A New Beginning

The fact that Samuel Rodriguez is delivering the invocation is probably not a good sign for immigration patriots, but we shall see. Hopefully, the Trump Era will be a welcome departure from the open borders chaos we’ve had to endure under his predecessor in the Oval Office. Only time will tell.

The Daily Rattle (Pre-Inaugural Edition)

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...

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...

The Daily Rattle (Presidential Edition)

A couple of news items before tonight’s VP debate: -The Department of Homeland Security has scotched an investigation into the Clinton family’s bagman, Governor Terry McAuliffe, as well as Hillary’s younger brother, ex repo man/current parasite Tony Rodham. Both men were involved in a scheme to fast-track visa applications under the E-5 investor visa...

King of The Hill

King of The Hill

Yesterday’s press conference was remarkable for a number of reasons, not least because it revealed the naked contempt this nation’s media has for the men and women who’ve served in the Armed Forces. A sneering condescension that they can’t mask, even as they bang the drums for more interventions in the quagmire of the...

The World According To Hillary

The World According To Hillary

One of the more fascinating aspects of California’s transformation into the politically uniform, post-caucasian, multicultural utopia so many open borders Democrats-and their unwitting Republican allies-have worked so hard to achieve is the response of the ruling class. Most impartial observers might ask whether the hundreds of billions of dollars in unfunded liabilities and public...

2 Crimes

2 Crimes

Update: Suspect taken into custody. In Switzerland, however, the suspect has died of his wounds.  So far Swiss authorities have not come to the conclusion that the stabbing spree/arson attack on train passengers was linked to terrorism. Then again, we should recall that German and Scandinavian law enforcement have engaged in a systemic coverup...

Rattle On (A Momentous Anniversary)

Rattle On (A Momentous Anniversary)

You are reading the 1,500th (extended) post to American Rattlesnake, a project which began in the febrile imagination of my friend and colleague, Michel Evanchik. If you had told me in 2010 that over half a decade later this website would exist, let alone be flourishing, I would have scoffed. Those of you who...

Parade Of Horribles

Parade Of Horribles

Even as events conspire to make hash of the narrative contrived by Hillary Clinton and the national media, i.e. Vladimir Putin’s exposure of the awfulness of the Democratic Party is the true threat to American democracy, the politically correct variety show in Philadelphia proceeds apace. Before tonight is over you will have endured the...

Snap Judgment: Trump-Pence

Snap Judgment: Trump-Pence

Some initial thoughts: -Without being able to peer into the mind of Donald Trump, it’s hard to discern what prompted him to pick Governor Pence. If we take his words at face value, party unity was one of the primary motivating factors. That undoubtedly played a role, although I doubt it will sway Republicans...
