  • Can We Hope To Keep Our Republic When One Of The Parties Supports Tyranny?

    Think about this – a significant portion of our country, including a majority of its elite, thinks that it’s A-OK for a Democrat administration to spy on a Republican candidate. Think hard about that. And think about whether or not we can ever put the pieces of our shattered republic back together again if we can’t even agree that using government power against our political enemies is a bad thing.But the terrifying truth is that liberals and their Never Trump enablers actually think this kind of tyranny is a good thing. You see, they think Normal Americans are so transcendently...
  • Socialism is going mainstream, and Millennials are the cause

    A headline in The Hill captures a significant moment in American history: "Four socialist-backed candidates win Pennsylvania legislative primaries." The Democratic Socialists of America supported all four candidates, who will almost certainly win in November, given their lack of GOP opponents. The DSA itself thinks socialism's time has come: The DSA hailed the legislative victories as a huge moment for the socialist movement. Arielle Cohen, co-chair of the Pittsburgh DSA chapter, told HuffPost that she feels a "monumental shift" after the victories, noting DSA's growing membership since President Trump's election. "We won on popular demands that were deemed impossible. We...

    Democrats should stop trying to win over white Republican voters, according to several prominent liberal writers. That was the point of a column Washington Post writer Paul Waldman wrote on Tuesday, which liberal journalists approvingly circulated on social media, adding their agreement. Waldman blamed Fox News and conservative media for the fact blue-collar Trump voters dont vote Democrat. In the endless search for the magic key that Democrats can use to unlock the hearts of white people who vote Republican, the hot new candidate is respect,' Waldman snarked. If only they cast off their snooty liberal elitism and show respect...

    House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi indicated Tuesday that her party would like to roll back the tax reform law passed last year if they gain control of Congress this November. At a breakfast hosted by Politico, reporter Jake Sherman asked Pelosi to respond to a Republican ad that claims "you would like to institute a single-payer health care program and cancel [raise] taxes, I think they mean, roll back the tax cuts they passed this year." "Well, the second part there is accurate," Pelosi chuckled in response, before adding "I do think we should revisit the tax legislation in...

    Once again, Democrats like Kamala Harris fall silent when confronted with facts. The California senator was shredded on Twiitter by actor James Woods when she whined about illegal immigrants not getting critical health care. This is just wrong, Harris tweeted, linking to an article in the Los Angeles Times claiming that those who entered in to the U.S. illegally are afraid to seek medical care for fear of being deported.

    President Donald Trump is once again being attacked by liberals for voicing concerns about mass illegal migration but bizarrely, one of the lefts favorite media sources actually backs up his claims. On Thursday, the president pointed out that the stream of Central American immigrants currently headed through Mexico toward Texas is the site of many sexual crimes. (T)his journey coming up, women are raped at levels that nobody has ever seen before, Trump stated during remarks in West Virginia. They dont want to mention that, he said, suggesting that liberals are glossing over the harm caused by Hispanic immigration....

    A Brooklyn legislator was accused Wednesday of delivering a bizarre tirade against Jews, while ripping Mayor Bill de Blasio as a sellout, during a local community board meeting this week. Assemblywoman Diane Richardsons 50-minute rant during the Board 17 meeting Monday night faulted Jews for gentrifying in her district, which includes East Flatbush, Flatbush, Crown Heights and Prospect Lefferts Gardens, according to an eyewitness.

    Adding to the jeremiads from the phalanx of skin-color pimps and harlots is Latonia Westerfield. I happened upon an article by Westerfield titled: Why Black People Dont Need Jason L. Rileys Help. (March 25, 2015) Westerfield, as is typical with her kind, had her Hanes, Jockeys, Victorias Secret or whatever brand of unmentionables she wears in a Gordian knot because in her mind conservative Jason Riley had dared impugn the citadel of skin-color identity politics. The citadel Jason had besmirched was the cathedral of if youre black, youre a victim. Rileys book, titled Please Stop Helping Us: How Liberals Make...

    Every one of the 44 House Democrats who hired Pakistan-born IT aides who later allegedly made unauthorized access to congressional data appears to have chosen to exempt them from background checks, according to congressional documents. ..... Among the 44 employers, the primary advocate for the suspects has been Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz of Florida, who introduced a bill Monday that would require background checks on Americans purchasing ammunition. Without bullets a gun is just a hunk of useless metal, she said, calling ammunition the loophole in gun control policy.

    Democrats are concerned that illegal aliens will lose their elected representation following the 2020 Census, which will ask respondents whether or not they are United States citizens. Though American citizens living in states have had to deal with their votes being diluted by the votes of citizens living amongst large illegal alien populations for decades, Democrats remain worried for illegal aliens and their elected representation. Juan Escalante, an open borders activist, raised concerns for illegal aliens in the Huffington Post: This question about U.S. citizenship could have damaging effects on our nation. Not only would taxpayers see their states losing...

