    A protester climbs a Confederate monument with a chain in an attempt to topple it Sunday, Aug. 13, 2017, in Atlanta. The peace monument at the 14th Street entrance depicts an angel of peace stilling the hand of a Confederate soldier about to fire his rifle. Protesters decrying hatred and racism converged around the country on Sunday, saying they felt compelled to counteract the white supremacist rally that spiraled into deadly violence in Virginia. The group that erected an Atlanta monument depicting a Confederate soldier vowed Monday that it will be repaired after protesters splattered it with red spray paint...

    Here he is: the dandy ex-campaign manager of Donald Trump, the Bush Crime Family, and the soul of the true Republican party dating back to the Nixon era -- and still going strong. The audio is terrible, the video is low quality. But grass roots politics doesn't get any better than a Roger Stone pep talk!

The organizers of the rally say they will urge President Trump to call the rally a "white supremacist convention."

    An Atlanta gym owner is making no apologies after his ban on police officers and members of the military caused a local backlash. The controversy started when passersby noticed a sign posted in front of EAV Barbell Club in the city’s East Atlanta Village neighborhood and brought it to the attention of local NBC affiliate WXIA. “Do whatever the f— you want, correctly, except crossfit cultism. No f—g cops,” the sign reportedly read. The gym’s owner, Jim Chambers, said he took the sign down and regretted the profanity, but the policy still stands. “We’ve had an explicitly stated ‘No Cop’...

    An east Atlanta gym is receiving backlash after the owner posted a sign on the window prohibiting police officers and military members from obtaining a membership. The sign gained attention when a former service member saw it on the window of EAV Barbell Club with profanity, and reported it to media outlets. The owner of the gym, Jim Chambers, claims the policy was put in place because the minority population he serves are uncomfortable in the presence of law enforcement. Chambers claims this policy has been in place since the gym opened. The self-proclaimed political activist told media outlets he...

    A federal judge has dismissed a class-action racial discrimination lawsuit filed by current and former black employees of Time Warner, owner of Turner networks including CNN, TNT and TBS. U.S. District Court Judge William Duffey of the Northern District of Georgia said in Tuesday’s order that the employees didn’t meet legal standards to prove “a pattern and practice of intentional race discrimination.” The lawsuit filed in December claimed a pattern of discrimination against black employees, particularly men, in evaluations, pay and promotions. …
  • Americans Protest ‘Very Fake News’ CNN Outside of Atlanta Headquarters

    ATLANTA, Georgia — More than 150 protesters charged the CNN headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia to share their disgust with the network’s peddling of “fake news” against President Trump’s administration. With signs reading “FNN #FakeNewsNetwork” and others targeting the networks’ advertisers such as AT&T and Microsoft, protesters chanted “CNN fake news!” directly in front of the CNN Centers’ signature logo. Protesters told Breitbart News that the rally against CNN was an effort to call out the media corporation for its unbalanced coverage of the Trump administration and its targeting of Americans, most specifically the creator of the anti-CNN wrestling match meme...

    Unlike some, at least we don’t use witchcraft to get our point across! In years past, the alt-Left has resorted to using spells, pointy hats and rituals as a protest tactic. On Saturday, July 22 at noon, a group of ordinary Americans will be flocking to Atlanta. With our placards, megaphones and passion for the truth, we’ll gather in front of CNN World Headquarters. We’ll promise to leave the eye-of-newt and toe-of-frog at home, however! StopTheScalpings and The Media Equality Project are joining with Mainstreet Patriots by hitting CNN in “their house”. Why are we taking this extraordinary step? Simply...

    At the Knife Check for President Donald Trump's speech at the NRA Annual Meeting in Atlanta, I noticed that they were getting a few black composite ice scrappers.I asked about them and was told that they were being given away at a booth near the FN display. As I wandered around looking for the black ice scrapers, I noticed the Choate Machine Tool booth.Choate had made a fiberglass reinforced letter opener in the 1980's so I decided to ask them if they knew about the ice scrappers. That is us, they said, and hauled out a bag of ice...

    One of the hits at the NRA Annual Meeting in Atlanta was the Pyramid Air gun range. It was set up in one of the meeting rooms one level up and not far from the NRA exhibit hall.While I was there, empty spaces on the firing line were filled very quickly.There were 10 stations on line and roughly twice as many air guns available as there were shooting stations.There were young, old, male, female, all sorts of shooters on the line. They seemed to exhibit the same expressions: Intense concentration followed by big grins.A wide variety of air guns were...

    Gun Watch ^ | 29 April, 2017 | Dean Weingarten
    For the last three NRA Annual Meetings, open and concealed carry have been legal and practiced on the premises.  In 2015 it was at Nashville in Tennessee. In 2016, it was at Louisville in Kentucky.  In 2017, it is in Atlanta, Georgia. Today in the press room, there were a few open carriers. From the printing that I noticed here and there, there were a significantly greater number of concealed carriers. I was one of those. The Press room was rather chilly for a Yuma, Arizona resident. I kept my jacket on.  Out on the floor, there were few...

    A Friday press release from Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America promised "hundreds" of gun safety advocates would rally with Shannon Watts, Rep. John Lewis (D-GA) in Atlanta, protesting the NRA's "extremist" agenda. As Bob Owens at Bearing Arms reported, the crowd was almost nonexistent. The @MomsDemand / @Everytown protest at #NRAAM2017 is clearly exciting. Security estimates just 75-100 attendees. pic.twitter.com/FvYxtL0sVo — Bob Owens (@bob_owens) April 29, 2017 Unwilling to admit defeat, Watts tweeted a picture designed to show a much larger crowd. Per security at the park, actual count was 75-100. @MomsDemand ALWAYS grossly inflates their actual...

    Michale Bloomberg's purchased gun control groups Mom's Demand Action and Everytown promised to "confront" the National Rifle Association in Atlanta (GA) during the NRA's Annual Meetings and Exhibits. It was a less than impressive event. According to an officer providing security at the event, Mom's Demand and Everytown brought just 75-100 people to Woodruff Park to "confront" the NRA, at a venue 7/10ths of a mile away from the Annual Meetings. The twinned gun control groups appear to have attempted to pad their numbers by handing out tee shirts to the many homeless people inhabiting the park, though most...

    The NRA Convention is in Atlanta at the end of this week, and Trump is attending. I also know there's little to no chance I'm getting a seat (I'm not a member anyway), so will there be any rallies going on in the area to mark the occasion? The Berkeley videos are fresh on my mind, and I'll be damned if I stand by while Antifa tries to crash the party. Thanks in advance, everybody!
