Black Lives Matter, Or Black Lies Matter?

in Culture/Politics by

Just as FBI Director James Comey confirmed for the world that Hillary Clinton chronically lied about having compromised national security, the “Black Lives Matter” (BLM) crowd stole the media spotlight from the disgraced Democratic presidential nominee. The shooting deaths of Alton Sterling in Louisiana and Philando Castile in Minnesota by police have resurrected with a vengeance the narrative of Racist Police vs. Innocent Black Victims: In cities around the country, so goes this tale, police officers are busy “huntingand killing” black men. On July 7, the logic of this rhetoric culminated in the shooting of a dozen Dallas police officers, of…

It’s Time Libertarians Started Caring About Religious Freedom

in Culture/Philosophy by

One of the most impeachable derelictions of the modern libertarian movement is its blatant disregard of – or support for – government attacks on religious liberty. The Gary Johnson complex, as I’ve come to call it, is not grounded in any libertarian ideology – a fact that fellow candidate Austin Petersen ripped the proverbial fig leaf from during the Libertarian Party’s presidential primary debates.  There’s nothing remotely libertarian about forcing a Christian pastor to wed a gay couple against his convictions, or in forcing business owners to provide products and services for a ceremony they fundamentally object to, regardless of…

Pokemon Go’s Popularity Shows Free Markets Are More Effective Than Government Bureaucracy

in Culture/Politics by

There’s no secret that childhood obesity has become a greater problem in society. There have been a number of contributing factors to this, such as television programming and the continued rise of video games. Whereas children once found enjoyment in sports and building forts, many now seek video games and programming as entertainment. The loss of activity has resulted in a lack of focus on fitness, leading children to lead unhealthy lifestyles. How do we respond to this? Back in 2010, the Task Force on Childhood Obesity was formed. On paper, it sounded like a noble crusade towards ending a serious…

Deion Sanders Declares All Lives Matter In Response To Recent Shootings And Growing Racial Tensions

in Culture/Politics by

Prior to the most recent string of shootings and violent acts, the country was already in a bad place. Events like the San Bernardino, California attack and the recent shooting at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida have left politics charged and people emotional. Once upon a time, the natural response to tragedies was to come together and help each other. In the world of polarizing politics, fast social media, and global mainstream media, it’s easier to resort to hate and division as opposed to unity. Some respond to acts like those in California or Florida by denouncing Muslims for…

Can The “Very Liberal” Celebrate Independence Day?

in Culture/Philosophy by

The week of Independence Day, Gersh Kuntzman of the Daily News, called for Major League baseball to permanently ban the playing of “God Bless America.” While conceding some of its virtues, Kuntzman laments that the classic jingle “embodies” some of “our worst things,” vices like “self-righteousness, forced piety,” and “earnest self-reverence.” Kuntzman approvingly alludes to a 2013 poll conducted by the author of a book on “God Bless America.” The poll found that 61% or so of those asked share Kuntzman’s judgment that the song should go the way of the dinosaur.  The real story here, though, is to be…

You Can Be In Favor Of Policing Reform Without Being Anti-police

in Culture/Politics by

The past week has been tough for those of us who support law enforcement, but are also in favor of policing reform. Early Tuesday morning, video emerged of an incident in Baton Rouge, Louisiana in which a black man named Alton Sterling was killed during an altercation with police. Sterling was armed, but many believe the shooting–which took place at point-blank range while the officers were attempting to arrest Sterling for selling CDs–was excessive force, considering the videos did not show that Sterling reaching for the weapon. Following the shooting in Baton Rouge, video went viral of the aftermath of…

Laws Are For The Proletariat, Not The Elite

in Culture/Politics by

FBI Director James Comey demonstrated that he can take the dance floor and do the Texas Two-Step better than anyone out there. His performance will be heralded for his intellectual ability to build a case that goes in one clear direction, and then swings suddenly and inexplicably the other way.   I am a writer of novels and screenplays. Some of my work will be judged better than others, but at the very least I have avoided the writing sin known as the deus ex machina. This is a device where the writer inserts a totally arbitrary plot development that…

In The Wake Of Orlando: What Gun Laws Actually Make Sense?

in Culture/Politics by

The recent shooting in the Orlando, Florida LGBT nightclub was tragic and heartbreaking, not just for the LGBT community, but for anyone in America who felt solidarity and actually gave a damn. But as usual, the afterglow of tragedy was swiftly upheaved and manipulated for political argumentation – never mind the fact that the blood hadn’t even cooled; the suits in Washington felt it necessary to stand on the graves as soapboxes and promulgate yet another anti-gun push. President Obama stated that same day during his press conference what a shame it was that the “type” of gun used in the…

