    It's also a sure thing that none of patriots who elected Donald Trump want to have the Left as a backseat driver Imposition of unpopular laws, unprecedented coercion, financial hocus-pocus and so un-American Taqiya, led Obama’s team through hubris to the defeat in elections. The soon to be ex-administration came up with coping mechanisms such as delusional denial and post-truth techniques which are supposed to give the reality secondary importance and convince the public that the leftists still rule and are here to “supervise” the new government. Well, it looks like the Left lost it in more ways than one,...

    American Thinker ^ | January 10, 2017 | James G. Wiles
    Hillary Clinton's 2016 campaign against Donald Trump largely amounted to a reprise of the left's attacks on Judges Robert Bork and Clarence Thomas in the 1980s. "Borking" -- nice slang for Hillary’s "politics of personal destruction" (which she decried when it was employed against her husband in 1998) -- succeeded against Judge Bork. It did not work against Justice Clarence Thomas. And it demonstrably didn't work against president-elect Trump. So what is the left going to try next, now that Borking Mr. Trump has failed? "Massive resistance." that's what. I laughed when Slate's Michelle Goldberg used the term on NPR...

    Michelle Obama says she can “feel the difference” since the election. She claims that with her husband leaving the White House the nation is entering a “period of hopelessness.” With the election of Donald Trump, the Left in general is reacting in unhinged ways, with one news outlet claiming, “The Left has lost its collective mind.” Ironically, the Left is attacking Trump for the actions that they indulged in to the extreme over the past 8 years. They are doing a lot of “projection” –– a term psychologists use to describe the practice of attributing to others your own flaws....

    The left wants to rewrite our laws, redo our elections, and unravel our democracy. I wrote a piece for American Thinker, Yes, There Is a Coup On in America to call attention to the fact that our government, media, and Washington establishment is attempting a coup d’etat right before our eyes. I pointed out that per 18 USC Ch. 101, Hillary, Clinton, even without an indictment, was legally disqualified to run for President after her mishandling of classified information. I called out the FBI and Department of Justice (DOJ) as accessories after the fact when they used their positions to...

    Things look different now, and not just because Donald Trump was elected president. It has been clear that most voters have been rejecting big government policies, and not just in the United States but in most democratic nations around the world. Leftist politicians supposed that ordinary voters with modest incomes facing hard times would believe that regulation and redistribution would help them. Evidently most don't. The rejection was apparent in the 2010 and subsequent House elections; Republicans have now won House majorities in ten of the last 12 elections, leaving 2006 and 2008 as temporary aberrations. You didn't hear Hillary...

    Donald J. Trump is labeled by CNN as a liar on a regular basis, while the dead communist tyrant Fidel Castro is lauded as a revolutionary hero. American reporters are in Havana, Cuba to film people crying on their way to honor a dictator who had recommended that the Soviets launch a nuclear attack on the United States. Our media never fail to demonstrate that there is no limit to how low they can sink. The sickness in the media is only matched by the pro-Castro sentiments in people like Jill Stein, the Green Party presidential candidate working with Hillary...

    Four years of pain. As I’ve pointed out before, the Democrats didn’t just lose an election in November. Their defeat wasn’t as simple as one presidential race. As I wrote on Election Day, this one was for all the marbles. Generations of liberal progressive ideology - both past and future - were on the 2016 ballot. Had Democrats won, they would have owned the Supreme Court and the concept of the United States as a constitutionally-limited republic would have been decimated. Instead, the left was roundly rejected.

    The latest Somali immigrant attack in America’s heartland was as predictable as it was preventable. Ten people are hospitalized in an attack that could have been much worse, but for our fortunate ability to counter the terrorist with an armed response. The Left has no excuse — none whatsoever — for it’s decision to allow the mass immigration to America of a group with few economic prospects and a hugely disproportionate percentage of people who are planning attacks on Americans. And yet, they’ve done it and continue to do it, and Donald Trump is one of the few who has...

    You will hear some people today excuse Fidel Castro’s crimes by begging that he accomplished social goals. Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and British Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn have already beclowned themselves on that front. They were merely the first. Our own President Barack Obama opted for washing his hands, choosing to neither praise Castro after his death Friday, nor to condemn the tragedy his communist dictatorship has inflicted on the Cuban people for 57 years. “History will record and judge the enormous impact of this singular figure on the people and world around him,” said Obama playing Pilate.

