Don’t Let The ‘Christian Nationalist’ Slur Shame You Into Hiding Your Faith

Don’t Let The ‘Christian Nationalist’ Slur Shame You Into Hiding Your Faith

(The Federalist) Politico came out swinging on Tuesday with the tired “Christian nationalist” slur in an article about a second Donald Trump term. It intended to shame conservatives who “believe that the country was founded as a Christian nation and that Christian values should be prioritized throughout government and public life” — in other words, mainstream Christians.

Lara Trump Vows Largest-Ever Legal ‘Ballot Harvesting’ Operation If Elected RNC Co-Chair

Lara Trump Vows Largest-Ever Legal ‘Ballot Harvesting’ Operation If Elected RNC Co-Chair

(Zerohedge) Ballot harvesting, which is legal in many states, allows people to deliver other voters’ absentee or mail-in ballots to election officials. Some fear this practice facilitates election fraud. Republicans have long frowned upon it; Democrats have taken advantage of it. “Whether or not they [Democrats] do it legally, that’s up for discussion,” Ms. Trump said.

‘MAGA Will Govern for 50 Years’: Steve Bannon Opens CPAC With Prediction of Trump Victory Amid ‘Three Global Crises’

(Mediaite) “Steve Bannon has nothing to do with me or my Presidency. When he was fired, he not only lost his job, he lost his mind. Steve was a staffer who worked for me after I had already won the nomination by defeating seventeen candidates, often described as the most talented field ever assembled in the Republican party,” Trump fumed in January 2018.

The growing peril of national conservatism

The growing peril of national conservatism

(The Economist) Despite its name, national conservatism could not be more different from the ideas of Reagan and Thatcher. Rather than being sceptical of big government, national conservatives think ordinary people are beset by impersonal global forces and that the state is their saviour. Unlike Reagan and Thatcher, they hate pooling sovereignty in multilateral organisations, they suspect free markets of being rigged by the elites and they are hostile to migration

Tucker Carlson: Radicalized By His Trip To Moscow

Tucker Carlson: Radicalized By His Trip To Moscow

(Zerohedge) In a post last week (“A Good Weekend For Russia”), when news broke that Tucker Carlson was in Moscow and might be interviewing Putin, we wrote: Even if he doesn’t get an interview with Putin, Tucker is likely to report what he sees there, and what he’s going to see is a city that looks like it’s doing well economically (on top of being cleaner and safer than American cities like New York or Los Angeles).

The Claremont Institute Is Upsetting the Right People

The Claremont Institute Is Upsetting the Right People

(American Conservative) That’s why we’ve been the subject of extended profiles (some more negative than others) in the New York Times, the Washington Post, the New Republic, the Atlantic, and other major left-wing publications in just the last couple of years. Not bad for a think-tank whose annual budget is equal to the cost of a few of the missiles that America lobs ineffectually at Houthi tribesmen in Yemen.

Another Trump Presidency Won’t Much Change U.S. Foreign Policy

Another Trump Presidency Won’t Much Change U.S. Foreign Policy

(Foreign Policy) If we turn to foreign policy, the differences are not so stark. Although many people now fear that a second Trump term would have dramatic effects on U.S. foreign policy, I suspect the differences will be less significant than you might think. Trump will be erratic, mercurial, boorish, and confrontational—especially toward America’s NATO allies—just as he was during his first term. But in other respects, a second Trump term may not be that different from what Biden would do should he win another four years in office.

DeSantis Will Bounce Back

DeSantis Will Bounce Back

(American Greatness) Over the next few days and weeks ahead, the pundits, the critics, and social media “influencers” will no doubt continue their nastiness and direct their vitriol at DeSantis—as they pathetically try to write off his future political aspirations as dead on arrival. They sure do love kicking people when they’re down, especially when that person is a Republican.

How To Move On From Ron, For DeSantis’s Understandably Disappointed Supporters

How To Move On From Ron, For DeSantis’s Understandably Disappointed Supporters

(The Federalist) DeSantis, also known as “the greatest Republican governor of my lifetime,” effectively ended his so very disappointing campaign for president on Sunday. As politicians of the same party routinely do after primaries, he immediately endorsed his competitor Donald Trump. That should be all his supporters needed to swallow however hard is necessary and do the same, but the wounds are apparently not just superficial for some of Team DeSantis.

DeSantis endorsed Trump, along with former GOP presidential primary candidates Vivek Ramaswamy, North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum, and Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C.

The Neoconservative Movement is Trotskyism

The Neoconservative Movement is Trotskyism

(Veterans Today) “Most neoconservative defense intellectuals have their roots on the left, not the right. They are products of the influential Jewish-American sector of the Trotskyist movement of the 1930s and 1940s, which morphed into anti-communist liberalism between the 1950s and 1970s and finally into a kind of militaristic and imperial right with no precedents in American culture or political history.”

GOP Presidential Candidate Vivek Ramaswamy Blames Liberal ‘White Guilt’ for Creating a ‘New Wave of Racism’

GOP Presidential Candidate Vivek Ramaswamy Blames Liberal ‘White Guilt’ for Creating a ‘New Wave of Racism’

(Big League Politics) Republican Presidential Candidate Vivek Ramaswamy is taking aim at the racism-industrial complex that is being perpetrated on the American people by hostile, anti-American leftists. Ramaswamy made the point that “white guilt” and other nonsense is being exploited in order to deepen racial divisions and undermine the “dream” of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. during an appearance on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”

Move over, AARP. A conservative competitor that rejects the AARP’s liberal political agenda for seniors has 2.2 million members and growing.

Move over, AARP. A conservative competitor that rejects the AARP’s liberal political agenda for seniors has 2.2 million members and growing.

(The Federalist) For decades now, AARP, which once stood for the American Association of Retired Persons and has been subsequently rebranded as just a set of initials that stand for nothing, has been one of the most influential lobby groups in Washington, D.C. Though AARP was supposed to represent a large and politically diverse cross-section of older Americans, its transformation into an overtly partisan Democrat organization is hard to deny.

The Matt Gaetz GOP Future

The Matt Gaetz GOP Future

(The Bulwark) Once the speech had concluded, I decided to pick the brains of this rising generation of right-wing activists. They liked Vivek fine, but when I asked whom they were most excited to see here at Americafest, Turning Point USA’s yearly MAGAchella, the answer was Florida Congressman Matt Gaetz.
