Renegade Party: A New Home For Conservative Rebels?

in Politics by

After being blasted on Breitbart as a “Republican spoiler” and “renegade Jew” for refusing to support GOP presumptive nominee Donald Trump, founder and editor of the Weekly Standard, Bill Kristol, is firing back. Taking in stride the comments from the Trump-adoring media outlet, Kristol recently purchased the web domain www.RenegadeParty.com and created the twitter account @RenegadeParty. I've bought https://t.co/xKmuMgr8Eh. Redirects (for now) to https://t.co/Np2BpY3HMA. Ducks all in a row. All that's needed now: a candidate. — Bill Kristol (@BillKristol) May 17, 2016   https://twitter.com/RenegadeParty/status/732676451376365568 Since the rise of Trump, voices on the right have been advocating for a true conservative to…

Students For Rand Director Cliff Maloney To Lead Young Americans For Liberty

in Politics by

The liberty movement received very exciting news today, as Cliff Maloney Jr announced that he has been promoted to the Executive Director position at Young Americans for Liberty (YAL), the largest libertarian youth organization in the country. Cliff brings a wealth of experience from within the liberty movement, most recently as the national director of “Students for Rand”, Rand Paul’s youth outreach campaign. Students for Rand was one of the parts of the campaign that worked best, organizing over 500 chapters and creating a nationwide campus apparatus. Before this Cliff was a regional director for YAL after having been the Pennsylvania…

The Ghetto: Coming To a Suburb Near You

in Politics by

Not content to be sidelined by the campaign to elect his successor, lame duck President Barack Obama is preparing another attack on the American dream. This time around, Obama and Secretary of Housing and Urban Development (and probable running mate for Hillary Clinton) Julian Castro aim to punish America’s suburban communities for their success by using a government scheme, drawn directly from United Nations Agenda 21, to move people from large urban areas to the suburbs in order to remedy a “lack of diversity” in those suburban areas. As reported in the New York Post, “Hillary’s rumored running mate, Housing…

Kerry And Obama: Get Ready For a Borderless World

in Politics/World by

Secretary of State John Kerry, keen to stem the rising tide of nationalism that has propelled Donald Trump’s candidacy for the Republican nomination for President, warned college graduates to prepare for a “complex and borderless world” during a commencement speech before Northeastern University graduates, while President Barack Obama told graduating students at Rutgers University that building walls will not change our increasingly interconnected world. Kerry, speaking to graduating students from Northeastern University in Boston, took a not-so subtle jab at Trump, specifically at his call for the construction of a wall along the border with Mexico, while also pushing the…

Where We Go From Here: The Rising Stars Of The Liberty Movement

in Politics by

Donald Trump has, in the last two weeks, wrapped up the 2016 Republican presidential nomination and ensured what many are calling “the worst election of our lifetimes” by making this a Trump vs Clinton election. When faced with such a prospect, combined with the embarrassing ineptitude of the Libertarian Party as they attempt to choose a nominee, it would be very easy for Liberty Conservatives across the country to become cynical. After all, this is objectively the toughest moment we’ve faced as a movement since Ron Paul’s 2008 presidential run sparked years of constant growth. That being said, rather than…

Obama, Rhodes, Iranian Nukes And Presidential Lies

in Politics/World by

It’s For Your Own Good Elected on a wave of goodwill, hope and change, the Obama administration sought out opportunities to not only “fundamentally transform America,” but to “restore America’s standing in the world.” These efforts included changes to the ways the administration addressed both allies and enemies alike. High up on the Obama regime’s list – even before the 2008 election – was outreach to the rogue state of Iran, well known as the predominant sponsor of terrorism in the Middle East and around the globe, and a threat for nuclear proliferation. Early on in the Obama tenure, domestic…

