  • ‘The Height Of Hypocrisy’: The 7 People Reportedly Charged With Rioting In NYC Come From Privileged Backgrounds

    Seven individuals were reportedly arrested for destroying windows of storefronts and charged with rioting at a rally in New York City on Sept. 4, the New York Post reported. The New York Police Department tweeted the individuals’ mugshots on Sept. 8. The seven were reportedly arrested while attending a Revolutionary Abolitionist Movement and Panthers protest regarding the death of Daniel Prude who died in police custody in Rochester in March, according to the Post. “On Friday, September 4th, these individuals were arrested for rioting during demonstrations in Manhattan,” the NYPD tweeted. “They were part of a large group breaking storefront...
  • Mispronouncing Kamala's Name Is Racist...Until Biden Does It

    Fox News's Tucker Carlson made an unforgivable sin this week to the left while he was discussing Joe Biden's pick of Kamala Harris as his running mate. He mispronounced her name. Former Clinton adviser Richard Goodstein made a point of correcting him, saying he should get it right “out of respect for somebody who’s going to be on the national ticket, pronouncing her name right is actually kind of a bare minimum.” Other outlets were more blunt, saying the mispronunciation amounted to racism. “The failure to correctly pronounce Harris’ name — especially among those whose jobs it is to know...

    The Obama media empire continues to gain new ground. In addition to carving out a piece of the Netflix pie, acquiring a hosting gig on PBS Kids, and selling millions and millions of books about her life, Michelle Obama is now getting her very own podcast via the music streaming platform Spotify. Someday we’ll be telling our grandchildren how lucky we were to be living in the same time as Michelle Obama, we’re sure of it. Hollywood outlet Deadline broke the yuge news that the former First Lady to former President Barack Obama will be the star of a brand...
  • Black Conservatives Laugh at BLM Protest After They Notice There's No Black People

    I have a new hashtag for your consideration: #BlackLivesMatterSoWhite. Like it? I think it’s catchy and accurate. For all the talk about how black people are taking to the streets to demand equal treatment, one thing that’s curious about the recent spate of protests is that they don’t seem, well, very black. When white people began showing up en masse to these events, people attributed it to bad actors. The right said it was antifa, while the left said it was “white power” groups. There couldn’t have been that many of either group, however — and really, it was mostly...

    Country rocker Willie Nelson is set to perform at Joe Biden’s virtual fundraiser on Monday. Willie Nelson will join singer Robert Earl Keen as well as politicos including former HUD Secretary Julián Castro, failed presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke, and former Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards and the daughter of ex-Texas Governor Ann Richards. Biden supporters are expected to pay between $250 and $100,000 to view the Internet broadcast.

    NBA star LeBron James says that the National Football League owes Colin Kaepernick a full, official apology. In an interview with Bloomberg Businessweek released on Thursday, James said that the NFL needs to issue that apology to prove the league is “listening” to the players. James took aim at the NFL after being asked about the “I Can’t Breathe” he and other NBA players had been wearing during warmups. “As far as the NFL, I’m not in those locker rooms, I’m not with those guys, but I do understand that an apology — I have not heard a true, official...
  • Ulysses S. Grant, Francis Scott Key Statues Pulled Down By Protesters In San Francisco

    Protesters tore down the statues of Union Gen. Ulysses S. Grant and Francis Scott Key Friday in San Francisco. Grant, who led the Union army into battle against the Confederacy, and Scott Key, who wrote America’s national anthem, are just two of the latest statues to be ripped down by protesters on the Juneteenth holiday that marks the 155th anniversary since a federal order to liberate slaves reached Galveston, Texas, almost two and a half years after President Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation. Even though Grant is widely celebrated as the general who led the Union into the war that...

    Rocker Bruce Springsteen proclaimed this week that the United States needs “systemic changes” in its “law enforcement departments” in the wake of the police involved death of George Floyd. “We need systemic changes in our law enforcement departments and the political will of our national citizenry to once again move forward the kind of changes that will bring the ideals of the civil rights movement once again to life and into this moment,” said Springsteen on his satellite radio channel.
  • (NO)Joy Behar Compares Lockdown Protesters to White Supremacists in Charlottesville

    On Monday’s The View, the hosts opened up the show by crying outrage because President Trump praised a Long Island lockdown protest last Friday in a tweet. Joy Behar in particular was upset because angry protesters harassed a local news reporter there, so she compared them to the "white supremacists and neonazis" in Charlottesville, whose protest ended in violence. After putting up the tweet of Trump calling the protesters “great people,” Behar claimed this was just like when Trump called “neo nazis and white supremacists in Charlottesville, ‘great people.’” That is a false assertion the media loves to repeat nearly...
  • Biden Campaign to Latinos: Yeah, We Don't Need You to Beat Trump

    Former Vice President Joe Biden's campaign is coming under fire for their Latino outreach efforts or rather lack thereof. As more than 32 million Latinos are expected to vote in November, Biden's campaign has failed to rectify the Obama administration's tough deportation policies for illegal aliens, POLITICO reported. Instead of attempting to reach out and form a relationship with this group of voters, Biden's campaign appears to be turning a blind eye to Latinos, at least that's what Democratic operatives believe. "I do not think that the Biden campaign thinks that Latinos are part of their path to victory," Jess...

