2017-01-19: WT: Donald Trump the Revolutionary, by Charles Hurt
Not since 1980 -- or perhaps 1932 -- has such a political revolution hit the banks of the Potomac River. Donald Trump comes into the White House with a bright, clear mandate to make wholesale changes to every aspect of the federal government.
2015-06-16: The Federalist: Left Resorts To 'Gaslighting' Tactics In Transgender Debate
The growing normalization of insanity has resulted in the concurrent stigmatization of normalcy itself. Transgenderism has revealed this dismaying tendency in much of politics: if someone does not agree with the tenets of Progressive gender politics, then he will be painted as a deranged, antediluvian, backwards-looking hatemonger who can't get past his own outmoded psychological neuroses.
2015-06-02: WT: Washington Times launches new email partnership with Viguerie Political Lists

2015-01-22: American Thinker: Obama's Abuse of Taxpayers to Buy Voters' Love, by Lloyd Marcus
Only in America could a mere [black] ditch-digger achieve such success. So, upon hearing Obama's State of the Union speech, unlike many Americans, I am not seduced by a seemingly compassionate man trying to help the middle class. Quite the opposite: I am repulsed.

2014-09-17: PJ Media: 'CATALIST' - Obama's Database for Fundamentally Transforming America
The Democrats and the institutional left have a new political tool that allows them virtually to ignore moderates yet still win elections. This tool, the Catalist database, was employed in the 2012 election. If you wondered why the conventional wisdom about independents and moderates didnít seem so wise in 2012, the answer is Catalist.
2014-09-02: Ricochet.com: Political scientists' verdict on the Obama presidency: Silence
At this year's American Political Science Association (ASPA) annual meeting, the complete absence of panels assessing Obama's record is an indication that the academy now regards Obama as an indefensible embarrassment. This, in turn, may well be a sign that we are in for a wave election in November. What cannot be defended is apt to be jettisoned.
2014-08-06: News.org: 1,000-member secretive progressive journalist group uncovered

2014-07-26: Telegraph: Barack Obama has already checked out of his job
The rest of the world has noticed: "Rubbing elbows with the rich and elite is fine enough. Unfortunately, the work suffers. The degree to which [Obama] is now phoning it in -- sleepwalking perfunctorily through his second term -- is astonishing."
2014-07-25: The Other McCain: Evan Sayet Explains How Liberals 'Think' (Video 2:47)

"So it's not that the liberal is stupid, it's that he's made thinking into something that he will not engage in."
2014-07-17: Examiner: Has the Right lost its will to fight?
"I just want us to get back in the fight. We face a tireless, relentless foe in liberalism, and if we're not up to the challenge, we might as well kiss America goodbye, irrespective of whether we win or lose the next few elections."
2014-05-30: Examiner: Dinesh D'Souza's America warns Hillary Clinton will "finish off" country
"If Hillary Clinton is elected in 2016, the baton will have passed from one Alinskyite to another. In this case, Alinsky's influence will have taken on a massive, almost unimaginable, importance. Obama will have had eight years to remake America, and Hillary will have another four or perhaps eight to complete the job," he wrote.
2014-05-15: WT: Leftward, ho: Obama unlikely to stop portside push
The president is stuck. He must maintain his leftward tilt, simply to attempt to maintain his current political position, which is one of increasing isolation from all but the left.
2014-05-14: WT: Who's afraid of the USA?
Ordinary Americans have more reason to fear the U.S. government than do our foreign enemies. Liberals' quest for a global order has made conservatives the enemy. Only 22 percent of Americans look upon the U.S. Government as our protector, and 37 percent fear it outright.
2014-02-19: Infowars: The War On Men: 10 Ways Masculinity is Under Attack
A totalitarian society can only survive if the male population has been gelded, emasculated and disenfranchised. With this natural bulwark against tyranny removed, the elite can centralize power and pursue collectivist tyranny unopposed.
2014-02-14: Infowars: U.S. Army Builds 'Fake City' in Virginia to Practice Military Occupation
While the city was ostensibly built to prepare U.S. troops for the occupation of cities abroad, some will undoubtedly fear that the real intention could be closer to home. Although the site includes a mosque, the town looks American in every other way, with signs in English.
2014-02-06: MEDIAite: GOP, Dems Clash - 'Coincidence' Multiple Agencies Targeted Republican
Rep. Gerald Connolly (D-Va) put on quite a show on C-SPAN3, defending Obama's rogue agencies against the obvious targeting of a conservative organization.

FCTA board member Charles McAndrew discusses a daughter's experience in another Virginia public school system, and finds Fairfax's system wanting both academically and in total cost per student. But board member Fred Costello begs to differ!
2014-01-28: Buchanan: How the GOP Lost Middle America
Out of the Republican retreat on Maryland's Eastern shore comes word that the House leadership is raising the white flag of surrender on immigration. To understand why and how the Republican Party lost Middle America, and faces demographic death, we need to go back to Bush I.
2013-12-27: Camille Paglia: A Feminist Defense of Masculine Virtues
"What you're seeing is how a civilization commits suicide," says Camille Paglia. This self-described "notorious Amazon feminist" isn't telling anyone to Lean In or asking Why Women Still Can't Have It All. No, her indictment may be as surprising as it is wide-ranging: The military is out of fashion, Americans undervalue manual labor, schools neuter male students, opinion makers deny the biological differences between men and women, and sexiness is dead. And that's just 20 minutes of our three-hour conversation.
2013-12-26: The Federalist: A Tale of Two Millennials - Pajama Boy and Me
"I do not personally know Ethan Krupp. I do not wish him any ill will. I had no pressing interest in his background until I learned that we graduated from the same high school. My purpose today is simply to flesh out the stark contrast in worldviews between a young conservative and the wealthy liberals he grew up around."

2013-11-20: Obamacare costs and impact -- Tom Cranmer to Arthur Purves
Hi Arthur, at the end of our last board meeting, you seemed to dismiss the high cost of Obamacare. Since you are a numbers guy, I recommend you rethink your position. -- Tom
2013-10-24: Examiner: Charles Krauthammer diagnoses Obama's policies and psyche
Krauthammer just believes that President Obama deserves more scrutiny and criticism than he's getting -- that Obama's leftward pull on the country poses real danger. And nobody is in a better position to provide that criticism than Krauthammer.
2013-01-05: Mychal Massie: Why I Do Not Like The Obamas -- by a well-known black journalist
2012-10-29: PolitiZoid: The Great Pretender (Video 1:35 min)
