    Welcome back, Mr. O’Reilly, it’s been an interminably long week without you You can’t kill the messenger. Just ask the recently Fox news “dropped” Bill O’Reilly. You can’t kill the messenger when that messenger is savvy enough to spring right back ‘atcha with a brilliant delivery by way of a coming unstoppable podcast punch. The “No Spin Zone”, killed off by the Progressive Left principals now running Fox News is alive and kicking—with a promised 7 p.m., Monday return on Bill O’Reilly’s website.

    Shortly after the 2008 election, President Obama's soon-to-be chief of staff, Rahm Emanuel, infamously declared, "You never let a serious crisis go to waste." He elaborated: "What I mean by that (is) it's an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before." Disasters, such as the September 2008 financial crisis, were thus seen as opportunities. Out of the chaos, a shell-shocked public might at last be ready to accept more state regulation of the economy and far greater deficit spending. Indeed, the national debt doubled in the eight years following the 2008 crisis. During the 2008 campaign,...

    Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini have become, for many of us today, mere Hollywood villains – generic personifications of evil or (in Mussolini's case) buffoonish authoritarianism. Yet their ideologies were rooted in specific philosophical ideas – ideas which had many respectable adherents in their day. Dictator Fanboys One person who understands this is Jonah Goldberg, author of the 2007 book Liberal Fascism: The Secret History of the American Left from Mussolini to the Politics of Meaning. Ten years on, the book still holds up. Goldberg argues, provocatively, that fascism shared roots in common with what we call modern liberalism or...
  • Progressives take on establishment Democrats at town halls

    Those rowdy progressives shouting down Republicans at town-hall meetings are starting to train their sights on establishment Democrats. Sen. Dianne Feinstein, California Democrat, was booed when she refused to denounce U.S. airstrikes on Syria or endorse a single-payer health-care system at a public meeting Monday in San Francisco. “If you don’t like me, don’t stay. That’s easy,” Ms. Feinstein told the crowd in video posted by NBC Bay Area. The audience of several hundred waved printed cards from Indivisible SF with the messages “Agree” and “Disagree,” which have also become common at Republican town halls. The same day, Democratic National...

    Listen to the progressive's own words blatantly saying blacks and minorities are unable to get ID. The best part is blacks themselves state how easy it is to get ID and no one walks around without ID. The video was made by Ami Horowitz, a conservative Jew who does a lot of these man on the street interviews.
  • Could It Be Time To Deny White Men The Franchise?

    Some of the biggest blows to the progressive cause in the past year have often been due to the votes of white men. If white men were not allowed to vote, it is unlikely that the United Kingdom would be leaving the European Union, it is unlikely that Donald Trump would now be the President of the United States, and it is unlikely that the Democratic Alliance would now be governing four of South Africa's biggest cities. If white men no longer had the vote, the progressive cause would be strengthened. It would not be necessary to deny white men...

    Here's why it's so hard to introduce anything but progressive ideas in academia or government. They got control of both more than 100 years ago. "The regulatory state and the administrative state were both born around the same time, at the turn of the century (19th to 20th)," Tiffani Jones Miller of the University of Dallas pointed out at the annual meeting of the Philadelphia Society on April 1, 2017. "Progressives created the American Historical Association, the American Economic Association, the American Political Science Association and the American Sociological Association and American research universities."

    "For without America, there is no free world" The ‘progressive’ left has worked overtime in the de-Americanizing of America. And for good reason! If our primary language of English eventually really does become replaced with ‘press whatever number for’ Spanish or Eubonics or French or English, etc. - and Thanksgiving, Christmas or the Fourth of July become just another day off from work, taking a back seat to Ramadan, then the rich culture of America is dead. And our North American continent will be just another landmass stuffed full of walking dead - like what is left of the rest...

    Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam. A civil war has begun. This civil war is very different than the last one. There are no cannons or cavalry charges. The left doesn’t want to secede. It wants to rule. Political conflicts become civil wars when one side refuses to accept the existing authority. The left has rejected all forms of authority that it doesn’t control. The left has rejected the outcome of the last two presidential elections won by Republicans. It has rejected the judicial authority of...

    Now that Steve Bannon has been kicked from the National Security Council, a group of liberal Democrats are urging President Trump to take it a step further and kick the chief strategist out of the White House altogether. Several of these Democrats from the Congressional Progressive Caucus labeled Bannon a white supremacist and nationalist and blamed him for being a chief architect of Trump's two travel bans aimed at Muslim-majority countries. They argued that Bannon needs to be shown the door. Congressional Progressive Caucus Peace and Security Taskforce chairman Rep. Barbara Lee, D-Calif., said a resolution she introduced in February...

