Gun Control Wouldn’t Work In America

in Culture/Politics by

Another spat of mass shootings, and the same old arguments for and against gun control have sprung up like clockwork. Since we all know this isn’t really going to affect anything, allow me to give my two cents on this issue: Gun control would never work in America (and I specify strictly WITHIN the United States). Not only will it not happen in the United States, it would NOT fix the violent crime problem were it to be passed. First of all, yes, it is true that some other nations in the similar economic “level” as the USA have strict…

Morley: Destructive Paranoia In The CIA During The Cold War

in History/Politics by

Among the Grassy Knoll Left, the CIA has always been the prime suspect in the JFK assassination. In their scenario, the Agency had good reason to kill the president as his supposed attempts to end the Cold War threatened the justification for their existence and the source of their sinister power. With the president who represented the “last best hope” in checking this American version of the SS murdered, the CIA continued unchecked its shadowy control of the United States government. Despite being a conspiracy theorist himself, Jefferson Morley, nevertheless keeps his head about the Agency in this good but…

College Leftists Grow So Unhinged That Even Joe Biden Is Crying Foul

in Politics by

This week an invited speaker at a university blasted campus leftists across the nation for using violent tactics to silence the views of conservative speakers. But for once this criticism of the protesters who beat up students (along with innocent bystanders) for merely wanting to attend the speeches was not voiced by a conservative. Instead the criticism was uttered by a former official in the frankly leftist Obama administration: former Vice President Joe Biden. Before a University of Delaware audience, Biden defended the First Amendment rights of those who campus radicals found detestable, as well as the rights of students…

Conservative Turf War: Chambers Vs. Rand

in History/Politics by

There’s an old saying that has a kernel of truth to it: “That it takes a maniac to defeat a maniac.” There are exceptions to this rule as in the case of the calm and empirical Joseph Welch destroying the fanatical Joseph McCarthy with one phrase (“Have you no sense of decency?”).  But more often than not, fanatics are outmanned by their counterparts. An example is how then-Congressman Richard Nixon, already malformed with self-pity and paranoia, sensed early and correctly that the New Deal darling, Alger Hiss was a sociopathic liar who against all accumulating and damaging evidence denied his…

Hey GOP Establishment, Want To Cut The Burden Of Government? Cut Spending

in Economics/Politics by

Washington, DC is currently in the middle of a the “tax reform” process, which as Jeff Deist, points out, is ” a con, and a shell game.” Tax reform proposals, Deist continues “always evade and obscure the real issue, which is the total cost — financial, compliance, and human — taxes impose on society.” Tax reform is really about which interest groups can modify the current tax code to better suit their own parochial interests. The end result is not a lessened tax burden overall, and thus does nothing to boost real savings, real wealth creation, or real economic growth. It’s just yet another government method of…

How ‘The FREE Act’ Could ‘Freeze’ The Credit Industry

in Politics by

Between May and July, hackers breached the cybersecurity of Equifax, a company that provides consumer credit scores, exposing the personal details of up to 143 million U.S. consumers. This information included names, driver’s license numbers, and Social Security numbers. Democrats immediately jumped at the chance to regulate the credit industry. Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and Sen. Brian Schatz (D-HI) proposed the Freedom from Equifax Exploitation Act (FREE Act), a panicked, overreaching response to an event that doesn’t define or represent the credit industry. The FREE Act would ultimately enable the excessive and unnecessary regulation of a credit industry that provides…

Rand Paul’s Deathsquads

in Politics by

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) has done more than most Republicans in outreach efforts to leftists and minorities. Paul has tried to distance himself from the fringe of his party and movement, and grow the GOP with new demographics to make it a true big tent party. He has led this charge for many years. For these outreach efforts, he was greeted with an assassination attempt at his own home by his socialist revolutionary neighbor. The liberal media, who Paul tried so hard to placate throughout his Senate career, cheered on the leftist and avidly propagandized on his behalf, clearly trying…

Hitting Women Back In The Age Of Feminism: Is It Kosher?

