    The Wisdom of Old Rabinovich

    Indiana's shameful surrender to the Gay Mafia, Big Business, the Left, and the Commentariat on the Religious Freedom Restoration Act came as no surprise. Indeed, Pat Buchanan's most recent column on the whole sorry debacle contains words that must be memorized by every traditionalist.

    The bestselling Fifty Shades trilogy by E.L. James (pen name of British authoress Erika Mitchell), which includes the books Fifty Shades of Grey, Fifty Shades Shades Darker, and Fifty Shades Free became the latest fad in the shabby genre of lowbrow female fiction.

    Netanyahu and "European" Antisemitism

    The most recent Muslim terrorist outrage took place in Copenhagen this time. Omar Abdel Hamid El-Hussein shot up first, a free speech meeting, killing a Danish documentary filmmaker, and moved on to shoot up a synagogue where a bat mitzvah celebration was held, killing a volunteer guard from the local Jewish community before being dispatched by Danish cops.

    What MLK Day Says About Today's America

    Dealing With the Devil

    Ralph Sarchie exudes an aura of intense strength when he walks into a room. A fit, middle-aged man with heavily tattooed arms (pictures of his daughters and tough cop tattoos, like one that reads New York Untouchables) and a buzz cut, who speaks with a Queens accent straight out of Martin Scorcese’s Goodfellas, Sarchie has a rare and perilous profession.

    Witnessing Anarcho-Tyranny

    Nowhere is anarcho-tyranny more evident than in this country's criminal courts. A few weeks ago, I was asked to do the arraignment of an older Central European immigrant. His crime? Burning wood in a metal barrel in his own backyard.
