter link to Skyliner! As for the rest of you, enjoy the show.

 

Working For A Living

Working For A Living

In a gubernatorial race where both candidates are to a greater or lesser degree beholden to the open borders lobby, notwithstanding the requisite pre-election posturing of the GOP standard-bearer, a genuine debate about the impact of  mass immigration upon California has not materialized, alas. Even so, the public policies which have irrevocably transformed the Golden State over the past three decades continue to be felt by ordinary Californians and scrutinized by academic scholars. Both groups can’t help but recognize the devastating impact that generations of illegal migration and low-skilled immigration have had upon a state which once served as the sum of hopes for Americans throughout this country, but no longer.

The Mujahideen Take Manhattan

The Mujahideen Take Manhattan

 

More in-depth coverage of the terrorist cavalcade which took place in Midtown last week, courtesy of our good friends at The Silent Majority No More. While some large news networks overseas have seen fit to cover the orgy of violence-besotted jihadis who marched in this parade, albeit with the requisite sophistic denials from  its Muslim spokesmen, the absence of coverage from our own drive-by media of the more unpleasant elements of the Religion of Peace is striking-although not surprising.

Congratulations once again to Urban Infidel, Pamela Geller, TSMNM and all of the intrepid bloggers, journalists, and patriotic, anti-sharia freedom activists who risked their safety in order to inform the American public of this growing domestic threat!

Islam On Parade

September 18, 2014

Kudos to Pamela Geller, as well as Urban Infidel and The Silent Majority No More, for risking their safety to document the loathsome, yet officially sanctioned, display of xenophobia, anti-semitism, misogyny, and hatred known as the Muslim Day Parade. Every year the morlocks our federal government, in its infinite wisdom, has invited into America’s bosom colonize Madison Avenue in order to assert their puissance. As alluded to in the interview, the most recognizable symbol of jihadist fervor was absent this year-no doubt out of political expediency-but that didn’t stop the terrorist faithful, including supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood, from polluting one of Manhattan’s central commercial arteries.  Read More »

Trek’s Trek (Honoring Brian Terry)

Trek’s Trek (Honoring Brian Terry)

 

Kudos to intrepid investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson for bringing attention to a noble cause. As most of you know, the investigation into the death of Agent Brian Terry at the hands of Mexican narco-insurgents has gone nowhere for nearly the past four years, in no small part due to the obstruction of this administration. Even so, the friends and family of Brian have never stopped speaking out on behalf of justice.

Team Emma (Join The Fight Against Childhood Cancer)

Unfortunately, there aren’t many people whose lives haven’t been touched by cancer in one form or another. One of the most heartbreaking forms, as well as one whose research is perhaps the most grossly underfunded, is pediatric cancer. That’s why the need to support those suffering from it is so urgently needed, as in the case of  a beautiful, strong, sweet little girl from Alabama named Emma Grace Mitchell. Read More »

Show of Unity (Anti-Terror Rally This Weekend)

With civilization under continuous bombardment, from Nigeria to Iraqi Kurdistan to the kibbutzim in Israel threatened by Iranian-supplied weaponry, it’s time that Americans stood up in opposition to the wave of Islamic terror engulfing the globe. To that end, the indefatigable Pamela Geller will be hosting an AFDI-sponsored rally in support of the Jewish State, as well as the religious minorities facing extermination at the hands of Islamic State barbarians, this Sunday.
