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.

East is East (SION Conference Part III)

Flags of Freedom. So goes the poem by iconic English writer Rudyard Kipling, a man who brilliantly limned the boundaries-be they political, cultural, or mental-which separate the East from the West. However, one commonality that both share, unfortunately, is the proliferation of a muscular, revanchist Islam intent upon dominating, if not eliminating altogether, its...

Iranian Terror Plot

Iranian Terror Plot

I suppose I should have prefaced the title of this post with the qualifier “allegedly,” although for the sake of argument I’ll assume that the allegations contained in the Justice Department indictment are true.  There are a number of angles from which this story can be approached, and many of them have already been...
