The Surveillance State Arrives

This past month has been filled with such a glut of information that it’s no surprise some items slipped past  an already news-saturated public.

Stand For Truth (Basta Fidel)

Stand For Truth (Basta Fidel)

  Despite the encomia heaped upon the late Fidel Castro over the past few days, from both tyrannical regimes and morally inverted Western leaders, the man who turned Cuba into a tropical gulag had no redeeming features. He ruined his nation, turning a once a thriving-if troubled-island into a testament to the failure of socialism...

No Refuge

No Refuge

Mr. Chapin raises a pertinent question, prompted by the jihadist assault upon Ohio State University-a gun-free zone, it should be noted. Why are they here? Is it so deluded liberals can enjoy tales of rampant Islamophobia told by picaresque scamps who’ll then go on to try and murder them?

Abajo Fidel!

Abajo Fidel!

Fidel Castro, like his psychopathic patsy Ernesto Guevara Lynch, was a man who relished terrorizing civilians-in Cuba, the United States, throughout Latin America and the Caribbean, and even in Sub-Saharan Africa-even if it meant the immolation of millions in a nuclear holocaust. Unlike Che-who in addition to being a sadist and mass murderer was...

Drain The Swamp

  A pick that threatens all the work done by Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch. It seems like racial arsonist and world-class grifter Al Sharpton has stumbled upon the truth of the matter. The left’s opposition to Jeff Sessions is not driven by a genuine fear of how he’ll approach civil rights issues-almost all...

Europe’s Rightward March

Europe’s Rightward March

Update: A thoughtful leftist analyzes the 1st round of France’s election.  The first round of primary voting for Les Républicains is complete and it looks like Nicolas Sarkozy’s bid to return to the Élysée Palace is over. For those of you who are Marine Le Pen fans, this might appear to be bad news, although the coronation of...

No Platforming Half The Country

No Platforming Half The Country

Contrary to the misconceptions perpetuated by the news media, the latest Twitter purge is not confined to accounts belonging to the alt right. Nor is it targeted exclusively at those accounts which violate Twitter’s terms of service. As  acclaimed actor James Woods explained in his farewell to the social networking behemoth, this is actually...

The Reality Based Community

The Reality Based Community

Yesterday one of America’s worst mayors met the President-elect for a friendly chat about the hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens living in this city. The most striking aspect of this meeting is the hubris of Bill de Blasio, someone who thinks he can make demands of an incoming President who was elected upon...
