  • Liberals Prefer Illegal Aliens Over Your Kids

    03/23/2017 3:39:48 PM PDT · by Kaslin · 33 replies ^ | March 23, 2017 | Derek Hunter
    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 Channels 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 its like to be an outspoken conservative in the sea of liberalism that is Hollywood during a conservation about attending President Donald Trumps inauguration in January. Youve gotta be real careful around here. You get beat up if you dont believe what everybody believes, Allen said about living in Hollywood. This is like 30s Germany....

    Democrats are taking to the streetsin waves. First it was women (the day after the inauguration), then it was immigrants (conflating legal and illegal aliens in the hope of making people think they are one in the same), then it was women again (because, presumably, someone ordered too many crocheted vagina hats the first time around and needed to unload them). Which group will be next? Allow me to offer some help.Should they go back to immigrants? No, no one cared last time. They cant repeat women after having just done women. Besides, like with immigrants, no one outside of...

    "The jig is up." Liberalism no longer possesses the moral authority to control our national politics. Liberals are terrified of Trump because they know that their great myth, once the light of consciousness has been shined on it, will dissolve as quickly as a grain of salt in water. As Steele puts it, the "president rolls his eyes when he is called a racist, and we all liberal and conservative alike know that he isn't one." Elizabeth Warren's Jeff Sessions rant was just that: a hysterical rant, and everyone knows it. "White guilt," and all that goes with...
  • Student union silence conservative students after criticizing Universitys free speech intolerance

    In an ironic turn of events, Lincoln Universitys student council silenced a conservative society after it had released a list showing that the university is very intolerant on free speech. Posting a recent survey by Spiked-online showed the results of UK Universities stances on free speech, and the survey showed that Lincoln University earns a red, which means has banned and actively censored ideas on campus. According to The Telegraph, upon posting the survey, the Lincoln University student union suspended the conservative societys social media accounts on the grounds that it brought the university into disrepute. Of course, the fact...

As many as a dozen groups have been blackmailed with demands for thousands of dollars in bitcoins. Some have even agreed to pay in the hopes the hacked information wont be released. In one case, a non-profit group and a prominent liberal donor discussed how to use grant money to cover some costs for anti-Trump protesters. The identities were not disclosed, and its unclear if the protesters were paid. At least some groups have paid the ransoms even though...

    Tuesday's address to a joint session of Congress was without a doubt the best speech President Donald Trump has ever given, perhaps the best speech to a joint session of Congress since the great Ronald Reagan. But who could watch it and not be embarrassed by our infantile, bitter Left? It was uplifting, optimistic, full of unifying words, and obvious to everyone. The pathetic exception was the Democrats in Congress. And those were the ones who did not boycott the event. Like spoiled children, who had not gotten their way, they refused to applaud at the most obvious good-for-the-country...

    The invite list by Democrat members of Congress reads like yet another staged protest like so many in recent years that resulted in costly mayhem and damage. This time, though, it wont be a protest on city streets, but rather within the halls of Congress itself as President Donald Trump takes center stage to lay out his year one agenda for the nation to the legislators responsible for turning that agenda into law. Both Democrats and the Establishment Media see it as yet another opportunity to try and challenge and embarrass the president. The anti-president mood will be unprecedented. Remarkable...

  • New audiobook release: The Challenge of Waste, by Stuart Chase

    It's that time again, another audiobook has been finalized and ready for download. The Challenge of WasteWhat's interesting about this 1922 book, is that Stuart Chase, who would a decade later coin the term "New Deal" and be an adviser to FDR, based much of his opinions for this book on a study about waste which was commissioned by Herbert Hoover. That's because Hoover himself didn't stop being a progressive until seeing his own failures as president and Franklin Roosevelt doubling down on what clearly did not work. Hoover, like any other early 20th century progressive, was utterly obsessed with...

    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...

The words progress and progressive evoke images of enlightened reformers selflessly promoting justice and overcoming ignorance and bigotry. I guarantee, however, that anyone who reads Thomas C.

Four months after the Democrats warned that refusing to accept the outcome of the presidential election would tear the country apart, they are refusing to accept the outcome of the presidential election. In coordinated nationwide demonstrations, in random outbreaks of campus violence, in shrill denunciations and boycotts, a secession has taken place. A non-geographic civil war has seemingly been declared. In rejecting the outcome of an election in...

I find that passage particularly relevant today within American Christendom. . . . .

