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.

Wealthy Jews are trying to take over the world and they are using the power of celebrity and fame in Hollywood to achieve their nefarious end, a Saudi scholar has claimed. Sheikh Sa’ad ibn Abdullah Al-Humayd, a professor of Hadith Studies at King Saud University in Riyadh, made his accusation while being interviewed on Saudi television. He blamed Jews for implementing the contents of The Protocols of the Elders of Zion by harnessing Hollywood to “target us” and preoccupy the masses with arts, sports and theater via celebrities with Hollywood fixations.

Former FBI Director James Comey has taken to print and the airwaves to angrily denounce President Trump, the man who fired him last year. But voters don’t rate Comey’s FBI performance too highly, and more think he should be legally punished for leaking to the media. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that just 14% of Likely U.S. Voters believe that Comey was a better FBI director than most of those who held the job before him. Thirty-eight percent (38%) say he did a worse job this his predecessors, while nearly as many (35%) rate his job

ABC made a big swing with Sunday´s George Stephanopoulos sitdown with James Comey — and while the interview looks like it scored a win in the 10 o´clock hour, CBS powered broadcast´s evening with the Academy of Country Music Awards. The ABC News interview, Sunday´s second in so many weeks to take aim at the Trump administration after 60 Minutes´ ratings hit interview with Stormy Daniels, averaged 9.8 million viewers and a 2.4 rating in the news demo of adults 25-54 for the network. It was a vast improvement from its American Idol lead-in, building on the lead-in among both

Former FBI Director James Comey told George Stephanopoulos of ABC News in an interview broadcast on Sunday night that he “deeply” respects former President Barack Obama “and his higher loyalty to the values I care a lot about” but that current President Donald Trump is “morally unfit” to be president. When Obama, who Comey believes has a “higher loyalty to the values I care a lot about,” served in the Illinois state legislature, he repeatedly opposed a bill that would have treated babies who survived late-term abortions as “persons” who have the same constitutional rights as any other person.

Trump Effect: engaging in a feud with Donald John Trump increases the chances of something bad happening to you, while he rolls merrily along the way. Starbucks is the latest to learn not to mess with Trump. During the campaign, then-Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz backed Hillary. In September, he said, "I am confident that Hillary Clinton will become the next president of the United States." No problem. Voting for or donating money to Cruella de Vil does not get you in trouble. This does. "The world is screwed up. People are unsettled. There is a tremendous amount of pressure and

Sunday on ABC’s “This Week,” White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders used a question about Rep. Adam Schiff’s (D-CA) criticism that President Donald Trump’s pardon of Scooter Libby sent a message to those indicted in the Russia probe to attack former FBI Director James Comey. “That couldn’t be further from the truth. Once again Adam Schiff rarely bases any comments in reality,” she said. “Talk about a grandstander. He probably is hook, line and sinker buddies with James Comey. They both have never found a TV camera they don’t love to be in front of. ”

Sen. Cory Booker Violating Constitution:
Voting Against Pompeo for Religious Beliefs

Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) announced on Friday that he will vote against CIA Director Mike Pompeo’s nomination to become secretary of state because of Pompeo’s beliefs on marriage and sexuality — beliefs consistent with Pompeo’s Christian faith. Conservative leaders are now denouncing Booker’s vote as a violation of the Constitution’s Religious Test Clause. Booker sharply questioned Pompeo on Thursday during the nominee’s confirmation hearing before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, referring to words Pompeo spoke at a church in his district when the current director of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) was still serving in the U.S. House of Representatives.

Chick-fil-A scares Dan Piepenbring, a freelance writer in Brooklyn. He believes the Atlanta-based chain of chicken sandwich shops is one long nightmare for the City that Never Sleeps. Writing in New Yorker magazine, he said, "New York has taken to Chick-fil-A. One of the Manhattan locations estimates that it sells a sandwich every six seconds, and the company has announced plans to open as many as a dozen more storefronts in the city. And yet the brand’s arrival here feels like an infiltration, in no small part because of its pervasive Christian traditionalism. Its headquarters, in Atlanta, is adorned with

The charred remains of David Buckel, 60, were discovered shortly after sunrise when firefighters responded to a 6:40 a.m. blaze in the southwest corner of the sprawling Brooklyn park. “I am David Buckel and I just killed myself by fire as a protest suicide,” read a hand-written suicide note left near the blackened circle of burned grass. “I apologize to you for the mess.” A second, longer note — left with the first

The body count is staggering. In my 43 years as a journalist, armies of trained bloodhounds have been run out of newsrooms where I´ve worked, victims of layoffs, and buyouts, and battle fatigue. I´ve lost so many hundreds of colleagues, I can´t keep track of where they ended up. These were smart, curious reporters, photographers and editors who told stories that defined place and time and made us all know each other a little better. They covered the arts and the local sports teams. They bird-dogged city councils, courts, law enforcement, school districts and other agencies that spend our tax dollars, bearing

When Dick’s Sporting Goods said it would no longer sell modern sporting rifles at its Field & Stream stores following the Valentine’s Day shooting at a Parkland, Fla., high school, one question was what would happen to the unsold firearms in its inventory. Typically a retailer may return unsold merchandise to the manufacturer. But in this case, Dick’s Sporting Goods has decided to destroy them. “We are in the process of destroying all firearms and accessories that are no longer for sale as a result of our February 28th policy change,” a spokeswoman told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. “We are destroying the firearms
