  • The Left is Setting Up a Civil War. Are Liberals Okay With This?

    Like many Americans, I’m watching some of the Kavanaugh (Supreme Court) hearings with a sense of sadness. Because it’s apparent that there is no difference between the elected Senate Democrats and the crazies they allowed into the Senate chambers to disrupt the proceedings, and I know where this is leading. Certain Democrat “leaders” like Sen. Kamala Harris of California and Sen. Corey Booker of New Jersey are clearly acting out in an effort to show their “leadership” skills to their left-wing base. Both want to be President. This shows you what they think “leadership” in today’s Democrat Party means–obstruction of...

    In June 2018, young 28-year-old "Socialist Democrat" Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez defeated 10-term Democrat Joe Crowley in what was considered a major upset. Crowley – a tried-and-true Democratic congressman with 20 years of loyal party service, proved no match for Ocasio-Cortez and her embodiment of the new brand of über-liberal progressivism. In the new paradigm of Democratic Party politics, there is no such thing as social policies that are too liberal, no education, healthcare, or assistance initiatives that are too generous with government-funded payouts, no position on illegal immigration or gender identity that is too lenient or accommodating. Now in Massachusetts, it...

    The Democratic makeover is in full swing. **SNIP** Those tensions could come to a head if Pelosi struggles to be elected speaker. Even if she wins, it could be difficult for her to preside over a more liberal caucus. James, of the Collective PAC, said that's exactly the idea. "The status quo to me doesn't mean getting rid of people who have been in office a long time," she said. "It means you can't have the same mentality, you can't have the same goals. You can't have the same playbook. You've got to switch it up."
  • Nets Thrilled by Capitol Hill ‘Chaos’ at Kavanaugh Hearing

    Swept up in the excitement of Democrats and left-wing protesters constantly disrupting the first day of Senate hearings for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, on Wednesday, all three network morning shows read from the same script as reporters declared: “Chaos on Capitol Hill.” The hostility was touted as a “coordinated strategy” engineered by “passionate” liberal lawmakers opposed to Kavanaugh. “Chaos on Capitol Hill. A combative start for Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination hearings,” co-host Savannah Guthrie proclaimed at the top of NBC’s Today show. “A new round of fireworks expected today. Democrats zeroing in on everything from guns to abortion,”...
  • Lexington-area tourism group beefs up marketing in wake of RED Hen controversy

    LEXINGTON — Rockbridge Regional Tourism approved a recovery plan to boost its marketing after The Red Hen restaurant controversy brought a slew of negative national media coverage this summer. The regional tourism board, with members from Lexington, Buena Vista and Rockbridge County, met with the Lexington City Council on Thursday for an update on tourism initiatives and numbers. The board had initially approved the recovery plan soon after news of The Red Hen controversy was spreading across the country. At the end of June, the restaurant’s owner declined to serve presidential press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders when she visited the...

    **SNIP** Boyle is a Legal Observer with the Chicago chapter of the National Lawyers Guild, an 81-year-old organization of left-leaning lawyers who support progressive causes, founded as a counterweight to the famously conservative American Bar Association, which excluded African-Americans from membership until 1943. There are about 100 Legal Observers with the Chicago chapter, trained volunteers whose job is to watch police during a protest, record any alleged violations of civil liberties and, according to the group’s directive, serve “as a deterrent to unconstitutional behavior.” **SNIP** “My job with the Lawyers Guild was to mobilize law students to help out (as...

    RUSH: I try to remain focused on the big picture, as opposed to getting caught up in all the daily minutiae. Now, it’s hard not to get caught up in it, but getting caught up in the daily minutiae almost requires a posture of defensiveness because the daily minutiae, when I say minutiae, I just mean there’s so much of it. It’s not irrelevant or unimportant. The ongoing effort to drive Donald Trump out of office intensifies each and every day, and that’s what I’m talking about. And there are so many different spokes in that wheel. And they are...

    We are still all Americans, no matter what the liberal left tries to tell us in order to divvy us up into malleable, moldable little voters. For democrats, it’s one of the only ways in which they can galvanize support for their doomed party. They infiltrate the youth, push progressive ideals and tribalism among the fringes, and then go after those newly created segments of voters in order to shore up the support they need to remain in power. The adverse side effects are obvious: A rapidly radicalizing liberal base that is looking to tear apart the Constitutional fabric of...

    People are making this so complicated. A couple of weeks ago, the New York Times editorial board hired a technology writer, Sarah Jeong. When it was revealed that she had tweeted barbs against white people, conservatives formed a Twitter mob to demand her dismissal. While a few on the right said -- or claimed -- that they were offended by the substance of her tweets, the overriding passion derived from an understandable outrage about liberal double standards. The argument took a familiar form: "If a white or conservative person said something like this about any other group, her career would...

