    Rae’Lee Klein demands to be rehired at Blaze Radio or get monetary damages for violating her First Amendment rights. An Arizona State University journalism student is suing after she was fired from the school’s radio station for tweeting about Jacob Blake’s past accusations of sexual assault. Attorney Jack D. Wilenchik has sent a letter to the public university instructing them to either rehire Rae’Lee Klein, a Cheyenne, Wyoming native, at Blaze Radio or provide monetary damages for violating her First Amendment rights. “Always more to the story, folks,” said Klein in an August tweet with a New York Post article...

    The attacks on Fox News host Tucker Carlson as a racist, white nationalist, xenophobic, immigrant-hating troll have become coin of the realm in the establishment media. Last week, the Daily Beast hit an all-time low when one of its reporters accused Carlson of blaming George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and Jacob Blake for their own deaths and injuries from police. The almost libelous article attributes claims that Carlson actually never made on his show. The Daily Beast reporter simply offers his own dubious interpretations of Carlson’s interpretation of news and facts as he receives them. Carlson has been lambasted for criticizing...

    An Arizona State University journalism student said she is latest victim of “cancel culture” — having been removed from her role at the school’s radio station for tweeting about Jacob Blake’s past accusations of sexual assault. Rae’Lee Klein, the 21-year-old former station manager of the student-run station, was first targeted last month when she tweeted a New York Post article revealing the details behind Blake’s arrest warrant, she said. “Always more to the story, folks,” Klein tweeted on her personal account with a link to The Post’s story. “Please read this article to get the background of Jacob Blake’s warrant....

    On Aug. 23, 29-year-old Jacob Blake, a black man, was shot seven times in the back by a white police officer. The original video, which only included the last moments of the incident, gave no context for the incident. But further video and police reports made clear what happened. According to the police association, the police were called to the scene by a black woman who had dialed 911 to report that Blake was attempting to steal the keys to her car. There was an open warrant on Blake for third-degree felony sexual assault; the alleged victim is the woman...

    A Joe Biden terrified that the African-American vote is slipping away from the party of pandering made an absurd claim during a rare day trip from his basement bunker to Kenosha, Wisconsin. At least his handlers were able to find and lead him to Wisconsin, which Hillary Clinton failed to do in 2016. Biden had just finished a meeting with the family of Jacob Blake, the young African-American wanted on a felony warrant for sexual abuse shot after struggling with police. As part of his portrayal of the Trump administration as oppressors of blacks and white people as guardians of...

    Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) told Jacob Blake Jr. on Monday that she is “proud of him and how he is working through his pain,” according to attorney Benjamin Crump, who represents the Blake family. Blake was shot seven times from behind in a confrontation with Kenosha, Wisconsin, police on Aug. 23. He was wounded and paralyzed from the waist down. The incident sparked local riots, and Blake became the latest victim to be championed by the Black Lives Matter movement. At the time of the confrontation, there was a warrant for Blake’s arrest for “third-degree sexual assault, trespassing and disorderly...

    Jacob Blake, the Black man who was shot several times in the back by a police officer in Kenosha, Wis., last month, is calling for his supporters to "stick together" and to recognize that their lives could be taken away from them at any moment. "I just want to say, to all the young cats out there and even the older ones, there’s a lot more life to live out here man," Blake said while speaking from a hospital bed in a video that was posted by his family's attorney, Benjamin Crump, on Saturday.

    Jacob Blake, the Black man whose shooting by a white police officer has sparked nationwide protests, appeared in court on Friday to plead not guilty to three prior charges. Blake, 29, made his appearance via Zoom from his hospital bed, where he has been recovering. The court hearing marked his first public appearance since the Aug. 23 shooting, which left him paralyzed below the waist. The criminal complaint, which was filed prior to the shooting, accuses Blake of third-degree sexual assault, a felony charge, as well as criminal trespass and disorderly conduct, both misdemeanors, according to CNN and ABC News....

