    But they would be wise to look out the windows of their offices, scan the nation, and see just how not-all-alone Trump really is America’s First Civil War began on July 4, 1776 with the ratification of the Colonies’ Declaration of Independence. An international and internecine war followed. On the American Revolutionaries side of the battlefield stood the irregular Militia from various states and the regular Continentals – the originating nucleus of today’s United States Army. On the British side marched the soldiers of the British Army – the most experienced and best fighting force in the world. Their ranks...
  • David Brooks: Anti-Trumpism Has Failed

    After more than a year of relentless opposition to President Donald Trump, New York Times "conservative" columnist David Brooks has thrown his hands in the air and has declared that blind resistance is futile. Notably absent in his April 9 column is that he himself has been guilty of many of the excesses and extreme hubris of the anti-Trumpers.  Brooks lays out his case without much of a sense of critical self-awareness in The Failures of Anti-Trumpism:

    The thrusting green shoots of early spring and visions of cotton-tailed rabbits confounding my wife’s splendid Hungarian dogs by their acrobatic zig-zag jumping have incited me to make some predictions about this midterm-election year. Congress has given notice that it has effectively shut down, having passed its egregious omnibus-spending bill, as Senator Schumer and Minority Leader Pelosi welcomed Senator McConnell and Speaker Ryan back to the pre-Trump days of Congress’s just rolling the pork barrel around with no serious guidance from the White House and unfazed by overwhelming disapproval ratings in the polls. Eighty-five percent of Americans are currently contemptuous...

    Resistance is profitable The New York Times is selling tickets for a night with resistance leader Sally Yates. The Times is charging $30—and half-price tickets for subscribers—for a "rare conversation" with the former Obama Justice Department holdover who refused to enforce President Trump's executive order restricting travel from terrorist hot bed countries. "Join us for a rare conversation with Sally Yates, the former acting attorney general who was dismissed by President Trump last year after refusing to defend his first travel ban," the Times writes. Topics include prison reform, civil rights, and "the fine points of constitutional law." Yates herself...

    For more than two months, the FBI has failed to abide by a judge’s order to turn over all of former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe’s text messages, emails and SMS phone messages to a government watchdog group that has filed a lawsuit on behalf of a former senior FBI special agent. The communications in question are related to McCabe’s wife’s unsuccessful run for Virginia State senate and might also contain invaluable information on McCabe’s role in the Bureau’s investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email server used to send classified information, several former FBI sources and a government official told...

    Ross Gerber is a fund manager at Gerber Kawasaki. According to their webpage, they have over $650 Million in assets under management. Given Gerber's recent comments on social media, one must wonder if he has any Trump supporters as clients. In a now-deleted Tweet, Ross Gerber Tweeted from the official, verified @GerberKawasaki account: "If you are hosting or attending the Trump fundraiser in LA we will identify who you are to the media and public. We will boycott your business'." Mr. Gerber of course has every First Amendment right to dox and boycott people. However, as a fund manager, he...

    The Politistick ^ | 11/10/17 | Matthew K. Burke
    Now we are learning — not shockingly — that the false accusations against Judge Roy Moore are politically motivated. Deborah Wesson Gibson, one of Roy Moore’s accusers, is a member of Progressive Politics Alabama and is someone who worked on the political campaigns of both 2016 Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and former Obama regime Vice President Joe Biden, providing sign language services. Moreover, as the leading newspaper in Alabama reports, Gibson also provides services to leading Democrats like Sen. Patrick Murphy and Bill Nelson and shared campaign fliers of Roy Moore’s Democrat opponent, Doug Jones, for the Alabama election...

    By hook or by crook, the Deep State seeks to steal the nation from its patriots, and that’s the Sorry State of the Deep State No two stories relating to President Donald Trump and FORMER President Barack Obama, coming almost back to back this weekend, ever conveyed in perfect terms, the sorry state of the Deep State. Indeed, both stories coming as they did should go down as Sorry State of the Deep State 101. In a brazenly bizarre but most telling demand, the 2018 MIT Sloan Sports Analytics Conference forced allegiance to sworn secrecy on all attendees of an...

    What media coverage of a military parade tells us about the Left's madness. President Trump’s proposal for a military parade was met with total and absolute hysteria. Just like any and every other proposal that he makes. Military parades are a “public demonstration of power is characteristic of authoritarian regimes like North Korea and China,” the media screeched. That must be why we have them every year. The National Memorial Day Parade in Washington D.C. has been an annual event since it was revived to honor World War II veterans. But it’s subdued compared to other parades across the country...

    Former president working with Eric Holder to focus on redistricting efforts A group backed by former President Barack Obama participated at a D.C. gathering of deep-pocketed progressive donors strategizing to "restore progressive government" and to ensure fair redistricting in upcoming years. The gathering, hosted by the dark money Democracy Alliance network, is part of the network's spring investment conference and national donor summit held in D.C to plot resistance against President Trump and Republicans. The summit consists of numerous panels and discussions with key Democratic groups and players. Kelly Ward, the executive director of the Obama-linked National Democratic Redistricting Committee...

