  • What is Progressive Derangement Syndrome?

    Crisis Magazine ^ | December 12, 2016 | JAMES KALB
    I noted recently that educated and well-placed people today tend toward a stripped-down view of man and society that redefines family, religious, and communal ties as private preferences, thereby erasing their public importance. The effect is to promote exclusive reliance on the social authority of bureaucratic and commercial arrangements.The existence and sentimentalization of non-binding private connections, such as marriage as it is now understood, doesn’t affect that result. After all, how much reliance can be placed on connections that are thought to have no intrinsic function and can be dissolved at will?The tendency naturally concerns Catholics, because it leaves no...

    Does she not know that Trump assured Carrier that he'll reduce the regulatory climate and lower taxes across the board, which will help not only Carrier but all American businesses overall. How is this crony capitalism? As far as tax credits or subsidies are concerned, those came from the state of IN. The point is, is that now's not the time to be engaging in this self-defeating crap. Trump already got his hands full by fighting off Hillary from stealing the election from him and walking on eggshells while Obola is still in the WH. Discuss this privately with Trump...

    Sarah Palin is criticizing President-elect Donald Trumps deal with Carrier, even as she is reportedly under consideration to serve as Trump's secretary of Veterans Affairs. In a op-ed in Young Conservatives published Friday, the former Alaska governor first expresses excitement for the Carrier employees whose jobs are staying in Indiana. What a relief for hundreds of workers, she wrote. Merry Christmas Indiana! But she goes onto to blast the deal as crony capitalism" and an example of the "hallmark of corruption" and "socialism." When government steps in arbitrarily with individual subsidies, favoring one business over others, it sets inconsistent, unfair,...

    Conservative blogger and broadcaster Erick Erickson joined Glenns radio program Wednesday to discuss the political landscape and the upcoming 2016 RedState Gathering in Denver, Colorado. When Glenn asked Erickson how we could put the fractured alliance between conservatives and libertarians back together, Erickson expressed his doubts on this happening anytime soon. All the people who supported Trump in the primary are mad at the establishment. They hate the Republicans in Washington, Erickson said. Whether Trump wins or loses, these are going to be the Republicans still in charge, and Donald Trump has already said hes perfectly happy cutting deals with...

    Editors Note: Erick Erickson gushed over Bill Clintons speech at the Democratic National Convention on Tuesday night, which was universally panned. The party of family values has just nominated a man on his third wife with numerous affairs and they are pitting him against a woman whose husband routinely cheated on her, but they kept their marriage together. Republicans are prone to cast aspersions on the Clinton marriage. They did it for power or she stuck to him for her own benefit are the most common ones. But in a day and age where marriages crumble and kids wind up...

  • Theres no Trump without Palin: Meghan McCain scolds conservatives for backing Trump

    05/06/2016 11:35:22 AM PDT · by ChicagoConservative27 · 125 replies
    Donald Trumps coronation as the GOP nominee will present plenty of opportunities for Republican amnesia and short-sightedness. The easiest thing to do, if youre a conservative Republican, is to dismiss Trump as an aberration, as if his candidacy emerged out of a whirlwind. But thats the work of revisionist historians, not honest observers of the last decade of Republican politics. Consider this recent tweet by Meghan McCain, the daughter of John McCain and now a commentator for Fox News: I hope history remembers those who gave up their conservative principles for the cult of personality and celebrity. And those who...

    Donald Trump is sending Sarah Palin, one of his best political surrogates, to the Wyoming Republican State Convention, in an effort to woo delegates to his campaign. On Saturday, Wyoming State Delegates will select the remaining 14 delegates to represent the party in Cleveland. Twelve delegates were already selected at partys county caucuses in March. Three other delegate slots go to the partys national committeeman, national committeewoman, and the chairman of the Wyomings Republican Party. Trump is anxious to stop the flow of delegates to his rival Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) 97% . In Colorado, Cruz swept all 34 delegates...

The onetime vice presidential candidate has been tapped to preside over a new reality court show that would premiere next year. She signed a deal in February with Montana-based production company Warm Springs, a source close to the process tells PEOPLE.

    Houston Politics Examiner ^ | March 18, 2016 | Mark R. Whittington
    Thursday, the rise of Donald Trump as a malignant political force was the cause of an outbreak of Sarah Palin Derangement Syndrome in the mind of a writer from Chicago named Steve Chapman. Chapman draws a direct line between Trump becoming the frontrunner for the Republican presidential nomination and the rise of Palin as a political force of nature when she was selected as John McCains running mate in 2008. Palin, you see, is simply Trump in a skirt, something that may be hard for the rest of us to imagine, despite the fact that the lady from Alaska has...

    In an epic battle of former governors who also fell a few percentage points short of the White House, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin responded to former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romneys feature-length attack on Donald Trump in true Palin fashion: with a Facebook post. Palin, who endorsed Trump in January in spectacular fashion, warned Trump not to take the bait: The machines deception and nonsensical attack on Trump isnt really an attack on the candidate, its an attack on conscientious, hardworking, patriotic Americans who know we need a revolution to stop the complicit politicians who are fundamentally transforming America.

    JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) A high-profile endorsement from former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin couldnt deliver this state for Donald Trump as Ted Cruz won the Alaska Republican presidential preference poll. Cruz, a U.S. senator from Texas, edged the national GOP front-runner in Alaska for his third win of Super Tuesday. Trump was still the nights big Republican winner with victories in seven states. U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida, who finished third in Alaska, won one state. The other two candidates on Tuesdays ballot in Alaska John Kasich and Ben Carson did not garner enough support to win...

    Here are more signs Sarah Palin could face an uphill battle with PBS host Gwen Ifill. Professor Sherrilyn Ifill of the University of Maryland Law School, whom Gwen Ifill has lauded as "my brilliant baby cousin," has written that black women are not buying Sarah Palin's "false claims to feminism" and is portrayed as too perfect: "when women who are privileged present as though they have it all together, it's offensive to black women." The Community Times, a suburban Maryland newspaper, found Professor Ifill was ardently opposed to the Alaska governor when they did an e-mail interview: "From the first...

The #TrumpTrain rolls on, full steam ahead to Super Tuesday. To all GOP beltway bellyachers crying (literally) this marks the "end of the GOP" or the people’s vote for Trump is "bad for democracy," how about you try something new this morning: use your noggin and examine the facts. The fact is, Trump’s independence, commonsense conservatism, experience, success, and refreshing candidness attracts voters. But most significantly, his message INSPIRES AMERICANS! We CAN win again!...

    Bristol Palin's former fiancé took to Facebook Tuesday to announce that they have finally reached a custody agreement over their son, Tripp Johnston, now 7. In 2009, Levi announced that he was going to sue his high school sweetheart for joint custody of Tripp after alleging that the entire Palin family was making it difficult for him to see his son. The exes reached a child custody stipulation in 2010, allowing Levi to see Tripp on Saturdays between 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m., and Wednesdays from 12:00 p.m. to 6 p.m. The court never approved Levi and Bristol's agreement, however,...

    Ex-Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin launched her political action fund, Sarah PAC, in 2009 with the stated purpose "to help elect principled conservative leaders" across the country. But the latest Federal Election Commission filing indicates that money raised in small contributions by Sarah PAC is going to consultants, speech-writing services, direct-mail appeals, as well as stays by Palin in fancy hotels. Sarah PAC raised $950,000 in 2015, spent a total of $1.4 million, and donated just 23,500 to 45 campaigns. It also...
