HuffPo Slams Trump For Believing Genes Are Real

According to The Huffington Post, this may be the most “dangerous part of Trump’s campaign.” Is it his support for peace with Russia? Is it his hiring of Steve Bannon, who has been made out to be the mastermind of the troublemaking alt right movement? None of the above. In the eyes of The Huffington Post, the most dangerous part of Donald Trump’s campaign is that he agrees with mainstream theories of genetics. In a video intended to spook and scare people, The Huffington Post – an organization that Trump has accurately lambasted as being “very dishonest” – compiles various comments from… Keep Reading

Single-Payer Sucks

Proponents of universal healthcare hold one of the most morally attractive political positions of present day: healthcare is a natural human right and should be readily available to all, regardless of socioeconomic standing.  On top of their moral high ground, they pile on supposed proof of single payer’s merits by pointing to Canada, Scandinavia, and various other countries.  It’s their belief that if only such a system were implemented in the US, the problems associated with healthcare would largely be alleviated. It’s a very emotionally pleasing opinion to hold.  Single-payer advocates pat themselves on the back for being so benevolent… Keep Reading

Fewer Professionals, Please

In the summer of 1769 the town of Boxford, Massachusetts was on edge. Jonathan Ames’ pretty young wife, Ruth, had taken ill, and when Mrs. Kimball, a neighbor, came to visit, Ruth’s mother-in-law claimed the odor coming from her chamber was too foul to admit visitors. Kimball nevertheless insisting on a visit, found the room agreeable, but her friend writhing in pain on the bed and foaming at the mouth. When the young woman died the next day, her body was buried quickly, attended by an out of town minister for a very small group of family, with no coroner… Keep Reading

The First Presidential Debate: The Crook Vs. The Clod

The first debate between the two least-admired nominees in electoral memory was a puerile display; an embarrassing 90-minute bum fight detrimental to the viewing public and inimical to a Republic which once had higher standards. At the end of 90 minutes, it is clear that Trump knows little to nothing about foreign policy, global economics, and how the Constitution works; while Hillary knows little to nothing about integrity, honesty and how the Constitution works. They are – both of them – unfit for the office, with Hillary being worse. Yes, Lester Holt asked Trump many negative questions (about tax returns, the “birther” issue, the… Keep Reading

Another School Shooting Highlights The Need To Let Teachers Carry

Another school shooting has occurred, this time at an elementary school in South Carolina. It’s an unfortunate tragedy anytime an act of violence occurs, but it’s particularly devastating when children are involved. In a year that has seen incidents such as the one at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida, it is sure to become a hot political topic. The response to the shooting will likely be the same as any other. Conservatives will respond by standing by gun rights and sending thoughts and prayers to the victims. Liberals will mock the thoughts and prayers, and then waste no time politicizing… Keep Reading

What The National Backlash Against Governor LePage Says About America

Maine Republican Governor Paul LePage is a controversial figure, not just in his home state but nationally, as well. His statements and actions have earned him both national and even international attention a number of times during his time as Governor. Most recently, he has landed in hot water over comments about drug dealers being of a certain race. The injection of race has earned him widespread criticism, including allegations that he is racist and mentally unstable. Ultimately, these actions have led to many pundits and liberal activists comparing him to Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump. The comparison to Trump… Keep Reading

Blame Rand Paul For Not Being On The Debate Stage

For libertarians, this has been a difficult year. After years of building and preparing, Senator Rand Paul fell short in the Republican presidential primary. Not only did he fall short, but he was barely a blip on the radar in the Iowa caucus vote. In the time since, the alternative proposed by the Libertarian Party is Gary Johnson, who has been criticized by many more harder line libertarians for not being in line with principles. Debates about Johnson aside, there is a clear absence of a staunch libertarian in the race. The social media response to the first presidential debate by many… Keep Reading

Why Clinton Has More To Lose In The Debates Than Trump

The presidential debates between Republican Donald Trump and Democrat Hillary Clinton are what we’ve long waited for. The sniping from rally podiums and through reporters is taking a backseat to the candidates coming together on stage. How will it turn out? Many assume that the debate stage is Hillary Clinton’s moment to shine. To a degree, there is logic to this assumption. She has a long career in politics and thus has had more time to live the game. She understands what is acceptable and what isn’t, has become better refined, and ultimately is tempered. Her opponent, on the other… Keep Reading

Where Are The Riots Led By Violent White Lives Matter Thugs?

We live in dark times in America and the outrage abroad is justified. The government is spying on its citizens, exiling whistleblowers, and the justice system is out of control. Statistics show us that, to a degree, there is a race problem, with African Americans more likely to be arrested for certain offenses. While this is true, the fact has been exploited to perpetuate violence abroad. Black supremacy group Black Lives Matter and like-minded groups and activists have exploited multiple tragedies to create social unrest.

