Conservatives Under Siege – Transgendered Bathrooms And The Brilliance Of The Left’s Decoy Strategy

This article is the first in a three-part series titled “Conservatives Under Siege”. Subscribe to Liberty Conservatives Magazine or follow Joel on Facebook or Twitter to be notified of subsequent articles. From the explosion of outrage and hyperbole that violated my social media newsfeeds in the last two days, I gather that gender-confused individuals are now trying to use bathrooms to which they are not assigned. That’s unfortunate. I expect it to complicate some social norms, and potentially produce awkward situations.  It may even force some businesses or public buildings to go back to the barbaric unisex individual bathrooms still used by most small businesses nationwide. Worse yet, government may declare public restrooms to be unisex and government workers and public schoolers will be forced to join the approximately 90% of the world that doesn’t give a crap where you, you know, give a crap. Fond as I am of our distinguished American bathroom system, I also realize that the extent of this controversy is still…bathrooms. As conservative blogger Matt Walsh… Keep Reading

The Secret 28 Pages: A “Preliminary Police Report” Detailing Saudi Involvement In 9/11

As political pressure continues to mount, the Obama administration has signaled its intent to release at least parts of the still classified 28 pages of the 9/11 report that many believe will show Saudi Arabian involvement in the terrorist attacks on 9/11. In an appearance on 60 Minutes, former Senator Bob Graham (D-Florida) and chair of the Congressional committee that released the report, told host Steve Kroft the 28 pages show Saudi Arabia was “substantially” involved in the attacks on 9/11. When asked by Kroft if the support came from the Saudi government, wealthy citizens or charities, Graham replied, “all of the above.” “I think it is implausible to believe that 19 people, most of whom didn’t speak English, most of whom had never been in the United States before, many of whom didn’t have a high school education, could’ve carried out such a complicated task without some support from within the United States,” Graham continued. Porter Goss, a co-chair of the Congressional inquiry along with Senator Graham who later became… Keep Reading

Cruz-Kasich Pact And The Race Ahead

Late Sunday evening, April 24, after the Fox News Presidential Town Hall in Philadelphia, both the campaigns of Sen. Ted Cruz (TX) and Gov. John Kasich (OH) put out similarly crafted joint statements on the future of their campaigns in the upcoming primaries. Common in both of these statements was a willingness to unite the #NeverTrump vote in Indiana around Cruz. Indiana is believed to be a crucial state to keep Trump from acquiring 1237 delegates before the Republican National Convention in mid-July. In return, Cruz campaign has agreed to cease from campaigning in New Mexico and Oregon for Kasich to compete for delegates in those proportional contests. However, serious doubts remain as to what extent this pact will have an effect on the current race. On one hand, it could help put Cruz over the top in Indiana, where he’s currently trailing by around 6% in the RealClearPolitics average, but it could also feed right into the narrative that the Trump campaign is pushing: that the system is rigged… Keep Reading

Tim Donnelly, Patriot, Not a Politician Running For Congress In California

April 23rd at Riley’s Farm, at a fundraiser billed “A Night with the Stars”,  8th California congressional candidate Tim Donnelly had endorsements from such notables as Comedian Rob Schneider,  “Dallas” Actress Morgan Brittney,  “Politichicks” Ann-Marie Morell and Michelle Malkin.   At the dinner several firearms were raffled off and Mr. Donnelly mixed with the ethnically diverse crowd who embrace his conservative ideals in what is the 87th most conservative district in the country. One such person was Anthony Harris who commented on why he supports Donnelly against the establishment. “I’ve been supporting Tim Donnelly since he ran for governor.  Unfortunately he didn’t win that race.  That race was an absolute travesty as Donnelly was ahead in the polls but at the last minute the likes of Romney and Jeb Bush and congressman Darell Issa, so called “Republicans”, decided to run a very nasty smear campaign by promoting a “more electable”(liberal) Neal Kashkari. “The reason why I support Tim Donnelly is because he is a great conservative.  He supports our second… Keep Reading

Bad News For Social Democrats – Koch Brothers Don’t Control The Republican Party

Charles Koch and his brother do not control the Republican party, but the social democrats who despise them might begin wishing they did. During a recent interview with Jonathan Karl of ABC news, Charles Koch sat down to discuss his frustration with the election, declaring that he believes the system is rigged, but definitely not by him. Estimating that in a 5 trillion-dollar economy, the corporate tax code alone is costing Americans $1.5 trillion, he vehemently opposes laws that support corporatism. “A great majority [of the benefits] are going to the wealthy,” Koch said, echoing the statement made by the interviewer. “The poor aren’t paying the taxes, so it benefits the wealthy. I think the whole tax code needs to be thrown out and all these exemptions need to be eliminated and everyone needs to be taxed on the same basis,” he said. How does Charles Koch’s position on eliminating corporate welfare fit their narrative? It doesn’t. Nonetheless, it has done little to minimize the fact that some high-profile celebrities continue scapegoating the Kochs,… Keep Reading

Wake Up, Rand Paul Fans: Ted Cruz Is Your Only Hope

The results are in – Ted Cruz is now the only remaining candidate in the 2016 Republican primary poised to stop Donald Trump from nabbing the GOP nomination. I cannot say I am as thrilled by this news as the diehard Cruz fans must be (as I do not count myself among their ranks for reasons I will explain later), but I still find solace in the thought that Trump still has a worthy usurper – and he isn’t half bad. Now that seem like light praise, but I am a believer in incremental change being a serious part of the liberty lover’s platform. And for reasons I’ve already written about elsewhere and won’t bore you with today, I frankly find the alternative, purist view one of naiveté and grossly vacuous entitlement. Nobody belonging to any ideology will ever be 100% successful and completely receive everything he or she wants at the drop of a hat. And in a political environment as clearly volatile as this, the good guys… Keep Reading
