    Communist handout encourages St. Louis students to help shut campus, city down in wake of grand jury verdict ST. LOUIS, Mo. – Students at Saint Louis University were handed a communist leaflet as they walked between classes Wednesday afternoon that declared “if the murdering pig walks, AMERIKKKA must be brought to a halt.” The leaflet was distributed by two individuals associated with the Revolutionary Communist Party on Grand Boulevard, a busy street that intersects with the university’s quad and splits the two ends of the urban campus. “If the decision is announced at night, the next day should be a...
  • Obama Met With Ferguson Activists – Said He’s Concerned They “Stay on Course”

    President Obama met with Ferguson protest leaders on November 5th, the day after the midterm elections. The meeting was not on his daily schedule. He was concerned that the protesters “stay on course.” What does that mean? And why is the president meeting with the violent Mike Brown protesters before a verdict is reached in the court case? The Ferguson protesters have looted over 100 businesses in the St. Louis area. The New York Times hid this in the 21st paragraph of their report: But leaders here say that is the nature of a movement that has taken place, in...

    ACORN's old Missouri chapter is playing at least a supporting role in the violent unrest and crime wave that has plagued Ferguson and St. Louis, Missouri since the Aug. 9 death of Michael Brown. With all the pathologies on parade right now in and around Ferguson, really, how could the loyalists of ACORN, which once claimed a membership of 400,000, have stayed away from the opportunity to lynch a white police officer for doing his job? The recruiting and fundraising opportunities for the cop-hating progressive movement are virtually unlimited.

UCSD filed suit after the student collective refused to vacate the 1940s- era building on campus. University officials said the building needs $700,000 in repairs to stay open. Superior Court Judge Katherine Bacal ruled in favor of UCSD after a bench trial.

    Look whose photo graces the campus of UCLA, meant to be an inspiration to incoming students. The woman in the photo is standing above the slogan: “We Question.” On the right-hand side, in small letters, students are informed that they are “the optimists.” This banner adds to the shadow that today is cast over so many of our major universities. For those who can’t identify her, the photo depicts Angela Davis, the notorious former Communist Party USA leader who, beginning in the ’60s, molded together black nationalism with Marxism-Leninism. She created a heady brew for recruiting new cadre into the...

    They took to the streets in downtown St. Louis on Saturday, coming by the thousands to march in protest. And what was the festering grievance that cohered these marchers, the noble cause that brought them from every corner of the country to the Gateway City? Was it the new war in Iraq? Global warming, perhaps? Or was it a higher minimum wage they were seeking? No, it was none of these things. As the St. Louis Post-Dispatch tells it [1], they came “to protest the death of Michael Brown and call for an end to police violence nationwide.”

    Forget the possibility of the enemy at the gates. The enemy has breached the gates. The enemy is within. The enemy is in Washington, D.C., and in Ferguson, Missouri. The ideology that has grabbed a hold of Ferguson is the same one that destroyed Detroit. Black Nationalism. Imagine mixing a little Marxism, a generous portion of Islamism, and throwing in bits and pieces of class envy, class warfare, and a compromised version of Christianity that Jesus Christ would fail to recognize, stir it all together with a generous portion of anger and hate thrown in, and you’ve got Black Nationalism.

Vietnam-era peace activists, New York City seminarians and hundreds of fast-food workers bused in from Chicago, Nashville and other cities marched alongside local residents, spurred by a national campaign dubbed Ferguson October.

    Today marks 47 years since the death of Marxist revolutionary Che Guevara—an international terrorist responsible for the murder of thousands of innocent people. Despite Che’s murderous history, the Left continues to glorify and idolize him. Images of Che’s face can be seen on t-shirts, coffee mugs, keychains, and sweatshirts—ironic because he wasn’t a proponent of free-markets. Students walk around their campuses wearing shirts with Che’s image on it, yet they have no idea of the atrocities he committed. Unfortunately, most students either ignore this part of his story or are never truly informed about his actions. Every year Young America’s...

