    WASHINGTON — Having filled a Supreme Court vacancy, President Trump is turning his attention to the more than 120 openings on the lower federal courts. On Monday, he will announce a slate of 10 nominees to those courts, a senior White House official said, the first in what could be near monthly waves of nominations. The White House counsel, Donald F. McGahn II, said the nominations were a vindication of a commitment Mr. Trump made during the campaign “to appoint strong and principled jurists to the federal bench who will enforce the Constitution’s limits on federal power and protect the...

    Ben Stein is entitled to believe anything he wants but never again may he call himself a conservative Alleged conservative Ben Stein revealed his bleeding-heart leftist self Wednesday on “Your World with Neil Cavuto” as he defended Jimmy Kimmel, his longtime personal friend. Kimmel delivered a heart-wrenching monolog the other night about his newborn son who was born with a dangerous heart defect and needed emergency open-heart surgery. No one with blood coursing through his veins who watched it could fail to be moved as Kimmel passionately discussed his personal anguish about a loved one.

    Eventually we’ll find out what really happened at the Heritage Foundation Conservative champion Jim DeMint was ousted as president of the Heritage Foundation yesterday, a post the former Republican senator from South Carolina assumed in April 2013. Newsweek reports DeMint wasn’t fired as such. It nonsensically reports that Heritage’s “board of trustees had unanimously voted for DeMint to resign from his role as president” — whatever that means — and that DeMint obediently tendered his resignation after the vote.

    American Thinker ^ | April 5, 2017 | Bruce Deitrick Price
    K-12 should be a boot camp. Students become knowledgeable, resourceful, independent, able to navigate successfully through life. Instead, our public schools prepare children to be incompetent or, even worse, frightened snowflakes. Typically, students learn little. They are kept in a bubble of low expectations. Martin Luther King summed it up: "Intelligence plus character – that is the goal of true education." What an odd outcome. Many of our students end up with neither intelligence nor character. While the decline in academics is obvious, there is a more subtle sort of decline. Instead of precision, students learn that vagueness and wrong...
  • New conservative news network in the works to challenge Fox News? (Roger Ailes is involved?)

    But … we’ve already got One America News.The reason this is getting so much hype today is because the words “Roger Ailes” are swirling around the rumors. A well-placed source close to the proposal tells Mediaite that serious discussions are underway to create an alternative conservative cable network on the belief that the Fox News Network is moving too far to the left. The source, who is engaged in the talks, says a meeting is planned for today with two prominent high-powered television executives, some underperforming conservative networks and people who have an interest and the ability to fund...

    The New York Times version of political diversity is that even if you are a scorned "conservative" you can still be tolerated on their pages but ONLY if you are resolutely anti-Trump. A supposed conservative was recently hired by the Times but read this description about him in the very first sentence of this April 12 Politico story:
  • Conservative versus left-wing tax protests

    Canada Free Press ^ | 04/19/17 | Daniel Greenfield
    Conservatives want fewer chains. Leftists insist that the problem with the chains is that not everyone is chained down hard enough A conservative tax protest is a protest that taxes are too high, too onerous or illegal. A left-wing tax protest is a demand for more taxes on someone else. Or, in this case, a baseless accusation that someone else isn’t paying enough taxes. It’s hard to think of a better way to summarize the fundamental differences between conservatives and the left when it comes to big government.

    Let us build a town. A conservative town, where the best of us can live, thrive, raise our families and enjoy a quality of life that just doesn't happen everywhere. Who will be there? People of courage, commitment and intelligence of course! What organizations will be there? Do we all have a role there? For example: I want to see Thomas Sowell and his family there. Sowell will be retired, involved in lecture series at the local club. Michelle Malkin will be there with her family and she will run her web based businesses, raise her family in peace and...

    YouTube is addressing a corporate boycott: Advertising sponsors are withdrawing ads, but the solution involves disproportionately censoring channels that are not politically correct, specifically anything remotely conservative. Google AdSense, a program enabling YouTube publishers to receive ad revenue from corporate sponsors, caused titan corporations like AT&T, Verizon, Starbucks, Wal-Mart, Pepsi, and several others to pull their advertising from YouTube because their ads reportedly are premiering on channels with terroristic and hateful content. In an effort to comply with corporate demands, YouTube has secretly enforced their restricted mode to hide age-inappropriate content, shield comments from all videos, and allow third-party media...

    I want to know which campaigns were responsible for fraudulently creating over 1,300 memberships before I cast my vote for leadership. It's been weeks since the revelations were made and over one week since both Lisa Raitt and Maxime Bernier called on the party to trace the memberships and IP addresses they were sold from back to a culprit. Heading into April, we still have no names or penalties being doled out. I don't want someone who can't be trusted leading the Conservative Party, but what I want even less is a party establishment that tries to protect leadership candidates...

    The Internal Revenue Service made Tea Party and conservative groups wait years for tax-exempt status, but granted exempt status to an "After School Satan Club" in just 10 days, according to the watchdog group Judicial Watch. Charitable, religious, and educational organizations can receive tax-exempt status if they follow IRS guidelines for nonprofits. The IRS for years prevented some conservative groups from obtaining this status, targeting them using key words such as "tea-party" and "patriot." Many of these groups had to wait up to seven years to receive tax-exempt status, while others were denied. "In the meantime, leftist groups like the...

    Tim Allen opened up briefly about what it means to be a conservative in Hollywood in 2017 during an interview with late-night host Jimmy Kimmel Thursday night, explaining that one must be “real careful” in talking about President Donald Trump or else risk being beaten up. “You’ve gotta be real careful around here. You get beat up if you don’t believe what everybody believes,” the 63-year-old Last Man Standing star told Kimmel when asked about his attendance at Trump’s inauguration in January.

    OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — An Oklahoma state senator was booked Thursday on child prostitution charges for allegedly hiring a 17-year-old boy for sex, leading to calls for his resignation and a separate internal investigation into his years of work with a youth program. Ralph Shortey, a 35-year-old conservative Republican who has a wife and three young daughters, surrendered to authorities on charges of engaging in child prostitution, transporting a minor for prostitution and engaging in prostitution within 1,000 feet of a church. He was released after about two hours on a $100,000 bond. "I have no comment at this time,...

Oddly, the left-wing news organizations and websites failed to make the list. What a shock. Doug Ross reported: Your betters at the Harvard University Library have published a guide to “Fake News Sites” that includes a bevy of real news sites that happen to lean right. Among them: the Heritage Foundation, Conservative Review, and Wikileaks, the latter of which has revealed (whether you agree with its approach or not) some very real news indeed.

    President Donald Trump had just addressed a joint session of Congress. The speech, which was well received by both liberal and conservative media, ended with a call for all Americans to dream and do great things again, together. No sooner had the last syllable reverberated through the chamber of the House of Representatives than the Democratic side of the aisle emptied as though a fire alarm had been pulled. Only a few Democrats stayed behind to shake Trump’s hand, among them West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin. The rapid exodus of the Democrats was an example of their “resistance” to Trump,...
