Clarice Feldman – Victor Davis Hanson, writing in American Greatness, surveys how history’s bad ideas inspire the “progressives.” He focuses on the plans for court packing, the resegregation of students in universities, the growing movements to censor speech, restaurants’ decision to refuse service to those whose views they disagree with and local governments’ nullification of laws (sanctuary cities).
The common themes in all these schemes are innate to progressivism. To survive and spread, exalted righteousness always excuses tawdry methods, given the supposed ignorance and gullibility of the unenlightened.
Short-term expediency is well worth the goal of regaining power. Any smell from low tactics later can be perfumed away – once power is back in the correct hands.
Unfortunately for them, it seems not to be working so well this time. The growing #WalkAway movement, in which lifelong Democrats publicly announce they are walking away from the party, shows they supposed wrong about “the ignorance and gullibility of the unenlightened.” Continue reading “Exalted Righteousness, Tawdry Methods Lead to Walk Away”→
Sundance – This is important. This is very important. The collective DOJ, FBI and “allied contractors” activity in 2015 and 2016 is the origin of the political opposition research that developed into the Trump investigation via the FISA application(s). Jordan appears to be one of the few who understand the importance of the timeline.
Conservative Zone – The reality that America is becoming great again under Pres. Donald J. Trump has been an absolute nightmare for Democrats, and another voting demographic is trending Republican.
A recent poll released by Reuters/Ipsos shows that young white Americans who predominately voted Democrat in the 2016 election are switching affiliation at a significant rate. Reuters, one of the few news organization that holds its staff to a standard of impartiality, conducted a three-month poll earlier this year. The survey mirrored one done during the same time frame in 2016 and the numbers have changed significantly.
In 2016, young white Americans backed the Democratic Party at a percentage of 47 to 33. But with Pres. Trump and the Republican economic policies in full swing, the voting interests of this demographic have vastly changed. Approximately 9 percent of white voters between 18 and 34 have shifted their allegiance to the Republican Party.
Young white professionals are graduating from college and technical institutions to find a vibrant jobs market rich with opportunity. Those already in the workforce are discovering robust wage increases and the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act sparked thousands in bonuses as companies enjoy rising tax incentives. The key words for white professionals have been “economic growth.” Continue reading “Democrats Are Losing Yet Another Voting Demographic”→
Congressman Mark Walker, NC – This week, I was honored to spend time with Col. Norm McDaniel and Carol McDaniel of Burlington.
Col. McDaniel was born in Fayetteville and was commissioned a Second Lieutenant in the U. S. Air Force upon receiving his B.S. degree in Mechanical Engineering in June, 1959 from North Carolina A&T State University.
On July, 20, 1966, he and four of his five crew members became POWs when their plane was shot down in Vietnam. As one of over 700 American POWs held by North Vietnam, McDaniel was released on February 12, 1973, as part of Operation Homecoming. During those 6+ years, Carol waited patiently with her family and their two children, Christopher and Crystal. Continue reading “Mark Walker visits Vietnam POW Col. Norm McDaniel”→
