  • Hey Conservatives, You may like Black Rifle Coffee but does it like you?

    When Black Rifle Coffee (“BRC”) emerged on the scene, it targeted conservatives, positioning itself as a pro-American and, eventually, pro-Trump veteran-owned company. I don’t drink coffee so it didn’t matter to me. However, some coffee drinkers may be unhappy with what the company’s executives had to say to the New York Times.The Times article opens by assuring its readers that BRC’s CEO, Evan Hafer, really is a MAGA kind of guy. He voted for Trump and even believed Trump’s claims about election fraud – before he saw the light thanks to Bill Barr’s declaration that there was no fraud, gave...

    The Extremist Hymn (To the tune of "The Battle Hymn of the Republic"") Mine eyes have seen the horror of the militant extreme. I have heard about their tennis shoes and eyes that madly gleam. They are armed and more fanatical than you would ever dream. I'll track down every one! CHORUS Glory be, there goes another!*** Glory be, there goes another! Glory be, there goes another! I'll track down every one! Extremists are the people to the right of Gore Vidal For they don't believe in giving in to Socialism's goals. They don't even favor foreign aid for Yugoslavs...

    A bizarre incident is playing out Saturday morning in Wakefield, Massachusetts. Local police are saying that "during a motor vehicle stop, several heavily armed men claiming to be from a group that does not recognize our laws exited their vehicles and fled into the woodline" near I-95. "Approximately 8 males fled into the woods carrying rifles and handguns and appear to be contained in the wooded area adjacent to the highway," the Wakefield Police Department said in a statement. "No threats were made, but these men should be considered armed and dangerous." Massachusetts State Police, who are also on the...

    I know most of you have given up on or never were a member of Facebook, but I still go there occasionally to participate in a few Close Groups that I enjoy. This morning without notice, a pop up is starting to appear asking you if you know anyone who is becoming a extremist and to report them and that everything is confidential. The reprisals by liberals will be overwhelming, anyone they don't like will get reported....this is a first step towards wholesale reporting of people to law enforcement.....
  • "Most of the Protesters Were White": Native American Businesses See Their Pipeline Equipment Destroyed by Protesters

    The left has taken it upon itself to be the “protectors” of minorities, but what that really means is that it’s they who decide how minority communities function and run, even if it defies the wishes of the minority communities. Case in point, Jane Fonda decided for the Native American community that building a pipeline on their land wasn’t something the Native Americans should do, and in the spirit of speaking for them, destroyed their equipment. As reported by Fox News, the Gordon Construction company is owned by Natives and tasked with the construction of Line 3 from Candian energy...

    A group of climate protesters were taken into custody for trespassing outside Sen. Ted Cruz’s​ home in Houston — after they marched 400 miles to get there, refused to leave and “chose to be arrested,” according to law enforcement. ​ The eight who were arrested were part of a larger group of about 70 people protesting about climate change Monday morning. “The large majority of the group are extremely peaceful out there expressing the First Amendment rights​ ​​to protest against climate change,” Assistant Houston Police Chief Ban Tien said in a video​ posted on Facebook​. “Unfortunately, there was a small...

    Eight people have been arrested for trespassing during a climate change protest outside Ted Cruz's Houston home. Around 70 activists staged a demonstration outside the Texas Senator's $2million property in the ritzy River Oaks neighborhood on Monday morning, before police were called to the scene. The protest was held by the Sunrise Movement, an organization advocating for political action on climate change, with video showing some of the participants sitting on Cruz's front lawn and refusing to budge. Police negotiated with some of the activists for more than an hour, and threatened to take them into custody if they did...

    The narrative is here, and it doesn’t like you very much. In recent remarks before members of the U.S. House Homeland Security Committee, the chief of the D.C. Homeland Security and Emergency Management Agency claimed that domestic extremism has become “part of the cultural mainstream.” Former DHS official and USA Today contributor Elizabeth Neumann agrees: “Far-Right Extremists went mainstream under Trump.” “Extremists have gone mainstream,” echoes journalist Zahra Ahmad. “Lawyers, realtors and every-day folks make up their ranks.” Ahmad cites a figure suggesting a quarter of Americans hold “ideas incubated by white nationalists.” Not to be left out, NPR warns...

    Huffington Post ^ | 3/07/21 | Chris D’Angelo
    **SNIP** Trump’s four years in office greatly empowered anti-government extremists. His Interior Department repeatedly hosted people who want to see federal lands sold off. Fierce critics of endangered species protections and federal land management were tapped for powerful department posts. William Perry Pendley, a conservative lawyer with extreme anti-environmental views who spent his career lobbying for the sale of federal lands, was put in charge of Interior’s Bureau of Land Management. Trump issued pardons for people like Utah state Rep. Phil Lyman (R) - who in 2014 led anti-federal land protesters on an illegal ATV ride on public lands that...

