Is Hillary Clinton Fit To Be President?

This election cycle has been quite controversial for a multitude of reasons, but a greater issue as of recent has been the health of Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton. The former Secretary of State’s health has been a hot topic, especially in recent weeks. When the Federal Bureau of Investigation released its report on the Clinton e-mail controversy, it revealed she couldn’t recall certain things after a concussion. She’s also had a couple of severe coughing fits and appeared to have fainted at a 9/11 Ceremony. There comes a point where the Democratic Party and the Clinton campaign have to… Keep Reading

Evan McMullin Fails At Educating Gary Johnson On Being a Credible Candidate

Evan McMullin has been an interesting candidate this election cycle. The rise of Donald Trump through the Republican Party to become the party’s nominee has damaged the fragile safe spaces of many moderates and neoconservatives across the spectrum. This has led to the likes of Jeb Bush and Mitt Romney running elsewhere. McMullin, a man with connections to establishment Republicans in Congress and the Council on Foreign Relations, is running as the anti-Trump candidate in the general election. The dynamic of this election cycle is bizarre. In years past, the Republican Party has stood by the hawkish rhetoric of the neoconservative… Keep Reading

Aleppo Coverage Proves Media Is In The Bag For Hillary Clinton

Former New Mexico Governor and current Libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson tripped in an embarrassing interview moment. As he’s been fighting to remain relevant and hit the threshold to make the debate stage, he may have dealt his campaign to become Commander-In-Chief a blow. When asked about “Aleppo”, Johnson replied asking what it was. Shocked, the interviewer explained it was a city at the center of Syrian refugee crisis. Some argue it’s not bad because Johnson is campaigning as a non-interventionist and thus wouldn’t be as concerned with Syria. But given the nature of United States foreign policy, Syria will be a… Keep Reading

Why Donald Trump Should Push For Gary Johnson Debate Inclusion

It’s all but certain at this point that Libertarian Presidential candidate Gary Johnson won’t make the debate stage. His polling numbers have slipped a bit after he danced a little bit in the double digits and the 15% threshold has become a longer shot. This seals the deal for the usual two-party presidential debate, this time with Republican nominee Donald Trump and Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. But what if there was a holdout? What if a candidate stepped back and refused to participate until a clearly popular candidate is included as well? Enter Donald Trump. Hillary Clinton is in a world of… Keep Reading

How American Voters Enable The Two Party Oligarchy

American politics have an interesting dynamic. While many ordinary citizens lament the partisan gridlock and lackluster political candidates, the gridlock continues as the typical candidates still get elected. Eventually, we reach a point where we are now. Voters are overwhelmed with outrage and contempt for the system, resulting in someone like bombastic businessman Donald Trump winning the Republican presidential nomination with the most votes in primary history. But as controversial as he is, Donald Trump is still a Republican. Campaigning under a major party brand, Trump’s victories enable one major party while his failures enable the other. It’s still the same… Keep Reading

Vladimir Putin Is Right About The Democratic National Committee Leaks

In a number of ways, this election cycle has been truly bizarre. The Republican Party primary was a circus, which saw the fall of the Bush dynasty when former governor Jeb Bush got crushed. Other establishment favorites like Senator Marco Rubio didn’t make it very far either, even after they made small hand jokes and genitalia size implications about opponents. Instead, it was bombastic businessman Donald Trump who came out on top with more votes than anyone else in primary history. On the Democratic side, no sooner did former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton brush off Senator Bernie Sanders than… Keep Reading

McCarthy Democrats And The New Red Scare

McCarthyism seems like a moment in the long distant past when fear of the spread of communism and the influence of the Soviet Union gripped the nation. Spying was a threat, especially given the case of Julius and Ethel Rosenberg, who were convicted of working for the Soviet Union and later executed via electric chair. People’s character became under attack as hysteria rose, with accusations of communist connections hanging over some like a dark cloud. Democratic President Harry Truman created a program to evaluate the loyalty of federal employees, while Senator Joseph McCarthy would lead investigations into those accused of communist… Keep Reading

