  • Rantz: Councilmember Gonzalez renews push to fire white Seattle police officers

    The Seattle City Council will renew its push to fire white officers within the Seattle Police Department. The move comes after a nearly 20% cut to the budget and a loss of nearly 200 officers from the department. The SPD has the lowest deployable rate of officers since 1990, as the city experiences a surge in violent crime, including a 26-year-high murder rate. We shouldn’t be firing anyone. Legal issues aside, the only practical way the council can fire white officers is to negotiate the right in the next contract. They’ll get their chance to in 2021. The Seattle Police...

    The FBI and local police are investigating an explosion early Saturday at a Los Angeles-area church that had been the target of protests for its anti-LGTBQ message.Officers responding around 4:30 a.m. initially thought a vandal had broken the windows of First Works Baptist Church in El Monte, said Lt. Christopher Cano of the city's police department. Officers then noticed smoke coming from inside, he told reporters at the scene.“Then we realized that the windows were not smashed, that they had actually blown out from some type of explosion," Cano said.
  • Joe Biden revokes Donald Trump's order banning 'critical race theory' and other diversity training which ex-president called 'un-American'

    Joe Biden revoked a Trump administration order that had banned federal agencies, contractors and recipients of federal funding from conducting certain diversity training. The order had targeted workplace training that explored systemic racism and privilege, including 'critical race theory,' which former President Donald Trump had deemed 'un-American' and potentially harmful to white workers. The Trump administration had said the order prohibited training that implies anyone is racist or sexist 'by virtue of his or her race, sex, and/or national origin.'

    WASHINGTON, DC – The selection of civil rights attorney Kristen Clarke as Assistant Attorney General for the Civil Rights Division of the Department of Justice provides a glimpse into the changes President-elect Biden plans for the Justice Department. Clarke has supported defunding police departments and is a proponent of Black Lives Matter. Clarke, the current President of the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law and former manager of the Civil Rights Bureau of the New York Department of Law, has previously claimed that black people have “superior physical and mental abilities.” On his campaign website, Biden posted his plan...
  • When The Left Refuses Service, They’re Preventing Violence. When The Right Denies Service, They’re Bigots

    One of the most shocking developments in the days following the latest Capitol riot has been the ease with which left-wing corporations and tech behemoths have been able to deny service to people on the right.This is surprising not because of some conservative delusion that the increasingly progressive corporate world is friendly to our views. We know better. No, this blatantly belief-based discrimination is astounding because of the holy war that erupts any time a conservative attempts to deny services to another person based on constitutionally protected and deeply-held religious beliefs.When the left refuses service due to an arbitrary standard...

    The civil-rights movement, led by the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. , helped deliver America from the historic sins of slavery and Jim Crow by forcing the nation to confront the full humanity of its black citizens. King’s words and actions glorified America by transfiguring its racial wound and revealing its redemptive promise. Yet today many black leaders have lost sight of King altogether and are aiding and abetting the crucifixion of their own people. Rather than hope, they see despair; rather than the Easter Sunday of true liberation, they offer the bleak Good Friday of never-ending misery. The history...

    Famed Boston Red Sox pitcher-turned-conservative commentator Curt Schilling said Tuesday that American International Group (AIG) had cancelled his insurance plan due to his "social media profile." "We will be just fine, but wanted to let Americans know that @AIGinsurance canceled our insurance due to my 'Social Media profile,'" Schilling said on Twitter. Schilling shared a screenshot purportedly showing an AIG employee telling him that while they appreciate that he's been a "long time AIG client since 2004" "it was a management decision that was made collectively between underwriting and marketing teams that could not be overturned."

    Social media giant Twitter frequently censors pro-life conservatives but is refusing to remove a tweet from communist China celebrating forcing women to have abortions. As LifeNews.com reported, the Chinese Communist government celebrated a decline in births Thursday in a region where it has aggressively persecuted minorities by forcing them to abort their unborn babies. Chinese Embassy in the U.S. treated the report as good news, even highlighting how its government’s “process of eradicating [religious] extremism” contributed to the declining birth rates. The Chinese Communist Party’s eradication “process” reportedly involves massive persecution of Uygur Muslims in the Xinjiang region by detaining...

    A flight attendants' union has called for members of the pro-Trump mob which stormed the Capitol on Wednesday to be banned from flights out of Washington, DC, amid concerns about their violent behaviour. Sara Nelson, international president of the Association of Flight Attendants-CWA, condemned the "mob mentality behavior" protestors had demonstrated aboard flights into Washington on Wednesday ahead of the protests, and said the violence pro-Trump supporters had demonstrated at the Capitol meant they should be prevented from boarding flights home.

    The Coming Assault on Religious FreedomModern-day Thomas Beckets are needed to stop it.Joe Biden’s view of religious freedom is exceedingly narrow. Where religious freedom conflicts with the goals of liberalism, he supports suppressing it. He has promised Planned Parenthood that he will resume the Obama-era harassment of the Little Sisters of the Poor and other religious groups if they don’t conform to his mandates. During the campaign, he opposed “broad exemptions” for those who resist his view of LGBTQ rights.One of Biden’s transition officials is Chai Feldblum, who has spoken openly of her opposition to religious freedom. She has written,...

    MILWAUKEE -- Prosecutors have charged a 17-year-old Illinois teen accused of shooting three people during a protest in southeastern Wisconsin this summer with violating curfew that night. Kyle Rittenhouse was charged in August with multiple counts, including reckless and intentional homicide, endangerment and being a minor in possession of a firearm. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported that prosecutors added violating curfew the night of the shootings to the list of charges on Monday. The offense is a civil citation punishable by forfeiture.

    Vote reparations would empower us to replace oppressive institutions with life-affirming structures of equality.Black votes in this country are worth less than white votes. Joe Biden won the Electoral College because Black voters in Atlanta, Detroit, Milwaukee, and Philadelphia turned out in significant numbers. But even with overwhelming Black support—94 percent of Detroit voted for Biden!—the outcomes in Georgia, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania were worryingly close.One core problem is the Electoral College. Wyoming, which has just 580,000 residents and is 93 percent white, gets three electors because of its two senators and one representative in the House. By comparison, Georgia’s...

    The Supreme Court said Thursday that federal agents can be forced to pay out of their own pocket for religious liberty violations. The decision allows three Muslim men to seek monetary damages from FBI agents who allegedly placed them on the no-fly list as retaliation for turning down requests to become informants. Justice Clarence Thomas delivered the opinion for a unanimous Court. "This is a good decision that makes it easier to hold the government accountable when it violates Americans' religious liberties," said Lori Windham of the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty, which filed a brief supporting the plaintiffs.
