They have called for his opposition, his impeachment, his imprisonment, and his death and the death of other Republicans, both implicitly and at times explicitly. The anti-Trump movement on the left has a particularly vicious streak. So called "comedian" Kathy Griffin recently released a photo of her holding up a bloody, fake severed head of the President.
Democratizing Catholicism? I think not.
How does one democratize a religion? Would the members get to vote on Church doctrine? Cardinals get to vote for the Pope, should they act like delegates as if the conclave of cardinals were some sort of political convention? Here my message for Podesta and friends: Catholic doctrine was created by Christ. It was codified a long time ago by Emperor Constantine I in the fourth century. That is the basis of the Catholic Church, now and forever, unless the Big Man Upstairs orders a change.
The Politics of Division
The politics of division is the main weapon in the Democratic arsenal. Their strategy is simple: divide and conquer. They pick a voting bloc, along any lines it doesn’t matter, give them victim status then assign a villain. Then come the promises… Give the ‘victim’ a largess, and/or take punitive action against the alleged bad guy. The oppressor is always the larger party, usually they call them ‘big’ as in ‘big oil’, or ‘big pharma’, just so you know who to blame. As an aside, you’ll never hear reference to ‘big academia’ or ‘big government’ from the left as those are clients and are thus exempt.

Hillary Clinton now seems to be interested in giving unemployed former coal miners green jobs. Of course the only reason they are out of work and thus "victims" in the first place is because of the oppressive regulations that are destroying the coal industry.
Liberty Relearned, Year One
Some people are blessed with skills of oratory, some are natural leaders, and some others have charisma. I was blessed with a certain skill in writing and design. There was really one avenue that I felt offered me my best chance to communicate my love of things like capitalism, Americanism, and personal freedom—a year ago this week I started this blog.
Socialism in America: Just a President Away
We consider ourselves to be free citizens of a capitalist country operating in a free-market economy. How close we are to not being that much longer, to the extent we even still are, is enough to give one pause. Most of the components of a socialist America are already in place.
Antonin Scalia, the Constitution, and the Coming Storm
President Obama will likely nominate a candidate with a history of judicial activism. When the Senate initially rejects this nominee, he will call them obstructionist. He and much of the media will claim that they are attempting to deny him his Constitutional rights. Of course, this will be after he has exercised precisely that, his right to nominate a replacement for Justice Scalia.
Should we not turn from the course we’re on…
We can see in real time, the very identity of countries being altered under the crush of multiculturism. Migrants who assimilate into their adopted country’s culture make that country stronger. When this not the case, that country as it has existed, maybe for centuries, gets swallowed up by the alien one.
The Left’s Recent Foolish Ideas for Combating Gun Violence.
Apparently, after another tragic shooting that could not have been prevented by the “common sense gun laws” being proposed by the Progressive left, they have begun to sense this line by itself is not being bought by most of America. Now with terrorism back on the front pages, the left has sized upon a new … Continue reading The Left’s Recent Foolish Ideas for Combating Gun Violence.
Jack O’ Lanterns Scare Climate Change Liberals
Mere casual observation over time shows that any tradition, holiday, or custom overtly identifiable as Christian or American in this country eventually finds itself in the crosshairs of the Secular Progressive crowd.
