  • Progressive Cause Greater Than Any Individual, by Theodore Roosevelt

    03/10/2017 7:08:20 AM PST · by ProgressingAmerica · 20 replies
    PROGRESSIVE CAUSE GREATER THAN ANY INDIVIDUALBy Theodore Roosevelt, October 14th, 1912 Just before entering the Auditorium at Milwaukee, an attempt was made on Colonel Roosevelt's life. The speech which follows is from a stenographic report, differing considerably from the prepared manuscript. - Editor's Note FRIENDS, I shall ask you to be as quiet as possible. I don't know whether you fully understand that I have just been shot; but it takes more than that to kill a Bull Moose. But fortunately I had my manuscript, so you see I was going to make a long speech, and there is a...

    The number of illegal immigrants handed over to authorities nationwide is less than 3 percent of what it was six years ago, thanks to a suite of sanctuary policies at the local level combined with a hands-off approach at the federal level in recent years. The New York and Los Angeles metro areas are the most popular destinations for illegal immigrants in the country. New York City has an estimated 500,000 illegal immigrants, according to the mayor’s office. New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio has vowed to oppose President Donald Trump’s executive order that promises to ramp up interior...
  • What We Can Do About COMMUNISM

    WHAT WE CAN DO ABOUT COMMUNISM, Avon Book Div, Hearst Corp. | 1963 | Russell V. DeLong, Ph.D.
    Russell V. DeLong, Ph.D. was a noted educator and churchman who surveyed history, philosophy and goals of Communism- and provides an inspiring program of action that answers the question: "What can I do about Communism? " The interest of the author in Communism stems from two primary factors. First-because of his professional consideration of the subject in connection with his classes in Political and Social philosophy; and second, because of his world travels and experiences behind the Iron Curtains.

    All of these forces, individually or collectively, are simply not as smart, as savvy, as powerful, or as persuasive as President Trump and his minions. My bet has always been and remains on the dragon slayer! The original story of Saint George and the Dragon dates back to the 7th century, the narrative maintaining that in a fictitious town in Libya there lived a king who chose to appease the evil dragon in the town’s lake that was poisoning the countryside. With the agreement of his subjects, the appeasement involved feeding the dragon two sheep every day. But when there...

    One of the less understood criticisms of progressivism is that it is totalitarian, not in the sense that kale-eating Brooklynites want to build prison camps for political nonconformists (except for the ones who want to lock up global-warming skeptics) but in the sense that it assumes that there is no life outside of politics, that there is no separate sphere of private life, and that church, family, art, and much else properly resides within that sphere. Earlier this week, I expressed what seemed to me an unobjectionable opinion: that politics has a place, that politics should be kept in its...

    Zero Hedge ^ | 9FEB17 | Tyler Durden
    They hate you. Leftists don’t merely disagree with you. They don’t merely feel you are misguided. They don’t think you are merely wrong. They hate you. They want you enslaved and obedient, if not dead. Once you get that, everything that is happening now will make sense. And you will understand what you need to be ready to do. You are normal, and therefore a heretic. You refuse to bow to their idols, to subscribe to their twisted catechisms, to praise their false gods. This is unforgivable. You must burn. Crazy talk? Just ask them. Go ahead. Go on social...

    Donald Trump’s victory in November was not only the most important election result of our lifetimes, but ranks as one of the most significant events in recorded history, on par with the French Revolution or the fall of the Berlin Wall. And I’ll tell you why. Western society is super-saturated with leftist propaganda. Politically astute non-leftists see it everywhere and complain about it incessantly — because it is ubiquitous. In fact, most of our waking hours are spent noticing, commenting upon, getting outraged by and then futilely combatting the endless, relentless leftist slant to everything in modern culture. Every news...

    ItÂ’s the leftÂ’s secret weapon in the continuing resistance. While Facebook is getting a lot of the credit for making last weekendÂ’s WomenÂ’s March happen, a somewhat obscure tech platform called the Action Network was critical to organizersÂ’ efforts. And in the wake of that worldwide protest, the platform is already helping to push the movement forward. A nonprofit created by progressives who hoped to build a political movement with staying power, the Action Network offers tools for sending emails, organizing marches and events, fundraising, creating petitions, conducting surveys and connecting with other organizers. Activists who use the tools can...

