  • Are Conservatives Prepared to be Censored?

    What images should appear when you Google “white couple”? Probably two people of European descent. If you search those words today, though, you’ll find almost exclusively black couples. The results are similarly skewed for “white man & white woman” and “white couple with children”. Try it. Strange, a bit annoying, and vaguely political – just imagine the reaction if a query for “black couple” turned up only whites. I suspect that wouldn’t fly at Google. What results would you expect when Googling “American inventors”? Likely a mix of great innovators from our past and present, from a variety of backgrounds....
  • Why Conservatives Should Watch More MTV

    Twenty-five years ago, when MTV played mostly videos, defeated presidential candidate Patrick J. Buchanan delivered his “Culture War” speech before the Republican National Convention on August 17 at the Houston Astrodome, where he feared for the “soul of America.” Twenty-five years later, when conservatives have ceded all control of the culture war to the Left, MTV’s Video Music Awards (VMAs, itself a bizarre oxymoron for an outlet that plays no videos) is now a forum about politics and the course of the country. Conservatives should watch more MTV. Take heed Buchanan’s observations. And fight back. ...

    I saw a little girl who spent all her tears, in a shelter squeezing her mother’s fingers. The other hand held tight on her shirt, assuring herself she wouldn’t be swept away again. Her face was dirty, wet hair strewn across her cheek like a scar from battle. The eyes were wide in a stance of frightened anticipation on what’s next. No one could comprehend the horror of the monster that day. They don’t teach that in Kindergarten. Then someone asked her if she would like some ice cream. Her mouth blossomed, a smile hatched as her eyes turned down...
  • 'Eyes Wide Shut' actress: I came out as a conservative in Hollywood. [TR]

    About a year ago I made one of the more risky decisions of my life – one that I knew could hurt my career as an actress. I decided to come out of the conservative closet and admit to my peers that I was a conservative in Hollywood. Yes, hard as it is for some to believe, not everyone in the entertainment industry on the Left Coast is a left-winger. An acquaintance had asked me to write for a right-of-center political magazine. I realized I would be outing myself by doing it, but I ended up writing a few dozen...

    David Mamet, Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright, once noted “I look back on my liberal political beliefs with a sort of wonder – as another exercise in self-involvement – rewarding myself for some superiority I could not logically describe” At the age of 60 he meet first conservative thinker. Upon closer examination he discovered that most conservative thoughts were based on real-world facts while “Liberalism is a religion. Its tenets cannot be proved, its capacity for waste and destruction demonstrated. But it affords a feeling of spiritual rectitude at little or no cost.” Sadly, he captures the reality and emotional allure of...

    SAN FRANCISCO — The Latest on conservative free speech rallies in San Francisco and Berkeley, California (all times local): 9:30 a.m. Dog walkers are planning to protest a politically conservative free-speech rally by leaving pup poop at San Francisco's Crissy Field. A Facebook page encourages protesters to let their dogs loose Friday and Saturday morning at the park near the Golden Gate Bridge and not pick up after them. The page assures dog owners that they can come together Sunday to clean up the field of feces and "hug each other." Portland, Oregon-based Patriot Prayer has a permit to host...

    In an exclusive interview with The Daily Caller, Alabama’s famous “Ten Commandments judge” Roy Moore reveals shocking new developments from his campaign for U.S. Senate. The frontrunner in Alabama’s U.S. Senate race with 39 percent of the vote, Moore alleges that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is trying to steal the election by letting Democrats vote in Alabama’s Republican primary. “Well that’s exactly what their strategy is. That’s what they’re talking about. I wish the people of Alabama knew that. I wish the people of Alabama knew that McConnell and them were using the Democrats to come into the Republican...

    Conservative Review ^ | 8/23/17 | Chrid Pandolfo
    Former Alabama state Chief Justice Roy Moore tells Conservative Review that should he successfully win his Senate race, he would vote against Senator Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., remaining Senate majority leader. With a little over four weeks until Alabama’s GOP primary runoff, Moore holds a commanding lead over incumbent Senator Luther Strange, according to the latest poll. The McConnell-affiliated Senate Leadership Fund super PAC has dumped millions into keeping the unelected Strange in office. In the initial GOP primary, Moore ended in first place, with nearly 39 percent of the vote. Strange was second, with around 33 percent of the votes...

