REPORT: Steve Bannon Supported Syria Strike; Maintains Distance From Right-Wing Media

in News by

White House chief strategist Steve Bannon has been called a right-wing firebrand, a tea party favorite, and even a white nationalist for his role in creating the Trump presidency. However, Bannon’s true nature is shaping up to be much different than the hype if recent reports are to be believed. In a New York Magazine article, journalist Olivia Nuzzi gave a glimpse to a different side of Bannon than what is usually portrayed by the media. She portrays Bannon as a man who has expended very little of his political capital to get nationalist allies into key White House positions, and has grown distant to the right-wing media outlets seeking his guidance. “He has a lot of friends out on the internet who love him, but we are all still waiting for him to unleash the beast,” said Charles Johnson, editor-in-chief of GotNews.com. Another source close to the President has even disputed reports that Bannon pushed back against the controversial and unauthorized strikes in Syria against Bashir al-Assad. “He…

United Nations Appoints Islamic Dictatorship To Women’s Rights Commission

in News by

The United Nations (UN) is showing their commitment to the ongoing struggle for women’s rights throughout the world by including an Islamic dictatorship on their Commission on the Status of Women. They recently announced that Saudi Arabia would be added to the body. The UN had previously made the Saudi Arabian ambassador, Faisal bin Hassan Trad the head of a key human rights panel a couple years back. This outraged watchdog groups, but the UN was oblivious to those concerns and apparently considers Saudi Arabia to be a crucial vanguard for human rights for their organization. Saudi Arabia is an undemocratic Wahabbist kingdom whose leaders believe in a strict interpretation of the Koran. “Electing Saudi Arabia to protect women’s rights is like making an arsonist into the town fire chief,” said Hillel Neuer, executive director of UN Watch, in a public statement. “It’s absurd.” According to a Human Rights Watch report released in late 2015, women are not permitted on the streets of Saudi Arabia unless they are accompanied…

Rep. Steve King Threatens Trump With Lawsuit Over Amnesty Flip-Flop

in News by

President Trump is wavering on many key campaign promises, including his call to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program that permits illegal immigrants who have been in America since they were children to stay in the country without prosecution. This is not acceptable for Rep. Steve King (R-IA), who says that a lawsuit may be in order if Trump refuses to enforce immigration laws. “Is [Trump] going to force us to go back to court again?” King asked in an interview with the Daily Caller. King went on to say, “It is impossible to return the respect of the rule of law in regards with immigration.” King is dismayed with Trump’s reversal on DACA, and his anguish is shared by grassroots Trump supporters around the country. Trump’s lack of results on the immigration issue and reports of turmoil inside the White House have given his supporters cause for alarm. King is allied closely with Steve Bannon, White House Chief Strategist, who is seemingly in Trump’s dog…

If You Want To Make NATO Great Again, Kick Out Turkey

in Politics/World by

  President Trump insisted throughout the presidential campaign (and even after being elected) that NATO was “obsolete”, mainly focusing on the fact that many of our European allies don’t put forward the appropriate proportion of their GDP toward their defense budgets and on the claim that the transatlantic organization doesn’t do enough to combat terrorism (the latter a far less fair criticism than the former, especially given the fact that the only time the group has invoked its Article 5 mutual defense provision was to assist the United States in the wake of the September 11th attacks). President Trump recently abruptly reversed course, now saying that NATO was no longer obsolete. But Donald Trump actually was right about NATO obsolescence, although right for the wrong reasons. It’s not because we no longer need NATO as a bulwark against Russia (we do) and not because NATO is no longer useful in the age of international terrorism (it is), but it is “obsolete” because an increasingly authoritarian Turkey has become an…

