How Disagreement Became ‘Hate’

Robert Stacy McCain, The American Spectator

Because the Left can’t win in the marketplace of ideas, they are attempting to shut down their critics, to label opponents “fascists” or “white supremacists,” to exercise totalitarian control over public discourse in the same way left-wing professors and student “Antifa” mobs now control university campuses. Tucker Carlson understands this, and his response to the Left’s smear tactics has been to call them out by name and expose them in front of his 3 million viewers. He’s winning, and I’d say this is driving his enemies crazy, but the Left has never been entirely sane.

Every candidate must learn his past is never past

Wesley Pruden, Washington Times

In our present day, no sin or shortcoming is so far in the past that a man is entitled to forget about it. In the age of the Internet, where every burp and hiccup is recorded and archived (why no pundit in his right mind would ever run for anything), a candidate can never be sure that one of those burps and hiccups will return from the past to bring him severe heartburn. The man who would be king (or even president) faces the hard reality that there’s no statute of limitations. In a reasonable world there would be, but none of us lives there.

Every Time Democrats Talk, I Want To Vote For Trump Twice

George S. Bardmesser, The Federalist

Today, every single Democrat I can name is working overtime to make certain that I will pull the lever for Trump again, and with both hands this time. Trump need not worry about locking down my vote––the Democrats are doing all the heavy lifting. Every time the Democrats and their media allies peddle yet another “end of the Trump presidency bombshell,” I laugh hysterically. If I laughed any harder, people would think I was having an epileptic seizure. I can’t even keep track of half the revelations that were supposed to bring Trump to an ignominious end.

We Stand With Tucker Carlson: Never Bow To Leftist Attempts At Censorship

Tucker Carlson is absolutely right, what the Left’s outrage machine is about is power, and controlling what you see, hear and eventually what you think. And the only way to keep that power from them is to never bow to them.

The Mothers Who Can't Speak on the Record

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

The horror these mothers feel is a non-recognized emotion. To utter it publicly is hate speech. As one concluded, this is a scenario that she "never dreamed any parent would have to face, at least not in the United States. But this is our reality now — a reality that the mainstream media won't touch." Where are the state and federal authorities who need to stop this? Where are the parents? Where are the churches? Our society is collapsing, and they all think it's so wrong. Wrong, wrong, wrong, they say. And then they do nothing about it.

Lies From The Left: The Covington Catholic Kids

From our perspective, none of the lies spread about the Covington Catholic kids spread by accident because the media business of today is not driven by an unbiased desire to report the truth, rather it is driven by the desire to mold public opinion according to Leftist narratives. And key to molding public opinion is establishing moral superiority.

The Left’s Racist Insanity

We see in the debate over whether Will Smith is dark enough to play Richard Williams that the Left’s long-term effort to divide America along racial and ethnic lines is rapidly reaching its logical conclusion in which “colorism” is now to be added to race and ethnicity to become a dividing determinant.

Mainstream Media Blacks Out The Democrats’ Infanticide Vote

David Harsanyi, The Federalist

I will confess that the search tools for some of these sites are difficult to navigate, so I may have missed something. Clearly, however, most of the mainstream media sources did their best interference for Democrats on the Born Alive anti-infanticide bill, most of whom took an unconscionable vote this week that couldn’t be spun by the typical bias. Or put it this way, if Republicans had taken a vote that was deeply unpopular with the majority of Americans, you’d be hearing about it. Over and over again.

CPAC 2019: Fake Hate, Real Fear

Robert Stacy McCain, The American Spectator

The climate of fear generated by the media’s anti-Trump obsession will require extra security at CPAC this week, because nobody knows what might be in the minds of deluded leftists. Meanwhile, conservative activists attending the conference will be hearing from an all-star roster of GOP officials — congressmen, senators, governors, Cabinet secretaries — and media figures including Michelle Malkin, Laura Ingraham, and Mark Levin. President Trump is scheduled to speak at CPAC shortly before noon Saturday.

Ugly, Predicable and Irrelevant

What the Democrats, the anti-Trump media and the #NeverTrump crowd don’t seem to understand is that most of Michael Cohen's claims were aired in one form or another during the 2016 campaign and people still voted for Donald Trump.

The Mythical Rise in White Supremacist Violence

David Catron, The American Spectator

The evidence of pervasive white supremacist violence is pretty thin, if you allow for the number of random crazies that appear in any particular ethnic community. You won’t get the Democrats to admit this, of course. They need the black vote, so they will do and say just about anything. Thus, they claim that a guy from Queens and the GOP has revived the Democrat traditions of white supremacy and lynching. They seem to believe that this strategy will bring back the black voters who failed to show in 2016.

