    Former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg has successfully blocked video from a controversial talk he gave at the Aspen Institute last week from being posted online. At the Institute’s Feb. 5 event, the pro-gun control multi-billionaire suggested keeping guns out of the hands of young, male minorities. Ninety-five percent of murders are attributed to the group, said Bloomberg, who has spend tens of millions of dollars on various gun control initiatives, including the group Everytown for Gun Safety. “These kids think they’re going to get killed anyway because all their friends are getting killed,” Bloomberg said at the summit....

    While every single 2020 Democratic presidential candidate avidly supports a woman’s “right” to abortion, it seems some are considerably more comfortable with calling the procedure what it is: killing a child. Old sins cast especially long shadows when you run for president, as former New York Mayor and latecomer to the 2020 Democratic primary race, Michael Bloomberg has discovered, and an incident in the 90’s in which he rather crassly referred to abortion is making headlines once more. According to The New York Times, the former New York City Mayor was recently forced to address the heartless, decades-old statements made...

    Advocate Aurora Health Care is accelerating its initiative for hiring diverse contractors on major construction projects and set a goal of 25% for a showcase $228 million campus in Mount Pleasant. The diversity program builds on goals Milwaukee-based Aurora Health Care previously instituted for spending 15% of construction costs with contractors owned by minorities, women, veterans and other groups, said Daryl Hodnett, Advocate Aurora’s director of supplier diversity and inclusion. “This is an important part of how you help grow and build and develop underserved communities,” Hodnett said. “We’re helping make healthier communities economically — helping create jobs and economic...

    Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- The American economy is in turmoil but the Obama administration sent a $50 million check yesterday to the United Nations Population Fund. That's the pro-abortion group that has been accused of supporting and working in concert with Chinese family planning officials.There, the Chinese population control program has relied on forced abortions, involuntary sterilizations and other human rights abuses to enforce its rule that most couples may have no more than one child.The Bush administration had withheld the funds because of the UNFPA-China population control program ties, but Obama signed a bill reversing those limits and...
  • One month to go until recreational weed becomes legal in Illinois. Here’s what you need to know.

    When the most popular medical marijuana dispensary in Chicago begins selling recreational pot on New Year’s Day, it will operate like a busy restaurant. Dispensary 33 plans to take names from those in line and page customers by phone when they can get in. The North Side cannabis shop will take that unusual step due to the huge crowds expected when weed sales become legal under state law at 6 a.m. Jan. 1, 2020. The celebration will be similar to the unofficial pot holiday of April 20, or 4/20, when a Dispensary 33 street fest and special deals this year...

    Boston’s city council is getting a new look: its first female majority and a more racially diverse lineup than ever before. Voters on Tuesday elected the council’s first Latina. They also voted in a slate of female candidates. Starting in January, the 13-member council will have eight women. Seven councilors will be minorities, the council’s most ever. Asian American city councilor Michelle Wu says it’s the “new face” of Boston politics. Voters also rejected a ballot question to change the name of Dudley Square in historically black Roxbury to Nubian Square. SNIP The council was a white male bastion for...

    Districts with higher minority populations and lower incomes saw longer wait times to vote in the 2018 midterm elections, according to a study released Monday. The study from the Bipartisan Policy Center and MIT analyzed data from polling places across the country and found the percentage of voters who waited 30 minutes or longer in line doubled to 6 percent since the last midterm election in 2014. The study indicated that districts with 90 percent or more non-white voters had an increased average wait time of 32.4 minutes, compared to precincts with 10 percent or less non-white voters, which saw...

    The Daily Signal ^ | October 24, 2019 | Arthur Milikh
    Strange days, indeed, when America’s free press opposes free speech. “Free speech is killing us,” headlined a New York Times op-ed. Its author, New Yorker staff writer Andrew Marantz, argued that “hate speech” leads to violence. Worse, he claims it can cause totalitarianism and even genocide. To avoid this fate, Marantz says we must rethink the First Amendment, which would include government and private companies striving to limit “hate speech.” He agrees with a former American Civil Liberties Union official that one day in the not-so-distant future, legal “protection of hate speech” will “seem ridiculous in retrospect.” Some governments have...

