    A national civil rights leader is calling on Nevada to investigate a prominent Las Vegas businessman and Republican donor following allegations he repeatedly used racial slurs in the workplace and once pulled a gun on a Black truck driver. The Rev. Al Sharpton wrote a letter to Nevada Attorney General Aaron Ford calling for an investigation into Don Ahern, who made his name and fortune as a construction equipment tycoon and has become a prominent supporter of former President Donald Trump and other GOP candidates, including congressional hopeful John Lee. Sharpton’s call for an investigation, first reported by The Hill...

    CNN commentator Van Jones said Vice President Harris went from “cringe to cool” in 24 hours, as videos of her continue to go viral on TikTok. “There’s something happening that’s hard to quantify, because what’s happening on TikTok right now, is extraordinary,” Jones said Monday on CNN. “All the things that were cringey about Kamala, her laugh, the coconut tree comment, being unburdened by what — all those weird things she’s said.” She’s gone from cringe to cool in 24 hours as a whole generation has taken all that content and remixed it in all these incredible TikTok videos,” he...

    PORTLAND, Maine (AP) — Three Army Reserve officers were disciplined for dereliction of duty following a rampage in which a reservist killed 18 people in Maine, according to an Army report that cited communication failures within the chain of command and between military and civilian hospitals, among other shortcomings. The report released Tuesday unearthed “a series of failures by unit leadership,” said Lt. Gen. Jody Daniels, chief of the Army Reserves, and administrative actions taken against the officers could prevent their further military advancement. The officers weren't identified. Survivors and victims’ family members have been critical over missed opportunities to...

    Kamala Harris’ political history proves that putting her in power is a bad move that hurts Americans.. The powers that be decided this week that despite her disastrous approval numbers and long history of unpopularity among Democrat voters, Vice President Kamala Harris will take President Joe Biden’s place as the blue party’s presumptive 2024 candidate. Here are 30 reasons why Harris, whether through Biden’s resignation or the upcoming election, would make a terrible president. 1. She Covered Up Biden’s Cognitive Decline..

    Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will meet former President Donald Trump at his private residence in Mar-a-Lago, Florida, on Friday, according to two announcements by Trump on the Truth Social media platform. The meeting marks a thaw in the relationship between Netanyahu and Trump, after several years in which Trump resented Netanyahu for congratulating President Joe Biden for his election win in 2020. The two worked together well during Trump’s tenure in the White House; Trump referred to Netanyahu by his nickname, “Bibi,” in his posts. At the same time, Netanyahu’s office revealed that he would meet with Biden at...
  • Court fight over same-sex marriage aims to bring down landmark ruling that made it legal

    Many disputes arose a few years ago when the then-liberal U.S. Supreme Court created, in a decision condemned as unrelated to the Constitution, same-sex "marriage" for the entire nation. One of the more vicious was a series of lawsuits against a Kentucky county clerk who declined to issue ANY marriage licenses for a time because of the conflict the court decision created with her own constitutionally protected religious rights. An activist federal judge, David Bunning, took up the LGBT agenda and put Kim Davis in jail for a time. And two same-sex duos sued her for damages.

    The San Francisco Chronicle ^ | July 23, 2024 | Nuala Bishari
    Three years ago, San Francisco launched an experiment to give 150 pregnant Black and Pacific Islander women $1,000 a month, no strings attached, for the duration of their pregnancy and six months after the birth. *** Now, that effort is almost certainly about to come to a screeching halt. And another guaranteed income program to assist San Francisco’s transgender residents — who are 18 times more likely to experience homelessness than the general population — already has been shut down. Participants were only given a month’s notice before being cut off. *** So, how could two successful programs, lauded by...

    Kamala Devi Harris was born to an Indian mother and a Jamaican father in Oakland, California on October 20, 1964. She is, in part, a descendant of a Jamaican slave owner, as Harris’ father, Donald J. Harris, explained in a January 2019 essay which he wrote about his family’s heritage. Both sides of Harris’ family were upper-class political figures in their respective countries, with money and power. Harris’ father was a professor of economics at Stanford University who served as an adviser to multiple Jamaican prime ministers. Both of Harris’ parents were far leftists who, in the early 1960s, were...

