Bernie Sanders May Have Sold Out; But His Supporters Will Not

Bernie Sanders may be calling for unity within the Democratic Party, but that doesn’t mean that his supporters will oblige. Yesterday, I spent the day live streaming the Bernie Sanders demonstrations outside of the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. It took mere moments around these activists to realize that these revolutionaries were not planning to roll over and support the Democratic nominee. I interacted with hundreds of Bernie Sanders supporters throughout the day. Activists and delegates alike were adamant about one thing: their voices were being suppressed and they were tired of taking it lying down. Demonstrators felt betrayed and used by the Democratic Party. With the revelations from Wikileaks, it had pushed many over the edge. The speculation that the Democratic National Committee (DNC) was conspiring against them now became fact to the supporters with the emails released. Many on the streets of Philadelphia were truly angry at the DNC and Hillary Clinton. These were passionate people who whole-heartedly believe in the ideas of progressivism. And led by Hillary Clinton, their ideas… Keep Reading

Of Course The Media Was Biased: The RNC Wasn’t a Disaster

Words I would use to describe the Republican National Convention held in Cleveland this past week: magical, historical, energetic, patriotic, peaceful. I was literally buzzing with excitement after the first night of the convention. Talk about an impactful experience — and it was only day one! Thousands of patriotic Americans converged on Cleveland to show their support for the Republican nominee. Between the young kids handing out free water to police on the streets, to the jovial laughs ringing through the convention halls, the air was light and the energy positive. I watched Americans of all socio-economic backgrounds embrace each other and fight for their idea of a better America. The first day of the Republican National Convention was an amazingly successful and impactful event for me. But you would never believe that was the case if you were not at the convention. I woke up Tuesday, excited to share my experiences with the world, only to be immediately disgusted by the rhetoric that was splashed across my twitter… Keep Reading

WATCH: Did Hillary Clinton Have a Seizure On Camera?

A newly surfaced video of Hillary Clinton shows the Secretary of State acting strangely while on the campaign trail. Some are speculating that Clinton may have had a seizure on camera. The video, which was recorded in June but only surfaced in recent days, shows Clinton speaking with the media about Elizabeth Warren as a possible vice presidential pick. While answering questions, Clinton appears startled and quickly jolts her head back and bobbles it seemingly uncontrollably. She laughs, then bobbles her head again. The clip ends with a wide-eyed Clinton joking about her chai tea. Did Hillary Clinton have a seizure on camera during these interviews or was she being dramatic and silly? WATCH: Keep Reading

OKCupid: Liberals Prefer Museums, Yoga, And Crying

The dating site OKCupid released a study entitled, “Words and Politics: How your vote influences your dating profile.” The study used users who self-identified as either a liberal or a conservative, then gather data based on word usage and responses to the dating sites questions. According to OKCupid: This analysis was gathered from 190,000 real OkCupid profiles. These users must have joined in 2016, been from the U.S., and indicated whether they were a “liberal” or a “conservative.” On average, these users answered about 140 questions and their written essays had about 1,000 characters. We do not know the context that these words were used — only that they were mentioned in profiles. To account for the fact that most OkCupid users identify as liberal, we determined the left-right position of each word by comparing the percentage of liberals that use that word to the percentage of conservatives that use it. As can be expected, a lot of stereotypes about conservatives and liberals played out in user profiles. The dating… Keep Reading

Johnson-Weld Town Hall Disappoints Liberty Conservatives

Did the CNN Libertarian town hall capture the hearts and minds of disenfranchised liberty conservatives? For this conservatarian, who watched the town hall from start to finish, I would say a definite no. I still feel there is no candidate running for president that represents my views enough for me to vote for them. I have been very hopeful and optimistic with regards to the Johnson-Weld ticket. They appeal to libertarians and conservatives, I’ve been told. They are both former Republicans, they have executive experience, they can be the answer for liberty conservatives who will not vote for Trump of Hillary. But Johnson-Weld not only hold positions that just don’t jive with my conservatarian views, but the duo doesn’t come across as very presidential. Abortion Johnson-Weld really let me down on the issue of abortion. Not only did Johnson say decisions about abortion should “lie strictly with the woman involved,” but he and Weld defended the governments role in abortion too. Johnson advocated for the government funding of Planned Parenthood while Weld expressed that “government… Keep Reading

Marty, The Flag… It’s Disappearing! — Political Correctness Run a Muck In Pennsylvania

