Attorney General Jeff Sessions Doesn’t Believe In The Tenth Amendment

Federal government officials who believe in the Constitution and limited government are generally a rarity. In modern American politics, the federal level is expected to do most things in society. Lower level governments from state to municipal are merely administrative extensions to the will of the top. It’s the type of structure that is contrary to the vision laid out by our founders, and the natural downfall of any republic. In recent decades, this has accelerated. In the post-9/11 America, former President George W. Bush used the tragic terrorist attacks of September 11th, 2001 to massively grow the federal government.… Keep Reading

Hollywood Sexual Assault Culture Is Collapsing Like A House Of Cards

Sex crimes are nothing new for Hollywood. For years, there has been an alleged culture of pedophilia, and Hollywood certainly has its share of child predators. Former child actor Corey Feldman has recently made waves of trying to expose this, threatening to turn up the heat, and reveal those who victimized him as a child. The rampant sex crimes aren’t just limited to children though, as exposed by the recent wave of Harvey Weinstein allegations. One after another, women are coming forward and gaining strength off one another. Whereas the powerful names in the Hollywood elite were once protected, everything… Keep Reading

Justice Department Changes Stance On Lois Lerner Scandal Under Trump Administration

A scandal that rocked the Internal Revenue Service and the political right was frequently brushed aside by Democrats. The view of the Democratic Party and its aligned politicians was that it was a politically motivated attack that was overblown for partisan purposes. While they were right about it being politically motivated, it was only partisan in nature because the government under a Democratic administration made it that way. The Justice Department predictably failed to do its job and advance justice under the Obama administration. Despite Lois Lerner and the IRS using tax law to attack political opponents, nothing was ever… Keep Reading

Hanoi Jane Shames Harvey Weinstein’s Victims For Their Whiteness

The ongoing controversy surrounding Harvey Weinstein’s fall from grace has rocked Hollywood and left people across the nation watching in awe. Numerous victims have come forward and it is clear that many in Hollywood knew of this illicit activity, but kept quiet. The things these victims experienced by a man who exploited his power status are horrific, but this culture has seemingly been normalized in Hollywood. How do so many people watch as Weinstein sexually harasses and assaults women and remain silent?

Why Gary Johnson Is Wrong About The System Coming Down To Two Parties

The popular two-term Republican Governor turned two-time failed Libertarian presidential candidate recently revealed that the third time is not a charm. In a Fox Business interview, he stated that he would not be running for office again in the next election. While many libertarians may breathe a sigh of relief after his poor showing in the last election cycle, he made another statement that is interesting. The two-time Libertarian Party candidate for President of the United States stated that everything does boil down to the parties. Essentially, because he couldn’t break through, Johnson thinks that it’s impossible for a third… Keep Reading

Gary Johnson Officially Rules Out Running Again In 2020

In New Mexico, Gary Johnson enjoyed strong electoral success. As a Republican candidate running for Governor against a Democratic incumbent in 1994, he won with just under 50 percent of the vote. This number would increase by about five percent in the re-election cycle. His popularity would lead him to run for President as a Republican, before dropping out of the two-party system to join the Libertarian Party. Third parties do not enjoy much of any success at the federal level in the United States. If anyone outside of the two-party system does manage to succeed outside of the machine,… Keep Reading

Senators Bob Corker And Jeff Flake Are Political Showboats

Political hyperbole is nothing new in history. Since the earliest of elections, political opponents have spoken ill of each other and gotten quite heated. Even in recent years, excessive hyperbole and overblown insults are the norm. Former President George W. Bush was often compared to Adolf Hitler, despite the fact he didn’t murder millions of people or consolidate his country into a total dictatorship. Former President Barack Obama was often compared to a number of socialist and communist tyrants in history, despite never quite reaching the extremes of the murderous and tyrannical.

Deranged Congressional Black Caucus Member Makes Terrorist Threats Against President Trump

A lot is made of the escalation of partisanship and tension in Washington D.C. Violence is rising with mass shootings, riots, out-of-control protests gone wrong, and threats among even politicians. As politicians exit Washington D.C. into retirement to get away from the madness, they’re sounding the alarm on these unprecedented times. The problem with this criticism is it is often entirely one sided. The blame for the rise in tension and violence has been solely placed at the feet as President Donald Trump over the course of the last year.

