  • What the left's anti-Second Amendment crusade is really about

    This discusses a reaction to the gun control debate. I am convinced that the left's war on the Second Amendment has nothing to do with public safety (even if some of their foot soldiers believe it individually, and even though the argument is renewed frequently, especially but not exclusively if a gun is used in a crime). The leaders, however, know that if fundamental transformation becomes complete, and their brand of communism is finally installed in America, allowing their totalitarian impulses to be released, it will require the installation of the usual leftist police state to maintain their power and...
  • Lies The Anti-Gun Left Tell & That MUST Be Confronted Now!

    The sociological, theological, cultural and political left lie often. This is not new. That they lie regarding the issue of guns is taken for granted. That they do so in the aftermath of children dying—usually as a result of their horrid policies—they do so with such predictability you could set one’s watch to it. The shooting in Texas this week was no exception. Within minutes of the first reports breaking the wires, the twitter-verse had exploded worldwide with the demands that “something be done.” (And you realize that they say this as though they are the only ones who think...
  • We camped out with the antifa activists plotting to disarm the alt-right

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The alt right is struggling to hold itself together. It’s dealing with infighting and money problems, and some of its leaders have decided they can’t risk holding events that are open to the public. One reason for that is antifa, the anti-fascist activists best known for punching Nazis but who also engage in digital counterintelligence, infiltrating white nationalist message boards and chat rooms to find out who they are and what they’re doing. In late April, anti-fascist activists camped out in the woods of rural Tennessee the night before the American Renaissance conference, an annual gathering of...

    President-elect Donald Trump replaces President Faily McWorsethancarter Friday, but we’re not going to be able to Netflix and chill in the fight for freedom. The left and its establishment allies are desperate to regain the power they see slipping away, and we need to understand that the only way to stop them is to beat them to a pulp and leave them whimpering in the fetal position, crying out for their genderfluid mommies. The left’s strategy is simple – deny normal Americans normalcy. After all, that’s what we really want, a return to normal. We haven’t experienced real normal since...
  • About that Monologue … And What It says About the Press

    Much has already been written by many about the monologue delivered by comedienne Michelle Wolf during the so-called entertainment portion of the White House Correspondents’ Association annual awards dinner. Most of the criticisms levied against her have been spot on, particularly the observation she just wasn’t funny (thus breaking a cardinal rule of comedy) so there’s no need to belabor them further. Suffice it to say she is not the first and will not be the last, if the event continues in anything resembling its current form, to have bombed at the dinner. The notoriety she’s received will help boost...

    Historically, both sides of the political spectrum in America have supported the rule of law and the Constitution. Additionally, other than the Democrats' longstanding racist oppression of black people, the positions held by both sides were generally differences that people of goodwill could hold. For example, good people can disagree on just what the tax rates should be. Since Roe v. Wade, that has changed, and the change has accelerated rapidly in the last eight years. The left in America has openly embraced evil, rejected the rule of law, and denied that Americans they disagree with have constitutional rights. That's...

    In a piece for The Federalist entitled, “It’s Time For The United States To Divorce Before Things Get Dangerous,” writer and former Marine corp combat veteran Jesse Kelly ruffled more than a few feathers with his contention that the time for the United States as a united nation may be nearing an inevitable end. Comparing the Left and Right in America to “the couple screaming at each other all night, every night as the kids hide in their room,” Kelly cites a congenial divorce as the best option for a country that’s “hopelessly divided” on seemingly every important issue. He even tweeted...

    Our wintry spring has impinged on my work life. Hustling through one nor’easter after another, I’ve not attended to news as much as I usually do. In spite of my relative inattention, two news stories resonated. National Public Radio sounded a familiar drumbeat: “Police shoot unarmed black man, father of two, in his grandmother’s backyard.” I heard those words, all carefully selected, repeated several times throughout the day, with the shrill, persistent urgency of a tornado warning. Tornado warnings demand that you abandon what you are doing and move to a shelter. “Police kill unarmed black man” demands that...
  • 'Uneducated': The Left's Favorite Pejorative