    One of the most devastating political earthquakes in modern American history took place between 10PM and Midnight in the inner rooms of the Clinton campaign in their VIP suite on the top floor of the Peninsula Hotel in Manhattan. The day started auspiciously enough, with RealClearPolitics continuing to show Hillary Clinton in the lead, just as she had led the polling average for the past 98 days. RCP predicted that Hillary Clinton would win 297 electoral votes to Trump’s 241, comfortably surpassing the 270 needed for victory. This prediction was mirrored by polling “guru” Nate Silver’s vaunted 538 website, which...

    Back around Thanksgiving time, we looked at some groundbreaking reporting from the Washington Free Beacon where they exposed some less than media-neutral activities by one member of the press. Janell Ross, a political reporter for the Washington Post, was found to have participated in a highly secretive, big dollar fundraising and strategy conference for the Democrats. To be clear, Ross was not there reporting on the conference as part of her job. She wrote no articles about it and the WaPo said they didn’t even know that she had gone. She was a participant in the event, even sitting in...

    Over the past several years, political movements have been a dime a dozen. After the economy crashed in 2008, we saw the rise of the Tea Party and Occupy Wall Street. Those two movements eventually petered out, but that made room for the overwhelming torrent of political movements that sprang up both before and after Trump’s election. On the right, there are anti-immigration movements, pro-life movements and movements based on patriotism and the support of Western values. On the left, there is Black Lives Matter, Antifa, Democratic Socialism, 3rd Wave Feminism, BAMN and a plethora of other lesser known political...

    For those who think California politics is on the far-left fringe of the national spectrum, stand by. The next election season, already well underway here, will showcase a younger generation of Democrats that is more liberal and personally invested in standing up to President Trump’s Washington than those leaving office. Here in the self-labeled “state of resistance,” the political debate is being pushed further left without any sign of a Republican renaissance to serve as a check on spending and social policy ambitions. Even some Republicans are concerned about the departure of Gov. Jerry Brown (D), who proved to be...

    Residents to get $500 a month, no questions asked, as starting point The mayor of Stockton, California, is leading an experiment with “universal basic income,” which is set to start by giving low-income residents $500 a month, no questions asked. Mayor Michael Tubbs calls his city “ground zero” for issues like wage stagnation, rising housing prices and loss of middle-class jobs that affect the nation. The Central Valley city went bankrupt in 2012, and for decades it has been trying to diversify its agriculture-based economy. “I feel that as mayor it’s my responsibility to do all I could to begin...
  • Kunstler: “The 'Resistance' Is Dragging The Country Into Dangerous Madness”

    01/29/2018 3:50:03 PM PST · by blam · 20 replies
    For those of us who are not admirers of President Trump, it’s even more painful to see the Democratic opposition descend into the stupendous dishonesty of the Russian Collusion story. When the intelligentsia of the nation looses its ability to think — when it becomes a dis-intelligentsia — then there are no stewards of reality left. Trump is crazy enough, but the “resistance” is dragging the country into dangerous madness. It’s hard not to be impressed by the evidence in the public record that the FBI misbehaved pretty badly around the various election year events of 2016. And who, besides...

    Hillary Clinton has hired two political operatives from her 2016 presidential campaign to help manage Onward Together, the project she founded this spring with former governor Howard Dean to fund and support a coalition of Democratic groups led by activists and organizers. The new additions, Emmy Ruiz and Adam Parkhomenko, held central roles on Clinton’s campaign: Ruiz delivered key victories as state director in Nevada during the primary and in Colorado during the general election; Parkhomenko worked in headquarters as her director of grassroots engagement before moving to the Democratic National Committee. Both served on Clinton’s first presidential bid in...

    Hillary Clinton is not only out of the woods — she’s ready to resist. After taking a few months off the national stage following her loss in the 2016 presidential election, Clinton says she’s ready to get back into the nitty gritty of politics — and join #resistance. Clinton is planning to launch a political group to raise money for progressive-minded groups and organizations, a Democratic source confirms to PEOPLE. The group will be called Onward Together—a nod to her presidential campaign’s slogan, Stronger Together— and will work with those trying to push back on President Donald Trump‘s agenda. Over...

January 24, 2018 Daniel Greenfield Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is an investigative journalist and writer focusing on the radical left and Islamic terrorism. A week after the election, groups inside and outside the government, some calling themselves Obama Anonymous, had begun meeting to plan the “resistance” to Trump. Unlike the angry protesters in the streets, this resistance wasn’t a new organization. It consisted of Washington D.C. government lifers. At the CFPB, there was a group calling itself Dumbledore’s Army. Within the FBI...
  • Schumer listened to the resistance — and lost badly

    Chuck Schumer started a government shutdown he couldn’t finish. The New York Democrat, among the shrewdest operators in national politics, stumbled badly because he succumbed to the siren song of the anti-Trump Resistance. He believed any charge could be made to stick to President Trump, no matter how implausible, and chose the dictates of an inflamed Democratic base over common sense. His embarrassing climbdown after a short, mostly weekend shutdown shows the limits of the Resistance. Yes, an anti-Trump midterm wave appears to be building and Democratic activists — marching in the streets by the thousands and badgering Republicans at...
