All Politics Is Local (The Daily Rattle)

All Politics Is Local (The Daily Rattle)

-We begin today’s rattle with an interesting story about an Indian-or Muslim, depending upon PR needs of the open borders squad-athlete who was ushered into this country by our very own Senator Chuck Schumer. Unfortunately, this gifted sportsman is also a sex offender. Perhaps this isn’t quite as bad as having an alien interning...

Passing Through

Passing Through

As most of you probably know, a federal judge has blocked portions of President Trump’s executive order pertaining to refugees from 7 Muslim majority nations. Josh Blackman has published a good summary of what this injunction accomplishes, as well as a copy of the temporary restraining order itself. According to reports, it applies to a...

New Year, New Jihad

New Year, New Jihad

Update: Tommy Robinson right again, the perp arrived in Turkey via Syria.  ISIS claims responsibility.  Burying the dead.  Graphic photos of the Istanbul massacre.  A profile of the victims of jihad.  For good ongoing overage of this attack, follow Abdullah Bozkurt’s Twitter feed. One of the most exasperating parts of following news coverage of the latest...

Russian Ambassador Gunned Down

Russian Ambassador Gunned Down

Update: I’m not saying it’s an inside job, but… Erdogan reaches out.  The assassin was a member of the riot police, according to Turkey’s interior minister.  Syrian opposition celebrates the assassination.  The assailant-now deceased-appears to have been a Turkish policeman. Heckuva job, Erdogan!  Footage of what appears to be the assassination.  As if we...

The Great Debate

The Great Debate

Update: Brilliant pre-debate analysis by James Taranto.  Josh Marshall makes a salient point, re: Trump’s greatest handicap entering tonight’s debate. Personally, I tend to agree with Derb. Most voters will overlook an ignorance of policy details-see Aleppogate-if they have confidence in a candidate’s leadership abilities. That said, Trump does have to exhibit some minimal...

Taste The Rainbow

Taste The Rainbow

Although overshadowed by your regularly scheduled terror attacks, as well as pre-debate effluvia, the media’s attempt to turn Donald Trump Jr.’s recent tweet into a cause célèbre for smug leftists is worth examining in detail.  While some right wing pundits pointed out the similarity between his Skittles metaphor and a feminist-inspired meme involving a different chewy...

King of The Hill

King of The Hill

Yesterday’s press conference was remarkable for a number of reasons, not least because it revealed the naked contempt this nation’s media has for the men and women who’ve served in the Armed Forces. A sneering condescension that they can’t mask, even as they bang the drums for more interventions in the quagmire of the...

The Dr. Kevorkian Of Europe

The Dr. Kevorkian Of Europe

For those of you who needed confirmation that gleeful Nazi accomplice and evil billionaire George Soros is a real-life, Hungarian version of Emperor Palpatine, wait no more! According to a leaked memo from his Open Society Foundation, the man whose chief source of protein is human misery believes Europeans should accept the refugee crisis,...

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...

Election 2016: Fault Lines

Election 2016: Fault Lines

While I’ve had to delay this post for obvious reasons, here are some of my thoughts on Donald Trump’s national security speech delivered in New Hampshire this past week. Although I’ve criticized Donald Trump’s deficiencies, re: prepared speeches, in the past, even while acknowledging the rhetorical brilliance of his extemporaneous remarks and verbal ripostes, I don’t think...
