  • Similarities Between Traditional Conservatives And Feminists

    Chateau Heartiste ^ | February 6, 2016 | CH
    Tradcons and feminists have more in common than either would care to confront. Browsing popular alt-right outposts, I’ve found that a significant number of them — not all; I don’t mean this to be a sweeping indictment of the tradcon right — share with feminists a misunderstanding of sex differences and of the functioning of the sexual market (hint: it’s transactional in nature, and sneering at the messenger won’t change that fact).
  • Blue State Blues: Sen. Ted Cruz is 100% Right About Gang of Eight

    Breitbart ^ | 12/16/15 | Joe Pollack
    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) is being honest about his position on the Gang of Eight immigration reform bill in 2013. He opposed the bill, and he introduced an amendment to allow illegal aliens to gain legal status as long as they never became citizens with the right to vote. He did so to show that Democrats were more interested in new votes than in helping illegal aliens. He also did so to show there were conditions under which conservatives would accept immigration reform. That is the story Cruz is telling, and that is exactly how it happened. But Bret Baier...

    Congress has no right to moments of silence for victims of gun violence unless lawmakers intend to take action to prevent it, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) charged Thursday. "Gun violence is a crisis of epidemic proportion in our nation," she said during a press briefing in the Capitol. "We've had far too many moments of silence on the floor of the House. And while it is right to respectfully acknowledge the losses, we can no longer remain silent. "What gives us the right to hold moments of silence when we do nothing to act upon the cause of...

    Liberals continue to tell us the "vetting process" for refugees is under control. They insist the federal government is monitoring every Syrian once they make it to America. But, of course, that's a total fallacy. Earlier this week a Syrian refugee went missing in Louisiana. The refugee was in the process of resettling in the Baton Rouge area when he went missing. As The Hayride reported, there are seven Syrian refugees in Kenner, Louisiana and six more were sent to the New Orleans area. Louisiana state officials heard about the missing Syrian refugee from the media, and not the Obama...

    At least since the 2010 midterms, its been a liberal talking point that Republican extremism is to blame for political polarization and gridlock. In the old days, the argument goes, Republicans were a moderate party, but over the past generation the GOP has been gradually taken over by its far-right wing. Before the last GOP debate, for example, the Center for American Progress launched a Right of Reagan campaign to supposedly show how the extremism of todays Republican presidential candidates sets them apart from their conservative idol. But as the debates over issues like the $15 minimum wage, healthcare, and...

    Some conservatives are criticizing what they say is a media double standard after The Associated Press ran a photo of Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) with the picture of a gun in the background pointing directly at his head.

 “Imagine the outcry were he a Democrat,” said an editorial at the conservative news website Breitbart. “How many think pieces about violent imagery and responsible reporting would we see? How many more if he were a woman? Keep this in mind for the 2016 campaign. This is the playing field.”

    Republicans are debating whether their path to the presidency in 2016 runs through the blue-collar Rust Belt states, or the demographically changing new South and Sunbelt states. For Democrats looking to retake the Senate, however, the formula is more clear-cut: Win back white working-class voters, or be consigned to a longer-term minority. Most of the Senate battlegrounds run through the MidwestWisconsin, Pennsylvania, Illinois, Ohioalong with New Hampshire, which carries demographic similarities with those older, whiter Great Lakes states. To defeat the vulnerable Republican incumbents, Democrats have a challenging task ahead: Making inroads with blue-collar voters, who have been stubbornly resistant...

Scott Walker will sign so-called right-to-work legislation on Monday morning at Badger Meter in Brown Deer after the Assembly passed the measure Friday morning following almost 24 hours of debate. The measure bans labor contracts that would make it mandatory for workers to pay union fees. The legislation zoomed into play this year, pushed by GOP legislators, after Walker brushed aside the issue as a distraction during his re-election campaign last year.

