    (A sober and ominous look at the accelerating destruction of western culture and history, including chilling footage of the knocking down of the statue of a confederate soldier in Durham NC and the frenzied reaction of the cheering crowd - almost all self loathing whites. And the police is nowhere to be found. If this isn't war, I don't know what is. And they have unopposed and total free rein to destroy.) (6 min video)

  • Why workers need a corporate tax cut

    The New York Post ^ | August 15, 2007 | Betsy McCaughey
    Don’t be bamboozled. You don’t have to be a business owner to benefit from business tax cuts. If your goal is more take-home pay, these tax cuts will help you. Data from 72 countries over 22 years show that raising corporate-tax rates hurts workers, while countries that lower corporate taxes enable their workers to earn higher wages. What the Democrats’ class warriors aren’t telling you is that business tax rates in the United States are higher than in any other developed country, making it hard for American companies to compete for investment capital. That disadvantage is worsening as many European...
  • Anti-conversion laws will not help India

    The Washington Times ^ | August 15, 2017 | Joseph D'Souza
    Early this month, the state government in Jharkhand, northern India, introduced a new Freedom of Religion Bill. At first glance, the name of this bill suggests an important step forward in human rights for India, but it’s actually the opposite. The bill is a cleverly disguised anti-conversion law, and it’s not the first to be introduced in the country. Despite the fact that the Indian constitution clearly defines and protects the freedom to practice and propagate religion, radical members of both national parties — Congress and the BJP — have already managed to pass anti-conversion laws in the states of...
  • CNN: Is White Supremacy What Trump 'Meant' by 'Make America Great Again?'

    After Tuesday’s heated press conference over Charlottesville, the media has been in a renewed frenzy over Trump’s comments. Over at CNN, the outrage seemed to be at its worst, with hosts sounding just like their radically left-wing guests. On the 7am hour of CNN’s New Day, fill-in host Poppy Harlow actually asked liberal reporter and CNN analyst April Ryan if Trump's slogan “Make America Great Again” was referring to the days when the KKK terrorized the South. The panel discussion started between the Daily Beast’s John Avlon, CNN political analysts David Gregory and April Ryan, and hosts Chris Cuomo and...

    Long before most people in Europe or North America were familiar with the word ‘jihad’, left-wing terrorism ravaged much of Western Europe. Groups like West Germany’s Red Army Faction/Baader-Meinhof Gang, America’s Symbionese Liberation Army, Italy’s Red Brigades, Spain’s First of October Anti-Fascist Resistance Groups, Portugal’s FP-25, Action Directe in France and the IRA in Britain were left wing terrorist groups who committed numerous atrocities including targeted killings, bombings, kidnappings and torture on a wide scale. At a time when most people correctly thought of Mosques as places of peace and holiness, these far-left groups put fear into the hearts of...

    National Review ^ | June 5, 2017 | Ian Tuttle
    There is currently, on the streets, smashing storefronts and setting things on fire, a group called “Antifa,” for “anti-fascist.” Antifa are not a new phenomenon; they surfaced during the Occupy movement, and during the anti-globalization protests of the late 1990s and early 2000s. Antifa movements began in early-20th-century Europe, when fascism was a concrete and urgent concern, and they remain active on the Continent. Lately, Antifa have emerged as the militant fringe of #TheResistance against Donald Trump — who, they maintain, is a fascist, ushering into power a fascist regime. In Washington, D.C., Antifa spent the morning of Inauguration Day...

    Newsbusters.org ^ | August 16, 2017 | Brad Wilmouth
    Appearing as a guest on Wednesday's CNN Newsroom, CNN senior political reporter Nia-Malika Henderson claimed that the Republican party has been "playing the race card" for "many decades" as she commented on Republican reaction to President Donald Trump's recent comments in which he seemed to give cover to white racist rally participants in Charlottesville. At 9:08 a.m. ET, after recounting Florida Republican Senator Marco Rubio's reaction to Trump's comments, Henderson continued: CNN's Henderson Claims GOP Have 'Played the Race Card' for 'Many Decades'   I think you have Republicans who are going to have to figure out what they're going...

You not only will conform, you will love it — and if you don’t, kablooey! It is to the work camps for you or to the reeducation jail for you — and if you don’t get it after that, then it’s dog doo-doo for food for you until you do get it.” Let me ask a simple question, ladies and gentlemen.

