Is Tim Scott the next Gold Plated Shiny Object for Republicans to Chase?

After all, he is the ONLY black Republican U.S. Senator.

That’s apparently supposed to mean something, despite the fact we’re supposed to be the party of substance, not identity politics.

Does no one heed the words of Dr. King anymore? Does no one care about substance over skin color?

I didn’t fall in love (intellectually speaking) with Thomas Sowell, and the late great Walter Williams because they’re black. I couldn’t care less if they’re black. They are both geniuses in their own right, and Williams was hilarious at times. He was my favorite
Limbaugh fill-in host by far. read more

Video Podcast – Teacher gets canned for not Kowtowing to the Radicals

There’s a private school, K through 12, in Manhattan, New York City, called the Grace Church School. As you’ll see in a moment, that name is an oxymoron.

It costs $57,000 a year to attend.

It’s gotten some press recently as Paul Rossi, a math teacher, was let go, his contract was not renewed. Or as the school says, he “was relieved of his teaching duties.”

Why you ask?

Well because he took issue with their new curriculum that now includes a 12 page “language inclusive” guide, and the addition of “critical race theory.” read more

Not Even Exercise is Safe from Wokeness

by: Brent Smith

I don’t do yoga – never have.

The closest I got was to take a group work-out-like class to help a friend. It was basically me and bunch of women. Talk about feeling like a fish out of water.

But I do know one thing. When I was taking part in the class, I sure wish we could have injected a political discussion or two as we were in our plank position. Thank would have been great.

The Big 6 are limiting Free Speech

by: Brent Smith

Technology has proven to be a very worrisome double edged sword. On one hand, it has never been easier to disseminate your views and opinion.

You can self-publish an entire book for next to nothing, start your own news, opinion or entertainment website. You are able to “go live” on the internet whenever the spirit moves you.

But on the other hand, if your news, opinion or entertainment is somehow displeasing to the corporation providing you the platform, the corporation, not the government, is who you have to fear from them shutting you down.

It is a strange time we live in that we have to fear both the power of the government and so-called private industry. But which is to be feared most?

from the Federalist:

Is Big Business Now A Greater Threat To Free Speech Than Government?

As I wrote in a preceding essay, the First Amendment was written to limit the government’s power. In the 18th century, only the state was conceived as possibly wielding the power to keep free people from speaking their minds. Thus, if maintaining a free people requires free speech, it followed that the government must be kept from controlling speech. For a long time, no more was necessary, but that would change.

As the United States grew in population and prosperity, there was very little agitation against business. There did not need to be. Most businesses were small affairs, owned by one man or one family, employing a handful of workers. Relations between labor and management were dealt with between individuals.

In 1854, Abraham Lincoln summarized this small-scale economy, speaking of a system in which a man “may look forward and hope to be a hired laborer this year and the next, work for himself afterward, and finally to hire men to work for him! That is the true system.”

Yet as corporations grew in size and power, that “true system” changed. Instead of one apprentice negotiating with an owner, a company that employed thousands would tell workers what they would get: take it or leave it.

In response, workers began to join together in trade unions, leveling the playing field, although diminishing their own independence. The balance between workers and management was restored, but the growing power of corporations still overpowered that of individual consumers.

Antitrust and utility laws were the response, but none of this much affected the realm of free speech. There was no news monopoly — newspapers were more plentiful than today — and restrictions on the new technology of radio came from the government, not the station owners. The biggest threat to the practice of free speech remained the state.

Leftist Hypocrite Doesn’t Want Security for Us

It’s hard to say which radical leftist political hack is the dumbest of them all. Or maybe they’re not as stupid as they act and sound, but instead try to act so woke that it just seems this way.

I might think this of some democrats, especially the older ones – the Schumers and Pelosis. Neither of them are as dimwitted as they sound, but they’re forced to bend themselves into pretzels to remain viable to the new crop of leftist democrats, some of whom really just stupid and angry. read more

After Her Veto is it Time to Reexamine Gov. Kristi Noem?

Republican Governor of South Dakota, Kristi Noem, has done some real good in her State. And she’s been praised by conservatives for it. She is the next great ideological conservative, next to Florida Governor DeSantis.

But true conservatism is all about consistency and ideals, not necessarily pragmatism. It’s certainly not about the perception of whether one can win or not – and if not, than don’t even try. It’s about doing what is right, because it’s right.

It’s about signing the State’s Transgender Sports Bill because you know it’s the right thing to do, regardless of real or imagined backlash. It’s about serving the people of South Dakota. read more

Colorado Shooter is not a White Guy – No Contrition from the Left

by Brent Smith

By next week, maybe not even that long, this Colorado “mass shooting” event will have evaporated into nothing, for it blows up the left’s narrative.

Not a White Supremacist

As they always do, their knee-jerk vilification of the “white man” is astonishing. This narrative, thanks to the main stream media, has been beaten into minds of leftists. And their hatred for whites and conservatives is only amplified by these events. read more

A Guy Wins a Beauty Pageant – Are We Supposed to be Happy?

by: Brent Smith

I’m sorry, but this is just gruesome. And not for nothing, but where are the feminists? Not that feminists would approve of beauty pageants – they surely wouldn’t. Most, if not all feminists would insist that a beauty pageant just objectifies women – reduces them to mere objects of desire. Not to mention that it bothers many feminists because they know they couldn’t make the grade, as it were.

As Rush Limbaugh said: “Feminism was established to allow unattractive women easier access to the mainstream.” read more

When Will We Learn – Never Apologize to the Left

by: Brent Smith

As human beings, most of us go out of our way not to offend one another.

And if we mistakenly do so, more often than not, we apologize. Maybe the other party simply mistook what was expressed. Maybe we didn’t express or explain our point properly. It could be any number of things.

But when it’s said and done, it’s over – what under the bridge. This is part and parcel of human interaction. We say or do something stupid or impulsive, we apologize – all is forgiven and life goes on. read more

The Teacher’s Union is Bad News

by Brent Smith

Public Unions are bad news. And the worst of them is the Public sector Teacher’s Union.

They are the definition of two wolves and and sheep deciding on what to have for dinner. One wolf is the government, the other is a government Union, and our kids are the sheep. The Public Sector negotiating with the Public Sector to decide the fate of private citizens. Sounds fair.

It’s always been this way, but never has it been more defined than it is today.

And The Federalist makes the point rather nicely. read more
