  • Biden’s Weakness On The World Stage Is Dangerous: While the left may control the media narrative, it’s not fooling Xi Jinping or Vladimir Putin into thinking Joe Biden is strong.

    A series of embarrassing incidents in recent days shows that while the left may control the media narrative, it’s not fooling Xi Jinping or Vladimir Putin into thinking President Joe Biden is strong.Biden had a beyond-friendly interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos, former press secretary to President Bill Clinton, on March 16 in which he allowed Stephanopoulos to lure him into calling Russian President Vladimir Putin a “killer” with “no soul.” It would be one thing if there were some purpose behind Biden’s hostile utterance about his Russian counterpart, but it didn’t appear tied to any strategic foreign policy goal.Other than...

    I know most of you have seen the clip of Alena Lee, (Asian) weatherbabe, (sexist) apologizing for running the clip featuring Kitler the Kat (white supremacist). She honestly should have known better: the left is currently demanding reparations for something that occurred 150 years ago; it should have been obvious that it’s too soon to make jokes about something that happened a mere 80 years ago. I would say “show me the person who feels this portrayal of a cat born with a Hitler moustache in any way glorifies Nazis rather than ridiculing them” but apparently they are legion. Taking...

    Think of the glass maze as society; the blue Solo cups represent ordinary working blokes, the red Solos the entrepreneurs, the builders. The plastic goblets the elites.Think of Cat #1 is a libertarian, carefully navigating through society without leaving a trace because he essentially just wishes to be left alone. Cat #2 is more of a modern Republican; he doesn’t wish to make many waves but does every now and again like to kick a bit of sand in the face of one of his enemies. Cat #3, well Cat #3 is your typical psychotic progressive liberal. Progressives have never...
  • HG Wells: The Open Conspiracy: Rebellion against God on earth

    In 1928, HG Wells penned a book entitled, The Open Conspiracy: Blue Print for World Revolution. The similarities between what we find contained in Wells's book which was written almost 100 years ago, to what has transpired since, and to that which we can observe unfolding before us today, are uncanny. The conclusion of his ideas is the call for the overthrow of the present world order, and the creation of a world-state, which, we can observe playing out in our world today. Not only so, but Wells laid out a very specific plan to bring about the destruction of...
  • 3 Key Takeaways From The U.S.-China Summit In Alaska: The CCP Cleverly Employs the U.S. Left’s Rhetoric to Attack America, the Biden Administration's Policy Lacks Clarity

    Biden's China policy amounts to promising to 'work with allies,' but the American people deserve to know exactly what was accomplished by his administration at the Alaska summit.The Biden administration’s first high-level meeting with Communist China in Anchorage, Alaska, last week opened with a war of words, then closed with nothing meaningful to show in the end. Still, there are some critical takeaways from this important summit.1. Diplomacy Is Political Theater for Domestic AudiencesThe traditional understanding of diplomacy is that through dialogue and negotiations, countries seek to influence each other’s behaviors to achieve a mutually beneficial outcome while avoiding war....

    At the start of the recent talks between senior US and Chinese diplomats in Alaska, the Chinese Foreign minister, Yang Jiechi, made uncharacteristically public belligerent statements. Yang proclaimed that the US did not come to the meeting from a “position of strength” in this first US-China meeting of the Biden Administration. According to a Tweet from Disclose TV: “China's FM Yang threatens ‘firm actions’ in response to ‘US interference’ on arrival for Alaska talks: US is the champion of cyberattacks; Black Americans are slaughtered in the US; US uses military might & financial supremacy to pressure countries.” This level of...

SNIP Interestingly, he says that although his politics skewer very much to the left, his stand-up audience is generally Republican. “I’m very progressive so I find a way on stage to balance it,” he explained. “To not sell out and yet not let the people who voted for Trump feel less than entertained. It’s a real tightrope walk. I enjoy it and it’s because I respect people with dissenting opinions. Something that’s not happening in America right now.”

    Just when you think that wokeness could not become more absurd, it surpasses itself. A leaked document from the Edinburgh Slavery and Colonialism Legacy Review Group recently revealed that the grave of Adam Smith—author of one of the most important books written in history, the Wealth of Nations (1776)—has been listed as a potential site to investigate on the basis that Smith allegedly accepted slavery as “inevitable.”

