    Ben Shapiro gives some insightful advice on how to debate a Leftist in this 21 minute video. For instance, he uses the term Leftist instead of Liberal. He also describes socialism in one concise statement.
  • Meet the Renegades of the Intellectual Dark Web

    ...But as the members of the Intellectual Dark Web become genuinely popular, they are also coming under more scrutiny. On April 21, Kanye West crystallized this problem when he tweeted seven words that set Twitter on fire: “I love the way Candace Owens thinks.” Candace Owens, the communications director for Turning Point USA, is a sharp, young, black conservative — a telegenic speaker with killer instincts who makes videos with titles like “How to Escape the Democrat Plantation” and “The Left Thinks Black People Are Stupid.” Mr. West’s praise for her was sandwiched inside a longer thread that referenced many...

    It's easy to dismiss Kanye West. It's easy to dismiss him because he's nutty. This is a fellow who tweets about antique fish tanks and fur pillows. This is the guy who calls himself Yeezus (after Jesus) and suggested that then-President George W. Bush didn't care about black people in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. He isn't exactly known for his bouts of emotional stability. And in our celebrity-driven culture, we shouldn't pay too much attention to those who haven't spent a lot of time studying policy. That's how we end up with celebrity politicians, emotion-driven policy and reality television...

    Young America's Foundation scored a legal victory against UC-Berkeley this week after a judge in San Francisco refused to dismiss the organization's lawsuit against the university for infringing on the First Amendment rights of conservative students and speakers on campus. “Young America’s Foundation looks forward to moving on to the merits of this case and vigorously defending our claims at trial. This ruling allowing YAF’s critical First Amendment case to move forward is a win for conservatives and free speech, and it shows that Judge Chesney believes there is significant evidence of Berkeley’s work to suppress conservative speech," Young America’s...

    Former Republican Sen. Phil Gramm of Texas was fond of telling a story about his time stumping for educational change. "My educational policies are based on the fact that I care more about my children than you do," Gramm once said to a woman. "No, you don't," she replied. "OK," said Gramm. "What are their names?" Gramm's fundamental premise is inalterably correct: Parents care more about their children than do the members of the bureaucracy. But parents are being gradually curbed in their authority by precisely those bureaucrats across the West. On Tuesday, a British court condemned a not-yet-2-year-old child...

    It happened again this week, another university professor was exposed as an unhinged liberal, filled with uncontrollable rage. In the aftermath of the death of former First Lady Barbara Bush, tributes flowed in from around the world, except not from Randa Jarrar, a Fresno State University English professor. Jarrar tweeted that Mrs. Bush was a “racist” and that she was glad the “the witch is dead.” In response to the outpouring of support for the Bush family, Jarrar tweeted, “F… outta here with your nice words.” She also expressed extreme hatred for the relatives of Barbara Bush, tweeting “Can’t wait...
  • Yes, Ben Shapiro is Still Wrong on Tariffs. Here’s Why

    American Greatness ^ | March 19, 2018 | Spencer P Morrison
    Shapiro claims that I favor “total state control of the economy” because I think it is possible to “simply pick the best industries and subsidize them.” Apparently, tariffs are Communism, and I am Stalin. . . Shapiro has it entirely backward: tariffs are the form of taxation most consistent with small government. . . tariffs are antithetical to big government because they preclude socialism. How? Tariffs make imports expensive. This encourages domestic production and discourages offshoring—thereby boosting demand for American labor. Basically, tariffs create stable jobs and increase wages for American workers... The key to solving this puzzle is recognizing...

    Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan is an anti-Semite. This isn't in question. It's a fact, and one the minister continues to underscore with each speech. Last week, he spoke before the 2018 Saviours' Day event in Chicago. He stated: "White folks are going down. And Satan is going down. And Farrakhan, by God's grace, has pulled the cover off the eyes of that Satanic Jew, and I'm here to say your time is up, your world is through." Just for good measure, he added, "Jews were responsible for all of this filth and degenerate behavior that Hollywood is putting...

    The abortion chain Planned Parenthood claims women are its primary clients. But last week, Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky wanted its supporters to know that it serves men, too, including transgender “men [who] have a uterus.” It repeated the line “Some men have a uterus” 11 times in the tweet. In another tweet, it also claimed men have ovaries, writing, “Whoo brovaries!” The Christian Post reports conservatives quickly mocked the abortion giant for the biologically inaccurate tweet. According to the report: This is “madness” tweeted Obianuju Ekeocha, founder and president of Culture of Life Africa and author or the...

