Democratic Governor Stands Against Campus Free Speech, Vetoes Key Legislation

In yet another example of Democrats’ troubling views toward free speech, the governor of a traditionally red state killed a Republican-sponsored bill designed to deal with First Amendment violations on college campuses by anti-Trump protesters. Amazingly, the Democratic Governor of Louisiana, John Bell Edwards, vetoed the bill protecting free speech on campuses because he said it was not needed. Edwards wrote that the bill was an “unnecessary and overly burdensome to our colleges and universities as the freedoms this bill attempts to protect are already well-established by the bedrock principles declared in the First Amendment to the United States Constitution.”… Keep Reading

Amash Backs House Resolution Affirming NATO Article 5

Although much of the attention regarding Rep. Justin Amash’s recent votes has been directed at his opposition to Kate’s Law and defunding sanctuary cities, on Wednesday, the Congressman voted in favor of resolution H. Res 397, “Solemnly reaffirming the commitment of the United States to the North Atlantic Treaty Organizations principle of collective defense as enumerated in Article 5 of the North Atlantic Treaty”. The resolution ultimately passed 423-4, with the support of all Democrats present, and all but four conservative Republicans – libertarian Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY), the Freedom Caucus’ Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ) and two paleoconservatives, Rep. Walter… Keep Reading

Pres. Trump: North Korea “Has No Respect For Human Life”

President Trump and South Korean Leader Moon Jae-in spoke to the press this morning about their plans to combat the North Korean regime. This meeting comes shortly after the untimely death of Otto Warmbier, who was held as a North Korean prisoner for the past year. He was returned to the United States in a coma, and doctors indicated that he was in a “state of unresponsive wakefulness.” He died June 19 at the age of 20. In his speech this morning, Trump asserted that “patience is over” because North Korea “has no respect for human life” which has been “proven… Keep Reading

Rand Paul (R-KY) on how to proceed with Obamacare, should the Better Care Reconciliation Act (BCRA) fail to pass the United States Senate.  The President stated that if Senate Republicans are “unable to pass [the BCRA]”, they should “immediately repeal and replace at a later date.” Keep Reading

Rep. Justin Amash Feels The Heat For Opposing Border Security Measures

Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) has once again separated himself from the pack, but not in such a good way this time. He is catching a great deal of flak on the state and national level for voting against immigration measures promoted by President Trump. Amash was the only Republican ‘no’ vote against Kate’s Law, and one of the few Republican ‘no’ votes against the No Sanctuary for Criminals Act. Kate’s Law would bolster penalties for undocumented immigrants convicted of crimes who were deported from the United States and then re-entered the country illegally. The No Sanctuary for Criminals Act would… Keep Reading

“Re-Imagined Masculinity” Is Always Doomed To Fail

A common trope one hears in the midst of the “official” discussions on masculinity (ie: stuff that you’d never find within a mile radius of a website such as this one) is the idea that “toxic masculinity” can be solved by “reimagining masculinity.” To elaborate, this is the idea that the traditional “social construct” of masculinity is harmful to all: it forces men to live up to a thuggish, belligerent, stressful ideal of masculinity that deprives them of worthwhile emotional connections, it hurts women because this “false” ideal of masculinity is the wellspring of cat-calling, the pay-gap, and of course… Keep Reading

Neil Gorsuch Is a Giant For The Conservative Cause

Mark Joseph Stern is coming apart at the seams and he wants you to imitate his thumb-sucking fetal posture. In his article, Neil Gorsuch is everything liberals feared—and more, Stern recites a litany of Justice Gorsuch’s most heinous transgressions. He’s supposedly “pro-gun, pro–travel ban, anti-gay, anti–church/state separation. He is certainly more conservative than Justice Samuel Alito and possibly to the right of Justice Clarence Thomas.” Stern saves the best/worst for last when he says Gorsuch “will likely serve on the court for at least three more decades.” There’s a lot there for the Left to fear and for the Right… Keep Reading

Representatives from the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and the Justice Department urged the passage of two immigration bills scheduled to get voted on this week during Wednesday’s White House briefing.

The two bills—Kate’s Law and The No Sanctuary for Criminals Act—will be voted on by Congress later in the week. Both bills represent steps by the Trump administration and their allies to crackdown on illegal immigration. Keep Reading

Anti-Trump Leftists More Big Brother Than Trump

Back in January, a two-word phrase uttered by Trump advisor Kellyanne Conway gave George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four its biggest sales boost in years. In response to White House secretary Sean Spicer’s assertion that, contrary to the mainstream media’s head-count, citizens who attended the Trump swearing-in represented the “largest audience” ever to appear at an inauguration, Conway defended his claim, stating that he was merely giving out “alternative facts.” For many on the anti-Trump left, this phrase was evidence that Big Brother had arrived in the White House, and, perhaps to understand the nature of the “beast” in the oval office, (one… Keep Reading

Feminists Triggered Hard After President Trump Pays Innocent Compliment To Female Reporter

President Donald Trump cannot catch a break from his critics. This time, he is in hot water for simply being a gentleman. Because Trump paid an innocent compliment to a female reporter, feminists want him to pay mightily for, in their minds, enabling the patriarchy. “We have all of this beautiful Irish press, where are you from?” President Trump asked a reporter while on a call with Ireland’s new head of state, Leo Varadkar.

The Racist History Of Minimum Wage Laws

In 1966, Milton Friedman wrote an op-ed for Newsweek entitled “Minimum Wage Rates.” In it, he argued “that the minimum-wage law is the most anti-Negro law on our statute books.” He was, of course, referring to the then-present era, after the far more explicitly racist laws from the eras of slavery and segregation had already been removed. Friedman’s observation about the racist effects of minimum wage laws can be traced back to the nineteenth century, and they continue to have a disproportionately deleterious effect on African-Americans into the present day. The earliest of such laws were regulations passed in regards… Keep Reading

Claudius was an outsider who was brought into power by the Roman Praetorian Guard who wanted to see political change from the corrupt Augustinian lineage.
