Harvey Weinstein: The Tip Of The Iceberg

in Culture/News/Politics by

During a 1998 appearance on The David Letterman Show, when playfully asked by David if someone had coerced her into coming to the show, actress Gwyneth Paltrow, smiling, responds “Do you count Harvey Weinstein as a coercer?” Paltrow continues, “I do all my movies for Harvey Weinstein, that’s Miramax for all of you, and I’m lucky to do them there but he will coerce you to do a thing or two.” A video from 2005 emerged filmed at the red carpet event for Comedy Central’s Roast of Pamela Anderson where actress Courtney Love is asked by reporter Natasha Leggero if…

DACA And The Dream Act, Part 4

in Culture/Law/Politics by

The progressive socialists, the media, and even some RINOs are marching in lockstep, and using illegal sob stories in an attempt to force the citizens of this country to accept the untold illegal aliens in our country at present. The approximate 800,000 DACA immigrants are called “Dreamers” in an attempt to revive the “DREAM ACT” that Congress refuted years ago. The elite socialists and corporatists who are proponents of making the illegal immigrants legal are safely ensconced in their gated communities with no real clear idea of the state of the economy or the middle class that has been living…

The Dawning Of ‘Roy Moore Libertarianism’

in Politics by

Ever since Ron Paul retired from public life in 2012, libertarians have been completely rudderless. As much as libertarians may like to delude themselves that they do not need leaders, it has become abundantly clear that they need them as much as anyone. Without a strong leadership figure, libertarians have accomplished little other than being a national laughingstock. The post-Paul era has been defined by nothing but folly and embarrassment for libertarians, who are stubbornly unwilling to admit the political reality staring them in the face. The silver lining is that it should not be particularly hard for libertarians to…

Report: Mike Pence Backs Assange Pardon Effort

in News/Politics by

Vice President Mike Pence has backed efforts by Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA) to secure a presidential pardon for dissident Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, according to a report by Chuck Johnson of GotNews. Pence also allegedly confirmed that President Donald Trump had seen one of Rohrabacher’s televised appearances, where the California Congressman discussed his communication with Assange, and was sympathetic to the effort. In late September, the President claimed he had “never heard [the prospect of a deal with Assange] mentioned”.

A Sneak Peek At Hans-Hermann Hoppe’s ‘Libertarianism And The Alt-Right’ Speech

in Economics/Politics by

The twelfth conference of the Property and Freedom Society took place last month, in the usual place and with the usual enjoyments. The Hotel Karia Princess was about the same as ever, and I believe I was put up in the same room as last year. Bodrum itself was somewhat busier than last year, which must have been a mercy for its tradesmen and hoteliers – though it remains but a shadow of what it was when I first knew it. This year has seen two earthquakes, at least one terrorist attack, a fallen pound and a bitter argument between…

Columbus, The West, And The Myth Of The Noble Savage

in History/Politics by

Well, it’s Christopher Columbus Day again. And this, of course, means that it is but another occasion for leftists everywhere to repudiate their own civilization. For a few decades now, the 15th century European explorer’s face has been held up as that of Western civilization, i.e. the face of all that is evil in the world. Columbus is the proverbial poster child for the White, Christian, Heterosexual Male, i.e. the contemporary left’s version of Public Enemy Number One. Columbus Day assumes a new significance this year, however, for monuments to Columbus are no longer alone in being targeted for destruction…

DACA And The Dream Act, Part 3

in Culture/History/Politics by

In the final outcome, we must temper the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients with the rule of law. It was Obama who unconstitutionally allowed them to stay, an illegal action that President Trump is trying to bring back to the rule of law that this country is based upon. The children involved in DACA, through no fault of their own, have been placed in an unsustainable position. If President Donald Trump had not stepped in, the courts would have found DACA to be unconstitutional, and it would have been stopped immediately. President Trump has given the Congress six…

Libertarian Republican Likely To Primary Challenge Wyoming Senator

in News/Politics by

Libertarian Republican Erik Prince is strongly considering a run against incumbent Sen. John Barrasso (R-WY), according a report by the New York Times. Barrasso is a fairly average Republican Senator, voting consistently with his party leadership, and is said to be close to Majority Leader Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY). Barrasso currently serves as the Chair of the Senate Environment Committee. Prince has reportedly travelled to Wyoming with his family in order to seek residency there. Prince had previously resided in the state during the 1990s and early 2000s, according to public records.

