    The direction that America is heading in is dangerous. Eventually, one way or the other, there will be some sort of cultural “reset”, that will affect American society. As such, I cannot predict the future. However, it does seem like one side or the other will eventually obtain power. And, make no mistake on this, when this happens, there will be conflict. There absolutely will be strife. As we all know that in the past, there has always been conflicts during societal resets. I don’t know which side will wrest control of American society. The Socialist Progressives have already armed...

    The long-awaited murder trial of Chicago police Officer Jason Van Dyke continued Tuesday with key testimony from Van Dyke’s partner and other eyewitnesses in a racially fraught case that has roiled the city for nearly three years. Here are five takeaways from the second day of the trial: 4. " In a setback for the prosecution, Judge Vincent Gaughan tossed out the entire testimony of one prosecution witness. FBI forensic examiner Mark Messick made a slowed-down version of the dashcam video with arrows pointing to where he believed the bullets hit. But later he said on the stand he was...

    Everything wrong with the social justice movement is currently on display in Ferguson. Four years after Michael Brown’s death, a group of protesters are trying to shut down the store Brown visited just before he was killed. They blockaded the store until the police finally made them stop and continue to protest the store and verbally harass anyone who tries to shop there. My wife and I were present at a City Council meeting observing the protesters. Some threatened to burn the store down and to harm the owners, an Indian-American family. Others added a dose of racism, calling the...
  • Why I Changed the Way I Write about Police Shootings

    National Review ^ | 12th September 2018 | David French
    Yesterday I wrote a piece that’s gone viral — an extended denunciation of a terrible police shooting in Texas. A white officer went to black man’s apartment, apparently thinking it was her own. When she saw the man in the darkness, she claimed she thought he was a burglar. She shot him and killed him. It’s a horrifying story, and it’s not the only terrible police shooting to shock the American conscience. Whenever I write about police shootings, I get a similar critique. New readers will Google me and find that I’ve been strongly critical of Black Lives Matter. Yet...

    Ten National Football League (NFL) players from six teams protested, in one way or another, during the playing of the National Anthem in the first week of NFL regular season games. While ESPN reports that only two players knelt during the Anthem, three others raised a fist in protest, one sat on the bench and four more boycotted the Anthem in protest by hiding out in their stadium’s tunnels as it played. Philadelphia Eagles (1): Defensive End Michael Bennett sat on the bench during the playing of the National Anthem prior to Thursday Night’s NFL season-opener against the Atlanta Falcons....

    VENICE, Italy—Two years ago, the Venice Film Festival hosted the world premiere of Hacksaw Ridge, a World War II drama directed by Mel Gibson. The film marked Gibson’s first turn behind the camera in a decade, since he’d drunkenly slurred “the Jews are responsible for all the wars in the world,” pleaded guilty to battering his then-partner Oksana Grigorieva, and was caught on audio saying she was “asking” to be “raped by a pack of n****rs.” Despite never demonstrating much in the way of genuine contrition, he was treated to a prolonged standing ovation on the Lido—the opening salvo of...

    A jewelry store in Massachusetts is facing backlash after putting up a billboard depicting a man proposing on a football field alongside the words, “If you’re going to take a knee this season, please have a ring in your hand!” The billboard, put up by Garieri Jewelers on a New England highway, was reportedly received positively after being erected on Sept. 1, according to The Washington Post. Scott Garieri, the owner of the jewelry store, told The Post he intended for the advertisement to be a witty “play on words,” in reference to NFL players who choose to kneel in...

  • Old-School Eulogy at Aretha Franklin Funeral Ignites Wrath

    09/01/2018 3:45:02 AM PDT · by Cecily · 45 replies
    A fiery, old-school eulogist at the funeral of Aretha Franklin fell flat for many in the crowd and prompted a social media uproar when he declared "black America has lost its soul," black women are incapable of raising sons alone and the Black Lives Matter movement is unfounded in the face of black-on-black crime. And that was just 26 minutes into the nearly 50 minutes of words provided by the Rev. Jasper Williams Jr. of Salem Baptist Church in Atlanta as Franklin's marathon funeral wound down Friday. Williams, who also eulogized Franklin's father, minister and civil rights activist C.L. Franklin,...

    California police shot and killed former “ER” actress Vanessa Marquez when they visited for a welfare check and she pulled a “BB-type” gun on them, according to a new report.

  • Protesters continue to target Ferguson convenience store in the name of Michael Brown

    Protesters have been gathering outside of Ferguson Market and Liquor since Aug. 9 — the fourth anniversary of the police shooting death of Michael Brown Jr. — calling on the convenience store to take more ownership of its role in the saga and submit to a list of requests. Brown had just left the store before the fatal skirmish with then-Officer Darren Wilson in the street near Canfield Green apartments in 2014. After the shooting, Ferguson police released a surveillance clip from the store indicating that Brown had stolen cigarillos and shoved a store clerk. Protesters believe that the surveillance...

    BOISE, Idaho — The U.S. government said an Idaho family is to blame for any injuries it alleges a boy received after he was doused with cyanide by a predator-killing trap that a federal worker mistakenly placed near their home. Any injuries were caused by the negligence of the parents and child, the U.S. Department of Justice said in documents filed Monday in U.S. District Court, and asked for the family's lawsuit to be dismissed. Mark and Theresa Mansfield of Pocatello sued in June seeking more than $75,000 in damages and more than $75,000 for pain and suffering. They say...

    CROWN HEIGHTS, BROOKLYN — New Yorkers who call 911 on law-abiding people of color are committing hate crimes and should be prosecuted, according to a state senator who was recently reported to police for campaigning in his own district. State Senator Jesse Hamilton, who represents Brownsville, Crown Heights and Flatbush, proposed new legislation a week after a self-described Trump fan called police to report him for speaking to constituents in public. It would criminalize 911 calls against people of color without evidence of malice. "That's gonna be a hate crime," Hamilton said. "This pattern of calling the police on black...

    For years, Omarosa Manigault Newman stood at Donald Trump's side, making her deeply unpopular with African-Americans who see her as a sellout for aligning herself with a president who has hurled one insult after another at black people. Her falling out with Trump and her decision to call him a racist as she sells her new book — and in turn, his calling her a "dog" — have not been enough for many African-Americans to invite her back to the family picnic. Too little, too late, many said. "Her tell-all mea culpa won't win her any brownie points with most...
