  • No Country for Old Politics (How to Define the Right in a Left World)

    traditionalRight ^ | 9/18/2013 | Paul Gottfried
    The task before me is explaining with appropriate distinctions and qualifications “What is right and what is left?” For those who wish to avoid the harangue of an activist, let me assure them that I do not equate “conservative” with Republican or with the viewing habits of FOX News devotees. Being a Republican and dutifully reciting party talking points is for me no sign of being on the right; nor is a disinclination to do either indicative of being on the left. A classical or essentialist Right is hard to find in the contemporary Western world, where journalists and other...

    "Caring and Sharing" -- The Claim and the Bane They tell us that they care more than we do. Isn’t that the key, the sum total of the American Left’s argument, when you boil it down? They care. They care so much, they remind us every day how MUCH they care. More than the moderates, more than the independents. And they accuse the Right of not caring at all, of being terribly heartless in the face of illness and want and crime. And this they use to win election after election, and to force all sorts of policy changes on...

    NEW YORK – The political left is coming out “screaming,” with “guns blazing,” in an attempt to dampen the audience for the highly anticipated film “America: Imagine a World Without Her,” its maker told WND just before its Hollywood premiere. Dinesh D’Souza recalled that the left’s strategy with his first political documentary, “2016: Obama’s America,” was to ignore it. “You would almost not know ’2016′ existed if you just followed the leftist press and their Internet blogs,” D’Souza told WND in an exclusive phone interview. “It was only when the pied piper Obama came out yelling that everybody else on...

    This is the second part of the article "The Looting of Italy" by Italian journalist Alessandra Nucci. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ How the Looting WorksI will venture to suggest that there must be a blue-print out there on how to manage a country after a revolutionary takeover, such as what has been done to Italy (and to Venezuela? Cuba? China? Russia?) I would say that basically, after A) overwhelming the system (the Cloward-Piven strategy), the revolutionary leader will aim at B) impoverishing the middle class in order to prevent its every chance of rebelling. This can be done in various ways, which...

    I imagine the horrified shrieks that rose from the streets outside the Supreme Court on Monday as the decision in the Hobby Lobby case began to filter out into the crowd of liberal observers was reminiscent of those poor souls who watched helplessly as the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire claimed the lives of 146 young, female garment workers. In fact, the similarities are eerie. It seems that liberal commentators have convinced themselves that, just as was the case in 1911, the courts and the country have deemed women to be of lesser value than their male counterparts. The distinction...

    One of the current liberal cliches tells us “whites” are privileged. The color of their skin evidently bestows benefits others do not receive. They are therefore supposed to be grateful and defer to those who are less fortunate. But in what does this “privilege” consist? Yes, whites have not been discriminated against the way African-Americans have. They have not been denied jobs or forced to drink from separate fountains because of the pigmentation of their epidermis. This is surely an advantage — but how big an advantage? Charges of white privilege make it sound as if every Caucasian is automatically...
  • Morgan criticizes Kobach for working with Nugent on Texas bill to kill feral pigs from helicopters

    Republican secretary of state candidate Scott Morgan on Thursday took aim at incumbent Kris Kobach for helping rocker and gun rights activist Ted Nugent and Texas officials pass a law making it easier to hunt feral pigs from helicopters. "The self-appointed Guardian of State Sovereignty needs to stop shooting pigs from helicopters in Texas with Ted Nugent and start focusing on his job in Kansas," said Morgan, of Lawrence, who will face Kobach in the Aug. 5 Republican Party primary. Morgan and other critics of Kobach say he spends too much time advocating around the country for anti-illegal immigration laws...

    Most conservatives, and just about all independents, have a huge misperception of the left. They think that the gulf between conservatism and leftism is primarily about means, not goals. This perception is wrong. It is their goals that are irreconcilable. And until conservatives, independents and the Republican Party understand this, it will not be possible to defeat the left. Take economic indicators. Most conservatives talk and act as if bad economic news disturbs the left as much as it disturbs them. It doesn't. Almost everywhere the left is in control -- in California, for example -- the economic news is...

