    .....“There is nothing more disgusting than rich people who do nothing to undermine the material position of their own class vaguely calling for peace and love,” Fergie wrote on Instagram on November 2. “It gives me actual bloodlust.”“We’re frightened to go out to restaurants, or cafés in town. It’s chilling,” the man in Great Barrington added. He tells me that the police aren’t much help—“they won’t come”—when it comes to Fergie and his followers, and that he’s considering moving towns. (The police declined to comment and directed me to the DA’s office who, through a representative, emailed to say that...

    Cincinnati Reds legend Johnny Bench apologized Sunday for an antisemitic comment he had made a day earlier during a team event. Bench was in attendance Saturday at a news conference to honor former Reds general manager Gabe Paul, who was Jewish, and former pitchers Danny Graves and Bronson Arroyo. The trio was being inducted into the Reds Hall of Fame. Paul, who died in 1998, was represented at the event by his daughter, Jennie Paul. Near the end of the news conference, Pete Rose recalled his first contract negotiation with Gabe Paul, saying: "When I got out of high school...
  • “It’s the ‘Cheers’ of doughnut shops”: What keeps them coming back to 72-year-old Red’s Donuts in Monterey

    What makes Red's Donuts, a 72-year-old Monterey institution, stand out among the thousands of independent California doughnut shops? And were they really the purveyors of Betty White’s favorite morning treat? I just had to find out. SNIP There’s a few reasons why Red’s is the place for doughnuts on the Central Coast. It’s old: Red’s started in 1950 on Alvarado Street, the main drag in downtown Monterey, when Hermann “Red” O’Donnell (the nickname came from his shock of auburn hair) bought it for three grand on a whim. It’s original: While a second location, which now houses the baking operation,...

    On this Independence Day 2021, I reflect on the America I love so much and how it looks very different from the one I knew as a child in the 80s and 90s. How, once upon a time, we celebrated our nationalism and patriotism, and today, there is a very vocal minority that resents the USA. I believe if they knew the realities behind China, they may rethink their position. As an American of Chinese ancestry and a community organizer on the ground, I felt an important need to discuss this topic. Perhaps one of the most bizarre news stories...

    We know that history holds many surprises. One doesn't expect to learn more about the secret history of of the Gulag than we already know from both Solzhenitsyn's "Gulag Acrcipelago" and Anne Applebaum's "Gulag: A history." This feat, however, is exactly what author Tim Tzouliadis has accomplished: the previously unknown story of the thousands of Americans who, during the Depression, sought employment and a better future in the "worker's paradise" built by the Bolsheviks. All kinds of Americans joined the exodus. Some of them were Communists or fellow-travelors but the majority were average Americans - skilled workers promised paid passage,...
  • To Save The Republic, Destroy The Media

    Town Hall ^ | Derek Hunter
    To produce some viruses for study, in the hope of eradicating them, scientists use monkey kidney cells. It’s the perfect environment for them to replicate; to grow. For the virus that is progressivism, the media is the monkey kidneys, and to eliminate the threat that this left-wing sibling of communism, socialism, and fascism poses to the world, that delivery device needs to be destroyed. The profession, or at least what it used to be and is supposed to be, is important to the country. People need to know what is happening in their world. But what we have now is...

    The "putting-to-sleep", the euthanasia of American Democracy, is proceeding right on schedule, the greedy Billionaire Oligarchs pulling the strings of the disinformation-media, the whorehouse politicians and the alienated, childless white rioters of BLM, have got everything in hand, if they lose temporarily, they've got another, more definitive plan in the wings to deal with The Upstart. It's time to release our chicken-chalkline hypnotic trance, to consider the far more momentous event, China's poisoning of the whole world. It goes back much further than China putting anti-freeze into cough syrup sold in Central America--"oh, well, it doesn't matter, they're not Han...
  • Cultural Marxism's Origins: How the Disciples of an Obscure Italian Linguist Subverted America

    You may have heard the terms “Cultural Marxism,” “Critical Theory” or “Frankfurt School” bandied about. And while you might have an intuitive approximation of what these terms mean for America in the 21st century, there’s a good chance that you don’t know much about the deep theory, where the ideology comes from and what it has planned for America – and the world. The underlying theory here is a variant of Marxism, pioneered by early-20th-century Italian Marxist politician and linguist Antonio Gramsci. Gramscian Marxism is a radical departure from Classical Marxism. One does not need to endorse the Classical Marxism...

