Inviting Terror

Inviting Terror

With the horrific ritual slaughter of yet another American journalist, it’s become clear that the Islamic State, after briefly pursuing the hearts and minds strategy, has reverted to form. Whether we call them ISIL, ISIS, Al Qaeda in Iraq, or the Combatant Vanguard, the essence of this group of sociopaths remains the same, i.e....

The Marxists of May

The Marxists of May

  Update: The Silent Majority No More has some great coverage of the May Day absurdity, which I urge you all to check out for yourselves! One of the perennial problems faced by the left is the inclination to either devolve into myopic, sectarian bands, or to remain so diffuse and broad in its...

Red Star Rising

Red Star Rising

To live in New York is to be surrounded by people suffering from various pathologies, many of whom you encounter on a daily basis if-like most of us-you use public transportation. Living here also means being surrounded by Marxists of varying hues, including Maoists, Trotskyites, and-as the photograph above illustrates, supporters of the Democratic...

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...

Reclaiming Liberty: SION Conference (Part I)

Note:  Video footage, including a rousing speech made by the legendary Pamela Geller, as well as a moving speech by 9/11 mother Nelly Braginskaya, at Atlas Shrugs. Also, additional photos and footage provided by the indefatigable photo-blogger Urban Infidel.  If  there was a single, overarching theme to the first Stop the Islamization of Nations Congress, it was just...

Rewarding Criminality

This is a fantastic interview of Congressman Steve King-conducted last month after the President’s unconstitutional administrative amnesty-which I urge you all to listen to. Rep. King is one of the few members of Congress willing to stand up to Barack Obama’s subversion of the legislative process. A dogged opponent of multiculturalism, King is exceptional...

The Rights of States

The Rights of States

It’s difficult to gauge the ultimate impact of this past week’s Supreme Court decision invalidating much of Arizona’s landmark immigration enforcement law, with the exception of Section 2(b), i.e. the clause empowering local police to ascertain someone’s immigration status if  ”reasonable suspicion” exists when he or she is detained.  Even this seeming bright spot...

A Nightmarish Dream

With the Obama administration’s unilateral decision to ratify what up to this point had merely been a de facto amnesty-literally interpreting catch and release-and the cravenly insipid Republican response to the President’s latest patently unconstitutional power grab, patriotic Americans wouldn’t be blamed for feeling powerless when it comes to protecting their country. Judicial intervention...

What Breitbart Left Behind

What Breitbart Left Behind

When Andrew Breitbart died unexpectedly at the beginning of this month he left a void, not only in the conservative movement but in our national political discourse, which is too often characterized by trite cliches and predigested sound bites. Breitbart not only challenged the assumptions of media talking heads, but often changed how mainstream...

The Fight For Equality

The Fight For Equality

Today marks the official commemoration of Martin Luther King’s birthday. Perhaps the most iconic figure in the modern Civil Rights movement, Martin Luther King Jr. was also a tireless champion of the fight to eliminate inequality in the United States.  So it’s only fitting that we stop for a moment to scrutinize one of the...
