A perfect illustration of the dishonesty that has overcome and distorted our political culture can be found in a recent book by an Emmy Award-winning PBS journalist named Jean Guerrero. Her book Hatemonger is a book length libel against Stephen Miller, one of Trump’s key and most brilliant White House advisers, a classical liberal, whom Guerrero portrays as a “white nationalist” and racist. Guerrero uses me – or rather a gross caricature of me to tar and feather Miller, whose career I helped to advance. In Guerrero’s fevered imagination, I – an “anti-immigrant white nationalist” created Stephen Miller, and through him, “shaped Trump’s  campaign,” and “was its architect as a central strategy of the new Republican Party.” (Hatemonger, p. 78) Like her whole book, this is a brazen invention.

After the riot at the U.S. Capitol, gun control organizations warn that armed rioters at state capitols across the country on Inauguration Day pose a threat to our democracy. They claim the only solution is for states to ban guns on capitol grounds, thus extending their bans on carrying guns on public property generally. Never mind that the small group of rioters didn't use guns at the U.S. Capitol. Never mind that congressmen are allowed to carry in the U.S. Capitol, but not on the legislative floor, where Congress was meeting at the time to count Electoral College votes. If there had been a real threat to legislators, they would have been defenseless. Of course, these same groups and national Democrats raised no concerns about the violent riots that occurred when Trump was inaugurated four years ago. [more...]

For centuries black Americans debated how to overcome racism - but they always emphasized human agency and individual responsibility.
The civil-rights movement, led by the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., helped deliver America from the historic sins of slavery and Jim Crow by forcing the nation to confront the full humanity of its black citizens. King’s words and actions glorified America by transfiguring its racial wound and revealing its redemptive promise. Yet today many black leaders have lost sight of King altogether and are aiding and abetting the crucifixion of their own people. Rather than hope, they see despair; rather than the Easter Sunday of true liberation, they offer the bleak Good Friday of never-ending misery. [more...]

Bestselling author David Horowitz explains to Ed Martin of the Phyllis Schlafly Eagles' podcast Pro America Report that conservatives must fight back against the Left - but not like the Left would. We must take the Trump movement and start acting at the local level, Horowitz argues. Check out this 10-minute podcast episode. [more...]
Are We Entering a Post-Google Age?
It seemed to happen so fast. With barely 24 hours of warning, the Alt-Tech platform Parler was simultaneously kicked off of Google Apps, the Apple Store, and their server Amazon Web Services. In an obvious coordinated effort by Big Tech moguls, Parler – along with its millions of subscribers and users – disappeared from the Internet in a flash. The elimination of Parler (where we had over 60K subscribers!), was but the apex of what's being called "the purge" where, beginning with President Trump's Twitter account, tens of thousands of accounts were deleted and de-platformed in a deliberate effort by Big Tech oligarchs to silence dissent.

How Soon Will Democrats Cancel Martin Luther King Jr. for Calling for a Color-Blind America?
The University of Oregon celebrated Martin Luther King, Jr.'s birthday, but four years ago it came within a hair of canceling him for being politically incorrect on his previous birthday. The offending issue had been King's speech at the Lincoln Memorial, “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character." Putting character ahead of race has long since become unfashionable among a radical leftist movement obsessed with identity politics. [more...]
Tennessee Prison System Accused of Putting Prisoner Rights Groups Before Victims
By Nikki Goeser
Tennessee Department of Correction (TDOC) doesn’t seem to think it’s a criminal offense that a murderer harasses a victim of their crime from their prison system. Despite a Federal judge ruling that there is sufficient evidence for the murderer to face stalking charges, the prison system announced on Tuesday that they are still not willing to seriously review this case. In 2009, a man who was stalking me murdered my husband, Ben, in front of me in the middle of a busy restaurant in Nashville, Tennessee. The murderer, Hank Wise, came up behind Ben and shot him in the head before firing six more rounds into his body in the middle of that busy restaurant. All of this happened in front of security cameras and 50 witnesses. Goeser wrote about her experience in her book, Stalked and Defenseless. She wants to save others from the suffering she endured after gun control laws left her defenseless. Nikki Goeser is the Executive Director of the Crime Prevention Research Center. [more...]
Left-Wing Organizer Charged in U.S. Capitol Riot
The charging of a man associated with Antifa and Black Lives Matter with cheerleading the mob violence at the United States Capitol that disrupted and delayed the recent congressional certification of the presidential election, raises disturbing questions about radical leftist involvement. Does this mean that the civil disturbance on Capitol Hill January 6, executed by people carrying pro-Trump paraphernalia, was some kind of a so-called false flag operation? More investigation is needed but it wouldn’t be the first time Democrats have stirred up crowds in an effort to provoke violence for political purposes. [more...]

