    President Trump expressed frustration with Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) for the GOP’s failure to repeal and replace ObamaCare and vowed a “historic” corporate tax cut in a private meeting with conservatives Monday night. The president also expressed support for Pittsburgh Steelers player Alejandro Villanueva, the lone player from his team to stand with his hand on his heart for the national anthem before Sunday's game. The dinner featured a cadre of Washington’s conservative leaders, all of whom remain staunch allies of Trump, including Concerned Women for America CEO Penny Nance, Susan B. Anthony List president Marjorie Dannenfelser, Americans for Prosperity...
  • Will Trump-the-Conservative Overpower Trump-the-Republican?

    Who can with absolute certainty state the name of the ruling party in Washington? Formally, both the Congress and the president belong to the Republicans. Theoretically, the U.S. Supreme Court can also be attributed to the Republican camp. Democrats are content with the role of the opposition. At the same time, it has long been understood that the political division of Republicans and Democrats only exists in places outside of the District of Columbia. In the D.C., the members of the actual ruling party should be labeled Republocrats.It was precisely against the Republocrats that America voted in 2016. America voted...

    I guess now we’re not supposed to be fighting culture wars anymore – man, it’s so hard to keep up with these ever-changing new rules! I’m old enough to remember way back to 2016, before Trump got nominated, and I could have sworn Conservative Inc., was gung-ho for the whole culture war thing. But then Trump actually fought it, taking on the big, soft target that is the spoiled, semi-literate athletes who like to rub their contempt for the flag we love in our faces in the guise of woke wokedness. Now we suddenly discover that fighting back is horribly...
  • Conservative Americans Experience Progressive Identity Politics as Hatred

    National Review ^ | September 21, 2017 | David French
    In the days following Donald Trump’s surprise election win, progressive Columbia University humanities professor Mark Lilla published a thought-provoking, viral essay that took direct aim at identity politics: In recent years American liberalism has slipped into a kind of moral panic about racial, gender and sexual identity that has distorted liberalism’s message and prevented it from becoming a unifying force capable of governing. Lilla’s essay became a book that has sparked debate, withering reviews, and general disdain across wide swathes of the political and academic Left. Yet as I read the attacks on Lilla, I was struck by the extent...
  • Dirty Little Emmy Secret: Trump Supporters Much More Racially Diverse Than Lily-White Television

    According to the latest census figures, white people make up 61.3 percent of the American population. Rounding out those numbers, Hispanics (17.8 percent), blacks (13.3 percent), and Asians (5.7 percent), fill in most of the rest of our glorious melting pot. And yet… The oh-so progressive left-wing television industry, the very same television industry that spent almost every minute of Sunday’s disastrously low-watched Emmy Award Show smugly blasting away at Trump and his supporters as unrepentant racists, looks nothing like America. Not even close. In fact, the broad coalition of Trump’s “racist” supporters is much more racially diverse than the...

    Google Search is found to be extremely biased in favor of climate alarmism and against climate realism. The PGSTN ranges for climate realism and climate alarmism do not even overlap! Some of the most important climate realist domains, including low-controversial judithcurry.com, have such a low PGSTN that they can be considered blacklisted by Google. Google Search is found to be biased in favor of left/liberal domains and against conservative domains with a confidence of 95%. Further, certain hard-Left domains have such a high PGSTN that their standing raises suspicions that they have been hand-picked for prominent placement. Certain respected conservative...

    Assistant Attorney General Kevin Boyd announced that the Trump Administration will not be pursuing charges against former IRS executive Lois Lerner for discriminating against conservative organizations seeking tax-free status from the Agency. While conceding that Lerner's refusal to testify on the grounds it would be self-incriminating was, in effect a "smoking gun," Boyd insisted that "the prosecution of a government functionary for carrying out the wishes of the president would be excessively punitive and set a dangerous precedent. A person entering the ranks of an administration shouldn't have to be second-guessing every decision—is it right, is it wrong, is it...

    Democrats claim that they have always supported equal rights for black Americans and that Republicans are racists who always oppose them. Both claims are flat-out lies. From its founding in 1854, the Republican Party led the fight to end slavery and then eradicate the racist Jim Crow system that held blacks down right up to securing the passage of the 1964 Civil Rights Act. Democrats opposed the Republicans at every turn. The spectacularly untruthful statement below was featured on Democrats.org until 2009. This actual screenshot is, to our knowledge, the only one in existence.

  • Conservatives in America – Like Marranos in Medieval Spain

    Townhall.com ^ | September 5, 2017 | Dennis Prager
    For those unfamiliar with the term, Marranos was the name given to Jews in medieval Spain, especially in the fifteenth century during the Spanish Inquisition, who secretly maintained their Judaism while living as Catholics in public. There is, of course, no Spanish Inquisition in America today – no one is being tortured into confessing what they really believe, and no one is being burned at the stake. But there are millions of Marrano-like Americans: Americans who hold conservative views – especially those who hold to conservative positions on social issues and those who voted for Donald Trump for president. Millions...

