    This is all a long preface for setting up notice of Thomas Edsall’s column in the New York Times today, Over the past 18 years, the Democratic electorate has moved steadily to the left, as liberals have displaced moderates. . . From 2001 to 2018, the share of Democratic voters who describe themselves as liberal has grown from 30 to 50 percent, according to data provided by Lydia Saad, a senior editor at the Gallup Poll. . . Well-educated whites, especially white women, are pushing the party decisively leftward. According to Gallup, the share of white Democrats calling themselves liberal...

    Florida gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum graduated from an Oakland, California-based training school for progressive revolutionaries that has spawned a list of activists who have gone on to become the who’s who of the far-left leadership world, with many taking senior positions at organizations financed by billionaire George Soros. In scores of cases, graduates of the Rockwood Leadership Institute founded or directed notorious Soros-financed activist groups, such as Black Lives Matter, Media Matters for America, MoveOn.org and the Tides Foundation, one of the nation’s largest funders of progressive groups. Soros’s own Open Society Foundations sent top staff to Rockwood for training....

    The Left’s Religious War Against America What’s really driving leftist anger and hatred. October 12, 2018 Daniel Greenfield Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is an investigative journalist and writer focusing on the radical left and Islamic terrorism. 69% of progressives are ashamed to be Americans, but 63% are proud of their political ideology instead. The majority don’t attend religious services, but 73% list politics as their preoccupation. Religiously unaffiliated voters are the most excited about attending political rallies and marches. Numbers from one poll showed that, "religiously unaffiliated Democrats were more than twice as likely...

    American Thinker ^ | 12 Oct, 2018 | William L. Gensert
    Hillary Clinton said it best: "civility can start again" only when the Democrats regain power. And "the only thing that the Republicans seem to recognize and respect is strength." Eric Holder, the Obama mini-me, wasn't far behind when he said, "When they go low, we kick them." He meant not only Republicans but anyone who disagrees with their plans. The Democrats have overtly committed to violence. If we needed further evidence, we need only look at what Antifa did in Portland the other day, where the police faded away, ceding the streets to Antifa, whose members blocked streets and ordered...

    The way I see it, the Democrat political party is made up of Socialists, sexual perverts, druggies, criminals, Muslims and clueless people who would circumvent our laws and try to destroy our Christian nation – some just to have their fifteen minutes of supposed fame by burning and defecating on the American flag – in public. Democrats are so determined to destroy the current administration that they will say or do anything to do so. Things have gotten so out of hand that Democrats will even disrupt Senator Cruz’s meal at a restaurant or issue death threats against political opponents...

    When I was in graduate school, I learned a lot about the left. One lesson was that while most liberals and conservatives abide by society's rules of order and decency, most leftists do not feel bound to live by these same rules. I watched the way leftist Vietnam War protesters treated fellow students and professors. I watched left-wing students make "nonnegotiable demands" of college administrations. I saw the Black Panthers engage in violence – including torture and murder – and be financially rewarded by leftists. Today, we watch leftist mobs scream profanities at professors and deans, and shut down conservative...

    PJ Media ^ | September 28, 2018 | J. Christian Adams
    Supporters of Brett Kavanuagh may have less in common with Kavanaugh’s foes than Senator John C. Calhoun had in common with abolitionist Senator Charles Sumner. Sure, they differed over slavery, but their experiences of family, faith and culture, and their views of America had more in common than the cultural, religious and political chasm that now divides us. That’s why Kavanaugh’s second appearance before the Senate Judiciary Committee not only shattered the coordinated onslaught of his opponents, but brought sharp focus elsewhere. Kavanaugh won because he fought back. Kavanaugh won because he was unwilling to suffer from the ritual...

Chuck Schumer, and an-ex senior official in Eric Holder's Justice Department. He's also now the public face of a left-wing group devoted to defeating President Trump's judicial nominees, with the most urgent priority being doing whatever is necessary to prevent Republicans from filling the current Supreme Court vacancy. In an interview with the New York Times, Fallon unambiguously admits what the Brett Kavanaugh destruction project is...

    RUSH: First, Jim Geraghty. Folks, this is so right on the money. “The more time I spend covering politics,” Mr. Geraghty writes, “the more I’m convinced that a significant chunk of grassroots political activists aren’t really arguing about politics at all. These folks are actually grappling with personal psychological issues and projecting it onto the world of politics. Every problem they had with a parent is projected onto authority figures. “Every religious person who ever scolded them or made them feel guilty becomes the embodiment of organized religion and demonstrates its menace. Because they’ve had a bad experience with a...

