Economic Inequality and the Role of Government

While the ages are replete with promises from political figures to deliver economic prosperity and cosmic equality, not since perhaps the Franklin D. Roosevelt administration during the 1930s and 40s has there been such a hankering for the usurpation of power from the people by the U.S. federal government. Recently, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) unveiled her latest legislative proposal called “A Just Society,” a plan which “aims to combat one of the greatest threats to our country, our democracy, and our freedom: economic inequality.” With the provision of “a living wage, safe working conditions, and healthcare,” the federal government will “ensure that we are on a path towards shared prosperity for all.”

What the plan is truly promising is wide

Are Social Media Companies Disproportionately Censoring Conservatives?

Three weeks ago, President Trump hosted a summit at the White House during which a bevy of right-wing personalities, influencers and provocateurs descended upon the nation’s capital to condemn the alleged censorship of conservative viewpoints on social media by big tech companies. “A big subject today at the White House Social Media Summit,” tweeted the president, “will be the tremendous dishonesty, bias, discrimination and suppression practiced by certain companies.” While many on the right, including the president, are packing heavy accusations, nobody appears to be armed with sufficient evidence of guilt.

In August 2018, a Media Research Center/McLaughlin & Associates poll found that 65 percent of “self-identified conservatives” believed that companies like Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube were intentionally stifling their …

Activism Trumps Patriotism at the Women’s World Cup

The United States women’s national soccer team is doing a terrible job representing our country overseas.

Speaking to reporters last week, forward Megan Rapinoe—who previously knelt for the national anthem—seized an opportunity to express her displeasure with President Trump, noting, “I’m not going to the f****** White House,” as would be customary following a World Cup victory. Joining her teammate in protest is co-captain Alex Morgan, a former UC Berkley standout who has also preemptively declined a potential White House visit and refused to sing the national anthem.

This is a disgrace. And the only people hurt by this protest are the individuals engaging in it.

With a semifinal game today against England, Rapinoe and Morgan have managed to alienate …

There’s No Virtue in Damnation

Nobody enjoys playing God more than the secular left.

For as tolerant and inclusive as these folks purport to be, the secular humanist wing of the American political left is infinitely more spiteful than the God of the Old Testament whom they despise and vastly more intolerant than the religious folks who they deride as “bitter clingers,” in the words of former President Barack Obama. These are the nihilists, atheists, and moral subjectivists; all those who contend that human life is inherently meaningless, that there is no objective standard of morality, and that religion is merely a covert vehicle for the imposition of homophobic bigotry under the protection of the First Amendment’s Free Exercise Clause.

These folks are our moral …

The Disingenuous Left Prevails

On Monday, Kyle Kashuv announced that his admission to Harvard University had been revoked.

A survivor of the 2018 mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglass High School in Parkland, Florida, Kashuv has earned national media attention as an outspoken gun rights activist pitted against his leftist peers who seek to impose strict gun regulation and oust from the political arena those with whom they disagree on policy. This, you see, is the disingenuousness of the left, and Kyle Kashuv is the latest victim.

First we must understand that, for Kyle Kashuv, it was an asinine decision to express the putridly imbecilic sentiment which he prattled in the unfortunate company of a likewise immature flock of dopes in the years prior …
