  • Hispanics are running away from Democrats. Bidenomics is making things even worse

    The biggest story of Hispanic Heritage Month, which began last Friday, is that Hispanics are coming home to the Republican Party. Earlier this month, the New York Times published a bombshell article headlined "Consistent Signs of Erosion in Black and Hispanic Support for Biden." The piece chronicles the ongoing political migration among minorities, especially Hispanics, from Democrats to Republicans. It highlights twelve "high-quality" 2024 election polls that show Biden holds a mere 50% to 40% lead among Hispanic voters. That's down significantly from the 65% of Hispanics who voted for him in 2020. This polling destroys the media narrative that...
  • Virginia Gets Ready for High-Stakes Election as Early Voting Opens Friday

    A lot is at stake in Virginia’s election this November: all 140 seats in the state House and Senate are up for grabs. With redistricting and over a dozen retirements, including Senate leaders from both parties, this year’s election is more competitive and uncertain than in previous years. All possible outcomes are within reach. Republicans could keep the House and win the Senate, paving the path for Republican Gov. Glenn Youngkin to achieve his conservative agenda over the next two years. The success would inform Republican strategies for the national races in 2024 and give Mr. Youngkin’s presidential ambition, whether...
  • IN-DEPTH: 'We Had to Take Action': New Mexico Referendum Project Aims to Rescind Six Progressive Laws Using Rights Granted in State Constitution

    A grassroots movement is challenging six laws passed in the New Mexico state legislature that its organizers say threaten their communities, infringe upon parental rights, and compromise the election process. “People are starting to realize that this is not the state that they grew up in,” Larry Marker, an independent oil and gas producer who is a part of the group that initiated the Referendum Project, told The Epoch Times. The nonpartisan Referendum Project's mission is supported by Article IV, Section 1 of the state constitution, which gives citizens the right to “reserve the power to disapprove, suspend and annul...

    California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) said in an interview Sunday that he agrees Robert F. Kennedy Jr. is “being used” by conservatives as he challenges President Biden for the Democratic nomination. When asked by NBC’s Chuck Todd on “Meet the Press” about his relationship with Kennedy, Newsom said that their points of views have split “pretty significantly and consequently.” He pointed to Kennedy’s stances on vaccines and other issues as reasons for splitting with him, but noted that he did not discourage him from running against the Biden while noting that he revered the Kennedy family.
  • Pope says ‘backward’ U.S. conservatives have replaced faith with ideology

    Pope Francis has blasted the “backwardness” of some conservatives in the U.S. Catholic Church, saying they have replaced faith with ideology and that a correct understanding of Catholic doctrine allows for change over time. Francis’ comments were an acknowledgment of the divisions in the U.S. Catholic Church, which has been split between progressives and conservatives who long found support in the doctrinaire papacies of St. John Paul II and Benedict XVI, particularly on issues of abortion and same-sex marriage. Many conservatives have blasted Francis’ emphasis instead on social justice issues such as the environment and the poor, while also branding...

    Months after what critics have decried as a conservative takeover at New College of Florida, students and professors say a sense of confusion and anxiety looms over the start of fall semester in Sarasota, Florida. Amy Reid, a member of the school’s Board of Trustees, said course options have dwindled after nearly 40% of faculty members have resigned. Reid said the situation is quickly becoming “untenable.” “Just before I came to this meeting, I received word that one more faculty member in biology is leaving,” she told CNN. “That’s going to make a challenge for students to complete their areas...
  • How conservatives use ‘verbal jiu-jitsu’ to turn liberals’ language against them

    CNN ^ | August 20, 2023 | John Blake
    Republicans are masters of verbal jiu-jitsu. It’s a form of linguistic combat in which the practitioner takes a political phrase or concept popularized by their opponent and gradually turns into an unusable slur. Like the Japanese martial art known as jiu-jitsu, its devotees avoid taking opposing arguments head on and instead redirect their opponents’ momentum to beat them. If this sounds abstract, consider the evolution of “ woke.” The word is defined as being “actively aware of social injustice.” But it has been transformed into a contemporary scourge, one that a politician compared to a “virus more dangerous than any...

Moreover, there have been reports that people within the company were harassed for being conservative.Now, a whistleblower has released evidence of this very thing happening.As first highlighted by Bounding Into Comics, a YouTube channel called WDW Pro was handed documents by an unnamed whistleblower within Disney that showed employees of the company were required to perform woke actions in order to maintain their job security.

    Banker staff at Monzo, which previously refused to open an account for Chancellor Jeremy Hunt, branded Conservatives in Britain as “evil” and “ugly” in the latest example of political bias in the industry. Internal messages uncovered by The Telegraph revealed a deep seeded antipathy towards Conservatives among some staff members at Monzo Bank, which boasts some seven million customers in the UK. The bank has come under criticism amid the Nigel Farage debanking scandal after it was revealed that Conservative MP Jeremy Hunt was turned down for an account before he became the top economic official in the country as...

