  • California Democrats growing tired of Nancy Pelosi

    ... The statewide survey of California Democrats by UC Berkeley’s Institute of Governmental Studies found only 30 percent believe House Democrats should choose Pelosi to stay on as their leader should they win back the House of Representatives in 2018. Some 44 percent prefer somebody else taking over. Democrats have long watched in disappointment as Republicans consistently use Pelosi as “one of their main battering rams” in competitive House races, said Mark DiCamillo, director of the poll. “What California Democrats see is that Pelosi’s image in other parts of the country is not positive,” DiCamillo said, “and it becomes a...

September 7, 2017 Daniel Greenfield Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is an investigative journalist and writer focusing on the radical left and Islamic terrorism. Almost a century ago, President Woodrow Wilson watched approvingly as the title card appeared on the screen, "The former enemies of North and South are united again in defense of their Aryan birthright." Birth of a Nation was the first movie to play inside the White House. Many...

    David Mamet, Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright, once noted “I look back on my liberal political beliefs with a sort of wonder – as another exercise in self-involvement – rewarding myself for some superiority I could not logically describe” At the age of 60 he meet first conservative thinker. Upon closer examination he discovered that most conservative thoughts were based on real-world facts while “Liberalism is a religion. Its tenets cannot be proved, its capacity for waste and destruction demonstrated. But it affords a feeling of spiritual rectitude at little or no cost.” Sadly, he captures the reality and emotional allure of...
  • FOX has gone TOO far progressive, liberal and a snow storm of snowflakes. (my rant)

    Been watching FOX and MSM the last couple of days. Getting tired of trying to tell them apart based on their guests' stances on political/Trump issues on everything current and past. Juan Williams seems to be empowered and out of ranting control talking over people and yelling. Him along with a couple of females and Sheppie are repulsively biased which is now festered and oozing out.

    The banal news that Donald Trump Jr tried to get dirt on Hillary exposes Progressive delusions as a collective dementia unresponsive to actual facts.In 1848, Charles Mackay published Memoirs of Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds. The preface to his first edition explains the idea behind the title: THE OBJECT OF THE AUTHOR in the following pages has been to collect the most remarkable instances of those moral epidemics which have been excited, sometimes by one cause and sometimes by another, and to show how easily the masses have been led astray, and how imitative and gregarious men...

    Donald J. Trump is on the precipice of history; he is there because he is a man who will fight. He is on the verge of greatness with what could possibly be a truly transformational presidency, unlike that of the counterfeit hero, Barack Obama whose phony dreams and aspirations exposed him as a small man a mile wide yet less than an inch deep totally possessed with delusions of grandeur. Donald J. Trump is a man whose promise is greater than even the storied accomplishments of the greatest president of my lifetime, Ronald Reagan. Reagan gave his life to give...

    Years ago Marxist-socialist leftists, embarrassed at being Marxist-socialist leftists, made up a shiny new name for themselves, “progressives.” It’s a word that sounds like a garden of forward-thinking delights, but is simply code for the failed, human-spirit-destroying government-command-and control that birthed all the evil “isms” of the past. That’s why every time I hear a conservative commentator in print, radio, or on TV call lefty-socialists “progressives” my 200 billion brain cells swoon. The Fourth of July brings to mind how far alleged progressivism deviates from this nation’s founding freedoms. The government command-and-control against which the American revolutionaries fought was King...
  • Wrestling’s new villain calls himself ‘Progressive Liberal.’ Hillary’s on his shirt.

    **SNIP** His shtick is simple. He plays a smug liberal elitist who lectures the audience on political matters. His enemies are “Fox News maggots.” His fictional character hails from Washington, D.C. His wrestling shorts bear a donkey. He insults his fans’ Appalachian accents, correcting them — “Do you live in a holler? No, you live in a hollow.” He even calls his finishing signature wrestling move the “Liberal Agenda.” In one promo video, he wore a shirt patterned with dozens of photos of Hillary Clinton’s face, patched together in a strange collage, and he addressed AMW’s fans: “You people need...

    The advent of Safe Space on college campuses and public high schools is dangerous and was designed to make the next generation incapable of dealing with the real world. It is a long term project to ensure that more powers are given to Globalist governments because the individual will be incapable of managing the simple issues of daily life. What began as a project to “dumb-down” the population through grade school level television has moved on a stage. It is now important to ensure that the average citizen is completely incapable of dealing with the modern world. Part of this...