November 4th: What To Expect

in News/Politics by

The date ‘November 4’ doesn’t exactly bring many important events to mind for most people besides the 2020 presidential election, but given the rate at which groundbreaking news develops in recent months, thinking about what might happen in 2020 quickly becomes exhausting. In fact, it is rather difficult to point out any truly significant historic event that occurred on a November 4th. No government was overthrown; no significant war had broken out, nothing besides a few births and deaths of some mostly obscure historical figures and a collection of past events that hold mostly regional significance at best. However, RefuseFascism.org,…

Does Ethnic Heterogeneity Make Homicide Worse In The Americas?

in Culture/Politics by

When gun-control advocates make international comparisons on homicide rates, they generally employ an assumption that places with more stringent gun control laws have lower homicide rates. Unfortunately for them, this only holds up when countries with both high levels of gun control and high homicide rates are excluded from the analysis. By recognizing the need to exclude most of the world’s nations from this analysis, the gun control advocates are of course implicitly admitting they recognize that gun control cannot explain low homicide rates in many areas. The case of Mexico, for example, illustrates quite well that simply imposing gun control…

The Americans Targeted In Vegas Are What Make America GREAT

in Politics by

A man, Sonny Melton, 29, died, shielding his wife from the bullets. Another commandeered a truck to drive victims of the Oct. 1 massacre in Las Vegas to the hospital. At first, Vanessa, a concert goer, fled the Vegas venue, which was being sprayed with bullets from high-velocity rifles. Then, she turned and ran back. She credits her professional sense of duty as a nurse. We all know it was Vanessa’s heart that enabled her to push past the fear and place herself in the crosshairs. From her hospital bed, Addison Short profusely thanked a stranger who had helped her…

Marsha Blackburn Announces U.S. Senate Run In Tennessee

in News/Politics by

U.S. Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) has announced her bid for U.S. Senate in Tennessee in order to replace outgoing Sen. Bob Corker. Blackburn is expected to receive the backing of conservatives with close ties to the Trump administration, such as David Bossie of Citizens United and Steve Bannon of Breitbart News. She is also reportedly favored by the fiscally conservative Club for Growth. Her main opponent is likely to be U.S. Rep. Stephen Fincher, after Gov. Bill Haslam announced that he will not run for the open seat. Fincher’s decision to run will likely determine whether the Koch brothers, who…

Big Brother Continues Targeting Conservative Pro-Trump Facebook Pages For Censorship

in Politics/Tech by

The Liberty Conservative have done extensive coverage about the growing threat of Big Brother censorship, and we have even been threatened by these Orwellian forces. Anyone to the right of Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) is now under attack, and nobody is safe from the clutches of the surveillance state. The latest publisher to be subject to Big Brother censorship is ‘Other 98% Logic,’ a Facebook page known for lampooning liberals and correcting their fallacies. ‘Other 98% Logic’ had nearly 25 thousand likes and routinely posted conservative, libertarian, and pro-Trump political messages on a daily basis when it was targeted for…

Five Reasons Libertarians Can Support Judge Roy Moore

in Law/Politics by

I worked as Roy Moore’s staff attorney for over three years and know him well. Depicted as a right-wing loon, he’s actually a pensive man who authored thoughtful opinions as chief justice of the Alabama Supreme Court. Five opinions written by Moore stand out as reasons libertarians could support him in the Alabama primary to fill the U.S. Senate seat once held by Jeff Sessions. Like most of his opinions, these received little fanfare or notice.

