President Trump to sign executive order restricting refugees from seven countries

Republican President Donald Trump has been active since he took office last Friday. Wasting no time on priorities and fulfilling campaign promises, he has followed through on slamming the brakes on Obamacare enforcement and stepping up against abortion. If there was any doubt as to what kind of President he would be, these doubts are quickly being erased. Another topic appears to be getting addressed now as well, which is immigration and terrorism. According to reports, President Trump is preparing to sign executive orders restricting immigration from Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen. This undoubtedly will cause shockwaves among the… Keep Reading

The Women’s March and sexist assumptions about abortion views

The Women’s March has been an enormous moment in politics and likely will be remembered by history as a prominent moment in political resistance. Across the country and in the nation’s capital, concerned citizens and angered activists are swarming to allow their voices to be heard. Americans are utilizing their right to assemble and speak freely to protest issues that are important to them. With that said, just because they have the right to free speech doesn’t mean there’s a moral justification to what is being spoken. The women’s march is presented as a moment of defiance against Republican President… Keep Reading

President Trump reinstates ban on federal money for international abortion groups

Abortion continues to be a heated topic in American political discourse. Especially now as the Women’s March continues in Washington D.C. and across the country, a woman’s supposed right to abort their children is a hot topic. Though the Supreme Court legalized abortion through the controversial Roe v. Wade decision, conservatives have long fought the procedure they claim is murder. As the Administration of Republican President Donald Trump begins the process of rolling out its agenda, conservatives can find some hope in the abortion procedure being stopped. President Trump has reinstated a policy known as the Mexico City policy. First created by… Keep Reading

The selective outrage over foreign influence in American politics

It almost feels as if the Red Scare is back from the distant pages of history. The dead and gone period has come back for the modern era, with fresh fear of the Russian menace. This time, the nation is gripped with the fear that our presidential election was tampered with. Is President Donald Trump a Russian plant? Was his rise to power aided by a foreign influence, such as the Russian government? The possibilities may very well be there and for many that is a cause for fear. Is this fear justified? Absolutely. American politics should be dictated by… Keep Reading

Nancy Sinatra rips CNN for lying about her position on Trump using her father’s music

CNN has made a name for itself promoting fake news and being an obvious promoter of the left. While the network and others in the mainstream media have long been labeled as liberal-leaning in their bias, the preference for Hillary Clinton was painfully obvious in last year’s presidential election cycle. Now the propaganda machine is targeting Nancy Sinatra, daughter of the late music legend Frank Sinatra. It was announced prior to the inauguration of Republican President Donald Trump that he would be using Frank Sinatra’s song “My Way.” It’s not unusual for politicians to use songs and have a musician object.… Keep Reading

President Trump has formally begun the process of withdrawing from Trans-Pacific Partnership

Throughout the campaign cycle, Republican President Donald Trump repeatedly attacked trade deals and pledged to get the United States out of the controversial Trans-Pacific Partnership. The trade agreement has been a constant political focus for months, with conservatives and libertarians joining President Trump in opposition. Interestingly enough, it was also opposed by progressives such as Senator Bernie Sanders. Opposition to the agreement provides a unique opportunity for various grassroots movements to unite against the political spectrum. Until now, the only thing left was for the President to follow through on one of his biggest campaign promises. Targeting the Trans-Pacific Partnership… Keep Reading

Madonna tells Women’s March protesters she thought about blowing up the White House

The outrage against President Donald Trump continues to boil over. The controversial businessman who recently took over the executive branch has triggered liberals and Never Trump Republicans for a year now, but things have recently escalated. Protesters have been in Washington D.C. for the last few days causing property damage and other violent tactics, resulting in numerous arrests. The violent side of the crowds has been reduced to a mere line in the stories as headlines read like peaceful protests. Celebrities and political figures have flocked to these events to seize the opportunity to further divide the country. Amidst all… Keep Reading

Is Curt Schilling being punished by Baseball Hall of Fame voters for his conservative politics?

