Modern Woman

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. She’s currently promoting her new work, Heretic: Why Islam Needs A Reformation Now,...

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.

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...

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...

Irish Travelers

  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.

Next In Line

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...

W. II

W. II

One of the recurring themes of Jeb Bush’s political life is his low estimation of American citizens, especially those of the native-born kind. Whether he’s pontificating idiotically on the fecundity of border-crossers, or disparaging our entrepreneurial zeal, Dubya’s younger brother never fails to miss an opportunity to gratuitously bash the people whose votes he presumably...

Make Way For Hillary

Make Way For Hillary

Although technically outside this website’s purview, I feel compelled to touch upon Hillary Clinton’s painfully uncomfortable press conference yesterday. You can watch it in its entirety courtesy of Fox News, but I would also suggest reading a surprisingly good analysis of the speech published, oddly enough, in the Los Angeles Times. What makes this event,...

Garden State Grifter

Garden State Grifter

It would appear that the federal government is close to charging the senior Senator from the Soprano State with corruption charges stemming from his relationship to Democratic Party ATM Salomon Melgen. Unlike the arrest of a criminal alien sex offender which Mr. Menendez once employed, this decision doesn’t seem to be directly tied to the...

The Documented

The Documented

Despite initial attempts to market his municipal ID program as a benign attempt to help New Yorkers from ostensibly marginalized communities, it’s hard for anyone-even those in the media whose job increasingly seems to be obfuscation rather than illumination-to credulously argue that these identification cards constitute anything other than a further deliberate erosion of...
