Washington Redskins doesn't affect us, doesn't mean diddly-squat. We don't care. So the Drive-Bys are not happy. The Sports Drive-Bys are not happy, and the sports Drive-Bys (I won't mention any names) are out there lecturing Native Americans on how they should care, and they're lecturing everybody else on how they should care. And you know what one of the latest approaches is? This is so telling. It is so... I can't remember when it was, but it's...

    New York Times ^ | May 23, 2016 | Editorial Board
    In 2004, Hugo Chávez and Fidel Castro launched the Bolivarian Alternative for the Peoples of Our Americas, a regional alliance of leftist leaders designed to subvert a hemispheric free trade agreement that the United States had been pushing for a decade. Today Latin America's leftist ramparts appear to be crumbling because of widespread corruption, a slowdown in China's economy and poor economic choices. For the most part, leaders failed to create diversified economies capable of withstanding slumps. The welfare and pension programs that kept voters loyal proved unsustainable. Leaders in Venezuela, Ecuador and Bolivia flouted democratic traditions by expanding or...

    s the left turning on its darling, Bernie Sanders? On Friday, Netroots titan Markos Moulitsas, namesake of the liberal Daily Kos, dropped a rhetorical bomb on the Bern, blaming the candidate for doing too little to denounce death threats received by the Nevada Democratic Party after Sanders’ state convention delegates complained they had received unfair treatment. “The problem isn't Bernie Sanders' supporters,” Moulitsas wrote. “It's Bernie Sanders himself … [He] refuses to forcefully and unambiguously reject that violence, instead rationalizing and explaining it away with a mix of grievances and outright conspiracy theory.” Actually, Sanders hasn’t lost much support among...

Maddow: This is a beautiful gun. Braver: So maybe you wouldn’t expect the woman wielding the Colt .45 pistol or the AR-15 rifle to be unabashedly left-leaning Rachel Maddow. Maddow: Like, I’m a real liberal, even on, like, gun safety and gun control issues. That said, I think that shooting is fun, and I think that shooting...

    Unlike the butchery that bookended it, it merited no presidential statements, no saturation television coverage. But what took place at 6101 Prentice Street on Aug. 21 may say more about the nature of gun violence in the United States than any of those far more famous rampages. It is a snapshot of a different sort of mass violence — one that erupts with such anesthetic regularity that it is rendered almost invisible, except to the mostly black victims, survivors and attackers (...) “Clearly, if it’s black-on-black, we don’t get the same attention because most people don’t identify with that.

    Not long ago the mainstream media were gleefully considering the prospect of a contested, drawn out Republican convention. Now that the Republican Party has begun to unify behind Donald Trump’s “presumptive nominee” status, however reluctantly, these same reporters continue to try to stoke tensions in the party, hoping that they can weaken the presumptive nominee. Contrast this with the media treatment given Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT), who is being encouraged to quickly concede the Democratic primary to Hillary Clinton and thereby unify the Democrat Party. Sanders has stated his plans, which are being treated as an inconvenient truth: that the...

    At least 10 percent of BBC employees should be Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual or Transsexual (LGBT), a government policy paper has said. The target is nearly twice that of broadcasting rival Channel 4, which, as a broadcaster tasked with promoting diversity, has a target of 6 percent. Most large employers report that between two and five percent of their workforce are LGBT, a figure thought to be roughly in line with the population at large, although the precise figure is difficult to assess as it relies on self-identification.

These types of portrayals can contribute to a misperception among some that Muslim women who don the headscarf may lack agency.

    Spanish Language Radio Stations | 11 May 2016 | Mene Mene Tekel Upharsin
    Spanish-language radio stations in the Austin area are spewing a lot of inflammatory rhetoric against the U.S. and Trump and playing songs that are very derogatory against those who oppose illegal immigration. It is worse than I have ever heard it before and it amounts to treason. Such would NEVER be allowed in Mexico and would lead to the arrest of the entire station staff and the business would be shut down.

    Charlie Rose and three of Barack Obama’s former speechwriters had a good laugh Monday night while joking about the president’s infamous, oft-repeated false promise that under Obamacare, “if you like your health care plan, you can keep your health care plan.” Obama said dozens of times in the run-up to the Affordable Care Act’s signing and enactment that no Americans who liked the insurance plan they had would lose it under the Affordable Care Act. In reality, millions of policies were canceled because of the law’s regulations, and Obama was forced to apologize to the American people. The infamous remark...

    resident Obama is a cronyism machine. No administration in our history has done more to punish its enemies and reward its friends. In fact, while engaging in rank identity politics - another Divider-Not-Uniter moment in seven-plus years full of them - the president himself said exactly this: “We’re gonna punish our enemies and we’re gonna reward our friends who stand with us on issues that are important to us.”Cronyism candor from the commander in chief. And this promise he has kept. On steroids.But three more of the latest examples are some unequal-protection-before-the-law fiats from the president’s Federal Communications Commission (FCC). Except...

    It is now old wisdom that Barack Obama created Trump—as in the idea of a national pushback to Obama’s out-of-the-mainstream agendas and the unconstitutional way in which he pursued them. Forgotten is the insulation that Obama has also provided for the excesses of Trump as a candidate and, especially, if he were to be president. Last week, in sober and judicious tones Obama all but warned Americans that they cannot seriously support Trump, who, he implied, is little more than a reality-TV conman. But such admonitions come from a president whose chief foreign policy advisor, a failed fiction writer and...

    America’s uranium industry has been absolutely devastated by Department of Energy decisions and political maneuvering by Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and individuals closely tied to her. ... in 1976, the uranium extraction industry employed 35,000 people. Today .. fewer than 500 people in this country are involved in it .. 20 percent of our electrical power is dependent on those 500 people, that’s every fifth light-bulb. We’re now producing enough uranium to power 4 or 5 of our nuclear reactors, that’s 94 dependent on foreign uranium. ... Since 2011, DOE has sold off roughly $1 billion of publicly-owned uranium...

    Radio screamer Mark Levin’s approach at selling his nonsense can be captured within the following quote: If you make people think they’re thinking, they’ll love you. If you really make them think, they’ll hate you. ~ Don Marquis Levin’s approach relies on gaslighting an audience into “thinking they’re thinking“. This was never more clear than today when Mark Levin pens an article calling candidate Donald Trump “A Globalist“, and then assembles a word salad of counter-intuitive arguments to prove a ridiculously false assertion.However, there is a profound benefit to seeing Mr. Levin completely remove the mask of his crony-constitutional...

    April 1989 archive Peter Jennings and Mike Wallace Agree Reporters First, Americans Second In a future war involving U.S. soldiers what would a TV reporter do if he learned the enemy troops with which he was traveling were about to launch a surprise attack on an American unit? That's just the question Harvard University professor Charles Ogletree Jr, as moderator of PBS' Ethics in America series, posed to ABC anchor Peter Jennings and 60 Minutes correspondent Mike Wallace. Both agreed getting ambush footage for the evening news would come before warning the U.S. troops. For the March 7 installment on...

    Confusion at Colorado College Posted: September 4, 20021:00 a.m. Eastern © 2002 WorldNetDaily.com On Sept. 12, the second day of the second year of America's war on terror, Colorado College will host a symposium titled: "September 11: One Year Later." The symposium may not yield much insight into the war, but it tells us all a great deal about the moral confusion that dominates this campus and, I suspect, hundreds of others. As the first speaker on the first day of the conference – the "keynote speaker" according to the college – Colorado College has selected Hanan Ashrawi, a longtime spokeswoman for...
