    Report: James T. Hodgkinson, Shooting Suspect, Belonged to ‘Terminate the Republican Party’ Facebook Group James T. Hodgkinson, the suspect in the shooting attack on a Republican baseball practice on Wednesday morning, was reportedly a member of a group called “Terminate the Republican Party.” Hodgkinson wounded four, including House Majority Whip Steve Scales (R-LA), before succumbing to his injuries sustained in gunfire exchanges with police. The Belleville News-Democrat, a newspaper in Hodgkinson’s former hometown of Belleville, Illinois, reports: The shooter who was killed during gunfire at practice for a congressional baseball game Wednesday morning was from Belleville. The shooter was James...
  • Safe Spaces are Detrimental to the Future of Society; and the “Progressive Pushers” Know This

    The advent of Safe Space on college campuses and public high schools is dangerous and was designed to make the next generation incapable of dealing with the real world. It is a long term project to ensure that more powers are given to Globalist governments because the individual will be incapable of managing the simple issues of daily life. What began as a project to “dumb-down” the population through grade school level television has moved on a stage. It is now important to ensure that the average citizen is completely incapable of dealing with the modern world. Part of this...
  • Leading liberals develop blueprint to expand 'deep state' and undercut Trump

    Washington Examiner ^ | June 10, 2017 | Ryan Lovelace
    Forlorn liberals took refuge at the American Constitution Society's national convention in Washington this week, discussing whether to encourage the growth of the "deep state" resistance inside the government or fight President Trump from outside. "The election of Donald Trump was an assault on the federal bureaucracy," William Yeomans said to a room full of students and civil servants, including those recently displaced by Trump's administration. "His values are simply not consistent with the values of people who are committed to public service and who believe deeply in the importance of public service." snip UCLA law professor Jon Michaels said...

    Although many of us were hoping and wishing that Hillary Clinton would magically disappear, we awoke Monday to the grim news that the witch did not get on her broomstick and fly off into a storm to never return. It seems logical she needs a cash infusion, perhaps a little relevance. With the loss of the presidency to Donald Trump, wealthy donors and foreign government contributors pulled out of their annual donations to The Clinton Foundation and the Clinton Global Initiative, which had been “in business” since 2005, closed its doors.

People wear gas masks next to the pipeline route during a protest against the Dakota Access pipeline near the Standing Rock Indian Reservation in St. Anthony, North Dakota, U.S. November 11, 2016. WRITTEN BY Matthew Sedacca May 07, 2017 A month before the 2016 US presidential election, Colin Waugh and his wife bought their first firearm. Donald Trump’s campaign was taking an unprecedented turn, with the candidate baiting gun-rights supporters to exert their influence and suggesting that a loss in November would be evidence of a rigged system....

    The Leftist Democrat Communist Party refers to themselves as, "Progressives," or, "The Progressive Party." The Shakespearean style headline fits this classic story of Dem-wit dumbness. A faithful reader, Wellnessdoc William Doell, who sends many overlooked articles to this column, dispatched one early this morning covering the newest political issue titled—we kid you not—Pee Privilege. Get your picket signs ready. Here is the headline: THE NOTORIOUS NORTHERN ARIZONA UNIVERSITY NOW HAS SIGNS OUTSIDE OF ON-CAMPUS RESTROOMS THAT ASK STUDENTS TO CONSIDER WHETHER THEY HAVE “PEE PRIVILEGE.”

    Most progressive groups oppose any expression of religion in the public square, and will likely oppose whatever this president does After President Donald Trump issued an executive order on religious freedom last week, the Left used its pre-written script to attack it even though it was dramatically scaled back from the draft that was leaked to left-wing media outlets in February. As if on cue, the Rev. Barry Lynn, president of Americans United for the Separation of Church and State, pounced, claiming the executive order “tramples” and “guts” the entire notion of religious freedom.

    The success of Marine Le Pen in the first round of the French presidential election has the global left resorting to its usual exaggerations and dire predictions of a fascist resurgence. As happened with the progressive smears of Donald Trump, Le Pen’s similar appeals to patriotism, national identity, and the need to defend the nation’s culture and interests are immediately turned into sinister dog-whistles for the crypto-fascists, racist hordes just waiting for the Great Leader to start the pogroms and fill the gulags. One hundred days into Trump’s administration, of course, nothing has happened that comes even close to beginning...

    In the age of “social justice” and other progressive creeds in prevailing Western discourse, the tragedies of millions of people in dozens of countries living under communist regimes are too often passed off as not being “real communism.” While many still view communism as a noble philosophy that may yet be implemented given improvements in technology or human nature, its ideological foundations depict not a utopian dream but a necessarily violent and destructive teaching. Since its emergence, communist ideologies have promoted violent revolution and brutal dictatorships far outstripping the worst excesses of non-communist governments. Today, the five communist regimes that...

