  • The Left’s Bizarre, Irrational Hatred of MAGA

    Make America Great Again is a patriotic slogan that President Trump uses. It’s no different than phrases like “America the Beautiful” or “Let Freedom Ring.” But because it has become associated with Trump and Republicans, the left has developed an irrational hatred of it. The left is committing acts of violence against conservatives merely for wearing a MAGA hat. The hat doesn’t even say Donald Trump or Republican on it. It’s fairly tame free speech. But the left has become increasingly intolerant of free speech in recent years. And while acts of violence are committed against conservatives wearing MAGA hats,...

    To write a thorough and well-documented history of the Left is an impressive accomplishment in itself.  To write such a history so that it reads with the ease and flow of a good, gripping novel is another thing altogether, but that is what Mark Melcher and Stephen Soukup have done with Know Thine Enemy: A History of the Left (Volume One).  This comprehensive history of the Left’s major figures and movements is page-turning read for anyone wanting a deeper understanding of the threat to America’s culture, politics, and future posed by the Left’s radical agenda.The book’s opening alerts the reader...

    THE WHITE House is in lockdown after a man attempted to set himself on fire, a New York Times reporter has claimed. Photos taken at the scene show security personnel tackling a person on the ground. Police and amublance crews are in attendance. Nicholas Kristof, a columnist with the New York Times, said: “Someone apparently set himself on fire in front of the White House just now. I was coming out of the West Wing, and the Sevret Service isn’t letting anyone out onto Pennsylvania Ave. They say there are also suspicious packages. “The whole area in front of the...

    There’s no question that animosity exists on both sides of the political spectrum, but have you noticed how personal it has become for many on the left? It is disturbing how intolerant and filled with rage leftist extremists have become, and how many more people are falling into the category of leftist extremism. But what concerns me as much as this pattern of ill will and abuse from leftists is that it is unchecked by their peers and often applauded. Instead of encouraging people to appeal to the better angels of their nature, they are beckoning them to summon their...

    RUSH: It’s one of those days, folks — and there aren’t many — but when they happen, you need to stop, take stock and take notice. This is one of those days that is a bad day for leftists around the world. In Israel, Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu won reelection for a fifth term. Now, leading up to it we got the same kind of news leading up to the 2016 race, Bibi was hated, he was despised, he was a criminal, he was a thug, he was corrupt, and there was no way. His own party hated his guts....

    Despite continued reductions in law enforcement officers’ use of deadly force, this decade is shaping up to be one of the most trying decades in the history of American law enforcement. The debate surrounding the state of policing is dominated by emotion rather than fact. The amount of demagoguery and invective in the national discussion of law enforcement should concern everyone, because effective policing and, in turn, a safe citizenry rely on factual and objective reporting. The police-involved shooting death of Stephon Clark in Sacramento, California last year is just the latest example of how facts tend to get hijacked...

    As outgoing Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen looks for her next job following her resignation Sunday, she may find herself battling a liberal blacklisting effort against those who've served in the Trump administration. Nielsen's name appears on a list that a cabal of immigration and civil rights groups recently sent to the CEOs of American companies, urging them not to hire Trump officials who were involved in last year's separation of migrant children from their families. Other current and former Trump administration officials targeted include John Kelly, the former White House chief of staff, and Sarah Sanders, the current White...

    The Left has won the culture war, and now it's exiling anyone with sympathy for the losing side. Two recent incidents evince a growing trend to try to ban any view on gender or sexuality from public life that is to the Right of the American Civil Liberties Union. The Federalist Society at Yale Law School recently incurred the wrath of students because it invited Kristen Waggoner to speak. Waggoner is a renowned attorney at a public-interest law firm who was part of a successful Supreme Court case. Why would a speaking invitation to a successful female attorney trigger the...

    Miami jury hung in case of 68-year-old Laurence Key A mistrial was declared Thursday in the case of a man from Stuart, Florida, who was charged last year for threatening to kill Rep. Brian Mast’s children over the Trump administration’s family separation immigration policy. Laurence Key, 68, is charged with one count of communicating a threat to kidnap or injure a person. But the trial that began Monday in Miami was declared a mistrial after the jury was hung, TCPalm reported, citing court documents and a spokeswoman for the U.S. Attorney’s Office in the Southern District of Florida.

