A brand is more than food and service, it is also what customers perceive about the corporate ethos. Chick-fil-A, with the announcement that it will no longer donate to the Salvation Army and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, has effectively destroyed the perception that it still adheres to founder S. Truett Cathy’s Christ-centered corporate values.

The fact is, much as Democrats and their Deep State allies hate Donald Trump, policy disagreements are not impeachable offenses. Schiff and the Democrats know they’ve got nothing else to back up their impeachment hoax other than bureaucrats voicing their opinions, but they continue to tear the country apart anyway.

The Democrats aren’t making any headway on impeachment, their various “plans” are ridiculous and impractical and their catastrophic warnings about global warming and “climate change” won’t be well received by the shivering country enduring a heinous cold spell. But they have to fill a couple hours, don’t they?

Leaked cables reported by The New York Times detail the extent to which Iraq has fallen under Iranian influence since the American invasion in 2003, which transformed Iraq into a gateway for Iranian power, connecting the Islamic Republic’s geography of dominance from the shores of the Persian Gulf to the Mediterranean Sea.

Over 100 leaders of conservative organizations have put their names to a Conservative Action Project Memo to the Movement stating that conservatives reject attempts by Congress to pass yet another bloated, pork-filled spending bill.

One can’t help but think if the GOP doesn’t unite to fight back against the misinformation forces of the left that they’ll continue to lose once-loyal backers like doctors and medical professionals. Moving to the mushy center won’t help things. The “morons” are taking over and Republicans are clueless on how to stop it.

Much to our surprise, and the benefit of the country, Attorney General Bill Barr has emerged as one of the few rational people left in establishment Washington DC and a strong and effective advocate of constitutional conservatism.

In remarks delivered to the Taxpayers’ Association of Indian River County, retiring Indian River (Florida) County Commissioner Bob Solari took a look at the state of politics today and concluded that one of the great threats to American democracy is that the balance between reason and revelation no longer exists. Both reason and revelation have been denigrated and replaced by a post-modern discourse of emotion that undermines our democracy.

Whether it’s a “white knight” or “cherry picker” waiting in the wings, 2020 Democrats are showing signs of tangible unease as we move towards the primary season. Time is running out for the party to settle on a candidate to take on a very strong President Trump next year -- will they find one?

Watching Taylor and Kent left us with the impression that what this proceeding is really all about is Trump's foreign policy decisions, not this fake quid pro quo accusation, and it is Trump's America First foreign policy that really angers the Swamp and the Foggy Bottom cookie pushers at the State Department.

If the central message of the film Harriet is Harriet Tubman’s faith and reliance on God to inspire and sustain her fight for freedom, then the visual subtext of the movie is that very often the Lord’s chosen instrument to preserve her life and secure the freedom of her charges was one very large gun.

Mark Sanford’s #NeverTrump fool’s errand was destined to fail from the outset. The Democrats’ stupid impeachment witch hunt isn’t the reason why Sanford couldn’t get anyone interested in his cause -- there never really was one to begin with. Trump’s fate will be decided by the voters in 2020… but his enemies will never quit.

    Speaker Nancy Pelosi wants to wrap up impeachment as soon as possible before the debates resume in earnest and the primaries start, before the Horowitz and Durham reports, before the bored public wonders where exactly is the smoking gun, and before Trump’s polls get into the high forties. But mostly she just wants to get the off-putting Schiff off the national stage and to end his career as the icon of current progressivism. When Democratic inquisitors are reduced to lecturing the nation that “hearsay can be much better evidence than direct” testimony, and when Adam Schiff looks into the cameras and swears he has no idea who the whistleblower is, then it’s time to pack up the circus and leave town.

    The issues pulling continents, countries, and capitals apart thus appear to be growing, enduring, and, indeed, perhaps insoluble. Consider. The economic issues propelling workers into the streets to protest inequalities of wealth and income are occurring at a time when our world has never been more prosperous. The ethnic and racial clashes within and between nations seem increasingly beyond the capacity of democratic regimes to resolve peacefully. As for matters of fundamental belief—political, ideological, religious—the divides here, too, seem to be deepening and widening. Neither authoritarians nor the world’s democracies seem to have found a cure for the maladies that afflict our world’s unhappy citizens.

