    Since November 2016, the media and the progressive left have been pounding the same two claims. The first is that Donald Trump was not really elected, since Hillary Clinton got more popular votes. The second is that anyone who voted for Mr. Trump or supports him today is a white male supremacist bigot. And probably homophobic and xenophobic to boot. Regardless of actual race or sex. Regarding the first claim, Hillary’s national margin of 2.8 million votes can be explained entirely by California, which has become a one-party, socialist state with enormous potential for vote fraud. Mrs. Clinton collected 4.3...

    It doesn’t matter if you’re a Hispanic or black or Asian conservative in the growing #WalkAway movement from the Democratic Party; you are a white male bigot. U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas was not even included in the National Museum of African American History and Culture. Feminists have been declaring conservative women to be non-female for decades for not worshiping at the shrines of abortion and sexual anarchy. Well, a lot of people have had enough of our progressively dysfunctional culture, which is the main reason that Donald Trump was elected. Many Americans saw their country being changed beyond...

    Breitbart ^ | 10-14-2018 | Dr Susan Berry
    Cultural commentator Camille Paglia said in a recently published video that second-wave feminism – in its attempt to destroy men – is also destroying women and our culture. A video of Paglia’s discussion at the Battle of Ideas festival in London in October 2016 has been made available on YouTube and was recently linked to on the Drudge Report. The video is released with the launch of Paglia’s new book, Provocations: Collected Essays. The feminist icon – who prefers the original brand of feminism that won women the right to vote and raised up heroines such as Katharine Hepburn, Amelia...

    "Today felt very much like an update of the 1850s: Two very distinct parts of U.S. that no longer care to even fake that they respect or value the other," wrote Ron Brownstein. But should the idea of the U.S. amicably breaking apart scare us? Maybe it should be welcomed and vigorously debated. Michael Malice, the author of cultural commentarys, pointed out in a 2016 Observer article that the United States has "never been united culturally." Which made him question our determination to remain united politically. "The real conundrum," he wrote, "is why two cultures should attempt to move forward...

    Breitbart ^ | 10/9/2018
    New York Times best-selling author and populist conservative columnist Ann Coulter says “constant immigration” to the United States and other countries will lead to “no difference” between countries and “no culture” around the world. During an interview on the Swedish television show Skavlan, Coulter said mass immigration to the U.S. makes the world less diverse, as countries begin to lose their culture and heritage. “I feel like I’m the only one who really wants diversity,” Coulter said. “If all we’re going to have is this constant churning and constant immigration, we’re all going to be … we’re all going to...

    We all see there is an abnormal amount of tension in today’s political discourse. Also, many see deep, inherent problems in the progressive’s worldview, also known as cultural Marxism. It’s important to understand the inherent problems in many of the policies that the progressives advocate today and why these policies automatically lead to increased levels of antagonism, and maybe even to a violent future that will harm us all. Economic Marxism, as practiced in the USSR and Communist China, followed the following pattern. • The Marxists said their laws would make the world a better place. They said that compassion...

    An uneasiness has overtaken the body politic. There is a sense that a terrible clash is about to occur. The establishment’s contempt for Donald Trump, and their machinations to remove him, are validated by the president’s intemperate counterattacks and the glee that his supporters take in his barbs. These two groups do not simply disagree; they consider each other to be illegitimate and unconstitutional outlaws. It is true that Trump’s behavior is not befitting his office and that a certain decorum and dignity in the White House is not only desirable but essential. Democracy is no different from any other...

    When news broke that the upcoming Hollywood film about the moon landing leaves out the planting of an American flag in lunar soil (though it apparently shows the flag later), both sides of the ideological aisle instantly weighed in, each with compelling arguments. The film in question has only been seen by a select few, meaning the truth won’t be clear until its Oct. 12 release. That didn’t stop Social Media Nation. (Does it ever?) The problem began when Ryan Gosling, who stars as Neil Armstrong in director Damien Chazelle’s film, shared why we don’t see the astronaut planting an...

    If National Football League players continue their protests during the national anthem this season, it will rile some Republican voters, increasing their intensity and making it more likely that they will vote. ...This issue is beyond the control of Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats who want to keep the elections focused elsewhere. When asked specifically about the NFL’s new anthem policy, Pelosi punted as she responded: “I love the national anthem. I love the flag. And I love the First Amendment, and I’ll just leave it at that.” In the coming weeks, Republicans will hold the Democrats’ feet to the...

