While it would be easy enough to point to a political shift in leadership within the boardrooms as the reason for this change of allegiance, I believe that it is a problem goes deeper than a mere change of party registration. Mega corporations do not value the same things nowadays.
9,944 Arizona Republicans did not change their party because of what happened at the Capitol or former President Trump challenging the election results. 9,944 Arizona Republicans changed their party because they are watching Maricopa county defy an audit request from State Leadership and Republicans not saying with a unified voice that enough is enough, we want a transparent election.
While we scanned the horizon for enemies, the true enemies were conspiring right behind us. The people that colluded with Democrats in the 2020 election are not foreign nationals, but people the American people have been led to believe that they could trust; the media, corporations and our government.
While the new party might be able to win some seats in local elections, it would be years before they won a state or national seat of consequence. This seems like a lot of pain, aggravation and an overreaction, especially in light of the fact that it would be far easier to simply take over the GOP.
It is not just the piss poor response from senior officials to the requests from the people on the ground for assistance that makes these situations similar. It is also the response in the immediate wake of the events where it appears that some in government with their allies in media are more focused on building a narrative versus telling the uncomfortable truth.
No, the time has come for us as Conservatives to act. It is time to divorce Big Tech and make a conscious choice to uncouple our lives from their fascistic tendencies. While I have never been much of a boycott person, I believe it is time for Conservatives to steal a page out of the Left’s playbook and create a BDS (Boycott, Divest & Sanction) movement of our own.
In February of 2017 I originally wrote this blog after watching the violence at Berkeley Campus where “Anti-Fascism” protestors were literally beating the opposition with their flag poles. No they were not engaging in an indigenous ritual of greeting that proceeds civil discourse, they were beating people who intellectually disagreed with them. I predicted then what we are seeing now with the culmination of the Left attempting to remove the 1st amendment to stifle any opposition.
Thus, began the longest running smear campaign in human history. Balance and objectivity went out the window with many of these media outlets running negative Trump narratives over 93% of the time. They sold their souls and credibility and had only one objective in mind… Get Trump. The problem was they were simply bad at it.
President Trump has conceded. While officially the election was over at 3:24 AM this morning when Congress certified the election results, the corpse of the campaign wandered around another 16 hours until President Trump made his concession speech. OK to be fair the corpse has been shambling around for a couple of weeks. While a Biden Administration is now a certainty, I believe a lot of us who supported President Trump need to evaluate what comes next.
The key to making this an easy victory was simply supporting President Trump and allowing him to take every constitutional action that he could. Those that fought will be remember, those that did not will most likely face stiff primary challenges supported by a base that will never forget.
Enjoy your friends and family this holiday and most importantly recharge because as we head into 2021 regardless of who wins this election, we have a hell of a fight on our hands and we need to be at the top of our game. God Bless, Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and thank you to everyone who has given over your attention to read my little corner of the internet.
Who crafted this monstrosity? Which member of Congress is going to take a stand against turning illegal streaming into a felony and deny the American people the help they need? (As an aside, why does a budget bill include increased penalties for illegal streaming? Seriously?)
Republicans – A failing political party whose original parts need to be replace to one extent or another by Patriots that perform the same functions… better.
The Republicans – Political Party – A party barely alive – Gentleman we can rebuilt it – We have the patriotism – We have the capability to build the first political party for the people – The Republican Party will be that Party – Better than it was before – Better – Stronger – Braver
Really think about this… now ask yourself what precedent does this set if judges can begin deciding cases not on the law or the merits of the argument, but simply on the fact that the side that disagrees with them might burn down a Target.
I came across an article on Gateway Pundit “Google Search Results Appear Broken – Many Simply Queries No Longer Make Sense” that piqued my curiously. As a practical experiment, I decided to check their claims and here is what I found. Google is Racist.
What happens when learning takes a backseat to social justice? What happens when our colleges and universities have become more concerned with Leftist indoctrination than preparing their students for the challenges that they will face when entering the workforce? What happens when teachers are more concerned about pushing their political agendas than exposing their students to a variety of ideas in order to build their critical thinking skills?
It is no wonder that I get annoyed when I hear those on the Left tell me how Obamacare is candy and roses and now years later try to rewrite the history of how the law was passed. As Republicans spin up another run at repealing the ACA here are the most common lies that you will hear from the Left.
