Part II: Albion Under Siege (SION Conference)

The global jihad against speech-aided and abetted by our enemedia-was the primary subject of discussion at the SION conference this past Tuesday, and the panels assembled represented the full spectrum of thought and action that is being suppressed as a result of the collaboration between government officials-both elected and unelected-intent on “managing” our ever-diminishing pool of  liberty, the custodians...

Narco Nation (Rattlesnake Reads)

Last night I had the pleasure of attending the latest installment in the Half King’s weekly reading series.

L’affaire Strauss-Khan

There are a number of lessons to be gleaned from the rapidly imploding criminal case against the former head of the International Monetary Fund, Dominique Strauss-Kahn.
