  • Debt ceiling: Biden admits progressive Democrats might not get on board with deal (usual commie suspects)

    Washington Examiner ^ | 5/29/23 | Ryan King
    resident Joe Biden admitted on Monday he may not be able to win over all members of his party after striking a debt ceiling deal with House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA). Progressive Democrats, including Congressional Progressive Caucus Chairwoman Pramila Jayapal (D-WA), as well as Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Jamaal Bowman (D-NY), and others, have been critical of Biden for working with McCarthy to find a deal. After striking a deal with McCarthy over the weekend, Biden was asked on Monday if the Congressional Progressive Caucus would get on board with the deal. "I don't know," he told a CBS reporter...

    A Philadelphia man canvassing for a progressive organization was fatally shot by a fellow campaign staffer Monday while the two were handing out flyers ahead of the city’s mayoral primary election. Eddie Brokenbough, 46, was struck once in his left armpit by an unidentified 22-year-old staffer around 4 p.m. in the East Germantown neighborhood, police said. Brokenbough was rushed to a nearby hospital but died 15 minutes after he was shot. It is unclear what kicked off the deadly fight, but police believe it stemmed from a prior dispute between the pair, who were both campaigning on behalf of the...
  • Parents beware: AI is pushing radical transgender ideology on children

    ChatGPT encourages 'gender transitions' and 'emancipation' for 15-year-olds with conservative parents. (LifeSiteNews) — The era of Artificial Intelligence (AI) is upon us, and the AI chatbot ChatGPT, released in November 2022, is one of the most-discussed technological developments in decades. AI is advancing so rapidly that many tech experts are calling on the industry to put a moratorium on further development in order to assess where this is heading, including Elon Musk and the “Godfather of AI” Geoffrey Hinton, who recently left Google in order to warn the public about the dangers of AI. If you’re interested in understanding the...
  • San Francisco 'mean girl' progressives BAN lesbian Asian from setting up Democrat club in city because its title contained the word 'family' and for backing recall of woke school board

    San Francisco Democrats have been called 'mean girls' after they banned a lesbian Asian from setting up a liberal club in the city. Cyn Wang, who worked for the Obama Administration, attempted to set up a group called the Westside Family Democratic Club, but was stopped because the title contained the word 'family' and for backing a recall of a woke school board. The Chinese immigrant has long been a Democrat, and on paper looks like the perfect candidate to represent a liberal group. Wang voted for Biden in 2020, labeled herself an intersectional feminist, and denounced the Republican Party...

  • Children Are Not Property The idea that underlies the right-wing campaign for “parents’ rights.” (BARF)

    Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old, he will not depart from it,” the Book of Proverbs says. To certain right-wing Christians, the concept is simple: A child can be broken, or stamped into shape, much like any domesticated animal. Though all parents hope they’ll pass their values onto their children, for some that hope is more of a mandate. My own parents believe that Proverbs is the word of God, and they believed, too, that a righteous upbringing would produce an adult in their image. Who can blame them? The idea...

    An array of progressive campaign groups is teaming up with the Latino Victory Fund to set up a candidate training camp ahead of the 2024 election. The two-day “Path to Victory” program will take place in Arizona, Pennsylvania, Texas and Wisconsin, and it will teach prospective candidates the basics of how to run a successful political campaign. The training will include a cybersecurity component implemented by Google and Defending Digital Campaigns, a nonpartisan nonprofit organization focused on digital security in political campaigns. “The Path to Victory program is an exciting opportunity to meet candidates where they are and build a...

    The Federalist ^ | APRIL 06, 2023 | Jeff Goldstein
    Cultural Marxism is dystopia peddling utopia through grievance narratives and rank emotionalism, the hallmarks of transgenderism. ... In a surreal moment at the Country Music Awards last week, co-host Kelsea Ballerini joined with several drag performers to belt out a campy version of her single, “If You Go Down (I’m Goin’ Down Too),” an anthem taking aim at Tennessee laws denying wrongly named “gender-affirming care” for children. The performance was steeped in queerness, both in the pretend “oppression” of performers literally center stage at a nationally-broadcast awards show and in the academic sense, where drag serves as a kind of...

    Russia’s war was not only made possible by the global fossil fuel addiction; it also helped the largest oil and gas companies reap record profits in 2022. Justice may still be done: a “windfall tax” on this war profit could and should help reconstruct the damage done to Ukraine - if it doesn’t get blocked by oil and gas giant Exxon.The five largest oil and gas companies made bank in 2022, thanks to Russia’s war on Ukraine and the resulting spike in energy prices. Exxon led the pack, with nearly $60 billion in earnings, up over 150% from last year....

    Recent reports attribute the nationwide low reading proficiency for K-12 students, in part, to progressive curricula from teachers colleges. Progressive approaches to teaching reading, one education advocate said, come from a 'desire to ... move away from what had been thought of as the drudgery and pain of institutional style education.' ... Recent reports show that school districts are ditching progressive curricula from teachers colleges and returning to best practices for reading. The nationwide low reading proficiency for K-12 students is attributed, in part, to these curricula. Though Campus Reform has identified teachers colleges as sites of social justice and...

