    Hillary’s endorsement of Sybrina Fulton is no small thing. Rather, it is a significant piece in Hillary’s long history of promoting lies, hoaxes and the odious manipulation of events in order to advance her party’s political fortunes. That history ranges from Hillary’s trashing of women with whom her husband had affairs or had sexually assaulted, to preposterously claiming she’d come under sniper fire as First Lady while visiting Bosnia, to attempting to smear Donald Trump as an “agent of Russia” in her epic fail as a presidential candidate. I could go on, but we all know what a “congenital liar”...

    Black Virginia girl who accused white boys of cutting her dreadlocks recants It sounded almost too outrageous to be true: A black girl attacked during recess at a private Christian school by three white boys who cut off her dreadlocks. As it turns out, it wasn’t true. The racially charged allegations made by 12-year-old Amari Allen were false, according to statements by her family and Immanuel Christian School in Springfield, Virginia, the latest example of what author and professor Wilfred Reilly calls an “epidemic of hoax hate crimes.” “I would say most of the highly publicized hate crime incidents in...

    Last month, 12-year-old Amari Allen appeared on television to share how she had been brutalized by racist white boys at Immanuel Christian School in Springfield, Virginia. .... When the story first broke, left-wing politicians and activists raged. Rep. Rashida Tlaib published a personalized message on Twitter to the girl: “You see, Amari, you may not feel it now but you have a power that threatens their core. I can’t wait to watch you use it and thrive.” On Twitter, some even found a way to blame the Trump administration, noting ominously that Vice President Mike Pence’s wife, Karen, teaches art...

    Actor Jussie Smollett has hit back at a social media post comparing him to a schoolgirl who claimed she was pinned down and had her dreadlocks cut off. Self-help internet star, Derrick Jackson, posted a comment on Instagram comparing the former Empire actor to Amari Allen, who alleged three white boys hacked off her hair, then retracted the claims. Smollett then fired back in a lengthy post, claiming he 'hadn't lied about a thing', when he alleged two men attacked him in a racial and homophobic assault. The row started when The Shade Room posted a screenshot on Instagram of...

    If I were Trayvon Martin’s parents or his family’s attorneys, I would be very nervous. And if I were the media who covered this case — — I would prepare to be mortified. The coverage of this case was a disgrace from day one. To uncover this staggering fraud, Gilbert did what reporters used to do. He immersed himself in the milieu that produced Trayvon Martin. He reviewed the thousands of text messages, tweets, Facebook and Instagram postings sent and received by Martin and his friends. He interviewed George Zimmerman, the only person who knew, Martin’s final words that revealed...

    PORTLAND, Ore. — Joe Fontenot walked away from his comedy show Saturday night with a black eye. The Portland comedian said he was performing at a venue in Hood River when he was attacked. He said he usually stays away from religion and politics during his act, but he took a chance that night. Fontenot said he was making fun of President Donald Trump's infamous statement about creating a Space Force when a man in the audience stood up and shouted, "Make America great again!" then walked on stage. "I just said, 'Someone should build a wall around you,' and...

    In a surprise move, a Cook County judge ordered the appointment of a special prosecutor Friday to investigate the controversial decision to drop all charges against Jussie Smollett. Judge Michael Toomin ruled that State’s Attorney Kim Foxx had the right to withdraw from the prosecution but could not legally appoint her top deputy to handle the case in her place. The special prosecutor could end up charging Smollett, Toomin said, and if the investigation uncovers suspicion of wrongdoing by others, additional charges could be brought. Toomin made the decision even though the county’s inspector general’s office is already investigating the...

The NYPD’s investigation determined that the supposed victim was the one instigating the conflict. (NY Post) A Manhattan straphanger who claimed to have...

    Jussie Smollett is the victim of an out of control media and social media storm and the "Empire" star is suffering profound emotional issues from simply telling the truth about the "attack" ... so says his brother.

    @DavidAxelrod: "Unless some better explanation surfaces, here’s the lesson of this weird turn in the Smollett case: You can contrive a hate crime, make it a national news, get caught and-if you are a well-connected celebrity-get off for $10K and have your record expunged and files sealed" "Hate crimes are loathsome. Faking them is insidious and shouldn’t be excused. Despite Smollett’s denials, nothing the prosecutor said in dismissing the case supports that. If prosecutors have evidence that contradicts the indictment THEY brought, they should share it today."

    JACKSON, Miss. — A member of a black church in Mississippi has pleaded guilty to burning the church, which was also spray painted with the slogan “Vote Trump,” a week before the 2016 presidential election. Andrew McClinton, 47, pleaded guilty to arson Thursday, the Delta Democrat-Times reported. His sentencing is set for late April. Investigators said McClinton belonged to Hopewell Missionary Baptist Church in Greenville, which was vandalized and burned.
