  • Biden Administration Makes Skin Color A Litmus Test For Being A U.S. Diplomat

    05/16/2022 10:19:31 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 25 replies ^ | May 15, 2022 | Jeremy Carl
    The State Department has tossed merit out as a criterion for promotion within America’s diplomatic corps and replaced it with wokeness.With a war in Ukraine and challenges to U.S. leadership around the world, there is no shortage of possibilities for skilled diplomats to pursue America’s interests abroad. So it is particularly disturbing that the Biden administration has just tossed merit out as a criteria for promotion within America’s diplomatic corps and replaced it with wokeness. For decades, the State Department has chosen its diplomats through the Foreign Service Officer Test, a grueling gauntlet that begins with a challenging, objective, written...

  • The Resistance Library Podcast: Ronald Reagan

    In this episode of the Resistance Library Podcast, Sam and Dave talk about the 40th president of the United States. Ronald Reagan was arguably the last truly great and transformative American President. His story starts in a small town in Illinois and ends with the fall of Communism. At the time, he was the oldest man to be President, showing Americans that advanced age didn’t mean diminished energy – he united a nation like few have before and none have since.

    With one year in office behind him, analysts have been busy tallying all of the statistics related to Joe Biden’s presidency. One number stands out like a sore thumb and should be of concern to any serious journalist (though you’ll rarely hear any of them complain about it). After twelve months, President Joe Biden has held fewer press conferences than any American president since the early 1980s. In fact, the numbers aren’t even close when compared to other presidents in the modern era. Biden has managed a grand total of nine press conferences, less than the five presidents who preceded...
  • DAZED: Krugman’s New Schtick Is Convincing People ‘2021 Was Pretty Amazing’

    New York Times economist Paul Krugman is once again making a fool of himself by letting everyone know he believes that 2021 was actually a great year for the economy. Really. His new op-ed, headlined, “Don’t Tell Anyone, but 2021 Was Pretty Amazing,” was about as ridiculous as it was amusing. Here’s his new talking point: “[T]here’s a good chance that once time has passed and we’ve had a chance to regain perspective, we’ll consider 2021 to have been a very good year, at least in some ways.” He continued: “In particular, although nobody seemed to notice, it was a...
  • Facebook 'permanently' locks account of conservative children's book publisher

    Fox Business ^ | 1/3/22 | Tyler O'Neil
    Facebook has "permanently disabled" the ads account of a conservative children's book publisher, claiming that Heroes of Liberty – which has published books about Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett, former President Ronald Reagan and author Thomas Sowell – violated the company's rules against "Low Quality or Disruptive Content." Facebook originally locked the ads account on Dec. 23, and after Heroes of Liberty appealed the ruling, the company permanently disabled the account. "The question is: is a children's biography of Ronald Reagan no longer permissible on Facebook? We don’t know. But apparently promoting one may well kill a business," Heroes...
  • The government's real problem with UFOs

    Many view the United States as having the most sophisticated and capable national defense and intelligence apparatus globally. In totality, this is arguably true. However, often not taken into account is that all of America's capabilities rarely, if ever, come together to achieve a unified objective. Instead, you have constant and bitter bureaucratic infighting, with agencies often distrusting each other and operating as their own fiefdoms. Take, for example, Project GUNMAN. In 1978, the NSA discovered a sophisticated radio transmitter inside a false chimney in the U.S. Embassy in Moscow. The NSA told the CIA and State Department that the...
  • How the Left Turns Anyone Leading the Right into Fringe Extremists

    12/06/2021 5:32:39 AM PST · by Kaslin · 13 replies ^ | December 6, 2021 | Rachel Alexander
    The left has mastered many clever tactics to defeat the right in recent years, not based on substantive arguments but rather on tricking people. One is straight out of Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals and the right is falling into the trap. Rule No. 5 states, “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.” It basically consists of using 4th grader insults to coerce people into a herd attack mentality. They mastered it with former President Donald Trump, “orange man bad.” It didn’t used to be that way. Although Rules for Radicals came out in 1972, it didn’t achieve the level of...

