  • Schools Ban Classic Novels As Much For Laziness And Ignorance As Politics

    Removing time-tested classics and assigning easy fiction with leftist themes fails in cultivating any love of reading in the students that need it most.Burbank Unified School District in California recently made headlines with its decision to ban the classic novels “To Kill a Mockingbird,” “Of Mice and Men,” “The Cay, Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry,” and “The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.” District leaders apparently responded to several complaints from parents who took issue with the purported racism of the books as well as incidents of white students taunting their nonwhite peers with racist language from their assigned reading. Yet,...

    Hungary’s Prime Minister Viktor Orbán lambasted billionaire plutocrat George Soros as “one of the most corrupt people in the world” after he called on the European Union to make Hungary and Poland submit to “open society” values. “George Soros is threatening Hungary and Poland,” Prime Minister Orbán told Kossuth Rádió on Friday, referencing the 90-year-old arch-activist’s public lobbying of the EU deprive the conservative-led central European countries of funding. “George Soros is one of the most corrupt people in the world; he has plenty of politicians in his pocket who now want to blackmail Hungary and Poland for access to...

    Just how much of a leftist is Joe Biden? Remarks that Biden made in December 2019 about the flexible abilities of coal miners are a revelatory starting point. Campaigning in New Hampshire, the former vice president argued with considerable pique, "Anybody who can go down 3,000 feet in a mine can sure as hell learn to program as well. ...
  • Far left already plotting takeover of Biden administration

    The dirty little secret of this presidential campaign may be that while Joe Biden ran as a moderate his administration will be run by the far left, led by running mate Kamala Harris, U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren and U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her “squad.” The planned progressive takeover is already underway. Warren has been aggressively lobbying for a prominent Cabinet post for months after she was left out as a vice presidential pick. You can expect that lobbying effort to ratchet up to a fever pitch if Biden wins the White House. Other Massachusetts Democrats, dominated by the far...
  • Ex-lawmaker’s son charged in planning sophisticated attacks against Seattle police

    The stepson of a former Democratic state lawmaker is charged with assaulting a police officer and planning sophisticated attacks against police. The video of the assault, which showed an officer hit in the helmet with a bat, went viral after a night of intense, escalating violence against police officers. Jacob Greenberg, 19, is in King County jail on charges of assault in the first degree, attempted arson in the first degree, and reckless burning in the first degree (a charge from an earlier case). Note: charging documents misspell his last name as “Greenburg.” His alleged accomplice has been identified as...
  • ‘The Great Reset’: World leaders to harness COVID and pursue 'sinister' climate agenda (video)

    Sky News host Rowan Dean says the next World Economic Forum in Davos has morphed from a “jet-setter climate gabfest” into a sinister “anti-democratic enterprise designed to destroy your job, steal your prosperity and rob your kids of a future”. “It's a hardcore leftist eco-horror show replete with quasi fascism,” he said. Mr Dean highlighted what he described as a “disturbing trend among many of the world's left-wing elites to increasingly conflate COVID-19 with climate change. “Many are going so far as to suggest that all the measures applied to the coronavirus, the lockdowns, the destruction of businesses, the suppression...
  • 5 Major Reasons Liberation Theology Is Terrible Theology: Christians intent on keeping the faith must be fully aware of the many problems with Pope Francis' leftist encyclical

    Liberation theology is in the news again, as Pope Francis days ago tossed his own “October surprise” into the American election in the form of “Fratelli Tutti.” While pundits debate the encyclical’s possible effect on the Nov. 3 election, the circular letter, which rails at capitalism as inadequate to meet basic human needs, provides further evidence of this pope’s leftist leanings and earned immediate praise from one of liberation theology’s founding fathers, Leonardo Boff.Since the George Floyd death in late May, Protestant and Catholic faith leaders have been commenting on race. Anglican pastors have said racism is structural and...
  • The Hostile Takeover We’re Resisting Has to Do With Ideology Not Race

    If you listen to the left, you would think that conservative Americans are primarily White racists who want to preserve a White America. These White nationalists, frightened by foreign immigration and terrified by the rising prominence of Black Americans, have aligned themselves with Donald Trump in order to “make America White again.” In reality, while this may speak for a tiny minority of conservatives, it does not speak for the masses. It is a destructive ideology we resist. Race is not the issue. Our universities have shifted dramatically to the left, to the point that, in 2016, a Harvard student...

    Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin blasted the medical team at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center Monday, going as far as calling for the "defunding" of the hospital after President Trump announced he would return to the White House that evening. Trump tweeted Monday afternoon: "I will be leaving the great Walter Reed Medical Center today at 6:30 P.M. Feeling really good! Don’t be afraid of Covid. Don’t let it dominate your life. We have developed, under the Trump Administration, some really great drugs & knowledge. I feel better than I did 20 years ago!"

    by Ron Kersten A sixth grade teacher threw a child out of virtual class and then belittled him for naming President Donald Trump as a person he "admired." Brendan Stanton, a middle school teacher at Perry G. Keithley Middle School in Seattle, deleted the child's answer and kicked him out of the online classroom for a whole period. Stanton then went on a rant about the president to sixth graders -- all caught on video. When the child's mother, a Hispanic woman, complained to him, he lied and misled her about what happened. Unfortunately for Brandon Stanton, the mother...

    Wanted to give a tip of the hat to Pres. Trump and his stating that he will be defunding so-called critical race theory which really is the biggest pile of garbage ever invented by the human mind. It is the brain child, so called, of these small bitter little professors who were radicals in an earlier generation. This was really the last domino in the series. Trump has hammered the media, tech, Hollywood, idiot sports stars but what about the most important one. Colleges and universities where these weak little 18 year old minds so easily get twisted into pretzels....

    In comparing the DNC and RNC, the optics and the policy contrasts could not have been clearer. And that was even before the fireworks. In the past two weeks of conventions, during which DemocratsÂ’ media champions have increasingly raised alarms about the direction of the race, is that this year the optics of these conventions mattered most, and could not have been more different. And they should worry Democrats. Very few people tune in to these things who arenÂ’t already decided about who they want to support. Undecideds are often the spouse of the decided viewer, gleaning information about what...

    House GOP leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) told Breitbart News exclusively this weekend that he is concerned Google is attempting to influence the 2020 presidential election with a “tremendous amount of power” it wields to control “what people think or see” through its monopoly search power. Appearing on Breitbart News Saturday on SiriusXM 125 the Patriot Channel this weekend, McCarthy said that Breitbart News has “been at the forefront” of exposing big tech. He pointed to Breitbart News uncovering video of an internal Google meeting of senior executives in the wake of the 2016 election when they promised to use...

    Cultural revolutions are insidious and not just because they seek to change the way people think, write, speak, and act. They are also dangerous because they are fueled by self-righteous sanctimoniousness, expressed in seemingly innocuous terms such as “social activism,” “equality,” and “fairness.”The ultimate aim of the Jacobin, Bolshevik, or Maoist is raw power—force of the sort sought by Hugo Chavez or the Castro dynasty to get rich, inflict payback on their perceived enemies, reward friends, and pose as saviors.Cubans and Venezuelans got poor and killed; woke Chavezes and Castros got rich and murderous.Leftist agendas are harder to thwart than...

    The legendary actor has stakes in businesses affected by the pandemic. The coronavirus pandemic has not only stopped Robert De Niro from working, but it's taken quite a bite of his paycheck as well. In court, De Niro's estranged wife Grace Hightower asked for an emergency order for her husband, 76, to raise her monthly American Express credit card limit from $50,000 to $100,000, according to Page Six. Hightower's lawyer told the judge that De Niro had cut her credit card limit from $100,000, also claiming that she and her two children have been banned from the actor's New York...
