    Some have complained about my use of certain phrases in reference to the two major American political Parties. I therefore offer the following explanations for future reference: I call the Democrat Party the Party of Jim Crow because to this day, it stands for division on racial and class lines. it is elitist and holds that the majority cannot be trusted to run their own lives and need the "benevolent" management of those who are smarter, know more -- and are of better character. That is the essence of Progressivism, which itself is a socio-ideological carry-over from the Plantation owners'...

    Bill Clinton was heckled and booed on Sunday during a campaign event in Logan, West Virginia, where the town’s mayor recently informed Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin that the former first couple are “simply not welcome” because of their “anti-coal messages.” “I wanted to come here and tell you that I care about what you’re going through. I get it and I think that we can do something about it, that’s the most important thing,” Clinton said at the event, where he was joined by Manchin and Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin, a native of the coal town of about 1,800. But...

    Democratic lawmakers appointed to the Energy and Commerce Committee’s Select Investigative Panel on Planned Parenthood received more than $81,000 in campaign contributions from the organization since 1990, according to a study by the Media Research Center. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., announced the Democratic appointments to the panel earlier this week. “I am proud to name six strong champions of women, families and facts to stand up against the latest Republican assault on women’s health,” Pelosi said in a statement. “Hard-working families deserve better than a taxpayer-funded Republican Select Committee fixated on dismantling women’s health.

    Thursday morning, asked on the Today Show whether he believed in raising taxes on the wealthy, Donald Trump, the frontrunner for the GOP nomination for president, gave a reply that illuminated how much of a Democrat in GOP clothing the Orange-Haired One is, replying, “I do, I do.” As time passes, Trump is becoming almost indistinguishable from Bernie Sanders. Daily Wire Editor-in-Chief saw this back in February, in a piece delineating how alike the two men were on numerous policies. For the sake of solely concentrating on their similarities vis-ŕ-vis economic policy, here’s Shapiro’s section on that: They’re both anti-establishment...

    GUTHRIE: Do you believe in raising taxes on the wealthy? TRUMP: I do. I do – including myself. I do. That was...this morning, in an interview that featured some other controversial statements.  In fairness to Trump, he's been using the "raise taxes on rich people like me" line for months, embracing Obama-style class warfare tax gimmicks like the 'Buffet Rule.'  But raising taxes on anyone, an outcome Trump just re-endorsed, is not what his formal policy agenda proposes.  Just the opposite.  As we've seen on issues such immigration, abortion and foreign policy, Trump routinely makes clear that he isn't familiar with his own positions.  His stances aren't...

Sweden Democrat (SD) member of parliament Kent Ekeroth said the actions of the school showed the political establishment in his country had all-but succeeded in turning the country into an Orwellian “1984-society”. The deliberate, and apparently successful reprogramming of Swedish school children’s political views was revealed by a boastful Social Democratic Party party member in the nation’s left wing, best-selling newspaper Aftonbladet.

    Cruz's reception in New York was chilly. Back in January, Ted Cruz made the mistake of assuming the rest of America still hates New York. His dismissal of "New York values" didn't endear him to the Empire State — Governor Cuomo demanded an apology from Cruz, and the New York Daily News did what the New York Daily News does best — and as expected, the comment came back to haunt him as he campaigned in the Bronx on Wednesday. Meanwhile, at a massive rally in Long Island, Donald Trump, who's polling ahead of Cruz in New York by a...

    The America we live in, our nation, our people, our society, is not the America most of us were born in at all. The uniquely American forms are all there, all untouched, all reassuring, the football games, the local bars, the movies, the concerts, and the holidays. But the spirit, which most of us never noticed because we made the lifelong mistake of identifying it with the forms, has been fundamentally transformed. The transformation has occurred through the slowly creeping separation of not only the government from the people, but the people themselves from their country. It has taken place...

    Bernie Sanders and his young supporters say, “No worries, we’re democratic socialists.” Outsiders say, “No problem, they barely know what socialism is.” Others see Sanders’s movement as a passing response to an economic downturn. All of this is largely mistaken. Modern American socialism is decidedly undemocratic; its young acolytes are far less ignorant of socialism than they appear; and contemporary socialism is more of a religious than an economic phenomenon. Distracted by the disturbing rise of Donald Trump, liberals and conservatives alike are responding far too complacently to a recrudescent socialist movement that is destined to harm our democracy. *********snip***********...

Bernie Sanders is not on the ballot for Washington, D.C.'s Democratic primary on June 14, thanks to a clerical error. Both Sanders, a senator from Vermont, and front-runner Hillary Clinton submitted their paperwork and the $2,500 fee in advance of the March 16 deadline. But due to a clerical error, the D.C. Democrats did not notify the Board of Elections until March 17, according to WRC-TV in Washington.

Mr. Sanders found a welcome tableau in the largely white and liberal electorates of the Pacific Northwest, where just days after resoundingly beating Mrs. Clinton in Idaho he repeated the feat in the Washington caucuses, winning 73 percent of the vote. He did even better in Alaska, winning 82 percent of the vote, and in Hawaii, he had 71 percent with a few precincts...

    On Feb. 16, Gov. Steve Bullock flew to Missoula from Helena to conduct “state” business, which also happened to “conveniently” coincide with a campaign event, using the state’s turboprop airplane, at a cost of not less than $1,000/hour. A 115-mile drive, it’s probably an 80-mile flight; not the type of flight for which this plane is designed. More offensive is that he’s flying to a destination that includes a campaign event, using state equipment/taxpayer funds to do so. This has been an ongoing practice of this governor (the same modus operandi recently used for campaign events in Billings and Bozeman)....