    The Left adores its "racism" narrative. It is practically the only narrative they have left, and they have used it repeatedly like a cheap prostitute at a party for sex addicts. One of the cheapest political whores on the national scene is Dirty Harry "Cleanface" Reid, the ignoble, utterly corrupt U.S. Senate Majority "Leader." Harry has now added his wormy voice to the cacaphony of leftist sluts calling Cliven Bundy "racist." Let's get our facts straight. The Left is able to promote this narrative for two main reasons: 1. they lie. 2. the media repeats the lie. So let's dissect...

Political correctness is increasingly morphing into a more hideous monster hiding just beneath the surface.  Fully abandoning the decades-old dream of a classless society, the Left is embracing its opposite:  a caste system, complete with pedigrees, credentials, and the benefits of membership in the ruling caste.  Of course, this caste system places the progressive elite at the top, as...

    In his column last week, Charles Krauthammer crossed a line. He declared the American left totalitarian. He is correct. Totalitarianism is written into the left's DNA. Krauthammer wrote about a left-wing petition "bearing more than 110,000 signatures delivered to the [Washington] Post demanding a ban on any article questioning global warming." He concluded: "I was gratified by the show of intolerance because it perfectly illustrated my argument that the left is entering a new phase of ideological agitation -- no longer trying to win the debate but stopping debate altogether, banishing from public discourse any and all opposition.

    A preferred ploy of left-wing change agents is to ridicule critics when they point out the undeniable parallels between the goals of today’s “progressive” movement, to include the Democratic Party in general, and the goals of the early, and very much still alive, communist movement.If, for instance, one mentions the historical fact that nearly every adult who, at any time, was in any position of influence over a young, soon-to-be-radicalized Barry Soetoro was an avowed communist, to include his own parents, then one is immediately mocked and dismissed as a neo-McCarthyite hack pining for the bygone days of the Red...

  • The Left, the Right, and the Communist Agenda

    The history of all ancient societies is the history of class struggle. In each of these we find a complicated arrangement of people into various social, economic, and political orders. Ancient Rome had its patricians, knights, plebeians, and slaves. During the middle ages there were three orders; oratores, bellatores, laborares: this translates as "those who pray", "those who fight", and "those who work". In the 20th Century we have manage to simplify class antagonism via two distinctive groups who are hostile towards and in direct opposition to each others. They are known simply as The Left, and The Right. Therein...

    The concept that the whims of public opinion, the fads of the moment, or the opinions of an ideological opponent should fundamentally alter what a particular political party stands for has always seemed rather odd to me. It is an argument I see trotted out in articles from Left leaning sites on a regular basis. The argument is always, without fail, that the Republican Party needs to become more like the Democratic Party. Yet the reverse is never suggested for consideration. Great "concern" is showed time and time again by often very radical and liberal writers, as well as general...

    Indeed, in the example of guns, they expressly believe that some firearms possess quantifiably greater evil than others, depending entirely on their appearance, despite being lifeless objects. An equivalent belief would be that a paring knife is certainly evil, but a carving knife is purely demonic. To a rational person, such an unhinged thought process more than merely hints at lunacy. Inanimate objects do not possess inherent evil. It can’t be built in, absorbed or grown inside a gun. In fact, the only things on Earth that have that ability are people. And yet, despite living in a world defined...

We are more than 22 years removed from the dissolution of the Soviet Union and the end of the Cold War. All that remains are the Stalinist museum pieces of North Korea and Cuba, the former an isolated country known mainly for its absurd dictator and starving population, the latter a beautiful island stuck in a 1950s time warp due to backwards economic and social policies. Even China, the one major power still ruled by...

    The reemergence of a Democratic left will be one of the major stories of 2014. Moderates, don’t be alarmed. The return of a viable, vocal left will actually be good news for the political center. For a long time, the American conversation has been terribly distorted because an active, uncompromising political right has not had to face a comparably influential left. As a result, our entire debate has been dragged in a conservative direction, meaning that the center has been pulled that way, too.

The lessons people draw from history go a long way toward explaining how they view the world and how they behave.

Speaking at a Washington, D.C., book store last Friday, Ayers explained that despite living near Obama in Chicago’s Hyde Park neighborhood and crossing paths many times during their activism, he never viewed the future president as a dedicated “leftist” like himself. The remarks came in response to a question about whether Ayers ever doubted Obama’s credentials as a true “progressive” or “man...