In an attempt to convince everyone that “fake news” and the Russians somehow rigged the election in favor of Donald Trump, the Post has served up a story so absurd and unintentionally hilarious, it’s almost as if they wrote their own fake news to help us recognize the genre. It’s true. The venerable voice of the establishment actually published this (bolded passages by me):

    Over the weekend President-elect Trump announced how he plans to staff his administration. Reince Priebus will represent the establishment as chief of staff, traditionally a non-ideological position whose role is enforcing the president’s will. It is with the other names that we finally start to see what Donald Trump’s presidency will look like: Rudy Giuliani, Jeff Sessions, Steve Bannon and even possibly Sarah Palin as secretary of the interior. The big fear among Trump advocates and critics alike was that the man is a loose cannon, far too volatile to be allowed near the nuclear button. What we see instead...

    The intolerance of the Left has been on display for some time. Yet the vehemence with which the Left despises Donald Trump has put the hate machine into overdrive. If one supports Trump, it is tantamount to carpet-bombing every dog rescue kennel in America. If one speaks favorably of Trump, one is a racist-sexist-homophobic-transphobic-seal-clubbing hater. And if one dares to praise Trump — it can damage a reputation irreparably. Hollywood liberals have long blacklisted outspoken conservatives. “Dilbert” cartoon creator Scott Adams is experiencing this firsthand. Adams made several blog posts in August and September of 2015, which were astonishingly prescient,...

These two parties had opposing political and religious views and were at the opposite ends of the religious and political spectrum. In all honesty they both had little power under Rome’s iron hand, but that never stopped these two parties from trying to gain - the gentile occupied population of Israel’s –...

Trump was prominently labeled a would-be dictator who would turn America into a banana republic (something the Obama administration has largely already accomplished by undermining the rule of law). But the Left criminalizes politics and public policy differences all the time.

Their attitude is that any word uttered about the election that doesn’t serve as an open denunciation of Trump is an implicit endorsement of Trump. Let someone mention the bad behavior of the Clinton Foundation and the response is likely to be a shriek of outrage that you didn’t say something worse about the Trump Foundation. Say that Hillary...

This is because, overwhelmed by Marxism, few contemporary leftists remember their non-marxist forebears. But George's contemporaries certainly did. He flashed, burned white hot, and was gone.

Curiously, his most outrageous assertions often prove on analysis to be more right than wrong.

Of course, evaluating the wisdom of the American Revolution means dealing with counterfactuals. As any historian would tell you, this is a messy business. We obviously can't be entirely sure how America would have fared if it had stayed in the British Empire longer, perhaps gaining independence a century or so later, along with Canada. But I'm reasonably confident a world in which the revolution never happened would be better...

    The Left is fond of smearing those who do not share their value system as "fascist." The latest target is the current 'presumptive' GOP Presidential nominee. To the Left, "fascist" is a buzzword for an implied, undefined "evil." In fact, fascism is a definable political ideology that has an extensively documented history, in theory and practice. Fascism is a left-wing ideology; a bundling of trade-union syndicalism, futurism and statist collectivism. Fascists hold that private property can only be tolerated so long as it serves the public via its agent, the State. That most certainly is not a conservative principle, is...

Gresham-Barlow School District in Oregon was forced to cough up $60,000 to a teacher who prefers the pronoun "they" because she "identifies" as neither male nor female. The teacher, Leo Soell, was granted damages in order to compensate her for the emotional distress of being "misgendered." For the uninitiated, "misgendering" is nothing more than using the correct pronoun to refer to a person who prefers to be called something else. In the old days we just called it...

    Using the mechanisms of government, politics, public opinion to pressure you, investigate you, threaten litigation against you or otherwise complicate your life. Banks announce they will not lend money to people who deal in firearms. A major fundraising web site refuses to host campaigns for the targets of ideological harassment. A U.S. senator openly threatens to go after global warming skeptics using a law that was passed to take down the mafia. Governors veto laws designed to protect religious freedom after receiving threats from organizations like the National Football League. And of course, conservative organizations endure harassment from the IRS....

