  • How Woodrow Wilson Persecuted Hutterites Who Refused to Support His War

    Woodrow Wilson had no qualms about jailing people he disagreed with. His persecution of the Hutterites can attest to that. Campaigning for President of the United States in September 1912, “progressive” icon Woodrow Wilson said something that would gladden the heart of any libertarian: Liberty has never come from the government. Liberty has always come from the subjects of the government. The history of liberty is a history of resistance. The history of liberty is a history of the limitation of governmental power, not the increase of it. That was two months before the election that Wilson won. He garnered...
  • How Woodrow Wilson’s Propaganda Machine Changed American Journalism

    The media are still feeling the impact of an executive order signed in 1917 that created ‘the nation’s first ministry of information’.. When the United States declared war on Germany 100 years ago, the impact on the news business was swift and dramatic. In its crusade to “make the world safe for democracy,” the Wilson administration took immediate steps at home to curtail one of the pillars of democracy – press freedom – by implementing a plan to control, manipulate and censor all news coverage, on a scale never seen in U.S. history. Following the lead of the Germans and...

    A Tarrant County grand jury Monday declined to indict a volunteer security officer for a White Settlement church who fatally shot a man who killed two parishioners during a Sunday service. Jack Wilson fired one shot at Keith Thomas Kinnunen, stopping the 43-year-old gunman seconds after he pulled out a shotgun and shot Anton “Tony” Wallace, 64, and Richard White, 67, the morning of Dec. 29 at West Freeway Church of Christ. There were more than 250 people in the church at the time, officials said. Tim Rodgers, a prosecutor in the Tarrant County district attorney’s office, said in a...

    St. Louis County Prosecutor Wesley Bell said on Thursday that he will not charge the former Ferguson police officer who shot and killed 18-year-old Michael Brown in 2014. Bell said that the significance of the case and requests from Michael Brown’s family prompted his office to quietly re-open an investigation about five months ago, but the office did not have enough evidence to disprove a self-defense claim in trial. “This is one of the most difficult things I’ve had to do as an elected official,” Bell said beginning a news conference Thursday.

    Left-wing demonstrators and rioters have managed to achieve in a matter of weeks what courteous conservative thinkers failed to accomplish in a century: Knock Woodrow Wilson off his progressive pedestal. More than any other figure in American history, President Wilson embodied and popularized the 20th Century ideology known as Progressivism. Wilson’s eight years in the presidency created the template for the modern administrative state: a powerful executive branch, an oversized bureaucracy, the increased centralization of government, an unending demand for so-called legislative reforms, and multiplying federal agencies regulating more aspects of life. In a sense, the Wilson program of 1913...

    After years of debate, Princeton University announced on Saturday that it would remove President Woodrow Wilson’s name from the university’s revered school of public policy. The school, known as the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs since taking the former President’s name since 1948, will now be called The Princeton School of Public and International Affairs. The decision, as well as a decision to remove Wilson’s name from one of the university’s residence halls, was made Princeton’s Board of Trustees at a meeting on Friday. “We have taken this extraordinary step because we believe that Wilson’s racist thinking...

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez needs to ask herself what party she’s a member of and who those ‘slaveholder’ statues really represent. And SPARE US the BS magical history that Democrats use to pretend their party wasn’t filled with racist monsters who founded the KKK. Those slaveholders would have been in AOC’s party … think she understands that? That’s a rhetorical question, FYI. People really need to ask themselves why their communities chose to erect statues to slaveholders instead of abolitionists.— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) June 11, 2020 Tone-deaf is the phrase of the day, folks.

    Wilson might as well have been hatched in a Federalist Society lab; his lengthy political record reveals a deep commitment to Republicans’ political goals. Alliance for Justice, a progressive group that has opposed most of Trump’s judicial nominees, compiled a record of Wilson’s many controversial positions. Examples of his partisanship are not difficult to find. Wilson called Barack Obama “King Barack,” “petty and small,” “a fit-throwing teenager,” the “Anointed One,” a “radical leftist,” and “shrill, dishonest, and intellectually bankrupt.” He charged Obama with running the “most paranoid and politicized White House since Nixon.” He has also called Hillary Clinton “Crooked...

    Forget that embarrassing CNN segment with Don Lemon, “Republican political strategist” Rick Wilson and contributor Wajahat Ali laughing like hyenas over Wilson’s insulting “Boomer Rube” comment against Trump supporters. MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough decided it was a good idea to tout an attack ad against Sen. Martha McSally (R-AZ) made by the Wilson-led anti-Trump group The Lincoln Project just three days later. The Lincoln Project is a PAC created by anti-Trump Republican George Conway and advised by fellow anti-Trumpers Rick Wilson, John Weaver and Steve Schmidt.

    Why are Americans so Angry? Face it. The U.S. government no longer belongs to the people and it no longer represents them. This causes a rage, an anger because Americans feel helpless. You see, there is absolutely nothing they can do about anything. Nothing. Americans are absolutely powerless, and the ballot box is simply a facade. One reason the American public is so passive relates to the fact many people live in a state of willful denial. To admit your country runs more like the Corleone family than some famed tome of Greek political-philosophy is a difficult step to take....

    Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-Fla) is demanding that persons who mock members of Congress be prosecuted. "The Constitution says that members of Congress shall not be questioned in any other place," Wilson asserted. "Yet, even the shallowest dive into the Internet bumps into numerous criticisms, insults and threats. Not a day goes by when someone isn't calling for voters to oust me from office. This has got to stop." "We're going to shut them down and work with whoever it is to shut them down and they should be prosecuted," the Congresswoman promised. "Freedom of speech does not protect 'hate speech.'...

    Rep. Frederica Wilson (D., Fla.) said that facilities used to detain illegal immigrant children separated from their parents are run entirely by "white men." Wilson's comments came in response to a question from CNN host Alisyn Camerota about the condition adolescent girls in these centers, during a Wednesday appearance on New Day. "Every day they're bringing in new children from the border, so there's no real plan to exit these children out of this facility, but there's a real plan to bring them there because they said to us, ‘We're going to add permanent structures.' Now they're in tents, and...

The documents, which emerged in 2002, were...

    Claremont Review of Books, the brainiest and best publication in the conservative world, published my review of a new biography of America's first progressive president, Woodrow Wilson. He was an unreconstructed defender of slavery and a rancorous apologist for the Confederacy. His whole academic and political life was devoted to tearing up the Constitution and replacing it with a progressive dictatorship. This resentment against a Union that had crushed his native south in the Civil War drove his obsession with a world government with power to issue orders to the United States of America. The constitution in Wilson’s reading had...

    A Red Lion woman faces criminal charges after state police said she exposed her breasts to a trooper during a Thursday afternoon arrest. State police in York said they were called to the 400 block of South Charles Street in Red Lion Borough about 4:30 p.m. Thursday, when they found 25-year-old Brianna L. Wilson. According to police, a warrant had previously been issued for Wilson’s arrest. A trooper attempted to take her into custody, when Wilson flashed him, police said. “The accused became irate and exposed her bare breasts to the trooper in a taunting/inappropriate manner,” police said.