    HARTFORD, Conn. (WTNH)– Governor Dannel Malloy will announce help for families worried about President Trump‘s deportation policies. He is calling this a toolkit for families concerned about immigration enforcement. We know Governor Malloy has had his differences with President Trump on the issue of immigration. Now, the Governor plans to outfit concerned families with what he’s calling a toolkit. It sounds like it’s going to be mostly information for families worried about Trump administration immigration enforcement policies. Especially if the worry is that parents or guardians are going to be detained or deported by the federal government. The worry is...

    It hasn’t been a good few months for the Democratic Party, and if its activists’ reaction to the Congressional Black Caucus meeting with President Donald Trump is any indication, it’s not going to get better. Under former President Barack Obama’s stewardship, Democrats lost the 2016 presidential election, House, Senate, governorships and state legislatures across the country. Now they’re dealing with an identity crisis with no clear solution — one that is primed to cause more intraparty conflict than the tea party caused the Republican Party. Despite all this failure, they succeeded at one thing: throwing away the old and creating...

    Responding to the latest warnings by U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions that Department of Justice funds will be withheld from sanctuary cities, Mayor Eric Garcetti said Monday he will fight efforts by the Trump administration to take away federal funding needed for law enforcement in Los Angeles. Garcetti said that such actions would be unconstitutional, adding that the city’s policies are “designed to keep our residents safe.” “Slashing funds for first-responders, for our port and airport, for counterterrorism, crime-fighting and community-building serves no one — not this city, not the federal government, not the American people,” he said. “We will...

    Since President Donald Trump's election, monthly lectures on social justice at the 600-seat Gothic chapel of New York's Union Theological Seminary have been filled to capacity with crowds three times what they usually draw. In January, the 181-year-old Upper Manhattan graduate school, whose architecture evokes London's Westminster Abbey, turned away about 1,000 people from a lecture on mass incarceration. In the nine years that Reverend Serene Jones has served as its president, she has never seen such crowds. "The election of Trump has been a clarion call to progressives in the Protestant and Catholic churches in America to move out...

    Progressives Devolving: President Trump effectively destroyed his opponents' identities--everything they think, believe in, embrace, base their behavior on, agree with their friends about, What we've been witnessing is their pitiful reactions It’s easy to deride the aberrant behavior of the leftists we’ve been unhappily witness to, both over the course of the presidential campaign and particularly since Donald J. Trump ascended to the presidency on November 8th, 2016. After all, they’ve never recovered from the Bush v Gore race of 2000! But as a wise neighbor told me years ago about an exceptionally vile person we both knew, “She’s more...

    It was a rural uprising—and it looks like it will remain that way for now. We have yet to see the consequences that Republicans will have to deal with concerning their retreat from their promise to repeal and replace Obamacare, but that’s for another day. Out of the 100 fastest growing counties in the country, based on U.S. Census data, 93 broke for Trump. The counties that are usually Democratic bastions have seen a sharp decrease in their populations. Moreover, even in blue states, the fastest growing counties are firmly in the Trump columns. One might say this development...

    A few weeks ago in this space I asked a simple question: How many victims of illegal alien crime will be enough to make Democrats and the media care about illegal alien crime?The answer was simple – there is no number. They’ll never care because they’ve hitched their fate to the prospect of legalizing illegals and winning their votes. But the problem they back-burner for political gain still smolders, and last week it claimed another victim…all in the name of “progress.”Montgomery County, Md., is one of the richest counties in the country. It’s also an extremely left-wing progressive county that...

    A Chicago couple is claiming its support for President Donald Trump has resulted in significant and continuous harassment from anti-Trump leftists, forcing the retail side of the business the couple owns in Chicago to shut down indefinitely. Suzzanne Monk and Alexander Duvel appeared on Fox News Channel’s “Fox and Friends” Sunday morning, during which the married couple explained they have been receiving numerous threats from people angry at Monk and Duvel for openly supporting Trump. “Well, I attended the [Trump] rally at the UIC Pavilion that got shut down, and while my husband was discussing that online, we actually drew...

    Actor Tim Allen bashed Hollywood liberals and their intolerant elitism during an appearance “Jimmy Kimmel Live” Thursday night. Allen, who stars on the hit ABC sitcom “Last Man Standing” as a conservative dad, is a conservative off the set, too. He discussed with Kimmel what it’s like to be an outspoken conservative in the sea of liberalism that is Hollywood during a conservation about attending President Donald Trump’s inauguration in January. “You’ve gotta be real careful around here. You get beat up if you don’t believe what everybody believes,” Allen said about living in Hollywood. “This is like ’30s Germany....
