  • MUST WATCH: Avi Yemini steps in for woman violently arrested in Melbourne

    10/18/2021 1:07:45 AM PDT · by RomanSoldier19 · 10 replies ^ | | October 18, 2021 | y Avi Yemini
    Another shameful moment for Victoria Police caught on camera. On Saturday, police swarmed Princess Park in Carlton North, attempting to shut down a protest that never eventuated. Thousands of officers descended on the inner-city park confronting locals lawfully out enjoying the day. Sitting on a park bench with her husband drinking tea, one woman refusing to show ID police violently tackled to the ground. Mainstream media quickly photographed the woman as police had her pinned to the gravel, labelling her a protester. But none of them spoke to their alleged "protester". If they had, they'd know she was innocent.

    Morgan Wallen will miss the upcoming Country Music Association (CMA) Awards on November 10 despite being one of the top performing artists of 2021. The CMA barred Wallen from the event over the release of a video earlier this year, which showed Wallen calling a friend a racial slur after a late night of heavy drinking in Nashville. The CMA has also banned Wallen from winning any individual awards, though it allowed him to compete for awards honoring his work to avoid punishing any of Wallen’s collaborators.

    Christians will suffer because of what we believe. We must take the opportunity every single day, in every aspect of our lives, to demonstrate courage.What follows is adapted from a speech given at the Truth Be Told conference in Tennessee on Saturday, October 2.

Authorized as part of Operation Restore Hope, the mission goal was to gather intelligence that would lead to the capture of warlord Mohamed Farrah Aidid. This...

    Alan Jackson is opening up to fans about a disease he’s been battling for years. The 62-year-old country singer told the “Today” show that he’s been battling a “no cure” degenerative neurological condition called Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease for the better part of a decade. “It’s not going to kill me. It’s not deadly,” Jackson said about the disease he inherited from his father. “But it’s related (to) muscular dystrophy and Parkinson’s disease,” he added, detailing how CMT has cut into the “Chattahoochee” musician’s ability to perform live.

    A private tropical island and house in the Bahamas, with 20 acres of land, 1.3 acres of waterfront and two beaches — plus some major celebrity cachet — has hit the market for $35 million. The property, named L’île d’Anges, meaning Isle of Angels, lies in the Exumas island chain in crystal-clear waters and features a 6,500-square-foot house a stone’s throw from its beaches, lush, wild vegetation and palm groves. The island went on sale with Knight Frank on Monday. The island’s white-stucco mansion lies on its highest part and resembles an Ibizan farmhouse fused with local Bahamian elements.
  • Why is Progressive Nationalism so misunderstood?

    02/13/2021 8:15:28 AM PST · by ProgressingAmerica · 28 replies
    What is in a word definition? For example, when you say you love your country, what's embedded in that? What does that mean? For me, the 51 constitutions of the states and the U.S. Constitution come to mind. That's not at all what comes to mind to a progressive. If you actually listen to the progressives, they'll tell you. In May of 1918, Theodore Roosevelt wrote the following: Patriotism means to stand by the country. It does not mean to stand by the President or any other public officialYou've seen this quote before. You may have even used it yourself....
