Liberalism is an ideology.  Conservatism is a way of life.  The first one believes that government is owner and distributor of freedom and rights, while the other maintains that government exists to protect the rights and freedoms Man is born with.
One of my father’s best known witticisms was, “Some people are like the old prospector’s mule…you have to hit ‘em between the eyes with a two-by-four to get their attention.”  He was not wrong.  The past two decades have exposed far too many “low-information” voters who elected incompetent leftist politicians. 
All across our nation a quiet rage is building against the liberal assault upon American values.  More so than ever in the history of America, the concerns and patience of its people are being tested, tried and attacked by a group of elitists that is Hell-bent on the destruction of this country.  Voters can make a difference by adequately researching political candidates before casting their ballots. 
I want you to be resilient enough to protect your rights and resist tyranny.  America is calling, and we citizens must band together and fight or we lose our country to illegals, terrorists and Liberals.
Refuse to remain silent!  Question boldly, hold to the truth and speak without fear!  The only rights you have in this world are the ones you are willing to fight for.  But you are not alone.
  

"Liberalism is an ideology. Conservatism is a way of life. The difference between modern Liberalism and Conservatism is the first one believes that government is owner and distributor of freedom and rights, while the other maintains that government exists to protect the rights and freedoms Man is born with."

**CRITICAL THINKING**
   
Why do liberals defend evil?  {Part 1}

Such a mindset is referred to as Epistemological or Cognitive Relativism.  It rejects the notion of any real truth, so the whole idea of standards being better than something else is just relative.  Who are we to say what is true or false, what is good or bad?
 
Such thinking protects liberalism from things that could be considered absolutist, like facts. 
 
{On the old Hannity & Colmes television program, liberal Alan Colmes once said, after being soundly thrashed in a debate, “Well, you have YOUR facts and I have MINE!”} 
 
Shakespeare gave these words to Hamlet when he was pretending to be insane:   “There is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so!”  Moral relativism isn’t just crazy; it’s fake crazy, because no one’s really crazy enough to believe it.
 
Former Supreme Court Justice Oliver Wendell Homes commented, “The best test of truth is the power of thought to get itself accepted in the competition of the market.”  Something widely accepted as truth doesn’t make it true, it only makes it popular. Liberalism believes something being accepted makes it true. 
 
{In the movie, Shooter, the evil, corrupt senator who orchestrates all the subterfuge against the hero tells his underlings, “The truth is what I say it is!”}
 
Liberalism believes that truth is what is discovered by reason and science, and the cause of our troubles is ignorance handed down by the falsehoods of superstitious customs and bad institutions to the past.  And by removing them, we can use logic and reason to reach the truth, free of any bias.  But Cognitive Relativism claims that there’s no objective truth at all, and no standards by which anything can truly be judged as right or wrong.  This is a glaring contradiction. 
 
None of the ideas that man has come up with; religion, philosophies, ideologies, forms of government; has succeeded in creating a world free of war, poverty, crime and injustice.

Liberals believe solutions to the problems can only be found in the attempt to be right.  If nobody ever thought he was right, what would people disagree about?  If people didn’t disagree, they wouldn’t fight; if they didn’t fight, they wouldn’t go to war; without war, there would be no poverty; without poverty there’d be no crime; and without crime there’d be no injustice!  This is a utopian vision, and the only thing required to usher it in is the rejection of all fact, reason, evidence, logic, truth, decency and morality.
 
The best way to eliminate rational thought, the best way to eliminate the attempt to be right, is to always work to prove that right isn’t right and to prove that wrong isn’t wrong. What remain are people who can’t differentiate between good and evil, right and wrong, better and worse.
 
Kansas Governor Sam Brownback signed legislation that would outlaw any foreign legal code from being implemented in state courts, specifically targeting Sharia law.  Liberals call this Islamophobia.  It presents social, political, and economic guidelines for how Muslims should live their lives.  Liberals claim that there is nothing inherently violent or anti-American about it. 
 