    Jimmy Carter’s post-presidential life outshined the time he spent at the White House and won him the praise of the progressive left — a more dominant part of the Democratic Party 42 years after the end of his presidency. Carter, 98, is a figure beloved by many Democrats in 2023 despite the difficulties of his administration. He’s respected for creating a footprint as a global humanitarian and peacebuilder in a bitterly divided world. To liberals, his imprint on their movement is especially profound. “President Carter promoted progressive issues well before they became mainstream,” said Joseph Geevarghese, executive director of Our...
  • Anthony McRae details only GET worse -> Soros-backed prosecutor DISMISSED felony gun charge

    Earlier today, we wrote about Anthony McRae’s history with weapons charges and were incorrect when we called him a convicted felon … Not because we didn’t do our homework (and not because the newspaper we received the info from didn’t do THEIR homework), but because then George Soros-backed prosecutor Carol Siemon dismissed the felony charge. No, really. He did indeed serve time but on a misdemeanor charge THANKS to Siemon. Anthony McRae, the Michigan State shooter, was charged in June 2019 with illegally carrying a concealed handgun without a permit, but later had those charges dismissed by George Soros-backed prosecutor...

    The Drive ^ | 1/25/23
    If your Hyundai or Kia uses a physical ignition key, it can be stolen with relative ease. As we've reported, a USB cable is all that's necessary to get away with a new car. It's a costly problem for police in cities such as Columbus, Ohio, and Denver. Insurers in these regions and others have now had enough. Insurance giants State Farm and Progressive are now refusing to insure many vehicles sold by the two Korean auto brands in those cities and others now. In a statement to The Drive, Progressive confirmed that it was no longer issuing new insurance...
  • Barr: ‘Radical Progressive Movement’ Is ‘Main Danger to our Democracy’ — Today ‘Makes the McCarthy Era Look Like Child’s Play’

    On Friday’s broadcast of HBO’s “Real Time,” former Attorney General Bill Barr stated that “the main danger to our democracy, frankly, is the sort of radical progressive movement” and that free public discourse is under attack in a way that “on a daily basis makes the McCarthy era look like child’s play.” Barr said, “[W]hen confronted with the question, if Trump is the party’s nominee and he’s running against Biden, who would you vote for? And I say it’s hard for me to see — I just find it hard to believe that I could vote against the Republican nominee...

    On Christmas Eve, 2022, in North Carolina, something happened that had never happened before in living memory. People across the state were alerted by their power company, Duke Energy, that there would be rolling blackouts in the aftermath of a severe (but “not exceedingly rare”) winter wind storm. At least 12 other states received similar and previously unheard-of warnings. Before, rolling blackouts were a California problem, then they also became a Texas problem. Blackouts are spreading faster than even Imperial College London modelers would find believable. Duke was still warning North Carolina customers of potential blackouts two days later. At...

    The nudist “ex-life partner” of the man who assaulted Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s husband on Friday has apologized to the speaker and her family for her former beau’s behavior. Speaking with Bay Area station KGO via phone this weekend, Oxane “Gypsy” Taub expressed great remorse over suspect David DePape’s actions, especially given as she happens to be a huge Pelosi fan. And indeed, to hear Taub tell it, it sounds like DePape at one point used to be a fan as well. “Well when I met him, he was only 20 years old, and he didn’t have any experience in politics,...

    Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) on Wednesday permitted the servicemembers to have facial tattoos, dye their hair, allowed women to keep long nails and wear skirts in an attempt to make military service more inclusive. In a statement, Ottawa's Department of National Defence said that these new military dress and personal grooming regulations were aimed "to support respect, diversity and inclusiveness" and to encourage the youth to join the armed forces. "A uniform does not define discipline or operational effectiveness, just as the colour or length of your hair does not define your dedication," Gen. Eyre said.

    In a state where independent voters make up a plurality of the electorate, Colorado Democratic senator Michael Bennet has focused his reelection campaign on appealing to centrist voters. In private, however, he’s reminding left-wing donors at a drag queen-themed fundraiser that he has a "more progressive" record than socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (D., Vt.). "When I say I have a progressive track record, I mean it, I’m more progressive than Bernie Sanders," Bennet said at an Oct. 9 fundraiser featuring Jewish drag queen Laura Menorah. "In terms of our, you know, our tax code because of the profound income inequality...

    Muslim American Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) was slammed by House Democrats on Wednesday for claiming that supporting “Israel’s apartheid government” is incompatible with “progressive values.” “I want you all to know that among progressives, it’s become clear that you cannot claim to hold progressive values, yet back Israel’s apartheid government, and we will continue to push back and not accept that you are progressive except for Palestine,” Tlaib said during an online forum organized by “American Muslims for Palestine” and “Americans for Justice in Palestine Action.”
