The West’s Rejection of Beauty and Its Resulting Collapse

What made Apple products so much better than the competition? Aesthetics. They might not work as well as a Windows product for productive tasks, they cost far more than the competition, and they’re far harder to maintain or repair than other, similar products. Yet people line up to buy them. In these dark times, these days without beauty, we unwittingly grasp at anything that fills the hole in our soul. A consumer product won’t fill it, but, because its aesthetics remind us of the beauty that was once omnipresent, we subconsciously hope it will.

A Reminder: Freedom is More Important than Safety

America was a wonderful place because her citizens were free. They could do as they pleased, safety be damned, and they did those things well. They settled the west and built the railroads despite Indians, climate challenges, and scarce supplies. They went to the moon, made electricity practical for private use, invented the machine gun, and built the skyscrapers without safety harnesses. America, for a brief, shining moment, was a truly free nation full of free men.

“Cry More, Lib”: How to Deal with Leftists

It used to be that both parties could go along to get along and America would be relatively well off either way. One gets the sense it didn’t much matter whether Nixon or JFK was president, things would have been somewhat similar either way, however dire and important the elections seemed at the time. Such is life during the calmer phases of history’s cycles.

AlignPay: The Free Speech Alternative to PayPal

The problem with many conservative alternatives to Big Tech platforms is that the concepts aren’t mature or the services aren’t particularly good. Parler was a great idea that was executed in a haphazard manner and ultimately became unusable. Other social media alternatives have a limited user base and/or don’t have enough features to make them as useful as the Big Tech ones.

Trump Hurt Your Feelings, Biden Is Hurting Everything Else

Instead, he endlessly attacked his enemies, constantly fought for the common man, and did everything in his power to make America better off. He implemented tariffs to protect America industry, slapped down disastrous trade policies, and never gave in to the radical left on culture war issues. The RINOs never had the cajones to do any of that.

DeSantis Declares Students Must Learn about the Evils of Communism

The proposed curriculum will include the use of “portraits in patriotism” to tell stories of Americans who have been civic-minded, and will include “first-person accounts of victims of other nations’ governing philosophies who can compare those philosophies with those of the United States.”

Critical Space Theory: NASA Puts Diversity Before Merit

The average Joe would probably want his spaceship designed, built, and controlled by the best people. When you’re in the radioactive, frozen vacuum that is space, flying in a ship that would explode if even the slightest error were made during construction or if the pilot steered it in the wrong direction, where almost anything going wrong or being done incorrectly would mean certain death, merit matters far more than diversity.

A Slap in the Face: The UK is Selling Billions in Military Tech to the CCP

This is the equivalent of the Venetians selling the Ottomans crossbows, Honeywell execs sending military tech to China, or of Israel selling the Red Chinese air-to-air missile tech. It is weakening us, the West, and strengthening our greatest enemy. The UK must be reigned in if it wants to keep its “special” relationship with the US.

Death By Political Correctness: 4 Stories that Show the Death of the West

The West is suffering death by political correctness. Weak men have allowed Pakistani rape gangs to form and spread, terror attacks to transpire, and no-go zones to form. Thanks to them, the third world is taking over Europe. Sweden has turned into Iraq, Britain is obviously overrun by savages, and no one is doing anything about it.

Biden is Cultivating Racism, as Farmers Fight His Race-Based Loan Program

Unfortunately, the corrupt hacks that compose the Biden Administration have a different view of things. In their critical race theory-based, “anti-racist” view, past racism can only be “fixed” by present racism. So, rather than lampoon and attack the racist UBI program in Oakland, the Biden Admin decided to create a race-based loan program.

NYC Cancels Columbus Day

New Yorkers don’t need the city government to attack Columbus. They need the city to reopen so that they can go back to work and earn a living again as their countrymen in Florida and other free states are now doing.

