Slate Magazine’s Ruth Graham Calls For Men To Be Removed From The Workforce

in Culture by

Ruth Graham is a contributor for Slate and also a Granite Stater which is the only nice thing I can say about her after reading her recent piece entitled, “It’s Time to Admit That Allowing Men Into the Workforce Was a Mistake.” I don’t know if Ruth meant this as satire or a bad joke but it’s standard fare from the man-hating, white-hating, anti-American Left and it deserves a rebuttal. She begins by saying, “American men entered the workforce in unprecedented numbers as they returned from World War II, and employers welcomed these men as a matter of patriotic duty.”…

The Evolution Of Anti-Trumpism

in Politics by

In the beginning was the word, and the word was that Trump is Putin’s marionette.  And there is a secret collusion between Putin and Trump.  Then we were assured that not Trump himself, but his close associates were involved in a criminal conspiracy with the Kremlin.  This narrative soon was replaced by the story that Trump’s men had no criminal ties with the Russians.  Instead, they suspiciously met them often and even dared (what a horror!) to talk to them on the phone to do business with them, like selling inexpensive condos in Florida to Russian oligarchs at inflated prices.…

America Lost The Cold War

in Politics/World by

Upon reading the title of this article, you were likely confused, if not gobsmacked by the idea. “‘America lost the Cold War?!’ Absurd!” I can hear you saying. And indeed, the very thought of it seems pretty absurd–after all, The USA is still around, and the Soviet Union has long since collapsed. That should summarily disprove the very thesis of this article…right? As you could probably assume, I am going to be arguing contrary to that fact, mainly due to one reason: The Cold War was allegedly never supposed to be about defeating The Soviet Union…so much as it was…

Justice Department Changes Stance On Lois Lerner Scandal Under Trump Administration

in Politics by

A scandal that rocked the Internal Revenue Service and the political right was frequently brushed aside by Democrats. The view of the Democratic Party and its aligned politicians was that it was a politically motivated attack that was overblown for partisan purposes. While they were right about it being politically motivated, it was only partisan in nature because the government under a Democratic administration made it that way. The Justice Department predictably failed to do its job and advance justice under the Obama administration. Despite Lois Lerner and the IRS using tax law to attack political opponents, nothing was ever…

Why Gary Johnson Is Wrong About The System Coming Down To Two Parties

in Philosophy/Politics by

The popular two-term Republican Governor turned two-time failed Libertarian presidential candidate recently revealed that the third time is not a charm. In a Fox Business interview, he stated that he would not be running for office again in the next election. While many libertarians may breathe a sigh of relief after his poor showing in the last election cycle, he made another statement that is interesting. The two-time Libertarian Party candidate for President of the United States stated that everything does boil down to the parties. Essentially, because he couldn’t break through, Johnson thinks that it’s impossible for a third…

Cultural Marxism Is The Greatest Threat To Liberty And Needs To Be Crushed

in Philosophy by

In the 1970s, the suffering caused by Communism had become so obvious, that no leftist wished to be associated with economic Marxism or Marx in general, lest they lose any credibility they once held. In order to stop this accusation from spreading, leftists from the Frankfurt School and Post-Modernist thinkers developed social theories which primarily focused on the power struggle between different groups. By removing economics from the equation, these “Cultural Marxists” expanded Marx’s “class struggle” beyond bourgeois vs. proletarian. Under the critical theory of the Cultural Marxists, this class struggle extended to anyone of a so-called “oppressor” class vs.…

Senators Bob Corker And Jeff Flake Are Political Showboats

in Politics by

Political hyperbole is nothing new in history. Since the earliest of elections, political opponents have spoken ill of each other and gotten quite heated. Even in recent years, excessive hyperbole and overblown insults are the norm. Former President George W. Bush was often compared to Adolf Hitler, despite the fact he didn’t murder millions of people or consolidate his country into a total dictatorship. Former President Barack Obama was often compared to a number of socialist and communist tyrants in history, despite never quite reaching the extremes of the murderous and tyrannical. And now it is Donald Trump’s turn in…

The Declassified JFK Files And The Assassination Blame Game

in History/Politics by

History is always changing over time. As perspectives shift and fresh minds assess old information, events are judged from varying points of view. Sometimes history is even lucky enough to benefit from new information and these nuggets can fill in the blanks. But sometimes, we get remarkable insight and a treasure trove of information. This is shown by the recently declassified files relating to the assassination of former President John F. Kennedy. While there was no bombshell about government involvement, additional shooters or confirmation of some other conspiracy theory, history has been updated and expanded a bit. An interesting tidbit…

