    A Good Reason ^ | APRIL 29, 2018
    “If you can’t imagine how anyone could hold the view you are attacking, you just don’t understand it yet.” — Philosopher Anthony Weston in A Rulebook for Arguments I may be libertarian, but I understand my friends on the political left. One reason most of us libertarians and conservatives can “speak liberal” is because we generally are willing to grant that our left-leaning friends have good intentions. Conservatives think liberals are often wrong, but not that it’s dancing with the devil to listen to them – or to try to understand them. Many liberals, though, have trouble comprehending conservatives. In...

    A look at streaming services catering to families and conservatives reveals some surprisingly good titles.On Wednesday, Disney announced it added only 1.5 million domestic subscribers this spring to its flagship streaming service, with anticipated higher costs in the year ahead. The company’s market value quickly dipped to a two-year low. Such weak results seem to confirm the power of a movement among conservative parents to “cancel Disney” after surreptitiously recorded remarks by Disney creative executives about their “not-so-secret gay agenda” spread online. Relaying what he has heard from Christian families about those comments, Erick Goss, head of faith-based streamer Minno,...

    LONDON (AP) – Britain´s governing Conservatives suffered local election losses in their few London strongholds, according to results announced Friday that will pile more pressure on Prime Minister Boris Johnson amid ethics scandals and a worsening economic picture. Voting held Thursday for thousands of seats on more than 200 local councils decided who will oversee garbage collection and the filling of potholes, but were also an important barometer of public opinion ahead of the next national election, which must be held by 2024.

    Boris Johnson’s ruling Conservative Party is set to lose over 500 seats in Britain’s upcoming local elections, if polling is to be believed. Cataclysm appears to be on the cards for Boris Johnson’s ruling Conservative Party, with a survey finding that the scandal-prone government looks set to hand over a seat advantage to its leftist rival Labour Party the likes of which has not been seen in decades.

    CHARLOTTESVILLE, Virginia — Former Vice President Mike Pence spoke about the importance of an active conservative movement in America’s education systems, telling Breitbart News, “One of the most important battlefields for the future is on the campuses of our colleges and universities.” Breitbart News sat down with Pence in Pavilion IV on the Lawn at the University of Virginia, part of Thomas Jefferson’s historic Academical Village, which he designed to be the physical representation of the “intellectual frontiers that lay open to discovery” — an apt location given the topics he was set to address later in the evening to...

    For those who have watched Fox News over the years, it is no surprise that they announced the hiring of Bruce “Caitlyn” Jenner with great fanfare and hype. In the words of CEO Suzanne Scott, “Caitlyn’s story is an inspiration to us all. She is a trailblazer in the LGBTQ+ community and her illustrious career spans a variety of fields that will be a tremendous asset for our audience.”Perhaps these words could be used as an epitaph on Fox’s legacy? Mark the day carefully.All the talking points are in order in Scott’s short, effusive statement: Jenner’s transition from Bruce to...

    MSNBC “Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough on Thursday reacted to polling showing Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán with a significant lead in his bid for reelection. According to Scarborough, “so-called ‘conservatives'” are “being paid off by Orbán to sit there and parrot” his hatred of things like liberal democracy, Western democracy, free press, diversity and immigration. The former GOP congressman added that he hoped they enjoyed their money “because they’ve sold their souls.”

    America, and by extension the rest of the West, are afflicted with a sickening pathology that is rotting away the strength and power of our nations. Like a cancer that eats away at the strength of a healthy body, this pathology has been systematically weakening the social and physical infrastructure that made the West strong and capable. This pathology is nothing less than progressivism. Progressivism is an especially divisive and destructive force because it combines three features that individually are bad enough, but when fused become an absolutely horrid composition. The first of these is a penchant for undermining and...

    Disgraced CNN legal contributor Jeffrey Toobin wrote an opinion article on Tuesday that complained Republicans are winning the “ideological war” at Ketanji Brown Jackson’s Supreme Court confirmation hearing. Toobin, who was caught masturbating on a Zoom call with former colleagues at the New Yorker but returned to CNN after a seven-week suspension, penned an op-ed noting Democrats are allowing Republicans to win the debate over how the constitution should be read. “Conservatives Are Winning the Ideological War at Jackson’s Hearing,” the headline read.

