Dream On

March 28, 2015
Dream On

One of the hallmarks of the open borders movement in this country, beyond its contempt for the basic concept of national sovereignty, is its overwhelming sense of entitlement. And no branch of the movement exhibits this trait more conspicuously than the media-created phenomenon known as the Dreamers, i.e., illegal immigrants who were brought to this country as children. A perfect illustration of this petulant self-regard is the impending threat of Dreamers to go on a hunger strike because Governor Cuomo has not deferred to their will. Naturally, the Marxist academics at the City University of New York have thrown their support behind this piece of political theater, even as the rest of the state figuratively shrugs.

Kudos to Jim MacDonald-pictured in the Daily News article linked to above-and other members of NY ICE for standing in opposition to yet another attempt to extort money from New York taxpayers in order to defray the living expenses of people whose families should not even be in this country in the first place. Jim alerted me to this story earlier this week, before Governor Cuomo’s volte-face forced the intended recipients of the Dream Act to cry into their microphones. 

Finally, a victory for American citizens.

Modern Woman

March 26, 2015

One of my heroes-and an inspiration for anyone around the globe fighting for humanistic, Western values-is Ayaan Hirsi Ali. A woman whose life is actually in peril for espousing her beliefs-unlike some media martyrs-Ms. Ali personifies courage in our modern age. Read More »

Stuffing The Ballot Box

Stuffing The Ballot Box

In the hallowed tradition of Tammany Hall, New York City’s Democratic Party apparatus has found yet another way to bastardize our city’s electoral process. The anti-American caucus on the City Council has decided to moot a bill which would permit non-citizen voting in municipal elections. Read More »

Stopping Lynch

Stopping Lynch

One  overlooked aspect of the current widespread conservative opposition to Loretta Lynch’s nomination is the hostility gun-owners have for a woman who, at least on policy matters, differs very little from Barack Obama’s guard dog. This antipathy has now been expressed publicly by national  gun rights organizations-including the Gun Owners of America-which have begun lobbying wavering legislators before a full vote takes place in the United States Senate.  Read More »

The Hollow Fourth Estate

The Hollow Fourth Estate

One of the mainstays of the Fox News Channel, like every other media property controlled by Rupert Murdoch, is its unstinting support of mass immigration. Granted, Lou Dobbs does have a show on Fox Business, and there are occasional appearances-and even guest hosting spots-for immigration patriots such as Michelle Malkin and Laura Ingraham, but that does not alter the fact that the talking heads on FNC mostly skirt the most important issue facing the American electorate going forward.

Irish Travelers

March 17, 2015

 

We at American Rattlesnake would like to wish our followers, Irish and non-Irish alike, a happy St. Patrick’s Day. Despite the possibility of inclement weather here in the City-a perennial threat on this day-I’m sure that New Yorkers will celebrate boisterously, as is our custom. Read More »

One of the central conceits of open borders fetishists is the assumption that illegal aliens are somehow being denied equal treatment. Equal to whom is the question which is never addressed, let alone answered satisfactorily, and it’s easy to see why. To treat those who have broken the law-many laws, often repeatedly-on par with law-abiding citizens or resident aliens, or those attempting to immigrate to this country lawfully, is to necessarily discriminate against the rest of us in a spectacular fashion.

What You Can Do

Walk Out Of Darkness

February 8, 2015
Walk Out Of Darkness

I don’t often use this space for personal appeals, but feel compelled to do so today. In addition to losing my uncle, John Marmo, earlier this year to suicide, my best friend, Fiona Fort, took her life after struggling with the chronic pain of depression for most of her adult life. Even if you are fortunate enough to have never grieved the loss of a loved one to this disease-or to know someone suffering from suicidal ideation-I urge those of you who can to contribute to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention’s Denver Metro Walk Out of the Darkness Community Walk.

You can read my friend Ann’s story and donate to her cause here.  Read More »

Bye Bye Boehner

January 4, 2015
Bye Bye Boehner

Although the prospect of replacing the current Speaker of the House looks grim at the moment-especially from an historical standpoint-the fact remains that there is widespread dissatisfaction with the leadership, such as it is, of John Boehner. If the quarter of a million letters demanding that he be replaced weren’t an indication of that sentiment, nor the public call for the same by establishmentarian talking head Sean Hannity, then certainly the outpouring of dissent from within his own caucus should serve as a clue that not Speaker Spray Tan is not universally beloved by Republicans in this nation.

NY ICE Counter DREAMers (Rally Tomorrow Afternoon)

NY ICE Counter DREAMers (Rally Tomorrow Afternoon)
Even as the federal government willfully violates the Constitution in order to assiduously cater to the needs of millions of illegal aliens, our own state’s leaders are trying to find a way to subsidize the “undocumented” with your wealth. Joanna Marzullo, of New York ICE, is organizing her own response, the details of which you can read after the jump.

NY ICE Rally Against Administrative Amnesty (Today at 7 PM!)

November 20, 2014

This just in, courtesy of Joanna Marzullo, founder of NY ICE: 

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.

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.
