  • Marco Rubio’s Black Lives Matter commentary is suddenly relevant, for some reason

    The Washington Post's The Fix ^ | October 3, 2015 | Janell Ross
    There’s a kind of narrative that tends to develop about every candidate for president. Donald Trump is a braggart willing to mercilessly criticize anyone who dares to criticize him. Ben Carson’s patrician, maybe even laconic public speaking style camouflages his controversial -- even incendiary -- ideas. Former Florida governor Jeb Bush is a well-funded and cerebral but socially awkward WASP. And Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), the boy wonder, has purchased real estate in the safest and most carefully staged campaign zip codes, biding his time for when Trump flames out. You’ll note that beyond perhaps Trump, not one of the...

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)On Monday’s edition of NewsOne Now, Roland Martin posed a question about the upcoming presidential election and one of the largest movements in recent history: “Should the Black Lives Matter movement invite Republican and Democratic presidential candidates to a debate/forum in an attempt to force them to address issues important to the African-American community?” There would be pros and cons behind holding the forum, NewsOne Now panelist Paris Dennard told Martin: “It would be very telling to those candidates who take this seriously and who may not agree with the slogan or the hashtag, but understand there are pros behind...

    Barack Obama really does think he’s a king. He’s now redistributing $29 million of taxpayer dollars to the families of the nine people murdered by Dylann Roof in Charleston, South Carolina. That comes to $3.2 million per family. Where in the Constitution does it say the president can or should do this? This looks like theft.

    EXCLUSIVE: De Blasio administration joins fight against law that would exclude immigrants, felons from voting district count The de Blasio administration has joined a Supreme Court fight that could change the way voting districts are carved up to exclude residents like immigrants and felons from the population count, the Daily News has learned. If successful, Evenwel vs. Abbott would dramatically change the political landscape in immigrant-rich communities like New York, because it would draw districts to include only eligible voters. Immigrants, felons who have lost the right to vote and children would be excluded. In court papers filed last week,...

    Front Page Magazine ^ | October 2, 2015 | Daniel Greenfield
    Was he a Half-White Supremacist? According to the LA Times, Chris Harper Mercer, the Oregon killer, was a "White Supremacist". One slight problem. Mercer identified as multi-racial. His mother was black. He doesn't seem to have even known his father. He identified with black TV killer Vester Lee Flanagan. This doesn't seem to have stopped the media with George Zimmerman who was labeled a white Hispanic, so maybe Chris Harper Mercer was a white Black? Was he a Half-White Supremacist? I'm not an expert on "White Supremacism", but being half-black and then shooting a bunch of white Christians would make...

Her article, titled "White Fragility Is Racial Violence," begins by saying, "White people, we are massively failing with our white fragility. When we are asked to do the very least in empathetic listening, we center entire conversations around our own feelings." Shroyer continues, "As white people living in white supremacy we have the power to take that focus because society values our words more than those of people of color."

    ---SNIP--- The lead story on the diversity of education in city schools features a photo that has no African American students, even though their school is 60 percent non-white. Tom McGrath, the magazine's editor, took responsibility for the photo, which shows seven students from Albert M. Greenfield Elementary School sitting along a brick wall outside its Center City campus. "We blew it," McGrath wrote. "To include not even one African American child on the cover fails to reflect not just the diversity that exists at the Greenfield School, but also that within the city of Philadelphia."

    President Obama late Sunday predicted marriage equality probably won’t be an issue in the 2016 presidential race, saying the U.S. has “come too far” since the 2004 campaign. "Tonight we live in an America where 'Don't Ask Don't Tell' is something that 'don't exist,' " he said to cheers and applause at the beginning of his remarks to a Democratic National Committee LGBT gala in New York, according to a reporter traveling with the president. The president told the audience that cynics who said change is “too messy” have been proven wrong time after time. Obama also said that 2016...

"None of us can ignore what is happening in this country. Not when our black friends, family, neighbors literally fear dying in the streets." Warren said. "This is the reality all of us must confront, as uncomfortable and ugly as that reality may be. It comes to us...

