Its Not Getting Better: Cops in the U.S. Still Kill Someone Every 8 Hours

police killingsunder 1050x525

It has been nearly two years since Derek Chauvin murdered George Floyd. At the time, Floyd’s death would set off massive protests across the country as politicians and political pundits played lip service to Black Lives Matter and others, as they offered up their hollow support. Illustrating the extremely hollow nature of their “support” is the fact that despite all the appeals to emotion, the toothless “reform” bills, and incessant gaslighting—absolutely nothing has changed. As the fourth month of 2022 begins, American cops are keeping to their deadly numbers like clockwork. One quarter...

Pulling Decentralization from the Ruins of ‘Liberal Democracy’

maps 812736 1280

So-called liberal democracies have characterized the West for the past century and are viewed as the pinnacle of political development. So much so that Western elites are firmly convinced that this system of governance should be spread far and wide—be it indirectly (color revolutions) or directly (economic sanctions, kinetic military actions, or nation-building expeditions). Liberal democracies are political systems in which people entrust political power to a political class that, at least on paper, is constitutionally limited when it comes to exercising political power. Further, liberal...

Cancel Culture only has a total of four plays in its playbook: Accuse of misinformation/fringe opinion Accuse of racism Accuse of sex abuse Accuse of national security threat/threat to democracy After that, they're out of plays. And Cancel Culture nearly always uses each of these plays in order. Play #1 -Misinformation The first play, the claim of misinformation, is usually enough to get most normies canceled on social media. The psychology behind it is fairly powerful; most people don't like liars. Even among those who are disposed to treat inaccurate speech with other speech that's...

Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin has agreed to extend a National Guard deployment on the streets of the nation's capital – set to face down the anti-Covid mandate “People’s Convoy” as the American public remains fixated on Russia’s war on Ukraine. Pentagon spokesman John Kirby announced the move on Monday, saying the Department of Defense had extended the “previously approved National Guard support in the District, including around the US Capitol area.” Austin first authorized the 700-troop deployment in late February, which was set to expire Monday. The National Guard will provide...

What Does a Capitol Fence Say to the World?

capitol police

Spooked by the threat of anti-Biden trucker convoys heading to Washington, high fences will reportedly return around the US Capitol in the coming days. When President Biden gives his State of the Union speech on Tuesday, he will have no fears of hearing any caterwauling from average Americans who are being impoverished and injected thanks to his policies. Hundreds of National Guard troops will also be deployed on the streets of Washington, perhaps finally vanquishing the local epidemic of double-parking and jaywalking. Any fence that is erected around the Capitol will be designed to...
