    BUTLER COUNTY, Pa. — Dozens of cars belonging to people who headed to Washington, D.C., Wednesday morning had their tires slashed in Butler County. The cars were parked in the Clearview Mall parking lot after the group boarded buses. Zach Sheerer said he organized the trip, and two buses with more than 100 people went to the U.S. Capitol. Their intent was to watch President Donald Trump’s speech and support him. Sheerer said once the speech wrapped up, things turned sour and protesters started storming the Capitol. “We were on the steps there, pretty close to the front doors to...

    Fox News’s Tucker Carlson began his Election Eve program on Monday with a single image from President Trump’s rally in Butler, Pennsylvania, over the weekend. While he said the picture does not predict how the race will turn out, it is the perfect metaphor for the 2020 election the state of the U.S. “Butler is like a lot of places you will find in this country once you head inland from the coasts,” he said. “It’s a former industrial town, the made Pullman railcars there for many years, but it’s been losing population for decades. They still have nice people...

    Riverside, a liberal Protestant church known for its history of social-justice advocacy, has hosted world leaders such as Nelson Mandela,Martin Luther King Jr., Desmond Tutu and Bill Clinton. “I know that this church is begging for new life,” said Dr. Butler, 45 years old. “That process of resurrection involves some dying. This is what we believe in our Christian tradition.” One-on-one, Dr. Butler is witty and self-deprecating, and her sermons tend to be about 10 minutes shorter than those of her predecessors, congregants say.

    The last time, of course, was when WaPo used the unfortunate fact that Nixon took $100,000 bribe from Howard Hughes to bring down a popularly elected government, Deep State was directly involved in the person of Mark Feldt, #2 at the FBI who was angry at being passed over after Hoover.The key principle is, which players are involved, or rather, which sectors. Our saving grace is the fact that the Military have never been complicit, (though the 3rd time before last, the dark powers tried to use the Military as a pawn, but a Great American Hero, Marine General Smedley...

    About 3 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 22, 1951, John Douglas “Doug” Kinser was working in his clubhouse at the Butler Pitch and Putt just east of South Lamar Boulevard when he was confronted with the nose of a gun. “Five bullets from a small caliber gun pierced his body,” reported the Austin Statesman the next day. “Police said three bullets recovered were .25 caliber.” A handsome World War II veteran, Kinser, 33, was a popular golfer who also acted at the Austin Civic Theatre, which later evolved into Zach Theatre. Possible reasons for the brazen murder — some of them...

    Students at Indiana’s Butler University will soon learn “strategies for resistance” to oppose President Donald Trump. Students paying roughly $36,000 in tuition have signed up for a “Special Topics” class titled “Trumpism & U.S. Democracy.” The course, which begins in August and runs until December, explicitly charges the Republican with “perpetuating sexism, white supremacy, xenophobia, nationalism, nativism, and imperialism.” "This course explores why and how this happened, how Trump’s rhetoric is contrary to the foundation of the U.S. democracy, and what his win means for the future,” reads a description on Butler’s website, first reported Wednesday by The Heartland Institute....

    VATICAN CITY, July 1 (Reuters) - Former Pope Benedict says in his memoirs that no-one pressured him to resign but alleges that a "gay lobby" in the Vatican had tried to influence decisions, a leading Italian newspaper reported on Friday. The book, called "The Last Conversations," is the first time in history that a former pope judges his own pontificate after it is over. It is due to be published on Sept. 9. Citing health reasons, Benedict in 2103 became the first pope in six centuries to resign. He promised to remain "hidden to the world" and has been living...

    United Nations - CIA-Iraq chief weapons inspector Charles Duelfer, whose report cast doubt on Bush administration claims that Saddam Hussein was hiding weapons of mass destruction, was blocked from reaching that same conclusion in 1999-2000 by the Clinton White House. Before officially joining the CIA weapons hunt earlier this year, Duelfer spent more than 8 years hunting WMD at the United Nations, first for the noted Swede Rolf Ekeus, than the flamboyant Aussie Richard Butler. Butler, known for his repeated clashes with Iraq officials, was eventually forced out of his U.N. job by the French and Russian ambassadors in June...

