Tucker Carlson’s Solution for Adolescent’s Smartphone Vice is Lunacy and Contradictory

I’ve almost finished reading Tucker Carlson’s new book, Ship of Fools. In said publication, the author rightly denounces Republicans, Democrats, conservatives, liberals, the punditry class and special interest groups for supporting certain policies that have had and continue to have deleterious effects on the US population. A good amount of the book is a breath of fresh air for those of us who continue to remind others that blind loyalty to party and indiscriminate acceptance of mainstream narratives, instead of faithful adherence to first principles, is what has led to America’s precipitous moral, social and political decline.

Nevertheless, a good portion of Carlson’s book reveals how flawed the talk show host’s views are with respect to free market economics, certain conservative ethics and his proposed solutions for America’s ills. Continue reading

The Dangers of Seeking Validation in the Wrong Places

It’s been a few days since Kanye West shocked the Cultural Marxist establishment by both declaring that he finds commentator Candace Owens’ declarations to be interesting and posting a picture where he is shown wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat. Being that miss Owens is of the political persuasion that is almost entirely scorned by American celebrity culture, those that belong to it have vociferously denounced West with the intention of shaming him into retracting his statements.

The Curious Case of High-Profile Conservatives Against Boycotts

The public boycotts have been mounting, justifiably and encouragingly so, against organizations that insist on supporting immoral thought and behavior either directly or indirectly.

First it was Target, after they announced that their bathrooms and fitting rooms would be open to “transgender” persons. Then it was Shakespeare in the Park, depicting what a Trump assassination would look like if interpreted along the lines of Julius Caesar. It has culminated with the NFL and its insistence that players be allowed to disrespect our national anthem and Old Glory. Continue reading

The Tomi Lahren Debacle Proves that Many are Followers of Personalities and not Principles

At the outset, let’s address the caged cat: Ms. Lahren is heretically wrong on abortion and in contradicting her own statements on the matter proves she’s either a publicity-seeking opportunist or genuinely had a fascinatingly quick, Trump-like change of heart. I highly doubt the latter and I’ll explain why. But let’s scrutinize her recently announced posture on abortion first. Continue reading

Being Captain Obvious is a Good Thing

I was listening recently to a podcast episode hosted by a rather well-known conservative columnist. In said recording he mentions that he has garnered an audience due to the fact that he emphasizes the importance of that which is “obvious”. Moreover, the host added that if our culture weren’t so debauched, he would be out of a job and even feared admitting as much to his readers and listeners.

Personally, it was refreshing to hear such frank and straightforward commentary. Said honesty is sorely needed in a culture that has allowed itself to become accustomed to being lied to continually.

Yet, I do not agree with his sentiment that if society were more moral he’d be out of a job. Here’s why. Continue reading

Did Rush Limbaugh Advocate Groupthink?

Proper examination is everything. Without it, each and every one of us is easy prey for the charlatans and power-hungry folk who wish to dominate our lives.

Considering this fact, it was surprising and disturbing to hear Rush Limbaugh advise his listeners to disengage from what passes off for “news” nowadays and allow him to run “interference” and be the “boundaries” for them. Continue reading