    Former Vice President Joseph R. Biden visited Thursday with the Blake family amid rising scrutiny and criticism over Jacob Blake Sr.’s apparent history of anti-Semitic and racially charged social-media posts. Posts accused Jews of controlling the media and financial institutions; mocked White people as “crackers” and “pink toes;” described certain women as “hoes,” and expressed support for the Nation of Islam’s Louis Farrakhan. “The same pink toe Jewish people that control the interest rate control the interest rate they control Minds and money,” Mr. Blake Sr. posted on Nov. 6, 2017. Other posts from 2017-19 included the messages, “I’m with...

    Jacob Blake Sr., the father of Jacob Blake, the man who was shot by a Kenosha, Wisconsin, police officer, is scheduled to meet with Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden in Wisconsin. That visit has ignited scrutiny over Blake Sr.’s Facebook posts. Those posts show anti-Semitic comments (such as saying the Jews control the media), repeatedly refer to white people as “crackers” and “pinks” or “pink toes,” trash the Christian church, and refer to some women as “hoes.” In one post, he wrote, “Fresh out of Facebook penitentiary I say f*** the white man.” In 2019, he captioned a graphic that...

    Note from management: The fact that Jacob Blake’s father appears to have a long history of bigoted social media posts has no bearing on questions surrounding his son’s shooting by police in Kenosha, Wisconsin. Nevertheless, since former Vice President Joe Biden has decided to meet with him on Thursday during a visit to the town, his extremist views are newsworthy. Jacob Blake Sr., the father of the man shot Aug. 23 by police in Kenosha, Wisconsin, appears to have a long history of racist, antisemitic, and anti-Christian posts on Facebook. He is set to meet with Democratic Party presidential nominee...

    Attorney General Bill Barr said Wednesday that Jacob Blake was committing a felony and armed when a police officer in Kenosha, Wisconsin shot him seven times in the back. Barr was doing an interview with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer when he made the claims about Blake, without citing the specific felony Blake was allegedly committing. Initially, the attorney general said he was “not going to talk about the Blake case” because it was separate from the killing of George Floyd, who died after an officer kneeled on his neck in Minneapolis.

    The most violence-ridden cities in American are run by Democrats. Why then, should they be trusted to lead an entire nation of more than 330 million people? Democrats have recently joined forces in blaming President Trump of fanning the flames of violence. While this is nothing new, it is concerning evidence of a pattern among the left. More particularly, the party that seeks to lead the nation is unwilling to take responsibility for the misdeeds of its members and is always looking to blame others. Americans should not trust this party to lead them.As reported by The Hill, Rep. Karen...

    Kenosha, WI – The Kenosha police union and the Wisconsin attorney general released new information about the officer-involved shooting of 29-year-old Jacob Blake by Kenosha police that tells a very different story from the false narrative that has spread throughout the country. Brendan Matthews, attorney for the Kenosha Professional Police Association, released a statement that called the protesters’ narrative “wholly inaccurate,” according to the Kenosha News. “The purely fictional depiction of events coming from those without direct knowledge of what actually occurred is incredibly harmful, and provides no benefit to anyone whatsoever, other than to perpetuate a misleading narrative,” Matthews...

    President Trump said Monday that he is not planning to meet with members of Jacob Blake’s family while in Kenosha, Wis., because they wanted to have “lawyers involved” which he called “inappropriate.” “I spoke with the pastor, wonderful man, the family’s pastor. I thought it would be better not to do anything where there are lawyers involved,” Trump told reporters Monday when asked why he wasn’t planning to meet with the Blake family during his trip to Wisconsin on Tuesday. “They wanted me to speak but they wanted to have lawyers involved and I thought that was inappropriate so I...

    A week ago Sunday, social media erupted when a graphic video emerged showing a white Kenosha, Wisconsin police officer shoot, multiple times, a black man in the back as he attempted to enter a vehicle containing three children. The man later identified as 29-year-old Jacob Blake survived, and remains hospitalized.As the video went viral, violence erupted in this mid-sized Wisconsin community. Rather than call for calm, Wisconsin’s first-term governor, Democrat Tony Evers, fueled the outrage by framing the shooting as yet another “Black man or person” “shot or injured or mercilessly killed at the hands of individuals in law...