Stephen Miller Demands Passage Of RAISE Act As Prerequisite For Any DACA Deal

in News/Politics by

Senior Advisor to the President Stephen Miller has outlined the administration’s preconditions for any deal regarding minors affected by Trump’s decision to rescind DACA, according to a report by McClatchy. Miller called for switching to a merit-based immigration system, eliminating protections for unaccompanied illegal alien children, increasing the numbers of immigration enforcement officials, raising visa fees, and implementing e-verify, in a document which endorses most of the core tenets of the RAISE Act, which is also backed by the administration. Overall, there are roughly a dozen proposals mentioned in the list.

DACA And The Dream Act, Part 2

in Culture/Law/Politics by

There are many different sides that need to be looked at in relation to the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, and questions that must be answered.  One question that has not been answered is: why are the beneficiaries of DACA called “Dreamers” by the media and progressive socialists pushing it forward? Could it be that the name was given to these illegal immigrants by Obama to tie them to the Dream Act? As mentioned in part one of my series, Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) have already declared that there would be another Dream…

The Left Loves Mass Shootings

in Culture/Politics by

Hayley Geftman-Gold, recently fired from her job as Vice President for CBS New York, wrote on Facebook that she has no sympathy for the victims of the mass shooting in Las Vegas. This is the reason she was fired, and good for CBS to do the right thing in that regard. Since Geftman-Gold’s remarks, there have been a slew of similar statements posted by private citizens who seemingly have no fear of their candor causing any hiccups in their careers. The comments are a grab-bag of vapid hate speech, most of them are celebratory declarations and sanctimonious denunciations that have become…

DACA And The Dream Act, Part 1

in Culture/Politics by

There is much discussion that needs to be had over Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). According to Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), their discussion with President Donald Trump is a done deal and they will get everything they wanted. Conservatives are up in arms about what the progressive/socialist Democrats claim was an agreement, and fortunately, blaring it from the mountaintops to the media does not make it so. President Trump was elected in part to enforce the nation’s immigration laws and make the borders secure to protect the American people. Building the wall, enhancing border…

Even After The Las Vegas Attack, Gun Control Remains An Irrational Response

in Politics by

Upon hearing about the events in Las Vegas, I, like everyone else, was shocked and distraught. What happened was a horrible event beyond basic human comprehension. Additionally, Stephen Paddock, the gunman who took his own life, is an abhorrent human being who deserved death. Despite my anger, I applaud those who willingly donated blood and started campaigns to help the victims of this attack. Now, in an ideal society, we would all come together to voluntarily help those who have suffered and fight the very cause of these events. Unfortunately, in our society we have to deal with those who…

Stephen Paddock: The Most Plausible Theory Of His Motivation

in Politics by

As I write this, there is only a small handful of facts, or alleged facts, that all of the talking heads in Big Media seem to agree upon regarding “the largest mass shooting in American history.” First, 64 year-old Stephen Paddock, a white man and resident of Nevada, appears to have acted alone when he opened fire upon over 22,000 country music concert attendees in Las Vegas. Second, Paddock had a lot of weaponry, guns of various sorts, in the hotel room that he used as a sniper’s nest. Third, Paddock is a relatively wealthy man who enjoyed gambling and…

After Vegas Shooting, It’s Time To Take Private Security Seriously

in Politics by

In the wake of the Aurora Theater shooting, I suggested that private sector establishments ought to be expected to be more concerned about the safety of their customers. In the case of the Aurora Theater, this was magnified by the fact that the theater was a “gun free zone” and did not allow patrons to carry their own firearms as self defense. At the same time, the theater owners themselves couldn’t be bothered with taking even the most rudimentary steps against allowing a gunman to casually carry multiple weapons from his car into one of the theater’s back doors.  The issue came up…

