  • Leninism: The Highest Stage of Progressivism

    As the talk of socialism becomes more widespread on the Left, particularly within Democratic party politics, and as anger at President Trump boils over, the advocacy of political scientists will become even clearer: first, Progressivism, then socialism, and ultimately, Leninism.... A contrary example both of the theory and practice of politics, because its focus is on advancing the principles of the Declaration of Independence, are the panels and scholarship sponsored by the Claremont Institute—recently honored at the White House with the National Humanities Medal. So Claremont has its work cut out for it. How far will the Left take political...

    A Sistah Soulja moment this was not. Obviously seeing a train wreck in the Democrats' future, as well as stuck endorsing it whatever it might be, President Obama cautioned Democrats to not try to tear down society in revolutionary fervor, because America's just not ready for it. Here Obama goes in this RealClearPolitics video here. And according to the transcript from RealClearPolitics: FORMER PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: My point is that even as we push the envelope and we are bold in our vision, we also have to be rooted in reality and the fact that voters, including Democratic voters and...

    The Virginia restaurant owner who kicked Sarah Huckabee Sanders out of her restaurant last year is defending the Chicago cocktail bar server who spat in Eric Trump's face last week, saying politicians involved in 'spreading hate' should consider dining at home. Stephanie Wilkinson made headlines last year when she booted Sanders out of her restaurant the Red Hen in Lexington, Virginia. Now she's backing the unnamed server at the upscale Chicago bar The Aviary who spat in Eric Trump's face as he walked in on Tuesday night and was briefly detained by Secret Service agents. Stephanie Wilkinson, the owner of...
  • Buttigieg takes on Trump, pitches four new tax hikes in Fox News Town Hall

    Insurgent Democrat presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg acknowledged at the Fox News town hall in Claremont, New Hampshire Sunday evening that he needs to do more to appeal to "black and brown" voters, even as he confidently parried a series of policy questions -- and, on several occasions, went directly after President Trump. Buttigieg argued that minority voters are "skeptical of people who seem to come out of nowhere," after moderator Chris Wallace noted that he was polling at one-percent support among nonwhite primary voters according to a recent Fox News poll. On fiscal policy, Buttigieg pushed for four distinct tax...

    Revelations that Hunter Biden and Aleksander Kwasniewski serve on the board of a company controlled by a Yanukovych ally raise serious conflict of interest questions for Western countries’ Ukraine policy. DONETSK, Ukraine — U.S. Vice President Joe Biden’s youngest son has joined the board of a gas company owned by an ally of Ukraine’s fugitive ex-president Viktor Yanukovych and a key European interlocutor with Kiev who was previously president of Poland. The move raises questions about a potential conflict of interest for Joe Biden, who was the White House’s main interlocutor with Yanukovych while the latter was president and has...

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (aka AOC, Occasional Cortex, and Flashdunce) paid a fake visit to Moscow where she visited Lenin's Tomb.  A brief conversation ensued: Alexandria: Lenny!  It's your great grand-daughter, Alexandria!  Glad to finally meet you! Boy are you a sight for sore eyes.  How long has it been?  1924?  Why that would be 95 years! You're looking mighty chipper there, Lenny. Hey, Cousin Bernie and Jane send their best.  Remember how they visited you a few decades back when they honeymooned in Moscow? All the history department profs at BU (Bolshevik University) thought you were so cool.  You were...

(Brian Snyder/Reuters) Elizabeth Warren is not proposing a tax; she’s proposing asset forfeiture.History is very short, if you look at it the right way. The American Revolution seems like it was a very long time ago, but looked at with the right kind of eyes, it was the day before yesterday: The revolution of Washington and Jefferson inspired the French Revolution, which unhappily perverted the classical-liberal principles of the American Founders and created instead an ersatz religion purporting to be a cult of pure reason —...

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez sat with Anderson Cooper for an upcoming 60 Minutes interview set to air this Sunday, a portion of which has been released as a promotion. In the released segment, Ocasio-Cortez reveals how exactly she suggests paying for the environmental agenda known as the “Green New Deal” — with remarkably higher tax rates for the super wealthy. Ocasio-Cortez suggests in the clip that in her esteem, people should be doing more to pay their...

    Okay, I don't see anyone else starting it so I'm starting this New York Primary Election Discussion Thread. The big election of interest in this primary is Menshevik Cuomo vs Bolshevik Nixon for governor in the Democrat party. The latest poll gave the Menshevik 40 points over the Bolshevik but I think it will be much closer. Also I think this race will be the prelude for the almost inevitable split of the Democrats permanently into their Bolshevik and Menshevik factions. The polls close at 9 PM. And if their are other races you want to comment on, have at...

