  • College Paper... Op-ed Slamming Conservative Ideas: 'Not Equal To Liberal & Left'

    The independent student newspaper at Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri, published an op-ed in which the student author slammed conservative ideas, saying they "are not equal to liberal and left ideas." The piece, titled "It's OK that conservatives don't feel welcome," appeared in the "Student Life" paper. The op-ed's author explained that conservative ideas don't "deserve equal consideration to that afforded liberal and left ideas." "There is no legitimate argument for supporting Donald Trump and his allies, at least not one that holds up in any academic community worth its salt," the author wrote. "But we shouldn’t create an...

    Rus is very ill, with what looked like the flu but now seems to have evolved in pneumonia and he is in the hospital and having trouble breathing. There seems to be some renal failure and heart injury. He was moved to Buffalo General for more sophisticated treatment. Rus is a stalwart conservative and dedicated activist, loved by those who know him. Please give him your support in prayer.

    I don’t want to divide up the country. I don’t want to occupy New York City or San Francisco. I just want to take the minority of outraged Communist and build a monument to freedom with their skulls. The Democrat Party is willing to burn America down in order to steal it, and they are now the open enemy of the state and the people, and they’re going to get their reply ballistically, not rhetorically. Once you’re kissed in the forehead that way, there is no further reply. Nature is brilliantly subtle like that. Nothing less will suffice any longer....

    It wasn’t all bad news at the box office this past year. The movie industry as a whole may be boringly left-wing, but occasionally a conservative message breaks through, sometimes intentionally and sometimes accidentally or because filmmakers simply applied themselves to telling the truth. Here are ten films that brought conservative concepts to the multiplex in 2018, ranked according to conservative firepower:

    Who said that conservatives aren't discriminated against for their political beliefs? Pardes Seleh, a conservative who has worked at Fox News and is now a graduate student, shared an email today she received explaining why she was denied approval to rent an apartment in Washington, D.C. In an email, the owner/tenet writes to Seleh stating, "after pursuing your various journalistic and social media posts, it's pretty clear your political views are diametrically opposed to ours (and we hate Fox)." Seleh posted that email to Twitter this morning: An hour later Seleh, in a video posted to Twitter, explained that her...

    Most of my fellow members of the mainstream media are of the opinion that last week was a bad one for President Donald Trump. I beg to differ. Last week it was announced that the Weekly Standard was going out of business. It seems there’s no market for a “conservative” publication dedicated to opposing Trump. That’s good news. It’s further proof that - if there’s one thing Trump has done since assuming office - it is solidifying his support among conservatives. As for the “conservatives” who worked in the offices of the Standard until last week, only inside the Beltway...
  • "Conservative" Opposition to Ending Obamacare Makes Me Sick

    “CONSERVATIVE” OPPOSITION TO ENDING OBAMACARE MAKES ME SICK A Howard Kurtz article on Fox News this morning, Why Some Conservatives Don’t Like the Ruling Against Obamacare,” is mis-titled. There should have been quote marks around the word “conservative.” No self-respecting conservative would ever oppose a ruling striking down Obamacare, as has just happened when a federal judge in Texas ruled the law unconstitutional. Think about it—how is it possible for a law MANDATING that you buy a product be Constitutional? Medicine is a product. The practice of medicine is a commercial service. That’s free enterprise. If you force a doctor...

    Let me be blunt. It’s obvious to me that the political right needs a fighting force—an organized ground level force built for the political conflicts of the 21st century. Politics has become a contact sport. This force must be unlike many GOP political figures who want to avoid contact and seem obsessed with being admired by the left and the editorial boards of the New York Times and CNN, rather than pushing back against the people seeking to destroy them. Who was it that said, you can’t fix stupid? The left aided by the liberal media has declared war on...

    Conservatives must also take the political game as seriously as the leftists do. In this country, conservatives still outnumber liberals, but you would never know it by the voting tallies As Special Counsel Robert Mueller racks up the guilty pleas for minor infractions by supporters of President Trump unrelated to Russian Collusion and ignores the crimes committed by members of the FBI, DOJ, and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, it should come as no surprise that Conservatives are playing in the wrong game. Even after Republicans won the White House, Senate and House of Representatives they acted as if...

