    Washington Free Beacon ^ | March 26, 2017 | Brent Scher
    Democrats in Montana are employing a "raunchy" sketch cabaret show to raise money for Rob Quist, the party's banjo-playing nominee in the special election to fill the congressional seat vacated by Ryan Zinke. ... The show, put on by Viscosity Theatre, has earned attention for its "silly, ridiculous and raunchy" skits, such as its trademark "Proud to be a Homosexual" song, which is performed as a parody of "Proud to be an American." ... Quist got in hot water this week after it was reported by the Associated Press that he had been evading paying taxes for nearly a decade....

    Days after the House GOP health bill collapsed due to a lack of support from Republicans, White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus brought up the idea of working with Democrats multiple times, leaving little doubt that the White House intended to send a message to the hard-line Republican flank.

    (Angry Patriot) – America is finally starting to fight back against the Muslim invasion, even if it is only one state at a time.Montana is spearheading legislation to keep Sharia Law from being implemented within its borders, this time FOR GOOD. Senate Bill 97, which was proposed by Sen. Keith Regier, prohibits state courts from using foreign laws, just advanced in the House with a 56-44 vote. (via Billings Gazette).It is truly astonishing how the Democrats have such little respect for our founding fathers, that they were able to muster up 44 votes to ensure the savage ideals of Sharia...

    A city councilwoman is asking homeowners in an Oklahoma college town to rename a street honoring a prominent former university professor and Ku Klux Klan member. Norman Councilwoman Breea Clark has posted an online petition asking residents to help change the name of DeBarr Avenue. If at least three-fourths of Norman homeowners agree, the city — home to the University of Oklahoma — would be among several cities nationwide renaming monuments and streets named after prominent KKK members. […] The block-long street honors Edwin DeBarr, one of the university’s first professors and founder of its chemistry department. DeBarr became a...

    A civil war has begun. This civil war is very different than the last one. There are no cannons or cavalry charges. The left doesn’t want to secede. It wants to rule. Political conflicts become civil wars when one side refuses to accept the existing authority. The left has rejected all forms of authority that it doesn’t control. The left has rejected the outcome of the last two presidential elections won by Republicans. It has rejected the judicial authority of the Supreme Court when it decisions don’t accord with its agenda. It rejects the legislative authority of Congress when it...

    Fresh off a defeat on U.S. healthcare legislation, the White House warned rebellious conservative lawmakers that they should get behind President Donald Trump's agenda or he may bypass them on future legislative fights, including tax reform. The threat by White House chief of staff Reince Priebus to build a broad coalition on tax reform that could include moderate Democrats came as the Republican head of the tax-writing committee in the House of Representatives said he hoped to move a tax bill through his panel this spring. House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Kevin Brady said his committee had been working...

    Democrats need to prepare for an ongoing fight against Republicans at all levels of government, not just the White House, their newly appointed deputy national chairman said on Saturday. “We can’t just say it’s all about Trump,” Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn., said at the New Hampshire Democratic Party’s annual meeting. Ellison, who lost his bid for chairman of the Democratic National Committee to former Labor Secretary Tom Perez, said the party had lost focus on state legislatures and governorships. Democrats, he said, need a cohesive national message that can inspire ordinary Americans. “We’ve got to have a higher vision than...

    (TWEETS-AT-LINK) There is nothing surprising about feminist writer Lara Witt’s declaration: “Also white people are evil. Whiteness is evil.” Democrats hate white people. Everybody knows this by now. The #BlackLivesMatter movement was funded by Democrat donors to incite hatred against white people and law enforcement officers, as a way to motivate black voters to turn out for Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election. The feminist movement is also now an anti-white movement. The end of the Obama era, and the defeat of Hillary Clinton — in an election where exit polls showed 53% of white women voted for Donald Trump...

    TEL AVIV — Eastern European leaders have “drawn inspiration” from conservative U.S. media outlets, especially Breitbart News, to crack down on groups financed by billionaire George Soros that are allegedly attempting to meddle in domestic politics, Reuters reported. The news agency reported on Thursday: The campaign against Soros in countries formerly dominated by Moscow appears to follow a template set by Russian President Vladimir Putin, whose own crackdown on foreign-funded charities drove Soros’s foundation out of Russia two years ago. And now, with President Donald Trump in the White House, anti-Soros campaigners in Eastern Europe say they have also drawn...

