It was in 2007 when I first heard conversations about Confederate monuments being expressions of racism and about the need for a new movement that would uplift and draw awareness to black identity in America. I heard conversations in classrooms and at community centers in my neighborhood about the need for a movement that would unify blacks in America and tear down the walls around what they were calling “white institutionalism”. At the time, I thought it was only talk. Less than ten years later, I'm beginning to see those words and ideas that were circulating on the streets of Chicago turned into actions. Activists across America are accomplishing a lot of what was being talked about as far back as 2007. It was almost like Chicago's community organizers and academics had seen the future. Or maybe it was more like they had been planning it. In hindsight, it makes more sense to believe the latter.

In light of the Harvey Weinstein scandal, we're reminded of how disgusting and hypocritical Hollywood culture has always been. Weinstein was able to get away with harassing and sexually abusing women for decades because no one had the balls to expose him. As far back as 2004, it's reported that the New York Times killed a story about Weinstein's sexual abuse with the help of people like Matt Damon and Russell Crowe. The amount of time it took to expose Weinstein makes other allegations about “open secrets” in Hollywood more believable. While Weinstein was reportedly exposing himself to women, celebrities like Matt Damon were trying to keep his behaviour from being exposed. Journalist Sharon Waxman claims that both Matt Damon and Russell Crowe called her in 2004 to encourage her not to publish a story that would have exposed Weinstein's history of sexual harassment and abuse.

We've seen the flying fists and shouting matches across America and Canada. We've seen the hordes of black-clad thugs throwing bricks, shouting people off stages and shutting down public events. We've seen them organize and coordinate in ways that most savages can't. Just like the barbarians who sacked Rome, they're driven by their shared hatred of other people's wealth and success. This is reflected and proven not only by their Marxist symbols and black flags, but by the fact that their services are available at such low costs. These thugs and savages who throw bricks and shout down peaceful people aren't wealthy or successful—they're poor, jealous and starved for money and ways to vent their anger. This is what makes the business of supplying crowds so successful.

In 2014, my home state of Illinois elected a Republican governor for the first time in 12 years. Since the time of our last Republican governor, George Ryan, the state has been marred by lavish spending, corruption and scandals—all on behalf of state Democrats. It all started with the corruption and arrest of Rod Blagojevich, who tried to sell an Illinois senate seat for money, and is now ending with bankruptcy and a potential social collapse. The 2017 version of Illinois is the result of 12 years of Democrat rule. Blagojevich was sentenced to 14 years in prison on charges of fraud, bribery, conspiracy and extortion. Among his many charges was the attempted sale of Barack Obama's old Senate seat. The case gained national notoriety in 2008, but Illinois's problems were just beginning. State Democrats, who control almost every branch of Illinois's government except the governor's office, have tried to block every productive and cost-cutting measure introduced by Bruce Rauner since his inauguration on January 12, 2015.

There is an established elite in
American politics – in both parties – that believe in deficit
spending, unlimited debt and big government. They believe that
government is a force for good and that it can keep the order and
maintain the American dream. Some even believe that the American
dream of democracy and prosperity should be spread to every corner of
the Earth. The Clinton legacy, the Bush legacy and the Obama legacy
all depend upon using the resources of government to achieve
grandiose goals. The problem is that their ambitions threaten to
bankrupt America. Now that they've realized this glaring truth,
they've moved towards finding ways to pay America's monstrous $20
trillion debt while still increasing their ability to spend even

Donald Trump's number one qualification is that he is not a politician. He reminds us everyday and it's true. People may not like what he has to say or how he says it, but America needs Donald Trump. He and Ted Cruz have a similar plan to simplify the tax code, secure the border and make America an economic engine of the world. The two can unite the Tea Party movement and Trump alone can appeal to Democrat voters to beat Hillary Clinton. Recent polls have shown Trump appealing to voters of all stripes. Trump also has a tough foreign policy that establishment Republicans could learn to appreciate.

Just this year, two mass shootings grabbed headlines. Their similarities were unquestionable, but their outcomes where entirely different. A white male with blond hair and blue eyes shot nine blacks at a church. Months later, a middle-eastern American opened fire on a military center and killed five marines. Both incidents created hysterical mainstream headlines with vastly different content. The problem is that both of these shootings were triggered by ideological fanaticism, but the ideological fanaticism of one culprit was ignored while the other became the center point of a movement to ban a flag and fuel a divisive racial narrative.

Unlike most politicians and bureaucrats in either the Democratic Party or Republican Party, Rand Paul has achieved an uncommon victory. When Ted Cruz read Doctor Zeus on the Senate floor, he accomplished little but a few brownie points among Tea Party patriots. In the battle against domestic spying and the Patriot Act, Rand Paul achieved an effective victory by substantially forcing the Bush Era law into expiration. No other Senator or member of Congress in recent history has managed to strong-arm such a legislative victory.

During the Enlightenment Movement, liberalism was what defined freedom from oppression and helped break the hold of monarchy. Since then, liberalism in America has shifted to an ideology of control and oppression. Free thought and personal liberty are no longer what define liberalism. Liberalism has done a u-turn in America and become a platform for moving backwards toward the same policies that were successfully escaped in the 18th century. The worst part of this is that Americans from all walks of life are embracing such intrusive and outrageous policies.

