    triving for perfection is something we all do. This applies not only to our personal goals, our work, our hobbies, but also to the wider world we inhabit. The idea of a perfect society, one in which every conceivable problem has been solved, has a sort of natural allure, and it’s no wonder that, again and again, well-meaning dreamers have attempted to perfect something that is fundamentally flawed: the human condition. It is widely recognized that perfection is beyond unattainable in practice, but it’s still a worthy goal, right? You would think so, but on reflection, I’m not so sure....

    President Donald Trump took aim at socialism and left-wing ideology during his speech at the United Nations – specifically in the context of Venezuela, a socialist state currently experiencing the worst humanitarian crisis in its history. “The socialist Maduro regime has brought a once thriving nation to the brink of total collapse,” Trump said. “This dictatorship has inflicted terrible pain and suffering on the good people of that country. This corrupt regime destroyed a prosperous nation, by imposing a failed ideology that has produced poverty and misery everywhere it has been tried. ” “The problem in Venezuela is not that...

    One day in 2012, Charles Craig and David Mullins entered Jack Phillips’ Masterpiece Cakeshop in Lakewood, Colorado, to order a wedding cake. Phillips, a Christian and self-described “cake artist” who custom-designs cakes for various occasions, politely declined, citing his religious beliefs.Having previously, in the words of his lawyer, refused to bake cakes for Halloween, or with anti-American, anti-family, or what he considered profane messages, Phillips also would not design a cake to celebrate an event in violation of his understanding of Leviticus XX, 13.Craig and Mullins promptly filed a complaint alleging discrimination on the basis of their sexual orientation...

    The seeds of the modern bureaucratic or administrative state go back to the Progressive Era of American history in the early 20th century. But progressive regulation morphed into the hyper-control of our present federal government during the New Deal. Modern students, whose history education has been directed by teachers who “accept” the reality of a federal leviathan, are often unaware of the fact that before 1916 there was no income tax in the United States, and that federal revenues were primarily through import duties. The income tax was justified by the need to support the ever-expanding regulatory environment being promoted...
  • Modern Conservatism is an Utter Failure

    The Daily Caller ^ | 9/12/2017 | John Conlin
    It is time to admit it; modern conservatism is almost a complete and utter failure. Today’s conservative movement seems to employ a lot of folks in pretty cushy jobs, prints some magazines, hosts some websites, publishes various books, and puts on conferences until the cows come home – for those who don’t know, conferences and seminars can be big time money makers. Sadly, its primary purpose seems to have become a self-propagating jobs program for those lucky, skilled, or connected enough to rise to the top.

    Virgin Islands Governor Kenneth Mapp has already called up the National Guard ahead of Hurricane Irma, who appears to be an even nastier customer than Hurricane Harvey that has left so much devastation in its wake. Calling up the Guard is a good idea, something that is definitely prudent when you know you have a powerful storm heading your way. What wasn’t prudent, however, was Gov. Mapp ordering the confiscation of private citizens’ guns. The NRA has already voiced its opposition to the plan and is threatening legal action. The National Rifle Association (NRA) is threatening legal action to stop...

    It’s been over a year since Colin Kaepernick started his national anthem protest, but he’s now unemployed and there are plenty of NFL quarterbacks still standing. Nearly every notable player in the NFL has been asked about their stance on Kaepernick’s protest and Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott is one of the latest to make his position clear. “I mean, it’s bigger than I think some of us think,” Prescott told Yahoo Sports on Sunday. “It’s just important for me to go out there, hand over my heart, represent our country and just be thankful and not take anything I’ve...

    he City of East Lansing has been named a defendant in a federal lawsuit alleging the city crafted a new policy to bar a local orchard owner from operating as a vendor at the city’s farmer’s market. The lawsuit claims the city created said policy “solely because the City dislikes the farmer’s profession of his religious beliefs about marriage on Facebook.” Alliance Defending Freedom, a Christian non-profit organization with the goal of advocating for religious freedom, filed the 40-page lawsuit on behalf of Stephen Tennes, owner of The Country Mill. Tennes posted to Facebook multiple times that the orchard would...

    Its days like today when I think America is hanging by a thread. And that thread is the courageous and good man Donald Trump. I knew the media would deliberately lie about Charlottesville, but I didn't think the liberal republicans would too. Clearly I overestimated them. These cowardly republicans still have never learned. Their fate is tied to trump. They go against him and they can forget getting the vote of people like me ever again. (Sigh) maybe in America 2.0 we will insist on a media that isn’t a bunch of leftists lying filth. Until then, stock up for...

    Gun ads have changed with the times. Political correctness is certainly not the name of the game in these classic pieces of gun marketing. It was just plain old fashion advertising back in the day. Hammer the hammer? Lawyers wouldn’t come within a football field of this one. Of course, hammering on a vintage revolver probably is a bad idea anyway…Oh no, that guy is teaching his son how to hunt, you say? Where are their iphones, video games and couch? Well, buddy, this is how a father is supposed to raise his son to be a man, not a...
  • Dept. of Justice and the D.C. Swamp

    Which is why, if freedom is to survive in America, the U.S. Department of Justice must be drained. As an enabler of the D.C. Swamp, the U.S. Department of Justice must be drained first, if freedom is to survive in America. According to a Department of Justice (DoJ) website, a “somewhat enigmatic Latin motto” appears on the official seal of the department: Qui Pro Domina Justitia Sequitur. Its history, like the history of the seal itself, is unclear. One literal translation of the Latin is: “For the lady who pursues justice.” The DoJ website suggests it means “the Attorney-General prosecutes...

    National Review ^ | August 8, 2017 | David French
    When I talk about free speech, I often ask the audience two questions. First, did you know that the Supreme Court has been steadily expanding free-speech rights? Second, do you feel freer to speak now than you did five years ago? The answers are always the same — some variation of “no” and “heck, no.” The first assertion is undoubtedly true. Federal courts have consistently protected free speech from government interference and have been relentless in shutting down viewpoint discrimination. When government officials target speech because of a speaker’s views, they lose time and again. At the same time, millions...

    I wonder how young people would feel if they were forced to suffer such deprivation of food and freedom in a war or in a tyrannical government like communism, theocracy, or fascism? Would they still be so willing to be multicultural globalists? I was seated recently at a table of educated Romanians, late twenties and early thirties, lawyers, businessmen, teachers, engineers, doctors, and lobbyists for various globalist non-profits in D.C. We were celebrating the success of Romanian-Americans, a diaspora composed of individuals who belonged to my generation that escaped communism and others who were recent arrivals and successful entrepreneurs, people...

    Surely, if Islam is making any one statement, its most glaringly evident message is "NO TRESPASSING ALLOWED ON ISLAM!" As some are speculating, I will also guess that Officer Mohamed Noor, after hearing what might have sounded like a shot, may have believed Justine Damon had a gun in her hand as she leaned toward the squad car in her pajamas. If that was the case, his allegedly firing the shots that killed the unarmed Australian woman was simply the worst of judgments in the presence of panic. In saying all that, I’m straining - times 10 - to give...

    Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III first leaped onto the national stage when he became the first US Senator to endorse Donald Trump for president. Back then, Trump did not even have the Republican nomination wrapped up and was still considered a long shot by most. Jeff Sessions took a huge risk that eventually catapulted him to one of the most powerful positions in the nation. Unfortunately, his short time as Attorney General has been a disaster to say the least. Sessions quickly revealed to the public that his true character is somewhere between a 1930’s dictator and a movie villain. His...
