About a White House Built By Slaves

in Culture/Politics by

“I wake up every morning in a house built by slaves,” Michelle Obama declared at the 2016 Democratic National Convention. The ensuing uproar neatly comprised of censure from the right and adulation from the left, thus demonstrating the deep ideological divide that defines our present politics. Though the speech on Tuesday received the most media attention, it does not represent the first instance in which Obama cited the White House’s slave legacy. The line made an appearance in her commencement address at New York’s City College in June, and her husband also made note of the same in March 2015…

Hate Speech: The Best Policy Is No Policy

in Politics by

Earlier this summer, Spanish Cardinal Antonio Cañizares, archbishop of Valencia, was put under government investigation because of a controversial homily he gave at the Catholic University of Valencia. During the homily, Cañizares criticized “radical feminism” and “gender ideology,” which upset the Spanish feminist organization Lambda LGBT, pushing them to file a criminal complaint with the Valencian authorities against Cañizares for “inciting discrimination and hatred.” Fortunately, the Spanish authorities found no reason to prosecute Cañizares, but Lambda LGBT’s attempt to use the authority of the state to silence opposing views is unsettling. Unfortunately, restrictions to free speech for the purpose of…

You Probably Don’t Understand Gary Johnson’s Position On Abortion

in Philosophy/Politics by

Throughout his campaign for President of the United States, Libertarian Party candidate Gary Johnson has been attacked by the right for being pro-choice. Many see Johnson as no better than Hillary Clinton on the issue of abortion. After all, Johnson says in nearly every interview that being libertarian means supporting a woman’s right to choose. However, a more in-depth analysis of his public statements about abortion both during this campaign and in the past make it fairly clear that those who dismiss Johnson with a pro-choice rubber stamp simply don’t understand his stance. First off, Johnson has made it clear…

Don’t Be Manipulated By The “Divide & Rule” Strategy

in Culture/Philosophy/Politics by

It’s a tactic that goes back to the dawn of civilization.  The ruling class of a particular area effectively gains control over the dissemination of information.  They then use this control to instigate and perpetuate conflict between various groups under their rule.  The general population (the ruled), having been educated in schools controlled by their ruling class, largely fails to recognize this propaganda.  They fall under the spell of believing that the source of their oppression stems from other groups rather than from the ruling class itself. This tactic is as strong today as ever.  The ruling class benefits immensely…

Libertarians Go All In On “electability”, Lose Big

in Politics by

Anyone who participated in the Libertarian Party’s 2016 presidential primary had to answer the three following internal questions: “which candidate best reflects my values, which candidate could actually succeed electorally, and which of those two answers is more important when I cast my vote?” The answer to the first question varies. Given the fact that the Libertarian Party is made up of everyone from anarcho-capitalists to disaffected moderate Democrats to hundreds of ideological groups in between, it should be no surprise that the final candidates for the presidential nomination included a pro-life media entrepreneur, a software pioneer advocating the end…

Hillary Clinton Deserves To Lose The General Election

in Politics by

A lot has been said about the upcoming presidential general election, which involves the clashing of two widely unpopular major party candidates. A lot has been made of the issues surrounding Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, as the fair and balanced mainstream media devotes an unfair and biased amount of attention to his words instead of Hillary Clinton’s actions. Speaking of the former Secretary of State’s actions, while the media has not generally kept the heat on, people are hesitant to trust her with the nuclear codes or any sensitive data at all. There are two different storylines regarding how…

Did Hillary Clinton Admit That She Lied About E-mail Contents?

in Politics by

The ongoing e-mail saga involving Hillary Clinton has been a core issue in this election cycle. Republicans have utilized a political opportunity to go after the leading Democrat who eventually would secure the nomination, while Democrats have pointed out just that: it’s all politics. The problem is, no matter how much the issue is politicized, the issue is certainly relevant and absolutely critical. National security has never been more critical than it is now and with the rising threat of ISIS and other global menaces, we need to be prepared to combat it. If classified intelligence is being sent on unsecured, private…

Do Everyday Hillary Clinton Supporters Even Really Exist?

in Politics by

The general election is finally locked in.  The Republican Party has nominated businessman Donald Trump and the Democrats joined the Associated Press in nominating Hillary Clinton to complete the uninspiring two-party offerings for President. The Libertarian Party is running Gary Johnson, who is consistently polling between 7 and 13% while Jill Stein tries to draw disillusioned supporters of Senator Bernie Sanders to the Green Party. While the two-party duopoly is showing fatigue, the two third party candidates in Johnson and Stein are enjoying increased media and mainstream attention. Republicans are uniting around Donald Trump and the reluctance factor seems to…

