Trump Slams Dicky Durbin!

P​resident Trump on Twitter Monday blasted Democratic Sen. Dick Durbin, who stated the president used the phrase “s–thole countries,” ​referring to him as “Dicky” and blaming him for scuttling a deal to assist younger immigrants.

“Senator Dicky Durbin totally misrepresented what was said at the DACA meeting. Deals can’t get made when there is no trust! Durbin blew DACA and is hurting our Military.​,” Trump posted on Monday.​

D​urbin, the one Democrat at a White House meeting last Thursday about immigration, stated Trump asked why the US continues to just accept immigrants from “s–thole countries” referring to Africa, Haiti and El Salvador.

Trump Slams Pakistan: “Nothing But Lies And Deceit.”

In his first tweet of 2018, President Trump threatened to chop off financial aid funds to Pakistan, saying that its leaders have given the U.S. nothing but “lies & deceit” while offering “safe haven to terrorists we hunt in Afghanistan.” “The United States has foolishly given Pakistan more than 33 billion dollars in aid over … Keep Reading

Christmas Surprise! Senate Gifts The Public With Its Sexual Harassment Numbers On Christmas Day

As the Christmas vacation weekend set in, the Senate Rules and Administration Committee revealed a report showing the Senate has spent $1.5 million on sexual harassment settlements since 1998.

Trump Is Correct, Haiti Is a Shithole

in Politics by

As with many, if not most, of the reported obscenities to have emerged from 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, the latest raft of divulged vulgarities are based upon anonymous sources with one exception. In addition to the unnamed, faceless rats who leaked President Trump’s recent, “shithole” comments, there is one verified witness of our fearless leader’s alleged latest debacle, senior senator from Illinois and dyed-in-the-wool Democrat, Dick Durbin. The Daily Wire was quick to note Mr. Durbin’s tenuous relationship with the truth in the specific context of his history of deceptive disclosures regarding the inner workings of the White House. It’s not…

Now’s a Great Time To Stop Meddling In Haiti

in Politics/World by

Earlier this week, President Trump allegedly disparaged Haiti, describing it as “sh*thole.” The response has been what you might expect. It’s been a torrent of demands for apologies from the Trump administration and commentary on how “troubling” Donald Trump’s views are.  Upon hearing of such comments supposedly directed at Haitians, a well informed person might be tempted to think “if only this were the worst thing a US president has inflicted upon the Haitian people.”

Peter Tatchell And The Total State

in Law/Politics/World by

I have some respect for Peter Tatchell. He campaigned against the anti-homosexual laws before this was a safe thing to do. He has shown courage on other issues. This being said, I am troubled by his latest set of recommendations. Writing on the 8th January 2018 for The Friends of Europe blog, he declares that “equal rights are not enough.” It is not enough for people to be treated equally before the law. It is also necessary for children to be brainwashed into agreeing with him. He says:

Thanks, Government — Nearly Half Of Puerto Rico Is Still Without Power

in Politics by

In the wake of Hurricane Maria, most of Puerto Rico lost electricity. Since electronic transactions were not longer possible under these conditions, the Federal Reserve was forced to fly a planeload of cash to the island to avoid a total breakdown of the economy there.  But even then, we were assured that the loss of power was a momentary blip. Everything would be back to normal soon.  But as of December 29 (more than three months after the hurricane hit) only 55% percent of power-company customers actually have power again. The good news is that the “Army Corps of Engineers has projected that power…

DACA: ‘A Bill Of Love’ Or A Bill Of Goods?

in Politics by

DACA. That’s the magic word, the “Open Sesame” of sorts, that stopped Democrats from saying President Donald Trump was senile. DACA is the acronym for “Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals.” The DACA program is Barack Obama’s grant of education, food stamps, health care, a shot at a job and a reprieve from deportation for the youthful alien among us. Or, for the older illegal immigrant who still has that certain, impish je ne sais quoi, and can pass for a younger lawbreaker. Trump said “DACA,” and he said it with love.

President Trump Seems Far Saner Than His Critics

in Politics by

After 18 months of scrutiny, the accusation that candidate Donald J. Trump colluded with the Kremlin looks as empty as a Soviet store shelf. Far-Left Democrats screamed for Trump’s impeachment even before his inauguration. Nonetheless, the House considered articles of impeachment on. The measure was massacred 58-364. In fact, 126 Democrats just said, “Nay.” Undeterred, the Trump-loathing Left’s latest gambit is that the president is “unfit for office” due to mental illness.

