    Evanston, Illinois, is like a lot of American cities. The city just north of Chicago appears picturesque, updated and grand on one side -- but not far away, one can see the signs of economic and racial segregation, despite the city's proud, diverse and liberal reputation. What sets Evanston apart from other cities, however, is its groundbreaking plan to address the impact of that segregation and Black disenfranchisement: reparations. The impetus for the city's reparations resolution, first passed in 2019 and spearheaded by 5th Ward Alderman Robin Rue Simmons, is rooted partially in Rue Simmons' experience growing up Black in...

    ‘Great Reset’ without God is nothing but a hoax: Polish archbishopKrakow Archbishop Marek Jędraszewski quoted an historian in a homily who said globalists' ideas are opposed to Christianity.KRAKOW, Poland, February 26, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) — The Metropolitan Archbishop of Kraków preached against the “Great Reset” envisioned by globalists, saying there is no renewal without Christ.“It is in Christ that we must achieve 'a great reset,’ a great renewal, and a reordering of our lives,” said Archbishop Marek Jędraszewski in Kraków’s Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church on Wednesday. Jędraszewski (pronounced yen-dra-SHEF-ski) is the third successor of the late Cardinal Karol Wojtyła...
  • 'This Is Wrong': Progressives Condemn Joe Biden's Refusal to Cancel $50K in Student Debt

    Progressives denounced President Joe Biden's refusal to support an effort to cancel $50,000 in student loan debts for individuals on Wednesday. Biden said that he "will not make that happen" when confronted with a demand to back the effort during Tuesday's CNN town hall event, reasoning that he is in favor of some forgiveness for those who went to public schools but does not support eliminating debt for "people who have gone to Harvard and Yale." **SNIP** Schumer and Warren reintroduced a Senate resolution that urges Biden to back the plan to cancel $50,000 of debt on February 4, after...

    California's various teachers unions are coming under increased scrutiny over their reluctance to return to in-person learning, especially in the wake of the state legislature's apprehension towards Gov. Gavin Newsom's school reopening plan. The state's most powerful teachers union - the California Teachers Association, which has more than 300,000 members and is affiliated with the even more powerful National Education Association - has taken the firm stance that teachers must be vaccinated before in-person learning resumes. That position conflicts with CDC guidance that teachers do not need to be vaccinated for in-person learning to be made safe. An SFGATE analysis...

    ST. JOHN’S, N.L. - When Saskatchewan nearly went bankrupt in the 1990s, there was a joke told repeatedly in the province, according to economist Jason Childs: “What do you get your kids for graduation? Luggage.” The financial problems of the prairie province in the early 1990s are playing out today in Newfoundland and Labrador, but experts say the issue is not getting enough attention during the election campaign, which is almost halfway done. Ottawa eventually bailed out Saskatchewan — after that province dropped an austerity budget that included rural hospital closures and service cuts, leading to some small towns emptying...

    A BOY who ran a neo-Nazi cell from his gran's Cornish cottage when he was just 13 has today become the UK's youngest convicted terrorist. The teen gathered terrorist material online and spouted vile racist, homophobic and anti-Semitic views in chatrooms. He spoke about "gassing" Jewish people, hanging homosexuals and wanting to "shoot up their parades" in chilling exchanges. The warped teen, now 16, also ran the UK branch of the extremist Feuerkrieg Division (FKD) during the summer of 2019. The notorious neo-Nazi group idolises terrorists such as Anders Breivick, who slaughtered 77 people in Norway. While running the FKD,...

    Washington D.C., Jan 21, 2021 / 05:00 am MT (CNA).- House Speaker Nancy Pelosi accused pro-lifers of putting their opposition to abortion over the tenets of democracy in a recent appearance on former Sen. Hillary Clinton’s podcast. “I think that Donald Trump is president because of the issue of a woman’s right to choose,” Pelosi said on the Jan. 18 episode of “You and Me Both with Hillary Clinton,” blaming pro-life voters for boosting Trump into office. “When you take the greed of those who want their tax cuts, that’s probably a small number [of voters], but nonetheless a number,”...

    Jan. 7, 2021 … a day that will live in infamy … Last week, I had occasion to visit the USS Arizona Memorial at Pearl Harbor in Honolulu, Hawaii. The memorial marks the resting place of 1,102 of the 1,177 sailors and Marines killed on the battleship on Dec. 7, 1941. As one might imagine, it is a somber experience that engenders a great deal of thought regarding the lives lost on the ship, as well as all of the military personnel who have made the ultimate sacrifice to secure and preserve our liberties throughout our nation's history. As I...

In this post I offer 12 things we can be assured of will happen. I asked this same question a week ago. Well this past weekend the persecution, from the Democrat Socialists and their elitists friends, has already begun. So what are we, as freedom loving Americans, planning on doing about it? My fighting side wants us to take up arms and fight till the death to stop that which we all fear is...

