USA Today Attacks Patriots Quarterback Tom Brady For Being Friends With Trump

It wasn’t long into President Donald Trump’s Administration before an uproar was caused. Throughout his campaign, President Trump made terrorism and radical Islam a focus of his presidential campaign, both in the Republican primary and general election. Now he’s following through on his promise to be firm on the foreign threat, but has he gone too far? This is the debate raging across America. After the President temporarily halted immigration from seven nations via executive order, chaos at airports ensued and outrage resulted. Allegations of racism are renewed as opponents allege this is not a seven nation ban, but really… Keep Reading


Trump Blamed For Canadian Mosque Attack

On Sunday, a white supremacist entered the Quebec City Islamic Cultural Centre and opened fire on a group of Muslims engaged in evening prayers. This comes just days after President Donald J. Trump signed an executive order restricting immigration from several middle-eastern, Muslim countries. In the shooting, which occurred Sunday night, five people were killed and more were wounded. Just like the Charleston church shooting, the perpetrator of which I will not mention by name, this heinous crime was motivated by bigotry, plain and simple. The Charleston shooter shot and killed nine black churchgoers inside Emanuel AME church in 2015.… Keep Reading


Tear Down The UN And Build The Wall

Last Wednesday, it was announced that, by way of executive fiat, the United States would begin scaling back its financial support of the United Nations (UN). It was the same day our new President signed an order which jump-starts the construction of his long promised wall along the US-Mexico border. At face value it would seem these two imperatives bare no similarity except for the expanded exertion of executive hegemony over our national governance. There’s more to this picture than meets the eye. For too long the United States has sacrificed its sovereignty on the altar of globalism, all at… Keep Reading


Make Jerusalem Safe Again

Relocating the American Embassy to Jerusalem, as President Donald Trump has pledged to do, is more than symbolic. It’s what Christians should be praying for if they value celebrating future Easter Holy Weeks, in the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, located in Jerusalem’s Old City. With such a forceful gesture, the Trump Administration will be affirming, for once and for all, the undivided Jerusalem as the capital of the Jewish State. There’s a reason Muslims living in Israel proper—1.5 million of them—don’t migrate to the adjacent Palestinian Authority. They’re better off in Israel. Should Jerusalem, East and West, be recognized… Keep Reading


What’s Wrong With The “Model Minority”?

So, two weeks ago, there was a bit of a row between media personalities Steve Harvey and Eddie Huang. As usual, I found out about these celebrity foibles from reading Steve Sailer’s Unz column after the dust settled. However, seeing that this was a delightful example of “intersectionality” devolving into its typical contest, I took a greater interest in it than usual (however, not so great an interest that I upended my writing to pump out a column about it—I already had a duology of columns planned, and I wasn’t going to upend those works of genius). So, now that… Keep Reading


The Case Of The Pregnant Childless Woman: Remembering Roe v Wade

On Friday, January 27, 2017, masses of people converged on Washington D.C. to repudiate Roe v Wade, the 1973 Supreme Court decision that endowed upon American women a Constitutional “right” to “abortion.” With respect to most of the issues of the day, I can understand and appreciate, even if I do not accept, the reasons that my opponents give for the erroneous positions that they hold. The so-called issue of “abortion,” however, is decidedly not one of them. There are few topics that are framed from the outset in so many deceptive terms as is the topic of “abortion.” Even… Keep Reading


The War On Drones

The proliferation of drone technology has taken the world by storm. Quadcopters that cost many thousands of dollars just years ago are now available to hobbyists, commercial operators, and photographers for just a few hundred dollars. This new technology has also fostered several regulatory challenges. Known as Unmanned Aerial Systems, quadcopters, or simply drones, they are similar to remote control helicopters and planes. However, unlike RC aircraft, many of these drones are able to be flown out of the box without training or practice and are generally equipped with HD video and still photo cameras attached. Keep Reading