Trump Rebukes Italian Prime Minister, Calls For No U.S. Intervention In Libya

in News by

Although Trump has already bombed Syria and is posturing aggressively on Iran and North Korea, recent comments indicate that he will be taking a less militarist stance on Libya. He announced at a press conference that he sees no further role for the United States regarding the African nation. “I do not see a (US) role in Libya,” Trump said during a joint press conference yesterday with Italian Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni. “I think the United States has right now enough roles,” Trump said. This came immediately after Gentiloni said that the United States’ role in Libya is “critical.” Trump snapped back to make it clear that the tragic circumstances in Libya are no longer the concern of his administration or the American people. President Obama’s intervention into Libya, backed by the North American Treaty Organization (NATO), turned the country into a haven for radical Islam after disposing secular dictator Muammar Gaddafi in 2011. Recent reports of slave markets being prevalent in the area have horrified the world, prompting…

Kushner Emerges As Powerful Criminal Justice Reform Advocate In White House

in News by

There are a number of incongruent ideologies jockeying for influence within the Trump White House. Trump’s son in law, Jared Kushner has emerged as one of the most powerful early on. Despite receiving a great deal of flak from conservatives and libertarians for his supposedly progressive outlook, there may be an issue where his influence on the White House can be appreciated: criminal justice reform. According to a New York Times report, Kushner is pushing for criminal justice reform on issues such as ending mandatory minimums. However, he is faced with resistance from Attorney General Jeff Sessions, a long-time drug warrior who favors harsh sentencing. Kushner’s agenda is possibly being undermined by Trump staffers who question his credentials, the report claims.

Trump’s EPA Chief: Time To Exit ‘Bad Deal’ Globalist Climate Agreement

in News by

The Trump administration is changing course from the policies of his predecessor in a number of stark ways, perhaps most drastically when it comes to climate change. President Trump boasts that America is once again open for business, and EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt’s dismay regarding the Paris climate agreement reflects those sentiments. “Paris is something that we need to really look at closely,” Pruitt said on a “Fox & Friends” broadcast. “It’s something we need to exit in my opinion… It’s a bad deal for America. It was an America second, third, or fourth kind of approach. China and India had no obligations under the agreement until 2030. We front-loaded all of our costs.”

Steve Bannon: McMaster Wants a ‘New Iraq War’ In Syria

in News by

The Trump administration is weighing different options regarding Syria at the present moment after a chemical weapons attack widely attributed to the Assad regime. The biggest chasm has developed between White House chief strategist Steve Bannon and National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster over whether or not to start a ground war in the region. According to a Bloomberg View report, McMaster is advocating a full-scale invasion of Syria, with 50,000 ground troops. Conservative journalist Mike Cernovich had previously warned that McMaster, in league with the disgraced former CIA Director David Petraeus, was pushing for sending as many as 150,000 conventional forces to Syria. Bannon believes that this would create a “new Iraq war” and has derided McMaster to his colleagues for his proposal.

Neocon Elliott Abrams To Trump: Remove Steve Bannon From White House!

The neoconservatives are once again emboldened after Trump’s military strike on Syria last week. Former George W. Bush advisor Elliott Abrams is offering some unsolicited advice for President Trump: Dump Steve Bannon as chief political strategist. “He’s not a good influence on the president,” Abrams said to a reporter during a Politico interview. He apparently smiled ear-to-ear while discussing the prospects of Bannon’s removal. Furthermore, he is a firm proponent of Jared Kushner’s increased influence in the White House. Kushner is Trump’s son-in-law and the head of the new White House Office of American Innovation.

Putin Shows Heroic Leadership As Trump Is Cucked By Neocons In Syria

in Politics/World by

Donald Trump faced the first true test of his Presidency this past week, and failed abysmally. After a chemical attack in Syria that was attributed without any real evidence to President Bashir al-Assad, Trump threw his relatively non-interventionist stance in the trash immediately to appease the neocons and other Washington D.C. swamp rats, launching airstrikes against the Syrian government. While Trump faltered, a truly masculine leader with big hands reacted like a professional. Vladimir Putin refused to budge to the neocon war machine and throw Assad under the bus at their behest. He refused to feed into the globalist propaganda narratives pushing the world toward conflict. He didn’t care that the western media was making him or Assad out to be bogeymen. Putin urged for restraint while Trump was rushing to war. He stood strong under the pressure while Trump whimpered. Putin told Israeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu that “it was unacceptable to make groundless accusations against anyone without conducting a detailed and unbiased investigation.”