Spare me all the pieties about Jussie Smollett

Thomas Lifson, American Thinker

Let's face it: there is a lot of posterior-covering underway by people who jumped on a story that was full of obvious holes. As a Trump-supporter living in a city where conservatives who are visible are subject to physical attack,  I am angry at the fuel Smollett threw on the fire of Trump-hatred.  He deserves no sympathy, no compassion, but he does merit a long prison term for the harm he has inflicted and to help stem the tide of fake hate crimes.

Trump hate crime ‘victims’ are just in it for the money

Michael Goodwin, New York Post

Smollett’s scheme would have made no sense unless he could count on the complete cooperation of one other player: the media. He would need them to swallow his story, then amplify it and repeat it a thousand times over. Naturally, they did, because they, too, desperately wanted it to be true. He hand-picked his interviewers, and played the role of his life — a defiant victim of Trump Nation. Smollett aimed to be so good and so appealing that he wouldn’t just get a raise, he’d be a mega-star and his career would take off like a rocket.

The Left’s 2018 victory was fueled by millions of small-dollar donors—if Conservatives don’t catch up quickly, we will lose America Part 2 of 2

By Richard A Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
All total, ActBlue served as the conduit for raising more than $1.6 billion in the 2017-18 election cycle.  And remember, all of that went to the Democrats. In the midterm elections, the leftist tilt in small donations was critical for the Democrats’ success in taking over the House of Representatives.  The future is even more bleak—unless we conservatives wake up and get busy.

The Strange Paradoxes of Our Age

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

The common thread to the paradoxes that we encounter daily is the inconsistency of progressivism itself — or rather its ad hoc adoption of any means necessary to be justified by an anointed end, which is the quest for power and control. Progressivism is not an empirical or coherent creed, but contrary both to human nature and the record of history — in its arrogance that an elite, if only provided with enough money, power, and good intentions, can create heaven on earth rather than hell.

Long Before The Left, Conservatives Pioneered Small-Donor, Grassroots Fundraising Part 1 of 2

By Richard A Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
The New York Times has been printing breathless accounts for the past two years about how the Democrats and the Left have been clobbering the Republicans in small-dollar (under $200) fundraising donations.  The intended message is clear:  The Democrats are “the party of the people.”  Well, as Paul Harvey used to say, “Here’s the rest of the story.”

The Republican Pouncing Problem

Ben Shapiro, CNS News

Pouncing is never a story. Ever. It is a simple fact of politics that when people screw up, their political opponents react with alacrity. Highlighting that response rather than the underlying screw-up is the equivalent of a headline that reads "Sun Rises in Morning." Yet that's what the media do ... whenever Democrats screw up. Republican gaffes are a story in and of themselves. Democratic gaffes aren't a story; Republican nastiness is. All of which demonstrates that a huge swath of the media is inseparable from the Democratic Party.

Whistling Past the 'Green New Deal'

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

The socialists are running the show at the Democratic National Committee, and to say they're not ready for prime time is an understatement. Theirs are policies grade schoolers might love. Or maybe even they would laugh at the inanities prescribed. So are the media at all concerned? It's so nice to be a Democrat with today's network-news environment. No ABC or NBC anchor will narrate a commercial sternly warning, "Air travel. A cheeseburger. A glass of milk. You may have them today, but you may be about to lose them! Is this what the country wants?"

No, Candace Owens Isn’t a Nazi Apologist

David Catron, The American Spectator

All of the attempts to slander, silence, and marginalize Owens relate to a lethal Democratic vulnerability. The party has become so dependent on the black vote that it cannot win a presidential election without a level of enthusiasm in that community comparable to that which former President Obama enjoyed. Consequently, any Democrat with an IQ exceeding single digits is (and should be) terrified by the latest Owens project: Blexit. This is the movement she has launched to free black people from the Democrats.

Political Journalists Are Trying To Gaslight America

David Harsanyi, The Federalist

Trump says a lot of things, like claiming Mexico will pay for the border wall, and every reporter treats his political statements as if they are chiseled into a stone. They mock those who argue that Trump should be taken seriously, not literally. Yet Ocasio-Cortez can send out a FAQ and alleged journalists will claim that it never existed because it wasn’t part of a congressional bill. In reality, Ocasio-Cortez never walked the ideas back. Instead, it seems there was a move from rank bias to amateur gaslighting.
