    Leftist agitators employed fascist tactics at a Donald Trump fundraiser in Minneapolis on Friday night. Video shows protesters banging on the doors of the Minneapolis Convention Center where Trump was speaking to attendees. When the event concluded, Trump supporters were forced to run a “gauntlet,” with many, including elderly women, being punched and pelted with garbage.

    Last night (August 17, 2016) a friend of mine want to take some friend to see "Hillary's America — The Secret History of the Democratic Party," the newest documentary film by Dinesh D'Souza. It had been showing at quite a few theaters locally but he suddenly could not find any theaters showing it near Modesto, Stockton or Lodi. He asked me to see if I could find where it was showing. I tried Sacramento. None. . . not a single theater in a city with a metropolitan population over over 1.5 million was showing that film, when just last week...

    Robert Spencer says behavior is "suspicious in the extreme"KETTERING, Ohio (ChurchMilitant.com) - Three Arab men were caught recording footage in Ascension Catholic Church in Kettering, Ohio Sunday, claiming they were only "studying" Christianity — but JihadWatch's Robert Spencer is calling their behavior "suspicious in the extreme." The men, who were visiting their families from Saudi Arabia, had all passed background checks and, according to church authorities, simply breached "proper etiquette." While their actions did arouse suspicion, we believe their actions were simply a breach of proper etiquette," a statement on Ascension's website read Thursday morning.

    Father Josiah Trenham mentioned “intimidation” to the parishioners of St. Andrew Orthodox Church, and he was quite right: Islamic supremacists and jihadis routinely traffic in intimidation. That’s based on a Qur’anic command: “And prepare against them whatever you are able of power and of steeds of war by which you may strike terror in the enemy of Allah and your enemy and others besides them whom you do not know, whom Allah knows” (Qur’an 8:60). When they practice this intimidation, they generally find Westerners — especially Christian leaders — unwilling and unable to do anything in response but submit to...

    It’s not just Donald Trump himself who can spark controversy. A McKinney homeowner learned even campaign signs for the Republican nominee can turn a quiet neighborhood into a political hotbed. The homeowner said she never planned for her yard to look like the way it does with giant Trump signs even on her roof. She says she started with a couple of small lawn signs, but after repeated vandalism, this was her answer. When you post giant signs outside your home, you can’t expect everyone to like them. “Go home. We’re building a wall. And I’m going to help,” Kimberly...

    The Left, once the champion of civil liberties, is today orchestrating a coordinated campaign to bully Americans out of free speech. For nearly 40 years, Washington and much of the American public have held up disclosure and campaign finance laws as ideals, and the path to cleaner and freer elections. Yet, as Kimberley Strassel argues and details through first-hand accounts, both campaign finance are disclosure reform have been hijacked as weapons against free speech and free association, becoming one of the most powerful tools of those intent on silencing their political opposition.

    Evidently taking a signal from Roger Stone, who openly threatened to harass delegates to the GOP convention in Cleveland by publishing their hotel room numbers, Trump supporters in Colorado have been posting the names, addresses, and phone numbers of GOP officials in Colorado. They blame the officials for “rigging” the convention by creating a system last year for awarding delegates that Trump didn’t win. The fact that Trump had the same opportunity as every other candidate to win delegates at the congressional district-level conventions the state has just conducted means nothing to them. The fact that Ted Cruz conducted an...

He was last heard promising demonstrations at the convention if Trump doesn’t win the nomination which he calls “days of rage,” a name he apparently borrowed from the 1969...

    NYU’s pro-Trump students fear for their safety — and grades. They may be flooding caucus rooms across the country, but Donald Trump supporters at NYU keep their heads down, mouths shut and their correspondence secret. Lying in class about their political beliefs and keeping online conversations strictly private are typical precautions taken by The Donald’s badly outnumbered followers on campus. “Supporters generally try to keep it hidden from the rest of the student body,” said junior Dylan Perera, 22. “They’re afraid of losing friends, being ridiculed in class, getting worse grades and are even afraid of being assaulted and physically...

Emory president James Wagner then legitimized the complaints, describing words such as “Vote Trump” and “Build the wall” — chalked on cement — as “perceived intimidation.” Over the weekend, students involved in Emory’s Young Americans for Liberty chapter responded to the wailing and gnashing of teeth by the $59,444-per-year private school’s social justice warriors with a new, bigger, better political message in support of Trump, reports Inside Higher...

But this shadowy fixture of the Clinton machine was everywhere in the 1990s — including war-torn Bosnia, where he became the subject of a State Department investigation after he represented himself as an agent of the U.S. government and took cash from a genocidal warlord.

The last names of the students identified by the posters were blurred before Reason received them.According to the source, a group of approximately 10 student-activists...

    The explosion of hatred and threats against a family owned Indiana pizza restaurant who said they wouldn't cater a gay wedding have forced them to go into hiding and they may leave town permanently. A northern Indiana pizza shop that came under fire after its owners said their religious beliefs wouldn't allow them to cater a gay wedding is closed indefinitely, and its operators say they've gone into hiding. Memories Pizza in Walkerton faced criticism this week after co-owner Crystal O'Connor expressed support for a new Indiana religious objections law. The Facebook and Yelp pages for the restaurant about 20...

    A divorce lawyer for U.S. Rep. Alan Grayson’s wife says the congressman is trying to intimidate him.

The email was an attempt to intimidate him and influence his counsel of Grayson’s wife, Lolita, Longwell said in the filing, which asks for a protective order prohibiting Grayson from “engaging in abusive behavior.” …

    The letter below from Rep. Raúl M. Grijalva of Arizona speaks to the worst sort of witch hunt tactics that we’ve seen yet. I suspect that pulling on these threads will backfire on Grijalva, as this will motivate a lot of people to join the fight against this sort of “climate McCarthyism” The letter is reproduced in full below, with the original PDF also available. It’s like he’s got Mann’s #kochmachine delusions ideas.

    They have the heft of an ax, a blade nearly as long as a sword, and the intimidation power to make the hair stand up on the back of your neck. Cheap and easily bought, machetes in America have commonly been reserved for underbrush and sugar-cane cutting. But now, in a spreading trend that so far has drawn little national attention, criminals are using machetes as weapons, striking fear in cities and towns across the country. Witness these recent incidents: In the heartland Indiana city of Evansville in February, a robber pulled a machete on a convenience-store cashier, who put...
