Thanks to spineless conservatives, DACA is about to be saved

Published

on

In yesterday’s Conservative Conscience podcast, Daniel Horowitz shared how the recently passed “Willie Horton jailbreak bill” by the GOP-controlled House is the latest example of why conservatives are losing the war against liberals like Trump’s son-in-law and Senior Advisor, Jared Kushner, who was the force behind the so-called “prison reform” legislation.

The reason for this sad state of conservative affairs, according to Horowitz, is the lack of leadership from so-called conservatives who have elected to make decisions based on their political self-interests instead of the values they claim to share with us.

I completely agree with his conclusion.

Outside of the jailbreak bill, these faux conservatives are joining hands with Republican “moderates” on another important issue—immigration. For example, last week Rep. Mark Meadows of the House Freedom Caucus led a revolt to block passage of a major farm policy authorization bill. Not because it was bad policy, but because Mark and his gang wanted the House to vote on fixing DACA first—a vote which could be coming up very soon.

Blue state Republicans and the Democrats they love are attempting to get enough signatures on a discharge petition—a majority is required—to force a DACA vote by the full House. This effort is opposed by Speaker Paul Ryan and the man likely to replace him, Kevin McCarthy, not because they disagree with the idea of saving DACA, but because they want to work with Trump to create a bill he will sign—a given since Trump has always favored saving DACA—and they are afraid of backlash at the polls in November.

Too bad they didn’t have those concerns when it came to repealing Obamacare and defunding Planned Parenthood.

Clearly, the GOP has lost its way, and so-called conservatives are doing nothing to get things back on track, a reality Sen. Ben Sasse (R-NE) pointed out yesterday. In an interview with the Washington Examiner, Sasse was asked about the Republican vision concerning trade considering Trump’s disjointed trade policies:

“I don’t know what the Republican party is right now, in general. Much more broadly, it’s hard to articulate a clear Republican vision.”

Actually, the Republican vision is quite clear if you’re talking about the November election because the GOP has “clearly” abandoned conservatives in an attempt to save their jobs.

That’s why conservatives always lose, and it’s why DACA will be saved.

PragerU: Is Denmark socialist?

Is Denmark socialist

Not too long ago, many socialist, including presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, thought the model of the future for America was Venezuela. They saw the prosperity that the oil-rich nation was enjoying in its early days of socialism and said, “That’s us. That’s where America needs to be.”

Fast forward to today and suddenly every socialist is disavowing Venezuela altogether, claiming that the model of America was never really the model they thought it was and it’s not even real socialism. Why? Because it failed. Therefore, by the socialists’ reckoning, that must mean they didn’t do it right.

Now, Denmark is suddenly the model for America’s future. But there’s a problem. Denmark is a free-market nation that has been peeling away at its socialist foundation for decades. While they enjoy some of the most robust social programs in the world, they’re doing so at such a high price that the people are left with very little other than the essentials. Yes, they have free healthcare, but more citizens are turning to private insurance to bypass the poor treatment and long wait times associated with single-payer healthcare. Yes, they have free schooling, but grade-level students are being shifted to private schools at nearly a 20% pace while the “free” college system is being taken advantage of by those who are clever enough to realize they’re better off staying in college indefinitely than graduating and being thrown into the world of working to pay for the system.

This video by PragerU’s Otto Brons-Petersen breaks down the reality of the socialist utopia leftists often point to as their beacon of hope for a failed economic and political philosophy.

Today is Earth Day: Socialists of the world rejoice!

Today is Earth Day Socialists of the world rejoice

Today is Earth Day, or as it is known by socialists and communists around the world, Vladimir Lenin’s birthday.

While there are those who argue that Earth Day falling on Lenin’s birthday was merely a coincidence, a look back at the history of the first Earth Day paints a different picture.

April 22, 1970 was the centennial celebration of Lenin’s birthday (April 22, 1870), a huge deal to the communist movement at the time. Lenin and the communist movements that grew from his ideology were anti-capitalist and preached the evils of profit, corporations, free markets, and the West.

When the communist movement began to collapse in the late 1980’s under Ronald Reagan, many of the disciples of communism around the world found a new home within the radical environmental movement.

The connection environmental extremism has with communism is no coincidence.

Most environmental economists in the 1960s and 1970s believed that only socialist countries were capable of protecting the environment. They believed governments in those countries allegedly acted for the good of all mankind while capitalist countries cared only about profit maximization and gave no regard for the environment.

So, on the 49th anniversary of the first Earth Day — and the 149th birthday of Vladimir Lenin — we shouldn’t be surprised at the growing belief in government-controlled economies and the continuing calls for government ownership of land, water, and natural resources.

We also shouldn’t be surprised at the rising acceptance of socialism over capitalism by the children of those who started the Earth Day movement, nor at the radical policies they are posing in the name of protecting the earth. This is the spirit behind the Green New Deal proposed by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Unfortunately, it’s also the spirit behind the embrace by Republicans and so-called conservatives of a socialist-lite approach to environmental policy. Examples of what this looks like are seen in the Green New Deal “alternatives” being proposed by the GOP in the House and Senate.

And let’s not forget the Democrat with an “R” after his name currently sitting in the White House … or playing golf in Florida. Under the guidance of his defacto climate czar Ivanka, Trump appointed Dr. Kelvin Droegemeier — a radical environmentalist endorsed by former senior advisor under Obama, John Holdren — to lead the office of Science and Technology Policy as his science advisor. Trump’s withdrawal from the Paris Climate Agreement was an in-name-only hoax, and his position on global warming has been all over the map.

Earth Day and socialism are two sides of the same coin. Happy Birthday, Mr. Lenin!

Dan Bongino: The more we find out about Michael Avenatti, the creepier he becomes

Dan Bongino The more we find out about Michael Avenatti the creepier he becomes

One of the best parts about Dan Bongino was noted by Tucker Carlson in the beginning of this video. Bongino is one of the most clear speakers on television with zero “ums, likes, or stutters” as he delivers his vast understanding of the world of politics. He’s easy to listen to, which is important considering how much influence he’s starting to gain in the world of conservative media.

Speaking to Carlson about this crazy week in news, Bongino led off with a very clear truth: porn lawyer Michael Avenatti is as creepy as they get. He’s up there with James Comey on the strangeness scale and he’s beyond Joe Biden on the creepy scale. Nobody comes close on the sleaziness scale.

The funny part, as Bongino points out, is he’s actually been a regularly on most left-leaning shows from lowly podcasts to CNN and MSNBC programs, including… wait for it… Reliable Source. Avenatti is just a punchline now.
