    PEORIA, Illinois — House Speaker Mike Johnson intensified his defense of Donald Trump before headlining a party fundraiser in Illinois on Saturday, as even this deep blue state’s Republicans seized on a Manhattan jury’s guilty verdict as a rallying cry for the former president. “Terrible,” Frank Hernandez, a retiree from Caterpillar, said of the verdict while waiting for Johnson to speak at the dinner. “The prosecutors, the judge, Biden — they were all in cahoots.” **SNIP** And after an army of online donors poured a staggering $53 million into Trump’s presidential campaign, Johnson said it wasn’t just Trump raising money...

    The front door of an apartment building in Berlin was marked with the Star of David this week amid increasing tension across Europe in the wake of the Hamas terror attacks on Israel. Harkening back to the dark days of the 1930s when the Nazis would brand Jewish businesses with the Star of David, a young woman of Jewish heritage was horrified to find that her home in the Prenzlauer Berg area of the German capitol had been branded with the same symbol this week.

    In a fiery Fourth of July Facebook post, Utah’s Black Lives Matter Chapter declared the American flag "a symbol of hatred." "When we Black Americans see this flag we know the person flying it is not safe to be around," the post reads. "When we see this flag we know the person flying it is a racist. When we see this flag we know that the person flying it lives in a different America than we do. When we see this flag, we question your intelligence. We know to avoid you. It is a symbol of hatred."

  • Donald Trump says the Confederate flag is a proud symbol of US south

    US President Donald Trump declined to say the Confederate flag was an offensive symbol in an interview broadcast on Sunday, saying it is a source of pride for people who love the South. The Republican president was asked on Fox News Sunday if the flag, a symbol of US slavery and white supremacy for many Americans, was offensive. “It depends on who you’re talking about, when you’re talking about,” Trump responded. “When people proudly had their Confederate flags they’re not talking about racism. They love their flag, it represents the South. They like the South … I say it’s freedom...
  • Le Pen Says as French President She Would Ban All Religious Symbols, Including Kippot

    Marine Le Pen, the leader of France’s far-right National Front Party, vowed that if she is elected the country’s president she would ban all public displays of religious symbols and clothing, including kippot. Le Pen made the statement during an interview on Sunday with France’s BFM-TV. She is expected to seek the country’s presidency in 2017. She heads the third-largest party in France. Le Pen is seeking to broaden an existing law, called the headscarf ban, that does not allow conspicuous displays of religious symbols in public schools to include all public areas. She called the ban a struggle against...

    Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton threw up a hand symbol after Sen. Elizabeth Warren chanted her name to rally Democratic voters in Ohio today. “Here’s what it boils down to,” Warren said. “Hillary has brains, she has guts, she has thick skin and steady hands, but most of all, she has a good heart and that’s what America needs, and that’s why I’m with her. Clinton stood behind a teleprompter and applauded Warren’s speech while smiling and nodding in approval. As the crowd cheered, Warren shouted, “Are you with her? Are you with her?” before punching the sky and...

    Head of the Scottish Catholic church, Cardinal Keith O'Brien, says symbol shows you 'live by Christ's standards in daily life' Britain's most senior Catholic cleric has called on Christians to wear a cross every day as "a symbol of their beliefs" and to combat the marginalisation of religion in modern society. The plea by Cardinal Keith O'Brien, head of the Catholic church in Scotland, to be made in his Easter sermon, comes as the Anglican archbishop of Canterbury, Dr Rowan Williams, appealed for more people to attend church this Sunday – even if they are "a bit vague" about religion....

    ( – Should Christians be upset if the packaging of their “hot cross buns” traditionally eaten at Easter carries the Islamic halal food certification symbol? This question has triggered an animated debate in South Africa in the run-up to Easter, both online and in the media. Protests by some Christians prompted the retailer to agree to offer two packaging options. One will carry the halal symbol and be labeled “spiced buns” while the other will omit the symbol and be labeled “hot cross buns,” according to a statement from the Woolworths supermarket chain. The statement, sent to South African media...

