$29,000 Reasons To Call Donald Trump Supporters Racist?

There has been no shortage of controversy surrounding the Ron Paul inspired activist group Young Americans for Liberty since Cliff Maloney Jr took over as president of the organization. Fresh off his time as leader of the youth arm of the Rand Paul campaign, Cliff took over in May of 2016, and almost immediately became embroiled in controversy. Within only a couple of weeks of Cliff taking over at YAL, National Field Director Ty Hicks posted a message to the YAL Chapter Presidents group demanding that (due in part to his support for Trump) YAL chapters refrain from hosting Milo… Keep Reading

Rising Liberty Star Eric Brakey Announces Maine US Senate Run

The liberty movement has seen our political momentum stagnate in the past year, and with activist groups all over the country antsy to get back to the work of winning elections it appears a key race for our cause has arisen from the far Northeast, in the old Ron Paul 2012 stronghold of Maine. It is here that state senator Eric Brakey has announced that he is running for US Senate, challenging Independent Angus King for his seat. Brakey will be running on a libertarian platform that has arguably led to his enviable record of winning in traditionally Democrat areas, as he got… Keep Reading

Antifa “Doxxes” The Liberty Conservative Writers, Hoppe Caucus

It was very shocking to get on Facebook and see that two of this website’s finest writers, editor Shane Trejo and guest contributor Mitchell Steffen, had their personal information posted by a blogspot website identifying themselves as “Antifa Libertarians”. This is a tactic known as “doxxing”, a public shaming method popularized by the left and amplified greatly by the rise of social media. This was done in retaliation for the coverage provided to the Hoppe Caucus’s event with Richard Spencer by The Liberty Conservative at the International Students for Liberty Conference (ISFLC), and indeed a retaliation towards the people who… Keep Reading

YAL Leader Promoted After Calling All Trump Supporters Racists

The unfortunate news came Tuesday that Ty Hicks, the Young Americans for Liberty (YAL) National Field Director who declared that all Trump supporters are racist, has been promoted to Executive Vice President of YAL. This news comes on the heels of the election of Donald Trump, who received support from a wide swath of youth activists from across the conservative and libertarian movements, some of whom are YAL activists. The anti establishment wave that swept through the nation this year has energized the right wing in a way that we haven’t seen in a very long time, a position that libertarians should be… Keep Reading

CRYBULLIES: Cornell Social Justice Warrior’s Heckle, Shout Down Rick Santorum

In an unprecedented act of incivility and rudeness, the Standing Up for Racial Justice chapter at Cornell University shouted down Senator Rick Santorum as he gave a talk regarding conservative values and the 2016 election. Before the Senator even came out on stage it was clear that he was going to be in for a rough owoight, as Cornell College Republicans president Olivia Corn was shouted down and mocked even during the introduction for Senator Santorum. Even as she pleaded for the protestors to be respectful (and was mocked for doing so) the cry bullies refused to relent. They continually yelled… Keep Reading

NOT GUILTY: Oregon Wildlife Refuge Patriots Cleared Of All Charges

In a stunning victory for liberty the seven people who were charged with conspiracy to impede federal workers from doing their jobs, having weapons on federal property and several other crimes were found not guilty on all counts leveled against them. To review for those who do not remember, the Bundy family along with several other patriots occupied an empty building in Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in solidarity with a family (the Hammonds) who were facing prison time over their failure to control a fire that ended up on federal lands (minimal damage was done).

The Liberty Conservative Endorses Writing In Ron Paul For President

We are just 5 weeks away from the general election, in the homestretch of what has been an awful campaign cycle for liberty activists. While there have been very bad cycles in the past, this is the first general election in my personal memory where I found every candidate to be wholly unappealing. Between the failure of the Rand Paul campaign to catch on, the ineptitude of the Johnson/Weld campaign and the general lack of alternative presidential candidates, many liberty conservatives and libertarians find themselves without a candidate who is genuinely deserving of their vote. They find themselves caught between three evils,… Keep Reading

The Liberty Conservative Endorses Rebekah Bydlak For Congress

The Liberty Conservative has made many congressional endorsements in the past, though this year we have been saddened at the seemingly low number of true liberty candidates putting themselves out there for congressional runs.

Eric Brakey SCHOOLS Neocon War Pigs In EPIC Speech At RNC 2016

One of the negative byproducts of the rise of Trump and the general lack of libertarian involvement since that rise has been a demonstrably less pro liberty delegate slate than what we had in 2012. Fortunately, CSPAN provided us with a breath of fresh air in the form of this impassioned speech from a Liberty Conservative endorsed state senator from Maine, Eric Brakey. Brakey, one of the rising stars of the liberty movement, introduced separate resolutions to condemn the war in Libya as well as remove language from the Republican platform supporting military intervention in Syria.

After the horror of the Orlando night club shooting, which killed over 50 people and injured over 50 more, each party has scrambled to encroach on fundamental Constitutional rights of the American people in an attempt to provide them with a sense of security. On the Democrat side, as we speak, members of the house of representatives are staging a sit in protest over the house GOP’s refusal to replace due process with secret lists as the tool to determine whether or not someone can be denied the right to own a gun.  Unfortunately, on the Republican side we are… Keep Reading

Why Milo Yiannopoulos Matters To The Liberty Movement

If you’re a conservative or libertarian who is active on social media, you have likely heard of the latest personality to sweep through the youth culture on the right, Milo Yiannopoulos.

His talks generally consist of Milo going to a college, reciting facts and delivering analysis on a variety of topics (whether it be Islam, feminism, immigration, “social justice” or a number of others which are big on campus) and watching the leftists on that campus go absolutely insane… Keep Reading

Libertarian Party Sells Their Soul, Nominates Johnson/Weld

When the Libertarian Party was founded it was intended to be the party of free markets, civil liberties and a non interventionist foreign policy. Though electoral success was fleeting and sparse, the party quickly grew a reputation as being a party of principle. By nominating dedicated activists activists like David Koch and Ron Paul and Harry Browne to lead their party, the Libertarian Party established the level of dedication placed on being principled in no uncertain terms.

William Weld Signed Letter Supporting PATRIOT Act

The nomination of former Massachusetts Governor William Weld as the Libertarian Party’s Vice Presidential nominee was not one which was met without controversy. Activists booed Weld throughout the convention and there even had to be a second ballot to ultimately confirm him as Vice President. This was due to Weld’s positions on spending, gun control, war, the EPA and a host of other issues. That being said, this author has discovered something which was not brought up during the fight over Weld’s nomination and is an absolutely damning position for anybody who claims to care about the 4th amendment.

Where We Go From Here: The Rising Stars Of The Liberty Movement

Donald Trump has, in the last two weeks, wrapped up the 2016 Republican presidential nomination and ensured what many are calling “the worst election of our lifetimes” by making this a Trump vs Clinton election.