    (The other day) Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was in Israel to receive an award for her commitment to tikkun olam (“to heal the world” in Hebrew,) a spiritual concept that progressive Jews have long (distorted) so that their malleable religious views could better align with leftist orthodoxy. It’s the sort of convenient philosophy that allows traditions to be subsumed by the vagaries of contemporary politics. So it is with an increasing number of Democrats and the Constitution: a document they seem believe must bend to the will of their policy preferences rather than preserve legal continuity, limited government, individual liberty,...

    WSJ ^ | 23 Sep 2018 | Shelby Steele
    Even before President Trump’s election, hatred had begun to emerge on the American left—counterintuitively, as an assertion of guilelessness and moral superiority. At the Women’s March in Washington the weekend after Mr. Trump’s inauguration, the pop star Madonna said, “I have thought an awful lot of blowing up the White House.” Here hatred was a vanity, a braggadocio meant to signal her innocence of the sort of evil that, in her mind, the White House represented. (She later said the comment was “taken wildly out of context.”) For many on the left a hateful anti-Americanism has become a self-congratulatory lifestyle....

    From the article: "some of the most important of the Soviet Union’s memetic weapons. Here is that list again: There is no truth, only competing agendas. All Western (and especially American) claims to moral superiority over Communism/Fascism/Islam are vitiated by the West’s history of racism and colonialism. There are no objective standards by which we may judge one culture to be better than another. Anyone who claims that there are such standards is an evil oppressor. The prosperity of the West is built on ruthless exploitation of the Third World; therefore Westerners actually deserve to be impoverished and miserable. Crime...

    A relatively unpublicized and unpromoted online statement for Christians to affirm that they are defying the “social justice” agenda of some American churches, and rejecting “values borrowed from secular culture,” is surging. Introduced only days ago, by Thursday afternoon it had nearly 5,000 signatures from individuals and groups, including churches. The Daily Wire said the “Statement on Social Justice & the Gospel” even is attracting opposition, such as the criticism from Ryan Burton King, of Grace Baptist in the United Kingdom, who charged that the signers are “not at all ‘getting’ what those whom it primarily addresses are saying.” WND...

    AUSTIN (KXAN) — Advocates say the Austin Independent School District is not doing enough to help Black and Latino students succeed in east Austin schools. On Wednesday, parents and community activists released a list of demands of AISD, including allowing east Austin to form its own school district. The group outlined three specific actions it wants from AISD: AISD must do all in its power to improve the academic achievement of its minority students. The district is currently not doing this. The compensation and benefits for teachers of minority students, particularly those in Title I schools, must be substantially upgraded...

    Perhaps the strangest thing in modern discourse is that anytime something bad in our country's history is mentioned, the left paints it as uniquely American. Yet, anytime there is a remarkable and heroic event, the left ascertains it was an achievement accomplished by all of humanity. This was evidenced yet again by Hollywood’s portrayal of Neil Armstrong landing on the moon in 1969 as a "human achievement" and deciding to omit the iconic scene of Neil Armstrong planting the American flag in outer space in an upcoming movie, First Man. As Cortney covered yesterday Ryan Gosling, the Canadian actor...

    One of the most important books of the 20th century -- it remains a best-seller 59 years after it was first published -- is "Man's Search for Meaning" by Viktor Frankl. Marx saw man's primary drive as economic, and Freud saw it as sex. But Frankl believed -- correctly, in my opinion -- that the greatest drive of man is meaning. One can be poor and chaste and still be happy. But one cannot be bereft of meaning and be happy -- no matter how rich or how sexually fulfilled one may be. The greatest provider of meaning for the...

    There was no honeymoon for the unlikely winner of the 2016 election. Progressives have in succession tried to sue to overturn Trump’s victory using several different approaches. First on the bogus claim of fraudulent voting machines. Then they sought to subvert the Electoral College by bullying electors into renouncing their respective states’ votes. Massive protests and boycotts marked the inauguration. Then there were articles of impeachment introduced in the House. Some sued to remove Trump on a warped interpretation of the Emoluments Clause of the Constitution. Others brought in psychiatrists to testify that Trump was ill, disabled, or insane and...

    If capitalism had a comeback in 2016, then why are we seeing a rise in socialist supremacy supporters in 2018? Capitalism trumped socialism in our last presidential election. Donald Trump won the 2016 election in large part due to the American working class. Hardworking Americans wanted to keep what they earned (capitalism) as opposed to having to give it up, by force, and watch that money be given away to those who didn't earn it at all (socialism). Andy Puzder gave this victory a great name: The Capitalist Comeback. The election of a president who supported capitalism became an issue...
