  • The flat-Earth conspiracy is spreading around the globe. Does it hide a darker core?

    "I don't want to be a flat Earther," David Weiss says, his voice weary as he reflects on his personal awakening. "Would you wake up in the morning and want everyone to think you're an idiot?" But Weiss is a flat Earther. Ever since he tried and failed to find proof of the Earth's curve four years ago, he's believed with an evident passion that our planet is both flat and stationary -- and it's turned his world upside down. "I absolutely freaked out," Weiss tells CNN in a phone interview. "It literally whips the rug out from underneath you."...

    The Nation published an “anti-endorsement” of 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, Thursday, calling on the former Vice President to “withdraw from the race” so the Democratic Party has a chance against President Donald Trump. In an editorial, The Nation wrote that Biden’s chance against President Trump in 2020 “has become increasingly threadbare.”

    Have you ever wondered how far left the Democratic Party has gone since 2008, let alone 2016? Well, as an example, former President Barack Obama likely would have been chased off the campaign trail had he made some recent comments of his as a 2020 Democratic primary candidate. On Tuesday, President Obama told an audience at the Obama Foundation Summit that they need to get over being "woke" and realize that simply judging people and "casting stones" does not equate to activism. "This idea of purity and you’re never compromised and you’re always politically woke and all that stuff, you...
  • Will the Real Mitt Romney Please Shut Up?

    Four years ago, Donald Trump’s candidacy was the craziest thing any of us had ever seen. But since then, his opponents have gone so far off the deep end that they have made him seem the sensible alternative. For whatever reason – jealousy? bad advisers? – Mitt Romney hasn’t come to the realization the rest of us have: that President Trump is now the thin orange line between order and chaos. Happy enough to accept the president’s endorsement last year, Romney quickly turned on him to become a virtue-signaling headline-chaser. He began his Senate tenure with an attack piece in...

    Beto O'Rourke is the Jar Jar Binks of the Democratic field. Maybe in all of politics. The concept of Beto, like Jar Jar, was carefully planned and cultivated. Beto was a creation of the media who saw him as the new floppy-haired hope a few years ago. He transcended modern politics with cool, Generation X flare and almost gave Ted Cruz a run for his money in Texas.

    Washington Examiner ^ | 09-26-19 | Rob Crilly
    President Trump and his aides are privately worried that impeachment investigations will stifle administration work, such as efforts to procure a North American trade deal, even as they publicly gird for a fight, according to multiple insiders. But operatives on his reelection campaign see an opportunity to mobilize the base, setting up a divide between them and White House aides trying to head off damage. Trump’s confidants charge that the Democrats are acting in bad faith and trying to stymie the president’s chances to advance some policies before the campaign shoves everything else aside. Trump himself unsuccessfully tried to prevent...

  • Lincoln: The Founders did not make America racist or slaver. They inherited it that way

    See the Lincoln-Douglas debate #6. Stephen Douglas: We then adopted a free State Constitution, as we had a right to do. In this State we have declared that a negro shall not be a citizen, and we have also declared that he shall not be a slave. We had a right to adopt that policy. Missouri has just as good a right to adopt the other policy. I am now speaking of rights under the Constitution, and not of moral or religious rights. I do not discuss the morals of the people of Missouri, but let them settle that matter...

    Truthdig ^ | 22 August 2019 | Danny Sjursen
    Once upon a time, Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard traveled to Syria and met with the strongman President Bashar Assad. She considered her willingness to engage all sides of the country’s bloody civil war to be an important step toward peace. For this bold action, she was widely pilloried at the time and considered by some an authoritarian apologist or outright traitor. The claim was repeated again recently by the ever-so-mainstream California Sen. Kamala Harris, a fellow Democratic presidential hopeful. The attacks on Gabbard’s Syria record have been quite regular among Washington insiders, who considered the congresswoman foolish. But was she?...

    Colin Kaepernick. Remember him? Below-average quarterback. Above-average poseur. Not “activist,” not really. Activists actually say stuff. Kaepernick almost never says anything. He’s like the Queen or most popes — you have to read the deep-background musings of supposed members of his inner circle to get a clue as to what he might be thinking. Kaepernick hasn’t played in the NFL since 2016, when anyway he was merely the disappointing starter on its worst team, and given that dozens of quarterbacks have entered the league since then and that he’s been gathering rust like the Tin Woodman for three years, he...