Donald Trump Violating Your Safe Space Is Not a Treasonous Act

in Politics by

If there’s one thing that Republican nominee Donald Trump has perfected this election it’s the art of offending just about everyone. Democrats predictably loathe him and Republicans are in an increasingly uncomfortable position. Both of these facts are true because of the fine line between political incorrectness and going too far that Trump continuously walks. Only since Trump has risen to prominence and ultimately locked down the nomination has he grown worse. Everyone’s safe space is in great danger right now. The threat of Donald Trump saying things is serious. In a recent press conference discussing national security, Trump suggested…

The New American Royalty

in Politics by

President John Adams once said that the United States was “a government of laws, not men.” The Founders understood that the only justification for the unavoidable disparities in wealth, talent, and position in society was the equal application of the law. This July, many conservatives and libertarians lamented the supposed death of the rule of law with the decision of the FBI not to recommend charges against Hillary Clinton. The truth of the matter is that the rule of law has been under attack in this country for almost 50 years. The historical record is clear. When elites and their…

Bernie Sanders May Have Sold Out; But His Supporters Will Not

in Politics by

Bernie Sanders may be calling for unity within the Democratic Party, but that doesn’t mean that his supporters will oblige. Yesterday, I spent the day live streaming the Bernie Sanders demonstrations outside of the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. It took mere moments around these activists to realize that these revolutionaries were not planning to roll over and support the Democratic nominee. I interacted with hundreds of Bernie Sanders supporters throughout the day. Activists and delegates alike were adamant about one thing: their voices were being suppressed and they were tired of taking it lying down. Demonstrators felt betrayed and used…

Establishment Democrats Attempt To Use Russia To Distract From Wikileaks Leak

in Politics/World by

The Democratic National Committee has had a rough year. In what was supposed to be a smooth coronation year for former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the road has instead been rocky and rough. Independent United States Senator Bernie Sanders instead ruined the coronation on parade by putting up a strong grassroots push. Despite longstanding suspicions that there was something foul afoot, the idea that the DNC under Debbie Wasserman Schultz was swaying the primary in a certain direction remained a mere conspiracy theory. Enter WikiLeaks. The famous transparency website threw a curveball when it dumped almost twenty thousand e-mails between…

Sen. Tim Kaine: The Left’s Worst Nightmare?

in Politics by

On Friday, Democratic Presidential nominee Hillary Clinton named Senator Tim Kaine of Virginia her running mate for the 2016 election. This pick did not come as a surprise to political pundits, as the Senator was widely viewed a safe pick for the scandal-plagued candidate. Many people across the country may not know much about the Senator, however, because he is so safe. Over the coming months there will no doubt be many articles, op-eds, and the like telling us how great or how horrible he is, depending on the source. We already know quite a bit about Sen. Kaine, however,…

Politics Is Personal: How Then Should a Christian Vote?

in Culture/Philosophy by

I have learned from my years as a GOP campaign manager and county chairman that people indeed are willing to vote for someone that they loathe in proportion to the personal negative impact of the policies pursued by the other side. Tip O’Neill said famously that all politics is local. I would add that all politics is personal. As a case in point, I remember when I worked as a campaign manager for state legislative races in Silicon Valley. Since I worked for Republicans in a 2 to 1 Democrat majority area, my candidates for partisan offices always lost. They…

Why Donald Trump Just Won The Presidency

in Politics by

For months, the storyline among moderate and mainstream Republicans as well as the media across the nation is that Donald Trump is dangerous. If he ever were allowed to become the Republican Party nominee, let alone President of the United States, the country would be set on a dangerous course. He speaks firm and loud, unafraid to hurl barbs and take down his opponents with offensive language. His principles at times can be undefined and principles often questionable. The unpredictability of a possible Trump Administration leaves a number of people concerned about the future of America. But Donald Trump is…

Demanding Change And Bending History

in Politics by

You cannot ask to join something older, larger, and farther reaching than yourself, and then declare it is solely yours by demanding it be taken away from someone else. You cannot demand that something that has shaped entire arcs of history conform to your view and change into something it is not, cannot be, nor has ever been. Imperfect action is better than perfect procrastination, and positive change mostly comes very slowly, through incremental changes, one inch at a time. It is not wrong that your demands have not been met, that your opinions have not been agreed with, that your…

