    A prominent social justice and environmental activist group with high-level access in the Biden administration employs one of the so-called “top soldiers” of the Nation of Islam, a Black nationalist religious organization with a long track record of antisemitism and racism. Terence Muhammad, the lead events and field coordinator for the Washington, D.C.-based nonprofit Hip Hop Caucus, has repeatedly praised the Nation of Islam and its current leader, Louis Farrakhan, according to a Fox News Digital review of social media posts. The Hip Hop Caucus, whose stated mission is to fight injustice and enact change, has been involved in key...

    A Donald Trump Super Tuesday victory parade meant that it was time to for CNN's Van Jones to go full apocalypse. On Wednesday, in the aftermath of Nikki Haley's withdrawal from the 2024 presidential primary race, anchor Jim Acosta asked Jones how Joe Biden could earn the votes from Haley supporters and donors. That provided the opportunity for Jones to conjure up images of "Russian tanks rolling through Europe" if Trump returns to the White House.

    Black leaders are condemning former President Trump’s recent comments about Black voters as “racist.” Speaking at the Black Conservative Federation (BCF) annual gala in South Carolina on Friday, Trump said his legal woes have earned him the support of Black voters around the country. “I got indicted for nothing, for something that is nothing,” Trump told the crowd. “And a lot of people said that’s why the Black people like me, because they have been hurt so badly and discriminated against, and they actually viewed me as I’m being discriminated against. It’s been pretty amazing but possibly, maybe, there’s something...

    On Friday’s broadcast of HBO’s “Real Time,” host Bill Maher stated that under our current system, immigration hasn’t been positive for the U.S. and the reaction of sanctuary cities to having migrants bused to them shows this. Maher began by saying that “some immigration” is “the lifeblood of this country.” Later in the segment, CNN Senior Political Commentator and former Obama Adviser Van Jones stated, “Immigration is good for America. It’s positive for America.”

    Former Obama apparatchik Van Jones was on CNN Thursday, applying heavy pressure to Old Joe Biden to get him to end the U.S. alliance with Israel and abandon the Jewish state to the tender mercies of Hamas and the Islamic Republic of Iran. Today’s youth, said Jones, and remember, the children are our future and all that, have a cutting new nickname for the sinister old kleptocrat in the Oval Office: Genocide Joe. And if Old Joe doesn’t throw Israel to the wolves, and pronto, that nickname is going to stick. What Jones didn’t say, however, was the most important...

    On Tuesday’s broadcast of “CNN This Morning” CNN Political Commentator and former Obama Adviser Van Jones stated that while there are good jobs numbers in the black community, “they’re crappy jobs.” Co-host Phil Mattingly asked, “[T]he Biden team has constantly tried to make the pitch on the economy that, look, if you look at the topline numbers, it’s great, it’s defying all expectations and people responding to pollsters say, no, it’s not, not at all. We completely disagree. Although, in the last couple of weeks, we’ve seen a shift in consumer sentiment. The University of Michigan survey popped 13 points...

    Perhaps CNN analyst Van Jones might want to check his memory banks before blasting someone for acknowledging something that Jones himself has discussed as a very real issue. On Wednesday, following the GOP presidential debate in Tuscaloosa, Jones went on a very emotional rampage denouncing Vivek Ramaswamy for daring to mention a subject that Democrats have often discussed, namely the Great Replacement Theory. And one of those who have discussed and analyzed that theory was Van Jones himself, just two years ago.Ramaswamy said during the debate, “The great replacement theory is not some grand right-wing conspiracy theory, but a basic...

    CNN analyst Van Jones said he was “shaking” watching GOP presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy on the debate stage Wednesday night, warning that the country is witnessing “the rise of an American demagogue.” In a panel discussion on CNN after the fourth GOP primary debate, Jones denounced Ramaswamy’s embrace of conspiracy theories and warned, “That guy is dangerous. That’s dangerous.” “And the smug, condescending way that he just spews this poison out, is very, very dangerous. Because he won’t stop Trump, but he’s going to outlive Trump by about 50 years,” he said.

    The real facts about the ADL, Musk and the man he's too afraid to fight. The ADL is a garbage leftist organization. It was never good for anything but under its current head, Jonathan Greenblatt, it’s become a generic woke group dedicated to intersectionality. I have spent over a decade exposing the ADL for what it is including, last week, for its decision to spend the anniversary of the Crown Heights Pogrom together with Al Sharpton in Washington D.C. Last year, Musk met with a coalition of leftist groups, Color of Change (formerly founded by Van Jones) , the NAACP...

