We want reparations for chattel slavery, Jim Crow and mass incarceration. We want to end all profit from so-called "criminal justice" punishment - both public and private. We want a guaranteed...

    Texas Senator Ted Cruz has been rising in the polls of late, not only in Iowa, but nationally as well. (And high time, if you ask me.) It’s far too soon to declare him a resident of the top tier aside Trump with so few samples, but the prospect of his being a serious contender for the nomination can’t be discounted. And if he wins the Party’s endorsement, he may be in fine shape to take on Hillary Clinton and then be sworn in as the 45th President of the United States. So then what? Well, at least according to...

    Is Trump-mentum finally slowing down? While this is only one poll and the GOP establishment is still in panic mode over Trump's continued lead, a Reuters/Ipsos survey released Friday shows the GOP frontrunner lost 12 points in less than a week, "his largest single poll-to-poll drop since he took the primary lead in July," The Hill reports. The rolling poll, which was conducted from Nov. 23 to Nov. 27, still has the real estate mogul at the top, finding favor among 31 percent of Republicans. However, support for Trump is down from a peak of 43 percent, which was registered...

    Andrew McCarthy’s column on Syrian refugees and the broader topic of asylum is the read of the day. With his characteristic knowledge and incisiveness, the former prosecutor of the Blind Sheikh for the first World Trade Center bombing gets to the heart of the issue. Few excerpts will convey the importance of this work, which should be read in its whole. The American people are far ahead of their elites in seeing the problem, even though our media, like the French and other Euromeadia, generally ignores the problematic aspects of not just Islamic culture but of the scriptural religion itself....

    The jihad waged by radical Islam rips at France from within. The two mass-murder attacks this year that finally induced President Francois Hollande to concede a state of war are only what we see. Unbound by any First Amendment, the French government exerts pressure on the media to suppress bad news. We do not hear much about the steady thrum of insurrection in the banlieues: the thousands of torched automobiles, the violence against police and other agents of the state, the pressure in Islamic enclaves to ignore the sovereignty of the Republic and conform to the rule of sharia.

    Donald Trump, as many people on the left and even some on the right agree, is undoubtedly and intentionally making controversial remarks on cultural, racial and religious issues. But what's emerged as the more complicated question is whether Trump's supporters agree with all of his remarks. Are at least some of Trump's backers, as many liberals argue, racist or intolerant? In interviews, Trump supporters often say they like the mogul's blunt approach, that he "tells it like it is," without always detailing what "it is" that Trump is explaining so clearly. In some ways, the Trump question is an extension...

    Colorado Springs, the location of an attack on a Planned Parenthood clinic that left three people dead, is a centre of rightwing Christian culture with a “wild west mentality” when it comes to guns. The attack, by a lone gunman carrying a rifle or shotgun, took place at a clinic that is the site of regular anti-abortion protests by the city’s pro-life Christian groups. Planned Parenthood, aware of hostility about their work, recently moved to the new facility, hoping it would provide more security for staff. The building has been likened to a fortress by anti-abortion campaigners and Friday’s attacks...

    Once upon a time, "Black Friday" was a major event in the United States. Yes, the mainstream media is still endlessly hyping it up, and major retailers are still rolling out their "incredible deals", but it appears that most Americans are tiring of this particular gimmick. Or perhaps it is just that U.S. consumers don't have as much discretionary income as they once did. As you will see below, retail traffic this Black Friday was "much, much slower" than anticipated. And expectations were not great anyway - the number of shoppers was down last year, and it was being projected...

Students at Princeton University have discovered that the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs on their campus is named after … well … after Woodrow Wilson. Why is that important? Because, say the students, Wilson was a racist. And he wasn't just a garden variety racist. He was the most racist US President of the 20th century. Maybe the most racist president ever. In an editorial in the New York Times by the grandson of a victim of Wilson's purge of blacks from all management responsibilities...

    Quebec has refused an alleged federal request to suspend its “right-to-die” law, with the province’s justice and health ministers declaring the legislation will go into effect December 10 as planned, according to the Canadian Press. Liberal Justice Minister Jody Wilson-Raybould reportedly asked her provincial counterpart, Stephanie Vallee, on Wednesday to hold off implementing the province’s Bill 52 so the federal government can draft its own legislation. But Vallee says that Quebec will move ahead with Bill 52: “We’re staying the course, obviously,” she stated. That leaves pro-life advocates with “our great hope” that Quebec’s Superior Court will intervene and block...

Europeans and Latin Americans sponsoring the resolution could not be swayed, and insisted throughout the weeks leading up to the vote that the resolution on children must contain a specific prescription for “comprehensive evidence-based education on human sexuality,” and no alternative would satisfy them. Delegations implored the sponsors of the resolution to show “sensitivity” and to recognize the lack of consensus to no avail as they...

