The media’s impact upon society has always interested me. I think the media has enormous power shaping public opinion and they take great pride in that power. There seems to be little doubt that the former reality TV star and businessman Donald Trump knows this too. He seems to have successfully tailored his rhetoric and campaign around it.
Recently, Donald Trump has really profited from claims of a rigged system, and he’s profited from the rigged system itself. I believe that the claims of rigged elections has hurt Senator Cruz who merely read the rules and competed in states like Colorado and Wyoming where Trump chose not to. Instead, Trump turned those losses into big PR victories by playing the victim.
While Trump has received (before yesterday) 37% of the vote from 35 state contests, he has received 48% of the convention delegates. … Continue Reading
All three of them are more supportive of religious freedom for Christians than John Kasich.
For all the talk about the Republican presidential candidate and Ohio governor being a “moderate,” Kasich is an extremist, more akin to President Barack Obama, on religious freedom.
“I think frankly, our churches should not be forced to do anything that’s not consistent with them. But if you’re a cupcake maker and somebody wants a cupcake, make them a cupcake. Let’s not have a big lawsuit or argument over all this stuff — move on. The next thing, you know, they might be saying, if you’re divorced you shouldn’t get a cupcake,” Kasich said at the Feb.… Continue Reading
Ever wonder how Bernie Sanders’ brand of “democratic socialism” differs from socialism in general, which has wreaked havoc all over the world?
The short answer is: only by degree. Progressives of all stripes work to establish “equality” by empowering governments. The difference is their place on the axis of forced egalitarianism.
Like other democratic socialists, the Vermont Democrat rejects communism, National Socialism (Nazis), fascism and other variants as anti-democratic. The democratic socialists insist that they can preserve human liberties while forcing everyone into communal economic arrangements. The key is to have “the people” collectively make all important economic decisions.
I ask: Have you ever been on a small committee? Can you imagine trying to get collective agreement on literally millions of economic decisions made by people every day?… Continue Reading
“Mr. President, there is a reason the American people are fed up with Washington. There is a reason the American people are frustrated. The frustration is not simply mild or passing or ephemeral. It is volcanic.” ~U.S. Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX)
Written by Kathy Valente and David E. Smith
Please set some time aside to watch the video embedded below to hear how U.S. Senator Ted Cruz exposes the Republican controlled House and Senate in Washington D.C. Sen. Cruz explains how so much of President Obama’s Left wing, big government initiatives have gotten through since the Republican landslide victories of 2010 and 2014.
Listen to Sen. Cruz condemn how Planned Parenthood, executive amnesty and the catastrophic Iranian Nuclear Deal got funded under a Republican controlled Congress.
Listen to Sen. Cruz explain why Speaker John Boehner had to resign in disgrace.… Continue Reading
Join fellow conservatives for a dynamic movie night featuring one of the top compelling films that portrays the true story of how America’s institutions have been infiltrated by Progressive activists who seek the overthrow of America’s traditional culture from within. Click HERE to watch the trailer.
In an unsavory desperation move, Mark Kirk-wannabe Robert Dold, who ill-serves the 10th Congressional District in Illinois, has the dubious honor of being the first and so far only Republican to support the anti-liberty, pro-sexual deviance bill dishonestly titled the “Equality” Act.
The pro-homosexual, pro-“transgender” Equality Act poses the gravest threat to religious liberty and speech rights yet concocted by Leftists. If passed it will confer special privileges on people based on their non-objective, deviant erotic feelings and their confused desires to be the opposite sex. This dangerous bill would add the Leftist terms “sexual orientation” and “gender identity” to the federal Civil Rights Act of 1964 and would expand protections beyond those areas to which the Civil Rights Act now applies.
The news on the ground here in Illinois is that in 2016 we’re going to see more of the same. The state party, big Republican Party donors, and the failed political consultant class plans to execute the same losing strategy as they have in past elections. The only change this time will be that more money will be spent than in previous years on all of the tried and true ineffective methods.
If only politics was like sports or business. Coaches of losing sports teams get fired, yet in politics, the most clueless political consultants are among the most highly paid. Lousy professional athletes don’t enjoy long careers, yet most GOP politicians do. If a small business doesn’t make enough profit to cover expenses it eventually shuts down, while your average conservative political activist keeps going and going like the Energizer Bunny with little to show for their efforts.… Continue Reading
