Students Love The “Green New Deal” Until They Hear What’s In It

The problem for Democrats is now obvious: Having created their army of brainwashed little climate change monsters, the have to keep moving Left to satisfy their appetite for bigger government, more regulations and more laws and more limits on what we can do, more restrictions on what we can think and say and become, and the “Green New Deal” is just the start.

Socialism: An Old Dogma With No New Tricks

David Catron, The American Spectator

Market forces can’t be evaded by socialism any more than the laws of physics can be eluded by a perpetual motion machine. There is no evidence that any attempt to do so has ever succeeded in either case. The belief that it is possible to successfully replace capitalism with socialism requires blind faith that can’t be justified by experience or theory. It is merely leftist dogma, and it has failed to learn any new tricks in the last two centuries. A trip to Venezuela will confirm this. By all means, share your findings when you return… if you live.

It’s Time For Conservatives To Choose: Fight Back Or Surrender

Derek Hunter, Townhall

Conservatives never return the favor of dragging old quotes or actions into the light, they almost uniformly refuse to call for boycotts. They prefer to “take the high road.” What good is the high road if it leads to defeat? Moral victories are just a polite way to justify losing. Liberals collect scalps, conservatives collect moral victories. This isn’t a battle for local dog catcher, it’s a fight for the future of the country; it’s time for the right to fight back the way they’re being attacked.

Trump's Most Daunting Task: Educating on Socialism

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

Our youth has suffered from a form of child abuse by their teachers and the media. They have been told, implicitly and explicitly, from earliest childhood that socialism is the preferable system because of "fairness." The next election is likely to be some form of socialism versus capitalism, no matter who the Democrats nominate. If Bernie Sanders, it will be front and center, but it won't be far away with other candidates. Every election is said to be the most consequential. This one really is. It's about a lot more than the individuals running.

Progressivism and the Myth of Human Progress

Timothy Daughtry, Townhall

There is nothing advanced or progressive about the temptation for people to seek political power to impose their will upon others. The pages of human history are stained with innocent blood as a result, with over 100 million people dying at the hands of their own government in the last century. And there is no way to measure the misery suffered by those who survived but whose rights were trampled by government in other ways. Our Constitution limits governmental power and distributes it broadly to protect the rights of our citizens against power-hungry people.

Facts Don't Favor Socialism

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

As the Democrats careen to the left (and over a cliff), it should not be surprising that their allied "fact-checkers" are running alongside them, trying to "correct" any negative impressions. "Be wary of politicians crying socialism," warned Washington Post "fact-checker" Glenn Kessler recently. Kessler cited President Trump, who said in his speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference, "Socialism is not about the environment. It's not about justice. It is not about virtue. Socialism is about only one thing: It's called power for the ruling class."

Why I'm for Bernie in the Democratic Primaries

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

Capitalism needs a break and our young people, who have been so heavily indoctrinated into socialism given the polls we are now seeing about millennials, need at least a slight chance to learn what capitalism is (before they get out into the real world and have to earn a living). Trump vs. Sanders would be an incredible educational experience. America will get to compare and contrast and Trump has already made it clear that he intends to run against socialism. The election will be about the big issues for once. Good-bye, uni-party.

The relentless Democratic search for the unicorn

Wesley Pruden, Washington Times

Mr. Trump was elected not because he was qualified to be the superintendent of the Sunday school, but because even with a past he was not as sordid as the woman he was running against, who was hardly qualified to critique anybody’s past, having defended her husband’s wicked abuse of other women. But it may not cost him much political skin. The party that tried to foist Hillary Clinton on the republic this time offers a rich buffet of presidential candidates who don't really offer voters much. No wonder the unicorn hides in the woods.

Did Trump Lock-Up 2020 In One Speech?

President Trump correctly identified the issues at bar in 2020 as the American dream versus the socialist nightmare. Democrats are already helping President Trump put their socialism on trial by embracing socialist candidates,  and by ratcheting-up the socialist rhetoric. It is up to us conservatives to make sure Trump obtains the conviction.

