On Sept. 30, Sen. Richard Blumenthal, a Connecticut Democrat, made a fool of himself during a committee hearing regarding Big Tech. “Will you commit to ending Finsta?” he asked Facebook Safety Chief Antigone Davis. Likely suppressing a laugh, Davis attempted to answer his question, but her efforts did not satisfy the senator. “I don’t think […]
Deny Biden the Eucharist
In the Middle Ages, the Catholic Church had a ceremony called “Bell, Book, and Candle.” It was a rite of excommunication reserved for powerful public figures who committed a particularly grave sin, such as murder. A bishop would publicly bring 12 priests together in a church. The bell would ring, the bishop would read from […]
The Troubling Trend of Executive Overreach
On his first day in office, newly-inaugurated President Joe Biden signed 17 executive orders. In his first week, he signed 37. In the same period of time Donald Trump signed four executive orders, Barack Obama signed five and George W. Bush signed zero. Perhaps Biden is attempting to maximize his output while he is still […]
Why the Left Even Bothered with a Second Impeachment
From the very start of the Biden administration, the proposal for unity made its way into the Democrats’ ultimate goal. They claim that all they want now is to unify with their fellow brothers and sisters under one administration that will set us all free of systemic racism, white male oppression, a horrible pandemic, and […]
To Impeach is Overreach: The Dem’s Ill-Advised Crusade
Our country has become politically cannibalistic. In the halls of power, there is polarization to such an extent the two parties barely vote in concert on anything. The rhetoric has gotten so heated, Democrats are hedging their bets they can take back the House with threats to impeach President Trump. Mind you, not for any […]
What Does it Really Mean to be Pro-Life?
Our political discourse is nonsensical. The Republican party is at war with itself, with Reganites clashing with Trumpian-populists for the soul of the GOP. In the Midwest, the Democratic platform feels like it was airdropped from Mars, with the laughably out of touch party losing Ohio, Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin in the 2016 presidential election […]
Loose Cannons Come in Orange
In one of the most shocking and dramatic turns of the Trump Administration, last week, in an extremely encouraging step toward bipartisanship, President Trump made a surprise deal with Democratic House and Senate Minority Leaders Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer to help raise the debt ceiling. Further, now it appears they are all working together […]
U of M Professor: We Have No Reason to Believe Bipartisanship is Good
The frequent prescription for the ills of the U.S. Congress is more bipartisanship, but we have no definitive reason to believe this, according to University of Michigan professor, Dr. Charles Shipan. Many Americans believe that the country’s political landscape is void of bipartisanship due to increasing polarization. It is thought that our congressmen only look […]
Freedom to Bear Arms and Use the Bathroom?
When placed side by side gun control and transgender bathroom rights challenge traditional left-right conceptions of freedom. The debates surrounding both gun rights and transgender restroom rights center on the level of control Americans are willing to cede to the U.S. government. Clearly, these issues are not comparable in terms of their implications: enacting stricter […]
Letter to the Editor: My Own Thoughts on the 2016 Presidential Election
I am a culturally conservative libertarian who believes in American global leadership. I am disillusioned by this election as are many across political beliefs and interests for so many reasons other than mine.