    During the Senate confirmation hearings for Neil Gorsuch, several democrats suggested that Trump’s nominee was unfit to serve because he believes in the Constitution. Seeing as how the job of Supreme Court Justice is to determine the Constitutionality of things, this seems like a pretty bizarre argument, but democrats aren’t known for being rational. Speaking of which, California democrat Kamala Harris says she won’t be voting to confirm Gorsuch because he bases his decisions on the law instead of feelings. Harris tweeted out this stunning statement today: Judge Gorsuch has consistently valued legalisms over real lives. I won't support his...

    It’s fine for Democrats to be upset that Donald Trump schlonged Hillary Clinton, but the reality is that they spent the entirety of the Obama years getting their brains beaten in. When Obama first took office, they held the House and 60 seats in the Senate and controlled the majority of governorships and state legislatures. Now, the GOP has a large majority in the House, 52 seats in the Senate, and the majority of state legislatures and governorships.Democrats went from thinking they were on the verge of a permanent political ascendancy to the worst political bloodbath in American history.

    It's a given that Newton liberals have little patience for anyone or anything Republican. If candidates are Republican, they must be stopped. If policies are Republican, they must be stopped. If their neighbor, colleague or parents of their kids' friends are Republican, they must be stopped from entering their liberal safe space. They'll sometimes tolerate Republican politicians if they at least appear to bend over backwards to accommodate Democrats. Charlie Baker can be tolerated, for now, and for as long as the Boston Globe approves of him. But their tolerance will stop at his re-election bid next year when they'll...

    In an attempt to disqualify prospective Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif), the ranking Democrat on the Judiciary Committee, anointed 1973's Supreme Court decision on Roe vs. Wade a "super precedent" that ought to be "immune from being overturned." The Senator rejected the possibility that killing a person without a previous finding of guilt by a jury might be contradictory to the Constitution's Fifth Amendment. "I am dismayed by Judge Gorsuch's view that the intentional taking of a human life by private persons is always wrong," Feinstein lamented. "Surely, he must be aware that there are instances...

It stands for the "Making Access Records Available to Lead American Government Openness Act."

In many ways, the deterioration of these cities is a microcosm of what’s gone wrong with our nation. As the 1970s drew to a close, I decided to move to New Orleans. Media at that time...

    Democrats in Congress are digging themselves a ditch that keeps getting deeper. There’s no good fight to be had on Judge Neil Gorsuch, they’re getting steamrolled on repealing and replacing Obamacare, and their base has lurched to the far left, fully outside their grasp. The result? An out-of-touch leadership that can’t stop babbling. And for all the Trump administration’s miscues, Democrats haven’t laid a glove on the president. They couldn’t appear any weaker. Democrats are clearly lost, with no sense of direction. Their efforts to oppose the GOP agenda have failed, and their base knows it. Writing in the Hill...

    Democrats may be ready to throw in the towel in opposing the nomination of Neil Gorsuch to be associate justice of the Supreme Court.  According to Politico, several sources are reporting that a group of Democrat senators may be willing to allow the Gorsuch confirmation to go through on the Senate floor in exchange for a pledge from Republicans not to get rid of the filibuster.  Their thinking is that if President Trump has another opportunity to name a Supreme Court justice, they want the option of blocking any nominee. Another vacancy would be far more consequential, as it...

It may not have been intentional, but the Vermont Democrat’s testimony actually reinforced a pro-life point about how abortion often is used to exploit women. Leahy brought up a personal experience he had before Roe v. Wade with an abortionist who botched a young woman’s abortion and nearly killed her, along with her unborn child. That abortionist, he said, was Nazi-trained. The Washington Examiner reports: He discussed a case in which he, as a state’s attorney in...

They are still sore over what the New York Times editorial board claimed was the “Senate Republicans’ outrageous and unprecedented blockade of Merrick Garland” last year. Vengefully seeking to delegitimize Judge Gorsuch’s nomination, the Senate Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee are using much of their time trying to trip up Judge Gorsuch with “gotchas,” as well as caricaturing the man and his record. In the process, the Democrats appear petty and partisan, while Judge Gorsuch is acquitting himself with eloquence,...

