  • Dems Melting Down Because It's Not Just Manchin and Sinema Objecting to Eliminating the Filibuster

    Some of the folks on the left have been seething at Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ), viewing them as the blockers to Democrats being able to eliminate the filibuster and seize total power.There’s no question that Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema have been standing strong to protect the rules and defend the rights of the minority party.But they’re not the only people, as some have pointed out, although they get most of the press. Democrats have a much deeper issue because some others are also not so happy with these efforts. But those Democrats are happy...
  • Leftists Launching Recall Of Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler For Not Being Far Enough To The Left

    Only in Portland, where gangs of far left antifa thugs have free reign to riot, tax after tax after tax is passed, major roads are narrowed to make way for bike and pedestrian paths, and gender neutral bathrooms seem to be the highest priority, can one of the nations furthest-left mayors not be far enough to the left to satisfy the far left activists. All the virtue signaling city resolutions condemning hate and “white supremacy” can’t help Mayor Ted Wheeler now, as the aforementioned far left activists have formed a PAC to recall him and are planning on gathering signatures...

    Americans may be surprised to learn from Alan Dershowitz that their constitution is far more intrusive and oppressive than what they and their forefathers have believed for generations. The law ‘scholar’ declared yesterday that “you have no (constitutional) right to not be vaccinated.” One possible explanation for Dershowitz’s peculiar constitutional ‘interpretation’ is that some parts of the American constitution were actually written in Yiddish, Hebrew and Aramaic. As such, their meaning is only accessible to a small privileged segment within the American population, one that amounts to 2% or less. But there is a far better explanation that shines light...
  • NYC's Billionaire's Row gets new neighbors: De Blasio plans to build a homeless shelter in elite Manhattan neighborhood near luxury Plaza Hotel is given the green light after court dismisses protest lawsuit by residents and business

    A homeless shelter is to be created on one of New York City's most expensive streets, after a legal battle to prevent its opening ended in defeat. A New York state appeals court on Thursday dismissed the concerns voiced by a coalition of residents and businesses from the Manhattan neighborhood by Central Park, nicknamed Billionaire's Row. Billionaire's Row is not actually one street, or officially defined.

    If you know a man is a man and a woman is a woman, then referring to Jenner in the feminine sense violates your moral compass and prescription to the truth.Since announcing a gubernatorial bid in California, Caitlyn Jenner has ignited a conversation about who the qualified Republican candidate to run in the left-wing stronghold is. Jenner sat down with Sean Hannity on Fox News and ridiculed Democrat Gov. Gavin Newsom for his “hypocrisy” in handling COVID-19. Jenner also released a campaign video about the “California dream” that displayed clips of the retired athlete competing in the 1976 Olympics decathlon.Jenner...
  • Idea: In 2022, Let’s Nominate Candidates Who Aren’t Awful

    To save our country from President *’s reign of error, the Republican Party is going to have to think outside the box, push the envelope, and execute other similar cliches. I have a suggestion for an innovative strategy for the 2022 election cycle that might well overcome the usual GOP establishment tendency toward failure. I say – and you may want to sit down – that this time we should pick some candidates that don’t suck. Hear me out. It’s kind of crazy, but it just might work. A nominee who doesn’t suck has certain advantages over the usual losers...
  • CNN’s Cuomo: Gaetz Would ‘Be a Dead Man on the Left’

    On Tuesday’s broadcast of CNN’s “Cuomo Primetime,” host Chris Cuomo argued that if Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) was a Democrat “he’d be a dead man on the left. Because it’s all about optics.” Cuomo said, “This is a party that will hang with Matt Gaetz — and I’m all for due process — but he’d be a dead man on the left. Because it’s all about optics. But here, they stick with him, they stick with the QAnon kook, and they kill Liz Cheney. So, if you’re a moderate, if you put your toe in the pool…aren’t you a dead...

    Amidst a national reckoning with the criminal justice system, police officers from precincts across the country appear to be leaving the force in droves. The Seattle Police Department announced more than 200 officers have left the force since last year, according to the Associated Press (AP). Police Chief Adrian Diaz said the department was facing a “staffing crisis,” noting 180 officers left in 2020 while 66 officers have left in 2021 thus far, according to the AP

    While protests were growing following the police shooting of Daunte Wright in Minneapolis, the buzz on social media quickly began taking on a divisive tone. Joining in on the action was Representative Rashida Tlaib, who clearly was not pleased with the latest developments. But rather than calling for police reform or justice for the victim, Tlaib immediately turned the dials up to eleven and declared that there should be no more policing or incarceration of any sort, saying that the system “can not be reformed.” Yes, we’re back to the entire “abolish the police” theme.

    Concerns are mounting from bipartisan US lawmakers and Afghan women's rights activists that the hard-won gains for women and civil society in Afghanistan could be lost if the United States makes a precipitous withdrawal from the country. President Joe Biden has suggested it will be difficult to meet the May 1 deadline for US troops to leave the country as dictated in the deal the Trump administration signed with the Taliban. However, there are fears that if the US withdraws troops before the conditions on the ground are right -- regardless of the date on the calendar -- there will...

    So long as the Left controls the discourse, it’s going to be racism from here until the eye can see—and beyond. So long as the purported eradication of racism is the priority, the Right will never beat the Left at their own game. The more racist America is, the more urgent the fight against racism, the more exalted are those who fight this scourge (the Left), the more tarnished are those who defend America and its past (the Right). By any objective assessment, systemic racism has long since been eliminated in America. There are no racist laws or policies anywhere...

    The American Mind ^ | 04/05/21 | Arthur Milikh
    The Left wants to ban “hate speech” using the powerful national institutions they now govern. They do not hide this intention but say so openly. Powerful tools—like Big Tech, a nearly unified press, and the national security state—give speech restrictionists the impression that this goal can and should be pursued. But exactly what kind of speech do they want to ban, and exactly how would this ban transform America? “Hate speech,” on the surface, seems to mean racial epithets, slurs, or Holocaust denial. But such speech has already disappeared from America’s public square. There is no “hate speech” in any...

    Image of Constitution public domain, red text added by Dean WeingartenTo those who support the United States Constitution and the Second Amendment, many propositions put forward by the ruling class do not make any sense. The United States is/has been the most successful, most prosperous, most powerful, most free and least racist (with the exception of Affirmative Action) nation on the face of the earth, at least for the last thirty years. The "poor" in the United State would be upper middle class in most of the rest of the world. Given this reality, when appraising the proposals of the...

    The threat is said to be existential. It fuels secessionism. Gnaws at national unity. Abets Islamism. Attacks France’s intellectual and cultural heritage. The threat? “Certain social science theories entirely imported from the United States,’’ said President Emmanuel Macron. French politicians, high-profile intellectuals and journalists are warning that progressive American ideas — specifically on race, gender, post-colonialism — are undermining their society. “There’s a battle to wage against an intellectual matrix from American universities,’’ warned Mr. Macron’s education minister. Emboldened by these comments, prominent intellectuals have banded together against what they regard as contamination by the out-of-control woke leftism of American...

    One of the most shocking developments in the days following the latest Capitol riot has been the ease with which left-wing corporations and tech behemoths have been able to deny service to people on the right.This is surprising not because of some conservative delusion that the increasingly progressive corporate world is friendly to our views. We know better. No, this blatantly belief-based discrimination is astounding because of the holy war that erupts any time a conservative attempts to deny services to another person based on constitutionally protected and deeply-held religious beliefs.When the left refuses service due to an arbitrary standard...
