  • 'Cancel Culture' Candidates Don't Make the Cut in Democratic Primary

    WASHINGTON -- Former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julian Castro announced Thursday that he was bowing out of the 2020 Democratic primary. The only reason to notice or care is that Castro was one of the more shrill candidates, so it's good that he never found purchase in the crowded field and hence had to "suspend" his campaign. Like Kamala Harris, the California Democratic senator who dropped out in December, Castro has been part of the left's "cancel culture" that seeks to silence those with differing views rather than to debate in the marketplace of ideas. Harris tried to stand...

    A Christian student kicked off a university course over his views on gay marriage has celebrated his latest legal battle as “great news" for anyone who cares about free speech. Felix Ngole, 41, said that he was expressing a traditional religious view when he was accused of posting derogatory comments about homosexuals and bisexuals on Facebook. Mr Ngole posted comments in 2015 when taking part in a debate on a Facebook page about Kim Davis, a state official in the US state of Kentucky, who refused to register same-sex marriages, judges heard He had said Mrs Davis's position was based...

    Salem, Ore. - Gov. Kate Brown on Thursday authorized Oregon State Police to round up GOP senators who have staged a walkout in protest of the cap-and-trade energy conservation bill. "The Senate Republicans have decided to abandon their duty to serve their constituents and walk out," Brown said in a statement.

    Hillary Clinton warned her audience of the rise of fascism in America during an alumnae event held at Wellesley College. The former presidential candidate joined former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, both alumnae of the school, on campus for a reunion event at the all-women’s college, according to The Hill. The two were interviewed on stage by Wellesley president Paula A. Johnson. During the interview, Clinton alluded to President Donald Trump as a proponent of a fascist America. "There is nothing new about it, it's just different means of messages being delivered. “I think Madeline [Albright]'s book is really well-named:...

    MajorSocially Acceptable Movement Corporations Bravely Come Out In Support Of Incredibly Popular, Socially Acceptable Movement U.S.—For Pride Month, hundreds of corporations are being applauded for bravely coming out in support of an incredibly popular, socially acceptable, entirely mainstream movement: the LGBTQ+ community. It obviously takes a lot of courage for a big corporation to fly a rainbow-colored flag, sell rainbow merchandise, or temporarily change their logo to pride colors. So these massive companies are really going out on a limb here, supporting a movement that you're literally ostracized for not supporting. "I'm so glad to see that YouTube is using...

    RUSH: Look at Bob Iger. So Bob Iger, he runs a business. Disney is a network that got started doing what? Making programs and theme parks for who? Children! Children! Kids! Little babies, who grow up to become Disney fans. They watch Disney TV shows, they watch Disney movies, they buy Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse dolls, they go to the theme park. So Bob Iger is out there, and he is livid over the anti-abortion bill in Georgia. And he’s saying (paraphrasing), “You know what, we may have to pull out of there. We may not be able to...

    This year’s McKinsey & Company retreat in China was one to remember. Hundreds of the company’s consultants frolicked in the desert, riding camels over sand dunes and mingling in tents linked by red carpets. Meetings took place in a cavernous banquet hall that resembled a sultan’s ornate court, with a sign overhead to capture the mood. “I can’t keep calm, I work at McKinsey & Company,” it said. Especially remarkable was the location: Kashgar, the ancient Silk Road city in China’s far west that is experiencing a major humanitarian crisis. About four miles from where the McKinsey consultants discussed their...

    Video at link. Actor and conservative commentator Ben Stein said Saturday that the protesters who berated Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell at a Louisville restaurant the night before are “becoming like the brownshirts in the early days of the Nazi Party.” Mr. McConnell and his wife, Secretary of Transportation Elaine Chao, were confronted at the Havana Rumba restaurant by at least two hecklers who reportedly stole the couple’s leftover food off their table and threw it outside. It was one of many similar incidents involving Republican politicians being heckled in public in recent months. Mr. McConnell was recently heckled by...

    An interesting moment I caught during Ted Cruz's excellent grilling of Mark Zuckerberg. Cruz: "Of the 20 thousand people you say monitor the content of users ... do you know any of their political affiliations"? Zuckerberg: "Senator we 'GENERALLY' do not hire people based on their political affiliation". Here's the link to the particular moment: Generally merely means 'not the majority' totally avoiding the question of the facebook minitors. This is something Ted Cruz wouldn't pass up to follow up on the use of 'GENERALLY'. Next question is why didn't any of the Senators ask Zuckerberg of how much...

    Some therapists claim they can turn children from gay to straight. It’s controversial counseling that, experts say, hurts children. 7’s Brian Entin investigates how one South Florida county is trying to stop it. ....Justin Flippen is the vice mayor of Wilton Manors, and is now comfortable with his sexuality. But he grew up Southern Baptist and spent years in conversion therapy in Broward County when he was a young adult. Justin says therapists tried to blame being gay on his parents’ divorce, and he says the therapy sessions confused him even more about who he really was. ...Eight South Florida...

