    Pop icon and prolific tweeter Cher hosted a fundraiser for Hillary Clinton on Cape Cod Sunday that reportedly raised more than $1.5 million for the Democratic presidential nominee’s campaign. Approximately 1,000 people attended the “summer celebration” event at the Pilgrim Monument & Museum in Provincetown, including the 70-year-old “Believe” singer, who did not perform, according to the Cape Cod Times. In her signature emoji-heavy tweeting style, the singer praised Clinton’s speech at the event in two posts late Sunday night and early Monday morning.

    The Tampa chapter of the New Black Panther Party has made an official decision to kick out one of its members after he gave a recent television interview in which he stated his opinion of police had changed. In his interview with WTVT (FL), Clarence Jones also known as Ali Abdul Muhammad knowingly and willfully misrepresented himself as a leader of our organization, despite being removed from leadership approximately two months ago by collective decision, TNBPP told the Daily Caller in a statement.

    Just as you would expect, the 2016 BET (Black Entertainment Television) Awards were full of Black Lives Matter references and reminders to register to vote and then get out the vote for Hillary Clinton. After the opening of the award ceremony featured Beyonc and her back-up dancers marching into the auditorium to a Martin Luther King, Jr. speech, actor and producer Terence J went on to say, Your vote is your voice, and reminded everyone to register and vote smart as he introduced the show hosts, ABCs Blackish stars Anthony Anderson and Tracee Ellis Ross.

    It is necessary to state at the outset that I despise Neo-Nazis. But that does not mean that I approve of violent attacks on them as they peacefully exercise their rights to free speech. And that seems to have been what happened in Sacramento yesterday, despite media reports that report violence erupts and other such passive voice euphemisms that obscure the difference between perpetrator and victim. An important caveat is that I was not there and am relying on both reading between the lines of media reports and on local Sacramento talk radio.

We call on Congress to do more to prevent the gun violence that kills more than...

"Right now, I dont know exactly the answer to that," Lynch candidly replied. "I believe she was going to travel but I do not know exactly her location now."

He said, 'Who's that hot little girl running around?'" He went on, "He was always very open about describing women by their breast size."

The goal of the group will be to push national adoption of the same universal background checks that have failed in California, Colorado, Washington state, and Paris. In fact, Petraeus will be pushing the same background checks that Giffords attacker passed in order to acquire the gun he used to wound her on January 8, 2011.

    President Barack Obama probably needed his gown to keep him warm as he delivered a commencement speech at Rutgers University amid historically cold temperatures in New Jersey. But as he touted global warming, Obama denied that colder than usual temperatures meant that climate change didnt exist. Now, I recognize it doesnt feel like the planet is warmer right now. I understand, he said, acknowledging that there was hail when he landed on Air Force One in Newark. But Obama insisted that it was still a reality, citing overwhelming consensus from the scientific community to back his claim. He also mocked...
  • Federally funded activist groups take part in anti-Trump May Day demonstration

    Several activist groups who have received funds from the federal government helped organize the May Day anti-Trump demonstrations in Los Angeles. Most nonprofit groups are prohibited by law from engaging in partisan political activity. However, according to the Daily Caller, it's difficult to say if any of the groups violated the law. Whether they violated the law depends on their nonprofit classification. If the groups are classified 501(c)(3), they are allowed to participate in "voter education" activities. No doubt, the nonprofits involved in this demonstration would claim that's what they were doing. But they have nothing to worry about. Does...

    Students at Ohio State University who attempted to occupy the area outside of president Michael V. Drakes office late Wednesday night experienced a surprise and a taste of the cruel, real world when a senior administrator coolly advised them that they would be arrested and expelled if they didnt retreat from their occupied space. The protest began as such protests often do these days with a set of demands and the promise to remain firmly ensconced at Bricker Hall, Ohio States main administration building, until school officials capitulated to the demands.

    The inaugural meeting of a Students for Trump group at Portland State University (PSU) ended in chaos Thursday after a crowd of protesters arrived at the gathering and prevented it from going forward. The crowded meeting at the Oregon school began civilly, but after about 40 minutes it became a mess, as nearly 50 protesters clashed with a couple dozen Trump supporters in an environment of shouting, grandstanding, and threats, according to The Vanguard. A five-minute video posted to YouTube Friday shows a rowdy scene with students standing on tables and often deliberately being as noisy and disruptive as possible.