Of Course The Media Was Biased: The RNC Wasn’t a Disaster

in Politics by

Words I would use to describe the Republican National Convention held in Cleveland this past week: magical, historical, energetic, patriotic, peaceful. I was literally buzzing with excitement after the first night of the convention. Talk about an impactful experience — and it was only day one! Thousands of patriotic Americans converged on Cleveland to show their support for the Republican nominee. Between the young kids handing out free water to police on the streets, to the jovial laughs ringing through the convention halls, the air was light and the energy positive. I watched Americans of all socio-economic backgrounds embrace each…

The United States Has A History Of Supporting Coups In Turkey: Why Was This Time Different?

in World by

As reports of the attempted military coup in Turkey began to circulate in the media, President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry were quick to reject the “anti democratic methods” of military leaders who sought to overthrow Turkish President Recep Erdogan, earning the praise of globalists who also lambasted previous American administrations for supporting other military coups since modern Turkey was founded. Nick Danforth, a Senior Analyst in the Bipartisan Policy Center’s National Security Program, heaped praised on Secretary of State John Kerry’s call for “stability and peace and continuity within Turkey” as news of the attempted coup…

Lessons Learned: What The Liberty Minded Can Take Away From Trump’s Triumph

in Politics by

I have noticed a troubling trend amongst liberty conservatives that is growing lately. Instead of forging alliances with the anti-establishment Republican grassroots, they are pouting, whining, doing the bidding of the Bill Kristol’s of the world, abandoning ship, taking their ball and going home. They are proving all the worst stereotypes about the liberty minded: that we are marginal, petty, flaky, unreliable, melodramatic and undeserving to enjoy the blessings of freedom. Although events in the last year have killed morale and bruised many of our egos, there is a silver lining. The Trump phenomenon has harmed our enemies more than…

WATCH: Did Hillary Clinton Have a Seizure On Camera?

in Politics by

A newly surfaced video of Hillary Clinton shows the Secretary of State acting strangely while on the campaign trail. Some are speculating that Clinton may have had a seizure on camera. The video, which was recorded in June but only surfaced in recent days, shows Clinton speaking with the media about Elizabeth Warren as a possible vice presidential pick. While answering questions, Clinton appears startled and quickly jolts her head back and bobbles it seemingly uncontrollably. She laughs, then bobbles her head again. The clip ends with a wide-eyed Clinton joking about her chai tea. Did Hillary Clinton have a seizure…

Cruz And His Rockefeller Cow Palace Moment

in Politics by

Cruz has his hardcore supporters. They will march in lockstep with him over the edge and into that special hell pit reserved for Republicans who are more willing to hand the Supreme Court to Hillary Clinton than to stomach a showman populist. The real question is how much appeal he retains beyond his core supporters. When Rockefeller refused to endorse Goldwater in 1964, he still received a friendly welcome in our nation’s more prestigious country clubs, but he had no more traction outside of his core base of support. I am inclined to think that the same will be true…

Have Americans Learned Anything About Party Establishments Yet?

in Culture/Philosophy/Politics by

It’s amazing that for well over a century, there has never been a new major political party and no ashes for any new movement to rise from. Republicans and Democrats hold steady through the worst of anything, with the help of government interference and a complacent mainstream media. Over the years, Democrats have put Japanese Americans in Internment Camps and Republicans have expanded the surveillance state, but Americans still haven’t seriously entertained the thought of dumping either party. Our politics become increasingly bizarre when you consider that most Americans will admit they believe all or most politicians are corrupt, complain…

America First! Vs. The Establishment

in Politics by

I am not so sure that the Republican Party is the “Trump Party.” Frankly, I hope that you are right, and that I am wrong, and that the GOP really has adopted the economic and political worldview identified as “America First.” Nevertheless, apart from Trump, a handful of GOP Senators (i.e. Alabama Senator Sessions), and a handful of GOP Congressmen, the vast majority of GOP elected officials have not deviated too far from the Ronald Reagan agenda. It is a mistake to think that the Freedom Caucus in the House of Representatives reflects an “America First” agenda. Yes, these Tea…

The NBA Flexes Rights That Are Denied To Others

in Culture/Economics/Politics by

In response to North Carolina’s new law regarding bathroom usage, the NBA announced that they will be removing their 2017 All-Star Game from Charlotte.  Fine, good for them.  If they feel that the law is bigoted in nature, or unfair to certain groups of people, the NBA is perfectly within their rights to protest and take action to dissociate themselves with the state and their law. There has been a lot of commentary on sports media pertaining to this decision.  One particularly insightful take on the situation went something like this: The commentator was lauding the NBA’s decision, and went…

