Why we’re adding Breitbart back to the mix… for now

Published

on

When we first launched this website, we did so to be a counterbalance against two powerful right-leaning news forces: Drudge and Breitbart. Both were very much in the back pocket of then-candidate Donald Trump, attacking conservative candidates like Ted Cruz and making excuses for every liberal or idiotic notion proposed by their chosen one.

Things have changed. Drudge has been subdued in recent weeks, spending less space promoting Trump’s agenda but also ignoring stories that damage him; currently, Sebastian Gorka’s resignation/termination is conspicuously absent from the site, for example. That’s not to say we won’t call them out when they lurch left or promote an alt-right agenda, but for the most part they’ve been under the radar for a while.

Breitbart is different. There’s always been conflict about how to handle the site because of the diversity of thought. It’s easy to take left-wing propaganda sites like HuffPo or Buzzfeed and ridicule their attempts to manipulate minds through spun narratives, but sites like Breitbart are different. Sometimes, they’re posting outrageous articles that do damage to the small-government, freedom loving movement embodied by federalism. Other times they are on the right side of the argument, often leading the discussion and boldly exploring topics from angles others wouldn’t touch.

The removal of Steve Bannon and Sebastian Gorka from the White House and their subsequent returns to Breitbart are interesting. While both still represent a destructive element in conservatism – namely the “alt-right” – they are also correct on some issues. Moreover, they seem to be the “MAGA purists” that compelled so many people to vote for Donald Trump in the first place.

To be perfectly clear, our mission at The New Americana has not changed. We want to promote conservative and federalist messages to the masses in an effort to educate the general population about the need to rein in DC. We do not support Republicans or Democrats. We support America, which means that we will call out members of either party when they push for expanding DC’s overreach and we will cheer them on when they shrink government to fit better inside the Constitution.

We haven’t changed, but Breitbart might. We’re willing to give them that chance. If they’re going to focus on being defenders of freedoms, calling out corruption and government expansion in DC, we will post those stories. If it turns out they’re going to continue to be a mouthpiece for the Trump agenda of growing DC, economic isolationism, and alt-right principles, we’ll take them off just as quickly.

Bannon and Gorka learned that embracing a lifetime liberal Democrat as their vehicle for change was stupid. What they couldn’t do from within Trump’s swamp of Ivanka, Kushner, Tillerson, and Mnuchin, perhaps they’ll be able to do from Breitbart. In the coming weeks, we’ll learn whether Breitbart is an ally to the small-government federalist cause or not.

    I will watch with a very skeptical eye. The alt right has never been a Conservative or Constitutional element of the GOP. They are weak minded populists and in many cases blatant white nationalists. Steve Bannon intentionally gave them a platform. The cause of Liberty cannot be advanced by those who would deny the Liberty of others.

      I’m not hopeful, but willing to give it a chance. Won’t take long. Will reevaluate next week.

    As much as I would love to have the Breitbart of old, I cannot follow links to the Breitbart of today. They’ve done too much damage to conservatism and have become a home to those to far too many anti-semites.

      Chances are pretty strong that we’ll come to the same exact conclusion. Funny… we were searching for good stories today and came up with exactly zero. Not giving up, but not hopeful.

Hey, Jeff Flake! The GOP is already toast!

Hey Jeff Flake The GOP is already toast

At a tax-reform event held in Arizona over the weekend, soon-to-be ex-Senator Jeff Flake was caught on a hot mic whining about the imminent death of the GOP. Speaking to his good friend, Mesa Mayor John Giles, Flake said “If we become the party of Roy Moore and Donald Trump, we are toast.”

Unfortunately for Flake, his analysis is a day late and a dollar short. The GOP has pretty much been toast ever since Ronald Reagan’s last day in office. That’s when RINOs took over the party and turned it over to big-government Republicans like George H. W. Bush, George W. Bush, Mitch McConnell, and John Boehner.

Ever since Ronnie rode off into the California sunset, conservative values have been relegated to the dustbin of broken campaign promises only to be conveniently brought out every election season to steal money and votes.

Flake’s statement is wrong for a few more reasons: Roy Moore is a threat to people like Flake because he is running against the establishment, and the GOP has already become the party of Donald Trump.

For example, before he decided to pass on re-election next year, polls showed Flake was already likely to lose in the primary to Kelli Ward, who’s running as a Trumplican. Trumplicanism has replaced conservatism as the new identity of the Republican Party as it embraces all things Trump under the mistaken belief that his populist brand of politics is what defines conservatism today.

