    Why aren't conservatives clamoring for Keith Ellisaon to resign?? His head should be on a platter!! REMEMBER Saul Alinsky’s Rules from Rules for Radicals Saul Alinsky describes 24 rules in Rules for Radicals. Of those 24 rules, 13 are rules of “power tactics”: 1. “Power is not only what you have but what the enemy thinks you have.” 2. “Never go outside the experience of your people.” 3. “Wherever possible go outside of the experience of the enemy.” 4. “Make the enemy live up to their own book of rules.” 5. “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.” 6. “A good...
  • Reading Orwell's Road to Wigan Pier. It Explains Today's Leftist Fascism Prescient

    08/11/2018 5:35:15 AM PDT · by Chickensoup · 104 replies
    Just finished The Road to Wigan Pier a book Orwell wrote about leftism and fascism during the 30's in Great Britan. Chilton Williamson from CHRONICLES had recommended it in the magazine's What the Editor's are Reading section. Good selection. This is a discussion of class, industrialization, and Orwell's perspective of what happens when humans are treated as disposable. Interestingly, during the industrialization of Great Britain, there were many thrown out of work and lots of talk, as there is today about the dole (today read guaranteed income) being the way to allow people to be "free." Many other parallels with...

    Campus Antifa Network ^ | 08.03.18 | chickensoup
    http://campusantifascistnetwork.com/ This is the enemy of the United States and they are embedded on college campuses. They are the enforcer arm of the Leftist Fascists and they are ready to dismantle our country. They are dangerous. They are true believers. There is no reasoning with them. They have no ability to have insight into their own behaviors.

    I have been watching and listening to President Trump and the MSM, the politicians, the leftist pundits, the murky middle pundits and everyone else who has been weighing in an opinion on what the President should do or should have done regarding NATO, the countries he has visited, and with President Putin. President Trump is doing great and I am proud of him and his ability to speak plainly, truthfully, and break down barriers of entitlement. I am also pleased that he is able to transcend ideology and reach across to Russia and other countries to help solidify peace and...

    Tech PING! CAR PING! The 2015 JEEP Sahara UCONNECT says NO MAPS! HELP? The GPS works, there are NO MAPS AVAILABLE and there is not much on this, even at the Jeep sites that I have been able to ferret out. I spoke to the UCONNCET people and they only update the maps. Everyone shakes their heads and says I dunno. The dealership says they never heard of such an issue. Surely there must be a software fix somewhere?? Even if the map files are corrupted? Any car techs out there??

    American Spectator ^ | 05.31.18 | Melissa Mackenzie
    ...The Left has never been called to account for the atrocities done in the extreme of their name: Marxism. As Peterson points out, professors can, with impunity, profess their love for Marxism. Why are Nazis (rightly) labeled anathema but communists march proudly, teach in state schools, and are never called to account for the evil done in their name? When the “oppressed” become the oppressors, why do the “compassionate” look the other way and why are they allowed to? Dave Rubin said something at the beginning of the talk as a throwaway line that grabbed my attention. He said, “There...

    Freedom Sledder .com ^ | April 4, 2018 | David Vincent Gilbert
    How do civil wars happen? Two or more sides disagree on who runs the country. And they can’t settle the question through elections because they don’t even agree that elections are how you decide who’s in charge. That’s the basic issue here. Who decides who runs the country? When you hate each other but accept the election results, you have a country. When you stop accepting election results, you have a countdown to a civil war. The Mueller investigation is about removing President Trump from office and overturning the results of an election. We all know that. But it’s not...

    Time to Stop Comparing CIA/FBI Coup Attempt to Watergate Nothing Like This Has Happened Before. It is minimizing to call it "Like Watergate" and that is what the MSM and the Deep State want to do. Call it the CIA/FBI Coup Attempt. That is what it is. Name the truth, that the Deep State with their Dogs in the Weaponized CIA/FBI and don't forget the IRS, have been working to undermine this country and its people. These are treasonous, seditious acts. They deserve to be judged with the full force of our Constitutional law and severe punishment needs to be...

    Mark Levin and his "Great Patriot" (Cory Katz) How CRTV is trying to avoid paying Steyn's Lawsuit Win CRTV is pulling a fast one to get out of its legal obligations. Katz admitted to it before hand, seems criminal to me. Levin seems to be a pit. ...Cary Katz vs CRTV LLC is, in fact, Cary Katz vs Cary Katz. If you read Judge Gordon's final order, you quickly understand that Cary Katz is CRTV and CRTV is Cary Katz: He's not only the sole investor, and spent two days on the stand testifying as CRTV's principal witness, but he...
  • (Somali) Teens arrested at Auburn’s Sapphire club after chem-free brawl

    Police from Lewiston and Auburn were called to Sapphire Nightclub and Event Center shortly before 11:30 p.m. for a fight involving dozens of people. The three teens were charged with disorderly conduct but not identified because of their ages. A video circulating on Facebook on Wednesday showed several teens assaulting a man working security outside the club. The club owner posted on Facebook Wednesday that he was punched in the face and his wife was bitten during the melee. Police said there were no serious injuries but they declined to release further details. None of the security staff reported being...

    Chronicles Magazine ^ | 04/03/18 | H.A. Scott Trask -
    Probably one of the most lucid articles on the takeover by Muslims (Moslims) in the West. I recommend it: Why are so many Western Christians either silent about, or actually complicit in, the Muslim hegira to the West? One would think Christians would be at the forefront of opposition. Some are, but most are not, and these latter include Roman Catholics, Anglicans, Lutherans, mainline “Protestants,” and evangelicals in America. These churches have made four claims... ...Samuel Huntington, too, understood this. In his Clash of Civilizations (1996) he wrote, “The underlying problem for the West is not Islamic fundamentalism but Islam,...

    snip... In 2014, the Obama administration issued a “Dear Colleague” guidance that threatened school districts – whose disciplinary measures showed a disproportionately greater number of minority students affected – could be subject to investigation by the Departments of Justice and Education, regardless of whether the behaviors leading to the discipline were unacceptable. Snip... At RCI, journalist Paul Sperry reviewed documents related to the Broward County Public Schools PROMISE program, the aim of which, he says, was to allow “thousands of troubled, often violent, students to commit crimes without legal consequence” in the name of saving minority and low-income students from...

    The kids are grown and gone. I live in the Northeast. I am looking to move to a small city or town or village. I am healthy, happy and adaptable. I would prefer a place that has a conservative base. Every location on the lists of best places to move are leftist s***holes. I am hoping for a place with four seasons, albeit, not as severe as the northeast. Elevations are fine, beauty is important, and so is the need of good, friendly people. Any ideas?
