Due To Contradictory Goals, Police Officers Should Not Be Paramedics

Detective Jeff Payne has gained quite a bit of notoriety for his unlawful arrest of Nurse Alex Wubbels. He has been placed on leave by the Salt Lake City Police Department. He has also lost his part time job as a paramedic for Gold Cross Ambulance, a private firm that provides 911 ambulance service to Salt Lake City. It is my opinion that he should have never been employed by both Gold Cross and SLCPD at the same time, even if he had a spotless record as a police officer and a medic. A medic′s first duty is to his… Keep Reading

Detective Payne And Nurse Wubbels: What We Don’t Know

By now most of you have seen the video on your social media feeds of Nurse Alex Wubbels being arrested by Detective Jeff Payne. We all know what happened, but it’s still not clear on why it happened. Here is what we know so far: Marco Torres was running from the police in a pickup truck. The pickup went left of center and collided head-on with a semi driven by William Gray. Torres died at the scene and Gray was critically injured and badly burned. Torres was obviously at fault in the accident, but there′s nothing the police can do… Keep Reading

“Race Realism” Is A Dead End

Progressives like to call libertarians and conservatives ″racist.″ In most cases, this is an empty attack. Real libertarians and true conservatives judge people on their individual faults and merits. We aren′t the type to take an announcer away from a football game just because he has the most common last name in the world. It is progressives who are wrapped up in identity politics. Free market fiction author and philosopher Ayn Rand referred to racism as ″the lowest, most crudely primitive form of collectivism.″ Although progressives routinely cry wolf, there actually are “race realists” out there on the right who… Keep Reading

You Don’t Want Christopher Cantwell On Your Side

Christopher Cantwell is a fascist. That is not meant as a slur or an exaggeration. He says that he is a fascist in his Gab.ai profile. There is a warrant out for his arrest because somebody claims he broke the law during the Charlottesville protests. He professes his innocence. Whether or not he is guilty is not up for me to decide. Cantwell has the right to due process, something that he would not likely get if he were in a similar situation in a fascist country. Not even Nazis are safe from other Nazis. How did Cantwell go from… Keep Reading

Rendering Onto Caesar: Why Trump Supporters Should Allow Leftists To Watch The Play

William Shakespeare lived in a time and place where writing about politics could get him into serious trouble. Queen Elizabeth was his biggest fan and patron so he was careful never to anything bad about her. The Bard had to walk a fine line when it came to contemporary politics, but he had more creative freedom when he wrote about the distant past. His play, The Tragedy of Julius Caesar, was a story about Marcus Brutus, a friend of Julius Caesar who ultimately would betray him. Cassius Longinus, a Roman senator, convinces Brutus that Caesar is becoming too powerful. Brutus… Keep Reading

Conservatives Should Rethink The Death Penalty

Liberals typically do a horrible job of trying to turn conservatives against the death penalty. Here are some examples of largely refuted arguments that need to be put to rest: Argument a): ″If you are pro-life, shouldn′t you be against the death penalty?″ The distinction is pro-innocent-life. Argument b): ″If killing is wrong, why is it okay when the state does it?″ Murder is wrong, but not all killing is murder. Go look up the definition of murder if you have trouble with this. Sometimes, the government has to kill bad people. Did we win World War II by being… Keep Reading

Compassion Is Not a Cause For War

President Trump ordered airstrikes against Syrian airfields after claiming that Assad′s military was responsible for sarin gas attacks against civilian targets. Even if Assad gave the order, compassion for Syrian civilians is a poor reason to bomb Syria. The only time the US should use military force is to protect the US or to protect an ally. Often in spite of the President′s best intentions and the military′s best efforts, bad things happen with our missiles. Targets are often chosen based on faulty intel and missiles stray off course because of faulty guidance systems. Even though the Russians were told… Keep Reading

End Public Financing Of Pro Sports Stadiums

If you love sports, you need to read this article. Everyone across the political spectrum should be opposed to publicly financed stadiums. The Oakland Raiders have recently announced that they are moving to Las Vegas. Their new stadium will be partly paid for with $750 million in public financing. If you hate sports, you will love this article. Show this to everyone you know, because your tax dollars shouldn′t be used to pay for other people′s entertainment. Unless you spend all of your free time in the library or at the park, your fun is either paid for by corporate… Keep Reading

An Open Letter To Protesters Who Block Traffic

Dear Protesters, I totally get why you are blocking traffic. You want everyone else to be as mad as you are. You accept the risk that you might be run over or physically attacked because you believe in your cause. People might be late for work, but this draws attention to your grievances. Blocking traffic might be illegal, but at least nobody is getting hurt, right? Would you still stand in the way if you saw an ambulance with its lights and siren on? I hope you would at least let traffic through in a life or death situation. But… Keep Reading

Hillary’s “Get Out Of Jail Free” Cards

Donald Trump openly talked about sending Hillary to prison while on stage with her during a debate. Many of us would like to see Hillary Clinton held accountable for her past actions. And yet a lot of leftists who wanted George W. Bush tried for war crimes have suddenly decided that arresting former government officials isn’t always pragmatic. The former Secretary of State and presidential candidate still has a number of options left to stay out of Club Fed. Obama could pardon her.  A pardon would end all discussion of Mrs. Clinton serving time for Emailgate, and Obama has until January… Keep Reading

If You Support Trump, It’s Not Too Late To Change Your Mind.

Racism is a very real problem in this country. False accusations of racism are also a problem. Criticize one of Obama′s policies, and you run the risk of being labeled a racist by his supporters. Insist that you have black friends, and they will cite your denial as further proof that you are a bigot. It us quite frustrating to deal with people like this. But the best defense against being accused of racism is to acknowledge it when you see it. First of all, let′s acknowledge that progressives who mock Donald Trump and John Boehner for being ″orange″ are… Keep Reading

Read This Before Rioting At a Political Rally

First of all, never punch anyone in the mouth. If their teeth nick your hand, that could lead to an infection. You will have to take an antibiotic if this happens. And if you punch a person wearing dentures, they could accidentally choke on them and die. So just one punch to the mouth can lead to a manslaughter charge. You are expecting to go to jail, right? There will be police and hundreds of witnesses with cell phones. And don′t think that a mask is enough to keep you out of legal trouble. America′s prisons are filled with people… Keep Reading
