  • CPAC 2022 - Today's Last Days Unregenerate Conservative Optimism

    IFB ^ | 2/26/22
    Dear friends,, in light of CPAC this weekend, please do not get sucked into all the rah-rah and false optimism about America's "future". Look, I'll be watching like many of you will be, but all the pep talk, solutions and optimistic future appraisals are not enough to put out the raging fires of our doomed, godless, lawless and imploding nation! That is just the reality which many unregenerate conservatives will not hear. Like the doomed Twin Towers of 9/11, our national lawless inferno is past the point of no return and unregenerate Conservative optimism will not extinguish the engulfing flames...

    “You have such a fervent, passionate, evangelical faith in this country…why in the name of God don’t you have any faith in the system of government you’re so hell-bent to protect? You want to defend the United States of America, then defend it with the tools it supplies you with—its Constitution. You ask for a mandate, General, from a ballot box. You don’t steal it after midnight, when the country has its back turned.”- Seven Days in May (1964)No doubt about it: the coup d’etat was successful.That January 6 attempt by so-called insurrectionists to overturn the election results was not...

    Kevin, Today begins a new chapter in our Country. While the Left promises to implement their Big Government Socialist Agenda, the Republican Party will need to come together and work even harder if we’re going to continue putting America FIRST. The Democrats have control of the White House, the Senate, and the House, and our Party will be relying on you now more than ever. YOU are going to play a vital role in our efforts to preserve all of our historic accomplishments over the last four years, and it’s critical that we have your support. We need your help...

    The 2020 U.S. Presidential Election was the most contentious and corrupt election in the history of America (it has been reported that almost 80% of Republicans, about 30% of Independents, and 17% of Democrats believe there was fraud). The shadow government and globalist elite have used an illegal election to replace a president that wanted to put America first with a president that will push world government, and these people are now closer to their long-cherished goal of a one-world government, economy, and godless global religion than they have ever been. In my last article, I reported that Dr. James...
  • My Unpopular opinion: The Georgia Senate runoff was inconsequential; Even If Trump's not President, the Democrats have the votes regardless

    NOQ Report ^ | 01/10/2021 | Ray Fava
    For the last couple of months, there was a debate raging in conservatism about whether to turn out for the Georgia Senate runoffs. I was reticent on this issue until election night, where I made several comments blaming the Republicans for their own defeat. And while I will call out Raphael Warnock for being a blatant heretic of Christianity, this does little to translate for supporting David Perdue, the opponent of the other socialist. I stayed silent because I could see both arguments and both arguments had merit. The Republicans enabled the same voting system that failed for Trump, unironically....

    Donald Trump may end up losing the 2020 election in the Electoral College, but he won the campaign that ended on Nov. 3. Democrats had been talking of a "sweep," a "blowout," a "blue wave" washing the Republicans out of power, capturing the Senate, and bringing in an enlarged Democratic majority in Nancy Pelosi's House. They visualized the ouster of Trump in a defeat so massive and humiliating that it would serve as an eternal repudiation of the man. And, most intoxicating of all, they believed they would be seen by history as the angels of America's deliverance. It was...

    Even though American culture warriors of the right are fighting what Tolkien called ‘the long defeat’, surrender in the Battle of Chick-fil-A was a monumental symbolic loss. That’s because the fast-food chain had become what psychology calls a ‘condensation symbol’: a phrase or entity that powerfully evokes a worldview, and usually calls forth strong emotions around it. Chick-fil-A sells fried chicken. When are chicken nuggets not mere morsels of battered and fried chicken? When LGBT activists transform them into sacraments of Bible-thumping wickedness, as they have done with enormous effectiveness since 2012. That was the year that Dan Cathy, CEO...

    (Original pub date was 9/2017) “Americans are getting closer and closer to understanding that they live in an economic system that is not working for them, and will not work for their kids.” These days, Richard Wolff is feeling pretty glad he stuck around teaching this long. Now in his 70s and lecturing at the New School University and having become, over the course of his nearly 50-year-long professorial career, one of America’s most prominent Marxist economists, Wolff is used to being fringe. In 2011, the same year that Occupy Wall Street injected dissatisfaction with the financial system into the...
  • U2 Bring Fans to Tears with Videos of Syrian Refugees During 'Joshua Tree' Stop at AT&T Stadium

    05/30/2017 6:42:56 AM PDT · by Blue Turtle · 27 replies
    When U2 released The Joshua Tree in 1987, it was a time when some of the U.S. was politically divided under President Ronald Reagan’s administration among other sociopolitical turbulence around the world. Thirty years later and with more than 25 million album copies sold, the album remains oddly relevant as the U.S. is politically divided again under a different administration and other global turmoil such as the problems in Venezuela, the Syrian refugee crisis and most recently an ISIS-led attack on Ariana Grande’s concert in Manchester.

