New Yorker Fires Ryan Lizza Over Sexual Misconduct, While CNN Only Suspends Him

2016 was the year of the mainstream media. Then candidate-Donald Trump and his allies attacked the press often for what they called fake news. The supporters of this agenda regularly attacked multiple news sources for their alleged bias. But instead of backing down, the mainstream media stood up against what they claimed as an attack on the free press. Their characterization of themselves was holy, infallible and valiant. The journalists could do no wrong. The same applied for news anchors and other prominent figures in the media. 2017 was the year they fell. Ryan Lizza was a Washington correspondent for… Keep Reading

Why Justin Amash Is Correct About Spending Caps

Congress has a bad habit of treating compromise like a good thing even in instances where it does bad things for the American people. The same can be said of bipartisanship. The problem is that in a lot of these instances, Congress coming together doesn’t mean they’re coming together for the people. If anything, they’re coming together for their own political careers. The optics of bipartisanship is stellar, it’s just the details that get ugly. It’s been an rough year for an ineffective Republican Congress that has repeatedly failed to pass various legislative promises. Now the threat of government shutdown… Keep Reading

Disney Rejected Obama Proposal To Use ‘Frozen’ Characters To Push Climate Agenda

Next to the government takeover of healthcare, one of the biggest objectives of former President Barack Obama was tackling climate change. It’s a common rallying point for the left. Liberal and progressive activists like to speak of how humanity is bringing the planet down with endless fear-mongering. The result of the human shaming is bigger government and less freedom, all in the name of saving us from ourselves. Climate change alarmists like to utilize a wide array of propaganda to sell their extremist ideas. One of these propaganda concepts was a proposal by the Obama Administration to utilize the characters… Keep Reading

Senator Rand Paul Won’t Vote For Spending Bill That Adds To Deficit

Congress has a spending problem, much like the rest of the federal government. Most elected politicians are fine with pushing their pet projects and making heavy promises without concern for the overall financial condition of the nation. But there are a handful of politicians who will make difficult positions and stick to them, one of them being the son of former Texas Congressman Ron Paul. Senator Rand Paul (R-Kentucky) announced that he will not vote an end-of-year spending bill that adds to the deficit. In a tweet, the Senator stated he could not in good conscience vote to add to… Keep Reading

Senator Bernie Sanders Opposes Impeachment Of President Donald Trump

Impeachment has become a hot button topic for liberal and progressive activists. In their view, the President is wrecking America with his constant criticisms of the mainstream media and unconventional political approach. In some of the most extreme views, Trump is showing an increasingly unstable temperament, which raises concern about his mental competency. In the view of the left, we’re entering dangerous territory. Yet when impeachment hit the floor, many Democrats opposed the measure. Leadership in the Democratic Party remains staunchly opposed to removal of the President. It presents an interesting point, when most on the left describe potentially impeachable… Keep Reading

CNN Accuses President Trump Of Bullying As They Doxx Private Individuals

‘The escalating war of words between CNN and President Donald Trump only continues to get worse. President Trump believes he is taking a stand against fake news, a label he has given to the network and other mainstream media sources. CNN, on the other hand, views itself as a frontline defender of the free press and democracy. The claim among many against the President is that his attacks are a threat to the First Amendment. President Trump attacked a recent news story claiming he watches 4-8 hours of television per day. The story was picked up by a number of… Keep Reading

Christie V. NCAA: The Modern Fight For The Tenth Amendment

In modern America, the Bill of Rights is treated as a suggestion booklet. The Second Amendment states that the right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed, through it is often limited and watered down by excessive regulation. The Fourth Amendment protects people from unreasonable searches and seizures, though the federal government regularly violates people’s privacy in the digital age. These are just some of the many numerous examples. And then there’s the Tenth Amendment. The Tenth Amendment has a fairly straight-forward premise. Whatever is not specifically authorized for the federal government or prohibited for the states is… Keep Reading

