  • Washington state takes a surprising turn to the right

    Fiscal conservatives are winning in — of all places — the state of Washington. Members of the Democratic-dominated state Legislature have passed three initiatives that are part of a six-part strategy developed by conservatives in that state. Leaders of the conservative group Let’s Go Washington announced late last year that they had collected enough signatures to force six referendum questions on the November 2024 ballot. In the past, some might have argued that conservatives were on life support in the state of Washington. The state has the nation’s longest streak of Democratic governors. The last Republican elected governor was John...
  • The Left-Right Divide Is Not Bridgeable

    Millions of Americans, depressed by the ideological divide in America, harbor a wish that something or someone can bridge this divide. This wish is understandable. But it is fantasy. The divide is unbridgeable. One might as well wish that daily consumption of a hot fudge sundae will lead to weight loss. To cite a few samples: How are we to bridge the gap between those who believe men can become women and women can become men and those who don't believe this? Between those who believe men menstruate and those who believe only women menstruate? How are we to bridge...

    The Western world is experiencing the most dramatic political realignment since the rise of socialism over a century ago. The driving force then was the rise of the working class, created by the Industrial Revolution. Today, it is the shift to an economy dominated by information industries, technology, finance and media. This new economic order, just like that which arose a century ago, is creating a highly disruptive political dynamic and a shift in historic class allegiances. The wealthiest people today are no longer fans of the free market. Instead, they and their businesses are deeply tied to the progressive...
  • How The Euro Right Wins The Youth Vote

    Highly Respected ^ | Jan. 4, 2024 | Scott Greer
    Geert Wilders’s Party for Freedom won big in Dutch parliamentary elections last month. One of the keys to the nationalist’s party success was its large share of the youth vote. Young people in the Anglosphere tend to be more left-wing than their elders. Seeing the reverse in continental Europe always surprises outside observers. The Guardian tried to solve this mystery. It asked young Dutchmen why they voted for the Party for Freedom. The Dutch youth said they did so because it was the one party that addressed their concerns. Other European parties, such as AfD in Germany and National Rally...
  • CS Lewis’ 77-Year-Old ‘Christmas Sermon’ Warns of ‘Post-Christian’ World That Doesn’t Know Right From Wrong

    The world had just emerged from World War II when 20th century author and armchair theologian C.S. Lewis penned what he called “A Christmas Sermon for Pagans,” a message to British readers about the dangers of a world yielded no longer to objective truth but one lost in a sea of relativism. Lewis’ words in December 1946 — which first appeared in the erstwhile Strand Magazine — warned that “post-Christian” thought, a way of thinking that rejects absolute rights and wrongs, leads to nihilism. He wrote, in part: As for the ideologies, the new invented Wrongs and Rights, does no...
  • Bernie Sanders: Israel Doesn’t Have a Right ‘to Kill 12,000 People in Six, Seven Weeks’

    Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) said Monday to CBS News that Israel did not have a right “to kill 12,000 people in six, seven weeks” in response to the October 7 terror attack. Sanders said, “Well, this was how I respond. Look, Israel was attacked in an absolutely horrific way by Hamas, 1,300 innocent people were slaughtered. Israel has a right to defend itself, but what Israel does not have a right to do, in my view, is to kill 12,000 people in six, seven weeks, two-thirds of whom are women and children. That they don’t have right to do, that’s...
  • ECONOMY U.S. GDP grew at a 4.9% annual pace in the third quarter, better than expected

    cnbc ^ | 10/26/23 | Jeff Cox
    POINTS Gross domestic product, a measure of all goods and services produced in the U.S., rose at a 4.9% annualized pace in the third quarter, ahead of the 4.7% estimate. The sharp increase came due to contributions from consumer spending, increased inventories, exports, residential investment and government spending. While the report could give the Fed some impetus to keep policy tight, traders were still pricing in no chance of an interest rate hike when the central bank meets next week.

    The U.S. is committed to the Palestinian people’s right to “self-determination” and “dignity,” President Biden said on Tuesday, weeks after Palestinian terrorist group Hamas murdered an estimated 1,400 people in Israel. “The United States remains committed to the Palestinian people’s right to dignity and to self-determination. The actions of Hamas terrorists don’t take that right away,” Biden said Tuesday morning. It remains unclear what, specifically, prompted that statement.