    I was a Bernie fan, but Biden’s policies have impressed me. Still, I’m not hailing him as a ‘transformational’ leader just yetK, fine, I was wrong. But, in this case, I’m very happy to be wrong: it seems that Joe Biden may be shaping up to be a progressive president after all. I supported Bernie Sanders in the Democratic primaries, but I can now see that Biden was the better choice. When Biden announced he was running for president, I was dismayed. I thought he was Hillary Clinton 2.0 and we were going to see a repeat of 2016. (And...

    Democratic leaders are cheering the imminent final passage of President Biden’s $1.9 trillion COVID-19 stimulus bill, with the White House calling it the “most progressive” bill in US history and Republicans using the same claim to bash it. The partisan posturing over the bill and its legacy is shaping up ahead of anticipated final passage in the House of Representatives on Tuesday.

    On March 6, a coalition of progressive candidates backed by the local chapter of the Democratic Socialists of America took over the leadership of the Nevada Democratic Party, sweeping all five party leadership positions in a contested election that evening. Whitmer, who had been chair of the Clark County Democratic Party, was elected chair. The incumbents had prepared for the loss, having recently moved $450,000 out of the party’s coffers and into the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee’s account. The DSCC will put the money toward the 2022 reelection bid of Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto, a vulnerable first-term Democrat. While Whitmer’s...

    Although subject-verb agreement is an age old grammar conundrum for some, the use of “they” as a singular pronoun in order to avoid the use of a gender specific one is the New Age grammar nemesis. This of course has led to the 21st century game of walking on glass and the invention of a multitude new gender pronouns. Like all post-modern concepts, these pronouns have no consistent rules, are difficult to use and add negative utility.It started out, as all progressive plans do, with good intentions and limited application:But it quickly galloped off into the hills and is still...

    Joe Biden is off to the most left-wing start of any Democratic president in recent memory. The dulcet tones of Biden’s inaugural address already seem an artifact of a bygone era. Republicans will hammer him for the rest of his presidency for failing to deliver on his unifying message, but the fact is that Biden is governing as he promised — further to the left of his own record, further to the left of Barack Obama, and further to the left of any Democrat who made his career prior to the ascendency of the cultural left.

    On New Year’s Day 2021 the 105th Annual Rose Bowl was supposed to be played in Pasadena, California. Instead, it will be played 270 miles north of Pasadena—Pasadena, Texas that is, in the AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. California’s on a losing streak and the eventual loser might well be the state’s governor, Gavin Newsom. Just in the past few weeks, Hewlett Packard Enterprise and Oracle moved from Silicon Valley to Texas. Elon Musk moved to Texas.

    Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti vetoed a plan backed by black and Latino members of the City Council to redistribute money cut from the police Tuesday because he said it was too focused on everyday needs and not on the “call of history.” The plan, which was originally passed 13-2, included funding to trim trees, improve parks, and repair sidewalks in poor neighborhoods. The mayor told the Los Angeles Times that the proposal was too focused on “business as usual.”

    The American Mind ^ | 12/20/20 | Joel Kotkin
    California exhibits the largest gap between mid-level and upper-level wages in the nation. California’s level of inequality is greater than that of Mexico, and closer to that of Central American countries like Guatemala and Honduras than to what is common in “progressive” developed countries like Canada and Norway. Progressive policies, as applied here in California, have driven this widening gap. The coalition that rules the state—tech oligarchs, public employees, and green non-profits—have backed a draconian tax and regulatory environment that has reduced construction jobs and allowed manufacturing to stagnate, while policymakers have targeted the heavily unionized oil industry for extinction....

    Woodrow Wilson had no qualms about jailing people he disagreed with. His persecution of the Hutterites can attest to that. Campaigning for President of the United States in September 1912, “progressive” icon Woodrow Wilson said something that would gladden the heart of any libertarian: Liberty has never come from the government. Liberty has always come from the subjects of the government. The history of liberty is a history of resistance. The history of liberty is a history of the limitation of governmental power, not the increase of it. That was two months before the election that Wilson won. He garnered...

    Country legend Charley Pride — cited as an early pioneer for Black musicians in country music — died on Saturday in Dallas, Texas, at the age of 86 due to complications from COVID-19, a statement on his website confirmed. With top hits including “Kiss an Angel Good Morning” and “Is Anybody Goin' to San Antone,” Pride became the first Black member of the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2000. He was born in Mississippi in 1934 as the son of a sharecropper. After a brief time serving in the Army and some unsuccessful attempts at becoming a professional baseball...