The Democratic Party Has Officially Gone Full Neocon

In the mainstream narrative of American politics, the Republican Party is the pro-war party. After President George W. Bush took over, everything in America changed. He took advantage of the 9/11 terrorist attack to justify a global assault on whatever the threat of the moment was. One minute it was something in Afghanistan, then it was Saddam Hussein in Iraq, and eventually it expanded to include drone operations. All the while, Democrats were protesting the other party that was feeding the military industrial complex. When Senator John McCain was nominated to be the successor, a Nobel Peace Prize Laureate was… Keep Reading

Why Marijuana And Gun Rights Advocates Need Each Other

American politics is best summed up as divided. Politicians and political establishments maintain power through the politics of division, striving to keep regular Americans bitterly divided. The Colin Kaepernick controversy is a good example. While most Americans likely agree that racism is wrong , as is oppression, we’re now being sidetracked by a debate that isn’t relevant to the issue. We seem to be divided on this non-issue, when on the larger issues we’re likely in agreement. The same goes for pot and guns. Many oppose marijuana because of a personal belief that drugs are bad. Regardless of personal moral… Keep Reading

Anti-war Leader Cindy Sheehan Comes Out Against Hillary Clinton

During the presidency of George Walker Bush, Democrats were fervently opposed to war. At the time, the United States was entering a new era of greater interventionism in the post 9/11 world. After the horrific attacks of September 11th, the Bush Administration began justifying a series of conflicts under the War on Terror. After initially invading Afghanistan, Iraq was next on the list and remains a hotly debated topic to this day. While many Republicans at the time had seen intervention as necessary in order to stop terrorism abroad, many Democrats disagreed and protested loudly. The left had become anti-war… Keep Reading

Appeals Court Rules That Medical Patients Can Be Deprived Of Constitutional Rights

The court system in America is generally seen as problematic, even given all the constitutional safeguards and legal protections designed to keep it in working order. From the bottom to the top, the problematic rulings are numerous. The Supreme Court is often seen as the ultimate arbiter in American society and one that many suggest is there for our rights. But looking at the factual history of the courts, there are plenty of instances where it ruled against the clear letter of the Constitution. Prominent examples include Dred Scott and the right of Africans, as well as Fred Korematsu, a Japanese-American… Keep Reading

Hillary Clinton’s Unfavorability Ratings Are On The Rise

A lot has been made this election cycle about how bad Republican Presidential Nominee Donald Trump is. He has endorsed questionable policy points, said a lot of mean and offensive things, and otherwise brings discomfort to a political arena that is normally safe, content, and boring. Alarmism among political pundits and the mainstream media is endless, talking about the tyranny of Trump as if we’ve never before had a President that didn’t love executive power. But what about Hillary Clinton? The American people finally seem to be waking up to how bad she is. It’s been an endless string of… Keep Reading

Russia’s Anti-ISIS Campaign Exposes America’s Foreign Policy Hypocrisy

The American opposition to Russia is nothing new. Since the days of Joseph Stalin and the former Soviet Union, the United States has had a troubled relationship with the country. For decades, a global campaign of influence was waged, otherwise known as the Cold War, where the United States and the Soviet Union competed against one another. Even after the fall of the Soviet Union and the conclusion of the Cold War, tensions remain between the United States and Russia. But are the concerns about Russia legitimate? Accusations about Russia’s government may or may not be legitimate, but the United… Keep Reading

Senator Tim Kaine Joins Left-wing Hypocrites Over Hillary Clinton’s Health

Health questions have long been considered a legitimate concern in American politics, asked by pundits, voters, and even the politicians themselves. The idea is that if we’re electing a politician, we should be sure they are healthy. When Ronald Reagan ran for President, there were concerns over his age because of the possibility he may not even finish his term. Former Texas Congressman Ron Paul faced questions about his age as well when he ran for President. Because of his intense military service, Senator John McCain even faced questions over psychological health. Unless you’re talking about Hillary Clinton, then all… Keep Reading

Did The FBI Just Admit That Electronic Voting Is Not Secure?

