  • Why the Left Has To Suppress Free Speech

    01/19/2021 5:12:52 AM PST · by Kaslin · 23 replies ^ | January 19, 2021 | Dennis Prager
    Let us begin with this fact: The left always suppresses speech. Since Vladimir Lenin and the Bolshevik Revolution in Russia in 1917, there has been no example of the left in control and not crushing dissent. That is one of the important differences between liberal and left: Liberalism and liberals believe in free speech. (The present leftist threat to freedom in America, the greatest threat to freedom in American history, is made possible because liberals think they have more to fear from conservatives than from the left. Liberals do not understand that the left regards liberals as their useful idiots.)...
  • Conservatives' Dunkirk Moment

    American Thinker ^ | January 17, 2021 | Gary Gindler
    Paraphrasing Winston Churchill, the presidential election of 2020 was a colossal political disaster, a catastrophe on the level of Dunkirk. However, the Dunkirk 1940 fiasco quickly turned out to be a Dunkirk miracle. Do conservatives, whose "root and core and brain" are currently in disarray, have a chance of performing a similar marvel? When the Dunkirk saga concluded, Prime Minister Churchill had occupied 10 Downing Street for a little less than four weeks. When the fiendishly clever (and practically undetectable for the untrained eye) 2020 election steal happened, President Trump was occupying 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue for a little less than...
  • Fox News’ Downfall Is Good For The Conservative Movement: It's Time to Separate the Wheat from the Chaff

    What’s going on with Fox News?It seems that the company is going through quite a storm after it alienated much of its audience with its handling of the presidential election. It’s not looking so good for the network that, for decades, represented conservative thought on broadcast media.The company recently restructured its daytime lineup amid plummeting ratings. The network is currently struggling to regain the audience it lost in 2020. Even worse, it is currently performing worse than CNN and MSNBC, which are left-leaning media activist organizations. It seems that only shows hosted by Tucker Carlson and Sean Hannity are keeping...
  • Politico Staff in Revolt Over Conservative Ben Shapiro Being Allowed to Write for the Site

    PJ Media ^ | 01/16/2021 | Rick Moran
    The suppression of any and all things conservative took an ugly turn yesterday when Politico staffers recoiled at the invitation to conservative writer Ben Shapiro to join the staff for the online publication’s popular “Playbook” section on Thursday. One staffer said in a Politico company-wide Slack channel that Shapiro has a “long history of bigoted and incendiary commentary.” This is a baseless, false allegation. Shapiro may be a partisan, but he’s hardly a bomb-thrower. Shapiro wrote in his “Playbook” posting, “Republicans believe that Democrats and the overwhelmingly liberal media see impeachment as an attempt to cudgel them collectively by lumping...

    Kane at Citizen Free Press wrote, "Ann Coulter is dead to me…" She has been in my graveyard since the third time she said she would never support President Donald John Trump again.She fooled us. So have many others over the years. Conservatives keep falling in love and keep being played.Consider this story from the Associated Press, "Arnold Schwarzenegger calls President Donald Trump 'worst president ever'."Remember when he was governor of California?We loved it when he called Democrats girly men. We thought we had our champion. Too bad he was born in Austria and cannot run for president, we thought...
  • The right needs to remember that this is bigger than Trump: A fractious conservative movement needs to remember that what’s happening now isn’t all about the President

    American Thinker ^ | 01/11/2021 | Matt Rowe
    Too many people are conflating “Trumpers” with the entire right or with conservatives and even with Republicans as if they were all the same thing. It’s one thing when the Left does this, but we need to be clear that the “right” is a mixture of groups with similar beliefs, but with distinct differences that must be understood. What matters is that we on the right all face a herculean struggle between capitalism and socialism, and between strict construction of the Constitution and judicial activism, and a host of other threats to the Republic. In the lead-up to the 2016...

    If we fight back using the same tactics as the leftists or support martial law, then we ultimately erase the civil liberties protected within the Bill of Rights. Those rights will NEVER return (don’t believe the promises for a second) and we become history’s biggest hypocrites and a cautionary tale of the “dangers of nationalism” told to children generations from now, much like the Nazis. There is, however, another option, and it’s not diplomacy. The establishment likes to make people think there are only ever two choices during any crisis, and both choices involve giving up more freedom or giving...
  • Yes, I am open to taking requests for free open source audiobook production

    As Facebook and Twitter and other big tech firms continue to cement their positions on the side of progressivism, Google, Microsoft, Apple and many other companies, I just wanted to point out to others who may see this that I think that free open source audiobooks now more than ever offer a great way for any conservative to express themselves. In particular, its a way to create something high profile that can't possibly be silenced by big tech. This is in fact censorship proof. I'll tell you right now, The Founding Fathers do speak for me. John Jay, James Madison,...

  • With Friends Like These, Who Needs Enemies?

    We conservatives have long known that most Republican politicians are cowards. On issue after issue, they back down or bend the knee to Democrats and unappointed bureaucrats. They deserted Trump when the going got tough on issue after issue; whenever they saw resistance to his ideas, they backed down or deserted him, even if his ideas and suggested programs might have been good for the country. Why aren’t the tax cuts permanent? Why isn’t voter fraud being investigated? Why isn’t there a special prosecutor for Hunter Biden? Why are troops still in Afghanistan and Syria? Why won’t they stand for...

