    For nearly 100 years, Vocatura’s Bakery has been a New England staple. The family business was started in Westerly, Rhode Island, in 1919 and moved to its current home in Norwich, Connecticut, in 1956. There, the family bakes bread using its six-decade-old industrial oven and serves up pizza—square, but not sicilian—and sandwiches—including one “as long as your forearm”—to members of the community. The bakery has been family-owned and operated since its opening in 1919, and today, it’s run by David Vocatura, Larry Vocatura, Frankie Vocatura, and Richard Vocatura. The foursome still remembers being pushed around the bakery in a hand...

    Plans to move towards the creation of a European army are reportedly being kept secret from British voters until the day after next month’s referendum. Drawn up by the EU’s foreign policy chief, the Global Strategy on Foreign and Security Policy foresees the formation of new European military and operational structures. This first step towards an EU army is supported by Germany and other countries, The Times reports. In 2011, similar proposals were vetoed by Britain, although there were concerns that a loophole could allow nine states to group together to bypass opponents. In an effort to avoid derailing the...

Full title:Glenn Beck Blasts Conservative Critics as ‘Progressives on the Right’; Says Facebook Leans Left Because Conservatives Don’t Use Social Media Glenn Beck fired back today at conservatives who criticized his full-throated defense of Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg. The radio talker dismissed his critics as “progressives on the right” and argued that Facebook skews left simply because more leftwingers use social media. Last week, Beck and 16 other conservatives met with Zuckerberg at a damage control meeting the tech billionaire called following reports from several Facebook whistleblowers that the site’s news curators actively suppress conservative stories in their...

    Facebook announced Monday it was sending employees out for retraining and would discontinue some of its practices as it sought to defend itself against charges of political bias against conservatives. The online giant denied that it’s shown “systematic political bias,” but admitted employees played a bigger role than previously acknowledged in determining what news is highlighted in the trending topics section. Facebook also acknowledged that rogue employees may have unintentionally discriminated against conservative stories or even acted with malice in “isolated improper actions.” In one instance Facebook rejected a story this year about the opening of the annual Conservative Political...

However, he said he would be prepared to meet Trump if he came to Britain ahead of the U.S. election.

    Surprising no-one, Glenn Beck, after joining the recent conservative delegation to Facebook, has defended the social network and its progressive CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, while attacking fellow conservatives for being too demanding of the company. It’s unclear if he’s gunning for a role in their PR department in the wake of The Blaze’s financial difficulties, but even if he isn’t, it’s hard to tell the difference. He’s written a post on Medium as well as his own personal website, given an interview to TIME, and appeared on his own syndicated talk radio show to defend the social network.

Many high-profile Christian teachers are appalled that so many evangelicals have backed a man of considerable moral failings, especially when he demonstrates very limited understanding of or commitment to the Gospel. On the surface, it seems so obvious: Ted Cruz is one of us, so why would evangelicals reject him in favor of Donald Trump? And yet many did. The question is so...

    Activists and leaders in the social conservative movement, after spending most of the past year opposing and condemning Donald J. Trump, are now moving to embrace his candidacy and are joining the growing number of mainstream Republicans who appear ready to coalesce around the party’s presumptive nominee. Though their support for Mr. Trump is often qualified, this change of heart is one of the more remarkable turns in an erratic and precedent-defying Republican campaign. It reflects the sense among many Republicans that, flawed as they may see him, the thrice-married billionaire is preferable to the alternative.

So how can I or my employees be biased against them?" This is the second display of ideological bias to issue from Zuckerberg this year.

    It's a nightmare scenario for Republicans, but conservative billionaire Charles Koch says "it's possible" Hillary Clinton could make a better president than the remaining candidates in the GOP primary. Koch, one of the most influential and controversial forces in Republican politics, said in an exclusive interview with ABC News to air Sunday on "This Week" that he believed Bill Clinton was a better president "in some ways" than George W. Bush. "In other ways, I mean [Clinton] wasn't an exemplar. But as far as the growth of government, the increase in spending," Koch said. "It was 2.5 times [more] under...