In our modern times, electronic innovation is becoming increasingly prominent. Paper records normally kept in a filing cabinet are now digitally stored on secure database systems, creating easier access and making searches more efficient. Communication has become faster with text messaging, e-mails, and social media. This and many other examples reflect growing technological gains, but also an increasing dependency on the digital world. With digital storage as opposed to physical, there are risks. Systems, databases, and websites can be hacked, granting access from other individuals abroad. E-mails and text messages can even be intercepted by the government, and have been… Keep Reading

Hillary Clinton’s Deleted Personal E-mails About Yoga, Weddings, And Benghazi

The ongoing e-mail controversy surrounding former Secretary of State and Democratic Presidential Nominee Hillary Clinton just took a huge turn. To this point, the differing narratives have been fairly partisan. Republicans claim that the email scandal displays Clinton’s careless judgment – some even going so far as to suggest corruption. Democrats, on the other hand, say this is a partisan attack about a non-issue. When the e-mails were first turned over to the government for review, Clinton indicated she turned over all e-mails except ones deemed personal. Specifically, things relating to yoga scheduling, and her daughter Chelsea Clinton’s wedding, were… Keep Reading

Colin Kaepernick’s “protest” Is a Miscalculated Strategy And Distraction

Celebrities, athletes, and musicians are no stranger to politics. Many famous individuals in America attempt to use their position in the spotlight to advance certain political agendas. Quarterback Colin Kaepernick of the San Francisco 49ers is no different. Kaepernick caused an uproar after refusing to stand for the National Anthem. His reason for this was to protest racial inequality and oppression towards blacks. However well-meaning Kaepernick’s publicity stunt may have been, it will not achieve the intended results. If Kaepernick’s goal was to raise awareness for the cause of racial equality, he failed. While some claim he has ignited discussion,… Keep Reading

CNN Cancels Doctor Show After Host Raises Speculations Regarding Hillary Clinton’s Health

It’s often said that the mainstream media is liberal. Conservatives have long described the major networks as the “liberal media”, alleging that there is an overt bias against the right. Libertarians more generally describe the mainstream media as unreliable and shallow, devoid of any serious approach to real issues. Regardless, the mainstream media does have a perception problem among those on the right. But is this perception problem real? Does the mainstream media really favor the left and work to boost the Democratic Party establishment? CNN may have verified this. For decades, it has been regarded as valid to question… Keep Reading

Iraq War Architect Paul Wolfowitz Considering Support For Hillary Clinton

Hillary Clinton has been facing an image problem this election cycle, with high unfavorability numbers. The e-mail controversy, the refusal to address the media, and her awkward attempts to seem normal have all worked against her. Also among the things working against her is her support of the Iraq War. Clinton has since worked to distance herself from the conflict she supported. She even had an awkward speech by Khizr Khan at the Democratic National Convention, where the father of a fallen soldier rambled about the Constitution and used his son for political gain while supporting a candidate that sent… Keep Reading

Maine Governor Paul LePage Labels Khizr Khan a “con Man”

Maine Republican Governor Paul LePage is no stranger to headlines. His blunt speech, unfiltered opinions, and strong attitude have even been compared to Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump. And now Governor LePage is making headlines again, this time with Khizr Khan. Khizr Khan initially made headlines a few weeks ago with his appearance at the Democratic National Convention. Appearing at the coronation of Hillary Clinton, he showed up to speak against Republican Presidential Nominee Donald Trump. In the process, he used the memory of his late son who was killed in the line of duty in Iraq. Captain Humayun Khan… Keep Reading

