Trump Towers Over Mainstream Media Monkeys

in Culture/Politics by

Much to the chagrin of the mental midgets in the mainstream media, former president Barack Hussein Obama appointee Rear Admiral Ronny Jackson, has given President Trump a clean bill of health. More important than his physical fitness is President Trump’s mental acuity which was also noted by Admiral Jackson. For the record, that’s one more churlish liberal narrative obliterated. Our president is not an imbecile and he’s not crazy. He’s large and incharge and crushing everything he lands on. Tax reform was, is, and will for the foreseeable future be, a huge deal. It’s a feather in a cap already…

Don’t Force Google To Hire Conservatives

in Politics/Tech by

On January 8th, 2018, former Google employee James Damore filed a discrimination lawsuit against the tech giant. Damore made national headlines last year after he released the Google Memo. In the memo, Damore alleged that Google has shunned ideas that disrupt their leftist narrative. Google fired Damore for drafting this now infamous memo. The lawsuit lists Google’s discrimination against white conservative men as a violation of Damore’s rights. Despite the outright immorality of Google’s anti-freedom bias, James Damore is wrong to sue. Ultimately, James Damore will only damage freedom if he wins this lawsuit. Assuming the judge sides with him, Damore will…

The FBI’s Attacks On MLK, Jr. Are Helpful Reminders For Today

in History/Politics by

Writing for the Wall Street Journal in 2005, federal judge and former U.S. deputy attorney general Laurence Silberman recalled how he was “shocked” to discover the extent the FBI abused its power to spy on Americans.  Speaking of the first time he reviewed the files of J. Edgar Hoover, Silberman writes how Hoover tasked “his agents with reporting privately to him on any bits of dirt on figures such as Martin Luther King or their families — information Hoover sometimes used as blackmail to ensure his and the bureau’s power.”

Trump Is Correct, Haiti Is a Shithole

in Politics by

As with many, if not most, of the reported obscenities to have emerged from 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, the latest raft of divulged vulgarities are based upon anonymous sources with one exception. In addition to the unnamed, faceless rats who leaked President Trump’s recent, “shithole” comments, there is one verified witness of our fearless leader’s alleged latest debacle, senior senator from Illinois and dyed-in-the-wool Democrat, Dick Durbin. The Daily Wire was quick to note Mr. Durbin’s tenuous relationship with the truth in the specific context of his history of deceptive disclosures regarding the inner workings of the White House. It’s not…

Now’s a Great Time To Stop Meddling In Haiti

in Politics/World by

Earlier this week, President Trump allegedly disparaged Haiti, describing it as “sh*thole.” The response has been what you might expect. It’s been a torrent of demands for apologies from the Trump administration and commentary on how “troubling” Donald Trump’s views are.  Upon hearing of such comments supposedly directed at Haitians, a well informed person might be tempted to think “if only this were the worst thing a US president has inflicted upon the Haitian people.”

Peter Tatchell And The Total State

in Law/Politics/World by

I have some respect for Peter Tatchell. He campaigned against the anti-homosexual laws before this was a safe thing to do. He has shown courage on other issues. This being said, I am troubled by his latest set of recommendations. Writing on the 8th January 2018 for The Friends of Europe blog, he declares that “equal rights are not enough.” It is not enough for people to be treated equally before the law. It is also necessary for children to be brainwashed into agreeing with him. He says:

Thanks, Government — Nearly Half Of Puerto Rico Is Still Without Power

in Politics by

In the wake of Hurricane Maria, most of Puerto Rico lost electricity. Since electronic transactions were not longer possible under these conditions, the Federal Reserve was forced to fly a planeload of cash to the island to avoid a total breakdown of the economy there.  But even then, we were assured that the loss of power was a momentary blip. Everything would be back to normal soon.  But as of December 29 (more than three months after the hurricane hit) only 55% percent of power-company customers actually have power again. The good news is that the “Army Corps of Engineers has projected that power…

DACA: ‘A Bill Of Love’ Or A Bill Of Goods?

in Politics by

DACA. That’s the magic word, the “Open Sesame” of sorts, that stopped Democrats from saying President Donald Trump was senile. DACA is the acronym for “Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals.” The DACA program is Barack Obama’s grant of education, food stamps, health care, a shot at a job and a reprieve from deportation for the youthful alien among us. Or, for the older illegal immigrant who still has that certain, impish je ne sais quoi, and can pass for a younger lawbreaker. Trump said “DACA,” and he said it with love.

