There’s a popular pie chart that’s been going around social media for some time now. It furthers the belief that arguing about politics is always and everywhere a futile endeavor… Continue reading
Facebook is now blocking purely-informational links from a neutral pregnancy website that detail subjects such as early fetal development and present a balanced view on topics such as abortion pill reversal, according to a tip from a concerned reader that LifeSiteNews has independently verified.

There are snowflake stories…and then there are snowflake stories.
Often times most are in the same level absurdity and intensity. A white person wore a sombrero; cops were drinking coffee at a Starbucks, or name any so-called cultural appropriation violations based on the rules of these morons, it’s all there. And no, they don’t get to throw that term back at us when we complain about those who trash law enforcement, the American flag, or any number of cultural events and traditions that normal people celebrate or cherish. No one cares about a white person being a Mexican for Halloween. Continue reading
In a recent column, Nationalism vs. Secession: Should America Break Up? (July 27), I included references to an essay I had published at THE UNZ REVIEW (July 26), and then which was picked up nationally by a number of other Web magazines, including LewRockwell (July 29) and The Abbeville Institute (August 2).
For that essay “Nationalism vs. Secession,” I added a new introduction in which I briefly discussed a recent “National Conservatism Conference” held in Washington DC on July 14-15, and I mentioned that evidence exists that its organizers (e.g., Yoram Hazony, David Brog, etc.) had as their purpose to attempt to “corral” and in some way assert control over the increasingly restless American nationalist and populist elements (and they are not necessarily the same). In a sense those “dissident” elements had been awakened and given new life by the election of Donald Trump who was not by definition an Establishment Conservative, that is, not a card carrying member of what some writers call “Conservatism Inc.” Continue reading
What is the governing dynamic causing both student loans and healthcare burdens to run away from us?

SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) — Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren offered a public apology Monday to Native Americans over her past claim to tribal heritage, directly tackling an area that’s proved to be a big political liability. (Warren apologizes for heritage claim, woos Native Americans)
Americans are currently in the midst of a virtual “book burning” akin to the ones we look back on in shame.
* Catholics torched the writings of Protestant reformer Martin Luther.
* The Nazis lit a towering bonfire of books by Jewish and leftist writers such as Franz Kafka, Sigmund Freud and Upton Sinclair.
* And many 1950s Americans, spurred by Senator Joseph McCarthy, hunted for pro-communism books to burn.
Today’s censorship tactics are largely aimed at conservative ideas, theses, reference books, historical accounts and philosophy in general. While I have always found most of my best pieces of conservative wisdom in physical hard-covered books, most of us are going online these days, where conservative principles, in their original form and as originally presented by their authors, are becoming increasingly harder to find, due to the Big Tech search engines giving preference to Marxist thought and scrubbing conservative thought from their sites.

Disposing of the Electoral College
Several “blue” states are conspiring to circumvent the Electoral College by means of the “National Popular Vote Interstate Compact” initiative. These states will award all their Electoral votes to the candidate who wins the majority of the so-called “popular vote”. Continue reading
Obama let you in and, he definitely knew what you were all about. In fact, he was counting on it…
There are 30,000 gun related deaths per year by firearms, and this number is not disputed. U.S. populations on 329,313,529 as of Tuesday, Aug 6, 2019. Do the math: 0.00911% of the population dies from gun related actions each year.
Statistically speaking, this is insignificant! What is never told, however, is a breakdown of those 30,000 deaths, to put them in perspective as compared to other causes of death… Continue reading
I’m sitting in a small coffee shop near Nokomis trying to think of what to write about. I scroll through my newsfeed on my phone looking at the latest headlines of Democratic candidates calling for policies to “fix” the so-called injustices of capitalism.
I put my phone down and continue to look around. I see people talking freely, working on their MacBook’s, ordering food they get in an instant, seeing cars go by outside, and it dawned on me.
We live in the most privileged time in the most prosperous nation and we’ve become completely blind to it. Vehicles, food, technology, freedom to associate with whom we choose. These things are so ingrained in our American way of life we don’t give them a second thought. We are so well off here in the United States that our poverty line begins 31 times above the global average. Thirty. One. Times. Continue reading
