Dr. Jimmy Kimmel?

America is no stranger to celebrities flaunting their politics. The entertainers we see on our television screens and in the movie theaters often become elitists in their perspectives. For this, their money and their name are often used by politicians looking to advance an agenda. More often than not, the beneficiaries of these celebrity activists are the political left. Hollywood in general has developed a reputation for being agents of the Democratic Party. In recent history, the number one achievement of the Democratic Party is the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, otherwise known as Obamacare. So it’s only natural… Keep Reading

Actor Participating In Anti-Trump Propaganda Video Was Accused Of Incest

Iconic Hollywood actor Morgan Freeman appeared in a propaganda film released this week propagating neo-McCathyist lies against President Trump and Russia to delegitimize last year’s election results. Considering the man’s checkered past, it is no surprise that he would embark on such a disreputable campaign. Freeman was accused years ago of having a bizarre incestuous relationship with his now deceased step grand-daughter. Back in 2009, Freeman failed his wife, Myrna, and was in the process of abandoning their relationship of 25 years. Many outlets reported that he left Myrna to become romantically involved with E’Dena Hines, Freeman’s step grand-daughter who… Keep Reading

Climate Change Alarmists Put Politics Before People During Hurricane Disasters

Tragedies and disasters are difficult topics for discussion. As they happen, people are displaced and it can even result in the loss of life. Both natural and man-made instances can be troubling for society to address. When do we address the situation and when do we discuss prevention in the future? The recent string of hurricanes is no change. Hurricane Harvey in Texas and now Hurricane Irma in Florida have renewed the climate change debate. With Hurricane Jose touching down across the east coast, this will only intensify. If there is indeed an issue regarding climate change, a scientific debate… Keep Reading

Joseph Goebbels: Hitler’s PHD

From its beginnings, academics abroad, and for a time within Germany, attacked the Nazi regime’s appeal to the uneducated, ignorant, and mindless as a reflection of those who peopled Hitler’s dictatorship in general and his inner circle in particular. This had a basis in reality, for among Heinrich Himmler, Martin Bormann, Herman Goering, it was only the former who had some type of post-secondary education. But Himmler’s was the equivalent of what is called today “a trade school,” as his chief focus was on agronomy, which he did not receive a degree for. Apart from Albert Speer, who attended graduate… Keep Reading

Claud Cockburn: Pioneer Of The Mainstream Media

Conservatives today locate the origins of the “mainstream media” in the Watergate and Vietnam era; when every reporter since has wanted to have the presidency-toppling effect of a Woodward and Bernstein. But from Watergate on, the presidencies that reporters have wanted toppled have been exclusively Republican ones. Much of this partisanship had to do with the inclusion of New Leftist ideologues, ironically once anti-establishment toward the press, burrowing into the profession and the academia that trains future journalists. Conservatives are certainly correct that the profession today is dominated by leftists who never left the late sixties, where objectivity was an… Keep Reading

Ludwig Von Mises Understood “Meme Magic”

One of the most consistent themes through the works of Ludwig von Mises is the role ideas play in shaping society. As he wrote in Theory and History: “Thoughts and ideas are not phantoms. They are real things. Although intangible and immaterial, they are factors in bringing about changes in the realm of tangible and material things.” How those ideas are transmitted has changed dramatically over time: from reliance on the spoken word, to the spread of print, to the rise of television, and to today’s digital word. Even within each era, new forms of communication have arisen. For example,… Keep Reading

The Alt-Right Becomes New Pop Culture Scapegoat Of The Trump Era

When President Obama was in office, there was no shortage of portrayals in popular culture demonizing conservatives and libertarians. Patriots were regularly cast as hate-filled terror threats in television, video games, movies, and media outlets. In the age of President Trump, a new scapegoat du jour has emerged in the alt-right. The plot to a currently unreleased video game, Far Cry 5 shows how the propaganda narratives are shifting in the age of Trump. The game is set in Montana, a well-known hot spot for patriots as well as the home of the alt right’s most infamous provocateur Richard Spencer. The… Keep Reading

Fake News: The Alibi Of Tyrants

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… Keep Reading
