    ELMA, N.Y. - The Jamison Volunteer Fire Hall is not caving to public criticism following the announcement that former White House advisor and former executive chairman at Breitbart News Steve Bannon will hold a "Get out the Vote" rally on Wednesday. Michael Caputo, who helped organize the rally, said that the previous event at the Roycroft Inn was canceled after threats of property violence and boycott. Channel 7 reported that the inn worried about brand damage as a result of hosting the Bannon rally. Our phone call to Roycroft has yet to be returned. The fire hall said that criticisms...

    In a world that the identity politics has wrought, lived experience is a trump (apologies for the use of a triggering word) card: your viewpoint or opinion on an issue is automatically deemed invalid or at least less valid and valuable if you’re not a member of a group whose plight is being discussed. Men can’t really know what it’s like to be women, white people can’t really know what it’s like to be people of colour, the straight ones can’t really know what it’s like to have other sexual orientations. Your identity is your argument; “You wouldn’t know what...

    Carolyn Eberly is an unlikely warrior. A former chemist from Waxhaw, N.C., she works at the local library, plays volleyball and wears her blond hair pulled back in a big clip. Her husband has always followed politics, but Eberly used to steer away from it in polite conversation. She voted, but not much else. Then came President Donald Trump’s election. “I felt sick to my stomach,” says Eberly, 51. She found herself at the Women’s March in Charlotte, then at rallies for immigrants, then staying up all night reading news articles posted in Facebook groups. She began to feel uncomfortable...

    It is President Donald Trump and not “resistance” leader, ex-president Obama who is Making America Great Again For eight long years the mainstream and social media, controlled by his Party, worked to portray Barack Hussein Obama as “the smartest guy in the room”. Obama, of course, was never the smartest guy but only the most devious ‘swiper in the room’. Obsessed with undermining America from lavish “resistance” headquarters within easy walking distance of the White House, Obama must have been tuned in to President Donald Trump’s midterm campaign rallies, the ones drawing millions of viewers, while he could only bring...

    A pair of protesters confronted Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) in an airport over his vote to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, USA Today reported Wednesday. "You think that putting a sexual assaulter on the court is a victory for women?" one of the women can be heard asking Cruz in a video posted to Twitter. Cruz responds, stating that he believes in due process. The women then press Cruz about his support for Kavanaugh and ask the senator whether he believed the judge committed perjury during his testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee late last month regarding allegations...

    The best way to Impeach Obama is to ignore him and for deplorables to take up the song, ‘This Is Our Battle, This Is Our Song.’ That was Barack Hussein Obama’s “Resistance” creating the unhinged ruckus on the steps of the Capitol and pitching hissy-fit screeches from the gallery as votes were called on the Brett Kavanaugh Supreme Court confirmation yesterday. It was a raucous scene forced on the masses whether wanted it or not.

    Rep. Mark Walker's (R-N.C.) office said this week that it reported Twitter messages from a supporter of his Democratic opponent to Capitol Police to investigate. Staff for Walker, the chairman of the powerful Republican Study Committee, said they asked for Capitol Police to investigate after the North Carolina Republican’s campaign received continuous threatening messages from a supporter of his Democratic opponent. The person behind the tweets – which included the "bomb" emoji and an attempt to track down information about the congressman’s daughter’s school and whether it was public or private – was identified as Andrew Cabaccang, a Montana-based man...

    By all indications, Brett Kavanaugh is about to be confirmed to the Supreme Court.... His confirmation ... will plunge the Supreme Court into a legitimacy crisis that could weaken its power over the long term. This crisis will become particularly acute if Democrats retake Congress and the presidency but find their reforms stymied by a reactionary judiciary. The broad consensus over the court’s authority to interpret the Constitution will crumble. (...) (...) But what happens when Democrats take back the legislative and executive branches? What if Democrats pass Medicare for All, and the Supreme Court strikes it down, with Kavanaugh...