3 Big Reasons Liberals are Wrong About Capitol Protests
By Judd Dunning
Context matters. Context is what truly holds the line on matters much greater than the politics of the day. As you will read in 13½ Reasons Why Not to Be a Liberal (and How to Enlighten Others), my new book is all about context. Context is the very soul of truth and facts. It's vital to our political ideology and our nation itself. There are three major contextual truths in relation to the Capitol Hill event that took place on Jan. 6, 2021: [more...]
Get Ready for the Biden Gun Grab
By Andrew Pollack, President of the Crime Prevention Research Center
Democrats now have single-party control of the federal government. President Joe Biden styled himself as the most moderate candidate his party had to offer. And still, during the campaign he promised to put Beto O’Rourke – the man who blurted out “Hell yes, we’re going to take your AR-15s” in charge of his administration’s gun policies. Whether or not President Biden and gun czar Beto aim for a program of national gun confiscation, we should expect some sort of major crackdown against the Second Amendment and against our other liberties. [more...]
Fame and Misfortune
By James Hirsen
The start of the New Year confirmed to many of us that some individuals we thought we knew so well weren't the same folks we thought they were. Many of them appeared to have transformed into a new persona literally overnight, leaving people, who had supported, admired, and trusted them, in a state of disbelief, distress, and overwhelming sadness. The depth of duplicity to which they had sunk shocked us to the core. But it did something else too. It set us on a path to find out how human beings can cause so much hurt, do so much damage, and care so little about what they had done. I would like to offer one explanation, which is based upon my academic background and application of sociological, cultural, and media psychology principles. [more...]
Capitol Riot Spells the End for Trump... But He’s Still a Hero to Many, So Why Not Start a Party of His Own?
President Trump is being vilified for events in Washington on the 6th and his future is unclear. But with a massive base of followers to call on, he can still play a hugely influential role in U.S. politics - if he wants to. Clearly, the word 'tensions' fails to describe the political situation in America. The contested presidential election exacerbated bitter antagonisms between the Trump contingent and 'the resistance,' rending, perhaps irreparably, what had already been a severely frayed social and political fabric. At a rally organized by Women for America First, the Eighty Percent Coalition, and Stop the Steal, President Trump delivered a typically provocative speech before an estimated crowd of 250,000 people. Commentators from the media and both major political parties have been quick to condemn the rebellion, but few have ventured to explain the event. Yet many factors contributed to the rage that fueled the siege. It cannot simply be attributed to Trump’s rhetoric. [more...] Watch Dr. Rectenwald on RT
The Corrupt Media Continues to Divide the Country
Majority of Americans want Trump removed immediately after U.S. Capitol violence. Snap judgements are the stock in-trade of the media and the Left. They are deliberately pushed to manipulate the public into believing that "everyone" agrees with their latest politically motivated idea, in the hopes that "everyone" will. Their tactics advance and elevate collectivism, mob rule (when it's their mob) and dismantle our treasured American tenants like due process and the notion that citizens are innocent until proven guilty. There's also the added bonus of smearing their opponents and further dividing the country. [ more...]
The Democrats will Go on Impeaching Trump Forever
Some suggested that the Trump era would fundamentally redefine the GOP, but it’s the Democrats that are actually remaking themselves as a permanent anti-Trump party. One of the first orders of business in the House was a resolution illegally calling on cabinet members to remove President Trump by using the 25th Amendment. Rep. Pelosi and the resolution’s author, Rep. Jamie Raskin, whom the media is touting as a “constitutional scholar,” know quite well that the amendment, introduced because of Eisenhower’s heart attack and JFK’s assassination, protects the succession in case a president becomes medically disabled. Proposals to have the cabinet use the 25th Amendment to remove a sitting president are sedition. Actually, doing it would be a coup. These terms being falsely thrown around by the Democrats would actually apply under the scenario that they are proposing. [more...]

