  • “Tranny” gets college “Deplorable Radio” DJs yanked from live radio

    Bogus Times ^ | 11/21/17 | Kim Parkhurst
    Student deejays of the “Deplorable Radio” show at University of Minnesota-Morris were shut down in mid programming this month after one said the word “tranny” on-air – a word the student program manager called a “hate slur” and a violation of FCC rules when barging into the studio with campus police to pull them off the air. The weekly radio show is now facing cancellation; however, school administrators are hard at work searching for a crime to blame for permanently pulling the show off the airwaves. As it turns out, the word “tranny” is not in violation of FCC rules...

    If anyone is still without a place to have dinner next Thursday, or is thinking twice about spending Thanksgiving with liberals, a group is meeting at a nice Upper West Side restaurant (no, that's not an oxymoron), conservatives only. Our tentative times are 2:30 and 7. Freepmail me to let me know if you are interested and which time is better for you.

    The Conservative Voice in the news of the day is fast fading The News of the Day the Mainstream and Social Media are squatting on: Legions of people are being thrown off the Information Highway; the bus is leaving the depot without them. Amid a daily myriad of made-to-order distractions, including the ongoing visceral hatred of the outcome of presidential election 2016; the more than 20-year old sexual harassment claims of loud Entertainment Industry victims; the recent advance of Character Assassination By Allegation, allegations of which are impossible to prove or disprove, Conservatives are steadily losing their voice on the...
  • Roy Moore’s Accuser Worked for Democratic Leaders and Is Actively Campaigning for Moore’s Opponent

    11/10/2017 8:44:11 AM PST · by TigerClaws · 127 replies
    We have just received information that one of the women accusing Alabama senatorial candidate Roy Moore of soliciting dates from her when she was a teenager and he was in his 30’s is not only a passionate progressive, but she has actually worked for the DNC and is actively campaigning for Moore’s opponent, Doug Jones. Deborah Wesson Gibson, aka Debbie Gibson, was named in the Washington Post article accusing Moore, and social media evidence makes clear that she is a fervent supporter of Jones and Democrats in general, and has even worked for the DNC. Wesson Gibson is a sign...
  • Despite the chaos, Trump has managed to push the most conservative agenda in a generation

    A year into the Trump era, President Trump is living up to his advance billing as a “black swan” event for American politics — disrupting everything he touches. He has opened divisions and brought chaos to both parties, and the turmoil is not going to abate with the midterm election next year, no matter what the result. The GOP may never be the same, while a lurch further to the populist left by Democrats might be a formula for additional electoral disaster. The culture wars have gone thermonuclear, with institutions such as the NFL suddenly embroiled in heightened political controversy....

    NYT Op-Ed ^ | 11-1-2017 | Eric Levitz
    The Democratic Party has learned to stop worrying and love “big government” liberalism. The party’s top presidential prospects are advertising their ardor for socialized medicine, free public college, universal child care and paid family leave. Even the party’s moderate senators are now pushing for the same kind of public health insurance option that their centrist predecessors killed in the early Obama years. And the party’s 2018 platform — the consensus agenda that ostensibly unites all Democrats, from Joe Manchin of West Virginia to Bernie Sanders — calls for vigorous antitrust enforcement to prevent mega-corporations from rigging the economy against working...

    Heard the hilarious joke about the vice-president of the United States wanting to hang all gay people? Ah, no, my mistake. It wasn’t a joke – it was just another day in the increasingly regressive states of Trumpinistan. Earlier this week the New Yorker reported that, during a White House discussion on gay rights, Donald Trump glibly said that Mike Pence, who has been accused of supporting conversion therapy for LGBT people, “wants to hang them all”. After some bad press, Trump denied ever saying this.

    After eight years in the wilderness, Republicans have a president who will sign nearly anything they put in front of him. You’d think they’d revel in the opportunity to pass legislation they’d been dreaming of codifying in law, but you’d be wrong. Rather than attempt to implement the ideas on which they’d campaigned and won on, they’re staring blankly like a poker player who over-bet with a pair of twos and had his bluff called. But it’s not just elected Republicans; it’s the entire conservative movement that's dropped the ball. After eight years in exile, where are the innovations,...

    WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump delivered a speech at the Values Voter Summit on Friday, hosted by the far-right Christian organization The Family Research Council. The convention also featured an exhibit on gay conversion therapy, which seeks to navigate homosexuals and their family members from an anti-gay perspective. The Parents and Friends of Ex-Gays and Gays (PFOX) organization, which was founded in 1998 "to be an alternative to the misinformed gay family groups which insist that parents can only prove their love for their gay child if they support gay rights and affirm their child's self-proclaimed gay identity," distributed a...

