  • Why Does the Left No Longer Hates Big Business

    A post at the Daily Wire asks the question, “Remember When The Left Hated Big Business?” Of course the left loves big business now. They haven’t changed their minds about capitalism. The Democratic Party is now openly and explicitly socialist. It’s even going full Communist, with growing calls to abolish the Second Amendment and to ignore the First Amendment, and with laws against “hate speech”. It’s not that they’ve changed their minds. But the left now controls most of big business. Facebook, Twitter, Apple and Google are hard left companies. They want socialism and even Communism for the rest of...
  • Why the “Good Guy with a Gun” Argument Doesn’t Work With Leftists

    As we are enjoying our Thanksgiving leftovers, some of us are thinking about the next set of issues over which the Left will spontaneously combust. Funny how it’s often timed perfectly for the next political fight and they are relatively quiet until people start paying attention after the New Year. When Democrats gain control of the house in January, they will be fighting harder than ever to convince us that law-abiding citizens shouldn’t be trusted to have guns to defend themselves. Not long ago, they balked bitterly at the accusation that their real goal was to repeal the Second Amendment....

    Over the past decade, attackers motivated by right-wing political ideologies have committed dozens of shootings, bombings and other acts of violence, far more than any other category of domestic extremist, according to a Washington Post analysis of data on global terrorism.

    Donald Trump saved us from Hillary Clinton and the Leftist cabal in 2016. But they have a lot in store for us still. Like so many past victories won by the GOP and its supporters, a won battle is believed to be a won war. It’s not. I saw the same thing happen in 1980 when Ronald Reagan wiped out the Democrats and again in 1984. It was an electoral landslide like no other. Let’s also remember that Reagan was Governor of California and California voted for him in 1980 and 1984. Look at California today. If it’s one thing...

    Do you understand that your misery is job security for D.C. Democrats? We used to teach our kids the value of sportsmanship. We’d tell them something like “everyone loses. What matters is that you tried your best and you learned something from the loss. You can come back and get ‘em next time.” No one liked sore losers. Good sportsmanship was somewhat of a cultural virtue. Our parents taught us to be gracious in victory and defeat. Apparently, some of our Democratic “leaders” were never taught this lesson growing up. After the smoke had cleared and Election Day had come...

    o one understands the dysfunctions and debilitating impact of America's political system in the swamp better than Mark Melcher and Steve Soukup. For decades between them, they followed Washington for Wall Street at one of America's largest brokerage houses. For the last 16 years, the two have run their own, independent research shop, delivering political commentary and forecasting to the investment community, studying the intersection between politics and economics. This pushed them into a relentless pursuit of the new left -- measuring its deleterious impact on everything it touches -- most especially Western civilization. To this end, Melcher and Soukup...

    The pattern is as predictable as it is obvious. When the left (especially the far left) talks about freedom, it means freedom for those who conform. When it talks about diversity, it means my way or the highway. Political correctness is to be enforced. Dissent will not be tolerated. So much for the left bringing “liberation.”Of course, the left will say to us, “No, you are the ones who require conformity. You are the ones who refuse to recognize marriage when it’s different than what you’re used to. You are the ones who want to forbid a woman from having...

    Tim Allen thinks nothing is more effective at pissing people off than a "very funny conservative." "I like pissing people off, and I said there’s nothing, especially in this area, that pisses people off more than a very funny conservative, a smart, funny conservative that takes shots and is certainly self-effacing," Allen said in an interview with IndieWire about his show "Last Man Standing," in which he plays a conservative-leaning character. "The left-wing point of view is so pervasive that they don’t even realize it’s a point of view. It is just a point of view," he said. "I think...

