A fantastic explanation of the wild inconsistency and baseless arguments of those defending sanctuary cities.

The Imperial Judiciary

The Imperial Judiciary

To the surprise of no one, an Obama bundler sitting on the 9th Circuit has enjoined Section 9(a) of President Trump’s executive order targeting sanctuary cities. Just like the federal judges who blocked previous, eminently Constitutional executive orders tackling this problem, this one used the non-textual statements of the President as justification for his actions. For those of you who would like a more detailed explanation of why using speeches, statements, and other non-statutory words by lawmakers and the executive branch to make law is such a bad idea, I’d recommend reading the late Justice Scalia’s A Matter Of Interpretation.

The Great Crime (Remembering The Armenian Genocide)

April 24, 2017
The Great Crime (Remembering The Armenian Genocide)

Today marks the 102nd anniversary of an unfathomable crime against humanity. The precursor to The Holocaust, the Armenian genocide involved the systematic deportation and elimination of over 1.5 million Armenian Christians living within the Ottoman Empire. The Federalist has published a useful explanation of what this series of atrocities entailed, as well an answer to the question of why the current Turkish state refuses to acknowledge its responsibility for this heinous crime. The New York Times has a fascinating article about a Turkish historian who’s uncovered documents which directly refute the concerted campaign of denial waged by his country’s government.

For more good reading material, I would recommend previous posts on this very important subject.

No Rest For The Wicked (French Terror Attack)

April 20, 2017

Update: The Islamic State has claimed responsibility. 

Violent Islamists apparently demonstrate their civic pride by opening fire on crowds of infidels. France 24 has the details. It should be noted that French authorities were already pursuing terror cells throughout the country in the prelude to Sunday’s presidential election, the first to be held while under siege. An illuminating comment on the current state of affairs in France was made by a correspondent for the BBC, who observed that French intelligence and military forces believe there are too many Islamists-a little under 10,000 to be precise-to monitor each one individually.

Which raises the question: wouldn’t it be a more practical use of resources to prevent Islamists from settling in France in the first place? Just a thought.

April Fools

April Fools

April 1, 2017.  A 3 event day. It could have been a four, but that would be way too much ‘fun’. After the Health March, the April Fools Parade and my afternoon jaunt with the BLM Commies, I had no regrets for having skipped the People’s Filibuster. Moving on…

What Doesn’t Kill Us (Help Lisa Fight AML)

What Doesn’t Kill Us (Help Lisa Fight AML)

Cancer is universally loathed and feared. I’ve lost cousins, grandparents, and friends to this disease, and I’m sure our readers could tell their own terrible stories. That’s why it’s important to help those who are currently fighting this disease. One of them is a local woman whose dreams of becoming a nurse have been postponed by acute myeloid leukemia.

She’s currently hosting a very successful fundraiser intended to defray the costs of an expensive immunotherapy treatment for this disease. You can contribute, if so moved, by visiting her GoFundMe page.

The Spirit Of America

Update: Photos of events held throughout the country. 

Tomorrow will see rallies held across the nation expressing support for President Trump and his platform. Presumably, there will also be counter-protests, although hopefully this time the participants will be able to restrain their penchant for savagery, destruction of private property, and unrestrained violence against those peaceably assembling.

Stand For Truth (Basta Fidel)

Stand For Truth (Basta Fidel)

 

Despite the encomia heaped upon the late Fidel Castro over the past few days, from both tyrannical regimes and morally inverted Western leaders, the man who turned Cuba into a tropical gulag had no redeeming features. He ruined his nation, turning a once a thriving-if troubled-island into a testament to the failure of socialism and hellishness of totalitarian rule. Read More »

Speaking Truth To Power

Speaking Truth To Power

To the surprise of no one, the reporters, editors and publishers whose revolting fealty to Hillary Clinton, exposed in excruciating detail through Wikileaks, resulted in an historic loss for the Democratic Party have learned nothing from Tuesday’s Trumpslide. Instead of reflecting upon how media institutions rigging the primary process against Bernie Sanders, then conducting an embarrassing, 9 month-long editorial jihad against Donald Trump, might have led voters to reject the chosen one, they have spent the past 2 days regurgitating stories about fake SJW-created hate crimes.
