  • Native American Leaders: We Feel ‘Silenced’ When Statues Removed Without Us

    06/30/2020 9:40:44 AM PDT · by rktman · 18 replies ^ | 6/30/2020 | Joel B Pollak
    Native American leaders in the San Francisco area are upset that city leaders decided to remove a statue of Christopher Columbus that was targeted by Black Lives Matter riots, because indigenous leaders were not consulted or present. As Breitbart News reported earlier this month, the City of San Francisco preemptively removed a prominent Columbus statue that rioters had targeted for destruction. They intended it to drag it to the San Francisco Bay and throw it in there. However, according to the San Francisco Chronicle, while Native American leaders were pleased to see the statues of Columbus and other early colonial...

    A top House Republican urged the chairman of the Democratic-led House Judiciary Committee to use Attorney General William Barr’s planned July testimony as a chance to carry out oversight on the “weaponization” of the Obama Justice Department to target now-President Trump. Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio sent a four-page letter to Chairman Jerry Nadler of New York on Friday, telling him he should take advantage of Barr’s appearance to look into the alleged misdeeds conducted during the Trump-Russia investigation. “The Attorney General’s appearance is also an opportunity for the Committee to conduct oversight of the Obama-Biden Administration’s weaponization of the...
  • BLM Protests Spark calls for Dixie Chicks to Change Their Name

    06/20/2020 2:47:00 PM PDT · by rktman · 120 replies ^ | 6/19/2020 | Bailey Duran
    Following weeks of protests about police brutality and racism, many activists have begun calling out the band Dixie Chicks to change their name, claiming the word “Dixie” harbors “the epitome of white America.” The Dixie Chicks, a band composed of Natalie Maines and twin sisters Martie Maguire and Emily Strayer, is a country band that was started in 1989. The Chicks soared to popularity until a comment by Maines about President George W. Bush in 2003 sent their career on a downward spiral from which it never fully recovered. In London for a concert, Maines told the crowd in 2003,...

    The Justice Department on Monday, June 1 filed a brief urging the Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit to force district court judge Emmet Sullivan to dismiss the prosecution of former national security adviser Michael Flynn. That move came after the Justice Department moved to drop a charge against Flynn, who previously pled guilty to lying to the FBI about his contacts with Russia’s ambassador, and Sullivan declined to immediately abandon the case. In their brief on Monday, the Justice Department said Sullivan was wrong to seek outside input by appointing an amicus curiae to argue against dismissal and...
  • Joe Biden Likens Running Mate Process to Pinup Calendar Competition

    05/11/2020 4:56:03 PM PDT · by rktman · 43 replies ^ | 5/11/2020 | Kyle Olson
    In “private encounters,” Joe Biden likened a vice presidential nominee selection process to browsing monthly morsels in a pinup calendar. The New York Times reported: It is not lost on Mr. Biden that whomever he chooses might well be elected the nation’s first female president after his turn, or at least become a new front-runner for the distinction. He has called himself a “bridge” to the next generation of Democratic leaders, a transitional figure whose chief goal is the removal of President Trump. That Mr. Biden is a 77-year-old man likely to accept the nomination during a pandemic has attached...
  • Illinois Mayor Who Sent Cops to Break Up Banned Party Finds Wife There

    An Illinois mayor who sent the police to crack down on parties of more than ten people during the coronavirus pandemic found his wife at one of those parties. Brant Walker, mayor of Alton, ordered the police to crack down on anyone who violated Gov. J.B. Pritzker’s stay-at-home order issued on March 20, which has now been extended to April 30. According to the order, all nonessential businesses have to cease operation and residents have to stay home unless they have to leave for essential needs such as grocery shopping, seeking medical care, or going to the pharmacy. There is...
  • Firefox turns controversial new encryption on by default in the US

    Starting today, Mozilla will turn on by default DNS over HTTPS (DoH) for Firefox users in the US, the company has announced. DoH is a new standard that encrypts a part of your internet traffic that’s typically sent over an unencrypted plain text connection, and which could allow others to see what websites you’re visiting, even when your communication with the website itself is encrypted using HTTPS. Mozilla says it is the first browser to support the new standard by default, and will be rolling it out gradually over the coming weeks in order to address any unforeseen issues.Whenever you...

    The billionaire’s boondoggle campaign goes everywhere and nowhere. It’s Wednesday and Michael Bloomberg is on a farm in Minnesota. Nobody, including him, knows why. Minnesota in the winter is a long way from Bloomberg’s Bermuda estate where he spent much of his time as mayor of New York City, and, if he were to win in 2020, would spend his presidential term. While fighting a war on coal, the billionaire environmentalist crusader liked to jet over on Fridays to his waterfront estate in Bermuda to escape the New York City winters and then jet back again on Sundays. “We should...

