    This is news? The radical left black caucus has discussed impeachment since day one. They “had it” even before Trump was inaugurated.

  • Duke University removes contentious Confederate statue after vandalism

    The new Duke University President Vincent Price only recently came into office, replacing the notorious former President Richard Brodhead who helped blow up Duke’s credibility over the fraudulent charges of rape against the Duke Lacrosse team back in 2006. Brodhead should have been fired after that fiasco — but no, he served on until he was ready to go. Another 11 years of shame heaped on Duke University for retaining this gelded coward at the helm.

    When the charges were made 11 years ago, Brodhead canceled the rest of the Lacrosse season and the coach was forced to resign. Broadhead expressed sympathy with the extremist views of the Gang of 88 in the faculty who proclaimed the guilt of the members of the lacrosse team against false accusations of rape, with no evidence.Brodhead did nothing to tamp down hostilities on the campus. A substantial payout was made in the lawsuit brought by former players, which Broadhead approved and kept secret. The board of directors continued to support him in spite of his clear failure to show impartiality and to try to get at the truth of what happened.

    In the footshopts of the calamities of President Brochead, this new President has already failed in the most important test he has faced to date. Vincent Price should be forced to resign. The problem is that the board at Duke is filled with wealthy leftists who see no problem with this.

    If Duke’s future is ever to be salvaged, the board should resign, too, and new members appointed who fervently believed in academic freedom and free speech.

    Until there is a clean sweep, the stain of corruption will waft over the campus and it will continue to be a desert for academic freedom, free speech, and free inquiry and a blot on the name of fundamental human fairness and justice.

    Charlottesville Police Come Forward: We Were Told to “STAND DOWN” to Ignite Race War (Video)

    By Lauren Richardson276210:45 AM August 17, 2017

    “We [Charlotesville police] were ordered to bring the rival groups together – and then…”

    A Charlottesville police officer has come forward to express his outrage at being told to “stand down” by the city mayor during violent clashes between protesters.

    The officer also claims the protests, which pitched “white supremacists” against members of Antifa, were “set up” to allow for the groups to ignite into exactly what happened.

    “We [Charlotesville police] were ordered to bring the rival groups together. As soon as they were in contact with each other, we were told to stand down. It was outrageous. We weren’t allowed to arrest anyone without asking the mayor first. We weren’t even allowed to stop the driver as he sped away.“

    “The event was being set up as far back as at least May and it went like clockwork.”

    At no point is the car that plowed into the crowd of protesters perused by police – there is not a police car in sight leading into the area, or out.

    Michael Signer, the mayor of Charlottesville, ordered police to stand down during the most chaotic and destructive period of the protests – despite police protests against the orders.

    “We wanted to do our job and keep the peace. But these mother******s in charge really want to destroy America.”

    Fox News reporter Doug McKelway was on the scene in Charlottesville and he backs up the police officer’s claims.

    “I can say, having been in Emancipation Park from early on that morning, that what I saw with my own two eyes confirms what this law enforcement source told us. At least from all visible appearances. We saw people coming out of that park who had head-wounds, who were bleeding from the head, people walking into that park with bats, with sticks — you saw what they were wearing — helmets, body armor, they had come — and this pertains to both sides — they had come to do damage.. you cannot help but notice from that video that police had been more pro-active, they could have potentially calmed this thing down to some degree.”

    Pay close attention to what MCKelway says at 2:41 into the report.

    (See video at link).

    Michael Signer is a Virginia Democratic activist with close ties to Barack Obama and John Podesta.

    Before landing the Charlottesville mayor job he previously worked closely with Podesta at the Center of American Progress and worked with him again on Barack Obama’s State Department Transition Team.

    George Soros, Obama, Podesta, Hillary Clinton and company, are pulling out all the stops to create division through chaos and destruction for one purpose – to destroy President Donald Trump.

    Crowds of paid protesters and useful psychopaths are being sent into pitched battle against one another to sour the mood of the nation and further divide us all.

    Fox News reports, that since the election, scores of activists have taken to the streets, town halls and rallies to blast President Trump. That’s all with the blessing of their boss thanks to social justice benefits and paid time off work policies that are growing in popularity.

    At San Francisco marketing firm Traction, social justice benefits take the form of two so-called “Days of Action” a year.

    “If someone wanted to participate in a pro-life rally,” says Kleinberg, “they are absolutely welcome to do that. This is not about the partners at Traction promoting our agenda, it’s about having a broader view of democracy, and encouraging people to be engaged.”

    But in the famously left-leaning Bay Area, conservative activists don’t buy it.

    “They can take part in a protest, they can volunteer for a cause that is meaningful to them,” says CEO Adam Kleinberg. “Civic engagement is a foundation of our democracy, and companies should encourage it.”

    “They want, basically, a harder left turn than we’re seeing now,” says Howard Epstein, vice chair of communications for the San Francisco Republican Party. “And if you’re going political, you’re going to discourage some people from going to your place of business.

    It is a risk: Consumers opposed to an official endorsement of protest culture might spend their money elsewhere. When news of Traction’s “Day of Action” benefit spread, Kleinberg was the target of a backlash and calls for a boycott.

    “Traction has been called everything from fascists, to socialists, to communists, to libtards, candya—s. I’m not quite sure what being a candya– is, but if being candya—s is what it takes for Traction to inspire change, we’re willing to own that.”

    In a statement to Fox News, outdoor apparel maker Patagonia had a similar stance.

    “We hire activists… who are incredibly passionate about the environment. And, at times, protesting is part of that passion,” said Dean Carter, vice president of human resources. “It all fits in with the company’s greater mission to make the best product, cause no unnecessary harm and use business to inspire and implement solutions to the environmental crisis.”

    Several big corporations are also responding to their worker’s desire to advocate.

    Facebook told its employees they could take paid time off to May Day rallies which, in many cases, were largely about defending immigrant rights. Earlier this year, Comcast gave its workers paid time off to protest Trump’s travel ban.

    Most companies give their workers time off to vote, but “this is different – this is going to a new level,” said Scott Dobroski, community expert with employment firm Glassdoor.

    A recent Glassdoor survey found more than half of employees believe they should have time off to advocate for social change, regardless of their politics.

    Just like President Trump said, ‘bad people from both sides showed up with sticks and clubs prepared to do battle’ and in none of the pictures, is there police there is control the growing rage that they perpetuated by bringing all the protesters together.

    The riot police did not show up until AFTER the car plowed into the crowed killing Heather Heyer and wounding many others.