A Repudiation Of The Bush Doctrine And The Trotskyist Neocons

in Philosophy/Politics by

As Donald Trump becomes the presumptive Republican nominee for President, many in the party establishment have indicated their unwillingness to endorse him, claiming his views run counter to the modern “Conservative” movement. Chief among those who repeat the slogan #neverTrump are former Presidents George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush, whose son and brother Jeb was soundly rejected by Republican primary voters, as well as South Carolina Senator Lindsay Graham (who barely registered in primary polling), failed Presidential candidate Mitt Romney, and Neoconservative talking heads like Bill Kristol and George Will. Part of their vehement opposition to Trump’s candidacy stems from, whether…

Donald Trump, Libertarians, And The Potential “Victorious Defeat.”

in Politics by

In the 1856 election, the country was bitterly divided between the Democratic Party – which had dominated the office of the Presidency since Thomas Jefferson – and the new parties that came about from the destruction of the Whigs. In 1848, members of the Whig party had been branching off and forming third parties, mostly due to the contentious issue of slavery in the western territories. In 1848, former Whigs formed the Free Soil Party, the platform of which revolved around the issue of territorial slavery. In the 1850s, the anti-Irish immigrant American Party (known colloquially as the “Know Nothings”)…

The Libertarian Party Vs. Austin Petersen

in Philosophy/Politics by

On the night of the first ever nationally televised Libertarian Party presidential debate, myself and a small group of fellow writers, editors, and activists were invited by Libertarian Party candidate Austin Petersen to an after party of sorts in downtown New York City. It was history in the making – for the first time, national news had covered a debate between candidates seeking a nomination for this party, which was not one of the two viable political parties in the Republicans and Democrats (though if the state of those factions as of 2016 counts as “viable” today, I’m not sure…

A Choice Between Good And Evil

in Culture/Politics by

Human beings, regardless of race, color or creed, are blessed with the innate ability to sense when danger is approaching, or when something is just plain wrong. Some people refer to it as a “gut-feeling,” “instinct,” or “sixth sense” when, in fact, it is so much more than that. One can look to other examples in nature to see that our so-called gut-feeling is not uncommon. How does a bird, which has never flown before, know to fly south for the winter? How does a salmon know to swim upstream to spawn? We are the product of all those who came before…

Austin Petersen: Sugar Daddy?

in Politics by

With Ted Cruz having dropped out of the Republican presidential primary, Libertarian Party candidate Austin Petersen is looking to capitalize and bring in Cruz’s disaffected supporters who are now looking for an alternative to Donald Trump. With the Never Trump movement reaching a fever pitch and conservatives across the country looking for alternatives, it would appear on the surface that this has the potential to succeed. That being said, a new scandal has broken which may complicate Austin’s outreach to conservative voters. Photos of what is allegedly Petersen’s account on “SugarDaddie.com“, a website which aims to help attractive young women…

The GOP Is Finally Dead. What That Means For Real Conservative Voters

in Philosophy/Politics by

Yesterday, the Republican Party gasped its final breath as Ted Cruz, the candidate I named in my last article as the only remaining viable option in the party, dropped out of the 2016 race for the GOP nomination. Rand Paul supporters had for months been disparaging this man’s campaign for no other tangible reason other than the fact that he wasn’t Rand Paul. I criticized this idle purism at the time, and I implicate it now as the cause for Cruz’s narrow-but-meaningful losses in votes and delegates that ultimately left Trump just enough in the lead to count Cruz’s campaign…

Intolerant Social Justice Zombies Riot In California: Welcome To Aztlan

in Politics by

As the Republican candidates for President move to California in anticipation of the state’s primary on June 7th, front-runner Donald Trump was greeted with a pair of near riots as activists suggest larger protests will occur if Trump becomes the Republican nominee. “I think it’s going to get worse if he gets the nomination and is the front-runner. I think it’s going to escalate,” said Luis Serrano, an organizer with California Immigration Youth Justice Alliance. “We’re going to keep showing up and standing against the actions and the hate Donald Trump is creating.

