  • ‘Rural values’ can tilt voters Republican – even for some minorities

    Why we wrote this——Democrats might assume that a minority people in North Carolina’s poorest county would vote with them. But as one observer puts it, “This is not about Native American identity. This is about rural Indian values.” Pembroke, N.C. — The Lumbee Indians of Robeson County about broke Dan McCready’s heart. The former Marine and clean-energy investor spent 27 months wooing the Lumbee Tribe in rural North Carolina, in a bid to turn the state’s 9th Congressional District Democratic for the first time since 1963. They were so close. Mr. McCready’s Carolina-blue signs were all over the suburbs of...
  • The South Is a Pro-Life Stronghold. It has seceded from the culture of death

    The cycles of history can be very interesting indeed. The American South is the home of America’s original sin. It is the one region of this nation that turned its back on the principles of the Founding and did so for decade after decade — imposing first the tyranny of slavery, then the oppression of Jim Crow. Even after the Civil War, the South was a virtual nation-within-a-nation, a world apart where only white citizens could fully enjoy the blessings of liberty. And, make no mistake, the South paid for its sins. The Civil War decimated its male population and...

    I always liked the idea of Texas—a massive, arrogant, sun-scorched, red-blooded homeland for impenitent cattle rustlers who provided a cultural counterpoint to the sniffly, snobby classes of the Eastern seaboard. Back when America was all about expansion rather than retreat, Texas was far more American than anything you could scrape up from either coastline.
  • 5 Myths About the State and Local Tax Deduction’s Cap

    06/25/2019 2:21:35 PM PDT · by Tolerance Sucks Rocks · 16 replies
    Ever since the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act passed in late 2017, Democrats and a few Republicans have decried how the law’s $10,000 cap of the state and local tax deduction harms schools, local communities, home values, first responders, and middle-class families. Fast forward almost two years later and these false claims are not going away. House Democrats recently announced a hearing scheduled for Tuesday where many of the common myths are likely to be repeated. Here are a few of the most common misconceptions. Myth #1: The Cap Hurts Middle-Class Taxpayers Before the 2017 tax cut capped the state...
  • Pew: Illegal Alien Population Booms in Red States Ahead of 2020 Election

    The illegal alien population has boomed in at least three red states won by President Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election, new analysis reveals. Pew Research Center analysis finds that in Louisiana, North Dakota, and South Dakota — three states that went overwhelmingly for Trump over failed Democrat candidate Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election — the illegal alien population has increased over the last ten years. Between 2007 and 2017, Louisiana — which went nearly 60 percent for Trump in the 2016 election — has an illegal alien population that has grown by 15,000. In North Dakota, where...
  • Real America Sits at One End of the Potomac -- and at the Other

    GORMANIA, W.Va. -- Life here along the North Branch of the Potomac River is very different than life 162 miles downriver. There is raw natural beauty that takes your breath away. Under your feet flows the Potomac, above you the Allegheny Plateau, and the ascent toward Mt. Storm beckons with forests filled with red spruce, balsam fir and mountain ash. Hawks and eagles float above you. Snakes, deer, squirrels and bears walk or slither past you. Then there's the tragic beauty in town. Along U.S. Route 50, buildings that once held banks and stores and homes stand as memorials of...

    Amazon isn’t the only one fed up with New York’s ridiculous tax rates. Plenty of companies are packing their bags and looking for office space in states with more business-friendly policies. There’s just one problem: A lot of these top firms can’t stand the conservative laws that make their new homes so successful. AllianceBernstein, another firm fleeing the Empire State’s stifling economy, just announced that it’s relocating its $70 million headquarters to Nashville. But before it moves, the CEO is warning Tennessee: It’s not a fan of religious liberty. And AllianceBernstein is proving it by fighting the state’s faith-based adoption...

    • 2016 Presidential Electoral Results - Hillary 232, Trump 306 • Hillary Clinton won the popular vote The next national election will be contentious. Given that Democrats have literally lost their minds over the last one, they plan on never losing another national election. There is no doubt that Democrats, especially new leaders coming on the scene, want a secular socialist government with all vestiges of Judeo-Christianity removed. It competes with their progressive socialist theology. They will not abide with another Republican win. This is how they think they will do it.

