  • An Establishment Conservative’s Guide To The Alt-Right

    Breitbart ^ | March 29.2016 | Milo Yainnopoulos
    A specter is haunting the dinner parties, fundraisers and think-tanks of the Establishment: the specter of the “alternative right.” Young, creative and eager to commit secular heresies, they have become public enemy number one to beltway conservatives — more hated, even, than Democrats or loopy progressives. The alternative right, more commonly known as the alt-right, is an amorphous movement. Some — mostly Establishment types — insist it’s little more than a vehicle for the worst dregs of human society: anti-Semites, white supremacists, and other members of the Stormfront set. They’re wrong. Previously an obscure subculture, the alt-right burst onto the...

    Various people have asked me why I will not vote for Stephen Harper and the Conservatives in this election. While the Cons’ failure to seriously tackle the deficit, reduce the size of government and begin to dismantle the Liberal state are all good reasons, I probably would hold my nose one more time if it were not for one, fundamental fact: C-51. And I might have even given Harper a pass on C-51 if I didn’t know the Conservative record on free speech, the perversion of the Human Rights Commission and the legal thuggery which attended it.

    The most effective way to ensure women get paid as much as men is for women to be prepared to “work harder” and seize any opportunities that may come their way, actress Stacey Dash told TV host Meredith Vieira on Wednesday. One tactic that is not useful, Dash said, is complaining and making excuses. “I feel like it’s an excuse. It’s the same thing with race. It’s an excuse. Stop making excuses. If there are opportunities, be prepared for them — and be the best if that’s what it takes. If you have be extraordinary, then be extraordinary.”

    The "Third Way" ideology is much more than just 'another way' of doing things. Rather, it is the specific ideology of the political elite and their multinational industrial paymasters. And, if you study this ideology closely, you may soon learn the real reason behind all those very oppressive laws, rules and regulations coming out of Washington these past few years. Simply put, the intent of the "Third Way" ideologues is to design a classed society -- made up of us worker serfs and our elite controllers. To do that, it is necessary that the elite have general control over money,...

    Washington Post ^ | November 18, 2014 | Chris Cillizza
    Watch Fox News Channel or listen to Rush Limbaugh these days and you will get a very large helping of Jonathan Gruber, the MIT professor whose comments about the "stupidity" of the American people in relation to the passage of the Affordable Care Act has reignited political debate over the law. Gruber is quite clearly conservative catnip. But why? The key to understanding why Gruber has become a cause celebre -- but not in a good way -- for conservatives is that his comments about the ACA confirm two things that the right has long believed about Democrats and the...

    AUSTIN – Gov. Rick Perry was indicted on two felony counts for abuse of official capacity and coercion of a public servant late Friday by a Travis County grand jury. The case stems from Perry’s vetoing the $7.5 million biennial funding for the Travis County Public Integrity Unit last year. He threatened to withhold the money unless District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg resigned. In announcing the indictment, special prosecutor Michael McCrum of San Antonio said he felt confident of the charges brought against the governor and was “ready to go forward.”

    The American Thinker ^ | May 23, 2014 | John Bennett
    Every conservative should consider the profound and possibly awful observation made by the New York Times’ Josh Barro (italics added): The rush to stand with Mr. Bundy against the Bureau of Land Management is the latest incarnation of conservative antigovernment messaging. And nonwhites are not interested, because a gut-level aversion to the government is almost exclusively a white phenomenon. If there were validity to Barro’s observation, then any anti-government political philosophy (that wished to survive) would seek to reduce immigration. After all, America is rapidly importing economically poor, poorly educated, low-skilled immigrants. Those immigrants generate racial inequalities, and inequality is...

    If more businesses (and elected officials) were to embrace a vision of creating real value for people in a principled way, our nation would be far better off—not just today, but for generations to come. I’m dedicated to fighting for that vision. I’m convinced most Americans believe it’s worth fighting for, too.

