It’s Time the RIGHT Got Its Act Together

If you watch TV news – and you really shouldn’t waste your time watching the media puppets as they cover mostly negative and depressing events – if it’s about politics and opinions from the left, it’s the same on every channel and from every political spokesperson. Clearly, they are all working from talking points distributed by the Democratic Party and its hundreds of left-wing groups including the media, of course.
Sad to say it, but they really have their act together in their efforts to influence the public to their way of thinking. For example, for three long years all the rage has been Trump’s actions supposedly unbecoming to a President, his disreputable friends, his firings, the Russian stuff and of course the impeachment. You know all this.
While there are more than one hundred national conservative groups lining up behind the leaders such as Heritage, Cato, Heartland and The American Enterprise Institute, there are even more State or local conservative groups. Problem is, they virtually never get together to discuss a joint strategy to defeat the anti-capitalist/socialist views put forth daily by the left.
There is a reason for this. In the case of the left they are pursuing what amounts to a cult religion. Their cause is more important than their individual self-promotion. And, of course, they have billions of dollars at their disposal from left-wing foundations and governments across the world. By contrast, those on the right of the political spectrum are generally independent-thinking individualists reluctant to give up their own viewpoints by compromising on some middle ground. The fact that they lack access to the huge funding sources supporting the left means conservative groups are often in competition with each other for the limited funding available and so are usually reluctant to cooperate for that reason as well. Therefore, conservative voices spread thinly across society while the left pounds the same nail home every day, year in year out, until the public repeats it like an old song in their heads.
Nikita Khrushchev, former Premier of the old Soviet Union, said in 1959 about the United States:
“Your children’s children will live under communism. You American’s are so gullible. No, you won’t accept Communism outright, but we’ll keep feeding you small doses of Socialism until you will finally wake up and find that you already have Communism. We won’t have to fight you; We’ll so weaken your economy, until you fall like overripe fruit into our hands.
Our friend John Droz, a retired physicist, leads the battle against socialism in New York State, and their desire to power the world with wind and solar energy. He believes that conservatives cannot gain victory with the public unless and until they begin to recognize what approaches must be taken in unison to begin turning the tide of the political juggernaut that has been launched against the American public. The climate change fiasco, now mentioned in nearly every newspaper story no matter the topic, is perhaps the best case in point. Mankind has no impact on the Earth’s thermostat⏤yet the left has convinced most of the public otherwise. 
Droz suggests holding discussions between conservative groups on a variety of topics to determine an effective and cooperative path to reveal the lies we hear daily in the media. Some of his topical ideas include:

  • learning to tell stories better when we communicate;
  • changing minds by changing perspective;
  • how to get the media to make our case;
  • and perhaps the most important is the well-worn statement that united we stand, divided we fall. Conservatives must start to work far more cooperatively if we are to have a chance to defeat the powerful forces that oppose us at every turn.

All of which makes the point that currently we lack a coherent overall strategy to achieve success. Otherwise, every candidate for the Democratic Presidential nomination would not be so bold as to support a socialist mandate even though it makes no sense whatsoever. 

How can they seriously believe they can sell a Green New Deal that will send us back to life in the 19th century when virtually all fossil fuels remained in the ground? How can they seriously believe that they can give all health care and education away for free by only taxing the rich?

They can do it because a lost generation of young people educated in government schools never heard what socialism did to Russia, Cuba and Venezuela.
Somehow, some way the right must get their act together.

Dr. Jay Lehr and Mr. Tom Harris are suppose to be members of “a non-partisan group of independent scientists, economists and energy and policy experts who are working to promote better understanding of climate science and policy worldwide.” (Source International Climate Science Coalition (ICSC) website) However, opinion pieces like this one show Mr. Harris and Dr. Lehr are far more interested in promoting their political agenda that understanding climate science.
Dr. Lehr and Mr. Harris assert, “Mankind has no impact on the Earth’s thermostat…” Their assertion is not supported by the evidence. The scientific evidence of human-caused climate change is both clear and convincing. (Source Chapter 2: Physical Drivers of Climate Change, Volume I, 4th National Climate Assessment)
Dr. Lehr and Mr. Harris assert TV news is a plot by the Democrats and left-wing groups. “Clearly, they are all working from talking points distributed by the Democratic Party and its hundreds of left-wing groups including the media, of course.” They assert those who do not share their political beliefs are “anti-capitalist/socialist(s)” and “a cult religion.” Mr. Harris and Dr. Lehr offer no evidence to support their political and religious conspiracy theories. They claim that addressing human-caused climate change is socialism and communism even though many moderates, conservatives and capitalists accept the evidence.
This opinion piece shows that Mr. Harris and Dr. Lehr are partisan activists with little to no interest in climate science.

