(Emphasis mine)
This does, of course, extend to the Conservative Hideout as well. If you wish to use materials from this site, you are free to do so, insomuch as you comply with the aforementioned Code. A link and credit is all we ask.

I have never accepted payment of any kind in exchange for publishing content supporting any cause or policy. Therefore, I am not in the employ of the insurance industry, the oil industry, the banking industry, the Republican Party, space aliens, the New World Order, or any other entity. Additionally, I do not receive “talking points” from any source. After all, I am NOT MSNBC. I publish what I believe, irregardless of who may like it, or not.
A Note on Commenting:
I believe in free speech. That being said, I frequently ban trolls, or do not even let them out the moderation queue. This site was started because organized trolling efforts from various leftist organizations intentionally disrupt Conservative Blogs and forums. This has been covered extensively here at the CH 2.0. The aim of most trolls is to not exchange ideas, or even debate-they come to distract, disrupt, and discourage. When confronted with facts, they change the subject. When proven wrong, they resort to personal attacks. Their intent is to prevent ideas and actions from being discussed.
Also, I own this site. I have paid for the hosting, so the team and I determine what happens here, just as other sites are able. To troll another person’s site is like shouting into someone’s living room. Therefore, I have little patience for it. If you want to practice Alinsky’s rules, do it elsewhere.
I have no desire to see Liberal blogs or forums banned. I do visit them to see what they are up to, but unlike them, I have no desire to prevent them from saying what they want. I have no desire to disrupt their ability to talk or communicate. Unfortunately, the left does desire to ban Conservative sites, so don’t try the free speech argument if you’re banned.
I universally condemn any efforts to “dox” persons and engage in harassment of them due to political disagreements. I denounce attempts to harass others via social media, email, by phone, contacting employers, or in any other way. Bullying has no place where truth is the “weapon of choice.” I leave the bullying tactics to the leftists, or supporters of statutory rape, who seem to do it frequently. That, however, does not mean that I won’t point out such activities to as many people who will read of it. The only way to resist bullying, and limit it’s effectiveness is to expose it to the light of day.
