Tucker Carlson Is Right About Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

Jack Parkos | United States

Tucker Carlson, the host of “Tucker Carlson Tonight” on Fox News, recently did a segment on his show where he criticized Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s “Green New Deal” plan.

On his show, he called her a “screechy moron” as she does not criticize the amount of Chinese pollution.

But nobody in our ruling class is. You don’t see Democratic activists camped outside the Chinese embassy in protest. They’re not demanding sanctions on China. That screechy moron Ocasio-Cortez isn’t telling China to give up coal, oil, natural gas, and nuclear power within ten years. No way. The left loves the Chinese government. It’s their model for governing. A few years ago, California governor Jerry Brown flew — yes, flew — all the way to the Chinese mainland to praise its fascist government for its environmental leadership.

He furthermore explains how the Green New Deal has nothing to do with the environment, but rather is to give control of the economy over to Democrats.

Civilian Slaughter Is Somehow Legal in Apartheid Israel

Ryan Lau | @agorisms

The apartheid state of Israel has long tried to hide some of their more barbaric practices. Most notably, they adamantly refuse to admit their possession of nuclear weapons, despite possessing up to 400 of them. The country has also stolen weapons-grade uranium from the United States. Moreover, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu himself is far from an innocent man. He famously asserted that the terror attacks on 9/11 were good for Israel, and has smuggled nuclear triggers for his own program.

Sadly, though, these all pale in comparison to the Jewish state’s latest stroke of immorality. Continue reading “Civilian Slaughter Is Somehow Legal in Apartheid Israel”

The Only “National Emergency” We Face is a Potentially Unchecked Executive

Shiam Kannan | United States

President Donald Trump has never been a steadfast proponent of Constitutional conservatism, but on Friday, February 15th, 2019, he issued a full-fledged assault on American constitutional principles, declaring a National Emergency at the southern border in order to gain access to billions of dollars for the construction of a border barrier. While a strong case can be made on the merits of a border wall, the issue at hand goes further: our nation is at a Constitutional crossroads, and at this moment, we must decide whether the President has the power to spend money without Congressional consent.

The Constitution clearly addresses this issue, and the answer, according to the document, is a firm “no.” Article 1, Section 9, Clause 7 of the Constitution states that “[n]o Money shall be drawn from the Treasury but in Consequence of Appropriations made by Law.” In other words, if there is no appropriations bill passed by Congress delegating money for a specific purpose, then money cannot be spent on that purpose. This means that Trump does not have any authority under the Constitution to unilaterally fund his border wall, or anything else, for that matter, using taxpayer dollars, unless Congress passes a funding bill which explicitly authorizes it.

Fascism: What Does It Really Mean?

Ivan Misiura | United States

What is fascism and what does it stand for? In our political landscape, people throw the word around a lot, but they often have misconceptions about its true meaning. What, then, do acclaimed fascist leaders themselves have to say about it? Fascism is a tremendously complex ideology with books upon books explaining it, but a number of key principles are clear and simple.