  • Ben Weingarten, The Federalist

    For decades banked on the world prioritizing money over all else. With China erecting modern gulags and threatening a new Tiananmen in Hong Kong, we in the West cannot avert our eyes from the tyranny we have been underwriting any longer. The vested interests of some Americans in this relationship cannot begin to outweigh the long-term strategic consequences, and the losses suffered by others in an artificial and ultimately self-defeating creative destruction that has taken place. The fundamental question ultimately we must ask is do we wish to be the proverbial capitalists selling the Communists the rope with which to hang us after their own? Woke Capital and its allies in the political establishment owe the American people an answer.

  • Cal Thomas, Washington Times

    It’s all a sham and a scam. We hear the same rhetoric every four years, especially about the wealthy and successful needing to pay their “fair share.” America is a land of opportunity, not guaranteed outcome. There are more opportunities than ever for a good education, good jobs and so many other things that make the country unique. Republicans have the better message. What they need is a better and more courageous way of promoting it. Desperation worked for Democrats during the Great Depression, but they have been living off inertia for more than seven decades. Desperation is not a policy, especially at a time when America is better off than it has been in decades. If impeachment is all Democrats have, it won’t be enough.

    What Bloomberg and Patrick both sense is that Biden can’t make it in the long run. Such concerns are usually references to Biden’s age, but Bloomberg, who will be nearly 79 years old on Inauguration Day 2021, is actually older than Biden. Democratic worries are understandable. But late, Hail Mary entrances don’t work. This race has been going on for months. There have been several debates. Voters have been listening. Iowa is fast approaching. The field is what it is. One of the candidates in the race right now will win the nomination, go on to face President Trump, and have a chance to become the next president. There’s no savior waiting to rescue Democrats — and that includes Deval Patrick and Michael Bloomberg.

  • Mark Shields, The American Spectator

    Democrats have been far less predictable and, seemingly, more emotional in selecting their presidential standard-bearers. While Republican voters, until quite recently, have predictably “fallen in line” by promoting the most recent runner-up, Democrats instead seem to want to “fall in love.” Democrats have a marked preference for the “new face” over those who have run before. Examples of this pattern include Barack Obama, John F. Kennedy, Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, Michael Dukakis, and George McGovern — all of whom were nominated as first-time candidates. The leading 2020 Democratic “fall in love” candidates, as of this writing, would appear to be Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren and South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg.

  • David Catron, The American Spectator

    The storied stupidity of the American voter prevented “quid pro quo” from going viral and the Democrats turned to their ever-present consultants. They conducted the inevitable focus groups and produced a new crop of calumny that included such buzzwords as “extortion,” “bribery,” “abuse of power,” and “corruption.” The voters understand that the latest “impeachment inquiry” is just a campaign strategy for the Democrats, who assume they are idiots. They know the people running this circus despise them and intend to fundamentally transform the nation’s institutions into something irreconcilable with individual liberty. It will, however, take more than focus groups and a few new talking points. America isn’t listening anymore.

  • Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

    Here’s the deal about impeachment. All this three-ring clown show stuff, all these poll-tested narratives (“Remember, our focus group in Duluth says ‘quid pro quo’ is 7.632 percent less evocative than ‘bribery’! Everyone go with ‘bribery’ from now on!”), all these endless, rehearsed resumé dumps they call their opening statements, mean nothing. It’s a joke. This is not a fact-finding inquiry. This is kabuki theater for dumb people, trying to swing them around to embracing the fait accompli that is impeachment. But no one is listening. No minds are changing, except for people getting sick of an elite that considers the fact that it no longer holds unchallenged power to be America’s biggest problem.

