    Mainstream media ignores Diablo Valley College left wing “ethics” professor Eric Clanton, who smashed a metal bike lock against an innocent person’s head Earlier this month at Berkeley, California, a partially masked thug smashed a metal bike lock against an innocent person’s head.Some awesomely talented sleuth observers at 4chan have identified the thug based on his partially visible face, his clothing, and several other things.And it turns out that the thug is left wing Diablo Valley College “ethics” professor Eric Clanton.Clanton supports shoplifting, opposes private ownership of property, and has defended convicted cop killer Mumia Abu-Jamal.Although it’s been several days since...

    The Springfield News-Sun ^ | April 24, 2017 | Matt Sanctis
    A Japanese auto parts supplier is one step closer to creating 85 new jobs and taking over a Springfield industrial park after receiving tax credits valued at about $300,000 on Monday. Members of the Ohio Tax Credit Authority voted unanimously Monday to approve a 1.217-percent, seven-year tax credit for the Topre America Corp., which has pledged to take over Springfield’s Champion City Business Park. Topre plans to invest $55 million and create at least 85 jobs, with the expectation more workers could be added over the next several years. The 85 jobs the company has pledged to bring to Springfield...

    ORLANDO, Fla. (WOFL FOX 35) - Disney executives emphasized the economic impact of the brand new attraction at Animal Kingdom called Pandora: World of Avatar. Not only has it created hundreds of new jobs but it would be more money that those new workers will put back into the local economy. “Walt Disney World has 73,000 cast members today, serves as the largest single employer in the United States,” said Senior Vice President of Walt Disney World Parks Jim MacPhee. “All of those cast members live, work, and play here in Central Florida. And so this ability to add incrementally...

    Emmanuel Macron is “the kindest, bravest, warmest, most wonderful human being France has ever known.” Emmanuel Macron is a globalist stooge. Emmanuel Macron is a paid lackey of Brussels. Emmanuel Macron is the establishment’s water boy. Emmanuel Macron is France’s Manchurian Candidate. Yesterday, the French people chose globalist backed, former investment banker, Emmanuel Macron from the party, En Marche and Marine Le Pen, the populist female leader of the National Front to advance to the final election on May 7th. Macron garnered 24.01% of the vote and Le Pen, 21.30%. The French voters jettisoned long time favorites; conservative Francois Fillon...

    Wesleyan also has a terrible rating for free speech. Go figure. The College Fix reports: University rated one of the worst for free speech to open $220,000-a-year social justice center Wesleyan University — rated one of the worst in the nation for free speech by a nonprofit watchdog group — is slated to roll out a new center dedicated to advancing social justice, an effort estimated to cost more than $200,000 annually to promote various “gender, queer, students of color” causes. Claiming the center was prompted by “racist, misogynistic and transphobic issues and events” at the private Connecticut campus, which...

    MIAMI (WSVN) - Hundreds celebrated phase one of a groundbreaking change, Sunday night, in South Florida. The Miami Worldcenter was premiered, which is America’s second-largest luxury urban real estate development. According to Paramount Miami Worldcenter, phase one is a 60-story, $500 million skyscraper, which includes resort-style pools, a fitness center and spa, astronomy observatory, tennis courts, soccer field and a bar. Paramount CEO Daniel Kodsi said the whole project will be a “city within America’s city of the future.” “Paramount Miami Worldcenter is gonna change the skyline, but Miami Worldcenter is gonna change the city landscape,” Kodsi added. “Now, we’re...

    I grudgingly admire this dude’s willingness to go all-in on his position after having been scolded last week by half the lawyers on the Internet. If you’re out to censor your political opponents on “hate speech” grounds, you can’t let some clucking by First Amendment experts frighten you. He mentions three cases that supposedly make Ann Coulter’s right to speak at Berkeley a “close call” which ultimately can be infringed on “safety” grounds or whatever. One is the Chaplinsky decision from 1942, in which the Supreme Court held that “fighting words” can be banned because they’re likely to lead to...

    When President Barack Obama announced the “one-time gesture” of releasing Iranian-born prisoners who “were not charged with terrorism or any violent offenses” last year, his administration presented the move as a modest trade-off for the greater good of the Iran nuclear agreement and Tehran’s pledge to free five Americans. “Iran had a significantly higher number of individuals, of course, at the beginning of this negotiation that they would have liked to have seen released,” one senior Obama administration official told reporters in a background briefing arranged by the White House, adding that “we were able to winnow that down to...

