  • Joe 'You Ain't Black' Biden: Please watch 'Uncle Tom' Larry Elder touts documentary that looks at vitriol against independent-thinking African Americans

    June 19 is the premiere of "Uncle Tom," a documentary on which I am the executive producer. Through interviews with black conservatives, some well-known and some not, the film asks a simple question: Why are independent-thinking blacks, who believe in limited government and personal responsibility, denounced as "sellouts" and "coons" and "Uncle Toms" by fellow blacks? One can agree or disagree about whether, and to what degree, today's problems in the black community can be traced to slavery and Jim Crow. But blacks who do not connect the serious problems in black urban America to Jim Crow and slavery are...

    By: BNJ Editor and Chief At Large I did not create the BNJ for profit. The BNJ informs and is therapeutic. My desire is to publish both sides of an issue from a neutral perspective. The mendacity of the national media is frustrating me to no end, as I assume it is doing the same for you. The BNJ is an outlet for our frustration. We can reach 100 or 1000 people. That makes a difference and you can help. The BNJ is not right or left. It presents both sides. I don’t want to turn off either side. My...

    Three years ago I attended the Conservative Political Action Conference and was struck by something I later concluded was probably a figment of my imagination. This year I returned, and, rather than having my recollection dispelled, it was confirmed. The young women who attend CPAC are spectacular. No kidding: What’s up with this concentration of incredibly attractive young, conservative women? It’s noticeable and remarkable. They are beautiful and stylish in the way French women often are, which is to say in their own way, not in a conforming or predictable way. They all look like the girl the high school...

    American Thinker ^ | 2020 March 27 | Bryce Buchanan
    Governments can create money, but creating money does not create wealth. Wealth comes from productivity. Putting ink on small pieces of paper does not make wealth. You can visualize this fact quite easily. Imagine that our government officials keep businesses closed "to protect us from the virus," but they send everyone large checks every month. Our benevolent leaders made sure we had lots of money, so we are all taken care of, right? Without productive people, the true engine of wealth, Atlas would shrug, and the world would fall into its natural state, which is poverty. Anything that destroys productivity...

    A recent report by Chris Stewart has shed new light on some of the educational problems faced by black youth. The report is titled "The Secret Shame: How America's Most Progressive Cities Betray Their Commitment to Educational Opportunity for All." Stewart is a self-described liberal and CEO of Brightbeam, a nonprofit network of education activists who want to hold progressive political leaders accountable. The report asks, "So how do we explain outstandingly poor educational results for minority children in San Francisco -- which also happens to be one of the wealthiest cities in the country?" "The Secret Shame" reports that...

    Republicans gathered at the Conservative Political Action Conference on Thursday to cheer on their conservative heroes. But they also had an opportunity to shame GOP politicians they deemed not pro-Trump enough, casting ballots for the “phoniest ‘conservative’ lawmaker.” Next to a stuffed donkey with a fake elephant’s snout, attendees voted for the likes of former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), and former Ohio Gov. John Kasich, who led the ballot count as of Thursday afternoon. One prominent GOP Trump critic wasn’t an option, though—because everybody already knew he’d win in a landslide.

    Yesterday our old buddy, self-made man Rob Reiner called the president a "Malignantly Narcissistic Pathologically Lying Misogynistic Racist." Whew! That's a lot of typing. Want to thank old Robo honestly as he illustrates probably better than anybody else in Hollywood what I've been saying for many, many years about Liberalism. I'm branching out now to video (Hollywood Mock Show) and here is the link--https://youtu.be/LEzNtm-W0iQ. It starts a little slow (background info) but naturally I think it's worth it and believe it or not, I also believe it true.

    A lot of attention has been given recently to conservative icon and venerable syndicated radio host Rush Limbaugh and his advanced lung cancer diagnosis. President Trump rightfully honored him with the Presidential Medal of Freedom during last week’s State of the Union address. Unfortunately, America received more sad news last week. Dan Weber, veteran, husband, father, grandfather, entrepreneur, visionary and giant in the conservative movement, passed away last Monday evening. You say you haven’t heard of Dan Weber? Please let me enlighten you. Dan Weber was born in Brooklyn, NY and grew up no stranger to hard work. He began...