How Mandatory Vaccinations Conflict With Libertarian Principles

The vaccination topic can become as heated as the GMO topic. On the one hand, we want to eradicate disease and lead a healthier society. But on the other hand, to what degree does the government have the right to require what we do with our bodies? The science of the topic isn’t enough when considering this because there are additional implications. In a nation of laws, legal precedents are important. The first and foremost concern relates to self-ownership. Who owns our bodies? Freedom is the right to live our lives as we see fit, so long as we do… Keep Reading

Donald Trump’s Tax Returns Aren’t The Real Issue

A consistent storyline this election cycle that dates back to the primaries is Donald Trump’s tax returns. To date, he has refused to release his tax returns, citing an ongoing audit and advice from his lawyers to not release them until the audit is complete. Regardless of the factual basis of this claim, it’s bizarre that even conservatives and libertarians are hitting the Republican presidential nominee from this angle. Should we care what the invoice for federal tax theft has on it? The problem here is a lack of a greater discussion about the Internal Revenue Service. In a free… Keep Reading

Liberals Become Hypocritical About Health Questions In Protecting Hillary Clinton

The health and medical records of a politician is an interesting topic in political discourse. On the one hand, it’s important for voters to know that a politician can do the job. With this point, it’s important to know that the individual we’re electing is mentally fit to hold office. Is the individual unstable? Democrats have suggested this in regards to Republican Presidential Nominee Donald Trump. The importance of the mental capacity question relates to the stress and intensity of the job. Whoever becomes president will be handling the weight of the country against the world, the red button at their fingertips.… Keep Reading

Is Green Day Frontman Billie Joe Armstrong Correct About Trump Being Hitler?

Donald Trump has been a polarizing figure this election cycle. Since the early days of his longshot campaign and through his transformation to a serious contender, many have taken issue with his approach and demeanor. Whether it be a ban on Muslims, calling Senator Elizabeth Warren “Pocahontas”, or having other names for those he dislikes, his style is different from the usual watered down politics America is used to. Violated safe spaces aside, is Trump also an aspiring tyrant? Green Day is a punk rock band that has been around for a couple of decades now, and in recent years… Keep Reading

What Gary Johnson Could Learn From The Failed Rand Paul Presidential Campaign

The fall of Senator Rand Paul’s presidential ambitions was a shock to many. Given the success his father had in establishing a movement with his own presidential campaigns, many expected Senator Paul to take this fight to the finish line. Former Texas Congressman Ron Paul did just that, taking a delegation fight all the way to the Republican National Convention in 2012. Instead, Senator Paul was out of the race after falling flat in Iowa. One contest down and he’s out. Even his father, who was more of an unknown when he ran in 2008, finished better. Why did Senator Paul… Keep Reading

ISIS-inspired Knife Attack Shows Gun Control Won’t Stop Terrorism

The Federal Bureau of Investigation is now investigating a knife attack in Roanoke, Virginia for possible ties to ISIS. 20 year old Wasil Farooqui of Roanoke County was arrested by County Police Saturday night after yelling “Allah Akbar” on a stabbing rampage. Because of the nature of the incident, the FBI was contacted for possible terrorist ties. Farooqui, who has been monitored by the federal government for some time, remains held without bond and the investigation is ongoing. The incident illustrates a point that gun rights advocates have regularly highlighted: gun control won’t stop terrorism. If all guns were banned, then those… Keep Reading

Joe Biden Cares More About The North Atlantic Treaty Than Constitution

It’s always interesting to hear a member of the Obama Administration insult the intelligence of another human being. Especially in the case of Vice President Joe Biden, an individual who has established a reputation as being a lite version of Donald Trump. He often doesn’t think before he speaks, and although he hasn’t called for deporting an entire religion, he has his record. But what is a “big [expletive] deal”, in the words of the Vice President, is his lack of concern for the Constitution. In a recent speech, Vice President Biden sought to reassure allies under the North Atlantic… Keep Reading

What The General Election Says About American Voters

This election cycle has been a special roller coaster with many applicable adjectives. It’s been truly bizarre, because of who has won and who hasn’t.

