    There's No Racist Like A Liberal Racist. Europe is currently getting bombarded with Muslim refugees. Brit Pat Condell gives us his enlightened view on anti-white racism as only Professive Libs can deliver it.

    iberals can’t be happy with simply ruining the lives of decent conservatives for cheap political gain. They have to ruin hamburgers, too. The burger is the ultimate Normal food, and horrible liberal elitists are trying to screw it up with lame alternative burgers because they are terrible. Let me be clear, to quote an awful ex-president: Nothing I write here is open to debate. I’m turning the epistemic closure thing back on the libs. It is impossible to disagree with my ground beef rantings, and if you do, you are racist, sexist, and a burgerphobic cisdinner hate criminal of hatred....

    There is this thing called due process, where someone accused of something has a right to defend himself, except liberals don’t like it very much. They sometimes play lip service to it, but only when it has to do with covering for the criminals they consider victims of society. You Normals are “society,” by the way. But regardless, when it is politically useful to let super-convenient accusers trash people from a distance by feeding talking points to eager media allies, forget due process. Allowing someone to effectively challenge fake charges gets in the way of the liberal elite’s ability to...

    The “Resistance” has morphed into the “Lynch Mob.” Having successfully been gaslit into believing Donald Trump is everything from a bad joke to a Russian spy, the Progressive left in the U.S. are embracing all the totalitarian impulses their grabby little hands can find as they climb the Cliffs of their Insanity to remove him from office. This putsch is orchestrated by a now open conspiracy of members of FBI, CIA, MI-6, DNC, the U.S. corporate media and Trump’s own staff in the Oval Office as evidenced by the recent and infamous New York Times op-ed. This expose from a...

    The Democratic side of Congress is almost certainly going to look a little different after the midterm elections this year, as a result of the success of women and minority candidates in primary contests. Race by race, they've begun to make inroads into the traditional white and male establishment of national politics. The victory of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in the Democratic primary against New York Rep. Joe Crowley -- a ten-term incumbent and the fourth highest-ranking Democrat in the House -- has been a beacon for other outsider progressive women and minorities trying to defeat entrenched Washington incumbents. **SNIP** Massachusetts' 7th...
  • Telling People God’s Okay With Abortion Is A New Low For Abortion Supporters

    The old argument that defends abortion now has a new twist. This time, it’s wearing a clerical collar. It’s not enough these days to champion abortion by mere reason. Trying to convince women that ending a pregnancy is actually a shame-free “positive good” is starting to ring hollow as well. So now the latest wave in promoting abortion comes from a most unlikely source. A social ethics professor of religious studies at Elon University makes her case for declaring that abortion can actually be considered Christian. Rebecca Todd Peters writes in her new book, “Trust Women: A Progressive Christian Argument...

    Self-described "ass-kicking, motorcycle-riding, Texas Democrat" MJ Hegar, a candidate for Texas’ deep-red 31st district, has a novel approach to environmental politics: she doesn’t care if her supporters believe in man-made climate change, but says it's hard to deny the corrupting effects of petroleum dependence on American foreign policy. "Our dependence on foreign oil is just so damaging to our country on so many levels," Hegar told ABC News in a June interview. "I respect other people’s freedom to be discerning and to make their own decisions. But they can’t deny that the U.S. military pays the price for our dependence...

    Did you know that the tomato is a fruit? It actually is, you know. It certainly does not taste like one today. Though, it really used to. Tomatoes used to be sweet and delicious. That is, until the 1920’s in the United States. What in the world was going on then? All that damned “Progressivism” and trying to change America into a utopia ruled by a benevolent wealthy class. Nonsense. Oh, yes. They implemented the Federal income tax, and they banned alcohol and did all kinds of things (like giving the right to vote to woman) to turn the world...

    The Takeout ^ | 26JUL18 | Kate Bernot
    Hunting for decent beer stock photography is, for me, one of the most frustrating parts of writing about beer. Most of the available beer photos on stock sites look like they came from a mid-’80s encyclopedia entry on Bavaria: pretzels, leiderhosen, frosty mugs, blonde women with their chests out. I’ll finally find a nicely lit, well-composed image, only to see that the beer glass is dirty. Or the bartender is pouring the beer improperly. Or I can’t find a dark beer poured into anything except a pint glass. And if I want women or racial minorities in the shot? That’s...

