    OBAMA COMPARES KENYA’S ANTI-GAY LAWS TO JIM CROW President Obama and Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta clashed at a joint press conference in the African state during his official visit on Sunday: Obama harshly criticized Kenya’s record on issues related to homosexuality. “When you start treating people differently not because of any harm they are doing to anybody, but because they are different, that’s the path whereby freedoms begin to erode,” he said. “Bad things start to happen.” The President also compared Kenya’s laws to Jim Crow-era segregationist policies.

    Out of Twitter’s 2,910 U.S. employees, only 49 (1.7 percent) are black, and that fact has black activists led by Rev. Jesse Jackson racing to condemn the company. Jackson, who has been pressuring tech companies for years to hire more blacks, told The Guardian black Americans are “becoming intolerant” of Twitter’s slow growth in diversity.

    “Son of Kenya,” Barack Obama, proved once again that his patience with people, nations, and world leaders that disagree with his view of the world registers a big fat zero on the liberal Tolerance Meter.  When Obama finds out anyone (other than a Muslim) disagrees with his social policy focus, it becomes his personal mission to convince them otherwise. And if the mere awesomeness of his presence fails to change minds, Obama will attempt to humiliate his ideological adversaries into submission by getting in their face. For example, after Barack ‘LGBTQ’ Obama was specifically asked by the Evangelical Alliance...

    President Barack Obama, wrapping up a landmark trip to Kenya, has told Kenyans that there is "no limit to what you can achieve" but said they had to deepen democracy, tackle corruption and end exclusion based on gender or ethnicity. Obama addressed an audience of several thousand packed into an indoor arena in Nairobi on Sunday, before heading to Ethiopia, the second stop on his East Africa tour. The US president, whose father was born and died in Kenya, talked of his own experience and Kenya's in the five decades since independence. "I'm here as president of a country that...

    On July 15 in Durant, Oklahoma, President Obama announced ConnectHome, describing it as: … a new initiative with communities, the private sector, and federal government to expand high speed broadband to more families across the country. ConnectHome is aimed at low-income areas with little broadband uptake, expanding several earlier federal programs. The headlines are about connecting the poor to the modern convenience of the internet, but they don’t mention who’s paying for it. As with most federal programs, you are. Is ConnectHome worth the costs, and what are they? So far, the ConnectHome website is thin on details. (It’s even...

That’s what some Amazon.com reviewers are insisting after a new book was released last week. The book, “Truth Overruled: The Future of Marriage and Religious Freedom,” is a roadmap from Ryan Anderson, a senior research fellow at the Heritage Foundation, on how the conservative movement can move forward in promoting marriage and protecting religious freedom after the Supreme Court’s ruling. “I wrote this book for all Americans.

Neither of the co-guest hosts sitting in for Harris-Perry, Richard Liu and Janet Mock, challenged Cullors' characterization. This despite the fact that even Eric Holder's Justice Department found no wrongdoing on the part of the police officer who shot Brown. View the video here.

    For generations, working- and middle-class opponents of anti-discrimination laws have argued that more affluent whites support such laws without having to bear any of the costs. Now, the Democratic loyalty of better-off white liberals will be tested by two recent developments: the June 25 Supreme Court decision in Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs v. The Inclusive Communities Project, Inc. and the Department of Housing and Urban Development’s issuance of a new rule on July 8, “Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing.” Such a development has potential political ramifications. It may drive some middle-income and other whites into the arms of...

    Education remains separate and unequal nearly everywhere in the United States, but Confederate-flag-waving Southerners aren’t responsible for the most racially divided schools. That title goes to New York, where 64 percent of black students attend schools with few, if any, white students, according to a recent report by the Civil Rights Project. In fact, the Northeast is the only region where the percentage of black students in extremely segregated schools — those where at least 90 percent of students are minorities — is higher than it was in the 1960s. Schools in the South, on the other hand, saw the...

He took on prominent figures over anti-Semitic remarks or representations—actor Mel Gibson among them—and accepted any ensuing apologies on behalf of an entire community. No other U.S. Jewish leader has wielded as much influence with policymakers, faith leaders and U.S. Jews. On Monday, Foxman retires as national director, a major moment of transition in American Jewish life that raises questions about the future of the organization known as the ADL. […] The ADL...

    Hillary Rodham Clinton’s standing is falling among Democrats, and voters view her as less decisive and inspiring than when she launched her presidential campaign just three months ago, according to a new Associated Press-GfK poll. The survey offers a series of warning signs for the leading Democratic candidate. Most troubling, perhaps, for her prospects are questions about her compassion for average Americans, a quality that fueled President Barack Obama’s two White House victories. Just 39 percent of all Americans have a favorable view of Clinton, compared to nearly half who say they have a negative opinion of her. That’s an...