    The Russian Revolution was stolen by a small cadre of extremists after the WW I German government shipped Lenin back to Russia in hopes he would undermine the Czar's government and take Russia out of the war. It worked and the Soviet Union was born. We are witnessing the same thing right now with Move ON. Org, Black Lives Matter and a host of other radical groups financed by George Soros. Hitler's Nazis also copied the Soviets in destroying the Weimar Republic. Their favorite strategy was to worm their way into opposition groups and create chaos. A favorite ploy was...
  • The Left May Well Get Trump Nominated

    This past Friday, a left-wing mob shut down a Donald Trump rally in Chicago. Most Americans viewing what happened saw it for what it was -- another left-wing assault on the speech of those with whom they differ and on traditional American civility. Not surprisingly, the media reporting has concentrated overwhelmingly on Trump for incendiary and inexcusable comments he has made at some of his other rallies that were disrupted by protesters. For example, he offered to pay any legal bills incurred by a man in the audience who sucker-punched a protester as he was being led out of a...
  • The Strategy the Left is Using to Try and Take Down Ted Cruz

    I’ve been wondering for several months how the left would tackle Ted Cruz should he eventually rise in the polls as I expected he would. Looking at his candidacy, he’s been sterling. However, as the left does, they find an angle on a conservative candidate, and drive it into the depths of hell. Regarding Cruz, I think I finally see where they’re going to go.Up until this point, Cruz didn’t pose a threat to the left; he was middle-of-the-pack. I–as well as many conservatives–knew he would eventually rise, threatening the elites in the Democratic Party, as well as the establishment...

    The left's reactions to the terror attack on Paris are in keeping with its tradition of getting almost everything wrong. Take Bernie Sanders, for example. At the Democratic presidential debate, one day after the Paris attack, the democratic socialist candidate made this observation about al-Qaida: "I would argue that the disastrous invasion of Iraq, something that I strongly opposed, has unraveled the region completely, and led to the rise of al-Qaida and to ISIS." That a U.S. senator, let alone a man running for president of the United States, believes that the American invasion of Iraq led to the rise...

    In 1935 George Dangerfield published "The Strange Death of Liberal England, 1910-1914," a vivid account of how Britain's center-left Liberal Party, dominant for a century, collapsed amid conflicts it could not resolve. The Liberal Party had appeared impregnable. Its cabinet in 1910 included Herbert Asquith (in the midst of the longest consecutive prime ministership since the Duke of Liverpool's and until Margaret Thatcher's), and the future wartime leaders David Lloyd George and Winston Churchill. But after 1910 the party never won an election again. What got me thinking about Dangerfield's delightfully written book were political developments here and in Britain...
  • Democrats Threw Everything They Had At Scott Walker—And Still Lost

    Right to work. The elimination of wage control laws. Voter ID laws. Defunding Planned Parenthood. Expanding school choice. These are some of the No. 1 priorities for Republican legislators around the country. Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker has hit every item on this list, and he did so in a deep blue state; Wisconsin hasn’t gone red in a presidential election in more than 30 years, and its labor union culture may be second only to that of the automotive capital in neighboring Michigan. Walker’s uncompromising conservative governance made him Democrats' No. 1 target at both the state and national level,...

    The American Report ^ | June 27, 2015 | Lawrence Sellin, PHD
    The United States no longer has, as the Constitution designed, a government composed of executive, legislative and judicial branches, separate, but equal in power. The federal government is now an alliance of branches, devoted to the preservation of government itself, separate, not from each other, but from the American people and dedicated to tyranny. The policies pursued by the Obama Administration and facilitated by cowardly politicians and a compliant media are not simply the intersection of radical ideology and incompetence, but a dangerous subversive element of an anti-American and anti-Western strategy. Cultural Marxism and its many variants, such as political...

    We currently have a Leftist campaigning nationally for president as an acknowledged Socialist and you would think that the nation’s left would now admit to the obvious – that he and they are socialists. But this isn’t the case, converse with them even a short time and you will find that they will fight you tooth and nail to deny the obvious. Numerous times Bernie Sanders has ‘outed’ himself as a socialist on the national stage, and yet leftists all over the nation deny that he’s (and they by extension) are Socialists. Go ahead and look up the definition of...

    Lifelong liberal Kirsten Powers blasts the Left's forced march towards conformity in an exposé of the illiberal war on free speech. No longer champions of tolerance and free speech, the "illiberal Left" now viciously attacks and silences anyone with alternative points of view. Powers asks, "What ever happened to free speech in America?"