President Trump Seems Far Saner Than His Critics

in Politics by

After 18 months of scrutiny, the accusation that candidate Donald J. Trump colluded with the Kremlin looks as empty as a Soviet store shelf. Far-Left Democrats screamed for Trump’s impeachment even before his inauguration. Nonetheless, the House considered articles of impeachment on. The measure was massacred 58-364. In fact, 126 Democrats just said, “Nay.” Undeterred, the Trump-loathing Left’s latest gambit is that the president is “unfit for office” due to mental illness.

No, We Don’t Need A Federal “Solution” To Infrastructure Problems

in Economics/Politics by

On December 19, an Amtrak train in Washington State killed three people and injured 100 others when it derailed and crashed into traffic lanes on a nearby highway. The day before, Atlanta’s international airport suffered a disastrous power outage: the whole airport, the world’s busiest, went dark for 11 hours. Thousands of flights were disrupted. For many hours nobody in authority attempted to explain—or even seemed able to explain—what had happened. Both cases have been used to bolster claims that the US federal government needs to spend more on infrastructure.  In the wake of the Washington derailment, President Trump quickly took…

Feminist Rewriting Of Morality: Abortion Is Empowerment

in Culture/Politics by

In the 1993 film ‘Schindler’s List’, directed by Steven Spielberg, there’s a scene where the main character Oskar Schindler (played by Lian Neeson) is speaking with Nazi soldier Amon Goeth (played by Ralph Fiennes). Schindler explains what real power means. His explanation is simple. Real power is when justice is deserved for an offender. However, instead of punishment, the judge pardons them.  Goeth is an evil Nazi soldier who hates the Jewish people. The movie depicts scenes where he’s standing on a balcony overlooking a concentration camp holding a rifle, shooting and killing Jewish prisoners as target practice. Within his…

How President Trump Normalized Neoconservatism

in Politics by

It’s fact: Neoconservatives are pleased with President Trump’s foreign policy. A couple of months back, Bloomberg’s Eli Lake let it know he was in neoconservative nirvana: “… for Venezuela, [Donald Trump] came very close to calling for regime change. ‘The United States has taken important steps to hold the regime accountable,’ Trump said. ‘We are prepared to take further action if the government of Venezuela persists on its path to impose authoritarian rule on the Venezuelan people.’” “For a moment,” swooned Lake, “I closed my eyes and thought I was listening to a Weekly Standard editorial meeting.” Onward to Venezuela!

False Allegations And The Case For Reciprocal Punishments

in Culture/Politics by

Following the Harvy Weinstein sexual misconduct scandal, it was apparent our nation has a problem. For decades many accusations were swept under the rug and payouts made to keep victims quiet. All of it done to protect the reputations of industries and companies. One might say the pot finally reached its boiling point and now America’s faced with a massive overflow of accusations and terminations. While the number of firings has subsided, this recent #MeToo movement has brought to light the problems many women faced in the workplace. It’s likely companies and industries are frantically reviewing sexual harassment and misconduct policies…

The FBI Did Everything But Drive Hillary’s Getaway Car

in Politics by

The FBI did everything but drive Hillary’s getaway car. Former secretary of state Clinton is a free woman largely thanks to the tender loving care that the FBI provided her and her conspirators during its probe of her illegal, unsecure e-mail server and related abuse of government secrets. GOP lawmakers concluded this after grilling FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe on December 21, behind closed doors, according to John Solomon’s molar-grinding expose in Tuesday’s The Hill. “For the first time, investigators say they have secured written evidence that the FBI believed there was evidence that some laws were broken,” Solomon reported. This proof includes newly confirmed…

