Executive Overreach (Intelligence Squared Debate)

Executive Overreach (Intelligence Squared Debate)

The threat of an imperial presidency constantly looms within the American psyche, especially now that the ability of the federal government to intrude into our personal lives appears to be unlimited. However, this administration’s exploitation of its explicit powers-and arrogation of powers it was never granted under our Constitutional framework-is unprecedented in the context of...

Con Law 101

Con Law 101

Yet another example of Barack Obama’s unwillingness to acknowledge the separation of powers, or abide by any constraints upon his presidential authority. In this case, it’s an extension of the patently unconstitutional administrative amnesty which began over two years ago. Mark Krikorian has the details of the President’s latest evasion of the law.  Who...

Crime & Incompetence

Crime & Incompetence

Some readers might remember Marinka Peschmann, an investigative journalist and writer whose work we’ve cited in past discussions of the Obama administration’s unconstitutional administrative amnesty. Although far from her sole focus, she has done some phenomenal work regarding the subject of immigration, particularly the criminal malfeasance and bureaucratic dysfunction that has eroded the core...

Two Americans (The Case Against Joe Arpaio)

Two Americans (The Case Against Joe Arpaio)

With the United States Senate rushing headlong into its rendezvous with destiny, i.e. deconstructing what remains of this nation’s anemic and beleaguered economy, and the U.S. House following suit, it  seems appropriate to examine cui bono from these developments. Obviously not American citizens, beyond Facebook billionaire Mark Zuckerberg and the politicians who’ll be handsomely...

Dishonoring The Office

It’s remarkable to think that the person who ordered his subordinates to stop enforcing the law remains in charge of ICE, but when Eric Holder is still in charge of the Justice Department, I suppose we shouldn’t be surprised. Kudos to Senator Sessions for keeping sight of his duty, even as his colleagues plot new...

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...

Mixed Bag

Mixed Bag

This past weekend saw a flurry of action in California, as Governor Jerry Brown took action on a raft of legislation that passed his desk after the end of the current legislative session, signing a bill that would effectively give driver’s licenses to those illegal aliens amnestied by the Obama administration while vetoing one which would...

Democracy’s Future

Democracy’s Future

The precedent established by the Islamist-led prayer-not for the United States, of course-endorsed by the DNC continued on the second night of the Democratic National Convention. The celebration of a post-American nation included a brief, yet vitally important, speech by an illegal alien who served as a stand-in for the millions of “undocumented students”...

Swimming Upstream

Swimming Upstream

That, of course, is Roy Beck, the founder and executive director of Numbers USA, which-as I’m sure my readers are well aware-is the single most effective grassroots organization lobbying on Capitol Hill for immigration enforcement. I had the pleasure of listening to a fascinating address he delivered at the Penn Club in Manhattan last...

The November Crime Blotter

Today we’re introducing a new feature on American Rattlesnake: the Crime Blotter. It’s where we’ll catalogue the litany of crimes committed by illegal aliens whom the federal government, in its infinite wisdom, has decided not to deport. If you have any news about absconders who’ve subsequently committed crimes, feel free to send your tips at...
