Donald Trump is the first American President who has attained the office without having first held a position beyond that of a private citizen, a fact that holds both great opportunity and great risk for himself and our country, if history is any teacher.
We have essentially handed the unlimited spending power to the federal government, which we fund through the discretionary power of Congress, to confiscate as much of our hard-earned income directly through our crooked progressive income tax. This was never the conceptualization of the Framers of the Constitution and it should be undone for the tyrannical misappropriation of government power that it is.
We want to be a single People of brethren, Never to part in danger nor distress. We want to be free, as our fathers were, And rather die than live in slavery. We want to trust in the one highest God And never be afraid of human power. -The Rütlischwur, legendary oath of the Swiss Confederacy
Well, it appears leftists can’t seem to get enough of throwing around disinformation about “fascism” ever since Donald Trump got elected. I’ll be the first to admit that the alt-right and the small remnant of white nationalists are not doing themselves any favors online by constantly stirring shit up in an attempt to troll the social justice crowd, but the left has never gotten fascism correct.
Let's not pretend we can ignore the observation of economists, historians, and reality. Nazism, Nationalists-Socialism, is a left-wing ideology, can be adapted to any race, and it's cousin, "democratic" socialism is a different name for tyranny.
To progressives, liberation was once the opposite of oppression. For today's regressive left, the opposite of oppression is privilege, and we combat it by denying to others those rights which they currently enjoy. What happened?
The Dutch Republic began as a demand for religious and economic liberty from a tyrannical rule, the war fought for it's independence from the Spanish Empire Resulted in the Treaty of Westphalia, which ended nearly a century of religious warfare and established freedom of religion in Western Europe.
This was one of the best calls we've had with a medical professional to date. Dr. LaValle talks about the importance of diet, sleep, de-stressing, pH balancing, and more; including the usage of Vitamins A & D, and the wonders of Aged Garlic Extract (AGE).
You can tell that Mortensen's character is a very radicalized ideologue with perhaps some kind of academic background. He seems to have some kind of leftist neo-hippie philosophy where the modern world has become corrupted by consumerism, corporations, and perverted science. He makes numerous mentions to malfeasance of modern institutions like hospitals, the food industry, and the education system. It is stated later in the movie that his goal was to isolate his family so not only would his children be raised to "philosopher kings" in a unique paradise but also so his wife perhaps would become mentally well. But it is his own egotism in this regard that pushes his family away from him throughout the movie.
Earlier in the year, Dr. Estes joined me to talk about addiction therapy and how the current climate—as it pertains to pharmacology, the War on Drugs, and the subsequent enforcement of drug laws—actually hinders society more than it helps. In this latest appearance, Dr. Estes focuses on her efforts in prescribing Marijuana to combat the worst effects of detoxing from opiate addiction.
You see, despite what you may have heard, the Dakota Access Pipeline is not intruding on native land. It is not poisoning the water. It is not trampling over sacred burial sites or artifacts. It is just one of many pipelines that actually crisscross our nation and even along the same path as this current project.
We can spend time dissecting the life of Fidel Castro until the state-confiscated cows come home, but instead, I'd like to take the time to examine of the latest example of Castro-eulogizing we've seen in the last couple of days—this time, from Black Lives Matter.
Judging by the fact that the mainstream media has lower approval ratings than Congress itself, we all seem to agree that the “media is bullshit”...unless, of course, the narrative speaks to a specific group’s personal interest.
The political needs and wants of citizens vary on a very broad spectrum based on their differing locations. What is good for those in New York City is not necessarily the same for those in say Sioux Falls, SD - heck, the politics in Lake Pleasant, NY vastly differ from those in Brooklyn, NY. Different locations of a state can have completely distinctive interests from one another. So, when it comes to national politics, you have to take into account these diverse demographics because policies will often be viewed differently.
