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...

Provoking Putin

The conviction of and two year prison sentence leveled against anti-clerical, anti-authoritarian riot grrl punk-rock band Pussy Riot should not have come as a surprise to those who have been following the periodic show trials initiated by the Putin regime in order to quell swelling domestic discontent and internal protests. In spite of the inevitability...

Philadelphia Phreedom (Part II)

Philadelphia Phreedom (Part II)

That is a photograph of the very demonstrative State Senator Mike Doherty, whose address to the Paul faithful was interrupted by the man everyone had come to Philadelphia to see, accompanied-as always-by his charming wife, Carol. Senator Doherty was the penultimate speaker in a stable of high profile Paul supporters who took the stage across...

We Are Breitbart

We Are Breitbart

Thanks, Karol! Monday night I had the honor of attending a tribute to the late Andrew Breitbart held in Hell’s Kitchen. I’m not sure what I was expecting from the evening, but what happened is something that can’t quite be put into words, although I’ll try my best. Over the course of three hours,...

Hating on the Kochs

Hating on the Kochs

Update: Our good friend Pamela Hall has more photo and video coverage of the event on her fantastic website, The Silent Majority No More. I highly recommend checking it out for yourself. The police presence at the anti-voter verification rally that took place in Manhattan this weekend was pretty substantial, although it still wasn’t...

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 Real Lesson of Thanksgiving

The Real Lesson of Thanksgiving

As we gather together with loved ones-or not so loved ones-to give thanks, or express regret, perhaps it’s a good time to put things into perspective. A few days ago an acquaintance posted a cartoon to Facebook often used to lampoon those of us who are not open borders fetishists by predisposition. I’m referring, of course,...