In Major League Baseball, the World Series is the big stage and getting there is an incredible feat. Many baseball players have made it, both winning and losing it. While legends have been made by their performances in the Fall Classic, others have been in the events leading up to it. New England and New York sports fans will never forget the 2004 American League Championship series when the Boston Red Sox came back from a 3-0 series deficit to win against the New York Yankees.

NBC has yet to respond to Saturday Night Live writer’s vicious attack on Barron Trump

The rise of businessman Donald Trump from improbable candidate to President of the United States has triggered an entire movement of political paranoia. His style threatens the emotions of those accustomed to standard politics. Instead of being a cheap plastic face with slick hair and manufactured sound bites, he’s an imperfect image and unregulated personality. For many who require the assurance of uneventful normalcy, this is devastating. The result has been relentless attacks. While it is fair to criticize an individual who enters the arena prepared to take heat, there are boundaries. The unfortunate reality is that sometimes spouses get… Keep Reading

Is Barack Obama the worst President in United States History?

For years now, the story of Barack Obama’s presidency, according to conservatives, has been extreme. While it’s clear he’s been a terrible President for a multitude of reasons, many would lead us to believe that Obama is the worst President in United States history. This is an extreme assertion and one that is difficult for anyone knowledgeable about history to support. Even for conservative students of history, this is a point that deserves additional review. Is Barack Obama indeed the worst President of United States history? Let’s explore other candidates for the title. Woodrow Wilson is perhaps the father of modern… Keep Reading

The President Donald Trump era begins

After a year and a half, the longest long shot in American politics has been inaugurated as President of the United States. Republican businessman Donald Trump has officially inherited the White House and the executive branch from Barack Obama, a two-term President and former United States Senator. The months and years ahead will be a rough ride for America in some ways. Democrats appear unwilling to give the President a chance and Republicans are ready for change. Regardless of political affiliation, most can admit that the Trump Administration will bring a new course to American politics. Keep Reading

The Liberty Conservative associate editor attacked by Anti-Trump protesters

For many, the thought of Donald Trump triggers a bitter and intense reaction. Though many of the Never Trump activists claim to be opposed to the vitriolic and violent rhetoric, there seems to be a growing use of the tactic in their own movement. This has been on full display again in Washington D.C., where the inauguration is mere hours away. Reports have noted numerous arrests have occurred as protesters storm the streets. Protesters are starting fires in the street, shouting obscenities, and otherwise projecting an aggressive and negative presence upon the nation’s capital as the transition of power wraps… Keep Reading

Contrary to popular hyperbole, Donald Trump is not the end of America

The inauguration is finally near. After a long year of dragged out politics that got nastier than usual, the next President is preparing to inherit the White House. The transition of power is different in some ways, because the incoming top executive lacks the established political background that most politicians have. But as popular narratives said throughout the election from start to finish, Donald Trump was never going to win. But here we are. Commentary from liberal sources and other Never Trump people would lead us to believe that the world is in fact ending. Everyone has their own victim… Keep Reading

The precedent for pardoning Edward Snowden

The final days of the Obama Administration are upon us. While partisan tensions continue to rise as President-elect Donald Trump inches closer to the White House, President Obama is faced with some last minute decisions. Among those last minute decisions are presidential pardons. The President has the power to grant a pardon for a crime, which is an enormous power. It can be used to correct a wrong by overturning a bad ruling or it can also be used for more political reasons, like issuing a pardon that salvages a legacy. Among the prominent potential pardon recipients is former National… Keep Reading

CNN commentator describes blacks meeting with Trump as “Mediocre Negroes”

The bias of the mainstream media has been evident for years. The bias has turned to open hostility with the rise of President-elect Donald Trump. The simple liberal slant has turned into a crusade among political commentators and anchors determined to shut down the conservative right. CNN commentator Marc Lamont Hill appeared on CNN Tonight as part of a panel discussion hosted by Don Lemon. Hill described Trump diversity team member Bruce LeVell as being apart of a group of “mediocre Negroes.” The remark was made as part of a rant that described members of the Trump diversity team as… Keep Reading

