  • 9 White Celebs, World Leaders Whose Families Owned Slaves

    08/17/2017 3:21:11 PM PDT · by KeyLargo · 36 replies
    9 White Celebs, World Leaders Whose Families Owned Slaves Anderson Cooper A rule of thumb is: where there is old money, you will find some connection to slavery. So of course it wasn’t hard to determine that Anderson Cooper was connected, in a familial way, to slavery. His bloodline is tied to the Vanderbilts, one of the richest families in American history. Cooper’s great-great-grandfather, Cornelius Vanderbilt – who was also Cooper’s cousin through inbreeding – was a tycoon who built his wealth from shipping and railroads. He also owned plantations: one in particular was in Georgetown, S.C., where Michelle Robinson...

    CNN's Wolf Blitzer was anchoring the network's breaking news coverage Thursday afternoon on the possible radical Islamic terror attack in Barcelona, Spain when he made the inartful and arguably pathetic assertion that the truck attack could be "a copycat" of the neo-Nazi car attack on Saturday in Charlottesville, Virginia.

    It is a sad truth of our current societal situation that those on the left wing of the political spectrum no longer possess the ability to argue political issues based on anything resembling facts or logic. I used to say that they no longer desire to do so, but it has become abundantly clear over the last decade that progressives simply no longer have the ability. The left abandoned any effort to really debate issues at the outset of the Bill Clinton presidency, as the Clintons brought their Saul Alinsky rules for radicals tactics to the White House. Those rules...

    Has the media ever so deliberately and consistently misinterpreted what a president said? It certainly seems as if the media finally found its proof that President Trump is a racist. ABC News’ coverage was all too typical:

    In followup to my piece from earlier this morning, I want to focus very specifically on the one question - which was really an accusation - that reporters kept shouting at President Trump during his presser yesterday. Whenever Trump pointed out that the alt-left bore some responsibility for what happened in Charlottesville, reporters demanded to know: “Are you putting the alt-left on the same moral plane as the alt-right?” The president replied that he wasn’t looking to put anyone on any moral plane. He was simply stating an obvious truth about what happened in Charlottesville.

    Apparently, as long as violent leftists label their victims “fascists,” they are free to set fires, smash windows and beat civilians bloody. No police officer will stop them. They have carte blanche to physically assault anyone they disapprove of, including Charles Murray, Heather Mac Donald, Ben Shapiro, me, and Milo Yiannopoulos, as well as anyone who wanted to hear us speak. Even far-left liberals like Evergreen State professor Bret Weinstein will be stripped of police protection solely because the mob called him a “racist.” If the liberal shock troops deem local Republicans “Nazis” — because some of them support the...

    Just a little perspective on the current situation, and then I’ll shut up for the day: - The current effort by the fake media/Democrat Party ministry of disinformation to tar President Trump as a racist and run him out of office is just a repeat of the playbook they used against Ronald Reagan in 1981-84. Same tactics, same false claims, same inflammatory protests and rhetoric. We have, in other words, seen this movie before. - We should all remember that the ending to that movie in 1984 was the single greatest landslide re-election of any sitting president in the history...

    Rutherford Institute founder responds to rally violence By Courteney Stuart Posted: Tue 7:01 PM, Aug 15, 2017 CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (NEWSPLEX) -- In the days since the violence of the Aug. 12 Unite the Right rally, anger has mounted, some of it directed at the civil rights organizations that represented rally organizer Jason Kessler in his legal fight to keep the rally in Emancipation Park. The Rutherford Institute founder John Whitehead said he doesn't regret taking the case and notes that it's about defending the First Amendment, not supporting the mission of the rally. "If you're going to believe in the...

    Let’s start by stipulating this: Everything President Trump said in his press conference yesterday about Saturday’s events in Charlottesville was 100% true. That is why he was so viciously assailed by every fake reporter in the fake national news media following that press conference. Wait, what? – Yes, that’s how it works with the fake news media these days. You have a dishonest class of people – fake journalists at the nation’s major media outlets – who are coordinating with another dishonest class of people – progressive Democrats – to brainwash the public into believing a false narrative that demands...