Despite Missile Strikes, Trump Administration Claims Syrian Policy Is Unchanged

in News by

In the wake of President Trump’s missile strikes in Syria, many observers are alarmed over the possibility of the United States being involved in another full-blown war. However, the Trump Administration is indicating that this strike is more of an isolated incident than a substantiative change of policy. “I would not in any way attempt to extrapolate that to a change in our policy or posture relative to our military activities in Syria today. There has been no change in that status,” Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said. “I think it does demonstrate that President Trump is willing to act when governments and actors cross the line and cross the line on violating commitments they’ve made and cross the line in the most heinous of ways.”

Neocons Gloat After President Trump Bombs Syria To Weaken Assad Regime

Neoconservatives could not be happier after President Trump bombed Syria last night in a retaliatory measure against President Bashir Al-Assad for alleged chemical attacks that were released on video for the world to see. “This is the challenge of Bashar al-Assad and then we’ve also got ISIS, so we’ve also got ISIS so we’ve got a long way to go,” Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) said to MSNBC. “But, the signal that was sent last night is a very, very important one.” McCain wasn’t the only neocon jubilant with the prospect of more war. His great friend and fellow militarist Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) was also delighted with Trump’s unauthorized and extrajudicial military strikes. “Unlike the previous administration, President Trump confronted a pivotal moment in Syria and took action. For that, he deserves the support of the American people,” Graham said in a press release. He went on to champion further measures that would decimate the Assad regime, and create a situation similar to what occurred after American intervention in…

President Trump Considering Possibility Of War Against Syria After Chemical Attack

Recent reports of a chemical attack that was allegedly perpetrated by Syrian President Bashir Al-Assad onto his own people has President Trump reconsidering his stance of neutrality in the Syrian civil war. He is even considering direct military action, a CNN report claims. “It crossed a lot of lines for me,” Trump said in a press conference regarding the recent chemical attack in Syria. “When you kill innocent children, innocent babies, babies, little babies, with a chemical gas that is so lethal – people were shocked to hear what gas it was. That crosses many, many lines, beyond a red line, many, many lines.”

Sen. Rand Paul Talks Health Care Compromise After Golf Outing With Trump

After completing a widely publicized golf outing with President Trump, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) is moderating his stance regarding the full repeal of Obamacare. Instead of demanding for subsidies to be fully repealed, Paul indicated that he would settle for a mere reduction in subsidies to make a passable bill. “I think the compromise could be keeping some of the underlying payments in Obamacare, some small percentage of them, in order to placate the people who want that, but not affirmatively putting it in the bill,” Paul said. “Conservatives want 100 percent repeal, let’s say moderates want 80 percent repeal. Let’s vote on 90 percent repeal and be done with it.”

Donald Trump Is No Conman

Since the beginning of his campaign to become President of the United States, Donald Trump has been accused of being a fraud. He is, according to the Left and the Never Trump movement, a conman. One of the most outlandish theories to date has been that he was deliberately self-destructing both himself and the Republican Party to help his old-crone crony, Hillary Clinton. For a time – a short time – I thought there might be something to the theory. I have since reformed myself and come to grips with reality. Not everyone is as smart as I am. The authenticity of his aspirations is unmistakable to the millions who voted for him, but the sincerity of his determination to Drain the Swamp and Make America Great Again is called into question every day by both common folk who vote for anyone with a D next to their name and the professional big mouths of the pundit/propaganda class.

