Ignore The Never Trump Losers Who Are OK With Liberals Winning

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

Never Trumpers are no threat to the elite because, at their hollow core, they support the existing power structure. That’s why they are so blind to the manifest corruption of the institutions that they are a part of and are therefore invested in. That’s why these saps were so easily suckered by the RUSSIA TREASON COLLUSION!!!! scam. And that’s why Trump and those of us who support him terrify them – because, unlike the Conservative, Inc., cabal, we have nothing to lose if the whole teetering edifice of our crummy ruling class collapses under the sheer weight of its lies and incompetence.

A new folly of identity politics: 'Separate but equal' commencements

Tammy Bruce, Washington Times

Those who laud the separate-but-equal commencement events argue that college students have always associated based on interest and affinities. And that’s true — there are debate clubs, political science societies, drama leagues, language clubs, etc. In some campus housing, you find people choosing floors that also reflect similar interests like language, math, art history, engineering or architecture. The heart of the American experience, relationships, empathy and understanding, and becoming united with people unlike yourself, is the existential threat to the left and to their political narrative, and it is why the left remains obsessed with conditioning people into accepting the dangerous fraud of identity politics.

Liberals Begin to Revolt against ‘Rock Stupid’ Homelessness Policies

John Fund, National Review

Finding the right balance between compassion and personal responsibility in homelessness policy is incredibly difficult. Simply spending money on more apartments for the homeless only attracts more homeless and breeds corruption. Demanding that people get off drugs and alcohol and on to any prescribed medication they have invites howls of outrage and civil-rights lawsuits. That’s why it’s noteworthy that the citizens of liberal Denver finally said “Enough” to liberal plans to broaden the right of homeless people to live on city streets. It’s now time for reformers to realize that the public is yearning for answers and to propose tough-love solutions that address the root cause of the homeless problem, rather than sentimentalize it.

US economy proves it is robust and thriving, liberal 'sugar high' predictions are wrong again

Andy Puzder, Fox News

Liberals have been predicting an impending recession for months. With each successive quarter that their predictions have failed to materialize, they’ve only become more frustrated with the economy’s long-term prospects. This isn’t a “sugar high,” no matter how much liberals wish it were as they nervously look ahead to the 2020 presidential election. This is a robust economy that is thriving on a red meat-and-potatoes pro-growth diet of tax cuts, deregulation, fair trade policies, and a focus on domestic energy. The most recent GDP growth merely confirms what should have been obvious long ago to anyone without a partisan ax to grind: the U.S. economy is finally healthy again. This is a Trump Boom, period.

Poll Underlines Liberal Dominance in TV News

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

The media remain remarkably unwilling to acknowledge that the complaint of leftist bias in the "news" product is a very old complaint that resonated long before Donald Trump came down his escalator to run for president. The subject of biased television news is about as old as ... television news. It's certainly true that even the slightest pretense of fairness has been shredded in the Trump era. Anyone observing the "news" agenda today should probably admit that saying any national media outlet has "no political lean" is a stretch. Letting conservatives make a point apparently ruins everything for the people who self-identify as the "right side of history."

The Admission Scam Is Another Reason To Destroy Academia As We Know It

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

Academia exists to mass produce ignorant future elitists and to provide jobs for liberal indoctrinators fueled by our tax money. The state and private schools both take our dough directly as well as through guaranteed student loans. Student loans are a giant scam, of course. Students get grifted into chaining an anchor around their necks in exchange for credentials most don’t even need. Colleges can raise tuition as high as they like because the government will just back the loans these suckers take out. It’s a great system, if you’re an academic. Not so much if you are a student or a taxpayer.

The Virtuous Can Never Be Guilty

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

The Steeles, Smolletts, and Dees of the world will continue to con their way to fame and riches while damaging the country — until it no longer pays. And it will no longer pay when we have the collective courage to accurately and matter-of-factly label Steele a pathological liar and fraud; and Smollett for what he is, a racist con artist; and Dees for what he has become, a virtue-signaling grifter; and our elite college system for what it has descended to, a non-meritocratic, cattle-branding operation that fast-tracks its chosen herd into green careerist pastures.

CNN Officially Out Of Investigative Journalism

Given CNN's history of biased coverage of President Trump, it seems clear to us that, based on the results of the numerous studies the MRC has conducted on the network, CNN long ago got out of the investigative journalism field, it has just taken Jeff Zucker all this time to admit it.

Did The Establishment Media Have Any Credibility To Lose?

The establishment media has been leaning left since the 1970s. Trump gave everyone permission to acknowledge whose side the media is really on, and those outside the establishment are no longer bashful about saying they do not trust the media to provide accurate facts free from bias in favor of the liberal establishment.

