  • Email Leaks Show Conservative Blogger Secretly Working for Hillary Clinton!

    Ouch. This one hurts, personally. Our circle of right-leaning bloggers is a tight-knit group and we rely on each other for help, both with stories and with spreading the word. That trust was recently violated by one of our own. Former British Conservative MP and co-founder of the conservative website Heat Street, Louise Mensch, was revealed by the WikiLeaks hack as a secret supporter of Hillary Clinton. In an email to Clinton crony Michael Kives (which was then forwarded to Clinton’s right-hand man John Podesta), Mensch advises the Clinton team on how to better portray their candidate to the nation.

             Toward the end of his presidency, Calvin Coolidge said of his presumptive successor, Herbert Hoover (who he regularly derided as “Wonder Boy”), “That man has offered me unsolicited advice every day for six years, all of it bad.”          In the aftermath of the 2012 election, the conservative movement is swamped with unsolicited advice, much of it ranging from the bad to the bizarre, to the atrocious.          It comes from consultants whose reputation is built on running losing campaigns, domesticated conservative commentators for the mainstream media, pragmatists who are willing to jettison the principals they’ve never really believed...

    A few minutes into Sunday’s debate Donald Trump’s decade-old crude sexual banter with a reporter from an entertainment show was mentioned by the CNN moderator. Donald again apologized for the comments, and Hillary immediately pounced on Trump’s misogyny, throwing in his alleged racism and Islamophobia. To his credit, Trump ignored her slurs and attacked her record. When Democrat loyalist Martha Raddatz pressed on, Trump let loose with a powerful contrast with Bill’s record of abuse––which Hillary side-stepped.

    Several conservative lawmakers say the election of Donald Trump as president could advance their agenda. Despite Trump's history of liberal policy stances, Republican Study Committee Chairman Bill Flores says that the GOP presidential nominee is embracing key issues in the House GOP's "A Better Way" agenda on the campaign trail. "Donald Trump's been going at it in his own interesting way of doing it ... he talks about repealing and replacing ObamaCare ... he's talking about tax reform. It's not the tax reform in [our agenda], but he's talking about tax reform, so we can sit down and work those...

Trump is a frequent guest on the Hannity and O'Reilly programs. Trump has done at least...

    After voting to proceed to a bill that didn’t exist earlier this week, the Senate has finally produced text of the continuing resolution, a short-term government spending bill. The bill, written behind closed doors by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, was brought to the floor late Thursday afternoon, and for the majority of Senate Republicans, represented their first opportunity to see the text. According to McConnell, senators will have four days (two of them on a weekend) to review the bill before having to cast their votes next week. As far as conservative priorities go, the bill is a failure....

It is difficult to identify any issue that she was not on the right side of, typically years or decades before others rallied beside her. She wrote or spoke out on nearly every controversial American political matter, and the conservative movement today is based largely on work that she did five, ten, twenty, and even sixty years ago. Though we grieve her passing, she leaves us with a legacy that will...

    Leftism has been on life support for fifty years. The Republican landslide in the 1966 midterm election was recognized by everyone at the time as a massive rejection of the agenda and the politics of the left. The reasons were clear. The War on Poverty produced race riots and idiocies like "Welfare Strikes." Having achieved civil rights, militant blacks were now demanding "Black Power." Affirmative action was so clearly discrimination that there were few serious minds who could coherently defend this vile incarnation of state-mandated bigotry. The left's approach to foreign threats was precisely as it is today: put in...

It remains relatively stationary, fixed to a spot just to the Right of the Progressives. When they are not refining the narrow differences they have with the Left, they are expanding the list of people to their Right that are no longer welcome in the club. Official Conservatism™ holds its audience in contempt, preferring to focus on itself and its peculiar aesthetic.

In some the toughest criticism leveled at Democrats, Commissioner Lee E. Goodman said that the attack started once the Tea Party changed American politics in the 2010 election and now dominates the politics of the Left. "It has triggered a very aggressive movement by people to amend the First Amendment, left intellectuals have placed it on the table," Goodman said on Boston's Howie Carr show.

Indeed, the charge of compromising on principle is explicitly levied at Republican politicians and members of the Republican "establishment" who support Trump.

The mood was decidedly dour as attendees spoke — from the main stage, at their tables, and over adult beverages — in disbelieving tones about the state of the presidential race and the inadequacies of their party’s nominee, Donald Trump. The event offered a unique window into how conservative activists are coping with 2016, and how they might hope to pick up the...

    "By Ted Cruz not supporting the nominee, he's exempted himself from real conservatives," he said. "No voter gives a crap about what Ted Cruz does. The only person this hurts is Ted Cruz..." "Ted Cruz thinks he's Ronald Reagan. The problem is he's not anything near Reagan in terms of being an inspiring, likable figure," Stone said. "He's a dumb son of a bitch who thinks he's smarter than everybody else." "He's a despicable human being," he added

    Even some diehard loyalists say he needs to set aside lingering bitterness and get behind the GOP nominee. They volunteered for Ted Cruz, gave him campaign money and still adore the Texas senator. But now it’s time, say even some of his longtime loyalists, for Cruz to finally endorse Donald Trump. Cruz, who will address the Republican National Convention on Wednesday, remains one of the GOP’s most prominent holdouts, refusing to back his presidential primary rival even as most other Trump critics have come around — if only with their noses plugged.

    I believe our world is on fire and the flames are licking at our feet. Because this is how I see things, if it were up to me I would grab the NeverTrump “Oh so much more conservative than thou” crowd and throw them around like a rag doll. They have put my family and my country in great danger with their selfish antics and insistence upon backing some non-existent, purely utopian, conservative warrior over Donald Trump, a man who is more than capable of doing the job. These quislings would rather see America’s destruction, by planning to actively campaign...

    Donald Trump, in the wake of last week’s deadly attack on Dallas police and a fresh wave of protests over police-involved shootings, voiced his full-throated support Monday for America’s law enforcement and declared himself the “law and order candidate.” The presumptive Republican presidential nominee put himself foursquare behind police at a combustible time in the relationship between law enforcement and the communities they serve. Speaking at an address in Virginia Beach originally billed as a veterans policy speech, Trump opened by discussing the deep challenges police face. “We will always stand with you,” Trump said. He compared the atmosphere to...

  • Theresa May: Cutting EU migration will have to wait (She doesn't get it)

    Voters will have to wait before migration can begin to be cut despite Britain deciding to leave the European Union, Theresa May has warned. The Home Secretary, who is the front-runner in the Conservative leadership election, promises to reform the EU’s rules on “free movement” of people, which currently allow an unlimited number of migrants to move to the UK to live and work. However, she stops short of promising to abolish free movement altogether, warning that it will “take time” before the numbers of immigrants come down. The issue of cutting migration is one of the critical battlegrounds in...