    August 14, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – Disney is reportedly pushing the homosexual envelope yet again with an upcoming film in which it will feature for the first time an openly gay character. The move is being hailed as a "turning point" for Disney. British comedian Jack Whitehall will play a gay character in Jungle Cruise, which is based on the iconic theme park ride of the same name, the UK’s Sun reports. The film, which stars Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Emily Blunt, is slated for an October 2019 release. Whitehall’s character is reportedly the brother of Blunt’s, and “a gay...

    Batman, one of DC Comics' most recognizable fictional heroes, no longer believes in God in the latest comic book issue. ScreenRant shared the storyline details for Batman #53, released on Wednesday, which comes at the conclusion of comic writer Tom King's post-Catwoman/Batman wedding arc. In the story, Catwoman leaves Batman, whose secret identity is billionaire Bruce Wayne, at the altar. This leaves Wayne in a questioning state, where he explores his life and reflects on his theological background — he had been raised as a Christian by his father, Thomas. In one exchange with another character, Wayne is asked, "Do...

    ecently, Politico reporter Marc Caputo was angered at rude hecklers at a Trump rally who booed beleaguered CNN correspondent Jim Acosta. So Caputo tweeted of them, “If you put everyone’s mouths together in this video, you’d get a full set of teeth.”[snip] Again, demonizing the Trump voter as beyond cultural redemption is nothing new. During the 2016 campaign, Hillary Clinton infamously dismissed Trump supporters as “deplorables” who were “irredeemable” and were “not America.” After her defeat, Clinton proved her early smears were no accident. Speaking in India, she again slurred Trump supporters as being racist, sexist, and xenophobic for their...

    Fox News host Laura Ingraham on Wednesday lamented that the “American we know and love doesn’t exist anymore” because of demographic changes in the country that she blamed on illegal and legal immigration. Ingraham was reacting to comments from Democratic House candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who described in a recent podcast interview the way the country has changed over the past few decades, including the decline of the upper-middle class. “She’s kind of right in a general sense,” Ingraham said after mocking Ocasio-Cortez's comments. “In some parts of the country it does seem like the America we know and love doesn’t...

    The culture wars we are fighting are indeed as deep as the Catholic Church, but it's not limited to the Catholic Church, and it's not just a gay thing. Corruption wears many disguises, including liturgical garments. Don't let the robes fool you The conspiracy of silence in the Catholic Church over scandals involving sex, homosexuality, cover-ups, payouts, betrayal, and corruption have left many Catholics disillusioned and even angry. Corruption wears many disguises, including liturgical garments. As Part l of “Conspiracy of Silence in Catholic Dioceses”, I addressed, Sacramento Bishop Jaime Soto as one such cover-up agent, according to many area...

    Trump has also had a huge impact on our culture since he came down that escalator. His ability to form narratives, his ability to see next moves, his ability to tie the Democrat-media complex in knots, his purposefulness, his drive, his relentlessness are all a part of his leadership. More than most understand, he has been one of our greatest leaders in the cultural as well as political realm... *snip* The other leader to note, is not particularly political. He is, oddly enough, Canadian. He's taught at Ivy League schools. He's a clinical psychologist and teaches in Toronto. He gives...

    The early 1970s were a strange, chaotic, terrifying time. Exactly how strange, chaotic, and terrifying has been largely forgotten, to judge from how many Americans on both sides of the Donald Trump divide view our current tensions as unprecedentedly intense. Journalist-historians Bill Minutaglio and Steven L. Davis are not deliberately trying to deliver a message about historical perspective. But in their thrilling The Most Dangerous Man in America: Timothy Leary, Richard Nixon and the Hunt for the Fugitive King of LSD, they show how bad things got in a nation truly troubled by vicious culture wars, wracked by violent ideological...

    Sarah Sanders had a hard time getting dinner in the D.C. area on Friday. She and her family were asked to leave the Red Hen restaurant in Lexington, Va. Jaike Foley-Schultz, who says he is a waiter at the Red Hen, shared a post on Facebook that said his boss kicked out the press secretary and her party. The post went viral when the director of Clean Virginia, a left-leaning energy nonprofit, shared the post on Twitter, along with a handwritten note, purportedly from the restaurant, with the note: “86 — Sara Huckabee Sanders.” The term “86” is restaurant shorthand...
