The ‘SI Swimsuit edition’ is a perfect ‘illustration’ [pardon the pun] of why one needs bedrock principles.
For a moment, imagine the editorial meeting on the upcoming Sports Illustrated “Swim Suit” issue. Someone comes up with the brilliant idea of going after the premise of women as pure sex objects by making women pure sex objects – but with grease paint. After a brief, awkward silence a sycophant in true echo chamber style agrees with the concept with everyone else chimes in with approbation over the sheer genius of the idea.
This is what happens when there is no sane voice in the room that points out the sheer absurdity of the such a suggestion and steers the meeting back to more reasonable topics. It is (almost literally) the modern version of the emperor’s new clothes, a new cautionary tale of what happens under extreme groupthink. The ‘me too’ movement is now imploding in on itself because it has no real direction or guiding principles.
Two Different Revolutions, Two Different Outcomes.
Now, compare the results of the American and French revolutions with the impact of one having underlying principles to keep things on an even keel. The magnificent words of the Declaration of Independence penned by Thomas Jefferson set the framework for the new nation keeping subsequent events from spinning out of control. Such was not the case with the tragic results of the French revolution for want of bedrock moral code to keep mobile vulgus at bay.
It should be clearly evident that recent events have reaffirmed that one must have a set of guiding principles or be at risk of suffering the same consequences that have afflicted all too many of the past.
Everything from the current budget deal that is being opposed by the House Freedom Caucus as reported on The Right Scoop to the gift to the Socialist-Left Media of the possibly of having an Illinois Nazi run as a Republican in the state’s Third Congressional [and ‘very Democratic’] District as reported by the New York Times. Its location that includes part of Chicago should mean the man doesn’t have a chance. But that won’t stop the national Media from endlessly smearing the GOP with the story.
Guiding Principles are key to a political party’s continued success.
Following a clearly articulated set of Conservative values would hold such circumstances at bay. The basic principles set forth in our nation’s founding documents of individual rights, limited government, and free enterprise. Or as presented by The Federalist party.
Holding on to such principles will keep us from digging ourselves into the budgetary hole we presently find ourselves. It will also short-circuit the media’s obsession with connecting us with a group of Socialists. There is a reason why they are labeled a platform or guiding principles, they are the foundational constructs of what we stand for, and what we oppose.

They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
