The Treason Lobby’s Bag Man

The Treason Lobby’s Bag Man

As  a Facebook friend remarked when posting a link to this story, “what morons are running this godforsaken idiot party?” Good question, my friend. The answer, apparently, is liberal open borders, multimillionaire  Sheldon Adelson. Leaving aside the dubious provenance of Mr. Adelson’s wealth,  you have to wonder why Republican presidential aspirants would be so...

Coulter vs. Kaus at CPAC

Coulter vs. Kaus at CPAC

It turns out that the Coulter-Kaus debate was broadcast on one of  C-SPAN’s many outlets yesterday, despite the unofficial CPAC ban on discussion of the most important domestic political issue. You can watch the full debate here. In addition to covering the political costs of amnesty and the legally and constitutionally dubious nature of...

The Daily Rattle-June 28, 2013 (Amnesty Roundup)

The Daily Rattle-June 28, 2013 (Amnesty Roundup)

-As we predicted, the Senate passed the Gang of Eight amnesty yesterday, setting the stage for the final battle in the House of Representatives, which is ostensibly controlled by Republicans.

Achieving Liberty

Achieving Liberty

One of the great things about Libertyfest-regardless of its faults-is that it brings together people who are willing to disagree with each other over substantive issues of political philosophy. It’s not a stage-managed affair crafted by its participants with the intent of obscuring differences and evading questions such as whence do rights derive, and how...

Rewriting History

Rewriting History

With a little under a month remaining until Election Day, the Obama campaign has transitioned into full-blown hispandering mode. This week’s symbolically potent, yet empty, exercise in  gestural politics entailed President Obama designating the home of former California labor leader Cesar Chavez a national monument. The ostensible purpose of this decision is to rally support...

Speaking Frankly

Speaking Frankly

The withdrawal of Rick Santorum from the battle for the GOP nomination brings with it new speculation over the path ahead for conservatives. Santorum’s exit from the Republican presidential sweepstakes dashes the hopes some may have harbored of casting their ballots for a Gingrich-Santorum ticket this November. On the other hand,  Congressman Ron Paul’s supporters have...

Identity Politics (Part II)

Identity Politics (Part II)

One of the more obnoxious political phenomena this election cycle is the continued fixation of the media upon placing voters into specific taxonomic, ethnic boxes. Despite all evidence to the contrary, the press corps insist upon classifying all potential voters who hail from Spanish-speaking countries into the same amorphous, unitary bloc, regardless of the...

Blowout

Rick Santorum wins everything, including the Missouri primary and both the Colorado and Minnesota caucuses, in a landslide. Almost all the results are in, and the former U.S. Senator from Pennsylvania has emerged victorious over his three Republican rivals. Might it have something to do with his robustly anti-illegal alien platform, as well as...

The Endorsement Primary

The Endorsement Primary

The potential upside and possible drawbacks of a Rick Santorum nomination-even as that scenario recedes further into the distance-have been explored on this website several times since the beginning of what already seems like an interminable primary season. Formerly thought of as a politician with a relatively weak record on immigration issues-who previously supported both bracero...

New York ICE

My good friend Joanna Marzullo, president of New Yorkers for Immigration Control and Enforcement, has alerted me to some recent changes on her organization’s official website. NY ICE was extremely active in 2011, especially in the New York/Tri-State Area, and has continued to serve as an outspoken opponent of illegal immigration in a city where...
