    One of the men charged in the deadly Kansas City parade shooting admitted that he “randomly picked” a target to fire at during a heated argument, while the other gunman was caught on video shooting his gun while falling over, according to court documents that paint a picture of how chaotic and quickly the scene unfurled. Lyndell Mays, 23, and Dominic Miller, 18, were part of two separate groups bickering at the Kansas City Chiefs’ Super Bowl victory parade when Mays claimed he feared for his life and fired his weapon first, according to Mays’ interview with police. Despite hesitating...

    Harvard philosophy professor Dr. Cornel West weighed in on the ongoing protests in reaction to George Floyd's death in police custody -- and the violence and destruction that have taken place in cities across the U.S. over the past several days. West noted that "black faces in high places" were not able to create needed change because they succumbed to the "capitalist economy" and "militarized nation-state." "The Black Lives Matter movement emerged under a black president, black attorney general, and black homeland security and they couldn't deliver," West said about the Obama administration during a CNN interview Friday night.

    Sen. Bernie Sanders endorser and black radical Professor Cornel West explicitly advocated “violence that must flow from below” in a seldom seen video released in January 2015. The comments came in an address to a French institute dedicated to the work of writer Frantz Fanon, one of the thought leaders of the Black Power movement and an acknowledged influence on President Barack Obama.

    Civil rights activist and philosopher Cornel West on Monday endorsed Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders for president. "I endorse Brother @BernieSanders because he is a long-distance runner with integrity in the struggle for justice for over 50 years," West tweeted late Monday night. West went on to say that it's time for Sanders' "prophetic voice to be heard across our crisis-ridden country." While West has been a long time supporter of Sanders (and "not a Hillary Clinton fan at all"), the endorsement comes weeks after Black Lives Matter activists disrupted a Sanders event in Seattle, taking the podium from the self...

    Reacting to President Obama's use of the n-word on Marc Maron's podcast, (Princeton / Harvard Professor) Cornel West called him the first "niggerized" president in an appearance on CNN. West criticized Obama as "a person who is afraid and intimidated when it comes to putting a spotlight on white supremacy." "Too many black people are niggerized," West said Monday on CNN. "I would say the first black president has become the first niggerized black president." "A niggerized black person is a black person who is afraid and scared and intimidated when it comes to putting a spotlight on white supremacy...

    Activist Cornel West says he was disappointed in President Obama's response to this week's shootings in of black men by police in Minnesota and Louisiana. "I thought it was weak," West said, according to The Washington Post. "He's always got to explain to white America how black people are feeling. Black people don't feel as if we're being treated unequally — it's a fact that we're being treated unequally. He sort of always has to serve in this translating role. That's how he rolls, but that's not how I roll." West said while Obama called Thursday's attacks on Dallas police...

    HB 1708 has been introduced in Missouri to restore Second Amendment rights. The bill does this by incrementally removing infringements on the carry of firearms while on public transportation, in churches, and for people between the ages of 18 and 19. The bill has evolved over the past few years. Last year, it passed the House of Representatives but was killed in the Senate by not being brought to a vote. In 2022, the bill again passed the House 101 to 40. It was killed in the Senate by not being brought to a vote. In 2024, the bill is...
  • Kansas City parade shooting suspects are charged as MINORS

    Two teenagers have been charged as juveniles in the Kansas City Chiefs parade shooting, despite a prosecutor previously saying they would be accused as adults. The suspects, who remain unidentified by authorities, are charged with gun-related offenses and resisting arrest, said The Jackson County Family Court division. 'It is anticipated that additional charges are expected in the future as the investigation by the Kansas City Police Department continues,' the Office of the Juvenile Officer said in a statement. Missouri law dictates that juvenile hearings are not open to the public. It's possible the suspects could be charged as adults if...

    I am shocked, shocked! (which is to say I am not shocked at all, nor the least bit surprised) that gunfire broke out as Wednesday’s Super Bowl victory parade in Kansas City and rally was just winding down. Although, as of now, there has been no definitive word about the perpetrators or their motivation, there have been rumors that the incident began with an argument between persons attending the event. If so, it’s a byproduct of the actions, policies, and attitudes of the city’s “leaders.” The climate of crime and murder in Kansas City, Missouri, has been fostered by the...
  • Gavin Newsom Criticizes Gun Violence in Missouri, Doesn’t Mention California Has over 2X the Fatalities

    Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) pointed to Missouri gun laws and blasted the state’s annual gun deaths but failed to mention that California has more than twice as many gun deaths each year. On November 16, 2023, this author wrote a piece highlighting the left’s tendency to point to firearm-related homicide deaths instead of actual homicide numbers. This allows someone like Newsom to avoid mentioning Centers for Disease Control and Prevention numbers showing California had 3,576 firearm deaths in 2021 while Missouri only had 1,414.

    Two of the three suspects currently detained by Kansas City cops over the horror Super Bowl parade mass shooting are juveniles, officials revealed Thursday. Speaking at a press conference outside the city's police headquarters, Kansas City Police Chief Stacey Graves said investigators believe the shooting was triggered by a personal dispute between a small group, and the parade was not the target. The mass shooting on Wednesday saw at least 21 people shot and one killed, and the press conference confirmed the death of a beloved Kansas City radio DJ. 'This was a dispute that ended in gunfire,' said the...

    The deadly shooting at the Kansas City Chiefs’ victory parade that killed one and injured nearly two dozen was the result of a personal dispute that exploded into violence — and cops have detained three people who may be at fault, authorities said Thursday. Kansas City Police Chief Stacey Graves emphasized that the Wednesday afternoon attack on the west side of the city’s landmark Union Station had nothing to do with homegrown terrorism or violent extremism. Instead, the shooting “appeared to be a dispute between several people that ended in gunfire,” Graves told reporters at a Thursday press conference. Two...

    Actor Selma Blair is facing backlash online after an Islamophobic Instagram comment from last week went viral. The comment was made on an Instagram video posted by Abraham Hamra one week ago, in which he calls out U.S. Representatives Rashida Tlaib, D-Mi., and Cori Bush, D-Mo., for being the only two members of Congress to vote against a measure that would prevent anyone who partook in the Oct. 7 terrorist attack on Israel from immigrating to the U.S. Hamra, whose Instagram bio refers to him as a speaker and Syrian Jewish refugee, calls Tlaib a "liar," "moron" and a "hateful...