    PALO ALTO (KPIX 5) – An accountant has lost her job after berating a man in public and online for wearing a “Make America Great Again” cap at a Starbucks in Palo Alto. The confrontation took place at the coffeehouse on California Avenue on Monday, which quickly went viral. Since losing her job, the woman has seemed to have gone into hiding, while the man was spotted wearing the hat Wednesday. “You know, America is still a free country right?” said Victor F., a 74-year-old supporter of the president who lives in Palo Alto. Victor casually went about his business...

    More than a dozen state lawmakers filed onto the stage, summoned by the smiling leader of their state: Ralph S. Northam, the governor of Virginia. On the governor’s right were a handful of House Democrats, who as a group in February said they were “no longer confident in the governor’s representation of Virginians,” after learning of a shocking racist photo on Mr. Northam’s medical-school yearbook page. On his left were mostly Republicans, including the speaker of the House, Delegate Kirk Cox, who’d declared that Mr. Northam’s “ability to lead and govern is permanently impaired.” Some on stage were members of...

    Nothing keeps me religious more than the left, not even religion itself. I am not even particularly "spiritual." My religiosity is overwhelmingly rational (the title of my Bible commentary is "The Rational Bible"). I believe in God because creation rationally suggests a Creator. The force that has most propelled me to religion is the great (secular) religion of the last hundred years: the left. If most people of the left (the left, not liberalism) -- people who have not only rejected but scorned God, Judaism, Christianity and the Bible -- were decent individuals, were committed to intellectual honesty and had...

    Hundreds of Google employees are demanding the company remove the president of conservative think tank the Heritage Foundation from a newly formed council meant to advise the company on the responsible usage of artificial intelligence. A group of employees calling itself Googlers Against Transphobia said in a post to the website Medium on Monday that by appointing Heritage's president Kay Coles James to the council, Google is "making clear that its version of 'ethics' values proximity to power over the wellbeing of trans people, other LGBTQ people, and immigrants."

    “This president is the first president in the modern history of our country who is trying to divide our people up based on the color of their skin, the country they were born in, their sexual orientation, their gender, their religion. And that is an outrage.” That was Bernie Sanders, a Democrat candidate for president in 2020, at a CNN town hall event in late February. And as the Vermont Socialist explained, “our job is to bring our people together, not to divide them up.” This was not a new theme for Democrats. In September of 2018 at the University...

    GRAND RAPIDS, MI -- “No Trump, no KKK, no fascist USA!” a crowd of more than 200 protesters chanted at President Donald Trump supporters as they entered Van Andel Arena in Grand Rapids Thursday afternoon to hear the president speak. “I came here to stand up for what I believe in,” said Grand Rapids resident Cam Deen, “and that’s anti-racism, anti-bigotry and anti-sexism. I feel Trump embodies the opposite of those things.” The protesters on Fulton Street in front of the arena were contained within a city block by salt trucks on either end and were separated from Trump supporters...

    Since the election of President Donald Trump in 2016, we have experienced a growing trend of once fringe activist groups who are now the leaders of the Democratic Party refusing to accept the results of his election, and subsequently the elections of other prominent Republican governors and members of Congress throughout our land. Even elections where it was obvious the Republican won, Democrats have demanded costly recounts and done everything in their power to destabilize the situation to the point of undermining our democratic republic.

    Progressive candidates and new Democratic representatives have offered lots of radical new proposals lately about voting and voters. They include scrapping the 215-year-old Electoral College. Progressives also talk of extending the vote to 16- or 17-year-olds and ex-felons. They wish to further relax requirements for voter identification, same-day registration and voting, and undocumented immigrants voting in local elections. The 2016 victory of Donald Trump shocked the left. It was entirely unexpected, given that experts had all but assured a Hillary Clinton landslide. Worse still for those on the left, Trump, like George W. Bush in 2000 and three earlier winning...

    One can sum up today's Democratic party in one word, LAWLESSNESS! Lawlessness is the promotion and application of the rejection of sound moral absolutes; which were instilled into the creation by its ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS Creator (Gen. 1:1-31, Rom. 1:18-32). The Democratic leadership of today has fully embraced lawlessness and the base things of this fallen world (Rom. 1:18-32, 2 Tim. 3:1-7, 2 Thes. 2:10-12, Jude 1:7). These godless reprobates - in their godless rebellion - have sought to rename lawless and evil tendencies with euphemistic feel-good titles, while slandering and branding all those who uphold morality as evil!
