  • Trump is goading Pelosi to completely disinvite him to speak in the House for the SOTU

    01/17/2019 5:00:32 PM PST · by Bigtigermike · 48 replies
    President Trump latest action of denying Pelosi use of military planes within hours of departure overseas in light of the shutdown, puts Nancy and the Democrats in a goading box If Pelosi acquiesce and allow Trump to speak before all of Congress in the House then she will appear as groveling and weak as she backs down from her supposedly power move praised by the media. The radical leftists in the House wouldn’t like it either and would slam Pelosi as a weakling and not standing up to Trump. President Trump wins If Pelosi denies Trump to speak before all...
  • What a Socialist Really Wants

    What exactly is a socialist? You could spend all day studying encyclopedias and not settle anything. Using various definitions, you could probably prove that anybody is or isn't a socialist. So let's talk to a socialist. Ignore the verbiage and look inside his head. When someone announces to the world, "I'm a socialist," what is that person thinking? With this focus, everything becomes simpler. Socialists may not be able to claim experience, learning, smarts, or success. But they make up for all that by a boundless certitude about philosophical and political matters. It's as if they, albeit atheists, are guided...
  • The Embezzling Nuns From the Order That Helped Train Obama

    It was reported recently that a couple of nuns out in Southern California had ripped off the Catholic school where they worked for many years to the tune of at least $500,000. They spent the money on gambling sprees to Las Vegas, among other pursuits. The habit-less sisters, who were henned up together in a Torrance townhouse inside a gated community (the neighbors, according to the Los Angeles Times, wondered how they afforded their matching Volvos), hail from the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet — a “social justice” religious order, naturally. But even richer than that, it is the...
  • Anybody hearing about just how far left the caravan organizers are?

    To hear the news report it, the migrant caravan is just a spontaneous uprising of women and children fleeing Honduran gangs, and the issue is one of Mexico and the U.S. diplomacy finding a way to accommodate them. What's lost is just how hard, hard, left the organizers of what has become this humanitarian disaster are. Even the leftist liberation-theology-oriented rifles-and-cassocks crowd are is getting concerned. Their agenda is hard-left, pro-Chavista, and drawing the fringiest leftwing groups. It's not a humanitarian mission in the slightest to them, it's a by-any-means-necessary political mission. A look at the caravan organizers and their...
  • 12 things to do instead of calling the cops (must be seen to be believed)

    11/20/2018 9:53:46 AM PST · by Borges · 70 replies
    This came from a group called PLOT (Progressive Leaders of Tomorrow). This is apparently not satire. *** Calling the police often escalates situations, puts people at risk, and leads to violence. Anytime you seek help from the police, you're inviting them into your community and putting people who may already be vulnerable into dangerous situations. Sometimes people feel that calling the police is the only way to deal with problems. But we can build trusted networks of mutual aid that allow us to better resolve conflicts ourselves and move towards forms of transformative justice, while keeping police away from our...

    President Donald Trump said he regrets the tone he has used during his first two years in office during an exclusive interview with Sinclair Broadcast Group. "I would like to have a much softer tone. I feel to a certain extent I have no choice, but maybe I do," Trump said. He attributed his tone during his first two years in office to wanting to get things done on his agenda, adding that he could have been softer in his delivery. He said after the midterm election his tone is something he will be working on and he hopes there...

    Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R-WI) said he believed conservatives have embraced “tribal identity politics,” in the style of leftist community organizer Saul Alinsky. Host John Dickerson asked, “You’ve seen some President Trump’s rallies, do those rallies accentuate the things that unite us or are they — do they do something very successful in politics which is sow division in the country? Do you see that happening at his rallies? Ryan said, “Sometimes, yeah...