Students Must Fight Against Cultural Marxism’s Iron Grip On Campuses

A generation ago, we lived in a society that accepted free speech as a bedrock principle. This is not so much the case today as we in live a society that not only advocates against free speech but shuts it down unconstitutionally, as well.  According to the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE), around 55 percent of college campuses across these great United States has some sort of restriction on free expression. How has a country gone from valuing free thought to needing trigger warnings so that others will not become offended? Social Marxism and egalitarianism are the main… Keep Reading

White Lives Matter

There’s been a lot of talk in the news recently about race, racial tension, and race relations in general. With rioting organizations like Black Lives Matter causing violence in the name of equality, there has been an emphasis on the discrimination against African Americans. Does racism exist? It absolutely does. Unfortunately, in a human world full of prejudice and emotion, nobody is going to be perfect. Not everyone will be pure. We do our best to deter it. But the implication is that racism is only towards African Americans and not against any other race. This is false. While shootings… Keep Reading

Clinton’s Millennial Outreach Attempt Backfire Shows Why They Don’t Like Her

Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton struggles to catch on with regular Americans. While her poll numbers have generally kept her slightly ahead of her Republican opponent, her unfavorability ratings remain high while general trust in her honest ability remains low. This shows her poll numbers have less to do with her strength and more to do with concerns about Donald Trump. Even on that point, though, Trump is gaining ground on his Democratic opponent. One key demographic that Clinton is struggling with is millennials. Young people this election cycle are leaning more towards third party candidates, whether it be Libertarian… Keep Reading

Yesterday, my social media was full of stories of liberty loving conservatives blasting Ted Cruz for publicly stating that he was voting for Donald Trump for President of the United States of America.

Americans Should Be Outraged Over The Government, Not Chelsea Manning

There has been a debate for years now regarding the impact of Chelsea Manning and whether or not she is a hero or traitor. Manning was prosecuted for leaking numerous classified materials and diplomatic cables to Wikileaks.

Five Observations About The Cruz Endorsement And The Future Of #NeverTrump

The Legendary Revolutionaries Of The National Football League

The world is certainly a dark place. War is neverending, poverty still haunts much of the world, and injustice is strong even in the free world. The United States of America is supposed to be a beacon of hope and freedom for the world to see, or so the story goes. But the truth about what the country has become is hardly a fairy tale. Citizens are overtaxed so the government can drop bombs abroad and kill innocent civilians in drone strikes. The government spies on its own citizens and intercepts digital data.

Alt-Left: “Racism,” “Supremacy,” And “Extremism”

Not long ago, National Review writer Jonah Goldberg discussed the “alt-right” with Hugh Hewitt on the latter’s talk radio show.  They agreed that, at bottom, the movement upon which Hillary Clinton bestowed national recognition last month was “racist” and “supremacist.”  As such, it deserved to be purged from the GOP and the conservative movement. The notion that there is an alt-right is highly suspect, for there can be an alt-right only if there is a right.  But, contrary to what Democrats and Republicans alike would have us think, there is no genuine right in contemporary American politics.  So, there is… Keep Reading

What Terrorism Poll Numbers Say About Clinton And Trump

Terrorism has become a growing topic in recent years. The post-9/11 era has become defined by a fear of various threats abroad from those who would seek to destroy us. First, it was Al Qaeda, and we invaded Afghanistan to avenge the many fallen Americans. This occurred with widespread support from a wounded and scared country, living in fear after the biggest terrorist attack in our history.

Immigration And Conservatism– The Economy

Conservatism is the philosophy of a predictable, healthy society. No issue brings our various beliefs together like immigration, particularly the proposition of open borders and an immigration policy grounded outside of the national interest. Conservatives have rightly objected to an ill-conceived agenda of mass migration into the United States with no additional effort to assimilate or filter immigrants. While the media will attempt to characterize and demonize conservative opposition to limitless immigration as racist or counterproductive, it’s our duty as a movement to remember where we’re coming from, what we’re conserving, and why the Left is wrong.

Former Ron Paul campaign chairman Jesse Benton has been sentenced to two years probation and six months home confinement for his participation in a 2012 bribery case, according to the Courier-Journal.

The charges stem from an investigation into a secret $73,000 payment from Ron Paul’s 2012 presidential campaign that was funneled through a third-party video production company and ended up in the account of a limited liability company owned by former Iowa senator Ken Sorenson.

How Gary Johnson’s Failure Shows That Selling Out Doesn’t Work For Libertarians

Being dead-set in the middle of the libertarian students movement gives me a unique perspective in the development of the cause. It cannot be understated on how much the Johnson/Weld campaign has damaged the movement, both as a whole and for the future. The embarrassment began back when Gary demanded that Jewish bakers be compelled by state force to bake Nazi cakes. That was a pathetic misstep, and one that he has since amplified with many similar concessions of libertarian principle. Johnson sympathizers within the libertarian movement have said that these types of statements are necessary to remain pragmatic, but… Keep Reading

Donald Trump, now the Republican presidential nominee, has taken up the issue in the past and put it front and center.
