  • The Sun Sets On Ontario’s Left Coast

    We’re still traveling in Canada - Ontario specifically -  which is beautiful despite a dearth of sunshine, a surplus of precipitation and a muted palate of autumn colors most likely due to a dryer than normal summer. There is no Fox news here, which I know you’ll say is no great loss, but after flipping through the news programming on offer – CNN and the equally slanted Canadian version, CBC – I assure you that Fox serves a vital purpose. If Canada has a similar balancing element I’ve not seen it. As our own MSM knows, it’s much easier to...

    Insurgent Democratic women running for Congress are pushing the party to rethink its approach to politics if they retake control of Capitol Hill in the fall. At the annual meeting of the Congressional Black Caucus Friday, black female candidates who prevailed in primaries over established incumbents said it’s time for a conversation about how the party is structured. They expressed frustration that the party is tilted against rising politicians — especially those of color — and argued that if Democrats flip the House in November, it would be the result of organization and turnout amount black voters, particularly women. If...
  • Congressional Black Caucus says Kavanaugh would weaken Voting Rights Act protections

    Members of the Congressional Black Caucus held a press conference on Thursday urging senators on the judiciary committee to reject the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh, President Trump's nominee to the Supreme Court. In the news conference lawmakers and civil rights activists argued that Kavanaugh would weaken provisions of the Voting Rights Act and be a general threat to civil rights on the Court. Not enough is known about Kavanaugh's potential views on issues including civil rights cases due to the Trump administration's unwillingness to release more documents related to his tenure as a White House lawyer. "We stand in solidarity...

    Rep. Alcee Hastings (D-FL) joked over the weekend that it would be a "catastrophe" if anybody jumped in after President Trump if he fell into the Potomac River, which goes through Washington, D.C. Hastings said he was borrowing the joke from Ari Silver, the son of former Florida state lawmaker Barry Silver. The Daily Caller has the video. “I will tell you one joke,” Hastings said at a rally in Sunshine, FL. “Do you know the difference between a crisis and a catastrophe?” “‘A crisis is if Donald Trump falls into the Potomac River and can’t swim,'” Hastings said, retelling...
  • Warren at black university: Criminal justice system ‘racist’

    Associated Press ^ | Aug. 03, 2018 10:54 PM EDT | Bill Barrow and Chevel Johnson
    Speaking Friday at a historically black university, potential Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren delivered what she called “the hard truth about our criminal justice system: It’s racist … I mean front to back.” The Massachusetts senator identified some of the system’s failures: disproportionate arrests of African-Americans for petty drug possession; an overloaded public defender system; and state laws that keep convicted felons from voting even after their sentences are complete. Warren was participating in a Q&A session hosted by Congressional Black Caucus Chairman Cedric Richmond at the historically black Dillard University in New Orleans. She was among several possible Democratic...

    Rep. Marcia Fudge (D-Ohio) said in a new interview that "it is more than a possibility - it's a probability" that the next House Speaker will be an African-American. Fudge told Politico that she backs Rep. Jim Clyburn (D-S.C.), who is currently the third-ranking House Democrat, for the position. Other black Democratic lawmakers who some have floated as successors to Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) if their party wins back a majority in the midterms include Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (N.Y.), chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC), Rep. Cedric Richmond (La.), Rep. Elijah Cummings (Md.) and Fudge, Politico reported. In an...

    Well, she’s at it again. Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) is calling for days of rage. Oh, and she’s sanctioned by God or something. Last week, the California liberal visited the First AME Church in Los Angeles, where she declared that God had sent her on a mission to get Trump (via American Mirror ): Video Wanting to address what people are reading on the “social internet,” she said, “We never dreamed we’d have someone in the White House who was divisive, who could not tell the truth, and who was intent on not making America great again, but taking...

Spokeswoman Brenda Jones told CNN that Lewis is under routine observation but she did not give details of the nature of his illness or where he is hospitalized. CNN affiliate WSB-TV reported that Lewis was being treated at a hospital in metro Atlanta, and the station quoted unnamed sources as saying Lewis became ill on a flight to Atlanta on Saturday.

    The Congressional Black Caucus is rallying behind Rep. Maxine Waters amid an escalating feud over the California Democrat’s call for protesters to confront administration officials wherever they go, while some Republicans are demanding Waters’s resignation.. In a statement Tuesday, CBC chairman Cedric L. Richmond (D-La.) issued a statement defending the 14-term lawmaker as someone who “has been a champion for justice her entire life.” He also pushed back against statements by President Trump and others who have cast Waters’s remarks at a Los Angeles rally Saturday as inciting violence. “In exercising her constitutional right to freedom of speech at a...

