  1. I love the final point, "what sort of people do you want around when the money runs out?". I'm a little paranoid, so I ask myself a similar question "What sort of people do you want around when the lights go out?". If we got hit by an EMP that knocked out all our technology tomorrow, there are those in our society who would consider it the end of days, and perhaps rightly so. Some are taught in this situation to kneel before God and repent and pray for forgiveness. Others are taught to take up arms and engage in the final holy war and basically run around killing people. We shouldn't choose our friends based on how they act when everything is perfect, but how they'd act if everything went to hell, because it just might.

  2. I think you're a bolshevik controlled opposition Stefan.

    41 And
    that I also have walked contrary unto them, and have brought them into
    the land of their enemies; if then their uncircumcised hearts be
    humbled, and they then accept of the punishment of their iniquity:

    42 Then
    will I remember my covenant with Jacob, and also my covenant with
    Isaac, and also my covenant with Abraham will I remember; and I will
    remember the land.

    43 The
    land also shall be left of them, and shall enjoy her sabbaths, while
    she lieth desolate without them: and they shall accept of the punishment
    of their iniquity: because, even because they despised my judgments,
    and because their soul abhorred my statutes.

    44 And
    yet for all that, when they be in the land of their enemies, I will not
    cast them away, neither will I abhor them, to destroy them utterly, and
    to break my covenant with them: for I am the Lord their God.

    45 But
    I will for their sakes remember the covenant of their ancestors, whom I
    brought forth out of the land of Egypt in the sight of the heathen,
    that I might be their God: I am the Lord.

    46 These are the statutes and judgments and laws, which the Lord made between him and the children of Israel in mount Sinai by the hand of Moses.

  3. JUST BUILD THE WALL TRUMP! Seize the money illegals send back to Mexico to pay for it (like you said you would) and use the Army Engineers to build it (like Anne Coulter has been saying since day 1 of your presidency) this is not a game! This is life and death!

  4. What people neglect to mention is that the actual budget of the wall is estimated between $25 billion to $30 billion. Only about 0.0075% of the $4 trillion annual federal budget. And the estimated running costs, for at least 10 years, is about $28 billion or $2.8 billion a year. (0.0005% of the annual budget).

    Apparently the Democrats don't want to stop spending the federal budget on things like open borders, gun control, free collage, free healthcare, free welfare, free EVERYTHING, upping the minimum wage, raising taxes on the rich, ect., ect.

  5. I didn't know you became a statist!?!? Let me guess, we should stay in Syria too? Lol you can tell yourself logic and reason has brought you to the conclusion that some state is necessary to achieve a stateless society only shows you're indeed a statist.

  6. No, the problem with your new intro and logo is that is doesn't match your character. The background sound and particular dramatics don't match with your character. The font is also too formal which contrasts with the drama. I also don't know what that logo is, is it some kind of big microphone? It's not too obvious and just awkward. Other than that, love you Stef and keep up your good work.

  7. Freedom is rare historically, and free societies came from the cradle of western-European civilisation. Cultures are different according to Thomas Sowell see "Cultures and Conquests". There is nothing racist in saying that freedom (and open markets), responsible for the prosperity of the modern worked, is a western-European cultural innovation and is maintained by European culture. As the demographic shifts away from a European majority, freedom will disappear.

  8. But Steph…I must contend with your point regrading Trump's "all Americans are hurt by illegal migration". Though your point that the DEMS are in fact not hurt by illegals rushing the border may seemingly be true, it's also untrue at the same time. The fact that the DEMS are actively engaged in traitorous acts against their own country puts them into a very different category in my eyes. They are in reality NOT Americans…they have abandoned America and the interests of their constituents and joined forces with the Global cabal. They are now traitors and everything they do in their official capacity is with the intent of hurting America. So, I would argue that they are in fact no longer Americans at this point. Though they may in fact welcome every injury to America, they still are hurt to some degree. Few would argue that the unbridled illegal migration has no negative effect on America, so if they are Americans (which I say they are not) then by default, they are in fact hurt by the damage done to America…despite the fact that they want America injured.

  9. When Trump refers to Democrats wanting a steel barrier instead of a concrete wall, he's saying two things. One, that they want anything they can call "Not actually a wall" Two: exposing that a steel barrier would cost MORE than a concrete wall.

  10. Great video. I didn't see / hear Trump's speech or the Democrats' reply, but I'm kind of depressed. Judging from Stefan Molyneux's analysis of Trump's speech, it sounds like Trump was arguing from the perspective that the Democrats' arguments have validity which is a big fat mistake. I think another problem with Trump's approach is that it sounds like he's worried about winning over people who frankly are predisposed toward the bullshit SJW arguments the Democrats would make, another big fat mistake. Ultimately I'm more impressed with actions versus words when it comes to Trump, but if this speech is any indication then maybe he's been in DC (the Swamp) too long.
