    On Friday morning, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton suggested that President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee, Judge Brett Kavanaugh, would bring back slavery if he is confirmed to the nation's highest court. "Let me say a word about the nomination of Judge Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court," Clinton told the American Federation of Teachers (AFT) at its national convention. "This nomination holds out the threat of devastating consequences for workers rights, civil rights, LGBT rights, women’s rights — including those to make our own health decisions." "It is a blatant attempt by this administration to shift the balance of...

    Leftist ideologues live in an alternate universe, a product of their hallucinations of an America that does not exist except in their own demented thinking. The latest manifestation of this delusional perception is Eugene Robinson's opinion piece in the Washington Post on July 5. Here is some of what he said: Racism is a feature of the Trump administration, not a bug[.] ... We have not seen such overt racism from a president since Woodrow Wilson imposed Jim Crow segregation in Washington and approvingly showed "The Birth of a Nation," director D.W. Griffith's epic celebration of the Ku Klux Klan,...

    Former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton implied that the potential confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court would bring the United States back to the times of slavery during a speech on Friday. “I used to worry that they wanted to turn the clock back to the 1950s. Now, I worry they want to turn it back to the 1850s. These will be urgent fights. Stakes could not be higher,” she said during her speech at the American Federation of Teachers. “This nomination holds out the threat of devastating consequences for workers’ rights, civil rights, LGBT rights, women’s rights, including...

    A man I have known since grade school changed his name, years ago, to an Arabic one. He told me he rejected Christianity as "the white man's religion that justified slavery." He argued Africans taken out of that continent were owed reparations. "From whom?" I asked. Arab slavers took more Africans out of Africa and transported them to the Middle East and to South America than European slavers took out of Africa and brought to North America. Arab slavers began taking slaves out of Africa beginning in the ninth century -- centuries before the European slave trade -- and continued...

    The Saudisation policy of Crown Prince Prince Mohammed bin Salman (MbS) has coincided with an "expat exodus" and a drop in foreign investment. •Saudi businesses are complaining that locals don't want to do "low-status" jobs that many expats worked — creating a real problem for the economy. •In November, a paper by the Institute of International Finance projected capital outflows in 2017 at $101 billion, 15% of GDP. •Fortunately, a recent rebound in oil prices has temporarily rescued the ailing Saudi Arabian economy, but it will not be a long-term solution....

    Could a gay hairdresser from New York City set off a mass exodus from the Democratic Party? A hashtag and a growing wave (not a blue one) of videos on YouTube and Facebook signal that the Democrats finally have gotten too crazy for at least some of their formerly faithful supporters. Celina Farber of the Epoch Times catalogues a growing wave of revolt against Democrats’ embrace of socialism and no borders and general insanity under the rubric of #Walkaway: Once upon a time, I was a liberal. Well, to be honest, less than a year ago, I was still a...

    CTH has tracked this issue so closely through the years it often feels futile for another reminder.  However, with the insufferable political games surfacing, yet again, over the issue of illegal immigrants and children – perhaps it is worth another visit. Understanding The Big Racket. Massive illegal immigration is supported by both sides of the professional political machine.  There are few issues more unifying for the K-Street purchased voices of DC politicians than keeping the borders open and the influx of illegal aliens as high as possible.  The U.S. Chamber of Commerce pays politicians to keep this system in place. All Democrats and most...

    In their never-ending effort to Balkanize America and buy black votes by stealing from all taxpayers, including black ones, the Democrats are reviving their call for reparations for slavery. After all, with blacks waking up to the fact that Democrats are doing nothing for them, a new bribe appears to be necessary. Given that there are no living Americans who were slaves or who owned slaves, it's clear that the idea of reparations has nothing to do with justice or concern for blacks; it's just another political effort to bribe voters with other people's money – just like Paul Ryan...

    One of South Carolina’s oldest cities may be apologizing for its prolific role in the U.S. slave trade, according to city documents. Charleston’s city council will consider a resolution “recognizing, denouncing and apologizing” for the role the South Carolina port city played in the slave trade, according to the council’s agenda. The formal apology will be considered for the first time on Juneteenth, a day aimed at celebrating the abolition of slavery. The resolution — which is scheduled for next Tuesday’s meeting — also says the city will commit to continuing to “pursue initiatives that honor the contributions of those...