    The Republican effort to repeal and replace Obamacare—the American Health Care Act—finally came up for a final vote in the House. First put forward by Speaker Paul Ryan in 2009, it offered few surprises to Republicans. And the effort itself was very familiar, as Republicans had voted over 60 times to repeal Obamacare since its passage eight years ago. Yet, when the time came to exercise the prerogative of the majority and finally repeal and replace President Obama’s deeply flawed social program, Republicans came up short. Over the past two weeks, moderate Republicans argued that they could not vote for...

    Major resurgence for Trump I’ve never seen anything like it. Republicans who say they endorse Trump are, in amazing frequency, repeatedly trashing him and making a point of saying he has already lost the election. The extent here, of a party declaring itself defeated all the way to Election Day, is unprecedented! Yet, while the faithful Trump supporters are attacked mercilessly from the Left and the Right, they continue confident of a Trump victory November 8.

    2016 has been a big year for protest politics -- not just in the United States, what with Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump getting over 40 percent of primary votes, but also all over Europe and Latin America, where voters have been rejecting the advice of their nations' political, financial and media establishments. Two prime examples were in referendums. On June 23, 52 percent of British voters rejected the advice of Prime Minister David Cameron and other parties' leaders and chose to leave rather than remain in the European Union. On Oct. 2, 50.2 percent of voters in Colombia voted...

    In an op-ed for the Fort-Worth Star-Telegram, radical leftist Robert Jensen and journalism professor at the University of Texas at Austin, calls on Americans to pursue “the most courageous act of citizenship in the United States today: pledging to dismantle the American empire.” Jensen insists, “The United States has lost the war in Iraq, and that's a good thing.” With Professor Jensen, leftist stalwart pundits and publications—including The Nation, Barbara Ehrenreich, and Howard Zinn—have abandoned pacifism in favor of rooting for America's terrorist (“insurgent”) enemies in Iraq. To witness the extent to which the radical Left has become a willing...

    We're seeing a lot of the same things around here we saw the last two losing election cycles and they all point to a loss... "Celebration" of polls showing the GOP candidate losing by a small margin. When Drudge advertises "shock polls" that still show our guy losing and everyone on here is celebrating, even when these types of polls are amongst only a few showing it even close you know it's bad news. Self appointed polling statisticians on here demanding polling internals and then applying their personal sauce to show the desired outcome. Saw the same thing. The blame...

    Trump is at the top of the polls, and that may not change. Nevertheless, he will not receive my support. I am rather tired of a screeching establishment requiring that we support whomever is the current frontunner, and telling us we need to "get in line", like robots. That kind of talk is groupthink, much like Obamamania. It has no place in conservatism. Trump is the kind of candidate who appeals to base emotions and the thirst for popular appeal. We should never treat candidates as celebrities. But increasingly, we do. I once thought that those on our side of...

    Recently I've been hearing a lot of conservatives saying things like, "It's over. The left has won. This is no longer America. I'm not even going to celebrate the Fourth of July this year." I confess this disturbs me. I expect feminists to squeal like hysterical little girls. Second Kings, Chapter 6, contains one of my favorite Bible stories. The King of Aram (which was more or less Syria) is waging war against Israel. But every time he sets up an ambush, the prophet Elisha tips off the Israelites and they get away. Because Elisha is a prophet! So he...

    What if Iraq is not a country of people with common cultures and interests and generally accepted borders, but rather an amalgam of warring groups cobbled together by British and American diplomats? What if only a strongman like Hussein — however evil and ill suited for government by Western standards — can keep peace and stability in an artificial country like Iraq?

    .......... the United States needs its conservative leaders and activists in the public square now more than at any time in our lifetimes. If we hold on, we'll win. Blue State America is doomed, and the blue-staters represented by President Obama and his party cannot save it. ...... we red-staters must remain fully involved and fully engaged in American politics and culture. This is especially true after a year like 2012 -- when we lose. Better to quote U.S. General Joseph Stilwell after the loss of Burma to the Japanese. "I claim," Vinegar Joe said, "we took a hell of...

    I'm James Kvaal, the new policy director for President Obama's 2012 campaign. You'll be hearing from me occasionally about the President's policies and those of our opponents, and how we can all help bring about change for our country. Yesterday, we accomplished one major change when President Obama announced that all American troops in Iraq will be home before the holidays. With that action, the Iraq war will end. And one of the President's central promises will have been kept. Both as Americans and as supporters of President Obama, this is something for us to reflect on, and be proud...
