    Liberals sure love #Science, but like all conservatives I just hate #Science so very, very much. Did you know that 97% of #Science-people, who clearly love #Science, agree that the global warming climate crisis means we have to immediately give the liberal elite a bunch of our money and freedom because of #Science? Well, we do – and as of a couple of months ago, noted #Scientist AOC informed us that we have exactly 12 years to do it. Okay, 11 years, ten months. Tick tock! You know it’s true #Science because of the specificity of her 12 years figure....

    Melbourne, Australia - Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison has declared victory in the country's federal elections after his Liberal-National coalition defied opinion polls and secured a surprise win over the opposition Labor Party. Morrison, who had campaigned on providing tax cuts and the strength of Australia's economy, claimed the win shortly after Labor leader Bill Shorten conceded defeat on Saturday. "I have always believed in miracles ... and tonight we've been delivered another one," Morrison told a jubilant crowd of supporters in Sydney. "Tonight is not about me or it's not about even the Liberal party. Tonight is about every...

    The Failing New York Times ^ | 5/18/2019 | Damien Cave
    SYDNEY, Australia — Scott Morrison, Australia’s conservative prime minister, scored a surprise victory in federal elections on Saturday, propelled by a populist wave — the “quiet Australians,” he termed it — resembling the force that has upended politics in the United States, Britain and beyond. The win stunned Australian election analysts — polls had pointed to a loss for Mr. Morrison’s coalition for months. But in the end, the prime minister confounded expectations suggesting that the country was ready for a change in course after six years of tumultuous leadership under the conservative political coalition. “I have always believed in...

    As an increasing number of residents are looking to leave high-tax Opens a New Window. states, such as California and New York, some of these state and local governments Opens a New Window. are not making the process easy. The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act introduced a number of reforms, including a $10,000 cap on state and local tax deductions, which have caused Americans to look into establishing legal primary residences in states where they can limit their liabilities. But some states give taxpayers a hard time when they are trying to change their domicile – thereby establishing their permanent...
  • AOC Is Confused Why Conservatives Say Her $93 Trillion Green New Deal Is 'Too Much Money'

    Trending Politics ^ | 5/14/2019 | Frank
    Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez acts like she's confused and doesn't understand why $93 trillion is too much. She doesn't have a real way to generate that money. If anything, it would come from taxpayers. Not to forget, the Democratic Party already struck down her Green New Deal when they voted on it the first time. Democrats don't seem to have faith in AOC's plan. Video at source.

    Family Research Council ^ | May 9, 2019 | Tony Perkins and FRC senior writers
    When the head of Twitter's public policy department told the Senate he'd do more on conservative censorship, making it worse wasn't what most leaders had in mind! Unfortunately, that's exactly what seems to be happening -- to pro-lifers, Trump supporters, and even popular parody accounts. Three weeks ago, Carlos Monje Jr. was apologetic for the mistakes Twitter had made. A month later, he has a lot more to be sorry for. Their stories are different, but several victims of Twitter's bias have one thing in common: no one explained why. Mike Morrisson, who's been running a popular "AOC Press" account...

    American Thinker ^ | 05/07/2019 | Thomas Lifson
    Calling it a “mistake,” Google has reversed its decision to not allow the Claremont Institute to advertise its 40th Anniversary Gala honoring Secretary of State Pompeo. Many nonprofits rely on selling tickets to galas honoring important public figures for the bulk of their fundraising, both from tickets, and from donations that come from people attracted to attend the gala. In other words, limiting Claremont’s ability to attract ticket buyers and donors to its important event was an attack on its financial survivability. If you do not know the Claremont Institute and do not read its superb Claremont Review of...

    We’re probably going to be heading down a bit of a rabbit hole here but bear with me. As regular readers may know, I’ve been doing a fair bit of digging into Elizabeth Warren’s proposal dealing with student loan forgiveness and free tuition, along with the very different responses we’re seeing to these plans. One of the issues that comes up repeatedly is the question of whether such a scheme would really be “fair” to the people who have already put in the work and paid their debts if others who didn’t (or couldn’t) pay those bills just had them...

    There’s an odious Supreme Court case from 1971, Palmer v. Thompson, that most people don’t remember and that most who do remember wish they could forget. It’s a relic of a bygone era—one of the last pieces of the Jim Crow system that the Supreme Court ever sustained. On our current Supreme Court, Palmer v. Thompson looks to be having a moment. Its reasoning stealthily drove last year’s decision in Trump v. Hawaii, in which the court’s five-justice conservative majority upheld the travel restrictions that the president had planned during the campaign to be a “Muslim ban.” And this week’s...