WTF?!: Hundreds of Millions of PPP Funds Went to Chinese Businesses

The fact that the government handed out hundreds of millions of dollars to CCP companies shows just why you shouldn’t trust the government: it can’t do anything right. The PPP loans were meant to support small, American businesses. That didn’t happen; small businesses have been closing at a rapid clip.

FAKE HATE CRIME: Viterbo University Experiences Unnecessary Racial Animus

The left wants the supply of racist incidents to be high so that they have much about which they can complain. The problem is, that supply just isn’t there. So they make up incidents. Jussie Smollett. Bubba Wallace. This case at Viterbo. Etc. They’re all just made up. America isn’t a racist nation, however much leftists want it to be.

Red Flags and Ghost Guns: Slow Joe’s Gun Control Diktats

Joe Biden’s executive orders are immoral, unconstitutional, and absolutely ludicrous. No crimes are committed with ghost guns. Red flag laws are a blatant attack on the 2nd Amendment. Gun control not only doesn’t work, but it actually leads to increased crime.

The National Debt is $85,210 Per Person

They’ve put the American state on a path to bankruptcy and disgrace, not because spending needed to happen but because they were too incompetent to create a balanced budget. And now we’re all on the hook, to the tune of $85,210 each.

Anti-White Discrimination: Oakland’s Racist UBI Program

Taking from one group and redistributing the confiscated resources to others never ends well, especially if the redistribution is premised on immutable characteristics. It doesn’t solve any issues, it just creates new ones and replaces previous goodwill with ill will and animus.

National (In)security: San Francisco Released 2400 Illegals

At a time when illegals in NC are being indicted for voting illegally, Iranians are trying to sneak across the border, and Border Patrol is catching people like this convicted rapist, it’s time to take border security seriously, not allow illegals to leave jail and prowl the streets.

Gov. Abbott: Biden is Hiding the Number of Covid-Infected Illegals

iden is keeping schools closed at the behest of anti-taxpayer teacher unions while, in the meantime, opening the border to any that want to break our immigration laws and potentially prey on our populace. He’s letting in thousands of migrants, releasing everyone in ICE custody, and not even giving Texas the data it needs on Covid-infected illegal immigrants.

Why and How You Should Boycott Google

Google has become an activist corporation that actively works against conservatives. It used to be a business, now it’s effectively a progressive policy group. Thanks to that change, conservatives need to steel themselves and boycott Google.

The Stalinist Purge of the American Military

With Biden’s Stalinist purge of the military, it might become yet another leftist institution that conservatives aren’t welcome in and actively works to help the Democrats, as is already the case with our universities, courts, executive agencies, and media.

The Twitter Censorship Will Be an Unending Assault on Free Speech

It is only by reducing the number of active Twitter accounts that we can successfully fight back. That will hit them in the pocketbook and either a competitor like Parler will become the more attractive alternative, or Twitter will have to permanently return its policies to their original free state.

China Owns America: The Shameful Auctioning Off of America’s Power

A deep sense of malaise seems to have settled over America. Our politicians, from Biden at the top to lowly state-level bureaucrats like Georgia’s Secretary of State Raffensberger, are corrupt and sneer at us plebes for pointing to their corruption as evidence that they’re not our betters and that China owns America and its politicians. The media lies to us.

Will You Bend the Knee? Or Will You Stand Up and Live Free?

Americans have grown dangerously accustomed to tyranny as of late. Whether that tyranny’s source is the incompetent federal government’s agents, such as Dr. Fauci, tyranny from hypocritical blue state governors, or the tyrannical actions of the Big Tech monopolies, Americans don’t resist anymore. They just bend the knee and go along with it.

Blue State Hypocrisy: 15 Democrats Who Don’t Follow Their Own Rules

The Democrat hypocrites create stricter and stricter rules to deal with the phantom menace of COVID but then refuse to follow those rules themselves. Democrat mayors and governors shut down small businesses, didn’t let spouses and children mourn the passing of loved ones, ruined the academic experience of millions of students, and wrecked the dreams of many more millions of Americans.
