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."


In a time of deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act!"   ~  George Orwell

Leftist Democrats have gone from the crazy sublime to the ridiculously insane.  Is there anything they stand for that aligns with American values?  They've gone all-in on Anti-Semitism; Infanticide; Socialism; Open Borders; Police-State Spying; with more subterfuge waiting in the wings, I imagine!

Voters in Minnesota and Michigan elected radical Islamists as members of the U.S. House of Representatives.  It has been factually reported that these same congresspeople have frequent contact with members of Hamas, a notorious terrorist group whose charter includes the total destruction of Israel, as well as participating in fund-raising for that organization.  Calling them ANTI-SEMITIC is an understatement!

The New York State Senate, Assembly, and Governor Andrew Cuomo spearheaded the creation of legislation allowing for "abortion-on-demand," up to and including termination of a live-born infant; INFANTICIDE!

The new faces of the unhinged Democrat party; Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY), Beto O'Rourke (TX), Ilhan Omar (MN), Rashida Tlaib (MI), and others are carrying the "Crazy Bernie" Sanders torch of SOCIALISM, capturing the attention of a fawning, corrupt, "fake news" media with calls for free healthcare, college tuition, and endless government entitlements!

Every Democrat who can find his or her way to a media microphone are demanding OPEN UNITED STATES BORDERS and unfetterred illegal alien invasions.  They have forgone trying to convince the majority of legal voters to subscribe to their ideology, and have instead engaged in election fraud and welfare bribery in an attempt to create a permanent underclass of DEMOCRAT voters!

Finally, the so-called "Deep State" of entrenched Obama government holdovers and Hillary Clinton lovers orchestrated a "silent coup" aimed at undoing the legitimate election of President Trump.  Acting as a rogue POLICE-STATE SPY organization, corrupt members of the FBI, Department of Justice, the Democrat National Committee, and the Clinton campaign purchased a phony "dossier" from a former British spy alleging collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian operatives to steal the 2016 election.  The Trump-hating malefactors committed crimes against several FISA court judges by submitting the fake "dossier" as evidence to obtain search warrants to spy on the Trump campaign!

The most important aspect to remember concerning this greatest scandal in American political history is that the Democrats, socialists, Marxists, communists, and unhinged leftists do NOT specifically hate President Trump; they hate WE, THE PEOPLE who elected him; Trump is just in the way! 

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.

The Oath Of The Right-Wing Extremist:

“I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America.  And, to the Republic for which it stands:  one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”

Are You KIDDING? WashPost Labels Beto O’Rourke and Joe Biden "Centrists?"
By Scott Whitlock , 3/14/2019, MRC Newsbusters
Do facts matter for The Washington Post?  (apparently not!)

The paper on Wednesday deemed 2020 Democrats Joe Biden and Beto O’Rourke to be “centrist,” despite the fact that both are very liberal.  In a story by Post national political reporter Matt Viser, the headline declared, “Biden, O’Rourke entries would bring centrist twist.”    

The article absurdly pretended:  “While left-leaning candidates have drawn the bulk of the attention so far, the popular former vice president and the charismatic former Texas congressman share one key characteristic:  a more centrist brand of politics that could appeal to an untapped portion of the party electorate.” 

Viser also wrote: 
O’Rourke has distanced himself from Democrats who have offered sweeping liberal policies, and he bristled when asked whether he considered himself progressive, saying he doesn’t know and dislikes labels.

To be clear, there are no measurable stats that would indicate O’Rourke is anything other than a very far-left liberal.  He has an F-grade from the NRA.  The National Right to Life scored him at zero percent on abortion.  In contrast, NARAL Pro-Choice America gave him a perfect 100 percent. O’Rourke has also floated the idea of eliminating Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).  And just on Thursday, he told Iowans that he'd be open to expanding the Supreme Court to add more liberal judges.  So there's that too. 

Just because Viser claims “O’Rourke has distanced himself from Democrats who have offered sweeping liberal policies,” doesn’t make it so.  Tone doesn’t make him a moderate.  His lifetime American Conservative Union (ACU) score is eight.  Not 80.  Eight.

Given that O’Rourke and Biden don’t have actual examples of centrism, Viser resorted to rhetorical flourishes: 

The challenge they present to each other is clear.  Biden’s experience and fluency with policy could make O’Rourke seem insubstantial and shallow.  O’Rourke’s youthful charisma could highlight Biden’s age, making him seem like a disconnected figure past his prime.

Let us now take a look at Biden.  His lifetime ACU score in the Senate is 12.  His 2006, 2007, and 2008 scores are as follows:  4, 0, 0.  That’s pertinent because those years led up to another presidential run (his second).  Biden has an F-grade from the NRA.  In 1987, he led the attacks against conservative Supreme Court nominee Robert Bork. 

Just how, exactly, are either Biden or O’Rourke centrist?  The Post’s motto is that “democracy dies in darkness.”  Apparently facts expire there as well.  (On Thursday, CBS This Morning promoted the same fantasy, calling O’Rourke near the “center.”)

"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


Minnesota Democrat Party Leaders Working To Oust Anti-Semitic Rep. Ilhan Omar!
By Jeff Dunetz, 3/14/19, Conservative Firing Line

Upset at her public anti-Semitic statements, there are Minnesota Democratic Party leaders already working to recruit candidates to run against Rep. Ilhan Omar in next year’s primary election.

The Hill is reporting that several party leaders “have had discussions about finding a candidate to take on Omar, just two months into her first term in Congress.”  It is extremely rare for party leaders to try and primary an incumbent.

“There’s definitely some buzz going around about it, but it’s more a buzz of is anyone talking about finding someone to run against her than it is anyone saying they’re going to run against her or contemplate it.  There’s definitely talk about people wanting someone to run against her,” said state Sen. Ron Latz (D), who represents a portion of Omar’s district.     

Before she ran for Congress, Latz hosted a meeting in his home between Omar and community Jewish leaders.  They weren’t trying to change her anti-Israel positions but to teach her not to use hurtful language when expressing those positions.  Latz reported that they “shared with her our concerns for things, including language that has references and meanings beyond just the meanings of words.  Tropes, dog whistles — call them what you will.  We explained to her how hurtful, and factually inaccurate, they were.”    

Based on her recent comments using the tropes she was advised against using, Rep. Omar doesn’t really care about promoting anti-Semitism, but then again neither does her party.  The Jewish community in her district is horrified.

“Our community is exasperated by Rep. Omar’s unfulfilled promises to listen and learn from Jewish constituents while seemingly simultaneously finding another opportunity to make an anti-Semitic remark and insult our community,” Steve Hunegs, executive director of the Jewish Community Relations Council of Minnesota and the Dakotas, said in a statement.

Omar met with Hunegs last month after her initial remarks received widespread condemnation.  She has continued to meet with Jewish leaders both in Minneapolis and Washington, a spokesman said.

“Unfortunately, having the opportunity to speak with her about that point didn’t dissuade her making that statement,” Hunegs told The Hill in an interview Wednesday.  “We were appalled.”

Keep in mind that before Omar, Minnesota’s 5th Congressional was represented by Keith Ellison, a former friend, and defender of Louis Farrakhan, and featured keynote speaker at many anti-Semitic BDS organization events.  So when push comes to shove the rank and file Democrats in her district may be very comfortable with Omar’s anti-Semitism.

   The essence of freedom is the proper limitation of government!