    Will this stem the MSM's flood of deserved praise for Prince? It turns out that Touré--better known in these parts as a former spoke in MSNBC's since-cancelled Cycle--is also a Prince biographer, his book published in 2013. Appearing on With All Due Respect today, Touré cited two sources: Prince's former sound engineer, and a member of his band, for the proposition that Prince was a "conservative" and a "Republican." Touré embraced the notion himself, but offered a pejorative notion of what it means to be a conservative: "I am making money, I'm successful, I want this money and this success...
  • Refuting the Establishment: It Wasn’t Constitutional Conservatives that Gave Us Trump

    Conservative Review ^ | 04/21/16 | Jen Kuznicki
    The political establishment on the right is mostly ignorant of the constitutional provisions that enable political stands to be taken, or, they just don’t care. It’s a terrible irony that the Left has been able to own the bubble-gum wrapper version of what our constitutional rights are, and the so-called right sits there delusional about how to respond. One of the political establishment-types I often read is Peter Wehner. I have written many posts about him, to use him as a perfect example of people who grassroots conservatives know to be following the wrong herd. Wehner does not disappoint, as...
  • Rush Limbaugh Has Completely Lost His Way

    Probably no one has earned more leeway from conservative voters and pundits than Rush Limbaugh. Rush has been a tireless force for the conservative movement for decades, and he probably is responsible for a whole lot of conservative Republicans who are currently in office. But thankfulness for past service only goes so far, and Rush’s program yesterday officially crossed the line. When I think about Rush’s last year or so on air, I’m reminded of Marshall Phillipe Petain, one of the most intriguing figures of the twentieth century. Without Petain, the French might not have prevailed over the Germans at...

    Newt Gingrich has been a friend of Donald Trump’s for the past decade. He hasn’t endorsed Mr. Trump’s presidential bid, but they talk frequently. Mr. Trump is anti-left wing and anti-political correctness, Mr. Gingrich says, while acknowledging this: Mr. Trump is not a conservative....

    Accuracy in Academia ^ | April 10, 2016 | Malcolm A. Kline
    In the latest issue of The Chronicle Review, UCLA historian Russell Jacoby offers some insights into the campus diversity craze that are actually refreshing. Jacoby asks, "Should all quarters of society demographically reflect all other quarters?" "Why? Should there be more pacifists in the military? Fewer Indian motel owners?" As well, Jacoby notes: "Inasmuch as academic leftists champion diversity, a certain irony must be signaled. For decades they have poured scorn on 'essentialism' and posited that all identity is 'constructed.' After years of postmodern guff, the arguers reverse themselves: You are your group identity, essentialism, pure and simple." Of course,...

    Republican members block the action, but dang The next time a liberal claims there is no such thing as liberal media bias, all you have to do is ask why this story wasn’t covered outside of Fox News and sites like ours. A man makes an independent film critical of the president, and the Federal Election Commission comes within one vote of punishing him for it. He didn’t coordinate with any candidate or any party. He did it entirely on his own because he had something to say. Yet the FEC, which by law consists of three Democrats and three...

    Conservative Republicans support for Sen. Ted Cruz indicates that the conservative movement is brain dead. If Cruz is the best candidate they can find, then conservatives obviously have nothing to offer. Cruz may be the only Republican presidential aspirant who is dumber than Hillary Clinton.

    Exodus 13:2 Sanctify unto me all the firstborn, whatsoever openeth the womb among the children of Israel, both of man and of beast: it is mine. Oh boy Trump stepped in it again by claiming women should be punished for having abortions. The Conservotocracy had a collectivist cow over the thought feminists would be offended by something a Republican would say. What was worse is he did not celebrate it or make a victim of the woman, but did the unthinkable and made the baby the victim. Perhaps having his fifth grandchild this week made the debate more personal than...

    UK Prime Minister David Cameron issued sharp criticism of the Labour party Wednesday, given the large number of members recently exposed making anti-Semitic comments and the party's unwillingness to take action against them. Video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U3j-qs0U764 n parliament, Mike Freer of the Conservative party asked Cameron if he agrees that all organizations "public and private" should root out anti-Semitism, in a timely statement given the Labour party's recent association with anti-Semitism. "Anti-Semitism is an absolute cancer in our society," responded Cameron, warning that when hatred of Jews grows it's a signal of "many even worse things happening to ethnic groups and...