    Disney is launching its Disney Plus video streaming service, which promises to be tremendously popular, which is unfortunate. "Experts" from the enlightened side of the tracks are unrolling their grievances about how the Disney film catalogue is full of racism, sexism and loathsome bigotry of all sorts. It was only a matter of time, wasn't it? And is anyone surprised that Disney met this ridiculous assault with capitulation? There are villains and heroes of all colors and creeds in our history and literature. But the leftists obsess over racial and ethnic slights — and religious slights if the religion is perceived as a "minority," especially Islam — while Christians can be endlessly maligned.

  • Rebecca Hagelin, Washington Times

    While the leftist Democrats accuse the president of endangering freedom of the press, they rejoice when a pro-life journalist is denied First Amendment protections. In this case, Mr. Daleiden not only had his rights trampled, he was fined some $2 million for exposing Planned Parenthood’s bloody criminal practices. The president of the United States and the brave journalists in California are being pummeled by powerful liberal elitists who will stop at nothing to destroy them. If they can overthrow an election and destroy the First Amendment, imagine what they will do to you if you get under their skin. Will we work and vote for candidates who will fight to protect our Constitutional rights?

  • Michael Goodwin, New York Post

    The speaker, who often sounds and acts as if she is cuckoo, has gone full coup coup. Pelosi is now the zealot leading the charge to boot Trump from office by any means necessary, facts be damned. Evidence that the change was complete came when she spoke to reporters a day after the first hearing. Pelosi’s absurd act would be comical if she weren’t doing such great damage to America. I’ve written before how her friends distinguish the speaker from her party’s far-left crazies, but that’s no longer possible. She’s one of them. With her actions and ridiculous comparison to Nixon, she seals her fate as a rank partisan heedless of the national interest. Pelosi had another, better option. Governing.

    Bloomberg’s cave-in came just two days after former president Barack Obama sounded a warning cry to Democratic donors meeting in Washington, saying that Democrats risk tilting too far to the left to win elections. He cautioned that average voters aren’t going to agree with “certain left-leaning Twitter feeds or the activist wing of our party.” He urged Democrats to remember that “even as we push the envelope and we are bold in our vision, we also have to be rooted in reality.” As Bloomberg fills in political potholes on the left, he should remember that his repairs may come at the expense of his reputation as that rare officeholder who did what he thought was right and defended the results.

    This proposed rule does not change the eligibility criteria for asylum, and any illegal alien denied work authorization while their applications are pending still gains employment authorization if and when they are actually granted asylum. Ultimately, closing asylum loopholes and protecting the integrity of our Nation’s immigration system will benefit both the United States and those who qualify for humanitarian protection. An asylum system bogged down by those who will not likely qualify for asylum jeopardizes the fate of legitimate asylum seekers. USCIS is focused on strengthening America’s immigration system, stemming the crisis at the southern border, and protecting those who qualify for asylum under the law.

  • Byron York, Washington Examiner

    The Democrats' determination to cut off questions about the origins of the Trump-Ukraine investigation is strikingly similar to their determination to cut off questions about the origins of the Trump-Russia investigation. In both cases, they fought hard to keep secret the origins of investigations that have shaken the nation, deeply divided the electorate, and affected the future of the presidency. In the Trump-Russia affair, the investigation was entrusted to a special counsel who ultimately could not establish that Schiff's and the Democrats' key allegation. Now, House Democrats are doing the Trump-Ukraine investigation themselves, making it easier to reach the conclusion they want.

    The dramatic depictions of Ukraine as our embattled ally are false. We are not now nor have we ever been obligated to fight for its sovereignty or territorial integrity. Efforts to bring Ukraine, Moldova, and Georgia into NATO have been repeatedly rebuffed. Kent and Taylor are honorable men. But they are career diplomats of the Department of State and veteran advocates of a foreign policy that sees Russia as an enduring aggressor and Ukraine as a fighting ally entitled to U.S. military assistance. They have, in the old phrase, gone native. They champion the policies of yesterday and the embattled countries to which they are accredited and to whose causes they have become converted.
