Marsha Blackburn Announces U.S. Senate Run In Tennessee

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… Keep Reading

Anti-Establishment Right Makes Comeback Within Trump Administration

The ‘campaign Donald Trump’ is set to return in the coming weeks and months, with extensive reports of major staffing reshuffles in Trump world favoring operatives associated with the grassroots right that spearheaded the historic victory last year. This follows an evident shift to the right on policy emanating from the Trump administration, including Trump hammering NATO leaders on their failure to adhere to the terms of the alliance, siding with the Freedom Caucus against Paul Ryan on the border tax, and unveiling an impressive, conservative budget plan. A report by Axios suggests White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon will be heading a new “war… Keep Reading

Trump: “Bannon’s More Of a Libertarian Than Anything Else”

Despite recent reports that White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon had been sidelined within the administration, it appears he may be winning back the President’s favor. In an interview with Bloomberg, Trump defended Bannon, describing him as a “very decent guy who feels very strongly about the country” and had received a “bad rap” from the media. Trump also disputed the media’s portrayal of Bannon as an ‘alt-right’ figure, stating that he sees Bannon as “alt-left”, on the basis that “Bannon’s more of a libertarian than anything else.” Keep Reading

Cruz Defends Freedom Caucus, Attacks Liberal Elements In White House

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) has condemned progressive figures within the White House who have been agitating against the fiscally conservative Freedom Caucus. In a Tuesday panel covered by the Texas Tribune, Cruz defended the Freedom Caucus, stating, “I will say those voices in the White House that are trying to get the White House to unload on conservatives, to unload on the Freedom Caucus, are doing the bidding of the left, of Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer, and profoundly damaging our prospects of success.” When a reporter asked him to elaborate on who specifically he was referring to, Cruz said, “whoever is encouraging the White House to… Keep Reading

Libertarian Budget Director Mick Mulvaney Rising Star In Trump Administration

Budget Director Mick Mulvaney is “on the rise” within the White House, according to a report by Politico on Tuesday. “When thinking about up and comers in the administration, think less about Gary Cohn, a New York City Democrat, and more about Mulvaney.” Recent reports that Gary Cohn, the former President of Goldman Sachs, was gaining clout in the White House, concerned many conservatives. Cohn, who is close to Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner, has had a tenuous relationship with former Breitbart chairman Steve Bannon, who is rumored to have been sidelined in recent weeks. Cohn is widely regarded as a centrist establishment figure,… Keep Reading

Trump Voters: Stop Syria Strikes, Put America First

Following President Trump’s airstrike in Syria, where over 50 cruise missiles were launched at a Syrian airbase in response to a chemical attack, something remarkable happened: Trump’s “America First” base revolted. First, #SyriaHoax started trending on Twitter, which called into question whether Assad’s government in Syria was responsible for the gas attack – many believed that it was a false flag attack by either Turkey, Saudi Arabia, or CIA-backed rebels meant to draw the U.S. into war, similar to the false-flag chemical attack in 2013. As Ron Paul said, “does anyone believe that on the eve of peace talks, just… Keep Reading

Steve Bannon Reportedly Opposed Syrian Airstrike

The tension and conflict within the White House has been well-documented since President Donald Trump took office a few months ago. Various groups and spheres of influence have sought to gain the attention of the President, with power struggles resulting in an internal mess for the Trump administration. It largely comes down to two groups: the more politically mainstream types like Jared Kushner and the America First nationalists such as Steve Bannon. These conflicts have been magnified by Thursday’s missile strike in Syria, where President Trump ordered an air base be targeted for attack. While the America First grassroots have largely stood against the… Keep Reading

Keep Calling Your Opponents “Racists” And You Will Keep Losing!

Just moments before I proceeded to write this article, a colleague of mine sent me a link to the Facebook wall of Tim Wise, a white self-avowed “anti-racist.”  I will not bother relaying Wise’s tirade of a post.  Rather, it is the article to which he links that is of interest. The latest edition of The Atlantic refers to the National Policy Institute (NPI), a small think tank that met in Washington D.C. this past weekend for its annual conference.  NPI describes itself as “an independent organization dedicated to the heritage, identity, and future of people of European descent in… Keep Reading
