The Absolute Absurdity Of The #TakeAKnee Debate

in Culture/Politics by

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?

in Philosophy/Politics by

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

in Politics by
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…

Senator Ted Cruz Comes Out Against Cassidy-Graham, Says Mike Lee Is With Him!

in News/Politics by

Republicans currently are mounting a last minute effort to ram through any legislation attacking the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, but it isn’t going so well. Moderates and constitutional conservatives are both souring on the legislation, and its chances of passage have never looked worse. As is the story with previous attempts, moderates are concerned it goes too far and conservatives feel it hasn’t gone far enough toward repealing Obamacare. The big tent is not helping the GOP make America great again. Republicans have little room for loss and have already lost too much. Sens. Rand Paul (R-KY) and…

Rand Paul Willing To Negotiate On Graham-Cassidy If Block Grants Halved

in News/Politics by

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) has laid out his precondition for negotiation on the Graham-Cassidy health care reform bill in a Sunday interview with the Washington Post. The Senator has declared he will consider backing the bill if the block grants given to the states by it were substantially lowered. “Would I talk to them if they said they wanted to make the block grants half as much? I might,” Paul said. “Nobody has really offered me that, to say, ‘Well, we could spend less’. But we’re going to have a $700 billion deficit, and this is an entitlement program.” Paul acknowledged…

Hillary Clinton Refuses To Say Whether Child Predator Anthony Weiner Should Be Thrown Behind Bars

in News/Politics by

Politics can be a dirty game, but much of what happens off the field can be worse. While many politicians have a diverse number of skeletons in their closets, few in recent memory match up to Anthony Weiner. The former New York Congressman was forced out of office after he lied about sending lewd pictures of himself to women on Twitter. This would not be Weiner’s last incident. He was more recently caught sending pictures of himself lying in bed with his toddler son and even sending lewd pictures to a 15-year-old girl. The activity involving the minor is not…

Dr. Jimmy Kimmel?

in Culture/Politics by

America is no stranger to celebrities flaunting their politics. The entertainers we see on our television screens and in the movie theaters often become elitists in their perspectives. For this, their money and their name are often used by politicians looking to advance an agenda. More often than not, the beneficiaries of these celebrity activists are the political left. Hollywood in general has developed a reputation for being agents of the Democratic Party. In recent history, the number one achievement of the Democratic Party is the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, otherwise known as Obamacare. So it’s only natural…

What Makes America Great?

in Philosophy/Politics by

Now that the slogan “Make America Great Again” has come and gone, it’s time to seriously explore what makes the American legacy great. The only way to make America great again is to understand what made it great in the first place, and this may be where the President is falling short in a number of areas. Putting America first goes beyond immigration policy and making it great again goes beyond just combating snowflakes. The American government was built on a foundation of limited government. In fact, the Articles of Confederation created a federal government so weak it could barely…

If Don Is a Con, So Is Ron: Reagan Vs. Trump

in Politics by

President Trump’s meetings with Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi over the debt ceiling and DACA provoked some of his high-profile supporters to abandon him—or at least to speak as if they were ready to do so. Admittedly, neither am I particularly impressed by some of Trump’s latest moves. That being said, given that, as I explained on numerous occasions during the campaign, my support of Trump always had infinitely more to do with what he had already succeeded in accomplishing as a candidate, as opposed to what he promised to achieve as President, I am without the grave disappointment that…

Trump Proclaims Rand Paul Can Be Won Over On Graham-Cassidy

in News/Politics by

President Donald Trump has proclaimed that he believes Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) could ultimately back the Graham-Cassidy health reform bill, which aims to repeal and replace Obamacare. On Saturday, Trump tweeted: “I know Rand Paul and I think he may find a way to get there for the good of the Party!” The tweet echoes his remarks from last night’s rally in Alabama, where the President stated, “I haven’t given up on him, because I think he may come around.” “Wouldn’t it be ironic if he took John McCain’s place — and they definitely do not like each other. Wouldn’t that be…

