    The Power of Protest All in less than one week, Israel has repealed restrictions and is backing off vaccine mandates, even as cases and deaths are hitting new highs, and implausibly so in the most vaccinated and boosted country in the world. The UK has backed off too. Same in Denmark, Ireland, Finland, and Norway. Switzerland has joined in, and Sweden has rolled back its plans for an extended vaccine passport in has decided to get rid of them completely. Saskatchewan is ending all restrictions. We are seeing local governments and universities in the US gradually stepping back. No new...

    MSNBC ^ | March 10, 2011
    NPR's CEO and president, Vivian Schiller, has been forced to resign, the radio broadcaster's media correspondent said Wednesday, following an undercover sting in which a senior executive was videotaped describing Tea Party members as "racist." On Tuesday, Schiller had condemned the comments by Ron Schiller (no relation) — NPR Foundation's senior vice president for fundraising at the time — that were secretly filmed by political activist James O'Keefe of "Project Veritas." But a Wednesday statement from the chairman of NPR's board of directors, Dave Edwards, said the board had accepted Vivian Schiller's resignation "with deep regret." It was effective immediately......

    Aafia Siddiqui is a MIT-trained neuroscientist who married a top Al Qaeda operative who intended to blow up gas stations or poison water reservoirs in the United States. She is known as “Lady Al Qaeda,” and was convicted of attempting to murder Americans in Afghanistan after she was found with plans for a “mass casualty attack” in the United States, along with a list of New York landmarks. Aafia Siddiqui named Farha Ahmed as her legal counsel in a handwritten letter in October of 2010. Farha Ahmed was running for office in Texas. Farha Ahmed was the leader of the...

    A loose network of conservative groups with ties to major Republican donors and party-aligned think tanks is quietly lending firepower to local activists engaged in culture war fights in schools across the country. While they are drawn by the anger of parents opposed to school policies on racial history or COVID-19 protocols like mask mandates, the groups are often run by political operatives and lawyers standing ready to amplify local disputes. […] This growing support network highlights the energy and resources being poured into the cauldron of political debate in the nation’s schools. Republicans hope the efforts lay the groundwork...

    Enlist in your local Cajun Navy, the American refugees are coming.Watching the dumpster fire Joe Biden and his team lit with U.S. dollars and materiel in Afghanistan is demoralizing. Realizing we’re facing at least three more years of such catastrophic ineptitude, even if Biden is nominally replaced, is almost too much to absorb.Just eight months to the regime of “normalcy,” we’ve seen millions of unknowns crossing our southern border unchecked and child-raping third-world terrorists chasing off U.S. helicopters in Afghanistan. These are not accidents; these are man-made catastrophes. They are the direct result of our elites’ corruption and of American...

    Deutsche Welle ^ | 07.09.2021 | Ian Bateson
    The WerteUnion (Values Union) was founded in 2017 by members of Angela Merkel’s Christian Democrat Union (CDU) who believed that Germany’s last big-tent party had moved too far left. The movement followed a similar path to that of the Tea Party, which emerged in 2009 within the US’s Republican Party, bringing together libertarians and right-wing populists focused on challenging the leadership of the Republican Party, which they felt wasn’t doing enough to confront Democratic President Barack Obama. In contrast, the WerteUnion focused its ire within the center-right CDU on Chancellor Angela Merkel, whom adherents saw as being too liberal. Expansion...
  • 'True MAGA Supporters' Spark Raft of County Republican Party Resignations

    Several high-ranking county GOP officials have resigned after pressure from a group of outspoken critics questioning their leadership. Greenville County Republican Party's Chairman Jennifer Black, First Vice Chairman Stacy Shea and Executive Committeeman Randy Page released a statement announcing their departures on Thursday. This came after a group called mySCGOP, a South Carolina group of Republicans backing a "MAGA agenda," alongside members of the Greenville Tea Party, questioned the legitimacy of the convention that led to their leadership. MAGA stands for Make America Great Again, a phrase linked with former President Donald Trump. In joint remarks, shared via the Fresh...
  • Progressives continue to marvel at how successful the Tea Party was

    How much trouble are we in when progressives broadcast how to beat them and we still won't do it? There's an interesting article in The New Yorker and this paragraph stands tall above all the rest: This insurgent approach has caused establishment figures from both parties to refer to Justice Democrats and its ilk as the Tea Party of the left. Max Berger, an early employee, said, “If that’s supposed to mean that we’re equivalent to white-supremacist dipshits who want to blow up the government or move toward authoritarianism, then I would consider that both an insult and a really...