    Writing for NBC in October, Ashley Pratte Oates, communications strategist and board member, Republican Women for Progress, accused Trump of “hijacking” the GOP with his continued influence. “While it’s disheartening to see these elected officials lambasted and pushed out of a party they’ve desperately—and bravely—tried to fix, it also should serve as a final wake-up call for leadership: The GOP is no longer the GOP of the Bushes, Ronald Reagan, Mitt Romney and John McCain. It is now the party of Trump,” Pratte Oates said.
  • Reagan's Warning About The Fragility of Freedom Has Always Been Relevant -- But Never More Urgent

    It seems more than apropos to assess the legacy and words of President Ronald Reagan at this juncture in our history; it is an absolute necessity. Reagan not only understood the political reality of the world in front of him, he had a prescience of the political world that might be coming if Americans did not demonstrate the same resolve that won the revolution. The insouciance of the Biden administration is unrelenting as it watches inflation rise, spends trillions on phony infrastructure bills and blithely observes the southern border evaporate. What would Reagan have done? And what would Reagan have...

    Much has been made of the similarities between what we’ve witnessed in Kabul, Afghanistan and the fall of Saigon in 1975. These comparisons are entirely appropriate, to be sure. Like the South Vietnamese in 1975, any Afghans who placed their trust in the ally-ship and promises of the United States very likely await torture and death at the hands of the murderous scourge which had been held at bay by American resolve and military might. It is only the absolute certainty of such a horrific fate that led South Vietnamese would-be refugees to cling to boats and helicopters as the...
  • China: The Most Evil of Evil Empires

    In a 1983 speech before the National Association of Evangelicals, President Ronald Reagan labeled the Soviet Union the “evil empire;” perfectly capturing the moral and political danger presented by that communist regime. Reagan properly cautioned Americans not to “ignore the facts of history and the aggressive impulses” of an enemy that was “the focus of evil in the modern world.” Unfortunately, what was clear to Reagan about the Soviet Union in 1983 appears only as a blur to Joe Biden about China today. If the Soviet Union were the evil empire, then China is surely the evilest empire. The Soviet...

    Writing and reading history is one of the greatest joys of life. Writing about Ronald Reagan and WWII has been singularly pleasurable for me. What was it the philosopher Erasmus said, “When I have a little money, I buy food and clothes. But anything I have left over, I buy books.” Now, we study history for many reasons: for the sheer joy of reading; of knowing more than the next guy, or as the noted teacher George Santayana said, just to learn about not repeating failures - “Those who fail to study history are doomed to repeat it.” Teddy Roosevelt...

    38-year-old King George III ruled the largest empire that planet earth had ever seen. The Declaration of Independence, signed JULY 4, 1776, listed 27 reasons why Americans declared their independence from the King: ... He has made judges dependent on his will alone ... ... He has erected a multitude of new offices, and sent hither swarms of officers to harass our people and eat out their substance. ... He has kept among us, in times of peace, standing armies ... ... To subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution ... ... For quartering large bodies of armed...

    The way to solve America's issues and connect with Republican voters is not to parrot libertarian talking points that enable leftist power.I am always wary of those who purport to speak for their respective generation, and a recent New York Post op-ed by a self-espoused libertarian student at New York University put on full display exactly what the Republican Party must abandon in the years ahead. In close to 700 words, writer Rikki Schlott calls for the GOP to “compromise on social and environmental issues and stand up to leftist extremism,” ignoring that these two are different sides of the...

    Paul Ryan, the last Republican Speaker of the House of Representatives, gave a talk at the Reagan Library in violation of Ronald W. Reagan's Eleventh Commandment: "Thou shalt not speak ill of a fellow Republican." Indeed, it was, as they say in basketball, a flagrant foul that Ryan committed.At the beginning of his talk, Ryan said the following: Even for our good showing in the House 2020 left Republicans powerless in Washington. Even worse, it was horrifying to… to see a presidency come to such a dishonorable and disgraceful end....He went on to say that the conservative cause will be...