He was on Wolf Blitzer’s CNN show this afternoon. He’s African-American, if you didn’t know. Congressman Clyburn is a member of Congressional Black Caucasians too. He’s a big guy in the Democrat Party. Wolf Blitzer said, “What was your reaction, as someone who has worked so hard in this area of civil rights all these years, what is your reaction to Trump in the press conference yesterday?” CLYBURN: We remember from...

    RUSH: I want to go through line-by-line what Trump said. Because the media is reacting as though Trump lied and distorted and did so outrageously. And the media is beside itself. But as you go through each one of these things, what you’ll find is that Trump told the truth. He didn’t make anything up. We’ll start with this. “What about the Alt-Left that came charging in?” “Excuse me, excuse me,” the media started shouting the moment he said it. “What about the Alt-Left that came charging in, as you call them the Alt-Right. Do they have any semblance of...

    CNN delighted in reporting the results of a recent poll question that asked: "How much do you trust the things you hear in official communications from the White House? Do you trust almost all, most of it, just some of it, or nothing at all?" If a regular viewer of CNN were to choose anything higher than zero, you'd assume he was a victim of the opioid epidemic. Given the size of CNN's audience as a percentage of the national population, this was an issue. Forty-three percent picked "some of it," as people tend to do in a poll. Twenty-four...

    Caleb Slater, a conservative student and the president of the Ithaca College Republicans, recently attended YAF’s 39th Annual National Conservative Student Conference, where he received a baseball cap with the Young America’s Foundation logo and our slogan, “The Conservative Movement Starts Here,” printed on the back. Caleb chose to wear his YAF hat when he attended a vigil in Syracuse, New York, for the victims of last weekend’s violent clash in Charlottesville. “I wore my Young America’s Foundation hat to the rally as a symbol of peace,” Caleb explained. “I wore the hat to show that conservatives condemn the actions...

    One thing overlooked in the uproar over Charlottesville is that this was, evidently, merely a dress rehearsal for a much larger-scale effort planned for this Autumn. Activist groups on the left evidently have something big in store for November 4th. The idea seems to be a revival of the 1971 “Days of Rage” – an effort to shut down the country as a whole to force a change in government. Thanks to one of many political mailing lists that AT finds itself on, we received an email last Sunday from the “Stop Mass Incarceration Network,” a little-known left-wing agitation group,...

    Came across an article from a few years back . . . http://www.worldaffairsjournal.org/blog/michael-j-totten/truth-about-che-guevara It lays out the entire horrific truth about Che Guevara. Here's my thought. Time to turn around the microaggression movement on the college campuses and give them a taste of their own medicine. Every time a conservative student sees a poster of Che in a dorm room, listens to a nutjob professor try to whitewash Che's legacy or something similar . . . report it to the school as a microaggression and demand removal of the offending image and request the professor to write a public apology...

    Some Democrats and their advocates in the press have been quick to denounce the RAISE Act, the new immigration reform bill proposed by Republican Sens. Tom Cotton and David Perdue and endorsed by President Trump. "The Trump, Cotton, Perdue bill is rooted in the same anti-immigrant, xenophobic, and isolationist rhetoric that was a cornerstone of the Trump campaign," said senior House Democrats John Conyers and Zoe Lofgren. "A xenophobic half-measure," added Rep. Ed Markey. "A play to the xenophobic sentiments that lifted Trump to the presidency," wrote the Washington Post's Jennifer Rubin. Now, though, a new poll shows broad...

    Google fired software engineer James Damore for writing a 10-page memo critical of the company's diversity policy. The memo violated the company's code of conduct by "advancing harmful gender stereotypes" by suggesting that biological factors were part of the cause for the male/female gap in the tech industry. I shall make the case that Google's actions were totally justified. Other than differences in certain physical attributes such as genitalia, capacity to give birth and the presence of functional mammary glands, males and females are identical in every other respect. Any remaining male/female differences are a direct result of oppression, discrimination...

    I am writing this column to inform readers of some good news.

    Why aren't there more women criminals?! Men in jail outnumber women by a ratio of 14-to-1. We male stutterers outnumber women, too. This isn't fair! We need more affirmative action! These disparities must be caused by sex discrimination because everyone knows there are no real differences between genders. After all, Google fired engineer James Damore for daring to suggest that there is a biological reason men dominate tech leadership. Google's CEO said: "To suggest a group of our colleagues have traits that make them less biologically suited to that work is offensive." Then the media lied about what Damore wrote....