Liberalism As a Blind Faith Religion

in Politics/Religion by
faith

In the book of Hebrews, chapter eleven verse one, the Bible defines faith as being the substance of hope in things unseen. Those of us who are skeptical of the claims found in supposedly holy texts know that this is only half correct; in addition to hope in things unseen, religious faith is the denial of that which can be seen. The evidence for a godless universe is abundant and has brought us to a day and age in which the concept of a supernatural creator may be dismissed with a quick reference to Occam’s infamous razor: The God Theory is no longer necessary to explain the origin of the universe and its innumerable contents. Religion may be useful to its adherents for a great many things – a moral foundation, community, etc – but as far as answering the biggest questions about our world and the cosmos, it’s been weighed and measured and found wanting. And yet, the blind faith in a personal supreme being persists. The point…

After Failing On Health Care, President Trump Transforms Into “John Kasich Republican”

in Politics by

The past week has not been encouraging for freedom lovers and liberty-minded individuals who hope to work with President Trump. Trump has effectively thrown the House Freedom Caucus under the bus after they refused to pass unpopular health care legislation. The American Health Care Act (AHCA) was the baby of House Speaker Paul Ryan. It was crafted in back rooms, saved most of the harmful anti-market provisions within Obamacare, and would have put the GOP on the hook for the impending disaster. Trump should be thanking the House Freedom Caucus for helping to torpedo this mess. Instead, Trump has waged war against them.

Who’s Afraid Of The Big Bad Trump?

in Politics by

We are approximately eighty days into the presidency of Donald J. Trump, and the American Republic still stands. The United States has yet to start World War III, the plan to build a wall on the U.S./Mexico border remains a pipe dream, and the Constitution and Bill of Rights are still intact. While many of President Trump’s actions as president have been controversial, some of the worst attempted abuses of the new administration’s power have been prevented by coordinate branches of the federal government. The very constitutional system of checks and balances decried by many on the Left (and some on the Right) as the anachronistic relic of a bygone era designed to impede progress, has worked to prevent the abuse of the power of the federal government, just as the Framers designed and intended over two hundred years ago.

Sen. McCain Fumes As Syrian President Receives Vote Of Confidence From Trump State Department

in News by

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has indicated that regime change is no longer the official policy regarding Syria, where embattled President Bashar Al-Assad is fighting a civil war against ISIS and other Islamist factions. This is a serious departure in policy from the Obama/Hillary/Neocon doctrine of nation-building and extreme militarism, and Sen. John McCain is far from pleased. Although the Trump Administration is boosting drone strikes in the Middle East and actually has boots on the ground in Syria, that is not enough to satisfy McCain’s longing for war. In addition to the Trump regime furthering America’s overseas presence, McCain demands aggressive belligerence toward the Syrian regime as well.

Not to be outdone by the President, this week Congress passed H.R. 998. This bill is called the SCRUB Act (Searching for and Cutting Regulations that are Unnecessarily Burdensome). This Act establishes a nine-member commission whose duty it is to hold hearings and find regulations that need to be removed.

Words Matter! (Human Lives Don’t)

in Culture/Politics by

It’s essentially become universally accepted that the political arena as of late has been steadily undergoing a transformation from a place of discussion and debate to one of battle. Throughout the duration of the past election season, the media never hesitated to remind viewers of just how divided the nation had become regarding the selection of the country’s new president. Inevitably, commentary of this sort would be accompanied by clips of each candidates’ inflammatory rhetoric, whether it was Donald Trump railing against illegal immigrants or Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders crusading against the evil corporations. And though there was occasional discussion about actual incidences of violence, much of the conversation would come to center less on actual actions and more on words and rhetoric. Eventually, a theme began to emerge: Words matter. Now taken at face value, there really is nothing wrong in pointing out the importance of language and how it may affect people. However, the mantra also hints at what has become a far more troubling political trend than divisiveness. And that is the…

Sally Yates Violated Ethical Standards And Must Be Disbarred

Sally Yates exact words were “as long as I am Attorney General, the Department of Justice will not present arguments in defense of the Executive Order …”. With these words, Sally Yates violated her duties to her client, the United States of America. One does not have to look very far to find that it is the duty of the Attorney General and the Justice Department to defend the United States of America. The Justice Department’s website states that one of the principle duties of the Attorney General is to “Perform or supervise the performance of other duties required by statute or Executive Order”. Sally Yates put her politics ahead of her client’s interest. This is an absolute no-no when it comes to lawyer’s ethics. As a…