The meeting comes as Fernandez's leftist government struggles to kick-start growth and contain runaway consumer prices after failing to complete a June interest payment to Soros and other holders of bonds restructured after a previous default. Soros' portfolio also includes a 3.5 percent stake in Argentina's state-controlled energy firm YPF. Buenos Aires has frequently cited the Hungarian-born magnate's investments in the country as...

Shoppers have for more than a year struggled to find basic goods including cooking oil, powdered milk and corn flour as well as detergent, shampoo and diapers. Apart from a short supply of dollars for imports, the shortages have been blamed on heavy subsidies that allow shoppers to stock up on staples and resell them in neighboring Colombia or on the...

    Labor unions fear that if Republicans win a majority in the lower house of New Mexico’s legislature, they will push for a right-to-work state. Democrats have only a three-seat majority in the New Mexico House of Representatives and if they lose those seats, the Republicans are more than likely going to make right-to-work a primary issue, Albuquerque Business First reports. Beverlee McClure of the New Mexico Association of Commerce and Industry has said that New Mexico’s lack of right-to-work policies hurt the state’s ability to recruit businesses.

It started when Amnesty plunged into the Ferguson debate on Monday, announcing that it sent a 13-person “human rights delegation,” to the Missouri town, “which included observers who monitored police and protester activity and sought meetings with officials. Other members of the delegation trained local activists in methods of non-violent protest.”

    The American Left used to be patriotic. In its heyday, Eugene V. Debs never attacked America, and the socialist vision he advocated was in his eyes a way to realize the promise of America. As for the American Communist Party, in reality the tool of Stalin’s USSR, it pretended in the 1940s to be pro-American, and its chairman, Earl Browder, coined the slogan “Communism is 20th century Americanism.” This pretense came to an end during the Cold War, when the Left supported the Soviet bloc and all of its policies, and argued that America was in the process of becoming...

    In recent years, Liberal Democrats have adopted the name Progressives. Is the name appropriate? Merriam-Webster’s dictionary defines progressive as moving forward or onward, happening or developing gradually over a period of time, or characterized by progression. If Liberals are indeed progressives, how is it that they deploy pre-Civil Rights era rhetoric to combat any Republican opposition to Democrat initiatives? The same goes for Republican initiatives that Democrats oppose. Liberals, and their media allies instantly compare voter ID laws to poll taxes and literacy test that were outlawed in the 1965 Voters Rights Act. However, neither will acknowledge that it is regressive...

Peggy Noonan's July 4 op-ed in the Wall Street Journal laid out the case for the president's apparent ennui:

    I ask myself, where is my country? Can I have it back? Why must we destroy everything in order to satisfy the wishes of the ruling elite, the oligarchs in power, who are busy re-writing all our laws, inviting in corruption, lawlessness, and deceit.

    In 2008, we were warned…. Barack Obama, late of a Black Liberation church, protege of Communist Frank Marshall Davis, buyer of real estate from a convicted felon, and community organizer from a political machine as corrupt and ruthless as any in the country, wasn’t going to be Madison’s alter ego. Beyond the gate of political correctness and white guilt, we expected a rough, if not fatal, four years—but no one – and I mean, NO ONE – called this. That it would be this bad, this unmoored, and that, despite a train of scandals, four would become EIGHT abject years,...

    Sometimes, and more often than not, the real news gets buried in the heaps of masquerading propaganda captured in mainstream media front page headlines. Unheralded anywhere but on the front page of the Chicago Tribune, the Communist Party USA returned last Friday to Chicago, the city of its cesspool birth. More than 300 followers came to celebrate the party’s 95th anniversary at the University of Illinois in Chicago for a convention which featured three days of speeches, panel discussions and workshops. One session was devoted to catching up with the online era.

    Secretary of State John Kerry says it's "a lot of baloney" to suggest the five Taliban prisoners released in exchange for Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl will return to battle and kill Americans. Still, he tells CNN, if they try they'll likely be killed themselves.
