    New polling confirms Americans are not as crazy and clueless as their mainstream media. Despite all the media BS about peaceful protests, Americans are not so willing to go along with ripping down all the statues of heroes and saints, burning and looting the business districts and threats to abolish the police. According to a new poll by Democracy Institute the fallout from the Black Lives Matter protests and riots will win President Trump his reelection.

    Democratic-Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who, as Breitbart News reported, was born in the Bronx and raised in the affluent suburb of Westchester, told Hawaii Democrats on Thursday evening that her life has been shaped by “an unaddressed history of imperialism and poverty.” Ocasio-Cortez was campaigning for Hawaii Democratic congressional candidate Kaniela Ing ahead of this weekend’s primary election and argued that Hawaii felt like a “kindred home” because she also comes “from a place of colonized people.” Ocasio-Cortez said that she and Ing had similar life experiences even though they grew up worlds apart because they both lost their fathers...
  • Venezuelan refugee hits back after Ilhan Omar calls for dismantling America's 'system of oppression'

    A Venezuelan refugee pushed back strongly on Ilhan Omar’s anti-capitalism statements, claiming on “Fox & Friends" that Democrats have a hidden agenda behind their police reform protests. “I think that the big problem that her statement shows is that she revealed her whole intention from the beginning was not about the criminal justice system," said Daniel Di Martino, who grew up in Venezuela and left the country as socialism took hold. "The Democrats have not wanted to pass things like the Justice Act that the GOP proposed in the Senate by Tim Scott,” said Daniel Di Martino, who grew up...

    ----snip---- It is time for Alabama to have two senators, not one, who represent the core conservative values that our citizens hold dear. It is time for Alabama to have two senators, not one, who support the Trump agenda and the conservative movement our president promotes. It is time for Alabama to have two senators, not one, who believe the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights are the bedrock foundation of our nation and not just an antiquated and outdated list of suggestions. I stand ready to give Alabamians the faithful service and honest representation that Doug Jones has failed...

    You should probably get used to seeing headlines like this. With the expansion of the tactic of mobs of protesters and rioters blocking streets and highways, leading to attacks on vehicles and their occupants, more and more motorists seem to be deciding to risk being taken in by the police rather than being beaten or otherwise assaulted. That means that some of them, when pinned in by an angry mob, are choosing to hit the gas and let fortune sort out the rest. That’s what happened in New York City last night. A group had moved to block off...
  • Far-Left’s ‘BREATHE Act’ Calls on States to Expand Voting to ‘Undocumented People’

    The far left, led by Reps. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) and Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), is championing a reform measure dubbed the “BREATHE Act,” which contains a slew of radical proposals, including the call to incentivize states to pass laws that expand voting access, allowing “local and State resident voting for undocumented people.” The proposal, drafted in partnership with the Movement for Black Lives, aims to overhaul the U.S. criminal justice system, providing a range of radical changes — from defunding the police and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to establishing a commission tasked with designing reparations for victims of “mass criminalization.”...

    s New York City suffers an economic crisis on top of the coronavirus pandemic, some are looking back with regrets at the left-wing campaign that forced Amazon to scupper a plan to bring tens of thousands of jobs to the area – arguing this project could have helped the Big Apple weather the storm. “At this time when coronavirus is ravaging incomes across New York, wouldn’t it be nice if the city and state at least knew that one of the world’s largest companies, one of the rare concerns positioned to thrive through the crisis, had made a long-term commitment...

    New York was named after the Duke of York. The Duke of York, King James II, was a prominent slave trader. When will New York (& New York City) be renamed due to it's name being prominently connected to a major slave trader?  "...James Stuart, who later became King James II, was the original governor of the Royal Africa Company and its largest shareholder. Therefore anything named for the Duke of York is, like Penny Lane, tainted by the history of the slave trade. By this logic, we must rename New York."https://spectator.org/yesterday-came-suddenly/  "Island New Amsterdam (New Amsterdam),[53] after the capital...

As long as our economy and political systems prioritize profit without considering who is profiting, who is being shut out, we will perpetuate this inequality,” she said at a livestreamed event in Minnesota on Tuesday. “We cannot stop at [the] criminal justice system. We must begin the work of dismantling the whole system of oppression.” – Ilhan Omar, yesterday Presumably the great dismantling...

Omar tweeted earlier Tuesday that the purpose of the event was...

    Harrowing surveillance footage captured the moment a man was fatally shot while crossing a Bronx street — hand-in-hand with his 6-year-old daughter. The clip, tweeted by Rodney Harrison, the NYPD’s chief of detectives, opens with Anthony Robinson approaching the intersection of Sheridan Avenue and East 170th Street in Mount Eden around 5:50 p.m. Sunday. Clasping his young daughter’s left hand in his right, Robinson, 29, stops at a crosswalk to eye a dark sedan slowing next to them, appearing to check whether the driver was turning into their path. But the driver continues to roll along next to father and...

    At pro-Palestinian Black Lives Matter rallies in New York and Washington, chants were heard calling for “Death to Israel,” “Death to America” and “From Gaza to Minnesota, globalize the Intifada!” Several hundred protesters attended the July 1 demonstration in Brooklyn dubbed as a “Day of Rage” event, set to coincide with the earliest date Israel could begin its plans to apply Israeli law over parts of the West Bank and the Jordan Valley. Speakers issued inflammatory rallying cries that ran the gamut from anti-Semitic and anti-American to just plain absurd. One pro-North Korea activist called for the end of the...

    Senator Ted Cruz blasted anarchists tearing down statues, adding later that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the mob are the exact same extremist base Joe Biden is petrified of upsetting. Cruz (R-TX) was responding to Kimberly Strassel, a Wall Street Journal columnist who reported that Biden, when pressed on the topic of monuments suggested the decision should rest with local governments, but that he “won’t condemn people lawlessly tearing them down.” The Republican congressman replied that Biden’s lack of condemnation is no surprise. “Dems support the riots. The vandals. The anarchists,” he wrote on Twitter. “That’s their base. And they’re terrified...

    New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said Thursday the city is preparing for an in-person reopening of its schools in September, with all the precautions needed to keep the coronavirus at bay, though Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo's office said the mayor does not have the power to make that decision. The head of the city teachers union also cast doubt that a return to in-person classes is a done deal. **SNIP** "You’re going to see constant use of face coverings. They'll be provided for free for anyone who needs them - kids, adults alike," de Blasio said. "Everyone will...

    Leaders of civil rights organizations spoke out Tuesday night after a reporter from a Portland TV station tweeted anti-Palestinian sentiments from a professional account while covering a protest. Jenny Young, a reporter with KOIN, was at a rally at Peninsula Park in North Portland, and tweeted about a speaker who praised the BDS movement. BDS, which stands for Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions, is a Palestinian-led movement, which upholds the principle that Palestinians are entitled to the same rights as the rest of humanity. Young described the speaker, who was not identified, as “openly anti-Zionist”, and the BDS movement as “an anti-Semitic...

"They [surrounded] the vehicle, they began to pelt the vehicle –­ not just one of our police cruisers but two of them –­ and in one instance the rear window of one of our SUVs was broken out.
