Awkward: Trump’s Wall Is A Progressive Policy

‘This Congress is going to be the busiest Congress in decades — maybe ever.’’ With these words, President Donald Trump urged fellow Republicans in Congress to help him halt illegal immigration by supporting his plan to build a United States-Mexico border wall. But a wall that isn’t erected by the private land owners bordering Mexican land owners isn’t a wall. It’s government spending. And if government is spending, someone else is footing the bill. That someone is you and me. Keep Reading

Women’s Rights March Is Masquerade for Presidential Insults

Less than 24 hours following President Donald Trump’s historic inauguration, hundreds of thousands of activists assembled around the country and different parts of the world in support of Women’s Rights. Many demonstrators marched proudly, displaying their knitted pink stocking caps complete with cute kitten ears cleverly referred to as ‘Pussy Hats’. The caps became a symbol of outrage toward sexually explicit comments made by President Trump over a decade ago. In addition to the caps, other feminist marchers dressed up in vagina costumes to send a message to the President: “this pussy is not for grabbin’!” Demonstrators arrived with picket signs… Keep Reading

CNN lied about using BuzzFeed’s fake news report regarding Trump’s Russian ties

The final weeks of the President Barack Obama’s administration have been marked by a tumultuous transition as the world inches closer to experiencing a Trump administration. Fears over Russian interference within the United States during the presidential election have evolved into full blown hysteria, involving a plot by Russian intelligence to use President-elect Trump as a puppet. Enter BuzzFeed. Keep Reading

Betsy DeVos: Opening the Hearts and Minds of America

President-Elect Donald Trump’s new Education Secretary, Betsy DeVos, is the best pick in the history of the Department of Education since its inception, in this veteran teacher’s opinion. With her school choice prescription, she is just the medicine that a failing educational system needs to restore it to health. Her long time support of the Charter school movement is one key reform element, but the one that will be transformational will be vouchers or tax credits for any private school a parent decides to send their child to. The public school monopoly, headed by the National Education Association, is the… Keep Reading

Denial and Dudgeon in the Millennial Generation

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

The Trump Rally: Stocks Fly High As Confidence Surges

The election of President-elect Donald Trump last month has awakened, what some people are calling, the “animal spirits” of capitalism. Anyone with a 401k or money in the stock market could tell you that things are going very well at the moment. The election of President-elect Trump and conservative, pro-market Republican majorities in the House and Senate represents a turning of the page from eight years of growing tax burden, government spending, and red tape. The Trump Rally, as some pundits are calling it, has resulted in the Dow Jones Industrial Average jumping 1,600 points since 2016’s election day. Such… 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. For all the allegations of pushing biased stories or overtly fake news, they have… Keep Reading

Trump supporter burning down Mississippi church exposed as a hoax

This election has seen America devolve into a worse state of bitter partisanship. Harsh stereotypes about both sides became more prominent than ever before. Republican businessman Donald Trump is a bitter misogynistic racist, despite being friendly with women and people of varying races. 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. The ramping up of the negative rhetoric grew worse as the left continued an onslaught of propaganda and negative attacks. The Never Trump… Keep Reading

If only the rights of everyday Americans mattered as much as Hillary Clinton’s

If there’s one thing that Hillary Clinton allies and supporters established last year, it’s that she was the victim of the year. Nobody in the world has been more targeted and more oppressed than her. 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. She’s established her record. Clinton is above us all. It is for this reason the rules do not apply to her. Chelsea Manning is sitting in prison after releasing classified information to whistleblower website Wikileaks. Before her trial,… 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. Former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson ran in 2012 and boosted the Libertarian Party. After the Republican National Committee ran over the campaign of former Congressman Ron Paul with questionable conduct and sketchy procedures, libertarians and conservatives were left looking elsewhere. Come 2016, would Johnson repeat his popularity and even boost it beyond his previous… Keep Reading

Defend Our President from the Warfare State

Old habits die hard in the CIA.  Overthrowing democratically elected governments is one of those bad habits, but this time it’s our government. Through anonymous sources in the Deep State, it is alleged in the George Soros affiliated Washington Post, that Russian hackers handed the White House to Donald Trump: “The CIA has concluded in a secret assessment that Russia intervened in the 2016 election to help Donald Trump win the presidency, rather than just to undermine confidence in the U.S. electoral system, according to officials briefed on the matter.” The Trump team hit back hard, pointing out that this is the… Keep Reading

SPLC: Dallas Ambush, Orlando Shooting “Right Wing Terror”

The highly politicized Southern Poverty Law Center keeps a list of “Terror From the Right” attacks. SPLC describes the list as a “detailed listing of major terrorist plots and racist rampages that have emerged from the American radical right.” Included on that list are Dallas police shooter Micah Xavier Johnson and Orlando nightclub shooter Omar Mateen. Mateen, a security officer from Florida, opened fire inside Pulse, a gay nightclub in Orlando, FL. He killed fifty individuals, including himself, and left scores more injured. Rumored to be a gay former patron of Pulse, Mateen called 911 during the attack, making references… Keep Reading

Joy Behar Is Free to Hate on Trump, So Why Can’t Women Hate Clinton?

