  • Mayor Adams compares ‘displacement’ of black New Yorkers to slavery in Juneteenth speech

    The New York Post ^ | 06/19/2022 | Reuben Fenton
    New York City needs to “do better” in preventing black residents from being driven out of their neighborhoods, Mayor Eric Adams said on Sunday, during an address marking the Juneteenth holiday. Speaking in Central Park, Adams compared the modern-day uprooting of people of color from neighborhoods across the US — including the five boroughs — to slavery. “When I was in Ghana last year, [I] saw how families were displaced, torn apart and brought over to America through slavery in the hulls of the ships, living in dungeons, spending months and months living in their human waste, having their babies...

    American Thinker ^ | 6/11/22 | Rajan Laad
    It is an axiomatic fact that the mainstream media functions as the propaganda wing for the Washington Democrat establishment. In fact, the news media should not be seen as a separate entity but instead as a department within the Democrat party. Reading an op-ed in the New York Times or the WaPo or watching a show on MSNBC doesn’t provide insight into what the editors or presenter are thinking, but instead what the Democrat Establishment is thinking or wants their voters to think. The NYT was among those who actively promoted Joe Biden during the Presidential contest in 2020 and...

    Former first lady Michelle Obama urged her Instagram followers to “double down” on working to protect abortion rights in a post Thursday as the Supreme Court gets closer to ruling on an abortion rights case that could overturn Roe v. Wade. “So we’ve got to get work today. We’ve got to press our elected leaders at every level to pull every lever they can to protect the right to safe, legal abortion — right now,” Obama wrote, urging voters to back political candidates who support abortion rights. Her post comes about a month after a draft Supreme Court majority opinion...

    Washington — The Justice Department on Tuesday called on a federal appeals court to reinstate the national mask mandate for public transit and airplanes after a U.S. district judge found the requirements to be unlawful in April. In a brief filed with the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, the Biden administration argued the January 2021 order from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) requiring travelers to wear masks on public transportation and in transit hubs to prevent the spread of COVID-19 "falls easily" within the agency's statutory authority.

    The London-based Arabic newspaper Asharq Al-Awsat is reporting that Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas has informed the United States, Egypt and Jordan that he will implement the PLO's central council decision to sever ties with Israel in lieu of the Jerusalem Day events. According to the report, Abbas' move came after Jordanian and Egyptian efforts failed to persuade the US administration to adopt a plan to open a political process towards the establishment of a Palestinian state. US Secretary of State Antony Blinken spoke to Abbas yesterday. According to State Department spokesperson Ned Price, the two discussed "the importance of...

    Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps is constructing a massive new ship that would expand its reach to new waterways. The ship is being built near the Strait of Hormuz in order for Iran to create a larger presence in the strategic shipping lane, which is of international importance for the transport of energy supplies, the Associated Press reported. The Strait of Hormuz, located between the Persian Gulf and the Gulf of Oman, is the only sea route from the Persian Gulf to the open ocean. It is considered one of the world’s most important shipping points for oil, with an average...

    The Lebanese Al-Mayadeen news website, which is affiliated with Hezbollah, reported on Wednesday that Palestinian Arab terrorist groups have informed Israel, through mediators, that they will not remain silent and respond militarily to Israel's attempts to establish new facts in Jerusalem and in particular in the Al-Aqsa Mosque. Palestinian Arab sources in Gaza told the website that Israel sent a message through the mediators that the Flag March, scheduled for this Sunday in Jerusalem, would take place along the same route that has been customary in recent years. The message also stated that the Israel Police will limit the number...

    The Minnesota Republican Party apologized for screening a video that depicted liberal Jewish billionaire George Soros as a puppet master controlling two Jewish Democrats, saying that those responsible were not aware that the imagery had antisemitic connotations. “We understand that the use of imagery depicting Mr. Soros as a puppet-master at our state convention raised concerns that the imagery perpetuated an antisemitic trope,” state GOP chairman David Hann said Thursday in a statement, noting that the Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC) of Minnesota and the Dakotas had contacted them after the video screened. .....

    TOPEKA (KSNT) – The Kansas Supreme Court announced this morning its decisions in cases that involve state and congressional reapportioned districts around 10:30 a.m. In a decision on Wednesday by the Kansas Supreme Court, the redrawn redistricting maps are upheld as constitutional. The state Supreme Court declined to declare that overly partisan gerrymandering violates the Kansas Constitution. The ruling sets district boundaries less than a month before the state’s June 10 filing deadline for congressional candidates. The state’s Republican-appointed solicitor general argued in defending the GOP-drawn map that because the state constitution doesn’t specifically mention gerrymandering or congressional redistricting, the...

    A large majority of Americans think the country is headed in the wrong direction, and much of their blame for the nation’s woes rests on President Joe Biden and the worsening economic crisis. A new poll from NBC News found that 75 percent of U.S. adults think the nation is on the wrong track. That’s the highest number of unsatisfied Americans since the nation’s last notable recession in 2008. It’s also up nearly 20 percentage points since this time last year and up two percentage points from January 2021 when Biden was inaugurated. IMAGE Most of these Americans’ concerns can...

    Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee announced Tuesday that she tested positive for COVID-19, despite being fully vaccinated and receiving booster shots. “Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee tested positive for COVID,” her official Twitter account noted on Tuesday. “She is fully vaccinated and has received her boosters.” Evidently, the multiple jabs of COVID-19 inoculation did nothing to immunize the Texas Democrat from contracting of the virus nor did it stop Jackson from urging the public to get more shots. Statement: Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee tested positive for COVID. She is fully vaccinated and has received her boosters. She encourages everyone to get tested...

    A Wisconsin school district has filed sexual harassment complaints against three middle schoolers for calling a classmate by a wrong pronoun. The school district in Kiel, a city of 3,600 residents, has charged the three eighth-graders at the Kiel Middle School with sexual harassment after an incident in April in which the students refused to use “they” to refer to a classmate who had switched pronouns a month before the alleged incident, according to reports. “I received a phone call from the principal …forewarning me, letting me know that I was going to be receiving an email with sexual harassment...

    Ex-staffers at CNN+, who were fired last month after the month-old streaming service was abruptly shut down, got gift boxes the following week that were filled with CNN+ swag, according to a report. CNN’s new parent company Warner Bros. Discovery delivered a “gut punch” to the laid-off employees as it “mistakenly” mailed out the gifts to employees who had been fired a week earlier, according to the Wall Street Journal. The boxes included branded gear from pens to food containers, as well as items such as a popcorn maker and headphones, the publication reported, adding that some of the boxes...