EXCLUSIVE: CO Gubernatorial Candidate Tom Tancredo Calls For Limited Government And Strong Borders, Praises Ron Paul

in News/Politics by

Former U.S. Rep. Tom Tancredo, a leading 2018 candidate for Governor of Colorado, elaborated on his vision for limited government and stronger border controls in an exclusive interview with The Liberty Conservative. Tancredo previously ran for Governor in 2010 as the Constitution Party candidate, coming in second place, with 36.4% of the vote. Now, he has rejoined the Republican Party, which he sees as essential in order to avoid the restrictions that have been set up by the major parties against third parties. “I’d make it as easy as possible for third parties to run – I have nothing against…

Paul Backs Trump On Pakistan: He “Comes From A Wing Of The Party That Represents A Lot Of The Things That I’ve Said”

in News/Politics by

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) has backed President Donald Trump’s call to reduce foreign aid to Pakistan, and is prepared to work closely with the administration to help achieve this objective. “I couldn’t agree more. I’ve been fighting to end aid to Pakistan for years and will again lead the charge in the Senate. Let’s make this happen,” Paul said in a tweet on Monday. After Paul had a phone conversation with the President on this issue on Tuesday, he decided to elaborate his position further during an interview with Neil Cavuto on Fox News. “You know, I think most Americans…

Rand Paul Criticizes Prospective Mitt Romney Senate Bid, Citing ‘Romneycare’

in News/Politics by

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) appeared critical of reports that 2012 Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney is considering a run for Senate, in the wake of Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-UT) announcing his retirement on Tuesday. When questioned about his thoughts regarding a prospective Romney bid by Fox News’ Neil Cavuto, Paul appeared dismissive. “I’ve met Mitt Romney before, I don’t know if in Utah they’d hold it against him that he was the Governor of another state across the country – a lot of those things would have to be decided over time.” Although most commentators believe Romney will easily get…

2017 Was Trump’s Year Of Winning Dangerously

in Politics by

For President Donald J. Trump, 2017 concludes unlike how it commenced. Huge distractions arrived early, including court battles concerning Trump’s travel restrictions on terror-torn nations, a Niagara Falls of classified leaks, and loud threats of impeachment over alleged Russian collusion. Meanwhile, repealing and replacing Obamacare, expected to take just a few months, devolved into a quagmire that devoured time, energy, and morale. But 2017 ends as Trump’s Year of Winning Dangerously. He has navigated these and other troubled waters and defied his liberal and conservative critics. As he puts it: “We are compiling a long and beautiful list” of achievements.

No Good Deed Goes Unpunished

in Politics by

You’re more than likely familiar with Aesop’s brief fable of a mouse and a lion. If you’ve lived under a rock your whole life I’ll bring you up to speed: A mouse convinces a lion to spare his life in exchange for the promise of a future favor. Cue the future. The lion finds himself trapped in a hunter’s net and the mouse responds to his roar and saves him from the net. It’s a quaint story with a timeless message, that is, a kindness is never wasted. It’s a nice thought but we don’t live in a fable, we…

Turning Point USA Holds Successful Conference Despite Mainstream Media’s Sabotage Efforts

in Politics by

Last week, The Liberty Conservative covered the Turning Point USA’s Student Action Summit in West Palm Beach, FL. The event was largely considered a success, but was marred by a hit piece that was dropped by the New Yorker conveniently timed to undermine the event. This was supposed to be a big bombshell, but largely fell flat. It consisted of the same old accusations of racism fueled by an anti-black text message released by a now former employee as well as the testimonials of bitter ex-employees with axes to grind because they are no longer getting paychecks. The article also…

