  • How Today’s Left Is Promoting White Supremacy

    The Federalist ^ | August 5, 2020 | David Marcus
    By forcing Americans into racial and cultural boxes, the American left is stunting the growth of healthier and more equitable future. A staple of ancient Greek tragedy is a plot twist in which a protagonist attempting to avoid a negative result inadvertently brings that result into being. Over the last decade, the American left has been engaged in just such a tragedy. Critical race theory, with its arsenal of white privilege and cultural appropriation, was intended to decenter whiteness in our society and create more equitable and multicultural social norms. But in practice, the exact opposite is occurring. Let’s take...
  • Amid Cancel Culture, Now Academics Have Their Next Target: Pickup Trucks

    08/05/2020 5:21:03 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 89 replies ^ | August 1, 2020 | Brad Slager
    We have watched our society slide into a disturbing trend of permissiveness when it comes to assaulting and removing aspects of our culture. Between evictions of historical monuments, the eradicating of entertainment properties and the condemning of commonplace practices, we have almost become conditioned to accepting these efforts. Now we may be seeing the effects of this movement metastasizing. The Wall Street Journal delivered a lengthy treatise that looks at a normal aspect of American life, one that almost nobody looks at as being a nefarious component in our existence, with contempt: driving pickup trucks. Using "almost" is the qualifier here,...
  • From the People Who Brought You 2020

    08/04/2020 5:20:04 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 7 replies ^ | August 4, 2020 | Jason Killmeyer
    In the summer of 2016, America witnessed both peaceful protest and civil unrest after the killings of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile. Amidst the rhetoric, a string of police assassinations took place, notably in Dallas, Baton Rouge and later in Des Moines. That melodrama began a bitter election season with jaundiced press coverage leaving major swaths of the country unprepared for the idea that Donald Trump could really, actually win the presidency. That in turn led to the attacks on the election’s legitimacy launched almost immediately afterward and stirred by a media class casting about to explain what just occurred....
  • Vernon Jones has rude awakening for MSNBC who accused him of being a sellout

    Vernon Jones has a big message for the mainstream media and leftist network hosts. He said on his personal account, and with his message, the following: "I went on MSNBC and they accused me of being a sell-out. The Left is so racist that they think the only way a black man will think for himself is he’s paid? I’m tired of the bigotry. @realDonaldTrump - I’ve got your back!"
  • Nick Sandmann Wasn’t Supposed to Survive. He Was Meant to End Up Like Mike Adams.

    Nick Sandmann just turned 18 years old. And he’s settling a $250 million lawsuit with major media outlets that libeled him. Let’s send him our congratulations and prayers. I was prepping Robert Oscar Lopez’s powerful piece on Mike Adams for publication when I realized something chilling. Reading how the left hounded that talented writer to suicide (if indeed he wasn’t murdered) I heard in my head the media headline that never ran. Thanks be to God. “Racist Ringleader, Nicholas Sandmann, Dead at 17.” That’s what the media mob wanted. They as good as admitted it. When powerful reporters call a...
  • Biden and the Democrats Can't Win by Insulting Americans

    Jeb Bush once rebuked candidate Trump by sneering that the plain-speaking New Yorker couldn't insult his way to the White House. Of course, Jeb! was wrong! It turns out you can insult your way to the presidency, so long as you're insulting the same people Americans dream of insulting, too. Donald Trump insulted the D.C. mammon-worshippers who sold out American workers for communist China, and 68% of Americans agreed. He insulted a political class that had done nothing but aid and abet illegal immigration at the southern border, and 57% of Americans agreed. He insulted the self-appointed priests of political...

    American Thinker ^ | 24 Jul, 2020 | Deborah Franklin
    The issue of how some of the most privileged people in the world treat children is getting more traction. After the arrests of Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell, millions of ordinary people are critically examining the actions of Hollywood celebrities, titans of business, powerful politicians, media corporations, and other elite groups. Scenarios that previously seemed unthinkable are becoming more thinkable by the day. Chrissy Teigen is a popular model and actress who’s married to singer John Legend. She enjoys a lucrative career appearing in commercials and TV shows and hawking a product line at Target. She’s also a prolific writer...

    Donald Trump’s niece, Mary Trump, had a good day on Thursday. The media is thrilled with her anti-Trump book, Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man, and it sold fantastically well. Still, there are a couple of problems. The first is that Mary is probably lying and the second is that, contrary to what Mary and the Democrats want, it’s not going to change any minds. SNIP Here’s the back story. Trump’s older brother, Fred Trump Jr., was an alcoholic. He died in 1981, when he was only 42 years old, because of...

    Semi-News/Semi-Satire ^ | 12 July 2020 | John Semmens
    The faculty of Washington & Lee University are uncomfortable with the name and are recommending it be changed "to better conform with contemporary sensitivities." George Washington was an early benefactor and Robert E. Lee was a former president of the university. The three permanent Black faculty members at the university's law school want both names removed. Brandon Hasbrouck, an alumnus and associate professor of law suggested a compromise that would remove only Lee's name. As for what the new name should be, opinions are divided. History Professor Zinn Howard wants the school to be rechristened Marx & Lenin University "to...

