    Will wonders never cease?Erick Erickson, one of the original leaders of the NeverTrump movement and the one who initiated the NeverTrump hashtag, has come out saying he will vote for the Trump-Pence ticket in 2020.Quoting Erickson: I will vote for Donald Trump and Mike Pence.And, to be clear, it will not be just because of what the other side offers, but also because of what the Trump-Pence team has done.They've earned my vote. My, my, my. Probably not many here care what Erickson has to offer.I don't.But look at his conversion as yet another straw in the wind pointing...
  • An Alternative to the Status Quo

    Had John C. Fremont not run as a Republican in 1856, there would probably would have been no Lincoln in 1860. The Republican Party formed in the 1850s with the collapse of the Whig Party. The central unifying issue Republicans shared was abolition of slavery. It unified people across political parties, bringing them together into something new. In the early 1990s, fueled by a single billionaire's calls for reform, the Reform Party sprang up under H. Ross Perot. He won 18.9 percent of the popular vote. The Reform Party, unlike the Republicans in the 1800s, was one man's party,...
  • No, Stop, No: MSNBC Host Goes Nuts When Confronted With Past Examples Of Violent Left Wing Rhetoric

    MSNBC Host Katy Tur got a little testy with conservative commentator Erick Erickson, who dared to bring up that the Left has become unspooled since Donald Trump's upset win over Hillary Clinton in 2016. Over the past few days, 13 devices that look like bombs have been mailed to prominent Democrats, including former presidents, and celebrities. We just had an arrest in Florida, but we don't know what their political leanings are, if any, or a motive. We don’t know. Yet, the liberal news media know exactly who it is: Donald Trump…and his supporters. We’re to blame for the Left becoming...

    I have long been critical of Republicans who abandoned principles to stand with Trump and I am as critical of Republicans who abandon principles to oppose Trump. Principle should stay because people go. The Kavanaugh nomination has been clarifying in this regard. Seeing some conservatives willing to aid and abet character assassins because Trump nominated Kavanaugh is disgusting. I find myself in an odd position where, for the first time, I see myself, one of the original so-called Never Trump conservatives, voting for President Trump in 2020. I have inevitably concluded at times that Trump would do something to push...

    President Trumps fight for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh is breaking up the Never Trump coalition of GOP leaders and pundits, many who are now uniting behind the president in advance of Saturdays Senate confirmation vote. Rocked by the wall of Democratic opposition no matter what evidence supporting Kavanaugh is presented and impressed with Trumps solid backing amid a brutal media attack, Never Trumpers are abandoning their opposition in a show of support for the man they once mocked. One famous Never Trumper even told Secrets that Trumps unwavering support for Kavanaugh, a long-time public servant who worked for former...

    So Brett Kavanaughs accuser has finally come forward: In a Washington Post piece, 51-year-old research psychologist Christine Blasey Ford says that she was sexually assaulted by the Supreme Court nominee in high school back sometime during the early 1980s. ...snip... This led to a predictable backlash on social media. It also led to a predictable phrase that appeared in a lot of tweets by prominent liberals. See if you can notice and figure out why NeverTrumper conservative pundit Erick Erickson thinks this was the work of a PR firm.

    A Bernie Sanders donor makes an accusation from 35 years ago with no witnesses. Democrats pounce. 38 years after Roy Moore did inappropriate things with Leigh Corfman, Corfman came forward publicly to the Washington Post and told her story. Democrats are citing Corfman as proof the GOP should treat accusations against Brett Kavanaugh from high school as credible. Except there are some major differences. Corfman told multiple people around the time Moore behaved inappropriately with her. Just because you did not read about it in the Washington Post does not mean she did not tell others at the time. Brett...

    Militant feminazi Liz Mair was forced to resign from the Scott Walker campaign Tuesday after Mairs radical pro-amnesty, pro-gay marriage, pro-abortion views went viral (SNIP) "She is very good at her job. She is also a friend of mine. I have known Liz for a number of yearsI am very saddened to see an organized effort by conservatives to have Governor Walker fire Liz Mairit is really appalling to see self-described Christians showing as little grace."

    On Saturday, conservative talker Mark Levin offered his top three picks to fill the vacancy on the Supreme Court left by the retirement of Associate Justice Anthony Kennedy. In a Facebook post, Levin named Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) as his first choice, followed by 11th Circuit U.S. Appeals Court Judge William Pryor as his second choice and Seventh Circuit U.S. Appeals Court Judge Amy Barrett as his third choice.

    Apparently the firings were done according to two criteria: Cost of contract and support for Trump. People whose contracts were expensive were almost all fired. People whose contracts were less expensive were either kept or fired depending on how pro- or anti-Trump they were.

    The Resurgents Erick Erickson, a conservative commentator who has been a Fox News contributor since 2013, is leaving the network, according to Politicos Jake Sherman. Erickson, whose commentary has been both fiercely critical of President Donald Trump and his opponents, said he is leaving the network because his views dont fit into any typical box. After five years at Fox News, I am leaving the network, he said, per Sherman. I am neither needed nor useful to the network and they know it too. I neither fit solidly as a Republican Trump supporter nor as an anti-Trump Democrat.

    Roy Moore will win the U.S. Senate special election, #NeverTrump-er Erick Erickson reluctantly concedes. Yet The Resurgent still feels compelled to attack the Republican nominee while muddying its prior position about the accusations. Of course, when he ran it, Erickson banned candidate Donald Trump from Red States national conference for similar reasons. The false allegations against Judge Roy Moore, aiming to derail his challenge to the establishment, are also revealing the fault lines between the genuine and the superficial throughout the conservative movement. Then Erick Erickson banned me on Saturday from The Resurgent while he was acting as the arbiter...

  • Never-Trumpers Are a Divided Minority

    President Donald Trump still has vocal Republican detractors. But they are laboring under two problems. The first, which has received a lot of attention, is that there arent a lot of them. In the latest Gallup poll, Trump has the approval of 82 percent of Republicans. The second, which has received less attention, is that this minority of Republicans is divided. Its divided on policy issues. Bret Stephens, Max Boot and Charles Sykes are all right-of-center commentators who want Republicans to dump Trump. But they also want gun control, sometimes of a sweeping nature. Other frequent Trump critics on the...

    Can you imagine if a Republican in the South warned against forcing integration down peoples throats? That is exactly what New York City Public Schools Chancellor Carmen Faria did in an effort to move an Upper West Side public school to a new location next to a public housing project. The school is 75% white and Asian with only 13% of students on the free lunch program. That 13% number stands out because the school is in a neighborhood where 48% of residents are low income. The public school is a high performing public school to which a lot of...

It is not a coincidence that within twenty four hours of Donald Trump giving a well received speech to congress that the New York Times runs a hit job on Jeff Sessions to distract from it, particularly after admitting the Obama Administration has been behind much of this disruption. Lets review what happened. During Jeff Sessions confirmation hearing, he had this exchange with Senator Al Franken. FRANKEN: OK.

    A lot of people who think Edward Snowden and Bradley Manning are American heroes are under the impression Donald Trump and members of his administration are traitors. Hollywood celebrities are openly calling for a military coup. Political commentators are comparing Donald Trumps election to 9/11 or Pearl Harbor because, allegedly and with no evidence, Russia stole the election. I would encourage you to read John Podhoretz on just how bad this situation could get. On the other side, more and more Trump supporters are treating the American intelligence community as the enemy. The president grows more suspicious of the intel...
