  • Black Intellectuals That Leftists Don’t Want You to Know About

    Over the past several decades, the left has convinced United States citizens that it is the only option for black and other minority voters. If any blacks dare to deviate from this narrative, they get labeled as an “Uncle Tom” or worse. Fortunately, for the benefit of America’s black community, many black intellectuals have risen to prominence who challenge the left’s perceived ownership of the black vote. And while I do not think the color of someone’s skin matters when seeking truth, these intellectuals provide a perspective and persuasive ability that can’t be matched by others. Thomas Sowell Perhaps one...

    On a friend’s Facebook thread, I recently posted the following. It was in response to a rather sanctimonious rant saying things defending socialism since Venezuela isn’t the only socialist country in the world. Also, the person asked if the millions going without health insurance in America mattered. Without the wealth that only free markets, free people and capitalism can create, there’s nothing to socialize. There’s nothing to redistribute. There’s nothing to steal or give away. Does that mean nothing to you? It should. Because in order to have wealth redistribution, you first have to get wealth! In order to socialize...

    The latest line of attack from liberals against Brett Kavanaugh, President Trump’s nominee for the Supreme Court, is knocking the judge for his “frat boy”-sounding first name. “We'll be DAMNED if we're going to let five MEN—including some frat boy named Brett—strip us of our hard-won bodily autonomy and reproductive rights,” the influential pro-choice organization NARAL tweeted Tuesday. Comedian Stephen Colbert of CBS’ “The Late Show” also mocked Kavanaugh’s name. “Now I don’t know much about Kavanaugh, but I’m skeptical because his name is Brett,” Colbert said during the monologue on his show Tuesday. “That sounds less like a Supreme...

    During a lecture at the Library of Conservatism in Germany, British philosopher Sir Roger Scruton described conservatism as a philosophy that recognizes and acknowledges that good things are easily destroyed but not easily created, such as law, peace, freedom, civility, the security of property and family life. He contends we depend on the cooperation of others for the aforementioned to exist because we have no means or ability to single handedly attain it. He states “the work of destruction is quick, easy and exhilarating.” “The work of creation is slow, laborious and dull.” For the African American, the journey from...

    Hollywood tends to pack summer with escapist flicks — popcorn movies that have little to do with the real world, unless you consider rampaging dinosaurs a pressing societal problem. But these five socially-conscious films are sneaking into cinemas, and each has something compelling to say. Sorry To Bother You This surrealistic comedy starring Lakeith Stanfield (Get Out) and Tessa Thompson (Creed) is earning rave reviews for wicked social satire that touches on race, class and capitalism. Stanfield plays Cassius Green, a telemarketer in Oakland whose career takes off once he adopts a “white” telephone voice with customers. Reviewer Kam Williams...

    "Faris’ response to the Normalcy program is that there is no value in conserving a burning house. The endangered state of American liberal democracy, he argues, calls for emergency steps from Democrats and the left. They should take advantage of legal and constitutional silences to “transform American politics in a lasting progressive direction,” Faris writes. “Doing so will require party leaders to pursue policy changes that will be ridiculed by their opponents as outrageous affronts to democratic decency and received by their own voters with puzzlement or even shock. They need to do it anyway.” The list of those changes...

    They come in all different disguises. * Protesters disrupting the Mexican restaurant meal of a Cabinet Secretary, forcing her to leave. * The owner of an innocent-sounding “Red Hen” restaurant in Lexington, Virginia boasting that she refused to serve the presidential press secretary Sarah Sanders and asked her to leave. Sanders quite politely did. Now we learn from Sanders’ Dad, Governor Mike Huckabee, that when Sanders did as requested and went to another nearby restaurant — the angry Red Hen owner followed and kept harassing her. (Note: At press time I had heard that Sanders herself was present at another...

    Dear America, the societal left has declared war on you.While you’ve been busy enjoying your new jobs, improved wages, lower taxes, and less government interference in your life the left has decided that all of those things are immoral. They must be undone. And those who enjoy them must be made to understand that they are not good American citizens, but some sort of participant to hurt others. They would love to say it makes you a racist, except that African Americans and Hispanics are enjoying the best economy they’ve ever known in American history. They would love to say...

    Leftists have a long history of exploiting children to advance the left's political agenda. The most recent case is the left's screeching about the fact that when illegals are arrested for trying to sneak into the country, their children are separated from them. We know that leftists don't really care about this because it happened under Obama, and they said nothing. It even happened under Bush, and they didn't complain about it then, either, even though they hated Bush. Further, the children of American parents who are arrested for a crime are also temporarily separated from their parents. After all,...

    AN FRANCISCO — Chanting “Stop taking the children,” immigrants, activists and tech workers on Tuesday protested the Trump Administration’s hard-line immigration policies that are separating children from their parents at the Southwest border and causing outrage and debate on Capitol Hill and around the world. “I can’t stand to hear one of those children cry and we’re hearing thousands of them,” said Judith Gips, 61, who teaches immigrant children in King City. “We’re going to take these children’s cries to get together and make ourselves heard. We have to take risks ourselves to help people who have risked everything to...

    Even before Donald Trump won the White House, there were strong indications that something was not quite right with the Liberal mindset. Today, all doubt on the matter has been cleared away. The mass hysteria that swept across Liberal America, like one giant tear tsunami, following Hillary Clinton’s ‘surprise’ loss in the 2016 presidential election has reached a new level of madness and can now be described as a deep-seated psychosis. There are some understandable reasons for the Left’s collective mental breakdown. Briefly, ‘Russiagate’ is disintegrating into a burlesque theater of the absurd, while Trump – from jump-starting the Heartland’s...

    On Dan Bongino's podcast yesterday (6/19/2018) he discussed a subject that I have been pondering for some time: Why does the FBI seem to be so top heavy with Leftists? Mueller is a Leftist. Comey, the #1, is a Leftist. McCabe, the #2 is a Leftist. (Priestap I don't know about.) Strzok (Lead agent in both the Hillary Email Scandal and the Russian Collaboration Investigation!!!!) is a Leftist. And so on. I included Mueller for obvious reasons, though not in the FBI when all this went down. That is a high powered cabal of Leftists...why are there so many? I...

Coulter also said President Trump should not fall for the "child actors" as he faces pressure to end his zero-tolerance policy at the border, which has resulted in parents being separated from their children so that they face immediate deportation. “I would also say one other thing, these child actors weeping and crying on all the other networks 24/7 right now — do not fall for it, Mr. President," Coulter said on “The Next...
