  • Forsaken by Dems: Ruben Diaz Sr.’s dire warning after son’s stabbing

    New York Post ^ | December 16, 2021 | Ruben Diaz Sr.
    In June 2020, Bloods gang member Alexis Dubouchet allegedly tried to kill Samuel Diaz, then his supervisor at the New York City Housing Authority. According to police, Dubouchet used a folding knife to stab Diaz in the back of his neck and twice in the head, yelling, “You wanna f- -k with my life?” Although Dubouchet was a career criminal with 20 prior arrests and was charged with attempted murder in the attack on Diaz, he was freed on bail. Now prosecutors say he murdered someone while awaiting trial in the Diaz case, allegedly shooting Anthony Rios, 38, in the...

    It seems bad optics is a Democrat brand, as Queen Nancy displays the height of privilege. The visuals alone would be impressively bad, based alone on the years of racial identity politics being played by Democrats. But once you layer in the politicization of the pandemic for over a year, and the way this past month you have heard from Democrats and media figures about how Republicans are actively trying to kill their own citizens, things appear even more outlandish. It is hardly breaking news when Democrats display double standards, but even by their own recidivist standards, the outbreak of...

    CBS "News" / AT&T ^ | November 3, 2020 | BY KHRISTOPHER J. BROOKS
    Systemic racism has kept the U.S. from reaching its full economic potential, according to a growing body of research. A recent Citigroup study estimated that financial, educational and other inequities between Black and White Americans cost the U.S. a staggering $16 trillion. CBS MoneyWatch spoke with Dana Peterson - formerly global economist at Citigroup, now chief economist for The Conference Board and the lead researcher behind the study - about its findings. This interview has been edited for length and clarity. Q. Your team put the economic cost of racism in the U.S. at $16 trillion - that's a startling...

    Longtime Black Democratic congressional leaders Reps. Maxine Waters and James Clyburn are troubled by the possibility that more Black voters could reelect President Donald Trump for a second term. "I don't even know where any Blacks would be coming from that would be voting for Trump," Waters, D-Calif., said in a Friday interview with SiriusXM's Joe Madison. It just hurts me so bad to see Blacks talking about supporting Trump." While Black Republican voters have always been around, Black voters, especially Black men, appear to be stepping closer to conservative principles. The stamp of approval from some famous, wealthy rappers,...

    This is the most treacherous leftist television ad meant to intimidate minorities, immigrants and the fearful worried that big brother will come get them if their precinct captain checks if they voted. It stresses that while who they vote for is secret, IF they voted is not. It is open public record that can be referenced to see your individual voting action.

    There is not a single Republican that could politically survive after making the racist comments Joe Biden did on Thursday. His original comment that the African American community is not diverse was bad enough, but then he doubled down. "We can build an administration that reflects the full diversity of our nation and the full diversity of the Latino community," Biden said in attempting to clarify his original comments. "Now what I mean [by] full diversity, unlike [the] African-American community and many other communities, you're from everywhere -- from Europe, from [the] tip of South America, all the way to...

    Actor Ryan Reynolds says he and his wife Blake Lively will “always be deeply and unreservedly sorry” for holding their wedding at a former plantation in South Carolina. Reynolds discussed his “shame” over the 2012 wedding at Boone Hall in Charleston County in an interview posted by Fast Company Tuesday. “It’s something we’ll always be deeply and unreservedly sorry for,” he said. “It’s impossible to reconcile. What we saw at the time was a wedding venue on Pinterest. What we saw after was a place built upon devastating tragedy.” The “Deadpool” actor said a “mistake like that can either cause...

A new moniker that will be “inclusive of the Indigenous history that is part of our educational mission” will be unveiled later this year, the living history museum said.

    Spectator USA ^ | February 28, 2019 | J. Arthur Bloom
    The First Lady of Virginia, Pam Northam, wife of Ralph, got herself in hot water this week for handing out cotton to black students while they were on a tour. But the Northams have form when it comes to messy race relations. There’s the whole blackface or KKK costume school photograph business. Then there’s the blacking up as Michael Jackson thing, which Ralph admitted to. Oh, and Ralph Northam’s family owned at least 84 slaves. Northam maintains that he learned about his family’s slave ownership in 2017. That story is harder to believe once you see that three out of...

