Independence Day

July 3, 2015

What better way to celebrate the birth of our nation than to listen to this country’s de facto national anthem up until the adoption of the Star-Spangled Banner in 1931? A composition put together, appropriately enough, by an American modernist described by the great Gustav Mahler as a musical revolutionary. Hopefully, all of our readers will enjoy this holiday and take time to reflect upon the sacrifices made by our forefathers in order to secure liberty for future generations of Americans.

The End Of An Era

July 1, 2015

 

 Last month saw the passing of one of the lions of California politics. An overused cliche, in this case it’s completely appropriate. Senator Richard Mountjoy represented a set of values that have gradually but inexorably been erased from that state’s political landscape. The man behind Proposition 187, the Save our State initiative, he fought tirelessly for the security and welfare of American citizens, as well as a competitive, two party state-something that has receded into distant memory. The current governor is the antithesis of the late senator, and has ushered in a series of laws that undo whatever remaining restraints exist upon unfettered illegal immigration into the state of California. The sad truth is that the legacy of Dick Mountjoy will not have the physical imprint left by that of his opponents. People who have deliberately dismantled a once great state in order to cement their hold on power. 

It’s shameful, but a fact of life nonetheless. Rest in Peace, Mr. Mountjoy.

Islam’s Day Of Rage

June 27, 2015
Islam’s Day Of Rage

It seems like the world’s most peaceful religion just can’t keep itself out of the headlines these days. On the heels of repeated attempts to assassinate artists and writers, the foot soldiers of Allah meticulously murdered over 60 infidels yesterday in a spate of terror that stretched from Kuwait to France. Although the attack outside of Lyon resulted in the fewest casualties, it’s probably the most relevant to the American public. The massacre on the Tunisian beach is in keeping with pan-Islamic terrorist networks policy of attacking economic interests-particularly those which rely upon Western tourism-in order to undermine local governments, while the explosion at a Shiite mosque in Kuwait is drearily predictable.

There Will Be Blood

Like any petty tyrant worth his salt, John Boehner bides his time before exacting retribution upon those brave enough to stand up to his misrule. After ushering Obamatrade through the House of Representatives, the current Speaker has decided to punish conservatives who defied his authority. Are you beginning to notice a pattern?

Don’t say you weren’t warned.

Shining A Light

Even as Islamic tyrants and terrorists and their progressive enablers attempt to suppress free, honest speech throughout the Western world, there are those intrepid souls who continually defy authority in order to spread a message of truth. Read More »

South of the Border

To the surprise of very few, the Associated Press reports that over an 8 month period Mexico deported more Central Americans than the United States. Take particular note of this passage:

 In most cases, Mexico holds migrants only long enough to verify their nationalities, and quickly bundles them aboard buses to take them back to their home countries.”

That is not the case in the United States, where most who claim “credible fear” can remain pending an asylum court case, as long as the Border Patrol can’t prove the person has a criminal record. Read More »

Stand With Pam (And Against Totalitarianism)

Stand With Pam (And Against Totalitarianism)

One of the tools the global jihad attempts to use against the West is the imposition of economic and fiscal costs-to the point of bankruptcy-upon its targets. Al Qaeda and the Islamic State, as well as their affiliates throughout the world, have made it clear that they seek to not only impose psychological terror but financial privation upon their intended victims. For those who want to get an idea of just how costly it is to protect yourself and your family from the rampaging armies of Allah, I suggest reading Joseph Anton, the beautiful memoir written by Salman Rushdie which explores the years he was forced to live in hiding for unknowingly offending the tender sensibilities of the Caliphate.

One of the more gratifying experiences I’ve had over the past year has been witnessing the support you’ve shown for Seavey and Perry on Culture. Although this podcasting experiment has ended, it left me with a deep appreciation for the world of film and film criticism and awareness of how much some of you love movies. That’s why today I’m devoting some time today to fellow cineaste Matt Pritchard, who’s in the process of crowd-funding a micro-budget horror/psychological thriller called Dearly Departed.

Political Theater (Call Your RINOS!)

The battle over Loretta Lynch’s nomination escalated this past week, as the clown car of racial profiteers arrived to contribute their thoughts on Republican opposition to President Obama’s would-be consigliere. It remains to be seen how much mileage Sharpton & Co. will be able to generate out of her delayed confirmation, as even milquetoast cretins like Rich Lowry have recognized the absurdity of confirming someone who has pledged not to abide by the Constitution as the chief law enforcement officer of the nation.

Walk Out Of Darkness

Walk Out Of Darkness

I don’t often use this space for personal appeals, but feel compelled to do so today. In addition to losing my uncle, John Marmo, earlier this year to suicide, my best friend, Fiona Fort, took her life after struggling with the chronic pain of depression for most of her adult life. Even if you are fortunate enough to have never grieved the loss of a loved one to this disease-or to know someone suffering from suicidal ideation-I urge those of you who can to contribute to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention’s Denver Metro Walk Out of the Darkness Community Walk.

You can read my friend Ann’s story and donate to her cause here.  Read More »
