Why We Fight

May 6, 2015

Last month the intrepid Pamela Geller spoke at my alma mater, delineating the reasons why our freedoms have become captive to an alien, totalitarian ideology-most recently manifested in the attempted jihadist massacre in Garland, Texas. Read More »

Nota Bene: Congratulations to Bosch Fawstin, who submitted the winning entry.  I think it personifies the spirit of defiance that characterizes those who stood with Geert Wilders in Texas yesterday in defense of freedom of thought and expression. You can view an enlarged version of the same drawing here. You can read the speech delivered by Wilders in its entirety here

I can’t say that I ever expected a close friend to be the target-one of many, as it appears-of an assassination plot. Then again, I never expected to live in a country that had porous borders, and which allowed scores of criminals and terrorists to traverse them at will AFTER losing nearly 3,000 of its citizens in an unprecedented terrorist assault. Thankfully, the only deaths to come about as a result of the latest expression of peace were those of the jihadists themselves. We can only hope that the courageous police officer injured in the line of duty will completely and fully recover from his wounds in the days ahead.  Read More »

All The News That’s Fit To Stint

You have to hand it to the morally obtuse, self-satisfied editors working at the Old Gray Lady. They may willfully distort the views and defame the character of people who hold perfectly reasonable positions on immigration policy, but at least they provide a forum for a brief rebuttal-at least, if you happen to be the chairman of an important subcommittee in the U.S. Senate.

Buying Your Way Into America

May 1, 2015

Followers of this website are well aware of the notorious immigrant investor (EB-5) program, which in practice is simply an elaborate mechanism for foreigners to bribe their way into legal status through this nation’s dysfunctional immigration bureaucracy. Read More »

May Day 2015
May Day is upon is, and that means the treason lobby is in full gear in anticipation of its annual parade through Union Square.

You will find details explaining how you can join her and her compatriots below.

Turning On The Spigot

April 26, 2015

In one remarkably concise exchange we arrive at a simple truth that has been obscured behind a veil of lies by the Obama White House and its enablers  in the fourth estate. Read More »

Breaking The Law

The Obama administration has spent the balance of its second term vivisecting what remains of the Constitution, which shouldn’t have come as much of a surprise to anyone who’s followed the President’s dismal view of our nation’s legal cornerstone. Read More »

Stand With Pam (And Against Totalitarianism)

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.

One of the more gratifying experiences I’ve had over the past year has been witnessing the support you’ve shown for Seavey and Perry on Culture. Although this podcasting experiment has ended, it left me with a deep appreciation for the world of film and film criticism and awareness of how much some of you love movies. That’s why today I’m devoting some time today to fellow cineaste Matt Pritchard, who’s in the process of crowd-funding a micro-budget horror/psychological thriller called Dearly Departed.

Political Theater (Call Your RINOS!)

Political Theater (Call Your RINOS!)

The battle over Loretta Lynch’s nomination escalated this past week, as the clown car of racial profiteers arrived to contribute their thoughts on Republican opposition to President Obama’s would-be consigliere. It remains to be seen how much mileage Sharpton & Co. will be able to generate out of her delayed confirmation, as even milquetoast cretins like Rich Lowry have recognized the absurdity of confirming someone who has pledged not to abide by the Constitution as the chief law enforcement officer of the nation.

Walk Out Of Darkness

Walk Out Of Darkness

I don’t often use this space for personal appeals, but feel compelled to do so today. In addition to losing my uncle, John Marmo, earlier this year to suicide, my best friend, Fiona Fort, took her life after struggling with the chronic pain of depression for most of her adult life. Even if you are fortunate enough to have never grieved the loss of a loved one to this disease-or to know someone suffering from suicidal ideation-I urge those of you who can to contribute to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention’s Denver Metro Walk Out of the Darkness Community Walk.

You can read my friend Ann’s story and donate to her cause here.  Read More »
