MEMBERS ONLY: American Capitalism Is Making You Sick And Destroying Itself

Posted in Members Only

Capitalism as an economic model for society is basically an untouchable concept in America. Anyone who disagrees with this is a socialist, or worse, a communist who doesn’t understand “how things work”. And by “work”, this means making as many people materially wealthy as possible. But capitalism also makes us sick, and has other consequences so severe we dare not mention them out loud. There are some serious problems...

MEMBERS ONLY: Kevin Hart Still Doesn’t Realize He’s The Problem

Posted in Media, Members Only

Last December, after comedian Kevin Hart had been announced as the host of next years’ Oscars, he was criticized for his homophobic jokes and tweets. Some of these jokes were mean-spirited; he said someone’s profile looked like “a gay bill board for AIDS.” Others were downright violent, like when he said that if he ever found his son playing with a dollhouse, he’d break it over his head and say “stop that’s...

MEMBERS ONLY: Would You Vote For Trump If He Was Progressive? I Wouldn’t, And Here’s Why.

Posted in Members Only, Politics

Over the holiday season, I spent time with an uncle in the U.K who is decidedly more right wing than I am. He supported Brexit, and views liberal pc culture as one of the biggest problems in British society. My uncle is a highly intelligent man, a professor, lecturer, and columnist who is routinely invited onto news shows to do battle with lefties.  I am not as emotionally invested...

MEMBERS ONLY: Trump-Russia Deniers Owe Us An Apology

Posted in Members Only, Politics

Wednesday, December 12, was another historic day in the ongoing disintegration of both the Trump presidency and the Trump brand, with Trump the man-baby moving ever closer to impeachment and ignominy. We learned that Donald Trump’s personal lawyer and bag-man, Michael Cohen, will likely spend the next three years in a federal prison. It’s also a possibility that the sentence will be reduced if Cohen decides to fully cooperate...

MEMBERS ONLY: Tucker Carlson Is Spreading Grotesque Lies To Cover Trump’s Crimes

Posted in Members Only, Politics

Perhaps feeling the backlash from his little outburst against president Trump, Tucker Carlson is back to doing what he does best: shilling for the president and protecting him from the liberal “Deep State”.   In a truly ludicrous segment on his show last night, Carlson claimed that despite Federal prosecutors explicitly stating that the president has committed a crime, Trump is in fact the victim of extortion and a liberal plot...
