Party Divisions (DHS Funding Fight)

Party Divisions (DHS Funding Fight)

Despite the pressure brought to bear upon House Republicans during the recent DHS funding debate-in spite of the patently unconstitutional actions of this administration-over fifty of them refused to submit to the will of Obama’s factotum in the House of Representatives. Unsurprisingly, there are now rumors of a push by conservative, constitutionalist members to...

Doing The President’s Bidding

Doing The President’s Bidding

The Senate Judiciary Committee approved Loretta Lynch’s nomination today, sending it to the full body for an up or down vote. You can watch the proceedings here, courtesy of C-SPAN. Unsurprisingly, the only Republicans to support her were Orrin Hatch, Jeff Flake, and Lindsey Graham, three of the most zealous members of the treason...

Speaking Freely

The insanity of multiculturalism as it’s practiced in Europe, expressed more eloquently and succinctly than any statesman. For a deep dive into freedom of  expression’s foes, I would suggest reading Frankie Boyle’s essay on offense and free speech. Although not touching directly upon the nature of the threat posed to the European people and...

The Danish Problem

The Danish Problem

You’ll have trouble finding an accurate description of the motivation behind the terrorist attacks which took place in Copenhagen a little over a week ago, at least so far as the major media outlets are concerned. Even as European Jewry is being figuratively herded back into the ghetto, the newspapers and networks ostensibly responsible...

Personal and Public Ethics

Personal and Public Ethics

The resignation of John Kitzhaber should come as no surprise to those of us who’ve been monitoring the career of both he and his inamorata, whose recent past includes the disclosure of immigration fraud. A revelation that dovetailed perfectly with this particular couple’s militant open borders activism, including an ACLU-endorsed campaign to invest illegal...

The Rule Of Law

The Rule Of Law

Kudos to Judge Andrew Hanen, bête noire of the treason lobby, for being the first person to put a halt-albeit, temporarily-to Barack Obama’s most recent lawless executive action. We recommend reading Legal Insurrection’s analysis of Judge Hanen’s Temporary Injunctive Order, which includes generous excerpts, as well as a pdf file of the judge’s complete decision. Our friend...

Islamic Isolation

  It’s funny, because this sounds a lot like a cell to me. Perhaps not quite as ambitious as the one which orchestrated the September 11th attacks, or even the group that planned the London massacre of July 7, 2005. However, there’s still a lot we haven’t learned about the most recent outbreak of...

Impious Speech

Impious Speech

Update: Audio of the moment the attack commenced.  As we saw during the horrific attacks in France, the Pakistani siege of Mumbai, and almost every other recent jihadist wave, the small minority of extremists have carefully selected their next targets. Courtesy of World Post, an account of the attack on a Copenhagen synagogue.

John Boehner Gets Tough

John Boehner Gets Tough

Sort of.  Unmannerly language aside, I doubt that the Speaker will be doing much heavy lifting in this regard. Amnesty is one mud sandwich Mr. Boehner actually enjoys eating.

Jobless in America

Jobless in America

Despite the intentionally deceptive narrative crafted for public consumption by this administration and its accomplices in the news media, the jobs picture in the United States continues to be dismal, as the CEO of Gallup has declared in an extraordinary interview on Fox News recently. Even as millions of Americans fruitlessly scramble for gainful employment,...
