Not Always Like This

One of the unavoidable tragedies of youth is the temptation to think that what is seen today has always been. Nowhere is this more noticeable than in our responses to the recent Parkland, Florida, massacre. Part of the responses to those murders are calls to raise the age to purchase a gun and to have more thorough background checks — in a word, to make gun purchases more difficult. That’s a vision that sees easy gun availability as the problem; thus, the solution is to reduce that availability.

Gun/Weapon Education Versus Misunderstanding

The Patriot’s Editorial:

I recently read a Facebook post that was asking why do we need semi-automatic and automatic weapons. Well, the first thing we need is some education on the difference between those two types of weapons. Individuals that own and love guns as I do, know and understand the difference. There are three types of weapons and I will explain each one and show how they actually operate and why some are legal to own and others are not. Read More »

Distasteful Behavior: What’s in a Word or Words?

The Patriot’s Editorial:

In this ‘It’s All About Me’ world we live in, people believe they have the right to say whatever comes to mind. That includes: saying/writing anything to hurt, impugn or punish someone they disagree with. After listening to it in ‘ad nauseam’ for the paste couple of years, I thought I would try to make some sense of it. Read More »

Challenges of Draining the………………What?

The Patriot’s Editorial:

What does ‘Draining The Swamp’ actually entail? That seems to be the million dollar question simply because new revelations about the depth and magnitude of problems in Washington seem to grow exponentially by the hour. Trying to make sense of this, and figure out what swamp draining involves, has proven to be a convoluted mess and thus, difficult to sort out. Like the ecosystem, many things are going on at once and all have to be addressed and corrected before all negative ‘cause and effect’ issues are eliminated. So, you can not just fix one thing without fixing something else. The obstacles to ‘Draining the Swamp’ are (but not limited to): Read More »

Our Country Is Under Siege

The Patriot’s Editorial:

Today, marks one of the lowest points in this country’s history. I’m witnessing our Republic be replaced with ‘Absolutism’, our Congress reduced to a mere ravel and our Constitution systematically shredded. To many, a government shutdown doesn’t mean much. Life will go on as usual and they will experience little (if any) ill-affect by it. Much as was the case during the obama years. But for others and for various reasons, they will be impacted deeply. Why does it have to be this way and what good can be gained by it for us as individuals, a people and nation? Read More »

Is ‘Drain The Swamp’ Working?

The Patriot’s Editorial:

Much has been said and written about ‘Making America Great Again’ and ‘Draining The Swamp’! Like many of you, I assumed President Trump’s initiative would be limited to eliminating over-reach regulations, passing new laws and changing mindsets. Little did anyone realize the impact those efforts would have peripherally after just one year. The unforeseen consequences we are beginning to witness are both disturbing and surprising a lot of people. Read More »

Brazile and the Dems Know They Must Rid Themselves of the Clintons

CALLER: I’ve got the question here. Do you think the Democrats are going to run Joe Biden, that’s what this stuff with Donna Brazile’s all about with the book and —
RUSH: No, I actually don’t. In fact, let’s go to sound bites number 1 and 2. I touched on this yesterday. Biden I think may want to, but I don’t think that’s who the Democrats are gonna choose. I tell you what. I touched on this yesterday, because this Brazile book, there’s too much of it now. As I said yesterday, I stumbled into this observation a couple of days ago. There’s just too much of this.

A Rogues Gallery of Right-Hegelians – Foundation for Economic Education – Working for a free and prosperous world

Read

major project of mine for the last three years has been to trace the origin and development of the ideas that led to today’s alt-right activists. They have emerged on the political scene suddenly and with impressive ferocity. Some people just assume that they represent nothing but a melange of hate and racism.

This is too simple. Even the most dumbed-down political movement is built by slaves of defunct philosophers. But which ones? And does the worldview cohere to the point that we can anticipate the patterns and policies of this group?

The Best Speech by President Trump So Far

Donald Trump gave the best speech of his Presidency to the United Nation. He was bold and American — giving real clarity to what he meant by an “America First” speech. He did not mince words and called out rogue nations. But he also noted that he had no intention of imposing the American system on other nations. His speech was a speech on what he sees as realism and getting away from an idealized American foreign policy. His was a speech that will resonate beyond his base.