    Spain laid claim to the Island of Jamaica from the time Columbus landed there in 1494. In 1503, Columbus was shipwrecked there for a year. In 1655, Jamaica was captured by British Admiral William Penn, the father of Pennsylvania’s founder. Jamaica was too far from England to defend, so the inhabitants turned to privateers, freebooters, buccaneers and pirates for protection. The likes of Blackbeard, Calico Jack and Captain Henry Morgan, namesake of the rum, attacked Spanish ships and settlements, then returned to Jamaica with their booty. The skull pirate flag, called the “Jolly Roger,” was adapted from the flag of...

    When you drove down California Street through San Francisco's Richmond District in the 1970s, one house made a stronger impression than most others. This was not because the house was an architectural marvel. It was a small, cookie-cutter Victorian. No, it stood out because it was painted black. From sidewalk to rooftop, every inch was coated in a uniform darkness. Its owner in those days was Anton LeVey, author of "The Satanic Bible"; and, years later, when it was about to be torn down, the San Francisco Chronicle would refer to it as "the building that once housed San Francisco's...

    TUCSON, Ariz. - A disturbing discovery near an abandoned plant off I-19. A documentary crew is shown an underground bunker believed to be used for human trafficking of children. Tucson Police tells us that they are not ruling out the possibility that it was used for human trafficking, but they say they believe the bunker is most likely being used as a homeless camp. Former Navy Seal Craig Sawyer is currently filming "Contraland" to expose the dark side of child sex slavery. Sawyer tells KGUN 9 a homeless advocacy group called his crew after they discovered the underground bunker --...

    Anti-abolitionists once called slavery America’s “peculiar institution” as a euphemism to shield the American public from a true understanding of its diabolical nature. Similarly, abortion activists use language like “choice” and “women’s health” to avoid deep moral questions about whether an unborn child should have the right to life. While many might blanch at such a striking comparison, the reality is that the similarities between our tragic legacy of slavery and our continued government-sanctioned support for abortion aren’t all that different. As a rule of thumb, Westerners tend to avoid any attempt to compare today’s issues with the atrocities of human...

    In the US, we are taught an extremely limited view of the history of slavery. This narrow and uninformed view has slavery beginning in 1619 (when slaves first arrived in North American) and ending when slavery was abolished in the US in 1865. People that don’t look beyond the indoctrination think that slavery is inherently racial and limited to the Americas. However, the truth about slavery is much, much more complicated. Below are five important things you may not know about slavery. Slavery Started At The Beginning Of Civilization Some historians believe slavery started in the 18th century B.C., about...

    Democrats have yet to reach a consensus on what message might resonate most favorably with voters this Fall. Citing a poll finding that 60% of voters don't believe the Mueller probe has uncovered any crimes, Democratic strategist Jesse Ferguson suggested that "we need to focus our message on the successes of the investigation. Granted, there hasn't yet been any evidence of Russian collusion, but several people have been indicted for other crimes." Almost all of these "other crimes" involve lying to federal agents. The one seemingly significant crime not in this category is the charge that Paul Manafort engaged in...

    State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman called his Sri Lankan girlfriend his “brown slave” and wanted her to refer to him as “Master,” the woman says. Harvard-educated activist writer Tanya Selvaratnam told the New Yorker magazine that her yearlong affair with Schneiderman “was a fairytale that became a nightmare” — and quickly escalated into violence in the bedroom, even as he begged for threesomes. “Sometimes, he’d tell me to call him Master, and he’d slap me until I did,” Selvaratnam said. see also Ex-girlfriend says Schneiderman beat, choked her after night of drinking Ex-girlfriend says Schneiderman beat, choked her after night...

    "Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness" are the rights singled out by Thomas Jefferson as those most deserving the protection of government as he and his fellow founders sought to recover the ‘rights of Englishmen’ of which they felt they were being deprived. This makes it more than ironic that those rights no longer exist in the country of England, where two very young children no longer have life, after their parents had their liberty taken away and were deprived of the happiness that preserving their children’s lives had brought. Everyone knows that resources are finite and demands can...