Senator Rand Paul Is Once Again Right To Oppose Obamacare Lite

in Politics by

Republicans have pledged for several years to repeal the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, otherwise known as Obamacare. It has been a rallying cry for most members in a party that rally comes together under one unifying message. Yet for all these years of rhetoric, Republicans have failed to follow through in the several months they’ve had control of Congress and the White House. The failure has been often blamed by opponents of the repeal measures, as it is now. The Graham-Cassidy Bill, a nickname for the current repeal effort being spearheaded by Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Bill…

Stop Shopping Until You Drop. Or Until A Terrorist Drops You

in Politics/World by

“Another attack in London by a loser terrorist,” tweeted President Trump. “These are sick and demented people who were in the sights of Scotland Yard.” Prime Minister Theresa May and the mad media fumed over the president’s insinuation that the Parsons Green “bucket bomber” was a “Known Wolf,” and not a lone wolf. But Donald Trump was entirely on the mark. May and her men knew Yahyah Farroukh (whose information the British press is protecting). The “Known Wolf,” left free to hunt for prey, is the rule more than the exception in a country, Britain, that will do nothing to…

The Liberty Conservative Endorses Roy Moore In AL Senate Race

in News/Politics by

The Liberty Conservative has announced that it is endorsing Judge Roy Moore in the special election for U.S. Senate in Alabama. Moore is set to face establishment stalwart Sen. Luther Strange in Tuesday’s primary runoff. Roy Moore’s record shows that he is a man of principle, and a proven defender of constitutionally limited government and states’ rights. If elected, Moore has pledged to stand up to Mitch McConnell, and to stand with Senate conservatives such as Rand Paul and Mike Lee. By contrast, Strange, a former Washington lobbyist, is being propped up to the tune of $8 million by McConnell-linked…

We Have To Stop Fighting The Russia-Trump Probe

in Politics by

Recently, new and damning revelations have surfaced in the Robert Mueller inquiry into the alleged Russia-Trump collusion during the 2016 election. Undeniably, many on the right and the left are in shock at the level of depth Mueller and his team prosecutors have gone to unravel the mystery. In essence, they are asking the questions of “what happened,” “who,” and “why?” With this in mind, many on the right—especially in Trump’s base—need to accept the fact that the investigation is reaching an unprecedented level after the allegations of Russian-linked tinkering in the 2016 election were revealed. Yes, it is drawn…

Government Regulation And Crony Capitalism Is Keeping Thousands In Florida Without Power

in Economics/News/Politics by

Almost two weeks have passed since Hurricane Irma made landfall in South Florida, yet tens of thousands remain without power. With temperatures regularly eclipsing over 90 degrees, these outages are not only a grave inconvenience for Floridians cleaning up after the storm, but have proved to be deadly. Given the power of Irma, it is not surprising that it has left behind incredible devastation. Unfortunately it is also not surprising that it is a government-protected utility that has done the most to impede recovery. The pain and suffering currently being felt is the direct result of government policy and the…

Rand Paul Backs Tillerson In Trump Administration’s Internal Iran Deal Dispute

in News/Politics by

Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) has called for the United States to remain in the Iran nuclear deal, providing new negotiations regarding restricting Iran’s ballistic missiles are conducted, in an interview with Politico. In doing so, he has backed the position of Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, who is said to favor maintaining the nuclear agreement with Iran, albeit with some modifications to strengthen the current arrangement. Tillerson’s position echoes that of Trump’s during the 2016 presidential campaign period. Both Trump and his campaign advisers argued that while they did not support the Iran deal, they would respect the fact that a deal…

Trump’s China-Sanctions Madness Imperils The Dollar

in Politics/World by

Last week US Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin warned the US will impose new sanctions on China if it doesn’t conform to UN sanctions on North Korea: “If China doesn’t follow these sanctions, we will put additional sanctions on them and prevent them from accessing the U.S. and international dollar system, and that’s quite meaningful.” In other words, the administration wants to sanction one of the US’s biggest trading partners, and the world’s second-largest economy. China is the world’s third-largest recipient of Americans exports, behind only Canada and Mexico. China is the world’s largest source of imports for Americans, slightly ahead…

