Steve Bannon: “Information’s Going To Come Out” Showing GOP Establishment Is Behind Roy Moore Sabotage Campaign

While most Republican Party officials and many big names in the conservative movement back away from Judge Roy Moore following decades-old accusations of sexual impropriety, Breitbart News Executive Director Steve Bannon is standing strong under the pressure. He refused to withdraw his endorsement of Judge Moore, and says it is up to the voters of Alabama to decide who they want as their next US Senator. “The people of Alabama have got to decide,” Bannon said to a South Florida audience yesterday. “In Alabama, let people decide and we’ll see how it turns out.” Although Bannon’s support of Judge Moore… Keep Reading

Rand Paul’s Deathsquads

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) has done more than most Republicans in outreach efforts to leftists and minorities. Paul has tried to distance himself from the fringe of his party and movement, and grow the GOP with new demographics to make it a true big tent party. He has led this charge for many years. For these outreach efforts, he was greeted with an assassination attempt at his own home by his socialist revolutionary neighbor. The liberal media, who Paul tried so hard to placate throughout his Senate career, cheered on the leftist and avidly propagandized on his behalf, clearly trying… Keep Reading

Ralph Northam’s Contempt For Rural Virginians Will Doom His Gubernatorial Chances

The 2017 Virginia Gubernatorial Election has brought upon the Commonwealth a sort of an anti-2016 atmosphere. Two level-headed candidates are, for the most part, cordial to each other as they spar on the debate stage. Ralph Northam, the Democratic nominee is consistently polling just ahead or within the margin of error of four to six points. However, these polls do not reflect a disturbing degree of voter contempt for Democratic nominee, the current Lieutenant Governor of Virginia. Mr. Northam, a former physician from a portion of Virginia’s rural coastline with a grandfatherly southern draw, seems to care only for the… Keep Reading

Steve Bannon Plots Revolution Against GOP Establishment, Targets Utah Sen. Orrin Hatch For Removal

Steve Bannon continues his ruthless pursuit against his enemies in the GOP establishment. As Executive Director of Breitbart News, he has hammered enemies of President Donald Trump’s populist ‘America First’ agenda relentlessly. He is recruiting primary challengers for next year’s mid-term elections, and recently attempted to convince an anti-establishment hopeful to take out Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-UT). Bannon met with Boyd Matheson while the two men were both in Washington D.C. last week. According to a Deseret News report, Bannon tried to convince Matheson to run against Hatch, a long-time establishment favorite, in a primary election next year as apart… Keep Reading

The Left Loves Mass Shootings

Hayley Geftman-Gold, recently fired from her job as Vice President for CBS New York, wrote on Facebook that she has no sympathy for the victims of the mass shooting in Las Vegas. This is the reason she was fired, and good for CBS to do the right thing in that regard. Since Geftman-Gold’s remarks, there have been a slew of similar statements posted by private citizens who seemingly have no fear of their candor causing any hiccups in their careers. The comments are a grab-bag of vapid hate speech, most of them are celebratory declarations and sanctimonious denunciations that have become… Keep Reading

Senator Bob Corker Announces Retirement As The Establishment Exodus Continues

It’s been a difficult week for Senate Republicans. Senator Luther Strange, a heavy favorite by the Republican mainstream to win the Alabama primary, lost to former State Supreme Court justice Roy Moore by a wide margin. This comes after the failure of a last minute attempt to repeal and replace the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, an effort led by Senators Bill Cassidy and Lindsey Graham. Now, a prominent Republican Senator has announced his retirement. Senator Bob Corker has announced that, at the conclusion of his term in 2018, he will not seek re-election. First elected in 2006, he… Keep Reading

GOP Health Care Reform Means The Likely Demise Of Obamacare’s “Death Panel”

Over the past several months, the mainstream media and Washington elite have perpetuated conspiracy theories and demonstrably false narratives in an effort to distract and stymie the current administration from reforming America’s health care–and the claims are growing ever more outlandish. In one article, CNN teeth-clinchingly claimed that under the bill formerly known as the American Health Care Act (AHCA), rape and domestic violence could qualify as pre-existing conditions. In another, Salon asserted that women who undergo C-sections could be “monetarily punished” under the bill. Despite this propaganda campaign, President Trump and a Republican-controlled Congress are working hard behind the… Keep Reading

Conservative Optimism Revealed By Ossoff Loss

In his article for The Nation – Jon Ossoff’s Loss Should Be a Lesson to Corporate Democrats – D.D. Guttenplan (is that even a real name? It doesn’t sound like a real name) writes, “To win Democrats need to tell voters what they’re for—and to do that effectively, they need to stop running scared and let progressives, who don’t need focus groups or consultants to know what we’re for, take the lead.” This is standard liberal fare: The problem isn’t that they have bad policies, it’s that they didn’t explain them well enough. Obama was the master of this approach… Keep Reading

BREAKING: House GOP Whip Steve Scalise Shot By Gunman

House Majority Whip Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA) was shot by a gunman in Alexandria, Virginia at 7:30 EST during a congressional baseball practice, a congressional aide has said. Several of the staffers present also said to have been hit. Rep. Roger Williams (R-TX) injured his leg from falling during the incident but was not hit. 25 members of Congress were said to have been present at the baseball practice. Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) told Fox News that the gunman has been shot by police, and that a staffer used his belt to stop Scalise’s bleeding. Alexandria PD claims the suspect is… Keep Reading

The Trump Rally: Stocks Fly High As Confidence Surges

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… 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

The Corruption Of a Local GOP

In the 2013 mayoral election for the city of Syracuse, there was no Republican candidate to run against incumbent Democrat, Stephanie Miner.  To give the people of Syracuse a choice, Ian Hunter, a local conservative, and a small group of activists wore out their walking shoes going door to door to collect enough signatures to get his name on the ballot.  The requirement was 569 signatures.  The group was able to collect 680 thereby securing his nomination.   After their customary review, the Board of Elections ruled that they’d only collected 572 “valid” signatures.  According to people knowledgeable of the… Keep Reading

Renegade Party: A New Home For Conservative Rebels?

