  • When Do We Get To The Last Straw?

    But, one of these days, I swear that big, good-natured fella, the ARMY of conservatives here in America, will have had enough and finally reach his last straw. Then, surely he will turn and fight It was when I was a kid in junior high that I came to the end of my patience with bullies. At thirteen, I was an easy-going young man closing in on 6 1/2 feet tall. On the way there, a lot of my smaller (most all of them were) peers discovered that I would take a lot of ribbing and silently absorb it or...

    In our increasingly divided and partisan society, it appears that some forces are stepping up their efforts to silence others, shutting down debate rather than taking part in it. It's a mark of folks who know they have no winning argument, so therefore have to project, obfuscate and name call rather than actually address issues. Snowflakes! This is nothing new, but in the Trump era – in which the losing side of the 2016 presidential election still thinks of itself as the side of goodness despite increasing evidence to the contrary – U.S. President Trump's efforts to drain the deep...

    Germany has asked the new US ambassador in Berlin, outspoken Trump loyalist Richard Grenell, to clarify his reported comments on website Breitbart that he wants to “empower” European conservatives. A German foreign ministry spokesman said Berlin had “asked the US side for clarification” and that its state secretary Andreas Michaelis would revisit the issue at a pre-arranged meeting with Grenell later this week. Grenell, who took his Berlin post less than a month ago, was quoted by Breitbart London as speaking about his excitement at a “European groundswell of conservative policies” that had come because of “the failed policies of...

    There's a great scene in the movie Witness where a bunch of bullies start picking on some Amish farmers, and then they pick on Harrison Ford, who is sporting Extreme Mennonite drag. They knock off his straw hat, laugh at him, and then he beats the crap out of them.The bullies are shocked, stunned, and bewildered. Why, he’s not supposed to fight back! Why, the Amish, they’re better than that! But Harrison’s not. As his buddy says, he’s from Ohio.I am not better than that either. How about you?Because today, being “better than that” means being willing to allow other people...

    More than 20 prominent figures in the conservative movement plan to send an open letter to Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), urging the Freedom Caucus member to declare himself a candidate for Speaker “at once” to replace Paul Ryan. Axios has obtained a letter — circulated by Ginni Thomas, longtime leader in the conservative movement and spouse of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas — stating that current House Republican leadership "has utterly failed" and "proven that it’s part of the Swamp," and that Jordan is the solution. Richard Viguerie, Chairman of ConservativeHQ.com, and Jenny Beth Martin, Chairman of the Tea Party...

    The King, Queen and Joker of Social Media’s False Gods Overlooked in the aftermath of thousands of conservative casualties left behind by the brutal social media truck drive-through: Many who are (infuriatingly to social media giants) still standing; still being followed by those who will still go looking for their favorite sites on the now pothole-warped Information Highway. Long before Facebook be-knighted itself as the ‘Hate Speech Killer of All Time’, people saw through the phoney claims of prominent users like former President Barack Obama deceitfully claiming more than 45 million fawning fans. Social media has been in cahoots with...

Suddenly, a terrorist with a huge rusty knife comes around the corner, locks eyes with you, screams obscenities, raises the knife, and charges at you yelling “allah akbar!” You are carrying a Kimber 1911 .45 ACP, and you are an expert shot. You have mere seconds before he reaches you and your family. What do you do? A Democrat’s Answer Well, that's not enough information to answer the question! What is a Kimber 1911 .45 ACP?

    Former Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards said in an interview published this week that she thinks conservatives have an “advantage” because they are “so much more willing to lie, cheat, steal, deceive, break the law — tactics that frankly we don’t use in the progressive community.” The Department of Justice confirmed in December that Planned Parenthood is under federal investigation in the wake of allegations the abortion chain harvests the body parts of aborted babies to sell for a profit. In an interview with Salon, Amanda Marcotte asked Richards why she believes “nonprofits like Planned Parenthood” have experienced an “escalation...
  • UC Berkeley: ‘Hard to defend’ free speech of conservatives who ‘incite’ liberal students

    The Washington Times ^ | May 4, 2018 | Douglas Ernst -
    A long-awaited report on free speech protections at the University of California, Berkeley, blames “hard to defend” conservative speakers for inciting left-wing students to violence. A commission of Berkeley faculty, students formed in 2017 after violent and costly student protests called its commitment to free speech into question. Their months long study of the issue resulted in the conclusion that “ultra-conservative rhetoric” by the likes of Milo Yiannopoulos and Ann Coulter only exists to “advance a facile narrative that universities are not tolerant of conservative speech.” “Contrary to a currently popular narrative, Berkeley remains a tolerant campus,” the report says,...

