  • ‘Conform or Else’: Democrats Bully Conservative Women, Minorities

    The Washington Times ^ | July 26, 2017 | Tammy Bruce
    On Monday, the Democrats were really excited about their new slogan, “A Better Deal: Better Skills, Better Jobs, Better Wages.” Widely ridiculed for being idiotic, here’s a slogan they could have chosen, which is much more honest about the current liberal agenda: “A Bully’s Deal: If You Ever Think For Yourself and Don’t Conform, We’ll Ruin Your Life.” This slogan has been operational for a generation. It is shouted at conservative women, gays and other minorities because, you see, today’s Democrats cannot afford to have anyone in any of their protected classes get the idea that they can think for...
  • Pew: Liberals ‘Far More’ Intolerant of Opposite-Party Friends Than Conservatives, Moderates

    A new Pew Research poll shows that nearly half (47%) of liberals say a friend’s support of President Donald Trump would put a “strain” on their friendship, matching the percentage who say they have no close friends who are Trump supporters. In the new survey, Pew finds that Republicans and Republican sympathizers are far more tolerant of opposite-party friends than are liberal Democrats: “Liberal Democrats are about evenly divided between saying say their friendship would be strained (47%) if a friend said they voted for Trump and saying it would not have any effect (51%).” “Far more conservative and moderate...

    Call me paranoid if you like, but I’m simply quoting what Tim Gill, the foremost LGBT political donor says in his own words: “We're going into the hardest states in the country,” he declares. “We're going to punish the wicked,” by which he means Christian conservatives. In short, if you will not comply with LGBT activism, be it as a minister or as a businessperson, you will be punished. That is Gill’s goal, and to deny it is to be in denial.According to Rolling Stone magazine, which interviewed Gill last month, he is the “Megadonor Behind the LGBTQ Rights Movement”...

    Sayet’s post today is a marvelous explanation for why he supports President Trump. At the end of President Trump’s first six months today, it is well worth the read. Sayet explains to his friends what President Trump is doing that is so important and critical at this stage in US History. Here are some quotes from the article: We Right-thinking people have tried dignity. There could not have been a man of more quiet dignity than George W. Bush as he suffered the outrageous lies and politically motivated hatreds that undermined his presidency. We tried statesmanship. Could there be another...
  • The Ongoing Frustration of Trump's Conservative Critics

    The frustration of many Trump critics on the right, or MTCRs, is palpable and growing. Some are becoming more elitist by the day and utterly out of touch with rank-and-file conservatives, which is a particularly bitter pill to swallow because they believe they are the main arbiters of what conservatism means. Some are obviously disgusted with everything about Trump — his demeanor, his tweets, his combativeness, his bigger-than-life personality, his egotism and tons more. Their revulsion blinds them to anything positive. They are so invested in Trump's failure that they can't stomach rooting for him even when he's advancing conservative...

    On the subject of cycles, Warren Buffett likes to talk about “the natural progression, the three I’s.” As he put it to Charlie Rose in 2008, those I’s are “the innovators, the imitators and the idiots.” One creates, one enhances — and one screws it all up. Then, presumably, the cycle starts afresh. Buffett was describing the process that led to the 2008 housing and financial crises. But he might as well have been talking about the decline of the conservative movement in America. I was reminded of this again last week, on news that the Fox News host Sean...

    For the second time in a week, Pope Francis has removed a conservative Vatican powerhouse who opposed his warming of Roman Catholic orthodoxy.The Vatican announced Saturday that the Pope would not be renewing the five-year appointment of Cardinal Gerhard Ludwig Müller as head of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, basically the Vatican’s doctrinal watchdog. Muller, a 69-year-old was appointed by fellow German Pope Benedict XVI. As Cardinal Ratzinger, Benedict had also headed that Congregation under Pope John Paul II.The ouster of Cardinal Muller is one of this Pope’s most important decisions yet since his 2013 election...

    Breitbart ^ | 06/30/17 | Dr Susan Berry
    American conservative leaders welcomed President Donald Trump’s tweet suggesting to Republicans that they immediately repeal Obamacare first and then work together to replace it later. On a media conference call Friday morning, national conservative group leaders overwhelmingly applauded Trump’s suggestion and rebuked GOP leaders for introducing Obamacare “replacement” legislation that they say simply continues former President Barack Obama’s disastrous healthcare reform. The leaders made clear to Republicans that they hold power in both chambers of Congress largely because the conservative base elected them to repeal Obamacare and put GOP leaders on notice that their draft healthcare bill is costing them...

