    Ballot Access News ^ | October 17, 2018 | Richard Winger
    On October 16, a New York state trial court judge removed the Republican and Conservative nominees for Judge of the State Supreme Court from the November ballot. See this story. The basis was that the nominating conventions for this office, for these two parties, violated state law. The ruling says the parties may convene a new convention and re-nominate. New York elects State Supreme Court Justices from districts. This incident concerns the Fifth Judicial District, which, this year, is electing four justices. Although the Republicans have been removed from the Republican line and the Conservative line, they are still on...

  • The Wikipedia illusion: The problem is, anyone is allowed to edit material

    American Thinker ^ | 10/06/2018 | Lloyd Brown
    Wikipedia pretends to be a new kind of  crowd-sourced, non-profit “people’s encyclopedia” containing fair and unbiased material.  In theory, anyone is allowed to edit material, thus providing a wide range of input rather than one expert’s ideas as in conventional encyclopedias. I have written one entire entry, on my great-grandfather, who was a candidate for president. I have edited a few other entries to correct errors. The theory is great, but in practice Wikipedia, like most media ventures, is a vehicle for liberal ideas. Two examples may suffice: The Wikipedia entry on fascism follows the liberal line that the...

    Brinkwire ^ | October 1, 2018
    DONALD Trump supporters act like brainwashed members of a cult, an expert has sensationally claimed. Retiring Republican Senator Bob Corker recently described the party as a a cultish thing and his insight appeared to chime with many. The word cult conjures the idea of a brainwashed sect defined by a common deviant goals the most notorious of which are known by a single word such as Manson, Jonestown or Scientology. Dr. Janja Lalich, an expert on cults and extremist groups, argues Trump fits with this list. It is a very troubling time for America right now, and...

    Gov. Jerry Brown on Sunday signed a bill making California the first state to require public companies to have at least one woman on their board of directors to advance gender equality and help break the corporate glass ceiling. The bill, SB 826, by Sens. Hannah-Beth Jackson, D-Santa Barbara, and Toni Atkins, D-San Diego, was designed to combat bias against experienced, qualified female employees in the workplace. Yet another glass ceiling is shattered, and women will finally have a seat at the table in corporate board rooms, Jackson said Sunday on Twitter as she thanked the governor for signing the...

Top Reddit moderators made Big League Politics aware of the fact that The Great Awakening was banned Tuesday night at 11:45 PM. The subreddit has been down all day.

    Warning: This story contains graphic content Paul Welch came to the downtown protest Aug. 4 to let his political leanings be known. With pride he clutched his U.S. flag as he moved among the crowd of like-thinking demonstrators. Soon a group of black-clad anti-fascist protesters, also known as antifa, demanded he lose the flag, calling it a fascist symbol. Welch refused, and a tug-of-war ensued. It ended with Welch taking a club to the back of the head, lying on the ground in a pool of his own blood. Only Welch was not a Proud Boy, a Patriot Prayer supporter...

    Looking at the Washington Post’s August 15 op-ed warning that “the U.S. can’t afford to lose Turkey,” a casual reader might glance at the writer’s bio to find sparkling credentials – a former U.S. diplomat with long years of experience working on Turkish policy at respected think tanks. Yet among the crucial details that writer, former U.S. ambassador to Azerbaijan Matthew Bryza, left off the bio was his employment by companies based in Turkey under the influence of the powerful ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP). While this does not necessarily amount to a damning conflict of interest, Bryza’s article...

    Chris Cuomo: Antifa Violence Justified CNNs Chris Cuomo defended Antifas assaults on political opponents, calling it a justifiable tactic to combat bigotry. The attempt to equate this with Nazi Brownshirts beating up Jews and political opponents is unfair. The Nazis were bigots. Their victims were innocent. Antifas victims are the right wing bigots who support the bigot-in-chief who occupies the White House. Cracking their skulls is a socially beneficial use of violence for a good cause. In related news, CNN filed a motion to unseal the names and addresses of the jurors in the Manafort trial. The motion asserted that...

