  • “Myth” Busted? New Jersey AG Indicts Four Over “Hundreds” Of Fraudulent Mail-In Ballots

    And here I thought we had it on the highest authority that mail-in balloting didn’t have more risk for fraud and manipulation. Don’t tell that to New Jersey Attorney General Gurbir Grewal, who just indicted four men for voter fraud connected to hundreds of fraudulent mail-in ballots. Two of suspects are city council members in Paterson, in fact: Attorney General Gurbir S. Grewal announced voting fraud charges against 1st Ward Councilman Michael Jackson, 3rd Ward Council-Elect Alex Mendez and two other men, weeks after the May 12 local election in which the Passaic County Board of Elections decided not...

    Hi everyone. I need help. I'm trying to find the evidentiary support for the statement made by many commentators and the president that minorities want more police in their neighborhoods. The search engines are leading me to everything else. Does anyone have a couple of good links on that? Thank you.

    City Councilor Andrea Campbell and minority police officer advocates are calling for an end to internal BPD tests they say are discriminatory, while discouraging calls of “defunding” police. The call for change comes as minority officers struggle for internal reforms.

    Mike Tomlin likes the discussion around an incentivized minority hiring process in the NFL. On "Coffee with Cal," hosted by Kentucky men's basketball coach John Calipari, on Monday morning, the Pittsburgh Steelers head coach said he likes the idea of a change to the Rooney Rule that rewards teams for hiring minority candidates.

    New York Post ^ | May 16, 2020 | By Zach Braziller
    The new proposed addition to the Rooney Rule, which would reward teams for hiring minority candidates, raised a lot of eyebrows around the league. It was one thing for teams to be required to interview minority candidates for head-coaching and general manager positions, but quite another to offer draft picks to teams based on who they employ. And one of the four minority head coaches in the NFL, the Chargers’ Anthony Lynn, isn’t in favor of it.
  • Coronavirus: Review to be launched into why ethnic minorities worst-hit by COVID-19

    A formal review is to be launched into why people from a black and minority ethnic background appear to be disproportionately affected by COVID-19. The move follows calls for the government to investigate the number of deaths of people from the BAME community and those working for the NHS, during the coronavirus pandemic. Sky News analysis found out of the 54 frontline health and social care workers in England and Wales that have died because of COVID-19, 70% of them were black or from an ethnic minority. Our analysis also found that four of the five health trusts in England...

    People of color make up many of the front-line workers designated as “essential” amid the pandemic — the grocery store clerks, bus drivers and hospital workers putting themselves at greater risk each day simply because they have to leave their homes to go to work. “Our residents are the front-line workers, and they actually have to keep going so society can keep moving,” said City Councilor Andrea Campbell, who represents Mattapan and part of Dorchester. “These are cops, firefighters, EMS, trash workers, public works employees, nurses, T workers. They’re exposing themselves every single day for the larger community while at...

    Audio of Mike Bloomberg's 2015 speech at the Aspen Institute has gone viral. In his talk, the former New York Mayor who's now running for the Democrat presidential nomination, says that "you can just Xerox (copy)" the description of the murderers and their victims (male, minorities, ages 16-25) and hand it over to the cops. As is always the case with Bloomberg, he had the video of the speech blocked. Sadly for him, however, there are people who have the audio recording."95 percent of your murders -- murderers and murder victims fit one M.O. You can just take the...

    SNIP Speaking before a crowd of 400 people at the Aspen Institute on February 5, 2015, Bloomberg said that to prevent violent crimes, police should seize guns from minorities. Bloomberg specifically noted that 95 percent of murders—both murderers and murder victims—in New York and “virtually every city” were committed by individuals fitting the same profile. “Male, minorities, 16 to 25,” he said. SNIP “95 percent of your murders—murderers and murder victims fit one M.O. You can just take the description. Xerox it and pass it out to all the cops. They are male, minorities, sixteen to twenty-five. That’s true in...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...