The Value Of The Greek & Roman Classics

When a member of the House of Commons rises to speak on a subject in which he has a pecuniary interest, both the rules of the House and plain decency require him to declare that interest. It is a just requirement, and I propose to follow it here. My agreed title for this morning is “The Value of the Greek and Roman Classics.” I run the Centre for Ancient Studies, which provides tuition in Greek and Latin and Classics in general. I am also the author of twelve novels set in the early Byzantine Empire. Give or take the inevitable…

President Trump Offers Nothing But Hot Air For His Disingenuous UN Speech

in Politics/World by

President Donald Trump gave an “America First” speech in front of the United Nations today, speaking out in favor of national sovereignty, deriding the evils of socialism and communism, and calling for other countries to contribute more for global security. However, examining Trump’s record against his rhetoric shows that his speech today consisted of mostly hot air. “As President of the United States, I will always put America first, just like you, as the leaders of your countries will always, and should always, put your countries first,” Trump said toward the beginning of his speech. However, Trump’s foreign policy has…

Progressive Socialism And The Democrats

in Politics by

The liberals of the Democratic Party have given way to the progressive-socialists that have overtaken their party. Every law passed under the Obama administration was further down the pathway toward a totalitarian government that would have been used to further control the citizens of this country. The perception that the Democratic Party is that they must retain power, and that the end justifies the means. This is prevalent in many facets of their agenda. They now claim that words or ideas that they disagree with are a form of violence. Now, “safe spaces’ and “free speech zones” have become the…

Johnny Appleseed: Land Speculator, Alcohol Dealer, Capitalist

in Culture/Politics by

Similar to the English legend of Robin Hood, the character Johnny Appleseed has evolved over time into a progressive icon. In the former, the famed outlaw, made an enemy of the government by reclaiming unjust taxes, became a socialist folklore hero who “stole from the rich and gave to the poor.” Johnny Appleseed, an American legend, is depicted as a selfless peripatetic, traveling the country planting apple trees so that nobody would go hungry. He lived an ascetic lifestyle, preached the gospel of Jesus Christ, and refused to hurt any of God’s creatures (one apocryphal tale claims that he angrily…

Book Review: “Free Speech Isn’t Free”

in Culture/Politics by

So the time has come for me to review a book written by my boss (my tertiary boss to be more specific. I work three jobs, so you know I’m amongst the societal elite). More specifically, it is Roosh V’s most recent book Free Speech Isn’t Free, the first of his books to be written while I was on staff at Return of Kings. FSIS is a relatively short (a little more than 200 pages), immensely readable tome that provides several things: most obviously a harrowing story of one man’s struggle against government and mob censorship, it is also a…

Rand Paul Confronted Globalist General H.R. McMaster Over Afghan Surge

in News/Politics by

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) met with National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster recently and confronted him over his advocacy for increased U.S. presence in Afghanistan, according to an interview with Reason on Friday. “I saw McMaster not too long ago, and I gave him grief about the Afghan War and said it’s a huge mistake,” Paul recounted to Reason‘s Matt Welch. “Well, but it’s not nation building,” McMaster replied. “How can it be anything but national building?” Paul asked McMaster. “We’re on our 16th year there, and you think you’re still fighting the last war. What you’re doing is trying to create a…

Why Natural Disasters Are Worse For Poor Countries

in Economics/Politics by

In the wake of hurricane Harvey, disaster experts were shocked by how few deaths resulted from the storm: ““It was astounding that we didn’t have a much larger loss of life,” said Phil Bedient, co-director of a Rice University effort to research severe storms and evacuations. A recent count puts total storm-related deaths at 82, out of a metropolitan population of more than 6.5 million. The relative lack of lives lost is being attributed to a variety of factors including luck, the timing of evacuation orders, and “swift action by first responders.” There’s no doubt that these factors contributed to…