President Trump Unleashes The Engines Of Growth

in Economics/Politics by

It was a little over a year ago that I wrote my first article for the Liberty Conservative, “The Authors of Prosperity.” Published on the 20th of November, 2016, it expounds on the promise of then-candidate Donald Trump’s intent to slash taxes for individuals, couples, and businesses, and in so doing, usher in an epoch of wealth generation the likes of which most millennials can’t fathom. This would not be an unprecedented feat, and I wrote of how Harding and Coolidge, Kennedy, Reagan, Clinton, and Bush all stewarded over economic rebounds and successes through of conservative tax reform. In my…

Rand Paul Calls For Investigation Into “High Ranking Obama Officials” Who May Have “Colluded” Against Trump

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) has accused the Obama administration of having illegally attempted to influence the outcome of the 2016 presidential election in a tweet sent out Thursday. “Time to investigate high ranking Obama government officials who might have colluded to prevent the election of [Donald Trump]!” Paul stated. “This could be WORSE than Watergate!” Paul has previously suggested that the Obama administration may have illegally spied on his own 2016 presidential campaign. “I have formally requested from the WH and the Intel Committees info on whether I was surveilled by Obama admin and or the Intel community!” Paul stated on…

Donald Trump Jr: An Anti-American Conspiracy Is Out To Sabotage My Father!

in News/Politics by

Donald J. Trump Jr. did not mince words during his address to the Turning Point USA’s Student Action Summit yesterday. He called out the deep state conspiracy that is trying to sabotage his father’s presidency, and his ‘Make America Great Again’ agenda. “There is, and there are, people at the highest levels of government that don’t want to let America be America,” Trump Jr. said yesterday. Right now, Trump Jr. is currently under investigation by the feds for his possible role in a Russian conspiracy. That hasn’t stopped the man, clearly cut from the same cloth as his brash father,…

Turning Point USA’s Student Action Summit Kicks Off With Exhilarating Night Of Speakers

On Tuesday, thousands of young conservative activists aged 15-25 from across the country convened and left with free t-shirts and smiles as Turning Point USA kicked off what should be their biggest event to date. West Palm Beach, FL is the backdrop of the third-annual Student Action Summit. Over three thousand of the top student activists have come from all corners of the United States of America for the event, it is just getting started. The event goes all the way until Dec. 22. The activists watched speakers such as Ben Shapiro of the Daily Wire, Dennis Prager of PragerU,…

Busting Statist And Scripture-Based Fibs For A Borderless America

in Philosophy/Politics/Religion by

When preaching immigration leniency and lawlessness in America, immigration bleeding hearts should lay off the Hebrew Bible, Leviticus 19:34, in particular. “The stranger that sojourneth with you shall be unto you as the home-born among you, and thou shalt love him as thyself; for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt.” One Rev. Ryan M. Eller, on Tucker Carlson’s show, gave a dissembling and misleading reading of the tract, in mitigation of the immigration status of Kate Steinle’s killer. The reverend glibly translated the word “sojourn” to mean citizens living among you, the latter having created, presumably, an immutable…

Republican Senators Tank Trump’s Libertarian-Leaning Ex-Im Nominee

in News/Politics by

President Donald Trump’s libertarian-leaning nominee to chair the Export-Import Bank, former Rep. Scott Garrett (R-NJ), has been rejected by the Republican-controlled Senate Banking Committee. As a member of the House of Representatives, Garrett was a close associate of former Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX), and a member of the Freedom Caucus and the Liberty Caucus. He voted against the reauthorization of the Export-Import Bank, delivering a scathing critique of the institution on the House floor, and condemning it as a “corruption of the free enterprise system”. His staunch opposition to corporate welfare led to conflict with special interests who benefit substantially…

