Socialism’s Rising Popularity
Threatens America’s Future

National Review Online, by Dave Nammo

Original Article

Posted By:danvillebill, 3/20/2017 1:46:37 PM

Headlines about “the end of the republic” litter political commentary across the political landscape. They usually mark the beginning of a discussion of the merits of Donald Trump as president of the United States, but his ascendency is not the leading sign of a collapse of American society. For that, see a recent poll indicating a tectonic shift occurring in the political preferences of U.S. adults. When you consider current trends in cultural norms and widely held beliefs, you will see that we are headed toward the end of the American experiment.

The war is being lost in the colleges and universities.

Many of those looking at socialism as a good example are also likely still on their parents´ health insurance at 25 years old.

If you´re still considered a child up-to 26, then I´d suggest we increase the voting age to 27.

Fifty years of educators preaching the virtues of socialism to a gullible population of students has accomplished its goal: producing an electorate with heads full of mush who want something for nothing.

Indeed, #5. Together with a complicit msm, which was indoctrinated by the same fatally flawed educational system, it will take a long time to purge the system of the indoctrinators and then to bring those young students and citizens into political service. Assuming it won´t be too late, that is.

Where the Senate Stands on Gorsuch
Roll Call, by By Sean McMinn and Bridget Bowman    Original Article
Posted By: danvillebill- 3/29/2017 9:22:31     Post Reply
Though the Senate is under Republican control, Neil Gorsuch, Donald Trump’s nominee for the Supreme Court, still needs to find some support from Democrats to be confirmed. Under current Senate rules, members can force a 60-vote threshold to end debate on Supreme Court nominees. With only 52 Republicans in the chamber, eight Democrats would need to break ranks in order for the body to advance Gorsuch, who would replace Justice Antonin Scalia. Roll Call is keeping track of every senator’s position on the Supreme Court nominee, with special focus on the 13 Democrats who could vote in favor of

The mainstream media, and some officials who should know better, continue to allege North Korea does not yet have capability to deliver on its repeated threats to strike the U.S. with nuclear weapons. False reassurance is given to the American people that North Korea has not “demonstrated” that it can miniaturize a nuclear warhead small enough for missile delivery, or build a reentry vehicle for an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) capable of penetrating the atmosphere to blast a U.S. city. Yet any nation that has built nuclear weapons and long-range missiles, as North Korea has done, can easily overcome the relatively

Tom Cotton Nails It On The AHCA

Sen. Tom Cotton announced today that he will not vote for the American Health Care Act in its present form. He released the following statement: "Despite the proposed amendments, I still cannot support the House health-care bill, nor would it pass the Senate. The amendments improve the Medicaid reforms in the original bill, but do little to address the core problem of Obamacare: rising premiums and deductibles, which are making insurance unaffordable for too many Arkansans. The House should continue its work on this bill. It’s more important to finally get health-care reform right than to get it fast."

Almost a year to the day she announced her last bid for federal office, Nevada Republican Sharron Angle on Tuesday announced a primary challenge to GOP Rep. Mark Amodei in the 2nd District. The 2010 Senate nominee ran for Senate again last year, losing to former Rep. Joe Heck in the GOP primary, 65 to 23 percent. The tea party favorite previously ran for the 2nd District when it was held by now Sen. Dean Heller. “The reality is the President can lead, but he cannot do it alone," Angle said in making her announcement.

Let Bannon Be Bannon!

Posted By: danvillebill- 3/17/2017 9:48:27     Post Reply
I continue to worry about Steve Bannon. I see him in the White House photos, but he never has that sprightly Prince of Darkness gleam in his eye anymore. His governing philosophy is being completely gutted by the mice around him. He seems to have a big influence on Trump speeches but zero influence on recent Trump policies. I’m beginning to fear that he’s spending his days sitting along the wall in the Roosevelt Room morosely playing one of those Risk-style global empire video games on his smartphone.

Key Conservatives Come Around
on GOP Health Plan

Several key Republicans on Friday endorsed the health care overhaul bill crafted by GOP leaders and the White House, saying President Donald Trump had agreed to changes they favored minutes earlier during an Oval Office meeting. With a vote on the so-called American Health Care Act scheduled for this coming Thursday in the House, the news was welcomed by supporters of repealing and replacing the 2010 health care law. Just over a dozen Republican Study Committee members told reporters outside the West Wing that leadership of the conservative caucus is now a “positive yes” after the president signed off on

The latest poll by USA Today and Suffolk University carried some eye-opening numbers about public disapproval of the media´s aggressive attempts to run the country. It found that President Trump has a 47% approval rating and that 44% disapprove of him. That´s not surprising. The media talk about his unpopularity all the time. But here´s what they don´t talk about: their own numbers. Only 37% of Americans have a favorable opinion of their job performance. A whopping 50% have an unfavorable opinion.

Most Americans are worried about our domestic crises. Obama left office after doubling the debt to $20 trillion. Near-zero interest rates over eight years have impoverished an entire generation of seniors — and yet remain key to servicing the costs of such reckless borrowing. Over the last eight years, GDP never grew at 3 percent annually, the first time we’ve seen such low growth since the Hoover administration. Obamacare spiked health-care premiums and deductibles while restricting access and reducing patient choices.