    The nation finds itself in a new time for choosing, and warrants the rise of a new cultural Tea Party born out of the ashes of the first.Parents began to take over a local school board last weekend with the triumph of two parents who captured seats on a platform to rid classrooms of state-sanctioned racism under the disguise of critical race theory. Cameron “Cam” Bryan, a civil engineer and father of four, and Hannah Smith, an attorney and mother of four, each picked up seats on the Carroll Independent School District school board in Southlake, Texas, between Dallas...

February usually is a bonanza month for the America Travel Agency, the business Avila runs at the corner of Whittier and LaVerne in East Los Angeles. Holy Week is in April, and most of Avila’s customers have family ties in Mexico, where the seven days between Palm Sunday and Easter are set aside like a spring break — the busiest travel time of the year.</p>
  • John Boehner: in 2010 a Republican could be a 'total moron' and still be elected in the midterms

    04/03/2021 6:36:18 AM PDT · by cotton1706 · 37 replies ^ | 4/2/21 | Grace Panetta
    In the excerpt, Boehner didn't hold back when assessing his new colleagues, saying that when he tried to offer the freshmen lawmakers guidance about being in Congress, his advice "went straight through the ears of most of them, especially the ones who didn't have brains that got in the way." Boehner also assigned some blame to conservative media outlets, especially Fox News, in incentivizing flashiness and outrage over substance, which he said made it harder for him to govern his caucus effectively. By 2013, Boehner wrote, "the chaos caucus in the House had built up their own power base thanks...

    The Tennessee State Senate unanimously passed the Lifetime Order of Protection Bill this week. The final vote will take place on Monday, March 15th on the House Floor. This bill is to help prevent victims of violent crimes from being re-victimized. My situation is only one example of why this legislation is needed here in TN. Unfortunately, there are other victims of horrific crimes in our state who need help also. On April 2, 2009, my life was turned upside down. Completely Shattered. My husband Ben was murdered in front of me by a man who was stalking me. This...

    Were you among the more than a billion-plus people who watched the 2014 Super Bowl? If so, like multi-millions of viewers, you might have been disappointed afterward to learn of the cheating that occurred. The Seattle Seahawks swamped the Denver Broncos, seemingly, on play after play, as if they knew exactly what the Broncos were going to do with each snap of the football.As it turned out, the Seahawks did know what the Broncos were going to do. As was revealed on talk shows a few days later by some of the Seahawks players themselves, they had stolen the signs...
  • New Evidence Implicates FBI Higher-Ups in Dishonesty of Anti-Trump Lawyer

    For the past year, defenders of the FBI have consistently downplayed the significance of an FBI staff lawyer falsifying evidence in the government’s investigation into Donald Trump’s relationship with Russia. They argue Kevin Clinesmith’s crime of altering a CIA document to obscure the fact that former Trump campaign aide Carter Page worked for U.S., not Russian, intelligence was a rare lapse in judgment by an overworked bureaucrat. It was not, his apologists say, part of any broader conspiracy to conceal exculpatory information from surveillance court judges, who never learned of Page’s history with the CIA before approving FBI warrants to...

    On Nov. 4, 2020, I suddenly saw with my own eyes the depth and breadth of the political corruption myself and others had tried and failed to prevent for so many years. I am angry. It’s not a passing emotion brought on by a single circumstance. This anger is a deep, painful, abiding anger created by a mix of frustration, despair, hopelessness, and injustice. For decades I have been told to trust American institutions and if I have grievances to work harder to improve them. I have done so, far more than most Americans, and my reward has been watching...

    Palin responded to comments in Obama's A Promised Land during a Friday evening interview with Newsmax. Both she and host Greg Kelly ridiculed Obama as "aloof and snobby as he's ever been" after he tied her to what he described as xenophobic and paranoid thinking that now dominates the Republican Party... ...Palin said Obama's depiction of her in his new book overlooks that she and the Tea Party movement at the time promoted diversity within the GOP, particularly the "Mama Grizzlies" embrace of conservative women. "It's the antithesis of what the left is acting out today. They're choosing people based...