    United States President Trump may be embattled at home, where he faces an impeachment inquiry and high-stakes diplomatic crises, but right-wing activists are planning a pro-Trump rally this week anyway – in Pretoria. Willie Jordaan, the attorney who leads the Patriots for Minorities movement in South Africa, announced his plans on Monday to host a Trump 2020 support rally at the U.S. Embassy building this Thursday morning. Jordaan condemned the “ridiculous and unfounded” impeachment process in the politically tense U.S. and praised Trump for “keeping an eye on South Africa.” “We would like to thank you for your continued support...

    Family Research Council ^ | October 10, 2019 | Tony Perkins and FRC senior writers
    For a profile in courage, consider a very significant move by the Trump administration this week in defense of Muslims. Just days before taking up new trade talks with China, the administration announced a dramatic stand in defense of up to 2 million Chinese Muslims in concentration camps and against companies that are using their technology to spy on the Chinese in their daily lives. Not that I expect the media to give the president and his administration points for defending the religious liberty of people around the world, but when you consider that the NBA couldn't find the character...

    Last week the Democrats were touting the special election in North Carolina’s 9th District as the first major contest of the 2020 cycle, and the polls indicated that Democrat Dan McCready might win what should be a pretty safe GOP seat. By Wednesday morning, after Republican Dan Bishop had won, their focus had shifted and much commentary was devoted to his “thin margin of victory.” Little notice was taken of certain voting patterns that should frighten the Democrats. Specifically, McCready did far worse than expected in every county but one, and many of those counties are dominated by minority voters....

    Via the Free Beacon, there’s some agita online today about Abrams floating another hair-raising theory of corruption at the polls after insisting without evidence for months that she’s the rightfully elected governor of Georgia. Although, interestingly, she seems to be backing off that last claim now — somewhat, allowing last night that “I don’t know that empirically I would have won” last year.Does that mean the rest of the party is now free to punt on the burning question of who the “real” governor is, or do racial politics require them to hug the “Stacey won” talking point tight...

    NEW YORK - As the Metropolitan Transportation Authority and New York City Police Department look to crack down on fare beating, new police numbers reportedly show minorities make up the bulk of people stopped for jumping the subway turnstiles. According to the Daily News, 86 percent of the nearly 700 people arrested from April through June were Black or Latino. Blacks and Latinos also made up 71 percent of those hit with a summons for fare evasion over that same period. The News says NYPD numbers over the past few years show more people of color have been stopped for...

    Helen Hudson will tell you what the 15th Ward was like when she was a girl. In the 1950s and early ’60s, the Syracuse neighborhood was home to thousands of predominantly black residents who had settled in the growing upstate New York city during and after the Great Migration. Those who remember it, like Hudson, describe it as thriving, self-sufficient community they were proud to call home. “Oh my god, the things we had,” she said recently, her voice softening with the distinct twang of nostalgia. “We had two bowling alleys. We had meat markets.” Charlie Pierce-El will tell you...

    WASHINGTON – U.S. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, inspired by the plan to tear down the elevated portion of Interstate 81 in Syracuse, wants to rewrite federal rules for hiring workers on such big infrastructure projects. If she succeeds, at least half of the workers hired for the $2 billion project for a new I-81 would have to come from Syracuse. Hiring priority would be given to people who face barriers to employment, including veterans, ex-offenders and the chronically unemployed. At least a third of contracts and subcontracts would go to small businesses, and at least 30 percent of the contracts would...

    If you want to know another reason why the Democrat Left is desperately trying to paint POTUS Donald Trump and Republicans in general as blatant racists and bigots, the answer lies in data released by the Labor Department this week. According to the Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA), ‘the 99 percent’ have gotten wage increases since the president took office in January 2017 and Republicans passed a massive tax reform bill 11 months later. Not only that but thanks to a vibrate economy and substantial jobs growth that led to what many believe is a fully-employed labor force, Americans are...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Top Republicans are hunting district-by-district for just the right candidates — women and minorities in many cases — to help them recapture the House six months after a political tidal wave swept Democrats into control of the most diverse majority in history. Among the recruits are a Republican woman in the Oklahoma state Senate and a black political novice from Houston with Iraq combat experience and three Ivy League degrees on his resume. They are part of the GOP drive to gain at least 18 seats in the 2020 elections to win the majority — historically a...

That’s the S.O.S. message the Michigan Rep. Tweeted out on Saturday.
