  • Know Thine Enemy: Essential Reading for Conservative Americans

    04/14/2019 6:40:28 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 22 replies ^ | April 14, 2019 | Timothy Daughtry
    To write a thorough and well-documented history of the Left is an impressive accomplishment in itself.  To write such a history so that it reads with the ease and flow of a good, gripping novel is another thing altogether, but that is what Mark Melcher and Stephen Soukup have done with Know Thine Enemy: A History of the Left (Volume One).  This comprehensive history of the Left’s major figures and movements is page-turning read for anyone wanting a deeper understanding of the threat to America’s culture, politics, and future posed by the Left’s radical agenda.The book’s opening alerts the reader...
  • Progressive groups call on House Dems to investigate Kavanaugh's confirmation

    More than two dozen progressive groups are asking House Democrats to investigate Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh s confirmation process. Senate Republicans made a mockery of their constitutional responsibility to provide advice and consent on the presidents nomination of Justice Kavanaugh, and the American people deserve to know how and why the process was such a sham, the groups wrote in a letter to the House Judiciary and Oversight committees. The public is just as entitled to a thorough review of Justice Kavanaughs record now as it was before he was elevated to the Supreme Court and to know...

    Burger King has removed an advert which shows western people trying to eat a burger with oversized red chopsticks following criticism on social media. The advert for a new Vietnamese burger in New Zealand has sparked a debate over whether the advert is harmless fun or culturally insensitive and racist. A clip of the advert posted to Twitter by Maria Mo, a Korean woman living in New Zealand, has been viewed more than 2.9M times.

    More than a dozen state lawmakers filed onto the stage, summoned by the smiling leader of their state: Ralph S. Northam, the governor of Virginia. On the governors right were a handful of House Democrats, who as a group in February said they were no longer confident in the governors representation of Virginians, after learning of a shocking racist photo on Mr. Northams medical-school yearbook page. On his left were mostly Republicans, including the speaker of the House, Delegate Kirk Cox, whod declared that Mr. Northams ability to lead and govern is permanently impaired. Some on stage were members of...
  • How the Left Keeps Me Religious

    Nothing keeps me religious more than the left, not even religion itself. I am not even particularly "spiritual." My religiosity is overwhelmingly rational (the title of my Bible commentary is "The Rational Bible"). I believe in God because creation rationally suggests a Creator. The force that has most propelled me to religion is the great (secular) religion of the last hundred years: the left. If most people of the left (the left, not liberalism) -- people who have not only rejected but scorned God, Judaism, Christianity and the Bible -- were decent individuals, were committed to intellectual honesty and had...

    Full Title: Nation's Psychiatric Wards Prepare For Influx Of Deranged Liberals Should Mueller Report Not Prove Collusion U.S.The nation's psychiatric wards are preparing themselves for an influx of deranged liberals, as Robert Mueller's official report into Russian collusion has now been filed with the attorney general. As it now seems unlikely that the report will provide definitive proof that President Trump colluded with Russia during his 2016 campaign, psych wards and mental health facilities began bracing themselves for a wave of psychotic, disillusioned liberals to be checked in by their friends and family members. "We haven't really had to get...
  • Liberalism Is Dehumanizing

    03/22/2019 4:10:50 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 10 replies ^ | March 22, 2019 | David Limbaugh
    Liberal ideology is rife with inconsistencies, but none is greater than how its supposedly animating motivation -- human compassion -- is contradicted by its devaluation of human life. Liberals have long claimed superior compassion and demonized conservatives as being uncaring. This has always been untrue while superficially appearing to be true, and liberals have evangelized countless young minds with this seductive canard. It's difficult to convince embryonic liberal activists that individual liberals may be compassionate but their governing ideology and the inevitable consequences of their policies are not. It's also difficult to make them see that conservatives are compassionate and...

    Every year, many thousands of American parents find that the son or daughter they sent to college has been transformed by college into a leftist. For left-wing parents, this may be a blessing, but for parents who are not leftist not to mention conservative it is often painfully jolting. It is jolting because their beloved child now holds America in contempt; prefers socialism to capitalism; regards all white people and police as racist; believes the Bible, Christianity and Judaism are not only nonsense, but dangerous nonsense; no longer believes men and women are inherently different or even...

    I find it impossible to disagree with Ryan Saavedras Twitter observation: "The Democratic Party, which has called everything under the sun a Nazi for the last 3 years, all of a sudden cant muster up the spine to condemn blatant anti-Semitism within their own party. Its been in the works for years under the cloak of intersectionality -- in truth little more than an effort to ingather voting blocs of illegal immigrants, Palestinian supporters, socialists, blacks locked in the ghettoes of their minds, sexual outliers LGBT (and "whatever other gender now included), and malcontent women delighted that even post-birth...

