    Commentary ^ | 30 Nov 2018 | Abe Greenwald
    In the current issue of Vanity Fair, there’s an article by Nancy Jo Sales headlined “‘They Say We’re White Supremacists’: Inside the Strange World of Conservative College Women.” Sales profiles conservative young women at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and they’re well worth hearing out. These women think in interesting and nuanced ways at a time when most political activists are fleeing to the extremes. And the things they say don’t fit neatly on popular platforms that thrive on outrage. On Donald Trump: “Morally, I don’t stand with him,” says 19-year-old Cammie McMahan. “He’s not moral,” says...
  • Conservative boycott of Twitter can't and won't work, here's why

    The Hill ^ | 11/30/18 | Joe Concha
    Conservatives are increasingly vowing to quit Twitter for what they say is censorship of prominent voices. The problem with conservatives or any like-minded group quitting a social media platform and all joining a new one is simple: Echo chambers are absolutely no fun. Ever hear of the saying, "... to own the libs?" How about, "... to own the cons." These are prominent sayings on Twitter, and embody much of what the platform is about: embarrassing, or beating or berating the other side. Invariably it's a combination of the three. So if conservatives left Twitter to go somewhere else, would...

    White liberals behave with less competence around black people “in an effort to get along,” according to a new study by a Yale professor. Yale Insights offered the following summary of the study by Cydney H. Dupree, assistant professor of organizational behavior at the Yale School of Management: “White Liberals Present Themselves as Less Competent in Interactions with African-Americans.” It’s about language The study further suggests that white Americans who hold liberal socio-political views tend to use words that make them appear less competent when they’re around racial minorities — but no significant differences were seen in conservatives’ word selections,...

    Conservative commentator Jesse Kelly, who was banned from Twitter last week, said on Tuesday that he was actually trying to avoid getting kicked off of the social media platform. "I honestly have no idea," Kelly told Hill.TV's Buck Sexton when asked why he was banned from Twitter. "The truth is, I understand how sensitive Twitter is. I understand that they are run by leftists, and they're trying to run off people on the right, so knowing that I'm fairly careful with it," Kelly said. "Especially because it was a big tool I used to promote my show, to promote my...

    Whether you know it or not, if you’re a conservative you are a conservationist. Why? Because you believe in conserving things. Along with liberals, conservatives likely think it is a good idea to conserve clean water and clean air. We might even argue that it’s wise to conserve an owl, a tree and a whale once in a while. But what often distinguishes conservatives from our progressive brothers and sisters is that we believe in conserving not just the material but also the moral and the intellectual. We believe in conserving ideas. Conservatives hold there are certain ideas that are...

    About three and a half years ago, the NDP surprised many in Alberta and across the country by winning a majority government in a province that had never elected the NDP and had been governed by the Progressive Conservative Party for 44 years. With about six months to go before the start of the next provincial election in Alberta, we surveyed 800 Albertans at the end of October and asked them to share their views on politics in the province. Here’s what we found: THE UNITED CONSERVATIVE PARTY LEADS BY 15 AMONG COMMITTED VOTERS BUT 26% OF ALBERTANS SAY THEY...

    If Christian and conservative Americans do not sufficiently rouse themselves and get to the polls this time around, in order to make the crucial difference, nearly all 250 years of our existence will have been just a pitiful waste of time You probably don’t remember Captain Arthur J. Jackson. At 19 he was ‘PFC Jackson’, a kid Marine in World War II’s South Pacific Theatre on Peleliu Island. With his outfit pinned down by intense enemy fire and his brother Marines with their hands full just surviving, Jackson’s sergeant asked him if he could secure a point in a trench...

    Former President Barack Obama has been traveling across the country campaigning on behalf of Democratic candidates. During a campaign rally for Sen. Bill Nelson (D-FL) in Miami on Friday, Obama became unhinged over conservatives and what we say will happen if Democrats take power."In 2010, they said Bill and I were setting up death panels to kill your grandma. Remember that? In 2014 they said Ebola is going to kill all of us, shut the borders," Obama explained. "In 2016, it was Hillary’s emails. They were all wound up about that. Now, in 2018, they’re telling you the existential threat...