This weekend #BlackLivesMatter took to the streets of Saint Louis to protest the acquittal of former police offer Jason Stockley. Jason Stockley a former police officer had been charged with murder in the shooting of Anthony Lamar Smith at the end of a high-speed pursuit. The tone of the protests oscillated between peaceful marches during the day and violent rioting when the sun went down. The organizers tried to sell this as a protest against injustice where Smith a black man was wantonly gun down by a white officer and that this is typical behavior that occurs on a daily basis across the United States. Predictably this narrative leaves out several facts.
In a week that I have heard people say some incredibly stupid stuff like Ben Shapiro is a Nazi and Dr. Ben Carson is a “Black White Supremacist” there is one lie that keeps getting repeated by unthinking Leftists that flies in the face of every fact that they see daily. Several times this week I have seen people repeating the nonsense that building a wall was pointless because walls do not work.
Let’s talk about the political realities. If no compromise solution can be agreed upon then there will be no wall, no Raise Act, no eVerify and in 6 months’ time those illegal aliens protected by the DACA EO will start becoming eligible for deportation. It is also feasible that Democrats take the house and President Trump then spends the next two years fighting impeachment. This is the reality.
Senator Kirsten Gillibrand became the latest Democratic Senator to signal support for the upcoming “Medicare for All” bill due to be released on Wednesday. Senator Gillibrand joins other far Left Senators Bernie Sanders and Kamala Harris in planning to drag America into the hell that is socialism by turning over around one-sixth of our economy to morons and bankrupting the country. Some of you may object to the term moron, but I would argue that it might not be critical enough to indicate what a disaster this would be for our lives.
When TV personalities spout off in this manner it proves my point. Her position leaves zero possibility that she might be wrong and that the climate alarmist may be overstating the threat or the threat may not even be directly attributed to humans. This is the position of a cult member who can no longer rationally debate an idea. Where she uses the antidotal evidence of Hurricane Irma to justify her rational one very strong does not prove the point that all hurricanes have gotten stronger suddenly.
The Illegal Aliens Brought Here As Children (IABHAC) are in a pretty horrible situation. There is no denying this fact. However, in the past two days I have heard every argument in defense of DACA and the Left still doesn’t have a leg to stand on with this issue. You can try to dress up the facts, but in the end how you feel is not a legal argument. I have yet to hear a convincing argument that President Trump was wrong to end DACA as most of what I have seen argued are recycled talking points that are tied to the emotional nature of this issue.
So, I have a question for CNN. If you are not Very Fake News, then how do you explain one of your reporters getting caught staging a FAKE rescue? I have seen several media outlets stage stories before. The staging of the Muslim Protests after the terror attack in London and the CNN anchor whispering what she wants the debate “panel member” to say jump to the front. As despicable as these acts are they pale in comparison to not only staging a news story about a rescue, but inserting your organization into the story as the would-be heroes.
The latest narrative making the rounds among the Left leaning media is… President Trump did not show enough empathy during his Texas visit. Of course, this story is being pushed by the mainstream media because it furthers their narrative that there is something wrong with President Trump mentally. It is Rule #5 of Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals” in that it is only meant to further ridicule the President and not report the facts. These accusations are offered up with the thinnest of evidence.
This weekend ANTIFA once again was able to use the rioters veto to get both the Patriot Prayer and March against Marxism gatherings cancelled. The organizers of both events cancelled the events after receiving threats of violence. While the organizers did the right thing in taking these threats seriously and putting the safety of the rally goers first and foremost, we have to wonder when will it finally be enough. ANTIFA is creating an unsustainable situation in which the constitutional rights of Conservatives are being violated on a weekly basis. Every week brings us more horrifying images and videos of our fellow Americans being beaten for their political beliefs.
What happens in the coming months when ANTIFA finally takes it too far and they kill someone who is protesting, but has zero affiliation with any hate groups? Are the media, Democrats and sadly many Republicans going to condemn this organization or will they simply join in ANTIFA in Step 3 above and slander that person as a Nazi? At this point in time I honestly believe that the latter is the most likely scenario.
Moral cowardice? I have heard multiple versions of this type of language today and I am now convinced that the Left has a warped sense of what bravery entails. President Trump could have gone to that press conference and walked back his first statement and said exactly the same things that the media and Democrats have been screeching about for three days. This would have been “moral cowardice”.
