Why Many Conservatives Won’t Be with
Their Children or Grandchildren This Christmas

There are probably hundreds of thousands of men and women who, because of political differences, maintain minimal or no contact with their parents and, even more cruelly, do not allow their parents to have any contact with their children—their parents’ grandchildren. Probably an unprecedented number of Americans with grown children will be alone this Christmas because their children will neither visit them nor invite them for the holiday dinner. In some rare instances of horrific parental behavior, this may be excusable, but when the reason is politics, it is inexcusable.(snip) In virtually every case, the parent is conservative, and the child is on the Left.


Prager attributes it to conscience. Lack of in leftist kids...

United we stand, divided we fall. It's what they want. Right/left. Vaccinated/vaccinated. Trump/not Trump. Whatever they can use to divide us. They know what they're doing.

And yet, I'll bet these same adult children expect that when Mommy and Daddy depart this earth, their earthy goods will shower down on their adult children. In my book, inheritances are earned, not an entitlement. I'd leave my money to homeless dogs, cats and iguanas before I rewarded such hateful adult children with anything upon my death, even so little as one dollar. Life isn't a one-way street unless you allow someone to make it that way.

I come from a large family and gatherings can be big so the unwritten rule...keep your damn mouth shut concerning politics. Life is too damn short , Using grandchildren as a political statement takes a low form of human trash.

I'm the opposite. I'm almost 60, and my mother is wildly liberal. She's so pro-abortion and pro-euthanasia that I can barely talk to her. She brings death up in every conversation, and it's exhausting.

My family can't win in arguments with me about politics or Christianity, so they keep their mouths shut. Especially since they have to justify and explain brandon. It gives me some good laughs, but for all the damage their senile old boy is doing, I'd prefer listening to their hatred of Trump.

An anecdotal story: my daughter’s friend has parents who are super liberal, though the friend and the friend’s brother are both conservative. The parents backed out of Thanksgiving dinner with their children and grandchildren this year because it was “too uncomfortable” for them. The kids don’t bring up politics, the parents do. On the other hand, in my own family all of my siblings are liberal. I absolutely am not. We never talk politics when we get together once a year. Our relationships with each other are of great value to us. We are much older though and have the perspective age and experience brings.

I just had a conversation with an "old war buddy" about how to avoid leaving money to his kids. Grandkids are also at risk of losing whatever 529 plan funds are left. Christmas presents this year will not be money, clothes, video games; everyone is getting a Bible.

Thanks to the asinine inheritance laws in Louisiana, the kids get whatever you leave. On the plus side, that's a great incentive to spend it all on trips, etc. so there's nothing left to leave.

A picture, they say, is worth a thousand words.

Ten establishment senators on Thursday helped Sen. Mike Lee’s (R-UT) Title 42 amendment fail, enabling the $1.7 trillion omnibus bill advance in the Senate, while providing political cover for 2024 endangered Democrat senators. Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) worked with Sens. Kyrsten Sinema (I-AZ) and Jon Tester (D-MT) Thursday morning to circumvent Lee’s amendment by crafting a side-by-side amendment to provide political cover for ten senators to ignore Lee’s Title 42 amendment, which was thawing a wrench into the passage of the omnibus bill.

Russia’s government spokesmen and diplomats responded scathingly to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky’s brief visit to Washington, DC, on Wednesday, mocking it as a “Hollywood-style trip” and claiming it confirmed America’s resolve to engage in a “proxy war” with Moscow. Zelensky arrived in D.C. as lawmakers mull over an end-of-year omnibus spending bill that would grant his government $45 billion in humanitarian and weapons aid, potentially bringing the total American taxpayers’ dollars spent on Ukraine this year to upwards of $110 billion. While some Republicans have questioned the wisdom of such an expense, Zelensky was greeted warmly in Congress on Wednesday evening, receiving bipartisan applause.

Democrat Senators defeated the Senate GOP’s plan to preserve the Title 42 border barrier by offering a fig-leaf Title 42 plan that would have accelerated the inflow of migrants. The amendment, prepared by Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) and Sen. Jon Tester (D-MT), was defeated by 87 votes to 10 votes after pro-migration groups opposed any changes to the 2023 omnibus bill. If the amendment had passed, it might have caused the entire bill to be defeated in the House. The Democrat amendment worked because it gave political cover to nine Democrat Senators to justify their vote against the GOP Title 42 amendment.

Zelensky visited a banana republic on Wednesday, a country rife with corruption and a state police that protects the crooked politicians while attacking dissidents. We call that banana republic the United States. It's fitting. America invented banana republics. More than a century ago, businessmen went to tropical countries in Central America, paid off the politicians, and made a mint. Red China is following the plan throughout the world with its Belt and Roadway Initiative.

If, as some recent polls suggest, Florida’s popular governor, Ron DeSantis, is able to mount a serious primary challenge to former President Trump, it will be because the governor understands political power is meant to be used. If DeSantis runs and wins, it will be because he persuaded Republican voters that he will be a more effective leader than Trump — not because he repudiated the former president’s policies or followers. The governor’s appeal is founded on his use of power. In this, he contrasts with the many conservatives who, upon gaining power, tend to be like the dog who caught the car — unsure what to do with it.

Ukraine’s Volodymyr Zelensky is slated to receive a hero’s welcome in the U.S. capital today, just as Congress is poised to award him another $45 billion in its mammoth inflationary spending bill. It may be Zelensky’s first time leaving Ukraine since the war with Russia began, but it’s not his first time appearing before an American audience to beg for more money. And it certainly won’t be his last. Already, Zelensky is prepared to use his congressional address to complain that the beaucoup bucks the U.S. has thrown at Ukraine in the last 10 months — more than $100 billion total if the omnibus passes — is still “not enough.”

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell laid blame on former President Donald Trump and a segment of his base for critical losses in key states during last month's midterm elections. McConnell told NBC News on Wednesday that Republicans failed to take the Senate due to Trump's hand-picked candidates, and promised to back "quality candidates" in the 2024 primaries. He also said Trump's "political clout has diminished." "We lost support that we needed among independents and moderate Republicans, primarily related to the view they had of us as a party—largely made by the former president—that we were sort of nasty and tended toward chaos,"

The WHO doesn’t mess around. At least when it comes to spreading propaganda. I will assume for the sake of civility that the WHO genuinely believes that the COVID vaccine is safe and effective. I will even assume that for most people the vaccine is safe, and at least somewhat effective in reducing the likelihood of severe disease in people likely to become deadly ill from COVID, such as the very old and very sick. But I will not concede that critics of the vaccine are spreading misinformation nor stoking unreasonable fears. Quite a few sober scientists and even the health officials of many OECD countries have expressed real and reasonable skepticism

The U.S. Census Bureau reported Thursday that 300,000 people left California in 2022, more than left any other state, amid a general slow increase in the U.S. population as the country recovered from COVID-19. The estimates cover the period from July 2021 to July 2022. It was the third consecutive annual decline for California, the Sacramento Bee noted, though births outnumbered deaths. The U.S. population grew by about 1.3 million people, thanks largely to the arrival of over 1 million migrants: After a historically low rate of change between 2020 and 2021, the U.S. resident population increased by 0.4%, or 1,256,003, to 333,287,557 in 2022,

McConnell said that Trump’s influence during the GOP primaries is to blame for their losses during the midterms and vowed to “actively look for quality candidates” in 2024 as he’s “less inclined to accept cards that may be dealt to us,” NBC reported.
