  • Will Changes to American Life Become Permanent?

    10/22/2020 4:33:19 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 11 replies ^ | October 22, 2020 | Victor Davis Hanson
    The coronavirus, widespread quarantines, an unprecedented self-induced recession, and unchecked rioting, looting, and protesting -- all in a presidential election year -- are radically disrupting American habits and behavior. Rents, home prices, and office occupancy rates in major cities, especially on the two coasts, are dropping fast. Techies and young professionals have discovered that they can work from home without paying sky-high housing costs in order to be close to the office. Those more fortunate wonder why they should get bogged down with commutes and urban traffic -- or navigate city sidewalks amid homelessness, crime, racial tensions, and urban unrest...

    Let’s Google together. Open a Web browser and search for T-shirts. I’ll wait. Is the first thing you see a search result? I’m not talking about the stuff labeled Ads or Maps. On my screen, the actual result is not in the first, second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh or even eighth row of stuff. It’s buried on row nine....Google is, quite literally, a bad personal shopper. Here, side by side, are Google results for T-shirts from the Wayback Machine in 2000 and 2013 alongside what I see in 2020.. Relative to 2000, today you have to scroll six times...

    May I offer a few thoughts as an outsider to mainly an American audience? Over the last 30 to 40 years, I used to say that the Lord could come any time, and we believed that. We used to point to bad things in the world and say we were living in the last days. We had our crooked politicians, Israel was in place, and the 10 nations of Europe formed the European Common Market. No one of us had heard about “political correctness”; no one imagined it would be law that men can marry men, and there would be...
  • Anti-Trump vandals going hog-wild in Arizona neighborhood. But Biden campaign signs? They're left alone.

    'When they come right up to the doorway and go into a hallway and rip a flag down, that made me feel really violated' One thing that's glaringly apparent in Kevin Beamon's neighborhood is the support for President Donald Trump. As KPHO-TV noticed upon visiting the Scottsdale, Arizona, enclave, pro-Trump flags, signs, bumper stickers, and banners are in numerous yards. But on Monday night, several of those pro-Trump displays of support were slashed or stolen, the station said. Not that there are only Trump supporters in this neck of the woods — a few folks have signs up for Democratic...
  • Mother punched through SUV window by unhinged leftist who didn't like her Trump flags — all while victim's daughter, 11, watches from back seat [MA]

    Leftists continue to lose their minds — or believe they can get away with blatant violence — in public places full of surveillance cameras. What are the details? Police in Fall River, Massachusetts, said a mother was driving with her 11-year-old daughter in the area of South Main and Hall streets last week when two women in another vehicle apparently didn't take too kindly to the mom's flags supporting President Donald Trump that were flying off both sides of her SUV, WHDH-TV reported. Police provided the station with surveillance video showing the initial part of the confrontation, as the Trump...
  • Joe Buck And Troy Aikman Caught On Hot Mic Mocking NFL Military Pregame Flyover

    FOX broadcasters Joe Buck and Troy Aikman don’t appear to be big fans of military pregame flyovers at NFL games. In a video obtained by Defector media, Buck and Aikman, who apparently didn’t know they were being recorded, could be heard on a hot mic before the start of Sunday’s Packers-Bucs game mocking the pregame flyover as a waste of money by the government. TROY AIKMAN: That’s a lot of jet fuel just to do a little flyover. JOE BUCK: That’s your hard-earned money and your tax dollars at work! AIKMAN: That stuff ain’t happening with [a] Kamala-Biden ticket. I’ll...

    50 Cent is backing President Trump. The 45-year-old rapper on Monday urged his social media followers to “VOTE For TRUMP” after seeing figures related to Joe Biden’s tax plan. The Queens-bred artist bashed the Democratic presidential nominee’s plan, which would raise tax rates for corporations and people making $400,000 or more per year.

    Washington Examiner - Opinion Editorial ^ | October 17, 2020 | Eidtorial Board
    In three days before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Judge Amy Coney Barrett did more than just prove that she belongs on the Supreme Court. She delivered one of the most effective performances ever for a nominee seeking the job. As judicial nominations have become more contentious, all recent nominees to the Supreme Court have demonstrated a depth of knowledge about constitutional law and a lawyer’s ability to field questions from senators. Barrett certainly did all of that. In days of testimony, she effortlessly recounted the issues at stake in various legal disputes, juggled questions from senators, and explained the reasoning...

