The Problem with Purism
American Thinker, by Auguste Meyrat

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 12/4/2018 12:24:07 PM

Deciding to vote for a Republican or Democrat is like deciding between a shelter and a hurricane. Republican voters clearly prefer the stability and cover of a shelter. They wisely fear the innovations of Democrats who want to expand the power of government for the supposedly greater good. They do not buy the progressive response that disagreeing with the liberal agenda equates to hating victims. Most Republican voters simply want to worship, do business, and speak their minds in peace. For their part, Republican politicians usually promise these very things and not much more. In terms of shelter, some work

Whoa there Auggie FTA:

"They wisely fear the innovations of Democrats who want to expand the power of government for the supposedly greater good."

The democrats stand for an abandonment of the innovative experiment in self determination and toward a return to the totalitarianism of the ages, who the hell are you kidding?

Presidential hopefuls pushed to

Environmental activists are ramping up a pressure campaign designed to drum up Democratic support for a sweeping agenda to fight climate change, with the 2020 presidential campaign in their sights. Hundreds of young demonstrators turned out Monday on Capitol Hill to push Democrats on a package of ambitious environmental goals — including a nationwide transition to 100 percent power from renewable sources within as little as 10 years — that´s collectively dubbed the Green New Deal. Already embraced by Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., an increasingly influential figure on the left, the Green New Deal is designed to nudge prospective Democratic

Declaring that ISIS is a "globalist" organization, a new magazine geared toward young recruits is calling on jihadists to wage vehicle attacks outside of the U.S. Capitol. Shabab al-Khilafah, or The Youth of the Caliphate, debuted its first issue on Oct. 10 as a colorful collection of articles, posters and teasers to online videos encouraging home-turf attacks on behalf of the Islamic State. Supporters were encouraged to submit content for future issues. That debut issue, which was distributed via online file-sharing sites, called for lone-jihadist attacks in Australia. On Nov. 9, Hassan Khalif Shire Ali rammed his car filled with

Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., has made plain he would like to be President Trump’s chief of staff when John Kelly departs this month. “Serving as [White House] Chief of Staff would be an incredible honor,” Meadows said in a statement to the Washington Examiner. “The President has a long list of qualified candidates and I know he’ll make the best selection for his administration and for the country.” Trump announced over the weekend that Kelly would be departing the White House at the end of the year. The announcement came as several reports indicated that the relationship had soured and

The Russian pop star who set up the notorious Trump Tower meeting today speaks out to tell DailyMailTV that it was ´useless´ and the result of a ´stunt´ - and said he had not been subpoenaed by Robert Mueller´s special counsel probe. Emin Agalarov, known in Russia solely by his first name, described the now infamous email to Donald Trump Jr. offering him a meeting to hand over information which would ´incriminate´ Hillary Clinton as a ´creative stunt´ designed to get the Trumps´ attention. And he ridiculed the idea that the Kremlin could interfere in a presidential election. Emin, 38,

French President Emmanuel Macron has caved in to Yellow Vest protesters, declaring a state of emergency and agreeing to a range of economic concessions after weeks of violence swept his country. Addressing the nation at the Presidential Elysee Palace this evening Mr Macron promised to increase the minimum wage, stop taxing overtime pay and decrease pension contributions from 2019. Declaring a ´social and economic´ state of emergency, he took responsibility for the violent protests in Paris and dozens of other French cities in the name of the ´Yellow Vest´ movement. He said ´all means´ will be used to restore calm

On Sunday, Pat Sajack, host of ABC’s “Wheel of Fortune” game show, tweeted out his suggestion for saving the Academy Awards show from continuing to lose audience – make it twice as long by turning it into a two-night event: “Here’s a quick fix for the Academy Awards show: expand it to two nights. On the first night, give out awards and celebrate the history and wonder of movies. “On the second night, hold your political rally.” (Tweet)

Supreme Court gives victory to Planned

WASHINGTON — The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday left lower court victories intact for Planned Parenthood in a legal battle with states over access by Medicaid patients to the group´s services. The dispute did not involve abortion, but the action by the justices keeps a hot-button political issue off the docket. Three of the court´s conservatives said the court should have taken the case. After an anti-abortion group released videos in 2015 that purported to show officials from Planned Parenthood talking about selling fetal tissue, several states immediately terminated Medicaid provider agreements with the group´s affiliates. The videos were largely

Lisa Kennedy Montgomery does not believe Congress “has the guts” to pass immigration legislation that would fund President Trump’s border wall. The Fox Business Network host, in a panel discussion on Fox News’ “The Next Revolution,” said she does not believe comprehensive immigration reform is possible with the current “hyper-partisan” politics playing out in Congress. (Photo) Fox News host Steve Hilton spoke with author Frank Buckley about the Democrats’ resistance to making a deal with President Trump to fund his plans for a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border.

A year after Trump’s Jerusalem declaration,

In an age when doomsday predictions are as common as thunderstorms, it can be instructive to look back at events and compare the predictions to what actually happened. The decision by President Trump to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital is an example that offers major lessons. Long before Trump made the announcement on Dec. 6, 2017, and pledged to move our embassy to Jerusalem, there were endless warnings that the change would cause global unrest. Opponents in America, Europe and the Arab world, including current and former government officials, vehemently insisted the peace process between Israel and Palestinians would be

President Trump´s first tweets of this Monday addressed Friday´s court filing by the Southern District of New York, which said Trump´s former personal attorney Michael Cohen "played a central role" in suppressing the stories of Stormy Daniel and Karen McDougal, who claimed to have had extra-marital affairs with Trump. Cohen told prosecutors he did so, "in coordination with and at the direction of" Trump, "with the intent to influence the 2016 presidential election." "As a result of Cohen’s actions, neither woman spoke to the press prior to the election," the court filing said. Trump, for the first time, addressed the alleged

So if the USA is a terrible horrible place, what country/nation do the (millennials/elitists) critics think we should try to be like? Have the critics spent a year in whatever country that is? It seems reasonable that they should, to be sure they know what that country looks like instead of relying on second and third hand reports. After all, changing the nature of our nation is not going to be cheap or easy. Even “climate chaos” mongers do a little (ultimately flawed) research.

