    A crime-plagued California city may be one step closer to reversing its misfortunes after taking drastic action against its progressive mayor. Sheng Thao will face a historic recall election in November amid anger over her failure to get a grip on the situation in Oakland. The progressive Democrat lawmaker is the first mayor in the city's history to be up for recall, after a campaign to oust her gained more than 40,000 signatures.
  • Pa.’s Sen. Fetterman fights with the left, and not just about Israel

    PennLive ^ | 30 May A.D. 2024 | Aliya Schneider,
    U.S. Sen. John Fetterman’s brashness toward progressives has expanded beyond the topic of Israel. Fetterman was the topic of a lengthy feature article published by the New York Times on Saturday that highlighted how the senator, who had been on thin ice with progressives for his staunch and unconditional support for Israel in its war with Hamas, has shown that his willingness to make waves within his own party doesn’t stop at the Middle East. Fetterman was seen mocking environmentalist Stevie O’Hanlon, who was trying to speak to him about a Chester County pipeline, in a video that circulated online...

    A report recently released by US News & World Report has revealed that Washington and Oregon are among the most dangerous states in the nation. The report, which relied on the latest data from the Federal Bureau of Investigations for corrections outcomes and public safety, put Oregon, the Beaver State, in 46th place while its neighbor to the north came in 39th. According to the data, Oregon had an incarceration rate of 295 per 100,000 residents, and a juvenile incarceration rate of 121 per 100,000 juveniles. The violent crime rate sat at 342 per 100,000 residents, slightly lower than the...

    The recent wave of violent protests and arrests at elite universities like Yale and Columbia have only confirmed for Scott Katz that he made the right decision to attend Elon University. The North Carolina college, where he is currently wrapping up his sophomore year, is a long way from his hometown of Lafayette Hill, the predominantly liberal Philadelphia suburb where the average home costs $610,000. Katz, who is Jewish, says the antisemitism that’s increasingly visible at colleges nationwide—especially in the Ivy League, and other elite institutions like Stanford and Berkeley—hasn’t even touched his campus. “I haven’t been affected by it...
  • Bill Maher Warns Canada Is A ‘Cautionary Tale’ For U.S.: ‘We’re Diving Off A Cliff’

    Comedian Bill Maher said over the weekend that if Americans wanted to see what would happen to the United States if it continued down the path to “extreme wokeness,” they should look no further than their neighbors to the north. Maher argued — during Friday’s broadcast of “Real Time” on HBO — that Canada should serve as a “cautionary tale” for Americans who wanted the progressive utopian ideal and thought that they could see it just across the border. Maher began by saying that he agreed with those who said American liberals should learn from progressive countries that were getting...

    Tennessee is divided over reparations, with a black Memphis pastor leading the charge against a bill that would prohibit the funding of a proposed reparations study in the state. Rev. Earle Fisher, the senior pastor of Abyssinian Baptist Church, has garnered more than 1,100 signatures for his petition against the “reprehensible legislation” introduced to the state legislature to prohibit local governments from “engaging in the vital work of studying or disbursing reparations.” The commissioners of Shelby County — which includes Memphis — voted last year to launch a “feasibility study to examine reparations for the descendants of slaves,” the Daily...

    There are a lot of people out there who think I have a lost my marbles for coming to the conclusion that a large percentage of books written prior to the 1900s are the only books you can trust when it comes to American History. What people fail to understand, is that the 1619 Project is actually not new. Sure, it's relatively "new" to use racial issues as the focal point, but manipulating U.S. history to advance progressivism goes back to the Progressive Era itself. In his book "American inquisitors; a commentary on Dayton and Chicago", Walter Lippmann wrote the...

    The new rage in the "city that never sleeps," seems to be "sucker punching" women on the streets of New York City. A woman named Halley McGookin posted a video on TikTok after she was attacked. It was one of a dozen similar videos of assaults on women near Union Square in recent days. "I was literally just walking, and a man came up and punched me in the face," she said. "Oh my God, it hurts so bad." A day later, Dulche Pichardo was walking on the sidewalk of Grand Avenue near Dean Street when a stranger delivered a...

