Only a Tiny 24% of Americans Now Identify as a Liberal

A new Gallup poll finds that only 24 percent of Americans identify as liberals and America remains a center-right nation ideologically.

Published

A new Gallup poll finds that only 24 percent of Americans identify as liberals and that America remains a center-right nation ideologically.

This finding is telling since 47 percent of the voting public identify as Democrats. In other words, many millions of Democrats still lean toward the center and the party’s drive to the extreme left threatens its standing.

The survey was released by Gallup this week and was a result of a poll of 29,000 adults.

Both Ideology and party identification play a role in elections, Gallup noted. Gallup insists that a lack of ideology would see Democrat dominance, but a lack of partisanship would result in Republican dominance.

According to the survey, 37% of Americans identified as conservative, 35% as moderate and 24% as liberal.

Other results are as follows:

-Republicans identifying as conservative registered as 73% of self-identified members of the GOP, about the same that Gallup measured in 2018 and 2012.

-Democrats who said they were liberal measured at 49%, down from 51% last year.

-45% of independents identified as moderates, 30% called themselves conservative, and 21% liberal.

In other words, liberals are a political minority.

It is a fact that conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh says that he wished more people would recognize.

On his show on Thursday, Limbaugh said, “in the Gallup poll, 24% of this country identifies itself as liberal — and the Gallup headline itself says it. According to the latest Gallup poll, even as America has become more liberal, it has remained a center-right nation — and I have been trying to pound this point home on issue after issue. We have never been even 50-50 on abortion. This country has always been center right, even on abortion.”

Rush went on to slam those moderate Republicans who constantly crumple in the face of political liberals.

Actual liberals do not deserve the power the media and the political establishment afford them. The American people just don’t support them. It is long past time to ignore the left.

260 Million Christians Face ‘High Levels Of Persecution’

“It is worth noting that in eight of the top ten countries where Christian persecution is highest, Islamist ideology is the prime driver of the hostility.”

Published

on

260 million Christians face ‘extreme’, ‘very high’, or ‘high’ levels of persecution.

Growing pressure on Christians in China, Algeria, Burkina Faso, according to the 2020 Open Doors World Watch List. Christians face severe persecution in 73 countries.

“The church is alive. The church is active. The church is growing. And that’s why the church is persecuted,” says Open Doors in its 2020 report. “The persecution of Christians is getting more severe than ever, affecting increasing numbers of believers around the world.”

Each year, Open Doors releases the World Watch List, an annual look at the 50 places where following Jesus costs the most. This year, join David Curry as he takes into the story behind some of the numbers, and looks at how pressure changes the Church.

Breitbart:

Christian persecution around the globe reached an unprecedented level at the end of 2019, with over 260 million Christians facing “high levels of persecution,” Open Doors revealed Wednesday.

In its World Watch List 2020, Open Doors notes that one in 8 believers around the world suffers serious levels of persecution, while providing an in-depth look at the 50 countries where it is most dangerous to be a Christian.

In a nutshell, the new report reveals, every day, eight Christians are killed because of their faith and 23 Christians are raped or sexually harassed; every week, 182 Christian churches or buildings are attacked and 102 Christian homes, shops or businesses are attacked, burned, or destroyed; every month, 309 Christians are imprisoned unjustly.

The most acute persecution of Christians occurs in North Korea, the report found, but Afghanistan is close behind in the number two slot.

In the case of North Korea, persecution is driven by a virulent atheistic Communist ideology which views the estimated 200,000 to 400,000 Christians as traitors of the state because their allegiance is to God, not supreme leader Kim Jong Un. Moreover, they also form part of the lowest “hostile class” in the country’s social stratification system called Songbun. More

Rather than helping peaceful Christians that are persecuted around the world, western governments insist on helping Muslims! Print off the report from Open Doors and provide it to your Pastor and church leadership. If this is not being discussed from the pulpit, ask your church leadership why it is not.

Iran Openly Recruiting Suicide Bombers to Attack U.S.A.

Iran is now openly advertising for suicide bombers to volunteer to attack American forces, even inside the U.S. itself.

Published

Iran is now openly advertising for suicide bombers to volunteer to attack American forces, even inside the U.S. itself.

Students at Iran’s Islamic Azad University are finding flyers urging them to end their lives for the Mullahs, according to the New York Post.

“Registration for volunteers to commit a suicide attack against the United States and Israel,” the flier says. “Hard revenge is underway for those criminals who killed Qassem Soleimani.”

The flyer also claims to quote Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and urges students to “kill all infidels.”