    Anti-Confederate liberals (of various races) can't get over the fact that pro-common-sense liberals, moderates and conservatives (of various races) can't go over the fact that rhetorical agitation over race has led us down a blind alley. The supposed "nationalist" rally in Washington, D.C., last weekend was more an embarrassment to its promoters than it was anything else significant. No one showed up but cops, journalists and anti-nationalist protesters. Ho-hum. We're back approximately where we were before the Charlottesville, Virginia, disaster the Washington march was meant to commemorate -- a foul-tempered shouting match that ended in death for a bystander hit...

    The Failing New York Times ^ | 8/9/2018 | Erik Nielson
    “Hate” is a dangerously elastic label. And it has long been used to demonize unpopular expression, particularly among people of color. Apple, Facebook, YouTube, Spotify and most other major internet distributors took a bold step this week when they all but banned content from Infowars, a website run by the right-wing conspiracy theorist Alex Jones. The tech companies cited their policies against hate speech for their decision, rather than the trafficking in fake news by Infowars. It’s tempting to applaud this move, but we should be wary. While Mr. Jones’s rhetoric is certainly repugnant, mounting pressure from the political left...

    In America today there is nothing worse than being called a racist. You can’t easily defend yourself against the life-changing, sometimes career-ending smear which evildoers can wield with impunity. “There is nothing worse for your career,”  New York State Assemblyman Kieran Lalor (R), said on Fox and Friends, “there’s nothing worse for you as a person. A lot of people don’t want to speak up because they’re going to be accused of being a racist.” Yet outrageous, even genocidal, statements are issued every day now by hate-filled black supremacists and their radical allies. In a case of deviancy having...

    Many of the nation's colleges have become a force for evil and a focal point for the destruction of traditional American values. The threat to our future lies in the fact that today's college students are tomorrow's teachers, professors, judges, attorneys, legislators and policymakers. A recent Brookings Institution poll suggests that nearly half of college students believe that hate speech is not protected by the First Amendment. Of course, it is. Fifty-one percent of students think that it's acceptable to shout down a speaker with whom they disagree. About 20 percent of students hold that it's acceptable to use...

    While Turning Point USA's Charlie Kirk and Candace Owens were having breakfast in Philadelphia on Monday morning, a group of protesters started to heckle them. Watch the videos below: “We [were] just enjoying life,” Kirk, TPUSA's founder and president, told IJR. “And then they came outside the window and started screaming.” In a video posted to Twitter, it is shown that when Owens and Kirk went outside, a protester poured water on Kirk: Police had to then intervene to prevent the situation from escalating. “Is there a colored-only section for black police officers and black conservatives that I missed,” Owens...

    The more I think about it, the less I care about Sarah Jeong. I don’t think I’d ever read anything she’d written before this week and having now read a few things I don’t think I was missing all that much. That’s not meant as a slam on her ability because I think she’s actually a good writer. But the subject she writes about isn’t that interesting to me. She styles herself an expert on technology, which doesn’t mean she can rebuild a V-8 engine or repair a circuit board. In media parlance, it means she has opinions about social...

    Dinesh D'Souza: 'The weapons of the state are used against political opponents' Conservative author and filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza contends American politics are at their most combustible since just before the Civil War, and he says President Trump must lead the effort to destroy “plantation politics” and end the practice of using the power of government to punish political enemies. D’Souza latest film, “Death of A Nation,” which opens Aug. 3, contends one of the greatest dangers Americans now face is the Democrats’ weaponization of government to exact political punishment on their enemies. He believes that’s the reason for the increased...

    Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) implored activists this week to call for change by confronting elected members of Congress. Booker, who has been mentioned as a possible 2020 presidential election candidate, was speaking Wednesday at the National Conference on Ending Homelessness in Washington, D.C. He concluded his address by encouraging people not to be passive, and to instead "go to the Hill today." "Please, get up in the face of some congresspeople," he said.

    LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Police have cleared the scene of a protest that blocked elevators in a Kentucky building that houses an immigration court. The group Occupy ICE Louisville says a group of people went into the building in downtown Louisville on Thursday morning to protest the separation of immigrant families. The protesters linked their arms together inside plastic tubes. A large number of police outside the building dispersed just before noon as the protesters were taken away in a paddy wagon.

    Contemplating the silly pronouncements of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, self-declared socialist and surprise winner of Democratic primary in New York’s 14th congressional district, I wonder if this particular form of political stupidity requires a certain level of affluence to thrive. There are, after all, many salubrious processes that produce unpleasant by-products as part of their activity. You see it in manufacturing, you see it in biology. You eat the steak, it nourishes you and makes you strong, but it also results in odiferous and potentially toxic by-products. Capitalism is the greatest engine for the production of wealth that the ingenuity of man...
