    There was a time not too long ago when Bol Gai Deng was getting interviewed by many big hitters in mainstream media. His story is one of the most compelling that you’ll hear, one that could easily be made into a Hollywood biopic. At the age of seven, he was taken by the mujahideen from his village in South Sudan—not yet an independent nation—and entered into a life of slavery for nearly a decade. He escaped on a passing train one day when tending to his captors’ cattle and made his way to America.Deng has experienced true persecution, not the...

    The father of Michael Brown and other activists from Ferguson, Missouri, are demanding financial support from Black Lives Matter after the organization revealed it raised over $90 million last year. Michael Brown Sr., whose son was fatally shot by a white police officer in August 2014, along with the other activists that helped propel the movement, want $20 million from the group to help their community. “Where is all that money going?” Brown Sr. asked in a Tuesday press release from The International Black Freedom. “How could you leave the families who are helping the community without any funding?”

    Representative Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) said Tuesday on CNN’s “Tonight” that the Republican Party was engaged in “a war on black people as it relates to voting.” Anchor Don Lemon said, “The Supreme Court is hearing arguments today that could weaken voting rights in Arizona. Major push nationwide to make it harder for people to vote. What does this mean particularly for black voters?” Jackson Lee said, “Well, I think tragically we have not had this historic opposition to our rights since slavery, during the Jim Crow days and of course the harshness of the 1960s. The tragedy of this...

    Portland City Council this week will consider new rules to help people better protect their businesses from vandalism and damage. It would make it easier to add security lights and gates. But people in the Pearl District are looking for more protection to stop the damage vandals are doing in their downtown neighborhood.

    YOUNGSTOWN — An East Palestine man is jailed in connection with more than a dozen religious statues vandalized at the Basilica of Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church, in what Diocese of Youngstown Bishop David Bonnar described as a senseless act. Police Friday afternoon arrested the 20-year-old in connection with a felony count of vandalism for the early morning incident. After the damage was reported, two patrol officers recalled dealing Thursday morning with a suspicious man in two car break-ins on East Commerce Street, a short distance from the church, said Capt. Rod Foley, chief of detectives. That man was...

    When Race Doesn’t MatterIt was only after I had begun Basic Training, courtesy of an offer from the U.S. Army I could not refuse, that I met my first black man. Well, maybe a dozen of them, actually. I felt an immediate rapport with them, owing to a sense of shared suffering. For those of you whom God may have spared, I am referring to nine nightmarish weeks spent slogging through the snow and the ice and the mud of Ft. Dix, New Jersey while demented Drill Sergeants screamed obscenities at us. And the closeness, of course, would only deepen...

    Ferguson activists demanded $20 Million from Black Lives Matter and said the organization of not providing enough aid to local activist groups in Ferguson, Missouri and other places around the country where racial justice protests have occurred. “Today, we hold Black Lives Matter accountable,” said Tory Russell in a video posted to twitter. Russel is a self-described “frontline organizer” and “freedom fighter” from Ferguson, the place where protests erupted following the 2014 death of Michael Brown by the hands of police. “What kind of movement are we building when we say ‘Black lives matter’ but the freedom fighters and the...
  • Al Sharpton's Hoary Heart-to-Heart with Kamala

    Liberals have spent the last five years fulminating about how former President Donald Trump reserved the bulk of his national TV interviews for Fox News. They fiercely protested the protective bubble Trump received from Sean Hannity or Jeanine Pirro. So what did they say when Vice President Kamala Harris granted her first national interview as the veep to Rev. Al Sharpton for his weekend MSNBC program? Hannity and Pirro aren't known for racial hoaxes or virulent anti-Semitism. No one would really consider Sharpton a journalist. He's still running around lobbying with his group, the National Action Network. Last year, he...

