U.S. Muslims Attempt To Storm Public Offices In 2018 To Combat Trump’s Agenda

President Donald Trump shocked millions when he won higher office calling for stricter immigration controls, including a wall on the southern border as well as a possible Muslim ban. Trump may have won in spectacular fashion, but the backlash remains years later. American Muslims are attempting to increase their representation in politics to combat what they feel is growing anger and resentment against their faith. The vast majority of them are running as Democrats, as noted by the Financial Times, and support open borders as well as a larger government safety net to assist their community. Keep Reading

The Myth Of America’s “Stingy” Welfare State

According to the usual news sources, Donald Trump’s new budget proposal “envisions steep cuts to America’s social safety net” and will “gut social programs.” Most of the cuts were proposed to pave the way for more Pentagon spending.  In truth, Trump’s proposal doesn’t matter, and Congress will set to work piling on more deficit spending for both social programs and for the Pentagon.  But, the debate of “gutting” social programs will no doubt be used to perpetuate, yet again, the myth that the United States is ruled by libertarian social Darwinists who ensure that no more than a few pennies are spent via… Keep Reading

Marxism: The Unwavering, Cancerous Assault On Life, Liberty, And Individualism

Marxism is a cancer that has plagued societies across the globe in one form or another for well over a century, leaving behind a trail of death, destruction, and misery in the most appalling ways imaginable. The tyrants of the 20th century – Lenin, Hitler, Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot, Che, and Castro among others – settled once and for all what happens when the Marxist ideology is unleashed upon the world. Rather than usher in the promised utopia, what occurred was nothing short of hell on earth. Sadly, we were wrong to think that this cancer had been eradicated. Instead,… Keep Reading

Secession — Not Military Intervention — Can Help Venezuela

Not too long ago, President Donald Trump made headlines by suggesting a potential military option in Venezuela in the face of the country’s rapidly decaying political situation. It’s undeniable that Venezuela is suffering a humanitarian and economic crisis of unprecedented proportions all thanks to the socialist policies that the country has experimented with over the past two decades. But a military intervention in Venezuela is likely to be costly and damaging to Americans, while disastrous for Venezuelans. Keep Reading

How Impeachment Will Backfire On Democrats

Most Democrats describe President Donald Trump with a great deal of hyperbole. We’ve apparently never seen a President like this before, and his unstable behavior is cause for panic. Many want to deal with him by removal, and there is a growing number of lawmakers embracing his impeachment. But even with this plan ongoing, Democratic leaders oppose impeaching the President and believe all ongoing investigations should conclude. With all of this said, there still are some Democratic lawmakers who have gone rogue and will continue to do so because their hatred of Trump. Congressman Al Green (D-TX) moved to force… Keep Reading

Venezuelan Collapse Is Golden Opportunity To Showcase American Superiority

Venezuela is not a country with a government, it is a hostage situation. The Maduro regime in Caracas has declared its ransom demands. They are actively robbing their captives, and make no mistake, they are executing many of those captives on a daily basis. Among its top ransom demands, the government in Caracas wants to restructure its enormous and dynamic debt burden. Their state-owned oil apparatus, PDVSA, was once a lucrative slush-fund/money-laundering operation for Maduro and the Cuban proxies in the upper echelons of power in Venezuelan politics. Now, PDVSA is financially underwater and struggling to make good on its… Keep Reading

Robert Mugabe, Socialist Dictator, Removed From Office In Zimbabwe

A bloodless coup has taken place in the troubled African nation of Zimbabwe, as the notoriously cruel despot Robert Mugabe has been forced from office after a 37-year reign of terror that made him one of the most reviled heads of state in the world. Mugabe, 93, ignored a party deadline to resign yesterday before reconsidering and offering a forced resignation today. The military had placed him under house arrest pending his decision. Mugabe has been in power since the country resisted British colonization. Formerly Rhodesia, it was a functioning nation considered the breadbasket of Africa. Once the colonists left,… Keep Reading