    Sen. Mazie Hirono (D., Hawaii) called Supreme Court Justices Neil Gorsuch, Samuel Alito, and Clarence Thomas "the three horsemen of the apocalypse" on MSNBC on Monday as she decried President Donald Trump's executive order temporarily banning travel from six nations in the Middle East and North Africa. Hirono criticized the justices for wanting to lift the injunction against Trump's executive order, which the other six justices agreed to review. Hirono called the order a "Muslim ban," despite the fact that it does not affect about 88 percent of the world's Muslims. "This is like the three horsemen of the apocalypse,...

    WASHINGTON (AP) - Repairing the nation's crumbling roads and bridges was supposed to be an area ripe for bipartisan compromise between congressional Democrats and President Donald Trump. Instead, Democrats are panning Trump's proposed $1 trillion overhaul and even Republicans are balking at some aspects of the emerging plan. The White House's self-proclaimed "Infrastructure Week" began with Trump appearing Monday with aviation officials and some prominent GOP lawmakers to announce plans to privatize the nation's air traffic control system and separate operations from the Federal Aviation Administration.

    A good friend just asked me this morning, "What would have happened if a conservative were to have tried to shoot Democrat legislators?" He went on to say that all hell would have broken loose in the media and across the country. Conservatives, however, have not had violent, in-the-street demonstrations and calls for reprisal.

    The spotlight has been on President Trump's legal jeopardy. But inside the small circle of top Republicans who advise this White House, there's increasing concern that future political problems are stacking up. One of the oldest (and most trusted) hands in America told a large group of CEOs in New York City on Friday: "Simply put, Trump has lost control of his presidency. He still has all the power of the office, but for someone who spent a portion of his life in real estate litigation, he shows once again he has not learned the first rule of legal combat:...

    CNBC ^ | June 5, 2017 | Jeff Cox
    President Donald Trump appears ready to remake the Federal Reserve in an image that will be considerably different than what investors have known for many years. The president is prepared to nominate Randal Quarles and Marvin Goodfriend to two of three vacancies at the central bank, according to multiple press accounts that have not been disputed by the administration. Quarles likely would assume the role vacated by Daniel Tarullo to oversee the nation's banking system. White House officials did not respond to a CNBC request for comment. Should Trump nominate the two men and they receive confirmation, it will represent...

China and India (huge emitters) would not even have to begin to consider limits before 2030, but meanwhile the international bureaucrats would get their hooks deeper into the USA and every country. President Trump says NO to the global bureaucracy.]

    Plagiarism allegations the latest attack on the would-be DHS official Allegations of academic plagiarism are the latest weapon the left-wingers of the mainstream media are using in an effort to take down Milwaukee County, Wisc., Sheriff David Clarke. The Left’s politics of personal destruction played no small role in the defeat at the polls last November of Maricopa County, Ariz., Sheriff Joe Arpaio (R). More recently, the Left played a role in the departure of top-rated Fox News host Bill O’Reilly, and now that they smell conservative blood in the water, the character assassins at the George Soros-funded Media Matters...

    When we hear the name Le Pen in relation to French politics it’s most often a reference to Marine Le Pen, the losing candidate in the recent presidential elections. But this is something of a family business and the latest headline has to do with her niece, Marion Marechal-Le Pen. She was the youngest woman elected to the legislature since the French Revolution and has been widely viewed as more of a rival to her aunt than a teammate because of her distinctly more socially conservative views. Her time in the political spotlight is over now, however, at least for...

    Unfortunately, broadcast television networks today are not interested in appealing to the massive Trump electorate Despite healthy ratings, ABC promptly cancelled Tim Allen’s popular sitcom, Last Man Standing this week. The show was a successful part of the ABC line-up for six years. While some media reports claim that ABC cancelled the show due to poor ratings, the truth is that the program was the second highest rated comedy and the third highest rated “scripted” show on the network. In fact, during the final years of the show, Last Man Standing drew an impressive average of 8.1 million viewers each...

    As Fox News Sidles Left, Sinclair Broadcasting Moves In Broadcasters you likely never heard of are possibly attempting to move in on Fox News and take some of their conservative viewership. Fox News has potential competition from another right-leaning media network. Sinclair Broadcasting is buying up 42 of Tribune Media’s broadcast stations for nearly $4 billion dollars, raising speculation that the conglomerate is prepared to compete with Fox News for their Republican and Libertarian audience. With Tribune’s 42 TV stations, Sinclair will cover more than 70 percent of households in the United States. It will become the largest local broadcast...
