The Contradiction of Leftist Opinion: Scott Walker, Tom Cotton, et al
The liberal media complex is usually singular in its vision--agitprop. Push the meme, secure the front against argument, then debilitate opposing viewpoints with ridicule. A very to the point mechanical process that has been honed through years of practice ...

The Post-Truth Perception of the Political Liberal
Sometimes you have to question contemporary knowledge about our history and past. When we get so wrapped around ideology and start to warp historical facts and truth in order to sustain our own context and perspective of our world, the truth becomes non-exi...

Italy is worried about ISIS invasion.

Anyone noticed that in the Left's mindset Governor Scott Walker is to stupid to do anything else besides be a governor and Senator Tom Cotton--Harvard Law educated--is to stupid to do anything? Spurious and contradictory observations by our Progressive comrades.
