    New York Observer owner — and Donald Trump's son-in-law — Jared Kushner has had a "brief," informal chat with deal maker and LionTree chief exec Aryeh Bourkoff about a postelection Trump-brand media network, according to the Financial Times, citing sources familiar with the matter. Kushner reportedly reached out to the head of the boutique investment bank, a personal friend, over the last few months. Bourkoff is the financial advisor behind Walt Disney's (DIS) 2014 acquisition of Maker Studios, as well as a number of other deals. Trump had told the Washington Post in mid-September that he had "no interest in...

    First lady Michelle Obama´s speech this week slamming Donald Trump´s comments about women was "the most effective political speech since Ronald Reagan," according to right-wing commentator Glenn Beck. On his TV program Friday, Beck said his viewers should watch Obama´s speech to see its "devastating effects. And I don´t mean on Donald Trump. I mean on the conservative movement." "We had been talking about, ´there is no war on women.´ You just handed them a war on women," Beck said. "And if you listen to her words carefully, oh my gosh, oh my gosh, they are coopting women and it...

    It was October 1998, and Hillary Clinton’s midterm campaign swing for Democratic candidates brought the first lady on a Saturday afternoon to a middle-school gymnasium in Janesville, Wis. A 28-year-old conservative upstart from the town was running for Congress — and Clinton, rallying 1,200 people with a rip-roaring denunciation of Republicans, was trying to stop him. Clinton’s efforts failed, of course. Paul D. Ryan went on to win, and he has held his House seat in Wisconsin’s industrial southeastern corner for nearly two decades as he has risen to become the highest-ranking Republican in the country. Clinton and Ryan did...
  • The next ‘deplorables’? Clinton campaign rips ‘backwards’ Catholic beliefs in leaked e-mails

    WASHINGTON, D.C., October 11, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) – “Conservative Catholics” are the latest Americans to be smeared by members of Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s campaign, leaked emails revealed on Tuesday show. Catholic beliefs are bashed as “backwards” and conservative Catholics are termed responsible for “an amazing bastardization of the faith” in one of the more than 1,000 hacked emails from Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta released Tuesday afternoon by WikiLeaks. “I imagine they think it is the most socially acceptable politically conservative religion,” writes Clinton campaign Director of Communications Jennifer Palmieri. “Their rich friends wouldn't understand if they became evangelicals.”...

    American Thinker ^ | October 1, 2016 | Scott Lazarowitz
    Many conservatives are frustrated with our society's lack of acceptance of conservatism into the mainstream. But it's not because of Republican Party weakness or a failure in political strategy, as some conservatives such as Steve Deace suggest on talk radio and among the Internet and TV pundit class. The problem is because conservatives have abandoned the true moral principles underlying a civilized society: private property, free exchange, and individual liberty. Starting about a century ago conservatives began to surrender their moral principles to the progressives' collectivist schemes, including the income tax, FDR's New Deal, LBJ's Great Society and the idea...

He also criticized RNC chair Reince Priebus for telling those Republican politicians who did support the nominee that they may not receive RNC support when running for re-election.Here is the modus operandi of Mark Levin: He develops personal grudges, then searches for logic to support those grudges. Instead of attacking the RNC chair when he is doing the right thing, and bringing Trump's initial lack of support for the Republican nominee, he should be rallying against the evil, criminal Hillary.

    This speech is different than many of his larger rallies. It was sponsored by the New York State Conservative Party — who knew they had one? Trump is very much "at home" and at ease, greeting many old friends in the audience. He speaks candidly and quietly. One of the very interesting parts is a detailed description of how he took over the Wollman Ice Skating Rink project and what advice, techniques and technologies he used. The audience laughs appreciatlvely at many points in this affectionate speech by a New York native, especially when he takes a shot at Matt...

    Phyllis Schlafly, the St. Louis-born American intellectual who grew from a shy and beautiful girl to become one of the most influential political activists of the 20th and 21st century, died today, Monday, September 5, 2016 according to Eagle Forum. Schlafly has written or co-written more than 20 books, on military policy, education, legal and social issues. Her first book, “A Choice, Not an Echo,” is credited with winning Barry Goldwater the Republican nomination for president and inspiring the conservative movement that eventually led to Ronald Reagan’s presidency. Her military work was a major factor in Reagan's’ decision to proceed...

    Conservative icon Phyllis Schlafly passed away on Monday. She was 92. Schlafly, the founder of Eagle Forum, rose to prominence in the 1960s when she wrote the book A Choice, Not an Echo, which sold more than three million copies. She was a leading voice of opposition against the Equal Rights Amendment, fighting to preserve traditional gender roles. She wrote a total of 23 books, the most recent being an expanded edition of A Choice, Not an Echo. In March, Schlafly endorsed Donald Trump for president. Schafly was predeceased by her husband, John, and is survived by her six children.

It's understandable that establishment Republicans would despise the dynamic of conservative radio talkers trying to yank party leaders to the right. But shutting them down? Does that sound like reasonable moderation?

    Despite conservatives’ perceptions, conservative media exists in a small, ineffectual bubble. One of the more interesting developments since the emergence of the Web as a mass medium is the establishment of a conservative media presence. Prior to the Internet, there were basically no large-audience right-wing media operations aside from a few talk-radio programs. Since the 1996 establishment of Fox News and the popularization of the Web, it has now become possible for a conservatively inclined people to consume all kinds of news and opinion catering to their specific tastes and viewpoints. Many right-leaning people have hailed this development, believing that...
  • How Long Has a Conservative Movement Existed in America?