This Is How Senator Rand Paul Won

In 2016, politics seemed off by most people’s standards. Generally, election cycles start with crowded primaries, thinning down after the Republican and Democratic primary races. At that point, the most moderate candidate in each party sporting the biggest war chest and nicest speech pulls ahead in the race. In the end, manufactured politicians always reign victorious. For libertarians, this wasn’t going to be the case. Even though former Texas Congressman Ron Paul fell short in his hard-fought battle in 2012, the momentum was destined to steamroll through until 2016. This was the year that the liberty movement stormed the political… Keep Reading

How Chelsea Manning’s treatment discourages Edward Snowden from coming home

A common criticism of former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden is his open refusal to return home and face justice. His refusal to return home and stand trial has long been a point of criticism among opponents. Is it cowardice? Does Snowden have allegiances to other nations? Reports revealed this past week that President Barack Obama was considering giving Chelsea Manning, an Army Private First Class serving a prison sentence for leaking sensitive information to Wikileaks, clemency. While many celebrated this development and began hopeful for the prisoner, others have wondered why Snowden can’t have the same consideration. The… Keep Reading

Why Donald Trump wasn’t wrong to rebut John Lewis

Once again, the political world has erupted in response to Republican President-elect Donald Trump. Now less than a week out from inauguration, the battle between the White House and Democrats in Congress is heating up. Democrats are already signaling the relationship will be tense with talk of boycotting the inauguration and disrespecting the office currently held for a few more days by their own partisan politician. Now Congressman John Lewis, the Democratic career politician and Civil Rights leader, has stepped up the battle by attacking President-elect Trump as an “illegitimate” President.

Should Austin Petersen Leave The Libertarian Party?

Speculation is arising that Austin Petersen, the one-time candidate for the Libertarian Party presidential nomination, may soon leave the party. According to his own posts on the Internet, he is not satisfied with the present course of the party and its decisions over the last year. Vice Presidential nominee Bill Weld especially, who Petersen himself criticized, drew a lot of controversy among libertarian activists. The former Massachusetts Governor became an eager Hillary Clinton apologist during the election, positioning himself more as an Evan McMullin-style Never Trump warrior than an actual principled libertarian.

The whistleblower organization positioned itself at the center of a tumultuous presidential election cycle be leaking information about prominent Democratic officials, allegedly putting itself in favor of President-elect Donald Trump. Through all the Democratic National Committee leaks and the series of Podesta E-mail leaks, it established itself as a transparency force in the new digital era. But it also still faced criticism over its practices. The Democratic National Committee leaks were e-mails among various party officials that exposed a great deal about the party’s inner workings.

Will President Obama continue the Bush Post-Presidency example of silence?

These are complicated times for Barack Obama. The President of the United States has been popular among liberals and moderates and seeks to maintain that popularity. He wants to remain a voice for liberalism. At the same time, there is a tradition of ex-Presidents stepping back and allowing the next in line to do their job without interference. Despite the partisan differences and the criticisms of his own policies, George W. Bush remained largely silent and ultimately off-the-radar during the Obama Presidency. It could have been different, however. The former President could have criticized Obama on his lack of commitment… Keep Reading

How the Never Trump movement legitimized conspiracy theories in the mainstream

A lot has been made of the issue of fake news this election cycle. Social media has helped feed the spread of false stories passed off as legitimate, which have only served to further increase polarized partisan tensions and worsen the political atmosphere. Fake news has even been blamed for a shooting at a pizza restaurant that has been the center of an online conspiracy theory known as “Pizzagate”, which puts John Podesta and the Clinton camp at the center of a pedophile ring centered out of that location. From worsening atmospheres to guns being drawn, the issue of conspiracy… Keep Reading

The Libertarian Party Believes Ron Paul Is Not A Libertarian

It is often said that political parties are ruining the dignity of American discourse. Instead of discussing policy points, many identify with one of two partisan identities and allow their loyalties to fall in line. Here, policy support shapes around their team and they turn against whatever the other side opposes. It’s shallow. And it is growing worse. The problem with the political arena is that as the investment grows more significantly, so does the need for self-preservation. Political careers mean that principles can take a backseat to the race discussion because nobody is going to make either a name… Keep Reading