By Judd Dunning
Context matters. Context is what truly holds the line on matters much greater than the politics of the day. As you will read in 13½ Reasons Why Not to Be a Liberal (and How to Enlighten Others), my new book is all about context. Context is the very soul of truth and facts. It is vital to our political ideology and our nation itself.
There are three major contextual truths in relation to the Capitol Hill event that took place on January 6, 2021:
1) Under American law, bad actors remain subject to law and order regardless of political party or ideology. This is why there were hundreds of arrests during the many leftist riots of 2020. Let us not act too shocked. Escalation had been building for some time. When any rational citizen looks at the 2020 map, it is clear that our world was already white hot. Some Trump supporters did get caught up in the heat of the moment. Yet some of the bad actors were agitators from numerous backgrounds.
2) Trump's reaction and speech upon escalation were appropriate, quick, and straightforward. If you did not listen, you should. His initial speech at the Capitol was not a call to violence. Quite the contrary; his remarks pale in comparison to the overt calls for violence by numerous Democrat officials ranging from Congresswoman Maxine Waters to former Attorney General Eric Holder.
3) More context. "Thank God for COVID's (albeit tragic) destruction to a powerful and thriving American economy, or the left would have never had even a remote shot at winning" could be said by any loyal, result-focused Democrat.
The upcoming January 20th transfer of power is more of an aberration than a normal merit-based transition. Joe Biden won without having to campaign or offer a coherent philosophy. The left deliberately tried to hide their real vision for America. Biden was far from a stellar candidate, and he ran as a centrist who rejected the very leftism his supporters will now eagerly push. We all know the left deliberately gamed the system.
Conservatives run by telling voters exactly who and what they are; leftists run by denying who and what they are until after they get elected. This constant dishonest bait and switch breeds resentment among voters who just want a better life, not a revolution. Americans are tired of being lied to by people who use big media and big tech to bully, harass, cancel, and censor them out of existence. Years of being demonized take their toll. This is not an excuse for violence of any kind, but it is an explanation.
Let us see if those who are taking power can act nobly and humbly. Let us see if they recognize their great fortune that they only won due to a global medical tragedy and massive loss rather than simple, honest merit. Moreover, let us see how "great" these people can actually be for America. Our standard is much higher after Trump's successful policies including over 380 notable achievements. It will not end well for liberals unless the Democrat Party has a massive rebirth of truth and a refined, clarified, open honest agenda. If not, we will all watch as power shifts radically and quickly back to the right again in two years in a massive midterm reversal. Republican expectations are high for winning "bigly" in the 2022 mid-term elections.
Let us also see how Democrats handle personal freedom and recovery now that three protocols and three vaccines are already here. I am an American first and a conservative second, so now here is my charge: "Blow me away with great individual liberty-centered, smaller government American governance." History is a harsh master of truth and holder of actual performance. We stand ready to see how Democrats now hold the line.
American life will settle down soon enough. America, as she does, will sustain. The rolls in the federal registry (where our laws reside) will be enlarged again with new laws under the highly regulatory hand of the left. The rolls will then contract again under the hands of a deregulatory right in the next reversal of power.
January 20th is just around the corner. Hopefully, any transgressions of the law that have transpired are dealt with aggressively. That is beyond any party. Law is key in any civil society. All violent protesters from Black Lives Matter to Antifa to right-wing bad actors must develop peaceful means of protest or be subject to the long arm of the law.
My book, 13½ Reasons Why Not to Be a Liberal goes beyond the 2021 inauguration, but it incorporates it as well as the riots that have led to America’s current fractious divisions. Administrations come and go, but ideas are what stand the test of time. The current leftist riots and the right-wing debate over how to respond are new. The motivations behind the leftist riots are as old as politics itself. Riots are just a means to an end. The leftist end is the overthrow of the American capitalist system. The conservative goal is to preserve the system that has lifted more people out of poverty than any other system in world history.
The events of January 6, 2021 are one flashpoint. They pale in scope, size and significance to the events of the past several years engineered by the left. Leftist riots are the norm. Conservative riots are a statistical aberration. It is up to conservatives to effectively guard against the left switching the reality of these two facts. 13½ Reasons is about effectively communicating truths to counter the false narratives that threaten our constitutional republic.

