Been happening since the 1880s – a foreign attack that has never gone away

by Skip May 18, 2018

After all, it made them feel better about themselves in lusting after “a higher status in life” than they’d ordinarily have.  Still do. They just keep forgetting about what happened when their lifespan of being useful idiots is over (re: The Long March). (H/T: Powerline)

You Want to Talk About Cultural Appropriation? Let’s Do that!

by Steve MacDonald May 4, 2018

With all This Talk about Cultural Appropriation when is someone going to start focusing on how the Democrat party has appropriated (or been appropriated) by secular-humanist-socialist-Marxism? It’s not American. It contradicts most, if not all the cultural foundations or tenents of our nation. So, why does the modern Democrat party, its politicians, and their mouthpieces, […]

Notable Quote – Bob Higgs

by Skip April 1, 2018

Socialism’s greatest appeal springs from its promise of economic equality. Many people, upon their first encounter with the ideology, find this promise the very heart and soul of justice. Yet, completely apart from whether such an outcome could or would ever be attained in practice, a great and insuperable problem remains: in a world where […]

Notable Quote – Kevin Williamson

by Skip February 23, 2018

“The difference between communism and socialism is that under socialism central planning ends with a gun in your face, whereas under communism central planning begins with a gun in your face.” –Kevin Williamson (writer, author) (H/T: The Truth About Guns) And Susan notes:

Truth be told…they do hate us for wanting to make our own decisions for ourselves

Since commenter Asawatch seems to like Communism

by Skip May 1, 2017

I figured that a little rebuttal from some of his comments here in an entertaining way would be in order – Louder from Crowder:   From NRO, a book to read:  The Black Book of Communism: Crimes, Terror, Repression (H/T: RedState, The Corner)

Remember Victims of Communism Day, May Day 2017

by Scott Morales May 1, 2017

Today is May Day or what should be Remember the Victims of Communism Day. From The Washington Post: May Day began as a holiday for socialists and labor union activists, not just communists. But over time, the date was taken over by the Soviet Union and other communist regimes and used as a propaganda tool […]

Local Groups Admit They are in League with Communism

by Steve MacDonald April 29, 2017

If Tea Party activists marched with Klan members that would suggest an affinity or affiliation as damning as any. And so it should be with groups that March in celebration of May Day. A number of local groups are sponsoring or participating in May Day marches in New Hampshire. That should associate them ideologically with the […]

Reminder: The 45 Declared Goals of Communism in America

by Steve MacDonald March 27, 2017

The 45 Declared Goals are required reading (and sharing) for anyone who wants to suggest to someone that the Left isn’t just winging it. [From “The Naked Communist,” by Cleon Skousen – 1963] CURRENT COMMUNIST GOALS  45. Repeal the Connally reservation so the United States cannot prevent the World Court from seizing jurisdiction [over domestic […]

And now, more than a few Leftist embrace Marx that spawned Communism

REmember, not ONE  Progressive Democrat in DC that has been asked can tell what the difference is between a Democrat and a Socialist.  And Mars always posited that Socialism is just a stepping stone to Communism. (H/T: Powerline)

American Unexceptionalsim

Thumbnail image for American Unexceptionalsim

Torn from the audio of this weeks podcast…dramatic, yes, my wide-ranging conversation with Mike Rogers on the ongoing effort by the professional left to make America unexceptional. There’s even a nod to Austin Powers in there if you can find it. Download this segment | Listen to the entire Podcast Music c/o Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com) […]

Snippet 3: Koba the Dread, Zachto?

by Scott Morales June 28, 2016

Snippet 3 of this series asks: What do you call the killing of twenty million people? It’s really not called anything at all in this country. Not a word. Not a phrase. It’s not mentioned at all.  Most do not know of the massive Soviet killing. Some Russians call it “the twenty million”.  But Amis […]

Snippet 2: Koba the Dread, Christopher Hitchens, Breaking the Truth

by Scott Morales June 17, 2016

Snippet 2 of this series touches on the friendship of Amis and Christopher Hitchens and the left’s penchant for breaking the truth. During the mid-1970s I worked for the famous and historic and now perhaps obsolescent Labour weekly, the New Statesman (or the NEW STATESMAN, in its own house style). § My contemporaries there were […]

Snippet 1: Koba the Dread: Laughter and the Twenty Million

by Scott Morales June 9, 2016

I’ve been meaning to do this for awhile.  And given our current circumstances, now seems about right.  I read this fantastic non-fiction book late last year that I’d like to share bits of; hopefully, this will encourage you to read it.  It’s by Martin Amis, and it’s about the left in the West and the […]

