    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.
  • Caldara: The woke mob’s ‘Reign of Terror’ moment

    During the French Revolution’s “Reign of Terror,” those accused of not being true enough to the cause were publicly beheaded. To unify the Communist Party in Russia, the Stalinist purges did much the same. Mao used the equivalent tactic with his Cultural Revolution. It’s a tried and true technique. People who didn’t want to get swept up in these eradications learned quickly to not just embrace the political philosophies championed by the new power structure, but to chant the new mantras louder than the person next to them. This way they can show they’ve always been on the winner’s team,...
  • Major League Baseball Saturates Social Media with Black Lives Matter Posts

    Breitbart ^ | July 09 2020 | WARNER TODD HUSTON
    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.

    A Black Lives Matter mural painted on a street in a village outside of Chicago has been altered to say “All Lives Matter.” The incident in Oak Park is now being investigated by police as an act of vandalism, officials say. “The movement lives within us,” Kasani Cannon, one of the artists who painted the mural, told Fox32 Chicago. “You can paint over it, you can drive over it, but once this mural dries, our movement still goes on.”

    Coca-Cola would like you to know that it cares about oppression and believes America is evil. In a rambling statement by CEO James Quincey, titled, "Where We Stand on Social Justice", the head of the obesity conglomerate declared that he is, "outraged, sad, frustrated, angry." It’s hard that out there for a guy in a racist country who is only making an $18 million salary. The Coke CEO then pledged to give money to the social justice usual suspects and the company joined a boycott of Facebook to pressure it into censoring Trump and conservatives. "Companies like ours must speak...

    Exclusive: Jack Cashill explains BHO's role in pushing 2 lies & the subsequent rise in crime On the morning of March 23, 2012, after introducing the new head of the World Bank in the White House Rose Garden, Barack Obama took just one question, likely pre-arranged. It was on the recent shooting death of Trayvon Martin. Said Obama for the ages, "My main message is to the parents of Trayvon: If I had a son, he would look like Trayvon." In projecting Trayvon as a "son," Obama strongly suggested that all black children were equally vulnerable to the predations of...

    On the evening of May 31, Eldon Hawkins unwittingly drove his burgundy 2010 Buick LaCrosse sedan into the heart of a protest at Broad and High streets and unleashed a furious response. Hawkins, 58, who has cerebral palsy, said he was left shaken by the experience, and damage to his car topped $8,000. He spoke about what happened during Monday’s Columbus City Council meeting. Columbus police on Wednesday afternoon released a compilation of videos of the incident, which occurred around 7 p.m. Police are asking for help in identifying who might have been involved.
  • Video From Don Lemon When He Wasn't "Woke": Black People Leave Trash Everywhere, But White People Never Litter - Agrees With O'Reilly's Criticism Of Black Community

    Right Journalism ^ | 07.09.2020 | Natalie Dagenhardt
    CNN host Don Lemon is well known for his far-left points of view and deep embrace of the Black Lives Matter movement, which is pushing hard to defund police around the country. Lemon earlier this week practically laughed off skyrocketing crime rates in big cities as a police back off from doing their jobs and even look to quit altogether due to mounting forces against them. But that’s not what he thought just a few short years ago. Case in point is a 2013 CNN video showing Lemon shining the spotlight on problems in the black community — and actually...

    See video at link. This guy breaks it down by the facts. (No surprises for most of us who know that BLM is being used by crazy Leftists to gain political power.) But it is nice to know that non-conservatives are starting to see the light and spread the word too. Some key takeaways from the video: 1. Donations to BLM are being funneled to ActBlue, a fundraising arm of the Democrat Party. 2. This happens every election year. The Dems get people all riled up so that they will donate more. 3. The Dems are using George Floyd's death...

    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...

    During a passionate two-hour ESPN college football conference call last month to discuss race following the death of George Floyd, there were riveting and emotional testimonials from on- and off-air people as hundreds listened. About a half-hour in, as ESPN’s Maria Taylor discussed the issue and her experience, a play-by-play man for the network, Dave LaMont, could be heard in the background, apparently thinking his phone was on mute. LaMont described the nature of the call on race as “venting,” which stunned those listening and immediately caused a rebuke from Taylor, who warned there could be ramifications if he did...

    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...

    The first half of the 20th Century was one of the most devastating in human history. The people who lived through that calamitous period are called the Greatest Generation for good reason. They came of age during the Great Depression and went on to save the world from the Nazi and Japanese tyrannies. They fought hard to save the world and later built the United States into the dominant economic and military superpower on the planet. The thing about the Greatest Generation was that their lives were tough… with a great depression sandwiched between two world wars, life was simply...
  • Don Lemon’s devastating admission - His recent interview with Hollywood star Terry Crews was a complete and utter catastrophe for the Black Lives Matter narrative.

    American Thinker ^ | 07/09/2020 | Howard Bland
    Major Democrat media figurehead and CNN golden goose Don Lemon’s  recent interview with Hollywood star Terry Crews was a complete and utter catastrophe for the Black Lives Matter narrative. Lemon essentially – no, not essentially, literally admitted on live television that Black Lives Matter has absolutely nothing to do with 97% of black victims of violent crime. I’ll explain why after briefly reviewing Don Lemon’s shambolic performance: First, Lemon attempted to con his guest – an ordinary if famous black man simply wondering why yet another horrendous black body-count over an American holiday weekend didn’t arouse the slightest acknowledgement...

    We’ve seen this all before – the attempt to erase history through the destruction of statues and monuments to any historical event but today’s anarchy and any vestige of authority, real, institutional, or symbolic other than the authority imposed by the nihilists themselves. As columnist Charles Krauthammer once pointed out, one the first acts of the Taliban in Afghanistan was to blow up centuries-old statues of Buddha carved in a mountain cliff. They did it not because they were built by the United States or Israel or represented Western colonialism. The giant Buddhas of Bamiyan were destroyed by the Taliban...

    Protesters can often be heard chanting, “Stay together, stay tight! We do this every night” in the streets of downtown Portland. The second half of the slogan is especially fitting as the riots continued for the 41st consecutive night Wednesday in downtown Portland. Terry Schrunk Plaza was the scene of a loose gathering of about 100 people Terry Schrunk Plaza on Wednesday evening. A group of federal police officers ran through the area at about 9:30 p.m. and some protesters claimed the officers used pepper spray. Others said the officers were responding to someone using a laser. The scene quickly...

    According to a press release issued by U.S. Rep. Mo Brooks’ (R-Huntsville) office on Wednesday, U.S. Army officials at North Alabama’s Redstone Arsenal may have used federal government resources to distribute to base civilian and uniformed personnel “racist and partisan political propaganda.” A statement from Brooks called the effort to be in direct violation of the Hatch Act and any number of military regulations.
