  • Traitor Joe’s-Just when you thought the Dems couldn’t stoop any lower

    Frontpagemagazine ^ | May 20, 2024 | Alan Joseph Bauer
    Just as 9/11 and the space shuttle disasters showed failures at the relevant agencies, the 10/7 pogrom has exposed a failure of leadership at all levels of government and society.Derek Hunter often writes to the effect that when one thinks that Democrats could not go any lower, they whip out their shovels and keep digging deeper and deeper. I was reminded of his insight when I saw a headline this morning. It’s not enough that the US chose not to send ammunition to Israel during a hot war. It was still not enough to threaten not to send certain critical...
  • Former world leader praises Ronald Reagan's example on Gipper's birthday: 'Values worth living for'

    Former Polish President Lech Wałęsa hailed his friendship with Ronald Reagan during their respective administrations, claiming that Poland owes Reagan "our freedom." "You may consider this statement extremely lofty, yet it does not sound lofty to those who regained liberty after half a century," Wałęsa, 80, told Fox News Digital on the anniversary of Reagan’s birth. "Some politicians defend values not because they find it profitable but because those politicians are convinced that there are certain values that are worth living for, and that there are values that are worth giving life for," Wałęsa said. "Only such politicians are really...
  • Should Christians take their money out of banks that don't share their values?

    Nearly a third of Christians in the U.S. have considered switching banks in the last year due to conflicts with their values and other factors, according to a new survey.The research conducted by the faith-based Christian Community Credit Union (CCCU) in San Dimas, California, found as Christians are being increasingly discriminated against by major banks, more are choosing to bank with companies that reflect their most deeply-held beliefs and values.In its survey of more than 1,300 professed Christians, over 30% of respondents said they thought about taking their banking business elsewhere in the past year in response to several reports...

    Many leading Republicans and conservatives want someone other than Donald Trump to run for President in 2024. But this judgment requires an assessment of Trump’s vices and virtues in the context of our current political and cultural circumstances, as well as an assessment of other prospective Republican presidential candidates. Tom Klingenstein, Chairman of the Claremont Institute, explains Trump's Virtues.
  • Disney Doesn’t Just Hate Conservatives Alone — It Hates Its Fans Too

    On September 5, our Brandon Morse wrote about Disney’s rapidly disintegrating reputation in the public eye in general and the conservative eye in particular. He noted how the company’s actions firmly indicate it doesn’t care and is unlikely to stop its downward slide anytime soon, if ever. While I agree with many of his points, one not covered warrants mention. You see, Disney doesn’t hate solely conservatives and conservative values. It hates its most loyal customers as well. Two examples. The first involves Disney’s theme parks, which to date have escaped the dramatic business fall-off the company’s woke movies and...
  • How American Institutions Went From Trust to Bust

    WSJ ^ | Sept. 8, 2023 | Gerard Baker
    At the heart of America’s political and cultural turmoil is a crisis of trust. In the space of a generation, the people’s confidence in their leaders and their most important institutions to do the right thing has collapsed. The federal government, big business, the media, education, science and medicine, technology, religious institutions, law enforcement and others have seen a precipitous decline. As public faith in the performance, credibility and integrity of these institutions has collapsed, so too has mutual trust—the social glue that holds the country together. Americans have become suspicious of one another, distrusting their fellow citizens as much...
  • Biden fails crisis management in Hawaii; DeSantis shines in Florida

    Washington Times ^ | September 9, 2023 | Michael McKenna
    One legitimate measurement of the readiness and capability of a candidate to be president is how he or she responds to a crisis. In a moment of crisis, the core of human beings is on display. Some people wither; others shine. Either way, it is always a peek into the foundation of the person — his or her value system. We had two examples of this recently, as both President Biden and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis had the opportunity to respond to crises, in the wake of the devastating fire on Maui and Hurricane Idalia, respectively. How did they do?...

    “In the eight years that my father was President of the United States I never once sat in the room with business associates and called him on the phone. If I had, the Democrats would have skewered me.” When I posted that tweet the other day, it got a huge response. As we know from last week’s big whistleblower news, over the course of 10 years — while Joe Biden was vice president and when he was out of power — Hunter Biden put his father on speakerphone at least 20 times during meetings he was having with foreign business...

    The Blaze ^ | June 21, 2023 | Auron MacIntyre
    Accelerating the great sortingAmerica has a serious problem. Healthy political bodies must share a common moral and cultural foundation if they are to work for the good of their nation. This does not mean everyone has to think in lockstep, but there must be at least some shared tradition, some basic moral language with which the population can frame their understanding of political issues. This becomes especially true if the state expands its reach by assuming duties that once belonged to other social spheres like those of the family, local community, or church. When the state is deciding whether parents...

