Cusack, Sanders and their Common Dream

Scroll Down for Audio Version

I found a new website the other day. Okay, more like I stumbled over it. It’s called Common Dreams.

I can’t remember how I found it, but it is quite revealing of the minds of the ultra-progressive left. And when I say left, I mean like MoveOn.org and Media Matters left. This site makes CNN look middle-of-the-road. Okay – not quite, but pretty close.

Okay, now I remember how I found it. I was looking for some information about a speech that actor John Cusack gave at a Bernie Sanders rally over the weekend in New Hampshire.

A Common Dreams staff writer wrote a glowing account of the gathering and Cusack’s speech. The article is entitled, “Bernie Sanders Has Been Getting It Right for 40 Years. Now, Says His Movement: ‘We Are Going to Win’ – “We’ve never ever in our lifetimes had a true champion of social, economic, and climate justice this close to the White House.”

It was riveting. And by riveting, I mean utterly laughable, knowing what we know of Bernie’s background and true beliefs. read more

WND Exclusive – Gulags for Deplorables: Now They’ve Actually Said It

from Brent for World Net Daily:

We conservatives have been warning of the rise of the radical left for some time – the rise of hard-line leftism / fascism / communism. Take your pick, because fundamentally, they are the same.

And for those warnings, we’ve been derided as right-wing loons and sky-is-falling paranoids. This could never happen in America, they say. Americans may joke about such things, but when push comes to shove, no one will ever advocate for communist-style gulags and reeducation camps.

Still, with history on our side, we soldier on, ever wary of the signs that may point to this rising.

Well, evidently, the time is now. read more

Is “The Purge” coming to a City Near You?

Many of us are at least familiar with the movie(s) about “The Purge.” The premise of these disgusting horror films is that, for a period of time, all crime is legal – no holds barred – no restrictions at all. Everything and everyone is fair game, from petty theft to murder and everything in between.

Personally I think it takes a rather sick mind to imagine such a thing, and an even more disturbed individual(s) to make it into a movie. And it doesn’t say much of those who spend money to view it (them). But that’s a discussion for another day.

This is about the coming real-life “Purge.” Cities like New York, who recently enacted “no bail” laws, have seen a drastic increase in crimes and multiple repeat offenders.

And instead of recoiling at the prospect, other cities and States are pondering following suit.

It’s why we conservatives often speak of slippery slopes – because this is the way it starts.

New York’s crime laws imploding: 7 insane prison release stories

Weak-on-crime laws and policies are imploding everywhere they are enacted. New York is now the poster child of jailbreak insanity. Yet Republicans nationwide remain surprisingly muted in their criticism. Why? Because so many of them support the underlying premise behind de-incarceration radicalism. read more

Well Democrats – You Reap What You Sow

This is what you get when you all pushed your party further and further left – blowing past liberalism and progressivism to socialism/communism. What did you think was going to happen as you promoted and gave a stage to a 29 year old Bernie Sanders.

The democrat party aligned itself with radical academia and arrogantly thought it could control whatever progeny sprung forth. And now you have to live with the result of their handiwork.

Ocasio-Cortez is just doing exactly what she was taught to do. Use other people’s money to further her own ends and bury anyone who stands in her way.

Your Frankenstein monster lives and she’s coming to your district to incite mayhem and destruction.

And it couldn’t happen to a more deserving bunch.

Dems Whine about Facebook?

Well this is rich!

The second things don’t go the way they want, leftist progressive statists whine like stuck pigs. And my apology to stuck pigs.

Facebook finally releases what appears to be a reasonable and fair ad policy prior to the 2020 election heating up, and because the dems get no advantage from it, they claim that Zuckerberg, of

all people, is getting his marching orders from president Trump.

And as government statists always do, they wield the power of the federal government as a bludgeon to threaten a private company.

Like I said – this is rich.

from NewsBusters:

The media and Democrats want to limit Facebook ads before the 2020 election. But Facebook refused to cave in to their demands.

In a Jan. 9 blog post published by Facebook Director of Product Management Rob Leathern, the company argued that “we don’t think decisions about political ads should be made by private companies.” Facebook stated that its principle was that “people should be able to hear from those who wish to lead them, warts and all, and that what they say should be scrutinized and debated in public.” read more

Let Girls Compete Against Girls!

It’s about time that least a few State lawmakers take the lead on this politically correct nonsense. What ever happened to the term “Girl Power?”

It is the height of unfairness and hypocrisy that lawmakers allow guys, dressed up as girls, to compete in athletic events, knowing full well that the REAL females don’t have a prayer of prevailing.

Unlike guys, girls and young women play sports for the love only. Unlike guys, there is little to no hope of parlaying athletic talent into a professional career of merit. There is no NFL, NHL, MBA and the WNBA is for a very select few.

But now that love of the sport is being sullied and ruined for many young women. However, there may be an awakening and some help on the horizon – at least for some.

State Lawmakers Push To Protect Girls From Competing Against Biological Males In Sports

 

One of these things is not the the others!

Legislation is for ‘every dad who’s got a daughter’

The Democrat-controlled U.S. House wants to force schools to let biologically male students compete in girls’ sports.

