    IQ rates are dropping in many developed countries and that doesn't bode well for humanity An intelligence crisis could undermine our problem-solving capacities and dim the prospects of the global economy. People are getting dumber. That's not a judgment; it's a global fact. In a host of leading nations, IQ scores have started to decline. SNIP If we want to prevent America from suffering this fate, we’d better figure out why IQs are dropping elsewhere. But it’s uncharted territory. Until recently, IQ scores only moved in one direction: up. And if you're thinking, "Isn't the test set up so that...

    Friday on MSNBC’s “Deadline,” network host Al Sharpton said Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin was refusing to comply with a congressional subpoena to hand over President Donald Trump’s tax returns as part of the president’s stonewalling strategy because he “knows what’s in the documents.” Sharpton said, “He knows what’s in the documents. It may be he’s saying I lose less fighting than if they get the documents, because he knows what we all don’t know and he knows what could hurt him.” He continued, “And that’s what I think the Democrats ought to be saying is, ‘you really can’t afford for...

    MSNBC host Rev. Al Sharpton raised eyebrows Wednesday when he met with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, with critics pointing out that conservatives are scolded for similar relationships. Sharpton’s “Politics Nation” is a weekend news program on the leftist network. Mediaite’s Caleb Howe spotted a photo of the meeting on Sharpton’s Twitter feed and pondered why MSNBC isn’t criticized in the same way conservative outlets are when pundits meet with GOP lawmakers. “The question raised today was whether MSNBC, through Sharpton, should be subject to the same criticism,” Howe wrote.

    Order David Horowitz's new book, Dark Agenda: The War to Destroy Christian America: CLICK HERE.In 2008, the election of Barack Obama was universally hailed as an historic breakthrough event - the first African American presidency in American history. Great expectations were raised for what was then billed as the beginning of a new “post-racial era.” A decade later these expectations have not been fulfilled, and – worse – have been frustrated by the spread of “identity politics” – the most tribalistic, color - conscious and divisive attitude to dominate the public square since the Civil Rights Acts of 1964 and...

    It should surprise no one that in the radicalized Democratic Party of 2019 disgraced Reverend Al Sharpton is a major power-broker. His influence has been on display this week as many of the major Democratic Party presidential candidates attended a convention sponsored by the National Action Network, a “civil rights” organization founded by Sharpton. The list of attendees included Senators Amy Klobuchar, Kamala Harris, Kirsten Gillibrand, Cory Booker, Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders, as well as Congressman Julian Castro, former Congressman “Beto” O’Rourke, former Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper and South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg. Democrats view Sharpton as an African...

    Democratic presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg said Thursday that he was unaware when he said "all lives matter" in 2015 that the phrase was being used to undercut the Black Lives Matter movement. Buttigieg spoke about his past comment after a speech at the National Action Network, a politically powerful organization founded by Rev. Al Sharpton. The phrase "all lives matter" has been used by critics of the Black Lives Matter movement to push back on the view that closer attention needs to be paid to the deaths of African American men and women at the hand of law enforcement.

    ormer Colorado Gov. and 2020 Democrat presidential candidate John Hickenlooper said Friday that he will support legislation to establish a commission to study reparations for black Americans if elected president. Hickenlooper endorsed the measure while speaking at the four-day conference of the National Action Network, the civil rights organization founded by the Rev. Al Sharpton. The MSNBC host asked whether Hickenlooper would sign such a bill as president, and when he began to equivocate, the crowd became agitated, with one audience member crying out: “Yes or no!” Hickenlooper quickly went off script and shouted, “Yes, I’m gonna pass it!”

    The former congressman from El Paso, Texas, who last year failed to unseat Republican Sen. Ted Cruz in a close race to represent the Lone Star State, said he would sign a law proposed by Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Texas, that would create the body if it passed both chambers and he were elected to the White House. “Yes,” O’Rourke said when asked by the Rev. Al Sharpton at the civil rights figure's 2019 National Action Network convention in New York. “Absolutely, I would sign that into law.” [cut] O’Rourke's backing of the idea represents a pivot in his position,...

    The Rev. Al Sharpton portrayed Mayor Rahm Emanuel as a hypocrite Saturday for criticizing Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx’s handling of the Jussie Smollett case when the mayor long was silent on the police murder of Laquan McDonald. **SNIP** “The reason this is of national significance to me, there is a marked difference between how they reacted to this and how they reacted to the Laquan McDonald case. They were not outraged when the video was withheld until after the mayor’s election,” Sharpton said of Emanuel, police Superintendent Eddie Johnson and other top police officials. “There was a fox...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez will be a featured speaker at Al Sharpton’s National Action Network convention next month, joining a large number of Democratic presidential contenders. Sharpton said Wednesday he was impressed with the first-year congresswoman, who shocked the political world last year by defeating veteran Rep. Joe Crowley. “I met her in Washington. She seems to be very smart and committed to the progressive agenda,” Sharpton said. The convention will be held at the Sheraton Times Square from April 3-6. Ocasio-Cortez is scheduled to speak April 5 — right before Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders. Other speakers include Democratic star Stacey...

    MSNBC finally got around to covering the scandal surrounding "Empire” star Jussie Smollett and allowed a guest to float a theory that Trump-supporting cops are lying about the case. MSNBC completely skipped the Smollett news during primetime on Wednesday night, which was first noticed by The Daily Caller. The same night, rival liberal media news organization CNN dedicated significant time to the Chicago Police Department announcing felony charges against the actor had been approved. Zach Stafford, the editor-in-chief of LGBTQ magazine The Advocate, joined MSNBC’s Kasie Hunt and Al Sharpton on Thursday to discuss Smollett – who faces up to...

    Al Sharpton, on the sidelines of a meeting with Democratic presidential candidate Kamala Harris, said Thursday that “Empire” star Jussie Smollett should face "accountability to the maximum" if the actor indeed staged an attack last month initially described as a hate crime. “Whoever is wrong should pay the maximum. If Smollett is wrong, he ought to face accountability to the maximum,” the cable news host and activist told a throng of reporters on Thursday, after lunching with Sen. Harris at Sylvia’s, a landmark restaurant in New York City’s Harlem neighborhood.

    She is her father’s daughter. Dominique Sharpton, daughter of shakedown artist Al Sharpton, scored a $95,000 settlement from the city over a sprained ankle — even though she had posted snaps of herself on social media climbing a mountain in Bali and strutting around in high heels just seven months after the fall. It took nearly four years, but de Blasio administration lawyers finally threw in the towel in the case. “After a thorough evaluation, we determined that settling this case was in the best interest of the city,” said a spokesman for the city Law Department. The 32-year-old Brooklyn resident,...

    The Rev. Al Sharpton has found an eager buyer for the rights to his life story — his own charity. The National Action Network agreed to pay the activist preacher $531,000 for his “life story rights for a 10-year period,” according to the non-profit’s latest tax filing, which was obtained by The Post. . . The document does not indicate when Sharpton, who is president of NAN, gets the cash, which is above and beyond the $244,661 he already pulled down in compensation from the group in 2017.