    Washington Examiner ^ | June 10, 2017 | Ryan Lovelace
    Forlorn liberals took refuge at the American Constitution Society's national convention in Washington this week, discussing whether to encourage the growth of the "deep state" resistance inside the government or fight President Trump from outside. "The election of Donald Trump was an assault on the federal bureaucracy," William Yeomans said to a room full of students and civil servants, including those recently displaced by Trump's administration. "His values are simply not consistent with the values of people who are committed to public service and who believe deeply in the importance of public service." snip UCLA law professor Jon Michaels said...

    Although many of us were hoping and wishing that Hillary Clinton would magically disappear, we awoke Monday to the grim news that the witch did not get on her broomstick and fly off into a storm to never return. It seems logical she needs a cash infusion, perhaps a little relevance. With the loss of the presidency to Donald Trump, wealthy donors and foreign government contributors pulled out of their annual donations to The Clinton Foundation and the Clinton Global Initiative, which had been “in business” since 2005, closed its doors.

WRITTEN BY Matthew Sedacca May 07, 2017 A month before the 2016 US presidential election, Colin Waugh and his wife bought their first firearm. Donald Trump’s campaign was taking an unprecedented turn, with the candidate baiting gun-rights supporters to exert their influence and suggesting that a loss in November would be evidence of a rigged system....

    The Leftist Democrat Communist Party refers to themselves as, "Progressives," or, "The Progressive Party." The Shakespearean style headline fits this classic story of Dem-wit dumbness.

Get your picket signs ready. Here is the headline: THE NOTORIOUS NORTHERN ARIZONA UNIVERSITY NOW HAS SIGNS OUTSIDE OF ON-CAMPUS RESTROOMS THAT ASK STUDENTS TO CONSIDER WHETHER THEY HAVE “PEE PRIVILEGE.”

    Most progressive groups oppose any expression of religion in the public square, and will likely oppose whatever this president does After President Donald Trump issued an executive order on religious freedom last week, the Left used its pre-written script to attack it even though it was dramatically scaled back from the draft that was leaked to left-wing media outlets in February. As if on cue, the Rev. Barry Lynn, president of Americans United for the Separation of Church and State, pounced, claiming the executive order “tramples” and “guts” the entire notion of religious freedom.

    The success of Marine Le Pen in the first round of the French presidential election has the global left resorting to its usual exaggerations and dire predictions of a fascist resurgence. As happened with the progressive smears of Donald Trump, Le Pen’s similar appeals to patriotism, national identity, and the need to defend the nation’s culture and interests are immediately turned into sinister dog-whistles for the crypto-fascists, racist hordes just waiting for the Great Leader to start the pogroms and fill the gulags. One hundred days into Trump’s administration, of course, nothing has happened that comes even close to beginning...

    In the age of “social justice” and other progressive creeds in prevailing Western discourse, the tragedies of millions of people in dozens of countries living under communist regimes are too often passed off as not being “real communism.” While many still view communism as a noble philosophy that may yet be implemented given improvements in technology or human nature, its ideological foundations depict not a utopian dream but a necessarily violent and destructive teaching. Since its emergence, communist ideologies have promoted violent revolution and brutal dictatorships far outstripping the worst excesses of non-communist governments. Today, the five communist regimes that...

    I just watched Season 2 , Episode 7, of Futurama, on Netflix. In this cute but endemically Leftist cartoon series, Richard Nixon is a recurrent character, always portrayed as a scientifically preserved, living head in a jar. He is always tricky, conniving, and stupid. But in this particular episode he runs for President in the year 3000. He is now depicted as one of the most typically evil, scheming, destructive personalities ever spawned. In fact—at the end—Nixon is ultimately transformed into a vicious, two-story tall, death cyborg who rampages around just killing people and crushing automobiles. He apparently does this...

    Progressivism has always been a quasi-religious faith, whose doctrines center on the perfectibility of man if only the educated classes (its very own priesthood) are able to command sufficient authority. Marxism, too, is a faith, one that denigrates other religions as the “opiate of the people.” Religions devolve into cults when they set themselves in opposition to the entire world outside their confines, and when they insist that their members hold unique insights and virtues, and so have a duty to shun and denigrate the “gentiles” (everyone else). Cult leaders understand that exposure to outsiders leads to a diminishment of...
