Radio Derb Is On The Air

Listen to the latest podcast from our dear friend John Derbyshire, who tackles everything from the ongoing fusillade by Hamas and its jihadist allies in the Gaza Strip to the continuing miasma of multiculturalism afflicting the United States-including the children’s crusade from Central America. Here’s the link!

Hold The Line

Contrary to the popular misconception advanced by the open borders lobby, stringent immigration enforcement, when it actually takes place, serves as an effective deterrent to the influx of illegal aliens to this country, among others. They respond to incentives and disincentives, just like other human beings, and the idea that the behavior of illegals...

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...

Independence Day 2013

Independence Day 2013

Today marks the 257th anniversary of the day when the Declaration of Independence was finalized and officially published.

One of the chief distinctions between the anti-Israel rally and the slightly smaller, yet equally exuberant, pro-Israel counter-demonstration held in Times Square this weekend was the sentiments expressed by the participants. While the former vocalized their antipathy towards Israel and the United States and demanded ordinary Israelis be punished-through measures such as the BDS...

Palestinian By Proxy

Palestinian By Proxy

One image taken from the pro-Hamas rally held by Al-Awda NY, among other anti-Israel organizations, in Times Square this weekend. I wish I could say that it was anomalous in some way, but the inexorable truth is that the physically and intellectually etiolated creature you see above was probably as representative of the spirit...

The Paradox of the PMOI

The Paradox of the PMOI

One simple word which encapsulates the sum of the aspirations harbored by Iranians throughout the world, both those in exile and those living, and suffering, in the land of their birth. It was one of the demands invoked repeatedly throughout the pro-democracy demonstrations which took place last week at Dag Hammarskjold Plaza. These protests were held against...

Revolution/Evolution (Free Speech At The UN)

Revolution/Evolution (Free Speech At The UN)

Most New Yorkers-especially natives-are inured to the daily spectacle which makes their city something of a super-sized freak show. However, most of the time that sideshow is of the sort one normally expects to see in Coney Island, i.e. entertaining enough as a diversionary pursuit, but not so garish or mind-altering as to force...
