    Everyone is focused on the Presidential primary in Indiana but there is also a Republican senate primary there as well. The "Tea Party" candidate, Marlin Stutzman, is being rolled over by the establishment candidate: I call Marlin A. Stutzman "Marlin A. Putzman", because he was dumb enough last year to let even John Boehner fool him: Rep. Martin Stutzman, a Republican congressman for Indiana, said he wouldn’t have been one of the deciding vote factors that led to the passage of the $1.1 trillion budget bill — except that his GOP leadership duped him. Mr. Stutzman and Rep. Kerry Bentivolio,...

    California’s Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom and state Democratic lawmakers appear to be on a collision course over a new round of gun control measures. Newsom, claiming lawmakers are dragging their feet, is collecting thousands of signatures in pursuit of a gun initiative ballot measure in November. But lawmakers say they’re planning to address these issues via legislation, and the initiative could hurt what they’re doing. Critics also say the proposed California ballot initiative contains a wide variety of restrictive, costly and unreasonable gun and ammunition control measures. The proposed “Safety for All As of 2016” initiative has 600,000 signatures from...

    Have you heard of Josiah Walls or Hiram Rhodes Revels? How about Joseph Hayne Rainey? If not, you’re not alone. I taught history and I never knew half of our nation’s past until I began to re-educate myself by learning from original source materials, rather than modern textbooks written by progressive Democrats with an agenda. Interestingly, Democrats have long ago erased these historic figures from our textbooks, only to offer deceitful propaganda and economic enticements in an effort to convince people, especially black Americans, that it’s the Democrats rather than Republicans who are the true saviors of civil liberties. Luckily,...

Since last May, the committee of 12 faculty members, staff and students has met weekly for two hours to identify, discuss and develop solutions to racial issues on campus. Graduate student Jonathan Butler, who went on a hunger strike last fall demanding then-UM System President Tim Wolfe’s resignation, and interim President Mike Middleton are both committee members. Last fall, the committee released a series of videos laying out their goals and discussing their progress.

The image also featured the word “Nigger!” (with the exclamation point) and the hashtag #WhitePower. The hoax incident caused great calamity on the 8,657-student campus in Salisbury, Md. The Salisbury University Police Department initiated a hate-crime investigation. However, upon learning that the unidentified students are black, authorities chose to file no charges, reports The Daily Times, a local newspaper. The racist image appeared inside Blackwell Library on April 10, around the time of the school’s eighth...

    Israel: Trump Is A Global Security ThreatBy Herb Brandon Israel News AgencyJerusalem, Israel — April 29, 2016 … Security analysts in Israel have long believed that Donald Trump’s candidacy was not real. It was started and restarted in recent years. Perhaps an excellent marketing campaign to brand his real estate properties. But as Trump now allocates more of his own money (actually not his, but being loaned to Trump with online donations) his demeanor as an aggressive, serious candidate is now transparent. His lack of seriousness in addressing both domestic and foreign issues is anything but serious. “Most alarming is...

It is most definitely the case in the California Assembly. On Thursday, state lawmakers rejected a harmless resolution to honor legendary actor John Wayne, a native son of California. Wayne grew up in Glendale, California and later became a beloved actor known for his tough guy roles in dozens of popular movies. In fact, he won an Oscar for his performance in “True Grit.”

    It is a strange election cycle when Republicans go to war with each other with a ferocity rarely manifest when they are confronting Democrats and their progressive agendas. It is especially puzzling because a general consensus has formed on the right that the Democratic Party is moving so far left that its agendas threaten the very foundations of America’s social contract. These include a frontal assault on the system of individual rights that the Founders set in place. The left envisions a fundamentally transformed America where individual rights are secondary to the collective rights of races, ethnicities, genders and classes....

"Even sympathetic observers end up a tad uncomfortable here: Those of us who support today's protests against police brutality against black people (such as myself) are less enthusiastic about the campus protests modeled directly on those," author and educator John H. McWhorter writes in The Chronicle Review. "The reason for the difference in reaction, however, is something most people are reluctant to admit, and sometimes may feel it isn’t their 'place' to state." "But there comes a point when...

    Not content with Obama's latest offering to political correctness, replacing a white man (Andrew Jackson) with a black woman (Harriet Tubman) on the $20 bill, some liberals are worried that doing so might mean that blacks are still like slaves and only worth $20. However, for some, placing Tubman on American greenbacks is an extension of the commodification of enslaved people and a slap in the face to her legacy. “I don’t want to see Tubman commodified with a price, as she once was as a slave,” wrote theGuardian’s Steven W. Thrasher last summer. Before the 1860s, it was common...

    The fabulously rich candidate becomes the hero of working-class people by identifying with their economic distress. That formula worked for Franklin D. Roosevelt in the 1930s. Today, Donald Trump's campaign benefits from a similar populist appeal to beleaguered, white, blue-collar voters -- his key constituency. Trump's thumping victory in Tuesday's New York primary renews his momentum as he struggles to overcome the GOP establishment's efforts to block him from seizing the party's presidential nomination. If he continues to win as big as he did in his home state, he may have the delegates needed to prevail in the party convention...

Kayla McKelvey, 25, of Union Township, pleaded guilty to a single count of third-degree creating a false public alarm, acting Union County Prosecutor Grace Park said in a statement. In exchange for her plea, the prosecutor's office will recommend she receive a 90-day jail sentence, Park said. McKelvey, who is black, must also agree to pay $82,000 in restitution for the police response and investigation of the threats.