    The classically-minded among you might be familiar with a set of events that are recorded by the Roman historian Livy as occurring in the early days of the Republic. These were known as the “secessions of the plebs,” or secessiones plebis, and they involved the literal withdrawal of the plebs - the common people - of the city of Rome from the city itself in acts of secession in which the common people would refuse to participate in Roman society until their grievances were addressed. As described by Livy, these grievances were indeed well-founded and involved severe financial (and even...

    If you blinked you might have missed the momentous occasion of the release of the second part of the UN IPCC’s sixth assessment report of how we're all going to die unless we all board jets and attend global warming conferences. Or give lots of money to those officials who do it for us.Since no one reads these things anyway, by the time the fourteenth chapter of the second part of the sixth assessment rolled around, everyone was drunk and decided to take shots at conservatives.Chapter 14 was on North America and warned of the threat posed by "individualistic" conservatives...

    Would you donate to causes that work against everything you believe in? Would you give your hard-earned money to people who will use that money to fund objectionable actions? These seem like ridiculous questions, yet for millions of conservatives, this happens daily. Whether it's ordering a cup of coffee from Starbucks, which matches donations to Planned Parenthood; dining at a restaurant that refuses to serve police officers; or banking with a financial institution that fires its unvaccinated employees, tens of millions of freedom-loving Americans are spending their money daily on companies that hate their values.Some historians believe that the average...

    In the first of a five-part series “Even black men can be fired for not being ‘woke’ enough“, a radio talk show canceled by Canada’s Bell Media and iHeartRadio demonstrates how individuals who are black are only useful to “liberals” when they repeat the slogans of their white intellectual masters. Those who do not conform to the “progressive” stereotype are kicked off the plantation. Writes Jamil Jivani: Wokeness—a political agenda with a superficial commitment to diversity and inclusion—has become a global ideological movement. And, more than government policy, it’s big corporations pushing this agenda and punishing those who refuse to...

    The Great White North is making for some damn good political watching, and it looks like it is not letting up anytime soon. The Canadian Trucker Protest, which rolled into the nation’s capital of Ottawa last weekend, is still going strong and has claimed its first political scalp.Unfortunately, it was not the Prime Minister whose government has caused all of this angst, but the leader of the opposition to Trudeau’s government, Conservative MP Erin O’Toole.From the National Post…Erin O’Toole was ousted from the party’s top job, leaving his former deputy Candice Bergen to helm a divided caucus until its members...

    U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson, fighting for his political life over revelations about his role in parties during strict lockdown, faces one of the most crucial weeks of his time in office -- and one that will likely decide whether he remains in 10 Downing Street, or is forced to step down.

    In, “Disloyal: How the Military Brass is Betraying Our Country”, the David Horowitz Freedom Center had warned that the Countering Extremist Activity Working Group imposed by the Biden administration and headed by Bishop Garrison (pictured above), a racist who constantly accused Republicans of racism for the most frivolous reasons, was preparing to purge conservatives from the military.Now the purge has arrived.The first task of Garrison’s CEWG was to develop a new definition of extremism. The newly added definition, which takes effect immediately, doesn’t actually define extremism. Since extremism is inherently relative to someone else’s moderation, it can’t be legally defined....
  • Dear Conservatives, Elon Musk is Not Your Friend: He is a climate change radical who partners with the government at every turn to enrich himself

    Conservatives have enjoyed Elon Musk's behavior in recent weeks, blasting Elizabeth Warren, opposing lockdowns, and insulting CNN, but the giddiness spewing from conservatives about Musk is foolish. To those embracing Elon Musk's political conversion, remember that Musk has been one of the most prominent advocates of the continuous scam known as climate change. Like Bill Gates and Al Gore, Musk is an extremely wealthy man who fattens his own pockets through propagating climate change. And like those other rich guys, Musk doesn't refrain from using private jets to fly around the world to save it. In 2018, Elon Musk reportedly...
