    NBC Bay Area ^ | Riya Bhattacharjee
    Things got a little heated Monday when a group of young immigrants confronted House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi at a pro-DACA press conference in San Francisco. Several dozen young immigrants shouted down the top House Democrat, following her recent conversations with President Donald Trump over the future of a program that grants many of them legal status. "We are immigrant youth, undocumented and unafraid," they chanted, taking over a scheduled press conference Pelosi, along with Reps. Barbara Lee and Jared Huffman, organized to call for the immediate passage of the Dream Act, a federal proposal that offered many of the...
  • Campus Chaos: Daily Shout-Downs for a Week

    National Review ^ | October 12, 2017 | Stanley Kurtz
    The campus free-speech crisis is escalating. Last night’s disruption of Charles Murray’s speech at the University of Michigan Ann Arbor means that every working day for the past week has seen a significant shout-down. Disruptions are coming at a substantially higher rate than in the second semester of last academic year. The targets are also expanding. Now, in addition to suppressing visiting conservatives like Charles Murray, disruptors are silencing liberal speakers, university presidents, and teachers in their classrooms. The failure to properly discipline shout-downs of conservative speakers has licensed attacks on any event that demonstrators may choose to squelch.
  • Volunteers Beaten, Raped, Shot While Delivering Aid After Mexican Earthquakes

    Gunmen waylaid a group of volunteers bringing aid to earthquake victims in Mexico, shooting one, raping another and beating several, all for $2,000 and a few cellphones. The group of Catholic youth volunteers left Mexico City in three pickup trucks loaded with food and relief aid for communities affected by the earthquakes in Oaxaca Tuesday morning, but a group of unidentified gunmen intercepted them and shot up their cars, wounding one of the volunteers, according to Siame. The gunmen raped one of the girls, beat one of the young men so severely that he almost died, and left with the...

    First, by now the NFL’s #TakeAKnee controversy is probably already growing long in the tooth and so I apologize if I’m belaboring it. What is below is fairly important, though, as it’s a hell of a good response to the Michael Bennetts, Kenny Vaccaros and Marshawn Lynches of the world. And second, another hell of a good response was given by Heather Mac Donald at City Journal on Monday. Mac Donald looked through the FBI’s recently-released crime statistics and found scant evidence to support the underlying cause for #TakeAKnee. As in… Contrary to the Black Lives Matter narrative, the police...

    Former Boise State running back Jay Ajayi has looked forward to his upcoming game for quite some time, and there is a little added incentive — his own Twitter emoji. Ajayi and the Dolphins face the Saints in London at 7:30 a.m. MT Sunday. He was born in London, but moved to the United States when he was 7 years old. ....Ajayi now also has a special emoji honoring the visit. Twitter users who use “#JayTrain” will trigger a little caricature of the dreadlocked Pro Bowler. He is the first NFL player to have his own international Twitter emoji....

    A family of three was hospitalized Saturday after being attacked by an adult and eight teens at Six Flags Great America after members of the larger group apparently cut in line and were using foul language when the family exchanged words with them, according to Gurnee police. Gurnee police Officer Daniel Ruth, the incident's lead investigator, said the family members — a 51-year-old man, 50-year-old woman and a 12-year-old boy — all were transported to an area hospital by a Gurnee Fire Department ambulance with injuries that were not life-threatening. Police arrested Gregory Battle, 18, of Waukegan, who was being...

    Variety ^ | September 27, 2017 | Jem Aswad
    Rapper Young Thug was arrested in Georgia on Saturday for one count of marijuana possession and tinted front windows, a representative for the Brookhaven Police confirmed to Variety. The rep confirmed that the rapper — real name: Jeffrey Lamar Williams — is facing felony charges although he was unable to provide further details at press time. It seems likely the stiff charge is related to Thug’s 2015 arrest after a police raid on his home in Sandy Springs, Georgia, that saw him charged with felony marijuana and cocaine possession and three counts of felony gun possession. All except the marijuana...

