The Bachelor Goes Full Woke

I have always hated ABC’s The Bachelor and its various spin offs of The Bachelorette, Bachelor in Paradise, and Bachelor Olympics. The latter three are

Americans Should Boycott Coca Cola

The simple fact is, whether we like it or not, the culture war is raging around us and we need to fight it now. These anti-racism seminars are just products of the cancel culture Red Guard.

Joe Biden Held Hostage – Day 34

The administration is behaving as if they’re working to a deadline. Could it be that they’re trying to get as much done as possible before Joe inevitably blows up his own presidency?

The Stalinist Purge of the American Military

With Biden’s Stalinist purge of the military, it might become yet another leftist institution that conservatives aren’t welcome in and actively works to help the Democrats, as is already the case with our universities, courts, executive agencies, and media.

Why Not Make the Minimum Wage $150 Per Hour?

If economic growth would jump with a bump to $15, what’s stopping us from making it $150 so we can see an economic boom? The issue, of course, is that there are substantial negative consequences to increasing the minimum wage.

Never Bow to the Woke Mob

We must fight the culture war right now and with everything we’ve got. The woke mob knows no bounds and will destroy us and our nation if we don’t fight back against it.

Impeachment 2.0 in Perspective

We’ve just finished another week of uniquely Washington asininity.  China is threatening Taiwan.  Gas prices are going up.  Unemployment isn’t going down.  Another migrant caravan is on the way.  COVID-19

CDC/NFL Publish Revealing Wuhan Virus Paper

Why did the NFL mandate masks on its sidelines? If sweaty, bleeding players engaged in hand-to-hand battles did not spread the virus, why in the world would merely standing on a sideline be any more dangerous?

Republicans Who Attack Donald Trump: How Should We Respond?

Trying to drown out the voices of dissenting conservative voices will not help the conservative cause. Democrats like to claim they have a “big tent,” one that is tolerant of a variety of views. That claim is a lie, of course, and Republicans need to show them how it’s done.

Prayer v. Marxism

That idea of a higher power, above the government, above a king, is the real beginning of our nation. It’s the core reason Marxism hates religion: no person is subordinate in the eyes of God.

The Twitter Censorship Will Be an Unending Assault on Free Speech

It is only by reducing the number of active Twitter accounts that we can successfully fight back. That will hit them in the pocketbook and either a competitor like Parler will become the more attractive alternative, or Twitter will have to permanently return its policies to their original free state.

The Art of Being Offended

I am offended because I have to qualify everything, every utterance and act, because people who don’t know me will make presumptions about my character if I am not sufficiently woke or apologetic. We used to call that prejudice.

More Thoughts on Race

There are many causes of today’s unrest, but skin color isn’t one of them. There is a causal racism in our criminal justice system, and it’s not the cops.

12 Woke Companies to Avoid

This list of 12 woke companies to avoid is designed to be possible, as I offer sound alternative products/services for each company, and also strike at the worst offenders, rather than just leftist companies generally.

Impeachment Reach, Big Tech Targets, and General Observations of the Week

With impeachment and the impending Senate trial, Democrats will keep Trump and the riots on the front burner of our national dialogue longer than they would have been otherwise, and they will try to get as much of their radical agenda through as possible. But hoping to distract voters from the absurdity of issues like Medicare-For-All and the repealing of tax cuts by dwelling on Donald Trump won’t work. And unless they can get questionable Democrats in the Senate to abolish the filibuster, their radical agenda is largely doomed anyway.

As the Culture War Rages, Opportunity Knocks

We’re in a culture war that’s just beginning to heat up, and we should act accordingly. And while our opponents may have a massive head start on us, that gap is ripe with opportunity for conservative businesses to fill the subsequent voids.

China Owns America: The Shameful Auctioning Off of America’s Power

A deep sense of malaise seems to have settled over America. Our politicians, from Biden at the top to lowly state-level bureaucrats like Georgia’s Secretary of State Raffensberger, are corrupt and sneer at us plebes for pointing to their corruption as evidence that they’re not our betters and that China owns America and its politicians. The media lies to us.

Mainstream Media, the Enemy of the People? Trump was Right

The only way for citizens in a republic to hold their elected officials accountable is at the ballot box. Do a good job with integrity and you get reelected. Do a lousy job or engage in corruption and you get voted out. That answerability is the most critical aspect of our form of government, and an honest media that accurately reports the facts regarding those who would be elected is arguably the most important player in the electoral process.

