    Activists have successfully forced Mastercard to hold a vote by shareholders on a proposal which, if passed, could see the company monitoring payments to global far-right political leaders and white supremacist groups. The proposal aims to see Mastercard establish an internal “human rights committee” that would stop designated white supremacist groups and anti-Islam activists, such as Tommy Robinson, from getting access to money sent from donors using the company’s card payment services. It’s been conceived by US-based political activists SumOfUs, who want to escalate the battle against white supremacists and far-right groups from tech platforms like Facebook, Google, Twitter, Patreon,...
  • Environmental activists sit amongst discarded plastic bottles, shopping bags, single-use coffee cups

    They have been brought disruption to London for days while campaigning for more to be done to protect the environment from climate change. But protesters from Extinction Rebellion appear to be less bothered about plastic waste after being spotted surrounded by bottles and coffee cups in central London. Plastic carrier bags and disposable coffee cups from chain shops are dotted around their bags and blankets in Oxford Circus as well as separate demonstrations in Marble Arch and outside Jeremy Corbyn's house in Islington. Single-use plastic has become a huge environmental concern with around 104million tonnes dumped in the natural world...
  • Jussie Smollett learned how to lie from his communist mother

    I have been truthful and consistent on every single level since day one. I would not be my mother's son if I was capable of one drop of what I've been accused of. Mother Janet Harris Smollett taught him well — lies are facts that will happen sometime, somewhere, because America is a racist, oppressive country. Janet has quite a history of intimate involvement with communists, black supremacists, and Black Panthers, so it is no surprise that Jussie was involved in an anti-Trump hoax with his red diaper baby upbringing. Jussie's tweets about President Trump during the campaign and after...
  • DC's many prankster activists turn anger into street theater

    In the nation's capital, it can be hard for protesters to stand out. A group of 50 people — or even 500 — holding signs and shouting hardly merits a second glance in this city of protests. That's why Washington activists have to get creative. There's an ethos of performative prankster-style protest wired into the District of Columbia's history, dating back decades. This confrontational street-theater school is flourishing with the Trump administration as its nemesis. Each month brings new acts of political theater — some confrontational, some deliberately absurdist. "It can take a serious issue into more of a playful...

    The progressive-left have moved the goal posts in their dangerous game of hate. After January 18, 2019, civil society will have to come up with a way to protect school kids from physical harm called for by the unhinged surrogates of the far left Like the Fake News that wholly created and sustains him, Native American rights activist Nathan Phillips seems to have a low regard for facts and truth in what really happened to the students of Covington School on January 18. Like so many of the made-to-order activists sent out by progressive-left ‘Rebels With A Trumped-up Cause’, Phillips...

    The radicals are still nothing but a screeching fringe, a boil on the rump of society Expect no let up from the pain caused by the ‘We Didn’t Come To Play, We Came to Destroy the USA’, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez-led radicals trying to run Congress into the ditch. Almost overnight government is no longer government only unadulterated activism, congress is no longer a place for legislation or debate but only activist-engendered catfights where scratching and hissy fits are the order of the day. That’s what you get when activists become power-drunk politicians.

    Let me be blunt. It’s obvious to me that the political right needs a fighting force—an organized ground level force built for the political conflicts of the 21st century. Politics has become a contact sport. This force must be unlike many GOP political figures who want to avoid contact and seem obsessed with being admired by the left and the editorial boards of the New York Times and CNN, rather than pushing back against the people seeking to destroy them. Who was it that said, you can’t fix stupid? The left aided by the liberal media has declared war on...

    SEATTLE - A Washington state judge has dismissed a lawsuit filed by young activists who argued the state is violating their rights by failing to protect them from climate change. In his ruling Tuesday, King County Superior Court Judge Michael Scott says the issues in the case are political questions that must be addressed by the legislative and executive branches and cannot be resolved by a court.

    I thought about it, and I realized that it wasn't so long ago that such minor travesties and often much, much worse were things black people lived through every day. I thought about it, and I realized that it wasn't so long ago that such minor travesties and often much, much worse were things black people lived through every day. While it was never something I ever had to worry about in my life, millions of minorities did have to worry about things like that. That being said, I think what happened at the Starbucks in Philly doesn't pass the...

    The Texas Department of Transportation has a contractor lined up to add a lane to each side of Texas 130 through Pflugerville, a popular commuter route that often backs up during rush hour.But the $36.7 million contract with OHL Construction is now caught up in the freeze on toll road projects — even though the project would be an expansion of an existing toll road, funded with toll road revenue. It would not use money from the gas, sales and energy taxes that have been the target of grass-roots anti-toll groups.“The planning and (bidding) has been done. The contractor is ready...

    Illegal alien activists shielded from deportation by the President Obama-created Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program and Democrats are blaming each other for unsuccessfully passing an amnesty. Last month, the open borders lobby, illegal alien activists, and Democrats failed to coalesce behind a number of amnesty plans for DACA illegal aliens that would have, at the same time, offset the amnesty with a reduction in legal immigration to benefit America’s working and middle class. Now, the two groups — the activists and Democrats — are blaming each other for the failed effort that is expected to result in DACA...

    The “LEAVE OUR CHILDREN ALONE!” chant is one that should rise up today. It didn’t take the Women’s March Youth EMPOWER—an offshoot of Women’s March, which “upholds the unity principles of the Women’s March platform” to go rushing in on the exploitation of the mass murder at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. In fact it took them less than 24 hours to begin recruiting school children for a nationwide school walk-out, some of those children still grieving the deaths of their Marjory Stoneman Douglas classmates.

    We really haven’t invested any virtual ink in the story of Jean-Marie Simon, the United Airlines passenger who was bumped from her first class seat in favor of Texas Democratic congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee. After all, terrible things happening to people flying on United are pretty much dog bites man stories these days. But the response of both Jackson Lee and the airline to the kerfuffle is turning it into a bit more of a newsworthy item. The explanation for the alleged “mistake” and lack of a formal apology have resulted in United’s customer service department taking another self-inflicted wound....

    If both the Dem party and their running-dog activists could be identified by sound, it would be from donkey braying to pitiful squeaks, to a last ditch desperate attempt calling for screaming at the sky Activists who come on the goose step to every order issued by their progressive/left masters will do anything to amplify the pitiful squeak the Russians-stole-the-election front has now been reduced to. The pathetic squeak heard throughout the Hillary Clinton/Democratic National Committee coven will be boosted November 8 by ear-piercing “Scream helplessly at the sky” events on the anniversary of the 2016 election.

    Shareholder activists say they shake up companies by bringing in new, better ideas. What they don't bring, it turns out, is women. Or people of color. Firms targeted by activists end up with more white men on their boards, often replacing women and minorities in the process, according to a study by proxy-voting firm ISS. The researchers looked at 380 board seats spread across 93 companies in the S&P 1500 index targeted by activists between 2011 and 2015. A separate Bloomberg News analysis of the same period found that five of the biggest U.S. activist funds sought 174 board positions...
