Georgia’s Special Election Takeaways

Earlier this week, Karen Handel defeated Jon Ossoff in dramatic fashion. Although this was supposed to be an important election for the resistance, it simply turned into a repeat of election night. Many on the left were disappointed because of the millions spent and how this was supposed to be a referendum on Trump. Despite this victory for Republicans, the election revealed many negatives and positives in the current state of our nation. There are several takeaways that are important to understanding our current political climate. Keep Reading

Beware The Radical Left

In the early morning of June 14, 2017, James Hodgkinson opened fire on a group of Republicans prior to the Congressional Baseball Game, injuring 3 people and leaving Republican Congressman Steve Scalise in critical condition. The Alexandria Shooting has proven to be a strain on the American people, but this attack differs from the ones that have occurred previously in one key way–the terrorist was a far-left progressive. In prior terror attacks throughout the world, the terrorists were almost always radical Islamists trying to rage jihad on Western Civilization; but this time, the terrorist in question was left-wing Bernie Sanders supporter. Before I continue, let us not forget that this is not the first time that an attacker was associated with progressivism. Jeremy Christian comes to mind. These two attacks and current left-wing culture have led me to believe that there is a new evil brewing within America’s borders: Radical Progressivism. Keep Reading

Why The Jeff Sessions Hearing Was a Complete Waste Of Time

Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ hearing before the Senate intelligence committee was a complete waste of time. All Sessions did was reiterate the same talking points that the White House has been conjuring up for months. Other than that, much of the hearing was a confirmation of former FBI Director James Comey’s claims last week, and Sessions’s repetitive defense of Trump’s firing of Comey. Generally, there was no new information that pushed forward the Trump-Russia investigation. Perhaps the only information divulged quasi-relevance was Sessions’s confirmation of Comey’s private talk with Trump and his concern about being left alone with the president. While Sessions did confirm that Trump had a private meeting with Comey, this information does not bring the Trump-Russia investigation forward. Of course, virtually everyone has heard what Trump’s words to Comey were in the meeting last week, but nothing that was said qualifies as illegal or unconstitutional. While an argument may be made about Trump’s behavior and unethical tendencies, that argument cannot be made for impeachment. Simply put,… Keep Reading

Louisiana House Bill Would Protect The Future Of Free Speech

Free speech is dying on college campuses; this is a known fact all across America. But with the events at Evergreen College and UC Berkeley, it seems as though colleges are now giving in to the anti-free speech movement. Luckily, many conservative legislatures across the nation are now beginning to introduce bills that will uphold this cherished right. One state representative, Lance Harris (R-LA), has proposed a bill that will uphold the First Amendment on campus. His bill, House Bill 269, calls for college management boards to report “any barriers to or disruptions of free expression within state institutions of post-secondary education.” If this bill is passed, colleges could no longer be passive towards the crisis facing free speech. It also requires that “Protests and demonstrations that infringe upon the rights of others… shall not be permitted.” Harris’ bill asserts that “it is not the proper role of an institution to shield individuals from speech protected by the First Amendment of the Constitution” as well.
