Pat Caddell – Pollster, Populist, and Patriot – Dies at 68

Veteran pollster Pat Caddell passed away Saturday at his home in Charleston, SC, at the age of 68. His willingness to challenge conventional political wisdom – combined with his decades of campaign experience – set him apart as a political strategist who got things right when so many others got them wrong. This was strikingly obvious in 2016, when Caddell was the sole pollster to understand Donald Trump’s voters and the New York builder’s path to victory.

Mansour: Manufacturing a Smear – How the Democrat-Media Complex Turned Brett Kavanaugh into a ‘Rapist’

So how did a man who is a proven ally of women, who is universally praised by female colleagues, and has never had any complaints lodged against him over his decades-long career come to be labeled a “rapist” and those who voted to confirm him to the Supreme Court as “rape enablers”? It took a mix of political activism, uncorroborated allegations, and left-wing hysteria – all woven seamlessly into a media narrative blasted 24/7 to drown out the truth and transform a good man into a monster.

WASHINGTON, DC - SEPTEMBER 06: Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles Grassley (R-IA) (L) talks with ranking member Sen.

Timeline: Democrats’ Changing Demands for Christine Blasey Ford’s Testimony

The timeline of events following Christine Blasey Ford’s decision to go public with her allegations against Judge Brett Kavanaugh can be characterized as a series of solicitous accommodations on the part of the Senate Judiciary Committee and its chairman, followed by shifting demands and stonewalling from Democrats and Ford’s lawyers.

Mansour: If You Think U.S. Intelligence Is Never Wrong, I Have Some Yellowcake for You

The remonstrations of history are rarely heeded in moments of mass hysteria. But before the new Cold Warriors and their neocon fellow travelers lead us into a crusade based on an FBI report about a computer server the bureau never got to inspect, perhaps we should consider the track record of U.S. intelligence in times of war.

Mansour: The Olympic Gold Medal for Sucking Up to a Murderous Totalitarian Regime Goes to…

There’s a new competitive sport at this year’s Winter Olympics in South Korea. Its participants are members of the establishment media. Their aim: to suck up to the despotic regime in North Korea. The gold medal goes to the most ingratiating and morally obtuse totalitarian ass-kisser. And though the games have just begun, I think I know who the winner is.

Mansour — The Premature ‘End of History’: the Fall of Soviet Union in 1991 and the Rise of China in 2017

When the Soviet Union collapsed on December 26, 1991, foreign policy pundits were eager to embrace Francis Fukuyama’s “End of History” argument that the world – now in tune with peaceful victorious American ideals – would be concerned henceforth with “economic calculation, the endless solving of technical problems, environmental concerns, and the satisfaction of sophisticated consumer demands.” But we know that not everyone around the world was, or is, eager to embrace Western liberal democracy. In fact, just about every other country has its own ideas as to how it should operate, and these ideas have little, if anything, to do with the theorizing of American savants. One such country is China.

Grassroots Group Urges Major Retailers to Say ‘Merry Christmas’ Again

President Donald Trump famously declared that “we’re saying ‘Merry Christmas’ again.” With Christmas less than two weeks away, however, numerous major retailers have decided to forgo saying “Merry Christmas” altogether or are sticking with the politically correct “Happy Holidays” greeting. But a nonprofit group dedicated to combatting political correctness and protecting religious freedoms is fighting back with a new initiative called Bring Back Christmas. Their goal: urge retailers to return Christmas to its rightful place in American culture.

Kurt Bardella to America: I’m a Democrat Now; America: Who the Hell Is Kurt Bardella?

In a USA Today op-ed, #NeverTrump Z-list celebrity and Beltway PR consultant Kurt Bardella (who, by the way, would like everyone in America to remember that he once worked for Breitbart News before flouncing off in a cynically self-serving pantomime of political courage during the 2016 election) has finally announced that he has become a Democrat.
