HERITAGE FOUNDATION: “How Modern Liberals Think”

He’s on to something with his understanding of Liberalism (aka Progressivism) but he comes across as believing that what the US Government does is always right.  For example, he might be right about M. Moore’s methods and motivations, but the goal of stopping a war with Iraq was a good one.  That was an immoral war.

“The only way to eliminate bigotry is to eliminate rational thought.”

“In order to eliminate discrimination the modern Liberal has opted to become utterly indiscriminate.”

“[Once you succumb to the ideology of indiscriminateness, you believe]…good is evil and that evil is the victim of good.”

From Killing Kennedy To Kremlin Collusion – Deep State Forced Out Of The Shadows

The intelligence agency fog both obscures and corrodes. An ever increasing number of Americans believe that a shadowy Deep State pulls the strings. Most major stories since World War II—Korea, Vietnam, Kennedy’s assassination, foreign coups, the 1960s student unrest, civil rights agitation, and civic disorder, Watergate, Iran-Contra, 9/11, domestic surveillance, and many more—have intelligence angles. However, determining what those angles are plunges you into the miasma perpetuated by the agencies and their media accomplices.

Nothing In Any Conspiracy Theory Is As Bad As What’s Being Done Out In The Open

Even if Mueller’s investigation did somehow prove that Trump colluded with the Russian government to steal the 2016 election (and it won’t), that act would still have been far less horrible than the ongoing cold war escalations that this administration has been continually advancing against a nuclear superpower.

I would like to point out that Trump wanted to normalize relations with Russia, but the Russian Collusion accusation and general Russo-phobia being pushed by the elite establishment have backed Trump into a corner.  Any attempt to treat Russia decently is immediately raised as an example of Trump being Putin’s puppet.

If we could see with fresh eyes what is being done to us and our fellow man right out in the open, we would recoil and fall to the ground trembling in sheer terror.

Kid Rock Fired from Nashville Christmas Parade… But Plans to Show Up to Lead It Anyway

This should be interesting.  I support Kid Rock showing up.  He did nothing wrong except speak his mind, and what he said wasn’t that bad.  He called some tv celebrity a bitch.  Not the best word to use on live TV, but meh.
