Conservative PAC Club for Growth gives Rep. Ilhan Omar a higher conservative rating than the new House GOP conference chair, Rep. Elise Stefanik. The Minnesota Democrat has a 38% conservative rating, according to Club for Growth, and Stefanik, R-N.Y., the new No. 3 Republican, scored 35%. Stefanik’s opponent in the GOP conference chair race, Rep. Chip Roy, R-Texas, scored a perfect 100%, and was endorsed by the group. Stefanik also received relatively low scores from the American Conservative Union and the conservative group Heritage Action. Stefanik, however, had the backing of former President Trump and other leading House Republicans. Stefanik voted against certifying the election


Screwed by the RINOs again?
I know very little about Stefanik, but this sounds very bad, like McCarthy is another Paul Ryan, at least at first glance.
Stefanik has some good votes, and supported Trump....but sounds like her normal voting is pretty far left. We'll see how this shakes out.

Makes one think Cheney's ouster may have more to do with something else other than the Trump impeachment vote. Power struggle inside the Republican party. What's going on?

Good question, #3. Why would the Republicans care if Cheney dissed Trump? They all feel that way. Like all things Deep State, there's another story lurking beneath the surface of the Swamp.

I warned earlier in the week that Stefanik might be a wobbly RINO wannabe despite her assurances and endorsement from President Trump. I hope I'm wrong, but as a poet or novelist might write, "...we have taken a viper to our bosom." Lets hope not!

A Wednesday morning police chase in Florida’s Broward County ended with five juveniles in custody and several others injured, according to authorities and shocking video. Police were called shortly before 7 a.m. Wednesday for a report of a Fort Lauderdale home being burglarized while people were inside. According to the caller, the suspects were trying to steal a car from the garage of the home, police said. They got away, but not before police were provided with a description of their vehicle. When cops caught up to the getaway car and tried to pull it over, the suspects refused and a police chase ensued, authorities said.

As the public faces escalating demands that we become test subjects for an experimental "vaccine," and "vaccine passports" loom as a method of denying rights to those who decline, it turns out that employees at Dr. Fauci's unit of the NIH, the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, are not playing along enthusiastically.

Renaissance education is the foundation of the modern university system. It was based on the concept of the Universal Man or Uomo Universale. As mankind was the ultimate creation of God, it was man’s job to reach his maximum by continual self-improvement. This idea led to the notion that men should try to embrace all knowledge and develop their own capacities as fully as possible. To be a Renaissance man, one must develop his knowledge base as well as his craft. Perhaps no person embodies this concept more than Renaissance artist, scientist, and inventor Leonardo da Vinci. In Leonardo, a duality of the mind and hands is found.

Van Morrison released a Rorschach Test disguised as an album this week in the 28-track Latest Record Project Volume 1. The critics who regarded him alongside Bob Dylan and Leonard Cohen and Paul Simon now insist that he ranks somewhere beneath Morris Albert but above Fergie. The Los Angeles Times calls Latest Record Project Volume 1 “conspiratorially cranky.” The Guardian dubs it “tinfoil millinery.” “You will notice I have not posted links to these songs,” announces the author of “Goodbye, Van Morrison” on after he references a half-dozen songs by the Irish singer. “There is a reason.

Lurking among the jubilant Americans venturing back out to bars and planning their summer-wedding travel is a different group: liberals who aren’t quite ready to let go of pandemic restrictions. For this subset, diligence against COVID-19 remains an expression of political identity—even when that means overestimating the disease’s risks or setting limits far more strict than what public-health guidelines permit. In surveys, Democrats express more worry about the pandemic than Republicans do. People who describe themselves as “very liberal” are distinctly anxious. This spring, after the vaccine rollout had started, a third of very liberal people were “very concerned” about becoming seriously ill

With the exception of those who may have glanced at the February edition of Vogue magazine or recently browsed the New York Times style section, we have not seen or heard much from Kamala Harris since she was sworn in as the 49th vice president of the United States on January 20. We did, however, learn from the Washington Post that Harris likes to crochet and that she recently “learned about a special hand-dyed yarn” after visiting a knitting shop in Alexandria, Virginia. On March 24, the vice president’s low visibility seemed likely to change when President Biden tapped Harris to lead the ongoing border crisis that has spiraled out of control

The first Saturday in May has become a holiday of sorts to me. Every year, I make it a point to attend the running of the Kentucky Derby at beautiful Churchill Downs in Louisville. It’s a spectacle with all my favorite ingredients: family, friends, food, mint juleps, and classic Southern charm, all wrapped around the most exciting two minutes in sports. The people in the stands look gorgeous, dressed to the nines. The weather this year was 70 degrees and sunny. Right before the big race, the University of Louisville marching band played the time-honored classic “My Old Kentucky Home,” as they have since the 1920s.

The Democratic Party has always been a racist party. Any interested person who has studied the internal workings of this duplicitous faction is aware of its racist history, its elitist framework, its systemic arrogance, hypocrisy, and intellectual dishonesty -- and, more disturbingly, of its brightly lit scaffold of democratic pretensions. But the most disheartening effect of its propaganda is that millions are drawn to its superficial rhetoric of "social justice" in the hope of finding moral certainty in the sewers and waste pits of a despotic ideology of power. Racism is a structural injustice deeply embedded within the politics and language of the Democratic Party.

Long gone are the days when “politics as usual” meant Democrats and Republicans quibbling over policy preferences. Today’s divide is more existential than political, between two sides -- left versus right, progressives versus conservatives, statists versus classical liberals, however you want to phrase it -- who see the world in fundamentally different terms, almost as if they live in two separate realities. Okay, never mind the “almost.” Since a good pocket definition of “insanity” is “out of touch with reality,” each side thus thinks the other is literally insane.

Those who feel that “systemic racism” still exists in the U.S.A. today cannot give convincing examples of it and completely ignore the undeniable success of the South’s black civil rights movement. This struggle can be traced back to December 1955 when Rosa Parks, a black woman member of the NAACP, sat down in the “For whites only” area of a segregated public bus and refused to give up her seat. This spontaneous act sparked the growth of a massive movement within the black Christian churches to eliminate all forms of racial segregation laws in America. In time, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., a black Baptist minister
