BEST OF #TruthStraightUp: American Greatness

People from all over the world continue to come to America in search of a better life, but why? Because America is known for providing the ordinary guy with an extraordinary life. America has embraced a free market system that allows everyone to prosper, not by making us all equal, but by unleashing our talents […]

Best of #TruthStraightUp: Socialism’s big failure

First, it was the radical Left calling for democratic socialism. Today, the call for socialism has moved into mainstream progressivism. Yet those people advocating for socialism refuse to answer one simple question: Where in the world has socialism ever worked? In a socialist society, it doesn’t matter whether the people thrive, it only matters whether […]

Identity politics is racist ft. Jason Mattera

Identity politics is rooted in the belief that truth is subjective. Liberals reduce a person’s identity down to race, gender, or sexual orientation and favor group status over character. While constantly accusing people and institutions of systemic discrimination and oppression, liberals actually promote racial preferences on college campuses, in government, and in business. Identity politics […]

WATCH: Illinois Professor Tells Class “No Evidence” That America is the Greatest Country in the World

Remember the Illinois Central College professor who threatened to fail a conservative student? He’s back. Following YAF’s exposé, another brave whistleblower came forward with video footage of Troy Daugherty’s recent class lecture, where he spent 15 minutes discussing why America wasn’t the greatest country in the world. Daugherty asserts that President Trump, President George W. […]

Healthcare needs more competition, not less ft. Andy Puzder

To what extent should the government be involved in America’s healthcare system? Some say that the private sector should play a significant role, and others say that the government should be in charge of all aspects. Regardless, the cost of healthcare needs to decline and the quality of healthcare needs to improve. In the history […]

LBJ wasn’t a friend of civil rights ft. Burt Folsom

    The history that the Left tells often isn’t the full story. Progressives praise LBJ for championing civil rights, but the truth is the former KKK member spent his entire career opposing civil rights. At the same time, the Left frames Barry Goldwater as an enemy of civil rights. Goldwater spent his entire life […]

No one has the “right” to kill a baby ft. Bay Buchanan

The lives of innocent children are being ended at an alarming rate by abortion. Too many people are attempting to make the case that an unborn baby is not a life, but it is. Science proves time and again that babies in the womb are unique human beings. Feminists like to suggest that women have […]

The Second Amendment isn’t just for muskets ft. Dana Loesch

One of the most common anti-gun arguments is that the founders couldn’t have conceived of “weapons of war” being available to the general population when they wrote the Second Amendment. This argument is absurd. America won the war of independence because average, everyday Americans had weapons of war, which were muskets at the time. The […]

Sorry, socialism will never work ft. Liz Wheeler

In the history of the world, where has socialism ever ended in anything other than death, destruction, and oppression? People in the Soviet Union waited in line for hours for a single loaf of bread. They ate their own shoes to prevent starvation from setting in. People in Cuba have to bring their own light […]

Rest in Peace Herman Cain

YAF is deeply saddened to learn of Herman Cain’s passing this morning. He inspired many YAF student audiences across the country with his energetic presentations outlining the path to success in America. Countless young Americans were encouraged by his living example of what free people in a free market can accomplish. Our thoughts are with […]

George Washington University Caves to Leftists, Moves to Rename Colonial Moniker

The Board of Trustees at The George Washington University has caved to far-left student activists, approving a “Special Committee” to rename the school’s beloved colonial moniker. In a letter sent to students, alumni, and faculty on Monday, GW’s President Thomas LeBlanc noted “We are now working to form a diverse and representative group of GW […]

Free Speech Warriors: An Interview w/ Senator Ted Cruz and Michael Knowles

This week, I had the pleasure of being joined by two great freedom fighters, Senator Ted Cruz and Michael Knowles. We talked about the Chinese Communist Party’s recent sanctions of Senator Cruz, Bari Weiss’ scorching resignation letter, what can be done to put an end to lawless mobs, and why their podcast—Verdict—is a must-listen. Enjoy […]

The leftist media spreads #FakeNews ft. Kara Bell

#FakeNews is everywhere. Facebook, Twitter, and the mainstream media are so biased toward the Left that conservatives can’t get a word in. For example, does the average person know that the U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team members get paid a much larger share of the revenue they bring in than the men? Most people have […]

California Profs-lacking grasp on reality

Yesterday, on the campus of California State University Los Angeles, protesters staged a demonstration outside an “open forum” with Chancellor Timothy White. What occurred, however, wasn’t much of an open forum at all.  Check out the embedded video below, taken by CSULA Young Americans for Freedom Chapter Chair Mark Kahanding. Protesters, organized by the California […]
