Keep Out The Bushes

Keep Out The Bushes

  It’s no surprise that George W. Bush’s younger brother decided to skip the Iowa Freedom Summit this weekend. The notion of someone who can barely disguise his contempt for American citizens and workers sharing the same stage as Congressman Steve King is fairly preposterous, once you stop to think it over. Instead, the...

The Shrill Minority

The Shrill Minority

It seems that the popularity of New York City’s recently introduced municipal ID has exceeded the capacity of our notoriously competent government officials to meet burgeoning demand. Whether issuing tends of thousands of breeder documents to individuals who have a tenuous relationship with observing legal norms is a good idea remains to be seen....

Countering The Open Borders Narrative

An alternative to the nationally televised deception known as President Obama’s State of the Union address, the words of Mo Brooks are precisely what Congress needs as this administration continues its unprecedented assault upon the Constitution.

One of the most dispiriting developments in the over four decades since...

To See And Speak The Truth

The latest issue of Charlie Hebdo has finally hit the streets of France, no doubt displeasing genocidal Islamic sociopaths and their culturally Marxist, Islamophilic SJW sympathizers alike. The depth of fear of the poisonous, warped ideology which has paralyzed the gatekeepers of power is on full display, as the contemptible reaction of a Sky...

The Invisible Terrorist

The Invisible Terrorist

Bosch Fawstin shows how it’s done. Never forget that there are artists and writers who have been forced to live in hiding because of our government’s willingness to accommodate obscurantist, medieval scum keen to exploit our culture’s misplaced generosity. Thank God there are still individuals with enough integrity and conscience to name and shame the...

The Meccan War Criminal (PBUH)

The Meccan War Criminal (PBUH)

The graphic above is taken from the brilliant Cognitive Bias Parade, which is one of many online venues that have chosen to show their solidarity with the 12 martyrs of Charlie Hebdo by embracing the satirical defiance which so aggrieves the soldiers of Allah. The insincere protestations of America’s intellectual gatekeepers notwithstanding, the reaction...

Cowardice, Not Compassion

Update: As promised by Brit Hume, Fox News has republished the offending cartoons. If you’re waiting expectantly for other drive-by media to follow suit, don’t hold your breath. There’s only one religion in contemporary society whose mockery is verboten.  Mark Steyn, as usual, cuts to the heart of the matter. The refusal by almost...
