On 5/6/2021, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders shook the world when his official Twitter account posted the following in response to Republican efforts to remove Liz Cheney from leadership:

Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) will likely be voted off the House Republican Leadership. Her crime: acknowledging the reality that Trump lost the election. The Republican Party is no longer a “conservative” party. It is an anti-democratic cult pushing the Big Lie and conspiracy theories.

Many took this as a defense of Liz Cheney, and the replies to Sander’s tweet rightfully point out that Cheney is just as wrong as many of the…


Nixon is a shifty-eyed goddamn liar. He’s one of the few in the history of this country to run for high office talking out of both sides of his mouth at the same time and lying out of both sides. — Harry Truman

It has been six months since the 2020 Presidential Election, and the nonsense idea that Joe Biden stole the election from Donald Trump still has not waned. Depending on the poll, anywhere from 50% to 90% of Republicans believe that Joe Biden stole the election from Donald Trump. Of course, there still remains no hard evidence to…


The worst place to be in politics is between Ron DeSantis and a camera. Yesterday, after weeks of teasing it, the Florida Governor signed legislation banning “vaccine passports” in his home state.

Throughout the entire COVID-19 pandemic, DeSantis has entered the spotlight as the governor least concerned about the effects of the illness. This is the same man who arrested a nurse with data on COVID-19 deaths that contradicted his narrative, banned local governments from issuing mask mandates (where he got the power to do that I still remain unsure), to comparing those who wanted schools to remain closed to…


Over the past couple of weeks, I’ve been marathoning Daria on Paramount Plus and really enjoying it. For those unaware, Daria — based on the character of the same name from MTV’s monster hit Beavis And Butthead — was an animated series that aired on MTV in the late 1990s and early 2000s. It has since developed a cult fanbase which due to its dry humor and unique characters which, as this article will explain, I am officially a member of.

The show stars Daria Morgendorffer, a teenage girl going to Lawndale Highschool who is notable for her intelligence, her…


Notes On A Definition

Originally, this article was going to be about Tucker Carlson’s 4/29/2021 comments on the 1965 Immigration And Nationalization Act and how they blew right through his facade of “not talking about race” during his “replacement” rant from earlier in April. And while that is an important topic, as well as a topic many have already commented on, the truth is just calling Tucker Carlson a white supremacist won’t do anything by itself.

At this point, it is near impossible to deny that Tucker Carlson is a white supremacist. When Tucker Carlson Tonight first replaced The O’Reilly Factor in April 2017…


Dismantling a common modern mythology of the Civil War era

Michele Bachmann has never been one to have a good understanding of history. When she was in Congress, and especially during her 2012 Presidential Campaign, she became known for her many gaffes regarding her understanding of the past of our nation. From telling New Hampshire “You’re the state where the shot was heard around the world at Lexington and Concord,” to talking about President Roosevelt’s “Hoot-Smolly Tariff Act,” to saying John Quincy Adams “would not rest until slavery was extinguished in the country.” …


It is very rare that I find something Pat Buchanan says to be insightful or interesting, but such an occasion has come forth. The current debate over D.C. Statehood is split between two sides, those who want D.C. to have representation in Congress and those who are scared they’ll pick a member of the other party. Pat Buchanan belongs firmly to the second camp, as he explained in a column published on 4/27/2021:

Since the 23rd Amendment was ratified, 60 years ago, D.C. residents have voted in 15 presidential elections. In all 15 elections, D.C.’s three electoral votes have gone…


4/24/2021 marked the 106th anniversary of the beginning of the Armenian Genocide, the biggest genocide in human history at that point with an estimated death count of between 1.2 and 1.5 million. It was the first ethnocide of the 20th century, and has been denied by many nations across the globe. As of 2021, every government of Turkey since it gained independence in 1923 has made denial of this atrocity the official policy.

The Armenian Genocide is also one of the most denied genocides in human history. While nobody denies mass murder took place, many argue the murder took place…


So now Caitlyn Jenner, the well-known male-to-female transgender individual who became famous as an athlete named Bruce Jenner, has announced that she is running for governor of California in the case of a recall election for Gavin Newsom. Of course, the proposition of a Newsom recall has not even made it on the ballot for 2021, but that does not matter, because this movement made up of failed Tea Party politicians has gained in liberal California over rather popular COVID-19 measures. Politico reported on 3/31/2021 that 56% of voters said they’d vote for Newsom in the event of a recall…


This article is dedicated to a small Twitter user named Bo Winegard, who tweeted the following on 4/21/2021:

What the New Atheists are starting to realize is that many atheists are more dogmatic, intolerant, and irrational than evangelical Christians. It turns out that eradicating one totalizing ideology often simply leaves space for another.

This sentiment, the idea that atheists are just as dogmatic about this or that as the religious are about their god, has been around for centuries. Although he never actually said this, a popular quote misattributed to G.K. Chesterton goes:

When people stop believing in God, they…
