Liberalism is an ideology.  Conservatism is a way of life.  The first one believes that government is owner and distributor of freedom and rights, while the other maintains that government exists to protect the rights and freedoms Man is born with.
One of my father’s best known witticisms was, “Some people are like the old prospector’s mule…you have to hit ‘em between the eyes with a two-by-four to get their attention.”  He was not wrong.  The past two decades have exposed far too many “low-information” voters who elected incompetent leftist politicians. 
All across our nation a quiet rage is building against the liberal assault upon American values.  More so than ever in the history of America, the concerns and patience of its people are being tested, tried and attacked by a group of elitists that is Hell-bent on the destruction of this country.  Voters can make a difference by adequately researching political candidates before casting their ballots. 
I want you to be resilient enough to protect your rights and resist tyranny.  America is calling, and we citizens must band together and fight or we lose our country to illegals, terrorists and Liberals.
Refuse to remain silent!  Question boldly, hold to the truth and speak without fear!  The only rights you have in this world are the ones you are willing to fight for.  But you are not alone.

"Liberalism is an ideology. Conservatism is a way of life. The difference between modern Liberalism and Conservatism is the first one believes that government is owner and distributor of freedom and rights, while the other maintains that government exists to protect the rights and freedoms Man is born with."


“The truth is like a lion; you don't have to defend it.  Let it loose; it will defend itself.”
~ St. Augustine

Signs are beginning to appear that the DEMOCRAT party is becoming more unglued than ever in its history.  The psychotic socialists and radical Muslims that snaked their way into congressional seats through the 2018 mid-term elections are exposing the leftist Democrat agenda that clear-thinking folks have long been aware of.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) released a six-page proposal for her much-ballyhooed Green New Deal. Before so much as reading it, presumably, Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA), who happens to be a 2020 presidential frontrunner, endorsed it:  She  should have read it.  Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) found herself unable to pretend to take it seriously.  The "children" are starting to run amok and making a mess.  They're creating political policy notions, such as universal health care, free college tuition, an end to fossil fuel usage, and total economic security for anyone unable or unwilling to work, that even the entrenched members of their party acknowledge are unreasonable, irresponsible, and unaffordable.

The top three DEMOCRAT government official in the Commonwealth of Virginia are under fire for alleged sexual misconduct and racial improprieties.  Governor Ralph Northam publicly endorsed infanticide by supporting full-term abortions.  He also gave several confused explanations for his wearing "blackface" in a photograph discovered in his medical school yearbook.  Attorney General Mark Herring called on the governor to resign, then admitted that he, too, once appeared in a similar "blackface" photo. 

[Hypocrisy, thy name is DEMOCRAT!] 

Lt. Governor Justin Fairfax has been accused of sexually assaulting at least one woman while in college.  The evidence supporting the victim's testimony is compelling, and even the National Organization for Women has called for Fairfax to resign.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller, director of the phony all-DEMOCRAT investigation into alleged involvement between President Trump and Russia during the 2016 election, has found himself under scrutiny for omitting exculpatory evidence in several FISA court applications.

Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) claimed to be of American Indian heritage on an application to the Texas Bar, yet she continues to insist that she has never falsified personal information to obtain preferential treatment.

House DEMOCRATS, led by Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA), and Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) have commenced partisan investigations in blind attempts to damage President Trump.  Schiff has been unwavering in his insistance that Trump colluded with Russia to win the 2016 presidential election, even though NO evidence has been presented to support such an allegation.  Nadler browbeat acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker in an attempt to solicit incriminating information against the president.

As expected and predicted, DEMOCRATS in the House of Representatives have created a "circular firing squad" for themselves, as freshmen socialists try to destroy the American economy, new committee chairs grasp at straws while conspiring against President Trump, and DEMOCRAT leadership refuses to address the invasion of illegal aliens through America's southern border.  It will be interesting to see which DEMOCRATS are the first to fall before political suicide!

Don't Be A "No-Information Voter!"

Voters in the United States can make a difference by adequately researching political candidates. Electing proven Conservatives is the first step in reversing the damage to our country caused by Liberals. Politicians must also be held accountable for their actions, and ineffective and dishonest lawmakers can and must be replaced either in scheduled elections or by recall provisions. If not, we will consent to our own oppression.

