    Mark my words ... If the left ever gets another foothold in our land (and I believe they may) we will NEVER see our liberties or safety ever again On the peaceful drive home from Santa Fe, going the back way up through the San Luis Valley to Colorado Springs, I caught an AM radio program that was wafting in and out from some town in the southwestern United States. The sun was setting. I was alone on the highway. And the saged prairies dotted with dark juniper cedar trees were rolling by in front of high mountains covered in...

    Depths of Pentecost ^ | March 10, 2018 | Philip Cottraux
    By Philip Cottraux In George Orwell’s 1984, all freedom is a thing of the past and the world is run by an authoritarian government known as Big Brother. People live under misery and oppression, every move they make being watched carefully by the sinister party, INGSOC. Every room of every home is equipped with a telescreen that monitor’s one’s every move, the slogan “Big Brother Is Watching You” playing over and over again. Even showing a facial expression of slight disinterest over one of the Party’s big announcements can cause one to be arrested for suspicion of “thought crimes.” Our...

    The Atlantic ^ | 1/1/2017 | Ariane Tabatabai
    The protests that have rattled Iran this weekend are in many ways an echo of the near past. In the summer of 2009, millions of Iranians took to the streets to protest the reelection of President Ahmadinejad. The opposition believed his reelection victory was fraudulent. They chanted slogans demanding a recount of the votes. Others denounced the regime and its highest authority, Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei. Hardliners and security forces confronted the crowds with anti-riot gear and harsh condemnation, often labeling them agents of foreign powers. It was a huge moment and seemed, at the time, to portend an irreversible...

    Full title: Leftist Group that Gets Millions from U.S. Offers to Pay Legal Fees of Arrested Tax Reform Protesters A leftist nonprofit that offered to pay the legal and transportation expenses of tax reform protestors receives tens of millions of dollars from the government, according to records obtained by Judicial Watch.

    There’s a common quote, frequently attributed to G.K. Chesterton: “Don’t ever take a fence down until you know the reason why it was put up.” In our modern context, this should be rephrased a bit: “Don’t try to pull down a statue if you have no idea who or what the statue was really about.” During a 2016 Columbus Day protest conducted by Wunk Sheek, a Native American student organization, activists at the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus hosted a “die-in” at Bascom Hall, near a statue of President Abraham Lincoln.  According to The Daily Cardinal, a campus newspaper, the protest...

    OK, the headline’s a little misleading in that it appears some women will always feel compelled to dress as vaginas while protesting, while the more demure will settle for the Women’s March pussy hat. So it’s actually kind of refreshing to see people dressed as dinosaurs marching on Washington for a change.

    Seconds after President Trump’s Monday remarks finally calling out the KKK, neo-Nazis, and white supremacists by name, CNN hosts and panelists made clear that there was nothing Trump could have said that would have satisfied them, excoriating him for not going far enough and announcing “policy in terms of addressing this.” Inside Politics aired during and immediately after the President’s statement and Bloomberg’s Margaret Talev got the first crack, slamming Trump for not doing “outreach to people not white or who might feel that they were on the victimized end of the message that the protesters were carrying.”Never Satisfied: CNN...

Police arriving on the scene declared the protest on Friday an "unlawful assembly" and told demonstrators to disperse, video footage of the gathering shows.

    The First Amendment right to protest the government ends when you use a bolt cutter to breach a security fence and enter a restricted area, a federal judge told six people he found guilty Wednesday for their actions during a chaotic protest outside last summer’s Democratic National Convention in South Philadelphia. “A fence is a fence is a fence,” Senior U.S. District Judge Michael J. Baylson told the six out-of-towners after finding each guilty of trespassing on restricted federal grounds, a misdemeanor. “As a matter of common sense,” said the judge, “when an adult sees a fence, it is clear...

    The Hill ^ | Rachel Bovard
    On a rainy Tuesday afternoon last week, the Heritage Foundation was mobbed by more than 200 liberal protestors. They stormed our lobby, chanting and banging on bucket drums, and gathered outside, holding signs and a bullhorn. They were well-organized, with facilitators in orange vests directing people where to stand, and a media team, allegedly prepared to talk to any press (though, notably, they refused to talk to our own Daily Signal). What were they protesting? It soon became clear that many of them didn’t actually know – they’d been bussed in, told they were going to “an undisclosed location.”  
  • Yale's College Republicans hold BBQ near a hunger strike to increase protesters' anguish

    Most union-busting techniques are explicit, like legal challenges and anti-union campaigning. But when all else fails, go for the gut. Yale University's local College Republicans chapter held a barbecue on Friday near the fasting site of campus union organizers participating in a hunger strike directed against the university. Bragging about the wafting, delicious smells on Facebook, it appears to have been a move to torment the fasting grad students, who have thus far gone days without food in a protest for their worker's rights struggle. "It'll taste (and smell) delicious!" the event description said on Facebook. The tactic drew comparisons...

Well, guess what? A pair of leftwingers have confirmed in the April 26 Washington Post that protesters are indeed paid.

    Liberal protesters stormed the Washington, D.C., headquarters of the conservative Heritage Foundation on Tuesday — but the demonstration backfired when Heritage later took to Twitter using the event to promote one of its policy papers. Just before noon, around 200 protesters marched up to and inside the conservative organization’s Capitol Hill offices. Within about 20 minutes, however, they were gone, the Washington Examiner reported. The protesters voiced their opposition to President Donald Trump’s proposed budget blueprint. Congress has not yet voted on a 2018 fiscal year budget but is expected to do so by Friday night to keep the federal...

    As a regular reader, you would know that after the election I spent some time investigating the Alt-Right which was supposedly a major force in the Trump election.  My column put a damper on the relevance of this group despite all the hoopla.  Since the election, the Black Bloc has become a major disrupter in our country yet it is barely written or spoken about.A friend asked me if I was aware of the group which in itself speaks volumes. The group traces its roots back to Europe during the 1980s.  It had its most pronounced debut in the United States during...

    There were numerous reports from those on the scene that Berkeley police largely stayed back as Antifa agitators took pot shots at Donald Trump supporters on Saturday. “As the violence escalated police in Berkeley stood down and retreated from the crowds,” reporter Tim Pool tweeted. - snip - At one point, several black-clad agitators isolated a lone Trump supporter and pummeled him with fists and feet. Someone jumped in and clubbed him with a skateboard. Here’s an aerial angle: (video at the link).
  • Trump takes route to Mar-a-Lago that misses Tax March protesters

    President Trump on Saturday reportedly took a longer route than usual on his way back to his Mar-a-Lago resort in what reporters said appeared to be an attempt to avoid large crowds of Tax March protesters. According to pool reports, Trump's motorcade made a long loop to get back to Mar-a-Lago after leaving Trump International Golf Club around 1:30 p.m. Meanwhile, reporters traveling separately in press vans that continued on the shorter route back to the luxury resort immediately encountered "hundreds of protesters" demanding the president release his tax returns. One White House reporter tweeted a video of the route...
