"There is no horizontal stratification of society in this country like the rocks in the earth, that hold one class down below forevermore, and let another come to the surface to stay there forever. Our stratification is like the ocean, where every individual drop is free to move, and where from the sternest depths of the mighty deep any drop may come up to glitter on the highest wave that rolls.”

James A. Garfield

 

Congratulations
America! 

What the alternative media forecasted, came to be.  A Trump victory that washed the nation red and revealed the heart of America. Wisconsin did our part with the historic win for Trump and Senator Johnson!

Trump-Pence, Senator Johnson, and all our elected Republicans need your ongoing support as they try to "drain the swamp" and make America great again. Continue to welcome fellow conservatives to our social and educational events so we can help grow "the movement".  We must begin to educate others on the failure of socialism and the need to secure local political positions with citizens faithful to the constitution. Stay tuned!

    ‘Dumb News’ Shows Why The Culture Wars Aren’t A Giant Waste Of Time

    If you fear losing a job for crossing whatever the bleeding edge of political correctness is at any given moment, these stories are not dumb.

    By Warren Henry, Dec. 6, 2016 The Federalist
    Following the extended media coverage of a rude crowd booing and otherwise demonstrating against incoming Vice President Mike Pence during a performance of the Broadway musical “Hamilton,” Commentary’s Noah C. Rothman was among those opining that frivolous “dumb news” stories like this are as bad as or worse than “fake news” stories that circulate on the internet. At the risk of offering a “hot take,” I propose that “dumb news” is a lot less trivial than many believe.

    Rothman’s column suggests a working definition of “dumb news” as coverage that appeals to the emotions of the audience and do not require much effort to understand:

    This kind of entry-level politics is not a new phenomenon, and its victims are bipartisan. Colin Kaepernick, the Black Lives Matter movement, college-age adults devolving into their childlike selves, or pretentious celebrities politicizing otherwise apolitical events; for the right, these and other similar stories masquerade as and suffice for intellectual stimulation and political engagement. The left is similarly plagued by mock controversies. The faces printed on American currency notes, minority representation in film adaptations of comic books, and astrophysicists insensitive enough to announce feats of human engineering while wearing shirts with cartoon depictions of scantily clad women on them. This isn’t politics but, for many, it’s close enough.

    Such stories, Rothman argues, merely appeal to tribalism and crowd out more important and complicated news. He was far from alone in these suggestions, if journalists’ Twitter feeds are any indicator.

    This Is More than Tribalism
    The stories catalogued, however, have more in common than a tribal, emotional component. Another name for “dumb news” might be “dispatches from the latest, nastiest iteration of the culture war.” Virtually all of the stories in this genre revolve around two features of the rising New New Left: identity politics and the impulse to enforce them in a totalitarian manner.

    Lincoln Reagan Day Dinner

    It’s been over sixty years since the Republican party controlled both the Wisconsin state government and the federal government at the same time. It’s a great time to be a Republican and those victories start with the grass roots.  

    Energized, we are looking forward to continuing our success.  This year, our Lincoln Reagan Day Dinner will take place on Saturday, March 11, 2017 at the Monona Terrace Convention Center.  In addition to celebrating President Lincoln’s and President Reagan’s remarkable lives and legacies, we will also celebrate our historic victories in Wisconsin and across the nation in 2016.  

    More details coming soon!
