    The Muslim college student who lied to cops about getting attacked on the subway by drunken Trump supporters took a plea deal on Friday. Yasmin Seweid, 19, copped to falsely reporting an incident and disorderly conduct for the bogus claim. Seweid, of New Hyde Park, L.I., said hate-filled white men harassed her and tried to snatch the hijab off her head during an encounter on the No. 6 train on Dec. 1. Seweid previously admitted she wasted police resources to cover up for her missed curfew. She must go through six months of counseling and complete three days of community...
  • TRUMP AND BLACKS: Heard it on Rush Just Now

    02/22/2019 11:04:03 AM PST · by DIRTYSECRET · 33 replies
    Kamala Harris and Pocahantas are calling for reparations. A caller claims it's just to keep them in line because they're worried Trump could be making inroads into the black vote. My solution: One Presidential debate dealing with just the issue of racism. Leave out 'other' races. A panel of 4 moderators, all black. Perhaps one 'hispanic'(Juan Williams). Trump demands it and the public will be with him to the point where the MSM will be unable to define the narrative beforehand or change the format.

    RICHMOND, Va. -- House Republicans announced on the floor Friday that they plan to invite the two women accusing Lt. Governor Justin Fairfax of sexual assault to speak with them. Del. Rob Bell (R-District 58) said on the floor that the Court of Justice Committee will be scheduling a meeting and plan to invite Dr. Vanessa Tyson and Meredith Watson to testify. Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax will also be invited to speak. It didn't take long for one of the accusers to respond and accept the invitation. Meredith Watson is gratified that the Virginia General Assembly has announced their intention...
  • Jussie Smollett Insisted Brett Kavanaugh Did Not Deserve Presumption of Innocence

    With the arrest Thursday morning of Empire star Jussie Smollett, the actor’s defense team put out a statement celebrating the fact that he was afforded the “presumption of innocence” like any other citizen. But last, year Smollett himself insisted that Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh was guilty until proven innocent. Jussie Smollett turned himself in early on Thursday morning, and the Chicago Police processed him into the system. Concurrent with his arrest, the actor’s team put out a statement reasserting Smollett’s “presumption of innocence” and slamming the Chicago Police for “leaking” information about the investigation to the press. “Like any...

    From the very first day of the 2020 presidential race, when Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts blamed “generations of discrimination” for black families earning far less than white households, Democratic hopefuls have broadly emphasized racial justice and closing the wealth gap in their policy platforms. But in recent weeks, some candidates have started embracing specific goals and overtly race-conscious legislation that even the most left-wing elected officials stayed away from in recent years. Last week, Senator Kamala Harris of California agreed with a radio host’s recent suggestion that government reparations for black Americans were necessary to address the legacies of...

    Last week, there was the pitiful scene of Gov. Andrew Cuomo of New York begging President Trump to restore a tax provision which unfairly benefitted New Yorkers. It seems that many high-income New Yorkers have been moving their tax homes to Florida, undermining the New York tax base. Those who live in New York City may be paying state and local income tax rates, in addition to the federal tax, of over 12 percent, giving some an overall tax burden of approximately 50 percent. Florida imposes no state and local income taxes in addition to the federal income tax —...

    As the nation continues to try to sort out all of the Virginia Democratic Party blackface stories, plenty of questions remain. They involve not only the Governor but the Attorney General and others as well. Fear not, citizens. We’re finally getting some definitive answers as Louis Farrakhan’s Nation of Islam Research Group (NOIRG) has decided to weigh in on the subject and clear up any confusion. So why are we still dealing with this phenomenon? Who is at the heart of the problem? Racist southern whites? The Illuminati? Nope. It’s the Jews, of course
  • Richmond marchers demand Governor Northam’s resignation

    RICHMOND, Va. — A group of people gathered at Monroe Park in Richmond on Monday to participate in the "March of Reckoning," a protest that demanded the resignation of Virginia Governor Ralph Northam. Marchers carried signs -- advocating a variety of topics -- from the VCU Campus to Capitol Square. Northam has insisted he had no plans to resign following his blackface yearbook photo scandal which made international headlines earlier this month. "March of Reckoning" participants said they would not take no for an answer. "As we know nationwide many folks have been pushing for Northam's resignation as well," organizer...

    It’s just fine that Elizabeth Warren apologized to the Cherokees for falsely claiming to be one of them. It might be helpful if she also apologizes to the people of Massachusetts. She could have done it Saturday when she made her presidential campaign official, but she didn’t. Instead she reworked and expanded her attack on wealthy Americans who, she said, are not paying their fair share. Massachusetts is not Virginia where Gov. Ralph Northam, Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax and Attorney General Mark Herring, all Democrats, are all caught up in scandals of black face and sexual- harassment charges

    A federal court gave final approval Thursday to the redrawn Virginia House of Delegates map that a court-appointed expert created to resolve the state’s long-running racial gerrymandering case. In a 2-1 opinion, judges for the Richmond-based Eastern District of Virginia ordered the state to adopt the map created by University of California-Irvine political science professor Bernard Grofman. The map could boost Democrats’ chances of taking control of the House later this year by tilting six GOP-held districts toward Democrats and imperiling the re-election campaigns of two top Republicans. Republicans had called Grofman’s map “legally indefensible,” saying it “attempts to give...

