A Gruesome Crime

A Gruesome Crime

Many of you will remember this site’s description of El Narco, a wonderfully illuminating and disturbing look into the world of the transnational cartels which have embedded themselves within Mexican society written by British investigative journalist Ioan Grillo. Mr. Grillo has just published an insightful op-ed, in the New York Times that explores the grisly discovery of a fresh batch of corpses on the outskirts of the city of Iguala, which lies just a little over sixty miles away from the capital of Guerrero State in southwestern Mexico.

Texas Insider: Lamar Smith Discusses Fast and Furious, Amnesty, and Obamacare

October 10, 2014

 

A great interview of someone charged with oversight of Barack Obama’s increasingly lawless presidency. Unfortunately, as the latest decision regarding Eric Holder and the Justice Department’s response to Fast and Furious makes clear, even as the White House’s defiance of the law grows, the options we have for holding it accountable are not optimal. While the President has conceded that his decision to delay expanding upon his unconstitutional administrative amnesty is merely a political expedient intended to help Democrats salvage the upcoming congressional elections, Chairman Smith’s pairing of this outrageous plan against the continuing conflict Syria is an interesting juxtaposition. 

I suggest you listen to this illuminating interview in full to get an idea of what Obama & Co. have planned for us in the upcoming months. 

 

Radio Derb: Ebola and Ezekiel

Radio Derb: Ebola and Ezekiel

The past few weeks have been filled with news of dramatic happenings throughout the globe, not the least of which is the rapidly metastasizing ebola epidemic. In order to put things into proper perspective, it’s always useful to have an intelligent, rational guide who’s not captive to multiculturalist dogma and elitist groupthink. Thankfully, the latest edition of Radio Derb has just arrived! 

From the latest political turmoil engulfing Hong Kong-including the Chinese Communist Party’s ham-fisted attempts to crush the Occupy Central democracy movement-to the dubious hiring practices of this city’s Marxist mayor, John Derbyshire covers it all. Definitely worth checking out for those of you who have been enjoying a news sabbatical.

A Dose Of Humor

October 6, 2014

It’s good to know that there’s at least one voice who hasn’t been neutered by the politically correct, intellectually bankrupt, leftist groupthink that animates so much of public discourse these days, even if it is the puppet of an insouciant Yugoslavian Mountain Hound. As Triumph points out, the vast majority of faux Disney characters importuning passersby for handouts in Times Square are illegal aliens, the remainder being, most likely, convicted sex offenders. 

It will be intriguing to see how pols eager to shelter criminal aliens who reside in this city will reconcile their open borders fanaticism with their eagerness to please tourists-in Councilman King’s case, with a very likely unconstitutional bill inhibiting their activities. 

 

Fact Check (Fencing The Border)

Fact Check (Fencing The Border)

One of the most insipid weapons in the arsenal of stupidity which constitutes open borders dogmatism is the argument that building fences does not work as an impediment to illegal immigration. A popular bit of sophistry expertly lampooned by Adam Carolla in his hilarious first book, In Fifty Years We’ll All Be Chicks. Read More »

Patient Zero

Patient Zero

As Jessica Vaughan of the Center for Immigration Studies points out, there were many reasons why Thomas Eric Duncan should never have been allowed to enter the United States. It turns out that the simple, prophylactic measures which ensure the fiscal and cultural vibrancy of this country-or which used to do so, at any rate-also have immense public health benefits, e.g. preventing the diffusion of an incredibly fatal pandemic. The fact that lax customs and border procedures have endangered American citizens should come as no surprise to those of us who have been following the epidemiological nightmare which has emerged from this administration’s embrace of the thousands of unaccompanied minors streaming into our country from Central America, via Mexico.  Read More »

K Street’s Man On Capitol Hill

K Street’s Man On Capitol Hill

If there’s anything you can count on in Washington politics, it’s that Speaker John Boehner will put his foot into mouth, usually during or prior to a critically important election cycle. So it is with his recent comments regarding amnesty, which he pledged to enact at some point during the next session of Congress. A more diplomatic, or less stupid, man might try to down-play his support for a universally loathed policy right before conservative Republicans head to the polls, but not Mr. Boehner. I suppose the lure of yet more Zuckerberg cash is too tempting to restrain his idiotic outbursts, re: immigration, for more than a fortnight.  Read More »

Trek’s Trek (Honoring Brian Terry)

Trek’s Trek (Honoring Brian Terry)

 

Kudos to intrepid investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson for bringing attention to a noble cause. As most of you know, the investigation into the death of Agent Brian Terry at the hands of Mexican narco-insurgents has gone nowhere for nearly the past four years, in no small part due to the obstruction of this administration. Even so, the friends and family of Brian have never stopped speaking out on behalf of justice.

Team Emma (Join The Fight Against Childhood Cancer)

Unfortunately, there aren’t many people whose lives haven’t been touched by cancer in one form or another. One of the most heartbreaking forms, as well as one whose research is perhaps the most grossly underfunded, is pediatric cancer. That’s why the need to support those suffering from it is so urgently needed, as in the case of  a beautiful, strong, sweet little girl from Alabama named Emma Grace Mitchell. Read More »
