  • Conservatives Have Lots of Reasons to Be Thankful This Thanksgiving

    11/29/2020 4:52:02 AM PST · by Kaslin · 11 replies ^ | November 29, 2020 | Wayne Allyn Root
    I've been a positive thinker my whole life. I'm a big believer in always seeing the glass as half full. It's the only way to live. Sure, there are lots of crazy and bad things happening right now. I'll address them after the holiday is over. But for now, I want to make you smile. I want to make you see your glass as half full this Thanksgiving weekend. We could focus on the bad. We all know the election was stolen. A new poll by CNBC/Change Research shows only 3% of President Donald Trump's voters see Joe Biden as...

    “I didn’t leave the Democratic Party,” Ronald Reagan famously said, “the Democratic Party left me.” The Republican coalition that won 49-state landslides in 1972 and again in 1984 was as much a reflection of the Democrats as it was of Richard Nixon’s and Reagan’s GOP. In the 1960s, the hard left took over the Democratic Party...and ran it into the ground. They mocked Americans’ commitment to defeating communism in the Cold War while romanticizing socialist tyrants. They embraced draft dodgers and spat on American soldiers returning home from war. They supported violent rioters over the police and National Guardsman trying...

    Why the hell, indeed!? And stop being the toast of the Upper West Side and the Hamptons? Imperil domestic tranquility with Democrat wife and co-host Mika Brzezinski? Maybe even get "canceled" by a liberal establishment baying for Republican political blood? Former GOP congressman Joe Scarborough formally quit the Republican party in 2017, two months after President Trump took office. On today's Morning Joe, Scarborough said he's often asked if he will now become a Republican again. Responded Scarborough, "why the hell" would I?Get the rest of the story and view the video here.
  • 5 Reasons Conservatives Should Have Hope For The Future

    We might be in an Obi-Wan Kenobi moment, wherein striking Trump down will make his movement more powerful than anyone can possibly imagine. If Joe Biden walks away with a presidential victory, conservatives will have many reasons to despair. This would portend some terrifying realities about propaganda and the manipulation of public opinion, the acceptance of potential fraud, and the willingness to accept the curtailment of basic liberties. But it need not. In fact, conservatives have reason to be quite hopeful. We might be in an Obi-Wan Kenobi moment, wherein striking Trump down will make his movement more powerful than...
  • Memo To The Lincoln Project: Thanks So Much For Helping Republicans Win

    Republicans should hope Democrats hire the Lincoln Project every election cycle. The insufferable grifters at the Lincoln Project have been doing their darndest throughout this election cycle to get Democrats elected, and while the results of the presidential election aren’t in yet, the results of the Lincoln Project’s efforts are: They failed. Miserably. These Never Trump former Republicans had one job: Get Trump out of the White House and beat all close-race Republicans seeking reelection to the Senate. Instead, so far 6 million more people have voted for Trump in 2020 than voted for him in 2016. Trump garnered 63...

    Looks like S.E. Cupp got confused—she was apparently thinking of Jeffrey Toobin... In perhaps the grossest metaphor of this election season, smutty CNN commentator and Never Trumper Sarah Elizabeth Cupp said on CNN's New Day this morning: "Trump wore the Republican party like a rented tuxedo to get through the election . . . That tuxedo is in the corner, it’s crumpled up, it’s got cigarette-butt stains, and bodily fluids on it."Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    Even if Trump loses, he'll remain the most popular Republican in the country—and the leading candidate for the 2024 GOP nomination. Yesterday, President Trump held five rallies in five different states, barnstorming through Michigan, Iowa, North Carolina, Georgia, and Florida. On Saturday, he did four rallies in Pennsylvania alone, including one that drew 57,000 people to the small town of Butler about 30 miles north of Pittsburgh.All Trump rallies are celebratory affairs, but these seemed even more so. Trump himself was in a jaunty mood, doing a little dance to “Y.M.C.A.” on a freezing stage in Michigan, laughing along...

    Party loyalty runs so deep -- and is connected to so many past battles -- voters struggle with an identity crisis when confronted with the reality that the Democratic Party has long left Mass-attending Catholic workers behind. EASTERN PENNSYLVANIA — Religion runs deep in eastern Pennsylvania. Through mountains and valleys, in once-thriving mining and factory towns, Catholic steeples dot low skylines. In smoky pool halls, Monday afternoon drinkers would rather talk about the Knights of Columbus than national politics. Man for man, they’re lifelong Democrats — or once thought so. It’s common for American families to transmit political values from...
  • There’s No Going Back To ‘Normal’ After Trump. The Republican Party Is Changed Forever

    Republicans who don’t like Trump want to go back to 'normal,' but the old GOP is dead. Trump made a new party, and that is the party of the future. Donald Trump is not a Republican. He never was before, and he is not one now. As the nation speeds toward Nov. 3, members of the GOP have been all over the board with predictions about the outcome, but some prominent Republicans have been consistently negative about Trump’s prospects and even hopeful for his defeat. Peggy Noonan penned an archetypal anti-Trump article this month, titled “Biden, Pence and the Wish...
  • Trump Supporters in Puerto Rico Hold Caravan

    (Translation) San Juan, Oct. 18 (EFE).- Supporters of U.S. President Donald Trump in Puerto Rico held this Sunday a caravan throughout [the capital] San Juan to show their endorsement for a second term, despite the [island's] residents being unable to vote in [the] November 3 [presidential] election while being U.S. citizens. Since July 25, 1952, Puerto Rico defines itself as a U.S. Commonwealth, a status that confers some autonomy thanks to its own constitution but leaves under Washington's control certain matters such as borders, defense, diplomatic relations, or currency. Puerto Ricans [in the island] cannot vote for President because, according...

