Why is America a Constitutional Republic and Not a Democracy?

If you listen to political pundits on MSNBC or CNN, you’ve probably heard some variation of the question, “Is Trump a threat to democracy?”

You may have also heard that the Electoral College undermines the people’s will and is a “threat to democracy.” Questioning Trump’s impact or the value of the Electoral College is one thing, but the underlying assumption that there’s an impact on democracy is problematic. Why? Because the United States is not, nor has it ever been, a democracy.

Instead, the Founding Fathers established a republic instead of democracy for a precise reason.

Trump challenges Biden to debate him at New York courthouse: ‘I’ve been waiting

Donald Trump responded to President Joe Biden’s recent comment that he would be “happy to debate” the former president on the Howard Stern Show with a Truth Social post calling out his successor to debate him in New York City.

Trump said he would debate Biden “ANYWHERE, ANYTIME, ANYPLACE” and would even “wait around” for the president to come to the courthouse Friday. At 4:50 p.m. Trump said he was still waiting.

Liberal government not immune from auto thefts: 48 vehicles stolen in recent years

The federal Liberals are trying to crack down on a scourge of auto thefts across the country, even as the government is struggling to keep its own vehicles away from thieves, new data show.

Documents tabled in the House of Commons on Monday show 48 government vehicles from 14 departments and agencies were stolen between January 2016 and February of this year.

Ministers are not immune, either. The official vehicle of the minister of justice was stolen three times in as many years between 2021 and 2023.

Anaida Poilievre is the Conservative Party’s secret weapon

On September 10, 2022, after the Conservative party leadership race results were announced and the winner was declared, I didn’t necessarily plan on watching Pierre Poilievre’s speech. It was obvious he would win. Nevertheless, I am glad I decided to check it out—and not because of Pierre. I hadn’t expected to see something completely new burst onto the Canadian political stage, and yet I did.

That “something new” came in the form of Anaida Poilievre, a Venezuelan Canadian introducing her husband as the next leader of one of Canada’s oldest political parties. She immediately grabbed my attention as she began her speech.

The CBC modernization panel has been named. Here’s who’s on it

Seven multimedia experts have been selected to advise Heritage Minister Pascale St-Onge as she renews the role of Canada’s public broadcaster.

The group will provide policy advice mainly on CBC/Radio-Canada’s governance and funding, Canadian Heritage said.

The department notes that consultations on the CBC’s mandate have already been done with the general public.

The newly appointed advisory panel will now help St-Onge chart a path forward, with members contributing knowledge from a variety of fields.

St-Onge said committee members have diverse perspectives and experiences that will help her modernize CBC and its French-language arm, Radio-Canada.

As CBC layoffs loom, ‘inappropriate’ bonuses in centre stage. How much are they?

Amid plans by CBC to cut 10 per cent of its workforce, the House of Commons heritage committee on Tuesday said it would be “inappropriate for the CBC to grant bonuses to executive members.”

San Francisco’s free booze for homeless alcoholics program slammed by critics

San Francisco is getting hammered for spending millions of dollars on a program that gives free booze to homeless alcoholics, but researchers are insisting the multimillion-dollar strategy has merit.

Keanan Joyner, a professor and researcher in the Clinical Research on Externalizing and Addiction Mechanisms Lab at the University of California, Berkeley, called San Francisco's Managed Alcohol Program, or MAP, "a very positive thing."

On the Madness of Modern Liberalism:
The egalitarianism and welfarism of modern liberal government are incompatible with the facts of human nature and the human condition. But the rise to power of the liberal agenda has resulted from the fact that the people of western societies have irrationally demanded that governments take care of them and manage their lives instead of protecting their property rights. This misconception results in massive violations of those rights while permitting government officials to act out their own and their constituents' psychopathology... (click here to continue)

On the Ideals and Dangers of Liberalism:
Any government with the power to mother its citizens also has the power to dominate them and steal from them: to overtax them, confiscate their property and override their binding agreements. For this reason, the legally enforceable institutions of society must be very limited, lest the government charged with protecting the people against tyranny and theft becomes itself the most dangerous tyrant and thief.

Under the creed of modern liberalism, the individual citizen is not called to maturity but is instead invited to begin a second childhood. Like the child at play, he is given, or at least promised, ultimate economic, social and political security without having to assume responsibility for himself... (click here to continue)

If there is one common enemy that all opponents of individual liberty, free markets, and limited government seemingly can agree upon it is the “evil” of neo-liberalism. Everything that is hated in an open, competitive market society is summed into that word and condemned. The problem is that actual free market liberalism has nothing to do with its “neo-liberal” caricature and is being used as a rationale for abolishing what remains today of a free market society.