    The Federalist ^ | 12/23/2020 | Mark Hemingway
    Well, they say hindsight is 2020 — and thank God for that. Suffice to say, none of us are going to be wistfully blaring Ol’ Blue Eyes’ “It Was a Very Good Year” on New Year’s Eve. (Side note: Have you ever listened to the lyrics of that song? “It was a very good year / for blue-blooded girls of independent means.” Is Frank Sinatra being feminist or classist? I’m so confused.)Anyway, if we’re going to go digging for some roast beef in this year’s crap sandwich, most of us had a little more time to read this year. That...
  • The Right Should Be Relieved SCOTUS Rejected Judicial Activism In Texas v. Pennsylvania: Conservatives must rediscover their opposition to judicial overreach

    The Federalist ^ | 12/15/2020 | Adam Carrington, Hillsdale College
    The Warren Court holds a special place of derision within the conservative imagination. The term refers to the 1953-1969 timeframe when Chief Justice Earl Warren held sway over the U.S. Supreme Court. The right has understood this court as inaugurating and modeling the modern iteration of “judicial activism.”Conservative critics of the Warren Court period hold that, through a series of heavy-handed interventions, it undermined essential elements of American government, including the rule of law, popular sovereignty, and federalism. The right’s evolution toward working-class populism should only increase antipathy toward the Warren Court and its rule by elitist judicial fiat.This makes...

    Thank you to our readers! November was another record month at The Gateway Pundit with over 125 million page views. This is the 9th time this year we have broken all-time monthly traffic records. The Gateway Pundit climbed to number 104 in the Alexa rankings for top websites in the US. The Gateway Pundit is now listed above USA Today, Forbes, NBC News, NPR and the Wall Street Journal.What makes this more remarkable is that The Gateway Pundit is targeted continuously by the liberal media and far left tech giants. And The Gateway Pundit is smeared mercilessly by the demonic...
  • Bad News for Progressives: It's Still a Conservative Country

    12/01/2020 4:58:20 AM PST · by Kaslin · 67 replies ^ | December 1, 2020 | Stephen Moore
    It's not exactly clear how it happened. No one expected it, least of all the media and pollsters. But that promised big blue wave of Democratic victories across the country turned instead into a red tidal wave from coast to coast. Most progressive ballot issues in the states -- from tax increases to racial preferences -- also came crashing down. A big reason for this turnaround in the election was the massive turnout for President Donald Trump on Election Day. The irony is that Trump's coattails pulled hundreds of Republicans over the goal line -- but as things currently stand,...

    Tweetstapo’s Ministry Of Propaganda is at it again. This time, its operatives targeted a popular conservative movie detailing the Democratic Party’s effort to use false allegations of collusion to destroy President Donald Trump. The Washington Times reported that “Twitter blacklisted for a day an account for a popular conservative movie that tells the story of how the FBI, news media and Democrats tried to bring down President Trump on false Russia allegations.”On Thursday, Twitter suspended the account for “The Plot Against The President” and refused to give a reason for the suspension. After a fierce backlash, the social media company...

    See also: Sorry, Tucker, your outrage is too little, too lateIt’s no secret that I admire Tucker Carlson, an honest, brave, and extraordinarily insightful commentator whose Fox News program was, until recently, the most popular program on cable news. With Fox News’ news operation calling Arizona for Biden early on Election Night, and subsequently dogmatically labeling Biden “president-elect” and often dissing those who question the legitimacy of the election tabulations of the mainstream media and the media’s proclamation of the winner, conservatives are infuriated at the network and all its personnel.Dex Bahr today excoriates Tucker on these pages, but I...

    When the conservative philosopher Edmund Burke wrote REFLECTIONS ON THE FRENCH REVOLUTION he described, with horror, the total destruction of the ancient regime in France, and the replacement of this elegant civilized (if imperfect) Medieval Country with a barbaric, mad, chaotic Reign of Terror. If the Democrats prevail in this election, America will suffer a similar fate: Obamaism on steroids: floods of illegal immigrants; Drug Cartel money and destruction; human slave trafficking; return to Globalist Control with China, EU, and Iran. Total censorship by Big Tech, politicized and weaponized federal agencies and education. Use of medicinal lockdowns to control the...

    There's a major drama playing out over the course of time, and Rush Limbaugh symbolizes some of the bigger themes in it. Rush Limbaugh is battling Stage 4 cancer. As many of us know, this is a debilitating process during which the patient fights not only the cancer, but the effects of the treatments that kill the cancer — because those treatments are also toxic to the rest of the body. Rush Limbaugh has lived a particularly important life in modern America. Almost single-handedly, he carried the fight to the left over the airwaves, years before many even understood who...

    What would be the impact on Facebook and Twitter stock value if conservatives abandoned these sites en masse? I just got fed up today when Facebook deleted my second post as "violating community standards". It was an American Thinker article about Hunter Biden, and included the photo of him smoking a crack pipe. The previous one from just a couple of days ago was a meme about being old and not realizing the cause of most injuries is thinking that you can perform the same activities you did when you were younger!With all the censorship of late, I just decided...