President Donald Trump: Enemy Of The Deep State & Regulatory Destroyer

in News/Politics by

There was much debate over how President Donald Trump would govern once he became President. His conservative and libertarian supporters thought he would use his knowledge of the system to tame it while his conservative and libertarian detractors believe he would be a bully with no concern for the Constitution and govern like a New York City liberal. Almost a year into his young presidency, his conservative and libertarian supporters are being vindicated bigly. Trump is attacking the federal bureaucracy in a way that we have not seen in generations. He has even set his sights on the Federal Bureau…

Trump Is Better Than Santa

in Politics by

He’s making a list, and he’s checking it twice. No, I’m not talking about that jolly old poster-child-for-morbid-obesity, Saint Nick. I’m talking about President Trump. His list is a little different than Santa’s. Santa compiles a list of children who are naughty and nice, the nice ones get presents, and the naughty ones get coal or something. The most fitting corollary in today’s current affairs would be Lindsey Vonn trash talking President Trump prior to her aborted efforts at the Winter Olympics. That’s a stocking full of coal if ever I’ve seen one. President Trump’s list is different than Santa’s.…

Groupthink In Academia: The Will To Submit

in Politics by

“Groupthink” is a phenomenon that social psychologists know well. It was in 1972 that Irving Janis first coined the term, and since this time the concept of groupthink has been applied to the study of decision-making in various contexts. However, all too rarely have scholars analyzed academia in terms of groupthink. Yet there can be no question that contemporary academics at most universities and colleges throughout America (and beyond) are at least as much as and, truth be told, probably much more so than anyone else under the spell of Groupthink. I have been teaching philosophy for the last 18…

Just In Time For The Holidays, Reckless States Are Coming For Your Online Purchases

If there is anything that gets demagogic politicians and pundits riled up, it’s the closing of tax loopholes, and the tax-hike demagogues might just be getting one of their wishes come December. Bloomberg reports that most online consumers will pay sales taxes in some shape or form in the next few months. Currently, consumers pay taxes on goods purchased straight from Amazon, but they can avoid paying taxes on goods if they purchase them through Amazon’s third-party merchants. By the start of December this could all change, as several merchants are expected to start collecting taxes in return for partial…

Optimistic Trump Stumps For Tax Cuts

President Donald J. Trump’s tormentors paint him as a brooding grinch who oozes pessimism. The New Republic last October decried “Trump’s dark portrayal of the country.” But Trump was Mr. Sunshine at the White House Wednesday as he promoted the Republican tax-cut plan, now in production on Capitol Hill. “The goal of my administration is for every American to know the dignity of work, the pride of a paycheck, and the satisfaction of a job well done,” Trump declared. “We want people to love waking up in the morning and going to work.” Even more broadly, Trump discussed this nation’s…

New Yorker Fires Ryan Lizza Over Sexual Misconduct, While CNN Only Suspends Him

in News/Politics by

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…

#MeToo Movement Claims Its First Life As Republican Lawmaker Commits Suicide

The insane atmosphere created by the #MeToo movement has claimed its first life. As accusations continue to fly without evidence and due process becomes a thing of the past, Kentucky State Rep. Dan Johnson committed suicide after having accusations pinned on him by the mainstream media. Johnson died of a single gunshot wound on Wednesday. The bullet appeared to be self-inflicted. This came shortly after he was accused publicly of molesting a 17-year-old girl, accusations staunchly denied by the former legislator before he committed apparent suicide. “This is a tragic situation,” said Mac Brown, the chairman of the Republican Party…

Congress has a bad habit of treating compromise like a good thing even in instances where it does bad things for the American people. The same can be said of bipartisanship. The problem is that in a lot of these instances, Congress coming together doesn’t mean they’re coming together for the people. If anything, they’re coming together for their own political careers. The optics of bipartisanship is stellar, it’s just the details that get ugly. It’s been an rough year for an ineffective Republican Congress that has repeatedly failed to pass various legislative promises. Now the threat of government shutdown…

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.

