  • Exclusive–Read the Army’s ‘Operation Inclusion’ Email: Flyer Decries ‘Weaponized Whiteness,’ ‘Exceptionalism’

    A U.S. Army email inviting employees to listening sessions on race and diversity referred to an attachment to the email, which contained a graphic that said the phrase, “Make America Great Again” is evidence of white supremacy, according to a copy of the email obtained exclusively by Breitbart News. The email — sent on July 6, 2020, from the Army Missile & Aviation Center’s Equal Employment Opportunity Manager Chaney P. Pickard to employees at the center on the Redstone Arsenal Army Base in Alabama — invited employees to attend and said: “see attached timeline” for specific times for the listening...
  • How much will Drew Brees' offseason comments affect Saints?

    Drew Brees has backtracked considerably from his original comments this offseason about NFL players peacefully protesting during the national anthem, going so far as to counter the U.S. president by saying that protests have been about improving the black community rather than disrespecting the American flag. But his new stance didn't come before the New Orleans Saints quarterback riled up countless faces across professional sports, including in his own locker room. New Orleans had a relatively quiet few months following the 2019 campaign and improved a roster already stocked with Super Bowl-caliber talent, but then came this very public dispute....
  • Gavin Newsom caught wiring half a billion dollars to communist China in massive face mask money laundering scheme

    The sordid details of California Governor Gavin Newsom’s unwholesome dealings with communist China continue to emerge, including the shocking revelation that Newsom is quietly funneling hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars to the communist Chinese regime in exchange for political favors. Because California is certifiably bankrupt and on the verge of total economic collapse, Newsom appears to have forged a backroom deal with the Chicoms that involves him handing over taxpayer dollars in exchange for political bailouts. These include keeping California artificially afloat, as well as Newsom in office, at least until China can get troops on the ground as...

    Virginia “Ginni” Thomas, the prominent conservative activist married to Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, recently denounced a DC-area Black Lives Matter banner. Black Lives Matter is a “Trojan Horse” for “mob rule” and “cultural revolution,” Thomas wrote in a June 24 email to Clifton, Virginia, officials, the Washington Post reports. Thomas, who is white but whose husband is the only black Supreme Court justice, is influential in her own right in DC and in White House meetings and has pushed President Trump to pick more conservative aides. Thomas objected to a banner that reads “Welcome to Clifton where Black Lives...

    Police in New York are looking for the vandals who cut down a flagpole at a memorial honoring five firefighters who died in the September 11 terrorist attacks. The police chief of Washingtonville, a village north of New York City, told the Times-Herald Record that vandals used a tool to cut the flagpole about five feet from its base and then scrawled a message on the part left standing. Police discovered the damage early Wednesday and would not disclose the nature of the message.---

    CINCINNATI (WKRC) - Fourteen people arrested during the police violence protests in Cincinnati will face felony charges. They are accused of trying to assault police or damaging and looting stores. Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters announced the indictments on Thursday. "I will defend a person's right to peaceably protest and I always will. But when individuals use that occasion to loot, attack our police and their equipment and damage private and personal property and public property, I'm done with them." The 14 face a variety of charges including assault, breaking and entering and gun charges. Deters said none of those...

    Major League Baseball’s social media accounts has gone full woke with dozens of Black Lives Matter posts from the league and players alike. Pro baseball escaped from much of the anthem kneeling controversies in 2016 and 2017 by steering clear of wokeness for the most part. But that seems to be coming to an end if the league’s Twitter account is any indication of where baseball is headed. MLB’s Twitter feed is filled with paeans to Black Lives Matter that have been given the MLB endorsement with official posts and re-tweets.

    House Democrats plan to introduce a new bill to defund police departments, establish reparations for Blacks and victims of police brutality, abolish federal law enforcement agencies, and more. Democrat Reps. Rashida Tlaib and Ayanna Pressley unveiled the BREATHE Act, which has not yet been introduced in the House, calling it “a new vision for public safety.” The bill was created by the Movement for Black Lives, a self-proclaimed abolitionist, anti-capitalist group, who also participated in its unveiling.

    Fifteen years ago, NBC morning superstar Katie Couric uncorked one of the lamest jokes in network history by suggesting when gas neared $3 a gallon "It’s ridiculous. I had to take out a loan to fill up my minivan." She had an eight-figure annual income. On Thursday, this shtick popped up again on Morning Joe when Willie Geist cracked to Al Sharpton about Mayor Bill de Blasio having "Black Lives Matter" painted on 5th Avenue right in front of Trump Tower: "Rev, guys like you and I can't necessarily shop on 5th Avenue. We just look into the windows and...

    LA Times ^ | July 9, 2020 | Charles F.H. Davis III
    Under intense pressure from mostly Black community organizers, some local governments are responding to demands to defund the police and divest from law enforcement. The push to reduce police budgets and reliance on police intervention in noncriminal matters has been accompanied by calls to invest in more resources for people and communities. Not surprisingly, the same demands advanced by police abolitionists off-campus have also emerged from students, faculty and staff at colleges and universities around the country. In some cases, that has already happened. The University of Minnesota, for example, responded to the demand of the undergraduate student government by...

    To paraphrase Winston Churchill, now is not the end of Black Lives Matter. This isn’t even the beginning of the end. It is, perhaps, the end of the beginning. Never before has a movement gained such sudden acclaim, attention, and affection from both the media and pop culture. In the span of just a few weeks, Black Lives Matter became a devout religion in our country. You couldn’t dare criticize or question it. To do so would result in you immediately being labeled a heretic. I mean, a racist. But eventually, the truth began to catch up with Black Lives...

Despite all the media BS about peaceful protests, Americans are not so willing to go along with ripping down all the statues of heroes and saints, burning and looting the business districts and threats to abolish the police. According to a new poll by Democracy Institute the fallout from the Black Lives Matter protests and riots will win President Trump his reelection.

    The usual anti-racism crowd is punting.....In early June, Drew Brees of the New Orleans Saints refused to take a knee because he didn’t want to insult the flag. Black NFL players lined up to denounce him. ‘Ignorant,’ said his black teammate Emmanuel Sanders. ‘Drew’s words were extremely painful to hear,’ another black Saint, Malcolm Jenkins said, ‘and I hope he rectifies them with real action.’ ‘If you don’t speak about racism, then you’re a part of the problem,’ said A.J. Brown of the Tennessee Titans. A month later, in early July, DeSean Jackson of the Philadelphia Eagles posted on Instagram...
