The Disappearance of Southern Conservatism


Abraham Lincoln has become, for most mainline conservatives, an icon, and, along with Martin Luther King, Jr., no opportunity is lost—it seems—on Fox News or in the establishment “conservative press,” to stress just how much conservatively-minded Americans owe to these two canonized martyrs. Any demurer, any dissent or disagreement, brings forth condemnations of the complainant as a “racist” or “reactionary,” or worse, maybe some Southern redneck hick who hides his old Klan robe but keeps it at the ready.

During the past fifty or so years the old Southern Democratic Party has virtually disappeared, died out, as millions of conservative Southerners, many motivated by their sincere religious faith and resistance to radical and unnatural change, migrated to the Republican Party. The GOP, beginning in the Nixon years, employed what was called a “Southern strategy,” largely elaborated by consultant Kevin Phillips and spelled out most clearly in his volume, The Emerging Republican Majority (1969). GOP spokesman learned to speak a language and offer symbols that millions of Southerner found attractive, even compelling.

Former President Donald Trump has made good on his threat to create a new communications platform for himself after being banned by the Silicon Valley tech giants. Titled “From the Desk of Donald J. Trump” the site appears at DonaldJTrump.com/desk. The site, which went live Tuesday, lets Mr. Trump post comments, images, and videos, but does not permit, as Twitter and Facebook do, comments from users.

Losing Texas Candidate Issues Warning: 2022 ‘Could Be Major Setback’ for Democrats

Losing Texas Candidate Issues Warning: 2022 ‘Could Be Major Setback’ for Democrats

A Democratic candidate who lost her bid during last weekend’s Texas congressional special election sounded the alarm that the 2022 midterms “could be a major setback” for the Democratic Party.

During the special election, two Republicans—and no Democrats—advanced in the runoff as the top two vote-getters in the race for Texas’s 6th Congressional District, after no one in the 23-candidate field won an outright majority of votes on May 1.

The mainstream media in the United States lies a lot, and one of the subjects upon which they lie frequently is the racial breakdown of people who subsist on public assistance programs, which are run by the government and which are subsidized by taxing the earnings of working citizens.

Here are the population demographic percentages.

Of US citizens,
60.4% are white
13.4% are black
18.3% are mestizos
5.9% are Asians

 Liz Cheney Launches Another Attack on Trump as Calls Grow to Remove Her From GOP Leadership

“The 2020 presidential election was not stolen,” Cheney responded in a tweet. “Anyone who claims it was is spreading THE BIG LIE, turning their back on the rule of law, and poisoning our democratic system.”

Over the past several months, Cheney has seemingly focused more on attacking her own party instead of focusing on opposing Democrat President Joe Biden’s far-left agenda. Cheney even refused in a recent interview to rule out running for president in 2024, which was met with widespread mockery.

Evaluating Covid Vaccine Death Rate

 Via John" I decided to do a little research this morning; was curious about quantifying the internet-abundant stories of people dropping dead after take one of the available vaccines.   I went to the CDC's VAERS

(Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System) to see what I could see.
Below you'll find the details. 
For me, there are two main takeaways:
1)  This vaccine is astronomically more dangerous than other vaccines.
2)  Despite that, the risk (~0.02%) is quite low; something on the order 
     of one death for every 5,000 vaccinations. The vaccine odds are still better
     than the odds of getting/surviving Covid. "


Trump Vindicated as Judge Rules Michigan Secretary of State Violated Election Laws


A judge in Michigan has vindicated President Trump by ruling that Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson, a Democrat, broke state law when she unilaterally changed election rules concerning absentee balloting in the 2020 election. This ruling legitimizes a key claim made by the Trump legal team in its challenges to the 2020 election.
