Party of Progress
Lets Its Mask Slip

Written by Robert Knight

Things have come to a pretty pass when the most “moderate” Democratic presidential candidate wants to make history by bringing along a “first gentleman” instead of a first lady.

That’s where things stand after the latest Democratic debates, town halls and other glimpses into the bizarre strain in American politics known as progressivism.

The aforementioned “moderate” is Pete Buttigieg, the openly homosexual South Bend, Indiana, mayor whose legal spouse is a man.… Continue Reading

Wealth and Envy: A Wealth Tax Will Make Paupers of Us All

Written by Oliver Perry

In his presidential campaign, U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders issued his own plan to institute a “wealth tax.”

While Warren has touted the tax to fund her agenda, the primary purpose of Sanders’s proposal is to correct what his campaign called the “outrageous level of inequality that exists in America today and to rebuild the disappearing middle class.”[1]

The wealth tax seems to have wide support. A Quinnipiac Poll claims that 60% of those surveyed support a 2% annual wealth tax on the rich.… Continue Reading

Stop Scaring the Children

Written by Stephen Moore

A friend of mine’s third grade daughter came home from school a few weeks ago with tears streaming down her cheeks. “My teacher says we only have 10 years before the oceans rise and we are underwater,” she moaned. “Are we all going to die?”

That’s a heavy burden to place on the shoulders of a 9-year-old.

Gloomy stories of the coming apocalypse have become commonplace in schools, textbooks, churches, movies and even children’s bedtime stories. … Continue Reading

Democrats’ Excessiveness Will Backfire

Written by David Limbaugh

How many times do Democrats get to cry wolf before a rational body politic tells them to go fly a kite? Instead of retreating with tails between their legs over their failed Russia hoax, they’re at it again.

Did any Democrats leading the false charge that President Donald J. Trump colluded with Russia to steal the 2016 election ever apologize for putting the country through this nightmare? Did any of their media water carriers ever backpedal from their anti-Trump sensationalism?… Continue Reading

Denial of Reality Could Become a Democratic Campaign Slogan

Written by Dr. Everett Piper 

On Tuesday, Sept. 24, 2019, U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced a formal impeachment inquiry of President Donald Trump for allegedly asking the Ukrainian president to investigate Joe Biden. U.S. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy responded: “Facts be damned. Democrats are insisting this is their moment to impeach President Trump. Speaker Pelosi’s decree changes nothing.”

And, thus, without even intending it, Mr. McCarthy just stumbled into what will be the campaign slogan for the Democratic Party from now until November 2020.… Continue Reading

What Lenin Said About Christians and Socialism

Written by Dr. Paul G. Kengor

“If someone calls it socialism,” said Rev. William Barber at the August meeting of the Democratic National Committee, “then we must compel them to acknowledge that the Bible must then promote socialism, because Jesus offered free health care to everyone, and he never charged a leper a co-pay.”

Barber’s statement brought secular progressives to their feet in thunderous applause. That included DNC chair Tom Perez, who says that democratic socialists like Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez represent “the future of our party.” That’s a party once headed by men like John F.Continue Reading

Climate Change and the Democrats

Written by R. Emmett Tyrrell Jr.

Climate change is one of those issues that the bien-pensants around the world all agree upon. We must act! If we do not act, people will lose their beach houses. Plants will wither and die. Birds will fall from the sky. Just last week, whole communities in the Caribbean were swept away.

There are, however, problems with eliminating or ameliorating climate change. For one thing, modern technology cannot seem to keep up with people’s ability to dream.… Continue Reading

Democrats Once Again Embrace Population Control to Save the Planet

Written by Stephen Moore

Is the left once again embracing Malthusian population control in order to save the planet?

Of all the preposterous proposals put forward by the Democratic presidential candidates during the CNN climate change town hall meeting last week, the dumbest wasn’t outlawing plastic straws, incandescent light bulbs or air travel. It wasn’t the contention that climate change is the globe’s greatest threat since World War II. It wasn’t even the fantastical hypothesis that hurricanes are racist because they target “communities of color” more than white areas.… Continue Reading

The Real Motives Behind Green New America and its Radical Undertone

Written by Vijay Jayaraj

Do you hold a moderate or neutral opinion on climate? Then get ready to be sidelined or blacklisted as a “denier” or “dangerous person” by the growing number of radicals who believe there should be no room for dissent.

Welcome to the Green New America.

In earlier days, the color Green was largely associated with nature and the abundance of life. In the 20th century, Green became the symbol of the fight against all things that destroys the environment.… Continue Reading

GOP ‘Jihad Squad’ Facebook Post Called “Racist” Political Hate Speech

Written by Timothy Dailey

The Illinois Republican County Chairmen’s Association prompted an outcry from Muslims when it posted a faux movie poster image labeling four Democratic congresswomen as “The Jihad Squad” on its Facebook page.

The post showed the four congresswomen with a tagline that read, “Political jihad is their game. If you don’t agree with their socialist ideology, you’re racist.” U.S. Reps. Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts and Ilhaam Omar of Minnesota are shown holding guns.… Continue Reading