    I'm just frustrated. I have 2 older daughters in their 30's. I can't talk to them about any current topic. Everything I say triggers them. Today I got in a fuss defending the gallantry of Southern soldiers. Then I got in a fuss about being a culturist because I believe a substantial portion of the Black underclass in 5 times more likely to commit crimes and murder than other groups. 30 people a week shot in Chicago or New Orleans is OK but DeSantis is a racist. I just said I never see race in a competent individual. I just...

    Gov. Ron DeSantis of Florida all but declared his presidential candidacy on Thursday afternoon, telling donors and supporters on a call that only three “credible” candidates were in the race and that only he would be able to win both the Republican primary and the general election. “You have basically three people at this point that are credible in this whole thing,” Mr. DeSantis told donors on the call, organized by the super PAC supporting him, Never Back Down. “Biden, Trump and me. And I think of those three, two have a chance to get elected president — Biden and...

    So this was fun. As I’m responding to a post about traditional family values and the roles of women and men in a relationship. I’ll tip my hat here and say that I provided for a wife and 5 kids, it’s doable, but can be challenging. Face book deleted my comment before I could post it. I guess being an old school man is no longer allowed in the “land of the free”. God forbid that you explain what your helpmate is doing when you are working 80 hours a week, it’s called being a mom. Probably the most important...

  • Poll: Support for Traditional American Values, Patriotism Declines

    Breitbart ^ | 03/27/2023 | Katherine Hamilton
    The percentage of Americans who say patriotism, religious faith, family, and other traditional American values are “very important” is on the decline, a Wall Street Journal-NORC poll found. Support for every traditional American value included in the poll has receded since 1998 besides “money,” which has grown in importance. The data also shows young people and Democrats tend not to highly rank traditional American values as much as older adults and Republicans.
  • Traditional Values Like Patriotism, Religion and Community Have Plunged Dramatically Among Americans: Poll

    03/27/2023 12:56:12 PM PDT · by nickcarraway · 29 replies
    Long-held values like patriotism, religion and community involvement are in retreat across America, according to a stunning poll released Monday. The Wall Street Journal/NORC survey found that just 38% of Americans say patriotism is “very important” to them, down from 70% who said the same in 1998. Slightly more Americans (39%) placed the same importance on religion, down from 62% who said faith was “very important” to them 25 years ago. ​The percentage of Americans who said raising children was “very important” fell to 30% in the new poll, down from 59% in 1998.

    Aside from some grumbling from social conservatives, the Hyatt Regency Miami likely never dreamed it would suffer any consequences for hosting “A Drag Queen Christmas.” The sexually explicit celebration of our current societal obsessions took to the stage last December — with children present. After all, the big corporations have thoroughly internalized the principle that it is Leftists they must never offend, while they can infuriate patriots all day long. That’s why they’ve all gone woke.

    The term "Judeo-Christian values" is frequently used. I am one who uses it. I do so for the same reason the late great British prime minister Margaret Thatcher did: "The truths of the Judaic-Christian tradition," she said, "are infinitely precious, not only, as I believe, because they are true, but also because they provide the moral impulse which alone can lead to that peace, in the true meaning of the word, for which we all long...

  • Oprah Winfrey turns her back on Dr Oz and endorses Democrat John Fetterman in Pennsylvania Senate race despite 20 years on set with the television doctor

    Oprah Winfrey on Thursday night turned on the TV doctor she propelled to stardom - saying she would vote for Dr Mehmet Oz's rival John Fetterman in their battle to be elected to the Senate. Oz, a Turkish-American surgeon, and Fetterman, the current lieutenant governor of Pennsylvania, are neck-and-neck ahead of next week's election. Winfrey turned Oz into a household name when she appeared on his show in 2003, and invited him onto hers in 2004. He would go on to make more than 60 appearances on her hugely influential daytime show. Yet on Thursday, the 68-year-old media mogul said...

    My brother and I loved to play with my father's sword. The fact that my mother was quite unworried by this tells you a lot about the world we then lived in. It was a real weapon, made by Messrs Wilkinson, a beautiful patterned blade and a very sharp point. But the thing which fascinated me about it most was the hilt, several ridges of rough grey sharkskin... Now, the Royal Navy to which my father belonged had by then given up the use of naked steel blades, though only just. As recently as February 1940 sailors from the Destroyer...
