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."

**CRITICAL THINKING**
   
Why do liberals defend evil?  {Part 2}

Liberalism accepts and prefers abstract reasoning over practical experience.  Liberals are constantly trying to avoid being proven wrong.
 
Liberals consider it “racist” to insist that immigrants to the United States assimilate. 
 
{As a result of such a controversy in Sweden, it was determined to be discriminatory NOT to allow a Muslim to discriminate against women by refusing to shake hands with a female boss.  The feminists who usually cry “sexism” were nowhere to be found!}
 
Liberals think diversity is a virtue.  Diversity is meaningless, it simply means different. Without critical moral judgment to say, “Yes, it’s different and good,”  a person is not only NOT supporting good, but is quite literally, in a good society, supporting things that are evil, failed, and wrong.
 
If one can’t recognize good, how can one progress towards good?  That’s why liberalism is NOT progressive, despite what liberals believe, because there’s nothing to progress toward!  This forces every single generation to not only “reinvent the wheel” but to re-fight every battle Americans ever fought to make our nation great!
 
The George Orwell “double-think,” which accepts that two mutually contradicting beliefs are correct, is either insanity or evil.  It opens an opportunity for evil to spread in all directions because the Epistemological Relativism may rule that two opposing beliefs can be correct, in a theoretical sense.  It also relates closely with Cultural Relativism, which rules both good and bad behavior as acceptable, depending on the culture.
 
Dictatorships cannot be proven to NOT be good types of governments because who is to say “they’re wrong and we’re right?”  There is no objective truth.
 
Perhaps it can’t be proven that ideals, values and attitudes can be true or false in the same way cognitive assertions can be proven to be true or false, but we can try to understand them, estimate their consequences, correlate them in a way that humans live and understand, then judge their effectiveness and whether it should be weighed as acceptable behavior or not.
 
A man may choose to be an alcoholic.  It can’t be proven whether this is good or bad according to the relativism approach, but people can look at the consequences of that lifestyle and see what results from this plan.  They will see that it has a negative side effect in terms of health, job, family, and so on.  Typically, this is enough to determine whether an alcoholic is acceptable or not. 
 
{Many liberals accept the foolish theory that individuals can become intoxicated by any means, and then just sit in their basements and not harm anyone.} 
 
It’s easy to see that this behavior should not be encouraged or accepted, but to the liberal lifeline, no one could determine if this is good or bad, despite the probable consequences.
 
Liberalism is totally committed to this relativism approach and the belief that there is no such thing as objective truth.  Even if there was, there is no way of knowing how close anyone is getting to it.
 
But this paradox doesn’t bother liberals so much because liberal philosophy can often be contradictory and inconsistent.  These inconsistencies are not only present in the realm of abstract reasoning, but also in its practice in the real world.  The one thing that is consistent about liberalism is that it’s inconsistent.  Liberalism finds itself trapped in a dilemma; either it must give freedoms to those who are not liberals and give them an equal platform, or else it must deny its own principles, discriminate against those that oppose them, and work to censor and restrict, or altogether eliminate certain freedoms!  Liberals pervasively use selective indignation on social issues.
 
There’s a canyon-sized gap in the liberal way of thinking; a glaring weakness in the liberal doctrine; one that liberals have seldom gone near, although they all know its there.
  
  
  

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.

Scarborough Snarls at Voters Who ‘Don’t Care’ About Trump’s ‘Lies!’
By Gregory Price, 5/23/2019, MRC Newsbusters
 ​​
It is no secret that Joe Scarborough has a profound antipathy for President Donald Trump. (And though he is ashamed now, Scarborough was a big Trump fan in 2015 and into 2016.) Thursday on Morning Joe, he put his contempt on full display by attacking Republican voters who have moved on from the Mueller Report's findings and want Congress to end the partisan investigations.

The MSNBC host began a long diatribe in which he oozed contempt for Trump supporters in middle America: “I know that people in middle America, we're told, don’t really care about the fact that the President obstructed justice, and they don't really care about the fact that the President won't turn over his tax returns.”   
   
Essentially, Scarborough complained that voters didn't care about what he thought was important: 

They don’t really care about the fact that we have an Attorney General who commits perjury all the time, who lies all the time, who is actually lying about how the Mueller investigation started and is lying that it had everything to do with the Steele dossier. I mean, we're told that most Americans just don't care about lying. But for Democrats, isn't it important that they be the champion of the belief in a no man is above the law. Let's just strip it down to that. No man is above the law. And, yeah, they're not going to get a bridge in their district to throw away the concept that no man is above the law. 

As if that wasn't enough, he later referred to Trump as a "horse in a hospital" and said that Republicans support Trump making the country weaker:

Donald Trump, as somebody has said, is a horse in a hospital. You open up the doors. You're saying, well, he's shaking things up. Yes. Just like if you put a horse in the hospital. And as John Delaney said, why did you let the horse in the hospital and the answer was, oh, because it was inefficient. Yesterday was the horse racing toward the NICU. And you all can still sit out there wherever you are going Donald Trump shaking things up. Yeah, just like a horse in a hospital. It makes no sense. If you’re supporting Trump for doing nothing, making the country weaker at home and across the world and for actually trying to undermine the basic American value that no man is above the law, then good luck with that.

Scarborough suggested, without evidence, that the administration was hiding the issue of children dying at the border from the American people; he repeated the lie that Attorney General Bill Bar committed perjury before the House Judiciary Committee, something National Review, CNN, The Washington Post, and Salon all agree did not occur. He claimed that President Trump obstructed justice even though the Mueller Report could not conclude that he did so; and he concurred with Nancy Pelosi's unsubstantiated claim that the President engaged in a cover-up, even though the Mueller Report found no underlying crime.