Our Health Officials Have Literally Lied to Us in Order to Kill Us
By Andrew Pollack, President of the Crime Prevention Research Center
Anthony Fauci is a liar. We know this because he has told us so. Fauci told us that masks don’t work. His exact words were: “there’s no reason to be walking around with a mask.” Then he told us that everyone should wear masks. He then explained that he was lying when he said we shouldn’t, apparently in order to preserve masks for medical professionals. Fauci told us that to get to herd immunity, maybe 60 percent of Americans would need to be vaccinated. Then he told us that nearly 90 percent would need to take the vaccine. He then explained that he really thought 90 percent the whole time but was lying to the American people earlier based on what he thought they could handle. Despite these lies, Fauci remains a sort of cultic hero figure to millions of American liberals. Some people, I guess, don’t mind being lied to as long as it’s being done for their own good.

After Killing Her Husband, Inmate Sends Love Letters to Tennessee Woman, Feds Say
Twelve years ago, Nikki Goeser watched helplessly as a stalker murdered her husband in cold blood. Tragically, at the time, she was a concealed carry permit holder, but state law forbade her from bringing her firearm into the restaurant where her husband was killed. “It changed my life totally,” Goeser said. A man convicted of murder and imprisoned in Tennessee spent years penning love letters and hand-drawn holiday cards to his victim's widow, prosecutors said. She didn't know him, other than as her husband's alleged killer - nor did she know about the overtures. Now Hank Wise, 55, is charged with stalking and faces an additional five years tacked on to his sentence if he's found guilty, the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Middle District of Tennessee said Tuesday in a news release. Goeser wrote about her experience in her book, Stalked and Defenseless. She wants to save others from the suffering she endured after gun control laws left her defenseless. Nikki Goeser is the Executive Director of the Crime Prevention Research Center. [more...]
'The Great Reset' is Huxley's 'Brave New World'
By James Hirsen
Klaus Schwab, founder and executive chairman of the WEF, recently wrote an article titled "2021 should be year of the 'Great Reset.'" In the article, Schwab proposed that 2021 be designated as the new "Year Zero." Eerily, the model that the Davos elites are proposing is strikingly similar to the one that Huxley previewed for us all. One word, albeit unspoken, hangs over all of the cunningly crafted phrases that describe The Great Reset. That word is control. The final outcome that promoters of The Great Reset envision is one of a highly regulated society, a massively intrusive government, the annihilation of individual liberties, and a centrally planned economy. [more...]
The Great Reset Pt. III - Capitalism with Chinese Characteristics
The title of this essay represents a play on the Chinese Communist Party’s description of its economy. Several decades ago, when China’s growing reliance on the for-profit sectors of its economy could no longer be credibly denied by the CCP, its leadership approved the slogan “socialism with Chinese characteristics” to describe the Chinese economic system. Formulated by Deng Xiaoping, the phrase became an essential component the CCP’s attempt to rationalize Chinese capitalist development under a socialist-communist political system. [more...]
Historic January 2021
I have continued to ponder why any conservative would call for Trump to concede at precisely the most important moment in his stunning tenure thus far. This will be the decisive moment and they're bailing? Is it because these politicians and pundits don't see or agree with the "do or die" situation we are in? I wonder if those with the most political experience have the hardest time recognizing a completely unique situation because that experience clouds their judgement rather than informs it. This alone doesn't make me correct, but it does seem to be a major dividing line among people of good will. I believe this is the "do or die" moment. Communists will either strike the final blow to America, or Donald Trump against all odds, will save our country and by extension, the free world from tyranny. [more...]
China Ascends as Xi's Lackey Enters the White House

January 2021 could be a transformative and terrible moment in humankind's history. In the 20th century, the United States was the dominant power on Earth.