    The leftist Occupy Democrats group shared reminders on Tuesday for people worried about Vice President Kamala Harris running against former President Donald Trump and losing. “Important reminders!” the group’s Facebook post read. “Also for all those who still have PTSD about Hillary losing in 2016 and worry for same fate for Kamala, we are in such different times,” the post read: 1. Hillary won the national popular vote. 2. The threat of Trump, the Supreme Court, and the Republican Party is much more apparent. 3. Democratic Party is way more unified today than it was in 2016. 4. Trump has...

    President Biden on Tuesday made his first public appearance since dropping out of the 2024 presidential race, arriving at Dover Air Force Base ahead of a planned return to the White House. Biden, 81, saluted and smiled as he got out of his motorcade and walked slowly toward Air Force One while reporters shouted questions at him asking how he felt. “Well,’’ the president responded twice. He then lumbered toward the jet and held onto its railing as he slowly climbed up the steps, holding a blue COVID mask in his left hand.

    White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said Tuesday on ABC’s “The View” that President Joe Biden dropped out of the presidential race because “our democracy is at stake.” Jean-Pierre said, “What we saw from this president in the last couple days was a human decency, a good man, someone who decided not to put himself first –like we’ve seen before — but to put the American people first and this country first.” She continued, “I would also say folks who have not seen the letter that he penned on Sunday and shared and released, you should. I think the letter,...

    Reuters by way of Yahoo ^ | 07/23/2024 | Jason Lange
    Vice President Kamala Harris opened up a marginal two-percentage-point lead over Republican Donald Trump after President Joe Biden ended his re-election campaign and passed the torch to her, a Reuters/Ipsos poll found. The poll, conducted on Monday and Tuesday, followed both the Republican National Convention where Trump on Thursday formally accepted his party's nomination and the Biden announcement on Sunday he was leaving the race and endorsing Harris. Harris, whose campaign says she has secured the Democratic nomination, led Trump 44% to 42% in the national poll, a difference within the 3-percentage-point margin of error. Harris and Trump were tied...

    Sen. Bob Menendez (D-N.J.) plans to resign effective Aug. 20, according to two people briefed on the decision, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss internal deliberations. The longtime Democratic lawmaker was convicted on July 16 of taking bribes from three businessmen who showered him and his wife with cash, gold bars and a Mercedes-Benz, an extravagant bounty for his help securing deals with foreign officials and trying to derail several criminal investigations in New Jersey.

    The St. Louis Cardinals deny that their players engaged in a Trump-inspired home run celebration on Sunday, but good luck telling that to Keith Olbermann. On Sunday, Alec Burleson hit a home run in the third inning of the Cardinals’ game against the Braves. As he was rounding the bases, Burleson and a couple of teammates in the dugout put a hand over their ears. They raised a fist in what appeared to be a tribute to President Trump’s reaction following his assassination attempt on July 13. Is this a Trump home run celebration by the Cardinals? pic.twitter.com/f2XrQr0q3u — Talkin’...

    The Hancock, Michigan, Police Department posted a press release Sunday warning about “three different incidents that appeared to be politically motivated,” with the targets being “Trump and Law Enforcement supporters.” This is what happens when billions of corporate media dollars are used to smear the decent, hardworking, everyday people who support former President Donald Trump as Nazis…. One of the victims is an 80-year-old man who was run down in his yard while putting up a pro-Trump sign: At approximately 5:45PM, in the 1600 blk of Anthony Street, the same subject driving an ATV (4-wheel) allegedly with intention to do...

    As thousands of Republican voters flocked to Milwaukee to officially declare former President Donald Trump as their nominee for the presidency, reporters and talking heads remain transfixed on what kind of vision Trump will lay out for a second administration. Unfortunately, we already know. Despite his best efforts to distance himself from Project 2025, Trump has made clear that his platform for a second turn as president will dismantle America's promise as a welcoming nation of possibility. No matter what he chooses to call it, he is committed to enacting disastrous immigration proposals that will set our country back for...
