A New Beginning

The fact that Samuel Rodriguez is delivering the invocation is probably not a good sign for immigration patriots, but we shall see. Hopefully, the Trump Era will be a welcome departure from the open borders chaos we’ve had to endure under his predecessor in the Oval Office. Only time will tell.

Melbourne Attack

The Daily Rattle (Pre-Inaugural Edition)

President Obama’s last week in office has brought with it a flood of breaking news. The biggest story, of course, is his commutation of Chelsea Manning’s 35 year prison sentence. My own impression is that his decision is designed as a cynical bit of legacy-building, with the added benefit of perhaps inducing Julian Assange to...

R.I.P. Nat Hentoff (1925-2017)

We learned of Nat Hentoff’s death last night from his son, who was the first to tweet this sad news to the rest of the world. You can read his full obituary in the New York Times, but I would suggest combing the Internet to read his words for yourself. Even though he was...

All The News That’s Fit To Stint

All The News That’s Fit To Stint

Update: Denied bail.  Contents of the bond proffer, which describes the barbaric act these 4 creatures committed in detail.  Media coverage of the prolonged anti-white brutalization of a mentally challenged boy has been despicable.