    Claire Chase is running as a Republican for New Mexico’s 2nd Congressional District seat in 2020, and she stopped by the Daily Caller to sit down with senior White House correspondent Christian Datoc. Chase, the 36-year-old former chairman of the New Mexico Oil and Gas Association and a mother of two, is running against Democratic Congresswoman Xochitl Torres Small who turned the primarily Republican district blue in 2018. Chase talked to Datoc about her support for President Donald Trump’s US-Mexico-Canada trade agreement, the border wall, the Second Amendment, and her opposition to the Green New Deal.

    Source: Courtesy of Burgess Owens After the Civil War, Union General William T. Sherman issued Special Field Order No. 15, which confiscated 400,000 acres of Confederate land from Charleston, South Carolina all the way to the St. John's River in Florida. According to Sherman's order, every newly-freed African American family was to receive 40 acres and later down the line, a mule. Former NFL Raiders' safety Burgess Owens' grandfather was one of those people who received 40 acres and a mule after being freed from slavery. And of the things Owens' family learned early on is that anyone who...

    Washington Examiner ^ | 1/14/20 | Timothy P. Carney
    America’s elite - that is, the 30% of adults with at least a college degree - enjoy one very particular privilege that enhances their life and nearly guarantees their success. And too many of them refuse to share it. The privilege isn’t a college education. That merely correlates with what really matters. And the greatest privilege isn’t material wealth. That sure makes life easier, but wealth mostly correlates with the real privilege I'm referring to. America’s elite have a secret weapon that steers them and their children away from drugs, early death, violence, dropping out of high school, dropping out...

    The aftermath of the Soleimani strike is filled with unhappy subplots but a rare enjoyable one will be watching Fox’s 8 p.m. guy tussle with, well, pretty much everyone else on the network over whether aggression towards Iran is a good or bad thing.Tucker is clear and consistent. He doesn’t trust America’s hawkish national security establishment, be it in the context of Saddam’s WMDs, the Trump campaign’s alleged collusion with Russia, or the supposedly “imminent” threat posed by Qassem Soleimani. Especially the latter, as he’s been an outspoken critic of belligerence towards Iran throughout Trump’s presidency. He was the...

    The hunt for solid conservative news sites that offer more than just spin and cheerleading is often difficult, fraught with hours of web trawling and disappointment.

Over the last 12 months, our poll has reached the giddy heights of being the number one Google search result for Top Conservative News. For 2020, we decided to do even better.

    Something new must emerge from the wreckage of the Flight 93 election. This is the second post in an ongoing series of reports and reflections from abroad by Jeremy Carl. Read the first here.–Eds. Hunter Hearns has offered a grim but accurate assessment of the results of the Flight 93 election. Despite the sincere efforts of many talented people (undermined in part, it should be said, by a number of GOP establishment hacks and Never Trumpers), the conservative storming of the cockpit has failed to prevent the plane of state from crashing. Indeed, Hearns indirectly shows the true depth of...
  • BREAKING: Boris Johnson’s Conservatives on course for huge victory, exit poll projects

    Boris Johnson’s Conservative Party is on course for a huge majority in Parliament, according to an exit poll from the UK’s three main broadcasters. The projections will be a big disappointment for Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour Party and suggests Johnson will be able to pass his Brexit deal comfortably. The exit poll is usually fairly accurate but a lot can still change as the night progresses and actual results begin to come through. Here’s the exact seat numbers from the exit poll, which predicts a huge Conservative win. 326 seats are needed for a majority. Conservatives: 368 Labour: 191 SNP: 55...

    Conservative Party Leader Andrew Scheer is resigning. But he says he will stay on as leader until his replacement is chosen and continue to serve as MP for Regina—Qu’Appelle. His resignation comes as a direct result of new revelations that he was using Conservative Party money to pay for his children’s private schooling, according to Conservative sources who spoke with Global News. Senior Conservatives say the expenditures were made without the knowledge or approval of the Conservative fund board, including the chair of the board. There are also calls for the party’s executive director, Dustin van Vugt, to resign over...