Moral Relativism And Jihad

in Culture/Politics by

The work of Americans of good conscience – who also happen to be adherents of the Muslim faith – people like Asra Q. Nomani, Dr. Zuhdi Jasser, and M.J. Khan is being undermined not only by the bloody violence of radical Islam, but of the failure of Western institutions to recognize and address the threat of jihad. We all know why the barbaric savages entered the Paris offices of Charlie Hebdo and brutally murdered a dozen people in early 2015; why attackers murdered 130 in attacks that included Paris’ Bataclan theatre; why a married jihadi couple in San Bernadino gunned down 14 co-workers:…

Conservatives Under Siege – Transgendered Bathrooms And The Brilliance Of The Left’s Decoy Strategy

This article is the first in a three-part series titled “Conservatives Under Siege”. Subscribe to Liberty Conservatives Magazine or follow Joel on Facebook or Twitter to be notified of subsequent articles. From the explosion of outrage and hyperbole that violated my social media newsfeeds in the last two days, I gather that gender-confused individuals are now trying to use bathrooms to which they are not assigned. That’s unfortunate. I expect it to complicate some social norms, and potentially produce awkward situations.  It may even force some businesses or public buildings to go back to the barbaric unisex individual bathrooms still used…

Cruz-Kasich Pact And The Race Ahead

in Politics by

Late Sunday evening, April 24, after the Fox News Presidential Town Hall in Philadelphia, both the campaigns of Sen. Ted Cruz (TX) and Gov. John Kasich (OH) put out similarly crafted joint statements on the future of their campaigns in the upcoming primaries. Common in both of these statements was a willingness to unite the #NeverTrump vote in Indiana around Cruz. Indiana is believed to be a crucial state to keep Trump from acquiring 1237 delegates before the Republican National Convention in mid-July. In return, Cruz campaign has agreed to cease from campaigning in New Mexico and Oregon for Kasich to…

Tim Donnelly, Patriot, Not a Politician Running For Congress In California

in Politics by

April 23rd at Riley’s Farm, at a fundraiser billed “A Night with the Stars”,  8th California congressional candidate Tim Donnelly had endorsements from such notables as Comedian Rob Schneider,  “Dallas” Actress Morgan Brittney,  “Politichicks” Ann-Marie Morell and Michelle Malkin.   At the dinner several firearms were raffled off and Mr. Donnelly mixed with the ethnically diverse crowd who embrace his conservative ideals in what is the 87th most conservative district in the country. One such person was Anthony Harris who commented on why he supports Donnelly against the establishment. “I’ve been supporting Tim Donnelly since he ran for governor.  Unfortunately he…

Bad News For Social Democrats – Koch Brothers Don’t Control The Republican Party

in Politics by

Charles Koch and his brother do not control the Republican party, but the social democrats who despise them might begin wishing they did. During a recent interview with Jonathan Karl of ABC news, Charles Koch sat down to discuss his frustration with the election, declaring that he believes the system is rigged, but definitely not by him. Estimating that in a 5 trillion-dollar economy, the corporate tax code alone is costing Americans $1.5 trillion, he vehemently opposes laws that support corporatism. “A great majority [of the benefits] are going to the wealthy,” Koch said, echoing the statement made by the interviewer. “The…

Wake Up, Rand Paul Fans: Ted Cruz Is Your Only Hope

in Politics by

The results are in – Ted Cruz is now the only remaining candidate in the 2016 Republican primary poised to stop Donald Trump from nabbing the GOP nomination. I cannot say I am as thrilled by this news as the diehard Cruz fans must be (as I do not count myself among their ranks for reasons I will explain later), but I still find solace in the thought that Trump still has a worthy usurper – and he isn’t half bad. Now that seem like light praise, but I am a believer in incremental change being a serious part of…

Big Brother’s National DNA Database: Another Orwellian Threat To Civil Liberties

in Politics by

State law enforcement officials and the FBI have invested a significant amount of resources on creating a national DNA database under the guise of solving more crimes. In reality, the creation of such a database is another example of the government posing a threat to our civil liberties, and continues our country’s trajectory towards an Orwellian police/surveillance state. While some may have genuine interests in keeping track of sex offenders and other violent criminals, the state has its own ulterior motives – namely, the tracking and surveillance of its citizens. In May 2009, the number of individuals included in the…