    Polling and political sentiment in Westminster predicted the ruling Conservatives would lose all three Parliamentary by-elections (special elections) being held in England, but anger in London over Labour mayor Khan’s push for radical anti-car measures upset the apple cart. Scandals and resignations have seen several vacated seats in Britain’s House of Commons in recent months, three of which were resolved with by-elections on Thursday, with one each going to the Conservatives, Labour, and the Liberal Democrats. All three had been Conservative seats, and the party was predicted to face massive swings to the opposition and lose them all, but pundits...

    American Thinker ^ | 07/07/2023 | Thomas Lifson
    The strategy of the American Marxists seeking to impose a cultural revolution has been top-down, derived from the work of Antonio Gramsci, taking control of the “commanding heights” of institutional power and imposing their vision on what old style Marxists called “the masses.” So long as the great unwashed remained passive, oblivious to what was happening, it was highly successful. But something happened to disrupt this stealthy plan. First, Donald Trump won the presidency, teaching the much-derided non-elites that they had more power than the ruling class believed possible. Even though Trump was denied a second term through means both...

    Snip ********************************************** Part of what has made Musk’s Twitter so popular is it’s a free-speech zone where all free speech is tolerated so long as it doesn’t violate the law. Zuckerberg’s platforms, on the other hand, appear to be safe spaces where only state-sanctioned opinions and facts may be openly shared. With this in mind, Fox News’s Brian Kilmeade warned the network’s watchers on Thursday about using the new app. Speaking on Fox News’s “Fox & Friends,” he reminded everybody that Facebook has a record of working with the government to silence free speech. “Mark Zuckerberg’s trying to get you...

    It may be one of the most surefire findings in all of social psychology, repeatedly replicated over almost five decades of study: American conservatives say they are much happier than American liberals. They also report greater meaning and purpose in their lives, and higher overall life satisfaction…. [T]he entire gap…equates to about a half-point on a four-point scale, a sizable happiness divide. According to social scientists, here are four reasons why conservatives are happier than (il)liberals:

    Dear Amy: Four months before my daughter’s wedding, she told me that her uncle (my brother, “Dave”) would make her feel unsafe if he was a guest. She asked me not to invite him. My daughter is very politically progressive, as are many of her friends, and although she and Dave have always had a good relationship (I thought), he is a conservative voter and has supported candidates we all abhor. Dave has always been very nice, so my daughter’s request surprised me.

    Barclays Bank – one of the top 20 in the world – has paid more than $25,000 in compensation to Dr. Mike Davidson, an executive of a Christian trust, after arbitrarily closing the charity’s bank accounts due to pressure from LGBTQ+ activists. Activists claimed the Core Issues Trust and the International Federation for Therapeutic and Counseling Choice were pushing “conversion therapy” onto people who voluntarily seek to change their sexual preferences or gender identities. Barclays – a leading sponsor of London’s gay pride parade – succumbed to the pressure and sent a letter to Davidson, notifying him of the bank’s...

    Article Dig In Secret documents obtained by the House Judiciary Committee show that a Department of Homeland Security agency "expanded its mission to surveil Americans’ speech on social media, colluded with Big Tech and government-funded third parties to censor by proxy, and tried to hide its plainly unconstitutional activities from the public," according to an interim staff report released Monday night. The findings add details to reporting by Just the News about the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency and its work with private entities to remove, throttle and label purported misinformation on elections, Hunter Biden and COVID-19 — efforts that...

    Conservative leader Kyriakos Mitsotakis won Greece’s national elections on Sunday (25 June) with a clear majority, securing a second term during which he vowed to bring about major reforms to transform the country. With nearly all the votes counted, Mitsotakis’s New Democracy party obtained a score of over 40.5%, well ahead of the leftist Syriza party led by former premier Alexis Tsipras, which scored less than 18%. The margin is the widest for the conservatives in almost 50 years, as voters rewarded them for nursing Greece back to economic health after a crippling debt crisis. “The people have given us...

    Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron, a Republican who is also running for governor, secured a pledge from JPMorgan Chase that may help protect conservatives from the threat of “debanking”—when banks cut off services over the religious or political stance of a customer, including nonprofits. Cameron slammed the “hypocrisy that we see from big businesses.” Speaking with “The Daily Signal Podcast,” Cameron notes that corporations “will promote the ideas and the agenda of the far Left, but they remain quiet or dismissive of protecting the First Amendment rights of religious organizations and—dare I say—the majority of Americans who firmly believe that...