    The Denver Broncos have had 19 players arrested in the last seven seasons, the most in the NFL, according to data collected by USA Today. In all, there have been 321 arrests of NFL players since the end of the 2009 season. The charges range all over the board, including things as minor as driver's license violations to charges much more serious, including Aaron Hernandez' arrest for murder. In many cases the charges were later dropped. Here are the number of arrests for each team over the last seven years. You can see the entire arrest database over at USA...
  • Cath Cauc: With No Recourse Against Ecclesial Injustice, Prof. Seifert Turns to Legal Proceedings

    The recent dismissal of Professor Josef Seifert – the prominent Catholic philosopher who has been punished by his ordinary, Archbishop Francisco Javier Martínez Fernández of Granada, Spain, for publishing polite questions with regard to Amoris Laetitia – has provoked an international and just sense of indignation. Among the growing list of public commentators on this incident are: Bishop Athanasius Schneider; Professor Claudio Pierantoni; Dr. John Haas, and Professor Paolo Pasqualucci. The story also has found its way into an article by Ross Douthat at the New York Times. In addition, today we have published a new commentary written by Father...

    A St. Louis Post-Dispatch reporter is among the 80 people arrested by St. Louis police late Sunday after protests in the city turned combative. The newspaper reports on its website that Mike Faulk was covering the protest and its aftermath when he was taken into custody as police cleared a street early Monday. The report doesn’t say if Faulk has been charged or released. City police say they will release a statement later.

    Hundreds of riot police mobilized in downtown St. Louis overnight, arresting more than 80 people and seizing weapons amid reports of property damage and vandalism following another day of peaceful protests over a former police officer's acquittal in the killing of a black man. The arrests late Sunday came after demonstrators ignored orders to disperse, police said. "I'm proud to tell you the city of St. Louis is safe and the police owned tonight," Interim Police Chief Lawrence O'Toole said at a news conference early Monday.

    ST. LOUIS • Former St. Louis police officer Jason Stockley was found not guilty Friday of murdering a man while on duty. St. Louis Circuit Judge Timothy Wilson's highly anticipated verdict found a white former St. Louis police officer not guilty of first-degree murder and amed criminal action in the December 2011 shooting death of a black drug suspect after a high-speed pursuit and crash. Activists, with support from some of the city's black clergy, had pledged disruptive protests ahead of St. Louis Circuit Judge Timothy Wilson's verdict.

    Washington Times ^ | Thursday, August 31, 2017 | Mark Mix
    The recent acquittal of four Boston Teamsters charged with attempting to extort the producers of the popular “Top Chef” television show is the latest illustration of a loophole in federal law that permits organized labor to engage in acts of extortion that would be illegal if anyone else tried it. Since a 1973 Supreme Court decision exempted union extortion and racketeering actions from the Hobbs Act, so long as the object being extorted constituted a legitimate union objective, union thugs have been getting a free pass on violence and threats such as what occurred in June 2014. Perhaps inspired by...
  • Public School Teachers Behind Violent Antifa Group

    Public school teachers are behind a leading far-left militant group that is part of the Antifa network that federal officials say is committing “domestic terrorist violence.” By Any Means Necessary, which has played a key role in riots in Berkeley, Sacramento and elsewhere, has dozens of public school teachers among its members, including among its most prominent leaders. The FBI and Department of Homeland Security began paying closer attention to Antifa groups in general after BAMN and other extremists started a riot and attacked marchers at a white nationalist rally in Sacramento last July, Politico reported on Friday. The Sacramento...

    The Austin based Anti-fascists group, Red Guards Austin, has been gaining prominence in the Texas Antifa movement. As we have previously reported, they are a self described autonomous Marxist-Leninist-Maoist collective and their website contains multiple reports on their confrontational and often armed demonstrations. They also openly advocate for violent revolution against capitalism. “we must seriously take up the task not only of self-defense on the personal and community level, but we must also struggle to unite all genuine antifascists behind the necessity of revolution. Revolution means the long fight for communism and nothing less.” In a recent blog titled...
