  • How Samantha Bee Survives

    Let’s call it progressive peer-group privilege. The older I get, the more firmly I’m convinced of a fundamental psychological fact. We never really leave high school. Of all the forms of pressure that one can apply to a person — political pressure, market pressure, moral pressure — the one that matters most of all is the one that mattered in the lunch room when you were wearing your class ring and letter jacket. It’s peer pressure, the unbreakable bond of the high-school clique. No reasonable person thinks Samantha Bee would still have a job at TBS if she used the...
  • Democrats Just Can’t Win The ‘Respect’ of Donald Trump voters

    In the endless search for the magic key that Democrats can use to unlock the hearts of white people who vote Republican, the hot new candidate is “respect.” If only they cast off their snooty liberal elitism and show respect to people who voted for Donald Trump, Democrats can win them over and take back Congress and the White House. The assumption is that if Democrats simply choose to deploy this powerful tool of respect, then minds will be changed and votes will follow. As a voter says in “The Great Revolt,” a new book by conservative journalist Salena Zito...

    Why the anti-Trumpers just can't give credit to the president for his successes. Bruce Thornton is a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the David Horowitz Freedom Center. Nearly a year-and-a-half into Donald Trump’s presidency, Trump Derangement Syndrome continues to rage. No number of successes––from tax reform and low unemployment rates not seen since 2000, to bringing North Korea’s Kim Jong Un to the bargaining table––can lower the fever of the anti-Trump disease. Even those few who are willing to give grudging recognition to Trump’s achievements feel compelled to add snarky asides about his person and style in order to assert their...

    Our nation’s elites are waging war on the American people, wielding the institutions they’ve spent several decades capturing to punish those who disagree with their preferred positions and to deny them the ability to speak publicly, all in an effort to stifle free and open debate. And no, this isn’t a George Orwell novel — this is the United States of America.While many still mistakenly view our political arena as a skirmish between “liberals” and “conservatives”, it would be more accurate to describe it as an all-out war between “elitists” and “populists”. As my late friend Jeff Bell argued in...

    Do they really hate ordinary people that much? Yes, they do. For liberals, the distinction between the "dumb masses" and their enlightened selves renders life meaningful. Disdain for ordinary folks is not just an ancillary trait of liberalism. It is fundamental to the its nature. At its heart, liberalism is a gnostic religion, and the essence of that religion is the believer's faith that he possesses the means of changing the world for the better. The belief that the world must be changed requires there to be a mass of individuals whose lives are in need of change. Following this...

    Hollywood, media, music industry, and political left-right Humanists are incapable of suspending their will-to-power, arrogant egotism fueled by an erroneous sense of 'moral' and 'intellectual' superiority or their scientism and evolution idolatry and a priori hatred of and contempt for President Trump, faithful Christians and Jews, middle class Conservatives, and the Christian-grounded America of its founding. Thus they are incapable of objectively considering the possibility that the ideology they religiously affirm is an unholy mixture of fantasy, scientism, lies, and evil and that a Scientific Dictatorship (NWO) – a global conspiracy run by super wealthy Western Luciferians and other pagan...

    Peter Schweizer talked during his appearance on Friday’s Breitbart News Tonight with SiriusXM hosts Rebecca Mansour and John Carney about the discovery of politically charged text messages between Peter Strzok, an FBI official involved in both the Trump and Clinton investigations, and his mistress. “This is, I think, a huge problem with bureaucrats in Washington, DC. I would point people to a book that was written just a couple of years ago by two Johns Hopkins University scholars, called What Washington Gets Wrong. They did a survey of precisely people like Peter Strzok, thousands of people who are senior government...

    Because finally, finally this country has elected someone not of, by, and for the swamp, someone who owes them nothing and does not fear them: Donald J. Trump. I freaking love Donald Trump. The reason the swamp hates him, of course, is manifold. He is proven to be a potent crusher of political correctness and polite society, the way things are supposed to be said, i.e. not on Twitter, and a crusher of that elite vanguard also known as the swamp. He came in and he promised to smash their corrupt existing order, to overturn the money changers' tables. Right?...

    [I begin] with the story of a series of Socialist scholars conferences that Barack Obama attended when he lived in New York City between the years 1983 and 1985. And when I finally reconstructed what had gone on at these Socialist conferences that Barack Obama attended, I truly was amazed because what I saw was a kind of map of Barack Obama’s entire subsequent political career. It was at this Socialist conferences in New York in the mid-’80s that Barack Obama encountered the groups, the strategies, and the mentors who would guide him throughout his entire political career. [T]hese Socialist...

    A lobbyist friend who visited Capitol Hill recently came away horrified. “I now am ready to believe that the partisanship is so unhinged that it’s a threat to the Republic,” she writes in an email. This Washington hysteria comes at a time of full employment, booming stocks, relative peace and technological marvels like an electronic robot named Alexa who fetches and plays for you songs of your choice. What’s the fuss about? We all know the answer: Donald Trump. The Washington body politic has been invaded by an alien presence and, true to the laws of nature, that body is...

    Are we supposed to bow down to a ruling class of controlling liberals, greedy politicians, MainFake Media, foreign soldiers, and domineering hordes of the “new brownshirts?” Private armies of the Left? From, NoMoreFakeNews.com: ‘Understand that these media giants not only believe they own the news, they also believe they create reality itself for the masses. They carve into the rock and unveil the sculpture. They script and direct the movie and screen it. They paint the ceiling fresco and display it. They write the novel and sell it. They produce the stage play and review it.

It might even be website only, I don't even know if this ran in the newspaper. It's the "Inspired Life" section of the Post. "What Is This Election Missing? Empathy for Trump Voters." I said, "Whoa, what's this? 'Empathy for Trump Voters'? You know what empathy is. It's not sympathy. It means we need a little bit more understanding of who these Trump people are.

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: There are two long-form pieces that I want to call your attention to today. Victor Davis Hanson back with a brilliant piece about the Clintons and who they are and what motives 'em. It's at National Review Online, and I just love it because it essentially, in his own words, makes points that I have been trying to make about the Clintons since I first became aware of them in 1990. There's another piece, and this also is a piece right after my heart. It's by somebody named Thomas Frank. Now, there are two Thomas Franks, and...

    over the past half century, the Reagan years notwithstanding, our ruling class’s changing preferences and habits have transformed public and private life in America. As John Marini shows in his essay, “Donald Trump and the American Crisis,” this has resulted in citizens morphing into either this class’s “stakeholders” or its subjects. And, as Publius Decius Mus argues, “America and the West” now are so firmly “on a trajectory toward something very bad” that it is no longer reasonable to hope that “all human outcomes are still possible,” by which he means restoration of the public and private practices that made...

    An effort to halt construction of an oil pipeline by the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe was rejected by a U.S. District Judge Friday. From the NY Times: The ruling by Judge James E. Boasberg in Washington rejected efforts by the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe to halt construction of the Dakota Access pipeline. A lawyer for the tribe says the ruling will be appealed. Although the $3.7 billion pipeline would not cross the reservation on its 1,170-mile path across four states, it would skirt the reservation’s northern boundary and run through what tribal officials say are ancestral lands. They say the...

The latest device is this Khizr Khan, a Muslin immigration lawyer who apparently adheres to Sharia law which is unconstitutional and, therefore, invalid law and illegal in the U.S. And as expected, your response and defense against Khan’s vicious attacks on you are being criticized in the media, of course taking the focus off the criminality of...
