Gallup: In U.S., Conservatives Outnumber Liberals by 11 Points

Susan Jones, CNS News

The poll found that in 2016, 36 percent of Americans said they are conservative, compared with 25 percent who identified as liberal (up from 17 percent in the 1990s); and 34 percent who identified as moderate (down from 43 percent in the early 1990s). Gallup concludes that with most Republicans already identifying as conservative and more Democrats identifying as liberal, the parties are moving further apart ideologically.

The death throes of political correctness

Editors, Washington Examiner

As Trump repeatedly did and said things that would have ended anyone else's political career, he won rather than lost admiration. Why? Because by example, not just by precept, he rejected, day in and day out, every convention and custom demanded by an overbearing, supercilious and detested cultural elite. He became the champion of the common man because he made himself the enemy of their enemy.

Democrats Have Become the Old Fogeys of Politics -- Ideologically & Physically

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

Democrats are, indeed, the old fogeys of politics, honed in the crucible of 1968 and seemingly stuck there for the last 48 years, never revising a single thought, not even now that Tom Hayden is dead, except for the short period when Newt Gingrich put an economic gun to Bill Clinton's head and things got better for a while.

'Panic in Progressive Park' -- What If Trump Is Actually Good?

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

Reason for the panic -- the dawning realization, repressed and often unrecognized though it may be, that Donald Trump may even a be a good president, possibly a great one. Then what? If anything could cause panic among liberals, progressives, and the media (apologies for the redundancy), that's it.

Did The Smug Liberals Of The Media Get Our Message?

Many in the liberal intelligentsia penned morose letters to the future about what a Trump victory might mean and a few, such as National Public Radio personality Garrison Keillor, delivered vitriolic attacks on their fellow Americans for electing Trump. However, a few, such as Michael Wolff and Glenn Greenwald, seem to get the meaning of the Trump movement and victory.

The Response to This Weekend’s Terror Attacks Showed Willful Blindness in Real Time

Andrew C. McCarthy, National Review

There are no “homegrown” attacks because the ideology is alien. There are no “lone wolves” because the wolves are part of a huge pack — a fundamentalist Islamic anti-Western movement that has millions of adherents, some percentage of which will always be willing to take up arms and kill for the cause.

The Liberal Tilt at Poltifact

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

The PolitiFact political agenda jumps off the page. On the Republican side, Sen. Ted Cruz lands on the "False" side 65 percent of the time, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich 57 percent of the time and former Sen. Rick Santorum 55 percent of the time. For Democrats, President Obama is ruled false 25 percent of the time, and Sen. Bernie Sanders is false only 30 percent of the time. This is the guy who routinely says, "the business model of Wall Street is fraud."

Left Favors the State Over the People in Ferguson

Erick Erickson, Red State

The left is opposed to the people & instead prefers left-wing Dems to the citizenry in our democratic form of gov't. When a jury of peers doesn't see things the way the left sees things, the system has failed, the people are stupid, and the result is an injustice.

How Obama Turning Liberalism into Instrument of Coercion

Michael Barone, Washington Examiner

Today’s liberals seem bent on pushing people around, preventing them from speaking their minds & practicing their beliefs. It’s not just the language that’s changed.

It's Time to Offend Some Liberals

Quin Hillyer, National Review Online

Many on the left say not only that the state should legally recognize just about any commitment somebody might decide to solemnize, but also that the state should penalize a private decision not to bake a cake or create a bouquet for a particular commitment ceremony. Now that should be grounds for civil disobedience.

Thoughts on Donald Sterling: In America, Jerks Have Rights Too

After NBA Commissioner Adam Silver announced he was banning LA Clippers owner Donald Sterling for life for making racially charged remarks, Sterling said he’s not selling the team.

War on Voter ID Laws Rages On

John Hayward, Human Events

The Surveillance State is cheerfully amassing terabytes of information on every American, but we still indulge the pretense that properly identifying voters is a huge task, undertaken only by racists. Ballot protection is an area where “progressives” don’t seem very interested in progress.