    No-one yet really knows what the motives are behind mailing packages containing fake pipe-bombs to high-profile members of the Trump ‘resistance‘. Hopefully the FBI will identify the perpetrators quickly. However, given the history of left-wing political activity and their use of fake hate crime as a tool to advance victim politics, the strongest origination likelihood is a person or group connected to left-wing activism. Toward that suspicion there is growing Alinsky-motive visible amid media. CNN is desperate to pin the blame on President Trump. Check out the Alinsky model narrative engineering on display today. It starts out by labeling the...
  • College socialist angry after Sen. David Perdue (R-GA) nationalizes his phone

    A member of the Young Democratic Socialists of America at Georgia Tech University is furious at Sen. David Perdue after the Georgia Republican nationalized his phone while campaigning for gubernatorial candidate Brian Kemp: “Give me my phone back, senator” exclaimed the young man who wants the government to take other people’s property: So it’s only OK if the government takes someone else’s property and not your own? WEIRD! Also, these are the people who are pissed at Sen. Perdue right now: It’s going to be a really, really short “Revolution” if this is how they act. Sen. Perdue did quickly...

    Years from now, perhaps only days from now, when people are no longer quite so inebriated with partisanship, those who wish Brett Kavanaugh well and those who wish him ill will probably agree on one thing: His defiant September 27 statement denying the charges leveled against him in the course of his Supreme Court confirmation is the defining speech of our time. Kavanaugh rejected outright Christine Blasey Ford’s allegation that he had jumped her and gagged her at a party 36 years ago, when both were in high school. He denied knowingly having met her. None of the witnesses she...

    Hillary Clinton, in a television interview Tuesday, rejected the idea that Democrats should be “civil” with Republicans in the age of Donald Trump, embracing a more confrontational and aggressive political approach. “You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about,” Clinton said. Speaking to CNN’s Christiane Amanpour, the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee said, “That’s why I believe, if we are fortunate enough to win back the House and/or the Senate, that’s when civility can start again. But until then, the only thing Republicans seem to recognize and respect is...

    New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker said on Sunday the possibility of impeaching Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh shouldn’t be off the table if Democrats take one of the houses of Congress in next month’s midterm elections. Kavanaugh was confirmed on Saturday by a narrow vote following a contentious process that included multiple sexual assault allegations. Other Democrats have raised the possibility of impeaching Kavanaugh over allegations that he committed perjury in his hearing at the Senate Judiciary Committee, on which Booker sits.

    Commentary Magazine ^ | 10/5/18 | John Podhoretz
    At 12:30 in the afternoon on September 27, I don’t think there were many serious political thinkers or activists on the Right who thought Brett Kavanaugh would survive that morning’s testimony by his accuser, Christine Blasey Ford. Eight days later—today—Kavanaugh all but secured his appointment. The question is, how did this happen. The answer is: Kavanaugh happened. In his unprecedented speech following Ford’s testimony, Kavanaugh not only blasted the process but made no pretense when it came to those who had manipulated it—liberal groups, people angry with Donald Trump, people wanting to take revenge for the Clintons. The speech electrified...

    Reader Jamie Gelfand asks the right question about the Brett Kavanaugh disgrace, writing: “If Christine Blasey Ford held a news conference tomorrow and said she made everything up and apologized for dragging Kavanagh through the mud, would even one Democrat change his vote?” The question answers itself because the Dems keep moving the goalposts. When one line of attack fails, they come up with another. The only consistency is their determination to keep Kavanaugh off the Supreme Court. Recall that some of the party’s initial talking-point objections described his judicial rulings as “extreme” and “out of the mainstream.” They are...

    Hillary Clinton calls Donald Trump supporters a “bucket of deplorables” and “irredeemable”. I never quite envisioned what Hillary meant by that expression until the Brett Kavanaugh hearings. If redemption is unavailable regardless of a person’s lifetime accomplishments how does anyone qualify?

    In tonight’s interview with Martha MacCallum, it would have been easy for Brett Kavanaugh to play the legal equivalent of a prevent defense. He’s a smart enough lawyer to understand the state of the evidence. None of his accusers have been able to come forward with a single witness who can offer first-hand corroboration of their stories. Indeed, they can’t even come forward with a single witness placing him at the scene of either alleged crime. In circumstances like that, the safest course is to simply repeat a blanket denial and repeat all the different ways the accusers’ cases are...