He is the founder of the law school’s chapter of The Federalist Society, the only conservative student organization on campus.On the evening of November 20th, 2018, while at an outing hosted by one of his professors for the holiday, Brandon received an email from the university stating that due to an alleged and unspecified threat he was immediately suspended and would have to meet with the school's CARE team. He emailed several times asking procedural questions about the investigation as it was...
  • Tucker Carlson says Trump is ‘not capable’ and hasn’t kept his promises

    Fox News Channel host Tucker Carlson set straight any misinformation concerning his views on President Trump: “I don’t think he’s capable,” he said during an interview on Tuesday. Urs Gehriger, an editor at “Die Weltwoche,” the country’s leading German-language opinion weekly, noted that Carlson’s new book, “Ship of Fools,” is silent on Trump but comments on his critics. And so, Gehriger jump-started the conversation by asking what Carlson thought of Trump’s first two years in office. Carlson said he cannot stand Trump’s self-aggrandizement and boasting. Then, when asked whether Trump has kept his promises, the usually quick-witted and long-winded Carlson...

    The fate of The Weekly Standard, the conservative magazine that has staked out a position as a publication on the right still critical of President Donald Trump, is uncertain, Editor-in-Chief Stephen Hayes told staff in a series of phone calls Tuesday, according to two people familiar with the matter. The magazine's precarious position comes after its leadership spent months searching for a buyer, the people told CNN. The people explained that The Weekly Standard's leadership had butted heads with MediaDC, the current publisher of the magazine, and that the two parties had agreed to allow Hayes to search for a...

Should liberals start describing themselves as humor-challenged?.. why didn’t the liberals in the Boston experiment like the nonsense humor of “Deep Thoughts” as much as the conservatives did? ... Rod Martin, the author of “The Psychology of Humor,” said the results of the Boston study might reflect another trait that has been shown to correlate with a taste for jokes: cheerfulness.... “Conservatives tend to be happier than liberals in general,” said Dr. Martin, a psychologist at the University of Western Ontario. “A conservative outlook rationalizes social inequality, accepting the world as it is, and making...

    I may be signing my own Twitter death warrant with this opinion piece but so be it if I dare to criticize and accuse the man who has more power to influence American political thought than Vladimir Putin ever could dream of having. That man is Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey. By silencing conservative thought he can control much of America’s political dialogue, with his minions deliberately steering it in a leftist direction reflecting their inner beliefs, while blaming it on inanimate software. Pushed to the wall, they bleat that the algorithm made them do it. As this Congress winds down,...

    Ken Stern did not expect to enjoy pig hunting in Texas. As the former head of NPR, he did not expect to find common ground with the people of evangelical churches or eastern Kentucky coal mines. And he did not expect to renounce his Democratic membership. But after a year immersed in Republican culture, Stern learned life on the other side of the political divide is far from how it's depicted — a problem he pins on a polarized media landscape, and the very institutions he formerly called home.

    CALLER: Rush, I’m very disappointed in you and in fact, quite honestly, I’m angry with you because of what you told that lady two days ago and what you told the other call today earlier today in the program. You’re advising us, your loyal audience for 30 years, that have stood by you and that have made you the Moses of conservatism. You are now telling us that we should call ourselves “problem solvers” rather than conservatives so that we can try to get the political power that we need. [CUT] That’s wrong! Admit you’re wrong and do it right...

  • I Identify as a Jesus-Follower Far More Than as an Older, White, Male, Conservative American

    It’s true that I prefer the Republican Party platform to the Democratic Party platform, hands down. It’s true that I’m a moral conservative when it comes to social issues like abortion, homosexuality, gender distinctions, and the meaning of marriage. And that means that, demographically, I fit right in with the older, white, male, Republican crowd. But that is absolutely not my place of personal identity. My identity flows from my relationship with the Lord and is fueled by His calling and His Word.Put another way, I do not long to uphold the status quo of America. To the contrary, everything...

    A campaign rally with Vice President Mike Pence in central Ohio on Wednesday included two unlikely voters, farmers Levi Miller and Ben Hostetler, who are part of a determined effort by Trump supporters and the Republican Party to get members of the conservative Amish and Mennonite communities to the polls. Mr. Miller and Mr. Hostetler ordinarily drive horse-drawn buggies, but they got a ride for this event with a volunteer from the group Bikers for Trump, which has been working on outreach to the Amish in Ohio for about two years. “The Amish are doing a lot under the radar,”...

    So, tell them again, Mitch McConnell and GOP swamp, why should Mississippi settle for a never-Trumper masquerading as a republican when they could send a verified conservative and supporter of Trump's agenda to Washington? The facts about the Mississippi special election to replace Thad Cochran have been completely misrepresented by the GOP “Vote Red” campaign. Making voters believe that the senate race is the usual partisan showdown, the GOP has pressured President Trump to endorse the governor-appointed candidate Cindy Hyde-Smith who is a proven democrat in republican clothing. The MSGOP even went as far as to coerce McDaniel voters wearing...