in Culture/Politics by

It was a right hook seen and heard around the internet; a viral video, now at the center of controversy, spawning a nationwide debate challenging traditional social norms around gender. THE INCIDENT The incident took place November 4, 2017, at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, Florida. The Miami Hurricanes faced off against the Virginia Tech Hokies. Throughout the game, Miami fan Bridget Frietas was consuming a lot of alcohol. Reports indicate she was running high on ‘liquid courage,’ and began getting belligerent with some fans in her section; screaming a number of profanities. Four officers were called to the section where…

Manhattan Terror Attack Highlights What’s Wrong With U.S. Immigration Policy

in Politics by

Last Tuesday, 29-year-old Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov killed eight people after yelling “Allahu akhbar” and mowing a van into a crowd of pedestrians in Manhattan. The New York City Police deemed it a terrorist attack. According to ABC New York, Saipov entered the United States in 2010 from Uzbekistan on a “Diversity Visa.” Following his entrance to the United States, 23 of Saipov’s family members used him as their “primary contact” to enter the United States. The U.S. gives out 50,000 Diversity Visas every year via the Diversity Visa Lottery. The Diversity Visa Lottery, which began in 1995, does not require…

Anti-Fed Rep. Jeb Hensarling Retiring, Allen West Considering Comeback Bid For Open Seat

in News/Politics by

Rep. Jeb Hensarling (R-TX), the Chairman of the House Financial Services Committee and a staunch critic of the Federal Reserve, has announced that he is retiring from Congress at the end of his term to a statement released to the press. “Today I am announcing that I will not seek re-election to the U.S. Congress in 2018,” Hensarling stated. “Although service in Congress remains the greatest privilege of my life, I never intended to make it a lifetime commitment, and I have already stayed far longer than I had originally planned.” Hensarling was initially considered by President Donald Trump for Secretary…

Thomas Massie “Excited” About Trump Tax Plan: “I Am Going To Vote For This”

in News/Politics by

Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) has announced his support for the Republican tax reform bill currently in the House of Representatives, according to a report by CNN. This is no doubt a boon for the bill, which was expected to face criticism from libertarian-minded Republican lawmakers such as Massie and the members of the Freedom Caucus for not going far enough in reducing the tax burden of Americans. “I am going to vote for this,” Massie stated. “This is a new experience for me to be excited about a bill.” Massie claimed that while he continues to have reservations about the…

Rand Paul Has Potential “Life-Threatening Injuries”, Political Future “Unclear” After Brutal Leftist Attack

in News/Politics by

A savage assassination attempt which took place on Friday has incapacitated Senator Rand Paul (R-KY), according to a report by the Associated Press. According to Paul’s Chief of Staff, Doug Stafford, it is “unclear when Paul will return to work since he is in considerable pain and has difficulty getting around, including flying.” The Senator is currently recovering from “five broken ribs” including “three displaced fractures, which can lead to life-threatening injuries”. Paul was mowing his lawn in Bowling Green, Kentucky, on Friday afternoon when socialist revolutionary Rene Boucher tackled him from behind, forced him to the ground, and began…

Letter From England 3: The Puritan Hypothesis In British Politics

Charlie Elphicke is the Conservative Member of Parliament for Dover and Deal. This makes him my Member of Parliament. On Friday the 3rd November 2017, he discovered – via the media, he says, not from any official notification – that he was suspended from the Conservative Party, and that the Police had been asked to investigate him. No reason for this was given. However, Mr Elphicke’s name was on a confidential list, compiled by Central Office, and immediately leaked on social media, of politicians said to be unable to keep their hands to themselves. Nothing more has been said about…

Rand Paul’s Attacker Exposed As Far-Left Bernie Sanders Supporter

in News/Politics by

One day prior to ANTIFA’s ‘day of rage’ designed to stoke fury against President Donald Trump and his Republican cohorts, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) was accosted at his home by a left-wing terrorist desperate to make the pain real for his political opponents. Rene Boucher, a 59-year-old Bowling Green resident and registered Democrat, allegedly ambushed Paul at his own home on Friday night. According to the warrant issued for Boucher’s arrest, the brutal assault left Paul with cuts to the nose and mouth area, as well as with potential rib injuries resulting in him having trouble breathing. Boucher is now…