Terror In Antioch, Tennessee: A Politically Inconvenient Crime

in Politics by

While media talking heads and representatives of the NFL are busy prattling on about the “oppression” that blacks supposedly face on a daily basis in America 2017, there has scarcely been a peep about something that occurred just days ago in a little town in Tennessee called Antioch. When Dylan Roof, a young white man, shot up black congregants in a South Carolina church a few years back, there was not only wall-to-wall media coverage, but politicians at the state and federal levels, including the President and then-Governor Nikki Haley, who were quick to weigh in. Because photographs emerged that…

Steve Bannon Plots Populist Uprising In Colorado Alongside Tom Tancredo

in News/Politics by

Ever since he left the White House, Breitbart News executive director Steve Bannon has been a very busy man. He spent the better part of last week stumping successfully for Judge Roy Moore to aid his Alabama primary victory against his establishment opponent, Luther Strange. Far from resting on his laurels, Bannon traveled to Colorado for a meeting with paleoconservative firebrand Tom Tancredo. “Ok. What the hell. He is here and yes we met. Fascinating guy. No idea what else his plans are here or frankly, what brought him here. But you know he is my boss at Breitbart!” Tancredo…

‘Flake The Snake’ Throws Roy Moore Under The Bus To Virtue-Signal For Radical Islam

in News/Politics by

Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) has turned into one of the least popular politicians in America for standing against President Donald Trump’s populist revolution that has swept the nation. He spent the better part of last year trying to get Hillary Clinton into the oval office, and now he has set his sights on Judge Roy Moore. Former Alabama Supreme Court Justice Roy Moore is a Donald Trump Republican. Despite not being endorsed by Trump (a move that the President publicly admitted may have been a mistake), Moore campaigned as the ultimate iconoclast and soundly defeated his establishment-backed opponent in the…

Raul Labrador: “Strong Possibility” Of “Miscarriage Of Justice” In Bundy Ranch Case

in News/Politics by

Rep. Raul Labrador (R-ID) is planning to retire from Congress to make a run for the Idaho governorship next year, but he has some unfinished business to handle before he leaves Washington D.C. for good. Earlier this month, Labrador penned a letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions expressing serious concern with the Bundy ranch case that has lingered since the legendary 2014 stand-off with the feds. “Recently 53 current and former members of the Idaho Legislature wrote to you expressing serious concerns about the treatment of four Idaho residents in cases related to ‘The Bunkerville Stand-Off’ trials,” Labrador said in…

Mulvaney Slams Wasteful Travel Spending: “Every Penny We Spend Comes From The Taxpayer!”

in News/Politics by

The Director of the Office of Management and Budget, Mick Mulvaney, has released a memorandum directed at the heads of executive departments and agencies in the federal government, calling on them to use commercial air transport where possible. Mulvaney’s memorandum comes in the wake of the resignation of Health & Human Services Sec. Tom Price after it emerged that he had spent roughly $1 million on private planes. Similar allegations of misuse of travel expenses have also been made against other members of the Trump Cabinet, including Treasury Sec. Steven Mnuchin and Interior Sec. Ryan Zinke. “Government-owned, rented, leased, or chartered…

Conservatives Rise: Mike Lee Joins Rand Paul And Ted Cruz In Senate Bloc To Stop Obamacare Bailout

in News/Politics by

President Donald Trump has worked with GOP establishment leaders, more commonly referred to as the swamp, on healthcare reform repeatedly to no avail. The latest attempts to bailout Obamacare have been universally reviled, drawing ire from conservatives, moderates, and liberal Democrats. One of the primary conservatives standing in opposition to Obamacare bailout legislation is Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT). Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) led the way against bailing out Obamacare with Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) right behind him. Lee has now followed suit by offering a complete dismissal of any bipartisan agreements to bail out Obamacare. One of Lee’s senior aides…

Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee Kneels In Protest On Congressional Floor

in News/Politics by

What started with National Football League player Colin Kaepernick last year has become a full blown movement across the country. It slowly moved around the NFL, with other players joining Kaepernick to kneel during the National Anthem to protest their cause. For Kaepernick, it was a social justice cause calling attention to racial inequality. This is the same for other players, while others have done it purely out of solidarity with other protesters. In the last couple of weeks, it’s spread to Major League Baseball and become a more widespread movement since President Donald Trump called anyone who does it…

