  • Duke Historian Trivializes Autism

    Accuracy in Academia ^ | February 15, 2018 | Malcolm A. Kline
    Duke University historian Nancy MacLean, not content to do slap and tickle histories, has gone on to trivialize a malady that afflicts millions. "Nancy MacLean, the Duke University historian who wrote Democracy in Chains, the deeply conspiratorial and much-criticized biography of public choice economist James Buchanan, told an audience in New York last week that Buchanan and other early leaders of the limited-government movement 'seem to be on the autism spectrum,'" Robby Soave reports on Reason.com. "According to MacLean, there is a connection between autism and libertarianism, and that connection is not feeling 'solidarity or empathy,' and having 'kind of...
  • Vanity: Gary Johnson Speaking at CPAC? Huh?

    02/19/2018 6:25:16 AM PST · by rightwingintelligentsia · 34 replies
    Failed Libertarian Presidential Candidate Gary Johnson is scheduled to speak at CPAC this year. That's interesting, to say the least. What does everyone think of the rest of the line-up? Besides POTUS and the VP, it looks like a mixed bag of conservative regulars, RINOs, and Never Trumpers with a few more slightly edgier choices. Does anyone here attend CPAC any more? Would be interested in your thoughts and experiences.

  • FEC Democrats Waging "Underground" War On Drudge, Conservative Media

    02/17/2018 8:50:58 AM PST · by blam · 12 replies
    Democrats on the Federal Election Commission (FEC) have taken their fight against media outlets such as Fox and the Drudge Report “underground,” says Lee Goodman, who is leaving the agency Friday after nearly five years on the panel. “The debate has gone underground, it has not ceased,” said Goodman, who pointed to a campaign by FEC Democrats to remove long-standing media exemptions on fines and criminal charges for not policing whether or not political ads contained the proper disclaimers identifying their source. In a memo about a recent case, for example, Goodman said that Democrats Ellen Weintraub and Steven Walther...

    It should be no surprise that less than a year after a Bernie Sanders fan took a rifle and attempted to erase the Congressional GOP for the crime of having different political views that some cretin decided to send Donald Trump Jr. a packet of mystery white powder. After all, Don Jr. is not a progressive, so don’t his and his family deserve to be terrorized, if not murdered? Or did I misunderstand the progressives’ stand by their near total silence? Well, not total silence. The Twitter left sure had a ball with it, yukking it up. Dousing someone...

    Axios ^ | 5 Feb 2018
    Rarely has a president changed his party as fast and profoundly as Donald J. Trump. Love him or hate him, you can no longer argue his ability to bend an entire party to his will. In the two and a half years since he announced his candidacy, he has moved the party away from decades of orthodoxy on trade, Russia, deficits and more — and has helped make the law-and-order party skeptical of FBI leadership. Perhaps the most profound thing Trump has done is show how many movement leaders and Republicans in Congress are out of touch with Republican voters:...

    The Left gets to spit on, scream at, and stomp on conservatives all day, every day, all year long A Vietnam vet friend of mine, who has since passed away, once opined that what America really needs is a good old fashioned “National Smack A Lib Day.” Just to drain off some of that excess adrenaline, you know? The Left gets to spit on, scream at, and stomp on conservatives all day, every day, all year long. They call us bigoted racists, while the “news” outlets insult We the People 24/7 by insulting President Trump—our choice for president. They wish...

    #MeToo strikes again. No due process. No presumption of innocence. But this is hard-nosed, down and dirty politics The King is Dead- Long Live the New Princess Caroline Mulroney. Politics is a dirty, dirty, dirty, zero-sum, winner take all business. Or to paraphrase my favorite cynical political philosopher, Thomas Hobbes, “Ontario Conservative politics since the Harris era, is solitary, poor, nasty, brutish and short”. One day Ontario Progressive Conservative leader Patrick Brown is cruising to a sure minority or majority political victory. The next day, his political career is destroyed over allegations of sexual misconduct by two anonymous women.

    Indy100 ^ | 1/27/18 | Darin Graham
    Hot people are more likely to support right-wing parties because they are stronger and more successful than their more liberal peers, apparently. That's according to a study carried out by Rolfe Daus Peterson, a political scholar from Susquehanna University and Carl Palmar, assistant professor in politics at Illinois State University. The researchers claim that never before has the effects of physical attractiveness on politics been examined on this level and that there is "good reason to believe that individuals’ physical attractiveness may alter their political values and worldviews".