This Disqus profile – https://disqus.com/by/disqus_JzQ88MTX2I/following/ – shows that since March 31, 2016, Mr. James has made 4485 comments. Here is a sample of some of his many, many posts apparently trying to discredit my writings in online article comment sections: https://www.google.ca/search?site=&source=hp&q=%22Tom+Harris%22+%22Dave+James%22&gws_rd=cr&ei=nyGDWefuDavcjwSb-oK4DA . I already explained to Mr. James that many of his points are either wrong or misleading but he seems to just go to other Web sites and make the same assertions again. I will not waste any more time explaining this to him, unless other people bring up the same or similar questions.

Tom Harris is mistaken. It is not my words that impact his credibility but his. Mr. Harris refuses to discuss his opinion piece because he knows open and honest discussion will only hurt his agenda.

Take a Look at the Positive Side of Anarchy

Take a Look at the Positive Side of Anarchy

The only way to achieve liberty and peace is to restore law and order. And the only way to restore law and order is to literally crush the forces of evil. When that begins to happen, we do actually see the positive side of tyranny and anarchy. Conflict is a bedfellow of oppression. Therefore we must end the conflict and, in doing so, end the tyranny. Here’s the positive side of this war…

It’s a LONG-HAUL with COVID-19

The context is that about 50% of those hospitalized with COVID-19 develop post-COVID symptoms. Severe outpatients also are affected. Characteristic symptoms include headache, hearing loss, tinnitus, loss of olfactory function, sleep disturbance, muscle aches, weakness, fatigue, and chest or abdominal pain…

Be the One.

Be the One.

Be the one — no longer willing to huddle together in the helpless band — the one who dares to join the fight. Another will follow you and then another, and in a flash of time, that bleeding hulk of our nation — once the great light of liberty to the world, now barely flickering — will rise again to throw off the wolves like it has done before, sending them scurrying for safety…

Major Medical Mystery: Why Some People Despite Exposure Don’t Get COVID

A small fraction of Americans have escaped COVID infection. CDC uses a figure of 60% for those infected, while the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation at the University of Washington says that 76% have been infected. The remainder may have escaped exposure or been exposed but escaped infection. The latter people are the subject of the medical mystery…

Correcting America’s Course Back to the Constitutional Rule of Law

The US Constitution must scrupulously be followed, especially by the judiciary. It is not for judges to make laws; it is for them to observe and rule on the constitutionality of issues before them. Their oaths, taken upon their confirmations, should include the understanding that their failures to follow judicial protocols would end in their termination…

Does Joe Biden Aspire to be America’s Last President?

Does Joe Biden Aspire to be America’s Last President?

Most ominously, no American administration has ever seemed so entirely unconcerned about hemorrhaging political capital. And that lack of concern about voters’ approval can only mean that this administration no longer believes it relies on political capital (the consent of the governed) for power. We can only assume that this Marxist-aligned administration intends to authorize itself with whatever power it requires to achieve its ends…

Criminal Intimidation Led By Schumer and Pelosi are America’s Domestic Terrorists

The SCOTUS leak was explicitly designed to tip the balance back to Progressivisms demands and rally the Democrat base to intimidate conservatives, political and business leaders by threats of violence because the country is in a Biden mess, one he created in January 2021 to reflect his party’s image as one that clings to the failed philosophy of Marx and Engles…

Pennsylvania Races Plunge to Swampy Politics 

Pennsylvania Races Plunge to Swampy Politics 

The establishment has money and counts itself as power brokers. They love the status quo, the “don’t rock the boat” mentality. They pronounce, “This is our guy!” and expect the masses to get in line. However, many are standing up and deciding to vote conscience over party or affiliation – regardless. But aren’t those the same “stand up” attitude and actions that formed this great nation?
