    As if orders went out from a central director, nearly every major media outlet flat-out lied about President Trump's speech.When Sen. Bob Dole accepted the Republican nomination for president in 1996, his speech hit on the themes of “honor, decency and straight talk.” He proudly mentioned the great Republican Abraham Lincoln and explicitly denounced racism.“The Republican Party is broad and inclusive. It represents many streams of opinion and many points of view. But if there’s anyone who has mistakenly attached themselves to our party in the belief that we are not open to citizens of every race and religion, then...
  • Mayor Bill de Blasio bans all large gatherings in NYC through September EXCEPT Black Lives Matter protests, insisting the 'historic movement must be respected' as demonstrations haven't caused a spike in coronavirus

    New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said Thursday that he is banning all large gatherings in the city in a bid to stop the spread of coronavirus, but gave exception to Black Lives Matters protests insisting the ‘historic’ demonstrations must be respected. Speaking to CNN’s Wolf Blitzer Thursday night, de Blasio said the demonstrators’ calls for social justice and racial equality were too important to silence, considering more than a month of protests had not caused a spike in COVID-19 cases. While protests will be permitted to take place without push-back, de Blasio said that all other large events...

    The Washington Post proclaimed that President Trump attempted to “resuscitate his troubled reelection campaign by galvanizing white supporters” during Friday’s patriotic Mount Rushmore speech and asserted that he moved to secure the “legacy of white domination.” The Post’s Robert Costa and Philip Rucker, in a July 4 screed not labeled opinion, unloaded on President Trump’s July 3 speech and asserted that Trump is alienating Republicans who are apparently “unnerved” by his “unyielding push to preserve Confederate symbols and the legacy of white domination,” which was “crystallized by his harsh denunciation of the racial justice movement” during Friday’s speech:

She had stopped in Harlem to speak as his guest just months after her instrumental role in the Mississippi Freedom Democratic Party's historic challenge to unseat Mississippi's all-White, all-male delegation to the 1964 Democratic National Convention.

    A stupid costume choice at a Halloween party two years ago is front-page news in the newspaper of record in the capital city of the Empire? What on earth? ... I read it first with bemusement at the moral panic, and then finally, with horror over what we are doing to ourselves.... Honestly, what kind of white idiot shows up in blackface these days? Granted, this was 2018, but blackface was extremely taboo then. That’s what Schafer’s joke was about: how Megyn Kelly got herself in a world of trouble by suggesting that blackface was not that big a deal....

    WICHITA, Kan. -- Donors are pushing Kansas' higher education board to fire Wichita State University's president after he canceled a virtual speech by Ivanka Trump for its technical school's graduation. The Kansas Board of Regents scheduled a special meeting Wednesday to discuss what it called “personnel matters.” Its staff did not say more, but the meeting comes only two days after a former board member from Wichita said the regents should ask for President Jay Golden's resignation. Golden canceled Trump's speech after students and faculty protested. Students staged an impromptu rally Wednesday to support him. Steve Clark, the former regent...

    Manx Radio took Stu Peters off air after Wednesday's programme in which a black caller challenged him for writing "all lives matter" in an online forum. "I've had no more privilege in my life than you have. I'm a white man, you're a black man," he told Jordan Maguire. Manx Radio said it had referred the issue to the Communications Commission. Mr Peters declined to comment when contacted by the BBC. Manx Radio's managing director Chris Sully said: "Stu Peters will not be presenting the Late Show whilst an investigation takes place.

    A professor from the University of Central Florida is under investigation after he claimed 'white Americans and white culture were under siege' while making several racist stereotypes about black people in the country. The announcement from UCF came just a day after the associate psychology professor, Charles Negy, took to Twitter to offer his comments surrounding the mythological 'black privilege.' He said in a Wednesday tweet: 'If African Americans as a group, had the same behavioral profile as Asian Americans (on average, performing the best academically, having the highest income, committing the lowest crime, etc.), would we still be proclaiming...

    Serena Williams' Reddit co-founder husband Alexis Ohanian has resigned from the company's board because he is a 'father who needs to be able to answer his black daughter when she asks: 'What did you do?'' The tech founder, who shares two-year-old daughter Alexis Olympia Ohanian, Jr. with his tennis star wife, made the shock announcement in a video uploaded to his Instagram page around midday Friday. In the footage, he says he is stepping down 'for me, for my family, and for my country' so that his seat on the board can be filled by a black candidate and so...

    Presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden will deliver remarks in Philadelphia on Tuesday addressing the protests across the country sparked by George Floyd’s death. Biden will speak in front of a pooled press on “the civil unrest facing communities across America” Tuesday morning, his campaign announced in a release Monday night. The former vice president had met with African American community leaders in Wilmington, Del., on Monday and said he would be making national speeches on the future and direction of the country. “I need help and advice as we go on as to what I should and shouldn’t be doing,”...

    As Israelis are notoriously loud, it is perhaps in their own interest to continue wearing masks to stop the spread of the virus and "lower the curve." Tiny particles escaping from a person's mouth when they speak loudly – which may contain the coronavirus – can stay in the air from eight up to as much as 14 minutes, a study has found. The study was published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America.

This article is not the one you should give to your friend or relative or coworker who shared the video. This is an article for those who recognized the video as rife with conspiracy theories, misinformation and false claims, those who are frustrated and unsettled and disappointed in who they see sharing it, and those who want to know what to say when they see it. It explains why the video is successful, how to recognize propaganda like this...

    Retired federal judge Janice Rogers Brown warned Tuesday about the perils of the mob that views politics as all important and ignores objective truth. President Donald Trump has had to contend with a fired-up “resistance” of political opposition that will not recognize his presidency as legitimate, Brown suggested. “Prior to the 2016 election, America had a cherished tradition of peacefully transferring power. No riots in the streets. No military coups. George Washington himself set the standard,” Brown said. “However, we now know elections have consequences only when the correct candidate is elected.” Brown, who served on the U.S. Court of...

    I am one of the many women Mike Bloomberg’s company tried to silence through nondisclosure agreements. The funny thing is, I never even worked for Bloomberg. But my story shows the lengths that the Bloomberg machine will go to in order to avoid offending Beijing. Bloomberg’s company, Bloomberg LP, is so dependent on the vast China market for its business that its lawyers threatened to devastate my family financially if I didn’t sign an NDA silencing me about how Bloomberg News killed a story critical of Chinese Communist Party leaders. It was only when I hired Edward Snowden’s lawyers in...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi defended her decision to rip up President Donald Trump's State of the Union address earlier this month, a dramatic move that was criticized by Republicans as being disrespectful and a "breach of decorum." "One of my disappointments is the fact that with all that we have done legislatively, whether its equal pay for equal work, raising the minimum wage, gun violence protection, issues that relate to our children, the list goes on. I thought, well, let's get attention on the fact that what he said here today was not true," Pelosi told CNN's Christiane Amanpour in...

But for me I see commonality.” He continued, “I think whether we are talking about gender inequality, or racism, or queer rights, or indigenous rights, or animal rights, we are talking about the fight...
