    Allies of Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) are now targeting conservative legend Phyllis Schlafly, a leading grassroots anti-establishment voice for half a century, because Schlafly endorsed billionaire businessman Donald Trump for president in the 2016 GOP primary. ..snip For the first time here, the inside story of Schlaflys battle for survivalincluding exclusive interviews with her, her daughter whos working against her, and several of the others involvedwill be told. In dueling Breitbart interviews, both Schlafly and Cori detail how painful this has been for both of themand how its torn apart one of Americas leading conservative families.

    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 Tour--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, Tour 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." Tour 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...

    The political establishment on the right is mostly ignorant of the constitutional provisions that enable political stands to be taken, or, they just dont care. Its 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...

    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 Rushs program yesterday officially crossed the line. When I think about Rushs last year or so on air, Im 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...

    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,...

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 didnt 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...

    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...

    Members of the White middle class, American patriots that continue to sustain the values of our country, have been attacked for years by the conservative establishment. They have discovered that there is no difference in ideology between the Republican and Democrat hierarchy; that the elites of both parties lie continually to the citizenry. They have come to realize that the political landscape consists of corporate entities and Soros-like billionaires, shaping the future of our nation contrary to the wishes of the electorate. Congress itself is composed of a self-styled nobility, convinced that the American people should be permitted to offer...

Romney won only the states he was supposed to win; nothing more. His attitude that looking good but losing was better than appealing to conservatives chased some 4 million conservative voters away. He followed George W. Bushs stupid lead and did not fight back against Harry Reids lies about his failing to pay his taxes.

However, Schlafly stood by her position in an interview with WorldNetDaily today, even mocking the Cruz campaigns failure to win support from a plurality of evangelical Republican voters in many of the early primary states: The amazing thing is, Cruz based his campaign on courting the evangelicals, and even the evangelicals voted for Trump! Trump has got the energy to punch the kingmakers in the nose and take the selection...

Even southern Evangelicals, the most conservative of the conservative, voted in the main forloud mouthed New Yorker. Why has the word conservative become powerless to motivate Republican voters? The image below should provide a clue. The US middle class is shrinking. In 1979 it made up 60% of the population. Today it is less than 50%, and it continues to shrink.

    Only one Republican candidate has a record of doing exactly what he says he's going to do. In an earlier time, this was widely understood as integrity, the unimpeachable surety for pledges made on the campaign trail. And, only one Republican candidate passionately, genuinely, and faithfully, pursues the golden precepts of constitutional liberty which are the only safeguards of our pursuit of happiness within the judicious bounds of the civil society. Ted Cruz is a champion of economic, social, and religious liberty such as has not been seen since the Reagan revolution. While his emphasis on religious liberty and unabashed...

    As part of my ongoing Trump campaign biography, I thought it would be interesting to see what so-called "conservatives" had to say about Sarah Palin in 2008. Turns out, it's not much different than what they have said about Trump (i.e., hatred): Remember how the so-called conservative media treated Sarah Palin in 2008? Charles Krauthammer wrote, with Palin, the case against Obama evaporates. Palins choice, he claimed, negates the theme of readiness to assume the office. Referring to her as a wing-nut candidate, Krathammer wrote of Palins inevitable liabilities due to the fact that any unvetted neophyte has issues, such...

He invoked the memory of the late President Ronald Reagan, saying he acknowledged the countrys fears and frustration in 1980 but didnt exploit them. Rubio is trailing Trump in Florida polling.

The exceptions are Ted Cruz's home state of Texas (where there is conflicting polling evidence) and perhaps, if you cling to the pre-Nevada conventional wisdom about Trump's organizational weakness in caucus states, Minnesota.

He's too extreme and we need someone who can draw independents to win, and, once elected, unite us in bipartisan action. He just isn't as handsome as Rubio, they say.