    For some time now, I have wondered to myself what the leftists’ real goal is as they work to divide the nation, corrupt our youth, destroy our institutions and revel in their criminal behavior to steal elections. This week it hit me. The goal is simply to end the existence of the United States as we know it, as it was founded, and destroy the freedom, rule of law, capitalism that is represents. The Hi-Tech Traditionalist: The More ‘Diverse’ We Become, The Less Unified We Are It is not just to gain power and implement their “progressive” (read: communist) agenda;...

    Nearly three-quarters of the country believes that the media is “dividing Americans” along political, racial, and gender lines, a stunning condemnation of the press, according to a new national survey. What’s more, the Zogby Analytics poll provided to Secrets said that the media bias is sparking hate and misunderstanding. And while Americans also blame President Trump for dividing voters, the survey analysis said the media is worse. Those surveyed, said Zogby Analytics, “felt the mainstream media spreads hate and misunderstanding, also felt that President Trump is responsible for the spread of hate and misunderstanding, but more voters overall, and in...

    If you don’t like the Left, you can probably come up with many reasons you believe they don’t measure up in their intellectual capabilities, some of those may be questionable. Over the years, the reason I have found most egregious and irrefutable rests with my involvement with this publication. Recently, I was working on background for a panel discussion on California propositions prior to the election. I found the director of the Public Policy Institute of California's Water Policy Center. PPIC is clearly a left-of-center think tank. I was researching information for a proposition to commit another $8.89 BILLION in...

    The mob attack on Fox News host Tucker Carlson’s home this week by radical Marxists – leaving his home with a broken door and vandalized with leftist slogans – has triggered widespread shock on the part of most decent Americans. For those aware of the way “Antifa” elements operate internationally, however, the incident was nothing new. Pro-democracy and right-leaning political activists, journalists, and artists 90 miles from our shores, fighting for their rights in communist Cuba, have faced similar mob attacks on their homes for years. Unlike the Carlson incident, in Cuba, the government actively organizes the mobs. The riots...

    “America’s Got Talent” alum Benton Blount abruptly lost his opening-act gig on ZZ Top guitarist Billy Gibbons' concert tour after his pro-Trump Facebook post got him temporarily banned from the social media website. Blount was four shows into the seven-show slot when he learned he was kicked off the tour, South Carolina’s Greenville News reported. The post showed Blount wearing a red “Make America Great Again” hat and an “I Voted” sticker on Election Day while holding a Chick-Fil-A sandwich and drink. The photo carried the caption, "Someone reading this just got offended multiple times. My work here is done!...

    In a string of disturbing tweets Thursday afternoon, Vox Senior Correspondent and co-founder Matthew Yglesias actually justified a mob of left-wing Antifa activists surrounding the home of Fox News anchor Tucker Carlson and terrorizing his family. Even as other journalists and pundits across the political spectrum condemned the incident, Yglesisas insisted that he “cannot empathize” with Carlson or his family. In response to liberal Washington Post columnist Karen Tumulty denouncing the actions of the Antifa thugs via Twitter, Yglesias launched his offensive tweetstorm by proclaiming: “I think the idea behind terrorizing his family, like it or not as a strategy,...

    Over the weekend, California Representative Maxine Waters once again defended her public statements encouraging her supporters to harass and assault their political opponents in mobs. During a Saturday appearance on the “Roland Martin Unfiltered” web show, Waters insisted that such protests “make America better” because protestors are fighting for “justice and equality for everybody.” Rather than deny that she has been encouraging violent behavior against Republicans, Waters justified such tactics by claiming that the very nature of protests is to make their targets “feel uncomfortable”: “I told someone the other day who is trying to say that we are violent...

    "Life, Liberty & Levin" host Mark Levin joined Sean Hannity to deliver a passionate case against Democrats, the liberal media, celebrities and more, with less than a week to go before the crucial midterm elections. "We're actually fighting the media, we're fighting the Democrats, we're fighting academia, we're fighting Hollywood and all the rest," Levin said. He said people who support President Trump and an "America First" agenda are all too often accused of being racists, sexists or white supremacists, and "it's time to push back."