This sad reality is a direct result of RINOs like Jeff Flake.

Ironically, Flake confirmed the importance of the conservative values he long abandoned with the release of his book earlier this year, “Conscience of a Conservative,” a title essentially plagiarized from a book written by the man credited with reigniting the conservative movement back in the 1960’s, Barry Goldwater.

Because it’s election season, Flake hoped his book could be a sort of get-out-of-RINO-jail-free card as he attempted to at least give the appearance that he was the conservative we all know he isn’t. But hey, if you’re going to write about something you know absolutely nothing about, steal the words of someone who did, right?

Jeff Flake blames everyone but himself and his fellow RINOs for the sorry state of the GOP, but these lying liars are fully responsible for the rise of Donald Trump and the Trumplican Party.

The good news is that the GOP is already toast. Let’s replace it with a true conservative party.

Zimbabwe’s Robert Mugabe has agreed to resign. Update: He didn’t.

Zimbabwes Robert Mugabe has agreed to resign source

Update

Once again, Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe has defied calls for his resignation, allowing a deadline set by his party to pass without a word.

Zimbabwe crisis: Deadline passes for Mugabe to quit as party leader

http://www.bbc.com/news/world-africa-42048412Members of Zimbabwe’s ruling Zanu-PF party are preparing to meet to discuss the possible impeachment of President Robert Mugabe, after a deadline for his resignation came and went on Monday.

The deadline was set by Mr Mugabe’s own party, Zanu-PF.

The embattled leader surprised Zimbabweans on Sunday, declaring on TV that he planned to remain as president.

Original Story

Reports came in yesterday that Zimbabwe’s President Robert Mugabe would be stepping down instead of going through impeachment, but in a speech on state-run television he did not step down. Now, a new report is coming in that he has agreed to step down, having drafted a resignation letter.

As has been the case for nearly four decades with the tyrannical strongman, reports about him are subject to change. ZANU-PF, the party that he led until yesterday afternoon when they removed him, have given him until noon today (5am EST) to resign or they will request impeachment. The parliament does not meet on Mondays, so if he doesn’t step down he likely won’t be tried until the next day.

Based upon information from a CNN source, the leader has reached an agreement that would give him full immunity and allow him to keep his possessions.

Charles Manson is dead

Charles Manson is dead

The satanic ringleader behind several gruesome murders in California in 1969, Charles Manson, has died of natural causes Sunday, one week after his birthday. He was 83.

Over a five-week period in the summer of 1969, Manson’s minions carried out nine murders attached to his orders. Even after his incarceration, as many as 35 murders were committed by members of his cult. Though Manson did not participate directly in the murders, his leadership of the cult that killed on his orders earned him the death penalty. His sentence was commuted to nine life sentences when California annulled death sentences issued before 1972. He was sentenced in 1971 and spent 46 years in jail, costing tax-payers millions of dollars.

Charles Manson, mastermind of 1969 murders, dies at 83

http://beta.latimes.com/local/obituaries/la-me-charles-manson-20171119-story.htmlManson did not commit the murders himself; instead he persuaded his group of followers to carry out the killings. The crimes received frenzied news coverage, because so many lurid and sensational elements coalesced at the time — Hollywood celebrity, cult behavior, group sex, drugs and savage murders that concluded with the killers scrawling words with their victims’ blood.

Los Angeles residents were terrified by the crimes. Before the killers were apprehended, gun sales and guard dog purchases skyrocketed and locksmiths had weeks-long waiting lists. Numerous off-duty police officers were hired to guard homes in affluent neighborhoods and security firms tripled in size.

https://nypost.com/2017/11/20/mass-murderer-charles-manson-dead-at-83/Manson — who infamously wore a swastika tattoo between his eyebrows — had spent more than 45 years in prison after being convicted of directing his “Manson Family” clan of troubled, mostly female, followers to kill seven people in California in the summer of 1969. The dead included actress Sharon Tate, the pregnant wife of director Roman Polanski, who was stabbed 16 times.

“I am crime,” Manson proudly proclaimed during a collect call to The Post from prison in the mid-2000s.

Obituary: Charles Manson

http://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-36091052When his mother was paroled in 1942 she lived with her eight-year-old son in a series of dilapidated rooms before unsuccessfully applying to a court to have him fostered. Instead he was placed in a Catholic boys’ home from which he ran away after just 10 months.

Manson’s robbery of an off-licence marked the beginning of a series of crimes, including armed robbery, and subsequent incarcerations in a number of institutions.
