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...

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...

Squelching Speech

Squelching Speech

Update: More details on Oleg’s political detention, courtesy of CounterJihad.  Despite the hope that President-elect Trump would usher in a new era of political toleration-after 1st Amendment critic Hillary Clinton’s historic loss-the fact remains that our institutions of higher learning are controlled by people who value dogma over truth. The latest illustration of this...

Speaking Truth To Power

Speaking Truth To Power

To the surprise of no one, the reporters, editors and publishers whose revolting fealty to Hillary Clinton, exposed in excruciating detail through Wikileaks, resulted in an historic loss for the Democratic Party have learned nothing from Tuesday’s Trumpslide. Instead of reflecting upon how media institutions rigging the primary process against Bernie Sanders, then conducting an...

Daily Rattle: NYC Edition

Daily Rattle: NYC Edition

Taking a break from the towering inferno that is our presidential election, it’s worth noting some disturbing, yet sadly predictable, developments in our own backyard. The ad you see above is now plastered over subway cars taken by straphangers traveling to and from their jobs, which they have obtained legally in most cases. Even...

Round 2: Thoughts On Last Night’s Debate

  Update: David Goldman adds his 2 cents.  A few observations about last night’s presidential debate, which you can view in its entirety here, as well as the post-debate spin which followed. As I pointed out in an essay published earlier this year-before we knew who the parties would nominate-the defining characteristic of Hillary...

The Free Thought Project

  Today sees an extremely important referendum take place in Hungary, one of several nations in the Central European bloc committed to maintaining its traditional European character. Earlier this year, Brenda Walker wrote a fantastic summary of what’s at stake in this vote, including in her piece a transcript of the speech Prime Minister...

Parting Thoughts On The First Debate

Parting Thoughts On The First Debate

Just to give you a rough summary of what I thought of the first debate, here are a few rather lengthy observations: Donald Trump dominated the first 20 minutes to half hour of the encounter. Focusing primarily upon trade, the one public policy he’s immersed himself in-and has a mastery of-played to his strong...

The Great Debate

The Great Debate

Update: Brilliant pre-debate analysis by James Taranto.  Josh Marshall makes a salient point, re: Trump’s greatest handicap entering tonight’s debate. Personally, I tend to agree with Derb. Most voters will overlook an ignorance of policy details-see Aleppogate-if they have confidence in a candidate’s leadership abilities. That said, Trump does have to exhibit some minimal...

Taste The Rainbow

Taste The Rainbow

Although overshadowed by your regularly scheduled terror attacks, as well as pre-debate effluvia, the media’s attempt to turn Donald Trump Jr.’s recent tweet into a cause célèbre for smug leftists is worth examining in detail.  While some right wing pundits pointed out the similarity between his Skittles metaphor and a feminist-inspired meme involving a different chewy...