On Friday, “The View” host and comedian Joy Behar asked co-hosts why does she “have to be so nice” about President-elect Donald Trump. “If [Republicans] didn’t like Obama, it was about his politics,” she added. “[Trump] is about what he said,” and because of that, Joy vowed to be “the thorn in his side as long as I breathe.” So far, so good. After all, don’t we all take pride in the fact we can disagree (somewhat) freely in the United States? The problem is that as the marriage between special interests and state power players remains in place, outlets… Keep Reading

A Procession of Dinosaurs

Greg Lake’s musical career began at the age of twelve when his mother bought him a guitar. The first song he wrote, “Lucky Man”, would turn out to be the most memorable track recorded by the progressive rock supergroup Emerson, Lake & Palmer. The momentum of the progressive rock scene was cut short in the mid-seventies by the emergence of a musical reformation lead by stripped down groups like The Ramones, The Clash, and The Sex Pistols. The latter’s frontman, Johnny Rotten, labeled the decadence of ELP, and other similar bands like Pink Floyd, as “dinosaur” rock. To punks on… Keep Reading

Trump As Antidote to Partisan Favoritism

In America, a song by The Strokes’ lead singer Julian Casablancas explains, “cities come together to hate each other in the name of sport.” In politics, the sentiment is very similar — if not identical. Too often, people who identify either as conservative or liberal will bring up examples of politicians involved in wrongdoing that should not be ignored by their supporters. In response, political enemies will claim ignorance while on other occasions, they will flat-out deny any wrongdoing claim. It’s common to see these folks living in denial throughout their pet politician’s full term, ignoring calls for justice even… Keep Reading

Total War: Fight Fire with Fire

The political left wins because it follows the tactic of total and continual war. It does not walk away from any election with the idea that combat can wait until the next election cycle. More importantly, they often make their biggest gains when out of power, precisely because they position themselves as “aggrieved” and “offended” and do not need to compromise to try to pass legislation. “Fake News” is just another one of their tactics. We are all talking about it now because the Left is very capable in defining the topics of the time, as a result of their… Keep Reading

No Better Friend, No Worse Enemy

General James Mattis has been selected by President-elect Trump to succeed our country’s current Secretary of Defense, Ash Carter. The response to this choice has been almost universally praised as Mattis’ reputation for intelligence, innovation, and honor have preceded him since he first began his climb to prominence during the Persian Gulf War. He is not without his critics. There are those who believe in preserving a strict status of civilian control over the military, a policy and sentiment that are not without worth. Because of this tradition, there is a law in place which requires former military officers to… Keep Reading

The Death of Definition: How 2016 Reset America’s Political Spectrum

Among the many time-honored structures left in ruins by the 2016 presidential process, perhaps nothing has suffered more than our comfortable set of political labels. Terms like “conservative”, “progressive”, “liberal”, “libertarian”, and even “classic liberal” (courtesy, Speaker Paul Ryan) have been growing dull for years, but this year seems to have become so useless that warring activists under each label were forced to drop their weapons, crawl out of their respective trenches, scratch their heads, and try to figure out which side they really belonged on. Who can blame them? Every election has its share of word-bending, but 2016 dropkicked… Keep Reading

Keep Calling Your Opponents “Racists” and You Will Keep Losing!

Just moments before I proceeded to write this article, a colleague of mine sent me a link to the Facebook wall of Tim Wise, a white self-avowed “anti-racist.”  I will not bother relaying Wise’s tirade of a post.  Rather, it is the article to which he links that is of interest. The latest edition of The Atlantic refers to the National Policy Institute (NPI), a small think tank that met in Washington D.C. this past weekend for its annual conference.  NPI describes itself as “an independent organization dedicated to the heritage, identity, and future of people of European descent in… Keep Reading

Don’t Want a ‘Muslim Registry?’ Abolish the Census

People on the Internet have lost all but one of their collective screws this past week. Again. As President-elect Donald Trump met with Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach — a potential pick for the head Department of Homeland Security — the Internet lit up with the leaked contents of their meeting, triggering another round of talks concerning a possible “national registry” of Americans or immigrants who subscribe to Islam. While Kobach’s plan involves the George W.

