    “He’s a fascist!” For decades, this has been a favorite smear of the left, aimed at those on the right. Every Republican president—for that matter, virtually every Republican—since the 1970’s has been called a fascist; now, more than ever. This label is based on the idea that fascism is a phenomenon of the political right. The left says it is, and some self-styled white supremacists and neo-Nazis embrace the label. But are they correct? To answer this question, we have to ask what fascism really means: What is its underlying ideology? Where does it even come from? These are not...
  • For the love of God, why can't Democrats leave the Little Sisters of the Poor alone?

    The Little Sisters of the Poor are heading back to court to defend themselves against the Obama administration’s Health and Human Services mandate to provide contraception, yet again. In an unusual political move, Pennsylvania and California sued the Little Sisters, demanding the same group who won at the Supreme Court in Zubik v. Burwell provide contraceptives in their state. In early October, HHS issued a new rule that protects religious non-profits like the Little Sisters of the Poor from providing anything like contraception that would violate their religious beliefs. In a press release, Mark Rienzi, senior counsel at Becket and lead attorney...

    A company in Duluth, Minnesota, has fired about 50 employees who refused to get flu shots, according to KBJR 6. KBJR 6 on Tuesday reported that Essentia Health had set a Monday deadline for staff to get the injections. Essentia told employees, students, vendors and volunteers in September that they had three options in relation to the vaccinations. The health care provider said that the individuals affected could get the shot, secure an approved medical or religious exemption, or leave the company. Dr. Rajesh Prabhu, who is Essentia’s chief of patient quality and safety, on Tuesday said that the organization’s...

    A startling and honestly distressing view is beginning to receive serious consideration in both academic and popular discussions of climate change ethics. According to this view, having a child is a major contributor to climate change. The logical takeaway here is that everyone on Earth ought to consider having fewer children. Although culturally controversial, the scientific half of this position is fairly well-established. Several years ago, scientists showed that having a child, especially for the world’s wealthy, is one of the worst things you can do for the environment. That data was recycled this past summer in a paper showing...
  • Durbin Introduces Legislation To Make The VA Smoke-Free

    WASHINGTON — U.S. Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL), joined by Senators Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), Ed Markey (D-MA), Jack Reed (D-RI), Sherrod Brown (D-OH), Ron Wyden (D-OR), and Patty Murray (D-WA), announced legislation to prohibit smoking at the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). The legislation would repeal an antiquated 1992 law that requires the Veterans Health Administration (VHA) to furnish and maintain designated indoor or outdoor smoking areas. Supported by the Department of Veterans Affairs, the bill would bring the VA in line with smoke-free policies across the federal government and in the private health care system.  “Simply put, this bill will help save lives. According to the Department of Veterans Affairs, only...
  • ANTIFA's November 4 Protests Threats Fizzle In Humiliating Failure

    Even with all the Geroge Soros and Hillary Clinton funding and the full-page ad backed by the New York Times and all the internet networking, the bark of the ANTIFA commies seems to have been bigger than its bite. On November 4, many of us assumed that there would be rioting and mayhem spread by these little Communists who, interestingly enough, are protesting the Trump administration as fascists while they are demonstrating a closer alignment to fascism than the Trump administration. However, that all died out as the "protests" turned out to be little more than a yawn, even in...

    The so-called November 4 protests, which took place in cities across the country today, hosted by a nascent protest group called Refuse Fascism, will likely be remembered more for what they did not look like, than what they did. Far-right conspiracies had morphed the event into a fantasy world of unrealistic expectations.

    An organization called Refuse Fascism has more far-left protests planned all over the country to commemorate the election of Donald Trump and the electoral upset on November 4. This could spin out of control quickly. "Regime change," as they call it, is the goal, yet they claim they are not trying to overthrow the government or disenfranchise millions of voters who voted for Donald Trump. The idea is to take to the streets until Trump and Pence resign. Seriously. Refuse Fascism claims their protests will be nonviolent. But domestic terror groups Antifa and Black Bloc, may have other plans. Ivan...

    If a person is to be judged by his enemies, George Soros can feel proud. Autocrats across Eastern Europe, including his native Hungary, as well as those from China to Egypt and many in between, have expressed fear and loathing — and taken action against — the civil society organizations that Mr. Soros has generously supported for three decades. Dictators do not like Mr. Soros at all, so it is good news that he has now contributed $18 billion of his fortune to his Open Society Foundations. Mr. Soros was moved many years ago by the 1945 book by Karl...

    In the new normal of 2017, in which far-right and far-left militants clash openly in America’s public square, a contentious 20th century debate is newly relevant: is the extreme left as dangerous and repugnant as the extreme right? Should the hammer and sickle be as offensive as the swastika? Was Communism as evil as Nazism — a question sure to generate plenty of heat as we approach the 100th anniversary of the Russian revolution? Conservatives have long complained of a double standard for Nazi and Communist crimes. To manyon theleft, on the other hand, equating Communism and Nazism is an...

    John Haller is in Facebook prison. Clearly, he must be saying the right things. Help spread the word and get his message out. We may be experiencing to advent of two classic novels in our lifetime. Were Orwell and Rand modern day prophets? Consider this: In the novel Nineteen Eighty-Four, by George Orwell, the Thought Police (Thinkpol) are the secret police of the superstate Oceania, who discover and punish "thoughtcrimes" which are defined as personal and political thoughts unapproved by "the Party." Thinkpol used criminal psychology and omnipresent surveillance to monitor and arrest all citizens of "Oceania" who would commit...

    Not long after the end of World War II, author and economist Friedrich A. Hayek wrote in “The Road to Serfdom” that fascism and communism were really two sides of the same coin.For this, he was sharply criticized and even mocked. We just teamed up with the communists to beat the fascists, the argument went. True, Stalin (grudgingly) fought alongside the Allies to defeat Hitler. But Hayek warned that this was an anomaly; both ideologies exalted top-down state control and were ultimately antithetical to individual freedom.It’s time to revisit Hayek’s warnings.Arguments about fascism are all the rage at the moment....

    BBC ^ | September 7, 2017 | By Roger Harrabin, BBC environment analyst
    Ministers should tighten the UK's official climate change target - or face the courts, the government's former chief scientist has said. Prof Sir David King is supporting a legal case forcing ministers to shrink carbon emissions to zero by 2050. He says the current government goal - an 80% emissions cut by the same date - is too weak to protect the climate. Ministers have promised more ambitious climate policies in their forthcoming and long-delayed Clean Growth plan. But Prof King told BBC News the government knew the 80% target cut behind that plan was too weak. Some 18 months...

    Our friend, O.E. MacDougal, came to visit us at Backwoods Home Magazine and to fish the rivers and the coast of southwestern Oregon. It was going to be a long, relaxing Fourth of July weekend for him. Mac, as we call him, is Dave Duffy’s poker-playing friend from Southern California, and Dave, of course, is the publisher of this magazine. Whether or not communism, socialism, and fascism have any success depends on how they deal with capitalism. I was at my desk thinking about some things while half listening to them as they sat at the editorial table in the...

    Adding to the confusion is the fact that the Left has been outrageously successful in falsely claiming that Fascism/Nazism are right-wing ideologies, thereby saddling the Right with the Left's crap. Q. What do you call a blind German? A. A Not-see. Anonymous old “joke.” When being bashed on the head with a “Love Trumps Hate” placard it is hard to miss the irony involved. The Kafkaesque image of Antifa cry-bullies beating up peaceful free speech advocates and calling them Nazis is a twisted ideological scenario that even George Orwell would have had trouble doing justice to.