    While most attention has been focused on immigrants trying to enter the United States over America’s southern border, there is legal migration taking place that has been largely ignored, though it may have at least as much economic and political impact as the other. People are moving out of high-tax states to Florida and other states with lower tax burdens. Florida’s new governor, Ron DeSantis, mentioned the movement in a speech to the Club for Growth, which describes itself as “a national network of over 250,000 pro-growth, limited government Americans who share in the belief that prosperity and opportunity come...
  • Incredible New Study Reveals Conservatives Dominate Much More of America Than Most People Think

    Recent polling has some good news for the conservative cause: More Americans identify as conservative than as liberal. Gallup’s 2018 tracking polls in all 50 U.S. states asked respondents to self-identify as either liberal, conservative or moderate. The aggregated results, which were released Friday, show that more respondents identified as liberal than as conservative in only six states. Gallup previously reported that on a national level, conservatives outnumbered liberals 35 percent to 26 percent in 2018. The states where the number of self-identified liberal residents exceeded the number of conservatives were Hawaii, New Hampshire, New York, Massachusetts, Vermont and Washington....

    You could be forgiven if you thought that the media onslaught against conservatives the last few years would have an effect on how most of the country views the right. That media campaign - directed against Donald Trump but also against conservatives - has been unprecedented in its scope and intensity. Conservatives are routinely portrayed as racist, sexist, homophobic, anti-Muslim, and paranoid xenophobes.  But Gallup found some remarkable conservative strength all across the country. Their latest survey shows that liberals outnumber conservatives in only 6 states and that there are 25 states where conservatives are polling above their national average....

    Conservatives struggling to understand why Democrats rejected POTUS Donald Trump’s compromise proposal on immigration last week when it contained several things they have either wanted or have supported for years need to come to grips with the fact that the rejection isn’t about 2020 or the politics of ‘now’ or even “compromise.” It’s about the long-held Democratic goal of obtaining veto-proof, election-proof majorities in the House, the Senate, and the presidency for the foreseeable future. On his progam Monday, talk giant Rush Limbaugh hit on this theme as he tried to break down and explain to listeners the details of,...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump is in the final stretch of a 44-city blitz for the midterm elections, but the America he’s glimpsed from the airport arrivals and his armored limousine is hardly a reflection of the nation as a whole.The president has mostly traveled to counties that are whiter, less educated and have lower incomes than the rest of the United States, according to Census Bureau data. It’s a sign that he is seeking to galvanize the same group of voters that helped carry him to victory in 2016. Trump has largely eschewed the big metropolises for smaller...

    Senate Democrats up for reelection this year in deep-red states face a nightmare decision on how to handle Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. Vulnerable Democrats are hoping Republicans will force him to withdraw his nomination, allowing them to avoid politically divisive votes. The Democrats in the toughest position are Sens. Heidi Heitkamp (N.D.), Joe Donnelly (Ind.) and Joe Manchin (W.Va.). Heitkamp and Manchin are undecided, and both are seeking another six-year term in states that Trump won by double digits in 2016. Donnelly is in much the same boat but said on Friday that he would vote ‘no’ on Kavanaugh....

    Voters in most Southern states are expected to back Republican candidates in the upcoming midterms, according to a new NBC News/SurveyMonkey online poll. The poll found that voters in most Southern states are more likely to support a Republican for Congress than the nation as a whole, with 48 percent of Southerners saying they would vote for a GOP candidate if the midterms were held today compared to 43 percent that would back Democrats. Forty-nine percent of voters nationally would vote for a Democratic candidate if the elections were held right now while 42 percent would vote for a Republican,...

    For liberal Democrats and conservative Republicans, it’s an easy choice regarding the Supreme Court nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh. Both sides have made up their minds weeks before these hearings, which have devolved into total clown shows, started this week. With former Arizona Sen. Jon Kyl being tapped to serve the remainder of the late John McCain’s term, we have a decisive vote locked up. Kyl is probably going to vote for Kavanaugh. I’m betting McCain would have a “yea” vote as well if he were healthy. The point is the game is over. We have won. The votes are...

August 9, 2018 Daniel Greenfield Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is an investigative journalist and writer focusing on the radical left and Islamic terrorism. "Abdul El-Sayed’s Campaign Is a Test for Leftism in the Midwest," New York Magazine declared. That was on Sunday. On Monday, ThinkProgress called El-Sayed’s campaign one to prove “Democratic socialism can win in the Midwest.” On Tuesday, socialism and leftism failed the Midwest test.