Bernie Sanders, Karl Marx, And “Democratic Socialism.”

in Philosophy/Politics by

Despite his bleak prospects for securing the Democrat nomination, Bernie Sanders has amassed a popularity that indicates his ideas are far from dead. Sanders is a Socialist, and young people in particular love it. But, they are quick to remind us, he is not like the brutal Marxist regimes we read about in our history books…he’s a DEMOCRATIC Socialist. We are told that this is a considerable difference. But is Democratic Socialism so different from historic Marx’s Socialism? Let’s take a look at the history of these ideas: The term “Socialism” was coined by Pierre Leroux, a Saint-Simonian (referring to…

The Divide Of CPAC 2016

in Politics by

A unified conservative front was nowhere to be found at the Conservative Political Action Conference this year. While standing in the two-hour line to get into the ballroom on Friday, I watched as a young woman was introducing herself to a group of students. The students wore “Dump Trump” pins on their CPAC lanyards and were vocal about their dislike of the candidate. Hesitantly, the young woman wove into the conversation a question that seemed to be lingering on her mind for a while: “Would you guys consider being friends with someone who supports Donald Trump?” She was a Trump supporter, and…

Austin Petersen: “Ron Paul Sounds Like He Hates America”

“The more I listen to Ron Paul the more I think he actually despises this country” -Austin Petersen Austin Petersen has emerged as one of the frontrunners for the Libertarian Party nomination, campaigning as a son of the Ron Paul revolution who hopes to bring conservative leaning libertarians into the tent in order to create a broad enough coalition to win the Libertarian nomination. Petersen has been fairly articulate in the debates, arguing that he will be the man to bring on significant numbers of Republican voters should Donald Trump be the Republican nominee.

Where Have All The CPAC Libertarians Gone?

in Politics by

The halls of the Conservative Political Action Conference were not humming with the excitement of liberty as it has been in years past. The Conservative Political Action Conference in 2015 was as close to a libertarian dream as the conference has ever come. Enthusiastic young libertarians, optimistic that liberty would prevail in the 2016 election, proudly sported their Stand With Rand shirts draped in pro-liberty stickers and pins. Panels were presented incorporating libertarian ideas, such as the Privacy versus Security debate with Judge Andrew Napolitano and The Red Pill or The Blue Pill?

What Went Wrong With Rand Paul 2016

It has been a little over a month since Kentucky Senator Rand Paul dropped out of the presidential race, but for liberty activists across the country it has seemed like an eternity as we watch what has become a very depressing primary process unfolding. At this point most in the liberty movement are simply trying to gain a sense of what happened and how to fix it. Some have argued that this was the cycle of Trump and there was absolutely nothing that we could have done to change the outcome in the end, and that even Ron Paul would have…

Media Matters: Leading The War On Free Speech

Continuing a campaign against “hate speech”, the White House propaganda arm known as Media Matters has pushed CNN to cut ties with Donald Trump ally and former adviser Roger Stone following comments Stone made on Twitter regarding CNN political analyst Ana Navarro. Stone, who was labeled a “dirty trickster”, “racist” and “sexist” by Media Matters, was a regular guest on CNN until being cut from the network earlier this week. “He will no longer appear as a guest on CNN” a spokesperson told POLITICO.

A Winning Ticket For The GOP Presidential Nomination

5 Tips For Debating Your Liberal Professor

in Politics by

By this point in the semester, you have probably realized that one of your professors is a raging liberal disguising himself or herself as an everyday professor. Here are five tips when debating your liberal professors: 1. Always be polite and respectful. It is important when debating a topic, especially emotional political topics, that you keep your cool at all times. Raising your voice or getting irrational in some way takes away from the validity of your argument. Listen intently while your professor responds and do not interrupt or try to speak over them. The calmer and more level-headed you…

Some People Just Want To Watch The World Bern.