    I just watched Season 2 , Episode 7, of Futurama, on Netflix. In this cute but endemically Leftist cartoon series, Richard Nixon is a recurrent character, always portrayed as a scientifically preserved, living head in a jar. He is always tricky, conniving, and stupid. But in this particular episode he runs for President in the year 3000. He is now depicted as one of the most typically evil, scheming, destructive personalities ever spawned. In fact—at the end—Nixon is ultimately transformed into a vicious, two-story tall, death cyborg who rampages around just killing people and crushing automobiles. He apparently does this...

    Progressivism has always been a quasi-religious faith, whose doctrines center on the perfectibility of man if only the educated classes (its very own priesthood) are able to command sufficient authority. Marxism, too, is a faith, one that denigrates other religions as the “opiate of the people.” Religions devolve into cults when they set themselves in opposition to the entire world outside their confines, and when they insist that their members hold unique insights and virtues, and so have a duty to shun and denigrate the “gentiles” (everyone else). Cult leaders understand that exposure to outsiders leads to a diminishment of...

    PROGRESSIVE CAUSE GREATER THAN ANY INDIVIDUALBy Theodore Roosevelt, October 14th, 1912 Just before entering the Auditorium at Milwaukee, an attempt was made on Colonel Roosevelt's life. The speech which follows is from a stenographic report, differing considerably from the prepared manuscript. - Editor's Note FRIENDS, I shall ask you to be as quiet as possible. I don't know whether you fully understand that I have just been shot; but it takes more than that to kill a Bull Moose. But fortunately I had my manuscript, so you see I was going to make a long speech, and there is a...

    The number of illegal immigrants handed over to authorities nationwide is less than 3 percent of what it was six years ago, thanks to a suite of sanctuary policies at the local level combined with a hands-off approach at the federal level in recent years. The New York and Los Angeles metro areas are the most popular destinations for illegal immigrants in the country. New York City has an estimated 500,000 illegal immigrants, according to the mayor’s office. New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio has vowed to oppose President Donald Trump’s executive order that promises to ramp up interior...

    Russell V. DeLong, Ph.D. was a noted educator and churchman who surveyed history, philosophy and goals of Communism- and provides an inspiring program of action that answers the question: "What can I do about Communism? " The interest of the author in Communism stems from two primary factors. First-because of his professional consideration of the subject in connection with his classes in Political and Social philosophy; and second, because of his world travels and experiences behind the Iron Curtains.

    All of these forces, individually or collectively, are simply not as smart, as savvy, as powerful, or as persuasive as President Trump and his minions. My bet has always been and remains on the dragon slayer! The original story of Saint George and the Dragon dates back to the 7th century, the narrative maintaining that in a fictitious town in Libya there lived a king who chose to appease the evil dragon in the town’s lake that was poisoning the countryside. With the agreement of his subjects, the appeasement involved feeding the dragon two sheep every day. But when there...

    One of the less understood criticisms of progressivism is that it is totalitarian, not in the sense that kale-eating Brooklynites want to build prison camps for political nonconformists (except for the ones who want to lock up global-warming skeptics) but in the sense that it assumes that there is no life outside of politics, that there is no separate sphere of private life, and that church, family, art, and much else properly resides within that sphere. Earlier this week, I expressed what seemed to me an unobjectionable opinion: that politics has a place, that politics should be kept in its...

    They hate you. Leftists don’t merely disagree with you. They don’t merely feel you are misguided. They don’t think you are merely wrong. They hate you. They want you enslaved and obedient, if not dead. Once you get that, everything that is happening now will make sense. And you will understand what you need to be ready to do. You are normal, and therefore a heretic. You refuse to bow to their idols, to subscribe to their twisted catechisms, to praise their false gods. This is unforgivable. You must burn. Crazy talk? Just ask them. Go ahead. Go on social...

    Donald Trump’s victory in November was not only the most important election result of our lifetimes, but ranks as one of the most significant events in recorded history, on par with the French Revolution or the fall of the Berlin Wall. And I’ll tell you why. Western society is super-saturated with leftist propaganda. Politically astute non-leftists see it everywhere and complain about it incessantly — because it is ubiquitous. In fact, most of our waking hours are spent noticing, commenting upon, getting outraged by and then futilely combatting the endless, relentless leftist slant to everything in modern culture. Every news...

    ItÂ’s the leftÂ’s secret weapon in the continuing resistance. While Facebook is getting a lot of the credit for making last weekendÂ’s WomenÂ’s March happen, a somewhat obscure tech platform called the Action Network was critical to organizersÂ’ efforts. And in the wake of that worldwide protest, the platform is already helping to push the movement forward. A nonprofit created by progressives who hoped to build a political movement with staying power, the Action Network offers tools for sending emails, organizing marches and events, fundraising, creating petitions, conducting surveys and connecting with other organizers. Activists who use the tools can...
