  • How conservatives in California — and nationally — could turn America around

    The Hill (of all places) ^ | June 25, 2019 | Lewis K. Uhler and Peter Ferrara
    Recently, California Gov. Gavin Newsom — who makes former Gov. Jerry Brown look like a conservative — declared that the national Republican Party is headed for the “waste bin of history” because of its policies. This from one who wants universal (taxpayer-supported) health care for undocumented migrants in California and taxpayer-supported preschool for all 3-year-olds by the same public school system that is failing elementary and high school students, with no solution for the many homeless in cities of the Golden State. California can be saved from the progressives seeking the Democratic presidential nomination by broadening the base of commonsense...
  • The Marxist Roots of ‘Medicare for All’

    The Association of Mature American Citizens ^ | June 14, 2019 | Trevor Loudon, the Epoch Times
    When Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.) announced the launch of H.R.1384, “Medicare for All,” on the Capitol steps on Feb. 27, 2019, it was a major step toward a socialist America. Jayapal was surrounded by more than 100 supporters, many from groups such as National Nurses United, the Center for Popular Democracy, Our Revolution, Coalition of Labor Union Women, and the Labor Campaign for Single Payer. Appropriately, all of the organizations represented are controlled, or at least heavily influenced, by America’s largest Marxist organization, the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA), which can quite rightly claim credit for the socialist single-payer movement...
  • THE NEW BARBARIANS: how the left erasing America's history, culture, institutions and blessings

    “Socialism or barbarism!” That’s the classic Marxist theme, the title of many far-left books, and the stark existential choice posed by socialists of all stripes: Either adopt our enlightened way – or sink into barbarism. However, as with most everything else on the left, this is pure projection since history proves that, intentionally or not, barbarism is precisely the end result of socialism. Really? you ask. I know socialism ignores all the laws of economics and always seems to fail, but BARBARISM? Yes, barbarism. And we’re not talking just about the unprecedentedly barbaric death toll of over 100 million during...
  • Why the Hammer and Sickle Should Be Treated Like the Swastika

    Foundation for Economic Education ^ | Nov 2018 | Richard Mason
    If someone were to ask you to think of either extreme of the political spectrum, odds are you would immediately picture a swastika at one end and a hammer and sickle at the other. Regardless of your views on the left-right paradigm or whether or not you subscribe to horseshoe theory... As such, many of us would also feel rather uneasy seeing those two symbols. Upon seeing a swastika, we are immediately reminded of the evils of the Nazi regime and are accordingly repulsed. To publicly display the logo is even a crime in many European countries. We understand how...

    The American Policy Center ^ | February 25, 2019 | Tom DeWeese
    Sometimes if you fight hard enough and refuse to back down, no matter the odds, your truth is vindicated and prevails! For twenty years I have been labeled a conspiracy theorist, scaremonger, extremist, dangerous, nut case. I’ve been denied access to stages, major news programs, and awarded tin foil hats. All because I have worked to expose Agenda 21 and its policy of sustainable development as a danger to our property rights, economic system, and culture of freedom. From its inception in 1992 at the United Nation’s Earth Summit, 50,000 delegates, heads of state, diplomats and Non-governmental organizations (NGOs) hailed...

    The first rule of any Marxist revolution is that rules are fine if they advance the cause or cripple opponents. The rules can be discarded the minute they get in the way. That’s the way America’s Marxists, socialists and many liberals operate when it comes to the Constitution, especially the First Amendment. Here’s the relevant portion: "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech or of the press.” When they are legalizing obscenity and destroying community standards, the Left’s attorneys, spearheaded by the ACLU, take a...

    The Swedish government is weighing whether it should ban its historical imagery including rune script and Norse symbols, since they may be viewed as “hate” symbols. This isn’t an isolated incident, either. In the United States, historical statues and imagery across the country—from war memorials, to Civil War leaders, to paintings of George Washington—have been targeted for destruction by individuals who find them offensive. A new history is being shown to youth in the United States, and in many other countries, which criticizes their traditional cultures, curses their founding stories, and condemns their founders. They are being taught to hate...
  • Racial wealth gap is vast: 2020 Democrats have plans to close it

    NBC News ^ | 05/20/2019 | Benjy Sarlin
    From reparations to "baby bonds," Democratic candidates are proposing big ideas to confront inequality. If you’ve been to an event with a Democrat running for president this year, there's a good chance you’ve heard about it: the racial wealth gap. Candidates are regularly bringing up the fact that the typical black family has only one-tenth the assets of the typical white family — a divide that has grown larger than it was 35 years ago. Far from a niche concern, candidates have incorporated it into their signature proposals. They've addressed it in speeches not just to black churches in South...
  • California could bring radical change to single-family-home neighborhoods

    LA Times ^ | LIAM DILLON
    If you live in a single-family home in California, it’s likely everyone else in your neighborhood does too. That could change under a state measure that would require California cities and counties to permit duplexes, triplexes and fourplexes on much of the residential land now zoned for only single-family houses. The proposal was recently added to Senate Bill 50, legislation by Sen. Scott Wiener (D-San Francisco) that also would allow mid-rise apartment construction near mass transit as well as small apartment complexes and town homes in wealthy communities in large counties including Los Angeles.

