    The Washington Standard ^ | 12-16-2017 | Tim Brown
    It's funny how when you report on things that people call you a "conspiracy theorist" and opine, "our government would never do that."  Such was the case of plenty of commenters back in 2014 when the protests and standoff took place in Bunkerville, Nevada at Bundy Ranch.  Well, there was clearly a kill list by government agents as to who was to be targeted and at the top of the list was none other than Cliven Bundy. On Friday, I reported on a letter from Bureau of Land Management agent Larry Wooten, and Washington State Rep. Matt Shea's comments regarding...
  • 'Jingle Bells' Rooted in Racism, Boston University Professor Says (Who Knew?)

    “Jingle Bells,” one of the most well-known Christmas carols in the world, is now being called racist. A Boston University theater professor claims the Christmas carol has a “problematic history” because it was originally performed to make fun of African Americans. “The legacy of ‘Jingle Bells’ is one where its blackface and racist origins have been subtly and systematically removed from its history,” Kyna Hamill, a BU theater historian, wrote in her “Theatre Survey” research paper on the story of “Jingle Bells.” “Although ‘One Horse Open Sleigh,’ for most of its singers and listeners, may have eluded its racialized past...

    Now, I have to start with a disclaimer. I do so since the last time I received unsolicited information, I ended up spending 7 days in jail and the Court (Judge Anna Brown) didn’t believe me in my sworn testimony, but she did believe a conversation I had with Schuyler Barbeau, in an effort to cheer him up, while he was still in jail.I received in the mail, with no return address, an 18 page email that I had heard about. However, the details in what I had heard were minimal, at best. But, having the whole 18 pages, I...

    Crime is the base problem for a number of poor urban areas. Wherever you have high crime, you have trouble attracting employers. And without employment options, you end up with poverty, a low tax base to support schools, hopelessness, drug dealing, and the rest. So I thought I would share some ideas for reducing urban crime. The first idea comes from Black Lives Matters out of New York. I can’t judge this sort of idea from my suburban home in California, but I share it with you because it belongs in the conversation. There is a small experiment going on...

    A civil rights activist is suing Fox News and network host Jeanine Pirro, alleging that she made "false and defamatory statements" about him while discussing the Black Lives Matter movement. DeRay Mckesson, one of the movement's leaders, said that Pirro defamed him when she claimed during a "Fox & Friends" segment that he directed protesters to commit violence against police officers, according to The Baltimore Sun. The lawsuit centers around remarks Pirro made on Sept. 29 while discussing the dismissal of a lawsuit filed by a police officer who was injured during protests in Baton Rouge, La. "Pirro's statements are untrue and further a...

    The NFL is no longer primarily about football. It is committed to advancing cultural Marxism first and foremost. The league has agreed to dump $89 million into leftist advocacy. It just extended the contract of Roger Goodell for up to $40 million per year, even though he has crippled the fan base with his support for Black Lives Matter protests during the national anthem. Then there is this: As its players continue to protest the National Anthem, the National Football League (NFL) announced it will host an “Advocacy in Sport Workshop” at Morehouse College in Atlanta, Georgia, to educate athletes...

    There were plenty stories in 2017 to turn our stomachs. But, no other tale made us sicker than the time four teenaged kidnappers tortured a white special needs man. Because “Trump” and “honkies.” A hate crime if I ever saw one. If the story wasn’t already bad enough for you, they also live-streamed the torture session on Facebook. Well, the first kidnapper received her sentence, and it’s about as fitting as Michael Moore in a movie theater seat.

    Everyday Feminism ^ | December 8, 2017 | Lara Witt
    As a queer femme of color, I keep close relationships with people who go beyond allyship; they’re true accomplices in the fight against white supremacy, queerphobia, and misogyny. If you’re not going to support marginalized folks, then we can’t be friends, let alone date. The personal is political. Beyond the lovely cushioning, happiness and support that we receive from our platonic relationships (which are, in all honesty, soul-feeding and essential), feminists also date! But there are questions we have to ask before we get close to someone.

    Chicago woman who live-streamed video of the racially charged beating of a teen with mental disabilities pleaded guilty Friday to a hate crime and was sentenced to four years of probation. Brittany Covington, 19, has been in custody since her arrest in January. Cook County Circuit Judge William Hooks banned Covington from social media over the four years, prohibited her from contact with two of her co-defendants and ordered her to do 200 hours of community service. The 19-year-old also pleaded guilty to aggravated battery and intimidation charges. As part of a plea deal, prosecutors dropped additional charges, including kidnapping....

    It doesn’t snow much in Las Vegas, but snowflakes have shown up at UNLV. On Tuesday night, student groups, including Black Lives Matter UNLV, held a poetry competition outside the union. Sometime after the event concluded, seven North Las Vegas motorcycle officers rode through a nearby area. Black Lives Matter UNLV assumed the cops were trying to threaten them and posted a breathless comment on Facebook. “The police officers swarmed like sharks in the parking lot behind the SU (student union) Courtyard and then entered the SU Courtyard where motor vehicles are usually not allowed,” reads the post. “We stared...

    High school cheerleaders are also kneeling during the national anthem, according to a testimony from two high schoolers in Union City, Calif. Two high school students, Sasha Armbrester and Teana Boston, told NPR’s Youth Radio Friday that they are protesting police brutality at football games.Armbrester, a cheerleader for James Logan High School’s football team, said that the two girls originally learned about race relations from taking the same ethnic studies class at school, which made them reconsider supporting the National Anthem. “When Colin Kaepernick started taking a knee, a lot of people thought he was being unpatriotic. But for me...

    When it comes to TV ratings, the National Football League needs a Hail Mary. Average game viewership has fallen to 15 million this season, down from 16.5 million last year, and the lowest since 2008, according to data compiled by RBC Capital Markets. The firm also finds that the league's audience is down on a year-over-year basis, and notes that it hasn't seen meaningful growth since 2013, when the measure climbed 5%. RBC says this has had an adverse effect on how advertisers view the prospect of buying time slots during NFL games. "The sustained decline is what worries investors...

    Kansas City cornerback Marcus Peters had a meltdown late in a one-possession game after a penalty was called against the Chiefs on a failed New York Jets two-point conversion. Josh McCown ran extremely far back as he was pursued by the Kansas City defensive line while going for two, eventually just chucking the ball away. But officials threw a flag for defensive holding, which was the third key penalty of the drive against the Chiefs. Marcus Peters did not like the call. To demonstrate his displeasure, he dramatically tossed the flag into the stands. On the retry, the Jets converted...

    Movie star and potential 2020 presidential candidate Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, has taken exception with how President Trump has dealt with politically outspoken athletes. According to “The Rock,” the players just want “to be heard.” advertisement Johnson told InStyle Magazine, “When the players are kneeling as a last resort, as a desire to be heard, clearly they’re not being heard. It’s an opportunity for our leaders, our president and his staff, to hear them, truly hear them, and not be angry.” Though, Johnson doesn’t merely confine his criticisms to how Trump has handled anthem-protesting NFL players. The actor and former...
