    The Virginia Military Institute’s Board of Visitors has unanimously voted to remove the school’s Stonewall Jackson statue from campus. The move comes after Kaleb Tucker and other black alumni started a campaign for the statue’s removal, citing racism at the institute experienced by black cadets. The board concurred on forming a diversity office and diversity and inclusion panel, The Washington Post reported.Tucker co-created a petition five months ago which urges the school to “acknowledge racism” and remove the statue. It has received over 1,000 signatures, according to (RELATED: Virginia Military Institute Superintendent Resigns After School Faces Racism Allegations)“If something or someone is in place that does...

    — A Virginia city has officially renamed the cemetery where Confederate Gen. Stonewall Jackson is buried. The city council in Lexington voted unanimously Thursday to adopt a law changing the name of Stonewall Jackson Memorial Cemetery to Oak Grove Cemetery, news outlets reported. The Civil War general, who owned slaves and fought to defend the practice, was buried in the cemetery more than 150 years ago. Officials faced calls from community members in June to change the name and remove all other monuments and places honoring Confederate figures within city limits, as communities around the world faced similar demands to...
  • Eleven years after last medical records release, Biden’s health at issue as campaign stonewalls

    Democratic front-runner Joe Biden was speaking at a televised town hall Wednesday when the corner of his left eye appeared to fill with blood, bringing attention away from the issue of climate change at a time when his campaign is already batting back scrutiny about his age and health. The eye issue likely isn't serious and will go away on its own after a few days, but it came after reporters have been asking Biden about whether his age will get in the way of his pursuit of the White House and followed a string of verbal miscues. Biden is...
  • Gay Holocaust: It has already begun — in the very citadel of the West

    Gay Holocaust: It has already begun — in the very citadel of the West JUL 17, 2019 9:00 AM BY ALEXANDER MAISTROVOY On the fiftieth anniversary of Stonewall riots, an Israeli historian, Yuval Harari, gave an interview to the Guardian in which he warned that the 21th century could be the Gay Holocaust. Harari is known as the author of popular bestsellers and is a guru for progressives. In his opinion, the main threat to the LGBT community comes from countries where they, having obtained the desired freedom, have turned into scapegoats: in Eastern Europe, most of all, Poland, Hungary,...

    [Catholic Caucus] WATCH: Priest in rainbow colors celebrates ‘pride’ Mass outside Stonewall Inn’s gay bar NEW YORK July 5, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) – A Catholic priest wearing a rainbow stole celebrated a pro-homosexual “pride” Mass outside New York’s Stonewall Inn, a historic gay bar, in commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the riots against police that gave birth to the “gay rights” movement.  On the table that served as an altar, there was a bouquet of flowers that imitated the rainbow flag of the LGBTQ movement. On the fence that forms the perimeter of the park that has been designated a...

    A black transgender woman wanted to be heard, but the white men wanted to celebrate. The scene at New York City's Stonewall Inn on Saturday, as reported by multiple witnesses on social media, showed how long-simmering tensions between transgender women of color and white gay men have boiled over during the celebration of World Pride and the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall uprising.

    American Thinker ^ | 30 June 2019 | Peter Barry Chowka
    This weekend is the 50th anniversary of the “Stonewall Uprising.” The violent street demonstrations resulting from the NYC police crackdown on the gay-lesbian-transvestite underground Stonewall bar in Greenwich Village on June 27, 1969 for public behavior that was then illegal in 49 states is credited with kicking off the homosexual rights movement. The event is currently being celebrated in mainstream news accounts, nation- and world-wide commemorations, and corporate advertising that is treating Stonewall much like like Rosa Parks’s refusal to go to the back of the bus in Birmingham, Ala. In 1955.Seasoned journalist Celia Farber, however, is calling attention at...

    This month’s 50th anniversary of Stonewall, the Greenwich Village uprising that launched the modern LGBT movement, was always going to be complicated. What may seem like a straightforward chance to celebrate progress actually masks a fault line that has divided our movement since its start: whether our goal is equality or liberation, a fight for the right to be treated like everyone else or the freedom to be authentically ourselves. Do we seek belonging in the world as it is (including the military, marriage and parenting) or the chance to transform the world, by throwing off repressive norms, into a...

    When half a dozen police officers raided a Mafia-run gay bar on a hot New York night 50 years ago, little did they know their actions would spark a movement that reshaped the lives of generations to come. Mark didn't throw a brick that night. And he didn't confront a policeman. But he had something that was perhaps as potent as any projectile - he had chalk. It was handed to him with instructions by his friend Marty as chaos unfolded outside the Stonewall Inn, the police being pelted with coins and bottles. The homeless teenager set off up the...

    Fifty years after patrons at the Stonewall Inn refused to be silent and sparked a civil rights movement for gay Americans, Pride events are a familiar tradition in many states. Parades, teach-ins and panel discussions throughout June affirm the dignity of people who have been historically marginalized and continue to face discrimination. While religious leaders take part in LGBT Pride Month celebrations, a Catholic bishop’s tweet this week provoked contentious social media debates about whether faithful Catholics should attend such events, given the church’s opposition to same-sex marriage and teachings about homosexuality.

General Michael Flynn's reported conversations with the Russian ambassador and FBI records related to those conversations is insufficient.

    House Intelligence Committee chairman Devin Nunes has issued an angry demand to the FBI and Department of Justice to explain why they kept the committee in the dark over the reason Special Counsel Robert Mueller kicked a key supervising FBI agent off the Trump-Russia investigation. Stories in both the Washington Post and New York Times on Saturday reported that Peter Strzok, who played a key role in the original FBI investigation into the Trump-Russia matter, and then a key role in Mueller's investigation, and who earlier had played an equally critical role in the FBI's Hillary Clinton email investigation, was...

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- Seven months after a federal judge ordered the State Department to begin releasing monthly batches of the detailed daily schedules showing meetings by Hillary Clinton during her time as secretary of state, the government told The Associated Press it won't finish the job before Election Day. The department has so far released about half of the schedules. Its lawyers said in a phone conference with the AP's lawyers that the department now expects to release the last of the detailed schedules around Dec. 30, weeks before the next president is inaugurated. The AP's lawyers late Friday formally...

    President Barack Obama said in his weekly address today that he had set aside “more than 265 million acres of public lands and waters” as national parks and monuments, which is “more than any administration in history.” Among the national monuments he created, Obama said in his weekly address, was “Stonewall.” This monument commemorates riots that took place in 1969. Citing Yosemite and Yellowstone national parks, leading into his citation of Stonewall, Obama said: “As President, I’m proud to have built upon America’s tradition of conservation.” The president said in his June 24 proclamation [1] creating the “Stonewall National Monument:”...