    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...

    THE PERSECUTION OF PATRIOT PRAYERDemocrats green-light violence by smearing mainstream group rallying in San Francisco as neo-Nazis. August 25, 2017 Matthew Vadum Democrat politicians like Nancy Pelosi have given their ultra-violent “antifa” allies permission to use physical violence against the Patriot Prayer group rallying in a San Francisco park on Saturday by smearing them as “Nazi sympathizers.” The story of Oregon-based Patriot Prayer is a case study in the power of propaganda in generating leftist mass hysteria. It is also a reaffirmation that everyone has First Amendment rights in America, except for non-leftists. Leftists are already planning riots. One of...

    According to a CBS poll, 73 percent of Americans think our current discourse encourages violence. And 68 percent say it’s getting worse. Leftists call conservatives fascists and racists. Conservatives, in turn, call leftists, well, fascists and racists. Fixing our public dialogue starts with understanding how vitriol hinders, rather than helps, our ability to advance our chosen causes. Viciousness Doesn’t Work When we write and share vicious political arguments, we believe that we’re helping our cause. When liberals accuse conservatives of callousness towards the poor, they intend to persuade Republicans that moral character requires supporting a stronger federal government. Conservatives who...

    Convention of States ^ | August 25th 2017 | Convention of States Project
    There's never been a better time to call a Convention of States. While both Democrat and Republican legislators support limiting the power of the federal government, we've found that states controlled by conservatives are more likely to pass the Convention of States resolution. That's why this article from The Daily Signal is such good news: Republicans now control the governorship and legislature in 26 states and conservative leaders say this trend continues to grow in Republicans’ favor. “Over the last seven years since we have covered state legislatures and state executives pretty extensively, there’s been a significant shift from Democratic-controlled...

    Mercury News ^ | Aug. 25, 2017 | Casey Tolan
    Organizers of two right-wing rallies scheduled for this weekend in San Francisco and Berkeley abruptly called off their events on Friday afternoon, after weeks of blowback from local residents and elected officials. But questions remained about whether protesters would show up anyway, and some local leaders said they still worried violence could erupt. The anticlimactic turnaround started at 3 p.m. on Friday, when Joey Gibson, the founder of the conservative group Patriot Prayer and the organizer of a rally schedule for Saturday in San Francisco’s Crissy Field, started a Facebook Live broadcast to announce his event wouldn’t go forward. Gibson said that...

    The anti-President Donald Trump phenomena is a uniquely unparalleled mass hysteria that, to my knowledge, has never been witnessed before in America history. Vastly larger than what was done to Presidents George W. Bush and Ronald Reagan, we’ve never seen such a massive pre-emptive attempt to bring down a legitimately-elected president – before he even took office or did anything as president. Even today, seven months after his inauguration, the “elite” still do not understand how a man they despise could be elected and how he has kept his base of supporters despite the unrelenting demonization and smearing by the...

    In this world we may have knowledge or repose but we may not have both. The human condition is a series of decisions; we either deal with them or circumstances deal with us. Once a bell is rung in our presence we cannot un-ring it. All of these apply to our relationship to the Drudge Report. For years we have looked to Matt Drudge and his Drudge Report as a place where we could get some actual news. During the presidential election cycle last year this was especially true. While the foaming-at-the-mouth liars in the media churned out their disinformation...

    The biggest, and most telling, example of this is Leach’s realization that one reason many conservative women don’t identify as “feminist” is because of “what they perceive to be the left’s ‘victimhood culture.’” Leach is beside herself. “There wasn't any conversation about or acknowledgement of the ways it’s hard” for women to “chase their goals,” Leach complains. These women were ignoring the “harsh realities of being a woman!” Leach then spends a long paragraph telling us what these “harsh realities” are: wage gaps, cyberbullying, more wage gaps, Donald Trump. How could these women, who say they care about women’s equality,...

    Conservative Millennial Women Are Here For Female Empowerment—Just Don't Call Them Feminists Recently I spent two days at the hub of conservatism in Washington, D.C. Nope, not the White House, but the Heritage Foundation for the Network of Enlightened Women’s National Conference—also known as NeW—where a group of college-aged conservative females gathered to discuss and learn about Republican policy and leadership. And yes, Kellyanne Conway was there. As a 24-year-old liberal woman who cried watching Hillary Clinton lose the election live at New York’s Javits Center, this wasn’t a room I ever thought I’d find myself in, and my preconceived...

    Not long ago, I got to know a very interesting person, who turned out to be a typically very confused liberal democrat. They can't hide all that anger and confusion behind their favorite slogan of "conservatives are full of hate!" for long. It's heartbreaking to watch such promise and talent and basic decency become wasted and used. Once, during a rare lucid, calm moment, he said to me that no one, the government or any powers that be, cared anything about him, because in the scheme of things, he was just a 'little fish'. He couldn't take any more facts...
