Chick-fil-A Destroys Its Brand

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 Age of Democracy May Be Over

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

In the trade-off between freedom and order, people will ultimately opt for order. Why are these outbursts of violent protests and rioting taking place in stable, free, and prosperous societies? If the beneficiaries of freedoms and democratic rights come to regard them as insufficient to produce the political, economic, and social results they demand, what does that portend for democracy’s future? If the “end of history” and worldwide triumph of democratic capitalism thesis has, as most agree, been disproven, is it possible that the Age of Democracy is itself a passing phase in the history of the West and the world?

How Long Before Hong Kong Suffers Bloody Communist Crackdown?

Demands by Hong Kong citizens for freedom and government accountability represent an existential threat to the system of social credit-imposed conformity that now undergirds Communist Chinese society. The United States must be prepared to confront the Communist Chinese strongly and firmly if and when the much-anticipated crackdown comes.

Karma Is A B-Word For Oberlin College

Oberlin College, long known as one the military academies for social justice warriors, just found out how expensive inciting vengeful mobs of liberals to target innocent people can be after a jury slapped the college with some $43 million in real and punitive damages for its conduct toward family business Gibson’s Bakery.

Exposing Antifa, The Shock Troops Of The Democrats’ Civil War

Exposing their identities seems to have touched a cord with the usually masked thugs of Antifa, who rely on covering their faces to protect them from being identified when they commit assault, arson, vandalism and various other crimes.

Democrats' 1968 rerun will have a November like last

Charles Hurt, Washington Times

There is good news. In the summer of 1968, sober-minded American voters saw the daily drumbeat of the “Antifa” fascists on television. Voters did not freak out and riot back in the streets. They did not arm up and shoot back. No, they just showed up at the voting booth in November. And delivered one of the most stunning rebukes to the “Antifa” fascist crowd in U.S. history. So, “Antifa,” please, keep the riots going. And definitely keep up your calls to abolish ICE. That is a real winner.

The Iran that Obama helped keep in place

Editors, Washington Examiner

Obama never lost faith in his own powers of persuasion. He carried throughout his presidency a naive belief, despite abundant evidence to the contrary, that all regimes are ultimately driven by the desire for prosperity, peace, and security. That the Iranian regime’s desires are nothing of the sort is now on full display. The whole world is watching, and President Trump would do well to learn from his predecessor’s appalling errors.

Digital Tyrants Enable Political Tyrants

The internet was once hailed as the ultimate channel for free expression and democratizing the world, but the worldwide web’s promise of unlimited free expression is being quickly eroded by the alliance between political tyrants anxious to retain their power and digital tyrants anxious to retain their power – and make money.

The Glass House of the NFL

Victor Davis Hanson, Investor's Business Daily

Most importantly, the league has entirely forgotten the fundamental rule of business: Never ignore, insult or talk down to the loyal consumers who provide the leagues' support and income. The NFL will not disappear, but its national significance is rapidly diminishing.

National Anthem Protests and the Disappearing Democratic Party

Eddie Zipperer, Lifezette

Whatever a small, angry, leftist mob screams, the Democrats scribble it on a post-it note and jam it into their platform. And the more they become the party of fringe groups and phony fringe issues, the more their power will evaporate into the political ether.

Adam Carolla and Dennis Prager Film to Expose Silliness of Safe Spaces and Snowflakes

“This is a story that must be told because the future of our country literally depends on what happens on these campuses,” said Dennis Prager. “If these students don’t understand the very concept of free speech, our whole nation is in trouble.”

The Battle of Berkeley

David French, National Review

We are now teetering on the edge of a truly terrifying incident, one trigger-pull away from a slaughter. Campus and urban progressives have a choice to make. Is this a nation of laws? If it is, then it’s time to grow a backbone, protect free speech, punish rioters, and expel those who disrupt the educational environment regardless of ideology. There should be no more sympathy or leniency for the lawless social-justice warrior than there is for the lawless neo-Nazi.

When ‘safe spaces’ turn violent

Rich Lowry, New York Post

If campuses aren’t to sink further into their current miasma of illiberalism, administrators will have to actively fight the tide of suppression. It’s not enough to say the right things about free speech, they have to punish thuggish student agitators. Otherwise, college campuses may become increasingly unsafe spaces for anyone departing from a coercive orthodoxy.

The F-Bomb Opposition To President Trump

Conservatives and the Trump administration should not underestimate what is going on here based on what the useful idiots of Hollywood say. They are merely fronting for Angela Davis, Linda Sarsour, George Soros and the much larger and more sinister forces of the Red – Green Axis.

A Conservative's Guide To The Trump - Pence Inauguration

The oath of office ceremony and parade are free and open to the public. Security will be tight at all events and public viewing areas, but don’t be afraid to come to see this historic event and participate in the celebration of the rebirth of freedom in our country.

By Any Means Necessary

The Inauguration Day demonstrations can serve as an object lesson for many Americans. First, they will give us a good picture of the bullet we dodged, the type of PC-induced intolerance that would have been more broadly infused into America had Hillary Clinton won the presidency. Second, we’ll get a really good inspection of what political correctness looks like in its more advanced stage—after it’s morphed literally into mob behavior.

Trump vs the Cult of Political Correctness

When we look at this week’s protests during the Trump -- Pence inauguration and their potential for violence we need to see most protesters for what they are; victims of Far-Left propaganda and the cult of political correctness.

George Soros, Big Banks And Google Fund Anti-Trump Resistance Group

Justin Caruso, Daily Caller

The liberal think tank Center for American Progress (CAP), now fashioning itself as a powerful anti-Trump force, is funded by George Soros, big banks and several large corporations. CAP, founded in 2003 by former Hillary Clinton campaign chair John Podesta, has long been a prominent liberal think tank in Washington. Now, they look to be the leader of efforts on the left to fight against Donald Trump’s incoming administration though their advocacy wing, the Center for American Progress Action Fund (CAPAF).

Plaintive Wails: A Month Since Trump’s Win, Still No Sign of Maturity

Scott McKay, The American Spectator

So it is a time for gloating, and rejoicing at the end of the Hard Left’s power. And for celebration of their time in the wilderness — such as it will be, because many of them retain comfy sinecures in universities, media and even, increasingly, within the ranks of corporate America. That time may be long. A political party headed by Keith Ellison and Nancy Pelosi is not a party poised for success anytime soon.

Conservatives Demand Action Against Foreign-Funded Anti-Trump Violence

A group of conservative leaders is urging both houses of Congress to “establish and fund permanent standing committees to conduct hearings and investigations, take testimony, and issue reports on all foreign-funded influence operations inside the United States, and on organizations and movements and fraudulent tax-exempt foundations devoted to the overthrow of the Constitution of the United States.”
