    Can you imagine how scary it would be to live in a world where your livelihood depended on having the ‘correct’ politics? It’s the sort of thing you might expect of totalitarian regimes – Baathist Iraq under Saddam Hussain; everywhere that has ever tried communism; increasingly, Xi’s panopticon China – but definitely not of any liberal democracy in the 21st century. That dystopian future, though, may be much closer than you think. I only properly appreciated this recently when the podcast I’ve been doing for the last few years was mysteriously dropped by my regular employer, forcing me to seek...
  • GOP senator: Republicans with opinions like Steve King's damage party, nation

    Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.) tore into fellow Republican Rep. Steve King (Iowa) on Friday after King questioned how terms such as “white supremacist” and "white nationalist" were offensive, writing in an op-ed that Republicans with opinions like King's damage the party and the nation as a whole. Scott wrote in an op-ed for The Washington Post that the party often struggles with “civility and fairness,” pointing to King’s comments, which drew swift blowback from conservatives and Democrats. “When people with opinions similar to King’s open their mouths, they damage not only the Republican Party and the conservative brand but also...
  • Almost ALL Federal employees have an intense dislike for conservatives. Never forget that.

    This article posting gives me fear, but it must be said. I have worked for the Federal government and know for a fact that Federal employees, almost all of them, have an intense dislike for conservatives and Trump in particular. They may come after me and probably will in some form or fashion, but someone has to make a sacrifice to get the truth out. If people could only see what it is like on the inside, they would be in shock at the hatred harbored for everyday Americans. Those in supervisory positions absolutely will not tolerate ANYONE challenging their...

    When other demographic factors and overall posting tendencies are factored in, the average person older than 65 shared seven times more false information than those between 18 and 29. The seniors shared more than twice as many fake stories as people between 45 and 64 and more than three times that of people in the 30- to 44-year-old range, said lead study author Andrew Guess, a politics professor at Princeton. The simplest theory for why older people share more false information is a lack of "digital literacy," said study co-author Joshua Tucker, also co-director of the NYU social media political...

    There’s no hack cliché like the New Year’s prediction column cliché, so with that in mind, here’s my Top 10 Predictions for 2019 column, and my general prediction is that 2019 will be even crazier than 2018!10.     Out of Afghanistan Too: Yeah, our 17-year war will largely end as we bring most of the boys back home. As always, Trump will make his opponents go nuts. What will be a big part of the fun is watching the liberal media that slobbered over Obama’s tragic, premature Iraq pullout posing as hawks over this long-overdue strategic rethink. What you...

    Christian Post ^ | December 5, 2018 | Rachel Alexander
    I have a lefty friend who never stops insulting me because of my conservative and Christian views. Sometimes I wonder how I remain friends with him, but I’m a pretty easygoing person. He sent me an email the other day with the most vile, false stereotypes about conservatives and Christians, and said this is why he can’t stand us. So I thought why don’t I show him what it’s like to have someone portray your viewpoints as all offensive stereotypes? Conservatives are too nice, we’re too polite; we want to believe liberals have good intentions, they’re just misguided. So here’s...

    In the current issue of Vanity Fair, there’s an article by Nancy Jo Sales headlined “‘They Say We’re White Supremacists’: Inside the Strange World of Conservative College Women.” Sales profiles conservative young women at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and they’re well worth hearing out. These women think in interesting and nuanced ways at a time when most political activists are fleeing to the extremes. And the things they say don’t fit neatly on popular platforms that thrive on outrage. On Donald Trump: “Morally, I don’t stand with him,” says 19-year-old Cammie McMahan. “He’s not moral,” says...

    Conservatives are increasingly vowing to quit Twitter for what they say is censorship of prominent voices. The problem with conservatives or any like-minded group quitting a social media platform and all joining a new one is simple: Echo chambers are absolutely no fun. Ever hear of the saying, "... to own the libs?" How about, "... to own the cons." These are prominent sayings on Twitter, and embody much of what the platform is about: embarrassing, or beating or berating the other side. Invariably it's a combination of the three. So if conservatives left Twitter to go somewhere else, would...

    White liberals behave with less competence around black people “in an effort to get along,” according to a new study by a Yale professor. Yale Insights offered the following summary of the study by Cydney H. Dupree, assistant professor of organizational behavior at the Yale School of Management: “White Liberals Present Themselves as Less Competent in Interactions with African-Americans.” It’s about language The study further suggests that white Americans who hold liberal socio-political views tend to use words that make them appear less competent when they’re around racial minorities — but no significant differences were seen in conservatives’ word selections,...

