    “Our new generations walk through our cities like strangers, they have no idea what even Easter or Christmas truly mean, or what all those stories in those beautiful stained glasses or churches tell." - Thierry Baudet "A civilization that forgets its past is condemning its future." - Santiago Abascal As Christianity has declined, European politics has secularized. Christian democratic parties have lost their distinctive religious identities and become generic liberal or conservative parties. At the same time, secular Green and Socialist parties have increased their percentage of the vote. But in recent years, this political secularization has enjoyed a notable,...

    When Kanye West tweeted, "I love the way Candace Owens thinks" in 2018, he was maligned by much of the mainstream media. He also got a lot of young, politically minded Black men and women curious enough to delve into the controversy, and some liked what they discovered. Owens then teamed with Turning Point USA .. a conservative organization founded in 2012 by Charlie Kirk, to help launch the Young Black Leadership Summit where 400 Black youngsters gathered with President Donald Trump at the White House last year. Owens now heads Blexit, a group that encourages Blacks to ditch their...
  • The Wild West Must Remain Wild….and Free

    When Teddy Roosevelt ascended to the presidency after the assassination of William McKinley, a big business GOP political opponent exclaimed in disgust, “Now that damned cowboy is in the White House!”  This same reaction was widespread among the Republican establishment when Ronald Reagan was elected president in 1980, as he was a conservative, a conservationist and yes, a cowboy. Much like TR, Reagan also celebrated the outdoors, especially the American West. His favorite poet may have been Robert Service, a big, handsome man who penned poetry about the West. Reagan could recite “The Mountain and the Lake” at an invitation. Reagan...
  • ‘Wild West’ mentality lingers in US mountain regions

    09/07/2020 10:11:03 AM PDT · by LibWhacker · 65 replies
    Distinct psychological mix associated with mountain populations is consistent with the theory that harsh frontiers attracted certain personalities. This psychological fingerprint for mountainous areas may be an echo of the personality types that sought new lives in unknown territories Friedrich Götz When historian Frederick Jackson Turner presented his famous thesis on the US frontier in 1893, he described the “coarseness and strength combined with acuteness and acquisitiveness” it had forged in the American character. Now, well into the 21st century, and researchers led by the University of Cambridge have detected remnants of the pioneer personality in US populations of once...

    The Illinois State Board of Elections announced on Friday that rapper Kanye West fell 1,300 signatures short on his bid to be included on the state’s 2020 presidential election ballot. To qualify for the ballot in the Land Of Lincoln, West would have had to submit a minimum of 2,500 signatures, but election officials determined that the Ye rapper only submitted 1,200 valid signatures on his petitions, Chicago’s WTTW reported. Illinois recently reduced the number of signatures independent candidates need to get from 25,000 down to only 2,500 because the coronavirus prevented canvassers from approaching voters. West submitted 3,218 signatures,...

    Kanye West is an artist, producer, record label executive and fashion designer, but that’s apparently not enough for the multi-hyphenate. Now, the hip-hop powerhouse is looking to add another job to his ever-expanding resume: politician. The rapper took to Twitter on America’s birthday (July 4) to officially announce he is running for the highest office in the land. The superstar began his message by writing, “We must now realize the promise of America by trusting God, unifying our vision and building our future,” and he quickly got straight to the point by stating quite plainly, “I am running for president...

    Dr. Cornel West said on Friday we are witnessing the failed social experiment that is the United States of America in the protests and riots that have followed the death of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police. West told CNN host Anderson Cooper that what is going on is rebellion to a failed capitalist economy that does not protect the people. West, a professor, denounced the neoliberal wing of the Democratic party that is all about "black faces in high places" but not actual change. The professor remarked even those black faces often lose legitimacy because they ingriatiate...

    MUNICH - Speaking during the Munich Security Conference Saturday morning, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo called out European leaders and others for claiming the West is “westless,” pushed back on allegations that the United States “rejects the international community” and explained that the NATO alliance has been bolstered, not weakened, by President Trump’s demands on allied countries to properly budget for defense.  "I saw the topic for this weekend’s gathering, this idea of 'westlessness' as the core theme for this year’s conference. And I am sure, too, there are many of you who would call yourself here realists, but let me...

    CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — In what they acknowledged is a long-shot bid, West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice and Liberty University President Jerry Falwell Jr. urged unhappy Virginia counties Tuesday to secede and join a neighboring state where Democrats aren't in charge. Both Justice, a Republican in a state where the GOP dominates the legislature, and Falwell, whose university is in Lynchburg, Virginia, said the invitation to join West Virginia sends a valid message. “If you're not truly happy where you are, we stand with open arms to take you from Virginia or anywhere where you may be," said Justice, who's...

    Any honest and objective appraisal of Islam’s historic jihad on the Christian world must be eye-opening, to say the very least. In the first century of its existence (between 632-732) Islam permanently conquered, Arabized, and Islamized nearly three-quarters of the post-Roman Christian world, thereby permanently severing it. Europe came to be known as “the West” because it was literally the remaining and westernmost appendage of Christendom not to be swallowed up by Islam. For roughly a millennium thereafter, Arabs, Berbers, Turks, and Tatars—all of whom called and saw themselves as Muslims—launched raid after raid, all justified and lauded as jihads,...

    Rapper Kanye West spit it through the razor wire on Friday with two secret performances at the Harris County Jail. "This is a mission, not a show," he told the jailhouse crowd repeatedly. Men in orange put their hands up and smiled as they watched the singer and his gaggle of dancers, wearing navy jail-like scrubs for the show. Looking down from the second tier, men pressed up against the glass as they listened to hits from his gospel-themed Jesus is King album, according to video released by the Harris County Sheriff's Office. After kicking off with one performance for...

    The Trump administration reportedly notified hundreds of Interior Department employees Tuesday that they will have 30 days to relocate to western states or face the potential of job terminations. The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is relocating 27 employees from Washington, D.C., to the agency’s new headquarters in Colorado and another 220 to field offices out West, Government Executive (GE) reported Tuesday. The relocated employees reportedly have until Dec. 12 to agree to the move; if they don’t accept the terms, then they’ll be fired. This is not the first time federal employees have been asked to relocate. Department of...

    Kanye West's "Jesus Is King" album was not only crowned No. 1 on the charts but also managed to land every song on Billboard's Hot 100 this week. "Follow God" debuted the highest on the chart in the Top 10 at No. 7, followed by "Closed On Sunday," the 42-year-old born-again believer's anthem about Chick-fil-A and family values, at No. 17. In the top 25, "Selah" and "On God" came in at 19 and 23, respectively, with "God Is" and "Use This Gospel," featuring Clipse and Kenny G, Nos. 36 and 37.

    National Review ^ | Oct 2019 | Armond White
    Halloween Week’s bedlam (demonic parades and gratuitous candy commercials and other occult celebrations in the media) confirm the millennium’s casual godlessness, so the release of Kanye West’s new album and film, both titled “Jesus Is King,” intrudes on that party. Its impact will be long-lasting. West’s gospel revival coincides with his political independence. So far, this is West’s most powerful statement since President Trump and wearing a MAGA cap in public. By reviving his faith in the word of God and the independence of black Americana gospel, he forces others to remember the moral foundation of the civil-rights movement, which...

With all the excitement surrounding the idea of freedom these days, it seems a strange time to step in opposition to it.
