    Famous civil rights leader Jesse Jackson has set his sights on Kroger after stores closed in a predominantly black neighborhood. He came to Cincinnati, where Kroger is headquartered, to call for a boycott. Jackson is calling for a boycott after three of Kroger's stores recently closed in Tennessee. About 100 people gathered to listen to Jackson at the shuttered Walnut Hills store. Dailey also said Kroger is providing a free shuttle service for Walnut Hills senior citizens to another Kroger store about a mile away. Kroger is also building a new store downtown which can serve many inner city residents.
  • Jack Cashill: “Incompetence Wasn’t The Problem in Broward County”…

    It doesn’t come as a surprise to find the most appropriate discussion headline behind the Parkland, Florida school shooting did not come from an MSM news article, but rather from a person who understands the origin of the issue. Writer Jack Cashill publishes an article in American Thinker today appropriately titled: “Incompetence Wasn’t The Problem in Broward County“. Mr. Cashill, a person adept at tracing complex issues to their truthful origin, has it entirely correct. Nothing about the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School was based on structural incompetence; the horrific event was an entirely predictable outcome of intentionally...

    Remember the story we told you yesterday about how black Olympian Shani Davis was angry that a coin flip decided that white Olympian Erin Hamlin would be the Team USA flag bearer in today’s opening ceremony? Well, the story got worse. Davis skipped the parade of athletes over the entirely fair process to decide a tie:

    A journalist claims that the Rev. Jesse Jackson and director John Singleton made inappropriate comments and advances toward her while she was doing her job. Danielle Young, writing for The Root, says that while she was working for a media company, Jackson delivered the keynote speech at the end of a meeting. After discussing the responsibilities of black journalists in his speech, according to Young, she and her colleagues lined up to have their picture taken with Jackson. “I walked toward Jackson, smiling, and he smiled back at me,” Young wrote. “His eyes scanned my entire body. All of a...

    (CNN) — Civil rights activist the Rev. Jesse Jackson said Friday that he has been diagnosed with Parkinson's disease. A neurological disorder with no cure, Parkinson's can cause tremors, stiffness and difficulty balancing, walking and coordinating movement. "My family and I began to notice changes about three years ago," Jackson wrote in a statement. "After a battery of tests, my physicians identified the issue as Parkinson's disease, a disease that bested my father." Jackson added that "recognition of the effects of this disease on me has been painful." He also said he sees his diagnosis as "a signal that I...

    The Rev. Jesse Jackson told fellow clergy this week that President Donald Trump “would not qualify to get into Jesus’ kingdom.” Jackson spoke Monday at the National Action Network’s “Ministers March for Justice.” During his speech, he equated the Electoral College with vestiges of racism and demanded an end to the system. In his speech to the ministers, Jackson, who also attacked Trump’s comments following last month’s violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, castigated Trump’s immigration policy. “Trump says you must be able to speak the language English, qualified and have a job skill. Jesus would not qualify to come in Trump’s...

    The 2017 regular-season is less than two weeks away and Colin Kaepernick remains out of work. Depending on who you ask, the reasons vary from "he's being blackballed by the league because he knelt during the national anthem last season" (as a form of protest against social injustice, it should be noted) to "he just hasn't played well enough the last few years." Rev. Jesse Jackson firmly falls into the former category. On Friday, he said during an appearance on "Real Time with Bill Maher" that NFL owners "have colluded" to keep Kaepernick from playing. "They have decided not to...

    Ultraliberal Hollywood and all of 'LIBERAL MEDIA' hate and are deathly afraid of Donald Trump It was Bob Dylan who put together the phrase, “... Money doesn’t talk, it SWEARS.” And that is about the first level up from the bottom-line reason behind most of the problems we have in the world today. At least, the reason for bulldozer-powerful LIES mowing down what is left of today’s rapidly disintegrating civilization. In 1984, I watched a disintegrating Democratic Party turn itself completely over to the dark side when Jesse Jackson introduced his ‘Rainbow Coalition’. The DNC at that point became the...

    Shunned by his Hollywood friends and activist pals, an increasingly isolated and paranoid Bill Cosby lives in constant fear of someone slipping something into his food or drink. During pre-trial hearings and jury selection in Pittsburgh, ahead of the June 5 start of his sexual assault trial in Philadelphia, the 79-year-old comedian refused to stay in local hotels because of perceived threats. Instead he woke up at 2:30 every morning to fly his private jet to the courthouse from his suburban Philly home. “He and his wife are afraid that if he stayed at a hotel, someone will find a...

    Taxpayers just learned that those who have worked in the U.S. Congress are at risk of becoming: a. bipolar; b. depressed and c. anguished. “Three J,” as he is known in Chicago street parlance, AKA former jail inmate and Illinois Congressman Jesse Jackson, Jr. claims to be suffering from all three. As a result, Jackson is collecting a whopping $138,400 from U.S. taxpayers each year; $100,000 in workman’s comp and another $38,400 in Social Security Disability, all because he is a victim of these afflictions. It is Joe Schoffstall of the Washington Free Beacon who revealed that the son of...

    In the end there will be only two types of Democrats: anti-Semites and cowards. Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam. The Democrats care about anti-Semitism. They care so much that they had a presidential candidate and convention speaker who led an anti-Semitic riot through a Jewish neighborhood. “If the Jews want to get it on, tell them to pin their yarmulkes back and come over to my house,” he had taunted his victims. He became a close presidential adviser whose endorsement is sought after by every Democrat...

    Chicago police clear officers of racial profiling in stop of U.S. Rep. Bobby Rush On Aug. 4, 2016, U.S. Rep. Bobby Rush was pulled over in Bronzeville. He was let go without a ticket being issued, but later filed a complaint with IPRA alleging racial profiling. This video contains body cam footage from one of the officers that Rush filed the complaint against. (Source: CPD) Chief spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said the department's Bureau of Internal Affairs found that the two Wentworth District officers acted properly because they had probable cause to make the stop. Earlier that day, officers at roll...

    Not long after President Donald Trump was sworn in, we happened to run into the Rev. Jesse Jackson on the street. He gave a thumbs-up to Trump’s inauguration speech but said the new commander in chief has much work to do in order to unify a nation riven by a divisive campaign. “The speech was full of hope and inclusion and he reached out to cities in a way they’ve not been reached out to for a long time,” he said. “But with that must come a target, a timetable and a budget.” Trump’s speech hit many of the populist...

    Sorry, Jesse. Wrong again. The “Reverend” Jesse Jackson is nothing if not pious and holy. He’s a veritable paragon of virtue, and we’re all supposed to pay close attention to his proclamations. So, he’s issued the following encyclical: “Secretary Clinton has not been legally accused, and either tried or convicted of anything. President Obama should follow President Ford’s example and offer a pre-emptive full pardon. It would be a monumental moral and political mistake to pursue the prosecution of Hillary Clinton.”

We need to move on. President Nixon wasn't convicted of a crime. He didn't apply for a pardon. (Ford) did it because he thought it would be best for the country.

      Among other things, it looks like the Chicago lobbying to save ShoreBank paid off. Earlier this month I discovered a letter sent by Windy City power player and big Democrat donor Lester McKeever, Jr., to Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner, which urged his intervention. "It is my hope," McKeever wrote, "and one shared by others who care deeply about its most vulnerable communities, that the ShoreBank recapitalization plan with investment coming from the U.S. Treasury will enable it to continue servicing its customers and fulfilling its mission." In a post today on ShoreBank's blog, online channel manager (whatever that...
