    Have you heard of Lisa Fithian? A veteran of the Seattle WTO riots and scores of other protests, she’s been with Sheehan from the start. A notice on Cindy Sheehan's website, meetwithcindy.org, asks for donors who might be able to offer a camper, or an RV, or just money, for Sheehan's upcoming cross-country tour, scheduled to begin Wednesday in Crawford, Texas, and end in Washington at the big antiwar demonstration scheduled for September 24. At the end of the note, readers with something to offer are asked to "please call organizer Lisa Fithian." To anyone familiar with the world of...

    Christina Pushaw, Governor Ron DeSantis’s press secretary, is an extremely effective communicator. For example, on Saturday, Pushaw managed to cut through the smog of lies that Democrats use to claim that they’re not teaching Critical Race Theory (“CRT”) in America’s schools. She did this by publishing incredibly foul, race-based math homework that is on the curriculum in Missouri public schools. Every since conservative Americans discovered, mostly thanks to the Zoom classrooms that Fauci’s lockdowns forced on America’s schools, that their children are being taught Critical Race Theory precepts (Blacks are victims; Whites are evil), Democrats have been denying that CRT...

    Rep. Drew Ferguson (R-GA) will not seek a fifth term in the House, joining Reps. Kay Granger (R-TX) and Ken Buck (R-CO) as he becomes the latest retiree among the 25 insurgents who voted against Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) for Speaker in October. In a Thursday announcement, the last scheduled voting day for 2023, Ferguson said he and his wife “look forward to spending more time with our children and grandchildren” while touting his home state of Georgia as “the best state in America to live and do business.”

    one of the more bizarre moments at the Covid Inquiry so far, Professor Neil Ferguson, the architect of Britain’s lockdown, today denied ever calling for the first national stay-at-home order – in the latest instance of lockdown backpedalling. The Mail has more. Professor Neil Ferguson’s terrifying March 2020 models warned that 500,000 Brits would die unless tougher action was taken to curb the virus’s spread. It spooked Boris Johnson into adopting draconian restrictions that saw the country told they “must stay at home.” Vaccines — considered the only safe route out of the pandemic — were still months away from...

    Over the Christmas weekend, Chicago surpassed the 750-murder mark for 2016. But as blacks lay dying on the streets of Chicago’s South and West Sides, a Black Lives Matter offshoot is more interested in traveling overseas to learn “resistance” from terrorists. The Dream Defenders bills itself as “an uprising of communities in struggle, shifting culture through transformational organizing.” But an investigation conducted by the Haym Salomon Center reveals the group’s embrace of anti-Semitism and collaboration with a State Department-designated terror group. In August, Black Lives Matter singled out Israel for condemnation, declaring it an “apartheid” state engaged in “genocide.” These...

    WASHINGTON — A Trump supporter who stormed the Capitol wearing a “Make Space Great Again” hat had two guns and 400 rounds of ammunition in his van when he was arrested Thursday near former President Barack Obama’s home, federal authorities said Friday. A federal prosecutor said in court Friday that Taylor Taranto, a 37-year-old man first identified by online sleuths in August 2021, also had a machete in the van he appeared to be living in. Taranto's van has been parked near the D.C. jail in recent weeks and he has appeared at protests in support of other Jan. 6...

    The Duchess of York met with Jeffrey Epstein in 2010 even though he was still under house arrest for having sex with underage girls, files obtained by DailyMail.com indicate. The pedophile's private calendars from March that year reveal that he would make room in his schedule for Sarah Ferguson, the ex-wife of Prince Andrew. At the time Epstein still had five months of house arrest left for admitting to soliciting a minor for prostitution, an offense for which he served a 13-month jail sentence and was labeled a registered sex offender. Epstein told his assistant: 'Duchess anytime.' .....

    The regime is not pleased. Therefore, Washington State Democrats, led by Gov. Jay Inslee, proposed a new law to root out and smother the opinions, thoughts, and ideas of people who engage in wrong-think, to stop “early signs of radicalization.” And when they find them, to “develop a public health-style response.” Welcome to the Washington State Democrats’ proposed Minority Report Commission, where people drunk with power propose to kill ideas before someone does something “radical,” such as writing their legislators, protesting at school board meetings, disobeying vaccine mandates, refusing to wear masks, or objecting to sexualizing school children. Democrats who...

    I wrote about how Elon Musk discovered “Stay Woke” t-shirts in a Twitter closet as he continues to sort out things at the headquarters. That says so much about the liberal nature of the platform before Musk. Musk also noted that the shirts go back to the time of the shooting of Michael Brown and the protests/riots in Ferguson. He also linked to the report of the Obama DOJ, noting that the shooting was in self-defense. That set off people on the left even more because they had to deal with the reality that their beliefs that they may have...

    Shades of Dan Rather! On CNN This Morning, Don Lemon tried to make the case that, despite being debunked by a Justice Department investigation and report, the Ferguson-born slogan of "hands up, don't shoot" was fake but accurate. As Lemon put it: "Remember, hands up don't shoot, after Ferguson, became a nationwide protest symbol for police mistreatment of minorities. It was about more than the shooting of Michael Brown." Note that Lemon only spoke of a "DoJ report" on Ferguson, debunking the "hands, up, don't shoot," claim. Lemon never revealed that the report was authored under the Justice Department leadership...

    WASHINGTON — A top House Republican’s little-known past job working with Democrats to change US elections and choose presidents by popular vote threatens to upend his bid to rise in the GOP ranks, The Post has learned. The three-way House Republican whip race between Reps.

    A chaotic brawl possibly involving more than two dozen customers broke out inside a Missouri Walmart and was caught on video, prompting police to launch a criminal investigation. The violent melee took place in the self-checkout area inside the big-box store located off West Florissant Avenue in the St. Louis suburb of Ferguson at around 9 p.m. Tuesday. A cellphone recording of the fracas, which has since gone viral on social media platforms, shows people brutally punching, kicking and stomping on each other while screaming profanities. Some of those involved in the altercation pick up poles and other objects, and...

    Jaylon Ferguson, the 26-year-old Ravens linebacker who died unexpectedly in June, succumbed to the “combined effects of fentanyl and cocaine,” an autopsy revealed. Police initially ruled out any foul play or trauma. The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner told the Baltimore Sun that Ferguson’s death was an accident. “Our priority is focused on the man Jaylon was and the positive impact he made on so many as a father, son, fiancé, friend and teammate,” the Ravens said in a statement via Pro Football Talk. “It would be inappropriate for us to comment further while we continue to support his...

    Former Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey said on Monday evening that he knows that CNN promotes false news reporting because he witnessed the far-left network try to cause conflict during the Ferguson, Missouri riots back in 2014. Dorsey made the revelation in a response to a tweet from Miss Universe Iraq 2017 Sarah Abdali Idan who said, “Even @CNN sometimes sell false news. I know this from covering Iraq events in 2019. People need to understand every media is prone to either mistakes or deliberate corruption. Do your own investigation before believing what they’re selling you.” Dorsey responded, “I know this...

    Until recently, former Democratic President Jimmy Carter might have been seen as the worst president in terms of American foreign policy, having ushered in the Iranian hostage crisis and a rapidly destabilizing Middle East. With the Biden administration's reticence to proactively help Ukraine, one historian told Fox News the Ukrainian president's and his people's heroism could have a tangential effect on helping Biden's widely-criticized behavior.
