  • Ebony Editor Not 'Comfortable' With Calling Dallas Cop Massacre a Hate Crime

    At her personal web site's home page, Ebony Magazine Senior Editor Jamilah Lemieux says she is "One of those pesky Black feminists who challenges the status quo, while remaining fresh and fab at all times." "Fresh and fab" would hardly describe Ms. Lemieux's Wednesday appearance on CNN Newsroom, where she took issue with, per the White House, President Barack Obama's characterization of the murders of five Dallas law enforcement officers as "hate crimes." You see, that's not her "most comfortable word choice," because it involved white cops. As will be seen in the latter portion of the video (HT Zero...

    Yet another example of an innocent American attempting to travel by plane in the U.S. (Pic: WREG) It seems people aren’t just suing the TSA for missing their flights these days. An 18-year-old partially deaf girl, blind in one eye and with limited ability to walk and talk, spent 17 years of her life travelling between Chattanooga and Memphis for treatment of her brain tumor at a children’s hospital. Her last experience returning home from treatment via the Memphis Airport, however, left her beaten, blooded, and locked up in a Shelby County jail like the potential terrorist the TSA...

    In the mid to late 1930s and throughout the World War II years, the Nazi Minister of Propaganda Josef Goebbels helped the German National Socialist Party spread their message to the German people. Goebbels was a master of propaganda, helping create the environment in Germany that eventually led to the later crimes against humanity committed by the Nazi leadership. The German people were fed a steady stream of whatever message the Nazi Party wanted them to receive. During the war most Germans knew that the Jews and other “undesirables” were being abused, but the true horror of the death camps...

    ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) -- A day after a riot erupted outside a Donald Trump rally, Albuquerque officials blamed the downtown melee not on impassioned politics but on an unruly group intent on creating chaos in a city that has seen more than its share of violence. Some participants openly admitted that they set out to cause disruption. Many in the crowd were seen with gang tattoos and at one point chanted to Trump supporters that they controlled the streets. "I woke up all hung over and stuff," said Chelsea Rae Gray, a 24-year-old musician. "And then I said, 'Let's see...

    ----- Accusing Republicans of being Hitler for assorted petty reasons dates back to the time when Hitler was still around. FDR accused Republican candidate Wendell Willkie of using “Hitler tactics” by repeating his slogans frequently. But it was the frequent associations of Republicans and Hitler by Democrats that was the true Big Lie. Its only purpose was a senseless association through the repetition of ridiculous and baseless accusations that every single Republican was just Hitler in a better suit. ----- Republicans aren’t progressive. Therefore they’re Hitler. It’s really that simple. ----- Optimists thought that the Democrats had reached “Peak Hitler”...

    The invective against Donald Trump has recently reached new heights, as his detractors have dusted off the old “Hitler” comparisons and brought them to the fore.

Needless to say, such misguided attempts at castigating Trump sickeningly diminish the real atrocities committed by the real Hitler. These people show how little they know, but in addition, last night they showed their hypocrisy.

Who turned out to be right? In that case there was NO WAY that any patriotic civilian could do the right thing. The law plays favorites against patriotism, especially in thuggish hellholes like Chicago. So sure, a man could keep...

    During the week of July 28, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) held hearings in four cities: Atlanta, Denver, Pittsburgh, and Washington. DC. The two-day sessions were to allow the public to have their voice heard about the proposed rules it released on June 2 that will supposedly cut CO2 emissions by 30 percent. Many, including myself, believe that these rules are really an attempt to shut down coal-fueled electricity generation and implement a cap-and-trade program that the Administration couldn’t get through Congress in 2009, when cap-and-trade’s obvious allies held both houses of Congress. If the EPA’s plans were clear, direct,...

    It may seem like a clever idea to save yourself cash by not purchasing health insurance, but with Obamacare kicking in, you’ll have penalties to pay, which could cost you big bucks in the long run. Not only are you playing financial Russian roulette – you could be forking out tens of thousands or hundreds of thousands of dollars if you’re injured in an accident or become seriously ill – you’ll also have to pay a penalty to the federal government for flouting the law, costing you hundreds or thousands of dollars more. A wiser decision if you’re uninsured is...

During the screening a large contingent of socialists and Muslims stormed into the room and interrupted the show.

    Says Obamacare leading U.S. down pathway to socialism The surge of bullet-buying confirmed by the federal government – purchase estimates run into the billions of bullets – even as the U.S. military scrimps to find training ammo is raising lots of questions about the government’s so-far unexplained actions. But a video that has been around since last year is being forwarded across the Internet as an explanation. The six minutes recorded by Lt. Gen. William G. “Jerry” Boykin, retired, warns that America is well along the pathway that other societies have used to bludgeon and beat their populations into submission...

    Jeff Knox: There's no constitutional justification for 150,000 federal cops During this heated election season, the politicians and the pundits banter back and forth about the economy, jobs and important social issues, with back-to-back TV commercials making claims and accusations followed immediately by the opposition’s counter-claims and counter-accusations. But in the midst of all of this political wrangling, the Obama administration’s war on gun owners – in the name of the war on crime, the war on drugs, the war on gun trafficking to Mexico and what used to be called the war on terror – rages on.