    Top staffers for Democrat John Fetterman are leaving his office for more progressive jobs as the Pennsylvania senator moves more to the center on key issues. The everyman Democrat, who loves Carhartt hoodies and dawning a disheveled goatee, has staunchly supported Israel's war on Hamas and denounced calls for a ceasefire. He's also expressed support for increased U.S. border security, another position that puts him at odds with his party. The freshman Democrat was elected after securing support from some of the most liberal members of Congress in 2022. The towering 6 foot 8 inch senator, previously supported Democrat Socialist...
  • Vietnamese-American lawmaker silenced for telling the truth about traitor Tom Hayden

    Speaking truth to power isn't allowed in Sacramento A California lawmaker who fled Communist Vietnam as a child decided to tell the truth about the late former state senator Tom Hayden and his treasonable behavior during the Vietnam War. Hayden died Oct. 23 at 76 after a lifetime of seditious, anti-American behavior, including collaborating with America’s enemies during wartime. California state senator Janet Nguyen’s (R-Garden Grove) attempt to speak truth to power was cut short by Hayden’s allies in the Democrat-dominated California legislature who objected to her setting the record straight about Hayden.

    “Those who organized the disaster will take advantage of the inevitable discontent arising from efforts to overcome it, for if there is one thing that they are skilled in, it is demagoguery.” —Theodore Dalrymple. Can you feel it? The tension rising to the red-line? It runs clear through all of Western Civ. We are ruled by governments of fiends. But now, the sun rides higher in the sky.

    On Thursday, Atlanta authorities arrested a male suspect on arson charges in connection to an attack that occurred in protest of the future site of the Atlanta Public Safety Training Center, dubbed "Cop City" by left wing agitators. John Robert Mazurek, 30, has been charged with first-degree arson. He is accused of being involved in the arson of a police special operations center that occurred in July 2023, according to Atlanta News First. Police said that officers had been occupying the center when the arson occurred. According to authorities, eight police motorcycles were set on fire in the parking deck...
  • Progressives are trying to pester liberal Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor, 69, into RETIRING over fears she could die on the job like Ruth Bader-Ginsburg while conservative president is in office

    Liberal Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor is under pressure from fellow liberals to retire amid growing fears she might enable a Republican president to appoint a conservative successor. CNN commentator Josh Barrow became the latest to demand the 69-year-old step down lest she follow in the footsteps liberal Ruth Bader Ginsburg who died while serving at 87 in 2020. That death allowed then-president Donald Trump to cement the court's conservative majority with the appointment of Amy Coney Barrett, and some liberals are determined it will not happen again. 'I'm not saying I think Justice Sotomayor is on death's door,' Barrow...

  • C.S.Lewis' "That Hideous Strength" Matches Orwell's "1984" As A Prognosticator Of The Perils Of Progressivism

    Many commentators have pointed out - correctly - that current “progressive” trends are reminiscent of George Orwell’s classic novel, “1984.” The parallels include manipulation of the English language, rewriting of history, suppression of dissent, and the omnipresence of administrative central government.In addition to which, there are the lightning-swift changes in the party line: For example, behavior traditionally deemed morally wrong or perverted suddenly becomes a theme for celebration. You’re a bigot if you don’t change instantly!Orwell wasn’t the only mid-20th century British writer to forecast those trends. Another was C.S. Lewis—particularly in his brilliant dystopia “That Hideous Strength.”Lewis is best...

    In a rare move, Democrat Sen. John Fetterman (D-PA) is receiving praise from Republicans after criticizing his own party’s stance on several issues. Fetterman has slammed the Democratic Party’s progressive “Squad” who refuse to condemn the Hamas terrorist attacks on Israel. He questioned why the United States hasn’t yet destroyed Hamas, adding that every terrorist killed is "one more step" toward peace. Advertisement The Democrat has stood by his pro-Israel stance, angering members of his party who believe more should be done to help Gaza despite Hamas raping and heinously killing innocent Israelis. “I have a 12-year-old daughter,” Fetterman said....

    A progressive activist is warning voters against reelecting President Joe Biden, whom she describes as a "dictator" and being "worse than Trump." "Biden is already a dictator, folks. Fascism is already here under Biden," Bree Newsome said in a Wednesday post on X (formerly Twitter). "Please pay attention to how popular will is being completely ignored because Biden doesn't give af what the public thinks if he can maintain his grip on power." Newsome, who made national headlines for removing the Confederate flag from the South Carolina Statehouse grounds in 2015, has staunchly opposed a second Biden term since the...

    A mom brought her six-year-old daughter into the office with a fever and a sore throat. I asked the little girl to open her mouth and say “Ah.” She shook her head and clenched her mouth shut. “Mom, it looks like I’m going to need your help here," I said. "Could you please ask your daughter to open her mouth and say ‘Ah’?” Mom arched her eyebrows and replied, “Her body, her choice.” Wow. This mom was invoking the “My body, my choice” slogan of abortion-rights activists to defend her 6-year-old daughter's refusal to let me, the doctor, look at...
