Why do we even bother?

Why do we even bother?

A couple of days ago, Ben Domenech, writing in The Transom, asked a question that many of us have been asking (at least) since the first of the year: Why ...

“Cuckservative” is a Racist Slur and an Attack on Evangelical Christians

Despite the white washing by (pun intended), the phrase “cuckservative” is a racist slur. It is used by racists in support of a racialist agenda. The people who use it are not opposed to illegal immigration, but are opposed to immigration in general. They are opposed to evangelical Christians who support interracial adoption. They are opposed to anyone who does not think in terms | Read More »

Mitch McConnell’s Yips

Y’all need to read this. What you’re hearing all around Capitol Hill over the past few days is the murmur of staffers saying nervously what their bosses can’t: Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) 61% has the yips. Say what you will about McConnell’s ideological grounding, or lack thereof – there was a time when the total leadership failure of the past week would | Read More »

Newsflash: Republican Senators Love Cronyism

With the Republican takeover of Congress earlier this year, conservatives hoped we’d see an end to cronyism. We hoped in vain. It turns out Washington has proceeded as normal, carrying on with its usual tricks. The GOP-controlled Senate is working hard to revive the Export-Import Bank.

The Senate is going to vote on a “right wing crazy deal” (as Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) 8% calls it) before the August recess.  Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) 87% supplied the bluster, but Sen. Joni Ernst (R-IA) 67% along with a core group of senators pushed through a deal that will allow a floor vote on | Read More »

Planned Parenthood attacks

“Deny everything. Admit nothing. Blame others. Make counter-accusations.” That, in a nutshell, is the Planned Parenthood strategy for surviving the revelations that far from being a non-profit they are a rapacious and conscienceless entity that would have shamed the Burkers of Regency London. Now that a politically connected — by ‘politically connected’ I mean Democrat –crisis communications firms is on board we are seeing an | Read More »

Planned Parenthood Is Our Auschwitz

The third undercover video exposing Planned Parenthood from the Center for Medical Progress is out. By now, the takeaway from this media is clear: this is our Auschwitz. Some might recoil at this statement. Wait a minute, they’re thinking, cool your jets. Auschwitz was a concentration camp. That’s not Planned Parenthood. In the simplest terms, no, Planned Parenthood is not a concentration camp. It is | Read More »

So, @PPFA hired a PR team to suppress the videos

This is according to POLITICO: Planned Parenthood has hired high-profile Washington public relations firm SKDKnickerbocker as it scrambles to deal with the ongoing scandal and release of a third undercover video Tuesday showing a clinic’s staff handling fetal tissue after an abortion. The additional PR firepower reflects the growing pressure on the women’s health organization amid building GOP calls to cut its $540 million in | Read More »

I dunno, folks. What *do* you call a socialist who ISN’T an internationalist?

Look, Marxism was all about internationalizing the socialist movement: “Workers of the world, unite!” “…I don’t think so. Bernie don’t play that.”