    As journalists have come under attack for accepting and forwarding Chinese propaganda about the coronavirus they unleashed from Wuhan, the National Association of Black Journalists was forced on Tuesday to cancel a panel discussion with CNN host Van Jones and former CNN analyst Roland Martin on the "rise of misinformation" on the virus when it became controversial due to its financial backer -- Huawei, a telecom giant connected to the Chinese communist government that's been indicted for racketerring and conspiracy to steal trade secrets. In a statement, the NABJ explained/complained: "It had come under attack because controversial technology giant Huawei...

    Loyola Marymount student said she will not back down Left-leaning students at a private Los Angeles based university are calling for the impeachment of a newly elected student government senator after discovering she supports strict policies on immigration. Stephanie Martinez was elected to the Loyola Marymount University student government as a “senator for diversity and inclusion” in early April after running an unopposed campaign, according to an independent student publication The Agency. Martinez told YAF that she had no plans to resign and “to resign would only mean that I am giving up my identity and my ideals or that...
  • CNN’s Lemon: Obama Is Better Looking, Smarter — Has ‘More Accomplished’ Wife than Trump(Laugh or barf?)

    Sunday night on CNN, anchor Don Lemon accused President Donald Trump of letting former President Barack Obama get under his skin because he is better looking, smarter, and has a more accomplished wife. After playing a clip of Obama giving a video message on the coronavirus pandemic, Lemon said, “Boy, oh, boy, that’s leadership. That’s compassion. It’s too bad that President Trump can’t show either.” He continued, “By the way, what is it about President Obama that really gets under your skin? Is it because he’s smarter than you? Better educated? Made it on his own? Didn’t need daddy’s help?...
  • Obama squirms about that Biden endorsement

    Now that the Democratic Party has all but consolidated behind decrepit Joe Biden to keep unelectable socialist Bernie Sanders off the top of its ticket, it's worth a snicker to consider President Obama, behind the scenes, suddenly realizing he's going to have to endorse idiot Joe Biden for president, a man he considers unfit for the office. Obama had withheld his endorsement for his faithful former vice president, which was pretty humiliating for Joe, a man Joe had touted as his "best friend" to the NAACP. Biden claimed he asked for no endorsement, which no one believed. Obama claimed he...

    “I have my views on the word ‘socialist,’ and I’ll be glad to share them with you in private and they go back to the early 1950s. I have an attitude about them, I remember the Cold War, I have an attitude toward Castro,” Matthews contined. “I believe if Castro and the reds had won the Cold War there would have been executions in Central Park and I might have been one of the ones getting executed and certain other people would be there cheering, OK?” “So I have a problem with people who took the other side,” Matthews continued....
  • Trump more dangerous than Putin and Kim Jong-un, say citizens of 1 world power

    A new report this week reveals that Germans have a negative view of President Trump. At least, that's what they suggested in a new poll, which says they see President Trump as a greater threat than the likes of Kim Jong Un or Vladimir Putin. It was the South China Morning Post that said, "U.S. President Donald Trump is seen as more dangerous than Vladimir Putin of Russia or North Korean leader Kim Jong-un." Those are the results drawn from a YouGov Survey that collected the responses of more than 2,000 Germans. "The participants also saw Trump as more dangerous...

    And as with many hot companies of today, one does not even have to prove the simple arithmetic behind the proposals: even if no money is ever made, the world, as a result, will become a much better place. In Liz and Bernie, the Valley is sensing kindred spirits: leaders with bold ideas, deployed at scale, with unlimited funding and unburdened by consequences. If everyone gets an almost free ride, buys an electric car below its manufacturing price, and gets food delivered below the price of the food itself, then why not have free healthcare and get electricity from thin...
  • CNN Sneers Trump's Playing 'Victim' While Clinton Went 'Back to Work' During Impeachment

    oobin picked up that comparison, praising Clinton for “going back to work for the American people” during his impeachment, which he claimed, Trump has not: There were like two White Houses. There was the impeachment White House with Paul Begala and Lanny Davis and that's all they did. And everyone else had absolutely nothing to do with it. And Bill Clinton from the day the story broke, he said ‘I'm going to go back to work for the American people.’ He never talked about it, and that was -- but Donald Trump is incapable of doing that. That's not how...
  • Human Rights v. Civil Rights before the Supreme Court, Again

    Because human rights are an expression of divine love, they are in no way amenable to coercion; however, they can be temporarily suppressed by man's law. Human rights pertain to the freedoms to love God and each other in family, community, and nation. They are the rights people are most willing to die for. Civil rights are based upon extrinsic and changing aims in the enterprises of the world. They are granted by men to each other in law to make the substantial transactions of life just and fair according to temporal viewpoints. Civil rights are dependent upon and conditioned...

    House Democrats on Thursday subpoenaed Department of Energy Secretary Rick Perry for Ukraine documents as part of their impeachment investigation against President Donald Trump. “Recently, public reports have raised questions about any role you may have played in conveying or reinforcing the President’s stark message to the Ukrainian President,” the letter reads from the chairmen of the House Intelligence, Oversight, and Foreign Affairs committees.
