President Trump Tears Into James Clapper For Questioning His Fitness For Office

President Donald Trump went after James Clapper on Twitter after the former Director of National Intelligence questioned his fitness for office during a CNN interview, according to Business Insider. Clapper appeared on CNN the same night Trump held a campaign-style rally in Phoenix, calling Trump’s speech “downright scary and disturbing.” He also cast doubt on Trump’s ability to serve as head of the executive branch.

Virginia Man Sues Republican Party Over ObamaCare Repeal Failure

A disappointed Republican donor in Virginia has filed a lawsuit against the national and state Republican Parties for failing to repeal ObamaCare, according to The Hill. The retired attorney, Bob Heghmann, filed the suit in U.S. District Court on Thursday, alleging that the GOP raised millions of dollars in donations despite having knowledge that the party would not be able to repeal ObamaCare. In the suit, he claimed the Republican Party “has been engaged in a pattern of racketeering which involves massive fraud perpetrated on Republican voters and contributors as well as some Independents and Democrats.” Keep Reading

Election Debates? Why Bother.

Another presidential debate? Honestly, at this point, why bother? Don’t get me wrong, I’m as political as they come. I eat it up as much as the next politico, hang on every word, read between the lines, and debate the finer points with my fellow nerds for weeks. I have no lack of interest in watching two mediocre communicators interrupt each other and try to make each other appear more ridiculous than themselves. What I’m saying is, why bother calling it a debate? Remember the days when presidential debates were about substantive public policy issues? Maybe… Remember when the presidential… Keep Reading

Career Politicians – President Trump Says “You’re Fired!”

Congressional term limits have been a topic of conversation for decades in political circles.  Should members of Congress only be allowed to serve a certain number of terms?  Are career politicians a bad thing or is consistency good?  Well, the subject was once again thrust into the limelight when Presidential Candidate Donald Trump announced on Tuesday at a campaign rally in Colorado his plans to push for a Constitutional amendment imposing Congressional term limits.  Just as he would do in his ever so popular television series The Apprentice, Trump would like to look across the boardroom table at Congress, stick out… Keep Reading

Regardless Of The Outcome, Political Carnage Is Guaranteed After The Election

We are only a few weeks away from the election. Although everyone and their mother say (as always) that this is the most important election of our lifetime, I’m not all that concerned about the outcome. Although Trump would likely be much less horrific President than Hillary, federal-level politics are screwed regardless of the outcome of this preposterous little popularity contest. All I care about is the show, and that the spectacle from the circus is causing serious damage to the political system at large. During this particular cycle, I have not been disappointed. “The Donald” has kicked the madness… Keep Reading

About a White House Built By Slaves

“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… Keep Reading

Johnson-Weld Town Hall Disappoints Liberty Conservatives

Did the CNN Libertarian town hall capture the hearts and minds of disenfranchised liberty conservatives? For this conservatarian, who watched the town hall from start to finish, I would say a definite no. I still feel there is no candidate running for president that represents my views enough for me to vote for them. I have been very hopeful and optimistic with regards to the Johnson-Weld ticket. They appeal to libertarians and conservatives, I’ve been told. They are both former Republicans, they have executive experience, they can be the answer for liberty conservatives who will not vote for Trump of Hillary. But Johnson-Weld… Keep Reading

Hillary Clinton: The Undemocratic Nominee

Everyone’s suspicions were confirmed when it was revealed last week that the Democratic National Committee (DNC) had planned on a Hillary Clinton nomination before a single ballot was cast.  Through various leaked documents stretching back to before the voting actually began, we received a first hand look last week at the inner workings of the DNC and their love affair with electing another Clinton.  As it turns out, poor Bernie Sanders never stood a chance, and Democrats everywhere have been made to look like fools for believing their vote actually mattered in this rigged party nomination. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, chairwoman… Keep Reading

Why I’m Voting – Despite Our Options

Look, I know it just as much as the next person – our options for President this year are horrible (and that is putting it nicely).  We have a power-hungry career politician who is under investigation with the FBI, a mediocre business man who loves spray tanning just a bit too much, and then there is Gary Johnson.  The options are rough, there is no disputing it – so bad in fact, that I have heard many family and friends simply saying I’m just not going to vote, what’s the point?  Or if I vote, I’ll write in Mickey Mouse… Keep Reading

From Irrelevance To Infamy: How The Libertarian Party Sold Its Soul For The GOP’s Leftovers

It is sad to see how despair can war an individual’s mind, and in spite of professing to be logical and rational, libertarians are not immune to this effect. In the aftermath of the Libertarian Party National Convention, we are seeing the tragic consequences of desperation manifest themselves throughout the greater liberty movement. The libertarian brand is now being besmirched and tarnished on a grand scale like never before because the Libertarian Party happily rolled out the red carpet for infiltrators to take over. Two lackluster, left-leaning Republican governors who were unable to maintain relevance in their own party 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

The Libertarian Party Blew It For Converts

Oh, Libertarian Party… You could have had me. You were this close! I am the demographic you are trying to reach out to: disenfranchised with the Republican Party presidential nominee; a lover of liberty not of political parties; someone searching for a new place to call home that represents the ideas I hold dear to my heart. I was optimistically hopeful. I spent my entire day tuned into the Libertarian Party convention hoping to see the legitimacy that I was yearning for. https://twitter.com/kayteemoyer/status/736989310520569856 Would this be my new place to put my trust? Behind lovers of liberty like myself who… Keep Reading

Are You #ManEnough4Hillary ?

With all the absurdity and pandering this election cycle, it’s hard to tell if campaigns are being serious or it’s just a troll on the internet. A new Hillary Clinton “campaign” photo has been gaining traction on twitter today: #ManEnough4Hillary? I thought the Left despised masculinity? Way to emasculate male voters… #ImNotWithHer pic.twitter.com/bm3zCsePFO — Gabriella Hoffman (@Gabby_Hoffman) May 26, 2016 The hunky lumberjack caught the eye of Twitter with the quote “I am man enough to vote for a woman… are you?” and the hashtag #ManEnough4Hillary. This has to be someone trolling…right? Or is Hillary Clinton’s campaign that out of touch.… Keep Reading

The GOP’s Rainbow Connection Just Won’t Work

It’s a hunch I have, a feeling from growing up in a deep blue urban area which has seen a parade of different majority-minorities dominate the area, that the GOP’s attempt to “diversify” by running candidates of color just might not do what they want it to do.  As a child, it was a  deep blue and liberal professional lower middle class Jewish neighborhood. Our teachers lived in the same neighborhood as we did back in elementary school. There were also the Catholic kids (we didn’t know them because they went to Catholic school) who were from blue collar union… Keep Reading