Britain’s Bizarre New Class War

Britain is my homeland. For all her flaws that I find in myself and all her greatness that so often I do not, there is a part of me that is forever England. Having lived overseas for some time now, I am in a peculiar position–every time I return home, the landscape is a little different. Is it England that is changing, or I, or both? What I have noticed, is that as ever, the United Kingdom absorbs cultural norms from America, across the gossamer fine Atlantic membrane that separates our civilizations like opiates crossing the blood/brain barrier. Scaremongering about… Keep Reading

The Marxist Archipelago

“Two things are infinite: the Universe and human stupidity; and I’m not sure about the Universe.”  Albert Einstein In the political struggle for man’s superiority over the state (the Right), and supporters of the state’s superiority over man (the Left), we naturally arrive at a final crisis. Why final?  Because the Left seems to have exhausted all of its ammunition, and they have nothing left. From the very beginning, it was clear that Leftist ideas were a dead-end in the development of mankind, although in some cases everything looked quite the opposite on the surface. One of the most dismal… Keep Reading

50 Shades Of American Fascism

Hitler was a very good student. Those who read Mein Kampf will find therein many good words about America. More precisely, not about the whole of America, but about the numerous attempts of the American socialists to change the foundations of the American way of life. The ideas of forced sterilization and forced abortion were adopted by Hitler from the founder of feminism, American socialist Margaret Sanger. Madame Sanger even founded a special clinic to promote mass abortions of black people to reduce their number with the aim of completely eradicating blacks in America. This organization still exists–it is called… Keep Reading

As Socialist Venezuela Crumbles, Their Military Dictator Grovels Beneath The U.S.

Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro has been arrogantly thumbing his nose in the faces of Americans for years, but he is changing his tune after getting hit with economic sanctions. As he struggles to maintain power amidst the collapse of his socialist regime, he suddenly wants to talk to President Trump. “If he (Trump) is so interested in Venezuela, here I am,” Maduro said during a recent three-hour speech. “Mr Donald Trump, here is my hand.” Previously, the socialist despot had been an angry critic of the Trump administration. He even referred to Trump contemptuously as an emperor just last month… Keep Reading

Patriotic Venezuelan Paramilitaries Fail In Attempt To Take Control

A group of armed Venezuelan patriots, led by a former army officer, were unsuccessful in an attempted anti-government rebellion on Sunday, according to reports. In a video released to the public, the leader of the faction, Capt. Juan Caguaripano, declared, “We are united now, more than ever, with the brave people of Venezuela who do not recognize the legitimacy of Nicolás Maduro’s murderous tyranny.” Keep Reading

Why Socialism Works?

Conservatives routinely attack millennial leftists for getting their political knowledge from twitter or the Daily Show rather than actually reading a book. This perception is validated with the “reviews” of Harrison Lievesley’s book “Why Socialism Works,” posted on Amazon. Obvious lefties have praised the work in gushing terms. One called it a “gripping account of this complex ideology” and awarded it “5 stars.” Another reader praised the research involved: “A perfect introduction to the crux of the matter without any messing around. In depth research backs up the argument presented. Top notch.” Another reviewer by the name of Conor Burn… Keep Reading

Oliver Stone Educates And Misleads

I recently had the opportunity to watch The Untold History of the United States by Oliver Stone and, as I’m sure was intended, it was a thought-provoking experience. It is for many reasons a masterpiece of documentary filmmaking. The research behind it left no stone unturned and the archival footage included in the ten-part series is awe-inspiring. It is well written and well narrated by Stone. It is thorough and informative and enlightens the viewer to the many unseemly aspects of governance in the greatest nation in the history of mankind. Less thorough and more friendly than Stone’s treatment of… Keep Reading

Amid Soaring Asylum Requests, House Bill Would Give Amnesty To Venezuelan Illegals

A bipartisan bill introduced in the House of Representatives on Wednesday would give Venezuelan refugees and illegal immigrants a path to legal residency and eventual citizenship in the United States. The bill, called the Venezuelan Refugee Assistance Act, was introduced by Carlos Curbelo (R-FL) and Darren Soto (D-FL). The bill was cosponsored by Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL) and Debbie Wasserman-Schultz (D-FL). “For over a decade, thousands of Venezuelans were forced to flee the brutal Chavez dictatorship, and now, the situation has not improved under his hand-picked successor, Nicolas Maduro,” Curbelo said, citing the socialist government’s political violence. “This bill will allow Venezuelan nationals… 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

