Right of the Soil

Right of the Soil

One of the defining features of our society is its strange approach to citizenship. We live in the only major Western nation which operates under a policy of unrestricted jus soli, which means that individuals seeking to acquire American citizenship for their children need only birth them on United States soil in order to...

Straight Talk (Bloggingheads Tackles Immigration)

Straight Talk (Bloggingheads Tackles Immigration)

The facile nature of the immigration debate within this country can be infuriating to those of us who’ve invested time and effort into gaining a fuller understanding of this complex, interconnected series of issues. It often seems like we’ve living in the dystopian future outlined in the Neil Postman classic, Amusing Ourselves to Death. A world where...

Desert Visions (Update on Dicks Peak Fire)

Desert Visions (Update on Dicks Peak Fire)

The chaotic, lawless status quo maintained on our southern border is one of our least-reported domestic catastrophes. This isn’t surprising when you consider the fact that our news media view themselves primarily as a platform for immigrants, illegal aliens and their benefactors more than objective outlets designed to convey pertinent information to the broader...

The Pope vs. The United States

The Pope vs. The United States

  Update: C’mon, guys! You know that walls don’t work. Pope Francis, as you may have heard, visited the drug and violence-plagued city of Juarez yesterday. A place where hundreds of  women have fallen prey to the sadistic whims of Mexican drug cartels-often with the complicity of corrupt public institutions.  Leaving aside the loathsome...

‘El Chapo’ Captured..Again

‘El Chapo’ Captured..Again

Another piece worth reading-published several years before El Chapo’s last escape from captivity-describes the twins who betrayed their former boss, as well as the disturbing relationship they had with...

Over The Top

Over The Top

While Europe deals with the consequences of a Middle Eastern invasion brought on by the terrible decisions of its ostensible leaders, the United States continues to see an influx of illegal immigrants from Central America. Despite the Obama administration’s assertions that the flow of unaccompanied minors has abated, OTMs continue to pore across the...

The Coverup Continues (Fast and Furious)

The Coverup Continues (Fast and Furious)

For those who believed the departure of Eric Holder from the national spotlight would be put an end to troublesome questions about Fast and Furious-and the obstruction of justice and abuse of power its failure unleashed-I have some bad news for you. The trial of several members of a Mexican rip crew for the...

Beside The Point

Beside The Point

In light of this week’s made-for-reality-TV contretemps involving professional conflict junkie Jorge Ramos and presidential candidate Donald Trump, we should all look a bit more closely at Mexico’s favorite bilingual propagandist. To that end, I’m providing a link to an illuminating dissection of Ramos and his worldview from the inestimable Steve Sailer. His observations and analysis...

The Nature Of Citizenship

The Nature Of Citizenship

  One of the most remarkable aspects of the current presidential campaign is its unprecedented focus upon some of the more egregiously stupid and deleterious aspects of this country’s immigration policy. In addition to the lethal consequences of municipal sanctuary laws, there is the question of jus soli, colloquially known as birthright citizenship, which...