    A sociologist with no training in the physical sciences is puzzled why most Americans think the world is not doomed by global warming.

And he managed to publish his results, “Corporate funding and ideological polarization about climate change,” in the prestigious Proceedings of the National Academy of Science.What do you think his conclusions were? Perhaps that thirty years of failed temperature predictions boosted Americans’ skepticism? Or that the obvious eagerness of politicians to leverage exaggerated fears have left many skittish? Or...

    CHICAGO, ILLINOIS — After a day of protests meant to shut down Black Friday shopping to bring attention to black issues, by 4:30pm local time Michigan Avenue had mostly returned to normal. Traffic had returned to the street and shoppers were out in force, but pockets of activists still remained and continued to block the entrances to business. As the sun set in Chicago, the reality was still setting in: the Black Friday Shut Down was one of the left’s most successful direct actions in a recent memory. It was disruptive–but it was peaceful. And it was effective.

The 17-year-old was killed in October 2014, and was apparently armed with a knife at the time. Video of the shooting released on Tuesday, however, shows that he was walking away from police at the time he was shot 16 times by Officer Jason Van Dyke. Turnout was strong despite 39-degree weather and rainy conditions. Demonstrators shouted "16 shots!" and "No justice, no...

    There's a misleading debate over accepting Obama's first batch of Syrian migrants, the vast majority of whom are Sunni Muslim economic migrants, not refugees, and unlike the genuinely persecuted Christians and Yazidis whom we are not taking in, face no actual persecution. The media bellows ceaselessly that the Sunni Muslims are just like the Jews during the Holocausts. They're more like the Nazi war criminals fleeing Berlin after losing the war. Like the Nazis, they also hate America and want to kill Jews. Polls show at least 1,300 of Obama's first refugee batch support ISIS. The vast majority of Americans...
  • Exclusive: Marco Rubio Challenges Republican Leaders To End Obamacare Bailouts

    Senator Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) is challenging Republican leaders in Congress to officially stop taxpayer dollars from being used to bail out Obamacare. “If we don’t make this happen, then the American people have every right to be angry at the Republican leadership because this should be among our highest highest priorities at the end of this year,” the presidential contender says in an exclusive interview with Breitbart News. For years, Rubio has pressed leaders in his party to repeal the “risk corridor” provisions in Obamacare that would allow the federal government to effectively bail out insurance company losses from...

    Florida business gained national attention after terror attack. A lawsuit filed by a Muslim activist organization against a Florida firearms retailer who posted a “Muslim Free Zone” sign has been dismissed and the case ordered closed because the statement was protected by the First Amendment and the activists couldn’t show they were injured. The decision was released by U.S. District Judge Beth Bloom in a case brought by a local chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations against Florida Gun Supply, which was defended by officials with the American Freedom Law Center. AFLC Senior Counsel David Yerushalmi said, “This dismissal...
  • How the FBI Cracked a Chilling Black Friday Terror Plot

    On the morning of November 17th, 1962, FBI headquarters in Washington D.C. took on "all the trappings of a military command post," according to historian William Breuer. The previous night an intelligence puzzle had finally come together. The resulting picture staggered the FBI men. And these had served at their posts during WWII and the height of the Cold War. They'd seen plenty. Now they had mere days to foil a crime against their nation to rival Hideki Tojo's.The agents and officers were haggard and red-eyed but seriously wired. Like hawks on a perch they'd been watching the plot unfold,...

    On Wednesday, when most of the 47 million Thanksgiving travelers were driving somewhere to commit Thursday's sin of gluttony with those they profess to love, it sometimes seemed as if a tense million of them were in front of me on the interstates from Western Pennsylvania down to Cincinnati.On May 26th, in this space, I wrote Part I of a rant about that group of people who wage a personal war from that last bastion of obsessive, sometimes aggressive individualism: the command post of a motor vehicle on a public thoroughfare. Not that I'm a perfect driver. Do I sometimes...

    Has anybody seen Norman Rockwell? We gather together for the Thanksgiving holiday and a few days of family togetherness. The tables are groaning under time-honored dishes of our pilgrim forefathers, or so we like to think. We tell innocent stories about them and their Native American guests (or "Indians," as the first settlers called them). We draw inspiration from rough times, when families came to find freedom to worship in a new land, forging the first chapter of our history. On Thanksgiving we share our generational perspectives about what happened after that, in stories both uplifting and challenging. The challenging...

    There's a lot of talk about what should be done to help our Veterans who have so selflessly given themselves to the service of the United States. Republicans will talk a good game and make-believe they are the ones who actually care about Vets, but in reality, they have voted against Veteran benefits more times than anyone would ever care to count. It wasn't until the Democrats passed the Post-9/11 GI Bill that we, as a nation, actually started to again look like we care about those who put everything on the line for our nation. Then, in 2010, President...
