The Electoral College – Does it Work for America?

The electoral college has been the subject of debate since it was first created. Recently, arguments for and against the institution have bubbled back up to the surface. As the American experiment progresses, it will become even more critical for people to understand this component of the electoral process.

Open Letter from Medical Doctors and Health Professionals to All Belgian Authorities and All...

We, Belgian doctors and health professionals, wish to express our serious concern about the evolution of the situation in the recent months surrounding the outbreak of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. We call on politicians to be independently and critically informed in the decision-making process and in the compulsory implementation of corona-measures. We ask for an open debate, where all experts are represented without any form of censorship. After the initial panic surrounding covid-19, the objective facts now show a completely different picture – there is no medical justification for any emergency policy anymore.

Witchcraft, Leprosy, and Covid: “Power to Harm” as Political Weapon

The Covid pandemic is mired in questions of responsibility and blame. In the heat of panic, we abandoned all of our prior behaviors and assumptions surrounding communicable diseases, instantly replacing them with a propaganda-driven “new morality.” In the ultimate switcheroo, instead of assuming personal responsibility for our own health, we are now encouraged to blame others for hurting us if they refuse to fundamentally alter their lives in order to “protect” us.

Are Lockdowns an Election-Year Ransom Note?

“We don’t realistically anticipate that we would be moving to either tier 2 or reopening K-12 schools at least until after the election, in early November.” Those are the words of a west coast health director. No in-person schooling until after the election? Hmmm.

Should K-12 classrooms teach from the 1619 Project?

The New York Times’s 1619 Project is coming under renewed scrutiny as the latest flashpoint in the heated cultural battles over education policy. For the past year the Times, through a partnership with the Pulitzer Center,has aggressively pushed state and local school boards to adopt its controversial readings about slavery and American history as part of their K-12 school curricula.

China v Hollywood: Money or Freedom?

How far is America willing to take political correctness and refrain from saying or doing anything that might offend someone, whether here in the United States or elsewhere in the world? For Hollywood, that answer would be pretty far.

How Government Sells Fear and Sickness: The Case of the Flu

This fall expect the government-funded flu propaganda machine to be out in full force telling you it is your duty to receive a flu vaccination. In language similar to what they use for masks, we are instructed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), to “protect yourself—and those around you—by getting a flu vaccine.”

Do Black Americans Really Want to Defund the Police?

The media and the left in general tell us that black Americans want to “defund the police.” But is it true? The story goes that the police are violent against black Americans and that’s the motive behind the defund the police movement. But a recent survey tells a different story.

The Politicization of the Post Office was Inevitable

In the ramp-up to the election, the United States Post Office (USPS) has been a strange object of debate. Numerous politicians and pundits (on all sides of the political spectrum) have claimed that the USPS is being politicized. That is a strange claim to me as an economic historian who has spent time studying the history of postal services. I say strange because the origins of the USPS are not to be found in high ideals but rather in the dirty world of politicking. As such, when one claims that the USPS is being politicized, one is highlighting its very nature.

Trump’s Pardon: Susan B. Anthony Remembered

August 18 marks 100 years since the ratification of the 19th Amendment, giving women the right to vote. President Donald Trump, in a surprise move, pardoned the Women’s Suffrage movement’s Susan Brownell Anthony, to mark this century anniversary. Anthony’s crime? She dared to vote.