Bernie Sanders pulled off a narrow upset in the Michigan primary Tuesday, buoying his challenge to Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton and giving him bragging rights to a big, diverse state outside his previous areas of strength. Sanders’s come-from-behind victory was fueled by a relentless focus on his opposition to “disastrous” trade deals that have battered the manufacturing sector in Michigan. He will carry the same message to Ohio, North Carolina, Illinois and Missouri next week. Clinton, meanwhile, cruised to an expected win in the primary in Mississippi, the latest in a series of contests in Southern states...

    Regardless of how well Donald Trump did on Super Tuesday (and for that matter, how he fares in a handful of states today) the GOP primary isn’t really “over” just yet. But on the other side of the aisle, the Democrats seem much closer to having made their choice. For better or worse, and barring an indictment, they seem to be ready to go with Hillary Clinton. This brings up the inevitable question of who she will tag as her veep selection. At the Washington Post, Dana Milbank makes the case that there should only be one name on the...

    Predictions of doom for the Republican Party are all the rage in the media, but the real story of this election cycle (so far) is the collapse of Democrat turnout. Some of this is no doubt due to the difficulty in generating enthusiasm after more than 7 years of foreign policy disasters and historically low economic growth under Obama. Another factor is the sheer unappealing nature of Hillary Clinton. Bernie Sanders is the sole person in the party capable of generating excitement, playing to the far left wing and youth after freebies (and so badly educated by the leftist educational...

    The stakes in 2016 are huge and the party is fractured. The rhetoric reflects a Trump Derangement Syndrome in which Trump is either a monster or a savior, instead of a politician. On the left, Bush Derangement Syndrome expressed itself in the conviction that he was unalterably and uniquely worse than every other president and would get around to declaring martial law and ruling forever. The danger of exaggeration is that previously unacceptable views suddenly become acceptable. Bush Derangement Syndrome made it acceptable for Democrats to descend into open treason by making common cause with Saddam Hussein, the Sunni terrorist...

    When Marco Rubio attacked Donald Trump on the debate stage this week for using undocumented Polish workers to build Trump Tower, the developer shrugged it off. "He brings up something from 30 years ago," Trump shot back. "It worked out very well. Everybody was happy." But a look into the history of the Trump Tower, the crown jewel of the real-estate mogul's empire, reveals the beginnings of the 68-story building were, in fact, rooted in the back-breaking labor of 150-odd Polish immigrants — most working illegally, some without full pay. "It's constructed on the blood, sweat and tears of the...

    With the Trump massive victory last night in the Nevada Caucus....the time is coming, or here already, not only to make America great again....but to cause the permanent upheaval of the American political structure, which is now controlled by political elites, the mainstream media, political donors, poliitcal lobbyists and the good ole boy & gals that rub each others backs in the Republican & Democrat political parties. The American people are treated like sheep, scorned, used & abused by these power hungry & financial tyrants. The political differences between both major parties is naught but a charade to keep us...

    Kentucky State Representative Mary Lou Marzian (D-Louisville) has introduced legislation (HB396) that would impose tighter restrictions on the availability of Viagra. If passed, the law would limit Viagra availability to married men who have their spouse's written permission. "Right now erectile dysfunction is a woman's first line of defense against rape," Marzian declared. "We should not tear down this barrier willy-nilly by allowing any man who can get a doctor to write him a prescription have this drug. Ideally, we should put something in the water that negates every man's capability to get an erection. This would practically eliminate the...

    As someone who lived 27 years in East Asia, I know what a rich seam Trump is tapping into as he focuses on America’s trade disaster. For two generations already, increasingly pathetic American trade officials have turned a blind eye to the blatant barriers facing American exports in key foreign markets. One result has been a tragic roll-call of factory closures in the American heartland. Another result, as Trump has insistently pointed out, is that other nations literally laugh at the United States. They think of the U.S. government as idiotic where it is not corrupt....

    GREENVILLE, S.C.--Jim Moseley considers himself a "Christian soldier." On Thursday, he drove to the Cross Way religious bookstore in Greenville, S. C., the most devout region in one of America's most devout states, to buy his girlfriend an anniversary card inscribed with a Bible verse. On Saturday, the 58-year-old salesman will vote in a critical Republican presidential primary. And he will vote for an insult-spewing casino developer from New York who has said he has never once asked God for forgiveness, curses without provocation, used to support abortion rights and speaks proudly of his own greed. Easy decision. Moseley explained...
  • [Vanity] What is a Crossover Trump Supporter?

    Much has been made about "Democrats for Trump," are the issue of cross-over voters. Some have speculated that that Democrats who want Trump at this point are just trying some version of "Operation Chaos." Maybe some are, and they're idiots if they think Trump would lose big to either Sanders or a version of Hillary that accommodates the far-left. But in reality, there is a group of people today who indeed are disaffected former Democrats given how the SJWs have taken the party over at its highest levels. Some of Trump’s (formerly) Democratic supporters are people who: 1. Might believe...

    "Superdelegates help Clinton expand her lead despite NH loss," reads the headline of a piece that moved across the Associated Press wire on Thursday. Despite losing New Hampshire by 22 points to Bernie Sanders, the story notes, Hillary Clinton has actually widened her delegate lead over the senator from Vermont -- winning 87 superdelegates since Feb. 9 to Sanders's 11. Overall, according to the AP's count, Clinton has a 481-to-55 delegate edge, even though among delegates allocated by the first two votes in Iowa and New Hampshire, Sanders leads 36 to 32. [Snip] That Clinton is winning the lion's share...