Democrats in Pennsylvania are trying to erase history and stifle free speech by stealing then banning a historic flag on display for Flag Day. Since late May, the Hanover Area Historical Society has been displaying The Clausen Historic Flag Collection in the Pennsylvania State Capitol to celebrate Flag Day. This exhibit features 50 handmade flags from different points in North American history. Historic flags in the exhibit cover a vast range of history. Flags can be seen from the beginning of North American settlement with the Viking Ravens Flag and Christopher Columbus Flag, to more modern flags such as the Territory of Alaska’s flag and the current U.S. 50 Star Flag. The display includes historic flags from time periods in between– this includes flags from the turbulent Civil War era. After two weeks on display, and the evening before a press conference to highlight the display and Flag Day, a Democrat Representative from Philadelphia, Rep. Vanessa Lowery Brown, took it upon herself to remove the Confederate flag from the display. This prompted organizers to contact Capitol Police. Why… Keep Reading

No, Professor Gellers, Not All Conservatives At #YWLS2016 Are White

This week, Turning Points USA (TPUSA) brought over 400 conservative activists to Dallas, Texas for the 2nd annual Young Women’s Leadership Summit. The summit hosts high school and college students from 42 states, training conservatives to identify, empower, and organize for free markets and limited government. TPUSA has been one of the leading organizations for conservative activists. They have a strong social media presence and do extraordinary outreach to students. It’s hard to be a conservative on twitter without seeing fellow ladies of liberty using the hashtag #YWLS and #YWLS2016. Thousands of tweets have been sent out using these hashtags, mostly young women excited to be immersed in conservative ideas. But one liberal professor, Josh Gellers, from the University of North Florida,  joined the conversation as well:   As conservatives, we are constantly defying stereotypes thrust upon us by the left.  Geller’s assumption that the Young Women’s Leadership Summit is a safe space for white women couldn’t be further from the truth. Not only does the conservative movement attract… Keep Reading

Pedophile Teachers Should Be Ostracized Not Glorified

Stop praising and making a demagogue of female teachers who prey on their students. They are pedophiles and should be socially ostracized, not glorified. Nothing makes me more sick to my stomach than reading yet another news story about a teacher having sexual relations with an underage student. Teachers who take advantage of their students are being exposed across the country in alarming numbers. It feels like we cannot go a few weeks without a new sensational story coming out. Like this week, 24 year old Alexandria Vera made headline news when it was exposed that she was impregnated by a 13 year-old student. According to a local Houston news station, KSAT: Vera, an English teacher, allegedly admitted to having a sexual relationship since September with the student. A report said the student was in the teacher’s eighth-grade English class. The DA’s Office said the officer received school records showing the student to be under the age of 14 at the time Vera began the sexual relationship. Vera told the officer… Keep Reading

The Libertarian Party Blew It For Converts

Oh, Libertarian Party… You could have had me. You were this close! I am the demographic you are trying to reach out to: disenfranchised with the Republican Party presidential nominee; a lover of liberty not of political parties; someone searching for a new place to call home that represents the ideas I hold dear to my heart. I was optimistically hopeful. I spent my entire day tuned into the Libertarian Party convention hoping to see the legitimacy that I was yearning for. https://twitter.com/kayteemoyer/status/736989310520569856 Would this be my new place to put my trust? Behind lovers of liberty like myself who wanted to make legitimate change, wanted to be taken seriously, and wanted to defend life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness? Nope. I didn’t find that while watching the Libertarian Party convention. How can we make legitimate change and be taken seriously with the buffoonery I witnessed during the convention? People like presidential candidate Darryl Perry losing his poise, screaming and pounding the podium, not only during the Saturday night… Keep Reading

Are You #ManEnough4Hillary ?

With all the absurdity and pandering this election cycle, it’s hard to tell if campaigns are being serious or it’s just a troll on the internet. A new Hillary Clinton “campaign” photo has been gaining traction on twitter today: #ManEnough4Hillary? I thought the Left despised masculinity? Way to emasculate male voters… #ImNotWithHer pic.twitter.com/bm3zCsePFO — Gabriella Hoffman (@Gabby_Hoffman) May 26, 2016 The hunky lumberjack caught the eye of Twitter with the quote “I am man enough to vote for a woman… are you?” and the hashtag #ManEnough4Hillary. This has to be someone trolling…right? Or is Hillary Clinton’s campaign that out of touch. Upon a little bit of digging, twitter users quickly found that the model in the photo is a stock image, and was recently used in a syphilis ad on a bus. Whoops. Are you #ManEnough4Hillary? How about syphilis? pic.twitter.com/Pi3eSfS7d2 — Matthew Salvatore (@mattywid) May 26, 2016 Keep Reading