Many ignorant people want to punish individuals like me for accurately promoting the truth. If I’m verifiably correct, I will always speak my mind even if I’m a minority of one. I will defend my rights, and yours, against all enemies, both foreign and Democrat.

I want you to be resilient enough to protect your rights and resist tyranny. America is calling, and we citizens either band together and fight or we lose our country to illegals, terrorists and Liberals.

The Oath Of The Right-Wing Extremist:

“I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America.  And, to the Republic for which it stands:  one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”

CNN Offers Criticism-Free Praise for Green New Deal; Compares AOC, Markey to Gaga, Cooper!
By Curtis Houck , 2/7/2019, MRC Newsbusters
CNN special correspondent and far-left climate activist Bill “ignorant f***sticks” Weir joined afternoon CNN Newsroom host Brooke Baldwin Thursday for a criticism-free lovefest in honor of the Green New Deal. All told, the pair determined it was akin to NASA and a necessary step to save Earth without offering any questions or answers about how this move toward communism would be paid for.

If those things didn’t convince you that this four-minute-plus segment was a trainwreck, Baldwin sat in awe as Weir quipped that the Green New Deal was a love story for Earth, like A Star Is Born where Bradley Cooper could play Senator Ed Markey (D-NY) and Lady Gaga would be Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY).     
Baldwin began with, again, zero criticisms or wondering how everything would be paid for.

In the meantime, let's talk about this phrase that we’ve been hearing about all on the campaign trail, the Green New Deal. Well, today it became real on Capitol hill. Freshman congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a New York Democrat along with Massachusetts Senator Ed Markey just unveiled their plan to tackle climate change and what it does is, it calls for a ten year initiative that would phase out fossil fuel use and overhaul the nation's infrastructure. The resolution so far calls for a shift to renewable energy, the creation of high wage jobs, the elimination of greenhouse gases, investment in wind and solar and public investments in vulnerable communities. 
For those familiar with A Star Is Born, it’s not exactly the ending that Weir is probably looking for.
Giving one last chance for either one to ask how this would all be paid for or allude to any of the absurd proposals (more on those in a minute), Baldwin didn’t budge and instead Weir focused on how many don’t like Ocasio-Cortez.

WEIR: And wow, is she polarizing and this whole idea. 
BALDWIN: She is. 
WEIR: And some people — the hatred is just —
BALDWIN: She's got a big old target on her back. 
WEIR: — she’s got a big target on her back, but she's inspiring so many people. At the very least, she’s going to have people talking about the potential end of the world and maybe that's not a bad thing. 
BALDWIN: Thank you for coming on and explaining it the way in which you did, right? You understand now this Green New Deal.
Now, for the nonsense. The proposals to eliminate cars and domestic air travel would cause millions of people to lose their jobs (in addition to what AOC wants regarding the health care system). Weir suggested to this writer that there could be carbon-free planes, but he should get back to us when its something middle and lower-class Americans can afford.

Our friends over at The Federalist and Washington Examiner found a few others that included but were not limited to: Free education, guaranteed “healthy food,” a free house, free money for those “unable or unwilling” to work, and the banning of meat so we can rid the planet of cows who, like humans, can have flatulence.

Good luck trying to ask those who spend money to create jobs with businesses of their own or donate to charities why they should pay for all these things. In other words, the Green New Deal would, if implemented in full, make us the Soviet Union. So much for freedom.

"Do not fear the enemy, for your enemy can only take your life. It is far better that you fear the media, for they will take your HONOR. That awful power, the public opinion of a nation, is created in America by a horde of ignorant, self-complacent simpletons who failed at ditching and shoemaking and fetched up in journalism on their way to the poorhouse." ~ Mark Twain


CNN: Dems' 'Zero Tolerance' Policy Coming Back to Bite Them in Virginia!
By Mark Finkelstein, February 7, 2019, MRC Newsbusters

It was all fun and games for Dems when Brett Kavanaugh was in the barrel. But now that allegations of sexual misconduct and racial insensitivity threaten to take down Virginia's Governor, Lieutenant Governor, and Attorney General, and even—horror of horrors—elevate a Republican to the governorship, the Dem thrill is gone.

