The ever-widening 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.
Facing the Grotesque and Violent
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 a nation infected with an entitlement and ‘social justice’ mentality from which many individuals will never retreat. 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?
What 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.
To make a vital difference in the health and vitality of our nation requires mobilization. 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 WhatFingerNews, Newsmax, OneAmericaNews, Townhall, Politicrossing, FlagAndCross, and RedState.
Employing 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 Obama’s 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.
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.
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.

It is to our overwhelming advantage to ensure that only registered Republicans are able to participate
Let us resolve to keep our primary voting to those who are registered Republicans. One can make the argument that there are closet Republicans who, for fear of reprisal in the workplace, cannot join the Republican party but are, nevertheless, Republican in sentiment.
However, this is a small group. And, they are more than offset by hordes of Democrats who, if allowed into Republican primaries will do their dirty work as they have done throughout counties in North Carolina and throughout the nation.
Overall, it is to our overwhelming advantage to ensure that only registered Republicans are able to participate.
As a case in point, on the national level, the RINO Nikki Haley would be out of the race if not for Democrat voters stepping over the line in coordinated effort and voting in Republican primaries. Granted, she is backed by billionaire mega-donors who fear Donald Trump. If Democrats could not vote in the GOP primaries, however, the mega-donors dollars wouldn’t be worth much.
As a result of Haley staying in the race, Donald Trump has to spend a bit more than otherwise, and deflect some of his attention away from the Democrats, the swamp, and the Marxist’s plans to destroy our country.

The panoply of liberal and Leftist policies are harmful to society
Biden and company want to contort the right to vote, endlessly fund Ukraine, kowtow to Middle East terrorists, pack the Supreme Court, end the filibuster, disband the electoral college, treat January 6th protestors like insurrectionists, convict Trump on SOMETHING, appease China, and permanently make tens of millions of Americans totally dependent on government entitlements.
In recent years, the questionable lockdowns, restrictions, and mandates over COVID-19, and Democrats’ willingness to overlook street violence, enhances my view that the Left loves the idea of total authority and forevermore imposing its will on all of us.
Insanity Over the Top
The panoply of liberal or Leftist viewpoints, from no need for voter ID to restrictions on the 1st Amendment, to indoctrinating children is harmful to society.
Is it acceptable to teach children that there are more than 50 genders? Do you believe, as Leftists do that children may choose their gender? Do you think that cross-dressers ought to be reading to children at story hour? Should the sciences, mathematics, and other core academic disciplines be taught to accommodate ‘politically diverse’ points of view?
Are you okay with colleges holding separate graduation exercises and celebrations for different ethnic minorities? Martin Luther King, Jr, must be rolling over in his grave. Should entire college curricula be redesigned because most of the great works of literature throughout history have been written by white males?
Should student loans be exonerated? Should colleges establish safe spaces? Are you perturbed when conservative speakers are disrupted from speaking on campus, or are banned from campus? Curiously, can a university promise students an unbiased education when 97% of college professors’ political donations go to Democrats?
Open the Spigots!
Should Medicare be provided for all and, if so, how do you pay for it? Is late-trimester abortion acceptable? After a baby is born, is it the right of the mother and the doctor to choose whether or not that person will continue to live?
Should we have open borders, and let in anyone who wants to come here, now approaching 9 million since Biden was installed? Are illegal immigrants to be given free healthcare once they cross the border, as all Democrat presidential contenders stated on live TV in 2020? How do hordes arrive at the southern border, well-fed and hydrated, after trekking 100s or 1000s of miles, with sturdy walking shoes and cell phones? Should they be flown and bussed all over the U.S. courtesy of the Biden administration? Are sanctuary cities a good idea, and do they support the lives and aspirations of actual U.S. citizens?
When newspaper headlines scream about gun violence, is wringing your hands over the issue any solace for families in Chicago or Baltimore ghetto communities who experience gun violence on a daily basis? Do you care about the issue, or do you only get riled up when the mainstream media stokes your emotions by giving World War II coverage to carefully crafted, elevated cases?
Is calling others racist acceptable when, in your own heart, you know that you are biased at times against this group or that? Is virtue signaling an acceptable form of social participation, or should one actually take appropriate, non-violent action to address a perceived wrong? Is a comment from 30 or 40 years ago made by a celebrity — or a politician, for that matter — enough to cancel his or her career?
Goals and Tactics of Violent Groups
Are the goals and violent tactics of Antifa acceptable to you? If they’re proud of what they stand for and forthright in their actions, why do they wear ski masks? Appearing in selected cities in time to cause trouble, and leading the turmoil following the death of George Floyd, how many of them actually hold jobs?
In pursuit of protests, do any pay for their own transportation and housing costs? If they do not pay for themselves, who is paying? Most curiously, why do they often go after the most vulnerable people they can find in any gathering? Is it okay when law enforcement stands down in the face of violence committed by those on the left?
The Left embraces mass insanity and it’s getting more absurd all the time. Yet, it appears that Leftists do not understand the magnitude and ramifications of many of their political and social views. Their agenda, fully implemented, would destroy our civilization in less than a few years.
Ronald Reagan said, “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men [and women] were free.”
It would be nice to reach consensus, in some way, with those on the Left, however, my sensibilities cry out and say that would be cultural and national suicide.