The Privilege Of Protest

in History/Law/Politics by

Since Donald Trump won the presidential election in November, and even more so since the inauguration, certain individuals and groups have been in a state of panic. People have taken to the streets in protest.  Judging from the number and frequency of protests since President Trump’s inauguration, it would seem the very future of our republic, society, and most cherished rights are currently under constant threat. Yet, our lives and liberties have actually never been better. Material wealth, social progress, and peaceful conditions are necessary conditions of the privilege of protest. The privilege of protest requires material wealth. If you transported someone from the Middle Ages into the modern United States, they would probably think they had found a way to heaven itself. Gone are the days when a cut on your leg quickly resulted in disease and death. Gone are the days when traveling from one side of the continent to the other meant months or years of turmoil.

The Masses In Motion: Why Libertarian Populism Is The Way Forward

in Politics by

For students of political strategy, the 2016 presidential race was a remarkable and informative election. This is especially true for grassroots libertarians who want to learn how to build an electoral coalition capable of winning national elections. It shows why libertarian populism must be the way forward for activists interested in advancing the liberty movement. Donald Trump – or should I say President Trump – accomplished something incredible: he methodically took down sixteen of the Republican Party’s best candidates in the primaries and then annihilated Hillary Clinton in an electoral landslide, holding on to traditional red states while winning states like Michigan and Pennsylvania that establishment Republicans could never even dream of winning. What made his victory even more amazing was that Trump managed to win these traditionally deep blue states despite being viciously attacked around the clock by the mainstream media, Democratic Party, and neoconservatives (who de facto are the Republican establishment). Trump accomplished all of this while turning the traditional political strategy of beltway elites on its…

On Sunday, a white supremacist entered the Quebec City Islamic Cultural Centre and opened fire on a group of Muslims engaged in evening prayers. This comes just days after President Donald J.

Just like the Charleston church shooting, the perpetrator of which I will not mention by name, this heinous crime was motivated by bigotry, plain and simple. The Charleston shooter shot and killed nine black churchgoers inside Emanuel AME church in 2015.

And he did so by explaining that they were racists and rubes, too foolish and stuck in their ways to see the light. As a way to explain why some folks wouldn’t vote for him, Obama insulted millions of Americans. He explained that when the jobs left Pennsylvania and other blue collar manufacturing states, it made folks xenophobic.

Hands Off My Healthcare: Opposition To Obamacare, Explained.

Unless you’re Bill Belichick, you may have heard a thing or two about the impending repeal of The Affordable Care Act on Snapface or Instachat. Actually, you’ve probably heard quite a lot. From Esquire stating 30 million people lost their healthcare overnight, to countless pithy tweets and Facebook quotes about the evils of the Republicans for wanting to deny coverage to the American people. The problem is that this isn’t true. The Affordable Care Act has NOT been repealed. Nor have any provisions been dismantled. The infamous late-night vote you surely read about was to authorize congress to modify Obamacare’s funding down the line – setting the path for a repeal. Democrats attempted to attach various amendments, locking the republicans into keeping certain provisions during this process, which were shot down. That does not mean they won’t be kept. It means they didn’t lock themselves in before they had a chance to modify the bill. Not a single thing about Obamacare has been changed.

Desperate for ammunition, the Left has taken to hurling handfuls of excrement in lieu of journalistic integrity. Yesterday morning, at Mother Jones, Kevin Drum published a piece titled, “Why Do Republicans Hate Obamacare?” The article peaked early when he started it with a cursory list of suspect accomplishments credited to the law, and it went downhill from there as he tip-toed around a few of the most minor problems with the ACA while ignoring the vast majority of the most troubling ones. Kevin didn’t exactly lie, but he certainly didn’t tell us the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. By the time the article was over the poor guy had devolved into a foot-stamping simian, one whose hands were alternating between covering…