    The Federalist ^ | August 23, 2017 | Jayme Metzgar
    It’s a remarkable quirk of our federal republic that U.S. policy often hinges on local races. Regional personalities and issues, emerging from places coastal elites have never visited, will play a significant role in next year’s midterm elections—most crucially, the battle for the U.S. Senate. At stake is not just which party controls the upper chamber—the rough number of blues versus reds—but how faithful senators will be to their governing philosophies. As the dust settles from 2018, will Washington be more conservative? More liberal? More functional? Local politics will determine many of these answers. In tiny Harpers Ferry, West Virginia,...

  • Is Google Working with Liberal Groups to Snuff Out Conservative Websites?

    PJ Media ^ | 08/19/17 | Paula Bolyard
    Google revealed in a blog post that it is now using machine learning to document "hate crimes and events" in America. They've partnered with liberal groups like ProPublica, BuzzFeed News, and the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) to make information about "hate events" easily accessible to journalists. And now, there are troubling signs that this tool could be used to ferret out writers and websites that run afoul of the progressive orthodoxy. In the announcement, Simon Rogers, data editor of Google News Labs, wrote: Now, with ProPublica, we are launching a new machine learning tool to help journalists covering hate...

    Some attendees at the National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ) conference in New Orleans on Friday turned their backs on White House adviser Omarosa Manigault after she repeatedly did not take the bait to answer loaded questions about her personal conversations with President Donald Trump and involvement his administration. The black journalists turned their backs on Manigault even though she said she disagreed with Trump’s joke about how he did not want police to be “too nice” by putting their hands on top of the heads of “thugs” while throwing them “into the back of a paddy wagon.” Trump’s joke...

    Most Americans are at least somewhat aware of what is happening at American (and European) universities with regard to conservative speakers. Universities disinvite conservative speakers, never invite them, or allow the violent (or threatened violent) prevention of them. No non-left-wing idea should be permitted on campus. But we may have hit a new low. For years, I have been conducting symphony orchestras in Southern California. I have conducted the Brentwood-Westwood, Glendale, and West Los Angeles Symphony Orchestras, the Pasadena Lyric Opera, and the Los Angeles Philharmonic at the Hollywood Bowl. I have studied classical music since high school, when I...

    On Tuesday, August 1, Media Research Center President Brent Bozell issued the following statement:  On behalf of my late father and my family, I am denouncing Senator Jeff Flake and his new book, dishonestly titled, Conscience of a Conservative.   Since entering the Senate in 2013, Jeff Flake has, time and again, proven he is part of the indulgent hypocrisy in Washington. While he waxes poetically about conservative principles, his Conservative Review Liberty score is an abysmal 53%, also known as: “F”. In 2013, I watched first-hand as Flake refused to sign a letter pledging to defund ObamaCare, among his...

    On Monday, the Democrats were really excited about their new slogan, “A Better Deal: Better Skills, Better Jobs, Better Wages.” Widely ridiculed for being idiotic, here’s a slogan they could have chosen, which is much more honest about the current liberal agenda: “A Bully’s Deal: If You Ever Think For Yourself and Don’t Conform, We’ll Ruin Your Life.” This slogan has been operational for a generation. It is shouted at conservative women, gays and other minorities because, you see, today’s Democrats cannot afford to have anyone in any of their protected classes get the idea that they can think for...

    What Will Trump Bring? Failures and scandals result in alterations where triumphs thrive. The fingers in the wind point to an investment of aspirations, that today’s liberal won’t see their irrationality rise to the degree they basked in again in our lifetime. The good bet could be made that Trump is going change the landscape of American politics from here forth. Smart money says he’s going to be wildly successful in results that separate wheat from the chaff. Yesterday’s platitudes that never put meat on the table, beg forgiveness to wait until tomorrow won’t receive an invite to the next...
