Electing A New People

Electing A New People

I took the image you see above in my old stomping grounds of Bay Ridge, which has earned the moniker Beirut in recent years, for obvious reasons. Aside from the Alpine Theater-which was in danger of being added to the adjacent mosque at one point-and Galaxy Comics, you would be hard-pressed to find a...

Sudden Jihadi Syndrome Strikes again

Sudden Jihadi Syndrome Strikes again

Update: Stop carping about your subjugation, you nasty Islamophobe!  This time in France, a nation where 200 people have been murdered-some after undergoing indescribable torture-and over 800 people maimed in the past year alone. Just as previous generations pondered important questions, e.g. is it live, or is it Memorex? So too we have to...

Rattle On (A Momentous Anniversary)

Rattle On (A Momentous Anniversary)

You are reading the 1,500th (extended) post to American Rattlesnake, a project which began in the febrile imagination of my friend and colleague, Michel Evanchik. If you had told me in 2010 that over half a decade later this website would exist, let alone be flourishing, I would have scoffed. Those of you who...

From The Head Down

From The Head Down

As if we needed a reminder that the Augean Stables of our federal government need to be cleansed from top to bottom, this week brought news of an FBI agent encouraging a would-be Muslim assassin in the days leading up to the jihadist assault on Garland, Texas.

Leading From Behind

I have some thoughts on the Republican ticket, one of them slightly unconventional, but will save them for another day. It’s worthwhile spending a post on what’s occurring in the UK, which has important implications for the West going forward. Peter Hitchens sums up the surreal political dynamics at work within post-Brexit Great Britain....

Hillary’s Folly

Hillary’s Folly

The Benghazi Report has finally been published, you can read it in its entirety here, which means we’ve been treated to some predictable political reactions, including this illuminating headline from the New York Times. Leaving aside the predictable spin from Hillary boosters in the fourth estate, one of my main problems with the national debate...

Bloody Borders

Although there have been numerous global jihadist assaults since my last post-including an unsuccessful attack carried out by a Somali Muslim immigrant in a Texas town forced to accept the resettlement of refugees and the beheading of a Canadian hostage taken by Abu Sayyaf-it’s worth reflecting upon the atrocity which took place at the Pulse...

Another Day, Another Jihad

Another Day, Another Jihad

The Orlando Massacre

The Orlando Massacre

Update: The State Department has no records of a meeting with the father of the shahid.  The killer’s slightly less insane father visited Congress and the State Department. So perhaps they are assimilating after all.  A horror for one woman, via text.  Despite her SIOA Facebook page being restored, Pamela Geller has been banned from...

Terror and Liberalism (Judge Mukasey Speaks)

Terror and Liberalism (Judge Mukasey Speaks)

  Most of you familiar with the work of Michael Mukasey probably remember him as the federal judge who granted Jose Padilla, an Al Qaeda agent designated an enemy combatant by the Bush administration, access to counsel during his detention in a U.S. military brig. Others might recall his refusal to declare waterboarding synonymous...
