    Fact Checkers Cover for Democratic Party’s Sordid History With the Ku Klux KlanDuring a June 7th Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on white supremacy and domestic terrorism, U.S. Senator Ted Cruz stated that:the Ku Klux Klan “was formed by elected Democrats.”Klan “leadership was almost entirely elected Democrats.”today’s Democrats “try very hard to erase the history” of their party’s involvement with the’s Democrats “politicize acts of violence.”Conversely, “fact checkers” like PolitiFact and the Associated Press have repeatedly argued that the Democratic Party did not found the Klan, played a limited role in it, and that racist southerners fled to the Republican...

    MIAMI BEACH, FLA. (WSVN) - Officials with the City of Miami Beach have declared a state of emergency after a weekend that included shootings and overwhelming spring break crowds in South Beach’s entertainment district. “We intend to declare a public emergency effective this Thursday,” said Miami Beach City manager Alina T. Hudak. Mayor Dan Gelber, alongside city commissioners, made the official announcement around 4 p.m. outside Miami Beach City Hall. “If you want to see what a very frustrated and angry mayor looks like, you’re looking at him,” said Gelber. “Our city is well past its endpoint. We can’t endure...

    Dear Gov. Cooper, We write to you today as citizens of the state of North Carolina, many of whom voted for you, who care deeply about social justice issues, and who own firearms. We are writing to you about H.B. 398, which has passed the North Carolina House and Senate on party-line votes and now sits at your desk. We ask you, despite the partisan nature of previous votes, to sign this bill, as we consider the current law does nothing to promote firearms safety or social justice, and instead is a tax and legal burden on working class...

    The Congressional Black Caucus has determined that newly elected Rep. Byron Donalds (R-FL) cannot be a member because he is not a Democrat. Caucus Chair Rep. Joyce Beatty (D-OH) questioned Donald's blackness, alleging that "the fact that he is a Republican and a Trump supporter argues that he is not authentically black. As President Biden has pointed out on several occasions 'if you're a Republican, you ain't black." Donalds objected to "the implication that all blacks must think alike when it comes to politics. Historically, it has been Democrats that have played the bigger role in suppressing the voices and...

    Lawyer Alan Dershowitz has accused Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters of using tactics from the Ku Klux Klan "playbook" to "intimidate the jury" in the Derek Chauvin murder trial. In a televised interview with Newsmax, Dershowitz likened Waters' actions to that of the KKK in the "1920s and 1930s." "The Klan would march outside of courthouses and threaten all kinds of reprisals if the jury ever dared convict a white person or acquit a black person," he said. **SNIP** Dershowitz said, "First of all, the judge should have granted the motion for a mistrial based on the efforts of Congresswoman Waters...

    Richard Painter, the chief White House ethics lawyer under President George W. Bush, tore into Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell over his plans for the Senate impeachment trial of President Trump. "The oath of loyalty is to the United States of America, not to Donald Trump. These senators, Democrats and Republicans, have an obligation to hear the facts, to hear witnesses, and make a decision," Painter said Thursday on CNN's Anderson Cooper 360. "And for Mitch McConnell to say he’s working with the White House, coordinating with the defendant in this trial before the trial has even begun, is atrocious....

    In the early twentieth century, a racist named William Joseph Simmons decided to revive the Ku Klux Klan. What did he decide to name the KKK's new handbook? He called it "The Kloran" (a portmanteau of "Klan" and "Koran"). Why did Simmons use a play on the Quran, Islam's holiest book, for the new handbook of the KKK? Did it have anything to do with the fact that Muhammad, the prophet of Islam who delivered the Quran, bought, owned, sold, and traded black African slaves and hated Jews (views shared by the Klan)? David Wood discusses the issue.

    President Trump has attacked the judiciary like few U.S. leaders before him, disparaging judges and their rulings as “dangerous,” “horrible” and “a complete and total disgrace.” Some of his supporters and fellow Republicans applaud and parrot him, but U.S. District Judge Carlton Reeves said he hears something sinister: echoes of a time when the Ku Klux Klan and the architects of the Jim Crow South attacked the courts for chipping away at segregation and racism. In a speech to the University of Virginia School of Law on Thursday, Reeves publicly criticized Trump’s aggressive responses to his administration’s losses in court...