Relax, Hippies: Jeff Sessions As Attorney General Isn’t The End Of The World

in Culture/Economics/Politics by

The hypocritical liberals are sounding the alarms about Jeff Sessions being President Trump’s pick for Attorney General. Suddenly and conveniently, they care about civil liberties and the rule of law again now that they have lost political power. Nevertheless, they are blowing smoke and relying on ignorance to push their tired agenda. The George Soros-funded Drug Policy Alliance (DPA) is especially ham-fisted in their nauseating “analysis” of the appointment. Purportedly a nonpartisan group, their true colors were shown after they released a ridiculous screed filled with so much nonsense that looks as if it was drafted by John Podesta himself:

Sad Clown Schumer Takes a Stand

in Politics by

Newly anointed Senate Minority Leader, Charles “Chuck” Schumer, has had plenty of practice during his lengthy tenure in Washington, D.C. at picking his battles and these days he’s picked a big one. Of late, the senior senator from New York has engaged himself in a game of plagiarizing pages from the Republican playbook in his effort to lead the charge against our incoming President-elect, Donald Trump. For years, President Obama and his dwindling cadre of spineless yes men and women in our nation’s capital have whined to no end about the apparent GOP master plan of “just saying no” to the president’s radical leftist agenda. Now, with their wings clipped, the Democrats find themselves in a powerless position not unlike that of the Republicans in the early days of the Obama administration. Faced with few options to choose from when waging war against any and all perceived threats, Mr. Schumer has decided to just say yes to the “just say no” strategy. Throwing all pretense of principled obstructionism to…

The Trump Rally: Stocks Fly High As Confidence Surges

in Economics/News/Politics by

The election of President-elect Donald Trump last month has awakened, what some people are calling, the “animal spirits” of capitalism. Anyone with a 401k or money in the stock market could tell you that things are going very well at the moment. The election of President-elect Trump and conservative, pro-market Republican majorities in the House and Senate represents a turning of the page from eight years of growing tax burden, government spending, and red tape. The Trump Rally, as some pundits are calling it, has resulted in the Dow Jones Industrial Average jumping 1,600 points since 2016’s election day. Such a large jump — well up into the nineteen thousands — has many market watchers discussing the prospect of the Dow breaking 20,000 points. The result has been nearly two trillion dollars in wealth generated for the tens of millions of Americans with money in the stock market.

YAL Leader Promoted After Calling All Trump Supporters Racists

in Politics by

The unfortunate news came Tuesday that Ty Hicks, the Young Americans for Liberty (YAL) National Field Director who declared that all Trump supporters are racist, has been promoted to Executive Vice President of YAL. This news comes on the heels of the election of Donald Trump, who received support from a wide swath of youth activists from across the conservative and libertarian movements, some of whom are YAL activists. The anti establishment wave that swept through the nation this year has energized the right wing in a way that we haven’t seen in a very long time, a position that libertarians should be poised to capitalize on with a bold populist message. Unfortunately, this latest move sends a message that the YAL leadership does not share this vision of the future and is perhaps growing insensitive to the prospect of alienating wide swaths of the conservative movement. To understand how we got here, let’s briefly review the events of recent months.

Fake News: The Alibi Of Tyrants

in Politics by

A few days ago, Hillary Clinton gave a speech on Capitol Hill to pay homage to outgoing Senator Harry Reid. It should have been a happy occasion; Senator Reid’s tenure in congress has been a blight on our nation for decades, we should celebrate his departure from government. But instead, Mrs. Clinton took it as an opportunity to condemn an outbreak of “fake news” sweeping the nation and she was careful to characterize her concerns as being solely humanitarian. Lives are at risk, she says. Admonitions about humanity aside, Mrs. Clinton and the Democratic Party are, in truth, particularly outraged by fake news for having allegedly cost her the presidency. She and many others claim that the Russian government is directly responsible for the dissemination of fictitious stories that resulted in an undue benefit for Donald Trump. The sources of this bad information are a number of hastily thrown together websites, often with URLs that imitate existing sites, such as Drudge or ABC News. The fake stories produced by…