The flyer includes a section for hopeful suicide bombers to fill in their names and personal information. They are also asked to “tell us about your talents.”

The existence of the flyer was first reported by the Iranian media.

As the Post reported:

A translation of the call to action from Farsi was provided to The Post by escaped Iranian dissident Amir-Abbas Fakhravar. Fakhravar is a longtime pro-Democracy activist currently serving as a chairman of the National Iranian Congress, a quasi-government in exile currently operated out of Washington D.C. He is also an adjunct professor in the Texas state university system.

Sources in Iran say that the flyers were handed out by student cells of Basij, the militia arm of the Iranian revolutionary guard.

“This office is kind of like the gestapo for the regime. They are not fully on the payroll of the regime, but the regime pays them for their projects. When there is a protest somewhere, they are going to crack down on the people and then they get money,” Fakhravar told The Post.

“When I was in medical school in Iran, I had a huge fight with the Basij office. I was ultimately charged with insulting the Supreme Leader,” Fakhravarsaid. “For decades they have been recruiting for terrorist attacks for this type of things.

The chief of the Basij, Brigadier General Gholamreza Soleimani (no relation to Qassem), was appointed directly by Ayatollah Khamenei.

REVEALED: Teen Climate Fraud Greta Thunberg Does Not Write Her Own Social Media Posts

Well, it looks like teenaged climate scold Greta Thunberg is an even bigger fraud than we thought.

Published

on

Well, it looks like teenaged climate scold Greta Thunberg is an even bigger fraud than we thought after a Facebook glitch revealed that she doesn’t even write any of the social media posts that she claims to write.

The Facebook glitch accidentally revealed that at least two other people write the social media posts that appear under Greta’s name.

The little fraud doesn’t even write her own social media posts!

Unbelievable.

The Facebook glitch accidentally allowed people to see who had permissions to post to Greta’s Facebook page, and it turned out most of the posts on the page were made by some dude in India named Adarsh Prathap, and Greta’s dad, Svantes.

“We quickly fixed an issue where someone could see who edited or published a post on behalf of a Page when looking at its edit history,” Facebook said in a statement. “We are grateful to the security researcher who alerted us to this issue.”

But Wired magazine added, “Still, despite the Friday morning fix, screenshots circulated on 4chan, Imgur, and social media appearing to show the accounts behind the official Facebook Pages of the pseudonymous artist Banksy, Russian president Vladimir Putin, former US secretary of state Hillary Clinton, Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau, the hacking collective Anonymous, climate activist Greta Thunberg, and rapper Snoop Dogg, among others.”

The teen climate scold finally made a statement on her fraud saying that she decided that Facebook wasn’t for her.

“Some people have been asking who manages this page. First of all, since last spring I only use Facebook to repost what I write on my Twitter and Instagram accounts,” she wrote.

“Since I have chosen not to be on Facebook personally ( I tried early on but decided it wasn’t for me) I use my father Svantes account to repost content, because you need an account to moderate a Facebook page,” she explained.

She added that Prathap created the page without her knowledge ahead of time, but she just decided to let the fraud go on as if it was her page.

So, she KNEW that it was a fraud, but let it go on with her full knowledge.

The teen then insisted that she is the author of all her tweets.

Sure she is. Suuure she is.

The Funniest Obituary You’ll Read This Month

It took death to bring out the fun from former ‘Des Moines Register’ reporter Ken Fuson wrote his own obituary, and to hilarious effect.

Published

on

We conservatives often laugh at journalists, but usually because they are arrogant, lying, piss-ants, not because they are fun. But it took death to bring out the fun from former Des Moines Register reporter Ken Fuson who wrote his own obituary, and to hilarious effect.

Fuson decided he wanted to have the final word on his life’s work, and his final words were a doosie, for sure.

The 63-year-old journalist passed away this month after a battle with liver disease, but the end didn’t come too fast to prevent him from putting together a very amusing obit that is a must read — yes, even if you never heard of the man.

Without further ado, here is the final column from Ken Fuson:

Ken Fuson, born June 23, 1956, died Jan. 3, 2020 in at Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha, of liver cirrhosis, and is stunned to learn that the world is somehow able to go on without him.

Ken grew up in Granger, and decided when he was a sophomore at Woodward-Granger High School that he wanted to be a newspaper reporter. He covered sports for the Woodward Enterprise before leaving for the University of Missouri-Columbia. He attended the university’s famous School of Journalism, which is a clever way of saying, “almost graduated but didn’t.” Facing a choice between covering a story for the Columbia Daily Tribune or taking his final exams, Ken went for the story. He never claimed to be smart, just committed.

