The Truth About Robert E. Lee That Liberals Hope You Never Hear

ON AUGUST 15, 2017 AT 5:24 AM

The removal of a statue of Robert E. Lee was the flashpoint that brought white supremacists to Charlottesville, Virginia, and reignited a national debate over Confederate monuments. But what do most Americans know about the Confederate general? Continue reading “The Truth About Robert E. Lee That Liberals Hope You Never Hear”

Taxation, Slavery, and Consent

Chris Calton

I could see no reason why I should, at the end of each week, pour the reward of my toil into the purse of my master. When I carried to him my weekly wages, he would, after counting the money, look me in the face with a robber-like fierceness, and ask, “Is this all?” He was satisfied with nothing less than the last cent. He would, however, when I made him six dollars, sometimes gives me six cents, to encourage me. (emphasis added) Continue reading “Taxation, Slavery, and Consent”

Take Down the Statues of Robert Byrd

August 17, 2017

By Daniel John Sobieski

President Trump had it right when, during his press conference on infrastructure he addressed the nonstop questions on Charlottesville, he asked if those obsessed with fears of white nationalism if they would also remove statues and monuments to George Washington and Thomas Jefferson, both slave owners, in addition to the statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee.

Trump’s critics responded that while Washington and Jefferson were slave owners, they did not go to war to defend slavery. True enough, but also true is the fact that white nationalism had its roots in the Democratic post-Civil War south and that the KKK was founded by Democrats to suppress blacks liberated by the Republican administration of President Abraham Lincoln.

My hometown, Baltimore, is one of the most violent and dysfunctional cities in the country. The failed policies of socialism, anti-family values, and “soft on crime” have taken one of the most famous cities down from a population of 900,000 in the 1960s to roughly 600,000 today. But never fear: The liberal leaders in Baltimore and other blue cesspools have discovered the perfect solution to avoiding the difficult policy challenges of our time — they have declared war on Robert E. Lee. Continue reading “Why the obsession with tearing down monuments is dumb & dangerous”

America’s Deadly Sins

August 13, 2017

By Deana Chadwell

Most Americans are sick of self-righteous, breast-beating leftists moaning about the shame they bear for being American. They claim we have become wealthy “on the backs” of the “oppressed” –- as if no American ever worked for anything himself. They whine that America has treated its women badly, its natives even worse and that the poor are still poor, and the rich, heaven forbid, are still rich. Shame on us. Really? Let’s take score.

You just might be a Progressive Democrat if…

August 3, 2017

By Richard Kirk

Jeff Foxworthy made it big with his “you just might be a redneck” routine.  Foxworthy’s success inspired me to flatter him, sincerely, with a “you just might be a Progressive Democrat” imitation.  The take-off goes as follows:

If you think you are the most tolerant person in the room but label all opposing views “hate speech,” you just might be a Progressive Democrat. Continue reading “You just might be a Progressive Democrat if…”

Recruiting the Millennials

Are Republicans the party of a bunch of older people?  It is even commonly referred to as the GOP, Grand Old Party.  According to a Bloomberg article, among the Millennial generation, 18- to 29-year-olds, Trump earned 37 percent, and a 2016 poll said only 1 in 5 leans Republican.  So what is being done to energize this young generation to come on board?

One organization that has decided not to sit on the sidelines, but to get the Millennials involved is the Maverick PAC.  Senator Ted Cruz, wanting to recruit top young professionals in the state of Texas, founded it in 2004.  In 2009, it went national after George P. Bush became its chairman, currently has 35 chapters throughout the U.S.

By: Chris Pandolfo | February 20, 2017

The sitting president of the United States is always in contention to be declared the “worst president” in history by his partisan opponents. The same is true for President Donald Trump.  But what makes a president a bad president? Is it bad policy? Is it a failure to rise to the occasion during a crisis? In honor of Presidents Day, here are five presidents conservatives should consider among the WORST presidents.

The dishonorable mention: Barack Obama

The Pied Pipers of the Millennials

June 12, 2017

By Christopher Chantrill

 

A couple of weeks ago, John O’Sullivan was confidently writing about the British Conservative Party finally getting it all together, and uniting the three strands of Toryism — the economic freedom and enterprise of Thatcher, the nationalism of Churchill and Disraeli, and the skepticism of Peel and Lord Salisbury — into a real political force at last. And I wrote approvingly of this prospect on my blog.

Well, so much for that. After the British General Election on June 8, we are being taught that Corbyn’s leftism is in the driver’s seat, powered by the enthusiasm of Millennials. Continue reading “The Pied Pipers of the Millennials”