    Let's start with a series of rhetorical questions related to the upcoming presidential elections: – Does a broken storefront add votes to the Democrats? – Does a burning car add votes to the Democrats? – Does a killed or wounded policeman add votes to the Democrats? – Does a toppled statue add votes to the Democrats? – Does an "autonomous zone" add votes to the Democrats? – Does a demolished synagogue or a destroyed church add votes to the Democrats? Simple human logic suggests that the answers to all these questions are negative. Why do Democrats do all of this?...

    PJ Media ^ | 07/08/2020 | Stacey Lennox
    I worked in Human Resources for 15 years. You may think this is the group that processes payroll and plans the company picnic. However, when I entered the profession, it was becoming a differentiating factor. The performance management model at General Electric had become a strategic advantage. The focus of my graduate program was measuring and maximizing human capital. Saying human capital is a dirty word now. However, at that time, it was viewed as the ability to measure the knowledge, skill, productivity, skill, and potential of individuals in the workforce. Then the goal was to translate that information into...
  • 7 Statues the Left Really Should Want to Tear Down if They Don’t Want to Be Hypocrites

    The protests and riots we’ve witnessed the past few weeks have resulted in a number of historical statues being torn down. There doesn’t seem to be much of a standard for what statues are offensive. Statues of Christopher Columbus and Confederate generals have been defaced, destroyed and torn down, as have statues of abolitionists. A statue of Abraham Lincoln is actually being considered for removal in Boston, Massachusetts. The apparent lack of consistency with which these statues and memorials have been targeted has many asking “What’s next?” But perhaps the better question is “Why not this?” These protestors think their...

    As I was talking Thursday with John Heubusch, the brilliant and dedicated executive director of the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation and Institute, it was really driven home to me what a dangerous period we are living through. ~snip~ It is the ignorance of the mob which allows its members to smear American heroes and destroy the memory of key personalities in the rise of freedom. In Boston, the ignorant and the hateful damaged the statue dedicated to Col. Robert Gould Shaw and the men of the 54th Massachusetts. As anyone familiar with American history – or who has at least...

    From 2016, fast forward to 2020The first half of the year 2020 was too eventful. A lot of extraordinary things have happened and will probably continue to occur in the second half of this year. Nevertheless, it will be useful for all of us to recall what the primary reason was that led to political turbulence on American soil again. The root cause of the 2020 events was the refusal of the Democrats to accept the results of the 2016 elections.Had Princess Hillary ascended to the throne, all the prerequisites for building an American version of the Gulag would be...

    The Woke are everywhere. They're in our schools, in government, and at our places of work. More importantly, the Woke are on the move. They are coming for you, for me, and for anyone else who does not subscribe to their quasi-religion. Don't fool yourself — you are not safe. The Woke are at war with anyone who opposes them, and it does not matter if you just want to be left alone. You will have to bend the knee or fight. Here are a dozen strategies that you can start using right now. 1. Adopt the right mindset and...

    American Thinker ^ | 15 Jun, 2020 | Andrea Widburg
    Trump is careful to pick his battles. Sticking to the June 19 date for his rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma was an unnecessary battle, so the rally is currently set for June 20, a date that even leftists can't challenge. Despite the date switch, it looks as if over 800,000 people have signed up to attend. Faced with that datum, the media have stepped up their efforts to try to reinstate Wuhan Virus fear. When the Trump campaign announced that Trump's first post-lockdown rally would be in Tulsa, Oklahoma, on June 19, leftists, both within and outside the media, tried to...

    Every time some supposed conservative or Republican explains why he or she can’t vote for President Trump, I wonder if they have thought about the alternative – the Biden-Schumer-Pelosi machine. Our choice in November will not be between President Trump and President Perfection. It will be between President Trump and a nightmare that would end America as we have known it. If former Vice President Joe Biden wins, it means the turnout in favor of Democrats will be such that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., remains leader of a Democratic majority in the House. It also means that Democrats will...

    American Thinker ^ | June 11, 2020 | Gary Gindler
    Do some people really think that the impeachment, the corona-gulag, and the pogroms all occurred in America one after another in a completely random pattern of events? Why did pre-planned and synchronized riots and looting suddenly arise? Because the adventure with the coronavirus hysteria failed. Why did the coronavirus hysteria suddenly lead to a corona-gulag being created? Because the impeachment failed. Why did impeachment suddenly arise? Because "Russiagate" (or, rather, Obamagate) failed. Why did "Russiagate" arise? Because leftism was defeated in the 2016 elections. The preparatory work has been well done, comrade Democrats! In 2020, the Democrats managed to simultaneously...

    Cops has been taken off the force: The long-running reality TV pioneer has been cancelled at Paramount Network following a nearly seven-year run there, our sister site Deadline is reporting. “Cops is not on the Paramount Network, and we don’t have any current or future plans for it to return,” a network spokesperson said in a statement. The groundbreaking docuseries, which followed real law enforcement professionals from around the country as they patrolled the local streets and arrested criminals, debuted back in 1989 on Fox, airing there on Saturday nights for more than two decades until it was cancelled in...
  • Spiritual or Political?...on Leftism

    Evidently it is very offensive for some who read this blog, when I decry “the Left”, and when I espouse somewhat of a conservative outlook. More than a few of my brothers and sisters in Christ have challenged me that I am being “political”, and not Spiritual. I appreciate the concern , and the willingness of those concerned to call me out on what they think is a drift away from the Prophecy analysis and Biblical Exposition, which I usually offer. “Faithful are the wounds of a friend”. I don’t consider myself ‘political’, I think of myself as ‘Spiritual’ ....