    What images should appear when you Google “white couple”? Probably two people of European descent. If you search those words today, though, you’ll find almost exclusively black couples. The results are similarly skewed for “white man & white woman” and “white couple with children”. Try it. Strange, a bit annoying, and vaguely political – just imagine the reaction if a query for “black couple” turned up only whites. I suspect that wouldn’t fly at Google. What results would you expect when Googling “American inventors”? Likely a mix of great innovators from our past and present, from a variety of backgrounds....

    Twenty-five years ago, when MTV played mostly videos, defeated presidential candidate Patrick J. Buchanan delivered his “Culture War” speech before the Republican National Convention on August 17 at the Houston Astrodome, where he feared for the “soul of America.” Twenty-five years later, when conservatives have ceded all control of the culture war to the Left, MTV’s Video Music Awards (VMAs, itself a bizarre oxymoron for an outlet that plays no videos) is now a forum about politics and the course of the country. Conservatives should watch more MTV. Take heed Buchanan’s observations. And fight back. ...

    I saw a little girl who spent all her tears, in a shelter squeezing her mother’s fingers. The other hand held tight on her shirt, assuring herself she wouldn’t be swept away again. Her face was dirty, wet hair strewn across her cheek like a scar from battle. The eyes were wide in a stance of frightened anticipation on what’s next. No one could comprehend the horror of the monster that day. They don’t teach that in Kindergarten. Then someone asked her if she would like some ice cream. Her mouth blossomed, a smile hatched as her eyes turned down...

    About a year ago I made one of the more risky decisions of my life – one that I knew could hurt my career as an actress. I decided to come out of the conservative closet and admit to my peers that I was a conservative in Hollywood. Yes, hard as it is for some to believe, not everyone in the entertainment industry on the Left Coast is a left-winger. An acquaintance had asked me to write for a right-of-center political magazine. I realized I would be outing myself by doing it, but I ended up writing a few dozen...

    David Mamet, Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright, once noted “I look back on my liberal political beliefs with a sort of wonder – as another exercise in self-involvement – rewarding myself for some superiority I could not logically describe” At the age of 60 he meet first conservative thinker. Upon closer examination he discovered that most conservative thoughts were based on real-world facts while “Liberalism is a religion. Its tenets cannot be proved, its capacity for waste and destruction demonstrated. But it affords a feeling of spiritual rectitude at little or no cost.” Sadly, he captures the reality and emotional allure of...

    SAN FRANCISCO — The Latest on conservative free speech rallies in San Francisco and Berkeley, California (all times local): 9:30 a.m. Dog walkers are planning to protest a politically conservative free-speech rally by leaving pup poop at San Francisco's Crissy Field. A Facebook page encourages protesters to let their dogs loose Friday and Saturday morning at the park near the Golden Gate Bridge and not pick up after them. The page assures dog owners that they can come together Sunday to clean up the field of feces and "hug each other." Portland, Oregon-based Patriot Prayer has a permit to host...

    In an exclusive interview with The Daily Caller, Alabama’s famous “Ten Commandments judge” Roy Moore reveals shocking new developments from his campaign for U.S. Senate. The frontrunner in Alabama’s U.S. Senate race with 39 percent of the vote, Moore alleges that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is trying to steal the election by letting Democrats vote in Alabama’s Republican primary. “Well that’s exactly what their strategy is. That’s what they’re talking about. I wish the people of Alabama knew that. I wish the people of Alabama knew that McConnell and them were using the Democrats to come into the Republican...

    Former Alabama state Chief Justice Roy Moore tells Conservative Review that should he successfully win his Senate race, he would vote against Senator Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., remaining Senate majority leader. With a little over four weeks until Alabama’s GOP primary runoff, Moore holds a commanding lead over incumbent Senator Luther Strange, according to the latest poll. The McConnell-affiliated Senate Leadership Fund super PAC has dumped millions into keeping the unelected Strange in office. In the initial GOP primary, Moore ended in first place, with nearly 39 percent of the vote. Strange was second, with around 33 percent of the votes...

    It’s a remarkable quirk of our federal republic that U.S. policy often hinges on local races. Regional personalities and issues, emerging from places coastal elites have never visited, will play a significant role in next year’s midterm elections—most crucially, the battle for the U.S. Senate. At stake is not just which party controls the upper chamber—the rough number of blues versus reds—but how faithful senators will be to their governing philosophies. As the dust settles from 2018, will Washington be more conservative? More liberal? More functional? Local politics will determine many of these answers. In tiny Harpers Ferry, West Virginia,...