{Apparently they haven’t seen instances of honor killings, beheadings, stonings, and floggings of people believed to have violated Sharia law.} 
 
Murdering an apostate, someone who converts to another religion from Islam, is legal! Sexual slavery is legal!  Liberals call Sharia law “progressive!”  The population of the United States identifies as 70 percent Christian, one percent Muslim.  Yet, liberal ideology dictates promoting Islam, while bemoaning Christianity. 
 
{Could it be that they fear actions of “the religion of violence” while being comfortable knowing that Christians rarely, if ever, commit Islamic-style atrocities?} 
 
It’s all relative to liberals. Neither religion is better or worse than the other.  Common sense and conventional wisdom are both rejected for no other reason than they’re common and conventional.  The modern liberal is always championing that which is the worst!
 
Cognitive Relativism is not subject to facts.  There is nothing that can disprove it.  No facts, stats, observations or evidence can refute it.  No experiment could prove an ideological belief since an ideologue will reject any argument or experiment that constitutes proof. 
 
{During the union battle for representation of Massachusetts Department of Correction employees in 1990, I showed a copy of the Massachusetts Labor Relations Commission decision to certify the winner and refuse to authorize a new election to one of my coworkers.  It was written on the Commission’s letterhead and signed by three Commissioners.  He read it, handed it back to me and said, “That’s a bunch of bullshit, you made that up!”}

Don't Be A "No-Information Voter!"

Voters in the United States can make a difference by adequately researching political candidates. Electing proven Conservatives is the first step in reversing the damage to our country caused by Liberals. Politicians must also be held accountable for their actions, and ineffective and dishonest lawmakers can and must be replaced either in scheduled elections or by recall provisions. If not, we will consent to our own oppression.

Many ignorant people want to punish individuals like me for accurately promoting the truth. If I’m verifiably correct, I will always speak my mind even if I’m a minority of one. I will defend my rights, and yours, against all enemies, both foreign and Democrat.

I want you to be resilient enough to protect your rights and resist tyranny. America is calling, and we citizens either band together and fight or we lose our country to illegals, terrorists and Liberals.

Chuck Todd Only Cites Polls Suggesting Public Support for Abortion
By Brad Wilmouth, 5/16/2019, MRC Newsbusters
 ​​
On Wednesday's MTP Daily, host Chuck Todd cited two polls suggesting the public was mostly supportive of abortion. By contrast, a couple of days earlier when Steve Kornacki was fill in host for the same show, he was more accurate in admitting that polling can also be found that suggests most Americans oppose abortion.     

As the group discussed the law recently passed in Alabama that makes abortion illegal throughout a pregnancy without making exceptions for rape victims, NBC correspondent Heidi Przybyla argued that the Alabama law would make it easier for Democrats "to paint the Republicans as being the harsh extremists in this situation. And the polling bears that out, too."

Todd jumped in with polling results: "Let me put it on the screen here. From the midterm, we have a few different ways I want to put it up here." He then showed an NBC News exit poll from November 2018 finding that 66 percent indicated they wish to keep the Roe v. Wade decision intact.

But as National Review noted last summer: 
A Pew Research Center poll taken in 2013 found that only 62 percent of respondents were aware that Roe v. Wade dealt with abortion. Seventeen percent thought Roe v. Wade dealt with some other public-policy issue and 20 percent were unfamiliar with the decision. Furthermore, even many who realize Roe v. Wade dealt with abortion fail to understand the full implications of the decision. Many wrongly think that overturning Roe v. Wade would result in national ban on abortion, instead a reversal of Roe would return the issue to the states.

Todd also  displayed a poll from the liberal Public Religion Research Institute -- he wrongly suggested it came from "Pew" -- from September 2018 suggesting that 59 percent of respondents want abortion to be legal in either most or all cases. Todd then commented that "This is not a 50-50 issue."

