    Really, what is it they want? No law enforcement? Ignore black criminality and crime? Force blacks to quit killing each other? Are we supposed to pretend that blacks don’t kill each other with regularity? Or pretend that there is some sort of epidemic of whites killing blacks? How about black attitudes and behaviors? How many blacks kill whites? How about racial BS from blacks? Are they a factor? Seriously, what is it they want?

    <p>SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) – Three Democratic senators have proposed a bill that would pay most Americans each month until the coronavirus’ economic impact subsides.</p> <p>The Monthly Economic Crisis Support Act was drafted by Sens. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and Ed Markey (D-Mass.) and would provide a monthly $2,000 check to people who make less than $120,000.</p>

    With millions of Americans eagerly awaiting their federal stimulus checks to help them weather the the coronavirus recession, people are now able to find out when they can expect to get their money after the government on Wednesday launched a tracking tool called "Get My Payment." The first batch of stimulus checks - or "economic impact payments," as they are officially known - started hitting consumers' bank accounts on Saturday, the Internal Revenue Service has said. But millions of people remain unsure of when the payments will arrive because it depends on whether the IRS has your direct-deposit information and...

    Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) leads the Democratic primary field in California by 18 points, according to a survey released Wednesday. In the poll from the Public Policy Institute of California (PPIC) first reported by the Los Angeles Times, Sanders has the support of 32 percent of likely voters. Joe Biden registered support from 14 percent of poll respondents, and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) trailed the former vice president by 1 percentage point in the survey. Former South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg (D) and former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg (D) were tied at 12 percent each.

    WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. -- Purdue University will offer free tampons and other feminine hygiene products in the campus’ bathrooms in response to student advocates who have been pushing for the move for three years. University President Mitch Daniels on Thursday credited the University Senate, a faculty-led body, for proposing the initiative in a resolution that described feminine hygiene products as a basic necessity that should be in campus restrooms free of charge. Alison Rickert, a junior studying neurobiology and physiology at Purdue, founded The Period Project— an initiative aimed at providing menstrual products to those who need them both in...

    Why, now that doctors can do so much with advancements in modern medicine, are they turning their backs on the patients who need them most, and saying it’s for their own good? A terminally ill child’s death should not be determined by a panel of doctors and a judge. Parents should have a say in the decision to maintain life-extending care. But in Texas, Fourth District Court of Appeals Chief Justice Sandee Bryan Marion went along with the determination of doctors at Cook Children’s Medical Center in Fort Worth to pull life support from 11-month-old Tinslee Lewis, despite her family’s...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's promise to boost federal funding for social programs should not be considered "free stuff," because they are in fact "public goods," the New York Democrat said in a Monday tweet. Ocasio-Cortez, who earlier in the day led a Green New Deal town hall about public housing in the Bronx, said she's tired of being accused of essentially bribing voters with financial handouts. "Public education, libraries, & infrastructure policies (which we‘ve had before in America and elsewhere in the world!) are not 'free stuff,'" she tweeted. "They are PUBLIC GOODS. And they are worth investing in, protecting, &...

    (CNN) — Tuesday night's CNN/The New York Times debate stage will feature a record 12 candidates. It could be the last debate appearance for up to 33% of them. Former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julián Castro, Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar and former Texas Rep. Beto O'Rourke are all in deep danger of not making November's debate. That means Tuesday may be the last chance fo those four to give their campaigns a realistic chance to have a measure of success. Fundraising and polling qualification thresholds have been bumped up once again for November's debate. Jumping...

    We had enough of Communist-loving Sanders when he sang shirtless in Moscow during his ‘honeymoon’. Moscow hasn’t changed since then. And, sadly, neither has Bernie Sanders. For pikers like straight out socialist Senator Bernie Sanders, ‘fair and balanced journalism’ is Pravda all the way. Shirtless while singing ’This Land Is Your Land’ on his honeymoon in Moscow, this DNC-esteemed ‘white man of socialist privilege’ is now singing the ‘What Journalists Should Be’ ballad for an all too-accommodating Columbia Journalism Review (CJR.) A CJR note at the bottom of an op-ed in which Sanders calls for action “to restore the media...

    The Blaze ^ | 7/3/2018 | Glenn Beck The Wonderful World of Stu
    Last week, 28-year-old Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez — a self-described socialist — defeated incumbent Rep. Joe Crowley in a Democratic House primary in New York City. Her win, a dramatic upset in the primary elections, was an early indicator of America’s recent turn toward socialism. Recent polls show that 36 percent of Americans between the age of 18 and 29 favor socialism over capitalism. Socialism’s stigma seems to be fading as fewer Americans remember the spectacular failure of the Soviet Union — the largest socialism experiment in history — and most are seemingly unaware of the current economic disaster in socialist Venezuela....

    DRIVERS have been filmed shamelessly scooping up armfuls of cash off a busy motorway after a security van spilled its contents. “There were definitely people running out into the highway,” he said. “I-285 is the busiest road in Atlanta with speeds averaging over 75MPH and six lanes in each direction. In the video, a string of cars can be seen parked up on the hard shoulder as drivers scramble around filling their arms with banknotes. Under US law, the finders of lost property must take reasonable steps to locate the owner of that property before they can claim it.

    Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) rolled out a plan to offer grants up to $25,000 to low-income black individuals to help with a down payment and closing costs on home purchases.At first glance, to the economically uninformed, this seems like it's a good idea. We want as many people as possible to own homes for many obvious reasons.Why not subsidize low-income buyers with a $25,000 grant? This would mean that it would be easier to buy a house in a low-income area. The more houses that are bought, the higher the demand, and prices will rise, benefitting everyone.But as with all...

    Breitbart ^ | June 07, 2019 | David Thomas Roberts
    The GOP is figuratively licking their chops, awaiting the new socialists in the Democratic Party to put their socialist extremism on full display for the entire country in the upcoming Democratic presidential debates. A 2018 Gallup Poll indicated Americans aged 18 to 29 are more positive about socialism (51%) than capitalism (45%). And, in the most recent May 2019 Gallup Poll, more than four in ten Americans believe socialism would be good for the country. Has the GOP forgotten that the avowed socialist Bernie Sanders won 23 states and 19 million-plus votes in the primary? Could that result be a...

    This morning I was scanning the headlines in the Associated Press feed and was struck by one item in particular. It dealt with the question of Republicans running on the “stop socialism” message and whether or not that would really resonate with voters outside their base. The original title of this article was actually quite a bit more cynical, suggesting that independent voters weren’t buying it. Unfortunately, by the time I got around to writing about it the AP had republished it with the more cautious title, “Dems pushing US to socialism? GOP warnings tap voter unease.”No way to know...

    How much are illegal aliens costing Americans? Even the housing cost alone is incredible. Last month, I revealed that the Trump administration had moved to block illegal alien DACAers from getting taxpayer subsidized mortgages. Under Obama, FHA rules had been bent so far backward that people who were not only non-citizens, not only non-permanent residents, but weren’t even legally here, were having taxpayers guarantee their mortgages. The December letter by Senator Menendez, who had recently been on trial for corruption charges, Senator Booker, on whose watch the $100 million poured into Newark public schools dissipated, and Senator Cortez-Mastro, who had...

Here are all the stores and restaurants serving up cheap (and free!) slices Thursday.

    Members of an internationally lauded basic income pilot project in Canada are taking their province to court over its surprise cancellation, arguing that the Ontario government’s decision is unethical and that it was made in bad faith. On Jan. 27, a three-judge legal panel heard arguments in a Toronto courthouse. They ultimately reserved judgment, meaning they haven’t yet decided whether to uphold the government’s decision or accept...
