Today – Leftists Have Georgia on Their Minds

All eyes, politically speaking, will be on a certain special Congressional election today.

It’s Georgia’s Sixth Congressional district – the one vacated by Tom Price when he stepped down to become President Trump’s Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary.

This election would not otherwise be of importance or the slightest bit intriguing, but this is not just any election. Oh, it won’t change the make-up of the House, or unseat the Republicans. Nothing that dramatic – at least not to normal people.

This election is being overly hyped because this is a red district in a red State, which may actually end up being won by a Democrat. And this, as is being broadcast by virtually all left wing media sources, is to be proof of the American voter’s absolute repudiation of Trump.

That’s the bottom line – that’s what it’s all about, and only that.

The left is salivating over the potential victory, much like they were just before Hillary Clinton flamed out and crashed in a fiery ball of death.

So what’s the big deal anyway? What chance does a liberal Democrat (as if there is any other type of Democrat anymore) have in winning a reliable Republican district?

Normally none, but the candidate, Jon Ossoff, is said to have a good shot at taking the seat – because – you know – everyone now hates Trump. read more

Don’t Plan for the Future – We Only Have 10 Years Left

In the latest in radical climate doomsaying, a new report warns that fossil fuel consumption will need to be reduced “below a quarter of primary energy supply by 2100” to avoid possibly disastrous effects on global temperatures.

In their report, titled “Pathways for balancing CO2 emissions and sinks,” a team of eight scientists warns that “anthropogenic emissions need to peak within the next 10 years, to maintain realistic pathways to meeting the COP21 emissions and warming targets.”

The statement was immediately repackaged by environmentalists to read: “Scientists say we have ten years to save the earth.”

As is always the case in studies of this sort, the scientists juggle dozens of variables, none of which is entirely predictable and which taken together tell us virtually nothing about the future of the environment. read more

The Website, The Nation, has a Message for the Left

Some on the left are concerned about the praise being heaped on President Trump over his single bombing campaign in Syria. No, it’s not the praise from the right, but coming from liberals who, like democrat politicians, normally have nothing constructive to say regarding Trump.

Now ultra-leftist sites like The Nation.com are worried about this new found respect of Trump, even if it is temporary, as demonstrated by an article entitled, “Too Many of Trump’s Liberal Critics Are Praising His Strike on Syria.”

It seems that The Nation feels compelled to remind fellow travelers that Trump is the enemy and you never say anything good about the enemy.

They insist that if one from the left shows favor toward Trump on this single action, they must therefore “account for what comes next.” read more

Podcast – Harvard University may be the Most Leftist College in America

Upon returning from a college event with my son and seeing some of the leftist clubs represented there, I decided to dedicate a podcast to some of these radical ideals.

It took me no more than 10 minutes on a single website, The College Fix, to find four separate articles, involving only Harvard – demonstrating what a leftist swamp it has come to be.

What I discovered is what I had already assumed – that if one is a conservative, you best not set foot on the campus of Harvard University. read more

WND Exclusive – Now We Need a College Degree to Parent?

Last week the Washington Post reported that the District of Columbia will be the first in the nation “to require child care workers to get college degrees.”

Yes, you read that correctly. All child care workers in Washington, D.C., must earn a “bachelor’s degree in early-childhood education” in order to take care of your diaper-donned infants.

“The new regulations put the District at the forefront of a national effort to improve the quality of care and education for the youngest learners. City officials want to address an academic achievement gap between children from poor and middle-class families that research shows is already evident by the age of 18 months,” writes the Post. read more

Protests Won’t Stop Trump – Why Not a Magic Spell

Any time a Republican is elected president, there are bound to be protests by the left. George W. Bush had his share of selected, not elected, truther, anti-war nimrods and “Bush Lied – People Died” protests.

But leftist protesting has been more of a cottage industry until the election of Donald Trump. I don’t know what the employment rate for professional protesters was before Trump, but it has to have reached full employment by now.

One of Trump’s initiatives is to end all funded for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. Perhaps if they change their name to the Corporation for Public Protesting, they’ll be able to make up for the dearth of government funds by tapping one of George Soros’ many shell organizations.

