How Middle America Is to Be Dispossessed ~ VIDEO

Opinion USA – -( In all but one of the last seven presidential elections, Republicans lost the popular vote. George W. Bush and Donald Trump won only by capturing narrow majorities in the Electoral College. Hence the grand strategy of the left: to enlarge and alter the U.S. electorate so as to put victory as far out of reach for national Republicans as it is today for California Republicans, and to convert the GOP into America's permanent minority party. In the Golden State, Dem...

The perverse power of the Democrats rule that a candidate with 65,000 donors gets into the debates.

WaPo explains, noting that the obscure candidate John Delaney is offering to give $2 to charity if you give him $1. Delaney is wealthy and self-funded. So he can do something like that easily.The Democratic Party also set the fundraising threshold with the goal of expanding the early debate stage to include as many as 20 candidates, who will be randomly divided to appear on consecutive nights in a two-day June debate hosted by NBC and a two-day July meeting hosted by CNN.Using polling alone to f...

Opinion He is humble, gracious and respectful to a fault, and his kindness probably inflames his intolerant enemies all the more because it exposes their contrasting gracelessness, intolerance and mean-spiritedness.

In Defense of the Electoral College

Senator Elizabeth Warren has joined a growing chorus within the Democratic party in calling for the abolition of the Electoral College. Speaking at a forum in Mississippi on Monday night, Warren said that she hoped to ensure that “every vote matters” and proposed that “the way we can make that happen is that we can have national voting, and that means get rid of the Electoral College.”Warren’s lofty rhetoric notwithstanding, a large portion of the Democratic party’s present animosity toward the ...

"Engaged protesters were not able to block the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act or Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court, but they did render both toxically unpopular."

The resistance has demobilized....

Why a top antitrust lawmaker thinks it’s time to break up Facebook

When the newly-minted chair of a congressional antitrust committee calls you out, it’s probably time to start worrying. In an op-ed for the New York Times, Rhode Island Representative David N. Cicilline has called on the Federal Trade Commission to look into Facebook’s behavior for potential antitrust violations, citing TechCrunch’s own reporting that the company collected data on teens through a secret paid program among many other scandals. “After each misdeed becomes public, Facebook alter...

Inside Nunes’ Absurd Suit Against Trolls Acting As His ‘Mom’ And His ‘Cow’

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) got his feelings hurt on Twitter. That’s the gist of the arch-conservative’s lawsuit against Twitter, a Republican operative and two parody Twitter accounts, which was filed in Virginia late Monday. Nunes has positioned the suit as an effort to stand up to supposedly liberal social media platforms, companies that many conservatives — like the President’s son — agree are out to get far-right thinkers. From memes illustrating a “Human Centipede”-style relationship betwee...

Farewell To The Resistance?

Anyone can be startled by a yelping dog. The true detective, as Sherlock Holmes taught us, is the one who notices dogs that don’t bark and asks why they remained silent. Over at Vox, Matthew Yglesias points out that the Resistance, the guard dog whose vigilance played such a crucial role as a check against Donald Trump, has gone quiet since the Democrats won the House in the 2018 midterms. “The resistance has demobilized,” Yglesias notes. “There was no mass mobilization to call senators in ad...