CNN's New Day was surprisingly tough on the Dems this morning. Washington Post reporter Toluse Olorunnipa began by offering an unsparing assessment of the Dem predicament. Olorunnipa said thatDemocrats run "the risk of being seen as hypocrites" if they don't apply to Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax and Attorney General Mark Herring the same "zero tolerance" standard they applied to others. 

Amazingly, substitute host Poppy Harlow, co-host John Berman and even Jackie Kucinich of the Daily Beastexpressed similar sentiments.      

Harlow said that the report that Tyson had brought her accusations to Rep. Bobby Scott more than a year ago was "complicating things" and was "really troubling," with Olorunnipa pointing out that it undermines Fairfax's claim that the accusation only surfaced for the first time when he was on the verge of becoming governor. 

Berman pointed out that Democrats have "set the bar high" when it comes to the sort of accusations Tyson has made, and that "if Democrats were to hold themselves to the standard they laid out before, there isn't much question about what they would do."

Kucinich then said that the "silence is deafening" from national Dems and activists regarding Tyson's accusation. Kucinich particularly pointed at Kirsten Gillibrand, saying she been "very vocal" when it came to Al Franken and others. 
Note: In contrast with the other panelists, who went after the Dems pretty hard, John Avlon tried to spread the blame around to Republicans: "the idea that this is a particularly Democratic problem doesn’t hold any water at all. There’s been a neo-Confederate strain that Republicans are playing footsie with for quite some time."

TOLUSE OLORUNNIPA: In order to maintain a certain level of credibility, they have to keep that zero-tolerance policy when these allegations affect other Democrats . . . It's made it very difficult for them to explain their past positions on things like Brett Kavanaugh, the Supreme Court Justice, who many Democrats called for to resign or to step aside . . . So Democrats stand the risk of being seen as hypocrites if they don't keep that same standard."

POPPY HARLOW: Complicating things, and really troubling this morning to learn, is that a congressman, that the congressman [Bobby] was told [by Tyson], and his staff acknowledges, and there were emails about this, about the allegations of sexual assault and misconduct by Dr. Tyson--her allegations, a year ago.

OLORUNNIPA: Yeah, one of the defenses that the Lieutenant Governor has put out there is that this is only coming out now that he's about to potentially be elevated to the governor position. But this allegation was actually circulated more than a year ago. Not only to the congressman, but to some reporters. And it's clear that this is not just coming out only because he's potentially about to be elevated. So that sort of strikes at one of the defenses that the lieutenant governor has tried to use.

HARLOW: But just also the responsibility of this Member of Congress and his team.

OLORUNNIPA: Yeah, that's exactly right, and we see his team trying to clean it up now, saying he wasn't aware of the full scope of the allegations, but there is a certain responsibility.

JOHN BERMAN: Look, this is now, an on-the-record accusation with, not contemporeous corroboration, but corroboration before the current political crisis here, if she did go forward, if Dr. Tyson went to Bobby Scott, the congressman, a year ago before this issue came to a head, that really is interesting. And Jackie, again, if Democrats were to hold themselves to the standard they laid out before, there isn't much question about what they would do. I mean, they have set the precedent: with Al Franken at first, and with how they questioned Brett Kavanaugh at first. I mean, they have set that bar high. National Democrats have. 

JACKIE KUCINICH: Talking about Lieutenant Governor Fairfax, the silence has been defeaning from national Democrats. Also it's putting to the test the activist class, who were very vocal during the Brett Kavanaugh hearings. Most of them have been very quiet as these allegations, as they've surfaced. Then yesterday, when you had that agonizing account of what allegedly happened in that hotel room in Boston from the woman who was accusing Fairfax. So it really is putting them in a tough position, and they're going to have to come forward and say something, particularly someone like Kirsten Gillibrand, who was very vocal when it came to Al Franken, and some of these other issues over the last year. 

   The essence of freedom is the proper limitation of government!
