    Reuters ^ | February 17, 2017 | Gina Cherelus and Olga Grigoryants
    A second consecutive day of protests against U.S. President Donald Trump's month-old administration appeared to lose momentum on Friday, with rallies in Chicago, Los Angeles and New York attracting small yet enthusiastic crowds. Activists had called for a "general strike" a day after thousands of immigrants across the United States stayed home from work and school during "A Day Without Immigrants" to highlight the contributions of foreign-born workers to the American economy. Strike4Democracy, one of the groups organizing Friday's strike, said more than 100 public protests were expected around the country. In New York, more than 16,000 people responded to...
  • Supporters Want Bernie Sanders To Start His Own Party

    Bernie Sanders may have lost the Democratic presidential nomination last year, but it appears he hasn’t lost the ardent support of his fan base. Some people who were “feeling the Bern,” including members of the Vermont senator’s campaign staff, certain delegates and a group of volunteers began a campaign Thursday for Sanders to spearhead his own political party. “Draft Bernie for a People’s Party” is aimed at transforming Sanders’ amorphous, widespread support base into a new, concrete political party. The proposed party said it intends to mobilize opposition to President Donald Trump. “This party will offer new progressive electoral choices...
  • Protesters Shut Down House Committee Meeting Over HF 322 (Govt. can sue protesters for costs)

    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Angry protesters forced a Minnesota House committee to briefly recess Tuesday morning after it passed a bill that would let local governments sue protesters to recover law enforcement costs. The measure passed 9-to-6 along party lines in the House Civil Law and Data Practices Policy Committee. Immediately after, an angry crowd erupted in protest over the bill, known as House File 322. Among the protesters shouting at lawmakers was John Thompson, a friend of Philando Castile, who was shot and killed last summer by a St. Anthony police officer. “Shame on you,” Thompson yelled at lawmakers. “You...
  • I Want to Trust the Women's Marchers (Most not radical and dedicated enough for the author)

    The Women’s March was, by most reported measures, a success. Though it remains to be seen what the organization’s subsequent “10 Actions/ 100 Days” campaign will yield, it succeeded most at what I’m guessing the vast majority of participants assumed the march was about: making it clear to Donald Trump that he does not have a mandate and his attempt to govern via bigoted, impetuous policies will be met with resistance. On Saturday I attended the march in Los Angeles and can’t say I began the day with much enthusiasm, especially when compared to the downright giddiness I witnessed from...
  • Smug progressive transplants help to explain Trump’s victory in rural Wisconsin

    Hot Air ^ | January 22, 2017 | John Sexton
    Politico magazine has an interesting piece up today titled “What Do You Do if a Red State Moves to You?” That title is actually close to being the opposite of what the piece describes. It’s not about red staters moving into the cities. It’s about blue staters deciding, for one reason or another, to colonize a small county in rural Wisconsin and then being horrified to find not everyone who lives there shares their political outlook. The author suggests the cultural smugness of these progressive transplants is one reason some people in this rural county voted for Donald Trump. The...

    The hottest ticket to the Women’s March on Washington is on the bus-sharing startup Skeddadle, which allows people to commission private bus rides and is trying to change the future of long-distance transportation. Most of Skeddadle’s business comes from people scheduling events – going to ski resorts or music festivals for a weekend. It’s a social experience where passengers share rides with people who have similar interests. But Skeddadle sees itself as public transit of the future, and is building towards being the least expensive, most convenient way to get in or out of a city. “The March is amazing...

    Convicted Sterling Hall bomber Karl Armstrong was arrested last week in Chicago after state troopers found more than $800,000 cash in heat-sealed bags stashed inside of a motor home that Armstrong was driving, according to a document filed Monday in court. That arrest Thursday led to a search on Saturday by the state Division of Criminal Investigation of a town of Madison trailer home where Armstrong lives for evidence of marijuana trafficking, according to a search warrant filed in Dane County Circuit Court. Neither Wisconsin nor Illinois authorities found marijuana in Armstrong's trailer or motor home.

