Among those attending the rally organized by the Texas Nationalist Movement were two women carrying a sign decorated with a red arm, reading “Remember Goliad and the 400 massacred Texans. I’d rather sever my right [...]
The Ecologist Party of Mexico’s recent mixture of political success and ethical failure can be instructive for Green Party activists here in the United States. [...]
Poe invoked the story of General Pershing’s authorization to invade Mexico as an example of what he thought would make sensible policy today. Representative Poe then described Mexico as an enemy of the sort the U.S. military confronted in World War II in the form of Nazi Germany. [...]
I was tickled when I visited YouTube this morning to see J. Clifford’s North American Union Superhighway video.
