    Beverly LaHaye, the prominent conservative Christian activist and author who founded the advocacy organization Concerned Women for America, has died at the age of 94. LaHaye had died on Sunday, Concerned Women for America announced. She leaves behind three children (a fourth child had died in 2017), nine grandchildren and 20 great-grandchildren. "Beverly LaHaye was not born into privilege nor blessed with extraordinary skills and abilities. Her life is a beautiful demonstration of what God can do with a person who is fully devoted to Him," stated CWA. "She was a faithful follower of Jesus Christ all the days of...
  • Dear Idaho, you aren't conservative.

    Dear Idaho, You are not a conservative state. I know you think you are. After all, more than 80% of your lawmakers call themselves Republican. The Republican Party controls the House, the Senate, and the Governor’s office. But let’s be honest. Idaho just isn’t conservative. Many Republican lawmakers vote like Democrats. Even those who campaign as “conservatives” vote liberal more than half the time. Here are some examples: HJM11—To hold President Biden and the federal government accountable for the invasion at our southern border. (Failed on the House floor.) Conservative states stand up for the rule of law rather than...

    A journalist who covers faith and religion is describing how she stumbled into a eye-opening story: Some big names among Trump-hating evangelicals used left-wing sources to fund their Bible study intended to put the Church to sleep. Megan Basham, a Daily Wire reporter, recently had her curiosity piqued when reading a new Tim Alberta book about religion. Flipping through the pages, she discovered a Bible study entitled “The After Party – toward better Christian politics,” which is praised in the evangelical-bashing book. That forthcoming Bible study was created by New York Times columnist David French, Russell Moore of Christianity Today,...

    Aleksei Navalny has reportedly died in prison, and the timing of this tragic event for the sake of proving the moral and intellectual bankruptcy of the anti-American right on the Russia question is absolutely perfect, coming on the heels of a series of humiliating videos of Tucker going to Moscow and declaring it heaven on earth. It’s one thing to just be wrong in normal and understandable ways. It’s completely different to go abroad and declare, “This poor country has food that is affordable in American dollars! They’ve developed technology to stop the shopping carts from rolling away!” Quotes don’t...
  • ‘The Economist’ Panics Over ‘Growing Peril’ of National Conservatism

    Breitbart ^ | 02/16/2024 | THOMAS D. WILLIAMS, PH.D.
    The Economist magazine warns this week of the “growing peril” of a national conservatism that is spreading like wildfire around the planet. National conservatism is “dangerous and it’s spreading,” The Economist intones forebodingly in this week’s cover story. “Liberals need to find a way to stop it.” The cover features a red MAGA cap stretched vertically to fit a slew of nations following the lead of American populism: “Make America, Hungary, Italy, France, Israel, Germany, the Netherlands, Poland great again.” Image Today, Donald Trump, Viktor Orban, and “a motley crew of Western politicians” have constructed “a statist, ‘anti-woke’ conservatism that...

    Ever since PJ's own managing editor, Paula Bolyard, gave ur-blogger Matt Drudge a virtual black eye, I've made it a point to visit the Drudge Report once or twice a week, just to keep an eye on lefty cray-cray over there. Today was one of those Drudge days and — as happens almost without fail — I found a cringeworthy instance of the site's increasingly laughable lefty bias.Before I get to that, here's a quick history of the Drudge Report as a news junky's go-to site. Since the invention of tabbed browsing almost 20 years ago, I must have spent...

    Real Clear Wire ^ | January 2, 2024 | Michael E. Hartmann
    Steve Miller’s December 12 RealClearInvestigations article, “How Tax-Exempt Nonprofits Skirt U.S. Law to Turn Out the Democrat Base in Elections,” is both jarring and informative and helps frame many important questions facing philanthropy, conservatism, and conservative philanthropy. Miller describes the general size and scope of activities being conducted a progressive nonprofit infrastructure that has “taken on an outsized part of the Democratic Party’s election strategy” and, specifically, how they “work around legal restrictions on nonprofits that accept tax-deductible donations by selectively engaging in nonpartisan efforts including boosting voter education and participation.” The infrastructure also includes nonprofit grantmaking institutions, which are...

    When Mitt Romney announced his intended retirement from the U.S. Senate on Sept. 13, 2023, the Atlantic published an excerpt from his upcoming biography, in which the 2012 Republican presidential nominee told author McKay Coppins, “A very large portion of my party really doesn’t believe in the Constitution.” This claim would have been startling 15 years ago. For decades, the Republican Party has been the party of conservatism and a champion for the Constitution. Romney is clear that Donald Trump, who leads what he calls a “populist” and “demagogic” portion of the party, is to blame. And Romney is not...