    New York Times ^ | September 28, 2015 | MICHAEL JAVEN FORTNER
    ... Today’s disastrously punitive criminal justice system is actually rooted in the postwar social and economic demise of urban black communities. It is, in part, the unintended consequence of African-Americans’ own hard-fought battle against the crime and violence inside their own communities. To ignore that history is to disregard the agency of black people and minimize their grievances, and to risk making the same mistake again. The draconian Rockefeller drug laws, for example, the model for much of our current drug policies, were promoted and supported by an African-American leadership trying to save black lives. During the 1960s, concentrated poverty...

    The Obama White House rolled out the red carpet this week for leaders of the racist revolutionary Black Lives Matter movement, providing yet more confirmation that the Obama administration supports its members' increasingly violent activism. News of the meeting comes after a Southern police chief was given the boot for posting a note critical of Black Lives Matter and of President Obama's incessant race-baiting. Black Lives Matter is animated not only by anti-white racism but by a hatred of normal American values, including law and order. Its members denounce the U.S. for imagined institutional racism and discrimination against African-Americans. Members...

Jesse Jackson drew attention to Silicon Valley’s lack of diversity and spurred Google, Facebook, Twitter, Yahoo and many others to start issuing “diversity reports” to hold themselves accountable. But now he has a new target: the unicorns, which are delaying their IPOs and, in a sense, public scrutiny, as they look to establish markets around...

    A disturbing trend in recent weeks has convinced Americans that an all-out assault is being waged on our men and women in uniform. From a gas station murder in Houston, to a shooting ambush in New York City and a slaying in Illinois, police officers across the country are afraid to do their jobs because it is apparent that the people they pledged to protect are turning on them. The majority of Americans are not blind to the new dangers police face. A Rasmussen Reports survey reveals that 58 percent would agree a war on police is being waged in the...

    When the organization known as Black Lives Matter (BLM) was first formed right after George Zimmerman’s acquittal in the death of Trayvon Martin on July 13, 2013, most overlooked the true intentions of the group beyond their calls for “justice”. Fast forward to today and it can no longer be overlooked that their calls for justice now result in retaliatory violence against those whom they believe are the oppressors, namely white people in general and police officers specifically. By tracing the origins of the organization back to its philosophical formation in the 1960’s, we can begin to see how BLM...
  • Dear Black Pastors: Tell The #BlackLivesMatter Lunatics To Chill Out

    I’m guessing that the majority of the anti-white, pro-cop killing, #BlackLivesMatter thugs … I mean … “activists” are predominantly, albeit loosely, Christian by persuasion. I could be wrong, but I would be willing to bet that they either grew up in church and/or still go to church in between their “death to cops” marches and their looting schedules. Now, I’m sure some of them could be Muslim or one of Farrakhan’s step-n-fetchits. That’s a possibility. Which would explain their penchant and approval for executing innocent white deputies while they’re filling up their patrol cars. We all know Mohammad just LOVES...

    BERLIN, N.H. -- The Republican primary's scramble to the right has led to pointed criticism of the Black Lives Matter movement, and of the Obama administration's approach to police reform. After Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) criticized the president for "vilifying" law enforcement, other candidates found reasons to blame Democrats for an atmosphere where protesters could chant threats to police. "In the last six years under President Obama, we've seen a rise in anti-police rhetoric," wrote Gov. Scott Walker (R-Wis.) in an op-ed this week. "Instead of hope and change, we've seen racial tensions worsen and a tendency to use law...

    I’m not sure if I believe the words from Obama’s Department of Justice Attorney General that condemn the upsurge in police attacks, especially after they’ve been actively encouraging “Black Lives Matter” to protest against cops and blame whitey for everything. Watch below:(video at link)The media won’t report it and that’s why conservative media is so important. And that’s why we appreciate every tweet and every facebook share you give us, because that’s the only way we can get the word out and defeat the liberal media narrative.

    An Ohio woman's lawsuit alleging a Downers Grove sperm bank error that led to the birth of her biracial daughter has been thrown out of court. A DuPage County judge Thursday dismissed the lawsuit against Midwest Sperm Bank, saying the woman's wrongful birth claim and breach of warranty were not viable claims under state law. The suit, originally filed last November in Cook County, was refiled in DuPage County in March. Judge Ronald Sutter then gave attorneys for Jennifer Cramblett of Uniontown, Ohio, 14 days to refile the lawsuit as a negligence claim. Thomas Intili, a Dayton, Ohio attorney representing...