    The high winds that have been wreaking havoc around the D.C. region this weekend have toppled a national symbol. The nation's Christmas Tree, a live evergreen which has stood on the Ellipse since 1978, was toppled by gusting winds on Saturday. The 42-foot tall Colorado blue spruce has been lit through five different presidencies in its time on the Ellipse. The tree was specially selected by National Park Service horticulturalists, who, searching the country for the healthiest tree with the right proportions, discovered this one in York, Pennsylvania. Now the tree is laying on its side behind the White House.
  • Supporters of 'RoboCop' Statue in Detroit Raise More Than $50K

    02/17/2011 9:42:21 AM PST · by winstonwolf33 · 29 replies ^ | February 17, 2011 | Staff
    Despite the Detroit mayor's apparent disinterest in erecting a "RoboCop" statue, supporters of the idea have exceeded their fundraising goal of $50,000 -- hoping their plans to honor the legendary cyborg will become a reality. The story of "RoboCop," a hero officer killed in a shootout and brought back to life as a half-mechanized crime fighter in Detroit, is a 1987 cult classic. The push to construct a statue honoring the superhero began when Detroit Mayor Dave Bing took to the Internet to solicit ideas for the city's revival. Someone then posted the idea on Twitter, but Bing didn't seem...

    The Nazi swastika is apparently not considered illegal in the Lithuanian city of Klaipeda, despite former assumptions that the symbol was not to be displayed nationwide, a common legislative ruling in Eastern Europe. A local court has ruled the sign is a centuries-old symbol that depicts the sun. The judge in the case, which lasted three months, justified his ruling by adding that the symbol is found on numerous historic artifacts.

    When the remains of hundreds of colonial-era Africans were uncovered during a building excavation in Lower Manhattan in 1991, one coffin in particular stood out. Nailed into its wooden lid were iron tacks, 51 of which formed an enigmatic, heart-shaped design. The pattern was soon identified as the sankofa — a symbol printed on funereal garments in West Africa — and it captured the imagination of scholars, preservationists and designers. Ultimately, it was embraced by many African-Americans as a remarkable example of the survival of African customs in the face of violent subjugation in early America. The sankofa was widely...

    What with the Left's obsession with "tea-bagger" references and calling Sarah Palin a "MILF" or "TWILF," perhaps it is time for the DNC to dump the Donkey symbol and go with this symbol. They giggle uncontrollably when someone says something that they consider to be dirty. Beyond swear words and sexual innuendo, their vocabularies are very, very limited. They live in their own little world where they and only they are smart while at the same time worshiping MTV and mindless pop culture. They view everyone who does not live in their little world to be losers and worse. Beavis...

    At least 20 American flags with the stars removed from the blue field and President Barack Obama's face inserted are still available on numerous eBay auctions – but, according to a state code, the listings may violate the law. WND found three auctions for dozens of defaced flags on the auction site – all located in the state of Washington and within one hour of one another: Castle Rock, Vancouver and Longview. The listings were posted by ucandoit45, mekaitlyn-2008 and jaysterd. The U.S. flag code does not specify penalties for desecration or misuse of the United States flag, but each...

    A seller on eBay was offering American flags with the stars removed from the blue field and President Barack Obama's face inserted, and bloggers were outraged, promising to track them down. "To whoever is currently manufacturing and selling those flags..... I will personally and legally hunt each of you down for the sole purpose of making citizens arrests and prosecuting each and every one of you to the fullest extend of the law under U.S. Code pertaining to the flag of the United States of America," wrote one participant in a forum at Atlas Shrugs, where blogger Pamela Gellar posted...
  • Will Media Help Sell the New Obama American Flag?

    There's a new American flag available on the Internet that has a picture of President Obama in the corner where the stars representing our fifty states normally reside. Given how our media have assisted in selling Obama paraphernalia since Inauguration Day, one has to wonder what their position will be on the attractive keepsake pictured right.
