    The Rev. Al Sharpton delivered an impassioned eulogy Monday for Dexter Wade, a 37-year-old Black man who was run over by an off-duty police officer in Jackson, Miss., and buried in a potter’s field without his family’s knowledge. “What happened to Dexter is a disgrace, a national outrage, and should be treated as such,” Sharpton said at the New Horizon Church International. “It is time for the mayor and the city council to stand up for Dexter. How do you explain how a young man ends up buried? The autopsy said that he had a state ID in his front...

    The move by market agency Fitch Ratings to downgrade the United States’ debt rating has startled lawmakers and policymakers alike, who said Wednesday that they were perplexed by the move amid strong recent economic indicators. In addition, news Wednesday that U.S. political instability reflected in the Jan. 6, 2021, insurrection at the Capitol was a factor in the downgrading has further confused the Beltway, which was already reeling from a third indictment of former President Trump. Fitch downgraded its issuer default rating for the U.S. on Tuesday evening, surprising investors, roiling equity markets and sending bond yields higher Wednesday morning....

    With all that’s happened, much of it negative, during the Biden administration, it’s easy to forget just how bad the withdrawal from Afghanistan was. With time, things fade, but the disaster that unfolded remains one of the lowest points in American history. That it was completely preventable, caused by one arrogant, egotistical man only makes the situation more tragic.As American troops oversaw the emergency evacuation of remaining US personnel, which was only necessary because of the total collapse of the Afghan military, suicide bombers targeted one of the entry gates to Kabul’s main airport. The results were horrific, with hundreds...

    U.S. Marine Corps veteran Daniel Penny was reportedly indicted by a Manhattan grand jury on Wednesday for defending New York City subway passengers from an erratic and threatening homeless man.The incident in question occurred on May 21, when Jordan Neely — who had been arrested 44 times for “criminal conduct” and, at the time, “had an outstanding warrant for felony assault” — began threatening and getting violent with NYC subway passengers. During the episode, Neely allegedly kept repeating the phrases, “I’m going to kill you,” “I’m prepared to go to jail for life,” and “I’m willing to die.”In response, Penny...

    Former President Donald Trump has sparked outrage by sharing images showing him holding a baseball bat next to Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s head — and calling him “a degenerate psychopath” who “hates the USA!” Trump, 76, shared the image — featured in a link to an article — on his Truth Social platform Thursday as he devoted his day to attacking the prosecutor for pursuing a case over the “hush money” payout to porn star Stormy Daniels. “They are HUMAN SCUM!” he wrote in one post asking why Bragg “refuses to do the right thing and ‘call it a...

    Former Vice President Mike Pence on Friday condemned the attack on Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-Calif.) husband at the couple’s San Francisco home. “This is an outrage and our hearts are with the entire Pelosi family. ⁦We pray Paul will make a full recovery,” Pence tweeted. “There can be no tolerance for violence against public officials or their families. This man should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.” Police said David Depape violently assaulted Paul Pelosi around 2:30 a.m. Friday. Authorities arrived at the home for a “priority well-being check” and found the two men tussling over a...

    It is amazing that the “Let’s go, Brandon” phenomenon is still being hotly debated on social media and the airwaves. Activist media outlets and their employees have been losing their collective minds over the chant, which became a sensation after a so-called reporter at a NASCAR event tried to convince viewers that the audience was chanting “Let’s go, Brandon,” when they were really chanting “F*ck Joe Biden.”RedState’s Bonchie pointed out how members of the activist media were upset at the crude comments about their dear leader. The Washington Post posted a piece whining about Biden critics using the chant to...

    This new run on the outrage treadmill projects the contemporary left’s obsession with race and racism onto the right.In a 1994 New York Times op-ed, the famed linguist Steven Pinker introduced the “euphemism treadmill,” the idea that as much as we keep replacing more benign-sounding terms for those that have acquired a negative valence, ultimately, “concepts, not words, are in charge,” so when we “give a concept a new name, … the name becomes colored by” our underlying negative associations once more over time. Eventually a new name has to be invented, and the game starts all over again.Thus, we...

    The Senate parliamentarian has nixed Democrats back-up plan for getting immigration reform into a sweeping spending bill, handing them a second huge loss in less than 10 days.Democrats had pitched parliamentarian Elizabeth MacDonough on legalizing millions of illegal invaders by making a change to the date. But MacDonough told Democrats that the option was a non-starter, according to a copy of the guidance obtained by The Hill. Democrats are pursuing other back-up plans with the Senate referee, according to a source familiar with Democrats’ strategy.

    NBC anchor Chuck Todd said Sunday on “Meet the Press” that the outrage parents are experiencing over critical race theory was “manufactured.” PBS reporter Amna Nawaz said, “Specific to this idea of critical race theory. I spent time reporting on this county in Virginia about an hour outside of Washington. To your point, this is something mobilizing people and resonating very deeply. It was about a 100-degree day, dozens and dozens and dozens of parents, mostly white in this largely affluent county, showed up to a school board meeting, for in the first one they attended, specifically because of this...

    If an incredibly diverse film featuring woke politics and broad representation both in front of and behind the camera can't satisfy the mob, nothing will.Will anything ever be enough to satisfy the woke mob? One might think that a cast filled with non-white actors might win them over. Or, maybe a movie celebrating immigrants and Latino culture and identity could excite? But of course not, that would make far too much sense.Movie-musical “In the Heights” is under fire for “insufficient representation” in the cast. Apparently, having a black and Latino cast is no longer sufficient, as intersectionality dictates that this...

    CNN anchor Brian Stelter said Sunday on his show “Reliable Sources” that the news media is nationalizing outrage to the point that it is “almost paragraphic.” Time magazine columnist David French said, “What’s really important to understand is we live in something called negative partisanship. That means people are Republicans not so much because they love Republican ideas but because they dislike Democrats. People are Democrats not because they like the ideals but because they don’t like Republicans. There is a market for justification of that animosity. In other words, if I’m on Twitter, at any moment, there’s always somebody...

    The horrors of experimentation on aborted babies are too easily purged from our thoughts, but they should stoke our national conscience.This article is about gruesome subject matter.Child sacrifice strains the limits of moral relativity, yet too often abortion gets a pass. There are various arguments why, but at least it’s a debate. In contrast, most Americans are only semi-conscious of the use of aborted babies for medical experiments. Our tax dollars pay for it through the National Institutes of Health, but more often than not, we never hear about it. In a recent Newsweek editorial, David Daleiden reminded the public...