    Full title: This Sentence From Grassley's Latest Letter to Ford's Attorneys Suggests Huge Discovery About Contact With Dems In a letter to Dr. Christine Blasey Ford’s legal team, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley asked for records and descriptions of any communications with senators or their staffs. But he didn’t stop there. Grassley specifically named Sens. Dianne Feinstein and Mazie Hirono “in light of recently uncovered information.” "I urge you once again, now for the third time in writing, to turn over the therapy notes, polygraph materials, and communications with The Washington Post that Dr. Ford has relied upon as...

    Seeking to boost Republican turnout in key Minnesota battlegrounds, President Donald Trump attacked Democrats Thursday night, arguing that their “rage-fueled resistance” to his Supreme Court nominee will motivate GOP voters this fall. Speaking before a cheering crowd at a rally in Rochester, Trump praised Judge Brett Kavanaugh, whose nomination has faltered amid accusations of sexual misconduct. Of Democrats, he said, “Their rage-fueled resistance is starting to backfire at a level nobody has ever seen before.” Added Trump: “Do we love it? We love it. Because people see what’s happening and they don’t like it.” […] In a sustained attack on...

    For this week's Big Ideas with Ben Weingarten podcast, my guest was Rich Higgins. Higgins, an expert in unconventional warfare and combatting terrorism with over 20 years experience at senior levels of the Defense Department, and early supporter of President Trump, served as director for strategic planning in President Trump's National Security Council (NSC). That all changed when a memo that he produced for President Trump warning of the political warfare he was to face internally from the Deep State, and externally from the media and like-minded interest groups in collusion with the administrative state, leaked out to the public....

    Sunday, Republicans in Winnebago County woke up to angry messages sprawled on their headquarters' building referring to the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh for the Supreme Court. The date of the DC contentious Judicial Committee hearing "9/27/18" was spray painted on a wall, along with words "Rape" and "Shame" multiple times. State Rep. John Cabello (R-Loves Park) - a Rockford police detective when not serving his constituents - posted photos of the vandalism on his Facebook page with these words: "We can have out differences. We can have good-spirited debate. I hope whoever is responsible for this will be brought...

    In the early decades of the 21st century the New Left Progressives have taken protest to a new level. Of course it wasn’t that long ago that Dear Leader considered such behavior to be treasonous:But I guess that only applies to those of us who fall “on the wrong side of history” in his ledger. In order to get on the right side of history we apparently must agree to their newspeak,Tyranny is the new emancipation!and agree to do things the way the Democrats demand…or suffer the consequences of their tantrums.Because RESISTANCE! is righteous anger turned against an unjust system,...

    RUSH: As to the political nature of this, we mentioned the name Brian Fallon to you a couple of times in the past two days. Brian Fallon was a spokesman for Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign, her failed presidential campaign. Brian Fallon is an angry, vindictive, bitter, and very sore loser. He posted what many people say look like veiled threats to Kavanaugh last night. He called Kavanaugh an “attempted rapist” and vowed that Judge Kavanaugh, if confirmed, “will not serve for life.” Currently, Brian Fallon is the executive director of something called We Demand Justice. It is a front group...

    Communist agitators took to Twitter this week to brainstorm strategies for a violent armed insurrection against their perceived enemies. “Dr. Bones," the co-host of the far-left podcast The Guillotine, started the conversation going with his 5,000-plus Twitter followers. Bones (@Ole_Bonsey on Twitter) asked: “Hey quick little question for military minded lefties: should leftists train/organize in a 'insurgent' focus where they blend into a civilian population for potential attacks or a more 'militia' structure focused on holding/maintaining turf?” Bones went on to suggest that fellow travelers organize "hidden cells" and focus on ambushes and assassinations to bleed "right-leaning forces" dry.

    Debra Katz, one of the attorneys representing Brett Kavanaugh’s accuser, attended a resistance rally against the president in 2017 and promised to “fight back.” (video) Katz is representing Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, who claims Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her in the 1980s while the two were in high school. The lawyer has numerous ties to the resistance against Trump, and was caught on camera at a protest in February 2017 after Jeff Sessions was confirmed as the administration’s attorney general. “We are going to fight back,” she told a reporter. “We are going to resist. We will...
