    A white Starbucks barista probably violated company policy when she handed over a free coffee to a black man who demanded it in the name of race “reparations.” Bryan Sharpe, who goes by “Hotep Jesus” on Twitter, filmed himself going into a Starbucks store to demand a “free coffee” because they’re “racist.” __________________________________________________ Starbucks is racist — Hotep Jesus 🧠 (@VibeHi) April 15, 2018 __________________________________________________ “I heard ya’ll was racist, so I came to get my free coffee,” Sharpe says in the video to the white barista taking his order. “I saw that!” the girls responds. “I heard you...
  • Pelosi Falsely Claims Trump Fired Mueller, ‘So Furious I Can Barely Write’

    If you’re not a fan of California Democrat Rep. Nancy Pelosi, watching her diminishing returns as House minority leader — particularly on camera — can be rather humorous. I mean, this is someone who once criticized President Donald Trump for not visiting countries in alphabetical order (I think she may have been trying to make a funny, but even Andy Kaufman never elicited crickets like that) and constantly stammers through even the simplest questions at news conferences. Pelosi’s foibles are funny in their own little way, albeit … well, somewhat indicative of someone reaching retirement age. However, they’ve mostly been...

    He was awake when most of the country was asleep, cultivating a loyal following while sharing his fascination with the unexplained on his nighttime paranormal-themed show. For the better part of two decades, longtime late-night radio personality Art Bell was his own producer, engineer and host of his show, “Coast to Coast AM.” He later launched his own satellite radio program from his Pahrump home after retiring from full-time hosting duties in 2003. On the airwaves, Bell captivated listeners with his fascination for the unexplained, such as UFOs, alien abductions and crop circles. He died Friday at his home at...

    Veteran Hollywood film director Steven Spielberg says the next star of one of his most iconic characters, Indiana Jones, should be played by a woman. Speaking to The Sun as his latest film Ready Player One hits the cinemas, Spielberg said that although it would risk anger from longtime fans of the Indiana Jones franchise, it is time the explorer took on “a different form.” “We’d have to change the name from Jones to Joan,” he said. “And there would be nothing wrong with that.” Ford, 75, first played Indiana Jones in 1981’s Raiders of the Lost Ark and reprised...

    53 shares A The Washington Post reports tonight: “Special counsel Robert S. Mueller III informed President Trump’s attorneys last month that he is continuing to investigate the president but does not consider him a criminal target at this point, according to three people familiar with the discussions.” You’re going to hear a lot about this story, and much of what you hear is going to focus on its secondary details. Among them, that Mueller is reportedly thinking of writing separate reports about the various charges and those reports could be very damaging. Do not be misled. Yes, the story goes...

    A London-based lawyer was ordered to serve 30 days in prison after a federal judge Tuesday handed down the first sentence in special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election. Alex van der Zwaan, 33, a son-in-law of a prominent Russian-based banker, pleaded guilty Feb. 20 to lying to the FBI about his contacts in September and October of 2016 with a business associate of onetime Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and with Manafort’s deputy, former Trump aide Rick Gates. Prosecutors said van der Zwaan also destroyed emails the special counsel had...

    Thank you to Rasmussen for the honest polling. Just hit 50%, which is higher than Cheatin’ Obama at the same time in his Administration. Check out the fact that you can’t get a job at ratings challenged @CNN unless you state that you are totally anti-Trump? Little Jeff Zuker, whose job is in jeopardy, is not having much fun lately. They should clean up and strengthen CNN and get back to honest reporting! The Fake News Networks, those that knowingly have a sick and biased AGENDA, are worried about the competition and quality of Sinclair Broadcast. The “Fakers” at CNN,...

    om Perez, chairman of the Democratic National Committee, joins MSNBC's MTP Daily to discuss the citizenship question being added to the 2020 census. Guest host Katy Tur asked Perez shouldn't it matter who is a citizen of this country, in terms of representation, and who is not. Perez said trying to figure out who and who is not a citizen is a "scare tactic" and called it "voter suppression" to only county U.S. citizens in the census. He said not counting non-citizens will hurt "funding formulas." (snip) They want to change it to count the number of U.S. citizens so...

    Hillary Clinton’s trip to India is evoking memories from her failed 2016 bid for president, as the Democrat makes headlines for blaming racism and misogyny for her loss while taking stumbles in front of the cameras. During an appearance in India over the weekend, Clinton claimed she lost the 2016 presidential race in part because white women didn’t stand up to the men in their lives pressuring them to vote for Donald Trump. “We do not do well with white men and we don’t do well with married, white women,” Clinton said at a conference in Mumbai, India. “And part...

    WASHINGTON – A federal judge Donald Trump once denigrated for his “Mexican” heritage handed a big legal victory to the president on Tuesday by green-lighting his border wall with Mexico. US District Judge Gonzalo Curiel ruled in favor of the Trump Administration in lawsuits that challenged the environmental waivers for the wall granted by the Department of Homeland Security. The Trump administration praised the legal victory and touted the effectiveness of border walls in stopping drugs and people from illegally crossing into the United States. “Simply put – walls work,” the Department of Homeland Security said in a statement. “(DHS)...

    A federal judge dismissed all charges against Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, his two sons and another man on Monday after accusing prosecutors of willfully withholding evidence from Bundy’s lawyers. U.S. District Judge Gloria Navarro cited "flagrant prosecutorial misconduct" in her decision to dismiss all charges against the Nevada rancher and three others. "The court finds that the universal sense of justice has been violated," Navarro said. “Either the government lied or [it’s actions were] so grossly negligent as to be tantamount to lying." - Judge Andrew Napolitano Bundy's supporters cheered as he walked out of court a free man, hugging...
