Barstool Sports, the go-to media outlet of the Proud Boys, your local jock, and everyone in-between, has gotten itself into trouble, again. This time, it’s over America’s best-known group of swindlers; that’s right, labor unions. CEO and founder Dave Portnoy caused a moral “outrage” on social media by saying that workers of Barstool Sports would be fired “on the spot” if they engaged in any discussion of unionization. Shortly afterward, Portnoy’s replies were full of angry social justice warriors hysterically shrieking over a tongue-in-cheek joke that they simply blew out of proportion.

Over-The-Counter Birth Control Doesn’t Help Women

To the surprise of partisan politicians and voters everywhere, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ted Cruz have appeared to team up on the issue of over-the-counter birth control. Despite their shared goal, their reasonings for over-the-counter birth control are quite different from each other. AOC supports it because she sees it as a way to expand women’s access to healthcare. Ted Cruz sees it as the alternative to a heavily socialized healthcare system. They both have good intentions. However, they are both tragically wrong. Over-the-counter birth control is not a utopic savior of women’s reproductive rights. It also is a drastic simplification of how a free-market healthcare system would operate. Over-the-counter birth control is indeed one of the easiest ways to put women’s health at risk.

AOC Risks Losing to Republicans in 2020

Peyton Gouzien | @PGouzien

Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s unfavorability among voters in her own district has gone up to 50.88%. The poll, done by the “Stop AOC” PAC, shows startling results for AOC’s re-election bid. 33.4% of voters in her district pledged to oppose her. Additionally, only 13.3% of voters said they wouldn’t oppose her, with the rest unsure.

Low polling is attributed to the New York Amazon deal that AOC opposed. The deal never came to fruition due to her opposition. Thanks to polling, it shows that her actions on this deal could come to haunt her when 2020 rolls around. She already has a Republican challenger in Rich Valdes, an associate producer of the Mark Levin Show. Valdez plans to run against AOC in 2020. However, he is not alone in the pledge to oppose AOC as another Republican seeks her seat. Bronx Republican and Medical Journalist, Ruth Papazian, pledged back in March to run against AOC. Papazian has already challenged the congresswoman to debate, of which no response has been made. Additionally, Scherie Murray, a Jamaican immigrant and businesswoman, recently launched her bid to oust AOC.

Joe Biden Proves Establishment Politics Are Dangerous

Ellie McFarland | @El_FarAwayLand

The 2020 election is just over a year away, but there is already a long list of candidates running on the Democratic ballot. In June next year, the DNC will hold their primary debates in Milwaukee with over 20 candidates participating. Those who lean anti-establishment have had their eyes on Andrew Yang and Tulsi Gabbard, but it’s easy to forget that they are both polling below 2%. At the top are still Bernie Sanders, Kamala Harris, and at the very top with 27%, Joe Biden.

Socialism?: An Insult Posing as an Economic System

Ellie McFarland | @El_FarAwayLand

In November of 2018, the United States held the midterm elections. It elected dozens of brand new faces to Congress; including the now infamous Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC). She is a “Democratic Socialist” and is a Congresswoman for New York’s 14th district. AOC’s success ushered in an entirely new era of democratic politicians. She proved that more radical policies can be popular and added to the growing pool of “socialists” in Congress. Bernie Sanders and AOC are the two most prominent democratically socialist thinkers in government right now. With this shifting climate against “the elites” in mind, it’s important to examine the ideas people are putting forth with a critical eye.
