  • Bill Kristol Is Not Yet Out ( Is he a spent force in conservatism?)

    American Thinker ^ | 02/16/2018 | By Paul Gottfried
    I've just been reading on Breitbart a tirade against Bill Kristol, which features a comparison between this supposedly falling neocon star and the author's friend Tony, who landed in jail after stabbing his ex-wife's lover.  Just like Tony, who unsuccessfully tried to attract his divorced wife's attention, Bill, we are told, is going nuts in expressing his contempt for Donald Trump.  But like Tony, who in a fit of frustration destroyed his own life, Bill may be self-destructing as he disses a transformed conservative establishment. I'm not sure that this labored comparison works since I've no idea what the equivalent is in...
  • Mass Exodus from Blue States to Red States

    Democrats claim their policies are superior to Republicans, but they keep leaving their blue states and moving into red states. Democrats are known for taking over large urban areas and turning them blue, then deserting them as they become unpleasant to move on to better territory in red states where they make the same transformations. They increase taxes and regulations, making it expensive and annoying to live wherever they get into power. According to United Van Lines, the top 10 states people are leaving include the blue states Wisconsin, Ohio, Massachusetts, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey and Illinois. Only three red...

    Today, February 2, 2018a date which will live in libfamyit was revealed the very essence of the United States of America was surreptitiously and dastardly attacked by the Democratic Party and forces of a propaganda machine, the Empire of G-Man. These forces attacked The Constitution. Defiled the Rule of Law. Systematically attempted to overturn the results of a free election and secure the shackles of stifling liberalism. Strangling Life, Liberty and The Pursuit of Happiness. The quiet smiling annihilation of a Free Republic. They have, therefore, undertaken an offensive extending to destroy any dream that was, is American. The facts...

    Reading Bill Kristols latest emasculated flail of a troll the desperation, the manipulation, the intellectual dishonesty, the mind and word games, the cuddling with evil at NBC News it all took me back to early 1985, to a guy I knew who ended up in prison. Eager for adventure and to be on my own, just a few months after (barely) graduating high school I lit out for south Florida from rural Wisconsin. It was an amazing time, the Miami Vice-era. Although I was on the Gulf Coast and not in Miami, the pastels, neons, and building boom...
  • Historians of Conservatism Stumped By Trump

    Accuracy in Academia ^ | January 11, 2018 | Malcolm A. Kline
    It's laudable that academics actually have an interest in a political philosophy which is usually either disdained or ignored in academia. Nevertheless, their failure to comprehend the Trump Administration shows that they are still struggling with it. This bewilderment was on display recently at the annual meeting of the American Historical Association (AHA), which Colleen Flaherty covered for Inside Higher Ed: ~"How do we think about and engage with conservative Trump voters?" Willamette University Professor Seth Cotlar asked. "What does it mean to empathize with people who advocate white nationalism?" The possibility that he is on the wrong track with...

    Spero News ^ | JAN 09, 2018 | MARTIN BARILLAS
    Two former employees of Google, James Damore and David Gudeman, have filed a class action lawsuit against the tech giant in a California Superior Court. Damore was fired by Google for a controversial memo he wrote and circulated about the companys diversity policies. According to the court filing, Damore, Gudeman, and other class members were ostracized, belittled, and punished for their heterodox political views, and for the added sin of their birth circumstances of being Caucasians and/or males, the lawsuit alleged. This is the essence of discrimination Google formed opinions about and then treated Plaintiffs not based on their...

    WASHINGTON -- My friend and colleague Donald Rieck, president of The American Spectator Foundation, died late last week in an automobile accident. He leaves two charming and very young children. He also leaves many friends throughout the conservative movement and shocked colleagues at The American Spectator. He was 50 years old. Don was, as Roger Kaplan chronicled in his Spectator obituary: "A force to be reckoned with. Burly, direct, always busy, he was the kind of man who let you know he wanted whatever he asked for yesterday, even if he had not mentioned it to you yet, and yet...

    RUSH: Folks, do not doubt me. They think they have won the House in 2018. They hate Trump and so they think everybody else does. The reasons they hate Trump, they think, are the reasons everybody else hates Trump. They hate Republicans and they think they have succeeded with their buddies in the media in making everybody else hate Republicans. They think the Virginia gubernatorial election is the sign that the country has admitted its mistake and is ready now to get back to normal and elect Democrats to run Washington, D.C. So they have made this assumption. They want...

    Add Pajama Medias Bridget Johnson to the list of those summarily silenced by Twitters ongoing purge of conservative voices. According to her employer, Johnson, a long-time journalist with established bylines at, among others, USA Today, the Hill, Politico, NPR, and the Jerusalem Post, was removed from Twitter over the weekend without warning, cause or explanation. A link to Johnsons cached tweets (from late September) shows nothing close to any of the flame wars, abuse, taunting, bullying or anything else that violates Twitters intentionally-cryptic terms of service. As someone who has known Bridget for going on 10 years (in the early...