    First, let me set the stage for new readers. No-one is more cynical of DC operations and manipulations than me. I do not sell nor promote ‘hope porn’, and I am not confident that anything is close to being revealed. Indeed, given the scale and scope of what took place in the last eight years, yes eight years; I have expressed doubts that anyone in government would ever actually expose it. That said, in addition to my own cynicism I have been deep in this “spygate” or “Russiagate” rabbit hole; factually and physically inside the DC network; long enough to...

    NEW YORK -- Tom Seaver transformed a franchise and captivated a city, setting enduring standards as he whipped his powerful right arm overhead for the Miracle Mets and dirtied his right knee atop major league mounds for two decades. A consummate pro and pitching icon, he finished fulfilled after a career remembered with awe long after his final strikeout. "It is the last beautiful flower in the perfect bouquet," Seaver said on the afternoon he was inducted into baseball's Hall of Fame. Seaver, the galvanizing force who steered the New York Mets from the National League cellar to a stunning...

    The longtime play-by-play man for the Cincinnati Reds exited the broadcast booth Wednesday and begged for forgiveness after video showed him using a homophobic slur on a hot mic earlier in the day. “One of the f-g capitals of the world,” Thom Brennaman said on the Fox Sports Ohio TV broadcast during the first game of a scheduled doubleheader between the Reds and Royals in Kansas City. A few seconds passed before Brennaman, seemingly unaware his comment was made on-air, recited a promo for the network’s pregame show. The 56-year-old later exited the second game after videos of the incident...

    Bob Avakian, chairman of the Revolutionary Communist Party USA (RCPUSA), has endorsed Joe Biden for president.  Mr. Avakian, who has led the party since 1979, says he doesn’t particularly like Mr. Biden, but that electing him is necessary for “the overthrow of this system, as the fundamental solution to the continuing horrors this system causes for the masses of humanity.”That “system” is our self-governing republic with its constitutionally-guaranteed rule of law, property rights, the freedoms of religion, speech, press and assembly, and free market economics. All of this has produced the freest, most prosperous and most generous nation in history. It’s...

    he power of the coronavirus pandemic as a potential global “game changer” may be on full display in the South China Sea. China is stepping up its operations in the international waterway while the U.S. Defense department grapples with over 1,500 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in its ranks. The pandemic began in Wuhan, China and peaked in the Communist country in February. China’s numbers may reek of skepticism but by all accounts, they have seen the worst of the disease. Barring any 2nd wave of COVID-19, the country is slowly returning to normal with their military unscathed and at full...

    “Why haven’t we been told this information?” A coach at a clinic asked me this near the end of a presentation I gave about my eating disorder, where I told my recovery story and offered strategies for what coaches can do to support their athletes. Disordered eating stories amongst runners seem to have been shared mostly through murmurs between coaches and private conversations between athletes who were feeling alone and struggling in silence. As a cross-country coach for Grandville High School in Michigan—four years assistant, two years head coach—I’ve noticed that eating disorders in sport is not a regular or...

    "Our civil servants have failed us," he said in a statement.______ Robert Redford may be done acting, but he’s not riding off into the sunset anytime soon. The actor, filmmaker, and Sundance Film Festival founder published “A Brief Statement About Big Things” on the Sundance Institute’s website yesterday, writing that he feels “out of place in the country I was born into” for the first time he can remember and that he has “watched with sadness as our civil servants have failed us.” The overtly political speech was published the same day that Brett Kavanaugh’s ascension to the Supreme Court...

    Half a century after they simmered with youthful sexuality in "Barefoot in the Park", screen legends Jane Fonda and Robert Redford have teamed up again in a tale of love and sex in later life. "He's a great kisser so it was fun to kiss him in my 20s and it was fun to kiss him against at almost 80," Fonda said Friday of her famously handsome co-star in "Our Souls at Night." The Netflix production had its premiere Friday at the Venice film festival, where the veteran stars were to be presented later with Golden Lions in recognition of...

    Today June 3rd 2017, is what would've been Josephine Baker's 111th birthday. Google commemorated her life with a nice google doodle. As it often is whenever depicting famous 20th century celebrities, Google always has to choose individuals celebrated by leftists many with a track record filled with scandal usually one involving communism. While one can find fault with any celebrity patriot or pinhead, Google always seems to aim for those who are "victims" of McCarthyism, the catch term used by reds and their supporters to smear those exposing communist activities here and abroad Its no surprise that Google chooses another...
