Independence Day

What better way to celebrate the birth of our nation than to listen to this country’s de facto national anthem up until the adoption of the Star-Spangled Banner in 1931? A composition put together, appropriately enough, by an American modernist described by the great Gustav Mahler as a musical revolutionary. Hopefully, all of our...

The End Of An Era

   Last month saw the passing of one of the lions of California politics. An overused cliche, in this case it’s completely appropriate. Senator Richard Mountjoy represented a set of values that have gradually but inexorably been erased from that state’s political landscape. The man behind Proposition 187, the Save our State initiative, he fought...

Islam’s Day Of Rage

Islam’s Day Of Rage

It seems like the world’s most peaceful religion just can’t keep itself out of the headlines these days. On the heels of repeated attempts to assassinate artists and writers, the foot soldiers of Allah meticulously murdered over 60 infidels yesterday in a spate of terror that stretched from Kuwait to France. Although the attack...

South of the Border

To the surprise of very few, the Associated Press reports that over an 8 month period Mexico deported more Central Americans than the United States. Take particular note of this passage:  In most cases, Mexico holds migrants only long enough to verify their nationalities, and quickly bundles them aboard buses to take them back to...

The Resurrection Of Zombie Trade

The Resurrection Of Zombie Trade

For the second time in as many weeks, the House of Representatives has approved fast-track trading authority for the President. Although, as we’ve pointed out repeatedly on this website, TPP has very little to do with actual free trade. The next step in this convoluted, jerry-rigged process involves getting the U.S. Senate to sign off...

Who’s Ready For Hypocrisy?

Who’s Ready For Hypocrisy?

  This is by far my favorite sign of the 2016 presidential race. It was held aloft by the intrepid truth-teller Gabriel Hernandez, who-along with our friends at NY ICE-crashed Hillary Clinton’s vacuous photo op at Roosevelt Island. Due to the draconian restrictions imposed by Madame Hillary’s security team, he wasn’t allowed to carry...

Capitol Hill Collusion

Capitol Hill Collusion

  Update: TPP is dead…for now. Roll Call 362.  Even as Republican leaders of the House of Representatives whip votes for President Obama, the fate of the Trans-Pacific Partnership remains in doubt. Assuming any Republican congressmen exist who actually value the opinions of their constituents, they’d be wise to read the coverage of Breitbart...

The Closing Of The American Mind

The Closing Of The American Mind

A big tip of the hat to James Fulford for bringing to my attention a Firing Line debate which shaped my opinions on this subject, the greatest domestic and foreign policy issue of our time, during my formative years. You can view the complete episode, divided into nine parts, on Ryan Kennedy’s Youtube channel. Proving...

The Mosque That Hate Built

The Mosque That Hate Built

This week’s thwarting of a plot to behead Pamela Geller by a jihadist cell in Massachusetts might have surprised those of you who aren’t familiar with the deep roots that Islamists have sunk into the Bay State. Even though the Boston Marathon bombing by the Tsarnaev brothers has shed some light on this disturbing phenomenon,...