Media Ignores Great Economic News… Again

Inflation-adjusted disposable income rose 4.2 percent, last quarter, and America’s working families are seeing a continued gain in their disposable income, and thus a continued improvement in their quality of life. This is not only good news for America’s working families, it is good political news for President Trump, which is probably why it was buried by the establishment news media.

That’s A Hard Pass On Socialism, Millennial Suckers

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

Socialism here in America? No thanks. Not interested. And by “not interested,” I literally mean that I’d fight to the death to prevent you psychos from trashing the Constitution to impose a socialist regime here in America. And I’m not alone. I bet a bunch of you are down for the flag too. So millennial socialist twerps, keep running your vape holes about change and progress and all that stuff, but if you really want a revolution, you better put down your iPhones and learn how to shoot.

Little Climate Change Monsters Turn On Democrats

The problem for Democrats is now obvious: Having created their army of brainwashed little climate change monsters, they cannot move fast enough to satisfy their appetite for bigger government, more regulations and more laws and more limits on what we can do, think, say and become, and the “Green New Deal” is just the start.

Democrat Presidential Candidates To Provide Comic Relief This Week

his week’s Senate debate on the Democrats’ “Green New Deal” is going to be comical, but never forget that behind the zany ideas is the same cold iron hand of Socialist authoritarianism that has killed millions every place and every time it has been tried.

Run Beto, Run

The Democrat presidential primary field is expanding and morphing at a pace rivaling that of the Blob in the eponymous 1958 Steve McQueen sci-fi movie, with Robert Francis "Beto" O'Rourke about to be the latest Democrat to be absorbed into its formless bulk.

Bernie Sanders’ Socialist Platform Raises $6 Million Crushes Other Democrats

Socialist Senator Bernie Sanders raised $6 million in the first 24 hours after he announced his campaign for President. These donors are not attracted by his charismatic good looks – which are totally absent – nor are they attracted by his oratorical skills, again absent, what they are attracted to are his Socialist policies and his record of fighting for them.

A Unicorn in Every Pot

David Catron, The American Spectator

Sadly, the Green New Deal, Medicare for All, free college tuition, and a federal jobs guarantee are only stragglers in the herd of mythical creatures the Democrats plan to round up and feed the voters. They are utterly bereft of genuinely useful policy ideas to offer the nation. So, instead, they will promise a unicorn in every pot. Herbert Hoover didn’t cause the Great Depression, but if any of these people make it to the White House and implement any of their awful ideas, they may well succeed in causing one.

Why Trump's War on Socialism Is More Necessary Than Ever

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

Forget entertainment and the media, as biased as they are, if we let Marxist theory dominate our educational system much longer, we will be a socialist state by fiat.  AOC will be elected president by proclamation as soon as she is of age, if not before.  We will have had a revolution without a shot being fired. By making resistance to socialism a lynch pin of his 2020 campaign, Trump will be helping to right this extremely dangerous situation, giving cover to students being indoctrinated in our classrooms and to their increasingly alarmed parents.

Trump Report Card: State of the Union Address 2019

Our friend David Franke shares President Donald Trump's report card for a class in Political Performance 101—an elective in both the theater/performance art department and the political science department of Franke University. Understood in this way, Prof. Franke gave President Trump a grade of A+.

Good News From Trump Wrecks Democrats

The American workers Donald Trump promised to fight for are the real winners of the Trump economic boom. Good news for Americans is death to the Democrat Party, and that is why in their coverage of President Trump’s State of the Union message most of the establishment media could not get beyond the shenanigans of the white-clad Democratic congresswomen.

Socialism Is The Fyre Festival Of Ideologies, And Stupid Millennials Are Falling For It Too

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

You might imagine that watching Venezuela degenerate into a toilet paper-free nightmare of oppression and zoo animal-devouring would give the millennials pause about the ideology that made one of the richest countries in the world into one of the poorest in the space of a decade. But if you did, then you don’t get millennials. Who needs your history and experience when they have retweets and feelz? If socialism does manage to infect America in spite of our efforts, there is one thing I’ll regret missing out on. That’s seeing the millennials looking surprised at what happens to them next.