The Other One Drop Rule

in Culture/History by

Seeing as historical racism and historical guilt/corruption of blood are apparently all the rage of discussion nowadays, I feel it is time once again to discuss the complexities of historical racism and reveal that things were never quite as simple as they’re assumed to be. A smug talking point that Europeans will never cease to hold over the heads of Americans is that not only are Americans more racist than Europeans now, not only have Americans always been racist, but Europeans were supremely enlightened and tolerant even in the past. In other words, even while Americans were busy lynching and…

No, We Don’t Need A Federal “Solution” To Infrastructure Problems

in Economics/Politics by

On December 19, an Amtrak train in Washington State killed three people and injured 100 others when it derailed and crashed into traffic lanes on a nearby highway. The day before, Atlanta’s international airport suffered a disastrous power outage: the whole airport, the world’s busiest, went dark for 11 hours. Thousands of flights were disrupted. For many hours nobody in authority attempted to explain—or even seemed able to explain—what had happened. Both cases have been used to bolster claims that the US federal government needs to spend more on infrastructure.  In the wake of the Washington derailment, President Trump quickly took…

How President Trump Normalized Neoconservatism

in Politics by

It’s fact: Neoconservatives are pleased with President Trump’s foreign policy. A couple of months back, Bloomberg’s Eli Lake let it know he was in neoconservative nirvana: “… for Venezuela, [Donald Trump] came very close to calling for regime change. ‘The United States has taken important steps to hold the regime accountable,’ Trump said. ‘We are prepared to take further action if the government of Venezuela persists on its path to impose authoritarian rule on the Venezuelan people.’” “For a moment,” swooned Lake, “I closed my eyes and thought I was listening to a Weekly Standard editorial meeting.” Onward to Venezuela!

The FBI Did Everything But Drive Hillary’s Getaway Car

in Politics by

The FBI did everything but drive Hillary’s getaway car. Former secretary of state Clinton is a free woman largely thanks to the tender loving care that the FBI provided her and her conspirators during its probe of her illegal, unsecure e-mail server and related abuse of government secrets. GOP lawmakers concluded this after grilling FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe on December 21, behind closed doors, according to John Solomon’s molar-grinding expose in Tuesday’s The Hill. “For the first time, investigators say they have secured written evidence that the FBI believed there was evidence that some laws were broken,” Solomon reported. This proof includes newly confirmed…

The Astonishing Efficiency Of School Vouchers

in Economics by

There are a plethora of reasons why education in America is mediocre. We can argue that teacher unions care more about personal benefits than teaching kids, that the information taught in America is far less advanced than the information taught in other nations, or even that America is not fostering a culture where the youth even value education. Whatever argument you choose, we can all agree that America is inept at educating. But instead of rambling on and on about the status quo, real solutions should be formulated. It would be important to note that the US spends more than…

In Africa, Ending a Despot Doesn’t End Despotism

in World by

In the tradition of dimming debate, the chattering class has reduced systemic corruption in South Africa and the near collapse in Zimbabwe, respectively, to the shenanigans of two men: Jacob Zuma and Robert Mugabe. Zuma, the President of South Africa, currently faces possible impeachment for corruption, while Robert Mugabe has now been forcibly “retired” after 30 years as President. Surely by now, though, it should be common knowledge that in Africa, if you replace a despot, but not despotism, you only oust a tyrant, and not tyranny.

2017 Was Trump’s Year Of Winning Dangerously

in Politics by

For President Donald J. Trump, 2017 concludes unlike how it commenced. Huge distractions arrived early, including court battles concerning Trump’s travel restrictions on terror-torn nations, a Niagara Falls of classified leaks, and loud threats of impeachment over alleged Russian collusion. Meanwhile, repealing and replacing Obamacare, expected to take just a few months, devolved into a quagmire that devoured time, energy, and morale. But 2017 ends as Trump’s Year of Winning Dangerously. He has navigated these and other troubled waters and defied his liberal and conservative critics. As he puts it: “We are compiling a long and beautiful list” of achievements.

No Good Deed Goes Unpunished

in Politics by

You’re more than likely familiar with Aesop’s brief fable of a mouse and a lion. If you’ve lived under a rock your whole life I’ll bring you up to speed: A mouse convinces a lion to spare his life in exchange for the promise of a future favor. Cue the future. The lion finds himself trapped in a hunter’s net and the mouse responds to his roar and saves him from the net. It’s a quaint story with a timeless message, that is, a kindness is never wasted. It’s a nice thought but we don’t live in a fable, we…

The Realness Of Hate Hoaxes

in Culture by

So if you’ve been paying attention to the news recently, you’ll remember that last month the air force academy recently had a hoax incident in which a black cadet forged racist graffiti that was allegedly threatening him, only for it to be revealed that he himself had painted said racist graffiti. Surprisingly, Lieutenant General Silveria (the officer who first publicized the incident and took every opportunity to lecture the United States about its still lingering wounds of racism and how racist racism is America’s original sin) has remained committed to the narrative despite its collapse. Silveria will not only not repent, but neither will…

Turning Point USA Holds Successful Conference Despite Mainstream Media’s Sabotage Efforts

in Politics by

Last week, The Liberty Conservative covered the Turning Point USA’s Student Action Summit in West Palm Beach, FL. The event was largely considered a success, but was marred by a hit piece that was dropped by the New Yorker conveniently timed to undermine the event. This was supposed to be a big bombshell, but largely fell flat. It consisted of the same old accusations of racism fueled by an anti-black text message released by a now former employee as well as the testimonials of bitter ex-employees with axes to grind because they are no longer getting paychecks. The article also…