    More than 40 people arrested in Los Angeles County for curfew violations during last summer's mass protests have alleged in a new lawsuit that the curfews were an unconstitutional and coordinated tactic by the county, several local cities and their police forces to stifle legitimate political speech against police violence. The lawsuit alleges a slate of violations of the protesters' constitutional and civil rights, assault and battery, false imprisonment, negligence and the intentional infliction of emotional distress, and calls the curfew a "tool of oppression" used by government actors to suppress the truth and shore up false narratives about American...

    Some things in life are constant. My entire life America has been one of those things. Despite Vietnam, Watergate, Iran Contra, the Dot Com bubble, 9/11, Hurricane Katrina, the Great Recession and more, the United States has been constant. America, rife with internal conflicts, differing opinions and more than a few lying politicians was always the land of freedom, the land of opportunity, and the land of endless possibilities. America and freedom were like the earth below us and the sun and the stars above… constants. But constant is relative… Wait long enough and the earth will be gone. Wait...

    Radicals in Congress are frustrated and angry at President Joe Biden over the Senate parliamentarian’s decision to exclude the minimum wage increase from the $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief bill passed by the House on Saturday. And the radicals believe it’s only going to get worse.Many of the bills being considered in the House now may never see the light of day in the Senate because of legislative rules that have developed over centuries and were designed to protect the rights of the minority. Democrats didn’t mind those rules when they were in the minority. But now that they could get...
  • Mayor Jim Kenney: Philadelphia Needs More Gun Control

    Mayor Jim Kenney (D) is responding to Philadelphia’s surge in gun violence by pushing for more gun control laws. The Philadelphia Inquirer reports “294 people” have already been shot in Philadelphia this year, with 76 individuals dying. Kenney blames the violence on what he views as a lack of gun control. He said, “We must stop the unabated flow of guns into our city.” Kenney is interested in laws requiring stolen guns to be reported within a set period of time, licensing requirements for gun owners, and limits on the number of guns Philadelphia residents can purchase. He claimed such...

    EUGENE, OR – Online chatter that has been ongoing on Twitter throughout February showcases that Antifa-inspired anarchist groups are planning demonstrations for March 6th in Eugene, Oregon – and possibly in other locations as well. A number of self-proclaimed anti-capitalist/anarchist groups are coordinating “a workshop in radical organization and action,” and “march” on March 6th that is purportedly going to amass at Monroe Park at 3:00 p.m. Then attendees will “bloc up and march,” at 6:30 p.m. that same evening.

    ....Maher then chimed in that he’d been hearing from parents – leftist parents – about the relentless anti-white activism the New York schools, both public and private, are pushing.....“As black bodies drop like flies around us by violent white hands.” There is racist problems in this country. But this is hyperbole, and this is making people crazy. It was with those words that the amazing thing happened: Maher’s audience applauded. Over the years, Maher’s audiences have always been trained seals, reliably clapping at every hard left, anti-George Bush, anti-Trump, pro-Obama statement the host utters. But this time, he said that...

    Rioters vandalized several buildings in downtown Portland, Ore., on Saturday night in one of the largest protests in weeks, according to reports. Around 150 people marched through Portland’s Pearl District in what’s called a "direct action" event, smashing windows of businesses like Starbucks, Chipotle, Umpqua Bank and Urban Pantry and tagging them with graffiti, KION-TV in Portland reported. One vandal wrote "banks suck" on Umpqua Bank’s façade, a Portland Tribune reporter tweeted. The marchers were protesting the Biden administration’s immigration policy and the federal agency Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). The White House received progressive pushback this month when it...

    Social movements tap into our most primitive emotions, obscuring the complexities of sociopolitical problems. Reason is traded for ideological fervor and skepticism is swapped with religious dogma. Such was the case in 2020 in the wake of several high-profile cases of alleged police brutality involving black victims. Across the US and Western countries worldwide, activists and average citizens alike vigorously protested against a perceived (but empirically refuted) “epidemic of racist police killings.” A new survey commissioned by Skeptic Research Center reveals the extent to which the public is misinformed on the issue of police violence. Participants across the political spectrum...
