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.
#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.
This article was first published by American Thinker. Aficionados of the CBS sitcom The Big Bang Theory may recall an episode from early in the series in which one of the main characters, Leonard, struggles in his effort to assess his budding romance with another primary character, Penny. Leonard eventually decides to use the famous thought experimentContinue reading “The Left’s Adoption of Schrödinger’s Cat”
“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.”
Topic #1: As it becomes increasingly likely that Joe Biden will indeed be our next President, he has begun the work of assembling his cabinet. Media reports indicate that key nominations/appointments will include – Antony Blinken as Secretary of State, Jake Sullivan as National Security Advisor, and Janet Yellen as Secretary of Treasury. Thoughts andContinue reading “Biden Cabinet, SCOTUS Ruling, and General Observations of the Week”
Al Gore spent sixteen years in Congress, eight years as Vice-President, and the last twenty years as a post-political environmental activist. Memorable moments of Gore’s long career include his claim of “creating the internet,” winning the Nobel Peace Prize for his movie An Inconvenient Truth, and his extraordinarily close Presidential Election loss to George W.Continue reading “Words We Never Thought We’d Say – Can We Have Al Gore Back?”
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.
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.
In this installment of Weekend Conversations, PF Whalen of The Blue State Conservative and Parker Beauregard of The Last Best Hope look back on the coverage – and sometimes lack of coverage – of issues critical to voters. Is this the Republicans version of Russia, Russia, Russia, or is there something more sinister going on?
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.
The effort to shift from in-person voting to mail-in voting was never about protecting citizens from COVID-19. In April, Wisconsin conducted their primary elections with virtually no mail-in voting and over 400,000 folks voted in-person, and COVID-19 cases actually declined in the following weeks.
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.
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.”
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.
In this installment of Weekend Conversations, PF Whalen of The Blue State Conservative and Parker Beauregard of The Last Best Hope explore the tumultuous week of the election. How are votes not counted immediately? How many votes are legitimate? What does this mean for the country? Parker and PF wade into the quagmire.
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 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.”
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.
Let’s use the approach of the Left this month – it’s all about feelings and pointing to problems… no solutions required:

I get the whole “Go to work in flip-flops and hang out by the office ping pong table at lunch” culture that Big Tech has going on. It must be a cool environment to work in, truly. But for those who missed it, Jack Dorsey was channeling his inner Jeff Spicoli during a televised Senate hearing that was watched by millions of people.
Joe Biden is the quintessential Washington D.C. swamp-dweller who is uncompromising in his craving for power . He wants you to think he’s someone else because he has a 47-year record with virtually no accomplishments to tout. He wants you to think he’s someone else because the real Joe Biden is not particularly electable. Don’t be fooled: we know who Joe Biden is, and he’s none of the things he’s pretending to be.
In this installment of Weekend Conversations, PF Whalen of The Blue State Conservative and Parker Beauregard of The Last Best Hope explore the consequences of a second term for President Trump.

Topic #1: Prior to Thursday’s debate performance, Joe Biden was virtually invisible throughout the week, with his campaign staff calling daily “lids” on the media even as the scandal involving his son Hunter’s nefarious involvement in international business dealings continued to evolve. Thoughts and Observations: The Hunter Biden scandal is no joke, and that isContinue reading “Biden is Hidin’, Toobin is Lubin’, and General Observations of the Week”
The media’s indifference to the Jeffery Toobin scandal is just one more example of their aversion to the truth. Engaging in self-abuse while one interacts with their colleagues during a Zoom meeting is repulsive, regardless of whether or not one’s laptop’s camera is functioning, and regardless of how boring that meeting might be.

Topic #1: Both Twitter and Facebook engaged in outrageous censorship of users sharing a New York Post story.

Thoughts and Observations: This week we saw confirmation hearings for theContinue reading “Social Media Censorship, Justice ACB, and General Observations of the Week”
… for those of us on the Right, should we direct the energy of our discussions and debates towards the benefits of conservatism, or should we instead use the “negative approach” and focus on the ills of leftism?
In this installment of Weekend Conversations, PF Whalen of The Blue State Conservative and Parker Beauregard of The Last Best Hope dig into the endless list of leftist hypocrisies.
Topic #1: Last week it was announced that President Trump had tested positive for COVID-19, and he was admitted to Walter Reed Medical Center on Friday, 10/2.

Topic #1: It was announced early Friday that President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump have both tested positive for COVID-19.

But to simply dismiss Biden’s current incompetence as some age-related mental deterioration would be giving his previous mental capacity too much credit. Good ole’ Joe was never very sharp to begin with.

What started out as a legitimate cause, hell bent on holding sexual criminals accountable, has evolved into nothing more than a gang of political opportunists, cherry-picking which sexual predators are worthy of justice, and which ones need to be shielded from it.