Seriously – maybe I’m just more plugged in than ever before, but there appears to be enough anti-Trump protests groups to fill a set of Encyclopedias. For you younger readers – an Encyclopedia is a set of books with paper pages bound together, representing a cumulative base of knowledge.

There is even a book, recently published, entitled, “THIS IS AN UPRISING,” a “Key Guide for the Movement to Stop Trump!” read more

“We Are Not Afraid” Hashtag Campaign is a Load of Crap

In the aftermath of the Wednesday terrorist attack in London, many took to Twitter with another “feel-good” hashtag campaign. This time the meme is #WEARENOTAFRAID.

It is another lame attempt by liberals of what Michelle Malkin calls “virtue signaling.” She explains  that hastag campaigns are

Virtue Signaling

“easy advertisements and maudlin displays of one’s resolute opposition to an unidentified something that must be stopped somehow by unspoken means.” It is also an effort for those with no identity of their own to identify with and involve themselves in the crisis without ever having to actually do anything.

Yet unlike previous virtue signaling campaigns like those which claim “solidarity,” the “We Are Not Afraid” campaign is particularly silly and oh-so wrong.

You see, they are afraid – afraid to offend.

The left twists themselves up like pretzels in an effort not to offend. And this is another incident of what their leftist borderless virtue has wrought. Because of their fear of offending all the wrong people, Europe is rapidly losing its identity and culture – voluntarily giving way to savages whose only goal is to conquer, convert and subjugate them. And those who are actually “Not Afraid,” will be murdered. read more

WND Weekly Exclusive – Have We Lost Kooky California for Good?

It looks like the agents of the department of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) are finally being allowed to the job they were hired to do – unless they were hired during Obama’s reign. Then, their job description was to look the other way, catch and release and taxi illegals to safe spaces throughout the country.

We on the right are thrilled to hear this news. However, for those on left – not so much.

Sob stories abound across the Internet at virtually every leftist site. Stories of mothers deported, leaving their children behind. Whole families of illegals, braving the snow and bitter cold, to make the trek into the loving arms of Canada. Illegals in Georgia who are voluntarily opting out of the food stamp program, so as not to be caught by Trump and his jackbooted ICE brigade. read more

I don’t think anyone would ever mistake me for a leftist – not even being left leaning. There’s not much about them that makes any sense and the decisions they make, the opinions they have, tend to be highly contradictory at times.

Their views on children, for example. They teach children about separation of Church and State, but dress them up in Hijabs, conduct mock prayers to Allah and teach them the Five Pillars of Islam.

They teach children about the dangers of predatory men in the schoolyard, the playground, on the streets and online. Yet they insist that everyone should be able to use the same bathroom.

The left insists on coddling children – protecting them from every potentially dangerous or controversial situation (when it suits their political agenda). They claim that we must shield them from disappointment and anything which can damage a young student’s self-esteem or hurt their little feelings. read more

The Lefts Special Ability to See Racism

I find it fascinating that the only culture not worth preserving is Western culture, and particularly American culture.

No matter how long I lived in – pick a country – say – Mexico, I would never be afforded the title of hyphenated countryman. Regardless of my insistence, I would never be considered American-Mexican, or American Hispanic. No one would come to my aid and insist that my American heritage must be preserved – that it would add to or somehow strengthen Mexican culture. There would be no protests, no marches, no picket signs, no pressing two for English. And those in Mexico would have little patience with me flying the American flag. They would expect me to assimilate, and rightly so.

Yet, as we are well aware, there is no such expectation in America. Quite the opposite. We are the ones who are expected to accept and celebrate everyone else’s culture but our own, allowing them to live as they would like, as permanent house guests. This, we are told, is multiculturalism and is indeed to be celebrated as somehow strengthening our nation.

Because of this we are slowly losing our identity, our culture – what it means to be American.

Recently, Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, landed himself in hot water with the liberal elite for stating this very thing. He was interviewed  by the poster-boy of leftist elitism, CNN’s Chris Cuomo. Cuomo immediately began attacking King regarding a tweet by the Republican in support of a comment made by Dutch politician Geert Wilders. read more