Music City Musing, Georgia Jostling, and General Observations of the Week

What has to be a questionable strategy, however, is the amount of Hollywood celebrities who have weighed-in on the races in support of the Democrats. If you’re a Georgia voter and you see Kevin Bacon, Kyra Sedgwick and Justin Timberlake giving their opinions on who you should vote for, unless you’re a under the age of twenty-three there should be only one thought in your mind – “Shut the hell up, Hollywood.”

With Friends Like These, Who Needs Enemies?

Whatever issues they have betrayed or deserted Trump on, the worst betrayals have come recently. Between their handling of voter fraud claims and the COVID relief bill, Republican politicians have shown themselves to be horrible friends of the conservative movement.

Will You Bend the Knee? Or Will You Stand Up and Live Free?

Americans have grown dangerously accustomed to tyranny as of late. Whether that tyranny’s source is the incompetent federal government’s agents, such as Dr. Fauci, tyranny from hypocritical blue state governors, or the tyrannical actions of the Big Tech monopolies, Americans don’t resist anymore. They just bend the knee and go along with it.

Qualifications of Mayor Pete – There’s Only One, And That’s All He Needs

We need safe highways and efficient air traffic control, which means we need Buttigieg to do well. Pete Buttigieg’s sexual orientation has nothing to do with his job performance, but that is, after all, the entire point. Neither Pete Buttigieg nor anyone else should be turned down for a job just because they are gay, but they shouldn’t be hired strictly for that reason either.

Quiet on Cuomo, the Electoral College Elects, and General Observations of the Week

Forget that tens of thousands have died due to Cuomo’s utter incompetence with COVID, and forget that he’s an overall lousy governor; Cuomo is unassailable. If indisputable evidence were to come out tomorrow proving Cuomo barbecues puppies and prefers them medium-rare and served with hollandaise sauce, the mainstream media would simply shrug their shoulders and ignore it.

Blue State Hypocrisy: 15 Democrats Who Don’t Follow Their Own Rules

The Democrat hypocrites create stricter and stricter rules to deal with the phantom menace of COVID but then refuse to follow those rules themselves. Democrat mayors and governors shut down small businesses, didn’t let spouses and children mourn the passing of loved ones, ruined the academic experience of millions of students, and wrecked the dreams of many more millions of Americans.

E Pluribus Etiam Magis – From Many, Even More… Just Ask Jill Biden’s Defenders

Franklin and our other Founding Fathers understood the importance of being unified, and they asserted that such unification must be centered on common values shared by all Americans. Almost two-and-a-half centuries later, however, our friends on the Left appear hell bent on division, not unity. Separating us by inherent traits is the objective, and identity politics is the tactic. Common values be damned.

North Korea & COVID – Communism in Action

Make no mistake: it may appear that many in today’s Democratic Party are merely flirting with socialism, but communism itself is a natural progression. And if the outright embrace of socialism is not yet mainstream ideology for Democrats, it’s not far off.

Feds Hunting Hunter, Swallwell Called Out, and General Observations of the Week

For those that argue a scandal with Hunter doesn’t equate to a scandal for Joe, consider what the media’s coverage would be if the situation was reversed. What if we found out this week that those old accusations against Donald Trump Jr being nefariously involved with Russian characters weren’t just imaginary infractions, but were indeed being investigated by the Justice Department and a Senate Committee?

The Abortion Debate: Yes, Men Should and Must Weigh-In

Motherhood may be the single-most beautiful example of God, of nature, and of humanity. It is the very essence of love. Childbirth and motherhood are simply magical, and they are a blessing that can only be experienced by women. Men can never experience what mothers do. Instead, we are left to marvel at the miracle of motherhood and to do everything we can to support and protect it.

And Just Like That, Government Begins Rationing Healthcare

Grandma might have been the red herring during the coronavirus shaming, but she is certainly not of concern to Democrats under their new proposals. Unless she lives in a retirement home, it is hard to see how she would be deemed essential to anyone other than you.

My Experience With Coronavirus

I recently became infected with the Chinese coronavirus. Along with the vast number of Americans, I also recovered. I have never doubted the veracity of the virus’s existence, and my family’s conditions were genuinely real, but it is hard to reconcile my experience with the public panic wrought by corrupted media and political personalities. Was this why my friends refuse to get together or why my country is panicking worse than the lawyer in Jurassic Park when he scampers off to the Porta-Potty?

