  • Alveda King slams Obama’s political speech at Lewis funeral as ‘wordplay’ that takes nation back to segregated 60s

    Alveda King, niece of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., slammed former President Barack Obama for the wordplay in his eulogy for Congressman John Lewis, saying he took the nation back to the segregated 60s. While Obama couldn’t summon enough courage to speak President Trump’s name, there was no mistaking his criticism of the president in what sounded more like a stump speech than a eulogy. As smug and arrogant as ever, not to mention divisive, the former president used the occasion to push the myth of voter suppression. “Even as we sit here, there are those in power who are...
  • Sen. Barrasso on House $3.4T COVID-19 Relief Bill: 'Nancy Pelosi Living on Fantasy Island'

    When asked how many trillion dollars should be spent on the latest coronavirus relief bill – the Republicans want $1 trillion, the Democrats want $3.4 trillion – Sen. John Barrasso (R-Wyo.) said House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is living on “Fantasy Island” with her costly, deficit-hiking plan. At the U.S. Capitol on Tuesday, CNS News asked Senator Barrasso, “Nancy Pelosi has said that the $1 trillion HEALS Act proposed by Senate Republicans for COVID relief isn’t enough and instead proposed the $3.4 trillion HEROES Act. How many trillion should Congress spend on COVID relief? The senator responded, “Well, the problem...
  • Listen: Blues Singer Lady A Slams ‘Woke’ Lady Antebellum for Taking Her Name: ‘They Thought I Was Irrelevant’

    The country group Lady Antebellum announced in June that it would change its name to “Lady A,” a move that upset Seattle blues singer Anita White, who has been using the name for decades. “I began using the name back in the late ’80s,” Lady A told The Kyle Olson Show this week. Lady Antebellum, in an attempt to shed its name’s link to slavery, simply adopted “Lady A.” “This is what happens when privilege wants to be woke,” Lady A said, “but really doesn’t know how.” “In your being woke, you can’t go from Lady Antebellum to Lady A...

    Well, if you ever want to see linguistic gymnastics, just take a look at this USA Today’s fact check of the claim that the Democrats didn’t create the Ku Klux Klan or start the American Civil War. Are they really just low on material over there? Because this wasn’t even said by a major politician. It was an Instagram user. Yeah, so for USA Today to pull out the fact check guns on this is a tell-tale sign that the Left is fully aware of their racist past. And given how left-wing mob violence has grown and ‘woke’ crybabies taking...

    In the face of violent protests throughout the nation, the rallying cry by many perpetrating the mayhem is for police to be defunded or disbanded. The people of Portland, Oregon, had a brief glimpse of that reality, as police were forced to ignore all but emergency calls after law enforcement was tied up responding to violent rioting over the Independence Day holiday weekend. Public Information Officer Lt. Tina Jones provided hourly video updates on the situation on the Portland Police Bureau Twitter feed overnight Saturday into early Sunday morning, including announcing that the city would not be able to respond...

    How did CBS Evening News celebrate Earth Day? By sharing the ugly sentiment that humans were not needed. That’s exactly what reporter John Blackstone suggested in his Wednesday report touting how the deadly Chinese coronavirus, which had killed more than 47,000 Americans and left 22 million unemployed, was keeping the country stuck inside. “Tonight, we mark the 50th anniversary of Earth day. There were supposed to be big celebrations around the world, but instead, people are celebrating inside and they're celebrating cleaner air and cleaner water,” boasted anchor Norah O’Donnell as she led into the segment. Blackstone kicked off his...

    Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Speaker Pelosi released a joint statement Monday morning demanding that Republicans stop “political posturing” on COVID-19 small business relief legislation, after the pair of Democratic leaders successfully blocked additional funding for the bipartisan Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) last week: The delay of additional funding, as the original funding runs out as small businesses begin to see relief, is at the hands of Sen. Schumer and Speaker Pelosi, who torpedoed the bill when their list of unrelated demands were not met. Republicans, led by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), proposed a clean bill...

    Saul Alinsky may have written his Rules for Radicals to give leftists an advantage in the battle for America’s soul, but that doesn’t mean that the rules aren’t tactically wise. On Friday, Gun Owners of America (“GOA”) decided to put into play several of those rules when it asked to have Sen. Chuck Schumer “red-flagged” as a potentially dangerous person. GOA’s request focuses on the fact that, on Wednesday, while speaking to protesters at a Planned Parenthood rally outside of the Supreme Court, Schumer sent a direct message to Justices Gorsuch and Kavanaugh: I want to tell you, Gorsuch, I...

