  • Statues Falling: The Cultural Revolution and How to Win the Counterrevolution

    A cultural revolution is intensifying. The stakes are high. In the balance is the very nature of right and wrong; what is normal, moral, and socially acceptable.The right isn’t even playing checkers to the left’s three-dimensional chess.The right is playing tiddlywinks. Is it game over for America the beautiful?What's up? The late Antonio Gramsci devised the cultural revolution. Gramsci was a true antifascist. And he wrote the playbook now being appropriated by totalitarian cultural revolutionaries.Gramsci, a victim of the Italian fascists, understood that the Communists of his day were too politically weak to take over most governments. But they could...

    I laughed when I saw The Washington Post headline: "Minneapolis had progressive policies, but its economy still left black families behind." The media are so clueless. Instead of "but," the headline should have said, "therefore," or "so, obviously." Of course, progressive policies failed! They almost always do. "If you wanted a poster child for the progressive movement, it would be Minneapolis," says Republican Minnesota Senate candidate Jason Lewis in my new video. "This is the same city council that voted to abolish the police department." The council, which has no Republicans, spends taxpayer money on most every progressive idea. They...
  • Pelosi ‘Stimulus’ Bill Imposes Nationwide ‘Ballot Harvesting’ Without ‘Any Limit’

    “Ballot harvesting” was legalized in California in 2016, and first used in the 2018 midterm elections. It allows anyone to drop off someone else’s mail-in ballot at a polling station. There is no process for vetting or verifying those delivering the ballots — no background checks or identification requirements. Democrats dropped hundreds of thousands of ballots off at polling stations in 2018, helping Democrats as they flipped seven Republican seats. The practice is illegal in most other states, largely because it is susceptible to fraud and intimidation. Republicans were caught flat-footed in 2018; they have experimented with the tactic in...

    The Progressive believes in precisely two things: his own magnificence and the constructive power of brute force. In combination, they lead him naturally from the role of pestiferous busybody to brutal dictator. Where the productive man dreams of the things he might create if only left alone by his fellows, the Progressive dreams of the world he could create if only the lives and property of his fellows were at his disposal. The roots of his pathology lie in that oldest and most destructive of all human vices, the desire for the power to rule over other men. As naked...

    Townhall.com ^ | March 11, 2020 | John Stossel
    Freelance jobs are "feudalism," says California Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez. She persuaded California's legislature to pass a new law reclassifying freelance workers as employees. That means many people who hire them must now give them benefits like overtime, unemployment insurance, etc. Politicians said it would help freelancers a lot. Of course, much of the media agreed. Vox called it "a victory for workers everywhere"! Sigh. Young reporters just don't understand that stifling economic freedom always creates nasty side effects. Actually, more understand now, because they got a very personal lesson. Once the bill passed, Vox media cut hundreds of freelance writing...

    Sen. Bernie Sanders may be on the cusp of both capturing the Democratic nomination and transforming his party as dramatically as President Donald Trump captured and remade the Republican Party. After his sweep of the Nevada caucuses, following popular vote victories in Iowa and New Hampshire, Sanders has the enthusiasm and the momentum, as the crucial battles loom in South Carolina on Saturday and Super Tuesday on March 3. The next eight days could decide it all. And what is between now and next Tuesday that might interrupt Sanders' triumphal march to the nomination in Milwaukee? One possible pitfall is...
  • 'He Called Me a House Negro': Pro-Trump Black Man Confronted at Anti-ICE Rally

    western journal ^ | 9/5/19 | Randy DeSoto
    An African-American man said a protester at an anti-ICE rally in New York City referred to him as a “house negro” because of his support for President Donald Trump. Video captured an exchange between the man, who was holding a “Trump 2020” sign, and protesters at Grand Central Terminal last week against the president’s immigration policies and the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency. Signs by the protesters read, “Close The Camps” and “Abolish ICE.” One black woman confronted the pro-Trump man, apparently trying to shame him for siding with the commander-in-chief. “It’s not about color, it’s about policy!” he countered...

    Colorado Gov. Jared Polis on Wednesday signed an executive order establishing a new office that his administration says will research the state’s “rapidly changing economy and workforce.” The office, called the Office of Future of Work, will be part of the Department of Labor and Employment (CDLE), and will have to report annually to Polis with policy recommendations. ... Details on what the new office will cost taxpayers were not released. Sage Naumann, spokesman for Colorado Senate GOP, mocked the office on Twitter, saying it’s the third new office created this year. “The Democrats’ insistence on creating a new layer...

    ThinkProgress, a top progressive website operated by the liberal think tank, Center for American Progress, is shutting down on Friday after a 15-year run. The decision was made after the site was unable to find a buyer. The Center for American Progress (CAP) has tried to sell off the website after operating for years in the red, according to The Daily Beast. “Given that we could find no new publisher, we have no other real option but to fold the ThinkProgress website back into CAP’s broader online presence with a focus on analysis of policy, politics, and news events through...