    Does it ever seem like the entertainment industry needlessly interjects biased and politically-charged content into otherwise entertaining television programs or films? If so, rest assured youre not unreasonably suspicious.

Now, a new series of photographs of campus propaganda posters reveals how this unholy alliance plays out on American campuses where students are incited to join the Islamic war against the Jews of Israel with appeals to their sense of "social justice" and desire to address historic wrongs such as racism, colonialism and the mistreatment of women. Many naive Jewish students are seduced into joining these anti-Israel coalitions out of a desire to help the oppressed but find themselves ensnared...

Amongst these, presumably, were Disney executives ecstatic that the $4bn they paid George Lucas for franchise rights looks to have been a sound investment. Initial reactions from all three screening rooms where the film was shown for the first time – as well as from social media – suggest that JJ Abrams has the chops to please both critics and fans, and that The Force Awakens may well recoup at least half the $4bn by itself.

    The chickens of intolerance and communist social justice have come home to roost on the American campus. Decades of Marxist indoctrination by the vaunted communist academia are finally paying off—our cultural heritage is replaced by cultural Marxism and primitive cultures that are deemed superior to ours and worshipped. Academia has been blotting out the past and revising history for a while but with increased vengeance since Jimmy Carter founded the U.S. Department of Education on October 17, 1979. Our children’s education has depreciated considerably as evidenced by test scores and the quality of mis-educated youth in our country who can...

I’ve lived through two: at Washington University in St. Louis, in 1968, and then about a decade later at the University of Rome. In the summer of ’68 I saw a good deal of the French “Revolution,” which took over most of Paris for a week or so. Its headquarters were at the Sorbonne. It’s in the nature of campus revolts that the leaders aren’t going to be satisfied with limited reforms to the school; they are inspired by inflated rhetoric, and they see themselves at the center of a great...

    In the past few months the Black Lives Matter organization has managed to largely hijack the Democrat primaries by strong-arming both Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders into vouching for the movement, despite its radical calls for violence against the police and divisive rhetoric against putative white supremacy. Democrat spokespeople and the main-stream media routinely brush this aside as unrepresentative of the organization in general, though no BLM leader has condemned the incitement. On FOX, Bill O’Reilly has repeatedly confronted the media, Democrat operatives and leftist intellectuals for excusing BLM’s divisiveness and calls for violence.

Gates held forth on his anti-capitalist views in an interview published in this month’s issue of The Atlantic. Gates, who made his billions in free markets, declared that “there’s no fortune to be made” in private-sector attempts to lower CO2 levels.

    From USA Today: Police unions in New York, Philadelphia and Los Angeles have already called for a boycott of Tarantino films—his latest, The Hateful Eight, lands on Christmas Day—and now the New Jersey State Police Benevolent Association has joined the shame-on-Tarantino chorus. Tarantino is under pressure because of inflammatory remarks he made at a protest against police brutality in New York last weekend, in which he suggested some cops who shoot civilians are ‘murderers’ and he stands ‘with the murdered.’ I’m all for freedom of speech, but I have to side with the police unions on this one. Maybe it’s...
  • John Kerry 'pulsating' with propaganda

    John Kerry just offered up such a load of horse manure that he outdid even the most outrageous of dhimmi fools (and there are a lot to choose from). Writing for Front Page Magazine, Daniel Greenfield reports on a tweet Kerry sent out on Thursday that read: "The Middle East today is the home of populations that are energetic, youthful, forward-looking. It is in them that we place our faith." Seriously? Yes, the secretary of state – a professional fool – is serious. But Kerry wasn’t finished. He had more to say. And he said it (again, pathetically, using Twitter):...

The State Departments Office of Inspector General (OIG) report said it received reports concerning the use of private email accounts for official business, and identified instances where emails labeled "sensitive but unclassified" were sent from or received by personal email accounts.

  • Ben & Jerrys Newest Flavor: Iran Deal Ice cream entrepreneurs are sweet on Presi

    In an email sent to supporters of the progressive political group, ice cream icons Jerry Greenfield and Ben Cohen asked recipients to join them in supporting the Iran deal to keep America out of another war in the Middle East. Lobbyists and billionaires plan to spend over $40 million to stop the diplomatic deal with Iranthe one the Obama Administration negotiated to prevent Iran from getting nuclear weapons. Thats dangerous, because if too many Democrats listen to the flood of hawkish, misinformation-ridden TV adsand if they vote with Republicansthey could override the presidents agreement in just about a month.
