The New Normal

The New Normal

For those of you under the misimpression that this weekend’s thwarted terror attack in France is an anomaly, Breitbart London has some sobering news. In a single 18 month span, over 230 people were murdered in jihadist attacks upon that country. And while most of us are aware of the horrors perpetrated in the Bataclan and the offices of Charlie Hebdo, few recall the many acts of terrorism which were prevented by well-trained security forces.

Perhaps, like Londoners, residents of cities like Toulouse, Marseilles, and Paris will just have to adapt to the new normal…if you can call it that.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day

March 17, 2017

It turns out that many Irish-Americans follow the career path of their forefathers. For a great novel about Irish-American women, and their relationship to both the City and its exceptional fire department, I would suggest picking up a copy of my cousin Kathleen’s Ashes of Fiery Weather. To our readers, I’d just like to wish you a happy St. Patrick’s Day, even if you’re only Irish until midnight.

Constitutional Crisis

March 16, 2017

 

President Trump’s revised executive order has been halted, once again, by a federal judiciary which doesn’t seem to understand-or to care much about-the Constitution or its prescribed role within it. You can read Josh Blackman’s instal-analysis, which hits most of the key points.

As Mark Krikorian points out, regardless of the inherent merits of the Trump policy, the decisions rubbishing it pose a unique threat to Constitutional government as we know it. Something that the late Antonin Scalia warned about repeatedly. Not surprisingly, the state which is responsible for this latest extra-constitutional ruling has accepted less than 10 refugees for resettlement in FY 2015, none of whom hail from the Middle East.

This would be amusing if the consequences weren’t so stark.

The Spirit Of America

Update: Photos of events held throughout the country. 

Tomorrow will see rallies held across the nation expressing support for President Trump and his platform. Presumably, there will also be counter-protests, although hopefully this time the participants will be able to restrain their penchant for savagery, destruction of private property, and unrestrained violence against those peaceably assembling.

Stand For Truth (Basta Fidel)

Stand For Truth (Basta Fidel)

 

Despite the encomia heaped upon the late Fidel Castro over the past few days, from both tyrannical regimes and morally inverted Western leaders, the man who turned Cuba into a tropical gulag had no redeeming features. He ruined his nation, turning a once a thriving-if troubled-island into a testament to the failure of socialism and hellishness of totalitarian rule. Read More »

Speaking Truth To Power

Speaking Truth To Power

To the surprise of no one, the reporters, editors and publishers whose revolting fealty to Hillary Clinton, exposed in excruciating detail through Wikileaks, resulted in an historic loss for the Democratic Party have learned nothing from Tuesday’s Trumpslide. Instead of reflecting upon how media institutions rigging the primary process against Bernie Sanders, then conducting an embarrassing, 9 month-long editorial jihad against Donald Trump, might have led voters to reject the chosen one, they have spent the past 2 days regurgitating stories about fake SJW-created hate crimes.

One of my favorite spectator sports is live debating. Although not all debates are as riveting as the Nick Gillespie-Walter Block confrontation which occurred last night, this election cycle has taught us all the entertainment value of a good one. Read More »
