    A riot has erupted in Philadelphia after a black male was shot by police after charging at officers with a knife. The shooting took place shortly before 5 p.m. on Monday, and footage of the incident quickly went viral on social media. The man, Walter Wallace, was pronounced dead at the hospital. “Officers ordered him several times to drop the weapon,” Philadelphia Police Sergeant Eric Gripp said. “He did not do so.”

    A Rasmussen survey released October 7, 2020, shows that 57 percent of Republicans and 39 percent of Democrats have a gun in their home. Rasmussen found that 37 percent of politically “unaffiliated” Americans have a gun in their home as well. Overall, 43 percent of American adults say someone in their home owns a gun, and slightly over 1/5 of those say “they or someone in their household has purchased a gun since the violent anti-police protests began.”

    Rochester Mayor Lovely Warren was indicted Friday on charges she broke campaign finance rules and committed fraud during her reelection campaign three years ago. Monroe County District Attorney Sandra Doorley also announced charges against Warren’s campaign treasurer, Albert Jones Jr., and the treasurer of her political action committee, Rosalind Brooks-Harris. The indictment dramatically increases political peril for Warren, who was already facing calls to resign for the city’s handling of the suffocation of Daniel Prude. The Democrat is midway through her second term as the first female and second Black mayor of Rochester, a city of more than 200,000 by...
  • Tucker Carlson draws in more viewers than highly anticipated Game 4 Lakers-Nuggets matchup

    This week's Thursday night episode of Tucker Carlson Tonight on Fox News pulled in more viewers than the highly anticipated Game 4 NBA match between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Denver Nuggets. That game drew 4.6 million viewers, while Carlson's show brought in 140,000 more than that. The comparatively low numbers continue a trend of plummeting viewership in the NBA, the numbers of which are down roughly 40% since the 2018 season and 27% from last year. Some commentators have blamed that drop on the League's increasing politicization, particularly beginning in mid-2020 as more and more players began coming...

    As the decision in Kentucky to bring charges against only one of three police officers involved in a raid that killed Breonna Taylor sparks renewed protests nationwide, a new survey finds support has fallen for demonstrations against systemic racism. The poll from The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research finds that 44% of Americans disapprove of protests in response to police violence against Black Americans, while 39% approve. In June, 54% approved. The new survey was conducted Sept. 11-14, before Wednesday's announcement that a lone Louisville police officer would be charged in the Taylor case, but not for her...

    Three different white liberals in authority roles within universities and activist movements have apologized this month for pretending to be black — and they aren’t the only ones to get caught lying about their racial identities. Satchuel Cole, an Indianapolis racial justice activist, apologized on Wednesday for misrepresenting her racial identity. “Friends, I need to take accountability for my actions and the harm that I have done. My deception and lies have hurt those I care most about. I have taken up space as a Black person while knowing I am white,” Cole wrote on Facebook. “I have used Blackness...

    MSNBC host Joy Reid gave a full-throated defense of Black Lives Matter, insisting demonstrators pushing for racial justice don't riot and blaming President Trump for the violence she said is being fueled by "white nationalist mobs." Reid on Saturday shared a local Seattle report from June, suggesting that Black Lives Matter isn't responsible for the unrest because of the 81 arrests that were made at the time and included race in court documents, 32 were White and only eight of them were Black; in addition, more than 70 percent of those arrests were from outside the Seattle area. "Let me...

    Kenosha, Wisconsin. How many people before this weekend’s riots and terrorism had ever heard of Kenosha, Wisconsin? I had. I grew up not far from there. It’s a small city of about 100,000 that feels like a small town. And now the organized left have ravaged Kenosha. And if past is prologue, the terrorists will continue to ravage Kenosha. This will go on night after night after night because the Democrat Party and the establishment media are not only fine with it, they encourage it.

    The months of protests and riots in Portland have prompted some businesses in the city to opt to move out completely or relocate outside its central district, according to a report on Monday. Greg Goodman, the co-president of the Downtown Development Group, said in a letter to Mayor Ted Wheeler and members of the Portland City Council that the exodus of companies wasn’t related to the Black Lives Matter movement “but does have most everything to do with the lawlessness you are endorsing downtown.” “The number is like nothing I have seen in 42 years of doing business in downtown,”...

    Trump supporters have been holding weekly rallies in Los Angeles and about 200 of them were gather in Beverly Gardens Park in Beverly Hills on Saturday. But a few dozen Black Lives Lives Matter people showed up to “counter protest” and got violent. They came apparently trying to start fights with the Trump supporters. It also seemed like there were more people of color on the Trump side than the BLM side. @FreemanReporter caught video of one big sucker punch from one of the BLM group attacking a Trump supporter. But the Trump supporter reportedly got up and told him...

    Mayor Lori Lightfoot (D) put the blame for the rioting and looting going on in Chicago on President Trump, saying that "people are frustrated over his coronavirus response. They're particularly scared about being forced to go back to work. Trump's indication that the government checks everyone has been getting during the pandemic won't be permanent is frightening. People felt safe staying home knowing that the money they need to live would be in their mail box or bank account each week. Now, they're terrified." "Terrified people do terrifying things," the Mayor reasoned. "Breaking windows and looting stores should have been...
