  • Black Lives Matter Was Violent From The Start, And Media And Politicians Knew It

    The Black Lives Matter protests are radical, they are violent, and they have claimed innocent lives all over the country. This isn’t a surprise: We’ve watched this movement played out before by many of the exact same leaders and even under the exact same name. Now, through a combination of political foolishness, public amnesia, and willful media gaslighting, America gets to live it all again — and more civilians and police officers are being attacked and even killed.The Black Lives Matter movement isn’t new at all. It’s the same loose collection of good-thinking people concerned over police violence and violent,...
  • A Coach Got Shredded for a T-Shirt, While DeSean Jackson Almost Skated Away Scot-Free Over Hitler Posts

    Our intern Alex covered this, but Im sure you all know the drama thats hit Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson. Yeah, he only posted some anti-Semitic crap on his Instagram account. Yes, its Louis Farrakhan, a vicious anti-Semite who isnt all that bothered when people compare him to Adolf Hitler. Thats what he said in the clip that Jackson posted, which has now been deleted. Needless to say, thats problematic, right? Its wrong in so many ways, and the owner of the Philadelphia Eagles, Jeffrey Lurie, is Jewish. Jackson has apologized, but this notion that youre not anti-Semitic, but...

    I worked in Human Resources for 15 years. You may think this is the group that processes payroll and plans the company picnic. However, when I entered the profession, it was becoming a differentiating factor. The performance management model at General Electric had become a strategic advantage. The focus of my graduate program was measuring and maximizing human capital. Saying human capital is a dirty word now. However, at that time, it was viewed as the ability to measure the knowledge, skill, productivity, skill, and potential of individuals in the workforce. Then the goal was to translate that information into...
  • BLM leader: Whites are subhuman 'genetic defects' Begs 'Allah' to help her 'not kill white folks'

    A co-founder of the Black Lives Matter chapter in Toronto wrote in a now-deleted Facebook post that "white people are a genetic defect of blackness." "Whiteness is not humxness," wrote Yusra Khogali in 2016. "in fact, white skin is sub-humxn." She further said, the Gateway Pundit blog reported, white people "are recessive genetic defects. this is factual." "white ppl need white supremacy as a mechanism to protect their survival as a people because all they can do is produce themselves," she wrote. "black ppl simply through their dominant genes can literally wipe out the white race if we had the...
  • Portland Gets a Taste of Mob's New World as Cops Announce They Will Only Respond to Certain Calls

    In the face of violent protests throughout the nation, the rallying cry by many perpetrating the mayhem is for police to be defunded or disbanded. The people of Portland, Oregon, had a brief glimpse of that reality, as police were forced to ignore all but emergency calls after law enforcement was tied up responding to violent rioting over the Independence Day holiday weekend. Public Information Officer Lt. Tina Jones provided hourly video updates on the situation on the Portland Police Bureau Twitter feed overnight Saturday into early Sunday morning, including announcing that the city would not be able to respond...
  • Pompeo Responds to Susan Rice's 'Crazy' Talk: 'She Has a History of...Lying'

    "To hear Ambassador Rice talk that way, it's just crazy," Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Monday, following Rice's Sunday appearance on "Meet the Press," where she blasted the Trump administration for "incompetence" regarding raw intelligence that Russia paid the Taliban to kill American troops in Afghanistan. In her Sunday appearance, Rice acted as though the unverified intelligence about Russian bounties was factual. "The message to Vladimir Putin is you can kill American service men and women with absolute impunity," she said. "You know, she has a history of going on Sunday shows and lying," Pompeo told Fox News's...
  • The Obxxx Years Sowed the Seeds for the Current Societal Chaos

    07/07/2020 9:46:46 AM PDT · by rktman · 10 replies ^ | 7/7/2020 | Steve McCann
    The election of Barack Obama in 2008 and the unfathomable defeat of his hand-picked successor Hillary Clinton in 2016 rendered inevitable the societal chaos and attempted cultural revolution presently roiling the country. This entire wretched spectacle comes with a label of origin: Manufactured by Obama and Associates. After nearly 40 years of gradual infiltration and eventual domination of the Democrat party, as well as the media, entertainment and education establishments, the radicalized American left in 2008 achieved a major objective. They found their ideal stealth candidate, Barack Obama. Not only was he, beneath the faade of glibness and conviviality, a...

    The Heritage Foundation ^ | July 3, 2020 | Kay Coles James
    Our country is under attack from radical leftists. Mobs rampage through our streets, monuments are being destroyed, and the very law and order that ensures our communities peace and security is being undermined. In far too many instances, those bent on destruction have hijacked protests, creating violence and division and ultimately attacking the very foundation of our nation. For them, its not about resolving race issues; its about using racial discontent to forward their anarchist agenda. One such group is Antifa. While it is widely recognized as a far-left fringe group, another organizationjust as radicalhas managed to drape itself in...

    You want "divisive?" MSNBC is divisive. The vile Al Sharpton described President Trumps speech at Mount Rushmore as a love letter to white supremacy. In Saturday nights PoliticsNation, Sharpton smeared our Founding Fathers, as white supremacists, rather than courageous heroes that founded this great nation. Sharpton even insinuated that Trump wants to take America back to the days of slavery: Yes, you're attempting to take America back indeed, but much further than the 1950s, as has often been assumed. No, after last night's love letter to white supremacy, I'm now convinced that what you're actually reaching for is indeed 1776,...

