  • Seven Things Conservatives Should Be Thankful For

    If you listen to the nattering nabobs of social media negativity, and you shouldn’t, you might get the false impression that our dreams of a conservative future are imploding. You would be wrong. There is a lot for conservatives to be thankful for, and we’re winning. To paraphrase noted tax reform advocate Wesley Snipes in Passenger 57, always bet on red. No. 1: Be Thankful That Hillary Is Not Our President. Every day, it is a joy to awaken, unlike Hillary Clinton, without a hangover. Oh yes, and also to awaken knowing that Felonia von Pantsuit is not, and will...

    Fox News announced on Tuesday that it was hiring conservative commentator Mark Levin to host a new show on Sundays at 10 pm, drawing the network ever closer to its pro-Trump base and further protecting it from future competition on the right. “It’s clearly another step in Fox News channel’s evolution to a more Trump-friendly series of programming,” said Dan Shelley, the executive director of the Radio Television Digital News Association. “It’s right in their current wheelhouse.” Levin, who arguably ranks just behind Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity for influence in the world of conservative talk radio hosts, has been...
  • Citing Virginia Election Losses, Conservatives Demand Congress Follow Through on Promises

    Conservatives are calling for Republicans in Congress to fulfill their campaign promises by supporting President Donald Trump’s spending proposal and to not enact amnesty in a year-end deal with Democrats. A letter released Monday and signed by 44 conservative leaders explains that Virginia is “in ruins” after Republican losses at both the statewide and local level earlier this month. The leaders warn that the Republican majority in the House could be in jeopardy next. “Your consultants and managers are out of excuses—and your conservative grassroots are running out of both patience and time,” the letter states. “So stop panicking and...

    ANNAPOLIS — In 2009, former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley closed the visitor center at the Sideling Hill cut, the symbolic gateway to Western Maryland, as a cost-saving effort. Some saw the move as personal, or at least confirmation of how the former governor felt about the state’s rural counties. “We had only two visitor centers that were closed in the entire state under O’Malley,” said William Valentine, an Allegany County commissioner. “It wasn’t too hard to figure out what happened.” Current Gov. Larry Hogan reopened the Sideling Hill Visitor Center in 2015. Earlier this year when Hogan took the stage...

    Many conservatives have a loose relationship with facts. The right-wing denial of what most people think of as accepted reality starts with political issues: As recently as 2016, 45 percent of Republicans still believed that the Affordable Care Act included “death panels” (it doesn’t). A 2015 poll found that 54 percent of GOP primary voters believed then-President Obama to be a Muslim (…he isn’t). Then there are the false beliefs about generally accepted science. Only 25 percent of self-proclaimed Trump voters agree that climate change is caused by human activities. Only 43 percent of Republicans overall believe that humans have...

    LA Times ^ | November 5, 2017 | Steven F. Hayward
    A year into the Trump era, President Trump is living up to his advance billing as a “black swan” event for American politics — disrupting everything he touches. He has opened divisions and brought chaos to both parties, and the turmoil is not going to abate with the midterm election next year, no matter what the result. The GOP may never be the same, while a lurch further to the populist left by Democrats might be a formula for additional electoral disaster. The culture wars have gone thermonuclear, with institutions such as the NFL suddenly embroiled in heightened political controversy....

    The White House on Saturday disparaged the legacies of the only two living Republican presidents to precede Donald Trump, after reports that both men castigated Trump in interviews last year and refused to vote for him. Former president George H.W. Bush mocked then-candidate Trump as a “blowhard” and voted for a Democratic president, while the younger Bush worried aloud that Trump would destroy the idea of a Republican president in all but name, according to “The Last Republicans,” which is scheduled to go on sale later this month. The White House responded after quotes from the book were published on...

