Facebook Won’t Like Its News Feed

Posted: May 11, 2016 at 5:36 am   /   Politics

Facebook’s political bias has finally been dragged to the forefront of the censorship discussion. While the Senate Commerce Committee’s investigation into Facebook’s news curation echoes the steroid investigations of a few years ago – and the subsequent “Why are we paying for this?” in the distance from taxpayers – the investigation is a noteworthy one.

Millennials and the 2016 Election

Posted: April 19, 2016 at 7:21 am   /   Features, Politics, Top Stories

Millennials. This term is rivaled only by “Boomers” in clickbait words used on the Internet. I assure you, though, this article is worth it. The 2016 election – since no one is talking about it, clearly – is pivotal for a variety of reasons. For instance, the Supreme Court’s balance will be determined by the […]

Forget Republican or Democrat – What Matters is Effective Government

Posted: April 4, 2016 at 5:19 pm   /   Arizona, Elections, Features, Politics, Top Stories

Another election season is upon us and once again Americans are being inundated with a deluge of messaging, often in carefully scripted, poll tested statements that have become the norm in politics today, and although this current cycle has seen the rise of a candidate in Donald Trump with a much more freewheeling gregariousness, the […]

The Meaning of Conservatism

Posted: February 9, 2016 at 12:27 pm   /   Politics

At Saturday’s Republican debate, several candidates were asked to define “conservatism.” Marco Rubio gave a politically-astute answer. He said conservatism embodies three principles: (1) limited government under the framework of the Constitution, (2) free-market economics and (3) peace through strength. Donald Trump gave an answer in keeping with the root word “conserve,” he conserve that […]

America’s Ruling Class vs. All

Posted: January 24, 2016 at 3:26 pm   /   Elections, Features, Top Stories

Sitting back and observing the current civil war happening within the Republican party should come as no surprise to anyone who resides outside the beltway of Washington, D.C. Pundits, thinkers, writers, and radio hosts who I once admired, have now lost credibility as they have bestowed upon themselves the bastion of what is and isn’t […]

Republicans Accused of Cynical Scheme that Led to Odious Education Law

Posted: January 11, 2016 at 8:40 am   /   Politics

Proponents of the “Every Student Succeed Act” (ESSA) — a bi-partisan, progressive, 1061-page “No Child Left Behind” reauthorization education bill passed by Republican majorities in both houses and signed by President Obama on December 10, 2015 – have argued that the bill is worthy of conservative support, claiming it stops Common Core, reins in Obama’s […]

Here’s the thing about Donald Trump, he is NOT conservative…Do conservatives even care about that?

Posted: December 16, 2015 at 3:00 pm   /   Entertainment, Politics

Conservatives tend to be very sensitive to rooting out RINOs, and yet the current GOP front-runner is so far off that reservation he almost doesn’t deserve even that designation. John Hinderacker at Powerline says it best: Apart from the fact that I don’t think he would make much of a chief executive, a Trump presidency […]

Is Santa liberal or conservative? This list settles it…

Posted: December 1, 2015 at 3:00 pm   /   Entertainment, Politics

In 2012 a poll found a plurality of people thought Santa would be a Democrat. Let’s go down the ways this poll was right, and the (more) ways it was wrong. You can link to this and tell people that one “study” showed Santa is almost twice as conservative as he is liberal. Originally posted […]

‘Tryphorgetin’ Back to Haunt Hillary After 8-Year Hiatus

Posted: November 21, 2015 at 6:07 am   /   Politics

Eight years ago this month, I was in fairly-regular contact with Bruce Chapman, the part-time producer of short and funny politically-incorrect videos. One of his spots touted the fictitious pharmaceutical product, “Tryphorgetin,” as it poked fun at Hillary Clinton in the fall of 2007 before seeming to disappear from the web after the 2008 elections.
