There is no denying that 2018 has been one of the most interesting and tumultuous years for politics in recent history: an uprising against globalism, unprecedented public mistrust of the legacy media, and political vitriol at a level that has even the most jaded news hounds taken aback, and all are part of Liberty Nation’s Top 10 stories this year. For Liberty Nation, our pursuit of journalistic excellence – that is, high-quality writing coupled with a portrayal of the facts with the truth as our guide – has led us down some pretty strange and dark paths. Following leads that have challenged us on a personal level, we have tried our very best to give LN readers open and honest coverage, with a splash of style.
The following articles are Liberty Nation’s ten most popular articles of 2018. Some had a huge readership, others were exclusive to LN, or were breaking news that our team was the first to report. We hope you enjoy this selection, and we look forward to hitting the ground running in 2019.
Jordan Peterson: Carry Your Cross
By Onar Åm
How Jordan Peterson is reinvigorating Christianity for the political left.
The usual suspects formulaically call him “divisive,” “hateful,” and “racist.” The opposite is the case. He has managed the impossible feat of uniting people across genders, races, religions, and politics.
Most notably, Peterson has created a new wave of interest in Christianity. Atheists are flocking to his lectures to hear about the psychological significance of the biblical stories, and Christians – including pastors and theologians – are doing the same to learn about the evolutionary underpinnings of morality and divinity.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg: Time’s Up
By Joe Schaeffer
Decrepit Ruth Bader Ginsburg shows just how out of touch public officials are.
Supreme Court justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s shocking appearance at a George Washington University Law School forum on September 12 was a sad and infuriating display of just what little regard our public officials have for the American people today.
Frail, withered, and barely sensate at times, Ginsburg serves as a tottering, doddering monument for term limits to remove power-addicted occupants of the D.C. Swamp from their cobwebbed gilded seats of – ha! – “public service.” Read More.
The Drudge Report: Statistics Don’t Lie
By Leesa K. Donner
Is the Drudge Report really conservative?
Like a shot through the heart of the establishment, Matt Drudge changed the world on January 17, 1998, when he let anyone with a pulse know that Newsweek magazine had and then killed a story about a White House intern having sex with the president.
And yet The Drudge Report is Numero Uno for referring traffic primarily to the rogue’s gallery of narrative-driven left-wing media outlets like CNN, the New York Times, and The Washington Post. As a conservative who’s now well versed in the power and money that traffic gives these outlets, one must ask; What’s up with that? Read More.
CA Senate Votes to Strip Young Adults of the Right to Bear Arms
By James Fite
California’s young adults are losing the right to bear arms.
This may come as a surprise to some, but California is finally following Vermont in raising the gun purchasing age to 21. That the Golden State is moving forward with such an anti-Second Amendment law, of course, should surprise no one. The shocker is that Vermont beat them to it.
As previously reported on Liberty Nation, Vermont Governor Phil Scott – a Republican who seems to have been confused by the letters R and D and chose the wrong one – signed into law three gun control bills. One of them raised the legal purchase age of rifles and shotguns to 21. Read More.
Coordinated Effort to Hijack Presidential Election Exposed
By Joe Schaeffer
James Baker revelations further expose FBI, Democrats as real colluders.
A top Democratic National Committee lawyer was feeding former FBI General Counsel James Baker information in 2016. The news is more than just another nail in the coffin of the flailing Trump-Russia probe, it is fresh confirmation of a shocking and unprecedented joint effort by the DNC and hostile Deep State forces to use federal power to subvert the will of the people.
Baker, who had close ties to former FBI director James Comey, was provided information on alleged “Russian hacking” by flagrantly partisan DNC lawyer Michael Sussmann, Fox News reported. Sussmann’s law firm, Perkins Coie, played a key role in the production of the infamous and discredited Trump Dossier put together by former British intelligence agent Christopher Steele. Fusion GPS, an opposition research firm hired by Hillary Clinton’s campaign, funded Steele’s sleazy dossier. Read More.
The Clinton House of Cards Begins to Topple
By Sarah Cowgill
What’s behind the FBI’s decision to push on with the Clinton investigation?
Amid calls from President Donald Trump and Congressional Republicans, the heat is back on the FBI investigation into the Clinton Foundation pay-to-play politics scandal that has lain semi-dormant since 2016. The probe dates to when Hillary Clinton served as Secretary of State (2009-2013) in the Obama administration.
Most federal felonies have a statute of limitations shelf life of five years, and 2018 is fast approaching the deadline for prosecution of wrongdoing. Read More.
Kavanaugh Investigation Backfires on Accusers and Their Democrat Handlers
By Graham J. Noble
Sometimes, you should be careful what you wish for.
Everyone, at some point, has heard the old warning “be careful what you wish for,” or has used it themselves when they or others around them got more than they bargained for. Senate Republicans must have told their Democratic counterparts the very same thing over the weekend that followed the Brett Kavanaugh sex assault hearing.
Democrats wanted the confirmation process delayed and, of course, they used the excuse that the completely uncorroborated allegations made against Judge Kavanaugh should be more thoroughly looked into before the Senate votes. They may come to regret being granted that request – as the FBI digs into this sordid affair – since it is their own scheming that will now be exposed to the nation. Read More.
London Mayor Tries to Humiliate Trump – Major Backfire
By Mark Angelides
A 20ft Trump blimp will fly over London as the leftists try to humiliate their own nation.
The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, has ramped up his war of words with Donald Trump in anticipation of the president’s historic visit to the U.K. on July 13th. Not content with expressing his own animosity, he has decided to humiliate the nation by allowing a hideous “angry Trump baby” blimp to be flown over Parliament Square whilst the visit takes place.
The British people are cringing at what many see as little more than petty rudeness on behalf of the mayor directed at the leader of their greatest ally. Read More.
The Fuss Over Red Pill Black & Social Autopsy
By Jeff Charles
Back by popular demand. Despite the fact that this article was written in 2017 it crested Liberty Nation’s top 10 in 2018 again!
Is this just more hate against black conservatives?
So why is YouTube personality Candace Owens, AKA Red Pill Black, getting so much hate lately?
The liberal-turned-conservative has made waves over the past few months with her videos slamming social justice warriors, the media, and left in general. Her tell-it-like-it-is style and sarcastic wit have made fans out of many conservatives. However, it seems that now, people on both the left and the right are attacking her.
For those who aren’t “in the know,” Candace Owens is a popular YouTube personality and entrepreneur. She also happens to be an outspoken black conservative. Her YouTube channel features several videos in which she calls out the left and discusses the issues of the day. Read More.
Feds Lay Down the Law on Antifa Protests
By Sarah Cowgill
ICE stops Antifa protests with strong warning.
After weeks of occupying the Oregon Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) building, the domestic terrorists of the Portland chapter of Antifa are beginning to realize the United States federal government is a mighty foe when provoked by violent and punkish behavior.
After a week of effectively ceasing all manner of business at ICE offices by obstructing access into the building, Antifa campers received flyers stating:
“Individuals who continue to obstruct the entrance of this federal facility will be subject to arrest and prosecution in federal court. It is unlawful under federal law to obstruct the entrances, foyers, lobbies, corridors, offices and/or parking lots of federal facilities.”
It was both a mildly pleasant rebuke of the unwashed and potentially smelly anarchists and an ominous warning that there will be a price to pay if the law is continually and flagrantly violated. Read More.
