Austrian Election Results Move Nation To The Right Amid Influx Of Muslim Migrants

With their traditional Western and Christian culture at stake, Austria held their parliamentary election on Sunday, October 15th. After the coalition government collapsed and the two longtime partner parties turned on one another, the country had to make a decision–patriotism or globalism. Foreign Minister Sebastian Kurz is the center-right Austrian People’s Party candidate who was expected to win yesterday, and he did not disappoint. His opponents were Christian Kern of the Social Democratic Party of Austria and the leader of the Freedom Party of Austria, Heinz-Christian Strache. Keep Reading

Puerto Rico Wastes Everyone’s Time With Another Statehood/Independence Referendum

Puerto Ricans overwhelmingly chose statehood on Sunday in a non-binding vote in a vote that will likely change absolutely nothing with regards to the US territory’s status. Turnout was the lowest of any vote on the island in over 50 years, with almost eight out of 10 voters not even showing up at the polls. According to the island’s election commission (CEE in Spanish) had reported that about 23 percent of the island’s eligible voters had cast ballots and 97 percent of the votes were for statehood. Puerto Rico’s Governor, Ricardo Rosselló, had been pushing for a “yes” for statehood… Keep Reading

Obama Attacks Moscow To Salvage His Legacy

Try as he might to salvage what’s left of his tarnished legacy, President Obama can’t seem to avoid humiliating himself on his way out of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. A year or two ago it became painfully apparent that George W. Bush was no longer a viable excuse for Mr. Obama’s own failings and since that time our outgoing Lame-Duck-in-Chief has been grasping desperately for some new bogeyman to point to for the cause of his presidential woes. The latest bogeyman/strawman/red herring has in recent months become Russia and its strongman president, Vladmir Putin. I won’t get into the gory details… Keep Reading

CNN Labels Julian Assange a “pedophile” Without Evidence, Wikileaks Responds With Legal Threat

The mainstream media has faced increasing scrutiny over the last year for its conduct, from both sides of the fence. Liberals allege that too much air time was given to President-elect Donald Trump, implying they legitimized a candidate who never should have taken off, let alone won the presidential election. Conservatives and libertarians suggest the media is still, as they long have been, biased against the right. Despite the difference in allegations, both sides of the spectrum seem to agree there is a credibility issue with the mainstream media. For all the allegations of pushing biased stories or overtly fake news, they have… Keep Reading

Don’t Believe The Polls Anymore?

If you’ve seen the news, opened social media, or generally lived anywhere other than a desert island for the past few months, you’ve inevitably seen a plethora of presidential polls that all say the same thing: Donald Trump is losing to Hillary in every swing state and a good number of red states. Badly. Like, we are talking Barry Goldwater 1964, in your guts you know he’s nuts, badly. Republican strategists from across the ideological spectrum range from cautious optimism that it’s not all over to circling the wagons around down-ticket campaigns. With the cascade of public opinion falling down… Keep Reading

What Donald Trump Should Have Said To America

It’s become increasingly likely that the election is already over, and Donald Trump will lose to Hillary Clinton. However, there does remain a few glimmers of hope – one being the insurgent candidacy of Evan McMullin, and his “deny 270” strategy, the other being Trump’s withdrawal from the race. During the final debate with Hillary Clinton, when the candidates were given time to make a closing statement, in the interest of preserving the United States of America, and preventing the catastrophic damage a Clinton Presidency would unleash, Donald Trump should have used all his time (and take all the time he needed) to… 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

A Winning Ticket For The GOP Presidential Nomination

America faces a serious choice in 2016. The question is a simple one. Do we continue or expand upon the policies of Barack Obama, or do we make a decisive choice to step away from the abyss and back into the light of freedom and justice by renewing the promise of a new American century? From the beginnings of his insurgent, grassroots campaign for Senate in 2011, I have always supported Ted Cruz, and knew that he would be the strongest, boldest voice for a Conservative renewal of America. His understanding of and dedication to the Constitution far exceed that… Keep Reading

Should Libertarians Vote?

Midterm elections take place tomorrow and it’s around this time of the political cycle where we witness a bevy of propaganda aimed at various political goals. Some of this propaganda is aimed towards the support of specific candidates or ballot initiatives, while others simply push a generic “Get out the Vote!” message, without any specific reasons for doing so given. Those who travel in libertarian circles (i.e. social media newsfeeds), are also likely to be met with propaganda of a different message, that being “DON’T VOTE!!!!”  There are various reasons given for this blanket proclamation, among them: “Voting is a… Keep Reading

Midterm Election Messaging Towards Millennials Turns Shirtless

The mid-term elections are less than a week away, and as the big day draws closer, the means employed to attract the youth to the polls are garnering extreme controversy. This was first seen with the release of the College Republican National Committee’s “Say Yes to the Candidate” ads, which were widely derided by the liberal media as sexist. It has since then, evolved from music videos containing popular celebrities to physically trying to get millennials to the polls. The most outrageous case of this attempt is set to take place at North Carolina State University this Election Day, thanks… Keep Reading