If Only There Had Been “Gun Free Zone” Signs At Lexington

in Culture/Politics by

Today is that one day of the year where Americans come together over hot dogs and cheeseburgers to celebrate insurrection, secession and violent rebellion. While the meaning has long been forgotten to many, it still exists. The American Revolution resulted from tyranny that the founding generation attempted to remedy but eventually lost tolerance for as time grew on. Shots were fired at Lexington and the rest is history. But how could it have turned out had social justice warriors and the gun control lobby been the ones dominating the time? There might not even had been a revolution. Let’s cover a…

What It Means To Celebrate Independence Day

in Culture/Politics by

Independence Day is coming and once again, America is preparing for the height of summer. Bright skies with the sun shining bright, temperatures are rising and beach weather is in full swing. The Fourth of July is all of that alongside some early morning parades, afternoon barbeques and evening fireworks. It’s a beautiful time. But is this really what Independence Day is all about? Most seem to have forgotten what the holiday is all about, hence it now being widely called the Fourth of July. It’s strange that of all the days of the year, this is the one America…

Original “Ghostbusters” Director Says Critics Of All-female Reboot Are Not Sexist

in Culture/Politics by

Ghostbusters is an important film in 80’s film culture. The story of four proton pack-carrying men and their green ghost friend Slimer was a fun comedy that remains popular even today. Now like everything else in Hollywood, it’s getting remade. Naturally, such a beloved film getting rebooted is going to spark a backlash from the devoted fanbase. Though the interesting part about the Ghostbusters reboot is the fact it’s no longer about four proton pack carrying men. It’s actually about four proton-pack carrying women. Thus with this fact, it puts a spin on the backlash. Is the outrage because Hollywood…

52 Years After Civil Rights Act Is Signed, The Democratic Party Reminds You Martin Luther King Jr. Was a Terrorist

in Culture/Politics by

July 2nd was a big day in history fifty-two years ago. President Lyndon B. Johnson signed the Civil Rights Act into law. It was an enormous moment for the Civil Rights Movement, as it outlawed segregation in public places. For the signing, the White House made a theatrical event out of it, inviting numerous leaders and figures to witness the historic moment. Among them was Civil Rights leader Martin Luther King Jr., who led the Southern Christian Leadership Conference and was apart of the Big Six alongside current Congressman John Lewis. 52 years later, history remembers and America celebrates this…

The Inequality Of The Equality Movement

in Culture/Politics by

Equality – it is something that people fight for, something people desire, and I think most people would agree, something our society should strive for.  While the equality movement in America has represented various causes over the years, things like voting rights, racial issues, and feminism, it is now widely used to represent the LGBT movement.  The premise behind it is a noble one, and one that is very straightforward and simple – equal rights for everyone.  I think it is fair to say most people would agree that we all deserve to be treated equally on some level. This is…

Brexit Is Good – Here’s Why

in Culture/World by

On Thursday, British voters chose the uncertainty of independence over the certainty of bureaucratic morass, the vigor of self-reliance over the sluggishness of dependency, and risk of prosperity over the security of stagnation when they decided to leave the European Union. The Brexit victory offers Britain, Europe and the global economy a chance to redefine the global landscape, realistically assess whether governments and politics are working, and set the stage for a renewed economic dynamism. We find ourselves in a moment of global uncertainty and anxiety. Terrorism has made bloody inroads to the West, with attacks in Paris, Madrid, London and the United States leaving…

The Gun Debate

in Culture/Politics by

As could be expected, the gun debate reappeared in full force after the tragedy that took place in Orlando.  All of the typical arguments from both sides are again being repeated ad nauseum.  From “we need to prevent this from ever happening again” on the left, to “from my cold, dead hands” on the right, and everything in between. In the post-9/11 world, both major political parties are increasingly coming out in support of restrictions on gun ownership.  The idea that anyone who is on a government watchlist (such as the no-fly list) should not be able to own a…

Make Britain Great Again

in Culture/Politics/World by

I am pleasantly surprised that the “Leave” side won in the UK today. As a nationalist, I generally support other nations putting their independence above the interest of global governance and multinational corporate/banking elitism. In the short to medium term, the prospect of the UK leaving the EU will cripple the Pound Sterling and, likely, dip the country into recession. Nevertheless, if they had stayed in the EU, then they would have lost their country soon enough to the Islamization imposed upon them by Brussels. I am not just referring to the Syrian refugee crisis. Rather, I am referring to…