Worse, who would have thought that Trump would defeat party darlings like Senator Marco Rubio and former Governor Jeb Bush? The real story comes in the months ahead. We’re seeing the story itself unfold now, regarding what the elections say about American voters. It’s a positive step that we’re… Keep Reading

How Evan McMullin Will Destroy Future Third Party Candidates

This election cycle has been bizarre, with the rise of two widely unpopular major party candidates in Republican Donald Trump and Democrat Hillary Clinton. While many do not like their options, somehow they secured their parties nomination. But what do two unpopular major party candidates give us? The rise of third party candidates. Independents and third party candidates have always existed, but seldom with the popularity we’re seeing now. Libertarian Gary Johnson is barely under the threshold from appearing on the debate stage. He also will be appearing on all fifty state ballots.

The Greatest Conservative Scam Of All-time

Politico recently ran an article about how the Tea Party movement is dead and gone, and that the only thing that came of it was a scam. The idea is that a lot of opportunistic scam artists set up PACs designed to steal money and use concerned Americans for their own benefit. Did this occur? Absolutely, and it’s likely a practice that isn’t only limited to Tea Party-aligned PACs and certainly will not stop after the movement is dead. With all of this said, if you’re a conservative or libertarian, the tea party movement’s wave of green seeking PACs are not… Keep Reading

So what? Russian intelligence agents are hacking United States political organizations and government employees, leaking information that will undoubtedly influence our government. Again, so what?

Why Thomas Massie Isn’t Wrong In His Trump Support Logic

The liberty movement is more divided now than it has been in recent memory during a presidential election. 2008 saw the rise of a Congressman from Texas who united the libertarian movement, despite not making it far in the primary itself. 2012 saw a second attempt by then-Congressman Paul to secure the Republican nomination, this time putting up a heavy fight. Things are different now. Paul’s son, Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky, was widely expected to go even further this election cycle.

Why Senator Rand Paul Holds 12-point Lead Over Democratic Challenger Jim Gray

Senator Rand Paul has been facing off with Lexington, Kentucky Mayor Jim Gray for his Kentucky Senate seat. The difference between the two candidates is enormous.

He has opposed war, encroachments upon constitutional rights, and has been a firm opponent of big government. Democratic challenger Mayor Gray is the complete opposite. Previously, Mayor Gray has criticized the incumbent Republican for his support of civil liberties and opposition to fearmongering politics.

With all of this said, Senator Paul has remained a controversial figure.

Government Is Using Taxpayer Money To Determine If The Gadsden Flag Is Racist Workplace Harassment

Government is known for wasting taxpayer dollars, but sometimes the bureaucrats really outdo themselves. This time, it involves the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. The EEOC, originally created by an Executive Order signed by President John F. Kennedy, protects individuals from workplace discrimination. Their responsibility was originally intended to ensure individuals are not discriminated against based on race, creed, color, or national origin. And now the federal government may be here to protect you from historical symbols. The issue at hand started with a complaint filed by a black federal employee who did not like a coworker’s hat bearing the historical symbol. Instead… Keep Reading

What Donald Trump’s Opposition To House Speaker Paul Ryan Means For Republicans

In any other year, the party would be circling around their presidential candidate and the party warriors would be marching off to battle in the general election.

It’s not easy being former Florida Governor Jeb Bush this year. In an election cycle once seen as his, he watched everything go up in flames and was helpless to stop it. His supporters wouldn’t clap for him and his turnout was pathetic. Even after the political legacies of his former President father and two-term President brother, Jeb failed to gain any momentum this year. Part of the reason why is the fall of the neoconservative movement. The other is the open refusal to again trust the Bush Dynasty. It also has to do with the foreign policy the United States of… Keep Reading

The result was Senator Cruz giving his primetime speech and exiting the stage without offering an endorsement of Trump.