    Social media IS the new public square. It’s the place you go when you want to reach out and find an audience. …….Except Facebook has for all intents and purposes announced that it’s killing off pages. So much for having a conservative voice there. As James O’Keefe just revealed in his latest sting, Twitter felt comfortable banning pro-Trump accounts and one of his unwitting sources said, “Yeah you look for Trump, or America, and you have like five thousand keywords to describe a redneck. Then you look and parse all the messages, all the pictures, and then you look for...

    Canada Free Press ^ | 01/17/18 | Selwyn Duke
    Whatfinger is the younger, more vibrant up-and-coming contender who only needs a title shot to hoist the belt. I hope it gets it, too, because the current media status quo has conservatives heading for a knockout. In this anti-establishment age, people are increasingly moving toward anti-establishment news sources. Many good examples exist, but as far as news aggregators go, one stands out: Whatfinger News (Whatfinger.com). That’s right, not the Drudge Report. That titan of news-aggregator traffic loses out because of an area in which it may be without peer: providing eyeballs for left-wing websites. More on that momentarily.

    How Conservatives Are Being Destroyed by Facebook, Twitter and Google Without Ever Realizing Why Twitter has become so adept at keeping Conservative masses from finding the truth that it even gets away with hiding the Tweets of the President of the United States of America from public view. Count on Twitter coming back on articles like this one with PR-perfected bull crap. President Trump Tweets are prolific, right?

    Today, as you read this, my website Right Wing News is shutting down operations. It has been around since 2001, but became massive a few years ago because of Facebook. Remember the mainstream media liberals going out of their minds because the Russians reached almost 150 million people with their $100,000 Facebook ad buy? In July of 2015, in just a week, the Right Wing News Facebook page reached 133 million people. Because conservatives were sharing content they were interested in, little ol’ Right Wing News (well, I guess nearly 3.6 million Facebook likes isn’t so little) was driving the...

    Daily Caller ^ | Jan 09, 2018 | Eric Lieberman
    Google, the most powerful search engine in the world, is now displaying fact checks for conservative publications in its results. No prominent liberal site receives the same treatment. And not only is Google’s fact-checking highly partisan — perhaps reflecting the sentiments of its leaders — it is also blatantly wrong, asserting sites made “claims” they demonstrably never made. When searching for a media outlet that leans right, like The Daily Caller (TheDC), Google gives users details on the sidebar, including what topics the site typically writes about, as well as a section titled “Reviewed Claims.” Vox, and other left-wing outlets...

    A well-known Republican San Francisco lawyer has filed a lawsuit against Google seeking to represent white, male or conservative employees who believe the company has discriminated against them. The lawyer is Harmeet Dhillon, a partner with the Dhillon Law Group in San Francisco and the former chairwoman of the Republican Party in San Francisco. She has been on the hunt for such victims since she took on fired Google engineer James Damore as a client in August. And on Monday she presented the first fruits of her research in a 161-page complaint that's chock full of allegations and screenshots. The...

    Scratch a liberal, find disdain for the intelligence of conservatives. For that matter, no scratching required when it comes to Joe Conason, who proudly flaunts his contempt for conservatives. Appearing on Joy Reid’s MSNBC show today, Conason—who’s made a career out of defending the Clintons—sneered that investigating the Clintons: “sells to boobs out there on the right.” Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    WASHINGTON -- My friend and colleague Donald Rieck, president of The American Spectator Foundation, died late last week in an automobile accident. He leaves two charming and very young children. He also leaves many friends throughout the conservative movement and shocked colleagues at The American Spectator. He was 50 years old. Don was, as Roger Kaplan chronicled in his Spectator obituary: "A force to be reckoned with. Burly, direct, always busy, he was the kind of man who let you know he wanted whatever he asked for yesterday, even if he had not mentioned it to you yet, and yet...

    My Leftist friends (as well as many ardent #Never Trumpers) constantly ask me if I'm not bothered by Donald Trump's lack of decorum. They ask if I don't think his tweets are "beneath the dignity of the office." Here's my answer: We Right-thinking people have tried dignity. There could not have been a man of more quiet dignity than George W. Bush as he suffered the outrageous lies and politically motivated hatreds that undermined his presidency. We tried statesmanship. Could there be another human being on this earth who so desperately prized "collegiality" as John McCain? We tried propriety has...

    I have a question. Tonight, on the New Year's Eve Times Square webcast, I have been seeing person after person saying that their wish for the new year is that our country would have more compassion. I don't know about you, but I don't think that we've lost any of our compassion. Why do you think THEY think that compassion is lost?