    “When California does well, America does well. And when California hurts, America hurts.” Perhaps this is one reason Trump is willing to cut off funding to Sanctuary Cities While America’s new President Donald Trump was busy signing Executive Orders to boost energy independence and jobs in the United States, California Governor Jerry Brown was busy promising upcoming battles with Republican-controlled Washington, and used his 2017 State of the State address to double down on California’s regressive “progressive” policies. On the heels of revealing faulty budget math that resulted in an additional $1.6 billion budget deficit, Brown dug his heels in...

Looking for assistance from fellow freepers, please point me to your go to conservative education sites.

    The biggest injustice that was perpetrated on people, tricked or forced to accept communism, was the destruction of the human spirit, the terror, torture, and brutal beatings people had to endure in the name of social justice Under communism we had all types of justice you progressive drones are demanding during your violent riots: gender, environmental, social, reproductive, and food justice, long before the millennial snowflakes started asking for safe spaces, crayons, and animals to pet because they are afraid of reality, and long before the regressive left started inventing new ways and outrageous euphemisms, such as “white privilege,” to...

    A List Of My Favorite Things I Learned From My Liberal Facebook Friends Social media now makes us more readily aware of our friends' and families' opinions, which can cause quite the collision in your friendships. However, it's important to remember that having friends with a difference of opinion around can provide for an opportunity to learn a little something from one another. Proving just that, let me present you with a list of things I learned from my friends on the left. political-dissonance Gender is an arbitrary societal construct, but Hillary must be elected because we need a female...

    In an official announcement on The Tom Joyner Morning Show, King said that the project, which he has dubbed Injustice Boycott, will aim to force the progressive cities to meet local activists’ demands regarding police brutality. And if those demands are not met within 43 days — by Martin Luther King Jr. Day — King says that he will activate Injustice Boycott supporters — more than 200,000 people, according to his estimate — to level a four-prong attack on commerce and government. King, who took a job as a justice columnist at The Daily News last year, said that the...
  • Progressive Christians to “Take Back Their Faith” After Election

    A week after the election, the Huffington Post published a blog entry in which Progressive Christians suggested what like-minded Christians should do in order to “take back their faith.” Still reeling from the election in which Donald Trump was elected president, several progressive Christians pondered the necessary steps to draw a stronger contrast between their brand of kindhearted progressive Christianity, and the kind of conservative, evangelical Christianity that helped elect Donald Trump. The responses were predictably representative of left-wing Christianity, which centered on re-emphasizing social justice issues and identity politics as the “loving,” compassionate, anti-Trumpian counterpart to the hate-filled Christianity...

    VATICAN CITY (AP) -- Pope Francis warned against what he called a "virus of polarization" and hostility in the world targeting people with different nationalities, races or beliefs, as he led a ceremony Saturday giving the Roman Catholic Church 17 new cardinals from six continents. The consistory ceremony in St. Peter's Basilica formally inducted the churchmen into the cardinals' ranks. Francis used his homily to caution the new "princes of the church," as cardinals are sometimes called, to guard against animosity creeping into the church as well, saying "we are not immune from this." The pope spoke of "our pitiful...

    This is a stunning, scary, sad time for America. In January, we will live in a world where Donald Trump is President, and right-wing majorities control both the Senate and the House. It hurts to think about it. In the coming days, many people will be scrambling to respond (and deciding whether or not to move to Canada.) There are a lot of unknowns. But here are some truths we know now. First, the Democratic Party must go through a reckoning. Donald Trump won the Rust Belt by stoking the economic and social anxiety that so many people feel in...
  • Why a Republican Might Win Bernie’s Home State

    Bernie is still beloved here, where 86 percent of voters in the Democratic primary supported him—his strongest showing in the country. But some political experts suggest the cost of Sanders-style progressive policies—including, most notably, the state’s failed single-payer health care system—is driving many voters away from the Democrats, substantially boosting the odds that Republicans could retake the governorship this November.

    Barack Obama can't stop talking about presidential candidate Donald Trump. Obama's recent stump speeches campaigning for Hillary Clinton are all about Trump. The billionaire real estate mogul is living inside Mr. Obama's head day and night. Obama's obsession is understandable. Trump embodies the socialist's worst nightmare. In 2008, Obama, like all socialists, promised his followers a land of milk and honey. Eight years later, he's delivered unemployment, poverty, food stamps, violence in the streets, open borders, drug cartels, heroin overdoses, terrorist attacks on our own soil, $10 trillion more debt, no economic growth, and radical Supreme Court judges. He has...