It’s reasonable to call Trudeau a modern-day socialist

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, alongside other national and provincial leaders, can rightly be called a “socialist” in the modern sense.

Socialism, at its core, remains an ideology of the benefits of top-down decision-making by elites, for and in the interests of the collective. Over time, the meaning of socialism has changed and evolved. Its original conception—and technical definition—is state ownership of the means of production, namely factories, machinery, etc. For the most part, there are very few socialists who now advocate for the government to nationalize industries.

Trudeau's Socialist Experiment Has Failed

Enough is enough.

We are long past the time in which there is a debate over the merits of Justin Trudeau’s economic policies.

Those policies have failed.

Housing is increasingly unaffordable, something that is completely appalling given Canada’s nearly limitless landmass.

Violent crime is surging.

Party identification among religious groups and religiously unaffiliated voters

The relationship between partisanship and voters’ religious affiliation continues to be strong – especially when it comes to whether they belong to any organized religion at all.

The gap between voters who identify with an organized religion and those who do not has grown much wider in recent years.

Protestants mostly align with the Republican Party. Protestants remain the largest single religious group in the United States. As they have for most of the past 15 years, a majority of Protestant registered voters (59%) associate with the GOP, though as recently as 2009 they were split nearly equally between the two parties.

Democrats' big vulnerability: Why they're losing Black, Hispanic voters

New data shows that Democrats' longtime advantage with Black, Latino and Asian American voters has shrunk to its lowest point in more than 60 years — creating a massive vulnerability for President Biden and congressional Democrats.

Why it matters: One of the most loyal parts of the Democratic coalition is suddenly in danger. Black and Hispanic men could vote Republican in numbers not seen since President Dwight D. Eisenhower was elected in the 1950s.

The big picture: Latinos, the nation's largest non-white group, still lean Democratic. But they've been shifting Republican over the last two decades, and are no longer the slam-dunk Democrats they were in 1960 when JFK ran for president.

Justin Trudeau's Mass Migration Scheme to Replace the Canadian Population

According to Dan Murray, the creator of the Immigration Watch Canada, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has declared war against his country, people, and culture. The World Economic Forum-controlled leader is welcoming an unprecedented level of immigrants that will have a massive and irreversible demographic impact on Canada. Trudeau had already increased his country’s excessive immigrant intake to stratospheric levels. Now the Globalist leader is setting an even higher target: 1.3 million over the next three years on a population of under 39 million.

Radical politics must be pushed out of education system for good

Parents want children to be educated, not indoctrinated

When it comes to education in Ontario, the inmates are truly running the asylum. While the Doug Ford government has spent the last several years pushing an approach that goes back to the basics and focuses on student achievement, the people running the system have other ideas.

Now boards are even pushing back against orders from the Ministry of Education to cease and desist from using divisive, radical, race-based, political documents.

Public Education and the Global Failure of Socialism

Public Education: Socialism’s Last Refuge

And the ironic cause of that demise could very well be our own reluctance either to privatize or radically restructure the most socialist enterprise in the Western world, that $180 billion near-monopoly known as U.S. public education.

Some years ago I asked Nobel economist Milton Friedman why it was, given the appalling and obvious failures of socialism everywhere in the world contrasted with the stunning successes of market capitalism, that most American students still graduated from high school with such a surprisingly socialist perspective. His answer was characteristically clear: “Because they are products of a socialist system—namely public education. How can you expect such a system to inculcate the values of free enterprise and individual entrepreneurship and competition when it is based on monopoly state ownership, abhors competition, and survives only through compulsion and taxation?”

What is capitalism?

Capitalism is a popular economic system that relies on private ownership and competition to drive economic advancement. It’s responsible for many of the incredible products and technologies we enjoy every day.

You’re participating in capitalism when you purchase goods and services or trade your labor for a wage. You’re also participating every time you invest, which is all the time if you have an investment portfolio or high interest savings account.

Capitalism is an economic system where private individuals own the means of production and where production levels are based on free market competition.

Capitalism is an economic system where private individuals and businesses own the means of production. The production levels and prices of goods and services are based on free market competition, not a central government or regulating body. Investments are determined by private decisions.

The Crown corporation informed the government of its position in a recent letter. It said its decision was based on concerns about its employees' security, according to federal sources who were not authorized to discuss the matter publicly.

And the results? Spectacular. When terrorists attacked a school in Maalot in 1974, instead of declaring every school a gun-free zone, Israel passed a law mandating armed security in schools, provided weapons training to teachers, and, even today, runs frequent active shooter drills. There have been only two school shootings since then, and both have ended with teachers killing the terrorists.

They exploited the urgent need for government assistance caused by the pandemic to entrench executive power at the expense of personal freedom.

