    I was born a liberal, in the mid ‘50s, in Southern California. Everyone was. We weren’t political, we were righteous. We weren’t informed, we were pliable. Craving fan-boys gorging flowery rhetoric. Low-caloric in substance, refute free. Facts are mean. And there is nothing new under the sun. Planted my grubstake in the South after the ’94 earthquake. I like these people, they’re real. Most seemed to go hog wild on honesty. And one boasting they’re basking in high cotton is as scarce as hen’s teeth. Hypocrisy is answered with, “well bless your heart”. And then you’re out. I came from...

    University professors are not taking kindly to the latest Pew Research poll numbers showing Republican-leaning voters have an unreceptive view of academia, and some are pointing the finger of blame at conservative media. The June 2017 Pew survey showed 58 percent of right-leaning voters reported higher education has a negative impact on the country. Only 36 percent of Republicans polled held a favorable view – a hefty double-digit loss from the 54 percent favorability polled just two years ago.

    Former ESPN reporter Britt McHenry believes she was fired from the sports network because she is openly conservative. McHenry was one of around 100 employees ESPN let go in April, but suggested in a since-deleted Twitter response on Monday that she believes she was let go because of her political views. Replying to someone who slammed ESPN for arguing they aren't liberal, McHenry wrote: 'I mean I've been openly Conservative... look how that ended up...' Since receiving backlash, McHenry has tweeted three times to defend her claim. 'Need to take my opinions & truth to a place & blog that...

    A teacher at a public high school in Alabama sent his students home with a summer reading list chock full of conservative authors from which to choose, including Ann Coulter, Ronald Reagan, Walter Williams, Thomas Sowell, and libertarian John Stossel. But parents became concerned that it leaned too far right and so now, the kids don’t have to read anything over the summer.

    I think it was mildly amusing that some loud right-wingers spent a minute disrupting a bunch of New York liberals’ conservative murder porn party. There, I said it. And now, according to some people on the conservative side, I’m not a conservative anymore.Oh. Well, if conservatism has morphed into a human centipede of onanistic purity-signaling, then you fussy guardians of the word can have it.Now, there is a coherent and reasonable argument that hitting back liberals with a taste of their own medicine – that is, inflicting upon them a microscopic fraction of what they have spent decades inflicting upon...

The car’s other passengers stepped out of the vehicle wielding knives.

    BOSTON – What Lexie Kaufman loves most about Emerson College is its academics. A journalism major, she praised that department and its impressive television studios on campus. But she won’t be returning for her sophomore year to the small, Boston-based liberal arts school, what she considered her “dream college” when she entered as a freshman. “It’s a shame, in the end,” she said in a recent interview with The College Fix. “It’s been nothing but awful to me.” Why so? Because she’s a conservative, and the constant bullying from peers she received over her freshman year sent her packing. It...

    With the Republican nomination and subsequent election of Donald Trump there has been a great deal of hand wringing regarding what it means to be conservative. Does it mean this or that and who gets to determine which? Many “conservative” publications have spent more than a few pixels on this topic; and yes, most of the editors believe they get to define it. They are wrong. In fact the framing of the entire argument is wrong. And for all you self-identified conservatives out there please don’t get your panties in a bundle since the same can be said of liberalism....

    SHTF Plan ^ | 6-3-2017 | Daniel Lang
    For generations, we’ve seen the political landscape in this country teeter back and forth between the Left and the Right. Usually about every 8 years or so, whichever political party is dominating Congress, the Executive Branch, and the state legislatures, is kicked out by voters and replaced with the other political party. However, there’s something very different going on this time around. Donald Trump’s ascent to the oval office represents a major shift in our society and culture, and I’m not talking about the intermittent shuffle of politicians that we see every few years. Instead, the pendulum is about to...

    Politico reports Sunday: “The push to block, rewrite and delay scores of Obama-era rules may be the [Trump] administration’s biggest untold success.” That declaration comes just one month after Politico mocked President Donald Trump’s efforts to use the Congressional Review Act (CRA) to reverse his predecessor’s rules: none of it, Politco declared, “evoke[d] the drain-the-swamp anti-establishment populism that Trump rode to the presidency.” “Trump’s ardent supporters and detractors alike tend to exaggerate the impact of the 13 rules he’s rescinding, out of more than 20,000 approved under President Obama,” Politico’s Michael Grunwald wrote on April 10, adding: “For the most...

    The Conservatives will follow Andrew Scheer into the 2019 election, after the young Saskatchewan MP won an upset victory at the party’s leadership convention in Toronto Saturday night. Scheer, who turned 38 on May 20, edged out front-runner Maxime Bernier by less than two percentage points on the 13th and final ballot Saturday night, finishing with just under 50.95 per cent of the vote. The room at the Toronto Congress Centre erupted in a shocked cheer as party officials read out the final count, with confetti and blue and white balloons falling onto the crowd. “What a campaign this has...

    Gateway Pundit has retweeted a report from borderlandalternativemedia.com that Hannity will be fired next week. True or not, it is a reminder that the number of conservative media outlets are few in number. My personal opinion is that the liberal world was shocked that conservative media was able to overcome their attempts at brainwashing during this last election. They thought they had it in the bag. They thought their voice was so powerful that it could not be overcome. Now it appears they are attempting to silence conservative voices one by one. Hannity is definitely one of those pro-Trump voices...

    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...

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.
