Spokesman Of The Cuban Libertarian Party Kidnapped By State Police

According to Zach Foster, International Libertarian activist, the Cuban Libertarian Party spokesman Nelson Rodriguez Chartrand was kidnapped by the Cuban Police. the State Security shows he is not in the records. Chartrand will either be held hostage or sent to the gulag. According to Mises Cuba, “Chartrand was scheduled to meet up at the Benjamin Franklin Libertarian Library but never made it.”  This is not uncommon and is actually a norm for the state’s treatment of political prisoners. In fact, the Cuban Libertarian Party (Partido Libertario Cubano- Jose Marti) was founded after two members of Mises Cuba were arrested for promoting free markets, small governments, and freedom. According to Tho Bishop, Director of Social Media Marketing at the Mises Institute: “[Ubaldo Herrera] Hernandez, who also oversees the Benjamin Franklin Libertarian Library project, was charged with the crime of “attack”, a common charge for political opponents. According to Mises Cuba and the PanAmPost, Hernandez was arrested after refusing to show ID to an undercover officer working for state security forces.” Keep Reading

In Search Of Monsters

The Democrats in Washington D.C. have been loud about impeaching President Donald Trump for a six month period. It seems to be their one trick pony. In fact, those on the Left are even calling out the blatant obviousness. In an article published on CNBC, a columnist stated that: “Getting back to the Democrats, their entire agenda can now be summed up as: Impeachment, resignation or bust. They’ve put all their eggs in this basket. And if they fail, a lot of their voters will clearly ask what good the current leadership is if it can’t even oust a man so much of the Democratic base sees as nothing short of the devil.” It’s fair to study the constitutionality behind an impeachment and their claims for it. First, they invoke Article II Section 4 of the Constitution, which states: Keep Reading

The Betrayal Of The American Youth

Modern academia is downright shameful. Is this nothing more than exaggerated hyperbole? No, I mean this full stop. Academia has abandoned an entire generation and geared them towards disaster. What used to be the marketplace of ideas is now a nursery of anti-intellectualism. Academia was once known as a place for a young adult to develop his own thoughts by hearing new ideas and contending his ideas with others. It was not established to be a home. Its purpose was to be an intellectual arena, a boot camp for the mind. The decline of academia came when relativism took over. Relativism is the idea that knowledge and morality are all subjective. Which is why you hear the phrase, “Everyone has a right to their own opinion,” uttered so frequently, and while most certainly might be true, it does not mean that everyone has a right their own facts or truth. When you make every argument relative, when moral standards become subjective, you begin to erode our society. Because when… Keep Reading

Don’t Let Them Silence You

A leftist narrative gaining a lot of momentum in our current climate is “hate speech isn’t free speech!”, which, in essence, translates to “this speech, that you use, is not protected by the first amendment”. Seems a bit…convenient. Challenge this narrative, requesting a definition of “hate speech” and you will most likely find out that “hate speech” just means anything with which they disagree. This is why they don’t view your speech as permissible or even defensible under the law (the very law which they do not understand). Liberals also own this narrative so they no longer see it valuable to defend free speech at all. The left wing in American politics is increasingly becoming more radical now that they seem to have a monopoly on allowable opinions. From here on out, the tyranny of the mob dictates. The terrifying reality of this is the censorship effect. There are truly great and decent people who just don’t want to be branded racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, etc. They don’t want to… Keep Reading
