    FULL TITLE.......................Sharpton: African-Americans Who ‘Don’t Trust’ Trump to Protect Them From White Supremacists Increasingly Buying Guns........................Sunday on MSNBC’s “PoliticsNation,” host Al Sharpton said African-Americans diverse in age and gender are now increasingly taking up legal arms because “They don’t trust the Trump administration to protect them from the rise of white supremacists aggression that we have seen in the past year.” Sharpton said “The story of legal gun ownership among black Americans is as combustible as it is complex. Some have contended that modern gun control begins not with school shootings but with the Black Panther Party for Self Defense....

    Anti-racism became racism a while back. But most lefties aren't as open in discussing the implications of that.

    Tuesday is tax day. I tell you this not to raise your blood pressure, but to remind you. If youÂ’re like me, you wait till the last minute because you have to cut a check to Uncle Sam. Since withholdings used to force me to give the government an interest-free loan before I started doing contracting work, I figured making them wait till the very last day was the least I could do to protest for the hand in my wallet they used to have for me.But I will cut that check again this year, as I do every year....

    Rev. Al Sharpton claimed this weekend that former National Security Advisor Susan Rice is just the latest victim of a Republican campaign of calumny against influential African-American females—an effort the black activist argued has already targeted California Congressman Maxine Waters and journalist April Ryan. Sharpton declared during his weekly rally on Saturday that the allegations are part of a pattern of conservative attacks on black women. “Same time we saw that they want to jump on Susan Rice. Now, how many black women are ya’ll gonna try to demonize?” Sharpton told an applauding crowd at the Harlem headquarters of his...

    Al Sharpton's daughter and Eric Garner's mother were both arrested Tuesday night during a protest outside of Trump Tower against the president's Supreme Court nominee, Judge Neil Gorsuch. "In an act of civil disobedience and in the tradition of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Eric Garner's mom and others were arrested tonight ... over President Trump's SCOTUS nominee Neil Gorsuch," Sharpton's spokeswoman, Rachel Noerdlinger, said in a statement, according to the New York Post.

    Al Sharpton backed up his fellow civil rights leader, Rep. John Lewis, D-Ga., who last week questioned the legitimacy of President-elect Donald Trump. 'I think there is no question that the process that elected him was not legitimate,' Sharpton said yesterday on MSNBC, the network where he also hosts a show. Since Lewis said that he didn't view Trump as a 'legitimate president,' he's been whacked around by the president-elect, who continued to tweet about the civil rights leader and Democratic congressman today. During the interview and citing intelligence reports that pointed to Russian interference, Sharpton said the electoral process...

    The Rev. Al Sharpton on Sunday praised President Obama and touted his accomplishments while in office. "I am so proud of President Barack Obama, not just because he was and is my color, but because he was America's kind," Sharpton said on MSNBC's "Politics Nation." "He helped this country like no president I've seen in my lifetime. We should thank God we lived in the age of Obama." Sharpton said Americans must be "concerned" about the future of the country when President-elect Donald Trump is inaugurated next week. He went on to tout Obama's record, including his work on improving...

    Al Sharpton will be marching on Washington on Martin Luther King Day, just five days before President-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration. It may be a lonely walk. Sharpton’s “We Shall Not Be Moved” march has piqued the interest of fewer than 1,000 people on Facebook. A rival event, the Women’s March on Washington, has already secured 175,000 RSVPs, with an additional 250,000 people saying they’re interested in attending. Two key organizers of the Women’s March are former executive directors of National Action Network, the civil-rights nonprofit Sharpton founded in 1991. Led almost exclusively by women of color, the Women’s March is...

    WASHINGTON -- National Action Network president Rev. Al Sharpton promised a “season of civil disobedience” in reaction to the nomination of Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) for attorney general in the Trump administration. Sharpton, an MSNBC host, said activists have planned a march in Washington on Jan. 14 during the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday weekend to protest the Sessions nomination. Sharpton recalled spending 90 days in jail for protesting on U.S. Navy land against military exercises on the island of Vieques in 2001 when George W. Bush was president, adding that civil disobedience usually works because it changes policy. “We’re...

    The Rev. Al Sharpton says Americans cannot afford Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) serving as President-elect Donald Trump’s attorney general. “To have Sen. Sessions as attorney general is a nightmare we cannot wake up from,” he said during a Friday press call with other civil rights leaders, according to the Washington Examiner. The NAACP’s president, meanwhile, said his organization mainly opposes Sessions over his record on voting rights.

    Conservatives don’t want to read about Bill de Blasio. This I have learned the hard way. Publish an article about New York’s lefty mayor in a conservative outlet and the reader reaction will be as predictable as a Mets loss on opening day. “Why should I care about this?” goes the typical comment. “New Yorkers voted for this crazy guy. Let them suffer the consequences.” Fair. And true enough. If you live in the Midwest or Texas or Florida — or anywhere, really, outside the self-obsessed media market of New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut — the constant barrage of...

    American Thinker ^ | November 18, 2016 | Daniel John Sobieski
    The mainstream media, having failed to derail or even anticipate Donald Trump’s victory, have now seized on discrediting one of the architects of his victory, calling Navy veteran, entrepreneur, and Breitbart publisher Steve Bannon a “white nationalist”. They cite as evidence some Breitbart headlines designed to provoke and attract readers as being beyond the pale. Compared to what? The New York Times, perhaps? Publishers don’t necessarily control every jot and tittle of content in their publications, but if one concedes the point of Bannon’s critics, those who have problems with Bannon advising Trump had no problem with race-baiter Al Sharpton...

    With the election fast approaching, GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump has stepped up his call for his supporters to become poll watchers to watch for, and document, illegal activity. He even has set up a page on his website for people to sign up. But MSNBC’s Al Sharpton has had it with Trump’s call for poll-watchers, claiming they are there to intimidate minorities. “How concerned are you about voter intimidation tactics in this election,” he asked Sherrilyn Ifill of the NAACP Legal Defense & Educational Fund, as he warned about militias backing Trump. “…in the last several months, as there...

    Al Sharpton wasn't all that impressed by Donald Trump"s black outreach efforts with a visit to a Detroit church today. He said on MSNBC this afternoon that Trump "blew an opportunity" to lay out a clear vision of his agenda for the black community in an ideal forum for that. And with Trump talking about communities learning from each other, Sharpton said, "Harlem is on the same island as Trump Tower. What have you gone up there and learned?" He argued that it sounds like Trump is "just discovering" what black people need but not actually outlining specific policies for...

  • NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton to resign

    NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton will announce his impending resignation and be replaced by Chief of Department James O’Neill, sources told The Post on Tuesday. Bratton’s resignation will take effect in mid-September, sources said. Bratton has repeatedly said he would not serve past the end of Mayor Bill de Blasio’s current term, which ends next year, and he recently endorsed O’Neill as his preferred successor. O’Neill was promoted to chief of department in late 2014 to replace Philip Banks, who unexpectedly quit rather than be promoted to first deputy commissioner.
