Hispanic Republican Legislator Unleashes Profane Tirade On Cops After DWI Arrest

Assemblywoman Maria Rodriguez-Gregg, a Republican lawmaker from New Jersey of Hispanic descent, was arrested for a DWI following a car accident back in April. The video has been released, and it shows her launching into profane trades denying that she had done anything wrong. “I have done nothing but support the police,” the assemblywoman said to the officers in the video. “I am even one of your No. 1 supporters politically. Fking aholes.” She was accused by law enforcement of smoking marijuana in addition to her alleged drinking, a charge which she vehemently denied. Rodriguez-Gregg was originally elected back in… Keep Reading

Study Indicates Weak Men Prefer Socialism

The unflattering term ‘snowflake’ is generally associated with the overly sensitive left. It is a term referring to someone who’s easily hurt emotionally and quick to go on the defense, especially when opinions contradict their narratives. This was evident at colleges across the nation as classes were canceled following Trump’s election victory. College officials believed the legal adults who were attending their universities needed to be consoled. Of course, those legal adults gave school officials many reasons to be concerned for their emotional wellbeing. For some reason, this generation of progressive students were not mentally prepared to accept any other… Keep Reading

The Deep State Attempts a Coup

Hitler’s 1923 coup attempt, best known as the Beer Hall Putsch, was only a nominal failure. The immediate result was his arrest, trial, and conviction, though his sentence was barely carried out. The long-term effect was to inspire in him the belief that power is best achieved through engagement with the ruling regime and existing democratic apparatus. Ten years later, his goal was accomplished by way of his legitimate but coercive ascendancy to the Chancellorship and the implementation of the Enabling Act. World War II put an end to his ambitions but Hitler’s prowess in actualizing his aspirations within the… Keep Reading

Hypocrisy At The Heart Of The Left

There exists no dearth of outrage on the Left toward the perceived hypocrisy of President Donald Trump and the Republican Party at large. Mr. Trump, they remind us, was elected due to a number of campaign promises, not least of them was the pledge to “drain the swamp”, a not-so-thinly-veiled allusion to the pervasive influence of lobbyists and career politicians infesting the halls of power in Washington, D.C. Mr. Trump’s cabinet nominees, particularly Steve Mnuchin and Betsy DeVos, are stark examples in the minds of leftists that our president has broken his word. The Left is correct, from time to… 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

Did The Free Market Kill Coal?

Would you like to know my secret to turning my environmentalist friends into stalwart defenders of the marketplace? The answer is simple: coal. You would be amazed by the reversal in rhetoric witnessed right before your eyes, typically accompanied by a big dose of schadenfreude aimed at Appalachian people. The “free market killed coal” adage apparently qualifies as ironic humor in leftist circles. Never mind the tens of thousands of families, hundreds of communities, a plethora of near-bankrupt school districts, and so many others left behind in the wreckage of coal’s decline. They’ll laugh as states who have endured generation… Keep Reading

No Better Friend, No Worse Enemy

General James Mattis has been selected by President-elect Trump to succeed our country’s current Secretary of Defense, Ash Carter. The response to this choice has been almost universally praised as Mattis’ reputation for intelligence, innovation, and honor have preceded him since he first began his climb to prominence during the Persian Gulf War. He is not without his critics. There are those who believe in preserving a strict status of civilian control over the military, a policy and sentiment that are not without worth. Because of this tradition, there is a law in place which requires former military officers to… Keep Reading

The Authors Of Prosperity

Amid a torrent of rumors surrounding the allegedly chaotic Trump transition, there have been some glimmers of hope emerging from the fledgling ascendance of the Manhattanite billionaire to the halls of power in Washington, DC. Vice President-elect, Mike Pence, has taken the reins of the transition process and his first order of business was to fire all lobbyists from the team, a promising sign that Trump plans to make good on his campaign pledge to “drain the swamp.” Coming on the heels of this welcome news is the report that the president-elect will order a ban on all lobbying activities… 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

Here’s Why I Attack Hillary More Than Trump

A close friend of mine has been busting my balls lately with comments that look something like this, “I see you’ve been defending Trump and attacking Hillary quite a bit lately. Can we assume you’re backing Trump now?” It’s not the first time I’ve received a comment like this. In a political climate so polarizing and a social climate that shoves the “vote or die” mantra down our throats, I can understand why someone would come to this conclusion. We have a false range of choices, and people quickly look to the faintest hint of support or dissent as an… 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

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

FEC: We Do Not Have a Filing Indicating Rand Paul Is Running

UPDATE: The FEC confirmed to CNBC that this filing relates to an earlier report by a pro-Rand Super PAC, and that Rand Paul has indeed not yet filed to run for President. A spokesman for the Rand Paul campaign later affirmed this statement. ORIGINAL POST: Though Kentucky Senator Rand Paul has yet to make an official announcement of his candidacy for President, and is widely expected to do so at an event in Louisville on April 7, he has made the decision to preemptively file with the Federal Election Commission as a Republican candidate for President of the United States,… Keep Reading

Rand Paul Taps Liberty Movement Leader As Iowa Political Director

Sen. Rand Paul’s 2016 presidential campaign, which in recent months has gone from being a strong possibility to a near certainty, has hired a new political director to conduct operations in the first-in-the-nation caucus state of Iowa. Jonathan Van Norman, who served as former Rep. Ron Paul’s regional director in Iowa’s 4th Congressional District during his 2012 presidential run, will join an Iowa campaign team which is already staffed with several big names such as former Iowa Republican Party chairmen Steve Grubbs and AJ Spiker. In addition to his work for Ron Paul 2012, Van Norman’s impressive resume includes Liberty… 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