    On Friday, MSNBC host Joy Reid said on her show “The ReidOut” that she has a “theory” that the right does not want slavery taught in schools because their children will have empathy and not become Republicans. Reid said, “And the thing about it is, it’s a presumption that if you teach white kids about the negative parts of history, they’re going to identify with the bad guys. They’re not going to identify with the abolitionists.”

    On Wednesday’s broadcast of NBC’s “MTP Now,” host Chuck Todd discussed complaints and demands for help from the federal government from Democratic officials in New York and Massachusetts about the influx of migrants in their areas and said that Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) “was right” that Democratic-run cities would be angry at the Biden administration once they had to bear the weight of the migrant influx. While teasing a segment on the “growing humanitarian crisis” in New York City and demands for federal assistance from New York, Todd said, “I guess Greg Abbott was right when he said, once...

    Townhall ^ | 06/03/2023 | Sarah Arnold
    As the Democratic Party becomes more progressive, radical, and insistent on its push for a liberal agenda, young Americans are stepping away and leaning toward the Right. According to data from Nate Cohn with the New York Times, millennials are shifting towards the Republican Party. Liberalism is not what it used to be before the 2000s. Being liberal in today's society does not mean walking around barefoot, selling flowers along the highway, and burning your bra. Instead, it means supporting LGBTQ propaganda and being brainwashed by an 80-year-old president who doesn't remember where he is half the time. The data...

    It was a dream come true—or rather about to come true—when the Halls bought their forever home. It had everything they needed and more: five bedrooms, four bathrooms, a family room, a dining room, a roomy garage, good schools, and a good neighborhood. Sure, a fixer-upper, but they felt up to it. Prentiss Hall, a home improvement contractor, made it his life project, and everybody lent a hand—his wife, Tawanda, and six children, cousins, and friends. “We were really excited,” Tawanda told The Epoch Times. They negotiated the price down to $67,000—a bargain, perhaps, but the home demanded a daunting...

    Gun control activist David Hogg tweeted Sunday that Americans “have no right to a gun,” suggesting that the right to keep and bear arms applies only to members of the militia. Hogg tweeted:You have no right to a gun. You are not a militia. When you’re talking about your second amendment rights you’re talking about a states right to have what is today the national guard. The modern interpretation of 2A is a ridiculous fraud pushed for decades by the gun lobby. — David Hogg ☮️ (@davidhogg111) February 26, 2023 The text of the Second Amendment says, “A well regulated...

    American Greatness ^ | Feb. 3, 2023 | Scott Greer
    America may soon face one of two kinds of left-wing authoritarianism. One is the soft despotism of liberal technocracy. This authoritarianism wouldn’t overthrow the present structures of our society or upend the economy. In fact, it would have the support of the regime’s major institutions. It would seriously curb civil liberties, such as free speech and gun rights, and feel much less democratic. More people would be arrested over memes, but much would remain the same. Political life in America would look more like contemporary Western Europe. The other is a radical populism in the mold of Hugo Chavez, the...

Dr Emanuel, who served in both the Obama and Biden administrations, says there is also a lack of dignity when aging past 75.

    Representative Zoe Lofgren (D-CA) said Monday on MSNBC’s “Deadline” that supporters of former President Jair Bolsonaro rioting in Brazil’s capital was the result of “political right” in America who rioted and entered the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021. Anchor Nicolle Wallace asked, “What did you think when you saw the insurrection in Brazil over the weekend? That these acts in America that you spent 18 months investigating were copycatted by Trump’s international allies in Brazil?”

    (NEXSTAR) – One week after the Thanksgiving holiday, and chances are good that you are sniffling, coughing or feeling a little scratch in your throat. It’s not just you – the country is contending with a “tripledemic” of viruses (not to mention, a whole lot of common cold). As of late November, reported COVID-19 cases in the U.S. were stable, but high. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recorded about 300,000 new cases over the past week, but that number is likely an undercount, as home tests often aren’t reported to public health agencies. Meanwhile, influenza is rising rapidly...