18 New CA Gun Laws That Take Effect In 2024 And Beyond

CALIFORNIA — More than 42,000 people died of gun violence in the United States during 2023. The Dec. 29 figure comes from the Gun Violence Archive, a nonprofit organization that touts itself as an independent data collection and research institute with no affiliation to any advocacy group.

The Golden State was not spared firearm deaths over the last year, according to GVA. California saw its share of suicides, mass shootings, homicides and accidental gun deaths involving all ages, races and genders.

In response to firearm violence, state lawmakers have worked to impose more gun laws. Here's a rundown of what to expect in 2024 and beyond.

WEF-Linked Calgary Mayor Says ‘Never Being Able To Own a Home’ Gives You ‘More Freedom’

Mayor Gondek, who happens to own two houses in Calgary, claimed that owning nothing is synonymous with being happy during a discussion with the development company RNDSQR.

“We’re starting to see a segment of the population reject this idea of owning a home, and they’re moving towards rental because it gives them more freedom,” said Gondek.

Trudeau hits peak panic with halal mortgage scheme

A drowning man will grasp at any straw when going under and the Grits are sinking fast

Panic is disturbing to witness.

We’re getting an eyeful these days courtesy of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s regime, one that has moved beyond arrogance, through confusion, to now stand on the verge of outright political hysteria.

Last week’s federal budget was a shipwreck of Titanic proportions. Nothing made sense: all was virtue-signalling tied at the hip to massive, never-ending borrowing, with the only certainty being an ability to further divide Canadians.

Don't be fooled by deepfake videos and photos this election cycle. Here's how to spot AI

There was the deepfake audio robocall of President Joe Biden telling you to hold your vote. And just last week, a phony video of Donald Trump with Black voters made the rounds.

AI deepfakes are a massive problem this election season, and it’s easy to get taken – especially when your news and social feeds are full of this junk.

Misinformation, disinformation, and fake news: lessons from an interdisciplinary, systematic literature review

While history shows that false and misleading information is not a new phenomenon (Kapantai et al., Citation2021; Ortoleva, Citation2019), most observers seem to agree that misinformation, disinformation, and fake news have become much more prevalent during the last decade (Benkler et al., Citation2018; Kavanagh & Rich, Citation2018; O’Connor & Weatherall, Citation2019). Often cited reasons are the 2016 U.S. Presidential election and the Brexit referendum in 2016, that were both characterized by widespread disinformation and misinformation and – in the U.S. case – accusations of fake news. As a result, several scholars have argued that we currently live in a ‘post-truth’ era (Lewandowsky et al., Citation2017) or an ‘misinformation age’ (O’Connor & Weatherall, Citation2019).

College Kids Don’t Understand Socialism—or Capitalism. Our Research Proves It

America's standing as the world's largest economy, with a reputation as a hub of innovation and as a land of opportunity, owes much to its system of free-market capitalism. Economic freedom has lifted more than one billion people out of poverty worldwide. And yet, there continues to be skepticism about capitalism in the U.S., where people blame economic freedom for everything from COVID-19 to the fire in the Gulf of Mexico.

Trust in capitalism has especially diminished among young people, to the point where capitalism and socialism are equally popular. While the reasons for such skepticism are varied, Harvard Economist Edward Glaeser has hypothesized that the young are reacting negatively to policies that favor entrenched interests (crony capitalism) and that they favor "hyper-redistribution" rather than true socialism. Others have argued that students are being influenced by left-wing professors who dominate American college campuses.

Federal government promising a 'renters' bill of rights' in upcoming budget

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced that his government will introduce new measures — including a new "bill of rights" — that he says will help protect those who rent their homes as part of the upcoming budget.

Trudeau said the new measures are specifically geared toward younger people, who are renting more than previous generations.

As USPS institutes network reforms, mail delivery hits a 3-year low

The U.S. Postal Service has continued to see slower mail delivery across the country, with delays picking up as the agency is in the throes of transforming its entire network.

Postal management has repeatedly pointed to isolated incidents causing temporary disruptions—rather than any systemic issues—to explain the declining performance, though the trend has now persisted for nearly six months and is causing stakeholders and advocates to question the true root of the problem.

USPS is now delivering just 83% of First-Class mail on time during the current fiscal quarter, its worst rate in three years. That is down from 86% in the first quarter and 91% in both the fourth quarter of fiscal 2023 and the same period last year.

Saving Wollman Rink made Trump a New York City hero

In the context of Donald Trump’s globe-girdling career, his repair job 30 years ago on an old ice skating rink might seem to merit a mere footnote. But Trump’s reopening of Central Park’s Wollman Rink in 1986 was a defining moment for him — and for many New Yorkers, a hell of a first impression.
