Thank Congressman King for standing up to President Obama

Just got an e-mail from the president of NY ICE reminding me of Peter King’s strongly worded statement about President Obama’s pathetic El Paso speech in favor of amnesty. She suggested writing an e-mail commending him for his continued stand against this betrayal of the American people.

Requiem for a City

    A big tip of the figurative hat to our good friend Kathy Shaidle, owner of the refreshingly subversive Canadian blog Five Feet of Fury, for that link. I don’t think any hour-long speech on the virtues of an open border can withstand that three minute excoriation of the double standards employed in...

When Less Is More (Intelligence Squared Debate)

When Less Is More (Intelligence Squared Debate)

This past tuesday I had the distinct pleasure of attending an Intelligence Squared debate whose subject is one that this website has addressed repeatedly in the past, although admittedly, not as often as I would have liked. The drive to thwart repeated amnesty proposals introduced throughout this past year has not given us the opportunity...

D-Day. May Day Photos and Coverage: Part I

D-Day. May Day Photos and Coverage: Part I

My apologies for beginning this entry with such a startlingly vulgar image, but I thought it appropriate to visually demonstrate the level of debate I encountered from open borders anarchists during the May Day rally held at Foley Square. These two characters-who obviously eschew fasting as a form of political protest-are from the very...