President Trump Unleashes The Engines Of Growth

in Economics/Politics by

It was a little over a year ago that I wrote my first article for the Liberty Conservative, “The Authors of Prosperity.” Published on the 20th of November, 2016, it expounds on the promise of then-candidate Donald Trump’s intent to slash taxes for individuals, couples, and businesses, and in so doing, usher in an epoch of wealth generation the likes of which most millennials can’t fathom. This would not be an unprecedented feat, and I wrote of how Harding and Coolidge, Kennedy, Reagan, Clinton, and Bush all stewarded over economic rebounds and successes through of conservative tax reform. In my…

The Economy Is Approaching A Recession

in Economics by

There are many ways to measure market cycles and the business cycle, however economics is not an exact science. One of the methods that can be used alongside measuring of the yield curve is the output gap. The output gap is the difference between actual and potential economic production. It allows economists and investors to determine what point the economy is at in the business cycle. When the output is above potential, the economy starts to overheat, causing inflation. When output is below potential, the economy isn’t growing as fast as it could, possibly because of a recession. To make…

Simón Bolívar: Liberator Or Tyrannical Demagogue?

in History/World by

Latin American revolutionary Simón Bolívar is commonly referred to as the George Washington of Latin America by numerous scholars and political figures. Bolívar’s military prowess was unquestioned, as he led a vigorous liberation campaign that freed present-day Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, and Venezuela from the grasp of the Spanish Empire. Bolívar’s exploits have become legend in Latin American political history, with numerous countries fashioning themselves as “Bolivarian” in their style of governance. From leftist parties like the late Hugo Chávez’s Socialist Unity Party to establishment conservative parties, Latin American elites have repeatedly channeled the image of Bolívar in order to create an aura of political legitimacy. Despite…

Busting Statist And Scripture-Based Fibs For A Borderless America

in Philosophy/Politics/Religion by

When preaching immigration leniency and lawlessness in America, immigration bleeding hearts should lay off the Hebrew Bible, Leviticus 19:34, in particular. “The stranger that sojourneth with you shall be unto you as the home-born among you, and thou shalt love him as thyself; for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt.” One Rev. Ryan M. Eller, on Tucker Carlson’s show, gave a dissembling and misleading reading of the tract, in mitigation of the immigration status of Kate Steinle’s killer. The reverend glibly translated the word “sojourn” to mean citizens living among you, the latter having created, presumably, an immutable…

Was John Brown Sane?

in History by

The exploits of John Brown have long fascinated historians. His actions, for better or worse, certainly had a significant effect on the country prior to Southern secession, but the fascination with Brown is largely driven by the enigma the man himself has proven to be. In trying to explain his actions and motives, historians have wrestled with questionable and biased testimonies by the people who knew him, and many of the mysteries surrounding John Brown have been explained – then and now – by mental disorders. But was John Brown crazy? Diagnosing historical figures is an ambitious task, but the…

Lara Witt Would Be a Terrible First Date

Lara Witt is the managing editor of Wear Your Voice and despite being a solid seven and a half on the unofficial 1-10 scale of female hotness, she’s a waste of natural talent. She’s not a bad writer but she embodies the famous Reagan quote about how liberals aren’t ignorant, they just know so much that isn’t true.

Trump Is Better Than Santa

in Politics by

He’s making a list, and he’s checking it twice. No, I’m not talking about that jolly old poster-child-for-morbid-obesity, Saint Nick. I’m talking about President Trump. His list is a little different than Santa’s. Santa compiles a list of children who are naughty and nice, the nice ones get presents, and the naughty ones get coal or something. The most fitting corollary in today’s current affairs would be Lindsey Vonn trash talking President Trump prior to her aborted efforts at the Winter Olympics. That’s a stocking full of coal if ever I’ve seen one. President Trump’s list is different than Santa’s.…

Groupthink In Academia: The Will To Submit

in Politics by

“Groupthink” is a phenomenon that social psychologists know well. It was in 1972 that Irving Janis first coined the term, and since this time the concept of groupthink has been applied to the study of decision-making in various contexts. However, all too rarely have scholars analyzed academia in terms of groupthink. Yet there can be no question that contemporary academics at most universities and colleges throughout America (and beyond) are at least as much as and, truth be told, probably much more so than anyone else under the spell of Groupthink. I have been teaching philosophy for the last 18…

Just In Time For The Holidays, Reckless States Are Coming For Your Online Purchases

in Economics/Politics by

If there is anything that gets demagogic politicians and pundits riled up, it’s the closing of tax loopholes, and the tax-hike demagogues might just be getting one of their wishes come December. Bloomberg reports that most online consumers will pay sales taxes in some shape or form in the next few months. Currently, consumers pay taxes on goods purchased straight from Amazon, but they can avoid paying taxes on goods if they purchase them through Amazon’s third-party merchants. By the start of December this could all change, as several merchants are expected to start collecting taxes in return for partial…