The phrase is brilliant. There is actually no threat to America of fascism coming from the right. The essence of the American right, after all, is less government; and fascism, by definition, demands ever larger government. Therefore, if there is a real fascist threat to America, it comes from the left, whose appetite for state power is essentially unlimited. But because the left has so long dominated...

    Roger Sperry won the Nobel Prize in 1981 for his work on what is now commonly known as right brain-left brain thinking. Sperry theorized that some very specific activities were controlled by one side of the human brain or the other — for example, the right side controlled creative tasks, while the left side was where logic, language and reasoning lived. People were fascinated by the idea, and in the three decades since, bookstores, television, the Internet and college psychology classes everywhere have been filled with endless discussions of the differences between right-brain, left-brain, and whole-brain thinkers. (Ironically, Sperry’s...
  • FUNDAMENTAL TRANSFORMATION: Mark Levin’s sobering monologue

    The Right Scoop ^ | 7/16/2013 | Mark Levin
    Mark Levin talks about how the political party that was once invested in slavery and segregation is now invested in racism and is using it to divide this nation. He says the left never talks up this great country, rather they constantly try and tear it down and that’s what fundamental transformation is all about. It’s a very sobering monologue and one I would label a ‘must listen’:

    About the recent Birmingham mosque stabbings of 4, including a policeman, the TV said that it is not considered as a hate crime. This simply means that the suspect, a man of Somali appearance, was not a non-Muslim, making him a Muslim (sounds a bit circumvoluted but this is what circumvoluted ways of thinking result in). But why? If you look at the way Muslims kill and massacre each other all over the world, especially those of rival sects, it looks like fellow Muslims are very much capable of hating a Muslim. On the other hand, a non-Muslim could very...

    For four years, leftists blamed the religious sector, and especially hareidim, for the double murder in Tel Aviv's Barnoar club, which caters to homosexual youths. A gunman opened fire on youths at the club, killing a young man and a young woman, and leaving others crippled. Now, police have arrested four people in connection with the attack. According to leaks, the police have solid evidence that the attack was carried out by a group of young men with criminal backgrounds in revenge over the alleged rape of their relative, a male youth, by the manager of the club. Leftists are...

    hey do not like conservatives very much. In fact, they come to an immediate boil when we enter their admittedly limited range of perception. It all began back in the 1960s when radical thought gained a footing with American liberals. By 2012, the left, led by their leader, the improbable president Barack Obama, completely took over the Democratic Party. These people are not like the liberals, who, while condescending to conservatives, did not hate us. These left-wingers really do hate us. That is why not much in the way of compromise can be achieved in Congress. I know we are...

    Media: Billionaire brothers with a free-market bent are said to be eyeing some big newspapers. The left is worried. Will this end a noble tradition of red ink and layoffs? As readers of Mother Jones and the Daily Kos will tell you, David and Charles Koch fund a vast right-wing conspiracy that has warped American political life and kept a boot heel on the neck of the 99%. So with power like that, why would the brothers want to buy struggling newspapers? Why not go after something with more of a future, like mobile apps? Whatever the reasons, the Kochs...

    Controversial Australian radio broadcaster Alan Jones is facing an online backlash after suggesting on national television that ‘left-wing radical students’ were behind the Boston Marathon bombings. The broadcaster added that Australia should reconsider its intake of foreign university students in response. According to the Sydney Morning Herald, in a segment on Channel Seven's Sunrise on Wednesday morning, the controversial 2GB host said Boston was a student city home to prestigious institutions such as Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), and suggested that students could be the culprits. Jones comments comes despite US authorities saying they do not...

    The Washington Post ignored the murder trial of abortion practitioner Kermit Gosnell until pro-life advocates raised such a ruckus it was forced to acknowledge it. Now the newspaper that acts as a frequent apologist for the pro-abortion movement is blaming conservative news outlets with a pro-life editorial stance for not covering it. The only problem is the Post has its facts wrong. It’s so wrong the Post may deserve a couple of Pinocchios or more, as it is famous for giving to politicos who bend the truth. As the newspaper claims: The charge of liberal media bias is perhaps undercut...
