It’s not mean to say ‘healthcare is not a right’

From some of the reactions on Twitter, one would think the newly crowned Miss USA Kara McCullough had committed some sort of speech crime. In the question and answer portion of the Miss USA content, one of the hosts asked, “Do you think affordable health care for all U.S. citizens is a right or a privilege and […]

Fred Upton, unlike niece Kate Upton, might not be perfect

Rep. Fred Upton, the chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, should resign immediately. For conservatives and libertarians, he couldn’t be further from perfect — unlike his niece, Kate Upton. Fred Upton, a Republican, announced yesterday that he wouldn’t support the Obamacare repeal and replacement compromise plan because it’s too conservative. His website says, “I support […]

Big Sis, Stop funding illegals over free speech — or resign

During the last few weeks, we’ve noticed two storylines emerging separately out of the University of California system, headed by former Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano (known by critics as ‘Big Sis‘). The first was an increase in funding and focus for “undocumented” students, culminating in a taxpayer-funded trip for Napolitano to Mexico. From our […]

Yes, Glenn Beck is running a “smear campaign” on Tomi Lahren

Inside baseball is pretty lame, especially conservative inside baseball on Twitter. The latest conservative Twitter carfuffle happened because employees from The Blaze and their close friends took offense at our headline, “Glenn Beck countersues Tomi Lahren, starts smear campaign.” Unsurprisingly, friends and allies of Glenn Beck did not like the characterization that his comments and the contents of […]

Yes, taxation can be legalized theft — especially for millennials

Tax Day is tomorrow. All Americans should calculate how much of their income is going to the government — federal, state, and local — and ask themselves: am I willingly giving up this money? When a robber takes your property, this is classified as theft. Many libertarians argue that taxation is legalized theft, theft by […]

We endorse ‘Millennial’ Maxine Waters to run for president in 2020

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) has become a darling of the Left. She’s raked everyone over the coals from Donald Trump to Bill O’Reilly. And now, the website Salon believes that Waters should be president. Salon’s Editor-in-chief D. Watkins offered five reasons why Waters would be a great president from her going after Republicans to being […]

IWF defends giving Mike Pence “Working for Women” Award

When Playboy, Teen Vogue, New York Magazine, Mic, Vice, Raw Story, and Jezebel all attack you — you must be doing something right. Left-wing magazines loved that Chelsea Clinton is a “Lifetime Impact” honoree for doing literally nothing. However, they are piling on the Independent Women’s Forum (IWF) for giving Vice President Mike Pence the […]

How Donald Trump could become the first woman president

Professors recently ran an interesting test on the 2016 presidential debates: What if Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump swapped genders? How would audiences react? In their test, NYU Steinhardt clinical associate professor Joe Salvatore said, “One audience member described the Trump message as she was able to hear it as hummable lyrics, while Clinton may have […]

Trump’s best speech: Tonight he became president

Who would have guessed one year ago today that Donald Trump would be delivering an address to Congress? Who would have guess that both sides of the aisle would stand and applaud multiple times? Tonight may have been the turning point for Donald Trump the politician. This was the first time were he looked, sounded, […]

Liberal logic: Devos’ praise of HBCUs is like celebrating Jim Crow

Did you know that mainstream liberals think Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) are a “Jim Crow education system”? That’s right, HBCUs are now an enemy of the Left. Why? Because President Donald Trump and Education Secretary Betsy Devos are about to help them out significantly with an Executive Order, and Democrats need a way […]

Spend $54 billion more on defense? Cut the $125 billion in waste first

Foreign policy hawks led the #NeverTrump movement. They led the opposition to Donald Trump’s rise to the Republican nomination. Many writers from our brother publication, the Weekly Standard, led the charge on this front. Trump ran as a noninterventionist who didn’t want us to be the world’s policeman. Yet, somehow, President Trump’s first budget is a neocon […]

Dear Oscars: Remember Lady Gaga’s Super Bowl performance

When will Hollywood liberals learn that most of America doesn’t want to hear about politics from you? Well, to be fair, one performer proved she learned. Lady Gaga showed she knew that, and we hope she teaches the grace she expressed during the Super Bowl 51 Halftime Show to the Hollywood elites gathering tonight for […]

We were wrong about Lady Gaga. And, maybe Gaga set us up [VIDEO]

When political commentators and the media get it wrong, they should admit it. One of our writers, at our behest, wrote, “For those of you that are looking forward to enjoying the 51st Super Bowl without a political agenda, forget it. Social justice liberals refuse to let any truly neutral pastime go untouched.” And continued, […]

The U.N. — like the Galactic Senate — must be dissolved [VIDEO]

“It’s a lot like the Star Wars Galactic Republic, right? — where it’s a bunch of ‘greedy, squabbling delegates’ and nothing gets done,” said Red Alert Politics Editor Ron Meyer this morning on Fox News’ Fox and Friends. The United Nations, similar to the Galactic Senate in Star Wars, is far too big and far too bureaucratic […]

Stop blaming 2016 for everything: You’re neither funny nor original

Everyone on social media — especially Facebook — needs to stop blaming 2016 every time something bad happens, or someone dies. It’s not original. Everyone is doing it. It’s annoying. In our final days of 2016, let’s resolve to get creative and stop cluttering each other’s news feeds with “Damn you, 2016! You had to […]

How to avoid Trump talk at Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is that special holiday every year where all Americans reflect on why they’re grateful. Coming out of a presidential election year, however, means that political fights may rear their ugly head somewhere between the mash potatoes and the turkey. Here’s some useful advice for stopping yourself and your Clinton-loving family members from ruining Thanksgiving. […]

Hamilton Hypocrites: Cast blasts Pence (who was in the audience) [VIDEO]

One would think it would be an honor to perform for a popular governor who is the Vice President-elect. It should be viewed as a deep compliment that one of the most powerful people in the world wanted to take their family to your show. But alas, liberals on Broadway used Vice President-elect Mike Pence’s […]

Hillary made excuses for Bill; GOP shouldn’t do the same for Trump

Hillary Clinton made excuses for Bill Clinton when women accused Bill Clinton of sexual wrongdoing — including sexual assault and rape. Further, she and the Clinton team used the media to smear Bill Clinton’s accusers. Red Alert’s Ryan Girdusky documented the 20+ times this happened. Defending Bill Clinton’s actions is objectively worse than the words said […]