Who Inherits The Crown?

in Culture/Politics by

I do not believe that Trump has any interest in maintaining a political coalition if he loses in November. He is not a career political activist concerned about building a movement that may survive his retirement. I saw much the same phenomenon with Ross Perot after he lost in 1992. He had put a lot of his own money in converting the United We Stand grassroots operation (predecessor of the Tea Party in many ways) into a political party (Reform Party), but he largely abandoned the party once it became clear he would never be President. The Reform Party limped…

Donald Trump’s Disturbing Promise To America

in Politics by

Donald Trump has formally accepted the Republican nomination after the #NeverTrump failed to stop him. While it was widely accepted and celebrated at the National Convention, there are a number of Republican holdouts. Senator Ted Cruz, the man who came closest to defeating Trump, has opted not to endorse Trump. Former Governors Jeb Bush and Mitt Romney have openly stated they won’t support Trump, among others.   A lot of this is due to Trump’s demeanor. His endorsement of authoritarian principles is nothing new for Republicans, but the fact he openly says mean things is uncomfortable for many moderate Republicans.…

Why Ted Cruz’s Call To “vote Your Conscience” Was The Right Decision

in Philosophy/Politics by

The conservative world watched in the time leading up to Senator Ted Cruz’s speech at the Republican National Convention. Would the former primary opponent of Republican nominee Donald Trump finally issue an endorsement? Would he dodge the issue and refuse an endorsement? Would he even go as far as take a Third Eye Blind approach and just lay it all on the table in front of those who would oppose him? The result was Senator Cruz giving his primetime speech and exiting the stage without offering an endorsement of Trump. The crowd at the Republican National Committee responded with loud…

An Honest Discussion Of Race, Can We Handle It?

in Culture/Philosophy/Politics by

“What a Truly Honest Discussion of Race Would Look Like” and which Obama and the Left would like to avoid On Thursday, July 14, Barack Obama held a nationally televised “town hall” meeting on American race relations—and, unsurprisingly, punted on that “honest” discussion of race that he and his ilk accuse the rest of us of deferring. A truly honest discussion of race, you see, threatens the Racism-Industrial-Complex (RIC) or, alternately, Big Racism. A truly honest discussion of race would mention that for virtually every kind of crime, blacks are perpetrators in numbers wildly out of proportion to their number…

How Would Martin Luther King Jr. Feel About The Black Lives Matter Movement?

in Culture/Politics by

There’s been a spike in racial tension in recent weeks due to a number of shootings of innocent Americans. Despite the media portrayal and leftwing narrative, studies have shown there is no racial bias in the fatal shootings of citizens by police. The result has been widespread escalations in violence and racial tensions by ignorant activists, arrogant political leaders, and a reckless mainstream media. Above all, the Black Lives Matter that is feeding off of this tension is inherently racist by declaring that “all lives matter” is a racist concept. Since when is calling for equality a racist matter? The…

Incorrect Facts Regarding Race And Slavery

in Politics by

As was recently shown, the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement, with its central claim that police around the country are hunting and killing innocent black men, is a lie. Yet the BLM myth is enmeshed within a larger narrative, a narrative of eternal White Racism. And couched within this tale are distortions and outright crucially false ideas of slavery. In the interest of that “honest discussion” of race that the Eric Holders and Barack Obamas of the world claim to want, I submit considerations without which no such discussion can be had. One glaringly inconvenient truth that, odds are, few…

Why The Never Trump Movement Was Never Going To Win

in Politics by

The Republican primary, though essentially over for some time, is officially reaching its natural end. The Republican National Committee is doing everything within its power to come together around the nominee and ensure any uprising is crushed. This is not new, as it happened in 2012 when former Texas Congressman Ron Paul attempted his own uprising. This is how political parties operate. The #NeverTrump crowd made another stand, attempting to unbind the delegates. Like in 2012 with the Paul campaign and the liberty movement, the opposition was defeated on a voice vote that is essentially left up to the discretion of…

American Outrage Greater Over Copied Speech Lines Than The 9/11 Commission Report Revelations

All along this Republican presidential primary, there have been three basic types of Republicans. There are Republicans who supported Donald Trump for President of the United States, and then there were two types of those opposed. First, there were those consistent conservatives and libertarians who have always opposed the pro-big government philosophy and never have supported political bullies. Then the second type of anti-Trump people are those on the #NeverTrump bandwagon who have never before had a problem with the George W. Bush, Senator John McCain or Mitt Romney types. All of a sudden this election cycle, they’ve found a…