3 Ways To Become a Conservatarian Superstar Over Summer Vacation

Hooray!!! The semester is over. But deep down, you know you miss the intellectual political conversations with friends from campus and are yearning to still be politically engaged. Here are three ways to hone in your political philosophy and become a conservatarian superstar while away from your college on summer vacation. 1. Don’t allow that free time to go to waste, educate yourself! The summer is prime time to get up to date on all political happenings. While relaxing and working on your tan by the pool, bring a copy of  The Libertarian Reader with you or read the trending news stories of the day on your iPad. On that same note, stay “social.” Social networking sites, like Twitter, often give readers access to news information that is not covered by the mainstream media. And many times, twitter users get access to breaking news faster than news outlets. If you’re not much of a reader, attend educational seminars like The Leadership Institute’s Youth Leadership School, the Institute For Humane Studies Summer Seminars, or Turning… Keep Reading

Renegade Party: A New Home For Conservative Rebels?

After being blasted on Breitbart as a “Republican spoiler” and “renegade Jew” for refusing to support GOP presumptive nominee Donald Trump, founder and editor of the Weekly Standard, Bill Kristol, is firing back. Taking in stride the comments from the Trump-adoring media outlet, Kristol recently purchased the web domain www.RenegadeParty.com and created the twitter account @RenegadeParty. I've bought https://t.co/xKmuMgr8Eh. Redirects (for now) to https://t.co/Np2BpY3HMA. Ducks all in a row. All that's needed now: a candidate. — Bill Kristol (@BillKristol) May 17, 2016   https://twitter.com/RenegadeParty/status/732676451376365568 Since the rise of Trump, voices on the right have been advocating for a true conservative to step forward as a third party option. Rumors have been swirling of closed door strategic meetings with #NeverTrump Republicans and names such as Mark Cuban, Ben Sasse, and John Kasich have been throw into the mix as third party options. Will the Renegade Party be the new party name for the conservative alternative to a Trump/Clinton race?

Americans Have Forgotten That Private Means Private

Is it just me, or have people lost sight of the concept that a private organization is just that– private? They can make their own rules as they see fit, that is until a progressive’s feeling get hurt and they make it their crusade to tackle the private organizations and all who associate. I hail from Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. My well respected Alma Mater, Bishop McDevitt High School, has been making national news recently. This Catholic private high school barred a student from entering their prom because of what she chose to wear to the event. The student was aware of the dress code and was repeatedly warned by the school that she would not be allowed in the event if she did not abide by the dress code. But Aniya Wolf showed up to the prom on May 6th, donning her tuxedo and brought the local news with her. The story spread like wildfire, with people across the nation screaming the school is bigoted and homophobic for making this decision. But Bishop McDevitt High… Keep Reading

Snowflakes: Stop Shutting Down Free Speech

A lack of diverse political discussion on college campuses does more harm than help to developing students. College is a place for exploring new ideas and opening your mind to concepts you’ve never heard of before; not cowering in fear and retreating at the sight of chalk writings found on your campus sidewalk. What has the environment on college campuses become if students are feeling threatened and unsafe because of someone writing a political candidates name in chalk on a sidewalk? A history of shutting down political discussion, particularly from the right, has been emerging across college campuses and can have a detrimental effect on student’s education. Just recently, when conservative commentator Ben Shapiro came to speak at California State University, Los Angeles, students had to literally sneak into the event due to organizations such as Black Lives Matter and the Black Student Union protesting and obstructing the events entrance. Rather than shutting down speech that is contrary to your beliefs, students should engage on the subject. Students have… Keep Reading

5 Tips For Debating Your Liberal Professor

By this point in the semester, you have probably realized that one of your professors is a raging liberal disguising himself or herself as an everyday professor. Here are five tips when debating your liberal professors: 1. Always be polite and respectful. It is important when debating a topic, especially emotional political topics, that you keep your cool at all times. Raising your voice or getting irrational in some way takes away from the validity of your argument. Listen intently while your professor responds and do not interrupt or try to speak over them. The calmer and more level-headed you can be, the more your fellow students will be open to your opinions and the more your professor will gain respect for you; 2. Choose your battles. If I raised my hand to argue back against my professors every time they presented a skewed view to my class, I would probably be getting the best arm exercise each class! If you have had professors like I have, who only… Keep Reading
