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…

The IRS =/= Big Butts

April 18, 2017

Sir Mix-A-Lot, who extolled the female posterior in “Baby Got Back”, was equally adept at excoriating the grasping IRS.

Riot In The Streets Of Berkeley

Riot In The Streets Of Berkeley

Update: Dan Sanchez wonders: Is it good for liberty? 

Apparently, the revolution will be televised. And tweeted. One of the more interesting comments in response to this article compares the idleness of Berkeley cops to a South American soccer riot that overwhelmed local police officers. Coming nearly 2 months after more destructive riots in the same city-initiated by antifa in order to prevent Milo Yiannopoulos from speaking-it’s not a hyperbolic analogy. Concerns about overly aggressive policing aside, it makes you wonder what the purpose of a police force is if it cannot prevent citizens from being assaulted in the middle of the day.

Justice Delayed (Brian Terry’s Killer Nabbed)

Justice Delayed (Brian Terry’s Killer Nabbed)

The killer of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry has been apprehended in Mexico. Most of you will recall that his murder at the hands of a Mexican rip-crew was the event which unraveled Fast and Furious to the American public. The fact that no one in the Department of Justice was held to account for this abuse of power-or the obstruction of information related to it-illustrates the impunity with which the federal bureaucracy routinely operates.

Too many have lost their lives to our willfully negligent government. Hopefully, all of those responsible for Agent Terry’s death, as well as the deaths of hundreds of innocent Mexican citizens, will eventually be brought to justice.

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

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.