    Last week the respected left-liberal magazine The Nation published an explosive article that details in great depth the findings of a new report — authored in large part by former U.S. intelligence officers — which claims to present forensic evidence that the Democratic National Committee was not hacked by the Russians in July 2016. Instead, the report alleges, the DNC suffered an insider leak, conducted in the Eastern time zone of the United States by someone with physical access to a DNC computer. This report also claims there is no apparent evidence that the hacker known as Guccifer 2.0 —...

    RUSH: Yesterday on the program I happened to mention that a New York Times writer, Sheryl Gay Stolberg must not have gotten the memo because she sent out a couple of tweets acknowledging that the hate in Charlottesville was equally distributed. That there was as much hate on the left and violence on the left as there was on the so-called right here. She admitted that the Antifa — by the way, who is this Antifa? They keep naming this. All this is Occupy Wall Street. All this is is Black Lives Matter. There’s nothing new here. It’s not a...

    Premiums for the most popular health insurance plans would shoot up 20 percent next year, and federal budget deficits would increase by $194 billion in the coming decade if President Trump carries out his threat to end certain subsidies paid to insurance companies for the benefit of low-income people, the Congressional Budget Office said Tuesday. The subsidies reimburse insurers for reducing deductibles, co-payments and other out-of-pocket costs that low-income people pay when they visit doctors, fill prescriptions or receive care in hospitals. Even before efforts to repeal the Affordable Care Act collapsed in the Senate last month, Mr. Trump began...

    Well, maybe the Crazy Little Fat Guy in North Korea isn’t quite so crazy after all. – Shortly after Defense Secretary General James Mattis warned that the firing of North Korean missiles in the direction of any U.S. state or territory would be an act of war and treated by the U.S. with an overwhelming response, the Crazy Little Fat Guy appearsto have backed down. The Crazy Little Fat Guy stated that he has decided not to launch the threatened four nuclear-armed missiles at Guam, a U.S. territory, saying he would “wait a little longer.” Mr. Crazy went on to...

    In Sunday’s New York Times, Kristen Ghodsee paints a glowing picture of women’s lives in the former Soviet Union. From full voting rights in 1917, liberalized divorce laws, high labor force participation – and yes, reportedly better sex – life was supposedly much better for women. Ghodsee writes, “Although the Communists never fully reformed domestic patriarchy, Communist women enjoyed a degree of self-sufficiency that few Western women could have imagined.” Of course, full voting rights don’t count for very much when there is always only one candidate allowed on the ballot. But there is a more fundamental problem with Ghodsee’s...

    The Justice Department announced late Saturday that it was sending in the feds to conduct an investigation into potential civil rights violations amid all the violence that took place in Charlottesville, earlier that day. The big question is, whose civil rights were violated? Let’s review the events of the day: You had a properly permitted demonstration by a bunch of white supremacist dimwits that took place without violence; - Until, that is, those dimwits were set upon by a bunch of Antifa and Black Lives Matters agitators who were not properly permitted; - Violent clashes took place when law enforcement...

    Edith Rivera loved her life in Hampton, Iowa, but for many undocumented immigrants like her, this summer has been a season of fear or flight. It was quitting time. Edith Rivera took one last lunch order, dropped off a basket of tortilla chips and set off from work, heading out to the farm roads where other immigrants feared to drive. Like them, Ms. Rivera, 33, had no legal status in the country where she had lived for 18 years. She had no driver’s license, apart from the long-expired North Carolina identification she held safe, like a talisman, in her wallet....

    I wish I could say that itÂ’s a shock that someone died in Charlottesville, but IÂ’ve been predicting just this sort of thing in radio appearances for months. The liberal media is dying to blame it all on Donald Trump, but it should look in the mirror. To begin with, the liberal media is almost entirely responsible for growing the Alt-Right merger of hate groups and internet trolls. Most people are well aware of the stifling political correctness that reached an apex under Barack Obama. People are sick and tired of being attacked and scolded by the humorless left-wing thought...

    What happened in Charlottesville, VA on Saturday should surprise no one. This was an inevitable outcome of this country’s lack of anything resembling an independent national news media. If anything, it’s surprising it took this long for such a tragedy to happen. For two years now, leftist agitators funded by George Soros-supported groups have been violently assaulting supporters of Donald Trump without a single word of objection or condemnation from any leader of the Democratic Party. Not a word. Worse, none of these “leaders” have been asked by anyone with any major national news outlet why they stand silently by...