The Declassified JFK Files And The Assassination Blame Game

History is always changing over time. As perspectives shift and fresh minds assess old information, events are judged from varying points of view. Sometimes history is even lucky enough to benefit from new information and these nuggets can fill in the blanks. But sometimes, we get remarkable insight and a treasure trove of information. This is shown by the recently declassified files relating to the assassination of former President John F. Kennedy. While there was no bombshell about government involvement, additional shooters or confirmation of some other conspiracy theory, history has been updated and expanded a bit. An interesting tidbit… Keep Reading

Recent Dossier Revelations Show Democrats To Be Hypocrites On Foreign Influence

The narrative has been fairly consistent since businessman Donald Trump was elected to the White House. At best, he was boosted by a foreign government and his inner associates may have sought the help of the Russians. At worst, the President himself could be compromised. These are very real concerns Democrats have had for months. News such as Donald Trump Jr. meeting with Russian officials to gain dirt on Hillary Clinton provoked national outrage. The mainstream media lost its mind as prominent Democratic politicians and progressive activists all sounded the alarm. Regardless of whether Trump Jr’s move was right or… Keep Reading

Rep. Justin Amash Slams Sellout Republicans Who Support Deficit Spending

While social issues and certain philosophical differences separate Democrats and Republicans on the spectrum, in terms of power, they agree on a great deal. There can never be too much power and money in Washington D.C. This was all supposed to change, however, at least for the Republican Party. In response to the rise of former President Barack Obama, the tea party movement rose to prominence pushing a limited government message that centered around fiscal conservatism.

Congressman Thomas Massie Rightfully Votes Against Otto Warmbier Act

Congress has a habit of giving favorable names to legislation it deems necessary to pass, but names that can not always be honest to the truth. Take the Patriot Act for example. Introduced in the aftermath of the tragic September 11th attacks, the title implies patriotism at a time when the country needed it most. Beyond the title, the legislation itself was anything but patriotic. These are the games Congress plays. They know how to deceive the American public. So when the Otto Warmbier Act hit the floor, it was expected to pass without resistance. For the most part, it… Keep Reading

Hollywood is being torn apart by numerous allegations of sexual harassment involving Harvey Weinstein, who was a prominent figure before his fall from grace. Numerous women have stepped forward describing various instances of sexual acts that were not consented to. Weinstein has been blacklisted across Hollywood as organizations and individuals alike cut ties. For conservatives, this became a moment to seize on the hypocritical nature of Hollywood liberalism.

The topics of the draft and selective service enrollment, as well as military service in general, have become hot button issues.

How George W. Bush Went From Liberal Pariah To Hero

Eight years of the Bush Administration and liberals across America had more than enough of George W. Bush and Dick Cheney. The President and Vice President at the time, respectively, had reinvented American foreign policy in the aftermath of the September 11th attacks. Although intervention abroad wasn’t exactly new, the War on Terror took things to a new level. With this new emphasis on combating terrorism, domestic policies changed as well. The surveillance state grew significantly and the Bill of Rights eroded. Because of all these developments, liberals called the former President names such as Hitler.

As the controversy surrounding the Niger attack escalates, Congress is again faced with the issue of war powers.

This has been used and abused across administrations. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC), a known supporter of endless war, was recently asked in an interview about the Niger attack.

Liberals Demonstrate Anti-Humanitarian Hypocrisy By Supporting Illegal Immigrant Abortions

Immigration is a hot button issue. The rise of candidate Donald Trump and his ascension to the White House escalated the controversy surrounding illegal immigration. Under the previous administration of Barack Obama, those who resided here illegally were given greater leniency as undocumented immigrants. When Trump criticized those who could not enter our country lawfully, he was torn to shreds for it by the liberal press. For many pro-illegal immigration liberals, this is a humanitarian issue. Laws regarding immigration are irrelevant when lives are at stake. The issue is a humanitarian issue, but the complicated legal issue runs much deeper… Keep Reading
