News and Analysis


November 1, 2014

Most of you are probably familiar with the recent plight of Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi, an American Marine imprisoned by the Mexican government for the past seven months for inadvertently crossing over the border with legal firearms inside of his motor vehicle. Sgt. Tahmooressi’s family, as well as millions of Americans from across the country who have been following his ordeal, have reason to rejoice today because he will finally be reunited with his loved ones on American soil. Gold Star Mother and citizen activist Debbie Lee has already created a Facebook page intended to welcome Sgt. Tahmooressi home, which we recommend you visit when you have the opportunity.

As the Fox News article about his release notes, this could not have happened without tremendous political pressure exerted upon the Mexican government. It’s an instructive lesson for those of us who have been fighting to change the dismal status quo regarding immigration matters.

Semper Fidelis.

Anti-social Media (Seavey and Perry Discuss Proper Netiquette)

What better way to celebrate Halloween than listening to the latest podcast of Seavey and Perry on Culture, which explores the terrifying contemporary phenomenon known as Facebook?! In addition to plumbing the depths of social media, we also tackle Michael Keaton’s latest attempt to recapture his 1980s box office mojo, as well as the exceptionally popular motion picture Gone Girl, which appears to have become a cultural touchstone after being in public circulation for a little less than two months.

Tell us what you think of it in the comments below, or on the Seavey/Perry Facebook page! Feedback is always appreciated.

The Coming Deluge (Post-Election Amnesty Plans)

To paraphrase the late Mary McCarthy, every word he says is a lie, including ‘and’ and ‘the.’

Occupied New York

Update: Seth Barron, of City Council Watch, has an invaluable op-ed in the New York Post exploring why this law is so galling.  

As most of you probably know by now, the verminous members of the New York City Council have enacted yet another law intended to allay any fears the thousands of criminal aliens residing in the Big Apple may have about potential deportation. In this case, the bill would forbid cooperation between the Department of Correction and NYPD and federal immigration officials when an illegal alien has been detained in the City. Refusing to honor immigration detainers is a goal for which open borders fanatics have lobbied political officials for several years.

Prepare to hear more stories of police officers and civilians ruthlessly murdered by these privileged aliens, although don’t expect any expressions of remorse or regret from figures like Donna Lieberman. Admitting that you cheered the passage of a bill which will result in the deaths of innocent people-even if they are Americans-is not something that sounds good in a political sound bite, however much spin you put on it.

More details about the presumed identity of the suspect in yesterday’s shootings in Parliament Hill are slowly trickling in. Notwithstanding the absurdist headline, I would recommend reading national security reporter Colin Freeze’s account in The Globe and Mail. As The Daily Telegraph points out, the inspiration for the latest wave of jihadist attacks draws from a well much deeper than Canada’s military entanglements abroad, notwithstanding the armchair theorizing of Islamic apologists like Glenn Greenwald. As demonstrated yet again by yesterday’s horrific events, the zealotry of the Islamic convert, like the ummah itself, knows no fixed geographic boundaries.

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 »