Crybaby Culture

Over the past several years, those of us on the right have watched in semi-stupefied horror as the traditions and morals that serve as the bedrock of our culture have been eroded under an incessant bombardment of cultural Marxism. Those values that built this nation (not to mention much of western civilization) are under open attack by an army of social justice warriors whose main obsessions are political correctness and the obliteration of anything resembling traditional America: Conventional gender roles, the family unit, modesty and humility, strength – both physical and mental, veneration of our elders, self-respect, gravitas, hard work, etc.… Keep Reading

According to the Washington Examiner, concerns are increasing for President-elect Trump’s top two picks to run the State Department: Rudy Giuliani and John Bolton.  Sources say the Trump transition team is now considering California Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, a leading House foreign policy expert. Rohrabacher, who once worked as a Reagan speechwriter and a House member since 1989, emerged Tuesday night as a possible Trump pick.  He is much more aligned with Trump on foreign policy, immigration and global warming issues.

Did one of Gary Johnson’s high profile endorsements actually vote for Donald Trump?

The New York Times recently interviewed venture capitalist and Trump adviser Peter Thiel, a figure well known to many in the liberty movement for his support for Ron Paul’s 2008 and 2012 campaigns. During the interview, Thiel recounted a discussion with an individual who claimed to be supporting Donald Trump in private, while aligning himself with Gary Johnson in public: “I was having dinner last week with a high-profile venture capitalist and he said, ‘I’m voting for Trump but I have to lie and tell everyone I’m voting for Gary Johnson,’” the third-party candidate, said Mr. Thiel. “He was stunningly… Keep Reading

Parents who plan on refinancing their homes in order to send their children off to college should instead consider encouraging them to specialize in a trade. Speaking as a Ph.D. in philosophy who has spent the last 17 years teaching at the college level, I’m perhaps the last person from whom advice of this sort is expected. But it is precisely because of my familiarity with academia that I beseech the college bound and their enablers—I mean their supporters—to revisit their plans. Whether one regards a post-secondary institution as a means to either a remunerative profession or a genuine education,… Keep Reading

The Fall of Paul Ryan

“Paul Ryan” are “fightin’ words” to nationalist patriots like myself and others on the Trump Train. Ryan will be DOA should he put his hat in the ring in the 2020 GOP primaries. We nationalist patriots simply are too numerous within the ranks of GOP primary and caucus voters. The globalists (open borders, free trade, gradual loss of sovereignty through various multinational treaty arrangements) will transition over to the Democrat Party as they become more comfortable with the globalist policies of the Clinton Crime Syndicate. Some globalist libertarians may run third party, but that will fail when it is clear… Keep Reading

What Donald Trump Should Have Said to America

It’s become increasingly likely that the election is already over, and Donald Trump will lose to Hillary Clinton. However, there does remain a few glimmers of hope – one being the insurgent candidacy of Evan McMullin, and his “deny 270” strategy, the other being Trump’s withdrawal from the race. During the final debate with Hillary Clinton, when the candidates were given time to make a closing statement, in the interest of preserving the United States of America, and preventing the catastrophic damage a Clinton Presidency would unleash, Donald Trump should have used all his time (and take all the time he needed) to… Keep Reading

The Establishment, The Real Deplorables

To those who say that Trump is going to lose this election: conventional wisdom agrees with you, as do the various betting pools out there. Of course, Brexit reminds us that the anti-establishment, populist vote in this election cycle is probably larger than the polls would indicate. Still, is it likely that lightning will strike the same place twice and give us two Brexits in the same year? Again, conventional wisdom would say no, which is why you have history, most current polls, and common sense on your side when you say that the election is lost. My sense is that… Keep Reading

October Surprise Over Syria’s Skies?

