  • CNN correspondent contradicts network's own report that armed protesters had no presence in CHAZ

    CNN is offering conflicting reports about whether or not the protesters who have declared the territory of CHAZ are armed, one of the network's former producers pointed out. Over the past several days, a portion of Seatle's downtown area has been taken over by anti-police demonstrators and has created its own borders and forbids the presence of law enforcement. The territory is called Capitol Hill autonomous zone, or CHAZ. CNN media correspondent Oliver Darcy attempted to dismiss the violent element of CHAZ in a report on Thursday evening, saying that presence of militant Antifa members is "grossly exaggerated in right-wing...

    ...Antifa has never had to hide in Seattle, Portland or the rest of the West Coast. When the news media is forced to mention them at all, they obligingly call them “anti-fascists”, which, this week, useful idiots have been touting on Twitter as proof that being against Antifa means one is for fascism, to which I have replied, “why are you against ‘Making America Great Again?” Antifa loves guns, they have a militia arm and they have practiced seizing civilian infrastructure, part of Phase Two on Mao’s rules for Insurgencies In notoriously anti-Second Amendment Seattle, Antifa open-carried. They commandeered a...

    One hundred fifty-five years ago, the Atlantic Monthly published on its front cover the lyrics to “The Battle Hymn of the Republic,” which not only is one of this nation’s most well-known patriot songs, but also, arguably, its most spiritual. The melody was borrowed from a Civil War marching song, which paid tribute to the abolitionist John Brown, and which was popular with Union soldiers. The song’s lyrics – “poor old John Brown is dead, his body lies mouldering in the grave” – were inoffensive to soldiers marching into battle, but deemed too coarse to be sung by the general...

    Five dollars was all she was paid by the Atlantic Monthly Magazine for her poem, "The Battle Hymn of the Republic," published FEBRUARY 1, 1862. It became Lincoln's favorite song and the Union's theme song. Her name was Julia Ward Howe, the daughter of a Wall Street banker and the wife of Dr. Samuel Gridley Howe, director of a school for the blind in Boston, which grew into the famous Perkins Institute. Julia and her husband entertained John Brown in their home and published the anti-slavery journal Commonwealth. In 1861, Julia traveled to Washington, D.C., and saw the city teeming...

    OSAWATOMIE, KAN. -- President Obama will give an economic speech in Osawatomie, Kan., Tuesday at a location the White House says it was very specific in picking and was meant to stir echoes of President Teddy Roosevelt. Roosevelt spoke in the very same town more than 100 years ago on Aug. 31, 1910, where he presented his vision for America and the coming 1912 election. Sound familiar? That's by design. snip Roosevelt gave what was called a "New Nationalism" agenda, talking about regulation on special interests (even using that term), and calling out for welfare, human rights and a greater...

    Video shows McCormack taking a spill into a metal railing while chasing after Martha Coakley in Washington last night, then being helped up by a man who begins to impede McCormack's pursuit. McCormack says the man shoved him into the railing. He also has a suspect: Democratic consultant Michael Meehan. Meehan was dispatched to the race by the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC), according to the AP. A picture from the incident appears to back up McCormack's claim that it was Meehan.

    --snip-- It was 150 years ago today, Oct. 16, 1859. The long-haired, wild-eyed Brown was about to launch a raid that would hasten the Civil War and make him the most notorious man in America, a figure who still ignites controversy a century and a half later. Some see him as an Osama bin Laden; others, as a Christian soldier who gave his life to end human bondage. "You could ask 100 people about John Brown and still get 100 opinions," said Jeff Bowers, a ranger at Harpers Ferry National Historical Park, which plans three days of activities this weekend...

    Today's post of the day, by Michael Williams, is here. It links to a Loony Lefty's blog entry which equates Bush's policies with the Holocaust. Having equated the two, the LL continues: I was reading the other day that one of the Nazi torture warehouses was right in the middle of a residential neighborhood - right next to a movie theater, in fact. People must have heard the screams. On some level, weren't they complicit? Did pretending they didn't know repel the moral stain? She goes on to accuse herself, basically, of complicity and, implicitly, of cowardice. After all, if...

    On Dec. 2, 1859, John Brown was hanged for his deadly raid on Harpers Ferry, WV. On Sept. 3, 2003, Paul Hill was executed for the murder of Dr. John Britton and retired Lt. Col. James Barrett. These two cases show how much society has progressed, and yet how far we have to go. Brown fought for a group that the Supreme Court had ruled was not even worthy to be considered people. By all apparent methods, the United States government in the 1850s had stomped out what few rights black slaves hoped to hold on to. Hill fought likewise...