    I was reading about how Phyllis Shlafly has attended every Republican Convention since 1952. In 1952, the conservative candidate was Sen. Robert Taft of Ohio, who was a bitter opponent of FDR's big government policies. Shlafly supported him. The establishment candidate was Gen. Eisenhower. But who was the first prominent American conservative activist? My vote would be for Albert Jay Nock (1870-1945), who led a national intellectual movement opposed to Woodrow Wilson's big government policies. He also opposed World War One. Before Wilson came into office in 1913, America did not have an income tax. It was, therefore, not necessary...

The journalists compared this event to Nazi or ISIS propaganda.

In addition, she isn't on the list of speakers for the Cleveland Convention and she has been silent of late. She has had lots of experience in dealing with those demons from Hell (the MSM) and her...

Before being sworn in last week, Davidson made a career parachuting from airplanes as an Army Ranger, then filing patents as a manufacturing entrepreneur. Other than a short stint as a township trustee, he’s never held elected office until now. But what Davidson lacks in political acumen, he’s confident he can replace with leadership experience.

    A progressive organization published a list of the “ten worst things” in education. You can learn a lot about why public schools are mediocre by looking at this list. The ten items provide a distillation of what progressive/liberal educators value, and conversely what they consider not worth mentioning. Progressive/liberal thinking dominates our schools, so this is not idle chitchat. Some of the ten items may be problems but they are hardly “the worst.” As you’ll see, there is almost no mention of academic failings, namely, that kids don’t master basic skills nor learn much essential knowledge.

    Surprised? Not really. I know what you’re thinking. “There are people who get their daily news from social postings on Facebook?” Sadly, the answer to that is yes. At any given moment there are over 150 million users roaming Mark Zuckerberg’s monstrosity, and you can bet that some percentage of them rarely read anything outside the online utopia. So, while we may not like to admit it, the “trending” section at the upper right of the page has become frighteningly important. Facebook swears that it determines what’s “trending” by analyzing reader preference. If it’s popular on the site - meaning...
  • Trump’s turn right started a long time ago

    The conventional wisdom is that Donald Trump only became a conservative the day he announced his candidacy for the presidency. But like all conventional wisdom about Trump, it’s wrong. In “Time to Get Tough: Making America #1 Again,” which came out in December 2011, Trump presented a detailed economic critique that any fiscal conservative would applaud. The reason “this country is an economic disaster right now,” he wrote, “is because Barack Obama doesn’t understand how wealth is created — and how the federal government can destroy it.” The private Donald Trump, on the other hand, is “the dearest, most thoughtful,...
  • Trump Will Take From Bernie

    As both the GOP and Democrats trudge forward, fractures are emerging on the left as Bernie Sanders threatens to stay in the race until the end. What was once a happy-go-lucky party of communists and moderate liberals singing Kumbaya is now a mirror of the Republicans under Donald Trump. The rogue candidate threatening to demolish the status quo is a reality in both worlds. The difference is that only one of the rogues will win their party's nomination. Come November, it is becoming more and more possible that disenfranchised Democrats who oppose TPP and the pay-to-play politics in the Democratic...
  • The secret movement to draft Gen. James Mattis (USMC-Ret.) for President

    An anonymous group of conservative billionaires is ready to place their bets on a man dubbed “Mad Dog,” hoping to draft him into the presidential race to confront Donald Trump. Think of it as a Plan B should Trump be nominated by the Republican Party in Cleveland: swing behind retired U.S. Marine Corps Gen. James Mattis and press him into service yet again as a third-party candidate. Mattis is the former commander of Central Command, which includes the strife-afflicted conflict zones of the Middle East, North Africa, and Central Asia, and has developed a reputation among troops as a general...
  • Secretive group of Hollywood conservatives suddenly dissolves

    The Friends of Abe has acted as a clandestine club for Hollywood conservatives for more than a decade, hosting secret events where they could vent rightwing views and hear speeches from visiting Tea Party luminaries. But on Thursday the organisation – which counts Jon Voight, Jerry Bruckheimer and Kelsey Grammer among its 1,500 members – made an abrupt announcement: it was dissolving. “Today, because we have been successful in creating a community that extends far beyond our events, people just don’t feel as much of a need to show up for every speaker or bar night, and fewer people pay...

    Some people claim that Trump only recently arrived at most of these viewpoints, so I'd like to discuss Trump's history with each of these issues (sorry for the length but I think these important topics deserve to be delved into). I was told yesterday that Trump is a liberal Democrat. Trump’s political registration records since 1987 are public and available online. During this period, Trump has been a registered Republican for more than twice as long as he was a registered Democrat. If people would bother to read his books, look at the full-page ads he took out on policy...

    It's a Ted Cruz sweep in Wyoming. Cruz won 14 of 14 Republican National Convention delegates up for grabs at the Wyoming state convention here Saturday. The crowd here was clearly in Cruz's corner, as the Texas senator was the only candidate to make the trip to Casper -- ahead of a major snowstorm -- and Sarah Palin, scheduled to speak for Trump, previously canceled.

    At the last minute, officials at the State University of New York at New Paltz curtly canceled a planned campus debate between a notable left-wing media critic and a notable right-wing media critic because the right-wing media critic has right-wing views. The last-minute cancellation of the debate between Jeff Cohen of Fairness & Accuracy in Reporting and Cliff Kincaid of Accuracy in Media occurred on March 30, the day it was scheduled, reports Campus Reform.

    Conservative icon Phyllis Schlafly says six state leaders are ousting her from the Eagle Forum organization she founded because of her support of Donald Trump, and five of them support Sen. Ted Cruz. Schlafly released a statement Monday claiming the group is trying to take over the organization by controlling bank accounts, firing employees and hiring their own. “I think it’s an attempt to vote me out,” Schlafly told the conservative World Net Daily. “It’s disloyal, and it’s terribly shocking, and I’m completely depressed about it.” Among those Schlafly called out by name Monday was Cathie Adams, who served as...
