  • Political Correctness, Fake News and the NFL Viewing Decline.

    Maybe you don't give a damn about football, but it's presenting a fascinating look at the utter destructive power of political correctness and fake news. There's likely some data that conservative apologists might find useful. Looks like NFL viewership declined another 12% this year. That's on top of the 9-10% decline last year. 22% in two years... of a viewing audience of half of America! This would seem to be the most massive product boycott in history. Desperate to lie to advertisers AND discourage boycotters, the media has famously found other explanations. The first explanation was the ratings collapse was...

    President Trump is very much at the top of his game. He took The Swamp to the cleaners on immigration with swift and stunning aplomb. Two days ago, the President announced that he would sign any immigration reform bill that The Swamp could put together. His supporters were utterly despondent, convinced that once again they had been been betrayed. Talk-show hosts and pro-Trump commentators went on a day-long rampage, heaping scorn on the President who ran and won on his hard-nosed stance against illegal immigration. Instead, President Trump lured the Swamp into a humiliating, bipartisan trap. Assuming the president at...

  • Conservative challengers to Cantorize pro-amnesty GOPe RINO traitor Roger Wicker in MS primary?

    01/11/2018 12:51:41 PM PST · by Javeth · 4 replies
    Does anyone in or nearby Mississippi know if a conservative challenger is rising to kick out that pro-amnesty RINO scum Roger Wicker for the 2018 Senate race? If not, I'll make the case here on why it's so urgent to Cantorize this backstabbing quisling sellout to the conservative cause and American people. As reminder, Wicker was one of the GOPe RINO traitors who voted for that treasonous 2013 Obama comprehensive immigration reform bill that would have amnestied 20 million illegals and flooded the USA with job-killing h1b visas and Muslim refugees. I just got back from a long run of...

    I am in awe of the patients and the self-restraint that President Trump has shown in the past year. Just think about it. 10 days after the election, President Trump was alerted that he had been wiretapped by the FBI and his political enemies. Most of our reactions would be to scream and make public accusations immediately. Instead, Trump remained silent for nearly 5 months. Then finally, he tweeted that he just discovered about it. Trump's accusation was immediately responded with ridicule. Leftists and those in the media called him a conspiracy nut. Yet, remained silent. Trump said nothing as...

    A VERY STABLE GENIUS President Trump is quick to tout his intelligence, his wealth, and his accomplishments. Today, he called himself a "very stable genius." At least half of America thinks he's an obnoxious blowhard, even crazy. I think there is a method to his madness. Millions of American kids have been brainwashed by the public education system and modern culture to believe that their intelligence and accomplishments, like those of their parents, are a function of "privilege." Something to be ashamed of. Diligence and motivation have nothing at all to do with it. Students are now being tested across...

    I did breakfast early this morning at McDonalds near a large ATLANTA institution construction site with hundreds of workers on a cold Saturday morning. McDonalds was crowded with them. The women behind the counter were obviously family of some of the construction workers, all macho. All construction workers were Hispanic. Almost all were Mexican. Many were obviously recent immigrants. A significant number were teenagers. Some appeared to be as young as 14. The teenagers might qualify as Dreamers. (I have experience since 1962 developing this skill of recognizing them. Were these young teenagers here on Saturday morning on a take...

    01/02/2018 1:19:18 PM PST · by cotton1706 · 37 replies
    Make no mistake. Mitt Romney, should he be elected to the Senate, will be a liberal republican. He will be a John McCain, an Arlen Specter, a Jim Jeffords, a Susan Collins. The Establishment's dream! A liberal republican in what would otherwise be a hard-right conservative seat...just like John Mccain.

    It was apparently the Holy Grail of the left’s dream narrative , a white right wing terrorist with hordes of guns stopped in the nick of time from committing a mosque massacre by a bold black Democrat heroine! The way the facts seemed to fit the leftist template was so compelling that any Democrat party apparatchik would have jumped on the chance . Hard core Democrat/Socialist Kamela Harris was no exception. A fellow calls a mosque and makes threats. A mosque member following up on some anti-Islamic Facebook posts calls the Facebook man and thinks the voice is similar to the...

    Breaking Israel News ^ | 12/21/17 | By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz
    A scene straight from the Temple of Solomon was recreated on Tuesday evening when Kohanim lit the menorah, but even more wondrous than this sight was the fragrance that accompanied the event: for the first time in 2,000 years, incense was burned in the Biblically prescribed manner. The Temple reenactment took place in the Gan Tekuma park adjacent to the Jewish Quarter inside of Jerusalem’s old city walls at 5:00 PM, just after sunset. The Kohanim (Jewish men of priestly descent) were dressed in priestly garments as described in the Bible.

  • A Christmas Tale (Vanity)

    A Merry Christmas to all! Last year I came very close to death. Upon my recovery I resolved to get off my duff and finish writing the Christmas novel that I'd begun some nine years ago, lest something should happen to me and it remain unfinished. A Fantasía for Two Lutes is a Christmas story in the Dickensian mold, set in modern times, about a man consumed by guilt and seeking atonement for a crime he did not commit. It is a conservative book, one that I was determined to write without sex scenes and vulgarity; a book that can...

    The Today Show - NBC | 12/15/2017 | Self
    I just wanted to give a strong bit of praise for what I just saw on the Today Show - Kathy Lee Gifford singing a bold declaration of the Gospel with her song Jesus Is His Name. Tears to my eyes as she sung about Christ' birth and being Light in the darkness. The chorus boldly declaring the name of Jesus. I hate all things NBC stands for and gets my blood boiling over the years with all the lies they spew. I'm thankful God has kept Kathy Lee there as a consistent witness for Christ. I cringe when the...
  • Stung by 'raw politics,' Roe assesses VA choice, caregiver plans

    Sierra Vista Herald ^ | Tom Philpott
    Rep. Phil Roe, R-Tenn., chairman of the House Veterans Affairs Committee, expected on Tuesday that every committee member, Democrat and Republican, would vote for the VA Care in the Community Act (HR 4242), his comprehensive plan developed over months to reform the flawed Veterans Choice program. Roe therefore said he was surprised and disappointed when all nine Democrats at the bill’s markup hearing opposed the legislation they helped to shape and for which they were original co-sponsors. In a phone interview, Roe blamed the split vote on “pure, blatant, raw politics based on this tax bill.” The tax bill in...

    As 2017 draws to a close, I am moved to summarize and comment on President Trump's first year in office. His election was nothing short of an historic phenomenon and he has exceeded my wildest expectations. There are articles out there that list his top 81 accomplishments, but they include things like learning to play the accordion and walking on water. I'll stick to my short list. 1- my favorite. Withdrawing from the Paris Climate Accords. Climate change is a corrupt, money-making hoax. Not that the climate doesn't change; it's been changing since the Big Bang, sometimes radically. For ninety-nine...