In your answer, avoid moral irrelevancies like national borders; can we tolerate inequality just because it’s cross-border?

Hasbro And Larry Summers Join The War Against Cash

Iowa Just Destroyed The “Rand Or Nobody” Narrative

in Politics by

Iowa was the final act for a number of presidential candidates, including liberty candidate Sen. Rand Paul – but the reason Paul dropped might come as a shock to many. Though the Rand campaign made many overtures to his father’s base in the final months, Rand Paul did not carry the Iowa libertarian vote. Among the chief victims of the dramatic Ted Cruz win Monday night was the “libertarians won’t vote for Cruz” narrative pedaled for the last year by the Rand Paul campaign. The caucus results have been sliced and diced a hundred ways, and with Sen. Rand Paul’s…

How To Get Forced Into Saying “I Told You So” Without Trying

A couple of weeks ago, I wrote an article for Liberty Conservatives Magazine predicting that the Rand Paul campaign would not see success in terms of voter numbers, but instead would leave a legacy with much larger implications than a short term presidential bid would normally have. I argued that Rand’s maverick approach to not only 2016, but his entire career as a politician thus far would go on to influence politics in a positive, long-term way, and that his supporters (a camp I find myself weaving in and out of depending on the issue at hand) should celebrate that…

Three Reasons Every Libertarian Should Celebrate a Ted Cruz Iowa Win

in Politics by

Much of the libertarian interest in next week’s Iowa Caucuses is focused on Rand Paul – and rightfully so.  Since his apparent decision to drop the middle-of-the-road rhetoric and go full libertarian early this year in the face of declining money and support, many of his father’s sidelined activists have taken renewed interest in his campaign. Rand’s numbers in Iowa have seen a slight uptick, and his campaign has released some impressive organizational numbers. Still, Rand is a longshot to pull off a win in a state where the competing candidacies of Donald Trump and Ted Cruz have reshaped the…

Romanticizing Reagan: Part II – Regulations And Free Trade

Continued from Part I – Taxation and Spending During Ronald Reagan’s presidential campaign, the third of his four pillars of Reaganomics was regulatory reform. Namely, he was on a mission to reduce federal regulations (an applaudable goal). This is, in fact, one of the chief reasons why democrats criticize his presidency; he supposedly spent his tenure recklessly deregulating. In a speech given by Art Laffer, Reagan’s economic advisor, Dr. Laffer mentions a story of Reagan dropping the Code of Federal Regulations on a table to demonstrate its massive size. “Do you remember that?” Laffer asked the audience, “Do you remember…

Among conservatives, Ronald Reagan is held in deific esteem. Find any Republican debate Bingo or drinking game, and his name is certain to be one of the triggers to take a drink. Even among libertarians (of the non-anarchist persuasion), Reagan is still viewed as one of our greatest presidents, if not the greatest outright. The reasons for the romanticization of Reagan are difficult to understand. Ronald Reagan did have some of the best rhetoric when it came to conservative and Libertarian issues, and perhaps this is a good explanation for his appeal. But when you look at his policies as…

Why Rand Paul’s Campaign Will Go Down In History

After all, those who love you most are the best voices to have in your corner when you’re trying to become the next leader of the free world.

It would certainly be hard to find a candidate who is more in touch with the “talk radio” wing of the party than Ted Cruz, and he has tried hard to stake out a position as a conservative truth teller and man of principle in this primary. Despite his background in the Bush administration, he has had some success with this strategy. That being said, libertarians and conservatives…

The Debate Republicans Deserve

As we approach tonight’s Republican debate, sure to be a spectacle similar to the last three awkward attempts to manage the political equivalent of a starting football lineup, it’s worth mentioning that debates don’t have to be this way. Late last week Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal challenged Senator Ted Cruz to debate Obamacare mano y mano in a response to the latter’s assertion that he would debate “anyone, anywhere”.  Though the move was a clear attempt by Jindal to lash his sinking dinghy to the surging Cruz ship, he served the ball directly into Cruz’s court in such a way…