  • Che Guevara’s Motorcycle Diaries: A Hippie Discovers Communism and Becomes a Monster

    The Motorcycle Diaries is not a “coming-of-age” story as it has been described by a number of commentators. When Che Guevara took off on a motorcycle journey across South America he was not a teenager; he was 23-years-old and therefore already “of age.” In my view, this book has nothing to do with coming-of-age issues, rather it is a “hippie discovers communism” kind of story. The Che Guevara that we meet in The Motorcycle Diaries is a hippie who drifts from place to place without any coherent plan. He is alienated from society. He sees the ill effects of materialism...

  • Thrillist: Ithaca shockingly named Most Hippie Town in New York

    ITHACA, N.Y. -- Ithaca was shockingly named the Most Hippie Town in New York in an article published by Thrillist last week. The list -- which includes classically hippie towns such as: Homer, Alaska; Santa Cruz, California; Athens, Georgia; and Asheville, North Carolina -- was written by Matt Meltzer. He wrote, "Thought we'd go Woodstock, did ya? Well, aside from being home to the mud-soaked music fest on Yasgur's farm, it's really become more of a hippie tourist trap than an actual town. Ithaca, however, has THE WORLD'S LARGEST FREAKING PEACE SIGN."

    In this 1969 documentary of a seditious meeting of communists with the notorious communist and terrorist Walter T Howard CCCP of New York City, we see Bernie Sanders attending a meeting and a filming of a North Vietnamese communist film that portrays the communist viet cong as freedom fighters and the Americans as torturers and barbarians. This and other films were shown by student radicals and marxists as Americans were being killed by the North Vietnamese army and the VietCong and as Vietnamese civilians were being murdered, tortured, buried alive and extorted by the communists and their gangster protection schemes...

    Hey everyone I'm having fun on my vacation with my family, we've done a lot this summer and I know many of you wanted some good articles and I felt compelled to do this particular article about Amy Chua for a while. In fact I've meant to do this several months ago but for whatever reason I never did. That changed while in California. California has the tenth worst education system in the country. Public school teachers especially in California really don't give a damn about our kids... They take our money, raise our kids to be commies, illiterates and...

The state’s transportation agency said in a letter that it has initiated consultation with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service on the three species.The construction of the MoPac Intersections Project across the environmentally sensitive Barton Springs Edwards Aquifer Recharge Zone, in...
  • Russian warplanes bomb elite British-backed Syrian rebels

    Russian warplanes bombed an elite force of US-trained Syrian rebels on Thursday in an attack apparently aimed at weakening the group’s ability to fight Isil. The New Syrian Army (NSA), which receives training and direction from British, American and Jordanian special forces, said their base had been struck with cluster bombs. The strike left two people dead and another 18 injured, appearing to incapacitate at least half of the force and drawing a furious reaction from Washington. "Russia's latest actions raise serious concern about Russian intentions," a US official told Reuters, speaking on condition of anonymity. "We will seek an...

    MOUNT SHASTA, Calif. — It is a glorious day in Northern California, and Lewis Elbinger, a 68-year-old Bernie Sanders supporter, is feeling great — or, as he puts it, “high vibe.” In the five decades since he first painted a white peace sign on his forehead, protested the Vietnam War and hitchhiked to India to become a monk, in fact, he has never felt more optimistic about the country than at this very moment. “A consciousness is rising,” he says. A case could be made that this is not exactly so in the sense that Elbinger means it. Donald Trump...

    This is part 1 of a series of episodes I am doing on the Seattle homeless crisis. It illustrates perfectly the problems with big government, the insanity of liberals and the great lengths these red diaper doper baby liberal degenerates will go to get a free lunch off the backs of those who earn their lunch by their own sweat and tears. This first episode is a prologue of sorts, at focus is the failure of Olympia and city hall in particular a taxpayer funded program, The committee to end homelessness in King county that has gotten little attention but...

    [The irony is strong with this one...] Sanders' 'endless political discussion' distracted the hippies from their work Bernie Sanders was asked to leave a hippie commune in 1971 for “sitting around and talking” about politics instead of working, according to a forthcoming book. We Are As Gods by Kate Daloz, scheduled for release April 26, chronicles the rise and fall of the Myrtle Hill Farm in northeast Vermont. Daloz, a Brooklyn writer, was in a special position to write a history of Myrtle Hill: she was raised near the commune in a geodesic dome residence with an outhouse called the...