Health And Human Services Secretary Tom Price Resigns

Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price has been facing an onslaught of criticism from both sides of the aisle in recent days. A series of reports surfaced showing lavish spending on expensive private jets instead of more cost efficient commercial travel. The shock ranged from partisan attacks by Democrats and shocked Republicans who always knew Secretary Price as a fiscal hawk in Congress. News has just broken that Secretary Price has offered his resignation, however. President Donald Trump has accepted the resignation, concluding the Secretary’s downfall from budget hawk to big spender. Prior to the announcement, The Liberty Conservative…

Will President Trump Allow Release Of The Final JFK Assassination Documents?

The assassination of former President John F. Kennedy is known as one of the most tragic moments in United States history. A popular, young President was riding along in a motorcade in Dallas when he was shot dead sitting next to his wife, Jackie. The assassin would later be caught and then killed before he could tell his side of the story. Since, many questions have lingered. Was Lee Harvey Oswald indeed the shooter, or was he just a lowly patsy? If he was indeed the assassin, did he act alone? The basic premise of the story is known through…

Under the terms of the deal, Assange would provide information vindicating Russia of the now-widespread accusation that the country hacked into the Democratic National Committee and subsequently gave the information they acquired to Wikileaks in an effort to assist Donald Trump. In return, Assange would receive a preemptive presidential pardon.

President Trump Tells Migrants To Stay Out, Slashes Number Of Incoming Refugees

During the presidential campaign, immigration was a defining issue for candidate Donald Trump. With bold pledges about rejecting refugees and building a big wall on the Mexican border, he was due to tackle immigration unlike any other President in recent history. As President, that has changed as Trump has struggled to match policy with his campaign promises in the midst of constant criticism. He has stood firm on his travel bans though, with battles raging all throughout the court system. It was something many opponents labeled as a Muslim ban, though he stood firm on the claim that it wasn’t.…

When news broke, the figures spread like a wildfire through the media and resulted in bipartisan outrage. Secretary Price, who has long portrayed himself as a fiscal conservative, was caught in a situation that most believed to be completely indefensible. The criticisms came with two points. Not only was the spending excessive, but it was also unnecessary. Various media reports showed available commercial flights that…

Steve Bannon Scores First Major Victory In His War Against The Republican Establishment

The storyline was established for the Alabama Republican primary. Another election between two opposing foes became a critical battleground between opposing factions. While the conservative grassroots has long butted heads with the Republican establishment, tensions were never higher. With both sides pulling out the big guns and piling on an avalanche of money, the race was the center of national intrigue. Through out the primary, former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon was on the ground in Alabama making sure that the conservative grassroots comes out on top.

Roy Moore: A Victory For The Hard Right

A seismic earthquake hit Alabama’s elections on Tuesday. Former Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court Roy Moore primary challenged incumbent Senator Luther Strange, and in doing so he took on the entire Republican establishment – from Mitch McConnell, to Mike Pence, Donald Trump, and even the NRA – and won. Judge Moore accomplished this despite being outspent by a more than 10-to-1 margin. Roy Moore’s victory is proof that big money and national endorsements don’t matter, what matters are the issues and the record that a candidate runs on. And there’s no doubt that Judge Moore’s hard right bona…

I’ve visited Buzzfeed three times. The first time was to take a silly little test to find out which Batman villain I am (turned out to be Bane, no surprises there) and the second was to read a piece called “43 Inconceivable Facts About “The Princess Bride” You Probably Never Knew.” These first two encounters were innocent and banal but they were also intended to amuse me, which they did to a slight degree. My third visit to Buzzfeed, however, was amusing but not deliberately so. The banality of this content wasn’t premeditated, it wasn’t part of the act. No,…

Harvard Shames Women With Endorsement Of Sexist Austin Petersen’s US Senate Campaign

Any young woman who has organized conservatives or libertarians on campus can tell you first hand that sexism is a lingering problem. Dealing with young males emboldened by this toxic culture is hard enough, but leadership figures exhibiting blatant misogyny is over the line. And it is what I experienced first hand from perpetual candidate Austin Petersen.