Denial And Dudgeon In The Millennial Generation

The following may seem a little harsh, but please keep in mind that everything I’m about to write is out of genuine concern for our friends on the left, particularly those of the millennial generation. They say children are our future and with that in mind, I’ve become increasingly concerned about the mental health and well-being of people my age, and even those who are younger. At first glance, it appears as though our liberal friends have lost their collective mind. My first real memory of politics was watching George H. W. Bush mop the floor with Michael Dukakis back… Keep Reading

Three Myths About Venezuela’s Opposition

Venezuela’s current political crisis has drawn much attention worldwide. The shortages, increasing violence, skyrocketing inflation, and the increasing militarization of its economy are all fixtures of Venezuela’s current national disaster. Opposition movements have naturally arisen in response to Venezuela’s squalid state, with the Democratic Unity Roundtable (MUD) leading the charge against the current ruling class.  Despite the unprecedented awareness of Venezuela’s delicate situation, considerable amounts of disinformation abound both in mainstream media and social media coverage of these events. This article seeks to dispel many of these myths and misconceptions that concern Venezuela and its political opposition. The Venezuelan Opposition is Attempting… Keep Reading

Donald Trump Is No Hugo Chávez

The rise of Donald Trump’s candidacy has generated a strong degree of backlash among the chattering classes worldwide. No stranger to controversy himself, his campaign’s unconventional style has led various experts to draw parallels between Trump and the late Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez. While both Chávez and Trump never shied away from throwing verbal haymakers towards their opponents, the actions that these men have taken in their respective political careers could not be any further apart. The age-old axiom of “actions speak louder than words” is now more relevant than ever in this discussion. These comparisons are not only specious,… Keep Reading

Venezuela’s Economic Collapse: A Process 50 Years In The Making

In recent times, Venezuela has been the object of many headlines across the globe that detail its current economic predicament. Once Latin America’s most stable country, Venezuela is now experiencing a historically unprecedented economic and social collapse. How did such a nation awash with bountiful oil reserves and numerous decades of democratic stability stoop to such levels of misery? The conventional narrative typically points to Hugo Chávez’s arrival to power in 1998 as the main catalyst of Venezuela’s economic decline.  Quantitatively speaking, Chávez’s presidency was responsible for the largest economic downturn in the country’s history. Through an unprecedented number of… Keep Reading

Economics & History: Why This Connection Matters

In a recent article of mine, I debunked the red herring of  the “roads” argument that many modern socialists throw around. It turns out that lately this article has gotten some pretty lively responses from its critical readers. One such commenter was someone I might have expected to be on my side (politically speaking) as he was presumably a libertarian himself, but the road forked for us at economics. It seemed as if this gentleman was an adherent of the Austrian school (a.k.a. the fantasy football of economics), and he had a thing or two to say about my reasoning behind my aforementioned debunking.… Keep Reading

Yes, Socialism Is To Blame For Venezuela’s Collapse

We are routinely being sold on this idea that the solution to poverty is more government power and more regulation. Rarely are any connections made when catastrophic events occur as a result of these policies. Instead of considering the alternative – freedom – they continue to look for government-created solutions when they are the ones who created the problems in the first place. Make no mistake, Venezuela’s economic turmoil is a consequence of the government’s socialist policies. The major tenant of socialism is that a governing power makes all the important decisions on behalf of those whom they claim to help. Socialism operates on the presumption… Keep Reading

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

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… Keep Reading

Freedom Is Everything

Although there is very little on which we agree, Marxists and socialists have provided me with some excellent philosophical discussions.  One such person recently wrote this article in which he attempted to take to task the libertarian concept of freedom.  The piece starts out well enough as he does a decent job describing how libertarians view the concept: “What the libertarians mean by freedom is that the government does not interfere in the lives of private citizens.  If we were freed from government coercion, people would have a good life, because the free market would regulate our lives, and we… Keep Reading
