  • The Magical Land of Progressitopia

    The Blaze ^ | October 15, 2014 | Matt Barber
    There once was a land, a magical land, with a chicken in every pot. And in this land, which was called Progressitopia, there were two peoples. There were those who saw the world as it was, and there were those who saw the world as they oh-so-very-much wished it could be. The former were called the Trads, and the latter, the Progs. It was the Progs who held dominion over this great land, and so it was they who wrote, or re-wrote, her history. Now, in this kingdom we must remember that Christianity, or “Christianism” as it would later be...

    We’ve known liberals are cheap, miserly (dare I say niggardly?) in their approach to charity which actually requires giving one’s own money away instead of passing laws to force the rest of us to fund charitable causes. Those who followed politics during the embarrassment of the Clinton brothel years remember that Bill Clinton donated his used underwear to charity in order to gain a tax credit. This fits right in with new data on who gives and who does not give. We now have proof that liberals are cheap and conservatives are generous. A recent report from The Chronicle of...

    How unlawful are the minions of the elitist ruling leadership in Murrieta willing to go to stop conservative candidates like Ingram and Serafin? Jonathan Ingram is a local mover and shaker, a small businessman who is President of the Murrieta-Temecula California Assembly, and the President of the Greer Ranch Home Owner’s Association. His signs for Murrieta City Council have graced the roadways and the lawns of some homes as have other signs for other candidates. Diana Serafin knocks on doors in the sunshine more than any other candidate, contemplating the political task ahead of her. She is known for her...

    Will conservatives lose three elections in a row – three chances to win the Senate, three chances to stop Obama and the Democrats’ agenda, three chances to put Democratic senators up in 2016 on the hot seat by forcing them to vote on popular legislation that liberals oppose – because a cohort of die-hard conservative purists cannot bring themselves to choose between the lesser of two evils? For conservatives, the stakes in this election could hardly be higher. The course could not be more clear.

But for the first time in American history a cure is available which can appease conservatives and liberals alike while keeping America together as one nation. And what is this cure? It is the Two Americas Movement (www.twoamericasmovement.org) ; that is, a movement to formalize the divide in America by allowing conservatives and liberals to live their lives independently of each other. It is a formal movement to reshape America from 50 States with limited power to 2 States, each with full power. Of course it will be up to Americans to take the...

For one, these sorts of incidents help me compile a list of schools for my kids to avoid.

Here’s how to reinforce that belief: Sit out the 2014 congressional elections because your favorite candidate lost his primary bid to an establishment Republican. If you live in Kansas, for example, you can suck your thumb while Democrat ringer Greg Orman beats Republican Senator Pat Roberts. If you’re a Kentucky conservative, you can stay home and bitch about Mitch while Alison “Rubberstamp” Grimes heads to Washington. If you’re in Mississippi, you can stay mad at Thad and allow Travis “no repeal” Childers to win. That’ll show those RINOs!...

The Senate press office said a final count will await tallies from all of France’s overseas holdings—not likely until Monday, but it was already clear that the conservatives were back in control of the 348-seat chamber. …

    The IRS's internal auditor distorted the facts surrounding the IRS tea party targeting scandal, leaving Americans with the impression that the tax agency went after conservative groups without also targeting liberal groups, the Senate's top investigative panel said Friday. Investigators said the IRS did mishandle applications for tax exempt status, including subjecting groups to years-long delays and "poorly coordinated reviews." But the report, written by Democrats who control the chamber, concluded that the IRS's "mismanagement" affected both liberal and conservative groups, clearing the agency of accusations of politically motivated behavior. "The subcommittee found no evidence that political bias influences the...

Almost seventy years later Israel is an economic and military powerhouse, with a rapidly growing population, while her traditional enemies are weaker than ever. At the present time, most of those who argue against the continued existence of Israel attempt to base their arguments on moral grounds. Still, a small and noisy group of conservatives contend that our support for Israel undermines our standing in the region, and threatens our national...

    Last night in Alaska, the choice of both establishment Republican Karl Rove and the free-market Club for Growth won over a tea-party-backed candidate — but not by much. With that result comes some lessons for the future about Democratic interference in GOP primaries. The race against Democratic senator Mark Begich this fall will be close and very hard fought — and could determine overall control of the Senate. Miller’s grassroots support gave him a late surge against Sullivan. But one of the biggest drags on the frontrunner was a series of brutal TV ad attacks against him by Put Alaska...

But in the past two years, the Kentucky Republican has emerged as his party's most passionate voice on criminal justice reform, explicitly decrying the system's disproportionate impact on African Americans. You might assume that Paul, widely seen as a contender for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination, is trying to redeem himself with black voters who were alienated by his criticism of the Civil Rights Act. Yet both positions spring from the same wariness of state...

    When choosing a side in conflict, it should be our moral dispositions that trump political correctness and ideology. Morality offers a simple solution to an array of complex problems. Secondly, knowledge and facts are powerful tools for determining which side is worthy of our support. Choosing to support a side that promotes everything that goes against our own common morality makes the least amount of sense. Murder, tyranny, genocide, racism and indiscriminate hatred (or the advocacy of those things) go against our common morality. To most of us, it's incomprehensible to accept any of those things as conducive to the...

