  • Police: Women Attacks, Yells Gay Slurs At Fellow Miami Beach Lyft Passenger

    The state attorney's office will determine if a woman will face hate crime charges for attacking a fellow Lyft customer. Miami Beach police detectives say an angry and drunk Sherry Moody first yelled gay slurs at a fellow passenger and then kicked, slapped and scratched 57-year-old Jose Gonzales during their Jan. 26th ride. Her stiletto heel caused a puncture wound to his face. Gonzalez said Moody became angry that Gonzalez was scheduled to be dropped off first before she attacked him. The Lyft driver kicked her out, and she later turned herself in to face felony battery charges. Lyft released...
  • DWR could have lost control of Oroville spillway gates during crisis

    The state Department of Water Resources could have lost control of the spillway radial gates for days during the Oroville Dam crisis if crucial power lines had gone down, according to department officials. DWR leaders Cindy Messer and Joel Ledesma stated this Jan. 10 during a legislative oversight hearing on the dam at the State Capitol. This has since led some local groups to wonder why there was no backup power supply. Representatives of Friends of the River, the Sierra Club, South Yuba River Citizens League, California Sportfishing Protection Alliance and American Whitewater filed a letter with the Federal Energy...

    If you are a conservative, it is easy to believe that the tech giants have it in for conservatives. But what if that isn't true? What if the "Googlers" and the Facebookers and the Twittites are just idiots and don't know any better? I was down in the South Bay Area visiting a young Applite, and it just seemed to me that all these tech guys and the tech H.R. and diversity enforcers are just ordinary mortals, reflexively doing what they think they are supposed to. After all, unless you were an instinctive contrarian, you would have picked up the...

  • CNN: ‘Thomas the Tank Engine’ and ‘Paw Patrol’ Are ‘Fascist Cartoons’

    CNN called Thomas the Tank Engine and Paw Patrol “fascist cartoons” in an article on Friday, days before children around the globe will find toys from the popular shows under the Christmas tree. In the article, titled “Why kids love ‘fascist’ cartoons like ‘Paw Patrol’ and ‘Thomas,'” CNN contributor Elissa Strauss claimed children are “drawn to worlds in which identities are fixed, order trumps imagination and transgressions are met with routine punishment.” “This clash between what parents desire for their children and what children desire for themselves is most easily observable in cartoon preferences. So often, the more parents dislike...
  • Why The US Map Could Look Radically Different In 15 Years

    IWB ^ | Daniel Carter
    The United States has been consistently gobbling up new territory for the last 241 years. Ever since the founders declared the 13 colonies independent from Britain, the US has acquired its 50 states through clever land deals and plunder. The current US map does not even include the 16 territories and hundreds of military bases spread throughout the world. With its extreme propensity for growth, the US has undoubtedly amassed the largest empire known to man. However, the US empire has hit its peak and is now unraveling quickly. For more detail on why this is the case, you can...

    Across the globe, any events or elections that are made by the people exercising their democratic rights and free will are being questioned (in terms of legitimacy) with the allegation that they were cheated and lied to by “Russian Bots” and “Russian employed posters.” But there is a major point that everyone is missing. And that is that people in Russia know how to use a basic computer! Imagine for a moment that you are one of these “Russian trolls” that works for the Kremlin. You have been hired because of your computer and English skills to create a web...

    I hear a lot of talk about staying home instead of voting for the Establishment RINO candidate Ed Gillespie in Virginia. The reason that is often times given for staying home is that there is no difference between the two, so why vote at all. So they use the same reasoning that was used in 1992 when many Republicans refused to the pull the lever that would have re-elected George H Bush. Oh I remember those days well, because I was trying to convince people to not vote for the hand-grenade with a bad haircut. Many die hard conservatives at...

  • Pittsburgh Art Commission votes to recommend removal of Stephen Foster statue

    PITTSBURGH — The Pittsburgh Art Commission voted Wednesday to recommend the Stephen Foster statue in Oakland be removed. The recommendation is that the statue is removed from the public and placed in a place in private and "properly contextualized." The Pittsburgh Art Commission will recommend removal of the statue within six months. Foster, a Pittsburgh native who died in 1864, is famous for classic songs including “Oh! Susanna” and “Camptown Races.” Many of his songs were used in minstrel shows in which actors performed in blackface. The statue depicts Foster sitting above shoeless, banjo-playing “Uncle Ned,” a slave character from...

    With the horrific shooting that recently took place in Las Vegas, debates over gun control have been given center stage in our media and politics once again. And while every pundit seems to have their own surefire way of combatting gun violence, they all gloss over the elephant in the room. Which is, although mass shootings have taken on a repulsive popularity recently, the gun violence surrounding the War on Drugs has created more casualties than every mass shooting in the US combined. And despite the fact that these commentators tirelessly argue the merits and faults of one another’s ideas,...

    Why is there no motive for the Vegas massacre? Why did Stephen Paddock have a secret life? It is terrible to contemplate, but the possibility that Stephen Paddock was an undercover federal operative or informant cannot be ruled out. He may have been set up or used by ISIS and/or a federal agency in a scheme that backfired. The feds may have thought they were going to catch ISIS in the act of preparing a major terrorist attack. ISIS terrorists may have thought Paddock was one of them, but realized at the last minute it was a set-up. They claimed...
  • Tim Kaine: Vegas Attacker Stopped ‘Because He Didn’t Have a Silencer’

    Sen. Tim Kaine (D-VA) claims the attacker who opened fire on Las Vegas concert goers was only stopped “because he didn’t have a silencer on his weapon.” According to the Washington Post, Kaine asked, “Can you imagine what this would have been if he had silencers on those weapons?” His use of the word “silencer” is an echo of other leftists like Rosanne Cash and Gabby Giffords, both of whom use the word “silencer” to describe suppressors.

    American Thinker ^ | May 5, 2017 | By Ed Straker
    Liberals are salivating at the idea of taxing cars by the distance they travel, to better rake in money for their nefarious purposes. In California, they are taking the idea one step farther, planning to tax space rockets by the mile as well. According to the proposal, California will collect tax from space transportation companies based on a formula factoring in how often a company launches spacecrafts out of the state, and, most importantly, how far a commercial spacecraft travels from California soil. Between May and mid-October, there were eight launches from Vandenberg Air Force Base, in Santa Barbara County...

    Wealthy white Americans who do not eat meat, dairy products or anything else derived from animals are failing to support minority groups and valuing the lives of livestock more than the Black Lives Matter, according to an op-ed in The Daily Texan, the student newspaper at the University of Texas at Austin. The author of the 558-word jeremiad against “homogeneous,” “pale-skinned” and “definitely white” American veganism is Audrey Larcher. The “cruelty-free culture of wealth, privilege and exclusivity” inherent to veganism in the United States “is a ‘white thing,'” the privileged student at one of America’s most notable taxpayer-funded universities explains,...

    In 49 B.C., Julius Caesar, governor of Gaul, and his legion forded the Rubicon, the dividing line between Gaul and Italy, and marched on Rome, thus declaring civil war. Rome was the last of the free cities that had existed throughout the Mediterranean. They had vanished and finally only Rome, a republic, remained. Her people were free citizens of the republic, not subjects of a single ruler. The Roman Republic of a thousand years ended with Caesar’s invasion and the Roman Empire and rule of emperors – actually dictators – began. The founders of our republic drew in part from...