Earlier today, Christie took her advice. A few hours later, Fiorina did the same thing. Sadly, however, Ben Carson has done the exact opposite. Instead of suspending his campaign, the famed neurosurgeon left for South Carolina yesterday evening. Unbelievably enough, he did...
  • Similarities Between Traditional Conservatives And Feminists

    Tradcons and feminists have more in common than either would care to confront. Browsing popular alt-right outposts, I’ve found that a significant number of them — not all; I don’t mean this to be a sweeping indictment of the tradcon right — share with feminists a misunderstanding of sex differences and of the functioning of the sexual market (hint: it’s transactional in nature, and sneering at the messenger won’t change that fact).
  • The Conservative Case Against Marco Rubio

    Now that Marco Rubio appears to be rising in the polls, more members of the establishment are trying to convince voters that although they are supporting him, he really is profoundly conservative. Looking at Rubio's Liberty Score rating of 79% it's clear that he is indeed more conservative than most other members of the establishment, but that doesn't make him the most principled and electable conservative in the race. Additionally, the very fact alone that the establishment is rallying around Rubio should give conservatives reason to pause. When is the last time you saw the GOP's establishment and their friends...

    It’s a new morning in America, time to come out of the weeds, to join forces against the digital fairytale of the globalists working to bring down Western Society The lay of the land was laid bare in Iowa last night: No matter what the progressives instruct the mainstream media to say, conservatism is alive and well in battered America. Conservatives reopened the steel barred door letting through the masses, and it will be up to the masses and not the high-handed media to keep the movement going to restore America to what she was before Obama began his unsolicited...

    A lot of people are very afraid of Donald Trump. His success will come at their expense because power in politics is a zero sum commodity. What one side gains is always at the expense of the other. Every day we are presented with twisted and convenient definitions of conservatism from those who desperately don’t want to be on the losing side. To them, changing one’s mind and acknowledging the value of conservative positions has become a sign of insincere conservatism. They echo the liberal line about Lincoln not being so great because he, “Came late” to the idea of...

    The conservative movement is starting to look a lot like Syria. Baited, taunted, mocked by Fox News, Donald Trump told Roger Ailes what he could do with his Iowa debate, and marched off to host a Thursday night rally for veterans at the same time in Des Moines. Message: I speak for the silent majority, Roger, not you, not Megyn Kelly, not Fox News. Diss me, and I will do fine without Fox.

    Jane Mayer of The New Yorker has a new book out: “Dark Money: The Hidden History of the Billionaires Behind the Rise of the Radical Right.” It’s mostly about those old devils the Koch brothers. Charles and David Koch are billionaires. They own a very big company. They also are very prominent philanthropists, giving hundreds of millions to cancer research, concert halls and other worthy causes. But what makes them hated and feared by progressives such as Mayer is their political work. They help fund some organizations and foundations, some purely educational, some partisan. To listen to the left, they...

    I am a conservative and have been all my life. I don’t need the snot-nosed, elitist pukes at National Review to “help me” out of my error. I support Donald Trump. People like the bunch at National Review have given us sure losers from Tom Dewey to Gerald Ford to the Bushes, Bob Dole, John McCain and Mitt Romney. They have done incalculable damage to America with their pointy headed elitism; now all that stops in November with the election of Donald Trump. That I am beside myself with anger at the nerve of this bunch doesn’t begin to explain...

    Despite those protestations, Ryan has spent his first couple months as Speaker aggressively courting some of the same Freedom Caucus conservatives who forced his predecessor, John Boehner, out of office last fall. The Wisconsin Republican ensured that conservative rebel Rep. Tim Huelskamp (R-Kansas), ostracized for years by Boehner and his allies, won a subcommittee gavel and a coveted spot on the powerful Speaker-aligned panel that picks committee chairmen. He's invited Freedom members to weekly dinners he hosts in the Capitol. And Ryan has made Freedom Caucus Chairman Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), a frequent thorn in Boehner's side, a key member of...

    Gary Bauer, one of America's leading pro-life and pro-family activists, endorsed Ted Cruz on Friday. In doing so, Bauer became one of many evangelical Christian leaders who have thrown their support behind the senator from Texas. Bauer explained: "Ted Cruz is a courageous conservative who has built a consistent record on the issues that matter most. He has fought for religious liberty at home and abroad. He believes all of our children should be welcomed into the world and protected by the law. Ted knows that government is too big and that taxes and regulations are too high. He will...