Media Silent While Millions March For Life

Media bias is on full display as huge crowds of pro-lifers gather in Washington D.C. for the March for Life against abortion, which has been receiving, unsurprisingly, little to no media coverage. On Friday, during the 44th annual March For Life, pro-life activists filled the national mall in Washington D.C. to March in solidarity with the unborn victims of abortion. Taking place on the anniversary of the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision creating the ‘right’ to an abortion, the March for Life is the largest annual demonstration in Washington. Keep Reading


Face To Face With Liberal Indoctrination

Some time ago, I suggested that liberals have, by in large, lost their minds. This is based mostly on their denial of reality and their freakish hypersensitivity when confronted with criticism or ideas that differ from their own. They appear to be coming apart at the seams with nothing concrete to ground them, but I ended the article with the idea that perhaps they aren’t crazy and are merely suffering the ill effects of years of brainwashing. The indoctrination received by our friends on the left begins, for the most part, in the public school system where the chief virtues… Keep Reading


Awkward: Trump’s Wall Is A Progressive Policy

‘This Congress is going to be the busiest Congress in decades — maybe ever.’’ With these words, President Donald Trump urged fellow Republicans in Congress to help him halt illegal immigration by supporting his plan to build a United States-Mexico border wall. But a wall that isn’t erected by the private land owners bordering Mexican land owners isn’t a wall. It’s government spending. And if government is spending, someone else is footing the bill. That someone is you and me. Keep Reading


Joan Mellen: The CIA’s Best Publicist

Joan Mellen is a professor of English and creative writing at Temple University, who has produced very little having to do with literature. Instead, she has focused her energies on exposing CIA criminality, specifically regarding the John F. Kennedy Assassination. As evidenced in three books — A Farewell To Justice: Jim Garrison; Our Man in Haiti, and The Great Game in Cuba — she reveals that she has never the left the mindset of the late 1960s, when the New Left regarded the CIA as a draconian secret government with its tentacles into every avenue of American life. How is… Keep Reading


Get Ready, The Wall Is Coming

On Wednesday, President Donald Trump signed an executive order allowing a wall to be built along America’s southern border. In addition, he banned “catch-and-release” of illegal aliens and took steps to limit sanctuary cities. In a Wednesday interview with ABC news, Trump promised that “construction of the border wall will begin in months.” He also affirmed the fact that Mexico will pay for the wall. He claimed that U.S. taxpayers will front the cost, being reimbursed by Mexico later on, saying: “I’m telling you that there will be a payment. It will be in a form, perhaps a complicated form.” Keep Reading


The Independence Of Richard Wright

Whenever a black conservative speaks out or even exists, white “progressive” America kicks in with charges that, if made by the Right, would be branded racist. Hence, conservatives like actress Stacy Dash are accused by the Left of having a “plantation” mentality motivated by a desire to be accepted by white America, or that they have forfeited their blackness, or all of the above. The Left exempts themselves from any racist sentiment in these accusations because their “hearts are in the right place.” Perhaps the prototype for this kind of behavior tracks back to the thirties with African-American author Richard Wright… Keep Reading


Women’s Rights March Is Masquerade For Presidential Insults

Less than 24 hours following President Donald Trump’s historic inauguration, hundreds of thousands of activists assembled around the country and different parts of the world in support of Women’s Rights. Many demonstrators marched proudly, displaying their knitted pink stocking caps complete with cute kitten ears cleverly referred to as ‘Pussy Hats’. The caps became a symbol of outrage toward sexually explicit comments made by President Trump over a decade ago. In addition to the caps, other feminist marchers dressed up in vagina costumes to send a message to the President: “this pussy is not for grabbin’!” Demonstrators arrived with picket signs… Keep Reading


Libertarian Morality

During the Republican presidential primary in 2012, Saturday Night Live, in their parody of the debate, had a questioner ask the actor playing candidate Ron Paul as to whether he would rescue puppies from a burning building; to whit, he replied, “No. It’s none of my business.” Jokes, as Groucho Marx tells us, are opinions presented entertainingly. The portrayal of a heartless Paul is no doubt how the mainstream media views libertarianism–as a kind of reckless freedom without consequences (even right-wingers like Dinesh D’Souza have contributed to this perception). But libertarianism does have a social conscience, as evidenced by its… Keep Reading


