Wild Leftist Chomsky: GOP ‘The Most Dangerous Organization In World History’

Written by Ben Shapiro

On Monday, linguistics professor-turned-crappy socialist political commentator Noam Chomsky called the Republican Party “the most dangerous organization in world history.” Chomsky continued by explaining why this was no exaggeration:

The last phrase may seem outlandish, even outrageous. But is it? The facts suggest otherwise. The party is dedicated to racing as rapidly as possible to destruction of organized human life. There is no historical precedent for such a stand.

Of course, Chomsky is talking about Trump’s opposition to using the federal government to crack down on the fossil fuel industry in order to curb supposed man-made global warming.… Continue Reading

The Cannibalization of the GOP

Written by Laurie Higgins

At this cultural moment, the GOP is the only party that defends marriage, the intrinsic rights of children (both prenatal and post-natal children), religious liberty, and the physical privacy rights of girls and boys and men and women. But the barbarians have breached the gate and are cannibalizing the GOP while it yet lives. Well-dressed, well-spoken barbarians but barbarians nonetheless.

What accounts for the corruption of the GOP? There are numerous reasons including the childish moral reasoning of lawmakers like U.S.… Continue Reading

‘Far right’ GOP Platform Pleases Conservatives

Written by Billy Davis and Steve Jordahl

A variety of advocates for conservative causes are watching closely as the Republican Party completes a draft of its official party platform.

Platform committee members met Monday and Tuesday in Cleveland to finalize the party’s stance on immigration, military readiness, and other issues that will be put before convention delegates for a final vote.

Many of the debated topics were hot-button social issues, including abortion and traditional marriage.

“Emerging Republican platform goes far to the right,” a headline at the reliably liberal New York Times declared earlier this week.… Continue Reading

Dear Trump Supporters: Hear Me Out Before You Vote

Trump

Dear Trump supporters:

America hears you.

You are angry with the gridlock caused by the petty bickering of professional politicians more interested in being lackeys to lobbyists and other big-money donors than in improving the lives of average wage-earning Americans. Money, jobs and opportunities seem to flow upstream to those who already have everything, rather than downstream to those most in need. Truly, this is how most Americans feel.

The question for this election is: Which candidate will actually do something about it?… Continue Reading

Written by David E. Smith

At a National Press Club event in Washington D.C. on Thrusday, Louisiana Governor and GOP presidential candidate Bobby Jindal took on billionaire and GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump.

Gov. Jindal began his statements saying, “I want to say what everyone is thinking about Donald Trump but is afraid to say.”  Jindal went on to say, “He is shallow, there is no substance. He doesn’t know anything about policy, he has no idea what he is talking about.… Continue Reading

The Question Trump Can’t Answer

Written by Michael Medved

In the GOP debate, Donald Trump said he couldn’t commit to support the ultimate nominee, and refused to rule out a third party run, but he never faced the obvious follow-up question. If he really cares about the conservative principles he now espouses, why wouldn’t he promise to support the Republican nominee?

Does he think that there is any chance that Hillary Clinton would come closer to representing a conservative agenda than any conceivable GOP candidate?… Continue Reading

Trump On Obama In 2009: “I Think He’s Doing A Really Good Job…He’s Totally A Champion”

enhanced-buzz

“Well, I think he’s sort of a guy that just has a wonderful personality,
a good speaker, somebody that people trust.”

Written by Andrew Kaczynski

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump praised President Barack Obama in 2009 in his book Think Like A Champion and on CNN’s Larry King Live.

Trump, who is currently hovering near the top of the Republican field in recent presidential polls, wrote of Obama in his book, “what he has done is amazing.”

Trump added, “the fact that he accomplished what he has—in one year and against great odds—is truly phenomenal.”

Trump also wrote he thought Obama “has the mark of a strong leader” and said Obama’s comments on the economy “have led me to believe that he understands how the economy works on a comprehensive level.”

Here’s the full except, which is in the first chapter of the book:

After the election in November of 2008, I was interviewed by Dominic Carter of New York 1 (who has recently, as of late 2009, gone through a great deal with spousal abuse) on his program called “Inside City Hall.” New York 1 is an all-news program that is popular in New York City, and Dominic has a dynamic television presence.

The Many Ways in Which Donald Trump Was Once a Liberal’s Liberal

rt_donald_trump

Written by Hunter Schwarz

Has Donald Trump ever been wrong about anything? (Also, does he ever cry? Has he ever had self-doubt? Has he ever lay in bed awake at night crippled with anxiety?)

Perhaps no presidential candidate has the self-confidence he does, even in the face of some glaring flip-flops on his political positions. Where lesser candidates would dodge questions about why they’ve changed their mind or give a focus-group-tested line about how they evolved, Trump doesn’t admit to ever having a different opinion.… Continue Reading
