    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...

    On Monday’s broadcast of CNN’s “Situation Room,” CNN Political Commentator and former Obama administration official Van Jones stated that President Joe Biden wants the election “to be a choice between Trump and himself, and not just a referendum on inflation, etc.” And that Biden can tell people, “I’m not just going to write you off” but “That is not coming across yet, and it needs to.” Jones said, “I think he’s trying to do something that’s difficult. 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,...

    CNN political commentator Van Jones said Friday on “Erin Burnett OutFront” that President Joe Biden has no heir apparent, seemingly dismissing Vice President Kamala Harris. Burnett said, “President Biden, we’re learning, is frustrated because he feels there are powers in his own party that are essentially saying don’t you even think about running again. He’s apparently frustrated that they’re trying to run him out of office is the feeling and get him to not run for re-election. Now, to be honest, Van, many Americans did assume he was going to be a one-term president, and that’s what he wanted to...

    VIDEOWhen CNN hired Michael Fanone as their Law Enforcement Analyst they probably didn't really know what they were going to get. Perhaps because Fanone was a Capitol Hill police officer who appeared as a friendly witness before the January 6 Committee to support the now crumbling narrative about an "insurrection" they thought Fanone would automatically support the liberal stance on law enforcement in general. When he went off the narrative and blamed the surge of crime on the media and liberal politicians it came as quite a shock to the two liberal hosts, John Berman and Kasie Hunt, who were...

When asked about Biden confirming Vice President Kamala Harris will be his 2024 running mate, Jones said, “I think a lot of Democratic voters appreciate that. That’s the one time that you don’t want to give any fuzzy, foggy, let-me-tell-you-a-long-story answer. Clear and direct, they are a team. He is staying together. They are going to fight it forward.”

    CNN commentator Van Jones said Glenn Youngkin's in the Virginia governor's race could be evidence of the emergence of "the delta variant of Trumpism." Jones suggested that Youngkin, who welcomed Trump's endorsement in the contest but also sought a distance from the former president, represented the same kind of politics as Trump. But Jones said it came in a packaging that could be better sold to voters and that might help the GOP win elections. "When this election is over we will know, have we seen the emergence of the delta variant of Trumpism," Jones said Tuesday evening during CNN's...

    The co-hosts of "The Five" blasted President Biden Thursday for his administration's failures which even the liberal mainstream media have begun to recognize. As Biden's poll numbers drop amid inflation and supply chain shortages, at least one left-wing voice has turned on his own. "The honeymoon is over," political commentator Van Jones declared Tuesday on CNN. "This honeymoon was over faster than Ilhan Omar and her brother," "The Five" co-host Greg Gutfeld retorted. "The real question for people like Van Jones is, ‘What did you expect?’," co-host Katie Pavlich said. She called Biden a "lame-duck president," citing his inability to...

    Leftist activists have already been pushing Mastercard, Visa, and others to expand their ban beyond illegal activities, with the eventual goal of demonetarizing opposing political views.Last week, Mastercard, Inc., announced new rules for banks processing credit card payments to pornography websites, designed to combat child pornography and sex trafficking. Unfortunately, for a country whose corporate overlords refuse (or are unable) to distinguish between intrinsic evil and prudential policy judgments, this promising development will likely also serve as a beta test to further attack conservative groups.In December, Mastercard and Visa banned the use of their credit cards on the Pornhub website...