Hands On The Whip

One hundred years ago, Bolshevik leader V.I Lenin and his small party hijacked the much larger anti-war and anti-Czar movements, which stormed the Winter Palace with him, taking control of the government, and then instituting a 73-year communist rule that claimed higher body counts than even Adolf Hitler. This, in turn, ushered in an admiration for and defense of the regime from intellectuals, celebrities, and government officials. Viewed today, the stature of those who defended tooth and nail Soviet repression and imperialism is astounding. America’s premier journalist Lincoln Stevens infamously reported after visiting Lenin’s Russia, while the Bolshevik leader was… Keep Reading


The Second Thoughts Of William F Buckley

An image of the Right peddled by liberals–gaining even more traction in the age of Trump–is that conservatives never entertain second thoughts about their positions (“sticking to one’s guns” is some conservative’s riposte to this image); never adjust, and are locked into fixed positions. By turns, liberals congratulate themselves on entertaining the idea that they may be wrong. But the late founder of the post-war conservative movement defied this image, In his lifetime, William F Buckley, founder of National Review, was stereotyped by such uber-leftists as Norman Mailer who called him a “gentlemanly” version of Goebbels and by Dwight McDonald… Keep Reading


The Real Bitter Clingers

Every Republican remembers that memorable day in April of 2008 when President Obama infamously said the following at a San Francisco fundraiser to his champagne socialist donors: “It’s not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy toward people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.” Obama, almost nine years ago, had to explain why folks chose to stick to their traditional roots rather than embrace the progressive revolution. And he did so by explaining that they were racists and rubes, too foolish and stuck… Keep Reading


Free Markets At Home The Cure To Outsourcing Abroad

Fixing the outsourcing epidemic requires looking to treat the cause, not the symptom. The case for free trade is simple. Businesses should be able to locate where they want and import what they want. International free market activity is fundamentally parallel to that which occurs within U.S. borders. Thus, when everyone is doing what they are most efficient at, all benefit. For example, Floridians may be efficient at producing produce while Missourians may be most efficient raising livestock. Kansans may be best at growing crops while Pennsylvanians may be best at making steel. The same holds true internationally. The U.S.… Keep Reading


Mary McCarthy: Cheerleader For The Vietcong

Because novelist and literary critic Mary McCarthy was “a premature anti-Stalinist,” when the intellectual fashion in the 1930s was pro-Stalinist, one could assume from that moment on she saw through the various forms of communism. But this is not the case. In the early 1930s, McCarthy was a fellow-traveler of American communists, but this was lukewarm at best, as she confessed to finding them odd. McCarthy did not really have a sense of where she stood regarding communism until the Moscow Purge Trials began in 1936. The Trials were presented to the world as an effort by Josef Stalin to… Keep Reading


Earl Browder: Political Plaything

In the 1950s, with China falling to the Communists, the Soviets acquiring an atomic bomb, and New Dealers like Alger Hiss being outed as Soviet spies, a popular refrain on the Right and even among some Democrats was that these events occurred because FDR was soft on communism. To combat this perception, FDR spear-carrier and partisan historian Arthur Schlesinger Jr., while acknowledging some naivete on FDR’s part towards Stalinism, cited the administration’s jailing of CPUSA leader Earl Browder for passport fraud in 1940 as proof of their anti-communism. The context of this arrest did show an awareness on the administration’s… Keep Reading


President Trump To Sign Executive Order Restricting Refugees From Seven Countries

Republican President Donald Trump has been active since he took office last Friday. Wasting no time on priorities and fulfilling campaign promises, he has followed through on slamming the brakes on Obamacare enforcement and stepping up against abortion. If there was any doubt as to what kind of President he would be, these doubts are quickly being erased. Another topic appears to be getting addressed now as well, which is immigration and terrorism. According to reports, President Trump is preparing to sign executive orders restricting immigration from Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen. This undoubtedly will cause shockwaves among the… Keep Reading


