Conservative Turf War: Chambers Vs. Rand

There’s an old saying that has a kernel of truth to it: “That it takes a maniac to defeat a maniac.” There are exceptions to this rule as in the case of the calm and empirical Joseph Welch destroying the fanatical Joseph McCarthy with one phrase (“Have you no sense of decency?”).  But more often than not, fanatics are outmanned by their counterparts. An example is how then-Congressman Richard Nixon, already malformed with self-pity and paranoia, sensed early and correctly that the New Deal darling, Alger Hiss was a sociopathic liar who against all accumulating and damaging evidence denied his… Keep Reading

Iconic Libertarian Activist Optimistic Following Diagnosis Of Late-Stage Cancer

Justin Raimondo, a prominent libertarian activist of many decades, was recently diagnosed with late-stage adenocaricinoma cancer that he is treating with experimental medication. “However, Keytruda – recently approved by the Food and Drug Administration – for cases like mine, has proved to be a godsend for many patients previously thought hopeless. While the results are preliminary, they are hopeful: it looks like I have the key mutation that gives Keytruda one up on this terrible disease,” Raimondo said. Raimondo has bonafides within the libertarian movement that few can duplicate. In addition to being the editorial director of a successful non-interventionist… Keep Reading

Steve Bannon: It Is “Workers, Not Libertarian Theorists, Who Are The Backbone Of The Country”

Breitbart News executive director Steve Bannon recently addressed criticism that has dogged him since publicly aligning with President Donald Trump: that he is a racist. He denies such charges as baseless smears, claiming that blacks and hispanics are key parts of the winning nationalist coalition he is formulating to restore America. “Once we get 25 percent or 30 percent of the black working class, once we get 25 percent or 30 percent of the Hispanic working class, we’re gonna govern for 100 years,” Bannon said to White House reporter Keith Koffler. Koffler is working on a new biography, “Bannon, Always… Keep Reading

Cultural Marxism Is The Greatest Threat To Liberty And Needs To Be Crushed

In the 1970s, the suffering caused by Communism had become so obvious, that no leftist wished to be associated with economic Marxism or Marx in general, lest they lose any credibility they once held. In order to stop this accusation from spreading, leftists from the Frankfurt School and Post-Modernist thinkers developed social theories which primarily focused on the power struggle between different groups. By removing economics from the equation, these “Cultural Marxists” expanded Marx’s “class struggle” beyond bourgeois vs. proletarian. Under the critical theory of the Cultural Marxists, this class struggle extended to anyone of a so-called “oppressor” class vs.… Keep Reading

Justin Amash Upholds Jeff Flake’s Sorry Legacy In The House

Yesterday, Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) announced his retirement. Flake, one of the biggest hypocrites and disappointments of the Senate in recent years, thought he could help his political ambitions by opposing Donald Trump. He postured against Trump by constantly visiting Mosques, rubbing elbows with Planned Parenthood, and echoing Democratic talking points. He thought this would put him on the path for the Presidency; instead, it put him on the unemployment line. Unfortunately for libertarians and free market conservatives, a man believed to be their champion has adopted Flake’s poor strategy in the House, and it could lose him his seat… Keep Reading

Libertarianism And The Political Mainstream

Libertarianism has had an interesting relationship with the political mainstream over the last year. After years of being relegated to the fringes of political discourse, it was brought into the fold with the rise of former Congressman Ron Paul. While not everyone agreed with his views, many supported him for his consistency and honesty. His contribution to the liberty movement is perhaps the greatest, and many seem to have forgotten why. Paul approached his presidential campaigns the same way as he did his congressional career. It was never about the accolades, awards, legislative achievements, or history of having a big… Keep Reading

Steve Bannon Unloads On Libertarians During Values Voters Summit In Washington D.C.

