  • Border Wall A Symbol Of Our Symbolic Politics

    As we close out 2018 with a partial government shutdown merely adding some extra spice to the monotonous stew of political rage served daily, it's worth noting that the primary sticking point isn't an ideological split over border security, nor is it the recalcitrance of the president or the Democrats. It's about symbolism, for want of a better word. I am in no way trying to minimize the disagreement. We often dismiss controversies or concerns by waving our hands and saying something like, "Oh, that's merely symbolic," as if the meaning we give to symbols is somehow irrelevant compared with...

    Had John C. Fremont not run as a Republican in 1856, there would probably would have been no Lincoln in 1860. The Republican Party formed in the 1850s with the collapse of the Whig Party. The central unifying issue Republicans shared was abolition of slavery. It unified people across political parties, bringing them together into something new. In the early 1990s, fueled by a single billionaire's calls for reform, the Reform Party sprang up under H. Ross Perot. He won 18.9 percent of the popular vote. The Reform Party, unlike the Republicans in the 1800s, was one man's party,...

    Ohio Governor John Kasich said Tuesday that were in danger of seeing our moral standing in the world eroded, thanks in part to the news that the U.S. would move forward with an arms deal with Saudi Arabia. I just want to tell you that we're in danger of seeing our moral standing in the world eroded, said Kasich during an interview Tuesday. I happened to meet a tremendous prisoner of conscience a man by the name of Anatoly Sharansky who sat in the Soviet gulag for many years and was defiant about his seeking freedom and not caving to...

    Sunday on CBSs Face the Nation, Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R-WI) said he believed conservatives have embraced tribal identity politics, in the style of leftist community organizer Saul Alinsky. Host John Dickerson asked, Youve seen some President Trumps rallies, do those rallies accentuate the things that unite us or are they do they do something very successful in politics which is sow division in the country? Do you see that happening at his rallies? Ryan said, Sometimes, yeah...

    A retired Army lieutenant colonel and Fox News contributor quit the network Tuesday, accusing it of fueling paranoia among its audience and serving as a propaganda machine for the Trump administration. Retired Lt. Col. Ralph Peters, a strategic analyst at Fox News, made the comments in an email to colleagues announcing that he had not renewed his contract, obtained by BuzzFeed. Four decades ago, I took an oath as a newly commissioned officer. I swore to support and defend the Constitution, and that oath did not expire when I took off my uniform. Today, I feel that Fox News is...

    President Trump's speech to the Conservative Political Action Conference started out as a relatively tame performance touting signature accomplishments such as tax cuts and judicial nominations, but it took an ugly turn as he moved to the topic of immigration, broadly painting those who come here as a result of the lottery system as "horrendous." The context was that Trump was lambasting Democrats for not agreeing to his terms as part of an immigration deal. Though they're willing to give him funding for the wall, he said, they won't budge on other issues, such as chain migration and ending the...

    Guns and I go back a long way. My father was a champion skeet shooter. A picture of him aiming his favorite pump skyward has pride of place in our living room. He owned fine rifles and shotguns, and he valued them. My first experience with pulling a trigger came late, by family standards. I was already 7 or 8 when my dad and “Uncle” George took me out back of Old Lily’s house and handed me a sawed-off shotgun (illegal then and now) kept handy for woodchucks and rattlesnakes. The recoil didn’t knock me off my feet, but my...

    A bipartisan pair of senators are urging President Trump to not allow a GOP memo accusing the Department of Justice (DOJ) and FBI of abusing their power to be publicly released. GOP Sen. Jeff Flake (Ariz.) and Democratic Sen. Christopher Coons (Del.) both members of the Judiciary Committee said Trump "should heed the warnings" from the DOJ and FBI, where top officials have taken issue with the forthcoming report. "The presidents apparent willingness to release this memo risks undermining U.S. intelligence-gathering efforts, politicizing Congress oversight role, and eroding confidence in our institutions of government," the senators said in...

    It appears that Russia is leading the way towards a much-needed rejection of "religious freedom" in the West: Source from NRO: http://www.nationalreview.com/corner/446966/russia-jehovahs-witnesses-ban-continues-putin-religious-persecution Russias crackdown on religious activity took a major step forward this week as the Justice Ministry banned Jehovahs Witnesses. Russia has steadily curtailed rights to evangelize in recent years, but this move signals their commitment to aggressively policing private religious activity. The Russian supreme court ruled that Jehovahs Witnesses amount to an extremist group, and therefore the government is shutting down their headquarters and local chapters, seizing their property, and banning them from meeting.

The God-Emperor follows through on one of Ronald Reagan's failed promises: Excerpt from the article at http://www.thewrap.com/trump-budget-killing-funding-pbs-npr-national-endowment-arts-public-broadcasting/ President Donald Trump made good on a long-time conservative goal in his first proposed budget Thursday morning, targeting the Corporation for Public Broadcasting and the National Endowments for the Arts and Humanities for complete elimination. Trumps budget would zero out the $445 million budget for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, a relatively small source of funding for programming and broadcast operations on public TV stations and NPR radio stations nationwide, per the Washington Post....
  • Glenn Beck: Trump is the GOP's Anthony Weiner

    Donald Trump is the right's Anthony Weiner, Beck told Business Insider, adding that this will only end in epic shame. I would hope that conservatives will take a step back and see who they are looking to as their champion, he said. For the good of our credibility I would beg people not to defend this or excuse this horrific behavior. If this was said in front of you, what would you say? If your son said this, what would you say? If it was said about your daughter or it was your wife, what would you say?" Beck asked.

    The Republican Partys attempt to treat Donald Trump as a normal political candidate would be laughable were it not so perilous to the republic. If only he would mouth the partys conservative principles, all would be well. But of course the entire Trump phenomenon has nothing to do with policy or ideology. It has nothing to do with the Republican Party, either, except in its historic role as incubator of this singular threat to our democracy. Trump has transcended the party that produced him. His growing army of supporters no longer cares about the party. Because it did not immediately...

    ... Trump promises a return to tariffs. He also promises a wall with Mexico, penalties against profitable American companies, skimming foreign remittances, and more. Trump does not mince words, and you have to respect his forthrightness. What each of these solutions has in common is a heavy-handed government that imposes its will at the price of consumer freedom. What right does a White House staffer have to tell you what you can buy and the extra price you have to pay if you choose the wrong product? Your freedom to trade to buy what you want is whats...
