DAVIDSON: Mobilization, Not Despondence, About Progressive Ideology Will Make A Difference

Despair about progressivism doesn’t change what is happening.

The expanding cultural rift between the Left and the Right, and the opposing views over issues that seemingly have no middle ground, are tearing apart our society. At least 75 million Americans (Trump voters in 2020) are deeply concerned about the fate of our country, perhaps even more so than at any time in our history, including WWII, the Cold War, and 9/11. In those three cases, some measure of unity existed in addressing our common foes.

Counterbalance the Grotesque and Violent

We are a nation infected with an entitlement and ‘social justice’ mentality from which many individuals will never retreat. The Democrat’s long-standing posture, as the party concerned with the common man and woman, has morphed into something grotesque and often violent. We are flooded with great numbers of low-information voters, most having been brainwashed by our educational system. Will the ‘woke’ hustlers and connivers win election after election for the duration of our nationhood?

This we know for sure: Despair about progressivism doesn’t change what is happening in the country or around the globe. All of the email chatter in the world, between ourselves, doesn’t lessen the pace of the destruction.

How can we make a vital difference in the health and vitality or of our nation? For one, support endeavors that counterbalance the effects of the mainstream media. The nation’s major newspapers, including The New York Times, Washington Post and Los Angeles Times, among throngs of others, maintain an unwritten cabal to support Joe Biden, irrespective of his illicit dealings with Ukraine and China, militarization of Washington D.C., deep state malfeasance, destruction of women’s sports, border policy lunacy, gross incompetence, dementia, and everything else.

Media giants as impactful as those cited above have been censoring and contorting the news for generations, while constantly claiming that any view from the Right is antiquated or misconceived. So, seek out other news sources such as Newsmax, OneAmericaNews, Townhall, Politicrossing, FlagAndCross, RedState, and WhatFingerNews.

Let’s Focus our Billions of Dollars

Rather than lament “progressivism,” we need a sustained effort to fund, support, and maintain print as well as television and internet media which truly counterbalance the effects of the mainstream media. We need major new entries into the media landscape.

For all the billions of dollars held by conservatives, instead of simply backing individual candidates and campaigns, let’s redirect public opinion at the “cellular” level. Rank and file liberals have little chance to achieve objectivity because each day they are thoroughly manipulated. Otherwise, many of them could at least become centrists. Note: In contrast, conservatives have no choice but to be exposed to the constant “progressive” beat of the media machine. Hence, we know all about Leftist spin.

It is time to launch a conservative version of National Public Radio, with the scope and backing that NPR enjoys. It is time to launch a second and even a third Fox-type network, or at least how Fox used to be.

The Columbia School of Journalism and other journalism schools will continue to pump out ready-made liberal journalists. We need counterbalancing institutions that will produce conservative journalists, or at least reasonably objective journalists.

Will a Pulitzer Prize be awarded to a conservative journalist? No. Will the Nobel Prize continue to go to the Barack Obamas of the world who did nothing to earn his, and after eight years in office did much to have it rescinded? Yes. Thus, we need to launch our own awards and our own institutions that sponsor them. https://townhall.com/columnists/jeffdavidson/2021/01/31/a-nobel-peace-prize-to-black-lives-matter-n2583972

Keeping the Lefties in Check

We can no longer allow institutions like the ACLU and BLM, and legions of other Open Society funded organizations, to go unchecked in their quest to bring down our nation. Sending more emails to each other, and writing more online comments, as the “progressives” work feverishly to make the U.S. into “just another country” on earth, won’t do much to stop them.

Virtually unchecked, progressives continue to spew their doctrine, which ultimately impoverishes everyone except for a handful of “elite” leaders (see Soviet Union, 1917 to 1989) who enjoy privileged status.

As a political body, a force for good, and a constituency for sanity, let us resolve to erect major institutions that exert influence on the populace with equal, if not greater impact than the liberal cabal. Let’s neutralize the mainstream media, the press rooms, the airwaves, and our universities. This is within our grasp and we have the will.

Texas Doctor Defies Abortion Ban, Setting Up New Legal Challenge to Enforcement

This is just a game of courts and time, and this doctor is betting that with enough of the latter, the former will swing to his favor.

Published

While the Supreme Court is often seen as a finish line for certain legal challenges here in the United States, in some cases, it is truly only the beginning of another, larger fight.

Such seems to be the case in Texas, where a new abortion ban has already been defied by one doctor.

A Texas doctor claimed Saturday that he has deliberately violated the state’s new abortion law in order to help test whether it’s legal.

Alan Braid, an obstetrician-gynecologist in San Antonio, explained his actions in an essay published in The Washington Post.

Braid writes that he understands “there could be legal consequences” because of his action.

It seems that “legal consequences” were the whole point.

“But I wanted to make sure that Texas didn’t get away with its bid to prevent this blatantly unconstitutional law from being tested.”

He added later: “I understand that by providing an abortion beyond the new legal limit, I am taking a personal risk, but it’s something I believe in strongly.”

The news comes just days after the Attorney General, Merrick Garland, stated his unequivocal opinion that the new Texas law was unconstitutional – something that very well may have factored into the decision by Braid.

Braid’s case, should Texas choose to enforce the law against him, certainly has the makings of a situation that could again reach the Supreme Court.  Should there be any changes to the makeup of that judicial body ahead of Braid’s case, there could be a reasonable chance that the Texas law gets overturned.

This is why the GOP is so concerned about the Biden administration’s willingness to consider the possibility of packing the court.

Despite Federal Freakout, ‘J6’ Rally Remains Peaceful

The federal response to the event has turned out to be a joke.

Published

on

All week, we heard nothing but abject terror from the mainstream media.  They were completely convinced that there was trouble coming down the pike on The Beltway, and they were frothing at the mouth in hoping to blame it on the MAGA Movement.

But, despite their desperate and derivative dialogue, the “Justice for J6” rally went off without a hitch, foiling their naysaying narrative.

Early reports and videos emerging from the pro-Capitol-rioter “Justice for J6” rally indicate that the event has drawn “a few dozen” attendees, and many times that number of press and police.

On Saturday afternoon, videos began trickling out on social media showing the early stages of the event, organized to show support for those imprisoned over the Jan. 6 invasion of the Capitol, showing very high turnout — by cops and the media.

This, after weeks of fear mongering and facetious insults from the mainstream media.

In fact, the overzealousness of law enforcement wound up being a bit of an embarrassment.

Despite the turnout, the event drew a large law enforcement and media presence. Capitol Police said Friday they were working with over 27 agencies from around the region to secure the event.

This appears to reiterate the idea that the mainstream media’s vilification of Trump supporters has been largely inappropriate, and just another attempt at manufacturing outrage to bolster their ratings.