    03/17/2018 5:27:20 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 25 replies ^ | March 17, 2018 | Gavin Wax
    It is no secret that the Left are big supporters of a politically correct culture. They see no issue with constantly stifling the free speech of anyone who disagrees with the politically correct narrative of the mainstream. They regularly clamp down on your free speech in the name of protecting the sensibilities of all those who happen to disagree. This policy has become so widespread on college campuses throughout the nation that it goes beyond merely condemning what people happen to say or feel, to physically placing the potential "victims" of your speech into so-called "safe spaces" in order to...
  • 7 Techniques Liberals Use to Silence Conservatives

    03/16/2018 5:56:48 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 31 replies ^ | March 16, 2018 | John Hawkins
    Free speech has become a conservative idea by default because liberals don’t believe in it any more. Liberals have given up on the idea of coming up with the best argument and now work tirelessly to silence their opposition so they can win the argument by default. Liberals NEED to do this because their ideas don’t work very well in the real world and if their ideas are tested and evaluated logically, they will be rejected by most people. So, how do they get around that? 1) Libsplaining: For every guy out there mansplaining, there are probably 500 liberals libsplaining what...

    In today’s 24-hours news cycle, many people wish they could isolate themselves from reality for a variety of reasons. For some, it would be absolutely heaven to block all news. It seems like a far-fetched idea, but one liberal in Ohio has actually done it since the day after the presidential election 2016 in an experiment known as "The Blockade." The New York Times published the story today. “Right after the election, Erik Hagerman decided he’d take a break from reading about the hoopla of politics.Donald Trump’s victory shook him. Badly. And so Mr. Hagerman developed his own eccentric experiment,...

    They tell us that our uppity refusal to quietly submit to abuse and subjugation, both figurative and literal, makes us bad people. Not only can we live with that, but we should celebrate it.When the liberals and their squishy-soft allies in Conservative, Inc., start moaning about your dreadful incivility, that’s a clear indicator that you are doing something right and that you need to double down. Civility, once properly understood as a means to an end rather than an end in and of itself, has morphed from an aspiration into a political/cultural gimp suit designed to prevent you from effectively...

    The extremist leftist organization known as FCKH8 is at it again, forcing young girls to help them push its pro-feminism agenda through the use of profanity. Just when it appears they can’t stoop any lower, the Left always proves us wrong. For its new campaign, abhorrently titled “Pussy Scouts,” FCKH8 dresses the children up in pink Girl Scouts uniforms and pink knitted hats made popular at the Women’s March and forces them to “trash Trump” in an R-rated rap, as the Facebook post explains: “Girl’s F-Bomb Rap Trashing Trump” features pussy hat-wearing scouts, ages 8 to 12, humorously trash-rapping against...

    “What are we doing?” That question rang through a riveted and silent CPAC crowd on Friday as the president repeated it, “So what are we doing?”He continued, “We want to ensure that when there are warning signs we can act and act very quickly. Why do we protect our banks, our airports, and our government buildings, but not our schools?”As the discussion since the Valentine’s Day massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School has progressed, a couple of comparisons have emerged that are truly disturbing. Their outcomes hold remarkable similarity.1. The Protestors vs The Preventionists: In the nearly immediate aftermath of the...

    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...

Now it’s the basis for how liberals view unalienable rights explicitly protected in the Constitution. The idea...

    Student survivors of the horrific Parkland, FL school shooting spoke on multiple Sunday shows today, and one of the students had a very direct message for President Trump. Trump claimed yesterday that Democrats “didn’t want to” solve the gun problem. David Hogg, who said the day after the shooting that “children will continue to die if we don’t take a stand now,” looked into the camera on CBS’ Face the Nation and said this to the President: “President Trump, you control the House of Representatives, you control the Senate, and you control the executive. You haven’t taken a single bill...

    These last 24 hours, we’ve heard some very passionate words and opinions from witnesses and survivors of the recent Florida school shooting regarding the need for lawmakers and leaders to take some kind of action to prevent these tragedies from happening over and over again. Calling into MSNBC this afternoon, Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School student Cameron Kasky recounted the hysteria that he witnessed during the shooting that took the lives of 17 people. He was then asked by host Ali Velshi how he’s been dealing with the aftermath of the tragedy, with Velshi noting that many of Kasky’s classmates...
