    <p>OAKLAND, Calif. — Last weekend, when a 27-year-old bike messenger showed up at the “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Va., he came ready for battle. He joined a human chain that stretched in front of Emancipation Park and linked his arms with others, blocking waves of white supremacists — some of them in full Nazi regalia — from entering.</p>

    Whereas George Soros has willfully and on an ongoing basis attempted to destabilize and otherwise commit acts of sedition against the United States and its citizens, has created and funded dozens (and probably hundreds) of discrete organizations whose sole purpose is to apply Alinsky model terrorist tactics to facilitate the collapse of the systems and Constitutional government of the United State, and has developed unhealthy and undue influence over the entire Democrat Party and a large portion of the US Federal government, the DOJ should immediately declare George Soros and all of his organizations and staff members to be domestic...

    Mr. Mitt Romney, CNN reported Mitt Romney called on President Donald Trump Friday (August 18) to apologize for his comments about Charlottesville, Virginia. I see on the current on-line commentary about your criticism of President Trump and his initial and follow-up comments about the Charlottesville, Virginia fiasco and it is beyond reprehensible for you to make your comments; distorting the truth about the situation AND President Trump’s statements about it. You, Sir, are a blatant disaster and you make me sick, in part, because I voted for you twice.

    CNN published an article today based on interviews with members of Antifa. The headline notes, “Activists seek peace through violence.” That seems to suggest there’s a real problem with what Antifa is doing but the rest of the article comes across as sympathetic to the group, even to their violence: Antifa activists often don’t hesitate to destroy property, which many see as the incarnation of unfair wealth distribution.“Violence against windows — there’s no such thing as violence against windows,” a masked Antifa member in Union Square told CNN. “Windows don’t have — they’re not persons. And even when they...

    Why can’t tech firms shut down terrorists as fast as they do Nazis?After the violence in Charlottesville, Va., some tech firms and social-media sites were quick to ban white supremacists — far quicker than they were when it came to scrubbing radical Islamic terrorists. GoDaddy, Google and even Russian Internet officials booted the Daily Stormer, a neo-Nazi and white-supremacist Web site, after it published a despicable derogatory story about the woman killed by a white supremacist in Charlottesville. Facebook took hits for failing to remove the event page for the “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville. Even OkCupid, a dating...

  • Mugshot reveals what happens when you try to car jack three football players

    This New Mexico man's booking photo shows just how dangerous a life of crime can be. Angelo Martinez, 21, was arrested after police say he tried to carjack three football players in Albuquerque with a fake gun. The men were leaving football practice when they say Martinez was "acting sketchy" near their vehicle, according to KOAT 7. Martinez asked the men for a ride and they agreed, but when they arrived at the location Martinez directed them to, he pulled a gun and demanded they get out of the car. The men complied, but when Martinez fumbled with the gun,...
  • If Congress doesn’t fund Obamacare subsidies next month it could get pretty complicated

    State health insurance regulators have been hoping for the best when it comes to 2018 exchange enrollment, but are now bracing for the worst-case scenario — that the fate of key health insurance subsidies will remain in limbo past key deadlines next month. "We have a way to protect consumers, but it is complicated and will cause unnecessary confusion and anxiety," said Diana Dooley, chair of Covered California, the state's Obamacare exchange, in a statement Friday. California officials say they will wait until the end of September to decide whether to let insurers impose a 12.8 percent surcharge on 2018...

    The fact is that these supposed feminists not only turn a blind eye to those atrocities, but their presence at these events actively endorses and legitimizes the rule of these dictators. When the subject turns to the specific cases of millions of oppressed women around the world -- such as Asia Bibi, a Christian mother on death row in Pakistan for seven years for taking a drink of water; or the 19-year-old who, this year, was raped by her cousin at gunpoint and then sentenced to death by stoning for "adultery"; [snip]When Mogherini smiles in her hijab in Iran, she...

    In a pair of tweets Wednesday, Brzezinski said the president’s “both sides” reaction to the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, “created a permissive climate for violence.” She suggested that “blood and carnage” will be on the president’s hands and the president’s cabinet and staff will have that same blood on their hands unless they “speak out, step down or act decisively.”
