Rumors of Conservatism´s Demise
Greatly Exaggerated

Cybercast News Service, by David Limbaugh

Original Article

Posted By:M2, 2/23/2018 9:52:59 AM

I happened onto a piece by Bill Kristol in The Weekly Standard, wherein he links to "a short, powerful piece in National Review" by Rick Brookhiser, who "concludes that ´the conservative movement is no more. Its destroyers are Donald Trump and his admirers.´" I somewhat get the sentiment — or at least I used to — because during the GOP primaries, I fleetingly entertained a similar concern that Trump, whom I didn´t consider a conservative, might undermine the conservative movement in the long run if elected.

Comments:
The Left is organized, in case anyone wondered what Valerie and The Obamas are doing these days. The Right needs to get organized as well, only bigger.

This isn´t simply a matter of whether a particular political force still exists within the framework of our constitutional republic but rather the very survival of that republic. In the 50´s conservatism was a subsection of American politics. Now, any semblance of adherence to the constitution and the rule of law built upon it, has become "conservative", "far right" "extremist."

We have ceased disputing how to run the republic and have engaged in a struggle between totalitarianism and our precious republic.

I regret that Brookhiser cannot regard me without scorn. Who is he again?

Sadly, I believe that "true conservatism" is probably dead as a political force, at least in national elections. Too many poorly (i.e. public school)-educated, government-dependent, low-info, tax sponge voters, with more and more on the way.

Which makes Trump hatred among the "best and brightest conservatives" so ironic. Trump has done more to advance conservatism and conservative policies than anybody since Reagan. Plus, in the process he´s taken out the Bush, Clinton and Obama families. He deserves Rushmore for that accomplishment alone.

Limbaugh and the rest need to get it through their heads that Trump has never ever claimed to BE conservative. What he does rightfully lay claim to is holding of conservative IDEAS. Maybe David should get his brother Rush to explain it to him sometime. There is a big difference there, and Rush understands it.

The competition in the 2016 election all claimed to be conservative, however they all held liberal ideas, and they were obviously playing to their donors. Voters all saw through that malarkey. Trump was the only one who was honest, and who had the IDEAS that we the voters have wanted taken care of for the past 30 years.

Trump is our Steel Fist, and we have aimed him at the Swamp and DC. They aren´t a happy bunch about that either.

Rush has repeatedly made it quite clear Trump is not a conservative. He is his own person, with his own ideas. Some we will like, some we will not.

The left wing, abortion-on-demand NARAL Pro-Choice America is spearheading a protest it says will take place in all 50 states on Aug. 26 to oppose President Donald Trump’s pick to be the next Supreme Court Justice, Judge Brett Kavanaugh of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit. The so-called “Stand for Justice” rallies are planned to take place on “Women’s Equality Day.” The groups joining NARAL to promote the event are the usual leftists who believe a Justice Kavanaugh would “punish women” if the Supreme Court took up a review of the 1973 Roe v.

Netflix shares dive as subscriber

Netflix shares plunged Monday after the leading streaming television service said subscriber growth fell short of expectations in the recently ended quarter. Membership in the quarter grew 5.2 million to a total of 130 million, matching the same period last year but a million shy of what Netflix had forecast, according to a letter released along with earnings figures. Netflix shares dropped 14.11 percent to $343.97 in after-market trade, in a setback to the television juggernaut operating in some 190 markets around the world. "We had a strong but not stellar Q2 (second quarter)," Netflix said in a letter to

Donald Trump goes to Europe, scandalizes the Euroweenies, libs, and cruise-shilling grifters of Never Trump, and comes back victorious. He’s about to get his second SCOTUS justice confirmed – all they have on Brett Kavanaugh is that he likes beer and is named “Brett.” In Congress, the Democrats decided to go all in on abolishing ICE because Americans love open borders and welcome MS-13 or something. In the Mueller farce, the Dems decided that the smart play was to publicly run interference for creepy weirdo Peter Strzok when he went on national TV doing his impression of Lotion Boy from

I’m going to miss Lord & Taylor like mad when the Fifth Avenue flagship closes next year. It isn’t only because of the unlikely bargains I scored on its often-deserted men’s floors — a red vinyl Perry Ellis-label jacket, marked down from $79.95 to $39.95 that strangers hilariously mistake for Armani, and a wool winter coat as good as any for $49.99. I won’t miss the once-charming but more recently cheap-looking holiday windows that weren’t worth waiting on line for. But Lord & Taylor, like every big department store, offered a welcoming civility that softened the city’s rough edges. New

President Donald Trump is beginning his first trip to England as president. The trip has been mired in controversy over the cooling of relations between President Trump and English Prime Minister Theresa May. However, as the Trump presidential limousine pulled into Blenheim Palace in Woodstock, England, the reception could not have been warmer. The president and prime minister shook hands, but all eyes were on Melania. The first lady stepped out of the vehicle looking very much like a Disney princess. She wore a golden floor length gown. According to the White House pool, “FLOTUS was wearing a yellow floor

Hollywood Balks At Brett Kavanaugh

No one is more upset about Trump´s second Supreme Court nomination than the liberal media ... unless it´s the entertainment elites in Hollywood and Manhattan. These liberals couldn´t see the flagrant hypocrisy surrounding their sentences as they unloaded their fear and loathing on television and Twitter. For example, notice the white male late-night comedians mocking Trump for naming a white male to the court. On ABC, Jimmy Kimmel joked Trump "narrowed his candidates down to three — but, in the end, Kavanaugh was the white man for the job." Stephen Colbert pulled a Bingo card from his pocket on CBS. "I

