Two Americans (The Case Against Joe Arpaio)

Two Americans (The Case Against Joe Arpaio)

With the United States Senate rushing headlong into its rendezvous with destiny, i.e. deconstructing what remains of this nation’s anemic and beleaguered economy, and the U.S. House following suit, it  seems appropriate to examine cui bono from these developments. Obviously not American citizens, beyond Facebook billionaire Mark Zuckerberg and the politicians who’ll be handsomely...

North Carolina and the Nation

North Carolina and the Nation

Over the past two years Americans have seen the issue of illegal immigration take center stage after being relegated to the periphery of national political debate for so many years.

Obama vs. the United States

Obama vs. the United States

The actual name of the case, of course, is Arizona vs. the United States, which-as Jan Brewer points out in her wonderful book, Scorpions for Breakfast-is an inherent contradiction. The United States overwhelmingly supports the state of Arizona, and endorses the landmark immigration enforcement law that this administration is trying to suppress. Even so,...

SB 1070 On Trial

On a day when one of the nation’s most prolific lens tics decided to propose a law as preposterous as his political career, there was a Senate hearing ostensibly designed to explore the constitutional implications of SB 1070. In reality, it was a transparent attempt by Democrats to influence the Supreme Court, as the...

The Daily Rattle (2011 New Year’s Edition)

The Daily Rattle (2011 New Year’s Edition)

Our last Rattle of 2011 runs the gamut, all the way from an immigration enforcement success in Pennsylvania to a disappointing judicial setback in South Carolina. However, we begin the final roundup of the year with a must-read essay in The American Conservative by W. James Antle III. It looks at the immigration scorecard...