A Muslim Ban Is Logical, Moral, Even Libertarian

in Philosophy/Politics by

CNN’s Jake Tapper wanted to know if there was anything that could have prevented the murderous rampage, in Manhattan, by a Muslim immigrant, who had been recruited to live in America for no good reason. Once upon a time that was known as a rhetorical question. To ask the question would have been to answer it. Broadcaster Mark Levin was no less obscurantist. You can’t bring certain individuals like the culprit, Uzbek Sayfullo Saipov, into the US, because … of their governments, Levin raged on Fox News. There’s no way to vet individuals from chaotic countries with ineffective governments. Sure,…

Simple But Difficult Solutions To The Problem Of Islamic Terrorism

in Politics by

The recent terror attack in New York City is like every other terror attack to have occurred over the past few years in the West. It was preventable, the assailant was a Muslim, and next to nothing will be done to thwart a future attack of the same nature. There are things that could be done to mitigate the risk of this happening again, but there exists a staggering lack of testicular fortitude in the halls of power, one that puts political correctness ahead of national security. Lives are now less important than words and in a climate of cowardice…

All Quiet On The Judicial Front

in Politics by

On Monday, October 30, 2017, special counsel Robert Mueller brought official charges against Paul Manafort without ever completing an investigation into the collusion of President Trump and Vladimir Putin. He was forced to concoct something in a hurry after it became known that it was Hillary Clinton who paid for the false dossier on Trump which triggered the beginning of the Russian hysteria. Mueller is the former director of the FBI and kept under wraps the deal of the sale of American uranium mines to Russia and Hillary Clinton’s participation in the matter. Manafort is accused of laundering money, evading…

Do you know who Julius and Ethel Rosenberg were? Do you know what they did? Do you know what happened to them? I’ll save you a trip to Wikipedia: They sold us out to the Rooskies and when we caught them, we sent them to the chair. Those were the days. Professional bullsh-t artists like Alan Dershowitz will peddle all manner of oxymoronic excuses for the Rosenbergs, such as the ludicrous notion that they were both guilty and framed simultaneously. But the bottom line is this: They betrayed the United States of America, and they received exactly what they had…

Attorney General Jeff Sessions Doesn’t Believe In The Tenth Amendment

in Law/Politics by

Federal government officials who believe in the Constitution and limited government are generally a rarity. In modern American politics, the federal level is expected to do most things in society. Lower level governments from state to municipal are merely administrative extensions to the will of the top. It’s the type of structure that is contrary to the vision laid out by our founders, and the natural downfall of any republic. In recent decades, this has accelerated. In the post-9/11 America, former President George W. Bush used the tragic terrorist attacks of September 11th, 2001 to massively grow the federal government.…

Rand Paul To Join GOP “Civil War”, Support “Constitutional” Candidates In 2018 Republican Primaries

Rand Paul is planning to join the uprising against the establishment by endorsing candidates in the upcoming 2018 Senate primaries, according to a Sunday interview with MSNBC‘s Kasie Hunt. Paul described a “civil war with the GOP”, between establishment elements and those aligned with the Republican grassroots. “I’ll be part of this – I’m going to be involved with primaries around the country,” Paul said, suggesting he will play a role in the 2018 revolt against the Senate establishment. Asked if he would endorse challengers to incumbent Senators, he made clear that he is “not going to be opposing colleagues…

Democrats Use Illegal Immigrant As Cheap Political Prop To Further Anti-Life Agenda

in Politics by

It was billed as a Trump-led war on women and immigrants.  However, wording and facts are integral to getting the whole story. Before we begin, lets hear the backstory. THE BACKSTORY In September, a 17-year-old teen – from somewhere in Central America – attempted to illegally cross into Texas from Mexico.  The undocumented teen was apprehended by U.S. border security and taken into custody. She was transported to a U.S. government-funded shelter. There’s no confirmation if she was traveling alone or with other people. Initial reports indicate she had no family traveling with her and none were living close to the facility where…