    Olympia is buzzing this week after it was learned that one of Gov. Jay Inslee's appointees to the Housing Finance Commission 'omitted' (some say lied) on his application, failing to list a 2005 domestic violence conviction that gave him a year in jail. Noe Castillo Jr. was appointed to the commission last November by Inslee, but had to wait til now to be officially confirmed by the Senate Housing Stability and Affordabability Committee before it became official. According to Senate Republicans, Castillo Jr. did list a 2002 Assault -4- charge on his application, but omitted a 2005 domestic violence conviction....

    Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel doesn’t agree with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi that if President Trump can declare a national emergency to bypass Congress in order to secure funding for his long-promised border wall, a Democratic president can do the same for guns. “The one thing you don’t want to mimic … their politics,” Emanuel said during a guest appearance Friday on HBO’s’ Real Time with Bill Maher. “He [Trump] wants you on certain cases to actually mimic what he’s doing because then there’s a difference of nothing. That’s not where you want to go against him.” The conversation quickly moved...

    The Democrats swept to power in Congress by campaigning in a way that has been successful for Democrats for generations. “Republicans will take away your health care,” they said, after having focus-grouped it. Now we are preparing for a 2020 campaign in which Donald Trump and Republicans can as easily advertise to the public: “Democrats will take away cows, and your car.” What happened to Democrats? Back in November, it looked like Nancy Pelosi and the Democratic House caucus had found the perfect plan for their party in the era of Trump: Avoid talking about impeachment and stick to simple...

    Despite the circumstances, Bill Cosby said his time in prison is an "amazing experience," his press spokesman Andrew Wyatt said in a TV interview. Wait, really? "Yeah, he used the term amazing experience," Wyatt said. Wyatt's interview with WCAU in Philadelphia provides new details of Cosby's time behind bars at SCI Phoenix, the prison outside Philadelphia. Cosby was sentenced in September to three to 10 years in prison for drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand at his home in 2004. The case came after dozens of women came forward with accusations that Cosby had drugged and assaulted them in similar...

    The woman who accused Virginia Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax of sexually assaulting her in Boston 15 years ago says she will now share her allegations with the local district attorney — after the politician threatened to pursue her for filing a “false criminal complaint.” Suffolk DA Rachael Rollins said earlier Wednesday that she’d reached out to lawyers representing accuser Vanessa Tyson about her allegation that Fairfax forced her to perform oral sex on him during the 2004 Democratic National Convention in Boston. In a response to the Boston Globe, Fairfax’s spokeswoman reiterated his denial and said he’d cooperate with an...

    Presidential candidates Sen. Kamala Harris and Julian Castro were among prominent Democrats calling on Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam to resign Friday night over a photograph of him in a racist costume. Ms. Harris, California Democrat, tweeted, “Leaders are called to a higher standard, and the stain of racism should have no place in the halls of government. The Governor of Virginia should step aside so the public can heal and move forward together.” Mr. Castro, mayor of San Antonio, Texas, said it “doesn’t matter if he is a Republican or a Democrat.”

    Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam (D) announced Tuesday that since he took office, voting rights have been restored to more than 10,000 residents previously convicted of felony charges. The announcement comes as Northam has faced calls from prominent Democratic politicians in Virginia and elsewhere to resign after he admitted he wore blackface to a dance party during college. “I believe in second chances and making our Commonwealth more open and accessible to all,” Northam said in a statement released by his office. "Virginians who have repaid their debts should be able to return to society, get a good job, and participate...

    That blackface/KKK photo on Governor Northam's yearbook page won't be a problem for Virginia's black leaders as long as he meets their demands.  The audacious "I am not going anywhere" Northam is wheeling and dealing with the race-baiters here in Virginia to save the Democratic Party and his own "white privileged" skin.  Forget post-birth abortions.  The only way the little ones will have a chance in Virginia with Democrats in charge is if they are allowed to vote. With alleged rapist Lt..Gov Fairfax out of the running, the NAACP, black clergy, and various black legislators in Virginia are stuck with Northam, and...

    Meredith Watson, who has also accused Virginia Lt. Gov.

Monday, the [New York] Times reported Watson had told friends in the past that she was raped by Corey Maggette and that [Duke university] officials did not pursue the claim despite Watson allegedly reporting the incident to a dean at the university. Maggette, a Los Angeles Clippers analyst for Fox Sports West, did not appear in an originally planned broadcast on Monday. It was announced on...

    Four staffers to Virginia Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax have quit in the wake of allegations of sexual assault and rape made against him days ago. Two of the three employees on Fairfax's state payroll and two employees working for his political action committee (PAC) have departed. As a part-time lieutenant governor, Fairfax keeps a small team of aides working on his behalf in Richmond. "The Lt. Governor appreciates the amazing service of his former staff members. Their work and dedication was incredible. He certainly wishes them well and appreciates their service to the Commonwealth of Virginia," said his political spokeswoman,...