Hemingway The Communist

Literary critics when dealing with the thorny issue of Ernest Hemingway’s politics have focused on a statement he made during the Spanish Civil War—a war that pitted, on one side, the Loyalists, backed by the Soviet Union, and a military rebellion, led by General Francisco Franco, and backed by Adolf Hitler. A Loyalist supporter whose leadership was controlled by the Spanish Communist Party and thus, the Soviets, Hemingway said while covering the conflict as a war correspondent, that “We’re all communists.” Literary historians and Hemingway’s contemporaries have scrambled to distance Hemingway from any communist sympathies. Instead, they have regarded Hemingway’s… Keep Reading


President Meets With CEOs. Here’s The Problem…

“They’re going to have to pay a border tax — a substantial border tax,” President Trump pledged Monday morning during a White House meeting with twelve CEOs including the heads of Dow Chemical, Proctor and Gamble, and Ford. He went on to thinly veil threats against the businessmen, saying, “All you have to do is stay. Don’t leave. Don’t fire your people in the United States.” The President also discussed a 75% regulation cut and tax cuts for both the middle class and for corporations and a ‘big border tax.’ This is troubling for several salient reasons. Primarily, the public… Keep Reading


The Women’s March And Sexist Assumptions About Abortion Views

The Women’s March has been an enormous moment in politics and likely will be remembered by history as a prominent moment in political resistance. Across the country and in the nation’s capital, concerned citizens and angered activists are swarming to allow their voices to be heard. Americans are utilizing their right to assemble and speak freely to protest issues that are important to them. With that said, just because they have the right to free speech doesn’t mean there’s a moral justification to what is being spoken. The women’s march is presented as a moment of defiance against Republican President… Keep Reading


Liberal Narratives

When exposed Soviet Spy Alger Hiss was convicted of perjury 96 years ago this month, the far Left, personified by the American Communist Party, denounced the verdict and championed Hiss as merely an innocent New Dealer framed by fascists. Fifties’ era liberals like Arthur Schlesinger Jr., a fervent defender of the New Deal, and one of the founders of post-war liberal anticommunism, refused to play that game. Along with other liberals (John Kenneth Galbraith, an economist who served in the Kennedy administration, John F. Kennedy, then a senator, and such literary heavyweights as Leslie Fiedler and Lionel Trilling), Schlesinger accepted… Keep Reading


President Trump Reinstates Ban On Federal Money For International Abortion Groups

Abortion continues to be a heated topic in American political discourse. Especially now as the Women’s March continues in Washington D.C. and across the country, a woman’s supposed right to abort their children is a hot topic. Though the Supreme Court legalized abortion through the controversial Roe v. Wade decision, conservatives have long fought the procedure they claim is murder. As the Administration of Republican President Donald Trump begins the process of rolling out its agenda, conservatives can find some hope in the abortion procedure being stopped. President Trump has reinstated a policy known as the Mexico City policy. First created by… Keep Reading


The Selective Outrage Over Foreign Influence In American Politics

It almost feels as if the Red Scare is back from the distant pages of history. The dead and gone period has come back for the modern era, with fresh fear of the Russian menace. This time, the nation is gripped with the fear that our presidential election was tampered with. Is President Donald Trump a Russian plant? Was his rise to power aided by a foreign influence, such as the Russian government? The possibilities may very well be there and for many that is a cause for fear. Is this fear justified? Absolutely. American politics should be dictated by… Keep Reading


Nancy Sinatra Rips CNN For Lying About Her Position On Trump Using Her Father’s Music

CNN has made a name for itself promoting fake news and being an obvious promoter of the left. While the network and others in the mainstream media have long been labeled as liberal-leaning in their bias, the preference for Hillary Clinton was painfully obvious in last year’s presidential election cycle. Now the propaganda machine is targeting Nancy Sinatra, daughter of the late music legend Frank Sinatra. It was announced prior to the inauguration of Republican President Donald Trump that he would be using Frank Sinatra’s song “My Way.” It’s not unusual for politicians to use songs and have a musician object.… Keep Reading


