  • Obama Taking "Symbolic Reparations" [semi-satire]

    Semi-News/Semi-Satire ^ | 30 Apr 2017 | John Semmens
    Stung by critics who say that former President Barack Obama is showing inordinate greed by accepting fat payments from Wall Street for brief speeches, former Presidential Press Secretary Josh Earnest argued that "one of the President's greatest regrets during his time in office was his inability to establish a public program of reparations for America's historic mistreatment of racial minorities. Rather than just shrug off his disappointment he has decided to individually extract payments to compensate for those injustices." "We mustn't overlook the fact that the $400,000 per speech fees are being paid by white men to a black man,"...
  • Venezuela is about to force people to work in the fields

    04/24/2017 7:33:51 PM PDT · by TigerClaws · 85 replies
    Amnesty International says a new decree in Venezuela that says the government can make any of its citizens farm the country's fields in order to combat its current, punishing food crisis "effectively amounts to forced labour." "The decree, officially published earlier this week, establishes that people working in public and private companies can be called upon to join state-sponsored organizations specialized in the production of food," Amnesty International reported. "They will be made to work in the new companies temporarily for a minimum of 60 days after which their 'contracts' will be automatically renewed for an extra 60-day period or...

    Georgetown University ^ | April 18, 2017
    An apology from Georgetown and the Society of Jesus’ Maryland Province for their roles in the 1838 sale of 272 enslaved individuals for the university’s benefit took place today in the company of more than 100 descendants. “Today the Society of Jesus, who helped to establish Georgetown University and whose leaders enslaved and mercilessly sold your ancestors, stands before you to say that we have greatly sinned,” said Rev. Timothy Kesicki, S.J., president of the Jesuit Conference of Canada and the United States, during a morning Liturgy of Remembrance, Contrition, and Hope. “We pray with you today because we have...

    Terror Trends Bulletin ^ | Christopher W. Holton
    Can there be anything more symbolic of the Obama administration’s failure to combat the global Jihad than Boko Haram’s kidnapping of hundreds of Christian school girls in Nigeria three years ago? Especially given the fact that Boko Haram subsequently became an Islamic State affiliate. That’s right, one side-effect of the Obama administration allowing the Islamic State to form and metastasize was the joining of forces with the organization that then-first lady Michelle Obama so infamously “attacked” with her hashtag counterterrorism program. This week marks the third anniversary of the mass abduction

He proves he does have access to intel. In this Periscope, he says he knows that the pedophile rings across the globe are all connected, and that the Saudis are buying kids from Haiti. He insinuates that the whole thing will be exposed according to a well thought out schedule; there is a reason it hasn't been released yet. He says he has the whole story, and has given it to a couple of people...

  • Mexicans execute defenders of Goliad (1836)

    03/27/2017 7:47:10 AM PDT · by Kid Shelleen · 15 replies
    In a disastrous setback for the Texans resisting Santa Anna’s dictatorial regime, the Mexican army defeats and executes 417 Texas revolutionaries at Goliad. Long accustomed to enjoying considerable autonomy from their Mexican rulers, many Anglo Texan settlers reacted with alarm when Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna proclaimed himself dictator of Mexico in 1835. Santa Anna immediately imposed martial law and attempted to disarm the Texans. Yet, this move merely fed the flames of Texan resistance.

    The Black Agenda Report ^ | January 22, 2013 | Denis Rancourt
    For some descendants of persons held in U.S. chattel bondage, no monetary sum can compensate for the enslavement of their ancestors. However, for those looking for a number, there are various ways to calculate the value of involuntary servitude. Here’s one of them. Calculating Reparations: $1.5 Million for Each Slave Descendant in the U.S. by Denis Rancourt This article previously appeared on Mr. Rancourt’s web site, Activist Teacher. “This calculation includes only the money due to ancestors and their descendants, in terms of the stolen actual labor counted in person-hours.” It is not difficult to calculate a MINIMUM amount of...
  • 16 Year Congressman: CIA Leak Shows “Sliding Down the Slippery Slope(shortened)

