    ONLY two of the 20-plus reporters who covered the presidential campaign for The New York Times were black. None were Latino or Asian. That’s less diversity than you’ll find in Donald Trump’s cabinet thus far. Of The Times’s newly named White House team, all six are white, as is most everyone in the Washington bureau. Traveling to other departments, Metro has only three Latinos among its 42 reporters, in a city with the second largest Hispanic population in the country. Sports has one Asian man, two Hispanics and no African-Americans among its 21 reporters, yet blacks are plentiful among the...

    The socialist essayist and novelist George Orwell by 1944 grew depressed that as a cost for the defeat of the Axis Powers the Allies had empowered an equally nightmarish monster in the Soviet Union. Since his days fighting for the loyalists during the Spanish Civil War, the left-wing Orwell had become an increasingly outspoken enemy of Communism. After the defeat of Nazi Germany, when Stalin renounced all his wartime assurances and steamrolled Eastern Europe, Orwell came to see state socialism under authoritarian auspices as the greatest threat to human freedom. It was not as if right-wing dictators were not equally...

    The EPA is without a doubt the most corrupt agency in the Obama Administration. That’s saying something when you consider the fact that there have been over a dozen scandals during his reign. Remember when the EPA accidentally dumped millions of gallons of toxic waste into the drinking water that was used by thousands of people? They’ve never been punished for it in a meaningful way and apparently that could change very soon. From The Daily Signal: “New Mexico and Colorado are both suing the EPA, and now the Supreme Court has asked the acting solicitor general of the United...

    We all think we know what hypocrisy is: claiming to have certain moral and ethical standards or beliefs to which one's own behavior does not conform. But given the across the board hysterical response to Donald Trump's presidential win, it seems Octavio Paz's sentiment that hypocrisy can be a character trait applies. "When hypocrisy is a character trait, it also affects one's thinking, because it consists in the negation of all the aspects of reality that one finds disagreeable, irrational or repugnant."Hypocrisy is indeed a character trait of the American Left. For months, the Left has been predicting that if...

    The organization behind an effort to raise Maine’s minimum wage to $12 an hour has been advertising for new workers at a rate closer to $10 an hour. An online ad posted Tuesday by the Maine People’s Alliance indicates new phone canvassers/organizers would be paid $429 every two weeks for working 21.25 hours a week. That works out to $10.09 an hour, considerably less than the $12 minimum wage the alliance is seeking by 2020.

    As Senate Democrats filibuster, I’m left wondering: what would Democrats do if conservatives agreed to halt the sale of semi-automatic assault-style rifles only if Democrats agreed to ban abortions after 20 weeks?In the wake of the horrific murders in Orlando, the Left has reverted to their self-righteous talking points and cherry-picked facts. As we now know, this attack had an immediate cause—an evil guy with a Sig Sauer MCX—and underlying causes—mental health problems, an adherence to extremist religious propaganda, a struggle with his sexual orientation. For tragic perspective, last year, there were 372 mass shootings (defined as an incident in...

    "White House should have waited to call Trump racist; look who got sued for forcing a judge to recuse herself!" The White House jumped on comments House Speaker Paul Ryan made in order to characterize Donald Trump as a racist. But using the Obama administration’s exact same logic, Obama would also be a racist. Just last year the United States Department of Justice was sued after it forced an immigration judge to recuse herself from “all immigration cases involving Iranians,”according to the Daily Caller. Trump has long been critical of U.S. District Court Judge Gonzalo Curiel, who is hearing a...

    The time was eight years ago. The scene: An Alaska consignment shop. Reporters far and wide ran to the Land of the Midnight Sun to do what reporters do: Go straight to the source, get the facts. This was a huge story, one of national importance, after all… CBS News Headline: Just one week before the 2008 election: Palin’s Consignment Shop’s Owner Speaks The CBS News reporter sent was Julie Chen. Her pointed questions included: “So how long has Governor Palin shopped at your store?” “What does she usually buy at your store?” “And does she also shop for her...

    The following is the testimony of one David Campos, a former member of Share Wheel who witnessed first hand, discrimination, theft, fraud and other problems in SHARE My name is David Campos, I am a former member of SHARE.

I joined Share in 2010. I liked the place, it was laid back, everyone kept to themselves there were just...

    The political establishment, and all their bootlicking suck-ups in the media and academia, are sanctimonious hypocrites when it comes to race. Where were the howls of racism when Obama nominated Sonia Sotomayor to the Supreme Court? Let's face it---she wasn't nominated because of her legal and constitutional acumen, she was nominated because she was a Latina who would reliably toe the Marxist-establishment line in her decisions. It was clearly a racist nomination, but nobody said a word. (Sotomayor calls herself a wise Latina. I have news for her---I have a basset hound with a more nuanced understanding of the Constitution...

    Hillary Clinton took a lot of flak on Monday after a report surfaced that the presidential candidate wore a Giorgio Armani jacket worth more than $12,000 during a speech in April about inequality. Clinton, who was well-known for her vast pantsuit collection, has upgraded her wardrobe during her most recent bid for president to appear more relatable, according to the New York Post. Social media users don't seem to be buying it, however.
  • Will GOP leaders hitting Trump on Curiel also criticize "White Privilege" proponents?

    06/06/2016 8:29:05 AM PDT · by SoFloFreeper · 14 replies
    Another question/observation. The academic world, media, and social networks are very fond these days of asserting the notion of "White Privilege"... an apparent blanket accusation against an entire RACE of people. Trump, however, points to a particular judge and HE is accused of racism. He didn't accuse every Mexican of being unfair, did he? Now we go to the GOP. They tear into Trump for his words, but I have YET to see them criticize this RAMPANT accusation against all whites.

    Just had FOX News on the past hour or so. They cannot get enough of the adulation for Muhammed Ali. I'm not creating the thread to debate the pros or cons of that position. Just want to observe: they're playing clip after clip of Ali boasting of his power and skill and abilities. And the media is saying what a wonderful fellow he was. Seems to me there is a parallel today in another arena.
