  • MSNBC Analyst Warns: Second Wave of Virus Is Coming, But Just for ‘Red America’ ‘Trump Voters’

    On MSNBC this afternoon, “conservative” analyst Rick Tyler was ready to make more hyperbolic predictions about red states getting “hit hard” by the coronavirus in coming months. Tyler even used the Memorial Day holiday to trash President Trump as a “debased” traitor to this country because he apparently hasn’t done anything to combat the coronavirus. . . . It’s really sad that the media can’t even put aide their hatred for President Trump for one day to honor all the lives lost protecting this country.

    Former Vice President and the presumptive 2020 Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden is looking to expand the number of swing states in play in this November’s election, targeting Republican-leaning states in his bid to unseat President Donald Trump. Alongside traditional battleground states like Ohio, Florida, North Carolina, and New Hampshire – the former three of which Trump won in 2016 – the Biden presidential campaign believes it can bring traditionally reliable GOP states into play, like Texas, Georgia, and Arizona, which hold a combined 65 electoral votes, or nearly a quarter of the 270 needed to win the election.

    The more we learn about coronavirus epidemics, the more it convinces us that pseudoscience is now accepted in all countries of the world as legitimate. Many articles show an unpleasant picture of not just the pandemic of the novel coronavirus, but the pandemic of massive, Orwellian politically induced psychosis. We've just begun analyzing the role of political preferences of various authorities in dealing with the epidemics. The initial response of United States governors to the coronavirus was quite dissimilar, depending on their party affiliation. The phenomenon was also independently discovered by Prof. James R. Rogers and is currently gaining traction....
  • Red and Blue America Aren’t Experiencing the Same Pandemic; The disconnect is already shaping, even distorting, the nation’s response.

    Even a disease as far-reaching as the coronavirus hasn’t entirely crossed the chasm between red and blue America. In several key respects, the outbreak’s early stages are unfolding very differently in Republican- and Democratic-leaning parts of the country. That disconnect is already shaping, even distorting, the nation’s response to this unprecedented challenge—and it could determine the pandemic’s ultimate political consequences as well. A flurry of new national polls released this week reveals that while anxiety about the disease is rising on both sides of the partisan divide, Democrats consistently express much more concern about it than Republicans do, and they...

    You’ve got Oregonians seeking to cascade into Idaho, Virginians who identify as West Virginians, Illinoians fighting to escape Chicago, Californians dreaming of starting a 51st state, and New Yorkers who think three states are better than one. Separation fever is sweeping the nation as quixotic but tenacious bands of frustrated rural dwellers, suburbanites and conservatives seek to break free from states with legislatures increasingly controlled by liberal big cities and metropolitan strongholds. “Oregon is controlled by the northwest portion of the state, Portland to Eugene. That’s urban land, and their decisions are not really representing rural Oregon,” said Mike McCarter,...

    I cannot go into details because I don't want to harm the innocent parties involved, but here is the basic true story: My workplace is exceedingly liberal. A few conservatives, but we're outnumbered. I don't hide my views, but I also don't get in fights with others. Honestly. Seven or eight months ago, maybe longer, I was told my comments offended people and could get me fired. I asked what the specific comments were, and no one could tell me. The response was basically "We all have heard you say things..." A few days into the new year, I was...

    They use it to call it "voting with their feet" or something like that.  Indeed, people are voting with their feet by trading in their old blue shoes for shining red shoes. This is from Merrill Matthews, a resident scholar with the Institute for Policy Innovation in Dallas, Texas: According to an Election Data Services analysis of the Census Bureau report, "The population projections point toward a ten [congressional] seat change over 17 states across the nation by year 2020." Seven states are projected to gain one or more congressional seats after the 2020 election; 10 states are projected lose one...

    FULL TITLE: Tate Reeves Wins Mississippi Governor Race: “I’ll Make Mississippi the Safest Place for an Unborn Child” Democrats hoped that trashing President Trump enough would lead to an election victory in the state of Mississippi last night. Instead, pro-life Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves on Tuesday defeated pro-abortion Democratic Attorney General Jim Hood to become the next governor of the state. Reeves won with 52.2% of the vote compared to 46.6% for Hood, a 48,000+ vote margin of victory. Reeves will succeed pro-life Gov. Phil Bryant, who is limited by term limits and was a pro-life champion. Brad Parscale, Trump...

    Why we wrote this——Democrats might assume that a minority people in North Carolina’s poorest county would vote with them. But as one observer puts it, “This is not about Native American identity. This is about rural Indian values.” Pembroke, N.C. — The Lumbee Indians of Robeson County about broke Dan McCready’s heart. The former Marine and clean-energy investor spent 27 months wooing the Lumbee Tribe in rural North Carolina, in a bid to turn the state’s 9th Congressional District Democratic for the first time since 1963. They were so close. Mr. McCready’s Carolina-blue signs were all over the suburbs of...

