  • Everything You Need To Know About The RAISE Immigration Act Without Reading It

    Few issues so fixate and divide our nation of immigrants as much as how we should govern immigration. This has been especially true since the recent presidential campaign, when immigration debates loomed large.While the Trump administration has enacted various immigration-related policies by executive orders, Republicans have finally introduced an actual piece of legislation to represent their views. The “Reforming American Immigration for a Strong Economy Act” (RAISE Act henceforth) will undoubtedly be in the news in upcoming days and weeks, so it behooves the careful conservative media consumer to know what’s in the bill and what it means.First, the...
  • We Are Watching A Slow-Motion Coup D’etat

    This coup d’etat is not only about President Trump. It represents not the rule of one man or even many, but by the multitude of our elites. It’s nearly incontrovertible that a slow-motion coup d’etat is now taking place. Since November 9, 2016, forces within the U.S. government, media, and partisan opposition have aligned to overthrow the Electoral College winner, Donald Trump. To achieve this they have undermined the institutions of the Fourth Estate, the bureaucratic apparatus of the U.S. government, and the very nature of a contentious yet affable two-party political system. Unlike the coup d’etat that sees a...

    Opposition to the National Bank Main article: Second Bank of the United States Democratic cartoon shows Jackson fighting the monster Bank. "The Bank," Jackson told Martin Van Buren, "is trying to kill me, but I will kill it!"The Second Bank of the United States was authorized for a twenty year period during James Madison's tenure in 1816. As President, Jackson worked to rescind the bank's federal charter. In Jackson's veto message (written by George Bancroft), the bank needed to be abolished because: It concentrated the nation's financial strength in a single institution. It exposed the government to control by foreign...

    The difference between Donald Trump and Barack Obama amounts only to whatever difference may exist between each emperor’s set of cronies.The Obama years have brought America to the brink of transformation from constitutional republic into an empire ruled by secret deals promulgated by edicts. Civics classes used to teach: “Congress makes the laws, the president carries them out, judges decide controversies, and we citizens may be penalized only by a jury of our peers.” Nobody believes that anymore, because no part of it has been true for a long time. Barack Obama stopped pretending that it is. During the twentieth...
  • Who Are Donald Trump’s Supporters?

    The Federalist ^ | August 26, 2015 | Robert Tracinski
    The big, existential question for Republicans right now is: who are Donald Trump’s supporters? It matters because this will determine the future, and the future prospects, of the party. I heartily agree with Ben Domenech, whose article on this just made it harder for me to fulfill my obligations to his publication, by pre-empting most of what I was planning to write about Trump for The Federalist. Ben argues that Trumpism would turn the Republicans from a “classically liberal right” to a European-style nationalist party that is “xenophobic, anti-capitalist, vaguely militarist, pro-state, and consistently anti-Semitic. If you criticize Donald Trump,...
  • Are Republicans For Freedom Or White Identity Politics?

    The Federalist ^ | August 21, 2015 | Ben Domenech, Publisher
    Donald Trump could transform the Republican Party into a coalition focused on white identity politics. We've seen this in Europe, and it's bad. Now that we have had time to observe the Donald Trump phenomenon, there is enough evidence to make a clear assessment of what it represents. The rise of Trump is an epic expression of frustration with the American political system, and it is a natural outgrowth of frustrations with America’s changing demographics; the hollowing out of white working class values and culture, as Charles Murray has documented extensively; and what life is like when governed by...

    I feel it’s necessary to preface this article by stating that I am not a brony. I’ve met a couple, and I don’t exactly…get it. It’s like relishing the days when you had easy access to a playground butt-kicking. That said, after seeing the message the show carries, I might join them now. There’s an inherent cowardice within the mainstream media that stops writers from venturing anywhere into territory that contradicts leftist narratives. While there might be some bravery, any divergence into territory that might run contradictory to ideals the leftist cause célèbre puts forth ends with a flurry of...

    Accuracy in Academia ^ | October 15, 2014 | David Corbin and Matthew Parks
    Note: This is the first in a series of essays examining the prospects for electing a republican president in 2016 and ultimately reining in the modern imperial presidency through the lens of Alexander Hamilton’s Federalist essays on the executive branch. It is a truth universally acknowledged that a politician making Iowa or New Hampshire his second home must be in want of the presidency. We’ve got more than a few of those these days and can expect the 2016 presidential campaign to begin in earnest minutes after the mid-term elections conclude. Expect the Big Announcement from Hillary some time “around”...

    There is “no evidence of criminal wrongdoing,” the Internal Revenue Service assured Americans during an internal investigation of the agency’s targeting of conservative groups. Few will find comfort in those words, and understandably so. Last week, while seeking to reassure Americans he has seen no evidence of a crime, IRS Commissioner John Koskinen acknowledged he had not even bothered to review any of the applicable laws. It seems like only yesterday that President Obama called the scandal “inexcusable” and pledged to work “hand in hand with Congress to get this thing fixed.” More recently, though, he dismissed it as a...

    It is a cliché to speak of “spineless Republicans”-google spineless republicans and you will see. They talk “conservative” when they campaign; but once in office, they go along with the progressive agenda.That agenda is to grow the federal government until it controls every aspect of our lives. Why don’t they oppose the progressive agenda? Rush Limbaugh says they don’t oppose it because they want to be invited to the right parties and praised in the liberal media. But on this, our Rush is wrong. Rush is a man of Principles; but he doesn’t understand the Constitution.So he doesn’t see that...

    The Anti-Federalists were those that opposed the ratification of the United States Constitution by their respective State Ratifying Conventions. "Federal Farmer," whose identity is unknown, though scholars have put forward Richard Henry Lee and Melancton Smith as possibilities, wrote essays that were among the more important documents of the constitutional ratification debate. He warned in 1788 in Federal Farmer No. 15 that because "particular circumstances exist at this time to increase our inattention to limiting properly the judicial powers, we may fairly conclude, we are more in danger of sowing the seeds of arbitrary government in this department [of the...

    The Federalist Society, a student organization at the School of Law, is hosting a lecture by the Honorable James L. Buckley at 3 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 10, in the Grand Courtroom in the School of Law Center. In his lecture, "Overloading the Federal Horse," Buckley will discuss what he sees as the disastrous consequences for law and policy caused by the federal government's abandonment of concepts of federalism. His particular focus will be on the consequences for good law-making in Congress. Buckley served as a U.S. senator from New York State from 1970 to 1977. He had many legislative...

    Hamilton Returns to TaxationAfter Brutus’ attack, Hamilton put Federalist #29 back in his desk drawer, put quill pen to hemp paper, and wrote the first of seven essays to refute his old colleague. The issue of defense could wait a few weeks; the issue of taxation could not. Hamilton starts by laying the foundation of his case that the method of taxation available to the federal government was insufficient not only to its present needs but to the possibility of future war.

    Federalist 3 is a continuation of the theme John Jay started in Federalist 2. In today’s read, Jay continues to speak to a United States and their combined power, vs separate sovereign nations. This time we are talking about national security. Jay points out that there are strength in numbers, and a strong United States would, in itself, would deter many actions and invasions. Remember, at the time America was surrounded by foreign territories.

    Madison Enters the FrayThe tone of the argument changes. Hamilton is the brilliant raconteur and legal thinker, and Madison is the earnest professor of history. After Shays’ Rebellion, Madison sat down and wrote a scholarly paper titled “Vices of the Political System of the United States”, known by historians today as “Madison’s Vices”, which would have prompted a giggle from the man himself. James Madison was a man of abstemious habits who did not smoke and drank only in moderation with meals. If one wanted a dinner guest who could charm a room with his repartee and sing old songs...