Some might have known about their respective states' anti-gun regime, especially in California and New Jersey, but a lot of folks found out the hard way when they tried to purchase a firearm in the past few weeks. Stephen Gutowski of the Washington Free Beacon has been on this beat, noting that some California residents have been shocked at how stringent their state's gun laws have become, even mulling running for office to change them. For his latest, he wrote about a US...
  • WSJ Slaps Liberal Media Across the Face for Its Embarrassing Meltdown Over Trump's Mt. Rushmore Speech

    If you read The New York Times, or other liberal publications, and their coverage of President Trumps of his speech at Mount Rushmore, youd think a proto-Nazi rally was held. It was dark and divisive. It was filled by phantom claims, like left-wing mobs running amok and their campaign to erase our history. It was racist. It was a woke review of the speech, which mean it was total garbage. Trump celebrated America, which makes this a rally for white supremacy. This is where we are right now with the Left. Theyre violent, unhinged, historically illiterate, and anti-American. It was...

    The Fourth of July came this year as we have seen a massive movement in the streets, professing to be protests, but seething with a rejection of the American Founding and our institutions. The fine pointsif there are fine pointsget lost, and what comes through is a hatred of America.We find Juneteenth offered now, not only as another day to be celebrated in the annals of freedom, but as a rival and critique of the Fourth of July. We are hearing a revival of the argument made by Chief Justice Taney in the Dred Scott case, and picked up...
  • Beware of politicians using the 'B' word Exclusive: Mychal Massie sees this strategy as '1 giant middle finger to President Trump'

    When I hear the "B" word being used by the media in reference to politicians who supposedly have done something magnanimous for you and me, I immediately become suspicious. That's because my experience tells me, when it comes to politics and the "B" word during a presidential election year, we should pay close attention. That goes triple this presidential election year because the evil ones are out to destroy President Trump and will succeed if we don't stop them. The "B" word is "bipartisan," especially when used as a prefix. Bipartisan is neither defined as nor intended to be...

    On Friday, I watched Tucker Carlson talk about how many politicians are drunk on power in responding to this COVID-19 pandemic, a concern Tucker has repeatedly addressed. The first words of the First Amendment read: "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech " What is unclear about the words, "shall make no law prohibiting the free exercise thereof" of one's religion? And then there's the Second Amendment. Its 27 words are clear and concise, needing no further commentary or regulation: "A well-regulated militia being...

    Advertisers that are now boycotting Facebook to protest "hate speech" have spent years running ads and marketing campaigns on a Russian social media platform that bans gay-rights groups and is known as a haven for white supremacists. Over 100 companies announced a boycott of Facebook last week in protest of divisive political speech on the website. The boycott coincides with a public pressure campaign led by Joe Biden and other top Democrats to press Facebook to enforce stricter control over President Trumps postings. But many of these companiesincluding Coca-Cola, Pepsi, Adidas, and Reebokhave been regular advertisers on VK, a popular...

    Miranda and Hamilton producer Jeffrey Seller took to social media back in May when they were criticized for not vocally supporting Black Lives Matter and allegedly being silent about police brutality amid the George Floyd protests. We spoke out on the day of the Pulse shooting. We spoke out when Vice President Mike Pence came to our show 10 days after the election. That we have not yet firmly spoken the inarguable truth that Black Lives Matter and denounced systematic racism and white supremacy from our official Hamilton channels is a moral failure on our part, Miranda said in a...

The draft policy, if put into effect, would ban the flags display in Department of Defense (DOD) workplaces or public areas by service members and civilian personnel, the Associated Press reported. And CNN reported that military legal personnel are reviewing how such a department-wide ban can be carried out, and...

    The violence in Chicago over Independence Day weekend may not have been quite as bad as the massacre that John wrote about two weeks ago, but it was still pretty awful. There were crowds of people out and about in the Windy City, but not all of them were looking to celebrate our nations independence. By the middle of the day on Sunday, the Associated Press reported that there were at least 13 people killed and nearly 60 more shot around the city. And as it turns out, the AP was lowballing the figures.

    The rapper Snoop Dogg has smeared several prominent black conservatives The Coon Bunch, including Herman Cain, Candace Owens, Paris Dennard, and the Angela Stanton. Snoop Dogg posted a meme on Instagram on Sunday in which the faces of 11 prominent black conservatives were arranged in the style of The Brady Bunch, with the title of the 70s sitcom replaced with The Coon Bunch. "Coon is a common slur used by black Americans against black conservatives, along with Uncle Tom. The term, which dates back to the 19th century, is used today by black people to smear other black people who...

    The small force of American soldiers who marched south with Washington 239 years ago had very few veterans left from the armies of 1775 to 1780. These original Continentals had served their terms of enlistment and had returned to their farms and families. Washington took anyone who would serve, and hundreds of free blacks joined the cause, eager for gainful employment. Of the 2500-strong force who arrived with Washington at Yorktown, as many as 20% were free blacks. They had an inherent genetic advantage over the Europeans. Because their ancestors came from sub-Saharan Africa, they were naturally resistant to malaria,...