    Rep. Bruce Westerman (R-AR) stands out in Congress as the lone registered forester. The third-term congressman representing Arkansas’ 4th Congressional District has emerged as a leading conservative voice on conservation issues. And for good reason. He recently told me his thoughts on forest management, why he supports market-based conservation, why conservatism isn’t at odds with conservation, and more. Forestry: A CallingCongressman Westerman said his love of the Great Outdoors greatly influenced his decision to pursue a career in natural resources. After graduating from the University of Arkansas with an engineering degree, he obtained a Master of Forestry from Yale University in a program established with...
  • Former Meteorologist Aims to Put NM Senate Race on America’s Radar

    According to a recent Albuquerque Journal poll, the U.S. Senate race in New Mexico could be one to watch. This is the open seat being vacated by retiring Senator Tom Udall (D-NM). Ben Ray Luján, a Democrat representing the 3rd Congressional District, currently edges his Republican opponent, former KRQE-TV meteorologist, Mark Ronchetti, 49 to 40 percent. Brian Sanderoff of Research & Polling Inc., the company conducting the poll, warned, “Ben Ray Luján has a comfortable lead, but he’s not at the 50% mark that helps candidates sleep better at night.” Ronchetti bested two rivals in the June 5th Republican primary to advance to...
  • Phyllis Schlafly Shaped the Republican Party Platform

    09/05/2020 7:46:04 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 3 replies ^ | September 5, 2020 | Rebekah Gantner
    Phyllis Schlafly, conservative icon and my late boss, passed away four years ago today at the age of 92. She was an unwavering voice for the pro-family movement, and her life’s work and legacy live on. Phyllis volunteered in American politics for 70 years, influencing many different political and cultural issues. From military superiority and national sovereignty to education and pro-life issues, she articulately shaped conservative policy. Phyllis is perhaps most famous for leading the decade-long fight to defeat the so-called Equal Rights Amendment which she saw as a threat to all women. Her influence didn’t stop there. She also...
  • Elections Are Important, But We Can't Lose Our Souls

    Elections, even in non-pandemic years, can bring out some of the best and the worst of America. Both parties, in their convention productions, were a mix of both. The aspirational, inspirational moments are the best -- though, of course, may promise too much about what electing one ticket to the White House could possibly do. At the same time, they are important reminders that policy isn't mere ideological adherence: It affects human lives. Family lives. It's important, noble work. But in campaign season, it can become harder to remember that politics isn't everything. We don't get our meaning from politics,...

    HOBART — Mayor Brian Snedecor has joined the Republican Party. Surrounded by family, elected officials and supporters, Snedecor became emotional as he made the announcement Wednesday at Festival Park. “I must be true to my God, my family, myself and those that have supported and believed in me,” Snedecor said. “So today I am formally announcing that I am leaving the Democratic Party and that I am joining the Republican party.” He said he’s become increasingly concerned during the last several months as the national Democratic platform has moved “more and more to the left.” “The efforts of the progressive...

    (Video at Source)The lead sentence in an article in The New York Times on Tuesday was a bizarre, if fitting, encapsulation of the state of American politics today: "Conspiracy theorists won a major victory on Tuesday...."In some ways, it's as if the inmates are now running the asylum. Trump effectively turned the GOP into a padded-cell madhouse where up could be down, left could be right and blue could be green...if he decided so. And now the fringiest adherents have swiped the keys from the few remaining guards that were hoping to keep the place in order. That Trump has...
  • Scarborough Warns Republicans: Oust Trump or Face 'Ruin'

    Does anyone believe Joe Scarborough has the best interests of the Republican party at heart? This is a guy who quit the party in 2017. And while he claims to still be a "conservative," how often do you hear him criticize liberal policies or politicians? Just this morning, he was lauding Barack Obama's partisan attack in the guise of a "eulogy" at the John Lewis funeral as "extraordinarily appropriate and moving." So Scarborough's advice to Republicans should be taken with a grain of salt the size of Mt. Rushmore. But for those who might conceivably care what he had to...

    The thirst among Republican voters isn't even for policy. It's for seeing the politicians they elected join the fray. I’ve been hammering away at conservatives and Republicans for failing to defend the symbols of national pride the woke leftist mob has been tearing at in recent weeks. Yesterday on the “Brian Kilmeade Show,” I admitted to letting my anger get the best of me a bit. Brian said I was speaking not as a publisher but as an American — and that’s fair. But part of my frustration is that this is such an obvious challenge that anti-American leftists and...

    Despite their roots in reality, there is no doubt that these crises -- and the White House and Senate's attempts to tackle them -- would be reported differently if Hillary Clinton were president. It took more than five years, but the corporate media finally have the tools and strategy to successfully defeat President Donald Trump.The corporate media have these, mind you, despite the Democratic Party, whose foibles, stumbles, and misfires over those same five years have only complicated efforts, kicking off with a disastrous 2016 defeat and eventually culminating in a near-invisible and increasingly senile presidential candidate stumbling through a...
  • Meet the Warrior-Scholar Poised to Challenge Mark Warner This Fall

    Should Senator Mark Warner (D-VA) worry about his seat come November?  In 2014, he barely cruised to re-election by under a percentage point against Republican challenger Ed Gillespie—a race that stunned political observers everywhere. Now, the self-described “radical centrist” and senior Virginia senator is banking on his political transformation to secure a third term. Warner’s seat is listed as “Solid Democratic” by Cook Political Report and “Safe Democratic” by Larry Sabato’s Crystal Ball. But he must answer for voting 84 percent of the time with Minority Leader Senator Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) and why he, previously the wealthiest U.S. Senator, believes capitalism doesn’t work anymore.  Warner, however, does...