    “It wasn’t [Obama]!” Boehner said. “It was modern-day media, and social media, that kept pushing people further right and further left. People started to figure out … they could choose where to get their news. And so what do people do? They choose places they agree with, reinforcing the divide,” added Boehner, who resigned in September 2015 after facing several GOP protests. He then raised his accusing finger at Levin and said: “I always liked Rush [Limbaugh]. When I went to Palm Beach I would always meet with Rush and we’d go play golf. But you know, who was that...
  • Rand Paul: 'Conservatives Get Outfoxed and Bamboozled by the D.C. Swamp'

    PJ Media ^ | 10-27-2017 | Michael van der Galien
    In a fiery column for The Hill, Rand Paul takes on the "swamp creatures" in Washington, D.C., who tried to pass "tax cuts" that would actually raise taxes for the middle and upper-middle classes. When Senator Paul first spoke against the Republican tax plan, his party's leadership attacked him for "not supporting tax cuts." Not true, Paul writes -- he was trying to make the plan better: "The D.C. swamp has paid-for toadies on the left and the right. From the right come cries that I am opposing the tax plan. Far from it. I am trying to make it...

    I’m a political junkie. Every day I read The Washington Post and The New York Times, among other media giants, with great interest and appreciation. Here in conservative rural America, Trump is ascendant. I was loafing in a booth at the coffee shop Saturday morning, and my friend Mark said something like, “Hey Bob, if you want to understand why rural conservatives like Trump, watch the speech he gave at the Values Voters Summit.” Doing my best to understand how my conservative friends might read Trump’s speech, I read. I contrasted Trump’s messaging with how rural conservatives often view Democratic...
  • S.E. Cupp Says She Was Sexually Intimidated by Coworkers... and a SENATOR

    On Thursday night, conservative commentator S.E. Cupp devoted her entire one-hour "Unfiltered" program on HLN to talk about sexual harassment. She recalled three experiences of her own that make clear that the #MeToo movement certainly is of value. Although she said she could've gone on for hours and hours with dozens of examples, Cupp decided to keep it short by giving "just" three. "One," she said, "an anchor grabbed my ass." Some men may think that doing so is "funny," but if these stories make one thing clear, it's that to women, it is anything but. It frightens them and...

    s someone who voted for Barack Obama twice, supported the Affordable Care Act, and could be persuaded to vote for the right kind of single-payer system, I've found the entire health-care debate over the past several months deeply depressing. That's no doubt why my first instinct was to cheer when reading a recent rant against the right from an editor at The Huffington Post. The transparently titled opinion column, "I Don't Know How to Explain to You That You Should Care About Other People," is a perfect expression of our political moment — in its utter exasperation at those on...

    On the same day that Rush Limbaugh read my recent column on air, YouTube — in the dead of night — demonetized a large percentage of videos on my channel. My YouTube channel has been around for years with many recordings of very boring village meetings highlighting local Chicago-area corruption. Recently, I started doing reaction videos and comedy and gained a bunch of new subscribers and it's been fun. I don't swear (certainly no "F" words) and there's nothing really controversial unless you count making fun of gender-confused rabid leftists with blue hair "controversial." Yesterday, October 5, after Rush read...

    Faux Panels Declare ‘Hate’ There is a rumor going around the California State Capitol that the Legislature is about to vote on a ban of humor in the state, because every time someone laughs at something funny, it is apparently at the expense of someone else’s feelings. If this sounds silly, the Senate hearing held Tuesday, ostensibly on “hate speech,” was even more nonsensical.

    As I write this, there is only a small handful of facts, or alleged facts, that all of the talking heads in Big Media seem to agree upon regarding "the largest mass shooting in American history." First, 64 year-old Stephen Paddock, a white man and resident of Nevada, appears to have acted alone when he opened fire upon over 22,000 country music concert attendees in Las Vegas. Second, Paddock had a lot of weaponry, guns of various sorts, in the hotel room that he used as a sniper's nest. Third, Paddock is a relatively wealthy man who enjoyed gambling and...

    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...

    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...