This includes people who though that African Americans should get an education. Kendi, a Professor of History at the University of Florida, argues that people can be both overtly and covertly racist. His definition of racist is "any concept that regards one racial group as inferior or superior to another racial group in any way." However, this includes people like William Lloyd Garrison, who advocated for social justice for black people...

Thirty-five percent of Americans in Monday’s Gallup survey said they are extremely worried about the state of race relations, up from 28 percent in 2015. That number is also up by more than 100 percent since 2014, when 17 percent of Americans said they were greatly worried about racial strife in America.

Westchester County, New York is ground zero in the left’s push for its vision of regionalism.

    As New York moves to decriminalize low-level offenses, arguing enforcement is "rigged against communities of color," other large cities are coming under pressure from the Justice Department to do the same thing. Attorney General Loretta Lynch has issued a warning to municipal and state judges across the country that their courts could lose federal funding if they don't ease up on fines and arrest warrants for minor crimes involving poor offenders, indigent minorities in particular. In lieu of fines and jail time, Lynch urges the nation's 6,500 municipal courts to provide an avenue for offenders to perform "community service" or...

The campaign workers include a young woman who recently arrived from Peru; an immigrant from the Philippines; a 70-year-old Lakota Indian; a teenage son of Russian immigrants; a Mexican-American. Yet on that same day, back on the editorial page, the writers write as if they were in another universe. Charles Blow was apoplectic over the fact that Ben...

The message contained a first-person account by a man named Todd Petruna about an American commercial airlines flight on which "11 Muslim men" caused a near riot, purportedly as practice or a dry-run for hijacking an airplane. Petruna claimed he was a passenger who helped foil the coordinated attempt by the...

    Geraldo Rivera declared that Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump could win 25 percent of the African American vote, adding that the GOP front-runner is not a racist. "I predict that Trump may get as much as 25 percent of the African American vote," Rivera said on Fox News' "The O'Reilly Factor" on Thursday. "Why? Because he's anti-free trade or unfair trade. He's anti-immigration, the immigrants perceived by black Americans to being in direct competition to them." Rivera added that Trump is not responsible for bringing race into the political atmosphere, as the issue has been used by Democrats and Republicans...

    Illegal and low-skilled immigration disproportionally harms the job prospects and wages of black Americans, Peter Kirsanow, a commissioner on the U.S. Civil Rights Commission, told a Senate panel Wednesday. “Unequivocally, the wages and employment levels of black Americans are disproportionately adversely affect by illegal immigration. Particularly when it pertains to the effect on black males,” Kirsanow testified before the Senate Subcommittee on Immigration and the National Interest.

    The Rev. Al Sharpton is already bracing for critics to try to tear down President Obama's legacy after he leaves office, but the civil rights leader is promising to lead the defense. "The legacy of President Obama, from affordable healthcare to what he's doing on criminal justice, to even what he's done with Osama bin Laden and other things of that nature, will probably be attacked by some," he said.As a result, he plans to help the president bolster his legacy and keep the critics at bay, both personally and with his 25-year-old National Action Network.

    Harvard Law School has been roiled this academic year by allegations of racism–allegations that the school’s Dean, Martha Minow, has stipulated to be true, saying that racism is a “serious problem” at the law school. She doesn’t mean it, of course. Otherwise, someone might ask why she has failed to do something about the problem since becoming dean in 2009. Protesters at the law school have focused on the school’s crest, which borrows from a bookplate that was used by one Isaac Royall, a slaveholder who donated (or whose son donated) land that provided early funding for the school:

When Barack Obama took office, the world swooned, America exhaled and pundits declared an end to centuries of racial division.

    As Super Tuesday approached and it became clear that Donald Trump would dominate the day, desperation set in among his enemies. Those who have power and aspire to gain more had to face that truth and they responded in an ugly way. Knowing it was false, they spread the lie that Trump welcomed the support of David Duke the Grand Moron of the Klu Klux Klan. They knew Trump had thoroughly rejected Duke’s support last August. They knew there was “no there, there;” but they pushed the lie anyway. Desperate people will do desperate things. They know Trump is on...

    The New York Times on Friday and Saturday let its readers know that the Republicans were getting what they deserved for pandering to right-wing extremism and xenophobia, while Hillary Clinton had successfully gained the sensible center. Friday’s lead editorial, “The G.O.P.’s Monster in the Mirror,” began with a little implied Trumpian vulgarity, then smeared the two Republican senators in the presidential race as extremist. Paul Krugman doubled down, calling the field racist, while Ted Cruz was heckled and Hillary Clinton hailed on Saturday's front page. Holy Mitt, what a meltdown. Add this one to Donald Trump’s lengthening list of firsts:...

    While the Republican presidential frontrunner's support appears as solid and stable as any celebrity's, it would be a mistake for political observers to claim that Donald Trump is infallible merely because his floor in the polls won't budge. If it weren't clear at the time that the reality television star's refusal to clearly and unequivocally decline the support of the KKK, David Duke, and other white nationalist organizations was an error, it should be today. Save for the famous immigration hawk Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions, the flood of endorsements you might expect the GOP's delegate leader to receive after a...

    Pity the late Cedric Ford. If he had understood the way the media worked, he might not have gone on the horrific shooting spree in central Kansas on Thursday that cost three people their lives and fourteen people their health. But once the major media understood the demographics of the case, they lost interest in Ford quicker than you could say “Muhammad and Malvo.” Ford simply did not fit the narrative. “Who commits mass shootings?” read the headline of an all too typical piece on CNN.com some months ago. CNN’s answer: the “young, white and male.” At 38, Ford was...
