    Its days like today when I think America is hanging by a thread. And that thread is the courageous and good man Donald Trump. I knew the media would deliberately lie about Charlottesville, but I didn't think the liberal republicans would too. Clearly I overestimated them. These cowardly republicans still have never learned. Their fate is tied to trump. They go against him and they can forget getting the vote of people like me ever again. (Sigh) maybe in America 2.0 we will insist on a media that isn’t a bunch of leftists lying filth. Until then, stock up for...
  • Flashback: Here is what Martin Luther King told a teen struggling with his sexuality

    08/16/2017 6:33:20 AM PDT · by TigerClaws · 15 replies
    Civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. once answered a question from a boy who was struggling to cope with his sexuality. The rights hero openly discussed homosexuality while writing an advice column for Ebony Magazine in 1958 – while the government was still openly discriminating against LGBT people. According to a transcript released by Stanford University, the boy asked: “My problem is different from the ones most people have. “I am a boy, but I feel about boys the way I ought to feel about girls. I don’t want my parents to know about me. What can I do?...

    Trump refused to give in to the false narrative of this weekend's events being promoted by fake news mainstream media. The leftist media and its parrot politicians from both parties have aligned themselves with the communist hammer and sickle-wearing violent extremist group ANTIFA. President Trump has now exposed the violent ALT-LEFT for what it is: anti-American violent thugs seeking to use racial issues and rare instances of police violence to undermine unity in our country. True, there were those on both sides of the statute debate who were present ready and willing to engage in violence. Trump acknowledged this fact....

    The events in Charlotte could have been used to point out that the Extreme left-- Black Lives Matter, Black Bloc, and Antifa are just as bad as the KKK and Neonazis et al. And even more violent. At least according to recent history (Riots at Berkeley, Ferguson and elsewhere, cop assassinations etc) And the events in Charlotte could have been used to point out that the media who says trump hasn't done enough to condemn extremism, never calls on democrats to denounce left wing extremist groups. Did any democrat ever condemn BLM's rioting? Did any of them condemn The riots...

    1. Leftist/media claim--Trump hasn't condemned racist and violent groups enough. *BUZZ* false He has several times. Contrast that to the democrats. Did Obama EVER condemn black lives matter and their murder of 15 cops, and weeks of rioting and looting? No he never did. has any Democrat condemned the leftists rioting at Berkeley or James Hodgkinson, the murderer who shot Steve Scalise? No, never. fact finder results. Trump has condemned violent racist groups several times. Leftist leaders have not condemned leftist violent hate groups even once. 2.Leftist/media inferred claim-- Only the right is violent, extreme and hateful. *BUZZ* false The...

    Intellectual Conservative ^ | August 14, 2017 | Rachel Alexander
    The left has figured out several methods that successfully work to divide the left and the right. One of their cleverest ways is stirring up race wars, because it has the extra benefit of making the right look bad. The playbook goes like this: Spread the word nonstop that Democrats help minorities and Republicans are racist (never mind that it was mostly Democrats in Congress who opposed ending segregation —  people don’t pay close attention to history). Once this false mantra has been established, label a broad range of normal behavior by conservatives as racist (it doesn’t matter if some...

    I was shocked reading a number of posts today about the incident in Virginia, specifically about the car crash incident. It seems to some that that car crash was the entire sum of the protest. Naturally it is now being used as a weapon against Conservatism, so it is necessary to begin to think clearly about what actually occurred and what we shouldn't be agreeing with the media on. The Federales are even launching a "Civil Rights" investigation over what the media is calling an act of "terrorism": http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/bloggers/3576716/posts?page=18#18 When you have the Feds coming in to investigate whether civil...

    wonder whether this procedure has been considered? We know from The Pentagon Papers case that the US Sup Ct held that a "prior restraint" on the media publishing government papers was illegal under the Constitution. Let us consider the act of "publishing" to be a recognized act. We know that the taking of classified information without approval or beyond the permissible actions is a crime, perhaps under the Espionage Act of 1917, which, I understand, is poorly drafted. We know that one who commits a definable crime can be prosecuted. We further know that one who aids and abets the...

    What Small Thing Can I Do To Meaningfully Help My President? I feel like I must do something to help President Trump and through him our country but feel so powerless to make a meaningful difference. I’ve reached out to opposition-minded friends and family but have had only limited success penetrating the insidious web of distortions woven by the media and the likes of Facebook and Google. I’ve written my Republican congressmen on numerous occasions only to receive boilerplate platitudes in response; I fear (but do not know) that they may be either self-serving cowards and/or as corrupt and seditious...
