Totalitolerance Unleashed

Tolerance

Written by Robert Knight

Ever notice how threats of force invariably follow the Left’s pleas for “tolerance?”

Let’s call this criminalization of dissent “totalitolerance.”  This term has been around since at least 2013, but it deserves wider circulation, given the ferocity and frequency of progressive attacks on free speech.

In California, Attorney General Kamala Harris demanded the names of donors to conservative nonprofits in order to expose them to the kind of harassment endured by supporters of the Prop 8 marriage amendment referendum in 2008. … Continue Reading

Tom Pauken, former chairman of the Republican Party of Texas, predicts that Donald Trump will go the GOP convention with “a lot of votes,” but Pauken is unsure it will be enough to “lock up” the nomination.

“I still believe that you’re going to see an alternative to Trump,” he tells OneNewsNow.

Trump, 69, is still enjoying a comfortable lead in the crowded field of GOP candidates. RealClearPolitics shows Trump with a 12-point lead in an “RCP average” of six polls.… Continue Reading

The National Organization for Marriage (NOM) has made public the presidential candidates who signed their “Marriage Pledge,” which promises to support a Constitutional amendment defining marriage as between one man and one woman.

Four of the 17 Republican presidential hopefuls signed the pro-marriage, pro-child, and pro-family document:  Texas U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, former Pennsylvania U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, and retired neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson put their signatures to the pledge.… Continue Reading

What GOP Candidates Said About Supreme Court’s Gay Marriage Ruling

GOP CandidatesSantorum, Huckabee, Cruz, Jindal make the A Team

 

Written by Maggie Gallagher
On June 26, a narrow majority of U.S. Supreme Court justices struck down the traditional definition of marriage, ruling all 50 states must recognize same-sex unions as marriages.

The four dissenters included the usually mild-mannered Chief Justice John Roberts, who called the majority opinion “dangerous to the rule of law”: “The majority’s decision is an act of will, not legal judgment. The right it announces has no basis in the Constitution or this Court’s precedent.”

Chief Justice Roberts also underscored the “serious questions about religious liberty” the decision raises: “Indeed, the Solicitor General candidly acknowledged that the tax exemptions of some religious institutions would be in question if they opposed same-sex marriage.… Continue Reading

Written by Samuel Smith

Republican presidential candidate and retired pediatric neurosurgeon Ben Carson was asked in a Tuesday CBS News interview to clarify whether he opposes abortion in the cases of rape, incest and when the mother’s life is in danger. The argument that abortion is justified when the mother’s life is at risk is misleading, he answered.… Continue Reading

RINO Report on Scott Walker

Written by Robert Moon

RINO = Republican in Name Only

When Republicans un-apologetically embrace conservatism with the time-proven Reagan-Bush Sr. approach, they win by landslides. It happens every time. When they “reach across the aisle” and vote like Democrats on issue-after-issue with the failed Dole-McCain-Romney approach, our right-of-center electorate doesn’t show up and they always lose.

The following is a list of Scott Walker‘s liberal RINO policy positions and red flags from his background:

-In March of this year, he endorsed amnesty for illegal immigrants behind closed doors at a private GOP dinner, after reversing his position for the primaries.… Continue Reading

Written by Chad Groening

A conservative political pundit believes Scott Walker must win the Iowa caucuses next year if he has any chance to win the 2016 GOP presidential nomination.

After months of speculation, the Wisconsin governor made it official on Monday, announcing he is a candidate for 2016 Republican presidential nomination. David Bozell, president of the politically active not-for-profit ForAmerica, describes Walker as “living proof that conservatism works if you’re willing to fight for it.”

“Walker doesn’t back down, unlike the GOP leadership in Washington he’s never intimidated and, because of that, he gets results that benefit the people who elected him,” adds Bozell.… Continue Reading

Scott Walker’s Wife: One More Reason For SoCons To Worry?

Walker

Written by Matt K. Lewis

Behind every great man, there’s an incredibly astonished woman. And if you’re a Republican politician, the odds are pretty good she’s not on board with everything in your agenda. Along those lines, social conservatives have a new reason to worry about Scott Walker: Tonette Walker.

In an interview with the Washington Post, Wisconsin’s first lady publicly distanced herself from her husband over the issue of gay marriage. What is more, it’s clear that Scott Walker’s views are out of step with his entire family on the issue.… Continue Reading

Five Reasons Why Republicans Won’t Nominate Jeb Bush

?????????

Written by Aaron Goldstein

Yesterday officially marked the entry of Jeb Bush into the 2016 Republican presidential race. Although the former Florida governor has instant name recognition and vast resources, they will not be enough for Republicans to pick him as their nominee for the White House. I believe this to be so for the following five reasons.

1. Illegal Immigration is Act of Love

At a town hall meeting in April 2014, Bush told Shannon Beam of the Fox News Channel the following about illegal immigration, “Yes, they broke the law, but it’s not a felony.… Continue Reading

Scott Walker Says It’s Time GOP Concedes Defeat on ‘Gay’ Marriage

Walker

Written by Aaron Rupar

During an appearance yesterday on Meet the Press, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker said he thinks it’s time his party concedes defeat and moves past the marriage equality issue.

Walker’s remarks come on the heels of the release of new nationwide polling showing that 51 percent of Republicans under the age of 30 support marriage equality at the state level. As Mother Jones reports, according to the polling, “the only major demographic that still opposes same-sex marriage is white, evangelical Christians.”

Think Progress puts Walker’s Meet the Press remarks in context:

DAVID GREGORY: Are younger conservatives more apt to see marriage equality as something that is, you know, what they believe, that is basic rather than as a disqualifying issue?
