Trump’s Red Line

Trump’s UN ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley, did the unthinkable for those amongst us who lean towards objectivity. She instituted a policy of emotional persuasion rather than rational thought.

A Comment: Based-Stickman and the Leftist Bullies

People have a right to question exactly why a basement dwelling dweeb from the city of Sydney Australia has such a vested interest in the real-life Captain America figure known as “Based-Stickman” And no, the answer isn’t trolling, nor is it boredom. It’s what our boy Based Stickman represents. The left, wherever you go, are … Continued

Culture Wars in the Era of Trump

Andrew Breitbart once proclaimed that “politics is downstream from culture“. The premise of his quote rests upon the observations of many before him, especially those of Marxist persuasion. Breitbart was conspicuously conservative but this simple axiom was not lost on him. The turbulent identity politics promulgated under Obama’s administration set America alight with race riots. … Continued

An Outlook into 2017

Ceteris Paribus within the current political context is practically a moot concept. The seismic changes in 2016 will continue sending after shocks well into 2017 and beyond.

A Return to Classical Marxism

(image – http://www.cpusa.org/)  This article is in response to Waleed Aly’s piece entitled; “US election 2016: It’s not about racism or sexism, it’s about class warfare.” Now look, I don’t want to call Waleed a liar, but the majority of the team here at The Common Discourse, called the Trump victory before he even claimed the Republican nomination. … Continued

In the ever increasing and ever so heart strung world of victim hood, the gender pay gap myth continually gets bandied about as some kind of evidence of a global male conspiracy to suppress women at all costs. Let’s take the latest addition to ANZ’s advertising campaigns as an example. ‘What pulls at the heart … Continued

Life Is Full Of Soros…

…so, is that an indictment on the oppressed and easily fooled animals of the ‘communal’ herd? Or is it fair play in a game of global diplomacy by the technocrats and their political wizardry? ‘All is fair in love and war’. The succubus sits atop casting dream spells upon the sleeping mass. If we pull … Continued