Today’s Political Polarization

Polarize” is a funny word. I hear it all the time, including from my own mouth. The country is polarized. The parties are polarized. President Trump is polarizing. I think that’s true, but I don’t think the word means what people think it means. First, let’s go to the dictionary. Merriam-Webster offers three definitions, the first two scientific and then this: “to break up into opposing factions or groupings, (e.g.) a campaign that polarized the electorate.” That looks right to me. But when people hear the word “polarized,” they think it means something like “the maximum distance” apart from each

In Monday’s Morning Jolt, Jim Geraghty usefully outlined some intriguing statements made by former Obama national intelligence director James Clapper regarding the FISA surveillance controversy. Clapper’s remarks, in an interview by NBC’s Chuck Todd on Meet the Press on Sunday, are being taken as a blanket denial of the allegations that the Obama administration used the Justice Department and FBI to investigate Trump-campaign figures, potentially including Trump himself.

Trump Pushes GOP Health Care Bill

The unstoppable force of Republican promises to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act ran headfirst Tuesday into the immovable object that is conservative objections to key tenets of the legislation. Which side gives ground in the coming days could determine whether the GOP succeeds in its long-standing goal to overhaul the health care system. The stalemate, one day after Republicans released their long-awaited plan, quickly put the future of the legislation on shaky ground. Speaker Paul Ryan guaranteed his party would have the votes to pass the plan, while conservative lawmakers insisted that they have the votes in both the

More than 108,000 people have signed a petition urging First Lady Melania Trump to move to the White House or pay for security costs at Trump Tower herself. The Change.org petition was started after a senior White House aide indicated the president’s wife and son, Barron, will remain in New York until the school year ends. It’ll be delivered to Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders and Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren if at least 150,000 people sign. (Snip) Comments beneath the Change.org petition highlighted the signers’ dissatisfaction over the first family’s use of taxpayer funds. “Living in the White House is what you

He maintains a dignified silence when nudged for his view of Donald Trump. But President George W. Bush apparently dropped his diplomacy at the billionaire´s inauguration. New York Magazine reports that after The Donald finished his speech, which was peppered with surprises including ´American carnage´, Bush made no effort to hide what he thought of it. ´That was some weird s***,´ he said, according to three separate sources who heard him. The uninhibited reaction is a far cry from the reluctance Bush showed to tear in to the president earlier this year during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel. He dodged the comedian´s repeated attempts to

A spirited Hillary Clinton took on the Trump administration Tuesday in one of her first public speeches since she lost the presidential election, criticizing Donald Trump and his spokesman Sean Spicer on everything from health care to their treatment of women. Cracking jokes about her November defeat and her months out of the limelight since, Clinton spoke to thousands of businesswomen in San Francisco, joking there was no place she´d rather be, ´other than the White House.´ Without mentioning President Donald Trump by name, Clinton faulted the Republican presidential administration repeatedly, including calling its representation of women in top jobs

Jeb Bush said while he believes President Trump has made some good decisions since taking office, the former Florida governor thinks Trump´s statements on Twitter are a huge distraction. "He hasn´t shifted to being president in the way that people are used to, and I think that´s the problem," Bush said in an interview with CBS Miami, taped before the House pulled a bill to repeal Obamacare. Trump´s former rival for the Republican nomination was clear that some of Trump´s statements, such as claiming President Barack Obama wiretapped him, are not productive.

Rachel Dolezal, the white woman who made national headlines in 2015 after she pretended to be black, is back in the spotlight thanks to a new memoir titled In Full Color: Finding My Place in a Black and White World. In the book, which will be released on March 28, the former Washington NAACP leader doesn’t walk back on her claims that she self-identifies as a black woman, saying that living her life as a black person made her life “infinitely better,” although it did make her feel more “distant and isolated” from white people as she started to embrace

Sen. John McCain called on House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes to explain his decision to brief President Donald Trump on possible “unmasking” of Trump transition officials, suggesting that Nunes has undermined the credibility of the panel by not first communicating with fellow committee members. “I think there needs to be a lot of explaining to do,” McCain said Tuesday on "CBS This Morning." “I’ve been around for quite a while, and I’ve never heard of any such thing. Obviously, on a committee like an intelligence committee, you’ve got to have bipartisanship; otherwise, the committee loses credibility. And there’s so

Missouri State University sponsored an hour-long event last week dedicated to the various ways fringe feminist activists can misspell the word “woman.” The event, entitled “Womyn, Wymen,” was held in the taxpayer-funded school’s Multicultural Resource Center Annex, reports The Standard, Missouri State’s newspaper. Yvania Garcia-Pusateri, the executive director of Missouri State’s five-employee Multicultural Programs staff, led the event. Garcia-Pusateri kicked off by asking attendees — all of them female — to announce the gender pronouns they prefer. “We introduce our gender pronouns as a way to normalize gender identity,” she explained, according to The Standard. “It’s not always the traditional

This is stunningly interesting and hopefully will be picked up by MSM and congressional investigators. Sometimes when a person is deep inside an echo-chamber of like-minded ideologues, they might not realize what they’re saying is rather revealing to those on the outside. That’s the set up for former Obama administration official Evelyn Farkas (Deputy Asst. Secretary of Defense) appearing on MSNBC and admitting first hand knowledge the Obama administration spied on candidate and president-elect Donald Trump’s transition team to gather “intelligence” for political use.

On Tuesday’s broadcast of NBC’s “Today,” Senator Lindsey Graham criticized House Intelligence Committee Chairman Representative Devin Nunes (R-CA) for conducting “sort of an Inspector Clouseau investigation here,” and putting “his objectivity in question, at the very least.” Graham said that he thinks Nunes “put his objectivity in question, at the very least.” He added that Nunes should share the information he was given that suggested improper conduct regarding the Trump transition team with others on the committee, and if he doesn’t do that, “then I think he’s lost his ability to lead.” Graham also criticized Democrats on the committee for
