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

in News/Politics

Congress has a spending problem, much like the rest of the federal government. Most elected politicians are fine with pushing their pet projects and making heavy promises without concern for the overall financial condition of the nation. 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 Rand Paul (R-Kentucky) announced that he will not vote an end-of-year spending bill that adds to the deficit. In a tweet, the Senator stated he could not in good conscience vote to add to…

Senator Bernie Sanders Opposes Impeachment Of President Donald Trump

in News/Politics

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 Gynocentric Vengeance Of Megyn Kelly

in Politics

Recently, we have seen an orgy of sexual harassment charges levied against various celebrities, politicians and even chefs. Men have been made to be villains as a group, and women are flocking to the #MeToo hashtag to tell all sorts of sordid stories of the inhumanity of men. Starting with Harvey Weinstein and then Al Franken and John Conyers, there has been an avalanche of accusations. Roy Moore has been made out to be a child predator without any proof that wasn’t forged. But the movement continues on through tonight’s Alabama special election. Our media masters have already found all…

CNN Accuses President Trump Of Bullying As They Doxx Private Individuals

in News/Politics

‘The escalating war of words between CNN and President Donald Trump only continues to get worse. President Trump believes he is taking a stand against fake news, a label he has given to the network and other mainstream media sources. CNN, on the other hand, views itself as a frontline defender of the free press and democracy. The claim among many against the President is that his attacks are a threat to the First Amendment. President Trump attacked a recent news story claiming he watches 4-8 hours of television per day. The story was picked up by a number of…

Christie V. NCAA: The Modern Fight For The Tenth Amendment

in Law/Politics

In modern America, the Bill of Rights is treated as a suggestion booklet. The Second Amendment states that the right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed, through it is often limited and watered down by excessive regulation. The Fourth Amendment protects people from unreasonable searches and seizures, though the federal government regularly violates people’s privacy in the digital age. These are just some of the many numerous examples. And then there’s the Tenth Amendment. The Tenth Amendment has a fairly straight-forward premise. Whatever is not specifically authorized for the federal government or prohibited for the states is…

Mainstream Media Still Doesn’t Understand Why Fake News Label Exists

in Politics

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…

Democrats Still Not Ready To Let Go Of Superdelegates Under New Leadership

in News/Politics

For liberals and progressives, 2016 will be remembered as the year that they lost to Donald Trump. The businessman-turned-politician was never supposed to win. 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…

Elizabeth Warren Suggests Kristen Gillibrand Had Sex For Campaign Contributions In Tweet

in News/Politics

This morning, President Donald Trump focused the power of his twitter on yet another Swamp creature: New York Senator Kristen Gillibrand. Trump proclaimed that the “disloyal” and “lightweight” Gillibrand “would do anything” for campaign contributions. The obvious implication here being that she would perform Harvey Weinstein-esque acts for the cash. 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…

The Strange Resignation Of Senator Al Franken

in Politics

Allegations of sexual misconduct are piling up inside and outside of Washington D.C. Powerful men in society from the mainstream media to Capitol Hill are being taken down by claims that they acted inappropriately. In numerous instances, the targeted figures admit wrongdoing, beg for forgiveness, and disappear into private life. Prominent examples include fallen media titans Charlie Rose and Matt Lauer, both of which admitted to the allegations to some degree before resigning. Senator Al Franken (D-MN) gave a resignation speech, but his was far different. For weeks now, the allegations were piling up. It started with Leeann Tweeden alleging…

Obama Shamefully Invokes Godwin’s Law While Whining About Democracy

in History/Politics

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…

CNN’s Desperate Damage Control Effort Backfires Spectacularly

in Politics

CNN and the right have long been at odds. While MSNBC has always been considered more overtly liberal, CNN has carried the nickname “Clinton News Network” for some time. It carries that nickname for good reason. The battle became personal when Donald Trump entered the political arena and went to war with the network. 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. When President Trump labels them as fake news, he’s apparently wanting to shut down the free press. This isn’t…

President Trump Catches The Washington Post Lying About Crowd Size

in Politics

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.…

One Day Away From The Election, Roy Moore Surges To Commanding Lead In The Polls

in News/Politics

Judge Roy Moore ran for the US Senate to help President Trump drain the swamp and make America great again, but the road there has not been easy. He has been crucified in the weeks leading up to the Alabama special senate election, with establishment forces of the left and the right combining to malign him as a predator and a sexual deviant. But those none of those smears have stuck, and the most recent poll conducted by Emerson College shows Moore leading Jones by nine points one day away from the special election. “The poll sampled 600 likely voters…