After being blasted on Breitbart as a “Republican spoiler” and “renegade Jew” for refusing to support GOP presumptive nominee Donald Trump, founder and editor of the Weekly Standard, Bill Kristol, is firing back. Taking in stride the comments from the Trump-adoring media outlet, Kristol recently purchased the web domain www.RenegadeParty.com and created the twitter account @RenegadeParty. I've bought https://t.co/xKmuMgr8Eh. Redirects (for now) to https://t.co/Np2BpY3HMA. Ducks all in a row. All that's needed now: a candidate. — Bill Kristol (@BillKristol) May 17, 2016   https://twitter.com/RenegadeParty/status/732676451376365568 Since the rise of Trump, voices on the right have been advocating for a true conservative to… Keep Reading

The Libertarian Party Vs. Austin Petersen

On the night of the first ever nationally televised Libertarian Party presidential debate, myself and a small group of fellow writers, editors, and activists were invited by Libertarian Party candidate Austin Petersen to an after party of sorts in downtown New York City. It was history in the making – for the first time, national news had covered a debate between candidates seeking a nomination for this party, which was not one of the two viable political parties in the Republicans and Democrats (though if the state of those factions as of 2016 counts as “viable” today, I’m not sure… Keep Reading

The GOP Is Finally Dead. What That Means For Real Conservative Voters

Yesterday, the Republican Party gasped its final breath as Ted Cruz, the candidate I named in my last article as the only remaining viable option in the party, dropped out of the 2016 race for the GOP nomination. Rand Paul supporters had for months been disparaging this man’s campaign for no other tangible reason other than the fact that he wasn’t Rand Paul. I criticized this idle purism at the time, and I implicate it now as the cause for Cruz’s narrow-but-meaningful losses in votes and delegates that ultimately left Trump just enough in the lead to count Cruz’s campaign… Keep Reading

How To Get Forced Into Saying “I Told You So” Without Trying

A couple of weeks ago, I wrote an article for Liberty Conservatives Magazine predicting that the Rand Paul campaign would not see success in terms of voter numbers, but instead would leave a legacy with much larger implications than a short term presidential bid would normally have. I argued that Rand’s maverick approach to not only 2016, but his entire career as a politician thus far would go on to influence politics in a positive, long-term way, and that his supporters (a camp I find myself weaving in and out of depending on the issue at hand) should celebrate that… Keep Reading

Why Rand Paul’s Campaign Will Go Down In History

I haven’t written much about Rand Paul in a while – not because I don’t like the guy, but because I feel like his most loyal endorsers are often the better sort to be writing about his current campaign. After all, those who love you most are the best voices to have in your corner when you’re trying to become the next leader of the free world. But now that Rand’s campaign looks to be coming to a forced, rousing, and highly resisted end sooner than later (though I would be happy to be wrong on that prediction), I feel… Keep Reading

The Cuban Challenge For All Americans

If we are to open up relations with Cuba we must do so with the intent of bringing the information age to all Cubans. That means insisting the Internet be made available to all Cubans, just as it is available to the Castro elites, the Pope, and Mr. Obama who all want new formalized relations. Cuba is a museum of two profound failures: the complete failure of communism to improve the quality of life for all Cubans, despite all it stole on behalf of the poor; and the second miserable failure of the US embargo to end Castro’s anti-American  communism… Keep Reading

The Betrayal Of The American Right

Published in 1979, the famous free-market economist Murray Rothbard wrote this masterpiece on how the Republican Party lost its way, betraying principle. In order to revive the principles of limited government and a non-aggressive foreign policy, conservatives such as Senator Taft, Goldwater, and President Reagan led coalitions against the establishment. Now, the Tea Party attempts to do the same with a coalition among Conservatives, Constitutionalists, and Libertarians. However, we have consistently failed to garner solidarity which leads another victory for the status quo. Congressman John Boehner was easily elected again even after suffering the biggest battle for Speaker of the House… Keep Reading

Rand Paul Boosts GOP Senate Candidates

Rand Paul’s leadership political action committee, RAND PAC, is launching ad buys on behalf of several Republican Senate candidates in tight races. RAND PAC had $242,000 cash on hand as of October 15, and has raised an additional $300,000 from a Ron Paul-style moneybomb over the last two weeks. The six-figure broadcast, cable, and online ad buys will primarily target Kansas, where incumbent Republican Pat Roberts is facing an unexpectedly tight contest against independent Greg Orman. The ads focus on the topic of foreign aid, with Paul lauding Roberts for opposing foreign aid to countries hostile to the United States.… Keep Reading

“War On Women” Charge Draws Laughs, Ridicule From Debate Crowd

This past Thursday, I had the privilege of attending the New York 23rd Congressional District debate, featuring Republican incumbent Tom Reed and his challenger, Democrat Martha Robertson. I arrived to the debate an hour prior at the request of my county GOP chair, and was surprised to arrive at an absolute spectacle. Several hundred supporters had already descended upon the arena, both sides being very well represented, though the Republican incumbent had a clear edge in numbers. As we stood in the hallway a group of snide looking college liberals stood to the side, chanting “a vote for Reed is… Keep Reading
