The Daily Rattle (Trump Edition)

According to a recently published study, over 27 billion dollars in federal grants and direct payments are awarded to sanctuary cities, although that figure probably doesn’t take into account the recent designations of the Borough of Prospect Park and Cincinnati as such. One need only recall the names of Adrienne Shelly, Jamiel Shaw Jr. and...

Separation Of Powers

  The big news to come out of the President’s first weeks in office is a federal judge enjoining his executive order blocking immigration from 7 nations of concern. The motion by the Trump administration for an emergency stay has been denied by the 9th Circuit, a decision which bodes ill for its ultimate fate,...

Loose Talk

Update: CIS has published a backgrounder on this agreement.  Whatever adjectives can be used to describe our new President, ‘diplomatic’ is not one which springs readily to mind. His phone conversation with Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull merely serves to reinforce a reputation for bluntness that was already solidified within the public imagination. In...

Passing Through

As most of you probably know, a federal judge has blocked portions of President Trump’s executive order pertaining to refugees from 7 Muslim majority nations. Josh Blackman has published a good summary of what this injunction accomplishes, as well as a copy of the temporary restraining order itself. According to reports, it applies to a...

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...

The Great Purge

The Great Purge

As we pointed out last year in our social media series, the neutralization of non-leftist perspectives by the gatekeepers of the world’s most popular websites is rapidly shrinking the sphere of acceptable public debate. While European countries-as well as Canada-are using the state itself to suppressing dissenting views, there is also parallel effort by...

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. From the politically correct know-nothingism of Shephard Smith, to the antiseptic-and confusing-reports from the Associated Press, to the anti-Trump non...

New Year, New Jihad

New Year, New Jihad

Update: Tommy Robinson right again, the perp arrived in Turkey via Syria.  ISIS claims responsibility.  Burying the dead.  Graphic photos of the Istanbul massacre.  A profile of the victims of jihad.  For good ongoing overage of this attack, follow Abdullah Bozkurt’s Twitter feed. One of the most exasperating parts of following news coverage of the latest...
