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

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

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. The mainstream media has been caught with false information numerous times in just the past year alone, which has led President Trump and allies to label bad publications and networks as fake news.… Keep Reading

Netflix’s ‘The Punisher’ Is Newest Hollywood Vehicle To Promote Gun Control Agenda

On Nov. 17, Netflix will debut The Punisher on its streaming service. Having already been foreshadowed in other Marvel programs, The Punisher is about a vigilante named Frank Castle who goes outside the law to dole out punishment to evil doers using military weapons. Leading actor Jon Bernthal indicated in a recent interview that the show will push a gun control agenda. “I hope, more than anything else, that people will recognize the gravity of this problem, and I’m just hoping a dialogue will be opened,” Bernthal said during an interview with the USA Today. Bernthal hopes that The Punisher… Keep Reading

The Market Has Spoken: Anti-Trump Hatemonger Chelsea Handler Axed By Netflix

After two seasons, alleged comedian Chelsea Handler is losing her Netflix talk show. Coming from cable television considered an up-and-coming personality, Handler descended into a desperate and pathetic Trump critic – alienating many of her followers and removing any comedic value from her material. Handler isn’t stopping her hate-filled campaign against Trump though. She is doubling-down and saying that her activist persona is now priority number one after getting canned. “I’ve decided not to return for another season of Chelsea, and instead devote as much time as I can to becoming a more knowledgeable and engaged citizen and to focus… Keep Reading

North Korea Releases Doctored Propaganda Depicting Attack On United States

Tensions between the United States and North Korea are without question at an all-time high. After years of diplomatic concessions to the North Koreans, the Trump Administration has altered course on foreign policy and adopted a much more aggressive approach. “Rocket Man,” as President Donald Trump has dubbed North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, has not responded well. With missiles being shot over Japan and the United States flying jets over North Korean territory as demonstrations of force, tensions are escalating to dangerous levels. The possibility for military action or even full scale war has appeared possible for some time… Keep Reading

Dr. Jimmy Kimmel?

America is no stranger to celebrities flaunting their politics. The entertainers we see on our television screens and in the movie theaters often become elitists in their perspectives. For this, their money and their name are often used by politicians looking to advance an agenda. More often than not, the beneficiaries of these celebrity activists are the political left. Hollywood in general has developed a reputation for being agents of the Democratic Party. In recent history, the number one achievement of the Democratic Party is the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, otherwise known as Obamacare. So it’s only natural… Keep Reading

Actor Participating In Anti-Trump Propaganda Video Was Accused Of Incest

Iconic Hollywood actor Morgan Freeman appeared in a propaganda film released this week propagating neo-McCathyist lies against President Trump and Russia to delegitimize last year’s election results. Considering the man’s checkered past, it is no surprise that he would embark on such a disreputable campaign. Freeman was accused years ago of having a bizarre incestuous relationship with his now deceased step grand-daughter. Back in 2009, Freeman failed his wife, Myrna, and was in the process of abandoning their relationship of 25 years. Many outlets reported that he left Myrna to become romantically involved with E’Dena Hines, Freeman’s step grand-daughter who… Keep Reading

Climate Change Alarmists Put Politics Before People During Hurricane Disasters

Tragedies and disasters are difficult topics for discussion. As they happen, people are displaced and it can even result in the loss of life. Both natural and man-made instances can be troubling for society to address. When do we address the situation and when do we discuss prevention in the future? The recent string of hurricanes is no change. Hurricane Harvey in Texas and now Hurricane Irma in Florida have renewed the climate change debate. With Hurricane Jose touching down across the east coast, this will only intensify. If there is indeed an issue regarding climate change, a scientific debate… Keep Reading

Joseph Goebbels: Hitler’s PHD

From its beginnings, academics abroad, and for a time within Germany, attacked the Nazi regime’s appeal to the uneducated, ignorant, and mindless as a reflection of those who peopled Hitler’s dictatorship in general and his inner circle in particular. This had a basis in reality, for among Heinrich Himmler, Martin Bormann, Herman Goering, it was only the former who had some type of post-secondary education. But Himmler’s was the equivalent of what is called today “a trade school,” as his chief focus was on agronomy, which he did not receive a degree for. Apart from Albert Speer, who attended graduate… Keep Reading

Claud Cockburn: Pioneer Of The Mainstream Media

Conservatives today locate the origins of the “mainstream media” in the Watergate and Vietnam era; when every reporter since has wanted to have the presidency-toppling effect of a Woodward and Bernstein. But from Watergate on, the presidencies that reporters have wanted toppled have been exclusively Republican ones. Much of this partisanship had to do with the inclusion of New Leftist ideologues, ironically once anti-establishment toward the press, burrowing into the profession and the academia that trains future journalists. Conservatives are certainly correct that the profession today is dominated by leftists who never left the late sixties, where objectivity was an… Keep Reading

Ludwig Von Mises Understood “Meme Magic”

One of the most consistent themes through the works of Ludwig von Mises is the role ideas play in shaping society. As he wrote in Theory and History: “Thoughts and ideas are not phantoms. They are real things. Although intangible and immaterial, they are factors in bringing about changes in the realm of tangible and material things.” How those ideas are transmitted has changed dramatically over time: from reliance on the spoken word, to the spread of print, to the rise of television, and to today’s digital word. Even within each era, new forms of communication have arisen. For example,… Keep Reading

The Alt-Right Becomes New Pop Culture Scapegoat Of The Trump Era

When President Obama was in office, there was no shortage of portrayals in popular culture demonizing conservatives and libertarians. Patriots were regularly cast as hate-filled terror threats in television, video games, movies, and media outlets. In the age of President Trump, a new scapegoat du jour has emerged in the alt-right. The plot to a currently unreleased video game, Far Cry 5 shows how the propaganda narratives are shifting in the age of Trump. The game is set in Montana, a well-known hot spot for patriots as well as the home of the alt right’s most infamous provocateur Richard Spencer. The… Keep Reading

Fake News: The Alibi Of Tyrants

A few days ago, Hillary Clinton gave a speech on Capitol Hill to pay homage to outgoing Senator Harry Reid. It should have been a happy occasion; Senator Reid’s tenure in congress has been a blight on our nation for decades, we should celebrate his departure from government. But instead, Mrs. Clinton took it as an opportunity to condemn an outbreak of “fake news” sweeping the nation and she was careful to characterize her concerns as being solely humanitarian. Lives are at risk, she says. Admonitions about humanity aside, Mrs. Clinton and the Democratic Party are, in truth, particularly outraged… Keep Reading
