Independence Day

Independence Day

Today marks the 240th anniversary of the moment America officially cleaved itself from its colonial master, Great Britain. Although there are a number of ways to commemorate this occasion, I would suggest learning more about the events which led up to this momentous historical decision. To that end, you can peruse my recommended reading list...

Freedom? (The UK Witch Trials)

Freedom? (The UK Witch Trials)

A small victory for freedom of thought in a nation which has gradually descended into the muck of fascism, aided in no small part by the wholesale importation of Islamic radicals. Paul Weston, himself a victim of political persecution for expressing wrong think, explains why Tommy Robinson is the #1 target of the British...

Sons of Liberty (The Boston Tea Party Opera At Fringe)

You can find my entire review at Liberty Island as well.  I’m not what you would characterize as a typical fan of opera, be it  of the buffa or not-so buffa variety. In fact, when a close friend of mine-who also happens to be a classically trained pianist-asked me whether the opera I intended...

Kenya Endures

  It should come as no surprise to anyone paying attention that among the jihadists responsible for perpetrating this massacre, several hail from the community of Somali Muslim refugees resettled in the United States. A community whose troubles have been amply documented on this site, among others. Rather than belabor a point which we’ve...

Rivers of Blood

Once again, the words of Enoch Powell appear prescient, although perhaps in not quite the way the late British parliamentarian and classicist intended. In the same week that Swedes have been besieged by aggrieved jihadists imported by their own government, Londoners experienced yet another subsidiary benefit of multiculturalism. This time, in the form of...

A New Day in the UK

A New Day in the UK

Congratulations to UKIP and its visionary leadership, including leader Nigel Farage! Granted, it’s simply by-elections-the real test lies ahead-but anytime you can anger and frighten the multi-culti, metropolitan,middle class, left wing pricks at the Beeb and their Guardianista comrades to this extent, you know you’ve hit pay dirt. The debate over coercive multiculturalism and ahistoric, politically engineered mass...

“The Stranger” — A Poem By Rudyard Kipling

“The Stranger” — A Poem By Rudyard Kipling

The Stranger within my gate, He may be true or kind, But he does not talk my talk– I cannot feel his mind. I see the face and the eyes and the mouth, But not the soul behind. The men of my own stock, They may do ill or well, But they tell the...

The Wretched of the Earth

The Wretched of the Earth

One of the most trenchant social observers and luminous writers in the English language is Theodore Dalrymple, the nom de plume of British doctor and essayist Anthony Daniels. Formerly a prison physician and psychiatrist who spent his time diagnosing the symptoms of cultural decay, Dalrymple now devotes his career to addressing the diseases that gave...

History In Six Minutes

  One of the defining periods in this nation’s early history is the second decade of the 19th century. This era saw the demise of the Federalist Party, increased warfare between American settlers and Indian nations, and the seeds of this country’s hemispheric dominance which, by the turn of the century, would be total...

L’affaire Strauss-Khan

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. Beyond the usual, insincere breast-beating and lamentation over the media’s predictable rush to judgement, as well as questions of whether the traditional perp walk is a violation of...