    "Keeping ourselves and our loved ones safe from harm is perhaps our strongest human motivation, deeply embedded in our very DNA. It is so deep and important that it influences much of what we think and do, maybe more than we might expect. For example, over a decade now of research in political psychology consistently shows that how physically threatened or fearful a person feels is a key factor although clearly not the only one in whether he or she holds conservative or liberal attitudes."
  • Trump wants to end welfare as Bill Clinton knows it (Libtard trigger alert)

    Breitbart ^ | November 24, 2017
    Overhauling welfare was one of the defining goals of Bill Clintons presidency, starting with a campaign promise to "end welfare as we know it," continuing with a bitter policy fight and producing change that remains hotly debated 20 years later. Now, President Donald Trump wants to put his stamp on the welfare system, apparently in favor of a more restrictive policy. He says "people are taking advantage of the system." Trump, who has been signaling interest in the issue for some time, said this past week that he wants to tackle the issue after the tax overhaul he is seeking...

    Roy Moore's Christianity and conservatism represents something that scares the heebie-jeebies out of the establishment Can someone figure out who you are today by examining your actions from 39 years ago? I am not who I was 39 years ago, or 29 years ago, or 9 years ago. As human beings, we tend to learn, grow and mature. I do not believe Roy Moore is guilty of what he is being accused of, but isnt it strange that all of this suddenly appeared within 30 days of an election regarding a guy who is not only a threat to the...
  • The Corruption of Faith

    When Jim Zeigler, the state auditor of Alabama, invoked the Bible to defend Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore against allegations that he had inappropriate contact with underage girls while single and in his 30s (which Moore has sort of denied), it signaled perhaps the final stage in the corruption of American evangelicalism. Zeigler claimed there are many instances in the Bible where older men had sexual relations with young girls. He cites Mary and Joseph as one example. That the religious left has made similar analogies to advance their political agenda is no excuse. It proves my point. Religious liberals...

    Many people over the age of thirty treat YouTube as sort of a joke. They use to use it primarily to watch clips of speeches or for how-to videos: how to fix a dishwater, how to set up a wireless printer. But in the past six months or so, older conservatives have begun to follow specific channels from a wide variety of perspectives people with 1 million, 2 million subscribers and more. And they are now realizing that YouTube can be one of the greatest facilitators of communication in the world a way for ordinary people to bypass...

    American Thinker ^ | November 2, 2017 | Gary Gindler
    On November 2, 1917, exactly 100 years ago, British foreign secretary Lord Arthur Balfour sent a private letter to Lord Walter Rothschild, the second Baron Rothschild. The letter was written not by Balfour, but by other ministers in Lloyd George's Cabinet Lord Alfred Milner and Leopold Amery. In history, this letter became known as the Balfour Declaration. Both Balfour and Milner were true Britons. Rothschild was proud of being a Jew. Amery was a Jew who carefully concealed his Jewish origins. What united this quartet? All of them were, of course, to some degree, Zionists, but only to the...

    National Review ^ | 10/24/2017 | Theodore Kupfer
    <p>The typical conservative case against the genre amounts not to music criticism, but to the charge that it promotes dangerous behaviors in the culture. Rap group N.W.A.s 1988 album Straight Outta Compton is the representative example. Ice Cube, Dr. Dre, Eazy-E, and MC Ren, got together in the titular L.A. suburb and wrote a violent and political collection of songs that included F**k the Police. The album met with outrage from conservatives, and since its release the conservative mind has identified hip-hop with a rhapsodic glorification of violence. Most rap, the critique goes, feeds the violent loop that mars inner cities, whose residents scorn the justice system and settle scores outside it.</p>

    The University of North Carolina at Greensboro (UNCG) has long been a cesspool of moral rot and corruption. My longtime readers will recall that the first speech I ever gave on a college campus was at UNCG in 2004. The university had just spent $3,000 the night before to fund a speech by a porn star that referred to herself as the Queen of Anal Sex (I promise I am not making this up). But they refused to fund my speech on the First Amendment because it was too offensive. To cap it off, UNCG told the College Republicans (CRs)...

    American conservatism is having something of an identity crisis. Most conservatives supported Donald Trump last November. But many prominent conservative intellectualsjournalists, academics and think-tank personalitieshave entrenched themselves in bitter opposition. Some have left the Republican Party, while others are waging guerrilla warfare against a Republican administration. Longtime friendships have been ended and resignations tendered. Talk of establishing a new political party alternates with declarations that Mr. Trump will be denied the GOP nomination in 2020. Those in the Never Trump camp say the cause of the split is the presidentthat hes mentally unstable, morally unspeakable, a leftist populist, a rightist...

    t feels strange writing about this topic, some 25 years after I had it completely settled in my mind. But nothing is ever really settled, I suppose. The claim that I had long ago concluded was a basic historical and economic fallacy is back in a big way. The claim is that society needs homogeneity to be orderly and free. It is a core claim of the alt-right and its sympathizers (and, in a different way, of the alt-left). It is what leads them to reject freedom as a path forward and embrace state control of demographics. Its completely wrong....