July 29, 2019 | Jerry Bergman Darwinists Proclaim Molecules-to-Man Evolution is a Proven Fact— But scientists are not sure about the best diet and the efficacy of new drugs! by Dr Jerry Bergman Evolutionists are so confident that molecules-to-man evolution is true that court decisions have contentedly ruled that, because this view is consensus science and unequivocally true, it must be taught as fact. As a result, academic institutions think that both teachers and professors can be justly terminated if they do not teach it as fact.

    When House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler and Speaker Nancy Pelosi claimed that the United States had been plunged into a "constitutional crisis," a large swath of the media took to plying this fantasy for them. "Ever wonder what a constitutional crisis looks like? Well, open your eyes," CNN's Don Lemon explained to his viewers. "The president of the United States is just blowing right through our system of checks and balances, the very thing that is supposed to keep our Congress, the judiciary, and the executive branch working, which means our country working." None of this is remotely true....

    American Thinker ^ | 05/03/2019 | Thomas Lifson
    MSN News reprints a paywalled Los Angeles Times story on a startling development: California’s population growth has tumbled to the slowest rate in the state’s history.  The wonderful weather, scenery, and other attractions that have drawn people since 1849 no longer work. In asking themselves why this should be the case, writers Javier Panzar and Sarah Parvini manage to overlook the factor to is uppermost in my mind as I contemplate ending more than 30 years’ residence in the Golden State: the highest in the nation taxes, contrasted with the dismal state of the highways, schools, and other public...

    A new poll shows a third of New York residents plan to move because they can't afford to stay. Businesses that are closing cited "economic" reasons for their decision. They represent a wide array of industries including a biotech company, investment bank, internet services, commercial printer, and a Walmart online ordering processor. New York governor Andrew Cuomo (D.), who is still reeling from the loss of Amazon, told CBS local news on Wednesday he was "sick to my stomach" and it was the "greatest tragedy I have seen since I've been in government." Amazon's deal would have provided $27 billion...

    DB Daily Update ^ | David Blackmon
    The Afternoon Campaign Update (Because the Campaign Never Ends) Just a week into his presidency, I briefly advocated in this space that President Trump should cancel the idiotic, 45 year-old tradition of holding daily press briefings at the White House. In May of 2017, I penned a longer piece on the subject that can be read at this link: Kill the White House Press Briefings Now. For those too lazy or time-constrained to read the whole thing, here is part of what I said in that piece: “The briefings lost all meaning in 2009, when the fake news media decided...

    President Trump said Tuesday that he told White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders to stop giving daily press briefings due to dishonest and hostile reporting. "The reason Sarah Sanders does not go to the 'podium' much anymore is that the press covers her so rudely & inaccurately, in particular certain members of the press," Trump tweeted. "I told her not to bother, the word gets out anyway! Most will never cover us fairly & hence, the term, Fake News!" The tweet followed White House spokesman Hogan Gidley's Tuesday morning appearance on Fox News, during which Gidley avoided giving a direct...

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is already making enemies in the House Democratic Caucus — and some of its members are mounting an operation to bring the anti-establishment, democratic socialist with 2.2 million Twitter followers into the fold. Just one week into her congressional tenure, freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is ruffling feathers within her own party — which is now mounting a behind-the-scenes effort to rein in the social media star. The Bronx-born Democratic socialist has racked up a bevy of complaints from her colleagues, including incumbents who aren’t pleased that she is backing a campaign to mount primary challenges against moderate Democrats,...

    On Jan. 3 2019, current House Speaker Paul Ryan gets to retire at the ripe old age of 48, but don't worry, as an entrenched Washington D.C. politician, we won't be done with him at that point. He has many years of lobbying for six or seven figure salaries ahead of him until he is inevitably recycled by the GOP establishment to do what he does best: undermine and sabotage the 'America First' agenda of President Donald Trump. Ryan has done such a poor job that it has become impossible for even the paid sycophants of Conservative Inc. to whitewash...