    BOSTON (CBS) — Tom Brady won his fourth Lombardi Trophy and third Super Bowl MVP award Sunday night. But he wouldn’t have accomplished that without a clutch interception by undrafted rookie Malcolm Butler, who picked off Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson at the New England one-yard line with just seconds remaining in Super Bow XLIX to seal the victory for the Patriots. “I think there are a lot of people who are very deserving of this award,” Brady said Monday morning in Arizona as he collected his latest MVP trophy. As MVP, Brady also received a shiny new Chevy truck. While...

    Steven F. Hayward, Paul Kengor, Craig Shirley and Kiron K. Skinner are Ronald Reagan historians. One cold evening in Dixon, Ill., in the early 1930s, a young man known as Dutch Reagan brought home two African American teammates from his Eureka College football team. The team was on the road, and the local hotels had refused the two black players. So Reagan invited them to spend the night and have breakfast with his family. In November 1952, in one of his final meetings as president of Hollywood’s Screen Actors Guild, Ronald Reagan called upon the entertainment industry to provide greater...

    Four Ronald Reagan historians have slammed the portrayal of former President Reagan in the movie "The Butler," saying that the 40th president's "attitudes toward race" as shown in the movie are inaccurate. They begin the article, "What 'The Butler' gets wrong about Ronald Reagan and race," published in The Washington Post, by recounting instances in Reagan's life when he decried racism and took a stand for the African-American community. While serving as president of the Screen Actors Guild, for example, "Ronald Reagan called upon the entertainment industry to provide greater employment for black actors." That position was controversial at the...

    When we first started getting messages at the Facebook page of “Reagan: The Movie,” objecting to our (allegedly) having chosen Jane Fonda to play the role of Nancy Reagan, we were mildly nonplussed. There were angry calls for boycotts, heartfelt pleas that we change our minds, and the occasional expletive from furious Vietnam veterans. At first we attempted to set the record straight. “Wrong movie,” our Facebook team would write back. “You’re thinking of a movie called ‘The Butler.’” But in time, the trickle turned into a flood and it seemed that no amount of corrections could stop the misunderstanding....

    President Barack Obama teared up watching "Lee Daniels' The Butler," a celluloid depiction of the US civil rights battle as seen by an African-American who served in the White House. "I teared up just thinking about not just the butlers who have worked here in the White House, but an entire generation of people who were talented and skilled, but because of Jim Crow, because of discrimination, there was only so far they could go," Obama said in an interview with radio host Tom Joyner. "And yet, with dignity and tenacity, they got up and worked every single day," said...

    The movie "Lee Daniels' The Butler" saw its weekend box office receipts plummet by nearly a third, from $24.6 million in its opening week to $17 million last week, after a storm of protests from Republican and veterans groups. The film depicts a White House butler who served eight presidents, and has come under fire for its portrayal of former President Ronald Reagan and his wife Nancy as being racially insensitive and for casting Jane Fonda as the first lady. Supporters of President Reagan and veterans groups especially have criticized the film, with some calling for boycotts. Though the film...

    How absolutely horrible! Oprah and Hollywood are going ga-ga over The Butler a project that is purposely filled with racist lies from beginning to end. What horrible people. As Eric Bolling pointed out today on The Five that the “real” Butler was born in Virginia. His mother was never raped by a white man. His father was never killed by a white man. That was just included as an extra jab at whitey. [video] There’s more… The real Butler’s life story was not bad enough so they had to fill it up with racist lies. Hoover.org reported: "Born in 1919,...

    Lee Daniels didn’t hold back during an interview with CNN’s Piers Morgan, saying that he believed President Obama’s term in office has revealed America’s “true colors” and it is still a racist and “angry” country. Daniels wasn’t directing the comment toward all Americans, but he certainly had a point. Morgan is known for asking the tough questions and when he pushed the director of “The Butler” to speak up on racism in America since Obama was elected, the interview took a powerful turn. “I think that people are angry that he’s president and I think that they are showing their...