    It’s not unusual for an uproar to erupt on college campuses when a conservative such as Ben Shapiro wants to make an appearance. But a bitter brouhaha over a Silicon Valley techie? That’s what’s happening at Portland State University after a student group invited former Google engineer James Damore to speak on campus about diversity. Damore had the spotlight shine on him after he got fired over a 10-page Google memo he wrote criticizing the company’s internal gender diversity policies and accusing the tech giant of “alienating conservatives.” {snip} Campus activists have called the students organizing Damore's event "misogynists," "white...

    The fracking billionaire brothers behind Shapiro’s Daily Wire website are looking to expand their conservative media holdings—that seems to include Glenn Beck’s crumbling empire. BETSY WOODRUFF LACHLAN MARKAY 02.12.18 3:35 PM ET The people who head Ben Shapiro’s conservative news site are in talks to buy Glenn Beck’s troubled media empire TheBlaze, The Daily Beast has learned. Two sources familiar with the conversations said this appears quite likely, though the deal isn’t final. Reached for comment, Shapiro—who heads The Daily Wire, which is eyeing TheBlaze—did not dispute this report.

    It looks like we may soon see a merger of two of the most well-known Trump-skeptic news sites.According to the The Daily Beast, the billionaires behind Ben Shapiro’s The Daily Wire are currently in talks to buy Glenn Beck’s conservative media empire TheBlaze. As the Beast noted in their piece, the Wilks family funds Shapiro’s site and are looking to “to expand their holdings in conservative media.” They previously looked at Breitbart, but a difficult relationship with Rebekah Mercer prevented that from occurring. Shapiro didn’t exactly deny that talks are underway regarding the potential purchase of TheBlaze. Per the Beast:...

    In the past few days, thousands of Iranians have marched against the terrorist regime in Tehran. As of this writing, twelve of these Iranians have been murdered by the country’s Revolutionary Guard. Trump has tweeted his support for the protesters, spoken out in their favor, and made clear that he’d love to see them topple the regime itself. Contrast Trump’s behavior with that of the Obama administration, which deliberately ignored anti-regime protests in 2009, choosing instead to cozy favor with the regime and maximize Tehran’s regional power. The administration even went so far as to give Tehran a legal pathway...

    Ben Shapiro claimed a victory over the holiday weekend in his feud with Rosie O’Donnell, after Twitter reversed itself and deleted a vulgar tweet the conservative commentator had reported. Shapiro filed the complaint after the ex-“View” host tweeted at him, "suck my d--- Ben." He said he reported her “mainly to see if Twitter does indeed have a double standard.” “Everyone knows if Rosie were conservative, Twitter would suspend her in a hot second. So, Twitter, put your money where your mouth is,” Shapiro wrote, adding the “#MeToo” hashtag. At first, it seemed like Twitter balked. The social media giant...

    There is no forgiveness from some on the left. It doesn’t matter how many decades or tens of thousands of articles a publication contributes to liberal causes and the overall progressive agenda. If they have a single moment of clarity and fairness, they’re evil and no longer deserve support from the leftist elites. That’s the scenario surrounding Hollywood snowflake Debra Messing. The Will and Grace star, who is known for being to the left of most leftists in Hollywood, took great offense to the posting of a single article: The frailty of liberalism isn’t universal, despite claims by many right-wing...

    Ben Shapiro is one of a number of conservative journalists recently bent on assuring us we're at liberty to disregard due process of law in formulating our verdict on Roy Moore. We have his permission, he tells us, because we're deciding on political issues whose disposition won't result in sending anyone to jail. But this misunderstands what due process is and strips us of much needed protections. Protections? you may ask. Wherefore do we need protections if the state is not involved in our decision to, say, condemn someone we feel has been proven to our satisfaction to be a...

    Was a 14-year-old girl molested by Alabama Senate Republican candidate Roy Moore, or is she lying? It’s a yes-or-no question. Was a 16-year-old girl sexually assaulted by Moore, or is she lying? Again, it’s a yes-or-no question. Finally, do you believe that there are conditions under which a child molester should sit in the United States Senate? Again, this question is binary. Yet many conservatives seem to be seeking a third answer to all three of these questions, mostly to avoid giving straight answers. Let’s begin with the first question: Did Roy Moore molest a 14-year-old girl? Did he meet...

    When taking aim, try not to hit your foot. You may need that foot, if only to put it in your mouth. Our bizarre age of ideological bickering continues as if we’ve not been sated yet. At least, the editors of The New York Times think its readers still demand a full barrage of invective and “argument” against “the right.” The Gray Lady has graced its pages with the writings of one Jane Coaston, who in mid-October took on conservatives in yet another farrago: “The Hollow Bravery of Ben Shapiro.” Ms. Coaston accuses Shapiro — the brilliant intellectual pugilist widely...
