  • Poll: 71% of Conservatives Say It’s Time for U.S. to ‘Get Back to Work,’ 69% of Liberals Disagree

    More U.S. likely voters say it’s “time for America to get back to work” despite the COVID-19 pandemic, but that plurality is driven by conservatives, results of a national Rasmussen Reports survey released Monday reveal. While 43% of voters nationwide say “Yes,” it’s time to get back to work, 38% say “No,” it’s not. Another 19% are “unsure,” according to the survey of 1,000 voters conducted April 30 and May 3, 2020.

  • Nicolle Wallace on Reade: Dishonest Right Smearing Biden

    Nicolle Wallace got up on her high horse, cracked the whip, and began circling the wagons around Joe Biden. On her MSNBC show this afternoon, Wallace said, as someone who was once "a part of the Republican Party," that when it comes to Tara Reade, "the right" is not being "intellectually honest," and is instead "running a smear campaign against Joe Biden." In contrast, those honest old Democrats are simply seeking "consistency" about #MeToo. Wallace ended her anti-conservative diatribe by warning, "everyone should proceed with caution about statements made around this on the right."Get the rest of the story and...

    Conservatives have developed a fascination with Sweden’s hands-off approach to the coronavirus — an unexpected twist for a country that once served as a Republican punchline for Bernie Sanders jokes. On the surface, Sweden’s approach to containing the coronavirus pandemic is a libertarian dream: Restaurants remain open, as long as they adhere to social-distancing rules. Schools are in session. Salons are in business. And by some metrics, Sweden has fared roughly as well as many of its European neighbors, all of which have instituted much stricter lockdown measures. The combination has made Sweden an object of curiosity — and a...

    As Coronavirus Deniers Katherine Stewart couldn’t be bothered to find out, as a good journalist would, what the Cornwall Alliance or plenty of other conservative, evangelical Christians think about the coronavirus. Slander sufficed. “Stop denying science!! … There is a special place in hell for you folks!! If any of your ilk get COVID-19 I hope you stick to your ‘non-science’ beliefs and let someone else have a ventilator.” These are examples of messages the Cornwall Alliance for the Stewardship of Creation received recently. What could stir up such anger?These and similar messages were prompted by Katherine Stewart’s March 27...

    Tommy Robinson’s daughter was groped in a swimming pool, and instead of the police arresting the child molester, the police arrest Tommy Robinson instead. He was charged with common assault after allegedly ‘smacking’ a male holidaymaker in the face in an altercation at a Center Parcs swimming pool. Mr. Robinson said he had been trying to prevent a man he believed had committed an offense from leaving the scene. The man was treated at the scene by medics and was not taken to hospital, an insider told The Sun.

  • Eight out of 10 people working in arts or culture say they stay silent about supporting conservative ideologies because they risk being bullied and ostracized, new study reveals

    Daily Mail (UK) ^ | 24 February 2020 | LAUREN EDMONDS
    Eight out of 10 employees working in the arts or culture fields said that sharing controversial opinions could mean 'being professionally ostracized' or bullied. The survey conducted by ArtsProfessionals, a UK arts publication, received responses from more than 500 individuals in the field. 'Our arts, culture, and indeed education sectors are supposed to be fearlessly free-thinking and open to a wide range of challenging views. 'However, they are now dominated by a monolithic politically correct class (mostly of privileged white middle class people, by the way), who impose their intolerant views across those sectors.'

    So far I only see the real violence coming from the left. In every video, we report conservatives are attacked and in some cases, they respond by defending themself. Once again, triggered leftists have physically attacked conservatives on a college campus — and why? Once again, because they dared to set up a display and exercised their First Amendment rights. A video caught an ultra woke duo at the University of California, Santa Cruz, walking up to a table set up by College Republicans and destroying it last Friday. Once again, triggered leftists have physically attacked conservatives on a college...

    It’s been said by those who know Fred Smith well that when the visionary FedEx founder is asked about the U.S. Post Office, he’s known to say that in a competitive market he could put the government-created monopoly out of business in a matter of months. Smith’s confidence shouldn’t surprise readers, conservative readers least of all. That’s the case because at least in their rhetoric, conservatives preach the gospel of market discipline. The Post Office would be extraordinarily vulnerable to competition precisely because it’s never faced the kind of competition and investor pressure that conservatives at least rhetorically deem so...

    The Federalist ^ | February 6, 2020 | Ben Domenech
    To the extent that Mitt Romney, handsome rich guy, is a sympathetic figure, it is because his attempts to prostrate himself before the left fail so consistently. The “binders full of women” comment, perverted as it was by the media, was also a total capitulation to the idea that there ought to be more quotas and affirmative action in hiring. But even then – even then! – they still painted him and Paul Ryan as racists who wanted to kill grandma and crawl through your window at night to steal your birth control. The lesson Republican voters took away was:...

    In corporate media, conservative women are simply presumed to be bigoted, or stupid, or who cares, as long as it’s an opportunity to trivialize them. Washington Post columnist Petula Dvorak is confused. In October 2019 she visited a “Women for Trump” rally in our nation’s capital, trying to figure out why these women support President Trump. Attendants were hesitant to answer Dvorak, particularly when she identified herself as a WaPo employee.“The women on the Capitol lawn approving of him, for the most part, didn’t want to talk to me,” she acknowledged. Those who did answered with vagaries, like one woman...

    Even though American culture warriors of the right are fighting what Tolkien called ‘the long defeat’, surrender in the Battle of Chick-fil-A was a monumental symbolic loss. That’s because the fast-food chain had become what psychology calls a ‘condensation symbol’: a phrase or entity that powerfully evokes a worldview, and usually calls forth strong emotions around it. Chick-fil-A sells fried chicken. When are chicken nuggets not mere morsels of battered and fried chicken? When LGBT activists transform them into sacraments of Bible-thumping wickedness, as they have done with enormous effectiveness since 2012. That was the year that Dan Cathy, CEO...

    Pope Francis has blasted conservative Christians who pursue their faith too “rigidly” cautioning their “rigid outlook” is developing a “minefield of misunderstanding and hatred.” The head of the Catholic Church made the remarks he spoke honestly to cardinals, bishops, priests and members of staff in the Sala Clementina on Saturday in the Apostolic Palace, Vatican City for his annual Christmas address. Other church leaders were warned by the pope that the church doesn’t enjoy the authority it once did anymore, proposing they should stimulate followers to be more inclusive of other religions. This year perceived the papacy rocked by historical...

    On December 12, 2019 British voters sent a crystal-clear message that sent shockwaves through the political world: They want freedom (in the form of Brexit) and they do not want socialism (in the form of Jeremy Corbyn). How else can one explain the landslide victory for Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s pro-Brexit, anti-socialist Conservative Party, which won 43.6 percent of the vote—the highest percentage by any British political party since 1979?Adding insult to injury, the Conservatives won a net gain of 48 seats in Britain’s House of Commons while Corbyn’s anti-Brexit, pro-socialist Labour Party suffered a humiliating defeat. The Labour Party...

    Where did the Trump impeachment go? When House Democrats began selling tickets to their President Donald Trump Impeachment Theater — shouting their outrage, preening on those late-night talk shows — it was much meatier business. It would be full of collusion with Russia, blackmail of Ukraine, it would contain extortion and go heavy on bribery. The way the Democrats sold it, Americans were to expect some giant roast, bone in, with a rich, thick gravy, to feed a nation longing for justice from Orange Man Bad. At least, that’s what Democrats promised. But that’s not what they delivered for consideration...
