    Some conservatives have begun speculating the unrest in American cities—even as late as Monday night in Washington, DC, as “protestors” unsuccessfully worked to tear down a statue of Andrew Jackson and set up an autonomous zone across the street from the White House—may in part be an attempt to affect the upcoming presidential election, with the chaos and violence intended to make it as difficult as possible for Donald Trump to win a second term. Lending credence to this idea is the fact that at least one board member of Thousand Currents—the group fiscally sponsoring the most organized part of...

    Hollywood actress Frances Fisher posted an inflammatory tweet this week calling for a “race war” in apparent response to the death of George Floyd who was arrested by former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin, who was seen on video putting his knee on Floyd’s neck. The Titanic and HBO’s Watchmen star also quoted convicted cop killer Assata Shakur before deleting the tweet. “They want a race war. We’ll give them a race war,” Frances Fisher wrote on Tuesday, according to an archived screenshot of the deleted tweet. She also expressed her support for the Black Lives Matter movement. “I’m with...

    “10 Democrats Boycott Trump’s State of the Union Address," declared a Voice of America article. "Another Trump critic, California Democrat Maxine Waters, said she would not attend, calling Trump a “dishonorable president.”  “Rep. Maxine Waters, another Democrat who made early calls for impeachment, applauded the senators who voted to remove Trump from office, acknowledging Republican Mitt Romney… Waters accused the other senators, all Republicans, of being “enemies of the rule of law and the Constitution,” BuzzFeed reported.A  Martian, briefly visiting earth, (or a “Woke” person reading the Fake News Media) would surmise that Maxine Waters cares deeply about “honor” and...

    It's time to expose the Black Lives Matter [BLM] movement for what it is: a racist, violent hate group that promotes the execution of police officers. The evidence is in their rhetoric and written on their shirts. If you take a look at the Black Lives Matter Twitter feed, you'll find photos of activists wearing shirts that say, "Assata Taught Me."  Looks like it's going down in Cleveland. Follow @FEARLESSnFREE and @LotusLightSage for more details pic.twitter.com/wVe6oKF7jn— Black Lives Matter (@Blklivesmatter) August 27, 2015 They're referring to infamous cop killer Assata Shakur, otherwise known as Joanne Chesimard, who shot and killed a...

    A conference featuring eight prominent 2020 Democrat presidential hopefuls kicked off in Washington, D.C,. with the fiery rallying cry of a fugitive cop-killer on Monday, as the labor and political groups in attendance shouted in unison, "We have nothing to lose but our chains." Jamal Watkins, the Vice President of Civic Engagement at the NAACP, began by telling the audience at the We the People conference that he would invoke the words of Assata Shakur, also known as Joanne Chesimard. Shakur was convicted of the 1973 murder of a New Jersey state trooper when she was in the Black Liberation...

    It is a man-bites-dog story when I support or applaud something that former President Barack Obama says or does. You may recall President Obama started a mentoring organization called My Brother’s Keeper. This initiative attempts to provide a responsible, positive message for young African-American men, a demographic plagued by poor lifestyle choices like dropping out of school, having multiple kids out of wedlock with different women, drug and alcohol abuse, gang involvement, and criminal and obnoxious behavior. These urban pathologies have been triggered by what I believe is our most urgent social crisis in the black community—absent fathers.Recent empirical data shows...

    Already missing from the news cycle is the story of Muslim leader Siraj Wahhaj, who alerted authorities to the squalid conditions in New Mexico in which his son, two daughters, another man and woman, and 11 children were living.Authorities arrived at the compound to some of the most horrifying conditions they had ever seen, and prosecutors identified the makeshift home as a training ground for militant children, including in carrying out school shootings. The imam’s son had been wanted for kidnapping his own four-year-old child, who had severe disabilities. The body of a young child was recovered from the...

Trump made the demand for the return of Joanne Chesimard while announcing changes to Obama-era Cuba policy in Miami Friday. Chesimard was convicted in 1977 in the death of Trooper Werner Foerster. He was killed during a gunfight after a traffic stop on the New Jersey Turnpike in 1973.

    Colin Kaepernick started out taking a knee during the national anthem to protest police brutality, but his activism has since expanded to encompass a wide range of leftist causes, including a group named after a convicted cop-killer. The Colin Kaepernick Foundation donated in April $25,000 to Assata’s Daughters, a Chicago “direct action” resistance organization honoring Assata Shakur, who escaped prison and fled to Cuba after being found guilty in the 1973 murder of Officer Werner Foerster. The grant includes $2,500 for CopWatch, a program that trains volunteers to follow and video police, and $15,000 for teen training, part of the...

    Joy Reid, radical leftist news commentator, went Tweet crazy when President Trump announced on Friday he was rescinding much of President Obama’s order loosening diplomatic relations with communist Cuba. And although most of them amounted to outrage that yet another imprudent Obama administration policy was going by the wayside, there is one President Trump should print out and tape to his office wall. “Trump name checks Assata Shakur (calls her by her former name, Joanne Chesimard) as a dog whistle to his people. #Trumping Cuba,” she tweeted. Reid is angry Trump not only rescinded what he called the “completely one-sided...

    Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., is a staunch defender of convicted cop killer and domestic terrorist Joanne Chesimard, who just became the first woman ever to be placed on the FBI’s Most Wanted List. Chesimard, living under asylum in Cuba, also goes by her Black Panther name of Assata Shakur. She was sentenced to life in prison after being convicted by a jury of the 1979 murder of a New Jersey state trooper. Less than two years later, Chesimard escaped from prison and lived underground before surfacing in Cuba in 1984.

    The Obama administration signed a law-enforcement agreement with Cuba Monday that doesn’t call for the return of U.S. fugitives, including former Black Panther Joanne Chesimard, who is wanted for killing a New Jersey police officer. The pact was signed by Jeffrey DeLaurentis, the de facto U.S. ambassador in Havana, and the Cuban Interior minister Julio César Gandarilla. It covers a broad range of law-enforcement topics, such as counternarcotics operations. Also present at the signing was White House deputy national security adviser Ben Rhodes, who played a key role in forging Mr. Obama’s policy of restoring diplomatic ties with Cuba in...

    The Black Lives Matter movement has come out in support of Fidel Castro, following his death on Friday, saying they must “come to the defense of El Comandante” and thanking him for safeguarding Assata Shakur, who’s on the FBI’s Most Wanted Terrorists list. The movement penned an article on Sunday titled “Lessons from Fidel: Black Lives Matter and the Transition of El Comandante” on the Medium platform where they eulogized the passing of the Cuban dictator. The article, which was not bylined, was Tweeted out by the closest thing there is to an official Black Lives Matter account and also...

    If the killings of 5 police officers in Dallas, Texas have shown us anything, it’s that violence breeds more violence, and extremism is a recipe to tear a national conscious apart. Black Lives Matter is seen by some as a modern Civil Rights movement where activists seek justice and reform by protest and activism. Issues such as police brutality, inconsistencies in the justice system, and broader inequality within the nation, are topics BLM has painted as crises for the country. The Black Lives Matter organization undermines any opportunity to seek meaningful reform on the issue of police use-of-force by instead...

    The White House refused to say Sunday whether President Obama would be talking to Cuban officials about US fugitives who have found a refuge there, but critics blasted the historic trip Sunday for rewarding Cuba while convicted cop-killer Joanne Chesimard remains free and President Raúl Castro’s human-rights abuses have worsened. […] Critics, led by New Jersey Sen. Bob Menendez, blasted Obama. “The simple truth is, deals with the devil require the devil to deal,” Menendez said in advance of the visit.