    On the surface of it, it really is mystifying. I was a kid in the 1980s and 1990s, and I remember well how most middle-American adults in my life thought and spoke of Donald Trump at that time. He was a Manhattanite billionaire playboy who couldnt stay off the talk shows and tabloids. His name and image were synonymous with obscene wealth and a decadent lifestyle. He treated women badly, it was known. Small business people, farmers, and factory workers rolled their eyes at Donald Trump. His values could not have had less to do with theirs. Many probably hated...

With the Democrat party seemingly in total upheaval after the 2016 Presidential election, it boggles the mind at how fast political fortunes can change these days. Democrats, liberals, leftist and progressives have arguably realized that the current system of things political has become impenetrable to them, and that they will not move forward by gaming the existing political machinery any longer.

    We will never understand liberals and progressives until we recognize that they often see reality as a social construct subject to being challenged and changed. For example, throughout the world, boys and girls have different toy preferences. Typically, boys like to play with cars and trucks, whereas girls prefer dolls. Liberals explain this with the assertion that boys and girls are socialized and encouraged to play with different types of toys by their parents, peers and "society." Growing scientific evidence suggests that toy preferences have a biological origin. Even studies of male and female primates find that they exhibit similar...

The laws and moral codes--the rules--that properly govern human conduct arise from, and must be compatible with, the biological, psychological. and social nature of man. 2. The liberal agenda's Modern Parental State violates all of the rules that make ordered liberty possible. 3. The modern...

    My wife subscribes to a magazine, the very sight of which turns my stomach. She believes that its beneficial to have this reading matter around so we can know how the non-deplorables think. But as a retired college professor, I know whatever is to be known on this subject. The unpalatable piece of mail that arrives to my disgust each month is called New York, and it is cram full of PC clichs. The lead tirade is usually from Jonathan Chait, who lately has been railing against the plutocrat and Putin-look-alike who is about to enter the White House. Chait...

    I haven't said too much about this election since the results....but this is how I feel.... I'm noticing that a lot of "YOU" aren't graciously accepting the fact that your candidate lost. In fact you seem to be posting even more hateful things about those who voted for Trump. Some of you are apparently "triggered" because you are posting how "sick" you feel about the results. How did this happen you ask? Well, here's how: You created "us" when you attacked our freedom of speech. You created "us" when you attacked our right to bear arms. You created "us" when...

    Regular readers of FEE know that one of our beats has been the early history of the administrative State as built by Progressives at the turn of the 20th century. It was a different kind of State than the one that came before, a modern state knew no limits to its power to intervene in the relationships between individuals. It set in motion a century of government growth and regulatory control over every aspect of life, and all these controls have lasted to this day. Why did they do it? The textbooks say that they loved the common man. They...

    I noted recently that educated and well-placed people today tend toward a stripped-down view of man and society that redefines family, religious, and communal ties as private preferences, thereby erasing their public importance. The effect is to promote exclusive reliance on the social authority of bureaucratic and commercial arrangements.The existence and sentimentalization of non-binding private connections, such as marriage as it is now understood, doesn’t affect that result. After all, how much reliance can be placed on connections that are thought to have no intrinsic function and can be dissolved at will?The tendency naturally concerns Catholics, because it leaves no...

    Purple, the same color as sour grapes, is not the color of unity. Purple is a color dividing America Up until 2008, American voters sent presidents to the White House. Some presidents were better than others, but at least they arrived as presidents. In 2008, American voters elected a community organizer as president, kicking off a new era in which activists would continue to be elected as presidents.

    Of all those whose predictions were dashed by this years presidential outcome (Trump is headed toward a major loss his Oct. 19 headline blared), few have been more exercised than the Washington Posts E.J. Dionne (white identity politics and male self-assertion triumphed he railed the day after). Yesterday, in a piece titled America will soon be ruled by a minority, he joined the chorus now condemning the undemocratic Electoral Collegein the name of the Founders, no less, the very men who created it. Ever the good progressive, he fails to appreciate the role states were meant to play in ordering...

    Independent Institute ^ | 28 Nov, 2016 | Angelo M. Codevilla
    Comrade, your statement is factually incorrect. Yes, it is. But it is politically correct. The notion of political correctness came into use among Communists in the 1930s as a semi-humorous reminder that the Partys interest is to be treated as a reality that ranks above reality itself. Because all progressives, Communists included, claim to be about creating new human realities, they are perpetually at war against natures laws and limits. But since reality does not yield, progressives end up pretending that they themselves embody those new realities. Hence, any progressive movements nominal goal eventually ends up being subordinated to the...