Americans get wary about ousting one of their party's incumbents during a primary. The fear arises from the uncertainty of a new candidate's ability to beat the opposing party's contender during an election. In the state of Kentucky, however, this fear and uncertainty shouldn't be a factor in Republican voter's decisions to replace their incumbent.

Obamacare has turned out to be an unmitigated disaster. America's unemployment rate hasn't moved in over a year. Democrats in both the White House and Congress tried to sell a war with Syria, but failed miserably at convincing Americans and instead ended up abdicating the decision-making process to Russian president, Vladimir Putin. The Benghazi scandal rocked the White House and was arrogantly downplayed by Hillary Clinton and regarded by Democrats as a phony scandal.

Ted Cruz has worked his way up the Republican chain, almost from nowhere. He has made a lot of enemies along the way, there is no doubt about that. No Republican in recent history has managed to cause such controversy and ruffle so many feathers. This could be the type of Republican that the GOP needs to shake off a decade worth of decline and division.
September 1st, 2013 | T. Carter
Hillary Clinton will most definitely be the Democratic candidate in 2016. While the Democrats try to make their divisions over Obamacare seem like Republican propaganda, the GOP will be trying to heal its own divisions. So far, the divisions run very deep and some conservatives feel that a consistently strong candidate will finally unite the party against a growing leftist monstrosity that pedals racism, prejudice, and filth to meet its political ends.

Obama's presidency has been a failure. When compared to that of Bush, who many had declared America's worst president, it is disastrous. To Bush's credit, he had many accomplishments despite their controversial impacts. Obama cannot say the same.

Even Fox News has acknowledged that Republicans have begun to embrace gay marriage. In a recent poll, Fox found that support for gay marriage has climbed 32% since 2003, across the nation. Support among Republicans has climbed by nearly 20% since 2008.

The word narrative is used a lot by pundits, journalists, and personalities to explain how media organizations create storylines and patterns to build and reinforce perceptions about certain subjects and people. One of the common narratives is that gun advocates and proponents of the 2nd Amendment are insane. The only major American televised news network that doesn't feed this narrative is Fox News (they feed their own narratives).

If you have been paying attention to the American mainstream news media, you might be under the impression that the Republicans have waged wars against women, minorities, and democracy. Sandra Fluke became an icon for female reproductive rights last spring, just before Republicans were about to select Barack Obama's nemesis.

America is a nation divided and the Republicans are in no better shape than they were directly following the Bush era. It's difficult to imagine how a two-party nation could muster enough enthusiasm and energy to stir a revolution within its highest ranks.

By now you must have noticed the support that Barack Obama has gained from elite, latte-sipping assholes in Hollywood and mainstream media. Smiling pretty boys like George Clooney and Tom Hanks have gone so far out of their way to promote and endorse the worst president in U.S. history that they might as well be employed by the Democratic Party.

Opinion polls are showing stronger enthusiasm amongst Republicans than Democrats, and Democratic enthusiasm is down sharply from 2008. The reasons for this may have something to do with Obama's failed message of hope and change. In 2008, Obama won the election against a dull and lackluster Republican named John McCain. 7% more Democrats showed up to vote than Republicans that year.

The Democrats believe in the national ownership of individuals. Not much within the party's platform has changed. Today, it doesn't matter what race or color you are, as long as you belong to the community. And by “belong”, they don't mean by your own voluntary membership, they mean under the orders and control of the community.

ObamaCare forces all Americans, rich or poor, to purchase health coverage from private insurance companies. When Obama and Democrats set out to draft a universal healthcare plan, they decided against a public option. The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that ObamaCare and its tax penalty for those not covered is constitutional, amidst sturdy opposition from Republicans.

The U.S. mainstream media's incongruous infatuation with Barack Obama seems to be intensifying just as it did in 2008 when candidate Obama mesmerized the American hive mind with pre-written poetry and wit served fresh from a teleprompter.

When Barack Obama was elected to office in 2008, there was talk of a post-racial America. It seemed as though racism was on an exit route out the back pipe of American society. As the years passed, it became more obvious that this was all just a fantasy.

Tom Hanks, who recently narrated Obama's error plagued re-election propaganda film, The Road We've Travelled, was forced to apologize following a video that surfaced in which he was caught joking and laughing on stage with a white man dressed as a black man.

One of the topics that will surely fail to gain the attention of the mainstream media during this election season is Barack Obama's shady and controversial connections to individuals who have a history of anti-semetic views.

The American people have gotten used to the idea of having either Mitt Romney or Rick Santorum square off against Barack Obama in November, but what if something unusual happened at the Republican National Convention in Tampa Bay?

Although most of his Republican counterparts have acted like Democrats in their attacks against his successful history as a businessman, Mitt Romney is the most electable amongst all of them. In a recent USA Today/Gallup poll from the most competitive swing...

2011 was partially defined, politically, by the Occupy Wall Street Movement. Barack Obama was one of the country's most financed political candidates in 2008. His fundraising machine of 2008 broke records. Historically, Obama also received more financial contributions from Wall Street than any other presidential candidate. Today, with the OWS Movement simmering down, the issue of Wall Street financing is a permanent one.

2003 was the year that the United States “liberated” Iraq. Let us assume, just for the sake of discussion, that the WMD theory was more of a plot or a deliberate lie than a genuine mistake. If so, what for? What purpose or reason would be so detrimental as to drive the Americans to invade the country? Only one answer would enter the minds of geo-political strategists, intellectuals, and globalists.