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who scored an upset victory in a congressional primary over Rep. Joseph Crowley, D-N.Y., in June, visited lawmakers in Washington, D.C. on Tuesday **SNIP** The candidate held separate meetings with Reps. Raul Grijalva, D-Ariz., and Mark Pocan, D-Wis., and had lunch with Rep. Ro Khanna, D-Calif., the report said. Ocasio-Cortez said that her visit was designed to "get the lay of the land" in Washington. She is widely expected to win in her heavily Democratic New York district in the November election, the report said. She is on board to "translating" her win to help other Democrats around...

    Tourist hotspot Amsterdam turns into a "lawless jungle" after dark with the police powerless to intervene against crime and violence, the city's ombudsman warned in an interview Saturday. "The city centre becomes an urban jungle at night," Amsterdam's official ombudsman Arre Zuurmond told Dutch daily Trouw, warning of illegal car and bike races zooming through the streets, open drugs sales and general mayhem. "Criminal money flourishes, there is no authority and the police can no longer handle the situation," he warned. Some 18 million tourists flock to Amsterdam every year -- more than the entire population of the Netherlands. ETC...

    Democratic National Committee chairman Tom Perez lavished praise on Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez recently calling her “the future of our party.” After the 28-year-old progressive candidate unseated House Democratic Caucus chair Rep. Joseph Crowley in an upset in New York’s 14th Congressional District, candidates across the country are looking to her for inspiration. ABC News spoke with a few of them about their visions for the upcoming primary elections and the nation.

    Rabbi Ya'akov Yakir, of the “Torat Hamedina” (“Torah of the State”) program at the Beit Orot Yeshiva, published a study that found that under Supreme Court Chief Justice Aharon Barak, the state recognized adultery as a bond that was no less legitimate than marriage. This means that if, for example, a married woman maintains an intimate relationship with a man married to another woman, the man may sue the woman for the alleged commitment she made to him in the context of their relationship, or vice versa. "There are two families here," he explained. "We claim in the study that...

    House Minority Leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi scoffed Wednesday when asked if the victory of self-described Democratic Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez over House Democratic Caucus chair Joe Crowley (D-NY) in New York’s 14th congressional district demonstrates a change in party leadership is needed. A partial transcript follows: REPORTER 1#: “Republicans are saying one of the things this [election] shows is that Democrat Socialism is ascendant in your party. Are they right about that?” REP PELOSI: “No, they’re no. It’s ascendant in that district, perhaps. I won’t accept any characterization of our party presented by the Republicans. Let me reject that right now....

    An Oklahoma congressional candidate has apologized after he was caught taking his opponent’s campaign signs from a street corner -- just before the state’s primary election. Tom Guild, who bills himself as a progressive Democrat vying for Oklahoma’s 5th congressional district seat, was accused in a Facebook post of taking the signs of Kendra Horn, also a Democratic candidate. The Facebook post, which has been shared more than 100 times, included photos of Guild allegedly caught in the act. “Sometimes in the heat and rush of the campaign, mistakes are made,” Guild said in a statement to The Oklahoman. “On reflection, removing some...

They are indoctrinating young minds throughout the West with their resentment-ridden ideology. They have made it their life's mission to undermine Western civilization itself, which they regard as corrupt, oppressive and “patriarchal.” If you're a taxpayer—or paying for your kid's liberal arts degree—you're underwriting this gang of nihilists. You're supporting ideologues who claim that all truth is subjective; that all sex differences are socially constructed; and that Western imperialism is the sole source of all Third World problems. They are the post-modernists, pushing “progressive”...

    An admitted pedophile and convicted felon who spent more than a year in prison for threatening to kill President George W. Bush is legally able to run for Congress in Virginia this year because of a 2016 decision by then-Gov. Terry McAuliffe to restore voting rights to thousands of felons. Nathan Larson, 37, of Catlett is running as an independent candidate in Virginia’s 10th Congressional District. He has expressed pro-pedophilia and incest views, and, in an interview with HuffPo this week, called it “normal” for men to be attracted to underage women. According to Larson’s campaign platform, he is for...

  • (NJ Gov.) Murphy: Raising gas tax (again) not popular but necessary

    It’s not the news New Jersey drivers wanted to hear. This week we got word that gas tax collections have fallen behind expectations in the Garden State, which means the gas tax could be increased by 3 or 4 cents a gallon this fall. When lawmakers approved a plan to hike the gas tax almost 23 cents a gallon back in 2016 in order to fund the Transportation Trust Fund, the law was written in such a way to guarantee that a predictable level of revenue would be generated every year. If gasoline sales dip, according to the law, the...