    People called globalists, the Global Elite, the Shadow Government, and various other names want to create and run a New World Order. A New World Order implies the demise of the current world order. The slogan of many globalists (including the Biden Administration, the UN, and Pope Francis) is “Build Back Better,” but to build back, the current world order must be destroyed first. To Build Back Better implies a better world, but globalists are really trying to gain total control of everyone on earth (our religious system, our political system, our economic system; what we buy, what we sell,...

    Looking back at 2020, it’s undeniable that this has been one of the strangest years in American history – from January’s sham presidential impeachment, to the coronavirus pandemic and economy-destroying national lockdown, to widespread hysterical demands to “defund the police” while Marxist mobs burned and looted American cities, to Big Tech scandalously suppressing journalism it doesn’t like, to Big Media openly siding with the senile and corrupt Joe Biden while portraying President Donald Trump as a mentally ill, racist would-be dictator, to November’s breathtakingly rigged election – likely the most crooked and corrupt in our history. In between these wall-to-wall...

    In Washington’s months-long political slugfest over who should get aid to counter the financial damage from the COVID-19 pandemic, there was at least one clear loser: local government. In the midst of cutbacks in workforce and emergency services and growing poverty, U.S. cities, especially the smaller ones, are hoping the next round of stimulus includes them and that President-elect Joe Biden advocates for them when he takes office on Jan. 20. The latest coronavirus bill for $892 billion in aid - painstakingly negotiated over months and begrudgingly signed into law last week by President Donald Trump - left a bad...

    Fasten your seatbelts for the new year, New York: With Democrats now boasting veto-proof supermajorities in both the Assembly and the state Senate, and several Democratic socialists joining the ranks, the left is emboldened — and that spells big trouble. “We recognize the mandate we’ve been given by voters,” Senate Majority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins warned in November. “We will assert ourselves accordingly.” Yikes! ... Progressives feel no need to justify tax hikes, of course: Their enduring goal is to redistribute wealth, even if it makes everyone equally poor. (Recall Mayor Bill de Blasio’s assurance that the city has “plenty of...

    ATLANTA - In the first week of early voting for Georgia’s Senate runoff election, Casie Yoder parked at a polling location in Cobb County and loaded miniature hand sanitizer bottles, knitted hats, hand warmers and face masks into a collapsible wagon cart.Her goal: to help voters stay in line in frigid temperatures and cast their ballots in a pair of high-stakes runoff contests that will determine which political party controls the Senate next year. The runoffs will also test whether Democrats can again pull together the diverse coalition that propelled President-elect Joe Biden to victory in Georgia in November and...

    SAN JOSE DE GUANIPA, Venezuela (Reuters) - Francisco Belisario, a Venezuelan mayor, retired general and member of the ruling Socialist party, had enough. His loudest local critic had accused him of bungling the response to the coronavirus outbreak and other big problems. In August, he wrote a state prosecutor and requested an “exhaustive investigation” of his nemesis, Giovanni Urbaneja, a former lawmaker who had become a gadfly to the mayor and other Socialist officeholders. Urbaneja, Belisario wrote in a letter reviewed by Reuters, was conducting a “ferocious smear campaign” on Facebook and elsewhere. Urbaneja not only defamed him and President...

    Amid the allegations of fraud in the 2020 election, the State of Texas is leading the way in upholding the law to promote a fair contest. This past Friday, three Democratic Party operatives were indicted by a Grand Jury in Harris County for election related felonies and misdemeanors in two separate districts. This announcement comes one month after Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton charged a Limestone County social worker with 134 counts of Election Fraud. A DNC political consultant, Damien Jones, was indicted for Coercion of a Public Servant and False Caller Identification Information Display. Jones is alleged to have...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., took to social media Friday night for a “Cooking Q&A” to answer questions and update her followers on what is happening with COVID-19 relief – a practice she has exercised since entering office in 2018. Ocasio-Cortez has used the sessions with her followers, as a time to vent and speak to her young base in a way officials in political office have never done in the past – something that members from both parties have been critical of. But the New York Democrat, often deemed a socialist by her critics, used the opportunity to voice her...

    WASHINGTON - Progressive lawmakers in the "Squad" want to see President-Elect Joe Biden use executive actions to cancel student loan debt, raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour for federal contractors, declare climate change a national emergency and more. Biden will likely have a tough time passing major legislation, even if Democrats win next month's Georgia runoffs and narrowly retake the Senate, so liberals are urging him to make use of the power of the office without involving Congress. "We've all seen what it’s like trying to get meaningful legislation past Republicans in the Senate," Rep. Ilhan Omar told...

    Former President Barack Obama called on the Democratic National Committee to give a bigger platform to progressives as they continue to butt heads with the party's centrist members. "One thing I will say about the Democratic Party is that promoting young people is really important. We stick so long with the same old folks and don't make room for new voices," Obama said in an interview with Peter Hamby on Snapchat's Good Luck America. Obama also acknowledge the party's controversial decision to allot Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez only 60 seconds at this summer's national convention, while handing out significantly more television...