The Evolution Of Anti-Trumpism

in Politics by

In the beginning was the word, and the word was that Trump is Putin’s marionette.  And there is a secret collusion between Putin and Trump.  Then we were assured that not Trump himself, but his close associates were involved in a criminal conspiracy with the Kremlin.  This narrative soon was replaced by the story that Trump’s men had no criminal ties with the Russians.  Instead, they suspiciously met them often and even dared (what a horror!) to talk to them on the phone to do business with them, like selling inexpensive condos in Florida to Russian oligarchs at inflated prices.…

Rand Paul: I’ve Spent More Hours With The President Than Any Other Senator

in News/Politics by

Sen. Rand Paul has preemptively thrown his support in the 2020 presidential race to incumbent President Donald Trump, during a Sunday interview with MSNBC with Kasie Hunt where he opened up about his close relationship with the President. Rand Paul noted that while he had opposed Trump’s position on numerous issues over the past few months, “we still have a very good relationship because I don’t attack him personally”. Paul criticized the “high-mindedness” of Republican Senators such as Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ), Sen. Ben Sasse (R-NE), and Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN), who choose to “condemn the President’s character”, despite being far from…

America Lost The Cold War

in Politics/World by

Upon reading the title of this article, you were likely confused, if not gobsmacked by the idea. “‘America lost the Cold War?!’ Absurd!” I can hear you saying. And indeed, the very thought of it seems pretty absurd–after all, The USA is still around, and the Soviet Union has long since collapsed. That should summarily disprove the very thesis of this article…right? As you could probably assume, I am going to be arguing contrary to that fact, mainly due to one reason: The Cold War was allegedly never supposed to be about defeating The Soviet Union…so much as it was…

Paul Manafort: Political Prisoner Of The Deep State

Paul Manafort, the long-time lobbyist and GOP operative who briefly led Donald Trump’s campaign for president last year, surrendered himself to FBI headquarters today. Special investigator Bob Mueller is likely trying to make an example of Manafort to coerce him into turning on his former boss. According to a New York Times report, the particular charges are unclear at this time. In addition to Manafort, Rick Gates turned himself in as well. Gates and Manafort are long-time business associates, and Gates’ name was found in documents believed by investigators to show wrongdoing. “Gates became a point of interest in the…

Justice Department Changes Stance On Lois Lerner Scandal Under Trump Administration

in Politics by

A scandal that rocked the Internal Revenue Service and the political right was frequently brushed aside by Democrats. The view of the Democratic Party and its aligned politicians was that it was a politically motivated attack that was overblown for partisan purposes. While they were right about it being politically motivated, it was only partisan in nature because the government under a Democratic administration made it that way. The Justice Department predictably failed to do its job and advance justice under the Obama administration. Despite Lois Lerner and the IRS using tax law to attack political opponents, nothing was ever…

Why Gary Johnson Is Wrong About The System Coming Down To Two Parties

in Philosophy/Politics by

The popular two-term Republican Governor turned two-time failed Libertarian presidential candidate recently revealed that the third time is not a charm. In a Fox Business interview, he stated that he would not be running for office again in the next election. While many libertarians may breathe a sigh of relief after his poor showing in the last election cycle, he made another statement that is interesting. The two-time Libertarian Party candidate for President of the United States stated that everything does boil down to the parties. Essentially, because he couldn’t break through, Johnson thinks that it’s impossible for a third…

Gary Johnson Officially Rules Out Running Again In 2020

in News/Politics by

In New Mexico, Gary Johnson enjoyed strong electoral success. As a Republican candidate running for Governor against a Democratic incumbent in 1994, he won with just under 50 percent of the vote. This number would increase by about five percent in the re-election cycle. His popularity would lead him to run for President as a Republican, before dropping out of the two-party system to join the Libertarian Party. Third parties do not enjoy much of any success at the federal level in the United States. If anyone outside of the two-party system does manage to succeed outside of the machine,…