Let The View And Antifa Both Have Their Say

in Philosophy/Politics by

While scrolling through my Facebook newsfeed, from time to time I come across posts asking if The View should be canceled. No doubt, the talk show format consists of a heavy amount of Trump-slamming. The hosts take every opportunity granted to them to ridicule and condemn President Donald Trump. When strong conservative women like Ann Coulter make an appearance presenting legitimate facts, the panel not only dismisses her viewpoints but also tries to shame her with short rants by washed up comedian Whoopi Goldberg followed by thunderous applause from the left-leaning audience. For guests like Kellyanne Conway, Laura Ingraham, and Sarah…

What If Hillary Clinton And Lois Lerner Smoked Pot?

in Culture/Politics by

The slogan was “drain the swamp.” The movement was to remove career politicians and change the face of politics forever. Washington D.C. is a place where politicians go to be exempt from legal and social standards that most regular citizens have to deal with. These people are celebrities who rarely lose elections and almost never face consequences. When candidate Donald Trump became President-Elect Donald Trump, a new day was coming. When President-Elect Donald Trump officially became President of the United States, a new day was supposed to have arrived. At least, that is what the hype machine told us would occur.…

How Should SCOTUS Rule On The Cake Baking Case?

in Philosophy/Politics by

The Supreme Court is set to tackle a case involving cake bakers refusing to make a custom cake for a gay wedding. At hand is the question of whether the cake bakers should be forced to service the gay couple? To many casual observers, it appears to be a clear case of discrimination. Should discrimination be legal? The implications of the case run much deeper than simply being forced to bake a cake for a marriage one may fundamentally disagree with. It’s a question of personal principles and morals. If one does not agree with homosexuality, should they be servicing…

Ben Shapiro Schools Berkeley Student On Abortion And The Sanctity Of Life

Ben Shapiro’s appearance at Berkeley was met with a lot of protest by unruly and intolerant opponents of his beliefs. While things got out of control on the outside, inside he was fielding questions and having a good exchange of ideas with students. Conservative and liberal college students alike turned out to an event that attracted a great deal of attention nationally. At the event, Shapiro held a question and answer session with students. For many students, this would be an opportunity to respectfully address a major conservative figure and hit him hard with questions. Of all the controversial topics…

Climate Change Alarmists Put Politics Before People During Hurricane Disasters

in Politics by

Tragedies and disasters are difficult topics for discussion. As they happen, people are displaced and it can even result in the loss of life. Both natural and man-made instances can be troubling for society to address. When do we address the situation and when do we discuss prevention in the future? The recent string of hurricanes is no change. Hurricane Harvey in Texas and now Hurricane Irma in Florida have renewed the climate change debate. With Hurricane Jose touching down across the east coast, this will only intensify. If there is indeed an issue regarding climate change, a scientific debate…

The Neoconservatives Have Declared War On The Realists

In recent years, I’ve increasingly suspected that when it comes to foreign policy, the realists offer some of the most sane observations. These suspicions were confirmed earlier this year when after the election of Donald Trump, John Mearsheimer, one of modern realism’s current standard bearers, wrote in The National Interest that Trump should “adopt a realist foreign policy” and outlines a far better foreign policy agenda that what we’ve seen coming from Washington.

UPDATE: Terrorists Threaten Conservative Whistleblower Removed From His School For Exposing DACA Recipient

Last week, a conservative student from Transylvania University (TU) re-posted a social media comment from a DACA recipient. In her initial post, the illegal immigrant boasted that she was “undocumented, unapologetic and unafraid” of her status in a post on her Facebook. The brave whistleblower shared the post to conservative groups within social media, and the firestorm began from there. Trump-hating illegal immigrant Paola Garcia went from being “undocumented, unapologetic and unafraid” to being a whining, crying, pathetic victim in a flash. She posted a groveling video on Youtube begging for assistance, demanding that hordes of pro-illegal leftists attack the…

What Cultural Marxists Would Say About Looting

Here was one of those, “Who are you going to believe, me or your own lyin’ eyes?” moments. Messrs. Carlson and Bongino were watching an embarrassingly uniform group of outlaws in action. Mr. Carlson even went on to quip that the looting landscape comprised, not of mothers in search of diapers and infant…