    On Sunday night, Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) shared one of the worst kept secrets of the Democrats: Hillary Clinton is a drag on the party. In a television interview, the embattled senator unloaded on the former first lady for dissing Donald Trumps base and dumping on Americas hinterlands. As McCaskill said, For those of us that are in states that Trump won, we would really appreciate if she would be more careful and show respect to every American voter and not just the ones who voted for her. Ouch. McCaskill is guilty of nothing but telling the truth. So long...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden reportedly warned House Democrats that President Donald Trump will win a second term if Democrats do not take back the House in November. If we dont win the House, Trump is there for eight years, Biden reportedly warned the stunned members of the House Democrats Blue Collar Caucus last week, according to a Politico report over the weekend. Biden reportedly added: Im serious. So, no pressure. Democrats are craving getting subpoena power to endlessly investigate the Trump administration. Some Democratslike Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA)are hoping that they can take back the House to start impeachment...

    Former President Barack Obama told attendees at a conference in Japan on Sunday that he is looking to shape a million young leaders in his image to help the human race. If I could do that effectively, thenyou knowI would create a hundred or a thousand or a million young Barack Obamas or Michelle Obamas, Obama told the attendees. Or, the next group of people who could take that baton in that relay race that is human progress. Obama reportedly made the remarks while discussing the Obama Foundations efforts to help young people around the world get connected to each...

    Senate leaders have added the Taylor Force Act to the omnibus spending bill after two Democratic senators blocked an effort to pass it as a stand-alone bill. The measure would cut off U.S. aid to the Palestinian Authority as punishment for its practice of paying salaries and benefits to terrorists and their families, including those who have murdered Americans. The Taylor Force Act boasts strong bipartisan support, prompting Senate leadership a few weeks ago to hotline the bill, which would set it up to pass by unanimous consent, a parliamentary procedure that expedites passage of noncontroversial legislation. If no senator...

    Earlier this week we looked at the growing chorus on the left seeking to make the idea of abolishing Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) a platform plank for the Democrats in 2018 and 2020. This relatively fringe idea has been rapidly picking up steam in the commentariat, even though they havent been able to convince potential POTUS candidates like Kamala Harris to endorse it. The clarion calls to excise ICE from the executive corpus have rung especially clear of late. First, an essay by Sean McElwee in the Nation last week probed whether an unaccountable strike force executing a campaign...

    The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit has agreed with the EEOC that a funeral home engaged in unlawful discrimination when it fired a male funeral director who was transitioning to female and dressing as a woman at work. The case is EEOC v. Harris Funeral Homes. The opinion is by Karen Nelson Moore, a Clinton appointee and one of the most left-wing federal appeals court judges in America. She was joined by Bernice Donald and Helene White. Donald, an Obama appointee, is also a far leftist. White was nominated by Clinton but blocked by then-Senator Spencer Abraham....

    'Jungle primary,' vote splitting could hurt Dems in effort to take seat held by Issa Pressure from national Democratic groups and state activists to support their candidate of choice and force other Democratic contenders to drop out is producing a backlash in the contest to control the Southern California congressional seat being vacated by Republican Rep. Darrell Issa. The Democratic infighting over the preferred party choice to run has intensified in recent weeks, echoing clashes between Washington's Democratic establishment and progressive groups on the ground in Texas for the chance to take on GOP Rep. John Culberson. A Democratic candidate...

    The so-called fact checkers at the far-left Washington Post are liars. Straight-up liars. Because here is what Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama actually said in favor of gun confiscation: Barack Obama, June 2014: Couple of decades ago, Australia had a mass shooting, similar to Columbine or Newtown. And Australia just said, well, thats it, were not doing, were not seeing that again, and basically imposed very severe, tough gun laws, and they havent had a mass shooting since. Our levels of gun violence are off the charts. Theres no advanced, developed country that would put up with this. Barack Obama,...

    How out of touch is the Democratic Party? This out of touch: The Washington Post reports that Democrats expected the Trump tax cut to be unpopular and are surprised to find that voters like seeing more money in their pay checks. Post reporter Erica Warner writes: Democrats predicted a political backlash for Republicans in December when the GOP pushed through a deeply unpopular tax cut that added more than $1 trillion to the federal deficit and disproportionately helped the wealthy. But at the outset of the 2018 campaign season, Democrats early optimism appears less well founded here [in Indiana], where...

    Union leader also tells rally-goers that powerful opponents "can go straight to hell" Massachusetts Sens. Elizabeth Warren (D.) and Ed Markey (D.) spoke at a Boston rally Monday supporting public-sector unions right to extract mandatory dues. These Democrats made the case that the Supreme Court should maintain government agencies right to mandate so-called fair share fees, Mass Live reported. They joined with union leaders to fight for the defendant in this case, the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME), Council 31, as the Supreme Court was hearing oral arguments about it. The senators from the Bay State...