    Conservative Firing Line ^ | 11/3/2018 | Joe Newby
    This is CNN… On Friday, the outlet once dubbed the “least-trusted” name in network news for its rabid anti-Trump and anti-Republican bias, published an op-ed suggesting that women engage in a “sex strike” before the midterm election, no doubt to help Democrats. “It’s time for a revolution,” wrote Wednesday Martin. “At the polls, and in the bedroom. And in our understanding of who women are, sexually and otherwise. Given the tight interweaving of economic and political power with sexual entitlement, female sexual autonomy has never been more urgent, and women’s sexual pleasure has never been more political. Let’s consider what...

    President Donald Trump denounced the media on Friday for trying to pin the recent bomb scare on him and his supporters. “We have seen an effort by the media in recent hours to use the sinister actions of one individual to score political points against me and the Republican party,” Trump said. The president commented on the news at his rally in Charlotte, North Carolina after authorities apprehended the Florida man suspected of sending pipe bombs to prominent Democrats. Trump condemned political violence and called for an end to the politics of personal destruction, especially from the media. “Political violence...

    Some conservatives have been peddling smears against missing Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi in an effort to cushion President Donald Trump from blowback over his handling of the situation with Saudi Arabia, The Washington Post reported Thursday. Efforts to raise questions about Khashoggi have made their way to Capitol Hill, where a group of House Republicans have been circulating articles from conservative outlets that tie the missing journalist to the Muslim Brotherhood and Osama bin Laden, the Post reported. Among those circulating such claims is Donald Trump Jr., who last week retweeted an unsubstantiated claim insinuating Khashoggi is a terrorist sympathizer....

The Protest that was the legacy of ex-President Barack Obama is no longer out in the town park or on the street, it has moved into the restaurants where average people stop for a bite to eat, the gas station where they go to...

    On October 16, a New York state trial court judge removed the Republican and Conservative nominees for Judge of the State Supreme Court from the November ballot. See this story. The basis was that the nominating conventions for this office, for these two parties, violated state law. The ruling says the parties may convene a new convention and re-nominate. New York elects State Supreme Court Justices from districts. This incident concerns the Fifth Judicial District, which, this year, is electing four justices. Although the Republicans have been removed from the Republican line and the Conservative line, they are still on...

    Women who supported the confirmation of Supreme CourtJustice Brett M. Kavanaugh have been reamed on the left as brainwashed, shameful, privilege-defending gender traitors, and it’s starting to annoy them. Anti-Kavanaugh activists saved their most virulent post-confirmation screeds for women who refused to condemn Justice Kavanaugh — especially the white ones — another indication of the resistance’s growing irritation with centrist and conservative women putting due process over feminist solidarity. “I find the idea that ‘as a woman’ I must think a certain way extremely patronizing,” said Allie Stuckey, host of CRTV’s “Relatable.” “If these so-called feminists really believed in female...

    It would make sense that the people most likely to believe the testimony of Dr Christine Blasey Ford would be the ones who look like her: middle-aged, white women. But polls and even a cursory glance at cable news show this not to be the case. Fox News host Martha MacCallum said that following Ford’s testimony, she kept hearing from moms who “fear due process is dead”. If Brett Kavanaugh is denied a supreme court confirmation over Ford’s sexual assault allegations, these women fear their sons could be subjected to “an unfair precedent” one day. It’s a view very much...

    Facebook is currently doing everything in their power to protect CNN after they censored evidence that one of their producers, Scott Bronstein has been randomly calling people who used to attend school with Judge Brett Kavanaugh in an attempt to dig up dirt on the Supreme Court nominee that might be used to prevent his confirmation to the Supreme Court from taking place. Mark Zuckerberg’s social media platform took things a step further when they not only censored the evidence, but they deleted all media articles related to the evidence that was presented by Amy Dryden and banned Amy Dryden...