Recent Dossier Revelations Show Democrats To Be Hypocrites On Foreign Influence

in Politics by

The narrative has been fairly consistent since businessman Donald Trump was elected to the White House. At best, he was boosted by a foreign government and his inner associates may have sought the help of the Russians. At worst, the President himself could be compromised. These are very real concerns Democrats have had for months. News such as Donald Trump Jr. meeting with Russian officials to gain dirt on Hillary Clinton provoked national outrage. The mainstream media lost its mind as prominent Democratic politicians and progressive activists all sounded the alarm. Regardless of whether Trump Jr’s move was right or…

Niger: Finally, A War John McCain Doesn’t Love

in Politics/World by

News first broke about America’s Niger misadventure on October 4. “The real news here is that the US has forces in Niger, where they’re conducting covert operations,” this writer tweeted out. “Hashtag America First.” Official media ignored the ambush of the American Special Forces, until the story gained anti-Trump traction. No word came from Sen. John McCain (R-AZ). Three weeks hence, the senator from Arizona is making history. McCain, who has never encountered a war he wasn’t eager to prosecute, is questioning the folly in Niger. The senator from Arizona can run but can’t hide from the pollution he has…

The Tax Increase In Reform’s Clothing

in Economics/Politics by

In a 2011 piece for the New York Times, leftist billionaire Warren Buffett claimed that investment managers are getting “extraordinary tax breaks,” due to the classification of income from managing others’ money as “capital gains.” “Some of us are investment managers who earn billions from our daily labors but are allowed to classify our income as ‘carried interest,’ thereby getting a bargain 15 percent tax rate,” Buffett said, always portaying himself as the patriotic rich man willing to pay his “fair share” of taxes. Under the current tax code, capital gains are taxed at 15 percent, rather than the top tax rate…

The Lies Of John McCain Are Nothing New

in Politics by

It was a little while ago that Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) was awarded the Liberty Medal from the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia.  The Liberty Medal is given to those who have “secured the blessings of personal liberty to people the world over.” In the speech, McCain spoke brashly about the current President. It is beyond alarming that this particular award was given to a Senator who has constantly ignored the damage done to civil liberties in the search for “national security.” Sen. McCain has never worried about past conflicts started without Congressional approval, not at least until Donald Trump…

How George W. Bush Went From Liberal Pariah To Hero

in Politics by

Eight years of the Bush Administration and liberals across America had more than enough of George W. Bush and Dick Cheney. The President and Vice President at the time, respectively, had reinvented American foreign policy in the aftermath of the September 11th attacks. Although intervention abroad wasn’t exactly new, the War on Terror took things to a new level. With this new emphasis on combating terrorism, domestic policies changed as well. The surveillance state grew significantly and the Bill of Rights eroded. Because of all these developments, liberals called the former President names such as Hitler. Antiwar protests were numerous…

Justin Amash Upholds Jeff Flake’s Sorry Legacy In The House

in Politics by

Yesterday, Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) announced his retirement. Flake, one of the biggest hypocrites and disappointments of the Senate in recent years, thought he could help his political ambitions by opposing Donald Trump. He postured against Trump by constantly visiting Mosques, rubbing elbows with Planned Parenthood, and echoing Democratic talking points. He thought this would put him on the path for the Presidency; instead, it put him on the unemployment line. Unfortunately for libertarians and free market conservatives, a man believed to be their champion has adopted Flake’s poor strategy in the House, and it could lose him his seat…

Is Donald Trump The Most Dangerous President Ever?

in Politics by

Political hyperbole is nothing new in American politics. Even in recent memory, former President George W. Bush was often called Hitler by liberal opponents and former President Barack Obama was called any number of communist leaders by conservatives. While the merits of these insults is an entirely different debate, their existence has long been a constant. Dirty politics has always had a place. With that said, Trump Derangement Syndrome has brought rise to an entirely new level of hyperbole. The fervent opposition to the President has brought upon this idea that there’s never been a worse President in history. Why? Because…

Is The Supreme Court Really The Ultimate Arbiter Of The Constitution?

in History/Politics by

Americans today consider the Supreme Court to be the final arbiter of the Constitution. Politicians and voters alike will fight tooth and nail over legal questions facing the judicial system, even criticizing Supreme Court rulings when initially handed down. But give a Supreme Court decision enough time and Americans eventually acquiesce. The question becomes “settled.” From the banning of prayer and Bible reading in public schools in the 1960s to the recent forced recognition of same-sex “marriage” in all 50 States, the Court’s decisions reign supreme. However, the Supreme Court’s rulings do not enforce themselves. They carry weight because State…

Are The PC Police Now Coming For Halloween?

in Culture/Politics by

It’s almost impossible to not offend someone at any given time in modern America. People have become overly sensitive and the rise of political correctness is even targeting holidays. Christmas is being watered down and actively purged from society. Christmas trees are being renamed holiday trees, despite the tree festivity being clearly associated with Christmas. “Merry Christmas” greetings are morphing into “Happy Holidays,” out of fear someone may be offended by a positive greeting that refers to a specific holiday. Now it appears as though Halloween may be the next target for the PC police in our society. Halloween is…

Can President Trump And Rand Paul Save Healthcare?

in Politics by

Last week, Donald Trump signed a new executive order facilitating more flexibility for consumers of health insurance. The order allows for more flexibility in purchasing insurance across state lines, and greater freedom for both small businesses and groups of consumers in creating “association health plans” (AHPs). In theory, this will broaden access to the benefits currently enjoyed only by those with employment-based insurance, and other types of group insurance. The order also paves the way for healthcare reforms long favored by Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) who believes the reforms will help bring down healthcare costs.