    New Right Network ^ | May 8, 2019 | Alexander Paritsky & Gary Gindler
    To understand Marxism and counter-evolution, let us imagine an unusual sporting event, say running for a mile against several other runners. The task which is set before these athletes is to arrive at the finish line not any earlier or later, but at the same time as all the other runners. What would be the result of this “equality running competition”? It is easy to predict, that the result of such a race would be unfortunate, because the runners will always have to slow down in order to not accidentally overtake the others. As a result, all will finish the...

    Townhall.com ^ | May 7, 2019 | Dennis Prager
    At PragerU, we have released about 400 videos on virtually every subject outside of the natural sciences and math. Along with two billion views, the videos have garnered tens of thousands of comments. So we have a pretty good handle on what people most love and most hate. For example, any video defending America or Israel inevitably receives many negative responses. But no videos elicit the amount of contempt and mockery that videos defending religion, explaining the Bible, or arguing for God do. Why is that? There is a good reason. The Bible and the left (not liberalism; leftism) are...

    “Here, in the United States, we are alarmed by new calls to adopt socialism in our country. America was founded on liberty and independence — not government coercion, domination, and control. We are born free, and we will stay free.” — President Donald Trump, State of the Union Address February 5, 2019 Venezuela is a real-time example of the failure of socialism. Promises of prosperity frequently lead to poverty for the masses and all-too-often opens the door to brutal dictators. Nicolas Maduro is such a ruler and we sadly see daily reminders of how far he is willing to go...
  • Left-Wing Ideology: A Cult, a Religion, or Science?

    American Thinker ^ | Gary Gindler
    More than a hundred years ago, prominent Marxist Antonio Gramsci wrote: "Socialism is precisely the religion that must overwhelm Christianity. [Socialism is] religion in the sense that it too is a faith with its mystics and rituals; religion because it has substituted for the consciousness of the transcendental God of the Catholics, the faith in man and in his great strengths as a unique spiritual reality" [1]. Equalizing an ideology with religion was pretty novel back then. However, Gramsci was talking about religion not as it is commonly understood — i.e., the relationship between God and men — but as...

    “There are going to be beatings and probably shootings, and shooting at police”. Former CIA officer Kevin Shipp warns that leftist violence is going to get “very very bad” over the next two years in response to President Trump indicting the plotters who tried to remove him from office. During an interview with USA Watchdog’s Greg Hunter, Shipp, a former manager of high risk Counter Terrorism Center protective operations with the CIA, predicted that there would be arrests of deep state figures who were involved in the scandal. “This was a coup. It was a conspiracy. It was criminal activity....

  • Zimbabwe to start paying white farmers compensation after April

    Reuters ^ | April 8, 2019 4:56 AM | MacDonald Dzirutwe
    Zimbabwe is to start paying compensation this year to thousands of white farmers who lost land under former president Robert Mugabe’s land reform nearly two decades ago, the government said, as it seeks to bring closure to a highly divisive issue. Two decades ago Mugabe’s government carried out at times violent evictions of 4,500 white farmers and redistributed the land to around 300,000 black families, arguing it was redressing imbalances from the colonial era. But land reform still divides public opinion as opponents see it as a partisan process that left the country struggling to feed itself. President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s...
  • House Violence Against Women Act Reauthorization Disappoints, Fails to Protect Women

    Concerned Women for America ^ | April 6, 2019 | CWALAC Staff
    This week, the House passed a reauthorization bill of the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA), but this bill falls short and fails to accomplish its namesake goal. From its inception, the purpose of VAWA has been to protect, support, and seek justice for women who have suffered assault or abuse. CWALAC fully supports that mission. The goal of the current VAWA reauthorization efforts should advance these objectives, not compromise them. The reauthorization must address misguided efforts to go beyond the scope of VAWA, which represent a fundamental threat to the privacy and safety of women and girls. Unfortunately, the House-passed...