Senators Bob Corker And Jeff Flake Are Political Showboats

in Politics by

Political hyperbole is nothing new in history. Since the earliest of elections, political opponents have spoken ill of each other and gotten quite heated. Even in recent years, excessive hyperbole and overblown insults are the norm. Former President George W. Bush was often compared to Adolf Hitler, despite the fact he didn’t murder millions of people or consolidate his country into a total dictatorship. Former President Barack Obama was often compared to a number of socialist and communist tyrants in history, despite never quite reaching the extremes of the murderous and tyrannical. And now it is Donald Trump’s turn in…

Deranged Congressional Black Caucus Member Makes Terrorist Threats Against President Trump

in News/Politics by

A lot is made of the escalation of partisanship and tension in Washington D.C. Violence is rising with mass shootings, riots, out-of-control protests gone wrong, and threats among even politicians. As politicians exit Washington D.C. into retirement to get away from the madness, they’re sounding the alarm on these unprecedented times. The problem with this criticism is it is often entirely one sided. The blame for the rise in tension and violence has been solely placed at the feet as President Donald Trump over the course of the last year.

The Declassified JFK Files And The Assassination Blame Game

in History/Politics by

History is always changing over time. As perspectives shift and fresh minds assess old information, events are judged from varying points of view. Sometimes history is even lucky enough to benefit from new information and these nuggets can fill in the blanks. But sometimes, we get remarkable insight and a treasure trove of information. This is shown by the recently declassified files relating to the assassination of former President John F. Kennedy. While there was no bombshell about government involvement, additional shooters or confirmation of some other conspiracy theory, history has been updated and expanded a bit. An interesting tidbit…

Recent Dossier Revelations Show Democrats To Be Hypocrites On Foreign Influence

in Politics by

The narrative has been fairly consistent since businessman Donald Trump was elected to the White House. At best, he was boosted by a foreign government and his inner associates may have sought the help of the Russians. At worst, the President himself could be compromised. These are very real concerns Democrats have had for months. News such as Donald Trump Jr. meeting with Russian officials to gain dirt on Hillary Clinton provoked national outrage. The mainstream media lost its mind as prominent Democratic politicians and progressive activists all sounded the alarm. Regardless of whether Trump Jr’s move was right or…

Rep. Justin Amash Slams Sellout Republicans Who Support Deficit Spending

While social issues and certain philosophical differences separate Democrats and Republicans on the spectrum, in terms of power, they agree on a great deal. There can never be too much power and money in Washington D.C. This was all supposed to change, however, at least for the Republican Party. In response to the rise of former President Barack Obama, the tea party movement rose to prominence pushing a limited government message that centered around fiscal conservatism. Many believed that spending was out of control and the debt was sinking any prosperity this country could hope to find. Congressman Justin Amash…

Congressman Thomas Massie Rightfully Votes Against Otto Warmbier Act

in News/Politics by

Congress has a habit of giving favorable names to legislation it deems necessary to pass, but names that can not always be honest to the truth. Take the Patriot Act for example. Introduced in the aftermath of the tragic September 11th attacks, the title implies patriotism at a time when the country needed it most. Beyond the title, the legislation itself was anything but patriotic. These are the games Congress plays. They know how to deceive the American public. So when the Otto Warmbier Act hit the floor, it was expected to pass without resistance. For the most part, it…

Hollywood is being torn apart by numerous allegations of sexual harassment involving Harvey Weinstein, who was a prominent figure before his fall from grace. Numerous women have stepped forward describing various instances of sexual acts that were not consented to. Weinstein has been blacklisted across Hollywood as organizations and individuals alike cut ties. For conservatives, this became a moment to seize on the hypocritical nature of Hollywood liberalism.

