Democrats are still feeling the sting of defeat over the presidential election and many of them are hopeful for some form of victory in the 2018 midterms.

They’re going to face a tougher opponent than the Republicans however, and it’s coming from inside their own party.

The Progressive movement, which makes up a...

I don’t often read columns by Shaun King.

His column in The NY Daily News came highly recommended, however, by progressive writer Jeff Stein of Vox.com, with whom I first came into contact when he founded and ran The Ithaca Voice.

Stein tweeted that King’s column a “must read” on the need to...

While the media obsesses over the Trump White House day after day, they are largely neglecting to report that a battle is still raging for the soul of the Democratic Party.

Chelsea Clinton is gearing up for her turn at bat, but the progressive wing of the party isn’t interested.

The internal strife within the Democrat party is palpable.  The two warring sides are the moderate centrists who still believe in things like free speech, capitalism, and love for America and the radical progressive left who do not.

In perhaps the most bizarre interview Tucker’s conducted as yet on his new show,...

The people who claimed they were protesting the Dakota Pipeline to save the environment have a funny way of showing it. They left behind so much garbage that the site has become a potential environmental disaster.

The Washington Times reports:

Massive cleanup underway after Dakota Access protesters leave behind environmental mess

While I’m enjoying the progressive meltdown as much as the next person, it may be time to think about countering the “resistance.”  We would do well to think about the impact the pressure from the raging “resistance” is likely to have not on their own party but on Republicans in Congress...

Kimberley Strassel over at the Wall Street Journal has some good advice for the “progressive tea party” “resistance” “movement”:  don’t go down the path you’re on because it’s based on a fundamentally flawed understanding of the Tea Party.

How puerile can progressives be? Childish enough to taunt someone over his name, and even ascribe ideological views to a person based on his moniker. And here we thought liberals prided themselves on never judging people on their superficial characteristics.

Yesterday we pointed out the massive security being planned for Trump’s inauguration. There’s a very good reason for that. In addition to fears of terrorist actions, the radical left is planning a number of different actions for inauguration day.

This is a tough time to be a progressive.

There is a widespread mental breakdown in nests of radicalism, like Ithaca. I take no pleasure in that. Seriously. Come on you guys, seriously, no joy whatsoever.

Vanderbilt University has picked up the idea of preferred gender pronouns and run away with it. There are charts on campus to explain the proper usage of gender pronouns and name plates are providing individual pronoun preferences.
