  • Salon: Conservatives Are New ‘Good Germans’ of Nazi Era, Seek ‘Friendly Fascism’

    A Salon essay published on Friday accuses Republicans of resembling “good Germans” of the Nazi era — wishing to believe they are decent people while hiding behind “fictions of plausible deniability for the evils committed by their leader” — and describes today’s conservatism as seeking “friendly fascism” masked in an appeal to return to “traditional values.” The essay, penned by staff writer Chauncey Devega and titled “Conservatives are the new ‘good Germans,’ enabling and defending Trump’s crimes,” begins by claiming “Whatever ‘conservative’ once meant in American politics, it’s now just a flimsy rhetorical shield for fascism.” Devega continues by declaring...

  • Amazon Pulls Bestseller on Transgender Issues From Store Without Explanation

    Amazon pulled a bestseller on transgender issues from its online store on Sunday without explanation. Author Ryan T. Anderson tweeted on Sunday that his book, When Harry Became Sally: Responding to the Transgender Moment, had been removed. At the time of writing, the book was not available on Amazon either in physical form, as an e-book, or as an audiobook, although Anderson’s four other books remain up. Amazon’s crackdown on conservative content mirrors a trend many on the right see in other major tech companies. Criticism of big tech has spiked since Facebook and Twitter removed President Donald Trump following...
  • Just Why Are Washington Post, NY Times Obituaries Nicer to Terrorists Than Conservatives?

    It’s amazing how nuanced obituaries can be for figures that liberal media types appreciate. The portrait is always complicated. But less so when it’s a conservative. Conservative radio star Rush Limbaugh passed away this week and The New York Times slammed him with an obit about “hate,” “mistrust” and grievances.” The online version featured a sub-headline sliming him as “pushing talk radio to the right with misogynistic and racist language and conspiracy theories.” When conservative Supreme Court icon Antonin Scalia died, here’s the dour, negative headline from the February 14, 2016 print Washington Post: As I wondered at the time,...
  • Conservative Coalition Launches Multimillion Dollar Ad Blitz to Expose Biden’s ‘Unity’ Farce

    A coalition of three conservative groups launched a multimillion dollar ad campaign to expose to America why President Joe Biden’s inaugural call for “unity” was a leftist joke. The Judicial Crisis Network (JCN), Heritage Action for America and Americans for Public Trust released three ads revealing Biden’s gaslighting on “unity.” That theoretical call was undercut by the extreme liberal agenda of his policy and personnel choices. Politico reported that one of the ads highlight “the role ‘dark money’ played in electing Biden as well as shaping his Cabinet and policies.” The liberal outlet described the campaign as “biting.”

    You are at a port along with many other people, whom you want to see follow a tried and true course set forth a long time ago by wise men who well knew the dangers of the journey. This periodically means changing ships, and at this juncture you have a choice between two companies, ships, captains and crews. The ship on the Left has a destination quite different than where you want to go live, with its course being plotted by Hell, and insists on engaging in perverted non-traditional social engineering and policies of perversions of what the Creator...

    BOTTOM LINE UP FRONT: We cons will be fine and we’ll win in the end, but it’ll take time and hard fighting (Am I allowed to say “fighting” in the political struggle context anymore, or will stupid people wet themselves? Let’s find out!). Sure, I may be in the minority among conservatives by saying that. There’s a lot of fear out there, a lot of pessimism, and a lot of muttering about how we’re all doomed.We’re not.We’ll be fine, and not cartoon dog drinking coffee in a blazing room meme fine either.Now, all righteous and cool people acknowledge that the...

    One of the stars of the Disney-Plus Star Wars series The Mandalorian, has been canceled by Hollywood’s cancel culture elitists after a series of brutally honest and accurate social media posts addressing both Black Lives Matter protests and today’s current political climate.Gina Carano, who played Cara Dune, a recurring character in the Star Wars spinoff series produced by Lucasfilm and Disney, was abruptly canceled (read: terminated) from her contract after a tweet explaining the verifiable correlations between the genesis of the Holocaust and how Trump supporters, conservatives and Republicans are being treated in the political arena today.A Lucasfilm spokesperson issued...
  • Why The Left Still Can’t Understand Trump’s Appeal: Conservatives aren’t motivated by resentment, they’re motivated by self-preservation in the face of a highly aggressive left.

    The corporate press is awash in articles speculating about the future of the Republican Party after Donald Trump. Will it purge pro-Trump elements and return to some semblance of its pre-2016 form, or double down on Trumpism and Trump, defending him even in the face of a major electoral loss and a Senate impeachment trial?Most such articles entirely misunderstand what’s going on with the GOP and how to think about Trump’s takeover of the party. One of the worst was just published in The Atlantic, written by Chris Hayes of MSNBC under the absurd headline, “The Republican Party Is Radicalizing...

