    So, after all this talk about dialing down the rhetoric, letÂ’s be clear about something: thatÂ’s never, ever going to happen. As long as there is a Democratic Party, it wonÂ’t happen. You cannot reason with these people. We said the same thing after the assassination attempt of former Rep. Gabby Giffords (D-AZ). It didnÂ’t take. Why? ItÂ’s because Democrats and Republicans, liberals and conservatives, red states and blue states are different. We have different cultural attitudes, different views on patriotism (Democrats hate outward displays of national pride), and DEEP differences on how government should run the country. We...

    The suspect in a synagogue vandalism act that forced the cancellation of a Democratic event is reportedly a former City Hall employee who worked on anti-hate crime issues and is a Democratic activist, The Daily Caller News Foundation has learned. The New York Times and a Jewish couple helped the impoverished gay black man attend college where he studied African American studies, according to The Times. He resented New York liberals as patronizing, and railed against Israel and cultural appropriation, according to his Facebook profile. Before knowing his identity, politicians said the vandalism demonstrated why voting Democratic was needed and...

  • The AP: The Shadow Giant Bolstering Democrats

    When conservatives consider media bias, they invariably jump to mainstream outlets such as the New York Times, Washington Post, CNN and so on. But what is often overlooked is the Associated Press, or AP, which indisputably has the biggest media impact because its stories run in virtually every daily newspaper and news network in the country including the New York Times and Washington Post, CNN and so on. People often complain about a story in the Times or Post or elsewhere, but it turns out to be an AP story. But that is only known by looking under the name...

    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) is defending the Trump administration's policy of separating migrants from their children when they are apprehended at the border, saying it can't be avoided when people illegally cross the border. "There's actually a court order that prevents keeping the kids with the parents when you put the parents in jail," Cruz told the Dallas public radio station KERA on Monday, according to a report in The Dallas Morning News.
  • Scarborough Concedes: Texas Blue Wave “Overhyped”

    Democrats across the country were getting a collective thrill up their leg about the coming “blue wave” that was about to break over Texas. Some early-voting numbers had Dems all excited. And then the election happened. And it’s true that a political party set a Texas record yesterday for the number of voters going to the polls in a primary. Just one teensy little problem for Texas Dems: it was the Republican party. Democrats turned out in solid-but-not-record-breaking numbers. Overall, Republicans swamped Dem turnout by about half-a-million votes. Republican votes cast beat Dem votes by a ratio of 60/40. On...

    Drudge and establishment/leftwing news sites have been going crazy with the notion that incredibly high Democrat turnout in Texas means that Texas is going blue. But election results show that Republicans are absolutely SPANKING Democrats in turnout, getting 50% more votes than the Democrats. https://www.politico.com/election-results/2018/texas/ And that's with the Democrats having fiesty, expensive primary contents while the Republicans are mostly merely coronating their incumbent governor, Greg Abbot, and senator, Ted Cruz (although both candidates had multiple opponents). Abbot received 1.4 million votes, compared to Lupe Valdez and Andrew White, who will be headed to a runoff after receiving about half...

Using data from analytics service Buzzsumo, the online publication found a stark contrast in the engagement rate for conservative media vs. mainstream media, with the former dropping sharply while the latter held steady. The Outline also found a decline in engagement for what they call left-wing “clickbait” sites, including Shareblue...

    Liberal activists resisting the presidency of Donald Trump say they’d rather defeat him and other Republicans at the ballot box than see Trump brought down in other ways. Those gathering for the annual Netroots Nation confab this weekend in Georgia say obsessing over subpoenas and clamoring for impeachment distracts from larger policy debates. They believe it also takes away from congressional midterm elections whose outcomes will last beyond Trump. …

    As we face the new year and the realities of politics in a post-Obama world, the Democrats understandably feel the need to act as if some things are still normal. That is, even if they suspect that Donald Trump and the Republicans will soon turn the U.S. into a one-party state in all but name, the Democrats need to avoid admitting as much—to themselves or anyone else—to prevent their fears from become a self-fulfilling prophecy. This means that, in the hope of being able to win elections in the future, Democrats are trying to think through the various reasons that...
