  • Ill. state workers forced to attend Pelosi, Jackson Jr. event on taxpayer dime

    Documents and a whistle-blower affidavit obtained by The Daily Caller charge that House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, Illinois Democratic Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr., and Rev. Jesse Jackson Sr., participated in an unethical — and possibly illegal — effort to force 76 employees of an Illinois state agency to engage in political activity on the taxpayers’ dime. According to the whistle-blower, Rev. Jackson also encouraged the government employees to load first-generation and low-income college students up with student loan debt — because Democrats in Congress, he allegedly promised, would eventually pass laws to forgive that debt later. “[T]hose people will continue...
  • Rush to judgment in Trayvon Martin case

    At first glance, the death of Trayvon Martin seemed to be a straightforward example of ugly, racial conflict resulting in the killing of an innocent black teenager by a white man, George Zimmerman. But now, as evidence continues to come forward, the facts seem much more complicated and the "obvious truth" premature. ... To make matters more complex, we found out that in the past several months, Martin was suspended from school three times, once for the possession of drug paraphernalia. The Miami Herald reported that in the gated community in which Zimmerman patrolled, there were eight burglaries, nine thefts...
  • Democrat Wants House to Condemn Slur at Perry's Ranch

    In a surprise move, Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr., D-Ill., tried to get a House vote Thursday on a resolution condemning Texas Gov. Rick Perry for a racial slur once painted on a rock at his family's leased West Texas hunting ranch. Jackson, who earlier in the week had spoken to the House Democratic Caucus about a resolution critical of Perry, was unsuccessful. But he said on the House floor that the West Texas ranch's name, "N---rhead," was offensive. The African-American lawmaker, son of the Rev. Jesse Jackson, said, "N---r is offensive." "N---rhead is offensive. And for a governor of one...

    Death threats, near riots and storming the Wisconsin State Capitol are all the work of Democracy. In a Democracy, there are hangings and lynchings or even the drowning of Witches. Democracies are mob rule. As events unfolded in Wisconsin over the last several weeks it has became clear that Liberals and Democrats prefer anarchy to lawful government. We’ve seen elected Democrats running away from and deserting their jobs to Union organized anti-government mayhem. Just asks the janitors that had to clean human feces from various corners of the Capitol building, which Union mobs and Democrat political agitators left as markings...

    CARACAS, Venezuela - The Rev. Jesse Jackson offered support for President Hugo Chavez on Sunday, saying a call for his assassination by a U.S. religious broadcaster was a criminal act and that Washington and Venezuela should work out their differences through diplomacy. The U.S. civil rights leader condemned last week's suggestion by Pat Robertson that American agents should kill the leftist Venezuelan leader, calling the conservative commentator's statements "immoral" and "illegal." Jackson urged U.S. authorities to take action, and said the U.S. government must choose "diplomacy over any threats of sabotage or isolation or assassination." "We must choose a civilized...

    July 6, 2005 -- A racist ex-con confessed that he fatally stabbed a beloved mother of two at a White Plains mall because he wanted "to kill a white person." "She was not innocent. She was white," convicted rapist Phillip Grant confessed in a chilling videotaped statement to cops that was played in White Plains City Court yesterday — the same day victim Concetta Russo Carriero was laid to rest. The 43-year-old homeless man told cops he had never laid eyes on Russo Carriero, 56, before he stabbed her in the chest twice last Wednesday on the seventh level of...

    NEWSWEEK:What’s the matter with Ohio? Rev. Jesse Jackson: In Columbus, Cincinnati, Akron, Youngstown, Cleveland, where I was, you had blacks standing in line for six hours in the rain. That’s a form of voter suppression. Ohio Secretary of State Kenneth Blackwell says that machines were allotted based on turnout in past years, and that he didn’t realize they’d need more machines until it was too late. He had to know it because registration was up. Blackwell may have had to deliver for Bush and [Vice President Dick] Cheney and he got a lighter rap than [former Florida Secretary of State...

    NO CLEAR ACCESSFormer vice president Al Gore claims his new cable network won't be liberal in tone, just hip. But judging by his investors, even-handedness isn't going to cut it. Beyond Gore's partner in the deal, Joel Hyatt, former Ohio Sen. Howard Metzenbaum's son-in-law, the new cable channel -- formerly Newsworld International -- has the husband of Sen. Dianne Feinstein on board as a major cash cow, as well as big DNC fundraiser Ron Burkle. Both former President Bill Clinton and the Rev. Jesse Jackson sit on Burkle's company board. Gore was down in New Orleans to make the announcement...

    My hubby is going to be on the O'Reilly Factor on Feb. 24 to discuss Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson's visits (they each came seperately) to the Nuwaubian Nation of Moors "village" (read: compound) to call our Sheriff racists and say that the Nuwaubian leader, Malachi York (aka about 20 other names) was being oppressed. Hmmm, come to find out, he was arrested in May 2002, with the noterioty of having the most charges of sexual abuse of children ever in the state of Georgia. And he plead guilty last month. Haven't seen the revurands anywhere about "helping" the children....

    Damage, not repair Debra J. Saunders Sunday, April 28, 2002 ©2002 San Francisco Chronicle URL: The state of California may be on the verge of getting into the slave reparations business. Thank Sacramento legislators who in 2000, with little fanfare or media coverage, passed two bills, signed by Gov. Gray Davis. These bills could lead to requirements that companies doing business in California pay reparations for slavery, if they or parent companies ever benefited from slavery. At a Chronicle editorial board meeting on Tuesday, the Rev. Jesse Jackson said that the bills also could lead to reparations for Chinese...