Fitzgerald: More Wised-Up Than Hemingway

When the Leonardo Di Carpio-powered The Great Gatsby came out in 2013, reviewers treated F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel with appropriate respect, but, like those before them, had also designated it the only reason he stands with Hemingway as a major novelist. The familiar story of Fitzgerald never being able to do a repeat performance because of his descent into alcoholism and dealing with his wife, the crazed Zelda is part of folklore. By the 1930s, the story goes, he was out of step with that decade of political commitment. But despite not being taken seriously by his literary contemporaries, Edmund… Keep Reading


Rosenberg Avenue

In Cuba, where the main mode of transportation for officers is the bicycle, and the only flourishing trade is prostitution, one monument defies the crumbling setting. Even though the late Fidel Castro admitted that socialism had not worked in Cuba, one maxim remains as evidenced by the message on the monument: “For Peace Bread And Roses We Will Face The Executioner. Ethel and Julius Rosenberg. Murdered June 19, 1953.” What is telling about this is how it sidesteps debating their guilt or innocence and focuses exclusively on how they died. With their “innocence” now in ideological tatters, only their execution remains… Keep Reading


President Trump Has Formally Begun The Process Of Withdrawing From Trans-Pacific Partnership

Throughout the campaign cycle, Republican President Donald Trump repeatedly attacked trade deals and pledged to get the United States out of the controversial Trans-Pacific Partnership. The trade agreement has been a constant political focus for months, with conservatives and libertarians joining President Trump in opposition. Interestingly enough, it was also opposed by progressives such as Senator Bernie Sanders. Opposition to the agreement provides a unique opportunity for various grassroots movements to unite against the political spectrum. Until now, the only thing left was for the President to follow through on one of his biggest campaign promises. Targeting the Trans-Pacific Partnership… Keep Reading


Madonna Tells Women’s March Protesters She Thought About Blowing Up The White House

The outrage against President Donald Trump continues to boil over. The controversial businessman who recently took over the executive branch has triggered liberals and Never Trump Republicans for a year now, but things have recently escalated. Protesters have been in Washington D.C. for the last few days causing property damage and other violent tactics, resulting in numerous arrests. The violent side of the crowds has been reduced to a mere line in the stories as headlines read like peaceful protests. Celebrities and political figures have flocked to these events to seize the opportunity to further divide the country. Amidst all… Keep Reading


Is Curt Schilling Being Punished By Baseball Hall Of Fame Voters For His Conservative Politics?

In Major League Baseball, the World Series is the big stage and getting there is an incredible feat. Many baseball players have made it, both winning and losing it. While legends have been made by their performances in the Fall Classic, others have been in the events leading up to it. New England and New York sports fans will never forget the 2004 American League Championship series when the Boston Red Sox came back from a 3-0 series deficit to win against the New York Yankees. An unprecedented baseball feat, it has only been accomplished three times in all of the… Keep Reading


Edmund Wilson: Too Little, Too Late

George Orwell once famously said that some ideas are so preposterous that only an intellectual could believe them. This was never truer than with Edmund Wilson, America’s premier man of letters in the 20th Century and 120 years old this year. As a literary critic, Wilson was solidly empirical, examining an author through their biography, and then applying this information to their works. Such an approach would have made him politically incorrect in today’s circles where “isms” are hammered onto an author’s works. A case in point: Jay Gatsby, the main character in F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby is… Keep Reading


NBC Has Yet To Respond To Saturday Night Live Writer’s Vicious Attack On Barron Trump

The rise of businessman Donald Trump from improbable candidate to President of the United States has triggered an entire movement of political paranoia. His style threatens the emotions of those accustomed to standard politics. Instead of being a cheap plastic face with slick hair and manufactured sound bites, he’s an imperfect image and unregulated personality. For many who require the assurance of uneventful normalcy, this is devastating. The result has been relentless attacks. While it is fair to criticize an individual who enters the arena prepared to take heat, there are boundaries. The unfortunate reality is that sometimes spouses get… Keep Reading


Why Does The Left Riot? Because They Don’t Work!