Liberal Comedian Sarah Silverman Is Fine With Rape Jokes Because Of Partisanship

in News/Politics

The incident involving liberal commentator Sam Seder at MSNBC was bizarre. After a tweet surfaced where he made a rape joke about his daughter, he was let go by the network. The tweet was made about Roman Polanski, stating he didn’t care about him, “but I hope if my daughter is ever raped it is by an older truly talented man w/a great sense of mise en scene.” Reprehensible language that any respectable organization should disavow. The problem is that Seder’s fan-base of celebrity and internet liberals came to his rescue, defending him despite joking about raping his daughter. One…

Al Franken Predicted His Own Political Sex Scandal Twenty Years Ago

in Politics

The saga surrounding Senator Al Franken has been interesting, to say the least. In just a matter of weeks, he’s gone from being a speculative contender for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2020 to a disgraced politician forced out of office. Numerous individuals have come forward alleging different episodes of sexual misconduct, some during his prior career as a comedian and some after his change to a politician. He’s claimed he either cannot recall these incidents or just flat out denies them, but still resigned from the U.S. Senate anyway. His comedy career has presented an unusual issue for people…

Former Clinton Aide Slams Senator Gillibrand For Taking Stand Against Sexual Assault

in Politics

The political world has been shaken and turned upside down by the wave of sexual misconduct allegations facing both parties. From Representatives John Conyers and Trent Franks to Senator Al Franken, both political parties have been faced with enormous scandals. The proper course of action at this point would be to address the issue directly and ensure it doesn’t continue. Investigations need to occur and where misconduct is found, resignation or removal needs to happen. This is a point some are getting in both parties, while others are failing. For Democrats, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi struggled in the beginning…

Why Do Modern Political Parties Fear Using Impeachment?

in Politics

Impeachment is a powerful tool within the Constitution. The Constitution features a series of checks and balances to keep the branches in order, but impeachment allows for the direct removal of officials from government. So why isn’t it used? With the exception of former President Bill Clinton, there has been no use of the process in recent memory. Does this mean all modern Presidents of the United States have acted with the utmost integrity? Hardly. Former President George W. Bush was widely despised by Democrats. Liberals and progressives were regularly protesting a man they saw as a hardcore warmonger. The…

Thomas Massie: NRA “Duped” By Leftist “Bait And Switch” Into Supporting Gun Control!

Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) is fighting mad that the majority of Republicans are supporting gun control in the House and Senate. The Fix NICS bill, endorsed by the NRA and supported by all but 10 GOP lawmakers in the House, is a deceptive gun control measure that was paired with concealed carry reciprocity in order to bamboozle conservatives, Massie argues. Massie claims that the NRA was even working behind the scenes to bully legislators with threats into voting for Fix NICS as it was, preventing the gun control provisions of the legislation from being separated from concealed carry reciprocity. According…

MSNBC Rehires Sam Seder, Lets His Joke About Child Rape Slide

in News/Politics

Sexual misconduct has become a big issue in American society and rightfully so. There is no excuse for violating anyone’s personal space, forcing them to do things against their will, and otherwise showing a blatant disrespect for their personal being. What began with allegations against prominent Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein has turned into an avalanche that is taking down powerful men across America. Prominent news anchors such as Matt Lauer and Charlie Rose have been forced out, while resignations have come from major politicians such as John Conyers and Al Franken. Then another member of the mainstream media was hit…

Rand Paul Scores Big Political Victory With The Announcement Of Annual Pentagon Audit

in News/Politics

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) has fought for transparency and accountability within government since he was elected. Paul is the leading proponent of auditing the Federal Reserve, an issue championed by his father, but a lesser known proposal of Paul’s is to audit the Pentagon. Paul will be getting his wish from the Trump administration, as the Pentagon recently announced they would be conducting an annual audit. “The Defense Department is starting the first agency-wide financial audit in its history,” the Pentagon’s news service announced. The Pentagon is using news of this new annual audit to boast about their supposed dedication…

Justice Department To Probe Planned Parenthood

in News/Politics

The Justice Department has informed the Senate Judiciary Committee that it will be probing Planned Parenthood in a letter requesting unredacted documents. The Senate Judiciary Committee had previously probed the controversial abortion organization over allegations that it profited off of the transfer of aborted babies’ body and tissue to research organizations. Senator Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) later referred the matter to the Federal Bureau of Investigation. In doing so, Sen. Grassley believed the Committee had acquired enough evidence to warrant an investigation. Last month, the FBI requested documents received from abortion providers, signaling an investigation was underway. With two agencies within…

Yes, We Can Have The 20 Percent Corporate Tax Rate — Next Month!