    What started out as an attempt to divert attention from Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam’s casual endorsement of infanticide during a radio show by hyping the discovery of a photo of a person in black face make-up standing next to another person wearing a Ku Klux Klan hood, mask and cloak in Eastern Virginia Medical School’s 1984 yearbook has turned into a scandal exposing top Democrats in the state. At first, Northam tried apologizing, but once he realized that the person in blackface was not him, he denied being either person in the photo and said he didn’t know how the...

    A march attended by Antifa to commemorate the anniversary of last summer’s Charlottesville rally devolved into an anti-police protest on Saturday night. Shortly before a pre-planned evening rally to mark the anniversary of a campus confrontation between torch-carrying white nationalists and counterprotesters, activists unfurled a banner that read, “Last year they came w/ torches. This year they come w/ badges.” “Why are you in riot gear? We don’t see no riot here,” Antifa members chanted Saturday evening. Footage of the march is circulating on social media.

    An interesting phenomenon in politics is the flip flop. What would cause a politician who takes a stand on an issue to reverse himself and take precisely the opposite stand on the same issue? Even more interesting is the about face or volte face. The volte face goes beyond the flip flop because it represents a total and usually lasting shift of course, as when Reagan abandoned the Democratic Party and became a Republican. More interesting even than the volte face is when a whole group or party makes this shift. Perhaps the most dramatic example in our lifetime is...

    I own Ku Klux Klan regalia. I use it as a teaching tool in my history classes — oh, and I’m black. These three facts never fail to produce open-mouthed curiosity or incredulity. The most obvious question is how the regalia came into my possession. With a straight face, I say that in the late 1980s the Klan was going through hard times so they started an Affirmative Action program for self-hating minorities. Some people — amazingly — believe that, and some people don’t. (I confess. I have a devilish sense of humor!) The real answer is that before becoming...

    DETROIT (AP) — A black 14-year-old boy who got lost in a Detroit suburban neighborhood while trying to get to school was shot at by a white homeowner after knocking on a door to ask directions, prosecutors said Friday, citing home security video and the account of the boy. Jeffery Zeigler, a retired Detroit firefighter, was arraigned Friday on charges including assault with intent to murder. Oakland County sheriff's deputies were called to Zeigler's Rochester Hills' home about 8:20 a.m. Thursday after a woman told 911 that her husband had chased a black male who tried to break in. Deputies...

    Happy New Year! We always approach a new year with anticipation, hope, and also some worries. Last year was one of the strangest political years I have seen in some time. A new Republican president spent his first year pursuing more or less the same foreign policy as his Democratic predecessor and the Democratic Party spent the year looking under every rock in the U.S. for a “Russian connection” or any other reason to see him impeached over it. The neocon-dominated foreign policy establishment on both the Left and Right were so furious that candidate Trump dared suggest we could...

    Francis denigrates soldiers, referring to us as "warmongers." Francis is now denigrating soldiers as "warmongers."  See here. (Vatican Radio) Pope Francis celebrated the Feast of All Souls Day on Thursday commemorating all those who have died in war, reminding humanity not to forget past lessons and warning that the only fruit yielded by conflict is death. His words of warning and his powerful condemnation of warmongers came during his homily at the Sicily-Rome American War Cemetery some 50 kilometers south of Rome. _____________________________________ The Catechism of the Catholic Church (2310), explains that, "Those who are sworn to serve their country...

    With the Democrats in full attack mode, shamelessly exploiting the tragic events of Charlottesville and eradicating any monuments that implied a racist past, Conservatives are now on all media platforms decrying the attempt to whitewash the racist history of the Democrat Party; the party to whom almost all of those depicted in the monuments aligned with. I was one of a group of black conservatives who've been sounding the alarm bells on this topic for decades. My very first op-ed bore the frustration of the party that was born by abolitionists to oppose slavery was being falsely accused of racism...

    The Washington Examiner spoke with Noam Chomsky, the far left MIT professor, about the anarchist protest group Antifa. Chomsky’s view of the group was not what you would call a ringing endorsement: “As for Antifa, it’s a minuscule fringe of the Left, just as its predecessors were,” Noam Chomsky told the Washington Examiner. “It’s a major gift to the Right, including the militant Right, who are exuberant.”… Chomsky said, “what they do is often wrong in principle – like blocking talks – and [the movement] is generally self-destructive.” “When confrontation shifts to the arena of violence, it’s the toughest and...