If a neo-Nazi scumbag craps himself in the woods… how long does President Trump have to disavow? It is a trick question according to the dinosaur media as President Trump is a Nazi. For years there has been a double standard in the old media structure. They were filled with Leftist activists, but they at least tried to maintain the mask of impartiality. Never has the radical Leftwing media bias been so clear and so damaging to our society. When Republicans were shot on a ballfield, the media and Democrats were quick to condemn the rhetoric on all sides for causing the incident.
Let me be as clear as I can possibly be… what happened yesterday was a terrorist attack. White supremacists are scumbags. So are black supremacists, brown supremacists and Asian supremacists. Any person that traffics in ideas that believes that their race is superior to others or calls for the annihilation of another person’s group based solely on race is a scumbag. Using political violence to intimidate and silence the opposition is disgusting and un-American.
The problem with painting these formerly reasonable positions as the extremist viewpoint is it becomes an unjust character attack and ensures that no further debate can occur. The Left has simplified the debate into a binary choice… you either agree with them or you are a Nazi. This politically expedient argument has left many who consider themselves a Classical Liberal behind as media and politicians abandon long held positions to go chasing after the votes and money of the very vocal minority in the base that has careened very far to the Left recently.
This overreaction by the media, Democrats and Hollywood elite in a grand irony does not erode the President’s support from the base as intended, but has the exact opposite effect as many supporters then move to defend the President from the hyperbolic screeching. While many of us disagree with the President on many issues, it is difficult to express those disagreements because the Leftist hysteria always seems one degree worse. When the President makes a mistake, the media in an attempt to capitalize on this then overreaches and finds themselves the victim of the Trumperang Effect.
The only way that the millennial can avoid cognitive dissonance between what they learned from academia and their experience is through an elaborate process of confirmation bias where they begin painting innocuous statements and actions with the board brush of white nationalism. In the last year alone I have seen articles arguing that the following things are racist; Pokeman Go, historically accurate films like Dunkirk, the “truth”, a green cartoon frog, the “OK” symbol, prioritizing national security, standing for the national anthem, making any other argument for immigration reform that is not based on open borders, believing that the government should be smaller, displaying the American flag, basically disagreeing with any Leftist argument and milk.
There can be no clearer dichotomy that represents the Regressive Left’s mind then when they wax poetic about the value of diversity and predictably react in a totalitarian fashion when faced with intellectual diversity. Google’s recent firing of an employee who expressed a dissenting opinion in a 10 page memo that went viral, ironically on the lack of tolerance for intellectual diversity, should frighten Americans not only because this is an American Corporation, but one that serves as a gateway to the internet where millions go to find information, news and to express our views.
While I feel much of the scorn that we heap upon these collegiate children is duly deserved for their continuous screeching and asinine new way Fascist positions on free speech, we must not forget to save some for the professors. These wannabe intellectuals that haunt these Leftist indoctrination centers who have forgotten that their job is to prepare students, much like University of Georgia’s own Dr. Richard Watson who as reported by Campus Reform is now allowing students to select their grades if they feel stressed by the one that they earned.
I make a point of every day forcing myself to face the vitriol and hate to peer into the Liberal Media bubble. When I do I am looking for signs of hope or any indication that at some point that they are going to step back from the ledge and do some honest reporting for a change. It is days like today when I watch pundits on CNN saying that you get Venezuela “when you have Donald Trump without James Madison” that hope almost disappears.
Wow Senator Feinstein you certainly make a compelling case… if only she had not misrepresented the facts. Her position is that trimming back the amount of immigration would cripple the agricultural industry, but per the US Department of Agriculture, “The average number of hired farmworkers has steadily declined over the last century, from roughly 3.4 million to just over 1 million.” This number has held steady over the last decade thanks in large part to modernization and automation…
The immigration system should not be used as a recruitment tool to gain political power as we have seen from the Democrats, nor should it be a way to import cheap labor to drive down wages of Americans as we have seen from Rinos. The true purpose of American immigration is to bring the best and brightest from around the world to make America a better place. Simply importing the poor from around the world to our shores who do not speak the language, have no available means with which to support themselves and who have no intention of integrating into our great society places an unnecessary burden on Americans who are already struggling to achieve the American dream.