An “end feature” of Bernie’s and Hillary’s Democratic Socialism – see Venezuela

by Skip May 1, 2016

Under Chavez and his designated replacement Maduro, we can see EXACTLY what will happen if Progressives keep moving us further away from the Constitution and towards Das Kapital: With Socialism Failing To Provide, Venezuelans Resort To Looting In Order To Survive Right now, there is a lack of access to television, long distance phone service, […]

After the Show – Part II

by Skip April 18, 2016

Again, we are absolutely amazed and disheartened that socialism has made such a return to American politics – it is the antithesis of what the Founders stood for.  I’ve gone over why I believe it has over and over again, so I’m not going to do it here.  Instead, we mentioned on last Saturday’s show […]

The heart of a socialist is long – and always gets broken

by Skip April 16, 2016

If you are always reading, you will learn something new all the time!  And this I didn’t know, that socialism (and the tendency of Progressives to try (force?) to “perfect” others arrived here on our shores much earlier than the late 1800s in this piece labeled “The Character of a Socialist” (emphasis mine, reformatted): Upon […]

Bernie Sanders – Bread lines are GOOD for you?

by Skip April 9, 2016

Yes, he’s proving that Socialism is not about shared wealth, it IS about shared misery.  If it were the former, a real workers’ Utopia that Socialists and Communists are always lying bragging about, who would have to wait in a line to get bread.  I am of the generation that saw “citizens” of Socialist governments […]

Instapundit answers THE question of last night’s riot at cancelled Trump rally

by Skip March 12, 2016

I remember people saying that back in 1968, too. Back then, it was the New Left radicals attacking (literally a riot) their “own” Party, the Democrats.  Now, the New Left (organized by MoveOn.org) is going after Trump – who breaks every conceivable Political Correctness out there.  And we are now seeing, outside of college campuses), […]

Oh Bernie? I think the Healthcare narrative is changing under your feet!

by Skip February 26, 2016

Bernie would be Bernie Sanders, the Socialist Communist in Democrat wolf’s fur.  He of the “everything’s FREE in America” bent – until the bill comes due.  Given that he’s appealing to the economic and history idiots in the country, he’s gained a lot of traction especially when he wants a single payer healthcare system here […]

Notable Quote – Bernie hates capitalism

by Skip February 10, 2016

From Weekend Pundit: Speaking of Bernie Sanders, we should all remember that he’s never held a private sector job. All of his paychecks have come from government, be it the city of Burlington, Vermont or from Uncle Sam as a member of Congress, either in the House or the Senate. He’s never had to worry […]

Data Point – Bernie Sanders will hoover up your money

by Skip January 19, 2016

Bernie Sanders, like all Socialists / Statists, believes your money is really the State’s money.  After all, if you believe in Warrenism, “you didn’t build that” and apparently, Bernie believes that the State is only lending you your money, and now he wants it back.  After all, like all Statists, he believes his spending your […]

Martin Luther King on Marxism / Communism / Socialism / Progressivism

by Skip January 19, 2016

For in the end, they are pretty much aligned to the same end – The Bigger the Citizen, the smaller the citizen (emphasis mine): During the Christmas holidays of 1949 I decided to spend my spare time reading Karl Marx to try to understand the appeal of communism for many people. For the first time […]

Obama Staffers: Anita Dunn, Van Jones….and now Samatha Powers

by Skip September 29, 2015

You are who you surround yourself with – and it has been clear that Obama by choosing his staff, he has made his ideology clear.  Both Dunn and Jones made it quite clear where they stood politically – example when Anita Dunn praised Mao Zedong as her idol.  So now we go to Obama’s UN […]

Notable Quote – Theodore Dalrymple

by Skip February 25, 2015

“In my study of communist societies, I came to the conclusion that the purpose of communist propaganda was not to persuade or convince, nor to inform, but to humiliate; and therefore, the less it corresponded to reality the better. When people are forced to remain silent when they are being told the most obvious lies, […]

ObamaCare, ObamaZone – The Big Lie: ” It was disguised as something that would be almost completely voluntary”

by Skip July 27, 2014

NH State Rep Leigh Webb (D): “The role of government is to legislate behavior“ And that is not the expression of one that values or cherishes Freedom; instead, it is THE  seedling of Totalitarianism.  Obamacare, ObamaZoning – different facets of the same evil – those that have the hubris of incomplete knowledge that feel they have the right […]

LeBron James knows what Obama and Elizabeth Warren don’t

by Skip July 14, 2014

Caught at The Corner: The line in his [LeBron James] return-to-Cleveland statement that resonates most with us denizens of the North Coast is the following: “In Northeast Ohio, nothing is given. Everything is earned. You work for what you have.” Contrast that statement with Barack Obama’s obtuse, insulting, and dispiriting 2012 observation: ” You didn’t build […]