Some federal and local law enforcement groups view the domestic terror threat from sovereign citizen groups as equal to and in some cases greater than the threat from foreign Islamic terror groups, such as ISIS, that garner more public attention.

Of course, they're lying. All Obama nominees are objectionable remember, our president is...

In this case, the gentleman in the video was a Democrat because (1) he is black and therefore liberal party alliance is automatic, and (2) he had a long-held belief that the Democratic Party was the party for everyday people. But then, several years ago, he had a...

    The history of all ancient societies is the history of class struggle. In each of these we find a complicated arrangement of people into various social, economic, and political orders. Ancient Rome had its patricians, knights, plebeians, and slaves. During the middle ages there were three orders; oratores, bellatores, laborares: this translates as "those who pray", "those who fight", and "those who work". In the 20th Century we have manage to simplify class antagonism via two distinctive groups who are hostile towards and in direct opposition to each others. They are known simply as The Left, and The Right. Therein...

For a long time, the American conversation has been terribly distorted because an active, uncompromising political right has not had to face a comparably influential left. As a result, our entire debate has been dragged in a conservative direction, meaning that the center has been pulled that way, too.

People were fascinated by the idea, and in the three decades since, bookstores, television, the Internet and college psychology classes everywhere have been filled with endless discussions of the differences between right-brain, left-brain, and whole-brain thinkers.

With these acts, he said, Israel violated international commitments. He added that Israel has allowed terrorists to operate inside the demilitarized zone in the Golan Heights and kidnap the UN observers stationed there.

I would be most gratified if you all could take the time to answer the six or so questions that I created. It has no marketing value or anything like that. Instead, it is designed to test the waters, so to speak, as to whether Americans have just simply given up or are still reared up and full of piss and fight.

    Chancellor Angela Merkels center-right government said Wednesday that it would not try to ban a far-right political party deemed racist, anti-Semitic and revisionist by domestic intelligence, choosing instead to focus on combating neo-Nazi extremism through other channels.

    Speaking to a group of German students, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry defended the core freedoms of speech, religion and thought telling them that in America, "you have a right to be stupid if you want to be." "People have sometimes wondered about why our Supreme Court allows one group or another to march in a parade even though it's the most provocative thing in the world and they carry signs that are an insult to one group or another," he said. "The reason is, that's freedom, freedom of speech. In American you have a right to be stupid...

  • Court to consider whether soldiers have 'right to life'

    Britain's highest court is to debate whether soldiers in battle are entitled to the right to life under human rights legislation. The Supreme Court will reportedly investigate the circumstances surrounding the death of Private Phillip Hewett in Iraq in July 2005 and examine whether troops in war zones are covered by Article 2 of the European Convention on Human Rights. Private Hewett's mother Sue Smith has fought for justice since the 21-year-old was blown up with two colleagues from the Staffordshire Regiment in a roadside bomb attack on their armoured Snatch Land Rover. In October, the lower Court of Appeal...

    WASHINGTON (AP) Your emails are not nearly as private as you think. (Snip) Under the 1986 Electronic Communications Privacy Act, federal authorities need only a subpoena approved by a federal prosecutor not a judge to obtain electronic messages that are six months old or older. To get more recent communications, a warrant from a judge is required. (Snip) "Technology has evolved in a way that makes the content of more communications available to law enforcement without judicial authorization, and at a very low level of suspicion," said Greg Nojeim, a senior counsel at the Center for Democracy...

    US Goes Left, NC Goes Rightby John Hammer Editor November 08, 2012 North Carolina and Guilford County took a sharp right turn while the nation continued on a leftward course on Tuesday, Nov. 6, with the reelection of President Barack Hussein Obama. **SNIP** North Carolina went the other way. The state elected Republican Pat McCrory governor, Republican Dan Forest as lieutenant governor, solid Republican majorities in both the North Carolina state House and state Senate, and preserved the Republican majority on the nominally nonpartisan state Supreme Court. So Republicans will control all three branches of state government.