    He's on-the-air, and on-fire. Chris Plante from WMAL in DC, is rated in America's Top 10 Talk Radio Show Hosts. His show is the "prep work" for many other shows. And, unlike the others, he pulls no punches, tells it like it is and doesn't take any BS from liberal, demonKKKrat, leftist, commie, socialist, fascist, marxist and anarchist callers. He's the guy we'd all like to sit down with and have a dbl-cheeseburger and a cold one, while talking about the state of America, and the crazies who are pulling the strings, behind-the-scenes.

    Says Patrick J. Buchanan , , , Start quote "In national polls, Trump is further behind, in some by double-digits, reflecting the mammoth Democratic majorities in populous and deep-blue California, New York and Illinois. Still, this thing is not over. For, at this stage of the 2016 campaign, Hillary Clinton was showing equally impressive poll numbers, and she would go on to lose all eight of those battleground states in the greatest upset since Harry Truman defeated Tom Dewey in 1948."

    It is Feinstein’s potential for heresy against the new liberal orthodoxy that is causing her party to threaten to take away her status as ranking member if the Democrats regain the majority, not her age. It turns out Democrats aren’t as forgiving of elderly politicians as we might have thought. After several months of doing their best to ignore former Vice President Joe Biden’s declining abilities and his unending string of inexplicable gaffes, Democrats have had it with one particular senior citizen: Sen. Dianne Feinstein.In a story published by The New York Times the weekend before Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s...

  • Destroying the Institutions We Inherited

    In the 21st century, hallmark American and international institutions have lost much of their prestige and respect. Politics and biases explain the lack of public confidence in organizations and institutions such as the World Health Organization, the Commission on Presidential Debates, the Nobel Peace Prize, the Pulitzer Prizes and the Academy Awards. The overseers entrusted with preserving these institutions all caved to short-term political pressures. As a result, they have mostly destroyed what they inherited. The World Health Organization's director-general, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, is the first person without a medical degree to hold that position. Why? No one really knows....

    Nick Pacilio, the Senior Communications Manager for Twitter, previously worked for vice presidential candidate Kamala Harris as her Press Secretary. Harris, the Senator from California, was announced as Joe Biden’s vice presidential pick on Monday evening, after months of speculation. Harris was one of the front-runners, along with Susan Rice, Obama’s former National Security Advisor, and Gretchen Whitmer, the governor of Michigan.

    EASTERN WISCONSIN — Rural Wisconsin is crossed with state highways, but you might not recognize them. Two-lane country roads dotted with red barns, granaries, and farmhouses, where passing is nearly always permitted if you feel the urge to tear around the loaded semis and tankers that rule these parts. Shiloh Dairy is nowhere near the freeway, but Route 10 will take you within a stone’s throw. Nestled into the rolling countryside of Wisconsin, 25 miles west of Lake Michigan and the same south of Green Bay, Gordon Speirs keeps more than 4,000 head of cattle here.

  • Inform Your Liberal Friends What You're Voting For

    Unquestionably, it's becoming awkward to engage in conversations with your liberal friends. They are aghast to hear that you ‘still’ intend to vote for Donald Trump. They will refer to numerous elements of his personality which they don't like. They will refer to media reports, which surround them, portraying Trump in a highly negative light. So, how do you reach them? How do you convey to them what you are truly voting for in this election? Perhaps the following points will work for you.

    I guess VDH was on Tucker's show, and he said that what we are in now is a clash between the "zoom" class and the working class. The "zoom" class works at home and has every thing delivered to them(grubhub, amazon) and since they work at home, they have time and resources to be "woke". While the working class serving the "zoom" class such as delivering food(grubhub, truck drivers) are on the front lines in the pandemic.

    Although non-believers don’t realize it, and perhaps never will, Providence is keeping Western Society from being capsized by a Democrat-pushed complete Socialist State, where all lives—including innocent babes in the womb—don’t matter. It is the Almighty’s Providence now keeping the masses from despondency and despair even with all churches either closed, or restricting the number of longing souls who can attend scheduled services. It was only Providence that sent President Donald Trump back Home to the White House after two days of being treated for Coronavirus at the Walter Reed Medical Center; Providence that had average folk seeing straight through...