    ASUNCIÓN, Paraguay — His speeches can blend biblical fury with apocalyptic doom. Pope Francis does not just criticize the excesses of global capitalism. He compares them to the “dung of the devil.” He does not simply argue that systemic “greed for money” is a bad thing. He calls it a “subtle dictatorship” that “condemns and enslaves men and women.” Having returned to his native Latin America, Francis has renewed his left-leaning critiques on the inequalities of capitalism, describing it as an underlying cause of global injustice, and a prime cause of climate change. Francis escalated that line last week when...

    So I've learned Democrats are pretty scared of Walker Scott Walker is a Health Care-Denying, Anti-Worker, Economy-Dragging, Education-Slashing, Marriage Equality-Opposing, Teacher-Disrespecting, Trickle-Down-Believing Anti-Choice Republican, and he's running for President. Finished laughing hysterically yet? No? We’ll give you a moment. OK, so now that you’ve had a chance to catch your breath, can we please talk about the horrific stench of desperation that’s emanating from the Dems? Because seriously. They’re flinging every last bit of poo they can squeeze out at the Walker wall, hoping something will stick. It’s truly a sickening spectacle — and par for the course with these...
  • The Majority of Catholic Republicans Believe in Climate Change

    Last week, Pope Francis released his long awaited—and preemptively leaked—encyclical, acknowledging climate change as mostly human-induced and cause for drastic transformation on both individual and nationwide levels. It was an unprecedented move by the leader of the Catholic Church, as religiosity has long been linked to lower levels of climate concern. Fortunately, however, the Pope's message will fall on receptive ears. Researchers at the Yale Project on Climate Change Communication have found that, among religious Republicans—and Republicans are more likely to be religious than Democrats—Catholic Republicans are "more convinced that global warming is happening and human-caused, and are more worried...

    The term “politically correct” dates back to shortly after the Russian Revolution of 1917. Originally, it only meant adherence to the policies and principles of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union (aka the “party line”). Inevitably, though, the term would become one of derision, mocking those who would blindly follow Stalin’s enormous policy flip-flops during and after World War II. These days, the term is primarily used to mock the imposition of overly precious speech codes, supposedly intended to prevent insult. Too often, though, the net effect is simply censorship. A common complaint is that the choice of what...
  • Lyft Co-Founder: ‘Most Millennials Won’t Own a Car in Five Years’…And Data Supports This!

    *If you’ve never heard of ride-sharing, app-based taxi services like Uber and Lyft, you probably don’t get out much. They are pretty much taking over the world. And John Zimmer, who co-founded Lyft, even goes as far as saying that in five years, most millennials won’t own a car. They will see no need for it. “You could actually start seeing the majority of millennials in the next five years or so saying there’s no reason I should get a car,” Zimmer told Mashable recently. “The car used to be the symbol of American freedom. Now it’s like …owning a...
  • Do Democrats Own Blacks

    The other day a white man referred to Lt Col Allen West's Conservatism as "Stockholm Syndrome." It seems that some white liberals believe a Black man cannot choose his own philosophies and therefore these particular people are the property of the Democratic party. Do you find the concept of the Liberal/"progressive"/Democratic Party owning a particular race of people disturbing? I most certainly do! I'll never be "property." I find myself disgusted by those who chose "benevolent bondage" over dangerous liberty. I feel hostility towards those who would usurp the freedom and autonomy of those who would choose liberty. “If you...

    In the Age of Obama, death threats by angry progressive mobs hell-bent on delivering ‘social justice’ are transforming America like Obama promised. The latest victims are the workers of a an Elk Grove, California gun shop who took a stand for free speech in displaying the Confederate battle flag only to be forced to take it down following threats to burn the store down and murder employees.On June 25 the employees of Wild Bill’s Old West Trading took a vote to display the flag on the storefront as an assertion of First Amendment freedom of speech rights in the...

    Major cities across the U.S. are seeing increases in homicide rates, with much of the violence centered in poor African American and Latino communities. According to a report in USA Today, during the first half of this year the murder rates in a number of cities are exceeding those logged during the first half of 2014. For example, this year Milwaukee has more than doubled its number of murders, with 84 compared to last year’s 41. Chicago has seen an increase from 171 last year to 203 this year. Notably the two areas that saw uprisings following police-involved deaths of...

    The Social Memo ^ | 7/6/15 | Aurelius
    Writing for the Huffington Post, Mandy Hitchcock declared that racism "was created by white people" and that it is entirely on white people to end it. In her article, titled "It's My Job to Raise Children Who Are Not Only Not Racist But Actively Anti-Racist," Hitchcock spends multiple paragraphs on the privileges that white people have. "Zero: the number of times I have discussed race or racism in any meaningful way with my white four-year-old son," Hitchcock writes. "Of all of the many privileges I enjoy as a white woman in America, this is by far the most significant." She...