    Many might think there is an obvious correlation between political leanings and TV preferences but in a new report backed by the Pop Culture Collaborative, the findings were both expected and unexpected. So much that it will make you raise your eyebrows and make you nod and say “Interesting!” whilst stroking your chin. The Norman Lear Center at USC Annenberg and the futurePerfect Lab released a report today titled Are You What You Watch: Tracking the Political Divide Through TV Preferences which examines the links between our political beliefs, TV viewing habits, and behavior. This report comes a little over...

    Many people, years after they graduate from high school and college, have nightmares about taking exams for a course for which they have done none of the reading and are totally unprepared. They wake up full of anxiety and relax only when they realize they left school years ago. But increasingly, it seems like none of us ever get out of school, as the rules and restrictions that have proliferated on college and university campuses over the last two or three decades ooze out and spread to the wider society. We find ourselves dealing, exams aside, with the campusfication of...
  • Pro-Family Groups Call On Media, Big Tech To Stop SPLC From Smearing Christians, Conservatives

    Breitbart ^ | 4-18-2019 | Dr Susan Berry
    Organizations promoting family and faith have purchased an ad in the Wall Street Journal that calls upon media and tech industry giants to stop aligning themselves with the disgraced Southern Poverty Law Center’s (SPLC) smears of conservative and Christian groups. Family Research Council (FRC) purchased the ad in conjunction with the American Family Association (AFA) and in cooperation with SPLCexposed.com. The SPLC has declared both FRC and AFA as “hate groups” because of their promotion of Christian family and sexuality values. The SPLC – notorious for its labeling of many conservative and Christian organizations as “hate groups” – has recently...
  • Trudeau Faces a New Foe as Conservatives Retake Power in Alberta

    New York Times ^ | 04/17/2019 | Ian Austen
    MONTREAL — The return of conservatives to power in oil-rich Alberta adds another province to a growing bloc of opposition to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau of Canada and his government. Incomplete returns late Tuesday night showed the United Conservative Party led by Jason Kenney, a former Conservative federal cabinet minister, leading the New Democratic Party under Rachel Notley by a substantial margin. While neither Mr. Trudeau nor his Liberal Party has ever been particularly popular in Alberta, the loss of a left-of-center ally is not welcome news for him six months before the federal election. Mr. Trudeau has been weakened...
  • Alberta Election Live Results: UCP forms majority government

    Calgary Herald ^ | April 16, 2019 | AMANDA STEPHENSON
    The United Conservative Party has formed a majority government. With 2,012 of 7,337 polls reporting, premier-elect Jason Kenney’s party is leading or elected in 63 ridings, with the NDP leading or elected in 23. There are 87 ridings in Alberta, and 44 are needed to form a majority government. The result makes history, in that it marks the first time an Alberta government has gone down to defeat after only one term. After sweeping to power on a wave of dissatisfaction with the reigning Progressive Conservatives in 2015, Rachel Notley’s NDP could not replicate their unprecedented “Orange Crush” or convince...

    April 16, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) – Social media giant Twitter has quietly severed ties with the left-wing Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) amid mounting reports of scandal within the organization and insider claims that SPLC’s “hate” monitoring is a money-making scam. Twitter previously identified SPLC as a “safety partner” that helps weed out “hateful conduct and harassment” on the platform, but the Daily Caller reports that their partnership may no longer be the case. “The SPLC is not a member of Twitter’s Trust and Safety Council or a partner the company has worked with recently,” an anonymous source inside Twitter said....

    He’s called the “Green New Deal” a “sound framework” for confronting climate change. He’s called for abolishing the Electoral College and has endorsed the idea of single-payer health care. And he’s openly gay. But Pete Buttigieg is getting rare praise from some unlikely voices — conservatives. Right-leaning pundits and politicians have taken notice of Buttigieg’s rising popularity, an ascent that began in early March after the South Bend mayor’s widely heralded CNN town hall performance, which garnered a sprinkling of compliments from Republicans. In the time since, a number of conservatives have shown a growing interest in Buttigieg and at...

    A new analysis by The College Fix this week reveals that the federal Truman Scholarship was only awarded to leftist students in 2018. None of the 59 recipients identified as a conservative American. The Harry S. Truman Scholarship Foundation offers $30,000 scholarships to promising high school students who pledge to spend three years after graduation in public service. The federal scholarship is awarded to 59 students each year. “We identify young people at an important inflection point in their development—when they are college juniors—and recognize and reward their commitments to devote themselves to public service,” the scholarship’s website reads. According...