In 1981, Ken landed his dream job, working as a reporter for The Des Moines Register, where he was probably best known for writing a one-paragraph, one-sentence weather story that has been reprinted in four books.

In 1996, Ken took the principled stand of leaving the Register because The Sun in Baltimore offered him more money. Three years later, having blown most of that money at Pimlico Race Track, he returned to the Register, where he remained until 2008.

In his newspaper work, Ken won several national feature-writing awards, including the Ernie Pyle Award, ASNE Distinguished Writing Award, National Headliner Award, Missouri Award (twice) and Distinguished Writing Award in the Best of Gannett contest (five times, but who’s counting?). No, he didn’t win a Pulitzer Prize, but he’s dead now, so get off his back.

There are those who would suggest that becoming a free-lance writer in the midst of the worst recession since the Great Depression was not a wise choice, but Ken was never one to be guided by wisdom.

He wrote the book, “Heading for Home” with Kent Stock, about the 1991 Norway baseball team that won the state championship in its final season. Good copies still available.

In 2011, Ken accepted a job in the marketing department at Simpson College, where he remained until 2018. He enjoyed it very much, but once again forgot an important lesson: Always have a Plan B.

He was diagnosed with liver disease at the beginning of 2019, which is pretty ironic given how little he drank. Eat your fruits and vegetables, kids.

He is survived by his sons, Jesse and Max, and his stepson, Jared Reese, who all brought Ken unsurpassed joy. He hopes they will forgive him for not making the point more often. He loved his boys and was (and is) extraordinarily proud to be their father.

For most of his life, Ken suffered from a compulsive gambling addiction that nearly destroyed him. But his church friends, and the loving people at Gamblers Anonymous, never gave up on him.

Ken last placed a bet on Sept. 5, 2009. He died clean. He hopes that anyone who needs help will seek it, which is hard, and accept it, which is even harder.

Miracles abound. Ken’s pastor says God can work miracles for you and through you. Skepticism may be cool, and for too many years Ken embraced it, but it was faith in Jesus Christ that transformed his life. That was the one thing he never regretted. It changed everything.

For many years Ken was a member of the First United Methodist Church in Indianola and sang in the choir, which was a neat trick considering he couldn’t read a note of music. The choir members will never know how much they helped him. He then joined Lutheran Church of Hope.

If you want to know what God’s love feels like, just walk in those doors. Seriously, right now. We’ll wait. Ken’s not going anywhere.

Ken had many character flaws — if he still owes you money, he’s sorry, sincerely — but he liked to think that he had a good sense of humor and a deep compassion for others. He prided himself on letting other drivers cut in line. He would give you the shirt off his back, even with the ever-present food stain. Thank goodness nobody asked. It wouldn’t have been pretty. He also was a master Jumbles solver.

Other survivors: his father, Don Fuson. Brother: Joe. A niece and two nephews. In lieu of flowers, Ken asked that everyone wear black armbands and wail in public during a one-year grieving period. If that doesn’t work, how about donating a book to the public libraries in Granger or Indianola?

Yes, this obituary is probably too long. Ken always wrote too long.

God is good. Embrace every moment, even the bad ones. See you in heaven. Ken promises to let you cut in line.

Thanks, Ken. Have a wonderful time in the hereafter, brother. You deserve it.

Toronto Police Threaten Journalist For Calling Soleimani A Terrorist

This is disgusting!

Published

on

Toronto police threaten Rebel journalist David Menzies for calling Qasem Soleimani a “terrorist.”

“I can’t call a terrorist, a ‘terrorist?’” Menzies asked. “Not in this sort of environment — no, you can’t, the officer replied. That’s going to incite a breach of the peace and that is Canadian law. Am I clear? It’s a breach of the peace. You will be placed under arrest. You’re not to use that word again, in here, in this environment. Do you understand me?”

Red State:

Toronto Iran supporters held a candlelight vigil for Qasem Soleimani this week and Rebel Media’s David Menzies was there to report on it.

As Menzies worked through the crowd of about 200 protesters, he began asking pointed questions about the general, Iran’s sponsorship of terrorism and sharia law. His questions were obviously designed to provoke and provoke they did.

Early in his video, Menzies begins asking crowd members why they were mourning Soleimani and if they thought he was a terrorist. Most of the responses were typical pro-Iranian fare – the U.S. is the real terrorist, Trump is a murderer, etc. etc. Surprisingly a few people indicated they saw Soleimani as a defender against terrorism in the middle east and ISIS and that the narrative of the slain general was merely propaganda.