    Wherever you stand on the issue, it’s impossible to ignore the cultural shift in attitude towards euthanasia and assisted suicide. What was once considered murder under the law is now being accepted as medical ‘treatment’ in many countries. However, even the most ardent promoters of these laws are now saying the ‘genie is out of the bottle’ and are severely questioning where these laws have taken society. We’ve all heard the tragic and much publicized stories of people who died by an assisted death. Tragic indeed. However, this film will focus on stories seldom heard in mainstream media: testimonies from...

    John Haller is in Facebook prison. Clearly, he must be saying the right things. Help spread the word and get his message out. We may be experiencing to advent of two classic novels in our lifetime. Were Orwell and Rand modern day prophets? Consider this: In the novel Nineteen Eighty-Four, by George Orwell, the Thought Police (Thinkpol) are the secret police of the superstate Oceania, who discover and punish "thoughtcrimes" which are defined as personal and political thoughts unapproved by "the Party." Thinkpol used criminal psychology and omnipresent surveillance to monitor and arrest all citizens of "Oceania" who would commit...

    The clash between the alt-right and the hard left at last Saturday’s aborted “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville ended in what appeared to be a deliberate atrocity on 4th Street just below the Downtown Mall. One woman was killed, and nineteen others wounded when James Fields ran them down with his car. The reason for the car’s sudden acceleration is not yet clear, but the Antifa action with the baseball bat immediately prior to the incident does raise questions (see this post for more).Given the speed at which the car was traveling, and the number of people on...

    The Democrat Party: Nothing Has Changed Except the Hood The Ku Klux Klan was founded as the activist wing of the Democratic Party. kkk rally 2 On September 28, 1868, a mob of Democrats massacred nearly 300 African-American Republicans in Opelousas, Louisiana. The savagery began when racist Democrats attacked a newspaper editor, a white Republican and schoolteacher for ex-slaves. Several African-Americans rushed to the assistance of their friend, and in response, Democrats went on a “Negro hunt,” killing every African-American (all of whom were Republicans) in the area they could find. (Via Grand Old Partisan) Democrats in hoods slaughtered hundreds...

    Here’s the best article you are likely to read about the absurdity of calling ANY American president Hitler. This is the sort of persuasion (sprinkled with facts) that can dissolve some of the post-election cognitive dissonance that hangs like a dark cloud over the country. Share it liberally, so to speak. You might save lives.Speaking of Hitler, I’m ending my support of UC Berkeley, where I got my MBA years ago. I have been a big supporter lately, with both my time and money, but that ends today. I wish them well, but I wouldn’t feel safe or welcome on...

    Creating a fascist dictatorship is far easier than it may seem. You are watching the rise of fascism in America, although the story the fake news media is telling you isn’t the truth.Step 1. Silence all dissent.Fascists censor free speech, using violence when necessary. Fascism has never arisen in cultures that respect free speech. To create a fascist dictatorship, it’s important to silence your critics.Step 2. Use violence on those you disagree with.When people you disagree with speak their minds, punch them in the face.

    Consider this your left-wing freakout of the day. It seems to have started with a story in the Daily Mail after someone there got hold of Gorsuch’s high school yearbook. The Mail took what was a joking bit of self-reference written by Gorsuch and turned it into a straight story: Gorsuch founded the ‘Fascism Forever Club’ during his freshman year at Georgetown Preparatory, a now-$30,000-a-year private Jesuit school that is one of the most selective in the United States.He served as president until he graduated in 1985, according to his senior yearbook. Dozens of news sites ran with the...
  • George Orwell: ‘What is Fascism?’ Tribune article 1944 (thrown around loosely back then as now)

    01/22/2017 4:54:55 PM PST · by Bigtigermike · 25 replies
    TRIBUNE 1944 Of all the unanswered questions of our time, perhaps the most important is: ‘What is Fascism?’ One of the social survey organizations in America recently asked this question of a hundred different people, and got answers ranging from ‘pure democracy’ to ‘pure diabolism’. In this country if you ask the average thinking person to define Fascism, he usually answers by pointing to the German and Italian régimes. But this is very unsatisfactory, because even the major Fascist states differ from one another a good deal in structure and ideology. It is not easy, for instance, to fit Germany...

Liberals won’t – because they can’t – pause to reflect on how they should stop being such insufferable jerks and live with us normals in peace and mutual respect. Instead, they are doubling down on their gambit for unrestrained power over every aspect of our lives, fueled by a hatred for Donald Trump that is, in reality, a hatred for us. Remember, they really do...

Breitbart News reported on the Orfalea’s video exposing the Hillary bias and now it appears Facebook is censoring the exposure of censorship. Orfalea told Breitbart News: “It’s insane.”