in Economics/Politics

Former Lieutenant Governor Betsy McCaughey (R – New York) has discovered the formula for delivering a 20 percent corporate-tax rate in 2018 — as the U.S. House wishes — not 2019, as the Senate voted, thus flirting with GOP political suicide. McCaughey, a senior fellow with the London Center for Policy Research (as am I), offered a delightfully simple plan in Wednesday’s New York Post: “This beautiful committee,” as President Trump dubbed the House-Senate conference, should accept the House’s January 1, 2018 date for the corporate tax to plunge from today’s 35 percent rate to a new, paradigm-shifting 20 percent. And how would conferees “pay for” such history-making tax relief for American…

NRA-Republican Backed Bill Makes It Easier For Feds To Disarm Citizens

in Politics

On Wednesday, the Republican controlled house voted to further federalize gun laws in this country. While Ryan McMaken has noted the danger in further centralizing gun legislation, there is another deeply troubling aspect to this bill: it expands the ability of the Federal government to restrict Americans’ right to bear arms. During the legislative process, the NRA supported merging the bill aimed at nationalizing concealed carry permits with another piece of legislation aimed at “fixing” the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS.) Obviously this legislation was inspired by the failure of the US Air Force to report the criminal record of Devin…

Governor Paul LePage Calls Senate Candidacy Reports “Fake News”

Rumors have continued to swirl that Maine Governor Paul LePage is considering a candidacy for United States Senate, even after he declared earlier this year he had no intention to do so. Even his wife, Ann, has been swept up in the rumors. Steve Bannon had reportedly sought to recruit Ann LePage to run, something the Governor’s wife confirmed in a radio interview. Now more recently, the Washington Post reported that President Donald Trump himself wanted the Governor to run against Senator Angus King. Though an Independent, King generally caucuses with Democrats and aligns with liberals. This has made him…

Friendly Fire: Roger Stone And Charles Johnson Fight Over Credit For Trump Debate Stunt

There is never any shortage of drama going on within the right wing. When they aren’t hammering leftists, right wingers are often focusing their ire on each other. Roger Stone, the hot-headed Trump confidant, is fighting mad at news mogul Charles Johnson because of a dispute over who orchestrated a legendary Trump debate stunt. Before the Oct. 9 debate last year and immediately following the bombshell release of Trump’s ‘grab her by the p-ssy’ audio, Trump hosted a press conference featuring Bill Clinton’s alleged victims. On the debate stage that night, Trump came out swinging like never before – with…

Flynn’s Sin Was Lying To Liars, Not Colluding With Russians

in Politics

Retired US Army Lieutenant General Michael Flynn’s sin was lying to liars, not colluding with Russians. When he spoke to Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak, following Donald Trump’s 2016 election, former National Security Advisor Flynn was discharging a perfectly legal and patriotic duty to the electorate. In a fit of pique, then-President Barack Obama had expelled Russian diplomats from the United States. K. T. McFarland, Flynn’s deputy in the Trump transition team, worried that Obama’s expulsion of the diplomats was aimed at “boxing Trump in diplomatically,” making it impossible for the president to “improve relations with Russia,” a promise he ran…

Former House Speaker John Boehner long held control for Republicans in the House of Representatives, but stood down after mounting pressure and handed over control to Romney’s former running mate, Paul Ryan.

Venezuelan Collapse Is Golden Opportunity To Showcase American Superiority

Among its top ransom demands, the government in Caracas wants to restructure its enormous and dynamic debt burden.

Why Tax Breaks Won’t Stop High-Tech, H-1B Human Trafficking

The question “If the tax reform bill goes through, do you plan to increase your company’s capital investment?” was posed to a sizable group of corporate chieftains at The Wall Street Journal’s CEO Council, in the presence of White House economic adviser Gary Cohn. A pitiful show of hands failed to wipe the smirk off Mr. Cohn’s face. But at least the knaves were candid. Tax cuts for American big businesses are unlikely to move corporations to deploy that capital to raise the wages of the little guy, the worker.

When Donald Trump became President, libertarians hoped that he would bring a hard-nosed business mentality to government. Trump has delivered by announcing his plans to sell off up to 90 percent of a national park in Utah, an unprecedented move nullifying a key achievement of his predecessor. President Trump spoke in Salt Lake City, UT today to announce that he would be drastically reducing the 1.3 million acre Bears Ears National Monument down to 228,784 acres split between two separate areas.

It wasn’t just excessive caution by concerned libertarians, and it wasn’t just technology organizations arguing extreme hypotheticals. It was fact. After Snowden’s numerous revelations dropped, there was a widespread push for reform. Some people were shocked by the revelations, others were largely unsurprised. If there is one thing…
