  • Democrat Rep. Val Hoyle Brags About Lecturing ‘Conservative Areas of My District’ on Merits of Biden’s Open Border

    Rep. Val Hoyle (D-OR) said she lectures the “conservative areas of my district” on the necessity of Biden’s open border because illegal immigrants must be imported to do menial labor. “Every one of my farmers knows that the people that are doing backbreaking work in heat, in brutal weather, to put food on our table, they want immigration reform,” Hoyle said in recently unearthed comments during a February press conference. “Our chambers of commerce, they want immigration reform.” The benign term “immigration reform” is commonly used by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and advocates of increased immigration, importation of cheap...

    A newly transplanted liberal in Florida described being triggered by patriotism as she tried to make new friends. The young woman in the video with thousands of views described the difficulty she has had in making new friends since moving to St. Petersburg, a city on Florida’s Gulf Coast. While she admits she loves the weather and St. Pete is “beautiful,” the woman soon shares her dilemma. “However, it has been hard to make friends which is natural as an adult,” she said. “It’s really difficult. I work from home, I live alone.” She explained how she downloaded the Meetup...
  • Daily Wire CEO Blasts Candace Owens Over ‘Christ Is King’ Refrain: ‘You Are a Blasphemer and an Antisemite and a Piece of Crap’

    Jeremy Boreing, the CEO of The Daily Wire who announced Candace Owens’s departure from the outlet last Friday, blasted his former employee for using the phrase “Christ is King” to justify her descent into overt anti-Semitism over the last few months. The refrain first gained attention last fall when Owens used it amidst a row with her then-colleague Ben Shapiro. She has since fallen back on it a number of times in order to justify her advancement of various anti-Semitic conspiracy theories.

    Laurel Leader Call ^ | 3/18/2024 | Crhris McDaniel ( MS State Senator)
    Somewhere along the way, we forgot our reason for being, the Republic’s raison d’etre. And it’s the authoritarians from both parties who are leading the charge to disaster, those ego-obsessed busybodies who keep increasing the strength and size of government to empower themselves at the expense of the people. America’s purpose is not simply the grandeur of our flag, the beauty of our Capitols, breathtaking landscapes, the solemnity of our monuments, or even the might of our armed forces that define us, though these are all aspects of our national identity. There’s so much more at stake.

    We have way too many McClellans “If you think you’re going to vote your way out of this you’re wrong.” “They’ll just steal it again.” Folks, I’m about to blow a gasket with these types. Many of these people think they are—-or portray themselves as—-MAGA or “conservatives.” There is nothing whatsoever conservative or MAGA about this worldview. Quite the contrary, if I was a DemoKKKrat I would energetically promote this kind of thinking to suppress MAGA and conservative turnout. It is simply a wrong worldview in several ways. First, it is counter-Biblical. The Bible instructs both Jews and Christians to...

"Under the direction of UF Human Resources, university employees whose positions were eliminated will receive UF’s standard twelve weeks of pay.

    “Can we keep our sons from conservative politics?” That’s the question writer Kathryn Jezer-Morton posed in a recent column for New York Magazine’s The Cut. “In her son’s case, I wouldn’t bet on it,” New York Times columnist Ross Douthat shot back on X. He’s right. Jezer-Morton is facing an age-old conundrum of parenthood: Kids rebel against their parents’ politics. Except, in 2024, the classic trend is being inverted.

    San Francisco residents appear to have finally had enough of what they voted for and are now open to embracing some conservative ideas, according to a poll. San Francisco Chamber of Commerce’s annual CityBeat poll was conducted by EMC Research and surveyed 500 likely voters between January 17-21, 2024. The margin of error is ± 4.4 percent, but these numbers are so overwhelmingly one-sided that the margin of error is meaningless.
  • Progressives are trying to pester liberal Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor, 69, into RETIRING over fears she could die on the job like Ruth Bader-Ginsburg while conservative president is in office

    Liberal Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor is under pressure from fellow liberals to retire amid growing fears she might enable a Republican president to appoint a conservative successor. CNN commentator Josh Barrow became the latest to demand the 69-year-old step down lest she follow in the footsteps liberal Ruth Bader Ginsburg who died while serving at 87 in 2020. That death allowed then-president Donald Trump to cement the court's conservative majority with the appointment of Amy Coney Barrett, and some liberals are determined it will not happen again. 'I'm not saying I think Justice Sotomayor is on death's door,' Barrow...

