Libertad (Two Stories Of Hope And Achievement)

The day after Christmas-Boxing Day, for those of you in the Commonwealth of Nations-seems like an appropriate time for two inspiring stories which exemplify what this country stands for. Namely, freedom and the opportunity to pursue your dreams, both for yourself and your loved ones. Yasiel Puig, the superstar outfielder currently playing for the...

Socialismo Es Muerte

The President’s abrupt announcement of an imminent détente with the tropical gulag run by the Castro Bros. has sent reporters and pundits scurrying to analyze the broader political implications of this seeming diplomatic breakthrough.

The Coming Wave

Not content with simply accepting the invasion of the United States as a fait accompli, the Obama administration is now actively seeking to facilitate the erasure of American sovereignty.

The Marxists of May

The Marxists of May

  Update: The Silent Majority No More has some great coverage of the May Day absurdity, which I urge you all to check out for yourselves! One of the perennial problems faced by the left is the inclination to either devolve into myopic, sectarian bands, or to remain so diffuse and broad in its...

Feet In Two Worlds

Feet In Two Worlds

One of the themes we’ve emphasized on American Rattlesnake this year is the damage inflicted upon American society by ill-conceived policies of refugee resettlement carried out by the federal government. Unlike past generations of refugees who came here from nations behind the Iron Curtain, Cuba, or other Communist states, the ones transplanted to the...

Palestinian By Proxy

Palestinian By Proxy

One image taken from the pro-Hamas rally held by Al-Awda NY, among other anti-Israel organizations, in Times Square this weekend. I wish I could say that it was anomalous in some way, but the inexorable truth is that the physically and intellectually etiolated creature you see above was probably as representative of the spirit...