    Facebook on Wednesday confirmed that it is bringing in two outside advisers to help it run an audit of the platform's effect on communities of color and to offer advice on the social media giant's alleged bias against conservatives. The new advisers come shortly after Facebook dealt with reports uncovering how its ad platform could allow discrimination and charges from Republican lawmakers that Facebook censors conservative opinions. The so-called civil rights audit, which was first reported by Axios, will be led by the Director of the ACLU's Washington Legislative Office, Laura Murphy. D.C.-based law firm Relman, Dane & Colfax will...

Thor, a conservative who has voiced criticism of Trump, made the announcement in a series of Tweets. According to Federal Election Commission (FEC) filings, however, Thor has not filed to run for president.

She told Breitbart News Senior Editors-at-Large Rebecca Mansour and Joel Pollak that some of her clients have been “blackballed” by “supposedly neutral hiring platforms.” Dhillon said, “I’ll have some troubling developments next week about people’s job searches and how I believe Silicon...

    As for liberals: Well, guys, check your privilege. Try to really imagine what it might be like to have a conservative identity when cultural products almost all skew liberal. That is, to be one of the few acceptable villains for all the movies and jokes and television shows. To see your viewpoint systematically excluded and slighted. To have your daily life, your beliefs, routinely handled with ignorance and insensitivity.

    FULL TITLE: Senator Tim Scott Unloads on Facebook: “What Is Unsafe About Two Black Women Supporting the President?” Senator Tim Scott (R-SC) is a member of the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions. On Tuesday the committee met as Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg was meeting with senators on Capitol Hill. Tim Scott took time out of his committee to address Facebook and why the company believes two black women supporting Trump are “unsafe for the community?” In a bit of irony, I’m posting video from our HELP Committee hearing today. As I’m sure many of you know, Mark...

    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) grilled Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg Tuesday about whether or not the social media platform was biased against conservatives. Zuckerberg acknowledged that Cruz raised a “fair concern” but insisted that Facebook was committed to being a “platform for all ideas.” "There are a great many Americans who I think are deeply concerned that Facebook and other tech companies are engaged in a pervasive pattern of bias and political censorship," Cruz said. He read off examples of Facebook suppressing conservative speech, starting with former Facebook employees admitting to suppressing conservative news in May of 2016. Cruz brought up...

    Imagine the horror if the post office took letters you sent and instead of delivering them, secretly threw them in the trash. That’s what I strongly suspect is happening on social media networks like Twitter, Facebook and others — run by activist liberals — who appear to be discriminating against conservatives. It’s called “shadow banning” or “stealth banning” where users’ posts are blocked from appearing in followers’ news feeds. I fear this type of deceptive censorship is happening to me, as well as scores of other conservatives throughout the country — including Prager University, an educational company whose ads promoting...

    With all the talk about Twitter shadow banning conservative commentators, National Review's Jim Geraghty wondered whether the social network also had the gall to go after conservative politicians. So he looked at the number of retweets and likes Senator Ted Cruz's tweets receive on average and compared them to California Democratic Senator Kamala Harris. Harris has only half of Cruz's followers: 1.5 million versus 3.2 million. As such, you'd expect Cruz to be retweeted more often by his followers. Surprisingly, that's not the case. But that's not even the most shocking part. Look at the difference; it's gigantic. Texas Republican...

    U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said on Thursday she shares incoming national security adviser John Bolton’s disdain for the world body and believes the two will work well together. Bolton, who was U.S. envoy to the United Nations for President George W. Bush, will become President Donald Trump’s national security adviser on Monday. He once said it would make no difference if 10 floors were knocked off the U.N. headquarters in New York. “I know John Bolton well. I have gotten advice from him, I have talked to him. I know his disdain for the U.N. I...
