    City Journal ^ | Spring, 2024 | N. S. Lyons
    It’s November 2023, and, following the October 7 attacks by Hamas terrorists that killed some 1,400 Israelis and at least 31 Americans, thousands of demonstrators march through New York City, calling for the destruction of the Jewish state. Chants of “from the river to the sea, Palestine will be free” echo through the streets, along with “there is only one solution: intifada revolution.” Among the crowd is the infamous Palestinian American activist Linda Sarsour, who warns through a megaphone that a cabal of wily Jews has conspired to place “their little posters” (of kidnapped Israeli civilians) across the city, seeking...

    Claiming to be America’s second-largest private foundation, the Ford Foundation has poured almost $2 billion into groups active in “disrupting systems to advance social justice,” according to its grant database. The Ford Foundation boasts key members of the Joe Biden and Kamala Harris campaign as alumni executives. Harris’s sister and ex-campaign chairwoman Maya Harris served as the Ford foundation’s vice president alongside Biden’s now senior advisor, Cristóbal Alex, who served as its program director during the Obama presidency. Some of Obama’s top staffers are now Ford Foundation’s top staffers. Taara Rangarajan, now Ford’s chief of staff, served as Obama’s national security advisor from 2013-2016. Before that, she served as a special...

    by Joe Callen Slow Joe Biden has been struggling to connect with younger voters -- a crucial demographic he needs to try and beat Trump. Biden cannot seem to generate anywhere near the level of enthusiasm among Gen-Z and Millennial voters as did Bernie Sanders. CNN reported that one of the reasons Joe chose ultra-left wing VP mate Kamala Harris was to "energize" young people -- which is bizarre g9iven how Harris went on a rampage imprisoning young people for minor weed offenses as California Attorney General. But a new video unearthed by conservative Jason Howerton will absolutely crush...

    Antifa’s violence in many cases remained unpunished, either our legal system failed or their legal defenders have a lot of money to protect them. Yesterday Federal law enforcement made an arrest of an Antifa black bloc militant. Notice how the camera person says “NLG will get you out.” Video below: https://twitter.com/MrAndyNgo/status/1283388065407533062?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1283388065407533062%7Ctwgr%5E&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fconservativeus.com%2Fvideo-antifa-rioter-explains-how-they-keep-getting-out-of-jail-even-when-theyre-charged-with-felonies%2F The NLG green hat volunteers have access to court databases through various legal subscription services. Against service guidelines, they pass personal information on to their Antifa comrades for doxes. This is one-way Antifa receive addresses, phone numbers, etc of their targets.

    Christian Post ^ | 06/07/2020 | Ryan Bomberger
    Every life unjustly killed deserves justice. In the cause to make things right, I will not join a movement that has nearly everything wrong. More innocent lives have now been killed (#BlueLivesMatter, too) since these predominantly violent protests began over George Floyd’s horrific death. What about the black lives killed in this nationwide chaos? Do they matter?“Well, you don’t have to agree with everything. Just pick out the good things in the #BlackLivesMatter movement,” I’m told. Really? Let’s apply that same logic to another example. I’ve been repeatedly approached to partner with New Black Panthers in anti-abortion billboard campaigns. We...

    The Tennessee Star ^ | 10 Mar, 2020 | Bradley Betters
    Antifa violence will feature prominently in the lead-up to this year’s election. The left-wing movement’s numbers skyrocketed following President Trump’s 2016 victory and campaign staffers for Bernie Sanders have already predicted serious street violence should Trump win again. Same goes for a Sanders primary loss. As another staffer recently predicted, this year’s Democratic National Convention in Milwaukee will be rife with attacks on police; enough, apparently, to make the infamous 1968 convention in Chicago “look like a f—ing Girl Scout f—ing cookout.” With the weight of the Democrat machine now transparently behind former Vice President Joe Biden (who was the...

    Leaked funding documents reveal an effort by George Soros and his foundations to manipulate election laws and process rules ahead of the federal election far more expansively than has been previously reported. The billionaire and convicted felon moved hundreds of millions of dollars into often-secret efforts to change election laws, fuel litigation to attack election integrity measures, push public narratives about voter fraud, and to integrate the political ground game of the left with efforts to scare racial minority groups about voting rights threats. These Soros-funded efforts moved through dozens of 501(c)(3) and (c)(4) charities and involved the active compliance with civil rights groups, government...

    ROME, October 17, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) — A co-founding organization of REPAM, the ecclesial network responsible for the planning and execution of the Amazon Synod being held at the Vatican, has received over $2 million dollars from an American multi-billion-dollar, pro-abortion and pro-gender theory foundation, it emerged at today’s synod press briefing. At the Oct. 17 presser, Edward Pentin of the National Catholic Register brought to the attention of Archbishop Roque Paloschi, of Porto Velho, Brazil, the findings of Brazilian journalist Bernardo Küster who has discovered that the CIMI (the Missionary Council of Indigenous Peoples) has “received significant funding from the...

    Dearborn, Michigan's local historical commission has adopted a resolution calling on Mayor Jack O'Reilly to reverse his recent firing of the editor of the commission's quarterly magazine, the Dearborn Historian, over the January edition's cover story.  O'Reilly also killed the issue's release, but the article was published anyway in the online news site, Deadline Detroit.  The censored story, "Henry Ford and The International Jew," was meant to mark the centennial of Henry Ford acquiring a local newspaper, the Dearborn Independent.   Ford used the paper to launch a 91-week series of anti-Semitic articles, repackaged into book form as The International Jew.  As told by the quarterly's fired editor, veteran journalist...

Since his presidency, Walker needs to fix the world and make...

    The Obama Foundation saw its largest donations so far this year come from repeat contributors who pledged to give even more money toward the organization’s vision, records show. The Crown Family, which owns a stake of the Chicago Bulls, real estate mogul and gay rights activist Mel Heifetz, and the Ford Foundation have made large million-dollar contributions before but agreed to repeat donations of more than $1 million each. The Obama Foundation reported one new donor of more than $1 million: Iger Bay Foundation, which is affiliated with the Disney family. The Obama Foundation was also given more than $250,000...

    On June 2, 2011, Judicial Watch released documents that show the Obama FCC’s collusion with a radical leftist organization to seize control over the Internet. This investigation caught the eye of congressional leaders, and now it appears a congressional probe of the matter is in the offing. ... The documents we uncovered show that the Obama FCC was deeply involved in discussions with the radical leftist organization Free Press in the run up to the December 2010 FCC vote. How deep? Free Press reached out to the FCC to invite FCC Commissioner Michael Copps to write an op-ed for the...

    Dems Pouring Millions Into Black Lives Matter It’s a full-fledged political and terrorist machine. Trey Sanchez Chants of “black lives matter” have filled the streets since the 2014 shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson. But what once was a grassroots movement has swelled to a full-on political machine and its increasing terrorism has the full financial blessing of several liberal foundations. TruthRevolt previously reported on George Soros’s hefty donation of $33 million to ensure the Ferguson protests stayed in the spotlight for as long as possible. This funding helped bring in protesters by the busloads to Missouri and allowed them...

    Media Research Center ^ | February 22, 2016 | Alatheia Larsen
    In the wake of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia's unfortunate death, several liberal groups -- including the media favorite, People for the American Way -- are pushing the Obama Administration to quickly nominate a like-minded justice. And the groups all have something in common. Money. Combined, Soros and the Ford Foundation (not connected to Ford Motor Company) gave at least $50 million, and possibly more, to organizations which hope to push the court further to the left through an Obama appointee. Liberal media are pushing the same agenda by criticizing the GOP for wanting to delay a nomination. CBS and...
