Joe Biden’s 2nd Amendment Plans are In – Americans Should be VERY Concerned

by the DC Patriot With all the excitement in the political world lately, what is normally one of the biggest concerns for Republicans has been pushed to the side – the 2nd Amendment. The Biden Campaign’s updated website contains a comprehensive list of new gun policies that the radical left has surely had a hand in drafting. To name a few, the Biden-Harris Administration intends to implement some of the most intrusive 2nd Amendment laws ever proposed in the United States. Directly from JoeBiden.com Hold gun manufacturers accountable. In 2005, then-Senator Biden voted against the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act, but gun manufacturers successfully lobbied Congress to secure its passage. This law protects these manufacturers from being held c...

Can Pro-life Christians Vote for a Pro-choice Candidate?

by Kerry Baldwin Can pro-life Christians vote in good faith for a pro-choice candidate? Richard Mouw of Fuller Theological Seminary, along with other prominent evangelicals seem to think so since, in their view, socialist policies are (allegedly) pro-human. They raise similar concerns I raised in How the Pro-life Movement is Aborting a Pro-life Era. I’ve argued the conservative movement has lost its way. They’re divided through infighting, over-spiritualizing the issue, and fail to understand the economic aspect, among other things. In my view, libertarianism is more advantageous in ending the practice of abortion. But some conservatives believe it’s a Christian’s duty to only vote for candidates whose stated belief is that abortion is mu...
Trump’s Executive Order on Race and Sex Lessens the Political Madness Thrown at Men

Trump’s Executive Order on Race and Sex Lessens the Political Madness Thrown at Men

by Wendy McElroy On September 22, President Trump signed the Executive Order on Combating Race and Sex Stereotyping. The order speaks of “race or sex stereotyping,” which is defined as the act of “ascribing character traits, values, moral and ethical codes, privileges, status, or beliefs to a race or sex, or to an individual because of his or her race or sex.” Federal agencies or entities that receive federal funds are prohibited from stereotyping in their training or educational procedures. If an organization wants federal money, for example, its material cannot claim that individual males are racist, sexist, or oppressive simply because they are male, white, or heterosexual. Doing so is racial and sexual stereotyping. The order has teeth in two ways. Presumably, the executive can ...

Why the Economy Isn’t Controlled by One Big Corporation

by Ryan McMaken More than a century of failure, mass murder, and ruined economies has not been sufficient to dissuade socialists form the idea that socialism—by which I mean Soviet-style socialism, not social democracy—can bring astounding prosperity once the planners work out the kinks. Sure, the Soviet Union failed, North Korea is a basket case, and socialist countries routinely drive down local standards of living in pursuit of utopia. But success will be achieved just as soon as socialists can find the right way to combine new technologies like “big data” with the right public administration techniques. Then, at last, a functional and efficient socialist state will be at hand. One of the latest schemes for finding the right “techniques and technologies” that will allow u...

Freedom Is Strength, Obedience Is Weakness, and Indifference Is Cowardice

by Gary D. Barnett Poor, wretched, and stupid peoples, nations determined on your own misfortune and blind to your own good! You let yourselves be deprived before your own eyes of the best part of your revenues; your fields are plundered, your homes robbed, your family heirlooms taken away. You live in such a way that you cannot claim a single thing as your own; and it would seem that you consider yourselves lucky to be loaned your property, your families, and your very lives.” ~ Etienne de La Boetie, – “The Politics of Obedience: The Discourse of Voluntary Servitude” – Written 1552-1553 What has befallen humanity? Why are we facing an end to freedom, beauty, and happiness? Why are so many fooled over and over again? Why has stupidity replaced sanity and logic? Why are the masses...

Pratt & Whitney Chooses Lower-Cost North Carolina — NOT LIBERAL HIGH TAXES Connecticut — to Build a $650 Million Manufacturing Plant

by the DC Patriot You mean big corporations want to create jobs and grow where there are less taxes? Say it isn’t so America? Of course it’s so, and only liberals are dumb enough to think that these big companies are going to keep taking it up the pie hole from liberal states taxing them to death. Pratt & Whitney will build a 1-million square foot manufacturing plant in low-cost North Carolina, investing about $650 million and creating 800 jobs through 2027, the jet engine manufacturer and state officials have announced. Pratt & Whitney did not approach Connecticut as a possible site for expansion, said a spokesman for the Department of Economic and Community Development. Commissioner David Lehman said Raytheon Technologies has advised the state the project will not ...

Something Wicked This Way Comes

by John W. Whitehead Every day I ask myself the same question: How can this be happening in America? How can people like these be in charge of our country? If I didn’t see it with my own eyes, I’d think I was having a hallucination. — Philip Roth, novelist Things are falling apart. How much longer we can sustain the fiction that we live in a constitutional republic, I cannot say, but anarchy is being loosed upon the nation. We are witnessing the unraveling of the American dream one injustice at a time. Day after day, the government’s crimes against the citizenry grow more egregious, more treacherous and more tragic. And day after day, the American people wake up a little more to the grim realization that they have become captives in a prison of their own making. No longe...

It concerns the Americans and the Ukrainians,” the Russian president said when asked about Hunter’s business dealings in Ukraine during an interview with Rossiya-1.Putin revea...

On Individualism (Answering Doug Wilson, Part 1)

by Dr. Norman Horn I am very pleased to post this week a series of articles authored by our good friends Joseph Knowles, Terry Gant, and Jeff Wright in response to theologian Doug Wilson’s recent article against libertarianism. While I had intended to write something myself, these three gentlemen have gone above and beyond the call of duty and written a tremendous detailed rebuttal. It’s so large, in fact, that I felt it needed to be posted over multiple days to be absorbed more completely. So, here is Part 1… Laying some groundwork Many discussions benefit from a bit of preliminary groundwork, and we find that this topic is no exception to that general rule. Failure to define terms often leads to a good deal of talking past one another rather than getting down to the r...