Calling All Masculinists – Unite Against Systemic Sexism

In the midst of all the hubbub this past summer, as our comrades from AntiFa engaged in their peaceful riots, one aspect of American injustice that continued unchecked and without mention from our allies in the mainstream media was the mounting problem of systemic sexism. Everywhere we look, the problem of men being discriminated against and mistreated not only persists, but grows.

Biden Resigning, Female Football, and General Observations of the Week

We can debate about what Good Ole’ Joe was trying to say, but there’s one thing that the exchange illustrates perfectly and of which we can be totally clear: Joe Biden’s mindset. Biden is not going to govern as a moderate and he is not going to be a barrier between the radical left and the center of his party. Joe Biden will be completely malleable.

First Obama, Now Harris – Can We Say America’s Not Racist Yet?

Undoubtedly, America’s past is not perfect, but we have consistently taken steps to right our wrongs. Those steps have resulted in the election of racial minorities to the highest offices in our country becoming commonplace. No, America is not racist, but we are instead showing the rest of the world once again what true freedom and equality looks like. God bless America.

Top 10 Worst Television “Journalists”

#4 Brian Stelter (AKA Cryin’ Brian) –
Until recently, Stelter was best known for frequent on-air sobbing at a level to make even colleague Don Lemon blush. But in late-October, Stelter gained further notoriety when he came to the defense of fellow CNN personality Jeffery Toobin. Toobin, as you may recall, was caught spanking his monkey during a Zoom call with colleagues from CNN and The New Yorker. So what was Stelter’s defense of Toobin? Stelter explained that Toobin’s behavior was “an accident.” Yup, because that type of thing happens all the time, don’t you know. One minute, everything is fine, you’re on a Zoom call interacting with folks, and then wham! All of sudden, you’re choking your chicken… accidentally.

Weekend Conversation – The GOP Approach Moving Forward

“One of my biggest frustrations with George W. Bush was his reluctance to confront adversaries and hold them accountable, including those in the media. Both John McCain and Mitt Romney were infuriating in the way they always tried to play nice with Democrats, and not make waves. As mentioned, and I think we both agree, the GOP needs to be respectful and avoid the personal hit-jobs the Democrats like to employ. But I think there’s a valuable lesson to be learned in the way Trump hit back.”

So, Joe, You Say You Want To Unify Us…

While Mr. Biden was ranting about something called “badacathcare” a few weeks ago, many of us scratched our heads in confusion. But earlier in the election cycle when Biden famously lectured, “You ain’t black,” his message was unmistakable, and it certainly wasn’t unifying. Similarly, when Biden was reminiscing about his past kids rubbed his hairy legs earlier in the campaign, many of us reflected on Biden’s more recent history, such as that time he preached “Mitt Romney’s gonna put y’all back in chains.” That statement wasn’t very unifying either. But let’s put that all behind us now, because Joe Biden has pledged to bring us together, and we all know that Good Ole’ Joe is a man of his word.

College Kids are Coming Home for Thanksgiving – It’s Time for Some Deprogramming

We’re in the midst of a mass exodus of college students heading home for the Thanksgiving holiday. They are our sons and daughters, brothers and sisters, friends and cousins. Many of them will have endured three months of leftist indoctrination in the faux-reality that is academia. The Left tends to disparage our country and its history, paint a rosy picture of socialism/communism, and demonize anyone who dares to disagree. We should expect that such an approach has probably been applied to the still-developing minds of those returning young scholars we love so dearly.

Release the Kraken, COVID Vaccines, and General Observations of the Week

Whatever voting irregularities, improprieties, and fraud occurred, we need to get to the bottom of them. Expose the perpetrators, prosecute them, and imprison them; no doubt. But getting our hopes up for something that looks increasingly unlikely to happen is not helping anyone. Knock of the hyperbole, tell us the facts, and give them to us straight.

Trump Was A Lousy Fascist

Of all the despicable actions taken against President Trump, nothing is more disgusting than the incessant assertion that he was Hitler reincarnated. Will anyone ever own up to the fact that this was a patently ugly and insidious lie?