On Saturday, hundreds of thousands of protesters took to the streets of Washington D.C. to express their disdain for the live incarnation of sexism, President Donald J. Trump himself, and the misogynist patriarchy during the Women’s March on Washington. Throughout the 2016 election cycle, massive and unprecedented rioting and protesting has taken place at Trump rallies, after election night, and again during and after the inauguration. What brings the left out in force to riot? And why weren’t Republicans doing the same thing to President Obama, Bernie Sanders, and Hillary Clinton? Rioting became out of control during several Trump rallies… Keep Reading


If You’re Serious About Starting a Dialogue On Race, Talk To White People – Not At Them

I made it through the entire 2016 electoral cycle without writing a single article on race. I wrote nothing on Trayvon and Zimmerman, Ferguson, Baltimore, Black Lives Matter, or the KKK celebrating Trump’s election. I managed to avoid being targeted online by either BLM racists or alt-right “race realists” as I tried to navigate the turbulent waters of the most contentious election in recent memory. But the streak dies today, because after reading Rev. Derrick Keith Rollins Jr.’s article titled “What white people should do about systemic racism,” I realized we need to turn this decades-old race monologue into a… Keep Reading


Trump’s Problem

Let’s not imagine that Trump can alone pick up his popularity ratings. Several days ago I picked up the Inquirer while in Philadelphia and saw on the front cover, next to a puff piece for Michelle Obama, a headline that Trump’s popularity is now down to 40%. Although I’ve no implicit faith in polls, given the likely politics of the pollsters and given their obvious downplaying of Trump’s support throughout the presidential campaign, from what I’ve seen and heard, it seems that Trump’s approval rating is in fact well below 50%. Despite Obama’s longtime associations with onetime terrorists and raving… Keep Reading


Melvyn Douglas: A Liberal At War With The Reds

When in 1940, the House Committee on Un-American Activities came to Hollywood to investigate suspected industry communists, they overshot their mark by including actor Melvyn Douglas. Douglas was hardly a communist; indeed, he had been battling the influence of Party members in liberal and anti-fascist groups for well over a decade. Because he became president, Ronald Reagan is often cited as a liberal anti-communist who once warred with industry Communists. But Douglas, an unreconstructed New Dealer, had fought Communist influence a full decade before Reagan. Previously apolitical, Douglas and his Helen Gahagan Douglas (a future Congresswoman who ran and lost a… Keep Reading


“False Witness” Harvey Matusow

During the blacklist period, anti-anti-communists cast doubt on the sincerity of red-hunters, arguing that anti-communism was just a means for them to get publicity and money. They even peddled the legend that once Senator Joseph McCarthy was no longer a force to be reckoned after the Senate stripped him of his powers in 1954, he abandoned his red-hunting crusade and tried to get mileage out of promoting civil liberties. But this claim was false. Even with Cold War tensions abating in the mid-50s, McCarthy to his dying day still bellowed about the communist menace, but now to empty chambers. Anti-anti-communists… Keep Reading


Wretches Like Us

“Amazing grace how sweet the sound That saved a wretch like me. I once was lost but now I’m found. Was blind but now I see. ‘Twas grace that taught my heart to fear And grace my fears relieved. How precious did that grace appear The hour I first believed.” On the eve of the Inauguration, an editor and writer for The Liberty Conservative, James Allsup, was assaulted by a mob of anarchists, radicals, criminals, and various other protesters. Allsup is also a candidate for Chairman of the College Republicans and former leader of the Students for Trump movement. According… Keep Reading


When Coups Worked

When then-President John F. Kennedy called for a “flexible response” regarding policy toward the Soviet Union, he was reacting to the policies of the Eisenhower years. Historians have labeled the latter administration’s strategy as “massive retaliation,” which meant that the United States was prepared to empty the silos at communist aggression. Sixty-three years ago this week, John Foster Dulles, Eisenhower’s pick for secretary of state, told Congress during his confirmation hearings, that he not only favored “containing” Soviet Union, but also liberating captive populations behind the Iron Curtain. But the administration had backed itself into a suicidal corner by assuring… Keep Reading


