Friends and Family (Lupus Meetup Tomorrow Night)

 

One of the unfortunate realities of clinical research is that much of it doesn’t bear fruit in the way its intended beneficiaries would like it to, i.e. resulting in cures for the diseases from which they suffer. It often leads researchers into blind alleys and cul-de-sacs rather than transformative medical breakthroughs. Even so, this experimentation is necessary, if only to learn from their past failures and mistaken assumptions-a process illuminated brilliantly in The Emperor of All Maladies, the first comprehensive biography of cancer-and ultimately discover successful treatments and therapies.

The Great Escape: Part II

The Great Escape: Part II

If any evidence were needed that corruption and statecraft are inseparable, then the saga of Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman would prove sufficient. While the wily Casanova merely escaped the Leads beneath the  Doge’s palace in Venice a single time, El Chapo has managed to spring himself from two maximum security federal prisons. This, in addition to evading the clutches of both Mexican authorities and the most powerful nation in the world for the better part of two decades. Read More »

Beyond Spin

On Tuesday, we posted a link to a CIS backgrounder by Dan Cadman which demonstrated the necessity of detention to any system of workable immigration enforcement. The brutal murder of Kathryn Steinle proves that our government’s embrace of illegal aliens-and stubborn refusal to pursue their deportation-has tragic consequences for innocent citizens living throughout this country.

Crime Prevention

July 7, 2015

In the wake of Kathryn Steinle’s horrific murder, it’s imperative that we continue to make the case for alien detention. She would still be alive today if the authorities in San Francisco had not been proscribed from detaining the criminal alien-with multiple felonious convictions-who would go on to take her life in such a brutal fashion. Thankfully, Dan Cadman has written a thoughtful backgrounder for the Center for Immigration Studies which explains in plain language why detention is necessary. Read More »

Stolen Lives

Stolen Lives

This past week brought news of yet another innocent American life taken at the hands of a criminal alien. In this case, one who had been deported on five separate occasions. The brutal murder of Kathryn Steinle can be laid directly at the feet of contemptible, hispandering politicians like Gavin Newsom, who have made San Francisco into a sanctuary for violent-in many cases, homicidal-offenders who surprisingly do not abide by this country’s immigration laws.

Independence Day

July 3, 2015

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. Read More »

Stand With Pam (And Against Totalitarianism)

One of the tools the global jihad attempts to use against the West is the imposition of economic and fiscal costs-to the point of bankruptcy-upon its targets. Al Qaeda and the Islamic State, as well as their affiliates throughout the world, have made it clear that they seek to not only impose psychological terror but financial privation upon their intended victims. For those who want to get an idea of just how costly it is to protect yourself and your family from the rampaging armies of Allah, I suggest reading Joseph Anton, the beautiful memoir written by Salman Rushdie which explores the years he was forced to live in hiding for unknowingly offending the tender sensibilities of the Caliphate.
