A prominent figure in the losing GOP establishment had an odd message for high schoolers at a Turning Point USA conference on Tuesday.
“Raise your hand if you’ve ever posted anything online to quote-unquote ‘own the libs,’” said U.S. Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley at TPUSA’s High School Leadership Summit. “I know that it’s fun and that it can feel good, but step back and think about what you’re accomplishing when you do this — are you persuading anyone? Who are you persuading? We’ve all been guilty of it at some point or another, but this kind of speech isn’t leadership — it’s the exact opposite.”
“Owning the libs” is a popular phrase used by young people to describe proverbially beating down leftists online. According to Haley, fighting the left is not a good strategy. She’d rather we return to the era of conservative “persuasion” and “leadership.”
But the left does not care about civil discourse. Republicans are the enemy to the left, and they are treated as such. One does not reason with the enemy, rather one destroys the enemy. For precisely this reason, over the past 40 years conservatives have demonstrably lost on every single issue while trying to “persuade” and “lead.”
But still, Haley seems to prefer the losing approach.
“Real leadership is about persuasion, it’s about movement, it’s bringing people around to your point of view,” she said. “Not by shouting them down, but by showing them how it is in their best interest to see things the way you do.”
Earth to Nikki Haley: The liberals aren’t “coming around.” The only way for them to “come around” is for Republicans to capitulate to their demands. That’s how we got gay marriage, transgender bathrooms, abortion on demand and unfettered illegal immigration at the Southern border.
Conservative Inc. might want to tone down the rhetoric in order to avoid confrontation, but the new GOP – the one led by President Donald J. Trump, a president whose beliefs on issues like immigration and abortion actually match that of his voters – wants to keep winning.
The dying Republican establishment needs to either take a seat or join the other party. The new GOP will take it from here.

Roger Stone Files Motion to Remove Judge From Controversial Case
Stone was sentenced to 40 months in prison this week.
Roger Stone has filed a motion to remove the presiding judge from his controversial court case on Saturday, just days after the longtime Republican political operative was sentenced to a stringent 40-month prison term for lying to federal investigators.
Stone is seeking a new trial, and his legal team is pointing out evidence of Judge Amy Berman Jackson’s bias against their client as cause for a new judge. Jackson complimented the jury after they handed on the lengthy prison sentence on Stone for process crimes, stating that they had “served with integrity.”
There’s further reason to believe that Stone, a former adviser to President Donald Trump in the early days of his 2016 Presidential campaign, has been made a victim of deep-seated political bias during the trial, one of the few to result from Robert Mueller’s lengthy and ultimately empty Russian interference probe.
At least one juror has stepped forward to bemoan an effort by the DOJ to dial back aggressive prosecutors seeking to place Stone in prison for an even lengthier amount of time. Juror Tomeka Heart is a committed Democrat former congressional candidate. She’s posted at length on her personal social media about her personal dislike of President Trump.
It’s rather shocking that a juror with such a distinguishable political affiliation wouldn’t be passed up in a court case with direct national political implications. Stone’s lawyers mention Heart’s partisan affiliation in their court filing for a new trial and judge.
Stone currently remains free, pending his filing for a new trial.
Tucker Carlson discussed the pressing ethical lapses surrounding Stone’s conviction and sentencing during a segment on his show Thursday night.
