Six Reasons Conservatives Should Believe the Defeat of Amendment 8 Was Correct

Six Reasons Conservatives Should Believe the Defeat of Amendment 8 Was Correct

September 11, 2018
As the Florida Supreme Court considered and ultimately removed Amendment 8, the education constitutional amendment, from the November ballot, there was a debate occurring among Florida conservatives over both the wording and the merits of the proposal.
Part of the amendment allowed entities other than duly elected school boards, to authorize education alternatives, charter schools being chief among them. Some well-meaning conservatives have been arguing that opposition to Amendment 8 was limited only to liberals. These conservatives also said that opposition to Amendment 8 was a “vote for the status quo” where half of students, especially poor students, can’t read at grade level.
The truth is that there were many Floridians who opposed Amendment 8 specifically and are concerned about the rapid expansion of charter schools for conservative reasons. Here are the six most important:

Why Technology Favors Tyranny

Why Technology Favors Tyranny

Artificial intelligence could erase many practical advantages of democracy, and erode the ideals of liberty and equality. It will further concentrate power among a small elite if we don’t take steps to stop it.
"Currently, humans risk becoming similar to domesticated animals. We have bred docile cows that produce enormous amounts of milk but are otherwise far inferior to their wild ancestors. They are less agile, less curious, and less resourceful. We are now creating tame humans who produce enormous amounts of data and function as efficient chips in a huge data-processing mechanism, but they hardly maximize their human potential. If we are not careful, we will end up with downgraded humans misusing upgraded computers to wreak havoc on themselves and on the world."


Ed: This article is a brilliant analysis of the technocracy threat that is now being handled by all the forces we mistrust for the exploitation of our markets.

Washington Has Never Seen Anything Like Donald Trump

Washington Has Never Seen Anything Like Donald Trump

by Rush Limbaugh - Aug 17,2018

The liberal order which still dominates the American pop culture and the American media, it’s decades old, and it has had no opposition. These are the people that have — to one degree or another — been running the country. And they are embedded throughout the bureaucracy that is Washington, D.C. They’re everywhere in there. And many of them are career people. And their loyalty is to that. Their loyalty is to that — even military people. You know, we’ve discussed this.

(What’s Left of) Our Economy: Trump Metals Tariffs Coverage has Just (Again) Been Exposed as Largely Fake News

(What’s Left of) Our Economy: Trump Metals Tariffs Coverage has Just (Again) Been Exposed as Largely Fake News

Sunday 05 Aug 2018

In case you still think that President Trump’s charges of fake news-peddling by the national news media are fake news themselves, consider this: For the second time in two months, if you decided to hold your breath till you found a Mainstream Media item reporting that the America’s metals-using industries have been major job-creation leaders, not laggards, you’d have died.
Such omissions are especially important because since the Trump administration began imposing tariffs on steel and aluminum imports (in March), the media has been filled not only with predictions of massive employment and production losses in metals-using manufacturing (because the prices of two noteworthy inputs for these industries was bound to rise), but with accounts of actual economic damage that numerous companies in these sectors have already suffered. (See hereand here for just two examples.)

I really dislike politics at all levels for obvious reasons.  However, just like those in the past, this election cycle has some interesting races happening of which I am focusing this article on two that are taking place on my home turf.
At least for me, the race for Florida Governor ended on Thursday, June 28, 2018 during the televised debate; Part 1Part 2Part 3Part 4.  I have to admit that I hadn’t really been following it too closely and for no reason that I can point my finger at, I had been leaning towards Adam Putnam.
Where does one begin..?  I guess I should start with Adam’s siding up with “Big Sugar.”  While I understand the economic importance of “Big Sugar” in Florida, I detest and abhor the thought of any politician being beholden to any corporate interest.

Understanding the War against the West

Understanding the War against the West

Written by   | June 28, 2018

As we celebrate the 242nd anniversary of this nation’s declaration of independence from Great Britain, perhaps it is useful and productive to reflect on some issues that continue to deeply affect us as a country in 2018.

Trump-Bashing Will Sink GOP Establishment's Adam Putnam

Trump-Bashing Will Sink GOP Establishment's Adam Putnam

By Steve Hantler
May 30, 2018
It was likely always going to be an uphill battle for establishment candidate Adam Putnam in the race for Florida governor.  Yes, the state commissioner of agriculture has raised a lot of money from special interests in Tallahassee, but as we’ve seen in recent history, no amount of money can paper over a problematic record that, in Putnam’s case, includes support for amnesty (both the Arlen Specter-sponsored immigration bill in 2006 and the so-called Gang of 8 measure in 2013), opposition to E-Verify, support for the $700 billion bailout of Wall Street banks, voting with Nancy Pelosi for the Obama “cash for clunkers” program and supporting a massive expansion of federal authority over K-12 education, which laid the groundwork for Common Core. 
But what really will be responsible for sinking Putnam’s candidacy is the hostility he has demonstrated toward President Trump.  This hostility is not just the typical behavior...

SSN: Maggy Hurchalla Drops a Bomb in Lake Point Appeal

Maggy Hurchalla Drops a Bomb in Lake Point Appeal

June 20, 2018 
Environmental activist Maggy Hurchalla's appeal of a $4.3 million judgment by a Martin County jury on Feb. 14 has not gone well for her. At least, not until now.
Now Hurchalla, a former longtime county commissioner and one of Martin County's most prominent citizens, says she has evidence the jury foreman in the Lake Point Restoration tortious interference case against her was not a Martin County resident, as required by law -- grounds for a mistrial.
The Fourth District Court of Appeal has denied or dismissed most of Hurchalla's motions, including a previous request for a new trial, in case she lost in Martin County Circuit Court.

The Federalist: Jordan Peterson Lights Up The Right With Rational Explanations Of Why Tradition Matters

Jordan Peterson Lights Up The Right With Rational Explanations Of Why Tradition Matters

What makes Jordan Peterson’s message importantly different and provocative is not the content of his advice and rules, but rather the manner and strength of his rationale.

Editor: It's a real shame that essays of this importance on this subject seem to attract the most questionable "intellects" in the commentary section of their Blog post. It makes one think that there is some sort of strategy afoot to de-ligitimize the thoughts behind these posts. But that in itself surely smacks of "conspiricy theory." Maybe a reluctance to swallow the party line is common to both the extreme fringe and the patriot. 

We firmly disavow any and all of the anti-semitic rants exhibited in the comment section.

Gatestone Institute - British 'Justice': Poppycock

British 'Justice': Poppycock


  • Instead of arresting rapists, the police, in at least a couple of cases, actually arrested people who had done nothing other than to try to rescue their children from the clutches of rapists.
  • So much concern – legitimately so – about the sacred right of the rapists to a fair trial, including the presumption of innocence and an opportunity to retain the lawyers of their choice – but so much readiness to excuse the denial of the same right to Robinson.
  • These decades of cover-ups by British officials are themselves unspeakable crimes. How many of those who knew, but who did nothing, have faced anything remotely resembling justice? Apparently none.
  • As any viewer of British TV news knows, a "trained professional journalist" in Britain observes all kinds of rules of professional conduct: he calls Muslims "Asians," he describes any critic of Islam, or anyone who attends a rally protesting the unjust incarceration of a critic of Islam, as a member of the "far right," and he identifies far-left smear machines as "anti-racist groups."