Fort Lauderdale shooting reflects another Gun Free Zone failure

The Second Amendment is among the most controversial topics in society, especially in recent years. With a number of shootings occur, the media and politicking partisans seize on every tragic opportunity to push a failed policy proposal. The idea is that with increased regulation and more difficulty in acquiring firearms, gun violence will decrease. It operates under the assumption that mass murderers and terrorists acquire their weapons through legal channels. In society, concealed carry and even carrying guns at all is under heavy assault from the gun control lobby. The argument here is that Gun Free Zones work and that… Keep Reading

When the left turned on Wikileaks and abandoned Chelsea Manning

Once upon a time, in a time that feels long ago, the American left was staunchly opposed to war. Former President George W. Bush was an evil man because he sent the United States military into Iraq as part of an invasion based upon lies. The weapons of mass destruction justification for overthrowing Saddam Hussein turned out to be false, as long suspected. It was all a lie and people died. Wikileaks, a whistleblower website that was dedicated to transparency, in an age when governments won’t have any part of it, became a hero of the left for helping expose the Iraq… Keep Reading

CNN labels Julian Assange a “pedophile” without evidence, Wikileaks responds with legal threat

The mainstream media has faced increasing scrutiny over the last year for its conduct, from both sides of the fence. Liberals allege that too much air time was given to President-elect Donald Trump, implying they legitimized a candidate who never should have taken off, let alone won the presidential election. Conservatives and libertarians suggest the media is still, as they long have been, biased against the right. Despite the difference in allegations, both sides of the spectrum seem to agree there is a credibility issue with the mainstream media.

Berlin Christmas market attack again shows why gun control is not the answer to terrorism

Since the Twin Towers fell and the Pentagon was struck fifteen years ago, the United States has lived in fear of the global terrorist threat. As a result of the rise of militant extremism, former President George W. Bush launched the War on Terrorism to combat this threat. Despite this, terrorism, if anything, has grown worse. Across Europe, and even a few times in the United States, terrorists have struck. As the threat of terrorism remains prominent, how do we tackle this issue? The answer sometimes is hard to find, because the mainstream political discussion gets diverted by focus on the… Keep Reading

Ron Paul calls out United States’ hypocrisy over meddling in elections

Fear of the Russians has become apart of American politics and culture again. Just like throughout the Cold War, politicians and the media are now feeding fears that the Russian menace is trying to undermine the American way of life. This year, the allegation is that the Russians interfered with the presidential election. This interference occurred with repeated hacks of Democratic Party officials and entities and subsequent release of the information. This arguably swayed the election cycle, both in the primary and general. Even if it were true the Russians were interfering with our own election, do we have a… Keep Reading

Stephen Bannon, the former executive chair of Breitbart News, who will now serve as President-Elect Trump’s Chief Strategist to the President, was deemed a ‘white supremacist’, despite there being little evidence of just that.

Conservative opponents are relentlessly trying to stop a former Secretary of State who before that was a United States Senator and First Lady. To these individuals, her record speaks for itself.

Every election has its defining moments where the flow takes swift turns and everything changes. This year had a number of those moments and they were especially important, given how critical of a cycle we had this year. The successor to President Barack Obama is critical, because it comes down to upholding his legacy or undoing it. Hillary Clinton, a one-time election opponent of the President, would represent a continuation of the liberal agenda. Donald Trump, a political newcomer and lifelong businessman, would represent a departure from many of the President’s key policy points. For this reason, many argued that the… Keep Reading

Why Gary Johnson didn’t get a single electoral vote

The day finally arrived. The Electoral College drama brought the election to its finale. This was the final stand of the Never Trump crowd, the last stand of the Hillary Clinton camp, and perhaps the final attempt of the Gary Johnson campaign to legitimize itself.