    Original title: 16-year congressman Dennis Kucinich writes: That the CIA has reached into the lives of all Americans through its wholesale gathering of the nation’s “haystack” of information has already been reported. It is bad enough that the government spies on its own people. It is equally bad that the CIA, through its incompetence, has opened the cyberdoor to anyone with the technological skills and connections to spy on anyone else. The constant erosion of privacy at the hands of the government and corporations has annihilated the concept of a “right to privacy,” which is embedded in the rationale of...

    Unacceptable! By now, you’ve probably heard about Ben Carson’s racism. The world-renowned brain surgeon is once again being portrayed as an out-of-touch idiot. This time, it’s because he had the shameful audacity to compare slaves to immigrants. Clearly, that’s awful.

    PJ Media ^ | 02/14/2017 | Roger Kimball
    Today, I have a column in the Wall Street Journal about Yale’s decision to rename Calhoun College. As I mentioned there, anyone paying attention to what’s been happening on college campuses, and especially to what’s been happening at Yale, will not be surprised at the decision. Back in August 2016, Yale’s president Peter Salovey announced that, in response to various agitations from students and faculty, he was convening the Soviet- or Orwellian-sounding “Committee to Establish Principles on Renaming.” As I noted at the time, there has been something of a craze for renaming things on college campuses recently, as students...

    It seems many in progressive media are too PC to call out a Musim professor even when he's advocating rape and slavery? Two things: This comes from the account of Umar Lee, a Muslim student who was offended by how far Jonathan Brown went in defending slavery and rape. In the era of the campus trigger warning, rape culture and renaming buildings named after slave owners, Brown offered a spirited defense of slavery and rape.

    Slavery and rape aren’t wrong when Muslims do it. "I don’t think it’s morally evil to own somebody." "A male owner of a female slave has the right to sexual access to her.” These views don’t come from an ISIS underground bunker, but out of the brilliantly lit halls of Georgetown University where rape and slavery are defended by an Islamic studies professor. ... defending actual slavery and rape is still okay at Georgetown. So long as it’s committed by Muslims under the license of the Koran. "I don’t think it’s morally evil to own somebody,” Jonathan Brown explained ......

    We know that most Professors seem to be Liberals, so we are used to hearing what they teach. However, the following crosses the line in so many ways. We need to know what our college students are being taught. I made the statement today to my husband: “We are in so much trouble in our society right now, but think about what it will be like when the next generation takes over.” In saying that, I want to explain myself. The effect we will be seeing when the next generation takes over is what this generation has taught them. The...
  • Death of History

    It is said that if we ignore history, we will repeat it. How can we follow this quintessential maxim if we allow people to erase or rewrite history? Recently, Charlottesville City in Virginia, voted to tear down a statue of Robert E. Lee at a cost of $300,000. Once councilman claimed it was “delusional” to believe anything different than the “Confederate states had as their primary aim the preservation of a way of life in which enslaved humans.” No, Councilman, your statement is a rewrite of history. There were those who wanted to preserve slavery, but Lee was not one...

    After years of debate, Yale University announced Saturday it will change the name of a residential college that honors a 19th century alumnus and former U.S. vice president who was an ardent supporter of slavery. Yale trustees said the Ivy League university is renaming Calhoun College after trailblazing computer scientist Grace Murray Hopper, a mathematician who earned Yale degrees in the 1930s, invented a pioneering computer programming language and became a Navy rear admiral. Yale said it was the final decision in a controversy over former Vice President John C. Calhoun’s legacy that had simmered for years and boiled over...

As a collaborative project between the Restaurant Opportunities Center United (ROC United) and Presente.org, the Sanctuary Restaurant Movement seeks to not only create solidarity, but also to provide support and resources like job training and legal advice to individuals and their families impacted by hostile policies.