    Former President Donald Trump is facing a backlash after calling one of the most conservative members of Congress a RINO who should be primaried—one week after the filing deadline. Trump blasted Rep. Chip Roy (R-Texas), a member of the conservative House Freedom Caucus, on Truth Social after the congressman endorsed Trump’s rival, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, for president. “Has any smart and energetic Republican in the Great State of Texas decided to run in the Primary against RINO Congressman Chip Roy,” Trump wrote. “For the right person, he is very beatable. If interested, let me know!!!” Trump’s comments appeared to...

    Former Fox News host Tucker Carlson agreed wholeheartedly with the assertion that National Review founding editor William F. Buckley Jr. was “one of the great villains of the 20th century” during a Wednesday interview with Dave Smith, a comedian and libertarian YouTube host. Smith launched the initial attack on Buckley, declaring “I’ll tell you this: Whatever this atrophy in like the intelligence of the American people, it’s, I think it’s accelerating. I mean it’s-. Look, and again, just like you said I’ll disclaimer as well: I’m talking about people who I don’t necessarily like. Like I view Bill Buckley as...

    -- 'Far right' now includes feminists, Brexiters, elected representatives and nihilistic mobs -- Elites use playground insults to express disapproval and shut down further discussion -- Being angry about violence against children does not make someone 'far right' Last Thursday, Dublin city centre resembled a war zone. Violent mobs rioted for over three hours in what’s been described as ‘the worst disorder experienced for decades’. Vehicles, including police cars, were set on fire, and three buses and a tram were destroyed. The ‘huge destruction’ left shops badly damaged and windows broken. Looting followed. The violence is believed to have been...

    Vivek Ramaswamy has a favorite term for his enemies on foreign policy: "neocon," short for neoconservative.“I want to be careful to avoid making the mistakes from the neocon establishment of the past,” he told moderator Lester Holt during the third Republican presidential debate on Nov. 8 in Miami.“Corrupt politicians in both parties spent trillions, killed millions, made billions for themselves in places like Iraq and Afghanistan fighting wars that sent thousands of our sons and daughters, people my age, to die in wars,” the millennial businessman continued, rattling off criticisms of pre-Trump foreign policy.“Do you want Dick Cheney in three-inch...

    The Federalist ^ | 11/15/2023 | Brian Hawkins
    Our cultural decadence and institutional rot can only be remedied by a movement unafraid to assert virtue throughout society.One item stood out at last week’s Republican presidential primary debate: There was not an explicitly nor implicitly identified libertarian candidate. Ron Paul represented the libertarian faction in Republican debates in 2008 and 2012, and his son Rand Paul assumed the mantle in 2016. Prior libertarian-leaning Republican primary candidates include Barry Goldwater in 1964, Jack Kemp in 1988, and Steve Forbes in 1996 and 2000, yet no such candidate can claim the position in this year’s Republican primary. The lack of a...

    Many leading Republicans and conservatives want someone other than Donald Trump to run for President in 2024. But this judgment requires an assessment of Trump’s vices and virtues in the context of our current political and cultural circumstances, as well as an assessment of other prospective Republican presidential candidates. Tom Klingenstein, Chairman of the Claremont Institute, explains Trump's Virtues.

    Republicans are in mourning: Matt Gaetz, the irresponsible renegade with the pointed chin, has ousted Kevin McCarthy, and America is racing to Armageddon. There’s a possibility the Republicans are right. After all, Democrats helped push McCarthy out, which can mean only nefarious things. However, there’s also a chance that they’re very, very wrong and that this is the kick in the pants Republicans need to understand that they had better start choosing America over “collegiality,” which means globalism. To appreciate what I’m going to write, you must know where I’m coming from: I am a registered Republican because we have...

    A recent study conducted at the University of Arkansas finds that men with heightened physical strength are perceived as more conservative by others. The study found that men who seem fit and healthy and have some bulk are considered right-wing, while thin or svelte and weak-looking men were not assumed to lean right. The results came from a series of four experiments that sought to establish a link between political orientation and a fit physique, according to the Daily Mail. Viewers were presented with photos of male bodies with faces covered and asked to rank which ideology they thought the...

    James L. Buckley, a “conservative beacon” who won a shock election victory to represent New York in the US Senate in 1970, has died. He was 100. Buckley’s death in a Washington, DC, hospital was the result of complications from a fall, his nephew, author and political satirist Christopher Buckley, told the New York Times Friday.
