    Nigeria witnessed scenes of violence and chaos as protests calling for an end to police brutality continued overnight and into Wednesday, despite a 24-hour curfew and multiple eyewitness reports of soldiers opening fire on protesters. Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu said Wednesday that one person had died at a hospital in Lagos, the country's financial capital, after a shooting in the upmarket suburb of Lekki on Tuesday, but did not confirm whether the victim was a protester. "This is an isolated case. We are still investigating if he was a protester," he said on Twitter. Earlier he said 30 people...

    This time last year, shoppers on Chicagos Magnificent Mile were waiting for Louis Vuitton to debut its whimsical holiday window decorations. Now those same windows are hidden behind a wall of wood panels painted bright orange. While still open for shoppers, stores like Gucci and Nordstrom are also boarded up after looters targeted the city's famed retail district in the spring and summer, when protests gripped more than 100 U.S. cities. As security experts warn that the U.S. presidential election could spark renewed civil unrest, those stores remain clad in plywood as retailers seek to keep property and employees safe...

  • Hmm, Why Did Gretchen Whitmer Display a Sign That's Viewed as a Call to Assassinate Trump?

    Source: Twitter/ScreenshotGov. Gretchen Whitmer (D-MI) sure is hypocritical, even for a politician. Just weeks after a deadly ricen poisoning was mailed to President Trump, Whitmer prominently displayed an "8645" sign in the background of the camera during an interview on NBC's "Meet the Press." When the term "86" is applied to a person it often carries the meaning of killing the individual. The left is violent and murderous enough without further stoking by the governor.Antifa, ginned up by Democrats, routinely attacks cops and Trump supporters, killing one recently in Portland. Joe Biden and Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) talk about...

    Less than three weeks out from the Nov. 3 presidential election, during an interview with the Cap Times, U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren touted the importance of Democratic candidate Joe Biden winning Wisconsin and the White House in a high-stakes election where "lives are on the line." The Massachusetts Democrat played up the stakes in this battleground state in Democrats' effort to oust President Donald Trump, describing it to attendees at a Madison drive-in get-out-the-vote event Saturday as one that lies "at the intersection" of this election. Slamming Republicans for trying to steal a Supreme Court seat ahead of the election...

    Riot police in Bangkok used water cannon and charged crowds to disperse thousands of protesters in the Thai capital, a day after the government officially banned street rallies demanding the resignation of Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha, a new constitution and reform of the country's monarchy. Mostly students defied a government ban on gatherings in the capital on Friday imposed a day earlier after protesters halted and jeered a motorcade transporting King Maha Vajiralongkorn and Queen Suthida. It was an unprecedented display of displeasure for the royal couple in a country where people are taught to revere the monarchy and where...

    Around 40% of college students said they will likely or certainly protest if President Donald Trump wins the election, according to an Axios poll released Friday. Exactly 22% of students surveyed said they are likely to protest and 17% said they will certainly protest should Trump win the 2020 election, the College Reaction/Axios survey found. More students, 30%, said they would not protest if Trump won and 31% said they are not likely to protest a Trump victory. The dissatisfaction with the status quo is also reflected by the number of students who are willing to protest Trump reelection with...

    The lead writer of The New York Times’ anti-American “1619 Project” suffered a meltdown last week when a colleague at her paper offered fair criticism of its revisionist and inaccurate account of history.On Oct. 9, New York Times columnist Bret Stephens published a more than 3,000-word essay outlining the project’s blunders that have led the academics with the National Association of Scholars (NAS) to call on the Pulitzer Prize Board to revoke its award to the project’s chief essayist, Nikole Hannah-Jones.“Journalists are, most often, in the business of writing the first rough draft of history, not trying to have...

    Yesterday, the Minnesota Senates Transportation and Public Safety Committee released its report on this summers riots in Minneapolis. The Star Tribune report on this was headlined: Minnesota Senate GOP report blames Gov. Tim Walz, Mayor Jacob Frey for slow riot response. The sub-header read: Democratic leaders reject findings, call document fodder for election, which is curious, because previously both Governor Walz and Mayor Frey had said that the other was to blame.

Despite the ban on religious gatherings, the worshipers came together to honor their god, LeBron James, in a spontaneous outpouring of love and praise. Worshipers in this religion, rather than singing songs or saying prayers, topple cars and throw things at the police.

    Sean Lennon just cant imagine why protesters would try to take Abraham Lincoln down. The son of John Lennon and Yoko Ono got on Twitter Monday to ask his 307,000 followers: Can someone explain why it appears a Lincoln statue was toppled in Portland? Asking for a friend. The 45-year-old musician was responding to Sunday nights protests in the Oregon city billed as an Indigenous Peoples Day of Rage over the Christopher Columbus holiday, in which a crowd toppled statues of Presidents Abraham Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelt. Lennon then appeared to mock the protesters by sarcastically suggesting that...

    The riots of 2020 are the battlefront of a movement hatched from an alternative history built upon an abstruse foundation of systemic racism and white privilege. In early summer, they created an apocalyptic spectacle of 23 American cities in flames, burned-out cars, shattered storefronts, unchecked looting, and occupied neighborhoods. Then events then took a curious turn. According to the Bridging the Divide Initiative, a Princeton think tank that conducts U.S. protest modeling with a wink and nod to the left, there was a free fall in the number of BLM-associated demonstrations and uprisings from a late-May peak to an October...

    The intersection in south Minneapolis where George Floyd died in police custody on May 25 has become a quasi-religious shrine. It is a shrine not just to Floyd, who is honored here as if he were a saint or a martyr, but to the political power of the Black Lives Matter movement and the ascendency of the radical left in this city. The intersection and the neighborhood around it have been occupied for months now. To get to the memorialor George Square, as its now calledyou must approach on foot.

    Even while it expands its economic and military reach abroad, China is stealthily funding and organizing riots and civil unrest in America. There is growing comprehension of the extent of China's attempts to undermine America and establish itself as the world's dominant economic and political power. Globally, China's Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), begun in 2013, has spread across all continents, enrolling at least 138 countries to date. The BRI reach is vast, and, although it lacks transparency, a common estimate is that it incorporates 38 countries in sub-Saharan Africa, 25 East Asia and Pacific countries, 17 nations in the...

The Patriot Muster protester maced the security guard, who then pulled out his handgun and shot him dead. This is what we hear from the mainstream media. But the reality is that the patriot who was shot dead was reportedly trying to defend himself with bear spray when confronted by two suspects at gunpoint. The man who was shot dead was reportedly...
