Tongue in Cheek

Tongue in Cheek

Kudos to Ann Coulter for demonstrating once again that the best weapon one can deploy against open borders fanatics is often humor.  Although cauterizing that priggish, Mexican pseudo-journalist is a small task for someone of her towering wit and intellect, it’s still entertaining to watch the whitest of white Hispanics unnerved by a public figure...

Armenian Golgotha

Armenian Golgotha

This year marks the centennial of the Turkish campaign to wipe out the Armenian people and depopulate the Ottoman Empire of its Christian subjects. Last month was the official commemoration of this holocaust, known as Armenian Genocide Memorial Day. Our good friends at the Silent Majority No More have provided us with an illuminating...

Live Coverage Of The Pakistani School Massacre

via The Guardian.  One teacher was allegedly immolated in front of his students. Sadly, this is not the largest loss of a life in a jihadist assault against schoolchildren. I can’t say that I disagree with those who feel Islamed out at the moment.

Jihad On The March

Jihad On The March

More details about the presumed identity of the suspect in yesterday’s shootings in Parliament Hill are slowly trickling in. Notwithstanding the absurdist headline, I would recommend reading national security reporter Colin Freeze’s account in The Globe and Mail. As The Daily Telegraph points out, the inspiration for the latest wave of jihadist attacks draws...

  A great interview of someone charged with oversight of Barack Obama’s increasingly lawless presidency. Unfortunately, as the latest decision regarding Eric Holder and the Justice Department’s response to Fast and Furious makes clear, even as the White House’s defiance of the law grows, the options we have for holding it accountable are not...

Hate Parade: Broadway, New York

Hate Parade: Broadway, New York

If you needed a reminder of why resettling scores of refugees from the Middle East in the United States is a monumentally bad idea, look no further than what  I would term, for lack of a better phrase, the Kill the Yahud rallies which have taken place throughout this country over the past month....

The Grand Cypher: Hip Hop, Iran, and Syria

The Grand Cypher: Hip Hop, Iran, and Syria

Last week I had the pleasure of witnessing a panel discussion at the Rush Arts Gallery moderated by Julie Ashcraft, who is currently curating an exhibition entitled The Grand Cypher: Hip Hop, Iran & Syria. You can see the multi-media exhibit through May 24th, but I decided to take in the works of art and...

Inside The Mind Of A “Mad Man”

Inside The Mind Of A “Mad Man”

Update: Here’s a link to a somewhat more concise review I did for Goodreads.  One of the most common critiques of contemporary American society, and Western culture more broadly, is its purported enthrallment to the opiate of celebrity. The notion that ordinary Americans are so dumbfounded by popular entertainment that they can’t understand linear,...

Drowned Hopes

Drowned Hopes

Yet another horrific shipwreck has occurred off the coast of the Mediterranean island of Lampedusa, which has become ground zero in the ongoing invasion of Europe by refugees from North Africa and the Middle East. You can view the harrowing rescue of some survivors here. The human tragedy-experienced both by the foreigners surging over the...