A recent CBS News poll, found that most Americans think Democrats should move on from the investigations and "move to other issues." Scarborough once again shows his utter disconnect from why millions of Americans, especially in the middle of the country, voted for President Trump in the first place.

Morning Joe
5/23/19
6:07 AM ET
MIKA BRZEZINKSI: Yes, I can. I can imagine. This is all what's happening because of exactly what he's done. 

JOE SCARBOROUGH: Well, because he's -- right now he is the least transparent President in the history of the United States. And it's clear he covered up time and time again on both large and small things. Unfortunately, more reports of children dying at the border, of that fact being kept from the American people. More reports of courts overturning the President’s decision to to intentionally obstruct investigations that are being conducted right now by the oversight committee which has a constitutional duty to do just that. This week also yet another court ordering yesterday that Deutsche Bank has to turn over financial records that, again, that not only Donald Trump but his family tried to cover up, tried to obstruct and yet another investigation. For Democrats, they can talk about all the different investigations and I know that people in middle America were told don’t really care about the fact that the President obstructed justice, and they don't really care about the fact that the president won't turn over his tax returns, and they don’t really care about the fact that we have an Attorney General who commits perjury all the time, who lies all the time, who is actually lying about how the Mueller investigation started and is lying that it had everything to do with the Steele dossier. I mean, we're told that most Americans just don't care about lying. But for Democrats, isn't it important that they be the champion of the belief in a no man is above the law. Let's just strip it down to that. No man is above the law. And, yeah, they're not going to get a bridge in their district to throw away the concept that no man is above the law.
...
JOE SCARBOROUGH: In 2016, what did he say? He said I'm a deal maker. I can get things done. Nobody else can get thing done. We’re gonna build a wall and Mexico is gonna pay for it. Believe me. He's proven himself to be ineffective, a liar. He's not a deal maker. He was going to shake-up Washington and bring everyone together, he said it was easy, he couldn’t do it. He said healthcare was easy, he couldn't do it. He said building a wall was easy, he couldn't do it.

MIKA BRZEZINSKI: How about gaffs with Russia, North Korea and now the drum beat of war with Iran. 

JOE SCARBOROUGH: He hasn't done it. Given, lets underline this simple fact. Republicans had a monopoly of power Donald Trump’s first two years in Washington and none of this has gotten done. So people out there that are saying I like Trump because he can get -- no, no. He's not getting anything done. You say he's shaking thing up, yeah, just like putting a horse in a hospital. Donald Trump, as somebody has said is a horse in a hospital. You open up the doors. You're saying, well, he's shaking things up. Yes. Just like if you put a horse in the hospital. And as John Delaney said, why did you let the horse in the hospital and the answer was, oh, because it was inefficient. Yesterday was the horse racing toward the NICU. And you all can still sit out there wherever you are going Donald Trump shaking things up. Yeah, just like a horse in a hospital. It makes no sense. If you’re supporting Trump for doing nothing, making the country weaker at home and across the world and for actually trying to undermine the basic American value that no man is above the law, then good luck with that.



"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



DEMOCRATS UNHINGED!     ​​



MOST DEMOCRATS BELIEVE OCASIO-CORTEZ’S CLAIM THAT SHE SAID ONLY A SEA SPONGE WOULD BELIEVE!
By Molly Prince, 5/22/19, The Daily Caller


More than two-thirds of Democrats believe Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s claim that “the world is going to end in 12 years if we don’t address climate change” despite the congresswoman later saying that “you’d have to have the social intelligence of a sea sponge” to take her literally.

“Millennials and people, you know, Gen Z and all these folks that will come after us are looking up and we’re like: ‘The world is gonna end in 12 years if we don’t address climate change and your biggest issue is how are we gonna pay for it?'” Ocasio-Cortez said during an interview in January.

The freshman congresswoman also doubled down on the claim in April, again warning that there is only 12 years remaining and that “for everyone who wants to make a joke about that, you may laugh, but your grandkids will not.”

Ocasio-Cortez later flipped her position in early May, referring to the 12-year deadline as merely “dry humor + sarcasm” and asserted that those who took her literally “have the social intelligence of a sea sponge.”

This is a technique of the GOP, to take dry humor + sarcasm literally and “fact check” it.

Like the “world ending in 12 years” thing, you’d have to have the social intelligence of a sea sponge to think it’s literal.

But the GOP is basically Dwight from The Office so who knows. https://t.co/pmkwrdeAnq
— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) May 12, 2019

However, a recent poll shows that an overwhelming majority of her own party took her claims literally. Sixty-seven percent of Democrats believe that the U.S. has only 12 years to aggressively fight climate change or else there will be “disastrous and irreparable damage to the country and the world.” Only 48 percent of total likely voters believe the statement.

While conducting the survey, the poll did not identify Ocasio-Cortez or any other politicians who promulgated the 12-year deadline. (RELATED: Liz Cheney Stumps Green New Dealers With One Question: Did You Fly Here?)

Interestingly, at least five of the Democrats seeking the party’s presidential nomination have repeated the talking point, including Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders and California Sen. Kamala Harris.

The Rasmussen Reports poll was conducted between May 20 and 21. It was composed of a sample size of 1,000 likely voters with a 3-point margin of error.

Ocasio-Cortez’s office did not return The Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment.
