    Children as young as eight are terrorising a town in retaliation after an Aboriginal man was shot by police. Residents in Cowra, in central west New South Wales, are so terrified they are sleeping with weapons next to their beds. Dennis John 'DJ' Doolan was shot by police on September 28, prompting angry members of the Aboriginal community to chant 'black lives matter' until elders had to stop them rioting. The 32-year-old accused thief is still in hospital recovering following the shooting. Now the town is being terrorised by a mob of mostly Aboriginal children, believed to be as young...

    Yes, the democrats. Specifically the husband of communist plant and Alinsky-ite representative Jan Schakowsky: •Democrats have used trained provocateurs to instigate violence at Republican events nationwide throughout the 2016 election cycle, including at several Donald Trump rallies, using a tactic called “bird-dogging,” according to a new video investigation released Monday by James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas. The goal of “bird-dogging”: to create a sense of “anarchy” around Donald Trump that would undermine his political support. Often, the tactic uses the most vulnerable people — including the elderly and disabled — to maximize shock value. O’Keefe’s extensive video investigation reveals that the...

The Nederland police chief told investigators he spotted a man matching Ansberry's description leaving a hotel as it was being evacuated during the Oct. 11 bomb scare.

The officers are in critical condition while 9 other officers were injured in a firefight that resulted in the death of the suspect. The circumstances of the ambush are eerily similar to the murder of two Palm Springs police officers last week. This is the fruit of Black Lives Matter rhetoric which suggests police are terrorists and out to murder black men. Some members of BLM haven't been shy about advocating violence against officers. It is this sort of incendiary rhetoric...

    The current aristocracy in America came to power in the 1960's.  It was a major shift in the power elite, away from the military, captains of industry, and religious leaders.  It became heavily concentrated in media elites, educators, bureaucrats and lawyers.  It was a deliberate infiltration of institutions and the seizure of power from the people and the states; concentrating it in unelected and unaccountable institutions. The rise of network TV, the fairness doctrine imposed by the FCC, and the takeover of virtually all national media by doctrinaire "progressives" meant that the "progressive" gatekeepers in the media decided who...