    Conservative commentator Jesse Kelly, who was banned from Twitter last week, said on Tuesday that he was actually trying to avoid getting kicked off of the social media platform. "I honestly have no idea," Kelly told Hill.TV's Buck Sexton when asked why he was banned from Twitter. "The truth is, I understand how sensitive Twitter is. I understand that they are run by leftists, and they're trying to run off people on the right, so knowing that I'm fairly careful with it," Kelly said. "Especially because it was a big tool I used to promote my show, to promote my...

    Whether you know it or not, if you’re a conservative you are a conservationist. Why? Because you believe in conserving things. Along with liberals, conservatives likely think it is a good idea to conserve clean water and clean air. We might even argue that it’s wise to conserve an owl, a tree and a whale once in a while. But what often distinguishes conservatives from our progressive brothers and sisters is that we believe in conserving not just the material but also the moral and the intellectual. We believe in conserving ideas. Conservatives hold there are certain ideas that are...

    About three and a half years ago, the NDP surprised many in Alberta and across the country by winning a majority government in a province that had never elected the NDP and had been governed by the Progressive Conservative Party for 44 years. With about six months to go before the start of the next provincial election in Alberta, we surveyed 800 Albertans at the end of October and asked them to share their views on politics in the province. Here’s what we found: THE UNITED CONSERVATIVE PARTY LEADS BY 15 AMONG COMMITTED VOTERS BUT 26% OF ALBERTANS SAY THEY...

    If Christian and conservative Americans do not sufficiently rouse themselves and get to the polls this time around, in order to make the crucial difference, nearly all 250 years of our existence will have been just a pitiful waste of time You probably don’t remember Captain Arthur J. Jackson. At 19 he was ‘PFC Jackson’, a kid Marine in World War II’s South Pacific Theatre on Peleliu Island. With his outfit pinned down by intense enemy fire and his brother Marines with their hands full just surviving, Jackson’s sergeant asked him if he could secure a point in a trench...

    Former President Barack Obama has been traveling across the country campaigning on behalf of Democratic candidates. During a campaign rally for Sen. Bill Nelson (D-FL) in Miami on Friday, Obama became unhinged over conservatives and what we say will happen if Democrats take power."In 2010, they said Bill and I were setting up death panels to kill your grandma. Remember that? In 2014 they said Ebola is going to kill all of us, shut the borders," Obama explained. "In 2016, it was Hillary’s emails. They were all wound up about that. Now, in 2018, they’re telling you the existential threat...

    This is CNN… On Friday, the outlet once dubbed the “least-trusted” name in network news for its rabid anti-Trump and anti-Republican bias, published an op-ed suggesting that women engage in a “sex strike” before the midterm election, no doubt to help Democrats. “It’s time for a revolution,” wrote Wednesday Martin. “At the polls, and in the bedroom. And in our understanding of who women are, sexually and otherwise. Given the tight interweaving of economic and political power with sexual entitlement, female sexual autonomy has never been more urgent, and women’s sexual pleasure has never been more political. Let’s consider what...

    President Donald Trump denounced the media on Friday for trying to pin the recent bomb scare on him and his supporters. “We have seen an effort by the media in recent hours to use the sinister actions of one individual to score political points against me and the Republican party,” Trump said. The president commented on the news at his rally in Charlotte, North Carolina after authorities apprehended the Florida man suspected of sending pipe bombs to prominent Democrats. Trump condemned political violence and called for an end to the politics of personal destruction, especially from the media. “Political violence...

    Some conservatives have been peddling smears against missing Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi in an effort to cushion President Donald Trump from blowback over his handling of the situation with Saudi Arabia, The Washington Post reported Thursday. Efforts to raise questions about Khashoggi have made their way to Capitol Hill, where a group of House Republicans have been circulating articles from conservative outlets that tie the missing journalist to the Muslim Brotherhood and Osama bin Laden, the Post reported. Among those circulating such claims is Donald Trump Jr., who last week retweeted an unsubstantiated claim insinuating Khashoggi is a terrorist sympathizer....

    On October 16, a New York state trial court judge removed the Republican and Conservative nominees for Judge of the State Supreme Court from the November ballot. See this story. The basis was that the nominating conventions for this office, for these two parties, violated state law. The ruling says the parties may convene a new convention and re-nominate. New York elects State Supreme Court Justices from districts. This incident concerns the Fifth Judicial District, which, this year, is electing four justices. Although the Republicans have been removed from the Republican line and the Conservative line, they are still on...