Establishment Christianity: Roy Moore, Tyranny, And a New Standard Of Guilt

in Politics by

There is a lot of blame to go around for Roy Moore’s loss in the special election for Senator from Alabama. The political establishment and media undertook a smear campaign shortly before the election based on alleged events from 40 years ago. The Republican Party abandoned its candidate, and Roy Moore failed to sufficiently attack his opponent as a baby-killing, gun-grabbing leftist. However, when it comes down to it, there is one group of people that deserves the blame for Moore’s loss — Christian leaders. Whether it was Southern Baptists like Russell Moore or political commentators like David French from National…

Disney Rejected Obama Proposal To Use ‘Frozen’ Characters To Push Climate Agenda

Next to the government takeover of healthcare, one of the biggest objectives of former President Barack Obama was tackling climate change. It’s a common rallying point for the left. Liberal and progressive activists like to speak of how humanity is bringing the planet down with endless fear-mongering. The result of the human shaming is bigger government and less freedom, all in the name of saving us from ourselves. Climate change alarmists like to utilize a wide array of propaganda to sell their extremist ideas. One of these propaganda concepts was a proposal by the Obama Administration to utilize the characters…

After Roy Moore’s Loss, Steve Bannon Remains Emboldened To Fight GOP Establishment

After Judge Roy Moore was defeated in Alabama by his ultra-liberal opponent Doug Jones, many Republican strategists are saying that this unexpected defeat was Steve Bannon’s swan song. The Breitbart News executive editor was a huge Roy Moore backer, and lost big on Tuesday, but refuses to give up on his war against the GOP establishment. According to a Newsweek report, Bannon described himself as “totally uncowed” following the election results despite the set-back. He plans to rush headlong into 2018, but wants to make sure that future candidates express his message of economic populism more forcefully than Judge Moore.…

Senator Rand Paul Won’t Vote For Spending Bill That Adds To Deficit

But there are a handful of politicians who will make difficult positions and stick to them, one of them being the son of former Texas Congressman Ron Paul.

Senator Bernie Sanders Opposes Impeachment Of President Donald Trump

Impeachment has become a hot button topic for liberal and progressive activists. In their view, the President is wrecking America with his constant criticisms of the mainstream media and unconventional political approach. In some of the most extreme views, Trump is showing an increasingly unstable temperament, which raises concern about his mental competency. In the view of the left, we’re entering dangerous territory. Yet when impeachment hit the floor, many Democrats opposed the measure. Leadership in the Democratic Party remains staunchly opposed to removal of the President. It presents an interesting point, when most on the left describe potentially impeachable…

The Fourth Amendment protects people from unreasonable searches and seizures, though the federal government regularly violates people’s privacy in the digital age.

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…

His crude remarks, his blunt style, and blatant violation of political norms offended Democrats across America. Despite all of these things, they still lost. Though many were united in opposition to then-candidate Trump, they were not united behind a candidate. Although former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was overwhelmingly selected to be the Democratic Party’s presidential nominee, the selection process itself was hardly fair. Despite support of the nominee by Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT), his supporters…

Interestingly, the suggestion that Gillibrand was guilty of using sex to pump up her campaign war chest was confirmed by none other than one of Trump’s other Twitter-foes, Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts. Her response did not deny what Gillibrand had done, only admonished Trump as a slut-shamer for calling…

Obama Shamefully Invokes Godwin’s Law While Whining About Democracy

Changes to the presidency in recent memory have often meant a shift in ideology. Former President Bill Clinton was a liberal Democrat, but George W. Bush was a neoconservative. The most recent member of the ex-presidents’ club, Barack Obama, began as a progressive Democrat before finding his way to the establishment. While initially staying quiet, he has recently become more vocal in criticizing his successor. Like many Democrats, Obama seems to believe we’re living in the apocalypse. While President Donald Trump is no limited government politician, he is far from the satanist dictator his opponents make him sound like. Are…

Ever since, CNN and the President have been swiping at each other. Mainstream media networks, publications, anchors and journalists all like to claim that they’re under attack.

This is the issue with the constant hyperbole from left-wing agitators.