    The cycles of history can be very interesting indeed. The American South is the home of America’s original sin. It is the one region of this nation that turned its back on the principles of the Founding and did so for decade after decade — imposing first the tyranny of slavery, then the oppression of Jim Crow. Even after the Civil War, the South was a virtual nation-within-a-nation, a world apart where only white citizens could fully enjoy the blessings of liberty. And, make no mistake, the South paid for its sins. The Civil War decimated its male population and...

    I always liked the idea of Texas—a massive, arrogant, sun-scorched, red-blooded homeland for impenitent cattle rustlers who provided a cultural counterpoint to the sniffly, snobby classes of the Eastern seaboard. Back when America was all about expansion rather than retreat, Texas was far more American than anything you could scrape up from either coastline.
  • 5 Myths About the State and Local Tax Deduction’s Cap

    06/25/2019 2:21:35 PM PDT · by Tolerance Sucks Rocks · 16 replies
    Ever since the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act passed in late 2017, Democrats and a few Republicans have decried how the law’s $10,000 cap of the state and local tax deduction harms schools, local communities, home values, first responders, and middle-class families. Fast forward almost two years later and these false claims are not going away. House Democrats recently announced a hearing scheduled for Tuesday where many of the common myths are likely to be repeated. Here are a few of the most common misconceptions. Myth #1: The Cap Hurts Middle-Class Taxpayers Before the 2017 tax cut capped the state...

    The illegal alien population has boomed in at least three red states won by President Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election, new analysis reveals. Pew Research Center analysis finds that in Louisiana, North Dakota, and South Dakota — three states that went overwhelmingly for Trump over failed Democrat candidate Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election — the illegal alien population has increased over the last ten years. Between 2007 and 2017, Louisiana — which went nearly 60 percent for Trump in the 2016 election — has an illegal alien population that has grown by 15,000. In North Dakota, where...

    GORMANIA, W.Va. -- Life here along the North Branch of the Potomac River is very different than life 162 miles downriver. There is raw natural beauty that takes your breath away. Under your feet flows the Potomac, above you the Allegheny Plateau, and the ascent toward Mt. Storm beckons with forests filled with red spruce, balsam fir and mountain ash. Hawks and eagles float above you. Snakes, deer, squirrels and bears walk or slither past you. Then there's the tragic beauty in town. Along U.S. Route 50, buildings that once held banks and stores and homes stand as memorials of...

    Amazon isn’t the only one fed up with New York’s ridiculous tax rates. Plenty of companies are packing their bags and looking for office space in states with more business-friendly policies. There’s just one problem: A lot of these top firms can’t stand the conservative laws that make their new homes so successful. AllianceBernstein, another firm fleeing the Empire State’s stifling economy, just announced that it’s relocating its $70 million headquarters to Nashville. But before it moves, the CEO is warning Tennessee: It’s not a fan of religious liberty. And AllianceBernstein is proving it by fighting the state’s faith-based adoption...

    • 2016 Presidential Electoral Results - Hillary 232, Trump 306 • Hillary Clinton won the popular vote The next national election will be contentious. Given that Democrats have literally lost their minds over the last one, they plan on never losing another national election. There is no doubt that Democrats, especially new leaders coming on the scene, want a secular socialist government with all vestiges of Judeo-Christianity removed. It competes with their progressive socialist theology. They will not abide with another Republican win. This is how they think they will do it.

    While most attention has been focused on immigrants trying to enter the United States over America’s southern border, there is legal migration taking place that has been largely ignored, though it may have at least as much economic and political impact as the other. People are moving out of high-tax states to Florida and other states with lower tax burdens. Florida’s new governor, Ron DeSantis, mentioned the movement in a speech to the Club for Growth, which describes itself as “a national network of over 250,000 pro-growth, limited government Americans who share in the belief that prosperity and opportunity come...
  • Incredible New Study Reveals Conservatives Dominate Much More of America Than Most People Think

    Recent polling has some good news for the conservative cause: More Americans identify as conservative than as liberal. Gallup’s 2018 tracking polls in all 50 U.S. states asked respondents to self-identify as either liberal, conservative or moderate. The aggregated results, which were released Friday, show that more respondents identified as liberal than as conservative in only six states. Gallup previously reported that on a national level, conservatives outnumbered liberals 35 percent to 26 percent in 2018. The states where the number of self-identified liberal residents exceeded the number of conservatives were Hawaii, New Hampshire, New York, Massachusetts, Vermont and Washington....

    You could be forgiven if you thought that the media onslaught against conservatives the last few years would have an effect on how most of the country views the right. That media campaign - directed against Donald Trump but also against conservatives - has been unprecedented in its scope and intensity. Conservatives are routinely portrayed as racist, sexist, homophobic, anti-Muslim, and paranoid xenophobes.  But Gallup found some remarkable conservative strength all across the country. Their latest survey shows that liberals outnumber conservatives in only 6 states and that there are 25 states where conservatives are polling above their national average....
