  • Loeffler: I’ll Debate Warnock ‘As Many Times as He Wants’ ‘to Show How Radical His Agenda Is’

    11/17/2020 9:22:44 AM PST · by rktman · 17 replies ^ | 11/16/2020 | Ian Hatchett
    On Monday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Ingraham Angle,” Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R-GA) accepted Democratic opponent Rev. Raphael Warnock’s challenge to three debates and said she will debate Warnock “as many times as he wants.” Because she welcomes the chance “to show how radical his agenda is,” and “show what I’ve done for Georgians since getting into the Senate in January.” Host Laura Ingraham asked, “Warnock has challenged you to three debates. Will you take him up on the challenge?” Loeffler responded, “Absolutely, Laura. I would welcome another chance to debate Raphael Warnock. Look, we had a debate. I...

  • INSURRECTION: Civil Rights Leader Shelby Steele to Mark Levin: 'Blacks Have Never Been Less Oppressed'

    PJ Media ^ | 7 June 2020 | Jeff Reynolds
    In a remarkable soliloquy, Shelby Steele dominated his interview with Mark Levin with an excoriation of the riots and looting that have taken place over the past couple of weeks. Steele, an African-American veteran of the civil rights movement of the 1960s and a best-selling author, appeared on the June 7 episode of Life, Liberty, and Levin to say the protesters have nothing new to say, and that blacks have never been less oppressed in American society. Steele fully rejects the concept of systemic racism. Steele held court for the first eight minutes and fifty seconds of the program, and...

    RUSH: First, Jim Geraghty. Folks, this is so right on the money. “The more time I spend covering politics,” Mr. Geraghty writes, “the more I’m convinced that a significant chunk of grassroots political activists aren’t really arguing about politics at all. These folks are actually grappling with personal psychological issues and projecting it onto the world of politics. Every problem they had with a parent is projected onto authority figures. “Every religious person who ever scolded them or made them feel guilty becomes the embodiment of organized religion and demonstrates its menace. Because they’ve had a bad experience with a...
  • Mike Rowe Wades in to Nike-Kaepernick Controversy in BIG WAY

    One shining beacon of light, however, has been Mike Rowe; former host of Dirty Jobs, and outspoken American whose views don’t always line up with the liberal media’s. The problem is, unlike some of the other blathering idiots that we are forced to endure on television, Rowe is eloquent, thoughtful, fair, and honest. Those traits are so unforgivably rare these days that even the left-leaning media cannot deny what he has to say. Now, 17 years to the day removed from one of our darkest hours, Mike Rowe has spoken again, and he’s made a suggestion that the nation can...

    When a federal judge in Tucson ruled a state law unconstitutional this week, it ended a 10-year saga that once consumed Curtis Acosta's life — but also led to ethnic studies programs across the country. “This has been a hard journey to get to this point,” Acosta said when we met last month, the same week he was testifying in the case and under a gag order. "It's like, 'don't mess it up now.'" It was the second time Acosta had gone to court in an attempt to restore Mexican American studies at Tucson Unified School District. The first suit,...
  • Female Student Shaves Head to Fight 'Gender Norms'

    When a kid goes off to college, you expect him or her to be learning how to handle the reality of adulthood. That's literally the point of college. But here we have the exploits of feminist activist Yvonne Nguyen, who has shaved her head to make ... a STATEMENT. She didn't shave it to support a friend who is fighting cancer, though -- that's always a great move. Nor did she do it because she just likes the way it looks. While it's not my thing, I'm not the one who has to wear it, so more power to her....
  • Josh Whedon warns Trump may start killing gay people

    Hollywood director Josh Whedon has gone off the deep end in his opposition to President Trump. He's apparently something of a celebrity for helming cult projects like "Firefly" and "Serenity." All the more reason to ignore him? Perhaps, but what fun would that be? Whedon created a pro-Hillary ad during the campaign that obviously, had little influence on the outcome. So he's been keeping up a regular tweetstorm since the election warning us about Donald Trump. Recently, he sort of lost it. He retweeted a link to a story about gays being murdered by Muslims in Chechnya by hinting it...

    Rye Playland was shut down Tuesday after cops scuffled with Muslims upset that women wearing head scarves were barred from the rides, witnesses said. Fifteen people, including three women, were charged with disorderly conduct and assault in the chaos, authorities said. The Westchester County park was packed with Muslims celebrating Eid-ul-Fitr - the holiday marking the end of the Islamic holy month of Ramadan. One woman, Entisai Ali, began arguing with cops over the amusement park's head scarf, or hijab, rule, said Dena Meawad, 18, of Bay Ridge, Brooklyn. The ban, which is not Muslim specific, was imposed about 3...

    When Lulwah Abdul Rahman protested against her father's rejection of all would-be husbands because they were from outside her tribe, her life and career were shattered. Her father locked her in the family home, revoked her right to work at a bank and beat her. When she filed a case to lift her father's guardianship, he consigned her to a mental institution to "discipline" her, she says. "The laws and the society confer absolute power on the father and brother, regardless of how cruel or incompetent they are,'' says Ms Abdul Rahman, 28, who has fled her home and currently...

    PravdABDNC is doing their primary job as the propaganda arm of the obama regime. They have to dismiss the grass roots Tea Parties as a Right Wing movement for fear that Americans will understand that there is a real uprising. The last thing the Establishmedia can afford is that America realize that Hope and Change is really a new cliche for the old Tax and Waste. The fact is this is not a partisan movement but hard working Americans tired of the District of Corruption. This is a spontaneous revolt at the corruption that has permeated our gummit that is...
  • ‘Truth to Power’ Gap (Politicians and journalists are petrified 'coalition of the oppressed')

    Politicians and journalists are petrified of seeming hostile toward members of the “coalition of the oppressed.”‘Speak truth to power,” a phrase of Quaker origins adopted by campus radicals, Hollywood gadflies, and establishment journalists, has become shorthand for bravely criticizing government, big corporations, and other stereotypical villains. But where’s the bravery? I don’t know many journalists who are afraid of the government, and most make their living from big corporations. Sure, liberals — which most journalists are — are afraid of what conservatives will do in power and vice-versa. But they aren’t very afraid of what government will do to them,...

    A study from the Global Terrorism Research Centre at Monash University suggests that Australia's approach to stopping terrorism might actually be encouraging it. Waleed Aly from the centre says the aggressive police approach is alienating young Muslim men, who may be more likely to turn to radical groups as a result. He says a community-based approach may be more effective than a hardline approach.

    For eleven days in 2001, two blacks ran our country. It's their example and their achievement—and not the culture of failure fomented by the leftovers of the Movement—that must set a new agenda for black Americans. Let me tell you something about [n-word]s, the oppressed minority within our minority. Always down. Always out. Always complaining that they can't catch a break. Notoriously poor about doing for themselves. Constantly in need of a leader but unable to follow in any direction that's navigated by hard work, self-reliance. And though they spliff and drink and procreate their way onto welfare doles...

    I am curious why none of the media covers the most important aspect of the Malvo shootings. If you look at Newspapers on the dates when the shootings are underway you discover something I find quite interesting. The shootings begin to dominate the news the day before the debate on the Iraq war starts and they catch them the day after the declaration of war??? If you ask most people "do you remember the debate about starting the second Iraq war", they will all answer "yes of course". But if you followup with the question "name one point in the...