Do not give up. Ever. Opportunities will present themselves. We have to be ready to take...

    In a passage in Ernest Hemingway’s The Sun Also Rises, a character named Mike is asked how he went bankrupt. “Gradually,” he replies. “Then all at once.”Such a framing could also describe the raw power of Big Tech, which has been evolving over the last two decades into what can accurately be described as an oligopoly (when a market is dominated entirely by a handful of firms). That power was fully unleashed last month. After playing footsie for the last decade with their massive market and narrative control over America, Big Tech finally shed any pretext of restraint or deference...

    It is one of the more remarkable (read, ‘’Disturbing’’) actions to witness taking place in the media -- reporters and journalists pushing for the silencing of particular outlets. The obviously troubling aspect is that you have a collection of people who wholly subsist on the freedoms granted by the First Amendment encouraging limitations to that very freedom of expression. Another component seen is that in their very specific targeting -- those being conservative outlets -- the mainstream players are essentially announcing their unbiased occupation of left-of-center territory.While some of these reactions can be chalked up to emotional backlash in a...
  • ‘Conservative’ Washington Examiner Compares Trump Supporters to al Qaeda

    The supposedly-conservative Washington Examiner has published a shocking op-ed comparing Trump supporters to al Qaeda. The shocking article, essentially calling for war against the American people, was written by former CIA officer Kevin Carroll. "We defeated al Qaeda and can do the same to the fascist thugs who attacked our democracy last month,” the Examiner tweeted. The “fascist thugs” the article refers to are Trump supporters who protested and Republican lawmakers who have attempted to practice their Second Amendment right at the Capitol. Of course, Carroll wrote nothing similar about the Black Lives Matter rioters who terrorized cities across the...

    Internet platforms like Twitter, Facebook and YouTube are not systematically biased against conservatives or right-wing viewpoints in their content moderation practices, according to an analysis from NYU researchers. According to the report released Monday, “False Accusation: The Unfounded Claim that Social Media Companies Censor Conservatives,” the allegation that social media companies engage in anti-conservative bias “is itself a form of disinformation: a falsehood with no reliable evidence to support it.” “No trustworthy large-scale studies have determined that conservative content is being removed for ideological reasons,” the NYU report says. “Even anecdotal evidence of supposed bias tends to crumble under close...

    <p>There is a free speech debate at Drake University over hateful and vulgar tweets from Associate English Professor Beth Younger, who called for Republicans “to suffer.” We have seen increasing vulgar attacks from academics, including such high-profile figures as Laurence Tribe in the last few years. Notably, Twitter did not suspend Younger’s account for calling for harm to all Republicans. I do not believe that she should be barred from social media or fired from Drake as a matter of free speech. Even with professors who have justified the murder of conservatives or killing police are protected in such hateful expressions. The solution to such hate speech is more (and better) speech. I would rather we denounce such speech than censor it.</p>

  • Conservatives Should Stop Trying To Justify Impeaching Trump: Holding Trump accountable for the actions of a handful of rioters is deeply misguided and Conservatives should know better than to support it.

    Now that Joe Biden has been sworn in as the 46th president, Democrats and the corporate press have turned their attention back to Donald Trump’s impeachment trial in the Senate, which will likely begin next month.Senate Democrats will need 17 Republicans to join them in order to convict Trump on the single impeachment charge of “willful incitement of insurrection.” Although Democrats might get a few GOP members like Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and Sen. Mitt Romney to join them, it’s unlikely they’ll get many more. That would mean Trump’s second impeachment ends up like his first: a pointless exercise in...

    "Either the Constitution matters and must be followed . . . or it is simply a piece of parchment on display at the National Archives." — Texas v. Pennsylvania et al. Texas v. Pennsylvania et al. did not deny setting rules for the 2020 election contrary to the Constitution. On December 10, 2020, the Supreme Court discounted that. By refusing to interfere as America’s ruling oligarchy serves itself, the court archived what remained of the American republic’s system of equal justice. That much is clear.

    A Republican Congressman is proposing to bribe Americans with federal stimulus cash in order to coerce them into getting experimental COVID-19 vaccines that have already shown to produce tremendous negative side-effects. Congressman Steve Stivers (R-OH) intends to make the next stimulus check contingent upon receiving the controversial and novel vaccinations. Stivers aims to deny $1,400 for ailing Americans desperate for economic relief unless they are stuck with the Big Pharma shots.