The War on Red Caps Roars On

Deroy Murdock, National Review

Despite the Left’s relentless moans that Trump supporters are hateful bullies, mayhem flows from Left to Right, as Trump haters force Trump fans to pay for their beliefs with physical injuries. And — think of the children! — they typically involve older people brutalizing younger Americans in MAGA hats. Severely neurotic Trump foes want to ban MAGA hats as intimidating and violent, even as Trump foes intimidate and violently attack Trump fans in MAGA hats. The circle of psychological projection is complete.

An Armed Citizenry Is A Free Citizenry, Which Is Why Liberals Want You Disarmed

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

An armed citizenry is a true backstop to tyranny, an obstacle to total control over society by a small elite that seeks unbridled power. Will we ever have to use it? We hope not, but think of it as a fire extinguisher for fascism--better to have it lying around than not to have it when you need it. If the left wants chaos, an attempt to disarm us is the way to get it. We will never back down from our absolute and Creator-given right to defend our lives and freedom because disarmed, we stop being free citizens and become neutered serfs.

College Admissions Scandal Unmasks Hollywood Hypocrisy

Roger L. Simon, Real Clear Politics

Hollywood is rampant with excessive public moral posturing, which disguises often equally excessive private amorality or even immorality. The biggest liberal or progressive stars are frequently the most avaricious and nasty people in their personal lives.  It’s a form of split personality cum self-hypnosis that has been employed successfully by the entertainment industry for some time, but the college admissions scandal is bringing it unpleasantly to the surface, as did the recent #MeToo controversy.

Waging War against the Dead

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

The 21st century is in danger of becoming an era of statue smashing and historical erasure. Not since the iconoclasts of the Byzantine Empire or the epidemic of statue destruction during the French Revolution has the world seen anything like the current war on the past. There have been some unfortunate lessons from such vendettas against the images and names of the past. The past is not a melodrama but more often a tragedy. Destroying history will not make you feel good about the present. Studying and learning from it might.

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.

The Continued Resilience of Quiet America

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

Fifty years later, what are the lessons of the chaotic year 1969 for our similarly schizophrenic age of polarization, civil disunity, and unprecedented wealth and scientific advancement? America is such a huge and diverse country, and so abundantly endowed with natural and human resources, that it is capable of achieving unprecedented scientific, economic, and technological breakthroughs even as its social fabric is tearing apart. Or, put another way, while the media highlights crime, protests, grievances, and civil disorder, a majority of Americans still go to work unbothered each day.

The Left’s Racist Insanity

We see in the debate over whether Will Smith is dark enough to play Richard Williams that the Left’s long-term effort to divide America along racial and ethnic lines is rapidly reaching its logical conclusion in which “colorism” is now to be added to race and ethnicity to become a dividing determinant.

Targeting young hearts, minds with leftist children's books

Charles Hurt, Washington Times

Welcome to the newest frontier of political indoctrination: Children’s books. Bookstores these days are stacked with hyperpartisan propaganda aimed at stealing the minds of our youngest, though not necessarily our most impressionable. Award for “most impressionable” apparently goes to anybody running for the Democratic presidential nomination and usually pertains to whatever was the latest goofball idea to tumble out of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s mouth. All the lefties are peddling political playbooks to children.

Changing Reality with Words

Victor Davis Hanson, Washington Times

The reinvention of vocabulary can often be more effective than any social protest movement. Malarial swamps can become healthy “wetlands.” Fetid “dumps” are often rebranded as green “landfills.” A liberal Democrat was once someone seen as a free thinker. But “progressive” implies that one is more action-orientated and has an evolutionary agenda, not just a methodology. Beware of euphemisms. Radical changes in vocabulary are usually admissions that reality is unwelcome or indefensible.

The Strange Paradoxes of Our Age

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

The common thread to the paradoxes that we encounter daily is the inconsistency of progressivism itself — or rather its ad hoc adoption of any means necessary to be justified by an anointed end, which is the quest for power and control. Progressivism is not an empirical or coherent creed, but contrary both to human nature and the record of history — in its arrogance that an elite, if only provided with enough money, power, and good intentions, can create heaven on earth rather than hell.

What Will It Take To Make You Understand And Accept That They Hate You?

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

It’s not about race or gender or orientation, but about power – they want to take yours, to strip you of your sovereignty and make you kneel. Their SJW posturing is all a lie and a scam. They don’t care about ending racism, sexism, homophobia, or any of the myriad other -isms and -phobias they blather about. Those poses are just weapons to be used to capture what they really want – total power over you. They seek to shame you into submission, and if that won’t work, then they’ll do whatever it takes.