Dear Jeff Flake – There is No Such Thing as a Globalist, Neocron, Big Government, Open Borders Advocating Conservative
Jeff Flake’s new book is not even out and I already hate it. In most cases, a Rino writing a book ahead of a reelection campaign would have drawn zero reaction from me. However, Jeff Flake who has always been a moderate, who leans either left or right with the frequency of a weathervane, trying to speak on behalf of Conservatives is laughable and insulting.
The secret of their success lies in the way that they have managed to fundamentally shift the language; for all intents and purposes by outlawing words and phrases through the creation of narratives that those words are racist, sexist or insensitive. Once accomplished those words are replaced with benign euphemisms that help the modern SJW sell arguments that promote their current cause de jour.
Here is the plain and simple truth for Republicans and Conservatives alike; you are going to get next to no help from Democrats making health care better. Despite John McCain’s calls for bipartisanship, no Democrats are going to come to the table in any serious fashion as long as any one of the sacred cows in the entitlement family is on the table. You don’t have to take my word for this when you can hear it from the batty senile horse’s mouth on Fox News Sunday.
It is a simple fact that Obamacare is not working for most of America. The government which moves at glacial speeds and with ponderous inefficiency should be kept as far away as possible from health care, but now the Democrats are declaring that the next step is a single payer healthcare system. Obamacare took a system that was working well for the majority of citizens, added massive government controls and regulations to insure 30 million people. In the end, they only succeeded in adding 12 million people to the rolls and FUBARed coverage for the rest of us. The Democrats who created this mess by adding government now believe the way to fix it… add more government.
I must give credit where it is due as The Daily Caller has been the one media outlet to consistently report on this story and Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s bizarre behavior as it relates to this case. When I say strange behavior, I am not using that word hyperbolically, I mean as each layer of the story gets peeled back it becomes another “WTH” moment in a “WTF” story. Let’s recap some of the odd parts of this story that the media refuses to report…
Were you aware of the fact that for a man to serve in the military he must have at least one testicle. Oddly enough they even require that if you only have one testicle that you must be able to inform the MEPS station during your medical screening what exactly happened to your missing testicle. Being a Eunuch is a condition that prevents one from serving in the military… or did it.
I seriously cannot believe that I wrote that sentence because it is true. We have a former administration official encouraging Americans to commit illegals acts and jeopardize national security and the safety of our intelligence sources around the world to hurt President Trump and bring back to life a Russian conspiracy story that despite a year of investigation has yielded one 20-minute meeting between a Russian lawyer, with more ties to the Democratic Party, and Donald Trump Jr. where they ended up discussing… Russian adoptions.
There are four innocuous little words that when used together in a sentence always raise my hackles; “For the greater good”. Everything Hitler did was “for the greater good” and it resulted in the deaths of 50 million people. Every Communist regime has always been based on the concept of being “for the greater good” and in the 20th century alone they killed 94 million people across the planet. We can observe the results of the Venezuelan “for the greater good” experiment in real time where significant portions of the population are starving and they are being brutalized for speaking out in protest. It seems to me that these four inoffensive words, instead of being the harbinger of equity and fairness have been at the root of more human misery and suffering than any others in our history.
Today President Trump has officially been in office for 6 months. I figured I needed a laugh so I decided to mosey on over to CNN to see how the Fake Journalists at our favorite whipping network of ridicule would mark this occasion. Imagine my shock when I saw the article titled, “President Trump’s first six months: by the numbers” as one of the leading stories. Finally, I thought CNN is going to do some actual journalism, but I was wrong.
If only some wise political sage could have spoken to the Democratic Party at the beginning of the year and let them know that by the time the year was halfway through that they would have one of their worst months in terms of political donations. If only someone had been smart enough to predict that their current strategies, vitriol, obstructionism and hateful nonsense was not a path back to power. If only someone with foresight and common sense had been able to interpret what the American people were saying to Democrats… oh wait I did all that.
I cannot go a week without bumping into some hipster doofus poetizing about the glories of socialism on the internet. Of course, when you point out that the iPhone, Twitter and Internet that they are using to try to spread the gospels of socialism are all the byproducts of capitalism it usually triggers an ad hominem attack for challenging their world view with simple logic. Now as we see the numbers of millennials creep north of 50% that do not support capitalism, I only hope that that Generation Z is as Conservative as predicted and us middle age free thinkers hang on long enough to allow them to reach voting age.