    The Vermont democratic socialist went on his usual line about how socialism is awesome. He railed against what he sees as socialism for the rich, calling out Donald Trump for getting hundreds of millions of dollars in tax breaks for his business ventures. Sanders also railed against the welfare state expenditures for Walmart’s workers because the Walton family pays what the Left sees as “starvation wages.” And then Bloomberg torpedoed it in a couple of sentences. “What a wonderful country we have. The best-known socialist in the country happens to be a millionaire with three houses. What did I miss...

    Making good on her promise to take her environmental activism back to Los Angeles when she closed up shop in Washington, D.C., Jane Fonda and friends held a Fire Drill Fridays rally and march Friday. Her friends included actor Joaquin Phoenix who is creating headlines of his own recently for his outspoken climate alarmism. She is still wearing the red coat. Fonda is back home in Los Angeles to film Netflix’s Grace and Frankie. She was arrested a few times in Washington, though not enough arrests to garner a longer than an overnight stay in jail because of her filming...

    With the success of Sen. Bernie Sanders' presidential candidacy and the power that four far-left freshmen have wielded in Congress, socialism has become a major issue in 2020. But country rock superstar Charlie Daniels points out in his latest Soap Box column that socialism in all its forms has never worked. "Not Karl Marx's version, not Fidel Castro's version, not Bernie Sanders version, not the insane version Alexandria 'Cookie' Ocasio-Cortez is pushing, not Elizabeth Warren's Pollyanna ramblings that will probably include free pedicures before it's over, nobody, no how, no way has ever been successful at socialism," he writes. Nevertheless,...

    The party constantly lecturing America on the importance of diversity is set to have an all-white debate stage in the upcoming Democratic presidential debate scheduled for Dec. 19th. "Diversity is a strength!" doesn't seem to be resonating much with the Democratic Party these days. The candidates who currently qualify for the upcoming debate are Sens. Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders and Amy Klobuchar, as well as South Bend Mayor Peter Buttigieg and hedge fund billionaire Tom Steyer. The best part is watching the Democratic candidates squirm to explain why the process has weeded out any people of color two months before...

    Acting Homeland Security Deputy Secretary Ken Cuccinelli was publicly harassed Wednesday by Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley when the two ran into each other at a bar in Washington, D.C. They crossed paths at an Irish pub, The Dubliner, where they were both attending an event for graduates of Gonzaga College High School. Rather than being able to enjoy his Guinness, however, Cuccinelli was subject to a “passion-laced and shame-invoking tirade” by O’Malley over the Trump administration’s immigration policies.

    Liberal media outlets were thrilled at Shepard Smith's first public remarks since abruptly leaving Fox News last month. Smith hosted a dinner of the Committee to Protect Journalists, and proclaimed he was donating a half million dollars to the group. Michael Grynbaum at The New York Times reported he called "for a steadfast defense of independent journalism, while offering a few subtle barbs at President Trump’s treatment of the press." Subtle? “Intimidation and vilification of the press is now a global phenomenon. We don’t have to look far for evidence of that,” Smith said. “Our belief a decade ago that...

    The University of Virginia canceled the 21-gun salute portion of its annual Veterans Day ceremony – citing gun violence. James Ryan, the university’s president, posted a statement on Facebook explaining that there were concerns about firing weapons on school property in light of recent school shootings. He said there were two specific reasons. "First, to minimize disruptions to classes, given that this event is located at the juncture of four primary academic buildings and is held at a time that classes are in session; and second, recognizing concerns related to firing weapons on the Grounds in light of gun violence...

    Antifa members didn't need to do much costume shopping for Halloween this year. The violent leftist group wears masks and terrorizes people all year round. According to Andy Ngo, editor at large at The Post Millennial, six Antifa thugs showed up outside his home on Halloween night. The journalist tweeted images and video of the six men who Mr. Ngo claims wore print-out masks of the journalist's face, pounded on a window, and recorded footage of the journalist's home.

    Even though the left and right came together to celebrate the Obama administration’s victory killing Osama Bin Laden in 2011, the leftists in the media couldn’t do the same for President Trump, when the U.S. military led a raid Saturday that killed prominent ISIS leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. The anti-Trump hosts of The View Monday were so bitter, that they basically admitted there wasn’t anything Trump could do that would be applauded by them, because he was “tainted.” Co-host Joy Behar gave a jaw-dropping response to the news. Whoopi Goldberg asked the table, “So can we at least agree that...

    Hollywood celebrities and business leaders have carbon footprints up to 300 times bigger than the rest of us, a study reveals, highlighting the hypocrisy of those who promote climate change activism while refusing to set foot on a commercial flight. Rich and famous “super-emitters” are such constant travelers they could also be encouraging others to follow in their slipstream by boasting of their private jet-setting habits on social media, researchers found.