Government Incompetence: The Real Pandemic of 2020

In my view, if the COVID pandemic of 2020 has highlighted one thing, it’s that government incompetence is just as alive now as always.
Now, to be clear, I’m not referring to the Trump Administration’s response to COVID. What Trump did once it became clear that China had lied and Americans were dying was rely on the federalist system that our Founders designed.
He left it to the states to do what they saw fit based on their unique situations and populations. When they needed supplies, he used the resources of the federal government to get them needed medical supplies and resources. Hence why both Gavin Newsom and Governor Cuomo thanked Trump for what he gave them.

AOC Wants a List of Trump Supporters. What Will She Do with It?

That should send chills down your spine. Not because Antifa is frightening; it’s not, it’s just a gang of underweight soy boys. No, it’s frightening because it means a member of the Democratic Party is planning on creating a blacklist of millions of Americans and then using Antifa, an armed group, to go harass those Americans. That is beyond the pale for America.

Weekend Conversation – Did Donald J. Trump Indeed ‘Make America Great Again?’

In this installment of Weekend Conversations, PF Whalen of The Blue State Conservative and Parker Beauregard of The Last Best Hope examine the level of success achieved by President Donald J. Trump in his effort to ‘Make America Great Again.’ At the time of our correspondence, the election results are still unclear, therefore the contents of this conversation can be considered as either a halftime analysis or a single-term evaluation.

In Defense of Big Pharma

It’s human nature to want to benefit financially from hard work, risk and innovation. There are thousands of scientists and corporate executives who are millionaires because they were responsible for the development of life-saving medicines. Not only should we congratulate them on their financial success, we should collectively shake their hands, and say, “Thank you, and may God bless you.”

It’s Time To Dramatically Increase the Penalty for Election Fraud

If we can’t trust an election’s results, how can we trust the government that election yields? This was a point that was frequently made during the Russia Hoax, and one that would have been justifiable if there had been any validity to their accusations. Any democracy needs to have faith in the integrity of their elections, and failure to achieve that trust will only sow increasing resentment and skepticism. Regardless of that fact, those who should care don’t, and choose instead to brush off the idea as if it was just dandruff on their overcoat; nothing to see here, folks.

Win Or Lose, Trump Saved America

Likewise, the Trump victory exposed the many frauds that used to masquerade as Republicans. These people quickly emerged as the Never Trumpers and it was clear that they had grown accustomed to their dance with Democrats. In reality, they were not far apart from Democrats. They always held the same elitist philosophy, they knew they were smarter and more sophisticated than the rubes that voted for them. Political affiliations just gave them power and influence over a different group of people.

Even The Government Acknowledges Men and Women Are NOT The Same

The phrase “listen to the science” needs to be retired. It is obvious that the people who shout the loudest to have science “listened to” are simply advocating for a political position, and since science has a better track record throughout history (but fast losing ground with mask claims, climate change assertions, etc.), than leftism, it makes sense that they are trying to win over new followers via this approach.

Presidential Uncertainty, a GOP Senate and General Observations of the Week

In spite of four years of the mainstream media accusing Trump of every form of bigotry imaginable, Trump saw his percentage of voters increase in every demographic but one – white men. Blacks, Hispanics, women, LGBTQ members, and so on; every other group saw an elevation in the percentage of Trump voters in 2020 compared to 2016, in spite of the fierce efforts to smear him. Remarkable.

The Mainstream Media’s COVID Cover-up Continues

The Left and their media can’t afford to have President Trump’s positions legitimized. If someone comes out and backs Trump’s COVID-19 plans, the media have to cover it up. They have to discredit them, even if that means winking and nodding to Joe Biden’s absurd claim that 44,000 scientists/doctors are “nobody.”

When Democrats Hate What They Vote For

According to most reports, roughly 63 million Americans tuned in for the final presidential debate held on October 22. Millions more read coverage in the following days. There is no excuse for being unaware of what Biden not only said, but what he intends to do if he is elected.

Goliath was a Chump Compared to What Trump has Fought Against

If Donald J. Trump wins reelection today, it will make David’s defeat of Goliath look like a foregone conclusion. “Goliath got his ass kicked,” said the Philistine, “big deal.” Never in American history has a presidential candidate faced such committed, sustained, and malicious opposition from such formidable opponents. One could credibly argue that a Trump victory would be nothing short of miraculous considering the headwinds against which our 45th President has struggled. Buster Douglas defeating Mike Tyson was ho-hum compared to Trump’s challenges. Harry Truman’s defeat of Thomas Dewey was a walk in the park.