    Patrick Dussault took to Twitter and directed his threats to Chloe, Donald Trump Jr.’s four-year-old daughter. Conventional wisdom dictates anything a Canadian can do an American can do better. Not always the case. After Peter Fonda posted a tweet saying 12-year-old Barron Trump should be ripped from his mother’s arms and put in a cage with pedophiles, a Canadian Broadcasting Corporation comedy writer did the 78-year-old over-the-hill actor one better. If Fonda thought it was cool to threaten a 12-year-old, Patrick Dussault took to Twitter and directed his threats to Chloe, Donald Trump Jr.’s four-year-old daughter.

    Parents, only YOU can set your children free from classroom indoctrination When little school kids talk about what they are learning in class, it’s no longer about anything to do concerning the ‘Three Rs’, it’s about the Politics of Inclusion, which they learn through indoctrination. Self-acclaimed Patron Saint of Tolerance and Diversity Jessi Cruickshank leads children in this CBC video in a “rah!” “rah!” for Happy Pride Month, which according to Cruickshank, viewers “loved”.

    Before you watch this insanity, which made the social media rounds this week, may I remind you that Senator Barack Obama met privately with, and complimented, this man at an event coordinated by the Congressional Black Caucus -- a disgrace that was deliberately hidden from voters until Obama was safely out of office?  May I also remind you that numerous CBC members have courted this man's support, including the current deputy DNC Chairman, who hasn't been truthful about the nature of that relationship?  As I've previously argued, "minister" Louis Farrakhan is the Left's version of David Duke, in that...

    A federal cabinet minister says a directive to Service Canada agents telling them to use gender-neutral language — such as “parent” instead of “mother” or “father” — when speaking to the public was badly worded and will be corrected. The directive, obtained by Radio Canada, the French-language arm of CBC, instructs Service Canada employees who interact with the public to stay away from terms such as Mr., Mrs., father and mother, and to “use gender-neutral language or gender-inclusive language.” “This avoids portraying a perceived bias toward a particular sex or gender,” says a copy of speaking notes prepared for managers...

    The practice of lawmakers bunking in their offices is unsanitary — and an abuse of taxpayer funds, according to members of the Congressional Black Caucus. A bloc of House Democrats is calling for an ethics investigation into the widespread practice of lawmakers sleeping in their offices, arguing it's an abuse of taxpayer funds. More than two dozen members of the Congressional Black Caucus signed on to a letter obtained by POLITICO to Ethics Committee Chairwoman Susan Brooks (R-Ind.) and ranking member Ted Deutch (D-Fla.) asking for a probe into the “legality and propriety” of such conduct by members of Congress....

    At his first polygraph test to enter the CIA, the future director had a secret. John Brennan on Thursday recalled being asked a standard question for a top security clearance at his early CIA lie detector test: Have you ever worked with or for a group that was dedicated to overthrowing the US? "I froze," Brennan said during a panel discussion about diversity in the intelligence community at the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation's annual conference. "This was back in 1980, and I thought back to a previous election where I voted, and I voted for the Communist Party candidate,"

    When Obama met with Farrakhan, it was under the auspices of the Congressional Black Caucus. It wasn’t the first or last time that the CBC had been caught in bed with the hate group leader. And CBC members have never been ashamed of their ties to a racist who had praised Hitler as a “great man”. “I’ve been to his home, done meetings, participated in events with him,” Rep. Danny Davis declared. “I don’t regard Louis Farrakhan as an aberration or anything, I regard him as an outstanding human being.” The CBC won’t sanction Rep. Davis for saying that. In...

    Three Democratic congressmen attended a private dinner hosted by Iranian President Hassan Rouhani in 2013, a new report reveals. Reps. Keith Ellison of Minnesota, Andre Carson of Indiana and Gregory Meeks of New York attended the private dinner, along with Louis Farrakhan, a notorious anti-Semite who leads the black supremacist group Nation of Islam. Iran is the number one state sponsor of terrorism, according to the United States government, which has listed the Islamic Republic as a state sponsor of terror since 1984. Rouhani was in New York for a United Nations meeting and held the dinner party just hours...

    Perhaps the word “swoon” in the headline strikes some of my amigos as unnecessarily hyperbolic?—as typical “click-bait?”Fair enough. Let’s have a closer look at the issue for a more accurate evaluation. Here’s indignant Trump SOTU boycotter Barbara Lee (D-CA) explaining her indignation and boycott:“On January 20th, I will not be celebrating or honoring an incoming president who rode racism, sexism, xenophobia and bigotry to the White House."Now here’s Lee upon “copping a backstage pass” (so to speak) upon one of her frequent red-carpet visits to Cuba to “meet and greet” the jailer and torturer of the most and longest suffering black,...

    Liberal legislators and members of the Congressional Black Caucus were caught-red handed this week; reading and playing video games on their mobile phones while President Trump delivered his first State of the Union address to the American people. Images first surfaced on the internet of Michigan Rep. Brenda Lawrence typing-away on her smart phone as the Commander-in-Chief outlined his vision for 2018 and beyond. Upon further inspection, the photos showed Rep. Lawrence playing popular web-based game Candy Crush in the middle of the address. “That State of the Union is put out an hour in advance so Democrats and Republicans...
