This Monday, President Trump announced that he would be nominating DC Court of Appeals Judge Brett Kavanaugh to fill Supreme Court Justice Kennedy’s newly vacant seat. The American Left has decided to continue their nonsensical opposition to any decision the President makes, which put any Trump nomination in the media crosshairs. This inevitability led many … Continue reading Why Conservatives Are Upset Over Trump’s Supreme Court Pick
If you’ve kept up at all with social media or the mainstream news today, it’s easy to think that a horrible tragedy befell the U.S. in just a short day. Left-wing pundits and online personalities have taken to hurling all of their favorite inflammatory monikers at President Trump and conservatives, indicating that some big shifts … Continue reading Too Much Winning: Justice Kennedy Retires, Democrats Suffer Major Losses in Primary
Time Magazine decided to put out a cover depicting, to them at least, the epitomization of President Trump’s Zero Tolerance immigration policy. On it, a picture of a crying toddler is cropped out of its original context, and is instead looking up at a looming (if not playful) Trump, with the text, “Welcome to America” … Continue reading How the Time Magazine Immigration Cover is a Perfect Example of Fake News
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tS9FfL8kNxQ If you’ve been keeping up with the news at all, I wouldn’t blame you if the only story you’re aware of is the debate surrounding immigration. While there’s a lot to be said on that issue, quite frankly, much like the controversy surrounding guns as of late, there isn’t really a debate going on … Continue reading Why It’s Worth Watching Trey Gowdy’s Opening Statements at the IG Hearing
Ever since the drama in Charlottesville occurred, we’ve seen a harsh media shift from concerns of Russian hacking and data leaking, to coverage of a full blown culture war where nobody is safe, even the dead. As President Trump brought up in one of his many press conferences lately, every single person is being examined … Continue reading Why Don’t Democrats Support Freedom of Speech?
Today, CNN changed a headline covering Antifa from saying that “Antifa was fighting for peace with violence”, to “Unmasking the Leftist Antifa Movement”. It might not seem like much, but this sly title change is enough to totally recontextualize an entire movement. Time after time, the media has positioned hate groups like Black Lives Matter … Continue reading Why is the Media Defending Antifa?
After mulling over the strange events that have happened these past couple weeks, I realized something rather unfortunate. Despite every big face in alternative media, despite key figures in conservative politics, despite the warning signs coming from Europe, despite half of the country shouting it in their faces last November, the Democratic party still doesn’t … Continue reading Democrats Need to Realign, Or Else They Will Lose Every Election In 2018 and On
We live in such a politically charged era that not having a political party and ideology that you align with is basically social suicide, especially on a college campus. In America, thanks to our two party system, most people fall into a limited number of camps, typically based off their age, race, religion, and gender. … Continue reading Why I’m Not a Libertarian
Today in Chicago, several Jewish members of the LGBTQAI+ community were told that they weren’t allowed to fly their Star of David flags at the “Dyke March”. The “Dyke March” is a variant of the typical Chicago Pride Parade, claiming to place a larger emphasis on social justice and being more inclusive. Ironically this is their reasoning for banning the Star of David from their event, as in their mind it is a hateful symbol. When questioned how the symbol of the Jewish people and the nation of Israel was hateful, the organizers of the “Dyke March” claimed that they were “anti-Zionist” and “Pro-Palestine”.
When musicians, actors, directors, and writers all echo the same constant violent rhetoric, it makes you stop and wonder why they made these statements to begin with. Sure, Madonna could have just been venting when she said she wants to blow up the White House, but what if just one of her fans didn’t think she was joking? What if that one person also loved the Avengers, and watched its director, Joss Whedon, gather all of his favorite superhero actors in one video that called the current president a crook, a villain, and a liar? What if that one person also follows Rachel Maddow on Twitter, and sees her day after day accuse the president of hacking the election with Russia?