‘Go On Now Go,’ Barack Obama, ‘Walk Out The Door …’

The Hollywood Idiocracy has let out a primal scream to protest Donald Trump, the people’s president. Members of the collective convened to convulse like Linda Blair in “The Exorcist,” to the sounds of Gloria Gaynor in “I Will Survive.” This particular protest was made up of mediocre females: Emma Stone, Natalie Portman, Amy Adams, Hailee Steinfeld, Chris Pine, Michael Shannon, Matthew McConaughey, Andrew Garfield, and Joel Edgerton (the last five are women with the Y chromosome). Miss Blair, of course, was great in “The Exorcist.” The same goes for the demon Pazuzu who possessed Blair’s character (Regan MacNeil) in the… Keep Reading


Colin Flaherty: “Racial Inflamer” Or Bold Truth Teller?

My colleague, a white man of the left, sympathizes with Black Lives Matter and could typically be counted upon to presume the guilt of police officers in those highly publicized instances of alleged “police brutality” like, say, those involving Mike Brown, Eric Garner, and Freddie Gray, cases that BLM has exploited. In the vast majority of these alleged instances of “systemic racism” and/or “police brutality,” and in all of the aforementioned cases, the besmirched officers were ultimately cleared of all wrongdoing—yet only after much damage had been done. My colleague—a good guy with whom I can ordinarily engage in congenial… Keep Reading


Endangered, Divided And In Decline: America In The Obama Years

Yesterday was the last full day of the Obama regime. When historians look back on the years 2009 – 2017, many (the honest ones at least) will scratch their heads in varying degrees of bewilderment and confusion. “Why,” they will ask themselves, “did so many vote against their own self-interest, the interests of their nation and the safety and prosperity of the world?” In the end, there are many answers, but few which make actual sense or which stand up to reason. Suffice it to say that the 8 years of the Obama regime will largely be considered a “lost… Keep Reading


The Cynicism Of American Culture

Last week, I wrote an article discussing why the fabled “Great American Novel” will likely never come to pass. In said article, I posited that the main reason this is the case is because American culture is a heavily guilt-laden culture. Most unusually, I posited that, contrary to the old claim of Americans being super-fanatically patriotic, this guilt/cultural cringe has always been a part of American culture and, indeed, one of the biggest motifs of the American arts. And I stand by that claim: while there is certainly a lot of low-brow Walmart-level “patriotardery” being produced in the United States,… Keep Reading


Is Barack Obama The Worst President In United States History?

For years now, the story of Barack Obama’s presidency, according to conservatives, has been extreme. While it’s clear he’s been a terrible President for a multitude of reasons, many would lead us to believe that Obama is the worst President in United States history. This is an extreme assertion and one that is difficult for anyone knowledgeable about history to support. Even for conservative students of history, this is a point that deserves additional review. Is Barack Obama indeed the worst President of United States history? Let’s explore other candidates for the title. Woodrow Wilson is perhaps the father of modern… Keep Reading


The President Donald Trump Era Begins

After a year and a half, the longest long shot in American politics has been inaugurated as President of the United States. Republican businessman Donald Trump has officially inherited the White House and the executive branch from Barack Obama, a two-term President and former United States Senator. The months and years ahead will be a rough ride for America in some ways. Democrats appear unwilling to give the President a chance and Republicans are ready for change. Regardless of political affiliation, most can admit that the Trump Administration will bring a new course to American politics. Keep Reading


The Liberty Conservative Associate Editor Attacked By Anti-Trump Protesters

For many, the thought of Donald Trump triggers a bitter and intense reaction. Though many of the Never Trump activists claim to be opposed to the vitriolic and violent rhetoric, there seems to be a growing use of the tactic in their own movement. This has been on full display again in Washington D.C., where the inauguration is mere hours away. Reports have noted numerous arrests have occurred as protesters storm the streets. Protesters are starting fires in the street, shouting obscenities, and otherwise projecting an aggressive and negative presence upon the nation’s capital as the transition of power wraps… Keep Reading
