Happy Trails

Happy Trails

All (good) things must come to an end, as the omnipotent, yet enigmatic, interstellar character Q pointed out to the crew of the USS Enterprise during a particularly harrowing flight. As in Gene Roddenberry-created science-fiction epics, so it is in the world of pop cultural podcasting, which is why this month marks the conclusion of my nearly year-long professional collaboration with my good friend Todd Seavey

Even though Todd is leaving for bigger-and hopefully more lucrative-endeavors, the Perry portion of Seavey and Perry on Culture will persist, as I cycle through a diverse cast of witty anarcho-capitalists willing to plumb the depths of art-both high and low-as well as the current cinematic zeitgeist. Until next month’s edition of Perry & Co., when you’ll discover who my exciting new co-host is, I ask you to enjoy our interview with agorist science-fiction maven J. Neil Schulman, whose name you might recognize from previous podcasts. We discuss the film adaptation of his dystopian novel Alongside Night, among many other scintillating subjects. 

In closing, let me just wish Todd the best of luck in future enterprises and urge you all to follow this site for future updates on my adventures in quasi-political podcasting!

Executive Abandonment

November 24, 2014

When You’ve Lost Jennifer Rubin…

November 22, 2014

One of the most remarkable aspects of this administration’s latest lawless Executive decision is the contempt it’s drawn from circles you wouldn’t normally associate with patriotic immigration reform or concern for the desires of working class Americans. Perhaps the most startling example of this welcome phenomenon is the recent spate of columns penned by the Washington Post’s nominally Republican, reliably open borders Romney booster Jennifer Rubin. Although much of her distaste for the President’s most recent unconstitutional edict is no doubt tied to her desire for a suicidal legislative amnesty enacted by a Republican Congress, the fact that she’s willing to accurately describe the White House’s naked political gambit is praiseworthy nonetheless. 

The fact that Obama has even alienated the most fervent corporate shills and mass immigration enthusiasts among the GOP should give you an inkling of how noxious this politically opportunistic power grab truly is.

As many of you know, Obama is planning on issuing an Executive amnesty later today.  This action is anticipated because the recent mid-term elections were not in his favor.  Obama is showing his hand, and showing he will exceed his rights as President when what he wants goes against the will of the American people he is supposed to represent.

When K Street Comes Calling

When K Street Comes Calling

As we pointed out on Monday, one of the few viable options for Republicans seeking to stop this administration’s unlawful, patently unconstitutional expansion of its policy of wholesale amnesty is withholding congressional funding. Of course, what would a sensible proposal for reining in the imperial presidency be without a GOP leader doing his best to thwart it? In this case, that individual is Appropriations Committee chairman Hal Rogers, who is floating an absurd proposal to enact all of the President’s funding requests, including those which would facilitate his latest unlawful quid pro quo for undocumented citizens

 To add insult to injury, it appears that one of the major donors to Mr. Rogers has a huge financial stake in the enactment of any mass amnesty, which would include the printing of scores of work permits. Here’s a link to a page where you can get in touch with Mr. Rogers, in a neighborly fashion, of course, and express any concerns you might have over this unsettling coincidence.

Cutting The Purse Strings

Cutting The Purse Strings

The chief, if not the only, means of thwarting President Obama’s post-election mass amnesty consists of defunding mechanisms initiated by Congress. Fortunately, there seems to be a boomlet among House Republicans for this very course, as Numbers USA reports. As some analysts have pointed out, there’s always the possibility that this President will simply use discretionary spending earmarked for another purpose in order to defray the expenses of this latest extraconstitutional gambit. 

Even so, I think it’s incumbent upon immigration patriots to force Obama’s hand on this issue. Let’s stand with Senator Sessions and his colleagues in the House, and demand that this administration acknowledge its contempt for the American public.

Breaking The System

Looks like the hyperbolic speculations of some of Obama’s most severe critics were not so preposterous after all. The Cloward-Piven strategy proceeds apace.

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 »
