  • Conservative Republicans Must Have a Drastic Change in Strategy To Survive

    Conservatives must also take the political game as seriously as the leftists do. In this country, conservatives still outnumber liberals, but you would never know it by the voting tallies As Special Counsel Robert Mueller racks up the guilty pleas for minor infractions by supporters of President Trump unrelated to Russian Collusion and ignores the crimes committed by members of the FBI, DOJ, and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, it should come as no surprise that Conservatives are playing in the wrong game. Even after Republicans won the White House, Senate and House of Representatives they acted as if...

    Brandon Masin is a 25-year-old student at the University of North Texas at Dallas College of Law. He is the founder of the law school’s chapter of The Federalist Society, the only conservative student organization on campus.On the evening of November 20th, 2018, while at an outing hosted by one of his professors for the holiday, Brandon received an email from the university stating that due to an alleged and unspecified threat he was immediately suspended and would have to meet with the school's CARE team. He emailed several times asking procedural questions about the investigation as it was...
  • Tucker Carlson says Trump is ‘not capable’ and hasn’t kept his promises

    Fox News Channel host Tucker Carlson set straight any misinformation concerning his views on President Trump: “I don’t think he’s capable,” he said during an interview on Tuesday. Urs Gehriger, an editor at “Die Weltwoche,” the country’s leading German-language opinion weekly, noted that Carlson’s new book, “Ship of Fools,” is silent on Trump but comments on his critics. And so, Gehriger jump-started the conversation by asking what Carlson thought of Trump’s first two years in office. Carlson said he cannot stand Trump’s self-aggrandizement and boasting. Then, when asked whether Trump has kept his promises, the usually quick-witted and long-winded Carlson...

    The fate of The Weekly Standard, the conservative magazine that has staked out a position as a publication on the right still critical of President Donald Trump, is uncertain, Editor-in-Chief Stephen Hayes told staff in a series of phone calls Tuesday, according to two people familiar with the matter. The magazine's precarious position comes after its leadership spent months searching for a buyer, the people told CNN. The people explained that The Weekly Standard's leadership had butted heads with MediaDC, the current publisher of the magazine, and that the two parties had agreed to allow Hayes to search for a...

    Do conservatives have more fun? Should liberals start describing themselves as humor-challenged?.. why didn’t the liberals in the Boston experiment like the nonsense humor of “Deep Thoughts” as much as the conservatives did? ... Rod Martin, the author of “The Psychology of Humor,” said the results of the Boston study might reflect another trait that has been shown to correlate with a taste for jokes: cheerfulness.... “Conservatives tend to be happier than liberals in general,” said Dr. Martin, a psychologist at the University of Western Ontario. “A conservative outlook rationalizes social inequality, accepting the world as it is, and making...

    I may be signing my own Twitter death warrant with this opinion piece but so be it if I dare to criticize and accuse the man who has more power to influence American political thought than Vladimir Putin ever could dream of having. That man is Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey. By silencing conservative thought he can control much of America’s political dialogue, with his minions deliberately steering it in a leftist direction reflecting their inner beliefs, while blaming it on inanimate software. Pushed to the wall, they bleat that the algorithm made them do it. As this Congress winds down,...
  • What a lifelong Democrat learned from a year trying to live like a Republican

    Ken Stern did not expect to enjoy pig hunting in Texas. As the former head of NPR, he did not expect to find common ground with the people of evangelical churches or eastern Kentucky coal mines. And he did not expect to renounce his Democratic membership. But after a year immersed in Republican culture, Stern learned life on the other side of the political divide is far from how it's depicted — a problem he pins on a polarized media landscape, and the very institutions he formerly called home.
  • RUSH LIMBAUGH: They’ve Destroyed the Conservative Brand. We’re Problem Solvers, Geno!

    CALLER: Rush, I’m very disappointed in you and in fact, quite honestly, I’m angry with you because of what you told that lady two days ago and what you told the other call today earlier today in the program. You’re advising us, your loyal audience for 30 years, that have stood by you and that have made you the Moses of conservatism. You are now telling us that we should call ourselves “problem solvers” rather than conservatives so that we can try to get the political power that we need. [CUT] That’s wrong! Admit you’re wrong and do it right...