You may not have read about this in the mainstream news, but The Wall Street Journal  reported that there was a Russian air strike in June on a CIA-linked base which was a part of a campaign by Russia to pressure Obama to agree to closer cooperation over the Syrian skies, according to U.S. military and intelligence officials.   Four rebels were killed in that attack near the Jordanian border in the attempt to coax Obama to the negotiating table.  Possibly the Russians were upset that the US would not share any intelligence with them, so they may have sent a message… Keep Reading

The First Presidential Debate: The Crook vs. The Clod

The first debate between the two least-admired nominees in electoral memory was a puerile display; an embarrassing 90-minute bum fight detrimental to the viewing public and inimical to a Republic which once had higher standards. At the end of 90 minutes, it is clear that Trump knows little to nothing about foreign policy, global economics, and how the Constitution works; while Hillary knows little to nothing about integrity, honesty and how the Constitution works. They are – both of them – unfit for the office, with Hillary being worse. Yes, Lester Holt asked Trump many negative questions (about tax returns, the “birther” issue, the… Keep Reading

Alt-Left: “Racism,” “Supremacy,” and “Extremism”

Not long ago, National Review writer Jonah Goldberg discussed the “alt-right” with Hugh Hewitt on the latter’s talk radio show.  They agreed that, at bottom, the movement upon which Hillary Clinton bestowed national recognition last month was “racist” and “supremacist.”  As such, it deserved to be purged from the GOP and the conservative movement. The notion that there is an alt-right is highly suspect, for there can be an alt-right only if there is a right.  But, contrary to what Democrats and Republicans alike would have us think, there is no genuine right in contemporary American politics.  So, there is… Keep Reading

The Russian Game vs. Trump

The idea that we must include Russia in any redrawing of national boundaries derives from two dubious assumptions, in my opinion. First, it smacks of a “great powers” approach to global management, which reached its zenith just after the Second World War (UN Security Council and Bretton Woods), and which since then has been shown to be a poor mechanism for global peace and security. Seldom has the UN Security Council cooperated effectively to prevent or to end a war in some part of the world; and when it does, such as when they condemned Iraq’s invasion of Kuwait prior… Keep Reading

Personally Holy & Wholly Ineffective

This November, for some Christians, personal holiness will dictate a protest vote against Donald Trump. Is this really conscience, or something darker? Over my years as a believer, I’ve seen personal holiness measured in strange ways. One Sunday morning, after my wife was introduced to a member of the praise team as a “baby Christian,” one of the singers leaned in towards her, with a weird mix of intense curiosity and mystical reserve, and asked: “Have you witnessed yet?” I remember the odd silence between us as we walked out to our car that morning; we had failed this woman’s… Keep Reading

Something sorely lacking in the Trump/#NeverTrump debate is, well, debate. Most people only sally out briefly on social media to make their case, before quickly retreating back to their support group – and that doesn’t help anyone sort out the truth of the matter. But as the specter of Hillary rises over the nearing November election and Trump continues to trail in the polls, the urgency of winning over #NeverTrump Republicans is becoming apparent. The problem for Team Trump is that some people really mean never. This debate addresses the questions of the Supreme Court, Trump’s “outsider” status, viable options… Keep Reading

Moreover, they paint with a broad brush when it comes to the motivations of people, like myself, who oppose illegal immigration.

Furthermore, they make the unsourced claims that opposition… Keep Reading

Trump Condemns Globalism In Incredible Convention Speech

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump assailed globalism in his 2016 convention speech, where he aligned himself with the American people over the political elites. “Remember: all of the people telling you that you can’t have the country you want, are the same people telling you that I wouldn’t be standing here tonight,” Trump declared. “No longer can we rely on those elites in media, and politics, who will say anything to keep a rigged system in place.” During the speech, Trump condemned the regime change wars that had been promoted by the political elites, echoing former Rep.

I do not believe that Trump has any interest in maintaining a political coalition if he loses in November. He is not a career political activist concerned about building a movement that may survive his retirement. I saw much the same phenomenon with Ross Perot after he lost in 1992. He had put a lot of his own money in converting the United We Stand grassroots operation (predecessor of the Tea Party in many ways) into a political party (Reform Party), but he largely abandoned the party once it became clear he would never be President.

Trump’s New Nationalism and the Defeat of the Cronies

Regarding the defeat of the insurgents at the RNC, it should be noted that they were defeated fair and square. There was no denial of the process afforded any member of the Rules Committee. The fact that the insurgents did not have enough votes to force a change in the rules does not suggest anti-democratic tyranny. It would be a different story if the RNC arbitrarily suspended the meeting of the Rules Committee, or gave the insurgents the wrong time and place (both tactics I have seen happen at California State GOP Conventions in the past), but nothing like that… Keep Reading

Ultimately, the goodness of eternal motherhood wins out over the inhumanity of man towards those he differs with.  Today a modern story of intolerance is being played out in the streets of America as those on the far left try to intimidate and… Keep Reading
