More was Lost at Mohács

A nation without borders is no longer a nation. Now the citizens of Europe must ask themselves if their continent, which has become a transit hub/social welfare agency for those fleeing the Islamic south, is still Europe in any meaningful sense of the word. Naturally, the cheerleaders for European self-immolation oppose any effort aimed at maintaining sovereignty. Read More »

The issue of valid identification, and the use of fraudulent or compromised documents to access the perquisites of American identity, is something that we’ve explored at length on this site in the past. One of the most prolific means illegal aliens and their families have of embedding themselves within American society is the Matricula Consular, a card issued liberally by the Mexican government to its nationals, ostensibly, living outside of Mexico.

Beside The Point

Beside The Point

In light of this week’s made-for-reality-TV contretemps involving professional conflict junkie Jorge Ramos and presidential candidate Donald Trump, we should all look a bit more closely at Mexico’s favorite bilingual propagandist. To that end, I’m providing a link to an illuminating dissection of Ramos and his worldview from the inestimable Steve Sailer. His observations and analysis remain as true today as a decade ago-when this essay was first published-because Ramos’ ideology has remained remarkably ossified in the interim. What’s good for Mexico and Mexican nationals is, by definition, good for the United States because this country is simply an extension of his homeland. Read More »

Stopping Terror In Its Tracks

As Oscar Brand pointed out to us many years ago-singing about another titanic global struggle against fascism-it never pays to underestimate the courage of American servicemen. The brave men of the U.S. Armed Forces came to the rescue once again this week-assisted by a brave American college student and plucky Brit-preventing a repeat of the type of jihadist massacre that has become a common occurrence in France.

The Nature Of Citizenship

 

One of the most remarkable aspects of the current presidential campaign is its unprecedented focus upon some of the more egregiously stupid and deleterious aspects of this country’s immigration policy. In addition to the lethal consequences of municipal sanctuary laws, there is the question of jus soli, colloquially known as birthright citizenship, which presumes that anyone born on American soil to any foreign national-save diplomats-is, de jure, an American citizen in perpetuity. The United States is one of the few countries on the planet, and the only major Western nation-with the exception of Canada-to follow this practice.  Read More »

Friends and Family (Lupus Meetup Tomorrow Night)

 

One of the unfortunate realities of clinical research is that much of it doesn’t bear fruit in the way its intended beneficiaries would like it to, i.e. resulting in cures for the diseases from which they suffer. It often leads researchers into blind alleys and cul-de-sacs rather than transformative medical breakthroughs. Even so, this experimentation is necessary, if only to learn from their past failures and mistaken assumptions-a process illuminated brilliantly in The Emperor of All Maladies, the first comprehensive biography of cancer-and ultimately discover successful treatments and therapies.

From our good friends at NY ICE:

The adversary will be demonstrating this Friday in favor of the implementation of the DACA and DAPA amnesties currently tied up in court. They will be demonstrating in front of a business owned by Robert Mercer, a man whom they mischaracterize as a proponent of false data about the negatives impact of these amnesties. His business is called Renaissance Technologies. Check out the details below the fold.  Read More »