Marty, The Flag… It’s Disappearing! — Political Correctness Run a Muck In Pennsylvania

in Culture/Politics by

Democrats in Pennsylvania are trying to erase history and stifle free speech by stealing then banning a historic flag on display for Flag Day. Since late May, the Hanover Area Historical Society has been displaying The Clausen Historic Flag Collection in the Pennsylvania State Capitol to celebrate Flag Day. This exhibit features 50 handmade flags from different points in North American history. Historic flags in the exhibit cover a vast range of history. Flags can be seen from the beginning of North American settlement with the Viking Ravens Flag and Christopher Columbus Flag, to more modern flags such as the Territory of Alaska’s flag and…

America Doesn’t Have a Gun Problem

in Culture/Politics by

The reason the Founders enshrined the Second Amendment in the Constitution was because they understood that the inherent dignity and worth of the individual person expressed itself in the concepts of “Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.” An inherent part of Life and Liberty is security and the right of self-defense. We are endowed by our Creator with the desire for liberty and safety, and thus, have the right to hunt for sport and for food, and most importantly, to defend ourselves in the case of attack, threat to ourselves, our family and our property. The surest way of…

What We Need To Learn From The Tragic Orlando Shooting

in Culture/Politics by

The tragic shooting in Orlando has left a lot of people in complete outrage. There are always stories in the news about people being oppressed abroad. ISIS throwing homosexuals from rooftops to their death or burning captive women alive, Saudi Arabia executing homosexuals, or other Middle Eastern countries continuing to treat women as inequal. As tragic as this is, planet Earth still hasn’t caught up with the message of equality or reached an ability to tolerate differences. But now this extreme intolerance abroad has reached home. A mass shooting occurred against an LGBT gathering, simply because these people were homosexual…

The 5 Most Libertarian Songs From Hamilton: The Musical

in Culture by

The Tonys this weekend featured a rarity in modern award ceremonies, a massive celebration for a work of art that romanticizes both America and the men that founded it. Lin-Manuel Miranda’s smash-hit Hamilton racked up 11 awards, including best musical, leading actor (Leslie Odom Jr. as Aaron Burr), featured actress (Renée Elise Goldsberry as Angelica Schuyler Church) and featured actor for Daveed Diggs (as Marquis de Lafayette and Thomas Jefferson). As a nationalist-mercantilist who advocated for America replicating much of the government infrastructure of Great Britain, Hamilton himself was perhaps America’s least-libertarian founding father. That being said, liberty conservatives would…

Orlando Nightclub Victims Of Radical Islamic Hatred

in Culture/Politics by

It is tragic that once again, innocent victims succumb to the violent hatred of homegrown radical Islam. While we are still learning all the facts, it is clear that the gunman not only supported ISIS, but swore allegiance to the terrorist group, and acted as a radical Islamist, as he phoned 911 prior to carrying out his attack that resulted in the death of 50 people and an additional 53 people injured. Omar Mateen, a 29-year-old U.S.-born citizen, has been identified as the suspect in the worst mass shooting in American history that left scores dead and more than 50 others wounded…

The Intolerance Of The Left

in Culture/Politics by

D.W. Griffith the great American silent film director, depicts acts of intolerance throughout history in his epic movie by the same name.  The history of man is highlighted by such inhumane acts as the Persian conquest of Babylon over religious differences and the crucifixion of Jesus brought about by the Pharisees who violently disagreed with his views. 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…

Does The Latest X-Men Film Promote Violence Against Women?

in Culture/Politics by

Political correctness has become an enormous theme in American life, in and outside of political discourse. Anything that could be construed as negative regarding a person or group that just so happens to share a certain race, religion, affiliation, etc. could be seen as breeding hatred based on that type. X-Men: Apocalypse is the latest installment in the ongoing series about the Marvel Comics team of mutant superheroes. It is also the latest target of social justice warriors. The film features a villain by the name of En Sabah Nur, who has been reawakened from a long sleep to take down…

Pedophile Teachers Should Be Ostracized Not Glorified

Stop praising and making a demagogue of female teachers who prey on their students. They are pedophiles and should be socially ostracized, not glorified. Nothing makes me more sick to my stomach than reading yet another news story about a teacher having sexual relations with an underage student. Teachers who take advantage of their students are being exposed across the country in alarming numbers. It feels like we cannot go a few weeks without a new sensational story coming out. Like this week, 24 year old Alexandria Vera made headline news when it was exposed that she was impregnated by a 13…