State lawmakers in Tennessee and Washington have their own ideas, however, taking preemptive action to keep school sports separated by biological sex. read more

WND Exclusive – A New Year – Time to Reintroduce the 10 Tenets of Conservatism

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

Regarding socialism, it wasn’t that long ago, only about 10 years, that Democrats were singing a different tune. In reaction to a 2009 Newsweek cover entitled, “We Are All Socialists Now,” then Rep. Carol Shea-Porter, D-N.H., at a town hall meeting in 2010, exclaimed, “I don’t think anybody in this country believes in socialism. I don’t know ’em, and I don’t hang out with ’em, but maybe you do.”

You can’t hardly say that anymore. Socialism/communism/leftism is on the rise, especially among younger voters. A Fox News poll from just a couple of weeks ago “finds 31 percent of voters view socialism favorably, up 6 percentage points since February (the first time the question was asked).”

This is lunacy, of course. But the poll is likely fairly accurate. So what can be done?

In the past, I and many other conservatives have insisted that we on the right must educate the electorate. But this requires us to hold their attention long enough to do so.

Sadly, that’s getting increasingly difficult. So what’s the alternative? Conservatism isn’t really conducive to sound bites and slogans. read more

Podcast – Bernie Doesn’t Hate Billionaires – LA School Wellness Centers

by: Brent Smith

Bernie Sanders has a mini-commercial on YouTube where he says elections have been hijacked by billionaires. Of course he’s talking about Trump.

Bernie has been quoted saying he doesn’t think billionaires should even exist. At least all but one – George Soros.

I discuss Bernie and George and other leftist billionaires who fund everything – including Bernie.

 

LA County School District is teaming up with Planned Parenthood to install 50 abortion centers in their high schools.

Oh they’re not calling them abortion clinics and say they won’t provide that service. Not right away anyway.

I discuss what their plan actually is, because it’s the same as every other leftist program. Start small and then grow it after it’s firmly in place and entrenched. read more

Deplorable has a New Meaning – And it’s Nancy Pelosi

by: Brent Smith

Don’tcha just love the flags?

Remember when Hillary Clinton described us as “deplorables?”

Well there’s a new definition, and it describes the impeachment speech that Nancy Pelosi gave the other day. There was nothing quite as deplorable as listening to 5 minutes and 42 seconds of disingenuous faux-patriotism from a San Francisco leftist who, like her fellow leftists would, if they could, shred the Constitution.

It was the most despicable display I’ve seen since the last time Adam Schiff opened his mouth. So really – not so long ago.

Up to the point of the phony Trump impeachment, we never heard a single democrat quoting the founding fathers or our founding documents. Until recently, not a single leftist has mentioned that the United States is in fact a Republic, and not a democracy. However Pelosi intentionally intermingled the two terms as if they are synonymous.

She began by describing our revolution and our want to break free from an oppressive King, King George III, and “the King’s refusal to follow rightfully passed laws.” This, of course, is also meant to describe president Trump. read more

The War on the Electoral College has Begun – Again

As you read the following post, trying to keep up with the warped logic of the democrats – remember one thing. And it’s the one thing I never hear Republicans or conservatives (not always one and the same) argue. And that is, except for two States, the candidate who wins each State’s Electoral College must first win that State’s popular vote. Every State but two is winner take all.

What the left is doing is purposely muddying the water to make it appear that the democrat is being robbed of the victory the people granted him or her. As if their vote doesn’t count. But we know it does count, as much as it ever did.  The dems don’t just want a popular vote election. What they want is what the founders warned of – a cumulative popular vote election, where a few States with the largest concentrations of population reside, and thus sway the election.

from the Federalist:

Warren: I’ll Be ‘Last American President Elected By The Electoral College’

Progressives like Warren want to abolish the Electoral College because they want to get rid of our constitutional system entirely

On Monday, Sen. Elizabeth Warren reiterated her view that the Electoral College should be abolished and U.S. presidents should be elected by popular vote. “My goal is to get elected—but I plan to be the last American president to be elected by the Electoral College. I want my second term to be elected by direct vote,” she tweeted.

In the accompanying video clip, she said, “Call me old fashioned, but I think the person who gets the most votes should win.”

Warren has a curious idea of what counts as “old fashioned,” since her position on the Electoral College puts her at odds with the decidedly old fashioned Founding Fathers, who rightly worried about what James Madison called the “tyranny of the majority.”

Democrats are apparently unbothered by this possibility, not least because they believe they’ve secured a permanent majority and, if they could just seize power, they would govern as benign rulers. What’s standing in their way is nothing less than our constitutional system.

 

That’s why you see Democrats coming out against not just the Electoral College but also the Senate and the Supreme Court. Why should Wyoming or Iowa have two votes in the Senate, so the thinking goes, when so few people live there? Why should five Supreme Court justices decide contentious questions about, say, gun rights? (Expect to hear howls of protest from the left if the gun rights case the justices heard on Monday, New York State Rifle & Pistol Association v. City of New York, doesn’t go their way.)

It’s not just Warren. According to one poll earlier this year, 60 percent of Democratic voters support abolishing the Electoral College, and much of the mainstream media seems to agree. After the 2016 election, The New York Times attacked the Electoral College as an “antiquated mechanism,” Time magazine published an article arguing the Electoral College was designed to protect slavery, and E. J. Dionne Jr. of The Washington Post compared it to a game of chance in a casino.