Many GOP leaders and politicians have started to question whether President Donald Trump will serve out his entire term, conservative commentator David Brooks has said. The right-leaning pundit, (Snip) pointed out that there is growing uncertainty among Republicans over Trump’s future during an interview with PBS News Hour . Brooks explained that politician’s from the president’s party have started to see his administration as losing “authority” and “failing.” Appearing alongside liberal political commentator Mark Shields, Brooks said it seems like “a lot of Republicans are looking at this White House, and they’re seeing an administration under a lot of

Legal trouble for President Trump is coming from all sides. There’s evidence Paul Manafort was still communicating with the White House this year. There’s evidence suggesting the Russian government was offering “synergy” with the Trump campaign. There’s further evidence Trump directed Michael Cohen to make the hush-money payments to pornographer Stormy Daniels. It’s still very unclear whether Trump broke any laws. It’s perfectly clear, however, that Trump got himself in this perfectly avoidable mess through bad behavior. For starters: Had Trump not cheated on his wife with a porn actress, he would not have found himself

The mugshot of an Ohio woman with a spooky full face tattoo has gone viral following her shoplifting and drug arrest, according to reports. Alyssa Zebrasky, 27, was arrested last Wednesday for stealing a bag at a Boardman Township WalMart, Fox8 reported. During a search at the Mahoning County Jail, cops found bags of methamphetamine and a hypodermic needle, the outlet said. “I don’t see how she was caught. Maintaining a low profile and all .?.?.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D.-Calif.) responded to the November employment report that came out today—which showed that a record 156,795,000 were employed in America—by saying that the report revealed “a callous GOP special interest agenda” that has hurt the “economic security of hard-working families.” The unemployment numbers released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics indicated that the unemployment rate was 3.7 percent for the third straight month. That is the lowest unemployment rate the United States has seen since 1969, according to BLS. “November’s jobs report shows an economy straining beneath the weight of a callous GOP special interest agenda that

“Prosecutors’ Narrative Is Clear: Trump Defrauded Voters.” So declares the first part of the headline of a New York Times article by Peter Baker and Nicholas Fandos. The rest of the headline asks “But What Does It Mean?” Good question. It may mean that the prosecutors haven’t found a crime, but are still pi**ed off that Trump won the election. I find odd the notion that Trump defrauded voters. No candidate in my lifetime ever painted a clearer, more vivid picture of himself for voters. For better or for worse,

The country’s National Assembly approved a proposal to change the constitution to make the so-called reforms legal in a vote of 183 to 77. This paves the way for land to be taken from farmers without giving any kind of compensation. And now lawmakers have agreed to set up a committee that will write and introduce a new bill for land expropriations. A deadline of the end of March next year for the committee to present its first report to parliament has also been agreed. But there were heated scenes in the House when politicians clashed over the plans. According to local reports, Economic Freedom

Rep. Jerrold Nadler on Sunday said it would be an impeachable offense if it’s proven that President Trump directed former lawyer Michael Cohen to commit felonies. “Whether they are important enough to justify an impeachment is a different question, but certainly they’d be impeachable offenses,” Mr. Nadler, who is in line to chair the House Judiciary Committee next year, said on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “Even though they were committed before the president became president, they were committed in the service of fraudulently obtaining the office — that would be an impeachable offense,” said Mr. Nadler, New York Democrat.

Retiring House Speaker Paul Ryan is quietly pushing a bill to outsource many thousands of U.S. college graduate jobs to Irish graduates and deliver amnesty to Irish illegals. His Irish-only bill was quietly pushed through the House on November 28 without a recorded vote by legislators. It is now awaiting approval by the U.S. Senate — but the outsourcing and amnesty bill will be blocked if even one U.S. senator privately or publicly notifies GOP Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell that he or she will oppose the measure.

I sensed it!” Ms. Ocasio-Cortez said, pointing out an audience member who reacted to her news, NBC reported. “One of the things that we discovered about ourselves is that a very very long time ago, generations and generations ago, my family consisted of Sephardic Jews,”

On Friday morning, comedian Kevin Hart stepped down from hosting this year’s Oscars after 7-year-old homophobic tweets surfaced. By now, debacles such as this are sad and predictable, but this one is also illustrative of the Oscars’ ever-increasing irrelevance. Finding a host for the Oscars has become near-impossible, and until announcing Hart last week, the Academy had been desperate. With little more than two months to go, no other star was willing to sign on. A recent Hollywood Reporter column assailed hosting the Oscars as “a gig that almost no one should want”

The major takeaway from the 40-page sentencing memorandum filed by federal prosecutors Friday for Michael Cohen, President Trump’s former personal attorney, is this: The president is very likely to be indicted on a charge of violating federal campaign finance laws. It has been obvious for some time that President Trump is the principal subject of the investigation still being conducted by the U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York. Cohen earlier pleaded guilty to multiple counts of business and tax fraud, violating campaign finance law, and making false statements to Congress
