The Nuclear Option

Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders and other progressive minions are adamant that climate change is an existential threat to our country. But if they really believed that, they would support nuclear energy, the only technology that has a track record of rapidly replacing fossil fuels.

Environmentalists in the U.S. rarely support the nuclear option and their opposition can be traced back 40 years to the partial meltdown at Three Mile Island, Pa., where no one died. The incident would have been long forgotten if not for The China Syndrome, a Hollywood flick that said a nuclear accident could burn a hole all the way to China. “People saw that and freaked out,” says environmentalist Joshua Goldstein. He says we’d have more nuclear power if it weren’t for that movie and the media hysteria that followed.

On the other side of the issue is activist Harvey Wasserman, who says it’s an inevitability that another disaster looms in the future. Wasserman and Goldstein join John Stossel to debate the issue.

Americans Finally Waking Up

Bill O’Reilly thinks Americans finally are realizing one of the worst mistakes in U.S. history: giving power to the progressive, Democrat Party. He says Nancy Pelosi’s decision to stop legislation that would pack the Supreme Court is proof that even she knows Americans are waking up to the Left’s radical plans.

But Glenn Beck isn’t so sure. Are Americans really waking up to the dangers of the far Left? Join O’Reilly and Beck in their analysis of the issue.

Denzel Swallows The Red Pill

A-list celebrity Denzel Washington is proving to the Hollywood establishment that he is his own man and won’t be pressured into following any radical movements. Washington proved his mettle recently, when he bucked the progressive messaging from the Left and Black Lives Matter, regarding their anti-cop agenda. There’s no doubt Washington is on the side of law and order, something that can’t be said of most of these Tinseltown pervs. “More and more people are waking up,” Martin Brodel says. “The celebrities who are not have been compromised, heavily so.”

Brodel also reports of the ridiculous restrictions released by the CDC for fans attending the Super Bowl at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, home of the Super Bowl. They released guidelines on chanting, cheering, alcohol limits and, of course, wearing masks at all times. “If you’re dumb enough to go along with all that stupid crap, go for it. Sounds to me like they’re taking all the fun out of it.” Here’s more with Brodel.

How To Drain The Swamp

How exactly do you go about draining The Swamp? First off, says Liz Wheeler, you can’t successfully drain The Swamp, unless you know where it came from.

The former One America News anchor defines The Swamp, or Deep State, as the Administrative State, composed of government employees and officials in agencies of the Executive Branch of federal government, who are not elected, not appointed, have no accountability to voters, are nearly impossible to fire, yet have the power to impose rules and regulations on we the people.

So how did the Deep State get so entrenched in our government? Short answer: Blame the progressives. They attacked our constitutional government’s enshrined view of limited government, beginning with President Woodrow Wilson and his radical ideas, followed by FDR’s  progressive New Deal and President Lyndon Johnson’s Great Society, all which damaged the separation of powers envisioned by our founding fathers and empowered Swamp creatures to rule behind the backs of our elected officials.

Wheeler says firing these leaches won’t solve the problem and neither will one President. The answer to fixing the fundamental problem requires the Legislative Branch to stop delegating power to executive agencies and for the judiciary to reject the Administrative State on a Constitutional basis. Problem is, members of Congress–both Democrats and Republicans–don’t want to drain The Swamp. Here’s more with Wheeler.

Twitter PR Exec Banned Trump

In retrospect, the permanent ban of President Trump from Twitter can be described as a cultural event. Why? Because Trump pretty much lived on Twitter. It was his unique way of expressing his personality by sidestepping the media and perhaps the most powerful method of connecting with his constituents.

But as we contemplate the aftermath of the censorship, looney Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey wasn’t solely responsible for the banishment, although he whole-heartedly supported it. The true architect of Trump’s suspension was Vidaya Gadde, a PR executive at Twitter and, ironically, the daughter of ulra-conservative Indian immigrants, who moved to the U.S. in the late 1970s or early ’80s. She received an Ivy League education at Cornell and went to New York University Law School, before making a beeline to Silicon Valley. Says Dinesh D’Souza, Gadde was probably part of the great Indian diaspora of very conservative Indian families who came to America. “If you look at the way they behave, it’s to the right of Pat Robertson.”

So how did Gadde assume an ideology that was so alien to what her culture believes and thinks. D’Souza says the answer is simple. What happens to these Asian Americans who attend elite schools and plant themselves in progressive American cities, is that they assimilate to progressive culture. “In other words, they want to become American, and becoming American for them is assimilating to the culture of Yale, or the culture of Cornell or the culture of San Francisco.” He adds that part of this assimilation is coming up with made-up stories of gender discrimination or racism. A sad epithet, indeed.

Here’s more from D’Souza, including is own skit of what really happened in the Gadde family.

Progressives Will Surrender

As Blizzard has demonstrated, the progressives do not have the stomach to stand up to the white supremacists. Progressives will surrender to Nazis. More from Sargon of Akkad.

 

If Natives Were Progressives

Here’s a satirical look at what would happen if the European Colonists applied today’s progressive, liberal, cultural Marxist, “politically correct” terms to justify their conquest of the Americas. This video also explores if the native aboriginals would be found GUILTY or not, for their refusal to embrace “diversity and multiculturalism,” and simply accept the European “refugees.” More from the Truth Monger.

The Struggle For Stupidity

Bill Whittle recently stumbled upon a 100-year-old sixth grade textbook titled Literature Reader: Sixth Year, by Leroy E. Armstrong, a compilation of written tales and their analyses, basic literature and story structure. But amazingly, Whittle says, a passage from the California textbook would probably elude most college students today.

“That’s what sixth graders were reading 100 years ago in 1914, but if a college student graduated today with a full and complete grasp of that one single paragraph, they’d probably be better educated than they are today after a quarter-million dollars or so of student debt.” Whittle elaborates on what he calls the progressive struggle for stupidity in this edition of “Firewall” on Truth Revolt.