Could that poll be skewed? PRRI is run by a man named Robert Jones, whose latest book is delighting the left by predicting The End of White Christian America (hailed in blurbs by Joy Reid, Joan Walsh, and Michael Eric Dyson.) 

As usual, MSNBC didn't discuss the other extreme on abortion, as represented by the bill signed by liberal New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo in January, which would allow an abortion at any time in pregnancy without any meaningful restrictions.

By contrast, on Monday's show, as Kornacki moderated a discussion, he recalled:
One thing I always think about this issue when we talk about the politics of it is the polling on this is very hard to pin down. I was looking before the show. I could find a poll, if you're on the pro-choice side, you could point to and say, 'Hey, America is with me.' I can find a poll if you're on the pro-life side, you could do the exact same thing with.

NewsBusters has previously pointed out that, in spite of other polling suggesting most support Roe v. Wade, a Marist poll found an overwhelming majority support regulations on abortion that would require overturning Roe v. Wade to enact.

Kornacki also has a history of debunking the myth often pushed by others on his network and on CNN that 97 percent of Americans support requiring "unversal background checks" to include all gun sales, including private sales by individuals, when, in fact, voters have failed to deliver such a high percentage in any of the three states where ballot initiatives have been held.



"Do not fear the enemy, for your enemy can only take your life. It is far better that you fear the media, for they will take your HONOR. That awful power, the public opinion of a nation, is created in America by a horde of ignorant, self-complacent simpletons who failed at ditching and shoemaking and fetched up in journalism on their way to the poorhouse." ~ Mark Twain



DEMOCRATS UNHINGED!     ​​



OCASIO-CORTEZ: ABORTION BAN IS ABOUT FUNDAMENTALISTS TRYING TO ‘OUTLAW SEX’!
By David Krayden, 5/16/19, The Daily Caller


New York Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said the reason that regulatory abortion legislation is sweeping across the U.S. is becuase “religious fundamentalists are working hard to outlaw sex that falls outside their theology.”

Ocasio-Cortez tweeted the comments Thursday morning in reference to “abortion bans” that she says “aren’t just about controlling women’s bodies. They’re about controlling women’s sexuality. Owning women.”  But then, she suggested banning abortion was part of a larger conspiracy by religious people to ban sex.

Abortion bans aren’t just about controlling women’s bodies.

They’re about controlling women’s sexuality. Owning women.

From limiting birth control to banning comprehensive sex ed, US religious fundamentalists are working hard to outlaw sex that falls outside their theology.

The congresswoman was apparently responding to the news that Republican Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey has signed the state’s near-complete abortion ban into law after Ohio, Georgia and Missouri passed similar “heartbeat” abortion legislation.

Alabama’s “Human Life Protection Act” would effectively ban all abortions in the state — with the exception of those assessed to be necessary “in order to prevent a serious health risk.”

In another Thursday morning tweet, Ocasio-Cortez called banning abortion “a brutal form of oppression,” Opponents of abortion see it as a brutal form of birth control.

✔@AOC
Ultimately, this is about women’s power.

When women are in control of their sexuality, it threatens a core element underpinning right-wing ideology: patriarchy.

It’s a brutal form of oppression to seize control of the 1 essential thing a person should command: their own body.

Similarly, Independent Vermont Sen. and 2020 presidential candidate Bernie Sanders tweeted Wednesday that “abortion is a constitutional right.” No one running for the Democratic presidential nomination has taken a pro-life stance.

California Sen. Kamala Harris tweeted, “I’m sick and tired of these attacks on women’s rights,” and urged her followers to donate to a pro-abortion group. Mayor Pete Buttigieg retweeted a declaration that “abortion is a human right.” New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand announced on Twitter: “Shout it from the rooftops: Reproductive rights are human rights.” Former Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke called Alabama’s virtual abortion ban “dangerous efforts” that he vowed to fight.

The Democratic-controlled House of Representatives has been promoting pro-abortion policies, including an effort to repeal the Hyde Amendment that prohibits most tax-payer funded abortions.
