    A student walks down a Harding High hallway wearing headphones, chanting along to violent rap lyrics. Teacher Erik Brandt taps him on the shoulder. Turn it down, he gestures. The kid stares at Brandt with chilling intensity. He points at the older man, fingers bent in the shape of a gun, and shoots. Then moves on. Within Harding's corridors is a turbulent clutter of students who push and cuss and bully their way from one end of the building to another. Brandt, a finalist for Minnesota's Teacher of the Year and a 20-year veteran of the English department, doubles as...

    Most major media outlets try to cover up their ideology.  They still push it in articles, but they like to beat around the bush, speaking indirectly and acting a bit timid about pushing their real agenda because of its radical nature. But you don't see that kind of rhetorical hesitancy at the Huffington Post.  Their forces of radical progressivism are always the first to charge over the top of Brokeback Mountain, championing communism and the destruction of our culture and our nation-state, and always with a strong emphasis on sexual deviancy, as befitting a publication named after Arianna Huffington's...

    There was a mostly minority-on-minority bloodbath in Baltimore over the Memorial Day weekend, with 26 people shot and nine dead, and the main reaction we hear from the left is "racism." How do perpetual race activists ever expect to be viewed as credible when they react to every incident, irrespective of the facts, as racially motivated? Take Ferguson, Missouri, for example. Though a grand jury refused to return a criminal indictment against police Officer Darren Wilson in connection with what authorities concluded was his legally justifiable shooting of Michael Brown, racial activists continue to cite the tragedy as if it...

That being said, I cannot ignore a fundamental truth that is at the very heart of the rhetoric dividing our communities and destroying our nation. The real reason there is such a high degree of cynicism and distrust along racial lines is because of the unpleasant realities people either completely ignore, carefully avoid or foolishly justify.

    One of the Baltimore police officers who arrested Freddie Gray wants the police department and prosecutor to produce a knife that was the reason for the arrest, saying in court papers that it is an illegal weapon. The motion was filed Monday by attorneys for Officer Edward Nero in Baltimore District Court. Nero is charged with second-degree assault, misconduct in office and false imprisonment — charges that can only be proven if Gray was wrongly arrested, said Andy Alperstein, a Baltimore attorney who has represented police officers but is not involved in the Gray case. If the knife was illegal,...

    Attorney General Loretta Lynch pledged Tuesday to improve the city's police department after meeting with the family of a man who was fatally injured in police custody. "We're here to hold your hands and provide support," Lynch said in a meeting with faith and community leaders, including members of Congress. The new attorney general met privately at the University of Baltimore with Freddie Gray's family, days after the state's attorney charged six police officers involved in Gray's arrest. Gray's injury in police custody and death a week later sparked protests and riots that prompted Maryland's governor to bring in the...

    A new poll released Monday indicated that Americans believe race relations are at their worst in more than two decades. The CBS News/New York Times poll said 61 percent of Americans characterize race relations in the U.S. as “bad,” including a majority of white and black respondents. The figure is the highest since 1992. A total of 79 percent of African-Americans believe police are more likely to use deadly force against a black person than against a white person, while 53 percent of whites believe race does not play a role, the survey said.... ....Most respondents – 64 percent of...

    The lies don’t really matter. There are no spontaneous demonstrations anymore; just anarchistic attacks on society which are managed and orchestrated to appear spontaneous. The spirit of America has been infected and degraded by a president who hates us and loves seeing the agony we are in as we try to prove a negative. That negative is, “There is no systematic police brutality.” There is no systematic “police brutality” in America. There are occasional bad acting cops who become the center of claims that the whole American system of policing is corrupt and rotten, but no evidence of systematic police...

    Martin O’Malley (D) says he plans to announce his presidential campaign in Baltimore. Perhaps he’ll used a burned-out police car or a looted storefront as his backdrop. The former Maryland governor and Baltimore mayor tried to blame last week’s unrest on structural problems in our economy, outsourcing and a failure to invest in infrastructure. Nice try. The fact is, O’Malley and the Democrats own Baltimore and the disaster it has become. As one resident who met O’Malley at an inner-city food drive last week put it, “He’s walking into the aftermath of his legacy.” It’s not his legacy alone. The...

    Speaking at the opening of the Whitney Museum in New York City, Michelle Obama implied that museums intimidate people who "look like" her, as well as "young people." The Whitney Museum is a museum of American art. Ms. Obama began her speech by saying how beautiful the new museum was and by thanking Mayor de Blasio. "I also want to recognize Mayor de Blasio for his leadership and his passion, and for joining us here today -- absolutely," she said. The First Lady then mentioned one of the themes that one of the museum's exhibits has, which is, “How can...

    Among the many painful ironies in the current racial turmoil is that communities scattered across the country were disrupted by riots and looting because of the demonstrable lie that Michael Brown was shot in the back by a white policeman in Missouri — but there was not nearly as much turmoil created by the demonstrable fact that a fleeing black man was shot dead by a white policeman in South Carolina. Totally ignored was the fact that a black policeman in Alabama fatally shot an unarmed white teenager, and was cleared of any charges, at about the same time that...

    I am reluctant to start this article now since so much of the Baltimore disaster is still unfolding. But I will try to document some of the facts, as far we know them, before they get swept under the rug of even more crucial events. The Baltimore riots are a serious problem. That much we do know. Would I be too politically incorrect to call them race riots? Probably, although from what we have seen on TV, virtually all the participants are African-Americans. But one would assume that in order to be considered a race riot, there would have to...

    Americans are bracing for a summer of racial disturbances around the country, such as those that have wracked Baltimore, with African Americans and whites deeply divided about why the urban violence has occurred, a new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll has found. A resounding 96% of adults surveyed said it was likely there would be additional racial disturbances this summer, a signal that Americans believe Baltimore’s recent problems aren’t a local phenomenon but instead are symptomatic of broader national problems. When asked to explain recent events in Baltimore and other cities that have seen confrontations between police and members of...

    JACKSON, MI – Concerned he would have to send an innocent man to prison, a Jackson County judge on Friday set aside a jury's guilty verdict in a criminal sexual conduct case. The rare decision, a first in Circuit Judge John McBain's 13 years on the bench, means Gregory Patterson, 50, is not guilty of three counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct, felonies that would have sent him to prison for a minimum of 25 years. A jury convicted Patterson of the offenses at the close of a March trial, but McBain granted a motion made by defense lawyer George...
