In a bizarre first briefing, White House press secretary Sean Spicer on Saturday unloaded a blistering attack on the media and accused it of false reporting about the otherwise irrelevant question of why Trump’s inauguration crowd was visibly smaller than that of Obama’s.

Today’s Women’s March in D.C., where allegedly over 500,000 women turned out to protest the Trump presidency, turned awkward on Saturday afternoon when Madonna took the stage and first dropped three f-bombs during her address, sending cable stations including C-Span, CNN and MSNBC scrambling to cut audio, before the singer casually admitted she had thought […]

Submitted by Mike Krieger via Liberty Bltizkrieg blog, I have serious concerns about a Trump Presidency. I’ve laid these out repeatedly in the past, but to summarize, they center around his authoritarian nature, a disregard for civil liberties, and lastly the fact that many of the people he has surrounded himself with posses an ideology which […]

Inequality Doesn’t Create Poverty

Submitted by Ryan McMaken via The Mises Institute, Oxfam, the leftwing NGO devoted to poverty relief has released a new report blaming poverty in wealth inequality.
