Silvio Canto, Jr. Sunday, March 26, 2017 6:05 PM "Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free." - President Ronald Reagan

You may recall the story of Joanne Chesimard. A radical and violent leftist, She was convicted in the 1970s of killing a New Jersey state trooper and then escaped to Cuba. Joanne then became Assata Shakur and was granted political asylum in Cuba. More than that, she became the darling of the revolution or the black woman who represented everything racist and evil about the US. It was pathetic. We are happy to see that Governor Christie wants to bring her to justice, as we read a couple of days ago: In 2015, when then-President Barack Obama reopened relations between the United States and Cuba, there was hope that[...]
... because reading his book is torture.For reasons to be explained in a future blog post, I'm wading through the sludge that is Saul Alinsky's Rules for Radicals. It's horrible. In fact, it's recursively horrible or maybe mutli-dimensionally horrible or perhaps it's over-horribled as it's crammed with examples of every kind of horribility that a book might ever have.It also reveals why Obama was such an obnoxious and tedious bore. The book is all about community organizing and after you've sampled what bits you can stand, you see a class of people who are at once pompous, hyper-intellectual, unreflective, ignorant, incompetent and completely useless.First, there's the prose. Alinsky writes like Hitler. He makes broad,[...]

Dear Friends: It is my pleasure to be a guest on Silvio Canto's wonderful Blogtalkradio.com program, Canto Talk, this Valentine's Day. I will be joined by military history expert Barry Jacobsen to review romance-based myths. So, Click HERE on Tuesday, Feb. 14th at 11 am Pacific Time/ 1 pm Central/ 2 pm Eastern or after for the archived show.Barry will start the program by reviewing some traditional myths surrounding romance. Then, we will review how they have evolved to take darker characters and transform them into romantic heroes, in a trend I will call twilighting.For example, the vampire began its history in literature as a character more suited for Halloween than Valentine's Day.But, in the new Millennium, vampires have[...]
Democratic Senator Jeanne Shaheen (D-N.H.) today stepped alarmingly into the ether when she characterized alleged Russian interference in the November election as an act of war.Ok, let me stipulate for the court that I am against the Russians or any other foreign entity messing with our election process. But foreign governments have been doing that sort of thing since Persian gold Darics ended up in the pockets of Athenian politicians to oppose Philip of Macedon (and likely long, long before that). We certainly have gone to great lengths in the past to interfere in other nation's internal affairs, including killing their candidates and sometimes leaders (just ask Diem of S. Vietnam or Allende in Chile; or more recently Obama[...]
SEPARATION, NOT SECESSION: GREATER FEDERALISM AND LESS FEDERAL GOVERNMENT IS THE ANSWER TO OUR DIFFERENCES AS A PEOPLE With Trump's election leaving unhappy Californians as nervous as a Christian Scientist with appendicitis (if you don't get that joke, you don't understand the oxymoron that is Christian Science), some here in the Golden State are calling for secession. That is, for California to leave our Union and go its own liberal way. Trump is't their kind of President, and his vision of America not one they want to stick around for. Legally speaking, I think the issue of states[...]
The violence and rioting at Berkeley are intended to be a win-win for the left. I don't think that the timing is coincidental to Trump's inauguration. Trump has been wrong-footing the left and "flooding the zone" by moving to keep campaign promises with record speed. The left has been exhausted trying to maintain their outrage. Enter Milo. The location and the advance notice gave the leftist globalist scum time to plan their rioting for maximum effect. It allows them to seize the initiative from Trump and make headlines about Nazis and white supremacists, as to build sympathy to their cause. Right on cue, CNN tweeted this: This looks is a win-win for the[...]
B-Daddy 1/12/2017 5:52:57 PM The impending move of the Chargers to Los Angeles has left with me with a so what feeling. I lost emotional connection with them a few years back. I had no intention of supporting another hold-up of the city finances. The only silver lining is that maybe we will have incentive to figure out how to make stadiums profitable without football teams. If that problem could be solved, we could build stadiums and not get soaked on the deal. So long. And good luck playing second fiddle to the Rams in LA.
A Kinder and Nicer NFL?Are any of you buying the new crisis management public relations campaign by the NFL, Together We Make Football? The NFL has been pushing commercials that make them look like AT&T or Hallmark. Problem is, I dont think many are falling for the new kinder and gentler NFL. The whole reason they have to clean up their act is that there have been so many bad actors in NFL with behavior stretching from bad to criminal that they had no choice but to look like they cared. And rather than really take a look at the behavior and get rid of bad players, they have them do the classic mea culpa like Ray Rice after he beat his fiance unconscious, they go away for a little while either by due process or the NFL[...]
Doo Doo Econ Tuesday, January 19, 2016 6:08 PM Doo Doo Economics are the policies of overspending, printing money, neglecting the key economics issues, bad science and promoting entitlement programs which all add up to higher taxes during a recession and economic unsustainablility.
Once again Americans are facing questions about the definition of a Natural Born Citizen (NBC).This is the simple and indisputable definition: Two citizens who have a child, naturally create a new citizen. This is a Natural Born Citizen.There is absolutely no expert either legal or historical who will argue to the contrary. They may argue to include additional citizens, but this is the core of the definition.Two people who have a child in a location, have a citizen who is native to that land. This is a Native Born Citizen. Thus, terms like "Native American" which imply a location and not an allegiance to a country.A person can be both Natural Born and Native Born, or in the United States we also have Naturalized[...]
Do you remember the headlines when Obama apparently declared America a Muslim country on French television? Taken from an Islamic perspective this statement is dangerous. It sounds as if the President of the United States sees America is a Muslim nation. When you consider translations, this may presented to the masses as exactly that, American President Hussein (an exclusively Islamic name) Obama declares America to be Islamic. Thus America would be "al-Islam", or territory which may never be ceded to non-Muslims.Semantics, right? Over-reaction, right?Except, this is a long standing meme from not only the President, but also his staffers. [...]
Dean 11/11/2015 9:22:09 AM Over the weekend, Salon writer, DAVID MASCIOTRA, caused quite a dust-up on social media with his own salute to the troops ahead of Veterans Day . Here is the headline, followed by the sub-headline and then followed by the first paragraph of the piece:You dont protect my freedom: Our childish insistence on calling soldiers heroes deadens real democracyIt's been 70 years since we fought a war about freedom. Forced troop worship and compulsory patriotism must endPut a man in uniform, preferably a white man, give him a gun, and Americans will worship him. It is a particularly childish trait, of a childlike culture, that insists on anointing all active military members and police officers as heroes.If you desire, you can read it[...]
Theres no denying that over the last few decades most all on-field rules changes made by the NFL have been exercises in increasing offense and scoring. This has created an arms race in a sense where the pendulum swings back and forth between the NFL offenses and NFL defenses whereby the offenses get aided by rules changes and the defenses counter with a combination of innovative schemes and superior athletes. To wit, for years, its been conventional wisdom that the best athletes in the world were in the NBA. Now days, we would add NFL defensive backs and possibly outside linebackers/rush ends into that mix (you dont think dudes like Richard Sherman, Darrelle Revis and J.J. Watt can ball a little?).But[...]
PHOENIX In a similar way that former Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick was the face of dogfighting as much as he was known for being a special athlete when owner Jeffrey Lurie gave his approval to sign him eight years ago, Oklahoma Sooners ...
Before Tebow, the medias favorite quarterback to cover was Michael Vick. The dude was the biggest story in sports after he was arrested and spent 18 months in prison for his role in an illegal dog fighting ring. Vick would not only be a media ...