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass) is sponsoring legislation that would negate the control of corporate shareholders and transfer authority to government. Her billthe Accountable Capitalism Actis, in her words, intended to replace greedy profiteering with the more socially beneficial guidance of government oversight. The prime motive for the bill was her discovery that employees share of the income generated by businesses has fallen from 85% 20 years ago to only 75% today. As Karl Marx conclusively proved more than 150 years ago, all the value created by businesses comes from labor, Warren contended. It is shameful that any of this value...

    On August 12, 2017, a free speech rally arrived in Charlottesville to stop the removal of the statue commemorating Confederate General Robert E. Lee. Then a group of Neo-Nazis, white knights, alt-right trolls, white nationalists, and other white supremacists showed up. They wanted to protect the statue, albeit for different reasons. Then to counter-protest the white (not “Right”) supremacists, the violent left-wing Antifa hordes with their Black Bloc goons crashed the protest, and all hell broke loose. With protesters fighting to pulverize or protect the statue of a general who had headed one side of the American Civil War, another civil...

    The Political Correctness Police, starting with the perpetually victimized GLAAD (the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation) and a group called 50/50 by 2020, are trying to impose quotas on everything Hollywood does. Leftist fascism is not on the march. It is galloping. They are part of an open letter signed by titans of the Hollywood left that demands an "unprecedented cultural moment." They demand the entertainment elite "use its power to improve the lives of trans people by changing America's understanding about who trans people are." GLAAD claims there were no transgender characters in 109 movies released by major...

    Big techs coordinated purge of InfoWars which was hit by bans from Apple, Facebook, Spotify and YouTube in rapid succession did not occur in a vacuum. On this issue, Silicon Valley bowed to CNN journalists and Democrat politicians who ceaselessly lobbied for the site to be censored. Its a sign of how the concentration of power in America has shifted from big government to big tech that politicians are now lobbying tech companies rather than the other way round, but thats exactly what happened over the course of the past few months, as Democrats applied relentless pressure on...

    Rotten Tomatoes gives it a "0%" rating from critics. They also give very low ratings to movies life "Facing the Giants". So this type of rating was actually encouraging. The Left must really dislike it (usually they at least give 10% to 15% to make it seem somewhat fair, but they couldn't even do that this time.

    When Carinne Sjoberg dissolved the Jewish Community of Umea in northern Sweden, she knew it would send shock waves far beyond the small congregation that she had spent decades building. Neo-Nazis from the Nordic Resistance Movement, beginning in 2016, pasted stickers with fascist imagery on Umeas Jewish community center, making the place look like after Kristallnacht, Sjoberg said. The closure followed surveillance activity on the center by the neo-Nazis, who published details about individual visitors. I didnt take it lightly, Sjoberg, a 56-year-old Jewish mother of two, told JTA about the decision to close. I hate giving neo-Nazis this victory....

    It is hard to believe that the president of the United States is often accused of being a fascist by the same people who advocate harassing, assaulting, and censoring his supporters. But, that is exactly what is going on now. The political left is labeling anything conservative as hateful, bigoted, racist, sexist, homophobic, etc., to justify un-American suppression of non-left-wing views.

    Vermont is poised to require that all residents have health insurance. Republican Gov. Phil Scott late last month quietly signed into law a bill that will include a penalty for those who dont have insurance. The mandate is scheduled to take effect in 2020. A spokeswoman for the states largest private health insurance provider said the mandate provides stability. Nationally, many have rebelled against the idea the federal government could tell them what they needed to buy. New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy signed a similar law days later.

At one point Deutsch observed, If you vote for Trump then you, the voter, you, not Donald Trump, are standing at the border, like Nazis, going you here, you here. That scummy comment disparaging more than 60 million Americans, including a majority of Polk County voters in the 2016 presidential election, as akin to the pure evil of Adolf Hitlers murderous regime slid by the...