    On Friday, six Democratic presidential candidates spoke to a handful of people at the first-ever "Presidential Forum on Environmental Justice," held at South Carolina State University. More people probably would have attended the event if they knew what "environmental justice" means. According to a press release from the event organizers, the forum gave "candidates an opportunity to share their policies and visions for the country through an environmental justice lens, and moreover, connect and learn from voters of color whose issues are frequently overlooked. The forum will center the voices of marginalized communities to learn how presidential hopefuls intend to...
  • 'Absolutely Savage': Trump Campaign Trolls Biden After He Makes Rookie Mistake With Latino (T)

    The Biden campaign made a rookie mistake in launching its latest Latino voter outreach program—a mistake that Team Trump capitalized on in a heartbeat. Prior to rolling out the new outreach initiative, “Todos Con Biden,” his campaign failed to purchase or even reserve the Twitter handle, @TodosConBiden. Naturally, the Trump campaign stepped in and trolled the former vice president. Best line in this story: "How the hell are you Joe Biden's campaign and you don't lock up the URL before you announce stuff?" They also didn’t claim @todosconbiden on Twitter, so we grabbed that too. Give it a follow,...
  • Colbert Wants to Pretend Buttigieg Isn’t Very Liberal: Don’t Get ‘Pigeonholed!’

    Stephen Colbert’s Late Show has become a required stopping point for 2020 Democrats. Making it clear that he has no interest in bipartisan jokes, Colbert is basically stumping for all the contenders. On Thursday’s show, the host tried to pretend that Mayor Pete Buttigieg isn’t extremely liberal. Talking to the man who has hard-left views on guns, abortion, wants to pack the Supreme Court and eliminate the electoral college, Colbert seized on Buttigieg’s use of the term "ideological centrism." The comedian pretended, “So, when you say ideological centrism... are you saying that to make sure you don't get pigeonholed into...
  • CNN seriously embarrassed by 8 women who don't fall into network trap

    In a stunning moment of clarity on CNN, the Cable News Network tried and failed Tuesday to convince eight Republican women that President Trump is racist, based on his recent tweets against four minority Democratic women in Congress. All of the women in the focus group in Dallas, Texas, previously voted for Trump, and ferociously rejected the network’s premise that the president is racist, proffered by CNN’s Randi Kaye on “Anderson Cooper 360°.” “I’m a brown-skinned woman. I am a legal immigrant. I agree with him,” said Trump supporter Sharon Bolan. Gina O’Briant said, “I’m glad that the president said...

  • LeBron James makes careless mistake in Lakers' critical loss to Phoenix Suns

    One play in the fourth quarter, however, seemed to sum up the Lakers’ struggles perfectly. James, after a Suns’ made basket, went to inbound the ball. As he tossed it, it hit the bottom of the backboard and sailed out of bounds again, handing Phoenix the ball right back. It was a careless turnover rarely seen at the NBA level.
  • Celine Dion turns to 'dark side' with gender-neutral kids' clothing

    The National Catholic Register says singer Celine Dion has gone to the “dark side” with a newly announced line of clothing for children that is “gender-neutral” black and white and features images of skulls. A news service described a new ad in which “Dion pulls out a handful of black sparkles and blows them into the air causing all the pink and blue outfits to become black and white gender-neutral pieces.” Ezra Levant of Rebel Media posted a video commentary in which he said the clothes “are as ugly as you’d think.” “For one thing, they have lots of skulls....

    Mon Dieu! The globalists among us are all in a snit that President Trump attended the G7 Summit in Quebec and he didn’t play nice. Trump made himself perfectly clear before he left Washington Friday that he intends to make America’s trade deals great again. He will not allow other countries to impose higher tariffs on the U.S. without responding in kind. Why is this a surprise?

    Black activists aren’t satisfied with Florida Democratic National Committee (DNC) member John Parker’s explanation that he meant to say “people of color” but used the expression “colored people” instead. They want him to resign. Parker told Politico that he was trying to say “people of color” but didn’t get it right. Parker’s own wife has joined the chorus of African-Americans and Democratic officials who say the DNC committeeman from Duval County, Florida, needs to step aside. Parker made the remarks on Jan. 22 while speaking at a party meeting in Jacksonville and apologized after the initial uproar from those present...
  • The Paris Climate Accords Are Looking More and More Like Fantasy

    Remember Paris? It was not even two years ago that the celebrated climate accords were signed — defining two degrees of global warming as a must-meet target and rallying all the world’s nations to meet it — and the returns are already dispiritingly grim. This week, the International Energy Agency announced that carbon emissions grew 1.7 percent in 2017, after an ambiguous couple of years optimists hoped represented a leveling off, or peak; instead, we’re climbing again. Even before the new spike, not a single major industrial nation was on track to fulfill the commitments it made in the Paris...

    A driver tried to pass himself off as Homer Simpson. Milton Keynes, England – A Thames Valley police constable was presented with cartoon character Homer Simpson’s driver’s license during a traffic stop earlier this month, the department said. When the police constable pulled over an unnamed male driver for a traffic infraction, she went about her regular routine of asking the man for his driver’s license, FOX News reported. She was presented with a fake license, which bore an animated photo of the yellow Simpson patriarch as he made his famous “D’oh!” face, with his hand raised to his head....