How Hillary Clinton’s Vanity Will Thwart The Democratic Party’s Rebuilding Process

It’s been a rough year for Democrats. Last year ended in a manner that how no one within the party saw coming. For months, we all heard about how former First Lady Hillary Clinton was going to run away with the election, and Democrats were set up for a big election day. The extent to which polls built up the Clinton campaign was extraordinary, and the Democratic machine leaned heavily on them. But it all fell apart, and here we are with President Donald Trump instead of President Hillary Clinton. Democrats faced soul searching similar to Republicans after Mitt Romney…

CFPB’s Unconstitutional Assault On Private Business Harms Consumers

in Economics/Politics by

Under the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s (CFPB) new rule, private companies would be banned from fully utilizing mandatory arbitration clauses. Pertaining mainly to financial products such as credit cards and bank accounts, these clauses currently prevent consumers from joining together in class action lawsuits to sue their banks. While the rule wouldn’t ban these clauses from company contracts entirely, it would prevent them from being used to stop group action. Aside from representing a blatant government intrusion in private businesses, this could seem like a good thing at face value. Consumers would be free to utilize further legal options, however,…

It was a popular rallying call for his support base and one that was a solid political marketing gimmick. But would he follow through on draining the swamp?

With Afghanistan Troop Surge, President Trump Becomes Bush’s Fifth Term

in Politics/World by

When George W. Bush first ran for President, he did so on a platform of non-interventionism. He spoke against the interventionist tendencies of Bill Clinton and the idea that we should go around the world telling people how to live their lives. Everything changed 16 years ago on this very date. The horrific terrorist attacks against our country led to military action in Afghanistan to avenge the victims. Avenging the fallen quickly turned into imperialism. What was said to be a targeted mission to strike back at terrorists soon became an endless occupation. America’s longest war has cost taxpayers billions…

Any casual observer of the news knows how horrific and nasty things are getting down south. Just after Hurricane Harvey slammed Texas, Hurricane Irma is setting its sights on Florida. Just as the situation in Texas, Florida is not faring well at all. As the rest of the country watches in sadness and horror of what people in these areas are experiencing, proposals for solutions are steadily coming in. As is customary with any tragedy, the federal government is offering its own solutions and Congress has to be involved. Naturally, most human beings want to help. This is also true…

Rep. Amash Slams President Trump For Siding With Democrats On Spending

President Donald Trump has shaken up standard political rules in Washington D.C. He doesn’t pull any punches and speaks his mind without politically correct polish. For this, some on the right have praised him for not playing by the rules of the mainstream. While his mouth and demeanor may not play by the rules, his policies in a number of ways have fallen short of any substantial gains for liberty. More recently, he has once again shown his lack of seriousness in draining the swamp. Instead of tackling the issues Washington D.C. has, he’s grown more connected. Now he’s cutting…

Why final?  Because the Left seems to have exhausted all of its ammunition, and they have nothing left.

So far, though, Texas appears to have taken the biggest step with new legislation that “requires local law enforcement agents to honor requests by federal immigration agents to detain jailed immigrants suspected of being in the country without proper documentation.

Sen. Rand Paul Calls For An End To The Longest War In American History

For well over a decade and a half, the United States military has occupied the Middle Eastern country of Afghanistan. It began in the aftermath of the unprecedented terrorist attacks of Sept. 11th, 2001. With terrorists bringing down the Twin Towers and striking the Pentagon, then-President George W. Bush sought to strike back. But what started as an invasion for the purpose of vengeance has evolved into an endless occupation without realistic goals. Our strike against terrorists to ensure these attacks would never happen again changed into a rebuilding effort, one dedicated to forcing democracy on an undemocratic region and…

Lincoln Or Lee? What Would Hitler Say?

While the Argument From Hitler is seldom a good one, Ms. Baldwin’s response was way worse. Were she an honest purveyor of news and knowledge; anchor-activist Baldwin would have sought the facts. Instead, she pulled faces, so the viewer…
