Iranian and Syrian Freedom

Iranian and Syrian Freedom

One of the fascinating aspects of living in this city is that, for good or ill, you’re exposed to a whole raft of ideologies and political philosophies of which, but for location, you might have remained blissfully ignorant in perpetuity. Granted, some of us choose to remain mired in a state of ignorance notwithstanding...

Rally for the Republic

Rally for the Republic

There is a great ideological divide within this country, even if the two major party candidates don’t accurately reflect it. That’s why I’m pleased to report that our good friend David Webb, in collaboration with some free market allies, has launched a rally intended to strike back at the smiley-faced socialism and denigration of...

Stand Up, Speak Out

I’ll delve more deeply into President Obama’s Unemployment For Americans Act in future updates, but today I’d like to highlight a speech made by the intrepid Michelle Malkin at this weekend’s Right Online conference. It’s particularly apt in light of the President’s continued policy of lashing out at dissenters-not a new phenomenon, unfortunately-such as...

The Esthetics of Occupy

The Esthetics of Occupy

The chalking you see above was one of the first signs I spotted of the organizing that was taking place inside of Bryant Park on May Day. Simplistic, but probably one of the more coherent artistic messages that I encountered as I traveled throughout lower and Midtown Manhattan on May 1st.

More May Day Coverage

  My apologies for not posting-as promised-the second part of my May Day photo-essay. There is some great coverage of May 1st by our friends at Vigilant Squirrel Brigade though, including footage of the attack upon NY ICE. You can find multiple videos of the confrontation-and what led up to it-on VSB’s Youtube channel. You can also...

Counterstrike

Counterstrike

That’s the word from organizers of the May Day general strike. No word yet on whether there will be any mass disavowal of loot, booze, or fun. In addition to the May 1st Coalition, whose somewhat muddled agenda includes a call for mass amnesty of  all illegal aliens-a policy suggestion that is akin to pushing...

Decision Points

Decision Points

Months of strenuous campaigning, millions of dollars in political advertising, and countless days of retail politicking will culminate in just a few hours, when a select few will decide who will be awarded the first presidential delegates of the 2012 Republican race for President of the United States. Although not always an accurate gauge...

Voting Rights and Wrongs

Voting Rights and Wrongs

“Martyrs” — That was one of the many signs on display during an NAACP and SEIU-sponsored rally that took place this weekend  in opposition to David and Charles Koch, CEO and Executive Vice-President, respectively, of Koch Industries and universal left wing hobgoblins. The ostensible reason for the demonstration was the brothers’ contributions to the American Legislative Exchange Council,...

Are We Targeting Islam?

Are We Targeting Islam?

Update: Welcome to readers from Creeping Sharia. Thanks, once again, to Pamela for the link! We always love getting readers from Atlas Shrugs. Earlier today I took it upon myself to journey to Foley Square in Manhattan, where an anti-NYPD, anti-intelligence agency gathering sponsored by CAIR, Al-Awda, and Desis Rising Up & Moving, among...

Occupy Wall Street (Part IV)

Occupy Wall Street (Part IV)

This will be my fourth photo essay documenting the encampment at Zuccotti Park. After embedding themselves within this section of lower Manhattan for well over a month, the protest movement known as Occupy Wall Street has developed into a small, albeit extremely controversial, community. While I was walking around the park I did notice...