In one hilariously “woke” moment a young woman boldly confronted Menzies to tell him her views on Trump as a terrorist. When an older white gentleman interrupted to shoo her away and tell her not to speak to the film crew, Menzies asked why he didn’t want to allow a woman to speak. The man instantly clammed up,

But it didn’t stay funny for long. Six minutes (6:20) into the video, the Toronto police can be seen asking Menzies to stop using the word “terrorism” while filming. The Rebel Media reporter protested that he has free speech rights under the Canadian constitution. Police responded that such words would be considered “incitement” in the context of the protest and demanded he leave the public square. More

Any freedoms Canadians used to have under their Charter of Rights and Freedoms have been decimated under the last four years of the Liberal government and they will continue to be attacked for the next four years! Canada used to be a great country but its “diversity-seeking” leader has all but destroyed their country!

USA Today Op-Ed: It Is ‘Terrifying’ Other Parishioners Were Armed During Church Shooting In Texas

All churches need to be armed.

Published

on

USA Today op-ed gets roasted for the argument it is ‘terrifying’ that parishioners were armed in Texas church shooting.

These parishioners were long-standing members of this church. The fact they carried concealed was also known. This church had made the decision to be protected against the growing anti-Christian values that are spreading in this country.

Townhall:

An op-ed penned by Elvia Díaz for the Arizona Republic and USA Today said it is “terrifying” there were other people who were armed at the West Freeway Church of Christ when it was attacked by a gunman on Sunday.

Jack Wilson was the heroic volunteer security guard who took down the shooter within six seconds of the attack. Two of the church’s parishioners were killed when Wilson used one round from his SIG P229 to kill the gunman.

“Jack Wilson is a hero alright. It took him only six seconds to kill a gunman at a Texas church, saving countless lives. Unfortunately, that kind of split-second heroism has been turned into a PR tool by gun advocates,” Díaz lamented. “The church’s volunteer security team member is a firearms instructor, gun range owner and former reserve deputy with a local sheriff’s department…” More

All churches need to be armed. The shooter was also known as a person that had shown hostility toward the church, they should have reported him to authorities were his criminal background would have been known. He had no legal right to a gun. Laws don’t prevent criminals from getting guns.

CBS News Highlights Major Trump Accomplishment As Most Underreported Story

Do they know they aired something positive about President Trump?

Published

on

CBS News Host Major Garrett said during the most recent broadcast of  “Face The Nation” that President Trump’s efforts, and subsequent successes, to improve the lives of minority communities in the United States was the most underreported news story of 2020.

“That is a legacy on the agenda side, that almost any president after three years would want to claim, particularly President Obama,” Garrett said. “Many of those things were sought. But you know what? Republicans would not go for it. Quietly, persistently, President Trump has pushed Republicans in this direction. And I think that’s an under-covered story and part of something that neither he nor Republicans really talk about it, but it doesn’t make it any less real.”

TDW:

Chief Washington Correspondent CBS News Host Major Garrett said during the most recent broadcast of CBS News’ “Face The Nation” that President Donald Trump’s efforts, and subsequent successes, to improve the lives of minority communities in the United States was the most underreported news story of 2020.

Garrett’s remarks came during a segment where host Margaret Brennan told the panel she wanted to hear their most “undercovered story and your beat and story you wish you could have covered.”

“So sometimes undercovered stories are complicated,” Garrett began, noting that Trump’s rhetoric sometimes does not match his actions. “And this one, I think, falls resolutely in that category.”

“And yet it can be fairly said that this administration, because of President Trump’s quiet prodding, has done quite a bit for funding of historically black colleges and universities,” Garrett said. “The First Step Act, which was a massive first step toward criminal justice reform. Just a couple of weeks ago, in this newly signed defense bill, there is a law that says if you are seeking work for the federal government or any contractor, you don’t have to be asked and you cannot be asked about your criminal history until right toward the end. That’s a significant change long sought by criminal justice advocates, plus opportunity zones in the tax bill directed at communities of color.”  More

This CBS reporter acts like the Republicans are ashamed of what great changes have been put in place for minorities. Hello, it has been said over and over and none of you Lefties MSM hear it until you can word it to have the most negative connotation possible!

Absolutely, President Trump has done more in 3-years than most in 8-years. The MSM hates him and refuses to acknowledge anything he has done. Everyone is better off now than they were 3-years ago… Thank you, President Trump, for all you have done!