    My latest Counter Propa article addresses the vapid groupthink that cost Democrats the election and catapulted Donald Trump into the presidency. Focus only on Trump, they say. Trump’s victory is an anomaly and he’ll be impeached soon, believe smart Democratic strategists. Repeat the same Democratic playbook of circling the wagons and ignoring blatant hypocrisy, while addressing only Trump’s flaws. This way Democrats will win, even though they lost miserably in 2016 utilizing the same failed strategies. Trump’s executive orders should be the only focus, even after Democrats literally elevated Trump into the White House. Keith Olbermann just blamed Jill Stein...
  • Democrats still haven’t faced their God problem

    PHILADELPHIA — The Democratic Party has a God problem. And over the last couple of decades, as its base became more educated, less religious and more urban, this problem has only grown. Some of this has to do with lower church attendance in cities versus rural areas, and the Democratic Party’s increasing reliance on urban voters. Some of it is the divisiveness of social or cultural issues like abortion and gay marriage. And the divide has seemingly sapped Democrats’ ability to communicate to religious Americans. Especially if those people of faith are white, according to Brad Chism, a longtime and...

    There may be no one with whom partisans on both sides of the political divide have a more conflicted relationship with than FBI Director James Comey. During the 2016 election cycle, he served for partisan liberals and conservatives as, at varying points, both savior and antagonist. Observers suffered whiplash watching as the FBI director evolved from upstanding and forthright public servant to political hack seemingly overnight. Today, while few will permit themselves to say it aloud, Democrats depended on Comey to corroborate their nagging suspicion that either Donald Trump or his associates collaborated with Russian officials. It was, thus, more...
  • Dems Beware: Sanders Movement Turns to Midterms (wingnuts may 'primary' more moderates)

    With Democrats facing tough prospects in the midterm elections, will they also have to worry about primary challenges from their left flank? The path of Sanders' former staffers reflects the split in his movement, and the some are already galvanizing for the 2018 elections — and setting their sights on their own. The more radical strain, which led hundreds of Sanders delegates to walk out of the Democratic National Convention in protest last summer, is still present on the left and emboldened by the loss of Hillary Clinton and their belief that "Bernie would have won." A handful of groups...

    New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman has reportedly hired a prosecutor to examine the activities of the Trump administration. Schneiderman has tapped public-corruption expert Howard McMaster from the office of former Manhattan U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara, The Wall Street Journal reported. Bharara was fired by Trump last week even though he was in the middle of a number of investigations, including one allegedly involving stock trades by Trump’s Health And Human Services Secretary Tom Price. Schneiderman spokesman Eric Soufer confirmed McMaster’s hiring, and told the Journal that McMaster will work on a range of “civil and criminal investigations ... including...
  • Democrat Slams Neil Gorsuch: “He Believes the Intentional Taking of Human Life is Always Wrong”

    During the hearing today in the Senate Judiciary Committee over Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch, pro-abortion Democrat Dianne Feinstein slammed the potential High Court pick. ADVERTISEMENT ADVERTISEMENT Feinstein drew on the issue of abortion for her criticism — saying that she probably will oppose Gorsuch because he believes “the intentional taking of a human life by private persons is always wrong.”“President Trump repeatedly promised that his judicial nominees would be pro-life, and automatically overturn Roe v. Wade,” she said. “Judge Gorsuch has not had occasion to rule directly on a case involving Roe. However, his writings do raise questions. Specifically,...

    A state lawmaker from Manhattan wants to make it costly for New Yorkers not to vote. Assemblywoman Deborah Glick, a Democrat, introduced legislation this week that would establish “compulsory voting” in the state and punish those who don’t vote with a $10 fine. “Mandatory voting would drastically increase civic participation and transform the political arena by making politicians more reflective of the constituents that elected them,” Glick wrote in a memo submitted with the bill. Under Glick’s bill, any eligible voter who fails to vote would be hit with the $10 fine unless they have a “valid excuse” why they...

    President Trump said in an interview broadcast Saturday night that Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) launching a presidential bid against him would be "a dream come true." “I think she’d lose so badly," Trump said during an interview on Fox News' "Watters' World." Trump claimed Warren, a top surrogate for 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, “was getting up with that craziness and that anger” in speeches on the campaign trail....

    New York State Assemblyman David Weprin (D-Hollis) State Sen. Tony Avella (D-Queens) have introduced legislation that would empower the state government to order the erasure of Internet content that is "inaccurate, irrelevant, inadequate, or excessive." "The way it is now is that any government official can be accused of corruption by anyone who has access to the Internet," Weprin complained. "Once the accusation is posted it essentially lives forever on the web. This can unfairly taint a person's reputation. Our bill says that unless an official government investigation and prosecution is undertaken the accusatory content can be ordered removed under...

    Navy Secretary Ray Mabus has raised a few eyebrows with some of the names he has picked for naval ships. Why, critics questioned, would he name a ship in honor of the late gay rights leader Harvey Milk or after former U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords when there are plenty of military heroes to choose from?