    The Claremont Review of Books (via Mollie Hemingway twitter) ^ | August 1, 2018 | Mark Bauerlein (Essayist/reviewer)
    In 1987, not long after David Horowitz had completed his transition from ’60s radical to ’80s conservative, he received a letter from an ex-comrade. They’d just had a political argument over the phone, and she wanted to close the conversation with a summary of his renunciation of the hard Left. They had both been Red Diaper babies, classmates at the Sunnyside Progressive School, and children of members of a Communist enclave in Queens. Now, her companion of the barricades had decided to back “the vile policies of Ronald Reagan.” Why? She spends one paragraph clarifying her own position relative to...

    A Patriot Prayer rally in Portland, Oregon has culminated in a police charge on counterprotesters, as a demonstration once again brought disorder and violence to the downtown area. Two hours into the scheduled protest, police moved towards leftwing counterprotesters with batons drawn, and used dozens of “flash bang” stun grenades and rounds containing pepper spray. As they moved on the counterprotest, Patriot Prayer marchers chanted “lock them up, lock them up”. Portland police sent hundreds of officers in riot gear to the rally, and for most of the day they kept Patriot Prayer, led by Republican US Senate candidate Joey...

    With the appalling news of the past few weeks of mobs attempting to harass and intimidate President Trump’s female Cabinet members and staff, the inclination is to believe that this remarkable behavior, so antithetical to American values, is the result of a lack of leadership in the Democratic Party. Yet, the organized nature of the attacks, combined with liberal political and legacy media rhetoric, makes clear this is not some sort of organic turn of events. Having come from the left, I can tell you everything liberals do is organized around the principle of personalizing, punishing and polarizing; it’s the...

    WARSAW, POLAND — When the centenary of the Bolshevik revolution falls this autumn, Christian communities across the former Soviet Union will commemorate the persecutions it unleashed upon them. But they'll also recall the religious meditations born in the country's prisons and labor camps, some of which deserve to rank with the best in Christian history. "Soviet-era sufferings affected not just the churches but the whole of society, atheists included," said Msgr. Igor Kovalevsky, secretary-general of Russia's Catholic Bishops' Conference. "Secular writers like Alexander Solzhenitsyn and Nadhezda Mandelstam may have become the most famous. But themes of witness and martyrdom also...

    The communists in the Antifa crowd are planning to begin a revolution in America on Saturday, November 4 — almost exactly 100 years after the Bolshevik Revolution that took Russia out of the frying pan of Tsarist rule and into the fire of communist totalitarianism. While some see Antifa activists as the modern heroes of anti-Fascism — fighting against racism, sexism, and a litany of other “isms” — and others see them merely as the snowflake crowd of spoiled brats demanding free everything, the reality is that Antifa is one tool in the communists' toolbox to bring America to her...

    “Please, you cannot be more restrictive than the Church itself or more papists than the Pope: open the doors, do not do asses on Christian perfection, because by doing so you are promoting a hypocritical attitude.” Amid applause, Pope Francis addressed the International Catholic Action Federation (Fiac), which he received on the eve of his trip to Egypt, and recommended its leaders “not to “clericalize” the laity, to be more outgoing and willing to sacrifice, aware, he warned that this could “cause you some problems because by doing so, more people will want to join the organization even though they...

    MOSCOW (AP) - Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday criticized Soviet founder Vladimir Lenin, accusing him of placing a "time bomb" under the state, and sharply denouncing brutal repressions by the Bolshevik government. The harsh criticism of Lenin, who is still revered by communists and many others in Russia, is unusual for Putin, who in the past carefully weighed his comments about the nation's history to avoid alienating some voters. At the same time, he signaled that the government has no intention of taking Lenin's body out of his Red Square tomb, warning against "any steps that would divide the...

    "Dalton Trumbo was a socialist, but he loved being rich." So says Bryan Cranston, who stars in "Trumbo," out this week, and plays the screenwriter who went to prison with the Hollywood Ten in the time of Harry Truman. Actually, Trumbo was not a socialist. Bernie Sanders is a socialist. Trumbo was a Stalinist, a hard-core Communist when the Communist Party USA was run from Moscow by the Comintern, agents of the greatest mass murderer of the 20th century.