The Tax Increase In Reform’s Clothing

How George W. Bush Went From Liberal Pariah To Hero

in Politics by

Eight years of the Bush Administration and liberals across America had more than enough of George W. Bush and Dick Cheney. The President and Vice President at the time, respectively, had reinvented American foreign policy in the aftermath of the September 11th attacks. Although intervention abroad wasn’t exactly new, the War on Terror took things to a new level. With this new emphasis on combating terrorism, domestic policies changed as well. The surveillance state grew significantly and the Bill of Rights eroded. Because of all these developments, liberals called the former President names such as Hitler. Antiwar protests were numerous…

Justin Amash Upholds Jeff Flake’s Sorry Legacy In The House

Yesterday, Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) announced his retirement. Flake, one of the biggest hypocrites and disappointments of the Senate in recent years, thought he could help his political ambitions by opposing Donald Trump. He postured against Trump by constantly visiting Mosques, rubbing elbows with Planned Parenthood, and echoing Democratic talking points. He thought this would put him on the path for the Presidency; instead, it put him on the unemployment line. Unfortunately for libertarians and free market conservatives, a man believed to be their champion has adopted Flake’s poor strategy in the House, and it could lose him his seat…

Is The Supreme Court Really The Ultimate Arbiter Of The Constitution?

Americans today consider the Supreme Court to be the final arbiter of the Constitution. Politicians and voters alike will fight tooth and nail over legal questions facing the judicial system, even criticizing Supreme Court rulings when initially handed down. But give a Supreme Court decision enough time and Americans eventually acquiesce. The question becomes “settled.” From the banning of prayer and Bible reading in public schools in the 1960s to the recent forced recognition of same-sex “marriage” in all 50 States, the Court’s decisions reign supreme. However, the Supreme Court’s rulings do not enforce themselves. They carry weight because State…

Christmas trees are being renamed holiday trees, despite the tree festivity being clearly associated with Christmas. “Merry Christmas” greetings are morphing into “Happy Holidays,” out of fear someone may be offended by a positive greeting that refers to a specific holiday.

Can President Trump And Rand Paul Save Healthcare?

in Politics by

Last week, Donald Trump signed a new executive order facilitating more flexibility for consumers of health insurance. The order allows for more flexibility in purchasing insurance across state lines, and greater freedom for both small businesses and groups of consumers in creating “association health plans” (AHPs). In theory, this will broaden access to the benefits currently enjoyed only by those with employment-based insurance, and other types of group insurance. The order also paves the way for healthcare reforms long favored by Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) who believes the reforms will help bring down healthcare costs.

The Liberty Conservative Endorses Josh Hawley In Missouri Senate Race

in News/Politics/Press Releases by

The Liberty Conservative is proud to announce that it is endorsing Josh Hawley, the current Attorney General of Missouri, for U.S. Senate. Incumbent Senator Claire McCaskill has shown herself to bee a strident opponent of liberty at every turn. During her time in office, she has consistently backed indefinite detention of American citizens, wasteful federal stimulus bills, bailouts, and tax hikes. It is very clear that she does not represent the interests of the people of Missouri, but rather, the entrenched Washington elite that bankrolls her campaigns. It is thereby imperative that she is replaced in 2018 with someone who…

Why Wouldn’t Trump Want Hillary Clinton To Run Again?

The latest stunt has once again involved Twitter, and this time feeds rumors that his former opponent Hillary Clinton would challenge him again in 2020.

Liberals Demonstrate Anti-Humanitarian Hypocrisy By Supporting Illegal Immigrant Abortions

in Culture/Politics by

Immigration is a hot button issue. The rise of candidate Donald Trump and his ascension to the White House escalated the controversy surrounding illegal immigration. Under the previous administration of Barack Obama, those who resided here illegally were given greater leniency as undocumented immigrants. When Trump criticized those who could not enter our country lawfully, he was torn to shreds for it by the liberal press. For many pro-illegal immigration liberals, this is a humanitarian issue. Laws regarding immigration are irrelevant when lives are at stake. The issue is a humanitarian issue, but the complicated legal issue runs much deeper…

Libertarianism And The Political Mainstream

in Philosophy/Politics by

Libertarianism has had an interesting relationship with the political mainstream over the last year. After years of being relegated to the fringes of political discourse, it was brought into the fold with the rise of former Congressman Ron Paul. While not everyone agreed with his views, many supported him for his consistency and honesty. His contribution to the liberty movement is perhaps the greatest, and many seem to have forgotten why. Paul approached his presidential campaigns the same way as he did his congressional career. It was never about the accolades, awards, legislative achievements, or history of having a big…