During today’s Values Voter Summit in Washington D.C., Breitbart News Executive Director Steve Bannon pulled no punches and zeroed in on many targets. He even set his ire toward libertarians, who he feels put too much of an emphasis on economic output and lose sight of the civic nationalism needed to bind America. Bannon specifically called out policy centers such as the Heritage Foundation, CATO Institute, and American Enterprise Institute for their constant support of free trade. He also critiqued for the Austrian school of economics for stressing that ‘everything is about the economy.’ He hopes to eventually bring these… Keep Reading

Hans-Hermann Hoppe: Libertarians Must “Crush The Anti-Fascist Mob”

There has been a great deal of hype surrounding Austrian economist Hans-Hermann Hoppe’s ‘Libertarian and the Alt-Right’ speech that he delivered for his 12th annual Property and Freedom Society conference that took place last month in Bodrum, Turkey. The speech was finally released for the public yesterday, and it packed a serious punch. Eschewing political correctness, Hoppe delivered a brutal excoriation of social justice warriors, saying that it is incumbent upon libertarians to “crush the anti-fascist mob.” “Public anger must be aroused, and there must be clamoring far and wide for the police to be unleashed and this mob beaten… Keep Reading

The Dawning Of ‘Roy Moore Libertarianism’

Ever since Ron Paul retired from public life in 2012, libertarians have been completely rudderless. As much as libertarians may like to delude themselves that they do not need leaders, it has become abundantly clear that they need them as much as anyone. Without a strong leadership figure, libertarians have accomplished little other than being a national laughingstock. The post-Paul era has been defined by nothing but folly and embarrassment for libertarians, who are stubbornly unwilling to admit the political reality staring them in the face. The silver lining is that it should not be particularly hard for libertarians to… Keep Reading

Christopher Cantwell: Modern-Day Civil Rights Icon?

Ready or not, libertarian-turned-fascist shock jock Christopher Cantwell received his close-up following the “Unite the Right” fiasco. Cantwell’s blubbering face was plastered all over the mainstream media. He has been made into a convenient punching bag, and everyone is seemingly lining up to kick this easy target while he is down. Cantwell did himself no favors by flaming out of the libertarian movement, making many enemies along the way, before emerging as a figure in the alt-right. Going out of his way to inflame and enrage people, while an amusing shtick at times, has ultimately backfired on Cantwell (at least… Keep Reading

Barcelona And Beyond: How Politicians & Policy Wonks Play God With Your Life

No sooner do terrorists attack, than those who monopolize the conversation revert to abstractions: “terrorism returned,” “terror struck,” when, of course, not terrorism, but terrorists struck Barcelona, Spain, on August 17. Terrorists did the same days later, in Newcastle, England and in Turku, Finland. The men who murdered 14 in Spain, maiming and injuring over 100, 15 of them critically, are flesh-and-blood. Young, Muslim, Moroccan men with murder on their minds. It is the duty of governments to bar such men from civilized society, or keep such barbarians at bay. So, drop the Orwellian bafflegab when describing what elites have… Keep Reading

Defending Jeff Deist From The Politically Correct Libertarians

Certain quarters of the libertarian universe are in an absolute tizzy because Mises Institute President Jeff Deist invoked “blood and soil” in a recent speech. In the minds of some PC brain-addled libertarians, this is clearly an indication that the speaker was dog whistling to Nazis. This is both profoundly clueless and shameless PC grandstanding. Proof that “blood and soil” can only be some sort of cryptic reference to Nazism is supposedly supplied by a Google search of the term which brings back a lot of links to “wrongthink” websites. I respect many libertarians. I have many libertarian friends, both… Keep Reading

The Libertarian Split Continues As “Blood And Soil” Speech Triggers Another Racial Witch Hunt

The split between left-leaning and right-leaning libertarians has reached a fever pitch after Jeff Deist, Director of the Mises Institute, gave an iconic speech during his annual Mises University event about “blood and soil” libertarianism, an idea encompassing cultural conservatism as a barricade against state power. “It is reasonable to believe that a more libertarian society would be less libertine and more culturally conservative — for the simple reason that as the state shrinks in importance and power, the long-suppressed institutions of civil society grow in importance and power,” Deist said. “And in a more libertarian society, it’s harder to… Keep Reading

