  • Democrats Just Can’t Win The ‘Respect’ of Donald Trump voters

    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.” If only they cast off their snooty liberal elitism and show respect to people who voted for Donald Trump, Democrats can win them over and take back Congress and the White House. The assumption is that if Democrats simply choose to deploy this powerful tool of respect, then minds will be changed and votes will follow. As a voter says in “The Great Revolt,” a new book by conservative journalist Salena Zito...

    A police body camera video leaked to Contact7 Investigates shows the son of Denver Mayor Michael Hancock using a slur against an Aurora police officer during a traffic stop. “My dad’s the mayor, you f---ing f--got,” Jordan Hancock is shown saying in the video clip. “Of Denver? Well you’re in Aurora,” the officer responds. “Guess what, I’m about to get you fired you f---ing b---h,” Hancock is heard saying later. The video clip sent to Contact7 Investigates by an anonymous source is only about 20 seconds long and ends with 22-year-old Hancock driving away. Denver7 requested the full video from...

    Whether you know it or not, you are at war. It’s not a shooting in the street war, at least not yet, but it is a war. Specifically, the people in charge have decided to wage war on segments of the American society. To paraphrase the late historian Christopher Lasch, the managerial elite has turned their back on average Americans and opted instead for a ruthlessly cosmopolitan view of life, one that values rootlessness, internationalism and transience. Increasingly, their ends are in direct conflict with liberal democracy. Another way of looking at this is that the managerial elite has reached...

    Former President Barack Obama (I love the adjective preceding his title) made some comments at the recent Global Opinion Leaders Summit in Japan that I can't let slide, so please forgive me. "It used to be that the two political parties in the United States would disagree but there was a common base line of facts and a set of norms in terms of political behavior that were followed. ... You could have a disagreement, but basic things got done. ... And some of the reason for that is ... it used to be that in the United States, there...

    At the risk of being called cold or harsh, let me begin by saying every American has a right to his/her opinion on just about any issue. Including guns. Now that we’ve got that out of the way, let me add this: the people playing partisan politics on the graves of the 17 innocent dead people from Douglas High School are despicable. I don’t care what age they are. Over the last couple of weeks, a variety of conservative voices have gotten in trouble for insinuating that the anti-gun protesters coming out of Douglas High School seem far too practiced...

    Our nation’s elites are waging war on the American people, wielding the institutions they’ve spent several decades capturing to punish those who disagree with their preferred positions and to deny them the ability to speak publicly, all in an effort to stifle free and open debate. And no, this isn’t a George Orwell novel — this is the United States of America.While many still mistakenly view our political arena as a skirmish between “liberals” and “conservatives”, it would be more accurate to describe it as an all-out war between “elitists” and “populists”. As my late friend Jeff Bell argued in...

    Do they really hate ordinary people that much? Yes, they do. For liberals, the distinction between the "dumb masses" and their enlightened selves renders life meaningful. Disdain for ordinary folks is not just an ancillary trait of liberalism. It is fundamental to the its nature. At its heart, liberalism is a gnostic religion, and the essence of that religion is the believer's faith that he possesses the means of changing the world for the better. The belief that the world must be changed requires there to be a mass of individuals whose lives are in need of change. Following this...

    "My fury has been bottomless. I drink my morning coffee from a cup that says, "I hate to wake up when Donald Trump is President." The constancy of my outrage has been exhausting, yet I have not yet found a way to quell it — nearly each day has brought a new reason to stoke the fire. But a day with my daughter, communing with the angry and the aggrieved, seemed a good way to try."

    America was founded to be free and democratic -- unlike England with its monarchy and rigid class system. While classes will always be with us, only in America is class mobility possible and likely. Over our two-hundred and forty-two years, millions of people have become successful because they were not bound to the economic plight to which they might have been born. Americans do not care about the state of one's birth. They revere hard work, invention, imagination, and success. Success, to most Americans does not necessarily connote great wealth. In this country it means having a work ethic, work...

    Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said Friday that he was not aware that the World Economic Forum was considered a gathering of the "global elite." "I didn't realize it was the global elite," Mnuchin said at an event in Washington. "Actually, I've looked at the list. There's an awful lot of world leaders, there's an awful lot of finance chairs, there’s an awful lot of business people." "This is an important economic agenda," he added, arguing that the gathering in Davos, Switzerland is just like any other conferences, like the annual Group of 20 summit.

    Hollywood, media, music industry, and political left-right Humanists are incapable of suspending their will-to-power, arrogant egotism fueled by an erroneous sense of 'moral' and 'intellectual' superiority or their scientism and evolution idolatry and a priori hatred of and contempt for President Trump, faithful Christians and Jews, middle class Conservatives, and the Christian-grounded America of its founding. Thus they are incapable of objectively considering the possibility that the ideology they religiously affirm is an unholy mixture of fantasy, scientism, lies, and evil and that a Scientific Dictatorship (NWO) – a global conspiracy run by super wealthy Western Luciferians and other pagan...

    It was déjŕ vu all over again as the Washington Post, who has endorsed his opponent in the Alabama Senate race, brought forth 40-year-old sexual molestation accusations against Judge Roy Moore. From Clarence Thomas, to the Duke lacrosse team, to the University of Virginia rape case, to Herman Cain, we have heard such charges before and the rush to judgment that follows. Moore’s accusers issue the boilerplate caveat that if the charges are true, he should exit the public stage immediately in shame and certainly that is true. Then they quickly throw him under the guilty-as-charged bus that just ran...

    Hollywood is full of Weinsteins, men whose erotic imaginations are fueled primarily by humiliation, who glut their sensibilities with the most exquisite refinements of shame. A journalist once told me about visiting another very famous Hollywood producer—you’d know the name—who exhibited for my friend his collection of photographs of famous female actresses—you’d know their names, too—performing sexual acts for his private viewing. As with Weinstein, this man’s chief thrill was humiliation, and the more famous the target the more roundly it was savored: Even her, a big star—these people will do anything to land a role; they’re so awful, they’ll...

    “Liberal, socialist elitists” are running the National Football League (NFL), ten-year NFL veteran Burgess Owens tells CNSNews.com. Interviewed by CNSNews.com on the Conservative Commados Radio Show, Owens, who won a Super Bowl with the Oakland Raiders in 1980, was asked how he thought Pete Rozelle, the NFL commissioner during his playing days, would have reacted if players had protested the National Anthem at games. Owens said that players were held to higher standards then, as the league was still in the process of branding itself as an “All-American” product:That was a time in which the NFL was being built.

    In a series of videos constituting a campaign for truth, the NRA is making clear it is out to expose the violent tendencies of liberal elitists and to defeat those elitists at the ballot box and in the public arena of ideas. The pivot toward elites represents a marked shift in the NRA’s Second Amendment strategy, as it means they have moved from simply fighting anti-gun legislation to fighting the talking heads, the academicians, and the wealthy, erudite leftists who pump ideas into legions of gullible anti-gunners. So the NRA warns that liberal elitists are prone to actual violence and...