    Separately, arrogance and ignorance are some of humanity’s worst traits. Together, when coupled with power, they achieve “weapon-grade stupid” status. This is the marinade of the “gang of four,” the “progressive” Congresswomen – Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ayanna Pressley, Rashida Tlaib, and Ilhan Omar –  who I’d accuse of having exponentially more social media followers than accomplishments, but it’s impossible to multiply by zero. This week we witnessed why those two traits together are such a problem for Democrats, and it was hilarious.Individually, the Gang of Four have strung together an uninterrupted string of gaffes, stupid statements, and racist comments that would...

    My Grandpa and I used to sing a chucklesome tune. He would start off saying, "Hey Joe, what do ya know?" to which I would reply, "I don't know nothin', tell me somethin'."  Neither of us could sing very well, but we both found the jingle humorous. That little ditty also happens to describe what will have to be the cornerstone of former Vice President Joe Biden's 2020 presidential campaign. In order for "Diamond Joe" to win in this far-left, progressive field of candidates, Joe will have to pretend that he didn't "know nothin'" about a variety of issues, behaviors,...

    The Democratic Party has lots of radical new ideas, and lots of radical presidential candidates and politicos. But the common hatred of President Donald Trump has united otherwise quite disparate Democratic leaders such as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.); former Vice President Joe Biden; Sens. Kamala Harris (D-Calif), Cory Booker (D-N.J.) and Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.); and Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) and Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.). These diverse progressive politicians all shared faith in special counsel Robert Mueller and his "dream team." They believed over the last two years that the Mueller investigation was slowly grinding down Trump. T-shirts...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden is the latest Democratic Party candidate for president to make a very important point – white men and our culture are the worst. The whole field has, in one way or another, said pretty much the same thing. And you know what? They’re right, we’re awful. Especially those of us who are straight. It’s time to reject white male culture! When you think about it, what have we ever done for humanity anyway? Michael Avenatti is one of us, so clearly not much. Well, not much if you don’t count the concept of liberty, democracy,...

    Liberal ideology is rife with inconsistencies, but none is greater than how its supposedly animating motivation -- human compassion -- is contradicted by its devaluation of human life. Liberals have long claimed superior compassion and demonized conservatives as being uncaring. This has always been untrue while superficially appearing to be true, and liberals have evangelized countless young minds with this seductive canard. It's difficult to convince embryonic liberal activists that individual liberals may be compassionate but their governing ideology and the inevitable consequences of their policies are not. It's also difficult to make them see that conservatives are compassionate and...

    FULL TITLE: Nolte: 14 Media Outlets Spread Hoax About Trump Calling for Violence During Breitbart News Interview The establishment media are deliberately spreading fake news about President Trump, saying he called for violence during his interview with Breitbart News. Outside of the usual-usual fake news to damage Trump and to distract from their failing Russia Collusion Hoax, the media’s propaganda effort here is to make Trump pay a political price for daring to sit down with an alternative news outlet like Breitbart News and to warn other politicians not to violate the rules about who is “supposed” to be allowed...

    As New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez continues to galvanize the left (and frustrate the right), what’s driving her unique appeal has become an increasingly compelling question. Is it her identity or her substantive politics? Or both? Ocasio-Cortez's embrace of democratic socialism has been emphasized by the right, which seeks to paint her as out of touch with mainstream American values. But arguably, it's her progressive ideals that provide the basis for a human-centered politics that connect with a majority of Americans. The Intercept's Senior Politics Editor Briahna Gray will talk to Ocasio-Cortez about identity, the race/class divide, and how these...

    Turns out liberals are the real authoritarians. A political-science journal that published an oft-cited study claiming conservatives were more likely to show traits associated with “psychoticism” now says it got it wrong. Very wrong. The American Journal of Political Science published a correction this year saying that the 2012 paper has “an error” — and that liberal political beliefs, not conservative ones, are actually linked to psychoticism. “The interpretation of the coding of the political attitude items in the descriptive and preliminary analyses portion of the manuscript was exactly reversed,” the journal said in the startling correction.

    Turning Point USA’s Charlie Kirk and Candace Owens kicked off their first 2019 Campus Clash event at Utah Valley University on Monday. The duo was greeted by protesters who draped a banner over a balcony that read, “End White Supremacy,” an odd choice of message, given that Owens is black. “People said, when we first started Turning Point USA, that this sort of organizing is not possible,” said Kirk to an room filled with conservative students on Monday night, “My best advice to you is that it absolutely is possible, and I’ll go a step further, it’s necessary.” “If you...

    As homeschooling rapidly grows, so too are state-level efforts to "oversee" families. Oregon, Washington state, and even Iowa are trailblazing another assault on constitutionally protected individual rights. The state legislature in Oregon is currently mulling over a bill that “directs Oregon Health Authority to study home visiting by licensed health care providers.” The bill contends that home visits are “necessary for the immediate preservation of the public peace, health and safety.” There’s a similar scheme being conjured up in Washington. In January, Gov. Jay Inslee (now a 2020 Democrat presidential contender) declared: “My budget would also offer universal home visits....
