‘El Chapo’ Captured..Again

‘El Chapo’ Captured..Again

We’ll see how long this particular detainment lasts. InSight Crime has an interesting exploration of the politics behind any possible extradition to the United States. Another piece worth reading-published several years before El Chapo’s last escape from captivity-describes the twins who betrayed their former boss, as well as the disturbing relationship they had with...

The Great Escape: Part II

The Great Escape: Part II

If any evidence were needed that corruption and statecraft are inseparable, then the saga of Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman would prove sufficient. While the wily Casanova merely escaped the Leads beneath the  Doge’s palace in Venice a single time, El Chapo has managed to spring himself from two maximum security federal prisons. This, in...

The Daily Rattle, 11/3/14 (Election Eve Edition)

With Election Day imminent, it’s only appropriate that this edition of the Daily Rattle begins with a few news items dealing with important votes taking place throughout the country.

The Daily Rattle: Children’s Crusade Edition

The mendacity of our current administration is at times stunning, even for those of us who should by now have become inured to the lies regurgitated by the Obama administration and its factotums for the better part of two terms. The disavowals by La Raza graduate Cecilia Munoz and village idiot Joe Biden notwithstanding,...

La Bestia

La Bestia

One of the overlooked aspects of this country’s problem dealing with illegal aliens is the subset of this population which comes from Central America, often at great risk to life and limb. The treacherous route these migrants take  north relies upon a network of freight trains known as La Bestia, (The Beast), or El...

May 5th (Saluting An American Pioneer)

President Obama has spent the past week trolling for votes among undocumented Democrats, purportedly as a way of strengthening historic ties between the United States and its neighbor to the south, which-as we’ve pointed out in the past-have always been a little tetchy. While the irony of issuing paeans to Mexico as a patriotic, John...

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 appeal...