    CNN commentator Van Jones has been pushed out of his own non-profit after a bust up in the senior ranks. Jones was praised as an extraordinary leader and handed $100 million by Jeff Bezos for his philanthropic endeavors in 2021, but now faces the humiliation of being turned out of his own organization. The liberal left the board of Dream.org after a blowout with senior leadership, the Daily Beast reported on Thursday night.

    CNN commentator Van Jones pointed out what he said was an aggressive approach by Fulton County, Ga., District Attorney Fani Willis (D) in indicting former President Trump and more than a dozen others in connection with his efforts to overturn the state’s 2020 election result. “Well, she didn’t throw the book at him, she threw the library. I think the difference between her approach and Jack Smith’s approach is really night and day,” Jones said during CNN’s live coverage of Monday night’s Trump indictment, his fourth this year. “So you have got a very different player that just stepped on...

    CNN political commentator Van Jones said Monday on “Erin Burnett OutFront” that 2024 hopeful Gov. Ron DeSantis’s (R-FL) wrapping Pride Month campaign video shows he was “worse than” former President Donald Trump. Jones said, “It’s a disgraceful decision on the part of the Supreme Court. But DeSantis should be ashamed of himself. Anybody who is jumping up and down saying hey, anybody but Trump. We want a Ron DeSantis. We think Ron DeSantis can beat Trump. We love Ron DeSantis. take those words back, because this guy is worse than Trump. Ron DeSantis is worse than Donald Trump.”

    CNN analyst Van Jones pointed criticism for the Supreme Court on Thursday over what he described as the high court’s ever-more out-of-touch decisions. Jones said the court’s decisions which prevent affirmative action, allow sexual orientation discrimination and shot down President Biden’s loan forgiveness plan create a crisis of legitimacy which could undermine the tenets of the entire country. “This is dangerous stuff, because when you have a legitimacy crisis for the court, you have a legitimacy crisis for the country,” he argued. “You can imagine a generation of younger Americans looking at the Supreme Court that is so out of...

    CNN regular Van Jones took some backlash after suggesting that Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg would be wise to back off and not indict former President Donald Trump — or at least wait and see whether he’d face charges in Georgia first. Jones made the comments during a Monday panel discussion hosted by Pamela Brown, and he argued that pushing for an indictment over “hush money” allegedly paid to a porn star was proof that the leftists did not have their act together with regard to coming after Trump. “If anybody is a Republican and they had been afraid there...

    Left-wing CNN commentator Van Jones authored an opinion piece suggesting that the former police officers charged in the death of 29-year-old Tyre Nichols may have been tainted by racism, even though the officers are black, as was the victim. The five men, who have all been fired from the Memphis Police Department, were charged with second-degree murder, aggravated assault, and more. Video footage of the Jan. 7 incident was released on Friday. Nichols died just days after incident. Jones contended that the black officers could have been influenced by racism. "In short, racial animus can still be a factor, even...

    As you might have noticed, it has become de rigueur to regard whiteness as a very bad thing. In a USA Today article "America's overdue reckoning with white supremacy: 'We have allowed evil to flourish" the lily white liberal Kirsten Powers goes to great efforts in an attempt to purge herself of her original sin. There is nothing more insufferable than the self-righteous virtue signaling white liberal. The article makes a reference to George Floyd. Then we have an even more overt message- whiteness itself is evil. Kesha Hamilton is a Michigan school board member. Hamilton made a statement to...

Video of the police officers beating Tyre Nichols was released Friday evening as Antifa and BLM incite riots. Memphis businesses have boarded up in...

He wants this election, frankly, to be a choice between Trump and himself, and not just a referendum on inflation, etc. So, that’s...

    Left-leaning CNN political analyst Van Jones praised Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis on Thursday for what he described as a “very smart” response to billionaire Elon Musk’s tweet expressing potential support for the governor in the 2024 presidential election cycle. Jones weighed in after CNN aired a clip of DeSantis’ response to a tweet in which Musk said he was leaning toward backing the Florida governor if he runs for president in 2024. The South Africa native also noted that he supported Andrew Yang during the 2020 election but “DeSantis has a better chance of winning.” “So what I would say,...