Reason Magazine Feminazi Threatens Libertarian Youth Activist Over Harmless Joke

Libertarians have typically been known as standing for freedom of expression, but that is going to change if Elizabeth Nolan Brown has her way. The sex-positive Reason contributor, who co-founded Feminists For Liberty with the vehemently anti-libertarian Cathy Reisenwitz, is bringing social justice warrior-style thought policing into the libertarian movement. And for what reason? Because her little feelings were hurt over a silly joke. This whining Feminazi, with stereotypically dyed hair and all, started a pathetic Twitter crusade on Saturday because a Young Americans for Liberty activist made a harmless joke on Twitter about women making sandwiches.

The Conflicting Ideology Of Anthony Burgess

Anthony Burgess’ disturbing dystopia, A Clockwork Orange, has been lauded by liberals as exhibit A in how society is to blame for criminals. His thrill-seeking murderer Alex, upon being “cured” of his homicidal tendencies is abused by society when he re-surfaces into the real world. For him to “cope” with this criminal society, the process that cured him is reversed, and the reader is left with the impression that criminal tendencies are the only way to survive in society. But the writer behind this “we’re all to blame” novel was in fact a social conservative. Burgess desired a Catholic monarchy… Keep Reading

What Happened To Ron Paul Supporters In The Age Of Trump

To understand what is currently going on in the minds of Ron Paul enthusiasts in the age of President Donald Trump, we must first understand what Paul represented as both a congressman and a presidential candidate. We must also understand that, at the height of Paul’s popularity during the 2012 presidential campaign, Paul’s appeal was such that both tea party patriots and young, pot-smoking college students were able to come together to stand for the same candidate. By 2016, dissatisfaction with American politics had become the norm. As the tension built up, the explosive Trump campaign seemed to strike a… Keep Reading

A Revolution Squandered: National Libertarian Events Show a Moribund Movement On Its Last Legs

Back in 2013, Ron Paul had recently retired from Congress, and spirits were high. Libertarians felt that Ron Paul would be remembered as a historical figure after his Presidential campaigns in 2008 and 2012 with his legacy lasting for generations to come. Optimism permeated through the movement, and it was widely believed that his son, Rand, would realize its full promise. His anti-drone filibuster was a huge hit to pretty much everybody, and the sky was seemingly the limit. It took less than four years for all of those gains to be completely pissed away. All of the credibility, the… Keep Reading

Based Stickman Shows Libertarians That Bold Grassroots Leadership Is Necessary

In a time where naked parasitic leftism is running wild, libertarians are faced with a choice. They can either stand and fight against this menace, or wave the white flag of surrender. This seems like it would be an easy choice for any lover of liberty, but if you listen to certain voices within the movement, cowardice is the most noble of options. “The left-wing combatants claim to be anarchists, and yet are furthering the state,” commentator Dan Sanchez wrote in a FEE column. “The right-wing combatants claim to be for liberty, and yet are putting liberty in danger.

Rothbard’s Revenge: The Developing Libertarian-Right Alliance To Crush Leftist Influence In Modern Society

The Southern Avenger Predicted The Alt Right In 2009

It was 2009 and the freshness of the liberty movement was still in the air with hope on the horizon, even with the recent election of Barack Obama as President.

At least that’s what the once fiery paleolibertarian writer Jack Hunter called it back in 2009.

A Donald Trump Presidency Indicates The Necessity Of Alt-Right Libertarianism

On January 20th, the reality finally set in. Donald Trump was sworn in as President of the United States.

The power that grew throughout the Bush and Obama years gave the Presidency an unprecedented amount of power. The power is there, but can this power be used to reduce government even slightly? Just within days of his presidency, Trump answered that question by signing an executive order to remove the United States from the corporate-devised Trans-Pacific Partnership.