Louisiana State Rep: The Declaration Of Independence Is Hypocritical

Louisiana State Representative Barbara Norton (Democrat-Shreveport) has joined the Social Justice Warrior field team after she publicly opposed a bill filed by fellow State Representative Valarie Hodges (Republican-Denham Springs) that would require students in grades four, five and six to recite portions of the Declaration of Independence each day in class. Norton argued that the Declaration of Independence should not be read because it was written during a time when African-Americans were not free. “For the Declaration of Independence only Caucasians (were) free, and for you to bring a bill to require that our children will recite the Declaration of Independence,…

Conservatives Under Siege – Why The 10th Amendment Is The Last Hope For Traditional Marriage

in Culture/Politics by

Late in the autumn of 1943, German fighter general Adolf Galland headed to the opulent estate of Luftwaffe Reichsmarschall and Hitler’s second-in-command, Hermann Göring. Galland, a decorated combat ace, had seen extensive action on the western front, and by this point in the war, he could see that the odds were turning against the Third Reich, as British and American bombers made regular raids deep into fortress Europe, escorted by new, long-range allied fighters that had started to thin his distinguished ranks. Galland’s mission on this night was to convince Göring that Germany must re-tool their air force for a…

The Politically Correct Perversion Of Superhero Movies

in Culture by

In 2002, Marvel published the first issue of The Ultimates, their alternative “Ultimate” universe run of the Avengers comics. Although this comic didn’t offer the first appearance of the new version of Nick Fury, it did offer the fully developed revision of the character. In it, he was changed from the traditional white, military-officer-esque character to a New York-tough black man. The new Nick Fury was intentionally modeled after Samuel L. Jackson, both in appearance and personality. Six years before the debut of the first Iron Man movie in which Jackson appeared in the post-credits scene, it was a foregone…

Dear Austin Petersen, Personhood Is The Ultimate Liberty Issue

Dear Austin, As a Libertarian Presidential Candidate, I know you’re busy with a lot of interviews and meetings with conservative media and voters looking for a way out of the coming Trump/Hillary nightmare, but I wanted to take the opportunity to reach out to you and try to iron out some of the wrinkles in your pro-life messaging. See, protecting life is an utterly non-negotiable issue for a slew of Libertarians as well as Republicans, and polls show that the nation as a whole is moving in an anti-abortion direction, with the highly-libertarian Millennial generation leading the way.

The Good Mix Of Feminism And Music

in Culture by

Despite my last article, I must profess to being neither an anti-feminist nor a feminist. I simply seek to inform meaningful cultural dialogue on issue. While I encourage both feminists and anti-feminists to continue forward, this piece specifically targets the undecided person, the one who has heard both good and bad things about feminism and seeks to understand the diversity within this broad school of thought. While people  often mischaracterize feminism as angry and man-hating, the explanations offered for why this stereotype exists only serve to further promote rather than abolish the misconception. Articles blaming men for the marketing and…

Feminism Is Becoming Both a Weak And Self-Defeating Movement

in Culture by

Feminism is a growing topic of public debate as campus activists continue to protest speakers from many different backgrounds. From radical lesbian feminist Julie Bindel to former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright to women’s rights activist Ayaan Hirsi Ali to feminist scholar Christina Hoff Sommers, the suppressing of differing opinions and stifling of free and open debate now affects more than just conservative and libertarian voices. While some credit this primarily to a culture of sensitivity and moral relativism, it is time to consider the possibility that this is an elite-driven structural problem within the feminist movement which drives scholars…

That Time John Stossel Schooled The College Democrats On My Campus

It was Spring 2015 in the heart of New York City. I had just transferred to my new school after having attended a small, out-of-the-way college that nobody has ever heard of, in a state that many don’t even know exist (WV). And now I was here – at one of the most prestigious schools in the world, right in the roaring bustle of Manhattan, and surrounded by high-profile speaking events, guest lecturers, and tenured professors who all had their fair share of fame and recognition. As such, the school administration tended to hype up and advertise these people and…

Far-Left Celebrates The Death Of Our “White Supremacist Nation”

Seeking to further promote balkanization and stoke racial tensions, many on the far-left have sought to categorize Donald Trump supporters (or anyone who promotes Nationalism) as racists who long for a return to 1950s America when segregation was legal and practically all of the political power was held by white American males. Unwilling to promote racial unity, the far-left has decided to begin planning a party to celebrate America’s ‘dying white majority” in a revolution that overthrows our “white supremacist nation”. In a video posted on The Guardian’s YouTube channel, Steven Thrasher claimed that Donald Trump’s candidacy represents a racist…