    The three letter agencies of America have decided that so-called “far-right terrorism” is a much bigger problem than any other terrorist threats outside of American soil, with the Department of Defense holding staff event meeting event to discuss the issue. For context, the Defense Department defines terrorism as the “unlawful use of violence or threat of violence to instill fear and coerce governments and societies.” So, instead of worrying about the millions of unchecked illegal immigrants pouring across the Southern border, the U.S. government has focused on what they term “homegrown” terrorism. In other words, any American who supports ‘Making...

    House Speaker Mike Johnson, R-La., is coming out in support of a bipartisan tax deal scheduled for a vote later on Wednesday. "The Tax Relief for American Families and Workers Act is important bipartisan legislation to revive conservative pro-growth tax reform," Johnson said in a statement. "Crucially, the bill also ends a wasteful COVID-era program, saving taxpayers tens of billions of dollars." "Chairman Smith deserves great credit for bringing this bipartisan bill through committee with a strong vote of confidence, and for marking up related bills under regular order earlier in this Congress. This bottom-up process is a good example...

    Story from late 2022. Parents are requesting Glenbard School District 87 remove obscene books from the school districts libraries. One parent Cedra Censhaw, a one-time State Senate candidate, tore into school board embers for supporting the inclusion of graphic sexual novels in the district’s libraries. Upon seeing a presentation board filled with graphic sexual imagery from the books at question Crenshaw had created to accompany her comments school board members tried to dissuade her from speaking. “I haven’t even started yet,” Crenshaw said to the board. Two board members chimed in. “No, no, no. I just. If this is about...

    Texas Tribune ^ | 01/12/2024 | Matthew Choi
    For many of his fellow House Republicans, Chip Roy is so conservative that he demands a level of ideological purity from his colleagues that routinely threatens to stall his party’s agenda — like this week when he toyed with ousting House Speaker Mike Johnson over a government funding deal. At the same time, the Austin congressman is being attacked by the MAGA world, cast as a RINO, or Republican in Name Only, for his outspoken criticism of former President Donald Trump and refusal to accept his false claims of a stolen election. *** Roy once again found himself at the...

    [Catholic Caucus] When “Inclusive Accompaniment” Means Police BrutalityProbably everyone reading this knows by now that Pope Francis has been very tough on Bishop Joseph Strickland of Tyler, Texas, removing him from his see without due canonical process. The main reason, it seems, is that Strickland has outspokenly criticized the constant stream of doctrinal and disciplinary novelties that have marked the present pontificate. And if you read on, you’ll see here that this intolerant crackdown is now extending even to the bishop’s supporters.Is there a touch of paranoia here? The incident described below I think reveals the depth of the enmity...

    I have noted several times in the past few years that the nature of our relationship with government seems to have shifted. Specifically, We The People now appear to be in an abusive relationship with government. In all abusive relationships there is a common set of behaviors; the DC control system is following a familiar pattern. My recent research trips helped me to understand exactly how severe and deep this shift has become.Certain abusers distort reality in the mind of their victims through gaslighting. Essentially manipulative and strategic lying, to make the abused think something, perhaps even their reality, is...

    Former Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), who headed the Republican House majority during former President Trump’s first two years in office, says that Trump is not conservative but instead an authoritarian narcissist whose guiding principle is to aggrandize himself. Ryan defended former Republican Reps. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) and Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.) for standing up to Trump and said many Republican lawmakers probably now regret not voting for impeachment charges and missing their chance to remove him from the political stage.

    Two Vatican insiders say Pope Francis has decided to punish conservative American Cardinal Raymond Burke for being a source of "disunity" within the church, marking the second such action against the dignitary. During a meeting last week with the heads of Vatican offices, Francis said he was taking action against Burke because of his disunity, one of the Nov. 20 meeting participants told the Associated Press. The participant spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not in a position to reveal the details of the meeting.