Judges Revive Catch-and-Release

Administration officials are releasing thousands of migrants with young children into the United States, as required by judges, marking the return of catch-and-release policies for migrants with children. Migrants with children are being released with ankle monitors so they can be tracked by border officials. Officials admitted that the ankle-monitors do little to help enforcement officers find and repatriate the vast majority of the migrants who lose their asylum pleas, and that a large percentage of the first set of migrants’ children are not being reunified by their parents because of concerns about criminal activity. Also, some of those released parents reportedly

Rep. Black Introduces ‘Zero-Tolerance’

On July 10, Rep. Diane Black (R-Tenn.) introduced the Zero Tolerance for Illegal Entry Act, which would make it a felony to cross the U.S border illegally and would mandate an E-Verify system for American employers to ensure that they are not hiring illegal immigrants. The law would make illegally crossing the border for the first time a felony instead of a misdemeanor and would up the penalty from six months or less to a year and a day or more. (The full text of Section 275 as it currently stands can be found here.) The proposed law would also mandate the

U.S. President Donald J. Trump has told press at the NATO summit on Thursday that he warned the defence union that “immigration is taking over Europe”. “I told them today that the EU better be careful because immigration is taking over Europe and I said that loud and clear,” President Trump told a press conference in Brussels, Belgium. “You see what’s going on throughout the world with immigration. I probably — if not partially — won an election because of immigration,” President Trump said, observing that the issue of mass, uncontrolled migration is inspiring voters in Europe — and the United States

Reuters contended on Wednesday that Chinese media coverage of the trade dispute with America has been relatively muted, and it was by design because the government has instructed its media outlets not to say anything that would enrage U.S. President Donald Trump. The claim was sourced to “several sources with knowledge of the matter” who claimed to have seen a “memo based on a set of directives issued verbally by government officials.” “When exposing and criticizing American words and actions, be careful not to link it to Trump and instead to aim it at the U.S. government,” Chinese state media organs were

New reports suggest that social justice haven Oberlin College is facing a myriad of financial issues. Oberlin College in Ohio is notorious for its over-emphasis on social justice politics. It’s the alma mater of social justice icon Lena Dunham, who once published an art video that celebrated the “extinction of white men.” In 2015, Oberlin students accused their school of “cultural appropriation” over accuracy issues with certain cultural dishes that were offered in the dining hall. In December 2017, a local business claimed that Oberlin administrators slandered them by calling them racist for prosecuting alleged shoplifters. Now, Oberlin College is facing “negative”

Judge Brett Kavanaugh is going into the Supreme Court confirmation process with a hail of rhetorical arrows zinging by him, including a phony letter-writing campaign aimed at unsuspecting American newspaper editors. At least 21 papers were duped last week, including big-market brands like the Dallas Morning News and The Washington Times. They ran identical letters over a four-day period, each signed by a different person. The effort is an example of public-relations ´astroturfing,´ a technique meant to simulate genuine grassroots support for an idea or cause.

Democratic Tennessee Rep. Steve Cohen on Monday called for the “military folks” to save America from President Donald Trump after Trump’s much-criticized press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin. “Where are our military folks? The Commander in Chief is in the hands of our enemy!” Cohen wrote on Twitter, using language suggestive of a military coup.

Chicago may soon become the largest municipality in the U.S. to test a universal basic income program. Chicago alderman Ameya Pawar recently proposed legislation that would provide 1,000 families with a $500 monthly stipend -- no questions asked. The bill already has the backing of the majority of city lawmakers, and Pawar hopes to soon work with Mayor Rahm Emanuel to implement the pilot program, The Intercept reported. “Nearly 70 percent of Americans don’t have $1,000 in the bank for an emergency,” Pawar told the outlet. “UBI could be an incredible benefit for people who are working and are having

When Presidents Trump and Vladimir Putin ended their joint press conference in Helsinki, the punditocracy predictably swarmed all over it like ants around a pile of crumbs. Was Trump winking at Putin? Did he really say he believes Putin more than he believes Robert Mueller about whether Russia interfered in the 2016 election? Former Gus Hall enthusiast John Brennan, off his meds again, tweeted that the presser was “treasonous.” Professional chatterer Anderson Cooper said it was “perhaps one of the most disgraceful performances by an American president at a summit.” Every phrase, every gesture of the event will be picked

Whether Democrats realize it or not, the names being tossed as potential 2020 challengers to President Trump are weak. It’s milquetoast. All far too left for the American voter, and all with rigid regional appeal. Who knows who Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) is outside of New Jersey? The same could be said for Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY). Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s (D-MA) doesn’t resonate outside of the Boston suburbs. And Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), well, she’s working hard to boost her profile, but she’s running aground with the Bernie crowd. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) could run again, but his age—and the

A 63-year-old father of 43 children was found beaten to death Sunday afternoon in his home on Chicago´s West Side. The body of John Hearring -- known as Nicholas -- was discovered with head trauma in his upstairs apartment in the 1000-block of North Leamington Avenue in the South Austin neighborhood. Multiple family members confirmed that he had 43 children. Hearring was a long-time resident there and well-known in the neighborhood. "He was the nicest man you´d ever want to meet. I don´t get it. All this killing is so senseless and now they are targeting the elderly," said Gwen Bridgeforth, his daughter-in-law.