    Rush is rightly disgusted at today's Mueller's news. SO disgusted in fact that after a caller prompted him he agreed that the word "conservative" is so useless and damaged that a "rebranding" might be a good idea. I couldn't agree more.

    It’s true that I prefer the Republican Party platform to the Democratic Party platform, hands down. It’s true that I’m a moral conservative when it comes to social issues like abortion, homosexuality, gender distinctions, and the meaning of marriage. And that means that, demographically, I fit right in with the older, white, male, Republican crowd. But that is absolutely not my place of personal identity. My identity flows from my relationship with the Lord and is fueled by His calling and His Word.Put another way, I do not long to uphold the status quo of America. To the contrary, everything...

    A campaign rally with Vice President Mike Pence in central Ohio on Wednesday included two unlikely voters, farmers Levi Miller and Ben Hostetler, who are part of a determined effort by Trump supporters and the Republican Party to get members of the conservative Amish and Mennonite communities to the polls. Mr. Miller and Mr. Hostetler ordinarily drive horse-drawn buggies, but they got a ride for this event with a volunteer from the group Bikers for Trump, which has been working on outreach to the Amish in Ohio for about two years. “The Amish are doing a lot under the radar,”...
  • Mississippi's senate special election is a chance to seat a real conservative

    So, tell them again, Mitch McConnell and GOP swamp, why should Mississippi settle for a never-Trumper masquerading as a republican when they could send a verified conservative and supporter of Trump's agenda to Washington? The facts about the Mississippi special election to replace Thad Cochran have been completely misrepresented by the GOP “Vote Red” campaign. Making voters believe that the senate race is the usual partisan showdown, the GOP has pressured President Trump to endorse the governor-appointed candidate Cindy Hyde-Smith who is a proven democrat in republican clothing. The MSGOP even went as far as to coerce McDaniel voters wearing...

    So, connedservatives, stop being conned If you’re a conned-servative who gets sand thrown in his eyes, his kneecaps kicked off and slashed with a broken bottle and then still fights the next time by Queensberry rules, this article isn’t for you. But if you’re disturbed by the Left’s behavior these last years and want to know how to handle these people whose “mask has been dropping,” understand this: Behind that mask is the Devil. If you’re not a person of faith, view this as a thought exercise. But it’s one connedservatives—those nice guys who always finish last—had better embrace fast....

    Retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson used to be a rockstar in Baltimore. But, after running as a Republican in the 2016 presidential election and accepting a post in the Trump administration, he has sullied his good name forever, according to a new report from the Associated Press. Carson grew up in poverty, but he didn't let it define or hamper his dreams. He worked hard to eventually become the Director of Pediatric Neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins in Baltimore. In 1987, he gained fame after performing an historic 22-hour surgery to separate conjoined twins. It's all in his autobiography, Gifted Hands....

    Progressive-left will continue to drag you where they have been since Nov. 9, 2016: in deep dark despair, a place they deliberately went into, not realizing they’d never be able to come back out. We’re all in the same boat now. “All” being conservatives, Christians, deplorables—anyone who dares disagree with—let alone stand up to—the propagandists cleared by MSM and social media to wander freely all over the Internet. Capital ‘D’ Ditto for not dozens and hundreds, but THOUSANDS of conservative news sites who remain faithful to “telling it like it is”.

    For the world to get to how it is today, with the nearly complete elimination of tradition in favor of a globohomo world where diddling little children is becoming normalized, conservatives have had to lose every meaningful cultural war in the history of man. When someone declares themselves a conservative, they’re in fact stating that they are a loser, someone who is meant to take the fall when the left comes attacking. Conservatives have lost on every battlefront: free speech, the military, the universities, marriage, nuclear family, child education, the media, the government, Boy Scouts, business, law and justice, Christianity,...

    Fuller House star and former host of The View, Candace Cameron Bure, told Fox News she wants The View to acquire another conservative host. “I really hope that it is a conservative seat because I think it will balance out that table,” she said. “They need more than one conservative so I really hope it’s a conservative.” Bure spoke about Meghan McCain, who is on the panel currently, and stated that McCain should not be the only one there to balance the table. Bure, who is a Republican, has not been fully supportive of President Donald Trump. She commented on...