Mainstream Media Still Doesn’t Understand Why Fake News Label Exists

The arrogance of the mainstream media is perhaps at its highest. While free press is a necessary element to a free society, the idea is fading. The fading of the free press isn’t because of President Donald Trump ripping fake news outlets or his supporters trolling networks like CNN. It’s fading because the networks being targeted continue to get stories wrong and assume that it does nothing to their integrity. As major providers of the news, mainstream media sources have an enormous responsibility. This responsibility to the American people doesn’t include flashy headlines, clickbait new stories, or misreported facts. The… Keep Reading

Democrats Still Not Ready To Let Go Of Superdelegates Under New Leadership

For liberals and progressives, 2016 will be remembered as the year that they lost to Donald Trump. The businessman-turned-politician was never supposed to win. His crude remarks, his blunt style, and blatant violation of political norms offended Democrats across America. Despite all of these things, they still lost. Though many were united in opposition to then-candidate Trump, they were not united behind a candidate. Although former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was overwhelmingly selected to be the Democratic Party’s presidential nominee, the selection process itself was hardly fair.

Allegations of sexual misconduct are piling up inside and outside of Washington D.C. Powerful men in society from the mainstream media to Capitol Hill are being taken down by claims that they acted inappropriately.

Prominent examples include fallen media titans Charlie Rose and Matt Lauer, both of which admitted to the allegations to some degree before resigning.

Obama Shamefully Invokes Godwin’s Law While Whining About Democracy

Changes to the presidency in recent memory have often meant a shift in ideology. Former President Bill Clinton was a liberal Democrat, but George W. Bush was a neoconservative. The most recent member of the ex-presidents’ club, Barack Obama, began as a progressive Democrat before finding his way to the establishment. While initially staying quiet, he has recently become more vocal in criticizing his successor. Like many Democrats, Obama seems to believe we’re living in the apocalypse. While President Donald Trump is no limited government politician, he is far from the satanist dictator his opponents make him sound like. Are… Keep Reading

CNN’s Desperate Damage Control Effort Backfires Spectacularly

CNN and the right have long been at odds. While MSNBC has always been considered more overtly liberal, CNN has carried the nickname “Clinton News Network” for some time. It carries that nickname for good reason. The battle became personal when Donald Trump entered the political arena and went to war with the network. Ever since, CNN and the President have been swiping at each other. Mainstream media networks, publications, anchors and journalists all like to claim that they’re under attack.

President Trump Catches The Washington Post Lying About Crowd Size

Much blame is placed on President Donald Trump for his ongoing feud with the mainstream media. Every time he calls them out, it’s taken as an attack on the free press. But is using your constitutional freedom of speech really opposing the free press? Can the First Amendment actually be used to stop the First Amendment? This is the issue with the constant hyperbole from left-wing agitators.

Liberal Comedian Sarah Silverman Is Fine With Rape Jokes Because Of Partisanship

The incident involving liberal commentator Sam Seder at MSNBC was bizarre. After a tweet surfaced where he made a rape joke about his daughter, he was let go by the network. The tweet was made about Roman Polanski, stating he didn’t care about him, “but I hope if my daughter is ever raped it is by an older truly talented man w/a great sense of mise en scene.” Reprehensible language that any respectable organization should disavow.

The proper course of action at this point would be to address the issue directly and ensure it doesn’t continue.

Why Do Modern Political Parties Fear Using Impeachment?

Impeachment is a powerful tool within the Constitution. The Constitution features a series of checks and balances to keep the branches in order, but impeachment allows for the direct removal of officials from government. So why isn’t it used? With the exception of former President Bill Clinton, there has been no use of the process in recent memory. Does this mean all modern Presidents of the United States have acted with the utmost integrity? Hardly. Former President George W. Bush was widely despised by Democrats. Liberals and progressives were regularly protesting a man they saw as a hardcore warmonger. The… Keep Reading