    Friends of Abe, a private group of conservatives in Hollywood's TV and film industry, hosted an evening with actor and former Republican presidential candidate Fred Thompson at an undisclosed location in Los Angeles Thursday night, The Hollywood Reporter learned Friday. Thompson screened for 50 members of the group his upcoming film, Persecuted, about a Christian televangelist who is framed for murder by government operatives because he refuses to bow to the will of a powerful U.S. senator. The filmmakers call it a "religious thriller."

    The Tea Party zealots who haven’t learned from their mistakes in 2010 and 2012 are trying their best to screw up the GOP’s chances to win the Senate this fall. Where does the Tea Party find these people to run in primaries? Most important, why do they offer them up as legitimate Republican candidates? The Tea Party bosses have been listening to too much talk radio. They seem to think that what makes a good Republican candidate is someone who sounds like a talk radio host. But talk radio is all about bombast and attracting callers, not about winning elections....

    Matt Damon’s new sci-fi blockbuster 'Elysium' has received a deluge of criticism that it is pushing a socialist agenda - inspired by the Occupy movement - down moviegoers’ throats. Set in the year 2154, ‘Elysium’ imagines a world where the wealthy elite have abandoned an overcrowded Earth for a better life aboard a luxury space station. While Earth is characterized by crime-riddled and poverty-stricken slums, the super-rich live in Elysium, an exclusive gated community in space complete with a cure for all illnesses and robots that enforce strict anti-immigration laws. The extreme disparity between the haves and have nots in...
  • Russia: Anime Banned as Child Pornography

    MOSCOW – Russian Federal Service for Supervision of Communications has banned the distribution of the Japanese “hentai” cartoons. Reason for banning are 13 episodes published on the Russian social network Vkontakte, Voice of Russia reported. Hentai is a genre of the Japanese animation (anime) which as basic elements contain erotic or pornographic scenes. First complaint on the anime Russian Federal Service for Supervision of Communications received in April, but at the time there were no competent experts of the cartoon evaluation available. As the result, outside experts made an expertise and rendered the verdict: hentai is a child pornography. Analyst...

    I remember back in the 70's one of the primary conservative organizations was the Americans for Constitutional Action. They were the conservative answer to the Americans for Democratic Action just as the Committee for the Survival of a Free Congress was conservatism's answer to the National Committee for an Effective Congress. Yet I have never found the organizations's official web page or even heard it mentioned in decades. It doesn't even have an article in Wikipedia. Does anyone know whatever became of the ACA?

    National Affairs ^ | Spring 2013 | JAMES C. CAPRETTA
    American electoral politics suffers from wildly unrealistic expectations about the power of elected officials — especially the president — to determine the nation's economic performance. The American economy is not managed in any real sense: It is, by and large, a free-market system operating within a complex global marketplace. Of the forces that affect our economy, far more are outside the president's control than are within it. And to the extent a president can shape the economy, the effects of his decisions will often become apparent only after he leaves office. Still, there is no getting around the importance of economic issues to voters,...

    American Spectator ^ | 1.23.13 | QUIN HILLYER
    The political right communicates wrong(ly). The depressing spectacle of Barack Obama inaugurating a second term should not obscure this truth: Conservatives win on issues. They lose in elections because they don’t know how to frame the choices, even on those many issues on which the majority of the public is in their corner. Consider the most recent poll numbers. Gallup on abortion: “Would you consider yourself to be pro-choice or pro-life?” Answer: 50 to 41, pro-life. Gallup on whether government “is trying to do too many things that should be left to individuals and businesses” or instead “should do more...

    Standpoint ^ | November 2012
    When thinking of Canada, I strongly doubt that the first thing to pop into most people's heads would be "bastion of political conservatism". Yet in this liberal country, prime minister Stephen Harper has carved out an impressive reputation as one of the world's most successful centre-right leaders. Through two minority Tory governments (2006 and 2008), and since May 2011 at the head of a majority government, Harper has balanced strong leadership with a confident domestic and foreign policy agenda. Canada may be a middle power, but our prime minister will accept nothing less than a seat at the top table.