Americans Have Forgotten That Private Means Private

Is it just me, or have people lost sight of the concept that a private organization is just that– private? They can make their own rules as they see fit, that is until a progressive’s feeling get hurt and they make it their crusade to tackle the private organizations and all who associate. I hail from Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. My well respected Alma Mater, Bishop McDevitt High School, has been making national news recently. This Catholic private high school barred a student from entering their prom because of what she chose to wear to the event. The student was aware of the dress code…

Snowflakes: Stop Shutting Down Free Speech

A lack of diverse political discussion on college campuses does more harm than help to developing students. College is a place for exploring new ideas and opening your mind to concepts you’ve never heard of before; not cowering in fear and retreating at the sight of chalk writings found on your campus sidewalk. What has the environment on college campuses become if students are feeling threatened and unsafe because of someone writing a political candidates name in chalk on a sidewalk? A history of shutting down political discussion, particularly from the right, has been emerging across college campuses and can…

A Choice Between Good And Evil

in Culture/Politics by

Human beings, regardless of race, color or creed, are blessed with the innate ability to sense when danger is approaching, or when something is just plain wrong. Some people refer to it as a “gut-feeling,” “instinct,” or “sixth sense” when, in fact, it is so much more than that. One can look to other examples in nature to see that our so-called gut-feeling is not uncommon. How does a bird, which has never flown before, know to fly south for the winter? How does a salmon know to swim upstream to spawn? We are the product of all those who came before…

The work of Americans of good conscience – who also happen to be adherents of the Muslim faith – people like Asra Q. Nomani, Dr. Zuhdi Jasser, and M.J.

We all know why the barbaric savages entered the Paris offices of Charlie Hebdo and brutally murdered a dozen people in early 2015; why attackers murdered 130 in attacks that included Paris’ Bataclan theatre; why a married jihadi couple in San Bernadino gunned down 14 co-workers:…

Subscribe to Liberty Conservatives Magazine or follow Joel on Facebook or Twitter to be notified of subsequent articles. From the explosion of outrage and hyperbole that violated my social media newsfeeds in the last two days, I gather that gender-confused individuals are now trying to use bathrooms to which they are not assigned. That’s unfortunate. I expect it to complicate some social norms, and potentially produce awkward situations.  It may even force some businesses or public buildings to go back to the barbaric unisex individual bathrooms still used…

Academic Welfare Queens

Because in today’s progressive up-side down world, the communications professors are anti-free speech. So what exactly does a mass media professor who’s anti-journalism actually teach? As The Federalist reported, Click specializes in “audience studies, theories of gender and sexuality, and media literacy.” According…

The Story Of Ahmed’s Clock: A Politically Opportune Tale Of Racism In America

14 year-old Ahmed Mohamed arrived at his high school in Irving, Texas hoping for praise from his teacher after he created a digital clock out of a pencil-case. However, the strange-looking, beeping device with wires caused alarm among MacArthur High School administrators, who reacted by calling the police. Irving Police officers subsequently placed Mohamed under arrest for suspicion of creating a fake bomb. The arrest, and subsequent outrage among many on the left, prompted an invitation to the White House by President Obama and to Facebook by Mark Zuckerberg, an internship at Twitter, and thousands of messages of support on social media. The Daily Beast responded…

Chances are, especially if you are libertarian or have many libertarian friends, you have seen many people passionately defending both sides of the issue. You have heard arguments about abuse of government power and adherence to the constitution coming from both sides, and it may be difficult to determine what is the libertarian view on this.

Three Really Dumb Abortion Arguments You Should Stop Making

In yet another case of political correctness gone awry, the retailer Target has announced its intention to phase out gender labels from several kids sections after “outrage” from customers. According to Bloomberg, the apparent outrage boiled over when an Ohio mother posted a photo on Twitter in June showing a sign for “Girl’s Building Sets”, similar to the type sold by the company Goldieblox, directly adjacent to a sign for regular “building sets”. “It stood out to me as a good example of the way our culture tends to view boys and men as the default, normal option and girls and…

The Conservative Case For a Lower Drinking Age

in Culture/Politics by

Though it is rarely discussed in conservative or Republican circles, the federal drinking age (a product of the National Minimum Drinking Age Act of 1984) is one of many examples of the federal government’s overreach in the last several decades. As can be expected, given the courts consistent disregard for the constitution, the Supreme Court declared the law constitutional in a 1987 ruling. The act coerced states to raise their drinking ages to the federal minimum through the threat of withholding federal highway funds, among other punitive measures. As a result all 50 states have effectively bended to the will of…
