    This should put the “Trump is in the KKK”, while living in New York City and a racist argument (yeah right…sarcasm off) to bed.   Shaking my head in disgust at how desperate and dishonest the media can be to its audience.  Remember prior to Trump running for President both parties liked him for over 30 years.

    Let's go to the tape... According to Hillary and her surrogates, Trump is a horrible racist. Hes a bigot, he hates pretty much everybody and, if he wasnt running for President, hed probably be riding around the deep south wearing a sheet. Hes just that awful. Of course, no one ever said any of this during the last 40 years - over the course of which Trump was a very public figure. Its amazing that someone could be so famous, and yet no one, anywhere, ever mentioned his rampant bigotry. Like so many others, Trumps supposed racism only came to...

    Washington (CNN)-The Rev. Jesse Jackson endorsed Hillary Clinton on Saturday, continuing a recent string of high-profile endorsements for the presumptive Democratic nominee. Jackson, speaking in Chicago, said he trusts that Clinton will look out for the interests of marginalized communities including refugees, immigrants and the poor. "We trust her to work on health care, to fight for the poor ... for the willingness to fight for civil rights," Jackson said. Jackson, who unsuccessfully sought the Democratic nomination for president in 1984 and 1988, endorsed Clinton at the site of a memorial recognizing the hundreds of children killed in the city...

    If Carly Fiorina could be shook down by Jesse Jackson how likely is it that shell be able to stand up to Iran, a country she once did business with in defiance of the sanctions? Fiorina has a Jesse Jackson problem. The disgrace former HP CEO executive repeatedly praised the disgraced reverend throughout her career. The American Spectator laid out some of the ties. In a 2003 speech, Fiorina said, in the past 40 years, there are very few people who have used their talent along lines of excellence to achieve more things for more people in more places than...

Fiorina served as the economic adviser to McCain, who supported the $700 billion TARP bailout, the $25 billion auto bailout, a $300 billion mortgage bailout, and the first $85 billion AIG bailout.), now comes the revelation of that she has had a long political love affair with Jesse Jackson.

    Though Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) recently praised Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel (D) for making Chicago the friendliest city for immigrants, especially illegal immigrants, pro-amnesty advocates and progressives are lining up beyond his opponent, Jesus Chuy Garcia, who is in a dead heat with Emanuel in the mayoral runoff. (SNIP) He told targeted Democrats in tough re-election fights that he wanted them to vote for this anti-immigrant bill, Gutierrez said then. Thats a fact, an irrefutable fact. So its nice that Rahm Emanuel the candidate is for the DREAM Act kids now, but actions speak louder than words.

The San Gabriel Valley Tribune has more about the rally, which was also held in honor of another young life that was more recently lost: Hundreds gathered Thursday night for a rally...

    The Daily Caller asked Florida Republican Rep. Allen West on Capitol Hill if its appropriate for Rev. Jesse Jackson and Rep. Al Sharpton to publicly protest the Trayvon Martin case. I dont think anyone should be using this tragedy to push an ideological agenda, to include the anti-gun lobby, West told TheDC. Some civil rights leaders, such as Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson, have been criticized by conservatives for politicizing the case. His family should be outraged at the fact that theyre using this child as the bait to inflame racial passions, Rev. C.L. Bryant, a former NAACP leader told...

Jackson also offered a frank assessment of Gov. Rick Snyders dealings with the Motor City financial crisis. You cant separate the largest organ in your body from who you are, he said about the states relationship with the city. Detroit doesnt have a problem, Michigan has a problem. Why is Detroit in crisis? We bailed out the automotive industry but the city has not been...

    Atlas Shrugged Part I hit movie theaters this weekend. While entertaining and provocative, there were times when the film seemed a bit preachy, and the characters a tad exaggerated. In particular, there's a scene where steel magnate Hank Rearden is engaging a government bureaucrat from the State Science Institute. Rearden has developed a new metal, lighter and tougher than steel, which has tremendous applications. Rather than congratulate him, the G-man is there to deliver a reprimand for overproduction. Flabbergasted, Rearden asks a simple question. "Is Rearden Metel good or not?" The question is irrelevent. If Rearden Metal is not good,...
