  • Third of Dems Say It’s Racist For White People To Criticize Non-White Politicians

    The groupthink mentality in the Democratic Party has reached a new clown world level. A new poll out of Rasmussen reveals that a whopping 32% of Democrats and even 16% of Republicans say it is racist when a white person criticizes a non-white politician. So, to keep your views completely immune from criticism in 2019, just don’t be white. When the sample of 1,000 voters was asked if they thought President Trump was a racist, 47% said yes. This was down from similar polling data that said 50% to the same question back in January 2018. When asked to define...
  • How health care can make Republicans winners in 2020

    Most Democrats running for president are promising to take away your private health care insurance in favor of a government-run health care system. Along with the tax-raising implications of that promise, Democrats have given Republicans a remarkable opening in 2020: Winning an election on health care. Here’s how they can do it. First, the Democrats have locked themselves into positions that are beyond illogical. Consider these two Democratic positions: 1. They are demanding the end of private health insurance BECAUSE they say most Americans don’t have ACCESS to affordable health care. AT THE SAME TIME . . . 2. Democrats...
  • Here are the 4 Republicans who voted to condemn Trump's racist tweets

    The House voted 240-187 on Tuesday night to officially condemn racist language from President Donald Trump in a motion that was supported by four House Republicans. Trump on Sunday directed a series of tweets at Democratic Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib, Illhan Omar and Ayanna Pressley, saying the four congresswomen of color should "go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came." Ahead of Tuesday's resolution, different members of Congress, including some Republican lawmakers, criticized the President's rhetoric and condemned it as racist, but Trump has stood by the attacks, saying, "I don't...

    A White House meeting on Tuesday between President Trump and Republican congressional leaders was abruptly cancelled. Sens. John Thune (R-S.D.) and John Cornyn (R-Texas) said the 4 p.m. meeting had been called off but they were not sure why. The White House has yet to comment on the cancellation. A White House official said earlier Tuesday that Trump and GOP lawmakers planned to discuss “immigration priorities.” The cancellation of the meeting came after Thune, Cornyn and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) had already left to go to the White House, only to return several minutes later saying they had...

    On Tuesday, the Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI) sent NASA a formal complaint, asking the agency to withdraw the false claim that 97 percent of climate scientists agree that humans are the primary cause of global warming and climate change. The 2013 study purporting to demonstrate that number was fatally flawed and proved no such thing."The claim that 97% of climate scientists believe humans are the primary cause of global warming is simply false," CEI attorney Devin Watkins said in a statement. "That figure was created only by ignoring many climate scientists’ views, including those of undecided scientists. It is time...

    GOP legislators (140) voted for a bill drafted by business groups and Democrats which provides a green card giveaway to 300,000 Indian contract workers and dramatically increases the incentives for more Indian graduates to take college graduate jobs in the United States. The 36- to-65 vote means the bill moves to the Senate, where GOP Senators are pushing a matching giveaway bill which is backed by Democrat Senator and presidential hopeful, Sen. Kamala Harris. Only 57 of 197 GOP legislators — and only eight Democrats — present voted against the giveaway. The GOP’s House leader, Rep. Kevin McCarthy, voted for...

    A new Gallup poll shines a spotlight on the deep political divide in America and surely points to what the upcoming presidential election will be about. Gallup asked, "How proud are you to be an American?" Seventy-six percent of Republicans said "extremely proud" compared with 22 percent of Democrats. Broken down by age, 63% of those over 65 said "extremely proud," and only 24% of those 18 to 29. This tells us something about Nike's recent move to pull its Betsy Ross flag sneakers from the marketplace, having taken guidance from its ex-football star anti-hero, now-Nike corporate spokesman, Colin Kaepernick....

    DENVER -- A scathing editorial in the Denver Post over the weekend took aim at the Rocky Mountain Gun Owners group and its influence over Colorado politics. The editorial was written by Joshua Hosler, the former chairman of the El Paso County GOP. In it, Hosler calls the RMGO, “Colorado’s Taliban,” and said the group uses Chicago-style tactics to punish Republicans who do not fall in lock step with their agenda. “Anyone who has been around politics in Colorado for at least an election or two knows that RMGO and its leader Dudley Brown have bullied more Republicans than Democrats...

    There isn’t much today in the way of entertainment celebrating conservatism, America, and President Donald Trump, but three young, beautiful ladies are making a splash with patriotic — an humorous — songs about all three. They call themselves “The Deplorable Choir,” and they’ve just released a new video song that not only encapsulates the greatness of being an American, regardless of race, creed, sex, or any other defining characteristic.

