    The Southern Poverty Law Center said Thursday that it had fired its co-founder and chief trial lawyer, Morris Dees, after nearly a half-century, during which he helped build the organization into a fearsome powerhouse that focused on hate crimes and with an endowment that approached half a billion dollars. The group’s president, Richard Cohen, did not give a specific reason for the dismissal of Mr. Dees, 82, on Wednesday. But Mr. Cohen said in a statement that as a civil-rights group, the S.P.L.C. was “committed to ensuring that the conduct of our staff reflects the mission of the organization and...

    Columbus Dispatch ^ | November 25, 2018 | Darrel Rowland
    “What do you think about Sherrod Brown running for president?” Who wants to know? Sherrod Brown himself. The Democratic senator is asking for the opinions of supporters concerning a possible White House campaign. “I am reading your comments about this on Facebook and Twitter, and in private messages. What an honor to be part of that conversation,” he emailed supporters last week. Brown said he is considering a presidential campaign for the first time in his life, after a 6-point re-election win for his Senate seat earlier this month. “Our victory showed what happens when you fight for the people...
  • Ex-Ohio Lawmaker Arrested for Murder of Estranged Wife; MSM Plays 'Guess the Political Party'

    A former senior Ohio lawmaker who had served as assistant minority whip in the Ohio legislature was arrested this past weekend for the murder of his estranged wife. He had previously served nine months in state prison for assaulting her in 2014 while a common pleas judge in Cuyahoga County -- a position he had been appointed to by then-Gov. Ted Strickland (Democrat). But would you ever know that Lance Mason was a Democrat? Not if you relied on the media reporting. The Cleveland Plain Dealer reported: Former Cuyahoga Common Pleas Judge Lance Mason, who spent nine months in prison...

    Michael Avenatti said he is “still considering” running for president in 2020 even after being arrested Wednesday on suspicion of felony domestic violence. “I’m still considering it,” the lawyer told USA Today. He said his “first priority right now is clearing my name,” and argued that a person’s character is determined by how they overcome difficulties. "I will not be intimidated," he told the paper in a text message. "The measure of a person is how they get up when they are knocked down."

    As you know, celebrity attorney Michael Avenatti was arrested Wednesday night after having been accused of domestic violence. Fox News’ Bret Baier was among those noticing some irony in Avenatti reminding everybody that a presumption of innocence is how things are done in the American legal system, but this evening Avenatti fired back: ..Contrary to @foxnews and others, I have always advocated for due process including with Judge Kavanaugh

Our law enforcement sources say Avenatti was arrested Wednesday after his estranged wife filed a felony DV report. We're told her face was "swollen and bruised." Our sources say the alleged incident occurred Tuesday, but there was a confrontation Wednesday between the two at an exclusive apartment building in the Century City area of L.A. We're told during Wednesday's confrontation the woman ran out of the apartment building and was on the...

    You reach Harvard University's biological anthropology department by climbing five flights of fusty wooden stairs in the Peabody Museum in Cambridge, Mass. It's an old building, haunted by the remnants of long lost tribes and the ghosts of an era when anthropologists thought nothing of collecting the paraphernalia of ancestor worship, not to mention the bones of the ancestors themselves. But it's not bones that have brought me to the Peabody today. I've made the climb to meet Carole Hooven, a young graduate student in biological anthropology, and Richard Wrangham, one of the world's leading experts on chimpanzee behavior. They...

    PHILADELPHIA — Sid Vicious, the soulless Machiavellian political operative, is here, dragging the baggage of Hillary Clinton’s many scandals with him for all of America’s voters to see. I refer to legendary sleaze-monger Sidney Blumenthal, a man who specialized in assassinating the character of those individuals that Bill Clinton’s White House considered to be problems. Blumenthal’s the Clintonista who lied about Monica Lewinsky, claiming she was a “stalker” of the then-president when in reality she was just another of Slick Willy’s flings.

    Neil Steinberg of the Chicago Sun-Times decided last week to purchase an AR-15 following the Pulse night club shooting in Orlando, Florida. His purpose, he said, was to demonstrate how simple it was and to explore Illinois’ gun laws concerning assault weapons. When he bought the gun, Steinberg planned to sell it back to the store. However, his purchase was stopped by the gun store, which canceled the transaction during Illinois’ required 24-hour waiting period after discovering he had lied on his background check about his history of alcohol abuse and domestic violence. In his article, Steinberg admitted that while...

    Nine Georgia sheriff’s deputies were fired Friday following an investigation into the death of suspect Matthew Ajibade while in police custody. Ajibade, 21, was arrested in Savannah for domestic abuse on January 1. He was tased and chained to a chair in an isolation cell following an altercation with deputies that left three officers injured, one of them with a concussion. When the deputies next checked on Ajibade he was unresponsive. The autopsy was not released, pending possible criminal charges.

  • Carl Bernstein's Complaint: Media Too Fair To Republicans!

    Poor Carl Bernstein: he's suffering a bad bout of MSM nostalgia. He longs for the good old media days when the news was dominated by the likes of the New York Times, the Washington Post and the then three broadcast networks. They could slam Republicans with impunity, without any conservative media counterweight. In covering the shutdown, today's media culture, kvetches Carl, is just too darn fair and balanced in its treatment of those lying, McCarthyite Republicans. That's why President Obama and the congressional Dems' poll numbers are surprisingly bad. Such was Carl's complaint on today's Morning Joe. View the video...

    Alec Baldwin has said plenty of outrageous things over his career when untethered from a movie script, or teleprompter. Now Mr. Baldwin has his own live radio talk show. This may prove to be a goldmine of Rorschach like material, in the brave new scientific frontiers of narcissism. The far left actor has aspirations of political office. No not just a seat on a local school board, but it has been said that he would like a shot at the Mayors office of New York City. After the Mayors office, the sky is the limit. Well, if this radio show...
  • Alec Baldwin: Reagan Was a ‘Failed Actor’ Who Snubbed the Underprivileged

    Alec Baldwin isn’t afraid to let his anti-Republican ideals surface from time to time. On his new radio show (yes, he’s been given a show), “Here’s the Thing,” Baldwin decided to take some jabs at Ronald Reagan — a man who, like Baldwin, got his start in acting. Baldwin didn’t go easy on Reagan either. “He was a failed actor who in my business what happens is you become ripe and you fall from that tree and you go — and he went into this other field because it was a role for him to play,” he said. But he...

    So unfolds the latest chapter in Alec Baldwin’s ongoing flirtation with public office: The “30 Rock” actor told CNN’s Eliot Spitzer that he’s “very interested” in a political run. Of course, Baldwin knows there are plenty of obstacles in his way: He loves acting and his current state of New York is flooded with established political players. “It’s something that I’m very, very interested in,” said Baldwin in an interview set to air Wednesday night. He said what he wants to see from elected leaders is “people who have not lost sight about what the middle class in this country...
  • When Did You Stop Beating Your Wife, Congressman Wilson?

    Seriously, though—when did Congressman Charlie Wilson (D, OH-06) stop beating his wife? Moreover, why is the media covering this up? Two weeks ago, Big Government editor Mike Flynn obtained Belmont County (Ohio) court documents that revealed that Wilson repeatedly beat his wife Clara, to the point where she would be unable to stand. According to Wilson’s own testimony, he would regularly kick, slap, beat, and punch Clara, accusing her of adultery. Clara’s deposition states that Congressman Wilson punched her with enough force to knock the wind of her, leaving her beaten and bloodied, slumped up against the kitchen cabinet. To...
