On Recessions and Moving Goalposts

Let’s be real: America’s economy is in the tank. You don’t have to be a rocket scientist (or economist) to figure that one out. Heck, you just have to set foot in a grocery store! But, dire as our situation is, it’s still not a recession… At least, not according to the “experts.” Never mind […]

Indoctrination Lessons from the Kremlin

Propaganda is everywhere. We’re subject to it under the guise of “public service announcements” to get vaccinated, wear our masks, and stay inside. We see it in movies, on TV, and all over our social media feeds. But the most effective propaganda is the kind that goes unnoticed. The Russian government understands this. It’s why […]

What’s a “Liberal World Order” Anyway?

This week, a White House official named Brian Deese appeared on CNN. As a top economic advisor to Joe Biden, Deese found himself—perhaps unexpectedly—in the hot seat over America’s astronomical cost of living. (I mean… how bad do things have to be for CNN to critically question a Democrat?!) “What do you say to those […]

What’s a Medal of Freedom Without… Freedom?

This week, Joe Biden handed out 17 Presidential Medal of Freedom awards to a variety of public figures, from social-justice-warrior-and-soccer player Megan Rapinoe to Senator John McCain. Not-so-shockingly, their accomplishments had little to do with… well… freedom. In fact, since its creation in 1963, this medal has only gone to handful of people who’ve done […]

Insult, Injury, and $40 Billion for Ukraine

In case you haven’t heard, America is sending $40 billion in foreign aid to none other than Ukraine. If you’re thinking, “wait, didn’t we just send them $13 billion earlier this year?” you would be correct… In case you haven’t noticed, our government kind of has a thing for spending money on other people’s wars. […]

Economic Pessimism Hits a 50-Year Low… Are We Surprised?

Every year since 1972, the Wall Street Journal and the University of Chicago have teamed up on a nationwide poll, attempting to find out how Americans feel about the economy. On Monday, their findings for 2022 were released… And unsurprisingly, they weren’t great. In fact, they were pretty terrible: 83% of Americans polled said that […]

The Sinister Plot Against Public Schools

If you’re a consumer of mainstream news, you’ve probably encountered reports of a sinister plot bubbling up among America’s scariest fringes… And it has the chance to change our country forever. Who are these people, you might ask? Despite what you’d think based on their media profile, they’re not terrorists, or a political party, or […]

Elon Musk Takes on the Thought Police

Over the past week, we internet users were given a rare treat in the form of media honesty. The subject? Just how stupid the mainstream media thinks we are. This came courtesy of Elon Musk, who made a $43 Billion offer to buy Twitter, taking the social media behemoth private. This offer, given Twitter’s struggles […]

The Messed Up World of “Covid Relief”

Us taxpayers fund a lot of crazy things, don’t we? From the $400,000 camel statue to the infamous $2 million bathroom… we’ve seen plenty of examples over the years of government waste and mismanagement. And recently, with pandemic relief money raining down from D.C., state and local governments have had an opportunity like never before to think up new projects. And […]

There’s Nothing More Tribalistic than War

As the Russia-Ukraine conflict continues to unfold, the rhetoric surrounding the war seems to get stronger by the day. Just when you think the politicians have exhausted their supply of condemnations, they come back with more for our consumption. The remarks are, in many cases, deserved. Putin’s actions are deeply immoral, and they ought to […]