Because Sean Spicer Is a Far More Decent Person Than Them | The Resurgent

Hollywood and a lot of reporters are outraged — OUTRAGED I TELL YOU — that Stephen Colbert would dare “normalize” or “rehabilitate” Sean Spicer. “Why?” they are asking. Some Hollywood stars who support the ability to rip up children and suck their brains out had the audacity to call Spicer evil.

So why do it?

Stop Being a Butthole Wife

Stop being a butthole wife.  No, I’m serious.  End it.

Let’s start with the laundry angst.  I get it, the guy can’t find the hamper.  It’s maddening.  It’s insanity.  Why, why, must he leave piles of clothes scattered, the same way that the toddler does, right?  I mean, grow up and help out around here, man.  There is no laundry fairy.

What if that pile of laundry is a gift in disguise from a God you can’t (yet) see?  Don’t roll your eyes, hear me out on this one.

I was a butthole wife.  Until my husband died.

The day my husband left earth for heaven, all of my marriage problems vanished.  There was no one to fuss at, negotiate with, or play possum at bedtime (you know, when you pretend you’re asleep to bypass sex).

How Anti-White Rhetoric Is Fueling White Nationalism

How Anti-White Rhetoric Is Fueling White Nationalism

I opened Twitter recently and saw 20+ notifications. Most of the time that means the new generation of white nationalist Twitter trolls are filling my feed with racist and anti-Semitic cartoons. It was the trolls, but this was different. They were celebrating my use of the word “anti-white” in a tweet. They saw it as a victory that a “mainstream conservative” was using this term that for so long has been their calling card.     read

The Raping of America: Mile Markers on the Road to Fascism

The Raping of America: Mile Markers on the Road to Fascism

“Freedom is never voluntarily given by the oppressor; it must be demanded by the oppressed.”—Martin Luther King Jr.

There’s an ill will blowing across the country. The economy is tanking. The people are directionless, and politics providesno answer. And like former regimes, the militarized police have stepped up to provide a façade of law and order manifested by an overt violence against the citizenry.

Despite the revelations of the past several years, nothing has changed to push back against the American police state. Our freedoms—especially the Fourth Amendment—continue to be choked out by a prevailing view among government bureaucrats that they have the right to search, seize, strip, scan, spy on, probe, pat down, taser, and arrest any individual at any time and for the slightest provocation.

Jim DeMint: Why I Met With Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg

Jim DeMint: Why I Met With Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg

This election season has made many Americans even more cynical about our democratic system of government. There is clearly political upheaval underway in America and around the world. This massive disturbance of the status quo has been fueled in large part by more people getting better, faster information from many sources on the internet.  Previously, news on political debates was controlled by a few powerful newspapers or broadcast television. The New York Times, which used to set the daily agenda for national media coverage, had the motto “all the news that’s fit to print.”  But who decided what was “fit” for the public to know?  read

Why Voting for the Lesser of Two Evils Is a Waste of Your Vote

Why Voting for the Lesser of Two Evils Is a Waste of Your Vote

Although my personal political philosophy is libertarian, like most people, over the years I have surrendered to the binary choice our two-party system gives us when casting my vote in presidential elections. I almost always find myself settling for a “lesser of two evils,” but the “evil” is not so great as to prevent me from rationalizing what amounts to, by my vote, an endorsement or affirmation of the candidate.  Because at least rhetorically, the Republican party candidate promises a greater commitment to limited, constitutional government, entitlement reform, tackling the national debt, and a belief in the benefits of free trade, I have voted for the Republican candidate for president ever since Ronald Reagan. The Republicans repeatedly disappoint on matters of foreign policy, seeing the US as world policeman. But the Democrats fare little better on foreign policy—sometimes even worse. So foreign policy as a vote-determining factor between the two major parties tended to be a wash for me. I often profoundly disagree with the Republicans on many of the “culture war” and so-called social issues, but I have had confidence that our Constitution and judiciary will defend against any overreach by Republicans in that area.  read