    PJ Media ^ | June 12, 2020 | Vince Everett Ellison
    For the past few months, we have witnessed the raw and unmasked Democrat Party, live and in living color. Their constituents are rioting, looting, and murdering because they have finally realized that there are only three areas where the government is supremely prolific and highly efficient: theft, incarceration, and killing. Outside this “Iron Triangle” government fails horribly at education, protection, health care, economic development, border security, drug enforcement and infrastructure. Yet after months of economic collapse, pandemic hysteria and racial anarchy, where 60 years of Democrat Party abuse of Black America was revealed, black leadership still chooses the government as...

    The Federalist Papers ^ | August 20, 2017 | By Brian Thomas
    Democrats like to pretend they have a long history of fighting racism, but the truth is that it was Democrats who supported slavery, upheld Jim Crow laws, and were so deeply involved in the Ku Klux Klan that the 1924 Democratic National Convention at Madison Square Garden in New York City is called the “Klanbake” convention. Republicans fought against slavery in the south while Democrats defended it, and while Democrats pushed for segregation and Jim Crow laws, Republicans supported the Civil Rights act of 1964. The Democratic Party’s history of racism is undeniable in the picture below, taken at the...
  • Joe 'You Ain't Black' Biden: Please watch 'Uncle Tom' Larry Elder touts documentary that looks at vitriol against independent-thinking African Americans

    June 19 is the premiere of "Uncle Tom," a documentary on which I am the executive producer. Through interviews with black conservatives, some well-known and some not, the film asks a simple question: Why are independent-thinking blacks, who believe in limited government and personal responsibility, denounced as "sellouts" and "coons" and "Uncle Toms" by fellow blacks? One can agree or disagree about whether, and to what degree, today's problems in the black community can be traced to slavery and Jim Crow. But blacks who do not connect the serious problems in black urban America to Jim Crow and slavery are...

    It is a fact that the Democratic Party has from its inception been committed to the subjugation of human beings they deemed as chattel or insignificant. The Democratic Party Platform in 1840, 1844 and 1848 held that: "All efforts by abolitionists … to interfere with questions of slavery … are calculated to lead to the most alarming and dangerous consequences and … have all inevitable tendency to diminish the happiness of the people and endanger the stability and permanency of the Union." (See: "Democrats and Republicans In Their Own Words.") In colloquial parlance Democrats were arguing that the owning slaves...

    CNN host Chris Cuomo recently complained about his job. "I don't like what I do," he said. It seems that Cuomo, out in public, gets some negative feedback: "I don't want some jackass, loser, fat-tire biker being able to pull over and get in my face and in my space and talk bulls--t to me. I don't want to hear it." Cuomo complained that as "a celebrity" he cannot "tell you to go to hell, to shut your mouth." Poor Cuomo; the stress of his reportedly $6 million a year gig must be unbearable. No doubt U.S. Surgeon General Jerome...

    Former President Obama's attorneys say they plan to file a cease-and-desist letter over a pro-Trump group's television ad in South Carolina that attacks former Vice President Joe Biden by using a portion of Obama's book Obama is also demanding that all South Carolina television stations immediately stop running the ad from the Committee to Defend the President, which is aimed at supporting President Trump's reelection bid. The ad uses excerpts from Obama's 1995 memoir, "Dreams from My Father," in an effort to get the attention of black voters in the state. "Joe Biden promised to help our community. It was...

    We didn't expect President Trump to use his annual State of the Union address to spread misleading smears about Governor Wolf. But then again, Trump will mislead the American people any way he can, in the hope that it will help his re-election campaign — and Pennsylvania is key to his victory. There's no doubt in our minds that we're getting under Trump's skin, . We are proving that no matter what he does to undermine and undo our hard-fought progress — we won't roll over. Our fight to invest in public schools and ensure our children have a bright...

    At least 20 people were hospitalized Saturday, including two in critical condition, after a gas explosion shattered parts of a shopping mall in the South Florida city of Plantation, authorities said. Firefighters were searching for other injured people but believe all have been taken for treatment, said Plantation Fire Department deputy chief Joel Gordon. News footage and social media video showed firefighters arriving at the mall. Windows were blown out of an LA Fitness. A section of the complex appeared to sustain significant damage, with shattered windows and scattered debris.

    A state employee complained that the wife of embattled Virginia Gov.