    **SNIP** Frank Montoya, Jr., a recently retired FBI special agent, told Insider that the Capitiol siege indicates far-right extremism is a "fundamental" threat to national security, even more so than foreign terror groups. Indeed, many of these extremists are white, male US citizens, some with backgrounds in the military, and are less likely to be profiled as a terror threat than those of Middle Eastern descent in the post-9/11 era. "The threat we're facing right now is not only real but deeply embedded - and cult-like - in our society," Montoya said. "Look at how many military and law enforcement...

    Rep. Ilhan Omar, in an interview with Axios, said that progressives are waiting to fill Joe Biden’s cabinet and will push him to “act accordingly” on several policies including banning fracking. Omar’s comments are another in a long string from members of the ‘Squad’ – a more radical faction in the Democrat party – that they intend to push Biden to do their bidding should he win the election. The Minnesota Democrat believes “all of the cabinet positions should be filled by progressive Democrats.” She then ticked off a litany of policies that other Democrat presidential candidates supported but were...

    If the 2020 presidential election proves to be close, the radical Left has whipped themselves into a frenzy believing that President Trump will engineer a coup – an illegal seizure of power to contort our Democratic and election processes. Hmmm. Aren’t they the ones who’ve been attempting this for the last four years? Just recently, the Left published a 38-page guidebook, Stopping the Coup: The 2020 Guide. The guidebook states that, “If the Right is prepared to steal the election, then we must be prepared to disrupt the status quo and resist. As they have already amply proclaimed and exhibited,...

    Every good thing comes to an end. Since our founding -- based on ideas and principles rather than race or nationality -- America grew to become the world's most dominant power by the end of World War II. By the 1990s, once we won the Cold War, there was nobody else even close. Now we are completely falling apart. Our situation is so bad that it could be time to start debating whether we have, in fact, peaked as a country and as a world power. I sure hope not. Some aspects of our decline can be measured in numbers....

    British police say it was an “error of judgment” to include environmental protest group Extinction Rebellion in an official document that listed extremist organizations. The counterterrorism police unit for southeast England included the climate change protesters alongside Islamic extremists and banned neo-Nazi group National Action in a guide to “safeguarding young people and adults from ideological extremism,” The Guardian newspaper reported. The guide said that “while concern about climate change is not in itself extreme, activists may encourage vulnerable people to perform acts of violence.” …

    Several weeks ago, progressive writer John Pavlovitz wrote an article objecting to the idea that he is part of the “radical left.” He doesn’t think he’s radical at all. In fact, he prefers to see himself as part of what he calls the “human middle.” He writes, “I’m pretty sure that most people reside here in this place alongside me: the desire for compassion and diversity and equality and justice; that these things aren’t fringe ideologies or extremist positions — but simply the best way to be human."

    Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey recently announced that the social media platform will no longer run political advertisements of any kind. Twitter is a private company and is free to adopt whatever policies it wants, but this decision is not the win for civil discourse and our “democratic infrastructure” that Dorsey claims it is. Defending his decision, Dorsey drew a Manichean dichotomy between meritoriously “earned” media and misleading paid content. That dichotomy is shallow and misleading. While he is right that, absent paid political advertising, “a political message earns reach when people decide to follow an account or retweet,” Dorsey does...

    FBI Director Christopher Wray on Wednesday said that violent, racially-motivated extremists in the U.S. are connecting with foreign extremists, with some traveling abroad to train. Appearing before the House Homeland Security Committee, Wray was pressed to discuss how the FBI handles domestic terrorism suspects and how it is different than foreign terrorism suspects. "We are starting to see racially-motivated violent extremists connecting with likeminded individuals overseas online, certainly, and in some instances we have seen some folks travel overseas to train," Wray said after Rep. Lou Correa (D-Calif.) expressed concern about domestic terrorists traveling to Ukraine for training. A U.S....

    In case you missed it this week, 20 Democrats hopeful to take back the White House in 2020 participated in their first election debates. Candidates were split on two stages between two nights, with each hour proving Democrats have officially abandoned any moderate position with a full embrace of the most radical leftist positions. Whether it's destroying the private health insurance system, raising taxes on the middle class, providing "free" healthcare to illegal aliens or supporting abortion up until nine months, candidates made their positions clear. But according to a new Rasmussen poll, the majority of voters believe the...