    The world of feminism is a strange one. Some of us might see the cause as lost and irrelevant, while others might see it as an essential part of equality. There may have been a time when feminism served its purpose in North America, but it's difficult to justify its need today, especially since most of the archaic laws that barred women from doing basic things have been abolished. Since women won the right to vote and become CEOs, modern feminism seems to have deteriorated into mindless sophistry. From advocating for free contraception to complaining about "cat calling" and exaggerating...

Now, no pun intended, it is a twisted political platform that discriminates against women who don’t adhere to a malformed stereotype of what progressives deem as worthy of their ‘cause’. Today’s feminist cults pick and choose whom they defend, they maliciously incite discord and tarnish lives with imagined...

Ted Cruz (R-TX) noted an intriguing parallel. America's high unemployment, troubled foreign policy and disenchantment with the president looks a whole lot like 1979 all over again - when President Jimmy Carter led the country into malaise. Fortunately, we had a conservative hero back then who was more than willing to step up and steer America back on course. Cruz believes we are about to experience this same reversal.

    Conservatism is the Ramones at CBGB – loud, fast and alive. In contrast, liberalism is the headliner at a state fair concert. It’s Foghat, serenading its anesthetized fans as America slow rides into decline. Back in the 70s, the Ramones put a steel-toed boot into the behind of a fat, flabby rock 'n roll world that has lost its way. That's what conservatives are doing today to American politics and culture. And the dinosaur rockers of the status quo hate it. But some things have changed. Back in the 70’s, it was alienated young people leading the way, yet today’s...

    I received a response from the very person that inspired me to write “An Angry Republican.” I began to reply and decided that the comments made and my response were worthy of another article, which follows. In accusing me of sounding like an “angry republican”, I am wondering why you automatically assume I am a republican? Why is it that anyone who believes in our free enterprise system, the freedoms guaranteed by our constitution and small government, must always be “angry republicans?”

    On July 7th, the Mississippi GOP Executive Committee certified the results of the June 24th primary run-off, declaring Thad Cochran the winner. Senator McDaniel has not accepted this result, and has refused to concede the election. McDaniel volunteers have been scouring ballot boxes and poll books across Mississippi’s 82 counties .. when they have been allowed access. Approximately two dozen county clerks still refuse to allow the McDaniel camp to examine the records. McDaniel representatives are expressing confidence that they have a case to make, believing they can cast overwhelming doubt on the 7,600 vote margin of victory that the...

    In what appears to be the ultimate modern demonstration of "drinking the Kool-Aid," Republicans across the spectrum seem to have entered a pact in sticking together to defend, and even celebrate, campaign tactics predicated on gross voter fraud and manipulation of minority voters. In fact, given recent campaign finance disclosures, it seems clear some Senate Republican leaders helped pay for the attacks on their own base in Mississippi. One senator, however, has broken the silence and is speaking out: Sen. Ted Cruz, who, ironically, holds an official position with the National Republican Senatorial Committee. Cruz has described the Mississippi...

    I don't think Congress should begin impeachment proceedings against President Obama right now, but I also don't think that considering the idea is "crazy talk." The man has, in my view and that of many others, committed multitudinous impeachable offenses, and we need to strenuously object and bring it to the public's attention every chance we get. The idea of turning our heads and looking the other way is repugnant. Yes, the elections are too close for Republicans to risk impeachment proceedings at this point, unless it became clear that the majority of Americans have the political will for that...
  • O’Malley wouldn’t fulfill Obama request to take immigrants because conservatives might attack them

    Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley wants to be the next President of the United States, and he’s just brazenly hypocritical enough for the job. O’Malley recently won praise from the left with a bleeding heart speech before a group of reporters over the scale of the humanitarian crisis at the southern border. “We are not a country that should send children away and send them back to certain death,” O’Malley said to reporters attending a National Governors Association conference last week. “I believe that we should be guided by the greatest power we have as a people, and that is the...

    They had a term for her, but I've forgotten it. It was a name applied to a person who could not say no to a door-to-door salesman. The one I remember from my brief career selling magazines was totally upfront about her intentions. "I'll buy whatever you're selling," she said. I sold her Esquire and two other subscriptions. Salesmen back then had a name for such people. Today, I would call them conservatives. They, too, will buy anything. The current evidence for this is Edward Klein's latest book, "Blood Feud: The Clintons vs. the Obamas." It has just jumped over...

    The Republican Party has entered a new era of sectarian civil wars on multiple issues that bitterly divide and dangerously threaten the GOP through the 2016 elections and beyond. These intensely emotional and ideological issues create deep fissures in the tectonic plate of Republican politics, pitting warring GOP factions against each other and creating powerful strategic advantages for Democrats. A reverse realignment, which is possible for Democrats in 2016, would be achieved by subtraction if a smaller-tent GOP implodes from within while driving swing voters and demographic wave voters to Democrats.

    Mrs Clinton confused names of political parties in interview with BBC. Said Tories and Conservatives were opponents in Houses of Parliament. Names actually refer to the same party, Labour being the other main party. Gaffe is particularly embarrassing given she was former Secretary of State . ... Clinton suggested that the Conservatives and Tories were opponents, when in fact the two names refer to the same party. The gaffe is particularly embarrassing for Clinton as she used to be Secretary of State, and so is expected to have extensive knowledge of foreign affairs. ... Sales of Mrs Clinton's book have...