That is what was so shocking about seeing the Harvard Political Review, of all places, essentially endorsing Austin Petersen’s…

Kicked To The Curb: Trump Abandoned ‘Loser’ Strange Ahead Of Alabama Primary

The Alabama Republican primary had long been labeled as a critical flashpoint between the party establishment and insurgent conservative activists. Former State Supreme Court justice Roy Moore, who has led in the polls from early on, has been seen as the anti-establishment candidate. The social conservative is known for not pulling any punches in his religious and political views. Despite him being the outsider candidate who is being massively outspent, President Donald Trump had been supporting establishment favorite Senator Luther Strange for months. It was a move that puzzled many supporters given that he once campaigned on the slogan “drain…

Why Rand Paul Is Wrong On Graham-Cassidy

in Politics by

The Donald Trump era has made Washington D.C. a little more entertaining, but has done little to change how the Beltway operates. Democrats still hate Republicans, Republicans still hate leadership, and Wall Street still controls the Treasury. So it goes. As such, when I had heard that a last second Obamacare reform bill had come out, I had assumed that – like Ryancare, “Skinny Repeal”, and other such gimmicks – we were dealing with another Obamacare-lite measure that did little more than paint Obama’s legislative nightmare red. To my great surprise, I was wrong. While far from being my ideal…

The administration believes Paul represents the best hope for passing the bill, with Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) seen as less likely to come over. In particular, they are banking on the warm relationship between President Donald Trump and Sen. Paul, a frequent defender of the administration during his televised appearances.

No, Rand Paul Is Not To Blame For Obamacare Repeal Failing

in Politics by

Healthcare is an important issue to many Americans for obvious reasons. If health coverage is unavailable or substandard, that can leave people without treatment and cause them undue suffering. For this, the simple fix for Democrats was to massively increase federal involvement in the industry. While some of these ideas may sound good in theory, the reality of the situation is that the more government doesn’t equal a better society. In terms of Obamacare, this has been demonstrably true. In the several years since Obamacare’s passage, Republicans have made this issue their number one pledge and it has been a…

The Absolute Absurdity Of The #TakeAKnee Debate

Of all the headlines taking control of the papers and social media, entertainers bending their knees appears to be at the top of the list. National Football League free agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick made headlines last year repeatedly for refusing to stand during the National Anthem, a move he said was protesting racial inequality across the country. In the time since, other players have jumped on board, and it’s even spreading to other sports. Liberals celebrate such an apparently courageous stand, and opponents are triggered by knees being bent during a song. Both sides are deeply passionate about the topic…

If Paid Athletes Can #TakeAKnee, Can Paid Employees Express Political Beliefs Without Consequence As Well?

President Donald Trump’s recent tweets regarding the prevalence of NFL athletes kneeling during the national anthem was met with immediate disapproval from haters. Though tweets from Trump are always susceptible to backlash, the arguments against Trump, this particular time, hit some good points. The prominent arguments being stated are that kneeling during the National Anthem is a right protected under the 1st Amendment of the Constitution, and that political speech is not what the athletes are paid to do and the athletes must respond to their fan feedback. This is clearly a tough topic to have a simple opinion on…

Trump Is Right Yet Again, Colin Kaepernick Is A Son Of A Bitch

son of a bitch

There are two reasons that Colin Kaepernick is out of a job in the National Football League. The first and most important reason is that he’s a lousy quarterback. This isn’t unique to Kaepernick, as there are plenty of mediocre players at all positions in the NFL. This brings us to the second reason that he’s an unemployed bum: He brings with him enough baggage to travel to Europe, baggage which other middling players have the good sense to leave in the closet, even if they agree with his sanctimonious posturing. Kaepernick kneels during the national anthem to protest the…
