Conservatives – We’re a Family, Not a Collective

6/24/2015
More
Today’s Democrat Party is the Borg – remember when they were first introduced? The big bad. There was simply no way to stop them. But of course, the Federation won. More than that, the crew of the Enterprise won – because they behaved like the family that they are. The power of a family to […] The post Conservatives – We’re a Family, Not a Collective appeared first on The Refinery Show.

The Conservative Ghetto

6/17/2015
More
Lefty writers and bloggers and experts are just quoted as writers, bloggers, or experts. Conservatives are ALWAYS given the adjective “conservative consultant” or “ultra-conservative blog”. We sometimes do the same – describing our products as “the conservative daily show” or whatever. The media separates us out, otherizing us. Why do we have to do the […] The post The Conservative Ghetto appeared first on The Refinery Show.

Authenticity and Integrity Matter

6/10/2015
More
This week’s theme was authenticity and integrity – and the ways that they matter to the conservative movement, and the culture in general. The Red Cross came under fire for their lack of integrity in handling the massive amount of funds they got for Haiti. Some college students lack the integrity to pay back the […] The post Authenticity and Integrity Matter appeared first on The Refinery Show.

They’ll Make A Weapon Out Of Anything

4/15/2015
More
The left is always on attack, always prepared to turn any slight mistake into a weapon and use it against us. It’s exhausting to always have to defend against this stuff, but it’s what we have to do if we want to win.

Journalism is Dead – it’s all Media Activism now

4/8/2015
More
Journalism is dead – it’s all media activism now. In fact, we should stop calling them journalists and call them Media Activists – or if there’s a better term we’d love to hear it.

So we start out with a game […] The post Journalism is Dead – it’s all Media Activism now appeared first on The Refinery Show.

4/1/2015
More

Division and separation are tearing us apart

3/25/2015
More
Look around and all you see is people dividing each other into groups, separating themselves from others. That’s not bad in and of itself, but it really keeps us from moving forward in any meaningful way. Pro-life folks position themselves apart from women in need,and can end up positioning themselves as a weird, offensive “other”.

Dishonesty ended up being the running theme through this week’s podcast. The denial side of it is dangerously evident in the speeches we get from the State Department – Marie Harf saying that #Jobs4Jihadis would fix things better than just killing them all. Then there’s the political-spin type of dishonesty in the debate about the […]
