    On Friday’s broadcast of HBO’s “Real Time,” CNN Senior Political Commentator and former Obama Adviser Van Jones stated that while it’s untrue that “the black community only cares about a black kid getting killed if a white cop does it or a white supremacist does it,” it is true that “The media only cares” about black children being killed if a white police officer or a racist white person is the killer. Host Bill Maher began the discussion by stating, “We do know that, for young black men, gun homicides are the leading cause of death. And…that leading cause outstrips...

    On Friday’s broadcast of HBO’s “Real Time,” CNN Senior Political Commentator and former Obama Adviser Van Jones and columnist and author Ann Coulter sparred over the failed Senate border bill and the U.S. immigration system. After host Bill Maher argued that Democrats have turned the immigration issue around on Republicans, Jones said, “Look, it turns out there is a conspiracy to keep the border open, to flood the country with undocumented people, and it’s led by Donald Trump and the Republican Party, because, down there, open border. They had the opportunity to close it.” Later on, Jones stated, “It is...

    On Tuesday’s broadcast of “CNN This Morning” CNN Political Commentator and former Obama Adviser Van Jones stated that while there are good jobs numbers in the black community, “they’re crappy jobs.” Co-host Phil Mattingly asked, “[T]he Biden team has constantly tried to make the pitch on the economy that, look, if you look at the topline numbers, it’s great, it’s defying all expectations and people responding to pollsters say, no, it’s not, not at all. We completely disagree. Although, in the last couple of weeks, we’ve seen a shift in consumer sentiment. The University of Michigan survey popped 13 points...

    ATLANTA — A federal judge ruled on Thursday that Georgia’s redrawn congressional maps violate a section of the Voting Rights Act. The Georgia General Assembly approved the maps back in 2021 and were signed by Gov. Brian Kemp. The maps shifted the Republican edge from 8-6 to 9-5. A series of lawsuits were filed against the state of Georgia arguing that the redrawn maps illegally discriminate against minorities and take away their voting power. Governor Brian Kemp issued a proclamation on Thursday afternoon calling for a special session of the Georgia General Assembly on Nov. 29 to revisit laws relating...

Jones was placed on the non-football illness list last week by the Raiders with what the team has described as a personal matter. He has been away from the team since Labor Day weekend when he began a series of social media posts aimed at the Raiders, owner Mark Davis, general manager Dave Ziegler and coach Josh McDaniels.

    Tennessee Democratic state Reps. Justin Jones and Justin Pearson, who were briefly expelled from the state legislature earlier this year after joining in protests against gun violence, were named to the “Harper’s Bazaar” Icons list for 2023 on Thursday. The magazine announced its list of 14 people “who are helping to shift narratives, open doors, and reshape the culture,” adding the group “made their marks — and some of them might be making history." “I don’t look like the other elected officials in the building,” Jones told the magazine. “In fact, I was told that I should cut my hair...

    U.S. District Judge Steve Jones denied requests made by Mark Meadows and Jeffrey Clark to avoid arrest in Fulton County while their requests to move the case to federal court are pending. Both Mr. Meadows and Mr. Clark, both former federal officials, have been named as defendants in an indictment against former President Donald Trump and 16 others. Their actions in the former president's challenge of the Georgia election results have led to them being charged with violating the state's Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act. Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis alleges that their actions constituted a "criminal...

    CNN analyst Van Jones pointed criticism for the Supreme Court on Thursday over what he described as the high court’s ever-more out-of-touch decisions. Jones said the court’s decisions which prevent affirmative action, allow sexual orientation discrimination and shot down President Biden’s loan forgiveness plan create a crisis of legitimacy which could undermine the tenets of the entire country. “This is dangerous stuff, because when you have a legitimacy crisis for the court, you have a legitimacy crisis for the country,” he argued. “You can imagine a generation of younger Americans looking at the Supreme Court that is so out of...

    Far-right firebrand Alex Jones prophesied on his Saturday night show that "they" were going to kill former President Donald Trump. As a former president, Trump enjoys a tight circle of Secret Service protection that includes his cars and home. Still, Jones thinks it will happen. “And then I think they’ll blow his airplane up," Jones said. "I really, at a gut level, believe they’re going to kill Trump. I mean, I believe the deep state establishment will murder him... he dies of a heart attack, or they poison him, or they blow his airplane up." It isn't the first time...

    Tennessee house Democrat Justin Jones, who was just reinstated to the chamber after being expelled for leading a disruptive gun-control protest on the floor, assaulted a driver and faced serious charges for other misconduct committed while attending racial-justice protests in the summer of 2020.

The video, which was resurfaced by the Post Millenial, shows Jones and other activists stopping and surrounding the vehicle before the driver escaped. Jones was charged with...

    Tennessee lawmakers on Thursday voted to expel at least one Democratic state representative over his participation in a gun control demonstration during which a trio of Democrats interrupted the floor session and used a bullhorn to lead supporters outside in chants. The chamber voted to oust state Rep. Justin Jones of Nashville, who disrupted the proceedings alongside Reps. Gloria Johnson and Justin Pearson of Knoxville and Memphis, respectively. Jones was expelled in a 72-25 vote. Lawmakers needed 66 to remove him, according to the Tennessean. Before his ouster, Jones warned that such a move would backfire on Republicans, "Your overreaction,...

    Even conspiracy theorist Alex Jones is disgusted by Kanye West’s vile declarations of love for Nazis — admitting he was shocked by his “homoerotic” Adolf Hitler “fetish.” The Infowars host — recently ordered to pay nearly $1.5 billion for calling the Sandy Hook school massacre a hoax — says he feels like he “was sucked into a giant publicity stunt” when the gimp mask-wearing rapper now known as Ye appeared on his show last week. “He said, ‘I looove Hitler’ — I think he had an orgasm over there,” Jones, 48, told YouTuber Steven Crowder of the fallen fashion mogul’s...

    Alyssa Farah Griffin told her co-hosts Friday on ABC’s “The View” that the Holocaust “could happen again” if rapper Kanye West, white supremacist Nick Fuentes, and InfoWars host Alex Jones had platforms. Co-host Joy Behar said, “So yesterday Kanye West found a safe space for his antisemitism when he was interviewed by conspiracy theorist and all-around awful person Alex Jones. West showed up in some kind of bondage hood and proclaimed his love for Hitler and the Nazis.” Griffin said, “I watched clips of the live stream, and I hate that these people even have a platform.

Eyewitnesses say Jones collapsed as the verdict was read. "We understand this is a civil suit, but Alex Jones is so uniquely evil we decided pursuing the death penalty in this case was appropriate," said a lawyer representing the...

Jones said, “Coming into Labor Day weekend, you are starting to see the beginnings of what could be a blue wave.
