Republican Self-Immolation

For what it’s worth, I don’t think Marco Rubio has any ideological qualms about further enfeebling the Republican Party. In fact, some have suggested a change of enrollment and independent candidacy-like his old friend Charlie Crist-lie in his future. Even if he remains in the GOP, opposition to Rubio will maintain its intensity; the...

Fight Or Flight (The Stupid Party Bargains With Obama)

Fight Or Flight (The Stupid Party Bargains With Obama)

Last week’s election results undoubtedly left many readers deeply disappointed, if not disaffected, including those of you who couldn’t bring yourselves to cast your ballot for Mitt Romney for any number of well documented reasons. The prospect of a president unencumbered by electoral consequences, whose administration has already shown itself to be flagrantly indifferent...

Horatius at the Bridge (SION Conference: Part IV)

Horatius at the Bridge (SION Conference: Part IV)

The first gathering of the Stop Islamization of Nations Congress took place on the eleventh anniversary of the 9/11 attacks in the city-and nation-targeted by pan-Islamic jihadists on that clear September day. Considering the deeply-rooted religious and ideological convictions that were  to serve as the fulcrum of those massacres, it was only fitting that...

It Could Happen To You

  Or your son, daughter, brother, sister, cousin… It happens to thousands of Americans every year-Jamiel Shaw’s son simply being one of the most famous victims of a criminal alien crime wave that afflicts every state in the union.

May Day 2012 (Marxists, Communists, Librarians)

May Day 2012 (Marxists, Communists, Librarians)

One of the hallmarks of demonstrations organized by the left-as anyone who lives in this city can attest-is a consistently muddled message-or assemblage of messages-which often has little bearing on the theme ostensibly animating the protest movement in question. I’m not sure if the occupiers displaying the words of anti-USSR, Marxist Polish philosopher-turned anti-Marxist...

An Open Debate About Open Borders

An Open Debate About Open Borders

One of the most persistent divides between traditional conservatives and their libertarian/anarcho-capitalist counterparts involves a fundamental philosophical disagreement about immigration. While most conservatives view immigration primarily through the lens of preserving American culture by only accepting those immigrants who are assimilable and will tangibly benefit our society in the future, a view expressed repeatedly...

Occupy The Border

Occupy The Border

Update: Thank you 9/11 Families for a Secure America for highlighting this entry on your Facebook page. Peter Gadiel-who lost his son James in the September 11th massacre at the World Trade Center-serves as an inspiration to us all for continuing to hold politicians’ feet to the fire on border and national security issues....

Behold Our Future

Behold Our Future

One of the biggest challenges to the future of Europe is the continued balkanization occurring as a result of massive immigration from predominantly Arab and Islamic nations, coupled with the inability and/or unwillingness of host countries to assimilate these men and women to Western culture. Even though the systemic problems associated with this phenomenon are most often...

Policy Priorities

  I’ve been remiss in addressing this subject, but I think that the recent Supreme Court decision mandating the eventual release of thousands of prisoners currently incarcerated in California’s penal system is worth commenting upon for several reasons.

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...