Why Wouldn’t Trump Want Hillary Clinton To Run Again?

in Politics by

Since the early days of his long shot candidacy for President, Donald Trump has trolled the political elite and mainstream media masterfully. He’s shown an ability to push all the right buttons, a talent that didn’t fade after securing the Republican presidential nomination and hasn’t disappeared since becoming President of the United States. The latest stunt has once again involved Twitter, and this time feeds rumors that his former opponent Hillary Clinton would challenge him again in 2020. Despite Clinton herself has said she will not again seek office, this hasn’t stopped speculation from continuing. Should Clinton run for office…

The Next Generation Of Currency Wars: Private Vs. State-Backed Crypto

in Economics by

Recently, Russia announced that it will be unleashing a CryptoRuble, just a week after Vladimir Putin strongly criticized Bitcoin and other private cryptocurrencies.  When announcing the move, Minister of Communications Nikolay Nikiforov acknowledged that it was in part inspired by the aim of getting ahead of other governments: I confidently declare that we run CryptoRuble for one simple reason: if we do not, then after two months our neighbors in the EurAsEC will. In doing so, Russia is following the lead of another country that too has become hostile to private crypto, China. Last July, the People’s Bank of China became the first central…

Liberals Demonstrate Anti-Humanitarian Hypocrisy By Supporting Illegal Immigrant Abortions

in Culture/Politics by

Immigration is a hot button issue. The rise of candidate Donald Trump and his ascension to the White House escalated the controversy surrounding illegal immigration. Under the previous administration of Barack Obama, those who resided here illegally were given greater leniency as undocumented immigrants. When Trump criticized those who could not enter our country lawfully, he was torn to shreds for it by the liberal press. For many pro-illegal immigration liberals, this is a humanitarian issue. Laws regarding immigration are irrelevant when lives are at stake. The issue is a humanitarian issue, but the complicated legal issue runs much deeper…

Libertarianism And The Political Mainstream

in Philosophy/Politics by

Libertarianism has had an interesting relationship with the political mainstream over the last year. After years of being relegated to the fringes of political discourse, it was brought into the fold with the rise of former Congressman Ron Paul. While not everyone agreed with his views, many supported him for his consistency and honesty. His contribution to the liberty movement is perhaps the greatest, and many seem to have forgotten why. Paul approached his presidential campaigns the same way as he did his congressional career. It was never about the accolades, awards, legislative achievements, or history of having a big…

American Foreign Policy Goes Horribly Wrong As Tehran Seizes Control Of Baghdad

in World by

Confusion is a powerful tool. Per media reports that revealed that the Iraqi federal government began operations to take control over the region of Iraqi Kurdistan, a lot of confusion still looms. Within the Beltway, people are lost and questioning whether or not the Trump Administration made the best decision to partake in a stance of neutrality in the Iraqi-Kurd dispute. However, the only thing that can be taken seriously is the fact that many in the international community—including President Donald Trump and the leadership of the United Nations—are non-committal to either side. But, something suggests otherwise. Never mind this…

Roger Stone Claims CIA Is Trying To Stop JFK Document Dump

in History/Politics by

While the official story has largely remained in tact for decades, questions and theories have still loomed regarding JFK’s assassination. The Warren Commission report concluded a long investigation, but countless pages remain classified. Under a 1992 law, the deadline to release the remaining documents is this month. The only person who can stop this release is President Donald Trump, who can intervene under the law to stop the disclosure. To this point, the President has not publicly indicated which way he is leaning on the issue of the document dump. Given the magnitude of the revelations and amount of documents,…

Trump, IQ Tests, And Me

in Culture/History by

In honor of last week’s Trump/Tillerson IQ Test kerfuffle, I decided to do a very politically relevant anthropology article. Well, even more politically relevant than the other times I talk anthropology, a topic that is literally  the most important thing that nobody is talking about. So a few days ago, the president got into a bit of a spat with Rex Tillerson, his Secretary of State, over his perceived stupidity, allegedly challenging him to take an IQ test simultaneously with him. This led to several articles claiming that this very challenge just makes Trump seem even stupider, because “everyone knows” that…