    Amazon isnt the only one fed up with New Yorks ridiculous tax rates. Plenty of companies are packing their bags and looking for office space in states with more business-friendly policies. Theres just one problem: A lot of these top firms cant stand the conservative laws that make their new homes so successful. AllianceBernstein, another firm fleeing the Empire States stifling economy, just announced that its relocating its $70 million headquarters to Nashville. But before it moves, the CEO is warning Tennessee: Its not a fan of religious liberty. And AllianceBernstein is proving it by fighting the states faith-based adoption...

    Kaitlin Bennett went undercover at UCLA as Jenna Talia to ask students to sign a petition to throw conservatives into involuntary re-education camps. Not only were the students she approached ecstatic to sign it, but one member of UCLAs student government encouraged her to change the language to diversity and sensitivity training to hide their real intentions so the administration would approve it.

  • Dennis Prager: Leftism Is Not Liberalism

    What is the difference between a leftist and a liberal? Answering this question is vital to understanding the crisis facing America and the West today. Yet few seem able to do it. I offer the following as a guide. Heres the first thing to know: The two have almost nothing in common. On the contrary, liberalism has far more in common with conservatism than it does with leftism. The left has appropriated the word liberal so effectively that almost everyone liberals, leftists and conservatives thinks they are synonymous. But they arent. Lets look at some important examples. Race:...

    Michael Walsh has this excellent piece on the passing of Pat Caddell. I cannot add much more to Walshs spot-on comparison of Pat to an Old Testament Jeremiah, but Ill try. Pat deserves as much applause as he can get. Pat and I spoke at many of the same events. I had the pleasure of dining with his daughters family at one back in 2011, and from there, Pat and I struck up an intermittent conversation over the years about election issues and projects. When I was in Charleston, we found a steakhouse somewhere to conspire. The last time...

    The main problem in American politics is not the obvious polarization but the underlying reasons for it. Partisanship, angst and divisiveness are all preferable to surrendering the culture and fundamentally transforming the republic. The Democratic Party has deceived much of the public into believing that its positions aren't extreme, but the truth is coming out now for all to see. Such veritable crackpots as Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez are not merely fringe fruitcakes; they are just bringing the party out of the closet. It's as if half this decades long leftist conspiracy to turn America into a socialist hellhole has finally...

    When I was growing up, the man who delivered coal to our school jokingly warned me that if I didnt study hard and get good grades, I would also end up delivering coal. It was a joke. But it also wasnt. Working with coal was hard and dirty. Even if all you had to do was deliver it. And, there, far removed culturally and geographically from America and its old minstrel shows, coal dust meant hard work. Once upon a time, the Left romanticized coal dust and the coal miner as symbols of the oppressed working class. Then it degenerated...

    Trump's SOTU speech was wonderful, factual and optimistic. It was a celebration of America and the successes of the last two years. No one would know it by the visible response of the ladies in white (allegedly an homage to women's suffrage), the mostly newly elected Democrat congresswomen. The only part of the speech they sincerely applauded was themselves more women in Congress. For most of the rest of the speech, they sat on their hands, looking mad (Mazie Hirono), glum (all of them), petulant and dismissive (Kamala Harris), bored and studiously disinterested (Nancy Pelosi). Pelosi, along with Schumer,...

    America is full of visible and invisible walls. In the first half of the last century, our politics had been dedicated to tearing down the walls between classes, races and genders. And then in the second half of the century, radicals terrified of what that meant for their plans, began building them up again while adding new divisions until every city, workplace and even family is divided by many invisible walls. Walls represent divisions. Whether you support or oppose a particular wall depends on whether you believe a division is legally, morally or philosophically legitimate. The walls that the radicals...

    Ive seen it time and again in the Christian entertainment industry. A new Christian film is coming out, and were excited to announce that so-and-so, a famous secular director, is involved with the project. We seem to have forgotten, though, that only a few months earlier we were boycotting that very directors films because of their immoral, anti-Christ message. Now, we revel in his validation. Why? We do the same thing with the secular news media or with liberal activist groups. We want to show them how moral we are, even though we reject their morality. Why? What are we...

    The key to causing Leftists to make themselves appear stupid is to choose hand gestures that are already innocent and common; a claim by the left is that hate lies subtly all around us, so why not coaxe them down that path to total insanity and pariahdom..? Forward the graphic to your rightishly-inclined friends, then sit back to enjoy the Lefty Meltdowns. If The Left is nuts enough to criminalize SMIRKING (Orwell in 1984 literally wrote of "Facecrime" in his dystopian novel), would they fall for THIS..? OF COURSE THEY WOULD..!
