Political Posturing

Political Posturing

On the heels of the Rockville rape, which prompted local Democrats to propose a bill that would make their city a sanctuary city, Virginians are dealing with the brutal murder of a teenager at the hands of 3 criminal aliens. Governor McAuliffe has claimed he wants those who commit serious criminal offenses to be deported, although...

Personal and Public Ethics

Personal and Public Ethics

The resignation of John Kitzhaber should come as no surprise to those of us who’ve been monitoring the career of both he and his inamorata, whose recent past includes the disclosure of immigration fraud. A revelation that dovetailed perfectly with this particular couple’s militant open borders activism, including an ACLU-endorsed campaign to invest illegal...

Status Quo Ante

The race between a former immigration lawyer and House Gang of Eight member and the Cantor clone has concluded. As everyone anticipated, Kevin McCarthy was chosen as the next Republican House Majority Leader. The stupidity of this selection is obvious, but that has never stopped the GOP in the past. As for who will be...

The People Have Spoken

The People Have Spoken

Update: Roy Beck’s statement regarding the results in Virginia’s 7th Congressional District is now available online.  The only question that remains is whether the heretofore tone deaf GOP leadership in the House of Representatives is listening. We, like many patriotic Americans of every partisan affiliation, are celebrating the defeat of soon to be ex-Majority...

We Deserve Better (Usher Eric Cantor Into Retirement)

You’ll be doing the American public a huge favor. You can do so through this aptly-named organization, or donate directly to Mr. Cantor’s current primary opponent, Dave Brat. Mickey Kaus has already chipped in, in case you were wondering where discerning, patriotic political analysts/commentators were placing their bets. The sooner we trim the Republican ranks...

Stop The Boehner-Cantor-Obama Amnesty

Stop The Boehner-Cantor-Obama Amnesty

This past week’s immigration theater confirm what we have been saying for years. Namely, that the House GOP leadership can’t be trusted to protect the interests of the American public, especially when they conflict with its corporate benefactors. Even as Boehner’s attack dogs from silicon valley are unleashed against his own members who dare to...

Setting The Record Straight

Setting The Record Straight

The actual deportation numbers for this administration are, as anyone who has been paying attention to this issue in even the most cursory manner, appalling. Federale has an incisive post exploring just one of many grossly misleading media puff pieces extolling the benefits of President Obama’s latest unconstitutional administrative amnesty, which I recommend reading....

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...

Hiring Our Heroes

Hiring Our Heroes

One of the unfortunate realities for veterans reentering the civilian workforce in this sluggish economy is the inability to find work that’s commensurate with their level of education and training. Or, in fact, any work at all. The unemployment rate for those who’ve served in combat and returned home is twelve percent according to...

The Daily Rattle for February

The Daily Rattle for February

Today’s Daily Rattle cuts a wide swath across the political landscape, including stories about the ongoing carnage of the Mexican war against the narco cartels, some high profile endorsements of Mitt Romney by immigration enforcement advocates, and a potential reentry into the political realm by our good friend Russell Pearce. But first, we examine...