    With the first round of Democratic Party debates behind us, Americans have now heard from their candidates why they think they should run the country. One theme permeates the messages of all these Democrats. America is not fair, and they aspire to be president to make things fair. Elizabeth Warren: "When you've got an economy that does great for those with money and isn't doing great for everyone else, that is corruption, pure and simple. We need to call it out. We need to attack it head on." Kamala Harris: "For too long, the rules have been written in the...

    The Trump rally soundtrack still includes "Tiny Dancer" and "Memory," the theme from Cats. There are still chants of "lock her up" and "build that wall." But four years later, this isn't the same shoestring Trump campaign that stumbled its way to victory in 2016. One indication of the difference came the night before President Trump's attention-grabbing rally in Orlando to kick of his re-election effort. Volunteers gathered at a Brazilian steakhouse in a nondescript strip mall a few miles away. In a banquet hall with sticky floors and ice-cold air conditioning, the volunteers responded to an hour-long PowerPoint presentation...

    President Donald Trump's freewheeling style is one of the main reasons that Americans rejected the conventional candidates and instead elected him to serve as president of the United States. While he is undeniably entertaining and possesses personal magnetism that helped make him a business tycoon and television star, when it comes to his leadership concerning Iran, the stakes are too high for Trump to act as if he is performing in a reality TV show. Iran is the world's largest state sponsor of terrorism. The Islamic Republic's dangerous tentacles reach worldwide, where it provides support to violent terrorist groups. The...

    A new study shows Americans have little understanding of their political adversaries—and education doesn’t help.Americans often lament the rise of “extreme partisanship,” but this is a poor description of political reality: Far from increasing, Americans’ attachment to their political parties has considerably weakened over the past years. Liberals no longer strongly identify with the Democratic Party and conservatives no longer strongly identify with the Republican Party.What is corroding American politics is, specifically, negative partisanship: Although most liberals feel conflicted about the Democratic Party, they really hate the Republican Party. And even though most conservatives feel conflicted about the Republican Party, they really...

    “Whether I shall turn out to be the hero of my own life, or whether that station will be held by anybody else,” Charles Dickens wondered. He feared that if he wasn’t the hero, then he would surely be the victim of his own life.Dickens, like most of us, would like to be the hero. That means that we have achieved our important goals and that we are, at least somewhat, in control of our own lives.A hero is a person who is admired or idealized for courage, outstanding achievements, or noble qualities.  Heroes have a different outlook on...

    The wide gender gap in American politics is not just down to what women want MEN have long tended to favour Republican candidates; women have voted more for the “mommy party” than men in every election since 1992. Yet the gap now looks like a chasm. In 1992 women and men disagreed over which party they identified with by 11 points. The margin has since widened to 23 points (see chart). For comparison, Donald Trump won white voters by 21 points in 2016 and lost Hispanics by 36 points. It is no mystery why so many women are abandoning the...

    California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) in an interview published Monday said the Republican Party is headed for the “waste bin of history.” In an interview with Politico, Newsom compared national Republicans to the GOP in California in the 1990s. California Republicans were once a force, but have seen their power disappear over the last two decades. Washington Republicans will "go the same direction — into the waste bin of history, the way Republicans of the '90s have gone. That’s exactly what will happen to this crop of national Republicans,” Newsom told Politico. Former California Gov. Pete Wilson's (R) push for...

    The House Judiciary Committee unanimously passed a bill which would permanently reauthorize the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund Wednesday, the day after comedian Jon Stewart gave impassioned testimony in support of the bill in video that quickly went viral. The bill will now go to the floor for a full vote in the House of Representatives, where it is likely to pass. It's unclear whether Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell will take up the bill in the Senate, although Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of New York said Wednesday that he was "imploring, pleading, even begging" McConnell to bring the bill...

    A small but growing number of Republican lawmakers are urging action on climate change, driven by shifting sentiment among GOP voters and the effects of global warming, from stronger hurricanes to more-destructive wildfires. The group backs policies rooted in what they consider GOP principles, favoring market-based solutions rather than government regulations. Many are loyal supporters of President Trump, but they part with him on climate change, which he has dismissed as hyped. Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz of Florida says the GOP needs to advance sound conservative proposals to combat climate change and embrace science, or risk long-term political damage. “How...