    IWB ^ | Mark Angelides
    No matter what Donald Trump achieves as President, and no matter what the outcomes of the Brexit negotiations, we’re still losing the information war. And unless this is won, all advancements can be simply undone or worked around by the next administration. Each victory that Trump wins, whether it’s the deportation of criminal migrants, the revamping (or removal) of Obamacare, it can all be taken away when the next agenda-driven candidate comes to power. It would be nice to think that the sclerotic rot of the CNC will never rise again, but it will. And when it does, the first...

    For the more than 3 million Americans infected with potentially deadly hepatitis C, a relatively new cocktail of drugs is considered a miracle cure. The problem: Gilead Sciences’ list price is $84,000 for a 12-week treatment. From Martin Shkreli’s Turing Pharmaceuticals jacking up the AIDS drug Daraprim from $13.50 per pill to $750 in a single day to Mylan’s allergy-fighting EpiPens rising from $100 to $600 in just a few years, Americans are getting sick of astonishing drug prices. It’s why Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders both used their presidential campaigns to roast Big Pharma. In a primary-season rally in...

    What we are reporting here isn't fake news. But it doesn't feel exactly like real news, either. It's in that foggy realm of Trump news in which everything is slightly ambiguous and wobbly and internally inconsistent and almost certainly improvisational and not actually grounded in what you could call “government policy.” What happened was: Trump called the International Space Station and talked to astronauts and, in passing, mentioned that he's going to send Americans to Mars, and soon, like really lickety-split. Trump was marking the historic achievement of astronaut Peggy Whitson, the commander of the International Space Station, who set...

    Jesse Arreguin, mayor of Berkeley, California, has been revealed to be involved with a violent, far-left group known as “BAMN,” meaning “By Any Means Necessary.” Indeed, Arreguin’s Facebook page shows him belonging to BAMN, according to The Gateway Pundit. The group formally describes itself on Facebook as “The Coalition to Defend Affirmative Action, Integration & Immigrant Rights, and Fight for Equality By Any Means Necessary (BAMN).” BAMN is not just any “liberal” or “leftist” group. It is a group whose members have engaged in violence, and is affiliated with the violent antifascist, or antifa, movement. BAMN has been involved in...

    Trans-activist Riley J. Dennis says having ‘genital preferences’ in dating is transphobic.Yes, you read that correctly. If you’re a man who wants your woman to have a vagina you’re a bigot.Dennis released a video at Everydayfeminist.com about his theory on “cissexism”, which he says is interchangeable with “transphobia” and means “prejudice or discrimination against trans people.”My head is spinning. So, you’re born gay, you’re born trans, but no one is born straight. Straight people are just bigots.Got it….I think. To quote Dennis: [People] might argue that being attracted to women without vaginas in no way negatively affects trans people,...

    It appears that Russia is leading the way towards a much-needed rejection of "religious freedom" in the West: Source from NRO: http://www.nationalreview.com/corner/446966/russia-jehovahs-witnesses-ban-continues-putin-religious-persecution Russia’s crackdown on religious activity took a major step forward this week as the Justice Ministry banned Jehovah’s Witnesses. Russia has steadily curtailed rights to evangelize in recent years, but this move signals their commitment to aggressively policing private religious activity. The Russian supreme court ruled that Jehovah’s Witnesses amount to an “extremist group,” and therefore the government is shutting down their headquarters and local chapters, seizing their property, and banning them from meeting. Vladimir Putin’s campaign...

    Jesus de Leon remembers clearly when his spirit finally shattered. He was 13 years old. It wasn’t an obvious wound like a broken leg, but rather a deep cut to his soul after years of indoctrination and violence that slowly warped his thinking and stole his innocence. De Leon was born in Cuba in 1966, almost a decade after Fidel Castro seized power and purged dissenters. “I was at the heart of the revolution,” de Leon said at his home in Brooklyn on March 16. “I was raised with being indoctrinated within the communist system.” From the first days of...

    Liberalism is not really freedom; it thrives on divisiveness, separation, and inequality Cultural Marxist academics, their sycophant students, and the main stream media are at war with America—a war of violent Marxist ideology and a war of cleverly chosen words and euphemisms that appear time and time again in many college courses, high school classes, in propaganda literature, newspapers, conferences, and in the manufactured news. Cultural Marxists are regular guests on all the alphabet soup networks masquerading as real news, spewing their hatred, their disdain and disrespect for our President, and their calls to renewed violence in the streets through...

    A recent string of robberies on BART trains took a frightening turn when dozens of juveniles swarmed an Oakland station over the weekend and commandeered a train car, forcing passengers to hand over bags and cell phones and leaving at least two with head injuries, witnesses told the transit agency. The incident — the first of its kind in recent memory — occurred around 9:30 p.m. Saturday at Coliseum Station. According to a police summary, witnesses said 50 to 60 juveniles flooded the station, jumped the fare gates and rushed to the second-story train platform. Some of the robbers apparently...
