Donald Trump formally anointed himself the head of the Republican party at Sunday’s Conservative Political Action Conference.
The ‘Grand Old Party’, founded in 1854 in Ripon, Wisconsin, is now greater than it ever has been before. The dwindling number of elected officials who have betrayed our nation and rightfully elected President Trump are now being purged. Even Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell’s popularity has dropped 29 points among Kentucky Republicans since he broke with Trump.
In its place is the Trump party, A.K.A. the Patriot Party whose major goal is to advance the Conservative agenda and the truth that the 2020 election was stolen from him. It, the newly formed Patriot’s agenda is to exact vengeance on Republicans who betrayed their own constituents and caved to the fear; threats of the left-wing movement and keep our nation prosperous, yet productive, while retaining our traditional values, especially that oh so wonderful stack of papers called the Constitution.
As the Trump party takes over the GOP, anti-Trump Republicans are abandoning the party in droves – thereby weakening RINO candidates in general elections while simultaneously strengthening Trump’s hand inside it.
It is bad news for Democrats and Joe Biden.
Democrats are eating themselves alive and Conservatives or Republicans haven’t even had to lift a finger. It is only a matter of time before the overly sensitive and cancel-culture driven society the Democrats have promoted comes crashing down in their own faces, allowing the right side of things to seize control once again. States like Georgia, Florida, Arizona, and Texas are already tightening their grip on election laws, in particular mail-in voting.
The gift will keep giving. Despite the corruption of our compromised supreme court, Trump’s tax returns will show he has always been a legitimate businessman and may even show the sacrifices he paid financially after signing up to become a living meat shield whose sole purpose seemed to be deflecting the Democratic party’s continuous attacks against the American people’s freedoms, lives, and wallets.
The Trump party isn’t interested in appealing to the elites in Washington.
Former President Donald Trump’s appearance at last weekend’s Conservative Political Action Conference showed that “this is still Trump’s party,” notes The Federalist’s David Marcus. While he may not have been “the only star,” the conference’s themes, such as the dangers of China and Big Tech, “reflected Trump’s political philosophy.” In his own speech, Trump “reminded us all that the GOP has changed, and it’s glorious.” In the past four years, everyone wondered why some “Republican electeds” are “so scared of Trump and his tweets,” but actually, “what those officials feared and still do is Trump’s voters” and their populist and conservative-nationalist instincts. “For now, that populism is here to stay.”
Education beat: Charters Are ‘Equity’ Machines
“President Joe Biden’s vision of renewed unity among America’s diverse population can never be achieved without education equity for students of color,” argues Lenny McAllister at USA Today. And this means proving that the administration “understands, values and supports” parents who enroll their children in the 7,500 public charter schools across the United States. After all, “in areas where schools are chronically underperforming, and families have little education choice, there are also fewer living-wage jobs and the school-to-prison pipeline flows all too freely.” Charters offer 3.3 million “mostly black and brown” kids nationwide “teachers who look more like them and curriculum that is malleable to fit diverse backgrounds and learning preferences.” Closing the achievement gap remains “the civil-rights issue of our time,” and charters are indispensable.
Cuomo watch: Gov Can’t Use Old Excuses
When former aide Charlotte Bennett accused Gov. Cuomo of sexual harassment three days after ex-staffer Lindsey Boylan detailed similar allegations, the governor seemed to think he could “calibrate” his way through the trouble as usual, surmises Vanity Fair’s Chris Smith. But his “circumstances this time were very different” than during previous political battles, including over his nursing-home scandal. For starters, his conduct included asking “creepy questions about the sex life” of a 25-year-old sex-assault survivor (Bennett), and he doesn’t deny making the comments. Then, too, he can’t blame political enemies for this one. He really is in deep trouble.
Leftist: The Bogus ‘Perils’ of Independent News
At his TK News blog on Substack, Matt Taibbi rises in defense of . . . Substack. Recently, Sarah Roberts, co-leader of the UCLA Center for Critical Internet Inquiry, argued that sites hosting independent journalists are a “threat to journalism,” because such writers aren’t under the “strict editorial and journalistic principles” of a traditional newsroom. Taibbi observes that she clearly means people like him and Glenn Greenwald, “arguing that we made our names as reporters in the structure of traditional newsrooms, taking advantage of ‘norms and practices’ like fact-checking and editing.” Yet she “has things backward. Greenwald and I . . . got our start as independents. . . . We both built substantial readerships on our own before being scooped up by ‘traditional’ news organizations.” She also ignores the growing “perception that traditional news outlets have become tools of the very corporate and political interests they’re supposed to be overseeing.” Indeed, traditional outlets are now consumed by concerns that “audiences make the ‘correct’ political decision with the news they’re given,” which winds up leading them to embrace outright falsehoods such as the claim that The Post’s Hunter Biden scoops were just “Russian disinformation.”
Iconoclast: The Racism of ‘Anti-Racist’ Math
At his Substack, It Bears Mentioning, John McWhorter slams the educators’ guide “Dismantling Racism in Mathematics Instruction” as itself racist. Centrally, the guide argues “that making black kids be precise is immoral.” And it advances lunatic claims such as “a focus on getting the ‘right’ answer is ‘perfectionism’ or ‘either/or thinking’ ”; “to teach math in a linear fashion, with skills taught in sequence, is racist”; and “to require students to ‘show their work’ is racist.” The idea that “black kids shouldn’t be expected to master the precision of math is bigotry right out” of the 19th century.
